Nothing important gets into the corporate media unless
officially created, sanctioned, approved or leaked on purpose.
I cite two recent examples of media manipulation, omission
The NSA domestic spying story: Spying has been
standard operating procedure by the US government for decades against its own
citizens -- the story was held by the New York Times before the 2004 elections but was released in December 2005!
Certainly not to inform
the unwitting and manipulated public! The New York Times publisher was at the
White House discussing this story prior to its release, raising suspicions
about the motivation. The ensuing (staged with the usual talking points)
controversy favored increasing the president's powers ‘in time of war’ and even
a censure (slap on the wrist) from Sen. Russ Feingold had no traction because
of the spineless Democratic members. So, what was the point? To further
condition Americans to the idea that spying on them was to protect them from
terrorists and that giving up liberty for security was an acceptable sacrifice.
The lopsided Judicial Committee (10 Republicans and. 8 Democrats -- why even
bother?) had hearings (dog and pony shows) to reinforce the idea of the war
powers of the president. Manipulation of public perception seemed to be the
Spying & the Internet: The Internet -- originally
created by the US government spook lab DARPA -- may soon be controlled (and
charging tolls) by the large media and cable corporations with limited content
and access, threatening the last bastion of real free speech. Technology used
by the US government is at least several generations ahead of commercial
technology available in the market. It is rumored that all new monitors have
micro cameras imbedded that can remotely watch you whether or not the computer
is on unless the power is shut off. However, in tandem with corporate assaults
against the Internet is the Pentagon’s view of the Internet (free speech) being
as dangerous as an ‘enemy’s weapon system’ as stated in their declassified
report ‘The Information’s Operation Roadmap.'
See the Center for Digital Democracy for more information on
what our so-called ‘representatives’ are being lobbied (bribed) to legislate
(currently being debated) against Network Neutrality (the Open Internet) -- all
for money and silencing dissent.
The second story was about DPW (Dubai Ports), while
generating much media bread and circus critical pieces of information were
omitted. All media outlets ignored the globalization process that is and has
been orchestrated and deliberate and not the ‘natural process’ as Council on Foreign
Relations (CFR) Neocon/Globalist Thomas 'Flat Word' Friedman of the New York
Times would have us believe. Focusing on the ‘security issues’ -- the circus
included the usual suspects and ‘experts’ from the CFR (now out of the closet)
and think tanks, etc., while none strayed from the ‘security’ talking points.
Little attention was given the fact that America has been virtually sold out
from under our feet by our so-called leaders.
The centerpiece of this story is the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) --
the group that vets and reviews all foreign investments. The corporate media
(and liberal media) across the board repeatedly told us that CFIUS was a secret
body that informed cabinet members of
pending deals -- well it turns out that the members are not only cabinet
members but Bush insiders. What an egregious omission!
Patrick Wood’s August Review tells us that the CFIUS
committee membership is hardly made up of second-rate government staffers. Its
12 members include:
John W. Snow, Secretary of the Treasury, Chairman
John Marburger, Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy
Stephen Hadley, National Security Advisor
Stephen Friedman, Assistant to the President for Economic Policy (TC)
Michael Chertoff, Secretary of Homeland Security
Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State
Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense (CFR)
Carlos M. Gutierrez, Secretary of Commerce
Alberto Gonzales, U.S. Attorney General
Joshua Bolten, White House Chief of Staff
Rob Portman, U.S. Trade Representative
N. Gregory Mankiw, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers
On April 3, Rep. Jim Kolbe (R) addressed the Carnegie
Endowment for International Peace (a Globalist think tank and Bilderberg
member) -- more like singing to the choir -- about national security and foreign
investments. Kolbe referred to CFIUS as a group that is secretive but is
concerned about national security. His pep talk was about the positive
attributes of globalization -- allowing foreigners to ‘invest’ in America
because it made us friends in the world.
As you can see from the CFIUS members list -- all are Bush
insiders and cabinet members. Omissions and Lies are reinforced throughout the
information pipeline -- talking points and scripts replace the truth. Of 1,500
deals passed through CFIUS during the Bush reign only one has been rejected! In
fact, small local newspaper recently reported, "President Bush has
approved the takeover by a Dubai-owned company of American plants that make
parts for jets and tanks after a review that seems to have satisfied lawmakers
who helped block an earlier Dubai deal." The AP report also said,
"Initial reaction from Capitol Hill was favorable." (Which
Specifically, the Dubai company takes over control of at
least nine factories, including military production facilities in Connecticut
and Georgia. Dubai settled the deal for $1.2 billion. The corporate media had
not reported any of these details to most Americans. Selling our national
security interests to the Arabs seems rather risky, don’t you think?
