In 1948, when the United States left the war as arguably the world’s strongest superpower, it inaugurated the Office of Special Projects. That organization later became the espionage and counter-intelligence branch of the Central Intelligence Agency. Its mission was to concentrate on:
“… propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world.” (1)
That year saw it initiate Operation Mockingbird, whose purpose was to influence the domestic American media. By the early 1950s, it “owned” respected members of the New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles.” (2) It not only tried to sway American media but planted advantageous stories in foreign publications as well.
Within five years, this network of media agents and operatives was overseen by Allen W. Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. By this time Operation Mockingbird had influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies.
These organizations were run by people with well-known right-wing views such as William Paley (CBS), Henry Luce (Time Magazine and Life Magazine), Arthur Hays Sulzberger (New York Times), Alfred Friendly (managing editor of the Washington Post), Jerry O’Leary (Washington Star), Hal Hendrix (Miami News), Barry Bingham Sr., (Louisville Courier-Journal), James Copley (Copley News Services) and Joseph Harrison (Christian Science Monitor). (3)
By 1976, a Congressional report on Operation Mockingbird concluded that:
“The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets.” (4)
The report’s author estimated that the cost of misinforming the world cost American taxpayers nearly $265 million a year.
Later, Carl Bernstein, who worked with Bob Woodward in the investigation of Watergate, provided further information about Operation Mockingbird in an article in The Rolling Stone in October, 1977. Bernstein claimed that over a 25-year period more than 400 American journalists secretly carried out assignments for the CIA:
“Some of the journalists were Pulitzer Prize winners, distinguished reporters who considered themselves ambassadors-without-portfolio for their country. Most were less exalted: foreign correspondents who found that their association with the Agency helped their work; stringers and freelancers who were as interested in the daring-do of the spy business as in filing articles, and, the smallest category, full-time CIA employees masquerading as journalists abroad.” (5)
Keeping these events in mind, I’d now like to look at the accounts of the sources we follow on this site about the control of the media after this time. In 2005, Matthew Ward told us that the CIA was controlled by the Illuminati and served its aims. Matthew said:
“A large group within the CIA, which only superficially is an intelligence gathering agency to serve the security of the United States, is composed of Illuminati leaders and operators with diverse nationalities, political persuasions and belief systems, but with one aim: world domination.” (6)
The intelligence agency was involved in the worst mass murder in American domestic history – the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001 – and most other false-flag operations in several countries since then. (7)
CIA funding, which had earlier come from skimming the Marshall Plan, now increasingly came from the world drug trade, Matthew tells us.
“The enormously profitable illegal drug industry funds both [Illuminati] factions’ ‘black ops,’ including terrorist activities blamed on innocents and vast underground areas where their scientists conduct unconscionable experiments on humankind and develop spacecraft, weaponry, surveillance and weather-control systems using technology introduced by the ‘Little Greys.’” (8)
Instead of simply planting stories in the media and having many journalists in their pocket, the CIA took an ever wider role in journalism, on behalf of its Illuminati masters. In 2003 the Hathors speaking through Tom Kenyon could advise us that:
“The economic powers that control the global economy [i.e., the Illuminati] are manipulating the press and information systems on your planet to create fear. Fear is an ancient method of manipulating human consciousness.” (9)
In 2009, SaLuSa agreed with the Hathors that the Illuminati controlled the world’s media and were using it to keep us in a state of fear.
“The horrors of the world are presented to you on a daily basis, and with the Illuminati controlling and editing your news it is not balanced by reporting the ‘good news.’ This is a deliberate ploy to keep you in a fearful state, and deny you the opportunity to know that there is much good work taking place.” (10)
The situation had still not changed by last year (2010), SaLuSa informed us:
“We feel bound to keep you informed as to what is happening around you, as it is as well you understand that nothing is [really] like it seems. The media is controlled and you are fed the very news that will support the plan of the dark Ones, and clearly it will be far from the truth. Even with your greater powers with freedom of information, you are still denied much of the truth, as you have found out.” (11)
He agrees with Matthew that the press is owned by the Illuminati and falsifies stories to serve their ends.
“At a time when you have such a good system of communication, it is ironic that it is controlled by those behind the media who determine what you are allowed to know. What should be given a public airing is censored, and results in so many major topics of national interest being hidden away. There has not been such a thing as freedom of the press to report on all matters of interest for a long time. Indeed reports are falsified to satisfy the aims of the Illuminati, and journalists comply rather than risk losing their jobs. When their lives and family are also threatened it takes a brave person to stand up to them.” (12)
Moreover, the public has grown up on and is conditioned by Illuminati-mandated news, SaLuSa says.
