Government is Replacing Religion, According to Researchers | The Daily Bell

April 21, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

 

“Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people” -Karl Marx

A group of researchers agrees. They think they have proven that if you have a government you don’t need religion. They concluded that “religiosity” wanes as people get more help from government programs. They think that people replace spiritual help from God with tangible help from the government.

Researchers call it an exchange model of religion: If people can get what they need from the government (be it health care, education or welfare) they’re less likely to turn to a divine power for help, according to the theory.

AS WAR DRUMS BEAT FOR SYRIA, REMEMBER, LIES AND PROPAGANDA STARTED NEARLY EVERY WAR IN US HISTORY | The Daily Bell

April 14, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

 

War is one of the most primitive and senseless manifestations of the human experience, so naturally, most sane people with families, ambitions and kind hearts want nothing to do with such things. Unfortunately, as we are seeing with the Syrian escalation, governments thrive on war, as it gives them a pressing excuse to grab more power and take extrajudicial measures—both at home and abroad.

To get around the obstacle of public opinion, governments have an extensive history of lying their way into war. This is hard to believe for people who think that government has their best interest in mind, but it is something that rulers have been doing since the beginning of time. In the modern United States, people are led to believe that the establishment accidentally flounders its way into war with the good intentions of protecting the country from harm or liberating an ally in distress.

World War III: The False Narrative that Fuels Conflict in Syria and Beyond | The Daily Bell

April 12, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

The timing is fit for a movie plot climax!

Just as Trump announced intentions to get out of Syria, Assad did something unspeakable. According to Assad’s opposition, the Syrian government “once again” used chemicals weapons on civilians.

At a time when the war is almost won for Assad, he decided to re-ignite international calls for his ouster by senselessly murdering about the same number of civilians the Las Vegas Shooter killed. Seems logical, right?

Well, there goes the Syrian exit!

The Irony of the Chinese Communist Party Pushing a U.S. Gun Ban | The Daily Bell

March 20, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

In a dark sort of hilarity, China state media says that the U.S. government must ban guns in order to protect human rights.

“The US will have to adopt gun control in the future,” the editorial said. “Gun ownership in China is strictly regulated, which helps reduce gun-related crimes and deaths. The US should learn from China and genuinely protect human rights. If the US does not control its guns, problems caused by firearms in the foreseeable future will continue plaguing US society.”

… “It’s inhumane for the US, which boasts about its human rights record, to turn a blind eye to gun violence, snub increasing calls for gun control and risk more innocent lives.”

DOD Blatantly Admits on Twitter it Works With Hollywood to Sell You War Propaganda | The Daily Bell

March 9, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

This week, the Department of Defense sent out an interesting Tweet where they openly admitted that they control how the US government is portrayed in Hollywood films.

While this is a fact that has been documented for many years, it is still largely overlooked by mainstream media sources, who insist that this idea is nothing more than a conspiracy theory. In the post, it was plainly admitted that the agency “works with Hollywood to ensure the military is portrayed correctly in films.”

980 days before election day 2020, Trump announced his intention to run for re-election.This is the perpetual election cycle that the United States lives in. And it is what Trump is good at. He is an entertainer. He is the perfect distraction. When the focus is on Trump, nothing substantial gets discussed.It would be better to talk about what is getting planted in the garden, which cryptocurrencies have potential, or whatever interests you and matters in your life. But people talk about what Trump wants to talk about.

Can You Protect Democracy by Destroying Free Speech? | The Daily Bell

February 21, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Political retribution for free speech is not a conspiracy theory. It happened. The IRS targeted people who donated to nonprofits for limited government causes.So you can understand why certain donors to non-profits want to keep their identities hidden. A non-profit sued the state of New York arguing that regulations requiring non-profits to disclose their donors create a “climate of fear” that could chill free speech. But the court rejected their argument. They ruled nonprofits must disclose their donors.

How You Can Distinguish Fake News from Real News, According to the Expert | The Daily Bell

February 15, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

 

In a recent Ted Talk, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson says it all started when Obama gave the media their marching orders.

Attkisson explains that when she followed the money, it led back to Google parent company Alphabet’s CEO Eric Schmidt. He volunteered to advise Hillary Clinton’s campaign and donated millions of dollars to her election bid.

They then got Media Matters involved, who reportedly convinced Facebook to support their “fake news” efforts. The idea was that if they could be the ones to label news fake, they would have ultimate control over the narrative. People would rely on Facebook and Google to curate real news and teach them what was fake news.

Some of it works and is widely adopted.The piece of the Bitcoin code created by the NSA is a hash function called SHA-256. SHA stands for Secure Hashing Algorithm.

While FBI Investigation Distracts, Bundy Ranch Case Quietly Dismissed | The Daily Bell

The FBI Trump investigation is perfect fodder for the mainstream media. It fits the right versus left paradigm like a glove.

It gives each side everything they desire. An enemy to hate. Someone to blame. And a good show.

For the right, the text messages between agents on the investigation team prove that there was an anti-Trump bias. They feel vindicated in their choice of Trump. If he wasn’t trying to drain the swamp, then why is the swamp trying so hard to drag him down?

Looking back over 2017, it’s hard not to see a year dominated by divisive opinions, downright insults, and the media echo chamber.

And while divisiveness, party loyalty, and a fair amount of insults are nothing new, that echo chamber deserves some scrutiny.

Otherwise, we are doomed to carry the mistakes of 2017 with us into 2018 without taking any of its lessons along for the trip.

The real story of online deception isn’t about the Russians. Sure, the Russians certainly have their own programs to disrupt and steer online discourse. But how quickly the public has forgotten about the U.S. government’s own internet troll program.Edward Snowden leaked documents used by the “Five Eyes” alliance of governments. The United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Australia–basically Oceania from 1984–get together to spy on each other’s citizens. That’s how they cleverly get around laws against spying on their own citizens.
