The war against the people: fear and loathing in NY and DC

The war against the people: fear and loathing in NY and DC

Thank you for your support. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

December 19, 2016

Vladimir Putin is the secret president of the United States.

Yep. That’s it. The US is now the USSR. It’s all over. Trump is a Communist who took orders from Putin. Trump is a Red. That was his game all along. He’s a billionaire Commie.

Here is how this would play out in a reasonable court, in the judge’s chambers—

Prosecutor: Your Honor, we’re prepared to offer proof that Putin personally influenced the election in favor of Trump.

Trump’s Lawyer: Nonsense. This is a ruse.

Judge: Mr. Prosecutor, what is the nature your proof?

Prosecutor: We will bring several CIA people to the stand and they will say they have proof.

Judge: Will they back up those statements with evidence, so Mr. Trump’s attorney can cross-examine them?

Prosecutor: No. Secrets must be kept.

Judge: Not in my court.

End of story.

Think about this: what will the major media do when their latest fiction about the Russians and Trump sinks below the waves? They’re lying so hard and so often…is there any end to it?

The answer is no. They’re committed. They can’t turn back.

They’re committing slow suicide in full view of the public.

It almost feels like they want to go down.

“Stop me before I kill again.”

Men and women of the news, whose whole act depends on securing trust and admiration from the public, are squandering whatever is left of it in the space of a few months.

“Well, they didn’t believe that outrageous lie. Let’s try one that’s even more ridiculous.”

Now they want to censor news which fails to fit their picture. And if they don’t watch out, they’ll take down Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter—their enablers—with them, as people find new social-media outposts.

Trump—love him, hate him, whatever—is playing his role. He’s virtually winning a new election every time the major media slam him and he comes back with a tweet that simply announces, “You’re full of it.”

Influential papers like the NY Times and the Washington Post have gotten a free pass for as long as they’ve been in business. Their staffs have developed a massive sense of their own importance, their own infallibility. They’re like popes—who’ve suddenly been exposed, in leaked documents, for falsely claiming Jesus wanted the Catholic Church built in his name.

George Orwell: “A totalitarian state is in effect a theocracy, and its ruling caste, in order to keep its position, has to be thought of as infallible.”

Recognize we’re in a unique situation here. This has never happened before—certainly not in a highly sophisticated civilization where the official means of communicating information were limited to a few basic sources. Those sources have lost now faith with the people. Instead, huge numbers of new outlets have emerged.

The mainstream is beginning to realize how great the shift is.

A centralized reality splitting up equals a centralized and hypnotized perception of reality splitting up.

Centralized reality, by its very nature, presents a false picture. In the absence of that monopoly, many new true stories emerge that were previously hidden. Each of these stories is, in effect, a new reality holding a candle in the dark.

Virtually all major news sources agreeing on the substance of virtually all important stories, over the course of decades, is completely unnatural and absurd. That agreement must be engineered. Concocted. Invented.

The “consistent concoction” is dissolving in the minds of the public. It no longer holds sway.

Hillary Clinton and her supporters should be thanked for contributing to this break-up. The public is viewing their actions as those of a child who refuses to admit she herself is at fault, and instead throws blame in every possible direction: thousands of “fake news” sites; the Russians; Putin; pollsters who failed to warn of impending doom; the Electoral College system; the “deplorables”; WikiLeaks; the FBI.

“It’s not our fault. It’s everybody else’s fault.”

Thank you, thank you.

Keep finding new people to blame. How about the Chinese, the Brexit supporters, some guy who owns a gas station in Death Valley, a massive tribe who live on the dark side of the moon and illegally voted for Trump?

Don’t stop now.

Interestingly, the big donors to Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign, who are shocked and irate after forking over their money, aren’t eagerly drinking the Putin Kool-Aid. They’re hard-headed, and they want real-life answers. As Politico writes (12/15):

“…the wealthy Democrats who helped pump over $1 billion into Clinton’s losing effort have been urging their local finance staffers, state party officials, and campaign aides to provide a more thorough explanation of what went wrong. With no dispassionate, centralized analysis of how Clinton failed so spectacularly, they insist, how can they be expected to keep contributing to the party?”

