When six mega-corporations who depend upon other mega-corporations, Wall Street banks and political parties for their revenue, control all of the news and information flowing to the masses, you have all the ingredients needed to control, influence and mold the opinions, tastes and ideas of the people. We are being manipulated by men who constitute the real government, hiding in the shadows and pulling the strings. Nothing reported by these six mega-corporation media mouthpieces for the oligarchs can be trusted. Their job is to coverup, subvert, and obscure the truth. And best of all, they have succeeded in convincing the people we are free and informed. Edward Bernays would be so proud.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

  1. It Wasn’t North Korea Or Russia: Sony Hack “Perpetrator” Said To Be Laid-Off, Disgruntled Employee

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 12/30/2014 08:15 -0500

    First it was, with “absolute certainly”, North Korea. Then, out of the blue, an even more ridiculous theory emerged about the origin of the Sony hackers: Russia. Now, we finally get the truth, and as it turns out it was neither of the abovementioned sovereign actors who had nothing better to do than to hack movie scripts and racist emails: it was Sony’s own disgruntled worker who was the source of the hack. According to Politico, FBI agents investigating the Sony Pictures hack were briefed Monday by a security firm that says its research points to laid-off Sony staff, not North Korea, as the perpetrator.”

    Researchers from the cyber intelligence company Norse have said their own investigation into the data on the Sony attack doesn’t point to North Korea at all and instead indicates some combination of a disgruntled employee and hackers for piracy groups is at fault.

    But… but just a week ago the FBI was so absolutely certain it was North Korea it released the following statement:

    Today, the FBI would like to provide an update on the status of our investigation into the cyber attack targeting Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE). In late November, SPE confirmed that it was the victim of a cyber attack that destroyed systems and stole large quantities of personal and commercial data. A group calling itself the “Guardians of Peace” claimed responsibility for the attack and subsequently issued threats against SPE, its employees, and theaters that distribute its movies.

    The FBI has determined that the intrusion into SPE’s network consisted of the deployment of destructive malware and the theft of proprietary information as well as employees’ personally identifiable information and confidential communications. The attacks also rendered thousands of SPE’s computers inoperable, forced SPE to take its entire computer network offline, and significantly disrupted the company’s business operations.

    After discovering the intrusion into its network, SPE requested the FBI’s assistance. Since then, the FBI has been working closely with the company throughout the investigation. Sony has been a great partner in the investigation, and continues to work closely with the FBI. Sony reported this incident within hours, which is what the FBI hopes all companies will do when facing a cyber attack. Sony’s quick reporting facilitated the investigators’ ability to do their jobs, and ultimately to identify the source of these attacks.

    As a result of our investigation, and in close collaboration with other U.S. Government departments and agencies, the FBI now has enough information to conclude that the North Korean government is responsible for these actions.

    So will the humiliation ever end? Or does Obama have to launch a “preemptive” nuclear first in addition to taking down North Korea’s internet and cell phone service before he too admits his false flag-based foreign policy is an epic disaster?

    To be sure, the FBI says it is standing by its conclusions, “but the security community says they’ve been open and receptive to help from the private sector throughout the Sony investigation.”

    Norse’s senior vice president of market development said that just the quickness of the FBI’s conclusion that North Korea was responsible was a red flag.

    “When the FBI made the announcement so soon after the initial hack was unveiled, everyone in the [cyber] intelligence community kind of raised their eyebrows at it, because it’s really hard to pin this on anyone within days of the attack,” Kurt Stammberger said in an interview as his company briefed FBI investigators Monday afternoon.

    He said the briefing was set up after his company approached the agency with its findings.

    Stammberger said after the meeting the FBI was “very open and grateful for our data and assistance” but didn’t share any of its data with Norse, although that was what the company expected.

    The FBI said Monday it is standing behind its assessment, adding that evidence doesn’t support any other explanations.

    Of course it is: otherwise it would look like a total idiot. It still will, but in time the FBI hopes nobody will remember this entire unfortunate embarrassing incident, and can just back away quietly with a small footnote explanation on page 18.

    “When the FBI made the announcement so soon after the initial hack was unveiled, everyone in the [cyber] intelligence community kind of raised their eyebrows at it, because it’s really hard to pin this on anyone within days of the attack,” Kurt Stammberger said in an interview as his company briefed FBI investigators Monday afternoon.

    Meanwhile, Norse is pretty adamant the FBI are a bunch of clowns:

    “Whenever we see some indicators or leads that North Korea may be involved, when we follow those leads, they turn out to be dead ends,” Stammberger said. “Do I think it’s likely that [officials] have a smoking gun? … We think that we would have seen key indicators by now in our investigation that would point to the North Koreans: We don’t see those data points. So if they’ve got them, they should share some of them at least with the community and make a more convincing case.”

