Duty to Warn

Edward Bernays, the Father of American Propaganda
“Tell a Lot of the Truth, but Never Tell the Whole Truth.”

Gary G. Kohls, MD
December 1, 2016

Propaganda: “a message designed to persuade its intended audience to think and behave in a certain manner. Thus advertising is commercial propaganda. Or institutionalized and systematic spreading of information and/or disinformation, usually to promote a narrow political or religious (or commercial) viewpoint.” – from http://www.businessdictionary.com/

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic (AKA “capitalist”) society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, and our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of…. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.” – Edward L. Bernays, Sigmund Freud’s nephew, from his seminal book Propaganda (1928). Bernays was the founder of the public relations industry in the US

Bernays had written earlier about the use of public relations techniques as a way for corporations to "so mold the mind of the masses that they will throw their newly gained strength in the desired direction." – Bernays, in his first influential book on propaganda: Crystallizing Public Opinion (1923)

Admen like Bernays are “professional poisoners of the public mind, exploiters of foolishness, fanaticism, and self-interest.” -- Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter when he warned President Franklin Roosevelt against allowing Bernays to play a leadership role in World War II


White Helmets Video, Supporters' Demonstrations Eliminate Doubt About The Organization's Credibility

While the alternative media has done yeoman’s service in exposing the White Helmets as being nothing more than a terrorist support group (with special honors going to Vanessa Beeley), the White Helmets have done a good job of ruining their own falsely earned reputation as of late.

In October, for instance, protests initiated by White Helmets supporters took place all over the United States and Europe that saw protesters decking themselves out in costumes to look as if they were victims in war torn Syria, complete with stage props, fake blood, and flour to make the presentation appear as if it were an actual scene from Syria. The goal was “to bring the war to the people of the west.”

The presentation was very well done. Too well done, in fact. Because, after viewing the demonstrators in the streets, it was clear that all one needed to make a White Helmets style propaganda film is some basic material, a few actors, and the extra added benefit of being surrounded by damaged buildings for effect.

As Tony Cartalucci wrote in his article, “’White Helmet’ ‘Save Aleppo’ Protest Proves How Easy It Is To Dress Up Actors As ‘War Victims,’” written for Land Destroyer Report,

The recent coordinated "save Aleppo" protests held across Europe and North America, perhaps revealed just how transparently fabricated and fictional the "White Helmet's" work really is. During one protest, photos retweeted by the official "White Helmet's" Twitter account showed actors dressed up as "war victims," covered in fake dust and blood, appearing almost indistinguishable from the alleged "victims" the "White Helmets" regularly "save" in Syria.

U.S. House Votes For No Fly Zone In Syria, Leading The Charge For World War 3

On November 15, 2016, the U.S. House of Representatives convened a special session with the normal rules of order suspended and passed H.R. 5732, also known as the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act. The CSCPA passed unanimously with only forty minutes of “debate” on the floor. Because normal rules were suspended, only a few members of Congress were present for the vote and, conveniently, those members who were present were all warmongers.

The CSCPA, of course, is a bill that both toughens the sanctions on Syria and calls for the creation of a No Fly Zone.

In terms of the new sanctions, the bill would impose new penalties and sanctions on entities doing business with the Syrian government, military, and intelligence. The legislation also requires the President to report to Congress regarding the viability of a No Fly Zone over Syria.

It also allows the Secretary of State to compile and gather evidence for the purpose of prosecuting those who are alleged to have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. This, of course, is all based upon the assumption that the Syrian government has committed such crimes and that only the Syrian government has committed them.

Among the members present who engaged in the forty minutes of “debate” were: Ed Royce, R-California; Eliot Engel, D-New York; Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Florida; Dan Kildee, D-Michigan; Chris Smith, R-New Jersey; and Carlos Curbelo, R-Florida. All of these individuals spoke in favor of the bill.


India Takes Drastic Move Toward Cashless Society

November 29, 2013

In 2012, India launched a nationwide program involving the allocation of a Unique Identification Number (UID) to every single one of its 1.2 billion residents. Each of the numbers will be tied to the biometric data of the recipient using three different forms of information – fingerprints, iris scans, and pictures of the face. All ten digits of the hand will be recorded, and both eyes will be scanned.

