The US Media True Enemy of America Part II

In a world of multi-national companies with an endless paper trail of subsidiaries that originate from different cultures and political philosophies so we find the US media, not necessarily aligned with American interests. Over the last few decades mergers between industries and the portfolios they find themselves a part of do not and will not always see eye to eye with interests of the United States. Globalism is a double edged sword that does not necessarily benefit US politics or prosperity. The acquisitions of US broadcasting companies has played a part in shaping public opinion and has even influenced US elections.

No equal voice

For decades the US media operated with little representation from conservative voice. There was no organized conservative cause. The right wing conspiracy always named by Hillary Clinton as her nemesis did not exist! But for a few stand out intellectuals like William F. Buckley, Milton Friedman, and Ronald Reagan the American mainstream media operated with impunity! The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) had done its job vetting the kind of voices and ideologies they wanted verbalizing their political slant and influencing the American public in the direction they wanted as well.

A weaponized media

The year is 1968 and in the aftermath of the Tet Offensive in Vietnam a ruthless attempt to catch the US military and South Vietnam forces off guard during a traditional New Year’s celebration fails! A massive insurgency that did achieve the occupation of the US embassy in Saigon lasts only a few hours. Major battles to take prime targets fail. The North Vietnamese regulars slated to storm US positions once the Vietcong had created enough havoc and disruption in lines of communications while attempting to sabotage USAF bases and other infrastructure collapses as American troops retaliate. The anticipated public support by the South Vietnam people never takes hold as most of them have now realized the US is not the enemy and they benefit from the economy that it has created.

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory

Virtually all Vietcong presence in South Vietnam has been crushed as thousands are killed and captured while the North Vietnam regular army suffers massive defeats at the hands US Marine Units and US Army Helicopter Cavalry response in weeks to come. The South Vietnam War is at a crossroads. The enemy is practically wiped out, but a psychological victory ensues because thanks to the US media who has broadcast negatively about the war and shown nothing but casualties throughout the conflict public support is low. When Walter Cronkite announces that the war is lost the reality of the true events pales in comparison. Even a Pentagon general acknowledges that because Cronkite is so trusted that if he opines on the air that the war can’t be won then as far as the public’s concerned it can’t.

 

More than one enemy

Thanks to the news media and exactly how the Communists under Ho Chi Minh had planned American journalism had played right into their hands. The US media had literally won the war for them. Especially with Hollywood and Jane Fonda doing their best to demonize American leadership and it’s baby killing soldiers, a war that could have been won and a US allied that could have been saved will be ground down into an eventual defeat and the much media avowed narrative of lambasting the “Domino Theory” comes true as Cambodia is soon to follow South Vietnam crumbling under the Khmer Rouge and the infamous killing fields. The US media not only changed the public’s perception of the war but even the outcome. One defense strategist commented that had the US media been allowed to cover World War II the same way we would have lost to the Nazi’s and Japanese!

Media caused chaos

1966 on the Kent State Campus as anti-Vietnam war protests ravaged the grounds of colleges all over the US a plan was unleashed there by the media reporters covering the local events. When protesters couldn’t figure out how to ignite a college building on campus media employees readily showed them how it was done and from then on there were fires on the Kent State campus necessitating the presence of the National Guard! In the days to come a final confrontation ensued and when violent demonstrators threatened the young our numbered guardsmen they were ordered to form a defensive perimeter! A shot was fired followed by a volley of rifle fire and two people were fatally wounded! Who fired the shot? Many believed it was never fired by a National Guard but by a campus agitator in anticipation of the opportunity for the spotlight. Of course, the iconic photo of the terrified female college student squatting next to the bleeding body of a fellow student was born for the anti-war movement!

