Seeing Through the Narratives
Perhaps the pandemic brought some awareness of the lies promoted to control us. Anyone paying attention now sees the virus was engineered, deaths were exaggerated to manufacture fear, lockdowns were unnecessary and harmful, adverse reactions to the vax were not allowed to be made public as were simple preventative measures, ivermectin was an effective treatment, and many more lies. As this community is well aware, there are many more lies being pushed on variety of topics. Let's dive into some of those schemes below the fold.
Why is it difficult to see through the narratives? To my mind it is constant media propaganda plus the censorship industrial complex eliminating contrary voices. Consider the constant drone of Russiagate over the last several years. Even after it has been proven to be a false narrative created by the DNC crowd and reinforced by the FBI/CIA, most shitlibs still believe it is true. Ray McGovern was explaining MICIMAC pointing out MEDIA is in the center because it would all fall apart without the propaganda component.
This week in congress there were more hearings on the censorship industrial complex. At the hearing, Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) debated during questioning of Matt Taibbi and Michael Shellenberger. (4 min) The dimwit's rationale is censorship is okay because they only took down 35% of the requested accounts.
"This is WAY WORSE than Elon Musk's Twitter Files, GET READY" Fmr FBI Whistleblower (18 min)
A whistleblower confessed to journalist Michael Shellenberger that the government is indeed censoring Americans under the guise of “anti-disinformation” and that they know it’s illegal. Shellenberger is calling this the CTIL Files.
...a large trove of new documents, including strategy documents, training videos, presentations, and internal messages, reveal that, in 2019, US and UK military and intelligence contractors led by a former UK defense researcher, Sara-Jayne “SJ” Terp, developed the sweeping censorship framework. These contractors co-led CTIL, which partnered with CISA in the spring of 2020. In truth, the building of the Censorship Industrial Complex began even earlier — in 2018.
He claims that these revelations are even worse than the Facebook and Twitter Files, which were bad enough. The groups used tactics such as discrediting individuals and even tried calling for “banks to cut off financial services to individuals who organize rallies or events.” It's bad and the media silence on the matter is even worse.
Ireland has jumped the shark and has put censorship on steroids.
Ireland goes APOCALYPTIC with new hate speech law and U.S. is next
Hate speech laws in Ireland have been enforced in apocalyptic ways and politicians warn it will get worse. Here to break it down is biochemical engineer and corporate complex problem solving expert Ivor Cummings. He shows how crazy these laws are, which will allow authorities to check your phone, require you to hand over passcodes and presume guilt until innocence. He also explains why we should keep our eye on what happens in Ireland as it spreads across the West.
Thankfully we have this community to watch our respective backs and look for these little discussed truths.

WEF Warns of Cyberattack Leading to Systemic Collapse of the Global Financial System
A report published last year by the WEF-Carnegie Cyber Policy Initiative calls for the merging of Wall Street banks, their regulators and intelligence agencies as necessary to confront an allegedly imminent cyber attack that will collapse the existing financial system.
The WEF global leaders have become the leadership class of the west. Their loyalty isn't to their respective citizens, but to the WEF agenda.

It isn't like this is a new problem. This conflict has been festering for decades.

― Malcolm X
‘This statement on the Middle East was dated 31st January, 1970, and was read on 3rd February, the day after Bertrand Russell’s death, to an International Conference of Parliamentarians meeting in Cairo.
Every new conquest becomes the new basis of the proposed negotiation from strength, which ignores the injustice of the previous aggression. The aggression committed by Israel must be condemned, not only because no state has the right to annex foreign territory, but because every expansion is an experiment to discover how much more aggression the world will tolerate.
The refugees who surround Palestine in their hundreds of thousands were described recently by the Washington journalist I.F. Stone as “the moral millstone around the neck of world Jewry.”
No people anywhere in the world would accept being expelled en masse from their own country; how can anyone require the people of Palestine to accept a punishment which nobody else would tolerate? A permanent just settlement of the refugees in their homeland is an essential ingredient of any genuine settlement in the Middle East.
Bertrand was a renown philosopher and mathematician.
Many of the most devout Jews agree and see Zionism as harmful to Judaism.

"I Had to Rip Off the Mask I'd Been Wearing" | Rabbi David Mivasair (27 min)
Rabbi David Mivasair was a progressive Zionist for much of his life. More recently, he has committed himself to working towards the justice, equality and freedom of the Palestinian people. In this emotional and eye-opening conversation with Dr. Safiyyah Ally, he shares his journey with us, from his first time visiting Israel as a 19 year old and observing how Arabs were treated to his intensive engagement with Palestinians and support for people in Gaza. He shares how difficult it was for him to make that cognitive shift and rip off his mask, so to speak, and how hurtful it is to be considered persona non grata in the mainstream Jewish community. He feels the dominant Jewish institutions are locked into a defensive position, and he believes many Jewish people think similarly but are reluctant to speak out. He says much of what he does is informed by what he knows of the Holocaust and his understanding of his Jewish faith. He laments the dehumanization of Palestinians and says there's a propaganda machine trying to push a narrative with a campaign of misinformation and disinformation which people are increasingly starting to see through. His message to Jewish leaders? "Put the ethic before the ethnic."

Netanyahu Says He Wants Wars With Iran, Iraq, Libya & Russia! (13 min)
If there was ever any question that Benjamin Netanyahu has been a bloodthirsty warmonger from day one, a recently circulating video with footage of the Israeli Prime Minister over the decades repeatedly calling for regime change wars, whether with Iran, Iraq or Libya. One clip even shows Netanyahu demanding, and receiving, a standing ovation from the U.S. Congress over his bellicose rhetoric.
One thing this clip makes evident is that Israel owns all our congress critters.

We are all subject to propaganda and lies. It isn't always easy to see through the fog. One thing I find helpful is to look at what TPTB do, and pay less attention to what they say. The great game is rapidly in flux, and the US empire is clearly in decline. Both Ray and Larry Wilkerson are concerned that as our shallow leadership becomes aware of our losing position they will start using nukes in a desperate effort to keep the empire afloat. I hope they are wrong and economic restraints limit the damage we might do. So, my friends, let's keep our eyes and ears open and do what we can to alert one another of the nature of the coming storm. As always I look forward to your ideas and stories in the comments below.
