Who Controls the (Alternate) “Reality” in America?

Who’s really got the power in America? Most people are living in an alternate reality created by those with the biggest platforms.

Individual “reality” is defined by what people believe to be true more than what actually exists. A firmly held opinion can create such a vast cognitive dissonance that many people can actually witness something that challenges their belief and still deny that they could be incorrect.

This sounds like the biggest conspiracy theory ever, but if you are here reading this, you probably at least suspect that there are manipulations at play in nearly everything we view or read. There are just a few hundred people who control the media, entertainment, and the internet, and unless we are completely unplugged, we are lambasted with their versions of reality relentlessly every day.

Let’s talk about how opinions are really formed and who has the influence to sway the people of America. No matter how well-informed a person tries to be, the truth can be hard to come by when bias is presented from so many primary sources.

The Places People Get Their News and Information

According to the Pew Research Group, people get their information from the following sources:

This means that those with the power to influence are the people who pull the strings of network news, those in entertainment, those who make the rules of major social media platforms, and those with the biggest websites. Radio and print newspapers have little influence these days, and for that reason, most major print newspapers also have online outlets.

Notice also how people of varying age groups rely more strongly on different sources for their information.

Network News

Who remembers sitting at the table or just after dinner, being bored to tears as a little kid while your parents were glued to the evening news?  I remember my dad wanted to watch the news from three sources because he wanted more than one opinion. I get it now, but at the time, it felt like “the news” would never be over. I usually ended up playing with my Barbies or reading a book.

It seems that times haven’t changed much, if the Pew survey cited above is to be believed, and it appears that the older people are, the more likely they are to watch the news on TV.

But here’s the catch.

Although there are thousands of news stations across the country, nearly all of them are owned by six corporations. In the 80s, the stations were dispersed through about 50 different companies – not a lot but a far more diverse sampling than you have now that your news is filtered through the lenses of billionaire corporations.

So, basically, everything we hear on the news is controlled by these six companies:

  • Time Warner
  • Walt Disney
  • News Corp.
  • Viacom
  • CBS Corporation
  • NBC Universal

Whatever their opinions are, those are the biases from which your news will be presented.

But it goes even deeper than just news because these corporations also control the entertainment industry. And what better way to control the masses than through propagandized drama in which the abnormal is normalized, and agendas are insidiously promoted without the knowledge of an unaware watcher?

Here is a glimpse at the networks owned by these corporations.

As you can see, nearly anything you watch on any channel is influenced by a handful of people – those who run these major corporations. If they want to push an agenda, you can rest assured that agenda will be present on each of their outlets in some form.

The Rulers of the Internet

People under 50 get more of their news and information from the web than any other source these days.

One hundred websites get the majority of the traffic on the internet, and that traffic is massive. The people behind these websites are major influences in the reality perceived by Americans.

Think about this:

Google gets 28 billion visits per month. That means when you look something up on Google, you are provided with the answer Google wants you to have, which may or may not be the actual answer.

YouTube follows quickly behind with 20.5 billion visits. (source) I’m sure by now you have heard that YouTube has taken advertising privileges away from a lot of videographers whose points of view are contrary to the agenda they wish to promote. They’re saying that the content is not “advertiser friendly” – and obviously, this discourages people who dedicate their days to advancing the truth from doing so. They too must make a living, and video editing is a time-consuming process. One well-done 10-minute video can take 8 hours to produce.

These are the 100 websites that provide the “reality” for the majority of the people who rely on the internet for their news, as per Alexa.com’s traffic reporting system.

Social Media

You may have noticed in the infographic above that a massive amount of traffic goes to social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.

Both of those networks are notorious for censoring points of view that are not part of a liberal outlook. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably heard about Twitter permanently banning a bunch of popular Alt-Right people, most infamously, Milo Yiannopolis for his perspective.

Now, personally, I’m not a fan of the Alt-Right viewpoint. It seems like they’re presenting meanness as “truth” when they could just as easily state true things without being jerks about it. But that is beside the point. If these people are going to be banned for their unsavory ways of communicating, why does Twitter allow things like #RapeMelania to trend? Why does Twitter allow actual threats against the President? If you’re going to start banning offensiveness, shouldn’t it be across the board?

Then there’s Facebook, who has actually been busted running social experiments on its users by attempting to alter people’s moods with what they show in their timelines. But it doesn’t stop there. Nearly every blogger I know who works in the alternative news genre has been in Facebook jail at least once for presenting an unpopular opinion. I personally got warnings when I posted this article on my page – the article was taken down dozens of times and reported as “hate speech” when the “hate” it reported on was certainly not MY hatred.

Of course, when you sign up to use any of these social media networks, you agree to their terms and conditions. They’re businesses and are under no obligation to be truthful or have integrity. Go ahead and use them – I do because they are helpful to my business – but do so fully aware that what you see presented there reflects the opinions of the management and not actual reality.

So how do we get the truth?

There really aren’t any unbiased sources out there. Having worked as an alternative journalist, I can tell you honestly that no matter how hard you try to be unbiased, your personal feelings sneak in, at least a little bit. Maybe it’s with the background information you provide to support your story because you can see the direction what you are reporting on is going. Maybe it is with a little bit of snarky commentary or a pithy headline.

Because of this, many people pick the reality in which they want to live. Maybe they select ultra-conservative websites that reflect their religious beliefs. Perhaps they opt for anti-establishment outlets that gleefully point out in a non-partisan fashion that all of the politicians are sell-outs. For others, they want “news” that supports their warm, fuzzy liberal view of the world.

It’s pretty easy to get manipulated through the subliminal messages and the predictive programming, but some folks seem to be immune. You really want to be one of those people, and if you aren’t, you can get there.

I wrote about this previously:

What if some people are genetically more susceptible than others? What if some of us are immune to this constant bombardment of images, words, and ideas that most people seem to buy into without question?

Could this be the difference between the vast majority of the people and those of us are that are awake and aware? Are we just mutants? Is this why I can explain this stuff until I lose my voice and just get a blank stare from people who think I am the crazy one?

The vast majority of people in the United States are completely accepting of the official message:

  • They believe that the government will be there to save them in all circumstances.
  • They don’t question or inquire. They simply accept what they are told.
  • They don’t share our fears that something big is on the horizon.
  • They exist in a bubble and don’t look at the bigger picture.
  • They refuse to prepare for bad things because they honestly don’t believe it’s possible that those things will happen.

Most people like us (those who are aware, the self-sufficient minority) watch less TV than the masses. Some of us watch no TV at all. I watch a few shows on Netflix or Amazon Prime, but we don’t have cable TV with its commercials and *cough* news. We have other things to do, things that will help us when there are soldiers on the streets “for our own protection.” Things that will help our kids survive when the store shelves are empty and the majority relies on government rations to live (if they behave well enough to get one that is, and behave they will because hunger is a massive motivator to do as you’re told.)

Even if you have a tendency to be mind-controlled, it’s possible to snap out of it. I wasn’t always the tinfoil-clad blogger you see before you today. When I was in my early 20s, I truly did believe that the government agencies like the EPA and the FDA were looking out for our best interests, that food or medicine wouldn’t be sold if it was harmful, and that schools truly were in the business of educating children.  Most of us have to shake off our early training at the hands of the education system and the television.

