Watchman On the Wall: Propaganda

“Information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of government.”

“Know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free.”

Operation Mockingbird was a CIA Program of the 1950s that recruited journalists to write with a CIA bias and targeted any person, group or entity that did not agree. CIA Director William Colby testified that over 400 CIA agents were involved in disinformation and working with journalists. The method was to deliberately report misinformation, spread it from network to network, throughout magazines, TV and newspapers, so that the public would eventually believe it. “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” William Colby 1981.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister”

“I’ve been a journalist for 25 years. I was educated to lie, to betray and not to tell the truth to the public. But seeing how the German and the American media try to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia . . . this is the point of no return. I’m going to stand up and say it’s not right what I’ve done in the past to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia. And it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past not only in Germany but all over the Europe.”

This Propaganda subterfuge supposedly ended when George H.W. Bush became director of the CIA. The program for paying journalists for cooperation was eventually made known to the public in 2007 when it was declassified in a 30-year-old report under the name of “Family Jewels,” written by William Colby, the CIA Director in the mid-70s.

Then, in 2013, President Obama repealed the Anti-Propaganda ban, to free journalists to once again use propaganda against Americans.

Once again the media has been turned loose to lie to the American public with impunity.

How is this possible that so many media outlets would be involved? There are only four companies that own 90 percent of the media. National Amusements owns CBS and VIACOM. Disney owns ABC. TimeWarner / AT&T owns Time, Life. Comcast owns NBC. However, when you do an Internet search they each own at least a dozen other companies in Internet, amusement, newspapers and magazines, TV and film. They are controlling the narrative on all fronts.

Censorship has become rampant. Google, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook are extremely liberal, and if anything is posted that is in disagreement with their liberal narrative, it is immediately removed. Controlled Opposition is a protest movement that is actually led by government agents. Nearly all governments in history have deployed this technique to trick and subdue their adversaries. Now this technique is being used on all conservative groups whether it is the Republican party, Christian pastors, Pro-life groups, anyone and anybody who opposes Socialism, Communism and George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
