Class, caste or cast, pick an identity, any identity, just stay trapped in your personal prison cell within the allegorical, governmental, castle basement.


A 21st Century social media divide and conquer propaganda case study.

Do you want to stay mentally imprisoned in your "man cave" or "she shed", as instructed; or do you want to escape the social, cultural and political identity dungeon?

Are you not more than a simple and easily defined demographic?

Propaganda is a weapon.

"Some of the phenomena of this process are criticized—the manipulation of news, the inflation of personality, and the general ballyhoo by which politicians and commercial products and social ideas are brought to the consciousness of the masses. The instruments by which public opinion is organized and focused may be misused. But such organization and focusing are necessary to orderly life."

Societal Role Playing Cast or Caste?

"Role-playing is the changing of one's behaviour to assume a role, either unconsciously to fill a social role, or consciously to act out an adopted role. While the Oxford English Dictionary offers a definition of role-playing as "the changing of one's behaviour to fulfill a social role", in the field of psychology, the term is used more loosely in four senses:"

From Aggressive Overtures to Sexual Assault: Harvey Weinstein’s Accusers Tell Their Stories

Multiple women share harrowing accounts of sexual assault and harassment by the film executive.

By Ronan Farrow"

"Asia Argento, who was born in Rome, played the role of a glamorous thief named Beatrice in the crime drama “B. Monkey,” which was released in the U.S. in 1999. The distributor was Miramax. In a series of long and often emotional interviews, Argento told me that Weinstein assaulted her while they were working together."

"At the time, Argento was twenty-one and had twice won the Italian equivalent of the Oscar. Argento said that, in 1997, one of Weinstein’s producers invited her to what she understood to be a party thrown by Miramax at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc, on the French Riviera. Argento felt professionally obliged to attend. When the producer led her upstairs that evening, she said, there was no party, only a hotel room, empty but for Weinstein: “I’m, like, ‘Where is the ... party?’ ” She recalled the producer telling her, “Oh, we got here too early,” before he left her alone with Weinstein. (The producer denies bringing Argento to the room that night.) At first, Weinstein was solicitous, praising her work. Then he left the room. When he returned, he was wearing a bathrobe and holding a bottle of lotion. “He asks me to give a massage. I was, like, ‘Look, man, I am no ... fool,’ ” Argento told me. “But, looking back, I am a ... fool. And I am still trying to come to grips with what happened.”

"Argento said that, after she reluctantly agreed to give Weinstein a massage..."

"What complicates the story, Argento readily allowed, is that she eventually yielded to Weinstein’s further advances and even grew close to him. Weinstein dined with her, and introduced her to his mother. Argento told me, “He made it sound like he was my friend and he really appreciated me.” She said that she had consensual sexual relations with him multiple times over the course of the next five years..."

"The Defense Information School (DINFOS) is a United States Department of Defense (DoD) school located at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland. DINFOS fulfills the Department of Defense's need for an internal corps of professional journalists, broadcasters, and public affairs professionals. Members from all branches of the U.S. military, DoD civilians and international military personnel attend DINFOS for training in public affairs, print journalism, photojournalism, photography, television and radio broadcasting, lithography, equipment maintenance and various forms of multimedia. The American Council on Education recommends college credit for most DINFOS courses. The Army Information School was founded in 1946 at Carlisle Barracks in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Other branches of the military merged with the Army Information School in 1948 to form the Armed Forces Information School at Fort Slocum, New York. The joint service venture disbanded due to poor enrollment until 1964, when Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Arthur Sylvester chartered DINFOS. DINFOS moved to Fort Benjamin Harrison, just outside Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1965 where it remained until its 1995 move to Fort George G. Meade, Maryland."

Origins: # ME TOO


"In the Republican Party presidential debate on August 6, 2015, Kelly asked whether a man of Trump's temperament ought to be elected president. Kelly's moderating generated a range of media and political reactions and her professionalism was criticized by presidential candidate Trump. Kelly responded to Trump's criticism by saying she would not "apologize for doing good journalism".  Trump declined to attend the Iowa January 28 debate that she moderated. After the debate and off-camera, Kelly referred to Trump as "Voldemort".  Bill Maher complimented Kelly as being "so much better" than the candidates who attended the January 28 debate and argued that she was a more viable candidate for the Republican nomination. In an interview with CBS News Sunday Morning, Kelly reflected that she was disappointed with the lack of support she received from coworker Bill O'Reilly and CNN, the latter airing a Trump event the same time as the debate. In April, at her request,  Kelly met with Trump at Trump Tower, having "a chance to clear the air". The following month, after interviewing Trump and being met with mixed reception, she expressed interest in doing another one with him. In June, she criticized Trump for his claims against Gonzalo P. Curiel's credibility.  In October, a contentious discussion between Kelly and Newt Gingrich on The Kelly File regarding Trump's sexual comments in a 2005 audio recording gained widespread social media reaction."

Gossip is the basic building block for black propaganda.

"A gossip columnist is someone who writes a gossip column in a newspaper or magazine, especially a gossip magazine. Gossip columns are material written in a light, informal style, which relates the gossip columnist's opinions about the personal lives or conduct of celebrities from show business (motion picture movie stars, theater, and television actors), politicians, professional sports stars, and other wealthy people or public figures. Some gossip columnists broadcast segments on radioand television. The columns mix factual material on arrests, divorces, marriages and pregnancies, obtained from official records, with more speculative gossip stories, rumors, and innuendo about romantic relationships, affairs, and purported personal problems. Gossip columnists have a reciprocal relationship with the celebrities whose private lives are splashed about in the gossip column's pages. While gossip columnists sometimes engage in (borderline) defamatory conduct, spreading innuendo about alleged immoral or illegal conduct that can injure celebrities' reputations, they also are an important part of the "Star System" publicity machine that turns movie actors and musicians into celebrities and superstars that are the objects of the public's obsessive attention and interest. The publicity agents of celebrities often provide or "leak" information or rumors to gossip columnists to publicize the celebrity or their projects, or to counteract "bad press" that has recently surfaced about their conduct."

"In Hollywood's "golden age" in the 1930s and 1940s, gossip columnists were courted by the movie studios, so that the studios could use gossip columns as a powerful publicity tool. During this period, the major film studios had "stables" of contractually obligated actors, and the studios controlled nearly all aspects of the lives of their movie stars. From the 1930s through the 1950s, the two best-known - and competing - Hollywood gossip columnists were Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons."

