Trump Suspects FBI and Fake News Media Were Colluding To Derail His Campaign


President Trump took to Twitter last night to share his suspicions that the FBI and the mainstream media were colluding to derail his campaign in 2016.

“Why was the FBI giving so much information to the Fake News Media?” Trump wrote.

“They are not supposed to be doing that, and knowing the enemy of the people Fake News, they put their own spin on it – truth doesn’t matter to them!” the President added.

Trump then followed up with a further tweet addressing Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who sent virulently anti-Trump texts and vowed to stop him becoming President.

Trump called Strzok, who was appointed to Mueller’s investigative team, a “sick loser”:

The President added a third tweet, reminding his followers that Strzok worked for “Slippery James Comey” and that he is “best friends with Robert Mueller.”

Trump’s tweets come in the wake of his former advisor Roger Stone revealing that an alleged FBI informant posing as a Russian agent offered to sell damning information on Hillary Clinton to the Trump campaign for $2 million, an offer that was flatly rejected.

The man, Henry Greenberg, had worked as an informant for the FBI until 2013, but denies he was still working in the role at the time of the meeting with Stone.

“If you believe that [Greenberg] took time off from his long career as an FBI informant to reach out to us in his spare time, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I want to sell you,” Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo told the Washington Post Sunday.

Trump defends North Korea summit, trashes media: 'We got so much for peace in the world'

As other politicians prepared for Sunday morning talk shows, President Trump circumvented the traditional press circuit once again by tweeting a blue streak on the North Korea summit and, from his perspective, the media’s failure to properly acknowledge his successes.

He repeatedly defended the highly publicized meeting in Singapore last week with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un against criticisms that it was primarily a spectacle that yielded few tangible results. Trump said Kim agreed to stop testing nuclear weapons and rockets and to return hostages.

Trump specifically pushed back against Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who said on the Senate floor that the summit was more show than substance. To make his point, Schumer used an old Texas phrase “all hat, no cattle” but got the order wrong — hence, “all cattle, no hat.” Trump, not one to let the mistakes of his opponents slide, quoted the error back to Schumer while defending the summit.

Trump claimed there was “a coordinated effort” among news outlets to insist that Trump gave up “sooo much” in the negotiation process by meeting with Kim, and he said they focus on this point because they have nothing else to criticize. He also elaborated on his proposal for the United States and South Korea to stop running war games in the region, which he called needlessly provocative and expensive when trying to conduct negotiations in good faith. Pyongyang has long asked for an end to the war games, which are joint military exercises to prepare South Korean and American forces for the possibility of actual warfare.

Trump suggested that the agreement to denuclearize the Korean peninsula is being celebrated throughout Asia and that only political partisans in the United States would rather see this deal fall through than see the president succeed — even if it saves millions of lives.

Throughout the morning tweets, Trump boasted about how well the economy has been doing under his watch, claimed that he has a wonderful relationship with German Chancellor Angela Merkel despite news coverage, and reiterated his accusation that Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is a witch hunt.

How the entire mainstream media was SUCKERED by a fraudulent feminist CEO pushing fake science

Image: How the entire mainstream media was SUCKERED by a fraudulent feminist CEO pushing fake science

(Natural News)
Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes was, at one time, on top of the world: With her (now disproven) new blood testing tech, she was heralded as a “female Steve Jobs” and the mainstream media simply couldn’t get enough of their new feminist-approved icon. It’s got to be a long, hard fall from such a high pedestal — and Holmes certainly knows a thing or two about that, now that the fraudulent tactics used to garner her company’s success have been exposed.

The company touted their advanced blood testing techniques that would require substantially less blood for hundreds of different types of tests; medical professionals and investors alike were chomping at the bit to see the day they could run a full blood panel with just a finger-stick. But, as it turned out, the product was just too good to be true. But how did one woman fool so many people?

Wall Street Journal investigative reporter John Carreyrou first began asking questions about Theranos and their “innovation” just a few years go in 2015 — 12 years after the company was founded. In his new book, Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, Carreyrou reveals that the company had been in trouble from the very beginning.

