Mockingbird: any of several songbirds of the New World family “Mimidae.” The common, or northern, mockingbird is well known as a mimic: it has been known to imitate the songs of 20 or more species within 10 minutes. (Britannica.com, accessed 10/9/2022)
A beautiful newscaster brushes her dark, shoulder length hair. She sits at her make up table in the studio with lights beaming onto her face, her gaze into the mirror. Set neatly in front of her is a collection of makeup brushes. She clutches one and gently pulls her hair back to apply powder to her face. Once finished, she confidently walks to the news desk, her notes prepared and waiting for her as she takes her seat. She exchanges a few effronteries with her colleagues and the countdown begins. 5…she checks that her mic is secure. 4…her hands find her hair and smooth out the leftover fly-aways. 3…she wipes the corners of her mouth and any excess lipstick away. 2…she sits up straight, her piercing stare finds its way to the camera. 1…it’s showtime.
She boldly reads from the teleprompter in her most assertive camera-ready voice.
On the other side of the screen is a working mother half listening, feverishly making a lunch for her kid who hates the school lunch that day, fish sticks. It’s a construction worker watching from his brief morning stop at the coffee shop before heading to the job site. It’s the businessmen and women during the daily commute to the office. It’s you. It’s me.
The news is our sense of truth, our sense of reality. In an instant, what we hear on the news can evoke feelings of pride, happiness, or excitement. But it can just as easily fill us with life-changing fear resulting in a societal shift, in what feels like our whole existence. If an entity wanted to take over a country, it wouldn’t be hard, knowing the impact of the information shared by the news and its effect on a population. “Information…knowledge is power. If you can control the information, you can control people.” Author Tom Clancy has said.
The information can be modified easily now too. What once was a legitimate top level news report, or a homemade video created by a concerned citizen can be scrubbed in a matter of minutes online. This blatant censorship leaves many to wonder if what they just observed with their own eyes was nothing more than an unchecked imagination. Witnesses are made to look insane. Researchers run short on sources of truth. “Fact checkers” on social media sites, funded largely by special interest groups, have become prominent and corroborate whatever reality is being pushed that week.
Every day, from what seems like everywhere, we are inundated with “news.” Yet despite all the information, no one has been able to come to any sensible conclusion. It seems two very different realities have emerged depending on what side of the political fence you stand. As a result, families have been torn apart and close friends have become strangers.
Was this done by design? Could it be this confusion was propagated by an agency within our own country? It’s not as far-fetched as it might seem. After all, it was William Casey, the Central Intelligence Agency director from 1981-1987, who stated in 1981, “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” And it was the Inaugural CIA director, Wm Colby, who asserted the purpose of the CIA’s Project Mockingbird was to spread disinformation through the media in America, which included television, newspapers, as well as magazines. “The CIA even ran a formal training program in the 1950s to teach its agents to be journalists,” Carl Bernstein, an American journalist well-studied on the CIA’s relationship with media, wrote in a 1977 Rolling Stones article. To better understand the organization, it’s necessary to revisit its inception.
During World War II, a spy organization known as the Office of Strategic Services was created and served as the precursor for the CIA. Once the war was over, President Harry Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947, officially forming the Central Intelligence Agency. The purpose of the CIA, the public was told, “was to fight communism in the world’s shadows and back alleys, from Bangkok to Berlin.” (George Magazine, “The CIA – 50 Years of Success, Scandals, and Sabotage,” James Risen, October 1997) Behind closed doors, however, was a different story.
Many have heard the whispers of CIA corruption throughout the years. Though shrouded in secrecy, Americans seem to have a clear assessment of the agency, manufactured from what they’ve seen on TV or heard in the movies. Much less of the population would be aware of two programs carried out in the wake of WWII, created in conjunction with the birth of the CIA.
