Good Citizen

You Must Choose Wisely
We hear a great deal about mass formation and mass psychosis these days. The psychological theories are palatable and familiar enough to be distributed amongst those who can recognize truths, associate them with our two-year nightmare and easily communicate them to others. Free floating anxiety, personal anxiety, isolation, segregation, engineered fear through propaganda for social division and control. These are all interconnected but they require greater examination for comprehending the machinations of our information age, especially the propaganda side of the equation which is really the wellspring of resultant psychological responses. The propaganda of today is not your grandmother’s propaganda.

Here one could dive into the nature of propaganda, its history and all the literary staples of propaganda studies, but in trying to convince others that what they believe to be true is actually propaganda, this methodology might be as effective as that David Foster Wallace story about fish comprehending what water is. With the ubiquitous nature of propaganda today, a life source for millions of misguided world views and beliefs, a different approach is required.

The most impressive and fascinatingly spectacular thing about propaganda today is the people trapped in its spell believe they are simply and passively engaging art, education, cinema, late night entertainment, online news and information searches and consumption. This is how the powers that be can socially engineer a catatonic state of blissful ignorance and total obedience in millions of people around the world through one series of events. Their lives are constantly controlled. Their impressions and stimuli always carefully managed. Their perception of it all is under the spell that they are freely making choices for information that haven’t already been made for them through behavioral conditioning and predictive engineering.

All of the above is related to the process of passively accepting information, rather than discerningly choosing information.The former is done for you, the latter requires a dedicated effort that results in not being a manipulated ignoramus. I don’t mean to insult you reader but this is a far more profound collective crisis than a virus, and most of the past two years does not happen if the majority out there were not lazy, passive acceptors of information.

Now that the introduction is concluding and your attention spans are fading, the impulse to depart this essay and return to your regularly scheduled programming is going to be too overwhelming soon, if I keep writing you’ll leave, another sentence and you’ll be gone…Let’s play a game!

Only one of these three options below is true. You must accept choose wisely.

A. A novel coronavirus was transmitted at wet market in Wuhan, China through a bat and an intermediary animal before infecting humans. The novel virus was first identified from an outbreak in December 2019, and attempts to contain it there failed, allowing it to spread across the globe. To protect their citizens governments across the west had to lockdown societies to keep the virus from spreading and hospitals from becoming too overwhelmed with patients. In addition to necessary lockdowns, health experts implemented other safety measures to slow the spread of the virus, including masks, social distancing and contact tracing using human and digital surveillance technologies. Thanks to scientific breakthroughs in biotechnology vaccines were quickly developed, tested and approved for mass distribution around the world. The vaccines are safe, effective and necessary to protect the health and safety of citizens, especially the most vulnerable. They should be mandatory for everyone to participate in society to protect the health of everyone else.

B. A coronavirus may have escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan, China in December of 2019, where important research on bat coronaviruses was being conducted. The virus was identified and sequenced by the Chinese government and distributed around the world for companies to begin the process of developing vaccines. Government imposed lockdowns were necessary to keep hospitals from being overwhelmed with patients. Other measures and safeguards were put in place to buy time until the vaccines could be safely tested and then approved for emergency use. Some of these measures were more effective than others but governments and policy makers did the best they could with a rapidly evolving situation. The masks turned out to not be as effective as we were told, and the vaccines not as effective or safe as they initially believed but are still a useful tool in protecting the health and safety of those who want them.

C. A lab engineered coronavirus that was not novel was intentionally released in Wuhan, China in September or October of 2019 during the world military games. The virus is a bioweapon with a deadly spike protein inserted to make it highly transmissible and toxic in humans. As it spread across the globe governments across the west coordinated harmful policies and measures that intentionally did far more harm than good and sold it to the people as necessary for their ‘health and safety’. Early effective treatments were ignored or suppressed, cases manipulated with false positive results, and for the first time in human history ‘harm’ was collectivized to retract civil liberties while the only government ‘cures’ were experimental “vaccines” already in waiting which would be forced on entire populations through human rights violating coercive measures. The entire purpose of all of it was to usher in vaccine passports so governments could have total control over their populations, whose liberties would now be contingent on them doing whatever they were told for “health and safety” and “the common good”.

And only one of these two options below is true. You must accept choose wisely. One will nurture your immunity to engineered fear and the other will nurture your immunity to common sense.

