Are you shocked, confused, and frustrated by the nonstop stream of lies that are being uttered by the United States Government, by the Mainstream Media, and their talking mouths?
You're not alone, as people continue to turn off their televisions in record numbers and seek out the truth through alternative means, such as social media and non-mainstream news outlets.
Many people are waking up to the fact that the MSM is completely corrupt and in the tank for Hillary . Even those who support her are coming out in increasingly larger numbers and stating that the debate on the major networks is completely one-sided.
Some people foolishly laugh at this fact with glee, while others are intelligent enough to know that this blatant propaganda and manipulation could one day be turned on them, just as it is currently being used to destroy the reputation of Donald Trump, the Republican nominee and potentially the next President of the United States.
I've heard a number of people ask the following question: "How is this legal?". The Mainstream Media is expected to be unbiased and fair. They are expected to view both sides and not get directly involved in the debate; yet, as we see, they have championed Hillary Clinton and are doing EVERYTHING in their power to manipulate and confuse the general public.
There is a word for what the MSM and the current sitting government are engaged in, and that word is propaganda. Once upon a time, it was illegal for this weapon to be directed at and used on its own citizens, but no more.
You may have never heard of the US Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948, better known as the Smith–Mundt Act, but that does not make it any less real. This act was enacted to protect the citizens of the United States against its own government.
Yet, ironically enough, this act was struck down in its old form and "reborn" as the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 , while Hillary Clinton was STILL in office. A very odd coincidence indeed.
By any intelligent person's measure, this act has very little in common with the original act and is a twisted, perverted version of its original self, which allows the United States government to engage in direct propaganda on its own citizens, LEGALLY!
Yes, you did read that correctly, the US government is now legally allowed to engage in propaganda on its citizens, therefore allowing them to manipulate and shape the thoughts of the people if they deem it "necessary".
With this bit of knowledge, you can now begin to truly appreciate and understand why Donald Trump is being attacked so viciously and hatefully from all sides, with little to NO regard to common decency or the truth.
Donald Trump is vowing to strike down the old elite establishment and propel the people back in power. This, understandably from the point of view of the establishment, cannot be allowed, as it will mean the end of everything they have worked so hard to achieve.
George Orwell's 1984 Ministry of Truth has come to life in the real world. The MSM is corrupt, the government is corrupt and they have made this corruption legal through their warped and perverted laws. The time for change is here, the time for action is now, because time is running out.
