Sunstein Won: Cognitive Infiltration of the “Alternative” Media

09/13/202176 Comments

Question: How do you spot a fed?

This is not an idle question. As dedicated devotees of the independent media and serious students of history will know all too well, wherever you find a group that seriously challenges the power of the state—or, more to the point, the deep state—you will also find federal agents trying to infiltrate that group. From the original COINTELPRO operations in the 1950s right through to the recent (FBI-provocateured) plot to “kidnap” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (with its curious denouement), there is no shortage of examples of this phenomenon.

Sometimes the feds are easy to spot. Remember the “protesters” at the 2007 Montebello SPP protests who threatened the police line with rocks in their hands, trying to turn a peaceful assembly into a riot that would justify a violent police response? When these rock-wielding, mask-wearing pretenders got called out by real protesters as police operatives, they promptly crashed the police line and got themselves “arrested” . . . conveniently exposing the fact that they were wearing the exact same standard-issue boots as their arresting officers. Caught in the act, the Quebec provincial police had to admit that the protesters were indeed undercover police officers (although, strangely enough, they never explained what those undercover police officers were doing approaching the police line with rocks in their hands).

But, unfortunately for those of us who participate in conspiracy analysis, the feds are not always so inept or so blindingly obvious in their actions. So it would behoove us to know some of the tell-tale signs of undercover agents in our midst, wouldn’t it?

    The article title refers to “alternative” media where the article body refers to “ independent” media?

    There is a key difference, firstly only an all-seeing god can determine if media is truly independent, where as any critical thinking reader or listener can determine if the media is alternative.

    Did the article you read teach you something new? Is the information generally available from other sources? If the answer is yes and then no, the media is alternative. Of course you will need to research further to find out if the information is actually true or not, but at least the media site gave you an opportunity to learn something you didn’t know.

    On the other hand you can never really know if a news source is independent as you can’t guarantee that you can discover all their sources of funding or influence unless you can truly see through walls and see the atoms that the matrix is built from

    Corbett’s article Sunstein Won: Cognitive Infiltration of the “Alternative” Media
    Wow!
    This helps.
    As someone who trips often, this helps to put a balance of perspective in researching, analyzing and discussing information. Thanks. I need a stabilizer every now and then.

    Corbett made a lot of points in the article.
    This paragraph stuck out for me…

    “…As someone who works as a conspiracy analyst for a living, I’m all too familiar with how the spirit of the investigations that are taking place online has shifted in recent years.
    People who otherwise would be spending their time critiquing and analyzing the moves of the deep state are now spending more and more of their time engaging others in purity tests and loudly denouncing each other for not holding to this or that orthodoxy or for spending their time on this subject instead of some other subject….”

    J,
    I read: “take care not to be consumed by an implosion of self-feeding paranoia loop, sailing the sargasso seas,, or feast & fly towards the wide horizon that only an open mind, with belief slate blank can see.”

    I bet some red pill fallout could be called an “overreaction to the drug”, wherein people gain assurances from new angles on a story, and lose half their friends in the bargain. Or as you say, valuable time/energy gets misdirected.

    The balance , that I think you were hoping to inspire from this piece is what we locally call “tuning the bullshit meter”, it requires a combo of vigilance and a more relaxed keep it simple stupid straight forwardness with people.

    But I sense that the itch your scratching here is gonna feel, for many, like having suddenly tripped into a jumping ants nest.

    thanks for the reminder to not be overwhelmed by the constant stinging of our capacity to trust

    In truth
    we are trust

    not “in” this or that
    just the energetic push of the thing itself

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      I like that metaphoric phrase “…like having suddenly tripped into a jumping ants nest.”

  4. The fact CIT got mentioned in the reply cited in this article made me go hmmmm. CIT did research on the Pentagon and found out, according to them, the plane that approached the Pentagon flew north instead of south of the CITGO gasstatation, and therefore could not have hit the Pentagon clipping 5 lightpoles on its way, one of them alledgedly penetrating the cab of Loyde England on top of the bridge in front of the Pentagon.

    They got attacked by David Chandler and Wayne Coste and some others. Others got behind them too, like Adam Fitzgerald and others.

    CIT defended itself, and also got people behind them, like Craig Mcgee.

    One party accused the other of being trolls, and the other way around.

    This has been going on for years now, perhaps even 10 years, with the latest development being a podcast by David Steele with Mcgee and another man, exposing the fraud.

    But Fitzgerald and co replied with a video.

    Now the Steele podcast has been taken offline. Fitzgerald made a video about Richard Gage stepping down as CEO from AE911Truth a week before 911, and attacking elements within AE911Truth. I cannot find the news item that Gage stepped down, but he shows a screenshot in his video, and I read an article from the “acting” current CEO, or something…

    But this all has been feeling like a bee-nest, and I have no idea what to make of it…

    What to think about this all, what to think about both investigations? What if the movement is attacked from within, no matter if it is Mcgee & co or Chandler & co that are the infiltrators? When no attention is given to this issue, the movement will fail, and Sunstein has won as well.

