(Realist Report) Regular readers of my website are likely familiar with the terms false flag attack, PSYOP, and media fakery. However, I share a lot of my blog posts, videos, and other news articles on my Facebook page, where many people I know are likely not familiar with these terms, and what they mean. Also, with the criminals controlling our government and media blatantly staging false flag attacks and PSYOPS, often using media fakery, on what seems to be a daily basis, it’s important to clearly define these terms, and to provide some basic examples. I’d like to take a moment and explain these concepts in layman’s terms, so an average person who is not aware of how the government and media operate and collude together to deceive the American public is able to grasp and understand these basic ideas.
We’ll begin with the term false flag attack, or simply false flag, as in, “That was clearly a false flag!” The term false flag attack basically means an attack or operation carried out by one party, which is then blamed on another party.Wikipedia actually has a very good definition of a false flag attack, which I’d like to highlight for our discussion:
False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried during peace-time by civilian organisations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organisation behind an operation.
There are numerous examples of false flag attacks or events throughout history, especially recent history. For example, the Israeli Mossad, working in conjunction with the Jewish-owned mainstream mass media and Jewish criminals largely controlling the federal government of the United States and the city of New York, orchestrated the massive false flag events of 9/11, and pinned the blame on Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, and “Islamic extremists”. Since 9/11, there have been countless examples of rogue elements in the United States government and intelligence community, often colluding with the Israeli Mossad and other foreign intelligence agencies, setting up or otherwise framing Muslims for acts of terrorism in order to perpetuate the fraudulent meme of a “Global War on Terrorism”, “Islamic extremism”, and a “clash of civilizations”.
It’s also worth pointing out that the Jews have a long history of carrying out false flag attacks in order to demonize their enemies and justify warfare for public consumption. In fact, they’ve essentially mastered this technique of deceptive (and quite cowardly) warfare – militarily and psychologically. Jewish terrorists routinely dress up as Arabs or Muslims and commit acts of terrorism, which are then of course blamed on Muslims. Simply do a Google search for King David Hotel bombing or the Lavon Affair and you’ll find two perfect examples, or see here for an extensive list of Jewish crimes throughout history.
A complicit media is essential for staging successful false flag attacks. And, as the Jews themselves openly boast, the mainstream mass media is essentially controlled by organized Jewish political and financial interests. Is it any wonder they can get away with so much treachery, deceit, and chicanery?
PSYOPS are a bit more complicated than false flag events, and it’s important to understand that false flag events often have a PSYOP aspect to them. PSYOP, or PSYOPS for plural, stands for psychological operation(s). Psychological operations are primarily concerned with capturing or manipulating the psychology of a population, and can be carried out through a variety of channels – especially through the mass media. Major Ed Rouse (Ret.) explains the concept of a PSYOP quite well:
Psychological Operations or PSYOP are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of organizations, groups, and individuals. Used in all aspects of war, it is a weapon whose effectiveness is limited only by the ingenuity of the commander using it.
A proven winner in combat and peacetime, PSYOP is one of the oldest weapons in the arsenal of man. It is an important force protector/combat multiplier and a non-lethal weapons system.
Psychological Operations (PSYOP) or Psychological Warfare (PSYWAR) is simply learning everything about your target enemy, their beliefs, likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities. Once you know what motivates your target, you are ready to begin psychological operations.
Psychological operations may be defined broadly as the planned use of communications to influence human attitudes and behavior… to create in target groups behavior, emotions, and attitudes that support the attainment of national objectives. The form of communication can be as simple as spreading information covertly by word of mouth or through any means of multimedia.
A psychological warfare campaign is a war of the mind. Your primary weapons are sight and sound. PSYOP can be disseminated by face-to-face communication, audio visual means (television), audio media (radio or loudspeaker), visual media (leaflets, newspapers, books, magazines and/or posters). The weapon is not how its sent, but the message it carries and how that message affects the recipient.
9/11 was clearly a false flag event in that Israel and an international network of Jewish criminals organized and carried the operation out, pinning the blame on “Muslim extremists” with the assistance of a complicit mass media and federal government – but there are many PSYOP aspects to 9/11 as well.