So the media lies, omits and ignores important information
if it conflicts with the ‘official’ story, message or goals. Any challenges to
power that the media pose are usually safe or intended to suppress further
scrutiny of an issue. Disinformation and outright propaganda is disseminated
along with credible pieces of information to facilitate redirection or
neutralization of inquiries.
As Robert Fisk, a seasoned and honest journalist covering
the Middle East, recently stated that stories written with ‘officials say,' or
‘officials confirmed’ have become commonplace in the corporate media. It
reflects not only journalistic laziness, but is used to condition Americans to
blindly accept ‘official’ sources. He stated that he no longer consumes any
corporate media -- print or TV. I suggest the same -- turn off your TV and stop
buying the New York Times -- it’s all lies. Occasionally I tune in to see what
they are reporting as ‘news,’ but try to save your mind and use your
discrimination in processing their stories and their propaganda techniques --
once the code is cracked you are free to see through their smoke and mirrors.
Gatekeepers -- the
So-Called Liberal Media Also Cover for the Elites
The corporate media and the so-called liberal pundits (the
gatekeepers) both continue their perennial charade of framing all debate between the Democratic and Republican orbits.
Typical of the liberal tack, Robert Dreyfuss, a gatekeeper at Mother Jones, in
a C-SPAN interview threw in discussion about progressives (not as a separate entity, but as parts of the duopoly) needing to concentrate on
grassroots efforts to make changes. They know full well that most Americans
have neither the will nor all the information -- which leads them into dead ends -- as all gatekeepers like Amy Goodman,
Michael Moore, Al Franken, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart , Noam Chomsky and
publications like the Nation, The Progressive, Mother Jones, etc., are intended
to do. This is gatekeeping at the margins.
Gatekeeper Jon Stewart and his Daily Show is an example of the
allowable ‘mainstream’ dissent with guests like Sen. John Kerry (remember his
Democratic Convention ‘free speech zones’?), Sen. John McCain, Sen. Joe
Lieberman, the genocidal war criminal Henry Kissinger, Sen. Edward Kennedy (his
bill adding another 350,000 H1B visas), without asking them the right or tough
questions . . . framing all the dialogue, again, in the context of Democrat vs.
Republican -- the two headed hydra. Stewart buys into and advocates the
‘official’ 9/11 lie, the phony War on Terror, and the illegal wars on
Afghanistan and Iraq -- “now that we are there . . ." His pointless
Bush-bashing detracts from having to address the elites who are behind the
curtain really running the show (and providing his paycheck) or having to
address the war crimes committed by Bush and Cheney. Stewart, like other
gatekeepers, doesn’t stray far from the official mythologies peddled by Uncle
Sam and cleverly focuses on ‘personalities’ and not real issues. Although
gatekeepers may provide some peripheral information (not in the corporate
media) for the citizen to ponder they are deliberately marginalized in acting
on it; the politicians and the corporate media are instrumental in blocking
real action for change. All the exits are covered -- by the occupiers.
The corporate media and the liberal gatekeepers, not
surprisingly, are funded by the same elite structures -- foundations and
corporations -- whose mission it is to protect the elite and their shadow
government that are truly in control, while they distract the public with their
mindless drone about Hollywood and sports celebrities. When the duopoly talk
about the ‘liberal media’ they omit that people like FOX (News Corp) Rupert
Murdoch -- neocon and pro-Zionist media mogul -- provide some of the most
dumbed down, decadent and degrading entertainment on TV. Murdoch recently
acquired MySpace.com -- for reasons I think may be suspect and nefarious. In
short, there are no liberal media -- they're all one big happy corporate family
fooling and dividing you. All one needs to do is to examine the cross
pollination that exists in corporate boardrooms -- like the Carlyle director
sitting on the (so called ‘liberal’) New York Times board.
Hollywood hedonism is a propaganda by-product of the media
conglomerates -- and worshiping and creating ‘stars’ has long been cultivated
as part of the cultural phenomenon -- as epitomized by absurdly hedonistic
award shows like the Oscars where the ‘stars’
kiss each others asses -- all fed to the public via the corporate media for
their distraction and fantasy.
Hollywood, as part of the elite corporate community, has
been instrumental since the beginning of moving pictures in creating propaganda
for the masses that operate under the radar as entertainment meant to distort reality and deceive the population.
Creating a confused public provides grist for the corporate media to distract
and divide people while other crimes against the people are ignored -- look
here, not there.
Distractions are created deliberately to keep us focused on
trivial things while those in power move incrementally towards enslaving us and
destroying real human values. Hollywood is an integral part of the New World
Order / Corporate Propaganda Machine that serves to undermine American values
Some CFR members from Hollywood are Michael Douglas, Richard
Dreyfuss and Warren Beatty -- what are they doing at the Pratt House? Anyway,
people are seeing through Hollywood and their deviant propaganda products --
the sleeping giant is awakening to the fraud foisted upon them.
