Mainstream Media Lies: 23 Things That Are Not What They Seem To Be On Television

Most Americans believe the lie that the mainstream media is “fair and balanced” and is looking out for the interests of average Americans.  Well, that simply is not true.  Those in the mainstream media serve those that are providing them with paychecks.  The reality is that just 6 gigantic corporations collectively own most of the major mainstream media outlets in this country.  Reporters are simply not going to be allowed to report stories that are severely damaging to those corporations or to the owners of those corporations.  In addition, reporters are simply not going to be allowed to report stories that are severely damaging to those that spend millions of dollars on advertising (such as pharmaceutical companies) on those mainstream media outlets.  At this point, our “news” is absolutely packed with propaganda.  Way too often, things are not what they seem to be on television.  The mainstream media lies, lies and then lies some more.  They give us the version of “reality” that their owners want us to have.

The following are 23 things that are not what they seem to be on television….

The Lie: Mitt Romney won Iowa.

The Truth: Mitt Romney may not have won Iowa.  The following report of a documented vote discrepancy comes from KCCI….

Edward True, 28, of Moulton, said he helped count the votes and jotted the results down on a piece of paper to post to his Facebook page. He said when he checked to make sure the Republican Party of Iowa got the count right, he said he was shocked to find they hadn’t.

“When Mitt Romney won Iowa by eight votes and I’ve got a 20-vote discrepancy here, that right there says Rick Santorum won Iowa,” True said. “Not Mitt Romney.”

True said at his 53-person caucus at the Garrett Memorial Library, Romney received two votes. According to the Iowa Republican Party’s website, True’s precinct cast 22 votes for Romney.

So how many other “vote discrepancies” were there in Iowa?  Was this just a “coincidence” or did someone do this on purpose?

The Lie: Barack Obama will be much different from George W. Bush and will actually protect our civil liberties.

The Truth: Under Barack Obama we have lost even more of our civil liberties than we did under George W. Bush.  Barack Obama recently signed a new law that gives the U.S. military the power to arrest U.S. citizens on American soil, detain them indefinitely and ship them off to Guantanamo Bay for endless “interrogation” sessions.

The Lie: SOPA is all about cracking down on international sellers of counterfeit goods.

The Truth: SOPA is all about censoring the Internet and cracking down on websites that the federal government does not like.

The Lie: The U.S. unemployment rate is now at 8.5% and will continue to fall as the U.S. economy recovers.

The Truth: If the number of Americans considered to be “looking for work” was the same today as it was back in 2007, the “official” unemployment rate put out by the U.S. government would about 11 percent, and the U.S. middle class continues to be systematically destroyed right in front of our eyes.

The Lie: The debt crisis in Europe has been stabilized and the euro is going to be just fine.

The Truth: The debt crisis in Europe continues to get worse and the euro is dropping like a rock.

The Lie: The U.S. stock market is in great shape and is poised to soar to new heights in 2012.

The Truth: Investors are pulling money out of stocks at an alarming rate.  In fact, as CNBC recently noted, investors have pulled more money out of mutual funds than they have put into mutual funds for 9 weeks in a row.  A lot of people out there expect that something really bad is going to happen very soon….

Investors yanked money out of U.S. equity mutual funds for a ninth-consecutive week despite a bullish 2012 outlook from Wall Street and a December rally that’s carried over into the New Year.

The Lie: There are no plans to replace the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency.

The Truth: Top financial authorities all over the world have been developing plans for a new global currency for a long time.  The following comes from a CNN article….

The International Monetary Fund issued a report Thursday on a possible replacement for the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

The IMF said Special Drawing Rights, or SDRs, could help stabilize the global financial system.

The Lie: There is not a municipal bond crisis in America.

The Truth: There is a growing municipal bond crisis in America.  Over the last several months a whole host of municipal bonds have been downgraded.  Just today, Moody’s downgraded Illinois government debt from A2 to A.

The Lie: Chicago is a safe place to live.

