The Manufacturing Of News On An Industrial Scale

Populist Media

Published

Groups such as Nielsen Media Research are “people-meters” that watch you, while you watch the T.V., search the internet or interact on social media. They provide audience estimates on demographics; a hot topic for advertising agencies and government bureaucracies (among others), which base their marketing decisions on this type of data collection.

A 1997 TV Guide poll showed that more than half of the viewers desired an increased of moral and religious themes on T.V., yet Nielsen Media Research either ignored this factor or deliberately distorted the poll, instead reflecting their personal preferences.  Influenced by this research, television entertainment groups began to pull popular formats such as Cowboy westerns, family-type shows, and uplifting programs because they erroneously believed them to be outdated and out of vogue.

An important book relating to these surreptitious influences was written in 1922 by Walter Lippmann titled “Public Opinion“. It was based upon research conducted with Edward Bernays in London during World War I.  It involved the process of “painting pictures inside people’s heads”, pictures designed to mislead and condition the thinking of entire societies.

Lippmann once said, “The pictures inside the head often mislead men in their dealings with the world outside their heads”.  Lippmann’s colleague, Bernays, also had two books published that further refined the art of indoctrination entitled “Crystallizing Public Opinion” and “Propaganda”.   These books were written with the aid of his helpmate and master manipulator H.G. Wells to further explain how an “invisible government” could  take over an increasingly complex civilization.  Wells’ believed that nations could be defeated most efficiently not by overt warfare, but through the conditioning of thought processes; e.g., propaganda and its ability to influence the formation of public opinion.

Bernays wrote, “It remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world…”

The use of group-mass psychoanalysis to guide these campaigns of persuasion has become the basis of a multi-billion dollar advertising industry to sell their wares — whether products, ideas, attitudes, candidates, goals, or states of mind. This approach has been used to “engineer” our consent to their propositions and agendas.

Due to the effectiveness of his research, Bernays was granted control of CBS by his executive superiors, some of whom were members of the newly formed Council on Foreign Relations; a “members only” group which gave birth to another organization: the global think tank “Club of Rome”.

Lippmann, Bernays, and H.G. Wells didn’t merely stumble upon this power to manipulate the masses.  Instead they improved upon the work of an 18th century German philosopher, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, developer of the philosophical framework of Absolute idealism.  Hegel’s philosophy was based on the belief that every circumstance in life manifests itself as a set of contradictions, or oppositions, that can be reconciled without eliminating either polar opposite.  It was later improved upon by Fichte, and again by Karl Marx and his colleague Friedrich Engels.

The Hegelian Dialect refers to two opposing sides, a thesis and anti-thesis which causes conflict and gives birth to an synthesis.  It is through this philosophy that controlled conflict can create a predetermined outcome.  For example,  before World War II we had Marxist Russia (Thesis) and Nazi Germany (Antithesis), which boiled up into World War II (conflict), and gave birth to the United Nations (synthesis).  A more recent example would be the United States Bill of Rights (Thesis) and Islamic Sharia Law (Antithesis), which causes a Global Jihad/9-11 (Conflict), which gave us the Patriot Act (Synthesis).

The conflict of political ‘right’ and political ‘left’, or thesis and anti-thesis, in Hegelian terms, has been considered essential to forward the movement of history in order to come up with a per-determined synthesis.  Karl Marx posed capitalism as thesis and communism as antithesis.  Any conflict between these two ideologies can neither be capitalism nor communism, but must lead to a synthesis of the two conflicting forces — where the State becomes God and the individual becomes totally subordinate to an all powerful State.

Controlling information via the mainstream media has been successful because the intellectual world, frequently distracted, is still locked into a phony verbal and oral battle between the ‘left’ and right’.  Whereas, unlike the carefully manufactured Madison avenue illusion, the real struggle is the battle between individual freedom and the encroaching power of absolute Statism.

The faster the cattle run, the faster the treadmill takes them nowhere.  Publications which point out the fallacy of the left-right dichotomy are frequently ignored, and the citizens keep trooping down to the polling booths in the belief they have a choice; in fact, the policies of both political parties are more common than differentiated.  This sad fact alone, apart from others, goes far in explaining how we’ve arrived at the edge of the precipice we now find ourselves.

