    I use predictive programming on people. I discovered that this technique can be used on friends and family. If I tell someone about WT7, then the chances of them being more open to it the next time they here about it are more likely.
    I try not to pester people to the point of them getting frustrated but I will always push; little by little. That is exactly how we got here; Fabian-style.
    I also decided that living as if I am in the Matrix trilogy, and having to lie about most things i know just to fit in is no life at all. I’d rather be alone. At least now I know who is open for learning truths and who is worth spending time with. I now take the insult of being dubbed a ‘conspiracy theorist’ as a compliment. If I am called it, which happens daily, I give great thanks for the compliment and explain that it means that i think outside the box and am not afraid to have an opinion outside the official narrative.

    • Boudicca says:

      When someone tells me “That sounds like a conspiracy theory.”, I say, “No! You don’t understand. I am the ultimate conspiracy theorist”. Then I go on to explain the real meaning of the term which is basically one’s ability to think outside the box.. When it’s all done I have surreptitiously turned their Orwellian thought tyranny into an underhanded insult at them under the guise of insulting myself. After that, folks seem to tolerate me saying whatever I know and they no longer try to keep me in their authoritative box.

    This just in-
    100% of people polled believe that Foley artists should get more recognition.

    What I’m not telling you is that the only people polled were myself and 99 Foley artists.

    Maybe something else I’m not telling you is that there wasn’t really a poll. I just said there was.

    • sheeple359 says:

      hey, cooly,

      actually you did make the pool, because now it is in a comment section and there is date, time and website I can refer to.

      Pool made by one of the most recognized artists done at 10/03/2019 at 2:39 am shows that: 100% of people believe Foley artists should get more recognition.

      One fancy title, then some yada,yada,yada words before and after the previous sentence. Some fake view counter on the article and boom in no time people believe it. Because the article is read 500k times, it’s gotta be legit.

      Now lets hope that this article once read nobody will follow the link I refer to in the article. But of course I could bury it under a lot of flashing adds and some celebrity mating habits articles.

      cheers

    I’m afraid you’ve fallen for some propaganda yourself, James. Grease, or fat, and calorie consumption is not what causes obesity. Read Good Calories, Bad Calories to learn the history of this misdirection. It is more than the environment that the NWO wants us to not eat beef. Keep up the good work.

    • wylie1 says:

      Thank you for reminding me that some doctors eat fatty beef exclusively. One in particular, Dr. Ken Berry, explains in his videos how it has improved his health greatly but says its not for everyone. Surprisingly candid, interesting fellow who wrote the book: Lies My Doctor Told Me

      James’ sort of repeating propaganda had put that narrative, grease and therefor fat is bad, back into my head to some degree. But are we sure what James was referring to? Maybe he had French Fries in mind, which are quite bad for you. Or deep fried breaded chicken nuggets. Or some sort of greasy Japanese fast food, greasy noodles? Regardless, fast food and most store bought beef is GMO feedlot fed; not good.

      • harris says:

        I haven’t read any Dr Berry. Just to clarify, what kind of fatty beef is it? Generally, non-lean beef is the product of feeding cattle large amounts of grain in the last few weeks before slaughter. This causes the marbling that people are told to desire. It also creates a very sick animal that has to be kept alive with drugs, because ruminants cannot live on grain.

        This also produces the methane that the climate lobby use to vilify cattle. Cattle is not the problem, large and industrial farms are.

        It is surprisingly hard to get exclusively grass-fed beef (or dairy), as most farms supplement the diet with grain or GMO soy, and don’t declare it – see Kerrygold butter lawsuit: Kerrygold declared to be butter from grass fed cows, but had to admit that this is not 100% true. Unsurprisingly, the judge sided with the corporation, because kerrygold didn’t state “100% grass fed” – though I think that is deceptive and a typical trick on customers.

        I am a small farmer working to bring back some autonomy to our lives by working with local people, so I feed them good quality produce and they know exactly how well their animals are treated and how pesticide-free vegetables are grown. Try to find someone near you and visit their farm – get to know them

        • HomeRemedySupply says:

          Grass Fed Animals
          I have often thought about what our ancestors ate, before the days of grain feedlots.
          In a way, it is really common sense that the healthy oils (lipids) and other nutrients from green plants would go up the food chain and end up in milk and beef.

          We all know that Omega 3 oils are important for humans.

          Grass Fed beef has twice the Omega 3 as conventional beef.

        • wylie1 says:

          Don’t recall Dr. Berry ever going into where he gets his beef. However, I’m well aware of the feedlot produced wrong kind of fat problem prevalent in the usa; along with all the other facts you presented. Wish everyone else knew those things too!

          If only people would take heed to good advice. If you are not growing your own food, go direct to a farmer that you have talked with and observed.

          In the Kerrygold grass fat butter case, clearly the judge was a former weasel attorney, as are most I have observed. By the same argument there was nothing stating that it was less than 100% grass fat butter either. If something isn’t 100% organic, is it organic? No. If something isn’t 100% grass fat then it should never have had a grass fat label. The usa court system was broken in favor of all things corporate (corporatism not capitalism) long before most of us were born.

          This world has a few too many two-legged rats. Buyer beware regardless of any label. Grow your own if you possibly can.

