The censorship trend

Here are 8 current articles from reclaimthenet.org.

ONE: “Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the government is investing in new tools for security agencies to fight extremism and online ‘misinformation’.”

TWO: “Poland’s Andrzej Duda this week met with YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki in Belweder and talked about reducing ‘misinformation,’ on the YouTube platform – particularly when it comes to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.”

THREE: “…several studies refute the ‘video game’ narrative. In 2019, a study by Oxford University concluded that ‘violent video game engagement is not associated with adolescents’ aggressive behavior,’ and it was also noted that countries where more time is spent on video games than the US, such as Japan, don’t have increased violence.”

“However, the notion that games can be blamed for violence has increased calls for online censorship.”

FOUR: “The Turkish government introduced a new law in parliament that will give the government more control over the internet. The law was drafted by President’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) and its ally the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).”

“The law, which is expected to pass, will punish ‘spreading misinformation on purpose.’ It prohibits publicly spreading ‘false information regarding internal and external security, public order and the general health of the country, in a way that is suitable for disturbing the public peace, simply for the purpose of creating anxiety, fear or panic among the people’.”

“The punishment for intentionally spreading ‘false information’ will be one to three years in prison. If the court finds that a person spread false information as part of an organization that is illegal, the sentence will be doubled.”

“Journalists might also be arrested under the new law for hiding sources who gave them ‘false information’.”

FIVE: “During a World Economic Forum ‘Freedom of the Press Panel’ on Thursday, journalists and rights group heads complained about the way social media has allowed anyone to speak without ‘journalistic accountability’ and called for social media companies to be held accountable when their algorithms promote ‘rumors,’ ‘falsehoods,’ ‘hate speech,’ and ‘divisiveness’.”

SIX: “…more censorship on Facebook and Instagram, affecting posts by Media Research Center (MRC) 27 times within one month earlier in 2022. Both [Facebook and Instagram] have labeled this content as ‘missing context,’ which could therefore be ‘misleading’.”

“The majority of MRC posts claim that the US no longer has energy independence thanks to the fact it is increasingly relying on imported oil, and mention Biden as the one to blame.”

SEVEN: “Sweden’s Psychological Defence Agency was launched in January. Its efforts include training thousands of public officials on how to respond to false information and working with social media companies to reduce its spread. When it launched, the head of the agency, Henrik Landerholm, insisted that it’s ‘not the Ministry of Truth or a State Information Board like we had during the Cold War’.”

EIGHT: “At the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting for 2022, an event where powerful CEOs and world leaders meet to ‘find solutions to the world’s most urgent challenges,’ YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki committed to persistent censorship of ‘misinformation’ and praised YouTube’s existing censorship efforts.”

These 8 pieces are a drop in the censorship bucket.

COVID lunacy alerted the world population to official disinformation in a way that no other issue has. All sorts of walls came down. This has spurred officialdom to accelerate its efforts to eradicate opinion and information it opposes and fears and hates.

They want to put the walls back up.

That is harder and more transparently criminal than building them in the first place.

Tik Tok Rolling Stone Nanny State—Johnny Depp, Amber Heard defamation lawsuit

by Jon Rappoport

May 18, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

Censorship on parade. Because we must be protected from dangerous content.

At infowars, Paul Watson has the story:

“TikTok censored numerous viral videos alleging inconsistencies in Amber Heard’s testimony after the platform was contacted by Rolling Stone magazine.”

“…seemingly keen to stop the spread of embarrassing viral videos which portrayed Heard in a bad light, Rolling Stone contacted the platform complaining that the videos ‘glorified violence or suffering’.”

“One of the videos in question, which was later deleted by TikTok, featured two cats playing the roles of Heard and Depp.”

“’In the video, Heard’s testimony is reenacted by a cat in a blond wig, with the same cat in a black wig and a Pirates of The Caribbean bandana playing Johnny Depp,’ reports Reclaim the Net. ‘When the video starts, the cat playing Heard is lightly slapped using a finger’.”

“TikTok removed several videos it was alerted to by Rolling Stone journalists, claiming they violated the platforms policies against bullying and harassment, which does not allow ‘content that disparages victims of violent tragedies’.”

Excuse me, but the whole point of the court case is deciding WHETHER THERE WAS A VICTIM OF A VIOLENT TRAGEDY.

This is not ASSUMED, prior to the trial.

Apparently, Tik Tok missed that point.

Or possibly they and Rolling Stone have already adjudicated the case and I missed the memo.