Orchestrating violence

1979 at the US Embassy in Iran thanks to the overthrow of the Shah and the arrival of the once exiled Muslim cleric Ayatollah Khomeini more than a fifty US diplomatic personnel are captured and held for ransom by the new radical Islamic faction. Young Iranians who are not militant but gathered at the embassy gates are exhorted by US newsmen who are caught on camera urging the crowd into violence and angry outrage! Death and mayhem are always great for ratings! It would be more than a year and not until President Jimmy Carter stepped down after a miserably botched rescue attempt by the US Army that Ronald Reagan, feared by the Iranians, takes office. Quickly, the Khomeini Regime decided to turn over the US hostages. While some claim this was merely a way to smear Jimmy Carter, insiders knew that Reagan’s messages to the Iranians promising a swift reprisal if there was no release had motivated the reprieve.

Wicked tendencies

Refusal by the US media to report events that were politically not aligned with their liberal agenda is just as much a pivotal factor as merely spinning the news reports in whatever way the media saw fit to do. Just as the liberal media have accused conservatives of being heavily supported by the money of big business and industry conservatives have accused the leftist media of allowing its own supportive opinions about gun control, abortion, Gay lifestyle, and socialism to be repeated and hammered into the consciousness of an unsuspecting public relying on them for information too. When well-known media moguls have made arrogant public statements about how they influence government policy and how their perspective will be reported not necessarily the objective role that news should play. One should know there’s a problem.

Human shields

The US media while demonizing President George Bush’s administration acted as guard dogs for President Obama after his election either trying to ignore the damaging news that would cost them public opinion and endlessly minimizing outright criminal acts being committed by the Democrat party that now had a majority in both houses. Such scandals as Fast and Furious would never have been reported if not for inside whistleblowers. After the Benghazi disaster where the US media ran a story of how the nice Libyan people helped Ambassador Stevens to the hospital but he died of smoke inhalation was proven a lie when foreign journalists there at the scene reported and filmed Christopher Stevens being beaten, kicked, raped, and dragged across the streets of Benghazi! After lying to the American public that the Benghazi attack had been a demonstration that had gotten out of hand over Muslims having been offended by an obscure film that almost no one had ever seen President Obama sent Susan Rice on a mission to news talk shows to further spread the lies of the administration with ABC, CBS, and NBC more than happy to air the deception. Of course, according to CNN and MSNBC scandals such as the IRS debacle, Solyndra, the VA scam, and so many more were given sparing coverage.

Vilifying the good

In the present despite huge progress made by President Trump in economic growth, highest levels of employment in decades, tax cuts for Americans, an end to the nuclear threats and missile launches by North Korea the US media had perpetrated a frothing at the mouth rabid campaign of hatred that completely contradicts the revitalization of the country thanks to a savvy that Washington politicians long ago forgot along with them putting the American people first instead of last. For all his tireless efforts in upholding federal law to enforce national security, get US allies to pay their fair share of NATO funding, to offer strength in the eyes of our enemies rather than the limp wristed policies of President Trump’s predecessor the US media has rightfully earned the label of “Enemy of America”. In the words of Laura Ingraham, conservative radio and TV journalist who implored her colleagues on the left during the 2016 election campaign as they literally snarled at her, “Do your job!” In other words-report and keep your opinion to yourself!

Part III will take us further into the perpetual lies of the US media

We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital. If you want to preserve [...] democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press. And without it, [...] we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. ~ John McCain

What balderdash. There were/are so many conservative newspapers and media outlets it is ridicules, though I have to admit Doc, you seem more like a John Birch Newsletter guy than even a Fox Lover. Explain Buckley's opposition to the Civil Rights Act, please ...

Also, with your multi national tin foil conspiracy hat on, explain why the Rothschilds, ooops, I mean the Aussies, own Fox?

Hey Gramps there you go again with that sixties accusatory rhetoric of yours! John Birch, really? How fucking archaic! You don't even fucking know how the society got started and for what reason.

