We produced this in 2003 and released it in time for the second year anniversary of 9/11.
It’s been viewed over 1 million times.
It’s also been taken down dozens of times by various hosting companies to try to obscure how many times it’s actually been viewed.
Notice that in perfectly coordinated fashion, the top US TV news networks pinned the crime of 9/11 on Osama bin Laden while the dust was still settling.
Here’s everything you need to know about TV news
Anchormen (and women) are just actors.
They may have dabbled in news reporting at one time in their lives, but they are hired for their ability to convey stories credibly…whether they know what they’re talking about or not or whether its true or not.
The ability to do this night after night in the face of obvious bullshit and official lying is a relatively rare and highly paid skill.
That’s what newsreaders get their big salaries for and they understand that to keep the paychecks coming, they’ve got to keep reading the ‘news’ – whatever is handed to them to read – and make it sound believable without question.
The real power in the newsroom is held by the person who hands the news reader the script, selects the guest “experts” and tells the reporters on the street who to talk to.
To pull off the scam you saw in this video requires a grand total of just three people (one for each of the clips.) Three “embedded” news directors in the employ of an intelligence agency.
All year long these people collect two paychecks, one from the TV network and one from the Agency.
The Brasscheck Five Point Action Program (Ver 1.0)
Real information for real change
Much of what Brasscheck reports is dark, but the purpose of our reporting is not to make you despondent. We’re simply covering elements of reality that the corporate/government news media withholds from you.
Before positive productive action can be planned and taken, accurate assessments of conditions have to be made.
Brasscheck is designed to stimulate discussion, encourage future research and inspire positive action.
If you’re seeking an answer to the question “What can I do?” here’s a five point course of action from the simplest actions to the most complex that might stimulate your thinking.
1. Study reality and dismantle propaganda
That’s what Brasscheck TV videos are designed to do. Sometimes they are complete packets of information. Sometimes they are springboards for additional research.
Realize that it’s a process that never ends – because propagandists and professional liars (PR people, “journalists,” paid-for scientists and doctors, government officials etc.) never stop manufacturing new self-serving bullshit.
2. Use what you learn to protect yourself, your family and friends and your community – and to make their lives better
Sometimes it’s immediately obvious what to do in response to information. Sometimes it’s not. Act on what you can act on.
KEY POINT: Support positive alternatives for yourself and others. Create them too.
For example, most people are all but enslaved to the products of a toxic corporate food industry. You can start weaning yourself off that today and it will have many positive effects both in your own life and beyond.
Giving the authorities “the benefit of the doubt” is a form of cooperation.
Getting swept up in a wave of corporate/government media-generated hysteria on any subject is a form of cooperation.
Doing business with unethical banks and companies is a form of cooperation.
You can help – and help a lot – by simply withdrawing your cooperation and consent.
4. Help victims
Many entirely innocent people have been and continue to be the victims of the corporate/government. You don’t have to look far to find them. If you’re so inclined, you can share your resources with victims directly or find reliable groups that do good work.
Note: Large “non-profits” like the Red Cross are not generally good organizations to give money to.
5. Work to undermine The System
Notice I didn’t say “fight.”
The System loves nothing more than for people to fight it.
They have exponentially more guns and gun thugs and it won’t be even a remotely fair fight.
So how do you undermine The System?
Review the first four action points and use your own creativity and imagination. Ideas will come to you. It’s a life’s work, not something you figure out in a minute or a day.
Please share Brasscheck and the Five Point Action Program with your friends and colleague.
If just 1% of the population thought and acted this way on a daily basis, it would be the start of a massive irresistible change.
Good luck in your self-education and all your positive endeavors. No one said life was easy (well, the TV did, but it was wrong.)
Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious.— George Orwell
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
It’s a shell game intended to keep us focused on and distracted by all of the politically expedient things that are being said—about militarized police, surveillance, and government corruption—while the government continues to frogmarch us down the road toward outright tyranny.
Americans’ private communications and data are still being sucked up by government spy agencies. The USA Freedom Act was just a placebo pill intended to make us feel better without bringing about any real change. As Bill Blunden, a cybersecurity researcher and surveillance critic, points out, “The theater we’ve just witnessed allows decision makers to boast to their constituents about reforming mass surveillance while spies understand that what’s actually transpired is hardly major change.”
Taxpayer dollars are still being squandered on roads to nowhere, endless wars that do not make us safer, and bloated government agencies that should have been shut down long ago. A good example is the Transportation Security Administration, which, despite its $7 billion annual budget, has shown itself to be bumbling and ineffective.
