“Who are the men who without our realizing it, give us our ideas, tell us whom to admire and whom to despise, what to believe about the ownership of public utilities, about the tariff, about the price of rubber, about the Dawes Plan, about immigration; who tell us how our houses should be designed, what furniture we should put in them, what menus we should serve on our table, what kind of shirts we must wear, what sports we should indulge in, what plays we should see, what charities we should support, what pictures we should admire, what slang we should affect, what jokes we should laugh at?” ~ Edward Bernays, Propaganda

Authored by Edward Bernays and published in 1928, the book Propaganda still holds its position as the gold standard for influencing and manipulating public behavior. Drawing on his expertise in psychology while using the language of manipulation, Bernays pioneered social engineering via mass media, and his work lives on in the distorted, statist, consumer world we have today.

But who are the ones behind the curtain telling us what to think by directing our attention onto the things which serve interests?

Will you get lost in the Fourth Industrial Revolution? Most people I asked don’t even know what that is, but it’s happening all around us right now. This system is about technological evolution… evolving us.

‘Records show that alleged child molester Kevin Spacey flew on the infamous ‘Lolita Express’ – the private jet owned by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein – along with former President Bill Clinton.

The revelation has resurfaced in the aftermath of claims by actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey sexually assaulted him when he was a 14-year-old boy

after a party at Spacey’s apartment in 1986 when Spacey, then 24, picked up Rapp, placed him on his bed and climbed on top of him.

Spacey subsequently apologized for the incident, but deflected by making the story about how he was now living as a gay man.

The media dutifully obliged and the gravity of the sexual assault claim has been obfuscated to some extent by the press focusing on the House of Cards actor’s sexuality.

In 2008, financier Jeffrey Epstein, whose friends included some of the most powerful people on the planet, was convicted of soliciting an under-age girl for prostitution.

Spacey was on board Epstein’s private jet with Bill Clinton when it flew from JFK Airport into the Azores before the former President and the actor enjoyed a tour of Africa.’

PROBABLY 10 TIMES THAT

 

For years, actor and former child star Corey Feldman has been warning anybody who would listen that Hollywood is a place where adults have more inappropriate contact with children than probably anywhere else in the world.

So it’s unsurprising given the renewed focus on sexual assault and harassment brought about by the Harvey Weinstein scandal that Feldman’s accusations would receive renewed attention, considering he made the media rounds as recently as 2016 to talk about how a pedophile ring in Hollywood abused him and his friend, fellow actor Corey Haim – actions Feldman blames for Haim’s eventual death from a drug overdose.

And yesterday, he returned to the “Today” show and, during an interview with Matt Lauer vowed to release the names of six men who he alleges participated in the abuse of himself, Haim and other young stars. The interview followed Feldman’s announcement in a YouTube video last week that he was launching an Indiegogo page to try and raise money for a feature film about pedophilia in Hollywood that he hopes to direct. However, as Lauer pointed out, Feldman’s target budget – $10 million – appears lofty. But the former child star appears determined to tell his story the way he wants it to be told.

REALLY NO SURPRISE AT THE INTERNET POST BUT:

As many predicted, it appears the Harvey Weinstein scandal which exposed rampant sexual abuse in Hollywood by powerful movers and shakers and a corresponding cover-up “culture of silence” was just the tip of the iceberg. Overnight, Kevin Spacey issued what was clearly an already prepared and carefully crafted statement in response to bombshell allegations published by Buzzfeed a mere hours prior late Sunday night wherein actor Anthony Rapp alleged he was sexually assaulted by Spacey when Rapp was only 14-years old. And far from denying the allegations it appears that Spacey has more or less confirmed the assault on the then child actor who emerged as a Broadway star in the musical “Rent”, and who currently plays Lt. Stamets on “Star Trek: Discovery”.

Spacey posted his statement to Twitter, which actually reads as confirmation of the shocking allegations while attempting to obfuscate, saying, “I’m beyond horrified to hear his story. I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago. But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years.”

The Golden Rule
I have so far kept away from this issue, even though there has been, and is, a mountain of relevant information and evidence supporting the extent of child abuse, right to the very top of the “tree”.

Five former presidents of the United States came together for a hurricane relief benefit, and their photo-op with musician Lady Gaga led to a surprising reaction—the Internet loved it! Not only did the public put politics aside, it also seems to have forgotten about all of the things these men have done to give them a very different title: War Criminal.

“Nothing more beautiful than everyone putting their differences aside to help humanity in the face of catastrophe. #OneAmericaAppeal,” Gaga wrote on Twitter.

Here are a few of the highlights from each presidency:

WTF

The mystery is over. After vanishing since last Thursday, wounded Las Vegas security guard Jesus Campos has been found… On the set of ‘Ellen’.

As we noted previously, the general story of Campos’ disappearance appears to have been confirmed by ABC journalist Stephanie Wash, who tweeted Thursday evening:

Media scrum tonight as we learn security officer shot in Vegas attack, Jesus Campos’ whereabouts are unknown.”

 

“Jesus Campos was set to do 5 intvs tonight per union president, but they’ve lost contact. ‘We were in a room & we came out & he was gone,’” she also tweeted.

Then, David Hickey of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) told reporters Friday that he got a text the night before saying Jesus Campos was taken to a UMC Quick Care facility, though he did not specify where or whom the text came from.

As police frantically continue to find a motive for the Las Vegas murderer, both sides of the political spectrum — equally as frantic — search for anything that ties him to their political foes. Now it appears that there is a new narrative surfacing from multiple outlets that Stephen Paddock was a conspiracy theorist who thought 9/11 was an inside job.

Rest assured, if police had any evidence linking this murderous psychopath to an extreme right, extreme left, or terrorist group, this would’ve been made public by now. We have seen an unprecedented length of time go by, not only without surveillance footage but with no hints as to why Paddock shot into a crowd of 22,000 innocent people. However, it looks like this may start to change.

Speaking of “the media entertainment complex” in the wake of the Weinstein scandal, Gainor said, “This is one of the times when you truly understand how corrupt the whole process is.”

“It’s not just entertainment media,” added Gainor, “It’s news media, who are beholden to powerful people like Harvey Weinstein to get celebrities on their shows. If you offend him, if you kiss up to him, you get different results.”

We hadn’t covered the recent Las Vegas Shooting, until now! 
When you read the information linked and quoted you’ll understand what compelled me to finally address the incident in Las Vegas.

Task and Purpose- Airforce Surgeon Describes Aftermath of Las Vegas Shooting

“Just after 11:30 pm on Oct. 1, Air Force Maj. Charles Chesnut awoke to an alarming cryptic alert from Air Combat Command’s AtHoc Emergency Mass Notification System: Avoid downtown Las Vegas. An hour and a half earlier, at 10:08 pm 64-year-old Stephen Paddock had opened fire from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay casino and resort on a crowd of 22,000 revelers gathered below for a music festival.

“I was asleep in my bed, just like every Sunday before that,” Chesnut, a general surgeon with the 99th Medical Group out of Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, said in an Oct. 3 interview. But that didn’t stop him from springing into action. “I saw the catastrophic events that were unfolding, and I said, ‘This is what we train for … they’re going to need some help.’”
