The Ultimate “RED” Herring: The Russians Are Back!

The evil, Red communists apparently are back to subvert the sacred institutions of America.  Mainstream media’s contrived naïveté to the idea of deep-cover sex spies from Russia is nothing but a planned diversion for what is the long-standing practice of many nations blending into the halls of corporate recruitment in order to join the Globalist network.
Whether or not the media is trying to peddle a new Cold War is largely irrelevant; we should consider the source.  The media itself is groomed in the very same institutions, and has long been on assignment to defend the establishment corporate control system via well-documented CIA operations of propaganda management.  Former director of the CIA, William Colby, said it himself in 2004:  “The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of significance in the major media.”  That being the case, the insinuations of a new Red Scare from a blatant disinformation channel should swiftly be called into question.

More noteworthy is that these spies were not caught corrupting standing officials of American government, but rather were outed in their attempt to get deep into the very system which promotes Globalism.  They “had jobs that put them in contact with opinion makers, corporate executives or aspiring technology industry workers,” according to the Bloomberg report, indicating that this was a long-term endeavor.  The initial target, Harvard, is one of the prime recruitment sources for The New World Order.  Within the overall recruitment structure, Harvard can be viewed as the global business division rounding out the controlled education network consisting primarily of Princeton (intelligence consulting division), Yale (political grooming division), and Stanford (science and medical division).  These institutions form the matrix of the Globalist agenda to control all aspects of world management.

The mainstream media wants to keep us fixated on the fact that these spies are from Russia in order to dredge up an old enemy and the remembrance of mutual assured destruction Cold War rhetoric.   The more disturbing, more covert, modern reality is that Russia is merely continuing proven espionage tactics to stay on the gravy train of access to recruiters, and to strengthen their position in planning for their own economic New World Order.  Just as Israel’s spy network used fake art students to infiltrate, and China sought access to U.S. weapons technology by using visiting students and scientists, Russia has always been a premier player in the spy game of jockeying for global intelligence supremacy.

We would do well to ignore this red herring of a new Red Scare, and instead keep in mind that the borderless banksters who represent the tyranny of Globalism, are free from religious or political dogma.  It is all business, all the time.  The latest Russian spy diversion is nothing more than that:  business as usual.

Ron Paul: “The CIA Runs Everything”

The CIA was created at the behest of the bankers on Wall Street. OSS spook and Wall Street lawyer Frank Wisner was recruited by Dean Acheson to work under Charles Saltzman, at the State Department’s Office of Occupied Territories in 1947. The CIA’s first director, Allen Dulles, was a Wall Street lawyer.

The CIA is Wall Street’s finely honed tool for the neoliberal agenda of the banksters. “A considerable proportion of the developed world’s prosperity rests on paying the lowest possible prices for the poor countries’ primary products and on exporting high-cost capital and finished goods to those countries. Continuation of this kind of prosperity requires continuation of the relative gap between developed and underdeveloped countries – it means keeping poor people poor,” former CIA agent Philip Agee wrote. “Increasingly, the impoverished masses are understanding that the prosperity of the developed countries and of the privileged minorities in their own countries is founded on their poverty.”

“Throughout its entire history, the CIA has set up an elaborate shell game of ‘proprietaries’ (front companies), money-laundering operations and off-the-books projects so complex that no outsider — and few insiders — could ever keep track of them. BCCI was neither the first nor the last of these,” writes Mark Zepezauer.

Excerpt from the Campaign for Liberty Regional Conference in Atlanta, GA.

As the crowd begins to cheer, Ron Paul states, “We need to take out the CIA”.

“They are a government unto themselves. Their in businesses, their in drug businesses… and… they take out dictators. We need to take out the CIA.”

Also, the CIA have infiltrated the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign:

From Raw Story:

US House Rep. Ron Paul says the CIA has has in effect carried out a “coup” against the US government, and the intelligence agency needs to be “taken out.”

Speaking to an audience of like-minded libertarians at a Campaign for Liberty regional conference in Atlanta this past weekend, the Texas Republican said:

There’s been a coup, have you heard? It’s the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything, they run the military. They’re the ones who are over there lobbing missiles and bombs on countries. … And of course the CIA is every bit as secretive as the Federal Reserve. … And yet think of the harm they have done since they were established [after] World War II. They are a government unto themselves. They’re in businesses, in drug businesses, they take out dictators … We need to take out the CIA.

Paul’s comments, made last weekend, were met with a loud round of applause, but they didn’t gather attention until bloggers noticed a clip of the event at YouTube.

Paul appeared to be referring to news reports that the CIA is deeply involved in air strikes against Al Qaeda targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan. A suicide bombing late last year against Forward Operating Base Chapman in Afghanistan took the lives of seven of CIA operatives, including two contracted from Blackwater. The event highlighted the CIA’s deep involvement in the war effort.

