This course is designed to provide a fast and easy path to an understanding of government malfeasance.
The topics covered are far from a comprehensive catalog of examples, but should be sufficient to get the point across.
We do not claim that every statement made in every resource is true. Neither should you assume this. Instead, you should weigh all of the evidence together and look for the pattern that emerges.
In 1961, President Eisenhower warned that "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist."
According to Wikipedia, "Post-truth politics is a political culture in which debate is framed largely by appeals to emotion disconnected from the details of policy, and by the repeated assertion of talking points to which factual rebuttals are ignored." In 2002, a senior Bush advisor explained, "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
Noam Chomsky explains to a BBC journalist, "I don't say you're self-censoring. I'm sure you believe everything you're saying. But what I'm saying is, if you believed something different, you wouldn't be sitting where you're sitting."
During a congressional hearing in 1975, the director of the CIA, William Colby testified that the CIA has people who submit pieces to American media. He declined to publicly answer if they have people directly working for the media.
According to a 1977 Rolling Stone cover story, "more than 400 American journalists ... have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency, according to documents on file at CIA headquarters."
Ex-CIA officer John Stockwell admitted that they would make up and submit "pure raw false propaganda" to journalists for publication.
Ex-CIA officer Frank Snepp said, "I am, as an ex-CIA agent, opposed to the disinformation activities in which I was involved. I admit that I was involved and I think it served no useful purpose. Propagandizing the American public or Congress is not the CIA's job."
Ex-CIA officer Ralph McGehee said, "The American people, in my estimation, are the primary target audience of the agency's disinformation operation."
In 2014, German journalist and editor Udo Ulfkotte confessed to being a propagandist for the CIA and the German intelligence agency. He said that intelligence agencies gave him pre-written articles to put his name on, he was bribed and brainwashed by favors, and that he knew he would be fired if he went against the official narrative.
For decades, the US government's "mammoth broadcasting arm" has produced propaganda to promote its interests to foreign audiences. The Smith-Mundt Act prevented this propaganda from being used domestically, but this ban was repealed in 2013.
The US Army publicly recruits "psyops soldiers" to "strategically influence and deceive." They use "cyber warfare and advanced communication techniques across all forms of media" to "change minds and behaviors in the U.S. Army's interest." Army Psychological Operations was "founded during World War I" and "played a critical role" since.
Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov explains the KGB brainwashing techniques used against the American people.
The first official investigation concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK acting alone. However, in 1979 a second official investigation concluded that JFK was "probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy" based on evidence from a police recording that contained gunshot sounds too close together to have come from a single rifle. They also found that the "timing of the impulses on the tape matched the timing of events seen in the film". These findings were corroborated by a peer-reviewed publication in 2001.
American men were drafted to fight in a civil war of a foreign country on the other side of the world. During the course of the war, the US military committed many war crimes, including mass murder of unarmed civilians. In the end the war was lost. Despite the loss, the US continued to exercise hegemonic power for decades to come, which confirms how fallacious it was to justify the war as necessary for national defense against communism.
An ATF informant bought two sawed-off shotguns from Randy Weaver and later asked Weaver to become an informant. When Weaver refused, he was indicted for manufacturing and possessing an unregistered firearm. He refused to appear in court, so government agents laid siege to his house. During the siege they killed his 14 year old son and snipered his wife through a window.
Government agents in a standoff with a heavily armed religious compound deployed miltary tactics and tear gas leading to the compound burning to the ground with men, women, and children still inside.
Timothy McVeigh was convicted of bombing the federal building in Oklahoma City with a truck bomb, but there were two other unexploded bombs found in the building, so the official narrative does not work.
It can be confusing trying to sort out the facts about September 11th. For example, the World Trade Center Building 7 collapse, though suspicious, has an explanation that may sound plausible, at least for non-experts. However, we do know from a declassified document that the US military has considered plans involving hijacking a civilian aircraft, swapping it for a drone mid-flight, blowing up the drone in a false flag attack, and using this as justification for war. The flight paths on September 11th showed intersections and phantoms consistent with such a plan, and there were many other anomalies such as unusual levels of training drills taking place on that day.
Government officials told the American people that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction to justify an invasion. No weapons of mass destruction were ever found.
Several sources have claimed that Obama was born in Kenya, including Obama's literary agent, The East Africa Standard, The Nigerian Observer, NPR, Kenyan National Intelligence, Kenyan Parliament, and Obama's grandmother. Obama also described himself as the "first sitting American president to come from Kenya". A six-month investigation by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office concluded that Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate was a forgery.
According to the official report, police arrived at the school at 9:39am and entered the school at 9:45am. NBC reported that police setup a perimeter and began evacuation at 9:47am. The only public photos of the evacuation were taken 22 minutes later at 10:09am, and they show onlookers standing inside the perimeter. The official report doesn't attempt to explain how this happened: "...the experiences of the many different participants are so different after 9:40 a.m. on December 14, 2012 that the Commission feels it would be a disservice to all to attempt to capture those experiences..."
Defense contractor Edward Snowden leaked a trove of classified government documents proving that the NSA was engaging in mass surveilance of American citizens after 9/11, in violation of the Fourth Amendment.
A Democrat campaign staffer was murdered while walking home late at night, about four months after WikiLeaks exposed Hillary Clinton's emails. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange firmly denied that Russia was the source of the leak and insinuated that Seth Rich was the source. Seymour Hersh claimed to have an FBI report that Seth Rich was negotiating the sale of the emails to WikiLeaks. Ellen Ratner told Ed Bukowsky that she heard directly from Assange that Seth Rich was the source.
The Steele Dossier alleged that Trump colluded with Russia, but no compelling evidence of collusion was ever found and those associated with the dossier have been indicted in the Durham investigation.
According to the official story, a lone gunman with no known motive fired over 1000 bullets at the Route 91 country music festival from the Mandalay Bay hotel, killing 60 people, and then killed himself. But many eyewitnesses say that there were multiple gunmen and nine police bodycams captured machine gun fire sounds a half hour after police found the gunman dead. Also, flight data shows four helicopters arriving at the scene and turning off their transponders just before the shooting started.
Fear propaganda was weaponized against the people to implement unconstitutional and tyrannical lockdowns.
A black man died after a police officer knelt on his neck for about nine minutes. The official autopsy found that he died of a heart attack and had heart disease, hypertension, was COVID-positive, and had fentanyl, meth, and weed in his system. The Black Lives Matter organization, founded and run by self-proclaimed communists, led nationwide protests against police brutality that turned into massive riots targeting innocent private businesses. The media and government seemed to encourage this.
Joe Biden's son left his laptop at a repair shop and the contents were eventually publicly exposed. The laptop contained information about corrupt foreign business deals of the Biden family, potentially implicating Joe Biden. Tony Bobulinksi, an associate of the Bidens, corroborated the findings with further documentation. Despite overwhelming evidence, Biden and government officials claimed that it was Russian disinformation and the mainstream media and big tech censored the story published in the New York Post prior to the election.
There were over 1000 sworn affidavits, video footage, forensic evidence, and statistical evidence of election fraud that was all censored by the mainstream media and big tech. A lawsuit brought by 18 states was dismissed without trial by the Supreme Court.
Trump staged a protest at the US Capitol over the unfair treatment of the election fraud evidence. Despite being both more peaceful and more justified than the George Floyd protests, the government and media labelled it an insurrection and arrested and tortured many of the protesters.