Operation Paperclip and Operation Mockingbird. Two programs connected surreptitiously. Operation Paperclip’s mission was to covertly aid in the assimilation and protect the identities of many top Nazi officials after WWII, an estimated 55,000 of them. These Nazis were not only allowed to enter the United States in droves but were integrated comfortably into our society.
Operation Mockingbird‘s mission? To inject disinformation into American media outlets without the public finding out. To start the program, the CIA used approximately 400 of these new American (Nazi) “citizens” to carry out the initial stages of Mockingbird. For more than 7 decades, Americans have been subject to CIA influence in our media, despite its repeated ability to walk back accusations of the stealthy connection in the name of maintaining secrecy.
The CIA’s justification for spreading disinformation may have initially been in the name of safety, like most freedom-weakening programs. It’s easy to sell evil when it’s packaged as necessary for the country’s well-being. That argument, however, should have been null and void upon the USSR, and thereby the “Red Scare,” being dissolved. Yet, the CIA continued its connection to the media well after that and even expanded on it in the case of Hollywood (more on this in future issues).
And one might suggest the journalists were merely an insurance policy for the CIA, a way to quickly sweep up any brewing negativity about the agency and brush it under the rug before major reputational damage. Considering the amount of journalists on the CIA payroll from all branches of media, which was estimated at one point to be around 400 on the low end, one has to ask, “Did the CIA really need that many journalists just for damage control?” Or was there, perhaps, more at play all along?
It was Adolf Hitler’s former bodyguard, Otto Scorzeny, who stated on his deathbed, “What we are taught about history in American schools is not history, but a fairy tale. Better yet, it is propaganda designed to hoodwink an unsuspecting society about its true heritage and the treasonous acts and sabotage that were conceived to bring about a New World Order. You are about to learn the real identities of those who have infiltrated your nation on behalf of secret societies intent on bringing about the total slavery of mankind.”
Subversion is the process by which enemies infiltrate a country with the goal of slowly changing its culture, weakening it over time, to the point when it is unrecognizable. The process is done by inserting anti-American propaganda and as a result, Americans begin to despise their own heritage. Divided, they question their history. Ideas that once seemed preposterous become mainstream, not in the name of social justice like the subverters advertise, no. It is done in the name of destabilizing the very fabric holding the country together. The quickest and easiest way to subvert a country is by gaining control of the media and controlling what citizens hear on the radio, see on television, and read in the newspapers.
In 1961, President Kennedy said, “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence, on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”
The speech addressed the media’s responsibility to ensure professionalism, to maintain our national security by not revealing secrets that would give our enemies the upper hand. But it accomplished something else. It laid out, in great detail, the enemy we are up against.
We’ve heard the rebuttal “but if THAT were true, wouldn’t it be in the news?” Given what we now know of the history of subversion, the CIA, and the cooperation of the media, the answer to the aforementioned question is a resounding no. Our media is, and has been for some time, complicit.
It’s generally human nature to side with whatever information is first fed to us. A wise man once stated, “It’s easier to fool someone than to convince them they were fooled.” Therefore, when the media tells us the New World Order that was planned for us is nothing more than a conspiracy theory, it is even more difficult to convince people that it is, in fact, real. Perhaps you, the reader of this article, have found yourself disagreeing, though you have no other reason for disagreeing other than what you heard on the news. This confusion is exactly what the media and all the puppeteers (subverters) behind it want.
Another tactic used frequently is done by accusing a target of exactly what those on the offense are engaged in. Want to ensure no one finds out about your propaganda program? Accuse the other side of releasing propaganda. Need to make sure no one finds out your game plan? Circulate an article stating exactly what your game plan is, only have the roles reversed. By the time anyone catches on to the truth, the damage has been done, the grave has been dug. One only needs to look back at the last two years of media releases to see this phenomenon, the inaccuracies. They are countless.
At George, we seek to expose these inaccuracies, to paint the true picture no matter what political side was “right” or “wrong.” Political parties do not matter anymore for good, and evil existed in both parties. Americans are yearning for the truth, and we will get the truth. We will come together again, and we will be united once more.
