The CIA and similar intelligence agencies are continuing their involvement in the news media to mold thought and opinion in ways scarcely imagined by the lay public. This is yet another dimension of the security matrix which is being constructed by the shadow government to control content and to find those who may be publishing forbidden intelligence and conspiracy theories that undermine the moves toward a New World Order. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with media and pop culture analyst, Dr. Darrell Y. Hamamoto about FACTUAL SIZE - C.I.A. SPIES AND THEIR LITTLE LIES.





The saber-rattling that is now triggering nuclear paranoia is now underway yet again.  Yesterday it was reported that President Biden was on the phone for more than two hours with Chinese president Xi Jinping.

The Washington Post is citing a senior administration official to say Presidents Joe Biden and Xi Jinping were speaking about Taiwan tensions and that things were not looking so good as both leaders had a heated exchange.

China state sources are reporting that - in a moment perhaps intent on humiliating the President - Xi warned Biden undefinedthose who play with fire will get burned.undefined

Bloomberg cited Xi as saying, based on early Chinese state media reports, that undefinedChina firmly opposes separatist moves toward Taiwan independence and interference by external forces, and never allows any room for Taiwan independence forces in whatever form.undefined As usual, Biden was urged to stick by the one-China policy, with the US president reiterating what the US intends to do.

In the face of Xiundefineds firm words on the Taiwan issue, Biden affirmed that the United States does not back Taiwan independence.

Not only did Xi again lay down Chinaundefineds undefinedred linesundefined on Taiwan, but the Chinese leader stressed Beijing vehemently opposes the undefinedintervention of other powers,undefined according to quotes in China state media.

The warning comes just hours after the USS Ronald Reagan nuclear-powered undefinedsuper carrierundefined has entered waters of the South China Sea, triggering PLA snap military drills in the area in response.

After multiple US Navy sail-throughs of both the Taiwan Strait and near the Paracel islands this summer, Beijing has ramped up its rhetoric threatening a undefinedforceful responseundefined - particularly if House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi follows through with her trip to Taipei next month.

Can you imagine the possibility of a major war with China over the shooting down of a plane with Pelosi on it?

I can just imagine the mixed reactions form those who support her and those who despise her undefined let alone a war declared based on a political snafu.

From Beijingundefineds point of view Xi put Biden on notice over all these recent US maneuvers, saying in essence, Iundefinedm the captain now!

The message this morning is that the PLA is now preparing for war.

The Chinese Peopleundefineds Liberation Army (PLA) 80th Group Army generated over 300,000 thumbs-up online in 12 hours on Friday, amid high morale among Chinese soldiers ahead of the 95th anniversary of the founding of the PLA and escalating tensions across the Taiwan Straits.

The post on Sina Weibo had received more than 19,000 comments as of press time, with many online citizens commenting excitedly undefinedPLA soldiers, fighting! We support you guys!undefined

The 80th Group Army posted a comment saying, undefinedwe must bear in mind the fundamental responsibility of preparing for war and charge on the journey of a strong army.undefined The comment has received 8,000 thumbs-up.

Chinese President Xi Jinping said previously that only those capable of fighting can stop battles, and only those prepared for war donundefinedt have to fall into war.

Again we are seeing a geopolitical surge in moving forward with operations that were put on hold during the Trump administration-and the biggest task facing the United States is how to handle public opinion and the distribution of information that wonundefinedt harm or otherwise send a message that there is a lack of faith in this administration.

It is without doubt that the wolves are eating their way through the sheep and rendering them immobile, and incapable of anything only worshiping the blood lust war narrative. And they have been walking amongst us in full sight.

That makes it all the more macabre is the so called  ‘free press’ and TV presenters  have either been genuinely Mind Controlled or are indeed the Devil’s Apprentices.

But this has always been the suspicion and now it appears that the trust between the media and the people is fading rapidly.

If those running US foreign policy feel that a new geo-political order is being born “at breathtaking speed” then they are capable of extreme acts. And they have all the mainstream western media behind them, barking out their non-stop propaganda.