One of the first signs that the technology promised by Theranos was not what it seemed came at a 2006 meeting in Switzerland. Holmes and her team gave pharma giant Novartis a product demonstration — but as Business Insider reports, then-Chief Financial Officer Henry Mosley noticed that other Theranos employees didn’t seem very excited about showing off their product.

According to Carreyrou, this is because their blood testing tech didn’t always work — and to mask that problem, they had prerecorded results to display during demos for investors. Mosley questioned if this is what happened at the Switzerland meeting. In the book, Carreyrou writes of the 2006 incident:

Mosley couldn’t get a straight answer from anyone, but he now suspected some similar sleight of hand. And he was right. One of the two readers Elizabeth took to Switzerland had malfunctioned when they got there. The employees she brought with her had stayed up all night trying to get it to work. To mask the problem during the demo the next morning, Tim Kemp’s team in California had beamed over a fake result.

Mosley tried raising the issue with Holmes, but reportedly said she didn’t seem to care about the company’s fraud. This became crystal clear when Mosley was fired for bringing up the dummy test results in front of investors.

Eventually, the now-disgraced startup founder would be charged by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for committing “massive fraud” involved around $700 million. In early 2018, SEC levied their charges against Holmes, fining her to the tune of $500,000 and banning her from leading a public company for the next 10 years.

As sources explain, Holmes was ruthless in her efforts to preserve the company’s image and was hellbent on ensuring success — even if it meant lying to investors and the public. Carreyrou says that after Holmes learned of his investigation, she had him followed, and even tried to get the The Wall Street Journal to quash his earth-shattering story.

In addition to Holmes’ own acts of deceit, the fact remains that until Carreyrou came along, no one was really questioning her products. Even after Theranos had to void two years of test results due to inaccuracy, the media remained faithful to their hopeful star; Holmes wanted to be the female Steve Jobs — and the feminist media was willing to give her that title at any cost, and without any proof.

Indy media journalist Sharyl Attkisson posts jaw-dropping list of media LIES and mistakes about Trump

Image: Indy media journalist Sharyl Attkisson posts jaw-dropping list of media LIES and mistakes about Trump

(Natural News)
In case you’ve ever wondered why most conservatives say that the mainstream media is now an appendage of the Democratic Party, here’s your answer: Fair, impartial journalism that focuses on the facts has been replaced by an insatiable, all-out effort to discredit and destroy the president of the United States.

The media, which Trump once correctly labeled as the “enemy of the people,” has made it abundantly clear that they are more than willing to say just about anything if it means taking down the one man that was able to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Earlier this month, Sharyl Attkisson – who decided to step away from her job at CBS back in 2014 after becoming frustrated with the network’s Left-wing bias – published an entire list of instances where the lying, fake news media attempted (and ultimately failed) to take down Donald Trump. The list contains a total of 50 eye-opening “mistakes,” and while it’s certainly worth reading in its entirety, here are the top five.

“Donald Trump didn’t pay his income taxes”

Throughout his entire presidential campaign, the liberals in the media were obsessed with Trump’s taxes, arguing without any evidence whatsoever that he hadn’t paid his fair share. However, as Attkisson wrote in her article, “tax return pages leaked to MSNBC ultimately showed that Trump actually paid a higher rate than Democrats Bernie Sanders and President Obama.”

How embarrassing it must have been for the mainstream media to find out that, contrary to the narrative they had perpetuated for months, Donald Trump had paid more than their liberal friends in Washington DC. (Related: Here are the six biggest mainstream media fails and cringe-worthy moments of 2017.)

“Donald Trump’s path to the White House is non-existent”

Most Leftists in the media, including Stuart Rothenberg of The Washington Post, “reported” that Donald Trump could not possibly become the 45th president of the United States because it was an electoral impossibility. Even on election night, liberal media networks like CNN and MSNBC were all reporting that Hillary Clinton had a 99 percent chance of winning, which was obviously an effort to discourage and intimidate Trump’s supporters. As we all know, these attempts proved futile and the former Secretary of State suffered a major defeat in 2016. (Related: The purpose of the mainstream media is thought control and suppression of the truth.)

“Trump fired Comey over more resources to investigate Russia”

Immediately after Donald Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey, multiple liberal news outlets, including Politico, The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, and the Associated Press, reported that Trump had fired Comey because he had requested additional resources to further the investigation into Russian interference in the election.