The project will be directed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) under the premise of preventing identity theft and social welfare fraud. India has rather extensive social welfare and safety net programs, ranging from medical support and heating assistance to others aimed at helping the poor. Fraud is a rampant problem in India, especially in relation to these programs due to a preponderance of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats who often stuff welfare rolls with fake names and take the money for themselves.

Yet, although the justification for the billion person database is the increased ability to accurately disperse social welfare benefits, it will not be just the Indian government’s social welfare programs that have access to and utilize the UIDAI. Indeed, even before the program has been completed, major banks, state/local governments, and other institutions are planning to use the UIDAI for identification verification purposes and, of course, payment and accessibility.

As Aaron Saenz of the Singularity Hub writes:

Yet the UID is going to be used for much more than social welfare programs. The UIDAI is in discussion with many institutions (banks, local/state governments, etc.) to allow them to use the UID as a means of identity verification. These institutions will pay the UIDAI some fee to cover costs and generate revenue. There seems to be little doubt that once it is established, the UID will become a preferred method (if not the preferred method) of identification in India.

Turkey Claims Syria Attacked Its Soldiers; Claims Disputed By SOHR And Even ISIS

Turkey-Syria-Conflict.jpgBrandon Turbeville

November 24, 2016

Three Turkish soldiers were killed and 10 were wounded as a result of combat operations in Northern Syria on November 24. The Turkish military is blaming Syria but virtually every other observer has disputed those claims including the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a notorious anti-Assad propaganda outfit and even ISIS itself.

Turkey is claiming that its soldiers were killed as a result of an intentional Syrian airstrike as the Turks were allegedly engaged in battle against ISIS forces. However, while the Syrian government has yet to comment on the strikes, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has stated that the soldiers’ deaths have come as a result of an ISIS suicide attack on Turkish forces near al-Waqqah, North-West of al-Bab.

Even ISIS itself, by virtue of its media organization, Amaq, admitted that it had committed a suicide attack near al-Waqqa on Wednesday, release video footage as proof. The video shows an armored vehicle filled with explosives driving toward the frontlines and then exploding, a typical “rebel” tactic.

Turkey’s claims, while apparently false, are incredibly dangerous because the Turks could then use the Syrian “attack” on Turkish forces as a pretext for greater NATO and American involvement since an attack on one NATO member is supposed to be seen as an attack on all. Turkey is, after all, a NATO member. This would possibly provide justification for an American administration eager to have the proper excuse to increase its involvement in Syria to do so under the NATO treaty obligations.

The Real Syria Civil Defense VS. The White Helmets

November 21, 2016

NOTE: This writer recommends reading Vanessa Beeley's article, "The REAL Syria Civil Defense Exposes Fake 'White Helmets' As Terrorist-Linked Imposters.

Despite the failure to award the White Helmets with the Nobel Peace Prize and the pathetic propaganda film that accompanied the run-up to the decision, there remains a continued effort to not only promote the White Helmets as being a humanitarian organization and hide their actual terroristic nature, but also to conceal the real humanitarian heroes in Syria, the Syria Civil Defense.

Indeed, if one searches the web for Syria Civil Defense, he will be met with links to a White Helmets website operating under the domain of SyriaCivilDefense.org. Wikipedia also lists the Syria Civil Defense as “aka” the White Helmets.

It is, of course, a necessity for the NATO powers to erase the real Syria Civil Defense and replace them with the White Helmets so that the corporate outlets’ information sourcing can come from a “respected” humanitarian organization whenever false claims leveled against the Syrian government. Propaganda sounds so much better when it comes from selfless, humanitarian, rescue operations.

Vanessa Beeley, the researcher who has ripped the mask of the White Helmets numerous times before and who may be the person most responsible for preventing the terrorist support group from receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, describes the real Syria Civil Defense in the following way:

The REAL Syria Civil Defence was established as an organisation, in 1953, some 63 years before the White Helmets were a glimmer in the eyes of CIA and MI6 operatives.
The REAL Syria Civil Defence is a founding member of the ICDO (International Civil Defence Organisation). Other ICDO partners include the UN Department of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Secretarian of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), International Search and Rescue Advisory Group (INSARAG), World Health Organisation (WHO), United Nations of Geneva (UNOG), Red Cross and the Red Crescent.

