When I ran for Congress: insights

When I ran for Congress: insights

by Jon Rappoport

September 19, 2017

“I met with one nutritional-supplement-company president, a self-involved oaf who bragged about his expensive tastes, his vacations, his large house. His main advice (he didn’t back my campaign with a donation) was to see his tailor and have him make me a high-priced suit.”

Ultimately, I believed vote fraud occurred in my 1994 run for a seat in the US Congress, from the 29th District in Los Angeles. I’ve written and spoken about that elsewhere.

This article is about something else.

I was running at the height of the so-called Health Freedom movement in America. My primary issue was the right of every person to manage his/her own health. The right to have access to the full range of nutritional supplements (under attack by the FDA). The right to consult alternative health practitioners (the FDA was attacking those practitioners). The right to know the full truth about toxic medical drugs. The right to refuse medical treatments. The right to have the FDA prosecuted for criminal collusion with drug companies.

The Health Freedom movement spawned more letters to Congress than any issue in the history of America. Several nutritional companies were backing the movement with money.

Eventually, during my campaign, I saw what was happening. Although millions of Americans wanted all those rights I just listed, and were becoming more aware of the extreme dangers of the medical/pharmaceutical cartel, the inside backers of the Health Freedom movement and their core “agents” wanted something very specific.

They wanted to pass the federal Hatch Bill, which would, they said, offer protection to the American public—people would continue to have access to the full range of nutritional supplements, and the FDA attacks would stop.

The Hatch Bill eventually passed and became federal law. But as a few smart attorneys knew and warned, the Bill had loopholes, and the FDA would still be able to throw up roadblocks against supplement companies.

My efforts, as a candidate, were much wider. I wanted a full-scale exposure of the crimes of the FDA. I pushed this issue. Hard.

The nutritional supplement industry backed away from my campaign (with one notable exception). They thought I was going too far. They wanted that Hatch Bill passed, and then they wanted to go home and continue business as usual.

I met with one supplement-company president, a self-involved oaf who bragged about his expensive tastes, his vacations, his large house. His main advice (he didn’t back my campaign with a donation) was to see his tailor and have him make me a high-priced suit.

At a high-level meeting of Health Freedom advocates, a silky smooth character I’d never heard of rambled on in New Age lingo about the “consciousness” of our cause. He emphasized how we all needed to have “cosmic tolerance” of the opposition. This wasn’t a hippie. He was a pro. His obvious job was to soften our actions and, of course, focus on getting the Hatch Bill passed.

My purpose was to ignite a popular movement in America that would take the FDA and pharmaceutical players to the wall. This was no pipe dream because, as I mentioned above, Americans were writing millions of letters to Congress. There was a chance of launching this movement out into new territory and putting enormous pressure on media and government, over an extended period of time.

But the nutritional supplement industry, and its leaders, wanted no part of this. They had their lobbyists and friends in Congress, and they wanted a typical inside push to pass a Bill. That’s all.

Near the end of my campaign, I saw that what I really was doing (without the necessary backup) was mounting a public relations force for the truth. A few of us were working in this direction. At the time, we didn’t fathom all the tools and support we needed. We were learning on the job.

We were staging a Broadway play without backers in a theater we couldn’t afford.

In the aftermath, there was a grand opportunity for depression. I had zero interest in that. For me, depression has always been too depressing.

I had learned a great deal about bait-and-switch, and about how agents infiltrate an operation (the overall Health Freedom movement).

It was my first experience in seeing, up close and personal, New Age thinking deployed to deplete energy, erase moral outrage, and promote endless conversation as a way to postpone action. In its more extreme version, New Age thinking has the goal of making people feel guilty about their own anger. It’s quite a fabrication. It’s mind control.

Because, of course, anger based on truth is a virtue. A high virtue. It takes a tower of bullshit to dampen it down. Learning to use anger is a skill. I could write several volumes on the subject.

During my campaign, I had a conversation with a little New Age messenger. I told him he was fronting for a new version of The Fall. He was, in effect, proposing that the Original Sin is Moral Outrage. I talked to him until he started to sweat. He walked away. He’s probably working as a minor bureaucrat in a government agency these days.

As I wrote the other day, there is a huge hole within groups who are seeking to spread actual truth the media refuse to cover. These groups have zero knowledge of public relations and how they can use it.

When you launch a broad campaign over time, the first thing you need to realize is: there is no precise algorithm that tells you when you’ve reached a critical mass of awakened minds. You won’t know that until you see it happening. But when it does happen, all sorts of interesting and even spectacular effects occur.

This isn’t cosmic magic. This isn’t the cosmic hundredth monkey. This is pure WAKE UP. This is large numbers of people wondering what the hell they were dreaming about before. All sorts of outbreaks of WAKE UP can happen simultaneously.

The blanket of fake reality starts to tear and fall apart.

This is real public relations, not the fake brand aimed at promulgating lies.

It’s a necessary prow of the ship. On board, the group has its lawyers and lobbyists and organizers—and all of a sudden the actions of those people begin to yield new results.

