During my trip to DC in the summer of 2020 there were a myriad of disconcerting datapoints assembled; revelations that made sense of the madness and disappointments found everywhere. However, one of the key notations for future reference was to watch the political evolution of DHS and spot the jump where the ideological outlook turns into specific government action.
With the DHS/FBI portal within Twitter, and likely within all social media, now being openly discussed and mainstreamed, it’s worth revisiting an August 2021 tripwire crossed by DHS and then contemplating how that was influenced by a much larger ideological agenda.
The United States Department of Homeland Security made a quiet and alarming announcement on August 13, 2021, creating the official position of the United States Government under the Joe Biden regime. [SEE DHS STATEMENT HERE] According to the statement if you questioned the orthodoxy of government mandates, or COVID-19 responses from the U.S. government, you were -effective immediately- considered a “terrorist”, specifically a “Domestic Violent Extremist” (DVE).
Most people missed this remarkable development, yet it seemed to underpin a tenuous, unstable and fragile disposition of the current administration. Within this continuation of the Obama-era initiatives the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seemed rather paranoid in their need to label anyone who would question the COVID-19 response.
Considering the polling at the time, more than half the country would be defined as dissidents and domestic terrorists within our homeland. Think about that.
DHS – The Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a new National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin regarding the current heightened threat environment across the United States. […] These threats include those posed by domestic terrorists, individuals and groups engaged in grievance-based violence. […] Such threats are also exacerbated by impacts of the ongoing global pandemic, including grievances over public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions. (read more)
Notice the wording of that introductory paragraph. The government-imposed mandates, mask and vaccination requirements were only “perceived government restrictions.”
The chains that bound your expressions of liberty and freedom were essentially being defined as mere figments of your imagination. The rules and denials of activity that we are forced to live by, under the auspices of “public health and safety measures“, were described as perceived demands.
Most people missed this inflection point, but it was a substantive change in messaging from the United States Government.
The needle then being forced into the arm of federal workers by the Federal Government was not the problem.
It was the public perception of a forced medical treatment, and the need to control that perception that became the priority of the Dept of Homeland Security.
It was our perception of what they are doing that became the problem as outlined in this DHS bulletin. Here is where you must overlay the Twitter File revelations about the action the government took as an outcome of that shift. What followed in the censorship/control of social media by the same government agency, DHS, was an outcome of this ideological moment.
In essence We The People must correct our wrong-thoughts to eliminate carrying ‘the wrong perception’. Dear leader appreciates your compliance. At the time CTH noted to all readers the DHS statement was full blown Stazi-level propaganda. The bulletin continues:
[…] Through the remainder of 2021, racially- or ethnically-motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) and anti-government/anti-authority violent extremists will remain a national threat priority for the United States. These extremists may seek to exploit the emergence of COVID-19 variants by viewing the potential re-establishment of public health restrictions across the United States as a rationale to conduct attacks. Pandemic-related stressors have contributed to increased societal strains and tensions, driving several plots by domestic violent extremists, and they may contribute to more violence this year.
[…] There are also continued, non-specific calls for violence on multiple online platforms associated with DVE ideologies or conspiracy theories on perceived election fraud and alleged reinstatement, and responses to anticipated restrictions relating to the increasing COVID cases. (link)
This became the official position of the United States Government toward citizens in our nation. It is from this perspective that outreach and instructions to Twitter and various social media platforms originated.
Hopefully, in hindsight, you can see the importance of that narrative shift and how it ended with real consequences amid the speech platforms.
However, I want to move deeper, beyond that moment in 2021, deeper into the context that had taken hold of the various apparatus of government institutions. Back to that moment when the shift in approach became evident, albeit ignored for its consequence.
Immediately after Barack H Obama was successfully installed in office, something began to shift. While the U.S. media had always been biased, manipulative and dishonest, there was something bigger and deeper that changed after The Lightbringer achieved power and began his process of fundamental change.
The shift in the national security deployment, coincided with the merge between the intelligence apparatus and the new platforms of social media. The speed of the shift was directly connected to the speed of technology that was driving communication.
Together the intelligence apparatus, the customary U.S. media and Big Tech began testing how far and how fast they could control the outlook of Americans. Few people were paying attention to it…. there were some… but not many, and most of those who did notice were not connecting the dots to the actual tests.
The shift in attack direction from media (social and traditional) was alarming.
Normally the bias we encountered was framed to excuse or justify the transparently guilty of accountability. Bad people doing bad things were downplayed, excused and defended. However, in 2011 & 2012, the new era of controlling public opinion took shape and the system partners began falsely accusing the transparently innocent.
Read that again, because it was a profound difference, and inflection point.
Public opinion propaganda shifted from excusing the transparently guilty, to framing the transparently innocent.
Together with ideological institutions in government (Obama’s crew ie. DOJ etc.), the customary U.S. media and Big Tech system control operators began testing how far and fast they could control the outlook of Americans… to accuse the transparently innocent
Some transparently innocent examples included, George Zimmerman (Trayvon Martin), Police Officer Darren Wilson (Mike Brown), the Baltimore Six accused (Freddy Gray), Nick Sandmann, Kile Rittenhouse, and then ultimately the biggest example, Donald J Trump. Take a transparently innocent person and manipulate a public narrative to make them guilty.
In combination with this new use of the public-private partnership to target the transparently innocent, the social media platforms were instructed to remove content that ran counter to the false presentations.
Now, fast forward throughout a decade of the ideological shift (2011 to 2021) and what did the 2021 DHS terrorism bulletin do?
It expanded the targeting of the transparently innocent.
Instead of specific targets based on personage, the system of collaboration and control by DHS now extended to a whole of government effort to define people as ‘domestic terrorists.’ This is one long continuum of targeting the transparently innocent.
The target holds the same ideas, outlooks, worldviews, and expectations of Liberty and Freedom they held yesterday, last week, last month and perhaps even long before 9-11-01. However, now you are the problem. You are guilty. You are an extremist.
You didn’t change at all. Something else changed. But notice how the spotlight on what changed is YOU, and not the origin of the change?
You are the problem. It’s not the fault of those fundamentally changing the structures of freedom or liberty, you shifted to become the guilty party.
Can you see how they did that?
Can you see how the cancer cells of beta-test accusations against the transparently innocent metastasized and weaponized into a system that now uses the institutions of government against all of us, against the average American who might not accept the specific demands of government, ie. mask wearing, vaccinations, etc.
This government effort, a continuation of a narrative engineering strategy that originated in the aftermath of Obama’s election, specifically included the weaponization of social media and the compliance of the system operators who controlled Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google, Microsoft, YouTube, etc.
How can we help people to see this, to understand what took place?
