HOW THE ELITE DOMINATE THE WORLD – PART 3: 90% OF WHAT YOU WATCH ON TELEVISION IS CONTROLLED BY JUST 6 GIANT CORPORATIONS

How much is your view of the world shaped by what you see on television? On average, Americans spend more than 150 hours watching television every month, and it is called “programming” for a reason. If you allow anyone to pour ideas and information into your mind for five hours a day, it is going to change how you look at reality. Everyone has an agenda, and every single news program, television show and movie is trying to alter your views. Sadly, our society has become absolutely addicted to media, and the mainstream media is completely dominated by the elite. In fact, about 90 percent of the programming that comes through your television is controlled by just 6 gigantic media corporations. Most of us are willingly plugging ourselves into this “propaganda matrix” that is completely dominated by the elite for several hours each day, and that gives them an enormous amount of power over the rest of us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would suggest that the mainstream media doesn't have the hold over us it used to, due to the rise of independent media, and the degree to which Americans have awakened to the reality of the degree to which they are lied to by both the government and Corporate media, 24/7.

We pay intelligent attention more than we used to, because we understand that the narratives being regurgitated verbally by the corporate presstitutes are just that; narratives to further the agendas of those in the bowels of power in the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika.

And as I mentioned in a previous post today, those agendas are almost always engineered to further protect and defend this country's economic hegemony, and primarily focus on war as the only way of accomplishing this. If you didn't see this article from blacklistednews.com today, I encourage you to read it.

CNN Awarded First FAA Waiver Allowing Drone Flights Over Crowds

CNN received a waiver allowing routine drone flights above crowds, a milestone for the industry seeking greater use of the remote-controlled devices for everything from insurance inspections to covering news.

The approval is the first time the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has granted a waiver for unlimited flights over people, the news network said in an emailed statement. The standards used in the application can be applied to other applicants, potentially opening vast new uses by the media and other industries for so-called unmanned aerial systems, or UAS.

“This waiver signifies a critical step forward not only for CNN’s UAS operations, but also the commercial UAS industry at large,” said David Vigilante, senior vice president of legal for CNN.

Toxic Hollywood culture exposed

List of alleged Harvey Weinstein victims continues to grow

Media mogul Harvey Weinstein has been outed by nearly 30 women in a Hollywood sex scandal that has rocked the industry and set the media ablaze.

How deep has this casting couch culture infected the ivory towers Hollywood?

And just how many men and women have found themselves in the webs of these serial sexual predators?

The Creed of Sleaze has a Warm Spot in Hell

The easiest way to destroy a country is to eliminate the moral fiber of her people.

As the predator ethos expands into every corner and crevice of society, the pervaders of filth dominate the mentally disturbed minds that have emerged as the new measure of public amorality.

The linkage between the war party within the District of Criminals and the screenplays used to direct the action of mass murder in the green lighted picture shows are startling.

NYT Claims No Liberal Bias

On October 12th, in a D.C. media panel discussion about coverage of the Trump administration overseen by moderator and columnist Jim Rutenberg, New York Times White House correspondents Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker were joined by executive editor Dean Baquet. About half an hour into the conversation, the topic of liberal bias was raised, resulting in categorical denials.

Understanding The ‘Fake News’ Hysteria

For the most part, “fake news” is a fake concept designed by the corporate news media to discredit those who challenge the official U.S. hegemonic narrative. The typical MSM fake news accusation starts with some egregious fictionalization and then morphs over to the real targets: the subversives, those who would dispute foundational elements of the official history or its recent approved updates.

The Endgame of Financialization: Stealth Nationalization

As you no doubt know, central banks don’t actually print money and toss it out of helicopters; they create a digital liability and use this new currency to buy assets such as bonds and stocks. Central banks have found that they can take control of the stock and bond markets by buying up as much as these markets as is necessary to force price and yield to do the central banks’ bidding.

BBC’s hissy fit over Brexit bias research PROVES it has something to hide

Let’s look at the evidence. I recently asked the Corporation for a list of every guest it invited to the Proms this summer. The answer was very revealing.

Bosses spent £19,020 entertaining dozens of luvvies and politicians.

And guess what? The vast majority of those treated to free drinks and a night at the Royal Albert Hall — courtesy of TV licence payers — were vocal defenders of the EU and prominent critics of Brexit.

