Faking It: How the Media Manipulates the World into War

As the US and Iranian governments escalate tensions in the already volatile Straits of Hormuz, and China and Russia begin openly questioning Washington's interference in their internal politics, the world remains on a knife-edge of military tension. Far from being a dispassionate observer of these developments, however, the media has in fact been central to increasing those tensions and preparing the public to expect a military confrontation. But as the online media rises to displace the traditional forms by which the public forms its understanding of the world, many are now beginning to see first hand how the media lies the public into war.

Media manipulates the world into war

This guy is spot on

Well, they skuttled the fowls and the old particular genuine rum

“I mind once a British man-o'-war took one of our Boston vessels, and ordered all hands on board, and sent a party to skuttle her; well, they skuttled the fowls and the old particular genuine rum, but they obliviated their arrand and left her.” The Clockmaker — or, the Sayings and Doings of Samuel Slick, of Slickville

Apparently peaceful solutions r the minority

I wonder if Americans endorse war because they think it is free. Apparently to seek peaceful solutions is now the minority.

If there was a war tax, and people had to vote to fund war with a tax, it would be around 1500 dollars per year per person low income going to 15000 for those over 100k incomes would peace still be the minority ?

Strangely enough I think people think war is a free service of the government.

Then there is the bloodshed and blowback...

Irag and Afghanistan cost 4-5 trillion, that is $500k for each taxpayer...
Insane. And idiots like McCain want to spend more !

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

Urgent: War! ~Stop~ Tax what you want ~Stop~ Don't start! ~End~

Get this to the telegraph officer immediately. Them boyz in Washington DC are fixing for War! Ain't nothing Civil 'bout it. They start a war... & I lose my good job as a riverboat pilot! Ain't gonna stand for it! Ain't paying neither! They get a war fired up... I guess I'll skuttle my plans here & lite out for the West... My Brother Orion was just appointed by President Lincoln as Secretary of Nevada Territories. Guess he'll be needing an Under-secretary. Where's my satchel?

Ain't any war making nice... Ain't civil, no matter what they call it. Paid for or not! Points 'bout taxing are well formed; yet, war lays waste to much of what is well formed. Even a well funded war is wanton destruction.

Pay for what you want.

Stop those that attempt to destroy what you cherish.

After that wire is sent to Washington DC, come back. I'll have you send another to my brother, Orion. I'll tell him I am going with him to Nevada Territory. Hurry along now!

Very very good point.... you

Very very good point.... you might be right.

Nukes stop war

notice how countries with them don't get attacked by another countries military, if every country had a few nobody would or could attack each other without suicide.

Man stops war!

Nuclear contraptions are inanimate objects. For those that would use them, animation is is devastating. Their imagination is wanton.

Those that witness wanton nuclear destruction are bereaved. Bereaved beyond compare.

Lyndon Johnson, Bush and Bush all hail from Texas, where there's lots of military contractors.

John Kennedy " the President's first duty is to keep his people out of war"

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

Watch...

This video paints the picture

This video paints the picture that the internet has lessened these risks, but only if the internet is free.

There are indications internet freedom is under attack. I do not like how Google tries to find articles that interest me when I search because people are fed what they want to hear to the point that writers know how to manipulate the process to be heard by Ron Paul readers. Some articles are attack articles and push false information with the purpose to discredit or marginalize or implant doubts about Ron Paul in our minds.

Instead, when we search we should try to find neutral as well as positive, and negative articles to avoid being herded in one direction.

Just a concern. If we are independent-minded, reject unsubstantiated statements and biases, either anti or pro Ron Paul, and we cling to true information, we will be okay.

Let us be diligent not to believe or propagate false information!

I wonder how many posters

I wonder how many posters realize that Africa is the big prize. www.globalresearch.ca/USARFICOM and the Militarization...

This!

Hello to every good and concerned soul here.

We are living in interesting times.

What we may see any day now is something that will tilt the wheel towards a zone never to return from.

More war sponsored by those who profit from it. It is the last desperate grasp of this evil corrupted bankrupt govt. The fed was only supposed to last one hundred years and then, ka-boom implosion!

We see possible windows of attack time in April, but maybe in August too. Who knows?? So much dis-info, and little truth that flows to the people.

At first it looked like we might have had some reprieve from this evil warmongering. But maybe not.

So like, they do not spend the gas money to go to the Persian gulf to vacation. They do it for the rothschild empire of the bankster.

http://rt.com/news/us-amphibious-group-land-operation-iran-663/

So this is another new indicator that something is up. These evil things have no respect for Easter and seem to like this date to do their evil false flag events on. We must all be watchmen/woman on the wall. Vigilant, and aware of the MO of the beast that is seeking to kill us all off from so many different directions, using so many methods.