Roman Polanski sexual abuse case - Wikipedia

"In November 2016, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly wrote in her book about the details of her sexual abuse allegations against Ailes. According to Kelly, when she first joined Fox News, Ailes would have meetings with her, during which he would make sexual remarks. He also tried to kiss her several times during a closed-door meeting, but she was able to get away and leave the office. After that incident in 2006, Kelly says that Ailes did not sexually harass her again. Then, in 2016, when Gretchen Carlson first made her sexual abuse allegations, Fox pressured Kelly to defend Ailes, which she refused to do."

"Journeys with George is a documentary by Alexandra Pelosi and Aaron Lubarsky that follows George W. Bush for more than a year on his campaign trail in the United States presidential election, 2000. Working for NBC and as part of what she calls the "travelling press corps," Pelosi offers the only behind-the-scenes look at Bush's campaign. With light journalism, she achieves considerable access to the then-Governor of Texas.The film focuses on the relationship between the press and presidential candidates, the life of a traveling journalist in such a relationship, and Bush, usually in a humorous light, with less attention given to the issues. It earned six Emmy nominations including one win for Lubarsky's editing. It scored 48 out of 100 on Metacritic. In April 2007, it was shown on MSNBC. The last two seasons of The West Wing, which follow the presidential campaigns of Matt Santos and Arnold Vinick, were inspired in part by scenes in Journeys."

In 2001, Sheila Nevins convinced Pelosi to leave network news to work exclusively for HBO. During the 2004 Democratic primaries, Pelosi returned to the campaign trail, this time following the Democratic candidates.

Hanging Disbelief: Getting Hung Up or Getting Hanged...

"Most of us know suspension of disbelief just as the term implies – you suspend your disbelief for the sake of the storytelling. Wikipedia defines the suspension of disbelief as a tacit agreement between the audience and the creator, for the audience to suspend judgment in exchange for entertainment. An agreement, I like that! It’s as if the audience is shaking hands with the creator. “I won’t give you a hard time about your creation, as long as it’s fun.” Of course, every agreement has conditions and suspension of disbelief is no different; “inconsistencies or plot holes that violate the initial premisees, established canon, continuity, or common sense, are often viewed as breaking this agreement.”

"Wow, breach of contract clause? Sounds almost like a legal agreement, doesn’t it? 

"But here’s the catch, and after you’ve thought about it I hope you and I can agree. Every story has plot holes! Every story has violation of the premise upon which the story is founded! Every story has continuity errors, violations of common sense, and things which might break the agreement to suspend disbelief. So then why do some movies get away with fantastically unrealistic plots and character motivations, while some more down to earth movies are criticized for their shortcomings? Analyzing a few of the memorable movies in this category, you may start to see a pattern..."

"When a narrator says, “Let me tell you a story,” there is the off chance that the character could be lying! Even if the character is not so dramatic as to lie, they could be misinformed, or biased in some way in how they tell the story. This can be used to great effect in the form of a plot twist. When it is not an actual narrator, it can be a character in the story who is missing crucial information, and that information is surprising and dramatic when it is revealed to the audience, as in The Sixth Sense. In TV shows, where one among many dramatic threads can spread across several seasons, the information the characters have is incomplete on a smaller scale but ‘turned out’ in more regular doses. In a show like 24 or Battlestar Galactica, characters you thought had good intentions turn out to be lying, cheating, stealing, in league with the villains, or simply living in their own skewed interpretation of reality. There is one more secret to suspension of disbelief that we’re going to tell you. For some writers it may not seem as important a tool as the others, but small doses of it here and there go a long way towards endearing your entertainment franchise in the hearts and minds of your fans.  Every good storyverse has its share of fictional culture, parodies, and satire. Consider The Itchy & Scratchy Show from The Simpsons. Or Scientology-like cults in shows like The 4400, or separatist terrorists in Battlestar Galactica. The real world is filled with interesting niches of human society. What are yours? They can be parodies, but they don’t have to be. They can be genuine, straight-faced commentary on the nature of human relationships or the politics of our world."

"Casuality simulation" also turns out to be corpses specially made for police departments and forensic units. Something a real-life Dexter might learn on in training."

"Dapper Cadaver is where the prop masters of your favorite movies and TV shows shop. Sure you could make your own corpses from scratch, but when there's a shop that offers medically realistic dead bodies, not just of humans, but of all creatures great..."

"Law and Order is a frequent shopper, as were Breaking Bad and Dexter. Think Game of Thrones' top shelf gore is too classy to be store-bought? Think again. The severed heads of many GOT characters were ordered here, then their faces were composited on in post.  The place does booming business around Halloween, when the cheesier plastic skulls and zombie costumes go like hotcakes. But on an average weekday, like the day I visited, the vibe is of a place just doing business as usual, stacking up torsos and severed limbs on the floor to complete a large order, and adding the requisite blood and guts to a modified corpse. "Casuality simulation" also turns out to be corpses specially made for police departments and forensic units. Something a real-life Dexter might learn on in training."

Trust Us...

These trusted sources of our ideas tend to only reinforce the mainstream or accepted alternative mainstream narratives. These opinion and behavior leaders are useful shepherds who act to ensure the mass audience is properly misdirected away from examining or even considering the existence of continuity errors in official narratives. Only officially accepted conspiracy theorizing allowed. Bigfoot, UFO and Elvis sightings and all sorts of other more polarizing narratives and stories are the officially allowed gossip; anything else is usually forbidden in some manner, and also usually mocked. Only officially acceptable ideas are supposed to be propagating among the mass international public.

Consider why most people believe in absurd ideas like the Moon landings, and of course why most buy into the official 9-11 narrative, which is fantastic and cartoonish, physically impossible and absurd. The power these pied piper thought and behavior leaders have is truly impressive. These shepherds reinforce faith in even the most fantastic narratives.

"celebrity (n.) late 14c., "solemn rite or ceremony," from Old French celebrité "celebration" or directly from Latin celibritatem (nominative celebritas) "multitude, fame," from celeber"frequented, populous" (see celebrate). Meaning "condition of being famous" is from c. 1600; that of "a famous person" is from 1849."

Shall common sense be sacrificed?