However, as noted by Attkisson:

The Justice Department, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said the media reports were untrue and McCabe added that the FBI’s Russia investigation was “adequately resourced.”

“Comey never told Trump that he wasn’t under investigation”

Big names in the liberal media, like Gloria Borger, Eric Lichtblau, Jake Tapper, Justin Fishel and Jonathan Karl, all reported that James Comey was planning on refuting Donald Trump’s claim that Comey told Trump on three separate occasions that he was not being investigated. Instead, Comey did the opposite and confirmed that what Donald Trump had said was true.

“Poland’s First Lady refused to shake Trump’s hand”

Part of the media’s ongoing efforts to discredit Trump includes making him look as bad as possible on the global stage. Newsweek’s Chris Riotta and several others claimed that Poland’s First Lady had refused to shake President Trump’s hand, even though a full video of the exchange shows that the First Lady did shake his hand. Newsweek was forced to publish an “update” and correct their “mistake.”

Mainstream Media Confirms Conspiracy Theory That Walmart Stores Are Being Turned into Prison Camps


When citizens began to ask questions about why Walmart stores were suddenly closing in in southern states in 2015, the mainstream media insisted that the closures were due to plumbing problems and that any suggestion of government involvement was a crazy conspiracy theory. Three years later, the MSM is finally admitting that several of those Walmart stores were converted into detention centers, which now house immigrant children who have been separated from their parents.

At least 1,500 boys are currently being detained in Brownsville, Texas, where NBC News reported that they “spend 22 hours per day during the week (21 hours on weekends) locked inside a converted former Walmart,” where at least five boys are packed into rooms built for four. Many of those in prisons across the United States get more yard time than these children.

The boys range in age from 10 to 17 years old, and the average stay at the center is around 52 days. If the idea of imprisoning young boys as if they are felons for two months’ straight sounds agonizing and cruel, that is because it is. A small group of reporters was allowed inside the facility, and the report from NBC claimed that guard asked them to smile at the hundreds of detained migrant kids in line for a meal because ‘they feel like animals in a cage being looked at.’”

 A report from ABC News also noted that the detention center in Brownsville “was once a Walmart,” and while it claimed that the facility was “clean and well-staffed, with activities to keep the kids busy and their minds off their unfortunate situation,” it also noted that this was “a media tour, and journalists weren’t allowed to interview any of the children.”

“Where there were once racks of clothes and aisles of appliances, there were now spotless dorm-style bedrooms with neatly made beds and Pokémon posters on the walls,” the New York Times reported, noting that the converted Walmart store is now the largest licensed migrant children’s shelter in the country, but failing to point out that it was one of many stores that mysteriously went out of business when President Obama was still in office.

At the time, citizens became concerned when a number of Walmart stores mysteriously went out of business in Texas, Oklahoma, California, and Florida starting in April 2015. The mainstream media and its “trustworthy fact-checker” were adamant that the closures were due to plumbing problems, as Walmart claimed, and that there was no government involvement.

However, the reality that the former stores are, in fact, being used by the government, and that they are being used to imprison migrant children who have been separated from their parents, made headlines recently when Senator Jeff Merkley attempted to enter the converted Walmart in Brownsville, and he was denied entry by police.

“When I was at the center at McAllen Border Station, this is the processing center, earlier and I was admitted there and I did see the people, hundreds of children locked up in cages there at that facility, Merkley said in an interview with CNN. “They have big cages made out of fencing and then wire and nets stretched across the top of them so people can’t climb out of them.”

While it is not clear whether any of the children in the detention center in Brownsville are being kept in cages, it is clear that the government worked diligently to keep facts from the public.

The young children who are forcefully separated from their parents are treated like prisoners and taken to detention centers where they are forced to live among hundreds of other children they have never met. The lifelong consequences can be detrimental, and in some cases, these children will never see their parents again.

The individual cases are horrific, and Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal recently shed light on her experience visiting a facility near Seattle where she met with more than 170 women who were taken into custody near the southern U.S. border.