They included Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, David Attenborough, Judi Dench, Tory politician Lord Patten, Financial Times editor Lionel Barber, Guardian ­editor Katharine Viner and ex-Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

Theresa May, Chancellor Philip ­Hammond and Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn — who all backed Remain — also accepted a free ticket and were hosted on separate nights in a private box by £450,000-a-year BBC director-general Lord Hall.

Kissinger’s timely guidance to the President during “the calm before the storm” should give the American public considerable cause for concern.

Trump goes full shabbos-goy – The Saker

For 10 years I have considered that my prediction of a US attack on Iran was the biggest analytical failure in my career. I now hope and pray that it will remain so...

At the risk of deepening what still might be my mistaken prognosis of 2007 I will say that yes, the USA will probably attack Iran. Since there is exactly ZERO chance of Iran caving in to the latest US-Israeli threats, not attacking Iran will now represent a major loss of face and humiliation for Trump and his Neocon masters. So the USA will go to war yet again, not for any rational reason, but solely because Bibi Netanyahu “owns” Trump and Israel “own” the USA.

FBI 'HAND-IN-HAND' WITH VEGAS PD, BEGIN DAMAGE CONTROL: "THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY... NOBODY IS ATTEMPT TO HIDE ANYTHING"

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department appeared to be visibly shaken when told reporters Friday that he wasn’t attempting to be “subversive” in previous statements he made surrounding details of the October 1 massacre at the Route 91 Music Festival where 58 people lost their lives.

As Intellihub details, in the ‘no questions’ conference, which members of the independent media were not allowed to attend, the sheriff said that he’s “well aware” of the timeline dispute released by MGM Management on Thursday which claims that Stephen Paddock fired his weapon into the crowd just seconds after Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos was struck by a bullet in the 32nd-floor hallway outside the shooter’s end suite.

The sheriff stuck to his guns on Friday when he told reporters that he still ‘stands by’ his latest timeline which lists Campos’s encounter with Paddock at 9:59 p.m., 6 minutes prior Paddock’s first known volley of fully-automatic gunfire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this is true, why was the following confirmed by an independent media reporter Thursday?!?

Video: Reporter Doorstops Vegas Security Guard’s House: “I Can Confirm His Family Has A Gag Order”

The story goes on to confirm, on that Linda Loomer "doorstopped" the Campos family and stated the following on her twitter account on Thursday:

"I just doorstopped #JesusCampos after it was reported he canceled his interview with @seanhannity. I can confirm his family has a gag order.

"According to a video Loomer posted on Periscope, Campos has armed security and it appears that an unmarked law enforcement vehicle is parked outside his home.https://twitter.com/lauraloomer/status/918689132137791488 …"

So, the question, which I am unable to ask Sheriff Lombardo, as a member of the Independent Media would be, if, in fact, as you say, there is nothing to hide here, why the gag order against the Campos family, if Loomer is correct in her reporting?!? And would you, and the FBI, not have had to have that gag order issued by a Las Vegas judge?!?

I want to know the name of the judge who issued that order, if such an order exists, and under what circumstances it was issued, thank you very much.

And at the moment, the only reason I can think of is, to cover up a false flag gone horribly wrong to prevent further massive embarrassment of whatever government agency which cobbled it together, with the sure and certain "belief", at the time of its creation, that the American people would swallow the government narrative, hook, line, and sinker, which they have not.

Corporate Media Have Few Apologies For Getting IRS Scandal Backwards

Back in May 2013, corporate media outlets expressed alarm at a report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) that suggested that from 2004 through 2013, the IRS had applied extra scrutiny to groups applying for tax-exempt status with conservative-sounding names. The report, “based on concerns expressed by members of Congress,” said that 96 groups applying for 501(c)(4) exemptions had been targeted for heightened questioning because of terms like “Tea Party” and “Patriots” in their names.

Julian Assange on Roger Stone & Accusations About WikiLeaks and Trump Campaign Ties to Russia

Microsoft has joined Facebook in saying it is investigating whether Russian operatives paid for “inappropriate” pro-Trump ads on its Bing search engine and other platforms. Social media giant Facebook has said a Russian company placed thousands of ads on their network at a cost of more than $100,000, including some that targeted states crucial to Trump’s victory.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo has blasted Wikileaks as a hostile intelligence service that is often abetted by state actors like Russia, and Trump adviser Roger Stone declined to confirm to the House Intelligence Committee that he was directly in contact with WikiLeaks about damaging information on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

We get response from Julian Assange, the founder and editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks.

