The postmodern media plague of unreliable sources and information

On April 29, 2013 · 24 Comments

Have you noticed that a lot of information obtained from main stream media, alternative media, religious media, intelligence, and the Internet cannot be depended upon? How are people suppose to sort out the truth if they can’t find reliable sources for information? In this postmodern media plague where truth is what certain factions want it to be, we get half-truths, disinformation and outright lies. The media “facts” given to us today turn out to be fabrications tomorrow. Whatever the headlines of great interest are this week will not even be mentioned next week if it does not advance the government or media agenda.

In the acute phase of some perceived crisis all we really get is information overload followed by little reliable follow-up information, if any at all. It seem like the sources of information jump from crisis to crisis just for the sake of jumping from crisis to crisis instead of getting Americans in-depth truth about what really occurred. The news released to the public today is mostly what government, media talking heads, or what special interest groups want us to believe.

I will give a few of the recent high profile examples:

U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder was charged with contempt of congress for withholding information on the Fast and Furious government gun running operation but what is Congress even doing about it and why is the media not digging up and presenting the facts on Holder’s illegal cover-ups?

This Obama Administration’s illegal gun running operation helped get hundreds of people killed in Mexico but where is the outcry and indignation? Obviously, the government controlled media does not want the truth to get out that this administration wanted American guns to be found killing Mexicans. Some in U.S. agencies were complicit in allowing this murder, just so that some in the Obama administration could claim that U.S. guns were killing people in Mexico. People high up in our government should be tried for accessory to murder and conspiracy to defraud but most media is silent.

Who is getting to the truth of what really happened at Benghazi with the killing of our Ambassador and three other Americans? It is obvious that there has been illegal activities, cover-ups, irresponsible actions, and perjury but main stream media just reports government fed disinformation or are silent.

Congress could not agree on the programs to be cut in government so they agreed upon sequestering some of the increase in Government spending. This small cut in the increase in annual spending was supposed to bring the near end of the world according to the Obama administration and their liberal media mouthpieces, but who is reporting on the fact that none of the fear mongering that Obama spouted on liberal media actually happened?

Did we get the whole story on the shooting at Sandy Hook? I am not so sure. How was a lone gunman able to kill 27 people but only wound three? This death to wounded ratio simply has not ever happened before in the real world by any lone shooter, but who in the media even dares to question the information released to the public? Was there more than one shooter? Were kids unable to escape for some unknown reason that someone does not want the public to know about? Reliable information is not being given, so who knows?

Was there any doubt that the Far Left was just waiting for such an event to try to take away guns from the citizens of America? How about someone reporting on the vast Left Wing gun control conspiracy? Gun control legislation was all over the news a couple of weeks ago but now that the bill failed in the Senate, there is silence. Even so, Harry Reed can bring the bill to a vote again in the Senate any time he wants. Who is reporting that some in government are now just waiting for another mass shooting to try to push the bill through again? Next time the bill will be ready at the height of the story and emotions will prevail over reason. Some “progressives” are even counting on a mass shooting to happen, but few report on that.

If the expected shooting does not happen, the gun hating conspirators will try again after the 2014 elections or when one of the aging Conservative Supreme Court Justices is replaced by another liberal. Then the Second Amendment will be redefined by a liberal court. I think you can bet that something like what I said will happen if the citizens allow it, but what media will tell you about the conspiratorial “Progressive” agenda in this nation to disarm everyone but the real criminals and the progressively militarized police?

Heck, if law enforcement could even deal with gangs, drugs, crime, and control freak politicians wanting to run everyone’s lives in America, most Americans would see little need for guns outside of their use for hunting. However, there is a real threat from increasingly statist and tyrannical government, criminals, and from complete society breakdown. For those reasons, common sense drives many normal people to want to own guns for self-defense. However, who in MSM is reporting on the real reason why Americans want to own guns? The latest Pew survey even says that more Americans now fear our own government than they do terrorism.

Why is Homeland security arming to the teeth? Why do they need 2 billion bullets, many of them hollow points? The director of Homeland Security thus far has not even answered the inquires of Congress about why she feels she needs all those bullets and media is not getting to the facts about their huge ammo purchases either. You can’t tell me that an outfit as large as the Department of Homeland Security would not have some people who would spill the beans to real reporters that they knew would not endanger them by revealing their source of information. However, when whistle blowers have no protection by either media or the U. S. Attorney General, don’t expect people to risk their careers and their lives for a story that will not make the MSM news anyway.

Two weeks ago the North Korean crisis was all over the news and we were led to believe that a Korean war was a distinct possibility any minute. Has anything changed on the part of the North Koreans? In reality, they have taken even more provocative actions, but have you heard anything more about the North Korean threat on the news lately?

Iran has not stopped their nuclear program but what have you heard on the media about the nuclear advancement going on in Iran lately and who is reporting on the actions the Obama administration will carry out if Iran does not stop its nuclear weapons agenda?

In Boston we had an Islamic terrorist attack but much of the information given to us was wrong and misleading. The two bombers made five bombs from pressure cookers. Some in government and media were telling us to believe that they acted alone and that nobody else in the Islamic world knew anything about it. However, others source say there are 1000 FBI agents tracking down a terrorist cell group. What is the truth? Does anyone in media even know how to investigate these things?

