Many observers would agree that the biggest loser in the recent U.S. presidential election was not Donald Trump, it was the media. The news that was presented to the American public amounted to a tsunami of negative reporting on Donald Trump buttressed by opinion polls that turned out to be poorly executed and wrong by a huge margin. Some might argue that Trump got what he deserved as he was a bad candidate and a bad man, but the unwillingness of the media to pursue stories detrimental to Joe Biden, particularly the corruption surrounding son Hunter, demonstrated a reckless disregard for admittedly unpleasant facts that might have changed some votes.

As an honest media is essential to the proper functioning of a democracy the issue of the politicization of the Fourth Estate is perhaps more serious than who eventually wound up being elected. The degradation of the traditional media, exemplified by the shameful reporting on the Russiagate fiction, has unfortunately come at a time when the new media, i.e. the “internet” is also undergoing transformation. Though some Americans continue to believe that when they go “online” they will get a free flow of useful and factual information that will guide them in making decisions or coming to conclusions about the state of the world, they are increasingly finding only spin or misdirection.

The conceit that the internet would bring with it alternative viewpoints challenging the status quo might have been true to an extent twenty years ago, but the growth and consolidation of corporate information management firms has instead limited access to material that it does not approve of, thereby successfully shaping the political and economic environment to conform with their own interests, and, increasingly those of the federal government. Facebook, Google and other news and social networking sites now all have advisory panels that are authorized to ban content and limit access by members and threats from Washington about regulating the companies and their offerings keep everyone toeing the line.

The United States government, riding a wave of Donald Trump inspired complaints about fake news, has itself been increasingly engaged in suppressing viewpoints that it objects to. The first major attack on foreign media operating in the United States came in 2017, when Russian government news sites Russia Today (RT America) and Sputnik were compelled to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938. U.S. intelligence agencies had stated in a January report that the stations, which broadcasts on cable and over radio in the United States, are part of “Russia’s state-run propaganda machine” and that they had contributed to the Kremlin’s campaign to interfere in the 2016 presidential. That was of course untrue. Based on the report, the Department of Justice compelled RT America and Sputnik to register under FARA, which inter alia requires the disclosure of financial information.

The United States has moved to criminalize what it considers propaganda by foreign adversaries through its 2017 creation of the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force (FTIF) in the bureau’s Counterintelligence Division. The Justice Department claim that both the Russian sites were agents of the Kremlin might appear to be fair enough, but it was noted at the time that many other government-supported foreign news services operate freely in the U.S. without having to declare themselves “agents” and the U.S. itself openly operates propaganda sites like Radio Free Europe overseas without any hindrance.

Since that time, Washington and the media have also been beating the familiar drum that foreigners are interfering in American politics, to include Russia, the Chinese, and the Iranians. In August a 77 page report produced by the State Department’s Global Engagement Center (GEC) on Russian internet based news and opinion sources was released. It claimed that the Russians were guilty of spreading disinformation and propaganda on behalf of the Kremlin. Its full title read “Understanding Russia’s Disinformation and Propaganda Ecosystem” and it included a lead paragraph asserting that “Russia’s disinformation and propaganda ecosystem is the collection of official, proxy, and unattributed communication channels and platforms that Russia uses to create and amplify false narratives.”

Perhaps not surprisingly, The New York Times is hot on the trail of Russian malfeasance, describing the report and its conclusions in a lengthy article “State Dept. Traces Russian Disinformation Links” that appeared on August 5th. The Times described how the government report identified a number of online sites that it claims are actively involved in the “disinformation” effort. The Times article focuses on one site in particular that this author writes for, describing how “The report states that the Strategic Culture Foundation [website] is directed by Russia’s foreign intelligence service, the S.V.R., and stands as ‘a prime example of longstanding Russian tactics to conceal direct state involvement in disinformation and propaganda outlets.’ The organization publishes a wide variety of fringe voices and conspiracy theories in English, while trying to obscure its Russian government sponsorship.” It also quotes Lea Gabrielle, the GEC Director, who explained that “The Kremlin bears direct responsibility for cultivating these tactics and platforms as part of its approach of using information and disinformation as a weapon.”

Russia has, of course, been falsely accused of supporting the election of Donald Trump in 2016 and the existence of alternative news sites funded wholly or in part by a foreign government is not ipso facto an act of war or even particularly aggressive. Also, the claim that the Strategic Culture Foundation was and presumable still is a disinformation mechanism is overwrought. Yes, the site is located in Moscow and it may have some government support but it features numerous American and European contributors in addition to Russians. Its content is generally speaking antiwar and often critical of U.S. foreign policy but the contributors include conservatives, libertarians and progressives who write on all kinds of subjects.