And sort of like in the movie, The Matrix, if you can get someone to swallow the red pill, they become a lot less willing to believe whatever they’re fed.

Subliminal messaging can change people’s views, can change the way they think, can change what they want to eat, what car they want to buy, maybe even how they vote. All you need is the cash to get your message out there and buy a few split seconds of screen time.

It can sow the seeds that make acceptance of abnormal and dangerous situations easier. It can teach people not to question and to be good little sheep.

Sitting for hours in front of the television mindlessly watching the drivel produced by companies who call it “entertainment” is brainwashing people and turning them into idiots, making the best current day example of predictive programming the movie Idiocracy.

All you have to do is look around and you’ll see that it’s here.

What if you don’t want to live in an alternate reality created by the media?

First of all, this doesn’t even touch on other influences like the ridiculous fear culture perpetuated in our schools or the Marxist indoctrination in our colleges and universities, where they teach you that gender isn’t a real thing and you get to pick whenever you want. There are many more players in the alternate reality game than just the media, but you have to start somewhere.

My advice for those who don’t want to live in an alternate reality:

  • Turn off the TV.
  • Vet your sources.
  • Try to get several points of view – even the ones you don’t like. The truth lies somewhere in between.
  • Look out for talking points that are used ad infinitum like “deep state” or “with an abundance of caution”  or “the Russians.” The things you hear repeated over and over are repeated for a reason – to brainwash you.

In the famous words of Fox Mulder, “The truth is out there.” You just have to seek it diligently.

The Loony Professor and the Desperation of the State-Controlled Media (VIDEO)

 The Loony Professor and the Desperation of the State-Controlled Media (VIDEO) | cultural-media-1024x768 | Mainstream Media Multimedia Propaganda US News

“Some people are asking which news sources I trust, and all I can say is that I read/watch/listen very widely, from mainstream, corporate owned sources (The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes) as well as The Atlantic, National Public Radio, and various local and alternative sources with different political perspectives.” –Melissa Zimdars

The mainstream media has been circulating a viral list of so-called “fake news” websites – and the list includes established news sites like TheSonsofLibertyRadio.com, Breitbart, Red State, the Daily Wire, Project Veritas and many other credible sources – but what we found was a leftist (criminal-minded), President bashing assistant professor in Massachusetts who is behind the effort to target and discredit legitimate news/media organizations (John 8:44).

For the record, it is called libel, and it is illegal.

Merrimack College Assistant Professor Melissa Zimdars, a 30-something, self-identified feminist and activist, who has expressed great dislike for the new President and Vice President created the list.

Zimdars published and circulated a list of “fake, false, or regularly misleading websites that are shared on Facebook and social media.” She said she began writing the list because she didn’t approve of the sources her students were citing.

In many cases, she offers no explanation for why the news organizations were included on the list.

The media has a 21% approval rating and the state-controlled narrative is being called out for their defamation, libel, slander and lies on a continual basis.

Yet, the mainstream media outlets, in hopes of propping up yet more lies, such as the Los Angeles Times, circulated this list.  The Times headlined its story, “Want to keep fake news out of your newsfeed? College professor creates list of sites to avoid.”  And of course, the Times offered no details concerning Zimdars’ lack of qualifications or background.

Propagandists organizations such as CNN, the Washington PostBoston GlobeNew York MagazineUSA TodayBusiness Insider, the Austin American-Statesman, the Dallas Morning News and others spread the list like gospel and cited it in their reports.

As a matter of fact, Zimdars has not responded for clarification on her expertise or criteria for deciding which news sources to include on her list.

However, when Merrimack Vice President of Communications Jim Chiavelli was asked, he replied, “Thanks for your question to the president about professor Zimdars’ pedagogy. The college has no comment for this story.”

In response to the list, PJ Media’s Stephen Kruiser wrote, “It’s no surprise that a college professor compiled this list; what’s galling is that the Los Angeles Times ‘reported’ on it without mentioning that it’s complete garbage.”

Of course, it is!  They all know that it is nothing but garbage, but this is what they do to continue to prop up the establishment, with which America is fed up.

In addition to her new job as an assistant professor, Zimdars is also a columnist and contributor for Little Village Magazine – a lawless-leaning magazine that says it’s focused on issues such as “racial justice,” “gender equity,” “critical culture,” “economic and labor justice” and “environmental sustainability.”

Zimdars’ social-media accounts are protected from public view, leading tweeter Vanessa Beeley to note that Zimdars “can’t take the heat. Named ‘fake media’ & then protected all her own media sites.”

But Newsbusters found tweets from Zimdars harshly criticizing President-elect and Vice-President-elect during the vice-presidential debate in October.

“Undocumented workers contribute more to this country (beyond taxes) than Drumpf ever has or ever will,” she tweeted on Oct. 4.

The same day, she tweeted to Pence that Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” comment does not equal “Trump’s constant sexist, racist, homophobic, and xenophobic comments.”

The little professor was asked what media resources she read and trusted.

“Some people are asking which news sources I trust, and all I can say is that I read/watch/listen very widely, from mainstream, corporate owned sources (The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes) as well as The Atlantic, National Public Radio, and various local and alternative sources with different political perspectives.” –Melissa Zimdars

Let’s pull the curtain back on the media so you can see who is doing the reporting.

In 1917, Rep. Oscar Callaway entered a disturbing statement into the congressional record:

J.P. Morgan, a banker and a steel tycoon, hired 12 high-ranking news managers and editors, and asked them to determine the most influential newspapers in America. He wanted to control the policy of the daily press of the United States (that policy being whatever they wanted it to be). The 12 found that it was only necessary to purchase 25 of the greatest newspapers. An agreement was reached, the policy of the papers was bought, and an editor of their choice was placed at each paper to ensure that all published information was in keeping of the new policy. (Again, keep in mind it was their policy.)

In a nutshell, what are they doing? The news media is being controlled by very few people throughout major networks in the United States and worldwide. There are those who are trying to rearrange reality to become the reality they want you to believe.

Robert Lichter and Stanley Rothman, two media scholars, interviewed 240 news anchors, editors and news writers, and here’s what they found:

  1. 47 percent of those who report the news in this country believe that adultery is OK.
  2. 76 percent of those who report the news see nothing wrong with homosexuality.
  3. 90 percent of those who write your papers in this country believe there is nothing wrong with aborting a baby.
  4. 86 percent of those who write your paper in this country seldom or never attend church.

“The New York Times is deliberately pitched to the liberal point of view.” -Herman Dismore Foreign editor of the NY Times from 1950 to 1960

“Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.” Richard Salant (1914-1933) Former President of CBS News

“We are going to impose our agenda on the coverage by dealing with issues and subjects that we choose to deal with.” Richard M. Cohen, Senior Producer of CBS Political News

Former CNN journalist Amber Lyon said that she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories adverse to the Obama administration, and construct stories in specific manners while working for the left-wing network.

