Imagine you're a typical news consumer reading these three independent stories about Trump's directive for all U.S. ambassadors to leave their posts by January 20th:

  1. New York Times
  2. Washington Post
  3. Reuters
Reading just these [supposedly] "straight" news pieces, what impression would you be left with? Perhaps that President Elect Donald J. Trump is a heartless bastard who doesn't care about families & children? That seems to be a recurring theme.

Now read this and this. Given that you now know that Obama did exactly the same thing, has your impression changed?

Typical hypocrisy of the MSM - if it's who they support, it's good; if they don't support, it's bad.

It ain't just the MSM. Partisan supporters will still justify Obama doing it while castigating Trump for the same thing.
We can see something similar here when it comes to our oil sands. When the previous Liberal govt was in power, those oil sands were the best thing for Canada since Confederation. Chretien even increased the exploration and exploitation of the oil sands despite signing on to the Kyoto Accord. But as soon as the Conservatives got in, those oil sands were a national disgrace, they needed to be shut down, pipelines were evil, etc etc.
Now that the Liberals are back in, suddenly those oil sands will help our economy, help increase our trade, oh and don't forget, we suddenly NEED pipelines now.

The news outlets are not the creators of their own headlines unless you look at Soros (and his fellow elite) as being the head of the companies. The election story can be beat to death and none of it is about the election. It takes up space so other news doesn't get published. For the US being such a global power suddenly you hear nothing about them to any great extent.

With ISIS being blamed for the murders in Jerusalem that gives Israel the opportunity to side with Russia in their war against ISIS and that is going to be pretty hard to spin. Lebanon was taken over in the last election as their PM is a billionaire whose companies are in Saudi so that is what is behind the push to get arms from them as a gift (more or less) and the weapons are defective or old stock so they are of no use in waging a war against anybody but their own citizens.

In my opinion the title of "Media Liars In Chief" is shared by CNN, NBC, HLN, Bloomberg and now ABC. I trust about 10% of what I read and even less about what I hear.

You don't have to guess about the news if you are somewhat informed on the stories they cover and it is quite apparent right them what is a fabrication and what is a fact. It is unlikely most will hear a story and then go and verify that it was true. (if you care about knowing the difference, most don't apparently of fake news would not even be possible)

The Mainstream Is Circling The Wagons: "They're Coming For All Of Us...It's An Orchestrated Attack Against Truth"



Within hours of the election of Donald Trump the mainstream media, their politico counterparts and social media operatives began spreading the narrative that the President was only elected as a result of the dissemination of fake news. The term itself became a rallying cry for everyone from major search engines to massive social media websites who said they would create fact checking teams within their organizations to ensure only legitimate news and information would be listed on their respective platforms. Soon, the leftist media began spreading lists, none of which were backed with any actual evidence, of supposed “fake news” purveyors and Russian propaganda websites. The lists included some of the most highly trafficked non-mainstream websites and aggregators around the world. As these Silicon Valley behemoths and popular news organizations mobilized, so too did mainstream advertising agencies, one of which quickly pulled advertising from the purported king of fake news, conservative leaning news organization Breitbart.com.

The battle was clearly on. And to this day, it continues in earnest. Legitimate news is being buried in feeds and search engine pages, while the effort to directly attack the revenue of alternative media websites continues to expand.

Several weeks ago Mike Adams of NaturalNews.com penned an alert in which he reported that a shadow organization had contacted him with an offer to either help them take down Infowars founder Alex Jones, or be destroyed. Adams, being a long-time proponent of free speech and liberty, took to the internet to expose them instead. Naturally, the skeptics laughed it all off as another conspiracy theory.

Except just days after Natural News posted the warning, Infowars was suddenly dropped by one of the world’s largest online advertising agencies, reportedly costing the network some $3 million in revenue. And within a week of that attack, the largest search engine in the world delisted some 140,000 NaturalNews.com pages from their search results.

While this may seem like no big deal for the average reader today, what these recent actions demonstrate is that a conglomerate of traditional news media, big business and political operatives are actively working to suppress the reporting of information that runs counter to the mainstream agenda.

First they come for the purveyors of truth and information that has remained hidden from the masses for decades. Next they will come for those who publicly discuss their views and and ideas on social media and other forums. And while you may not fall into any of these two categories, make no mistake, as SGT Report warns in the following must-watch report, one day they will come for you, too.
They’ll be coming for all of us… Because this is an orchestrated attack against truth… I cannot imagine living in a time in the United States of America where this is allowed to stand…

Trump Relied on Breitbart to Claim Obama Tapped His Phones

Breitbart, the media outlet previously run by White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, published a story Friday outlining actions supposedly taken by the Obama administration to monitor Trump Tower in New York during the campaign. The story, which claimed the moves were aimed at undermining Trump’s candidacy, referenced commentary on Thursday by radio host Mark Levin that made similar claims.

