Mainstream Mockingbirds


SNL Weekend Update Summer Edition Episode #2

This is the real Project Mockingbird

Episode #1 was broadcast on August 11, 20017, one day before the much publicized Charlottesville Protest was scheduled to take place. What a lucky coincidence. Nothing like cliched and stereotype based humor. Saturday Night Live has been on the air for decades; SNL had Trump host the show back in 2015, and of course, SNL is not some radical rebellious anti-government group,. This is a mainstream media propaganda product. Late Night Talk show style humor simply reinforces the reality of the News headlines of the day. Stand up comedians get confused with wise political leaders. So-called political leaders are nothing but stand up comedians. This is how America gets  generationally dumbed down.  The educational system is usually blamed for dumbing down America but the truth is the News and related media and government are responsible.

Was Robert E. Lee A Racist?

Perhaps not. Or perhaps he really was. Why care? Do we really need idols and icons and celebrities of all sorts to follow?

"Robert E. Lee, on the other hand, is a more complicated case. He was no great friend of slavery. He wrote in a letter to his wife that “slavery as an institution, is a moral political evil in any Country” (he added, shamefully, that it was good for blacks — “the painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race”).

After the war, he accepted defeat and did his part to promote national healing.

Yet, faced with a momentous choice at the start of the war, he decided he was a Virginia patriot rather than an American nationalist. He told one of President Abraham Lincoln’s advisers, “I look upon secession as anarchy. If I owned the 4 million slaves in the South I would sacrifice them all to the Union; but how can I draw my sword upon Virginia, my native state?”

He betrayed the US government and fought on the side devoted to preserving chattel slavery."

Television is a powerful medium. It is the medium of government. Without it, government as we know it would not exist.

It shapes the collective consciousness and mass unconscious minds.

Television, specifically the News and related media, are the real weapons of mass destruction, these are the true terrorists. Trusted News journalists and late night cultural critics paint false landscapes onto the collective human mind. These people are employed as social shepherds. There is no better way to put it. These people earn a living appealing to the lowest common denominator. Trusted comedian critics are just as much a part of the show as the politicians and News folk are. Whether these performers are conscious of their propaganda slinging or not makes no difference to the system.

World War Two Changed It All

The modern News journalist is considered by most to be more reliable than the Pope or any rabbi. The modern News journalist is trusted more than the blessed politician people line up to vote for. The News caster is supposed to be neutral and unbiased and this might be true; but the News journalist is also supposed to be interested in the truth like Sherlock Holmes, or Lois Lane and Superman are. Yet the way the News works, as an industry, makes such behavior impossible. However honest or not, a news journalist is, or is not, the system itself will not allow unfiltered and unprocessed News from reaching the masses. A real revolution would never be televised and any real meme gone viral would not be mentioned. Only that which fits the bigger picture is allowed to go on air and gain exposure. Real events that fit the description would make for fine AP or Reuters News feed. Can't find a real event? There are ways to fix that problem.

Here's how you know the News is not on your side but is part of the governmental noise machine side show that is meant to keep you believing you need government. News stories that have become historical events like 9-11 and Moon landings and  all the rest, are easily shown to be problematic at best. This demonstrable fact is of no interest to the News media, is it? If they report on questions of official narrative it usually is to discredit such claims as insane.

After all the News media itself, is the source of obvious staged grieving family interviews complete with coached widows. The duping delight and all the crying with no tears in sight, are sure signs that there is something very wrong with what we are seeing. These interviews are not about facts and are all about the emotional appeal to the victim of tragedy. Human beings are creatures with sympathetic neurology that highly emotional interviews are meant to trigger. Yet the smiles and giggles and winks and tearless nods seem to be huge clues something is very wrong. Most don't notice the vacuous questions that trusted journalist priest ask of their trusted emotional witnesses.

Most also do not seem to notice a trail of tearless television News interviews that goes back in time towards World War Two.

Most don't notice too, the same news headlines being repeated and reimagined for decades.

World War One Was A Test Run For Things To Come

World War One was a Hollywood bonded experience. The public seems to have gone mad with patriotic fervor and were easily shepherded by celebrity bond salesman and women. This was in the days before commercial radio, this was a time period when the film theaters were the cutting edge of silent era moving picture technology. World War One was an old media, yellow journal News war. Sure, there were some Newsreel footage and a famous British documentary, which comes across as little more than staged fictional propaganda, but for the most part this war was an old medium one, using print and word of mouth hearsay to spread the tales of war.

