Creating an Illusion of Chaos Is the Purpose of Anti-Trump Fake News

BY JOSHUA PHILIPP, THE EPOCH TIMES
June 12, 2019

In his 1928 book “Propaganda,” which helped shape tactics for modern advertising and politics, Edward Bernays wrote, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic societies.

“Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

Currently, these mechanisms of public control are being used to create an illusion of chaos.

Chaos has important, strategic uses—mainly, in locking down a situation that falls outside the normal mechanisms of control. With chaos as the goal, and by using half-truths, false conclusions, and information out of context, the media-industrial complex has built a false illusion around the Trump presidency that many Americans have taken as reality.



Is Matt Gaetz the future of Trump foreign policy?

 

June 12, 2019

Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, a Trump favorite and Fox News star, may have just fired the first loud shot of a new ideological war that may be heard around the world.

‘The “fog of war” is no fog to me, or any of the 700,000 people I serve,’ Gaetz clarified to a surprised Washington crowd of lefties and libertarians last month.

‘It is not hazy,’ said Gaetz, whose North Florida district has the highest concentration of active-duty military in America. ‘We see the impact of war every day among the people we love who shape our lives. It is a stark reminder that the unmatched freedoms we enjoy are not free — they are bought with the blood of American patriots. And it is our solemn duty and highest responsibility to make sure that this sacred currency is spent only when absolutely necessary.’

As I’ve reported, Gaetz quietly served as chief lobbyist against continued administration support of Saudi Arabia’s Yemen escapade, arguing that Trump should decline to veto a recent resolution condemning the war. Trump didn’t listen, but he and his team are still listening to Gaetz, who Trump loyalists are urging to cross state lines and reclaim the Alabama Senate seat lost by Roy Moore.

Polemics against the security state are nothing new. Gaetz’s left-libertarian audience on Capitol Hill would have gladly taken up arms against any of America’s recent and misguided foreign ventures  — in Iraq, in Libya, in Syria. But a foreign policy anchored in support of the sitting president of the United States who is also, until further notice, the unquestioned standard-bearer of a major political party?



Tasting Room is Giving Liquor Stores a Run for Their Money

1_kal-gajoum


We all love wine. In fact, most nights of the week our editors sip a glass or two to wind down after work. The liquor store nearest us doesn’t always have the best prices, or the best selection. They have limited shelf space, and store employees don’t always recommend bottles we’ll enjoy. Liquor stores are focused on volume and margin (it’s not their fault rent is expensive) leaving many people reaching for the yellow-labeled bottle with the kangaroo they stick in the front of the store. Tasting Room seeks to change that.

Tasting Room, the fastest growing wine club in the nation, is changing how wine is sold. Think of it like the movie industry: where do you go to rent a movie, and who gives you your movie recommendations? If you’re anything like me, you look forward to Netflix and food after work. We don’t hit the video store to browse new releases or recommended movies anymore. Likewise, new technology has penetrated the wine industry. Tasting Room’s wine recommendation technology makes informed wine selections for you (based on your preferences, the way Netflix does), and ships tailored bottles to your door—bottles that come with a guarantee that you’ll enjoy them.

Here’s how it works. When you sign up for Tasting Room, you’ll receive a six-bottle tasting kit, which is where the fun begins. Log on to the site and you’re guided through an engaging, interactive tasting where you pit the wines against one another. You simply click on the wines you prefer in the head-to-head match-ups, and based on your ratings, Tasting Room makes informed wine selections for you in the form of Wine Profile. It’s a simple, straightforward guide that points out which types of wine you tend to gravitate towards (in both red and white categories), as well as the regions they come from, and even the foods they pair well with.

Soon thereafter, you’ll receive a 12-bottle case of different wines tailored to match your preferences. The club ships you a case of wine as often as you’d like for about $12/bottle. You can easily customize your shipment date(s), size, and contents on the site. I just keep rating subsequent shipments, and they automatically send me a mix of light dry whites and fruity reds because that’s what I like according to my Wine Profile (and my taste buds). I have yet to receive a bottle I did not enjoy.

