Bringing the Internet to Heel

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Nov 19, 2017

 It’s a documented, historical fact existing power structures control the dominant media and enlist the media’s help to shape public opinion. They paint landscapes and narratives in the minds of the masses; and create ‘well-established facts’ by consensus which may or may not be true; masking agendas of these same power structures. If you can’t accept this simple fact, you just don’t know your history, and this web site can help with that if you are interested.

So, for a few centuries, the American oligarchy created false narratives and false histories that do not hold up under dispassionate, critical analysis based on original sourced documents.  If you received your education from one of the American public school systems, universities, or the news and entertainment media, what you think you know is just not true. 

The truth of these matters can be difficult to determine if you are not equipped with the tools for the job. Firstly, it is important to recognize unexamined assumptions; and secondly, is important to be able to recognize common logical fallacies that trick most of us most of the time; if your assumptions are wrong, all logic that flows henceforth is suspect, even if your logic is perfect. A thorough examination of your unexamined assumptions can be scary, because you may be required to ‘gore your own ox’ in the pursuit of truth; this can be upsetting for many, and perhaps not worth destroying ingrained, cherished belief systems.

Our oligarchy first finessed control of the print media, then the radio and television and of course Hollywood; but with the advent of the internet, little truth-rays of light have been able to escape the otherwise well-controlled media. The oligarchy is very upset about this, so you can expect major moves to bring the internet under their control. They are just now working this out, but have made great progress recently with major internet players like Google, YouTube, and Facebook. To give the appearance of objectivity, the ‘ministry of truth and all goodness’ has elicited the help of Snopes, PolitiFact and others as the ‘final arbiters of truth’, just in case there was a question amongst the masses. This is not to say everything from Google, YouTube, Facebook, Snopes or PolitiFact is false, because it is not. Most of what is printed or filtered for consumption contains the required measure of truth to make it plausible if not entirely believable. The problem arises with the unexamined assumptions and the logical fallacies mentioned above.

Solving the Wrong Problems

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | July 02, 2017

I’ve been watching the news since at least five, but back then my only sources were CBS, NBC and ABC… but even as a child, it was curious to me that all three channels selected the same news and same viewpoint. Truth –it seemed– was nice and well-behaved. Different personalities, yes, but there was an obvious sameness that I could recognize but not explain. Later, we had PBS and NOVA which I loved and then there was CNN which seemed to break the monotony of the big three networks … and soon, there were hundreds of stations. Despite the explosion of stations and choices, little in-depth, satisfying news was available. There was no real choice.

As CNN’s newness grew stale, Fox News came to the rescue, again breaking the monotony of sameness. But Fox turned the news into entertainment soundbites and punished any like Andrew Napolitano who dared to question the walled garden of ‘well-established’ fact-claims. Again monotony and sameness prevailed until the Alt Media presaged decades earlier by Mae Brussell, energized by Alex Jones, documented by Patrick Wood, James Perloff, James Corbett, refined by Richard Grove and others emerged from obscurity to question the officially promulgated narrative of the big sameness.

And despite my love of news and current events, history in the public school system was a dull, boring monotony of sameness promulgating the same set of unexamined fact-claims echoed in the news media. Something was wrong, but I had no real proof, until I read the Reece Committee report of 1953 (United States House Select Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations), where I learned our history was contrived, controlled and basterdized by some of the most respected institutions in America: American Historical Association; Tax-Free / Exempt foundations like the Rockefeller, Carnegie, Guggenheim and Ford foundations. These folks had paid for the version of history we all willingly consumed; and no one was the wiser. After all, who would read these 1953 congressional reports and investigations into this blatant fraud?

I then read a true accounting of our major wars from James Perloff; based on actual source documents and found that all our major wars (Spanish/American, WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam) were based on manufactured narratives; contrived, false information; and no one was the wiser.

But the lens revealing the men and the methods behind this corrupt fog of obfuscation was Carroll Quigley’s ‘The Anglo-American Establishment’; which proves beyond any doubt, we are being controlled by lies and herded like livestock to be fleeced, rendered and used by those –who today– seek to control the free flow of information on the internet.

What our masters know: Information is power and without the truth, we will all be trying to solve the wrong problems and never be able to identify the real villains who control our worldview and therefore our destiny.

Solution: Stop relying on the paid authorities and learn to read and think again on our own. After all, it was Allen Dulles who assured his coconspirators all is well since “Americans don’t read.”