There is also the issue of how dangerous two video cats playing Johnny and Amber actually are.

But PRIOR assumption/adjudication is the Big One, because these days, that is the preferred method of analysis. “We know what the outcome should be, so we don’t have to waste time getting to it.”

Depp and Heard and their incompetent lawyers made a stupid mistake. Rather than filing a case with a court, they should have gone directly to Rolling Stone and Tik Tok to make a ruling about the violent tragedy.

According to the same logic, independent journalists should send their articles to the new Government Disinformation Board before publishing them.

I could have saved two years and over 475 articles about the COVID fraud, by simply making proper inquiries, prior to posting. Actually, prior to writing.

“Dear Sirs and Madams and Other Genders: Here is a list of conclusions I’m making about COVID. Please let me know whether I should allow any of them to see the light of day. Your faithful servant…”

Bottom line: If you or I are considering making any statement about a favored class of purported victims, regardless of circumstances or context, we should consult a preferred authority first. To see whether we are disturbing an ongoing AGENDA.

Agenda=Truth.

As we all know.

And once we do know, we can couch our remarks in a way that endears us to everyone else who also knows, up front, what the outcome of a given event ought to be.

It’s a simple way to do business and succeed in the marketplace of ideas.

Closed ideas.

Spotify must remove all liberals from its platform; the obvious solution to the Joe Rogan blow-up

by Jon Rappoport

February 10, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

I keep solving these thorny problems. I really should get paid for the work.

In this case, I need to define “liberal.” It’s anyone who wants to censor free speech. Simple.

Spotify needs to issue a statement to its contracted contributors: “You have 48 hours to tell us whether you favor censoring free speech. If you do favor that policy, we’re cutting you loose. You’re a menace. If you claim you stand for free speech, but later prove, by word or action, that you’re lying, we’ll cut you loose and find some ground to sue you.”

Right away, the Joe Rogan problem disappears. The wrangle with Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and other liberals who want Rogan banned is over. Spotify offloads those two aging singers.

Then to prove they mean business, Spotify creates special sections of content. For example, the Holocaust archive. This is for commentators who assert the Holocaust never happened, Hitler was a genius and a prophet of salvation, and the Jews run the world.

Then you have another section for pundits who claim Trump IS Hitler, he was foiled from declaring martial law and enlisting the Army to put all minorities into concentration camps, and he came close to destroying the reliable trusted news networks.

Here’s one more section. This is a mixed bag. People argue that white people are devils, the ills of American society all stem from systemic racism, while others claim black people are born with lower IQ’s than white people, and selling and buying slaves in Africa was widespread before the white man ever showed up, etc.

Then Spotify stands back and waits.

And nothing happens.

Except a hurricane on social media, in the press, and in the halls of government bloviation. Otherwise, people go about their lives.

Free speech is confirmed as a non-threat to the safety and security of the nation.

We have to deal with a special case of free speech: “COVID misinformation.” Because here the charge is: allowing people to contradict the official party line AUTOMATICALLY puts all our lives in danger: the ranks of vaccine refusers grow; living unvaccinated out in the open, without masks, gathering in large groups spreads the “deadly virus.”

So Spotify hosts a free live-streamed event for the world audience. A six-month every-day all-day discussion from ALL quarters. Government scientists, dissenting scientists, vaxxers, anti-vaxxers, semi-vaxxers, WHO/CDC reps, Constitutional lawyers, mainstream reporters, independent reporters, Fauci, Gates, Rand Paul, Scott Atlas, etc.

The question under discussion: IS THE GOVERNMENT COVID POLICY EFECTIVE?

Air it out. Air it all out.

Let the chips fall where they may.

If governments can launch a global open-air clinical trial of an experimental RNA vaccine, involving 8 billion people, in order to see what happens, then Spotify can host a continuous demonstration of free speech about COVID—and we can see what happens.

Open the doors, open the windows, let people speak.

Run the experiment.

It’s no mystery. The promotion of censorship is based on fear. The inducement of puddling and huddling fear of what will happen if “we” allow the 1st Amendment to stand.

Here’s another great idea. I’m just giving away these ideas to Spotify for nothing. The platform hosts an event called META-FEAR. This one features a full spectrum of speakers who claim, or reject the notion, that free speech has, in fact, directly incited criminal violence.

Why is this event necessary? Because AFTER Spotify breaks out the massive free-speech campaign I’ve described above, the government will surely come in behind that and claim the consequences HAVE BEEN awful and tragic. They always play that card. “Freedom is a threat to our free way of life.”

