IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:Facebook has partnered with The Atlantic Council to ‘stop fake news and propaganda.’ This council is funded by US government agencies and massive corporations who are arms dealers and fund war and terrorism.
  • Reflect On:Given who funds this organization, does it point to the fact that Facebook is truly the one election meddling? Are the mainstream media the only ones to be trusted with election news? Think about who is controlling the narrative here.

On October 11, 2018, 58+ more pages were removed from Facebook causing yet another uproar in the ‘war’ against independent media. My inbox flooded with messages as friends and other page admins began asking me when I thought we were going to be next.

The thought crossed my mind, the day could come, but for now, we will keep building our platform off Facebook, stay grounded in our thoughts and continue producing quality, neutral, conscious media and journalism. We feel Facebook will not have any REAL excuse to come after that, but we know they don’t need an excuse per se.

After all, all of my friend’s pages were just deleted because Facebook felt they were tied to some sort of Russian/US election meddling. It’s interesting when you consider the only people meddling in the election is Facebook. Why else would they delete numerous Facebook pages which often oppose the state-controlled mainstream media?

Beyond the political pressure Facebook seems to be receiving, what actually goes on during this all-out targeted censorship? We may never know exactly, but signs point to a specific group that appears to be heavily involved in the process.

The Group That Guides Facebook Censorship

Enter The Atlantic Council (TAC)…

So who exactly are The Atlantic Council? And are they actually helping Facebook decide who to censor? Good questions. Let’s begin by looking at who funds TAC.

Here are a few donors according to TAC’s website. They include the US and foreign government agencies as well as prominent companies and figures tied to deep state activity.

HSBC Holdings plc
Rockefeller Brothers Fund
Google Inc.
Foreign & Commonwealth Office of the United Kingdom
Lockheed Martin Corporation
The Coca-Cola Company
Chevron
Bahaa Hariri (prominent Lebanese billionaire)
United States Army
United States Chamber of Commerce
United States Marine Corps
United States Navy

Below is a recent tweet from Daniel McAdams, the Executive Director, Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, outlining the funding of The Atlantic Council.

With my 11 years of research into this space, I feel as though this is the type of group responsible for controlling narratives around the world. Whitewashing wars, creating hatred between nations on the public level, and fostering narratives that lead to wars and conflict. After all, it’s funded by arms manufacturers like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing.

In other words, TAC may very well be a propaganda arm for agencies like NATO, the US Government and so forth. This would mean they work to control the narratives that come out of mainstream media to control what the public thinks and discusses. This leads to what the public will ultimately support.

According to Facebook’s newsroom, on May 17th, 2018, Facebook announced its partnership with The Atlantic Council to combat ‘fake news.’

Today, we’re excited to launch a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, which has a stellar reputation looking at innovative solutions to hard problems.

How did the mainstream media view this partnership with a council such as this? A council backed by the very billionaires and corporations independent media organizations prove fund wars, terrorism, and harm/mislead the public?…

Does TAC Really Create Propaganda? Yes!

How do we know The Atlantic Council creates propaganda themselves? Let’s look back to when Ben Nimmo, a one-time NATO press officer, and Atlantic Council board member, stated that grammar mistakes were “proof” that journalists or social media users were paid Kremlin trolls.

Ben Nimmo later went on to create a worldwide fake news story, that the mainstream media heavily ran with, calling a retired British citizen a Russian bot. The British citizen and Twitter user Ian56789 later came out on Sky News showing his real face and identity, proving Ben Nimmo was wrong about him being a Russian bot. Of course, the mainstream media didn’t go national with that story, only the fake news version.

WikiLeaks was critical of Nimmo and The Atlantic Council after that bout of propaganda.

The point here is, Facebook choosing to work with this group essentially states Facebook is becoming nothing more than a narrative controller just like the mainstream media. TAC on several occasions has created fake news stories, that went viral, about the very political narratives independent media is pointing out as false yet are being called propaganda. So who is truly creating propaganda?…