CNN is paid by foreign and the US government for reporting on some events, and not reporting on others. The Obama Administration pays for CNN content.

“The entire mainstream media is totally fake!”

“Taught to lie, to betray the people and not to tell the truth to the public.”

“The CIA gets control over all of the majority of journalists.”  Dr. Udo Ulfkotte German Editor, Journalist

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” –William Casey CIA Director

Truth be told, these people simply blurted out their fears when declaring “Fake News” media outlets were really those who were exposing their “Fake News” outlets for what they are (Luke 12:2). They hate the truth (Psalm 94:16).

Harvard’s Fake Guide to Fake News Sites

Harvard’s Fake Guide to Fake News Sites | fake-news | Mainstream Media Propaganda Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News

Is this what parents pay $63,000 annually for tuition, room, board and fees – so their children can be ill-served and ill-taught?

Following the 2014 Obama administration Kiev coup, replacing democracy with fascist dictatorship, Harvard expressed concern about nonexistent “Russian aggression.” Some faculty members called for US military intervention.

Not a word about US-supported putschists seizing power. Nothing about the most brazen European coup since Mussolini’s 1922 march on Rome.

No explanation about a scheme orchestrated in Washington. Silence about a major crisis in Europe’s heartland still ongoing. Trump inherited Obama’s mess, so far not indicating clearly where he stands on Ukraine.

Harvard is at it again. It’s University Library published a fake guide to “fake news, misinformation, and propaganda.”

It recommends using FactCheck.org, Politifact, Snopes.com, Washington Post Fact Checker, and other self-styled fact-checkers, biased against truth-telling on all major issues, acting as censors, trashing reliable alternative sources of news, information and analysis.

It endorses sanitized content acceptable to America’s deep state, abandoning support for speech, media and academic freedoms.

It recommended “tips for analyzing news sources.” Ignore them. Common sense is the best guide, along with distrusting and avoiding media scoundrels. They’re paid to lie, deceive and feature fake news – what powerful interests want people to know, what’s most important suppressed.

Harvard published a list of hundreds of sites it calls “bias(ed),” “conspira(torial),” “unreliable,” “fake,” and otherwise mislabeled.

Some I’m familiar with are reliable sources, (polar opposite media scoundrels paid to lie), including:

How CDC Uses False Fears to Promote Vaccine Uptake

How CDC Uses False Fears to Promote Vaccine Uptake | vaccine | General Health Medical & Health Propaganda Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Special Interests Vaccines

Five years ago, political lobbyist Jack Abramoff shocked the nation when, in a 60-Minute Report, he revealed just how corrupt the U.S. political system really is. As it turns out, it’s actually worse than most critical outsiders could have imagined.

Now, the downfall of yet another high-powered corporate lobbyist is shedding light on tactics used to promote drug industry interests.

Other recent news reveals how the CDC uses scare tactics to incentivize people into getting an annual flu shot — despite studies repeatedly showing that flu shots have been from zero to less than 50 percent effective in preventing type A or B influenza over the past decade.1

For this flu season, the CDC estimates the vaccine has failed about 60 percent of the time to prevent infection with the most prevalent A strain circulating this year.2

The Rise and Fall of a Roche VP

In “The Rise and Fall of a K Street Renegade,” published in The Wall Street Journal,3 Brody Mullins details the suspected wrongdoings of Evan Morris, who at age 27 became a top Washington lobbyist for Roche Holdings AG, one of the largest drug companies in the world.

In July, 2015, he came under federal investigation, suspected of embezzling millions of company dollars through various schemes. Part of Morris’ genius was his ability to capitalize on and shape public sentiment through the use of media, advertising, opinion polls, focus groups and the creation of front groups.

According to Mullins, “He sponsored nonprofits that engaged in letter-writing campaigns and organized patient groups that demanded Medicare reimbursement for his firm’s drugs.”

When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considered banning the cancer drug Avastin, Morris created the non-profit group, Patient Care Action Network. Morris recruited doctors and patients who then did Morris’ work for him, urging their congressional representatives to oppose the FDA.

How Morris Turned Tamiflu Into a Blockbuster Drug

In the article, Mullins also reveals how Morris made Roche’s influenza drug Tamiflu into a massive blockbuster by seeding and feeding public fear during the 2005 avian flu outbreak:

“Roche produced the leading treatment, a pill called Tamiflu. Sensing opportunity, Mr. Morris adopted an emerging lobbying tactic: build support among a lawmaker’s constituents to supplement the traditional glad-handing of elected officials with dinners and campaign donations.

Mr. Morris contracted consultants who promoted news stories that stoked fears about an avian-flu outbreak. The goal was to sell more Tamiflu.

In October 2005, 32 Democratic senators wrote a letter to President George W. Bush expressing their ‘grave concern that the nation is dangerously unprepared for the serious threat of avian influenza.’

Within weeks, Mr. Bush created an emergency stockpile of avian flu treatments that eventually included more than $1 billion worth of Tamiflu pills. His administration offered subsidies that led to millions of dollars of additional Tamiflu sales to state governments.”

Reported Flu Deaths — Another Giant PR Sham

While we’re on the topic of fearmongering to boost corporate profits, a paper4 published in the BMJ in 2005 by Peter Doshi deserves a second look. In it, Doshi argues U.S. flu death figures are based more on PR mandates than actual science.

“U.S. data on influenza deaths are a mess,” he writes. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledges a difference between flu death and flu associated death yet uses the terms interchangeably.

Additionally, there are significant statistical incompatibilities between official estimates and national vital statistics data. Compounding these problems is a marketing of fear…”

According to the CDC, about 36,000 Americans die from influenza each year. This statistic is reiterated by most mainstream media sources and government health officials, thereby impressing you with the suggestion that if you or someone you care about gets influenza, you are likely to die from it.

The answer, they say, is to make sure you get vaccinated at the onset of flu season each and every year.

Rarely does anyone question this 36,000-annual flu death number. But everyone really should. As noted by Doshi, the “CDC states that the historic 1968-9 “Hong Kong flu” pandemic killed 34,000 Americans. At the same time, CDC claims 36,000 Americans annually die from flu. What is going on?”

Indeed, is the annual death toll from influenza really GREATER than the well documented 1968-69 influenza pandemic? The answer is no, and Doshi goes on to reveal a number of statistical tricks used to artificially inflate influenza death numbers.

How Influenza Death Numbers Are Inflated

For starters, the CDC bundles influenza and pneumonia deaths together, even though influenza is by far not the sole cause of pneumonia. To quote Doshi:

“David Rosenthal, director of Harvard University Health Services, said, ‘People don’t necessarily die, per se, of the [flu] virus … What they die of is a secondary pneumonia. So many of these pneumonias are not viral pneumonias but secondary [pneumonias].’

But … Rosenthal agreed that the flu/pneumonia relationship was not unique. For instance, a recent study5… found that stomach acid suppressing drugs are associated with a higher risk of community acquired pneumonia, but such drugs and pneumonia are not compiled as a single statistic.”

