A few years ago, Zerohedge ran an article reporting that hundreds if not thousands of federal agents secretly spend their 8-hour shifts editing the online encyclopedia known as Wikipedia. This news got very little traction in mainstream presses.
Now Wikipedia co-founder Lawrence Mark Sanger says the CIA and other intelligence agencies have been in charge of Wikipedia for 15 years. See Sanger’s interview with Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald.
Sanger also said these covert agencies have been pushing the site to show leftist, socialist, and pro-government ideological beliefs as facts.
Wikipedia now officially lists “80 percent of the major sources of news on the right to be unreliable.” The site references pro-government (and government-supported) news sources such as CNN, MSNBC and New York Times as authoritative. See here.
Greenwald points out that Google and other search engines are now intertwined with Wikipedia, and promote Wikipedia’s contents above all other contents when people type in search terms.
Today, Wikipedia’s government-controlled content literally populates the windows which open when Google and other search engines bring up lists of information regarding any topic.
For years, a small group of government “scientists” have been publishing, announcing, and predicting that all glaciers in Glacier National Park are nearing extinction. Lysander Spooner University has been the only institution that has dared to challenge these claims.
This small group of heavily-funded government scientists exists in utmost privilege, advantage and luxury. At least one book has been written about them (“The Melting World,” available in GNP bookstores). Their every word and proclamation about melting glaciers is repeated in “news” media without challenge. They are allowed to testify in Montana courtrooms without any material cross-examination by Montana government lawyers .
But the last year of “data” regarding glacier size was published in 2016. For data gathered in 2015. That’s EIGHT-YEAR-OLD data. In the past two years I myself have authored TWO articles on the government’s manipulation of data. (The government purports to show massive percentage reductions in GNP glacier size by comparing contemporary size numbers with estimates gained from MAPS drawn in the 1960s. (You can’t make this up.)
My emails with a representative of the USGS in Bozeman, Montana led to statements that the government had completed aerial photography flights for size determinations IN SEPTEMBER 2021. For those who need reminding, 2021 was an extreme drought year across Montana which set numerous records for lack of rainfall. GNP’s glaciers did indeed melt more than during other summers. I’ve been expecting that the USGS would soon release their “Glaciers Melting Faster than Ever”-type headlines at any moment.
But what happened? Why hasn’t the government published new data? Could it be that data fudging or cherrypicking has caught up to the USGS? The current NPS pamphlet “Climate Change in National Parks” states that glaciers and ice sheets “are shrinking at an accelerated rate.”
Could it be the government doesn’t want to produce data which refutes their claims?

Recently, Montana State district Judge Kathy Seeley’s verdict in Held v. Montana made national headlines. Most of the news reporting echoed the Bozeman Daily Chronicle’s assessment that “‘This changes everything’: Experts respond to Held v. Montana climate ruling” (Aug. 18, 2023) (echoing the title of a famed climate doomsday book by avowed marxist Naomi Klein). The decision struck down a State law requiring that the climate change religion should not be considered when State officials make energy decisions.
The Chronicle’s Micah Drew wrote that the Held verdict is “the first legal opinion of its kind, spelling out the environmental harms caused by greenhouse gas emissions as well as the effects of climate change on the physical and mental well-being of young people.” The Chronicle interviewed Michael Gerrard, the founder of Columbia Law School’s Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, who said the ruling was the “strongest decision on climate change ever issued by any court.” “The court resoundingly affirmed what the climate scientists are saying,” said Gerrard, “and it will become ever harder to attack basic climate science in the court, where facts matter.”
But I myself attended much of the trial proceedings in the case, and even wrote my synopsis in a Gateway Pundit article on July 3, 2023. I wrote that “the States’ defense lawyers failed to vigorously cross-examine any of the plaintiffs’ “science” experts, and did not even present any countervailing science information.” I concluded that “Trial in Held v. Montana might be compared to the Salem Witch Trials, in which “spectral evidence” was presented without challenge.” There was absolutely no scientific debate in the trial. None.
Montana’s great physicist, Dr. Ed Berry, offered the same insights:
“Montana lost because [Montana Republican Attorney General Austin] Knudsen did not defend against the plaintiffs’ climate claims. Worse, before the trial began on June 12, 2023, Assistant AG Michael Russell stipulated,
“for the purposes of trial, there is a scientific consensus that earth is warming as a direct result of human GHG emissions, primarily from the burning of fossil fuels.”
“Knudsen gave away the farm. He caved on climate and gave the Democrats control of Montana’s mining, energy, economy, and education.”
Usually lawyers stipulate to a factual proposition in order to clear the trial of discussion of that issue. But despite Attorney General Knudsen’s stipulation, the plaintiffs filled the record to overflowing with doomsday pseudoscientific claims about the effects of human-produced CO2. And Knudsen’s legal team offered no pushback. The judge, according to Berry, “properly used the evidence presented in the trial. The Supreme Court will agree with the judge.”
