Life with a Deceitful Media

 

If it were just the media perhaps things would be a little less, how can we put this politely, messed up. But the problem is in Western Civilization media encompasses a little bit more than just the news or even including the entertainment which is included by adding a word to make multimedia. As soon as we add that word, we have thrown in the Internet. There is one more arm of the multimedia conglomerate which was the most recently added, education. With all of these tentacles, the media has unbelievable power and it is only growing. As the Internet gains power, the Internet will become reality and will paint the history which is believed by the majority of the population. Educators will rely on the Internet as a teaching aid and eventually it will replace all other forms of knowledge and will become the infinite knowledge base. The media has its imperfections and the Internet is all these things, their starting-point, their amplifier and their eventual home where they flourish or die. The correction factors are human just as are their original authors and those who store the results and those who decide which results are stored and which are permitted to fall through the cracks in the electronic net, the Internet. When everything depends upon a shaky foundation, the future can only amplify each tremor until something important breaks and when eventually that something is important enough the whole world can change overnight. That is what results when the past becomes flexible and can be altered by anything from a mere whim to an intentional plot and everything in between, but it will be the little cracks in the truth of what was which will eventually destroy truth.

 

There has been a truth which was drastically altered somewhere back long enough ago that the lie has become the accepted truth. Even today, it is not understood completely who made the change to introduce illusion to replace reality and then promote leaving the illusion in place of all reason. The evidence often comes to the fore only to be sent scurrying back into the blurred truths of the past. What was once known and understood by academics, politicians and many honest and honorable people, but those days have all but melted away into what will soon be the distant past. But we have been informed that there is a cavernous distance on the political spectrum between the two major parties in the United States, the Democrats and the Republicans. We are told that the democrats hold the elite and more enlightened side at the leftmost end of the political spectrum and that the Republicans staunchly hold pragmatic far right end of the political spectrum. That is what is depicted on the top picture which one may have seen in some learned textbook or drawn on the board walking into a lecture on the political ethics or modern politics in the United States. You will be told other lies such as that the Communists are on the left and the Nazis were on the right, also depicted on the top image. The Communists are always said to be even further to the left than are the Democrats and the Nazis to the further right than the Republicans. Often the Democrats are said to be in the center while the Republicans are still reputed to be on the far right almost neighbors with the Nazis. Well, allow a welcome reality which can and remains on the Internet of the political spectrum represented on the bottom image below. The Democrats and Republicans are almost next-door neighbors and both situated and slowly sliding further leftward with time. Then there are the Communists, the Nazis and the new world bad boy, Kim Jong-un, all even further to the left. Oh, and for your information, very little exists to the actual right of center except the theories which founded the United States stated in fairly plain English in the Constitution of the United States along with the Bill of Rights (see image below). These truths are taught but in a few university and college courses in a few limited and smaller institutions, and that is all the more sorrowful.

 

Political Spectrum Taught Versus Actual

 

In many ways, in an honest study of history, the societies which traditionally were most destructive to freedom, liberty and individualism with rights for the people have been those which favor the government and its power over that of the people and the individual. It matters little whether the Statist Imperialist were Kings and Queens, Dictators, Pharos, Czars, Führer, Emperor, Dear Leader, Caliph, Judges, Sultan, Prophets or whatever title they may choose. They may even choose to have elected officials who cannot make any real difference. The government itself becomes the holder and enforcer of true power and holds the politicians hostage, as they owe their wealth and power to the government as without the government the people could take back that which they lost to the bureaucracy. When the state holds the power then the people will fear the government and when the people hold the power then the government fears the people. There are no places left on earth where the people are feared by governments any longer as the governments have arms and powers which the people cannot match. The United States Second Amendment was actually intended to allow the people to be as armed as was the government but as the government gained more powerful weaponry they passed new laws for the safety of the people, or so were the claims, and disallowed the people the same weapons as the government, as the military. The reality was by limiting the power held by the people the government was protecting the government, not the people, them they were enslaving. The one redeeming factor in a few selected nations is that the military, which holds the true and final arbiter of all power and thus the governance, is comprised of citizen volunteers and thus more aligned with the people than their political leaders. Even so, often the final decision lies with their commanders who they have been trained to follow and obey.

