The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 and the Ugly Truth Discussion
This report candidly discusses the everyday use of propaganda in all of our media venues that was legalized by the Smith-Mundt modernization act of 2012 that was included the NDAA for 2013 that Obama signed into law on January 2, 2013.
This act once approved effectively repealed the ban of the use of propaganda against the US population and as a result helped to create the new propaganda industrial complex that today is a multibillion dollar industry earning revenue for lying and spreading propaganda that is hidden and veiled from any truthful disclosure because such propaganda operations are intentionally and cleverly hidden behind national security provisions and restrictions.
Since propaganda is today legal, we as a nation are no longer allowed to question the truthfulness of any govt. propaganda operation that in any way questions or runs contrary to what oficials claim.
Propaganda is in effect keeping us from not only knowing the truth, but which also keeps us from being able to question or challenge any operation that they claim is being conducted under propaganda protocols. This is the situation we as a nation currently face every day and which is keeping us from seeing any possible future changes to their current and ongoing operations that are intentional lies, deception and propaganda operations being used against the population of the USA.

The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012. it completely lifted the long-existing ban on the domestic dissemination of U.S. government-produced propaganda.
The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 appears to serve this purpose by allowing for the American public to be a target audience of U.S. government-funded information and propaganda campaigns.
For decades, the U.S. government had been allowed to produce and disseminate propaganda abroad in order to drum up support for its foreign wars but had been banned from distributing it domestically after the passage of the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948. However, the Modernization Act’s co-authors, Reps. Mac Thornberry (R-TX) and Adam Smith (D-WA, no relation to the Smith of the 1948 act), asserted that removing the domestic ban was necessary in order to combat “al-Qaeda’s and other violent extremists’ influence among populations.
