Propaganda is a word that usually brings to mind historic posters and speeches used to convey political messages, especially during wartime. According to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary, Propaganda is "Information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view." As educators, we need to recognize that propaganda exists today and prepare our students to be able to analyze information to identify and contend with propaganda in its various forms.. Mind Over Media is a one-stop site designed to provide teachers and students (ages 11 and up) with the tools to recognize and respond to modern-day propaganda. The site not only provides lesson plans and general information about propaganda but also serves as a place to curate examples which provides you with an opportunity to examine propaganda, rate its potential impact, and comment on it allowing a chance to share interpretations with others.. Modern lesson plans abound about propaganda. Some are ...

Propaganda is the tool of diplomats, but propaganda is nothing without facts. The works of cartographer Rouben Galichian provide the best ground for us in this propaganda war. Galichian, who served as Armenias Honorary Consul in London from 1992 to 2000 is an author of a number of historical and geographical studies. His most recent work is a collection of facts and images revealing the historical-cultural falsifications of Azerbaijan.
The Nazis used propaganda to win broad voter support, implement radical programs, and justify war and mass murder. This exhibition highlights the power of propaganda and challenges us to actively question, analyze, and seek the truth.. This exhibition was underwritten in part by grants from Katharine M. and Leo S. Ullman, and The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, with additional support from the Lester Robbins and Sheila Johnson Robbins Traveling and Special Exhibitions Fund established in 1990, and Dr. and Mrs. Sol Center.. ...
According to current and former officials who spoke to VICE, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and spokesman Sean Spicer were eager to be the ones responsible for delivering the "propaganda document" to Trump each day. Its not clear whose responsibility that is now, but I would guess it belongs to current spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.. The effort to assemble Trumps packet of happy headlines reportedly begins a 6 a.m. each morning, but if there are no good headlines they just look for photos of him.. I hope these "propaganda documents" are subject to Freedom of Information Act requests because Id like to see them. Im curious what percentage of Trumps happy headlines are actually ripped from the networks and publications that he constantly attacks. One cannot survive on Sean Hannity agitprop alone. ...

As a society alive with healthy skepticism, we often look back at historical events and are amazed at just how accepting various populations were of such blatant propaganda. Such propaganda has existed since methods of communication began, was refined into its modern form by the Creel Commission in 1916, and has since been a standard instrument of the state. But how does this distortion affect us now, even us healthy skeptics? Will history look back on our societys submission to the received wisdom that emanates from corporations, and shake their head in disbelief? Based on our dietary decisions and the state of our health, the evidence suggests so.. The distortion is all around us. First off, those who want to eat a good diet may find that trying to do so can be an exquisitely complex journey. Common sense may tell us that the diet our ancestors ate served them well, building healthy bodies and an almost total absence of chronic disease, yet modern received wisdom tells us to cut down on our ...
ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Thursday took notice of news reports and ongoing propaganda on social media about filing of cases against missing bloggers. Five online activists went missing earlier this month from different cities of the country with their whereabouts still unknown. Relatives and supporters of Salman Haider, Waqas Goraya, Aasim Saeed, Ahmed Raza Naseer and Samar Abbas denounced on Wednesday accusations - made on social media and with police - that the missing men had committed blasphemy. According to an interior ministry statement on Thursday, there was no truth in the cases filed against bloggers and such reports were ridiculous and non-serious. The minister said the aim of propagation of wrong information by some elements was to complicate the matter. Negative propaganda and propagation of wrong information was a clear proof of insensitivity of these elements, he added. "Maybe they do not realise that this act of theirs was further increasing ...
Most if not all holy-wood aka Hollywood movies are illuminati propaganda. Any movie with checkerboards or any other masonic/luciferian symbols stregically placed in them, are paid for and distributed by the illuminati for conditioning and mind control purposes. All movies put you into a trance for hours and cram ideas into our heads consciencely and subconsciencely. The bigger the movie the more illuminati propaganda is given. We pay for our own mind control. Isnt that just great. At IMAX like $15 a person plus crazy over priced food not fit for human consumption. We have no one to blame but ourselves for contributing to the NWO/OWN system. WAKE UP! CRY TO JESUS and get saved. Judgement is coming. Forget about the concentration camps, ufos, usos, chemtrails, Greys, Reptilians, demons, Fallen Angels, World Militaries, HIGH Tech, Bilderbergs, Rothschilds, Skull & Bones Men, GFL, NSA, CIA, FBI, CDC; and all the rest of the alphabet organizations.

So the newspaper of record, The Irish Times, uses the Cults propaganda to influence individuals attitudes and actions and to cultivate public support for their idea of a benevolent Cult, the Irish Catholic Church. Just so we know, Mr. Hitler and Goebbels did not invent Propaganda. The word itself was coined by the Roman Catholic Church to describe its efforts to discredit Protestant Teachings in the 1600s. Please let us remember, that The Irish Catholic Cult were notable for making propaganda a key element of their total control, over all levers of power, particularly the Irish Press, by appointing all its editors. The Irish Catholic Cult were able to penetrate virtually every form of Irish Media, from newspapers, film, radio, posters, books, and rallies to museum exhibits and school textbooks, with The Irish Catholic Cult propaganda. Whether or not propaganda was truthful or tasteful was irrelevant to the Cult. Yes Mr. Ferriter, we did hear from both The Bon Secours Sisters and The Irish ...

