Editor’s Note: Do all too many things in the news cycle just make you mad? Irritate you? Make you swear? Push your buttons? Likely enough, it happens all the time, and there’s a good reason why.

We are continually lied to and deceived by the mass media and our government institutions. Professionally-crafted propaganda techniques to frame the story and, in many cases, to advance totally fabricated events, have been used to goad on the population and gain support for the State, even at the expense of what is best for the people.

Is not just that secretive agencies including the CIA are institutional liars, or that our elected representatives and selected officials operate as professional liars, there is a concerted effort to use “psyops” or psychological warfare against the people – to use emotion and distorted facts to control the opinions, and therefore the public attitude of of what is permissible among the general population. This has always been used by those in power, but technology and better understanding of mass psychology has made this very targeted. With a lifting of the ban on propaganda in 2013 it has also become officially legal in the age of the “cyber war” and “information operations” in which military and other personal consider public perception as part of their battlefield.

As 1984 author George Orwell declared, “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” Lies are the foundation of the establishment, and the officials of that system operate based on lies.

The CIA and Other Government Agencies Have Long Used Propaganda Against the American People

The Government’s Been Deploying Propaganda On U.S. Soil for Many Years

The United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities found in 1975 that the CIA submitted stories to the American press:

Wikipedia adds details:

After 1953, the network was overseen by Allen W. Dulles, director of the CIA. By this time, Operation Mockingbird had a major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. The usual methodology was placing reports developed from intelligence provided by the CIA to witting or unwitting reporters. Those reports would then be repeated or cited by the preceding reporters which in turn would then be cited throughout the media wire services.

The Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) was funded by siphoning off funds intended for the Marshall Plan [i.e. the rebuilding of Europe by the U.S. after WWII]. Some of this money was used to bribe journalists and publishers.

In 2008, the New York Times wrote:

During the early years of the cold war, [prominent writers and artists, from Arthur Schlesinger Jr. to Jackson Pollock] were supported, sometimes lavishly, always secretly, by the C.I.A. as part of its propaganda war against the Soviet Union. It was perhaps the most successful use of “soft power” in American history.

A CIA operative told Washington Post editor Philip Graham … in a conversation about the willingness of journalists to peddle CIA propaganda and cover stories:

You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month.

Famed Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein wrote in 1977:

More than 400 American journalists … in the past twenty‑five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency, according to documents on file at CIA headquarters.

***

In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.

***

Among the executives who lent their cooperation to the Agency were [the heads of CBS, Time, the New York Times, the Louisville Courier‑Journal, and Copley News Service. Other organizations which cooperated with the CIA include [ABC, NBC, AP, UPI, Reuters], Hearst Newspapers, Scripps‑Howard, Newsweek magazine, the Mutual Broadcasting System, the Miami Herald and the old Saturday Evening Post and New York Herald‑Tribune.

***

There is ample evidence that America’s leading publishers and news executives allowed themselves and their organizations to become handmaidens to the intelligence services. “Let’s not pick on some poor reporters, for God’s sake,” William Colby exclaimed at one point to the Church committee’s investigators. “Let’s go to the managements.

***

The CIA even ran a formal training program in the 1950s to teach its agents to be journalists. Intelligence officers were “taught to make noises like reporters,” explained a high CIA official, and were then placed in major news organizations with help from management.

***

Once a year during the 1950s and early 1960s, CBS correspondents joined the CIA hierarchy for private dinners and briefings.

***

Allen Dulles often interceded with his good friend, the late Henry Luce, founder of Time and Life magazines, who readily allowed certain members of his staff to work for the Agency and agreed to provide jobs and credentials for other CIA operatives who lacked journalistic experience.

***

In the 1950s and early 1960s, Time magazine’s foreign correspondents attended CIA “briefing” dinners similar to those the CIA held for CBS.

