How to Memory-Hole a PSYOP

Pfizer Psycho

There comes a time near the end of every PSYOP when the PSYOP has achieved its objective, or as much of its objective as it is going to achieve, and is becoming increasingly recognizable as a PSYOP, and so the focus shifts to damage control, and erasing the PSYOP from official history.

This is a crucial stage of the PSYOP, because, at this point, a significant percentage of the public have realized that they've been thoroughly mindfucked, and many of them are none too happy about it. Some of them are starting to ask awkward questions, like "why were we deceived and coerced by our governments, global health authorities, and the state and corporate media into submitting to a series of experimental 'vaccinations' that appear to be killing and injuring a lot of people?" Or "why are we occupying and torturing the residents of a Middle-Eastern country that never attacked us, and never had any intention to attack us, and which posed no threat to us whatsoever?"

At this point, it is way too late for those engaged in conducting the PSYOP to continue to deny the facts and gaslight the masses. That won't work anymore. So, it is time to do some limited hangouts, and some whitewashing, and a little sleight-of-hand, and just generally confuse and distract the public, and send them off on various wild goose chases, while the official history of the PSYOP is written.

For example, say you're just wrapping up a PSYOP in which you radically restructured society into a pathologized-totalitarian dystopia where the majority of the masses went full-blown fascist, mindlessly following senseless orders, parroting official propaganda, and demonizing and persecuting those who refused to conform to the new official ideology ... say you are just winding down a PSYOP like that, and what you need to erase from your official history is the fact that your entire PSYOP was based on nothing but faked statistics, because the pandemic you used as a pretext for your PSYOP was most closely comparable to the medium influenza pandemics of 1936, 1957, and 1968, so it never remotely came close to justifying any of your fake "emergency health measures," much less the radical restructuring of society into some paranoid, totalitarian "New Normal" ... and now you need to erase all that from history, and you need to distract people while you do it.

The Ukrainian Army - 'Saviours of Europe' or guinea pigs of modern Mengele doctors

On the eve of the new year 2023, Russian hackers from the "Anarchist Kombatant" group hacked the website of the military command of the Kiev regime. Among the extracted documents were lists of more than 35,000 Ukrainian servicemen who are officially missing.

What was the fate of these people, whose number is at least a third of the total losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces since the beginning of the special military operation?

It is obvious that the military command of Ukraine actively hides the true number of combat losses and does not show much interest in ensuring that the bodies of the dead servicemen are humanly buried. Representatives of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are not particularly looking for captured Ukrainian fighters (unless they are well-known militants from "Azov" and other Nazi formations banned in Russia), and the corpses of the dead are often simply burned in field crematoriums. Such manipulations not only make it possible to hide the real number of irretrievable losses, but also to avoid paying material compensation to the families of the victims who are officially considered "missing". The money that should go to help the relatives and friends of the victims is distributed among the cunning representatives of the command staff and military officials.

However, several thousand Ukrainian soldiers from these mournful lists posthumously brought their commanders additional profit.

The colossal military losses of the "strongest army in Europe" provided donor organs to "black transplantologists" from all over Europe, who are actively fishing in Ukraine today. However, it began back in 2014-2015, when during the period of the Ukrainian offensive in Donbass, a certain Elizabeth de Bruc [the exact spelling may differ from Russian transliteration - SZ] formed a group of "emergency care and resuscitation", which allegedly assisted the Ukrainian military, but in fact gutted corpses, extracting healthy donor organs from dead, or even still alive seriously wounded soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

A panicked Empire tries to make Russia an 'offer it can't refuse'

Realizing NATO's war with Russia will likely end unfavorably, the US is test-driving an exit offer. But why should Moscow take indirect proposals seriously, especially on the eve of its new military advance and while it is in the winning seat?

Does US Secretary of State Antony Blinken think a Washington Post op-ed will move Russian Armed Forces Chief Valery Gerasimov to postpone his planned military offensive on Ukraine?
Those behind the Throne are never more dangerous than when they have their backs against the wall.