In other words, freedom, or what’s left of it, is being threatened from every direction. The threats are of many kinds: political, cultural, educational, media, and psychological. However, as history shows us, freedom is not, on the whole, wrested from a citizenry. It is all too often given over voluntarily and for such a cheap price: safety, security, bread, and circuses.
This is part and parcel of the propaganda churned out by the government machine. That said, what we face today—mind manipulation and systemic violence—is not new. What is different are the techniques used and the large-scale control of mass humanity, coercive police tactics and pervasive surveillance. As we have seen with the erection of the electronic concentration camp, there is virtually no escaping the invisible prison surrounding us. Once upon a time, one could run and hide or duck into a cave, but that is no longer feasible as caves are quite scarce, and those running the camp have their eyes watching everything.
Moreover, we are presented with the illusion that we act of our own volition when most of the time we are being watched, prodded, and controlled. “The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative,” Aldous Huxley stated. “The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him, the walls of his prison are invisible.”
In fact, with the merger of the Internet and the corporate state, unless you are alert and aware, it will be increasingly difficult to discern the difference between freedom and enslavement. With the methods of mind manipulation available to the corporate state, the very nature of democratic government has been changed. Again, as Aldous Huxley writes:
[T]he quaint old forms—elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of nonviolent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial . . . Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit.
To many, the situation seems hopeless. But is it?
From the day you’re born until the day you die, the choices you exercise are very limited. You don’t choose to be born or choose what sex you are or who your parents are or where you live. When you are a child, you are told what to do, and when you enter school, you sit plastered to a desk and are taught what others demand you should know. Yes, the indoctrinating process begins on day one.
Then there are the rules, the endless rules. If you say the wrong word, write the wrong story or wear the wrong clothes, you can get thrown out of school or even arrested. You live where you are told and eat what others think you should eat. As you grow older, this list expands into employment, marriage and so on. In other words, your so-called reality is socially constructed. It is predetermined for you, and if you step out of line and disagree with what the current society deems proper, you will be ostracized. If you speak your mind to the governing authorities, you might find yourself behind bars.
The point is that in order to develop a compliant citizenry, people must be forced to live in a mental matrix of words, ideas, ideologies, and teachings that are designed to make us conform. “As the Matrix in the movie was used to facilitate the exploitation of humans,” writes author Henry H. Lindner, “so the current ideological Matrix was created for, and serves to exploit us, turning us into unthinking workers and consumers—slaves of the ruling elite who themselves are trapped in the Matrix.” In fact, “few of us are able to escape the Matrix. We do not even know it exists.”
For there to be any hope of real change, you’ll have to change how you think about yourself, your fellow human beings, freedom, society, and the government. This means freeing your mind, realizing the truth, and unlearning all the myths you have been indoctrinated with since the day you were able to comprehend language.
First,we must come to grips with the reality that the present system does not foster freedom. It denies freedom and must be altered. “Our authoritarian system is based on cruelty and control—it increasingly drives natural love and feelings from our society and produces violence and greed,” Lindner recognizes. “Our society is deteriorating morally and intellectually. This system cannot be reformed.”
To start with, we must recognize that the government’s primary purpose is maintaining power and control. It’s an oligarchy composed of corporate giants wedded to government officials who benefit from the relationship. In other words, it is motivated by greed and exists to perpetuate itself. As George Orwell writes:
We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. . . .. The object of power is power.
Second,voting is practically worthless. “In principle, it is a great privilege,” Aldous Huxley recognized. “In practice, as recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty.”
We live in a secretive surveillance state that has virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. As Jordan Michael Smith, writing for the Boston Globe, concludes about the American government:
There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.
How many times have the various politicians, when running for office, lied about all they were going to do to bring hope and change to America? Once they get elected, what do they do? They do whatever the corporate powers want. Yes, the old boss is the same as the new boss. The maxim: power follows money.
Moreover, voting is a way to keep the citizenry pacified. However, many Americans intuitively recognize that something is wrong with the way the electoral process works and have withdrawn from the process. That’s why the government places so much emphasis on the reassurance ritual of voting. It provides the illusion of participation.
Third,question everything. Don’t assume anything government does is for the good of the citizenry. Again, that is not the purpose of modern government. It exists to perpetuate a regime. Remember the words of James Madison, considered the father of the U.S. Constitution: “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.” Power corrupts. And as the maxim goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Fourth, materialism is a death knell to freedom. While it may be true that Americans are better off than citizens of other nations—we have jobs, food, entertainment, shopping malls, etc.—these are the trappings meant to anesthetize and distract us.