Paul’s reference to the CIA being “in the drug business” refers to long-running allegations that the CIA has funded some of its covert operations with proceeds from drug-running. That claim was most famously made in a 1996 investigative report from the San Jose Mercury-News, which alleged that cocaine from the Contra-Sandinista civil war in Nicaragua was making its way to the streets of L.A. via the CIA.

Molding Public Opinion

6 Oct

Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them — and then, the opportunity to choose — C. Wright Mills

Who gave us our values prior to the multimedia 24-hour per day sensory circus that is the state of current television programming?  It seemed to fall upon the shoulders of those who’s burden it really was: our parents, teachers, and religious leaders.  This group of three met us as we emerged from the womb, and they served as our educators and shepherds throughout our formative years.  Their power was such that they remained role models well into adulthood.  There could be no mistaking the influence the aforementioned had on our worldview as we actually knew these individuals.  If we were lucky, we had well-intentioned educators who encouraged our questions, sparked lively debate, and gave us the tools and opinions to help us form our own opinions.  But where are we now? We have been given surrogate guidance counselors on every facet of our lives, and they beam their “opinions” to us nearly every second of every waking day.  They are the media and they have supplanted our traditional means of communicating with one another for information and guidance.  Instead, they dictate, chastise, set trends, and increasingly offer dissent only within pre-proscribed boundaries.

OUR MEDIA SURROGATES

We don’t even personally know the people whose opinions we now accept to direct our lives.  The family unit has been virtually cast aside as our families have less and less time to spend with one another.  But our surrogate media is there for us 24 hours per day providing a wealth of entertainment options.  And so much choice!  Yet, one of the most insidious aspects to what is being offered by our media sources is the illusion of growing choice.  Despite an increasing number of television channels and 1,600 newspapers in the U.S., we are down to 6 companies that own media outlets, from 50 as recently as 1985.  This consolidation allows all news and entertainment ultimately to arrive as though spoken by one unified voice.  There is no real dissent left, with many topics (like 9-11, for instance) considered so toxic that anyone, whether “news” anchor, late-night entertainment, or some of our well-regarded dissenters, is committing career suicide for seriously considering such a very serious issue.

At its worst, the media has been used covertly by intelligence agencies.  They admit this.  Operation Mockingbird was created by Frank Wisner in 1948 to introduce propaganda to American media.  Wisner recruited Philip Graham from The Washington Post, and from there Graham took over recruiting within the industry to nearly every major news source.  There is also much evidence to suggest that the messaging was sent out to Hollywood as well.  This is the main concern about the increasing concentration of power:  it would be nearly impossible to control the news and messaging people receive if there are thousands upon thousands of individuals to control.  But with a mere handful in control of newspapers, magazines, movie studios,  and radio, the implementation is a walk in the park.

Operation Mockingbird was theoretically shut down by George Bush senior in 1976, but if we are supposed to believe that a former head of the CIA would shut down a program intended to strengthen it, then we all should be buying bridges in Brooklyn.   Then there was the suspicious death of researcher Steve Kangas in 1999 outside an office of the owner of The Pittsburgh Tribune, Richard Mellon Scaife.  Since then, discussion of Mockingbird-type programs has been predictably quiet.  However, it would be profoundly naive to conclude that since media has only become more slick, more polished, and more entertainment-driven in its news features that there isn’t still some level of covert control happening.  But, no matter, corporate money guarantees that media policy does not have to be spoken aloud; it is well understood what topics should be discussed, and in what way they should be spoken.  If one tunes their attention to major media, it seems obvious that when the same exact talking points occur across seemingly disparate sources (in effect behaving like a Mockingbird), it throws up a red flag.

Those in control know that information is knowledge, and knowledge is power.  Proper and diverse information is essential for people to make well-considered decisions — like electing a president, for instance, or calling a president to task for failed policy.  And if there is going to be dissent, our media controllers know that it can be allowed — but only with the smaller issues.  War is not one of those issues.  In a recent FOX News broadcast, I literally could not tell Democrat and Republican apart in the panel discussion about the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan.  Just the opposite:  not only did they agree, they positively fawned over one another’s statements as if they themselves should have made the exact same statement earlier.  Of course, these four panelists were hand-selected by the program to offer their slanted view.  And this became “fair and balanced” coverage for that segment.  Hooray!  Bi-partisanship finally!  Sickening.

As a result, public opinion is not only being molded, it is molding.  Without the fresh air of new ideas, dissent, and informed questions, the body politic is rotting like a mushroom in the cellar.

And hand-in-hand with the media presentation of acceptable ideas is the reinforcement provided by advertising, which will be the subject of the next article.  Because it is through advertising where the media has a chance to remind us of how inadequate we really are.  In the news we are given the problems, cable news is there to fan the flames of reaction, but it is the role of the advertising department to sell us the proper solutions for our growing discontent.
