The discredit by association deception.

The governments of the world benefit when we ourselves spread divisive behavior by means of promoting paranoid thinking. Government shills come in a very ordinary form, the average person. The average and unwitting media soaked person is the real weapon of mass governmental propaganda, along with the mainstream media and government, of course. The governments of the world already have plenty of such unconscious agents not only online, but in our schools, among our family members and friends, and at our work places and everywhere else. Most people think the governments of the world serve them. They buy into the false political divide which exists to reinforce faith in government authority.  They think those of us who criticize the news media crazy to begin with. Most adult human beings believe what the multimedia machine tells them when media authority instructs them that what they are seeing on screen or reading in print, is indeed "real". People are conditioned to not notice that the news media is not the proper forum for investigating any real crime or supposed terrorist event. Most adult minds accept the immediate medical recoveries and immediate celebrity-like, news and daytime talk show tours of witness-victims. Most people accept that news journalists belong at active crime scenes. They accept that we the public need to be made privy to details that would interfere with a real criminal investigation. We in the public have been conditioned our entire lives to ignore the fact that all the media coverage would not only hinder real criminal investigations, the bright media spot light exposure would make having any kind of fair trail impossible. The news media is not the investigative body its own advertising claims. The only reason they are allowed to immediately interview witnesses and to trample what should be active crimes scenes, and the only reason that explains all the high profile exposure these stories immediately get is that these news stories are all fake. The purpose of it all is to push an emotionally charged agenda that will end up growing more government. We should really only learn about these events well after they went to trial. If anything we should only have a brief police blotter like description with as little detail as possible.

Fake News is not new. High profile crimes and terrorist events are hoaxes brought to you by the tax payer.

The news media always presents an open and shut case that has the compressed timeline of a scripted hour long criminal procedural television drama. People are conditioned by the entertainment they see on the same screens as the news labeled "real".

Paranoia is tool of government.

The government only needs to put a few news stories and a couple of press releases out to stir up the conspiracy minded into a paranoid frenzy that causes "truth seekers" to squabble among themselves wondering who is a paid shill and who is simply mistaken or duped by the system. One example of this is the "Discredit By Association" memo. Many online truth seeking commentators have pointed this memo out, I have done the same in the past as well and am guilty of the same thing. The idea put forth in this memo steers many of us to a needlessly and counter productive, paranoid point of view and behavior.  None of this leads anywhere truly useful. Any critical thinking adult can see through intellectual dishonesty and the child like behavior of those who belong to the cult of government.  We need not concern ourselves with who is or who is not paid to be intellectually dishonest.  We human beings have a natural capacity to lie to even ourselves. One need not be in government employ to spread government nonsense. Most people do it without being asked or paid. Fear propagates very easily. There is a good reason why the news media employs such obvious juvenile, yellow journal, tabloid tactics. Human beings tend to follow unconscious cues. In this manner the people we see on screens can become very influential shepherds for our own personal behavior. We consciously and unconsciously emulate behavior we witness. Ideas are contagious in the same way viruses are. The news media and its master, international government, depend on the mass public acting as medium itself, for the endless streams of mind numbing propaganda we have collectively been exposed to for as long as there has been something called civilization and something called culture.

Sticks and stones can break your bones and now name calling needs to be redefined as hate speech crime.

We are not supposed to criticize high profile widowed victims who immediately take to celebrity style talk show tours like Hollywood stars selling their latest cookbook or underwear line. Those of us who dare to speak out and simply point out that grieving widows do not sit through endless hours of hair and makeup a few days after supposedly losing their heroic husband in a horrible tragic shooting incident are considered to be cyber bullying a sacred cow. Yet common sense and truly mature adult minds know better. Public figures, even ones branded victims, cannot hide behind the shield of privacy. Once they allow themselves to go on camera, and once they sign on television news contracted dotted line, to allow their image to be made public, they become equal to any other public persona we see on television screens. They cannot logically expect not to be criticized. Further, if they also have social media, available for all to see and photographs that a Google image search will reveal, they can't turn around and claim any kind of privacy rights when we post articles, podcasts and videos critical of this very public footprint  It does seem like there might just be a slow push with the cyber bullying meme, to eventually make it so we may not criticize obvious crisis actors like widow Melton and Robbie Parker and all the countless rest of the bad acting crisis cast of cartoon characters presented to the public as real people. I am not stating this to spread paranoia, quite the contrary, I think we should continue doing what we've been collectively doing.


