You Won't See This In The Mainstream Media

 



You Won’t See This in the Mainstream Media

Junious Ricardo Stanton

 

 

“The global oligarchy controls all of the major media. The media mega-corporations own each others stock, and in turn are owned and controlled by an oligarchy of transnational corporations, international bankers and European dynastic families. In the United States, six global media corporations control 90% of what we see, hear and read: COMCAST (NBC / Universal) NEWS CORP (Fox News / Wall Street Journal) TIME WARNER (CNN) VIACOM DISNEY (ABC) CBS. The oligarchy controls the major internet search engine and the major internet social media site: GOOGLE FACEBOOK. The oligarchy controls the major print and broadcast media around the world, including: NEW YORK TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, REUTERS, ASSOCIATED PRESS, BBC (BRITISH BROADCASTING CORPORATION), THE TIMES OF LONDON. The oligarchy also controls the most influential alternative media news sources.” NEW YORK TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, REUTERS, ASSOCIATED PRESS, BBC (BRITISH BROADCASTING CORPORATION), THE TIMES OF LONDON. The oligarchy also controls the most influential alternative media news sources.” https://beyondthemediamatrix.net

            We are living in a time of universal mendacity, disinformation and propaganda. We can see this when we channel surf and scan the various news stations, we notice the similarity and sameness being broadcast whether the medium is allegedly “liberal” or conservative”, We notice there are only slight differences in the message. For example there are very few challenges to the “official narratives” whether they are about the JFK assassination, 9-11, the cause of the 2008 financial implosion, COVID or other events such as the recent assassination of the President of Haiti.

            There is an African saying, “Truth is in the marketplace, but is anyone buying?” There is very little truth in the corporatist media these days, what we mainly get are teleprompter readers, stenographers, PR reps and cheerleaders for the government and corporations whose agendas are all too often identical at the expense of the masses. This is the classic definition and example of fascism, what Benito Mussolini called corporatism, the blending of corporations and the state. We are seeing this meld in real time on a daily basis. Not only is it corporatism but it is monopoly corporatism (fascism).

  Investigative journalism is a thing of the past due to the influence of money, advertising and the profit motive. Most media are owned by the same groups of people, who control most of the stocks and the media is greatly influenced by the whims, wants and objectives of the advertisers which is the profit motive. The media creates and promotes a worldview, a fake reality the ruling classes want us to believe, acquiesce to and mindlessly follow. In some places this is called The Matrix. Author Eric Arthur Blaire better known by his pen name George Orwell called it Big Brother in his novel 1984. Many realize we are living in that dystopian world now and it may become far worse before it gets better.

The global elite are extremely powerful; they exert major influence not only on government, economic and social policy but also on many aspects of our daily lives. For example it was the global elites like the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Klaus Schwab and others who pre-fashioned much of the response to the COVID crisis. This response was based upon conducted drills, simulations and test runs designed to accomplish exactly what the global cabal intended. “They planned and prepared for the coronavirus decades in advance. The infrastructure has been clearly set up over the last 2+ decades to ensure that when Operation Coronavirus went live, all the pieces would be in place to bamboozle and enslave people, forcing them into a place where they would gladly accept or beg for mass vaccination…” Nine Simulations Drills and Laws that Planned and Prepared For the Coronavirus by Makia Freeman https://thefreedomarticles.com/9-simulations-drills-laws-prepared-for-the-coronavirus/

These unelected elites are the ones who pushed to shut the economies down, promoted lockdowns, medical martial law and universal vaccination. Israel, Gibraltar, and Iceland are the most heavily vaccinated nations in the world; they are also experiencing upticks in COVID infections hospitalization and deaths by vaccinated people! Meanwhile India has seen a drop in infections with limited vaccines and Sweden and Denmark have ceased their restrictions altogether.

The global ruling class is on a roll; they have upped the ante, they have put their feet on the pedal in their drive for global domination and monopoly ownership. Their goal is a neo-feudal techno-fascist order with themselves on the top and us on the bottom. Do some research on what they are calling The Great Reset https://americanpolicy.org/2021/03/15/what-the-great-reset-will-really-do-to-you/, it will shock you. 

