We Are Real, We Are Truthseekers, And We Do Not Accept Mainstream Media Fake News!

December 5, 2016 in News by Slad


The essay I am want to share with you is one the most excellent and far-reaching pieces of truth I have ever read.  The writer is Carl Herman.  Carl Herman is a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History; also credentialed in Mathematics. He worked with both US political parties over 18 years and two UN Summits with the citizen’s lobby, RESULTS, for US domestic and foreign policy to end poverty. He can be reached at Carl_Herman@post.harvard.edu
This Harvard professional is brilliant, and he understands the inside of this Country in such an astute way that will electrify those of us who are truthseekers.  He cannot be fooled as he has seen it all.  He does not wear rose-colored glasses, and he demands a clear vision of the current Mainstream Media hoax that is currently being played upon Alternative Media.
He gives examples of the true hoax of Mainstream Media, which has been played on the American people for a very long time.  That is how Alternative Media was born….we had to find our way from the darkness of lies to Light of truth.  The Internet is both a positive and negative entity, but Alternative Media has become the positive force of the Internet.  You will be very glad if you take the time to read this report.
This is a quote that precedes the essay: “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. And then you win.”  ~ unsourced, and attributed to Gandhi’s analysis of British empire response to having their hypocrisy exposed: claiming to bring Christian love and progress while looting resources with forced local labor.
The following is examples of the REAL FAKE NEWS:  CORPORATE MEDIA:

Corporate media fakes us into wars that aren’t even close to lawful, are Orwellian illegal Wars of Aggression (1 of 15)

  • Corporate media fakes us into Orwellian illegal Wars of Aggression with lies known to be lies as they were told (2 of 15)
  • Corporate media fakes us into ongoing bankster looting of increasing total debt impossible to repay, while ignoring solutions worth trillions (3 of 15)
  • Corporate media fakes us into their fake world never admitting to a history of their easily documented lies (4 of 15)
  • Corporate media fakes us into NOT ending poverty for less than 1% of ‘developed’ nations’ income, poverty-murdering ~1 million children every month, since 1997 killing more human beings than all wars & violence in all human history (5 of 15)
  • Corporate media fakes us into Kennedy assassination fairy tales ‘covering’ US .01% coup against an ‘uncooperative President’ (6 of 15)
  • Corporate media fakes us by ignoring King Family civil trial verdict that US government assassinated Martin with OVERWHELMING evidence, pretends to ‘honor’ Martin every January (7 of 15)

  • Corporate media fakes us into ignoring OBVIOUS American response: arrest .01% ‘leaders’ for Wars of Aggression, treason, Crimes Against Humanity, fraud and looting worth tens of trillions (15 of 15)
(We have been lied to so many times by corporate media, we are dangerously living in a world that does not exist.  If we do not seek truth from outside of MSM, we will fail to live a meaningful life.  You cannot base your life upon lies, and this is why we must defend Alternative Media.)

On with the essay:  The Washington Post‘s unsourced “list” places us, Washington’s Blog, as their 7th example of “fake news.” Please take a few moments to read their sensationalistic description of our “Russian propaganda.” Please contrast that “reporting” and this also from The Washington Post, with the actual content of this article series.FisherOfMen’s revealing 14-minute video, beginning with CIA Director Colby’s testimony to the US Senate for the 1975 Church Committee admitting the CIA directs corporate media how to lie to the American public with “fake news” (six similar videos here):

Continuing with the essay: This is powerfully revealing of the “fake news” Americans constantly receive. Following is a reprint of what I think is my most effective walkthrough for average Americans to fully understand this topic, and also from a professional academic paper I wrote and delivered for ~2,000 people at a 2015 Claremont Colleges’ international conference. And again, no colleague or I am aware of any attempt to refute these facts. Our experience is the same as the quote attributed to Gandhi at the start of this essay.

The genesis of oligarchic control of American major media was reported in the US Congressional Record in 1917. US Congressperson Oscar Callaway claimed evidence that J.P. Morgan had purchased editorial control over 25 of the nation’s most influential publications in order to create public support for US entry into World War 1 and his new banking legislative victory: creation of the Federal Reserve system. Mr. Callaway’s colleagues voted down an official investigation. Read this to see how even Abraham Lincoln’s powerful prose to explain and document how US war on Mexico was in obvious treaty violation didn’t have the votes to stop it. And read this to see how ridiculous the spin for US involvement in WW1 was compared to the absence of any threat to national security, followed by the .01%’s violent suppression of political dissent allegedly protected by the 1st Amendment.

Of course, corporate media owns the history textbook publishing companies that “taught” you this history with the lies of omission of Lincoln’s actions to point to the rule of law and what you’ll recognize from WW1 history.

Related history is summarized and documented in this brief article, The news media at war, and Mainstream Media: Presstitutes for the Rich and Powerful.

War pimps and sock puppets:

Importantly, disinformation programs infiltrate the comments of independent writers. Expect classic rhetorical fallacies such as slurs of the author’s character, straw-man arguments, denial of facts, lies of omission of central facts, and other BS (thank you, Professor Frankfurt, for your best-seller to help explain).

The discerning characteristic of all propaganda is non-factual bravado and specious argument in order to maintain manipulative control of an agenda to distract attention from damning facts.

You, the reader, are sharp enough to discern such propaganda. Or if not, you’d better learn if you want to end the killing of millions, harm to billions,  looting of trillions, and US political collapse.

The public will win as Dr. King and Gandhi discovered: through trial and error. What we’ve learned through their process is broad public and political communication of the facts with simultaneous formal policy requests to honor what we’ve already won under the law. When the .01% ignore the law, it helps our cause because more of the 99.99% recognize these .01% are guilty of massive crimes centering in war and money.

Attributed to Gandhi (but unsourced) is today’s pattern we see from political and corporate media “leadership”:

“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. And then you win.”

How Mr. Gandhi and Dr. King saw their civic educational challenge:

“One thing we have endeavoured to observe most scrupulously, namely, never to depart from the strictest facts and, in dealing with the difficult questions that have arisen during the year, we hope that we have used the utmost moderation possible under the circumstances. Our duty is very simple and plain. We want to serve the community, and in our own humble way to serve the Empire. We believe in the righteousness of the cause, which it is our privilege to espouse. We have an abiding faith in the mercy of the Almighty God, and we have firm faith in the British Constitution. That being so, we should fail in our duty if we wrote anything with a view to hurt. Facts we would always place before our readers, whether they are palatable or not, and it is by placing them constantly before the public in their nakedness that the misunderstanding… can be removed.” –  Mohandas K. Gandhi, Indian Opinion (1 October 1903)


“‘A time comes when silence is betrayal.’ That time has come for us…

The truth of these words is beyond doubt but the mission to which they call us is a most difficult one. Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government’s policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought within one’s own bosom and in the surrounding world.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence.”http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/05/seizing-an-alternative-lying-corporate-media-required-propaganda-trying-to-hide-naked-empire-6-of-7.html

IN CONCLUSION:  I hope the sharing of the work of this brilliant man, Carl Herman, will help to enlighten you to the corporate media’s new hoax “fake news”.   Alternative Media is the Truth of We The People, and we have fought too hard to let it go now.  I believe that through God Almighty and the new Republican President, President-Elect Donald Trump, We The People will continue our quest for the truth.  I further pray that the Mainstream Media will continue to lose its popularity with the public.