    What to do with this?

      EXCERPTS from “Why I am Going Independent…” by Richard Gage

      “Earlier this month AE911Truth issued a press release and e-mail to A&E Members that included this Statement: ”
      “…Richard Gage, organization founder, will no longer serve as the organization’s CEO.”

      “As you can imagine, this has raised many questions, which I decided to wait until after the 20th Anniversary to address, in order not to distract from all of the important 9/11 Truth Movement events and activities.

      This Statement is on my own behalf and not on behalf of AE911Truth.

      As you probably know by now we had been working with Spike Lee for months on what was one of the greatest opportunities the 9/11 Truth Movement had ever had to reach a wide mainstream audience, which would have been the final segment of his video documentary that was aired by HBO on Sept. 11th. That 30-minute segment, which included a dozen interviews with Family Members and technical experts, including myself, unfortunately was never broadcast. This action by Spike surely was at least in part due to enormous pressure from the Powers That Be, but my off-topic comments quoted in Slate Magazine’s August 24th article, which they had to have made a major effort to find, was most likely a significant contributing factor.

      Spike may well have been upset to see my comments quoted in the article, which was on his interview with the magazine, as the first two segments of his mini-series “Epicenter” focused on the devastation, particularly by Covid-19 in NYC, in which he makes clear that he agrees with the official narrative on that subject.

      This was of course a great disappointment for all of us in the 9/11 Truth Movement and of course for me personally—to have worked so hard to reach that historic moment only for it not to happen. In those moments of speaking off-topic I failed to remember that I represent 3,500 architects and engineers who have signed our AE911Truth Petition which is only about the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 on September 11th, 2001—and nothing else….”

          UPDATE Saturday September 18th

          Spike Lee’s 9/11 doc still has the building blocks he was laying for his controlled demolition exposé
          [VIDEO CLIPS in article]
          https://www.ae911truth.org/news/779-spike-lee-s-9-11-doc-still-has-the-building-blocks-he-was-laying-for-his-controlled-demolition-expose

          EXCERPTS won’t express the article with its video clips, but here are a few…

          Just when a typical 9/11 documentary would end its chronicling of the day’s events, Lee shows the destruction of Building 7 to his viewers — a majority of whom are surely seeing it for the first time. [VIDEOS]

          Lee also includes footage before the collapse of a police officer warning the cameraman filming him: “Be careful. Because they said the building, if it does drop, it’s going to come in this direction.” With this clip, Lee gives the audience a glimpse of the precise foreknowledge of Building 7’s destruction that could only have been possible if one or more officials at the scene knew the building was going to be brought down. (This video, shot by CNN cameraman Joe Cantali, is no longer available on his YouTube channel.)

          Lee’s use of graphic footage of each building’s destruction clearly had its intended effect on many viewers. While watching Episode 3, my wife’s co-worker — who has barely looked at footage of the event since it happened — texted my wife this:

          “I am watching the spike doc and dude re watching the first tower come down…there is NOOOO WAY there weren’t explosives in that building. Like NO WAY.”

          In the wake of the controversy and now-public knowledge that Lee questions how the towers came down, I have little doubt that many thousands of people, if not millions, will have the same reaction as my wife’s co-worker when they watch Episode 3.

          As for Building 7, if our polling of the American public is at all representative of the NYC Epicenters audience, we can surmise that half of those who watch Episode 3 will come away suspecting that Building 7 was brought down in a controlled demolition — and only 20 percent will suspect it was caused by fires.

          The reality is that, despite the half-hour section being censored from the final episode, Lee has put the demolition of the Twin Towers and Building 7 in plain sight for all who are not wearing blinders to see.

          Of course, the mainstream media will continue to cheer the censorship of NYC Epicenters. They will claim the series “flows better” with the half-hour section removed. But they fail to see or acknowledge that Episodes 3 and 4 were a trail leading inextricably to the now-missing culmination of Lee’s eight-hour docuseries….

      • mkey says:

        This is the perfect example why one should not stop short when seeking truth. Off topic remarks about a fascist state leveraging an invisible enemy as a basis for plowing human freedoms and massively brain washing people? How the HELL is that off topic? This is exactly the SAME thing this organization has ostensibly been dancing around for 20 years.

        To even suggest that anyone from that organization validated the idea that Gage should step down due to his off topic comments is nauseating and raises valid concern that said organization is nothing but a sorry, massive downpour soaked clown show following an accident in which the clown car crashed and burned at the bottom of the world’s largest pothole.

