Freedom or the MSM can Survive: Not Both

It is now clear that almost the entire MSM combined with almost all of Big Tech to censor some opinions and boost others – and it has been going on for a while, but only went into overdrive in 2020 with the effort to oust Trump. But the reason why they did it is far less important than the fact that they did it, at all. It is a huge problem – and the solution of it may determine whether we remain free, or not.

As of at least yesterday, none of the three major network newscasts had even mentioned the Twitter files. This silence could be because they haven’t worked out the talking points but it could well be that the word has come down that the files simply will not be discussed. This shows that the MSM is entirely a State-controlled media. It is a mere propaganda outfit and it is as the command of the DNC.

“Can you prove that, Mark!”

Don’t have to. I’m not stupid. Its a huge story involving one of the world’s richest men and one of the world’s largest social media platforms. This sort of thing is made for the news – and you only don’t mention it on command.

And now we have to think: the First Amendment protection for the press: does it extend to what amounts to a propaganda outfit for one party? It would be one thing if they would just admit that they are Democrat operatives dressing themselves up as news people…but they won’t admit that. They pretend to be reporting news when they clearly don’t report anything that is unfavorable to Democrats…and when it comes to disfavoring Republicans, they’ll repeat the most monstrous and stupid lies.

This is what the guys at Bunker Hill and Yorktown were fighting for?

I have my suspicions that Washington’s constabulary would have a particularly violent response to this. What will ours be? Pretend its all ok? Hope they get an attack of conscience? Pretend that when we protect CBS News we’re defending a principle?

We have to do something. We can’t let this stand. The MSM and Big Tech must be forced to kneel before the people and become, as far as humanly possible, fair and honest platforms for information. I don’t have a roadmap to this – but I think our first effort if we ever get a trifecta is to break up the large media corporations. That no one entity or person can control more than one media outlet. Joe Billionaire or MegaCorp X can own one TV network. Or one newspaper. Or one website. Or one movie studio – and they can’t own even a penny’s worth of any other. This would first and foremost restore real competition. You would get, in the end, more TV networks, more newspapers, more websites…more of everything presenting news and entertainment to the people because, my friends, there are buckets of money to be made doing that and huge amounts of fame to be had. People will still get into it even if they can’t own it all. And they’ll look for their markets and, guess what?, someone will figure out that the Right is a market.

The one thing we can’t do is nothing. We are doomed if we do nothing. Eventually – and probably very soon – you’ll see the MSM simply ceasing to cover reality. Their whole existence will be to praise Democrats and slander Republicans. They won’t even in passing mention anything that is bad news for Democrats. They will, combined with Big Tech, try to suffocate all dissent. We must find a way to breath, or we die.

    Eventually – and probably very soon – you’ll see the MSM simply ceasing to cover reality.

    Have you watched MSNBC lately?? It’s already happening. American media is now just propaganda by celebrity, and in order to change that, we need to separate the media from the power centers. Did you notice how many members of the corporate media were invited to the White House for the state dinner for Macron?? Quite a few, and that’s the problem. They all go to the same cocktail parties, their kids go to the same schools, they all take vacations together, and they all say hi to each other during the Vogue glamour photo sessions.

    To get a sense of the level of conditioning and control corporate media has over “journalism”, consider that two of the biggest American political scandals (Hunter laptop, Twitter files) are playing out in real time and not one corporate media journalist is running with the story (sans Fox News). Where is Morley Safer and 60 minutes?? These are the type of stories that win you pulitzer prizes yet not one NBC, ABC, or CBS journalist has the slightest interest.

    Real “news” is a thing of the past. Hopefully it makes a comeback.

    Allow me to offer up another YUGE scandal playing out right now

    Maricopa County Whistleblowers Reveal Tens If Not HUNDREDS Of Thousands Of Ballots With Mismatched Signatures Were Illegally Counted In Violation Of Arizona Law

    And not one journalist at the alphabet networks has any curiosity

      So, sue the pants off the people responsible. They are cocky, they think because they have the keys to the bus they can do whatever they want. So go after them where it hurts.

