YouTube video presents “real bullet shots and fake shots in Virginia WDBJ TV News Live Broadcast Shooting.”
The video below shows footage of shooting an actual handgun, complete with recoil/muzzle flip, spent casings exiting the weapon, and bullet impact versus the footage of the August 26 reported shooting of broadcast journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward which suggests the potential use of blanks or the equivalent during the event.
The “journalistic” duo were prone to elaborate get-ups and antics both on and off the air – UK paper says
Photographs obtained from the social media accounts of slain reporters Alison Parker and Adam Ward posted by the Daily Mail on August 26 indicate the pair greatly enjoyed dressing up at work and play. At one point they are even photographed in a dressing room preparing “fake injuries” as combination crisis actor/reporters.
“The reporter and cameraman shared this photo of them being painted with fake injuries for a news segment,” the Mail remarks.
A man is offering $25,000 to any party who can substantively disprove his claim that the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was staged. Taking to YouTube as a platform one Joe Jones of Kentucky thinks the tragic incident was carried out with the aid of “crisis actors” at a building “decommissioned several years prior to the day of the event” because of “asbestos and mold.” By late 2012 “the building was just being used for storage,” he says in the video.
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society,” Edward Bernays observed almost a century ago. “Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” Bernays’ insight reflects the view of corporate statists he regularly commissioned with.

Intertwined with complex public relations exercises, corporate news media’s role today has far less to do with informing the public than it does with maintaining a perpetual tension and anxiety throughout the body politic. Through such tension the citizenry will further gravitate toward or even consciously advocate for heightened police state measures now peddled a prerequisite for public safety.

On this weeks Real Politik journalist and historian Douglas Valentine discusses his research that culminated in the landmark 1990 book The Phoenix Program–the definitive history of the CIA-led counterinsurgency and assassination campaign carried out in Vietnam during the late 1960s.
Phoenix was a major precursor to the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security in the post-9/11 era and remains a potential harbinger in light of domestic military exercises such as Jade Helm that has begun this week.

An exciting new program will debut on MTV July 22 called “White People.” As the trailer (below) suggests, the show seeks to examine white privilege through the eyes of young caucasians, all of whom in my view certainly have a clear advantage over African Americans, Latinos, and perhaps even some Asians in terms of smarts, education, and job opportunities, simply because of the color of their skin and the fact that in America skin color almost invariably equates to socio-economic privilege.
