^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. An image from the article has definitely stuck to my brain: Mass Media, grownups, suckling at the breast of the establishment. What a disgusting true picture! To win the battle against totalitarian government and oligarchy control
    requires us to defend the commons of information such as this site. The ‘Establishment’ has lost the battle of information. As a former CIA Operative said, we will not have done our job until all the people believe is what we tell them. Their job is now imperiled by mass of alternative information they do not control. A refreshing thought compared to ‘suckling mass media’.

  2. Like yapping small lap dogs, the media and lefties snap at the heels of the Large Black Trump Bear. But it takes more than that to bring him down and in the interim, he says the darndest things (Art Linkletter would have a field day with him on television). But with African nations stick and stones will break their bones, but his words ‘shitholes’ can hardly harm them. Because their exploitation and domination go on regardless and they know it.

  3. sorry but i see very little sign whatsoever of his “draining the swamp”….it began with his failing to support Flynn or possibly even before with many inappropriate appointments but was clear when to silence the baying hounds and to impress the Chinese President he attacked a Syrian airbase on no real evidence in complete breach of international law,to much praise and acclaim by all the assorted blood-letters,where he murdered numbers of Syrian civilians including children as “collateral damage”.As an ardent Zionist his ravings against Iran and his failure to withdraw the many illegal bases from Syria-indeed many more have been built under his watch-Trump now follows the Neocons even up to the point of highly profitable war with N Korea. That folk have begun to mistrust the MSM more because of his outbursts is a matter of pure conjecture and even if true will evaporate altogether as he falls headlong into their trap of exposing himself as unstable and inconsistent;meanwhile the US economy will continue to strip the poor and suffocate and drag down the long- declining Middle Class as life expectancy falls and 10,000s or more likely 100,000s die prematurely through inadequate healthcare and under these pressures as the internet is censored ,in public ignorance, the MSM will reassert itself………. Trump is and maybe always was just another puppet.

    1. I agree at this point Trump is a puppet, I don’t think this article would necessarily disagree. In Trumps loud mouth way he is making it very clear to every country in the world that America is a corrupt violent nut house. He is also making more Americans aware that we are a country in failure. There are still more people who think it is just Trump or the Republicans, but I talk to more and more people who realize that the Clinton and Obamas of the world are worse in that their normal behavior made is easier to steal everything from it’s own citizens as well as ever other country in the world.

    2. William: “sorry but i see very little sign whatsoever of his ‘draining the swamp'”. Exactly, Trump was never going to drain the swamp. He is a crude businessman whose sole objective is turning a profit. What the author is lauding Trump for is exposing the swamp to those many US citizens who have always blindly believed that our so-called “democracy” operated for the benefit of the people. The ordinary Republican and Democratic politicians advance their schemes with high-sounding platitudes and outright lies, or veiled in secrecy. Trump, in his crude, bombastic manner and by his actions, reveals the cesspool that is our government. Just one example: if Hillary had been elected, the response to the racist police murders of unarmed Blacks would have been “let’s have a commission investigate and recommend reforms, police sensitivity trainings, etc.” In other words, the issue would have been buried and nothing changed, people go back to their Facebook or football. Contrast The Donald, talking to a convention of policemen: “take them out and beat them up”. Well, that will not result in any change either, but now people will know it and maybe they go out into the street a little wiser.

  4. Trump is neither a puppet, nor dumb or unstable. He is a wealthy proletarian whose mouth is where his thoughts are. Instead of the usual conventionally sanctimonious leaders, whose hypocrisy and treachery are repeatedly believed in despite all clear signs to the contrary, he openly takes chances with the truth and dares to gallop in where mere mortals would not dare to tread, is loud and offensive and therefore very hated because his behavior brings out all the shortcomings of this self-hypnotizing nation. His very deleterious policies are ignored while puerile accusations are directed against him, in fact encouraged by him as a foil to hide his true intents. In short, a fine upstanding citizen and a model for this nation.
