Government Allows Itself to Inflict Domestic Propaganda

Considering the “reporting” that has come out of the establishment media since Obama took power, this seems unnecessary…

An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned. …

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.

…but at least it has inspired some rousing propaganda art from The People’s Cube:

    I thought it was already legal. A couple of years ago, the EPA had a contest “How Regulations Help Us”

    Or this contest:

    Personally I think it is great that the government can take money from us (using force if necessary) and use it to produce advertisements telling us what a great job they are doing for us.

    I feel better already.

    So much for federal form’s in español!

    IRS workers OK “phony” documents from illegal immigrants

    “So how do you know if the documentation is real or fake?” asked 13 Investigates.

    “You don’t,” the whistleblower said.

    “I can’t read Spanish so I couldn’t even read [the documents],” explained another IRS insider.

    “Wait a second. You’re expected to process documents and you don’t even read the language the documents are [written] in?” 13 Investigates asked.

    “Correct,” they said simultaneously.

    “We get applications from Mexico, Honduras, China, Japan, Bulgaria, all over the world. How are we supposed to read all that? But I guarantee 90% of them are phony. We see the same signatures hundreds of times. We see the same docs photocopied and attached to different applications. It’s the same person, same photo, same address. I’ve seen the same birth certificate twelve times now in the past day. You see it all on an ITIN application,” the IRS insider said.

    “So what do you do with that application?” we asked.

    “If the documentation is there, process it,” admitted the insider.

    “How? It was your job to make sure that documentation was correct,” 13 Investigates said.

    “No,” the IRS insider said, quickly shaking his head. “There’s no way for us to do that. The documents would come in. That’s it. We’re done with it. We accept it … no ifs, ands or buts. You can sit there and look and you know it’s phony. [There's] nothing we can do about it. Absolutely nothing.”
