Duke Brickhouse is a former trial lawyer and entertainment attorney who has refocused his life’s work to exposing the truth of our subjugated planet and to help raise humanity’s collective consciousness at this crucial moment in our planet’s history, in order to break out of the dark and negative false reality that is preventing the natural development of our species, to put our planet on a path of love, light and harmony in preparation for our species’ ascension to a fourth density, and to ultimately take our rightful place in the galactic community.

James F. Tracy is a PhD from the University of Iowa. A former professor of communications at Boca Raton, Florida Atlantic University. He is one of many critical thinkers within the world of academia, and as result of presenting the following information that might spark some cognitive dissonance, he has been singled out due to his activism efforts.

For example, he was fired from his tenured professorship at Florida Atlantic University for questioning official narratives of terror events. Now, his Blog has been taken down by WordPress with no clear explanation.

Tracy is well researched, and now reports on several different matters of escalating importance. Below is an article he wrote in August of 2015, and is relevant today given all of the “fake news” campaigns that have been directed against alternative media.

Since the end of World War Two the Central Intelligence Agency has been a major force in US and foreign news media, exerting considerable influence over what the public sees, hears and reads on a regular basis. CIA publicists and journalists alike will assert they have few, if any, relationships, yet the seldom acknowledged history of their intimate collaboration indicates a far different story–indeed, one that media historians are reluctant to examine.

When seriously practiced, the journalistic profession involves gathering information concerning individuals, locales, events, and issues. In theory such information informs people about their world, thereby strengthening “democracy.” This is exactly the reason why news organizations and individual journalists are tapped as assets by intelligence agencies and, as the experiences of German journalist Udo Ulfkotte (entry 47 below) suggest, this practice is at least as widespread today as it was at the height of the Cold War.

Consider the coverups of election fraud in 2000 and 2004, the events of September 11, 2001, the invasions Afghanistan and Iraq, the destabilization of Syria, and the creation of “ISIS.” These are among the most significant events in recent world history, and yet they are also those much of the American public is wholly ignorant of. In an era where information and communication technologies are ubiquitous, prompting many to harbor the illusion of being well-informed, one must ask why this condition persists.

Further, why do prominent US journalists routinely fail to question other deep events that shape America’s tragic history over the past half century, such as the political assassinations of the 1960s, or the central role played by the CIA major role in international drug trafficking?

Popular and academic commentators have suggested various reasons for the almost universal failure of mainstream journalism in these areas, including newsroom sociology, advertising pressure, monopoly ownership, news organizations’ heavy reliance on “official” sources, and journalists’ simple quest for career advancement. There is also, no doubt, the influence of professional public relations maneuvers. Yet such a broad conspiracy of silence suggests another province of deception examined far too infrequently—specifically the CIA and similar intelligence agencies’ continued involvement in the news media to mold thought and opinion in ways scarcely imagined by the lay public.

The following historical and contemporary facts–by no means exhaustive–provides a glimpse of how the power such entities possess to influence if not determine popular memory and what respectable institutions deem to be the historical record.

  • The recent release of the JFK Files has revealed many disturbing things about the CIA. Here are five of them:
  • (1) The CIA plotted methods of terrorizing Cuba. They included sabotaging Cuba’s food crops with biological agents to cause a famine, and instigating a widespread chemical outbreak.
  • (2) The CIA published “hit-lists” with the different bounties they would pay for certain communist leaders, including Castro – a tactic they still use today in Afghanistan.
  • (3) The CIA routinely worked with the Mafia, and Chicago boss Sam Giancana in particular. The CIA enlisted the help of the Mafia to assassinate Castro.
  • (4) The CIA used mind control techniques “ for influencing human behavior”. One document refers to the CIA’s testing of equipment designed to measure “physiological responses in human subjects”.
  • (5) The CIA firmly controlled the mainstream media, from newspapers to books to television to movies, through Operation Mockingbird.
  • [Editors Note] Of the 3,100 JFK  files that were scheduled for release on October 26th, only 2,800 were actually released.  But if this is the kind of information that the agency is allowing us to see, what might the other 300 documents reveal that the CIA doesn’t want us to see?

 

Although decades of independent research—in spite of endless government gag orders—revealed a litany of information about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the newly-released “JFK Files” have nonetheless brought some damning facts to light.

And beneath the spotlight is—you guessed it— the Central Intelligence Agency, implicated in executing mind control operations, colluding with the mafia, assassinations, and outright terrorism.

The 2,800 files still require much combing over, but independent researchers have already discovered plenty, including the following 5 damning revelations.

 

  1. Biological Warfare Reminiscent of Monsanto

We’ve all heard of the chemical warfare being waged by Monsanto that’s left crops decimated, but many years ago, the CIA was already engaged in the practice.