USS Liberty Survivor Interviewed About Attack and Cover Up

Posted by M. C. on June 11, 2021

Go to the link for the video.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/06/ginny-garner/uss-liberty-survivor-interviewed-about-attack-and-cover-up/

Ginny Garner

Infowars’ American Journal host Harrison Smith conducted a powerful interview with survivor Phil Tourney about the deliberate and unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967 and subsequent coverup by President Lyndon Johnson. Tourney was onboard the intelligence ship, witnessed the attack by the Israeli military, watched the murder of 34 and maiming of 174 of his fellow Navy men, and was threatened to keep quiet or else he and his fellow shipmates would be imprisoned or even killed. His account 54 years later of the brutal assault and cover up is still shocking to hear. Tourney said the attack was a false flag, a plan by the US and Israel to sink the ship, kill all aboard, and blame it on Egypt as the pretext to take over the Middle East. Anyone trying to get the truth out about this shameful tragedy has typically been smeared as an anti-Semite. To this day the cover up continues with apologists like Charlie Kirk claiming it’s a conspiracy theory to have Tourney’s view. The interview was preceded by a report Alex Jones produced many years ago on the appalling episode. Tourney highly recommended the four-part series Sacrificing Liberty he and other survivors appear in that is posted on Tru News; he describes it as a Christian outlet.

Twitter permanently bans Alex Jones, Infowars, citing abuse

Posted by M. C. on September 7, 2018

I don’t hear anything about banning governments and their minions that kill thousands of innocent civilians and bomb hospitals and school buses. Now THAT is abuse and belittlement.

Twitter: Telling you what is the truth because you are too dumb to figure it out for yourself.

https://apnews.com/2521ccbe3b5a43d68d66c21c030a7f2d/Twitter-permanently-bans-Alex-Jones,-Infowars-citing-abuse

By BARBARA ORTUTAY

NEW YORK (AP) — Twitter permanently banned right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his Infowars show for abusive behavior, a day after CEO Jack Dorsey testified before Congress about alleged bias against conservatives on the platform.

The company said Jones won’t be able to create new accounts on Twitter or take over any existing ones. In a tweet, it said it would continue to monitor reports about other accounts potentially associated with Jones or Infowars, and will “take action” if it finds any attempts to circumvent the ban.

Twitter said Jones posted a video on Wednesday that violates the company’s policy against “abusive behavior.” That video showed Jones berating CNN journalist Oliver Darcy for some 10 minutes in between two congressional hearings on social media. Dorsey testified at both hearings, but did not appear to witness the confrontation. Read the rest of this entry »

First They Came for Alex Jones

Posted by M. C. on August 21, 2018

Norris went ghost in July 2010 and has not surfaced since. Unlike her former colleagues, it is not President Trump who worries her. To become an enemy of the media is to risk one’s career, one’s freedom, even one’s life.

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/08/first_they_came_for_alex_jones.html

By Jack Cashill

This past week, the nation’s newspapers took collective umbrage at being called “the enemy of the people” by President Trump.

“That is what Nazis called Jews,” gasped the editors of the Kansas City Star.  “A form even appeared in Nazi Germany, when Jewish people were called an ‘enemy of the state,’” fretted the editors of the Topeka Capital-Journal.

These being the only two editorials I read, I have to imagine that many more of the roughly 400 protesting newsrooms engaged in some variation on the reductio ad Hitlerum theme. Even if all 400 did, no halfway sentient adult can take this self-indulgence seriously… Read the rest of this entry »

In A Corporatist System Of Government, Corporate Censorship Is State Censorship – Consortiumnews

Posted by M. C. on August 13, 2018

Once you’re assisting with the construction of the US military’s drone program, receiving grants from the CIA and NSA for mass surveillance, or having your site’s content regulated by NATO’s propaganda arm, you don’t get to pretend you’re a private, independent corporation that is separate from government power.

https://consortiumnews.com/2018/08/10/in-a-corporatist-system-of-government-corporate-censorship-is-state-censorship/

By Caitlin Johnstone

Last year, representatives of Facebook, Twitter, and Google were instructed on the US Senate floor that it is their responsibility to “quell information rebellions” and adopt a “mission statement” expressing their commitment to “prevent the fomenting of discord.”

“Civil wars don’t start with gunshots, they start with words,” the representatives were told. “America’s war with itself has already begun. We all must act now on the social media battlefield to quell information rebellions that can quickly lead to violent confrontations and easily transform us into the Divided States of America.”

Yes, this really happened.

Today Twitter has silenced three important anti-war voices on its platform: it has suspended Daniel McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute, suspended Scott Horton of the Scott Horton Show, and completely removed the account of prominent Antiwar.com writer Peter Van Buren.

Columns > America’s Burgeoning Civil War

Posted by M. C. on August 10, 2018

Maybe, maybe not. The key is to be prepared for the eventuality.

Don’t count on government or police to be your friend if the worst comes to fruition.

