Yes, US Government Propaganda Use Against American Citizens Is Officially Legal Now

propaganda truthstreamBy Melissa Dykes

Some people still aren’t sure on this point, so just for the record, yes: US government propaganda use against American citizens has been fully made legal.

You see kids, once upon a time in 1948, we had something known as the Smith-Mundt Act (or, more officially, The US Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948). This act specified the State Department’s propaganda operations outside (key word “outside”) of US borders in a shift from wartime to peacetime use of propaganda as an instrument of the new post-World War II foreign policy.

The first restriction on this act was to prohibit domestic propaganda dissemination, with assurances that Congress, academia, and the mainstream media would filter out the foreign propaganda. As you can see, that obviously worked out really well.

Anyway, fast forward to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, in which the Smith-Mundt Act was officially amended to allow materials produced by the State Department and Broadcasting Board of Governors to be released inside the United States.

In other words, Government use of propaganda against the American people became legal.

And free game. Obviously. Why else would we have scenes like this State Department spokesman bursting into laughter at welcoming the journalists to his press conference, which he referred to sarcastically as an “exercise in transparency and democracy”:

They aren’t even trying to pretend anything they say is true anymore.

Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton created TruthstreamMedia.com as an outlet to examine the news, place it in a broader context, uncover the deceptions, pierce through the fabric of illusions, grasp the underlying factors, know the real enemy, unshackle from the system, and begin to imagine the path towards taking back our lives, one step at a time, so that one day we might truly be free…

    I’m waiting for the full disclosure on the intelligence agencies’ Hollywood fiulms going back decades. If you knew the whole truth, you would throw up all over your smart phone screen or keyboard, then leap from the nearest balcony. But if you were a patriot, a very long list of culpable parties would quickly begin emerging, your entire world view would have to change, and a whole lot of people would be prime candidates for criminal charges.

      In their minds I’m sure we aren’t worth the effort or respect for such disclosure. Our continued apathy and cowardice concerning the criminals in office will give them reason to shift from humor and entertainment to complete contempt of our behavior.
      Our lack of appropriate response is enabling the criminality to grow exponentially. We have laws on the books that are very clear about the activity in dc and many other areas of the congressional,military,industrial,financial,pharmaceutical complex/mafia.
      There is enough work here to completely restore any jobs deficiency we have. The only thing that should be taking place right now is mass arrests of the hundreds if not thousands of criminals we have infesting this nation, and most are at the top. Anything else going on such as elections, olympics, or reality tv is just kabuki theater designed to keep the masses asleep while they rob us blind.

      If the law is not applied equally to everyone, it is no good for anyone.

      A people deserve any regime they endure.. And that is exactly what we are doing. Mindlessly enduring this criminal reign because we make excuses for our apathy and cowardice to do the right thing.
      Just like it was in Germany.

        They just did what you said, but the people are clueless. This is a reference to at least a couple of the latest films, with the accompanying “hacking” of NSA’s most closely-guarded secrets. It would not be impossible to explain that here, but it would be like presenting a 7-course meal and expecting people who are starving with shrunken stomachs to devour it in the time it takes to read what I would write at this thread. And the food would be poisoned anyway.

    Since we’ve known the corporate media is obviously lying to us by the blatant USDA bovine excrement they serve up for our consuption, Americans are turning to the alternative media on the Internet and foreign sources. The corporate media has lost the battle for the minds of Americans and they know it.
