Fake News

All posts tagged Fake News

There are not many people, who by now, are not aware of the image published on the Mirror website, which pictured a four-year-old child, with suspected pneumonia, lying on top of a pile of coats, upon the floor of a side room in Leeds General Infirmary.

The Mirror, then switches to the real purpose of its article:

Jack shows the human cost of the harshest ever financial squeeze on the NHS, a damning indictment of the Tories’ criminal neglect.

No wonder Jack’s mother is switching from the Tories to Labour on Thursday.

This article is then picked up with what appears to be indecent haste, and within hours, is being paraded around the mass media by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, and a small – but disturbingly fanatical – army of online activists and cheerleaders.

The article continues:

The staff are blameless, performing miracles despite the cuts. As are hard-pressed managers, coping best they can with the bad hands dealt them by successive Conservative regimes.

I am not going into the obvious issues with the NHS here, nor why it has reached what seems to be critical mass, there is plenty of source material available online, which explains in finite detail the real reasons behind that, and who is ultimately responsible.

What I am going to do is focus on is the image, and how it has been shamelessly weaponised by the Labour Party.

The image in question, has itself become the focus of claims as to its authenticity, and its context, inasmuch as a viral post on Facebook, which claims that the image was staged, has been gaining traction in the mass media.

The response to this online, is that the Facebook post, is of course, complete fiction, and is being circulated by, wait for it, ‘Right Wing Bots’.

One source of that claim, is a blogger calling himself ‘Tom Pride’, who has, for the last few years, been pumping hard-left propaganda focussing on the UK, and attacking anyone who does not support Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party, from his base in Poland.

[Which of course does not mean that there is any suspicion whatsoever, of any ‘foreign interference’ in the electoral process, a claim that politicians and the mass media, on both sides of the Atlantic love to talk about.]

The truth of this, I am sure will emerge in the fullness of time, but the fact remains that using a distressed child as a political tool with which to attack political enemies, is a despicable thing to do.

It’s beneath contempt.

Neither side of the political divide are blameless in this, and it was not so long ago,  that the Grenfell fire tragedy was being utilised by both sides, in their attempts to point the finger of blame at each other.

Is it worth mentioning, that one of the reasons why many people believe that picture was ‘staged’ for the media, is because it’s not the first time that the Labour Party have posted faked and/or staged images for political gain?

Remember this one?

That doctored image, led to the party being investigated for spreading fake news, and were slammed by the NHS itself, as they had not sought permission to use its logo.

This image may be familiar too.

A blatant example of the use of a staged photograph of Jeremy Corbyn, sitting with a despondent look on his face, on the floor of a train, in a crass attempt to highlight the overcrowding on that particular railway network.

He was accused of ‘Hypocrisy’ and ‘spin’ by the Telegraph, after CCTV revealed that he did in fact have a seat, despite claiming that the train was so ‘ram packed’ he had to sit on the floor!

This post is not ‘Pro’ or ‘Anti’ anybody, I am on the whole, pretty much disgusted by the behaviour of all the political parties, who are scrabbling in the gutter, and clawing and biting and spitting bile at each other in their attempts to reach the moral high ground first.

They have all failed miserably on that score in my opinion.

There are, however, many positives to take from this, as it must now appear glaringly obvious to anyone, that politicians and political parties, of all colours; lie, cheat, mislead, spread fake news, stage photo opportunities, and above all of that, have shown utter contempt for the very people they claim to represent.

It’s little wonder that this country has become a laughing stock in the eyes of the rest of the world, and going on what is currently happening, and shows no sign of going away any time soon, the political class do not actually give a damn.


UPDATE: 

You don’t have to look very hard these days, to find examples of how the mainstream media can twist things to suit whatever narrative they are pushing at any particular moment in time.

Only yesterday for example, the Guardian newspaper published an article, in regard to the claim that Tommy Robinson has launched a public appeal to request that US President Donald Trump, grant him ‘Political Asylum’, because of fears that he may be murdered if sent to prison, after recently being convicted on a contempt charge.

The Guardian, as expected, goes with the headline ‘Tommy Robinson Begs Donald Trump to grant him political asylum in US’, and the journalist goes on to state in the article [in their usual smug and self-righteous manner] that Robinson also ‘alleges’ that ‘British Prisons are controlled by jihadi gangs’.

Upon reading that article, many people would come to the conclusion that Tommy Robinson, is somewhat delusional, and has plucked his claim out of the sky, with little to support it apart from his paranoia, [which is entirely understandable] if that article was taken at face value, which, if I had to guess, is its main and only intention.

