Exposure to fabricated footage can "dramatically alter" individuals' version of events

This 2009 study found that exposure to fabricated footage can "dramatically alter" individuals' version of events, even convincing them to testify as an eyewitness to an event that never happened.

Fake video footage 'persuades half of people to wrongly accuse others of crime'
Fake video footage can persuade almost half of viewers to accuse people of crimes they have not committed, new research suggests.

Lies work, but big lies really work, is true.

They dumb us down so that we will accept new programming, there own!

Remember this old adage?:

Do not believe anything that you see and only half of what you hear.

Thanks Sandra for this great story.

i noticed this article

was written a week after 9/11.

on an unrelated topic, this gives creedence to the no-plane theory that day.

Case in Point:

An illusionist knows his audience. He can take something ordinary and make you think it's extraordinary. He can take a box with a hidden compartment and make you believe a woman has been cut in half; all he has to do is make sure you and everyone else sees him do what he wants you to see him do. Seeing is believing. For the vast majority of lazy, falsely intellectual and spiritually dead citizens, "being shown" is the only type of valid "seeing."

Let's say someone wanted to turn US citizens--already pumped up by their favorite sports teams and violent movies and music--into fearful and compliant pawns using this type of deception. How do you turn a prideful and arrogant people, each convinced of their own superiority, into terrified little pawns? Let's say this "someone" were to fire missiles at both private sector and US government buildings, then doctor news coverage footage of the event as it was happening to make the attack seem more "home-grown." Let's say they superimpose another type of projectile, a jet airplane perhaps, over the footage. Who would believe that a missile strike actually occurred? Nobody. Wouldn't the vast majority be convinced that a "home-grown" attack had take place? Wouldn't this overwhelm citizens into a false fear of "terrorism," rendering them putty in the hands of thugs? Wouldn't this be the perfect process to go about setting up an unconstitutional "patriot act" and to promote an unconstitutional war? Isn't this almost verbatim the process used to forever tarnish the once beautiful history of Germany?

I am convinced that Hitler, from the depths of hell, is looking up at US and smiling.

This "someone" would also need access to vast amounts of money, vast enough to make B. Gates and Oprah blush. Maybe this "someone" has the ability to make his own money? Maybe this "someone" is beyond the cyclical process of wages the rest of us are shackled to?

Welcome to the land of delusions! If America doesn't get more men and women like Ron Paul into its government soon, my advice to you is to get the hell out of Rome--it's about to fall. The barbarians are already running the show, and have been for some time .... And if you don't know Jesus, now's the time to find Him. Chances are good that "someone" won't simply give back what was handed to him without fighting. You won't want to die without Jesus, and living with your eyes open is impossible without spiritual support. I don't mean to say that "Churchianity" will be that support, either. They'll sell you guilt and tell you to work for their forgiveness. They'll tell you to trust whatever polished garbage is handed to you. No, start with the Bible. You can take Jesus and make Him yours, because He died for all of us. Otherwise, get ready to subject yourself to even more delusions as this age moves forward, regardless of what comes of the US...secular humanism is the easiest way to get a person to believe that somebody else deserves more rights than they do. Don't forget that the authors of the Declaration of Independence held these truths to be self-evident, that all men are Created equal and were endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights...

I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for



You Are Being Programmed

Just turn off the tele screen now. Then stop drinking the fluoridated water. Then eliminate all the processed foods from your diet. Eliminate the beer and the dairy which are also laced with the rat poison sodium fluoride. Start carrying a vomit bag After about two months the real world suddenly materializes right before your eyes. This is a one way trip, once your mind breaks through the brainwashing you can't go back.

. Do you remember the scene from the Truman Show where Truman tries to drive to the edge of the city but can't? This is what you are up against. Their programming has a certain amount of inertia. Your brain can't differentiate from their video programming and reality, so it accepts the video as reality and then actually rejects reality!

The mind control system has a safety margin of about two months. You will have to get away from the food, water and TV for about two months before your head clears. You really can't imagine how wrong you are about everything you think you see and think you know. In fact you know almost nothing because you have been programmed/hypnotized not to see the real world when it is put right in front of you. You are suffering from a very sophisticated lifelong program of coordinated brainwashing. Pull up They Live on Hulu and free your mind. Take the Red Pilll now and then wait for it. There is a reason they make everyone in jail watch Tv 14 hours a day.
You are suffering from a lifetime of sophisticated coordinated brainwashing. Take the red pill now.

