The Integrity Initiative & Journolism... Project Mockingbird On Steroids

in #palnet4 years ago 

Most everyone by now is familiar with Project Mockingbird, the CIA's eminently successful plan to infiltrate and control the American media. Now there's another more insidious attempt to control not only the mainstream media- television, newspapers, magazines, etc.- but social media as well... one that I wrote about a while ago called the Integrity Initiative. The name, as is most often the case, is a polar opposite of the intent of the initiative. This is an operation being carried out by British Military Intelligence, MI-5 and MI-6. To understand this to its fullest it's also important to understand that when you talk about intelligence services in the US or UK you are essentially talking about different tentacles on the same octopus. When the OSS, which evolved into the CIA, was established during WWII it was as an American adjunct of British Intelligence Services. They've worked in concert ever since.

Currently the Five Eyes (FVEY) is an intelligence sharing apparatus between The US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand allowing all data gathered by one or more agencies within any one of the signatory nations to be shared with all... the same is undoubtedly true of the Integrity Initiative (II), one of those James Bond, spy vs spy, typical of British intel operations that nobody admits exists. Working in concert with academia and "journalists" (I use the term in it's loosest possible context), intelligence agencies in the FVEY countries are now attempting to control the entire narrative including on social media- hence the snowballing of censorship on social media platforms... and like the social engineering projects of Tavistock Institute it all comes out of the UK.

 The Integrity Initiative was founded by a former member of British military intelligence and funded by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, which also oversees both the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), the British equivalent to the National Security Agency, and the Secret Intelligence Services (SIS), commonly known as MI6, the British counterpart of the Central Intelligence Agency. 

The American version is called "Journolist," a "...liberal bias in the media, but deliberate efforts to undermine the traditional nonpartisan ideal of journalism took a giant leap forward with the 2007 founding of “Journolist.” Whatever the names it's just the same agenda as Project Mockingbird only this time on steroids. This time they're not satisfied to control the MSM but now they want the entire flow of information in the control of military intelligence.

 It was originally intended to be a gathering place for several hundred liberal journalists, academics and political activists to connect young writers to top sources, but Journolist quickly degenerated into the collusion and coordination for hackery and smears, as described by the Daily Caller: 

 “In a key episode, Journolist members openly plotted to bury attention on then-candidate Barack Obama’s controversial pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. The Washington Independent’s Spencer Ackerman, for instance, suggested an effective tactic to distract from the issue would be to pick one of Obama’s critics, ‘Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.’” 

This is their modus operandi. If an actual journalist discloses something that the journalistic overlords don't approve of they're immediately denounced in print or on TV and then the allies in academia send the useful idiots such as ANTI-fa out to demonstrate and destroy property. The MSM television stations covering the demonstrations always paint the "activists" in a positive light to elicit sympathy and further demonize the purveyors of the truth. It seems redundant but these demonstrations are anything but organic, rather they're all a well orchestrated attempt to control the narrative.

 At a more secret and sinister level, individuals, acting alone or in coordinated groups, promote the narrative of the establishment elite, often with the encouragement or under the guidance of intelligence agencies or their commercial surrogates. For example, the Washington Post’s David Ignatius, long-considered a mouthpiece for U.S. and British intelligence agencies, has recently been identified as a media conduit for now-outed CIA and FBI informant Stefan Halper, providing more evidence that the intelligence community has co-opted the press to push anti-Trump conspiracy theories. 

Just as Tavistock Institute controls a network of American think tanks and academic institutions, British Intelligence, run to enhance the power of the Rothschilds and the Crown, controls American Intelligence and has since its inception... London is the seat, the locus of control, of what we call the Deep State. The American arm, in addition to being managed out of Langley is also controlled out of the Pentagon.

 It is important to note that the October 24, 2019 court filing by the defense attorneys for General Michael Flynn alleges that James H. Baker, Director of the Office of Net Assessment at the Pentagon, leaked to the press copies of the transcripts from Flynn’s December 2016 telephone calls to then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Baker had regularly scheduled lunches with The Washington Post’s David Ignatius, who published an article about the calls in January 2017.  The targeted, coordinated and swarming feeding-freezing journalism for political ends appears to be, not just the product of individuals, but a collaborative effort between media outlets and the Deep State, which is transnational and may have been and may still be an intimate element in the perpetration of the anti-Trump narrative. 

The Russia- Russia- Russia narrative goes way back before Trump, or even the Cold War for that matter. Tsar Alexander II prevented the Rothschild-backed South from having won the Civil War. Alexander II is the man who saved the Union, not Lincoln and the Rothschilds vowed to make the Russian royal family pay... it took until 1918. The South, desperate for freedom, unknowingly made a deal with the devil. But that's ancient history that merely provides a backdrop for the Russia collusion hoax. The Integrity Initiative became uncovered much more recently...

