We have heard so much of late about all the “fake news” that the alt-right organizations are supposed to be spreading hither and yon out there that it has almost become ludicrous. If we believe the Ruling Establishment’s paranoid ranting we will accept as gospel truth everything that the Washington Post or the New York Times puts out there and we will automatically distrust everything that The Drudge Report, InfoWars, WorldNet Daily and a whole host of others publish. We might even be tempted to doubt what I am writing here! This is a classic Marxist tactic called “Condemn others and elevate yourself.” In other words you are doing the same thing you accuse others of doing but you did it first–and then complained about them doing it so you could seize the moral high ground and appear clean when actually you are dirtier than those you accuse.
Thanks to the fact that many people are finally starting to wake up and see what goes on it’s getting harder for the mainstream media to push this agenda, but push it they still do, because not enough people have laughed in their faces yet to convince them it isn’t working anymore. That day will come, and it won’t be a happy one for the prostitute press
The truth of the matter is that those who have been putting fake news out there for decades now (the mainstream media) are now accusing their competition of doing the same thing in an effort to shut them down because people have started paying attention to what the alt-right has to say. I’m not saying that the alt-right is perfect or that they even always get it all right, but you get scads more truth from them than you ever will from the mainstream media who have been bought and paid for literally for generations.
And there are serious questions out there as to what constitutes “fake news.” In fact, you could say that “fake news” is a concocted reason for federal censorship and you wouldn’t be far off the mark, if at all. I recently read an article from http://www.christianpost.com by Samuel Smith, the title of which was Fake News: Is Religious Liberty at Stake? The title of the article is a good question–and most who read this will already know the answer.
Mr. Smith writes, in part, “As the world’s largest web companies are being pressured to crack down on websites that produce ‘fake news,’ there are growing concerns that efforts to censor what is deemed to be fake news could have a negative impact on religious news websites that report from a conservative or biblical perspective.” That is a valid concern. Smith notes: “The term fake news has been circulated by the media and Hillary Clinton following her defeat to President-elect Donald Trump in the Nov.8 presidential election, with many accusing so-called pro-Trump fake news sites of having a decisive impact on the outcome of the election.” That gives you some idea of where the current use of the term originated–and that fact alone should tell you something. I mean, after all, it’s not as if Hillary Clinton never lied to the public! She has been promoting prolific windys for years to further her career and, somehow, the “news” media just never seems to notice.
Ron Paul, who ran for president in 2012 and had the Republican Establishment basically steal votes from him in various states so they could promote that weak sister, Mitt Romney, who was supposed to lose to Obama, has also commented on this. In an article on http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org for December 11, 2016, Mr. Paul observed: “The latest and potentially most dangerous threat to the First Amendment is the war on ‘fake news.’ Those leading the war are using a few ‘viral’ internet hoaxes to justify increasing government regulation–and even outright censorship–of Internet news sites. Some popular websites such as Facebook, are not waiting for the government to force them to crack down on fake news.” That’s because the agenda of some of these sites is identical to that of the government.
And Ron Paul further notes that: “The war on ‘fake news’ has taken a chilling turn with efforts to label news and opinion sites of alternative news sources as peddlers of Russian propaganda…There have also been calls for congressional investigations into Russian influence on the elections. Can anyone doubt that the goal of this is to discredit and silence those who question the mainstream media’s pro-welfare/warfare state propaganda?” Well no, Ron, no reasonable person can doubt that, but then we are talking about the federal government here–at this point under the control of a Marxist Regime that will do anything and say anything to make sure the New World Order crowd maintains control and stifles true liberty. That’s what the Obama Regime is all about. And if they can find some convoluted, quasi-legal stratagem to deny Trump the presidency they will do it in a New York heartbeat! That’s where we are at this point i time.
A brief article on http://www.infowars.com recently stated that: “…indeed, the globalists are thinking of ways to keep Trump from getting in office 11 days from now. Jeh Johnson of DHS federalized all the elections in a letter sent out recently. They would only do that, knowing Trump will reverse it, to have the apparatus in place to prevent him from taking over. This is 21st century warfare, but the good news is that the public is not buying it.”
Paul Craig Roberts, writing about this same subject in a short article on http://www.lewrockwell.com on January 10, 2017 said: “The disturbing question is: Why do it now after Trump’s election? Could there be a plot to rescind Trump’s election on the basis of the ongoing lies that Trump was elected not by the voters but by Russian interference? Federalization can be used to remove the states from the picture and prevent the states from challenging an establishment coup against the voters.” Read that last statement over again.
So the entire “Russian hacking” story is being reported not only to discredit Trump, but so the feds can insert themselves into the election process in a way hitherto almost undreamed of by ordinary folks.
Think about this–every time you have a “terrorist attack” it gives the government more excuses to restrict our liberties. That’s what “terrorism” is all about today. It’s the old “pressure from above and pressure from below” game. I have written about that before some may recall.
We should all pray sincerely–and continually–that the Lord will be pleased to toss a few monkey wrenches into the machinations of the New World Order program–of which “fake news” is a large part at this time.
