Leaked 49-page memo documents how George Soros is behind social media censorship

Source: The Duran

A new leaked memo obtained by The Free Beacon documents how George Soros funded groups plotted with Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms to eliminate conservative “right wing propaganda.”

The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump’s administration.

confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news” was presented in January 2017  by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time.

The Gateway Pundit reported that in January 2017 after Hillary Clinton was shellacked in the November 2016 election top Democrat operatives at Media Matters, Share Blue, American Bridge, and CREW came together and released their two-year plan to take back power in Washington DC.

The document obtained by The Free Beacon states that Media Matters and other Soros funded groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”

According to the document, the radical left groups have been working with Facebook and Twitter to eliminate conservative content.

The Free Beacon obtained a copy of the memo, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” by attending a January 2017 retreat in Florida sponsored by Media Matters founder David Brock and 100 donors.

WND reports that the memo spells out a four-year agenda that deployed Media Matters along with American Bridge, Shareblue and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to attack Trump and Republicans. The strategies are impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat “fake news.”

WND reports…

The document claims Media Matters and far-left groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”

“The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it,” the memo states. “With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation.”

Media Matters met with Facebook, which boasts some 2 billion members worldwide, to discuss how to crack down on fake news, according to the memo.

The social media giant was provided with “a detailed map of the constellation of right-wing Facebook pages that had been the biggest purveyors of fake news.”

Brock’s memo also says Media Matters gave Google “the information necessary to identify 40 of the worst fake new sites” so they could be banned from Google’s advertising network.

The Gateway Pundit pointed out that in 2016, Google carried out that plan on the Gateway Pundit blog and other conservative sites, including Breitbart, the Drudge Report, Infowars, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse.

Facebook, meanwhile has changed its newsfeed algorithm, ostensibly to combat “fake news,” causing a precipitous decline in traffic for many conservative sites.

President Donald Trump himself was affected, with his engagement on Facebook dropping by 45 percent.

A study in June by Gateway Pundit found Facebook had eliminated 93 percent of the traffic of top conservative news outlets.

Western Journal, in its own study, found that while left-wing publishers saw a roughly 2 percent increase in web traffic from Facebook following the algorithm changes, conservative sites saw a loss of traffic averaging around 14 percent.

‘Totalitarian impulse’ of the left

President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager charged last week the giants of Silicon Valley are stifling free speech, particularly conservative speech, manifesting the “inherent totalitarian impulse” of the left.

On Friday, Facebook appeared to be “shadow banning” the non-profit education site PragerU, founded by talk-host Dennis Prager, causing a drop in engagement of 99.9999 percent while removing two videos regarded as “hate speech.”

After Facebook rejected a highly inspirational ad for a Republican congressional candidate that included images depicting her parents’ persecution under the Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia, Twitter followed up with its own ban.

WND reported earlier this month Facebook banned a pro-life video ad by a judicial candidate, giving the same explanation.

On Aug. 6,  WND reported, Facebook, YouTube and Apple banned commentator Alex Jones and his Infowars website within hours of each other.

Last month, WND reported moderate Muslims and counter-terrorist activists were increasingly being restricted by Silicon Valley, while terrorist content remains on social-media platforms, according to researchers.

Trump campaign chief Parscale said last week the banning of Jones “will inevitably lead to the silencing of those with far less controversial opinions.”

“What we are seeing in Big Tech is the inherent totalitarian impulse of the Left come into full focus,” Parscale said.

Reader Email: Is Trump Legitimately Working To Take Down The Deep State?

Source: Collective Evolution

IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:A reader sent a passionate email after reading one of my articles. This email contained many important questions about how we look at Donald Trump (and others like Hillary Clinton) that I felt would allow me to give clarity and nuance to my message.
  • Reflect On:Is it necessary to ignore one person’s character flaws in order to get behind efforts to take down the Deep State? Is it important to identify a ‘savior’ here, or can we see it as more of a collective awakening within which we are all participants?

The following email came from a reader who brought up some very important concerns about Donald Trump and his role in fighting for justice on behalf of women (combating sex trafficking, for example) and taking down the Deep State. I thought that it would be worthwhile to publish my response to this email since I thought that many readers may have similar concerns and questions, and Sharine graciously consented. Below, I have broken up her email into several sections so I can respond one section at a time, but please note that her words were all sent in a single email:

Hi Richard!