To accomplish this social re-engineering they must lie to us using their 24/7/365 media/propaganda machine.  We are being lied to and bamboozled at every turn. I urge you to think for yourself, question everything and do not be so cavalier when it comes to your mind; menticide is real.

Haiti Gets No Respect

 


Haiti Gets No Respect

Junious Ricardo Stanton

 

            Recent images of US Border Patrol Agents interacting with Haitian immigrants caused shock and stir when juxtaposed against images of Afghani refugees being shuttled onto waiting US military transport planes to he brought to the US and housed courtesy of the US government and taxpayers. The rationale is that these people need to be recued because they collaborated with the US during the US/NATO occupation of that nation in what had become the United States longest running war. President Biden took heat for his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal and the fact he left an unknown number of Americans in the country.

            People see how the US is bending over backwards to accommodate the Afghan refugees and the stark contrast to the way Black Haitians are being treated as they also try to forge a better life for themselves and their families by coming to America.

            On Friday the US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas appeared at a press conference to provide an update on the situation in Texas. He stated the images of the border patrol appearing to beat the Haitians with horse reins was “not who we are and are not our values.” He stated all the migrants had been removed from the Del Rio area some were processed and returned to Haiti while others were being taken care of until their future fates could be determined.

            People around the world were outraged at the images of the US Border Patrol agents’ interactions with the Haitians.  On social media there were comparisons to how enslaved Africans were treated in the US during slavery and the actions of the US Border Patrol agents. Neither is a good look especially when you consider the abysmal relationship between the US and Haiti going back to the establishment of that Republic in 1804.

            Haiti’s defeat of France sent shockwaves throughout the Western Hemisphere especially the US slavocracy which was heavily dependent upon slave labor to generate the workforce and profits that would make the US the envy of the world. The resilience of the Haitian people to stave off subsequent attempts by France, other European countries as well as the United States to recolonize and re-enslave it has led to formal ostracism, crippling debt and odious “reparations” payments being imposed upon the island nation by the West. It’s as though the Western imperialists will never forgive Haiti for defeating them and casting off their shackles and chains.

            On July 7, 2021 Jovenel Moise the unpopular President of Haiti was assassinated in a brazen attack on his home. There are alleged links between the assassins and the U.S., “Several of the men involved in the assassination of Haiti's President previously worked as US law enforcement informants, according to people briefed on the matter, as US investigators grapple with an increasing number of Florida links to the alleged hit squad. Haitian President Jovenel Moise was killed last Wednesday in an operation that Haitian authorities say involved at least 28 people, many of them Colombian mercenaries hired through a Florida-based security company. At least one of the men arrested in connection to the assassination by Haitian authorities previously worked as an informant for the US Drug Enforcement Administration, the DEA said in a statement in response to CNN.” Several tied to Haitian assassination plot were previously US law enforcement informants – Evan Perez https://edition.cnn.com/2021/07/12/americas/haiti-assassination-plot-us-law-informants/index.html 

            The US has been directly or indirectly involved in all the intrigue and mischief on the island for over a century. “Between 1911 and 1915, seven presidents were assassinated or overthrown in Haiti, increasing U.S. policymakers’ fear of foreign intervention. In 1914, the Wilson administration sent U.S. Marines into Haiti. They removed $500,000 from the Haitian National Bank in December of 1914 for safe-keeping in New York, thus giving the United States control of the bank. In 1915, Haitian President Jean Vilbrun Guillaume Sam was assassinated and the situation in Haiti quickly became unstable. In response, President Wilson sent the U.S. Marines to Haiti to prevent anarchy. In actuality, the act protected U.S. assets in the area and prevented a possible German invasion. The invasion ended with the Haitian-American Treaty of 1915. The articles of this agreement created the Haitian Gendarmerie, essentially a military force made up of U.S. citizens and Haitians and controlled by the U.S. Marines. The United States gained complete control over Haitian finances, and the right to intervene in Haiti whenever the U.S. Government deemed necessary.”  US invasion and occupation of Haiti 1915-1934 https://history.state.gov/milestones/1914-1920/haiti

