Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday urged European Jews to move to Israel after a Jewish man was killed in an attack outside Copenhagen’s main synagogue.



“Israel is your home. We are preparing and calling for the absorption of mass immigration from Europe,” Netanyahu said in a statement, repeating a similar call after attacks by jihadists in Paris last month when four Jews were among the dead.









Naomi Kizhner, an industrial designer and graduate student from Hadassah College in Jerusalem, has designed jewelry that theoretically extracts energy from the wearers own body. The ‘speculative’ jewelry is embedded into the person’s veins and uses their blood to turn small wheels inside the device.




It’s “about how far will we go to in order to ‘feed’ our addiction in the world of declining resources.”










Scottish researchers have found a correlation between suicide rates and natural lithium levels in the water supply, similar to studies in Japan and Austria.  Of course, two pieces of information that correlate do not imply that one causes the other, and studies will need to take place to decide whether or not the lack of lithium really can lead to depression and suicide.  One scientist involved has already received death threats.

Adding chemicals to public water supply is not uncommon.  Water gets dirty, parasites, bacteria and other things can survive and so much of the municipal water supply is treated with chlorine as a cleaning agent.  Some supplies are treated with fluoride to help mineralize teeth.








The techno wizards at the government’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) want upper-limb amputees to feel the sensation of touch again.

The Hand Proprioception and Touch Interfaces, or HAPTIX, the latest program in DARPA’s ongoing bid to improve prosthetic technologies for injured service members, is working to equip future prosthetics with a sense of touch.





This isn’t some pie-in-the-sky idea unlikely to come to fruition. DARPA is already working with several universities and laboratories to bring touch capabilities to prosthetics within the next four years, and it says it plans to “initiate take-home trials of complete, FDA-approved HAPTIX prosthesis systems within four years.”











The White House has proposed shifting money between two Social Security accounts in order to avert deep cuts in disability payments—specifically, reallocating a small portion of the Social Security payroll tax from its old-age account to disability for five years—as has been done numerous times in the past.

The AARP and other elder advocacy groups support the strategy, which would extend by 17 years the life of the disability reserve, currently projected to be exhausted by the end of 2016, according to acting commissioner of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin.




And it would save lives, she added. “I don’t want to be dramatic, but I’ve worked with this population my whole career,” Colvin said at a Senate Budget Committee hearing held Wednesday. Cutting already paltry disability benefits, she declared, would “give them a death sentence.”






“Since most disability recipients receive barely $1,200 a month, a cut of nearly 20 percent could mean the difference between affording food, medicine, clothing or paying bills. It is an unspeakable option and one that we are determined to prevent.”
—Senator Bernie Sanders




In fact, since most disability recipients receive barely $1,200 a month, a cut of nearly 20 percent could mean the difference between affording food, medicine, clothing or paying bills. It is an unspeakable option and one that we are determined to prevent.”

What’s more, the move is “a cynical attempt to divide the senior population from the disability community,” charged the report.







House Republicans are reportedly renewing efforts to cut the federal food stamp program, increasing restrictions on benefits and who may qualify for them.

House Agriculture Committee chairman Mike Conaway (R-Texas) will introduce the effort at the committee’s February 25 meeting, the first of several hearings scheduled this year to debate the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which administers food stamps. Conaway told the Wall Street Journal on Thursday that implementing changes may take months, but reports suggest that Republicans will aim to slash funding for the program and tighten eligibility requirements.

Currently, a family of four making less than $2,584 a month may qualify for the SNAP program.

However, food stamp rules are already being tightened across the country.








Show Notes :








Ned Colt (NBC) dropped dead of a stroke yesterday.. he was “supposedly” kidnapped during the Iraq war for several days, then freed?
Bob Simon (CBS) died in a car crash yesterday.. he was “supposedly” kidnapped held captive for 40 days in an Iraq jail
David Carr (NY Times) just died suddenly after interviewing Edward Snowden, and had just come out against Brian Williams from NBC while on CBS… calling Williams out for lying about being shot down in the Iraq war.
Bob Hager the NBC aviation expert now has a head on crash.


And of course Brian Williams is off the air for lying about the Iraq war.

Could it be that the people who did the lying during these past events are now being taken out? Is something else going on?






The media is very effective at manipulating people’s minds.


Of course, the biggest way is through propaganda.