My name is Sharine and I am fairly new (summer 2018) to the Collective Evolution site. I became a member last month.

Today, I read your article “Many Insiders Believe Military Tribunals For Deep State Will Happen Any Time Now,” and I have some questions and concerns that you may or may not have time to address, but I feel compelled to share anyway!

First, I feel that I grasp a basic understanding of the Deep State, mostly from reading on CE and watching both David Wilcock’s “Disclosure” interview and Joe Martino’s video about the illusion and the cycle of the cabal in politics.

Second, I want to disclose that I am a cis-gender female survivor of sexual assault at the age of 52, sexual harassment throughout my whole life, and an attempted rape at the age of 15. This is important to my concerns.

That said, here goes:

Why would enlightened beings set up our world so that men as hideous as Donald J. Trump and possibly Brett Kavanaugh would be the people I am to trust to take down the Deep State and begin to cripple the cabal?

R: First off, the contention that Donald J. Trump is ‘hideous’ is a matter of opinion, and when you say ‘possibly’ Brett Kavanaugh, I take you to mean he is ‘possibly’ hideous (rather than ‘possibly’ someone you should trust). Nonetheless, let’s focus on Trump for this question: is it likely that Donald Trump has had sex with prostitutes, been unfaithful with partners, acted and spoke in a ‘macho’ way at times, lied in business and in relationships, cheated on his taxes and otherwise did many unethical and illegal things in business? Yes. Some people may feel this makes him hideous, fair enough. But we have to look at the context.

In the article you read, we were discussing a Deep State that indulges in sex and slave trafficking, human mind-control and experimentation, the sexual abuse, torture and murder of children, as well as war, genocide and mass disease creation in the world. Assuming, as I do, that Donald Trump does not do any of these things, and his greatest crimes are those mentioned above, then if we call him hideous then have we left ourselves with any proportionate adjective to describe perpetrators within the Deep State?

To your main question about enlightened beings, who I take to refer to higher-dimensional positive beings that are fostering human evolution from a higher density, I would say: Why not Donald Trump? If it were some kind of perfect Jesus-type character, would we not feel somewhat disconnected from any positive actions that would be brought, and simply have a new idol to follow? True, some people do idolize Trump, but that is the unhelpful extreme in the other direction, because we have to move past idolatry and see ourselves as all being in this struggle together, each having to acknowledge our own darkness and inadequacies while not giving up our push towards enlightenment. In having a fallible, flawed person leading the charge to take down the Deep State, we may not have an ‘inspiring’ leader at the helm, but it becomes much easier to look past him and see the takedown of the Deep State as the fruits of the collective efforts of thousands, if not tens of thousands of patriotic men and women of integrity, an effort ultimately grounded in the collective consciousness of humanity as a whole.

I want the demise as much as any loving human, but that’s a big, nasty, jagged, bright “red pill” to swallow. It’s like saying it’s okay that Trump is an admitted sexual assaulter and racist, misogynistic homophobe but it’s not okay that Clinton turned a blind eye to sex trafficking (or whatever it is CE claims about her) because he’s going to save the day.

R: I would challenge your assertion as ‘fact’ that Trump is an ‘admitted sexual assaulter.’ I don’t think Trump has ever admitted to being a sexual assaulter. As far as being a racist, misogynistic homophobe: I haven’t seen any evidence that Trump is either a racist or a homophobe. Is he misogynistic? A misogynist is defined as “a person who dislikes, despises, or is strongly prejudiced against women.” I don’t get the impression that Trump is this way at all. Certainly, he may have long been an egocentric, macho, privileged white male who puts himself above woman, but I believe this stems from personal insecurity rather than an actual hatred.

Whether or not you have to be ‘okay’ with who Donald Trump actually is, is your own personal matter. You don’t have to be ‘okay’ with Donald Trump in order to want the Deep State taken down, even if you do believe as we do that Trump is serving a role (certainly not leading) this takedown. In the bigger picture, though, our destiny as human beings is to be ‘okay’ with whatever IS, with the TRUTH, and seek not to resist the truth, but fight against those whose agenda is to hide the truth.

