Elite Panicking? Independent Media Has More Power Than Mainstream Media

Published

on

Recently Google and Facebook came under fire about helping to stop ‘fake news.’ Many believe this was brought on by angry people who were upset about Hillary losing the election and were looking for someone to blame.

Immediately came the reports that ‘false news’ and ‘fake news’ about Hillary was to blame for why she lost. What really happened was independent media outlets did their due diligence in digging into information, found out what Hillary has been up to and reported on it. This included leaks from WikiLeaks and other whistleblowers.

Of course, the media came forward and began calling WikiLeaks a non-credible source. They stated that Russian hacks were at the helm of much of it so as to distract people from looking at the truth, but it didn’t work, because independent media was too powerful.

So now there is a mass effort to discredit, call out and shun independent media for supposedly reporting on fake news. Who defines it as fake news? That’s the question of the hour right now.

Let’s truly understand what’s going on with fake news first.

BuzzFeed did a great story on this showing how legitimately false stories gained a ton of attention. This is a problem for all of us because it’s legitimately false info that is spreading. However, the focus now gets turned on all independent outlets who are going against the mainstream narrative but who are reporting on factual news.

Let’s not get confused, fake news is fake news. And most of the websites doing their due diligence to call out fake news are doing so by only focusing on fake stories. The list that surfaced calling out ‘fake news’ contains a number fo websites that do not post any fake news at all.

This is the problem.

Why Independent News Is Necessary

Let’s put things into perspective for a moment. We are here at Standing Rock in North Dakota reporting on what’s happening down here with the Dakota Access Pipeline. There is absolutely no mainstream media down here. No one covering what’s going on at all. Why? Money, business, politics, it’s what drives mainstream media and its corruption.

It’s not hard to understand why independent news exists given these facts. With the majority of the mainstream media being owned by just five corporations, diverse viewpoints and interpretations of world events have become scarce. And when you understand that most outlets are serving some sort of corporate or political agenda, you start to notice how those biases play out in the representation of certain stories, and even in how frequently they’re covered. Showing certain stories over others, and showing them repeatedly, goes a long way towards shaping public opinion.

A great quote here that directly related to modern day mainstream media.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), Propaganda, 1928 (note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote).

Many are unaware of how often important stories are blacked out completely by all of mainstream media. The major pipeline spill that occurred during the Standing Rock protests or the revelation that the Pentagon paid a PR firm to create fake terrorist videos are just two recent examples. Are these not things the people should know about? Why aren’t they being reported on?

This leads us to wonder if there is in fact an agenda to hide this information. And how might that work? Sharyl Atkisson, a former CBS investigative journalist, explained that “astroturf,” or fake grassroots movements, funded by political, corporate, or other special interests, are very effectively manipulating and distorting mainstream media messages.

Further, here is a document declassified by the CIA that outlines their involvement in manipulating media, journalists, authors, films, and more to have “reporters postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories that could have adversely affected national security interests or jeopardized sources and methods.” The ‘national security’ play has always been a way for these agencies to justify shady actions.

Given the shady dealings, agency manipulation, and ownership structure of most of mainstream media, the need for alternative voices is clear. But how should we view those alternative voices? Do we take their work at face value?

The Problems With Independent News & Mainstream News

I have seen a lot in the past seven years and I have seen the independent movement lose a lot of credibility — for GOOD reason. It’s easy to dismiss alternative news websites because so many of them so carelessly carry out their work. There are good ones out there, but they are vastly outnumbered by the bad. This is the actual problem with fake and false news. 

I decided to write this because, as someone working within this movement and who cares a lot about creating a better world, I want people to know the truth so they can make informed decisions. As much as I respect many people for what they do, there is an inherent danger in not raising awareness about this. If we expose mainstream media, we should expose alternative media too; it’s only fair.

One of the main issues is that people are not reading content these days. They are reading headlines and making complete decisions based on those headlines. While outlets have to stay vigilant with writing good and clear headlines, people also need to read articles to actually check for sources, legitimacy and what the mains points of the piece are. This isn’t happening!