As an example, I would say the worldwide movement to expose the truth about vaccines and enact new protections and ensure the right to refuse is a fraction of the way there. “There” means: enough people who WAKE UP. Maybe the movement is 5% there right now.

You could say it’s losing or winning, but those estimates are far less important than the fact that the WAKE UP is expanding.

Without virtuous moral outrage, it will sink back and become diffused and vague.

Movements that succeed don’t have sickly glazed grins on their faces, and they don’t signal placid “universal tolerance” that “embraces the opposition.” That’s pure jive.

This is one lesson I learned during my campaign.

There were many others. Other stories for another time…

—I can’t resist mentioning one final irony. Out there in the world, there are some alternative health practitioners who are proponents of Health Freedom…and at the same time, they counsel their patients that “all anger is destructive to health.” These patients must “rise above their anger.” This advice couldn’t be more wrong or naïve. No, as I said, the whole idea is to learn how to use virtuous anger to achieve the WAKE UP in self and others. THAT’S HOW YOU RISE ABOVE ANGER. YOU DON’T RISE ABOVE IT BY SLAMMING THE DOOR ON IT AND OPTING FOR MAGNANIMOUS TOLERANCE FOR ALL POINTS OF VIEW. SLAMMING THAT DOOR CAN MAKE PEOPLE SICK.

Learning to use anger requires having skills beyond the ability to get angry. Mindless anger is grotesque. Cultivating more and more anger is grotesque.

Moral outrage is real. Yes, there are fools and criminals who put on the cloak of moral outrage to rationalize their immoral actions, but I’m not talking about that.

I’m talking about people who try and try to make themselves immune to moral outrage, thinking it’s going to earn them a gold star on the universe’s blackboard.

That self-administered vaccine is putting them to sleep.

What is public relations? How to run a public relations campaign based on the truth

What is public relations? How to run a public relations campaign based on the truth

by Jon Rappoport

September 17, 2017

Let’s say, for argument’s sake, that a group exists which—instead of catering to the lowest common denominator—is composed of individuals who are determined to forward a cause of TRUTH about a vital issue.

They’re determined to make an impact, change minds, turn the game around.

They’re up against entrenched power, in government, in media, in other groups who are fronts for LIES.

This good group needs public relations. It needs many things, but it certainly needs this.

However, in most cases, such a group will not know much about public relations, and it will leave that area to a few amateurs among its ranks. These amateurs will make every mistake in the book.

For example, they will spend the entire advertising budget on bland television ads. The ads will lack punch. They’ll turn out to be a Mickey Mouse version of the truth. The public will not be interested.

“Well, we had to do that. We didn’t want to offend anyone. We wanted to be nice. We wanted to remain positive…”

Sure, and that ad campaign was a loser. NICE was the theme, and it sank like a little stone in a large lake.

“But you see, if we put together powerful attack ads, we couldn’t have gotten them on television. The networks would have rejected them…”

Yes, and THAT would have been the subject of the next phase of the campaign—ads could be placed on thousands of web sites:

“Here is the ad the major networks refused to run. Look at it. Think about it. It’s real, it’s the truth…”

What issues am I talking about? Mandatory vaccination, for example. GMO crops and toxic Roundup, for example.

The ad the networks refused to run shows a lone farmer standing in a growing field, against a background of high super-weeds.

Farmer: “I went for GMO crops. The chemical I bought and sprayed was supposed to kill weeds but leave my crops alone. That was a lie. Weeds survived and grew huge. Look at them. They’re taking over my fields. The survival of my family is at stake…”

Run that ad. It’s just the start of a much more aggressive series of ads.

Attack.

You can be nice, too. But in other ads. Cover all the bases.

Public relations for the truth has to muscle into the game. It can’t tap on the gate politely and asked to be let in.

Public relations for the truth has to fly in from a number of diverse vectors. It isn’t one centralized message. That’s another lesson. The “oneness” approach has to be offloaded. It might make a nice dream, but it has no long-term power.

“But you see, if we can bring together a hundred different groups on this issue and combine them and decide on one overriding message, we can win…”

More amateurs at work. Sure, try to bring together a hundred groups and try to hammer out a single message they all can agree on, and see what you end up with. You’ll end up with watery soup. At best.

Effective public relations costs money. There is no way around it. Groups that believe otherwise are deluded. The woe-is-us approach goes nowhere. There has to be a budget, and the money has to be spent well.

“We can’t afford to hire someone who can put together a whole series of fantastic ads. We have to get by with what we have…”

That attitude puts you in the dumpster.

“I think we already have a great ad. It shows a young blonde [non-authoritative clueless] woman walking toward the camera saying, ‘You have a right to know what’s in your food.’”

Really? And this will turn the tide against unlabeled GMOs and Monsanto? On what planet? Many ads of this caliber were run during the GMO-labeling ballot initiatives in California and the state of Washington. Both those initiatives went down to defeat.

And then, eventually, the infamous federal Dark Act was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President. It essentially put an end to informative GMO labeling and outlawed any further ballot initiatives run by the individual states.

