Project Mockingbird is a CIA-created program used to infiltrate and control the media on all sides, including what is now considered the so-called 'alternative media'.. many truth-seekers rely on just what you pointed out, Cyprium, 'alternative resources'.. taking information, from any source, one fact at a time and, as you said, weighing the evidence and 'above all taking these things to the Holy Spirit for discernment' is the only way to stay defensed against the disinformation dynamic that exists in even the 'alternative' channels.
there is so much hype behind so much of the information.. so much, often times, that what was a grain of truth ends up being a field of emotional alarmism much larger than the grain of truth. the London riots i think are a good recent example of the hype-effect. yes, there were riots, and yes the government official(s) stated that 'all options' for containment and prevention were being considered.. but the story we saw most was 'martial law imminent'.. and as we also saw, this false threat never even came into being.
the real story about the riots could have been covered.. investigations into the sources could have been made.. the mass-mind-control that probably accounted for the riots, and the individuals behind that mind-control, could have been the story.. but none of that was really the big story for alternative news.. it was instead an alarmist cry that martial law was on its way.. a cry that was nothing more than an opinion based upon basically one man's statement that 'all things were being considered'.. not exactly rock solid evidence.. but it was the story nonetheless.
that is one of the reasons i love this site. no matter what the published story is from either side of media, this site isn't going to publish opinions and call them facts. and no matter what, the facts will always be weighed against the word of YHWH.
We know there is chaos in the world and that evil increases daily. It is expected that great trying adversities will be faced even by those who are faithful believers. Many will give their lives for the sake of His name. It is a fierce and relentless spiritual war that we face and one which requires strength of resolve, whole trust in Yahushua and sharp discernment.
It is that discernment that is being sharpened now, because if a believer can not divide the truth from deception in these days, the following days will be only so much more perilous in deception.
underscore so-called alternative journalism on JADE HELM 15.. as far as the self-proclaimed underground media goes it is the be-all end-all attack therefore all people with "nothing but their Constitutional rights to lose" should panic and do something silly.. so counterproductive and shady as all get-out.
i hope believers remember our first love is Yahushua... not the 2nd amendment.. not so-called "Liberty" falsehoods.. the NRA motto 'out of my cold dead hands' should be a perished thought in the face of what's really going on..
Delusions come in as many forms as the desires of the flawed heart and continually adapt to suit every new interest or expectation that can be dreamed up. For this reason, we must never be dreamers, we must never be shaping our perception of reality by what seems nice to our base senses and wishes. If we are willing participants in such a thing, He will allow us to choose our delusions and perish with them.
Great article, as timely as when you first posted it, even more soever now.