    • completelycookie says:

      I agree with you suasn15. Low fat, high carb increases your risk of cancer and senility and DEATH. It’s all about sugar and how sugar kills. The brain is made up of cholesterol and water. Why people want to reduce their cholesterol with Statins, I don’t know, but I have known and been related to seven people who were prescribed them and they all died within seven years. My closest friend, within two. High fat is much healthier, hence the cry for veganism in the coming extinction rebellion – a Rockefeller agenda. Check out Keto.

      • weilunion says:

        As I read comments I am struck with the off the wall comments that have NOTHING to do with Jame’s report.

        The report is how fallacies, such as polling,can affect ones’ ability to think critically.

        Profiting from close to seventy years, I m coming to the conclusion that people not only can’t think critically, they don’t want to.

        Bubbled off into their little vessels of thought, Jame’s report rolls over them like water off a duck’s back.

        • pearl says:

          Ah well, I’m one of the worst offenders then. Sorry ’bout that. James’ reports never roll off my back, though I’m more a ruminator myself.

          But contrary to a more disciplined forum, the laid-back atmosphere here is one of the most creative, diverse, thought-provoking, stimulating and lively I’ve come across. Since people think all kinds of ways, I regard most tangents as expanding the topic rather than suffocating it. Other times, it can be totally off-topic in fun, conflict or merely informational, but I’ve never heard James complain, bless him.

          • manbearpig says:

            Hey Miss Pearl!

            Thought of you when I saw this:

            https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/10/03/monarch-migration-2019/

            I’m so sorry for the pests preventing pupation where you are. Apparently many thriving Monarchs in the north-east except for Kent Island where anti-mosquito spraying may’ve decimated them.

            Funny how there’re all these transgenic mosquitos around and all this spraying at the same time. In France too, lots of anti-mosquito spraying which has driven some bird species elsewhere…to my disappointment this past summer…

            • pearl says:

              Tragic about the anti-mosquito spraying. That’s incredibly infuriating. But what a great article! I learned a few things, such as not all monarchs migrate and some even overwintered in Houston. I wonder if that characteristic is what is causing an uproar by some hobbyists against nurseries selling “Tropical Milkweed”. My mother sent me an article from her neighborhood blog calling on residents to “chop down their milkweed or else the butterflies won’t migrate!”. Never even heard of that concern until this past spring when a nursery employee told me about her being chewed out by a customer for selling it, thereby causing monarchs to ignore their instincts. But as I see it, the native milkweed (which grows all around during both migrations) doesn’t die back until a hard freeze, so how’s that any different than tropical milkweed? Doesn’t make sense to me. Anyway, regarding my own patch of green, I was beginning to worry since I’ve not seen one single monarch yet! But when I consulted the very same website he linked to (Journey North – an excellent website for all kinds of info), I was relieved to find the sighting map a delightful cascade of shades of orange. No more worries; they’ll pass through any day now. Meanwhile, we’ve been wowed by the daily numbers of tiger swallowtails and giant swallowtails visiting my zinnias the last several weeks.

              Thanks again, mbp! I shall forward it to my mom!

          • cooly says:

            pearl-

            Absolutely. Well said. I’m sure most people in this forum feel the same way. And those who don’t, well they have other options. The variety and randomness and tangents of posts here make it even more interesting.

            And it is my exquisite pleasure to be wildly off-topic again here.

            Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of something that helped advance human civilization and culture. On October 5, 1969, the first episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus was broadcast.

            • pearl says:

              That’s right! So glad you mentioned it. The other day you suggested checking out an interesting debate with John Cleese (did I get that right?). I was intrigued, but true to self got distracted and forgot all about it ’til now. So thanks for stepping out of bounds again!

              • cooly says:

                pearl-

                Yea, I did mention that debate. If you want to watch it I’ll save you the trouble of thread searching for my post:

                Just search Life Of Brian debate and it should just pop right up. There are clip videos of it but you should really watch the whole program. Real easy to find.

                ,

              • pearl says:

                Good deal. Something to look forward to first thing tomorrow morning. Thanks!

              • pearl says:

                Just finished watching it, cooly. I wish it was longer. Such an interesting discussion. Cleese, having made so many excellent points, didn’t get to speak nearly enough, overrun by the modern day gnostic pharisees.

                I remember watching that film in the early 90s when I was a brand new believer and cringing horribly, believing Christ was being mocked. But my, how my perspective has changed given the 25 years of immersion in protestant doctrine and my subsequent disgusted departure from same. The two clips they showed from “Life of Brian” I totally got this time around and found quite hilarious; it’s not about Christ, but rather mocking how quick people are to abandon their own autonomy, intellect, responsibility and attach themselves to any voice in the wilderness. And Muggeridge’s hero worship of Mother Teresa and St. Augustine! Ha! Don’t get me started!! White-washed tombs full of dead men’s bones, each one of them. [end of rant]

  4. matt.mewis says:

    That is what has happened with brexit for the last 3 and a half years in the uk. We’ve had polls, protests, reports, experts and fear based reporting. A great deal of properganda.

    So much so that people who want to remain in the EU feel morally superior while the majority who want to leave keep it to them selves as the polls and msm opinion make them look like social and political parias.

