The War of 2015 – Part 2 – The Propaganda Machine

I’ve been a professional writer for close to twenty years, and I very quickly came to the cynical conclusion that I did not write for my readers. I wrote for the person who signed my paycheck. Even now, I am writing for the One who currently has His signature on my life – God.

If you get ANYTHING out of what I write, you only have God to thank for that.

Unfortunately, most writers have a different kind of paymaster and are beholden to a different god. And, like myself, they know the power of words, and use them to great effect. So, as you watch the propaganda machine rev up, just remember who the writers and broadcasters are really working for.

The War of 2015 – Part 2 – The Propaganda Machine

One of my many favorite quotes about truth, is this one:

“Truth,” it has been said, “is the first casualty of war.”
Philip Snowden, 1st Viscount Snowden

And, we’ve been at war for a very, very long time.

Intellectual Prostitution

Another of my favorite quotes is about journalism, and the news business in general. It comes from John Swinton.

By the 1880s, he’d been in the journalism business for more than 20 years. He’d been the head of the editorial staff for the New York Times for ten years and head of the editorial staff for the New York Sun for eight more, before going on to publish his news sheet, John Swinton’s Paper. In fact, he was so well respected that the journalist community held a banquet in his honor (in 1880).

Someone who did not know Swinton or journalism stood up and offered a toast to the independent press. Swinton replied, to the outrage of many in the audience:

There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.

There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.

(Source: Labor’s Untold Story, by Richard O. Boyer and Herbert M. Morais, published by United Electrical, Radio & Machine Workers of America, NY, 1955/1979. via John Swinton on the independence of the press.)

Those of us who are professional writers know how easy it is to fall into intellectual prostitution. We know how to twist words and phrases to ‘adjust’ the truth to reflect what WE want the truth to be.

Well, for more than a hundred years, we’ve allowed unprincipled men and women to ‘adjust the truth’ for us. We not only allowed them, we believed them.

By the way, I pulled the above from an article
that I wrote over a year ago:

Intellectual Prostitutes


I’ve watched the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed journalism graduates rush out into the world, so that they could write about truth and justice… and change the world.

I would run into such journalists after twenty years – or more – in the business, and would shake my head at the dried-up shadows of their former selves. Being stationed in Jerusalem was second only to Washington D.C. in a journalist’s career, but they got there by selling their soul to the company store. And, they didn’t know how to buy it back.

I guess that I never got caught up in all of that, because I never wanted to be a writer. I never wanted to be a journalist. I did NOT (and still don’t) care if my name appears anywhere – on any byline. Being famous is as useful as… I’m trying to think here …a coin dropped in the middle of an ocean.

All of what you are reading here is an accident – assuming that you are willing to call the Hand of God such a thing. Why God would use an irritable idiot like myself, is a mystery.

But, let’s get to this propaganda machine that I mentioned in the title.

The CIA Propaganda Machine

The CIA is one of the most evil organizations on Earth. I didn’t always believe that. In fact, I only really came to this conclusion over the past few years.

Are there good people working for the CIA?

Absolutely. Many are even Christian and believe that what they are doing is fighting against the forces of evil that threaten America.

But, no one with a conscience rises above a certain point in the hierarchy of the Central Intelligence Agency. No one.

And, within the CIA are black operations groups that are known to only a few people within the CIA, itself. This compartmentalization has allowed evil to live and thrive, and it is the CIA that is a big part of what is happening with ISIS.


There are multiple operations groups handling ISIS, and you won’t know who most of them are – until it is too late. But, there is one operations group that you MIGHT know about, and it’s called MOCKINGBIRD.

It was originally set up to neutralize the Soviet propaganda that was making its way into the US media. It was commendable that the CIA was fighting fire with fire, but what started out as a good thing became… something else. In fact, as the CIA changed into a darker, more sinister organization in the 1960s, Operation MOCKINGBIRD began to change also.

Digging into the evil inside of the CIA would require a whole new website, so I will leave the revelation of all that to others. My concern right now is with Operation Mockingbird, and similar operations groups active within the CIA.

It’s all about propaganda, and propaganda is all about the careful delivery of information that will change the course of how people think – so that they will make the decision that you want them to make.

As you may surmise from how I began this article, we have been the victims of propaganda for hundreds of years. The CIA is just the most recent purveyor of such carefully administered information. In fact, we have become such ardent consumers of propaganda, that we don’t know that it IS propaganda.

So, why am I saying this now?

Because we are witnessing a wave of propaganda – from people who honestly believe what they are telling us.

The Best Propaganda

Here is Lt. General McInerney (ret.) on what he believes is the truth:

Lt. General McInerney Warns of New 9/11 Event

YouTube shortlink:

By the way, my inclusion of this comment by General McInerney is no sign of any disrespect. It is clear to me that he truly believes what he is telling us, and the people who told HIM probably believe it too. And, I suspect that General McInerney is a great man with pure intentions.

