Masters of Deceit: The Government’s Propaganda of Fear, Mind Control & Brain Warfare
by John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead | The Rutherford Institute
September 21st 2022,
Our government treats its citizens like faceless statistics and economic units to be bought, sold, bartered, traded, and tracked.
“It is the function of mass agitation to exploit all the grievances, hopes, aspirations, prejudices, fears, and ideals of all the special groups that make up our society, social, religious, economic, racial, political. Stir them up. Set one against the other. Divide and conquer. That’s the way to soften up a democracy.”― J. Edgar Hoover, Masters of Deceit
The U.S. government has become a master of deceit.
It’s all documented, too.
This is a government that lies, cheats, steals, spies, kills, maims, enslaves, breaks the laws, overreaches its authority, and abuses its power at almost every turn; treats its citizens like faceless statistics and economic units to be bought, sold, bartered, traded, and tracked; and wages wars for profit, jails its own people for profit, and has no qualms about spreading its reign of terror abroad.
Worse, this is a government that has become almost indistinguishable from the evil it claims to be fighting, whether that evil takes the form of terrorism, torture, drug trafficking, sex trafficking, murder, violence, theft, pornography, scientific experimentations or some other diabolical means of inflicting pain, suffering and servitude on humanity.
With every passing day, it becomes painfully clear that this is not a government that can be trusted with your life, your loved ones, your livelihood or your freedoms.
Just recently, for example, the Pentagon was compelled to order a sweeping review of clandestine U.S. psychological warfare operations (psy ops) conducted through social media platforms. The investigation comes in response to reports suggesting that the U.S. military has been creating bogus personas with AI-generated profile pictures and fictitious media sites on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in order to manipulate social media users.
Psychological warfare, as the U.S. Army’s 4th Psychological Operations Group explained in a recruiting video released earlier this year, enables the government to pull the strings, turn everything they touch into a weapon, be everywhere, deceive, persuade, change, influence, and inspire.
Of the many weapons in the government’s vast arsenal, psychological warfare (or psy ops) can take many forms: mind control experiments, behavioral nudging, propaganda.
In the 1950s, MK-ULTRA, the mind control program developed under CIA director Allen Dulles as part of his brain warfare Cold War campaigns, subjected hundreds of unsuspecting American civilians and military personnel to doses of LSD, some having the hallucinogenic drug slipped into their drinks at the beach, in city bars, at restaurants. For Operation Midnight Climax, the CIA hired prostitutes to lure men into a bugged room, where they would be dosed with LSD and observed having sex
As Brianna Nofil explains, “MK-Ultra’s ‘mind control’ experiments generally centered around behavior modification via electro-shock therapy, hypnosis, polygraphs, radiation, and a variety of drugs, toxins, and chemicals.”
The CIA spent nearly $20 million on its MKULTRA program, reportedly as a means of programming people to carry out assassinations and, to a lesser degree, inducing anxieties and erasing memories, before it was supposedly shut down.
As one study reported, detainees held in CIA safe-houses abroad “were literally interrogated to death in experimental methods combining drugs, hypnosis and torture, to attempt to master brainwashing techniques and memory erasing.”
Similarly, the top-secret Montauk Project, the inspiration for the hit Netflix series Stranger Things, allegedly was working to develop mind-control techniques that would then be tested out on locals in a nearby village, triggering crime waves or causing teenagers to congregate.
As journalist Lorraine Boissoneault concludes, “Despite MK-ULTRA violating ethical norms for human experiments, the legacy of brainwashing experiments continued to live on in U.S. policy. The same methods that had once been used to train American soldiers ended up being used to extract information from terrorists in Abu Ghraib, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay.”
Fast forward to the present day, and it’s clear that the government—aided and abetted by technological advances and scientific experimentation—has updated its psy ops warfare for a new era. For instance, the government has been empowered to use its ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and technologies to influence behaviors en masse and control the populace.
It’s a short hop, skip and a jump from a behavioral program that tries to influence how people respond to paperwork to a government program that tries to shape the public’s views about other, more consequential matters. Thus, increasingly, governments around the world—including in the United States—are relying on “nudge units” to steer citizens in the direction the powers-that-be want them to go, while preserving the appearance of free will.
Back in 2014, for example, a Fusion Center in Washington State (a Dept. of Homeland Security-linked data collection clearinghouse that shares information between state, local and federal agencies) inadvertently released records on remote mind control tactics (the use of “psycho-electronic” weapons to control people from a distance or subject them to varying degrees of pain).
Indeed, the COVID-19 pandemic could easily be considered psychological warfare disguised as a pandemic threat. As science writer David Robson explains: “Fears of contagion lead us to become more conformist and tribalistic… Daily reminders of disease may even sway our political affiliations… Various experiments have shown that we become more conformist and respectful of convention when we feel the threat of a disease… the evocative images of a pandemic led [participants in an experiment] to value conformity and obedience over eccentricity or rebellion.”
This is how you persuade a populace to voluntarily march in lockstep with a police state and police themselves (and each other): by ratcheting up the fear-factor, meted out one carefully calibrated crisis at a time, and teaching them to distrust any who diverge from the norm.
This is not a new experiment in mind control.
Add the government’s inclination to monitor online activity and police so-called “disinformation,” and you have the makings of a restructuring of reality straight out of Orwell’s 1984, where the Ministry of Truth polices speech and ensures that facts conform to whatever version of reality the government propagandists embrace.
This “policing of the mind” is exactly the danger author Jim Keith warned about when he predicted that “information and communication sources are gradually being linked together into a single computerized network, providing an opportunity for unheralded control of what will be broadcast, what will be said, and ultimately what will be thought.”
We’ve already seen this play out on the state and federal level with hate crime legislation that cracks down on so-called “hateful” thoughts and expression, encourages self-censoring and reduces free debate on various subject matter.
The end goal of these mind-control campaigns—packaged in the guise of the greater good—is to see how far the American people will allow the government to go in re-shaping the country in the image of a totalitarian police state.
The government’s fear-mongering is yet another key element in its mind-control programming.
It’s a simple enough formula. National crises, global pandemics, reported terrorist attacks, and sporadic shootings leave us in a constant state of fear. The emotional panic that accompanies fear actually shuts down the prefrontal cortex or the rational thinking part of our brains. In other words, when we are consumed by fear, we stop thinking.
A populace that stops thinking for themselves is a populace that is easily led, easily manipulated and easily controlled whether through propaganda, brainwashing, mind control, or just plain fear-mongering.
Fear not only increases the power of government, but it also divides the people into factions, persuades them to see each other as the enemy and keeps them screaming at each other so that they drown out all other sounds. In this way, they will never reach consensus about anything and will be too distracted to notice the police state closing in on them until the final crushing curtain falls.
This Machiavellian scheme has so ensnared the nation that few Americans even realize they are being brainwashed—manipulated—into adopting an “us” against “them” mindset. All the while, those in power—bought and paid for by lobbyists and corporations—move their costly agendas forward.
This unseen mechanism of society that manipulates us through fear into compliance is what American theorist Edward L. Bernays referred to as “an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”
It was almost 100 years ago when Bernays wrote his seminal work Propaganda:
“We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of… In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, to this invisible government of rulers who operate behind the scenes—the architects of the Deep State—we are mere puppets on a string, to be brainwashed, manipulated and controlled.
For years now, the powers-that-be—those politicians and bureaucrats who think like tyrants and act like petty dictators regardless of what party they belong to—have attempted to brainwash us into believing that we have no rights: to think for ourselves, make decisions about our health, protect our homes and families and businesses, act in our best interests, demand accountability and transparency from government, or generally operate as if we are in control of our own lives.
Well, the government is wrong.
We have every right, and you know why? Because, as the Declaration of Independence states, we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights—to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness—that no government can take away from us.
It’s time we started reminding the government that “we the people” are the ones in charge.
Pentagon’s information warfare review should cover domestic side (Sept. 21, 2022)
The U.S. Department of Defense has ordered “a sweeping audit of how it conducts clandestine information warfare,” the Washington Post reports. The apparent reason for the review is an August disclosure, by Graphika and the Stanford Internet Observatory, that Twitter and Facebook, of social media accounts opened under fake identities and used to feed disinformation to “audiences overseas.”
That’s all well and good, but while they’re at it I wish the Pentagon would also review – and cease – its information warfare campaigns against the American public.
Among supposed American constitutional values are separation of the military from politics, and its subservience to civilian government.
While those values have always proven more noticeable in the breach than in the observance in wartime, the post-World War II national security state has turned that breach into a well-funded, 24/7/365, campaign of political influence.
Senior military officials routinely attempt to affect policy (and politicians, and voter sentiment) with public statements designating the next Enemy of the Week and begging for more money and more operational authority to fight the wars it chooses rather than the wars Congress declares (the last time Congress was willing to take that kind of responsibility was in 1942, when it added Bulgaria, Hungary, and Romania to its list of WWII opponents).
The Department of Defense maintains an “Entertainment Media Office” to support filmmakers with military resources. Needless to say, only productions which glorify the U.S. armed forces need apply. The most recent prominent example (involving no fewer than two U.S. Navy aircraft carriers, multiple aircraft and military pilots, etc.) is mega-hit “Top Gun: Maverick.”
In 2015, the public learned that the National Football League’s apparently heartfelt love of military pageantry – color guards, tributes to veterans, even aircraft flyovers and parachute jumps – was actually just a bought and paid for (with millions of taxpayer dollars) DOD marketing scheme.
And yes, they’re constantly coming for our children. I was recruited into the U.S. Marine Corps in high school myself in the 1980s, but even I was surprised at the sheer volume of mail my own kids received from armed forces recruiters from about the time they hit the age of 16 a few years ago. They’re all over the public schools, not just to fill their recruitment quotas but to make positive impressions on future voters.
The up side for them is obvious: Spending millions of taxpayer dollars on psy-ops directed at Americans gets them hundreds of billions to spend on other things.