The latest attack by the U.S. government on an alternative media resource, involves the American Herald Tribune (AHT), which was launched as an alternative news site in 2015. Canadian Professor Anthony Hall, serves as the Editor in Chief of the site. Hall currently lives in Lethbridge Alberta Canada and is a Professor Emeritus at the University of Lethbridge. The name and internet domain base of the site were set up and initially funded by Iranians whom Hall had encountered on one of his several trips to Iran. The news site is admittedly highly critical of American foreign policy and of Israel, which also means that it is supportive of both Iran and Syria. It is strongly opposed to the United States initiating a war with the Iranians. Its contributors include myself as well as scores of writers from the Americas, Europe and Asia and articles have appeared on a wide range of topics.

AHT first came under pressure in February, based on a cyber-security report that alleged that the site was one element in a large disinformation network being run by the Iranian government. The story was picked up by CNN and The Washington Post, with a Post review of the CNN information claiming that though AHT masquerades as a self-professed “’genuinely independent online media outlet’ …cybersecurity experts have determined [it] is part of a far-reaching Iranian influence campaign. The strategy is simple: create a network of inauthentic news sites, then enlist associated accounts on popular platforms to spread the stories not only here but also in Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. American Herald Tribune’s modus operandi matches what we’ve already learned about online disinformation: Adversaries ‘launder’ their campaigns through sympathetic citizens of target countries, or just citizens they offer money to — from authors on propagandistic or outright deceptive news sites to run-of-the-mill social media users.”

The cybersecurity company that wrote the damning report cited by CNN is based in California and is called Fire Eye. It reportedly has numerous contracts with the federal government and its assessment about the Iranian disinformation network provided nothing in the way of actual evidence nor did it actually name AHT, though there has been an independent unsupported claim that AHT was founded in Iran. Fire Eye also rated its “assessments” in the report as being presented with “moderate confidence.” In government-speak, that means that the conclusions are mostly speculative, not based on hard evidence, and do not require further action.

Prominent investigative journalist Gareth Porter has also described the social media censorship AHT has endured. His June report maintains that the FBI had encouraged Facebook, Instagram, and Google to remove or restrict ads on AHT specifically. In 2018, AHT’s Facebook page was deleted and its Instagram account was closed.

If the allegations regarding AHT’s role in a larger conspiracy sounds similar to the false charges made against Russia post 2016, they should, as they come out of the same script of “foreign interference.” The CNN coverage of AHT should have been seen as a warning that more was to come. On October 7th the Department of Justice took decisive action when it “…seized 92 domain names that were unlawfully used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to engage in a global disinformation campaign… According to the seizure documents, four of the domains purported to be genuine news outlets but were actually controlled by the IRGC and targeted the United States for the spread of Iranian propaganda to influence United States domestic and foreign policy in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), and the remainder spread Iranian propaganda to other parts of the world. In addition, the seizure documents describe how all 92 domains were being used in violation of U.S. sanctions targeting both the Government of Iran and the IRGC. We will continue to use all of our tools to stop the Iranian Government from misusing U.S. companies and social media to spread propaganda covertly, to attempt to influence the American public secretly, and to sow discord…”

On November 4th the Justice Department seized an additional 27 alleged IRGC supported domains. The AHT was included in the seizures and the site is now down. All of AHT’s accumulated articles archived in the domain are also inaccessible.

What is happening here is an effort by the U.S. government to suppress any news source if it can be plausibly linked to a foreign government that is unfriendly. At the present time that basically means Russia, China, North Korea and Iran. To be sure, AHT publishes authors with dissenting views, who frequently criticize U.S. foreign policy towards Iran in particular and also regarding the Middle East more generally. But to make the case against AHT and the other alleged Iranian disinformation sites, the Justice Department had to claim that the funding for the network was coming from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Force, an organization that it has conveniently labeled as “terrorism supporting.” It is a tenuous argument on all levels, but the real damage being done is to the First Amendment right, Freedom of Speech. The ability of Americans in particular to obtain up-to-date and reliable information has been eroding for twenty years or more while the claim that “foreigners” providing alternative viewpoints to small audiences are destroying democracy is ridiculous as there is no evidence that anyone was radicalized by anything through what he or she was hearing or seeing. If Joe Biden’s administration continues to move in the same direction as Donald Trump and the mainstream media itself self-censors to go along with the charade, there will be very little freedom left when the next national election rolls around.

    All these charges of foreign disinformation could be ACCURATELY leveled at Israel. The evidence of Israel’s meddling, nay, control over American elections is overwhelming. That’s how Sanders was sabotaged (again) and two absurdly underperforming Israeli puppets installed in the White House. The evidence for Israel’s control over American foreign policy is overwhelming. And the evidence for Israel’s control over America’s corporate media is overwhelming. This latest wave of transparent efforts to kill freedom of speech in America is obviously emanating from Israel. More precisely, it is emanating from the banking mafia that controls both Israel and Wall Street, and through Wall Street, America’s press and politicians. Its immediate goal is to silence all criticism of Israel’s barbaric policies and actions, and to keep Israel’s control hidden from Americans. The same is happening in England, with the fake accusations of “anti-Semitism” used to take down Jeremy Corbyn.