A prime example that comes to mind is the BBC interview with a chief architect of 9/11, former Israeli Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Ehud Barak. Literally hours after Americans (and the world) were shown images – repeatedly and with dramatic effect – of (allegedly) hijacked airliners crashing into the World Trade Center buildings in New York City, Ehud Barak was on the BBC ready to implant the fraudulent and tyrannical “Global War on Terror” meme into the consciousness of a traumatized public. Here is the entire interview:
The idea of media fakery is very much related to the concept of PSYOPS previously discussed. I would generally define media fakery as the presentation of images or messages in the mass media that are either distorted, fabricated, false, or otherwise misleading in an effort to advance a covert agenda. Media fakery is often a central aspect of false flag events and PSYOPS, techniques which are themselves often implemented in combination with one another.
Before providing examples of media fakery, it’s important to point out that this concept has been discussed and reported on at length, even in the mainstream mass media. Consider what The Washington Post reported in 1999, a full two years before 9/11, in an article titled, “When Seeing and Hearing Isn’t Believing”:
[…] Most Americans were introduced to the tricks of the digital age in the movie Forrest Gump, when the character played by Tom Hanks appeared to shake hands with President Kennedy.
For Hollywood, it is special effects. For covert operators in the U.S. military and intelligence agencies, it is a weapon of the future.
“Once you can take any kind of information and reduce it into ones and zeros, you can do some pretty interesting things,” says Daniel T. Kuehl, chairman of the Information Operations department of the National Defense University in Washington, the military’s school for information warfare.
Digital morphing — voice, video, and photo — has come of age, available for use in psychological operations. PSYOPS, as the military calls it, seek to exploit human vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations to pursue national and battlefield objectives.
To some, PSYOPS is a backwater military discipline of leaflet dropping and radio propaganda. To a growing group of information war technologists, it is the nexus of fantasy and reality. Being able to manufacture convincing audio or video, they say, might be the difference in a successful military operation or coup.
Pentagon planners started to discuss digital morphing after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Covert operators kicked around the idea of creating a computer-faked videotape of Saddam Hussein crying or showing other such manly weaknesses, or in some sexually compromising situation. The nascent plan was for the tapes to be flooded into Iraq and the Arab world.
The tape war never proceeded, killed, participants say, by bureaucratic fights over jurisdiction, skepticism over the technology, and concerns raised by Arab coalition partners.
What if the U.S. projected a holographic image of Allah floating over Baghdad?
But the “strategic” PSYOPS scheming didn’t die. What if the U.S. projected a holographic image of Allah floating over Baghdad urging the Iraqi people and Army to rise up against Saddam, a senior Air Force officer asked in 1990?
According to a military physicist given the task of looking into the hologram idea, the feasibility had been established of projecting large, three-dimensional objects that appeared to float in the air.
But doing so over the skies of Iraq? To project such a hologram over Baghdad on the order of several hundred feet, they calculated, would take a mirror more than a mile square in space, as well as huge projectors and power sources.
And besides, investigators came back, what does Allah look like?
The Gulf War hologram story might be dismissed were it not the case that washingtonpost.com has learned that a super secret program was established in 1994 to pursue the very technology for PSYOPS application. The “Holographic Projector” is described in a classified Air Force document as a system to “project information power from space … for special operations deception missions.”
Voice-morphing? Fake video? Holographic projection? They sound more like Mission Impossible and Star Trek gimmicks than weapons. Yet for each, there are corresponding and growing research efforts as the technologies improve and offensive information warfare expands. […]
Video and photo manipulation has already raised profound questions of authenticity for the journalistic world. With audio joining the mix, it is not only journalists but also privacy advocates and the conspiracy-minded who will no doubt ponder the worrisome mischief that lurks in the not too distant future.
“We already know that seeing isn’t necessarily believing,” says Dan Kuehl, “now I guess hearing isn’t either.”