At the META-FEAR event, the Department of Homeland Security can step up and sprinkle the air with vague generalizations about “elevated terrorism threats” stemming from “online misinformation inciting violent anti-government groups.” And other speakers can demand specifics and offer counter-narratives.

I would certainly put my two cents in: You guys at Homeland Security HAVE TO invent dire threats to the nation. If you don’t, you have no reason to hold down your jobs and collect your paychecks. If you say, “Well, another week has just gone by and nothing happened,” you’re in trouble.

At the META-FEAR event, you DHS guys will also need to explain why you feature certain types of threat warnings and ignore other types. Do you have a list of protected terrorist groups? Do you have a list of other groups who aren’t threatening anybody—but you’re pretending they are?

Well, this wraps up my business plan for rescuing Spotify. I hereby give permission for other elite platforms to deploy it as well.

In lieu of paying my usual fee of one billion dollars, you can make a donation to the Canadian truckers.

And remember what someone way back there said. It still applies today: Censorship of the people, by the people, for the people is an idea whose time has come, if you’re a complete idiot.

Neil Young and Joni Mitchell: mental midgets

by Jon Rappoport

January 31, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

COVID psychosis is a state of mind in which sufferers believe what doctors are telling them.

And what doctors are telling them justifies all the restrictions and mandates—and the need to censor and cancel those who ignore and disagree with the doctors.

Official doctors promoted by the government and major media are doing the gross forms of hypnosis; and lesser doctors are working the same street with modifications of the official messages.

Official doctors: “Vaccinate everybody. Give them as many boosters as necessary.”

Lesser doctors: “We shouldn’t vaccinate children. And no more than three booster for anyone.”

Mental midgets Neil Young and Joni Mitchell are pulling their music from Spotify, because Joe Rogan, whose Spotify podcast draws in 11 million people, criticizes the party line on COVID.

Free speech no longer means anything to Young and Mitchell. They’re tuned in nice and tight to the official doctors.

These two goofs have bought the whole enchilada.

And it’s a chance to stand out front and wave flags and urge their troops forward.

They’re actually urging the government forward. They’re on the side of big government and big corporations and especially drug companies and elite foundations and all sorts of petty little would-be fascists who want their day in the sun.

They’re civilian Fauci’s.

Celebs for repression.

One aspect of medical hypnosis is the phrase: THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT. As in: My God, it’s a pandemic, all bets are off.

Young and Mitchell actually believe all the horseshit being shoveled into their brains about the virus and the spread and the testing and the contact tracing and the quarantining and the lockdowns and the “safe and effective” vaccine—which add up to the absolute need for a State of Emergency and the need to wipe out anyone who doesn’t believe there is an emergency.

Because their basic educations were so thin to begin with, the Young-Mitchell duo have never been able to THINK about the fact that free speech is NEVER overridden, no matter what the current crisis might be. They never got that lesson in school. They’re idiots.

And as far as “the science” is concerned, they’re so dumb and incurious, they can’t even recognize the possibility that unofficial scientific FACTS might contradict official lies.

The two of them are regular dyed-in-the-wool knee-jerk liberals, acting as operatives for big government, because liberals (who’ve turned into weirdly shaped “radicals”) have taken over the machinery of the government. They own it. So whatever it wants, these two jokers want.

If back in the old days, Young and Mitchell whined and yakked and sang about freedom, that’s gone. That’s off the table. That was always a pretense. They don’t know what freedom is. They’re cherry-pickers. They take what they want from freedom and throw the rest in the garbage.

They can’t take the heat of competition and debate and strong opinion, so they just insist on canceling it. They’re chicken-shits.

No guts, no glory.

If they had a few active brain cells to rub together, they’d say, “We disagree with everything Joe Rogan says about COVID. We think he’s dead wrong. But because of a little thing called the First Amendment, the idea of censoring him or removing him from Spotify is grotesque…”

They can’t do it. They don’t have what it takes.

I wouldn’t pay a nickel to listen to their music on any platform. I wouldn’t listen to it if they paid me.

Vaccine Airlines, Jewish Airlines, Islamic Airlines

by Jon Rappoport

February 5, 2021

(To join our email list, click here.)

In this article, I present four brief conversations—-

ONE: “Hello, Vaccine Airlines. What is your destination?”

“I’m flying from Newark to Chicago.”

“Have you received the COVID-19 vaccine?”

“Of course.”

“Can you prove it?”

“How would I do that?”

“Do you have the Stasi App on your cell phone?”

“No.”