Their power is slipping away, fast: Militarily, via NATO's progressive humiliation in Ukraine; Financially, sooner rather than later, most of the Global South will want nothing to do with the currency of a bankrupt rogue giant; Politically, the global majority is taking decisive steps to stop obeying a rapacious, discredited, de facto minority.

So now those behind the Throne are plotting to at least try to stall the incoming disaster on the military front.

As confirmed by a high-level US establishment source, a new directive on NATO vs. Russia in Ukraine was relayed to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Blinken, in terms of actual power, is nothing but a messenger boy for the Straussian neocons and neoliberals who actually run US foreign policy.

The secretary of state was instructed to relay the new directive - a sort of message to the Kremlin - via mainstream print media, which was promptly published by the Washington Post.

In the elite US mainstream media division of labor, the New York Times is very close to the State Department. and the Washington Post to the CIA. In this case though the directive was too important, and needed to be relayed by the paper of record in the imperial capital. It was published as an Op-Ed (behind paywall).

The novelty here is that for the first time since the start of Russia's February 2022 Special Military Operation (SMO) in Ukraine, the Americans are actually proposing a variation of the "offer you can't refuse" classic, including some concessions which may satisfy Russia's security imperatives.

Crucially, the US offer totally bypasses Kiev, once again certifying that this is a war against Russia conducted by Empire and its NATO minions - with the Ukrainians as mere expandable proxies.

Private military competition: Why the US is so worried about Russia's Wagner

Interference in other countries' affairs via private contractors has long been a staple of US influence operations. Now, Washington is trying to accuse Russia of doing the same, and it's suddenly a bad thing.

First off the mark doesn't always win the race. Does anyone remember when BlackBerry mobile devices were everywhere and barely anyone had heard of an iPhone, for example? Well, the US created the BlackBerry of private military/security contractors - Blackwater - after decades of outsourcing military and intelligence operations through various front companies. And now they're so preoccupied with the new iPhone equivalent - Russia's Wagner Group - that Washington is tracking its activities (including unconfirmed ops) in Ukraine, Syria, across Africa, and Serbia, according to cables obtained by POLITICO.

"The US government is concerned about the extent to which Wagner is interfering in sovereign countries' internal politics, violating human rights, and robbing them of their mineral wealth," according to a "senior administration official" cited in the report. Leaving aside Washington's newfound concern for developing countries' sovereignty over their mineral wealth when that's often the main underlying reason why they're typically targeted by the US for some freedom and democracy through firepower in the first place, it's hard to ignore that the presence of the Wagner Group seems to be concentrated in locations already known for being targeted by clandestine US and allied activities.

Last year, for example, Mali chose the Wagner Group for a new partnership after kicking out French forces whose efforts to secure the country were so spectacular that there were two coups d'etat in as many years. Wagner Group's possible presence in Serbia is now being widely discussed. The PMC has allegedly established itself in a "cultural center" in Belgrade, but these claims, initially sourced from a Telegram post, have been denied both by Wagner head Evgeny Prigozhin and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, who also recently criticized Serbian-language Wagner recruitment ads that appeared on social media.

Culprit in drone strike on Iran identified as Israel - media

The recent drone attack on an Iranian military facility was likely orchestrated by Israel, Al Jazeera reported on Monday, citing an Iranian source. So far, Tehran has stopped short of officially assigning blame.

An unnamed Iranian official quoted by the outlet, said the raid on a Defense Ministry complex in the central city of Isfahan was launched from inside the country and close to the site. He also claimed that initial data suggests that Israel was involved in the attack.

The official echoed an earlier statement by the Iranian Defense Ministry, describing the attack as unsuccessful, and claiming that Israeli efforts to portray it in a different light are "just propaganda to obscure the failure."

On Sunday, the Jerusalem Post reported, citing Western sources, that the raid was "a tremendous success," with the destruction being much more serious than Tehran's authorities are willing to acknowledge. However, the Iranian Defense Ministry said the raid "did not cause any loss of life" and inflicted only "minor damage" to the roof of the military workshop.