Listen… here’s the basic thing I can tell you. The MOSt basic.
Every advertisement you see?  that’s propaganda.




There are MANY forms of propaganda, and I went into some of them before on my show.


They have wonderful little buzzwords attached to them, too.



Glitter propaganda, Plainfolks, Testimonial types, the list goes on.



Public opinion is VERY important.  It is EVERYTHING for them.





Public opinion is HUGE business, whether its in regards to corporations, individuals or governments.
They are all about changing the public opinion about a thing or an idea. They are masters of “the Spin”.
There are over 7000 public relations firms in the US alone.
Something that most people do not realize (and I would go so far as to say probably the vast majority) si that when you have a thought or do an action, this thought or action has been filtered through a VAST system of things inside of you.
They are seen through the lenses of EVERYTHING that you have gone through in your life, and everything that you have been exposed to.





You think you have free will over everything that you do, but you don’t.  Not really.  It’s free will limited and filtered through the programming that you’ve recieved since the moment you arrived on this planet.






Two USA Today journalists were ensnared in a propaganda campaign after reporting about millions of dollars in back taxes owed by the Pentagon’s top propaganda contractor in Afghanistan.


Eventually, one of the co-owners of the firm confessed to creating phony websites and Twitter accounts to smear the journalists anonymously.



The Washington Post exposed a counter-propaganda program by the Pentagon that recommended posting comments on a U.S. website run by a Somali expat with readers opposing al-Shabab.



“Today, the military is more focused on manipulating news and commentary on the Internet, especially social media, by posting material and images without necessarily claiming ownership,” reported the Post.








Troll handbook…
Sock puppets…
Cointel Pro and Psyops…
ALL mainstream outlets, and even a lot of “alternative” outlets lie.




I mean, do you really think that your media outlets are all individuals sitting at the desk, reading something that they wrote?
Here’s an example…
(conan o’brien clip)
It is ALL scripted.  It is ALL lies.  It is all hollywood smoke and mirrors.
And you are getting played.  I am getting played.  WE are getting played, and it really pisses me off.





Social norms and bias as a way of programming…



A form of social change that they are trying to enact is the idea that attitudes follow behavior.


Most people think that people’s attitudes about things need to be changed in order to get them to change their behavior, but, what social scientists have put forward is that when you change the behavior of someone, their attitude ALSO changes.


So you see them enacting regulations and laws to force people to change their behavior, and that way, they are changing the attitudes of people over time.


It’s subtle, but it works, and they are using it against people.


You can see it in the political correct mindset that they use when it comes to things like radical Islam.
Social norms is the biggest tool that the agenda pushers use.  They LOVE this tool, it is their favorite one, I think.



Here’s an example of a social norm at work.  Buskers, street musicians and performers, will seed money in their containers, so that people who walk by, see it, and think, oh, i will give to that guy too.  He’s obviously good.  My fellow human beingas have said so.


The REALLY good ones will have friends that will once in a while, when crowds are around, walk up and put money in the hat or tin or whatever, so that others can see it happening, and join in.



It’s a perfect example of bandwagon propaganda.




Here’s the kicker, though.  You might think that most of the people doing these things are trying to make positive changes.  Some maybe yes, but certainly not all.
Because here’s the truth about human beings.  Whatever you see other people doing, you’re likely going to do it too.  And if they push the negative agendas, you’re going to ACT negatively, because that is what is being reinforced.




Everything that you see in the media is finely tuned to make you believe whatever it is that they want you to believe.


They will do things, for example, if they are trying to sell the ideas of RFID chips being a “good thing” and “necessary”, they will put a sexy woman with bright colors or a white background or something similar in the video that you see.  They make it all witty and charming…




And if they are talking about a serious issue that you have to pay attention to, or that they want you to feel negative about, they will put a man with a deep voice or a serious toned voice with a dark background behind him on the screen.  Like for illegal drugs, they will have that kind of thing.  Talking about ISIS and terrorism, etc



It all sets the mood, which instantly puts the mind into a certain “state of being” that can then be manipulated.






I have an example of the “positive message” style of manipulation for you here.  It’s short, but it’s got a lot to it.


(RFID Chip Clip)



Now, I could go on for a really long time about all of the manipulation that is going on with this clip, but let me start by saying that, if you were to watch this video of it, you’d see a girl who is good looking, and there are all kinds of sporty and smart looking graphics going on in the background.