Although the corporate media is the main gatekeeper for the
general public the liberal/progressive left
has its own circle of controlled alternative media -- much of it interspersed
with new age hype to dilute credibility. Discussions of the New World Order,
9/11 truth, the emerging police state, City of London International banking,
the privately owned Federal Reserve cartel, chemtrails and weather modification
by the military (see HAARP), and other critical issues are deliberately
avoided. A recent C-SPAN phone Q&A with Robert Dreyfus had a caller ask
about 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombing and the conversation was, as is
typical, immediately redirected by the moderator to another topic and the
caller was disconnected. That is media gatekeeping in action. Don’t ask
questions -- move along . . . never happened . . .
A recent article, “Noam Chomsky -- Controlled Asset of the
New World Order," by Daniel Abrahamson, confirmed my suspicions and
disappointment about the ‘master of dissent’ as I have often wondered why his
view of the 9/11 official story and other matters of importance diverged. How
can one maintain employment by MIT for decades, a giant government contractor
and still rant on about US Imperialism?
Abrahamson shares that while Chomsky blames ‘America’ and
‘corporations,’ he fails to acknowledge the hidden Globalist over class which
pulls the strings, using the US as an engine of creation and destruction -- and
after pinning the world's ills on American imperialism, he offers the solution
of world government under the UN. Chomsky
calls the CFR, Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg Groups nothing organizations.
Chomsky’s hero status is amplified by left gatekeeper
publications like Z Magazine, The Nation, The Progressive and Democracy Now! --
all receive funding from Globalist-front groups like the Rockefeller, Carnegie
and MacArthur Foundations.
The AM (Alternate Media): If you are reading this it is
neither in the New York Times’ op-ed section nor in The Nation. As in the
corporate media and the so called liberal alternative media, the AM has
writers, researchers and content that are not equal and requires sorting out by
the reader. Like pulling on a thread it leads you somewhere and it is up to
each of us to hone our researching skills to add to our database of useful
information already acquired and to use our precious time recognizing what is
useful in further developing our understanding. Recognize the difference
between a rant and good research.
Educated in cultural anthropology, I have been researching
for several years now and use AM for my checks against corporate media and alternative
media sources, and for new sources of information. Multiple sources are needed
to verify conclusions and I have tried to present an informative article based
on these practices. I have a list (provided later) of core sites I frequent;
there are writers/journalists I look for who have high standards for research
and analysis -- with new additions as my research widens. It is up to each of
us to be Information Guerillas and to
seek out the truth no matter what horrors and atrocities we discover -- to be
free is to seek the truth no matter where it leads. And as I attempted to do
here -- share your knowledge with others and encourage dialogue and discovery.
Thus far, we have shown that both Democrats and Republicans
are essentially the same, both working for the same masters. We have also
pointed out that not all media are equal and the corporate media and liberal
gatekeepers are financed by the same corporations and foundations and
controlled by the CIA. At the top of this power pyramid is the New World Order
cabal with their shadow governments. Alternate Media is the last bastion of
free speech and Internet 2 is soon coming -- print or save your important
Now for the really ugly and nasty stuff . . .
for the New World Order
Chemtrails. . . . In
the Skies, but not in the News . . .
Having observed CTs (chemtrails) for some time I am
convinced that our leaders (and their masters) would not hesitate killing 3,000
citizens if it served their purpose, which, undoubtedly, 9/11 has. With two
illegal wars and more already in the early stages, the construction of a police
state (the soft cage) and 800 detention centers (and Halliburton building
more), the bipartisan passage of the un-PATRIOT Act (It is us they fear, not the terrorists) which abrogates the Constitution
and the creation of the phony War on Terror (renamed the Long War), etc., it is
clear that they have Americans targeted for population reduction and
Chemtrails have been sprayed across America by the military
and contractors almost daily since at least 1998 -- begun by Democrat Bill
Clinton. Chemtrails include aluminum and barium oxides, the very toxic
pesticide ethylene bromide and raw jet fuel occasionally mixed with bio germ
toxic cocktails like pseudomonas fluorescens and mycoplasma.
Amy Worthington’s “Chemtrails: Delivery System for Dept. of
Death’s Toxic Cocktails” details some of the biochemical warfare ‘experiments’
the military has conducted on the American people in the last 50 years. The
sharp increase of respiratory illnesses and various cancers indicates they are
succeeding at killing many thousands with compromised immune systems and
weakening others exposed to CTs.