All the evidence we can inspect reveals the startling truth that the people who concoct and manufacture all the propaganda and fake news are as human as you and I, despite what conspiracy theory minds like to speculate about, with paranoid based pride, too many self proclaimed truth seekers can't seem to recognize that the people in charge of obvious fake news are still using a 20th century playbook made for analog broadcast times and not for an era with social media, high definition television and Youtube. The bad crisis acting and obvious examples of rehearsed lines and all the other things that people think give the fakery away are more easily explained as normal human mistakes, which are bound to come about as a result of getting away with the same modus operand for about a hundred years, you get mentally lazy and pull something like 9/11/2001 on the eve of the social media and Youtube revolution. You forget that you are running plays from an old analog era playbook. You get sloppy and then people start to suspect that more and more of history is fake. And sure enough when they go check, with hyper-linked accuracy, even sacred world wars seem like nothing but scripted jest.

Any researcher who claims that the people running these scripted theatrical propaganda shows are intelligent and are watching the truther community, monitoring responses and otherwise playing with their heads are speculating about things they have no evidence for, except circularly reasoned assumption based upon continuity error and natural human mistakes.

The absolute truth is major news and even wars are fake.

All the actual evidence that we can inspect clearly shows the fingerprints of our tax supported governments who work with the heads of the major news groups to concoct staged shootings and orange clad terrorist victim beheadings. Paranoid conspiracy minded researchers like to think they are of interest to the government as they have been programmed to think by all the multimedia we have been drowned in our entire lives. The danger the truth poses to the mainstream media and to government is as nothing. Only paranoid governmental agents or paranoid old world moneyed interests, perhaps some old world money, blue blooded, European trust fund kids who smoke too much weed, and suffer from bouts of paranoia, would worry about what a relatively few number of people across the world think. Those of us who can demonstrate with absolute certainty how and why the news is fake, pose no danger to the system. 99.9999% of the world believes what it sees on screens. If they don't understand that the news media is not the investigative body it claims to be, there is nothing they can learn from anything I or anyone else puts out there. Most people, by the way, do not have the time nor interest to do what is really required to see through all the layers of deception. Even if they are interested in the idea of fake news, they will only take it so far and will not give it much credibility, perhaps thinking it isolated to an occasional incident. For example, someone might have logical problem with the 9/11 narrative but not with the Boston Marathon hoax. Both fake news like every other high profile over exposed news story obviously is, but most people know nothing about any of this. Many of us seem to buy into the idea that some of the contrived events involve actual "blood sacrifices". People love tabloid conspiracy nonsense, especially imaginative occult based fictional fare which becomes proven fact by means of endless rounds of circularly reasoned speculation.

Take a gander at the comment section below the average truther YouTube video and you are likely to come across comments that explain how many false flags are actually government sponsored MK Ultra style mass assassinations and not complete victimless hoaxes. Very imaginative ideas seem to attract more attention than videos and articles that deconstruct culture and break down the nonsense revealing it for the scripted and deceptive mythology it is, These people seem to honestly believe the news media is the investigative body its own marketing claims. Too many self proclaimed truthers seem unwilling to actually look for the truth they claim to so desperately seek, mistaking one Platonic Shadow after another for the real world and insisting that they need to look no further as they now know the absolute truth.


The Medium is the Massage. You are the medium for the message. We are the medium for governmental propaganda, pass it on.

