What Chuck Schumer is revealing out in the open

What Chuck Schumer is revealing out in the open

by Jon Rappoport

April 26, 2017

Senator Chuck Schumer on MSNBC (via ZeroHedge): “We’re no longer fact-based. The founding fathers created a country based on fact. We don’t have a fact base. If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.”

First of all, in Schumer’s opening sentence, who is this “we”? There is an implication that the “we” is somehow monolithic and centralized. But people have been in disagreement about facts and what they mean since the dawn of time. People have rejected centralized sources of facts, from kings and queens and priests, to newspapers and television news.

In the same way that 99% of economists assume society must be planned and centralized, Schumer and “the people in power” assume media must operate as a centralized force—as if it’s a natural law.

They just assume it, because until recently, it was the case, it was cozy and easy. But not now. And they’re angry and shocked. They see their foundation of propaganda and mind control slipping away.

You must appreciate how secure they used to feel. It was a cake walk, a picnic in the park. The definition of “fact” was: whatever centralized media said it was. What could be simpler? And to them, that was “democracy.”

Feed the people lies, hide deeper truth, slam dunk.

Then along came independent media.


It turned out millions of people were interested.

The cat jumped out of the bag.

I know about this. I’ve been letting cats out of bags since 1982.

That’s longer than some of my readers have been alive.

I also know about censorship, because almost from the beginning of my work as a reporter, I had stories turned down by major media outlets and even alternative outlets. I saw the handwriting on the wall.

Chuck Schumer is echoing what many of his colleagues—and far more powerful people—are worrying about. Their vaunted mouthpieces, the NY Times, the Washington Post, etc., are failing. They can’t carry the same old freight with impunity.

So Schumer “worries about the future of democracy.” What he’s actually worried about has nothing to do with democracy, and it certainly has nothing to do with a Republic, which was the form of this nation from the beginning.

Schumer is worried about decentralization.

He’s worried that people are defecting from the authoritarian arrogant Castle of Truth.

And, given his position, he should be worried.

We are at a tipping point. Needless to say—but I will say it—independent media need your support. Your choice about where you obtain your news makes a difference.

Until a few years ago, I never considered that I was relentless. I was just doing my work. But as I saw the counter-efforts of major media, social media, government, Globalists, and other players, as they tried to reassert their primacy, I found a deeper level of commitment. A person can find many reasons to stop what he is doing. Every person eventually realizes that. But will he give in? Or will he decide to keep going? My choice is reflected on these pages, where I write every day.

Many of my colleagues have made the same choice. As for myself, I take the long, long view. Whatever befalls this civilization, the individual survives. He cannot be erased. I know that as surely as I know I am sitting here.

People like Chuck Schumer are living on a foundation of sand. Their power depends on obfuscation and deception and exchanging favors. When they feel the ground shifting under their feet, they growl and accuse and declaim and resort to fake ideals. If they see their con isn’t working and isn’t selling, then they panic.

Which is a good sign.

Many, many years ago, I had a good relationship with a media outlet. Then one day, the man in charge told me I was “positioning myself” outside the scope of his audience. I was speaking to “different people,” and therefore I should “go my own way.” I could tell he wasn’t happy about saying this, because he thought of himself as an independent, but there it was. He was bending to the demands of “his people.” So we parted company.

I was now further “out there” than I had been before. I was “independent of an ‘independent’ media outlet.” It took me about five minutes to see the joke. A good and useful joke.

As the years rolled on, I kept finding myself in a more independent position, which meant I was writing what I wanted to write, and in the process I was discovering deeper levels of what I wanted to write.

Understanding this changed my political view. If I didn’t stand for the free and independent individual, what did I stand for? If I didn’t keep coming back to THAT, what could I come back to?

It made sense to me then, and it makes sense to me now.

This is why I keep writing about collective, the group, the mass, and the generality, those fake representations of life.

The individual is always free, whether he knows it or not. And therefore, he can choose.

This is what the Chuck Schumers of this world vaguely apprehend on the horizon. They can’t believe what they’re seeing; it’s too horrible a prospect. They reject it as a fantasy. A random nightmare.

But it isn’t a random nightmare.

It’s the potential for an open future.



Back from obscurity.

Back from the late 18th century, when the ideas embedded in the Constitution reflected the desire to unleash the free and independent individual and afford him protection from the powers-that-be.

    I don’t recall if I have commented to you before, if not great work I have been reading y our work awhile our daughter had a stroke after vax. Well done.

  5. Oliver K. Manuel says:

    Thank you, Jon, for this report of Senator Chuck Schumer’s admission, We’re no longer fact-based.”

    Since frightened world leaders agreed to Stalin’s demand to unite nations and national academies of sciences under the UN on 24 Oct 1945 to “save the world from possible nuclear annihilation,” . . . a simple logical error by Weizsacker and Chadwick in 1935:


    became the foundation for the UN’s one-world totalitarian control of all humanity with a consensus scientific matrix of deceit that isolated humanity from REALITY (God):


  6. Marta Mallory says:

    I couldn’t agree with you more,Jon. I love reading your articles! Thank you for telling it LIKE IT REALLY IS!

