A Few Words On Our New Ministry Of Truth

ministry-of-truthThe Senate quietly passed the “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act”, recently, following in the path of the House. The Act was slipped into this years NDAA authorization.

From Zero Hedge:

Also called the Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016 (S. 2692), when introduced in March by Sen. Rob Portman, the legislation represents a dramatic return to Cold War-era government propaganda battles. “These countries spend vast sums of money on advanced broadcast and digital media capabilities, targeted campaigns, funding of foreign political movements, and other efforts to influence key audiences and populations,” Portman explained, adding that while the U.S. spends a relatively small amount on its Voice of America, the Kremlin provides enormous funding for its news organization, RT.“Surprisingly,”

Portman continued, “there is currently no single U.S. governmental agency or department charged with the national level development, integration and synchronization of whole-of-government strategies to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation.”

Rob Portman is a Republican Senator from Ohio; for those who might think this was solely a Democrat Party creation.

This Act, assuming it is signed by President Obama, (as I’m sure it will be, as it is included in the NDAA), means a group of individuals within the Government will be tasked with deciding what is truth and what is disinformation, and acting upon those decisions. George Orwell would be proud.

After years of being fed lies by the Government and Mainstream Media, the new Ministry of Truth will be assigned the task of censoring the Alternative Media for telling some truths. Governments always seek to control public perception, but the Alternative Media has given them competition, hence the need for this new Act.

Government is adept at choosing names for the laws they pass, which are usually opposite the true intent; such as the Patriot Act and the Affordable Care Act. You get the picture, no doubt. When they give a new law a fancy name, its real intent is probably the opposite of the given name. So, in the case of  “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act”, the intent can be assumed to be the fostering of disinformation and the use of propaganda.

I don’t know about you, but I prefer to decide for myself what is truth and what is propaganda. When a Government takes on this task, it always ends up badly.

Some will think that it is high time the Government rooted out the “fake news” that is destroying our Country, thinking that incoming President Trump will use the new power wisely. Keep in mind, that once the law is in place, that any future President, or Congress, can avail itself of the powers granted. And they will!

In 2012, again included in the NDAA, Congress passed a repeal of the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which barred the use of propaganda by the Government within the US.

From Business Insider – May 21, 2012

The newest version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) includes an amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on the American public, reports Michael Hastings of BuzzFeed.

The amendment — proposed by Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) and Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and passed in the House last Friday afternoon — would effectively nullify the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which explicitly forbids information and psychological operations aimed at influencing U.S. public opinion.

So, first Congress passes a law allowing the Government to use propaganda on its citizens, then secondly, it passes a law which lets the Government decide what is Truth or Propaganda. Forgive me for thinking we are living in the Brave New World Aldous Huxley wrote about.

  1. They are losing the thought war and so they must fight back with the only tool left to them…silencing their opponents. This is a last desperate act from an increasingly irrelevant government.

  2. Where is the ACLU regarding this 1st amendment attack act? No mention of this act on their website! But I’m not surprised since those tools are never able to protect the 2nd amendment, so I guess they have given up on the 1st as well.

    BTW – Thanks for mentioning the 2012 repeal of the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, I didn’t know about that one.

  3. “This Act, assuming it is signed by President Obama, (as I’m sure it will be, as it is included in the NDAA), means a group of individuals within the Government will be tasked with deciding what is truth and what is disinformation, and acting upon those decisions.”

    First, Obama is NOT a US President. We have THREE (3) requirements that a person HAS to meet in order to occupy that office. All of that is in writing. Then they have to be elected by HONEST elections. He did not meet all three requirements – and it is up to HIM to prove that he did. He was put in as a presidential candidate unlawfully, and then he “won” both elections through ELECTION FRAUD. Those that assisted him into the WH, that backed up all he said or did, that flew him and his “family” around on our dime, etc are all TRAITORS to our nation, and because Obama committed First Degree Murder multiple times they are complicit in that crime also. They paved the way for him to do what he has done; *Terrorism,. First Degree Murder, Treason, War Crimes, etc, etc, etc.

    US Constitution, Article 2, No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.

    Second, the NDAA is NOT a law. Anyone who follows it, particularly those who enforce it are *TERRORISTS, and Traitors to the American people, the USA. It matters not that they wear a governmental uniform, and receive a governmental check – state or federal. But it does matter that they did not bother to educate themselves enough to understand that they either stand for their country and legitimate government, or they actively work against it; and they broke their Oath.

    *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    It is important to realize that even in 1969 we had courts that were not filled with Domestic enemies or Traitors to the USA, and that they then still recognized that neither the Congress, the FCC, the courts have the lawful authority to shut the people up.

    Supreme Court, Red Lion v. FCC, 1969: “It is the purpose of the First Amendment to preserve an uninhibited marketplace of ideas in which truth will ultimately prevail, rather than to countenance monopolization of that market, whether it be by the Government itself or a private licensee. It is the right of the public to receive suitable access to social, political, esthetic, moral, and other ideas and experiences which is crucial here. THAT RIGHT MAY NOT CONSTITUTIONALLY BE ABRIDGED EITHER BY CONGRESS OR BY THE FCC.” (CAPS ARE MINE)

    Color of law. The appearance or semblance, without the substance, of legal right. Misuse of power, possessed by virtue of state law and made possible only because wrongdoer is clothed with authority of state, is action taken under “color of law.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, page 241. (pretend law)

    It is critical for the people to understand that there is NO ONE WHO SERVES WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENTS that have that authority. It was delegated NOT to any branch or office that they serve within – state or federal. It is an act of violence against the American people because the threat of governmental force (that might be carried out by traitors) is behind that action. It is time to make a loud, and vociferous demand for them to not only be removed from office, but to be prosecuted for the crimes they have committed against the American people, the USA.

    They may pretend that we are no longer under the US Constitution, but IT is where the branches and offices they occupy come from, and WE have not changed our government, so the US Constitution is the contract that they agreed to follow and are Oath bound to, and it is what WE must enforce constitutionally.

    God Bless and Stay Safe All

    Cal
    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

  4. We should over load our congress critters for the truth on all manner of topics. Every time you read or hear something, call, email, or write a letter to them with a few dozen questions for clarification. Explain that you are just a concerned citizen who only wants the truth on all matters, and since our government is the only sanctioned purveyor of truth, you want it Straight from the horse’s ass, …I mean mouth. Tell them you can’t trust CNN, CBS, ABC, FOX, NBC, etc. Expound on how you have been a fool for so long, getting your news, sometimes directly from people on the scene, but you recognize the errors of your way. Only an elected official is truthful, and you must rely solely on their stamp of approval.
