The uses of propaganda

by Jon Rappoport

November 17, 2015

(Jon has a new work of fiction at his other blog, Outside The Reality Machine. If you want to take a wild ride, read it.)

“After catastrophic events, the propaganda machines start rolling. Opportunities abound. The goal is: use the disaster to boost a current agenda, when there really is no connection at all. It’s called a non-sequitur. It’s perfect food for dim minds.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Let’s look at how propaganda arising out of the Paris attacks will be deployed in the upcoming Climate Summit.

File this under: how much hay will global elites make from the Paris attacks?

Also file it under: the use of complete non-sequiturs as propaganda, to achieve desired results.

Let’s consider the Paris Climate Summit (COP21), scheduled to start on November 30 in Paris. No less than 120 nations will be represented by their heads of state, including Obama. Somewhere between 20 and 40 thousand credentialed representatives are going to attend.

That gives you some idea of the importance of the event. This is a big deal. Very big. As the Scientific American states in “Paris Attack Will Not Halt Global Climate Talks”:

“The two weeks of talks begin Nov. 30 and will take place at Le Bourget airfield on the outskirts of Paris. They are expected to culminate in a new international agreement to lower greenhouse gas emissions and possibly put in place a system by which nearly 200 countries can regularly enact new and stronger climate targets.”

The Paris summit is the most ambitious effort yet to impose the pseudoscience of global warming on the planet. Lower CO2 emissions, carbon taxes, cap and trade, the whole works. Result? Reduce energy output and supplies for all nations, deepening poverty, increasing chaos.

Now, to sample the flavor of comments on the Climate Summit, in the wake of the Paris attacks, here are statements reported, again, by the Scientific American:

“Diplomats from New Zealand to the Maldives said they believe the vicious assaults on ordinary citizens are precisely the reason the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP 21) to the U.N. climate convention must still convene as planned. U.S. President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry will be among nearly 120 heads of state attending.”

“’COP 21 has to take place; otherwise, it would mean being weak and scared by terrorism, which would be for them an additional victory,’ Pascal Canfin, France’s former minister of development, told ClimateWire.”

“Agreed Jeffrey Waheed, deputy permanent representative of the Maldives to the United Nations, ‘We cannot acquiesce to brutality. It is important that terror attacks don’t dissuade us from what’s most important to the international community.’”

Getting the picture?

Here comes the non-sequitur: “solidarity in the face of terrorism” among nations equals: “we must all agree on deeper enforcement of climate rules.” That’s the pitch, that’s the propaganda.

Logically, it makes no sense, it’s an idiot’s dance, but whoever said propaganda relies on logic?

You’re going to hear this kind of thing: “If we convene in Paris and can’t come up with hard agreements on climate enforcement, we’ll be dishonoring all those who died in the attacks…”

And this: “We have one chance now to show how determined we are to forge a global community, not just for climate agreements, but for all that is good, against the brutal killers who assaulted this great city…”

Connecting two ideas that don’t go together is one of the prime strategies of propagandists—and you can see it’s already being used in this case. Again, we’re not talking about some small attempt to forge climate rules. This is a huge piece of the Globalist agenda, because it drives all nations deeper into poverty and energy deficits, under the guise of “saving the planet.”


power outside the matrix


In the case of the University of Missouri student protests, where the accusations of horrendous racism on campus have, so far, proven to be largely a hoax, the propaganda was all about the “power of students to force change.” The president of the University, Tim Wolfe, was targeted, and he quickly resigned.

But the truth is, the University football team forced Wolfe out, and his instant capitulation had nothing to do with racism. It had to do with money. Thirty football players were ready to boycott the team’s next game with BYU, and if they refused to take the field, Missouri would have to pay BYU a million dollars. But that was only the beginning of the $$ problem.

Since 2012, the U of Missouri has been part of the vaunted SEC (Southeastern Conference), the most powerful college football consortium of teams in America. The SEC has 14 member teams in 10 states. In 2014-15, the SEC paid its members $455 million.

If the Missouri football boycott spread to other SEC teams, the whole system could collapse, and this would have repercussions far beyond the SEC. We’re talking television contracts, advertisers, student bodies addicted to football. We’re talking about a “national pastime,” future Bowl games, the whole national playoff system.

Tim Wolfe took about five minutes to decide to resign, once he realized what was at stake. You can bet a few heavy hitters from the television networks and the SEC were on the phone to him, pronto.