    Wow, thank you for alerting. I don’t even see how this is legally possible. Having Google or Facebook deplatform you is one thing, and a form of private censorship, but when the government gets directly involved it’s a clear violation of the First Amendment. A new line in censorship has been crossed if I’m not mistaken. It must be challengeable in the courts, no?

    I think, more importantly, propaganda is a critical pillar of any empire. If you can’t control “the message,” you can’t have a world sprawling empire, because every four years, some aspects of the empire’s conflicting interests will come under scrutiny from some lackey vying to become its titular head.

    That’s the reason this year’s presidential campaign saw no discussion of foreign policy in the first world-spanning empire; this time, the establishment wasn’t going to allow its policies to be voted on by the masses, especially as its candidate had very unpopular cards to play on that count.

    To the extent that any of the western news outlets were ever “free” before, after the last four years, no one can plausibly claim that anymore.

    My point is that our freedoms, which include a free press are inversely proportional to the size of empire we are running; this is a necessary condition for having an empire.

  5. This is further proof that however it dresses itself, the yankee regime represents fascistic tendencies. Perhaps any new website should take the advice of El Dato (2) above on the location of their domains, etc.

  6. In late 2016, President Obama issued an Executive Order that legalized spy propaganda aimed at the domestic population, something that had before been illegal.

    It’s a fact that the US is moving towards totalitarianism – and that totalitarianism is incompatible with a free press . Editors get instructed on what articles to write each day, the topics to cover, and the points to be emphasized. In other words, there’s a background political bureau that determines the party line, and which accounts for the remarkable similarity of MSM headlines.

    An interesting question is whether the US is following Germany’s Volksgemeinschaft path into totalitarianism or Russia’s Bolshevik Dictatorship of the Proletariat route (to use the two classic 20th century examples of totalitarianism).

    The answer seems to be the Bolshevik route. The Volksgemeinschaft explicitly put majority German ethnic interests ahead of all others (with their claimed superiority) both nationally and internationally. In contrast, the Dictatorship of the Proletariat was a manufactured dialectic of class war (victim classes vs. exploiter classes) headed by a small minority revolutionary “leading cadre” of radical Jews.

    The close match is with the Bolshevik variant. Check the US media’s current victim class/exploiter class dialectic – with no difficulty guessing which is which – or the identity of the small minority “leading cadre” directing the coup.

    for far too long I have been trying to get the people to entertain the idea that the US Constitution needs to be changed. to reverse the parties to whom it serves from Oligarch to Governed.

    During the British colonial occupation: America was exploited by the British government for the Benefit of British domestic investors in profits derived from America agricultural and commercial activities. After the American Revolution in 1776, the British Corporate power in America, and those with massive British Estates given to them by Foreign Queens and Kings (<=whole states, with the power to govern everyone living in them, there were), and the Aristocratic owners of British corporations operating in America were rendered nearly powerless against America Democratic independence(1776-1787). So in 1787 the British power remaining in America invented by ratification a new idea in revolution, and re-installed by it (<= the ex Land Grant Aristocracy and British monopoly and Corporate power ). The constitution of the United States of America. reestablished defeated British Aristocratic and corporate powers to ex British America.
    instead of the British government protecting the British Corporations and Aristocracy in America, the USA would be the government established to protect Aristocratic and Corporate power.

    So how should the Constitution be re purposed to serve the governed masses? I have argued that the governed masses should be made into independent Auditors of the functioning government including all of its arms and legs. I have argued that a separate (<=human rights) court should be established to prosecute all who serve in the scope of government activities. So a citizen would bring a charge against the conduct of someone within the scope of government, and the court (<=human rights) would investigate, adjudicate and punish guilty parties. Basically human rights courts would guard the rights of the governed to a corruption free government.

    But is there a loose end: <=could it be the six person owned private media monopoly? So how should that be handled? Well the US Courts have worked our this idea of Tort. Tort, as I understand it, its is liability for damages established by the failure of a responsible party to maintain activity, behavior or presence in accord with reasonable expectation of care or accommodation. Such liability attaches to negligent or intentional disregard, when the responsible party fails to protect against foreseeable occurrences or harms. Tort courts enforce against such failures by awarding damages to injured plaintiffs. IANAL.

    So can injured parties recover for damage caused by media or its content? Is this possible in the courts of the USA. The standard should require all public media, no matter its public or private ownership, without exception or exclusion (the scope of potential defendants), to meet that standard of care, norm of behavior or security of activity. Public media is no different, IMO, than a public shopping center, airline, taxi service or commercial business activity that involves the public. Audience exposed content anywhere, by a public media, should be able to expect the truth and the media should be held to the truth as a standard of care. (: When claimants submit their Tort case against public media, the court would, award damages, when the facts, fail to support the truth, or when media fails its public media duty to the public. Content and presentations to audiences must meet the standard of truth, and media must meet its public duty to grant access to all on a fair and equivalent basis.