An astounding story is developing in the State of Georgia. Georgia’s Attorney General recently indicted former U.S. President Donald Trump and 17 others for election fraud. The specific claims are that Trump and various lawyers and officials claimed in 2020 that Georgia presidential vote tallies were rigged against Trump. Trump and his lawyers and support team challenged, spoke out, and sought and generally lobbied for Georgia election officials to investigate such election improprieties.
Now Trump and over a dozen others stand accused of felonies for their challenges. For the most part, mainstream news institutions have simply repeated and bolstered prosecution claims that Trump had nothing to complain about. Georgia’s 2020 election counts were just fine, they report.
But Project Veritas has revealed that the U.S. Department of Justice secretly warned, ordered or coerced social media giants such as Twitter to censor news that thousands of “voters” were registered to vote from a single address. See here.
Pfizer also testified that the company interprets its immunity agreement with the Australian government (similar to agreements the company has with many governments in the world) to mean the company is immune from disclosure requirements regarding side effects, experiments, and internal testing.
Pfizer spokesperson admitted company employees were given a “special batch” of Covid-19 vaccine, materially different to the vaccine distributed to the rest of the population. The shocking revelation came during a Senate hearing in Australia, when the Pfizer spokesperson revealed that the Big Pharma giant imported a special batch of COVID-19 vaccines solely for their employee vaccination program.
Australian Senator Malcolm Roberts led the interrogation of Pfizer Australia’s Country Medical Director, Dr. Krishan Thiru, and Head of Regulatory Sciences, Dr. Brian Hewitt, with his forceful inquiries eventually leading to Dr. Thiru admitting Pfizer employees did not receive the normal vaccine.
Government supremacists have been pushing people ever closer to total omnipotent control of transactions for years. In 1986 the US government required everyone to have two pieces of government ID in order to get a job. In the aftermath of 9/11 the US government passed the USA Patriot Act, outlawing third party checks and turning banks into arms of the government.
Then in 2004, Congress passed the Real ID Act, requiring all states to issue driver licenses with biological identifiers.
More recently the US government has been pushing to eliminate cash transactions
Today a person is more free the moment he walks off a typical university campus. Modern universities push a constant stream of government-supporting propaganda, socialism, and censorship of anti-government thought.
Now American confidence in higher education has sunk to a new low, according to a new Gallup poll. Just 36% of adults expressed high levels of confidence in higher ed.
And this confidence has been plummeting, as universities have increased their pro-government, socialist extremism. Jus 5 years ago in 2018, the number was 48%. And in 2015 the comparable level was 57%. Confidence is plummeting among all subgroups of the population.
Banks around the world appear to be obeying secret government orders to deny service to important critics of government. Simultaneously there has been a discernable push to require that all transactions be channeled through corporate banks. For example, in the US, banks are now increasingly refusing to cash checks or even make change for noncustomers. And customers must be government approved, with Social Security numbers.
Gone are the days when people could transfer third-party checks or even deposit money into another person’s checking or bank account. Now everything requires total control and monitoring by governments or government-servicing bank establishments.
Nigel Farage, the British man who led Britain to leave the European Union a decade ago, is now banned from opening a bank account at any bank in the United Kingdom, according to reports. PJ Media reports:
In an editorial entitled “After my banking travails, I fear Britain is lost,” Farage tells a hair-raising tale of institutionalized denial of services at all UK banking companies. “It combines the kind of systemic abuse once associated with Soviet rule but now sadly common in the United States with the sort of social credit tyranny one sees in China.”
He goes on to detail his financial ostracization as bank after bank refused to accept his business, and he gives examples of other politicians — always conservative — to whom it has also happened. Not only are these victims “unpersoned” and rendered unable to conduct business or even function in society, but they also face psychological extortion from vast, faceless institutions as their family members suffer the same fate. Basically, the banks tell the target, “Step down from politics or the kid gets it.”
But these powerful financial corporations still require a fig leaf to justify their abuse for PR purposes, and this is provided by a legislative or executive body. As was once SOP in Stalin’s Russia but is now common in the U.S., a “crime” is alleged and bounced to the media for magnification. Farage tells what he was baselessly accused of, and you’re not going to believe it:
For years, I have been falsely accused of having financial links to Russian funding. Even though this is nonsense, MPs have used parliamentary privilege to accuse various people associated with the Brexit campaign of the same thing. Last year, the Labour MP Sir Chris Bryant claimed in the Commons chamber that I received £548,573 in one calendar year “from the Russian state”. Despite my pleas to him and the Speaker to correct this assertion, there has been no retraction.
All western “mainstream” (meaning government-supported and supporting) media have been trumpeting the notion that mankind is currently experiencing the hottest days on record. But true global temp records (meaning satellite measurements) have only existed for around 40 years.
Prior to the satellite era (mid-1970s and beyond) the earth was covered very spottily by long-term thermometers. Most long-term thermometer stations were found in the United States and western Europe.
So government data manipulators have simply made up temperature data for other parts of the world.