***

When Newsweek waspurchased by the Washington Post Company, publisher Philip L. Graham was informed by Agency officials that the CIA occasionally used the magazine for cover purposes, according to CIA sources. “It was widely known that Phil Graham was somebody you could get help from,” said a former deputy director of the Agency. “Frank Wisner dealt with him.” Wisner, deputy director of the CIA from 1950 until shortly before his suicide in 1965, was the Agency’s premier orchestrator of “black” operations, including many in which journalists were involved. Wisner liked to boast of his “mighty Wurlitzer,” a wondrous propaganda instrument he built, and played, with help from the press.)

***

In November 1973, after [the CIA claimed to have ended the program], Colby told reporters and editors from the New York Times and the Washington Star that the Agency had “some three dozen” American newsmen “on the CIA payroll,” including five who worked for “general‑circulation news organizations.” Yet even while the Senate Intelligence Committee was holding its hearings in 1976, according to high‑level CIA sources, the CIA continued to maintain ties with seventy‑five to ninety journalists of every description—executives, reporters, stringers, photographers, columnists, bureau clerks and members of broadcast technical crews. More than half of these had been moved off CIA contracts and payrolls but they were still bound by other secret agreements with the Agency. According to an unpublished report by the House Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired by Representative Otis Pike, at least fifteen news organizations were still providing cover for CIA operatives as of 1976.

***

Those officials most knowledgeable about the subject say that a figure of 400 American journalists is on the low side ….

“There were a lot of representations that if this stuff got out some of the biggest names in journalism would get smeared” ….

Former Newsweek and Associated Press reporter Robert Parry notes that Ronald Reagan and the CIA unleashed a propaganda campaign in the 1980’s to sell the American public on supporting the Contra rebels, utilizing private players such as Rupert Murdoch to spread disinformation:

Reagan-MurdochPresident Ronald Reagan meeting with media magnate Rupert Murdoch in the Oval Office on Jan. 18, 1983, with Charles Wick, director of the U.S. Information Agency, in the background. (Photo credit: Reagan presidential library)

In the 1980s, the Reagan administration was determined to “kick the Vietnam Syndrome,” the revulsion that many Americans felt for warfare after all those years in the blood-soaked jungles of Vietnam and all the lies that clumsily justified the war.

So, the challenge for the U.S. government became: how to present the actions of “enemies” always in the darkest light while bathing the behavior of the U.S. “side” in a rosy glow. You also had to stage this propaganda theater in an ostensibly “free country” with a supposedly “independent press.”

From documents declassified or leaked over the past several decades, including an unpublished draft chapter of the congressional Iran-Contra investigation, we now know a great deal about how this remarkable project was undertaken and who the key players were.

Perhaps not surprisingly much of the initiative came from the Central Intelligence Agency, which housed the expertise for manipulating target populations through propaganda and disinformation. The only difference this time would be that the American people would be the target population.

For this project, Ronald Reagan’s CIA Director William J. Casey sent his top propaganda specialist Walter Raymond Jr. to the National Security Council staff to manage the inter-agency task forces that would brainstorm and coordinate this “public diplomacy” strategy.

Many of the old intelligence operatives, including Casey and Raymond, are now dead, but other influential Washington figures who were deeply involved by these strategies remain, such as neocon stalwart Robert Kagan, whose first major job in Washington was as chief of Reagan’s State Department Office of Public Diplomacy for Latin America.

***

Declassified documents now reveal how extensive Reagan’s propaganda project became with inter-agency task forces assigned to develop “themes” that would push American “hot buttons.” Scores of documents came out during the Iran-Contra scandal in 1987 and hundreds more are now available at the Reagan presidential library in Simi Valley, California.

What the documents reveal is that at the start of the Reagan administration, CIA Director Casey faced a daunting challenge in trying to rally public opinion behind aggressive U.S. interventions, especially in Central America. Bitter memories of the Vietnam War were still fresh and many Americans were horrified at the brutality of right-wing regimes in Guatemala and El Salvador, where Salvadoran soldiers raped and murdered four American churchwomen in December 1980.

The new leftist Sandinista government in Nicaragua also was not viewed with much alarm. After all, Nicaragua was an impoverished country of only about three million people who had just cast off the brutal dictatorship of Anastasio Somoza.