CNN Panics Over Impending Assad Victory, Confuses Humanitarian Organizations, Reasons For Crisis

November 18, 2016

CNN is in full panic mode with the recent resumption of the Syrian government assault on terrorist-held East Aleppo. The discredited “news” agency is now reduced to rehashing tired and disproven propaganda against the Syrian government and claims that “Assad is killing his own people” by bombing head-chopping terrorists in East Aleppo.

You have to hand it to CNN for consistency at least. Cutting edge propaganda, however, is not the corporation’s strong suit, since every time it has tried to deliver a major blow, it has resulted in an epic fail.

This time, the propaganda of choice is the same tired line that every bomb (excuse me, every “barrel bomb”) being dropped on East Aleppo has been dropped intentionally on top of civilians for the purpose of killing them all because . . . . well, that part has never been explained. But, for the average CNN reader, just know that Assad is a “bad guy” and that the “rebels” who demand veiled, silent, women and full adherence to Sharia law under pain of death are “good guys” and democracy-loving freedom fighters.

“The regime's siege of rebel-held neighborhoods has triggered a humanitarian catastrophe as food, water and medical supplies run low,” says CNN. Obviously, the humanitarian conditions in East Aleppo have nothing to do with savages and pre-historic bearded freaks running rampant and demanding that their ridiculous interpretation (or should I say “Saudi” interpretation) of their religion be enforced by the blade of a dull knife. It couldn’t be because the terrorists have prevented aid from reaching civilians and have actively prevented civilians from leaving East Aleppo to flee to the (*gasp!!) government held areas. It couldn’t be because of the Western sanctions on Syria. It couldn’t be because the United States and its treacherous allies funded a proxy army of extremists to destroy the country. No, it’s because the Syrian military dared bomb foreign terrorists in East Aleppo. CNN uses interesting logic, indeed.

Google, Corporate Press Launch Attack On Alternative Media

Activist Post
November 16, 2016

On November 15, U.S News and World Report released an article by Rachel Dicker providing a list of “fake sites” to “avoid at all costs.” On the list, Activist Post was prominently noted as being “fake” or, more accurately to the point of the article, a “propaganda” site.

This article comes shortly after an announcement by Google that it would be prohibiting “fake” and “misrepresentative” sites from using its “Adsense” program. The company stated to Reuters that,

“Moving forward, we will restrict ad serving on pages that misrepresent, misstate, or conceal information about the publisher, the publisher’s content, or the primary purpose of the web property. This policy includes fake news sites, the spokesperson confirmed. Google already prevents its AdSense program from being used by sites that promote violent videos and imagery, pornography, and hate speech.

And, of course, the definition of the Orwellian-named “hate speech,” violence, misrepresentation and “fake news” is all going to be determined by Facebook and Google. War, for instance, is extremely violent but there is a necessity to cover it and even produce images from the battlefield in the process. Police shootings and other forms of violence against citizens is also violent but a necessary issue to cover. “Hate speech” is incredibly subjective and, in 2016, speech has come to be labeled as “hate” even when it merely respectfully disagreed with a protected identity group.

Time Is Running Out To Stop Kratom Ban – Need Comments To DEA

kratom-ban-action-alertBrandon Turbeville
November 15, 2016

When the DEA announced that it was backing off of its decision to go through emergency procedures to place kratom on the Schedule 1 list of controlled substances, kratom proponents all over the country rejoiced. This meant that the announcement of the DEA’s intentions only 30 days prior would not take effect at the beginning of October.

Unfortunately, it appears that most kratom activists completely misinterpreted the DEA’s decision. Pulling away from listing kratom as Schedule 1 was not a decision against banning kratom. It was only a decision to stop pursuing the ban in an emergency fashion.

Basically, the DEA is marching forward with its plan to ban the herb but it wants to give the illusion of democracy and freedom before it does so.