"The term suspension of disbelief or willing suspension of disbelief has been defined as a willingness to suspend one's critical faculties and believe something surreal; sacrifice of realism and logic for the sake of enjoyment. The term was coined in 1817 by the poet and aesthetic philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who suggested that if a writer could infuse a "human interest and a semblance of truth" into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgement concerning the implausibility of the narrative. Suspension of disbelief often applies to fictional works of the action, comedy, fantasy, and horror genres."

"Cognitive estrangement in fiction involves using a person's ignorance to promote suspension of disbelief."

"The phrase "suspension of disbelief" came to be used more loosely in the later 20th century, often used to imply that the burden was on the reader, rather than the writer, to achieve it. This might be used to refer to the willingness of the audience to overlook the limitations of a medium, so that these do not interfere with the acceptance of those premises. These premises may also lend to the engagement of the mind and perhaps proposition of thoughts, ideas, art and theories. Suspension of disbelief is often an essential element for a magic act or a circus sideshow act. For example, an audience is not expected to actually believe that a woman is cut in half or transforms into a gorilla in order to enjoy the performance."

"According to the theory, suspension of disbelief is an essential ingredient for any kind of storytelling."

"With any film, the viewer has to ignore the reality that they are viewing a staged performance and temporarily accept it as their reality in order to be entertained. Black-and-white films provide an obvious early example that audiences are willing to suspend disbelief, no matter how unplausible the images appear, for the sake of entertainment. With the exception of totally color blind people (achromats), no person viewing these films sees the real world without color, but some are still willing to suspend disbelief and accept the images in order to be entertained. Suspension of disbelief is also supposed to be essential for the enjoyment of many films and television shows involving complex stunts, special effects, and seemingly unrealistic plots and characterizations."

"How to confront liars using the "Columbo Method""

By Steven Gaffney

"Have you ever had the feeling someone was lying to you? Or not being entirely truthful?"

"Worse yet, have you found yourself afraid to confront that person for fear of negative repercussions?"

"The Columbo Method is a simple and ingenious way to handle this potentially precarious problem. Remember the television show Columbo, starring Peter Falk? The fictional Columbo was a detective who solved murder mysteries. He was a humble and unassuming character who had the ability to get anyone to tell him anything, despite their initial resistance."

"When someone said something to Columbo that was conflicting or inconsistent, he would rub his head and say, “I noticed yesterday you said one thing, and now you are saying something else. I’m confused.” He would say things like, “Could you clarify this?” or “Help me understand.” Columbo did not accuse those he was questioning."

"By taking the responsibility for his confusion, he disarmed the other person — who then would slowly feel comfortable telling him the things he needed to know to solve the crime. The Columbo Method is to present the facts that appear to conflict, give the person the benefit of the doubt, and then ask questions for clarification. In a business situation, Columbo might say, “I noticed you said you wanted the report right away, but I haven’t heard from you since I gave you the report. Is everything okay?” Or, “Is there something else I can provide you with?” By choosing not to blame or accuse the other person, we reduce the likelihood that they will be defensive or resistant and in turn increase the probability that they will reveal what is truly going on. Like a mystery, remember that things are not always as they appear. What may appear to be a lie may not be."

"Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed."

"The Clinton machine is at the center of this power structure. We've seen this first hand in the WikiLeaks documents, in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors." 

"So true. Honestly, she should be locked up. Should be locked up."

"And likewise the e-mails show that the Clinton machine is so closely and irrevocably tied to the media organizations that she, that she — listen to this — is given the questions and answers in advance of her debate performance with Bernie Sanders."

"This election will determine whether we are a free nation or whether we have only the illusion of democracy, but are in fact controlled by a small handful of global special interests rigging the system, and our system is rigged."

"This is reality, you know it, they know it, I know it, and pretty much the whole world knows it. The establishment and their media enablers will control over this nation through means that are very well known. Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed. They will attack you, they will slander you, they will seek to destroy your career and your family, they will seek to destroy everything about you, including your reputation. They will lie, lie, lie, and then again they will do worse than that, they will do whatever is necessary. The Clintons are criminals, remember that. They're criminals."

In various media interviews, Broaddrick stated that Clinton raped her and that Hillary Clinton knew about it, and tried to threaten Broaddrick into remaining silent. She said that she started giving some interviews in 2015 because Hillary Clinton's statement that victims of sexual assault should be believed angered her. From early on in the campaign Jones supported the eventual Republican nominee."

"Then in October 2016, an Access Hollywood recording of Clinton's opponent, Donald Trump, having a lewd conversation in which he jokes about groping women was released during the campaign, and he attempted to deflect the issue by citing Clinton's accusers. The three women reiterated their allegations against Bill Clinton in a press conference before the second presidential debate and said that Hillary had enabled him. In reference to the Access Hollywood recording, Willey pronounced herself an outright supporter of Hillary's opponent, Broaddrick said that the actions of the Clintons were worse than the words of the opponent, and Jones said the focus should remain on Bill Clinton."

"Subsequently, at least fifteen women publicly accused Hillary's opponent of sexually assaulting or harassing them. Asked whether such accusations changed her view of the accused candidate, Broaddrick said, "I don't have an educated answer for that because I've not read about these women. If these accounts are true, yeah. If any possibility of these accounts being true, then I express my sympathies to the women that, you know, anything might have happened to.""

#METOO Meets "The Weinstein Effect":

"By late 2017, the issue and Clinton's standing within the Democratic Party were being reconsidered. This was prompted as a result of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations, which quickly triggered the Weinstein effect and the #MeToo phenomenon, with as a consequence liberals and feminists reconsidering their lack of support for the alleging women at the time. Michelle Goldberg wrote that Broaddrick's allegations meant that "Bill Clinton no longer has a place in decent society." Sitting U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who had succeeded Hillary Clinton in the Senate, went so far as to say Clinton should have resigned the presidency over his misconduct. A HuffPost/YouGov survey found that 53 percent of people who voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election believed that the accusations against Bill Clinton were credible, while 83 percent of Trump voters found the accusations credible. When asked in 2018 whether he would have approached the sexual misconduct allegations differently in the wake of the #MeToo movement (which shed light on the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace), Clinton said that he would not.  Asked if he owed Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern whom he had sexual relations with, a personal apology, he said that he did not."

