Late last year, a Gallup poll showed that Americans’ trust in the mainstream media has fallen to its second lowest level on record. Only seven percent of Americans responded that they have a “great deal” of trust in the media.
That loss of trust has been well-earned by the mainstream media, and it explains the massive growth of independent media and alternative voices on social media. The response to the rise of independent media voices has been a rush to “cancel” any voice outside the accepted mainstream narrative.
Citizens of the Soviet Union would read manipulated media like Pravda not because the regime reported facts, but because truth was hidden between the lines of what was reported and what was not reported. That seems to be where we are in the US today.
Last week an extraordinary article appeared in, of all places, NBC News, reporting that the US intelligence community is knowingly feeding information it does not believe accurate to the US mainstream media for the American audience to consume.
In other words, the article reports that the US “deep state” admits to being actively engaged in lying to the American people in the hopes that it can manipulate public opinion
According to the NBC News article, “multiple US officials acknowledged that the US has used information as a weapon even when confidence in the accuracy of the information wasn’t high. Sometimes it has used low-confidence intelligence for deterrent effect…”
Readers will recall the shocking headlines that Russia was prepared to use chemical weapons in Ukraine, that China would be providing military equipment to Russia, that Russian President Putin was being fed misinformation by his advisors, and more.
All of these were churned out by the CIA to be repeated in the American media even though they were known to be false. It was all about, as one intelligence officer said in the article, “trying to get inside Putin’s head.”
That may have been the goal, but what the CIA actually did was get inside America’s head with false information meant to shape public perception of the conflict. They lied to propagandize us in favor of the Biden Administration’s narrative.
Those pushing the “Russiagate” hoax through the Trump years claimed that the goal of “Russian disinformation” was to undermine Americans’ trust in our government, media, and other institutions. Isn’t it ironic that the CIA itself has done more than the Russians to undermine Americans’ faith in the media by feeding false stories to establish a particular narrative among the American people?
After the Bay of Pigs disaster, President Kennedy has been quoted as wanting “to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” That didn’t work out too well for him. As Senate Majority Chuck Schumer famously told Rachel Maddow in 2020, responding to the-President Trump’s criticism of the CIA, “let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
As more information about the activities of the US Intelligence Community in trying to bring down Trump come out, it appears that, for once, Schumer was right.
It’s time to revisit President Kennedy’s post-Bay of Pigs wish. The CIA using lies to propagandize the American people toward war with Russia is just one of thousands of reasons to scatter a million pieces of that agency to the wind.

People need to wake up and see that they have lied about almost everything throughout history…This comes from longer than a 100 year period…This way of lying comes from forever…The history books will have to be re-written to pass us the true information about true war endings, and beginnings and who provoked them to happen on purpose and so on, finances, history truths about many different countries being attacked for the sole purpose of robbing them of their land or their richesses…Also how people of every country have been manipulated to believe in this corrupt system which is being implemented similarly everywhere by the Khazarian Mafia that originated in Asia and extended to what today is Ukraine….
I agree that the CIA is no good and does love war. That said they have the congress under there thumb.
But what Russia is doing killing all the people in Ukraine is wrong and must be stopped!
Were was Ron when he was in Congress I am old enough to remember he never talk about CIA as a congressman. I guess you get more guts when your done screwing the American people as a congressman.
They’re not. They’re only killing the army. Ukr is killing their civilians to blame Russia
You are right about that and they are also getting rid of bio-weapons…They created them for this fake virus and to keep it on going so they could sell lethal vaccines that are killing young, old and children…They want to kill the majority of human beings and only leave about 500 millions as their slaves…This needs to be said and not be afraid of the truth for it is the only thing that will help us…Knowing the truth gives us an advantage against them…I tell people this truth that I have known for quite a while and other so many lies being told to the people about almost everything…I have been mistreated because of this verbally (written), but it matters not to me for this is way too serious and important to think of myself only…
Azov neo Nazis military impersonating Russian soldiers are the ones killing Ukranias
The lied about that too…Russia is not killing Ukranians, Russia is there bombing the bio-weapons accumulated in that country by the Khazarian Mafia…The president of Ukraine is a criminal and a thief…He bought a mansion in Miami, Fla., for 20 million or so and took 2 or more billions of dollars from the Ukranians…Russia is fighting this mafia since the times of before Christ…This is more serious that most people realize and this mafia is headed by deep state’s oligarchs like the Rothchilds, Soros, the Rockefellers and so many others in very high places economically and politically…The Cia and those corrupt in government want people to think Russia is the bad one…Those real bad ones are very close to home…Remember they are disinforming people so they think Biden is doing a great job…Hah…He is an impostor…He stole the election with the help of deep state and their minions…
