Default NDAA - Legalizes more Propaganda

Gov't wants to do more propaganda than the MSM already provides via project mocking bird etc..

...NDAA 2012 CODIFIED INDEFINITE DETENTION. NOW NDAA 2013 LEGALIZES DOMESTIC PROPAGANDA.

What the Democrats and Republicans agree on is far more damaging and dangerous than the wedge issues on which they supposedly don't. We saw that last year with the enactment of Public Law 112-81, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012), which had bipartisan sponsorship and sailed through both House and Senate with overwhelming bipartisan majority support. Now acceleratedly close on its heels comes H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (NDAA 2013), which glided through the House with broad bipartisan support on May 18 and is now in the hands of the Senate:

National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (H.R. 4310) - GovTrack.us

Attached to that bill is a bipartisan-sponsored amendment summarized as follows:

"Amendment No. 114 - Reps. Thornberry (R-TX) and Smith (D-WA): The amendment would amend the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 (known as the Smith-Mundt Act) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1986 and 1987 to clarify the authorities of the Department of State and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to prepare, disseminate and use public diplomacy information [propaganda] abroad and to strike the current ban on domestic dissemination of such material. The amendment would clarify that the Smith-Mundt Act's provisions related to public diplomacy information [propaganda] do not apply to other federal departments or agencies (including the DoD)."

H.R. 4310amdts: Amendments to H.R. 4310, National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 - Legislative Digest - GOP.gov

The full text of the amendment is assumed to be H.R. 5736, euphemistically labelled the "Smith Mundt Modernization Act of 2013". You can read that here:

Full Text of H.R. 5736: To amend the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 to authorize ... - GovTrack.us

Thornberry amendment to allow domestic distribution of propaganda - full text

This amendment legalizes what many think the government has been doing for years anyway: using false propaganda to influence the decisions and control the minds of its own citizens. ...

I'm not going to pontificate and tell you to execute your government at dawn, but it wouldn't be a bad idea.