        The search for truth is abrasive, hostile, belligerent, vitriolic, it innately assails lies and bullshit. That some may be upset over this process and how it affects their feelings matters not one iota. There is very good reason why much of the so called truth movement looks like a kindergarten hosting rotten spoiled children whom have been taught by their absent, yet well set parents to wipe their little asses with brand new iphones.

        • HomeRemedySupply says:

          Personally, I am with ya mkey.
          “… the idea that Gage should step down due to his off topic comments is nauseating….”
          I think Gage should have remained.

          I understand both sides of this coin.
          There’s that old ‘law’ of he who ‘owns’ the realm, makes the rules. The AE911Truth board wants all public statements to focus solely on its mission statement staying to the topic of 9/11.
          The Board makes, interprets, and enforces the rules.

          I’ve had many fiery scraps in the past surrounding this idea “that all conversations should be restricted solely to 9/11.”
          For me, the topic of 9/11 goes way beyond the event itself, and into a rabbit hole of other relevant information…and they are inter-related.

          But there is another aspect to this particular scenario involving Gage.
          — HBO Media —
          When we become dependent upon authorities for the expression of truth, we become “owned” by those authorities.
          Thus, we have given them permission to think for us, and they own our Intelligence.
          When we rely upon the Corporate Controlled Media (CCM) and Government, our minds become captive by officials who dictate to us what to think and observe.

          Besides, (while it is speculation), I do not believe for one minute that HBO would ever allow an “era-changing event of information” to come out of that Spike Lee 9/11 film.
          I believe that an opportunity was seized, to not only nix the 9/11 truth stuff, but to cause a disruption in the 9/11 Truth movement itself by demonizing Gage.

          • mkey says:

            I do not believe for one minute that HBO would ever allow an “era-changing event of information”

            That’s exactly why many authors will choose to deliver the story wrapped in an alegory as it may get around restrictions and later have a clearer trajectory toward (receptive part of) the audience.

      • nom de guerre says:

        If they thought the solution was gaining access to the masses via corporate media, they either didn’t understand the nature of the problem and/or were successfully infiltrated and compromised. And Spike Lee didn’t see this coming? Really?

        The coverup is the most important part of this event, because it shows very clearly that 9/11 is merely a symptom of widespread, institutional corruption. If an organization/movement isn’t willing to look at that, they’re not part of the solution, in my opinion.

          Be it Watergate, The Tea Dome scandal, Savings and Loan crisis, wars, disinformation or any other crisis it is always the cover-up that is the most important.

    Yes, dont play is the best strategy. However, it would be nice to have an acronym which says “you are contributing nothing of value, just muddying the waters, but have at it, I shall henceforth ignore you” which the annoyed can use to respond when provoked.

    How I spotted the fed.

    I was at a black hat conference in 2010. It had one of those cool twitter walls at the front which showed every tweet with the conference’s hashtag.

    The guy sat behind me had a pristine buzzcut and a bomber jacket, and every time I looked at him he stared at the presentation without blinking. The rest of us were in various states of shoddy dress – band shirts, jeans and dirty sneakers were the order of the day.

    So I tweeted “At 13:37, everybody stand up and point at the Fed. #conferencename”, which got a chuckle from the room.

    Well, this guy got more and more uncomfortable as time went on, his jaw clenching and his back was as straight as a die.

    Unfortunately, nobody stood up and pointed at him, but I got to make a piece of poop feel really uncomfortable for half an hour, so I call that a win.

    My experience with Federal agents infiltrating political groups has helped me realize a few common aspects. They are politically astute and are much more aware of the issues than the common person. They strive towards leadership positions. They have good argumentative skills. They tend to guide the group to activities that will lead to violence. They inject suspicion and conflict among the members.

    Suspicion that someone is an agent is a problem in itself. Groups need to avoid this paranoia as it is self-destructive. Avoiding hierarchical decision making will make it more difficult for someone to hijack the group.

  8. mkey says:

    I think the most important point is: we spent 18 months describing the prison.

  9. Arby says:

    “Remember that not only did the CIA hold multiple meetings of what it called the “Garrison Group” to determine how the agency could undermine or discredit the investigation that District Attorney Jim Garrison had opened up into the JFK assassination, but it actually “planted nine agents inside the Garrison investigation to feed him false information and to report back to Langley on what Garrison was finding out.””

    Did those hard-working 9 appointed gatekeepers believe that they were doing honest, productive – benefitting all of society – work? Not fully, I would aver.

