Any technique that efficiently manipulates public opinion is certain to be repeated, and we will now clearly see how the tobacco {industry}’s playbook is getting used to form the general public narrative about COVID-19 and the projected post-COVID period.

In 2011, after a few years of elevating consciousness relating to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and industrial agriculture, we determined we would have liked a brand new recreation plan. Educating individuals by way of our e-newsletter was nice, however we realized one of the simplest ways to reveal Monsanto — a number one GMO advocate and patented seed proprietor on the time — was to get them to have interaction instantly and guarantee nationwide consideration.

To that finish, Mercola.com funded the signature gathering in California that initiated Proposition 37, the best to know what’s in your meals by making certain correct GMO labeling. We spent greater than $1 million for the Prop 37 initiative, plus a number of million {dollars} extra for GMO labeling initiatives in different U.S. states within the following years.

This initiative pressured Monsanto to have interaction with the general public on to defend their poisonous merchandise and harmful enterprise practices, all whereas receiving nationwide protection within the course of. 

The Monsanto Case

Monsanto spent tens of tens of millions of {dollars} attacking anybody of their means, however they did so not directly, similar to the tobacco {industry} did earlier than them. That is the core take-home of what I’m about to explain subsequent.

They used a public relations workforce to do most of their soiled work — paying scientists and teachers to voice their “impartial opinions,” influencing scientific journals, and getting journalists and editorial boards to write down favorable and influential items to assist them keep their lies and affect minds.

Nonetheless, whereas the spending of tens of tens of millions of {dollars} to affect voters resulted in a slim defeat of Prop 37, the brand new, widespread consciousness of GMOs, pesticides and industrial agriculture ultimately led to Monsanto’s demise.

In 2013, in a last-ditch effort to salvage its tarnished picture, Monsanto employed the PR agency Ketchum. As famous in a HuffPost article by Paul Thacker,1 “Monsanto hit reboot with Ketchum,” which “created a marketing campaign known as GMO Solutions, and used social media and third-party scientists to supply a counter narrative to allay concern about Monsanto’s merchandise.”

The GMO Solutions’ web site is about as much as enable professors at public universities reply GMO questions from the general public — supposedly with out remuneration from the {industry}. However through the years, proof emerged exhibiting that these teachers are removed from impartial, and sometimes find yourself getting paid for his or her contributions by way of hidden means, comparable to unrestricted grants.

College of Florida professor Kevin Folta is one distinguished instance described in my 2016 article “Scientific American — Another Monsanto Bedfellow.” In that article, I additionally evaluate how GMO Solutions co-sponsored a panel dialogue about GMOs in March that yr with the media and partnerships division of Scientific American.

On the time, Jeremy Abatte, vp and writer of Scientific American, insisted the occasion was not a Ketchum occasion however a Scientific American occasion. Few purchased his reasoning although, and lots of ended up submitting Scientific American into the chemical biotech shill class.

Having purchased Monsanto on the finish of 2016, Bayer continued the technique to depend on PR companies for public acceptance. Within the article2 “Bayer’s Shady PR Companies: Fleishmanhillard, Ketchum, FTI Consulting,” U.S. Proper to Know critiques the numerous deception scandals involving these companies. A key discovery was proof exhibiting “there are goal methods to silence sturdy voices.”

After investigating the methods utilized by Monsanto and Bayer, we will now see that the identical playbook is being utilized by Massive Tech and Massive Pharma to form the general public narratives about COVID-19 and the Nice Reset. Once more, a central side of those campaigns is to silence critics, specifically these with massive on-line followings, together with yours really.

I’ve been publicly labeled a “national security threat” to the U.Okay. by Imran Ahmed, a member of the Steering Committee on Countering Extremism Pilot Job Pressure underneath the British authorities’s Fee for Countering Extremism and the chief govt of the Centre for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH).

