An essentially pointless video of a white Catholic teen wearing a MAGA hat staring at a Native American veteran—who approached him—was at the forefront of every major news outlet this week. The video did not show a crime or government corruption, yet it was able to draw a line through this country on a massive scale. The video is being used by both sides of the political spectrum to paint the other side as monsters. Regardless of which “side” you take, however, the society as a whole will still lose.

The video only affected two people, Nick Sandmann and Nathan Phillip, yet the entire country—quite literally at the direction of mainstream media—allowed it to affect them. The media is getting so good a cutting the country in half on random issues that there is actually a term for it. Videos and instances like this are called a “scissor.”

As Ross Douthat recently pointed out, in a short story published last October, “Sort by Controversial,” Scott Alexander imagines a Silicon Valley company that accidentally comes up with an algorithm to generate what it calls a “Scissor.” The scissor is a statement, an idea or a scenario that’s somehow perfectly calibrated to tear people apart — not just by generating disagreement, but by generating total incredulity that somebody could possibly disagree with your interpretation of the controversy, followed by escalating fury and paranoia and polarization, until the debate seems like a completely existential, win-or-perish fight.

This win or perish fight has become the go to reaction for nearly every news story. Instead of critical thought on news articles, people simply build their defenses and prepare for war—actual truth be damned.

“OMG, the MAGA hat is literally a swastika! It represents everything wrong with society!” Or, “those stupid libtards are trying to ruin this country by preventing Trump from building that wall!” Meanwhile, both sides are missing the point. Their ridiculous infighting is keeping them distracted from actual issues that affect their lives. More

NewsGuard Launches War on Alternative Media

1 Comment

Editors Note:  This is an extremely important article by Anti Media about censorship and the propagandizing of the news you are fed on MSM.  Please take the time to read and understand just how bad this is going to be for the public. 

(MPN) — Soon after the social media “purge” of independent media sites and pages this past October, a top neoconservative insider — Jamie Fly — was caught stating that the mass deletion of anti-establishment and anti-war pages on Facebook and Twitter was “just the beginning” of a concerted effort by the U.S. government and powerful corporations to silence online dissent within the United States and beyond.

While a few, relatively uneventful months in the online news sphere have come and gone since Fly made this ominous warning, it appears that the neoconservatives and other standard bearers of the military-industrial complex and the U.S. oligarchy are now poised to let loose their latest digital offensive against independent media outlets that seek to expose wrongdoing in both the private and public sectors.

As MintPress News Editor-in-Chief Mnar Muhawesh recently wroteMintPress was informed that it was under review by an organization called Newsguard Technologies, which described itself to MintPress as simply a “news rating agency” and asked Muhawesh to comment on a series of allegations, several of which were blatantly untrue. However, further examination of this organization reveals that it is funded by and deeply connected to the U.S. government, neo-conservatives, and powerful monied interests, all of whom have been working overtime since the 2016 election to silence dissent to American forever-wars and corporate-led oligarchy.

More troubling still, Newsguard — by virtue of its deep connections to government and Silicon Valley — is lobbying to have its rankings of news sites installed by default on computers in U.S. public libraries, schools, and universities as well as on all smartphones and computers sold in the United States.

In other words, as Newsguard’s project advances, it will soon become almost impossible to avoid this neocon-approved news site’s ranking systems on any technological device sold in the United States. Worse still, if its efforts to quash dissenting voices in the U.S. are successful, Newsguard promises that its next move will be to take its system global.

Red light, green light . .

Five of the Most Important Stories the Establishment Media Ignored in 2018

2 Comments

As the mainstream media pushed partisan divide to keep citizens fighting among each other, several major stories were deliberately swept under the rug.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As the clock gets ready to hit midnight, rest assured that the information controllers within the mainstream media and the establishment are preparing an entire year’s worth of propaganda and misinformation to keep you in the dark about issues that really matter in 2019.

As divisive partisan rubbish filled the airways to keep Americans divided in 2018, many very important stories were buried under a sea of misinformation — much of which was likely deliberate.

The Free Thought Project has compiled a list of five of the biggest stories the mainstream media ignored or swept under the rug in 2018.