Described as “agricultural sabotage”, the agency plotted methods of terrorizing Cuba by “producing crop failures by the introduction of biological agents which would appear to be of natural origin.”

Called “Operation Mongoose,” the intention was to inhibit food supplies, an effort that could have left countless Cubans in famished.

The documents even describe a willingness to create a widespread chemical outbreak, insofar as “they could be completely covered up.”

  1. CIA Hitlists

Governments aren’t supposed to be creating and actualizing hitlists, yet that’s essentially what the CIA did, according to the new files:

“Leaflets will be designed to indicate phases.

“For example, the first leaflets will contain only names of communist leaders; the next leaflets will revise the names by job; i.e. cell leader, informer, party members, etc.; any of the above or subsequent leaflets will announce the amount of the reward, how and where it may be collected.

“One final leaflet may be deemed advisable and that one announcing a .02c reward for the delivery of Castro.”

The “hitlists” acted like bounties, giving financial incentives to locals to rat out others—a tactic employed by the US in Afghanistan.

  1. CIA Colluded With the Mafia

In what should earn it the new title “Criminal Intelligence Agency,” the CIA also appears to have colluded with the mafia to get Fidel Castro killed.

The first page of the archived files reveals two important documents referencing “plans involved a number of bizarre schemes and, in at least one instance, involved some contact with organized criminal elements.”

Of the contacts, one of them was the infamous Chicago mob boss Mooney Sam, aka Salvatore Giancana:

  1. CIA’s Mind Control for “Influencing Human Behavior”

MK ULTRA is nothing new to conspiracy circles, but the JFK files make direct reference to the CIA’s use of what sound like mind control techniques.

In a document titled “Commission on CIA Activities Within the Unites States,” there is a direct admission to the ““involvement in research on techniques for influencing human behavior and on methods of protecting Agency personnel against hostile use of drugs or ‘brain working’ techniques.”

Other references to “testing of equipment measuring physiological responses in human subjects” make the implications much more sinister.

• “National security” is now an umbrella term used to justify concealing information, and with the NSA surveillance program that was exposed by Edward Snowden, it’s a global problem. But who makes these decisions?
• What we have is an attempt to manipulate public perception of global events through mainstream media and news publications. But people are now waking up and seeing through many of these lies and manipulation tactics. Instead of just blindly believing what they hear on television, more people are starting to think critically, do independent research, and examine a wide array of sources and information.
• Operation Mockingbird was a CIA-based program to control mainstream media. A declassified CIA document explains how the agency has “persuaded reporters to postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories.” The document also discloses how the CIA is constantly in touch with the entertainment industry, even giving advice on scenes and direction.
• Dr. Udo Ulfkotte is a prominent German journalist who said that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agencies under his own name and that noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job.
• Sharyl Attkisson and Amber Lyon are both well-known mainstream media journalists who revealed that they are routinely paid by the U.S. government as well as foreign governments to selectively report and distort information on certain events.
• On Jimmy Kimmel Live, actor Jim Carrey said, , “For years now, talk show hosts, people on television, people in sitcoms have been, hired by the government to throw you off the tracks, to distract you, to make you laugh and stuff like that, make you happy and docile so you don’t know what’s really going on.”
• TV personality Roseanne Barr has openly spoken about the CIA’s MK Ultra mind control program.
• Patriotism propaganda is pumped into the population to support a large military in the name of “national security.”
• Russell Targ is a physicist who has spent several decades working in a U.S. government program exploring ESP, remote viewing, telepathy, etc.
• The “classified world” is much more advanced than our mainstream one. Former director of Lockheed Skunkworks, Ben Rich, said, “There are two types of UFOs — the ones we build and the ones ‘they’ build.”
• The CIA document outlines its close relationship with academia because ‘certain developments and information that stem from academia could threaten national security and therefore must be kept out of the curriculum, and the public domain’.
• The government routinely suppresses technology patents under the Sensitive Application Warning System. The normal patent application process takes one or two years. Under the SAWS the application may be delayed for many years. At the end of fiscal year 2014 there were over 5,000 inventions that were under secrecy orders.
• Dr. Gerald F. Ross experienced a 37-year patent delay for an invention he had devised to defeat the jamming of electromagnetic transmissions at specified frequencies. His patent wasn’t granted until 2014.
• When information is hidden from us and manipulated at the same time, it will only spark more curiosity. That’s one aspect of the current shift in consciousness that’s happening on our planet. We’re beginning to see the human experience in a different light, and starting to recognize that the time for change is really here. What are we going to do about it?

 

A declassified document from the CIA archives in the form of a letter from a CIA task force addressed to the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency details the close relationship that exists between the CIA and mainstream media and academia.

