Here we are at the end of April 2018, with the world looking very much like a dystopian nightmare. Readers of this page likely have an idea that what we are being told is going on is not entirely nor exactly what is actually going on. We have come to realize that humanity, specifically, Americans, have been duped for at least several generations into a kind of mass sleep of consent to a kind of soft enslavement. Once we grasp the reality of that: we have consented to our own, and each other’s, enslavement, we have a moral responsibility to stop consenting.

Operation Mockingbird. Sounds like an evil plot among birds, right? I can see a tree full of birds plotting against another group of birds calling their plan Operation Mockingbird. Well, this scenario isn’t that far-fetched just substitute birds for people, keep the plotting, and think of the tree full of birds as actually Washington D.C. and the other tree as the American people. Maybe before we continue with the silly analogies, we need to define what this operation really is and how it is manipulating what we see and hear.
Here is what many have officially defined as Operation Mockingbird. It is a government program that used C.I.A. personnel to infiltrate media organizations, and their objective is to control the way we hear the news, receive the news, and even react to the news. Their goal is to discredit alternative media and place the focus on the mainstream media; which they control, run, write for, and present. How did this deception get conceived and is it still going on today?
Let’s define what it is, and then we will look at is this program still active today. What we do know for sure is that Operation Mockingbird was a secret program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.) to manipulate the media as stated above. It got its roots in the early 1950’s and was initially started by Cord Meyer and Allen W. Dulles. When Dulles became head of the C.I.A., the program was taken over by Frank Wisner. Their objective was to recruit well known and respected journalist into their system to tell the C.I.A.’s views through a “legitimate” news source. They are even attributed to some student and culture organizations, buying news and magazine businesses, and significant news outlet worldwide.
What would be their point in doing this? The answers here are numerous so I will touch on a couple. One, and probably the main reason, is to control political opinions and help create the division among us. Why would the C.I.A. want division between us? To implement the Cloward and Piven strategy, but I will touch on that strategy in another article. For time’s sake, let’s just say they can’t carry out their global agenda with a united populace. They need us divided and dependent on them, their system, their goals as the answer. Think of it as them creating fictitious chaos so they can come in with the solution and appear to be the answer to all our problems.
Well, how do we know where to get our news from and who is the reliable source? This is a question I get asked many times. The answer is really multi-layered and needs to be addressed. It is evident and obvious that mainstream media is under the influence of this operation even to this day. So, that really leaves us as the news source. It is because we have become dependent on mainstream media to tell us how to feel, what to eat, how to dress, what’s popular, what’s not, that led us to this point of disinformation. Just like if someone came into our home and took it over, it would be our responsibility to take back our house. This issue is no different. After all, they are coming into our house and taking over our thoughts, opinions, and way of life. Well, let’s take it back!
We can do this in many ways. With today’s social media, blogs like this one, and platforms to get our voice out there this is easier than ever to report the accurate news. It is imperative in today’s time to not post satire articles. This is a huge issue for me and needs to stop. Sure those articles can be witty, funny, and most times so far-fetched that it can not only lose the person out there seeking the information but discredit us in general. It is imperative that we do not become what we are fighting when the fight is about disinformation. There are many out there that may not be vocal in their fight but are relying on you for their news.
Use social media to inform the unaware and to open up dialogue. This will not only help the information get out there, but will also open up that dialogue we seek to those that may not fully understand what is really going on. Share articles you find informative, accurate, and trustworthy. Build a pipeline of blogs, social media sites, friends, family, that you see to be engaged and aware. Talk the points all the way through to conclusion to not only get all the facts laid out but to understand the issues better yourself. In summary, learn the lesson then go out and be the teacher. The important thing to remember is that you were not born awake and neither was the person you are trying to reach. Meet them where they are at in their understanding. If they are health conscious, then don’t approach them about the Federal Reserve. It will be overwhelming and unproductive. Instead, let them know about G.M.O.’s and the harms of vaccines. Once again, meet them where they are at. Do not use this time to show off how much you know, but instead help them get to where you are in understanding the fact. Baby steps.
Why alternative media and not mainstream media. Well, let’s look at who owns and operates these mega media sources. Before I go any further, I’m not saying completely turn off mainstream media, just be aware of the global agenda when listening to them and do your own research. Always do your own research. Even when it comes to alternative media.
Take Fox News for example. They are the biggest and most watch news we have. Who owns them and what is their relationship to the globalist, or elitist? News Corp which is the parent company to Fox News is actually owned by Rupert Murdoch with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal holding 7% of the operation. When dealing with the global agenda, Saudi is one of the most violent countries even though we refer to them as an ally. They have a horrible domestic policy and actually, to date, has more beheadings than what we see with ISIS. Saudi has also been implemented and tied to 9/11.