A mockingbird imitates other birds. Our mockingbird media has been mimicking one another, singing a reused melody that’s out of tune with Americans, our culture, and our foundation. It’s time to break the chain of bondage and the first link we must liberate from is the propaganda machine known as the mainstream “mockingbird” media.
“Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed, and no Republic can survive.” President John F. Kennedy

Not often are people able to connect and communicate with thousands and thousands of listeners and maintain the sense of humility required of true patriotism. We are happy to present to you our experience with just such a person. In a rare and deeply insightful opportunity, our Editor-In-Chief, Gene Ho, was able to sit at the Mensa Libertatis with none other than the much-accomplished Scott McKay. As a social media influencer, Scott has taken up a mantle that few are willing to even acknowledge … that of Truth and Liberty, no matter the cost.
The man certainly knows how to make an entrance … when on the road, Scott commands the stage from the first instant as he appears wielding a battle axe in his right hand, his firearm safely holstered to his belt, and AC/DC thundering in the tympanis of the crowds’ eardrums.
Scott is busy traveling our great nation on his ‘Advancing the Forkin’ Line’ tour, but he was kind enough to let us know a little about how he sees the state of things and what real patriots like you can do to defend our God-Given liberties. He is a lifelong entrepreneur, but Scott dedicated a substantial portion of his life working within the halls of politics. Carrying with him the inspiration to make our country better than it has ever been, Scott lit out to the territories and shouldered various political assignments including grunt worker, campaign manager, campaign consultant, and Los Angeles GOP Committee member.
After 16 years, he was so disenchanted with the corruption in DC, he gave up his goal of public service and walked away from the world of politics. Being tired of waiting to get things done and blocked by other politicians who claimed to be allies but were only stumbling stones, he knew that he had a mission that could wait no longer … but the road Scott began walking was not without pitfalls. After many years of competitive bodybuilding and owning/operating several high-end fitness & wellness centers, he was in a catastrophic motorcycle accident in 2014 that left him physically disabled. In a situation where many would give up the good fight and cut whatever losses remained, Scott surrendered his health and wellbeing to his higher power.
Through his faith, support, and a mission more important than any other in his life, he went on to reclaim his complete mobility and is now battling harder and hotter than ever for those truths we all hold self-evident. His ideas are, of course, not without opposition. He knows firsthand that the elites who have seized the reigns of our nation are not trying to solve the problems, but to make the problems go away for the “Specials,” those in power who love to think that the citizens serve the government, not the other way around. Scott’s experience within the slow-turning wheels of politics gives him a unique view on how our government runs, how it SHOULD be, and how to achieve that necessary change. Scott takes a sledgehammer to this wall of opposition with fervor and righteous anger, but one man can only make a hole so big … that is why he recognizes the real power of Patriotstreetfighter.com is the support of compatriots, patriots who recognize the immense importance of returning to a life of facts, humility, and brotherhood.
Gene asked first, “What do the supporters of the movement mean to you?”
There was no hesitation whatsoever as Scott quickly answered that “they are the lifeblood of the effort.” He is the voice of the movement Scott says, but the real force and power comes from the supporters, the people who rally together in fellowship and celebration of freedom, but also with the somber purpose to expose those who would seek to destroy our great Union. He always takes time to speak with his supporters, but he realizes that the greatest part of his business is to get to meet like-minded citizens who share his love of liberty and the great people who support her.