As a historian of medicine, it has been a privilege to study a variety of health propaganda campaigns-through posters, photographs, written records, films, and recordings of interviews with campaign participants, all of which have been carefully stored in archives and libraries across the world. Many of the public health campaigns of the latter half of the 20th century provide important lessons for public health work today. The global smallpox eradication program, which contributed to the eradication of a damaging human disease for the first time ever in history, is particularly fascinating and instructive. In order to increase general vaccination levels around the world and the reporting of the disease, public health officials carefully assessed local cultures, politics, and economics. They worked to produce publicity materials that helped engage masses of people, mobilize wide-ranging social and political support, and inform people about the great dangers of smallpox. Their success led to the ...
Whats interesting about this is that the very people in Congress who are complaining night and day about the nefarious influence of Russian propaganda actually dont have a problem with American citizens being targeted with fake news and propaganda at all - just so long as its coming from their own government.. Whats more, since this amendment was tucked into the defense authorization bill with relatively little fuss being made, one can assume that journalists charged with disseminating the real news arent too bothered by it either.. The coverage it did receive was amusing in that journalists appeared to be completely fine with disseminating pro-US government propaganda to foreign audiences, which is precisely what they accuse Russia of doing, and which they pretend to find so uniquely heinous.. One concerned Pentagon official who spoke to BuzzFeed about the amendment said it gave the government sweeping powers to push propaganda on the American people with no oversight. He worried the ...
The debate over funding for stem cell research has been marked by deliberate obfuscation and overblown promises. There is a huge difference between embryonic stem cell research and the other two types of stem cell research. Today, the left wing Los Angeles Times publishes an op-ed by Sigrid Fry-Revere of the Cato Institute which conforms to this pattern of propaganda. While arguing against government funding of stem cell research, the op-ed does nothing to clarify the essential distinction between embryonic stem cell research, the holy grail for cultural leftists anxious to protect the abortion industry, and adult and umbilical stem cell research. ...

Are you suggesting your (the authors) interpretation and presentation of what is real and true is less of a propaganda attempt then other information? Take the comment of MMR Vaccines not causing Autism, does mercury cause birth defects? Mercury is in Vaccines even to this day, Vaccines that have never undergone humane trials, have never been proven to work, and are so heavily lobbied onto the public that the manufacture holds no liability for adverse reactions, underperformance, etc. All liability rests on the public and the government. This is fact, the propaganda is believing vaccines are good for you and that they lead to safer, healthier, societies. Propaganda has provided drug companies with the ability to sell the idea of vaccines on the one hand, and to provide a product that never lives up to the expectations of the other. The propaganda induced belief in vaccines is so strong people are willing to fight the true tooth and nail. Parents demand vaccinations, children are forced to ...

Roman Khudyakov, speaking with Reuters Television. A member of parliament for Russias nationalist LPDR party, Khudyakov wants Russias central bank to remove the image of Greek god Apollo from the 100-rouble note. The image, taken from the statue of Apollo that stands outside the Bolshoi theatre, features a partially disrobed Apollo - his genitals are visible to those who look hard enough. Mr Khudyakov did so, and now wants the image removed to bring it "into line with the law protecting children" - specifically, one which bans "homosexual propaganda.". Image Credit: Outlamed. ...
What follows is an email discussion between myself and Professor B.R. Myers of Dongsoo University, author of "The Cleanest Race" and "North Koreas Juche Myth," and keeper of the Sthele Press blog. At the end of the discussion, I thought readers might enjoy reading it, and Professor Myers graciously agreed to let me print it here.. ~ ~ ~. Stanton: A few weeks ago, a commenter at my blog cited your work as evidence that North Koreans probably still believe in their political system. That raises several questions: first, do North Koreans believe in their political ideology; second, do they believe in Kim Jong Un; and third, can they distinguish between the two in a place like North Korea where the personality cult is so critical?. In "The Cleanest Race," you argued that North Koreas propaganda was effective. I see plenty of evidence that it works on a significant number of South Koreans. Although the sentiments of North Koreans are harder to measure, I agree that nationalism and xenophobia ...
A particularly effective strategy for demonizing Germans was the use of atrocity stories. "A handy rule for arousing hate," said Lasswell "is, if at first they do not enrage, use an atrocity. It has been employed with unvarying success in every conflict known to man." Unlike the pacifist, who argues that all wars are brutal, the atrocity story implies that war is only brutal when practiced by the enemy. Certain members of the CPI were relatively cautious about repeating unsubstantiated allegations, but the committees publications often relied on dubious material. After the war, Edward Bernays, who directed CPI propaganda efforts in Latin America, openly admitted that his colleagues used alleged atrocities to provoke a public outcry against Germany. Some of the atrocity stories which were circulated during the war, such as the one about a tub full of eyeballs or the story of the seven-year old boy who confronted German soldiers with a wooden gun, were actually recycled from previous conflicts. ...
May 16, 2007. Rosemary Jacobs is not the sole author of her story. Her story contains far too many unnatural elements that tell you that shes working with hidden advisors from the government (FDA) and perhaps pharmaceutical friends who have helped her craft a propaganda piece that is masquerading as her personal story. Her covert Mission (which she has accepted) is to get colloidal silver placed under FDA control and regulation. Thats why she presents her story with the unexplained and mysterious acronym of CSP whenever alluding to colloidal silver.
Nearly a year ago, Western corporate media outlets paraded video of a young Syrian boy, injured in a blast and allegedly being saved by the White Helmets. That video was presented as evidence of "Assads cruelty" and his "indiscriminate bombing of civilians" as well as the heroism of the White Helmets.. The picture of the boy, seemingly injured in some type of bombing incident, sitting alone in an orange chair in the back of an ambulance, blood stains on his face and covered in dust from cracked concrete also comes in video form, footage that lasts for about two minutes, showing the boy being carried to a well-equipped ambulance (with English writing on some of the equipment). The boys story was also accompanied by "heart wrenching" stories from "activists" in east Aleppo alleging the crimes of the Syrian government and the horrific situation in the area.. It was rather clear that the child was being used as a stage prop. After being passed to the medical "attendants," little Omran was placed ...

