How Corrupt is the Media ?

The media has ceased to exist, and the public plods on by assuming as true whatever the media suppresses and as false whatever the media covers.

The current “media”—loosely defined as the old major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post, the network news channels, MSNBC and CNN, PBS and NPR, the online news aggregators like Google, Apple, and Yahoo, and the social media giants like the old Twitter and Facebook—are corrupt.

They have adopted in their news coverage a utilitarian view that noble progressive ends justify almost any unethical means to obtain them. The media is unapologetically fused with the Democratic Party, the bicoastal liberal elite, and the progressive agenda.

The result is that the public cannot trust that the news it hears or reads is either accurate or true. The news as presented by these outlets has been carefully filtered to suppress narratives deemed inconvenient or antithetical to the political objectives of these entities, while inflating themes deemed useful.

This bias now accompanies increasing (and increasingly obvious) journalistic incompetence. Lax standards reflect weaponized journalism schools and woke ideology that short prior basic requisites of writing and ethical protocols of quoting and sourcing. In sum, a corrupt media that is ignorant, arrogant, and ideological explains why few now trust what it delivers.


Once a story is deemed antithetical to left-wing agendas, there arises a collective effort to smother it. Suppression is achieved both by neglect, and by demonizing others who report an inconvenient truth as racists, conspiracist “right-wingers,” and otherwise irredeemable.

The Hunter Biden laptop story is the locus classicus. Social media branded the authentic laptop as Russian disinformation. That was a lie. But the deception did not stop them from censoring and squashing those who reported the truth.

Instead of carefully examining the contents of the laptop or interrogating Biden-company players such as Tony Bobulinksi, the media hyped the ridiculous disinformation hoax as a mechanism for suppressing the damaging pre-election story altogether.

Thank you, Media

“Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.”

–Thomas Jefferson to Richard Price, January 8, 1789

True. But when people are badly informed; misinformed; or not informed at all, other than with tripe and propaganda?

Then you have the situation we have today. Mass hysteria, widespread ignorance, and movement toward either all-out totalitarianism or civil war. Or both.

Thank you, media.

The Fake News Matrix

A friend insisted that I watch some of the US TV reporting of Russia’s police action in Eastern Ukraine, called a “Russian invasion” by the Western Presstitutes. He said it was such comically infantile war propaganda that he was insulted that the media would think Americans stupid enough to fall for it. To sum it up, there was no reporting, just fictions deployed to demonize Putin and Russia in the most incompetent way conceivable. The Russians are both destroying Ukraine, bombing and killing everyone, shooting down Ukrainians as they flee cities and losing the war. Their invasion has been halted by Ukrainian forces led by neo-Nazi “freedom fighters.” This despite all “freedom fighters” being surrounded and cut off. Massive Russian loses of troops, tanks, and jet fighters are reported. Only a portion of the Russian troops have been committed to combat, but according to the presstitutes Russia is reduced to replacing its decimated troops with conscripted untrained youth and elderly men and begging China for weapons with which to fight. Hungry and unfed Russian troops are surrendering to Ukrainian forces in order to get something to eat. Russia is on the verge of being unable to continue fighting. As soon as Putin is captured, former British prime ministers want him tried as a war criminal. The “news” degenerates from this point on.

The “invasion” is a limited military operation in eastern Ukraine to clear Donbass of the Ukrainian military elements, both official army and neo-Nazi militias, that have been shelling Donbass Russians for 8 years. Russia intervened after the West and Ukraine consistently refused to abide by the Minsk Agreement and cease the attacks.

The intervention has been highly successful. Precision strikes destroyed Ukrainian military infrastructure and weapon systems prior to the arrival of Russian troops. Ukraine has no air force left, no navy left. Its military units are cut off and surrounded. The only remaining obstacle is the neo-Nazis who have taken advantage of the Russian policy of minimizing civilian casualties by ensconcing themselves among civilian populations. The Russians created corridors for civilians to leave, but the neo-Nazi militias do not permit it as they are using the civilians as shields. The Russians are deciding between letting the neo-Nazis leave, which means they would escape both death and the war crimes trials the Russians intend for them, or accepting the casualties of street by street fighting. Negotiations with Zelensky to end the conflict don’t seem to make much sense as Zelensky does not have control over the neo-Nazi militias.

