Public becomes more aware of government’s constant lies and contradictions
August 29, 2013
There is one war the American people are winning, and that’s the info war.
Government and the mainstream media have lost all credibility, leaving opportunity for the alternative media to swoop in and expose the truth, waking up people across the globe.
The continued unraveling of government scandals backed up by a clearly biased mainstream media narrative has Americans fed up and unwilling to consent to another war.
Nearly a month ago, Infowars reported that the Department of Defense had announced plans to increase its public affairs efforts due to the independent media’s devastating effect on their ability to control its negative news stories.
The DoD specifically blamed DrudgeReport.com and citizen journalists as the reason for no longer having the people’s support.
“The public is more quickly becoming aware of the constant patterns of contradictions and habitual lying by a government long ago captured by a group of corrupt interests,” we reported.
Last month, the Secretary of Defense for public affairs, George Little, admitted, “..we cannot hide our bad news stories. Bad news gets out one way or the other and we must come to terms with telling bad stories as well as the good.”
During a White House briefing, Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest, desperately tried to convince the public of the need for war with Syria. Earnest reiterated the importance of the US need to respond to the use of chemical weapons in order to “enforce a critically international norm.”
“It is not OK for totalitarian dictators to flout chemical weapons with impunity,” said Earnest.
“The global community wants this norm enforced,” Earnest stated; he failed, however, to draw a parallel between the US’s own murder of innocent men, women and children via the covert drone program and the Assad regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians.
Of course that comparison can’t truly be made because the West and its allies are likely responsible for the chemical weapons attack, not Assad.
When asked if Obama planned to obtain a vote from Congress to authorize an attack on Syria, Earnest said the President will seek “robust congressional consultation” and will act to “protect international norms against weapons of mass destruction.”
Earnest rejected comparisons of an attack on Syria to the invasion of Iraq, persisting it’s not the goal of the US to change Syria’s regime, such as it was in Iraq.
The Deputy Press Secretary maintained an attack on Syria would be “limited and discrete.” He also said the US government does not believe they need to wait for the U.N. chemical weapons team to complete their investigation because they already know Assad is responsible and any other details are irrelevant.
Reporters in attendance to the White House briefing were noticeably pushing hard for more information, calling the government’s so-called “proof” merely circumstantial evidence.
Reporters asked whether the US government intends to release the remaining proof they allegedly have, but Earnest clammed up citing the information as classified and expressed his inability to speak on it.
He told reporters the classified information needed to be withheld due to national security reasons, but reporters kept pushing, asking if the Obama administration really believes Assad’s use of chemical weapons is a “direct imminent threat to the United States.”
“Assad’s willingness to use chemical weapons endangers the global community,” said Earnest.
The public’s growing skepticism of the governments’ narrative can only be attributed to the explosive growth of alternative media.
According to a report by Story Leak, “…former US National Security Adviser and Trilateral Commission co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinski commented on the growing inefficiency of war due to the increased political knowledge of the public.”
Americans are waking up. If our rogue government decides to go to war with Syria, it will certainly be against the wishes of the American people, fueling their skepticism and furthering their mistrust of the mainstream media.
