The Propaganda Wars are in Full-Swing

#FakeNews

It took me a few minutes to stop laughing when I read it. First, I would like to know how “fake accounts” are identified. Second, if there truly are 250 million of them (which I doubt), then it didn’t happen without help from Facebook. Third, What does “generated BILLIONS of shares” even mean?

So far, this is laughable, and we’re only at the end of the first paragraph. It continues…

#FreeMedia

Okay, they’re asking for four things:

  • Tell the Truth about fake users and fake news through independent audits
    • Who gets to define fake users and news?
  • Ban the Bots
    • Again, how does one identify a ‘bot?
    • A better question would be “Why are there fake bots?”
    • This is essentially asking for a safe space on the Internet.
  • Alert the Public when exposed to fake news and correct the record
    • This was the province of the fourth estate (the free press), before it became dominated by large corporation and was centralized.
    • Again, who decides what is fake an what is not, and what the corrected record should be?
    • Can you imagine?  Storm Alerts, Amber Alerts, Health Alerts, and now Fake News Alerts?
  • Fund an army of Fact-Checkers
    • And there it is–a government-funded army of fact-checkers to keep us “safe” from ‘bots and fake news?  No chance for abuse, here, is there.
    • Why do we need somebody else to tell us what is true or not?  The press had that job and they were corrupted by Big Business, but I’m sure it will be different, this time, right?

The 11 Worst Fact-Checks By Facebook’s New Fact-Checkers


Facebook has decided to clamp down on the supposed epidemic of fake news by appointing an assortment of “fact-checkers” to vet their news feed.

The problem is that these fact-checkers — PolitiFact, FactCheck.org, Snopes, Associated Press and ABC News — are all slanted to the left and have a bad habit of inserting their progressive opinions into “fact-checks” instead of simply being objective.

Here are 11 of the worst “fact-checks” by the five Facebook fact-checkers.

1. PolitiFact has tried to claim that President Barack Obama never went on an apology tour. PolitiFact did this multiple times when Mitt Romney was hammering Obama over the apology tour. In their initial 2010 fact-check, PolitiFact’s ruling was lengthy to the point where they even quoted multiple experts on what exactly the word apology means and compared Obama’s statements to apologies made by Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

“Yes, there is criticism in some of his speeches, but it’s typically leavened by praise for the United States and its ideals, and often he mentions other countries and how they have erred as well,” PolitiFact wrote. “There’s not a full-throated, sincere apology in the bunch. And so we rate Romney’s statement False.”

The one thing missing from PolitiFact’s post: the actual definition of the term “apology” from a dictionary, which is “an admission of error or discourtesy accompanied by an expression of regret.”

Here are five statements Obama made during the apology tour:

  • “In America, there’s a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”
  • “Another issue that confronts all democracies as they move to the future is how we deal with the past. The United States is still working through some of our own darker periods in our history.”
  • “While the United States has done much to promote peace and prosperity in the hemisphere, we have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms.”
  • “Don’t be discouraged that we have to acknowledge potentially we’ve made some mistakes. That’s how we learn.”
  • “Unfortunately, faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions. … I also believe that all too often our government made decisions based on fear rather than foresight; that all too often our government trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions. Instead of strategically applying our power and our principles, too often we set those principles aside as luxuries that we could no longer afford. And during this season of fear, too many of us — Democrats and Republicans, politicians, journalists, and citizens — fell silent. In other words, we went off course.”

While it’s true that Obama is not explicitly saying he’s sorry for America’s actions, he was making these statements as if he was talking to a priest during a confession–he laid out what he thought America’s sins and that the country should do better. Obama was indirectly saying “I’m sorry.” PolitiFact’s ruling should have been “True.”

Veterans Organizing “Like a Military Unit” to Defend DAPL Protesters from Militarized Police

We couldn’t wait for dramatic change, evidence of the shift, and the take-down of the cabal. Now it’s here, and while it may not be what we expected, it IS historic, and there’s no denying Humanity is standing up for their rights, across the globe.

The most notable aspect of the protest at Standing Rock is that the People are completely unarmed, yet still the establishment abuse them and try to crush their efforts in the most brutal ways.

We may not be in a position to join a militia, but we CAN send food, or donate so others can send food and supplies, (see the links below) and we can also share this story.