The presstitutes’ blathering about sending jet fighters and weapons to Ukraine’s embattled forces is nonsense. There is no way for the weapons to get through the Russian lines and no airfields in Ukraine from which jet fighters, for which no pilots exist, can operate. The notion of a US/NATO no-fly zone over Ukraine is comical. Russian air superiority is total.

The Russian military intervention could have been avoided, but Washington insisted on leaving Russia no choice. Washington wanted the intervention. Fearful of losing its European empire to growing trade relations and energy dependence on Russia, Washington is using the intervention for a psyops campaign that puts Russia beyond the pale. The entire “international community,” like a bunch of lemmings, is in the process of eliminating all Russian connections. Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, has had his name erased from a space conference celebrating human achievements, and the International Energy Agency has proposed “Car-free Sundays” to punish Putin, which somehow won’t punish those confined to home on Sundays, American oil companies, and Saudi Arabia.

Andrei Martyanov reminds us of the extent of the “international community.” Meanwhile, the rest of the world marvels that the Western world with its plan to destroy 7 countries in 5 years can only find war criminals in Russia.

My concern about Russia’s limited military operation is that the concern with civilian lives delays the conclusion and gives time for the West to blunder into a wider war. The limited operation and delay also deprives Russia of the “shock and awe” effect of a total and quick conquest, easily within their means, which could have made Europe realize that provoking Russia is not a good policy and cease enabling Washington’s provocations, which eventually will result in nuclear war. In other words, better Ukrainian casualties now than the whole world later.

The silver lining in the sanctions is that they are forcing Russia to disengage from globalism and thereby will reduce the danger of nuclear war by minimizing Russia’s contacts with the West. Those who are defeated by the sanctions are the pro-Western fifth column inside Russia known as the “Atlanticist Integrationists,” those determined that Russia sacrifice its sovereignty in order to be part of the West. The sanctions have damaged the influence of the West’s fifth column inside Russia.

The Media Destroyed America

It did not take long for the Lie Machine, aka American media, to create the false news and fake narrative of the “storming of the US Capitol” on January 6 by a “white supremacist insurrection.” Here is an example from Bloomberg Weekend Reading on January 23, 2021:

“The scenes from the first day of Joe Biden’s presidency unfolded against the backdrop of a devastated U.S. economy, continuing fallout from a white supremacist insurrection, and a coronavirus death toll surpassing 400,000.” *

The fake narrative is accepted everywhere. It is endemic in the world press. Even news sources such as RT and Sputnik which endeavor to give us real news instead of presstitute lies have repeated the insurrection story.

President Trump was impeached by the House on the sole basis of this fake news story, and now stands to be tried in the Senate on the same fake news charges.

On the basis of the same fake news story, two Florida banks in which Trump had multi-million dollar deposits closed Trump’s accounts.

Signature Bank in New York also closed Trump’s account.

As did Germany’s Deutsche Bank.

New York mayor Bill de Blasio, who permitted Antifa and BLM to loot and burn Manhattan, has terminated the city’s contracts with Trump businesses that run ice skating rinks and a carousel in Central Park and a golf course in the Bronx.

The PGA of America voted to take the PGA Championship away from Trump’s New Jersey Golf course.


Other sources report that conventions are avoiding his hotels and that creditors will not renew loans.

That fake news can have such real world consequences should scare every American to death.

Notice also how the fake news story worsens with each repeat. On January 6, the alleged insurrection was by “Trump supporters.” By January 23 Trump supporters had been morphed into “White supremacist insurrectionists.”

The entire world now believes in something that does not exist.

This is an example of what it means to live in The Matrix. Everyone lives in a false world created by lies repeated endlessly by pressitutes.

The ruling lies are lies that enable Establishment agendas by getting rid of non-establishment explanations and shutting down non-establishment leaders. Trump had to go because he was in the way of Establishment agendas. An example is being made of Trump as a lesson to others who value service to the people higher than service to the Establishment.

There is no doubt whatsoever that Trump won reelection. The accumulated evidence of electoral fraud is overwhelming. Yet the Lie Machine was able to prevent the evidence being presented and examined. All the presstitutes ever said was that “there is no evidence of fraud,” followed by “all who support examining the evidence are enemies of democracy.”

