A Wake Up Call To Everybody Here at COP

Recommended Posts

 God Man    315

We are all being played on a daily bases.  Our small community here is one of the few remaining places not influenced by nefarious outside forces.  Unlike other conspiracy web sites COP has not been infiltrated.  There is a war being waged on your mind along with the minds of your fellow Americans.  We are living in a time where propaganda is everywhere and most news is purely propaganda.   Be aware and be awake my friends.  Please read the article below.

 

Some bits and pieces from the article below:

On July 2, 2013, the United States Congress silently legalized the use of American propaganda on the American people. Until then, there had been something known as the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which prevented the government from broadcasting its propaganda aimed at foreigners within the US itself. A bipartisan amendment to the 2013 defense authorization bill undid that — and so the ban on dissemination of propaganda produced by the US State Department and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) was no more.

What’s interesting about this is that the very people in Congress who are complaining night and day about the nefarious influence of Russian propaganda actually don’t have a problem with American citizens being targeted with fake news and propaganda at all — just so long as it’s coming from their own government.

What’s more, since this amendment was tucked into the defense authorization bill with relatively little fuss being made, one can assume that journalists charged with disseminating the real news aren’t too bothered by it either.

The coverage it did receive was amusing in that journalists appeared to be completely fine with disseminating pro-US government propaganda to foreign audiences, which is precisely what they accuse Russia of doing, and which they pretend to find so uniquely heinous.

One concerned Pentagon official who spoke to BuzzFeed about the amendment said it gave the government sweeping powers to push propaganda on the American people with no oversight. He worried the government could circulate information domestically that is “entirely false.”

Where was all the sanctimonious outrage in 2011 when it was revealed the US military was developing software that would allow it to secretly manipulate social media platforms using fake personas to “influence internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda,” as reported by the Guardian at the time.

“The discovery that the US military is developing false online personalities – known to users of social media as “sockpuppets” – could also encourage other governments, private companies, and non-government organizations to do the same,” The Guardian wrote.

In 2014, the US military studied and recorded the activities of people on Twitter and other social media services to understand how influenced behavior happens on social platforms. The study, which was funded by the US Department of Defense’s military research department (Darpa) went so far as to message unknowing participants to see how they responded.

The aim was for the US military to become better at detecting online propaganda campaigns — and running its own.

We know that is hogwash thanks to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden who revealed information showing massive and wide-reaching government efforts to use social media for propaganda and disinformation. The NSA along with the British GCHQ run entire units dedicated to “discrediting” their targets online through disinformation campaigns — which include fake blog posts and emails and texts being sent to colleagues, neighbors, and friends.

Both the US and UK are aggressive in their manipulation of people through online forums — both domestically and abroad. This sparks little outrage and receives practically no coverage in comparison with the coverage that reports of Russian influence on Facebook and Twitter have received in recent weeks.

Never forget, never forget, that it was the World Wide Web, the WWW, that was set up and installed as an operation of the USA's Department of Defense (DoD). 

I am not speaking about the 'internet', there can be and are hundreds of totally isolated from each other internets -- these used be (and still are) called Wide Area Networks (WANs), a bunch of Local Area Networks (LANs) all tied together to each other.   There used to be what were called, Campus Area Networks (CANs) and their still are.  THe term "Household Area Networks (HANs) never really caught on.  Then there is the Infra-Nets.  But the WWW was set up by a Military and its Civilian Department of Defense.

Many here might not have been hearing the various propaganda radio transmissions would wide.  It may be that many of use have forgotten just what radio propaganda even sounds like.   Back in the 1958-1970s I listed to even V.O.A., Radio Free Europe, Radio Moscow, Radio Havana, Radio Peking (it was called in those days), Radio Hanoi, the BBC's transmissions, Radio Hilverstem (sp?), Radio South Africa.. the list went on and one.  

Today one can use something like this http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901 to tune in to all the World's propaganda transmissions.. but don't forget even American/Canadian/Mexican AM/FM channels... yea, your "favorite' 107.3 on your FM dial or 1010 AM on your dial can and does transmit, propaganda.  Many too we have been lock in to TV, Cable TV, and "the Internet" channels like YouTube, Vimeo, etc and forgotten the much older form of propaganda, Radio. 

Maybe something to consider.