Which brings us to Hillary Clinton. I have to say that personally I am ‘okay’ with Hillary Clinton, because as a matter of spiritual practice I believe that everything is as it should be in our world for the evolution of humanity to be served. That said, I strongly believe that revealing the truth about who Hillary Clinton is will serve that evolution, and if this truth is revealed then it will be plain as day that she needs to be removed from our society. It is only because of the immense power of the Deep State that Hillary Clinton is not in jail right now.

If the Deep State was not protecting her, you or I could have her indicted on several crimes simply based on the information that’s in the public domain, let alone the hordes of more sensitive information that is hidden. Just off the top of my head, evidence is out there demonstrating that she allowed diplomats to be killed at the Benghazi embassy because they were beginning to resist the gun trafficking operation there, leaked confidential information on an illegal private server to China which led to the death or incarceration of at least a dozen CIA officers embedded there, illegally took over the Democratic National Committee in order to defeat Bernie Sanders who otherwise would have won the nomination, was involved in (not necessarily ‘running’) a pedophilia operation in Washington, and is highly implicated in the staggering number of murders of people who were investigating the Clinton Foundation, which itself is well known to be linked to illegal activities.

Didn’t Clinton inspire women and men all across the USA to stand for things like universal healthcare and other good stuff, while Trump inspires hatred and anger?

R: Clinton may have inspired some women and men in her rise to power as a woman in American politics, but I don’t believe she cared about inspiring people except to the point that it got her elected and gave her power. There are many women in politics who fight for the truth and are positive role models, such as Cynthia McKinney and Tulsi Gabbard, whom I have written about. To equate supporters of Clinton as supporters of women and non-supporters of Clinton (or supporters of Trump) as non-supporters of women is one of the most egregious and sinister points of perception that has been carefully crafted by mainstream media, and easy to fall prey to. Plain and simple, I believe Hillary Clinton is a modern-day Lady Macbeth. I believe her whole public face is an act and a deception, that she is part of the Deep State and guilty of some of the most horrific crimes imaginable to humanity, including the sexual abuse, torture, and murder of children.

As for Trump inspiring hatred and anger, it is important to observe that since Trump came into office intent on helping a huge alliance of patriots take down the Deep State, all the Deep State flunkies in politics, Hollywood, and mainstream media have done is everything they can to invoke anger and hatred upon him. Earlier in his presidency, there were over half a dozen celebrities who all suddenly tried to seed the idea of Trump getting killed into the minds of people (you’ll recall the Kathy Griffin photo below among others). Who is truly inspiring anger and hatred here? If you can separate Donald Trump from the campaign to demonize him that has been relentless and ongoing through mainstream media, you may find that Donald Trump himself is not inspiring as much hatred and anger as it seems.

Isn’t the cabal in existence to restrict and eventually deny freedom and well-being for women, vulnerable populations, the poor, the Earth itself and its inhabitants?

R: They are not in existence to restrict and deny freedom as such, but only to the extent that it serves our evolution. That is why their ultimate plans of world domination will fail. From the point of view of the higher realms, when it gets to the point that the cabal no longer serves our evolution, then it is time for them to disband. But their disbanding is not going to happen if we stay asleep as a collective. Humanity must act, and take back its power through an awakening of consciousness.

I guess what I’m saying is, the physical world matters, too, so why would the forces of light and love in the Universe demand that I overlook abuse and corruption by one person, but not another? I’m confused.

R: I agree that the physical world matters too. The forces of light and love are not asking you to overlook one thing and not another; there is no need to overlook the ‘truth’ about either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but rather to separate the ‘truth’ from the propaganda and deception. In a way, it is a good practice of consciousness to embrace some ambiguity, because human life is filled with ambiguity and we need to embrace it rather than gravitating towards one polarity or the other. The idea that Donald Trump is a deeply flawed man who has done things in his past that would not endear him to women, and the idea that in his current position of considerable power he would like to do what he can for the freedom, safety, and standing of women in society are not mutually exclusive statements. There’s ambiguity, but not contradiction.