Maui, I used to watch William F. Buckley on KERA TV all the time stoned! and Guess what? They guy had a brain like a bear trap he was smarter than half the damn Socialist chickenshit treasonous Democrat Party and he didn't even have to try that hard! Tore Saul Alinsky's dumb ass up in debates! Why? Because the left has no answers, no prosperity, no dignity, no integrity, all they have is hatred and false narratives because without lies they would cease to exist! Higher taxes? More regulations that kill jobs? States like California allowing people to shit on the streets leave needles on the grass of the playing fields allow millions of unlicensed drivers and illegal alien criminals roam their battle torn sanctuary cities while taking police ability to enforce the law away from them? What kind of fucking madness is that? Of course the Democrats have to lie and lie and lie YOU CANT SELL SHIT at the market place with lies to wrap it with! Socialism, statism collectivism Communism doesn't work! Will never work! And all the bullshit social justice lies that come with it! That's what the founders established the Bill of Rights for so that people would not be ruled by a tyrannical government because unlike any society in history before their time the people were important UNDER THE LAW! Just wait and see what Project Veritas and Q anon have instore for the Democrats once the FISA documents get unredacted all the lies will be exposed and a lot of Deep State Fucks will be going down! Watch! I already told you Trump would win! Listen up again.

Your propaganda fails you Doc, but, it is meant to so that is no big deal. You are right, Communism never works in groups larger than fifty or so people, it is just against human nature and the commune falls apart into factions or some dickhead tries to become the charismatic leader. Now, Socialism is working just fine in Western Europe where, despite they fact that they should not be able to, their quality of life is starting to catch up and even pass ours by. All the Repukes and their fake Libertarian Ayn Rand BS fault. As far as Socialism, well, Social Security is keeping this country going, and I must have been wrong because you look like you are old enough to collect but I guess it is a few more years before I GUARANTEE you start taking your checks. If you are such a purist send them back to the Treasury when you become eligible. Socialism doesn't work ... hahahahahahahahahahaha, what a blind pilot you are.

Oh, and California must be a shitty place to be the sixth largest economy in the world. It is really strange why so many people want to live, and surf, there. I met Buckley in person, he was quite an unattractive man physically, and his outsize ego made his personality a drag too, but, you were just a tyke at the time. Again, FUCK FIRING LINE, tell us exactly why Mr. Bill was against Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts, please.

Maui, do you know how the John Birch Society began? Under the creation of Robert Welch, and in memory of John Birch, a Christian Missionary working in China at the time of the Japanese occupation of China he cared for many starving and orphaned Chinese people. It was John Birch who discovered a B-25 crew of Jimmy Doolittle's command who were hiding out from the infuriated Japs who were killing thousands of Chinese in retaliation form aiding and abetting the American fliers who had crashed due to being low on fuel after the Doolittle raid on the Japanese mainland. Birch got them to safety, in 1945 at the end of the war the Communists under Mao murdered John Birch as they went on to fight Chiang Kai Chek's Nationalist Party and doom China to decades of Communist rule.

Everyone knows how they appropriated the name to try and make themselves look anti-commie, that is the biggest NON-SECRET ever NOT HIDDEN. What the fuck do you know about the Candy Man Welch, and his cronies the Kochs? They hid behind their Birch hero in order to fuck over everyone in sight, spill chemicals all over your great state of Tejas, and oppose Civil Rights and Voting Rights while promoting false Domino Theory, an evil joke that allowed Suharto to kill indiscriminately like Mao did. So, you have two groups of hating assholes, your Birchers and the Little Red Book crowd.

Comment by Maui Surfer on September 19, 2018 at 10:29am

BTW Vega, what the fuck is wrong with Christians (Viet Nams biggest problems started by Diem) going to Nam, China and Korea and fucking with Budhists heads, then wondering why they get shot to shit for it? But, Dog forbid a Muslim comes to the KKKristian USA and tries to simply be themselves and not convert everyone in sight. I would tell you to move to Utah, but even the BYU crowd is better than that, and they are really aggressive missionary scum, but at least they hand out jobs and pay their converts who prior had no money so don't feel bad about faking allegiance to make a buck here and there.

Maui, let's take a look at the EU and just see how well Democratic socialism has worked for them since 2008 these following countries under the EU have been bailed out and that's not even going to solve their chronic economic woes Ireland, Portugal, Cypress, Spain, Latvia, Romania, and Greece! Oh and here's their brilliant scheme called a "Bail in" their banks will simply steal 20% of the wealthy depositor's money from their accounts! Yep, socialism is working so well.