The dialectic plan has misfired a few times over the course of history.  Informational blackouts have not always been as successful as they were intended.  The controlling influences of news magazines, T.V., and other major media outlets steer the conversation through their dominance over the weekly and daily “summaries” of our “information”; they’ve been able to orchestrate perception among viewers and readers to a significant extent, but those controlling the reins of power have been unable (thus far) to restrict individual access to an explosion of information emanating from the age of technology; the continued effort to control what we see, hear, and most importantly, think, is why we are seeing a concerted push for governmental control of the internet.Yet again, we’ve been informed, control of the internet is being done purely with our own best interests in mind.

The discovery of the Democrat National Convention emails has proven the main stream media abandoned the honest of role of journalism and colluded with  a major party in favor of a historically corrupt politician. Silicon valley has now taken the battle to conservative voices they deemed dangerous to the narrative. Now the main stream media openly distributes fakenews, only to be discredited within 24 to 48 hours later. But the damage is already done. Millions have seen the News, spreads it, believes it and has formed an opinion based on it, dividing a wedge between the “thesis” (left) and “anti-thesis”(right) further. The Mainstream Media has willful become the enemy of the people. Where does the lies end and the truth begins?

On Saturday, a 14-year-old boy was verbally attacked by a male employee while he was shopping at a Vans store. The incident took place at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, Kansas when the underage teen was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and one of the employees told the teen to take off the hat. The teen refused to take off the hat, which then led the employee to tell him “F*ck you.”

The mother of the teenage boy confronted the man who had verbally abused her son demanding an explanation, “He did nothing to you. What did you say to my son, my 14-year-old son?” The employee responded, “I said ‘F*ck you.'”

The mother then demanded to speak to the manager when another gentlemen behind the counter told the her, “I’m sorry guys, just go about your business,” but the mother was not having it. “Absolutely not. I want corporate office, I want everything right now,” the mother demanded all the information required to report the disrespectful employee to corporate regarding the incident.

The employee who cussed out the teenage boy has been fired soon after the mother of the teen complained to corporate. “Our focus is to provide the best customer service experience. We did let this employee go. He is no longer with our company. The actions and comments from this employee at the Oak Park location is in contrast with our values and beliefs,” said Vans corporate office, according to a statement obtained by the Daily Caller.

Man Arrested For Pointing A Gun At Another Man’s Head For Wearing A ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat

Mugshot of James Philips after pulling a gun at a man for wearing a 'MAGA' hat on February 16, 2019.

On Saturday February the 16th, a couple was shopping at a Sam’s Club store in Bowling Green, Kentucky, when they crossed paths with a man who would give them an unforgettable experience. The couple who have been identified as Pierce and his wife Cherrie were wearing “Make America Great Again” hats when 57-year-old James Philips flipped them off while they were checking out. Cherrie then asked Philips if he was flipping them and with vulgar language Philips said he did do so. Pierce then confronted Philips and argued back and forth. “So I double flipped him off and said ‘it goes both ways buddy,’” Pierce told The Gateway Pundit.

“I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my President as he has not to,” said Pierce in a interview with abc 13 news.

After he flipped him back, Pierce claims that Philips then pulled out his .40 caliber Glock pistol and pointed it at Pierce’s head as he said “It’s a good day for you to die.” “I told him to pull the trigger or put the gun down and fight me like a man — and he repeated ‘it’s a good day for you to die’. I repeated ‘pull the trigger or put the gun down and fight me like a man’. We had a very intense verbal interaction with each other and he started backing away,” Pierce said as he told his side of the story. Soon enough Philips walked out of the store and Pierce followed him to his car to continue the argument. Philips did not leave as he waited for his elderly mother who was still inside the store.

When police arrived after responding to the 911 calls from witnesses, Pierce and James were still in the parking lot arguing. James then told police that he had been assaulted by Pierce, but his story was disproved by witnesses and the security camera footage from Sam’s Club.

“I have every right to support my country and my President and I proudly wear this hat as a symbol of trying to help Make America Great Again! I’m not ashamed or afraid to wear this hat. I’m not a racist, xenophobe, sexist, or anything the left accuses our President of, which he isn’t,”

-Pierce.

Both parties were uninjured during their dispute, but Philips who had a permit to conceal and carry from the state of Tennessee where he was originally from, was taken into custody to Warren County Regional Jail and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment after the incident.