The Oracle

it's funny because it's true

For the visitors that might read this comment and think this sounds like the rant of a delusional paranoid person, all I have to say is "try it". Drink spring water, eat organic and for buy the more expensive milk. Switch to Tom's of Main's non-fluoridated toothpaste.

You will feel sick, for a while as you detox, but that doesn't last too long. You will develop amazing powers of observation and wonder if you have spent your whole life sleep-walking. You will sleep better and have WAY more energy than you ever have. If I use fluoride toothpaste now, I get a headache...

Today The Truth is Stranger Than Fiction

Yep, it takes about two months to detox the fluoride and calcification out of your Pineal Gland. Four months to really think straight.

I had to do it all over again after they put me on one of their Admiralty Vessels again last year and feed me the poison. You can't even resist them for awhile after they drug you up with that fluoride crap. That's the whole point.

Can you believe Sodium Fluoride is Rat Poison?

It was first used by the Nazis on POWs to make them docile and unable to resist.
Then the camps got liberated and the army used it on their own troops in occupied Berlin!
The U.S. Government feared the Army would come home and oust the Congress, IMF, and BAR banksters so they immediately poisoned Americans drinking water in 1945.
Been there ever since.

The Chinese won't even use it on their slaves, guess why? It reduces intelligence too much.

You also have to avoid milk because some of it is from cows given tap water. The processed foods are all heavily fluoridated as well. Even the fruits are sprayed with fluoridated compounds. And just to make sure Americans who are not drinking municipal water get their daily dose of Soma (1984) it is in the beer and soft drinks. The alcohol may metabolize in a day but the two or three Mg. Of rat poison you self medicated with on your night out will keep you calm under your chains of servitude for awhile.

There are tons of resources out there on the history of the Fluoride poisoning of the people's of Oceana (1984). Google Sodium Fluoride toxicity or I.G. Farben Fluoride history (same guys who made the death camp gas). It is really just the British Crown that uses Rat Poison on it's subjects in America, England, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Ruthless bastards.

You get your natural aggression back when this crap purges from your brain. Also you get your intuition back and the world looks very different almost like the Transition that happens to Roddy Piper in the movie They Live. Check it out now! A classic.

By the way the NWO and their collaborators only drink spring water in glass bottles from two springs in the alps. Go to some upscale restaurants and you will find yourself among the wolves drinking and eating unpoisoned food. Should we be surprised they put poisons and drugs in our feed when all we are is cattle to them?

Clean that crap out of you and wake TF up!

This is so true. Like my own

This is so true. Like my own mother for example. I'll be having an argument with her about something and she will toss a piece of evidence at me that she got based upon some fictional cop or terrorist type TV show. She uses these totally fictional stories as her basis for reality. I don't think TV is bad, it's the fact that the government has created a virtual monopoly on it so that only small group of elite are allowed to control it and they use it to promote their evil agendas. TV it is so dangerous that is either needs to be unregulated so anyone can have their say or the monopoly broadcasters should be required to provide a certain amount of public access programming.

Turn off the TV Propaganda.
Find out what's really going on!

You think Wily Fox News doesn't know about this?

How else should we explain their "honest mistake?" For if we know one thing for certain, there was nothing honest about it!

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.


they call it programming for a reason.

The study, by Warwick University was falsified. Test yourself!

Those researches should refund your ticket.

The study, by Warwick University, found that

almost 50 per cent of people shown false footage of an event they witnessed first hand were prepared to believe the video version rather than what they actually saw.

Lead researcher Dr Kimberley Wade, associate professor of Psychology at Warwick University, said the results were "scary" and showed just how easily an eyewitnesses' account of an event would be distorted.

Bad special effects video: 50%

Take yourself down to the best theater in town, for a premiere performance.

High Quality False Silver Screen Film, in a fancy theater: 150%.

Well written adventures, with some re-enforcing stretches: Universally accepted truth.

Getting your own adventure, first hand, is even better. I don't know the percentage. You will have to test yourself.

Gone fishing.
