Mainstream corporate media is ruining the United States elections, and in this insightful video, Amy Goodman from Democracy Now explains why. She compares Bernie Sanders — someone who is currently making history and garnering the attention of millions — to Donald Trump, noting how Trump’s airtime greatly exceeds that of Sanders.
This is not surprising, however, as Sanders himself has called out mainstream corporate media for its bias, and many award-winning journalists have done the same, illustrating how mainstream media is plagued by corporate, intelligence, political, and financial interests.
Some of these interests are furthered through pushing the idea that the world faces a great threat, that we are in danger, and must accordingly give more money to the department of defence and more of our personal freedoms to the government; national security must be heightened in order to combat ‘terrorism.’ We have been seeing this with ISIS a lot lately, and with terrorism in general.
Mainstream media ties terrorism to the Muslim faith when they have nothing to do with one another, and unfortunately, this propaganda campaign has been successful in its efforts, brainwashing many people, especially in the United States, into fearing Muslims.
Anonymous describes the situation perfectly, noting that because “the majority of mainstream media outlets serve corporate interests, bias reporting of controversial topics—particularly Muslims and the terror threat—has become a troubling and pressing issue.”
In response to this clear scapegoating of an entire people, last December, thousands of Muslims took to the streets of London, UK, to protest in what has now because the annual March Against Terrorism.
Below is a little clip of the demonstration. Signs brought to the rally read “Islam promotes human rights” and “terrorism has no religion” in order to let people know that the core of the Islamic faith, as with most other religions, is peace.
It is the shame of our age that the Muslim community continues to be misrepresented by mainstream media and bear the brunt of our hatred and fear. The only stories we ever hear about Muslims are related to terrorism, and this is pure propaganda meant to serve Western interests. Stories about suspected terrorists and attacks on Western cities receive extensive media coverage, while the real story — that Muslims around the world oppose terrorism and ISIS, and that ISIS was created by the Western military alliance — receives none. Ask yourself, what is really going on here?
ISIS & False Flag Terrorism.
“The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.”

We’ve published several articles on false flag terrorism and ISIS, so my apologies if you’ve come across this information before, but with the clear bias in mainstream media preventing most people from hearing these facts, it’s important to continually get this information out there as much as possible.
Many people remain unaware of the connection between ‘terrorism’ and Western nations. Called false flag terrorism, it is the idea that the United States (and allied countries) are culpable in these terrorist events; that they have vested interests in creating and prolonging conflict, and accordingly finance terrorist groups so they can justify invading other countries and heightening security in their own — allowing them to increasingly diminish our rights in the process. And this idea is not mere conspiracy theory. Many intelligent and respected experts have been saying this for years. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, for example, made it quite plain before he died:
The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money. (source)
At the International Conference on the New World Order, which was organized and sponsored by the Perdana Global Peace Foundation, prominent author and Canadian economist Dr. Michel Chossudovsky told the world that Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations, including the Islamic State, are sponsored by the United States and its allies:
It is documented that prior to 2011, there was a process of recruitment of mujahideen to fight in Syria, and this was coordinated by NATO and the Turkish high command. This report is confirmed by Israeli news sources and unequivocally, we are dealing with a state-sponsorship of terrorism, the recruitment of mercenaries, the training and the financing of terrorism.

At the same conference, he also made the following arguments:
We are dealing with a criminal undertaking at a global level . . . and there is an ongoing war, it is led by the United States, it may be carried out by a number of proxy countries, which are obeying orders from Washington . . . The global war on terrorism is a US undertaking, which is fake, it’s based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic state, when in fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf. . . . They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are Made in America. They’re not the product of Muslim society, and that should be abundantly clear to everyone on this floor. . . . The global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity.

Russian president Vladimir Putin also exposed a number of countries who are funding ISIS at the last G20 Summit. As RT News reports:
[During the summit] I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them.
The recent release of the Hillary Clinton email archive as well as leaked Pentagon documents also confirms that the US and its allies supported ISIS, who, according to various press reports, are the alleged terrorists behind the Brussels attacks.
This 7-page Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document, dated August of 2012, exposes US complicity in supporting the creation of an Islamic State.
It’s important to consider whether these constant attacks, especially overseas, are a result of incompetence by the US Air Force or Washington’s complicity in protecting the terrorists.
These questions have been being asked ever since the terror war industry began, and it’s becoming clear that the Western military alliance has had plans to invade other countries for their own purposes well in advance of the terrorist attacks to which they were purportedly responding.
Here is a great video of the now-retired Four Star US General Wesley Clark telling the world that the United States likes to take over other countries because they have a good military and can take down governments.
The evidence is piling up, and as we move through 2016 and beyond, more people are starting to see through the system being controlled by corporate and financial interests. Regardless of who is elected, the main power that controls the U.S government and their allies must be held accountable and dismantled.
I will leave you with the quote below, which comes from John F. Hylan, who was the mayor of New York City from 1918-1925:
The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . . The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties . . . [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.