Forget Wolfe’s public mea culpa. He was protecting the financial football establishment. He literally took one for the team.

The propaganda, and the ensuing college copycat protests at other schools, like Amherst, “showing solidarity” with the U of Missouri, all lead back to money. To football. To the billion-dollar bonanza industry that must not be derailed. As soon as Wolfe resigned, the Missouri student who was on a protest hunger strike (his father reportedly makes $8 million a year) started eating again. The football players went back on the field and got ready for their next game.

All the hoopla and propaganda about a moral victory against racism is a sham. It was a victory for football.

And you have to wonder: If the Missouri team was undefeated, on the verge of securing a spot in the national playoffs, instead of sporting a mediocre 5-4 record at the time, would 30 players have threatened to boycott their next game and risked taking themselves out of the championship picture? I doubt it.

Propaganda: it can be used in the aftermath of a disaster to promote an ongoing agenda, or it can be used to explain (wrongly) why something happened, in order to promote an ongoing agenda.

It works like magic when the target audience is uninformed and incurious.

What today’s college activism is all about

What today’s college activism is all about

And the revolt against the empire

by Jon Rappoport

“Major pysops often contain the element of diversion. That is, the agents and propagandists are taking attention away from something they want to fall down the memory hole. This is particularly true when the thing-to-be forgotten was once a huge threat to the establishment. That thing must fade into oblivion. It must never surface again. So the people who could make it surface again are led into multiple distractions: substitutes for the real thing.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

In the 1960s, there was a fearful and terrible thing called college activism.

It was fearful and terrible for the US war machine, during the Vietnam disaster.

From that moment, the establishment decided: this must never happen again.

Flash forward to today. Political movements on college campuses—many of them funded by college cash—are all about anything and everything EXCEPT a revolt against:

The State;

The war machine;

Destructive mega-corporations.

This is no accident.

It’s a large op.

A diversionary op.

Student groups on campuses are pitted against each other as they battle for college funding.

Students operate under a cloud of government loans so huge they have to preoccupy themselves with a future in which they are basically debtors, trying to pay off the $$.

As a result of multiple Globalist treaties (e.g., NAFTA, GATT, and the upcoming TPP), the job market in the US is deeply depressed. Therefore, debtor students have to focus on strategies for landing employment after graduation.

Millions of students are inevitably wrapped up in college courses which, in one form or another, are bankrolled by corporate and government money.

The subliminal message: don’t rock the boat; don’t bite the hand that feeds you; don’t revolt against The Machine.

“Here are some approved issues about which you are permitted to protest. Go to it. But don’t step outside the line.”


power outside the matrix


On top of all this, corporate and government money, which drives the agendas of many college teaching departments, results in curriculum slanted toward officially approved ideas, concepts, paradigms. The result? Students are programmed within narrow parameters.

The good news is: it’s darkest before the dawn.

There are students around the world who can see through all this insanity. They know their education and their college experience are being tilted, slanted, directed, and reduced.

They can imagine something else.

They’re at an age where shoot-for-the-moon still has vivid meaning.

A locked-down society isn’t their dream.

They can turn the op around and begin investigating their own colleges and universities. They can follow the money and find out where it’s coming from. They can expose their schools as arms of the Corporate State. They can support those few professors who buck the tide.

In my previous article, I strongly suggested a target: Monsanto.

That mega-corp has its hands and money deep in the entrails of many colleges. The corruption is foul. It can be rooted out.

Life is never what it seems to be, unless the order of the day is Surrender. There are always new roads and new possibilities.

Most people don’t want to know about that. But some do.

They’re the rebels against the empire.

Subject: College activism around the world against Monsanto

Divest Monsanto

by Jon Rappoport

Once upon a time, there was a thing called college activism that reached outside the borders of the campus and exerted enormous power.

It’s time again.

It’s long past the moment of knowing that Monsanto (and the other GMO/biotech giants) are doing great harm to human health, the land, and small farmers with their GMO crops and pesticides.

College groups need to form, and demand disinvestment from Monsanto.

This means students commanding their colleges and universities, in no uncertain terms, to get rid of every money-trace of Monsanto.

Get rid of, nullify, dump, refuse Monsanto research grants.

Cancel Monsanto-endowed chairs for professors.

Put an end to Monsanto student scholarships.