So, Reagan’s initial strategy of bolstering the Salvadoran and Guatemalan armies required defusing the negative publicity about them and somehow rallying the American people into supporting a covert CIA intervention inside Nicaragua via a counterrevolutionary force known as the Contras led by Somoza’s ex-National Guard officers.

Reagan’s task was made tougher by the fact that the Cold War’s anti-communist arguments had so recently been discredited in Vietnam. As deputy assistant secretary to the Air Force, J. Michael Kelly, put it, “the most critical special operations mission we have … is to persuade the American people that the communists are out to get us.”

***

According to the draft report, the CIA officer who was recruited for the NSC job had served as Director of the Covert Action Staff at the CIA from 1978 to 1982 and was a “specialist in propaganda and disinformation.”

***

federal law forbade taxpayers’ money from being spent on domestic propaganda or grassroots lobbying to pressure congressional representatives. Of course, every president and his team had vast resources to make their case in public, but by tradition and law, they were restricted to speeches, testimony and one-on-one persuasion of lawmakers.

But things were about to change. In a Jan. 13, 1983, memo, NSC Advisor Clark foresaw the need for non-governmental money to advance this cause. “We will develop a scenario for obtaining private funding,” Clark wrote. (Just five days later, President Reagan personally welcomed media magnate Rupert Murdoch into the Oval Office for a private meeting, according to records on file at the Reagan library.)

As administration officials reached out to wealthy supporters, lines against domestic propaganda soon were crossed as the operation took aim not only at foreign audiences but at U.S. public opinion, the press and congressional Democrats who opposed funding the Nicaraguan Contras.

At the time, the Contras were earning a gruesome reputation as human rights violators and terrorists. To change this negative perception of the Contras as well as of the U.S.-backed regimes in El Salvador and Guatemala, the Reagan administration created a full-blown, clandestine propaganda network.

In January 1983, President Reagan took the first formal step to create this unprecedented peacetime propaganda bureaucracy by signing National Security Decision Directive 77, entitled “Management of Public Diplomacy Relative to National Security.” Reagan deemed it “necessary to strengthen the organization, planning and coordination of the various aspects of public diplomacy of the United States Government.”

Reagan ordered the creation of a special planning group within the National Security Council to direct these “public diplomacy” campaigns. The planning group would be headed by the CIA’s Walter Raymond Jr. and one of its principal arms would be a new Office of Public Diplomacy for Latin America, housed at the State Department but under the control of the NSC.

***

In the memo to then-U.S. Information Agency director Charles Wick, Raymond also noted that “via Murdock [sic] may be able to draw down added funds” to support pro-Reagan initiatives. Raymond’s reference to Rupert Murdoch possibly drawing down “added funds” suggests that the right-wing media mogul had been recruited to be part of the covert propaganda operation. During this period, Wick arranged at least two face-to-face meetings between Murdoch and Reagan.

***

Alarmed at a CIA director participating so brazenly in domestic propaganda, Raymond wrote that “I philosophized a bit with Bill Casey (in an effort to get him out of the loop)” but with little success.

***

Another part of the office’s job was to plant “white propaganda” in the news media through op-eds secretly financed by the government. In one memo, Jonathan Miller, a senior public diplomacy official, informed White House aide Patrick Buchanan about success placing an anti-Sandinista piece in The Wall Street Journal’s friendly pages. “Officially, this office had no role in its preparation,” Miller wrote.

Other times, the administration put out “black propaganda,” outright falsehoods. In 1983, one such theme was designed to anger American Jews by portraying the Sandinistas as anti-Semitic because much of Nicaragua’s small Jewish community fled after the revolution in 1979.

However, the U.S. embassy in Managua investigated the charges and “found no verifiable ground on which to accuse the GRN [the Sandinista government] of anti-Semitism,” according to a July 28, 1983, cable. But the administration kept the cable secret and pushed the “hot button” anyway.

***

As one NSC official told me, the campaign was modeled after CIA covert operations abroad where a political goal is more important than the truth. “They were trying to manipulate [U.S.] public opinion … using the tools of Walt Raymond’s trade craft which he learned from his career in the CIA covert operation shop,” the official admitted.