He is the last person to leave. When on the road, making speeches, or talking intimately with fans and patriots, Scott enjoys being the “last person to leave,” making sure to speak to as many people for as long as he is able. He knows that the connection he shares with them is powerful, but fragile, and the ley line between him and others can only be maintained by ceaseless attention and care. Referring to an anecdote he recently heard, Gene asked Scott to describe his feelings after a situation that led him to miss an opportunity to meet and chat with a few supporters. They were ready to see him after an event, but Scott had to excuse himself for what he thought would be just a moment. That moment took longer than expected, and when Scott returned to their location, dismayed that people had left, either by their own accord or at the behest of the event’s security team. The idea that he might have left someone in the dark or feeling ignored by the lack of interaction was taken as nothing less than personal for him, something that he still thinks about and uses as an impetus to remember who he is really doing all this for. Distraction from the true cause and deception from the enemy lead to dissolution of the effort. Scott realized that he was not fulfilling his soul by just touring and speaking, but that battling to help save the country and his kinsmen was the end game of all his struggles.

You know it; it’s like watching a movie, and midway through you’re dying to tell others the ending you’ve already figure out. “Just watch. Any bets that…” And there it is! And it happens just like as you predicted. “Ah, ha!!! I told you!!” And everyone sitting next is just shaking their head because they guessed the same ending. As if YOU had some great insight.
Doesn’t matter how improbable it may seem. Deep inside – you know it – and everyone else does too. Regardless of how you feel about his personality, Donald Trump’s policies were great for America and good for you as well. Be honest with yourself: If you could trade him—straight up—for Joe Biden today, would you?
Nearly everyone has shared their theories. As for me, I love them all. In one corner, you have theories ranging from executive orders that would put the military in control. Conversely, you have scenarios where states would realize, “Oops? We made a mistake. Return these Electoral College votes into the Trump column.” I think I’ve heard nearly all the scenarios. Some, I believe, could be a reality. Others…not so much. Here’s what I think just might be playing out…
What we have seen in the past year is runaway inflation and “a common enemy” (gas prices) worthy to unite Americans. There is always a segment of the population that says, “It’s not the PRESIDENT that set the gas prices!” However, it was Joe Biden who axed the Keystone XL pipeline his first day upon taking control.
Greatly reducing supply while demand remains constant is “Economics 101”; what did he think would happen to the price of gas? Joe knew. They all did and we’re paying the price. Most Americans agree that the President and/or his policies have SOMETHING to do with the gas prices. It’s painful. Even when you’re filling up your tank you play games with yourself. It’s kind of like when you purposely set your clock 10 minutes ahead to “fool” yourself into thinking you are behind on time, just so you can be ahead of time.
I’ve done it. I don’t want the pain of spending $100 to fill up my tank. So, I’ve filled it halfway as if two fifty-dollar “fill-ups” feels better than a hundred-dollar, one-time fill-up. Most Americans have blamed this on Joe Biden. With ALL DUE RESPECT, Mr. Biden… Don’t shoot the messenger…
People have blamed Joe Biden for our economic woes, and I know this. Americans have NEVER been so united. When you are in gas pumps and you have a “Come and Take It” bumper sticker on the back of your car, and the guy next to you has a “COEXIST” bumper sticker? And the guy next to you figures you’re a conservative talking about guns, and you assume he is a liberal? All good… but are we really sworn enemies? You can both be at the pump and agree that we deserve something better than $5/gallon gasoline?
The economy, open borders, Afghanistan debacle, and the other “mistakes” are uniting Americans. I’ve even heard from my left leaning friends who are saying, “I still hate Trump, but I’m going to vote for him next time.”
Here’s another thing… There are some on the right that say that the system is broken and that there is fraud at the ballot boxes. Regardless of how you feel about that, here is what has been going on these past two years: The STATES have been tightening up their voting laws.
Many Americans still falsely believe that the federal elections are all run by the Federal Government. In fact? That is what the “fight” is still about to this day. See – the Federal Government currently doesn’t dictate “how voting is to be done.” There is no magic button that says, “Let’s get rid of voting machines and let’s switch to paper ballots.” There is nothing that says, “Let’s do the “purple thumb” version of voting. You vote, and then you dip your right thumb in purple ink to show you voted.”
I’m hoping that some of these solutions may have their place in due time. But here is the reality…it’s the individual states that have jurisdiction over the federal elections. Each state does it “their way.” For Conservatives? That is what they want. Conservatives want STATES’ RIGHTS.
