HERE ARE SOME GREAT QUOTES:
“There is NO such thing, at this date of the world’s history in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to DESTROY the truth; to LIE outright; to PERVERT; to VILLIFY; to FAWN at the feet of mammon, and to SELL his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the TOOLS and VASSALS of rich men BEHIND THE SCENES. We are the jumping jacks; they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.” – John Swinton (former Chief of Staff for the New York Times; statement made before the New York Press Club in 1953)
“A government which has decided on embarking on the hazardous and terrible enterprise of war must at the outset present a one-sided case in justification of its action, and cannot afford to admit in any particular whatever the smallest degree of right or reason on the part of the people it has made up its mind to fight.
Facts must be distorted, relevant circumstances concealed, and a picture presented which by its crude coloring will persuade the ignorant people that their government is blameless, their cause is righteous and that the indisputable wickedness of the enemy is beyond question.
A moment’s reflection would tell any reasonable person that such obvious bias cannot possibly represent the truth. But the moment’s reflection is not allowed; lies are circulated with great rapidity. The unthinking mass accept them and by their excitement sway the rest. The amount of rubbish and humbug that pass under the name of patriotism in wartime in all countries is sufficient to make decent people blush when they are subsequently disillusioned.”
– British Member of Parliament Ponsonby
“Falsehood in Wartime”, 1928
“I have come to learn that television is nothing more than Pravda USA…”
Dr. James W. Wardner (Author of the book The Planned Destruction of America)
Editor of TTT recently wrote a newsletter entitled “The Controlled Media Stinks!” This issue of TTT continues that theme, i.e., exposing the STINK of the CONTROLLED media.
This issue would like to express a few words about the IN-BED (some say “embedded”) media that went along with our troops in Gulf War II, and a few words about those “talking heads” at the major networks who stayed at home to report the “war news” to us.
II. LIES, DECEPTION, & PROPAGANDA
The Ponsonby quote above certainly “says a mouthful”, doesn’t it? This 20-year military veteran has NEVER seen anything like the “made-for-television” so-called “war reporting” that was broadcast on American television sets by the major news networks for Gulf War II. I must admit that I caught 20 minute or so segments of the war coverage, mostly on FOX, and while at other locations than my residence. ((I wisely got rid of my cable TV many years ago!)) To be honest, I was only able to “stomach” about 20 minutes of the “war propaganda and bias” at any given time.
First, I would like to commend the courage of those reporters who went with our troops into “dangerous areas”. However, I wish that the major news networks would have selected a few more (embedded media) individuals who had a little more knowledge of military tactics and operations. ((Some of the “embedded media” seemed to have little to no knowledge of military tactics and operations.)) I wish they would have had the courage to ask some of the tougher questions, especially at military “news conferences”; however, I realize that they probably had extremely tough RESTRICTIONS placed on what they could or could not ask. I wish they had NOT accepted such tough RESTRICTIONS (other than those necessary to protect our troops).
My main complaint is NOT with the “embedded media”. No, my main complaint is with the “talking heads” at the major news networks who fit the description of journalists given by John Swinton in 1953, and who did those things listed by Ponsonby in 1928 (i.e., distorted facts, concealed circumstances, displayed obvious bias, and put out a ton of rubbish and humbug under the name of patriotism). ((By the way, in Gulf War I, the CONTROLLED media was also guilty of circulating lies when they carried the “story” of the Iraqi soldiers “taking the babies out of incubators and tossing them on the cold floor” – a story fabricated by a Madison Avenue firm, and given in testimony before Congress, to help get the American people fired up for the first Gulf War!)) I realize that there must be some restrictions of reporting in wartime; however, it seemed as if the Pentagon had people actually at the major news networks SCRIPTING the “war news” for them!
I must confess my naiveté! I grew up in America “thinking” that we had a “free press” and that the “media” in America was the famous “Fourth Estate” (i.e., journalism) that was SUPPOSED to be one of the greatest “watch dogs” of America’s freedoms. Wow, was I ever wrong – or should I say, was I ever snookered (i.e., deceived)! Little did I know that in the early 1900s the J.P. Morgan interests has bought up CONTROL of the major newspapers in the USA in order to SUPPRESS any further criticism of the Rockefeller Empire!