It is hard to avoid the overwhelming volume of texts discussing the War on Terror; even after the 10th anniversary of 9/11, there remains a clear need to investigate these events and to consider how they continue to inform and influence our contemporary landscape. Early discussions on the War on Terror dwelled on defining terror, including the social, political, ideological and economic influences that led to the attack on the Twin Towers. Significant among the responses to the attack were some that came via the diffuse forms of visual communication that mediated the act in the global village. It is precisely this mediation via digital technology that Neville Bolt sees as the basis for a paradigm shift in insurgents operating concepts. For Bolt, it is the communicative platforms and the visual that have empowered this shift, with acts of terror shattering conventional concepts of propaganda.. Bolt argues that there has been an equally powerful shift in communicative functions that reactivates ...
South Korea says it will restart propaganda loudspeaker broadcasts along the border with the North, following Pyongyangs claimed hydrogen bomb test.
UPDATE: Heres a comic-book pane from G. Willow Wilsons Islamist propaganda comic book published by DC Comics. (I tried to scan it the best I could, but the original is not readable, and a scan is only as good as the original, at best.) Its not even accurate, since airline officials long ago stopped being required to ask you who packed your bags. But its hardly "Islamophobic" to ask someone traveling on a one-way ticket to New York from an international destination, why they are doing so. Thats called being responsible and vigilant. Its called security. Because, you know, no Islamic terrorist ever bought a one-way ticket to a U.S. destination, right? If thats "Islamophobic," we might as well just pack up and convert to Islam right now. But for these self-proclaimed victims, everything is victimhood for Muslims. Everything ...

South Korea says it will restart propaganda loudspeaker broadcasts along the border with the North, following Pyongyangs claimed hydrogen bomb test.. The broadcasts will restart on Friday, South Koreas presidential office says, calling the Norths bomb test a "grave violation" of an agreement in August between the two Koreas, which had aimed to ease tensions. At that time, the two traded artillery fire after Pyongyang had demanded a halt to the broadcasts.. Pyongyang has threatened to launch "strong military action" against loudspeakers broadcasting messages critical of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the Yonhap news agency reports, citing South Korean President Park Geun-hye who said: "North Korea could carry out a surprise provocation at any time in the current confrontational situation on the Korean Peninsula and we should be prepared for it.". "Our military is at a state of full readiness, and if North Korea wages provocation, there will be firm punishment," senior presidential national ...

Look at everything Washington has accused such "rogue" states of doing, none of it has any evidence whatsoever. Much like they will never provide a shred of proof that Russia is behind the downing of a commercial airliner, because there is no evidence! Washington already had its propaganda PR machine in motion while the crash site was still smouldering and people can still tell me that they either partly or wholly werent behind it? There news networks were running 24/7 Russia! It was Russia, without a shred of evidence! Then when asked to produce evidence, they have none. Recently, once they realised that the blame Russia angle wasnt really making progress, theyve gone on to missiles launched in to Ukraine from Russia, the evidence a grainy cold war type satellite image showing two "craters", with added arrows apparently showing trajectory of missiles. What a load of BS! Even thats gone quiet ...
I presented it as a piece of propagandas but its missing the dichotomy of the utopia/dystopia. Parade of information is the passive voice. So what now? Start to write stories. Aaron Bocanegra gave me the best advice I think. Develop what it means to be in these places. This totally makes sense to me as it is a reexamination and elaboration on the senses. Expressing it in real translated feelings and notions. What if you received post cards from these different places where the inhaborg was deployed much like the Greek restaurants in Floridian beach towns. This piece is too much on the surface right now and has to get into the grind. I completely agree with this as this could be called a TEASER and not the whole money shot. Other things - express the bottom emerging proliferation. What are the arguments (to be or not to be alive and encompassing?) This agent is not just a design ...
Ask the vast majority of people who said that and it is a fair bet they will probably reply something like: Josef Goebbels, or maybe Stalin perhaps, Saddam Hussein might even come up, maybe even Henry Kissinger, or maybe even, in a lucid moment, they might reply Rupert Murdoch, or for that matter Denis O Brien. The truth is they would be wrong on all accounts. Although they would at least be relatively close with the last two or three.. But no, none of them said it, but it is a sure bet that all of the above names would understand the sentiment.. The quote is the first sentence from a 1928 book called Propaganda. The writer was Edward Bernays who many regard as the founder of modern public relations. As a bold and declarative sentence it leaves you in no doubt what so ever as to the logic underlying the words.. That is, the masses can be first organised and manipulated and secondly, even more important, they must be if "democracy" as it is largely understood today is to fulfil its function in ...