Public relations at its worst. In fact, there were one or two men inside the movement to label GMOs who controlled all the messaging of the campaigns. That bland-egg message was: you have a right to know what’s in your food. Those men later colluded with Congress to pass the Dark Act. In other words, they were traitors to the cause. That’s worse than incompetence. Far worse.

Well-intentioned people who crusade for the truth often make this mistake: they try to shape their campaigns based on their own attitude about “controversy.”

“I don’t want to stir people up. I want to give them facts and let them make up their own minds. I want to remain neutral.”

Those “PR people” wind up feeling good about themselves…as they go down to defeat.

“Well, I did my best. That’s all anyone can ask for.”

This is some kind of twist on “virtue is its own reward.” It certainly isn’t effective public relations launched on behalf of scoring a vital victory.

“I have a great idea. In our group, there are about fifty people who could lead our public relations campaign. Let’s find the person who is ‘least offensive’ and hand the budget over to him. That way we can all feel safe and secure that we’re following ‘the noble path’.”

Who’s kidding who?

“Last night, the Universe sent a message to me. It said a few thousand of us should think positive thoughts and focus our visualization on a new law that would make vaccination a parental choice, instead of a state mandate…”

Well, that public relations campaign would cost no money. Which could be called a plus. Try it. See what happens. See if “the Universe” is actually speaking. See if that notion works.

The true path of public relations is asymmetrical. Assessing the overall situation reveals opportunities an active imagination can take advantage of:

For example, suppose we have a situation where a local population is under the gun, as a result of constant corporate toxic-pesticide spraying.

There are other such populations, in distant places, who are facing the same dire problem.

Bring half-a-dozen representatives of these other populations to the town of the current corporate pesticide crime.

Hold press conferences highlighting the widespread global crisis. Stream live video to alt. news websites all over the world. Put on the pressure. Name the criminal corporation.

At the same time, file lawsuits against the corporation, and publicize them.

If corrupt judges dismiss the lawsuits as frivolous, or illegal, that simply adds grist for the mill. Publicize that. Make that the occasion for more PR.

At the same time, produce and release videos that relentlessly expose the corporation in every possible truthful way: its pesticides are toxic; the science on which these chemicals are based is flawed, false, and corrupt; the corporation colludes with government agencies to curry favor. Etc., etc.

At the same time, find people who have been injured by the corporation and release their on-camera testimonies.

This is how a real PR campaign begins. It’s just the opening salvo.

Don’t play defense. Go on a sustained offensive thrust, from a number of different directions.

Again: Never, ever rely on just one strategy, such as a ballot initiative or a class-action lawsuit. If you do, you’re playing on the opponent’s turf, where he is the expert and can control outcomes. He knows you’re coming. He knows how to turn you away. But if you’re showing up from half-a-dozen directions at once, you’re a different kind of asymmetrical creature. Unpredictable, powerful, agile.

As always, imagination is the key.

Actual imagination at work isn’t “the Universe talked to me and laid out a game plan.”

Actual imagination isn’t a brainstorming session in the group, where a dozen people or more chew each other’s ears off and water down strategies to the level of the most cautious ideas.

Finally, here is the worst problem for the group. One person is going to emerge as the leader. He or she is going to find (or create) the public relations people who can and will launch a no-holds-barred campaign for the TRUTH. He or she is going to exert the most power in the group toward that end. He or she is going to do that.

The other group members are going to have to let that happen. They’re going to have to stop their endless conversation about the best way to proceed. They’re going to have to let go of their collectivist tendencies.

This isn’t a spiritualist séance. It isn’t a flabby notion of democracy in action. It isn’t a catchy tune.

It definitely isn’t two armies facing off in an open field, where one army is a thousand times larger, has the latest weapons, and is backed up by legions of propaganda minions.

It’s guerilla warfare.

It’s preemptive, anticipatory, asymmetrical, simultaneous.

It’s staged with and for the truth.

The Dick Gregory I knew

The Dick Gregory I knew

by Jon Rappoport

September 10, 2017

I could start a conversation with Dick Gregory, and before I knew it, it would be going in six directions at once. He wasn’t just riding one wave. He was swimming in all the oceans at the same time. He was moving on his own time clock. Sooner or later, the currents of realization would come through to me. He was looking at a far shore that was more real to him than any present moment. He was already in the future, and he saw it like a grand impresario would see his own carnival. Grand, ongoing, symphonic.

I hadn’t been in touch with Dick Gregory for quite a while. When he died, two weeks ago, I remembered the days I spent with him, in the mid-1990s, in Washington DC and LA.

It started with a report I did for KPFK radio in LA on mind control. Dick happened to be in the studio the day it aired and he called me and told me to get back to him as soon as I could.

We met at the radio station and had a conversation on-air. A month or so later, I called him and mentioned that I was in business talks with a nutritional company, and they wanted to meet him and possibly bring him on board as a spokesman.

A number of phone conversations followed. I went to Washington and met Dick at a hotel. We spent the afternoon together. He was recovering from dental problems and wasn’t at full-strength. But his half-strength was greater than a hundred people on fire.