            In addition to invasion and occupation the US maintained indirect control over Haiti by propping numerous dictators. The US government, multinational corporations and oligarchs have been involved in all the intrigue on the island either directly or indirectly for decades. “Through framing Haiti as a nation that lies outside modernity and progress, its only hope is through developmental aid from former colonizers, international lending agencies, the United Nations (UN), and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).  These global “civil servants” provide development strategies that are amenable to their own economic self-interest. Neoliberal economic policies, odious debts, despotic regimes, and the overthrow of democratic governments are the result of this neocolonial order. Through racial narratives that project Haitians as existing outside modernity, and through neocolonial influences in all phases of Haitian life, Haitians are subject to global institutions that remove their agency and replace it with dependency”. From De to Post to Neo-colonization: A brief history of Haiti’s occupations Jason D. MacCleod https://www.jasondmacleod.com/de-to-post-to-neo-colonization-history-haiti%E2%80%99s-occupations/

            There is more to the Haiti situation than meets the eye.

HBCU Best Practices

                                                                       


HBCU Best Practices

Junious Ricardo Stanton

 

“While HBCUs today look quite different from the schools that were founded in the 1800s, HBCUs now find themselves in a continuing conversation on whether these institutions should exist in a post–Brown v. Board of Education and post-Obama environment. The relevancy of HBCUs has been the subject of academic inquiry, and many media outlets recently have raised the question of the continued existence of these institutions. Some believe that HBCUs are a remaining vestige of segregation, and many cite the opportunity for African Americans to now attend all institutions of higher education-unlike at the time of the founding of HBCUs. The financial exigency in many states are making leaders take a look at the increasingly scarce funding for higher education, and states are taking a hard look at the future of financing HBCUs. States and the federal government have also placed a renewed focus on accountability, and HBCUs have been criticized for their performance on the metrics used to evaluate all higher education institutions. Simply put, the world of higher education is changing.” Repositioning HBCUs for The Future Access, Success Research and Innovation Association of Public and Land Grant Universities John Michael Lee Jr. and Samad Wes Keys  https://www.aplu.org/library/repositioning-hbcus-for-the-future-access-success-research-and-innovation/file

 

            HBCUs are facing a myriad of challenges they didn’t anticipate or contemplate two years ago such as the health and public safety concerns around the pandemic and nation wide lockdowns. Funding shortages, low alumni giving and the ongoing question of the relevance of HBCUs were issues that needed resolution even before the pandemic turned US higher education upside down. Higher education in the US never existed in a vacuum; it was always impacted by paralleling social, economic and political events, HBCUs even more so.

            The history of HBCUs is one of resilience, perseverance, adaptation and innovation often during times of extreme hostility towards African-Americans amidst socio-economic and political volatility. HBCUs had to survive apartheid, virulent racism, color caste and oppression as well as events like the Great Depression and the recession of 2008.

US Higher Education in general suffered during the Great Depression, enrollments declined, there were professor lay-offs, endowments decreased, construction dropped, fundraising was difficult and this reality was far worse for HBCUs. “The Great Depression and World War II left many Black colleges in a financial crisis. Despite improvements in funding in previous years, most land-grant HBCUs were still dismally underfunded when compared to their White counterparts. Private HBCUs were in an even tougher bind. The Depression had wiped out many of their sources of philanthropy. Fundraising was becoming very difficult and distracted administrators from issues of improving education. In 1943, Dr. Fredrick D. Patterson, president of the Tuskegee Institute, published an open letter to the presidents of private HBCUs urging them to band together, pooling their resources and fundraising abilities. The next year, the United Negro College Fund began its activities soliciting donations to private HBCUs, with far greater efficacy than any one of its member colleges alone.” Historically Black Colleges and Universities a Proud History http://www.hbcucouncil.com/HBCU-s.html

The innovative thinking of Tuskegee University’s Dr. Fredrick D. Patterson is needed today. There are areas where HBCUs can collaborate with each other as well as their predominantly white counterparts such as lobbying for more state and federal funds. HBCUs are facing complex challenges and need visionary innovative leadership.

The good news is there are abundant opportunities for HBCUs to rebound and thrive even during times like these. HBCU leaders have to be willing to be candid about their situation and be optimistic they can guide the institution forward. The worst thing an HBCU president can do is lie to his administrative staff, faculty, alumni, constituents and the general public. The second worst thing is to exaggerate the college or university’s situation. Honesty is the best policy.