“Thirty to 40 percent of these women came with children who had been forcibly taken away from them. None got a chance to say goodbye to their children—they were forcibly taken away,” Jayapal told The Nation. “One said she was deceived because they were in detention together. Then the CBP officers told her she was going out to get her photograph taken. When she came back, she was put in a different room, and she never got to see the child again. Some of them said they could hear their children screaming for them in the next room.”

A father from Honduras, who came to the United States with his family to seek asylum, was so distraught after he was separated from his wife and child that he killed himself while he was left alone in a jail cell last month.

In another case, a mother from Honduras who came to the U.S. seeking asylum with her family said she was breastfeeding her infant at a detention center when her baby was suddenly taken from her with no warning and no explanation.

A former employee of one of the detention centers is now speaking out after he said he quit in protest after he saw how horrific the process was for the children. Antar Davidson said he watched young children being “ripped from their parents” and sent to a detention center, where in some cases, no one spoke the same language they did.

Davidson claimed the facility was understaffed, the employees lacked the proper training, and as a result, the children were “extremely traumatized.” He also said the workers were underpaid, while “the CEO and his wife clear more than a million dollars a year in mostly federal tax money and undercut the services we need.”

“It’s a basic private prison deal in the guise of this shelter,” Davidson said. “So the people at the end of the day, when they have to put the kids to sleep have already worked an eight-hour shift and are often times asked to stay overtime. On top of that, these kids are running up and down the halls screaming, crying for their mom, throwing chairs. Everyone is tired. The under-trained staff is dealing with an increasingly traumatized population of minors.” 

As The Free Thought Project has reported, while there have always been people seeking asylum in the U.S. from other countries, it should be noted that the “War on Drugs” in the United States has contributed both to violence in the countries immigrants are seeking asylum from, and an increase in drug trafficking over the border that has resulted in all migrants being treated like criminals.

Former Congressman Ron Paul noted last year that the War on Drugs has “produced no benefit to the American people at a great cost,” and “just as with the welfare magnetthere is an enormous incentive to smuggle drugs into the United States.”

There is also the troubling concern over what is happening to the immigrant children who are separated from their parents. While the idea of an innocent child being locked in a cage is troubling, it is not the worst fate many of the children are subjected to. The Health and Human Services Department recently admitted that nearly 1,500 immigrant children have gone missing, and many of them are suspected to have been kidnapped by human traffickers.

Watch Davidson’s interview below:

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

The role of the Israeli media in the mass brainwashing of citizens

By Uri Avnery

It’s frightening. Unprincipled psychologists, in the service of a malignant regime, use sophisticated techniques in order to control the mind of a person from afar.

The term “brainwashing” was born in 1950. It is a Chinese word (xinao, literally wash brain). Originally, it served to describe a technique used – so it was claimed – by Chinese masterminds to manipulate the minds of American prisoners in the Korean War. They changed their unconscious mental processes and turned them into agents of sinister forces.

Many books and movies purported to show how this works. For example, the classic film, The Manchurian Candidate, shows how the communists take an American prisoner-of-war in the Korean war, an officer, manipulate his mind and give him an order to kill the US presidential candidate. The American officer does not know that he has been turned unconsciously into a communist agent. He does not remember the order given to him under hypnosis and does not know that he acts accordingly.

This plot is ridiculous, like most of the pseudo-scientific descriptions. In practice, it is much easier to manipulate the minds of people, individuals and collectives.

For example, the Nazi propaganda. It was invented by Adolf Hitler himself. In his book, Mein Kampf, he describes how, as a soldier on the Western front in World War II, he witnessed the extremely successful British propaganda. The British dropped leaflets over the German trenches and shattered the soldiers’ confidence in their leadership.

When Hitler came to power in Germany, he entrusted one of his faithful henchmen, Joseph Goebbels, with the creation of a Ministry of Propaganda. Goebbels turned propaganda into an art form. Among other means, he turned all the German media – newspapers and the radio – into government agencies. In German that was called Gleichschaltung – connecting all components to one electric line. Thanks to this, Nazi Germany continued fighting long after it was clear that it had lost World War II.

One of the means was the disconnection of the German public from any other source of information. The official propaganda was blared from every medium. Listening to a foreign broadcast was a major crime, punished severely.

Thus, it happened that the Germans still believed in their final victory – the Endsieg – even after the Soviets in the East and the Anglo-Saxons in the West had already crossed the borders into Germany.

