The “Fourth Estate” Are Now Slaves of Crazed U.S. Government Psychopaths

Paul Craig Roberts says the end of accountable government is close at hand. And he’s right. Roberts observes that the CIA has so much control over the “news” media and government-approved explanations of events that most of the mainstream news media is a farce.

And,

What is astonishing about the CIA’s destruction of Julian Assange is the silence of American law schools and bar associations, the silence of universities, the absence of student and labor union protests, the absence of any protection of Assange’s rights from courts as the last news organization willing and capable of holding governments accountable for their crimes is destroyed openly in full view of the law schools, intellectuals, bar associations, courts, and print and TV media.

The CIA’s control over explanations is as complete as the control Big Brother has in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984.And this doesn’t bother the citizens of the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Europe.Only a few individuals speak out for Assange, and they, too, are demonized in turn.

In fact, I was listening to a talk radio show today, and the two co-hosts are still referring to that dreaded phone call between Donald Trump and the Ukrainian president as “Trump looking to dig up dirt on a political opponent,” Joe Biden, which is not what that phone call in question was. That was what Congressman Adam Schiffty said it was, when he read his made-up version of the phone call. The White House released a transcript of the actual phone call, and it did not show that Trump was looking for “dirt” on political opponents.

The moonstream media is a puppet of the national security state, the CIA and the military. They are not the “liberal media.” What a joke that is.

Also today Gary Barnett writes that the real news is what is not in the news. He points out that we have not been hearing anything about the Jeffrey Epstein case, or about what the U.S. government is doing to Julian Assange. He also notes the silence of non-government-approved news regarding 9/11 for the past 18 years.

I don’t know if it’s the news editors and news radio and TV producers who take direct orders from the Pentacon and the CIA, or they are so well trained by the time they get their high-up news-control jobs those editors and producers just censor based on what they have been conditioned to believe the government would approve. The control the U.S. government has over “news” (i.e. propaganda) media is amazing.

When it comes to events and issues in which people contradict the official government narrative, such as 9/11, they are called “conspiracy theorists” and so on. The same thing goes for the climate issue, in which people are labeled “deniers” by the obedient closed-minded crusaders who believe that science is “settled.” In fact, those aforementioned liberal talk radio people I heard today also frequently use the phrase, “debunked conspiracy theory” when it comes to the Russiagate or now the Ukrainegate issues. Are they that dumb? Or are they just extremely dishonest anti-truth propagandists?

And finally, Ben Norton writes about about journalist Max Blumenthal being arrested by Warshington’s anti-freedom of the press gestapo, as relates to his political reporting on Venezuela. (Kevin Gosztola has an article on that too.) Blumenthal had been exposing the Venezuelan opposition crackpots who are supported by regime-change fanatics in Warshington.

I think the “national security” (sic) state in Warshington, the moonstream media, those statists and parasites inside the beltway, they are very sick and deranged people. Liars, propagandists, and apparatchiks. They are sick.

Is Civil War Coming to Amerika?

A Georgetown University poll indicates that 67% of the voters polled believe that civil war can break out at any time in the U.S., because, it seems, there is a lot of anger out there.

That is, a civil war like that of 1861-1865. Yeah, THAT “civil war.”

Donald Trump has been saying nasty things for years, and he elicits anger in people including his supporters and those who apparently despise him.

Now, I can see how after 8 years of Obama and seeing the hostility from the braindead media with their constant lies and propaganda as well as the irrationality on the college campuses, that conservatives can be easily manipulated by Trump’s vitriolic rhetoric.

And because of the mass media propaganda against Trump and the rise in violent groups such as Antifa and the “Democratic Socialists” who believe in violence and coercion and government guns to carry out their schemes, we see a lot of social conflicts out there.

And I can see how some people don’t like being “deplatformed” by snowflake fascists who are intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them, the hunger of various sadists to go after the non-“woke” and get them fired from their jobs or banished entirely from “woke” society, or hearing Mark Zuckerberg attempt to defend freedom of speech and diversity of views on Fakebook while at the same time promoting only government-approved propaganda as being non-fake news.

But civil war?I don’t know about that.

Actually, the ones who would probably start a “war” and start shooting and bombing would be the ones whose views show that they believe in aggression, force and coercion as a means to an end.