 HBCUs need leaders who can employ and integrate best practices such as: sound fiscal management, networking and partnering skills both internally and outside the university. HBCU presidents need to have a good relationship with their Trustees, have a sound vision for the institution and be able to engender the support needed to execute that vision, they need a competent administrative team, an effective external affairs department, a comprehensive fundraising strategy and support staff, have a visionary Provost and faculty, a good working relationship with alumni and other constituents and have a positive presence in the surrounding community.

The future can be bright for HBCUs even in these turbulent times. We will continue to examine the good, bad and ugly of HBCUs.

What a Week

                                                                  


What a Week

Junious Ricardo Stanton

 

            The week of September 5, 2021 was quite a week. People in the Southeast, Mid Atlantic and Northeast regions were still reeling from the devastating impact of Hurricane Ida the week before. Heavy rains, flooding, tornadoes, major property and infrastructural damage have left physical scars across the landscape. Damages are reported in the billions of dollars and recovery will take months, the psychological and emotional impact may take even longer to mend.

 On Monday September 6th Americans had a holiday, a day off called Labor Day that was created to honor the struggles and triumphs of workers for better working conditions, higher wages, benefits, shorter working hours and fairer treatment by the management and ownership  class. Those struggles to improve working conditions and a better work environment were bloody, violent and protracted. Unions became a force to be reckoned with both economically and politically. Many men women and children lost their lives and suffered grievous losses to bring about the progress and benefits workers currently enjoy. But today through the relentless efforts of the ruling oligarchy unions and organized labor have been under persistent attack for several decades.

There was a time Labor Day was a major holiday, featuring parades, speeches and the kick off of major political campaigns following a summer hiatus. But this past Monday like many past Labor Days for most people was just a day off, totally devoid of significance and meaning.

Last week we saw amplification of fallout from the withdrawal of US and NATO troops from Afghanistan after twenty years of war and occupation. This was America’s longest running war; a war with little to show for the loss of US, allied and innocent Afghanistan civilian lives, US public treasure and dubious geostrategic objectives. Political partisanship and rancor over the way US troops and citizens departed reminded many of the way US troops left Vietnam after another failed imperial misadventure in Southeast Asia. It was a painful reminder of the realities of imperial overreach.

The politicians who launched this war told the American people they were invading Afghanistan to go after the perpetrators of the 9-11 attacks. But even if you believe the official government narrative (I don’t) the truth is the “highjackers” were Saudi and Egyptian nationals not Afghani citizens. The fact of the matter is the home base of Islamic fanaticism is not Afghanistan but Saudi Arabia! Saudi Arabia is where Wahhabism originated and branched out. Osama bin-Laden was a Saudi Wahhbist. Wahhabist fanatics maintain recruiting the training grounds in Saudi Arabia and around the world, why didn’t the US go after them?!

President Biden facing intense criticism from his Afghanistan withdrawal needed to redeem himself so he ramped up the Great Reset agenda by establishing his COVID vaccination plan. Biden came into office claiming he was going to conquer COVID. Alas he has not. His mask mandates for government employees, his goal to vaccinate the nation by July 4th (which failed) have not resulted in the eradication of the virus. New variants have supposedly sprung up as almost all coronaviruses do (think the common cold, flu and influenza). While it appears to be more contagious the Delta variant is not as lethal (despite the fear mongering by the media).

Biden wants everyone regardless of immunity status to get the jabs which is problematic on so many levels. Biden talking tough is not going to make this go away; neither is ignoring or disregarding long standing realities such as herd immunity, natural antibody resistance and healthy immune systems. Nor will policies that are: unconstitutional, potentially damaging to businesses and divisive going to resolve this situation. What we will see is a hardening of lines, psychological and ideological silos forming, more partisan infighting and the possibility of more violent confrontations among Americans.

Like the Global War on Terror, the government declared wars on: drugs, crime and poverty, have been dismal failures. The only sure fire thing that ever comes of these “wars” is expanded government control, increased government spending to enrich select segments of the oligarchy like the military industrial and prison industrial complexes and Big Pharma but more suffering on our part!