Another administration official gave a similar description to The Miami Herald’s Alfonso Chardy. “If you look at it as a whole, the Office of Public Diplomacy was carrying out a huge psychological operation, the kind the military conduct to influence the population in denied or enemy territory,” that official explained. [For more details, see Parry’s Lost History.]

Parry notes that many of the same people that led Reagan’s domestic propaganda effort in the 1980’s are in power today:

While the older generation that pioneered these domestic propaganda techniques has passed from the scene, many of their protégés are still around along with some of the same organizations. The National Endowment for Democracy, which was formed in 1983 at the urging of CIA Director Casey and under the supervision of Walter Raymond’s NSC operation, is still run by the same neocon, Carl Gershman, and has an even bigger budget, now exceeding $100 million a year.

Gershman and his NED played important behind-the-scenes roles in instigating the Ukraine crisis by financing activists, journalists and other operatives who supported the coup against elected President Yanukovych. The NED-backed Freedom House also beat the propaganda drums. [See Consortiumnews.com’s “A Shadow Foreign Policy.”]

Two other Reagan-era veterans, Elliott Abrams and Robert Kagan, have both provided important intellectual support for continuing U.S. interventionism around the world. Earlier this year, Kagan’s article for The New Republic, entitled “Superpowers Don’t Get to Retire,” touched such a raw nerve with President Obama that he hosted Kagan at a White House lunch and crafted the presidential commencement speech at West Point to deflect some of Kagan’s criticism of Obama’s hesitancy to use military force.

***

Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is bigger than ever ….

An expert on propaganda testified under oath during trial that the CIA now employs THOUSANDS of reporters and OWNS its own media organizations. Whether or not his estimate is accurate, it is clear that many prominent reporters still report to the CIA.

John Pilger is a highly-regarded journalist (the BBC’s world affairs editor John Simpson remarked, “A country that does not have a John Pilger in its journalism is a very feeble place indeed”). Pilger said in 2007:

We now know that the BBC and other British media were used by the British secret intelligence service MI-6. In what they called Operation Mass Appeal, MI-6 agents planted stories about Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction, such as weapons hidden in his palaces and in secret underground bunkers. All of these stories were fake.

***

One of my favorite stories about the Cold War concerns a group of Russian journalists who were touring the United States. On the final day of their visit, they were asked by the host for their impressions. “I have to tell you,” said the spokesman, “that we were astonished to find after reading all the newspapers and watching TV day after day that all the opinions on all the vital issues are the same. To get that result in our country we send journalists to the gulag. We even tear out their fingernails. Here you don’t have to do any of that. What is the secret?”

Nick Davies wrote in the Independent in 2008:

For the first time in human history, there is a concerted strategy to manipulate global perception. And the mass media are operating as its compliant assistants, failing both to resist it and to expose it.

The sheer ease with which this machinery has been able to do its work reflects a creeping structural weakness which now afflicts the production of our news. I’ve spent the last two years researching a book about falsehood, distortion and propaganda in the global media.

The “Zarqawi letter” which made it on to the front page of The New York Times in February 2004 was one of a sequence of highly suspect documents which were said to have been written either by or to Zarqawi and which were fed into news media.

This material is being generated, in part, by intelligence agencies who continue to work without effective oversight; and also by a new and essentially benign structure of “strategic communications” which was originally designed by doves in the Pentagon and Nato who wanted to use subtle and non-violent tactics to deal with Islamist terrorism but whose efforts are poorly regulated and badly supervised with the result that some of its practitioners are breaking loose and engaging in the black arts of propaganda.

***

The Pentagon has now designated “information operations” as its fifth “core competency” alongside land, sea, air and special forces. Since October 2006, every brigade, division and corps in the US military has had its own “psyop” element producing output for local media. This military activity is linked to the State Department’s campaign of “public diplomacy” which includes funding radio stations and news websites. In Britain, the Directorate of Targeting and Information Operations in the Ministry of Defence works with specialists from 15 UK psyops, based at the Defence Intelligence and Security School at Chicksands in Bedfordshire.