In other words, anyone dying from pneumonia — whether contracted as a result of influenza infection, post-surgical complication, the side effect of acid blocker use or any other reason — end up being reported as a “flu death.” When you separate out pneumonia deaths, you end up with a very different picture of influenza mortality:

“[A]ccording to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001 — 61,777 of which were attributed to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was flu virus positively identified.

Between 1979 and 2002, NCHS data show an average 1,348 flu deaths per year (range 257 to 3006),” Doshi writes, adding:

“The NCHS data would be compatible with CDC mortality estimates if about half of the deaths classed by the NCHS as pneumonia were actually flu initiated secondary pneumonias.

But the NCHS criteria indicate otherwise: ‘Cause-of-death statistics are based solely on the underlying cause of death… defined by WHO as `the disease or injury which initiated the train of events leading directly to death.’”

This Year Only 10 Percent of Flu-Like Illnesses Caused by Influenza A or B

It’s also worth noting that only 10 to 30 percent of flu-like respiratory illnesses at any point in a given flu season are actually caused by influenza type A or B,6 which is what the flu shot is supposed to prevent.

As Barbara Loe Fisher at the National Vaccine Information Center points out, “According to a recently released CDC report, in this 2016-2017 flu season the odds are only about one in 10 that flu like illness symptoms are, in fact, caused by type A or B influenza.

Between October and February 2017, out of nearly 393,000 respiratory illness lab specimens tested in the U.S., only about 38,000 cases – or 10 percent – were positive for type A or B influenza.”7

High Vaccine Failure Rate Plus Low Influenza Incidence Does Not Support Annual Flu Shot Policy

There are more than 200 types of viruses that cause respiratory flu like symptoms,8 in addition to illness caused by bacteria,9 but they are not included in the influenza vaccine.

If the flu shot only works from zero to less than 50 percent of the time and most of the flu like illness in any given flu season is not caused by type A or B influenza, the scientific evidence is simply not there for the government to order every child and adult in America to get the flu shot.

It is hardly a public health calamity warranting the vaccination of hundreds of millions of people on an annual basis. Which is precisely the point. As noted by Doshi, the CDC is “working in manufacturers’ interest by conducting campaigns to increase flu vaccination.”

CDC’s ‘Recipe’ for Generating Vaccine Demand

Doshi’s 2005 paper further reveals some of the content of a slide presentation given by Glen Nowak, then-acting director of media relations at the CDC. Nowak gave the presentation at the National Influenza Vaccine Summit in 2004, co-sponsored by the CDC and the American Medical Association (AMA). In a nutshell, Nowak’s presentation focused on how to use the media to create fear and anxiety to promote vaccination and increase vaccine uptake in the U.S.

A section of his presentation titled “Getting Ready for 2004-2005: Lessons (Re-) Learned [Including the Seven-Step Recipe for Generating Interest in, and Demand for, Flu (or any other) Vaccination]” — which has since been removed from the AMAs website, where it was originally posted, but parts of which can be viewed in a recent article by J.B. Handley, co-founder of Generation Rescue,10 — included the following ingredients:11,12,13

  • Getting medical experts and public health authorities to “publicly … state concern and alarm (and predict dire outcomes) — and urge influenza vaccination”
  • Publishing media articles and reports saying “that influenza is causing severe illness and/or affecting lots of people, helping foster the perception that many people are susceptible to a bad case of influenza” and “framing of the flu season in terms that motivate behavior (e.g., as ‘very severe,’ ‘more severe than last or past years,’ ‘deadly’)”

Overall, Nowak’s point was that “heightened concern, anxiety and worry” drives demand for the influenza vaccine and other vaccines. The CDC sure does seem to be doing its part in promulgating this fearmongering. Some doctors are also playing their part and appear to follow Nowak’s “recipe” to the T.14

Hyperbole Over ‘Dangerous Anti-Vaxxers’ Grows

An offshoot of this fearmongering aimed at generating vaccine demand is the public shaming and demonization of so-called “anti-vaxxers” — most of whom are parents who have actually vaccinated their children and are simply trying to get to the bottom of why their child’s health or behavior suddenly changed following one or more of those vaccinations.

Doshi was a graduate student when he wrote the 2005 BMJ paper questioning U.S. annual influenza mortality figures. He’s now an associate editor of The British Medical Journal (BMJ). In an article published in the BMJ on February 7, 2017, Doshi addresses medical journalists who write about vaccines. Well worth reading in its entirety, it reads, in part:15

“Good journalism on this topic will require abandoning current practices of avoiding interviewing, understanding, and presenting critical voices out of fear that expressing any criticism amounts to presenting a “false balance” that will result in health scares.

It does matter if the vast majority of doctors or scientists agree on something. But medical journalists should be among the first to realize that while evidence matters, so too do the legitimate concerns of patients. And if patients have concerns, doubts, or suspicions — for example, about the safety of vaccines, this does not mean they are “anti-vaccine.”

… approaches that label anybody and everybody who raises questions about the right headedness of current vaccine policies … as “anti-vaccine” fail on several accounts … Contrary to the suggestion … that vaccines are risk free … the reality is that officially sanctioned written medical information on vaccines is … filled with information about common, uncommon, and unconfirmed but possible harms.

Medical journalists have an obligation to the truth. But journalists must also ensure that patients come first, which means a fresh approach to covering vaccines. It’s time to listen — seriously and respectfully — to patients’ concerns, not demonize them.”

Conflicts of Interest at the CDC Threaten Your Health

The fact that the CDC is in charge of not only recommending and promoting mandatory use of vaccines but also monitoring vaccine safety is a significant conflict of interest. In 2006, two members of Congress — Representatives Dave Weldon and Carolyn Maloney — tried to address the problem by introducing a bill that would give the responsibility of vaccine safety to an independent agency within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).16

“There’s an enormous inherent conflict of interest within the CDC and if we fail to move vaccine safety to a separate independent office, safety issues will remain a low priority and public confidence in vaccines will continue to erode,” Weldon said.

The bill went nowhere, and public confidence in the CDC has indeed continued to erode with each passing year. In 2011, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) issued a public comment to the National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) recommending overhaul of the U.S. vaccine safety system, including the creation of an independent vaccine safety monitoring agency modeled after the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). 17

In 2014, NVIC issued a press release renewing its two decade long call for removal of vaccine safety oversight from DHHS. NVIC co-founder and president Barbara Loe Fisher said:

“It is a conflict of interest for DHHS to be in charge of vaccine safety and also license vaccines, and take money from drug companies to fast track vaccines, and partner with drug companies to develop and share profits from vaccine sales, and make national vaccine policies that get turned into state vaccine laws, while also deciding which children will and will not get a vaccine injury compensation award. That is too much power for one federal agency.”18

The CDC has also racked up an embarrassing number of scandals in the last couple of years, with whistleblowers saying the agency is “shaped by outside parties and rogue interests” and that data destruction and fraudulent reporting has been used to hide autism links and rises in prevalence.

