The Democrats and the Presstitutes Will Not Admit a Trump Win, by Paul Craig Roberts

This looks like it may turn into the most corrupt election ever. From Paul Craig Roberts at thealtworld.com:

If Trump wins the election, unless it is an overwhelming victory that cannot be challenged, the Democrats and the American media will not admit that Trump won.  The plan in place is to blame Trump’s win on fraud and to use the tactics of the “Maidan Revolution” in Ukraine, recently employed again in Belarus, to prevent Trump’s inauguration.

The documentary, The Plot Against the President, explains the “Russiagate” plot by the FBI, the Democrats, and the media to remove President Trump from office. The venality and corruption of FBI Director Comey, the American media, and Democrats, such as Adam Schiff, is scary.  That such an obvious plot against American democracy involving the country’s security agencies and one of the two ruling political parties could go on for three years without a single question by the media proves that the Establishment will not tolerate a non-establishment President or those who support him and that the media dares not cross the Establishment.

The fact that Comey is not in prison testifies to the power of the Deep State.

Had it not been for US Rep. Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee the coup would have succeeded.

The Damage Russiagate Has Done, by Patrick Lawrence

All anybody (if they’re a Democrat) has to do to escape accountability and justice for very serious crimes is to shout “Russia!” From Patrick Lawrence at consortiumnews.com:

An inhabitant of Twitterland named “Willow Inski” took to the keyboard on Oct. 11, asking why anyone still accepts official accounts of the crucial theft of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign manager John Podesta in the spring of 2016.

Excellently observed, Willow. And at just the right moment. At this point we are amid a frenzy of what Hannah Arendt called “defactualization” in a 1971 essay she titled “Lying in Politics.” Facts are fragile, Arendt astutely observed, because they can so easily be manipulated to produce a desired image. “It is this fragility,” she wrote, “that makes deception so very easy up to a point, and so tempting.”

The latest example of this phenom concerns the emails of Hunter Biden, candidate Joe’s errant son, which persuasively incriminate both in very profitable influence-peddling schemes when Papa was Barack Obama’s veep.

How hysterical punditry failed America, by Michael Tracey

The mainstream media keeps setting new highs in hysteria and ridiculousness. From Michael Tracey at unherd.com:

It seems like only yesterday that America’s leading organs of elite consensus were engulfed by a full-fledged panic that the country was on the cusp of all-out Civil War. The means by which this prophesied conflict would be instigated — much less fought — were never made exactly clear, but that wasn’t the point. After all, logistical or operational specifics are immaterial when it’s already been ordained that something unimaginably, harrowingly catastrophic is just around the corner.

“This is not a drill. The Reichstag is burning,” blared a five-alarm-fire warning in the Washington Post by Dana Milbank, who may want to consider a title change from “columnist” to “in-house hysteric”. Not to be outdone, establishment weather-vane Thomas Friedman joined the fray in the New York Times with an equally shocking exhortation: “I can’t say this any more clearly,” he hyperventilated. “Our democracy is in terrible danger — more danger than it has been since the Civil War, more danger than after Pearl Harbor, more danger than during the Cuban missile crisis […]”.

If these fevered prognostications even bore the faintest resemblance to political conditions in the United States, it might seem a bit odd that the pundits in question have since moved on to other subjects. Or to put it this way: if they really believed their own fantastical rhetoric, shouldn’t they have spent the past few weeks taking action more tangible than rattling off a few throwaway columns and browsing Twitter? Not that any “resistance” brigade composed of pallid middle-aged journalists would be especially formidable on the battlefield, but the point is that their conduct doesn’t come anywhere close to matching the incredible alarmism of their words.

Imagine If MSM Consistently Applied The Evidentiary Standards It’s Applying To Hunter Biden’s Emails, by Caitlin Johnstone

The mainstream media and the social media giants have been far less circumspect about other stories than they have been about the Hunter Biden Ukraine and now China scandals. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:

Mainstream media and social media platforms are actively blacking out an October surprise published by The New York Post which purports to show “smoking gun” emails from the laptop of Hunter Biden, son of Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Both Twitter and Facebook have censored the story on their platforms, the first time we’ve seen the powerful social media giants deplatform a mainstream news media article, both citing concerns about the origins of the emails and an uncertainty about the veracity of the claims.