No matter who would have won the election in 2016, the result would have been the same. Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were groomed to take America into a civil war. Make no mistake about it: The gamemakers who control both Trump and Clinton couldn’t care less about the left-right feud taking place on Main Street today. It is the Constitution, Bill of Rights and God’s Natural Law that are targeted for destruction. And neither Donald Trump nor Maxine Waters seem to have any regard, respect or reverence for any of those sacred principles.

https://chuckbaldwinlive.com/Articles/tabid/109/ID/3774/Americas-Burgeoning-Civil-War.aspx

Make no mistake about it: America is already engaged in its second civil war. The decades-old left-right, conservative-liberal, Democrat-Republican paradigm that had (before Donald Trump’s election) almost evaporated is back—with a vengeance. In fact, it has turned into a full-fledged war. And it doesn’t matter to a tinker’s dam which side wins this war: Constitutional government and the Natural rights of man are the losers.

Take your pick. Maxine Waters or Donald Trump, Sean Hannity or Chris Matthews: Both sides are destroying the principles of federalism, constitutionalism and Natural Law. For all intents and purposes these principles are already dead. The American experiment in republicanism is over. From now on it’s the survival of the strongest. Might makes right. Logic, reason and sensible debate are buried in the dustbin of history. America has entered the next Dark Ages. And, sadly, there are hardly any Reformation preachers left in America to lead the nation into the light of liberty. Read the rest of this entry »

Alex Jones and the rise of corporate censorship | Free speech | spiked

Posted by M. C. on August 8, 2018

We live in strange times. On one hand it is fashionable to hate capitalism these days… But on the other hand we seem content to trust Silicon Valley, the new frontier in corporate power, to make moral judgements about what kind of content people should be able to see online.

http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/alex-jones-and-the-rise-of-corporate-censorship/21658#.W2npJtIzaUm

So we’re now trusting the capitalist class, massive, unaccountable corporations, to decide on our behalf what we may listen to and talk about? This is the take-home message, the terrible take-home message, of the expulsion of Alex Jones’ Infowars network from Apple, Facebook and Spotify and of the wild whoops of delight that this summary banning generated among so-called liberals: that people are now okay with allowing global capitalism to govern the public sphere and to decree what is sayable and what is unsayable. Corporate censorship, liberals’ new favourite thing – how bizarre. Read the rest of this entry »

Apple, Facebook and other tech companies delete content from Alex Jones

Posted by M. C. on August 7, 2018

Executives defend the decision not to share exactly what content violated a policy because they fear it will prompt people to test it.

Alex Jones as Josef K.

http://www.jamestownsun.com/entertainment/podcasts/4481888-apple-facebook-and-other-tech-companies-delete-content-alex-jones

By Washington Post

Major technology companies including Apple, Facebook and YouTube deleted years of content from conservative conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his Infowars platforms over allegations of hate speech, a sudden clampdown that is fueling the growing debate over how big technology companies choose to censor…

The recent actions by the technology companies also highlight the opaque nature of their decision-making, with most not publicly specifying what content by Jones violated their policies or how they decided what posts to block and which to leave online. Jones has treaded close to some definitions of hate speech for years, and it wasn’t clear from the companies if or when he finally crossed the line… Read the rest of this entry »

InfoWars Ban: CNN, Democrats Successfully Lobby Big Tech to Censor Their Critics | Breitbart

Posted by M. C. on August 7, 2018

It seems that YouTube has now come up with a solution: ban the channels that Rep. Deutch objects to.

Scoundrel Alex Jones deserves more respect than any other organization mentioned below. At least he tells you there is a war on the truth.

https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/08/06/infowars-ban-cnn-democrats-successfully-lobby-big-tech-to-censor-their-critics/

by Allum Bokhari

Big tech’s coordinated purge of InfoWars — which was hit by bans from Apple, Facebook, Spotify and YouTube in rapid succession — did not occur in a vacuum. On this issue, Silicon Valley bowed to CNN journalists and Democrat politicians who ceaselessly lobbied for the site to be censored.

It’s a sign of how the concentration of power in America has shifted from big government to big tech that politicians are now lobbying tech companies rather than the other way round, but that’s exactly what happened over the course of the past few months, as Democrats applied relentless pressure on Facebook and other Silicon Valley giants to censor InfoWars.

Chief among them was Democratic Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL), who demanded that a Facebook representative “explain” their decision not to ban InfoWars at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on social media censorship last month. Calling Jones as “well-known conspiracy theorist” whose “brand is bullying,” Deutch also demanded Google’s representative explain how many strikes it would take for a channel on Google-owned YouTube to be deleted… Read the rest of this entry »