The Truth: 14 people were shot across the Chicago area on Thursday alone.

The Lie: Federal employees are not overpaid.

The Truth: The federal government is advertising for an “invitations coordinator” that will make between $53,500 and $102,900 per year.

The Lie: The old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs are bad for the environment and it is a good thing that the federal government is requiring that they be phased out.

The Truth: The new CFL light bulbs are filled with mercury, they are an environmental nightmare and they are incredibly toxic and dangerous if they are broken.

The Lie: The U.S. education system is producing a huge crop of really sharp students who are prepared to be the leaders of tomorrow.

The Truth: The U.S. education system is a complete and total joke.  It is producing millions of students that are not prepared to face the real world at all.  The following is a short excerpt from a recent article by Mac Slavo that many of you will find illuminating….

————————————————-

Economics Professor Jack Chambless of Valencia College in Florida had his sophomore students write a short essay on what the American dream means to them and what, specifically, they wanted the federal government to do to help them achieve that dream.

The results demonstrate the sheer magnitude of the idiocy of a public education system dead set on indoctrination rather than education:

I took the essays from three classes – about 180 students…

About 10% of the students said they wanted the government to leave them alone and not tax them too much and let them regulate their own lives.

But over 80% of the students said that the American dream to them meant a job, a house, and plenty of money for retirement and vacations and things like this. When it came to the part about the federal government, eight out of ten students said they wanted free health care, they wanted the government to pay for their tuition, they wanted the government to pay for the down payment on their house, they expected the government to, quote, “give them a job.” Many of them said they wanted the government to tax wealthier individuals so that they would have an opportunity to have a better life.

The following is an excerpt from one of the non-sensical essays written by a student of Professor Chambless:

“As human beings, we are not really responsible for our own acts, and so we need government to control those who don’t care about others.”

————————————————-

You can read the rest of that article right here.

The Lie: Specific social and political agendas are not promoted in U.S. public schools.

The Truth: According to CNSNews.com, a new California law makes it mandatory for all public school children to be taught the “role and contributions” that “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans” have played in the “development of California and the United States of America.”

The Lie: We have to send our troops overseas to fight the terrorists “over there” or else they will come and fight us over here.

The Truth: Dozens of jihadist training camps are operating inside the United States right now and the federal government could not care less.  The following is from a recent WorldNetDaily article about a jihadist organization that is operating 35 training camps on U.S. soil right now….

Jamaat ul-Fuqra, known in the U.S. as “Muslims of America,” has purchased or leased hundreds of acres of property – from New York to California – in which the leader, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, boasts of conducting “the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare.”

In a recruitment video captured from Gilani’s “Soldiers of Allah,” he states in English: “We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots are America.”

But apparently Islamic terror is only a “problem” when the federal government wants to use it to justify invading another country.

In fact, there have been several instances where the U.S. government has actually allied with al-Qaeda in order to overthrow governments.  The latest example of this was in Libya.

The Lie: Our politicians know exactly what they are doing and they have a plan for getting U.S. debt under control.

The Truth: When Ronald Reagan took office, the U.S. national debt was less than 1 trillion dollars.  Today, the U.S. national debt is over 15.2 trillion dollars.  In spite of all this, the American people keep sending the same big spenders back to Washington D.C. over and over and over.

The Lie: The Obama administration is enforcing our immigration laws.

The Truth: The Obama administration has instituted “backdoor amnesty” for illegal immigrants and even plans to provide them with work permits.

The Lie: The number of earthquakes is not increasing.

The Truth: The number of earthquakes is increasing dramatically.  As the “Ring of Fire” continues to wake up the next few years could be very, very interesting.

The Lie: The nuclear crisis at Fukushima is under control and things are getting back to normal.

The Truth: Large areas around Fukushima will be uninhabitable for the indefinite future.  Back in April, I published an article entitled “Much Of Northern Japan Uninhabitable Due To Nuclear Radiation?“  At the time, almost everyone in the mainstream media was insisting that Fukushima was nothing like Chernobyl and that those that lived near Fukushima would be able to return to their homes fairly soon.