“Facebook was limiting distribution of the story while its outside fact-checkers reviewed the story’s claims, spokesman Andy Stone said,” reports NPR, adding that “Twitter said it decided to block the story because it couldn’t be sure about the origins of the emails.”

Twitter claims it found the emails to be in violation of its policies banning content which contained private information and its rules against “hacked materials”, both of which would have forbidden all articles sharing the contents of the 2016 WikiLeaks drops if those rules had existed back then. As I warned could happen back in August, these rules have set the stage for the cross-platform censorship of a 2020 October surprise.

Shots have been Fired, by tr4head

A litany of charges, most of which are merited, against the mainstream media. From tr4head at theburningplatform.com:

The battle lines are drawn.  And, it’s no longer a battle of words, symbolism or politics.

The Mainstream media (MSM) has enlisted drones (aka Mercenaries) to take on the people they despise – Trump and ALL of his supporters.  They have upped the ante now with shots that may be ringing like Fort Sumter.   A Conservative “Trump Supporter” has now been murdered in the streets by a hit man of the MSM with a bullet through the head. Will we cower or fight back?

I have noted in several blogs that the real enemy of America is not the Elitists in Universities, Democrats, Black Lives Matter or even Antifa.  All of these people have one commander in chief who calls the shots – the American Mainstream Media.

The Media Is Now Openly Pushing Secession as the Election Nears, by Ryan McMaken

Good, secession is now going mainstream. From Ryan McMaken at mises.org:

It’s becoming increasingly clear to even mainstream media outlets that things are unlikely to return to “normal” after the 2020 election.

No matter who wins, it is likely the losing side will regard the winning side as having obtained its win using dirty tricks, foreign meddling, or through relentless propaganda offered up by a heavily biased and one-sided news media.

And if about half the country regards the winning president as illegitimate, where does one go from there?

The survey data isn’t exactly calming on this issue. As reported by Politico last week, the percentage of Americans who believe it is justified to use violence to “advance political goals” has quadrupled since 2017, for both Republicans and Democrats.

After all, political invective has reached a fever pitch since Hillary Clinton declared that a sizable portion of the United States population constituted a “basket of deplorables.” Perhaps not since the 1870s and 1880s—when Catholics, Southerners, and Irish (all core constituents of the Democratic Party) were denounced by Republicans as spies, traitors, and drunks—has half the country so despised the other half. As early as 2017, when asked of the chances of another civil war in the United States,  about one-third of foreign policy scholars polled said it was likely.

Perhaps, then, it is not shocking that we are now seeing articles even in mainstream publications suggesting that maybe, just maybe, the United States can’t continue in its present form. Moreover, the view is now increasingly being promoted by writers and ideologues outside the usual conservative and libertarian groups that have long advocated in favor of decentralization and local control.

The Corporate Media’s Shameful Ignoring of Riots and Looting, by Neil Patel

If some group with a “right-wing” label started a riot, it would be the story 24/7 for at least a month in the mainstream media. Left-wing riots? Move along here, nothing to see. From Neil Patel at dailysignal.com:

The downtowns of numerous American cities have been burned up. Government buildings have been attacked. Private businesses have been destroyed. And people have even been killed. This has been happening off and on now for many months. And—perhaps most amazing and horrifying of all—the news media has decided to largely ignore it.

Detailed coverage would undercut the “mostly peaceful” narrative that many want to cling to. When things get really out of control, the corporate media is forced to report on them in summary fashion, but they have largely abandoned the day-to-day, on-the-ground reporting they would do in virtually any other circumstance. Reporting of that sort is coming from a relatively small number of independent publishers, none more than my own publication, the Daily Caller.

The Daily Caller has sent reporters to every hot spot in America, from Washington, D.C., to Seattle, to Portland, Oregon, and Kenosha, Wisconsin. The fact that this medium-sized news outlet has more gruesome footage of what’s really going on in our streets than huge corporate media outlets should scare the hell out of you.

The corporate media’s choice to largely ignore this coverage is, in essence, a decision to distort reality. In the face of this vacuum, we have been filling the void.

Our reporters are in the middle of many dangerous riots, and they are there with only one goal: Tell the truth about what they are seeing.

They have told stories of peaceful protesters trying to confront the radical and violent elements. They have told stories of brutal attacks by rioters against police just trying to keep the peace. They have told stories of times when police response seemed too aggressive. They have told stories of organized radical attacks against government buildings. They have told stories of protesters attacking journalists. They have also told stories of right-wing vigilantes attacking innocent people.

