What Is The Real Purpose Behind “Fake News” Propaganda?

****************************************

Here is the first problem with modern political discourse . . .  They assert immediately that their position is the only valid position without verification. When confronted with rational responses and ample evidence, they dismiss everything instead of pondering what you have handed them. After this line is crossed, there is no point in continuing the debate. It will go on forever.

This is one of the great tragedies of the Saul Alinsky method of political confrontation; it has bred entire generations of people who now believe that there is no objective truth. They think everything is relative,. . .  and the ends therefore justify the means. Using dishonest measures to win the fight becomes acceptable. . .

At first glance, this is what the entire “fake news” meme supported by the mainstream media seems to be about.

The MSM has proven itself utterly ineffective against the rise of the alternative media. . . there is a very good and obvious reason for this. Today, . . .Facts and evidence are uncovered in real time. Beyond this, the alternative media offers something the masses have rarely ever had — choice. People can now look at all sides of an issue and all available evidence and decide for themselves what conclusions make the most sense. . . The mainstream media’s purpose has never been to convey the unfettered “news.”  Rather, their purpose has always been to manipulate public opinion, and we saw this revealed undeniably during the 2016 election. . .

Instead of admitting wrongdoing after this embarrassment, the MSM has decided to double down and escalate the accusation that the alternative media is “fake news.” . . .

Think about it; the MSM is already clearly dying. . . but it seems that this tactic will only bring MORE web traffic to the sites listed. . . People who are curious will be compelled to then visit the alternative sites to see what all the fuss is about. . . The entire set-up of the fake news meme hurts the mainstream news more than it helps them.

The next major story linked to fake news has been the assertion . . . that the alternative media is actually a front for Russian hacking and propaganda. I predicted this development two years ago in my article ‘When War Erupts Patriots Will Be Accused Of  Aiding “The Enemy.”’

I argued that a war is being engineered between Eastern and Western powers, and that this war will likely be an economic war. . . Such a conflict might be used by the elites in the West to rout out the alternative media as agents of Russian propaganda. .

It would appear that everything I warned about two years ago is now happening. . . The coming economic war will be based on a false paradigm — the false East/West paradigm. . . Eastern nations are just as controlled by central banking elites and globalist interests as Western nations. . .

I consistently warned . . .the liberty movement to be careful about cheerleading too much for Russia and Putin, not only because he is controlled opposition, but because eventually we would be caught up in a media war that would label us as enemy conspirators.  Remaining (rightly) critical of Putin was the best way to avoid being labelled as a member of the “fake news,” or a purveyor of Russian propaganda. . .

My belief is that conservative movements and the alternative media are being allowed into a position of cultural authority. The globalists are stepping out of the way (for now) as we grow in power. They are doing this in preparation for the final stage of an economic collapse they have been gestating since at least 2008. They are doing this because their goal is to set us up as scapegoats for a global disaster that will be remembered for centuries to come. . .

The globalists know that at this stage the fake news meme will only HELP US, rather than hurt us. That is to say, the elites are throwing the leftist media to the wolves and the Russian propaganda claims will only make the MSM look more ridiculous.  The globalists see the writing on the wall . . . Instead of trying to obstruct us or fight us directly, I believe the elites plan to co-opt us or co-opt our image. . . The end game here is to destroy the underlying principles of liberty movements; to make future generations reel in horror at the very mention of conservatives and national sovereignty.

The elites are playing a very complex strategy of fourth-generation warfare. . .

I predict that Trump will . . .go after the mainstream media, not the alternative media, and that many conservatives will support him even though questions of constitutionality will increase. I believe the fake news meme will backfire and that the MSM will die off as a result.

The right wing gains unprecedented political sway, only to be met with economic and social disaster. I believe that the game is far from over in the fight between globalists and sovereignty activists. I believe they cannot defeat us directly, so they now hope to defeat us indirectly, or, trick us into defeating ourselves. In reality, the game is just beginning.