Well, it turns out that those of us that feared the worst were right after all.  Just consider the following quote from the New York Times….

Broad areas around the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant could soon be declared uninhabitable, perhaps for decades, after a government survey found radioactive contamination that far exceeded safe levels, several major media outlets said Monday.

The Lie: Fluoride is good for our teeth and we should put huge amounts of it into our drinking water.

The Truth: Fluoride is a very toxic sedative and can be very harmful to the teeth.  Incredibly, even the federal government is finally admitting that high levels of fluoride in our drinking water can be harmful.  In fact, the feds have reduced the “recommended amount” of fluoride in our drinking water for the first time in 50 years.

We probably won’t see them ban fluoride any time soon, but for them to even acknowledge a problem with fluoride is a major step.  In a recent article on CNN, it was reported that the federal government is now saying that high levels of fluoride in the water have now officially been linked with fluorosis….

The Department of Health and Human Services and Environmental Protection Agency are proposing the change because of an increase in fluorosis — a condition that causes spotting and streaking on children’s teeth.

The Lie: Using cell phones is perfectly safe and they do not cause cancer.

The Truth: Using cell phones can definitely increase your risk for cancer.  Some very startling scientific studies have come out recently that are hard to ignore.

The following is an excerpt from a recent CNN article about one of these studies….

At the highest exposure levels — using a mobile phone half an hour a day over a 10-year period — the study found a 40 percent increased risk of glioma brain tumors.

The Lie: The federal government works very hard to keep dangerous prescription drugs from ever entering the marketplace.

The Truth: America’s addiction to prescription drugs is getting a lot of people put into the ground.  Adverse reactions to prescription drugs kill a huge number of Americans every year.  A recent Vanity Fair article entitled “Deadly Medicine” began with the following statement….

Prescription drugs kill some 200,000 Americans every year. Will that number go up, now that most clinical trials are conducted overseas—on sick Russians, homeless Poles, and slum-dwelling Chinese—in places where regulation is virtually nonexistent, the F.D.A. doesn’t reach, and “mistakes” can end up in pauper’s graves?

The Lie: Members of Congress work really hard to fix the problems that this country is facing.

The Truth: Members of Congress work an average of about two and a half days per week.

The Lie: The United States has the best health care system in the world.

The Truth: The United States spends far more on health care than anyone else in the world, but we rank 50th in life expectancy, 47 countries have a lower infant mortality rate than we do and the federal government is chasing millions of good doctors out of the medical profession.

So do any of you have any lies to add to this list?

    The MSN are lying (I’m shocked and appalled and Chelsea was so cute on NBS). Lets face it allot of people are going to have to do thier own thinking, part of that is finding other sources of information other than ABC, NBS, MSNBS the Commie News Network, The New York Slime and others. Some of those sources you may not agree with but you will find insights and nuggets of info that will help you see things and not bald face lie to you. People are going to need to think critically look for sources of information and not sources of agreement. Everybody has an ax to grind once you know where the source is coming from then you can filter out the BS.

    All that republican deregulation what do you expect? I have been saying like forever that republicans and conservatives are destroying everything good about this country as they worship the rich. What a better way for the rich to get richer than to have the media owned by 6 companies.

      OBAMA SUPPORTERS GET DETAINED INDEFINITELY FIRST:

      I know you are a hardcore lefty, in the tradition of the Green Arrow, but don’t be a total sucker by voting for Obama again in 2012 and hoping that somehow the inner democrat in him will finally escape his rightwing prison and reign happiness and joy throughout the land.

    Ever notice that the media is pushing a political agenda? Certain minor events are reported endless while some major events are ignored. It all depends on the political agenda of the news outlet. It is no secret that the agenda is usually a left-wing one.

    This agenda is especially pronounced when it comes to crime. The media does not like to report black crime. Even when an at large suspect posed an immediate danger to the public, the media would rather ignore it.
    The LA Times issued an official online statement admitting that it was standard practice in the newspaper industry to censor of the race of minority crime perpetrators.