One of the researchers whose work was used to exonerate thimerosal’s role in autism also turned fugitive, accused of embezzling vaccine research funds. A January 19 article by JB Handley gives the details on these and several other CDC scandals.19

Recent Studies Link Vaccines to Mental/Emotional Disorders

In related news, research published on January 19, 2017, found “a significant relationship” between mercury exposure from thimerosal-containing vaccines and the subsequent risk of emotional disturbance, based on data obtained from the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) database.20

Another study21,22 published that same day in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry found some vaccines increased the risk of certain psychiatric disorders. Using information from health insurance claims, the researchers found that patients diagnosed with anorexia nervosa were more likely than controls to have received a vaccination in the previous three months.

Anorexia, obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety disorder were also associated with influenza vaccination in the past 3, 6 and 12 months. According to the authors:

“This pilot epidemiologic analysis implies that the onset of some neuropsychiatric disorders may be temporally related to prior vaccinations in a subset of individuals. These findings warrant further investigation, but do not prove a causal role of antecedent infections or vaccinations in the pathoetiology of these conditions.”

This doesn’t entirely surprise me. A long list of studies looking at aluminum adjuvants in vaccines suggest it can induce neurodegenerative changes and is associated with an array of neurotoxic and neurological adverse effects.23,24,25,26,27,28

Here, the naysayers don’t have a leg to stand on, as the FDA actually set the limit on the amount of aluminum allowed in vaccines based on the amount required to boost vaccine effectiveness. No safety studies were performed at all. The FDA simply assumed it was safe. Today, ample evidence suggests otherwise.

Vaccine Contaminants — Another Safety Hazard

Other recent research points out another potential vaccine hazard — metal debris and biological contaminants. Remarkably, the study conducted by researchers in Italy found these kinds of contaminants in every single human vaccine tested.29 According to environmental protection activist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.,30 these findings “should have profound and immediate impact on public health policies and vaccine industry procedures around the globe.”

In all, 43 samples of 30 different vaccines were tested using an environmental scanning electron microscope, and were found to contain contaminants such as:

  • Aluminum salts
  • Red blood cells of unknown origin
  • Inorganic foreign particle debris consistent with “burnt waste.” Additional analysis revealed the presence of lead, stainless steel, chromium, tungsten, nickel, iron, zirconium, hafnium, strontium, antimony and various other metals
  • Endotoxins
  • Bacterial residues

According to the study authors:

“The particles, be they isolated, aggregated or clustered, are not supposed to be there. … Our tissues perceive these foreign bodies as potential enemies. The biological reactions are expected to be fairly complicated, with macrophages that try to engulf them the way they do normally with bacteria and parasites to form a protein corona.

Unfortunately, though, the particles we found in vaccines, are not biodegradable. So, all the macrophages’ efforts will be useless, and depending on the exact chemicals involved, the particles may be especially toxic. Cytokines and pro-inflammatory substances in general are released and granulated tissue forms, enveloping the particles. This provokes inflammation which, in the long run, if locally persistent, is known to be a precursor to cancer.”

Infections During Pregnancy May Raise Autism Risk

Another recent study31 highlights the danger of stimulating the immune system of a pregnant woman. Women with active genital herpes infections during the early stage of pregnancy were twice as likely to give birth to a child with autism, compared to those without infection. As noted by NBC News, “The findings … add to evidence that inflammation during pregnancy may affect the brain of a developing fetus.”

According to Dr. Ian Lipkin, an epidemiologist and infectious disease expert and lead author, the damage is likely caused by inflammatory chemicals crossing the placenta, thereby impacting the baby’s brain development. Previous research has also shown that women who came down with the flu during pregnancy were twice as likely to have an autistic child. Those who had a fever lasting for one week or longer had three times the risk.

What’s not mentioned is the fact that vaccines do the very same thing — they stimulate the immune system and produce an inflammatory response, including in women who are given a flu shot and/or a Tdap shot while they are pregnant. A 2008 article by Dr. Russell Blaylock explains the danger of excessive vaccination during brain development.

So why are pregnant women told to get vaccinated during pregnancy when there’s no sound scientific evidence showing it’s safe to do so?32

There’s No Escaping the Vaccine Safety Discussion

There are staunch mandatory vaccination proponents who would like you to believe that the vaccine safety science is in and the vaccine safety debate has long since been settled. They’re wrong. Very wrong.

In fact, the “debate” about vaccine safety science has not even strictly begun. There are huge gaps in the knowledge base in part due to the fact that well designed comparative studies of health outcomes in vaccinated and unvaccinated persons have not yet been conducted to draw credible scientific conclusions about long-term safety.

However, there have been compelling indications of harm for a long time. For example, studies have shown the flu vaccine weakens the immune system, making children more susceptible to more severe illness by hampering the development of certain types of immunity.33 A recent article by journalist Jeremy Hammond does an excellent job of distilling the problem facing unquestioning vaccine proponents:34

“In a recent The Washington Post op-ed, pediatrician Daniel Summers argues that when it comes to the safety and efficacy of vaccines, there’s nothing to debate … Yet his own arguments illustrate why he’s wrong and why there is indeed a debate to be had. So why is he so afraid of having it?

Dr. Summers actually answers this question for us with some comments that explain his own demonstrable confirmation bias (the tendency to accept facts that support his own position while ignoring facts that contradict it). He writes:

‘If vaccines genuinely cause autism like their opponents claim, one of two things must be true of pediatricians like me who administer them. Either we are too incompetent to discern the relationship between the two, or we are too monstrous to care. One cannot believe that autism is related to vaccination without simultaneously indicting the overwhelming majority of physicians, nurses and other medical providers in this country.’

So there you have it. If his view was shown to be wrong, it would demonstrate that either he’s incompetent or he’s evil. It’s only natural that we can expect Summers, then, to be accepting of science that supports his view while dismissive of science that contradicts it.”

As a doctor, I can empathize with this psychological conundrum. It’s a terrible feeling to realize that, at some point in your life, you didn’t have the knowledge you should have had and you led your patients the wrong way.

But I can also attest to the fact that, if you are a physician, you can admit your mistake and correct course and it will not destroy you or your medical practice. On the contrary, it inspires trust in your patients. And when it comes to vaccines, a course correction by adopting a new approach is not only necessary but inevitable.

How to Lose Track of the Big Picture In America Today and Create Your Own “Truth”

How to Lose Track of the Big Picture In America Today and Create Your Own "Truth" | propaganda-crossroads | Consciousness Mainstream Media New World Order Propaganda Sleuth Journal Society US News World News

The first chapter in my book ‘The Art of Overcoming the New World Order’ is titled ‘How to stay perfectly brainwashed in the matrix’. I pose this set of instruction to demonstrate that we as humans make big decisions every day and no matter how much we try to escape reality and live in an alternate reality believing mainstream media lies and propaganda, everyone should be aware that there is a process for ensuring that one stays blind and dumbed-down all the days of their lives. Similarly today in 2017, as we close in on the conclusion of the first quarter of the year too many people are focusing on things that are relatively unimportant and very secondary to what is really happening. Far too many people are preoccupied with issues that are deliberately designed to distract from the big picture.