Or consider Professor George J. Stein’s 1995 essay, “Information Warfare”:
Information warfare, in its largest sense, is simply the use of information to achieve our national objectives. Like diplomacy, economic competition, or the use of military force, information in itself is a key aspect of national power and, more importantly, is becoming an increasingly vital national resource that supports diplomacy, economic competition, and the effective employment of military forces. Information warfare in this sense can be seen as societal-level or nation-to-nation conflict waged, in part, through the worldwide internetted and interconnected means of information and communication. […]
Information warfare, in its essence, is about ideas and epistemology- big words meaning that information warfare is about the way humans think and, more important, the way humans make decisions. And although information warfare would be waged largely, but not entirely, through the communication nets of a society or its military, it is fundamentally not about satellites, wires, and computers. It is about influencing human beings and the decisions they make. […]
A major new factor in information war is the worldwide infosphere of television and broadcast news. Information warfare at the strategic level is the “battle off the battlefield” to shape the political context of the conflict. It will define the new “battlespace.” We face an “integrated battlefield,” not in the usual sense of having a global positioning system (GPS) receiver in every tank or cockpit but in the Clausewitzian sense that war is being integrated into the political almost simultaneously with the battle. Many people suspect that the national command authorities (NCA) are in danger of becoming increasingly “reactive” to a “fictive” universe created by CNN, its various international competitors, or even a terrorist with a video camera. This media-created universe we live in is fictive rather than “fictional” because although what we see on CNN is “true,” it is just not the whole, relevant, or contextual truth. Nevertheless, this fictive universe becomes the politically relevant universe in which the government or the armed forces are supposed to “do something.”[…]
Fictive or fictional operational environments, then, whether mass-targeted or niche-targeted, can be generated, transmitted, distributed, or broadcast by governments or all sorts of players through increasingly diversified networks. […]
Let us take just one example of how current technologies could be used for strategic-level information warfare. If, say, the capabilities of already well-known Hollywood technologies to simulate reality were added to our arsenal, a genuinely revolutionary new form of warfare would become possible. Today, the techniques of combining live actors with computer-generated video graphicscan easily create a “virtual” news conference, summit meeting, or perhaps even a battle that would exist in “effect” though not in physical fact. Stored video images can be recombined or “morphed” endlessly to produce any effect chosen. This moves well beyond traditional military deception, and now, perhaps, “pictures” will be worth a thousand tanks. […]
Many Americans scoff at the idea of media fakery, however they are confronted with examples of it on a daily basis in the mainstream (and even alternative) news media. PSYOPS and media fakery are in fact the primary weapons the global power elite utilize to advance their tyrannical agenda in this day and age. And there have been countless examples throughout history of media fakery used to facilitate false flag events, PSYOPS, and other covert “Black Operations”.
For example, the much ballyhooed Zapruder film depicting the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was altered to conceal the manner in which our righteous and heroic 35th President was murdered by elements of the Israeli Mossad and CIA (primarily). This fact is no longer in dispute, despite what you may read on the internet.
More recent examples of media fakery include virtually all of the video images the public has been shown depicting the events of 9/11 in New York City – including both amateur video footage and official media video footage. The website September Clues has painstakingly documented and explained how the images the public was shown depicting the events in New York City on 9/11 were simply impossible, violating laws of physics and optics (and basic common sense). Again, this fact is no longer in dispute, despite what you may read on the internet.
September Clues and other independent researchers have also discovered that in addition to media fakery, scripted actors are being used to stage Hollywood-style PSYOPS on the American public. It is clear there were scripted actors involved in the staging of 9/11 (see here and here for good examples), but perhaps even more shockingly, actors have been used to manufacture recent events such as the Sandy Hook “shooting” Hoax.
For instance, Robbie Parker, the alleged father of Emilie Parker, a supposed victim of the Sandy Hook “shooting”, is clearly an actor reading a scripted sob story to sell the idea that there was indeed a shooting at the Sandy Hook elementary school. Here is Robbie Parker acting his part in the Sandy Hook “shooting” Hoax:
What I’ve tried to do here is provide the average American with a basic description of false flag events, PSYOPS, and media fakery, along with a few real life examples, in order to facilitate our collective understanding of how the government and media collude together to deceive the American public in an effort to advance their tyrannical agenda. More and more of us are starting to ask questions about what the government and media are telling and showing us, and I hope this article can serve as a guide for those unaware of or confused about these concepts. It is time we all started using our critical thinking abilities and stop blindly accepting the official government sanctioned version of the reality in which we live.