When the Taliban first took over Afghanistan they shut down the opium farms and trade. When the US forced them out, the opium trade magically ballooned exponentially.  Afghanistan reveals the futility of that misguided conflict; drug abuse is rampant spurred on by the invigorated opium trade and recently from the hollowing out of the US economy due to globalization and currently from the emotional trauma, economic and social devastation caused by the government’s policies supposed to mitigate the COVID pandemic!

The wealth gap has increased exponentially during the pandemic. Billionaires became richer overnight while more and more working Americans are sinking deeper into poverty unable to make ends meet! The government programs are an attempt to bribe the people into going along with the government’s program. Soon they will use these benefits (bribes) to induce compliance and conformity if  you fail to obey they will snatch suspend or reduce the benefits!

Speaking of the War on Terror, Saturday marked the twentieth anniversary of 9-11. The ruling class and their government and media sycophants told us 9-11 changed everything and it has. The aftermath of 9-11 wrought major changes in US life, more surveillance, more government intervention and an increasing loss of civil protections and freedom. The USA PATRIOT ACT was written way before 9-11 even happened. https://www.globalissues.org/article/342/the-usa-patriot-act-was-planned-before-911 The National Defense Authorization Act makes it okay for a US president to order extra judicial killings of US citizens and to lock us up without cause or due process.

For anyone willing to open their eyes and think critically last week was really revealing.

Organized Labor and Workers Kicked To The Curb


 


Organized Labor and Workers Kicked to the Curb

Junious Ricardo Stanton

 

“Not long after President Reagan declared the 1981 air traffic controllers strike illegal and fired 11,000 air traffic controllers, corporations began illegally opposing union organizing efforts by aggressively firing union organizers.” The Attack on Labor Unions and why they matter by Martin Hart-Landsberg | 9 Jun 2017

 

            As we pause to celebrate Labor Day let us stop and think about how the ruling oligarchs have successfully and systematically waged a multi-front war on organized labor and the devastating consequences this mugging has had on working people.  The timeline of major attacks goes back to Ronald Reagan. Since the 1980’s when President Ronald Reagan decertified the air traffic controllers union and summarily fired the union’s whole membership, the labor movement, organized labor and its membership have taken hit after hit.

Today the labor movement exerts far less power and influence than it did forty years ago. “The number of employed union members has declined by 2.9 million since 1983. During the same time, the number of all wage and salary workers grew from 88.3 million to 133.7 million. Consequently, the union membership rate was 20.1 percent in 1983 and declined to 11.1 percent in 2015. In 2009, there was a sharp decline in the number of workers overall and in the number of union members. The number of wage and salary workers declined by 4.9 million from 2008 to 2009, and the number of employed union members fell by 771,000. However, the union membership rate was 12.3 percent in 2009, essentially unchanged from 12.4 percent in 2008.” Union Membership in the United States- Megan Dunn and James Walker https://www.bls.gov/spotlight/2016/union-membership-in-the-united-states/pdf/union-membership-in-the-united-states.pdf

           People think the Republicans orchestrated the attack on unions but it has been a bi-partisan affair. Bill Clinton and Al Gore ran their version of the “Southern Strategy” moving the Democratic Party more to the right, becoming more corporate friendly and distancing themselves from the party’s traditional base of organized labor, civil rights and liberalism during their 1992 presidential campaign. History shows Bill Clinton betrayed organized labor even before he became President when he was governor of Arkansas, “After the labor movement helped elect David Pryor, Dale Bumpers and Bill Clinton early in their careers, the three politicians took aggressive anti-union positions, Michael Pierce, an associate professor of history at the University of Arkansas, writes in a recent piece on The Labor and Working-Class History Association’s Labor Online website. Pierce sees a connection between Clinton’s early work against 1978’s Labor Reform Bill (for the Pryor campaign), his later pro-business policies as governor and president and Hillary Clinton’s struggles with working class whites.” The roots and legacy of Bill Clinton’s ‘abandonment’ of organized labor- Lindsey Miller https://arktimes.com/arkansas-blog/2016/11/28/the-roots-and-legacy-of-bill-clintons-abandonment-of-organized-labor

            But it was Reagan who won the major battle against unions mainly because the rest of national organized labor leadership white collar, blue collar and no collar stood passively by and allowed him to decertify the air traffic controllers union. What do you think would have happened if just the Teamsters and Longshoremen Unions stood up to Reagan and demanded he rescind his order and rehire the air traffic controllers or there would be nation wide wildcat strikes?! Almost all commerce would have come to a halt in this country. What do you think would have happened if the public sector unions supported them and went on strike also? Who do you think would have blinked first Reagan or the unions?

