Late last year the White House announced a new initiative to regulate behavior in order to silence dissent to their agenda. Known as “behavioral compliance techniques,” they are designed to be intervention tools to be used for shaping “social change,” and psychologically encouraging folks to go along with Obama’s radical left wing agenda. These methods of manipulating behavior are more commonly known as Psyops in the intelligence community and “propaganda” to the rest of us.
The Federal Government is openly using a method of manipulating public behavior and manufacturing consent in order to minimize popular resistance to their agenda. Teams of federal agents will subtly introduce “interventions” — likely in the form of information, news, and events — that will utilize psychological techniques to shape public behavior. It is a time-tested tactic, perfected by the CIA on foreign populations during wartime. The White House calls this “Behavioral Insights,” but it is better known as PSYOPS. (policestaeusa.com)
You have to wonder if the new attempts by the Federal Communication Commission to place government agents in news agencies are part of this initiative.
Struggling for many years to bring back the fairness doctrine, the FCC, through the Obama administration has found a new way to “regulate” what news corporations will be disseminating to the public. The excuse being used is that there is a need to ensure all of Americas “diverse populations” are being provided accurate information that the government deems as being critical.
The Federal Communications Commission is planning to send government contractors into the nation's newsrooms to determine whether journalists are producing articles, television reports, Internet content, and commentary that meets the public's "critical information needs." Those "needs" will be defined by the administration, and news outlets that do not comply with the government's standards could face an uncertain future. (The Washington Examiner)
To put it more precisely, the government is in full panic mode as many millions are tuning them out and turning to the alternative media. In other words, Americans are figuring out that they have been lied to on a massive scale, and the government intends to shove their lies down our throats.
Earlier this year, President Obama, in an interview with Bill O’Riley, blamed Fox News and Rush Limbaugh for the fact that his popularity is rapidly declining. It was because the conservatives kept bringing up those inconvenient scandals that we were all supposed to forget about. Does he think we are going to forget about this as well? In my opinion this represents the biggest flaw in liberal thinking; forsaking the fact that man was created with “freewill” and the ability to think. Liberals just assume that we can be conditioned to behave the way they want us too. Sadly, judging the way the public reacts to many of Obama’s unconstitutional power grabs, there seems to be a bit of truth to that. The left has certainly mastered the social sciences in order to push their agenda.
Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner that the government’s new attempts to “police the media” would be a violation of our constitutional liberties.
If the FCC goes forward, it's not clear what will happen to news organizations that fall short of the new government standards. Perhaps they will be disciplined. Or perhaps the very threat of investigating their methods will nudge them into compliance with the administration's journalistic agenda. What is sure is that it will be a gross violation of constitutional rights. (The Washington Examiner)
That’s the understatement of the year as everything this administration dabbles its hands in is a frontal assault on the Bill Of Rights. Yet, the vast majority of people seem to be at a loss about what to do about it. This is a testament to the effectiveness of this type of propaganda. The way Byron York describes the medias available options in the face of such tyrannical dictates is telling of the attitude of acceptance we have developed. In my opinion, both of these options are unacceptable. If we had a media that understood its role in defending liberty they would not let these government agents in the door. Of course, if we had a media that was doing its job, it would have never got this far out of hand in the first place. If we accept this with no push back there is no telling how far this radical administration will push their next initiative.
