A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

The Military Does Mortuary Drills

Joint Mortuary Affairs Exercise 2017  source: U.S. Army Reserve


"Exercise Folded Flag tests USAF mortuary affairs' capabilities"

"DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. -- The Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations, in conjunction with Team Dover active duty and Reserve units, and off-base Army, Marine and Navy units, conducted Folded Flag 2017, a mass fatality exercise, April 7 to 13, 2017, here. AFMAO is the only Department of Defense mortuary in the continental U.S. Its unique and solemn mission is to fulfill the nation’s sacred commitment of ensuring dignity, honor and respect to the fallen and care, service and support to their families. The purpose of Folded Flag 2017 was to stress AFMAO’s capabilities by receiving a high number of remains over several days. “We haven’t had a mass fatality dignified transfer, luckily, in a long time,” said Col. Dawn Lancaster, AFMAO commander. “Unfortunately in our business, a mass fatality incident isn’t an ‘if,’ but a ‘when. That’s just the reality for us in the military.” On any given day, there could be an attack on a convoy in Afghanistan, a bombing at a U.S. military base overseas, or a plane crash anywhere around the world. These incidents can result with one or two dozen casualties. “We have to be able to support that and prove that we can care and provide that dignity, honor and respect, just like we receive all the ones and twos all the time, for the 20, the 30, the 40, or the 50, at the same time.”

"Capt. Brian Scallion, AFMAO dignified transfer officer in charge, was in a group who planned and organized this year’s exercise.  “The main goal was to exercise receiving a large amount of remains and stressing port mortuary on receiving those remains and then having another incident in the middle of preparing those, with more inbounds,” said Scallion. “It’s to see where our breaking point is. We have to determine at which point we need to reach outside AFMAO for assistance, whether it’s our Naval morticians, who are nearby, or working some other avenues to get support to help prepare all the remains to go back to their final destination.” "

Graves Registration Services

"Mortuary Affairs is a service within the United States Army Quartermaster Corps tasked with the retrieval, identification, transportation, and burial of deceased American and American-allied military personnel. Until 1991, it was known as the Graves Registration Service (GRS or GRREG). The Graves Registration Service was created several months after the United States entered World War I. The current Army Military Occupational Specialty for the career field is 92A (a general code for officers across the Quartermaster Corps) and 92M for enlisted personnel."

"Disaster drills are no match for chaos of reality"

Published September 12, 2001 - Post 9/11

by Marlene Cimons and Jonathan Peterson, Special to the Tribune. Marlene Cimons and Jonathan Peterson are staff writers for the Los Angeles Times, a Tribune newspaper

"Federal emergency plans cover everything from medical care to patient evacuation to mortuary care to treatment of injured animals."

"The people who work at the New York State Emergency Center in Albany report to work each day--underground, in a bunker surrounded on all sides by four feet of reinforced concrete--in preparation for a medical disaster. On Tuesday, the disaster occurred. "Right now we're trying to locate any survivors, possibly trapped in the collapses," said Hans Hallman, a spokesman for the center, adding that all of its forces in New York City had been deployed--emergency medical aid, transportation personnel, the National Guard, police, firefighters, "everyone."

The nation's health-care system prepares for such disasters with exercises that pull together federal health-care officials, their state and local counterparts, and medical providers throughout the country. Arlington County, Va., prepares for catastrophes at the Pentagon. Federal emergency plans cover everything from medical care to patient evacuation to mortuary care to treatment of injured animals. But in the chaotic aftermath of Tuesday's terrorist attacks, such carefully laid plans collided with the complications of reality."

A Funeral Director's Eternal Debt To The Military For All The Veterans

"At Horan & McConaty, we are eternally indebted to our military veterans who courageously serve our nation and protect our freedom. We honor our veterans by assisting their families with obtaining all Veteran benefits, Social Security benefits and life insurance benefits."

"Please meet Matt Garnick. Matt, himself a veteran of the United States Air Force, is a seasoned Advance Planner. He can answer questions for you regarding veterans burial benefits. Many people have misconceptions about these benefits and Matt is able to give you honest answers regarding these benefits to which our distinguished veterans are so entitled. Matt is able to meet with you in your home or at any of our seven convenient locations."