For example, the Bush wars (on foreigners, not domestic) were wars of aggression started by the elder President Bush in 1991 and then the junior George W. Bush in 2001 and 2003.

And more recently Donald Trump believes in aggression, force and coercion in carrying out the drug war, his tribalistic war on immigrants and his trade war.

And then there are the people on the left who want to impose their socialist and communist policies with government guns. They may be even worse, given that they are feverishly working on disarming all law-abiding civilians and making them defenseless while at the same time promoting only government police and military (and non-government criminals) to have firearms.

But I still don’t think that Amerika is headed toward actual civil war. Unfortunately, a lot of people now are addicted to their stupid little gadgets, their iPhones and smartphones, and they can’t put it down and stop staring at the thing for two seconds. So many people now are addicted to the idiocy on social media, which is a place of extreme hostility, ignorance and anger on both sides.

So, it’s really this social media phenomenon that is causing the social conflicts to be exaggerated and why 67% of the voters polled think that civil war (not just civil unrest, but civil war) is coming.

Unlike an actual “civil war,” civil unrest is when we see Antifa gathering at a “Straight Pride” event and throwing urine bottles at police, and so on. But that’s not a “war.” A war is when various people in some area are armed with guns, semiautomatic rifles, bazookas, cannons and bombs firing all those things at other people in some other area, and vice versa, and it goes on for a while, with masses of dead people on the streets and so on. That’s a “war.”

But are we seeing any indication of that? Occasionally there are Antifa and white supremacists maybe getting into fights. And are there even any more of those kinds of events than there were say 10 or 20 years ago? 40 years ago we had groups such as “Weather Underground” bombing and shooting people. There are isolated incidents here and there over the years. (However, what we have had over the past 20 years have been Americans joining the largest criminal gang in the world and going over to Iraq and Afghanistan and murdering thousands, hundreds of thousands of innocent people in those areas, as the aforementioned George W. Bush did start two wars of aggression against the people of those countries and he’s still walking free. But obviously that hasn’t been a “civil” war.)

When I go outside into the center of town or into the stores, etc., I don’t see hostility, anger or hatefulness. Just regular people going about their business, and store clerks being their usual nice and friendly selves. On the public transportation there are people talking to others they are with, just regular conversations, or what I see are most people by themselves and mostly staring down into their stupid little electronic gadgets, totally oblivious to their surroundings. Now, it is possible that they are on social media getting a dose of vitriol, anger and hate in the stupid little Twitter and Fakebook things they look at — but otherwise, I am not seeing any signs of an actual “civil war” brewing. Are you seeing otherwise?

However, when the 2020 election comes around and if the ignorant fascist Trump wins despite the propaganda campaign against him, or if the shrieking bitter old hag Elizabeth Warren wins then we probably will see some trouble after 2020. But I still don’t think it will be an actual civil war. The conditions in society are not anything like they were in 1860. And also, many people now are too Xanaxized, hypnotized and subdued by their addictions to stupid electronic gadgets and social media.

So, everybody just cool it.

Julian Assange May Have Had Leakers’ Info Taken by His Torturers

Retired USAF lieutenant colonel Karen Kwiatkowski has an update on the tortured Julian Assange. Among other things, She writes:

Julian Assange is reported to very thin, very sick and being treated at this point, as little more than a “lab rat” by his state doctors and interrogators at Belmarsh.  Word is that his encryption key ring (with his private keys that unlock his various public keys) has already been extracted, under physical duress, cold, light and noise torture, food deprivation, BZ variants, some experimental, and now that he is very physically weak, PCP.  The arrests have started and they won’t stop until the injured parties –mainly the US government – have satisfied their bloodlust.

And she warns leakers to “take cover – legal, physical, operational and otherwise.”

Declaring the Wrong People as “Domestic Terrorists”

The City of San Francisco government has declared the National Rifle Association (NRA) to be a “Domestic Terrorist Organization.” And now the NRA is suing the city for violating people’s “free speech rights for political reasons” and for “trying to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA from doing business there.”

And Judge Andrew Napolitano has some important comments on the city’s declaration, and asks if government has freedom of speech rights. And the answer is No.

