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.”

Open Mic: Tehran

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | June 18, 2015

This is an interesting piece from the Compromised News Network a.k.a. CNN whose function is to spread U.S. propaganda. It does however comport with my view of reality concerning the Iranian people. Why? Because I went to school with many Iranians and this speaks to the truth of the majority of Iranians as I know them.  My big question is why a state-controlled media organ like CNN would publish something so obviously true? Scratching my head. This open mic news piece was published on Sep 25, 2013


Iran in 1960 - 70s

Picture of Iran from 1960 – 70s…

Despite reformatting their countries after WWI, Islam was on the path to moderation and modernization, until the U.S. began stirring the shit in earnest according to the ‘Made in America’ geopolitical strategies cooked up by Wolfowitz, Brzezinski and others.  Seems the average Westerner is happily indoctrinated by the many fictions created by the media and so follows the direction given without question; critical thought or examination of false assumptions promulgated by the state/corporate propaganda organs rarely makes it to the general public’s awareness, and if by chance it does, is soon forgotten.

Silk Road’s Ross Ulbricht sentenced to life

Ross Ulbricht

Ross Ulbricht

Poking the Monster: I must admit I haven’t been following the Ulbricht story, but after seeing the FBI crowing about the life conviction of a young Ross Ulbricht, I  posted the following comment (just below) on the official FBI Facebook page.

David Brown: Interesting that they give this young guy life in prison for setting up a website that allowed the transfer of illegal drugs, etc. yet when several large banks including HSBC get caught red-handed laundering billions in drug money, they get a slap on the wrist and ZERO jail time.”
Like · 961 · May 29 at 11:31pm”

I was amazed to receive 961 likes and many favorable comments, since I assumed I would be stirring a hornet’s nest, though ever so gently.  I thought of my post as a ‘logic-bomb‘ set off  in this FBI Facebook echo chamber of cackling sycophants, used to illustrate the abject duplicity and absurdity of the FBI’s position.  Surprisingly, at least 961 people agreed and were apparently aware of the Bankster’s FBI-issued, default get out of jail card.  Now, Ulbricht may be one evil dood –I just don’t know– and maybe he deserved some jail time; but life seems a bit much when the Banksters go free after laundering billions in drug money.   The hypocrisy is thick at the self-exalted FBI.  The FBI doesn’t need me to mock them with simple logic, they mock themselves by their actions. Furthermore, the corruption and complicity of the FBI in the 9/11 attacks can be seen up close and personal in Sibel Edmond’s Classified Woman If ever once you believed in the veracity and truthfulness of the FBI, this one book will disabuse you of such foolishness. The FBI serves a master, but it isn’t the American citizen and it isn’t ‘truth, justice and the American way’.

Normally, I don’t quote CNN (Compromised News Network) because of their obvious position as the official government gatekeepers and in their participation in something similar to the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, but decided to quote CNN under my comment above on the FBI Facebook site to eliminate the discussion around Ulbricht being a murderer, to wit:

From CNN: “The judge also said there was “no doubt” that Ulbricht paid for murders of those who had threatened Silk Road. Prosecutors had charged Ulbricht with commissioning six murders-for-hire but those charges were dropped and there is no evidence that these murders were ever carried out. Ulbricht, who is 31, was convicted in February on seven counts ranging from money laundering to drug trafficking. He could have been sentenced to only 20 years. “

I have always been a news hound


by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | August 20, 2014

I have always been a news hound as far back as I can remember. Originally, the only news I could receive was from the local news paper and three TV stations: ABC, NBC & CBS. The newspaper was limited to covering local, small-town events and then they would defer everything else to the New York Times or other big ‘well respected’ news authorities. The TV stations stood out to me remarkably because they covered the same news items every day the same way. Even as a child, I thought how odd that ABC, NBC & CBS would all come to the same conclusions the same way. I knew something was up. I knew there was someone, somewhere behind the scenes controlling what was considered important news and what was not; and I also knew that if you can pick and choose your facts: what to emphasize what to de-emphasize and what to leave out, you can tell whatever story that needs to be told. Later we had PBS which had NOVA and Jacob Jacob Bronowski’s series ‘The Ascent of Man’, which I loved; but even my new hope for good information was spoiled by PBS & NPR when they consistently shaped the news to their liking. Still later we had CNN, CSPAN-1 & CSPAN-2 but I never felt I was getting the whole truth. Then Fox News arrived and widened the news perspective just a bit but still stayed close to center gravity created by all the weight of other news spigots.

Later, Fox News got in trouble with cell phone hacking in the UK and jail time was threatened against the owner of Fox News. So as the threats increased, Fox News seemed to react by changing their perspective to be more in line with the establishment and even canceled a very successful and probative program, replacing it with reruns of unsuccessful programs. I smelled a rat. So, I turned off my TV and haven’t watched it since.

Other bright spots in the news delivery service is the great expanse of news available online. The Drudge Report is a good news aggregator and Drudge has a sublime talent for telling a story and creating news using only his headlines he places in the links to the news stories he aggregates on his site.

There are many other excellent new aggregators like:

Full Spectrum Dominance

and Global Research

Since I don’t watch TV anymore, I have much more time to read and read I have. Major books and videos that have opened my eyes wide enough to see who the men are that control our news and thus our collective sense of reality are:

None Dare Call it Conspiracy by Gary Allen
Classified Woman-The Sibel Edmonds Story: A Memoir by Sibel D Edmonds (Author)
The Anglo-American Establishment by Carroll Quigley
The Rockefeller File by Gary Allen
The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin
The Money Masters (film) by William T. Still and Patrick S. J. Carmack

Richard Nixon: The Man Behind the Mask by Gary Allen
Kissinger: The Secret Side of the Secretary of State by Gary Allen
Hope & Change by Carroll Quigley
Hope & Change 101 by Joseph Plummer
Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution by Anthony C. Sutton

James Corbett of The Corbett Report
Paul Craig Roberts

And on the cutting edge and early adopters of real ClearNFO, you have Alex Jones and the John Birch Society

There are many more important news sources out there on the Wild, Wild Web but I’ll leave that up to discover on your own.
