Beware – Disinformation’s Parallel Universe

Disinformation

In quantum mechanics, a “parallel universe” imagines another alongside our own – but undetectable. That is what we seem to see in “disinformation” today. Follow me. This is weirder than it sounds.

On one hand, we have Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and just about anyone with a social media account creating “disinformation,” or false facts and narratives to advance their ugly cause, feeding these storylines from overseas to naïve information consumers in the United States.

Nodes, codes, and competing narratives, many cross-fertilizing each other’s divisive, Marxist communist, anti-freedom angle are increasingly common, with countless attempts pushed daily. Readers must, of course, be savvy. Americans are gradually getting more that way, thankfully.

Back in Voice of America days, we vigorously broadcast into Eastern Europe – not lies, but the value and promise in freedom, equality, individual liberties, Bill of Rights, chance to speak, worship, defend, earn, live and stay free, avoiding repression. We pushed the idea of freedom, the advantages of representative democracy, self-determination, human rights, and the American quality of life.

In that round – call it “round one” – we prevailed. Soviet Union fell, Eastern Europe soon after, and the power of self-determination and individual liberty spread like wildfire. Then, we found the Soviet beast had a brother in Communist China, and was not dead, with Mr. Gorbachev a KGB holdover.  

What we have seen lately is coordination of “disinformation” campaigns by Russia, China, and others, taking the idea of spreading rumors and false stories to a new level, effectively reawakening an idea hatched by Stalin in 1923 –pushing the “disinformation” throttle up, making heads spin.

All this is something most know, but here is the real “parallel universe.” If you go on the State Department’s website, you see references to “disinformation” – how Biden’s team manages “truth” and counters international falsehoods.

Referring to our adversaries, Biden’s team says: “Disinformation is one of the Kremlin’s most important and far-reaching weapons. Russia has operationalized the concept of perpetual adversarial competition in the information environment by encouraging the development of a disinformation and propaganda ecosystem. This ecosystem creates and spreads false narratives to strategically advance the Kremlin’s policy goals. There is no subject off-limits to this firehose of falsehoods.”

They add: “Truth disarms Russia’s disinformation weapons. The Kremlin creates and spreads disinformation in an attempt to confuse and overwhelm people…Disinformation is a quick and fairly cheap way to destabilize societies and set the stage for potential military action.”

To State’s credit, they note “the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials as well as official media routinely amplify Kremlin propaganda, conspiracy theories, and disinformation.” Yes, they do.

But pause. Consider something else – a parallel universe. What would happen if the Biden team – although unconstitutional – used these same “disinformation” techniques, but turned inward?  

What if, instead of the words “Kremlin” and “Russia,” we substituted “Democratic Party” above?  Reread the above passages – written by the Biden Administration – but substitute the word “Democratic Party” for “Kremlin” and “Russia.” Then ask, does this sound oddly familiar?  

Consider an “alternate universe” closer to home. Consider the new organization within Homeland Security called a “Disinformation Governance Board” – led by a Democrat Party operative who undercut the 2020 Hunter Biden laptop story, potentially influencing 2020, all now true.

At no prior time have we had a “disinformation board,” closely paralleling outward descriptions of Stalin’s 1923 board if you reread history. While Biden is not Stalin, any government at any time can conclude that controlling information is in their interest. That is why we have a First Amendment.

Already, this “disinformation board” – and efforts like it limiting speech – is infuriating most Americans, including some liberals (like Jeff Bezos) who see a canary in the coal mine, or crocodile creeping on them, on all who believe in free speech, free markets, and freedom generally. 

In short, what we can do to our adversaries, nobbling how they get to us, can be reversed, coopted by political forces with overtly political, even malign aims, inside the country. The potential is serious.

These forces may be private or public but when a “disinformation board” shows up within the federal government, it is worth asking: Is that a hungry black hole, aiming to swallow truth? Is there an alternate “disinformation” universe growing – or does someone want one to grow – nearby?

The answer is honestly elusive but concerning. The existence of that body is curious, unsettling, comes with some foreboding. The US Government should not have any alternate “disinformation” universe – no disinformation board looking inward, parsing, disapproving, censoring, or “governing” truth. So, beware the “parallel universe” – it could be dangerous, not just in quantum mechanics.

Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics…derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.”-Benjamin Franklin

Wong-way Biden needs no help; a congenital liar, crook, and a traitor through his criminal family activities openly accepts million-dollar bribes from our enemies and surrounds himself with advisers proven to be utterly incompetent imbeciles incapable of logical thought. All of them; are dedicated to the overthrow of our Constitutional Federation., Three more years, and we will not have a free country. Thanks to these conspirators, we are well on our way to becoming another Venezuela. It might be prudent to get the jump on your neighbors and locate a fast-food dumpster now as your emergency food source; when the soon-to-be-empty food shelves appear.

Be very aware if they give initials and make it a cabinet post. Check the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.

To me it all comes down to a free and unbiased media. Where true ideas can be exchanged. Without the media how does free speech exist? The media presents itself in many forms, TV, Papers, Internet, the Bully Pulpit, etc., and that’s where free speech can prevail, if aloud. So, for America to get on the right track we must change the way media reports information to us, the people, by preventing false information in the first place. Tort laws should be strengthened to fine or jail people or companies from false reporting news. 2022 and 2024 cannot come fast enough where real change can happen.

Yes, a parallel universe indeed…More speech leads to conversations which can lead to solutions. Less speech benefits those who want absolute power. Lately language is being scrambled intentionally…word redefinition makes conversation difficult. That is the goal of the elite who want to control the national narrative.

These days it feels like I have passed into the world Alice found down the rabbit hole…???? check out my substack post about that…maybe you agree ????

In what parallel universe would a government bureau, created to determine truth or falsehood, be
accepted by the people?

To be candid, this situation is naturally intolerable to any who seek a free society organized according to the Constitution of the United States. The scary aspect of of this move by the Democrat Party is that it does not seem to be a joke. The Democrats actually seem to think that the people need a government to identify what is true and what is false. ……………………………………………………….. Wait a minute, those who inexplicably vote for liberal candidates really do need government help in distinguishing between reality and fantasy land.

Now I see why Joe Biden wants such a bureaucracy, he is giving his liberal acolytes a basis to justify the day-by-day Democrat Party talking points. OK, so this is just further evidence of the slave-like mentality of the average Democrat voter. One wonders how these citizens have the awareness to determine that they need to visit a restroom. Perhaps they simply follow Joe Biden’s lead and wear “Depends”?

The Lamestream Media has been doing this for quite a few years now. They are predominatly an organ of the leftist political machine. How many truly investigativ reporters can you name who are interested in the truth? Most seem only too willing to supress any story that does not align with the Leftist party lin.

Our pastor told us in 1970 that the word around Detroit was that the hippy movement leaders were upset that they didn’t convert the USA to communism and were going to get into government, the educational system, the legal system, and the news media to convert the USA to communism. Our church has been watching that happen in the years since.

But, over against all the lies of the satanic leftists stands Jesus Christ, the Way, the TRUTH, and the life. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Nero could not crush Him. Neither can Soros, AOC, and others of their ilk. But, we must always beware the lie. The only antidote is vigilance and devotion to the truth, that is, the Christ.

The parallels are striking RBC as I believe there is more than an air of truth to it!
Going back at least to 2016 if not 2014, all the stuff the Clinton operation claimed, i.e. the Russian Collusion Hoax, Alfa Bank, on Trump, he himself since cleared of any wrong doing whatsoever, was in fact committed by the HRC associates themselves where Russia is concerned…They, the Democrats commit the crime & blame it on Trump with MSM & big tech pouring more gasoline on the fire for ( 4 ) years against DJT…Amazingly enough, Trump managed to stay a good ( 3 ) steps or more ahead of MSM, the whole bunch of them for most his entire term, whilst they report on something about Trump’s latest move, the Donald was already multiple moves ahead of them, i.e. they were reporting on old news… It was almost comical to watch it play itself out as they constantly fell for it! Trump, the non-politician got quite good at playing their silly games & making complete fools out of all of them on more than one occasion…
Best regards,
Bill… :~)