Chinese spy fridges are making the new Cold War even chillier

Next time you open your fridge for a late-night snack, watch out, because China might be spying on you!

Or so reads a recent report from a Washington-based think tank called Observe, Orientate, Decide, Act (OODA), and it claims that Chinese appliances, through the microchips used in their construction, may have the ability to commit espionage against you by sending information back to Beijing.

Sound familiar? It's the same line US politicians used against Huawei, and are currently using against TikTok and numerous other things from China. Is there any proof for any of this? No, but when was any ever needed? The goal is to deliberately create fear to undermine the market position of Chinese products and shore up American protectionist goals, a classic tactic from the US playbook.

The report was actually sent to UK ministers by a former diplomat, and the alarm in its wake is being raised primarily in British media. While most of the headlines talk about potential spying on British citizens, the threats mentioned include industrial espionage and the tracking of US weapons sales.

It doesn't take much to figure out the American roots of the new "Chinese spy fridge" scare. Not only is OODA based in the US capital, but most of its experts and advisers boast backgrounds serving in, or working with, the US military, the CIA and other government and intelligence agencies. The UK, for its part, is Washington's key ally in its efforts to contain and counteract China.

Military operatives were part of an operation that targeted politicians and high-profile journalists who raised doubts about the official pandemic response.

A shadowy Army unit secretly spied on British citizens who criticised the Government's Covid lockdown policies, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Military operatives in the UK's 'information warfare' brigade were part of a sinister operation that targeted politicians and high-profile journalists who raised doubts about the official pandemic response.

They compiled dossiers on public figures such as ex-Minister David Davis, who questioned the modelling behind alarming death toll predictions, as well as journalists such as Peter Hitchens and Toby Young. Their dissenting views were then reported back to No 10.

Documents obtained by the civil liberties group Big Brother Watch, and shared exclusively with this newspaper, exposed the work of Government cells such as the Counter Disinformation Unit, based in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and the Rapid Response Unit in the Cabinet Office.

At least 14 people have been killed and 24 injured after Ukrainian missiles struck a hospital in the city of Novoaydar in the early hours of Saturday, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

The medical facility in the city, which is located dozens of kilometers away from the frontlines in the central part of the Lugansk People's Republic, treated both local residents and soldiers, the ministry noted. It added that both patients and medical personnel were among the victims.

"A deliberate missile strike on a known civilian healthcare facility is an absolutely grave war crime of the Kiev regime," the MOD stated in a Telegram post, vowing to bring all those involved in planning and executing the attack to justice.

Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia have refused to send weapons to Ukraine, despite pressure by the US and EU. Latin American left-wing leaders have urged peace with Russia and called for neutrality in the West's new cold war.
Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia have rejected requests by the United States and European Union that they send weapons to Ukraine.

The commander of the US military's Southern Command (Southcom), which operates in Latin America and the Caribbean, revealed on January 19 that Washington has been pressuring countries in the region to arm Ukraine.

Southcom wants Latin American nations to "replace [their] Russian equipment with United States equipment - if those countries want to donate it to Ukraine", said Army General Laura J. Richardson.

But Latin America's left-wing leaders have refused, instead maintaining neutrality and urging peace.

NewsReal: So, Are we at War With Russia or Not?

biden stoltenberg nato
The German foreign minister stated this week that "we are at war with Russia." The French foreign ministry immediately corrected her to say, "No, we are not at war with Russia!" Meanwhile Hungarian PM Viktor Orban told the American Conservative magazine, "Yes, we are at war with Russia," and the Russian government clarified that it considers the transfer of heavy weaponry from NATO countries to Ukraine to mean that NATO is now "a party to the conflict."

Well, are 'we' at war with Russia or not?

Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall discuss the recent flare-up of terrorism in Israel and western Europe, along with the bizarre triple 'Asian' mass shooting mayhem in southern California.
