Your News is Being Weaponized for Political Purposes

There were three news stories this week that illustrate one of the most pervasive, and effective, Democratic political strategies. One was “Law professor rips progressives’ false claim that GOP overturned Roe v. Wade.” The second was “Liz Cheney chosen as Jan 6 committee vice-chair.” The third was “FDA officials to resign over White House ‘mess’ of vaccine guidance.”

In a nutshell, the Supreme Court failed to strike down a Texas anti-abortion law on procedural grounds, while leaving the door open to later striking the law down, should someone bring a valid case against it to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court did not say that the Texas law is constitutional. It only said that the specific case brought before the court was not something the Supreme Court could legally look at.

Liz Cheney was chosen as the vice-chair of the Jan 6 committee only to make it look like the Jan 6 committee is legitimate. This is in spite of the fact that the FBI has already determined that while some people did violate the law on trespassing in the Capitol Building, there was no organized plot, and no insurrection. The House, in the meantime, under the direction of Nancy Pelosi, is going to continue investigating the insurrection, in spite of the fact that there wasn’t one.

The top two officials in the FDA are stepping down in protest, as the Biden Administration makes decisions regarding Covid-19 vaccinations that have absolutely nothing to do with science, and everything to do with politics.

Those stories were all on Fox News. Here are some headlines from CNN:

“Biden says he’ll press Congress on infrastructure after wildfires and Ida wreak havoc on the US: ‘The climate crisis is here.’”

“Analysis:  Ida turns NYC into a front line of the climate crisis.”

“John Roberts has lost control of the Supreme Court.”

“Sotomayor calls the Supreme Court vote a ‘breathtaking act of defiance’ of the Constitution.”

“White supremacist praise of the Taliban takeover concerns US officials.”

“Is this *finally* the moment we wake up to the climate crisis?”

What do all of these stories have in common? They are all examples of ‘news’ being weaponized for political purposes.

In the case of Fox News, the stories were calling left-leaning news sources out for shoddy reporting. In the case of CNN, each story pretends to be a news article, or analysis of legitimate news, but all make false assumptions that can easily be disproven, and are completely worthless unless the false assumptions they are based on, are believed to be true.

None of the wildfires raging out West have anything to do with climate change, and nor does Ida, but writing articles linking those two things to climate change is a blatant attempt to fool the American people into taking climate alarmism as gospel truth. There is an implied promise that if we stop burning fossil fuels and live in caves, suddenly there will be no more wildfires, and no hurricanes (or at least that there will be fewer, and that they will be less extreme). There is not a shred of scientific research to support that belief. The truth is that we do not have more severe weather than we had in the past.

John Roberts never had control over the Supreme Court. Each member has an equal say in every court decision, and that has always been true. Note, however, that saying ‘John Roberts has lost control of the Supreme Court’ creates an image of a court running out of control. And we are told this over a case that was thrown out for procedural reasons. This is a blatant attempt to turn the American people against a conservative-leaning court, in the hopes of getting us to push to have the court packed.

And last, but not least, the notion that America has a problem with white supremacy is a myth, and the notion that large numbers of Americans want anything to do with the Taliban, other than perhaps to kill the Taliban off, is absurd.

And yet, all of these are mainstream news stories from the current news cycle. There were more yesterday, and there will be more tomorrow – articles pretending to be news, but that is completely removed from reality. These articles are nothing more than propaganda, and are as unashamedly biased as was anything ever put out by Joseph Goebbels.

Another interesting thing I noticed in looking at the news today was that on CNN, there was absolutely nothing going on related to Afghanistan, and on Fox, there was nary a mention of Hurricane Ida. It is not just the coverage of the news that is hopelessly slanted, but also what news is covered.

Today’s left and right live in completely separate universes, with exposure to completely different sets of information – all of it biased. The current state of American ‘news’ would be funny were it not such a serious problem.

But the fact is that we are blinded by the corporate greed of media houses who, in order to avoid being cut off from access to the Chinese media market, only tell us what the Chinese Communist Party allows us to hear, and that is further censored by their own political bias.

Even where valid, legitimate news is created, such as on America Out Loud, sharing it on social media can be problematic, with outright bans, as well as ‘shadow bans’ where people can post content, but algorithms are designed to limit the spread of their posts.

It is time for the American public to realize that we have no news, and are completely blind in terms of what is actually going on in the world around us.

And it is time for us to realize that this has been true for a very long time.

