A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Then a mighty strange thing happened.  Guess you could call it fate. You see, a gust of wind blew the picture frame down and it landed on the muckety-muck's head And the mice they all went crazy. For the first time they saw the lie.

It was all a hoax on just simple folks. And the muckety-muck must die. And die he did. The members of his staff they just fled. They were scared. Hah. Just not prepared." - Song: The Proper Gander. Songwriter: Bobby Darin

"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

Food For Thought:



The Collective History of The World As We Know is One Where The Narrative is "Gender Fluid".

What was true in 1920, might to be true  in 2020. It is as if there were a literal collection of Vatican like Time Lord Bankers who could travel back into the past to erase the bits of history they didn't need any longer, like scraping barnacles off the side of a submarine. Or maybe it is like Neil deGrasse and Bow Tie Science Guy waving a Disney Mouseketeer Wand to send us all off to any of the Infinite number of Earths in the Universe of Washington DC. One day students sitting in a classroom some centuries from now might learn about how Elon Musk invented the internet and the iPhone on his return flight from the NASA shopping mall on the Moon.

Revising The Revised

In any case, the work of the personas that were offered to the public is worth looking into. Ideas matter and not biographical detail. This article begins with a list of biographies to provide some context. You are all free to obviously think and make of it all what you will. The work that these men represent and the ideas these men discuss are important. Ignorance of our prior history (even if just to look for contradictions) is how we remain in a collective state of an insane ignorant unconsciously uncomfortable 'bliss'. 

Who is of elite or Royal stature and who is not?

"Joseph John Thomson was born 18 December 1856 in Cheetham Hill, Manchester, Lancashire, England. His mother, Emma Swindells, came from a local textile family. His father, Joseph James Thomson, ran an antiquarian bookshop founded by a great-grandfather. He had a brother two years younger than he was, Frederick Vernon Thomson.[6] J. J. Thomson was a devout Anglican.[7][8][9]

His early education was in small private schools where he demonstrated outstanding talent and interest in science. In 1870 he was admitted to Owens College at the unusually young age of 14. His parents planned to enroll him as an apprentice engineer to Sharp-Stewart & Co, a locomotive manufacturer, but these plans were cut short when his father died in 1873.[6]

He moved on to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1876. In 1880 he obtained his BA in mathematics (Second Wrangler in the Tripos[10] and 2nd Smith's Prize).[11] He applied for and became a Fellow of Trinity College in 1881.[12] Thomson received his MA (with Adams Prize) in 1883.[11]

Thomson was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society[1] on 12 June 1884 and served as President of the Royal Society from 1915 to 1920.

On 22 December 1884 Thomson was chosen to become Cavendish Professor of Physics at the University of Cambridge.[3] The appointment caused considerable surprise, given that candidates such as Richard Glazebrook were older and more experienced in laboratory work. Thomson was known for his work as a mathematician, where he was recognized as an exceptional talent.[13]

In 1890, Thomson married Rose Elisabeth Paget, daughter of Sir George Edward Paget, KCB, a physician and then Regius Professor of Physic at Cambridge at the church of St. Mary the Less. They had one son, George Paget Thomson, and one daughter, Joan Paget Thomson.

He was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1906, "in recognition of the great merits of his theoretical and experimental investigations on the conduction of electricity by gases." He was knighted in 1908 and appointed to the Order of Merit in 1912. In 1914 he gave the Romanes Lecture in Oxford on "The atomic theory". In 1918 he became Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, where he remained until his death. Joseph John Thomson died on 30 August 1940; his ashes rest in Westminster Abbey, near the graves of Sir Isaac Newton and his former student, Ernest Rutherford.[14]

One of Thomson's greatest contributions to modern science was in his role as a highly gifted teacher. One of his students was Ernest Rutherford, who later succeeded him as Cavendish Professor of Physics. In addition to Thomson himself, eight of his research assistants (Francis William Aston, Charles Glover Barkla, Niels Bohr, Max Born, William Henry Bragg, Owen Willans Richardson, Ernest Rutherford, Charles Thomson Rees Wilson) and his son won Nobel Prizes in physics or chemistry. His son won the Nobel Prize in 1937 for proving the wave-like properties of electrons"