    All of these “media elites” place political correctness far above public safety.

    I’ve got one more for you. Most people believe Catholicism is Christian. Alas it is not.

    See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLp9xigjajM

    The Vatican is truly Satan’s masterpiece. Remember he is a liar and the father of it. He’s the prince of the power of the air (waves). More TV , radio anyone? What do you expect? Black is becoming white and white is becoming black now. The nation is being transformed into a luciferian society and the youth are being brainwashed much the same as the Catholic Nazis brainwashed the youth of Germany. Repent and believe in the only Truth, the only Way and the only Life. Jesus Christ.

    • T

      I don’t know everything about Catholicism and probably don’t need to. But when you get to heaven there will be many Catholics, many Baptists, a lot of Presbyterians and on and on.

    Most American “news” networks and programs are so biased and sensationalistic, it’s incredible. You are not being delivered news, you are being force-fed entertainment. Watching and reading American media, you will find little to nothing about the current Falkland Islands dispute between Argentina and England. Or that Iran actually blocked the Strait of Hormuz for a few hours last week. That’s an open threat to our supply of oil! That is extremely important news. But you WILL find that Aretha Franklin is getting married for the third time, and that Casey Anthony just got piercings.

    The “news” shows on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, etc. are pretty much just upscale versions of TMZ. You have to go to foreign and alternative websites to find real, honest, hard news. Like the BBC (although even they are becoming more “Americanized”), RT (Russia Today), the Sydney Morning Herald in Australia, or the Guardian in Manchester, England (a good source for American political news, ironically!)

    If you know foreign languages, “Der Speiegel” (Berlin – German) isn’t bad. Same with “Le Monde” (Paris – French) and “La Nacion” (Argentina – Spanish). If you don’t know any foreign languages, there is always Google Translator to help you. You’d be surprised to read what other countries (and the commenters who post comments on those sites) think of the U.S. It’s not always complimentary.

    And I’ve found absolutely nothing about the Octomom on any of those sites. Maybe that’s the best news of all.

      you got that right. American “news” is garbage.

    Some things I would like to see on U.S. network TV news:

    An update on the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster.
    An update on Haiti, 2 years after the major quake.
    How much corn is being grown for ethanol, as opposed to human consumption.
    The current situation in Yemen. Big news last year, apparently not so anymore.
    More information about the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya.
    How is New Zealand doing a year after the major quake there?
    Anything – anything at all – about Cameroon, Angola and Myanmar.

    What you’re actually getting: (this is totally made up, btw)

    The Lie: Banks “loan” you money to buy a house (car, cheeseburger, etc).

    The Truth: They create the money out of thin air through Fractional Reserve Banking. THEN, they charge you interest for the use of this money that they magically created… THEN, when you can’t pay they take back the house (or car) and since they created the money out of NOTHING… they haven’t lost a thing.

    The UGLY TRUTH: Even with this magical money tree at their disposal, they get greedy, cause a crisis and get bailed out by the gov’t (us).

    If people really understood this: There would be a REVOLUTION tomorrow.

  • Texar

    THE BIGGEST LIE IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY: “Separation of church and state” is in the Constitution and protects the citizens from being exposed to religion in the public square.

    The TRUTH: It is NOT in the Constitution and was correctly interpreted for the first 150 years of this country to do exactly the OPPOSITE of what it does today.

    The ONLY thing that it means: The State CANNOT make us all be Baptists or Buddists or Scientologists.

    As for the new Defense of Department bill, President Obama added a signing statement. In the signing statement, the president explained his rationale for accepting the bill, and that his administration wouldn’t enforce the indefinite detention for American citizens without a trial.

    Well the people in power seem to have us right where they want us….dumbed down and not paying attention… A whole new generation of Gary2s to vote in politicians who raise taxes on the people that actually work to pay for those who don’t….

        So, force the rich to move their money, investments, factories, and jobs to business friendly countries.