Does it take a dictatorial regime – Nazi or Communist – to turn the media into a brainwashing machine? Common sense says that this is impossible in a democracy. Common sense is wrong.

A brainwashing machine

It will be remembered that Hitler attained power by democratic means. Even now, fanatical nationalists are winning democratic elections in many countries. All their leaders are busy destroying the courts, stuffing the parliaments with useful idiots and – especially – turning the media into brainwashing instruments. In our country [Israel], too.

How is this done? It’s quite simple, really: one has to suppress all other voices. One has to make sure that the citizen hears only one voice. One that repeats a few messages over and over, endlessly. This way the lie becomes truth.

In such a situation, the ordinary citizen becomes convinced that the official line is really their own personal opinion. This is an unconscious process. When one tells a citizen that they are brainwashed, they are deeply insulted.

The events on the Gaza Strip border have activated a mechanism of brainwashing that dictatorial regimes in the world can only envy.

This has been happening in Israel over the last few years. The citizen is not conscious that it is happening. He or she absorbs diverse newspapers, TV programmes and radio broadcasts, and sees that all these media are freely arguing with each other and even quarreling with each other. The citizen is not conscious of the fact that on the one critical subject of our life – war and peace – all the media are “connected” to one singular line of brainwashing.

During the last few weeks we have been seeing a perfect example of this mechanism. The events on the Gaza Strip border have activated a mechanism of brainwashing that dictatorial regimes in the world can only envy.

Let’s examine ourselves: what have we heard over the radio? What have we seen on TV? What did we read in the papers?

Within a few weeks more than a hundred human beings were shot dead, and many thousands were wounded by live fire. Why?

“We were forced to fire at them because they were storming the border fence.” And indeed, did the Gazans themselves not proclaim their will to “return home” – meaning, to return to Israeli territory?

But on 14 May, “Black Monday”, 63 unarmed demonstrators were shot dead and over 1,500 wounded by live fire. Every Israeli knows that this was necessary because the demonstrators stormed the fence and were about to swarm into Israel. Nobody paid attention to the simple fact that there was not a single photo showing such an occurrence. Not even one. In spite of the fact that on both sides of the fence there were hundreds of photographers, including Israeli army photographers, who filmed every single detail. Tens of thousands stormed, and not a single picture?

The “terror” propaganda tool

One should notice the use of the word “terror”. It has turned into an adjective attached to everything. There are not just tunnels – they are all always “terror-tunnels”. There are “terror-activists”. There is “the Hamas terror-regime” and there are “terror-bases”. Now there are “terror-kites”.

Notice: not just “incendiary kites”, or “destruction-kites”, only “terror-kites”. The same every day in all media. Someone has made the terminology decision. Of course, everyone who has the word “terror” attached to his name is “a son of death”, as you say in biblical Hebrew. Another proud term of the brainwashing.

The inhabitants of the Gaza Strip are “terrorists”. (In Hebrew, a special term has been invented: mekhablim). All of them? Of course, No, no no question. Especially Hamas members. But Hamas is a political party, which has won democratic elections in all of Palestine. A civilian party which has indeed a military wing. But in our media all party members and supporters are “terrorists”, sons of death. Of course.

The use of these terms, hundreds of times every day, clearly constitute brainwashing, without the citizens noticing it. They are getting used to the fact that all Gazans are terrorists, mekhablim. This is a process of dehumanisation, the creation of Untermenschen in the Nazi lexicon. Their killing is allowed, even desirable.

There is no argument about the fact that all the demonstrations along the Gaza fence were completely non-violent. The demonstrators did not shoot one single shot, when thousands of them were wounded by live fire, and more than a hundred killed. Yet the lie passes without comment.

In such an atmosphere, even abominable sentences pass unnoticed. For example, this week I heard on one of the TV news programmes this sentence from the mouth of a military correspondent, speaking about the coming Gaza demonstration: “Iran wants dead demonstrators, and it seems that they will get them.” One has to read this sentence twice to realise what it says: that the Israeli sharpshooters serve Iranian interests.