More about Gen Flowers, actress:

"Flowers published her memoir Gennifer Flowers: Passion and Betrayal in 1995. In it, she stated she had experienced a sexual naïveté at the time of her alleged relationship with Clinton. After acting in an Australian film in 1987, she played in another independent Australian film in 1992 and in the same year guest starred in the adult-themed television comedy Dream On. She then played herself in Play It to the Bone and various TV shows. In 1998 Flowers participated in Wrestlemania XIV, interviewing The Rock in a backstage segment."

"Until Hurricane Katrina, she ran a cabaret called the Kelsto Club in a former bordello in New Orleans' French Quarter. Flowers made her New York theatre debut in 2004, briefly as a replacement in the Off-Broadway hit Boobs! The Musical. As of 2007, she lived in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she occasionally wrote a column.During this time, she was broadly supportive of the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, saying that she wanted to "support my own gender". Flowers also denied that she had "any interest whatsoever in getting back out there and bashing Hillary Clinton." In 2008, she put what she said were the answering machine tapes of her conversations with Clinton up for auction. In November 2012, Flowers stated that Clinton contacted her as recently as 2005. During an interview with Susan Roesgen, Flowers told Roesgen that during her prior sojourn in New Orleans, President Clinton telephoned Flowers while visiting the city and asked for a meeting, which Flowers declined. In 2016, Flowers tweeted her support for the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, and was scheduled to attend a televised debate between him and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, whom Flowers had supported in 2007. However, the campaign for Donald Trump cancelled the invitation after his initial offer."

"Flowers came forward during Bill Clinton's 1992 Presidential election campaign, stating that she had a 12-year relationship with him."

"After Clinton denied having a relationship with Flowers on 60 Minutes, she held a press conference in which she played tape recordings she had secretly made of phone calls with Clinton. Clinton subsequently apologized publicly to Mario Cuomo for remarks he made about the then-Governor of New York on the tapes. During the press conference, Flowers was famously asked several questions by "Stuttering John" Melendez of the Howard Stern Show if she was planning to sleep with any other candidates before the election, along with if Clinton used a condom and if there ever was a threesome. She responded by laughing at Stuttering John's prank whereas her advisor wanted to ignore him by trying to answer other questions. News reports at the time speculated that the taped phone conversations between Flowers and Clinton could have been doctored; Flowers had sold the original tapes to Star and they were never lab-tested. Clinton aides James Carville and George Stephanopoulos backed this claim as well. Stephanopoulos later claimed in a 2000 interview with journalist Tim Russert that "Oh, it was absolutely his voice, but they were selectively edited in a way to – to create some – some impression.""

Propaganda programming will not work without a medium and without actors and yellow journal, soap opera narratives.

It also won't work without that most needed black propaganda ingredient, the most trusted News source and/or most trusted political pundit and/or talk show host.

Propaganda pied piper narrative shepherds are a necessary part of the cast. They are as important as the celebrity actors and political figures they endlessly gossip about.

Scripted and contrived government building social engineering needs celebrity idol stars to spend lifetimes (if need be) acting out their roles on the literal world stage.

Such iconic shepherding, pied piper, idols include, high level celebrity journalists, high level celebrity political pundits, high level celebrity dictators, talk show hosts, terrorist and cult leaders and the like, high level celebrity entertainers, official religious leaders and sports figures, high level celebrity "scientists" and scholars, as well as authors of all types of fiction and "non fiction"; such iconic shepherding staff includes idols like celebrity alternative conspiracy theory talk show hosts and the like.

"Black propaganda is false information and material that purports to be from a source on one side of a conflict, but is actually from the opposing side. It is typically used to vilify, embarrass, or misrepresent the enemy. Black propaganda contrasts with grey propaganda, the source of which is not identified, and white propaganda, in which the real source is declared and usually more accurate information is given, albeit slanted, distorted and omissive. Black propaganda is covert in nature in that its aims, identity, significance, and sources are hidden. The major characteristic of black propaganda is that the people are not aware that someone is influencing them, and do not feel that they are being pushed in a certain direction. Black propaganda purports to emanate from a source other than the true source. This type of propaganda is associated with covert psychological operations. Sometimes the source is concealed or credited to a false authority and spreads lies, fabrications, and deceptions. Black propaganda is the "big lie", including all types of creative deceit. Black propaganda relies on the willingness of the receiver to accept the credibility of the source. If the creators or senders of the black propaganda message do not adequately understand their intended audience, the message may be misunderstood, seem suspicious, or fail altogether. Governments conduct black propaganda for reasons that include: A) by disguising their direct involvement a government may be more likely to succeed in convincing an otherwise unbelieving target audience,"

FLASHBACK September 11th 2001:

"On September 11, 2001, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) was involved in an ongoing operation which involved deploying fighter aircraft to northwestern North America. The U.S. Military and NORAD had also planned to conduct several military exercises and a drill was being held by the National Reconnaissance Office, a Department of Defense agency. The operations, exercises and drills were all canceled following the September 11 attacks."

"Operation Northern Vigilance, was a NORAD operation which involved deploying fighter aircraft to locations in Alaska and Northern Canada. In order to simulate a hijacking situation including terrorist pilots."

"On September 12, 2001, there was due to take place the second part of an exercise known as Operation Tripod, set up to "test the plan to distribute antibiotics to the entire city population during a bioterrorism attack". Richard Sheirer, director of the New York CityMayor's Office of Emergency Management (NYC OEM), had hired "over 1,000 Police Academy cadets and Fire Department trainees to play terrified civilians afflicted with various medical conditions, allergies, and panic attacks."

"Various individuals were invited to watch, including Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, the police and fire commissioners, and representatives of the FBI and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)."

"Pier 92 was set up as a model distribution station where the "victims" of the mock attack who needed to receive antibiotics would be treated.[13] The exercise was a follow-up to a previous training exercise in New York, called RED Ex, which took place on May 21, 2001. According to the MTI Report Saving City Lifelines: Lessons Learned in the 9-11 Terrorist Attacks, "September 11 was going to be a busy day at the OEM. Staff members arrived early to prepare for Operation Tripod." When the September 11, 2001, attacks began, Operation Tripod was immediately canceled as attentions turned to the real ongoing emergency. Because Pier 92 had been set up ready for the exercise, NYC OEM staff were able to move there and quickly convert it into a large emergency operations center when their original command center (in WTC Building 7) was evacuated and later destroyed. Thus, within 31 hours of the attacks, NYC OEM had a functional facility able to manage the search and rescue effort, just four miles north-northwest of the WTC site. The exercise was later rescheduled and took place on May 22, 2002."