 On November 5, international hacking syndicate Anonymous published a series of internal files it'd appropriated from Integrity Initiative/em>, an Institute for Statecraft subsidiary. The material was explosive, revealing the endeavour — which claims to defend democratic institutions from Russian "destabilisation campaigns" — to be an international information warfare effort run by British military intelligence specialists, which has disrupted the domestic politics of several countries. 

This document and the one following outline the strategy while the second shows the involvement of GCHQ in the plot:

This is all part of an elaborate plot to control the narrative by painting anyone that disagrees as "fake news" and a threat to democracy, an unusual ploy from the UK who has never had anything even resembling a democracy. One may reasonably ask why is the UK so interested in preserving democracy in America? Could it be that through the Federal Reserve, a Rothschild owned central bank, the Brits have been pulling the strings from behind the curtains all along... at least since the Wilson administration when the Rothschild/Schiff alliance guaranteed they'd get America into WWI in exchange for Israel. The Rothschild diaspora has been behind British Intelligence since the beginning. It was the Rothschild intelligence network that allowed them to get the news of Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo days before anyone else- including the Crown. This network isn't only in operation in the UK and America- it's a vast consortium that encompasses much of the globe... nor is it limited to government and the press.

 As part of this enterprise, the organisation has amassed 'clusters' the world over — collectives of politicians, businesspeople, military officials, academics and journalists — who "understand the threat posed to Western nations [by] disinformation" and can be mobilised to influence policy, among other things. The files suggest these structures are operational in France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Serbia, Spain and the UK, with plans to extend the scheme to every corner of the globe. All countries with Rothschild central banks. This graphic outlines the strategy for Spain:

The center of the Integrity Initiative is the Institute For Statecraft:  Visitors are told the Institute "promotes peace and security through the skilful use of state power", "seeks to grow the capacity for strategic thinking and developing a national competitive advantage", "combines its experience and capabilities to enable its people to devise and implement solutions to challenges which [it] has been commissioned to address", and "is distinguished from 'Think Tanks' in that its research is primarily focused on enabling it to deliver effective projects and programs". It seems to operate much along the same lines as the Tavistock Institute that claims to be a "charitable institution," when in reality it is anything but. What I find puzzling is found in this statement:  "combines its experience and capabilities to enable its people to devise and implement solutions to challenges which [it] has been commissioned to address"  Commissioned by whom and to do what and by what authority?

The UK/US cluster contains some names familiar to those following the impeachment proceedings: Sir Andrew Wood, former British ambassador to Russia, was identified in a court case as an Associate in Orbis Business Intelligence Limited, the British company which includes Christopher Steele, the author of the now debunked Trump dossier. Wood, who first became aware of the contents of the Trump dossier during a meeting with Steele in August 2016,  informed Senator John McCain in November after the Presidential election. Sir Andrew also appears as a member of the “Russian Workgroup” headed by Robert Otto, who reported to Victoria Nuland at the U.S. State Department. The purpose of this group remains obscure, but it contained members from the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, two from the British Secret Intelligence service MI6 and Charles Kupchan, presumed boss of the alleged White House “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella. 

It isn't as much the Democrats behind the impeachment frenzy as their allies and dare I say bosses across the pond... remember that Little Adam Schiff is a member of the Schiff family- the one that's part of the Rothschild diaspora as well as the Schiff's behind funding the Russian Revolution... how disappointed they must have been when their Socialist empire came crashing down. Russia is also one of the few nations that doesn't have a Rothschild central bank. Attacking them militarily like they did Libya, Iraq and Syria would be ill advised, so another strategy must be employed- a strategy such as rekindling the Cold War.

 Listed among the U.S. – Canadian “cluster” is Evelyn N. Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia/Ukraine/Eurasia, who already in October of 2016 said:

“And actually, if Donald Trump were elected I believe he would be impeached pretty quickly or somebody else would have to take over government. And I am not even joking.”

 Farkas left government in 2015, after which she joined Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for President as an advisor. In the summer of 2016, as a Clinton operative, she claimed to be “getting winks and hints from inside,” presumably intelligence from inside the Obama Administration about investigations of Trump-Russia collusion and General Michael Flynn, either through retention of her top secret security clearance or through leaks. 

Much of this is why the MSM is still pushing the Russia collusion hoax... this is bigger than the election of Donald Trump, this is about revenge- revenge and control. Much of the II attack on Russia is coming through Greece, Serbia and Montenegro using Radio Free Europe as a vehicle to spread their propaganda. This is an all-out attack coming from every possible direction. The Trump/Russia collusion narrative is only one facet of a much larger project- to make the world safe for democracy- sound familiar?

