No one paying attention with even one eye and half an ear can be ignorant of the fact that when it comes to this year’s election the MSM are lying shills for Hillary. But now it seems they’re all suffering from amnesia too.

The latest “OMG, Trump said that!” moment is The Donald’s claim that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are, correspondingly, the “founder” and “cofounder” of ISIS. True to form, the media reaction has been to shriek in outrage that he would cast aspersions on such august personages.

As of this writing, not one American media source of which this writer is aware has brought up in relation to Trump’s claims the August 2012 report (declassified and released in 2015 under a FOIA request from Judicial Watch) from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) stating that “there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria, and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.” The “supporting powers” are identified as “western countries” (no doubt including and led by the United States), “the Gulf States” (presumably including and led by Saudi Arabia), and “Turkey” (just Turkey).

In August 2012 the Secretary of State at the time was one Hillary Rodham Clinton. The President was and still is one Barack Hussein Obama.

The current state of American politics must make us question whether any of our leaders in the Beltway can be described as “grown-ups”, i.e., fully mature and sane individuals. Between the endless war crimes, corporate corruption, lobbyists who bribe congressmen and write legislation, and the ineptitude of federal entities who are supposed to protect our health such as the FDA, EPA, and CDC, it would appear that leaders in all three branches of government, as well as the leaders of the corporate world, are either insane, suffer from various psychological disorders, as well as suffering from a type of collective hallucination, the common denominator being an utter lack of empathy for others humans, or respect for the Earth.

Further, we must at least question whether collectively, we the citizenry, are as susceptible to mass delusions as our psychopathic leaders are. Our society can be effectively generalized as forming what Paulo Freire calls a culture of silence, many of whom see no problems with exploiting and despoiling other countries, looting wealth, and killing millions; and many more that are simply afraid to speak out against the indignity of the US empire, in fear of socio-cultural reprisals. This culture of silence, which we are taught at a young age, indoctrinates and effectively eliminates the ability of people to form critiques of our rotten political and economic systems. This is who Richard Nixon was really referring to, when he spoke of the “Silent Majority”: citizens too naïve, dumb, childlike, and afraid to confront the injustices inherent to our system were exactly who Tricky Dick was appealing to.

An audio recording has surfaced proving that U.S. Senator John McCain collaborated with the North Vietnamese by recording a “Tokyo Rose”-style propaganda message that was broadcast on North Vietnamese radio in 1969. For many years, American former P.O.W.s who were in the “Hanoi Hilton” North Vietnamese prison with John McCain called him a “Songbird” who collaborated with the enemy against his own country. Stewart Rhodes joins Gary Franchi to discuss the implications,

‘On June 28th 2009, Honduran soldiers marched into the bedroom of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya while he was in his pajamas and forced him at gunpoint to walk into a waiting jet and exiled him to Costa Rica. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the ouster of the Honduran President as a coup as she called for “the full restoration of democratic order in Honduras.”

The “democratic order” Clinton was suggesting was not to restore Zelaya as the legitimate president but a president (or more like a U.S. Puppet) that Washington finds suitable for its interests. Roberto Micheletti replaced Zelaya as an interim president. Micheletti lived in the U.S. (Florida) early in his life.

Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the overthrow of the democratically elected president of Honduras Manual Zelaya is clear while most of the main-stream media ignores Clinton’s involvement in destroying yet another democracy in Central America by the U.S. government.’

The Internet – founded by the Pentagon under the guise of “liberating the information flow for a more democratic world” – is in fact creating a world of character-devoid monoculture machines who think and talk the same and with only the vaguest resemblance to their former humanity.

Life-experience has been tossed over the side in favor of whatever Wikipedia or Ask Jeeves says about it. Everyone knows everything about…well…everything. People are talk too much. No one listens. The information overload produces indecision, isolation, fragmentation and confusion in people.

All the while the “expert drones” who have positioned themselves as Internet gatekeepers get dumber, more detached from reality, and frighteningly amoral.

The most recent example of this was the black women in Minneapolis whose boyfriend had been shot by a white supremacist cop during a routine traffic stop. It was creepy enough to watch the cop screaming like the demented psychopath that he is on the video from the women’s all-important “smart” phone.