Every bottle comes with a satisfaction guarantee, so if you ever receive a wine that doesn’t match your taste preferences, Tasting Room will replace it or issue you a wine credit to purchase another bottle from the extensive – and delicious – collection on the site. It’s well worth it at less than $10 to join (that gets you your tasting kit), and you can cancel at anytime.

YouTube’s new censorship purge BANS videos that talk about illegal immigrants: MORE proof the video platform is an authoritarian cult run by intolerant bigots

Anyone who crosses into the United States without following duly-passed laws and properly-enacted procedures is in our country illegally. The government’s term for these people is “illegal alien.”

There’s nothing derogatory about it or demeaning or insulting. It’s a legal term, period, and it perfectly describes someone who has not followed U.S. law when entering the country.

Illegal. Alien. Not a citizen. Not from here. Alien. Illegal alien.

But the Left-wing speech Nazis who run social media companies have decided that the term “illegal alien” is derogatory, demeaning, and insulting. And because they say so, then it is, period. No discussion. No argument. No compromises. 

Just enforcement of the decision to ban the term. By banning people — conservatives especially — who dare to drop the truth bomb that anyone who isn’t in America legally is an illegal alien.



All white people are being removed from history as revisionists rewrite science, medicine and technology to eliminate pioneers based on the color of their skin

 

In case you haven’t noticed, anti-white racism is rapidly becoming an accepted cultural norm throughout the United States and much of the Western world.

Mainstream entertainment, news, education, and even science and medicine, have all but completely been infiltrated and subverted by nefarious entities that are hellbent on pushing endless, white-hating propaganda and revisionist, anti-white history on the masses – their goal being, well, you can probably figure it out.

It’s suddenly no longer okay to be white in countries where white people are the majority, as the subverters that now control the narrative have successfully brainwashed and indoctrinated a sizable segment of their populations into believing that being white automatically means that you’re evil, and being black or brown automatically means that you’re good.

Using lies and deception as their catalysts for change, these wicked subverters have successfully poisoned the well. They’ve convinced a disturbing number of useful idiots, many of whom are white themselves, that all white people are inherently racist against black and brown people, and have systematically taken advantage of these people groups all throughout history in order to build thriving civilizations.

All of it is a complete lie, of course. But this is what’s being taught to the next generation of “open” minds through movies, television, and in the classroom, with little resistance from guilt-complexed whites, many of whom seem to be accepting the lie that they’re evil because of the color of their skin.



Magic mushrooms could replace anti depressants within five years, says new psychedelic research centre

Exclusive: ‘People on antidepressants long-term say they feel blunted, with psychedelic therapy it’s the opposite, they talk about an emotional release, a reconnect…

Hallucination-inducing drugs like magic mushrooms could be about to break big pharma’s stranglehold on the hugely lucrative market for antidepressants, according to the head of the world’s first centre for psychedelic research.

Antidepressant prescriptions have doubled in England in a decade with around seven million adults taking the drugs, and the global market is predicted to be worth $15.9bn (£12.5bn) by 2023.

At Imperial College London, Dr Robin Carhart-Harris is leading one of the first trials to test how therapy using psilocybin mushrooms, which are currently banned in the UK, compares to leading antidepressants.

While he won’t prejudge the results of the study, he says participants describe a cathartic emotional “release” with psilocybin therapy – the polar opposite of antidepressants, which patients complain leave their emotions, whether positive or negative, “blunted”.

It is the first of many studies planned under the banner of the new Centre for Psychedelic Research at London’s Imperial College.

A large empty floor of the university’s Hammersmith campus will house a bank of treatment rooms that make it the UK’s first psychedelic therapy research clinic, and a “prototype and inspiration” for licensed psychedelic medicine clinics of the future.