Whenever I engage in talks about Operation Mockingbird one name comes up every time. Anderson Cooper with CNN. His name is one of the most closely tied to Operation Mockingbird that I have found. There are numerous YouTube videos out there showing him being confronted on this topic and he always has the same reaction. Dismiss, deny, and belittle the person asking the question. Why? Ask me anything about my involvement in Operation Mockingbird and I would sit there and talk to you as an innocent person accused of being a part of this would do. There are many, many more out there that I will touch on in another article.
Another way of knowing our media is fake is the content in which they report on. We know our money is printed out of thin air, not backed by anything, and then loaned out, with interest. Why is this not leading off every news cycle daily? Addressing the Federal Reserve, especially in today’s economy, would quickly get an audit, if not abolished completely when the American people really know what our monetary system is about. Ironically, but by design, the Federal Reserve, or The Fed, is controlling the news through financing the main players and owners of the media.
How about undeclared wars? Why is this no leading the news cycle daily? We are a nation, in general, proud of our military and unite anytime we have to send our men and women overseas, so why not report on how these are illegal wars and not declared by Congress as the Constitution demands. Let’s not forget the troops swear an oath to the Constitution as well as the politicians sending them to war, so why are we not demanding they follow the document they swear to? Because many don’t even know what the Constitution says. That, too, is by design.
Look at the partisan platforms of the media outlets today. Depending on your political leanings is where and how you receive your news. If you are a Republican, you watch Fox News. Democrat, MSNBC, etc. Why and how did we allow this to happen? Media needs to be neutral. They need to tell us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. When they take on a partisan stance they are helping perpetuate the division and even protecting the very elements they are supposed to be calling out. It’s not by accident that corruption has hit an all-time high and reporting on the corruption has hit an all-time low. It’s because of Operation Mockingbird.
It is very evident and clear that this C.I.A. program is not only still around, but thriving stronger than ever. We have the power to take it back, and we should take the moral authority to do just that. We are in dangerous times globally and what gets reported needs to be the truth, regardless who it offends. We can do this, and we can win. Only when we seek the truth and not partisan politics is when we will be free and informed. So get out there on your social media sites, blogs, radio shows, and activism activities and spread the truth. Spread it loud, spread it proudly, and spread it gently. We will win by being the change we want to see. Let’s start with posting facts, not satire. Learning the lessons and then going out and being the teacher. I am reminded this 5th of November that truth is what set people free in the now infamous movie V for Vendetta, not partisan politics. I look forward to seeing you out there and learning from you all. Let’s be the peaceful end to Operation Mockingbird.
At first glance you wouldn’t think these two have anything in common. And you would be right to think that especially since they shouldn’t be grouped in together. However, the two are more closely linked that you would think. Well, that’s not a fair statement. The more accurate statement should read something like this, “Big Pharma and guns are linked when it comes to mass shootings.” There that’s the most accurate way of tying the two together. What do I mean? Let’s look at several things.
What do the majority of mass shootings have in common other than they occur in gun free zones? Well we are finding that the gunmen are also on psychotropic medicine which greatly influences their decision making. Am I blaming the drug industry alone? No, of course not, but they can not be overlooked as we are seeing a mass increase in prescribed medicine to the public. We are in a time where Big Pharma and their influence is great in power. Just look at the television on any given night and count the pharmaceutical commercials pushing their products in the disguise of a more full life, a more productive life. Now during that same commercial count the number of side effects vs. the cause the drug is suppose to be treating. It’s mind boggling the number of side effects of using the drug vs. the symptoms that originally brought you to the need of the drug in the first place. In some cases it’s almost worth it to have the symptom and not the side effects of the prescribed medication.
While I am not, and do not claim to be a doctor or even a novice when it comes to medicine, I can not ignore the damaging effects that is plaguing us today with prescribed medicine. I always say, “If you go to your doctor and the first thing he doesn’t ask you is about your eating habits, then leave immediately cause that should be the first question of a health care physician.” It just seems like the first and only step nowadays is to check vitals, run some test, and finally prescribe the remedy through a magic pill. Why not look into the root of the cause like what we put into our bodies? We have a very complicated immune system that is designed to flush and fight many attacks that invade our bodies, but like anything else we need to take care of the immune system.
Now I am not against medicine at all. I see its benefits when prescribed and administered correctly. I just want the doctor and healthcare industry to be responsible to their patients, not Big Pharma. And unfortunately the latter seems to be the norm. I could write a whole article on Big Pharma, but that is not my purpose of this article. I want to address the concerns I have of the gun confiscation that seems to be looming and all aspects of the “mass shooting” epidemic we seem to find ourselves in today.