It seems to me that this premise is asking me to dismiss the very real-world fact that my teenage brother’s best friend tried to rape me in my own home, when what he did was wrong. His negative energy caused darkness in the Universe, just as it is wrong for Trump to openly mock a disabled person, and a woman who claims to have been sexually assaulted, and a female reporter who was simply asking him a question, and on and on.

R: It’s important to notice where you may be building a chain of assumptions on a flawed premise. You use the word ‘dismiss’ here, and nobody is asking you to dismiss something real that happened to you. You have the freedom to hold its ‘wrongness’ for the rest of your life. That being said, your only hope of healing from this event will be through forgiveness, and rising above the power you may still be giving to this event. I recently interviewed Anneke Lucas, a survivor of the horrors of Satanic ritual and sexual abuse within an elite Belgian pedophile network between the ages of 6 and 11. In the interview she is beautifully able to express and exemplify the need for forgiveness and acceptance in a healing process that is anything but a ‘dismissal’ of the experiences she went through. CE will be broadcasting this 4-hour interview in November and it may be one of the best and most elegant explorations into the healing process available for women who have been sexually abused.

In terms of the wrongness of things that Trump does, like openly mock a disabled person (which seems to have been presented out of context by mainstream media, but no matter) it is important to make a distinction between condoning and accepting. By standing firm in your principles you do not condone those acts which go against those principles, and when it is something that is directed at you personally it is important to take actions that appropriately show that you do not condone such behavior. However, to not accept that it happened, (whether it involves Trump openly mocking a woman who has been sexually assaulted, or your brother’s best friend’s attempted rape) by continuing to be angry and upset about it, or feeling that punishment needs to be meted out in order for you to let go of the power it has over you, is self-defeating. When you hold Trump’s words and actions to have emotional power over you, that is what you are doing.

Are you saying that disabled people ought to be made fun of? That Dr. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh’s other accusers — and women like me — are lying? That women should be “negged”? That taking away a woman’s right to care for her own body is a good thing? Because I don’t know how this is light and love on any plane of existence. And if it is, can’t we also say that the cabal is okay, too? War is peace? Hatred is love? Rape is consent?

R: Of course I am not saying that disabled people ought to be made fun of. Having said that, I truly believe our course of action as evolving individuals is to work towards a greater sense of self so that we become immune to insults and slights. In my article ‘Let’s Discard The ‘Right’ To Be Insulted By Free Speech,’ I make the point that being insulted or made fun of does not say anything substantial about us, it only says something about the person saying the insult. Each of us having this clear perception is what will virtually put an end to ‘disrespectful’ speech.

Putting yourself in the same group as Dr. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh’s other accusers is a dangerous leap, as it shows how you may be projecting your story onto other people and then suffering when they are not being believed. Do I think Dr. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh’s other accusers are lying? On the strength of the evidence I’ve seen, yes. Either lying or having had their minds tampered with. Do I think you are lying? No. There is ample evidence and reasons to believe that Kavanaugh’s accusers were brought forward by Deep State forces to created a narrative out of either sketchy or even non-existent memories. There is no reason for you to lie and no reason for me to doubt you.

I assume I don’t need to answer whether I think women should be “negged” or whether taking away a woman’s right to care for her own body is a good thing. As far as us saying the cabal is okay? Yes, at the highest level we must accept that they are here to play a role in our evolution. And having said that, our evolution is now hinging on our capacity to defeat them and remove them from power. And that includes rejecting their Orwellian Doublespeak perception-benders like ‘War is peace,’ ‘Hatred is love,’ ‘Rape is consent’ and use our discernment of the falseness of these slogans to lead us to the truth.

And in the end, then, what are we working toward, if not for true peace and love on our shared home, Earth?

R: True peace and love on Earth is certainly our goal, but in a deeper sense our goal is evolving towards that by choice, rather than having it given to us. Otherwise, we would have stayed in the Garden of Eden and not eaten from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. I wrote a 7-part series on Lucifer that goes into this matter in much greater depth. In our journey back to love and peace, then, the darkness is our ally, and helps us return to unity with greater freedom, and a greater ability to create a future world in our highest shared image.

Thanks for your consideration. I won’t bother you again!

