Think!

^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.

  1. I was not offended by Angela Lansbury’s recent comment about women also being to some extent responsible for some sexual harassment. Of course it is men who bear the brunt of most of the responsibility, but I have also wondered why women news anchors, here in the US often show cleavage while men are buttoned up to the neck with ties, and suits that do not hint of sexuality…

    That is not to say that women are responsible for men behaving badly, but it doesnt help to be inappropriately sexy…. there is a time and place to be sexy… but it is not in a place where sexuality should be irrelevant…

    No one ever harassed Jessica Fletcher…. I have tremendous respect for Angela Merkel, with her firm position of helping refuges…. do I care if she wears frumpy suits…. absolutely not… She is a powerful woman, who does not have to prove her sexiness in public. Above all she is a person… and I view her as such.

    Anyone who could play Jessica Fletcher with such dignity & verve, obviously understands what it means to be a woman who is respected.

    No one ever harassed Jessica Fletcher.

  2. Angela Lansbury’s words were not intended to let off hardcore pedaophiles, rapists and other assorted hardcore misogynists…. She was speaking of the entertainment world, where women are forced into looking a certain way… and then exploited for looking that way….

    Society has to change how it perceives women. In traditional theatre actresses played complex characters, whose identities were not dependent on their sexuality. In the modern day entertainment business accesses have been forced into looking a certain way into sexualized objects, all of which has little to do with acting. This has to stop before we can be rid of the perverts who created this industry for their own gratification…

    On the other hand we need more Jessica Fletchers on the screen & more Angela Merkels on the world stage… who dare to defy the expectations of sleezy men, who claim their personhood.

    should read

  4. In fact sex has little to do with all this, but abuse of power has everything to do with it. And that is what everyone should be fighting against.

    1. It is abuse of power that is most often experienced by women. It is the eternal hierarchy, god over man, man over woman, and humans over animals… Sexual harassment and violence are an expression of domination typical of patricarchical societies…. condoned and approved by patriarchical dominionist religions…

      Generically mysogyny is abuse of power, but there are specific forms of expression that must be challenged.

  5. When you deck yourself out to draw attention to your sexually, some times you draw more attention than desired ….. or maybe the attention desired. A reasonable conclusion on Angela’s part. I see nothing to say Angela meant it was ok to predator women (or men) using their power of position.

    1. It takes two to tango… While there is nothing in Lansbury’s statement that suggests it is the fault of women, there is in your…. Just because someone decks themselves out, does not mean they are fair game….

  6. Bravo for Eisenbud. But there are some limits and the way Western women went into Arab bazaars undressed according to Moslem customs with short sleeved blouses and hot pants shows a disdain for local customs and a contempt for the sensitivities of colonized populations that should not then be a surprise that they were touched and spit upon. Which shows that all is relative to the symbols expressed and even a sexual unwanted remark is a sign of abused power.

  7. A great deal is censored out of the media marketed to liberals. We really don’t all Stand in Solidarity merely to protect the advantages of the better off, the middle/working class. We don’t buy into the anti-Russian propaganda, or the anti-Israel propaganda. We don’t stereotype low-income and poor white people as a collection of ignorant right wingers who are undeserving of the most basic human rights (UN’s UDHR) of food and shelter. The list goes on. Maybe you’ll get the point.