Gossip becomes government building gospel. It is easy to lie to ourselves and others. We might even be more or less unconscious of some of the lies we tell ourselves. Hearsay and telephone game gossip are very much the medium for government. Fear and paranoia are easily spread by this medium and fear and paranoia become impetus for self censoring and conversation steering forms of behavior. We can end up thought and word policing ourselves and each other. Behavior is contagious and it takes only one person to start a paranoid avalanche. When we self censor, we do the work of government without being paid for it. When we try to censor others, or steer a conversation into a needless, button pushing, emotional, debate, we do the work of government for free. Human nature itself explains a lot of behavior we see online. The recent apparent YouTube "purge" seems to be the current truther soap opera du jour. Paranoia inducing headlines and tabloid mimicking social media editorials seem to attract more attention than rationale discourse that lacks fear mongering disposition. I have no idea what is or what is not the deal with YouTube and have a feeling that some of it might have to do with using copyrighted material. The devil is usually in the details that do not make for very good tabloid headlines and too, most people are not very interested in the details. YouTube is trying to become Netflix. There is good chance that they do not want alt-news media memes to effect their mainstream push. It seems to me YouTube wants to grow out of its public access phase. I don't know how many of you had public access cable television, but that is all Youtube is the digital equivalent of. Youtube wants to be HBO not public access. Commercial reality and brand perception management are also important contexts to consider. For all we know, the flat earth channels could be purged next.


We can be medium for verifiable reality or we can be medium for more adult mind damaging and government building, unverifiable gossip.

YouTube alternatives.

I don't know why YouTube is removing videos now. Maybe YouTube employs paranoid young people who live in states where weed just went legal. In any case, if you are looking for an alternative to YouTube, especially if you have reason to do so, perhaps you might want to read this article by James Corbett: https://www.corbettreport.com/solutions-stop-using-youtube/

The World dumbed down,

the real meaning of Edward Bernay's words regarding the mass public:

".... If it never becomes weary of the old methods used to persuade it to accept a given idea or commodity, its leaders can mentally stagnate."

"The man who would most effectively transmit his message to the public must be alert to make use of all the means of propaganda. Undoubtedly the public is becoming ignorant of the methods which are being used to mold its opinions and habits. If the public is less informed about the processes of its own life, it will be so much the more receptive to emotional appeals to its own interests. No matter how unaware, how accepting the public may become about publicity methods, it will always respond to base appeals, because it will always need food, crave amusement, lust for shallow commercialized beauty, respond to fear and terrorism. If the public becomes even less intelligent in its commercial demands, commercial firms will meet the new lower standards. If it never becomes weary of the old methods used to persuade it to accept a given idea or commodity, its leaders can mentally stagnate."

Fake News modus operandi addendum: funerals and crime scenes can be faked.

News journalists and governmental employees not on a need to know basis, and even average citizens not part of the national security clearance possessing crisis acting team, can be fooled in person, making for believable witnesses. In other words, there is an outdoor and live action, role playing theatrical element to fake news. Non disclose agreements and national security law cover for many fake news sins. The evidence that we can actually examine indicates that outdoor fakery is nothing new. The more recently declassified story about the Ghost Army reveals a long history of this exact kind of deception. And once you realize that the real target of these deceptions is actually the public and not the so called enemy as we are told, you can begin to understand that the origin of fake television news lies in the fake war footage created for the medium of film theater chain newsreels back before television became ubiquitous medium. You can begin to understand too, that there was always a live action, role playing, Hollywood, stage magician, special effects element to it all.

(This is excerpted from a prior AA Morris Proper Gander article entitled "HYPER-REALISTIC™ Training")


"ST/OPS Tactical Training Canada, ULC (ST/OPS Canada) provides Hyper-Realistic™ training services and products for military, law enforcement, and other organizations responsible for domestic security. The company employs state-of –the-art “Hollywood” style battlefield and combat wound effects, role players, military and police subject matter experts, and training scenarios to create training environments that are the most unique in the industry. ST/OPS Canada has supported section level through to battle group level training with these services at CFB Suffield, Alberta as well as at other military installations in Canada and the U.S.A. ST/OPS Canada also delivers specialized tactical medical training, such as Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) as well as customized programmes.Through its parent U.S. Company (Strategic Operations Inc (STOPS)), it manufactures patented modular mobile MOUT systems (known as Re-locatable Habitat Units (RHU)), medical simulation systems, props, faux weapons, and live fire targets and range enhancements. It also constructs, enhances, and transforms MOUT facilities."