In fact, it may even be the absolute truth.

The best propaganda is factually correct information delivered by people who passionately believe that what they are saying is truth.

Please. You must understand that. The most powerful lies are those told by good people who passionately believe in what they are saying. Never allow someone else’s conviction and passion to change your mind about ANYTHING.

And yes, that includes me.

Another 9/11 Attack?

Is there going to be a 9-11-14 attack?

I don’t know, but the fact that this information is being broadcast, at this moment in time, tells me that this is a distinct possibility.

Again, Susan Duclos of,
came through
with yet another excellent article.
Her website is turning into a must-read.
You can read the article where I got the above video, here:

The Current Wave Of Propaganda

So, let’s take a look at the current wave of propaganda that is washing over us, right now:

Isis is a greater geographical threat than al-Qaeda

An American-Led Coalition Can Defeat ISIS

If You Want To Stop ISIS, Here Is What It Will Take

US airstrike in Syria against Isis would be act of war, warns Assad’s regime

White House: ISIS Not Planning to Attack U.S. Homeland — Yet

ISIS an ‘Incredible’ Fighting Force, US Special Ops Sources Say 

Islamic State might have taken advanced MANPADS from Syrian airfield 

When you suddenly see a wave of headlines like that hit you, you know that you are being prepared for something. And, whatever it is, it will be so bad, that you will not want to believe that it was all set up by the very people you have been trusting to protect you.

Discern The Truth

So, the next time you open your paper, ask yourself:

What is it that they are trying to make me believe in, NOW?

It’s hard to discern the truth, until you understand who is lying to you, and why. And, you will never understand the truth, unless you know the Author of The Truth.

You will never know the truth, if Jesus isn’t your Lord and Savior.

I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

  1. Hi, John. So many quotes run through one’s mind on the topic of truth. There is one that has stayed with me through the years. It comes from a work of fiction, “Stranger in a Strange Land” by Robert Heinlein, character Jubal Harshaw speaking:

    “The slickest way to lie is to tell the right amount of truth, then shut up.”

    In the domain of power and influence, outright lies are counter-productive. My observation over the years confirms Jubal’s assessment of the tactics of the “wealthy-beyond-avarice” power elite.

    The second, and most important thing I’ve learned about truth is that ONLY the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY possesses it. Virtually every word that doesn’t echo His is tainted by lies.

    Our task, if you will, is to start with that fact. It seems the entirety of our lives are then spent trying to discern where it all went wrong. If we are faithful, we find ourselves “back in the Garden”.

    Sometimes the pain and anguish of living in a world of only lies is so very, very overwhelming.

  2. Not sure if this means anything but :
    September 11, 2014, is exactly 33 days from the date of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri, on August 9, 2014

    and you know 33 is a favorite # for those illuminati devils, and Most people already know what is happening in Ferguson was structured by the elites to happen the way they wanted it to happen.

    I fear that something horrible is coming very soon !!!
    and I hope people start opening their eyes soon !!!

    also something interesting , not sure about the significance but maybe this day will help to open a great many peoples eyes to the truth :
    Hebrews 9:11-14King James Version (KJV)

    11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

    12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

    13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:

    14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

  3. Greetings John. Thank you for your efforts in composing this article. It’s my prayer that thousands read it and take it to heart. For those with open eyes, deception is an overarching theme of our times. Jesus warned us about it (Matthew 24:24), telling us that if it were possible, even the very elect would be deceived. This thought should send anyone with the slightest pangs of conscience onto their knees in prayer for Divine guidance and protection. For all of us, admitting we can be or have been deceived is a humiliating experience, but a necessary one. It’s a first step toward finding truth. I have found that Bible teachings and Bible prophecy are essential toward shedding light on what is true and what is a lie. When one realizes that we are involved in a very real spiritual WAR, we can begin to grasp the reality of what really is going on behind the scenes, both good and evil. For example, Daniel Chapter 2 teaches us that all global empires war against God, and that only Jesus Christ will bring an end to man’s quest for global dominion. In Daniel 11, we see a vying for power between the King of the North and the King of the South. In the end, we find that they unite in the war against God’s people. This is the lesson: the regional and global powers ALWAYS war against God and His people. When we understand this, we begin to understand the likelihood that actions are being taken to deceive us and ultimately, destroy us. At that point, we realize our survival is only by the working of God. One final thought: why are so many deceived and fail to see through the lies? Because “they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” (2 Thessalonians 2: 10-11)

  4. John, thank you very much, for the links and the compliment. Live Free or Die and I are trying to make All News PipeLine a mixture of the best of the best in Alternative News and your words mean a lot to us.