What is another telling sign, we see psychologists advising these poor kids because they know they are going to war and it may not be good for them.

And then there are the windows of opportunity.

Folks, there are a lot of things happening on purpose to distract and divide peoples attentions. Follow your heart and DO what you can to get ready. What ever the outcome of these coming months, we pray you are prepared in your mind and heart for more war, more radiation, and more govt totalitarian moves against the American people. This is nazi-germany in chernobal-land now. Be well, prepare, and live purely. We are truly living in the last days of Pompeii.

this is well done--

Thank you--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Watch out on Facebook too

Watch out on Facebook too people! One site corralling the peeple into a single place to share their personal beliefs, which can easily be tracked, manipulated, and centralized.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

I find this bit most

I find this bit most disturbing:

Earlier this year, it was revealed the the US government had contracted with HBGary Federal to develop software that create fake social media accounts in order to steer public opinion and promote propaganda on popular websites. The federal contract for the software sourced back to the MacDill Air Force Base in Florida.

As we reject mainstream media and get more and more comfortable with the internet, we cannot ever become complacent and assume that the internet will always be a refuge from this sort of manipulation and propaganda. It is everywhere. On twitter, facebook, and even on this site..."trolls" come to try and steer and direct public opinion. And they aren't just bored kids sitting at home trying to stir up drama for lulz anymore. They are people and organizations will real agendas.

At least

it gives us a hint that Zionists, Illuminati & NWO are not behind our own government tyranny created by people like you and me - army troops who signed up, CIA clerks, gov analysts, social engineers, affirmative-action appointees - all parts of the big government machinery.

RIght, there is propaganda

RIght, there is propaganda all over the internet as well. That "Israel Loves Iran" thing looks a whole lot like professional propaganda to me, most likely to get people to stop looking at the Palestinians situation and be focused on how much the zionists love Iran. Don't tell me the people of Israel aren't Zionists. The simple act of living on that soil which was once Palestine is an act of Zionism. The whole "We are just people, we're not responsible for what our government does" angle is BS. Government is meant to perform the will of the people, that's why we are doing what we're doing to try to fix THIS country.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

this one is clownish. It's like keystone cops of journalism.

Power of suggestion

Is dangerous in the wrong hands.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Yup

I find it hard to know what can be trusted, or when something trusted is changed over time. I just bought the fundraising dimes. What if that incriminates me someday as a terrorist? Using the internet for payment is not anonymous. So we have to decide are we for Liberty enough to put ourselves out there; and on the otherhand, are we putting ourselves out there because someone is trying to find out who we are. Just stating something that has been troubling me for quite some time.

Good morning.

Lol,Yeah I thought about that too.But people like to collect the strangest things,If the dimes become associated with a so called possible questionable activity the collectors value may go up quite a bit,Then is when to sell to the folks that "Hide" their collections,Lol. I understand your concerns about putting ourselves "out there". I am thinking it will happen sooner or later anyways and that is exactly what they want us to fear. But it is getting out of hand when they think we might have something to hide because we would rather not have them looking into our underwear drawers without approval. But I think you are OK with the DP dimes ,Pandas ,Disney ,Third Riech ,Roman, Iranian, or any other "Collectors" coins.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Yes, I finally decided that I

Yes, I finally decided that I was not going to hid my thoughts aobut what is going on in our country anymore. Seems like a chess game. All the players are set with the continual executive orders and congressional liberty stripping votes. I guess we are just waiting for the checkmate to be called. Hopefully Dr. Paul will outbeat the odds and set the stage back. That wont be easy either, but well worth the sacrifice for our nation. As he has said, he'd rather be poorer and more free. Something we all need to be ready for when he cuts a trillion!

...Seems like a chess game...

Yeah, but that presents a dilemma for me - I really, really stink at chess!

But I do have a list of about a dozen emails to whom I send all the Ron Paul propaganda that makes sense to forward.

Ron Paul 2012 or Bust! Literally!
(you may use that quip freely if you'd like.)

Freedom is my Worship Word!

That is a very big issue

It is the hardest to address because of greed everyone wants their cake and eat it too. It will never happen that way,sacrifices will have to be made for sure or it will never happen. "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction". I have accepted this as the rule of physics we must all accept. Please have a great day and enjoy the DP,I am heading out to get some much needed work done today. Nice talking with you again!