Or a sentence that is repeated again and again, even by respected commentators: “Iran wants to destroy the state of Israel.” I don’t know what 80 million Iranians want, nor does the writer. But the sentence itself is ridiculous. Israel is a nuclear power. How does one annihilate a nuclear power (with submarines that can launch nuclear devices in the hour of need). Are the Iranians ready to turn their country – one of the cradles of human civilisation – into a graveyard and a desert?

Or a forecast “Friday another violent demonstration will take place”. “Violent”? “Another”? There is no argument about the fact that all the demonstrations along the Gaza fence were completely non-violent. The demonstrators did not shoot one single shot, when thousands of them were wounded by live fire, and more than a hundred killed. Yet the lie passes without comment.

Cogs in the lie machine

Not a single one of the hundreds of TV news programme presenters ever corrects such statements by correspondents. Because the directors, presenters, commentators and correspondents are themselves thoroughly brainwashed. The army spokesman knows the truth, of course, but he is a central cog in the brainwashing machine.

Events reached a climax with the murder of the 21-year-old female paramedic Razan Ashraf al-Najjar, when she was trying to save the life of a wounded demonstrator. The sharpshooter who shot her in the chest saw that she was a medic treating a wounded person. It was a clear war crime.

Was there a public outcry? Did the media demand an investigation? Did the media report this event in their page one headline? Did the Knesset observe a minute of silence? Nothing of the sort. A minor news item in some papers (by no means all). An excellent article by the admirable Amira Hass in Haaretz. And that’s that.

One of the hallmarks of brainwashing is a phenomenon that everyone can notice: the total absence of a second opinion.

A few days passed, and abroad there were outcries. The Argentine soccer team, with the admired Messi, cancelled a friendly game against the Israeli team in Jerusalem.

The brainwashers realised that it was impossible not to react. So, the army spokesman published a statement saying that an investigation had taken place. What did it discover? Ah, well. It was clearly established that nobody had shot Razan. She was hit by the ricochet of a bullet that had hit the ground far from her. That is such a blatant lie that even the army liar should be ashamed of producing it. It was accepted by the brainwashed public.

One of the hallmarks of brainwashing is a phenomenon that everyone can notice: the total absence of a second opinion. When a commentator voices the official line on an event, does anyone express an alternative version? Is there a debate between the official spokesman and a contrary commentator? In the democratic media, that would be commonplace. Here it is very, very rare.

What can be done to counter such brainwashing?

Not much.

Little hope

First of all: there is a vital need for a second voice. Brainwashing can be efficient only when the official voice enjoys a complete monopoly. That was one of the aims of Haolam Hazeh, the weekly which I edited for 40 years. It met every untrue government version with a contrary version. Although our voice was weak, compared to the powerful government machine (even in those days), the very fact that there are two voices, however unequal, prevents a total brainwashing. The citizen hears two versions and wonders “who is right?”

If all the peace and human rights groups in Israel set up a joint center for information, which will be heard, perhaps the monopoly of official propaganda can be broken. Perhaps.

There is in the country a tiny band of commentators who are not afraid to tell the truth, even when this is considered treason. Gideon Levy, Amira Hass and a few others. We must ensure that their voice is heard. They must be encouraged.

The power of the truth against a brainwashing machine is always limited. But in the end, even if it takes time, truth will prevail. It needs courage.

All the media must be pressured to present a variation of views on matters of war and peace, to let the “internal enemy” be heard, so that the citizen is able to form an opinion of their own.

The foreign media must be allowed free access to the sources of information, even when the foreign media are critical, “hostile” and “anti-Semitic”. Friends of Israeli-Palestinian peace abroad must be encouraged to pressure the media in their homelands to publish the truth about what is happening here.

I don’t like the word “must”. But in this context, no other will do.

The power of the truth against a brainwashing machine is always limited. But in the end, even if it takes time, truth will prevail. It needs courage.

The movie, The Manchurian Candidate, has a surprise ending: in the last minute, instead of killing the presidential candidate, the brainwashed man shoots the communist agent who was supposed to take his place.

No MSM Coverage at Bilderberg Despite Packed Roster of Media Figures


Nearly one-tenth of the official Bilderberg 2018 participants roster is comprised of media figures, yet mainstream press is nowhere to be found outside the event.

