lol, i know, right?

i wonder, has anyone else seen the movie "truth", about how dan rather and mary mapes' careers were ended when they attempted to expose bush jr's military record and how he was protected from ever going to vietnam?

here is a decent article regarding the movie, and dan rather's own stance on what happened.


it's a different media climate today, certainly, than it once was(if what happened to dan rather and mary mapes is any indication), only because the person currently at the helm isn't from the political side of the beast; but the corporate side of it.* hillary was the media's sweetheart, all arrows pointed to her(according to the media), for presidency. and you can see now, why they are gunning for trump's ass; because they failed in their brainwashing, and people temporarily saw through it.

now, they pulled out all the stops(they're not even bothering to hide it anymore, and have amped up their biased and directed bullsnow 1000-fold), and it's a great wonderment to me, how it could be beyond anyone's doubt now, what particular voice controls nearly ALL media now.



*that said, the media had a field day with bill clinton(while continually painting hillary as some kid of saint for over a decade), but they sure as hell did everything they could to try and bury what happened with the bush family; they're even promoting bush jr as a respectable guy now, and not the corrupt asshat he was during both terms of his presidency. it sickens me that people forgot what he did and who he stands for, and that he gets applause just because he was once president, and is still alive.

it's an abomination, that the entire bush administration's lying, rotten clustersnow isn't behind bars.

1. Check out the following news and hopefully you will be able to come out from under the thick fog that has been perpetuated by the global MSM.

Douma

***Very Important...at this same time***

I do not twitter but my better half tells me that President Trump just tweeted that the U.S. is holding 800 isis fighters that apparently are EU citizens. Our Prez has asked Europe to  take them and prosecute them in their respective countries AND if these countries do not, he will be forced to release them back into Europe. (I assume international law dictates such lunacy)

***Connect the dots my brothers and sisters***

[ Understand President Trump IS a good man; "a true "outsider that is hated by the embedded establishment" and seriously trying to bring PEACE but corrupt politicians and military figures "here in the States and abroad" want "to do business in Syria" (my guess) and Assad wants all foreign-interest (Corporations = think Halliburton in Iraq, etc.) to get the hell out of his country. Fyi, Senator Rand Paul recently had the balls to state, exactly that, in Congress. He is one of the few that has stood against the eternal-war crowd - time to get this folks...this is NOT only a U.S.-citizen's problem it is also a citizen of the EU's problem!

It is very important to add that every time my President speaks of getting out of the Middle East, the majority of Republicans and nearly all the Democrats in our Congress, oppose President Trump's pulling U.S. forces out of the M.E.

Another important & related note: After 2 years of "supposed" investigation after Millions of taxpayer dollars spent, the Senate stated - days ago - that President Trump had no collusion with Russia and CNN etc. will NOT tell the American people this costly conclusion...please ask yourself...WHY? ]

2. What will the EU do?...

Please...do your own research on topics that matter to you.

Jussie Smollet creates outrage on the left after claiming he was beaten by white males wearing maga hats.

Jussie Smollet whinning interview

"It feels like if I had said it was a Muslim or a Mexican or someone black, I feel like the doubters would have supported me a lot much more, and that says a lot about the place we are in our country right now," Smollett said.

but, wait...


This is Maga country, with a Nigerian accent

@ Sal & blob

There is a reason behind all the BS.

This short film was done months back and only take it as far as it "gives an idea" of what WE are all up-against.

United we stand...divided we fall.

@marrkur

To tell you the truth I don't know what kind of man Trump really is. Is he the good guy that tries to make a difference or a Russian agent that was staged to disorganize the States. I don't know.

But from my by-stander perspective, Trump seems like a very arrogant and irresponsible man that doesn't quite weight his words as much as a politician of his standing should. I'm thinking this because... I currently have the same kind of people ruling my country.

The whole SJ BS is another subject and it's probably true that it's another one of those Establishment ploys to keep things chaotic. Still, we now all need to face this problem.

Remember yours is a country that staged this whole "War on Terrorism" thing just to keep their "thing" going (bad economy state so it needed a boost etc). Consequently they crushed regimes that were keeping those same terrorists in check and now Europe must tackle with the immigrant bs more then ever... in short, you guys sticked your nose in ME, because "someone needed to do sth" and now Trump wants to leave us with our problems, like he left the Kurds for instance... and s*it will explode without US, that much is certain. Was it staged by this so-called Cabal, or was it "malpractice" only time will tell I guess.

With many good things the States have done for the civilization as a whole, It would be nice if you guys thought a bit more on how your "problems" ripple through the World.

PS: Referring to the video you linked, wasn't it called New World Order?

Most murders of Black people, are committed by Black people. As a "fun fact".

More cops are murdered by Black people than vice versa, if you look at NYC, then more than 50% of crime is committed by less than 20% of the population.

The whole Black lives matter movement is racist bullsnow mainly against White people, and a bad way of excusing the problems of a community.

----

As to the Isis fighter from Europe, Norway has had several "citizens" participating on behalf of Isis - but only one political party does not welcome them back, these people also rarely get punishment in Norway, as 87.5% of crimes reported in Norway are not followed through by the Police.

That's a 20 times fairer distribution than world wealth, where 50% is owned by the top 1%.

I think it safe to say; any person here that says they-know is full of something.