So where would Tommy Robinson get the idea that British Prisons are filled with Islamist extremists, who would attempt to kill him should they be given the opportunity?

Apart from the evidence of his own most recent experience of entering the prison system that is?

“A review of Islamist extremism in prisons, probation and youth justice that was commissioned by the government in 2015 found it was a “growing problem”.

Perhaps it could have been from articles like this, published only last year, which the above quote was taken from, and were published in a number of newspapers, including the Guardian, and strangely enough, was written by the same journalist.

In 2015, Islamic Extremism was shown to be a ‘growing problem within British prisons’, and as no contrary reports have emerged in the mainstream media or elsewhere, since then, would it be fair to assume that this particular issue is still a cause for concern for people like Tommy Robinson – or for that matter, anybody who has publicly identified problems in this country, that the left-wing media are desperately trying to deflect the public’s attention from ?

As the march towards the complete suppression of Free Speech, independent thought and deed and any alternative to the mainstream narrative of the state gathers pace – would it come as any surprise to learn that the BBC (and undoubtedly other mass media juggernauts), have now started to target those who are seen as the citizenry of the future?

In the following BBC article, published in December last year, it was noted that from this month, Secondary Schools and sixth forms across this country are going to be ‘Targeted’ by BBC Journalists:

in an attempt to go into schools to speak to young people and give them the equipment they need to distinguish between what’s true and what’s false….”

Is it a coincidence that this is being implemented in the same month that a BBC news team was captured on video admitting that they were going to report on a mostly peaceful, non-political march organised by the FLA against terrorism and extremism in the centre of Birmingham, as being an ‘Extreme Right Wing Event’, and which despite the gathering being nothing of the sort, did not prevent other left-wing Anti Racist media outlets and groups labeling it as being:

‘avowedly racist and Islamophobic. The sharp trajectory rightwards that Stand up to Racism has repeatedly warned of was clearly visible’.

So what exactly are the BBC going to be teaching our kids?

How to identify genuine instances of ‘Fake News’ …. or to adhere to the official narrative being peddled by the mass media arm of the state and attack anyone who questions it?

‘The BBC is launching a new scheme to help young people identify real news and filter out fake or false information.

The project is targeted at secondary schools and sixth forms across the UK.

From March, up to 1,000 schools will be offered mentoring in class and online to help them spot so-called fake news.

BBC journalists including Kamal Ahmed, Tina Daheley, Amol Rajan and Huw Edwards will also take part in events aimed at helping students.

James Harding, the director of BBC News, said: “This is an attempt to go into schools to speak to young people and give them the equipment they need to distinguish between what’s true and what’s false.”

The move follows a year-long study, conducted by the University of Salford in conjunction with BBC Newsround, looking at how well children aged between 9 and 14 can spot false information.

Although most of the children from across all age groups said they knew what fake news was, many of them could not always distinguish between fake and real stories when presented with them.’

If 2016 was the ‘Year of the Snowflake’, then going on what has already been witnessed, 2017 may well turn out to be the ‘Year of the ‘Chilling Effect’.

The established order, and their partners-in-crime the mass media have, since the advent of the internet, been steadily losing the stranglehold they previously enjoyed over what people were allowed to read, see on the television and ultimately believe what was really going on in the world.

And that situation, as you can imagine, cannot, and will not be allowed to continue for much longer.

Putting aside the various elected governments, who are nothing more than the public face of the established order and their various agencies, the mass media are without doubt, the single most powerful agents of change there are, and have been hemorrhaging both their revenue and their audience to any number of the alternative online news outlets and social media feeds that are out there.

The mass media and the establishment are virtually indistinguishable in their objectives to control what people see, what they eat, what they wear, what is healthy, what is harmful and everything else in between – and only a fool would think otherwise as the evidence of this can be seen everywhere in modern society.

From what I have been seeing for myself, and what increasing numbers of concerned readers have been contacting me about, the fightback by the establishment against those who are publishing online what is really going on, has now reached a stage which is becoming not only obvious, but impossible to ignore.

The most noticeable effect of this fightback, is the number of alternative (to the establishment narrative) websites, social media and Youtube accounts that have been suspended or disappeared altogether recently, and increasing numbers of previously popular and informative articles and websites are being ‘de-listed’ from the largest search engines, effectively making them difficult to find.

I have been aware for a while that a number of articles that have been previously published on the Outlaw, despite their daily views increasing, have now disappeared from Google searches altogether, and that can also be said of other similar websites, who’s owners have contacted me over the same issue.