 

Should there come a point where the people and the government, not necessarily the highest elected officials but the so-called Deep State, the bureaucracy, should come into direct conflict over a power grab by the government which the people see as illegal and unjust and they were to rise up, if the military were to side with the people, then the power would return to be with the people and the power balance could be returned to the lines such as those in the Constitution of the United States or to an even older constitution, the one promised by Hashem to Israel where the Kings were to have limited power and wealth with the people and the tribes themselves holding the real power while the King was held short of absolute power as described in Devarim – Deuteronomy – Chapter 17: 14-20. This was the initial and first great limitation on political power to be introduced into human history. This limitation of Kingly power along with the Ten Commandments and the other precepts of Judaism upon which Christianity was placed like a cloak to conceal parts and regalize other parts and from this and with time came Western civilization and the modern Western World. But there are those on the extremes of society which the media falsely states posit on the extreme left and right, they are both extreme statists and anti-individualists, and wish to return all to the barbarous days of early history. And these are things which the media will control and spin to make their own power increased and merged with the government, the bureaucracy. Together they would drain the people of their freedoms, their wealth and over time their desire to live and be free. Once that spark has been extinguished, it will not be rekindled even in the time of their children or likely their grandchildren, if it will ever be rekindled. Should the Hebrew Bible ever be erased from human memory along with everything which it spawned directly, then the spark which kindled freedom will have died and been wantonly buried. This is what both extremes desired to bring about given the opportunity in Charlotte. Only one of them has the current ability to even attempt such a grab of power. That is the one backed by this monster we call the media, a product of society but too often corrupted by those hungry to tell everyone how they must live. That is the real evil of statists.

Boldness of Lies Wafting on Evil Breezes

 

One can check for the following quote with a search using the entire quote and will find the original article in multiple places. Well, we just had to have our say which will hopefully be a little different and perhaps cast more light onto the subject and the many arenas where such events are being carried out by different players but all with the same means. They use lies, accusations, and demands in the hopes of being believed and thus discrediting all opposition, all in the truest form of the real fascists. This is a game which has been played before and these are the same exact steps, the same exact lies, the same exact accusations and soon we will see similar violence which those who silently instigate much of the violence promise to save us from the violence and this has all been used by the previous usurpers. We have spoken of this and now it creeps into another political game which means that this time the usurpers desire more than one nation or one continent but this time they aim for the world. Now here is the latest war cry of the usurper claiming that all evil is born everywhere but in their camp, the first lie, the introduction to what will come.

We are undergoing a process of fascistization of Israeli politics. These are hard words but they are true. Artists, actors and playwrights are under threat, Supreme Court justices and judges generally are threatened, journalists are fired and are threatened, journalists and newspapers are under threat of being closed by the authorities, and now also academics are under threat and can say nothing.” Head of Opposition, Isaac Herzog, Holon, June, 24, 2017

Head of Opposition Isaac Herzog

 

This is the same tired accusation made repeatedly by Mr. Herzog and his ilk every time there is anything introduced which might permit equal opportunity into the hallmark institutions which currently are leftist strongholds. Here is a simple but not complete list of such institutions around the world which the leftists control with near complete impunity and lack of opposition; mainstream media, NGOs (nongovernmental organizations), courts (with the exception of the United States where the judges in the courts are appointed by elected officials, and even in the United States the left are strong within the court system as has been evidenced by their use against President Trump), and Academia where tenure is denied professors unless they are proven and tested to be pure leftists. The media is meeting a problem which the leftists would dearly love to strangle, the Internet and the free exchange of information. The Internet also provides an alternative to the information put forth by the NGOs. What has not been prevented by the Internet is the marriage between the media and the NGOs where the NGO makes statements or accusations demeaning those not aligned exclusively with their causes and the media amplifies their words repeating them in print which is in turn used by the NGOs as validation of their views which is again repeated in the media with this circle continuing all too often ad nauseum.

 

The fastest way to get the leftist political class screaming is to introduce any measure of fairness or free debate into the systems which they control. Examples include altering the appointment of new judges taking it from the existing legal system and giving it to elected officials who are answerable to the electorate, to the people. When such was suggested in Israel, the entirety of the media, academia, the legal associations and the leftist politicians who are not in power and are unlikely to regain power unless through subterfuge, exploded in the media in op eds as well as went running to the Supreme Court screaming, “foul.” Our friend, Isaac Herzog, gave a prime example of the courts siding with the left politically and further during the furor where demands were being posed to force the Prime Minister to relinquish the communications portfolio regarding which Herzog’s self-praise, even before the justices’ decision, judging by his Facebook post, it was important to him that he make clear that he himself filed the petition and that the “High Court in an unusual step issued a conditional order that directs the Prime Minister and the Attorney General to explain why they won’t respond to the petition.” Going a step further, Herzog and his people maneuvered to spread word of the court’s decision to the television news channels for prime time. If only some professor would offer a course selectively examining the political brilliance displayed by Opposition Leader Isaac Herzog in the fight against the imperialist Prime Minister Netanyahu trying to run the government all by himself (now that we have posed the idea, any bets on how long before some professor actually uses this in his coursework?), we would have hit the trifecta, courts, media and academia.