The DEA announcement essentially postpones the ban as the agency takes comments from the public regarding their opinions and experiences with the plant. Unfortunately, however, the jubilation of many kratom activists seems to have overtaken pragmatism and strategy since the turnout of posting comments is drastically lower than the turnout in the month of September when users thought the substance was going to be banned.

In order to keep kratom legal it is imperative that all people of goodwill immediately mobilize and begin to take the simplest of actions such as posting public comments in the appropriate place on the DEA website. The comment period has a small window of opportunity only lasting until December 1st, 2016.


New Transmissible Vaccine Spreads Like Virus, No Consent Necessary

transmissable vaccinesBrandon Turbeville
November 16, 2016

As governments move forward in their attempts to force their citizens into vaccination, whether they want it or not, researchers are now moving forward with what may become the future of forced vaccination – transmissible vaccines.

This is an area of research that scientists have been interested in for quite some time but that is only now becoming feasible.

The idea behind these vaccines are that they would themselves be infectious, passing along the vaccine from one person to another as if it were a virus.

Thus, it would be possible to vaccinate a small number of people manually, but as a result of the vaccine’s self-transmission, actually vaccinate a very high number of people.

According to PNAS (Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America),

several recombinant, transmissible vaccines are in development for wild animal populations, including one to protect wild rabbits against a fatal viral infection and another to prevent deer mice from carrying a virus responsible for a deadly human pulmonary disease.

Pygmies Of Cameroon Tortured And Expelled For Rothschild Elephant Hunting Scheme

November 16, 2016

According to a number of media outlets, international banker Benjamin de Rothschild is expelling Baka pygmies from their land in Cameroon in an effort for his company to operate an elephant hunting safari in the area.

Not only has Rothschild expelled the Pygmies, but he has also led an effort to beat and torture them in the process. Survival International, an indigenous advocacy group, published statements in early November from the alleged victims of Rothschild and his business.

“They beat us, they searched for us, they set their dogs on you, their guns on you,” said one member of the Baka who also claimed that his fields were burned.

Another man stated, “They told me to carry my father on my back. I started walking, (the guard) beat me, he beat my father. For three hours, every time I would cry out they would beat me, until I fainted and fell to the ground with my father.”

According to teleSUR, the Baka are not allowed to hunt, visit religious sites or collect plants on their own land as it is now occupied by Rothschild’s tourist camps.

Rothschild’s company has, according to teleSUR at least two protected ancestral plots and uses the land to allow wealthy tourists to hunt wild animals at $50,000 per hunt.

Interestingly enough, the World Wildlife Fund which claims it has a major presence in Cameroon in order to combat trophy hunting, has not responded to Survival International.

This is not surprising since the World Wildlife Fund is supported by the Rockefeller family and a host of oligarchical families and major corporations. It is, in a sense, an organization of stealth designed to parade about as a pro-environment, pro-animalorganization but in reality, is a tool of the 1% to gain control of wildlife and wildlife refuges for the benefit of international banks and corporations.


Russian Analysis Shows Western-Backed Terrorists Using Chemical Weapons Against Civilians

chemical-weapons-syriaBrandon Turbeville
November 14, 2016

In yet another blow to the credibility of the Western corporate media and the anti-Syria propaganda blitz it has maintained since early 2011, experts from the Russian Center For Radiological, Chemical, and Biological Defense have recently announced that analysis of the shells fired by terrorists at the 1070 Apartment Complex in Aleppo contained chemical weapons.

This new revelation brings Western propaganda crashing to ground in regards to the claims that it is Assad’s government using chemical weapons and that the terrorists have no access to them.

“Rapid sample analysis shows that the toxic substances in the militants’ artillery ammunition were chlorine and white phosphorus,” an analyst from the center said.

Notably, all of these substances were banned by the Chemical Weapons Convention on January 13, 1993.

The Russian center has established a mobile analysis center in Aleppo in order to test samples quickly but the samples will soon be sent to the Radiological, Chemical, and Biological Center in Moscow. This center is accredited by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Although the 1070 Apartment Complex was liberated by the Syrian government a few days ago, the terrorists have been repeatedly shelling the area with indiscriminate missiles in order to kill civilians attempting to flee terrorist control as well as firing missiles at Syrian military personnel. Many of these missiles have been filled with poisonous gas which the Russian Center has identified as being chlorine and white phosphorous.