        • Gary2

          and then tax the ************ out of what they try to import!

          • Walter

            Either you’re trying (and failing) to be funny or you seriously don’t understand the phrase “business friendly”.
            America is a consumer nation, for the moment, but at this rate we will price ourselves out of the game completely, as producers or consumers. The next few years are critical. Given the current hostility toward business in the US I’d suggest you brush up on your Mandarin. Dong bu dong?

  • William

    Not having had cable/satellite TV since 1992, I watch little TV now……..mostly PBS, although it is biased and has some “spin”, just not as much as the Fake News. I wonder if Americans really know how badly the news is spun, from what is presented as “news”, and how it is presented. The major network and print outlets are controlled by the very same Kahal cabal. That is how Americans were suckered into supporting the attack on Iraq, which had no WMD, and was not, unlike Israel, involved in the 911 attacks. Now, the drumbeat is for another unnecessary war of choice; this time against Iran. Never mind that America is bankrupt and dying quickly.

    Lie: We need meat protein to have a healthy, balanced diet.

    Truth: There is enough protein in a russet potato for a half day’s daily protein needs.

    Truth: Casien, meat/dairy protein, causes cancers. Cancers can sometimes be cured by eleminating 100% of casien from your diet.

    Truth: Pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know that you can cure heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancers and a host of illnesses by adopting a plant-based, wholes foods diet.

    Michael,

    I cant remember if it was on this site, or the Collapse site when that commenter said you should do a story on contaminated foods? Natural News. com is a wonderful website filled with tons of stories about GMO crops in our food supply, the evils of Monsanto, and of course fluoride poisoning our water supplies. Check it out. Told ya about Fukushima. I dont know if other readers are aware of this but dead seals are washing up on the coast of Alaska missing fur and open sores. At first they thought it was some sort of virus, but it IS radiation poisoning!!! You did that article about Fukushima tainting our raw milk on the west coast, and there has been a higher than normal infant mortality rate. Fukushima is already producing mutant vegetables, such as carrots and turnips. On Natural News they have pictures of a Japanese man holding a carrot called rock, paper, sissors. And that what it looks like. Very disturbing. Fukushima is not through by a damn sight, and just wait until that trash comes washing ashore on the west coast. Fun, fun times ahead.

  • Hangdog

    Lie: Gun control laws keep us safe:

    Truth: The 31 states that have “shall issue” laws allowing private citizens to carry concealed weapons have, on average, a 24 percent lower violent crime rate, a 19 percent lower murder rate and a 39 percent lower robbery rate than states that forbid concealed weapons. In fact, the nine states with the lowest violent crime rates are all right-to-carry states.

  • nathan

    all I have to say is that the normal people are stronger then the elite. we just need to wake up and fight because we will win. I think it is about time for the first little part of the declaration of independence to take place even though it most likely will not. I also do not watch tv. I read history and read the real news online. great list by the way.

  • Psyfy

    You can’t post the ‘Lie’ about the propaganda of media networks and an image of CNN. Then later on quote a CNN article to support your stance on the Global Currency. go back and take a look.

    It just screws your credibility.

    I’m a pretty liberal Dem. But you know, I hate MSNBC as much as I hate Fox and Limbaugh! Just gimme the truth…I don’t give a rats ass for anyones political slant/agenda. Larry Kudlow and all the cheerleaders for that overbought casino called wallstreet should be imprisoned. They know damn well what is going on…inside they are peeing their pants…all the while sucking people into a losing game. Truth be told, those eggheads cashed out long ago.

    “Many of them said they wanted the government to tax wealthier individuals so that they would have an opportunity to have a better life”.

    These kids are so smart! We need to tax the rich and spread the wealth. Anyone who can think should know this. I am glad to see the younger generation being so knowledgeable. I told you my side WILL win.

      Oh yeah almost forgot-it is very gratifying that so many young college students are involved in ousting republicans. It is very easy to “recruit” these college age students to be against conservatism. It is a really wonderful feeling registering them to vote and getting them to the polls. I personally have done this many times. I can 99% promise they are not voting repube.

