I’ve had people write in and ask me if I’m hinting that the so called terrorist shooting in San Bernardino was somehow a false flag. I’m not hinting about anything folks, I’m saying flat out that there’s a ton of things that don’t add up. So let’s take a look at some big picture stuff and see where this leads….
How many of you ever heard of the Smith Mundt act? Probably not too many. Well the long and short of it was that… for fear that the Government might use coordinated propaganda over the air waves to influence people, the Smith Mundt act was put in place to make it illegal for the Government to create agenda driven “lies” to push the people towards believing what the Government wanted them to believe.
For years on end after WWII; “propaganda” was being broadcast around the world. Programming produced by the Broadcasting Board of Governors such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks could only be viewed or listened to at broadcast quality in foreign countries. What ever Uncle Sam thought was a good message to tell Iran, Iraq, Germany, Vietnam, Japan, China, Pakistan, India, Africa etc, was blasted to them. We talked of the US being exceptional; we talked about human rights, American Leadership, and on and on. But the Smith-Mundt act made it “illegal” for the Government to turn its massive propaganda weapons on us.
Well that changed. On July 2, 2013 the Smith Mundt Act was repealed. From that moment on, the Government had the right to produce PROPAGANDA and spread it through any arm of the media it could get its hands on. Critics can’t help but suggest that the latest amendment to Smith-Mundt; courtesy of Reps. Smith and Thornberry… have opened the door for the use of propaganda to persuade the American public on any topic or agenda they wish to push.