Trials of psilocybin in treating eating disorders, and a study of the effects of powerful hallucinogenic DMT on the brain, are already planned following Imperial’s commitment to the centre.

But it is the work on depression where research is most advanced, and most promising.

On the current trial, around 60 participants with moderate to severe depression will receive psilocybin treatment accompanied by a therapy session with a clinical psychologist.

The participants will also be randomly allocated to receive either a placebo or the drug escitalopram, with neither researchers or patients knowing who is in each group.

Escitalopram is a type of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), the drugs which account for the largest chunk of the antidepressant market.

“If you ask people who are taking SSRIs chronically, they often say ‘I feel blunted’,” Dr Carhart-Harris told The Independent, meaning both negative and positive emotions are suppressed.

“With psilocybin therapy they say the opposite, they talk about an emotional release, a reconnection, and this key emotional centre being more responsive.”

Patients will have MRI scans to test changes in their brains after psilocybin therapy (Centre for Psychedelic Research)

The team use MRI scans to study psychedelics’ effects on the brain and the drug appears to reduce activity in the coordinating regions, releasing their grip and allowing the more primitive emotional centres to the fore.

Other early indications are that the list of side-effects is “twice as long” for escitalopram as it is for psilocybin therapy, and it is much faster acting than antidepressants – which can take months to work.

Treatment rooms are a soothing environment where participants are supported through their psychedelic experience (Centre for Psychedelic Research)

However, the treatment may not be suitable for everyone.

During the therapy sessions, patients are encouraged to follow the stream of the psychedelic experience which can be extremely vivid and may require them to confront past traumas or experiences.

“We don’t call it a ‘bad trip’,” Dr Carhart-Harris says. “We call it a ‘challenging psychological experience’ and we’re honest with people that it can be hellish.

“It can be nightmarish, but we’re prepared for this and this treatment model requires you literally face your demons.”

Psychedelic therapy is unlikely to be suitable for people with psychosis and regulators will need evidence of its effectiveness and safety from clinical trials.

Organisation pushing for psychedelics to be used as anti-depressant

But there is little evidence that they pose a risk of overdose or addiction and that could speed their route to approval.

Fresh magic mushrooms could be picked or bought in shops legally in the UK until 2005, when a change in law closed the loop hole and made them Class A drugs alongside crack cocaine.

“I would imagine if you had some bookmakers doing the odds, there would be strong odds on that [psychedelic therapy] will be licensed sometime in the next five to 10 years – maybe sooner,” Dr Carhart-Harris says.

That could put it on a collision course with powerful interests of the pharmaceutical industry, particularly if trials show psilocybin therapy to be superior to SSRIs

Psilocybin therapy may allow depressed people’s brains to rewire in a positive way, rather than suppressing good and bad emotion (Centre for Psychedelic Research)

“The implications of that are actually frightening to me, thinking of the power and influence of big pharma,” Carhart-Harris says. “What are they going to do with that if there’s this big public demand for the ‘mushroom therapy’, and not the Prozac?”

While there is a growing trend for “microdosing” psilocybin or LSD, the evidence to date suggests it is the combination of therapy and psychedelic experience that offers the best option of a lasting alternative to chronic antidepressants.

Psychedelics research has had to rely on philanthropic funding for years, but latest wave of trials show the field is set on not repeating the mistakes of the past (The Independent)

“If you strip the drug away from therapy you start seeing the adverse events that were being reported in the 1960s, when psychedelics left the clinic and became popularised,” Dr Carhart-Harris adds

“None of us want those mistakes to be made again.”

Dr James Rucker is another of those researching the potential benefits of psychedelics, over at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London.

The King’s team are launching two trials, one looking at whether psilocybin therapy can help people whose depression is resistant to treatment with conventional antidepressants.

He says it was “possible” the drug could be licensed in five years. “But only if everything goes to plan, and you know what they say about best-laid plans.”

In Dr Rucker’s mind the process is similar to the approval of ketamine, where the first trials in depression took place in the 1990s and the first ketamine-based medicines are only now being licensed.