    So what is a public media.. The best measure I can think of is advertising. I would suggest that any media that is supported by third advertising, is a public media, and the exposure by media to any audience of a content by any public media, opens the media to standards of accommodation, behavior, or care.

    IANAL, but likely neither the FCC or its Congressional benefactors could exempt public media from liability for damages caused by a failure of Truth in presentation by a media or by its delivered content.

    If I were ex president Trump or any victim of a public media, i would ask my lawyers is it possible to recover in tort, for damages caused by untruthful or misleading content delivered over public media? Is our society so backward, our judicial system so weak, that it cannot make well those damaged by public media and their content providers?

    This good advice can be generalised almost without limit. You are censored by social media? Don’t use it. You do not get the truth from mainstream media? Don’t buy it, and don’t read it. US or Western financial institutions won’t serve you? Stop using them.

    Now if a foreign country (i.e. not the USA nor one of its obedient slaves) sets up one or more Web sites using a domain within its own national namespace and servers hosted on its own territory, the only way for Washington to prevent Westerners from reading it would be to censor the Internet – essentially setting up a “Great Wall of America”.

Hence here at unz.com, where no technicalities discussion, systemic overview, can be discussed or is propped by any of the pieces. The only thing that trickles down in today´s economy is the bloat of the middle classes in the media and meta-data media control sectors. It could well be the Achilles heel of the system as it functions today. The maintenance of control must look increasingly costly and fragile to the power elites. They would and (Covid) does, gladly “reset” that part of the economy. Luckily the middle class attitudes are suicidal, they do not seem to notice their expendable status at the horizon.

    The contributors are certainly a mixed bag from the well informed ( eg Patrick Armstrong) to political cultists ( LaRouche Movement ) to the laughable Wayne Madsen . The strategy seems to be: throw enough criticism and vituperation and hope some sticks. However, the loonies tend to detract from the serious critics. So maybe not a good idea.

    I am gravely more alarmed that main stream websites and content publishers do not allow people to criticize blacks in any manner. The word “black” has been scrubbed from open public discourse in the West unless it surrounded by the blasts of trumpets and loads of confetti.

    Blacks who kill, beat, rob and burn down buildings are immune from rebuke or even a mild retort. The Press refuses to acknowledge that blacks are the scariest group of people in the States.

    An entire fictional narrative about blacks is being constructed, and no one can challenge it, other than American Renaissance. And it appears Jared Taylor does that by holding off any criticism of the Jews. His own private Faustian bargain.

    But you are worried about a website funded by Iran being censored? The Power Brokers in Iran are a song with one note. They hate America and Israel. We get it.

    Iran will leave the States alone if they are left alone. Their propaganda can be ignored. Israel and Iran can do their deadly dance in the miserable scorching sun until the end of time.

    The old TV/radio monopoly of ABC, CBS, and NBC were always “fake news.”

    People who grew up watching television and believing it was real are like children who watched professional wrestling and never realize it was staged.

    This is selective enforcement of the laws as Israel has dozens of propaganda organs throughout the U.S. both large and small yet the FBI does nothing. It just goes to show who controls the FBI or that FBI agents know which lines they can’t cross and which special interests aren’t to be trifled with.

    The British Empire never cared for censoring that much as they had determined that the soldiers’ opinions had next to no influence on their real obedience and performance in danger situations. Most establishment figureheads were known to be proud to impervious to opinion and even like to make decisions against all prevailing currents. Quite the contrary, they had come the the conclusion that letting everybody speak gave more latitude to the employers and higher officers to choose whom they liked, and those they liked were not the most loyal. Radical left was definitely overliked as it was then synonymous with industrial discipline and contempt for the colonial cultures they combated most. The only ones to censor were the radical left itself, in its own media, and the anticolonial nationalists.

    It seems to me, that the media has always been political. There have always been Republican/conservative and Democrat/liberal newspapers and radio stations. Unity of thought was achieved during war time, but would separate after.
    There was a slow concentration of that media. The advent of television increased the pace of concentration and since the 1990s (if not before) has become a psy-op. This concentration has increased with the number of “interventions” claiming that the US is under threat of being invaded by countries like Nicaragua, Vietnam, Iraq or Iran. There always has to be a “BIG” boogeyman, whether the evil Naht-zees or the Communists, as if Germany, which couldn’t get a surface fleet out of the Baltic, or the USSR with the massive loss of life and damage to its infrastructure in WWII were ever a real threat of invasion. In short, the US has had a war time media for decades. It has been like ice cream. Regardless of flavour, it’s still ice cream. That morphed into news as entertainment, where the presenters had to be photogenic, but brainless. That has shifted into not just brainless entertainment, but outright propaganda.
    The concentration is so great, not just in the US, but world wide through interconnected corporations, entities, and personal relationships (some would say tribal) has come to the point that there is zero credibility in any of the MSM.