Where’s the Beef? The Senate Intel Committee and Russia

The basic claim of Russia meddling that has yet to be proved.

Burr’s statement is an example of “confirmation bias” which is the tendency to interpret information in a way that confirms one’s own preexisting beliefs. In this case, Burr and his co-chair, Senator Mark Warner have already accepted the findings of a hastily slapped-together Intelligence report that was the work of “hand-picked” analysts who were likely chosen to produce conclusions that jibed with a particular political agenda. In other words, the intelligence was fixed to fit the policy.

Did the Indians Understand the Concept of Private Property?

One of Ayn Rand’s most notorious claims is that Europeans and their descendants were justified in driving Indian tribes off their lands because aboriginal Americans “did not have the concept of property or property rights,” and because they “wish[ed] to continue a primitive existence.” Rand also claims the Indian tribes had no right to the land they lived on because “they didn’t have a settled society,” and “had predominantly nomadic tribal ‘cultures.'” Rand even uses scare quotes around “cultures” to perhaps imply that Indian culture was not any type of culture at all.

Twitter suspends Rose McGowan's account

Over the last week or so, rumors about movie executive Harvey Weinstein have turned into actual reports of sexual harassment and rape by The New York Times and The New Yorker. As a result of those public reports, he has been fired by the board of his own company, while many in Hollywood (and beyond) have come forward to talk more openly about incidents of sexual harassment and assault. One of the most notable voices has been that of actress Rose McGowan, who tweeted last year that her own assault has "been an open secret in Hollywood/Media & they shamed me while adulating my rapist." Tonight, Twitter temporarily pulled the plug on her account.

Rose McGowan’s Twitter account suspended: ‘There are powerful forces at work’

McGowan also shared a photo of the notification Twitter sent her stating that she would not be able to tweet, retweet or like other tweets for 12 hours.

“We have determined this account violated the Twitter Rules, so we’ve temporarily limited some of your account features,” the message from the social media company read.

McGowan has been at the center of the Weinstein sexual assault controversy as she was among the several women named in a New York Times report that first outed the film producers behavior. Since then, McGowan has been critical of the The Weinstein Company on Twitter and other actors she said who were aware of what was going on including Ben Affleck.

Most Americans Say Trump Making North Korea Situation Worse

WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea’s nuclear weapons development is spooking most Americans, and two-thirds of them say President Donald Trump’s war of words with the isolated nation’s leader is making the situation worse. Less than 1 in 10 thinks Trump’s comments are making it better.
Those are the findings of a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, as tensions between the adversaries escalate and North Korea comes closer to its goal of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the continental U.S.

(*For the record , I disagree with the concept that most Americans oppose Trump , on this , or torture , or stumping the first amendment during Flag Gate . No matter what he does , he's the outsider , that makes him a victim , and most Americans feel a patriotic duty to stand by Trump , unquestionably , that if they don't , they're somehow unfit to hold their position . this is Fake NEWS! , designed to make Americans look like something their not .)

Trump Threatens NBC Over Nuclear Weapons Report

President Trump threatened on Wednesday to use the federal government’s power to license television airwaves to target NBC in response to a report by the network’s news division that he contemplated a dramatic increase in the nation’s nuclear arsenal.

In a story aired and posted online Wednesday morning, NBC reported that Mr. Trump said during a meeting in July that he wanted what amounted to a nearly tenfold increase in the nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile, stunning some members of his national security team. It was after this meeting that Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson reportedly said Mr. Trump was a “moron.”

Follow the money. The Eurogroup rules the Eurozone and its 19 member states. The first rule of Eurogroup is: ‘You don’t talk about Eurogroup!’

Part of the problem of criticizing the “pan-European project” is that you have multiple bodies which overlap. And you also have some nations which are part of one, but not another. Or which pay into one body, but abstain from another.

A clear analysis is needed of the most important part of the pan-European project: the Eurozone. The Eurozone is the most important because it controls the money in the world’s largest macro-economy.

Russia Threatens Retaliatory Restrictions on US Media Outlets

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova is warning that Russia is considering applying restrictions to certain US media outlets in retaliation for recent US measures taken against Russia’s RT news channel.

Last month, the US Justice Department ordered RT to register as a “foreign agent,” which requires them to make a massive number of disclosures. The Foreign Agent Registration Act was meant to target foreign lobbyists and politicians, and had virtually never been used against journalists before.

