Can fakes fight fakes?
It’s an absurd question. An insult to intelligence. But it’s also par for the coure in American communications, for a very long time based on carefully manufactured falsehoods.
[su_panel]Some of you may have already noticed the “Spotlight” horizontal scroll at the top of our pages. This space presents our audience with commentary of urgent but also lasting interest. Call it a “fluid editorial”. It allows us to say things almost instantly, vital in our time, without having to prepare a conventional essay. The messages may change from day to day and sometimes, if necessary, from hour to hour, so keep an eye on the crawl. Let us hear about your maximum concerns and we’ll try to include them in the Spotlight. Below, read iteration #7 of the Spotlight. We think it’s rather important. In fact, damn important. So sit up and pay attention. Humanity has turned a corner this year. Business as usual is out. Begin to incorporate that in the way you think about the world. [/su_panel]
I t had to come, sooner or later, under the present system. For no system deeply grounded in criminality and lies, shielded from citizens retribution and rectification by a huge machinery of disinformation, can take kindly to any form of truth-telling.
Free citizens everywhere must be on guard. Corporate power is moving to silence the Web.
The signs are clear. The establishment is not happy with the outcome of 2016 election.
The establishment media, reflecting almost unanimous ruling elite consensus, was backing Hillary.
But divisions within their own ranks and the power of social media upset the apple cart.
This was a wake-up call for them.
The artificial “national consensus” maintained by the MSM is leaking. Deflating.
There’s seepage in the form of systemic analysis threatening their legitimacy.
Truthtellers, banned by the mainstream media, are finding audiences in dissenting websites.
So there’s big consternation, anger and confusion across the corporate media.
CBS, the New York Times and their ilk are pulling their hair. Alarmed.
The near-universal brainwash is crumbling. MSM traction is weakening its grip.
What is the Ministry of Truth to do in the face of a broad rebellion?
People are beginning to leave them in droves for citizens’ journalism.
And other ways of freewheeling communication the Internet has spawned.
But it is the mainstream media’s filthy mendacity that brought us all to this juncture,
The pathetic election of 2016. With disgraceful “choices” more rotten than ever before.
Democracy for you, US style. All surface form, circus and noise but no substance.
It is clear that many big shots are fretting about their inability to control opinion 100%.
The presstitutes—while still noxious and lethal—cannot deliver the goods.
This is what worries the status quo watchdogs. And the powers that be who employ them.
Solution? Start demonizing social media. The Internet itself.
The signs are there already. PAY ATTENTION.
Prepare yourselves for some kind of government offensive against Free Speech.
Clamping down on sites not mirroring “approved political speech.”
As usual, it will come from both parties, from the Duopoly whores.
The Democrats in their infinite treachery are apparently leading the charge.
But their brethren in chicanery and criminality, the GOP mafia, will soon join them.
It’s once again a ruling class project. Protecting the interests of the “1%”.
But they can’t say that. So they are using a different angle.
The main excuse will be to “protect” the public, our delicate minds, from “FAKE NEWS”.
O yea, FAKE NEWS, lies, the public mind needs protection from lies!
Lies irresponsibly disseminated by “non professional” media. So they say.
Lies spread by “unidentified sources”. Lies people believe.
Lies that people believe without checking first with CBS or The New York Times.
The supposedly “serious” press. Dig that.
Can you believe the sheer audacity of this crowd? The galactic size cynicism.
As if the mainstream media were not the main purveyors of lies.
As if the mainstream media were not the PROFESSIONAL dispensers of lies.
As if the corporate media were not the actual Ministry of Truth.
In the service of the 0.00001% and their awful agenda.
Endless wars. Ecological destruction on a global scale behind pious posturing.
Deeper economic insecurity for more billions across the planet.
And the very high probability of a nuclear war.
Yes, the “unthinkable” for so many people, made real by the mad logic of the system.
Inch by inch sold to the people by this very same “serious press.”
Read and watch the videos we present this morning about this sinister development.
CBS and the “respectable” print icons are already discussing it.
CBS calls it “The battle to stop the spread of fake news online.”
See our coverage of this disgusting topic.
In other words “news” not approved by the Ministry of Truth and its minions.
The Internet has long been a place in which ALL sorts of wild stories circulate.
Yet, overall, it has also been, increasingly, the only place we can find truth.
People have gotten accustomed to this, and they have begun to sharpen their minds.
Learn to sift the true from the false. It’s an imperfect process given the prevailing lies.
The mass of lies planted for eons by the guardians of the capitalist order.
Now, obviously, they are seeing that they may have created a dangerous source of truth.
Hence the rising noise about FAKE NEWS in need of controlling. Need of “oversight”
The CIA/Pentagon have long seen the manipulation of truth as part of their arsenal.
It’s in their lingo, the “weaponization of information.”
They have been doing it for eons. They practically invented it.
Massive distortion of truth is essential to their color revolutions.
Part of “hybrid war”. The most underhanded form of combat.
Essential to their drumbeat for war and global hegemony under various pretexts.
Some people are seeing through it, hence the need to muffle them.
What to do? The path seems clearer by the day.
Above all, the Democratic party—the graveyard of progressivism— must be destroyed.
They are not our allies but their enemies. Traitors. The GOP is beyond the pale.
A foul entity that should have vanished years ago but resuscitated by the Democrats.
It was the Democratic party betrayals that brought us to this sorry pass.
Obama’s successful demagogy and symbolism fooled far too many.
Efforts by the Clinton mafia to capitalize on people’s disgust with Trump must be checked.
Disgust with Trump must energize extra-electoral forms of resistance and protest.
It must energize a genuine people’s & ecology party.
Time for a new party, a new movement of the people.
Time to bury the Duopoly, an undemocratic malignancy.
Either we clean house in this country, for real, or it’s curtains for us all.
And the generous planet that gave us life.
The lies of media & political bloviators will never change that fact.
Time to do the hard job: build real democracy in America.
Circulate our new motto: #NMFD
NO MORE FUCKING DUOPOLY.