RED PILL

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April  23, 2017

({RED PILL}): The Globalist plan for global conquest was as so… to fit regional pieces into a global super-structure: The EU (28 countries) was to fit into NAFTA (3 countries) using TTIP as the connector, then the TPP (12 -18 countries) was to be used to connect the EU, NAFTA and TTIP to the Pacific Rim countries. This global structure –once completed– was to be further homogenized using UN-Agenda 21 (now 2030 Agenda). To fund the governance of such a massive system, a global tax was required: Carbon Taxes, which could be used as a tax and a ‘justifiable’ control mechanism for every single human on the planet. The final goal is a scientific dictatorship, they call a ‘Technocracy’ to protect mother earth through population reduction. This is not about orange hair, small hands, left or right, male or female or Islam. Islam is being used as a tool by the globalists: out of chaos comes order, a new order controlled by the money masters, who are the natural predators of man. The death of TPP, the Brexit and the populism of Marine Le Pen (even if she loses), has set this global plan back decades. Russia and Putin are being used as the ‘big bad wolf’ to scare their livestock (that’s you) back into the pen. While you are at work, paying your bills and your taxes and raising your family, this is the kind of shit these folks are thinking up. Stop being their fool. Now.

Trump has flipped

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April  23, 2017

Quick assessment on Trump:

  1. He has flipped to the Neocons
  2. He has flipped to the Deep State
  3. He has partially flipped to the Globalists

If Trump flips on all three, we will have a de facto continuation of the Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama agendas.

More in-depth, penetrating analysis from from Dr. Paul Craig Roberts…

TMR 171 : Dr. Paul Craig Roberts : Trump Is Over
Published on Saturday, 22 April 2017 20:50

“I think that the Trump presidency is already over. I’m not even sure he qualifies as a figurehead.”—PCR

Dr. Julian Charles: “We are joined once again by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for Economic Policy, for a discussion on the Trump presidency so far.”

Dr. Roberts assesses the performance of the new president and his administration with reference to pre-election promises; shares with us his view that the deep state has effectively neutralised Donald Trump as US president; gives his reaction to the so-called “Syrian gas attack” in Idlib, and the subsequent military action by the US against Syria; and considers the very real prospects for war as Washington steps up its warmongering around the globe.

James Perloff on Trump, Syria and the New World Order

Published on May 25, 2017

James Perloff returns to Our Interesting Times to his article “Trump Is Unmasked: 14 Reasons Why the Syria Airstrikes Were a Really Bad Idea.”  We talk about President Trump’s decision to order a missile attack on a Syrian airfield last month and why this apparent betrayal is a signal that his administration has been co-opted by neoconservative warmongers and the Israeli lobby. Later we discuss Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, his connections to the Deep State and organized crime.

The Fact Checker’s guide for detecting FAKE news…

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Dec 13, 2016

FAKE NEWS

On the matter of FAKE news.  After the painful and unexpected loss of their rigged 2016 presidential election, our overlords have come up with a new method to constrain the alternative news using their newly minted Ministry of Truth; so I thought now would be a good time to find out how to determine what is fake and what is not.

There are many kinds of fake news sites. On one end of the spectrum, you have news satire sites like ‘The Onion’ that make no bones about what they are up to. They blatantly make outlandish claims like the US will be painting the White House pink. This pink story even fooled the official Chinese news service who embarrassingly repeated this fake, but very funny story. This was a painful lesson for our authoritarian Chinese friends, but a lesson none the less. I read the Onion for fun, but never, ever post the Onion articles to my FB page, since many will share and re-post as fact.

Another kind of fake news site is one that does not source any of their fact-claims, they just make statements of opinion and present them as fact. They may be true or not, but can never be trusted. Usually just click-bait to satisfy your own prejudices.

Other sites are run by the CIA for a myriad of reasons. One of their favorite tricks is to place something in the news that will later prove to be false. The fake news item is repeated by all those in the alt media who do no fact checking or sourcing, thus making the alt news folks look stupid… and many are. It’s a fun game.

Another CIA game is the limited hangout. The CIA uses this technique when they have been caught with their pants down. They will release just enough true information to give credibility but try to steer the public around the real data, hidden within. This is my opinion on Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and The Intercept.  Why?  Check my articles at ClearNFO: search for Snowden. (The Intercept,  somehow escaped inclusion in The FAKE 200;  heavy /S)

NOTE: It is important to realize that as of July 2nd, 2013 the US Government repealed the Propaganda Ban on Government-Made News for Americans, making it open season with billions to spend to lie and deceive the American public with our own money. Cool. Our representatives actually vote for this shit.

