“Who’s them?”–The Lion, asking his companions about the soldiers marching into the fortress of the Wicked Witch of the West in ‘The Wizard of Oz’
                             Do you know who (which specific person) is the exact source of information you read or hear? Like the Lion, do you ask “who’s them?” before you accept information as being reliably true or false?
               Information you read or hear is often from an unspecified source such as “the authorities” or “the experts” or “government sources”.  If the source of the information isn’t precise, it’s worse than worthless.  It may be entirely contrived or purposefully misguiding.
               Before you believe what you read in the newspaper do you determine the name of the reporter and the editor who dreamed up the story? Do you take a minute to figure out what their vested interest might be in writing the story? The story could be accurately reported; or it could be a completely fictional, spin-doctored fairy tale. It could be an outright fabrication, an intentionally destructive lie. It could be a paid-for cover-up of a hidden agenda, or merely an advertisement to sell you something.
               The point is simple: just make sure the road map of the Yellow Brick Road you saw on television wasn’t drawn by the Wicked Witch of the West before you go skipping off into a deep, dark forest full of Lions and Tigers and Bears and Flying Monkeys!
               Our planet is overrun with self-appointed “authorities” on nearly any subject you can imagine. These so-called “authorities” do not have the right to evaluate information or make decisions for you. Movie or art critics are a good example. The only qualification a “critic” has for stating a viewpoint about a movie or work of art is that they are critical. Your viewpoint and opinion of a movie or work of art is the only important viewpoint.
               Likewise, just because your mother, the Pope, the President, a psychiatrist (or any other mind-police), a television talk show host, the National Scandal Rag or the Good Witch of the North tells you something is true, doesn’t make it true. Newspapers, television, politicians and preachers are notorious for spewing huge volumes of very convincing false information which serves highly dubious or nefarious purposes. Usually, the only purpose being served is their own.”

The 1997 film “Wag The Dog”, (see my Blog post — https://lawrencerspencer.com/2011/05/02/wagging-the-rabid-dog/) reveals (satirically) how the “news” on television is created to control and manipulate YOUR MIND.  When we turn on our TV set or go to the movies, we  are witnessing an artificially created reality controlled by the CIA.  Why do they go to all the trouble and expense to control “The Media”?  They want to OWN YOU!  The fastest and simplest way to “own” you, is to control everything you think is “reality”.  If you want to “free your mind”, stop watching TV.  Then stop reading newspapers, magazines and listening to the opinions of other people, like me….   Eventually, you will discover that you have time to THINK YOUR OWN THOUGHTS.  The truth is within you.  Reality is what YOU create for yourself.  Learn more about the role of the CIA in the quotations below:

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the US public believes is false.”
-William J. Casey, 1981.

“The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”
– William Colby, former CIA director

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”
– William Casey, CIA Director (from first staff meeting, 1981)

“Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the State.”
– James Angleton, head of CIA counter intelligence from 1954-1974

“I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in forty-seven, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo.”
– Harry S. Truman

“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.”
– J. Edgar Hoover, ex-FBI director on the New World Order conspiracy

“If the American people knew what we have done, they would string us up from the lamp posts.”
– George H. W. Bush

” I will splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.”
– John F. Kennedy

“Fifty men have run America, and that’s a high figure.”
– Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, in the July 26th, l936 issue of The New York Times

“There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar weekly salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
– John Swinton, former New York Times Chief of Staff
