——-RED FLAGS PEOPLE——–
I am all for stopping foreign threats ! This bill DOES NOT “just” do that !
Track , Analysis,Disseminate,Propaganda,
Due Regard, Privacy, Civil Liberties , foreign,states,non-states. All these words are from the information on the “engagement center” bill.
In English ..my understating is my “freedom of speech” to write stories like I do here , will now be decided by the New Secretary of State (Exxon Mobile)
Instead of me telling you my stories which I see as the “truth” from what I witness and learn. This Exxon guy will run this “engagement center” and decide if what I say is the “truth” or they consider as “propaganda” because they do NOT like what I say …..lol Now that’s funny!
So basically I feel it really doesn’t matter who you vote for because obviously it’s all about surpressing our voices, using our tax$ to build an “engagement center” to then “scare” us to be careful on how we speak …. and y’all are worried about Trump….. Obama has set him up ! WWF Tag Team if you ask me ! The joke is on all of us ! You can’t make this crap up !
Cost of $60,000,000 for the Engagement Center from the department of defense.
The fact that the incoming
Sec of State = Exxon Mobile
Rebecca explains to us
“Soon the CEO of Exxon will be in charge of deciding what is “propaganda” undermining US national security interests. “
