The Psychology Behind “Fake News” In America


Confirmation bias is the same in any tyrannical form of government.

When I created The Common Sense Show, in response to the Central American’s Free Trade Agreement’s intent to seize my property without compensation, along with 300 of my neighbors, I chose the name, The Common Sense Show, intentionally, to wage war against these thieving globalists. In choosing this name, I was honoring the values expressed by Thomas Paine as he wrote the most important non-governmental document in all of American History and it was entitled, Common Sense.

Paine’s Document Changed the Course of American History

In an effort to promote rebellion in the face of an oppressive British government, Paine offered an account of life in the colonies in which he posed some “Common Sense” questions such as “What sense does it make for an Island to rule over a continent?…’Tis time to part…” In pondering the implications of Paine’s work, I felt his ideas had great utility for Americans in our present time. For example, “What sense does it make for a band of sociopathic serial criminals to rule over nation of people who expect the rule of law to reign supreme?”

Further, I became aware of how “fake news sites” were propagandizing our citizens, and having an extensive background in psychology, I came to realize the psyops being employed to enslave the minds of my fellow citizens. Hence, I chose the name and banner phrase as follows:


Psychological Tools of Enslavement

Being a former therapist and instructor in the realm of sociology, psychology, research methods and statistics, I became keenly aware of how frighteningly effective the brainwashing and psyops techniques had become. These techniques are insidious, yet amazingly covert. One, has to be fully educated in these psychological techniques to recognize the subtleties related to the implementation of these practices against the American public.

I have tried to educate the American public as to how they are being conditioned and even brainwashed to accept the New World Order and one world governance which is devoid of any Christian principles. It would be nice if I had more assistance from my colleagues in the behavioral sciences. However, I am a rare breed. I have a background in the social sciences, but I am an uncompromising conservative, Bible-believing Christian. The vast majority of my social sciences colleagues are liberal,  atheist or agnostic, and sometimes fanatically liberal and decidedly anti-Christian. It is because of this that I am asking for help from my fellow patriots. Please make the following information go viral. People deserve the opportunity to see how their freedom and quality of life are being diminished because of how the people unknowingly and unquestionably buy into a paradigm designed to enslave them. All enslavement begins in the mind and knowing how we are enslaved, coupled with a faith-based belief system, can free one’s mind to become what God meant for us to become.

Here is a very brief summary of these psychological techniques designed to enslave the human mind and spirit:

  1. Group Think– This is a strategy where a “fake” bandwagon effect is promoted. The strategy works by getting the consumer of mainstream media news to believe that a specific opinion is shared by the MAJORITY of the population and  that any belief to the contrary, is lunacy. The best example of this strategy in recent times consists of the “fake” news polls which was promoted by the “fake” mainstream media. These “fake polls” sent the “fake” message that Donald Trump had virtually no chance of winning. Every one of these “fake” polls were proven to be false.
  2. Confirmation Bias– This concept is analogous to the old Nazi practice that if a lie is repeated often enough, the lie will come to be accepted as the truth. This is the reason that in a 60 minute television program, you may see the same advertisement six times. This psychological technique was in evidence in the classic Solomon Asch’s lines experiment where it was proven that people could be coerced into giving an obviously incorrect answer because of subtle peer pressure. This pressure is effective, according to the social science research, about 60% of the time. Also, the Milgram experiment which followed the Asch experiment, demonstrated that two-thirds of the people would murder a stranger, for no reason based on an authority figure’s suggestion while only using minimal social and non-coercive, pressure. This is what we see from the mainstream “fake news” media everyday. We are inundated with the message that Donald Trump is xenophobic, racist, sexist, etc. The Independent media, and Donald Trump himself, along with some divine intervention, inoculated enough Americans from this effect in order that Trump won the election. Now, these same techniques, are being employed to convince the extreme left to burn down America before Trump can turn America into minority extermination factory reminiscent of Nazi Germany.
  3. Learned Helplessness-This is the phenomenon whereby Martin Seligman conducted experiments on dogs in which he clearly demonstrated that canines, and of course humans, could be conditioned to believe that their decision making and personal power can have no impact on their present circumstances. The strategy seeks to turn the nation into a collection of “Stepford Wives” in which blind obedience is conditioned and the loss of internal decision making (i.e. internal locus of control) is eliminated. The incessant message from the “fake” mainstream media was that Donald Trump had no chance to get elected, so why bother even trying to change the inevitable?
  4. Cognitive Dissonance– In the face of contradictory facts in which one’s world view (i.e. paradigm), is challenged, the person’s ultimate psychological safety weapon, denial, takes over. The person stubbornly holds to old belief system in the face of uncompromising and substantiated facts to the contrary. During the recent election campaign, I would ask people the following question: “How could you raise your children to respect authority, the law, obey and respect their teachers, love Jesus and then turn around and support a sociopathic (e.g. Benghazi, Vince Foster murderer, selling uranium to the Russians, and the email scandals) serial criminal? I would show them the documented proof and I stood in amazement when I watched highly intelligent people be reduced to child-like reasoning to explain their very contradictory choice to support Hillary Clinton as they would utter one of Hillary’s slogans “We are stronger together” and Donald Trump hates all women and minorities”. When it came to the Clinton supporters, many of them would not look at her obvious corruption in the eye, because to do so, would have challenged their world view. So, cognitive dissonance ruled the day and half of this country resembled a bunch of intellectual zombies.