The honest truth is that everyone is guilty of writing bad headlines sometimes. Huffpost, Buzzfeed, TYT, MSNBC, CNN, or any independent site. Everyone does it at some point, because no one is perfect and sometimes it’s necessary. This is why it’s important for readers to actually read content and to really learn to use discernment rather than just reading a title.

Connecting with how the information makes you feel at a deeper level than our belief systems is what will help us to really discern truth. We are being challenged to grow, to go within and to understand ourselves at a deeper level.

I wrote an entire piece of what to watch out for in independent media sites here.

Why It Has to Change But May Not For A While

People are starting to realize en mass that the mainstream media has its own agendas, and rarely, if ever, do they align with our well-being. They are starting to move away from this sponsored, biased content and looking for other sources. The question becomes, what will they find instead?

The elite controlled media is panicking right now. They are trying to figure out for the first time in their existence how independent media gained more power than they did during this election cycle and ultimately lost. This isn’t to say Trump isn’t able to be manipulated by the cabal, but that he clearly wasn’t their choice.

Because the media and cabal is frantic right now, they are going to do anything in their power to divert attention away from websites that aren’t actually reporting on fake news, but that are a threat to the mainstream narrative, a threat to the establishment. Fake news doesn’t seem to be the issue when you look at the list of websites who made the list of “false or fake news”.

As a media organization that spends a lot of time doing what we do, hiring the necessary people to make sure work is done right and articles researched properly, we have to stand up and continue to raise awareness about what is really happening here. This is an attack on websites that are helping to wake people up from the mainstream narrative. 

So now you know. You know what to look out for and what to do. My advice is, stop supporting and sharing content that isn’t sourced or well researched. Think twice, three times or even four times about what narrative mainstream media is pushing on you. Sharing content from certain outlets only further confuses this entire process.

A UFO The Size Of Planet Earth Seen Hovering Near Saturn

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The picture here comes from a long time NASA scientist, one of many photos covered-up and hid from the public from the Voyager mission in 1980. That mission was tasked with photographing Saturn, its rings and its moons.

  • Reflect On:

    What does this mean for humanity? Why the cover-up? Are we ready to accept that this may be a reality? What kinds of implications are there from the realization that we are not alone, and that highly advanced, intelligent beings are out there?

The pictures NASA got back from the Voyager mission to Saturn in 1980 were apparently so mind-altering that they locked them up–at least that’s what retired U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major Bob Dean said in this lecture. He also showed numerous photographs from the Apollo missions that were never released to the public. You can view some of those photographs here. Multiple governments, like Russia, have been calling for an international investigation as to where photographs, footage and Moon rocks disappeared to.

The picture above does not come from Dean, it comes from one of his good friends Norman Bergrun, a scientist and engineer who was part of NASA’s voyager program. He worked at NASA for decades at the Ames Research Centre. He also worked at Lockheed Martin where he managed the Polaris missile tests. Unfortunately, he recently passed. You can view his obituary here.

He is a legend for going public.

Luminous Source

What is the picture of? It’s a “luminous source,” that comes from Bergrun’s Book, “The Ringmakers of Saturn.” He had to go through a lot of trouble to publish it, and had to leave the country in order to do so, as Dean explained in the lecture linked above.

According to Bergrun, there are several large craft “proliferating” out around Saturn and its moons. His book goes into much greater detail, and although it’s hard to find and costs thousands of dollars, it is linked online, here.

Frustrated By Non-Disclosure

According to Dean, Bergrun got frustrated later in life that the decision was made not to tell the public what they had photographed at Saturn. My previous article Long-Time Nasa Scientist Blows The Whistle On Tall Black Extraterrestrial Beings describes Bergrun exposing the existence of what he calls extraterrestrial ‘vehicles’ that were responsible for making the rings around Saturn.

In a rare interview he gave with Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot (below), he expressed his great concern of the UFO cover-up and stated with enthusiasm that “people have got to be made aware that those things are real.” I’ve presented this video in multiple articles, but you cannot present this interview if you’re writing an article about Norman Bergrun!