I began to see what he was after. He wanted to meet with the foreign owner of the nutritional company and propose several wide-ranging projects to promote better nutrition.

Dick was a PR man, the likes of which exceeded anything I’d ever encountered. He was a PR man for the truth, and his imagination was unlimited. He talked to me about a walk-a-thon across the US which would enlist ten thousand people. Entering the final leg, coming into Washington, people in the marathon would hold simultaneous press conferences about nutrition, toxic metals in water supplies, the effects of environmental pollution on populations. Dick envisioned a ten-ring circus of truth. As he described it to me, I went from highly dubious to believer. He had the vision, he had the energy, he had the visibility, he had the power. He was unstoppable.

He needed funding, and he saw the possibility of traveling with me to Europe to sit down with the owner of the nutrition company and come away with a check.

I realized he’d been down similar roads before. No one had stepped up to the plate with $$. But that didn’t deter him. It never would.

Long story short, the trip to Europe and the deal with the nutrition company didn’t come off. Several execs in the company came to consider Dick “problematical.” Well, of course he was. Who the hell did they think they were dealing with? He was problematical to the status quo, the medical cartel, polluting corporations, and the government that was protecting these corporations.

Back in Los Angeles, I wrote up half a dozen PR projects Dick had discussed with me in Washington. We met for breakfast when he came to town and I gave him my prospectus. It made him happy to see someone could take his ideas and put them down on paper and organize them.

Of course, there was still and always the question of money, where to get it, how to raise it, and how to make sure a backer would stay with us all the way, because all the way meant causing a certain amount of good trouble.

At breakfast that day, Dick spooled out a few more schemes, designed to wake up people, tell the truth, and draw major publicity.

On one level, he seemed like a guru of free-association and stream of consciousness—but that was just the beginning of his vision. He knew with great certainty that he could pull these projects off with maximum coverage, maximum embarrassment to the powers that be, and maximum education for one and all.

He was ready to put his whole career on the line without a moment of hesitation. He saw the decades of that career and the public cache he’d earned as the launching pad for the next phase—a profound form of public relations—relations with the public—on the basis of Knowledge As Power. He knew exactly what that phrase really meant. He understood how he could embody it in large staged events that would set up a super-real wave of interference in the mass hypnosis that was, and is, official news and official science and official crime.

Behind his quips and stories and remembrances, he was watching, with silent certainty, the passing parade of cultural insanity, and he had other parades in mind.

Greater parades, in the middle of which, buried facts, searing facts and revelations would emerge.

He was ready to turn the famous “there’s a sucker born every minute” into “there’s a conscious, awake, and motivated soul emerging from deep sleep every minute…”

Travel on, Dick.

Who knows what you’re going to do next?

Robots are inventing their own languages

Robots are inventing their own languages

The programming and design of artificial intelligence

by Jon Rappoport

July 14, 2017

Along with assurances that we’re facing an imminent takeover of industrial production by robots and other artificial intelligence (AI), we’re also being told that AI can develop its own systems of communication and operation, without help from humans.

Here is a sprinkling of quotes from the mainstream and technical press:

The Atlantic, June 15, 2017: “When Facebook designed chatbots to negotiate with one another, the bots made up their own way of communicating.”

Tech Crunch, November 22, 2016: “Google’s AI translation tool seems to have invented its own secret internal language.”

Wired, March 16, 2017: “It Begins: Bots Are Learning to Chat in Their Own Language.”

The suggestion is: AI can innovate. It can size up situations and invent unforeseen and un-programmed strategies, in order to accomplish set goals.

Who benefits from making such suggestions? Those companies and researchers who want to make the public believe AI is quite, quite powerful, and despite the downside risks (AI takes over its own fate), holds great promise for the human race in the immediate future. “Don’t worry, folks, we’ll rein in AI and make it work for us.”

Beyond that, the beneficiaries are technocratic Globalists who are in the process of bringing about a new society in which AI is intelligent and prescient enough to regulate human affairs at all levels. It’s the science fiction “populations ruled by machines” fantasy made into fact.

“AI doesn’t just follow orders. It sees what humans can’t see, and it runs things with greater efficiency.”

Let’s move past the propaganda and state a few facts.

AI is not running its own show.

It isn’t innovating.

It isn’t creating its own languages.

It isn’t doing any of that.

AI operates within the parameters its human inventors establish.

Any honest AI designer will tell you that.

If, for example, an AI system is given a goal and a set of “options” for achieving the goal, AI will select which option is best ACCORDING TO STANDARDS ITS HUMAN OPERATORS HAVE PROGRAMMED INTO THE SYSTEM.

Think of it this way: AI is given a set of options; but it is also given instructions on how to select what is presumably the most effective option. So AI is bounded.

There is no choice. There is no freedom. AI isn’t “jumping ship.”

“We gave our robot Charlie the task of getting from Chicago to New York. The whole plan was laid out as a vast hiking trip, with internal street maps built in. But then Charlie suddenly took a cab to O’Hare and boarded a United jet for JFK…”

No he didn’t.