"Marconi was born into the Italian nobility as Guglielmo Giovanni Maria Marconi[8] in Bologna on 25 April 1874, the second son of Giuseppe Marconi (an Italian aristocratic landowner from Porretta Terme) and his Irish/Scots wife Annie Jameson (daughter of Andrew Jameson of Daphne Castle in County Wexford, Ireland and granddaughter of John Jameson, founder of whiskey distillers Jameson & Sons[9]). Between the ages of two and six, Marconi and his elder brother Alfonso were brought up by his mother in the English town of Bedford.[10][11] After returning to Italy, and at the age of 18 University of Bologna physicist Augusto Righi, neighbour of Marconi who had done research on Heinrich Hertz's work, permitted Marconi to attend lectures at the university and use the lab and library as well.[12] Marconi received further education in Florence at the Istituto Cavallero and, later, in Livorno.[13][not in citation given] Marconi did not do well in school, according to Robert McHenry,[14] though historian Giuliano Corradi characterizes him in his biography as a true genius.[15] He was baptized as a Catholic but had been brought up as a member of the Anglican Church, being married into it (although this marriage was later annulled). Marconi was confirmed in the Catholic faith and became a devout member of the Church before his marriage to Maria Christina in 1927."

"Heinrich Rudolf Hertz was born in 1857 in Hamburg, then a sovereign state of the German Confederation, into a prosperous and cultured Hanseatic family. His father Gustav Ferdinand Hertz (originally named David Gustav Hertz) (1827–1914) was a barrister and later a senator.[2] His mother was Anna Elisabeth Pfefferkorn.

Hertz's paternal grandfather, Heinrich David Hertz (originally named Hertz Hertz) (1797–1862), was a businessman, and his paternal grandmother, Bertha "Betty" Oppenheim, was the daughter of the banker Salomon Oppenheim, Jr.from Cologne.

Hertz's paternal great-grandfather, David Wolff Hertz (1757–1822), fourth son of Benjamin Wolff Hertz, moved to Hamburg in 1793, where he made his living as a jeweller; he and his wife Schöne Hertz (1760–1834) were buried in the former Jewish cemetery in Ottensen. Their first son, Wolff Hertz (1790–1859), was chairman of the Jewish community.

Heinrich Rudolf Hertz's father and paternal grandparents had converted from Judaism to Christianity[3][4] in 1834.[5] His mother's family was a Lutheran[6] pastor's family."


"William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin, OM, GCVO, PC, FRS, FRSE (/ˈkɛlvɪn/; 26 June 1824 – 17 December 1907) was a Scots-Irish[1][2] mathematical physicist and engineer who was born in Belfast in 1824. At the University of Glasgow he did important work in the mathematical analysis of electricity and formulation of the first and second laws of thermodynamics, and did much to unify the emerging discipline of physics in its modern form. He worked closely with mathematics professor Hugh Blackburn in his work. He also had a career as an electric telegraph engineer and inventor, which propelled him into the public eye and ensured his wealth, fame and honour. For his work on the transatlantic telegraph project he was knighted in 1866 by Queen Victoria, becoming Sir William Thomson. He had extensive maritime interests and was most noted for his work on the mariner's compass, which had previously been limited in reliability."

"He was ennobled in 1892 in recognition of his achievements in thermodynamics, and of his opposition to Irish Home Rule,[3][4][5] becoming Baron Kelvin, of Largs in the County of Ayr. He was the first British scientist to be elevated to the House of Lords. The title refers to the River Kelvin, which flows close by his laboratory at the University of Glasgow. His home was the imposing red sandstone mansion Netherhall, in Largs. Despite offers of elevated posts from several world-renowned universities Lord Kelvin refused to leave Glasgow, remaining Professor of Natural Philosophy for over 50 years, until his eventual retirement from that post. The Hunterian Museum at the University of Glasgow has a permanent exhibition on the work of Lord Kelvin including many of his original papers, instruments and other artifacts such as his smoking pipe.