    This blog is upset because USA Democracy continues off course and getting worse for 75 with its worst tendencies driven by the GOP — and some of the GOP’s current functionaries like McConnell have been at it in the same role for 40 years.

    The Office of the President is the most deeply personal medium of the nation.

    Trump has been lying his ass off, he lies TREMENDOUSLY, INCREDIBLY, he’s THE BEST LIAR WE HAVE EVER HAD bar none.

    But everyone on this site is bitching that because of — insert: wild-conjecture-of-vast-electoral-fraud indistinguishable from lying — that the failure of a pathological lying President should be redeemed into a second term for the sake of the honestly of the nation.

    Isn’t it odd how since 2000 when USA enemies want to screw with popular mindset they do it by feigning GOP Randite ideology. Look at Russia Today. It functions like FoxNews.

    The only thing the “right” wing doesn’t
    want is anyone working together outside of oligarchic silos.

    This site purports to be alternative views, but no alternatives are presented. It’s back to National Review and Weekly Standard. You just don’t have a Grand Old Dame like Buckley on TV to guide the spewing of the bullshit. No one here has those chops, but even if they did they would have to speak lite cause that old shit stinks. Look at heir of Bill Kristol and Master of Civility David Brooks sliming around his high-rise in NY. He and NYT masthead editorializing are owed to the same roots as here.

    It will be impressive to see anyone here start to find others to work with to build coalitions of opinion for the public good rather than spew the shit in which little poisonous mushrooms of hatred flourish, which reading the comments here they are sprouting all around with no one lifting a finger. Sad.

    This elections’s degree of corruption is no more than par with the previous, and probably is less than 2016 simply because so many people we free to vote by mail. The GOP hates anything that opens up participation because the GOP’s political job is to exclude people from governance and pull the whole field away from popular involvement. This is in keeping with the nation’s heritage of power and is very good for business that relies on slave labor

    So look at the comments here and note the little mushrooms of ignorance sowed and cultivated into hatred of teh jew teh darkie ohhhh the last white real man in America

    Hi Art. So true. Even Fox has caved–though Tucker, Hannity, et al remain defiantly pro-Trump.

    As an alternative to Fox, I recommend Newsmax.com. It’s TV app is available for FREE. Newsmax is, sadly, always pro-Zionist (like Fox and all the TV nets) but at least it’s solidly pro-Trump. It’s also conservative (pro-White) in the simmering culture wars.

    Today, Newsmax called N. Carolina for Trump. This is news. Newsmax is still covering the election like a long-distance horse race. Our as-yet undetermined election is genuine, ongoing news. Yet this drama (like the Biden crime family scandal) is being widely ignored by the ‘President-elect Biden’ crowd–who just happen to dominate our media.

    True enough; but back in the day, the Congress took control of the new electronic media, arguing that they were operating as a public trust. Thus, for example, the Fairness Doctrine, which required balanced presentations of even editorial content (hence the invention of the “op-ed” page, i.e., the page opposite the traditional editorial page). PBS had to put on Firing Line to satisfy conservatives.

    I recall ABC Nightline presenting a debate between Arnauld de Borchgrave of the Washington Times and Alex Cockburn. That would be unthinkable today: like CNN presenting Alex Jones and Stephen Cohen.

    Then the “conservatives” got rid of the Fairness Doctrine, because “muh free market”, and the result is what we have today. As for the even newer media, the conservatives respond to their censorship with “muh private enterprise.”

    With conservatives in office, it’s like the old saying, you get what you pay for.

As it stands now, whenever Pocket suggests an article to me that has anything to do with Jogger Americans, I hit “Dismiss” without even reading a word of the synopsis. Not interested. But it would be so much better if I had an app that kept me from ever getting the suggestions to begin with.

    Let me make it simple for you: if the MSM, almost all elected officials, and 5 justices, don’t care, then the issue doesn’t matter, no matter what your Constitution says. If everyone (who matters) agrees Biden is President, then he is.

    Trump spent 4 years playing by “the rules” and what did it get him and us?

This is another Zionist attempt to sabotage Americans’ freedom of thought and speech. Like their making it punishable to boycott Israeli products in about 30 states. The ONLY reason for the powerful to suppress speech is because (1) those ideas threaten their power, and (2) those ideas may catch on with the public. There is NO other plausible reason. Any other speech is not worth their bothering about. It is a totalitarian power play, always has been, and always will be. It is a loud siren that should arouse every liberty loving person.

It came in spite of the deep state because no politician could get elected that would allow labor to be exploited by the deep state. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7WaT-kmNBE

    Many industries bowed to the law, because it was the law. Those did not either failed miserably or moved their visible operations to other nations. It was not until the demands by industry on unions that the Unions were allowed into exist in America. The unions are responsible for the monopoly powers of copyright and patent laws, the unions were infiltrated by government and industry and used to get the USA congress to pass these monopoly powers acts (copyright, patents, and privatization, and government contracting acts). Why, because the unions were told that their employer needed monopoly power in order to keep employed the people in the unions.

