The Corbett Report (watch it here: Propaganda Watch for July 22, 2020) was entitled "Who Cares What Celebrities Think." This is my summary of the 17-minute video. The World Health Organization (WHO) hired a public relations firm that selected the celebrities to sell and amplify WHO's message about Covid-19. What a coincidence that it was the same P.R. firm that was used to sell the first Gulf War! It is now known that it was a lie when the Kuwaiti girl reported about Iraqi soldiers taking babies out of incubators, but it most likely helped galvanize the American public into accepting a new war that would otherwise be unpopular.

Event 201, held on October 18, 2019, was a 3.5 hour panel discussion among 15 public health, government, and business leaders, who discussed what should be done if we have a worldwide pandemic in the future. One of the things they discussed was the problem of online misinformation and disinformation that might occur if we should have a real pandemic. For example, some people might falsely believe that the pandemic was caused by pharmaceutical companies in order to increase their profits. To counter misinformation, the panel discussed that it might be necessary to shut down the internet, censor social media, and scrub websites that are promoting this disinformation.

A member of the panel said international organizations like the UN and WHO can use the "soft power" of religious leaders and other "influentials" to help various countries deal with the misinformation, and he said this method is better than challenging sovereign countries directly. When the real pandemic occurred early in 2020, Tom Hanks, a celebrity, was used as a model to teach people how to self-isolate and comply with medical authorities. Then in April, the WHO helped organize the major artists and celebrities that put on a virtual "one world" concert. Then more celebrities were presented in May that told us to listen to the experts who know what they are talking about.

The name of this public relations firm that the World Health Organization hired in May 2020 was Hill + Knowlton Strategies, which selected celebrity "influencers" for greater amplification of WHO's message. Hill + Knowlton's proposal was first reported by the Daily Beast. It was a $135,000 contract. Hill + Knowlton Strategies was registered as a foreign agent to lobby on behalf of the WHO.

By the 1990s, the post-Vietnam public was growing increasingly wary of calls for war in far-flung corners of the world. So in 1990, the politicians and their Deep State controllers required that the American public be motivated to wage war against Iraq for its invasion of Kuwait. They hired a P.R. firm, Hill + Knowlton Strategies, to sell lies to Joe 6-pack and Jane soccer-mom. The most prominent lie was a young Kuwaiti girl, Nayirah, who sparked international headlines for her shocking testimony before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus in October 1990. She told of the horrors she witnessed of Iraqi soldiers who came into a Kuwaiti hospital with guns and "took the babies out of incubators and left them to die on the cold floor." Her story was presented on the evening news and dramatized by President Bush on 6 separate occasions. This may have set the tone whether to use American forces to defend Kuwait.

The Gulf War Resolution made its way into the House, and the incubator story was also discussed in the Senate. The vote passed and combat operations began in January 1991. The only problem was that the Kuwaiti girl, Nayirah, was not some anonymous Kuwaiti girl. A subsequent CBS investigation (December 14, 1992) discovered that she was the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. Her testimony had been written for her by Hill + Knowlton Strategies, the P.R. firm hired by an organization called Citizens for a Free Kuwait to help sell the Gulf War. And the Congressional Human Rights caucus that held the Human Rights hearing where Nayirah gave her testimony was later found out to be a Hill + Knowlton front.

Thus, Hill + Knowlton Strategies, the company that sold lies about babies in incubators to kick off the first Gulf War is the same public relations firm that the WHO is using to sell its propaganda campaign about Covid-19 using the voices of celebrities. James Corbett states that this contract between Hill + Knowlton and the WHO is just one aspect of a much larger strategy that the WHO is using. This new finding of the WHO's involvement with Hill + Knowlton Strategies that is registered as a foreign agent of the United States gives another reason to those who believe that the pandemic is a plandemic.

Corbett believes Americans are no longer buying the ruse of celebrities singing "Imagine" and "Kum ba yah" to show their support of medical authorities. Americans are suffering from mass unemployment and the economy is collapsing in a "controlled demolition." This is part of The Great Reset of Covid-1984. Corbett believes that the vast majority of citizens do not care what these celebrities think, but the WHO thinks they care. It is an interesting propaganda campaign that is being exposed in real time. James Corbett concludes that there will be more things to come once any new vaccine gets rolled out, so we better prepare ourselves for that.