 

When there was an attempt to have NGOs which receive over half their funding from outside of Israel report themselves as being foreign NGOs, and not pass themselves off as Israeli NGOs, the left in the media went into an uproar and the political left declared that totalitarianism was coming to Israel. The Guardian reported that Isaac Herzog stated that, “The NGO law … is indicative, more than anything, of the budding fascism creeping into Israeli society.” Just in case you were wondering, the political “F” word pops right out of Isaak’s mouth whenever things move even the slightest towards the center. Isaak fears that should things ever be moved from pegged so far to the left that the only thing keeping the needle from sliding out of view is the little peg holding it where it can be located, but the needle is bending. The people are getting tired of the universality of leftist control in every arena throughout Israel except elections, but they refuse to permit equal footing in their little fiefdoms, media, courts, and academia.

 

But Israel is not the only place where the left is screaming of injustices, cheating and of having been robbed. Yes, we’re speaking of the elections, surprise elections according to many, of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. If you have been reading much of the mainstream media, especially the New York Times, then you are pretty much convinced that the Russians were running President Trump’s campaign and without Putin, Trump would have lost. You would also have believed that had Hillary been elected, her first move would have been to fire then Director of the FBI James Comey. Then, suddenly when President Trump “mishandled” the firing of former FBI Director Comey, suddenly he was the hero of the hour who would hand the Senate Committee investigating Trump and, you know, we forget what. The important thing is that as soon as Mr. Comey’s testimony did not lead to Trump being impeached, he became a worthless miscreant who never should have been Director of the FBI once again. Then there are the courts in the United States which took turns preventing President Trump from making a legal alteration to immigration policy claiming that it broke his campaign pledges. That actually was one judge’s reason which made breaking a campaign pledges into a legal reason for a decision. Meanwhile, the liberal and leftist outrage had barely lost even an ounce of steam since the results came out and Hillary conceded. There are still wall-to-wall postings which seem to go in circles from one person to the next until they complete the circuit and start all over again as if they were brand new. This, too, is one of the steps in the real attempted fascist takeover, but the people making the noise are unaware of their part. They are the true believers and the first to get hurt when freedoms are lost. They are also the most surprised when their heroes become the villains and the ones they labeled as villains turn out not to be the guilty as charged.

 

Just to be fair to our regular readers who have read the step-by-step guide to how leftists use their tools to instigate and install their dictatorial, and by the way, fascist governance and bring elections to an end, we will just give the broad-brushed sketch. The first requirement is an enemy let us say Trump. Then there need be belief that the left lost unfairly. Then protests followed by slowly increasing levels of violence. Then there are the demands for an end to the violence. The violence is blamed on the initial enemy or the next one who wins against the left unfairly, usually soon after the initial enemy and also seemingly against the predictions of the media, surprise, surprise. The more the person perceived to be a right wing extremist, as painted by the media, tries to end the violence, the more it increases and they are blamed for not doing the job because they support many of the ones causing the violence, and any leftists who get caught are simply responding to the right-wing violence. Eventually, the leftists promise to end the violence if only the Constitution is altered to give them the power, as is currently happening in Venezuela. Once they get their unopposable power, then they take care of the violence with greater violence and freedom dies quietly in the background.

 

Venezuela’s upcoming referendum on drafting a new Constitution will be something to watch and expect that it will not be a fair election. Once Maduro wins, Venezuela will no longer be amongst the free nations. All initial indications would indicate that the people are not in favor of a new Constitution, but that may not be the determination of the election, and that will be the great sorrow of it all. The real sorrow is the people never really learn because the way history is taught, memorize dates, memorize insignificant preambles and other trivial items but never, ever tell an interesting story, because that is what real history is, stories. But the stories would stick in the minds and make the young interested in history and then they would learn and with that knowledge they would be able to see things unfolding, and the elites do not want an educated public because that would make them too difficult to govern and fool time and time again. Now that is what government is about in far too many places in our world today, and that is truly sad.