During the past two years, there has been a plethora of laws in battleground states that have changed. I love that word “plethora.” It reminds me of the “Three Amigos” movie back in the 80’s. “Can you even define ‘plethora’?” Research for yourself. See how many laws that the conservative legislatures in Conservative States have been changed. You don’t need me to tell you; look it up yourself.
There are hundreds of STATE laws that have been changed in battleground states that favor the conservative agenda. Many of these are things that some would think are “no brainers.” Such as requiring a driver’s licenses (or similar ID) to vote.
At the end of the day, many people want Trump back. Ronald Reagan said it best during his reelection bid, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” People could lie, but we can’t really lie to ourselves. Even if you CAN set your clock 10 minutes faster to “trick yourself.” The simplest, most obvious question: “Is America better off than we were two years ago?”
When you find the honest answer in both your mind and your heart, then you will know and tell the future. Just don’t blurt it out to your fellow movie-goers.

I’m honored to have a very special interview with an artist many of you have come to know, and respect, for his amazing art. He’s an artist who will be remembered as a Patriot, who with his brush, sharp eye, and great talent, captured the political battle of our lifetime in brilliant color. We’ve seen those, such as, Lt. General Michael Flynn and the greatest President of our lifetime, Donald Trump, come alive in his pieces. His artwork has also given us a look into the “Hitleresque” tyranny of those who have tried to destroy all that we know and love about our great Nation. You know him as: The Commander’s Artist.
DG- At what age did you discover you had a gift for art?
Well, by the age of nine I was drawing comic book characters. My aunt thought I was tracing the images but when my mother showed her the original image I was drawing from, mine was twice the size.
DG- What type of training did you receive for expanding YOUR art?
Well, after I served in the military for my country, I attended the Art Institute to further my learning.
DG- What made you decide to do POLITICAL art as a form of communicating ideas?
I would say the idea came when the social media platforms started silencing Patriot Voices, truth, and facts. Memes were a way to say what needed to be said without saying a word. Then I decided to do more in the way of serious Prints as opposed to memes. I wanted it to be more professional mimicking a magazine cover.
DG- You pour your heart and soul into each piece. I feel your own convictions, beliefs and core values show in each one. How much do you feel you pull on these values when working on each individual painting?
I try to keep it simple not overpowering my values on others but just show how I perceive them.
DG- You bring such life to each piece. The characters in your Art seem to come from a place of deep admiration for Patriots, and at the same time, shines light on those who have shown themselves to be very much anti-American. Have you ever feared retaliation when you show them in an honest, truthful but what they see as unfavorable light?
Interesting question Donna, Yes at first but as of today I believe fear needs to be put in check if we want to get the truth out.
DG- I know you put many hours into each work of Art. Where do you get the ideas and decide which person or subject to work on next?
My friends call it a God thing! I have to agree with them because the ideas flow so naturally. I might be creative but this is coming from a higher creative spirit.
DG – How do you come up with amazing new ideas to paint?
Like I said it’s a God thing!
DG – At the event in Vegas, a lady came who had lost everything, her job gone, due to Covid-19, and she had spent the last of her money to get there. She wanted to be there to learn and meet Lt General Flynn. There was so much happening she wasn’t going to be able to meet him. As soon as you saw her heart breaking, you gifted her two signed art pieces by Gen-Flynn. You always make time and give to everyone.
What drives you to give so much of your hard work away, asking nothing in return?
Simple, it’s better to give than receive is what I believe is the true blessing in this life. Nothing worse than a greedy person always taking and never giving back. Believe me, I have met many like this.
DG – How did you meet General Flynn?
That’s a story that Gen-Mike are saving for another time to do together.
DG – Do you work with General Flynn? Was his sister the key to open the door? A friend told me Generals Flynn’s sister Barbara, followed her on Twitter, so I made contact with her there and Barbara is the one who put me in touch with General Flynn.