The down side for us is equally obvious: Instead of armed forces doing as the civilian government directs, we have armed forces using taxpayer money to influence how the civilian government directs them. That’s a non-trivial factor behind three decades of constant war.
by the Vigilant Citizen
The next defense authorization bill to be proposed by the American congress contains a not-so-publicized amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American citizens. The bill would indeed nullify an existing law that (supposedly) protects U.S. audiences from misinformation campaigns conducted by its own government. In other words, Americans could now be subjected to the hardcore, massively manipulative and disinformation-filled propaganda that is usually reserved for foreign countries such as Iraq. Yes, the American public is the new “enemy” to brainwash and the internet will be an important battlefield.
Readers of this site might ask: “Since when Americans were NOT subjected to propaganda?”. That is a true assessment. Most of the articles on this site effectively describe how mass media products are filled with propaganda and disinformation that is communicated to the American public. The new bill would however legalize the process, making it official and out in the open. While propaganda in the United States was always somewhat covert and disguised as something else, the new bill apparently seeks to form an actual Orwellian Ministry of Truth, where propaganda is just part of daily business. If you believe that mass media is full of BS now…there’s apparently a lot more of it coming our way soon.
Here’s an article on the “propaganda” bill.
Congressmen Seek To Lift Propaganda Ban
Propaganda that was supposed to target foreigners could now be aimed at Americans, reversing a longstanding policy. “Disconcerting and dangerous,” says Shank.
An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned.
The amendment would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the independent Broadcasting Board of Governors, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee’s official website.
The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987—that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns.
The bi-partisan amendment is sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry from Texas and Rep. Adam Smith from Washington State.
In a little noticed press release earlier in the week — buried beneath the other high-profile issues in the $642 billion defense bill, including indefinite detention and a prohibition on gay marriage at military installations — Thornberry warned that in the Internet age, the current law “ties the hands of America’s diplomatic officials, military, and others by inhibiting our ability to effectively communicate in a credible way.”
The bill’s supporters say the informational material used overseas to influence foreign audiences is too good to not use at home, and that new techniques are needed to help fight Al-Qaeda, a borderless enemy whose own propaganda reaches Americans online.
Critics of the bill say there are ways to keep America safe without turning the massive information operations apparatus within the federal government against American citizens.
“Clearly there are ways to modernize for the information age without wiping out the distinction between domestic and foreign audiences,” says Michael Shank, Vice President at the Institute for Economics and Peace in Washington D.C. “That Reps Adam Smith and Mac Thornberry want to roll back protections put in place by previously-serving Senators – who, in their wisdom, ensured limits to taxpayer–funded propaganda promulgated by the US government – is disconcerting and dangerous.”
“I just don’t want to see something this significant – whatever the pros and cons – go through without anyone noticing,”
“ says one source on the Hill, who is disturbed by the law. According to this source, the law would allow “U.S. propaganda intended to influence foreign audiences to be used on the domestic population.”
The new law would give sweeping powers to the government to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. “It removes the protection for Americans,” says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. “It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.”
According to this official, “senior public affairs” officers within the Department of Defense want to “get rid” of Smith-Mundt and other restrictions because it prevents information activities designed to prop up unpopular policies—like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Critics of the bill point out that there was rigorous debate when Smith Mundt passed, and the fact that this is so “under the radar,” as the Pentagon official puts it, is troubling.
The Pentagon spends some $4 billion a year to sway public opinion already, and it was recently revealed by USA Today the DoD spent $202 million on information operations in Iraq and Afghanistan last year.
In an apparent retaliation to the USA Today investigation, the two reporters working on the story appear to have been targeted by Pentagon contractors, who created fake Facebook pages and Twitter accounts in an attempt to discredit them.
(In fact, a second amendment to the authorization bill — in reaction to the USA Today report — seeks cuts to the Pentagon’s propaganda budget overseas, while this amendment will make it easier for the propaganda to spread at home.)
The evaporation of Smith-Mundt and other provisions to safeguard U.S. citizens against government propaganda campaigns is part of a larger trend within the diplomatic and military establishment.
In December, the Pentagon used software to monitor the Twitter debate over Bradley Manning’s pre-trial hearing; another program being developed by the Pentagon would design software to create “sock puppets” on social media outlets; and, last year, General William Caldwell, deployed an information operations team under his command that had been trained in psychological operations to influence visiting American politicians to Kabul.
A U.S. Army whistleblower, Lieutenant Col. Daniel Davis, noted recently in his scathing 84-page unclassified report on Afghanistan that there remains a strong desire within the defense establishment “to enable Public Affairs officers to influence American public opinion when they deem it necessary to “protect a key friendly center of gravity, to wit US national will,” he wrote, quoting a well-regarded general.
The defense bill passed the House Friday afternoon.
CORRECTION: The amendment under consideration would not apply to the Department of Defense, though the it is attached to a defense authorization bill.

4) American Intelligence Media, Jan. 18, 2016
This article originally appeared on State of the Nation as False Flags are Legal Propaganda by the Department of Defense on January 18, 2016.
Why would the government support false flag events?
This question would go through our minds every time we would see a new false flag event plastered all over the media. Like many of you, we would think, “It has to be real, otherwise the government and participants would be engaging in treason.” But the narrative and the evidence never seem to match up. How odd that at Sandy Hook and at San Bernardino there were so many responders from federal agencies and that other drills were already happening on the same day just a mile away. Coincidence seemed unlikely for one event. Totally unlikely for two.
It even seemed that the “official story” that was “fed” to the news agencies was filled with holes on purpose. When 450 responders showed up in San Bernardino, including FEMA, ATF, Homeland Security, FBI, DoD, and all local agencies, within 14 minutes and had their lawn chairs and coolers set up while most of them walked around aimlessly with no worries in the world, we couldn’t take it anymore. We had always known that “false flags” usually precede severe military action and we couldn’t really imagine military action within US domestic borders since the military is not empowered to act against its own citizens.
Therefore, we decided to WAKE UP and study the false flag phenomena. Don’t presume to think this is just another conspiracy theory article. What you will read will chill you to the bone. We know this is a long article, but while you were sleeping much has been done to destroy your country. You need to see the immense work that is being done behind your back to destroy your beloved country. And, most important, when you get to the end of the article, we have a CITIZEN CALL TO ACTION.
We beseech you, our fellow Americans, to read this article and pass it along to others. Unplug your electronic tethers and read this very important article. If not for you, then the children and loved ones in your life who will live like slaves in this hellish New World Order that is already here. Our patriotic duty was to do the research; yours is to read and distribute to other patriots.
Like many of you, we believe that 9-11 was a false flag event. We don’t know exactly who, what, why and how, but we know that when overwhelming circumstantial evidence points in the opposite direction of the official story, something is wrong. So when the Sandy Hook and San Bernardino events unfolded, we became very uneasy as these events seemed to be new type of false flag. In both events, the president was demanding that Americans give up their guns and constitutional rights even before the fake pools of blood on steps of the Sandy Hook school dried.
Actually, the pools of blood on the sidewalk at Sandy Hook were the first indicator of fraud: two uncoagulated pools of liquid blood without a trail of blood, without any victims ever coming out of the building to “make” the pools, and authorities ignoring them and not even treating them as part of a crime scene. Every picture we saw or video we listened to was completely fake and looked more like a drill. Nothing added up. In San Bernardino there were ten different “black SUV” pictures released that are completely contradictory. An alarm kept going off in our heads saying, “Why are they purposely releasing contrary evidence as though they didn’t care that the evidence made them complicit with a crime, or even treason?”
We started studying the evidence. We were beyond the basic evidence—that crisis actors were used to stage both events and multiple government agencies showed up within minutes. But one thing that totally took us by surprise is that San Bernardino was the site of the largest Jade Helm 2015 military maneuvers. We asked ourselves, “Why would so many people, including so many U.S. government agencies, be involved in deceiving Americans?” It took courage to look beyond the first veil of illusion.
If you have followed Sandy Hook and San Bernardino you realize that no one (except the patsies) are killed. No one dies; therefore, no crime has been committed. This knowledge gave us some comfort, but raised many questions concerning false flag events in America.
What is the goal of the recent (since 2012) false flag events?
Who gains from the appearance of insidious criminal events?
What mechanisms are used to silence so many participants, i.e. paid crisis actors, government agencies?
How do these agencies “get away with” using creating lies, distortions, and false flags? Wouldn’t that be called propaganda?
After pondering these questions relentlessly, we lifted another veil of illusion. We asked, “What if these activities to manipulate public opinion were legal? Could there be a law that protects the president and US agencies (local, state, and federal) from conducting false flag event? So we changed our focus and began to research false flags as being legal propaganda. We found the answers in clear sight. We were beyond disbelief when we discovered that the US Congress has passed laws, post 9-11, that makes state-sponsored propaganda legal. Take a moment and think about that before reading on.
Our research lead us to discover the tenets of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 which makes it legal to propagate and broadcast propaganda within America. We are all being treated like enemy combatants whose “perception” must be managed to come in line with presidential “national security” policies. The Department of Defense may now broadcast propaganda with the approval and authority of the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) both internationally and domestically. Just Google it folks. There is actually an agency with this name.
Any presidential policy may be accompanied by broadcasts that use subliminal programming as part of perception management. These mechanisms that squelch descent have been used since the Reagan administration to shape public opinion to support administrative policies. Wars require domestic support and these “black ops” programs started to use the “psy-ops” tools of the military. DARPA, the research and development arm of the military, has created many tools to control the enemy through media that shapes public perception, which we will elucidate later in this article. It is called perception management and has been used legally in advertising since the late seventies and also in electronic warfare throughout the world to “brain-wash” our enemies and shape their perception and opinion of America.
The only question left was the issue of what the goal of the president (or the real powers behind him—the Council on Foreign Relations) might be, besides the obvious one of having few people who disagree with his policies. We then studied the United Nations Small Arms Treaty which Obama signed in 2011, but couldn’t get Congress to ratify. In this treaty we found the goal Obama is driving towards — disarm America, with the help of the United Nations. But two things have to happen: 1) we have to give up our guns or have them taken from us and 2) the UN has to have a military presence in our country. Keep in mind that the United Nations cannot have a military presence in our country, unless invited.
