Any technique that efficiently manipulates public opinion is sure to be repeated, and we are able to 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 concerning genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and industrial agriculture, we determined we wanted a brand new recreation plan. Educating individuals by our publication was nice, however we realized one of the simplest ways to show Monsanto — a number one GMO advocate and patented seed proprietor on the time — was to get them to interact straight and guarantee nationwide consideration.

To that finish, Mercola.com funded the signature gathering in California that initiated Proposition 37, the appropriate 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 interact 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 manner, 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 crew to do most of their soiled work — paying scientists and teachers to voice their “unbiased opinions,” influencing scientific journals, and getting journalists and editorial boards to put in writing 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 slender defeat of Prop 37, the brand new, widespread consciousness of GMOs, pesticides and industrial agriculture finally 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 permit 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 unbiased, and sometimes find yourself getting paid for his or her contributions by way of hidden means, resembling unrestricted grants.

College of Florida professor Kevin Folta is one outstanding instance described in my 2016 article “Scientific American — Another Monsanto Bedfellow.” In that article, I additionally overview how GMO Solutions co-sponsored a panel dialogue about GMOs in March that 12 months with the media and partnerships division of Scientific American.

On the time, Jeremy Abatte, vice chairman 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 corporations for public acceptance. Within the article2 “Bayer’s Shady PR Corporations: Fleishmanhillard, Ketchum, FTI Consulting,” U.S. Proper to Know opinions the various deception scandals involving these corporations. A key discovery was proof exhibiting “there are goal methods to silence sturdy voices.”

After investigating the methods utilized by Monsanto and Bayer, we are able to now see that the identical playbook is being utilized by Huge Tech and Huge 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.Ok. by Imran Ahmed, a member of the Steering Committee on Countering Extremism Pilot Activity Drive beneath the British authorities’s Fee for Countering Extremism and the chief govt of the Centre for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH).

In keeping with 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. Moderately, 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 Heart, which was additionally on the CCDH listing 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 throughout 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 Drive 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 throughout the expertise, pharmaceutical and banking industries.

These firms, in flip, have varied partnerships with the U.S. authorities and world nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Publicis itself can also be a companion 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 note, Publicis’ fingerprints might be discovered all through the web of censorship and misdirection that’s now being solid throughout the digital panorama.

The Publicis Groupe has manipulated what individuals take into consideration industrial merchandise for practically 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 not too long ago, they’ve branched into Huge Knowledge acquisitions and synthetic intelligence platforms.

To know the ability PR firms resembling Publicis have at the moment, you might want to perceive the position of the free press. Whereas pro-industry promoting labored nicely for many years, there was nonetheless the irksome downside 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 shops 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 truly 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 fact 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 “massive weapons” of media — such because the Paley Heart for Media — Publicis and its {industry} shoppers have been capable of affect and management the press to limit, certainly just about remove, your skill to get the reality on many vital points.

Publicis, Huge Pharma and NewsGuard

To begin 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 reports and knowledge.

In actuality, nonetheless, NewsGuard finally ends up appearing as a gate keeper with a mission to barricade unpopular fact 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 acquired a big chunk of its startup capital from Publicis. NewsGuard additionally has ties to The Paley Heart for Media, talked about earlier. For clarification, The Paley Heart consists of each main media on this planet, together with Microsoft, AOL, CBS, Fox and Tribune Media. One among its actions is to sponsor an annual world discussion board for {industry} leaders.7

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

Leo Hindery,9,10 a former enterprise companion of the co-CEOs of NewsGuard, Steven Brill and Gordon Crovitz, can also be a former trustee and director of The Paley Heart. Taken collectively, NewsGuard has pretty influential connections to The Paley Heart apart from 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 would possibly affect NewsGuard’s scores of drug {industry} rivals, resembling different well being websites.

Publicis, Huge Pharma, NewsGuard and Huge Tech

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

NewsGuard can also be partnered with Microsoft, initially by Microsoft’s Defending Democracy Program.13 By way of an expanded partnership introduced in 2020, Microsoft Edge customers gained entry to NewsGuard without spending a dime, and Microsoft Bing gained entry to NewsGuard’s knowledge.14

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

Increasing the net additional onto authorities and NGO territory, we discover that NewsGuard can also 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 also be partnered with:16

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

To summarize, the net round Publicis now consists of 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 overview 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 might be so successfully erased.

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

However we’re not finished but. NewsGuard’s health-related service known as HealthGuard17 can also be partnered with WebMD, Medscape and the CCDH — the progressive cancel-culture chief18 with in depth ties to authorities and world assume tanks that not too long ago labeled individuals questioning the COVID-19 vaccine as nationwide safety threats.

In 2017, WebMD was acquired by Internet Brands, an organization beneath 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 nicely.

Collectively, HealthGuard, CCDH, WebMD and Medscape have launched a public service marketing campaign known as VaxFacts. The objective of the marketing campaign is to “present details and instruments to assist customers make knowledgeable selections 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 purpose of countering “vaccine misinformation,” and NewsGuard maintains a “Coronavirus Misinformation Monitoring Heart” that features a “High COVID-19 Vaccine Myths Tracker.”20

WebMD dominates well being searches finished by Google and shares consumer data with Google’s promoting arm and different third-party corporations — a apply 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 positioning, thus offering you with customized drug advertisements, and Fb is aware of what you’ve looked for in WebMD’s symptom checker, in addition to any medical diagnoses you acquired. 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 unbiased 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 identified within the media world as advertorials.

Ten years in the past, WebMD was additionally caught publishing a fake online depression screening test. Really, it was an promoting trick for the antidepressant Cymbalta, and there was no manner 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, Huge Tech firms like Google, Microsoft and Bing, the U.S. State Division and DoD, world technocratic establishments just like the WHO, nationwide and world 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 shoppers of which embrace main drug firms, Huge 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 helpful useful resource in relation to the usage of AI.

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

Whereas it’s straightforward to dismiss Publicis as simply one other advert company, I consider it will be silly to underestimate its energy to arrange the form of coordination required to close down vaccine considerations, anti-lockdown proponents and folks making an attempt to teach their fellow man concerning the risks of the Nice Reset, which is being introduced forth as a “essential” post-COVID step.

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

What Can You Do?

All the things we all know is about to alter, and those that 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 permit this agenda to be pushed ahead. A part of that publicity is trying on the position of massive 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 actual fact concerning the points, and that triggered Monsanto’s collapse.

This could imply that fairly than web pages 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 all around the world making it just about unattainable to censor or shut down.

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

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