“I’m sorry. Until you do, and it indicates you’re vaccinated, you can’t fly with us.”

“I just want to buy your product.”

“Impossible. You must satisfy certain conditions before we allow you to buy it.”

TWO: Hello, Jewish Airlines. What is your destination?”

“I’m flying from Miami to New Orleans.”

“Are you Jewish?”

“Of course.”

“Can you prove it?”

“How would I do that?”

“You need the Moses App on your cell phone.”

“I don’t have a cell phone.”

“Then, as far as we’re concerned, you aren’t Jewish. You can’t fly with us.”

THREE: “Hello, Islamic Airlines. What is your destination?”

“I’m flying from New York to Cincinnati.”

“Do you practice the Islamic Faith?”

“Sure.”

“Can you prove it? We have a Central Registry. They do background checks.”

“You won’t take my word?”

“No.”

FOUR: “This is ridiculous. Vaccination isn’t in the same category as religious membership.”

“If I offered to show you evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine is ineffective and dangerous, would you examine that evidence?”

“Of course not.”

“Why not?”

“Because, first of all, social media are censoring that kind of ‘information,’ so I know it’s bogus. And second, all experts agree that vaccination is greatest medical discovery in history.”

“What if they’re wrong?”

“They can’t be wrong.”

“Why not?”

“Because if they were, Reality itself would be turned upside down, and we would all be living in some kind of fantasy.”

“That’s your bottom line?”

“Yes.”

There is another carrier called Trans Airlines. They only allow transgender persons to fly, but that is a much longer conversation, and I leave it to you to write it…

Keep this in mind. Months ago, the US Department of Health and Human Services issued a declaration stating that NO LIABILITY could be attached to any person who participates in medical counter-measures against SARS-CoV-2 [1] [2]. Therefore, it appears that, if a person takes the COVID vaccine, in order to fly (given airlines’ emerging demands), and suffers grave injury or dies from the shot, there will be no legal recourse.

The exception is a new “COVID vaccine court” set up by the federal government [3]. The complaining party pleads his case before a panel. However, I assume that convincing these judges a loved one died as a result of the vaccine, and not “another underlying condition,” will be a very tall mountain to climb.

Here is one more conversation that might interest you:

“Hello, Vaccine Airlines. What is your destination?”

“I want to book a flight, but I’m not taking the COVID vaccine. I’d like to speak with a person who’ll listen to my reasons for turning down the shot.”

“Certainly. Just a moment. I’ll transfer your call.”

“Hello, I’m Agent Martin, FBI Division of Domestic Terrorism. This call is being recorded. How can I help you?”

MANY THANKS FOR THE EXCEEDING GENEROSITY AND EXPERT HELP OF INFOWARS.COM AND ALEX JONES: MY BLOG IS UP AND RUNNING AGAIN.

The WordPress establishment did not given me a specific reason for taking the blog down two months ago, and they played no part in restoring it. Therefore, they remain a bastion of censorship.

Thanks to you all for your support during this period.


Note: If you are a blogger and have linked to articles of mine in the past and you wish to fix the broken links…

Then, in the articles of mine that you’ve linked to, simply replace…

…the “https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com” part…

…with “https://blog.nomorefakenews.com”.

TO:

https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2019/04/15/toxic-aluminum-in-vaccines/


The only way censors find a sense of power is by closing other people down. That’s their work, and that’s their life. It’s truly pathetic. Their biggest fear is FREEDOM. They react to it as the vampire does to sunlight.

The rest of us grow through freedom.

Anti-vaxx people are really Russian bots

by Jon Rappoport

August 27, 2018

(To join our email list, click here.)

Well, well. The virulently pro-vax forces have just discovered their opponents are really, wait for it, Russian bots, launched to promote societal discord and polarize conflict.

That settles it. Nothing to see, move along. The arguments rejecting vaccine safety and efficacy were just bot-nonsense. No need to understand what they were saying. It was all a sham. Vaccines are wonderful. Everybody knows that.

On California Senator Richard Pan’s website—Pan sponsored the mandatory childhood vaccination bill in CA that became law—we find this:

“Dr. Richard Pan, a pediatrician and state senator representing the Sacramento region, responded to the study, ‘Weaponized Health Communication: Twitter and Russian Trolls Amplify the Vaccine Debate’, published in the American Journal of Public Health.”