      It is so easy to show them how conservatives are ruining their future because it is true.

        Maybe they can vote for the 80% of Democrats that voted to ship their job and therefore opportunity to China after pledging not to do so when the 83% of Republicans supported it. After the election they all lined up and did what their Corporate Masters told them to do.

        You have to see that neither party is an option as they are presently staffed.

        • Gary2

          I agree, however, as I am working to change the system (long term goal) I am also working within the system. (short term goal)

          By your own numbers the dems are better (83/vs. 80%)

          You really know whats cool-all these right wingers votes will be wiped out by me taking a few poor people to the polls to legitimately register and vote! All their blustering nonsense means nothing!

    Many of them said they wanted the government to tax wealthier individuals so that they would have an opportunity to have a better life.

    Michael-this is a problem why?

    This is a good thing. We will be taking this country to the left thank you. All the conservatives can do it tool around in their motorized wheel chairs with the confederate flag sticker on the back. The high light of their day is soaking their dentures as most on the right do not have teeth. Go to any tea bag protest to see I am correct.

  • gary2

    Hey Michael-what about topical fluoride that one would apply to their teeth as opposed to ingesting?

    • Michael

      That is not good for you or for your teeth either.

      I would try an all-natural toothpaste with xylitol.

      Gary2 – just got done reading some of your posts about dr.’s and Obamacare. I thought you would be against Obamacare since you are obviously an intelligent medical dr. Even you have to agree that medical dr.’s are smart people…then why do most of them vote Republican?

      • Gary2

        Cognitive dissidence. Also because repubes are the party of the rich and doctors are for the most part in the top 10% IE Rich.

        As an aside-having worked in health care for 12+ years 1994-2006 I can say for sure that doctors may be smart in their filed but many of them are dummer than a sack of dirt in things other than their field.

        You would be surprised at how many do not even flush the toilet! (I was in the environmental services)

    Here’s something funny I’ve been notching of late; whenever I do a google (boo! hiss!) search of something “offbeat” let’s say “rule by experts”, all I get is unrelated junk results. ***************, unless my google-fu is weak, which I can’t imagine as I’ve using search engines since ’99, this is pretty bad.

    I think the web is being flooded with junk data, tags, search results etc. to push relevant info out. Makes since, distract the sheep with pop-culture, junk news, human interest pieces, trending buzzwords, celebrities in search engines. Who’s going to go to page 150 to find info on “monsanto gmo”?

    Same thing that already happened in the lamestream media is going on in cyberspace, what do you think?

    “Energizer Bunny Arrested; Charged with Battery”

    That has got to be one of the best faux headlines ever!

  • Godozo

    How about this:

    The people ARE getting what they want with their news, and thus are WILLINGLY being lied to. They’re hearing what they WANT to hear.

    How else do you explain FOX news, TMZ, the fact that the MS-n-M has become more reactive than proactive, and the existence of FARK? It’s because people WANT to be lied to.

    A more honest version of this is NPR (the stations get federal funding, but the shows themselves get the majority of their funding by the listeners) and the Christian Media. Both groups are funded by their listeners so they’re not just asking for a certain bias, they’re putting their money where their preferred mouths are.

  • Mr. Juba

    Acutally, NPR gets about the same amount from government/corporate/foundation money as listener(http://www.npr.org/about/aboutnpr/publicradiofinances.html), so NPR itself is also “tainted” to some degree.

    Michael,

    Another set of BIG LIES:

    Lies: Iraq has weapons of mass destruction, ties to Al Qaeda, the asylum state soldiers will be greeted as “liberators” and Iraqi oil revenues will pay for the war.

