1967, the CIA's covert use of the National Student
Association to spread counter-messages to communism was

revelation sent shockwaves through the U.S., and as
journalists started to pull at the strings, the CIA's

Journalists discovered the CIA had set up nonprofit
foundations to funnel taxpayer money into philanthropic
foundations that then sent the CIA's "donations" to
organizations that had joined the CIA's payroll to
promote government-sponsored propaganda
These included youth organizations and student groups,
church groups, public radio and news organizations. Sen.
Wayne Morse, D-Ore., slammed the CIA's covert propaganda
activities, arguing the agency had created a
"credibility chasm" within public opinion - a gap that
could not and would not be bridged unless the government
made clear that it would "fill the chasm with the truth"

propaganda activities today than ever before

The video at bottom page
features a 1967 CBS special report titled "In the Pay of the CIA
American Dilemma," 1 hosted by Mike Wallace.
It examines how the
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was secretly paying students,
labor organizations, broadcasting networks and other organizations
to do their bidding.
CBS News correspondents interview several of the people who at the
time had received secret CIA payments, and the implications these
activities have for the American way of life.
Gloria Steinem, for example, who headed the Independent
Research Service, was paid by the CIA to send American students to
attend and represent American values at communist youth festivals
overseas, as was Philip Sherburne, former president of the
National Student Association.
In 1967, the CIA's covert use of the National Student Association to
spread counter-messages to communism was revealed by a college
dropout named Michael Wood. 2

The National Security Act of 1947, signed by President Truman,
As explained by the
Office of the Historian, 4 the Act,
"was a major
reorganization of the foreign policy and military establishments
of the U.S. government."
The CIA was an outgrowth
of the World War II era Office of Strategic Services and several
small post-war intelligence organizations, and as noted by Wallace:
"Since the beginning,
the CIA has suffered a personality split, because in addition to
intelligence, the Security Act of 1947 orders the CIA to,
functions and duties as directed by the President and his
National Security Council.'
That phrase has
become a sort of blank check, authorizing CIA excursions into
everything from simple propaganda to the overthrow of unfriendly
Wallace goes on to
explain how the CIA ended up with fingers in so many pies.
First, it set up several
nondescript nonprofit foundations, the function of which were to
funnel taxpayer money from the CIA to other, real foundations
involved in real-world philanthropy.
However, in return for CIA funds, these foundations "agreed to
become conduits for central intelligence," and funneled the exact
dollar amounts received on to other organizations that, in the
1940s, '50s and '60s, joined the CIA's payroll to promote

Eugene McCarthy, was also critical of the CIA's use of students
and church groups to manipulate public opinion.
He also said,
he felt there was
"empire building" going on within the CIA - a statement that
rings all the more true today.
Sen. John Stennis,
member of the CIA Watchdog Subcommittee, defended the CIA's actions,
reminding the CBS audience about the climate in which the agency was
In 1954, the U.S.
Congress passed a bill outlawing communism, and the CIA was still
basically 'protecting' American liberty and democracy.
Former CIA director Allen Dulles also defended the agency's

presented by critics was that by using covert propaganda techniques,
the U.S. government was using the same strategies as the enemy,
thereby undermining the idea of America being a country dedicated to
free speech and the diversity of ideas.
At the end of the day, the overarching message of the CBS News
report was that,
the CIA needed to
change with changing times, clean up its act and get out of the
covert propaganda business, as its interventions were harming
the American image of being a free and open country...
Operation Mockingbird Is Alive and Well
the CIA was never reined in, and its propaganda
activities have only expanded and become more sophisticated over
The 1976 Church
exposed how the CIA had corrupted the media by
paying journalists to promote the agency's narratives.
The program, called
Operation Mockingbird, was
officially dismantled, but while the operational name may have been
retired, there's plenty of evidence to suggest the CIA never
discontinued its media influence. 5
In fact, we have evidence the CIA is
controlling mainstream media to
this day, and it's doing so with unprecedented efficiency, as it can
now push its narratives out through the three global news agencies,
which are responsible for crafting and curating most of the news
The only thing that has changed, really, is the CIA's narrative.
Whereas in the past it was dedicated to undermining communism,
today, the CIA is,
a disinformation fountainhead for an unelected
Deep State that is hell-bent on implementing a technocratic,
One World Government, the tyranny of which makes
communism pale in comparison.
The CIA is now neck-deep in a global psyop to ensure the successful

They're all pushing the same

That's why we're
seeing the same narratives playing all over the world, including
Orwellian argument that we must censor to protect democracy.