    Although a silver lining is the complete breakdown of trust in government as people wake up and see their true colours.

    Very insightful, thanks James.

  5. bigred says:

    The ‘Social Embarrassment’, tactic is now being used by my Gas Co, and Electric supplier! They now send Monthly graphs that compare MY usage to my Neighbors! Soon to come, the Water Dept and Medical Insurance will compare me to my Neighbors, I’m sure!

    • mkey says:

      Just for fun, compare your graph with your neighbors graphs, I have a mighty feeling they are lying through their teeth.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      My brother out in Los Angeles was telling me about that tactic on his utilities.
      He also got a notice that his water usage was higher than his neighbors.

    • John says:

      They’re doing this in France too. I’ve always wondered, ever since they’ve been sending me these graphs, how is it possible that my neighbours (those with the same occupants and with the same square meters as me) consume less electricity than me when we have knowingly less commodities than them. It all makes sense now!!

    • Octium says:

      Well I’d certainly be ashamed if a got a letter from a water utility telling me that I was consuming more water than my neighbors. After all it would mean I’d be consuming more fluoride than them, and they are pretty stupid people to start with!

  6. flammable says:

    There is this popular game show called Family Feud that uses polls to determine the correct answers. So you may know the correct answers but be wrong because the majority of the poll thinks differently.

    It is funny how viewers will watch Family Feud and complain that the polling is flawed since most people will get the answers wrong.
    Yet the same people will blindly agree to a poll the news says they should listen to.

    I guess when people realize they are losing and giving their power away to an unknown minority now they want to criticize polls.

  7. Thomas says:

    Yes people ARE evolving to understand that official news is B.S. and the alternative news communities have grown tremendously. The problem truth movements have is much less about converting more people to understand the truth, and much more about getting the people who already understand to actually start engaging in serious activism consistently.

    People are just watching videos online, posting on social media a little bit, making a few donations to organizations and supporting a few channels, then maybe emailing a political representative a few times a year and then calling it a day. This is a good start but unless people expand beyond this into calling and writing PAPER letters to their Reps, protesting IN PERSON, speaking to their city council meetings IN PERSON, and organizing political action groups in their communities and similar serious activism initiatives we aren’t going to go where we need to go…

    I just published an article/action-step campaign around the 9/11 truth and surveillance abuse topics that calls on activists to engage in 4 action-steps centered around the 9/11 annv., exposing the reality of surveillance abuse crimes, rallying our Reps to let the Patriot Act expire in 2019, and a letter campaign to the Federal Judge who just ruled the so-called terrorist watchlist is unconstitutional.

    I’m calling the campaign: “The 45 Days After 9/11 Campaign for 9/11 and Surveillance Abuse Justice” See: https://www.minds.com/thoughtjustice/blog/september-11th-patriot-act-surveillance-action-steps-1024041326495088640

    • wylie1 says:

      Far too many politicians have the attitude: If the people don’t care enough about protecting themselves on this item, then why should I?
      Any honest rep will tell you its a numbers game. Until a large enough contingent of their constituency opposes what is being proposed, they will go with their NWO, corporate, socialist, or expanding govt flow.

      I have personally found that getting people to lift a finger to protect themselves and stop something stupid is like asking them to cut off their beer hand. I am more ticked at the lazy do nothings than the weasels who unsurprisingly do what weasels do.

      • generalbottlewasher says:

        Thomas that is a great idea!

        • wylie1 says:

          If you do try it, please find hundreds of others (or more) to join you in doing so or you will be severely disappointed. That typically involves starting or joining some sort of group that has a focus on a particular issue/s. Such folks may find it necessary to run a door to door or mailer campaign to vote out existing officeholders, in order to remove the corruption; in order have less disappointing results.

          Since the populace seems not yet ready for freedom from govt, it seems much wiser for most all of the people to gather together an hour a month (dividing into their areas of expertise or interest), to screen for candidates to run for all offices, from all parties, in numbers, who sign a contract. When you can by-pass the failed political party system and get most everyone to participate in finding decent honorable people to run for office … someone is going to know whoever is proposed, whether they are crooks or honorable. That greatly reduces nominating and voting in the dark.

      • weilunion says:

        I am in Ecuador now and martial law has been called by President Lenin Moreno over transport strikes that have now crippled the nation.

        Fuel subsidies are being lifted, the price of fuel will double, driving working families and the economy into screaming mode.

        All of this is just the beginning of the IMF imposed austerity compelled by the IMF loaning, yes loaning, Ecuador 4.6 billion.

        Here, polls show about 10 percent or less support for the current president. Yet these polls are having no affect on the ruling class. They simply assure that they are not published.

        I am amazed at what are called ‘advanced countries’and how slack jawed and lax their people are when faced with crisis, let alone polls.

        Groupthink is only one fallacy employed on people —- withholding evidence is one of many others.

  8. RobinHood77 says:

    I noticed this tactic while reading Wikipedia’s article on Dr Tim Ball. Excerpt: ”Ball has worked with Friends of Science and Natural Resources Stewardship Project, which oppose the consensus scientific opinion of significant anthropogenic global warming,[5] and is a former research fellow at the Frontier Centre for Public Policy.[6][7][8] Ball also rejects the consensus scientific opinion on climate change, stating that “CO2 is not a greenhouse gas that raises global temperature.”[9]”

    Notice that they mentioned twice that Dr Ball both ”rejects” and ”opposes” the CONSENSUS scientific opinion.