Have you already started connecting the dots? Remember seeing all of the images of all that UN military equipment that was distributed throughout America during Jade Helm 2015? It seemed that besides the San Bernardino exercises, moving UN heavy military equipment throughout America was the only thing that we noticed happening during Jade Helm 2015. Another veil lifted. Obama’s job was to go for a gun grab, either by Congressional action or UN treaty. But patriots started waking up and our elected officials in Congress could not ratify the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. So Obama and his political minions began to manufacture false flags, hoping that our horror of Sandy Hook and San Bernardino would cause us to lay down our rights and guns.
Keep in mind, that false flag incidents and state-sponsored propaganda could not be considered treasonous acts against Americans as Congress (through the NDAA) had made treason–legal.
Congress Does Not Ratify Gun-Taking Treaty
Congress would not, and has not, ratified the UN Small Arms Treaty, nor would they vote on Second Amendment restrictions. So false flags were used to create conscious and “unconscious” support of a national gun grab. Sandy Hook was the most heinous “example” of what “guns do.” Incredible anti-gun sentiment was created by Sandy Hook and people still reel from it with anger and hatred for “people on drugs” and “gun lovers.” San Bernardino happened right before the congressional vote on gun control. And even with images of San Bernardino a day before the congressional vote on gun control, Obama lost his attempt for gun restrictions.
Now do you see why he has taken things into his own hands and signed into effect 23 Executive Orders that move his gun control policies forward in contradistinction to the fact that Congress rejected such ideas? The motive became quite clear once you read the UN Treaty – to dismantle the Second Amendment and disarm America. Since Obama couldn’t use the United Nations or Congress to get his way, he just wrote his own laws and pretends like Executive Orders outrank congressional law. Obama is behind the UN timeline of disarmament, since the other nations who signed the treaty have already begun to disarm its citizens.
Controlling the Human Domain
Once we understood the goal and the legalization of propaganda, with its insidious DARPA electronic war devices, the rest fell into place as one Internet search after the next revealed a the truth before our eyes. This is shocking and almost inconceivable. But it is law (NDAA) and Congress did not stop this law from being passed.
Another questions is why our elected official not call out the president in using subliminal programming, psy-ops perception management and war-like marketing strategies to shape public opinion? Simple. They use it themselves in their own campaigns. Subliminal programming is openly used in the broadcasting industry – that’s why people believe untruths from the news and watch mindless TV while drinking their cola beverage (It’s the Real Thing) and imagining that the official story on main stream media is the only story.
As Jade Helm 2015 taught us, the military is interested in Controlling the Human Domain, the very motto of their operation emblazoned on their logo. Fellow patriots, we are in a war which is coming from all sides towards the middle. We cannot trust authorities and politicians to have our best interest at heart. We need to wake up and observe more carefully and ask more questions even when a nagging voice in the back of our minds says, “It is the official story, I should not question it,” or “I should trust my elected officials to come forward and blow a whistle if such heinous propaganda was being perpetrated upon unsuspecting Americans.” Better yet, perhaps we need to know how we are being controlled! So before we lose you in our web of deception and lies, remember that Jade Helm is telling us that the goal is to control the human domain.
First we need to drill down on some of the basic terms and strategies before we bring the full picture into view. Stay with us and keep reading, fellow patriots.
The Deceptive Art of Perception Management
Throughout human history, governments have been interested in “mastering the human domain.” The mind control of their populations, what we once called propaganda, is now called perception management, political diplomacy and other such deceptive names. This theme is echoed in the slogan for Jade Helm, “Mastering the human domain.”
The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which was just updated for 2016, provides that the Department of Defense, through the Broadcasting Board of Governors, controls all broadcasting both international and domestic. Therefore, Obama is acting legally carrying out “false flag” events inside the US borders. Obama is not a traitor for this activity; he is a lawyer who made it legal to be a traitor. Obama is not only at war with Syria, Libya, Iraq, Somalia and Yemen; he is also at war with Americans who don’t support his policies.
Obama has made a commitment to disarm Americans called the United Nation’s Small Arms Treaty. This treaty is consistent with his efforts to dismantle the Second Amendment. It is this motivation that seems to have driven his non-stop agenda for disarming America and empowering the executive branch of the government, i.e., his own agenda of bombing sovereign nations and bringing America under the control of the United Nations and his administration. This, coupled with his continued efforts to broaden his powers through the NDAA, Executive Orders, and Presidential Policy Directives creates a clear picture of manipulating public sentiment with the force of a military war on his American opponents.
United Nations Small Arms Treaty
In 2011 Obama signed the United Nations Small Arms Treaty and since then there have been 108 mass shootings in America in less than a 4 year period. In the four years before Obama was elected (2003-2007) there was a total of 27 mass shootings. Prior to 2003 there was an average of 2.5 mass shootings per year. In 2015 alone, there have been over 58. That is over 20 times higher than it was before. (MSA Data, 2015)
The Small Arms Guns Treaty has been passed by the UN and is ready to go into effect across the world. The treaty passed in the general assembly in April 2013. The treaty, which seeks to prevent and control the illicit trade of weapons while regulating the international trade of them, includes measures such as creating a national gun registry; mandating control of firearms and ammunition; regulating the manufacture of gun parts; and limiting stores’ ability to sell firearms. The NRA and a bipartisan majority of pro-gun Senators have succeeded in blocking this treaty’s ratification in the United States. This treaty violates the Second Amendment. For any UN treaty to have any effect on American laws, it must first be ratified by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.
NDAA Provides for Legal Propaganda
Through the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act the US government has the legal regulation to use propaganda against foreign audiences and American citizens. The intention is to sway public opinion by using television, radio, newspapers, and social media targeting American and foreign targets in controlled psy-ops or perception management.
The NDAA has an amendment added that negates the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 (SMA) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987. These laws made propaganda used to influence foreigners and US citizens illegal. The Broadcasting Board of Governors is not new as it was created from SMA; although today it is quite a different agency as you will read. Originally, this agency claimed to “inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy.
Amendment 114 of the NDAA was approved by the House in May of 2012.
The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act (2012) reads:
Sec. 501. (a) The Secretary and the Broadcasting Board of Governors are authorized to use funds appropriated or otherwise made available for public diplomacy information programs to provide for the preparation, dissemination, and use of information intended for foreign audiences abroad about the United States, its people, and its policies, through press, publications, radio, motion pictures, the Internet, and other information media, including social media, and through information centers, instructors, and other direct or indirect means of communication.
(b)(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), the Secretary and the Broadcasting Board of Governors may, upon request and reimbursement of the reasonable costs incurred in fulfilling such a request, make available, in the United States, motion pictures, films, video, audio, and other materials prepared for dissemination abroad or disseminated abroad.
According to Michael Hastings: “The new law would give sweeping powers to the State Department and Pentagon to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public.”
“It removes the protection for Americans,” says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. “It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.”
Representatives Mac Thornberry (R-TX) and Adam Smith (D-WA) in the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act (2012) (H.R. 5736), advocate that it is time to liberate the authority of the US government to broadcast American produced foreign propaganda in the U.S.
The amendment empowers the State Department and Pentagon to utilize all forms of media against the American public for the sake of coercing US citizens to believe whatever version of the truth the US government wants them to believe. All oversight is removed with Amendment 114. Regardless of whether the information disseminated is truthful, partially truthful or completely false bears no weight.
Four billion dollars per year is spent by the Pentagon on propaganda aimed at the American public; as well as $202 million spent by the Department of Defense on misinformation operations in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2011. The Pentagon is using fake handles on social media sites to purvey false information, harass users and enact perception management to influence Americans. Sophisticated software allows military to engage in online conversations with coordinated answers, blog comments and instant messaging remarks that are solely meant to spread pro-American propaganda.
This new perception management is called Information Operations (IO), which is defined as “the integrated employment of electronic warfare (EW), computer network operations (CNO), psychological operations (PSYOP), military deception (MILDEC), and operations security (OPSEC), in concert with specified supporting and related capabilities, to influence, disrupt, corrupt or usurp adversarial human and automated decision making while protecting our own.”
Repealing the Smith-Mundt Act allows the direct deployment of these tactics on the American public.
Information Operations activities are undertaken to shape the essential narrative of a conflict or situation and thus affect the attitudes and behaviors of the targeted audience and equates descriptions of combat operations with standard marketing strategies. With the NDAA 2012 in its current form, the State Department and Pentagon can go beyond manipulating mainstream media outlets and directly disseminate campaigns of misinformation to the U.S. public. Successful wars require domestic acceptance.
The NDAA 2012 – specifically Section 1021(b)(2) – has already institutionalized the U.S. military’s ability to indefinitely detain, without charge or trial, citizens and non-citizens alike. Major parts of the legislation are based on the assumption that key legal protections for individuals are incompatible with the requirements of national security.
The purpose of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 is “to authorize the domestic dissemination of information and material about the United States intended primarily for foreign audiences.” The act was added to the 2013 NDAA bill as section of 1078 to amend certain passages of Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987. The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 passed Congress as part of the NDAA 2013 on December 28, 2012. Amendments made to the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987 allow for materials produced by the State Department and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) to be released within US borders.
National Defense Resources Preparedness Order
In 2012 Obama signed an order called National Defense Resources Preparedness giving himself explicit control over the nation and declaring a permanent state of Martial Law in the U.S. The very same year, Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which gave the U.S. Government the right to detain anyone for anything indefinitely. He has renewed that order every year since then. The Obama administration was even able to get a court ruling overturned after the ruling had successfully removed the Indefinite Detention provision from the NDAA.
Virginia Wakes Up
A bill introduced in the Virginia assembly (HB2144) would take the next step in stopping illegal federal kidnapping under the 2012 NDAA. Virginia stood alone and passed the first bill in the country addressing detention provisions written into the NDAA in 2012. That law forbids state agencies, in some situations, from cooperating with any federal attempts to exercise the indefinite detention provisions written into sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.
What Did They Say about NDAA?