“’A lot of the bundlers and donors still are in shock and disbelief by what happened. They’re looking for some introspection and analysis about what really happened, what worked and what didn’t,’ said Ken Martin, chairman of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party and a top campaign bundler himself. ‘It may take some time to do that, but people are still just scratching their heads’.”

“Or, in the words of a Midwestern fundraiser who’s kept in touch with fellow donors, ‘A lot of people are saying, “I’m not putting another fucking dime in until someone tells me what just happened”.’”

The CIA-connected Washington Post can pump out as many “Putin-did-it” articles as they want to. But the big Clinton donors are unimpressed.

Don’t look for major media outlets to give those donors much face time. It would explode the blame-game narrative.

The NY Times is now calling Trump a threat to democracy. Translation: Trump is a threat to the NY Times, and by extension, all major media—because the Times is usually the first voice that sounds in the news echo chamber that bounces fake stories among hundreds of outlets from shore to shore.

I’m waiting for the term “Russian denialist” to pop up in the press, as a label for reporters who “ignore a mountain of evidence” that Putin hacked the election and handed it to Donald Trump.

“Stay with us. Coming up after the break, a list of Russian denialists who refuse to believe what’s in front of their eyes, say government officials. Some of the names will shock you. But first, six commercials for medical drugs you don’t need that could put you in the hospital…

“The media bubble is the ultimate symbol of what’s wrong with this country. It’s just a circle of people talking to themselves who have no f—ing idea what’s going on. If The New York Times didn’t exist, CNN and MSNBC would be a test pattern. The Huffington Post and everything else is predicated on The New York Times. It’s a closed circle of information from which Hillary Clinton got all her information — and her confidence. That was our opening.” —Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor

The major media’s depth of hatred for Donald Trump is beyond most people’s understanding. Most people can’t fathom it, because they believe they know who these media personages are. They see them on television or read their words every day. How bad could these reporters be?

Very, very bad. The media personages see themselves as 12th-generation feudal barons who are suddenly surrounded by the peasants stealing their land, crops, animals, homes, and royal titles.

Here is what Paul Krugman of the NY Times recently wrote about Trump: “Thought: There was (rightly) a cloud of illegitimacy over Bush, dispelled (wrongly) by 9/11. Creates some interesting incentives for Trump.” —As if Trump might secretly provoke another huge terror attack on US soil and, by his response, improve his status in the eyes of the public. Heavy, heavy malevolent conspiracy theory from a baron at the Times.

Back in February, WND reported on a tweet from another NY Times writer: “A columnist with the New York Times caused a social media stir with a tweet that joked of billionaire businessman and GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s assassination.”

“’Good news guys,’ wrote Ross Douthat in his tweet, as found by ‘I’ve figure out how the Trump campaign ends.’ Douthat is a foreign-policy expert who supports Marco Rubio and John Kasich. He then included a link to a YouTube video of the 1983 movie, ‘The Dead Zone,’ a flick that features Christopher Walken as a character who tries to shoot to death a politician played by Martin Sheen. Sheen’s character uses a human baby to shield himself from the assassination attempt.”

This is the media battling for survival.

Suppose, as rumored, Trump decides to re-cast the whole White House Press Office? Suppose, for example, he intends to deny many veteran reporters their press credentials, and instead welcomes independent journalists?

Suppose Trump decides to establish his own Web channel, and live- streams many fireside chats directly to a global audience, without even letting the press know his schedule?

Suppose the New York Times and the Washington Post fall to the bottom of the pile, left to scramble for crumbs?

Yes, things could get much worse for major media. And they should, because they have been lying to the public ever since the first brick was laid on their first office building.

Trump’s war on the media should become a centerpiece of his presidency. If not, they will shatter his term in office. I hope he understands that fully.

