^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. Glen Ford, Editor in Chief, Black Agenda Report

Make sure many more people see this. It's literally a matter of life an death. Imperial lies kill! Share widely.

  1. The puerile and liberal circle jerk of name calling of this president is as effective as yelling shame when a bully humiliates but without stopping him/her. If the radical left stoops that low, then one cannot expect much of a counterintelligence against oppression. It is as idiotic as confirming Schicklgruber as the only agent for Germany’s downfall and ignoring the structure that brought him to power (he had far more power than the US president ever has/had). Idem with the US.

  2. Its great to have a president who is so good at making the capitalist empire look really bad. I am delighted that he is so ineffectively evil and that he is incapable of successfully politically organizing serious foreign aggression. I am delighted that he does not have his heart in war with Russia. It appears that he is just what capitalism needs, a mockery of itself. I am delighted that he is president rather than the evil democrats who along with Clinton would so deceptively betray America to the evil Rothschilds. And push for war with competent enthusiasm. Hey Rome had its Nero. This empire needs its mockery and fool to help its decline along. Trust the process if you can.

  3. One factor that inevitably gets left out of liberal perspectives concerning Sen. Sanders: He used to speak up strongly about US poverty (proof of the shortcomings of our capitalist system) and the need for legitimate poverty relief. He reportedly even claimed to support democratic socialism — a system that includes such poverty relief. Such ideas were rooted out of US liberal consciousness in the years between Reagan and Bill Clinton. With his 2016 campaign, Sanders no longer acknowledged anyone worse off than minimum wage workers. Many noticed.

    Beyond that, we can’t dispute that the media marketed to liberals had gone all-out to sell Hillary Clinton, with her long record of support for the right wing agenda, as a “bold progressive.” This was not a surprise, as this media overall had already turned well to the right on core economic issues.
