As a veteran media critic with many books on media bias, I understand the techniques of mind manipulation and mind control. I learned media criticism from Reed Irvine, founder of the original media watchdog, Accuracy in Media, back in 1969. I worked for him for decades. What continues to surprise me is how some so-called “conservative” publications devise new ways to sell out.
Despite the fake news reports, Joe Biden has not yet been certified as president. The official certification of results has to take place in every state. Legislatures can reject the Biden “victory” on the basis of fraud. It’s “President-elect Joe Biden,” says NBC’s Lester Holt, even though he has not been certified under the Constitution as the winner. All of this is based on a questionable “projection.” It’s non-stop propaganda that somehow doesn’t get flagged by Twitter or YouTube as dubious.
Fox News and other media keep showing the “popular vote” for president. Twitter should put a warning flag on that but won’t. Our system doesn’t recognize the “popular vote” winner as the winner of the presidential election. Ask Hillary. But so-called “popular votes” are indeed relevant in terms of votes that are being manufactured in states like Georgia and Pennsylvania to “give” Joe Biden the illusion of victory.
Glenn Greenwald is making headlines on Fox News about the CIA dominating the American media. The other more significant part of the story is that the CIA is doing Russia’s bidding. That’s why the CIA’s role in facilitating the Russia-supplied dossier on President Trump is being covered-up by CIA Director Gina Haspel.
Before Joe Biden committed a major gaffe by urging the eventual abolition of the oil and gas industry, he endorsed the idea of 8-year-old transgenders. This went beyond gaffe status to outright insanity. What’s more, it was part of his appeal to the transgender “community.” In this case, he called for “zero discrimination” against kids who want to parade around like members of the opposite sex. He didn’t rule out these confused kids getting sex-change operations.
Some scoff at the concept of a “Deep State” as a “conspiracy theory.” But nobody knows the truth better than Senator Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, who once questioned why Trump would fight the intelligence agencies, since “they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.” The phrase “six ways from Sunday” means in every possible way. Another common formulation is “by any means necessary.”
The left-wing Soros-funded National Security Archive has released some documents about the CIA’s good old days, when the agency had anti-communists on its staff and they responded to the orders of a duly elected resident. The documents concern the overthrow of the communist president of Chile in 1973.
Ignoring the nearly 200,000 deaths from the China virus, Conrad Black wrote, “Trump Has Had a Historically Great First Term,” for a website called “American Greatness.” This treatment of President Trump’s first term comes from someone pardoned by Trump for financial fraud. (The case for a pardon was supported by individuals as diverse as Henry Kissinger and Rush Limbaugh). Black wrote a pro-Trump book, Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other.
President Trump departed from his prepared remarks, in accepting the Republican presidential nomination, when he said about the Obama-Biden Administration, “Remember this: They spied on my campaign, and they got caught. Let's see now what happens.” This was a topic that deserves far more attention from the president in a public forum, perhaps an address from the Oval Office.
Alluding to the military-industrial complex, another major component of the bureaucracy, Trump said, “Unlike previous administrations, I have kept America OUT of new wars -- and our troops are coming home.”
In a 2007 address titled, “Rethinking the History and Future of the Communist Party,” the eminent left-wing historian Gerald Horne made two very important observations about what would take place in our country and world. First, he predicted the rise of Barack Hussein Obama and identified his mentor, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis. This was before Obama was elected to his first term. Then Horne predicted the rise of Communist China.
The outcome looks ominous. The establishment journal Foreign Affairs is out with an article that carries the title, “Beware the Guns of August -- in Asia.” The author, Kevin Rudd, a former Prime Minister of Australia, says, “The once unthinkable outcome -- actual armed conflict between the United States and China -- now appears possible for the first time since the end of the Korean War.”