There are world threats of war but at the moment, we are at war in many ways and these micro-wars are being created by intelligence ops all over the world.

We are inexorably moving toward a global war that will become nuclear if an international movement doesn’t quickly arise to stop it.  Most people bemoan the thought of such a war to end all wars, but refuse to analyze the factors leading to it.

It seems so unimaginable, but It happens step-by-step, and many steps have already been taken with more coming soon.  It’s so obvious that most can’t see it, or don’t want to.

The corporate mainstream media are clearly part of the continuation of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, and those who still rely on them for the truth are beyond reach.

Operation Mockingbird was a secret CIA campaign to spread disinformation and false stories to foreign governments during the Cold War. The CIA did this by manipulating the media into focusing on propaganda, sabotage, and subversion.

It was later revealed in Congressional hearings that the CIA operatives were literally paying off editors and reporters and most mainstream news outlets: the New York Times, CBS, Washington Post, Newsweek, AP, Reuters, and countless others.

More and more of the outlets from which Americans get their information are being filled not just with garden variety establishment loyalists, but with longstanding members of the U.S. intelligence community which could very well be operatives of the Deep State conspiracy that operates under the radar to fuether the agendas of the intel groups under the employ of those with enough money to shape the world for the new order.

Both active and ex-CIA operatives are now being used as consultants on many of the major cable news networks.

What is less well known is the CIA is engaged in tipping the balance in the domestic as well as international contests. That’s why it’s secret, and why all the corporate privateers protect it. They share the same business ideology. CIA officers, PR people, journalists, politicians, and academics who get paid to give “expert” testimony on Fox or MSNBC, are knowingly manipulating social and political movements here in the US.

The CIA sets up Twitter accounts and Facebook pages and social websites to move people into mass organizations to achieve its secret ends.

It stands to reason that with a new cold war underway and a possible major war being planned that the CIA is in charge of handling and infiltrating every major outlet of information that pours into the zeitgeist on a daily basis.

Time and again you see connections between the plutocratic class which effectively owns America’s elected government, the intelligence and defense agencies which operate behind thick veils of secrecy in the name of “national security” to advance agendas which have nothing to do with the wishes of the electorate, and the mass media machine which is used to manufacture the consent of the people to be governed by this exploitative power structure.

After World War II, the Central Intelligence Agency has been a major force in US and foreign news media, exerting considerable influence over what the public sees, hears and reads on a regular basis. CIA publicists and journalists alike will assert they have few, if any, relationships, yet the seldom acknowledged history of their intimate collaboration indicates a far different story–indeed, one that media historians are reluctant to examine.

The CIA and similar intelligence agencies’ have had continued involvement in the news media to mold thought and opinion in ways scarcely imagined by the lay public.

Now the media does not seem to want to hide the fact that they have now brought on Intelligence consultants and distributors that have a major conflict of interest.

America can now expect a consistent fountain of disinformation to flow unhindered from the mouths of Deep State actors on the major news networks, and you can also expect them to all prop up their exploitative globalist power establishment and advance its geopolitical agendas.

Now what I am about to say may or may not shock you but it matters that this be reported to the world in order for it to be a matter of record. The mainstream media wonundefinedt tell you this but there are some conspiracy theorists who have speculated about this information.

The idea that social networking sites and applications such as Facebook, Twitter and their competitors can facilitate communication and information sharing amongst diverse groups and individuals is by now a cliché to everyone.

It should come as no surprise then, that the secret state and the  grifters whom they serve, have zeroed-in on the explosive growth of these technologies. One can be certain however, the Technocrats aren’t tweeting their restaurant preferences or finalizing plans for after work drinks.

No, researchers on both sides of the Atlantic are busy as proverbial bees building a “total information” surveillance system, one that will, so they hope, provide police and security agencies with what they  call “actionable intelligence.”

This is yet another dimension of the security matrix that is being constructed by the shadow government to control content and to find those who may be publishing forbidden intelligence and or conspiracy theory that undermines the moves towards the new world order.