The parallels to Orwell dystopian nightmare state grow by the day. Those in control use technology to bombard Americans with psychological inducements designed to overwhelm the mind s capability for autonomous thought. In Orwell s 1984 the giant telescreen in every citizen s room blasts a constant stream of propaganda designed to make the failures and shortcomings of the Party appear to be triumphant successes. In Obama s 2013 the 72 inch Chinese made HDTVs in every McMansion blasts a constant stream of propaganda designed to make the zombie-like occupants buy trinkets and gadgets with a thin piece of plastic and makes the failures in Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt and Libya appear to be triumphant successes. Our corporate/fascist party uses their control over the media message to indoctrinate and control the public mind through propaganda and repetitive messaging. In Orwell s world, the Party undermines family structure by inducting children into an organization called the Junior Spies, which ...
Look, Im not a fan of poofter humor, or the corporate media, or the so-called "Resistance," but neither am I a fan of Trump, nor am I, technically, an employee of Putin. What I am is a student of propaganda, media manipulation, and mass hysteria, and though I experienced the roll-out of the War on Terror, and assorted other propaganda campaigns (like Obamas "Hope and Change" routine, Reagans "Morning in America" schtick, George H.W. Bushs "New World Order," and Bill Clintons "Third Way" happy horseshit), I have never witnessed anything like this. Most of those other propaganda campaigns at least bore some vague resemblance to reality. What were experiencing now is more akin to the kind of behavior that goes on in cults … where people are conditioned to surrender their reason (and, ultimately, to conform their perception) to whatever paranoid official narrative the leader of the cult has invented, and eventually to direct their fear and hatred, not only at the cults official enemy, but ...
For years the food police have waging war against food choice. After all the discussion in the sixties about "My body, my choice," the nanny state has decided we are not smart enough to make wise choices regarding our own food intake. "They" start with aggressive propaganda campaigns, followed by regulations, followed with even more propaganda. I bake bread. You mentioned in your article how indispensable salt is to the production of bread and pickling and other cooking processes. Studies after studies have shown that our bodies need at least half a gram per day to survive and that about 2.4 grams is a healthy amount, which which is usually accomplished without actually adding too much salt from the shaker. But I find the the hysteria about salt alarming. Its chicken little running around crying, "The sky is falling." Recently other victims of this kind of propaganda has been MSG, fatty foods, transfats, peanuts, gluten. My recent favorite is the big dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) scare. I believe ...
The US considered the control of information -- from both friend and foe -- during the Iraq war to be as important as any specifically military strategy. "Information dominance" came of age during the conflict in Iraq. It is a little discussed but highly significant part of the US government strategy of "full spectrum dominance," integrating propaganda and news media into the military command structure more fundamentally than ever before. In the past, propaganda involved managing the media. Information dominance, by contrast, sees little distinction between command and control systems, propaganda and journalism. They are all types of "weaponized information" to be deployed. As strategic expert Colonel Kenneth Allard noted, last years attack on Iraq "will be remembered as a conflict in which information fully took its place as a weapon of war." ...
Dont get me wrong, I enjoyed the Lord of the Rings trilogy although I am quite clear in my mind that there are no deathless elves, hairy footed hobbits or rings of power. Im not complaining about seeing fantastic things in a fantasy film. But, although it might carry moral messages we could discuss, LOTR is clearly presented as fantasy. The 2014 remake of Godzilla is presented as somewhat realistic present day science fiction. I think it probable that people will to some extent have their ideas about the inevitability of evolution by natural selection acting on random mutations reinforced by some of the semi-subliminal messages in the film. I am not saying that the producer and director sat down and deliberately planned to make Darwinist propaganda, Im sure they were more concerned with art, fame and money, but the message is there all the same. It is ubiquitous, and it is never questioned. The most effective propaganda is the propaganda of which you are completely unaware. ...
On 14 March 1939, the Slovak Diet declared independence under direct Hitler pressure and a proclaimed threat of Hungarian attack against Slovakia. Destruction of the plurality political system caused a fast decline of minority rights (the German minority preserved a privileged position). Tense relationships between Slovakia and Hungary after the Vienna Award were worsened by a Hungarian attack against Slovakia in March 1939. This aggression combined with violent incidents in the annexed territory caused large anti-Hungarian social mobilization and discrimination.[43] Some of the persecutions were motivated by the reciprocity principle included in the constitution, but persecutions were caused also by Hungarian propaganda demanding occupation of Slovakia, distribution of pamphlets and other propagandist material, oral propaganda and other provocations.[44] Intensive propaganda was used on both sides and led to several anti-Hungarian demonstrations. The harshest repressions included internment in ...
1985 June/1986 March-July The Cash for Comments Economists Network was commissioned by the Tobacco Institute to write economic opinion pieces opposing excise taxes on cigarettes in mid-year-1985. This propaganda requirment resurfaced as a major project for the economist in the peak of the Tobacco Industrys PR campaign against the Packwood tax plan (although the threat was obviously still a possibility until the end of 1986r). The Tobacco institute (much later) put together a package of commissioned economics reports (see front section of document), followed by about thirty op-eds and composite pieces which were generated by the Tollison/Savarese Cash for Comments Economists Network in this 1985-86 time frame. It illustrates the propaganda value of this network -- and shows what it can accomplish in a very short time for just a few thousand dollars in academic bribes. These op-eds attacking the Packwood tax plan were all published in local newspaper across the USA. (Copies needed to be sent in ...
1. A dictatorship - The Nazis thought that Germany needed a dicator who knew what was best for Germany, who made decisions which everyone obeyed because they were in the peoples interest.. 2. A one-party state - The Nazi party would be the only political party. 3. Economic success - They would make sure that the German people had jobs and food. They would help them save for their own cars. They would provide holidays and entertainments for loyal Germans.. 4. A police state - If there was opposition, the ** and the police would have absolute power to arrest, punish and even execute the enemies of the state who did not follow tthe dictator or submit to his demands for total loyalty.. 5. A propaganda state - Nazis believed that if they controlled what people in Germany heard, saw and read the they would be able to win their hearts and minds. Goebbels had already shown in the Nazi election campaigns of the early 1930s how successfully he could use propaganda. The Nazis believed this would be ...