Brandon Turbeville Interview With Mashregh News 11-10-16

Image result for mashregh newsBrandon Turbeville
November 10, 2016
Interview Translated Into English

* Who chose Trump? Did the people's vote matter? Was the decision already made by the elite/establishment?

In my travels across the country, I have to say that I could tell that the majority of people were leaning in Trump’s direction. The real support for Hillary Clinton was small and typically isolated to very specific groups and areas. But, even within these subsets, the support was lower than for a normal democrat. That was my observation on the ground. 

But, as we know, American elections are largely just a selection process by the national oligarchs, i.e. the military industrial complex, secret societies, banks, corporations etc. Leading up to the election, we were given every indication that Clinton was the establishment’s choice. All the power players backed her. The Neo-Cons backed her. The banks backed her. The media was virtually united behind her. 

So we now have to wonder whether or not this election was planned from the very beginning or whether the oligarchs actually decided to change course at the last minute since Clinton was such an impossible sale. It appears that the ruling class has pulled a “bait and switch” technique on the electorate. They were ultimately going to choose between a fascist and a psychopathic, corrupt, warmonger whose own fascist tendencies were there for all to see. Given what I know in terms of American elections, I am hesitant to say that real democracy played into the election itself. That being said, it appears the elections did go in the direction that the people wanted. I’m not sure that qualifies as democracy though.

Trump Is President: Now What?

clinton-trump-3Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
November 11, 2016

On November 9, Americans woke up to the announcement that they have narrowly avoided the apparent worst case scenario, i.e. a Hillary Clinton presidency. Most researchers and activists of good will were happy if not outright ecstatic that the wicked witch of the West was finally gone, hopefully for good. Others simply acknowledged that a change in power would take place in January, 2017 but argue that there will be no discernible difference between a Trump administration and the Obama administration just as the Bush-Obama years were those of a seamless transition.

But while we may take some temporary relief in knowing that we avoiding the absolute worst case scenario, it is time to ask, “what now?” We are faced with 2017 with Donald Trump as President. So what do we do? Join the Trump team and become a cult follower? Support him until he does something terrible or commits a series of terrible decisions? Start attacking him immediately?

Certainly, complacency should not be an option. Simply sitting back because the outcome was “not as bad as it could have been” is entirely useless and counterproductive.

First, it is imperative that activists and people of good will must recognize that a Trump victory is not necessarily a victory for the American people. A Hillary defeat, although positive, does not equal a win for America, at least not in those simplistic terms.

Now is a time for organization and action.

Activists, activist organizations, and all people of good will must immediately begin to prepare themselves for a new phase in a battle that they have been (or at least should have been) fighting all along. They must begin to put aside petty differences with one another and begin looking at areas of common concern. They must continue their individual battles but must form alliances with one another in order to fight in a united front under a common umbrella. Whether the cause is related to guns, the drug war, war, GMOS, or some other issue, these individuals and organizations must come to understand the concept of enlightened mutual self interest.


Assad Adviser Says We Are In A Time That Will Determine The Future Of The World

Syria PeaceBrandon Turbeville
Activist Post
November 10, 2016

As the war in Syria continues to rage on, it is becoming more and more obvious that the battle taking place is about much more than Syria as a country. In this place, the cradle of civilization, there are now two warring ideologies. One that demands total fealty and the absence of all dissent and one that believes a nation’s people should decide for themselves the direction of their country. One ideology wants to force its hegemonic world system upon all other nations and the other contends that nations should choose their own direction.

This is not to argue perfection on the part of Syria or Russia by any means. But it is a reality nonetheless.

Even in the United States itself, a battle is raging that will determine whether or not the country will continue to march forward in totalitarianism and decline or whether individual choice and high living standards will rule the day. The elections have been, of course, merely a manifestation of the most vile elements of American society and the battle continues on despite the result.

