Through several international broadcasting operations, the mainstream media is a wing of global government propaganda. Its also an integral part of divide and rule. The current framework’s use of the media is one part of “planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to foreign audiences to influence the emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of foreign governments, organizations, groups, and individuals”. That’s reasoning behind the false narratives around the world.
The CIA, whose roots tie to the Vatican and the military industrial complex dating just after the end of World War II and the formation of the United Nations, is one wing of the world propaganda machine. Recently it was reported the U.S. pentagon spends about $4 billion dollars annually to “sway public opinion.” Shortly after the CIA became official in the lat 1940s it started a propaganda campaign known as Operation Mockingbird.
Interestingly, the Mockingbird is part of a group of birds known as New World passerine birds. Some types of mockingbirds are “known to lay “alien eggs”, or eggs that are lain in another bird’s nest. The mockingbirds’ offspring will force the other nest inhabitants from the nest, taking all the food from the parents and forcing the foster-parents to rear and fledge them”.
Operation Mockingbird has a history of covertly issuing propaganda by using the media while also funding student and cultural organizations, while also using media such as magazines as propaganda fronts. Universities and institutions are also a primary tool used in techniques ranging from indoctrination to false facts and statistics. Those tactics are still used today and exist in many forms including corporate media. Climate change is a great example of global clandestine propaganda. The “Climate Change” agenda is something far different than the concern of man made global warming and contains almost no truth. Organizations like NGOs and Social movements receive grants and money to push global agendas while no money exists for the other side of the topics.
The current issues involving Russia is another example of government propaganda today. The false narrative of the situation in Syria is a prime example. The tactics with Russia date back to the Cold War and the Soviet Union. The FBI’s COINTELPRO arm has a history of soliciting journalists to produce fake news items. This is common throughout all major world issues.
COINTELPRO has targeted groups and individuals that the FBI deemed “subversive”, including anti-Vietnam War organizers, members of black civil rights and nationalist liberation organizations (e.g. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Black Panther Party), feminist organizations, anti-colonial movements (such as Puerto Rican independence groups), and a variety of organizations that were part of the broader “New Left”. The Black Lives Matter movement is seemingly effective divide and conquer strategy now being used.
Another example is the war on drugs and campaigns like the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign. The U.S. is one of the largest producers and distributors of illegal drugs in the world yet it has a domestic propaganda campaign designed to “influence the attitudes of the public and the news media with respect to drug abuse” and for “reducing and preventing drug abuse among young people in the United States”. The campaigns include drastic and unrealistic attacks on marijuana.
In early 2002, the U.S. Department of Defense launched an information operation, colloquially referred to as the Pentagon military analyst program. The goal of the operation is “to spread the administration’s talking points on Iraq by using retired commanders for network and cable television appearances”.
Mockingbird has been an effective tool to overthrow governments as well as to get the public to accept false narratives as facts.