Psilocybin has much lower potential for abuse and overdose, but watchdogs will still need stage three trials which haven’t even begun.

“Like all treatments, they will suit some people but not others,” he told The Independent. “The trick, as ever, is trying to work that out before administration. But that trick has proven to be remarkably difficult to pull off, particularly in psychiatry.


“You Are Making a Giant Mistake!” – Trump Warns Tech Giant Twitter on Censoring Conservatives… When Do the Lawsuits Begin?

 

President Trump warned Twitter again on Sunday to allow First Amendment rights to conservative users.

President Trump: Twitter should let the banned Conservative Voices back onto their platform, without restriction. It’s called Freedom of Speech, remember. You are making a Giant Mistake!

Twitter, Facebook and Google-YouTube have been censoring and banning conservative voices since the 2016 election.

The Gateway Pundit has reported on this extensively over the past few years.

 Image result for images of twitter ban

We reported in July 2018 that Twitter has long been accused of censoring conservatives.  Twitter  evens censors and shadowbans the President of the United States, Donald Trump’s twitter account, @realDonaldTrump.

In July 2018 we reported that a study by the leftist website VICE News found that Twitter is censoring top pro-Trump lawmakers.   Twitter is targeting pro-Trump Republican lawmakers Matt Gaetz, Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and John Ratcliffe with the same shadowbanning technique.

Twitter is also censoring prominent pro-Trump accounts including: Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, Paul Joseph Watson, TGP’s Jim Hoft, TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks and Laura Loomer among others.

In July there was even video proof that President Trump’s Twitter page is being censored.

Gateway Pundit contributor Cristina Laila received a notice in 2018 that her tweet violated Pakistani law.
What the h*ll?

The President has over 57 million followers on his account but rarely does he receive more than 20,000 retweets or 100,000 likes on his tweets.

And a study published at Quillette by Professor Richard Hanania at Columbia University found that Twitter censors conservatives over liberals at a 21 to 1 ratio.

Ultimately Twitter, Facebook and Google-YouTube will face lawsuits for their continued attacks on conservative users.

It must happen.



Nolte: More Lies of Omission Found in Dirty Cop Robert Mueller’s Report

JOHN NOLTE

More flagrant lies of omission have been discovered in the Robert Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction), reports the Hill.

“In a key finding of the Mueller report, Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is tied to Russian intelligence,” writes John Solomon. Solomon adds:

But hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a “sensitive” intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters.

Why Mueller’s team omitted that part of the Kilimnik narrative from its report and related court filings is not known. But the revelation of it comes as the accuracy of Mueller’s Russia conclusions face increased scrutiny.

The incomplete portrayal of Kilimnik is so important to Mueller’s overall narrative that it is raised in the opening of his report. “The FBI assesses” Kilimnik “to have ties to Russian intelligence,” Mueller’s team wrote on Page 6, putting a sinister light on every contact Kilimnik had with Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman.

So during the Obama administration — let me repeat that for the CNN-impaired: the Obama administration —  this same Konstantin Kilimnik worked with the Obama State Department and “delivered written reports to U.S. officials via emails that stretched on for thousands of words[.]”

What’s more, according to Solomon, whose work debunking the Russia Collusion Hoax has so far been as vital as it has been beyond reproach, the “FBI knew all of this, well before the Mueller investigation concluded.”

And yet, Dirty Cop Robert Mueller and his team of partisan Democrats chose — chose — to omit this vital exculpatory context about the Manafort/Kilimnik relationship in their final report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction).

The reason for this is obvious… These dirty cops are not interested in fully informing the public. This is a team of left-wing opposition-researchers out to damage a president they despise, out to make him and those around him look as bad as possible, all in the hope it will lead to impeachment.

And the reason impeachment is the goal is because these dirty cops all know their so-called case against Trump would never in a million years survive in a court of law.