Alas that did not happen and as a result working folks are paying the price today. For almost a century there has been an organized assault on organized labor in both the private and pubic sectors led by billionaires like the Koch family and their minions in the state houses around the country. In recent years the Koch family stepped up its anti-labor organizing and funding to create a political infrastructure far beyond the one created by their father Fred Koch.

The elder Koch was a founder of the John Birch Society an arch conservative organization; his sons Charles and David took anti-unionism to a whole ‘nother level, by creating and funding the American Legislative Exchange Council to impact local state and national policies.

Hundreds of ALEC’s model bills and resolutions bear traces of Koch DNA: raw ideas that were once at the fringes but that have been carved into “mainstream” policy through the wealth and will of Charles and David Koch. Of all the Kochs’ investments in right-wing organizations, ALEC provides some of the best returns: it gives the Kochs a way to make their brand of free-market fundamentalism legally binding. No one knows how much the Kochs have given ALEC in total, but the amount likely exceeds $1 million—not including a half-million loaned to ALEC when the group was floundering. ALEC gave the Kochs its Adam Smith Free Enterprise Award, and Koch Industries has been one of the select members of ALEC’s corporate board for almost twenty years. The company’s top lobbyist was once ALEC’s chairman. As a result, the Kochs have shaped legislation touching every state in the country. Like ideological venture capitalists, the Kochs have used ALEC as a way to invest in radical ideas and fertilize them with tons of cash.” ALEC Exposed: The Koch Connection Lisa Graves https://www.thenation.com/article/archive/alec-exposed-koch-connection/

The Koch network still influences not just anti labor ideology and policies, but also in areas such as deregulation, education, Social Security and trade policy!  But ALEC also promotes a broader economic and deregulatory agenda that is not directly tied to the profitability of specific donors—including advocating for cuts to Social Security, unemployment insurance, and food stamps; supporting more trade treaties on the NAFTA model; and cutting public funding for schools, as well as supporting efforts to block union organizing and restrict union participation in political debates.26 Virtually all of the initiatives described in this report—including forced privatization, ‘right to work’ and abolishing minimum-wage and prevailing-wage laws—reflect model statutes developed by ALEC and promoted through its network. This dimension of ALEC’s work is not aimed at immediately enhancing specific donors’ revenues, but at reshaping the fundamental balance of power between workers and employers.” The Legislative Attack On American Wages and Labor Standards 2011-2012 Gordon Lafer https://www.epi.org/publication/attack-on-american-labor-standards/#epi-toc-1

Recent US Supreme Court decisions have made it easier for big money like the Kochs to buy politicians, political parties and set agendas which hurt labor unions and workers. Corporate bottom line priorities have targeted workers and organized collective bargaining. There is an increasingly aggressive push to undermine labor unions and weaken worker power. “The so-called reforms union opponents advocate for would only make a flawed system worse and even less democratic. While proponents of these reforms claim that they are looking out for workers, their efforts are best understood as an effort to weaken workers’ ability to join together in unions and serve as a countervailing power against corporate interests. If unions are weakened even further, there will be fewer checks on the power of corporations in the workplace and the economy at large.” Anti Democratic Attacks on Unions Hurt Working Americans- David Madland, Alex Rowell and Gordon Lafer https://www.americanprogressaction.org/issues/economy/reports/2017/06/26/167907/anti-democratic-attacks-unions-hurt-working-americans/

We can see this in decades of stagnant worker wages, increasing anti union legislation and anti-worker policies that are the result of a massively well coordinated and financed assault on organized labor, collective bargaining and worker engagement. Celebrating Labor Day has become a hollow event another way the ruling class mocks us. See this for further elaboration: How the American Worker Got Fleeced https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2020-the-fleecing-of-the-american-worker/ 

As we celebrate Labor Day stop to think about how workers and unions are systemically being kicked to the curb.