  7. From Quebec says:

    Real alternative medias exist, like Jon Rappoport and Alex Jones and others..

    I am so happy that Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson are criticising Trump daughter and her husband. And, also what the military industrial complex is doing to Trump.

    This is the sign of real people, who can see the good and bad things that Trump is doing.

    The vidoo is not on youtube, but you can watch it in the link below:

    Must watch:


  8. YB Normal says:

    “Chucky” Schumer, and his ilk, are fantasy-based. He’s scared of losing his power. He’s the wizard behind the curtain pulling the levers of illusion and deception and afraid his audience will find out that he’s just another deceiver and a nobody. The only power such individuals have is in the power their audience gives them. And this audience is rapidly awakening to the fact that they’ve been deceived by these charlatans for far too long and are leaving the theater in droves.

    Giving them any audience whatsoever just prolongs their sick, sorry existence and our agony. Their audience completely ignoring them would be their worst nightmare. I, for one, would never miss hearing or seeing anything from Chucky for the remainder of eternity – except on the day of his judgement before the Creator. I sure would relish being witness to that. In the meantime, good riddance Chucky! Don’t let the door hit you in your ass.

  9. Spot on, Jon.

    Good article.


  10. Bill says:

    “The founding fathers created a country based on fact.” ….. “If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.”

    That Schumer claims knowledge of anything to do with America’s ‘founders’ is what we should “worry about”

  11. Greg C. says:

    For Chucky baby, a fact has to go through a process of pasteurization, homogenization, and government inspection before it can be safely consumed by the public. But then he goes and pisses in the milk bucket of history, saying that the founding fathers created a country based on fact. Yeah, that’s why they met in secret to draft the constitution, and took secrecy oaths to never discuss the proceedings. That’s how they got around the law of the land, the Continental Congress, never submitting their work to them, nor to the state legislatures, but to their own special state conventions which they controlled. Taking the common phrase “united states” and using that term to mean their new centralized government. The Founders were brave, intelligent men of foresight, but they certainly weren’t big on disseminating facts to the public while they were “creating a country.”

  12. Ram raider says:

    Hold on, News does not have to tell the truth, assuming facts are one and the same. Least that was what the highest court in the US decided a few years back.

    News is a ‘Show’ and the News-papers in sporting terms bowl leg breaks, off spinners, slow left arm Chinaman and of course posses a Beauty of a cover drive.


  13. Ram raider says:

    So if it changes take the Mainstream boys to court, it was back in 2003 BTW.


  14. SFWhite says:

    I wrote an article a couple of days ago on this very subject!

    Censorship by Google, FaceBook and Twitter Is A 1st Amendment Violation!

    Schumer and his ilk are schooled in Alinsky’s “rules for radicals”. Ergo they attack independent news sources, attempt to isolate them, and denigrate them. Notice how Schumer smears independent news sources as un-American by implying that the founding fathers would disaprove of them? When a politician attempts to rally me to his side by such arguments as wrapping himself in the American flag, claiming the Constitution supports his position, or making other appeals to patriotism, I run the other way. It’s a rare thing indeed when they are telling the truth, defending the Constitution, defending liberty, and obeying the law.

  16. BRF says:

    The MSM and who it represents lost those who care to think and seek truth quite awhile back. The cat can never be put back in the bag with these people but they can be driven underground by an absolutely corrupted state using its powers of legislation,coercion and violence, of whom Schumer and the MSM are prime examples of cheerleaders for this system. But what of those who do not care? They will be used against the independent thinkers. These folks are the uneducated in critical assessment. We see their comments at Info Wars or in their participation in the orchestrated protests over Trump’s tax returns or Black Lives Matter. Notice these protests have quieted as of late as Trump has been brought into the fold more closely now that he has become a political being rather than remaining on the sidelines as a businessman [sic].

    Whatever transpires in the near future we can expect more of the same only more so and the attack on independent media to become much more severe in tone and actions

  17. Reblogged this on amnesiaclinic and commented:
    I like David Icke’s, “The cabal are shitting bricks”…

  18. working class zero says:

    Chuck Wagon prattling on about Trump’s budget is great comedy.
    Under his watch the debt ballooned to $20 trillion.
    No budget was ever passed during the Chicago Jesus error.
    I’m still laughing about his greatest thespian of all time cousin Amy Schumer crying to Netflix because she got roasted and N.F. changed the review format.
    These people live in an ivory tower fairytale detached from reality bubble and really do wonder why they aren’t 50 points ahead in the polls.

  19. tonybinid says:

    Schumer and his ilk are such punks. Their house of cards is coming down and they cannot stop it. Clif High’s ALTA reports are showing this more and more over the next year or so. I can’t wait to p** on the grave of corporate media!

  20. Valery Vebelfeltzer says:

    “If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.”

    You’re right Chucky, no one should consider the NYT as being a credible news source.