Sell off all Monsanto stock acquired through investment of college-fund monies. Likewise, cease all investment in trading institutions which in turn hold Monsanto stock.

Stop licensing university-held patents to Monsanto.

Divest. Wipe the slate clean.

Those of us who write for or publish “alternative” news sites should encourage college students to form groups for the expressed goal:

* Dump Monsanto.

* Make colleges Monsanto-free.


power outside the matrix


We’ve all spent time and energy researching, writing, and speaking about the crimes of Monsanto. That research can help college students bring themselves up to speed on the truths that have been buried by the mainstream press and government cronies of Monsanto.

Why not crash the monopolist’s party?

These days, giant corporations have their hands (holding out cash) deeply embedded in college affairs. Monsanto is an egregious example.

Suppose colleges reject that cash. Reject Monsanto.

Are students willing?

Let’s find out.

Are they willing to dig in and discover all the sources of Monsanto money infecting their colleges?

Would they be willing to boycott professors who are being funded by Monsanto?

Let’s find out.

Can the revolt against Monsanto have activist legs on college campuses?

Is this kind of activism dead, or just dormant?

Is there is a sleeping giant who can awaken?

Let’s find out.

If just a few college groups start the ball rolling, we can give them enough global publicity and support to inform and inspire college students around the world.

NSA alive&well at colleges: code MDA-904

NSA alive&well at colleges: code MDA-904

by Jon Rappoport

November 11, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

These days, students are, for the most part, oblivious to how their colleges and universities are funded.

I’m not talking about donations from graduates and boosters, or revenue generated from televised football games. I’m talking, for example, about secretive government agencies.

CIA, NSA, DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency).

At Wikileaks, Julian Assange posted an overview (10/7/2007), “On the take and loving it—academic recipients of the US intelligence budget.”

Consider Assange’s stunning conclusion: “Over the last decade, U.S intelligence funding of academic research has taken on cavalier, even brazen qualities. This article reveals over 3,000 National Security Agency and over 100 Defense Intelligence Agency funded papers and draws attention to recent unreported revelations of CIA funding for torture research.”

Torture research. If people need evidence that the CIA’s MKULTRA is still alive, there it is.

Assange: “The NSA has pushed tens or hundreds of millions into the academy through research grants using one particular grant code. NSA funding sources are often nakedly, even proudly, declared in research papers (‘I may be nothing, but look, a big gang threw me a sovereign’). Some researchers try to conceal or otherwise downplay the source using accepted covers, weasel words and acronyms, yet commonality in the NSA grant code prefix makes all these attempts transparent. The primary NSA grant-code prefix is MDA904.”

“An examination of academic papers referencing the code gives the impression that most or all research grantees know the true source of their funding. These are not academics who have been fooled. These are willing, even eager, participants.”

The NSA uses a number of “contracting and grant making light covers,” Assange writes. Among them: Maryland Procurement Office, Department of Defense, DOD, ARDA.”

Naturally, all the NSA grants to academics are for research on how to spy. Don’t be fooled by the numerous NSA awards for work in abstract mathematics. The NSA’s interest in math per se is zero. The Agency seeks to apply the research to universal snooping.

College students who claim to be activists can dig into records and discover what grants the NSA is making to their professors.

The students can name names. They can make the facts public on campus and stage protests and sit-ins. They can demand de-funding and cutting NSA relationships. They can boycott those professors’ classes.

During the last decade, students have been directed toward certain causes and away from others. The creation of the politically correct student has been a priority for “progressive” players.

Researching and responding to outside funding hasn’t been on the radar. In particular, Pentagon, pharmaceutical, corporate agriculture, and intelligence-agency money has been ignored.

This needs to change—if college students still have the IQ to understand the problem and react to it.

A quick search led me to two high-ranked American colleges, Bard and Claremont McKenna. Bard openly offers its faculty assistance in applying for grants. Among the funding sources listed: NSA.

An article at the Claremont McKenna site celebrates a $40,000 NSA grant to Professor Lenny Fukshansky, a mathematician, to further his work in “Analytic techniques and algebraic constructions in geometric lattice theory.”

Nothing to see there, students. It’s just lattices. How could NSA use them, other than to hang plants in their offices to brighten the environment?

“Hi, I’m Professor Genius-IQ Doofus. I work for the Surveillance State. Don’t bother putting down your cell phones while you’re in class. The NSA is spying on you through them, and I’m helping the NSA. Now let’s learn some math.”