    What they do not mention is that science is NOT an opinion. 100 experiments can give the impression that a theory is correct but it takes only one experiment to prove it wrong. James has expounded upon this subject: https://www.corbettreport.com/?s=falsifiability

    Climate change is about the environment, not the economy …… yeah right..

    Managing the Financial Risks of Climate Change

    Climate change is a concern for financial regulators: Greenhouse gas emissions, global warming and climate change are not only existential issues for those concerned with the future of humanity, they are also immediate concerns for financial regulators. Climate change poses a ubiquitous risk to financial bottom lines, even for corporations that do not have any direct exposure to ESG issues. The good news is that some key financial regulators and supervisors across the world are aware of these risks and are acting upon it.

  11. Nusuth says:

    The bureau of land management and Fish and wildlife poison tens of thousands of animals every year in the name of protecting Sheep and cattle stocks. Years past a poison directly linked to Monsanto(Sodium fluoroacetate, AKA 1080) was used, it caused chain die offs. An animal would eat a poisoned bait another would eat that first poisoned animal and onward down the chain. These modern civilized times we use Cyanide to poison 20,000 coyotes a year. All documented in Jack Olsen’s book “Slaughter the Animals, Poison the Earth.” Reasons like this James, are why I choose not to eat meat. Some times when you talk about vegetarianism, I feel like you are calling everyone who chooses not to eat meat a chump. I don’t feel like you mean to talk down to us veggie eaters, I was just letting you know how I feel.

    • Nusuth says:

      I used the word “Feel” too many times in those last sentences, I regret my choices.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      There are so many fluoride-type poisons. That 1080 is nasty stuff, and one can see some horrific YouTube videos regarding it.
      Non-organic American raisins are loaded with fluoride pesticide, which is probably why dogs die from eating raisins. (See Melissa Gallico’s article https://medium.com/@MelissaGallico/how-to-keep-your-dentist-from-killing-your-labrador-retriever-and-other-pets-9777e3bdab68 )

      I think the real culprits for insanities like this poisoning of the food chain are the technocrats and corporate influences.

      I eat meat, but I try to get organic grass fed beef. However, I also load up on my organic greens.

      I like it when folks express their opinion and perspective.
      Thanks Nusuth.
      Power to you.

      • Nusuth says:

        A lot of what I was talking about is specific to grass fed animals the BLM lets the sheep and cattlemen graze on public lands, then they complain to fish and wildlife that coyotes killed their animals so they can get insurance money. BLM and fish/game respond by putting poison everywhere. There is an interesting quote in Jack Olsens book about how in the midwest a sheep never dies of natural causes and sheep are known to just fall over and die.

        • wylie1 says:

          What about roving bands of coyotes devouring baby deer on the endangered species list? not just sheep and calves. I’m not in favor of poison but the coyotes multiply quick enough with few natural predators, which would go for the more meaty sheep and cattle anyway. Bounties are the way to go. The sheep and cattlemen should be paying for that. If you don’t mind smacking a cockroach … is killing a coyote that much different? If you are in favor of protecting a cockroach infestation, then I would understand your view on the coyotes.

          • Nusuth says:

            Naturally cockroaches are decomposes they are important to an eco-system. I am actually a big fan of all soil biology. I have rehabbed HUD houses so I have killed thousands of roaches in a urban setting. I am not against taking life entirely, but promoting shit industry that creates deserts, and poisons the land, has wolves shot from helicopters, I do not support. I know there are problems with plant farms but those are solvable. the environmental problems with raising meat are less likely solved. Not to say people shouldn’t eat meat. There are so many problems with food production right now, and needs to be addressed. my question for you is where should the nature stop and (in)humanity begin? increasingly we are finding all lifeforms have benefits, even the mosquito which people hate so much, the male mosquito is a pollinator.

            • wylie1 says:

              So its okay for you to kill cockroach infestations but Not okay for sheep or cattle rancher to kill coyote infestation? Where do all the poisons end up that homeowners and landscape caretakers use? So its okay to poison urban land have it migrate into waterways and wells but those evil farmers and ranchers, its all them?

              Here is a real problem: The cities keep expanding their concrete desert and the wildlife get more concentrated over to the sheep and cattle ranches. I grew up in an area with numerous cattle, it is not a desert, more the opposite.

              So then the urban housing industry (especially HUD) is not a corrupt shit industry? …which is also poisoning the land, creating an ever expanding wildlife habitat destruction zone? Get rid of cities and the wild animals will have room to travel where they want via the fields between the homes, like they do in the rural areas.

              The idea of concentrated cities to protect the wildlife habitat is laughable at best.

              It is easy to point fingers at something you don’t like to distract yourself and others to what you may be doing.

              Own any shoes having leather? Use any leather gloves in your housing work? Any wool in your clothes? If so, then you support sheep and cattle business and should be able to advise them how to improve their practices if you don’t like how they are doing it now. I gave my reco. Where’s yours?