    Americans are back to square one, they are managed by corporations, policed by their government (the USA) and mind controlled by privately owned media. This was the situation in colonial America just prior to 1776..

    Yes i know the so called deep state is dangerous.. very dangerous, and they have the USA, British, French, Spanish, Italian, and Israeli governments on their side.. I know that too. But 340,000,000 members of the governed classes in America are coming on strong, they demand something better than what the USA has offered, and if better fails to come, I fear a lot of people are going to die.. My proposal to make liable any public media or the writers, promoters and others involved in presenting on public media misleading, false or mis-characterized materials for the harms such wrongs cause.. is a last ditch effort to try to change things enough to avoid what I think is a bloody revolution coming full force into America.

    Jews…

    And the first step of problem-solving is problem-identification. Actually, strictly speaking, the first step is problem-awareness. But you get the idea.

    From the article:

    the growth and consolidation of corporate information management firms has….limited access to material that it does not approve of, thereby successfully shaping the political and economic environment to conform with their own interests, and, increasingly those of the federal government.

    That’s exactly right. And what does it lead to?

    It leads to cultural impoverishment, a devastating social incoherence, and institutional collapse. This is why, instead of the many Ooooos and Ahhhhs about how powerful the hostile elite is, we should talk about their Pyrrhic Victory.

    It should never be forgotten for a moment that the effort to establish a social order free of control and sustained by force only increases the uncontrolled exercise of naked power.

    And it’s exactly this force, constantly applied, that destablizes the very social institutions that power controls. And now we’re back to their Pyrrhic Victory. Nothing quite fails like their success.

    In fact, in regard to their Pyrrhic Victory the future has already happened. Just look around. In the coming days, weeks, and months, more and more attention will be directed toward the consequences of their power and away from talk about how powerful they are.

    In other words, no more of this (begins at 47 seconds):

    Freer than now. First of all the danger of subversion was minimal, as Britain was a water-tight caste society and dangerous classes didn’t read except maybe a few books destined to them in particular. I remember that during Boer War Boer literature was quite easily available in Britain, in the same way that Nazi literature was never seriously repressed during WWII. But Britain was repressive in a different way : some classes were allowed to read nearly anything, some others were barred from buying poetry for instance, you could easily be arrested for having a lifestyle contrary to your duties of class.

  112. This is all about Israel ordering us to fight their wars that now include cyber warfare, in this case targeting Iran. We have now turned fascist less by choice than by coercion, duress and crass bullying by Jewish power that has our country by the balls and with no sign of that abating any time soon. It is still incomprehensible how UR has escaped these extreme measures. That RT America is supported by the Russian government is no secret, because their YouTube channel clearly so states. But so are Aljazeera, Voice of America and the BBC, to name but a few. Each of these sources are not free of propaganda favoring their own and commit the sins of omission or commission targeting other sources they are hostile to.

    This in no way absolves non-government news sources, such the NYT, WaPo, Guardian, and the whole slew of MSM corporate news giants whose prejudices and propaganda are no longer secret. I have been an occasional visitor to the AHT website and do not recall any pieces — most of which are by well known writers — that are critical of American foreign policy are any different from others that I have read in other left leaning websites. To say that this latest criminal act by the FBI is sickening would be a gross understatement.

    I hope my worst fears are not confirmed: that UR is next in line.

    As an aside, the fake “peace deal” between the Jewish state and the Gulf States and more recently Sudan, all done under duress and especially given our “protection” racket extended to these client states. It is therefore no coincidence that the UAE has recently concluded an arms purchase from the US in a deal worth $23 billion. All a very predictable upshot of the fake peace deal. Instill fear, create imaginary enemies and offer protection — for a hefty price. Mafia tactics at work.

And for Jews in general, to the extent of trying to make opposition to Jews and Israel illegal. He could not have done more for the banksters. And as for deplorables, where is the wall?

    Trump, like his nasty father before him, as Trump’s elder brother confessed to his frat brothers at his Jewish fraternity at Lehigh, is a German Jew. The father was arrested rioting with six others in KKK cap and gown. That sort of thing is called Jewish crypsis. Once you know that about Trump his behavior becomes intelligible. Trump has taken the path of what Saker calls National Zionism in direct challenge to the Rothschild order in order to slake his personal ambition. He’s tried to make up with the big bosses by making Mnuchin, multiply related to the Rothschilds, the head of treasury. But then he goes on to retweet that he’s the King of the Jews. The Rothschilds (through Soros and other servitors) are doing their damnedest to take him down.

    And in this case invitation means: do you have cable connection or not for the others, or over the LAN level access with some debian based OS.

    Private servers are far from expensive, a P4 can be server, or if you prefer modern measures make it from 50$ devices + data banks with BSD.