And around the same time, Hübener found his brothers broken shortwave radio set stashed in a closet at their grandparents home.. ...
Triumph of the Will is a propaganda film by the German filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl. It chronicles the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg. The film contains excerpts from speeches given by various Nazi leaders at the Congress, including portions of speeches by Adolf Hitler, interspersed with footage of massed party members. Hitler commissioned the film and served as an unofficial executive producer; his name appears in the opening titles. The overriding theme of the film is the return of Germany as a great power, with Hitler as the True German Leader who will bring glory to the nation. Triumph of the Will was released in 1935 and rapidly became one of the better-known examples of propaganda in film history. Riefenstahls techniques, such as moving cameras, the use of telephoto lenses to create a distorted perspective, aerial photography, and revolutionary approach to the use of music and cinematography, have earned Triumph recognition as one of the greatest films in history. Riefenstahl won ...
I want to add a thank you for the work you are doing; we need all the help we can get, especially visual media which of course can have an impact way beyond print. I feel that video testimonials from astute, strong, convincing people with EHS could help a lot to counter the industry propaganda. These days, arguing back and forth about this and that peer-reviewed (which can mean biased towards the conventional) publications can be like arguing over interpretations of the Bible, because industry and the mainstream media encourage people to think that science is a matter of opinion or belief. Good science is neither, but is a reflection of reality, and although we have much good science showing harmful effects of non-thermal levels of EMF on animals, and some epidemiology implying harm to humans, industry has proactive propaganda that can convincingly minimize the importance of these. But now we have EHS - short term very disabling effects - on real people. People with EHS are the SMOKING GUN that ...

The fact is the big oil and energy companies WANT people to believe that man is causing global warming so that the government can regulate it, make it expensive to get so only the biggest energy companies are able to remain profitable within the industry and they will be able to sell the energy for much higher prices. MSNBC is owned by GE, GE wants you to believe in man made global warming, its good for their business. This isnt conspiracy theory drooling, this is how the world actually works. Companies work in their best interest, I know it might be hard to imagine but its true.. Fortunately even after all of the continues propaganda from the media and elite funded scientific institutions that most scientists agree about man made global warming, only about 20% of the population actually believes the science on global warming is settled. That is good to hear that those posting propaganda for the big energy corporations are not getting their message across.. I just brought up many valid ...
Dear Ms Kraus:. APCO Worldwide states that, as part of its key values and mission, it will act with integrity, honesty and transparency and will tell the truth..

This is propaganda for the Pill. Considering its extreme one-sided slant I dont see how it can be labeled as anything else. Its certainly not news and is founded on dangerous and manipulative half-truths. Its almost as a ridiculous as that crazy piece of research about how women who take the Pill are less likely to die of any cause. Less likely to die. Bizarre. Considering whats been happening with Yaz - the FDA appraisal, the independent watchdog revealing industry ties - this seems like lucky timing. A nice distraction from the fact that Yaz has a 50 to 75% higher chance of causing you to have a blood clot than other pills and this information was not just unknown, but covered up and it is still on the market. Just two media outlets reported fully on that. Just two. Every single newspaper, blog and magazine went after this piece of new research on the Pills impact on period pain. I find it interesting that for propaganda it is always The Pill - no brands mentioned - just this overall ...
The Past is Bourgeois Propaganda. The past is bourgeois propaganda, booms a deep voice in French from the stage of Pariss Odéon Theatre. I am participating after a fashion in the May uprising of 1968. I have lived for some months in a tiny maids room, eight flights up on the Île Saint-Louis, happily exiled, insulated from reality, smiled upon by fate, blessed and at the same time deprived. Most days I eat chicken necks and gizzards served with rice at a corner café - and eye the glittering and sexy world of Paris without taking much part.. My English friends, Kate and her husband Robert, found it rather curious I should be living all alone, doing a minimal amount of work, a bit of teaching, a bit of translating, maybe one or two articles for a newspaper, to get by, but they couldnt see what I was carrying. Nor could I, perhaps. I was an inner darkness, even to myself. I had no why and wherefore, even about who I was. I was, in the words of one of Dads songs, wandering on lifes ...

