“The First Amendment rests on the assumption that the widest possible dissemination of information from diverse and antagonistic sources is essential to the welfare of the public, that a free press is a condition of a free society. Freedom to publish means freedom for all, and not for some. Freedom to publish is guaranteed by the Constitution, but freedom to combine to keep others from publishing is not.”
In 1945, the nearly century long propagandist reign of the Associated Press (AP) that had single handedly manipulated the American public into 38 wars in 99 yearscame to end when the US Supreme Court ruled that their monopolistic business model was unconstitutional.
In 1846 news had become a salable commodity and five daily newspapers in New York City joined to share the cost of transmitting news of the Mexican-American War by boat, horse express and telegraph.
By 1945, AP had become the largest multinational nonprofit news agency in the world (owned by its member newspaper and radio outlets) and prohibited member newspapers from selling or providing news (whether that news was supplied by the AP, or was authored by the member newspaper – called “spontaneous” news) to nonmember organizations as well as making it very difficult for nonmember newspapers to join the them.
By 1965, the benefits to the American people of having been freed from AP’s propaganda led to them to knowing the truth about the Korean War, the Vietnam War, racial segregation, the military-industrial-congressional complex, CIA abuses, governmental abuses against citizens, high level government corruption, so many critical issues in fact that by 1980 these people were, by far, the most informed society the world has ever seen.
Then they elected Ronald Reagan and by 1983, just 50 companies owned 90 percent of the media consumed by Americans, and by 2012, just six companies controlled that 90 percent, according to testimony before the US House Judiciary Committee examining Comcast’s acquisition of NBCUniversal last year.
In the 25 years (1945-1980) between when the US Supreme Court in effect destroyed AP, and when Reagan was elected and began to restore them, it is no coincidence that the US was only involved in two wars…Korea and Vietnam…and although both of these wars were costly (both in lives and money), the American people were able to stop them because they were told the truth.
In the 34 years (1980-2014) since Reagan was elected and the AP was restored, and their owner-members began their massive news/information consolidation, theUnited States has been involved in 11 wars.
All of these wars, mind you, don’t even include the covert wars kept from the American people that were fought by the CIA, and which according to the highest ranking CIA official ever to go public, John Stockwell, had cost the lives of over 6 million people by 1987.
But of the known wars caused by US over the past 168 years (1846-2014) these facts we do know: When the news is controlled by a small group there are wars. On the other hand, when the American people are allowed to know the truth, these wars are stopped, or more importantly not even begun.
The latest example of the American people stopping a war when they know the truth was last year when the US attempted to start World War III by invading Syria. The “official” Obama regime story spread by the AP and its members in support of war was that Syria had attacked their own citizens with poisonous gas causing hundreds to die.
These Obama regime lies were quickly exposed not only by us, but by many other independent news sources, most importantly the highly esteemed Pulitzer Prize winning American writer Seymour Hersh, who just prior to this planned war wrote:
“British intelligence had obtained a sample of the sarin used in the 21 August attack and analysis demonstrated that the gas used didn’t match the batches known to exist in the Syrian army’s chemical weapons arsenal. The message that the case against Syria wouldn’t hold up was quickly relayed to the US joint chiefs of staff. The British report heightened doubts inside the Pentagon; the joint chiefs were already preparing to warn Obama that his plans for a far-reaching bomb and missile attack on Syria’s infrastructure could lead to a wider war in the Middle East.”
Even though not one single mainstream American or British media outlet reported Seymour Hersh’s critically important article telling the truth about what happened, we did…and with enough of you passing these truths along, pretty soon a critical mass of people began to know the truth and this war was stopped.
Now they are at again…and the stakes are even higher!
The Obama regimes “story” this time is that Russia is responsible for the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 over Ukraine. Of course, and just like Syria, there is no proof or evidence being offered, in fact, even though Russia has turned over enough intelligence to prove that the Ukrainian government (along with the CIA) was responsible…not one single mainstream US or British news outlet will report on it.
Now at this point, and as we’ve educated you all as much as possible over the past decade, it’s important to remember what this planned war the Obama regime and its allies want…and most simply put…the total destruction of Russia.
As to why these Western forces want to destroy Russia, it’s most simplistic explanation is that with Moscow rapidly moving away from the US Dollar, if it should succeed the entire fantasy known as the Western global economic system would collapse.
To how soon this war will start can be seen in the propaganda flowing from the Obama regime and its supporters…they want it NOW!
Standing against them is YOU…but ONLY if you continue to support those like us who keep telling you the truth.
Last year we both PROVED the power of the truth in stopping the lies of war. But if you hadn’t supported us before that it couldn’t have happened!
So here we are all again…YOU needing the truth to prevent war…and US able to give you that truth…
All that’s needed now is for you to help us, TODAY, so that we can continue our efforts.
Please do so now.