“A large section of the public are engrossed in the negativity that the media regularly feed them. Indeed you have grown up on it, and eventually it has little effect on your emotions. After a time you develop an immunity to being shocked or overawed, even by the atrocities committed almost on a daily basis.” (13)
Of course not all member of the press are Illuminati, Matthew Ward assured his mother in 2003:
“Mother, I don’t mean that all reporters for press, radio and television are aware that much of the information they give out is patently false, or incomplete or distorted facts, and they are given no information that would expose the massive deception and corruption of government operations.
“Many reporters are not aware, others have become suspicious, and some are knowledgeable parts of the disinformation plot. When I say ‘media,’ it is not with contempt for the reporters who are just doing their job, it refers to the few dark minds who control the information flow.
“Also, I surely do not mean that their strategy fools everyone! We see new lights sparking constantly, indications that hearts and minds are awakening spiritually and mentally and truth is entering feelings and thoughts.” (14)
By 2008, Matthew Ward saw some progress having been made in loosening the Illuminati’s grip on the media.
“The long era of the controllers is seeing its end as their crimes against humankind and Nature are being exposed in both trickle-up and trickle-down fashion. This is becoming more and more evident even in major media despite the controllers’ attempts to stifle emerging truths.” (15)
By 2010, Matthew saw definite gains being made and struck a hopeful note.
“Truth is not yet surging into your mainstream information outlets, but it is seeping ever more strongly now that the finger is out of the dike, so to say. With this media barrier seriously compromised, the dark ones cannot much longer hide the massive deception that in this moment is only barely exposed to the public, much as the tip of an iceberg is visible while the immense part with potentially lethal destructive power lies out of view.” (16)
What was ending was not a 20th-Century phenomenon but a trend that went back millennia, he alleged. The Internet was one powerful tool in defeating the world-domination agenda of the Illuminati. He also credited the rising light energies with causing the fall of media mind-control.
“There have been attempts to stifle the truth since the dawn of communication on Gaia-Terra-Shan-Earth, and the attempts were successful when darkly-inclined ones controlled the dissemination of information. In modern times, they expected to broaden their web of control with the Internet, but instead, it became their undoing.
“Now factual evidence that until recently was mainly restricted to that source is reaching the public through the perseverance of courageous investigative journalists, other reporters, eyewitnesses and individuals disclosing personal experiences.
“Not only is there increasing exposure of lies and corruption, but also innovative ways people are adapting to the economic situation are being publicized. The tearing down of mind control via the media has come about because of the ever-intensifying light.” (17)
One year later, SaLuSa saw a definite change for the better, as the light energies continued to rise on the planet. Here he is in early July 2011:
“We would suggest you pay extra attention to your press and other news outlets, as within their daily outpourings there is a change of approach taking place, and the real truth is beginning to emerge. You will need to use your discretion as there are still going to be half-truths for quite a time yet.
“What is happening is that the higher vibrations are raising your consciousness levels, and it is strengthening your resolve to get the truth out. Brave souls with something to tell are gaining the wrath of the dark Ones, as they stand tall and are prepared to withstand the consequences.
“We have their karma to consider, but where we can you may be assured they will get our protection. Sometimes they would appear to fail in their attempts to bring matters into the public arena, but often sufficient is done by airing the evidence of malpractice and outright criminal activity.
“Too much has been taking place that the Illuminati seem to have gotten away with. Yet that has made them careless and feel untouchable, when in fact they are being revealed for what they are with firm evidence of their crimes.
“We need you to keep probing and constantly pushing for the truth to come out, and you will gather support until people power is so strong that it can no longer be ignored.” (18)
SaLuSa may as well have been talking about the Murdochs, his comments are so relevant to their case. It is against the backdrop of these comments that this first largescale assault on an Illuminati bastion of media control is taking place.
I’m biased in hoping, watching and waiting for the fall of the Murdoch journalistic empire. I tend to interpret every expression of public outrage as the beginning of the end of this bastion of Illuminati influence. But in fact the Murdochs could survive this latest scandal and their fall may come only later.
But the fact that the public, the government, and the media have broken ranks and condemned the illegal activity of the Murdochs is at least a hopeful sign and may signal the beginning of the end of Illuminati control over the world’s news. Sooner or later, the rising energies will sweep them aside and restore freedom of the press. The more we educate ourselves on the subject, the sooner that will be.