Like the dodo, any “bird that has learned how to grub up a good living without being compelled to use its wings will soon renounce the privilege of flight and remain forever grounded,” Huxley warned. “Same thing is true of human beings. If bread is supplied regularly and capaciously three times a day, many of them will be perfectly content to live by bread alone—or at least by bread and circuses alone.” Free as a bird, some say, but only if you’re willing to free your mind and sacrifice all for a dangerous concept—freedom.
In other words, the hope is that the cry of “‘give me television and hamburgers, but don’t bother me with the responsibilities of liberty,’ may give place, under altered circumstances, to the cry of ‘give me liberty or give me death.’” This is indeed dangerous freedom.
Fifth,there is little hope for any true resistance if you are mindlessly connected to the electronic concentration camp. Remember, what you’re being electronically fed by those in power is meant to pacify, distract, and control you. You can avoid mind manipulations to a large degree by greatly limiting your reliance on electronic devices—cell phones, laptops, televisions, and so on.
Sixth,an armed revolt will not work. Although we may have returned to a 1776 situation where we need to take drastic actions to restore freedom, this is not colonial America with its muskets and people’s armies. Local police departments have enough militarized firepower to do away with even a large-scale armed revolt. Even attempting to repel a SWAT team raid on your home is futile. You’ll get blown away.
Seventh,be wise and realize that there is power in numbers. Networks, coalitions, and movements can accomplish much—especially if their objectives are focused and practical—and they are very much feared by government authorities. That’s why the government is armed to the teeth and prepared to put down even small nonviolent protests.
Eighth,act locally but think nationally. The greatest impact can be had at local governing bodies such as city councils. Join together with friends and neighbors and start a Civil Liberties Oversight Committee. Regularly attend council meetings and demand that government corruption be brought under control and that police activities be brought under the scrutiny of local governing bodies and, thus, the citizenry.
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, for example, police were involved in 39 shootings dating back to 2010. After a 2014 police shooting of an unarmed homeless man camped out in a public park, residents engaged in nonviolent acts of civil disobedience to disrupt the normal functioning of the city government and demand that the police department be brought under control. Community activists actually went so far as to storm a city council meeting and announce that they would be performing a citizens’ arrest of the police chief, charging him with “harboring fugitives from justice at the Albuquerque police department” and “crimes against humanity.”
Ninth, local towns, cities and states can nullify or say “no” to federal laws that violate the rights and freedoms of the citizenry. In fact, several states have passed laws stating that they will not comply with the National Defense Authorization Act which allows for the military to indefinitely detain (imprison) American citizens. Again, when and if you see such federal laws passed, gather your coalition of citizens and demand that your local town council nullify such laws. If enough towns and cities across the country would speak truth to power in this way, we might see some positive movement from the federal governmental machine.
Tenth,understand what freedom is all about. “Who were the first persons to get the unusual idea that being free was not only a value to be cherished but the most important thing that someone can possess?” asks Professor Orlando Patterson. “The answer in a word: slaves.”
Freedom arose from the hearts and minds of those who realized that they were slaves. It became a primary passion of those who were victims of slavery.
Some Americans are beginning to realize that they are slaves and that if they don’t act soon, they will find themselves imprisoned in the electronic concentration camp indefinitely. Mind you, there may not be any chains hanging from the dungeon walls, but it is a prison nonetheless, and we are, without a doubt, inmates serving life sentences.
Several groups of individuals worldwide are launching promising initiatives to make radical changes in our current reality–where we are listing worldwide toward authoritarian government, medical fascism, total-surveillance, absolute robotized/transhumanized tech control, “global governance,” suppression of personal sovereignty, financial collapse, eco-ravaging, and nuclear war–just take a look at the news today.
These initiatives rely on each of us, the separate, regular individual, to wake up and take action–whether it is to sign a petition, sign a declaration of non-consent, or offer a small measure of fiscal support. ECC will post these solutions on an ongoing basis. Please explore, peruse, investigate, use your own best judgment, please support what works for you. The more of us who wake up and take action, however small, the more likely we are to actually make changes in the unified field connecting us, turn back the tide of negative action aimed at us, and break through to a positive and meaningful future. Our participation is being called for.