A Young Turk defined: "young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations".

"The Young Turks was originally developed as a radio talk show that was similar in format to a Los Angeles-based public access television program that Cenk Uygur had hosted, titled The Young Turk. With the help of friend Ben Mankiewicz (with whom he had previously worked), his childhood friend Dave Koller, and Jill Pike, Uygur began The Young Turks as a radio program in February 2002 on Sirius Satellite Radio.[8] On the show's website, the title is explained as deriving from the English-language phrase "Young Turk", meaning a "progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party" or a "young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations". In 2006, the program received attention for its 99-hour "Live on Air Filibuster," conducted during Congressional hearings for the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. Hosts including Thom Hartmann and John Amato filled in during the event, to allow the show's regular hosts and contributors to rest or take breaks. Prior to signing a distribution deal to carry the program on Air America in 2006, the show was broadcast on Sirius Satellite Radio, on Sirius Left 143 and later 146, airing weekdays from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Eastern Time; a day-behind rebroadcast of the program aired on Sirius Talk Central 148 weekday afternoons from 12:00 to 2:00 pm. Eastern. Being carried exclusively on Sirius for several years, The Young Turks was the first show to air exclusively on Sirius Left that was not distributed through a syndication network.[citation needed] TYT was also carried by KFH (1330 AM and 98.7 FM, now KNSS (AM) and KNSS-FM) in Wichita, Kansas each weeknight from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Central Time and webcast by RadioPower.org."

NY TIMES: "In Trump’s Volleys, Echoes of Alex Jones’s Conspiracy Theories"

"Way back on Friday, President Trump declared that several news organizations — ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, The New York Times — were “the enemy of the American people.” You know who’s not the enemy, in his book? Alex Jones. Mr. Jones, in case you aren’t aware, is the conspiracy-theorizing, flame-throwing nationalistic radio and internet star who’s best known for suggesting that Sept. 11 was an inside job, that the Sandy Hook school shooting was “completely fake” and that the phony Clinton child-sex trafficking scandal known as Pizzagate warranted serious investigation(which one Facebook fan took upon himself to do, armed with an AR-15)."

"Mr. Jones, 43, has been around for a while. Like every media outfit in the Trump era, his platforms have gotten record traffic and, he told me last week, seen increases in revenue, with ads for water purification systems and for supplements to enhance “brain force” and virility. But he is apparently taking on a new role as occasional information source and validator for the president of the United States, with whom, Mr. Jones says, he sometimes speaks on the phone."

"The actor added that Barr needs to “get off Twitter.” "

"Actor Tom Arnold is mincing no words when it comes to his ex-wife Roseanne Barr and the inflammatory tweet that resulted in the cancellation last week of her eponymous ABC sitcom. Barr is “obviously” a racist, Arnold said in an interview with “Good Morning Britain” on Monday, adding the actress really “needs to get off Twitter.” “You’ve got to get her phone away from her,” he said."

"Arnold told CNN last week that he believes mental health issues had played a “part” in the recent controversy involving Barr, who has spoken publicly in the past about her struggles with dissociative identity disorder, formerly known as multiple personality disorder. Arnold discussed this topic again with the British talk show. “She had the multiple personality disorder, she was honest and courageous about that,” he said of Barr. “I don’t know exactly what’s going on. I know there is mental illness issues.”

“I base that on the last six months of her tweeting and social media,” he continued, pointing out her support of President Donald Trump, whom Arnold described as also a “racist,” and her touting of conspiracy theories about Democrats."

Famous Roseanne "Controversies"

"On July 25, 1990, Barr performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" off-key before a baseball game between the San Diego Padres and Cincinnati Reds at Jack Murphy Stadium. As she later claimed, she was initially having trouble hearing herself over the public-address system, so she was singing as loudly as possible, and her rendition of the song sounded "screechy". Following her rendition, she mimicked the often-seen actions of players by spitting and grabbing her crotch as if adjusting a protective cup. Barr claimed she had been encouraged by baseball officials to "bring humor to the song". The song and the closing routine received heavy media attention and offended many, including President George H. W. Bush, who called her rendition "disgraceful". Barr revisited this incident during her Comedy Central Roast in 2012, wherein she once again belted out the last few bars of the national anthem, without screeching."

"Barr elicited criticism in July 2009 when she posed as Adolf Hitler in a feature for the satirical Jewish publication Heebmagazine, called "That Oven Feelin'".The Nazi theme was reportedly her suggestion, and featured her with a Hitler mustache and swastika arm-band, holding a tray of burnt gingerbread man cookies the article referred to as "burnt Jew cookies". The magazine's publisher, Josh Neuman, said the photos were taken for satire and was not done for shock value, while Barr, herself Jewish, defended by saying she was "making fun of Hitler, not his victims". Fox News TV host Bill O'Reilly was highly critical of her for "mocking the Holocaust" and Extra's Mario Lopez stated "Come on, Roseanne. Hitler jokes are never funny." The revival of her show in March 2018 caused the photos to resurface on social media and renewed mentions of the incident in the Jewish magazine The Forward and the Los Angeles Times, among others."

"In 2014, the parents of George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch coordinator who is known for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin but was later acquitted of second degree murder and manslaughter, filed a lawsuit against Barr for tweeting their home address and phone number on March 29, 2012. Barr tweeted "At first I thought it was good to let ppl know that no one can hide anymore ... If Zimmerman isn't arrested I'll rt his address again – maybe go 2 his house myself."[66] Zimmerman's parents allege that Barr sought to "cause a lynch mob to descend" on their home. The Seminole County Circuit Court complaint sought more than $15,000 for emotional distress and invasion of privacy.  In August 2015, summary judgmentwas granted in favor of Barr."

"In late March 2018, Barr tweeted about a conspiracy theory involving David Hogg, a survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida. The conspiracy theory falsely claims Hogg gave a Nazi salute at a March for Our Lives rally on March 24. Barr later deleted her tweet."

"On May 29, 2018, Barr posted a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a Senior Advisor to former U.S. President Barack Obama. It read "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj".[71] Barr was initially defensive, and tweeted "ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties. Islam includes EVERY RACE of people". She later deleted the tweet and posted an apology, stating she was "truly sorry for making a bad joke about [Jarrett's] politics and her looks".[55] She later explained that she made the Jarrett tweet, which she called wrong and indefensible, at 2:00 am while on Ambien, a sedative. Sanofi, which manufactures Ambien, responded by tweeting, "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication." Later that day, ABC canceled Roseanne in response to the tweet. The show and content relating to it was removed from the ABC website. ABC president Channing Dungey said Barr's remark was "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values"."

