In the past year, much has begun to shift toward a new and unprecedented path for the nation. For the first time in living memory, Americans are beginning to question en masse what is handed down by the ruling faction, instead of simply falling in line. This is clearly demonstrated by the last-ditch effort of the dying mainstream media. They are now leveling the absurdly unverified accusation that any alternative news outlet, any blogger, anyone writing slightly controversial fortune cookies, are all “Fake News” as well as the new hyperbolic stone cast–that they’re also all Russian agents.
As that is entirely possible, we all must ask ourselves why they are not required to give even the smallest measure of proof to back up such accusations, just as they criticize the alt media for allegedly doing; this is indeed the year of contradictions. Every list of “fake news” is quickly being spread by the majority of mainstream outlets without even the slightest due diligence, and are completely compiled by way of personal opinion. Using these lists to restrict anyone from publishing either news or opinion, or even intentional lies, would be and already is, one of the largest and most blatant violations of constitutional rights in the history of censorship. Every American has the write to speak their mind, be it lies, half-truths or the elite’s Truth, it’s all protected under the Constitution of the United States of America, that which used to dictate the actions of the country’s leaders, yet now is seen as a hinderance to those seeking control of the American people.
Violating an American’s First Amendment right doesn’t even seem to make them flinch, which should tell us something. It seems the people are meant to blindly believe what is pumped out; have faith if you will, as if it’s some new form of religion for those still lost in the lies, “whatever we say, it’s Truth; whatever they say, it’s Lies, no need to look for yourself.” Mainstream media has completely crossed into new territory due to this election that clearly shook the establishment. It now seems to be grasping at whatever will give it an edge over the quickly rising alternative media that has stolen the people’s attention and their trust, which includes but is not limited to, outright fabrications.
In this episode we are further discussing President-Elect Donald Trump, with the new segment “Trump News,” both scrutinizing him when he missteps and praising him when he stays true to his promises, like any rational person should. We also breakdown the Dakota Access Pipeline and why those only watching mainstream media are being manipulated. And most importantly, the rising “Media War” between alt media and MSM, a war on “fake news” as its being called, which includes the ongoing #Pizzagate story and how it is being intentionally censored by the very officials meant to be protecting the people from such deviant actions.
We advocate that everyone take charge of their own political education and actively do their own research and investigation. The power to enact change is meant to be in the hands of the people, but unless we begin paying attention, asking questions and getting involved, this country will remain the same at best, and at worst … further fall into the hands of those who care not for the people, but only for their own ambition.