“NDAA, and SOPA would put us on a par with the most oppressive nations in the world.” Sergey Brin, Google co-founder
“I never thought I would have to write this: but – incredibly – Congress has now passed the National Defense Appropriations Act, with Amendment 1031, which allows for the military detention of American citizens.” Naomi Wolf, author
“…bold and dangerous attempt to establish martial law in America.” Presidential candidate Rand Paul
“…was carefully crafted to mislead the public.” Justin Amash, U. S. Representative
“Provisions that were snuck into the bill with little notice from mainstream media could spell indefinite detention without a hearing, keep Guantanamo open, and hinder fair trials.” Amnesty International
“Myth #3: U.S. citizens are exempted from this new bill: This is simply false, at least when expressed so definitively and without caveats. The bill is purposely muddled on this issue which is what is enabling the falsehood.” Glenn Greenwald, constitutional lawyer
“What the American People are witnessing now with this new legislation is the further development of an American Police State into a Military Dictatorship, a process that was started by the so-called USA Patriot Act in 2001.” “If it is enacted into law, America will lose all pretense of having our Military subjected to the control of democratically elected civilian leaders as originally envisioned and required by the Constitution. Professor Francis Boyle, constitutional law authority at the University of Illinois, Champaign.
NDAA Versions Continue to Erode Bill of Rights and Constitution
The 2013 version of the NDAA allows the State Department and Defense Department to direct the same kind of massive propaganda campaigns here in the U.S. that are presently waged as part of American war efforts in foreign lands. The US government propaganda is directed at the American people with the belief that successful wars require domestic acceptance.
The 2013 NDAA overturned a 64-year ban on the domestic dissemination of propaganda which is described as public diplomacy information. It preaches freedom of the press abroad while practicing censorship at home. The resources and personnel who focus on talking about America overseas are diverted in favor of domestic perception management. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.
NDAA 2014 underwrote $662 billion for continued US aggression in our many foreign wars while, on the domestic front, it violates the Bill of Rights. According to the American Civil Liberties Union, it authorizes presidents “to order the military to pick up and imprison people, including U.S. citizens, without charging them or putting them on trial.”
The ACLU charges the provisions of NDAA “were negotiated by a small group of members of Congress, in secret, and without proper congressional review (and), are inconsistent with fundamental American values embodied in the Constitution….(our) fundamental freedoms are on the line.”
We had already had many of the provisions of the Bill of Rights supplanted by the Patriot Act. President Carter has denounced the Patriot Act for authorizing federal agents “to search people’s homes and businesses secretly, to confiscate property without any deadline or without giving notice that the intrusion had taken place, and to collect without notice personal information on American citizens including their medical histories, books checked out of libraries, and goods they purchase.”
The National Defense Authorization Act for 2016 is costing Americans $612 billion. Obama skirts around the Constitution by having the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Sections 1021 and 1022, which authorizes indefinite military detention, without charge or without trial, any person, including an American citizen, and applies the “Laws of War,” to U.S. soil, making the United States legally a battlefield.
Obama claims he will develop “An Appropriate Legal Regime” to permanently detain people prior to having committed any crime. The idea of these detentions would be to prevent any individual from committing a possible future crime. Obama says that he might detain someone up to ten years before they might commit a crime. The NDAA removes all of the rights guaranteed under the Bill of Rights except the 2nd Amendment, and you know how hard Obama is trying to get rid of that also.
Obama’s Executive Orders
President Obama has been using executive orders (EO’s) in ways they have never been used before. He is using them to do end-runs around Congress by legislating from the White House. Some EO’s are dormant but pose a potential future threat. One of those is EO 13603 which was signed EO 13603 on March 16, 2012. The purpose is to delegate authority and address “National Defense” resource policies and programs under the Defense Production Act of 1950. It provides the framework and authority for the allocation or appropriation of resources, materials and services to promote “National Defense.” It is an update of a prior EO’s on the National Defense Resources Preparedness. One difference which is concerning is that the definition “national emergency” is now broader and quite vague.
Executive Order 13603 – National Defense Resources Preparedness allows the government to completely control our lives through the “industrial and technological base,” should the president declare a “national emergency.” It gives Obama the power over “all commodities and products capable of being ingested by human beings and animals; all forms of energy; all forms of civil transportation; all usable water from all sources; health resources; forces labor such as military conscription; and federal officials can issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources.”
Presidential Policy Directives
In the Barack Obama Administration, the directives that are used to promulgate Presidential decisions on “National Security” matters are designated Presidential Policy Directives (PPDs). Directives that are used to initiate policy review procedures are called Presidential Study Directives (PSDs). In May 2013, the Administration issued a previously unknown category of directive known as a Presidential Policy Guidance (PPG).
Presidential Policy Directives have the same legal force as an Executive Order, forming a body of largely secret law. Executive Orders are public and must be published in the Federal Register whereas PPDs are not. It is a secret law.
President Obama’s directive on hostage policy was originally released as Presidential Policy Directive numbered PPD-29. When the White House corrected that number to PPD-30, it meant Obama had issued a secret directive as PPD-29. Of the 30 PPDs issued by Obama, 19 have not been released. And for 11 of those, the White House has not disclosed even the subject of the order. Not even Congress has a copy. It’s a domain of unchecked presidential authority.
Alarming Trends in the Military
Since Obama took office, an unprecedented number of top military leaders have been removed from their posts – nearly 200 generals, flag officers and other high-ranking officials. They are being “removed” at a rate of about one per week. In 2013, an ex-Navy Seal came forward and warned that Obama is firing soldiers who say they would not fire upon US Citizens if ordered.
Recently, the Department of Homeland Security was caught buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, enough to have sustained our war in Iraq for twenty years. Earlier this year, the DHS purchased another 62 million rounds of AR-15 hollow point ammo claiming it was allocated for “target practice.”
The military wants to transform Information Operations into a core military competency on a par with air, ground, maritime and special operations including: the integrated employment of electronic warfare (EW), computer network operations (CNO), psychological operations (PSYOP), military deception (MILDEC), and operations security (OPSEC), in concert with specified supporting and related capabilities, to influence, disrupt, corrupt or usurp adversarial human and automated decision making while protecting our own.
IO intends to shape the essential narrative of a conflict or situation and thus affect the attitudes and behaviors of the targeted audience and equates combat operations with standard marketing strategies.
History of American Internal Propaganda and the BBG
In January 1983, President Reagan took the first formal step to create an 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. This group was run through the Department of Defense.
The DoD’s Broadcasting Board of Governors traces its beginnings to the early Cold War years, as a covert propaganda project of the newly-created Central Intelligence Agency to wage “psychological warfare” against Communist regimes and others deemed a threat to US interests. In 1948, National Security Council Directive 10/2 officially authorized the CIA to engage in “covert operations” against the Communist Menace. Clause 5 of the directive defined “covert operations” as “propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance movements, guerrillas and refugee liberation groups, and support of indigenous anti-communist elements in threatened countries of the free world.” Propaganda quickly became one of the key weapons in the CIA’s covert operations arsenal. The agency established and funded radio stations, newspapers, magazines, historical societies, research institutes, and cultural programs all over Europe.
The BBG was officially formed in 1999 and ran on a $721 million dollar annual budget. It reports directly to the Secretary of State and operates a host of Cold War-era CIA spinoffs and “psychological warfare” projects: Radio Free Europe, Radio Free Asia, Radio Martí, Voice of America, Radio Liberation from Bolshevism and a dozen other government-funded radio stations and media outlets pumping out pro-American propaganda across the globe.
The BBG is managed by a military think-tank and is no longer funded by the CIA’s black budget. Its role in “psychological warfare” continues but its operations are openly funded. The BBG and its subsidiaries still engage in propaganda warfare, subversion and soft-power projection against anyone deemed hostile to US interests and “National Security.” And it is still deeply intertwined with the same military and CIA-connected intelligence organizations. The Broadcasting Board of Governors runs a propaganda network that blankets the globe.
The BBG is also involved in the technology of post-Cold War, Internet-era propaganda. It has bankrolled satellite Internet access in Iran and continues to fund an SMS-based social network in Cuba called Piramideo.
As the BBG outlined in a 2013 fact sheet for its “Internet Anti-Censorship” unit: “The BBG collaborates with other Internet freedom projects and organizations, including RFA’s Open Technology Fund, the State Department, USAID, and DARPAs SAFER Warfighter Communications Program. IAC is also reaching out to other groups interested in Internet freedom such as Google, Freedom House and the National Endowment for Democracy’s Center for International Media Assistance.”
Today, the Congressionally-funded federal agency is also one of the biggest backers of grassroots and open-source Internet privacy technology. These investments started in 2012, when the BBG launched the “Open Technology Fund” (OTF). The BBG endowed Radio Free Asia’s Open Technology Fund with a multimillion dollar budget and a single task: “to fulfill the US Congressional global mandate for Internet freedom.”
The Open Technology Fund supports many new encryption programs like: CryptoCat, Tor, Open Whisper Systems, LEAP, GlobaLeaks, ChatSecure, and Orbot. In 2014, Congress increased the BBG’s “Internet freedom” budget to $25 million. In 2014, OTF launched a coordinated project with Dropbox and Google to make free, easy-to-use privacy tools, and Facebook announced it was incorporating the underlying encryption technology of one of OTF’s flagship projects – OpenWhisper Systems – into its WhatsApp text messaging service.
It should seem suspicious that DoD’s money would be so warmly welcomed by some of the Internet’s fiercest anti-government activists. Why is a federally-funded CIA spinoff with decades of experience in “psychological warfare” suddenly blowing tens of millions in government funds on privacy tools meant to protect people from being surveilled by another arm of the very same government? It is called: “Perception Management.”
Perception Management Is Being Used Against You
Perception management is a term originated by the US Department of Defense. It defines it as: “Actions to convey and/or deny selected information and indicators to foreign audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning as well as to intelligence systems and leaders at all to influence official estimates, ultimately resulting in foreign behaviors and official actions favorable to the originator’s objectives. In various ways, perception management combines truth projection, operations security, cover and deception, and psychological operations.”