Neither Breitbart News nor Levin cited independent reporting to back up the assertions.

https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/a...was-wiretapped


If in fact Trump Tower was wiretapped during the 2016 presidential campaign, as President Trump claimed in several tweets Saturday morning, he can do much more than say so on twitter: Presidents have the power to declassify anything at any time, so Trump could immediately make public any government records of such surveillance.

So what does all this mean?

The most likely explanation is that there was never any wiretapping of Trump Tower – or as Trump put it in another tweet, “my phones” — but the FISA court did allow surveillance of the Philadelphia server and the Justice Department ultimately decided there was nothing to it.

Or perhaps the Justice Department decided there was something to it and is still investigating it.

Or perhaps there were FISA court warrants but for surveillance of people around Trump that had nothing to do with the Philadelphia server and the Russian bank.

Or perhaps Trump never read the Breitbart article but instead learned there was significant surveillance of Trump Tower in the way you’d expect a president would, from the massive intelligence apparatus he commands.

Or perhaps Trump has simply gotten all of this wrong.

Whatever the case, Trump has the power to clarify it and everything else about the Russia story right now by declassifying whatever surveillance records exist of contacts between people in his orbit and Russia. If he and his associates did nothing wrong, he has every incentive to do so as soon as possible.

You people don't get it or pretend not to get it just to continue your angst.

Media is just fine. Especially when they do a respectable job. A mostly impartial job as nobody is perfect.

But don't fukk about. Don't try pulling fast ones just to advance your bias, your candidate, your philosophy.

Show as many sides of a story as possible until or if, it gets sorted out.

But don't lecture us. Don't portray yourselves as custodians of a moral and intellectual superior breed of persons.

Don't make sh!t up.

Don't cut-off your guests simply because you don't like where the conversation might go.

Certain and even most of the media (whatever vehicle they choose to peddle the lies, the shine and the troll) are perfectly fine.

It's akin to radical islam. That rotten sharia 'stone-age' crap that very few support.

The snackbars, the anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-other religion scumbags that might as well be glassed into a cultural and social rebooting as far as I'm concerned.

It is right to confront and attack that bullsh!t but soon the tender ones try to lump you into an all-encompassing islam hater camp. Those losers and the finger-pointers can all fukk off and die.


Have a nice day.

Main stream media has been producing fake news since I was a kid. I don't know why so many think this is something new.



1. There was no electricity bill in Libya; electricity was free for all its citizens.

2. There was no interest on loans, banks in Libya were state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at zero percent interest by law.

3. Having a home was considered a human right in Libya.

4. All newlyweds in Libya used to receive 60,000 dinar (£34,470) by the government to buy their first apartment, to help start up the family.

5. Education and medical treatments were free in Libya. Before Gaddafi only 25 percent of Libyans were literate. Today, the figure is 83%.

6. If Libyans wanted to take up a farming career, they would have received farming land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and livestock to kickstart their farms... all for free.

7. If Libyans could not find the education or medical facilities they needed, the government funded them to go abroad. For it was not only paid for, but they got a £1585/month for accommodation and car allowance.

8. If a Libyan bought a car, the government used to subsidise 50 percent of the price.

9. The price of petrol in Libya was £0.09 per litre. NINE PENCE!!!!!

10. Libya had no external debt and its reserves amounted to £103 billion -which are now frozen globally.

11. If a Libyan was unable to get employment after graduation, the state would pay the average salary of the profession, as if he or she was employed, until employment was found.

12. A portion of every Libyan oil sale was credited directly to the bank accounts of all Libyan citizens.

13. A mother who gave birth to a child received £3447.

14. 40 loaves of bread in Libya used to cost £0.10. TEN PENCE!!!

15. 25 percent of Libyans now have a university degree.

16. Gaddafi carried out the world's largest irrigation project, known as the Great Manmade River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country.
— with Dolors Escribano.

Yanky news has been lying about every leader they have demonized and murdered since their inception. Starting with the Spanish/American war, every war was started by a false flag. Every president has initiated a war with someone (except Carter, which is why the right hate him so much). You know that if the Yanks and their media are demonizing someone, they are getting ready to bomb the crap out of them to bring them "democracy".
The MSM is not only essential to spread disinformation but as their main arm of their propaganda machine. Every president has been crucified by the media, not because they are so bad, but because they are scapegoats, channeling the anger and angst of the sheeple so they do not focus on all the crap their shadow government is up to.
