The U.S. government uses propaganda to get the people to tell them to do what they are constitutionally forbidden from doing.

    The US government is doing this as for as the war is concerned, war for oil is not the way to go!

    Welcome to Amerika, where the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land has its evangelists exploit erroneous propaganda to make up the week-minded's agenda based on intentially limited and biased facts.

    An independent press serves as a check against itself. There isn't really an objective press -- a 'newspaper' is supposed to, at least, attempt to report daily events impartially, and there are a few writers who are good at delivering both sides of an argument. But newspapers are owned by people, run by people, written by people -- every newspaper reflects the bias of its owners and editors. That is to be expected, and as far as history goes, that is the way it has always been, free press or not.

    What gives propaganda its weight comes from the mindset of the 'audience.' Condition people to 'believe' and to 'trust' and they will not question or condemn.

    Does a 5% ownership of the Washington Post give any pull in what topics will be covered and editorialized? Foreign ownership of the American media is significant. With time and discernment, one can determine the political agendas of the various media companies -- the majority of which push globalist agendas, i.e. national socialism for the world under the UN.

    The real war is for the American mind!