The agents of the establishment who operate within the mass media are easy to identify and make no attempt to disguise where their real allegiences lie, and can for the purpose of this article, be dismissed, as their objectives are clear to anyone with a functioning brain – the biggest threat that purveyors of the truth are facing, are those that the title of this post refer to.

‘Les Gardiens Des Portes’ (The Guardians of the Gates), or the establishment ‘Gatekeepers’ are by far among the most prolific, insidious, duplicitous and ultimately dangerous entities that can be encountered online ….

The main problem with Gatekeepers is that they are not easily identifiable, and operate not only within the mass media, but also within the so-called ‘Alternative Media’, on all social media platforms, on most of the ‘Truther’  forums and message boards, and unsurprisingly, have also commanded the biggest online audiences over the last few years.

You only have to look at how mainly fictious events like ‘Pizzagate‘ for example, have managed to gain so much traction online over the last few months, sending ‘Truthers’ scurrying all over the place rabidly chasing down any ‘evidence’ to support some of the most outlandish claims ever published, while effectively clogging up news feeds and burying any credible information that may have emerged during that time.

There is a purpose to this, and it is the Gatekeepers main role to ensure that ‘Fake News’ is always  foremost in peoples minds, in order to negate and distract from the truth, and to generally confuse and bamboozle.

For those of you who are still able to see past the white noise and bullshit, the Gatekeepers secondary role is to bring about a ‘Chilling Effect’ on whistleblowers and the truth tellers by using methods that are becoming more and more commonplace, as many of the recipients can and will testify to.

One method used is to utilise UK Harassment and Malicious Communication laws to silence people, by reporting blog articles and/or the comments, Forum/Messageboard posts, Tweets, and Facebook posts to the police to try and establish a ‘course of conduct’ against anyone who has highlighted their activities.

This has been shown to be a fairly common tactic, as I am aware of at least eight instances where people who have been clearly harassed, threatened, cyber-stalked and bullied online for many months and even years by Gatekeepers and their followers, have found themselves on the wrong side of the law for simply trying to highlight what has happened to them.

I am also aware of a number of court cases that are scheduled to be heard in 2017, which if they go according to plan, will bring about legislation to further restrict free and independent speech on the internet ….

I have been meaning to write about something that has been discussed a lot over the years, especially among those in the Alternative Media, which is the claim that Adolf Hitler was a direct descendant of the Rothschild family.

It is entirely possible that the source of that story, was an article ‘Was Adolf Hitler a Rothschild?’, published in 2003 by one of the AM’s biggest hitters, who’s name is undoubtably familiar to anybody who has logged onto the internet, but also to many of those who haven’t.

‘Official history is merely a veil to hide the truth of what really happened. When the veil is lifted, again and again we see that not only is the official version not true, it is often 100% wrong.’

The opening lines of the article are 100% factual, as anyone who has studied real history would agree with I should imagine, but in little over a paragraph later, the writer adds the line:

‘The Rothschild’s are one of the top Illuminati bloodlines on the planet and they are shape-shifting reptilians’.

Which, when included in an article which tries to convince the reader that Adolf Hitler and the Nazi’s were not only created and funded by the Rothschilds, but Hitler himself shared their bloodline as a direct descendant, (and a shape-shifting reptilian) seems a rather odd thing to do if you want that article to be taken seriously.

The article’s author, in this instance appears to base his claim on: ‘According to a book by psychoanalyst Walter Langer called The Mind of Hitler, not only was Hitler supported by the Rothschilds – he WAS a Rothschild’

The original article did not include sourceable links, but a search brought up a brief description of the book in question which reads:

A secret wartime 281 page report, authored by Walter C. Langer in 1943. Office of Stategic Services director General William J. Donovan suggested to psychologist Walter C. Langer that a psychological profile of Adolf Hitler needed to be developed. It was hoped that an accurate study would be helpful in gaining a deeper insight into Adolf Hitler and the German people and that the study might serve as a guide for ‘Allied Propaganda’ activities as well as for future dealings with Hitler and the Germans. Langer produced the report, “A Psychological Analysis of Adolph Hitler: His Life and Legend”, with the help of Professor Henry A. Murray, of the Harvard Psychological Clinic, Dr. Ernst Kris, of the New School for Social Research, and Dr. Bertram D. Lewin, of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute.’

And the report itself, for those who wish to investigate the claims further, can be read online at The Virtual Jewish Library  and is where the paragraph below is taken from:

“Though the idea may seem preposterous to some, the question seems to stem from the remote possibility that Hitler’s grandfather was Jewish. Hitler’s father, Alois, was registered as an illegitimate child with no father when born in 1837 and to this day Hitler’s paternal grandfather is unknown. Alois’ mother, Maria Schicklgruber, is known to have worked in the home of a wealthy Jew, so there is some chance, however small, that a son in that household got Hitler’s grandmother pregnant.”