Suppose Trump’s inside man, Steve Bannon, puts his head together with a few deep-pocket investors and shows them how to create strong social-media alternatives to Twitter and Facebook, who are now trying to censor and bury independent online media operations?

Suppose Julian Assange and Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe vault to the top of the press hierarchy?

Suppose the American people laugh the Times and WaPo and CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, and FOX out of court?

Suppose their echo chamber falls apart?

The major media’s fear and loathing of Trump knows no bounds. Their loyalty to Hillary Clinton, who played a central role in the inhuman decimation of Libya, and whose Foundation set up a parallel government stop-and shop for global greedheads, is without conscience.

If you think independent media need your support now, watch what is going to happen in the coming months and years. Big media will keep throwing nasty conspiracy theories like cakes of dreck at the wall, hoping something, anything sticks to “fake news” sites.

These “liberals” are so firmly in the Globalist camp, they wouldn’t know how to escape even if they wanted to. The very notion that America might reassert itself as a sovereign nation is a silver bullet aimed at their vampire hearts.

They’ve been sucking all the blood they can out of this country, with their “kind and gentle” “share and care” con job. It pays for their lifestyles, and they fully intend to maintain their status.

Exit From the Matrix

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

Not quite on the level of George Washington’s Farewell Address or Eisenhower’s last warning to America about the military-industrial complex, here is Obama at his final press conference—tortured logic, generalized garbled garbage, and veiled threats of censorship—looking for scapegoats after the election put a cap on his failed presidency:

“If fake news that’s being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through [domestic] partisan news venues, then it’s not surprising that that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect. It doesn’t seem that farfetched compared to some of the other stuff folks are hearing from domestic propagandists.”

“To the extent that our political dialogue is such that everything is under suspicion, everybody’s corrupt and everybody is doing things for partisan reasons and all of our institutions are, you know full of malevolent actors and if that’s the story that is being put out there, then when a foreign government introduces that same argument, the facts are made up, voters who have been listening to that stuff for years, who have been getting that stuff every day from talk radio or other venues, they’re going to believe it.”

“So, if we — if we want to really reduce foreign influence on our elections, then we better think about how to make sure that our — our political process, our political dialogue is stronger than it’s been.”

Then Obama basically characterized the totality of the WikiLeaks emails as “gossip.” That was his overheated swan song.

He message for the media was: stick to the script; you know what it is; why did you cover material detrimental to The Plan?

“Mele Kalikimaka.”

—So, dear reader, you can choose to obtain your news from purveyors of the Plan, or you can explore and keep exploring independent sources.

What is The Plan? Aiding and abetting the descent of America into a nation swallowed up in a global management system, where the Constitution, freedom, and the individual are relics of a discarded past.

Donald Trump is not The Answer. He never was. A declaration of independence can take many forms, articulated by many individuals, and backed up in different ways.

What’s your way?

      Sometimes you have to wait for the punchline in the cosmic joke….but when it happens, it absolutely the funniest fucking thing you can ever hear. And this one is really really funny.

      thank you, angela, for the important info.
      i take it quite seriously. i gave up my cell phone
      seven years ago for a corded landline. i do not use
      wifi. my computer is wired. i so wish, until the technology
      is made safe and secure, that others would do the same.
      before it is too late. which may already be the case.

      people giving up their cell phones is tantamount to refusing
      to pay taxes. not too many who are willing to go that far.
      sad. it’s another example of feeding the machine that is
      killing and enslaving us.

      sometimes i don’t understand us.