[Senator Pan states] “This research provides evidence that foreign and domestic agents are manipulating social media through bots to discourage vaccination to promote their own agendas; Russian trolls for sowing political discord and commercial and malware distributors for marketing. In addition, the researchers concluded that a significant proportion of anti-vaccination messages are organized ‘astroturf.’ Manipulation of social media to promote anti-vaccine messages by outside agents poses a serious threat to the health and safety of Americans…”

The devious implication? There is no serious anti-vaccine research, it’s all bots and Russians.

I know at least a dozen serious independent vaccine researchers who have found huge holes in conventional vaccine mythology—but guess what? It turns out they’re non-human bots. Who knew I was sitting having coffee with a bot? Wow. Amazing what you learn when you listen to Authorities.

Senator Pan is pushing the envelope by sponsoring a new bill in the CA senate. Here is what I recently wrote about that:

California used to be trumpeted as the cutting edge of American culture.

It still is, except the culture is now all about censoring free speech.

California Senator Richard Pan, who was behind the infamous 2015 law mandating vaccinations for schoolchildren (SB277), has stepped up to the plate and introduced another bill.

This one would clamp down on criticism of ANY Official Story.

The bill is titled “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.”

It targets social media based in California. But as you read the bill, you see it appears to define social media as any Internet blog, website, or communication.

SB1424 is brief. Read it:

This bill would require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information.

(a) Any person who operates a social media Internet Web site with physical presence in California shall develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Internet Web site.

(b) The strategic plan shall include, but is not limited to, all of the following:

(1) A plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories.

(2) The utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories.

(3) Providing outreach to social media users regarding news stories containing false information.

(4) Placing a warning on a news story containing false information.

(c) As used in this section, “social media” means an electronic service or account, or electronic content, including, but not limited to, videos, still photographs, blogs, video blogs, podcasts, instant and text messages, email, online services or accounts, or Internet Web site profiles or locations.

Getting the picture?

It’s a free speech killer.

If it passes, agencies of the California government will develop numerous regulations for enforcement, including penalties for “speech criminals.”

Saying this bill violates the 1st Amendment of the Constitution is a vast understatement. The last time I looked, the Founders mentioned nothing about fact checkers or warnings attached to speech.

Can we look forward to this?

“Open borders and a flood of immigration into California are destructive to—wait. My statement has been precluded by warnings and fact-checker overrides…”

Or: “VACCINES ARE DANGEROUS. Ahem, I am making a debatable assertion and I must warn you that official experts strenuously disagree with me, and furthermore, the California Fact Checkers United, a division of Merck-Snopes Thought Police, has determined that my assertion is groundless and harmful to children’s health…”

There needs to be a relentless tsunami of protest in California over this Orwellian bill. I know of a number of Internet news operations in the state. They must jump in and lead the way.

In case you believe there are too many websites and blogs based in California to enforce a new draconian law, let me explain how the game works. Behind closed doors, the state government would decide to focus on a few big issues. For example, gun control, vaccines, and immigration. Enforcement agencies would go after the biggest Internet operations expressing politically unacceptable points of view on those subjects. At first. A spread of smaller operations would feel the heat later.

So-called fact checkers would come from government supported groups who agree with Official Positions. In other words, they wouldn’t be fact checkers at all. They would be prime news fakers.

When it comes to the issue of vaccines, for example, they would cite the notoriously biased “experts” at the Centers for Disease Control, never mentioning that the CDC buys and sells $4 billion of vaccines a year.

If, 10 or 15 years ago, someone told you a bill like SB1424 was going to come before a state legislature for a vote, you would have thought you were listening to a Hollywood pitch for a sci-fi movie script.

But now it’s real. It’s here. Believe it.

CRUSH IT.

Censorship and the decline of civilization

by Jon Rappoport

August 27, 2018

(To join our email list, click here.)

—We can understand why leaders and rulers want to censor certain ideas and views. But why do large chunks of the citizenry want to go along with it? How do you comprehend their ignorance?

Censorship is made possible when the majority of people live by what they like and don’t like—“I like this, I don’t like him, I like her, I don’t like them…”

When those preferences become the paramount elements of life, then censorship is a minor concern. Grasping the essence of the 1st Amendment and free speech requires a different level of mind. It requires defending free speech for those one doesn’t like. Such an idea is entirely foreign to the person who asserts: “WHY WOULD I POSSIBLY CARE ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF SOMEONE I DON’T LIKE?”

Exactly. That’s what separates a political moron from an aware citizen.

There are now large numbers of people who think they’re making a political advance, even a breakthrough, by demanding the censorship of those individuals they don’t like, when in fact, they’re moving backwards into a more primitive political climate.