In the case of British intelligence, you can see this combination of reckless propaganda and failure of oversight at work in the case of Operation Mass Appeal. This was exposed by the former UN arms inspector Scott Ritter, who describes in his book, Iraq Confidential, how, in London in June 1998, he was introduced to two “black propaganda specialists” from MI6 who wanted him to give them material which they could spread through “editors and writers who work with us from time to time”.

The government is still paying off reporters to spread disinformation. And the corporate media are acting like virtual “escort services” for the moneyed elites, selling access – for a price – to powerful government officials, instead of actually investigating and reporting on what those officials are doing.

Of course, the Web has become a huge media platform, and the Pentagon and other government agencies are influencing news on the web as well. Documents released by Snowden show that spies manipulate polls, website popularity and pageview counts, censor videos they don’t like and amplify messages they do.

The CIA and other government agencies also put enormous energy into pushing propaganda through movies, television and video games.

In 2012, the Pentagon launched a massive smear campaign against USA Today reporters investigating unlawful domestic propaganda by the Pentagon.

And last year, the American Congress repealed the formal ban against the deployment of propaganda against U.S. citizens living on American soil. So there’s even less to constrain propaganda than before.

End Notes: 

(1) One of the most common uses of propaganda is to sell unnecessary and counter-productive wars.  Given that the American media is always pro-war, mainstream publishers, producers, editors, and reporters are willing participants.

(2) A 4-part BBC documentary called the “Century of the Self” shows that an American – Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays – created the modern field of manipulation of public perceptions, and the U.S. government has extensively used his techniques.

(3) Sometimes, the government plants disinformation in American media in order to mislead foreigners. For example, an official government summary of America’s overthrow of the democratically-elected president of Iran in the 1950′s states, “In cooperation with the Department of State, CIA had several articles planted in major American newspapers and magazines which, when reproduced in Iran, had the desired psychological effect in Iran and contributed to the war of nerves against Mossadeq” (page x).

      The American People Are Utterly Clueless About What Is Going To Happen As We Enter 2015

      “The American people are feeling really good right about now. For example, Gallup’s economic confidence index has hit the highest level that we have seen since the last recession.

      In addition, nearly half of all Americans believe that 2015 will be a better year than 2014 was, and only about 10 percent believe that it will be a worse year. And a lot of people are generally feeling quite good about the people that have been leading our nation.

      Unfortunately, when things seem to be going well common sense tends to go out the window. Sadly, what we are experiencing right now is so similar to what we witnessed in 2007 and early 2008.

      The stock market had been on a great run, people were flipping houses like crazy and most people were convinced that the party would never end. But then it did end – very painfully.”

          AWWWW But to be a CIA agent. It would be very interesting and so much fun to sit back and watch sites like this and others, after you put out disinformation and made comments on various subject, to stir up hate and discontent among the masses. And then record peoples responses to the articles that are dispensed. I have often thought how it would be, to just go back for 1 year and pick any 10 people that make comments often and see how much info you could build on each of them just by what they have said. The NSA can do this so easily with the tech that they have. But I’m sure none of these Government Agencies have thought of this, nor would they do it. Trekker Out. I’ve Said To Much!

I sure wish our Idiot politicians would a yop getting sucked into the Jews war trap to divide and fleece our country. I’d tell Israel to go fight their own wars. Put your boots on the ground.

          I dunno – here in Britain the stupidity of the general public constantly astounds me.

          We too are being told things are great economically – yet we can all see how grocery prices are rising month on month, how the queues at the food banks keep lengthening etc, etc. Our BBC puts out nonsense the old Soviet media outlets would have been ashamed to, so fantastical is the “journalism”. What is even more interesting is what is NOT reported. e.g Given our proximity & economic dependence on Europe the news blackout on the civil unrest and protests on the Continent has been telling.

          Knowing that the media will NOT tell you, if there is a serious threat in your locale, forces you to hone your situational awareness skills.

          In the mean time I have cause to give thanks, that keeping a pantry etc has become a routine and that more & more our prepping has moved into the “lifestyle” category. The further removed from the system we are, the less vulnerable we are when it fails. The only real suprise for any of us at this stage, should be how far they managed to kick that can down the road.