But exactly what has the NRA organization done that’s of a “domestic terrorist” nature? I’m sure that not one of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors can answer the question, because the answer is … nothing. But if the Board want to declare people as “domestic terrorists,” why don’t they point to the actual individuals who have done things that actually terrorize people or commit acts of violence that result in terrorizing people?

For example, the El Paso shooter. The gun maker or the organization that promotes firearms had no responsibility for what the shooter did. If he had rammed his car into a crowd and killed 22 people, should we declare the auto maker, the car dealership and AAA as a “Domestic Terrorist Organization”? Of course not.

People are hysterical now, and they need to calm down.

A Deranged Society in Amerika Has a “Straight Pride” Parade

There was a “Straight Pride” parade, with 36 arrested and 4 police officers injured, in Boston. Many police officers had to act as shields between the “Straight Pride” people and the demonstrators, some of whom were saying that they needed to have a presence there to shout down the “Straight” morons and also accuse the “Straight” people of advocating hate and discrimination against gays and lesbians, and other LGBTQZZZZZ activists.

So, can someone please tell me why heterosexual people must go to this public event to say unequivocally that they are “Straight” Pride? What exactly does “Straight” mean, anyway? And I thought that “gay” meant “happy” or “joyous.” (Apparently not.)

I think that all this is going on, as idiotic as it is, because the LGBT activists have gone way off the deep end, in such an extreme, far removed from advocating “gay rights” or protecting themselves from the violence of anti-homosexual thugs. In the old days in America gays were victims of such violence, just because of being gay. But that doesn’t really happen that much now. It does happen in Saudi Arabia, Iran and other more repressive areas, in which those places’ governments are inflicting such harm against people just for being homosexual.

But sadly in Amerika, in which “social justice” warriors are being brainwashed in the schools from their earliest days to believe in a lot of crap they believe now, the violence is going in the reverse. Whether it’s gays and lesbians or other members of the LGBTQ+++ community, Black Lives Matter or other black or minority activist groups, abortion groups or other leftist organizations, the violence is being perpetrated against conservatives, anyone with a “MAGA” hat, and even police now, regardless of any particular police officer’s record or himself respecting the rights of protesters, etc.

And all over on the college campuses we have speech codes, lists of the many words or phrases that one may not speak, or else, and professors getting fired for using the “n-word” merely in historical context such as describing a ’60s Civil Rights march dialogue, and so on.

During the 1980s a common phrase, including being written as graffiti on buildings and street posts, was “Silence = Death.” This was in reference to the AIDS crisis that was mainly hitting the male homosexual community (if that is a “community”). In the old days if someone was homosexual that meant he had to be hush-hush about it, or risk getting some sort of abuse or even evicted or fired from work. But the AIDS crisis brought about silence that included being silent about ways to protect themselves from getting the HIV and then possibly AIDS, that at the time was a death sentence.

But now, silence is what the people on the left want, not only from those with whom they disagree on political and social issues, but from EVERYONE! Anyone caught uttering certain, specific phrases or words (example) will be disciplined, like it’s the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany.

People are getting censored from Google, Facebook and Twitter. And they are getting “de-platformed,” which in some cases can threaten people’s livelihoods.

Speaking of the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, unfortunately many of today’s young people are not educated in the history of those 20th Century, socialist, totalitarian societies. They have NO idea that they are being brainwashed to believe the same kinds of statist ideologies and myths of things that don’t exist in reality. They have no idea that they are acting like little fascists now. I don’t like being around the young people now, quite frankly, because I’m afraid some little innocent thing I might say could elicit the brainwashed twerp to then call the police on me!

And speaking of people to fear, we now have “Antifa,” which stands for “Anti-First Amendment,” gang thugs who actually start fights with, beat up on, put in the hospital those whose views they don’t like or even journalists like Andy Ngo who are merely covering a public event.

And the word “hate” is thrown around like it no longer means anything, because the ones who are accusing others of “hate” are themselves the ones spewing hate, foul language and inflicting violence on others. They do it in public, on Twitter, in restaurants, everywhere.

Now, are you parents out there? In your 30s, 40s or 50s? Are any of those young people your kids? What the hell did my generation (mid-50s) do to the next generation? What the hell is wrong with MY generation?

So, it is those people on the left who are driving a bunch of schmucks to have a moronic “Straight Pride” parade and wasting the very nice holiday weekend weather when they could have done something more worthwhile.