There is another vital factor which permits people to register no objection to censorship. The factor is: vast frustration with their own lives. This is usually concealed, as if it were a secret not to be shared. The frustration, at the core, has to do with a perceived lack of freedom.

In which case, the actions of life take on a mechanical character, which becomes the heavy cover, the lid over the flame of frustration—and in that state of being, a person actually wants others who speak out and go against the grain to be silenced and censored.

Stop him! Keep him from speaking and writing!

Yes, keep the free individual from reminding the mechanical liver of life that he is not free.

The Mechanical Person wants to bury all signals that carry a flavor of originality. He wants the constant hum that tells him routine and repetition are firmly in place as the guidance system of existence.

The Mechanical Person often goes to work for a Destroyer—as I described in a poem I wrote in 1962, published in The Massachusetts Review (1966):

Burned flowers of the field
My noon is over, growing old,
Everything I love is finally sold;
Sewed designs for men with money
Thinking it was duty,
To watch them lead the world to war
From my little field of beauty.

Interesting that, 20 years later, one of the first pieces I wrote as a journalist involved PR man Bill Perry, who quit his plum job at Lawrence Livermore Labs, where they design nuclear weapons. One day, Perry told me, a researcher was complaining to him about the need for more budget money, and Bill said, “We already have enough weapons to blow up the whole world four times, why do you need more money?” To which the scientist replied: “You don’t understand. This is a PHYSICS PROBLEM.”

Yes it is, in the frozen rigid river of anti-life…

Where rebels are just machines that need to be turned off.

Breaking: Infowars and Natural News under attack

Breaking: Infowars and Natural News under attack

by Jon Rappoport

February 22, 2017

(Update: Part-2 here)

Alex Jones’ infowars.com and Mike Adams’ naturalnews.com are both under attack.

Infowars has been dropped by its ad platform provider — adroll.com, which spreads ads for Infowars products to many, many media outlets. Last year, that ad operation accounted for more than $3 million in sales for Infowars.

Natural News has been “delisted” by Google. Google appears to have wiped out 140,000 pages of listings for Mike’s website. I just typed in “natural news” at Google and what came up was something different, natural.news — another tiny site owned by Mike, not naturalnews.com, as the top listing.

The Empire is striking back. This isn’t debate or discussion or even baseless accusation. This is war by attrition. And censorship.

This is part of the elite mantra: if we don’t like it, wipe it out.

If you’ve been awake for the past year, you’ve seen an escalation, along many fronts, of the so-called “Progressive” forces to censor what they don’t want to read or hear.

It’s taken a new turn. They want to take down key independent media outlets.

They want to narrow down the “information superhighway” to a one-lane road that runs directly into their headquarters, where all the big-time fake news is dispensed, every day, to the hypnotized masses.

Don’t let them win. At the very least, take the independent news you judge is vitally important and spread it out far and wide.

Finally, for now, a message to those individuals who, by work and sweat and intelligence, by their own efforts, have built and created independent news sites:

WHATEVER DIFFERENCES YOU MAY HAVE HAD, FROM TIME TO TIME, WITH ONE ANOTHER, THIS IS BIGGER THAN THAT. MUCH BIGGER. THIS IS ABOUT CENSORSHIP OF FREE SPEECH. THIS IS ABOUT A WAR AGAINST THE FREEDOMS WE HOLD DEAR, THE FREEDOMS THAT MEAN THE MOST WHEN THEY ARE UNDER ATTACK. DEFEND EACH OTHER.

Google/Facebook now targeting “fake news sites; I’ve been doing it for 15 years

Google/FB target fake news sites: I’ve been doing it for 15 years

by Jon Rappoport

November 16, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

Only I’ve been doing it for real, here at NoMoreFakeNews.com. That’s the difference. Google and Facebook are up to something else. They’re attacking truth emanating from the alt media.

It’s a reverse play on their part. Google will refuse to allow “fake sites” to use their AdSense Program. FB will try to limit “fake” posts.

They’re really getting desperate.

Major media election coverage was so phony it was laughable. Inside their bubble, Hillary was winging her way to victory. She was way out ahead in the polls. Wikileaks and Project Veritas were spooling out devastating revelations almost every day, and the press was studiously ignoring the implications. Why don’t FB and Google go after the NY Times and WaPo and CBS and NBC and ABC and CNN and FOX, if they want to limit fake news? Why? Because all those jokers, including Google/FB, are on the same page. They’re all PR firms fronting for the concoction called Globalism.

And they’re losing.

