This is the last election that will ever feature the lapdog media in any significant role. By next election online media will have entirely taken over.
The only reason the lapdog media still have any audience at all is that there are older people who have not adapted to the death of the journalist as a relevant tradesperson in our society.
It’s the equivalent of the 1910s – there are still horses and carts, but they’re on the way out, permanently.
Unlike the end of the age of the horse, the end of the age of the journalist is being hurried along by their own venality, corruption and incompetence. It’s the information age equivalent of the end of the corrupt pardoners and priests in the middle ages.
The wretched journalists will of course be the last ones to admit it.
Then we have the phenomenon where monolithic social media such as twitter and facebook make no attempt to disguise the fact that they simply want to replace the lapdog media and become the new slave owners. Unfortunately for them in times of revolution entire concepts are revised or thrown out. It isn’t simply a case of swapping bosses.
Of course, there are significant numbers of people who are lazy, moronic or badly educated -or all three. They will form the natural slave class to sustain control systems as they always have. But against that is the fact that “journalism” is dead. There is simply no need for propaganda organs when people can communicate directly.
The next phase of the attempt by the would-be elites to control everyone else will require paid bloggers, shills and trolls. In fact it has already become standard for such things to be done. Experiments in this regard have been carried out for decades, using fringe groups such as UFOlogy.
One asks, Why should such disparate groups as the Soviet Union and the US intelligence community back the same man? I am no political theoretician, but Nicholas one time said, ‘They both like figureheads who are corrupt. So they can govern from behind. The Soviets and the fuzz, they’re all for shadow governments. They always will be, because basically each of them is the man with the gun. The pistol to the head.’
No one had put a pistol to Ferris Fremont’s head. He, was the pistol itself, pointed at our head. Pointed at the people who had elected him. Behind him stood all the cops in the world, the left-wing cops in Russia, the right-wing cops in the United States. Cops are cops. There are only divisions of rank, into greater and lesser. The top cop is probably never seen.
However, Nicholas was no political theoretician either. In point of fact he had no idea how the coalition behind Fremont had formed; in fact he had no idea it existed. Like the rest of us over those years, he simply stood amazed as prominent politicians were murdered and Fremont rose rapidly to power. What was happening made no sense. No pattern could be discerned.
There is a Latin motto, when one is seeking to know who has committed a crime, that goes, Look to see who gains. When John Kennedy was murdered, and Dr King, and Bobby Kennedy, and the others, when George Wallace was crippled, we should have asked, Who gains? All men in America lost by these dreadful senseless murders except one second-rate man whose way was now clear to the White House: clear to get in and clear to remain. Who otherwise would have had no chance.
We should forgive ourselves, though, for not figuring out who was doing it and why; after all, it had never happened in the United States before, although the history of other countries is full of it. The Russians know it well; so do the English – take Crookback Dick, as Shakespeare calls Richard III. There was the paradigm for this: Richard, who murdered his way to the throne, killing even children, and all with the excuse that nature had made him ugly. Nature had made Ferris Fremont ugly too, inside and out. Personally, it never entered my mind. We thought of a lot of possibilities, but not really that. The Tartar mind had never schemed for the American throne until then.

other than his skipping over the kakistocrat murderer LBJ’s involvement #PKD lays it out pretty well. PKD fell for the red-blue puppet show as so many others did. Nothing Nixon did or was is in any way different to LBJ.
The final year of president lightworker o’clusterf_ck is going to be one for the ages.
A dizzying combination of
1. laundry list of how the oppressed subjects have failed him
2. the first tiny inklings from rebel “journalists” that maybe just maybe everything about him is a lie and he’s an affirmative action hire
3. unconstitutional governing on a scale stalin only dreamed of
4. the lapdog media doubling down to maintain the lie ie their “narrative” – as they always do
5. terrorist attacks
6. “syrian” “refugees” bringing the Sweden / UK style rape and violence epidemic to the heartland
7. mysterious deaths around the clinton crime family – it’s what they do – for example wouldn’t want to be a private secrethttp://acecomments.mu.nu/?post=360758ary, email manager or financial arranger for the witch or her vile daughter
8. the nadir of American potency in foreign policy – the Popeye “I can’t stands no more!” moment is coming for the freeborn American people.
9. ISIS triumphant
10. Trump assassination attempt. He’s bucked the status quo and he isn’t quitting – the status quo will buck him back in exactly the same way JFK and RFK were hit – CIA, LBJ, Malcolm Wallace; Thane Eugene Cesar for RFK, etc. I still think the most likely patsy for the hit is Bergdahl or someone like him. Bergdahl is a “returned defector program” alumnus and they are usually the ones used.
Rush Limbaugh has now even joined the “lapdog media are lying scum” camp although he doesn’t connect the dots as to who those whores lie for:
Anyway, the announcement finally came, and I looked at Kathryn, I said, “Listen to all these people on TV. They’re just vamping and filling time and they’re just trying to flap their gums until the real news is made.” The whole thing, to me, made me feel like I was watching a scripted event. Now, one of the allures supposedly of reality TV is that it’s real, that there isn’t a script. That’s why audiences really like it, like The Real Housewives of whatever, or whatever reality TV show. But let me tell you, there is no such thing as improvisation or reality TV. It’s all scripted.
He’s a warrior for the republican cause, so is still trapped in the false paradigm of the illusion of choice – red-blue puppet show, left-right dichotomy… But he nails this one.
The political-bureaucrat-media class is the enemy of the anglosphere.
Once upon a time there was this country. It was the greatest country in recorded history. Like ancient Rome, it became a republic when it defeated its own king and threw him out of its land, never to return. This incredible country vowed that there would never again suffer a tyrant, let alone an usurper or a king. Some of this country’s states even had state mottos to this effect.
I keep wondering lately, whatever happened to that awe inspiring place. When I see or hear barry soetoro, I keep imagining what would have happened to such a grifter had he and those behind him ever tried to steal control of that amazing powerhouse nation.