The factors that influence the targeted audience consist of the following:
Ambiguity: If ambiguity increases, the perceiver may find it harder to form an accurate perception.
Social status: a person’s real or perceived position in society or in an organization.
Impression management: an attempt to control the perceptions or impressions of others.
The phrase “perception management” has often functioned as a euphemism for “an aspect of information warfare.” The distinction between “perception management” and public diplomacy, which “does not, as a rule, involve falsehood and deception, whereas these are important ingredients of perception management; the purpose is to get the other side to believe what one wishes it to believe, whatever the truth may be.”
Although perception management operations are typically carried out within the international arena between governments, and between governments and citizens, use of perception management techniques have become part of mainstream information management systems. Businesses may even contract with other businesses to conduct perception management for them, or they may conduct it in-house with their public relations staff.
The term “perception management” is not new to the lexicon of government language. For years the FBI has listed foreign perception management as one of eight “key issue threats” to “National Security”, including it with terrorism, attacks on critical US infrastructure, and weapons proliferation among others. The FBI clearly recognizes perception management as a threat when it is directed at the US by foreign governments. Deception and sleight of hand are important in gaining advantages in war, both to gain domestic support of the operations and for the military against the enemy
In late 2001, after 9/11, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld created the Pentagon’s Office of Strategic Influence (OSI). The Office of Special Plans was created with a goal of selective intelligence vetting outside the normal chartered intelligence apparatus, with foreign propaganda activities moved to the Office of Information Activities under the direction of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations and Low Intensity Conflict. Strategic influence, special plans, psychological operations (psy-ops), and perception management are all direct synonyms within the DoD.
The DoD has identified the information domain as its new “asymmetric flank.” The level of use of perception management is continuing to grow throughout the military. There are now specialists, known as psychological operations officers and civil affairs officers, whose only purpose is to decide how to present information/propaganda to the media and to the people of the current country.
False Flag (Perception Management) Characteristics
Let’s compare what Wikipedia tells us are the “12 basic strategies of perception management” with what might be its counterpart in “characteristics of a false flag event.”
Ambiguity: if ambiguity increases, the perceiver finds it harder to form an accurate perception.
Counterpart: Eyewitnesses have conflicting accounts.
Social status: targeting a person’s position in society or in an organization
Counterpart: The official narrative has obvious domestic and geopolitical advantages for the governing body.
Impression management: the perceptions or impressions of others
Counterpart: The narrative behind the attack serves to leverage emotions like fear, as well as patriotism, in order to manufacture consent around a previously controversial issue.
Preparation – having clear goals and knowing the ideal position you want people to hold.
Counterpart: Military and law enforcement training drills occur on the same day very close by causing confusion to obscure eye witness testimony and allow orchestrators to plant both patsies, disinformation and backup operatives. Immediate calls for gun control or restricting civil liberties.
5. Credibility – all information uses prejudices or expectations to increase credibility.
Counterpart: News agencies keep saying that they are “being given reports” or “being told” and do not cite who reported or told them the unconfirmed information they broadcast as real.
6. Multi-channel support – have multiple arguments and fabricated facts to reinforce your information.
Counterpart: No obvious motive for the mass attack and no prior indicators. Shooter leaves manifesto or lots of evidence “proving” they were “radicalized” or “on drugs” or other were other undesirables.
7. Centralized control – employ entities to promote propaganda.
Counterpart: Fake “victims” and crisis actors.
Security – the nature of the deception campaign is known by few.
Counterpart: All drill participants and crisis actors sign Non-disclosure Agreements with “National Security” clause promising swift and severe punishment if broken. Everyone involved is on a “need to know” basis and kept in the dark about the overall intent of the event.
Flexibility – the deception campaign adapts and changes over time as needs change.
Counterpart: Evidence gets destroyed or tampered with and the details don’t matter because the culprits are dead. No more interest in an investigation.
Coordination – organize in a hierarchy to maintain consistent distribution of information.
Counterpart: The federal agencies trump the local law enforcement agencies due to the “National Security” element of the drill which is ultimately controlled by the Department of Defense.
Concealment – contradicting information is destroyed.
Counterpart: Culprit is dead and evidence disappears from news reports, Internet, and media. Patsy has no military training, yet shoots extremely fast and accurately but no authority looks at the evidence.
Untruthful statements – fabricate the truth.
Counterpart: Families of “victims” have acting backgrounds and receive payoffs in GoFundMe accounts and direct payoffs, especially mortgages. They often show little to no emotion, and even smile or laugh. The lie perpetuates and the “official story” is shaped by the media into truth.
In 2015, DARPA’s “Narrative Networks” (or N2) program is producing results. The project is intended to analyze how “narratives” play into human psychology, delving into the way these constructs affect the mind. A narrative is a way of phrasing something, a choice of words that is likely a biased strategy to frame information.
“Narratives exert a powerful influence on human thoughts, emotions and behavior and can be particularly important in security contexts. Conflict resolution and counterterrorism scenarios and detecting the neural response underlying empathy induced by stories is of critical importance.” From DARPA researchers in a paper published in the Journal of Neuroscience Methods.
Mastery of “narratives” could potentially be used to manipulate the perception of a population using platforms of communication like television to subtly and potently make a person think a certain way.
“Governments often use stories to present information, so understanding how we comprehend them is important,” said co-author Eric Schumacher, an associate professor of psychology at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Researchers observed a phenomenon of “tunnel vision,” or impaired reasoning, triggered in the brain when viewers processed a suspenseful moment. When suspense grew, brain activity in the viewers’ peripheral vision decreased.
The US Military has a long history of funding psychological experiments, some entrenched in human rights violations. Now we have the Pentagon-funded DARPA program which pays researchers at colleges and other scientists millions of dollars to enhance and bolster methods of war. Such work places great technological power in the hands of the Department of Defense.
DARPA’s Narrative Networks as Mind-Control
DARPA launched the Narrative Networks program to understand how narratives influence human cognition and behavior, and apply those findings in international security contexts. Narratives may consolidate memory, shape emotions, cue heuristics and biases in judgment, and influence group distinctions.
The Narrative Networks Program has three parallel tracks of research and development:
Develop quantitative analytic tools to study narratives and their effects on human behavior in security contexts;
Analyze the neurobiological impact of narratives on hormones and neurotransmitters, reward processing, and emotion-cognition interaction; and
Develop models and simulations of narrative influence in social and environmental contexts, develop sensors to determine their impact on individuals and groups, and suggest doctrinal modifications.
DARPA is studying Narrative Comprehension and Persuasion in a study entitled: Toward Narrative Disruptors and Inductors: Mapping the Narrative Comprehension Network and Its Persuasive Effects. The DARPA-funded research project ($6.1 million) is studying the effectiveness of different narratives in efforts of mass persuasion. Using MRI and EEG they will map areas of the brain involved in narrative comprehension and even attempt to enhance or disrupt narrative understanding using this information as well as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. It will study the neurobiology of narrative comprehension, validate narrative theories and explore the connection between narrative and persuasion. This groundbreaking research study will employ multi-modal neuro-imaging, combining the temporal resolution of EEG with the spatial resolution of MRI.
This project will provide empirical evidence integrating brain regions and cognitive processes into a neural network of narrative comprehension. By virtue of the experimental design, these relationships will also directly inform the primary aspects of narrative and strategic communication under examination: narrative validity, narrative transportation, and vertical integration. The empirical correlation of narrative theory to neurocognitive activity is an important advance in the understanding of narrative and how the brain governs narrative comprehension.
The programs goals include:
– Integrate narrative theory, neuroimaging, and persuasive outcomes.
– Resolve conceptual problems in narrative and psychology of religion.
– Produce significant innovations in the study of the neuropsychology of narrative.
– Generate practical innovations.
– Tests key narrative theories from communication, literary studies, and psychology.
– Uses stimuli based on religious master narratives.
– Understand the psychological effects of particular message features.
– Attend to the relationship between narrative and political violence in contested populations.
– Disrupt or enhance aspects of narrative structure, and/or brain functioning, to minimize or maximize persuasive effects on subject proclivity to engage in political violence.
– Mapping the Narrative Comprehension Network will provide empirical leverage for developing models of narrative comprehension that are biologically plausible. Moreover, the current research will establish how narrative elicits persuasion in the brain.
– Predicting a particular narrative message influence on an audience.
– Introducing new stories into the narrative system to disrupt its coherence.
Rational logic aspires to be objective, repeatable, consistent and impersonal, whereas narrative logic works on completely different principles. It is rooted in the simultaneously cognitive and emotional processing of information that marks human behavior, and finds its validity in principles of coherence and fidelity. These qualities help explain the seemingly irrational persuasive power of narrative and provide guidance for how to manipulate narrative stimuli in order to accurately map the Narrative Comprehension Network in the brain.
Culture provides schema, or templates, for ordering narrative data (top-down); individuals process incoming story data and organize it with a selected schema. The process continues until comprehension is achieved, or lack of comprehension mandates implementation of a new schema. A master narrative can be seen as an exemplar narrative schema. Because master narratives embody specific cultural values, they can be strategically deployed as an explanatory frame for current events in order to encourage a particular interpretation and for persuasive purposes. Master narratives execute ideological functions, positioning these cultural values as naturalized and universal.
Vertical integration is achieved when personal, local and master narratives all line up consistently. This congruence formulates a powerful model for identity formation and persuasion. Cognitive processes that are indicated by vertical integration to be part of the Narrative Comprehension Network include: self-recognition, identity, and theory of mind (to see oneself in a story), pattern recognition (to see parallels between master narratives and contemporary situations), and memory (to remember the master narrative elements).
Subliminal Mind Control – SSS
The “Sound of Silence” is a military-intelligence code-word for certain psychotronic weapons of mass mind-control tested in the mid-1950s, perfected during the 70s, and used extensively by the US military in the early 90s. This weapon is based on subliminal carrier technology, or the Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS). It was developed for military use by Dr. Oliver Lowery of Norcross, Georgia, and is described in US Patent #5,159,703 – “Silent Subliminal Presentation System” for commercial use in 1992.
