I wish it was just a bullying tactic but I am afraid that this out right oppression, you can deal with a bully, because majority rule, but when is a power using oppression that is close to what dictators do, you know we are in big trouble, we have a constitution that very soon could not apply to executive decisions , in history we have learned that oppressing the free media is how governments become dictatorships, but the new dictators will not be one sovereign supreme leader anymore, but look what is happening in the US, for the last few decades the two ruling party in the nation with their recycle trash politicians has taken over any opposition, you either have dumb or dumber and as long as people get a choice of two clowns they think is democracy at its finest.

Not so, both parties are catering to each other, the laws that one party enact open the door for more take over and bigger government from the next.

Is a trend and people are too busy fighting over stupidity this days about who is better party than who to even taking notice it.


Yes, I understand how you feel. The fake two party system is the reason that we here in the USA, as well as other nations, are where we are now. They just continue to play all the herds against each other over a few political domestic issues, while both parties continue the foreign policies of the masters of puppets.

The foreign policy agenda is about the battle of resources. ~$heopleNation

In all fairness, there are a number of fascists who wanted to make sure he could not work with congress on anything at all.

Once again, not sticking up for Obama, just looking at things objectively. If he is genuine about his wanting to bring the working class out of poverty and level the playing field, it makes sense that much of the ruling class would try to stop him from keeping his word on anything. They want to make him out to be a bad president.

Not saying Obama isn't just another sell out, though. He sold out on a number of issues. However, the Republicans who constantly attack him and try to stop him from making any kind of progress are even worse than he is.

This can be taken both ways. But seriously there is more news coverage on celebrities and some local heroes. But when it comes to world news that really matters it seems the most we get is a ticker placement. Meaning the real news is printed on the screen thanks to the teleprompter's fast fingers. Sometimes they throw in a joke every now and then but it is true. We get a vague statement and that's it.

My experience as a cab driver, taking various professionals around town, say that our news is a circus show. BBC outranks the US for any news at all.

Trickle down is not just an economic theory to make sure the middle class and the poor are always walking on thin ice and under the complete control of rich people.

It also seems to extend to our news networks. We get about as much real news as we get a slice of the pie for our work.

The communist police state has become first priority.

It would seem Obama is more worried about the 2014 mid elections then I had thought.

The FCC has cooked up a plan to place "researchers" in U.S. newsrooms, supposedly to learn all about how editorial decisions are made.


This is not a bad idea, in theory.

All you have to do is replace the self regulated FCC with an independent panel, and replace the 'researchers' with regulators. That way snakes likes Murdoch could not manipulate policy to suit them.

But that will never happen unless we all revert to Ham Radios and local newspapers, which would be an improvement over the way the news is delivered to us now, excluding the minority of good journos out there of course.

If you people want a federal government program spying and controlling news you have lost your minds.The politicians will lie and abuse it next.
They could put labels of news shows telling you it is strictly opinion hour or real news hour.

What is this a freakin propaganda campaign or something? The MSM has been owned by the ruling class, many of who are trying to push the world in the direction of a NWO, for a long time.

No one had it wrong. It can't get worse. No where to go but up or where we are already at.

Remember the role of congress, in history the people use the checks and balances when they are no satisfied with what the standing president is doing, that is why majority in the two houses fluctuate during mid term elections.

Is not that congress is no supporting the president but rather the will of the people what prevails, that is the way is been and should be since the beginning of the nations government.

But believe it or not since the last few administrations the job of congress is not longer what the people wants but rather what the corporate interest invested in them wants that is why the executive decisions are becoming the trend and that is actually viewed as bypassing the congress and the people's will.

The big conglomerates or corporate media is not the ones that are under attack, but the free media and the small local state media.

Sadly, and more importantly, this attacks us readers.

This is not ok.

I remember reading about this sort of thing in history class when I was young, but it was not OUR country they were talking about.

It hasn't been the last few administrations. It has been that way for over 3 or 4 decades at the very least.

A redundancy, as government is also owned by the same interests. Just colorful icing on an inedible cake. If anyone doubts our right to information is controlled there are thousands of facts to back that up.



Most media organisations are owned by multi-national multi-billion dollar corporations that are involved in a number of businesses apart from the media, such as forestry, pulp and paper mills, defence, real estate, oil wells, agriculture, steel production, railways, water and power utilities. Such conglomerates not only create potential conflicts of interest in reporting the news but ensure the makers of the news take a corporate view.


From the site:
Business-Managed Democracy

The media companies themselves are monopolies that are owned buy bigger monopolies. GRAPHIC

6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America. Info Media

Places like ATS are allowed, but if growing too big or influential would be under attack from so many places that overhead costs with lawyers and defending responders would take over operational funds and eventually kill.

The media has been owned by the same people who are poisoning our foods, water, letting infrastructure fail, making bad and too many useless drugs, financing complicit political offices, ignoring climate change, truth and human rights for the profits it all brings. We are ignorant, blind, unhealthy and hopeless and that's precisely where they want us.

All done. Just try and avoid this fact.

It will fail. It is unsustainable and many of them know it, but the corporate beast will take the last drop of profit and kill the host, just like a blood sucking insect. No mind. No soul. No compassion. But they got the U.S. Supreme Court to treat them like a person? Corporations are essentially a structural model for anti-life if done right and big. If whomever (John 2:18, 2:22, 4:3, and 2 John 7) wrote about the antichrist could better articulate their vision, we would likely not see some singular person as this character, we would see very, very big corporations. Fit is perfect. The "Christ" is actually a higher state of awareness. That is the answer to the challenge. Not religion, but understanding and awareness. Let's do that!

You are talking about trickle down economics Reagan, right? Destroyer of the free world Reagan? They guy that paved the way for international bankers to get a death grip on the economy Reagan?


No, You must have some sort of reading comprehension problem, because I made it perfectly clear I was talking about Reagan back in 1964.


As opposed to the guy who actually did get his head blown off by the MIC for trying to enact change after serving on a PT boat in WWII, right after averting a nuclear war?


I think JFK was probably the best President that America has ever had, so wrong again.


Only Republicans pretend to like Reagan, and they do this for acceptance among their peers.


Maybe you form your opinions and beliefs in order to satisfy people who think like you do, but obviously you have made a mistake by assuming that I do so.


Are you a member of the Tea Party?


It's none of your business who I am a member of. Now run along guy, and keep on waiting for your hope and change. LMAO! ~$heopleNation

He is an ineffective amateur. This is clear every time he opens his mouth "folks".

I swear every time he says "folks" I think of Bush...

lmao "My fellow Americans."

"Folks, idk what to tell ya. Your my fellow Americans, and I can't lie. Our armed forces would not survive the application of the Sermon on the Mount."

Psychologically coercive tactics such as these are used by every politician out there. Whenever I see one who doesn't use them, I might be bothered to go vote.

Wow.

Didn't we see this sort of intrusion before in some other regimes?

Apparently Bush isn't the only one that see the US Constitution as "just a piece of paper."

Sad and very frightening. Reminds me of the anecdote about a frog in a pot of water. I wonder how much more the citizenry will allow?