In response to Ahmed, I and others who query the protection and necessity of a COVID-19 vaccine could also be vulnerable to violent extremism. This defamatory assertion clearly has no foundation in actuality in any way. Quite, it’s a part of the propaganda aimed toward destroying the opposition — on this case the opposition to the technocrats driving the Great Reset agenda, which spans throughout social, financial and well being associated sectors.

As reported by the Nationwide Vaccine Info Middle, which was additionally on the CCDH record of nationwide safety threats:3

“The anonymously funded CCDH additionally has an workplace in Washington, D.C. and the defamatory publicity marketing campaign created in December 2020 was designed to not solely discredit NVIC’s four-decade public report of working inside the U.S. democratic system to safe vaccine security and knowledgeable consent protections in public well being insurance policies and legal guidelines, however to destroy our small charity.”

Publicis Is an Organizing Pressure within the Nice Reset Deception

Public deception is now being carried out at a mass scale, and the entire thing seems to be led and arranged by one other main PR agency, this time the Publicis Groupe, self-described as “one of many world’s largest communications teams,”4 which represents main firms inside the expertise, pharmaceutical and banking industries.

These firms, in flip, have numerous partnerships with the U.S. authorities and international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Publicis itself can be a accomplice of the World Financial Discussion board,5 which is main the decision for a “reset” of the worldwide economic system and an entire overhaul of our lifestyle.6 As you will notice, Publicis’ fingerprints may be discovered all through the web of censorship and misdirection that’s now being forged throughout the digital panorama.

The Publicis Groupe has manipulated what individuals take into consideration business merchandise for almost a century. Over that century, they’ve purchased or partnered with focused promoting avenues, starting with newspapers, adopted by radio, TV, cinema and the web. Extra lately, they’ve branched into Massive Knowledge acquisitions and synthetic intelligence platforms.

To grasp the ability PR firms comparable to Publicis have right this moment, it is advisable perceive the function of the free press. Whereas pro-industry promoting labored properly for many years, there was nonetheless the irksome drawback of the Fourth Property, a time period that refers back to the press.

The issue for {industry} was that skilled investigative journalists working for magazines, newspapers and broadcast retailers would write in-depth exposés, outing the reality behind misleading promoting and countering {industry} propaganda with science, statistics and different documented details — and when a free press with sincere reporting based mostly on verifiable details really does its job, ineffective or poisonous merchandise are pushed off the market.

The reply that {industry} got here up with within the late twentieth century to fight reality in journalism was, pure and easy, to regulate the Fourth Property with promoting {dollars}. Information organizations will merely not run stories that may hurt the underside line of its advertisers.

By additional partnering with the “large weapons” of media — such because the Paley Middle for Media — Publicis and its {industry} purchasers have been in a position to affect and management the press to limit, certainly nearly get rid of, your potential to get the reality on many essential points.

Publicis, Massive Pharma and NewsGuard

To start out off this sprawling net of {industry} connections surrounding Publicis, let’s take a look at its connections to the self-appointed web watchdog NewsGuard. NewsGuard charges web sites on standards of “credibility” and “transparency,” ostensibly to information viewers to essentially the most dependable sources of stories and data.

In actuality, nevertheless, NewsGuard finally ends up appearing as a gate keeper with a mission to barricade unpopular reality and variations of opinion behind closed gates. Its clearly biased rating system simply dissuades individuals from perusing data from low-rated websites, mine included. 

NewsGuard obtained a big chunk of its startup capital from Publicis. NewsGuard additionally has ties to The Paley Middle for Media, talked about earlier. For clarification, The Paley Middle consists of each main media on this planet, together with Microsoft, AOL, CBS, Fox and Tribune Media. One in all its actions is to sponsor an annual international discussion board for {industry} leaders.7

NewsGuard is housed in The Paley Middle in New York Metropolis. In November 2015, Publicis’ chairman of North America, Susan Gianinno, joined The Paley Middle’s board of trustees.8

Leo Hindery,9,10 a former enterprise accomplice of the co-CEOs of NewsGuard, Steven Brill and Gordon Crovitz, can be a former trustee and director of The Paley Middle. Taken collectively, NewsGuard has pretty influential connections to The Paley Middle in addition to being a tenant of their constructing.