So back to the issue….Big Pharma vs. guns. First, why do I feel like there is a gun confiscation looming around the corner? I see the United Nations, along with the democratic party looking at every chance to pass new laws, regulations, and sanctions on the right to bear arms. Republicans aren’t exempt. While they seem to be vocal, they are not really pushing the 2nd amendment like we need them to. It is a coordinated effort and the talk on Capital Hill seems to back up my suspensions. Can gun control really make us safe? No, it can not. It will only lead to more victims because criminals will never lay down their weapons regardless what law(s) are passed. After all, isn’t there a law already making murder illegal? Of course there is and because they are criminals they will not abide by it. So any kind of gun control is only going to disarm law abiding citizens and make us a helpless victim to intruders of our family, home, and property.
How can we protect ourselves and still have a society that feels safe going to the mall? To school? Or even a movie? The evidence is overwhelming in support of a good guy with a gun stops or drastically reduces the impact a shooter makes. Isn’t that why we call the police when this sort of things happen in the first place? Because we believe he is a good guy with a gun? So it is very easy to dismiss the firearm as the problem when one takes agendas out of the way and looks at the evidence. One more point to make as far as guns being the problem. If guns were the problem then no one would leave a rifle range alive, or even a gun show. However, the opposite is fact. These shootings do not happen at rifle ranges or gun shows. They happen in gun free zones. Where self protection isn’t allowed.
How does Big Pharma fit into the equation? C.C.H.R. International wrote this in one of their articles – “At least 35 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 169 wounded and 79 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public—neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs). Another article written by Natural News states the following “Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it’s not the weapons used. The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.”
There are tons more research and studies that all say the same thing in regards to the mental capacity of the individual on these drugs. Would making more gun free zones help? Would stricter legislation regarding firearms change this? No, of course it wouldn’t. Circling back to the point I made earlier, it would be treating a symptom and not the cause. When I really started looking into this connection I was stunned that this wasn’t the first course of action before we even talked about the tool (gun) that the individual used.
Why isn’t the mainstream media reporting these facts at every chance? Remember those pharmaceutical ads I was referring to earlier? Well they are also the sponsor of most, if not all, news channels and as we know, they will not bite the hand that feeds them. Even at our expense. I do agree it is past time to stop burying our dead due to senseless violence, but disarming law abiding citizens, or even heavily regulating the firearms industry will have no positive effect on the number of victims. Just ask the residence of New York, New Orleans, Detroit, Chicago where gun laws are the strictest, but gun deaths are higher than the nations average.
In conclusion we can minimize the deadly cost of gun violence by properly diagnosing, prescribing, and following up with healthcare officials. I am not placing the blame on them solely, but the evidence supports the claim that we, as a society, are over medicated. Watch what we put into our bodies and what comes out will be benefited. Watch who and how we trust our bodies to and take responsibility on our own health at a level we can control.
Here is a topic I have heard a lot, especially of late. And I must admit at first it was an easy question for me to answer; of course we do. But do we really need a President and if so, why? How come in a nation of 320 million Americans are we so focused on finding that one person to completely and blindly turn over our lives, so to speak, and entrust that one person will make the right decisions to “govern” us. Do we need to be governed? Is there really one person, along with their administration, that can make the right choices for our individual rights and liberties? No, there isn’t. The proof is in the pudding.
Let’s look at a declining past in order to really answer this question. I won’t take you on a long history lesson, but I must start at 1776. It was an exciting time, a self finding moment and even a time when people collectively would come together to find a way to have structure while maintaining individual rights and sovereignty. The Articles of Confederation was replaced with the Constitution and Bill of Rights and our founding fathers had a vision of self rights with limited government. Sounds great, right? What happened then? Why, when our country was founded on freedoms for all, are we seeing a decline in rights and liberties? This is where the article could get really long so for times sake I will just say the greed, self interest, and corporatism entered the free people unknowingly.
We are seeing attacks on the very freedoms and liberties that the founding fathers tried to tie down and secure. The 2nd amendment is being usurped by a foreign government, the United Nations, while my fellow citizens don’t even understand what the United Nations really is. It’s an all out blitzkrieg on the 4th amendment whether it is in the form of unconstitutional checkpoints on our roadways, or the acts performed at our airports by the T.S.A., or the N.S.A. spying program on innocent civilians. And of course, it is always in the name of security.
So, how does all this relate to the above question as far as do we need a President? Well the current President has taken away not only our individual sovereignty, but our nation’s sovereignty. That is crucial in the preservation of a Republic. This President can not take the blame alone though. This is a plan that is as old as the Constitution itself. And that plan is globalism. It has been openly called for and very aggressively fought to achieve. Here is where the citizens need to rise and take back their government. In a Republic it is our way of life we protect, not the politicians.