A friend at work was unaware of the Standing Rock battle until I told her, and the mainstream media twists the story so helping people understand the real situation is important.

We can send our highest love to all those at Standing Rock and related protests along with our intentions for a peaceful resolution.  ~ BP


Veterans Organizing “Like a Military Unit” to Defend DAPL Protesters from Militarized Police

by Justin Gardner, November 22nd 2016

Resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is about to get a major boost. On Dec. 4, U.S. military veterans — possibly numbering in the hundreds — plan to gather “like a military unit” to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Having witnessed the police state brutality inflicted on Native Americans attempting to protect sacred land and natural resources, the former service members feel compelled to stand with the Standing Rock Sioux.

According to the Veterans for Standing Rock GoFundMe page:

“We are veterans of the United States Armed Forces, including the U.S. Army, United States Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard and we are calling for our fellow veterans to assemble as a peaceful, unarmed militia at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation on Dec 4-7 and defend the water protectors from assault and intimidation at the hands of the militarized police force and DAPL security.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, the first Native American member of Congress and a combat war veteran, will be joining the act of resistance, according to the Facebook page Veterans Stand for Standing Rock.

As Task and Purpose notes, federal government ignored their duty under the National Historic Preservation Act to consult the Standing Rock Sioux before approving DAPL. Some of the pipeline construction will take place on sacred land that was taken from the tribe over the past 150 years, and the pipeline will be buried under the tribe’s drinking water source.

While federal government abandoned Native Americans once again, law enforcement are acting as militarized protection services for Energy Transfer Partners, the Texas-based company behind the 1,170-mile pipeline. State and local governments are set to reap millions in taxes once the oil begins flowing.

Numerous violent crackdowns have already been carried out by cops in riot gear – drenching protestors with water cannons in freezing temperatures, blowing arms apart with concussion grenades, choking protestors with tear gas and sending people into cardiac arrest.

“This country is repressing our people,” said Michael Wood, a Marine Corps veteran and former Baltimore police officer. “If we’re going to be heroes, if we’re really going to be those veterans that this country praises, well, then we need to do the things that we actually said we’re going to do when we took the oath to defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic.”

The main man behind it all is Wes Clark, Jr., son of Gen. Wesley Clark, a former Supreme Allied Commander who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004. Clark Sr. called for action on climate change, and this motivation is also driving his son to fight against DAPL.

Wes Clark, Jr., is best known as a co-host for the Young Turks, and sees the Dec. 4 resistance at DAPL as “the most important event up to this time in human history.

“We’re not going out there to get in a fight with anyone. They can feel free to beat us up, but we’re 100% nonviolence.”

Clark and Wood say they are prepared to take a bullet for the cause, and they are going in well-prepared. The veterans will don old military uniforms and be equipped with body armor, ear plugs and gas masks.

“Vets Standing For Standing Rock was announced via an official sounding letter formatted like a five-paragraph military operation order, breaking down the “opposing forces” — “Morton County Sheriff’s office combined with multiple state police agencies and private security contractors” — “Mission,” “Execution” and “Logistics,” among other things. A packing list virtually mirrors the ones issued to soldiers preparing to deploy to the field (minus the weapons). But there are also parts of the document that read like a revolutionary manifesto. Under the section titled “Friendly Forces,” for example, the op order states, “we are there to put our bodies on the line, no matter the physical cost, in complete nonviolence to provide a clear representation to all Americans of where evil resides.”

Clark and Wood have an “operations order” in place to so they can organize “like a military unit” to carry out their goals. With a group of possibly 500 veterans and other brave souls, they will lock arms and cross the Missouri River to non-violently confront militarized police armed with rifles, mace, batons and dogs. Traditional Sioux war songs will be played as they attempt to peacefully surround the drill pad from which the pipeline will be bored under the river.

“It’s simple and we have clearly defined goals, so people don’t get caught up in the confusion,” said Wood. “One of the issues the police are going to face is that our level of planning and coordination is vastly superior to theirs, so they may end up with a problem when it comes to that.”

Even if the veterans are unsuccessful in stopping DAPL, the confrontation is sure to draw national attention — even from a mainstream media that have virtually ignored the corporate and government abuse being carried out on Native Americans in the interest of big oil.
