Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours (2/13/18).
I try not to always begin by saying, “LOOK the MSM is propaganda,” yet it continues to baffle me just how obvious it has become. With all that is going on, at home and abroad, one side’s main story — their headline front page news — is still about White House staffer allegations and unsubstantiated accusations, and just endless back and forth conjecture and opinion. All with war and crime and corruption bursting at the seams. While the other side is still (as the good establishment propagandists they are) forcefully telling their viewers “not to fall for Kim’s Olympic tricks” — deviously disguised peace talks — and really driving home the point that North Korea is a “true threat,” despite all the evidence to the contrary. They also always fail to mention the real history behind both why North Korea is hesitant to trust the US and why historically it’s laughably hypocritical for the US to point the finger at anyone else for being a threat. Again, all this is presented as the most important news of the day, when in fact, it is not news at all. It’s simply government talking points, being presented as news.
Everyone should take a moment to read the article, “Lifting Of US Propaganda Ban Gives New Meaning To Old Song,” that does a great job of rehashing a point I have been discussing since 2013. Propaganda is being presented to the public as news, even lies. This was once illegal, and is now completely legal due to the NDAA amendment in 2013 — the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act.
The original Smith-Mundt Act made it illegal to disseminate propaganda within the US. Regardless, we know the government did it anyway, with projects like Operation Mockingbird, where the CIA infiltrated major news outlets to manipulate perception, precisely what that act was supposed to make illegal. Nothing ever stops the CIA from breaking the law, as we have made abundantly clear, intelligence agencies are never held accountable.
Yet, up until this amendment in 2013, it was only legal to spread propaganda abroad, something all government still do today. However, a fact that few are aware of, because mainstream media and the government make a point of not revealing it to you, is that it’s now written into law within the NDAA that the government can literally create false new stories, actual fake news, the same manipulative propaganda that the government uses on those outside the US, but now at home, all under the guise that the lie itself serves a “national interest.”
The point being — that news story you saw last night, the one everyone is talking about, could be, likely is, a government cultivated propaganda piece. As outlandish as they may seem to some, it is in fact within the 2013 NDAA, and doing so is absolutely legal, not moral or honest, but legal in the eyes of the government. So keep that in mind.
The reality is that the people have become the enemy, because the government has become the problem, or rather, those who have led it astray for selfish, ambitious or devious reasons. So any critical thinkers who truly believe in the values that this nation once claimed it stood for, are now extremists.
The simple fact that those who believe in the nation’s founding document, or veterans of the country itself, are now deemed a threat, should reveal the truth of who is pulling the strings — and it’s not someone who believes in liberty and justice.
It is important however to note that there are those within the government who have been manipulated to think they are doing the right thing — not every one is a sister villain trying to take over the world. We are all susceptible to manipulation. Even some in the independent media today manipulate people, even from a place of good intent. They just want the truth to succeed, to fight fire with fire if you will, but that is just as bad.
If the truth is to truly succeed, we must be better.
Just as they are clearly not, WE must be accountable, and it is now Day Ten, and we have still seen no accountability for all the crimes being uncovered. They are just hoping the partisan fights and new drama-filled stories pull away your attention and make you forget that those in the elite circles very rarely see the inside of a jail cell.
And to finish today I leave you with a good example of this lack of accountability:
James Clapper. A key architect of RussiaGate, has committed perjury by lying to Congress in regard the spying we now verifiably know takes place. And more recently, he lied about the Trump campaign being wiretapped through a FISA request. These are undisputed facts, yet not a single person, on either side, has called for him to face charges.
He is now an analyst for CNN.
Please take the information discussed in the video below and research for yourself, and come to your own conclusions. As anyone telling you what the truth is, or claiming they have the answer, is likely leading you astray, for one reason or another. Stay Vigilant.