US lawmakers had been hyping RT as a “propaganda” network, complaining about their narrative being dissimilar on key issues from domestic US media. Yet other nations’ media across the world often differs with US media priorities, and the moves against RT are unheard of.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I link to the English-edition of rt.com and sputniknews.com on a nearly daily basis.

I find the reporting and analysis of world events in these blogs rather calm; most generally level-headed, and non-warmongering, which one can certainly not say about the presstitutes and whorespondents in the corporate media of this country, faithfully regurgitating government propaganda.

Britain 'draws up battle plan for war with North Korea'

Britain is reportedly preparing for the possibility of war breaking out with North Korea as concerns rise that another provocative missile test could trigger a military response by the US.

North Korea is being closely watched amid fears it could launch another long-range missile test on Tuesday to mark the anniversary of the founding of its ruling party.

Bellicose rhetoric from Donald Trump has heightened tensions in the region in recent months, prompting British officials to draw up military plans for a response to a break out of hostilities, it was reported.

The possible move to deploy it ahead of schedule drew comparisons with the start of the Falklands War.

"In the Falklands we had to react to an event and HMS Illustrious was accelerated to respond," a Navy source told the Mail.

"This was a reaction to protect British territory, however. In this case [North Korea], the UK would be part of a united global coalition. We would see what support we could give."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that none of this is actually sourced, and even the writers of this article wanted to distance themselves from responsibility for having written it, by embracing anonimity, and only identifying them as "Telegraph Reporters".

I frankly think, at this point, that this was simply a "trial balloon" on the part of the British Government, to see and gague British public reaction to such a move, if, in fact, such plans are being contemplated at this time.

On Saturday, his tales proved too much for one of his favorite platforms for broadcasting those accusations: Facebook.

The social media network said it had blocked a profile under Mr. Guo’s name and taken down another page associated with him. Facebook said the content on both pages had included someone else’s personal identifiable information, which violates its terms of service.

Facebook investigated the accounts after receiving a complaint, according to a spokeswoman.

'Where's Harvey Weinstein?' SNL stays SILENT on sexual abuse allegations against movie mogul much to the anger of social media who accuse the show of liberal hypocrisy

Saturday Night Live joined the ranks of entertainment programs being called out for not commenting on sexual harassment allegations against former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Social media users skewered the decades old live sketch comedy show, with many highlighting the programs hypocrisy in not going after one of Hollywood's biggest players.

'Why didn't big mouth Michael Che' say anything about Harvey Weinstein on SNL "Weekend Update"? He's got so much opinion about everything else,' Pastor Darrell Scott asked contentiously.

LONGEST WAR IN US HISTORY TURNS 16 TODAY – THOUSANDS DEAD, NO END IN SIGHT & IT’S GETTING WORSE

On this day 16 years ago, less than one month after 9/11, President George W. Bush delivered a televised address from the White House announcing the beginning of the Afghanistan War.

“On my orders, the United States military has begun strikes against al Qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan,” he said.

What Bush did not say was the fact that the War in Afghanistan would become the longest war in United States history. Thousands of American lives and billions of taxpayer dollars would be wasted at the expense of the U.S. war machine, and the “War on Terrorism” would only create more terrorism as a result.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in their origin, he was - and continues to be- from a rational point of view, completely correct.

The war in Afghanistan was never about the then Afghan government not giving up Osama Bin Laden, the labeled terrorist allegedly ultimately responsible for 9/11.

And please remember: President Bush had business ties to the Bin Laden Family through the scandalous BBCI, in the creation of Arbusto Energy.

President Bush and the bin Laden family have been connected through dubious business deals since 1977, when Salem, the head of the bin Laden family business, one of the biggest construction companies in the world, invested in Bush's start-up oil company, Arbusto Energy, Inc. James R. Bath, a friend and neighbor, was used to funnel money from Osama bin Laden's brother, Salem bin Laden, to set up George W. Bush in the oil business, according to The Wall Street Journal and other reputable sources. Through a tangled web of Saudi multi-millionaires, Texas oilmen, and the infamous Bank of Credit and Commerce International, Bush was financially linked with the bin Laden family until Salem met an untimely end in a freak flying accident near San Antonio in 1988. The infamous BCCI was shut down in 1991 with some $10 billion in losses.