Those vile elements are exactly those which Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s political and media advisor addressed when she recently took to social media to condemn Western policy in Syria. But it was not only the foreign policy of proxy wars that Shaaban condemned, it was what she described as an attitude of “racism” and “supremacism” that accompanies those policies.

The U.S./Turkey Plan For “Seizing, Holding, And Occupying” Syrian Territory In Raqqa

November 9, 2016

As the U.S. Presidential selection circus draws to a close, the United States and Turkey have announced a new plan to defeat ISIS, the same terrorist organization both countries have created, funded, armed, and facilitated, in Syria. The plan revolves around the conquering, occupation, and governing of sovereign Syrian territory in the East, most notably Raqqa.

According to the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, after meeting with his Turkish counterpart, that “The coalition and Turkey will work together on the long-term plan for seizing, holding and governing Raqqa.”

The statement by Dunford seems to confirm the fact that the United States will not move forward in its campaign for Raqqa without working closely with the Turks, who are themselves concerned about the makeup of the proxy forces destined to hold power once the campaign is over. The Syrian Democratic Forces, the proxies of choice in this battle, are made up of many Kurdish militias and fighters, an issue that provides much worry on the part of the Turkish government.

As CNN reports,

But DoD News reported that Sunday’s meeting reinforced a longstanding agreement that the US-led coalition would not move ahead with the seizure of Raqqa, “without incorporating the Turks and their perspective into our plans,” according to Dunford.

After Trying To Destroy Civilization In The Middle East, Who Could Vote For Hillary Clinton?

Afraa Dagher
BrandonTurbeville.com
November 7, 2016

As a Lattakian resident, I wake up every day to this beautiful land and walk the streets of this city which is on the Meditteranean coast. Latakia was deeply affected by the Western/GCC proxy war against Syria as was every city in the country.

As a result, most of our men joined the Syrian military in order to defend our homeland.

This city, which used to attract tourists from all over the world, drawn by its beauty and its archeological sites, has now been forced to call its sons and daughters to defend it against foreign fighters who have come from over 83 countries to destroy it. These fighters are Chechen, Turkmen, Uighur, Tunisian, African, Saudi, and Qatari. They were called “moderate rebels” by the West and its allies as well as the Western media.

Of course, we cannot forget that Turkey open its borders to every jihadi fighter who wanted to invade Syrian land.

We have suffered just like every other city from the crimes of the Western proxies. From genocide to rape and constant missiles, life is nothing like it was before 2011.

While our city was considered peaceful compared to other cities like Aleppo, Deir al-Zour, or even Homs, wherever the “moderate” terrorists of the west succeeded in controlling parts of it, our people were terrorized and slaughtered.

FEMA Opens Loan Window As Red Cross Tries To Shut Down Shelters

As the floodwaters receded from Nichols, South Carolina and the surrounding areas, many residents made the emotional journey home to assess what little they had left, a good portion of those people discovering that they had absolutely nothing. Having spent the last several weeks in a shelter operated out of the National Guard Armory in neighboring Mullins (some of those at the shelter are from Mullins also), the shelter residents have been anxious to return home or, at the very least, to return to a home at all.

After the cleanup has begun and the issue morphed into getting the victims out the shelters, many people thought that the cavalry finally arrived when FEMA announced it was coming to town to “assess” the damages and the need of the community for aid. Unfortunately for those who don’t fully understand the nature of such organizations, FEMA has been anything but a cavalry.

In fact, despite an annual budget of nearly $14 billion a year, FEMA has done virtually nothing other than “assess” damages. The agency did not come with water, sandbags, food, blankets or anything else necessary for flood victims. All it brought was an expensive van and lots of paperwork.

So what does FEMA actually do besides assess? And why on earth would it need $14 billion to assess anything? The answer? Besides creating the blueprint to use a natural disaster, military conflict, economic collapse, and social unrest as justification to set up domestic internment camps alongside the Department of Homeland Security, FEMA acts as a facilitator for loans and “loan assistance” to victims who have lost their homes and their livelihood. Instead of providing “trailers” (preferably free of toxic chemicals) to victims, FEMA is instead focused on providing “low interest” loans through the Small Business Administration.