The patent abstract reads:
“A silent communications system in which non-aural carriers, in the very low (ELF) or very high audio-frequency (VHF) range or in the adjacent ultrasonic frequency spectrum, are amplitude- or frequency-modulated with the desired intelligence and propagated acoustically or vibrationally, for inducement into the brain, typically through the use of loudspeakers, earphones, or piezoelectric transducers. The modulated carriers may be transmitted directly in real time or may be conveniently recorded and stored on mechanical, magnetic, or optical media for delayed or repeated transmission to the listener.”
The Sound of Silence Spread Spectrum broadcasting equipment allows for the implantation of thoughts, emotions, and even prescribed physical actions into human beings. In the private sector SSSS goes by the name Silent Subliminal Presentation System and the technology has also been released to certain corporate vendors who have attached brand names like BrainSpeak and Silent Subliminals to their own SSSS-based products.
It is a technology that uses subliminal programming that is carried over Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) broadcast waves, planting inaudible messages directly into the subconscious human mind. Perfected more than twenty years ago by the DoD and battlefield-tested upon Iraqi soldiers in the Gulf War during 1991, SSSS is a proven weapon.
The US Government has plans to extend the range of this technology to envelop all peoples, all countries through BBG broadcasts. SSSS is completely undetectable by those being targeted and it delivers its subliminal programming directly to the human brain via the auditory sense at frequencies that humans are incapable of perceiving as sound, there is no defense against it. Coupled with the use of supercomputers, an individual’s unique electroencephalographic (EEG) patterns can be digitally altered and then stored for rebroadcast via digital UHF. Computer-enhanced EEGs can identify and isolate the brain’s low-amplitude emotion signature clusters, synthesize them and they can then be broadcast over TV and radio signals directly into the brain where they can then silently trigger the same basic emotion in another human being.
DARPA and Social Media
The SMISC program has invested millions of dollars investigating social media, social networks, and how information spreads across them. One study, funded by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), entitled “Containment Control for a Social Network with State-Dependent Connectivity” demonstrates that the mathematical principles used to control groups of autonomous robots can be applied to social networks in order to control human behavior. If properly calibrated, the mathematical models developed by Dixon and his fellow researchers could be used to sway the opinion of social networks toward a desired set of behaviors. It is called soft Info-warfare.
DARPA launched its SMISC program in 2011 to examine ways social networks could be used for propaganda and what broadly falls under the title of Military Information Support Operations (MISO), formerly known as Psychological Operations – psy-ops. The SMISC program includes studies that analyze Twitter, investigate the spread of Internet memes; automatically identifying deceptive content in social media with linguistic cues; and modeling user attitude toward controversial topics in online social media. It models how collaboration between “key influencers” in social networks could affect the behavior of groups within the network by using the principle of “containment control.”
British intelligence agency GCHQ has developed tools specifically aimed at leveraging social media for “effects” operations. The organization has shared its methods with the NSA, and these capabilities have been used in Afghanistan and elsewhere to “shape” information available to members of targeted organizations online and via mobile phones.
The Department of Defense already uses some social media manipulation techniques as part of its “information support” operations, targeting message boards and websites associated with foreign groups that are considered “extremist.” In April, the Associated Press uncovered an effort by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in 2009 to create ZunZuneo, a Twitter-like mobile social network aimed at undermining the Communist regime in Cuba. The research that DoD is financing has much broader cultural implications than as a tool of information warfare against adversaries abroad.
Psy-Ops and DARPA
DARPA’s new ultrasonic neural interface devices can frame information as narratives which shape, explain, and make sense of data. Cognitive computers themselves can also do this – creating news articles from pooled data with no human being involved. What used to be called propaganda is now called “strategic communications” that tell a stories or create narrative networks. DARPA is focused on creating counter-narratives, or stories they believe will counteract the effects of radicalization.
The Ultrasonic Neural Interface Program is used to affect changes in a person’s beliefs, their sense of identity, and even memory, partly because they stimulate the release of brain chemicals. Neural interfaces and narrative networks can manipulate the brain using electrical and/or magnetic energy. The most common is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). When targeted at a specific area in the brain, TMS can create a variety of effects, including emotional changes and bodily movement. Its goals were to: (i) map out the precise areas of the brain that are affected by stories; (ii) analyze how people respond to specific stories; and (iii) test ways of changing their response to a story, i.e. by altering the story format, and/or zapping their brains with TMS. This technique is more properly referred to as neuromodulation, and involves stimulating the release of neurotransmitters by targeting specific areas of the brain with electromagnetic pulses.
DARPA’s research has found that stories affect our emotions, our cultural and religious beliefs, and even memory. In other words, the narratives we hear (on TV, in the news, blogs, tweets, etc) affect important brain chemicals, and therefore our very identities. So do pulsed electromagnetic fields – such as TMS.
DARPA is clearly aware of the vast range of possible applications for these devices, and have also been funding a new way of altering brain chemistry, called pulsed ultrasound. Focused ultrasound can deliver, “complex spatio-temporal patterns of acoustic waves” to achieve similar results to TMS, but has a spatial resolution which is five times greater, and can reach far deeper into the brain. Ultrasound can be used to activate reward pathways (dopamine) in the brain which may be used to condition and/or reinforce certain desired attributes and/or to motivate specific behavioral actions.
DARPA has spent several years analyzing universal narrative structures, and the physiological effects they have on people, as well as tracking popular narratives (and the memes they produce) in social media. The US Government’s Strategic Communications plan involves sentiment analysis, the use of counter-narratives, and ‘downvoting’ stories which it does not approve of, preventing discussion of certain ‘banned’ topics, as well as using “persona management software” to create false identities, and thus manipulate public perception of news and fool people into believing in a false “popular consensus.”
One part of the new Psy-op strategy is controlling the conversation. By manipulating the news we hear, our primal responses can therefore be influenced, without us even knowing it. Brain-to-computer interfaces (BCIs) are already being used to link people’s minds/feelings to a movie they’re watching. MyndPlay have devised an EEG headset which monitors the viewer’s emotional reactions to the movie, and changes the ending accordingly.
New DARPA Projects to Enslave Our Minds
DARPA is one of the government-sponsored research agencies that most boldly explores the future of science and technology. Given that many of its research projects have military applications, it has been traditional for the agency to be secretive about them. In recent years, however, DARPA has been embracing the benefits of open source, particularly for promoting rapid innovation. With an annual budget of $2.8 billion, DARPA drives a good portion of the advanced research that happens at universities and corporations in the US.
DARPA has given out open source software that has been sponsored by the agency. The focus area for first year is the XDATA initiative that is developing open source infrastructure for supporting big data. DARPA has an open source strategy for areas of work including big data to help increase the impact of government investments in building a flexible technology base.
One new DARPA program is to remotely disrupt political dissent and extremism by employing “Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation” (TMS) in tandem with sophisticated propaganda based on this technology. The research at Arizona State University is entitled, “Toward Narrative Disruptors and Inductors: Mapping the Narrative Comprehension Network and its Persuasive Effects.” TMS stimulates the temporal lobe of the brain with electromagnetic fields. This research aims to induce or disrupt the operation of narratives within the brain. This area of study has received $100 million in funding via Obama’s ten-year BRAIN Project, as well as a $1.3 billion commitment from Europe.
DARPA is the research and development tool of the National Security Council and thus has carte blanche to openly seek help from industry and the private sector to build the most cutting edge war devices that anyone can imagine. Below we list some declassified projects but the ones that are most heinous are still classified.
DARPA’s Open Catalog contains a curated list of DARPA-sponsored software and peer-reviewed publications. DARPA sponsors fundamental and applied research in a variety of areas that may lead to experimental results and reusable technology designed to benefit multiple government domains. The DARPA Open Catalog organizes publicly releasable material from DARPA programs. DARPA has an open strategy to help increase the impact of government investments. DARPA is interested in building communities around government-funded research. DARPA plans to continue to make available information generated by DARPA programs, including software, publications, data, and experimental results.
Some recently released DARPA projects are listed below and demonstrate that DARPA is focused on “Controlling the Human Domain” in every way possible.
The Active Authentication (AA) program seeks to develop novel ways of validating the identity of computer users by focusing on the unique aspects of individuals through software-based biometrics. Biometrics are defined as the characteristics used to recognize individuals based on one or more intrinsic physical or behavioral traits. This program is focused on behavioral biometrics.
~Translation: Foundation code that gives NSA a system to identify all users whether encrypted or not.
The Anomaly Detection at Multiple Scales (ADAMS) program seeks to create, adapt and apply technology to anomaly characterization and detection in massive data sets. Anomalies in data cue the collection of additional, actionable information in a wide variety of real world contexts.
~Translation: NSA spying on everything to find “red flags” that trigger further surveillance.
The Automated Program Analysis for Cybersecurity (APAC) program aims to address the challenge of timely and robust security validation of mobile apps by first defining security properties to be measured against and then developing automated tools to perform the measuring. APAC seeks to apply recent research breakthroughs in this field in an attempt to scale DoD’s program analysis capability to a level never before achieved with an automated solution.
~Translation: DoD system to analyze all streaming data from all systems, encrypted or otherwise.
The Memex Program was released to Open Source in September 2014. Memex seeks to develop software that advances online search capabilities far beyond the current state of the art. Creation of a new domain-specific indexing and search paradigm will provide mechanisms for improved content discovery, information extraction, information retrieval, user collaboration, and extension of current search capabilities to the deep web, the dark web, and non-traditional (e.g. multimedia) content.
~Translation: NSA will now control all search engines that use Memex as the base code.
The Mission-oriented Resilient Clouds (MRC) program is addressing some of the security challenges facing cloud computing by developing technologies to detect, diagnose and respond to attacks in the cloud, with the goal of effectively building a ‘community health system’ for the cloud. MRC is also developing technologies intended to enable missions that are supported by cloud computing and other networked systems to continue functioning while under cyberattack.
~Translation: NSA control of all cloud computing with back doors directly to US cyber-control systems.
