A simple test to find out whether
you’re under the spell of media hypnosis…
from Mike Adams
Excerpt from Natural News 2/16/2013
Note: Within the next few days, I’m going to expand this excerpt to prepend, as a minimum, two test questions regarding the recent Boston Marathon incident and, say, the government’s claims as to the acceptability of GMO foods… or forced vaccinations or stratospheric atmospheric engineering (chemtrails) or torture or drone kills of civilians or summary presidential executions or indefinite detentions without trial or federal gun confiscations or etc. etc. [obviously we can make a long list of actions the government and its media arm have been successful in snowing mentally susceptible people to the effect that such actions are quite fine and humane.]–Ed.
(NaturalNews) Here’s a valuable self-test to find out whether you’ve been hypnotized (and controlled) by the mainstream media and its engineered false reality. After you take this test, watch the stage hypnosis videos I’ve selected for you, below, and you’ll be astonished to learn just how hypnotized most people really are. Original Mike Adams article here.
#1) Were the fires that burned up Christopher Dorner set by the LAPD?
Minutes before fires broke out in the cabin where homicide suspect Chris Dorner was holed up, the LAPD ordered all media helicopters and video journalists to clear the area. The following conversation was then heard on police radios: [According to a reader, LAPD wasn’t in charge at the cabin site; the voices recorded planning the fire are from the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department. — ed.] :
“We’re gonna go forward with the plan with the burner.”
“Like we talked about.”
“Burners deployed, and we have a fire.”
Repeated by dispatcher: “Burners deployed, and we have a fire.”
“We have fire in the front. He might come out the back.”
“Looks like it’s starting to collapse.”
“We’re gonna start bringing fire in, about 200 yards out.”
“Break 61 Lincon, 61 Charlie, you ready for fire?”
All this starts around the 1:00 mark in this video [in original column]:
Fire then breaks out, burning down the cabin along with Christopher Dorner, the homicide suspect.
The San Bernadino sheriff’s department, which had authority on the scene, then declared that nobody set the fires and they have no idea how the fires happened. Those fires were spontaneous fires, they claim, which erupted on their own.
So here’s the hypnosis test question: Do you believe the claim that law enforcement did not set the fires?
If so, you are hypnotized by the media into a state of extreme gullibility. Please keep score and continue…
Test Question #2: Why is the U.S. government buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammo?
When Natural News and InfoWars first reported that the U.S. government was buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition to use domestically — that’s enough to wage at least a 7-year full-scale war with the American people — we were first called “conspiracy theorists” and it was widely claimed that our allegations were false.
But now, since the media has been unable to suppress the truth about these huge ammo purchases by the U.S. government, the script it being flipped: Now we’re told these purchases are all about saving taxpayers money by “buying in bulk.”
Yep, the government’s purchase of 1.6 billion rounds of ammo is all about saving YOU money! Well gee, how nice of them! But don’t forget that this is enough ammunition to shoot every person in America five times. If this is “bulk purchasing,” it’s the equivalent of you and I driving to Costco and buying 50,000 pounds of peanut butter and having it loaded onto railroad cars with the claim that we’re “saving money on peanut butter!”
It’s no longer a conspiracy theory that the government is buying all these bullets; it’s now explained by the media as a “benefit” to the taxpayers.
Question: Do you believe these ammo purchases are being done solely to SAVE taxpayers money?
If so, you’ve been hypnotized yet again by the mainstream media into a state of total stupidity. By this logic, they could buy human incineration ovens in bulk and claim they’re saving taxpayers money by purchasing in bulk.
What’s clear is that the U.S. government is engaged in an arms race, stockpiling and hoarding masses of ammunition to prepare for war with the American people.
Test Question #3: Can guns be defensive weapons?
An anti-gun California police boss named Ken James just told reporters, on camera, that “A gun is not a defensive weapon.” He goes on to explain, in his own twisted logic: “A gun is an offensive weapon used to intimidate and show power. Police officers don’t carry a gun as a defensive weapon to defend themselves or their other officers.”
In other words, he’s claiming that cops carry guns to intimidate and show power, not to protect themselves defensively. He further implies, ridiculously, that guns are in no way a deterrent against violence — that a violent assailant is just as likely to attack an unarmed person as an armed person wielding a gun in self defense.