Mbeki "finally acknowledged reality", the editorial read. "The Bush administration should do so too and stop risking millions of new Aids infections and hundreds of thousands of lives.". Tobias, testifying in the House of Representatives in March, cited a supposed study by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, showing condoms did not help slow the spread of HIV.. The New York Times said: "Tobias is wrong, and not just about the science. The dean of the London School wrote him to say that the school never produced any such report, and that a steady stream of its research supports the idea that condoms do work.". The newspaper said the Bush administration was "using pseudoscience to explain its choices". However, in a letter in response published on Tuesday, Tobias defended the Presidents Emergency Plan for Aids Relief, writing that "reliance on condoms alone, in the face of the data, would be a tragic error".. The prestigious medical journal The Lancet has described US policy on ...
The following information will be filed with lawyers throughout the country, the public, the media, and an organizational effort is being made to inform all Canadians of the pure propaganda statements being made by certain members within the Canadian government. It is your job to inform and pass this information on to all Canadians to counter the propaganda. Lawsuits are being prepared at this time. The Pharmaceutical industry in the US has already lost many cases in court, for putting Thimerosal in vaccines. Not only is it not safe, it is a serious neurological toxin. This poison will be in this years H1N1 vaccine, at even possibly higher than safe levels, and members within the Canadian government, are making claims that there are no safety reasons not to take it. Thimerosal is a giant safety concern, and the FDA itself in its own papers admitted over a decade ago it should be phased out. This is just one adjuvant, not even mentioning the Aluminum Hydroxide - leading to female autism, or the ...
For 28 years, the Washington Times has sent disinformation slithering through the U.S. political system, befouling our democracy. Those days might be over. As an investigative journalist, Im not much for catchy political metaphors, but the revelation that snakes and rodents are infesting the Washington Times building as the Rev. Sun Myung Moons newspaper sinks into a financial swamp does have some poetic justice about it.
1) The follies of history. I am convinced a fixation on sugar (or fructose) as poison will result in net harm to public health - and quite possibly a lot of it. I am equally convinced that process has already begun. This is not because we dont consume a large excess of sugar; we do. Its not because that large excess doesnt contribute mightily to our prevailing public health ills; it does. Its not because there are no metabolic differences between fructose and sucrose; there are some, although I dont think they matter all that much in the real world. And its not because I own stock in Sugar Smacks, or because the sugar cartel is holding my first-born hostage; I dont, and they arent. Its because when the truth gets too hyped-up and too dumbed-down, it ceases to be the truth. It turns, instead, into propaganda - or at least fodder for the flames of propaganda. And the food industry will be only too happy to stoke those flames, as history has shown us ...
In his recent speech Hezbollah leader, Sayyed Nasrallah, alluded to a multi-phase "soft war" which relies upon the mass media complex to disseminate propaganda and bias, propelling the Middle East into, primarily, a sectarian crisis before descending even further into regionalism and finally a devastating individualism.. Cory Morningstars body of work does more than any other to expose the bare bones of the non-profit propaganda industry that governs both our reactions - and inactions, through a network of multi-layered and multi-faceted media manipulation campaigns, of which the end result is mass thought control. She explains:. "The 21st century NGO is becoming, more and more, a key tool serving the imperialist quest of absolute global dominance and exploitation. Global society has been, and continues to be, manipulated to believe that NGOs are representative of "civil society" (a concept promoted by corporations in the first place). This misplaced trust has allowed the "humanitarian ...
A sister site, PandemicFlu.gov, provides information on the HHS Pandemic Influenza Plan, "a blueprint for pandemic influenza preparation and response" that offers "guidance to national, state, and local policy makers and health departments" and "specifies needs and opportunities to build robust preparedness for and response to pandemic influenza." HHS admits these plans are based on plans formulated in 2005. During a press conference on October 4, 2005, Bush said the military would be involved in any response to a flu pandemic. "One option is the use of a military thats able to plan and move. So thats why I put it on the table. I think its an important debate for Congress to have," said the then decider in response to a question. A month earlier, in September of 2005, Bush shifted U.S. policy on avian flu and pandemic influenza, placing the country under international guidelines not specifically determined by domestic agencies, according to journalist Jerome R. Corsi. The policy shift was ...
Junk Science is easy to identify once you have become sensitive to it. The dead giveaway is when faulty scientific data and faulty analysis are used to advance a special interest group. Remember our motto: The solution to evolution is education! I doubt seriously that there is a Creation Science ministry anywhere that will not openly respond in print to the July 2002 article written in the Scientific American magazine entitled 15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense. The article was written by none less than the editor in chief, John Rennie. [Un-]Scientific American is one of the liberal presses best mechanisms for disseminating evolutionary propaganda. I read it only to know what the enemy is up to; I do not recommend that others read it. Of course, it ranks right up there with other propaganda magazines like National Geographic and Smithsonian.. If you have ever doubted the usefulness and achievements of the creation science ministry and message in the promotion of the Kingdom of God doubt no more. ...
Timothy Alexander Guzman, Silent Crow News - When polio (poliomyelitis) became an epidemic in the U.S. and other parts of the world many people were understandably concerned. Diseases are absolutely frightening. During the 1950s, polio made the public fearful. In April of 1952, Dr. Salk announced at the University of Michigan that he had developed a vaccine against the polio virus. That same day, the U.S. government approved a license for the immediate distribution of the polio vaccine. By 1954 the U.S. government allowed national testing for the newly developed vaccine which Dr. Salk himself developed by growing a live polio virus in kidney tissues in Asian Rhesus monkeys. He used formaldehyde to kill the virus. Dr. Salk injected the vaccine into humans with a small amount of the actual virus into the body so its natural defenses can build immunity or a defense mechanism against the virus. The first experimentations on humans resulted in 60%-70% who did not develop the virus although 200 ...