Sincerely,

Sharine

Dear Sharine, thank you for your honest and heart-felt questions and the opportunity to respond to them. The time and space I have had to answer your questions is limited, and it’s difficult to say things in writing that are better served in a one-on-one conversation. I sincerely hope that I have not missed the nuance of some of your points, nor that I appear to be marginalizing the suffering that you have gone through in your life. I believe the healing of women who have suffered abuse at the hands of men will be one of the pre-eminent beacons for our collective evolution.

I wish you all the best of healing, light, and learning in this journey we are sharing together.

Trump Threatens to Call US Military to Close Southern Border as 4,000-strong Migrant Caravan Pushes North

Source: Humans Are Free

The U.S. military will “CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER” with Mexico if officials there don’t soon stop the northward push of a massive migrant caravan, President Trump warned Thursday, amid reports the procession had swelled in size to about 4,000 people.

Trump’s latest threat against the caravan — which originated in Honduras and is bound for the U.S. in a bid to escape pervasive poverty and violence – comes as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo heads to Central America to discuss the issue.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

He added: “In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!”

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!

The caravan, which as of Thursday morning was estimated to contain about 4,000 people, is persistently inching toward the Mexico-Guatemala border, where Mexican officials have sent 500 additional federal police officers ahead of the procession’s arrival, NBC News reported, citing U.S. government documents.

Mexico has said anyone with travel documents and the correct visa will be allowed to pass, and some others in the group can apply for refugee status. But officials also cautioned those who try to cross in an “irregular manner” could be detained and deported, according to the Associated Press.

The AP added that none of the migrants its reporters spoke to were carrying passports, which all but assures a high-stakes showdown with Mexican border officials in the coming days.

One member of the caravan, Henry Tejeda, told the AP he left his wife and four children to join the group due to increasing violence in Honduras, where he said his mother was murdered four years ago and his brother was shot.

“I am carrying the documents to prove I’m not lying,” Tejeda said. “I want to seek political asylum [in the U.S.] and help my family.”

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

The well-traveled Pompeo – fresh off a high-profile Middle East jaunt during which he met with leaders from Saudi Arabia and Turkey regarding the disappearance of activist Jamal Khashoggi – is now scheduled to head to Panama City on Thursday and Mexico City on Friday.

He will meet with the presidents of both countries to “discuss our ongoing security cooperation efforts to disrupt the illicit movement of cash, weapons, drugs across our shared border as well as the issue of stemming illegal immigration and strengthening accountability for corruption and human rights abuses, and bringing members of transnational criminal organizations to justice,” a senior State Department official said.

The migrant caravan will be a “prominent” topic of discussion, too, the official said.

“Certainly it’s an issue that we have viewed as a shared challenge and we continue to work closely with countries in the region to address the underlying economic, security, and governance conditions that have driven illegal immigration to the United States,” the official added.

Since 2015, the U.S. government has sent more than $2.6 billion in foreign assistance to the Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Trump has repeatedly threatened to cut off that aid if the mass migration continues.

The caravan set off last Friday from San Pedro Sula, Honduras’ second-largest city and a place widely considered to be one of most dangerous in the world when judged by homicide rate. At its start, the group consisted of about 160 people, according to an AP estimate.

We Now Know The Government Funded Group Pushing Facebook Censorship

Source: Collective Evolution

IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:Facebook has partnered with The Atlantic Council to ‘stop fake news and propaganda.’ This council is funded by US government agencies and massive corporations who are arms dealers and fund war and terrorism.
  • Reflect On:Given who funds this organization, does it point to the fact that Facebook is truly the one election meddling? Are the mainstream media the only ones to be trusted with election news? Think about who is controlling the narrative here.

On October 11, 2018, 58+ more pages were removed from Facebook causing yet another uproar in the ‘war’ against independent media. My inbox flooded with messages as friends and other page admins began asking me when I thought we were going to be next.

The thought crossed my mind, the day could come, but for now, we will keep building our platform off Facebook, stay grounded in our thoughts and continue producing quality, neutral, conscious media and journalism. We feel Facebook will not have any REAL excuse to come after that, but we know they don’t need an excuse per se.

After all, all of my friend’s pages were just deleted because Facebook felt they were tied to some sort of Russian/US election meddling. It’s interesting when you consider the only people meddling in the election is Facebook. Why else would they delete numerous Facebook pages which often oppose the state-controlled mainstream media?