    Expensive is a relative term, but as for me I prefer when things are safe and build from fundation till top. Cancel-woke can be effective because the vast majority not rely on own resources, but can be crippled if a co-operant affraid and broke contract/ deny service/ lie down for woke. Even FBI was idiot when made contract with Amazon, since then rely on Amazon (and others).
    With such networks you can remain far more safe and reliable, no outside sources, or internet in use.
    No censorship, tracking, woke-cancel cannot access, etc…
    With own chat/ social network, news site, non-woke electronic library, videos, own network radio, etc…

    The revelations are indeed amazing. Here are the documents showing that the ‘progressive’ wokes’ icon Biden has a politically incorrect family history: https://demokracija.eu/world/joe-biden-a-descendant-of-slaveowners.html

    the full name of the former vice-president is Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. He was named Robinette after his father, and having this middle name appears to be a family tradition.

    The documents published by Beck trace ancestors to the sixth generation in Biden’s family tree. They include records of official US federal censuses and go back as far as 1776, to a certain Jesse Robinette.

    According to records, Biden’s ancestor had 12 slaves in 1820:
    5 male slaves, aged 14-25;
    2 male slaves, aged 26-44;
    3 female slaves, aged 0-13;
    1 female slave, aged 14- 25;
    1 female slave, aged 45+.

    According to a document dated 1832, Jesse Robinette refused to free his slaves after he passed away. Instead, he passed them on to his family.

    Dorcas Robinette was given a boy named Benjamin worth 450 dollars. She also received a girl named Nancy, who was also worth 450 dollars. Another girl called Mary was valued at 250 dollars, while Nathan was worth 600 dollars. Jno Davis and his wife Alice (Jesse Robinette’s daughter) got Bob valued at 600 dollars. Jas Robinette received Tom valued at 600 dollars, while George Robinette was given two boys, Charles – valued at 350 dollars – and Solomon, who was worth 250 dollars. Moses J Robinette, a minor, inherited Joshua who was valued at 600 dollars, while Eliza Ann Robinette, also a minor, received Pero worth 300 dollars and Elin, worth 200 dollars

Sure, some poor White Southerners were probably guilty of uttering the blasphemous N-word from time to time, but the HARDCORE tyrants and truly racist Southerners were often RICH JEWS AND WHITES. My mother grew up in a small Georgia town where a Jew owned a lumberyard and he treated all his workers, both poor Whites and Blacks like shit. My mother even played with Blacks. Interesting we learned that Anderson Cooper’s ancestors owned slaves as well. I commented that all these RICH white traitor trash phonies like Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter all probably had ancestors who owned slaves. I find it amusing how the Jew media pits rednecks against Blacks, when in fact, both these groups have more in common than they realize. Both have been ABUSED in the past, but now, the cowardly elite, totally afraid of Black thugs, look to incite Blacks against poor or middle class Whites who weren’t treated much better than Blacks back in the day.

The process accelerated dramatically a little over a half century ago and we are now witnessing the death pangs of the nation and government that once was the USA. The descent of the USA into a piece of the emerging neo-feudal global empire is well under way. The events of the last year and a half, culminating in the blatant corruption and hijacking of a presidential election clearly demonstrate this. Even if this descent can’t be stopped, it is important to document it so that someday others may learn from our tragedy.

    IF a Hitler like figure would come into power in America, UTTER COWARDS AND OPPORTUNISTS like Biden, Pelosi, and other white traitor trash would become the biggest Nazis out there.

    Nah.

    You seem to think that Nazis were bad which is no doubt a product of the brainwashing we’ve all received from the handlers of the Bidens and Pelosis of our time and of our parents’ time. In fact, there’s a lot of good evidence that Hitler cared about his people, his nation, and Western civilization and did what he thought would benefit all three while the criminal Red and fanatic Zionist supporting Bidens and Pelosis of his time worked overtime to bring him down and they’d no doubt do the same to any Hitler we could generate.

    Given the horrors and choices faced by the German people of the time, it’s not so hard to understand why they would try to fight their way out of the threats rather than submit to the Talmudists without a whimper like we in the US have done and apparently shall continue to do far into the future.

    Sources are available if anyone’s interested, which they ought to be, since it should be very apparent that we are all Weimar Germans now.

    Most of the people in Washington, D.C., are soulless, and probably guilty of all sorts of vile and disgusting acts.

    True but may I point out that the comment describes Commies and extremist Zionists much more than it does the Nazis?

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that the so-called, “Nazis” were bad, far from it. I was just using Hitler as an example because he has been painted by the Jew media and people like Pelosi to Tucker Carlson as the epitome of evil. IF you have read my comment history, you will find that I in no way, shape or form buy into the (((official narrative about Hitler, evil Nazis, the holocaust.)))

    What I was suggesting is that often people like Biden, Pelosi and even a great deal of republiCANT scum will go along to get along as long as it benefits them. Hell, sadly, a great deal of people are that way. Hitler was a very BRAVE MAN and a MAN WHO LOVED HIS PEOPLE. He was protecting Germans and really most of Europe from falling under (((communist rule.))) I have voiced my displeasure with “our greatest generation ever” on numerous occasions.