From the times of Ed Snowden we were all aware of a surveillance scheme that simplified–the already formidable U.S. “Main Core” database that “reportedly collects and stores–without warrants or court orders–the names and detailed data of Americans considered to be threats to national security.

There is also a method of  undefinedAutomatic Content Extraction” gleaned from “a variety of sources, such as news, broadcast conversations” that identify “relations between entities, and the events in which these participate.”

How is this accomplished? Why through an exploitation of open source materials of course!

Nothing escapes this panoptic eye. Even popular culture and leisure activities fall under the glare of security agencies and their academic partners in the latest iteration of this truly monstrous privacy-killing scheme.

The CIA has now entered the lucrative market of social networking surveillance in a big way. The CIA’s investment arm, In-Q-Tel, reads your blog posts, keeps track of your Twitter updates–even checks out your book reviews on Amazon.

U.S. Strategic Command and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, have used  The frim “Concepts & Strategies, which has handled media monitoring and translation services for them.

They have always been in the business of looking for   “social media engagement specialists” with Defense Department experience and “a high proficiency in Arabic, Farsi, French, Urdu or Russian.undefined

But as we have seen across the decades, from COINTELPRO to Operation CHAOS, and from Pentagon media manipulation during the run-up to the Iraq war through driftnet warrantless wiretapping of Americans’ electronic communications, the secret state is a law unto itself, a self-perpetuating bureaucracy that thrives on duplicity, fear and cold, hard cash.

An investigative reporter for MintPress News on Monday said it was “very worrying” that Facebook is employing former CIA agents to moderate misinformation policies on the social media platform.

Alan MacLeod, who published a piece last week about ex-CIA agents working at Facebook, reported that the decision to employ them to moderate content was worrying because the CIA has a “long history of infiltrating media organizations.”

“The CIA has a terrible track record from everything from organizing coups to running black sites all over the world to even just planting a load of false information into the public domain to suit their own agenda,” MacLeod said. “We are now relying on these people to tell us what’s fact and fiction and to sort truth and fiction from falsehood online.”

Facebook has struggled to contain misinformation for years. The social media company employs third party fact-checking organizations to reduce the spread of false and harmful content.

MacLeod, who wrote that Facebook has employed dozens of former CIA agents primarily to work in the fields of security or content moderation, says that a limited amount of people are experts in cybersecurity, which would explain why Facebook is looking toward the CIA.

But the reporter said Americans are “not secure from what our own government is doing” the more control that current and former officials have over technology.

We have been told by the mainstream media that Russia and China have flooded the internet with misinformation but there is no guarantee that the CIA isnundefinedt doing the same.

According to a detailed report by Open the Government, Jeff Bezos and Amazon were favorites of the U.S. intelligence “community” from Day One and they still enjoy a rather cozy and lucrative relationship. Currently, more than half of the former government employees hired by Amazon have been from the Defense Department.

Amazon also provides cloud services to the CIA — at a cost of billions. Also, in 2013, Amazon signed a Pentagon IT contract for $10 billion to create the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure program (JEDI). According to the Pentagon, Amazon technology supports their “lethality and enhanced operational efficiency.”

After a more recent CIA-Amazon deal in November 2020, a company spokesperson explained that Amazon is “honored to continue to support the intelligence community as they expand their transformational use of cloud computing.”

Our lives are currently being manipulated and controlled by a shadow government that transcends national borders or loyalty. This corporate-state nexus coerces you into focusing on trivialities like Hollywood, party politics, woke whims, LGBTQ, Critical Race theory, January 6th insurrection, all of the distractions that do nothing to inform you of the encroachment of a world government and the possibilities of war and depopulation agendas.

Meanwhile, the clowns you vote for, the media you watch, and the social media you obsess over are all owned and operated by mostly faceless psychopaths that move effortlessly between the “public” and “private” sectors.

They manufacture our opinions, our desires, our dreams. But their power is so, so tenuous.

If it’s true freedom and autonomy you seek, all you have to do is stop conforming and stop fearing the wrath of the hive mind. Sure, it’s never easy to buck the system but if you don’t, you are living a life of delusion, submission, and fear.
