Michael McKibben and his team of researchers at Americans4Innovation.org have dug up “indictable evidence” usable in a court of law regarding the foundation of what we know today as the mainstream media, in tandem with the intelligence agencies of the 5 Eyes Alliance and how the origins of today’s mainstream news propaganda outlets and those of the main national intelligence services are inextricably entwined.
McKibben’s group has uncovered that the original MI5, MI6 and GCHQ were founded and staffed in the first decade of the 20th century by newspaper men, which is a fascinating revelation. There are documents that show how newspaper men and later, those from TV and radio comprised the original staffs at the CIA, FBI, NSA and the State Department – and that all were directly under the thumb of a group of people in England called the Pilgrims Society.
As McKibben says, “This is the body of the Leviathan that is what we call the Deep State today.”
There were 650 people in attendance at the Imperial Press Conference in 1909. On the surface, it was a group of newspaper people from all over the British Empire gathered at Shepherd’s Bush in the West End of London, in a pavilion at the French-British Exhibition called White City. Ostensibly, they were gathered to discuss things like the cost of telegrams used in newspaper reporting and the future of journalism, as one would expect at a conference like this.
But what McKibben’s research team discovered on the side was that a select group were having secret meetings with the House of Commons and the Prime Minister, planning the formation of the Empire Press Union. Soon afterwards, Sir Gilbert Parker, the Prime Minister referenced these meetings as the source for the founding of the Home Defence and Colonial Defense, aka, MI5 and MI6. Gilbert even stated in the parliamentary record that he was going to recruit two people from this Imperial Press Conference to assist him with gathering information from around the planet. These 650 newspaper men would be stationed all over the world in the Commonwealth nations, spreading propaganda as paramilitary soldiers and intelligence agents, controlling public opinion through the printed word.
Thus, all of the leading British and American newspapers were weaponized in 1909 by the British Government-led Pilgrims Society, including The Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, Times, Daily Mirror, Daily Express, Sunday Times, Observer, Financial Times, Washington Post, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, etc.
As radio and television emerged in the 1920s, the list of Pilgrim-weaponized intelligence/propaganda/media expanded to BBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CBC, CNN, CNBC, Comcast, FOX, CIA, FBI, NSA and the State Department. All remain under the control of the (British) Pilgrims Society to this day.
Douglas Gabriel and Michael McKibben take a deep dive into the historical details of all of this, which sheds such an important light on the agenda driving so much of the information we consume daily.