"On September 19, she appeared at the Occupy Wall Street protests and spoke in support of the protestors. "She stated any "guilty" Wall Street bankers should be forced to give up any income over $100 million, and if they are unable to live on that, be sent to re-education camps, and if that doesn't help be beheaded""

"Tom Arnold Teams Up With Vice to Hunt for the Missing Trump Tapes"

"He first tweeted about rumored tapes of Trump using the N-word on the set of The Apprentice four days before the election. He later claimed to be in possession of the tapes, though the title and conceit of his new show would suggest otherwise."

"One of the many drawbacks of Donald Trump’s rise to power has been the renewed relevance granted to figures who, like himself, were better off left in the 20th century. Just in the past month, he’s hired Rudy Giuliani, publicly praised Roseanne, and tweeted about phone calls with Sylvester Stallone. It’s not just his supporters either. The comedian Tom Arnold has landed a TV show with Vice thanks to Trump. Unlike his ex-wife’s rebooted sitcom, though, Arnold’s show is unlikely to draw Trump’s praise. On The Hunt for the Trump Tapes With Tom Arnold, the star of The Stupids will attempt to track down a treasure trove of lost tapes casting Trump in an unflattering light, Vice says. The host will draw on his high-profile network of celebrity friends, entertainment executives, and crew members he’s met over more than 35 years in showbiz to dig for evidence on Trump’s most incriminating moments — and, being a comedian and all, he’ll have a little fun along the way. He’ll be backed up by a handful of experienced journalists, and — aside from trying to uncover the tapes themselves — he’ll look into the companies and tycoons who have allegedly fought to keep the damning recordings a secret. Why Tom Arnold? Because he’s been making noise about these tapes for years. He first tweeted about rumored tapes of Trump using the N-word on the set of The Apprentice four days before the election. He later claimed to be in possession of the tapes, though the title and conceit of his new show would suggest otherwise. In later tweets Arnold mentioned a “Russian sex tape,” Trump’s “version of the Ray Rice elevator tape,” a video of Trump and Jared Kushner’s dad with “super young Russians in FLA,” a “Miss Teen USA Backstage Tape,” and a “Backstage Miss Universe Tape.” What will he find other than a newfound ability to book stand-up shows at places called Yuk Yuk’s? We get to find out later this year."

2017: UFO Conspiracy Theory Promoted By Maintream Media and Ex Presidents and even Hillary Clinton...

"Former President Bush Won’t Tell Jimmy Kimmel ‘Nuthin’ About UFOs"

"In fact, Bush doesn’t even claim that there are no hidden UFO files."

"In 2014, President Bill Clinton told Kimmel that when he was the leader of the free world, he tried unsuccessfully to investigate what the government was hiding regarding UFOs. When Kimmel asked if he would have told the public had he found evidence of real aliens, Clinton smiled and said “Yeah.”:

"Then, in 2015, during a visit to Kimmel’s talk show, President Barack Obama ― in tongue-in-cheek fashion ― said “the aliens won’t let [disclosure] happen. You’d reveal all their secrets, and they exercise strict control over us. I can’t reveal anything.”

"During Hillary Clinton’s 2016 bid for the White House, she made several comments throughout the year about her intent ― should she be elected president ― to make government UFO files available to the public."

The Use of the Antisemitism Card is obvious.

The idea is to get us to divide and conquer and fight among ourselves, literally or figuratively. The evil jewish banker stereotype is an old propaganda artifact and convenient scapegoat. Blame the jewish guy for your troubles and ignore the fact that we are all in this together and all tied to the same inhuman system. We all serve the same proverbial beast system represented by Pharaoh. We all need the proverbial Moses to come and lead us all out of our very real wage slave status, we all share. We are all slaves, IE we are all Jews in this context. We are all of the same tribe and that tribe is humanity. Humanity transcends skin color, features, so-called genetic background, nation state and more local based ego centric identifies,  and all the rest. Humanity even transcends natural gender in this context. In the context of natural freedom, God given freedom, if you will, in this context all are equal. It is the system of artifice that has led many of us to incorrectly believe otherwise. Institutionalized religious faith and nation state identities are both tools the few have always used to manage the many by means of industrialized relics of one kind or another, secular or otherwise.

“Stuxnet, the attacks on the Ukrainian power grid, and autonomous armed guards are only the beginning. Computers are changing warfare profoundly because military strategy has always been geographically based but there are no borders in cyberspace. We shall investigate the implications for the future of international conflict and of national defence.”

Defector Relocation Program:

"Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.) yesterday asked the House intelligence committee to hold a hearing on the CIA's defector resettlement program and consider revising a vague provision in federal law to spell out defectors' legal rights."

"Wolf also asked the committee to determine how many people have defected from China since the mid-1970s and whether the CIA has a program focused on resettling Chinese defectors. "I am concerned that the problems that have faced defectors from the former Soviet Union might affect recruitment efforts and a possible defector program concerning China," Wolf wrote."

"The "vague" provision in federal law to which Wolf referred is part of the original 1947 national security law that created the CIA."

"It says the CIA director can bring as many as 100 defectors and their family members into the country per year, but it says nothing about what benefits they are to receive."

source: Defector Program Reform Urged - The Washington Post

"In a year of harsh publicity about the Central Intelligence Agency's handling of defectors, Belenko is something of a success story -- not necessarily because of anything the CIA did institutionally as part of its relocation program for Soviet defectors, but thanks to a personal network in this federal city and its far-reaching national security bureaucracy. I first encountered another example of such a network a few months ago when I met Alexandra Costa, the only woman to have defected from the Soviet Embassy in Washington. She is the "lady in the blond wig" who decided to emerge from eight years of anonymity last November to decry the CIA's handling of Vitaly S. Yurchenko, the KGB colonel who bolted the Soviet apparatus in Rome, but who, after spending three months in the hands of what he described as a rather unpleasant CIA debriefing team, returned to the Soviet Union. (Whether Yurchenko was a genuine defector or a plant is still a matter of debate inside the "intelligence community.")"