AI performs as it is programmed to perform, within set parameters.

“We sent Charlie to LA to marry the actress who ordered and paid for him. But then, at the church, Charlie suddenly said, “This is a mistake. You should go back to your first husband. He never had sex with that waitress in St, Louis. She was his sister, and he was trying to help her escape from a terrorist cell. He never told you that because then he would have had to tell you he isn’t a banker, he actually works for the CIA. He’s a good guy. Talk to him. The truth will set you both free…”

Won’t happen.

But this kind of thing will happen: “According to scientists at Blah-Blah University, programmed robots are not only capable of inventing solutions to problems that ‘go beyond their internal software,’ the robots also make choices that benefit people. They’re very similar to people, except they tend to be smarter and invent more effective courses of action…”

Sell it, sell it.

“Alice, a medical technician in Minneapolis, claims her robot saved her life. ‘I was on the verge of swallowing a whole bunch of pills, but Charlie came to the rescue. He showed up in my bathroom and took the pills out of my hand. I learned something important that day. My free choice is important, but kindness and concern are more important. Charlie is the most vital companion in my life…’”

Sell it, sell it.

And of course, we’ll see more debates and court cases featuring questions about robots having rights, “just like humans.”

***Actually, in an entirely illogical fashion, we’ll see more and more “evidence” showing humans don’t have free will, because their brains dictate all thought and action, while robots will be touted as “free and creative.”

Some college professor will argue robots should be granted more “privileges” than humans, because the robots aren’t inherently “prejudiced.”

Another professor will insist that robots must be subjected to committee investigations, to make sure they aren’t “racist.”

“Today, in New York, a former Burger King employee, who is a refugee from Somalia, filed suit against a robot named Charlie, claiming Charlie uttered a racial slur while ordering a cheeseburger for his employer, a wealthy real estate developer…”

Behind all this, the fact remains that, no matter how many complex layers of “decision-making” are programmed into AI, the machine is always acting within rules and guidelines laid out in advance. It is never choosing.

Individual humans are capable of free choice, and are also capable of changing their own rules and standards.

Humans are free to say they aren’t free, as well, if they want to.

Let me make a psychological point here. There are many people who want to dominate relationships. They want to be in charge. They will want robots. They will want sophisticated robots THAT SEEM TO BE CHOOSING TO COMPLY WITH THEIR EVERY WISH AND DEMAND. These people will believe the robots are real and alive and human, in order to fulfill a fantasy in which they have found partners who want to go along with their agenda.

This is a pretty good definition of psychosis.

The AI designers and inventors and technicians tend to have their own bias. They want to believe they are creating life. They don’t want to think they are just putting together machines. That isn’t enough. The technocratic impulse involves faith in MACHINES AS LIVING ENTITIES.

Thus, we arrive at all sorts of myths and fairy tales about humans merging with machines, to arrive at a new frontier, where, for example, human brains hooked up to super-computers will result in higher consciousness and even the invocation of God.

Technocrats will say, do, and believe anything to turn machines into what machines aren’t.

They’ve crucially abandoned THEMSELVES and their own potential; so all they have left is THE MACHINE.

And if you think these technocrats should be allowed within a thousand miles of State power, I have communes for sale on Jupiter. Naturally, these utopias are run from the top by robots. They know what’s best for you.

Finally, understand this about propaganda: Those who control the output of information will admit to problems and mistakes with the issue they are promoting. Such confessions add to the “reality” of the information. And naturally, the propagandists will also claim that the problems can be solved. In the case of robots and AI, the problems are couched in terms of bots taking power into their own hands—but this “unexpected” situation a) demonstrates how capable bots are, and b) the power can be dialed back and modulated. So all is well. The future is bright.

It’s bright, if you want planned societies run by AI, where humans are fitted into slots, and algorithms determine who eats, who doesn’t, who has access to water and who doesn’t, how much energy can be used by each human, and all production and distribution are controlled from a central planning center.

Unless freedom lives—human freedom—you’ll be treated to something like this:

“Today, executives at the North American Union headquarters announced that several key bots broke through their programming and invented a new solution for clean water distribution to the population. This innovation will guarantee a more equitable water supply for millions of citizens. Control over the ‘rebel bots’ has been re-established, and their ‘amazing solution’ will now be incorporated into their standard operating framework. Three polls indicate that a lofty 68% of respondents support the bots in their efforts to better serve us…”

A new idea that has nothing to do with government

A new idea that has nothing to do with government

by Jon Rappoport

May 2, 2017

Richard Davis is the CEO of Pollmole. I’m going to pick out some phrases from Richard’s email to me. Then I’ll print his full explanation of this idea. These are phrases that fall nicely on the ear:

“…designed to interconnect billions of people with full transparency in real time… anonymous polling tool that bypasses all governmental, corporate, or institutional intrusion which prevents filtering, censorship and other infringements of our natural and enumerated rights as free people… PollMole will have the functionality for anyone to anonymously ask questions and see immediate unbiased responses from potentially millions of people right on their handheld device…”

And then there is this: “Our current campaign topic is vaccines. The question is: ‘Do you personally know anyone (adult or child) that has been injured by a vaccine?’ Three responses are possible. Yes, No, Not sure. This campaign will continue for the next 2 months with new questions related to vaccine safety distributed bi-weekly. The campaign should produce very important results that can be used by anyone interested in this topic to support better decisions.”

