While going through various sites to see what is going on in the World, I am finding dozens of articles which tell me that the mainstream media is dead.
Now I have been in this game for long enough to know that without some sort of help, it is quite difficult to build up a huge audience. I have chums on-line who tell me the same thing, but we go trudging on anyway.
Yet constantly, in response to a remark about the death of the MSM, I find myself on a site which I have never heard of, which apparently built up an audience of millions of visitors.
Now it is part of my job to know what is going on and I am hunting around all the time, on-line, digging out information and yet millions of casual viewers just happened to have found these sites, in some unknown manner and are getting their daily dose of information from them and a “pro” like me has never come across them. This is apparently the “new” mainstream.
I came across one such site and the “bloggers,” if that is what they were, looking very much like a TV report between two professional studios, were chatting to each other about this very subject. I presumed that they both had some means of visual communication, which was far superior to that which is available to the likes of Max Keiser, for example, who normally relies on Skype, because the video looked professional.
During the course of the chat, between these two members of the new mainstream, one asked the other how many hits they had on a daily basis and the response was in the millions and I had never heard of them.
Being an old curmudgeon, I found this to be just a little bit strange so I went through a few of their articles. What I found was all of the usual names, many of them whom have become ubiquitous on-line, the very names which continually receive prominence on dozens of sites, simply because of their fame.
On my Blog, I write all of my own stuff, so I can fairly claim that although it may not be too interesting, you will not find an article, in the middle of my stuff, written by somebody else, who may be working to an agenda, on my site. Should I do that, in my opinion, I would be guilty of disseminating someone else’s agenda.
All of these sites are telling me that they are presenting the “News” which you will not find anywhere else. This is total rubbish. Hidden in between some sort of alternative version of events, many of the subjects, which to me and many of my colleagues, are no more than total propaganda, are presented by these sites in a manner which suggests, that if sites such as this,are agreeing with the concept, it must be true.
For example, Global Warming or is it Climate Change? Well whatever, to contest the hypotheses is considered to be totally non-politically correct on most sites and one is considered to be a “denier.” A denier of what, the weather?
There is a character in Bristol, an ex BBC man, who is now “alternative.” however he has a band of followers who will cut your throat should you contradict his point of view. His particularity is Hitler and the Nazis, who are even now, in control of everything, including the Bilderberg group.
He is now regularly featured on Russia Today, where his “alternative” view just happens to coincide with the Russian version of events in Ukraine, which suggests that it is controlled by Neo-Nazis, who else?
Russia Today, which has managed to turn itself into the international channel of “the other side of the story” is itself a load of bunkum, you get a whiff of visual news, which is broader in content than the unwatchable BBC, yet on the other hand, they broadcast most subjects, such as Global Warming/Climate Change, in lock step with the rest of them.
A programme on Russia Today “Breaking the Set,” was almost total propaganda, which means disinformation or more simply outright lies. The programme was abruptly cancelled last week and the presenter gave us all a tearful goodbye.
This woman Abby Martin, constantly claimed that she was presenting the News which you would not find discussed anywhere else. This was nonsense. Her News covered all of the well-known chestnuts, which are available “everywhere else”and what is more she supported all of them. Global Warming, Peak Oil, White on Black Crime in the USA, gun control, she even suggested that of all the bad men in history, Hitler was the effing baddest.
She said this while working for those who gave us Stalin, Lenin, Yagoda, Trotsky and Ehrenberg, all of them far more effing bad than Hitler.
Most of the well-known contributors to the burgeoning on-line alternative media, are also frequent guests on Russia Today and Press News. They are presumably aware that Russia Today is not totally disconnected from mainstream opinion on most subjects and on programmes, such as Crosstalk, the flagship discussion show, we have yet to hear any real mention of the Holodomor in Ukraine.
Meanwhile, back in the sludge, George Galloway, “The Voice of the Voiceless,” who has never managed to explain his lack of support for Gadaffi and Libya, when the attack was going on, when it was put to him, on Press TV, that even though he was bad-mouthing him, Gadaffi had actually done more for the people of Libya than had any other Muslim leader, whether King or Dictator, he scathingly dismissed this with a remark that it was the money of the Libyan people, so Gadaffi had done nothing.
He forgot to let us know what the British people had gained from their Great Empire. He might also let me know whether there are at this moment more or fewer, Libyan students in the UK profiting from a free education paid for by the State of Libya. I think he might find that all of that sort of thing has come to an end and no doubt the new British selected regime, will very soon install tuition fees, immediately making a good education in Libya a dream of a lost Golden Past.
Now all of these things are coming over the airwaves from alternative sources, so what is this Alternative Media? YouTube is now totally controlled. I have been sanctioned by YouTube, for using part of a programme from Russia Today, which youtube tell me was objected to. The clip was all over youtube, apparently without problem, so what was wrong with mine, well in my presentation I mentioned the Jew.
If you do you uploads to youtube, the continued use is quite important. Should you have no more than a youtube channel, you can post somewhere else, there are other sites but if you have a blog, you lose all of the links between the blog and youtube and this could involve rather a lot of work to sort out so you have to be careful, that is censorship.
The Debt! This is a favourite subject for the alternative media. I am not an economist or mathematician but I do understand buying and selling and anything which is sold is quite obviously bought, job done. However much bad debt was bundled up and sold, makes no difference.
A lot of money may have changed hands buying and selling rubbish but that is not a debt. The only person who suffers is the last man holding the toxic package, everybody else can breathe a sigh of relief. That is unless some dealer has actually sold the same package to millions of people, which I doubt and even should he have done so, he has the money, so get it out of him.