    Marry imperfect humans with a money system, of their design, and you get the above sort of catastrophe. Human imperfection allows for all kinds of folly, from the serious – Israeli Nazis taking children from ‘unvaccinated’ parents, right now as I type – to the not so serious. Good and bad people are imperfect. But bad people have, like sociopaths, ‘chosen’ to be bad. The world is full of bad people. It’s so full of bad people, C.J. Hopkins refers to the covid cult that is the majority of humankind right now. (If it isn’t, then there’s still no denying that they are not small in number.) He explains that where you used to get cults that were tiny pockets within society, where the rest of society (by some measures) was normal, now that’s reversed. Those who don’t choose to unthinkingly go along with the fascist authorities and their terrorist operations are in small pockets here and there, although they are obviously not small pockets.

    But the point is, the crazies (the sociopaths) have been running things for a long time and have succeeded in mentally and spiritually ruining the world (which doesn’t mean that individuals can’t resist evil). Our world is now the Planet of the Crazies, some whom know exactly what they’re doing and most who just don’t care (and therefore don’t know fully) and choose to go along to get along, fooling themselves into thinking that they’ll be just fine of course.

    “They just have to put the idea of infiltration out there.” That’s very panopticonish.

  11. Arby says:

    “All we are left with is our suspicions, which we then harden into conclusions, usually by throwing the baby out with the bathwater and closing off discussion or exploration of counter-evidence to our own ideas.”

    Not quite, I think. If I have reason to suspect I’m dealing with a trouble-maker (it doesn’t matter where he or she comes from), then ‘in order to’ carry on learning and teaching (one and the same thing), I ‘have to’ disengage with that particular person. Selective disengagement, as opposed to complete disengagement, is what is required.

    In the end, “I” am not going to save the world. Neither will any individual human being or any group of individual human beings living on earth right now. We are not God. I’m not advocating asceticism. (I blog, I poster and I jump into discussions everywhere and cause ‘good’ trouble.) I’m just saying, as James is saying in his above article, that we should be aware of certain realities.

  12. nom de guerre says:

    I don’t see this as an insurmountable problem. Psychological warfare is weaponized sophistry. Anyone who attacks honest enquiry will invariably utilize logical fallacies, which generally aren’t very hard to spot if you understand logic. If you are a group that is pursuing honest enquiry, it should be clearly understood that open-mindedness is a prerequisite, and that it is counterproductive to allow professional trolls to derail your efforts.

    I think it boils down to self-discipline and being clear about what you are trying to achieve, which in turn allows you to map out how to get there. So really speaking, government trolling is helpful in that it requires us to be disciplined and focused. Easier said than done? Absolutely, but so what. This is why you don’t want to overemphasize growth. It only takes a few good people to accomplish something great; the masses, on the other hand, never have, and never will.

  15. nosoapradio says:

    Online communication has its perils, particularly on forums dedicated to monumental, violent and emotionally charged events and though the experience mustn’t become a full-time witch hunt that prevents constructive research from being done, it is natural to remain skeptical and to express this skepticism.

    So I find myself in the uncomfortable position of being in diametrical disagreement with Mr Corbett on the nature of the 9/11 thread cited in this article comprised of skeptical assertions that he qualifies as being “ludicrously off-base”.

    Though I can empathize with being profoundly indignant at harsh criticism or insinuations directed at a person whom I greatly respect and for whom I feel gratitude; the authors of the ludicrously off-base assertions in the thread cited above were trying to make valid points, albeit clumsily, and yet they were promptly and harshly criticized and accused of having contributed “jack shit”, of being sock-puppets and being told in no uncertain terms that they should refrain from expressing themselves in favor of people who have written books and organized events or done something useful for the movement as judged by the indignant and self-righteous forum regulars as the one cited above.

    This smacks of condescending chomskian intellectual bullying which is rampant on “alternative media” websites

    that I find to be loathesome and dangerous as it proves to be very effective at shutting people up and obscuring the truth.

    The offenders, who admitted they would need to read the book, were questioning the language being used on both the cover of the book and by Amazon to describe it and suggesting that in themselves, the statements featured therein seemed to promote the official 9/11 fairytale. Another person, in light of this language, suggests that a way of undermining the movement is to, from within, move people closer and closer to the afore-mentioned official narrative. In doing so, these people have sacrilegiously suggested that Mr Fenton is not who he appears to be or is unwittingly working against “the movement’s” interests. They are nevertheless raising valid points.

    …those who might have engaged in a meaningful discussion of Fenton’s work had abandoned the thread. Another “Mission Accomplished!” for those who wish to thwart productive discourse on a vitally important topic.

    Meaningful discussion of the book was virtually impossible when the thread was initiated as it had just been released and no one, not even the regulars had read it yet.

    Those who actively thwarted meaningful discussion were those commenters who took things personally and who instead of entertaining the skeptics’ assertions, steering the discussion towards Mr Fenton’s previous works or outlining reasons as to why such skepticism was unnecessary, decided to gang up on and dismiss the offenders valid concerns with self-congratulatory and insulting rants advocating self-censorship.

