The Friday before one of the most celebrated holiday in America, Christmas. The outgoing President Barack Obama left a lump of coal in the stocking of every single American while robbing you of your liberties and freedom like a thief in the night. He signed another draconian piece of legislation, S 2943“Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017” bill into law.
The law is designed to authorize the increase in military spending of $611 billion and funds the dangerous Counter Disinformation and Anti-Propaganda Act. The inclination of the Act will criminalize what the government deems as being Fake News Propaganda. According to Wearechange.com, an essential component of the legislation is orchestrated to crack down on free speech and independent media. So that means you and I. In Layman’s terms, the act will allow the bureaucratic arm of the government to determine with impunity against any media outlet it deems “propaganda.”
Congress amended the legislation to indicate the substantial amounts of money to fund “counter propaganda,” to make sure the government’s approved stories drown out alternative media and journalists who question the status quo.
Many media headlines that I have glanced my eyes over, began with, “Obama Signed”. Valid statement because that is what he did but let us not be so nieve to ignore that HR. 5181 were sponsored by a bipartisan congress. March 2016, U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R, OH) and Chris Murphy (D, CT) colluded to write this Orwellian piece of legislation. Then the next group of assholes introduced in the United States House of Representatives, Adam Kinzinger (R, IL) and Ted Lieu (D, CA). The 1st amendment is the one Bill of Right that lucidly under attack by both sides of the aisle.
It is delusional to even remotely be surprised that Obama would not sign this anti-American/Constitution piece of legislation into law because he has done it numerous of times. While we have been distracted by some national event. The reality is that presidents have done it a multitude of times throughout history.
The term “Fake News” is just the new age perjorative for “Conspiracy Theories”. Prior to the signing of this legislation, this congress, and the Obama Administration has legalized government propaganda to be distributed by who else the MSM. With the 2013 version of National Defense Authorization Act, which completely negates the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 (SMA) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987. It is not like it has not been done years prior with programs like Operation Mocking Bird and let’s not forget about Pentagon military analyst program.