              Let me know what you would do if you had a sheep or cattle ranch and had coyotes and wolves and other predators eating your food as well as the money to raise your kids; regardless of whether you eat meat or not. Step into their shoes and see how things look.

              Conclusions:
              1: If you put too many animals in one place they may turn it to dirt. If you put too many humans in one place they may turn it to concrete and asphalt, polluting, poison oozing blemish on the earth. Cities could be operated MUCH cleaner, why aren’t they? That is a far bigger problem polluting the world than a few ranchers, what made you then focus on the ranchers, rather than where you live? I suspect some propaganda was involved. Professors and the media are all about limiting / cherry picking what they tell you and what they don’t.
              2: It is much easier to point fingers than look in the mirror.

              • wylie1 says:

                Not to say that pointing fingers isn’t necessary at times, its just much easier.

                I know nut farmers who set out poison for squirrels. Like you, I didn’t like the idea of poisons and all the after effects. He said that he tried shooting them but they are so fast they dodge the bullets. So then just let them eat all your nuts?

                It would seem that if poisons are going to be used for insect or animal killing, such poisons should be restricted to a type that quickly breaks down to inert or soil beneficial products, if at all possible.

                Then there is the Monsanto mentality of lying about your poison completely breaking down.

                There is always room for improvement. Working on that improvement is the solution but much more difficult than pointing fingers.

    The outcome of the poll is determined by the desired goal of the person or organization that pays for it. Same with “science”.
    If the outcome needs to be white, they get white, if it needs to be black, they get black. Any colour in between or a rainbow pattern, sure, no problem (for an extra fee). The numbers and processes are manipulated, fudged, obfuscated, etc to provide the desired result.
    It always makes me laugh how they often call a poll “scientific”. That’s about the worst thing they could have said, telling me not to believe the outcome.

    Science & Technology is the new global religion.

    Well? Are not polls statistics as poopooed by Samuel Clements as lies, damn lies.?
    Funny thing happened on the way to a university degree. A conspiratorial group took surveys for a week on spending a lot of the student associations money on a rock and roll show in 1979. As an speculative $ 68,000.oo venture it had no chance. However polls showed it was wanted 4 to 1 in a student body of 3500. So we had a great party and lost $ 18,000.oo and were piriras for the next 2 years. I know the power of polls. Smh!!!
    Why can’t you sell that kind a poop to banks instead of stupid government boobies like the student senate or say state guv’ment?

    My brother Tom (now a Canadian citizen) still believes the Warren Commission’s Story about the 1963 Coop that included the assassination of JFK. This is despite the fact that the assassination of JFK was concluded to be a Conspiracy by a second Congressional investigation done in the late 1970’s. The second Congressional investigation was forced to close the books because nearly every person they called to Testify was killed before they could do so. In other words, the Criminals who were responsible for planning the Coop were above the law and in control of the federal government, then and now.
    Some of those that benefited the most were the owners of the Federal Reserve including the Rothschild’s, J.P. Morgan, and the Rockefeller’s. (As a result of the Coop Fiat Federal Reserve Notes replaced Silver backed U.S. Dollars, and the bankers could create unlimited amounts of money.)
    AIPAC was a political group of Zionists that the Kennedy’s were in the process of requiring to register as a foreign lobby group. They were buying off politicians and skewing U.S. policies prior to JFK and continued to gain even more power after the Coop.
    The Events of 9/11/01 were the result of;
    1) Bankers wishing to fulfill “The New American Century” goals to make their Federal Reserve Notes stronger.
    2)Bush/Skull and Bones wishing to cover-up their involvement in the Savings and Loans scandals (the need to destroy records at the Pentagon and WTC #7)
    3)The State of Israel wishing to expand and have the U.S. military do the fighting for them. (Israel has made claim to Oil rich lands in Syria and the U.S. President has supported the stealing of this land)
    End the Fed!
    End the Empire!
    Bring the troops home, and create a Union of States that actually works for the people, eh!

    (68F-32)/1.8=20celcius. The shaming of people naturally being different, requiring different amounts of heat (or anything else), should be shameful, therefore illegal, with severe penalties and fines. The duct tape police should be sent post-haste to silence the offenders and be equipped with monetary extractors.

    New York City may fine individuals up to $250,000 if they use the term “illegal alien” in a derogatory way. So much for freedom of speech.

    I think James may have mentioned? that the incremental progression towards it being illegal to say anything against govt is well under way.

    Maybe we can use “poll” results to combat govt abuse. 7 out of 9(the German version) of those polled believe govt should be heavily fined, resulting in tax reductions for any and all encroachments upon the natural rights of any and all people.

    3 out of 9 illegal aliens polled said they didn’t care if the term illegal alien was used in a derogatory way because they don’t understand the language that well and asked “what is that, an illegal alien is? Also, what is derogatory means? And why I care? Just here for free stuff, don’t care what anyone says.”

    Now that I finally got around to watching the second half of this #Propaganda Watch and saw that you talked about the latest YouGov survey commissioned by AE911Truth, James, I remembered that in 2016, when the previous poll on WTC Building 7 was conducted, AE’s director of strategy, Ted Walter, was interviewed about the specific questions YouGov asked. That interview can be found here: https://www.ae911truth.org/news/256-news-media-events-yougov-poll-2016

    Personally, I found the demographics breakdown one of the most interesting aspects of the 2016 survey. I’m curious to know how the demographics of the respondents compares in the latest survey. Maybe someone can persuade Ted Walter to type up an identical Q&A, substituting the 2016 results with the 2019 poll data.

