– Remember! Government Propaganda Was Legalized To Be Used Against The American People Years Ago!
Back in July of 2013, WND published a story in which they reported a new law allowed Barack Obama to ‘take over’ the media. Granting the federal government massive new powers to saturate the American people with domestic propaganda at US taxpayer expense, if you’re one of those people who think that WND story or this ANP story might be ‘Russian propaganda’, we always suggest you check at least 3 very different sources to confirm your information.
On May 18th of 2012, Buzzfeed reported: “Congressmen Seek To Lift Propaganda Ban” – Propaganda that was supposed to target foreigners could now be aimed at Americans, reversing a longstanding policy. “Disconcerting and dangerous,” says Shank.
“I just don’t want to see something this significant – whatever the pros and cons – go through without anyone noticing,” says one source on the Hill, who is disturbed by the law. According to this source, the law would allow “U.S. propaganda intended to influence foreign audiences to be used on the domestic population.”
The new law would give sweeping powers to the government to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. “It removes the protection for Americans,” says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. “It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.”
On July 14th of 2013, Foreign Policy reported: “US Repeals Propaganda Ban, Spreads Government-Made News To Americans”.
For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government’s mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But 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. So what just happened?
On July 16th of 2013, SFGate reported: “US Government-Funded Domestic Propaganda Has Officially Hit The Airwaves”
The U.S. government’s mammoth broadcasting arm has begun the “unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption,” John Hudson of Foreign Policy reported on Sunday.
The content arrives with the enactment of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry (R- Texas) and Rep. Adam Smith (D- Wash.), which was inserted into the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The reform effectively nullifies the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which was amended in 1985 specifically to prohibit U.S. organizations from using information “to influence public opinion in the United States.”
While Hillary Clinton is busy lamenting over ‘fake news’ winning the election for Donald Trump and Obama cries ‘Russian propaganda’ into his cheerios while the CIA declares the Russians hacked the election, it’s great to see Donald Trump ripping those who are really pushing fake news as the 2016 election saw Americans awaken ‘en masse’.
As we see and hear in the first video below, an excellent new video going viral we suggest everybody watch, fake news has already caused massive chaos and social unrest across America and has been pushed by the mainstream media. The mainstream media has very real blood on their hands. Warning us of the ‘dark forces within’, just as Alex Jones warns us in the 2nd and final video below, we’re getting more and more evidence every day those ‘dark forces’ are still attempting to extinguish the 1st Amendment in America.
The new story from Breitbart is called “8 Times Hillary Clinton Pushed Fake News” and while the 8 examples seen below outline some of what we know of, what still lurks behind closed Clinton and MSM doors? Vince Foster? What more?