Yet again, the oldest trick in the Darwinists book, going right back to the master of sophistry and non sequitur himself-taking minor cyclical variations within a species and calling them evolution. Fraud and fiddling. Still, people continue to be taken in by it. If we are going to call minor cyclical changes such as colour in the peppered moth or beak size and shape in Galapagos finches evolution, we need a different term for the supposed (and unobserved) process whereby animals and plants (having spontaneously emerged from non-life without a designer) change into completely different animals and plants by information-adding mutations, like the ones that dont occur except in the imaginations of Evolutionists. Which takes us back to animations and art work. Anything is possible if you will only believe ...
Norman Solomon made an important point in his recent essay on Media: Mourning in America[1], in which he showed that the corporate media omits important facts, histories, relationships, etc., in their reporting. Of course, the media has become nothing more or less than the public propaganda mouthipiece of the status quo; particularly the government/military/media complex that works together to manipulate public opinion in ways profitable to the elite.. Several examples of instruction by omission by the current Bush administration and the Reagan administrations were in the news this week, and deserve recognition as effective propaganda.. George W. Bush gave a press conference in which, once again, he mentioned Saddam Hussein having cut the hands off of some merchans in order to blame them for a sagging economy. Bush presented no film or hard evidence that Saddam Hussein personally cut off the hands of the severn merchants, but made no doubt of his personal loathing of Saddam Hussein as the man ...
Corporate Ethics International and other activist groups involved in the Rethink Alberta campaign today pulled several anti-oil, anti-Canada advertisements placed in U.S. markets. The ads were pulled because they contained inaccurate statements.. "Both the U.S. and Canada have advertising standards to protect the public from claims that are not truthful, fair and accurate," said Janet Annesley, CAPP Vice President of Communications. "We suggest to Corporate Ethics International the only ethical response is a full correction to their ads, website and statements to media.". Earlier this week Corporate Ethics International and several other activists launched Rethink Alberta, a billboard and internet campaign comparing the crude oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to Canadas oil sands. Unfortunately much of the information they use to support their comparison is inaccurate.. While the campaign was met with an immediate negative backlash from the public in various internet discussion forums, and ...

The average American is now barley scraping by and many do a lot of their shopping at dollar stores. Most the growth in the job market is in low wage jobs which have zero benefits! The clear majority of Americans have bought into the propaganda promoted by the controlled media outlets.. The masses bought into this propaganda as Wall Streets big banks kept artificially inflating the equity markets with free and cheap money, which was at the expense of U.S. taxpayers.. The Obama Machinery put on a stellar performance for the American people, however, this was a fictitious story. In fact, the real number, as of January 2017, of unemployed Americans currently stands at 22.9%: (http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts). The big gains have been largely allocated to the well-connected financial sector.. Corporations took advantage of low interest rates to buy back stock in their own companies. Since 2008, corporate stock buybacks have surpassed $2.2 trillion. These buy backs have ...
From what the world has seen so far of Chinas new leaders, Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang have learnt a thing or two from Western spin-doctors.

The anti-vaxxer misinformation campaign has led to yet another outbreak of a preventable disease. Minnesotas Department of Health has announced that 44 people in the state have been diagnosed with measles, a disease once eradicated in the United States. Forty-two of the cases are in children, most of them Somali-Americans who were never vaccinated. According to numerous sources, the outbreak is the result of a sustained anti-vaccination campaign ...
The testimony in Dr. Kings trial starkly portrays the collusion of the paragons of the press with suppression and omission of important information, regarding the murder of Dr. King as well as in the efforts to smear Dr. King and the movement he was leading. The testimony of Bill Schapp is frightening reading about propaganda and disinformation in the information lifeline of this country. He testified that approximately one-third of the entire CIA budget and hundreds of millions of FBI dollars are dedicated to media propaganda operations. That the CIA actually owned, at the time of the Church Committee hearings, about 250 media organizations and employed thousands of journalists actually on the CIA payroll. Mr. Schapp testified that the FBI had friendly journalists at AP, Copley News Service, U.S. News and World Report, and at the Atlanta Constitution, The New Orleans Times Picayune, The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, even The Washington Post. Schapp testified that Frank Wisner ...
The TREASONOUS Alex Jones network, as enemies to forsaken American GIs, reported today through Watson, that the "mastermind" of 9/11 is Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. But how did he set explosives into building 7? no one will ever be allowed to ask. Trump stated for every law passed, two must be eliminated "so important". Problem: are you saying laws currently in operation are unjust? If so, why would one blind as evil sell, the laws can not be changed in any other way? TPP Trump is "re-balancing", a document no one of the public is allowed to read, or of treasonous Congress, with big thumbs up Mexico is not going to pay the tens of billions of dollars to build the wall to keep out the poor ...
Roger Ailes, a former media consultant to the Nixon administration (see Summer 1970) who proposed a White House-run "news network" that would promote Republican-generated propaganda over what he calls "liberal" news reporting (see Summer 1970), moves on to try the idea in the private venue. Ailes works with a project called Television News Incorporated (TVN), a propaganda venue funded by right-wing beer magnate Joseph Coors. Conservative activist and Coors confidant Paul Weyrich will later call Ailes "the godfather behind the scenes" of TVN. To cloak the "news" outlets far-right slant, Ailes coins the slogan "Fair and Balanced" for TVN. In 2011, Rolling Stone reporter Tim Dickinson will write: "TVN made no sense as a business. The… news service was designed to inject a far-right slant into local news broadcasts by providing news clips that stations could use without credit-and for a fraction of the true costs of production. Once the affiliates got hooked on the discounted clips, its president ...
Mr. Chairman, the Caspian region contains tremendous untapped hydrocarbon reserves. Just to give an idea of the scale, proven natural gas reserves equal more than 236 trillion cubic feet. The regions total oil reserves may well reach more than 60 billion barrels of oil. Some estimates are as high as 200 billion barrels. In 1995, the region was producing only 870,000 barrels per day. By 2010, western companies could increase production to about 4.5 million barrels a day, an increase of more than 500 percent in only 15 years. If this occurs, the region would represent about 5 percent of the worlds total oil production. One major problem has yet to be resolved: how to get the regions vast energy resources to the markets where they are needed. Central Asia is isolated. Their natural resources are landlocked, both geographically and politically. Each of the countries in the Caucasus and Central Asia faces difficult political challenges. Some have unsettled wars or latent conflicts. Others have ...