      Ironic so Few readers and so few reply posters even on this huge expose topic eh?…Must be due to so many folks cannot Handle such outright factual proved truth such as the article sentence I included here eh. Right…Because this type expose’ info facts means if the fed govnt/state dept/cia Lied about “antisemitism activity” there and then…When Else have they copy-catted it to do likewise again and again?! Especially leading up to and during WWII events and ever since end of WWII right..

      Such factual expose truths are just too, too, difficult for most brainwashed deluded sheeps to accept…Except of course for those few of Us that relish and seek out factual truths like this so to warn others still UNawake to it all eh…Now watch the red thumbers army emerge in droves! Or maybe my reply here wont ever get seen due to censorship of everything I try to post lately.

      Either way Real Patriot Americans, and likewise Real true Christians will Never cease in seeking and speaking Facts based truths like I and several others here do. Just glad to finally see articles which fully prove what I write about usually eh! ok have at it Red thumb Goats brigade!

    Very good article, even though I knew about this years ago. I’ll be back after dinner to reread it.

      Sixpack, this is definitely old news, but at least now more details re coming to light. I first heard of this on William Cooper’s “The Hour Of The Time” radio show on shortwave back in the 90s. I’ll bet a dollar to a doughnut the CIA still has the same arrangement with all of today’s players in the MSM.

      • Overwatch says:

        @ Braveheart, I used to listen to that lineup every night on shortwave. There was a glorious subversive quality to listening, like we were the resistance. Between the static fading in and out, his dramatic delivery, the intro with the jackboots and air raid sirens, that was great radio. On top of all that, the man was batshit crazy. His interview with Aaron Russo was the best example. Everything was going great, they were having a lovefest about Russo’s NWO VHS tape and then, at about 55 minutes into the show, Russo said something wrong. I forget what it was. Cooper launched into an ass chewing worthy of a drill sergeant. He buried Russo in a string of invective that ended the show. I couldn’t wait until the next episode.

    So those so called “conspiracy theorist’s ” were right after all. This type of government bullshit is the base of it all it seems.

      I keep telling you all here Religion is the same BS propaganda and the book of Bible stories that robs mankind of any rational thought, then reinforced by singing hymms and even got some of you financially committed to buying into religion with money. I’d tell you to back to your church and get a refund. You stoopid sheep just got fleeced.

    Way back in the 40’s and 50’s there was people called ‘promoters’ that were basically like carnivals and circus’s that traveled around from town to town putting on shows. Anyway this promoter went to this small town and put up a huge sign saying “ITS COMING!” A few weeks later another sign appeared saying “IT’LL BE HERE!” A few weeks later a new sign appeared “IT’LL BE HERE AUG. 2nd!”
    By this time everybody wanted to see “IT” whatever “IT” was. Tickets went on sale and were soon sold out. Then on Aug 1’st assign went up over the local movie theater saying “IT’S HERE!” show starts at 8:pm on the 2nd. OMG the people were in a tizzy to see “IT.” The meet day at showtime the promoter told his helper who was selling tickets for the ‘standing’ folks, “to go raise the curtain its time for the show.”
    The helper went quickly to the backstage area and raised the curtain and there was another sign saying “ITS GONE!”

    There really is “No new thing under the sun.”
    God bless.

    The hot topics of today are feminism and race-baiting. Feminism is the worst scum of propaganda, when the feminists label all men as rapists, while in fact. There are more incidents of female teachers sleeping with under-18 students than before.

    4th wave feminism is the nudity feminism created by the likes of the Toronto Slut Walk and other Canadian feminists.

    Diversity is not our strength and the Canadians shall not spread their socialism onto the U.S.A. because America was built on family values, and not some half-naked teacher who complains that it’s her right to dress risque in the office environment.

  10. Interner and shortwave radio are far more accurate than MSM, BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO TAKE IT ALL WITH A GRAIN OF SALT SO KEEP THAT SHAKER HANDY!

    • the renegade braveheart says:

      88, that’s true that even in alternative media you have to go through all the sources one by one very carefully. Some of them are just as bad as MSM.

      • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

        Go through the Bible sometime, line by line looking for any facts, proof, truth or evidence to substantiate it. One fact you will find in the bible is, black ink printed on paper.

    We will NEVER know what REALLY goes on. I’ve known that much for most of my adult life.
    I also know that most people do not CARE to know what really goes on.
    I’m at that point now.
    Because the truth is abut 95% non existent at this point.
    All people do is speculate.

    • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

      God woke up mankind at 5AM and said “Gather round and watch me create another miracle. God said “Behold let there be light.” And sure enough the sun arose from the ground and the sky became lit up with light. The crowd got so excited and begged “do it again, do it again” and God said OK. Meet me here again the same time tomorrow.

          Yes it sure does, every day, but stupid sheeple continue to be stupid sheeple and believe that is God doing that miracle, God created this and that, and Geezuss will miraculously come back and save them.

    Did someone say CIA? 😉
    Get ready for ‘Son of CIA’… JEB! Coming soon to a theatre of war near you!
    You’re gonna’ love him- he’s ‘the smart one’.
    Unlike Obama, who is lying whenever his lips are moving, Jeb’s a little different-

    Jeb will have a rather broad smile on his face… He’ll add a little snicker – as he often has a tendency of doing. Also little beads of sweat will form on his forehead…

    There may be some interesting ‘accidents’ and such happening to some folks down in Florida soon, as ole Jeb jockeys for position, so Hey- grab the popcorn, folks. And don’t worry about it really hitting the fan until Jeb gets in- THEN they’ll put the capstone on this mother.

    Ooh they are lying to us this the oldest news there is what a joke they gotta drive it home right that’s fine I’m working on a way to reverse engineer lies to get the truth ha ha .these lies all have the same pattern someone needs to make an app that takes news clips and does this in real time you will be rich and will expose the liars immediately and they will quit their position their credibility is gone .we all know they are writing the story as they go along and have to lie to make the outcome what they want . We are now officially the united socialist states of America ussa get rid of your cable tv and you will still get your serving propaganda why pay for it

  18. Doorman says:

    The American media and most, if not all main media throughout the world is controlled by those people in power who want to control the masses according to the will of those in charge, regardless of what the will of the people is.

    Truth is something that has to be sought after because we live in a world that for now is controlled by evil. It’s always been that way for mankind, especially since the fall of man. Anyone who is to lazy to seek truth will inevitably be deceived.

    Truth can be found and that’s the good news. No matter what the deceiving cowards in the CIA and government do to suppress the truth, the truth will always be able to be found. It has been set up this way by someone who is much larger and much more in charge than the CIA and government pretenders.

    7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

    8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Matthew 7:7, 8)

    • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

      A few years back the local newspaper called me wondering why I stopped getting their daily news paper. I said flat out. Why would I pay for a paper that is full of lies and propaganda all shoveled in by the AP cut and paste media. The guy was silent, paused .. then said OK, and hung up.

  19. Ass hat says:

    Off topic start raising your christian children to hate Muslims this is what Muslims are doing they are raising their kids to hate the west and Christians and Jews not gonna teach my kid to sacrifice himself in the name of god but that god loves him and wants him to be prepared to take up a rifle and rid the earth of evil . I mean you don’t just want to kill some of the rodents you want them all dead that is the only way you will get rid of the infestation. This is how I’m gonna teach my kids. they are young now and I feel the problem will be worst later and they will remember what I said to them and take it seriously . Now it’s not just the Jews who are hated but Christians now too we read bible together. And thou shall not kill doesn’t mean don’t stand up for your self going around killing people for nothing is wrong but killing these evil people who attack indescriminetly because they don’t like that you are a Jew or Christian or American is justified IMHO now I’m not saying be like them but I don’t see a solution peacefully happening. I believe Israel is holding back because they don’t want to be the villain and want to give a chance for peace but they know what needs to be done. Total extermination of Muslims . With Jesus there is always hope these people will smarten up . To me christian and Jews should stand together as brothers against Islam and teach children at the age of ten war skills these kids will fight the future war if we start them young they will have a leg up on the enemy . We can have war camps for kids and teach them the concept of brotherhood and they will grow together a bond that will make them strong with a sense of duty to stand for what is right .not that boyscout crap it is weak it not like it used to be . They have failed miserably in raising young men IMHO . Pulled my kid out those kids are babied it’s like a little club now . Evil is like a cancer it spreads if you don’t kill it right away. Remember just because you are a christian doesn’t mean you have to be a pushover. I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

    • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

      Ass hat. Jews hate Christians. Stop propping up and supporting the Jews and much of the hate towards Christians would be solved. Its the Jew propaganda drawing stoopid Christians into a fight that is the Jews . The most hated cult on the planet. Christians are so easily duped.

