People, please! You were told by the mainstream media (MSM) with great clarity — that Stephen Paddock was a “lone wolf” shooter, a “creepy” guy, that had led a secretive life and clearly just wanted to shoot people at the festival.
You are to ignore all reports and videos that may conflict with this narrative, including any reports of second shooters, or that they found a military style phone charger in the hotel room. Absolutely ignore reports that Paddock may have been a CIA arms pilot in Operation Cyclone, and don’t view this video (here) that demonstrates shots were fired at the Bellagio hotel later that night.
You are told to believe white equals black. For example, the jury was told alleged Boston bomber, Dzhokhar (“Jahar”) Tsarnaev, had a black backpack — even though videos show him wearing a white-grey backpack. When the backpack was turned in as evidence, it miraculously changed colour.
(And the book (above) is Nineteen Eighty-Four, by English author George Orwell, in a library in Sydney.)
Youtube seems to be accelerating forms of censorship on a daily basis. It is the main platform that provides us visual evidence — but recently the organisation has adjusted algorithms resulting in some videos being demonetized, and placing others into a special “sandbox” status where they become difficult to find — possibly banned.
A few days ago The Guardian wrote,
“YouTube alters search algorithm over fake Las Vegas conspiracy videos… [YouTube] initially defended its performance during breaking news – but later made tweaks to better promote reputable sources... [and has] made changes to its algorithms…”
Who at YouTube is deciding as to who is reputable? And how do they determine what is fake? It seems we are at the mercy of adjusted algorithms, in addition to a deliberate plan to disseminate disinformation.
In 2000 the MSM probably had almost total control of the media space. By mid 2000s the government and the mainstream media were battling with conspiracy theories around the 9/11 attacks on New York. Too many people were waking up to the lie.
Cass Sunstein and Adrian Vermeule published a paper (17/1/2008), entitled, “Conspiracy Theories.” If essentially suggested that if you could no longer control the lie, then infiltrate the truth.
This is from the Abstract of Sunstein’s paper:
“Many millions of people hold conspiracy theories; they believe that powerful people have worked together in order to withhold the truth about some important practice or some terrible event… Those who subscribe to conspiracy theories may create serious risks, including risks of violence, and the existence of such theories raises significant challenges for policy and law.
“The first challenge is to understand the mechanisms by which conspiracy theories prosper; the second challenge is to understand how such theories might be undermined. Such theories typically spread as a result of identifiable cognitive blunders, operating in conjunction with informational and reputational influences.
“…Conspiracy theorists are not likely to be persuaded by an attempt to dispel their theories; they may even characterize that very attempt as further proof of the conspiracy. Because those who hold conspiracy theories typically suffer from a crippled epistemology, in accordance with which it is rational to hold such theories, the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups.” [my emphasis]
In other words, Sunstein was advising governments on how to keep “faking” the news.
Dr David Ray Griffin wrote the book “Cognitive Infiltration,” and distills Sunstein’s 9/11 conspiracy theory attack — exposing the provocateurs and infiltrators.
It is also wonderful to see so many sleuths dissecting these events, but it does mean we have to decipher a huge amount of information — sorting fact from disinformation. However, we first have to break our politicians from the spell.
As I said in a comment yesterday — what about we use Cognitive Govtration to infiltrate politicians with the TRUTH. What a novel concept.
I look forward to more examples in the comments, and I’ll post up a list of emails for Australian politicians.