I’ve divided the News into the following four (4) Categories:
1. FAKE but fun
2. FAKE with malice and forethought
3. FAKE without malice or forethought
4. REAL news sites

***NEWS Categories***

-FOR FUN
• News satire sites like ‘The Onion
• I’ve listed others at the bottom of this article.

-WITH MALACE & FORETHOUGHT
(Key Indicators: Heavy use of logical fallacies and omission of key data)
• MSM: ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NYT, Washington Post, etc.
• The Economist
• WSJ
• CIA PSYOPS
— Working with the MSM to shape public opinions (see Operation Mockingbird)
— Setting up fake news sites to help paint public landscape
— Releasing plausible but fake stories to embarrass those who repeat without verifying
— Limited Hangouts: Example ‘The Intercept’. Characteristics: well-funded and CIA connections. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting — sometimes even volunteering — some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further.

-WITHOUT MALICE OR FORETHOUGHT:
• Blinded by ideology
• Blinded by the desire to please their financial supporters
• Lazy, ignorant

-REAL NEWS SITES:
Good: James Corbett of The Corbett Report (See my links tab at ClearNFO for more good sites)
Bad: CFR.  The CFR is one of the major sources of evil on this planet, but they are generally very truthful about what their plans are.  You may have to read between the lines a bit and it helps if you understand their origin and their plans for a one world government.  A good place to start is with James Perloff’s excellent book,  The Shadows of Power or with The Quigley Formula video on YouTube by G. Edward Griffin.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
• Where does their money come from?
• Who is on their board of directors?
• Who are the owners?
• Do they site sources?
• Do they date their news articles?
• Do they EXAGGERATE their headlines?
• Does their headline match the content?
• Is the site geared for click-bait?
• Reputation? Good, bad or none?

U.S. Repeals Propaganda Ban, Spreads Government-Made News to Americans

The Smith–Mundt Act of 1948 banned the US Government from producing propaganda aimed at US Citizens.  On July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts.

Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 (part of the National Defense Authorization Act) has repealed the domestic prohibition, allowing the government’s broadcasting to be directed at/created for Americans for the first time in over 40 years. Jul 15, 2013

BBG (Broadcasting Board of Governors): The mission of the Broadcasting Board of Governors is to inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy. The agency’s mission is reinforced by those of the individual broadcasters that are overseen by the BBG.

The Walled-Garden Revisited (II)

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April 10, 2016

The Walled-Garden

The Walled-Garden

Imagine, if you will, a vast collection of people, scurrying about doing their daily chores surrounded by walls.  Within these walls lay rolling hills of green grass, tall strong oak trees, and of course fruit, wine and game, all for the taking.  You and your fellows live within these walls constructed so long ago, that everyone ignores them and has just about forgotten they even exist; so much so, they have become invisible to the average man.  But still, every so often, a hapless chap ventures beyond the walls and becomes raving mad.  No one will have anything to do with him or even hire him to do a job because he makes no sense.   No one knows for sure, where precisely the walls begin or end but by fear.  The story goes that if you were to get close to the wall, fear would surly warn of your impending demise and you would quickly go mad if you did not possess the good sense to immediately turn back toward home.

Over the many years of living within the walls, there were disagreements and ruckuses and tussles, but they all stayed clearly within the confines of this walled garden; and so life was not perfect but tolerable, understandable and well-behaved within the garden.

Yet still it is necessary to remind all through education and broadcasting of the tribal knowledge we have gained from past experience.  Highly-trained and trusted experts inform the masses that these walls really do not in fact exist as described; they represent only an illusion, yet warn not to get too close lest ye shall surly lose your mind.

So this is where the majority of Americans find themselves today. Even our brave and brilliant luminaries like Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and others give homage to our wall.

So what is this wall constructed of?  It is made from mythologies and cherished beliefs based on false assumptions.  What are some of these beliefs?  I have listed a few below, all of which are demonstrably false, yet still the majority of Americans still believe.

  • That America is a good and decent country trying to save democracy and freedom
  • That America’s wars of the 20th century were justified to save democracy and freedom
  • That America uses its financial and military might to spread democracy and freedom in the world
  • That JFK was killed by a lone gunman
  • That the Warren Commission Report was a true and accurate report
  • That the attacks on 9/11 were planned and carried out by Al Qaeda
  • That the 9/11 Commission Report was a true and accurate report
  • That the invasion of Iraq was a mistake
  • That the invasion of Afghanistan was to fight Al Qaeda
  • That the invasion of Libya was to save the Libyan people
  • That the war in Ukraine was caused by Putin
  • That the war in Syria is to save the Syrian people
  • That the Federal Reserve is federal and has reserves

All of the above constitute parts or bricks of the wall that surrounds our garden.  There are many more such bricks but they all have one thing in common.  They are all false.  Provably false.

