“The West is headed to dictatorship. It’s already happening. The merger of state and corporate power is by definition called fascism. I just mentioned the Defense Authorization Act. Before you had that you had the abrogation of the Constitution under Bush, with the Patriot Act, which Obama reinstated and made even tougher by signing this bill. When I say the merger of state and corporate powers, look at the $16.1 trillion that the Federal Reserve has funneled into businesses around the world. Whatever happened to that thing called capitalism? This is not capitalism; it’s fascism! The more societies break down and the bigger the screw-ups at the top, the harder they clamp down on the bottom. You see it going on around the world; they call it austerity measures. How about calling it enslavement?” – Gerald Celente, “Gerald Celente on Trend Forecasting and the Crisis of Western Civilization,” The Daily Bell, January 22, 2012.
“There is no doubt, in my view, that the elites practiced directed history in the 20th century, setting up wars and economic catastrophes designed to consolidate world government. But in the 21st century, with so many understanding and evaluating the mechanisms of the elites, this is a considerably harder trick to pull off.” – Anthony Wile, “Yes, The War for the Internet Has Begun,” The Daily Bell, January 21, 2012.
Al-Media, not Al-Qaeda, is the biggest threat to Western freedom and global security.
The goal of Al-Media is to destroy the United States of America, erase the traditions of law and liberty in the West, and sell to the West a technological slave system disguised as a “new world order.”
The information terrorists in Al-Media, aka the pundits, news anchors, and journalists, concealed the real perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks from public view and directed the world on the false trail of Jihadi terrorists.
Instead of serving as a guide for accurate information in dangerous and apocalyptic times, the Western mainstream media has acted as an evil predator that lies about issues of war and peace, life and death.
Elitist editors and reporters, many of whom are in the employment of government intelligence agencies, do not consider themselves to be part of the general public, but as part of the wolf class that preys on the defenseless masses who are lost in the enclosed fields of ignorance and blindness. They are like the predatory religious clerics of Iran who eat the brains of the people while pretending to be their guardians.
In the West, there is no turban to distinguish the wolf class from the rest of society. The evil predators appear in journalist clothes and prepare the people for slaughter by stuffing their brains with war fever, fanciful tales, dramatic narratives, and pseudo patriotism. Then they stand back and watch with pure joy in their cold hearts when their hard work to start a war pays off.
We saw this after 9/11 when a lot of journalists and reporters were smiling at the thought of a war in Afghanistan. The bombings and military movements was a huge rush for them. And we can see the same feelings of excitement and joy in journalists and cable pundits as the drum-beat for war against Iran gets louder.
Anthony Wile, the founder of The Daily Bell website, says that Western elites employ “dominant social themes – fear-based promotions – that are designed to frighten middle classes into giving up wealth and power to specially prepared globalist institutions.” Al-Media is central to this political, social, and cultural process.
Somebody like Fox News’s Rupert Murdoch is the Ayman Al Zawahiri of Al-Media. The heads of CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, The New York Times, etc., are probably all highly involved in the strategic and political operations of Al-Media. 9/11 was their most successful act of information terrorism.
But the Western mainstream media is experiencing major blowback. There is a massive political awakening in America and throughout the West. The younger generation has switched to the Internet to get their news and analysis, which is more fact-based than the trash on television and the trash in the newspapers.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh talked about the “collapse of the mainstream press” in a conversation with Larry Jacobs, a professor of political science at the University of Minnesota, and former Vice President Walter Mondale in December 2009. Hersh said:
“We didn’t do the job, and I say we collectively, because We The Press . . did not challenge the president. We joined the team. We became jingoistic. It was very hard not to be. It was very hard not to, after 9/11. We wanted payback, we wanted to bomb. Everybody wanted to bomb Afghanistan.”
The collapse of the Western mainstream press couldn’t have come at a better time. It is a sign of hope that democracy is alive and that the West is far from dead. The collapse is giving way to the rebirth of fact-based journalism on the web, which is laying the foundations for a new global political era based on truth-telling and the rule of law.
Reviving free speech in the West will require a long, sustained, and determined effort. After all, our societies are under an information siege. But we must keep the faith that what we are doing in the alternative, fact-based media is making a dent in public opinion and the psychology of the people.
Truth-telling is easy, and its value is unmistakable. The media manipulators of mass reality have the more difficult job, especially since they have lost their monopoly over the distribution of information. That’s why their days are numbered.
The fall of Al-Media is a clear indicator that the forces of freedom and reason in the West are regaining lost ground in the battlefield that matters most – the mind.
