verriker, first I am not your mate, then the psychological analyses coming from a guy whose 3/4 of HC posts consist in compulsive bashing of Erwan, a guy who is not even here to defend himself and put you back in your shoes, I can pass, but thanks for the head up, I will meditate for a short time on the issue you loling about.
Now now, let's not confuse on thing with the other.. the Ubi stuff is certainly another battleground between generic identity-less global consumerism and things that have value and meaning.

Back to the topic I guess... listened to a song from Five Finger Death Punch and thought of The Donald...

Quote:

I've given up
On the media
Feeds my hysteria
Sick of living down on my knees
I've given up
On morality
Feeds my brutality
snow what you think about me

All of the chaos
And all of the lies
I hate it

I'm wasting here
Can anyone wash it all away
I'm waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away

Oh Fredagar...I like to "invite my surveillance" at least once in a blue moon. It makes me feel like I "actually" have some sort of control over our Monstrously snoopy Big-Brother.

lol suggestive clickbait
trump is not the heart of anything

"Against this backdrop, however alarming Trump’s attacks on the media are, they are less significant than other actions that, paradoxically, have received far less media coverage – but that present a very real threat to journalism and freedom of speech in America.

But the relaxation of oversight with regard to concentration of the media industry – mirroring other sectors, including banking, though receiving far less attention – is even more worrying. The FCC and the justice department both oversee competition, or antitrust, policy for telecommunications. And both have been asleep at the switch for years. The internet-access industry has become a tight oligopoly, which keeps the price and speed of US internet access far behind those of other industrial nations.

Even this isn’t the worst of it. The large internet providers are now acquiring the media properties for which, increasingly, their services are essential. Amazon has bought the Washington Post. Verizon is buying Yahoo and has already purchased AOL, the owner of the Huffington Post. AT&T is buying Time Warner, which owns CNN and HBO among other channels. A large portion of the news media will soon be owned by enormous companies with very strong special interests of their own."

Forget Trump.
The real issue is mediatocracy.

stop getting sucked into the headlines JJ and start looking at the big picture.

What's interesting to me is, although all JJ wrote was "Getting to the heart of it" while sharing an article that is partially mentioning Trump at best, Yogi replies "Trump isn't the heart of anything" by quoting the same article. So, JJ, I guess, in this thread, you conditioned people to think that what you share must be all about Trump.

Maybe, but if Yogi is an American I would say no. Because non-indoctrinated Americans with a working brain get Plenty that "it's all that Evil Trump" from nearly all the Global Media. The man has had a thousand mud-slingers on his back since he became the nominee and that fact has gotten even worse.

Btw, Artu. Remember when you made a comment about my jumping off the Bernie bandwagon? And I explained I was so ticked about the Multi-nationals (which is about all I heard that first speech) but when I began listening to the rest of what he said I was horrified?"

Fyi, I've seen his story lately and the dude was Socialist/Communist (terms don't matter in regime-change, since both want powerful STATES) from the get-go. Now, you may think that a small thing but his ties to the Soviet-Union were so strong that he honeymooned there and created a "sister-city" between his chosen US town and a city in the SU. Now notice something here...The Cold-War was still in full swing.

Believe it or not - Trump is up against a cabal of Socialist, Communists, Muslim Special Interests wanting to swell their ranks and a host of other "Special" united-fronts. You see, the true West needs to go under for the real Globalists to control everything. Right now the sold-out Media is our worst enemy, because it is a Mass-Media that does not report; it lies, manipulates and fabricates, ready to jump on anything that they can get any mileage out of, to further their master's-agenda.

Hope you're still with me here but please consider the following fact.
1. Hillary was to BE the appointed President...right?
2. Enough people in the USA were sick of "The Machine" that was in place for nearly two decades and voted Trump in. No one thought he would win.
3. All the Mass Media, as well as the duped-non-left-left went into hysterics and sobbing-fits or burned stuff.
4. Trump is relentlessly attacked before even sitting down. Follywood promised to "Move to Canada" but that did not happen, now did it? Instead like bawling babies they are still throwing tantrums THREE MONTHS LATER.
5. Now here's the Best-Part.

What was said about the Russians? "They Stole the Election." The Russians (instead of Wiki-leaks blowing the whistle on the whole dung-scum mess that was called the Democratic Party)the Russians hacked the system! And all the while, those same Democrats had rigged machines and signed up dead people and illegal-aliens to vote!

However, now we come to something that was/is not reported and not connected by the One-Cranium of the Global Media...Uranium.

Well, Katy-bar-the-door, who was it the made a deal with those oh so scary Russians well before the Election? Who was it that had a Foundation is which to enrich themselves based on international trade-deals or whatever else they could get between Nations...say...like a Uranium deal?

It was Hillary that "worked-for & got" Russian access to American uranium. And then those same Russians "magically" became the dreaded enemy again?

You see, everything all of us see, IS FARCE. So anyone here, getting their underwear all bunged-up because of the grand un-real news is not doing their health a favor.

This is so hopelessly deep in bullcrap territory, I'm more or less speechless. It's total, nonsensical bollocks, bollocks of the same kind as the big Jewish/Communist World conspiracy, some 80 years ago, that wanted the Aryans to go under instead of "the West".

So Markkur, you agree with Trump that

- EPA should basically be abolished (the regulations won't be enforced during his administration) Funding of it's 8 Billion will also be cut.
- State Department also gets cut of 30%, so less diplomacy. It's total budget was 50 Billion. Why?
- So that Military Budget of 600 Billion can get a 50 Billion increase into 650 Billion!
- You agree with Exxon Mobil CEO as your new Secretary of State?
- You agree with Wall Street having more insiders in Trump Administration that ever before?
- You agree about abolishing Affordable Care Act?
- ETC

I'd like to know what these so called lies are about Trump, because what I see is his own words, and if he doesn't know what he is talking about, it surely isn't medias fault!

trump's a turd, no doubt about it. but he's the ONLY turd who everyone is focusing on. he's the great white turd distraction. and people who know anything at all about american politics and the rotten mothersnowers running our country into the ground, know that.

Sorry Markkur but that post is a mess. There is socialism as a political movement in a democracy with its parties just like any other and then there is "the Socialist Regime" of Marxist doctrine. They are different things. Sanders was in favor of the first and quite openly I might add. His idea of state interference was not a totalitarian regime and although Americans (both conservative and libertarian) have very different norms when it comes to how minimal a state's interference should be, his suggestions are quite typical through a European perspective which is quite used to mainstream socialist movements.

I, for one, cannot understand, how ANYONE can believe that kind of nonsense. What kind of "information" or "facts" is that supposed to be based? And how can anyone believe in a coalition of "communists", "socialists", "special muslim interests" and "gloablism versus the "true West", whatever the hell the "true West" is supposed to be?

Special muslim interests? Ask the Bush family about those.

If I didn't like the guy, I wouldn't even answer to something like this and keep "speechless" just like JJ:

There is a social and economic conflict between transnational corporate capitalism (which is still overwhelmingly "the West" and U.S.A. btw, global economy operates on dollar, your currency) and local small business owners, the middle class portion of American capitalism. Trump plays witch hunt with populist rhetoric but even he doesn't seem to be talking about communists, not that I heard of. What Muslim special interests, what communism? Is neo-global politics controlled by disguised Muslims or communists?! That doesn't even make sense on a conspiracy theory level. It's absurd.