What's The Next Crisis They Want Us To Be Afraid Of?

 



What’s the Next Crisis We Need to Be Afraid Of?

Junious Ricardo Stanton

 

“We should all recall back that poorly aged phrase ‘14 days to stop the spread.’ How many times did the goalposts move? Where are we with that as you read this? First we were told that we needed to ‘flatten the curve.’ Then there needed to be a vaccine. Then the vaccine wasn’t enough. The point is, that COVID-19 became a perpetual excuse for the elites to enact whatever ‘emergency’ measures they wanted – all for your own safety, of course.” The Great Reset The Global Elites’ Plan to Radically Remake Our Economic and Social Lives by Sam Jacobs https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/the-great-reset-the-global-elites-plan-to-radically-remake-our-economic-and-social-lives/

 

We are constantly bombarded with images of the “COVID” virus which is really a computer simulation picture because thus far no one has actually isolated the SARS-COV 2 virus. We are repeatedly targeted with tales of nonstop mutation variants all designed to keep us in a state of panic and hysteria. This is being done so the ruling class can manipulate us into going along with their program where we own less and less and they own everything. All this is being done to hype a coronavirus that has a 98% recovery rate for those who do not have a compromised immune system or chronic diseases and conditions.

Now the masses are being told we need ongoing booster shots. Why? I thought the original injections were safe, 98% effective and free. Turns out they’re not. Every week more and more serious adverse reactions are being reported but not in the mainstream corporate and digital media, yet despite the censorship we are learning more and more inoculated people are getting “COVID”. Plus the shots are certainly not free because our tax dollars are paying Big Pharma for these experimental concoctions!

This will go on and on ad infinitum because it is a boondoggle of epic proportions for the pharmaceutical industry and a way for the ruling class and their puppets like Joe Biden, Boris Johnson, Emmanuel Macron, Justin Trudeau, Angela Merkel and others to grab more power over their nation. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/vaers-cdc-deaths-adverse-events-covid-vaccines-booster-shots-september/

Speaking of power grabs; I have been warning you for over a year about the emerging Great Reset being promoted by the Davos jet setters. These billionaire megalomaniacs are using the COVID “crisis” (that some say they helped create and exploit) as a launching pad to further their nefarious agenda to reconfigure and reengineer the world and life as we know it. I don’t have the space to go into it here so check these Websites out: https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/the-great-reset-the-global-elites-plan-to-radically-remake-our-economic-and-social-lives/, https://www.weforum.org/great-reset/   and  https://thehill.com/opinion/energy-environment/504499-introducing-the-great-reset-world-leaders-radical-plan-to

To recognize their agenda look for their buzz words like “climate change” and “environmental apocalypse”, “we’re all in this together” and “build back better’. They are vague enough and noble sounding to disguise the real intentions of the global elites which are: monopoly ownership of the planet, indirect rule over us and a radical orientation towards life, pushing their transhumanist agenda and what I call their Frankenstein genetic modification to create human, animal and technological cross breeds called chimeras, hybrids and mosaics. 

Don’t take my word for it watch these videos at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VkjA2ag-0M and this one at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ugo2KEV2XQ  COVID is merely the linchpin for the launch of their Brave New World agenda of artificial intelligence, transhumanism and an evolving monopolistic socioeconomic order with the oligarchs at the top and the rest of us as serfs, peons and Zombies on the bottom.

We need to wake up from the stupor the oligarchs have induced via their fear mongering propaganda. https://academyofideas.com/2015/11/fear-and-social-control/ . We have to shake off this fear based psychosis and retake our minds lest the powers that be succeed in driving us totally mad by destroying our minds (menticide). The ball is in our court, think for yourself, do not allow these psychopaths to punk you and make you afraid. We have the power and agency to shape and control our future, don’t give it away or allow anyone to take it from you!

The Propaganda Similarities Between The War on Terror and COVID-19

Junious Ricardo Stanton

 

            The fall of Afghanistan joins a long list of modern US imperial debacles like the US/NATO caused wreckages of Yugoslavia, Iraq, the destruction of Libya and the crisis in Yemen. The corporate media is framing this like its Joe Biden’s fault when every president since George W. Bu$h has had a hand in this mess. Each if them is complicit in crimes against humanity.

