If You Have Not Been Taught to Think for
Yourself, Then Disinformation is Scary

CTH has encountered criticism for our position on information. Perhaps it is important to step back and explain exactly why we should not be playing by rules established to control us while engaged in the battle of ideas. First, my position: …”There is no such thing as “disinformation” or “misinformation”. There is only information you accept and information you do not accept. You were not born with a requirement to believe everything you are told; rather, you were born with a brain that allows you to process the information you receive and make independent decisions.”… There are only two elements within the public discussion of information, truth

"If You Have Not Been Taught to Think for Yourself ..." - you have been reprogrammed by the educational institutions and the federal government, which makes you nothing but a scarecrow in the corn field

Thinking for yourself is a dangerous thing in this age of universal deceit. I learned this early, and it has gotten worse over the years. At 82, however, I no longer give a rat's rectum.

Thinking for myself brings me to agree with #5. I have my piano and the years left to me to improve my skills until the poor old body fails me. The kiddos and grand kiddos can reap what they sow. Put flowers on my grave if there are flowers.

Nobody tells me what to think. That little personality flaw has caused me untold trouble throughout my life. One of my biggest complaints is that there are no facts anymore. If a real fact doesn't fit someones opinion, they fabricate a new fact to support it. Then as time goes on, the fabrications overwhelm the truth and the truth dies. I am instantly skeptical of anyone who uses the word "truth" nowadays. Usually it is followed by an opinion.

No Sundance is not spot on, not entirely. What we used to call it back in the WWII days was propaganda. Now the new name for propaganda is disinformation. Propaganda is too easily identified as being false, so the liberals in charge need a more nebulous term that can change meaning anytime it needs to. It is all still the government line they expect the nation to believe, but it is more than just 'information'. Always depends on who is doing the defining.

I know a family that has been completely and totally brainwashed with the Covid virus and vaccine propaganda. I mean they are so bad it’s really shocking. They have all been jabbed and had multiple boosters. They keep catching Covid over and over. They go to the drug store and buy test kits by the dozen. Just yesterday the mom went to a Rite Aid and got 8 kits in one trip. If they even think they were exposed to someone who possibly had Covid they test daily even though they have no symptoms. They buy masks and hand sanitizer by the case. I have never seen people so afraid in my life. My bet they will all be dead within a couple years from the vaccine. Watch the movie: Died Suddenly. They will all be doing the vaccine spin and drop dead to the floor

Call “misinformation” for what it is—a lie! Disinformation is propaganda. Use the 24 hour rule, or better yet, wait 48 hours after you hear of something. The real story will come out later.

Democrats do not have the ability to think for themselves. Fact is, again for the tenth time, they are delusional illiterates who follow instructions. That's it. They wake up everyday to a cue card instructing them on what to say and do. Notice the media and TV. All use the same exact phrase, all use the exact same talking points for that day's narrative. Nothing more than programmed puppets for their regime. Get it yet. Wake up.

FTA: "If you define the grey work as a problem you cannot solve on your own, you open the door for others to solve that problem for you. You begin to abdicate the work, and that’s when trouble can enter." Thinking is hard work. People don't like hard work. They "sub-contract" to their "influencers", from Kardashians to FPDT, to co-workers at lunch. It's not only easier that way, but in your own circle it keeps you "popular", part of the group. Taking a contrary view, or offering conflicting information is the quickest way to expulsion. People want to belong. Basic group dynamics explains a lot about our political behavior.

No matter how you define “marriage,” there is zero respect for it in the so-called Respect for Marriage Act. You may believe it serves to federally codify the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision that rejected marriage as a male-female union. Maybe it would do so temporarily. But that’s not the endgame. If you’re paying attention, you can see that the Senate’s recent 62-37 vote for cloture on HR 8404 puts us one step closer to abolishing state recognition of marriage entirely. That’s where this train is headed. This will happen the same way such things always happen — through a demonization campaign that frames skeptics as bigots who are guilty of discrimination.

There seems to be no limit on what tissues and organs can be damaged by COVID-19 vaccination. Because lipid nanoparticles laced with genetic code for the damaging Spike protein are distributed throughout the body, bad luck may play a role with disproportionate delivery to a specific area, for example the eyes. The eyes receive their precious blood supply from the optic artery with no backup or redundancy. Hence, if lipid nanoparticles settle along the artery or into the central nerve taking visual signals to the brain, then inflammation fighting the foreign Spike protein will start a process of tissue damage leading to loss of vision. Indeed, this injury pattern has been

They also claim that the FDA broke the law when the agency issued statements prohibiting the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

The call comes after statistics showed less than half of the population of England and Wales described themselves as Christian in the 2021 census, meaning Christianity is now a minority religion, as Breitbart News reported. Both atheism and Islam are making major gains as more people reportedly feel left out as a “heavy emphasis on celebrating the birth of Jesus,” can exclude others, according to Watch This Sp_ce, a self-described diversity and inclusion consultancy.

Levin used his show on Tuesday to talk about how the Republican Party’s slim majority in the House of Representatives may cause a struggle for McCarthy to get the votes he needs to succeed Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Hard-right members of the Congressional GOP have publicly opposed McCarthy’s bid for the speakership, so the House minority leader is currently trying to bring these factions in line and secure the 218 votes he needs.

Jeffries won the post in an uncontested election after Pelosi and the two other incumbent members of the Democratic leadership, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, opted to step down. Jeffries, a 52-year-old New Yorker, will be the first African American to serve as House Democratic leader. "Leadership is incredibly important," said Jeffries.