Rare and important interview with John Young and Deborah Natsios of Cryptome.org by Pit Schultz. If you don’t know what Cryptome is, you need to find out. Beware, John pulls no punches. None. I’ve been using Cryptome since 1996 or thereabout. John contributes some important information most are not aware of in this interview by way of Snowden, Greenwald and the Intercept. It takes an astute observer to see though all the BS we are fed.

Killing the Innocent

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Jan 27, 2016

Lahore's Gulshan-i-Iqbal park

Lahore’s Gulshan-i-Iqbal park

As I read about the Suicide bomber who killed 72 –mostly women and kids– at a Pakistan park today, I also learn that the blast occurred next to the children’s swings, killing and maiming over 200 people. Footage shows the women and children screaming and crying in terror, with body parts strewn about… and I ask myself who can do such a thing and why?

It doesn’t take long to realize that murdering innocence is a long tradition for man. We have historical and current episodes of mass murders; some we justify, and some we condemn. So how are we –as rational, empathetic, moral human beings– to understand this? As a society and as individuals we generally agree that some murders are justifiable and others are not, but what are the criteria? We each have our own worked-out criteria that satisfies us to some extent to help us justify our actions and our judgments on other’s actions. Most would agree that self-defense is justifiable for most violent actions against another, yet even this clear line is not so clear if an entire population has been severely abused and denied justice. It is my experience that a man denied justice is a very angry man indeed, capable of almost anything. But this is not a complete picture since we have those among us who are not capable of any empathy or remorse despite the actions of others. This is a special case of psychopathy that may be genetic or learned. Others of us must learn to dehumanize our target/enemy so that we can live with the evil we have wrought. Even after our dehumanizing efforts, many suffer the remainder of their lives, realizing the truth of the evil they have done. Still others have been subject to deep brainwashing and mind control though repetition of memorized texts and training from an early age. There has been much study on this topic and much written and many experiments by our own CIA for example via the MKUltra project and others. These experiments done on our children by the CIA are bone chilling and disgusting. The goal here for our CIA is to gain control of others so that they can cause them to do things they otherwise would not do of course for ‘National Security’.

Still, to muddy the water even more, we have ended the lives of some 55 million of our most innocent ones by calling them dehumanizing terms like ‘fetus’ or ‘tissue’ and we call this mass murder a ‘medical procedure’ to further protect our conscience.

When we go to war, we call our fellows terms like “japs” “uncivilized” and “barbaric” “raghead” “insurgents”, “targets” or worse. We have many ways to justify mass murder. If we are at a remote facility directing a drone, we can kill entire populations at a wedding or a funeral using the term ‘collateral damage’ and our leader can even proclaim: “I’m really good at killing people” with a proud smile. Others in leadership positions can claim that killing over 500,000 children in Iraq was worth it even though our actions were illegal, unconstitutional and based on lies. We can bomb entire villages or cities with white phosphorus, without a tinge or remorse since we are having other professionals do our killing for us.

Still, I am left with a helpless feeling that someone could murder and maim so many beautiful and innocent children at a park in Pakistan with forethought and planning without any feelings of remorse.


MK-ULTRA, Monarch & Paperclip

Talk Radio KTRH 740 AM

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Mar 28, 2016

KTRH NEWSRADIO

KTRH NEWSRADIO

Talk radio KTRH 740 AM’s talent and employees all agree that Cruz is a saint and Trump is the devil. They have used their own group-think to work themselves up into a frothing mental lather of insanity and in the process turned KTRH into a Cruz echo-chamber. Their folks are constantly pumping Cruz and dissing Trump; and in the process, twisting themselves into unnatural mental pretzels. It is an amazing display of ignorance masquerading as truth and wisdom. All their talent: Michael Berry, Matt Patrick and Shara Fryer; even the weather-person and traffic man are getting in on the action. Add to this their paid programming: Mark Levin’s blind allegiance to Cruz and even Rush spent an hour defending Cruz; though Rush is much more circumspect, and you have a complete programming day designed to pump Cruz ad nauseam. The team at KTRH are amazingly monolithic in their politics. The lengths they will go to protect Cruz is very entertaining. For example, they are 100% positive that Cruz has never, ever cheated on his wife. How could they possibly know this? If it turns out that the National Enquirer is correct, they will all look more ignorant than they already do. How will they explain this to their loyal audience they have misled?