"An opposing force (abbreviated OPFOR or enemy force) is a military unit tasked with representing an enemy, usually for training purposes in war game scenarios. The related concept of aggressor squadron is used by some air forces. The United States maintains the Fort Irwin National Training Center with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment serving in the main OPFOR role. Other major units include the First United States Army which consists of 16 training brigades that often also serve as OPFOR. Fort Polk's Joint Readiness Training Center is another major training site typically reserved for units that are slated to deploy into conflict areas. At a basic level, a unit might serve as an opposing force for a single scenario, differing from its 'opponents' only in the objectives it is given. However, major armies commonly maintain specialized groups trained to accurately emulate real-life enemies, to provide a more realistic experience for their training opponents. (To avoid the diplomatic ramifications of naming a real nation as a likely enemy, training scenarios often use fictionalized versions with different names but similar military characteristics to the expected real-world foes.)"

"WASHINGTON — Hackers claiming to be working on behalf of the Sunni militant group known as the Islamic State took over the Twitter and YouTube accounts of the United States Central Command on Monday, sending out a series of posts far different from the American military’s standard fare. “In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the CyberCaliphate continues its CyberJihad,” one post on Twitter said. “American soldiers, we are coming, watch your back,” said another. The Defense Department scrambled against the attack. By early Monday afternoon, Central Command had taken down its Twitter account and suspended its YouTube feed. A defense official said that no classified material had been breached and that the military was taking steps to address the matter. The F.B.I. was also investigating. Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, said the government was monitoring the extent of the hacking. He played down any comparisons between the hacking of Sony Pictures and the one of Central Command. “There’s a pretty significant difference between what is a large data breach and the hacking of a Twitter account,” Mr. Earnest said."

"GIVEN THAT ISIS and other terrorist organizations have proven adept at using social media to disseminate propaganda and incite fear, it seems obvious that platforms like Facebook and Twitter would aggressively and mercilessly delete such content and ban those who post it. It may seem equally obvious that those companies would move quickly to do just that when presidential candidates appear to call for them to help out and as US Representative Joe Barton asks the Federal Communications Commission, "Isn't there something we can do under existing law to shut those Internet sites down?" But it's not that simple, and social media platforms have grappled with the issue in some ways since at least the days when Al Qaeda affiliates started uploading videos to YouTube. The problem lies in the global nature of social media, the reliance upon self-policing by users to identify objectionable content, and the fact that many of those banned simply open a new account and continue posting their hatred. A blanket policy of banning anything that might be seen as inciting violence also could lead to questions of censorship, because one person's hateful propaganda could be another's free speech. That's not to say companies like Facebook and Twitter aren't taking this seriously and trying to draw a distinction between the two. But it's not as simple as you might think."

"In optics and photography, infinity focus is the state where a lens or other optical system forms an image of an object an infinite distance away. This corresponds to the point of focus for parallel rays. The image is formed at the focal point of the lens. In a simple, two lens system such as a refractor telescope, the object at infinity forms an image at the focal point of the objective lens, which is subsequently magnified by the eyepiece. The magnification is equal to the focal length of the objective lens divided by the focal length of the eyepiece. In practice, not all photographic lenses are capable of achieving infinity focus by design. A lens used with an adapter for close-up focusing, for example, may not be able to focus to infinity. Failure of the human eye to achieve infinity focus is diagnosed as myopia. All optics are subject to manufacturing tolerances; even with perfect manufacture, optical trains experience thermal expansion. Focus mechanisms must accommodate part variations; even custom-built systems may have some means of adjustment. For example, telescopes such as the Mars Orbiter Camera, which are nominally set to infinity, have thermal controls. Deviations from its operating temperature are actively compensated to prevent shifts of focus."

"Aerial perspective or atmospheric perspective refers to the effect the atmosphere has on the appearance of an object as it is viewed from a distance. As the distance between an object and a viewer increases, the contrast between the object and its background decreases, and the contrast of any markings or details within the object also decreases. The colours of the object also become less saturated and shift towards the background colour, which is usually blue, but under some conditions may be some other colour (for example, at sunrise or sunset distant colours may shift towards red)."

"

"Lens Focus: Set your lens to manual focus (either through a switch on the lens or on the camera) and set your focus to infinity. Be careful while setting the focus to infinity, as some lenses allow focusing beyond infinity. On more advanced DSLRs such as Nikon D300, there is a handy feature called “live-view with contrast detect”, which can accurately acquire focus on distant objects. I have used it many times for my moon photography and it works great! If you do not have such a feature in your camera, then try setting your lens to the center of the infinity sign, then take a picture and see if it came out sharp by zooming in the rear LCD of the camera."

"1) Why does the moon look smaller in pictures?"

"Before we start talking about how to take a picture of the moon, let’s first answer some basic questions. I’m sure if you have already attempted to take a picture of the moon, you probably ran into a problem where the moon looks tiny in comparison to what you saw while taking the picture. Why does the moon get photographed so much smaller? The simple answer is – you are probably taking a picture of the moon with a wide-angle lens. Keep in mind that your eyes are like a 50mm fixed lens and if you are taking a picture with a wide-angle lens that is shorter than 50mm, the moon will be captured in smaller size! So, if you want to capture an object like a big tree or a house with the moon, you would need to stand further away and photograph the scene at least at 50mm to try to match what you saw with your eyes. And even at 50mm the moon might look smaller, especially if it was near the horizon when you took a picture of it. This also happens because of a phenomenon called “Moon Illusion“, where the moon appears bigger to your eyes, when in fact it is not."

"2) Why do I see the moon as a white blob?"

If you have taken a picture of the moon after sunset and it looked in the picture like a white circular object rather than the moon, it is because the moon was overexposed. When you take a picture of the moon with other objects around it (as in the example with a tree above), your camera by default will meter, or calculate the exposure, based on everything but the moon. This happens because the moon is too small in comparison with the objects around it and a single spot of light should not affect the overall exposure of the picture. Think of it as a light bulb – if you take a picture of a dimly lit room with a visible light bulb, the room will be exposed normally, while the light bulb will be overexposed. If the camera measured exposure on the light bulb, the room would be completely dark, while the light bulb is properly exposed. The same thing happens with the moon – it works just like the light bulb at night and it will always be overexposed. During the day, however, this is not a problem, because the amount of light coming from the moon would differ only slightly in comparison with the objects around it, including the sky. So, why do our eyes see everything normally, while a digital camera cannot? That’s because our eyes and our brain can see a much broader range of light. In photography terms, this is known as “dynamic range“."