American Democracy, The End of An Era

American Democracy, The End of An Era

Communism in America in 2022, at least in its early stage, is following the communist rule-book of social/political upheaval and violence. Communism is gaining control of the American government, the judicial system, and other institutions through leaps and bounds. Yet, it is achieving this through subterfuge. Let us not be deceived by…

The Elimination of Gun Owners is the Goal of Red Flag Laws

The Elimination of Gun Owners is the Goal of Red Flag Laws

Red Flag Laws are a calculated start of a slippery slope to control our young people, eliminate the 2nd amendment and disable Americans from the right to defend themselves. Every totalitarian society started by eliminating the right and/or opportunity for the populace to self-defend. So which is it? Well-intentioned ignorance? Or an insidious plot to change and control our American way of life?

Dr. Peter McCullough Testifies in Texas…”Pandemic Lessons Learned”

Even a data-model expert from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center did not consider early treatment in models to predict hospitalization. This was a stunning revelation as modern estimates have early treatment resulting in a 95% reduction in the risk of hospitalization and death. This means any COVID-19 data model is useless unless it considers…

Biden Must Stop Sharing Our Nation’s Intelligence with the World

Biden Must Stop Sharing Our Nation’s Intelligence with the World

Damaging articles on U.S. information-sharing with Ukraine told Russia what we were sharing with Kyiv. While clearly, the administration did not want to escalate the war, sharing information that we planned to contribute over a dozen Polish fighter planes was extremely helpful to Russian strategists. It is a real mystery how this administration could have been so wrong on…

The American Communist Party Must Be Defeated

The American Communist Party Must Be Defeated

Once the world’s preeminent fighting force, our Armed Forces are now seemingly more concerned with teaching members to use the correct pronouns and promoting ‘letters of the alphabet’ to command positions than in protecting America and winning wars. Now we find ourselves under attack from outside our country, as well as from within…

Wind Energy or Blowing Smoke Up Our Arses!

Wind Energy or Blowing Smoke Up Our Arses!

Among the most significant weaknesses of the horizon blotting Chinese windmills from hell are those 120 to 200-foot-long blades and what to do with them when they wear out, break, get dented, or get a bullet hole in them? Every time a blade chops up an eagle or other large bird (what’s the avian death count now, 500,000 birds annually) gets even slightly dented, it needs to…

Recognize the Real Red Flags on the Rights of all Americans

Many well-intentioned psychologists and medical doctors suggest that mental illness is a serious problem that can lead to violent acts, particularly depression. Dr. Joseph Mercola, a popular osteopathic physician calls antidepressants the elephant in the room. He rightly states that antidepressants can cause suicidal and homicidal thoughts, agitation, impulsivity, and a…

The Marxist Revolution in California Threatens Its Very Existence

The state is tumbling over three critical issues. First, the human-caused climate change fraud promotes the end of life as we know it if we continue to burn fossil fuels and emit life-giving carbon dioxide, the only reason mankind can inhabit Earth. Second, the Critical Race Theory that is turning citizen against citizen as either oppressed or oppressors, and third is the covid China virus that has disrupted all normal life and…

The Warning Signs Make Monkeypox the New SARS-CoV-2

The Warning Signs Make Monkeypox the New SARS-CoV-2

In November 2021, a report was issued by the Nuclear Threat Initiative, which, along with the Munich Security Conference, held a tabletop exercise to consider responses to a fictional monkeypox outbreak that was posited to occur in May 2022. Stretching credulity, fiction has now been replaced by fact as the world experiences a genuine explosion of the monkeypox disease starting on the exact assigned date. Could this exact prediction be one more big coincidence?

Overturning Roe v. Wade Does Not End Abortion; It Returns the Authority to the States

Overturning Roe v. Wade Does Not End Abortion; It Returns the Authority to the States

What can the American people conclude, both from the reactions to the leak of the draft and the anticipated reactions to this opinion? First, we should recognize that there are people in our country for whom the ends justify the means. Some will use lies, intimidation, and violence to get their way. This should be obvious from the hysterical disinformation…

The Buck Stops With Putin, Big Oil, White Supremacists, Trump & Teachers Unions

Immediately upon taking office, Biden revoked a permit essential for the Keystone XL pipeline to deliver oil from Canada, launched an effort to overturn an oil drilling program in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska, and empowered the Department of Interior regulatory efforts to delay drilling permits. Fast forward now to June of this year, and Biden is blaming Big Oil…

Realpolitik: Biden & Muhammad bin Salman

Realpolitik: Biden & Muhammad bin Salman

MBS is telling Biden that when he comes groveling to Saudi Arabia, this ‘pariah’ state is the foremost economic and political power in the Gulf that cannot be either threatened, intimidated, or insulted by the USA. That Biden is dealing with an extremely vital state to America’s interests. To assist Biden’s survival, MBS will most definitely demand that there will be Quid pro Quo such as…