Please carefully consider the following:
“In March 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests [Ed. Note: controlled by the Rockefellers]…got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the U.S. and [a] sufficient number of them to CONTROL generally the policy of the daily press of the United States. These 12 men worked the problem out by selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process to retain only those necessary for the purpose of CONTROLLING. They found it was necessary to purchase CONTROL of 25 of the greatest [news] papers. The 25 [news] papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly SUPERVISE and EDIT information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the INTERESTS of the PURCHASERS…This policy also included the SUPPRESSION of everything in opposition to the wishes of the INTERESTS SERVED.” – Congressman Oscar Callaway (in 1917 in a statement placed in the Congressional Record) ((Ed. Note: Several large U.S. newspapers had dared to criticize John D. Rockefeller, and he had decided that such criticism would never again be seen in the large U.S. newspapers.))
And things have gotten a lot worse since 1915, because not only do the globalist rich elite tightly CONTROL the major newspapers in America, but they also CONTROL the major television networks, etc. And they are buying up more and more media as this newsletter is being typed!
No, the major TV networks do NOT give us “fair and balanced” reporting. No, we can NOT “trust” them for our news. They are not only TIGHTLY CONTROLLED, but they are TOTALLY CONTROLLED by the globalist rich elite who are “control freaks”, and whose interests almost always run OPPOSITE of the interests of the American people. The loyalty of these globalist rich elite living here in America is not to the U.S. Constitution, freedom, or even to America’s national sovereignty! Their goals, as expressed in previous TTT newsletters, are global (i.e., one-world) government and a one-world religion (and it won’t be true Christianity)!
And so, can we logically expect that the American mainstream media, which they TOTALLY CONTROL, is going to give the American people a “fair and balanced” picture of the world, or even of this nation? No, the LIBERAL, SECULAR HUMANIST, SOCIALIST, GLOBALIST, etc. BIAS (i.e., slant) of the globalist rich elite is ALWAYS going to be presented THROUGH the establishment-CONTROLLED mainstream media to the American people!
Yes, editor of TTT is thoroughly DISGUSTED with the mainstream media “prostitutes” (so described by John Swinton in his 1953 quote) who have SOLD OUT their country for the “big bucks” and other benefits they get from the globalist rich elite.
Dear reader, for the sakes of our children and our grandchildren, we MUST turn off the propaganda, lies, and deception of the establishment-CONTROLLED mainstream media, to include their supposed “fair and balanced news”, and we must go OUTSIDE the CONTROLLED media for our news. And that brings us to the last section of this newsletter:
The Medusa File by Lieutenant Colonel Craig Roberts (deals with “government secrets” you are not supposed to know about; covers the period from 1940 through 1996) ((if you can only afford one book that “Radio Liberty” offers, editor of TTT recommends you get this one));
None Dare Call it Treason by John Stormer (a compilation of facts from hundreds of Congressional investigations of communism and its infiltration into many aspects of our society);
Into the Buzzsaw, edited by Kristina Borjesson (deals with some journalists in America who had major stories SUPPRESSED by “those above them” – debunks the myth of a “free press”);
The Planned Destruction of America by Dr. James W. Wardner (deals with the plans made many years ago to destroy our Republic).
Another book I most highly recommend is Operation Vampire Killer 2000 (often abbreviated OVK2000) by” Police Against the New World Order” (Jack McLamb’s organization). OVK2000 can be ordered by sending $11 PPD in cash or postal money order made out to “Aid & Abet”, and mailing it to “Aid & Abet Police & Military Newsletter” // HC 11, Box 357 // Kamiah, Idaho 83536 . ((This book is an absolute MUST read for all Americans, and especially for military and law enforcement personnel. It deals with the globalist rich elite’s plans to end America’s national sovereignty, and to bring in a New World Order. The book is in 8 ˝ X 11″ format; and is profusely illustrated with drawings. It uses a lot of great quotes, including some from the mouths of the globalists, to show us what the globalists are up to.)) Bulk prices are available on OVK2000 – for more information call 208-935-7852; or Fax 208-935-7854.