World War Two would be a new media war complete with radio and talking moving pictures that were shown in darkened cathedral like theaters. The modern world of television and video games and global passenger jet travel was yet to be born. The modern world of global bottling plants and celebrity pop tours was just on military drawing board back before Pearl Harbor. Some say fallaciously, that "9-11 changed everything!" The Truth is December 7, 1941, another seemingly contrived and scripted event, really did provide impetus for actual verifiable change.

Now military style multimedia is alive 24/7 on global social platform.

Operation Mockingbird

"Operation Mockingbird was allegedly a large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that began in the early 1950s and attempted to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes. It funded student and cultural organizations and magazines as front organizations.

According to writer Deborah Davis, Mockingbird recruited leading American journalists into a propaganda network and oversaw the operations of front groups. CIA support of front groups was exposed after a 1967 Ramparts magazine article reported that the National Student Association received funding from the CIA. In the 1970s Congressional investigations and reports also revealed Agency connections with journalists and civic groups. None of these reports, however, mentions an Operation Mockingbird controlling or supporting these activities.

A Project Mockingbird is mentioned in the CIA Family Jewels report, compiled in the mid-70s. According to the declassified version of the report released in 2007, Project Mockingbird involved wire-tapping of two American journalists for several months in the early 1960s."

"The stories disseminated from Rockefeller Center would then be legitimately picked up by other radio stations and newspapers, before being relayed to the American public. "

"British Security Co-ordination (BSC) was a covert organisation set up in New York City by the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) in May 1940 upon the authorisation of Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Its purpose was to investigate enemy activities, prevent sabotage against British interests in the Americas, and mobilise pro-British opinion in the Americas. As a 'huge secret agency of nationwide news manipulation and black propaganda', the BSC influenced news coverage in the Herald Tribune, the New York Post, The Baltimore Sun, and Radio New York Worldwide. The stories disseminated from Rockefeller Center would then be legitimately picked up by other radio stations and newspapers, before being relayed to the American public.  Through this, anti-German stories were placed in major American media outlets to turn public opinion. 

Its cover was the British Passport Control Office. BSC benefitted from support given by the chief of the US Office of Strategic Services, William J. Donovan (whose organisation was modelled on British activities), and US President Franklin D. Roosevelt who was staunchly anti-Nazi."

Divided & Falling

"America Divided is a broad study of the “movements and issues that arose soon after the end of World War II and were partially resolved by the time Richard Nixon resigned from the presidency.”(ix) The authors seek to weave together the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam, the Great Society, the New Left, the rise of a counter culture, and the conservative revival. None of these topics are covered in great depth or with remarkable insight. However, the book does provide a significant amount of information and helps with background for any further study of the time period."

The CIA Coined Tin Foil Hat Terms

The CIA is all about cultural creation, manipulating and minting human minds.

Conspiracies are tabloid fare promoted by mainstream media sources. Truth movements and all other sorts of organized protest marches tend to be controlled affairs that seem intent on limiting the discussion and controlling the narrative in one way or another. New false choices can replace old. All these social shepherds seem to do is to mix some truth with doses of tabloid speculation.

We do not need to resort to tabloid style conspiracy theorizing to explain that physically impossible feats are not real. We also do not need to resort to tin foil costuming to notice all the documented cases of Hollywood film fakery sold to the public as real images of war. I've posted links to mainstream news stories over and over and will post yet another here again.

DC = Damage Control and The CIA has a lot of fake event based reality to cover for.

From NASA's obvious stage illusionist and Hollywood effects work, along with plenty of war film fakery to go through and the Zapruder live action cartoon composite fakery, to impossible feats of 9-11 physics, history is made of more lies than most realize. Youtube and the internet must be a real pain in the ass in some ways. As much as the internet and social media are great tools to use to hypnotize the mass mind into further believing in fantastic narratives, this same hyperlinked tool can be used to self educate and to reveal historical and current governmental lie. The problem is most of us seem to really enjoying buying into lies and do not seem very interested in really self educating, preferring to listen to podcasts and the ideas of other minds, as entertainment instead.

"The CIA Coined the Term Conspiracy Theorist In 1967 • That all changed in the 1960s. Specifically, in April 1967, the CIA wrote a dispatch which coined the term “conspiracy theories” … and recommended methods for discrediting such theories.  The dispatch was marked “psych” –  short for “psychological operations” or disinformation –  and “CS” for the CIA’s “Clandestine Services” unit."

Do you really need a political team to identify with and to root for?