In other words, democracy is a stolen election. If you protest the theft, you are an enemy of democracy.

On December 29, 2020, almost two months after the November presidential election and after almost two months of demonization of Trump for saying the election was stolen, the Gallup Poll reported that its survey found that Donald Trump had displaced Obama as the man most admired by Americans.

Yet the most admired man lost the election.

The fact that a presidential election could be stolen in plain view, attested to by numerous experts and a thousand signed affidavits, could go unexamined by the media, state and federal attorneys general, courts, and Congress, shows the power of the Establishment and the impotence of the media which, far from free, is in total service to the Establishment. The public never heard about the evidence from TV, newspapers, or NPR.

Clearly, in America there is no such thing as democracy. An election was stolen and nothing was done about it. The Establishment was able to eliminate a president who did not serve its purposes and nothing was done about it.

The people learned that their vote means nothing and, therefore, there is no democracy. A government controlled by the Establishment is unaccountable to the people.

Perhaps there is a silver lining. It has been a long time since government policy served the public. The public accepted the situation, because most people believed it was in some way a democratic outcome. Now they know that “American democracy” was nothing but a mask for Establishment self-interests. Perhaps the stolen election will serve as a wake-up call to bring the population out of its insouciance. There are signs that the Establishment is concerned that it will, thus the new domestic terrorism bill which will be used to criminalize dissent as terrorism.

For those who are indoctrinated by media repetition that “there is no evidence of electoral fraud,” let’s assume this lie is correct. The fact remains that the system has failed the people. Whether the election was stolen or not, 74 million Americans according to the official vote count and 94 million Americans according to expert estimates of Trump’s true vote count believe that the election was stolen. Yet, the concerns of these millions of Americans were dismissed out of hand as fraudulent claims. The presstitutes claimed repeatedly that the only fraud was the claim of fraud.

The Democrats, the media, and the institutions put in place to ensure a free society failed totally in their responsibility to address the sincere concerns of half or more of the voting population. This in itself is a failure of democracy, a failure of the Establishment.

Those who expressed their concerns were not only dismissed but also demonized, threatened and punished as “enemies of democracy.”

The lesson cannot be more clear: An enemy of democracy is all who challenge the controlled explanation.

The US enters the year 2021 as a country that has moved from the list of democracies to the list of authoritarian governments and is rapidly becoming a totalitarian country in which freedom of speech, freedom of association, and due process are dead letter Constitutional protections. The Gestapo knock at the door, the NKVD knock at the door have come to America.

  • Notice that this is a two for one sentence. Bloomberg got in the fake news of 400,000 US Covid deaths. This figure comes from counting everyone who dies regardless if from Covid, as a Covid death. The Covid test produces a very high rate of false positives, thus greatly exaggerating the number of infections. Many experts have pointed this out as did the inventor of the PCR test, but presstitutes have kept a lid on the news. Now the World Health Organization has finally admitted that the Covid-19 PCR test has a problem.

Why Democrats Always Hide Their True Agenda

The media and Democrats’ playbook is always the same.

Their radical big-government policies are not popular, so they hide the truth about them from the public.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were essentially kept in the basement while the media and other Democrats repeatedly attacked Trump.

While Twitter and Facebook executives were helping and contributing to Biden, they were censoring Trump and his supporters while burying negative stories on Biden.  They never censored Biden, no matter how much he lied.

Currently, Biden and Obama are telling their supporters to shut up about defunding the police, a standard trope coming from the left, because voters don’t like it. They say they can get to it later.  Defunding police is rephrased to call it reimagining the police or some other intentionally misleading term.  When Republicans want to slow down the increase or freeze education spending, food stamps, Medicaid, or Medicare, the media and other Democrats call them drastic cuts and say Republicans don’t care about health care, or children, and that they want people to starve.  When Democrats want to drastically cut police budgets, it is called “reimagining.”