The author of the ‘Was Hitler a Rothschild’ article states:

“Adolf’s father, Alois Hitler, was the illegitimate son of Maria Anna Schicklgruber. It was generally supposed that the father of Alois Hitler (Schicklgruber) was Johann Georg Hiedler. There are some people who seriously doubt that Johann Georg Hiedler was the father of Alois (an Austrian document was) prepared that proved Maria Anna Schicklgruber was living in Vienna at the time she conceived. At that time she was employed as a servant in the home of Baron Rothschild. As soon as the family discovered her pregnancy she was sent back home, where Alois was born.”

Which claims that Maria Anna Schicklgruber became pregnant during the time she was ’employed as a servant at the home of Baron Rothschild’.

From what I can ascertain, the article author (along with many others previously) has mistakenly (or not) linked Hitler’s lineage with the Rothschild’s, entirely based on the single testimony of one Hans Frank, a member of the Nazi Party, who later became Adolf Hitler’s personal lawyer.

Hans Frank

‘During his tenure throughout WWII (1939–45), Hans Frank instituted a reign of terror against the civilian population. At the Nuremberg Trials he was found guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity and was executed’.WIKIPEDIA

Frank, who was a prisoner of the Allies in Poland following the war, stated while in captivity:

“I must say that it is not completely impossible, that the father, Alois Hitler,was therefore, a half-Jew from the illegitimate connection of Maria Schickelgruber with the Grazer Jew. Then, therefore, Hitler himself would have been a quarter Jew. Then his Anti-Semitism would have been caused from a blood-indignant related psychosis. Who may be able to interpret all that!”

For Frank’s story to have been correct, a Jew named ‘Frankenberger’ would have to have lived in Graz in 1836, and Maria Schicklgruber would have also needed to be there at the same time, and there is no evidence to support this. Neither can it be proved that there were any Jews living in the German language area of Graz with the name Frankenberger in the 19th Century.

Gerrard Kessler discovered in 1935 not one instance of that name, and the following historical fact should also be taken into account: “In Graz there were, since the end of the 15th Century until the decade after the death of Maria Schickelgruber, no residents in the area who were Jews”.

The consensus, therefore, is that there is no definitive proof that Maria worked at that particular residence, and no historian or genealogist who has researched the Hitler family line, has found any evidence of the true identity of Hitler’s grandfather ….  And there were no Jewish residents in Graz.

Hitler’s ancestry first came into question when his political opponents began spreading rumours that his paternal grandfather was Jewish since one of Nazism’s major principles was that to be considered a pure “Aryan” one had to have a documented ancestry certificate (Ahnenpass).

In 1931 Hitler ordered the Schutzstaffel (SS) to investigate the alleged rumours regarding his ancestry; they found no evidence of any Jewish ancestors.

There has always been a great deal of speculation surrounding Hitler’s ancestry, but none of it is based on verifiable facts. The only thing known for certain is that Hitler’s father Alois, was born in 1837, and that Johann Georg Heidler would later admit to being his father. In 1876, Alois changed his name officially from Schicklgruber to Heidler, which was written as ‘Hitler’ since 1877.

Even if you put aside Werner Maser’s assertion that Maria refused to reveal who her child’s father was, the claim that Adolf Hitler was the grandson of a Rothschild is speculation, based on rumour at best, and has no evidence whatsoever to support it.

Which brings me onto the other claim in the article, that the Rothschilds are ‘Shape-Shifting Reptilians’.

The truth of which will be the subject of another article which will be published on the Outlaw in the New Year.

While the mainstream media continues to pump out seemingly endless fluff about “fake news“, the alternative media, (and what appears to be the rest of the Internet) has gone completely batshit crazy over “Pizzagate“….

In the meantime, a huge child sex abuse story has broken in Norway following a year-long special investigation called “Operation Darkroom”, which resulted in the seizure of 150 terabytes of data material in the form of photos, movies and chat logs containing atrocities against children and babies.

150 Terabytes of material!

The sheer scale of this seizure was unprecedented, has global implications, involves a number of people believed to be among the higher echelons of Norwegian society and the establishment, and is being viewed as part of the largest child porn/abuse network in history.

So why aren’t the mainstream media reporting on it?

Why are most of the alternative media, the so-called ‘truth movement’ and the social media self-styled Paedohunters and CSA ‘Campaigners’ not all over it too?