Always active in industrial research and development, he was recruited around 1899 by George Eastman to serve as vice-chairman of the board of the British company Kodak Limited, affiliated with Eastman Kodak."

"William Thomson's father, James Thomson, was a teacher of mathematics and engineering at Royal Belfast Academical Institution and the son of a farmer. James Thomson married Margaret Gardner in 1817 and, of their children, four boys and two girls survived infancy. Margaret Thomson died in 1830 when William was six years old.[7]

William and his elder brother James were tutored at home by their father while the younger boys were tutored by their elder sisters. James was intended to benefit from the major share of his father's encouragement, affection and financial support and was prepared for a career in engineering.

In 1832, his father was appointed professor of mathematics at Glasgow and the family moved there in October 1833. The Thomson children were introduced to a broader cosmopolitan experience than their father's rural upbringing, spending mid-1839 in London and the boys were tutored in French in Paris. Mid-1840 was spent in Germany and the Netherlands. Language study was given a high priority.

His sister, Anna Thomson, was the mother of James Thomson Bottomley FRSE (1845-1926)."

"Tesla was born on 10 July [O.S. 28 June] 1856 into a Serb family in the village of Smiljan, Austrian Empire (modern-day Croatia). His father, Milutin Tesla (1819–1879),  was an Orthodox priest. Tesla's mother, Đuka Tesla (née Mandić; 1822–1892), whose father was also an Orthodox priest, had a talent for making home craft tools and mechanical appliances and the ability to memorize Serbian epic poems. Đuka had never received a formal education. Tesla credited his eidetic memory and creative abilities to his mother's genetics and influence. Tesla's progenitors were from western Serbia, near Montenegro.

Tesla was the fourth of five children. He had an older brother, Dane, and three sisters, Milka, Angelina and Marica. Dane was killed in a horse-riding accident when Tesla was aged five. In 1861 Tesla attended primary school in Smiljan, where he studied German, arithmetic, and religion.  In 1862 the Tesla family moved to Gospić, Austrian Empire, where Tesla's father worked as parish priest. Nikola completed primary school, followed by middle school.

In 1870 Tesla moved to Karlovac to attend school at the Higher Real Gymnasium. The classes were held in German, as it was a school within the Austro-Hungarian Military Frontier.

Tesla would later write that he became interested in demonstrations of electricity by his physics professor. Tesla noted that these demonstrations of this "mysterious phenomena" made him want "to know more of this wonderful force". Tesla was able to perform integral calculus in his head, which prompted his teachers to believe that he was cheating. He finished a four-year term in three years, graduating in 1873."

The "Company" Morale of History is the same exact lesson, is it not?

morale - Online Etymology Dictionary

Hope none of this depresses any unit morale. Or War Simulation turn out.

There is an obvious appeal to sympathy contained within the Nikola Tesla narrative that is hard to overlook. His story ends with him nearly homeless. Or so we are told. That'a all we can go by.

Aether Or Imagined Electrons?

I don't think everything that Nikola Tesla puts forth is correct. There is a lot of mythology around Tesla that we cannot verify. I think the man himself was at least part showman, but not a good enough one. I do think he failed at his venture. Even if he was a connected person and more of an Elon Musk than an actual engineer, (which might be the case) the work he oversaw seemed to have failed. He was specifically trying to use the Earth as the wire to send power. The power was to be generated at water falls and by other traditional means. The Free Energy stuff is part of the myth, not that there is nothing at all to the idea, but this has to do with atmospheric electricity, Whatever the deal was with Mr. Tesla, the ideas he talked about are what are important and relevant, and not the details of his supposed biography.

Ideas matter not things we cannot verify, We can examine ideas  and with the internet we can do supporting research. We can self educate and form our own individual opinions. We do not need to agree. But it helps if we all familiar with the subject matter in question, if we desire to discuss it in any logical fashion. There happens to be plenty of articles and patents attributed to Nikola Tesla that we can examine and research. There's plenty of information out there and there is the man's autobiography. One really needs to be exposed to that information in a meaningful way, before forming any kind of opinion.