In mainstream news, everything should begin with the concept of a staged event.

Every television newscast: staged reality

“The news is all about manipulating the context of stories. The thinner the context, the thinner the mind must become to accept it. If you want to visualize this, imagine a rectangular solid. The news covers the top surface. Therefore, the mind is trained to work in only two dimensions. Then it can’t fathom depth, and it certainly can’t appreciate the fact that the whole rectangular solid moves through time, the fourth dimension.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Focus on the network evening news. This is where the staging is done well.

First, we have the image itself, the colors in foreground and background, the blend of restful and charged hues. The anchor and his/her smooth style.

Then we have the shifting of venue from the studio to reporters in the field, demonstrating the reach of coverage: the planet. As if this equals authenticity.

Actually, those reporters in the field rarely dig up information on location. A correspondent standing on a rooftop in Cairo could just as well be positioned in a bathroom in a Las Vegas McDonald’s. His report would be identical.

The managing editor, usually the elite news anchor, chooses the stories to cover and has the final word on their sequence.

The anchor goes on the air: “Our top story tonight, more signs of gridlock today on Capitol Hill, as legislators walked out of a session on federal budget negotiations…”

The viewer fills in the context for the story: “Oh yes, the government. Gridlock is bad. Just like traffic on the I-5. A bad thing. We want the government to get something done, but they’re not. These people are always arguing with each other. They don’t agree. They’re in conflict. Yes, conflict, just like on the cop shows.”

The anchor: “The Chinese government reports the new flu epidemic has spread to three provinces. Forty-two people have already died, and nearly a hundred are hospitalized…”

The viewer again supplies context, such as it is: “Flu. Dangerous. Epidemic. Could it arrive here? Get my flu shot.”

The anchor: “A new university study states that gun owners often stock up on weapons and ammunition…”

The viewer: “People with guns. Why do they need a dozen weapons? I don’t need a gun. The police have guns. Could I kill somebody if he broke into the house?”

The anchor: “Doctors at Yale University have made a discovery that could lead to new treatments in the battle against autism…”

Viewer: “That would be good. More research. Laboratory. The brain.”

If, at the end of the newscast, the viewer bothered to review the stories and his own reactions to them, he would realize he’d learned nothing. But reflection is not the game.

In fact, the flow of the news stories has washed over him and created very little except a sense of (false) continuity.

It would never occur to him to wonder: are the squabbling political legislators really two branches of the same Party? Does government have the Constitutional right to incur this much debt? Where is all that money coming from? Taxes? Other sources? Who invents money?

Is the flu dangerous for most people? If not, why not? Do governments overstate case numbers? How do they actually test patients for the flu? Are the tests accurate? Are they just trying to convince us to get vaccines?

What happens when the government has overwhelming force and citizens have no guns?

When researchers keep saying “may” and “could,” does that mean they’ve actually discovered something useful about autism, or are they just hyping their own work and trying to get funding for their next project?

These are only a few of the many questions the typical viewer never considers.

Therefore, every story on the news broadcast achieves the goal of keeping the context thin—night after night, year after year. The overall effect of this staging is small viewer, small viewer’s mind, small viewer’s understanding.

Next we come to words over pictures. More and more, news broadcasts are using the rudimentary film technique of a voice narrating what the viewer is seeing on the screen.

People are shouting and running and falling in a street. The anchor or a field reporter says: “The country is in turmoil. Parliament has suspended sessions for the third day in a row, as the government decides what to do about uprisings aimed at forcing democratic elections…”

Well, the voice must be right, because we’re seeing the pictures. If the voice said the riots were due to garbage-pickup cancellations, the viewer would believe that, too.

We see Building #7 of the WTC collapse. Must have been the result of a fire. The anchor tells us so. Words over pictures.

We see footage of Lee Harvey Oswald inside the Dallas police station. The anchor tells he’s about to be transferred, under heavy guard, to another location. Oswald must be guilty, because we’re seeing him in a police station, and the anchor just said “under heavy guard.”

Staged news.

It mirrors what the human mind, in an infantile state, is always doing: looking at the world and seeking a brief summary to explain what that world is, at any given moment.

Since the dawn of time, untold billions of people have been urging a “television anchor” to “explain the pictures.”

The news gives them that precise thing, that precise solution, every night.

“Well, Mr. Jones,” the doctor says, as he pins X-rays to a screen in his office. “See this? Right here? We’ll need to start chemo immediately, and then we may have to remove most of your brain, and as a follow-up, take out one eye.”