DARPA’s Programming Computation on Encrypted Data (PROCEED) program is a research effort that seeks to develop methods that allow computing with encrypted data without first decrypting that data, making it possible to compute more securely in untrusted environments.
~Translation: NSA double-speak for controlling all encryption and having a method of seeing through encryption without being detected.
The SAFER Program seeks to develop technology to enable safe, resilient communications over the Internet, particularly in situations in which third parties attempt to discover the identity or location of the end users, or block communications. The program also seeks to provide the technological quality of service required to support applications such as electronic mail, instant messaging, voice over IP, and other media that promote effective communication.
~Translation: NSA double-speak for complete control of IP address identifiers for surveillance from all devices.
Social Media in Strategic Communication (SMISC) program is to develop a new science of social networks built on an emerging technology base. Through the program, DARPA seeks to develop tools to support the efforts of human operators to counter misinformation or deception campaigns with truthful information.
~Translation: NSA control of all social media.
XDATA Program is developing an open source software library for big data to help overcome the challenges of effectively scaling to modern data volume and characteristics. The program is developing the tools and techniques to process and analyze large sets of imperfect, incomplete data. Its programs and publications focus on the areas of analytics, visualization, and infrastructure to efficiently fuse, analyze, and disseminate these large volumes of data.
~Translation: NSA system to analyze and target media users and all data.
DARPA and the Brain Initiative

~Translation: Mechanical psychiatrists will be able to prescribe neural restructuring of the personality.
Patents for Mind Control and Psy-Ops
The arsenal of mind control technologies developed by the government is quite vast. A number of well researched books on the subject have been published revealing the complexity and variety of these technologies. The US Patents described below define technology used for behavior manipulation through all types of media. These patents reflect “old” technology compared to DARPA classified projects. This list just shows the pervasiveness of this technology that is commonly found in all types of media.
Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors. US Patent #6,506,148, 1/14/2003
Physiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near 1/2 Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer monitors and TV tubes, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation. It is possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as a video signal. For certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with subliminal intensity.
Computer monitor and TV monitors can be made to emit weak low-frequency electromagnetic fields by pulsing the intensity of displayed images. Experiments have shown that the 1/2 Hz sensory resonance can be excited in this manner in a subject near the monitor. The 2.4 Hz sensory resonance can also be excited in this fashion. A TV monitor or computer monitor can be used to manipulate the nervous system of nearby people.
This method can be used in making movies and recording video tapes and DVDs. Video tapes can be edited such as to overlay the pulsing by means of modulating hardware. US Patent #872528, 6/1/2001

False Flags are Domestic LEGAL Propaganda
By now your head is probably spinning and you are, like us, sick to the core at what our elected officials are permitting to happen in our country and the world in the United States’ name.
President Obama, and the powers that are behind him, weren’t kidding when he said that he would transform America. They have a motive, a means, and an opportunity to effect positive public support for any agenda items through the work of the DoD and the BBG within the boundaries of America. It doesn’t matter whether it is gun control, the Iran Deal, bombing other nations, TPP, ObamaCare, NDAA, or any agenda item, somehow he pushes it through without much resistance. And when public consent cannot be manufactured with perception management and psychological manipulation of narrative networks, Obama just writes another Executive Order, Presidential Policy Directive (PPD), Presidential Study Directives (PSD) or Presidential Policy Guidance (PPG), or whatever he wants to rename his misuse of executive authority.
One thing is for sure: Obama seems to be unchallenged by his fellow politicians who must be part of some larger scheme that coerces their votes. They must be complicit. There must be a message in the media that promotes common political schemes without being “illegal”, “treasonous”, or even uncommon. Shaping the narrative with “talking points” is perception management of narrative networks.
In the name of “National Security” Obama has bombed Syria, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, and Yemen without any congressional approval. These acts of war were accompanied with excellent smoke and mirrors – perception management and DARPA subliminal devices. Only a few lone voices pointed out that we need congressional approval to wage war! Crickets…
Could the crickets be DARPA electronic warfare bouncing around in our manipulated brains?
Could Obama’s speeches be electronic warfare aimed at our neural narrative networks?
Why is DARPA so set on creating things that “control the human domain,” just as Jade Helm?
Has Jade Helm 2015 ended or does it get renewed each year by Obama just like the NDAA?
Are we targets for pro-Obama propaganda provided by the DoD’s BBG?
Could some false flags (where no one truly dies) be more propaganda films created by the huge BBG broadcasting network?
YES. The answer to all of these questions above is YES.
What Can We Do, Fellow Patriots?
First. Arm yourself with the truth – like a two edged sword. Read and re-read this article as painful as it may be for you. Do your own research from what we have provided you.
Second. Arm yourself with a consciousness higher than the driving force of global manipulation for personal power and greed – like a personal shield. Personal self-awareness has always been the fulcrum of human evolution. Oftentimes, it comes down to a few people, or even one person, who turns the tide of evil away from controlling the evolution of human consciousness. One lawsuit can turn the tables. One law. One person. One Patriot.
Third. Arm yourself with the knowledge of the weapons being used against you and the motives. Once you have that knowledge, you can find devices to counteract some of those weapons. There are an equal number of good devices to counter the evil ones.
Fourth. Arm yourself with the knowledge to discern when narratives (“story-lies”) are being used to manipulate you against your will. Take the 12 Steps of Perception Management, as presented above, and apply them to possible false flag scenarios to learn to recognize the patterns and see through to reality.
Fifth. Arm yourself against your enemy and attempt to neutralize them using their own methods and devices. A call goes out to all Patriots to secretly subvert political manipulation of Americans on American soil. In other words, wait for the right moment and then throw a monkey wrench into the works. Help the evil devices malfunction and upset the “official story” with random acts of Patriotism.
Sixth. Arm yourself with the justice of the law and bring lawsuits against domestic propaganda and subliminal manipulation of Americans – or anyone.
Seventh. Arm yourself against government agendas that now consider Americans to be enemy combatants on domestic soil who must be supportive of agendas that take away American civil liberties and constitutional rights.
Of course, we forgot to mention the first and most primal step – ‘get mad as hell about it and don’t take it anymore.’ The idea that you have been manipulated most of your life by commercial interests through legal subliminal programming is enough to demand answers: “Why the hell do elected officials and the government ‘allow’ this to happen?” And now you are armed with the answer: The “government” is doing the same thing to us but with military grade electronic warfare that is mind-boggling.
Warning: As you begin to go back in your memory of these events (9-11, Sandy Hook, San Bernardino, and many others) with this new awakening, you may feel raped, used, and manipulated. The more you watched the “shootings” the more you believed the “story” – the narrative. The more you were sucked in and could not get those images out of your head, the more your freedom was stolen. But, if you looked closely, the “man behind the curtain” is actually our own government. Only chaos and confusion arises from such evil manipulation and thus FEAR is bred. FEAR is another name for TERROR which is another name for WAR.
War is big business and it needs the best of marketing devices to get public support for presidential policy – in the name of “National Security,” which trumps all else.
We have an out-of-control president who uses military mind-control devices to manage the perceptions of American citizens to “make” them “allow” his unprecedented abuse of executive authority. Since he is the commander and chief and controls the DoD, which should have no authority inside of America, he needed the NDAA to legally permit him to consider Americans a threat to “National Security.” For five years he has consistently broaden his “powers” to take away civil liberties, virtually unchallenged.
The time is now to wake up and end electronic warfare in America through loopholes in the NDAA. This Act must be rewritten to specifically address these issues and make sure that American civil liberties are not violated by clever lawyers like Obama who have made treason legal.

Legal propaganda? Laws must be changed when people are murdered and treason is involved, the culprits hiding like cowards in the shadows must be indicted and sent to prison for a long time. Under the POS Obama administration for his 8 horrible years as well as 911 itself, there have been too many false flags of where either people were murdered, the ‘perpetrator’ was supposedly shot dead or committed suicide, crisis actors were identified at two or more different sites, half truths from MSM and the DOJ/FBI, globalist leftists/Democraps/hollywood yelling about gun control over and over, etc, etc.
Truth of the matter is that gun control to further control the citizens is what the globalists want desperately. More citizens will be murdered in mass until they finally get their way by orchestrating more false flag (murder to get an agenda passed) operations from the Deep State.
These globalists and their minions have no regard for citizens lives. Each death is just a stepping stone to their ultimate control.
Congress should be more concerned with pedophilia by their ranks. Drain the swamp and protect our citizens.
Lidiya Phillips on January 13, 2018 at 10:25 pm
I will add to the “What Can We Do, Fellow Patriots?”
Arm yourself with Lord’s prayers. Protect yourself with regular Communion taking, following the confession and the absolution of your sins and transgressiona, given by the priest. The Communion with the Blood and Body of Christ is the omnipotent personal shield. Personal self-awareness which has been the fulcrum of human evolution will be given to everyone who turns to God and Jesus with repentance and prayers for help.

Dumbest advice yet? ^ The Catholic Church & its non-married sexually conflicted priests r historically the source of much of the current ongoing spiritual issues confronting American Natives as they throw off the cloak of misinformation surrounding nonsensical blood rites (& nonsensical born-in-sin bs) as they choose, hopefully, to love G♡D in spite of the various orthodox Churchs ongoing collaboration with deep state’s ongoing attempts to sully the truth of G♡D’s love of S♡UL.

Pentagon Reviews Policies on Clandestine Information Warfare
Sep 19, 2022
Pentagon Reviews Policy of Creating Fake Social Media Accounts
By Charlie McCarthy
The Defense Department ordered an investigation into how it conducts clandestine information warfare, The Washington Post reported.
The Pentagon’s action comes after major social media companies, including Twitter and Facebook, identified and took offline fake accounts, suspected of being run by the U.S. military, in violation of the platforms’ rules, the Post reported.
Colin Kahl, the undersecretary of defense for policy, last week instructed the military commands that engage in psychological operations online to provide a full accounting of their activities by next month, the newspaper said.
Several defense and administration officials told the Post that the White House and some federal agencies expressed mounting concerns over the Pentagon’s attempted manipulation of audiences overseas.