    Sorry, IF it sounded as if I was labeling the Germans or Hitler as the “bad guys” when in fact, they were the “good guys” and that is plain to see for even the dumbest of the dumb in 2020 or at least it should be if people weren’t so drugged up, depressed and mentally ill, had their minds on stupid shit like (((movies))) and the NFL, etc.

    First I ever heard of her, and she seems like quite a fine character, so thanks for that. Most useful comment on this thread, sir!

    This quote is taken from which seems to be a good bio in case anyone has some interest in her story and those of some of the people she’s helped.:

    When the Australian revisionist Dr Fredrick Töben was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport in October 2008 and subjected to a European Arrest Warrant seeking his extradition to face criminal opinion charges in Germany, Lady Renouf mobilised a defence team that successfully opposed the warrant as invalid, forcing the German authorities to back down and accept his release. The Töben case proved an important precedent in relation to the traditional Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson, who was convicted in Germany for answers he gave to a Swedish television crew in November 2008, but who as a consequence of the success in Töben’s case, could not be subjected to a European Arrest Warrant. On Bishop Williamson’s return to London in 2009 he was met at the airport by Lady Renouf, who gave interviews to BBC Radio 4 and the World Service later that day, in which she debated the issues involved with Deborah Lipstadt and the late Greville Janner of the World Jewish Congress.

    It is very good news. Lady Renouf was acquitted of speaking with compassion for the victims of Dresden fire bombing. Germany can not hold its high up if it jailed her for that. Germany’s notorious record of jailing for its Zionist rulers’ tribal fantasies is a blight on Germany and all European nations that do the same. It is a true dark ages in Europe and the rest of the west for freedom of speech.

    WE MUST NOT GIVE UP FREE SPEECH. The only speech that should be censored IMO is when people attack religious figures, religion, or speech that incites violence. I don’t support mocking Mohammad anymore than I support mocking Jesus Christ, but then again, Arabs have no place in Europe and they should return home. IF you are white and European and choose Islam, perhaps you would be better suited living in the Middle East, but IF you decide to live in Rome, well you can’t go along whining because Italians don’t wish to adopt your way of life or religion. Of course USUALLY when it comes to mocking Jesus and/or Mohammad, there is always a (((common denominator.)))

    Speaking of when they mocked Mohammad, remember when all those European and world leaders, with Baby Nut&Yahoo locked arm and arm with Merkel front and center of course, marched for “free speech.” LMAO. Oh, they approve of mocking some religious figure but they jail people, even historians with no political agenda, for having the wrong opinion on the holocaust or WWII narrative. Hmm, would they imprison a Holodomor denier? Do they even recognize the Holodomor as a genocide? I don’t remember ever reading or hearing about the Holodomor while growing up, hell, I never heard about until I was middle aged man.

    Hell, I even support the free speech of all those football players taking a knee and I support my right not to watch them play football, which I have done now for 3 years and counting.

    This frenzy to suppress uncontrolled media is clearly linked to the real problem Biden will inherit – covering up CIA’s development and use of banned biological weapons – a felony in municipal law, a crime in universal jurisdiction, and an internationally wrongful act in breach of jus cogens. This time it’s SARS-COV-2, illegally developed at UNC’s Burnett-Womack Center and weaponized by Batelle under compartmented subcontracts abroad. CIA killed 250,000 Americans already. You need a guy with experience covering up that sort of thing.

    So naturally Biden’s chief of staff is Klain, the guy saved the CIA’s balls when they dropped the beaker of Ebola in Kenema and blamed it on all the bats that flew 2000 miles from Congo without infecting anybody along the way (except that, uh, Congolese bats migrate the other way, south to Zambia.)

    The whole world has a grievance this time. Some UN member nations have highly competent security services. CIA is in some deep shit.

    Obama’s regime bloody policies continue in the suffering Syria:
    https://www.voltairenet.org/article211611.html
    “International conference on the return of Syrian refugees”

    Josep Borrell, the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, had issued a statement against the conference the day before, underlining that the EU stands firm on the principles of the United Nations administration formulated in February 2018. However, those principles are none other than those contained in Jeffrey Feltman’s secret memorandum prohibiting any aid for Syria’s reconstruction for as long as the Republic will not be defeated.

    The Iranian delegation, led by Ali Asghar Khaji, proposed the creation of an International Fund for the reconstruction of Syria.

    The Chinese delegation, chaired by Fiong Biao, stressed that the US and European sanctions against Syria, which are an obstacle to the reconstruction of the country, are illegal under international law.

    The US military has been in service to mega war-profiteers and zionists — with the disastrous consequence for the millions of innocent civilians in faraway countries.

    I will quote below, Karl Rove’s quote and then paraphrase the same quote for you.

    “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

    And, to paraphrase

    “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own drama. And while you’re studying that drama — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new dramas, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re drama’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