Mass deception is now the stunning norm. The entire Left is completely (and irreversibly?) disconnected from reality. Right wing Republicans are being told that terrorism and ISIS is a real threat that only more wars will fix and that waging more wars is necessary to keep America “safe”. Many Anarchists are zeroing in on anything that points to evidence of politician broken promises because these broken promises validate their core belief that the world should operate without any governments or nation state. The rationale being since statism is all bad then the perils and trials that come with the practice of statism are well deserved. In other words, “haha, told you so, it’s all your problem”. With all of these paradigms and beliefs occurring at the same time the grounds for keeping people focused on what is really happening and how to solve these problems become much more difficult to convey to the masses.

People everywhere are being lied to and deceived about what is most important today and these “issues” then become the primary focus of their lives. All of this while the big picture unfolds at record pace. The big picture which effects us all and ultimately what I believe is by far the most important story unfolding today. And that is the deep state struggle for the destruction and essential overthrow of the United States of America. Yes, there is a ruling elite cabal that wants their new world order and they want it now. The globalists who have been funding “revolutions” across the globe for decades have now set their sights on America. As we speak they are trying everything they can to overthrow the President of the United States, create chaos and undermine the Trump presidency.

All along, what the anti-Trump Liberal Left doesn’t realize is that this is not really about Trump. Believe it or not, this is about undermining any President that stands for the nation state itself. Most Left wing Liberals and progressives fail to see that had it been any other person in the world winning the Presidency, if that person stood for restoring America that president would have equally gotten the same treatment the deep state’s corporate mainstream media is giving Trump right now. Think about this! Trump haters have no idea how deep the true (globalist, collectivist, Communist) agenda for one world government runs.

So in an effort to shine the light on what you should be focusing on I’ll outline all the little things you should focus on in order to stay disconnected and completely out of focus from the big picture. Remember that staying out of focus with the big picture works out perfect for the ruling elite for many reasons so here’s what you can do to stay out of focus of the big picture … that is, the current attempted coup d’etat and overthrow of President Trump, the rule of law and the United States of America.

1. Stay focused on Donald Trump “fake news” nonsense talk about “Russia” election hacking despite the fact that zero evidence has ever been presented and this witch hunt was perfectly timed and called for by Obama triggering memories of the 1950’s style McCarthyism. Not to mention that now we know for sure thanks to the Wikileaks Vault 7 revelations that the rogue deep state’s CIA has had the capabilities of creating fake evidence, listening in on everyone and even assassinating people without leaving a trace!

2. Keep believing everything the mainstream media puts out including the fully discredited Jerry Springer style Washington Post as well as the rest of the fully discredited mainstream media including CNN, MSNBC, Reuters, NPR, Newsweek, NY Times to name a few.

As you probably know this massive cluster of fake and biased news media which endorsed 8 full years of Obama sorcery, lies and illegal wars is working perfectly together with the CIA synchronizing their stories and delivering maximum deception on cue every day to keep America divided, to keep the Trump bashing going, to keep people angry and divided and most importantly to keep people in the fake reality that the rulers have created for them.

3. Look for anything Trump (or anyone in his administration) does or says that can justify the call for impeachment, violence or punishment on those individuals. No matter how small or untrue the issue actually is. Try hard and make sure to paint Trump to be a fascist dictator worse than Hitler. That ought to keep everyone fired up, completely out of focus from the big picture and especially that will create instant amnesia for 8 years of Obama administration criminality not to mention the Clinton criminality now blown wide open for the world to see.

4. With the deception cranked up to full force throw in Hollywood and celebrity propaganda into your list of fully trusted news sources. Tell yourself that you SHOULD care what celebrities like Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus or Rosie O’Donnell have to say. That’s right, just sit back, listen and believe whatever Hollywood and the Liberal Left celebrities tell you reality is. Tell yourself that since these celebrities are famous and worshiped by many then they must know what is truly going on and they must have an inside track on objective Truth, reason and logic. How dare you think that you could understand the world better than they can or that you have the capability of thinking on your own.

5. Whatever you do, make sure to resist any thoughts of reason and logic that try to creep into your thoughts. If fully verifiable revelations (like Wikileaks, Project Veritas or any other recent revelations) reveal information about your favorite politician or political party that is contrary to what you want to believe then look to see if your favorite politician denies the allegations and direct accusations. If they even slightly deny it (like John Podesta laughing off the factual Wikileaks emails exposing his own actions) then just assume that they are telling the truth and regardless of what is revealed. Just laugh it all off and know that it’s all made up conspiracies.

Don’t worry that those denying the long list of now fully revealed crimes inside the deep state have no proof to substantiate their claims and allegations (like the claims that Russia hacked the election for Trump). Just believe these claims at face value. No proof required because Obama’s corrupt CIA and their mainstream media said it.

If you follow these 5 simple steps you should be well on your way to being completely disconnected from the reality and the final chapter of America’s end game. You will be able to say goodbye to the big picture and hello to whatever do-it-yourself fantasy world you want to live in. That new fantasy world you create will then become the new big picture. You will then realize that this alternate reality you’ve create for yourself with the help of Hollywood and mainstream media which the many people now live in is very real in the sense that many others will stand with you. In this world you will soon see that anything is possible. That’s right. You can be anything you want to be in this alternate reality. Yes, if you are a natural born male you can plan on becoming a female in the future then revert back to male if you tired of being female! Just say the words and that new reality begins because there are no silly boundaries like natural law, morality, cultural or religious norms or even natural provable scientific methods in the way of the things you want to believe. It’s just you and your imagination! Think of this as your new “freedom” and “prosperity”. In fact, if you take lots of prescription medication and mind altering drugs the ride gets even better! You’ll be able to explore ANY world you want.

And it gets better. Know that the United Nations has your back. In fact since the days of Bush Sr and even many decades before that many have written books about this world you are hoping to enter now. And Obama’s empire rolled out Agenda 2030 which is a clear picture of you future “sustainable” world of “peace and prosperity”. Time to celebrate, woohoo!!

As you move farther and farther from Truth, reality and reason tell yourself that there are no consequences governed by natural law in response to the rejection of reality and Truth. Tell yourself that you chose “reality” over that other thing others are saying that doesn’t agree with what you are saying. And tell yourself that the position others take, pointing out corruption throughout the Obama-Bush-Clinton deep state, is nothing more than “fiction” and “fake news” being believed by people who are not awakened to mainstream media and Hollywood Truth. And tell yourself that you being the REAL truth seeker would know and understand this as much as anyone else.

If you do all the things written above you’ll be sure to lose track completely of reality and pretty much everything important going on in America and the world as we get closer and closer to the now very dangerous and very real engineered American civil war intended to undermine and overthrow not just President Trump and the rule of law but all of America in favor of a fully recognized global order.

Pentagon Plan to Defeat ISIS?

Pentagon Plan to Defeat ISIS? | donald-trump-peentagon | Military Pentagon Propaganda War Propaganda World News

America created and supports ISIS. So do NATO, Israel and other regional rogue states.

It’s heavy weapons and other material support don’t materialize out of thin air. They come from foreign backers, including by US airdrops.

Trump’s stated intention to defeat ISIS so far is just political bluster. In 2014, Obama promised the same thing, saying “America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat.”

