Your Ability To Find Out The Truth Is Being Threatened

If you’ve read George Orwell’s 1984 or know anything about psychology and social sciences, then you know that controlling what information is available to people can have the effect of controlling the thinking of those people. This is one of the fundamental reasons that the First Amendment was put into place in the Constitution. The founders of America knew that people may not like to hear every opinion and viewpoint (and, frankly, some viewpoints are simply idiotic and/or offensive), but people need to be able to express those other viewpoints so that people can hear and speak the truth.

But there seems to be a concerted effort now to prevent this from happening.

The mainstream media seems to be reeling from Hillary Clinton’s loss in the election which they unanimously predicted would make her America’s first female President. Blame their predictions on the Bradley Effect, in which people provide the politically correct answer in polls to avoid criticism, if you like. It doesn’t change the fact that their predictions were wrong. So, now, instead of learning how to actually report the truth instead of their own biases, they want to silence any opposition to mainstream media networks, and “progressive” politicians are supporting them.

So, now we have a “reporter” for Politico who was exposed by wikileaks as a Clinton “hack” trying to push her election as U.S. President now calling for censorship of “fake news sights.” The European Union is so paranoid about “fake news sights” that they are demanding that Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube censor them within 24 hours (by December 7, 2016).

Yet, on the flip side, we have documented evidence that politically left-leaning organizations regularly censor news to fit their particular viewpoint. For example, CNN ran a segment all but saying that Trump’s administration is going to put Muslims into internment camps in the same way that FDR did in World War II. This is despite the fact that the Trump camp hasn’t said that they are even considering internment camps.

It’s interesting that people criticizing Trump for something that he hasn’t said that he will do aren’t criticizing the Southern Poverty Law Center for labeling Tea Partiers and Libertarian-leaning people as terrorists and compiling lists of those organizations (Do they really think that the “Constitution Party of Georgia” is an extremist group? How exactly does that qualify as a dangerous group of people?).

The difficult thing is that many Americans still get their “news” from the very organizations who wish to silence any reporting from any other political angle than the mainstream media supports. This is censorship, pure and simple, and for anyone to call for the silencing of opposing viewpoints are simply seeking to control the minds of the general population by only presenting one side of the information available.

Keep in mind, this isn’t just about politics, this is also about the stability of the power grid infrastructure in America, the likelihood of an EMP attack on American soil, and the true likelihood of a disaster situation happening. If we can’t believe the mainstream media about their political reporting, how can we trust them about any other reporting?

The answer is that, we can’t.

The solution is to fight censorship of all kinds and look for media sources with viewpoints different than the mainstream media. Then you can, at least, evaluate the news to get an overall viewpoint to make intelligent decisions for you and your family.

How do you plan to handle this call for censorship by the mainstream media and political progressives? Tell us below.

  • Fake news sights? Is that like photoshopping? If you have a web sight does that mean you’ve walked into a spider’s trap? I know — Google a site that answers those questions.

  • I call this a bum rush by the leftists just like “The Big Lie” that Hitler used. Those who do not inderstand history are doomed to repeat it. This if unchecked will lead to a totalitarian government.

  • You’re ABSOLUTELY dead on the nail’s head! BUT! You’re being FAR to kind to our wretched politicians on BOTH sides of the isle!!!

    That aside, I believe that “We the People…”, MUST develop communications capabilities that the “POWER ELITE”, (Globalist & Communist), cannot TOTALLY destroy, OR eliminate. AND! I KNOW we WILL!

    For now tho, you, (and QUITE a LARGE # of sites & blogs, and Programs), are doing a GOOD job of keeping us informed.

    As far as the “HOW TO HANDLE IT” question, I’d rather not answer, accept to say, WE WILL HANDLE IT!

    But! QUIETLY, WISELY, and through folks we KNOW, and KNOW we can trust.

    The Nation WILL break up into areas of resistance, and freedom, and EACH AREA WILL form “Committees of Communication” once again, AND! “We the People…”, will, once again, establish the necessary methods for retaining, (and, IF NEEDED), hiding our body of FREEDOM LOVERS!

    A study of the efforts during BOTH the American Revolution, as well as during the CIVIL WAR, AND a study of the EUROPEAN “UNDERGROUND” methods during WWII…has a LOT of wise council to be found in those Histories!

    BUT!

    We’ll DEFINITELY have to forsake out beloved T.V.’s, and (probably Radios), eventually, and switch to more CAREFUL MEANS of “learning the truth”…AND, WE WILL!!!

  • Sadly, after 4 decades of unprecedented 20th century middle class prosperity beginning with the New Deal, their very real share of the magnificent USA wealth was condemned to death by Supply-side Economics of the 1980s. To consolidate this unfathomable, shared wealth to the top, it was necessary to place an incentive, not on broad prosperity, but on the ever growing profit margins mega Corporate profit margins and Wall Street gains. Any and all means were on the table, and our corrupt Representative form of Government climbed aboard.

    Truth? Hell, today’s disingenuous rhetoric doesn’t need to contain an element of it. For a look at how a large segment of our flummoxed, scared, and angry electorate of commoners have been hoodwinked with lies, look at this gem of a propaganda piece by the right wing think tank, Free Congress Foundation (you attach the moniker, “Free” or “Liberty,” or “Freedom” to the name of an organization and you hook ’em every time!). They named it, “The Integration of Theory and Practice” by Heubeck and Weyrich. These right wing think tanks contain cultural warriors, and they are organized, well-connected, and smart, not to mention unscrupulous! Their tactic is to flood the media with their spin; fake news, Fox News, disingenuous innuendo and inference, and bold faced lies that sound plausible enough to stir the base. Plus they’re winning the propaganda wars for the allegiance of the very middle class they’ve abandoned in favor of moneyed, special interest, while the left establishment is making their case for the social justice issue du jour, including transgender toilet selection. We never learn! It’s time we start!

    Here are some excerpts from the right wing propaganda manifesto, “The Integration of Theory and Practice:”

    “This essay is based on the belief that the truth of an idea is not the primary reason for its acceptance. Far more important is the energy and dedication of the idea’s promoters–in other words, the individuals composing a social or political movement.”

    “There will be three main stages in the unfolding of this movement. The first stage will be devoted to the development of a highly motivated elite able to coordinate future activities. The second stage will be devoted to the development of institutions designed to make an impact on the wider elite and a relatively small minority of the masses. The third stage will involve changing the overall character of American popular culture.:”

    “Our movement will be entirely destructive, and entirely constructive. We will not try to reform the existing institutions. We only intend to weaken them, and eventually destroy them. We will endeavor to knock our opponents off-balance and unsettle them at every opportunity. All of our constructive energies will be dedicated to the creation of our own institutions.”