All the team building news media promoted noise is meant to divide and conquer us into arguing and even fighting factions. We are supposed to watch rainbow colored Platonic shadows on screens and go along with what seems to be a very childish global narrative, complete with saturday morning cartoon inspired weaponry. This noise is also meant to keep us busy with distraction while real laws are passed. Trump is signing real bills with real fine print into real binding law. His agenda is the same agenda that the federal government has been carrying out since 1776. It's all about expanding Washington D.C. control over America. If the 1776 revolt were not just some kind of elitist controlled opposition and management team shake up, the rebels would have gotten rid of all the state governors and the county seats. Local control with limited logical government makes sense. Some greater forms of national and even international bureaucracy would seem to be logical, but that is a far cry from the global banker based system of international feudal governance sold to us as forms of "freedom". Nation states are fake, Puppet prime ministers and presidents work for higher authority and not for "We the people" which is just an empty campaign promise from 1776. International bankers and their governmental progeny have always worked for European Royalty. Who do you think really owns the land and the mines? The Spanish and British Empires are hydra heads of one Holy Roaming Enterprise that never fell. The Royal Houses of these two fabulous Nations still reign and retain more power than most know. There's still plenty of old world nobility around, in one form or another.


Your Minerals Belong To The Queen

"The Mines are Mine!" said the Queen.

"Thousands of people have been sent letters from the Duchy of Lancaster reminding them that the Queen has rights to minerals beneath their homes.  The move follows similar letters sent by the Duchy of Cornwall last month to people telling them that it has the right to dig for gold under their properties, and requesting them to alter their deeds to reflect this."

This Land is Not Your Land

"In virtually all countries around the world, the owner of the surface land – be it a house or farmland – has absolutely no rights with regards to mineral ownership. Indeed, it is the central governments or monarchs who own such rights. For example, in the United Kingdom, the Queen in theory owns all the rights to extract minerals from all lands in the country, including those lands located offshore. In practice, of course, this ownership is actually governed by the central government. "

Crown Lands

"Crown land, also known as royal domain or demesne, is a territorial area belonging to the monarch, who personifies the Crown. It is the equivalent of an entailed estate and passes with the monarchy, being inseparable from it. Today, in Commonwealth realms such as Canada and Australia, crown land is considered public land and is apart from the monarch's private estate. In Britain, the hereditary revenues of Crown lands provided income for the monarch until the start of the reign of George III, when the profits from the Crown Estate were surrendered to the Parliament of Great Britain in return for a fixed civil list payment. The monarch retains the income from the Duchy of Lancaster."

"Within Canada, Crown Land is a designated territorial area belonging to the Canadian Crown.[7][8] Though the monarch owns all Crown Land in the country, it is divided in parallel with the "division" of the Crown among the federal and provincial jurisdictions, so that some lands within the provinces are administered by the relevant provincial Crown, whereas others are under the federal Crown. About 89% of Canada's land area (8,886,356 km²) is Crown Land: 41% is federal crown land and 48% is provincial crown land. The remaining 11% is privately owned.[9] Most federal Crown Land is in the territories (Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon) and is administered by Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada. Only 4% of land in the provinces is federally controlled, largely in the form of National Parks, Indian reserves, or Canadian Forces bases. In contrast, provinces hold much of their territory as provincial Crown Land, which may be held as Provincial Parks or wilderness.

Crown Land is the equivalent of an entailed estate that passes with the monarchy and cannot be alienated from it; thus, per constitutional convention, these lands cannot be unilaterally sold by the monarch, instead passing on to the next king or queen unless the sovereign is advised otherwise by the relevant ministers of the Crown. Crown Land provides the country and the provinces with the majority of their profits from natural resources, largely but not exclusively provincial, rented for logging and mineral exploration rights; revenues flow to the relevant government and may constitute a major income stream, such as in Alberta. Crown Land may also be rented by individuals wishing to build homes or cottages."

Queen In Chief

"Commander-in-Chief – The Queen is commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces and all members swear an oath of allegiance to The Queen when they join; they are Her Majesty’s Armed Forces."

"The Royal Prerogative are a set number of powers and privileges held by The Queen as part of the British constitution. Nowadays, a lot of these powers are exercised on Her Majesty’s behalf by ministers – things such as issuing or withdrawing passports that, without the Royal Prerogative, would require an act of parliament each time. Over time, the prerogative powers have been used less and less though the important thing in our Constitutional Monarchy is that they still exist, they remain a means of protecting democracy in this country ensuring that no one can simply seize power. Victorian constitutionalist Walter Bagehot defined The Queen’s rights as, the right ‘to be consulted, to encourage and to warn’ – but these rights are not the same as her powers, as we will now see. The Queen’s prerogative powers vary and fall into different categories…


The Queen’s political powers nowadays are largely ceremonial, though some are actively used by The Queen such as at General Elections or are available in times of crisis and some are used by Ministers for expediency when needed. Summoning/Proroguing Parliament – The Queen has the power to prorogue (suspend) and to summon (call back) Parliament – prorogation typically happens at the end of a parliamentary session, and the summoning occurs shortly after, when The Queen attends the State Opening of Parliament. 