Ken James, of course, just broadcast to the entire world that he has an IQ no higher than room temperature… on the Celsius scale! But the media plays it off as if his arguments somehow make sense: that ALL guns are offensive weapons and have no role in self defense.
So here’s the question: Do you agree with Ken James that guns have no role as a defensive weapon, even for cops? That guns are only offensive weapons used to intimidate and show power?
If so, you’ve been hypnotized by the media once again into believing something that’s off-the-wall stupid.
Final question: Building 7
Now here’s the really big question on media hypnosis. Nearly everyone in the mainstream has been hypnotized into thinking that on 9/11/2001, building 7 of the World Trade Center was brought down after being hit by an airplane.
Except building 7 wasn’t hit by any airplane at all. Only two buildings were hit by airplanes — the twin towers. Building 7 was hit by nothing except some falling debris.
According to official reports — which of course require you suspend all belief in the laws of physics — building 7’s internal support structures all snapped at precisely to same moment due to a couple of office fires burning inside the building, causing it to miraculously collapse demolition-style into its own footprint.
Although such a feat normally requires months of planning, engineering calculations and the careful placement of demolition charges on building support structures, we are told that none of this was needed in the case of building 7; that office fires melted concrete-and-steel structural columns simultaneously throughout the building. Never before in the recorded history of architecture has a fire ever brought down a concrete-and-steel building, but we’re supposed to believe it somehow happened with building 7 in a perfect pattern of symmetrical collapse.
So here’s the question: Do you believe the official story on building 7? If so, you’ve been wildly hypnotized by the media into believing an obvious fiction that wholly violates the laws of physics and materials science. Concrete doesn’t burn, for starters, and getting a building like that to fall into its own footprint requires all the concrete and steel support columns to be severed almost simultaneously.
And yet, amazingly, most Americans believe whatever the media tells them. They are easily hypnotized into imagining they are seeing things that really aren’t there. It’s no different than a person under the influence of a stage hypnosis expert running around thinking they have a glass of water in their hands because they were told to believe so.
You are living in a hypnotized nation
Hypnosis is the process of reshaping the mind’s interpretation of sensory data. Through hypnosis, a person could be holding a red toy fire truck in their hands but told the fire truck is actually green. When asked what color the fire truck is, they will answer, “Green!”
The success of hypnosis relies on the suggestibility hard-wired into a person’s brain. Some people are far more suggestible than others. Those of us who are leaders in “alternative news” tend to be the least suggestible of all, while those who produce and consume mainstream media news are the most suggestible (and therefore gullible).
Successful hypnosis on a national scale requires a masterful hypnotist. That’s Obama, one of the most brilliant hypnotists ever observed in the history of politics. Obama’s skill is so good that he can tell you he’s doing the exact opposite of what he’s actually doing, and most people listening will believe every word he says. Obama is creating jobs. Obama is protecting your rights. And the fire truck is green.
If you are immune to hypnosis, then you share my frustrating in living in a nation of hypnotized people. I want to shout to people, “The fire truck is RED!” but of course this makes no sense to them, as they’ve been hypnotized into thinking it’s green.
The hypnotized masses will viciously defend their false beliefs
People who are hypnotized will persistently defend their hypnosis as if it were real. “It’s not RED!” they will shout, “The fire truck is GREEN, see?” And they’ll show it to you. It’s red, of course, but they think they’re showing you a green fire truck and they can’t understand why you don’t see it, too.
You find precisely this kind of thing on issues like gun control. The claim that “Guns kill people” is the logical equivalent of saying the fire truck is green. The claim of the California cop that “Guns are not defensive weapons” is like saying the fire truck has no wheels. The claim that building 7 collapsed due to office fires is like saying the fire truck is actually a really quiet puppy dog.
Importantly, a person who is sufficiently suggestible can be programmed to believe that a toy fire truck really is a puppy dog. They will pet it, talk to it, feed it and even take it for walks, believing it is a puppy dog. If you’ve never seen this kind of thing before, you need to see more examples of stage hypnosis.

Media hypnosis has reached a zenith with the recent Federale, Inc., killings in Boston, perhaps to the point of no longer being effective. We waker humans can only hope.