Beyond the political pressure Facebook seems to be receiving, what actually goes on during this all-out targeted censorship? We may never know exactly, but signs point to a specific group that appears to be heavily involved in the process.

The Group That Guides Facebook Censorship

Enter The Atlantic Council (TAC).

According to a Google Search,

TAC is an American think tank in the field of international affairs. Founded in 1961, it provides a forum for international political, business, and intellectual leaders. It manages ten regional centers and functional programs related to international security and global economic prosperity.

Sounds nice, but then again so do many things that have profit and control driven intentions. Take Monsanto for example, here is an explanation of what they do according to a Monsanto rep.

Monsanto is a global modern agriculture company. We develop products and tools to help farmers around the world grow crops while using energy, water, and land more efficiently. We believe innovation has the potential to bring humanity’s needs in balance with the resources of our planet.

A look into what Monsanto really does might reveal such things as harming and destroying nature en masse. Poisoning the masses and feeding them a genetically experimental food that in many studies shows dangers.

The point is, we have to look a little more closer at corporations.

So who exactly are The Atlantic Council? And are they actually helping Facebook decide who to censor? Good questions. Let’s begin by looking at who funds TAC.

Here are a few donors according to TAC’s website. They include the US and foreign government agencies as well as prominent companies and figures tied to deep state activity.

HSBC Holdings plc
Rockefeller Brothers Fund
Google Inc.
Foreign & Commonwealth Office of the United Kingdom
Lockheed Martin Corporation
The Coca-Cola Company
Chevron
Bahaa Hariri (prominent Lebanese billionaire)
United States Army
United States Chamber of Commerce
United States Marine Corps
United States Navy

Below is a recent tweet from Daniel McAdams, the Executive Director, Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, outlining the funding of The Atlantic Council.

With my 11 years of research into this space, I feel as though this is the type of group responsible for controlling narratives around the world. Whitewashing wars, creating hatred between nations on the public level, and fostering narratives that lead to wars and conflict. After all, it’s funded by arms manufacturers like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing.

In other words, TAC may very well be a propaganda arm for agencies like NATO, the US Government and so forth. This would mean they work to control the narratives that come out of mainstream media to control what the public thinks and discusses. This leads to what the public will ultimately support.

According to Facebook’s newsroom, on May 17th, 2018, Facebook announced its partnership with The Atlantic Council to combat ‘fake news.’

Today, we’re excited to launch a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, which has a stellar reputation looking at innovative solutions to hard problems.

How did the mainstream media view this partnership with a council such as this? A council backed by the very billionaires and corporations independent media organizations prove fund wars, terrorism, and harm/mislead the public?

“US think tank’s tiny lab helps Facebook battle fake social media” – Reuters

Facebook partners with Atlantic Council to improve election security” – The Hill

Facebook Partners With the Atlantic Council to Fight Election Propaganda” – Fortune

Everything points to ‘fake news’ and ‘propaganda.’ The narratives that began the moment Hillary Clinton, the next Deep State chosen president, lost the 2016 election.

As the public, we have to ask the question, who’s watching the watchers? If mainstream media holds the position of never being purveyors of propaganda, then how do we know who’s truly holding them accountable? Well, I guess it’s the Atlantic Group. Helping to create narratives that point to independent dissenting media voices as ‘propaganda.’

Perhaps this is the group behind the ‘Russian/US election fraud narrative.’ Maybe this is the group who is still trying to big up the highly corrupt Clinton’s. Maybe this is a group that is creating the propaganda that enters the mainstream. (A story we’d love to investigate once we can afford to hire our investigative team.)

Does TAC Really Create Propaganda? Yes!

How do we know The Atlantic Council creates propaganda themselves? Let’s look back to when Ben Nimmo, a one-time NATO press officer, and Atlantic Council board member, stated that grammar mistakes were “proof” that journalists or social media users were paid Kremlin trolls.

Ben Nimmo later went on to create a worldwide fake news story, that the mainstream media heavily ran with, calling a retired British citizen a Russian bot. The British citizen and Twitter user Ian56789 later came out on Sky News showing his real face and identity, proving Ben Nimmo was wrong about him being a Russian bot. Of course, the mainstream media didn’t go national with that story, only the fake news version.