Hyper-Realistic STOPS

"Strategic Operations Inc. (STOPS), defines Hyper-Realistic™ as “such a high degree of fidelity in the replication of battlefield conditions in a training environment that participants so willingly suspend disbelief that they become totally immersed and eventually stress inoculated. The following flow chart depicts how STOPS transforms ordinary training scenarios into Hyper-Realistic™ training scenarios. STOPS uses all the techniques of the theater, TV, and film industry - "The Magic of Hollywood” – to enhance live training in a way that is unique in the world (see the lower “lane” in the flow chart)."

"However, employing Hollywood techniques is not enough. Two additional ingredients are necessary: The first is an understanding of and expertise in, military tactics, techniques, and procedures(See the middle “lane” in the flow chart). And most importantly, add to this mix all the proprietary techniques, methods, procedures, and ideals that enable the effect to be not only extremely realistic, but dynamic, interactive, and repeatable. Large numbers of military personnel can experience combat conditions in a training environment that truly reflects real world conditions, but in a controlled, duplicatable, and dynamic setting."

"A Defense Science Board task force found that the probability of being a casualty decreases significantly after the first few “decisive combats". At our training laboratory you can test your equipment, your methods, and your tactics – in real world conditions – without the real world casualties. This is the value of Hyper-Realistic™ training. Researchers from the Naval Health Research recently studied Marines training in the Infantry Immersion Trainer (IIT) at Camp Pendleton. They evaluated training participants for stress reactivity, mitigation, and inoculation. The researchers measured salivary cortisol and alpha amylase levels in Marines prior to – and after – immersion in this Hyper-Realistic™ environment. Results in this on-going study found that the “acute stress response to the IIT training is substantial". Salivary hormone levels also found that this type of “IIT training provided a stress inoculation effect” (“Stress Reactions and Mitigation in Immersive Training", 31 March 2009)."

International, national, state, and even large city news is by design, propaganda, meant to create a false impression of the world's problems so we all support needless tax hungry government. We have to trust news media mouthpiece to verify the national, international and less local news they sell. We end up drawn into soap opera headlines and dramatic tabloid news narratives about people across the world. Any real crime and any real violence are local problems with local solutions. A national level problem that would require national level solution would be calling for the end of the manufacture of guns in the first place. Then the feds could spend their time going after factories that mass produce guns. This would be an easier operation to shut down than going after people growing weed in their closets and basements, but we live in an irrational world where anti-gun rights people never seem to realize they should call for the ending of the manufacture of the weaponry in the first place. All the laws in the world will not stop the black market as we all know. The war on drugs is not a real war, it is a marketing term, and a business plan for the criminal justice system and related industries. By the way, I am neither for nor against gun control. I think, for the most part, that gun control, like most, if not all, of these news promoted topics, is a local issue that should be dealt with on the local level.

I've seen this sort of behavior on message boards that cover innocuous subjects. We need not resort to paranoid dis-info agent musing to explain basic human behavior.

Washington D.C. before the invention of mass electronic media, before endless international crisis.

Washington D.C. used to be little more than fields of grazing sheep.

Fields of sheep are apt metaphor for how the public has long been fleeced by international government. Fields of sheep become huge toweting steel offices of them.

The Proper Gander

"Then the muckidy muck said line up here, everybody give a buck. To fight the three eyed Siamese cat takes money and a little bit of luck We've got a million of our best young mice to go out and volunteer to give up what they're livin' for to make the cat disappear. Let's give 'em a hand. Yay. We don't want that cat invadin' our land. No way. We're not scared. We're prepared."

"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 muckidy 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 muckidy muck must die. And die he did. The members of his staff they just fled. They were scared. Hah. Just not prepared."

This is the sort of thing our international taxes pay for. Generations of tax revenue have gone towards the research and development of video game technology.