    Jon  I am very much in tune with what you write.  The media is nothing more than noise to distract us from the reality they are hoping we will ignore.  Recently, the media started to repeat another story about a death caused by a Chiropractor.  The media ran with it and made sure that this story was repeated as often as they could afford to repeat it.   In the end, the story was the same ole’, same ole’, crap that has been said of my profession since 1895.  Of course the millions of people killed by pharmaceuticals is never mentioned and there have been many millions killed by their products over the past decade alone, not to mention hundreds of millions over the past century.   Yet, the Chiropractor, is suspected of causing ‘one’ death, the media announces is from every news desk, every television screen and news paper outlet you can imagine to ensure that EVERYONE hears about ‘that’ one death, stroke, questionable reaction, suspicious healing…caused by the quack chiropractor…tsk..tsk.    It is my view, that the media is the cabal, which is one and the same with big pharmaceuticals.  They have through the years bought controlling interest in each of the big name stations, magazines and web sites…all for the purpose of perpetuating their bottom line which is bolstered by subjugating the American public under a medicated haze. 

     It is my hope, my dream that Trump does indeed drain the swamp.  My fear is this, he won’t play ball with ‘them’, the cabal, so he may be in serious danger because of that fact.  I hope he is prepared for their back lash because I am afraid that they are truly dangerous and will stop at nothing to keep their strangle hold on this nation and our politicians.  The swamp is stagnated and foul, it needs to be drained. Rich

      Here’s a start; no drug should be “illegal” if it “harms” fewer people than “legal” ones. Take a look at Portugal, that’s the “drug” policy we should be endorsing.

      Another would be MANDATORY JAIL TIME for people and Pharmaceutical companies pushing poison for profit. How many are doing time for Bextra and similar drugs that were known to be problematic beforehand? None. But there are people doing time for possession of a “joint”.

      Lying scum = DEA

    • Michael Burns says:


      Ah yes RB…

      If it wasn’t for your profession, and a talented chiropracter whom my wife and I were lucky to meet; who was also very proficient in soft tissue…my wife would be in a wheelchair full of prescription painkillers for her severely fractured C3…as doctors predicted this would be her life shortly.
      He, the young chiropractor; keep her body and spine in line, centered and sharing the load, and releaved compounding stress on tendons and muscles and taught me soft tissue massage therapies that are used when ever the going get really tough for her, as the muscles and tendons of her shoulders and neck get knotted up sometimes resulting in painful headaches that can last for days, and stresses compounding from her fractured C3.

      BTW…never believe that because you have car insurance that you are protected. Your not, especially if the two people involved in the car accident are insured by the same company.

      You profession has also work wonders on me RB…I have had a few nasty falls from high places and age now allows me to physically remember them. I have a SI joint that has a tendency to go out also. Sometimes I go crawling in there , only to miraculously walk back out….I thank your profession…and don’t let the bastards get you down.

      A spine and skeletal frame can cause a lot of problems health wise if not aligned properly, hips out of alignment can have lasting problems for young women and children. Jaws and the TMJ factor can cause headaches. My boxing days have caused problems with my TMJ, with a chiropractor an adjustment are simple.

  7. Larry says:

    I lean towards absurdist humor, e.g.:

    I wanted to vote for Hillary….I really did….but I had to vote for Trump.

    All the other candidates’ names were written in Cyrillic.


  8. Jon, I like your conclusion. It is spot on; not as spot on “should be”, but as spot on IS.

    Currently, the whole shebang up to Trump and prior could be summarised by “give us cotton candy because we don’t believe our drains stink”. Two words for you – “non sequitur” That is the “American people” and their bloated politics.

    I cannot resist pulling out another few paragraphs from my most recent article. They need to be read carefully because only the underlying message is topical because it sums up the “way we are”:

    “…At times I can empathise with sentiment along the lines of “You miserable fuckers, I hope your Christmas sucks, because mine’s guaranteed to”, but this piece is all about dreams and hope. I have decided I am going to ride that hope a while longer in my belief that miracles can happen and humanity has more than mere potential. I place my faith, trust and belief and the rest is up to you. Turn my dreams and hope into reality for Christmas.