WikiLeaks was critical of Nimmo and The Atlantic Council after that bout of propaganda.

The point here is, Facebook choosing to work with this group essentially states Facebook is becoming nothing more than a narrative controller just like the mainstream media. TAC on several occasions has created fake news stories, that went viral, about the very political narratives independent media is pointing out as false yet are being called propaganda. So who is truly creating propaganda?

As a side, this is a council that gave its top global leadership awards to former US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

What Do We Do & The Takeaway

Independent media, specifically conscious media as well, are crucially important voices in our society during a time where Orwell’s 1984 is happening right in front of us. As Facebook, Google and other corporations strip funding from organizations like Collective Evolution, the reach stops, the work slows down and the propaganda voices of the mainstream get louder.

This is a time for us to come together and truly choose which direction we go forward in. We must stop supporting mainstream media outlets and do our best to share and keep independent media alive. CE has lost 80% of its funding since two years ago. We have regained about 10% of that so far through our community support campaign. It’s up to us to see what prevails here. We must become active.

WikiLeaks Releases A Detailed List Of All Amazon Web Services Data Centers Ahead Of DoD Decision

By Aaron Kesel

WikiLeaks has published an alleged “highly confidential” document outlining the addresses and operational details of Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers called Amazon Atlas.

The international whistleblowing organization claims to have published the document as an attempt to shed light on the “largely hidden” locations of cloud-based servers.

“While one of the benefits of the cloud is the potential to increase reliability through geographic distribution of computing resources, cloud infrastructure is remarkably centralized in terms of legal control,” WikiLeaks wrote in a statement. “Until now, this cloud infrastructure controlled by Amazon was largely hidden, with only the general geographic regions of the data centers publicized.”

AWS’ global infrastructure page details Amazon’s geographical locations for its servers in terms of “regions.” For example, U.S. East has six locations in North Virginia and three in Ohio, while Europe has Frankfurt, Ireland, London and Paris —  with three zones, or data centers, in each country.

WikiLeaks notes:

Currently, Amazon is one of the leading contenders for an up to $10 billion contract to build a private cloud for the Department of Defense. Amazon is one of the only companies with the certifications required to host classified data in the cloud. The Defense Department is looking for a single provider and other companies, including Oracle and IBM, have complained that the requirements unfairly favor Amazon. Bids on this contract are due tomorrow.

Prior to the release, WikiLeaks turned the document into a puzzle game called the Quest of Random Clues.

The goal of the WikiLeaks game was to “encourage people to research these data centers in a fun and intriguing way while highlighting related issues such as contracts with the intelligence community, Amazon’s complex corporate structures, and the physicality of the cloud,” according to the organization.

This comes as Amazon has been openly working with law enforcement, which caused an astounding 20 groups of Amazon shareholders to send a letter to CEO Jeff Bezos urging him to stop selling the company’s facial recognition software (Facial Rekogntion) to law enforcement.

This is all further evidence that Amazon, once known for online shopping, is now a key company aiding the police state and helping shape the future of surveillance with biometrics. Additionally, the company has previously taken a $600 million contract with the CIA for cloud computing developed by its subsidiary Amazon Web Services.

If that’s not enough — as Activist Post has previously reported, Amazon is also taking a nose dive straight into retail with Amazon Go, which will utilize cashierless stations and likely biometric security cameras for anti-theft purposes. Exactly like what is being planned by hundreds to thousands of other retailers.

Amazon’s fifth transparency report revealed earlier this year that the company provided more customer data to U.S. law enforcement in the first half of last year than in its history with a shocking 1,936 different requests between January and June 2017, ZDNet reported.

Amazon didn’t state why there was a spike in U.S. government requests during the first half of the year, but for a company that openly has a partnership with the CIA for $600 million worth of cloud servers, with a pending possible $10 billion dollar contract with the Department of Defense, this information should be troubling.

This also comes as Google has been facing months of backlash for its own shady contracts with both U.S. and Chinese governments.

In 2013, the U.S. Intelligence Community spent $8 billion on information technology, according to budget documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