Self governing is at the heart of the question when one talks about Presidents and government. Albeit the smallest form of government is what is needed, but we are seeing an overreach of power with no consequences to the perpetrator. In fact, they are often protected, reelected, and continue the oppression that we use to define as treason. How have we lost our way in such a manner that treason is over looked and even protected and defended?
Could we really self govern ourselves in this day and age? In a time when our monetary system is fraudulent, our wars are undeclared and usually just a result of bad foreign policy that we have come to refer to as blowback. Or in this highly advanced technological age when cyber security is a daily threat. The answer is really quite simple. Yes, we could. The private sector out performs the government sector on every facet of life. Spending, protection, education, agriculture, business, financial, and many other ways that are essential to maintaining a Republic. So, how do we get to that point?
Before we get to that part let’s look at what the government really is. They collect taxes off of the working class in order to pay for programs that not only help the poor, but also programs such as social security. This makes the government the “middle man” in our lives. Often times at a gross over spending and poor oversight. Look at the roads situation. This a a hot topic to many. When I have had this conversation in the past I always get the “who will build the roads argument.” As many of you have as well. Let’s address that point. First off, the government doesn’t and have never built a road in the history of government. What they are suppose to do is get bids from the private sector and the winning bidder will be awarded the contract. Why do we need them to take our money illegally through taxes, sit on it for a while, just to award their friends of their investment partners the contract? We don’t need to. That is something that could and really should be done at the local level, state level if necessary.
This has nothing to do with the President thought. No it doesn’t, but it does show a big flaw in government in general. What point could I make to circle back to the main question in this article which is do we need a President. There are numerous points I could make to show this, but I will focus on one in particular. How about foreign policy? That is a big one as far as the way the world sees us and has gotten muddy regardless which party holds office. And to be frank, I do not see it changing in the future, only expanding its global reach. Take the past few elections for example. Let’s go back to 2008 when the country was tired of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We were on the cusp of exhaustion and weary from burying our men and women. Many of us didn’t really understand why we were at war to begin with. After all, Iraq nor Afghanistan had anything to do with the events of 9/11. Then here comes this smooth talking, smart Senator, who belonged to the opposite party than the current President of the time, and he claimed to be against these wars. He even vowed to end these wars if elected. Long story short, the majority bought it and place him in the White House as the new Commander-in-Chief. Good times coming, right? Wrong. We didn’t get an end to the undeclared, unconstitutional wars we found ourselves in. In fact, we started more of these wars under his administration. Not only that, but the expansion of many programs through executive actions.
The N.S.A. was protected and expanded upon. The T.S.A. was now taking over security jobs in our airports that were once held by the private sector. The Patriot act was replaced by the Freedom Act. And our debt was out of hand through over spending and foreign aid. Not to mention the dreaded N.D.A.A. bill that was signed in 2012. So much has happened during this administration that it is hard to fit in this article so I will just stay on point.
Societies or communities that are self governed are generally doing better and thriving. Every thing from community funded schools to neighborhood watch groups seem to provide a better quality of life and reach their objective better, faster, and with greater results than government programs designed to accomplish the same. I guess at this point it would be better if I asked the question do we need government at all? At the end of the day we all need some form of structure. Minimal and effective, but structure nonetheless.
So, why can’t we provide these services ourselves and still maintain the Republic. We can and we should be taking it back. We need to hold these officials accountable who break their oath of protecting the Constitution. The only thing the government should provide is national defense and an honest monetary system. They have failed on both occasions.
The Federal Reserve is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg and is not open to an audit or even government oversight. And out national defense has become a cash cow for the military industrial complex and have hampered our trade relations with foreign nations. Not only have they failed at their only responsibilities, but face no consequences for doing so.
How would a self government society work and who would make the decisions? Well I do not have all the answers and will not pretend to, but this answer is really simple. We would. We would make the decisions based on our needs as a community, as free people, as a collective group of individual, sovereign citizens. Our foreign policy could be changed through trading and open dialogue. Our monetary system could be changed through trading, bartering, and using value back currency instead of printing money out of thin air, that is backed by nothing, then charged interest on. This is and should be unaccepted to all. It feeds banks at our expense and cuts out the middle class which is the backbone of the country. Entrepreneurial, innovation, creation, and small business is being wasted in this country as many are feeling hopeless do to regulations and over reach from the same people that swore an oath to protect them.
We are heading down a dangerous and slippery slope of world government that will dictate how we live our lives instead of being in charge of our own free will and decisions. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is our responsibility, but we will never truly achieve this until we hold those accountable for taking away our way of life. If not now, when? We have the authority, per Constitution, to change our government. Do we have the will power to change things? Do we have the passion? These are trying times and how we handle them will not only affect us, but those that come after us. Do the right thing and help restore the Republic.