The document states that the CIA task force “now has relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation,” and that “this has helped us turn some ‘intelligence failure’ stories into ‘intelligence success” stories,’ and has contributed to the accuracy of countless others.” Furthermore, it explains how the agency has “persuaded reporters to postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories that could have adversely affected national security interests or jeopardized sources and methods.”

Although it is a document outlining their desire to become more open and transparent, the deception outlined by various whistleblowers requires us to read between the lines and recognize that the relationships shared between intelligence agencies and our sources of information are not always warranted and pose inherent conflicts of interest.

Herein lies the problem: What is “national security,” and who determines that definition? JFK bravely told the world that the “dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it.” He also said that “there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.”

“National security” is now an umbrella term used to justify concealing information, but who makes these decisions? Not only are countless documents classified every single year in North America, but false information and “fake news” are routinely dispersed, mainly by mainstream media outlets — a reality that is clearly conveyed in this document and has been expressed by multiple mainstream media journalists themselves. And as with the NSA surveillance program that was exposed by Edward Snowden, it’s a global problem.

Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, a prominent German journalist and editor for more than two decades, is one example. He blew the whistle on public television, stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agencies under his own name and that noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job.

Sharyl Attkisson and Amber Lyon, both well-known mainstream media reporters and journalists, have also exposed funded movements by political, corporate, and other special interests, and have revealed that they are routinely paid by the U.S. government as well as foreign governments to selectively report and distort information on certain events.

Let’s not forget about Operation Mockingbird, a CIA-based initiative to control mainstream media.
The document not only outlines the CIA’s role in media, but also the entire entertainment industry in general, lending further weight to revelations offered by celebrities like Jim Carrey. He appeared as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, saying that, “For years now, talk show hosts, people on television, people in sitcoms have been, hired by the government to throw you off the tracks, to distract you, to make you laugh and stuff like that, make you happy and docile so you don’t know what’s really going on.”

While some question whether he was merely joking, the facts still remain. Another celebrity, who was clearly serious, is Roseanne Barr, who referenced the CIA’s MK Ultra mind control program — a previously classified research program through the CIA’s scientific intelligence division that tested behavioural modification and perception manipulation on human beings.

What we seem to have here is an attempt to manipulate public perception of global events through mainstream media and news publications. But what’s perhaps most interesting is the fact that a lot of people are now waking up and seeing through many of these lies and manipulation tactics. Instead of just blindly believing what we hear on television, more people are starting to think critically, do independent research, and examine a wide array of sources and information.

So many opportunities have emerged within the past few years allowing others to see this more clearly. One was the recent “fake news” epidemic, where evidence surfaced exposing information that threatened the global elite. Wikileaks is perhaps one of the greatest examples. For mainstream media to basically label everything else as “fake news” was quite ironic, given that it seems the majority of people consider mainstream media themselves to be the real “fake news,” and this is now even more evident given the information presented above in this article.

The documents also touch upon the fact that they are constantly in touch with the entertainment industry, giving advice on scenes and direction, as well as how things happened in certain situations. Personally, I feel the industry is largely used to push propaganda, like patriotism. Patriotism is pumped into the population to support a large military in the name of “national security.” We are being fooled, wars are not waged for defence, but for offence and to push forth political agendas.

So you see, there are multiple reasons for these CIA connections to various industries.

Academia

From a young age we’re taught that getting an education is the key to living a good life. Getting a decent job, making good money, even finding the right partner — all depend on following a certain path. Yet many concepts and topics are, as previously illustrated, kept from public viewing, and this includes plenty of important science.

The U.S. intelligence community investigated parapsychology (ESP, remote viewing, telepathy, etc.) for more than two decades, for instance. Russell Targ, a physicist who has spent several decades working in a U.S. government program exploring these concepts, recently shared his experience doing so in a TED talk that is now approaching 1 million views.

Another great example of Black Budget science comes from Ben Rich, the second director of Lockheed Skunkworks, who worked there from 1975-1991. He’s been called the Father of Stealth, having overseen the development of the first stealth fighter, the F-117 Nighthawk. Before his death, Rich made several shocking open statements about the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials.

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it.”

“We now have technology to take ET home. No it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars.”
“There are two types of UFOs — the ones we build and the ones ‘they’ build.”

Information like this, including testimony from hundreds of others, suggests that the “classified world” is much more advanced than our mainstream one.

This particular document states that the agency exposes administrators of academic institutions to the agency on a regular basis.

Obviously, as with any other job, the CIA would be looking for what they consider to be qualified individuals. But the document does outline its close relationship with academia in general.
This is because certain developments and information that stem from academia could threaten national security and therefore must be kept out of the curriculum, and the public domain.