As talked about, Publicis represents a lot of the main pharmaceutical firms on this planet, and since a lot of its income comes from the drug {industry}, it’s not far-fetched to imagine Publicis may affect NewsGuard’s rankings of drug {industry} opponents, comparable to various well being websites.

Publicis, Massive Pharma, NewsGuard and Massive Tech

Subsequent, let’s add a layer of Massive Tech into the combination. Publicis, which represents Massive Pharma, not solely has the power to affect the general public by way of NewsGuard, however it’s additionally a Google accomplice,11,12 which permits it even better potential to bury undesirable views that may damage its clientele. 

NewsGuard can be partnered with Microsoft, initially by way of Microsoft’s Defending Democracy Program.13 By an expanded partnership introduced in 2020, Microsoft Edge customers gained entry to NewsGuard free of charge, and Microsoft Bing gained entry to NewsGuard’s knowledge.14

Publicis, Pharma, NewsGuard, Massive Tech, Authorities and NGOs

Increasing the net additional onto authorities and NGO territory, we discover that NewsGuard can be linked to the U.S. State Division, the U.S. Division of Protection and the World Well being Group. All three are listed as NewsGuard companions.15 NewsGuard can be partnered with:16

  • Public libraries
  • Colleges
  • MSN
  • Bing
  • Pattern Micro and lots of others

To summarize, the net round Publicis now contains worldwide drug firms, NewsGuard, Google, Microsoft, the U.S. State Division and DoD, the WHO and the World Financial Discussion board. Thoughts you, this isn’t a complete evaluate of hyperlinks. It’s merely a sampling of entities to provide you an concept of the breadth of those connections, which when taken collectively clarify how sure views may be so successfully erased.

Add in ‘Anti-Hate’ Group and Google-Trusted Well being Websites

However we’re not performed but. NewsGuard’s health-related service known as HealthGuard17 can be partnered with WebMD, Medscape and the CCDH — the progressive cancel-culture chief18 with intensive ties to authorities and international assume tanks that lately labeled individuals questioning the COVID-19 vaccine as nationwide safety threats.

In 2017, WebMD was acquired by Internet Brands, an organization underneath the worldwide funding agency Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) umbrella. KKR additionally owns a number of different health-related web manufacturers. Since WebMD owned Medscape, it too now belongs to the KKR Web Manufacturers as properly.

Collectively, HealthGuard, CCDH, WebMD and Medscape have launched a public service marketing campaign known as VaxFacts. The purpose of the marketing campaign is to “present details and instruments to assist customers make knowledgeable choices about vaccines,” WebMD stories.19

In tandem with that marketing campaign, Google is funding fact-checking organizations to the tune of $3 million, with the goal of countering “vaccine misinformation,” and NewsGuard maintains a “Coronavirus Misinformation Monitoring Middle” that features a “Prime COVID-19 Vaccine Myths Tracker.”20

WebMD dominates well being searches performed by way of Google and shares consumer data with Google’s promoting arm and different third-party companies — a observe that’s unlawful in Europe.

What this implies is DoubleClick, Google’s advert service, is aware of which prescriptions you’ve looked for on the location, thus offering you with personalised drug adverts, and Fb is aware of what you’ve looked for in WebMD’s symptom checker, in addition to any medical diagnoses you obtained. I reviewed these findings in “WebMD and Healthline exposed Violating Your Privacy.”

Since most of its income comes from promoting, WebMD is much from an impartial supply of well-researched well being information. For instance, it has been caught shilling for Monsanto, publishing industry-friendly “articles” which might be actually paid ads recognized within the media world as advertorials.