In 2009, Obama, Biden, and the Democrats repeatedly lied to get Obamacare passed.  They told everyone the known lies that Obamacare would allow you to keep your doctor and keep your plan and that your premiums would go down substantially.  House speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats must pass the bill to see what was in it.  The results of Obamacare showed that prices skyrocketed, and choice was taken away.  Money was also taken from Medicare to fund Obamacare.  Life expectancy unexpectedly dropped for three straight years.  Through it all, the media cheer and want more government-run health care.  Facts don’t matter.

Obama and other Democrats have also always wanted single-payer (or rather, government-run) health care but know they have to hide what they want from the public, so they attack the private sector incrementally with the full support of the compliant media.  They truly don’t care how many jobs they destroy in the private sector as they move toward socialism.  They also try to hide the word “socialism” from the public as much as possible.

Here’s just one example from the days of President Obama:

Obama for Single-Payer Before He Was Against It

In 2003, Obama said he supports a single-payer health care system, and that the only reason we “may not get there immiediately” [sic] is “because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House” — which, of course, we have:

“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program…I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.” — Barack Obama, 2003

When power-hungry greedy Democrats want more money, they talk about people paying their “fair” share.  They claim that the people who like lower taxes and smaller government are “greedy.”  Doesn’t “fair share” sound nice?  But there is never enough money for the politicians and bureaucrats.

Republicans are called anti-abortion and pro-life.  Democrats are not called pro-abortion and pro-death.  Nope, they are called pro-choice.  That is so much more pleasant than pro-death.  Democrats who say women have freedom of choice don’t think they should have freedom of choice on what health care to buy.

Democrats claim that their lockdown policies are based on science, but the statistical data do not support that.  They do not determine who is essential or non-essential and what businesses to destroy, based on science.  Why do they close churches but keep liquor and marijuana stores open?  Could it be the tax revenue?  There were no data to ever support closing schools, yet many children are still suffering.  

Biden and Harris both said in debates that they would ban fracking, but in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, Biden lied and called Trump a liar for telling the truth.  Twitter and Facebook never blocked Biden’s lies.

The Democrats claim that their policies to get rid of oil are based on science, but there are no scientific data that show a direct link among temperatures, storm activity, sea levels, and oil consumption.  They just repeat the talking point that the science is settled to intentionally mislead the public.  No matter how wrong the previous dire predictions of the last 100 years have been, they just act like as if they were telling the truth.  People who tell the scientific truth, which is that the climate has always changed cyclically and naturally, are called liars, anti-science, climate change deniers, and stupid to beat them into submission.

The Democrat big government programs are called the Great Society programs and anti-poverty programs. They are neither. They are programs to move towards socialism and are meant to keep more people poor and dependent on government. They encouraged the breakup of the family which is the greatest indicator of who will end up in poverty.

Trump’s economic programs took unemployment levels of people of all races and educations levels to record lows, substantially raised stagnant wages for those at the bottom and reduced poverty levels to record lows at the end of 2019. And most of the media and other Democrats show how little they cared about minorities and the poor by rooting against and seeking to reverse those policies. They intentionally lie when they say Trump’s policies only benefit the rich. They claim that the phrase “Make America Great Again” is racist and bad. But somehow an idiotic phrase “Build Back Better” is fine.  

The media and other Democrats claim that they have always peacefully supported an incoming president, but that is a bald-faced lie. Many Democrats didn’t attend Trump’s inauguration. They started calling for his impeachment, based on the lies about Russian collusion before Trump took office. The Obama/Biden team was so helpful during the transition that they spent their time using their time unmasking, spying on, and targeting people like then-president-elect Trump’s National Security Advisor, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Democrats claim they believe in the law, the Constitution and that no one is above the law, but their actions and policies show they don’t care. They support sanctuary cities and states, don’t care that election officials violated their constitution and laws, and cheered wildly as Obama dictatorially and unconstitutionally changed immigration laws. Hillary Clinton, James Clapper, John Brennan, Eric Holder, and others were all above the law. Other Democrats let looters and arsonists go but you better not keep your restaurant or gym open in defiance of your masters.

If anybody wants to see the where the tactics of the media and other Democrats comes from just refer to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for radicals.

RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Most of the people pretending to be journalists are worthless and dangerous to our prosperity, freedom, democracy, and survival as a great country.  They are the existential threat because they have spent decades campaigning for Democrats and their leftist policies. They truly ramped up their baseless attacks the last four years.