Currently, crystal clear Truth is not ready at hand for any of us and when it does appear, there is still Trust involved. <imo> The global masses, the citizens of all nations have been increasingly spoon-fed by the moolah of the (1% of the 1%) to OUR present-day blackout. There is a theory that this was and is a C_A method and hopefully we will see the light of day again.

But Trump a Russian agent? Possible but not very likely. I believe everything in the news is "Projection". "Racists calling non-racist people of all tints...racists is People that act like Nazis calling anyone that they detest...Nazi = That tactic destroys meaning & conversation and defies logic and yet it is now spread like cheap-butter and the good folks are toast. <imvho> This crap intensified after Trump was elected and they projected their crimes with Russia and China onto Trump. Think U-1 and fusion GPS, etc. I've seen some stuff that tells me, this country has been seriously high-jacked for DECADES.

blob2 said:

It's hard to see the guy behind the MSM-barrage of fake-news but for me it's easy to see something that "may" be the truth. The guy is less that a decade older than me and I can tell you, that if my past has to be cast in bronze and told the world and all of my sins made public fodder without any damned way to be a better person TODAY or dare I say: be a good person? <imo> That is exactly the ruling elite's trash-talk today. Seriously, commoners, like me, losing a job/position/post today for something done decades ago? I think redemption needs to be seated front-row-center again. There are no perfect people.

Does my Prez have an ego? Yes and a big one at that but I would enjoy a change of scenery with the old idea of true fair-reporting where he does not have to reach the American-public through a emo-monopoly called twaddle er twitter.

When I gave links to two black supporters of Trump (from many) it is because "they can say what I cannot" an olive-skinned person is not a dark-enough pigment to freely speak in the land of free-speech today. However, what is even more insane now, is having white & blacks calling other whites and blacks...racist but "that's been the public push"...Division.

I was prime for the draft in 1972 and had I been called to go to fight in Vietnam, I would have served. Thankfully, the war ended at nearly the same time, so I was not called. I had no idea the truth behind that war and it would be many years before I read what the hell happened back then. It is a huge and tragic story that should have ended in...Justice.

Something we all need to remember is; nations, such as Britain, United States, Germany, France, China, Russia, Israel, Turkey - (ALL nations) are generally not "the citizens doing things abroad" but the "controllers acting in the name of countries." Most of the time we have ZERO idea what "They" are doing and when you have state-run medias, it is very hard to find real news. btw, Bill Clinton paved the way for the USA to go from 70+ news-outlets to 6 colluding-entities, decades ago.

I would like us to do what we need make amends and be the Nation we once were. I may be proved wrong but I have listened many hours to my President and I think he seeks the same...a Constitutional-Republic that is not under the thumb of the phony and corrupt Federal-Reserve; there is nothing "Federal" about it...nada, zilch...zero.

Some would call it that. Global-puppeteers, Deep-State, Shadow-Government, the Cabal and a host of others. I think that there are competing-wings or "Collectives" that are in-part fighting behind the scenes and out of our vision. It is not likely that all the worlds bad folks are in agreement and all cozy with each other but they likely are in...hmm?...alignments for Greed and power-sharing.

One thing I learned through my short lifespan is not to trust a politician. Even if someone appears as a reasonable man, you can't be sure how he will turn out when placed in position of power. I can only wish you luck in "making America great again". America is currently not the "promised land" it appeared to be a couple of years ago...

I don't get the standard hype around "reasonable man". A reasonable man is all that a successful leader should never be. Pushing your people interests above others where every of the big guys is playing sharks, is nothing but a bloody skirmish to get the best for the people you are responsible of. You have to be smarter, crazier (in the sense of taking risks) and more aggressive than the others, successful politics is about making the impossible, that doesn't match with reasonable.

Also, trust a politician, what that ever means? You must ask him results and if he can't fulfill its promises, this is where your trust ends.

While no land is the "promised" as that implies some individual right for free, America is certainly the best place on earth to live at this time, granted you are in good health, ambitious, smart and open minded.

Is it still truth though? You can be successful in any country. I mean the overall atmosphere, there is a lot of social unrest in the West lately, America is but one country that currently struggles with it. Years ago it was the go-to country when everyone else was struggling.

Sounds a lot like Napoleon, who vocally expressed how he was chronically depressed and unhappy his entire life.

Machiavellian leaders are good at rapidly gaining status at the expense of other people and at the expense of their own happiness. The future rests in leaders who are more like Merkel. If you have leaders like Donald Trump popping up all over the place something very bad is eventually going to happen.

The benefit of the US is that our system has enough built-in countermeasures that so far, Trumps attempts to go beyond his constitutional power have largely failed. He has been shut down by either the courts or the legislature, or both, although whether or not those safeguards will last is not 100% certain. A large percentage of the USA is poorly educated (victims of circumstance) and that makes it easier for Trump to say and do stupid things. In a more unstable country a Trumpian leader is even more dangerous.

And so did Homer, Mozart, Beethoven, Goethe, Michelangelo, Dante, Van Gogh and the other 99,9% of visionaries who defined the spirituality at the foundation of the most successful ever civilization, ours.

Now, on a more serious note, I only wanted to say "a leader who fights for his people well being and does not plunder them so he can look virtuous at EU technocratic meetings". Like Macron for example, who invented the new art of taxation, strip people to bones then call them nationalists if they wake up.