She’s all witty about the whole subject, and they found something that was going on to allow them to inject a humorous bent to it there.



In the middle of things, she talks about the Anti-RFID people, and makes them seem like they are freaks.

Notice the wording there.. “They are freaking out”


Programming the listener into hearing “freaking out” in relation to the subject.  You see how it goes?


Subtle, but its there.


It’s how our minds work.


Look at reading, for example.



When you read a book or something, you are not actually reading each and every word that is there. You skip a LOT.  You get the general gist of things  as you read, and your brain “fills in the blanks” as you go.
You might skip entire sentences, in fact, and still know what was being talked about in the paragraph.



Listening to things has the exact same things going on.  You don’t “hear’ every word, at least that you are aware of.


Your brain skips a lot.


It takes all of the sounds that are coming into your ear canals, and separates it out into piles of “useful” and “Not useful.”



In fact it’s estimated that for everything you hear, you only “retain” 20%.




So when looking at anything through the eyes of the media, that is what is happening to you.


You’re being programmed.  You’re being played.



So again going back to that clip, they try to make it appealing by talking about this cool club that is in the story.  They even mention it twice.




Because that is what they are reinforcing here.  “Oh it’s cool!  It’s so easy to just swipe your arm!  Be like the cool people!”





“Oh this is beneficial!  It makes sure your BABIES aren’t given to the wrong mother!”  Playing on that inherent fear in people and using the “for the children” power button.





Notice, as well, they also mentioned the club thing LAST.  That’s another manipulation tactic.


Whatever you last hear in a commercial or news story, etc, is the thing that you will retain the most.






And, don’t forget, as well, when it comes to “News Media Outlets” that the old adage is very true..



“Sex sells, and if it bleeds, it leads.”



They SALIVATE over horrific events occurring, because they know that is when the iron is hot and the strike has to be done.



There are 1500 newspapers, 1100 magazines, 9000 radio stations, 1500 tv stations and 2400 publishers owned by only 6 corporations.  GE, News-Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time-Warner and CBS
If they want our opinion, they will give it to us.
Actually, this image left off an even more disturbing fact: That those companies are actually getting their directives from only one of two major news outlets.

Reuters and the Associated Press.

Oh, but lets not forget that Reuters has its hands in the AP as well, so really you’ve only got ONE news source and these six just repackage what the chain of command sends down.



(Udo Ulfkotte clip)





You see how the manipulation can go?


It is so simple to do, and governments are directly involved in it.




They DIRECTLY involve themselves in social engineering.  The news is not news… it’s scripted.



Listen, here’s proof of how it is scripted.


It used to be not that easy to do.  The different network affiliates would get the general idea of a story, and they would script it out for the anchors to read at that point.


Now?  With the internet?  It’s as easy ass sending an email.



And what do these so called journalists do?


Sit there reading from their scripts.



And we’re supposed to believe that these people are the press.  That they are the “truth sayers” instead of the “sooth sayers”.



That they have gone out and found out the story, they are reporting it to you as it happens.






When they want our opinions, they will give them to us.


They will shape you, mold you, into becoming what they want you to become.


They do it simply and easily, and you never really realize that it’s happeneing.


And when you do>?


Oh they will tell you that the fluoride is fine for consumption, so that you can get even more of it into your body and allow your brain to function a little less than it did before.


Or how about more of that lithium in the water?  That’s coming next.  Then you’ll REALLY see people zombied out.



They’ve spent many years and many billions of dollars studying exactly how people will respond to certain triggers.  They have learned the fine points of manipulating everything that a person is.



They start it from birth.



Ask yourself, are the thoughts that I have really my own?


or am I parroting what someone else wanted  me to think?



Heck, guys, what you retain is retained forever.  It’s in there somewhere, and you go through every moment of your life looking through a set of lenses that is tainted by all of those things you have “picked up” over the years.



It’s a sad situation.




Repetition, saying the same things over and over, is one of the biggest ways they get you.


“Oh fear this and that.”  “watch out for the terrorists!”


“ISIS beheading ISIS beheading!”

“Measles!  Measles!  Watch out for the evil anti-vaxxers! They want your children to die!”




You will feel the way they want you to feel unless you are VIGILANT against this crap1