Colin Powell does not need more humiliation. But yesterday a London jury brought down another section of the case he made for war - that Iraq and Osama bin Laden were supporting and directing terrorist poison cells throughout Europe, including a London ricin ring. Yesterdays verdicts on five defendants … make clear there was no ricin ring. Nor did the "ricin ring" make or have ricin. Not that the government shared that news with us. The public record for the past three fear-inducing years has been that ricin was found in the Wood Green flat occupied by some of yesterdays acquitted defendants. It wasnt. [Found there] were the internal documents of the supposed al-Qaida cell planning the "big one" in Britain. But the recipes were untested and unoriginal, borrowed from US sources. Moreover, ricin is not a weapon of mass destruction. It is a poison which has only ever been used for one-on-one killings. All the information roads led west, not to Kabul but to California and the US midwest. The ...
Old Lyme is where Lyme disease was first diagnosed as a unique condition. German measles - hey, CNN, does that slur Germans? West Nile virus - West Nile is a province in Uganda, Washington Post. With regard to West Nile virus, wheres your outrage on behalf of West Niles Alur ethnic group? The Ebola virus was identified in 1976 in Yambuku, a village near the Ebola River. (To be fair, it was also identified in what is now South Sudan.) Rocky Mountain spotted fever is a bacterial disease. If you think the name slurs Colorado, seek psychotherapy, not a vaccination. ...

November 1, 2006; Page D9. A high-profile U.S. study on depression found that two-thirds of patients achieve remission, if they stick with therapy. But those who needed more than two treatments had sharply lower rates of success.. The study underscores the pervasive problems that psychiatrists face treating the most difficult patients, who are resistant to many existing treatments, and the need for more innovative antidepressants. It also suggested that patients who dont respond to one type of antidepressant can still benefit from a different drug in the same class, and dont immediately need to be switched to a drug with a wholly different method of action. Persisting in treatment was found to be key.. The study, parts of which already have been published, was seen as a landmark, because it looked at depression treatment over a much longer period of time than studies done by the companies that make the drugs. Its expected to help determine practice guidelines. An overview of the $35 million ...
From 1969-1971 Lt. Aquino was part of the brutal CIA run Phoenix Program in Vietnam that systematically engaged in propaganda, terror, torture and assassination to kill by some estimates of near 41,000 South Vietnamese citizens because the US, acting as judge and jury alone, deemed them minimally sympathetic to insurgency to full fledge Viet Cong militia members. Needless to say, thousands of innocent lives were callously slaughtered in the process. As mind control and propaganda war specialist, Aquino is of the mindset that the Vietnam War was lost at home due to the failure to properly condition and manipulate the American people into supporting the war effort. Most of Aquinos career has focused on controlling the minds and perceptions of targeted populations including the American people through any and all means necessary, which of course involves embedded journalism (starting with the first Gulf War) and complete control of mainstream news outflow (that shapes public opinion), electronic ...

After a lengthy investigation, Amnesty International and other independent watchdog groups discovered that the situation described by Nayirah was fabricated by a PR firm named Hill & Knowlton (the largest in the world at this time), which was hired by the group Citizens for a Free Kuwait in order to create propaganda that would galvanize pro-war sentiment. The man overseeing the campaign was Bush political confidante Craig Fuller. This was a massive project utilizing 119 H&K executives in 12 offices across the United States and even involved casting Nayirah, who turned out to be Nayirah al-Sabah, daughter of Saud bin Nasir Al-Sabah, Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. The Justice Department, which could have investigated the entire effort under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, turned a blind eye, allowing the Bush administration to pull off a massive "Wag the Dog"-style ideological false flag. Others call it "atrocity propaganda," a form of psyop (psychological operation ...

BEFORE THE HELMET LAW WAS PASSED : Robinson reported that cycling dramatically gained popularity in WA in the 1980s and as a result, cycling became more safer because the number of cyclists being admitted to hospitals decreased as per information from WA Health Department! Between 1982 and 1989, number of regular cyclists on the roads doubled. Take note that Robinson defines a "regular" cyclist as anyone who cycled at least once every week. The number of injuries and deaths per 10,000 cyclists decreased from 5.6 in 1982 to 3.8 in 1989, a 32.14% decrease. She rounded that to 33%, and finally concluded that it is consistent with Jacobsens growth rule which states that if cycling ever doubles, the risk per km falls by 34%.. ESTIMATIONS WERE USED : Australia did not have data on bicycle use for these years. So Robinson used "estimates" that she borrowed from the Australian Bureau of Statistics for 1982, 1986 and 1989. The amount of error in these estimations are unknown and how they were estimated ...
