The Return Of Ben Swann May Be The Most Interesting Thing Happening In Alternative Media Right Now

HELP ENLIGHTEN YOUR FELLOWS. BE SURE TO PASS THIS ON. SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON IT.

“The Russian envoy to North Korea warned President Trump not to place any further sanctions against North Korea or Kim Jong-un surrounding ‘supplies of oil’,” says a clean-cut reporter in a polished, professional newscast presentation. “To do so, he says, would be perceived as a declaration of war.”

Hmm, interesting. What am I watching? CNN?

“But if we’re going to be honest,” the reporter continues, “aren’t all sanctions an act of war? And why are we putting sanctions on North Korea in the first place?”

Ohhhhhh.

This ain’t CNN.


Meet Ben Swann.

The report continues with information from reputable sources explaining the spurious and politically motivated basis for labeling North Korea as a “state sponsor of terrorism”, shows data documenting how ineffective sanctions actually are in achieving their purported goals, weaving together facts and figures which culminate in the conclusion that “all that those sanctions truly do is bruise and harm the people in that country who have no real control over whether there is a war or not.”

The presentation is slick and concise enough to be indistinguishable from a professional mainstream media news broadcast, save for an abundance of information which would never be permitted on mainstream media. It’s a phenomenal resource for anti-imperialists like myself to share around when news breaks as it did today that the Trump administration is stacking even more crushing sanctions upon North Korea.



Ben Swann is an award-winning journalist whose willingness to ask questions you aren’t allowed to ask and share information you aren’t supposed to share has made him a hero of alternative media and an enemy of establishment attack dogs everywhere. He famously disappeared about a year ago after doing a surprising Reality Check report about the Pizzagate controversy on a local CBS affiliate, then deleting his entire social media presence and promising to return. Swann’s social media blackout was reportedly a condition of his remaining employed at the station following the nationwide backlash against his report, but he has publicly said he will be filling us all in on exactly what went down in the near future.

In his famous Reality Check segments prior to his disappearance, Swann was one of the largest voices calling attention to the now-uncontroversial fact that the US-backed “freedom fighters” in Syria were actually violent jihadists. He called out the problems with the CIA Russia narrative, he defended Black Lives Matter protestersWikiLeaks and third parties from establishment smears, and just generally threw a big fat monkey wrench in Big Brother’s plans for us at every opportunity using facts and information.

Swann is guided by an unapologetic libertarian ideology which has proved capable of producing some of the most effective weapons against the establishment propaganda machine on the internet. His anti-imperialist, anti-drug war, anti-surveillance, pro-freedom perspective and high professional standards have already given rise to some phenomenal videos about the despicable things the US power establishment did to Haiti, the Orwellian implications of FISA surveillance legislation, and Jeff Sessions’ idiotic marijuana agenda, as well as some quality articles on his site Truth in Media.


His ideology doesn’t exactly match my own (hell, no one’s perfect), but all in all I see Ben Swann’s return as probably the most interesting thing happening on the alternative media scene right now in terms of the damage he can do to the Orwellian death machine. Pay attention to this guy, follow him on TwitterFacebook and YouTube, and when you see him sharing something you like, throw it into the gears of the machine by circulating it far and wide. Thank you.

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.
