The US currently has troops on the ground in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, and even more if you consider what they claim is only an “advisory” role. So is the US currently in a world war? Is this all an elaborate show? Or is this just modern politics as never before seen?
With the rise of Trump 2.0 in the current French election, the entire “anti-establishment” candidate concept seems to be the next generation of political manipulation. Just as the American people stood witness as Trump devolved into the very warmongering, globalist, Goldman-Sachs-cabinet-stacking elitist that Trump himself demonized all along the campaign trial, the French people will watch as Le Pen does the same dance right into the established order; all while her followers vehemently defend all the backward actions.
It seems that all the moves are beginning to crescendo into a final push for what will ultimately be “the solution” of globalism, to “the problem” of nationalist politics. Mainstream media is doing its part, as the information arm of the effort, to bring every individual willing and misinformed into the new age of mental slavery. There are no doubt those within still attempting to spread truth when possible, yet the system today is so tightly controlled that when one steps out of line, they simply disappear. Just as Ben Swann, once considered a mainstream champion of truth to the independent media community, quickly found out after covering a story that was, to the mainstream community, off-limits.
Robert Parry, an investigative reporter who broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s, chose to go another route, and broke away from what was quickly becoming a shadow of the profession he once knew:
In the old days of journalism, we were taught that there were almost always two sides to a story, if not more sides than that. Indeed, part of the professional challenge of journalism was to sort out conflicting facts on a complicated topic. Often we found that the initial impression of a story was wrong once we understood the more nuanced reality.
Today, however, particularly on foreign policy issues, the major U.S. news outlets, such as The New York Times and The Washington Post, apparently believe there is only one side to a story, the one espoused by the U.S. government or more generically the Establishment.
Any other interpretation of a set of facts gets dismissed as “fringe” or “fake news” even if there are obvious holes in the official story and a lack of verifiable proof to support the mainstream groupthink. Very quickly, alternative explanations are cast aside while ridicule is heaped on those who disagree.
Welcome to another episode of TLAV Political Roundtable where we break down the week of American politics, and discuss the implication on American life, and the world. In this week’s episode we discuss the upcoming French election and the striking similarities to the recent US election, the war that is beginning to show all over the world, and the lies and manipulation that brought this to pass.
Our sole objective as an independent media organization, is to bring you the Truth that is so desperately needed in this time of intense surveillance and control, and we plead with you to ask questions, think critically, and support whichever independent media group you feel best represent the truth, be it us or another that has won your trust. But even then, think critically and always follow the change, be the change.