I am of the opinion that there is no debt and there never has been, so when I hear specialists like Webster Tarpley telling me that there are possibly quadrillion of debt in the form of Derivatives and Credit Default Swaps and what have you hanging around out there, just waiting for some country to default, which will bring the whole house of cards tumbling down, I know that he is talking bullshit. Alternative Media bullshit. Computers could not even measure a debt that size never mind share it out to creditors.
When Iceland checked the figures of their bankrupt banks, they found that the banks had quite deliberately bought, carefully packaged, bad debt, just before announcing themselves to be bankrupt. Ireland found the same thing, so it quickly became obvious that the debt was a fraud, so why have there been no arrests?
A while back I bought my first computer but I had no internet connection, so I was forced to buy a second-hand portable computer, with which I could sit around in McDonald’s and download podcasts.
At that time Alex Jones appeared to be king. Through his rantings I was introduced to the likes of Max Keiser, Gerald Celente, Webster Tarpley, Lindsay Williams and Alan Watt, all of these people and others whom are now no longer with us, presented the alternative view and in the main they are still doing it.
Max Keiser is now working for all of the TV channels including the BBC, as are Celente and Alan Watt and the message they are imparting is becoming ever more vague.
It soon became clear that many of these people, like Ray McGovern had some connection to the CIA. Bob Chapman, the same thing. Webster Tarpley is married to a woman who works for the CIA. Wayne Madsen, another one, The list goes on and on and these people are the very people who are providing all of the “inside” information.
I finally discovered that it was possible to download the podcasts of Alan Watt. Initially he was very interesting, however he quickly ran out of new things to say, which is the problem with this subject, in reality it is very small and one quickly finds oneself repeating over and over basically the same thing, unless you become a “News” provider and that is difficult when you do all of the writing and you have to work on other things at the same time.
So as time has gone on I have gradually lost confidence in just about all of the Alternative Pundits. That is mainly because I have my own fixed ideas and I find it difficult to respond to those who believe in Man Made Global Warming for example, simply because I cannot find anything in support of the claims, they are no more than ideas. Why should this change be for the worst for example, why not for the good? Nobody knows. They simply believe it to be so or they are lying through their teeth.
It is the same thing with “Disclosure,” there are quite suddenly dozens of ex-employees from Area 51 and other secret establishments, crawling out from under carpets telling us that they have seen living “Greys.” They have touched alien space-craft which are living things. You wear the space-craft like a cloak and you fly it with your thoughts. Wonderful stuff, but I do not believe a word of it. So why are alternative boys spending so much time on this as the trappers net is already falling down around us?
The two most annoying things with most, not all of the Alt Media, is their solid support for the idea of “White Crimes” against Black people. Russia Today, Press TV, and many others are reporting from places like Ferguson, or running around mumbling “I Can’t breath,” screaming about “OUR” crimes against Blacks and never “THEIR” crimes against us.
One could be forgiven for believing that very few white criminals are shot by the Police, when in fact records show that even though there is more violent, armed crime, committed by blacks, even by percentage of population, whichever way you check the figures, far more whites are shot and killed, by Police, while carrying out this sort crime.
There are virtually no Black women raped by White men, while 30,000 White women are raped annually by Black men. Why is the Alt Media so reluctant to report this fact?
So all in all, I find that I am being forced to watch the same few faces wherever I choose to watch either Alternative News On-line, or indeed on what is in effect the available TV Alternative News on RT or Press TV.
So in a world where I am being fed lies on all sides I choose to go my own way and my convictions are now creating a resistance to what I am finding hidden in films, for example I started to watch a film about “The Matrix” or so I thought but as usual, a few minutes into the film, it became necessary to remind us all of the barbarity of the Germans and the holocaust. I stopped it instantly because to me that infers that either the character who made the film has not researched his subject or he is topping up our daily dose of Hitler. Either way I want no more to do with him.
To find these tall stories from the past linked to a very modern concept like the Matrix, one would like to assume that the presenter of our new vision of the world, would have at least discovered that those who took control of Russia in 1917, carried out a barbarity far in excess of Hitler, so why has he picked on Hitler as a measure of infamy? Go away please.
Even Max Keiser and Russell Brand are quite happy to keep the Hitler myth rolling along, while the real Masters of Slaughter are even now culling the Muslims in the Middle East, while million are leaving, heading towards our shores and it serves us right.
The 20th Century gave us monumental catalogue of killing, which started long, long before Hitler was even on the scene and has continued all over the planet since he left us, yet he is considered the measure of despotism. What a joke, Hitler and Germany were quite simply victims of a blood crazed group of psychopaths.
Today I was reading an article by Webster Tarpley, in which he accused NATO, of using the same tactics against Syria as had been used by Hitler, during his rape and destruction of Czechoslovakia in 1938.
In the annals of international criminal aggression, the destabilization, dismemberment, and ultimate annihilation of independent Czechoslovakia in 1938 and 1939 by Hitler’s Nazi regime has come to occupy a place of particular infamy.
Tarpley, continued his piece, interspersing events in Syria with little snippets explaining German atrocities in the Sudetenland, ie:
Syrian rebels (was/were) long thought to be located near the NATO air base at Incirlik, Turkey, but the rebels claim that they have now moved it on to conquer the Syrian territory. The “Sudeten Free Corps” ( or, more accurately, “Sudeten Militia”) was created, armed with Austrian weapons, and ordered by Hitler to orchestrate a series of “disturbances and clashes” with the Czech police and army. Soon martial law had to be declared. From this point on, there was a series of bloody battles between Sudeten Nazis and Czechs. Each time one occurred, Hitler would blame it on the Prague government, and deliver hysterical radio speeches and public orations demanding freedom for the Germans subjected to the Czech yoke. This has been the attitude of Western governments and Western media for almost two years in the case of the Syrian fighting.
