Now The Feds Can Openly Control This Sector Of Society

Government takeover can happen quickly or it can happen gradually. While we haven’t (thankfully) seen a coup in the United States, the Federal government has been gradually expanding it’s power and control into different areas of society. Whether it is influence and control over state governments by threatening to withhold Federal money or whether it is through the use of laws, the Federal takeover has been becoming more and more complete.

Now, we can thank President Obama for sneaking in legislation two days before Christmas which gives the Feds the ability to muzzle the free press.

The legislation which was signed into law is called the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and is, primarily, for the purpose of funding the military. However, nasty little provisions are often added onto legislation or cloaked to look innocent. Such is the case with the NDAA. Claire Bernish gives the details:

According to the text of the $619 billion bill, the Secretaries of State and Defense and other pertinent officials will be tasked with creating an innocuous-sounding “Global Engagement Center.”

“The purpose of the Center,”states the text, “shall be to lead, synchronize, and coordinate efforts of the Federal Government to recognize, understand, expose, and counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining United States national security interests.”

and

“The Center is authorized to provide grants or contracts of financial support to civil society groups, media content providers, nongovernmental organizations, federally funded research and development centers, private companies, or academic institutions for the following purposes:

  • To support local independent media who are best placed to refute foreign disinformation and manipulation in their own communities.
  • To collect and store examples in print, online, and social media, disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda directed at the United States and its allies and partners.
  • To analyze and report on tactics, techniques, and procedures of foreign information warfare with respect to disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda.
  • To support efforts by the Center to counter efforts by foreign entities to use disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda to influence the policies and social and political stability of the United States and United States allies and partner nations.

It doesn’t take too much imagination to see how this legislation can easily be used to prevent news that the government doesn’t like from getting to you and me, and, once that happens, how will you know what is really going on? You won’t have any warning of danger before it hits when it comes to a societal collapse.

With this new development, it’s even more important that you are ready now and ready all of the time because you won’t know when the disaster situation is going to hit.

What do you think about this new government leash on society? Tell us below.

    Well, our bible tells us there’s a time for everything, under the heavens! A time to listen, a time to learn, a time to be meek, a time to be stern, so when those Feds go and push us to far, its time that they learn, like our fathers before, we know who we are!

    We must exercise our First amendment. Use it or lose it.

    Jews must be allowed to speak in support of Israel if they so chose. And Christians in support of policies they espouse, regardless of countries involved. And American patriots likewise, even if that means we oppose our government’s disruption of Middle East countries and its support of terrorist groups there.

    Americans must not let themselves be shut out of foreign policy discussion. We must not be prevented from opposing harmful U.S. policies just because some foreign power also opposes those American policies.

      The problem is that violence is not included in the first amendment and that seems to be the bigger problem.

    • GRAMPA

      the first amendment protects free speech not the consequences from it.

    That’s why the second amendment is where its at…supporting the first.

    The 2013 Thornberry-Smith Amendment to the NDAA allows propaganda within the US (formerly forbidden by the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948). Mac Thornberry won 90% of the vote in 2016. Why? Adam Smith was a WA state senator at 25, and has been in DC, now into his 11th term. This is why the country is in such a mess. Career politicians that are clueless, and in my opinion, anti-American.

      Good point

  • angel

    had a terrorist event that kept us on the highway 2.5 hours not moving. and it was kept silent. put on the internet news page was removed instantly. and calls to police were told we cannot talk about it. and page removed said on the news channel that the page was removed. really amazing how we are kept from knowing ANYTHING AT ALL AND HOW THE BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA OFFICIALS NEVER CALL OR RESPOND TO THE CITIZENS ABOUT A N Y T H I N G!! NOW THAT REALLY IS A CRIME TO HUMANITY.

    • Joye McCallum

      I don’t know how many times my posts have not been allowed on Facebook. They are one of many Big Brother watchers & interceders. We are being taken over from within!

      • angel

        And mine as well. Will not only be Obama ..trump will soon have his genocide agenda for vets disabled and seniors.
        I cannot post on one media for protecting some who were being bullied and insulted and mocked. No matter who it is wrong. But because I do not agree With some I am shunned but the abusers march on filthy language and threats to some who don’t agree me included. So do not feel a kind. And. Trump IS part of the new world order. Get used to it . was sick world. Glad I am 67.

