What You Need to Know is this action doctrine that goes along with the narrative machine: distrust, then verify. The narrative machine tries to spoon-feed us information that makes us think about politics in a certain way. It’s important to distrust the information that they give us, and then verify them to see if they are true. This is especially true in the recent case of Israel supposedly bombing a hospital, when in reality a Hamas rocket fell on a parking lot outside of a hospital. The media spins things up to serve the narrative machine, so don’t forget to distrust then verify!

It’s time to cut off the billions of dollars of research grants being sent to leftists in college institutions.