Under the Media’s Berlin Wall of Truth Suppression, by Frank Miele

You are absolutely never going to know what’s going on if you ignore the alternative media. Tucker Carlson may be the only figure in the mainstream media who will give you the straight story, and his ratings reflect that. From Frank Miele at realclearpolitics.com:

Under the Media's Berlin Wall of Truth Suppression

“So are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder? How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?” (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)

You would think that with the miracle of modern technology and the insistence on transparency in government affairs, it would be possible for both the American people and the American president to share the same baseline on certain important facts.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t take account of the role of the mainstream media as the self-appointed protectors of the people. The press can promote any agenda they choose and destroy any person who gets out of line. Needless to say, Donald Trump gets “out of line” every day — he marches to the beat of his own drummer, as Thoreau said, and the press can’t stand it. So they engage in a near constant attack to destroy him and his presidency.

Jeffrey Goldberg’s reliance on unverified anonymous sources for his Atlantic hit piece accusing the president of being disdainful of slain American soldiers by calling them “losers” and “suckers” is a typical tactic. The media exploit and exacerbate public misperceptions of Trump that they themselves planted in the first place. Did Trump call John McCain a loser? Undoubtedly. Has he ridiculed the generals who have gotten us into forever wars that have cost the lives of thousands of American soldiers? Yes, frequently. But is there any evidence he said the things Goldberg alleges? Yeah, the testimony of five sources so brave they won’t go on the record with their complaints — claims that have been refuted by 19 real people with real names who were actually with the president in France when the alleged incidents occurred.

What Hath White Liberals Wrought? by Paul Craig Roberts

The mainstream media has reached a point of depraved corruption that it won’t even report black on white crimes. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:

A black walked up to a police car in which two Los Angeles County deputy sheriffs were sitting and shot both multiple times.  Both officers are in intensive care fighting for their lives.  Black Lives Matter, called “protesters” by the presstitute media, blocked entries and exists to the hospital chanting “we hope they die.”  https://www.rt.com/usa/500601-trump-death-penalty-shooting/

A black female onboard an airliner refused to cooperate with a white female flight attendant, telling the white female that her “white privilege was over” and “you don’t run America no more,” and that she “slaps the shit out of white bitches” that disrespect her.  So to a black, cooperating with a flight attendant would be submitting to “white privilege.”  Nothing happend to the privileged black.  If she had been white, she would have been removed from the flight. https://www.zerohedge.com/political/watch-what-white-privilege-looks-according-some?utm_campaign=&utm_content=ZeroHedge%3A+The+Durden+Dispatch&utm_medium=email&utm_source=zh_newsletter

Mass shooting by Black Lives Matter foiled by Police.  A black male armed with 9 weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition targeted white customers in a Bass Pro Shop but was foiled.

Black male throws 5-year old white boy off second story atrium at shopping center.  You have to read about this in the British press as the American presstitutes hide all evidence of black violence against white Americans.  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6924993/Complaint-Man-went-Mall-American-intending-kill.html

For years, journalists cheered Assange’s abuse. Now they’ve paved his path to a US gulag, by Jonathan Cook

The media that is parroting the American and British governments’ line on Julian Assange is slitting its own throat. From Jonathan Cook at jonathan-cook.net:

Court hearings in Britain over the US administration’s extradition case against Julian Assange begin in earnest next week. The decade-long saga that brought us to this point should appall anyone who cares about our increasingly fragile freedoms.

A journalist and publisher has been deprived of his liberty for 10 years. According to UN experts, he has been arbitrarily detained and tortured for much of that time through intense physical confinement and endless psychological pressure. He has been bugged and spied on by the CIA during his time in political asylum, in Ecuador’s London embassy, in ways that violated his most fundamental legal rights. The judge overseeing his hearings has a serious conflict of interest – with her family embedded in the UK security services – that she did not declare and which should have required her to recuse herself from the case.

All indications are that Assange will be extradited to the US to face a rigged grand jury trial meant to ensure he sees out his days in a maximum-security prison, serving a sentence of up to 175 years.

None of this happened in some Third-World, tinpot dictatorship. It happened right under our noses, in a major western capital, and in a state that claims to protect the rights of a free press. It happened not in the blink of an eye but in slow motion – day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.