So one has to ask: did the "freak flying accident" which killed Salem Bin Laden a true "accident", or "wet work" (i.e., an assassination) to get him out of the way because he knew too much about the financial world of the Bush family?!? Understanding, as we now do, that the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika collectively use assassinations as a routine tool of statescraft, it certainly is not beyond the realm of possibility.

But getting back to Afghanistan, and the reason the OUSSA is still there; it's about controlling the pipelines; controlling the embarassment of riches in minerals, fattening the bottom line of the military-industrial complex and making absolutely certain that the opium continues to flow, for those OUSSA alphabet-soup agencies' off the shelf operations over which Congress has utterly zero oversight.

These are the reasons that NATO and the US are still occupying Afghanistan; the reasons, most likely, they will never leave Afghanistan, no matter how many of our service members get killed and maimed for life, not to mention the innocent Afghanis who will suffer the same fates.

This war has never been about "protecting America's way of life"; honor; bringing democracy to the Afghani people: it is all about the money, and the corporations who profit from this war, period, end of discussion.

CNN creates fake news: Demonstrates "bump stock" with grenade launcher and silencer, no bump stock

So instead of a bump stock they show an adjustable stock… adjusting? On a rifle with a freaking grenade launcher and silencer? Why didn’t they also include a 1000 round banana clip looking like a wooly mammoth tusk while they were at it? Geeze CNN is beyond ridiculous. They need to have all of their licenses for whatever they do just revoked.

Identities of Three US Green Berets Killed in Niger Released, Fourth Found Dead

On Wednesday, ten to 12 Green Berets were accompanying a patrol of Nigerien forces about 120 miles north of the capital city of Niamey. They came within 20 miles of the Mali border, whereupon approximately 40-50 assailants attacked. AQIM is one of several militant groups currently in revolt against the Malian government.

The ambush was successful, killing four Green Berets and five Nigerien troops. Gunships from France, which runs their own military operations in Mali, arrived at the scene and dispersed the ambushers. Three Green Beret deaths were confirmed by the Pentagon almost immediately, with the fourth announced on Friday.

US Withdrawal From Iran Nuclear Deal May Lead to Tehran ‘Outbreaks’

Russian State Duma’s International Affairs Committee Chairman Leonid Slutsky told Sputnik on Thursday that a possible US withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran may lead to possible “outbreaks” from Tehran.

Earlier on Thursday, the Washington Post newspaper reported that US President Donald Trump intended to “de-certify” the nuclear deal with Iran next week.

US will lose the trade war with China – Jim Rogers

If they put sanctions on China in a big way, it brings the whole world economy down.

Sanctions are sanctions. They could do sanctions which are not very important or don’t do much damage. And then they will have good public relations which says they have sanctions, but it is meaningless. I would suspect if anything, that is what they will start with.

Kaspersky Lab Denies WSJ Allegations of Hacking NSA

Consistently at or near the top of security software maker rankings, Russian-based Kaspersky Lab continues to attract suspicion, based on little to no evidence, of being a “threat” to US national security.

This week, the allegations came out of the Wall Street Journal, which claimed that an NSA contractor who ran Kaspersky antivirus on his computer was hacked, and immediately concluded that Kaspersky hacked him to get NSA data for the Russian government.

Kaspersky founder Eugene Kaspersky mocked the claim as “like the script of a C movie.” He offered an alternate explanation for the data loss, that the NSA tools on the computer were correctly identified as new forms of malware by Kaspersky’s software.

The supposition that being a security software company and Russia-based makes them tantamount to Russian spies has been enough of an excuse for US officials to increasingly demonize the company, despite the lack of real evidence of wrongdoing, let alone culpability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the Wall Street Jerks' article provided was absolutely no tangible proof of their allegations whatsoever, and there was utterly no sourcing to these allegations.

Mike and I have used Kaspersky security products, and consider them excellent; but of course, we're not the ones desperately trying to demonize Russia toward the goal of starting a shooting war against it!!

Victoria and Abdul – Re-Writing History to indoctrinate Todays Society

If I was writing this as a mere film review then I honestly couldn’t say much. I wasn’t as impressed as I had expected to be. Dame Judi Dench was wonderful and the filming and costumes are superb. But overall it was pretty boring, trite and shallow and about as historically accurate as Braveheart! A two star film at maximum. Most reviewers I read seem to agree.

But as a moderate dud it would not have left me so disturbed. What bothered me were a couple of things – the history and the current day indoctrination.