    Truth: A. No WMDs have ever been found in Iraq because they never existed, B. there were no ties between Saddam’s government and Al Qaeda, and any Al Qaeda that may be there now are only there because they followed the Asylum State soldiers into Iraq, C. Asylum State soldiers were greeted with IEDs and suicide bombings rather than flowers and rice, (so much for being greeted as liberators vice occupiers) D. and we all know that Iraqi oil revenues have not paid for one red cent for the war on Iraq, as evidenced by Michele Bachmann’s insistent cries and whines to be “reimbursed” by the Iraqi puppet government for asylum state expenditures. So much for the Karl Rove and Paulie Wolfowitz rightwing republican war party theory of “making their own reality”……………..

    Lie: The taxpayers have been fully repaid for the TARP bank bailout.

    Truth: Not only has TARP not been fully repaid, Helicopter Ben Bernanke and Timmy Geithner have showered over 27 TRILLION DOLLARS to domestic and foreign banks. But hey, what is 700 BILLION compared to that number?

  • mondobeyondo

    The PBS News Hour (on PBS, obviously) is also a good choice. Kind of reminds me of what news programs used to be like on the big three networks.

    PBS’s programming, generally speaking, tends to be higher quality than the major networks It’s more educational and “cultured”. Perhaps it’s that way because much of PBS’s funding comes from its viewers and independent philantrophists, and not from Lunestra, Viagra, Cialis or Raisin Bran.

    “…According to CNSNews.com, a new California law makes it mandatory for all public school children to be taught the “role and contributions” that “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans” have played in the “development of California and the United States of America.”"

    Oh the horror!!! God forbid that the contributions of anyone OTHER than white male heterosexuals be taught.

  • Goliath

    You forgot about the BIG LIE. That we were attacked by Arabs on 9/11. This is TOTAL LIE. The filthy backstabbing Israelis attacked us 9/11 to get the US to fight it’s enemies in the middle-east. And it worked, with he help of the traitorous, Israeli controlled US media.

  • Goliath

    Oh yeah right, PBS is good choice. Have your news presented by the La Kosher Nostra. Look at the names of the people being interviewed. These are Israel supporters. These are the same people who pulled off 9/11. Lying to you about Iraq WMD, 9/11, bailouts, Ron Paul. You name it, these snakes lie about it.

    We as Americans need to understand what the difference is between the truth and the Worlds Military Industrial War Complex Regime’s Propaganda! That same Military industrial War Complex Regime that President Eisenhower warned us about on January 17, 1961 AD to date almost 51 year ago. As Americans we are still ignoring this warning, So Now They Are “The Powers That Be” Either you believe this or not, What you see in most of the political spectrum is all just an illusion created by “TPTB” to keep the people of the world entertained with the puppet shows just enough to distract you so “TPTB” can work on the agenda of the One World Government or the New World Order. And They Will Not Stop Until We Are All Enslaved! With the exception of a few palliations that openly try to warn us, when they mention this very old cliché “The Devil Is In The Details”, Congressman Dr. Ron Paul is the only candidate left that will Not perpetuate their evil agenda, by returning back to the Foundation of this Great Nation.

    What people have to do is detox. Folks have been fed so many lies they don’t know what truth is.

    Turn off the TV and start reading the classics, including the Bible (prayerfully). Despite what the elite say, people of hundreds and thousands of years ago were not centuries dumber, and in fact had a good sense of logic and reason. Starting reading things like Gulag Archipelago, “1984″, and even St. Augustine’s “The City of God.” Read some of the Church Fathers, whose writings are on the internet and freely available.
    Here are some short writings from the earliest Church Fathers from up to the era of the Council of Nicaea, which make for a good introduction to Christianity and what Christians always believed: http://www.churchyear.net/lentfathers.html

    There are many other classics, and some of them are even available online for free. They are some of the best resources anyone has to wake up.

    Hound

    The war on terror was invented by the Feds. The purpose is to demand more money and power from people. So when the intelligence and Pentagon are there, the terror will be there too. If there is none, they create one.