Sadly, this is not the first time this dirty cop sought to deliberately mislead the American people through his report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction).

As Breitbart News reported this week, Mueller deliberately and deceptively edited the transcript of a voicemail left by a Trump attorney to make the voicemail sound as shady and incriminating as possible. The full transcript of the voicemail, however, which Mueller did not want the public to see, left a completely different impression — revealed it to be innocuous.

So what he now has with this latest revelation is still more proof that even though the Mueller Report debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction, it is still a dishonest document constructed by a dirty cop willing to fabricate evidence (by omission) as a means to frame a duly elected president he would like to see impeached.

On top of all this, let’s not forget Mueller’s disastrous press conference last week, where Mr. Straight Arrow arrogantly refused to take questions, arrogantly refused to testify before the people’s representatives in Congress, and was so zealous in attacking Trump, he screwed up big time and had to repair the damage with that humiliating climb-down letter.

Hollywood studios’ demand for round-the-clock abortions reveals demonic sickness and psychopathy of the “entertainment” industry, including Disney

The American entertainment industry, which is almost entirely dominated by Leftists, absolutely hates human life. In fact, Hollywood is so anti-human life that nearly every production studio that currently makes films, television shows, or commercials in the state of Georgia is threatening to leave over the state’s recently signed-into-law “heartbeat” bill to protect the lives of unborn human babies from being aborted after their heartbeats become detectable, which is around six weeks gestation.

Hollywood claims that its threats are somehow virtuous because “women’s health” is now supposedly at risk. It’s as though there’s no other way to avoid pregnancy, according to Hollywood Leftists, than to stab an unborn baby in the head, tear apart its tiny limbs, and either dispose of the remains or sell them on the black market to buy Lamborghinis.

It’s just ancient paganism repackaged, abortion being an act of mass sacrifice to the Canaanite god Moloch, which Hollywood and the rest of the Left Cult somehow believes is good and moral. But to everyone else, it’s about as Satanic as it gets to suggest that protecting unborn human life represents “oppression,” and something worthy of economic retaliation.

“There is no higher value in our cosmopolitan overlords’ minds than a woman’s ability to kill her own baby free from any consequence,” writes Chris Menahan for Information Liberation about the absolute derangement of today’s Leftists. “Abortion is their bible, abortion is their religion … Abortion is a religious sacrament.”



The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors

I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

Queen Elizabeth II has welcomed U.S. President Donald J Trump to Buckingham Palace to inspect the royal guards.

The U.S. President and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, were flown to the grounds of Buckingham Palace on Marine One, landing on the West Lawn, where they were met by Prince Charles.

They party was also honoured by two 41-gun salutes fired simultaneously in Green Park, by the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, and at the Tower of London by the Honourable Artillery Company.

The President then met the Queen on the terrace, the pair shaking hands and exchanging a few words, with the monarch smiling broadly throughout the exchange.

This is not the first time President Trump met the Queen, having met her during his working visit in July 2018, joining her for tea at Windsor Castle. The Queen, then, appeared to enjoy the company of the President and that of the First Lady.

The red coated Brigade of Guards are known the world over for their stern role guarding Royal palaces and military buildings in London. While they typically remain silent while on duty, and stay unflinching when members of the public or tourists attempt to interact with them, if addressed by the commander in chief of the United States of America they would certainly have responded.

While the Guards are probably best known to the global public for their ceremonial duties in London, this is actually only a small part of their role as front-line combat troops. Guards have deployed alongside U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq, where they were among the heaviest fighting. Grenadier Guard Lance Corporal James Ashworth was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross, the highest British military decoration for valour in the face of the enemy, for his action in Helmand Province Afghanistan in 2012.

After the inspection, the Trumps and Royal Family returned to the interior of Buckingham Palace for a private lunch with the Queen.

Later in the day, the President will take a tour of Westminster Abbey and then meet with Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, for tea at Clarence House, and in the evening there will be a State Banquet at Buckingham Palace.