  1. “Fake news” is fake news because it’s not new(s) at all. The Left has been trading in fake news forever. This latest discovery of “fake news” is just a clever ploy to manipulate people into seeing the MSM as the standard bearer for truth, while others will be tainted with the “fake” label.

    It’s a very interesting theory put forth by Mr. Smith, but I’m not sure I buy it. It’s not that I don’t think the leftist elites are above such a scheme. It’s just that I don’t think they ever voluntarily “step aside” and willingly relinquish power to the enemy (i.e. us) if they can help it. They risk too much of their handy work being undone that way. I think they wanted and fully expected Hillary to win and were preparing to continue their assault on the free world through her; but Trump threw a monkey wrench into their plans. The next best thing now for them is to hope for a timely economic collapse and conflict with Russia, China and others and to do whatever they can to help that along.

    Trump had better be very careful and very smart in how he deals with the Left from this point on, or he will be outplayed. These are not “nice people,” as he occasionally likes to say. They’re hoping he’ll fail in his mission to make America great again and they’re going to do everything in their power to see that he does. If he has any brains in his head he’ll never forget that.

    • CW, I think you are confusing “the elites” with the Left. That is not Brandon’s view.

      The elites are using the political dichotomy to forward their agenda, but aren’t part of either side, other than by convenience. They use one side, and then the other. That’s why they can abandon one to promote the other, so long as it promotes the greater consolidation of wealth and power in their hands. Their only loyalty is to themselves with a multigenerational view of ends and means.

      I would never have brought Brandon to TPT had he not predicted Brexit when it was down 30 points, and Trump in August 2015. He’s not on a bandwagon, but is predicting, and cautioning about, future events based on the hidden vested interests involved, and revealing a rationale that makes sense. He too is a lover of Liberty, but doesn’t see Party as the answer

      Are the hidden elites God, and can they not be overthrown? Of course not! They ARE satanically inspired, and he has already been condemned to the Lake of Fire as a loser. But, in the meantime, until Messiah comes, this is Satan’s world. He is paying the piper, so he will call the tune. God will say when his party is finally over.

      In the meantime, we need to keep a weather eye, and be aware of the threats that confront us.

      I HOPE Trump can confound their desire to undermine the world. Europe is obviously a weak reed to lean on, so we must become the unshakeable Fortress America again, against all comers!

      How that plays out remains to be seen.

  2. Like the wicked witch when Dorothy poured water on her, the MSM is melting. Perhaps more slowly than the witch did, because they’re hanging on by their teeth right now by whining and accusing 24/7, but I’d agree that at some point they could disappear.

    I’m not so sure though that Smith and the elites he speaks of aren’t underestimating the new mood in the US, mainly conservatives. For the first time in 8 years, they have a shot at some semblance of conservativeness and that’s created a mood not seen in a long time. That’s not to say the president-elect will BE a conservative, but the people may be more demanding that government go in that direction. Not sure how that fits into the elites’ war scenario, but never underestimate Americans. They’ll surprise you every time.

    • I’m hopeful you are right in that regard, Kathy.

      Trump is not a Conservative, but he does believe in the Rule of Law, and has promised to nominate a strict constructionist to the SCOTUS. Plus his budget director nominee is a rabid balanced budget advocate.

      Though this would be deflationary, that is NOT a bad thing, other than to Keynesians, it is just a different, and more rational approach.

      I like what I see in Trump’s cabinet picks, with possible exceptions for the Goldman Sachs guys. That’s what gives me hope!

  3. I had to leave to get to church, but now I’ve arrived, I can say this is a continuation of Brandon’s thesis that the elites have engineered the success of the populist movements worldwide to scapegoat them for the long predicted Long Wave economic collapse. He has now added the alt-media to the matrix of scapegoats.

    Hopefully the new policies will generate a renewed boom that will forestall that collapse for awhile.

    We’ll see!