  • Dale Young

    The danger i this order as written is not what might be withheld from Americans, but what sorts of misinformation, propaganda, and indoctrination will distributed by these selected gov contractors. The disinformation function has been with us since WWIi.

    • Mary

      Right! Who to trust?

  • FloridaJim

    Swamp draining must move much faster. WHOM in our slimy government wants to lose his cushy job ? We have bureaucrats and their families to infest government fire 50% at once just to show how inept they are.

    • Mary

      The wheels of government turn ever too slowly!

    I’m all for free speech if it’s truthful reporting – yet what I see happening in America with 80% of the media bought and owned by Socialists ( George Sorros) who control what is reported to the public/ the pressures he puts on other media differing from his opinions and considering how miss informed and
    how miss information can play a huge part in Sedition/Treason/ Coup of a country. I’m hoping for an oversight committee to punish those who lie and cannot back up their statements with clear proof before reporting to the public and should be removed from our airways. Misinformation ( brainwashing) can be just as damaging as no free speech. Our media should be controlled and monitored by high integrity and honest people ( held at a higher standard) and not the leadership. We may need a convention of the states to return this needed oversight function back to the people. Free speech should be allowed always but if anyone reports lies or false information to the masses then they must pay dearly
    ( harsh punishment and prevention from our airways) . Social media blogs and articles must also have oversight to prevent misinformation etc. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/44f84322bc126eb94e9aac7be8c0cf5c6240402c93596c03da8066ab6e5c3922.jpg

  • Doski

    Let’s hope it will be used against those who would subvert America in pursuit of their own personal agenda.

  • ernldo

    Media lying is NOT covered by the first amendment.

  • Wondering Woman

    Congress, get your arse off the irretutable evidence that Obama is a felon, fraud and the biggest hoax ever foisted upon We the People and bring him to trial which would negate every damned thing he has done during the last 8 years.

    President Trump, if your AG refuses to act on this, fire him and every congressional member who sides with him – immediately arrest them and detain them in the ‘FEMA camps ;while awaiting trials for high treason and crimes against humanity! This should remove a lot of new world order puppets from the swamp!

    • Mary

      So much to do, so little time!
      Sadly, there are probably more land mines put into other laws.
      Hope they can all be found n eradicated within Trump’s time in office!

  • Nikita63

    I think that every single piece of so-called legislation passed into law by the Obama Administration and their equally UnAmerican leftist cohorts be repealed as the treasonous attempt to destroy the Constitutional Republic and individual freedoms and choices that they ARE!! I am a disabled Vietnam vet who served this Country FAR more Honorably than most in Government EVER HAVE and, I had a degree in government prior to that service from the same school as the Current Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Marine General Joseph Dunford, 10 years BEFORE he graduated in 1977. I am also a Tet Offensive survivor, former assistant to and protection for Medal of Honor Awardee for Valor Chaplain Charles Angelo Litekey of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade, who passed naturally 3 weeks before his 85th Birthday on January 20th, Inauguration day of this year. I also spent my last 18 months of Active Army service on the Combat Traumatic Amputee wards at Walter Reed Army Medical Center when it was located in Washington, D.C. and I had to put up with useless and criminal Congress cretins who demanded and GOT better CARE SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE PART OF THE RULING OLIGARCHY, WHICH IS IN ITSELF A VIOLATION OF THEIR OATHS OF OFFICE! You asked what I thought? There you have it and, EVERY BIT OF IT BASED ON 72 YEARS OF A GOOD FORMAL EDUCATION AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCE! The current attacks on the first and second amendments are to silence dissent and prevent defense by LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS, of ABUSES FOMENTED UPON THEM BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT AND AN INVASION OF TERRORISTS, JIHADIST MUSLIMS, DRUG CARTELS, ILLEGALS AND ISIS INFILTRATORS AMONG THE NEVER VETTED ISLAMIC “SO-CALLED REFUGEES. Be prepared and aware of what is to come because it IS coming! Your own worthless government will see to it!

  • Mad Scientist

    Only Uncle Sam could come up with this sort of vague horses*** that could easily be twisted and abused.

  • Mary

    Think the government has done an over reach of powers.

  • MajJohn

    The vast majority of the news is news I don’t like. I doubt that this is going to effect the media.

  • Euclid22

    This Obama law is now going to the Supreme Court. Since it violates the US Constitution, it will be made null and void.