At least a dozen out of 131 attendees directly represent newspapers, monthly publications and television networks, but there is no discernible media presence outside the confines of the heavily-guarded NH Lingotto hotel in Turin, Italy.

While a handful of independent journalists have trekked from around the globe to provide coverage of the annual meeting of international elites, the MSM is staying far away – which is strange behavior for a group that would be swarming the city if the confab was instead attended by top athletes or celebrities.

The list of prominent media figures this year includes:

Applebaum, Anne (POL), Columnist, Washington Post
Caracciolo, Lucio (ITA), Editor-in-Chief, Limes
Fallows, James (USA), Writer and Journalist
Gruber, Lilli (ITA), Editor-in-Chief and Anchor “Otto e mezzo”, La7 TV
Micklethwait, John (USA), Editor-in-Chief, Bloomberg LP
Minton Beddoes, Zanny (GBR), Editor-in-Chief, The Economist
Noonan, Peggy (USA), Author and Columnist, The Wall Street Journal
Osborne, George (GBR), Editor, London Evening Standard
Patino, Bruno (FRA), Chief Content Officer, Arte France TV
Skartveit, Hanne (NOR), Political Editor, Verdens Gang
Yetkin, Murat (TUR), Editor-in-chief, Hürriyet Daily News
Zeiler, Gerhard (AUT), President, Turner International

Additionally, many of the business moguls present are either directly or indirectly linked to media corporations.

As The Guardian reports (from afar), “Scratch an industrialist at Bilderberg and you will find a media magnate. Antti Herlin, the Finnish delegate who runs Kone Corporation – ‘a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry’ – also happens to be the vice-chair of the company that owns the daily newspaper Helsingin Sanomat. And yet with all these media representatives, we will learn little of what is said in Turin.”

Tech tycoon Elon Musk recently tore into “big media companies,” inferring that they are controlled by “powerful people” who have weaponized them to the spread disinformation, leading some to believe that he may be on the verge of exposing the ‘man behind the curtain’ – a move that would send Bilderbergers and their media allies into a tailspin.

Sean Hannity, Joy Reid, and the Liberal Media’s Free Press Phobia

Sean Hannity (full disclosure, I write columns at his website) was in the middle of his Thursday night live television show on Fox when there was, as they say, breaking news – from The New York Times. The news?

The Times had just posted a story saying the Justice Department had seized the phone records of a New York Times reporter. And in an instant, there was Hannity looking America in the eye and defending The New York Times. A reporter’s sources, he reminded, are off limits. No small matter for Hannity himself who has developed many of them in the course of his investigations into the Trump-Russia collusion business.

Eventually more of the story came clear. The Trump Justice Department had been investigating one James A. Wolfe, the former Senate Intelligence Committee’s director of security. Wolfe has now been indicted, reports the Times: 

The former aide, James A. Wolfe, 57, was charged with lying repeatedly to investigators about his contacts with three reporters. According to the authorities, Mr. Wolfe made false statements to the F.B.I. about providing two of them with sensitive information related to the committee’s work. He denied to investigators that he ever gave classified material to journalists, the indictment said.

The plot soon thickened. The Times again: 

“The seizure was disclosed in a letter to the Times reporter, Ali Watkins, who had been in a three-year relationship with Mr. Wolfe.” 

In short? Wolfe  – mind you his title was “Director of Security” for the Senate Intelligence Committee – stands accused of betraying national security to a lover who was also a reporter for the Times. A sticky and infuriating wicket indeed.

But let’s stick to the point. Which is, literally the second Hannity heard of the government moving on a reporter’s private phone records, learning midstream of his live television show, he spoke up on the spot for a free press.

Now let’s recall another several instances of attacks on a free press. Recently Fox’s Laura Ingraham was assailed for a tweet about one of the students from the Florida high school that was the site of a school shooting. The Left howled for her head – and The New York Times and the liberal media was silent on the attacks.

Earlier the attacks had been directed at Hannity, with demands he be silenced by losing his show.  And the liberal media was silent on the attacks.

Going back through the last decade there were demands for Rush Limbaugh’s head. And Lou Dobbs when he was the conservative at CNN. Before that it was Glenn Beck when on Fox. And in every case, the liberal media was stone cold silent at the attempts to silence these people.