The Takeaway

In his book, Norman makes it a clear point to emphasize that these objects have probably been around much longer than we have. He also states that if there was any ill intent towards our planet, something probably would have happened by now and there is a reason that these objects (which he stated are intelligently controlled, not by us) have not come in close proximity to our planet. By coming closer than they already are they may, and already probably do have some effects on our own weather. This is something Norman also mentions in his book.

A lot of ridicule and fear exists behind this topic, and today it’s no longer taboo as mainstream disclosure has begun. We are becoming more aware, and despite mainstream media and the global elite having a lot to lose from the disclosure of this type of information (propulsion systems, oil, etc..), the truth is leaking out. It’s a field filled with information and disinformation, so one has to be cautious and remain skeptical. At the end of the day, we know that we are not alone, and it has huge implications for all areas of humanity–not the least of which is that it will ultimately force humanity to look within.

More awareness of this presence is coinciding with a massive ‘spiritual’ awakening that’s happening on the planet, and this is not by coincidence. It seems that a growing awareness of what’s out there will serve to help humanity better understand itself.

Google CEO’s Testimony Further Collapses Russian Interference Narrative

Published

on

AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Recent testimony from Google CEO Sundar Pichai takes yet another leg out of the crumbling Russian election-meddling narrative used to cast doubt on the Trump presidency.

  • Reflect On:

    Is the Deep State, through mainstream media, simply projecting all the things they do themselves? How else would they know how to build these narratives so well? Breaking this illusion is an important step in awakening our consciousness.

The importance of specific nuances within the recent 2016 Presidential election in the United States is not widely discussed as we often get too caught up in political sides, our own narratives and propaganda from mainstream media.

Point blank, this recent election illustrated a changing of the guard when looking specifically at the shadow government or Deep State. This is missed by the average person as their faith still rests in democracy, the left-right voting paradigm and the idea that the government actually runs the country. This nuance is missed by some in alternative media sources who, even though they may recognize the existence of the cabal, cannot get out from behind their own narrative enough to recognize the signs that the cabal is losing power.

And of course, those who watch, listen to and rely on mainstream media are simply misinformed on most issues–deeply. Mainstream media is owned and operated by this cabal, and of late they’ve been clinging to their narratives like there’s no tomorrow. The key takeaway when discussing this nuance is in the fact that this isn’t about left vs right, but about the cabal losing power. More on this later.

RussiaGate Right Out Of The Gate

Shortly after the 2016 election ended and people had gotten over the shock that Donald Trump would be the next president of the United States, ‘fake news’ and ‘Russian election meddling’ became the focus for why Hillary lost. While at first many blamed ‘stupid old white men,’ a meme sill alive today, the focus soon changed to a new and potentially more potent theory, fully supported by the DNC, that Russia must have been the cause.

The problem was, the theory had little to no evidence, and that has not changed. It’s also proving to be a very large distraction that still lives on to this day regardless of the fact that time and time again, it is proven to be illegitimate.

Still, mainstream media continues to promote it, as seen in the Bezos-owned Washington Post article Without the Russians, Trump Wouldn’t Have Won, or in a NewYorker article entitled How Russia Helped Swing the Election for Trumpwhich posits “…forensic analysis of the available evidence and concludes that Russia very likely delivered Trump’s victory.”

CNN came under a lot of fire during the Russian meddling allegations for continually publishing fake news stories about it. Some CNN reporters even resigned after they had to retract false stories. There is also a video of a CNN reporter stating “they have nothing” and “it’s for ratings”, when referring to Russian election interference. More on all of that here.

Google CEO’s Damning Testimony

The reason why this narrative is so important to the deep state is multifaceted. It continues to promote control over social media networks, it continues to produce the idea that Trump only won due to a rigged election, it continues to create hate and divide amongst the populace, it continues to created an enemy in Russia, who now is being blamed in some mainstream circles as the cause of France’s unrest! Whether people believe it all or not, it still continues to distract them from the underlying reality that the deep state is losing power and falling apart at the seams.