Far more disturbing was the fact that the woman was so busy narcissistically filming the situation for her fake Facebook friends and sycophants – that she neglected to help her dying boyfriend in any way. He died, but hey, she’s famous. Isn’t that what really matters?

The Dallas Shooting is significant on a number of levels.

Firstly, Dallas will further accentuate the artificial divide between what Americans perceive as the ‘Left’ or liberal wing of political society, and the what is sold as America’s ‘Right’ or conservative wing. In this dialectic, Democrat is set against Republican, young against old, black is pitted against white, wealthy against poor, upper class against middle class, and even middle class against lower class. In the run-up to the Presidential election in November, this division will be important in order to polarize America along a prefabricated dialectical line and thus keeping the national discourse down at a base, or emotional level – and through this binary process avoid any real examination of America’s fundamental issues, policy flaws and the federal government’s unsustainable bloated borrow & spend habit – effectively kicking the can down the road another 4 years (which seems to be the norm). Ultimately, this serves the state, its bureaucratic stakeholders and the power structure as a whole.

Secondly, this event can be used to nudge the ‘left-wing’ and Democrat party’s own gun control agenda, which is being aggressively pursued at the moment. This wing of the political establishment has already demonstrated that it has no qualms about using a national incident or tragedy, like the Orlando Shooting, as warm PR leverage to push their ’emergency’ legislative agenda. Ironically, ‘left-wing’ and black activists will be blamed for this latest act of political violence and will be used in this case to further advance the political left’s own bespoke gun control agenda – much to the dismay of ‘Conservative America.’

As a result of this staged event carried out by agent provocateurs, “anti-police” or “anti-government” African-American ‘militant’, or ‘Black Power’ activists will be painted a poor light, and effectively marginalized. Once this process if complete, the state can then move in to extend that marginalization to any ‘anti-government’ protests – further neutering any real grass-roots opposition for what is obviously a rapidly growing police state in the US.

Thirdly, this event is being used to increase tension between the public and law enforcement. Note the differences between the short and the long-term narratives at play here. In the short-term, this Dallas Sniper event is originally designed as a ‘reaction’ to US police killing poor unarmed black men on the streets of America, but in the long-term the pendulum will swing back to the state in order to “restore law and order”, thus further consolidating power into a more concentrated police state. This is evidenced already by US law enforcement are already rallying in solidarity, in an “us against them” dialectic by placing the nation’s police as the protagonist and the public as the antagonist.

This obvious dialectical theme is already being echoed internationally on Twitter, as police in the US and the UK advance the term ‘Thin Blue Line”:

In his testimony before the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee on Thursday, FBI Director James Comey explained that if a member of the FBI had handled classified information in the manner Hillary Clinton had on her private email servers, there would be a number of consequences.

“Do you really believe there should be no consequence for Hillary Clinton and how she dealt with this,” Chairman of the Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz asked the FBI Director.

Comey responded, “I hope folks remember what I said on Tuesday, I didn’t say there’s no consequence for someone who violates the rules regarding the handling of classified information.”

“There are often very severe consequences in the FBI involving their employment, their pay, their clearances,” said Comey, who was responsible for recommending that no charges be placed against Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton for her mishandling of classified information. “I Hope folks walk away understanding that just because someone’s not prosecuted for mishandling classified information, that doesn’t mean if you work in the FBI there aren’t consequences.”

Chairman Chaffetz then went on to ask the FBI director what the consequences would be for Clinton if she had been in the FBI and carelessly handled classified information as she did as Secretary of State.

“There would be a security review and an adjudication of their suitability and a range of discipline could be imposed from termination to reprimand, and in between suspension, loss of clearance,” Said Comey. “So you could be walked out or, depending on the nature of the facts, you could be reprimanded but there is a robust process to handle that.”

“We’re mystified,” Chaffetz insisted during the hearing. “It seems that there are two standards, and there’s no consequence for these types of activities and dealing in a careless way with classified information.”

Yeah… today is the Fourth of July. Today we celebrate our freedom but that’s a sham. There is no freedom when you are chained to a wheel and where you have surrendered your liberty in the false hope of a non existent security. It doesn’t get taken from you. You give it up. No one becomes a slave until they cease to be their own master. Like the country western song says, “If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.”