    September 23/24, 2019 – Global News
    4 in 10 Canadians say they won’t get the flu shot this year: poll
    https://globalnews.ca/news/5938984/canadians-no-flu-shot/

    EXCERPTS
    We’ve come a long way when it comes to awareness around annual flu shots, but a new poll suggests almost 40 per cent of Canadians don’t plan on getting the shot this year.

    According to the recent poll by B.C.-based retailer London Drugs, 37 per cent of Canadians said they won’t get vaccinated this year, due to confusion that still exists around the flu vaccine.

    “Unfortunately, many Canadians might not get a flu shot this year due to misconceptions about the benefits of receiving a flu shot and concerns about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines,” London Drugs pharmacist Gianni Del Negro said in a statement…

    …“The anti-vaxx movement disseminates a lot of false information about vaccines,” he said. “They often quote unreliable and unverified scientific studies to back up their claims.”

    And with social media, it gets harder for the average Canadian to figure out which site or information is truthful and which is misleading, he said…

    …“You can read a website that looks and feels like Health Canada or a public health agency website that has information that is not correct,” he (Pharmacist Jordan Clark of Shoppers Drug Mart in Ottawa) told Global News…

    …The poll also found 29 per cent of Canadians believed healthy people don’t need the flu shot, 20 per cent believed the flu shot can cause negative side effects and 16 per cent believed they didn’t need it, “because they are not around many people or vulnerable people.”…

      New poll: Vaccine rule widely supported by California voters
      https://news.berkeley.edu/story_jump/new-poll-vaccine-requirement-widely-supported-by-california-voters/

      EXCERPTS
      Just 16% of voters are opposed to a new California law requiring parents vaccinate their children, according to a new poll from UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies.

      The poll, conducted online from Sept. 13 to 18, found support for the bill from the vast majority of Californians: rich or poor, conservative or liberal, educated or not. Roughly 83% of all voters said they favored the law, 61% said they favored it strongly.

      “Support is broad-based with large majorities across all major subgroups of the state’s registered voter population in favor,” said Mark DiCamillo, head of the Berkeley IGS Poll. “Liberals display the highest levels of support, with greater than nine in 10 in favor.”…

      …The poll surveyed 4,527 registered voters in both English and Spanish. The poll had a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

        “It is much less expensive to work this way,” DiCamillo says. “You don’t need to employ interviewers. You can send out an email at minimal expense, and if you do it right, you can produce a good random sample.”

        There are limitations. Berkeley’s IGS can only survey registered voters who have opted into the email system. While they are important, particularly in terms of elections, those who register but don’t opt in make up about two-thirds of the state’s eligible voters.

        And then, there are those who just don’t vote….

      October 1, 2019 KTVU Fox
      Poll: Half of California voters have considered leaving the state
      http://www.ktvu.com/news/ktvu-local-news/poll-half-of-california-voters-have-considered-leaving-the-state

      BERKELEY, Calif. (KTVU) – The findings may not come as a surprise to many Bay Area residents: A new poll said more than half of California’s registered voters have considered leaving the state, with most people citing the high cost of housing as the biggest reason.

      The survey by UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies found that in total, 52% admitted they’ve recently thought of making a move. 24% admitted to giving it serious consideration and 28% said they’ve put some thought into the idea.

      An overwhelming 71% of those polled pointed to the high cost of housing. That figure was even higher, 79%, among those surveyed in the Bay Area…

      …Other top reasons mentioned were high taxes (58%) and the state’s political culture (46%). Researchers said, however, there were differences in these areas, depending on where voters stood on the political spectrum.

      “Republican and conservatives cite these as their top two reasons for wanting to leave, eclipsing even the high cost of housing,” researchers said. “By contrast, far fewer Democrats or liberals mention the state’s political culture as a reason for wanting to leave the state, and their mention of high taxes is only about half that of Republican and conservative voters,” they added….

      I wonder is there a way to be against vaccines and not be part of the anti-vax movement.

      The anti-vax movement although correct in criticizing the need to take vaccines are spreading false information. And that false information is leading to more people not listening to evidence against vaccines.

      One of the biggest lies I constantly see from anti-vaxxers is telling everyone that they won’t get sick by not taking vaccines. That they can take alternative medicines to get the same results. This has led to embarrassing stories of anti-vaxxers getting the flu or measles and being “debunked”.

      Look I don’t plan on getting vaccinated but I know I will risk getting sick from measles and other illness. I also know I won’t die from it should I contract it. Ultimately, that is what the vaccine industry depends on and what we can disprove. The belief that we will die unless we take vaccines.

      “Everything you need to know about life is taught in Kindergarten!”