    “The Beauty of Existence Decoded” is writing largely free of academic references and, as such, completely ignores conventions. I have taken the view that just because Newton said it doesn’t make it true unless it is true. Even so, textual revelations, in their own way, corroborate good practice as much as they attack bad science. “Big picture” concepts can only be understood by the faithful because a lot of parts that make up the picture are impossible to prove (and, in some cases, even experience). To give the analogic example; how can colour be “proven” to ones never sighted from birth? Pragmatism may suggest astral or dream state communications are possible, but, in practically, the sight blind will never verifiably experience colour and, consequential, can only rely on faith to support belief in the spectrum.

    Conversely, the spectrum would never be more than a compelling superstition to blind sceptics. When that analogy is expanded to include vast domains way beyond our sensory perception, it engulfs most conclusive sentiment routinely issued by credentialed scientists. Certainly, anyone seriously entertaining rationalising existence must determine it is everything and not limited to merely what we perceive. Therefore, in order to comprehend existence, faith is a prerequisite. It is the faith requirement that makes “The Beauty of Existence Decoded” all the more hard to read. When factoring in those demonstrable criticisms of the empirics, the book is more likely to have the effect of alienating hard line materialist (atheist) radicals….”

    Here is a short container of NEWS litmus paper slips to test any source in the days ahead… #1 A real investigation of the root of John F. Kennedy’s killing… #2 A very exhaustive look into the bullshit moon shot known as Apollo and the scum involved throughout to this very day…. #3 Every molecule of Lyndon B. Jonson must be shown for what it is…. #4 The monetary system and the reasons for the gold frill’s on the American flag NEED to be a major NEWS story as those systems are brought down…. #5 a COMPLETE Disclosure of EVERY CIA operation EVER conducted ANYWHERE on the planet… #6 The criminal state of israel and it’s evil supporters and architects ALL need to be EXPOSED and tried for crimes so heinous and vile the planet is BLEEDING!… #6 A complete investigation of ANY and ALL aspects of the inside job of September Eleventh 2001 including the jailing and recovery of all assets of ANY participants to be used in support of the afflicted the world round, Americans last.. These should all be topics of request to ANY media you support. All these and many more REQUIRE serious attention. Your just going to have to get your shit together FAST America…. Others can and will do this work if you all fail.

  10. John says:

    My suggestions for the president would be as follows: prioritizing border security, strengthening the US military, providing buffers for all vulnerable electrical grids, auditing the Fed, reducing the budget of the EPA. Having serious discussions regarding term limits, tort reform, infrastructure, ending the Common Core curriculum. Encouraging regular town hall meetings. Eliminating foreign influence in the media, making lobbying obsolete.

    Phasing out entitlements, encouraging and rewarding personal responsibility, paying down the federal debt. Strengthening the currency by backing it up with a tangible commodity or asset. Requiring Voter ID in every state and this becoming the rule of law.

    Every citizen would immediately be mailed a copy of the US Constitution and would receive a small tax credit after reading it and writing a 500 word essay regarding their personal impression of the document. Citizens given tax credits based on their viable suggestions and practical common sense ideas in solving problems within their communities which don’t involve government intervention, especially federal government intervention.

    • John says:

      I better make it clear regarding what I mean about foreign influence in the media. I do not mind foreign countries and or non citizens expressing freedom of speech. What I do mind is having any non US citizens and or foreign governments owning any US media outlets. There used to be a law against foreigners owning any US media outlets. It used to pertain to newspapers as I recall. I could be wrong but remember learning this back in grammar school. I have tried researching this on the web, but it looks like it has been scrubbbed or my memory was incorrect.

      Obviously foreign governments have a huge influence in this country now. I wonder when this became the norm.

    Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2017!

    The behind-the-scenes battle is Trump vs the Bilderbergers, as the New American reported in June 2016.

    Trump won the election, and the vote of the Electoral College today, but the battle continues behind-the-scenes.” The internet, email and financial markets may collapse, but I expect Trump to eventually succeed because he aligned with truth, justice and respect for the inalienable rights of humans.

    The Bilderbergers have little respect for divine rights granted to humans [living on a water-covered planet located exactly one AU (astronomical unit) from a pulsar-centered star] to abundant energy, water and inalienable rights to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    My research mentor, the late Paul Kazuo Kuroda, risked his life to make certain abundant energy was not hidden from the public by the tyrannical world government that took control of the world after WWII.