In the most recent development, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai testified about political bias and data collection before a Congressional committee on December 11th, 2018. He was questioned about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and what he revealed essentially collapsed the entire narrative. He discussed transparently that the number of ads that were purchased via Google by “Russians” totaled less than $5000 worth, and that the ads didn’t push for Trump or Hillary.

What should be headlines all over America, is nothing more than brushed under the rug by MSM. Below you can hear more analysis on this by RT news. I do want to point out, I don’t particularly support the tone of this interview, but nonetheless, the analysis and facts are there.

Projection

So we have to ask the question: what is really going on here? When we closely analyze what’s been taking place in recent times, we begin to see that there is a great deal of projection going on here.

The ploy to blame Russia for election meddling seems more likely borne out of the idea that Americans are easily convinced that Russia is an enemy and they do bad things. Further to that, the Deep State, including the Clintons, had allegedly been colluding with Russia in the Uranium One deal. And the FBI refuses to release three dozen memos that would yield a full investigation. Why? And why does there seem to be a gag order on this story in mainstream media?

Claims that “fake news” is a huge problem and that we need to crack down are abundant in the mainstream; the fact is that the Deep State uses mainstream media to control and limit narratives and purposefully misinform the public on events. Note that at least 200 independent media pages have been ousted by Facebook after political pressure from this election. Why? Because independent media was able to bring different narratives to millions and millions of people, a huge threat to the mainstream media and the Deep State. They then called these independent media outlets “fake news” purveyors and removed them from people’s view. Thus, the very thing they are calling out others for is what they themselves are doing, and of course with all their experience they know how to do that VERY well.

Headlines could very easily be all over mainstream media about these things, but they aren’t. Instead, search results are overwhelmingly littered with the Russian election meddling narrative at the simple touch of typing the word ‘Russian’ in Google.

The Takeaway

Awakening to these truths is a crucial step in breaking the illusion about our world so we can properly move forward. Breaking the illusion IS a consciousness-based process as well. It’s about a level of expansion within ourselves that allows us to awaken to the reality beyond the manipulation of the mind and ego consciousness. The world becomes much more clear when we shift to this state, and the solutions that arise out of this state of being are not ones that continue to fuel our currently polarized world, but ones that will end the existence of this cabal, and that will further move along the process of allowing humanity to thrive.

The reason Trump is a threat, and why we mentioned above that the important nuance is a changing of the guard, is because he is playing the role of figurehead for a deeper intelligence community that has long been aligned together for the purposes of removing the Deep State from power. The environment to achieve this and ultimately move this process along is created by our collective consciousness. We must evolve our consciousness along with these actions for us to see them fully realized.

Yellow Vests Update: CNN Says They Are Creating Chaos, But Are They?

Published

on

Credit: Photo by IBL/REX/Shutterstock

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In a recent CNN article, they claim that the Yellow Vests are creating 'chaos in France.' But are they actually creating chaos? Or is there a bigger picture here?

  • Reflect On:

    Are we taking the time to look at multiple angles of coverage on this groundbreaking event to better determine truth? Is there a bigger play going on where the elite is scrambling to control this narrative?

France may never be the same. Protests, tear gas and more are filling the major cities in France as the “Yellow Vests” come together in the tens of thousands to raise awareness about a long list of demands they have for their government. Before we get into our most recent analysis, let’s have a recap of what has happened as of yet.

The current protest is being called the biggest and one of the most violent in the past 50 years. One of the most significant aspects of this recent uprising is multiple occurrences of police officers removing their helmets in solidarity with protesters. It brought some to tears and inspired many others, as it illustrated a level of solidarity that isn’t often seen in public protests. Everybody in France is being affected by the decisions being made by Macron and the governments of years prior, a story we covered in more detail here.

This is what we are seeing glimpses of when we watch police, firefighters, and protesters unify as people. Beyond their uniforms, they are all just people, living through an experience that affects them all. This is a terrifying reality for the Deep State as they and their system thrives off of humanity being divided, at war with one another and emotionally triggered and invested in the cabal’s system.