      And pester law enforcement and DAs to prosecute. Relentlessly. Name names. Humiliate them, scare them, hurt them.

    More good news this morning.

    Freedom Caucus firebrand Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo, has won her bid for re-election against Democrat Adam Frisch, an automatic recount confirmed Monday. The race was decided by 546 votes.

      Good for her. They tried their tricks but in that part of the world those tricks don’t work as well.

    And some not-so-good news.

    The Federal Reserve may be trying to tighten up on the economy because of the high rates of inflation that are being experienced, but there appears to be little support for this from the fiscal side of the government.

    “The monthly federal deficit was a record-setting $249 billion in November, $57 billion wider than the same month last year….”

    Here’s a woke take on the idea of having a community Christmas tree, a letter written to the librarian.

    Lisa Desmond: F**K YOU. You knew what you were doing. You spent days batting aside the people who asked you to ratchet this back. “Everyone will tell you I’m the most inclusive person ever!” Everyone will tell me that you are a selfish f**king b**** who does not care about anyone but herself. For a tree? For a motherf***ing TREE? You have put people’s lives in a lot of danger. A LOT of danger. For a motherf***ing Christmas tree…

    I hope this is worth it. All. I hope the fact that you— who claim to believe in Christ and Christmas or whatever happy horseshit you’re trying to hide behind— are the least gracious, most hateful, most disgusting trash in the world. Is this what you think your magic sky daddy wants? Where in the Bible was this again?

    In closing I would like to add a final round of F**K YOU, YOU PIECES OF TRASH. I hate each and every one of you and I do wish great suffering on you. You are terrible, terrible people.

    Yes, a town library Christmas tree “puts peoples’ lives in a lot of danger. A LOT of danger?” I think it’s obvious that the only person in danger is the author of this wholly unhinged and vile rant, Dedham Human Rights Committee member Diane Loud, who seems to have a unique perspective of “human rights”. It sounds like her head might explode.

    Time for the weak big government parasites to mask up !!!

    Masks creep back into daily life across the US: 20million people in Washington, LA and NYC are being recommended to wear face coverings indoors to protect against flu, Covid and RSV

    And just because you’re pretending to be safe from a virus remember, there is still a lot of white supremacy out there so be careful and stay safe !!!

      There are lots of “head-in-sand” people unable to think for themselves. As long as their actions don’t negatively impact the rest of society it’s easy to let them be. Once their action and rhetoric start impacting other, then it’s time to push back, politely in some cases, harshly in others.

      • Amazona December 15, 2022 / 11:19 am

        I still see some people wearing masks, and I have different reactions. My reaction to the woman whose two small children were masked was that this was child abuse, but usually I just have a passing thought that the masked person is just not very bright and move on. When I see very old people wearing masks I tend to just feel sorry for them, that they are so terrified and living in fear that they think a piece of paper or cloth is going to protect them. And sometimes you can see the smugness emanating from the Virtue Signalers, who are so proud of their moral superiority as THEY have the decency to protect society.

    So couldn’t help but notice this – while Russia threatens nuclear war and China continues to kill Americans with an endless supply of fentanyl, our elected politicians are focused on what really matters …

    Caraballo, a trans woman and clinical instructor at Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic, was speaking at a House Oversight and Reform hearing titled ‘Confronting White Supremacy: The Evolution of Anti-Democratic Extremist Groups and the Ongoing Threat to Democracy.’

    It’s just hard to believe what college “educated” kids have done to this country.

    • Amazona December 14, 2022 / 1:05 pm

      I’ve often thought that. The biggest and best tool of the Left is propaganda, and having a tailor-made villain that can be dragged out to implicate the opposition in nefarious words and deeds would be a big weapon in their arsenal. Those two groups would have that affect plus that of luring in people who might be led to do stupid things (like those led by the FBI into the Gretchen Whitmer kidnap plot).

      Also consider QAnon. Being antagonistic toward social media I was late to learn about QAnon, but when I heard of it the first thing I thought was that someone had a bright idea of how to get damaging information out there and the Left, immediately seeing the danger to them in this, stepped in not by denying what was said but by dumping vast amounts of obviously nutty content on top of it, effectively tainting the real information and also providing another straw man villain they could point to when necessary.

