Government Sponsored Vaccine Propaganda
The Vaccine Wars Part XXIV
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.” -George Orwell, 1984
I hope you're growing as tired of reading that quote as I am.
On Wednesday, March 9, 2022, the headline at the Defender ran,
Science doesn't seek to settle truth with a billion dollars in payments to the press. Science frames experiments in order to learn from the results. But The Science(™) is something else: one of my labels for totalitarianism. Others include anti-racism, anti-fascism, solidarity, and most any community-level value you can imagine. But who could possibly fly the banner to signal a virtue but somebody who exemplifies that virtue?
If you're a little pissed that you can't even use a word that implies a love for humanity without associating with the creeps who publicly co opt every associated word or image, you're not alone.
What is the article above referring to, exactly?
Rescue us from the steamrolling of a few million American businesses? From the unnecessary and torturous masking of kids?
Stop! The drill is that you get to fill in the totalitarian blank. Deception by omission is better strategy than lies that need maintenance, or can be uncovered. Even better is to be able to blame the victim for their own imagination, while steering the biases that drive self-delusion at every turn. This is the aikido of mind control: use your opponent's force and weight against them.
They even tell you that the bill is…just…an "Act".
Okay, that was corny. Let's examine the rest of this daddy joke…
Note the date and sponsor of the bill. Kentucky Representative John Yarmuth is the powerful head of the House Budget Committee. He is a man who has proposed a bill to overturn part of Citizens United vs. FEC, but has raised over $10M for his own campaigns, largely from moneyed interests.
“Corporate money equals influence, not free speech,” Yarmuth said in a news release. “The last thing Congress needs is more corporate candidates who don’t answer to the American people…"
On February 24, 2021, he was confident enough in the ahistorically rushed experimental COVID-19 quasi-vaccines that inexplicably employ the most dangerous part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the spike protein) rather than some essential, but innocuous part, to something something mumble mumble. Lame duck move?
Or, at best, a modest reduction of deaths during the last seven months of the year:
Even this observation of modest mortality efficacy competes with the observation of rising COVID-19 cases and deaths globally after vaccination, the benefit of lower case fatality rates of delta and then omicron keeping mid-to-late 2021 numbers down, and the fact that fewer Americans are now in nursing homes after a lot died off, and so they no longer make up a large portion of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S.

It's really hard to make these vaccines look good unless you believe in controversial trials with key data withheld and redacted.
Back to Rep. Yarmuth. Who is this guy, exactly? Who does number two work for?
Yarmuth is a veteran member of Congress whose 17-year campaign fund-raising reached 8-figures.
Brown-Forman is the Kentucky alcohol giant whose CEO's pay went from $3.7M to $9.1M during two years of pandemic. The alcohol business seems to be doing great during the stressful and depressing pandemic.
Brown-Forman's stock reached an all-time high on March 31, 2021. Almost Family and Kindred are health care companies. That sector is also performing fantastically well, it seems.
Okay, Okay, What's in the Bill?
Money. Lots and lots of money.
$1 billion for the media.
$3 billion for the CDC.
This is how you know the media doesn't have quite so much relative negotiating power? Heck, the same bill provided $6.5 billion to pad the experimental quasi-vaccines’ supply chains, boosting the profit margins for the vaccine manufacturers (and the public health agencies also profiting from the intellectual property).
What's all that money for?
I'll quote the Defender:
In March 2021, Congress appropriated $1 billion U.S. tax dollars for the Secretary of Health and Human Services to spend on activities to “strengthen vaccine confidence in the United States,” with $3 billion set aside for the CDC to fund “support and outreach efforts” in states through community-based organizations and trusted leaders.
HHS’s public education efforts were co-chaired by U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, former National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins, Fauci, Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, and CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky — with Vice President Kamala Harris leading the effort from the White House.
In particular, the news stations were apparently paid not to talk to people who were not positive on subjecting large portions of Americans to an experimental gene therapy product without a gradual ramping and transparent examination of the data. If $4 billion was spent improving confidence in the experimental quasi-vaccines, does that mean we can assume there was a placebo effect tailwind?
Thanks to a FOIA request, we know that many of the largest media corporations were among those paid to promote the quasi-vaccines:
Among those who accepted the government cash were ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and Newsmax.
Major newspapers taking the government’s money included the New York Post, the LA Times and the Washington Post, as well as hundreds of smaller local newspapers and TV stations in practically every state.
Leveraging the Forgetful Masses
“The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.” -Adolf Hitler
Yes, it's always like this, everywhere.
The Behavioral Insights Team looks for ways to nudge behavior on behalf of governments and other clients, including during the pandemic.
The Canadian military conducted a psy-op against Canadians to influence perceptions during the pandemic, and continued the operation after it was ordered to end.
Twitter teams parrot nearly-identical messages through networks in order to normalize belief in information that may not be exactly true (or even truthy).
And for any topic of any importance.
The fact that you spot it often in your field should tip you off to its prevalence everywhere. That's probably at least part of the reason we're funneled into overspecialized educational and occupational paths to begin with.
Since the National Defense Authorization Act legalized propaganda straight from the federal government, and we see so much money being spent on it, should we look for money spent to suppress signals of early treatment medicine?
Would the Fourth Estate Really Sell Out Like This?
Does anyone still honestly think that the legacy media rises to the esteem of an estate?
It's just an upscale whore house, with modernized techniques.
Rearranging images to project false reality has always been its business. Let us not pretend otherwise. Let's stop pretending that the television, radio, and even newspapers broadly, were ever used for much more than to invade the meditative peace of the population. In Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Hunter S. Thompson colorfully expressed a reality that certainly didn't begin yesterday.
The press is a gang of cruel faggots. Journalism is not a profession or a trade. It is a cheap catch-all for fuckoffs and misfits—a false doorway to the backside of life, a filthy piss-ridden little hole nailed off by the building inspector, but just deep enough for a wino to curl up from the sidewalk and masturbate like a chimp in a zoo-cage.
In fact, this year is the four-hundredth anniversary of the Propaganda Fide.
