Not only CNN…

ABC News Tries to Pass Gun Range Videos As Combat Footage From Syria!

ABC news just tried to pass footage obtained from the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot as combat footage out of Syria.

Since ABC got caught with their pants down, they removed the video.

It is available HERE. Watch closely in the foreground and you can see a few phones capturing the action. Do they do that in combat? I think not…

  1. The ABC footage cut off the bottom part where you can see the audience so it is not like it was just a mistake, they intentionally edited it.

    Not to be out done, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams confirmed the authenticity of the clip by saying his helicopter was shot in that attack in Syria . . . or Kentucky . . . whichever one you are willing to believe.

  2. My question is, they got caught with this one, how many other fake videos of war or atrocities have been shown by the media in the past to manipulate the nation and their opinion on foreign policy.

    This has been making me a little crazy of late because I don’t like being lied to and the revelations about how corrupt the media is (and Likely has always been) how corrupt the deep state is, and we don’t even know how deep the corruption goes and now that the mask if slipping, my question What else will we find out? What else have we been led to believe to be true that was BS? This type of stuff didn’t just start because Trump was elected. Maybe I don’t want to go there because it might be too much but eventually we are going to find out more about how we have been manipulated.

    i know I sound crazy and I don’t like thinking this way but it is starting to add up.

    Red Pill, Blue Pill, it IS a manipulation, the news media is responsible for a huge part of this. But humans have been using this for a long time, bluffing it may be called in poker, disinformation in other cases, how about those big rubber inflatable tanks in the UK to fool the Germans during WW2?

    Well now it’s fine tuned and aimed at civilians. BUT there are many “watchdogs” out there that can catch them at their game, the advantage now is the internet and how fast the information about the disinformation is distributed.

    It IS a rating game, who gets the ratings, gets the advertisers, gets the money.

    The cropping and editing of the video is downright dishonest. Yes there is trouble in that part of the world, but why make it seem worse. Oh wait a minute, because POTUS decided to withdraw troops this is happening, lets find a video that is obscure and edit it to make it look like it just happened over there caused by our POTUS.

    See the agenda? See the Band wagon?

    Don’t get crazy over it, be smart or smarter than them, take what they tell you or show you with a whole shaker, (rather than a grain), of salt. This “stuff” has been going on since as far back as I can remember, before the Vietnam war. I too, have just realized what is the agenda.

    Pass the word, do it without getting excited, do it convincingly, if they don’t believe you, leave them with a “well we will see” and move on.

  4. One issue is whether the person who recorded the video can sue ABC for copyright infringement.

  5. You’re all skirting the issue here. That is, plainly, what do we DO about all this.

    Clearly this is unacceptable. Clearly this has to stop. But as we see, it hardly is limited to the media; it’s everywhere. The elite have been bamboozling the folk for eons. The folk fought back with voting for Trump.

    You can be cynical, as the author of the article Dime quoted in another post, or you can believe Trump believes – in the country, in the people, in industry, in competition. But however you wish to carve it up, things are going badly, and something not only HAS to happen but WILL happen. ?How do you clean out the stable.

    It should be clear the Intelligence/LEO aspects of the Federal government need serious weeding. ?Do you wholesale fire people. ?Do you “investigate” people (beginning to sound like a communist regime). Recollect that after the Revolutionary War there was widespread unrest and attack (physical) against the Royalists. ?How do we purge the nation of Democrats.

    We need to purge the Republicans too.

    Yes, but they aren’t at the top of the list – yet. When your house is flooded, the first thing you do is throw out the big trash, then work your way down the line until you are finally cleaning the residual stuff.

    Three years ago I would have agreed with this, but not now. In my mind, Republicans and Democrats are just different sides of the same coin—it’s time to break with the binary system.

    Shame on you.

    Whether you like it or don’t, our system is binary.   If not for Trump, Hillary would be your president and you would never know that the Deep State had been illegally spying on the Trump Campaign (and probably other campaigns).   If not for Trump, America would be on the road to serfdom and the complete collapse of Western Civilization (because America is indispensable to Western Civilization).

    And half the voters are poised to vote for the Anti-American Party, the New Communist Party, the Anti-Christian Party, the Party of Death.   It will be a close thing.   We need all hands pulling hard for President Trump.

    And we need all hands pulling hard for Republicans at every level.   There is no alternative.   To do nothing is to help the Enemy.

    I say this notwithstanding that I agree that the GOP is a huge letdown, a big disappointment, an unworthy party.

    As they say, fool me once, shame on you, fool me 1000 times, I’m a complete idiot. I’m not playing the Republican idiot anymore. I’ve been a supporter of Trump since day one and I will continue to support him (for what it’s worth, Trump is not a Republican). And as good as Trump is, I don’t think for a second that he (or anyone else for that matter) is going to turn this ship around. I’m afraid that we’re not going to be able to simply vote our way out of the mess that’s been created this time. I have no interest in going over the cliff in second gear with the Republicans as opposed to going over the cliff in fifth gear with the Democrats. I wish you good luck with the Republican party, but I’m out.