Yes, I am General Flynn’s commissioned Artist among many other high-profile people. We have worked together to do Benefits for many different people and organizations, and still do.
DG – I hear Donald Trump has your art, is this true? Just recently at Mar-a-Lago?
Yes, that is true. I am truly honored he loved the PRINT. of him and his son Barron.
DG- I’ve known you for a long time and I know how hard you’ve worked and how long you have waited for one of your Art pieces to get to President Trump. Can you describe how you felt when you finally witnessed the amazing Piece of Trump and his son Baron being handed to him? I know I was excited, and my heart was so very proud for you.
I nearly fell off my chair when the news from two of my friends texted me a video of him receiving it.
DG – When did you get involved with Clay Clark Freedom tour?
The first time was July of 2021. I was asked by Gen-Mike to show the world my art as a motivational and inspiring form for the true patriots to get involved in saving AMERICA.
DG – Had you had any clue to the fact GEORGE publication was interested in you doing the cover art?
Had no clue till I received a phone call asking if I’ll do the cover art for all issues.
DG- When you found out your Art was going to be on the cover of GEORGE, would you give us an idea of how you processed that fact, knowing that you Almost Quit at one time?
Well, there’s a person in my life that kept me motivated to keep doing my work. I was about to retire my art creations. A longtime friend Donna Gwin or KittyPatriot4America as she’s known on social media, she refused to let me quit. If I mentioned quitting, she would stay on me until I gave in. She kept telling me, “God has a plan for you Mike, You Can’t Stop Now!” She was relentless, but right.
DG – Some have said because of you Gen. Flynn was made into a superhero before he was even acquitted.
General Flynn was a Hero long before I started doing this Art. I have however portrayed him to be the Hero and exceptional Patriot he is. I do believe my Art brought much attention to what General Flynn and his family had been going through. The gross injustice, false accusations, unfair attacks and framing of a great Patriot who gave thirty plus years of his life, serving and defending our Country. I felt I had to do something, and this was something I could do.
DG- Did you give some of your Art Prints to be auctioned for General Flynn’s defense fund?
Yes. We had several auctions where one hundred percent of the funds went to his defense Fund. I wish I could have done more.
DG – Some say you’re the one who works in the background connecting many together, in fact even discovering talent for the movement. Examples?
Yes it’s true, but I would rather stay silent on who. They all know what I did for them and that’s good enough for me. Remember it’s better to give?
DG- I’ve witnessed how your Art brings Patriots together. We all have a common goal of Making America Great, saving our kids and grandkids futures and freedom. Much of your early Art was calling attention to different views of the right and left, Democrat vs Republican. Since we were so heavily silenced, banned and kept from speaking truth or stating facts, did you feel your Art and or Prints would help wake people up to the issues of our time? I feel your early memes and Prints were a brilliant way to get truth to many without saying a word.
Well you hope they would. Many caught the hidden messages in those early memes.
DG – How much of the content of your early works were focused on shining a Patriotic view and shining a light on the issues we found our Country facing?
DG- One of my most heartwarming moments was in Dallas when General Flynn was talking to Patriot Leonard Crowl, as he wanted to be portrayed in his Print, we heard his story and with not a dry eye in the room, the feeling of love and Patriotism filled that room. Without hesitation, you offered to paint Leonard in his uniform, and gift for him and his family. That touched his heart, but he wanted to “be a Patriot” he said.
Yes, he lost everything in a house fire. He was a Navy vet, he recently passed. I offered to paint him in his navy uniform, but he stopped me at, “No, I want to be a patriot this time. I already fought in WWII.” Leonard was the kindest person and very mentally sharp for his age in the upper 90’s.
DG – Where does your generosity come from? You always give freely and fiercely defend what is right. You are one of the most amazing Patriots I know. I’m honored to call you friend.
Thank you. Well, it’s my faith in God and faith in His justice.
