Propaganda, Psychological Warfare, and The War For Your Mind in Wake of Boston Bombing
Just after the bombing occurred, alternate media source Inforwars.com dispatched a reporter to see what he could uncover, and to ask some tough questions. This is the sort of reporting and investigative journalism we could never expect from mainstream corporate media sources today. To the contrary, regular news sources have already been caught in a number of lies, spreading untruths and disinformation, ignoring pertinent facts, and in general trying very hard to paint a particular picture about the terrible event.
Of course, this is not a complete endorsement either, of Alex Jones, his InfoWars network, or any alternate media source in general. The idea here is for people to judge for themselves, to exercise critical thinking, and to have as many genuine facts at their disposal as possible. But to that end, it certainly appears that alternate media sources have become our only reliable source of open information.
Dan Bidonbi, reporting for Infowars, was there for the initial press conferences.
Just looking at that video alone, it would be easy to write off the reporter as another one of those “wacko conspiracy nuts.” Sadly, his question was probably the single most important question asked during that press conference, and it went unanswered. It is not conspiracy theory that the police were conducting a so-called drill when these bombs went off. It is not conspiracy theory they were telling people before, and even after bombs had actually gone off, that it was just an exercise.
University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach is just one of many witnesses who has come forward to corroborate this account. Before the bombs went off, he was concerned by bomb-sniffing dogs, rooftop snipers, and intense police activity.
“It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill… They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about.” -Coach Ali Stevenson (SOURCE)

Witnesses at the scene are not the only source of information though. While the mainstream media can be a very unreliable source of information, they also make mistakes by reporting actual facts from time to time – inconvenient facts that do not fit the ongoing “script” and will therefore never be reported on again, except in the underground media who happened to pick up that information before it got scrubbed entirely from the internet.
Of course we must also understand that not all false reports by the media are necessarily deliberate. In any unfolding events there will be chaos, conflicting reports, and so forth. On the other hand, there are some things that would never be reported at all, unless there was a reason. Reporting that police were conducting a drill that involved a controlled explosion is one such example. Again, keep in mind, that this was reported before the bombs actually went off. So the Boston Globe cannot simply dismiss their reports as being an error because of confusion after the blasts went off. (See here – Strong Evidence ‘Drill’ Was Cover For Actual Bombing In Boston)
So we see from all of this that the questions posed by InfoWars reporter Dan Bidonbi were not at all the product of lunacy, or some hidden agenda to discredit authorities simply for the sake of discrediting authorities. The questions were completely legitimate, should have been answered, and yet still have not been answered.
Despite the most comprehensive, invasive, violent, and Constitutionally offensive manhunt ever conducted on American soil, police actually failed to find “Suspect #2” Dzhokar Tsarnaev after his alleged shootout with police some 20 hours earlier. Instead, he was found by a civilian homeowner who went out to check on his boat after the declaration of martial law had been lifted, and found the suspect laying inside. Despite the fact that the suspect was not armed, police opened fire on him with high-power weapons.
Thanks to Dan Bidonbi reporting for InfoWars, we have learned now that even though police didn’t bother to check the boat, they had ripped through the rest of the neighborhood with menacing threat of force, and even stormed through the house right across the street from where the suspect was eventually found.
Be sure to check out these video interviews – Boston Gestapo Victims Speak OutThere, we see that Mr. Bidonbi is conducting real interviews, with real people in that community who were directly affected by all that unfolded there. The interviews are rather lengthy, and were not edited to cherry-pick small soundbites to be broadcast for propaganda value. In fact, some of what was said there by the folks interviewed does not fit in line with other InfoWars reports or the consensus of conspiracy theorists.
One such contradiction is that a person who is interviewed there by Bidonbi says that he saw Dzhokar run over his brother Tamerlan, who was laying in the street at police gunpoint. This actually conflicts with other witness statements who claim the police ran over the suspect in the street. Those statements also conflict with the assessment of a doctor, who says that the suspect was not run over at all.
This is what the news is supposed to be – an open funnel of information, uncut, and in the raw. From all of these reports, we can assess for ourselves, and extrapolate whatever truth is there to be found.
Yet, this sort of reporting is dangerous to the real conspirators and their hidden agendas, whatever those agendas might be, dangerous to mainstream media who are being undermined and made fools of by true journalism, but perhaps most of all, dangerous to people like Dan Bidonbi who have the courage to bring you this information.
Given all that is at stake here, the entire public perception of the Boston bombing, of the war on terror, of our own government, it is not surprising that certain powers-that-be would finally engage in direct psychological warfare. Alex Jones and his networks can no longer just be written off as lunacy. Increasing numbers of people are taking these things seriously. People are realizing that we, as a society, have been duped by our government and by the media.
But how do to the powers-that-be undermine the alternative media? How can the liars put the rustling sheep back to sleep, even with wolves scratching at the door? How can the liars discredit the seekers of truth? The answer is, to engage someone like Dan Bidonbi, directly. Make it appear as if the attack is spontaneous. Make it appear as though it is just an average person, a “one of us” sort of person, a “real patriot” who is utterly offended by the mere presence of someone like Dan Bidonbi in his midst. Better yet, shine the spotlight on a “true believer.” Someone who is utterly incapable of even considering inconvenient facts that run contrary to what is “allowed” to be entered into public consciousnesses. A shill, who doesn’t even realize that he is a shill.
Enter, Roger Nicholson, who launches a misguided and disgusting attack. Sadly though, there certainly are people out there who will be duped by the ignorant vitriol spewed by the likes of this Nicholson character. Indeed, the mainstream media is counting on the vast majority of Americans to be swayed by this vulgar level of propaganda. MSNBC gives Roger Nicholson airtime simply to bash Alex Jones, and to attract national attention to Nicholson’s petty little rant toward an alternate media reporter.
Nicholson’s MSNBC suggested that he was not just some random guy off the street. He has some connections to the media as well. Perhaps this was the channel through which he was recruited as a minion of the agenda. Bona fide shill or not though, this clip is quite revealing as to his true nature, and the sort of person who the powers-that-be expect us to be like, and to identify with.
Finally, in this video, Nicholson actually appears on InfoWars as a guest. His murderous, psychotic nature bubbles to the surface again, though not quite as boldly as in the video above. But here we get a deeper look at how contradictory, delusional, utterly and willfully ignorant he actually is.
