H.R. 4310: Bill 'Legalizing' Government Propaganda Against Americans Passes House 299-120

Bipartisan Congressional Bill Would Authorize the Use of Propaganda On Americans Living Inside America

An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill [HR 4310]....

The amendment [#114; H.R. 5736 pdf] would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the Pentagon, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee's official website.

The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987—that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns.

The bi-partisan amendment is sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry from Texas and Rep. Adam Smith from Washington State.

The bill's supporters say the informational material used overseas to influence foreign audiences is too good to not use at home, and that new techniques are needed to help fight Al-Qaeda, a borderless enemy whose own propaganda reaches Americans online.

The new law would give sweeping powers to the State Department and Pentagon to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. “It removes the protection for Americans,” says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. “It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.”

The defense bill passed the House Friday afternoon [299-120].
re: 'No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false'

Making propaganda legal? From global warming to 9/11 to GWOT to presidential birth certificates, as ever-increasing numbers of people are finally coming to realize, the above statement, unfortunately, is already the way it is. The so-called msm is already the NWO Bureau of Propaganda and working overtime like nothing ever seen. Nevertheless, the global agend-izers apparently are now preparing to take things to the next level, which would have to come in under the classification of open Orwellianism. That's the one where all pretense of legitimacy is abandoned and all the little slaves just settle down happily into their little green alternate realities created especially for them by the Big Brother 666 beast, and live and serve him worshipfully ever after. Be aware. And never ever take the mark [here].
Rev. 14:9-10 'And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb'

China bought AMC movie theatres today, (05-21-12) and Congress passed the National Defense Act containing a provision to use propoganda inside our own country. Now we can give China the contract to play these movie trailers produced by the Chinese Government to brainwash Americans to give up their guns and accept National Socialism and Communism. Your children will be taught to turn you in if you speak ill of the Government.

Just to clarify, the National Defense bill has not been passed by the Senate yet. It has passed the House though.

(H.R. 4310) was passed by the House, on Friday afternoon, with a vote of 299-120