    Bottom line: the hacker was a disgruntled employee, and the leaked email situation was promptly used by studio execs to dupe the idiot public into believing it was their sworn patriotic duty to watch a failed comedic flop, generating revenues of over $20 million for what would have been a total dud. Which is why expect none of this to get any media coverage.

    In the meantime, Obama almost launched another war over yet another video. So generally par for the course, bad pun intended.

    The humiliation, however, is that not only did North Korea troll Obama, it officially got the upper hand. End result, at least someone is having a laugh.


  2. Why are we so worried about the Sony hacking? The last I heard Sony was a Japanese company. The Japanese don’t seem to be to upset.

    For those Americans that lost personal information, to bad. Your choice to work for a foreign company.

    Let the Japanese deal with whomever hacked their company.

  3. With all the hoopla over Ebola, christian deaths in Syria etc it astounds me to find this information laid out in concise order and that anyone would !! FIND OUT !! that MARVEL is owned by Disney!!??!!
    No surprise these days given the rotten state of the state. I call it the Enron effect, shovel crap and call it gold, scream it long enough and people believe it, what next? Lead sold as precious metal?? HA HA HA!!

  4. obama, or whoever sits in the white house need hackers and evil empires messing with our internet.

    Gives them the reason to control, after we demand it of course.

  5. The lead story and outrage in the U.S. should be the banks/Wall St. signing off their toxic debt (derivatives fast trading mortgage backed securities etc. etc. etc. OFF on the U.S. taxpayer in their recent ‘BUDGET BILL’ Not a squeak from their politicians, except of course E. Warren (yikes, next Hillary) and Ted Cruz (wife high up in Goldman Sachs International)

  6. I wonder IF mad dog oboozo ever gets tired of having EGG on his face,now for the FEDERAL BOOBS INC,.having egge on their face is normal,they only hire the stupidist fools they can find,LOOK who their leader is,perfect example……A KNOW TERRORIST……….. AND GANSTER FROM CHICAGO………

  8. If you look at who, by and large, runs these companies, it is startling. It seems there is a shared heritage and ethnicity among them. Not to mention a certain political persuasion. But for the life of me I can’t discern what it is. Amish?

  9. Re: AZ, the idea is to capture the “news cycle”. That’s why they boldly proclaim in a definitive proclamation that they “have the answer”. That’s broadcast through all the captured media listed above at 100 db. Any corrections that come later might be carried by 10% of the captured media, but at 10 db. I’ve watched them do this on an almost constant basis. So the “Sheeple” have been “propagandized” and 90% will insist on the truth of the original story. Even though it’s been debunked.

  10. Will a free internet overide the power of these six mega corporations? Doubt it. There will be restrictions from TPTB. So how do we win against this problem? Take their money away…..don’t feed the monster.

  11. I think internets should be like tollways. Once the cost, with some % profit are met then it should be free [given the taxpayer pays maintenance costs after that] even then, though, once the internet/tollway comes into the public domain there will be those who lobby to purchase those properties back to excise more tolls when they did not, in fact, build those tubes.

    And by Gosh, there will be some politician, in order to obtain re-election dollars, that will do just that. Pay for what you paid for again and again to keep their sorry ass in office.

  12. KB, that is the capitalist spirit. Once they figure a way to control the distribution of air, free-breathers will be declared socialist outlaws. Shit, the quickest way is to declare air private property and they can begin collecting fees on it. Just wait.

    Next up: Sunshine, the term where the sun don’t shine will define poor peeps.

  13. This is why we need blogs & stuff (when they’re not being crippled by some denial of service attack like TBP was/is). I honestly don’t understand the pro & cons of the net neutrality debate at all. The more it’s explained to me, the dumber I get.

  14. Every view you have of the world and what you perceive as reality is carefully crafted by those corporations from the day you are born. Your parent’s views and desires were constructed by them and in turn passed on to you. We are who THEY make us and we believe what we are told to believe. What sort of people would we be and what type of reality would exist if we just TURNED IT ALL OFF ?

  15. Let’s not forget the man who made this possible, clinton appointee, former FCC chairman michael powell. (Powell.. powell…hmmm. only powell most people remember was the one lying us into iraq in front of the UN. that was a different powell, his dad.) These kinds of problems have origins, and names and faces behind them. It takes a certain kind of person to sell his soul.

  16. “The conflict between the East and West was designed to scare the people of the world into accepting a convergence of these two monopoly systems of authoritarian power. The end result was to be a new Imperial Order and a New World Empire run by an elite self-perpetuating oligarchies from the leading nations of the earth.”