    • Nobama says:

      Better yet, stop brain-washing your children with propaganda bible BS and all that fictional Jesus and Moses crap and fearmongering that non-believers are gonna burn in a stupid lake of fire. You lie to your kids, they will become liars back to you. Teach them the truth. Teach them that religions and greed are why the world is always at war.

      • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

        Nobama, and then parents wonder why kids lie to their parents and do drugs. Its one of the ways they cope to being lied to about everything from birth to grave.

        Here is the list of lies kids are told in their lives, includes but no limited to:
        Santa Clause,
        Easter Bunny,
        Jesus and ever lasting life,
        Education will get you a good job, college education will get you into debt slavery.
        Join the Military and protect our freedoms. And profits for Wall Street.
        American Dream – Cars, House, kids, In debt up to your eyeballs.
        And Social Security is a safety net to carry you through retirement. And in reality you can choose between eating or buying medicine.

        • Whooops,

          Kids just got done with home schooling for the day and I asked for five verses from His word. The 3 oldest quoted for me Proverbs 22:6, Hosea 4:6, John 3:16, Philippians 4:6 and James 2:17. Tonight Dad will add averse dealing with praising and worshiping Him.

          We also teach our children True law among other things. If God tarries on, the fight most on here talk about on a daily basis, will NOT be ours (I am in my 40’s) as much as it will be our children’s.

          Teach your children well…..a lot is riding on it.

  20. WalkingHeartAttack says:

    I would love to say, start a public access TV show, and be the media. But it ain’t enough. You need to recognize these crap stories and destroy these fascist networks public file. COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN. Quit going to the public file and writing, “I really loved Jill’s cooking TV show” , get your butt down there and talk about how they do not deserve a frequency allocation or station ID and they do not deserve to be Broadcasting on the PUBLIC SPECTRUM — in fact study the spectrum and know it. Fight everything the FCC does. These fascist FCC board are also in the pockets of big money, they regulate power and frequency in the CORPORATE INTEREST, and have TOSSED OUT their original mission statement. After screwing up the PUBLIC SPECTRUM the FCC now wants to get into your CAT5 Coax and the internet.

    They don’t have the authority, and if they do it’s cause they MADE THE CRAP UP, and it needs to be REMOVED FROM THEM ASAP.

    You can not look at the public spectrum with a straight face and tell me the FCC has managed power and frequency in the public interest.

    Which is probably why they threw out their mission statement.

    I have breaking news for the clueless among you,
    “A cheap CELL PHONE isn’t the 1st Amendment!” No your OBAMAPHONE isn’t your 1st amendment rights, IT CAME FROM GOD ANYWAY, not these fascist jackals.

    • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

      The FCC needs to break up the media into a million pieces. 95% of the media today is owned and controlled by 5 people. The airwaves are supposed to belong to the public. Not some monopoly corporation. But the Prostitutes in Congress don’t want the public to know the truth. And like the message flow to be controlled.

  21. Kevin2 says:

    If an individual, or entity, has an interest in getting you to move in any given direction thoroughly question the reasons they give to get you to move in that direction. If money is part of that interest, double your investigation. Most likely their reasoning is embellished at best and is fraudulent at worst.

  22. Jim in Va. says:

    ok,ok,ok….Does that mean the moon landing never happened? Oswald didn’t shoot Kennedy? The Koreans didn’t hack Sony? Did I prep for nothing? I’m getting dizzy…….

    Jim, you’re right about everything except prepping for nothing. Quite the contrary, more reason TO prep…