Ken Welch concludes in his “Chemtrails -- Predictions”
written earlier this year that this is a two-step process with Chemtrails
spraying first and then ‘for the second part, the biological culmination, is
the intentional release of the1918 Spanish Influenza, or some minor but
According to Michael Chertoff’s (DHS) announcement on March
9, the same day the un-PATRIOT Act was renewed, the avian flu is a mere months
away from reaching the US. Dr. Len Horowitz tells us in his article, “Avian Flu
Fright: Politically Timed for Global Iatrogenocide” that ‘if the avian flu
becomes more than a threatened epidemic, it will have done so by political and
economic design,’ adding that this would also serve depopulation objectives. These
merchants of death in the military-industrial-academic/research complex see
biochemical warfare and weather modification (experimenting and creating
‘natural’ disasters has been going on for decades) as ‘conflicts short of war’
economic substitutes for standard militarization. Both Dr. Horowitz and Jerry
AIDS Virus: Made in the USA?” Online Journal, 10/26/05) explain that AIDS
was created in a military lab and was deliberately transmitted to Africa and
India via smallpox vaccines by the WHO -- a Rockefeller funded organization.
The Ebola virus, the swine flu, Lyme disease, West Niles virus, SARS and other bioengineered
weapons made by the US have been used as ‘test runs’ before the ‘Big One,' now
being propagandized by the leaders and the corporate media, is possibly
A weakened and compromised population offers little
resistance to the authorities.
The current mumps (a normally mild virus) outbreak in the
Midwest was called a useful ‘drill’ by a CDC spokesperson. According to
Patricia Doyle, PhD, the virus has mutated away from that which the vaccine
covers, rendering it useless. Is this another test?
If this is enough to scare you, consider that the 1918
Spanish Flu (H5N1) has been recreated (what madness!!) and is in the labs of
the CDC and the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology! No doubt the elites will
have their vaccines close at hand when and if the Big One is unleashed.
Today, the Rockefeller family, its foundation, the UN and
WHO remain at the forefront of administering ‘population programs’ designed to
reduce world populations to more ‘manageable’ levels. The David Rockefeller
directed Council of Foreign Relations periodical Foreign Affairs has advertised
targeting the US for 50 percent reduction.
A note on Chertoff: The dual (US/Israeli) citizen has two
deputies working in Homeland Security -- ex-KGB General Yevgeni Primakov and
ex-STASI (East German intelligence) Markus Wolfe -- both declared terrorists by
the US in the 1990s. Why would DHS have these kinds of folks working in
America? This is eerily similar to the CIA’s Operation Paperclip where hundreds
if not thousands of Nazi scientists were brought to the US after World War II to
expand torture, mind control and biowarfare techniques for the CIA.
Incidentally, almost a hundred microbiologists have been murdered or committed
‘suicide’ in the last few years -- a coincidence? For more on Chertoff visit Newswithviews.com
Patrick Briley's extensive and enlightening expose. This is the guy protecting you!
President Bush has already warned us that in the event of an
avian flu pandemic people would be quarantined (martial law) and forced to take
vaccinations (we know can’t possibly work). The cowardly and complicit Congress
has budgeted $8 billion for Tamiflu made by Roche (formerly I.G. Farben, a Nazi
era company supported by and benefiting the Rockefellers, Harriman’s and the
Bushes before, during and after WW II), which Dr Horowitz warns us could be the
‘flu vaccine’ that will precisely deliver this pandemic to the world to affect
Vaccinations are usually harmful -- such an example is the
Lyme disease vaccine that crippled 750,000 people within months of its release
and subsequent recall by the FDA. The anthrax vaccine has had similar results
with the forced vaccinations of military personnel, and much of the
population’s outright rejection and refusal to take it including health care
first responders. Dr. Horowitz states in his article that “a growing body of
scientific evidence strongly suggests vaccines are largely responsible for
increasing cases of autism and other learning disabilities, chronic fatigue,
fibromyalgia, Lupus, MS, ALS, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, hay fever,
allergies, chronic draining ear infections, type 1 autoimmune diabetes, and
many, many more pandemics.
A note on martial law: One million foreign troops are
alleged to be 'training' at various locations on US soil. Once
martial law goes into effect they will be used to detain and control the
population as part of the 'peacekeeper force' of the UN. (This is the real
mission of FEMA -- population control -- not disaster relief, see educate-yourself.com)
Over the years white UN vehicles have been noticed being shipped by rail in
many parts of the country. Eight hundred detention centers are estimated to
exist in America with base closings becoming new centers; along with large
vacated industrial parks being converted into same. Halliburton just received a
$385 million contract to build more detention centers 'rapidly' for 'new
Beginning in the 1950s, underground cities for the elites
and 'government officials' have been created and increased in the 1990s under
Clinton, bringing the completely self-sustaining underground cities to about
135. There is protection for the elites but not for American citizens. What are
they expecting or planning?
These are not things that our elected officials share with
us or have the authority to do without our permission; yet they do whatever
they want under the guise of 'National Security' and other phony pretexts. This
is the shadow government at work.
Next: In Part 3 we will
continue to discuss the destruction of America by the New World Order cabal,
the powers behind the curtain.