Interestingly, the very best antidote to avoid falling victim to these psychological ploys is to simply be aware of them.

Will the Real “Fake News” Media Please Stand Up?

In regard to the aforementioned psychological tools of enslavement, there are some very obvious and apparent culprits when it comes to deceiving the public with “fake news” and promoting dependence on a corrupt political system. Here are some of the purveyors of “fake news”.























All of the above engage in psychological brainwashing of the public, extreme censorship AND THE PROMOTION OF FALSE BELIEFS DESIGNED TO ENSLAVE THE FOLLOWERS OF THESE  ORGANIZATIONS. Under our system of law, Donald Trump does not have the power to change this. The reform of the corrupt mainstream media and their “fake news” can only be changed from the bottom up.

The good people of America need to fully engage in a total boycott of these organizations along with their sponsors.

    Dave, I did away with television about 15 years ago. Don’t miss it. Really don’t have time to miss it. Anyone who thinks they would be bored without TV are not using their brains for even the 10% that is talked about. I don’t have time to be bored!
    Anyway, I avoid most of the mind control that is being pushed, and the few times I see a television at someones house I find it difficult to not yell at the stupidity I see being pushed!
    The best thing people can do, for themselves and for their children, is to disconnect the TV! (IMO)

    I only watch the fake news channels on occasion just to see how flagrant the lies are they tell. It’s always good for a laugh, until I realize there are millions of people who still believe them.

    This whole “fake news” meme by the MSM is pure censorship and a cover to hide the real faking of news. Furthermore, a large percentage of what they call “fake” is opinion — content no different than most of their own except that it tends to be the opinion of the side they oppose.

    Fake news is basically all the Jooish owned and controlled news outlets. That’s a good rule of thumb.

  6. drake November 19, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    Remember the pious, sanctimonious, charges of racist bigotry against Trump for DARING to point out that Gangbangers, Drug Dealers, and assorted other Criminals are pouring over our borders? ….. Not a PEEP out of MSM when the NFL declares all of Mexico is a PIT.

    ABCNBCCNNCBS are America’s ENEMIES. THEY are the BIGOTS & HATERS spreading dissension. All election night They & the PAID Talking Heads of the MSM have pounded in wedges and intonations of RACIAL DIVISION. On the Day after the election NPR is calling Trump’s victory “WHITElash” and calling those who voted for Trump RACISTS. Why are MY taxes supporting such a BIASED organization that attacks US?
    If you HAVE a MSM subscription, CANCEL your subscription.

    Fake news, fake money, fake education, fake history, fake wealth. In a debt based system it is set up to appear real when it is really fake. Fake stock market, fake War on terror, fake weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, fake politicians, fake reality. Fake, phony, and false, you have all been faked out by a bunch of fakers. Fake 911 story, fake unemployment numbers, and on and on and on.

    Fake news network = Nazi Lyingstream Media = Dumbing down of America = Zombification of a civilization

    Solution : Trump must call Congress to enact a law to penalize media outlets that propagate false information to the public in a purposeful manner that intents to deceive the general listener.