“Our objective is clear. We will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy.”

He lied. Support for ISIS and other terrorist groups continued. Since US terror-bombing began in Iraq and Syria, vital infrastructure was targeted, thousands of civilians massacred.

Obama: “…I want the American people to understand how this effort…will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil.”

He then deployed thousands of US special forces to Iraq, at least hundreds to Syria, directly engaged in combat, not there solely as advisors as he claimed.

According to the Pentagon connected Stars and Stripes, Defense Secretary Mattis briefed Trump’s national security officials yesterday “on a Pentagon-led plan to ‘rapidly defeat’ the Islamic State group,” citing Defense Department spokesman navy Captain Jeff Davis.

Last Monday, the Pentagon submitted a classified preliminary strategy to the White House, its details not revealed.

According to Davis, current operations remain unchanged for now – “emphasiz(ing) that this is the broad framework of a plan. It’s a global plan. It is not just military. It is not just Iraq (and) Syria.”

Stars and Stripes said it “focus(es) primarily on boosting the military actions against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, but it will also provide plans to target its offshoots in other locations as well as other extremist groups such as al-Qaida.”

For years, America waged fantasy war on al-Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorist groups while supporting them. Is Trump’s war on terror more of the same?

Strategy may involve greater numbers of US combat troops in Iraq and Syria, as well as more arms and other material support for nonexistent “moderate rebels” in Syria, wanting Assad’s government toppled, tyranny replacing it.

CENTCOM commander General Joseph Votel said more US forces may be needed in Syria. Hundreds currently there operate illegally without permission from Damascus, supporting terrorist groups, not combating them.

Mattis’ plan may be more of the same. Saying on his visit to Baghdad last week “(w)e’re going to continue to go after them (ISIS) until we destroy them” sounds like Obama’s earlier deception.

In the aftermath of all US elections, everything changes but stays the same, Trump following the same script.

Big Brother in America is Now the U.S. Media (VIDEO)

Big Brother in America is Now the U.S. Media (VIDEO) | tv | Corporate Takeover Government Government Control Government Corruption Mainstream Media Multimedia Propaganda

Journalism and a free, open media is another “check and balance on the three branches of Government and we don’t have that check and balance anymore.” – Shadow of Truth

One of the hallmarks of a totalitarian political regime is control of the media. In 1996 president Bill Clinton signed into law the Telecommunications Act of 1996. This law, which was bought and paid for by corporate media lobbies, allowed big corporations to acquire and consolidate media outlets nationwide.

The 1996 law lifted the limit on the number of television and radio stations any one corporation could own. In 2003, the FCC voted to lift the ban on cross-ownership of newspapers and full-power broadcast stations that serviced the same community. This was the final nail in the coffin of free and competitive media and news-reporting in the U.S.

The 1996 Clinton law followed by the lifting of the cross-ownership ban enabled Corporate America to increase their monopoly on the flow of information in the U.S. and around the world. Now six corporations control well over 90% of all media in the U.S.: NewsCorp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, CBS and Comcast.

“Wall Street slips on and geopolitical worries” (Reuters headline). What does the Trump/Obama wiretapping squabble have to do with whether the stock market goes up or down? It has nothing to do with whether or not corporations can produce goods and services profitably. Too be sure the accusation of wiretapping and the possibility that the accusation is accurate is troublesome in and of itself. But it has nothing to do with the fact that the stock market is currently the most overvalued in U.S. history.

The headlines, however reflect the degree to which all media reporting in the U.S. is now under the control of Corporate America – a Corporate America that has assumed control of the political process and has become Orwell’s Big Brother .

Most people associate the term “fascism” with an authoritarian and nationalistic political system. But it’s much more than that. Mussolini described “fascism” as the merger between Corporations and Government. The political system in the U.S. can easily be considered “fascist,” as Corporate America and Wall Street have used billions of dollars to take over the entire political process including all of the mainstream outlets of communication and news reporting.

The result is directly reflected in the nature of the 2016 presidential and congressional elections. The content of any news reporting is now a product of the material fed through the broadcast and print communication outlets controlled by six corporate monoliths and the Too Big To Fail banks that finance the system.

A good friend and colleague of the Shadow of Truth, John Titus, once quipped with regard to the public’s consumption and acceptance of anything reported as news, “put it on CNN and it’s true.” This statement succinctly summarizes the propaganda which supports the process by which the Government seeks to control the views and perceptions of the public at large. In today’s Shadow of Truth podcast, we toss around that fact that the United States has become a Goebellsian “playground” and George Orwell’s nightmare:

Hollywood Honors Terrorism

Hollywood Honors Terrorism | hollywood-propaganda-movies | Propaganda US News War Propaganda

Hollywood Academy Awards are all about film promotion for profits, unrelated to the industry’s best, way too little of it around. They also reflect longstanding Tinseltown ties to Washington. Scripts feature pro-Western propaganda.

Studio bosses are well compensated for colluding in glorifying America’s wars and demonizing its enemies – including “Islamic terrorists” and Russia.

Washington has final say on content and characters in propaganda films. It wants its agenda promoted, most people none the wiser.

History is reinvented. The state-sponsored 9/11 event is exploited. Rogue CIA agents are portrayed as heroes. Supporting America’s imperial agenda is more important than truth.

In 2013, Argo was chosen Hollywood’s top film. It should have been denounced instead of honored – reinventing a 1979/1980 Iranian hostage crisis episode.

The film was malicious, unjust and one-sided, Hollywood propaganda at its worst, ignoring what should have been featured, stereotypically portraying Iran according to Western misinformation.

At Hollywood’s 89th Academy Awards , The White Helmets propaganda film was honored as the past year’s best documentary short – portraying terrorists as heroes.

The group has nothing to do with civil defense as claimed, everything to do with supporting terrorism against sovereign independent Syria.

Its personnel operate in al-Nusra (al-Qaeda in Syria) controlled areas. Calling themselves volunteer rescue workers responsible for saving tens of thousands of lives is rubbish.

America and Britain support the group. So does the Soros Open Society Foundation and likeminded pro-Western interests.

White Helmets have been photographed and videotaped together with al-Nusra terrorists during beheadings and other atrocities. They support creation of a no-fly zone to prevent Syrian aerial self-defense.

The Syria Solidarity Movement calls them al Qaeda “with a facelift,” fostering terrorism and imperial ravaging on the pretext of humanitarianism.

People associated with the group are enemies of fundamental freedoms – warriors, not peacemakers, foreign-supported dark forces wanting tyranny replacing Syrian sovereign independence.

They were nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize. Instead it went to narco-state terrorist Juan Manuel Santos, Colombia’s president. As Alvaro Uribe’s defense minister, he was notorious for massacring “entire population centers,” James Petras explained.

Nobel committee members honored state terrorism. So did Hollywood last night in naming The White Helmets last year’s best documentary short.