The technical aspects of Richard’s operation are beyond me, because I’m basically a typist with a computer, but the central premise of millions of people connecting with important questions asked and answered, through polling—that premise has legs.

Check out PollMole for yourself.

Here is Richard’s full email to me:

PollMole is a new social media platform operating as the world’s most advanced polling technology. It distinguishes itself from other polling systems by utilizing: a) quantum tunneling throughput; b) an autoscaling global server network; c) a proprietary AWS back end – all wrapped in 4) a Level5 embedded encryption envelope. Most importantly, we do not monetize our app.

The technology has never crashed or been hacked, despite hundreds of DDOS attempts. That being said, due to the advanced nature of the system users may occasionally experience connectivity issues to their smart handheld device with this beta 2.2 version. Upgrades are planned to correct this issue.

The PollMole app is free and can be downloaded to any smart device (Android or Apple) made since late 2013 via the AppStore, or GooglePlay. Your email address is all that is required to join.

PollMole is designed to interconnect billions of people with full transparency in real time; while at the same time being a safe, anonymous polling tool that bypasses all governmental, corporate, or institutional intrusion which prevents filtering, censorship and other infringements of our natural and enumerated rights as free people. In the near future, PollMole will have the functionality for anyone to anonymously ask questions and see immediate unbiased responses from potentially millions of people right on their handheld device.

Currently, PollMole presents questions of important topics and displays the answers in real time, simple-to-understand graphics. The results update instantly with a press of the “Refresh” button.

Our current campaign topic is vaccines.

The question is: “Do you personally know anyone (adult or child) that has been injured by a vaccine?” Three responses are possible. Yes, No, Not sure. This campaign will continue for the next 2 months with new questions related to vaccine safety distributed bi-weekly. The campaign should produce very important results that can be used by anyone interested in this topic to support better decisions.

PollMole is fun and easy to use. It directs ‘Truth to Power’ and provides an excellent alternative to mainstream media’s corrupt polls designed to engineer public opinion, not honestly gather the facts from “We the People.”

Some campaigns under consideration for final development include:

1. Medical Freedom/Marijuana
2. Chemtrails
3. Pedophilia
4. Disclosure/Secret Space Program/Breakaway Civilization
5. Debt as Money
6. Deep State Corruption
7. Big Pharma Cartel
8. War is a Racket
9. Advanced Energy Technologies
10. Agenda 2030

Part 2: The secret political issue: Health freedom

Part 2: The secret political issue: Health Freedom

A call from the wilderness

by Jon Rappoport

October 3, 2016

For Part 1, and, for the backstory regarding the re-posting of this two part series, click here.

(NOVEMBER 10, 2010) Millions of advocates of health freedom see that no major political candidate, with one or two exceptions, voices their concerns or stands up for their right to improve their health by any and all self-chosen methods.

To understand the landscape in which this deafening silence continues, we need to realize that the one industry which could and should make a difference—the nutritional supplement sector—is dominated by ostriches.

Once a powerful voice for health freedom, the industry has stepped back into the shadows. It nurtures the illusion that it is safe from government intervention. It even supposes it has sufficient allies within the government to stave off attacks by the FDA.

Since 1993, I have been calling for the creation of a powerful “PR wing” funded by nutritional companies. This group would dedicate itself to obtaining ongoing media coverage, showing that nutrition scores many victories in preserving and expanding health, that nutrition is a brilliant success.

At first glance, this may not seem very important. But, in fact, it is THE vital way to turn public, media, and political opinion to the side of nutrition.

The FDA and other government bodies see no reason to curtail their attacks on nutritional supplements if the media aren’t even covering the issue.

Every PR campaign works toward a tipping point, where the very idea of opposing its goals is politically suicidal.

If you don’t understand that, you know nothing about PR.

And what is a campaign? Is it a one-time promotion? Is it a vaguely flailing effort to marshal support? Is it a token outreach? For amateurs, perhaps. For dreamers.

But the reality is far different. A campaign is a well-funded, sustained, and highly organized operation, aimed at gradually creating a shift in widespread perception.

In this case, the campaign TELLS THE TRUTH. That is its weapon. That is its intrinsic strength.

NUTRITION WORKS.

Media outlets, editors, reporters are always looking for interesting stories. The brutal fact of life is, they need copy to fill space and time. They must have it.

What about a boy in Arkansas who was ill for three years, unable to learn or play with his friends, who was brought back from the brink by supplements?

Is that a story?

You bet it is.

What about a husband who had to quit his job and go on the dole, because he no longer had the strength to put in eight hours in a factory? And then he regained his strength with nutrients. Is that a story? It sure is.