  12. Yes, children, that is how Western Civilization collapsed.

    Those were good times, comfortable times.   I am sorry your life is one of hard times.

    Our people were too spiritually exhausted to defend their own culture.

  13. One must have hope, else all is lost.

    It is not to say that we will win, nor even that we will see victory as we slide into death’s grip. But if we fail to strive there WILL be no victory, and our children will be slaves.

    We are, indeed, still on the road to serfdom, but the pace has slowed with Trump. It is on us now – to think, to plan, to help new candidates gain office who will support the original vision of this nation, so different from all others. Jordan, Meadows, and his band are trying; they lack enough supporters to make the changes that are needed. WE need to vote in those supporters.

    Else we either fall into chains or fight physically – and the latter is very terrifying to contemplate. SO many will die.

    LOL! My life is actually quite comfortable, thank you very much! I have a loving family, a fantastic job with outstanding colleagues and I make great money—I have no material want. They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different result—this is why I do not look to the Republican party or the conservative movement in general for answers—they have none. Actually, if truth be told, I do have a plan to save the country (and Western Civilization while I’m at it). The problem is that no one would go for my plan because it would be viewed (quite rightly) as too extreme. I’m afraid that the system we have is beyond repair and the best that we can hope for is to rebuild on the ashes once Western Civilization has been destroyed by its own stupidity. I don’t like this any more than you do, but it is the reality of our situation. But good luck with the Republican party! I won’t stand in your way!

    I have no interest in slowing things down—I want a radical change in trajectory—I want to see reversal. What’s that? That’s not how things work? Well, I can’t say I disagree.

    I’ve been convinced for  a long time that what we’re dealing with is a scaling problem.  As in engineering, you need different solutions at different scales: if you take something that works perfectly and try to make it twice as big, it will almost certainly fail in all kinds of ways—most obviously due to the cube-square law, but also due to properties of materials, inertia of components, time lags across the larger dimensions, etc.

    Social systems are no different.  What works in a family doesn’t scale to a hunter-gatherer band, tribe, village, city, small country, large country, or empire.  At each scaling up the previous structure breaks down in various ways and has to be replaced with a new one.  Unfortunately, and the framers of the U.S. constitution were well aware of this, with each scaling up the liberty and autonomy of the individual tends to erode in favour of centralised authority.  This is why self-government works well and is most sustainable only up to the level of the city-state, and when you go beyond that there is an inevitable slide toward centralisation of power and tyranny.

    Federalism is proposed as a solution to the scaling problem.  The idea is to break up the large polity into a number of largely autonomous parts which can benefit from the greater freedom of their smaller scale.  In Switzerland, for example (at least traditionally, this is eroding), the federal government’s responsibilities are limited to national defence and foreign policy (and a few other things like the post office).  It collects the smallest amount of tax from citizens, and does not set tax policy: it simply collects a fraction of taxation assessed by the cantons (states).  The cantons (26 in a country of 8 million people) build and maintain infrastructure, assess and collect taxes, operate their health care systems, and regulate businesses operating within them.  The communes (villages and cities) handle infrastructure within their territory, education, land management, and administration of elections for all levels.  Communes set their own tax level, which is collected by the canton and remitted to them: taxation varies widely from commune to commune and canton to canton and people vote with their feet.  The typical citizen pays the largest fraction of their tax to the commune, the second largest to the canton, and the smallest to the confederation (federal government).  This means that, except in the big cities, the people who set the tax rates and spend the money are people you know and see all the time.

    This is, I believe, how the U.S. was intended to work, and pretty much did work until around 1912.  (In the U.S. the states were more powerful compared to local government than a Swiss canton to a commune, but in both cases the federal government was small, weak, and mostly concerned with defence and foreign affairs.)

    Once a federal system has been co-opted by the central power and subordinate governments turned into subservient administrative districts of the imperial capital, I don’t see any peaceful way to reverse the process from the bottom up.  The only real hope is for the structure at the top to crack up under its own “internal contradictions” as happened with the Soviet Union, which allowed many of its captive components to spin off in their own directions (for better or for worse).

    Take a look at the Republican Party.   It is far more conservative now than it was a decade ago, and the GOP of 2009 was more conservative than the GOP of 1999.

    So, I expect a better result.   It is slow in coming, which is why we have to push them so hard.

    Indeed.  I’ve long been a fan of Luther Martin.

    I need to read this book. This is a great synopsis.

    The author is an unabashed libertarian, and considers Martin’s diagnosis of how the Constitution would inevitably lead to the concentration of power in a Federal City (which his fellow Anti-Federalist George Clinton foresaw, “would be the asylum of the base, idle, avaricious, and ambitious” [p. xiii]) to the detriment of individual liberty as prescient. One wishes that Martin had been listened to, while sympathising with those who actually had to endure his speeches.