In the 1890's Nikola Tesla, (think Steve Jobs) Showed Off What Would (basically) Become The Vacuum Tube Technology of the 20th Century:

Check out Page 229 & Keep In Mind:

Whether You Think Nikola Tesla a Front Man Like Steve Jobs or You Think He Is More of The Real Deal:

Steve Jobs did demonstrate very real technology as we all can experience for ourselves, and are doing so right now. In the same manner the work of the person we know as Nikola Tesla is as, if not more, relevant to the 21st Century. The lectures reproduced in the book linked below, from the late 1890's, give us a glimpse of "Things To Come" in terms of future vacuum tube technology, among many other things. 

Back during this period radio was done by way of spark gap transmission. The work and patents credited to Nikola Tesla are very integral to the digital and electronic work of today. People like JJ. Thomson and the rest are the equivalent of Elon Musk, compared to Nikola Tesla's Steve Jobs, if you get my mythic metaphor. Elon's Space X might be fake, but the electric car company he fronts is real, if you are a rich person, you can get your hands on one of these toys. The funny thing with Musk's Tesla car company is that there is no "Microsoft Windows" to Musk's "Apple". Usually the right vs left sort of marketing paradigm is the one we end up barraged with. After all we have the GOP vs The Democrats, Coke vs Pepsi and an endless array of wars and sports to look to.

The thing about the Tesla electric car is this, the patent is public domain, and is basically Nikola Tesla's (polyphase A/C) old patent Further the major companies have the means, motive and opportunity to easily mass produce more electric cars then the boutique Elon Musk runs ever could dream of. The powers that be seem to use Tesla cars for Global Warming propaganda purposes more so than for promoting real product. Or so it seems to me.

A Reimagined History of Satellite Technology

"The ionosphere is a region of the upper atmosphere, from about 80 km to 1000 km in altitude, where neutral air is ionized by solar photons and cosmic rays. When high frequency signals enter the ionosphere obliquely, they are back-scattered from the ionized layer as scatter waves.  If the midlayer ionization is strong enough compared to the signal frequency, a scatter wave can exit the bottom of the layer earthwards as if reflected from a mirror. Earth's surface (ground or water) then diffusely reflects the incoming wave back towards the ionosphere. Consequently, like a rock "skipping" across water, the signal may effectively "bounce" or "skip" between the earth and ionosphere two or more times (multihop propagation). Since at shallow incidence losses remain quite small, signals of only a few watts can sometimes be received many thousands of miles away as a result. This is what enables shortwave broadcasts to travel all over the world."

"Amateur radio operators are credited with the discovery of skywave propagation on the shortwave bands. Early long-distance services used surface wave propagation at very low frequencies, which are attenuated along the path. Longer distances and higher frequencies using this method meant more signal attenuation. This, and the difficulties of generating and detecting higher frequencies, made discovery of shortwave propagation difficult for commercial services."

"Radio amateurs conducted the first successful transatlantic tests in December 1921, operating in the 200 meter mediumwave band (1500 kHz)—the shortest wavelength then available to amateurs. In 1922 hundreds of North American amateurs were heard in Europe at 200 meters and at least 30 North American amateurs heard amateur signals from Europe."

The first two-way communications between North American and Hawaiian amateurs began in 1922 at 200 meters. Although operation on wavelengths shorter than 200 meters was technically illegal (but tolerated as the authorities mistakenly believed at first that such frequencies were useless for commercial or military use), amateurs began to experiment with those wavelengths using newly available vacuum tubes shortly after World War I."





The way real technology works is that it takes something like 40 years to begin to develop it into something that can really change the world as we understand it. This is another reason why the Atom bomb and NASA space programs are highly suspect to begin with. The Atom Bomb development takes place in the blink of an eye compared to the centuries long development of electrical engineering and radio communications. Mass airline based transportation and all the rest took a couple of World Wars and time, (from the early 1900's to the middle of the 20th century) to get set up in any kind of really demonstrable way. Nikola Tesla (and others) presented the basis for this technology as far back as the late 1800's. Perspective and scale matters.