    As long as debatable reasons are given, it should be possible to question anything written by Chomsky, Mr Fenton and even Corbett himself,

    from the cover of the book to the blurbs used on Amazon to sell said writings

    at the risk of allowing movement leaders to dictate what we’re allowed to express on online forums.

  16. HomeRemedySupply says:

    I had several “take-homes” from Corbett’s article
    “Sunstein Won: Cognitive Infiltration of the “Alternative” Media”
    You can see my top-of-the-thread comment for one aspect.

    Plus, there are some other comments on this thread which bring out some excellent points.
    (As an aside, there are probably some readers who are unfamiliar with terms like CIT or LIHOP or other jargon.)

    I want to focus on one take-home point…
    — Getting Married —

    Sometimes, (and we all are guilty of this), we can marry ourselves to a concept, a theory, a certain “truth narrative”.
    This is where a liability can exist.
    As Corbett says,
    “…Increasingly, everything is a purity test. And when everything is a purity test, eventually everyone fails that test. No one will ever hold all of the same beliefs as you on every subject of importance….”

    …and there’s this article’s user quote…
    “…I’ve been in this movement for 6 years and NOTHING is EVER good enough for the anonymous peanut gallery of absolutists who INSIST that THEIR language and ideas and opinions and theories trump all others….”

    MY POINT…
    James Corbett does not talk about my important “truth narrative”, and thus he is a triple deep state disinfo agent.
    …AND…
    I will be “throwing the baby out with the bathwater and closing off discussion or exploration of counter-evidence to our own ideas.” (JC quote)

    That’s silly. That is such a silly statement.

    “And, somewhere off in the distance, Sunstein is laughing.” writes Corbett.

    I might as well add something to all this.
    It has been my experience (and Corbett states this), that he follows his own path of interest.
    He goes where he wants to go.
    I strongly admire that.

    … And the book contends that vaccines cannot be trusted, when study after study has demonstrated the overwhelming effectiveness and safety of COVID-19 vaccines…

    …a book called “Reversing the Side Effects of the COVID-19 Vaccine.” Among other falsehoods, the book claims that COVID-19 vaccines are “making people sick and killing them” and that “shedding…is causing non-vaccinated people to become ill and suffer miscarriages.”…

    …books by Alex Berenson…
    “Ivermectin: What You Need to Know – A COVID 19 Cure?”
    …even included a book called “Heal COVID-19 on Your Own,” which promotes “holistic self-ameliorative therapeutic techniques” as COVID-19 cures…

    [Warren cites how Facebook and Twitter have removed ‘misinformation’.]
    …In fact, Amazon itself has removed books trafficking in misinformation from its platform in recent years. In March 2019, Amazon removed books pushing pseudoscientific cures to autism and debunked theories linking autism to childhood vaccines. Earlier this year, Amazon publicly stated its policy to refuse to sell “books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness” and removed books in violation of the policy. Amazon has even reportedly removed books containing COVID-19 misinformation in response to prior inquiries, though there has been little transparency around the company’s policies….

    What if the spooks who are infiltrating various groups actually change their mind? Not everyone is a psychopath, after all. Some people can actually recognize what they are doing is wrong and decide to change.

    Having said that, I have lost respect for Chomsky and Elizabeth Warren. I don’t know what happened to them, perhaps they were always corrupt, but they have sold their soul. Some of Chomsky’s work though is quite good.

    It’s good to separated the baby with the bathwater. Similar to how some western medicine therapies are good and even some genetic based therapies might actually help people who are sick. There are many things that can be used for good or used for evil.

    • nosoapradio says:

      y’know cu.h.j,

      one of my earliest rude awakenings as to how this world functions, growing up during my adolescence in a “5-college town”, was realizing how profoundly obnoxious frat boys could be. From holding up big score cards as women walked past their impressive frat house to gravely assaulting women and minorities on campus… And when I realized that this mentality, these privileged cliques were not only institutionalized but were considered a sacred tradition, I had a flash of the dark underworld lying beneath the Disney veneer.

      This anecdote was supposed to be in response to your idea that spooks could change their mind… but… anyhow

      As for Chomsky… what distinguishes him from people who “have blind spots” or who “simply don’t agree with you on all issues” is that

      he is very actively, deliberately, demonstrably and successfully striving to deceive his disciples on certain precise issues. His devotees are the ivy league left-wing prestigious academics themselves (along with droves of fresh young wannabes) so his methods of deception must be both sophisticated and steeped in his seemingly irreproachable monumentally distinguished academic accomplishments. (Miles Mathis presented a pretty intriguing break-down of the man’s life and career)

      And it was both horrifying and fascinating trying to deconstruct and understand these methods of using truth to disseminate lies. Haven’t done much of a job of it finally but it still niggles me when I sense it’s happening. (still another hat tip to Barry Zwicker)

      So he’s very good at deception which may explain why he’s been employed by MIT, an ally of the DOD, for well over half a century or why he helped the Washington DC-based IPS in its early days which, created thanks to funding by colossal fortunes such as the Warburgs, set up what’s known as the “New Left”. (Incidentally, just very recently, my uncle with whom I’ve a had a single short conversation in my entire life, quite seriously informed me that he’s been a member of the New Left “living in the belly of the beast” since its very beginnings. (However he declined to answer any of my questions that followed that revelation.)

