Back last year I did an article about Newt Gingrich, where he made the comment to someone that: “We fought a Civil War to insure one national sovereignty, the federal government” or words to that effect. Without even realizing it, Newt had given out the real reason for the War of Northern Aggression–the centralizing of power in the hands of an Elite in Washington and the denigrating of the concept of states rights. No doubt some in the Fake News Media picked up Newt’s indiscretion and just ignored it–as they hoped the rest of us would.
Well, this time the Fake News Media has made a flub of rather significant proportions, which they are probably hoping most folks don’t pick up. Some of us did, though. As part of an article by Shepard Ambellas, for February 22, 2017, on http://www.infowars.com there was a video (it should still be there if you want to go see it) showing MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski talking to Morning Joe, saying that President Donald Trump is “trying to undermine the media” and she says “that it’s the establishment press’s job to ‘control what people think’.” So, according to her, it’s not just the news media’s job to give us the news and let us make up our own minds, it’s their job to control what we get and what we think about it. In other words, the establishment media is in the mind control business and reporting actual news has hardly (if anything) to do with it.
Brzezinski told Joe Scarborough, in part, that “If the economy worsens (Trump) could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think.” But “That is our job,” Brzezinski shamelessly admitted without hesitation. Brzezinski’s co-panelists didn’t even bat an eye at her comments and carried on to further bash Trump.” The fact that no one even called her on this statement shows that, among these “news media” people, this is the prevailing mindset. Their job is to control what we think and they have been getting increasingly frustrated of late because a large segment of the public has finally seen through them and their credibility is way, way down. Trump was amazingly accurate in a recent press conference when he told the “news” people there that “Nobody believes you anymore.” He noted that approval ratings for the media were even below those for Congress, and the last time I checked, approval ratings for Congress were in the single digits.
After decades of blatantly lying to the public, the public has finally started to see how the game is played, and they’re not buying chips in that game anymore. And that has to frustrate the media people who have used the mind control game to enhance not only their power but the power of their Establishment friends and their agendas.
And as the show wore on (and on) Scarborough actually called for the “legalization” of illegal immigration. He said “We have an economy, let’s face it, we have an economy that is built on illegal immigration.” I’m sure lots of folks would disagree with that assessment. No doubt lots of Establishment folks have built their businesses using illegal immigrants because they usually worked cheaper, but that’s hardly the whole economy.
We need to be reminded that a main part of the job of what many of us call “the Prostitute Press” is exactly what Ms. Brzezinski let slip out in this video–their agenda is to control what we think, both by spinning the “facts” a certain way and also by making sure that certain things in current events that would mess up their employer’s agendas get left out of the narrative and, therefore, go unexposed. I have watched the media at certain events I have been involved in over the years and this is exactly the way they work. They have a kind of “all the news that fits” mentality.
However, it is refreshing that, once in awhile, one of these people actually slips up and lets the truth out about what they are really doing–even more reason to doubt their credibility–if they still have any.