The International Tribunal for Natural Justice (ITNJ)
But amid this climate of total dominance and control is an emerging population of knowledgeable individuals willing to take up their co-creative powers and be the change. The ITNJ is a global unified organization with the goal of taking an active role in bringing justice to a world dominated by pirates. We were asked to participate in this effort and are very encouraged by what this organization has the potential to do.
Paul Conant was kind enough to put together an introduction to the ITNJ, which can help others see the value in what this can mean for humanity.
From their Mission Statement: “Our mission is to restore the people to sovereignty through knowledge, and only then will they be armed with the virtue to take political and judicial power. The people have it in their power to disarm and defeat the enemy of Liberty both foreign and domestic if they only understood the principles of freedom and stand upon them.”
From their Preface:“We have been researching the political and judicial realms since the spring of 2008, and NLA is the fruit of that labor founded in the late Spring of 2013. We started off with the name New York Committeemen, and then changed it to National Liberty Alliance when the people of other states drafted us into this movement. We had no intentions of going national, it was our hope to be successful in NY and other people in other states might follow our lead.”
From their home page: “Now is the time to take back the rule from our oppressors! Due to extraordinary circumstances, on November 10, 2014 We the People from all fifty states unified as United States Common Law Grand jury for the purpose of saving America by returning Justice, and thereby the rule of Law, to our courts which will permeate all three branches of government.
Through the power vested in We the People by God, a Writ Quo Warranto was filed in all 94 Federal District Courts and served upon every elected state and federal servants and officers of the court, reminding them of their limited power; “In the United States, sovereignty resides in people… that Congress cannot invoke the sovereign power of the People to override their will as thus declared,” Perry v. US, 294 U.S330; and “The very meaning of sovereignty is that the decree of the sovereign makes law,” not the servant, American Banana Co. v. United Fruit Co.”For the rest of this account, which brings one up to date to what’s happening in June 2015, please visit National Liberty Alliance online.
The NLA is establishing Common Law Grand Juries to take back the rule of law, and invites everyone to participate. They have tons of Civics and basic history information online, and offer amazing amounts of knowledge resources.

From their About page: “Round-op Alpha was incorporated on April 6, 2014, as a special international non-governmental justice agency (S.I.N.G.J.A)….Society is in need of change and while countless initiatives and “movements” have yet to produce any significant results, time is passing by and change is not arriving. Given the nature and expectations of any previous initiatives in recent history it is only to be expected that the “change” that many people want is just beyond reach, if not an illusion, since the core of the problems has never been addressed, ever….It is therefore that a growing group of private individuals, government officials and (non) (for) profit organizations from around the world recognizes that in order to achieve real change real action has to be undertaken.
Namely: the arrest of those politicians, corporate executives, scientists, opinion makers, military and religious leaders and financiers who are responsible for instigating and maintaining wars; murdering of millions of innocent people by governments and corporations; upholding of national and international fraudulent monetary constructions that deprive the people of wealth and rights; willful engineering of the Earth’s climate and weather patterns in order to have the world population sign on to fraudulent sustainability policies; eco-terror and eco-warfare; enforcing of deadly vaccine and related and equally deadly health programs; high-profile pedophilia, sex and human trafficking; willful societal perversion through entertainment and news distribution; high-profile brigandage; corruption; blackmailing and extortion.
Round-op Alpha is not just an idea that has been growing for a long time. As you read this, concrete action plans are ready and new ones are being drawn while actual formations are being forged and ready to be deployed.”
From their Updates page, June 14: “Our operation and campaigns are still active, make no mistake about it…The purpose of today’s announcement is to inform the world of the fact that there’s a very real and very fitting alternative to the ongoing and increasing deception, madness, wars, destruction and fear mongering for a financial collapse.
In part this insanity is to be blamed on complicit establishment press outlets who constantly distribute toxic propaganda and false news reports but they are not the only ones to be blamed.
The increasing subversion campaigns in the alternative media are of equal importance when you want to understand why no significant results can be documented yet for a cause like ours…
The prospect of actually getting top figures arrested is real, no matter what anyone tries to make you believe. The list of crimes is endless and only one for each listed individual is more than enough to have him or her jailed for life. You know it and we know it! There’s no denying this….
(W)e are creating a new awareness campaign for Round-op Alpha, it is an interactive campaign that will allow everyone to contribute to the creation and promotion of an actionable list of 50 high-profile individuals that need to be arrested FIRST and ASAP in order to divert society away from its current course.” To read the full letter, please visit their news blog page here.