      Gosh. Good morning cu.h.j, HRS and nom de guerre. Time for my first daily dose of caffeine and to get to work on a translation about a man who perfectly described our current Covid hysterical predicament centuries ago in his Los Caprichos; a certain Francisco de Goya!

      • nosoapradio says:

        as a quick addendum

        Chomsky’s powers of deception can also be seen in 2 other major areas:

        the Faurisson scandal that broke out when this gatekeeper wrote a preface to the professor’s book questioning the official version of the holocaust. This scandal ultimately saw the jailing of the professor and Chomsky’s conclusive statement on the matter:

        and we lose our humanity if we are even willing to enter the arena of debate with those who seek to deny or underplay Nazi crimes

        Pretty impressive for someone who vociferously proclaims he’s an ardent and devoted champion of free speech!

        and despite his apparent reputation as an ardent critic of Israel and even friend to the Palestinians he nevertheless largely contributed to neutering the BDS movement, slithering out of it, decrying it using his tricky, duplicitous language. (hat tip to Jeffrey Blankfort among others).

        ok, nuff said, duty calls… Awww! I missed the glorious mediterranean dawn this morning!

        • cu.h.j says:

          nosoapradio,

          Thanks for the thoughtful response. I will have to check out Miles Mathis’s analysis of Chomsky. Perhaps he’s similar to O’brien in the book 1984 who was really a member of the thought police.

          It’s pretty creepy to think that he was always there as a gatekeeper to manipulate the minds of academics and young people.

          I used to really enjoy hearing Chomsky speak and Howard Zinn as well when I was more of a “progressive”. I used to believe the “left” were the good guys, fighting the good fight for liberty, justice and free speech.

          I have had a rude awakening beginning with 9/11, and now with the Covid scam, that Chomsky and other’s like him can’t be trusted. I’m not a physicist but the way the buildings fell sure looked like a controlled demolition, or something that could not have occurred by jet fuel from planes. Loose Change was one of the first documentaries I saw that made me really question the official story and also my husband’s physics professor who spoke openly that she did not believe the official story based on her analysis of the facts.

          Anyway, I am caffeinating myself now. Have a good day.

        • nom de guerre says:

          Faurisson was also brutally beaten, for the crime of having found and published the blueprints for Auschwitz and pointing out the obvious fact that it was not designed to be an “extermination camp”.

          The “Holocaust” was real, but so too was the collaboration between the Labor Zionists and the Nazi government, the Transfer Agreement being the most blatant and damning example. It is not for no reason that this subject is the king daddy of sacred cows.

      • nom de guerre says:

        I began to question who Chomsky really was when he casually stated at a talk I attended that it could be argued that we should “strengthen the bars of our cage” (government), to defend against corporate depredations. That made zero sense to me coming from someone who claimed to be a left libertarian. That’s like arguing that the best treatment for heroin addiction is to increase your addiction, because withdrawal (becoming free) is too painful. Better to take the blue pill and remain a slave.

        Just another Margaret Mead/Gregory Bateson, working for the cybernetic disorder.

        Cheers.

    What if there existed a superstar of dissent (own statue, own mainstream movie) able to attract the sympathies of Trumpers and leftists and just about everybody who wasn’t some “uptight suit”?

    What if this superstar, whose main revelations confirm what we have been conditioned to accept already through countless minor and big-buck entertainments, were not only willing to support the official 9/11 story but also to dismiss all questioning thereof as “distraction”?

    What if the sheer glamour of such a character were so strong that even the most ardent “truther” might be willing not merely to forgive but even to ignore the superstar’s boosting of the official narrative?

    Sorry, but wariness, suspicion and doubt brought me to this point. You’ll have to take them from my cold, dead brain.

        Getting warm there…

        I know that Sunstein and the his goblins can manipulate our suspicion as much as our naivete. We lose either way, but “can’t we all just get on together?” is an invite straight into the middle of the spider’s web.

        It is the large centralised institutions, all the corporations, all the churches, all media, which are most infiltrated. They are infiltrated to the point of saturation. They “get on together”. Gillette and Audi can take a hit for the team by running super expensive ads which alienate the punters but push a sicko globalist message. Their reward will come in ways other than sales. Major religious figures may as well be determined by a CFR ballot or a lucky draw at Bilderberg. And the media should really be called the Medium (neuter singular).

