This is how you brainwash a society

They are creating an environment where censorship is the norm here in the “Land of the Free.”

More troubling still, Newsguard — by virtue of its deep connections to government and Silicon Valley — is lobbying to have its rankings of news sites installed by defaulton computers in U.S. public libraries, schools, and universities as well as on all smartphones and computers sold in the United States.

How a NeoCon-Backed “Fact Checker” Plans to Wage War on Independent Media

 

Here’s the real issue:

The Washington Post, whose $600 million conflict of interest with the CIA goes unnoted by Newsguard, has also published false stories since the 2016 election, including one article that falsely claimed that “Russian hackers” had tapped into Vermont’s electrical grid.

 

By their own bullshit you shall know them…

“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
–Senator Chuck Schumer, 2017


“Don’t you understand the way intelligence works? Do you think that because I’m chairman of the Intelligence Committee that I just say ‘I want it, give it to me’? They control it. All of it. All of it. All the time.”
–Senator Jay Rockefeller, 2007

 

They infiltrate the media, dirty police departments, drug-trafficking cartels, and terrorist organizations. They lie with impunity and bury secrets indefinitely. They spy on whomever they like and commit blackmail and false-flag terrorism with impunity. And Hollywood idiots turn them into heroes.

Higher education has been financialized, transformed from a public service into a lucrative cash cow for private investors.

The advantages of slavery by debt over “chattel” slavery – ownership of humans as a property right – were set out in an infamous document called the Hazard Circular, reportedly circulated by British banking interests among their American banking counterparts during the American Civil War. It read in part:

Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are glad of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborers, while the European plan, led by England, is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages.

Slaves had to be housed, fed and cared for. “Free” men housed and fed themselves. For the more dangerous jobs, such as mining, Irish immigrants were used rather than black slaves, because the Irish were expendable. Free men could be kept enslaved by debt, by paying them wages that were insufficient to meet their costs of living. On how to control wages, the Hazard Circular went on:

This can be done by controlling the money. The great debt that capitalists will see to it is made out of the war, must be used as a means to control the volume of money. . . . It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that.

The government, too, had to be enslaved by debt. It could not be allowed to simply issue the money it needed to meet its budget, as Lincoln’s government did with its greenbacks (government-issued US Notes). The greenback program was terminated after the war, forcing the government to borrow from banks – banks that created the money themselves, just as the government had been doing. Only about 10% of the “banknotes” then issued by banks were actually backed by gold. The rest were effectively counterfeit. The difference between government-created and bank-created money was that the government issued it and spent it on the federal budget, creating demand and stimulating the economy. Banks issued money and lent it, at interest. More had to be paid back than was lent, keeping the supply of money tight and keeping both workers and the government in debt.

TOP 25 CENSORED STORIES

There’s a one-click response to any deluded Pollyannas who believe we have a “free press” in this country. No. We have a very expensive, highly selective press. We have a press controlled by 6 corporations with wide-ranging interests and conflicts of interest. To believe otherwise is ignorant and foolish.