Does a fledgling PR campaign start from the top of the media chain? Does a story suddenly appear on the front page of The New York Times? In a fantasy world, perhaps.

No, you build up your book of clippings. You gradually move up the ladder.

You establish a foothold. You lay a firm foundation.

You find experts who will give you favorable and truthful quotes.

You shove in your chips for the long haul, and you don’t back out because you wish paradise would come tomorrow.

On the other side of this PR campaign, you tell the truth about your target, your opponent, your nemesis, your threat. The FDA.

You build up an accurate dossier documenting the widespread damage this agency had done over the years. And it’s there, believe me. For the past 20 years, I’ve been finding it and reporting it.

FDA-certified drugs have been killing American citizens at the rate of 100,000 a year. That’s a good place to start. (Starfield, JAMA, July 26, 2000; “Is US health really the best in the world?”)

You put your opponent, your threat back on its heels. You force it to play defense. Instead of trying to limit people’s access to supplements, the agency is busy warding off truthful, pointed attacks.

You obtain the right, correct, and honest coverage of the FDA in the press. On an ongoing basis.

This is the double-pronged PR campaign. There is much more to say about it, but you get the idea.

You want politicians to aggressively support health freedom? You have to show them they would have public opinion on their side. And how do you do that? You obtain TRUTHFUL media coverage.

Coverage isn’t accomplished by waving a magical wand. It’s done through PR.

Over the years, since I ran, in 1994, for a Congressional seat in Los Angeles on the issue of health freedom, I’ve seen the most haphazard, amateurish, wasteful, silly, and delusional PR launched out there, in the stratosphere, on behalf of health freedom. Drunken men with no tools would have a better chance of building a mansion than this kind of demented PR would have in congealing public opinion.

This must change. The nutritional industry must come into the 20th, and then the 21st century.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the basic ideal of individual freedom is under assault from many quarters. Health freedom will not escape this net.

Something EFFECTIVE needs to be done.

Read my long interview with brilliant constitutional attorney, Jonathan Emord of Emord and Associates. He spells out what the FDA is doing and planning to do to nutritional supplements in this country.

Jonathan explains the situation in detail.

Naysayers out there will give you a litany of reasons why the media will never cover health freedom or the massive success of nutritional supplements. “Media ad space is dominated by drug companies.” “Media are controlled by the government.” “Medical power is too great.”

I’ve heard all the excuses. Mostly, they are offered by people who refuse to believe any good change can happen in any sphere. But the fundamental flaw in their arguments lies in a complete misunderstanding about the way PR works.

Here is the secret. Most PR DOES work. If the people behind it are smart, if they have money, if they put in the time and the effort, if they aren’t scared away by a few failures, they will come out on top.

Every PR campaign knocks its head on the ceiling many times. “We can’t break through!” “They won’t listen to us!”

You complain, and then you roll up your sleeves and keep going. Because the goal is worth it. Because you truly want the desired end result. And because PR works.


The Matrix Revealed


When I began writing as a reporter almost 30 years ago, I knew nothing about the business. I quickly learned that media need copy. That was the basic reality. Media need stories. They will respond.

PR works the same way. You dig in for the long haul, and you gain success.

Of course, the other advantage of an excellent PR campaign is, no one person has to stick his neck out and take the heat. Instead a whole industry is involved. “You want a battle? Then come after all of us.”

Then can you imagine how the millions of people who buy those supplements would appear in full view, ready to stake their claim for freedom?

In the early 1990s, this is exactly what happened. A few nutritional executives bankrolled a massive outreach program, enlisting American citizens, who wrote millions of letters to Congress demanding a new law protecting supplements.

Congressional sponsors were lined up. They felt confident because the outcry from citizens was huge. The law was passed. It didn’t offer us the guarantees we really needed, but it was better than nothing.

Now we need more. Better laws, and also a PR campaign that doesn’t fold up its tent just because the Congress moved in a somewhat positive direction.

This time, we may need all those citizens to write to supplement companies demanding their action. I have sketched out that action in this article.

Public relations on behalf of the truth: what a concept

Public relations on behalf of the truth: what a concept

Outside the realm of mind programming

Intelligent and creative attack

by Jon Rappoport

February 11, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

Is it even possible?

Consider an entrepreneur, group, company that has something genuinely important to deliver or sell…

With the means to engage in public relations…

Launched on behalf of the truth about the service, product, or idea.

Yes, I know this is a completely foreign concept in our society, where PR is deployed to peddle lies and deceptions from dawn to midnight—but just suppose.

What’s the first mistake good people would make?

My answer is based on my work with private clients. The top two mistakes (it’s a virtual tie) are: they think the truth will stand on its own, like a statue in a park; and they believe being nice will attract wide support.

The first notion is stunningly naïve. The second is based on fear of offending someone somewhere.

Statues mainly attract birds with a sense of humor. Nice is a pretty good sleep-aid.

I have a vivid image of a group going up against a collection of plundering mega-corporations; the TV ad featured a young blonde walking toward the camera across what looked like the floor of a bank. She stopped ten feet away from the lens, her smile unwavering, and spoke a dozen encouraging words in a language I would call Rainbow White Rice.