        Our Great Resetter, it cannot be said often enough, is a self-hater who cannot exist without the stink of the herd and the cheap incense of flattery. The creature has zero satisfaction with its own thoughts. I’m thinking that our fragmentation, frustrating and wasteful as it is, could well be more of a strength.

        The thing that distinguishes me from the enemy is that I’m not impressed with my guilty self but I quite like me anyway. Someone like Sunstein is boundlessly impressed by himself…but he loathes that same self.

    Indeed, there are those that are being paid to infiltrate and cause division among people that are coming together. For the most part, they appear as Trolls which can be easily ignored, however occasionally they do shape the narrative into a destructive division (perhaps they get paid more for this).
    The Trolls are everywhere on Youtube, and Facebook and Twitter, which is why I do not participate in any of them.
    Websites, like this one, have been off the radar, for the most part, because they had been considered of little impact to the Oligarchs. Having survived being Blacklisted from Youtube and most other censored channels, the “Corbett Report” appears to still be a thorn in the Oligarchs plans, thus let us not be drawn into arguing among ourselves.
    Legitimate Comments should be on topic and stated in such a way that it is clear as to what the motive of the Comment is.
    That said, I rarely look back to see how others have replied to my comments, for I have been Trolled in the past.

    Why go to all the trouble of infiltrating and convincing ‘conspiracy groups’ when you can just hack their accounts, modify or delete posts or hijack an account and make it say whatever you want? Yes, that’s right, in a new low (was that even possible? yes it was)for the Australian branch of the World Government they have recently passed the ‘Identify and Disrupt bill’

    https://www.australiannationalreview.com/state-of-affairs/australia-passes-identify-and-disrupt-bill/

    Which gives government the ability to:

    “The Surveillance Legislation Amendment (Identify and Disrupt) bill has created three new types of warrants that enable the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) to modify and delete data belonging to cybercriminal suspects and take over their accounts.

    Using the new data disruption warrants, the AFP and the ACIC can prevent serious offenses from being committed online by modifying, adding, copying or deleting data. Network activity warrants allow the agencies to gather intelligence on criminal activity being carried out by cyber-criminal networks, while account takeover warrants can be used to take control of a suspect’s online account.”

    I’m sure most people reading this can see the dangers lying right on the surface. What better way to silence pesky conspiracy theorists than hacking their accounts and inserting links to kiddy porn for example? That’ll fix ’em.

      Saturday September 18 – Zero Hedge
      Anti-Lockdown Protesters In Australia “Break Police Line” As Clashes Erupt
      [VIDEOS in article]
      https://www.zerohedge.com/political/australian-anti-lockdown-protesters-clash-police-illegal-melbourne-rally

      EXCERPTS
      Throughout the pandemic, Australia’s government has chosen to enact stringent restrictions to combat COVID-19. After the sixth lockdown since the pandemic began, anti-lockdown protesters in Melbourne have had enough with draconian virus measures and voiced their opposition in the streets on Saturday.

      Their right to protest freely was quickly deemed illegal as a massive brawl between demonstrators and police broke out. More than 200 people in Melbourne were arrested at illegal anti-lockdown rallies, according to Reuters.

      A rally in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond turned violent when police attempted to shut it down. Protesters broke through the police line in an EPIC fashion.

      An aerial view of another group of protesters in Melbourne resisted police orders.
      On the ground, there was a massive police presence. RT News said local reports indicate around 2,000 officers were called in.

      The illegal demonstrations took place as the metro area endures its sixth lockdown since the pandemic began, with the broader state of Victoria reported over 500 infections today.
      Victoria Police Commander Mark Galliott told local media that these protesters came out “not to protest freedoms, but simply to take on and have a fight with the police.”
      One of the causalities of the pandemic has been freedom of expression as the right to assemble has been banned in the guise of stopping the spread.
      By criminalizing peaceful protest and enforcing the authorities to intervene, the government of Australia is making the situation worse where it would entice even more freedom-loving people into the streets to protest tyranny.

      • nom de guerre says:

        Hopefully people are realizing that they have nothing to lose by fighting back (intelligently), and everything to gain. I’m cautiously optimistic.

        • HEDGE110 says:

          HomeRemedySupply and nom de guerre.

          If I was ratted out as an attendee at an ‘illegal’ peaceful protest, I would receive disciplinary action from my employer. My employer actually encouraged anyone with information about the protest activities of colleagues to come forward and share.

          Police are using surveillance to track and then to hand deliver fines to those who attend protests. Police also visit the homes of those they believe ‘may’ attend a protest. Not many over here realise that Australia is one of the ‘5 eyes’ nation states.

