The Realist Report - Tom in CT: Deception

On this edition of The Realist Report, we'll be joined once again by Tom in Connecticut. Tom and I will be discussing the systematic use of deception.

Please visit The Realist Report on TalkeShoe to download this and past episodes.

Below are relevant links and data for this program:

"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do." - quote attributed to Karl Rove


  • physical deception: the various adaptations nature has evolved to protect various species
  • psychological deception: the manipulation of human perception 

Both physical and psychological deception share:

"…two broad categories in the structure of deceit, hiding the real and showing the false. The second category cannot exist without the first, for all deception and cheating involves hiding. Level one deception, hiding, is itself divided into three distinct parts: masking, repackaging,
and dazzling. Level-two deception, showing, also has three parts: mimicking, inventing, and decoying…

The basic purpose of hiding is to screen or cloak a person, place, thing, direction, or time by a variety of means that range from the simple to the complex. These combined means hide by producing a cover. The basic purpose of showing is consciously to display the false which, perforce, must hide the real. In showing, the end result is to create an EFFECT, an illusion of the false as real. All SHOWING involves hiding, but HIDING almost never involves showing."

If we are considering the possibility of active deception by our adversary, then we must ascertain the likelihood that each individual piece of evidence is deceptive. A short list of indicators that helps in that task is:
  • Means
  • Opportunity
  • Motive
  • Past Operational Practices


  1. you just lost a ton of credit linking with mark allen. He's a freaking JEW.. his name is mark Goldstein he's a marketer and sells truth through deception.. please stay far away. he will never say Jew as he claims he renounced his jewness... which we all know is impossible..

    1. LOL, you must not have listened to the show. I specifically said this Markus Allen guy, and many of the other PSYOP/media fakery researchers I've encountered on the internet, blame everything on the Masons and Jesuits, rather than the Jews. I am not "linking" with this guy or endorsing his views. I didn't even know he was a Jew. I know very little about the guy, other than he has some interesting views on PSYOPS and media fakery.

  2. sorry dude.. when I hear his name red flags start flying...I did just finish it, and heard you say that.. again,sorry for that..

    1. Hello jankyJ,went and checked out your blog,I found a lot of good info there.Too bad our schools and media don't tell us about who was the first slave owner...gotta keep that white guilt trip running strong !Going to try out the toothpaste recipe I found at your blog.Thanks for your efforts.

  3. Another very informative and excellent show.Thanks John and Tom.Looking foward to the next show.

  4. You guys mentioned that lawmakers were the likely target audience for the Sandy Hook psyop and now this recent one in Washington.

    This makes sense. There was even a reference made that "this could have been Congress".

    I would not be surprised if they started targeting elected officials in this way - either as a faked event or real-world.

    After all, this is an influence operation. They want the laws changed. They want to destroy key provisions of the Constitution. Particularly the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

    It would be a good idea for people to call and write their (s)elected official asking about how they feel about being targeted by influence operations in this way.

    The bottom line here is pretty obvious.