Sure, why not? The patient saw the pictures and the anchor explained them.

After watching and listening to a month or two of news planted with key words, the population is ready to see the President or one of his minions step up to a microphone and say, “Quantitative easing…sequester…”

Reaction? “Oh, yes, that’s right, I’ve heard those words before. Good.”

A month later, those two terms disappear, as if they’d never existed.

Eventually, people get the idea and do it for themselves. They see things, they invent one-liners to explain them.

They’re their own anchors. They short-cut and undermine their own experience with vapid summaries of what it all means.

And then, of course, when the news cuts to commercial, the fake products take over:

“Well, every night they’re showing the same brand names, so those brands must be better than the unnamed alternatives.”

Which devolves into: “I like this commercial better than that commercial. This is a great commercial. Let’s have a contest and vote on the best commercial.”

For “intelligent” viewers, there is another sober mainstream choice, a safety valve: PBS. That newscast tends to show more pictures from foreign lands.

“Yes, I watch PBS because they understand the planet is interconnected. It isn’t just about America. That’s good.”

Sure it’s good, if you want the same thin-context or false-context reporting on events in other countries. Instead of the two minutes NBC might give you about momentous happenings in Iraq, PBS will give you four minutes, plus congenial experts commenting abstractly, employing longer words.

PBS’ experts seem kinder and gentler. “They’re nice and they’re more relaxed. I like that.”

Yes, the PBS experts are taking Valium, and they’re not drinking as much coffee as the CBS experts.

Anchors deliver the long con every night on the tube, between commercials.

Staged.

They’re marketing thin context.

And of course, the “science” promoted on the network news is also derived from marketing efforts at major government agencies, such as the CDC.

The anchor says, “Medical experts are now taking a heavier approach to parents who refuse to vaccinate their children and deny the benefits of vaccines.”

What sits behind that statement?

The announcement of so-called epidemics and outbreaks are part of a strategy for marketing vaccines. It’s obvious.

For example, read this from the World Health Organization Fact Sheet, Number 11, dated March 2014:

“Influenza occurs globally…Worldwide, these annual epidemics are estimated to result in about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness, and about 250 000 to 500 000 deaths.”

Now consider a “measles outbreak” in the US. 150 cases.

In the matter of worldwide flu, WHO and the CDC choose not to hype and propagandize; but in the case of the measles, it’s suddenly all hands on deck and fear, fear, fear.

Why?

Because it’s time. It’s time to inflate the seriousness of a standard childhood disease. It’s time to focus on “the children.” It’s time, once again, to offset the massive rebellion against vaccination exploding in the US population. It’s time to engender fear. It’s time to attack anti-vaccination researchers. It’s time to take another step in the direction of mandating vaccines. It’s time to introduce bills in legislatures that cancel legal exemptions from vaccines and cancel freedom of choice. It’s time for more medical fascism. It’s time to paint parents who don’t vaccinate as terrorists. It’s time to paint their children as little biowar weapons running loose in the community.

It’s time to advance the medical police state.


power outside the matrix


The designation of “outbreaks” and “epidemics” is arbitrary. “We’ll take THIS as an epidemic and we’ll ignore THAT as an epidemic.”

It’s very much like marketing, because it is marketing.

“Let’s see, Bob. Which one of the items in our sales catalog should we push hard this quarter? The bikini or the leather boots?”

“You know, we haven’t hyped the measles vaccine for a while. How about an outbreak of measles? Can we sell that? Focus on the kiddies? We’ll need about 100 cases, we’ll say they all came from one source, like a playground or an amusement park, and we’ll claim it’s very, very serious…”

“Do we have a good front man to go on television and promote the fear factor? How about that maniac who thinks any kid can handle 10,000 vaccines? Or the schmuck from UCLA. Maybe a woman doctor, a mother with three kids. You know, soapy dopey.”

When the propaganda pros decide which way to go…they issue a statement, a press release, and this release is picked up by the news shows:

“Medical experts are criticizing parents who refuse to vaccinate their children and deny the proven benefits of vaccines.”

There are various forms of mind control. The one I’m describing here—the thinning of context—is universal. It confounds the mind by pretending depth doesn’t exist and is merely a fantasy.

The mind, before it is trained away from it, is always interested in depth.

Another way of putting it: the mind naturally wants more space, not less. Only constant conditioning can change this.

Eventually, when you say “mind,” people think you’re referring to the brain, or they don’t know what you’re talking about at all.

Mind control by eradicating the concept of mind. That’s quite a trick.