          Meanwhile my wife is being asked daily at work about her vaccination status and intentions. The psychological manipulation over here in Sydney, Australia is well refined. The major phone carrier places on her phone the message #getvaxxed.

          My bank has literally changed their name from ‘NAB’ to ‘JAB’ on their webpage. A military man is head of the Government’s vaccine roll-out objectives. It is an overwhelmingly difficult effort to resist injection over here. There are stories of people who don’t want to associate with the unvaxxed. I have decided that to the best of my ability I will continue to associate with all humans, regardless of which injection (or no injection) they took.

          • HomeRemedySupply says:

Controlling people hinges on controlling their environment, which is incredibly easy to do once they get sucked into the cybernetic ecosystem that is social media. “Smart devices” are pure evil as they are currently deployed.

      Just as it was strange for the first reading, on second thought I realized it should be interpreted by reading between the lines, I guess it was something of a joke…

      So, I am sorry to bother you with this post.

      • nosoapradio says:

        Good morning Joseph!

        As you probably well understand now, the tweet’s cleverly formulated to catch the eye of both “vax” and “anti-vaxxers”, the first because they think they agree with it and the second because they’re shocked that one of “their own” would tweet such a thing;

        and then goes on to make a statement about what “proper society” is:

        -an imposed brainwashing factory for your children
        -violates your privacy by sending its mafia thugs to your door
        -uses its youthful bodies and minds as a killing machine and cannon-fodder
        -restricts the use of the hemp plant and derived products in favor of its own lethal drug racket
        -extorts your hard-earned money to kill brown people on the other side of the planet.

        As far as the twitter artillery goes, it was a pretty good, if futile shot in the ongoing war for people’s minds.

        Ironic and non-inflammatory, people perform a double-take and have to reflect, so not bad at all.

        Reminds me of when I was sorely duped by a Facebook meme: “I am FOR mandatory vacation!”
        I took the bait and ran with it (to mix metaphors) reading of course, “I am FOR mandatory vaccination!” and I was promptly, smugly and condescendingly slapped down and “put in my place”. Nobody found it the least bit “funny” that I had misread the meme (which of course was the very AIM of the meme, the humor residing in this confusion), but every one was shocked and “offended” by my reaction.

        I humbly recognized my painfully embarassing mistake but then went on to ask the offended parties what they really thought about mandatory so-called vaccinations.

        Crickets.

        It taught me a whole lot about Facebook, this world-wide Asch conformity experiment transforming people into unthinking, “like”-seeking, politically-correct, emotionally-driven meme machines whose effects then spill over into “real life”. (you know the social credit system is inevitable when you’ve got a population hooked on “likes”!)

        For my consolation, I sent the meme to a friend telling him the story and he said that he too had read “I am FOR mandatory vaccination” three times before reading it correctly.

        Which means that these memes going around Facebook and Twitter are like Rorschach tests, (I outlined my own interpretation of the tweet you posted) baiting and igniting the emotions of the readers cognitive biases and rather than stimulating discussion and debate, create conformity to camps and echo chambers, generating misunderstanding, division and fury.

        As Marshal McLuhan said, medium IS the message.

        and that was the end of my 8-month experience with Facebook.

  33. cat says:

    James Corbett’s indepth analysis of this one angle of deep state infiltration – cognitive infiltration in the alt media – is superb, but he writes as if Sunstein’s tactics are the totality of the infiltration agenda.

    Corbett is protected because he works alone and can by and large control his operation – as well as this analysis by keeping the focus on the narrow domain of “alternative media.”

    However, for grassroots activists working with all manner of entrants from the public at large and social media predominates much of the organizing, Corbett fails to address, much less offer, best practices and strategies to expose, if not repel, overt and covert bad actors and malicious activity.

    Unexperienced readers are left with the impression to just ignore all that chatter and move on. Hold the high ground and do your work. This is along the lines of what I call the do-gooder derangement syndrome: thinking just doing your own good work and keeping your nose clean is all that’s needed. I have seen numerous wrong-minded actions result from such a naïve, solipsistic strategy.

    I was hoping Corbett would address the balance between ignoring the infiltrators so as not to get consumed by negative paranoia versus being so hyper informed of very real dangers that it impedes day-to-day activism – if not produces a psychic burden of how to actually thwart the infiltrators.

    For some reading his analysis, the ideas will be a big “aha,” and the prescription to go about your own business a grateful relief. For those of us who are very clear that State agents are fomenting all manner of disorder and distrust, more developed advice from thought leaders like Corbett would have been welcome.

    But let’s face it, armchair activists have very different perspectives and M.O.s than actual boots-on-the-ground activists. So ultimately, Corbett’s excellent but limited analysis is fine. I just wish he had more strongly made clear that whole other strategies are in order for grassroots activists operating in the public domain, and to not apply his analysis across the board to real-life activist milieus.