John Horan President/CEO

"My family's association with funeral service dates back to 1890, when my great-great grandparents moved to Denver from Santa Fe and opened a funeral home at the northwest corner of 15th and Platte Streets in lower downtown. Later, my great-grandfather worked diligently to build on his parents' legacy and also founded National Selected Morticians, now known as Selected Independent Funeral Homes.

In 1919, James “Gentleman Jim” McConaty established McConaty's Boulevard Mortuary at Speer and Federal Boulevards. In the 1940's, James "Jim" McConaty, Jr. joined the firm, and his brother Joseph "Joe" McConaty later joined the firm in the 1950’s. In 1956, the McConaty brothers established a second location on South Colorado Boulevard. Jim McConaty died in 1983 and his brother Joe died in 2001. Before he died, Joe McConaty sold his company to me in 1986. I was able to purchase the company thanks in part to my mom and dad, who loaned me the funds to cover most of the down payment and personally signed the notes, potentially risking their home and assets. I am eternally grateful to them for their generosity.

Since then, we have constructed five new facilities to better serve families throughout the metro area and have grown to be Colorado’s Most Preferred Family-Owned Funeral Homes and Crematories. My mother, Valerie VanDerbur Horan, grew up in East Denver and attended East High School and the University of Colorado. “Val,” as most call her, first began her funeral service career when she was a teenager, starting off as a receptionist who handled various jobs at the funeral homes. Val still assists with funeral and memorial services upon request today. My father, Jack T. Horan, died in 2010.

As part of our commitment to remain independent, Chief Operating Officer, Daren B. Forbes and Vice-President Jennifer McBride are acquiring minority interests in Horan & McConaty. At Horan & McConaty, we value our reputation and go the extra mile to help families celebrate a life lived well. We serve more Denver families than any other family-owned provider in the metro area. My staff and I are dedicated to pursuing the highest levels of service, and we greatly appreciate the trust the community has placed in us."

Social Shepherds & Crowd Control

"Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.They govern us by their qualities of natural leadership, their ability to supply needed ideas and by their key position in the social structure. Whatever attitude one chooses to take toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons—a trifling fraction of our hundred and twenty million—who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world."

Finally Some Glassy Eyes & Yet Still No Tears

Seems like the typical odd behavior of the governmentally employed crisis actor. At the very least this woman appears to have been coached by the News production team. Is this how real people would really act? Are people really so shallow as to embrace a chance at 15 minutes of televised fame? I know if I lost my spouse, the last thing I would do is a series of interviews. How many interviews do you think Mrs. Melton did instead of going home to be with her family and grieve in private like a normal person would?

Mrs. Melton seems to have had plenty of time for interviews and all that goes along with such televised appearances, when did she have time to plan her husband's funeral? I guess we are to assume either she is a great at multitasking or someone else took care of that for her. One would think she would want to be back home surrounded by her friends and family like most people would. Instead she would prefer to spend her time going from News interview to interview, seemingly cashing in on her 15 minutes of fame. I think the idea that this is how someone would normally act and behave after such a tragedy to be more disturbing than the idea that she is faking it and is just a governmentally employed propaganda actress.

Heather Melton On NBC Morning News

Glassy eyes look almost tear filled. Perhaps one day a professional will show us how it's done.

Even if we were to witness what we considered to be actual tears and perhaps drop of snot or two, we would still be quite foolish to believe what we were seeing on a screen in TV News media, edited format. Even in person a good actress can convince us we are witnessing a real emotional response. Human beings are "wired" to respond emotionally to each other's behavior and this Natural instinct for empathy has long been used against us.

Emotional interviews are designed to get us to act in kind and to leave critical thought behind.

The Victim Card: A Useful Emotional Shield

How can we criticize official narrative when we are supposed to pray for those that died? We are to show respect for the supposed dead by turning off our brains. Leave critical judgement aside and go on officially sanctioned emotional roller coaster ride.

"BIG SANDY – It didn’t take long for the crowd to grow Monday for the visitation for Sonny Melton at Big Sandy High School. The gym was already set up for Tuesday’s funeral with rows of metal folding chairs. Those rows of chairs helped bring the line fully into the building as people weaved their way among the rows. “I’m not sure what to say when we get up there,” Henry County High School assistant football coach Tony Bond said. “There’s nothing you can say; it’s a horrible situation.” Melton was one of the 59 people killed Oct. 1 in the Las Vegas shooting. He was shot in the back while getting his wife, Heather, to safety."
