Getting closer to an era of government approved media

President Barack Obama bolstered the Democratic myth that “fake news” was responsible for Donald Trump’s election, increasing the likelihood that outright internet censorship of alternative media is on the horizon.

“If we can’t discriminate between serious arguments and propaganda, then we have problems,” Obama said during a press conference alongside German leader Angela Merkel.

Part of the problem, according to Obama, is that the internet has lowered the barrier of entry to mass audiences to the point where internet hoaxsters have the same reach as traditional media outlets like CNN.

“If everything seems to be the same and no distinctions are made, then we won’t know what to protect,” Obama said. “We won’t know what to fight for.”

Of course, what the president is saying and what he and establishment attackers of alternative media really mean are totally different things.

We’ve covered this several times since the establishment news media began flipping out over its inability to convince Americans that Hillary Clinton was the inevitable future President of the United States.

Think about the tenor of the presidential election as portrayed by the national mainstream news media. If all your information came from mainstream outlets, it wasn’t an election about issues— it was an election about whether we’d have the first female president or be led by an alleged misogynistic racist.

The only problem was this: The media never really managed to find any firm evidence to back its character assassination of Trump in a meaningful way. Meanwhile, no thanks to the national news media, Clinton’s career of corruption came into plain view because of the work of transparency groups.

And that’s where alternative media came in, reporting and analyzing what the mainstream wouldn’t.

The liberal political establishment is losing control, and it is terrified. Think about the story the propaganda news networks fed American voters after Clinton’s campaign emails were leaked.


The comments are actually better than the full story - sometimes!

And then there is this one: According to this Executive Order (Executive Order 13603) the President, or those he designates, can conscript “persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation,” in “peacetime and times of national emergency.” In a nutshell, that means that Barack Obama, and those he designates, can seize any resource, property, or person at any time for any reason, including forcing that person with labor without being paid.
There is only ONE word for forced, “uncompensated employment.” That word is slavery.

It's obvious: The media establishment outlets didn't report on Hillary's scandals and the source of her campaign funds because they wanted Hillary to win. Instead, they tried to portray Donald Trump as a misogynistic racist. And now they're all bent out of shape because their candidate didn't cruise to victory. Those media personalities must really be embarrassed right now.