      Funny you should say that. When someone mentioned starting their own library, asking for suggestions of “seed” books for kids, Robert Fulgham’s “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” actually occurred to me later on (though it’s not really a kids’ book, but just one of those coffee table, pearls-of-wisdom giftbook thingys):

      “These are the things I learned (in Kindergarten):

      1. Share everything.
      2. Play fair.
      3. Don’t hit people.
      4. Put things back where you found them.
      5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
      6. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
      7. Say you’re SORRY when you HURT somebody.
      8. Wash your hands before you eat.
      9. Flush.
      10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
      11. Live a balanced life – learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
      12. Take a nap every afternoon.
      13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
      14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
      15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup – they all die. So do we.
      16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned – the biggest word of all – LOOK.”

      As for me, I’d put a few qualifiers on certain things like “share everything” but otherwise it’s basically the golden rule amplified mixed with a little common sense.

    Just heard of a powerful propaganda tool today known as

    “Inoculation Theory”.

    I hadn’t ever heard about it before this afternoon. It seems at once simple and intuitive and yet utterly insidious… Wiki explains:

    “…The theory posits that weak counterarguments– arguments that are refuted –generate resistance within the receiver, enabling them to maintain their beliefs in the face of a future, stronger attack. Following exposure to weak counterarguments (e.g., counterarguments that have been paired with refutations), the receiver will then seek out supporting information to further strengthen their threatened position. The held attitude or belief becomes resistant to a stronger attack, hence the medical analogy of a vaccine…

    There are four basic key components to successful inoculation: threat, refutational preemption, delay, and involvement…”

    It would seem to be extremely powerful as it plays off of and aims at reinforcing people’s existing assumptions.

    I’m sure it’s been used to stigmatize “Conspiracy theorists”, 9/11 or otherwise, along with “Climate skeptics”. Weak arguments suffice as detailed ones become technical and too heavy for most people to accept to take on or try to comprehend.

    I mention it because I think if anyone can bring this notion to crystal clarity, it would be Mr. Corbett.

    Could be a good “Propaganda Watch” episode.

    • manbearpig says:

      Damn! It’s the “involvement” part as explained by wiki that niggles me:

    Science as propaganda

    In science there are so many of these propaganda articles.
    Because they do not do real polls, they select a certain group of people instead.
    Like how they generated the 98% percent.
    Or 9 out of 10 doctors use…
    And for every study that shows that some product is bad, a company will put out 10 studies to show that their product is good.

    The GMO/Pesticide lie is very similar. The selected people are all working in the field for the same company. And the funding and methodology of the research is fully controlled by those companies as well. This filters out any most of the resistance. And any opponent will lose their career and be shamed.

    The shaming of the opposition, is also a standard procedure in science. With my background in electromagnetism I find some problems with astronomy. Instead of having a proper discussion, I am shamed by the “scientists” in the field. While I can clearly point out the errors, the “scientists” somehow fall back to logical fallacies, starting with shaming. Criticizing a field of science where you are not part in, is “verboten”.

    Similar protection systems are in the health industry.

    Science fiction of problem/solution

    Instead of science we see science-fiction and futurism in these fields.
    “Cure for cancer only 5 years away”. “Commercial Nuclear fusion only 15 years away.” “Quantum computer can be ready in 10 years”
    These are usually claims for more money.

    Problems are usually introduced with fake studies with apocalyptic statements: “Earth will die in 15 years”. “Agriculture can not make enough food” “Meteor can end all life on Earth”. “Zika will spread and kills millions”.

    Often this combines with solutions just a few months later:
    “Nuclear waste can safely be stored underground for 100,000 years” or “GMO will increase productivity of agriculture in the future” or “NASA works on nuclear rockets to fight meteors”. “Mosquito engineered to fight Zika”

    We all now know how that last solution worked out. Guess how the other solutions (if implemented) will fail.

    Extract about George Gallup from a New Yorker article entitled:

    Politics and the New Machine
    What the turn from polls to data science means for democracy.

    By Jill Lepore

    November 8, 2015

    “…Gallup had always wanted to be a newspaper editor, but after graduating from the University of Iowa, in 1923, he entered a Ph.D. program in applied psychology. In 1928, in a dissertation called “An Objective Method for Determining Reader Interest in the Content of a Newspaper,”

    *Gallup argued that “at one time the press was depended upon as the chief agency for instructing and informing the mass of people” but that newspapers no longer filled that role and instead ought to meet “a greater need for entertainment.”*

    He therefore devised a method: he’d watch readers go through a newspaper column by column and mark up the parts they liked, so that he could advise an editor which parts of the paper to keep printing and which parts to scrap…

    …But what Gallup presented as “public opinion” was the opinion of Americans who were disproportionately educated, white, and male. Nationwide, in the nineteen-thirties and forties, blacks constituted about ten per cent of the population but made up less than two per cent of Gallup’s survey respondents. Because blacks in the South were generally prevented from voting, Gallup assigned no “Negro quota” in those states. As the historian Sarah Igo has pointed out, “Instead of functioning as a tool for democracy, opinion polls were deliberately modeled upon, and compounded, democracy’s flaws.”