1. The Real Crimes of George H.W. Bush

Kicking off the list at number one is an issue that we watched play out all December long as flags across the country sat at half mass to honor war criminal and mass murder George H.W. Bush. Although countless hours of coverage were devoted to honoring Bush, not a single mainstream media outlet reported on his crimes during his presidency. More

FAKE NEWS is streaming live to you in your home from people who want to control what you know and how you know it. 

Dragonfly: Google’s Censoring Program

Leave a comment

Author: Chuck Frank

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

     I think that it is generally common knowledge in America that great censorship exists in China and it is becoming ever so prominent since the new leader of China, the X-Man, was voted in for a lifetime term by the National “People’s Congress” who rubber stamped the tyrant and dictator, Xi Jinping.  When it is all said and done, will he receive the “Lifetime Achievement Award” for “Censorship?”

Most recently it is has been noted how Google has been part of an under the radar Chinese censorship machine meant to promote the “Ministry of Truth” and further the bondage’s of a people that is already experiencing a life without true freedom and expression.  Yet, what is so concerning is this;  Even though Facebook, Google, Twitter and Instagram are all banned in China, Google still has three offices in the country.

The online news site, the Intercept stated that Google has been secretly working on a project code-named Dragonfly that will block terms such as human rights and religion, a move sure to anger activists.  While the platform still requires Chinese government approval, Google workers are up in arms over the fact that, unknowingly, they have been working on the Dragonfly project which essentially censors free speech and of the press in the great late communist state of China, ruled by none other than the X-Man.


Thus, Google is not only being viewed as an instrument of vast censorship in America, the company, of all things, is placing even more bondage’s upon a people that have known nothing but bondage’s for centuries and now when the freedom of the internet is there to open the eyes of 1.4 billion people, Google is there to shut the door?

What kind of company would do this?

This is one of the most outrageous acts I have ever seen in my entire life.  I just wonder now what does the Statue of Liberty mean anymore to companies such as Google and Facebook and others who are part of the Silicon Valley cartel?  Will they replace Miss Liberty with a statue of Karl Marx or the X-Man?

Psychoanalysing NATO: Gaslighting

3 Comments

Editor note:  This is quite possibly one of the most relevant opinion pieces that I have read in recent years.  Please take the time to review it and pay attention to the ways you are propagandized and gaslighted. 

 

 

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/07/17/psychoanalysing-nato-gaslighting.html

NOTE: Because “NATO” these days is little more than a box of spare parts out of which Washington assembles “coalitions of the willing”, it’s easier for me to write “NATO” than “Washington plus/minus these or those minions”.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid has called on Russia to explain “exactly what has gone on” after two people were exposed to the Novichok nerve agent in Wiltshire. (BBC)

The Russian state could put this wrong right. They could tell us what happened. What they did. And fill in some of the significant gaps that we are trying to pursue. We have said they can come and tell us what happened. I’m waiting for the phone call from the Russian state. The offer is there. They are the ones who could fill in all the clues to keep people safe. (UK security minister Ben Wallace)

Leaving aside their egregious flouting of the elemental principle of English justice, note that they’re uttering this logical idiocy: Russia must have done it because it hasn’t proved it didn’t. Note also, in Javid’s speech, the amusing suggestion that Russia keeps changing its story; but to fit into the official British story “novichok” must be an instantly lethal slow acting poison which dissipates quickly but lasts for months.

This is an attempt to manipulate our perception of reality. In a previous essay I discussed NATO’s projection of its own actions onto Russia. In this piece I want to discuss another psychological manipulation – gaslighting.

The expression comes from the movie Gaslight in which the villain manipulates her reality to convince his wife that she is insane. Doubt the official Skripal story and it is you – you “Russian troll” – who is imagining things. Only Russian trolls would question Litvinenko’s deathbed accusation written in perfect English handed to us by a Berezovskiy flunky; or the shootdown of MH17; or the invasion of Ukraine; or the cyber attack on Estonia. Only a Russian troll would observe that the fabulously expensive NATO intelligence agencies apparently get their information from Bellingcat. Argumentum ad trollem is everywhere: count the troll accusations here or admire the clever anticipatory use of the technique there.

This is classic gaslighting – I’m telling the truth, you’re the crazy one.

We may illustrate the eleven signs of “gaslighting” given in Psychiatry Today by Stephanie A. Sarkis with recent events.

They tell blatant lies.