The alive one of the two brothers that was caught is telling people what they want to hear, so now they will bring his Jihad Mama over to pat him on his head and tell Americans what a good Muslim boy her son is. After all he was just unduly influenced by his dead older brother and his older brother is not talking.

Of course the Saudis had nothing to do with the Boston bombing, just like they had nothing to do with 9/11. That Saudi student of interest was just in the area of the bombings by some strange twist of fate and He was taken to the hospital for burns on his hands because he was playing with matches in spite of Jihad Mama’s intrusions.

He smiles, so he must be innocent.  Let’s not mention that this Saudi is connected to the same Saudi clan that pulled off 9/11. Let’s also not tell people that the visitor logs say this Saudi student made a visit to the White House before the bombing.

Let’s also downplay the mention that Michele Obama reportedly visited this Saudi student while in the hospital. We also should downplay the fact that the Saudi Foreign Ministry came here to talk to President Obama right after that this student was hospitalized and then the FBI promptly downgraded this person from a suspect to a “person of interest”. Someone might think that investigative reporters could get to the bottom of all this, but it seems that investigative reporters are now an endangered species.

Debka File is an intelligence news organization that said that the Tsarnaev brothers were double agents. In other words, they say our government thought they were working for them but they were in reality working for the Wahhabi jihadist networks. The report sounds credible but then again, how reliable a source is Debka proving out to be? How is the average American supposed to know what is the truth when the truth is whatever the story teller wants it to be?

In any case, Debka wants the following questions answered.

a) At what date did the Tsarnaev brothers turn coat and decide to work for Caucasian Wahhabi networks?
b) Did they round up recruits for those networks in the United States – particularly, among the Caucasian and Saudi communities?
c)  What was the exact purpose of the Boston Marathon bombings and their aftermath at MIT in Watertown?
d) Are any more terrorist attacks in the works in other American cities?

The 30,000 Saudi Muslim students in this country are of course no security risks at all if you listen to our government. So they put them on the trusted travel list. And of course, that train full of people that budding Islamic student engineers in Canada planned to divert into the Niagara Falls Gorge was just some Saudi amusement park prototype.

Anyway, I am betting that by next week little will be said about the Boston terrorist attacks anymore by information sources in this country because something else will be their headline obsession by then. Maybe, it will be how our own gang of eight in the Senate plan to shove 40 million illegal aliens down our throat over the next ten years while claiming it will only be 11 million and while we are being continually distracted with all these other stories?

Or maybe the reported Syrian gas use will become the next crises. As I write this they are playing up how gas was being used on the Syrian government resistance. Media tells us that this clearly crosses Obama’s red line so they think he needs to do something about it. If that does not become next week’s crisis I am sure some new crisis that you do not know about yet will surely come along to keep these weekly crises continually flowing. Remember, the Democrat motto is “never let a good crises go to waste”.

Further, during the Boston bombing there was the Ricin poison letters being sent to Obama and a congressman or two, but what was that really about?  And that fertilizer plant near Waco Texas just blew up all by itself around the 20th anniversary of the Waco massacre? It seems Media is buying the accident story. Maybe it really was just an accident. I don’t know. However, I do know that I can’t trust much of what is reported by government or media anymore.

This nation can’t even act like we are under Islamic terrorist attack except when we lock down the entire city of Boston for a manhunt for one Muslim person and use 9000 police dressed as storm troopers to force people out of their homes at gun point in a 20 block area of Watertown Mass. It apparently does not matter to the media that this paramilitary invasion of homes was a clear violation of the fourth amendment to our Constitution. Any perceived threat trumps the Constitution every time in our brave new world.

Someone in our government ought to admit that Islam is at war with us or else they should just disband the police state that they are obviously creating to deal with the Islamic terrorism that they ought to know is coming. Calling Christians or right-wing patriots the terrorist threat in this nation just shows that “progressives” are in denial of the obvious truth and have a mental disorder.

Reporters or government agents cannot even say the words Islamic Jihad without their bosses or our leaders foaming at the mouth or wetting their beds. It is much more politically correct to say the threat is law-abiding conservatives and Christians then to admit that radicals in Islam have declared war on the West and that they really want all “infidels” converted or dead.

We know that MSM is biased and a mouthpiece of government so we should not expect to receive reliable information from there. After all, all major news organizations are owned by elite billionaires that do not want to rock the boat or to have their own globalist agenda hindered. Did you know that a Saudi billionaire even owns about 20 percent of Fox?  How fair and balanced can Fox be when they probably fear to report any Saudi connection to terrorism?

Even Christian media has its own agenda. Don’t expect to get the truth from the few dozen people who control all of Christian media. They push people who are popular and that sell concepts that appeases the world and the itching ears within anything called Christianity. Those teaching what the Bible actually says and pointing out the dire condition of the world and the Apostasy in what is called Christendom are not likely to get Christian air time or books published by Mainstream Christian media.

Even Alternative news sites seem to be driven by sales. They promote theologically shaky authors because their books bring in revenue. That is bad enough, but then they also do hit pieces on discernment ministries that oppose the aberrant books that they promote. It seems the owners and reporters for these sites seldom come up with anything more solid than endless speculations based on conspiracy theories. How about some proof in the pudding?

Unreliable sources of information have become a plague in this postmodern generation. It is now very difficult to come up with the truth from what you find on most media sources in America. A manipulated public where truth is only what people in government or media want it to be will have dire consequences for the people of America.