their weapon of choice - information - against their own citizens.
And, while the organizations doing the CIA's dirty work may have
changed, the basic organizational structure is the same as it was in
Taxpayer money gets funneled through various federal
departments and agencies into the hands of nongovernmental agencies
that carry out censorship activities as directed.
As recently reported by
investigative journalists Alex Gutentag and Michael Shellenberger:
"The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the
Center for Countering Digital
Hate (CCDH), and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) are
nongovernmental organizations, their leaders say.
When they demand more censorship of online hate speech, as they are
currently doing of X, formerly Twitter, those NGOs are doing it as
free citizens and not, say, as government agents.
But the fact of the matter is that the US and other Western
governments fund ISD, the UK government indirectly funds CCDH, and,
for at least 40 years, ADL spied on its enemies and shared
intelligence with the US, Israel and other governments.
The reason all of this matters is that ADL's advertiser boycott
against X may be an effort by governments to regain the ability to
censor users on X that they had under Twitter before Musk's takeover
Internal Twitter and Facebook messages show that representatives of
the US government, including the White House, FBI, Department of
Homeland Security (DHS), as well as the UK government, successfully
Twitter censorship of their users over the
last several years."
What we have now is government censorship by proxy, a deeply
anti-American activity that has become standard practice, not just
by intelligence and national security agencies but federal agencies
of all stripes, including our public health agencies.

Everything else will be censored...
to Ban All Types of Medical 'Misinformation'
YouTube, for example, which censored medical information that went
against CDC guidance during
the COVID 'pandemic', recently announced
it is committed to eliminating virtually all medical
"misinformation" that contradicts
the WHO: 10
"While specific medical guidance can change over time as we learn
more, our goal is to ensure that when it comes to areas of
well-studied scientific consensus, YouTube is not a platform for
distributing information that could harm people.
Moving forward, YouTube will streamline dozens of our existing
medical misinformation guidelines to fall under three categories:
These policies will apply to specific health conditions, treatments,
and substances where content contradicts local health authorities or
the World Health Organization (WHO)...
Here's what the framework
will look like:
We will remove content that contradicts
health authority guidance on the prevention and transmission
of specific health conditions, and on the safety and
efficacy of approved vaccines.
For example, this encompasses
content that promotes a 'harmful' substance for disease
We will remove content that contradicts
health authority guidance on treatments for specific health
Examples include content that encourages
unproven remedies in place of seeking medical attention for
specific conditions, like promoting cesium chloride as a
treatment for cancer.
We will remove content that disputes the
existence of specific health conditions.
This covers content
people have died from COVID-19 ...
In applying our updated
cancer treatment 'misinformation' fits the framework - the
public health risk is high as cancer is one of the leading causes of
death worldwide, there is stable consensus about safe cancer
treatments... and it's a topic that's prone to misinformation.
Starting today and ramping up in the coming weeks, we will begin
removing content that promotes cancer treatments proven to be
harmful or ineffective, or content that discourages viewers from
seeking professional medical treatment."
War on Misinformation
The United Nations is
also deeply engaged in fighting the "'infodemic' of misinformation,"
11 and has enlisted a cadre of "rapid response" fact
checkers to counter undesirable views, wherever they appear.
The UN his also partnered with private businesses,
telecommunications companies, civil society groups, media and
individual journalists to combat misinformation.
The UN secretary-general
António Guterres has even gone on record
"hate speech" is a "weapon of war" that must be brought under
control to achieve the UN's 'peacekeeping' aims...
In July 2022, he made
the following remarks to the Security Council, clearly demonstrating
that the UN views censorship as a necessity for world peace: 12
"The United Nations must play a more deliberate role as an
information actor in conflict environments.
We must be seen as a
trusted source of information by providing engaging, factual
content, facilitating inclusive dialogue, demanding the removal of
harmful speech, calling leaders to account and promoting the voices
of peace and unity."
Just what is "harmful speech"?
Why, anything that counters
globalist narrative - "the voices of unity" - of course...!
UN leadership is calling dissent (i.e., "hate
speech") "a weapon of war," when in reality, censorship is the
This kind of rhetoric alone tells you that we are in fact at war,
and the public has been declared the enemy of the globalist cabal,
the members of which have infiltrated all the key national agencies
and international organizations now being used to browbeat us into
compliance with a slave agenda...
In the video above, under-secretary-general for the UN's global
communications talks about how,
"social media is being weaponized to
provoke the worst in human nature" (there's that war lingo again),
and how the UN is "pushing Big Tech" to "bring balance to our
In other words,
Big Tech is being pushed to give the technocrats a
battlefield edge by eliminating the "weapons" of everyday people
(who greatly outnumber them...), namely their voices...
We Being Censored?
While globalists and technocrats would have you believe that
censorship is all about protecting people by making sure everything
they see is accurate and truthful, the exact opposite is actually
Deep State players (whether they recognize themselves
as belonging to that exclusive club or not) are the ones spreading
false information to lull you into compliance with an agenda that is
so utterly horrifying that no sane, rational person would ever go
along with it.
I'm talking about,
These and several other terms all refer to one
comprehensive, worldwide plot to create,

the rule of a centralized world government run by unelected
Everything we've seen and experienced over the last three years are
part of that agenda, including the global push for
It's no surprise then, to find out that 14 of the 17

As noted in the
August 2021 issue of Globalization and Health: 13
"Immunization directly impacts health (SDG3) and brings a
contribution to 14 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),
Therefore, immunization is recognized to play a central role in
reaching the SDGs, especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)."
Nothing is happening by accident.
It's all part of a movement toward
a global totalitarianism centered on the control and suppression of