Most recently was the Roseanne contretemps. Yes, indubitably she tweeted a racist tweet. She was gone from ABC in a nano second. But Joy Reid? All kinds of homophobic and other garbage seeped out about the MSNBC host and there were demands for her head. Who came to her defense? Hannity – who issued this statement: 

Over the last few days the conversation surrounding the comments made by TV personalities has dominated the news cycle. We have covered them as well, going over previous tweets, statements and on air opinions. One of these individuals, MSNBC’s Joy Reid, has now apologized for her previous blogs and commentary.

It’s good to see Joy (who is no fan of mine) starting to take responsibility for her past remarks. My suggestion is that she follows up with the groups and people who she offended, and learn from all of this. Her apology should be accepted, and she should be given a chance to make it right, and not fired.

Someone needs to take the lead in cable news and stop the “crush, fire them, and destroy hosts you may disagree with” environment. I guess as the number one rated host in cable, I’ll start.

I am grateful for this microphone and the platform given to me everyday by my audience. I am a believer in the freedom of speech for all Americans. I am also a believer in second chances. And as someone who believes in forgiveness, I have to say, we have all fallen short.”

The statement speaks for itself.  But there is more here. 

When one broadens out the focus on a free press and the constitutional right of both a free press and free speech, one is struck by the repeated determination of the Left – in the media and out – to quite selectively shut down what they don’t like. 

A classic example of how this works was recently provided by You Tube commentator Dave Rubin. He appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show to discuss his recent appearance at the University of New Hampshire. What happened was also picked up here at Red State and described this way: 

Rubin was interrupted by a black woman sitting in the crowd, who had apparently brought a jar with metal objects inside of it. While Rubin was speaking, she would shake the jar and make noise enough to attempt to drown out or throw Rubin off. This caused Rubin to focus on the woman, and attempt to engage her. After attempting to pull a conversation, or allow her to ask a question, she said nothing and continued to shake the jar. It was then that Rubin called her out.

“I’m seriously willing to have a conversation right now. But you won’t question me and you won’t tell me you didn’t like something. Who’s winning right now? Who’s changing more minds? Me or you?” 

The woman made no response, but continued to shake the jar. This prompted Rubin to dismiss her, saying he made his point.”

On – and on – went this episode, all captured in video. But of course, what happened to Rubin is not a stand alone. There was Charles Murray – who was physically attacked in a successful effort to shut down a Middlebury College speech.  Then this with Ben Shapiro at Berkeley, as reported by the Daily Caller

The University of California, Berkeley ended up spending roughly $600,000 to ensure that protests didn’t turn into riots Thursday night when conservative commentator Ben Shapiro spoke on campus.

And, of course, the repeated efforts to shut down Ann Coulter when she speaks somewhere in what is nominally thought to be the land of the free. I must report that last fall I was invited to give a speech at my alma mater, Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on a proposed college speech code. I was invited by the College Republicans and I was there to oppose the speech code idea. The auditorium was packed, I gave my speech with no problem there was a vigorous Q and A. But what struck me was …the college felt the need to assign me four security guards for the duration of my presence on campus. Security for a speech about free speech. Amazing.

All of this is of a piece and it all revolves around the central issue of a free press and free speech.

What is, shall we say, “curious” – or maybe not – is the Left’s hypocrisy on all of this. CNN makes much of not attending the traditional White House Christmas party for the press because they supposedly are standing up for a “free press” in the Trump era. But when others – conservatives – in the press are the subjects of moves to silence them – be that Hannity, Ingraham, Limbaugh, Dobbs etc etc etc – CNN falls mysteriously silent.

And no, the fact that Hannity and Ingraham work for competitor Fox is not an excuse. Because the Times cannot abide conservative X is no reason to be situational on their rights to participate in a free press or exercise free speech. For the elementary reason, among many, that they could be next. Suddenly, they are next – and now its one of their own who is under attack. And who defends the Times? Hannity.

What we are seeing from the Left across the board – whether the target is a media personality or a campus speaker or a reporter – is an assault on freedom. And the hard fact here is that conservatives are willing to stand up regardless of the target – while liberal media types play the dangerously selective game that inevitably translates as “freedom for me but not for thee.”