Ten years in the past, WebMD was additionally caught publishing a fake online depression screening test. In fact, it was an promoting trick for the antidepressant Cymbalta, and there was no means for check takers to get a clear invoice of psychological well being.

Abstract

So, to recap, we discover connections between the drug {industry}, NewsGuard/HealthGuard, academic establishments, Massive Tech firms like Google, Microsoft and Bing, the U.S. State Division and DoD, international technocratic establishments just like the WHO, nationwide and international NGOs just like the CCDH and the World Financial Discussion board, and dominating well being web sites like WebMD and Medscape.

Once more, that is removed from an exhaustive investigation of those sorts of connections. It’s merely a small sampling of readily apparent relationships. Towards the middle of this net is the Publicis Groupe, the purchasers of which embrace main drug firms, Massive Tech firms and monetary establishments in additional than 100 nations.21

By the best way, Publicis additionally started investing in synthetic intelligence expertise in 201722 and partnered with Microsoft in 2018 to develop a world AI platform.23 It additionally bought the information agency Epsilon in 2019,24 thereby establishing possession of first-party knowledge — a crucially precious useful resource with regards to using AI.

As detailed on its web site, the agency’s experience is concentrated inside 4 fundamental actions: communication, media, knowledge and expertise (together with AI providers), and all purchasers have entry to its experience in all of those areas.

Whereas it’s simple to dismiss Publicis as simply one other advert company, I imagine it will be silly to underestimate its energy to prepare the form of coordination required to close down vaccine issues, anti-lockdown proponents and other people attempting to teach their fellow man in regards to the risks of the Nice Reset, which is being introduced forth as a “mandatory” post-COVID step.

Whereas these items could seem unrelated, they’re actually not. As talked about, the Nice Reset includes every part — together with well being, schooling, authorities, economics, redistribution of wealth, enterprise practices, environmental “protections” and rather more.

What Can You Do?

Every thing we all know is about to vary, and people who disagree with the mainstream narrative are troublemakers that should be silenced, lest the plan get pushed off-track by an unwilling public.

The reply to this dilemma is transparency. We should expose the machinations that enable this agenda to be pushed ahead. A part of that publicity is trying on the function of huge PR firms like Publicis, which helps affect the general public thoughts in order that the technocrats can keep their lies till it’s too late to do something about it.

Keep in mind we DEFEATED Monsanto and we are going to defeat this menace to our freedom too. We merely allowed the general public to be taught the true reality in regards to the points, and that triggered Monsanto’s collapse.

I’m presently working with a number of the brightest minds within the tech area —cybersecurity consultants and billionaire philanthropists who’re very properly networked. These people are dedicated to preserving your private freedoms and liberties. We’re in search of to contain a large redo of your entire web that won’t enable tech monopolies the power to censor the reality as a result of it occurs to battle with their advertisers.

There was an growing name for the decentralization of the Web as expressed on this article on Coin Telegraph last week. This may imply that moderately than websites being hosted on centralized servers in a single location their content material could be saved and served from 1000’s if not tens of millions of computer systems everywhere in the world making it nearly unimaginable to censor or shut down.

We’re in search of to implement a technique that Tim Berners-Lee is proposing. For these of you who don’t know, Berners-Lee is the person who gave us the world broad net graphical interface of the web, and he didn’t take a penny for it. Had he licensed this expertise, he certainly could be the richest particular person on this planet right this moment.

You possibly can learn extra about Berners-Lee’s plan on this February 5, 2021, article in The Conversation,25 however basically in includes knowledge sovereignty, supplying you with management over your knowledge and privateness. So, what are you able to do?

Please perceive you play a VERY essential, if not essential function on this course of. The primary a part of the technique is to repeat what we did with Monsanto and expose their plans. So, if in case you have any curiosity in preserving your freedoms, I strongly encourage you to share this text and my video with everybody you understand so individuals can begin to perceive how they’re being manipulated. It will successfully “immunize” them towards the propaganda.
