THE FEDPOST EP 38: Xi Pilled (Feat. Logo Daedalus)
A deep discussion on the capitol raid psyop, the death of dissent, Xi Jinping and global autocracy, and pseudo free speech
Even the "good guys" like to burn books:
"Democratic regimes may be described as those under which the people are, from time to time, deluded into the belief that they exercise sovereignty, while all the time real sovereignty resides in and is exercised by other and sometimes irresponsible and secret forces. Democracy is a kingless regime infested by many kings who are sometimes more exclusive, tyrannical, and destructive than one, even if he be a tyrant."
The psyop campaign that pushed the US into World War Two:
In the months leading up to Pearl Harbor, William Stephenson (head of MI6 operations in the US) and William Donnovan (head of US Intelligence) ran a major propaganda operation out of the Rockefeller Center in New York City, to psyop the public into going to war. This operation not only succeeded in influencing America’s decision to go to war, it also influenced Hitler’s decision to declare war on us.
Twitter Deletes Dozens of Russian Accounts for “Undermining Faith in NATO”
"The fact that Twitter is taking action against accounts because they undermine faith in NATO is a sure sign of the organization’s growing influence in Twitter’s internal affairs."
This is a fun warning label: "don't read this, it was a hack!"
Interesting 2013 report prepared for the DOD, assessing racial tensions inside China and recommending ways the US can use those tensions to our advantage:
Twitter executive for Middle East is British Army 'psyops' soldier

Special Report: Inside the UAE’s secret hacking team of U.S. mercenaries
“I am working for a foreign intelligence agency who is targeting U.S. persons,” she told Reuters. “I am officially the bad kind of spy.”
“Some days it was hard to swallow, like [when you target] a 16-year-old kid on Twitter,” she said. “But it’s an intelligence mission, you are an intelligence operative. I never made it personal.”
Culture war huh? Like the Council on Books in Wartime?
This is the world we still live in— it runs on OWI propaganda taken as historical reality.
Reuters, BBC in Covert UK Program to Push Western Agenda
“The leaked materials show the Thomson Reuters Foundation and BBC Media Action participating in a covert information warfare campaign aimed at countering Russia. Working through a shadowy department within the FCO known as the Counter Disinformation & Media Development (CDMD), the media organizations operated alongside a collection of intelligence contractors in a secret entity known simply as 'the Consortium'.”
Britain secretly funded Reuters in 1960s and 1970s
"The British government secretly funded Reuters in the 1960s and 1970s at the behest of an anti-Soviet propaganda unit linked to British intelligence and concealed the funding by using the BBC to make the payments, declassified government documents show.
The money was used to expand Reuters coverage of the Middle East and Latin America and hidden by increased news subscription payments to Reuters from the BBC."