Over two trillion dollars in US taxpayer funds has been spent on the Afghanistan fiasco and for what, to enrich the Military Industrial Security Complex?! The corporate and digital media owned by the oligarchy is spinning Afghanistan in a way that obfuscates the real deal, that we were duped into going along with imperial overreach via the psychological warfare waged by the elites on the American people! Propaganda, intimidation and coercion were used to force acquiesce and consent to a totally bogus “Global War on Terror”.  In the end, what have we gotten from this war, what benefits have you received, how much money did you get from these imperialist misadventures? How much of the CIA’s Afghanistan opium profits have you gotten?

Remember how following 9-11 pacifists were demonized? “You are either with us or you are with the terrorists” was the manta of the nitwit in the White House George W. Bu$h. Remember how the Neo Cons and corporate media vilified Congresswoman Barbara Lee because she was the only Congress person with the moral fortitude, prescience and love of humanity to vote against the invasion of Afghanistan?!  Remember how they tried to destroy Country and Western artists’ Dixie Chicks career. Did you know the Clear Channel media conglomerate compiled a list of peace songs or anti-war songs they forbade their DJs to play? Does anyone remember how the establishment hounded Ken Olberman and Phil Donahue off MSNBC because they opposed the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq?! Do you remember how warmongers like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly rose in popularity and fame by parroting the party line about “jihadist terrorists”?

Do you see any similarities between what happened post 9-11 and what is going on nowadays with the COVID narrative and response? If not, you have failed to learn a valuable lesson of history, that governments lie and use intimidation to get their way. As we speak, opposition to the mitigation protocols against COVID is being attacked, suppressed and censored.  I had one of my videos taken off of YouTube!

The oligarchy uses the same ol’ playbook over and over again. If anything the fall of Afghanistan should reveal the propaganda and mind control games they run on us!

“To get a glimpse of our potential future, it’s worth considering past narratives pushed by governments. The war on terrorism has been promoted for years as an endless threat, and it’s conveniently created a blank check for defense and intelligence spending, funneling taxpayer cash into the pockets of defense contractors and their shareholders. Similarly, the war on climate change created carbon tax slush funds and transfers of wealth to underdeveloped countries under the guise of climate-change projects that are prone to misuse, exploitation and corruption.

In both cases, anyone not adhering to the narrative of the need to fight terrorism and climate change using government resources is treated the same way as those now questioning government’s insistence on introducing freedom-suppressing infrastructure under the pretext of managing a virus with an extremely low mortality rate.

And like the wars against terrorism and climate change, the war on COVID-19 has created true believers out of pure fear. There are no better pawns onto which to foist a fear-driven agenda. And what might that agenda be? It’s hard not to see that it amounts to some form of control.” Government COVID-19 propaganda follows a well-worn path, Rachel Marsden https://www.minotdailynews.com/opinion/national-columnists/2021/07/government-covid-19-propaganda-follows-a-well-worn-path/

The media is blaming Joe Biden as Afghanistan crumbles and rightly so because as a US senator he was a big time warmonger who supported every war, every police action and “intervention” the corporatists and Military Industrial Complex called for. Afghanistan is merely a snapshot in time revealing how the ruling class dupes and bamboozles us to get what they want which is compliance and control.

            The same tactics they used to sell the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq are being used to sell COVID inoculations which by the way are causing serious side effects and injury. https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/fda-knew-all-along/

Failing to learn the lessons of Viet Nam the psychopathic ruling class driven by hubris and lust for power have repeated the same mistakes, they could care less about the consequences; just like Big Pharma and their supporters have no concern whatsoever about our safety, health and well being.

 Now they are telling folks they’ll need boosters to protect them from ever mutating variants. Duh, to survive all viruses either mutates or they die. That doesn’t automatically make them more lethal. It will be like the flu shot only now they are coercing everyone to take it. Their revenues will be in the trillions, just like the Military Industrial Complex war profits.

The same game plan, the same BS will equal the same results unless we take back our minds and our lives by resisting just like many of us resisted the Viet Nam War and the imperial overreach of Afghanistan and Iraq.