"3) Where and when to photograph the moon"

"Obviously, you should be taking a picture of the moon on a clear night with no clouds in the sky. Even a thin layer of clouds will make it impossible to get a clear picture of the moon, so absolutely make sure that the sky is clear. Pollution in large cities, especially in hot summer days will also play a big role, so I recommend getting out of town and traveling to a remote location with no light or air pollution, preferably at a higher elevation. The less the distance between you and the moon, the better the pictures. In terms of when to photograph the moon, take a look at this US Navy Moon Phases page, where you can find out what phase the moon is currently in and you can also calculate what it will be by picking the date from the bottom of the page. As for the time of the day – any time works, as long as the moon is visible."

"4) Required equipment – Camera and Lens"

"A DSLR camera with a 200mm+ telephoto lens or a point and shoot camera that has an optical zoom capability. A stable tripod. Remote camera trigger (optional). If you do not have one, a timer in your camera will also work."

"If you want to enlarge the moon and show the details of the moon surface, a good telephoto lens longer than 200mm is almost required. The longer the lens, the better. If you have a telephoto lens that can take teleconverters, I highly recommend adding a teleconverter to increase the overall focal length. For example, a 1.4x teleconverter will increase the focal length of a 300mm lens by 40% or to 420mm total, while a 2.0x teleconverter will increase the focal length of the same lens to 600mm. The only thing to keep in mind, is that teleconverters negatively impact image quality and decrease the maximum aperture of the lens, so if you had a 300mm f/4 lens, it would essentially become a 420mm f/5.6 lens (which is not that big of a deal, because you will be using higher apertures for moon photography anyway). As the focal length is increased, camera shake can also become a big problem. At long focal lengths of 300mm and above, even a slight move can screw up the picture. That’s why if you are using a telephoto lens, a stable tripod is required to be able to produce a sharp image of the moon. Having a remote camera trigger also helps reduce the camera shake and if you have a Mirror Lock Up (MLU) feature in your camera, you can almost completely eliminate all vibrations."

"The best setup for moon photography is an astro-telescope with a camera mount. Basically, you mount a digital camera to a telescope, which works as a long telephoto lens. But those setups can get very expensive and are suited best for dedicated astrophotography."

"5) How to photograph just the moon"

"To photograph just the moon by itself, without any objects in the foreground, you will need a long telephoto lens like explained above to magnify the moon and try to fill as much of the frame as possible. Even with a good telephoto lens setup though, you will most likely be cropping the final image, simply because only a telescope would be able to provide enough magnification to fill the entire frame. With your telephoto lens mounted in your camera, secure it on a tripod and point at the moon. Make sure that your tripod is good and stable enough to accommodate and hold your lens and your camera. When it comes to shutter speed, apertureand ISO, here is what I recommend for general use:"

(The Moon is so bright it can seen during the day; we cannot say the ams for the ISS.)

"The space station is visible because it reflects the light of the Sun – the same reason we can see the Moon. However, unlike the Moon, the space station isn’t bright enough to see during the day. It can only be seen when it is dawn or dusk at your location. As such, it can range from one sighting opportunity a month to several a week, since it has to be both dark where you are, and the space station has to happen to be going overhead."

"The space station looks like an airplane or a very bright star moving across the sky, except it doesn’t have flashing lights or change direction. It will also be moving considerably faster than a typical airplane (airplanes generally fly at about 600 miles (965 km) per hour; the space station flies at 17,500 miles (28,000 km) per hour)."

"What causes the moon to shine?"

"Answer: The moon does not shine by its own light, but by the reflected light of the sun. We see the moon because the sun is shining on it. The surface of the moon is actually very rocky and fairly dark (about the color of the asphalt on most of our city roads). But because it is so close to the earth, it provides enough light at night to cast shadows when it is full or nearly full."

Modern Cosmology

Modern "Science" means propaganda fantasy (backed by only fallacious thought experiment and equally nonsensical math) becomes "Discovery". It also means that problematic endeavors like the Cavendish Experiment, are taken seriously.

Both Newton and Einstein were wrong. Their theories are nonsense. The so-called "evidence" and peer reviewed "proofs" are misdirection and not demonstrable evidence. There is good reason why it is called theoretical physics. The use of the word "physics" is misleading. Cartoon reasoning is not physics. Mathematical equations can be used to model and communicate imaginative lies and mistakes in logic, as easily as verbal sentences can.

Misdirection is not science. It is propaganda.

The trick is to focus our attention on the model and imaginative thought experiment, and not the natural phenomena.

Newton and Einstein represent constructed idols and secular saints we are conditioned to look up to as examples of human "genius". We are not supposed to criticize or even actually critically inspect the peer reviewed and so-called "settled" scientific assumptions that lie at the foundation of modern cosmology.

Narrative matters more than demonstrable science.

More to come about this subject soon.


Post Script: Military Virtual Reality

Military grade, modern role playing games. All tax fund. All examples of modern duck and cover, fear based, propaganda.

Fear based social engineering with the purpose of reinforcing the belief in the need for tax hungry governmental protection we do not actually need.

One exampe of many:

"DHS to release an active shooter training simulator for teachers It puts them in a virtual shooting incident to prepare them for a real one."

"Last June, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a virtual training program for first responders aimed at preparing them for an active shooter incident. Now, there's a program specifically for teachers. "With teachers, they did not self-select into a role where they expect to have bullets flying near them. Unfortunately, it's becoming a reality," Tamara Griffith, one of the chief engineers of the program, told Gizmodo. "And so we want to give them that chance to understand what options are available to them and what might work well for them."

"The platform, called Enhanced Dynamic Geo-Social Environment, or EDGE, was developed by DHS and the US Army and was built on Epic Games' Unreal engine. For this particular program, the developers listened to audio taken from the Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook shootings in order to make the simulations as accurate as possible. They also spoke to a mother of one of the Sandy Hook victims, according to the Associated Press, and she gave them details about what happened throughout that day."

In the training program, participants can play the role of teacher, shooter or officer and the program can take into account different safety measures that a particular school might have. For instance, intercom systems or automatic locks can be worked into the simulation. While working through the virtual shooting incident, participants are given tips on effective practices such as locking doors and constructing barricades. "The more experience you have, the better your chances of survival are," said Griffith. "So this allows you to practice and have multiple experiences [and] know what works and what doesn't work.""