    Human have hound in their house to protect their family against the wolf. As the hound getting more power, they don’t want to be guards any more. They want to be master. So the hound trained some wolf they captured. Let these agent wolf to attack and kill human. Human is frightened. They give hound whatever they demanded -money, power ….. Now hound become master. When they need something, they let the agent wolf have an attack on human, then said, this is a long war, to protect your lives, I need warrantless surveillance, more budget fund, torture prison…. . The hound repeated its demand, “This enemy has struck us, and they will strike again, and we’ll give our folks the tools necessary to protect the country,” if you don’t then the hound “can not protect ourselves”.

    That’s why we saw after 10 years, occasionally a wolf or two were captured. But hundreds of thousands of innocent people died. There is an endless war to control people. A constant blackmail for more power.

  • Gerry lang

    If our founding fathers had knowing of corporations as they exist now; they would have treated them as warily as they treated church.

    Our constitution would have demanded the separation of church and or corporation from state.

    We made a most grievous mistake in allowing them (corporations) person hood. They are the ultimate predator.

    They can legally and they do commit murder, often with depraved indifference.

    Remember the courts have ruled that their only obligation is that they make a buck for the majority stock holders. If other persons die so they can make it; why that is just good business.

    If flesh and blood people get crush in their machinations, well that is what they got lawyers for.

    We like to think that we are a nation of law, yet in truth, we are a nation of of lawyers.

    When we went, from the intent of law, to the letter of law, we lost our moral and ethical center. Is it any wonder that the American dream is on life support?

    Americans are usually very rude. You can’t trust Americans – that is the general feeling in the world. They used to look down on places like Thailand and Bali for the sex trade – but that is what America has become. It whores out its children for a fast dollar on the Internet porn sites. Nobody has respect for a whore and America is now a serious whore.

    I could not agree with you more. The reason why things have gotten to this point is that, we, the American people, have allowed to get to this point.

    I do not watch television anymore. I might watch a football game or baseball game that is about it. Television has been dumbed down so much in the last twenty years there is nothing I can find that will entertain me. When I turn on the TV, I am so appalled at what is on I cut it off and go to my room and read a good book.

    a few about michael jackson
    1 he made himself white because he didnt want to be black. The truth is he had vitiligo
    2 he paid off the chandlers in 1993 to avoid prison the truth: He didnt pay them his insurance company did. He was never charged with anything as the proscution didn’t have enough evidence to start a trial

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-TheVet/100002806002183 Mike TheVet

      Do you think Jackson was killed by…let’s just say a group? Not trying to steer you into “conspiracy theory,” but I believed the media when they said he was a molester. I’m not so sure about the media says these days…

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Cengiz-Temi/528918383 Cengiz Temi

        don’t no if it was a group but it is possible. I did hear that the security camera’s in his house were turned off on the day he died. As for the molestation more media bs. There’s 2 books you can read if you find them. One is called redemption by geraldine hudges its about the allegations in 1993. The other is called michael jackson conspiracy by aphrodite jones. It’s about the trial and based on court documents and evidence. Alot of it was not shown on the news
        in a non michael jackson related thing, there was 2 reporters who were fired from fox news because they wouldn’t go on and lie to the viewers. They took fox to court and were awarded $450,000 in composition. Fox appealed it and the court sided with them. They also said fox and other news stations were free to lie and didn’t have to report the truth. That’s y i don’t believe much of what i hear

        • Mike TheVet

          I heard all about the rBST story in the 90′s. Fox got their ass handed to them in court, yet, an Appeals judge deems the news “entertainment, therefore not liable as the truth.”

    “The Lie: The old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs
    are bad for the environment and it is a good thing that the federal
    government is requiring that they be phased out.

    The Truth: The new CFL light bulbs are filled with mercury, they are an environmental nightmare and they are incredibly toxic and dangerous if they are broken.”

    -This ignores the fact that burning coal is still the most popular way to create the electricity used in either, and burning coal releases….(wait for it)…. ***mercury*** into the environment. So the ‘Truth’ is somewhere in there. Incandescent bulbs *are* bad for the environment, and so are CFL’s. Make sure to dispose of your CFL bulbs properly, or just buy LED.