Watching Pizzagate Researchers Get Sandy Hooked (VIDEO)

Watching Pizzagate Researchers Get Sandy Hooked (VIDEO) | pizzagate-researchers | False Flags Multimedia Propaganda Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News

It’s been said that what goes around comes around and there is no doubt that includes lies, deceit, maleficence and the consequence of allowing injustice and corruption. All of these energies repeatedly circulate around us. An important thing about thinking reasonably and exercising wisdom is understanding, or should I say, recognizing certain objective realities about the world we live in. One of those realities or truisms is realizing that we live in a continuum of events. Though time, or the perception of time, always moves forward, we (humans) live in a cycle of actions and corresponding reactions to those actions. Therefore events that occur always carry consequences and repercussions that come about as a result of the playing out of these events (actions) and these “event energies” then circulate throughout humanity. Everything has a price and everything, in other words, begets something. And although many expressions of “reality” and many ideas are always playing out at the same time, things are constantly happening that impact all of us in one way or another… all at once.

Ancient wisdom also teaches that at an individual level a person deservingly reaps what they sow and that every person makes their bed. We see examples of this relationship all around us and all the days of our lives. So what do we do with this knowledge? Well, I choose to share this knowledge and then apply this knowledge to current day events. So let’s do that.

Today the topic is Pizzagate. We all know the story by now. At least as far as Wikileaks is concerned. Through unlucky circumstances Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta falls for an email phishing scam which allows hackers to hack into his email. Wikileaks produces these emails for the general public after months of warning of an “October surprise”. The October surprise ends up surprising the world in more ways than most of us thought it would. It costs Hillary the presidency (perhaps?) and pulls the cover on an ugly dark world of unimaginable corruption and downright evil.

The common denominator of unfathomable degeneracy that seems to pull everyone together would be the detection of a pattern of coded talk between Podesta, Hillary and many D.C. insiders that, as per experts throughout the world including the FBI themselves, very suspiciously sounds like conversations involving a pedophilia operation. (For anyone who hasn’t yet, you can dig through the emails here). Wikileakes founder Julian Assange would then express that the revelation of these and many other emails to the general public would be for the greater good of fighting and exposing corruption and criminality. The emails pointing to behavior patterns consistent with pedophilia would eventually point researchers to 2 pizzerias in the D.C. area. Before we knew it the phrase “Pizzagate” was coined and here we are today.

Since the Pizzagate scandal broke, as many of us know, the Obama regime’s Intelligence struck back with what truth seekers refer to as the “fake news” psyop. Although most Truth seekers may not have considered this, I postulate that the birth of “fake news” was a necessary defense on the part of the ruling elite. This “necessary defense” was a direct reaction to the Wikileaks revelations. This proves categorically, if you ask me, that sharing information can and will potentiate what we call “paradigm shift”. The Wikileaks revelation proved this.

The “reaction” to the revelation gave us the new consciousness of “fake news” awareness. The problem the ruling elite ran into was that they were the ones pushing fake news 24/7. Another problem they faced is a diminishing mainstream media news audience and an increasing alternative news audience thriving on the internet.

But the most important point I want to make is that the chain reaction of events triggered what I believe to be a new level of mass awakening. Proof of this is that for the first time in American history people are so awakened to what is really happening that doubting the mainstream media’s authenticity, honesty and reliability is not only a legitimate and popular concern, but it is the very topic on the table whenever they speak. Consider that before this era of information it was unheard of for the masses to cast doubt on mainstream media news. Now it is common and if that is not paradigm shift I don’t know what is.

But going back to what I said earlier about the interconnectedness of events and the reciprocating energies and consequences. This current paradigm shift of awareness has given birth to not only a new level of awareness of the problems we face (which is good) but also a new level of intimidation and censorship against the Truth. And some Pizzagate researchers are now experiencing this firsthand. They are being intimidated, videos, articles and links are being taken down from social media and who knows what else is happening or even more so what else is coming in the future behind the scenes in an attempt to silence the truth about pedophilia inside the deep state.

Sandy Hook was a very special event for the ruling elite’s future new world order model because it provided the backdrop for a unique form of censorship and criminalization of truth which before Sandy Hook we had not ever seen. Whether they realize it or not Pizzagate researchers are now being grinded through the same Sandy Hook model for criminalizing and demonizing truth seekers who dare look into these events. But think about it. These tough times are a direct consequence of our own achievements in spreading awareness. And that brings us back full circle to the connectivity and action-reaction model I spoke about earlier.

So naturally the next question is how and when will enough of the masses truly and energetically react to the obvious abuse truth seekers are enduring at the hands of those who are tasked with protecting these lies, events and stories? The answer to this question depends on how soon the masses begin to see the connections that are always right in front of us and which we are constantly told not to see.

The Right Way to Challenge Fake News

The Right Way to Challenge Fake News | fake-news-propaganda | Mainstream Media Politics Propaganda Trump

Trump is right challenging fake news. It’s about time someone in high office did it. He’s going about it the wrong way.

Without speech, media and academic freedoms, all other rights are threatened.

Barring certain media outlets from attending Friday’s White House press briefing while letting others in was wrongheaded and counterproductive.

The NYT falsely called the move unprecedented, “something no administration of either party has ever done.”

Not quite. In 2009, the Obama White House said it would no longer conduct interviews with Fox News as a member of the press pool, an unprecedented act at the time.

Other media outlets objected. The White House relented. It remained hostile to Fox News criticism of its policies.

On February 24, NYT editors blasted Trump’s move, absurdly calling it “a backhanded compliment to the reporters whose honest work provoked the president’s latest foot-stamping tantrum” – a gratuitous insult, falsely referring to barred news organizations as “trustworthy.”

Far from it! The Times and other media scoundrels feature fake news, suppressing what’s most important to report.

They’re largely anti-Trump, inventing reasons to bash him. Justifiable criticism is warranted. Biased reporting defiles what journalism is supposed to be.

On Friday, Trump called media “the opposition party…mak(ing) up stories and mak(ing) up sources.”

Candidate Trump said he wasn’t “running against crooked Hillary. I’m running against the crooked media,” he stressed – referring to the media as the “lowest form of humanity.”

Throughout the campaign, they went all out to get him, continuing post-inauguration. The power of scoundrel media manipulated public sentiment works.

Fiction substitutes for important facts. News is sanitized, dissent marginalized. Supporting wealth, power and privilege substitutes for full and accurate reporting.

Wars of aggression are called liberating ones. They’re glorified in the name of peace. Civil liberties are suppressed for our own good. Patriotism means supporting what harms the public welfare.

Might is justified as right. Raping nations is called democracy building. Looting them is considered economic development. Free societies are threatened. Tyranny stalks America.

Truth-telling is a vital disinfectant. The way to challenge media scoundrels isn’t by barring them from press briefings. It’s by exposing their fake news with hard, irrefutable facts.

Trump has bully pulpit power. He has over 25 million Twitter followers plus other ways to counter media lies if done responsibly.

On Friday, he tweeted,

“FAKE NEWS media knowingly doesn’t tell the truth. A great danger to our country. The failing @nytimes has become a joke. Likewise @CNN. Sad!”

Most Americans distrust the media for good reason. Growing numbers rely on alternative sources to stay informed. It’s the only way!