Royal Assent – It is The Queen’s right and responsibility to grant assent to bills from Parliament, signing them into law. Whilst, in theory, she could decide to refuse assent, the last Monarch to do this was Queen Anne in 1708.

Secondary Legislation – The Queen can create Orders-in-Council and Letters Patent, that regulate parts to do with the Crown, such as precedence, titles. Orders in Council are often used by Ministers nowadays to bring Acts of Parliament into law.

Appoint/Remove Ministers – Her Majesty also has the power to appoint and remove Ministers of the Crown.

Appointing the Prime Minister – The Queen is responsible for appointing the Prime Minister after a general election or a resignation, in a General Election The Queen will appoint the candidate who is likely to have the most support of the House of Commons. In the event of a resignation, The Queen listens to advice on who should be appointed as their successor.

Declaration of War – The Sovereign retains the power to declare war against other nations, though in practice this is done by the Prime Minister and Parliament of the day.

Freedom From Prosecution – Under British law, The Queen is above the law and cannot be prosecuted – she is also free from civil action."

1783 Treaty of Paris: The British Crown Retained More Rights Than You Might Know

The Crown still needs to get paid and the U.S. government is contractually obliged to pay the British Royalty. Australia and Canada are British Crown controlled countries. This is not a secret. The Prime Ministers swear an oath of loyalty to the Queen of England, they work for her. They do not work for any of the voters who are basically mass media promoted side show, snake oil consuming suckers. The world is one empire and is run behind the scenes as one.

The world crisis of News media mythology exists to keep us all believing in the need for Nation states and other forms of government in the first place. All come with international banking originated strings attached. Governments exist to organize the vast global human resource into effective civilization building workforce.

An Ecliptic Epilogue: Total Solar Flashback 1963

"A total solar eclipse occurred on July 20, 1963. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is the same size as the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth's surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide. The eclipse was featured in the comic strip Peanuts (July 15–20, 1963), with Linus demonstrating a safe way of observing the eclipse as opposed to looking directly at the eclipse. On the day the eclipse passed over his area, Linus was left helplessly standing in the rain with cloud cover entirely too thick to witness the eclipse.

It also served an important function in the plots of two Stephen King novels, Gerald's Game (1992) and Dolores Claiborne (1992) and was featured in a season 3 episode of Mad Men titled "Seven Twenty Three" (2009)."

"John Updike mentioned the eclipse in his 1968 novel Couples, stating, "Only one other time [in those years] had been so ominous: the Wednesday in October of 1962 when Kennedy had faced Khrushchev over Cuba"

"This solar eclipse is a part of Saros cycle 145, repeating every 18 years, 11 days, containing 77 events. The series started with partial solar eclipse on January 4, 1639, and reached a first annular eclipse on June 6, 1891. It was a hybrid event on June 17, 1909, and total eclipses from June 29, 1927 through September 9, 2648. The series ends at member 77 as a partial eclipse on April 17, 3009. The longest eclipse will occur on June 25, 2522, with a maximum duration of totality of 7 minutes, 12 seconds."

source: Solar eclipse of July 20, 1963 - Wikipedia

"Solar saros 145 is an eclipse cycle with 77 solar eclipses repeating every 18 years, 11 days, 8 hours. It is currently a young cycle producing total eclipses less than 3 minutes in length. The longest duration eclipse in the cycle will be member 50 at 7 minutes and 12 seconds in length after which the durations of eclipses will decrease until the end of the cycle. In its central phase it will produce mainly total eclipses (41 of 43 central eclipses)."

A Lucky Number Seven Jackpot!

77 Solar Eclipses make up the 18 year 11 day Saros cycle.


"Here’s one you might not know … the intriguing relationship between supermoons and the famous 18-year Saros cycle of eclipses."

"The November 2016 supermoon. The 413-day time period between successive proxigee full moons consists of about 1 year, 1 month and 18 days. That is why the next proxigee full moon (after September 28, 2015) is coming up on November 14, 2016, to feature the closest supermoon since January 26, 1948. 

Although the September 2015 full moon was totally eclipsed by the Earth’s dark umbral shadow, the November 2016 full moon will elude the Earth’s shadow by passing to the south of it. Obviously, the cycle of lunar proxigee – and the cycle of lunar eclipses – aren’t equivalent from year to year."