    May President Donald Trump succeed in restoring these basic human rights to the public.

      Thanks for sharing those links Oliver, and happy 2017 and Merry Christmas to you ! Our inalienable rights are a precious gift.

  13. lophatt says:

    Where to begin? Those who know me realize that I have no problem believing they’re dumb. That said, this is just TOO pat to be a comedy of errors. Obviously, they want to shut us all up. Check!

    They say they want Trump out. Check. Of course, I’m still not convinced that isn’t part of the plan as I’m convinced if they wanted him out he never when have been “in” to begin with.

    It looks as if they have no concern over dividing the country and alienating 50% of the population. I guess there’s a “discount” for being “deplorable”.

    We’ve seen (allegedly) threats to electors and no action taken by DoL, or Obongo.

    We see these “hacking” allegations and when they are addressed, the “media” demand “proof” that it isn’t so. That’s novel.

    On top of this, nobody is mentioning the fact that the emails, both the handling and the content stand on their own merit. Putin didn’t make her do it.

    Basically, they are saying “how dare you run for office if you’re not one of the Kool Kidz?”

    Lastly, they are talking of establishing a “shadow government” who’s purpose will be to ridicule and obstruct Trump during his whole time in office.

    No one is asking me but I’m going to say it anyway. Trump (if he’s the real deal), must not get sucked into this. They should refrain from do the “tit for tat” with the prestitutes and simply state what I just did, consistently. “Hillary committed the crimes, I didn’t”. “I doubt very much that Russians ‘hacked’ anything. It looks like a leak to me”. “Do you have proof? Even if you prove it, she made herself unelectable”. “You’re making the allegations, I have no obligation to believe”.

    No, every time they go on one of those shows and spar with the prestitutes they cheapen themselves. They have to stop that. I would remain calm, refuse to answer to them and arrest them if necessary. If they physically prevented me from exercising my office they’d be wearing orange.

    The meltdown of the communist left is worth electing Trump.
    Voters voted for a raging capitalist businessman hoping he will streamline a bloated inefficient government and open up the economy by gutting useless regulations, excessive taxation and Castrocare.
    They didn’t vote for a messiah or daddy.
    Let the communist left continue shooting itself in the foot and doubling down on everything that cost HillyBilly the election.
    Don’t give them any help, don’t tell them any strategy tips, let them flail away while filling your popcorn bowl.

    But, Rappoport, you must have read the “dialogue” between Christ and the Inquisitor in the Brothers Karamazov.
    If not, read it.

    The first error made by free people, with their — I mean our — lack of the instinct of conformism and indifference to power is to not understand that we are minorities’ minority, candles in the dark covering truth.

    Our mind isn’t an example of the healthy normal mind of a social animal, which man is, has to work.

    Freedom and truth aren’t part of the system. The aims are others.

    Yes, the Internet allows many truths to be said, but what % you think the readers of those sites are? Then consider what % of those sites’ readers really see the underlying picture (not a high one).

    The rest is hypnosis, as you say.
    It will one day be replaced. There is always replacement: of hypnotizers and of the contents of hypnosis.
    But the illusion of… what? Power shared with evebody? Equal real dignity for everybody? Shared decisions? Actually moral decisions?

    That’s a jocularity. I believe your wish for all of it is sincere, and so was mine for most of my past years. But the time comes you have to accept that things as your strange mind would love them to be are one thing, and things as they are are another.

    Like when you say: who’ll program robots’ values? Who’ll instill in them the sense of justice, fairness, …?
    The answer is: those with the more power: as IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN, and will be until this very noble, cute, lovable species will grace the earth and its other inhabitants with its presence.

    “Right”, “true”, … in the world of humans and on their mind, they all equate to power.
    The rest of the human speech is an hypocritical, but highly functional for their needs, translation.