The White House, the State Department and Defense Department officials have been concerned that policies regarding clandestine online operations are too broad and risk eroding U.S. credibility, the Post reported.
“Our adversaries are absolutely operating in the information domain,” a senior defense official told the Post. “There are some who think we shouldn’t do anything clandestine in that space. Ceding an entire domain to an adversary would be unwise. But we need stronger policy guardrails.”
Air Force Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder, Pentagon press secretary, told the Post in a statement that the military’s information operations “support our national security priorities” and must be conducted in compliance with relevant laws and policies. “We are committed to enforcing those safeguards.”
Internet researchers Graphika and the Stanford Internet Observatory last month said that more than 150 fake personas and media sites created in the U.S. were taken down in recent years by Twitter and Facebook.
Two officials told the Post that U.S. Central Command is among those whose activities are being scrutinized. Centcom, headquartered in Tampa, Florida, influences military operations across 21 countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central and South Asia.

7) Pentagon To Investigate US Military’s Alleged Secret Internet Influence Campaigns
By Micaela Burrow
The Pentagon has ordered an audit of the U.S. military’s recent efforts to spread pro-U.S. information through fake social media accounts, the Washington Post reported Monday.
Twitter and Facebook had repeatedly taken down accounts they suspected had direct ties to U.S. military branches, including U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), an investigation from Stanford University and Graphika in August found. Undersecretary for Defense Policy Colin Kohl on Tuesday directed the U.S. military commands that conduct online information warfare to submit a report on clandestine influence activities in October, the Post reported, citing officials familiar with the matter.
The military’s information operations uphold “national security priorities” and are beholden to existing U.S. policy and laws, Air Force Brig. Gen Pat Ryder told the Post. “We are committed to enforcing those safeguards,” he added.
The review seeks to determine what types of internet information operations the military is conducting, who they are targeting, what tools are being used and why and whether the operations were successful, according to the Post.
The White House, State Department and some Defense Department officials expressed concern over the alleged violation of Twitter and Facebook rules by the U.S. military, the Post reported, citing defense and administration officials familiar with the matter.
Twitter de-platformed at least 173 accounts purporting to represent individuals or media outlets between March 2012 and August 2022 thought to originate in the U.S. or Great Britain, according to Stanford and Graphika’s report. Facebook’s parent company Meta also removed 39 Facebook profiles, 16 pages, two groups and 26 Instagram accounts, which it attributed to the U.S.
Many of the accounts were taken down within the past three years, U.S. officials told the Post. Some accounts decried Russia’s “imperialist” war in Ukraine, although the report found that in general most profiles did not receive much engagement on their respective social media platforms.
Researchers did not find any conclusive connection to the U.S. military. However, the accounts demonstrated a heavy focus on events in Central Asia and the Middle East, overlapping with CENTCOM’s area of responsibility.
In 2020, Facebook took down fake Arabic, Farsi and Urdu-speaking accounts attributed to CENTCOM that spread information countering China’s claims that the coronavirus had emerged from a U.S. Army lab in Fort Detrick, Md., officials familiar with the matter told the Post.
CENTCOM has not commented on its use of social media accounts to manipulate viewers. Such activities would put the U.S. in line with Russia, China and Iran, known for their widespread use of bots and state-controlled social media personas in an attempt to sway audience opinions on sensitive issues, and would “absolutely be a violation of doctrine and training practices,” a defense official told the Post.
“Our adversaries are absolutely operating in the information domain,” another senior defense official told the Post. “Ceding an entire domain to an adversary would be unwise, but we need stronger policy guardrails.”
The Pentagon, CENTCOM, Facebook and Twitter did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s requests for comment.

Blacklisted News – by Lee Rogers, Jan. 8, 2014
In the midst of the holiday season Congress decided to pass the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014 or NDAA. The bill was later signed into law by President Obama with little if any fanfare. When this happened much of the corporate media was focusing in on invented news stories like the Duck Dynasty garbage. What’s really sad is that it is doubtful that many members of Congress have even read the bill at all. If they did in fact read it and voted for it knowing what was in it than there is little doubt that they have violated their oath of office and should be held accountable. The NDAA contains a number of highly questionable sections that run contrary to the principles articulated in the United States Constitution. Specifically, language contained in the bill appears to authorize cyber warfare operations against the American people.
One particularly horrifying section is section 1071 which authorizes the Department of Defense to enhance its capacity to analyze captured records. Apparently the National Security Agency by itself doesn’t have enough capabilities to analyze all of the records it captures so the Department of Defense is going to help. The section authorizes the Secretary of Defense to establish a center called the Conflict Records Research Center. The purpose of this new organization is to establish a research database to analyze records captured from countries, organizations and individuals now or once hostile to the United States. It defines a captured record as a document, audio file, video file, or other material captured during combat operations.
This language is purposefully broad and can be interpreted to also include records captured from American citizens who are simply angry at the criminality of the federal government. After all, the language infers that they can analyze records from individuals who are now or were once hostile to the United States and provides no exception based on citizenship or nationality. Due to the fact that the Internet is now increasingly being described as a 21st century battlefield, combat operations can also fall under the umbrella of offensive cyber warfare operations.
Section 1071 also allows the Secretary of Defense to accept gifts from any source that would enhance the operational capabilities or defray the costs of the Conflict Records Research Center. Sources allowed include corporations, foreign governments and private charities. The only exception is if the gifts or donations would compromise or appear to compromise the ability or integrity of the Department of Defense or any of its employees.
This language pretty much gives the green light for all sorts of dirty dealings and corporate espionage activities since the operational purpose of the Conflict Records Research Center is to be able to analyze as many records as possible. The more records and data that they have the more analysis they are able to perform. So by default this facility will be able to accept information from almost anyone. It makes it almost impossible to question their integrity by accepting data from anyone who volunteers information regardless of where it comes from.
All of this is even more concerning when one considers that the NDAA also has a lot of new cyber warfare initiatives. Section 931 through Section 942 contains a bunch of crazy stuff dealing with the world of cyber warfare..
Section 932 authorizes the creation of a position known as The Principal Cyber Advisor which will be responsible for supervising offensive and defensive cyber warfare activities. Obviously this position would not be created unless the federal government is intending upon involving itself in both offensive and defensive cyber warfare well into the future.
Section 933 instructs the Secretary of Defense to conduct a broad mission analysis of the government’s cyber warfare capabilities. The required analysis will focus primarily on how they will manage, increase and enhance their personnel assigned to cyber warfare operations. It even disallows the reduction of cyber warfare personnel assigned to the Air National Guard.
Section 936 requests the Secretary of Defense to strengthen outreach and threat awareness programs for small businesses. This is allegedly to assist businesses that are awarded contracts by the Department of Defense to understand cyber threats, develop plans to protect intellectual property and networks of such businesses. Realistically, this section appears to give the Department of Defense the authority to mandate all sorts of cyber security requirements on small businesses that they do transactions with. The language of the section makes it sound as if they will be doing these small businesses a favor when the opposite appears to be the case.
Section 940 authorizes the President to establish a process and policy to control the proliferation of cyber weapons through law enforcement activities, financial means, diplomatic engagement and pretty much any other means that the President considers appropriate. This would also include potential private industry participation in the initiative. The objective of the process is to suppress the trade of so-called cyber tools that could be used for criminal, terrorist or military activities. The term cyber weapon is not explicitly defined in the section so this could be considered almost anything be it software or hardware that they declare could potentially be used for a nefarious purpose. Even something like bit torrent and torrent related applications could be considered cyber weapons since copyrighted material is consistently transferred back and forth using these tools. As a result, the use of these tools could potentially fall under the classification of criminal activity. Once again we have the President being given expansive powers from Congress with its extremely broad use of language in the bill.
Section 941 directs the president to establish an interagency policy to deter adversaries in cyberspace. The word adversaries is yet again not specifically defined in the section so this could also mean almost anything. With many American citizens not trusting the United States government this could mean a policy to deter or stifle anyone from political opponents to protesters who voice their disgust on the Internet.
Overall, between the records collection initiative and the immense cyber warfare planning that is outlined in the NDAA it is becoming painfully clear that the United States government is turning the Internet into a battlefield. Obviously independent media outlets have done a great deal of damage to the legitimacy of the federal government by exposing their scams and frauds. So as a result, why wouldn’t the establishment view these voices of dissent as adversaries on a cyber battlefield? They could merely claim that these are entities spreading enemy propaganda or other ridiculous nonsense.
The little mainstream discussion that has been had on this legislation has focused primarily on the continued policy of indefinitely detaining so-called terrorists and Obama’s statement about how this bill will help to eventually close Guantanamo Bay. Of course Obama as Commander in Chief could have closed down Guantanamo Bay years ago if he really wanted. He could have also ordered the release of these alleged terrorists many of who were either in the wrong place at the wrong time or low level fighters. Instead he falsely claims that Congress is blocking him from doing any of these things as political cover. This is ridiculous considering that as President of the United States he is the man ultimately in charge of the entire military. Other than making declarations of war which is reserved for the legislative branch, these powers are well within his constitutional powers as President. He also has the power to grant pardons and could potentially pardon any of these people currently being held in Guantanamo Bay based on humanitarian reasons. It just shows what a joke Obama and his whole regime really is.
There obviously has been no mainstream discussion about how this bill authorizes the ridiculous Conflicts Record Research Center and continues the push of the government’s cyber warfare capabilities. More importantly there has been no discussion about how these cyber warfare initiatives could be directed at individuals who are opposed to the federal government in some way. By using broad language it is clear that this is intentionally done so they can at some point legally justify offensive cyber warfare operations against the American people if needed. The NDAA offers no distinction between American protesters or foreign fighters burning American flags as it pertains to their cyber warfare plans. According to the bill they are all one in the same because they are all opposed to the United States government in some form.
Read the various sections of the bill for yourself and draw your own conclusions. Obviously the aforementioned sections contained within raise some serious constitutional questions as it becomes increasingly clear that the federal government is gearing up for war both conventional and cyber against the American people.