    …Gallup moved to New York, and began working for an advertising agency while also teaching at Columbia and running an outfit he called the Editors’ Research Bureau, selling his services to newspapers. Gallup thought of this work as “a new form of journalism.” But he decided that it ought to sound academic, too. In 1935, in Princeton, he founded the American Institute of Public Opinion, with funding provided by more than a hundred newspapers…

    …When Gallup started out, he was skeptical about using a survey to forecast an election: “Such a test is by no means perfect, because a preelection survey must not only measure public opinion in respect to candidates but must also predict just what groups of people will actually take the trouble to cast their ballots.” Also, he didn’t think that predicting elections constituted a public good: “While such forecasts provide an interesting and legitimate activity, they probably serve no great social purpose.” Then why do it? Gallup conducted polls only to prove the accuracy of his surveys, there being no other way to demonstrate it. The polls themselves, he thought, were pointless…”

    https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/11/16/politics-and-the-new-machine

    With the father of polling himself reducing the fourth estate to a means of entertainment, were polls ever meant to be anything but a government propaganda tool?

    • manbearpig says:

      sorry, should’ve said

      “…ever meant to be anything but a tool for the elites and their instrumentalized governments?”.

      and though Gallup reportedly rejected the ideas of Lippman and Bernays that humans represented a dangerous herd led by its primal, uncontrollable instincts

      like Bernays, he used his “applied psychology” education to make advertising more effective.

    https://escholarship.org/uc/item/2ns281d1#main

    While I am writing to you from my Advocacy email account, I am writing to you as someone who has been doing market researcher for Fortune 500 firms for the past 25 years. I have to say I am ashamed to see the quality of polling coming out of UC Berkeley and the reporting done by the LA Times, regarding today’s Vaccination law poll.

    You violated so many basic polling principles. I know I don’t need to explain it to you, but let’s go through it error by error…
    1. Ask a leading question to bias the following questions response: The poll asked “How concerned are you that the recent outbreak of measles in California will become more widespread?” setting the respondents up to have a measles growing measles outbreak in mind. We all know if you had not asked this question the responses would have skewed downward for the next question. And if you had asked a question such as “How important do you feel the doctor patient relationship is when understanding the risk of certain medical treatments?” it would have skewed even further downward.
    2. Ask a loaded and a double barreled question will confuse the respondent: “Currently state law requires most parents to have their children vaccinated for diseases like measles, mumps and rubella before they can attend a public or private school or enroll in day care. While exemptions are allowed for doctor-approved reasons, to reduce the risk of an outbreak a new bill has been proposed that would require exemptions to be subject to review and rejection by the California Department of Public Health for schools or day care centers in areas where immunization rates are less than 95%. Do you favor or oppose this new bill?” Let’s go through all the issues here.
    a. This question confusing and is 4 times the length of the other questions, leading to inconsistency and people unlikely to comprehend the question fully.
    b. This question is double barreled. What is the actual question? If you break it down…is the question actually is “Do you favor or oppose this bill whose purpose is to reduce the risk of an outbreak” or “Do you favor or oppose this bill that require exemptions to be subject to review and rejection by the California Department of Public Health for schools or day care centers in areas where immunization rates are less than 95%” Which are the results pointing to? Which did people answer if their answers to the two questions were different. Given the set up of the question it was likely the bill to reduce the risk of an outbreak, but we won’t know.
    c. The content is misleading. While the bill is described as requiring exemptions to be subject to review and rejection in schools, etc. where rates are less than 95%, it does not say anything about the medical exemption criteria or the doctors automatically being reviewed after writing 4 exemptions, so not giving the whole story and certainly not encompassing what SB276/714 actually do.

    So for the report headline to then say “Strong Support for the State’s New Child Vaccination Law” is completely bogus. You go on to say in the report (https://escholarship.org/uc/item/2ns281d1#main), “When asked about recent legislation requiring parents to have their child vaccinated for diseases like the measles, mumps and rubella before they can attend a public or private school or daycare center, greater than eight in ten voters (83%) say they favor the law, 61% of whom favor it strongly. Just 16% are opposed”. Could you please show me where in your survey you asked the question that said that the question was about legislation requiring parents to have their child vaccinated? That is not what your question asked and it certainly was not what the laws do. You are completely misleading the reader who is likely not going to read all 8 pages of your report to realize what the actual question was and certainly not realize what the actual law does.

    Then in the more detailed summary you state:
    “The statewide sample of voters was asked to offer their opinions about recent legislation requiring parents in the state to have their children vaccinated for diseases like the measles, mumps and rubella before they can attend a public or private school or daycare center. Voters were told that the law provides exemptions for doctor-approved reasons, but that such exemptions are subject to review and rejection by the California Department of Public Health for schools or daycare centers in communities where immunization rates are less than 95%.After being read this description, greater than eight in ten voters statewide (83%) express support for the law, most of whom (61%) favor it strongly. Just 16% are opposed.”
    You will notice here the one key part leading of the question that was asked is actually omitted…” While exemptions are allowed for doctor-approved reasons, to reduce the risk of an outbreak a new bill has been proposed”.
    Again you are misleading the reader who is likely not going to read all 8 pages of your report to realize what the actual question was and certainly not realize what the actual law does.

      You’re right, those sure are slanted and confusing and manipulative questions and conclusions, christinavoice. Thank you for writing to the LA Times and for sharing your letter with us. Did your letter (or parts of it) get published? If not, would you consider summarizing it and resending it to the editors? It sure would be good if your short explanation of the poll’s bias reached the paper’s readers.