      Am I saying this is what happened? No. But I am saying if I were in charge of the Left’s efforts to manipulate emotions these are things I would do.

      There are other examples of organized herding of clueless Trump supporters, which have never been investigated by the House committee or gotten any public attention. Hopefully this will change with a Republican House that can do real investigations into real crimes

    To quote Vice President Joe Biden, this is a big f’ing deal!

    In case you missed all the hoopla yesterday, and somehow overlooked the ultra-rare C&C Breaking News alert (shame on you), yesterday Governor DeSantis hosted the scientific roundtable we’ve been fervently praying for. The short version is, Florida is about to do four incredibly significant things:

    Convene a statewide criminal Grand Jury to investigate crimes and fraud committed against Floridians related to the covid-19 vaccines. I am NOT making that up!

    Establish a “Public Health Integrity Committee,” overseen by its Harvard-trained Surgeon General, which will assess all federal public health recommendations and guidance, to ensure that Florida’s public health policies are good for Florida. In other words, we’re not slavishly following the CDC anymore.

    Work with medical examiners to study autopsy results of all Floridians who died suddenly after receiving the covid-19 vaccine. The state will also work with the University of Florida to compare its research to studies from other countries.

    Introduce a new bill over the next few weeks designed to protect physicians’ independent judgment, their First Amendment rights, and their independent right to dissent from orthodox narratives.

    But here is the thing. The Governor’s announcement yesterday just threw open the Overton Window with enough force to break all the glass. As much as corporate media wants to ignore, downplay, and dismiss the story, a lot of people are hearing about it and thinking about what it all means. People who’ve been blithely assuming that the safe and effective vaccines were completely insulated from criticism or scrutiny, are now wondering what side they want to be on.

    In a miraculous confluence of events, the Governor’s roundtable won’t be yanked off the internet this time, because Twitter is now being operated by Elon Musk’s team. You couldn’t possibly ask for better timing between the Twitter takeover and the Governor’s announcements. This time, the roundtable will be clipped, linked, re-tweeted, quoted, and anyone who wants to can watch it for themselves; they won’t have to accept corporate media’s version of what happened.

    Go Ron, Go!

      Dr. Robert Malone: It’s unequivocal. And the Twitter files make it really overt. The involvement of Michelle Obama in advocating for this. There was clearly an effort by the administrative state and its operational intelligence owner to remove a sitting president of the United States. And to delegitimize and deplatform him from one of his favorite channels for communication. Whatever you thought about his tweets. I think among other things, Donald Trump is an absolute master of Fifth Generation Warfare. And Twitter was one of his major platforms for executing on that. And there was an attempt to pull it away and they succeeded. And it was a concerted effort on the part of the intelligence community, and the DNC, I think we gotta call it where we see it. The DNC got in there are really worked its way on the Twitter leadership.

    • Retired Spook December 14, 2022 / 2:34 pm

      From the C&C post:

      The roundtable’s possibly most interesting comment was from Dr. Fraiman, a Louisiana ER doctor who’s published a study re-analyzing Pfizer’s clinical trial data. He and other study authors found that – according to Pfizer’s OWN data — one in 800 people in the clinical trials experienced a serious adverse event after getting the vaccine.

      Dr. Fraiman contrasted that 1/800 figure with the rate for serious AE’s for all other vaccines, which is: 1/1,000,000. In other words, all other vaccines see one serious AE in a MILLION shots. It’s not even close.

      Worse, Dr. Fraiman pointed out that the 1/800 figure is just AE’s reported during the two-month clinical trial period. In other words, those are just the ACUTE injuries. The 1/800 figure doesn’t include any serious AE’s that developed AFTER the first two months. The real number could be higher, maybe MUCH higher.

      For those who are not good in math, 1 in 800 is 1,250 time higher than 1 in a million.

      I am, more and more, a DeSantis fan. And BTW the longer I am here in SW Florida, the more I like it. Part of that is the weather, which is perfect—70s and sunshine—and part is being surrounded by conservatives.