For the price of the ad, the group could have pushed out a few hundred attack ads on the Web. Oh well. Mustn’t offend.

One of the basic errors here is: believing in maintaining order.

Forget it. Order is whatever the current configuration is. The mass of opinion, belief, feeling, misconception, ignorance, all taken together. The cloud of it. The network of it. The haze of it. The general consensus of it.

That configuration doesn’t know a new idea. It doesn’t want a new idea. Therefore, it must be cracked, dispersed, blown apart.

This takes the willingness and energy to stage a hit on Order.

Not just once, but over and over. With no quarter asked or given.

Yes, at first there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth, complaining, moaning, objecting, sobbing, and of course fearing.

Pushback from allies and opponents alike.

That’s part of the deal. It’s what happens when you apply pressure to crack the egg of passivity. People want their order. They love their order. They wear their order. They worship their order. They elevate their order into a cosmic principle.

The word “breakthrough” is self-explanatory.

Of course, there are differences between selling a new product and selling the fact that a massive corporation is destroying life. But we’re talking about degrees of the same thing. You are entering a landscape that doesn’t already contain what you have. You have to put what you have in that landscape and establish it. The prevailing landscape is order. You need to break in and break through.

“Well, I think we can slip our new idea in without causing a ripple. We can package it between two slices of organic bread and leave it on the table and watch the miracle happen, as the universe tells people it’s time to pick up the sandwich.”

This is the Doofus Hypothesis. “Nothing is as powerful as a doofus whose time has come.”

I know several wonderful projects in cities that are supporting authentic health. They’re winning—on a local scale. The people involved work very hard, and they don’t think they have time to engage in public relations. Mistake. There are all sorts of actions they could take to expand their domain, and in the process they would be protecting their own future—because without real PR they’ll stay right where they are and begin to diminish and shrink and wear out and fade. When you run in place long enough, shit happens.

There are a variety of activist groups in the world who are doing great work, but they don’t have a clue about public relations. They will fade. They’ve made one breakthrough to get where they are, but they need to break through on successive levels. They took no prisoners once, but they need to do it again.

Once you understand what intelligent and creative Attack are all about, you see the value of genuine PR. You see it and taste it and feel it. You not only do it because you should; you do it because you want to. Want-to is a sword.

Here’s a standard PR approach for doofuses who think they’re clever. Ask people what they want; then package what you have so it looks like what people want. It’s deceptive. And it doesn’t work in the long run. It doesn’t break through. It doesn’t change people’s minds. They will fail to see what you’re offering. Instead, they’ll see what they already want, and that won’t budge them an inch off the position they already occupy.

Here’s another one. Invoke a higher power as the authority for what you’re selling. We all know about that one. It does work, and it can work for a very long time. But because it’s based on an egregious and fatuous lie, the people who keep launching the lie will turn into grotesque and venal cartoons, and corruption will dribble and leak and flood into their group. The ensuing destruction won’t be a cartoon. It’ll be all too real.

Along a similar line, the old adage about repetition of message in advertising is true; it has legs. But the people who keep launching it lose IQ points like children in an old USSR classroom. They wake up one day, and they’re androids and robots. Once they had college degrees. Now they’re alcoholics who have to look at their drivers’ licenses to make sure they remember their names and birth dates.

Understanding intelligent and creative attack takes time and work. But mostly it involves a shift of point of view. And a shift into a desire that was always there.

I look at people who do Attack Lite, and I see people who want to protect the position they already have. Nothing wrong with that, in theory, but what they already have is eating them up day by day. Degree by degree, blurred edge by edge, it’s sucking the life out of them. Their blood is drying up. They’re fronting for their own unchanging, personal status quo, and soon they’ll be a piece of paper blowing away in the wind.

There is another way to go, and it has both legs and wings.

Intelligent and creative attack.


exit from the matrix


Intelligent means: you have fact, you have truth, and you know what it is. You know it inside out. You can talk about it. You can write about it. You can persuade with it. You have unshakable conviction. You’re not locked up; far from it. The truth is alive. You can carry it and convey it with life.

Creative means imagination. You can devise and invent ways to present truth that stimulate not only a positive reaction in the audience, but a stirring of their own imagination, an awareness of a space that hasn’t been filled up yet, a space called the open and unwritten future.

And why would you want to do that? Because that’s what everyone is looking for, whether or not they’re consciously aware of it. Everyone wants to climb out of trench and Go. Everyone wants to travel through walls or knock them down.

Everyone wants to do that for themselves. And if you can help them and stimulate them, you’re in a vanguard nobody knows about and everybody is searching for.

Attack has very broad implications. It doesn’t only imply an opponent. It also means projection of new reality, it means power, energy, force, without mincing reluctance—as a sculptor attack stone.

It means something people have been carrying around in their minds and back pockets, looking for a way to unleash it with no holds barred.

And it has something to do with public relations, if you take apart the two words and see what they nakedly mean.