Exposing Bell Labs & NASA Lies: No Satellites Needed To Use The Ionosphere to Bounce Radio Waves:


The "Skywave" proves we do not need satellites.

A hundred years ago amateurs were bouncing shortwave radio signals around the globe. 

We also have to ignore things like the inverse square law and the radio background noise that would make picking up signals from the distant geostationary orbit impossible. Geostationary orbit is some 22,000+ miles distance, some 22 times the distance the balloons were supposed to have traveled.  Why bother when we know that short wave radio experimenters had been capable of this feat for decades? Why didn't NASA or Bell mention this in the television show the public saw? Are we in an alternate Universe or did someone travel back to the past to change this future? I kid of course. Clearly the Echo Satellite program was really part of the Cold War terror campaign, The Disney promoted rocketry and all the rest were simply part of the Hollywood crafted Cold War Propaganda Hoax.

Bell Labs was doing the research that led to the world of today.

"By 1924 many additional specially licensed amateurs were routinely making transoceanic contacts at distances of 6000 miles (~9600 km) and more."


"On 21 September several amateurs in California completed two way contacts with an amateur in New Zealand. On 19 October amateurs in New Zealand and England completed a 90-minute two-way contact nearly halfway around the world. On October 10, the Third National Radio Conference made three shortwave bands available to U.S. amateurs[7] at 80 meters (3.75 MHz), 40 meters (7 MHz) and 20 meters (14 MHz). These were allocated worldwide, while the 10-meter band (28 MHz) was created by the Washington International Radiotelegraph Conference[8] on 25 November 1927. The 15-meter band (21 MHz) was opened to amateurs in the United States on 1 May 1952."

Project Echo was a Hoax.

NASA and Bell Labs claim that they sent a balloon up some one thousand miles into outer space and further into the vacuum than the International Space Station is supposed to be (at some 249 miles).  The Echo satellites was a mylar balloon with a skin thinner than a human hair. Obviously a balloon will pop when exposed to such an incredibly immense vacuum, but NASA and Bell Labs could simulate anything.

"Project Echo was the first passive communications satellite experiment. Each of the two American spacecraft, launched in 1960 and 1964, was a metalized balloon satellite acting as a passive reflector of microwave signals. Communication signals were bounced off them from one point on Earth to another."

"The 30.5-metre (100 ft) diameter balloon was made of 0.5-mil-thick (12.7 µm) metalized 0.2-micrometre-thick (0.00787-mil) biaxially oriented PET film ("Mylar") material, and it was used to redirect transcontinental and intercontinental telephone, radio, and television signals."

Project Echo - Wikipedia

"BoPET film was developed in the mid-1950s, originally by DuPont, Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) and Hoechst. In 1964, NASA launched Echo II (the second mission of Project Echo). It was a 40 m (131 ft) diameter balloon constructed from "a 0.35mil (9µm) thick mylar film sandwiched between two layers of 0.18 mil (4.5µm) thick aluminum foil and bonded together."

MYLAR: BoPET - Wikipedia


Bell Labs Simulates "Space Travel"

"Space Travel is an early video game developed by Ken Thompson in 1969 that simulates travel in the solar system. The player flies their ship around a two-dimensional scale model of the solar system with no objectives other than to attempt to land on various planets and moons. The player can move and turn the ship, and adjust the overall speed by adjusting the scale of the simulation. The ship is affected by the single strongest gravitational pull of the astronomical bodies.

The game was developed at Bell Labs before the rise of the commercial video game industry in the early history of video games, and was ported during 1969 from the Multics operating system to the GECOS operating system on the GE 635 computer, and then to the PDP-7 computer. As a part of porting the game to the PDP-7, Thompson developed his own operating system, which later formed the core of the Unix operating system. Space Travel never spread beyond Bell Labs or had an effect on future games, leaving its primary legacy as part of the original push for the development of Unix."