 Kremlin critics in numerous countries in the region were courted — sometimes over food and/or drinks — and often offered funding. Bullet-points list the target's spheres of interest and expertise, and how they can be used to undermine the Russian government and its national and international interests. On more than one occasion Simon offers a "personal observation" on the individual(s) in question, for example noting 'Sissy and Elias' "looked scared…certain topics caused voices to drop, and eyes watched the people who walked passed [sic] table" — a sentence that wouldn't look out of place in an MI6 human intelligence report. 

This is a pretty complex operation for an organization that doesn't officially exist. It appears that the Institute for Statecraft, the parent of the Integrity Initiative is being funded by the British Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO), commonly called the Foreign Office along with several other organizations such as NATO, Facebook and other intel agencies.

 This “network of networks”, as one document refers to them, centers around an ironically named outfit called the Integrity Initiative. And it is all overseen by a previously unknown England-based think tank registered in Scotland, the Institute for Statecraft, which has operated under a veil of secrecy. The whole operation appears to be run by, and in conjunction with, members of British military intelligence.  

 According to David Miller, professor of political sociology in the school of policy studies at the University of Bristol and the director of the Organization for Propaganda Studies, the Integrity Initiative “appears to be a military directed push.”“The most senior government people are professional propagandists and spooks,” Miller explained. “The ‘charity’ lead on this [Chris Donnelly] was also appointed as a colonel in military intelligence at the beginning of the project — a truly amazing fact that suggests this is a military intelligence cut out.” 

Like many NGO's in America, the funding and agenda come from intelligence agencies such as DARPA and the National Institute of Science. This one, like Facebook who began life as Lifelog, an intel data gathering tool, focuses on both mainstream and social media... all with one goal in mind- controlling the flow of information.

 The entire extremely shady enterprise, as Miller explained, is an elaborate front for the British military-intelligence apparatus. Its covert coordination with friendly politicians and mainstream journalists recalls the Cold War-era intrigue known as Operation Mockingbird. That scandal involved the unmasking of “more than 400 American journalists who…in the past twenty-five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency,” as Carl Bernstein revealed in a 1977 Rolling Stone report.  

LIke I said earlier, however, this is Project Mockingbird on steroids.  The exposing of the Integrity Initiative has just scratched the surface of what appears to be a much more sophisticated, insidious, and extremely online version of Operation Mockingbird. With new internal documents appearing each week through a hacker’s organization called Anonymous Europe, the revelations are yielding one of the most potentially explosive national security scandals in recent times. 

If Anonymous Europe has this information, you can bet that the American intel agencies have it too and likely the president is also aware of it as well. He's already at the forefront of the fight against internet censorship. A look at who's funding the II is an unusual consortium:


  1. HQ NATO Public Diplomacy, £12,000 for each inaugural workshop = £168,000
  2. Partner institutions £5,000 for each inaugural workshop = £70,000
  3. NATO HQ for educational video films – free provision of camera team
  4. Lithuanian MOD to provide free all costs for their stratcom team for a monthly trip to support a new hub/cluster creation and to educate cluster leaders and key people in Vilnius in infowar techniques = £20,000
  5. US State Dept, for research and dissemination activities (excluding any activity in USA) = £250,000
  6. Smith Richardson Foundation, £45,000 for cluster activities in Europe and USA
  7. Facebook, £100,000 for research and education activities
  8. German business community, £25,000 for research and dissemination in EU countries

The Smith Richardson Foundation is one of the main funders of the Center For American Progress, the neo-con behind much of the Bush administrations agenda. The US State Dept. (but not in the US)- now that's believable given the corruption of the Clinton State Dept., America's shadow government, and once again Facebook.

This is coupled of course with taxpayer dollars from both the US and UK. So much for "freedom of the press." The US State Dept. is paying for a disinformation campaign designed to control not only the MSM, but the internet and the entire flow of information in the US... and Facebook is doing their part to help. This being the case we can be pretty much assured that the rest of Silicon Valley is in on it too- if not financially, in terms of technology. Google, Twitter, YouTube and other social media sites are censoring voices that dissent or disagree with the official narrative. It doesn't matter if they're left or right (although admittedly those targeted are primarily conservative), if you disagree with the narrative prepared by military intelligence you will be silenced. George Orwell couldn't have written it any better. 



The tentacles are everywhere, aren't they? The group that Marky works with to bring about closer alliances between our Senators and U.N. bureauRATS didn't even come up in this article, and yet that is one of the scariest new tentacles (of the many others above) I'd never heard of until revisiting your blog.

Amazing expose...that, sadly, only a dozen Steemians will probably ever read do to our unique styles of censorship here.

Imagine that. The polar opposite. There is something to be said for grass roots journalism. If that is destroyed, what do you have but propaganda. Thanks @richq11

Grass roots journalism is the only place where the truth is exposed... and that's a threat! When the IG report comes out and if it contains something really damaging don't be surprised if the internet goes down.

excellent article! @richq11 bellingcat & their involvement with the Integrity Initiative