This is probably one of the biggest reasons why mainstream media doesn’t talk about this particular story, one where people are unifying. Instead, they want to focus on the crazy, wild protester vs the calm, needed police who protect the establishment.–Joe Martino, from his recent article explaining why the Deep State has a problem in France

Media Perception Control

This movement has seen no shortage of perception manipulation. This is why, as I’ve written about and documented many times before, intelligence/government agencies have a very close relationship with mainstream media. Mainstream media will always present events that show how much we are unifying and coming together, in a completely different manner. CE writer Richard Enos, who recently published an article with regards to what’s going on in France, sums up the issue quite well here.

Of course, what do we hear about most in the Mainstream Media when it comes to legitimate protests? An initial strategy might be to disperse the focus of the message, portray it as if people have many different agendas, ‘muddy the waters’ if you will, and hope that quenches things a bit. If the movement does not die down by itself, then we inevitably hear about how violent it has become. This one is no exception.

advertisement - learn more

But are they really violent? Or are they just presented that way? Are those who oppose these gatherings encouraged to start violence? Once a movement like this becomes so popular, are there hired ‘groups’ that come in an initiate violence? Provocateurs?

If there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that the establishment does not like peaceful demonstrations of unity and solidarity, and they will do anything to sway the perception of the masses who are watching at home.

Don’t believe it? Look at all the mainstream headlines. As usual, they are all about violence and how order will be restored (order out of chaos, ordo ab chao, the timeless strategy of the elite). Meanwhile, the actual reason that so many ordinary citizens would go to the trouble of protesting is buried somewhere in the article and given little importance. The New York Times’ ‘Macron Inspects Damage After ‘Yellow Vest’ Protests as France Weighs State of Emergency’ is a typical example.

We have to ask ourselves: would a grassroots movement of concerned law-abiding citizens (which most citizens are) motivate these ordinary citizens to set someone’s car on fire? How could destroying another citizen’s car actually help the movement? Looting and breaking store windows? Why would law-abiding citizens take their frustrations out on innocent retail vendors? Would ordinary citizens contrive to harm civilians with bombs and gas attacks? – Richard Enos

Recent Terror Attacks?

Then suddenly, in the midst of an epic event raising so much attention, we see an alleged terror attack in Strasbourg, the perfect time to not only change the news cycle but to divert attention away from the Yellow Vets and back to FEAR and the narrative of TERRORISM! These are the big and timeless tactics used to start wars and keep people divided.

Are they legitimate? False flags like so many times in the past? Or is it all a convenient coincidence for the deep state and media?

CNN & Mainstream Put Forth Narrative

Below is a video of Joe Martino, founder of CE, providing analysis on some of the latest updates regarding the Yellow Vests, including a recent CNN piece claiming the Yellow Vets are creating ‘chaos in France.’ Big things are happening in France and the way we’re hearing about it has some very specific nuances that we will fail to recognize unless we step back and look at the bigger picture.

The Takeaway

When searching for information, it’s important to seek out multiple sources other than mainstream media. This is exactly why alternative or independent media outlets become so popular, because more people are starting to see through the lies and manipulation from mainstream outlets. Alternative media has gained the attention of millions of people, as it often presents evidence that supports a more believable, common-sense narrative that is not in the Deep State’s best interest.

The global elite lost their ability to keep all eyes on their platforms, and as a result many people have ‘woken up.’ This created a massive campaign to combat “fake news,” a tag that the mainstream originally concocted for alternative views that they considered dangerous to the status quo. And so recently the government, along with organizations like Facebook, has decided to step in and act as the ‘Ministry of Truth’ (Orwell).

Fortunately, the ‘war on fake news’ only further exposed how the global elite are trying to silence ANYTHING that opposes their plans. We are truly living in some interesting times!

“The problem of fake news isn’t solved by hoping for a referee, but rather because we as citizens, we as users of these services, help each other. We talk and we share and we point out what is fake. We point out what is true. The answer to bad speech is not censorship, the answer to bad speech is more speech. We have to exercise and spread the idea that critical thinking matters, now more than ever, given the fact that lies seem to be getting more popular.” –Edward Snowden (source)
