Tamping down a wildfire

How the media is trying to stifle the most encouraging development in decades.

We’ve mentioned the global protests and uprisings against the “Build Back Better” agenda sponsored by the World Economic Forum and others. However, there’s been surprisingly little said about them in the mainstream media.

Surprising, Peter? Hardly. It was only to be expected from such as they. They no longer see their proper role as reporting, but as influencing, even steering or controlling. That’s how it’s been for decades now; the “journalism” ship sailed with Watergate, perhaps before even that.

It’s almost as if they don’t exist, as far as most journalists and editors are concerned.

Well, naturally. They don’t WANT them to exist, and intend to kill the whole movement off a-borning. Experience hath shewn that sometimes the best way to do that isn’t to denounce them, ridicule them, or refute their contentions, but to maintain a strict silence about them. That’s where that whole “gatekeepers” concept they’re so enamored of comes into play, see.

Sky News Australia recently hosted Prof. Ralph Schoellhammer to discuss the issue. He wrote an article in Newsweek titled “A Popular Uprising Against the Elites Has Gone Global”, and elaborates on it in his discussion with Sky News. I’ve posted the video below. It’s about 13½ minutes long: if that’s too long for easy viewing, you’ll find a highly abbreviated transcript of his main points here, and in his Newsweek article.

The protests are getting worse and worse, all over the globe. It’s seriously threatening, not just to the social fabric, but to ideological and geopolitical interests – including ours. For example, do you know how critical the Panama Canal is to US business and commerce (not to mention military and strategic implications)? Well, the unrest in Panama is getting so bad that it might threaten that country’s stability: and that would, in turn, threaten the operation of the Canal.

Don’t just look at the surface of such crises. They usually have much deeper implications.

Indubitably so. If one wishes to learn the whole truth, one must always and forever be prepared to dig down deep to get at it, whatever the subject, context or circumstance. It has long been clear to most serious, thoughtful people that Jurassic Media isn’t the place to go looking for it. No one who still relies mainly on purveyors of Leftist propaganda such as the NYT, WaPo, ABCBNBS, and CNN for their news and information has any business whatsoever thinking of themselves as “well-informed.” It’s no accident that it was Sky News, something of an upstart and a maverick in the biz, who provided Schoellhammer with a forum to air his forbidden Badthink.

From that perspective, Prof. Schoellhammer’s views are concerning, to say the least.

Not to me they ain’t. Actually, I’d find it much more concerning if there weren’t protest and/or resistance movements springing up all over the once-free world by now, given the unprecedented, staggering outrages and swaggering criminality we’ve witnessed these last several years. As for the good Professor himself, he has a good many other things to be concerned about, I’d say. As are those bold, fed-up souls currently daring to rise up in protest against the abusive lawlessness of the Ancien Regime, every truth-teller such as himself who lives in a nation as systematically awash in deceit, manipulation, and low skullduggery as this one are perpetually in mortal danger from more than just a single direction.

Not only are the US media ignoring the protests, the UK, Canuck and Spanish media that I check out daily are doing so as well.

As an aside, SkyNewsUK has kept mum so far, as opposed to SkyNewsAus.

It’s soooo easy to misuse the charge of treason. So it’s good to be careful. But even then, how can any sane person not think this was the literal constitutional definition thereof?

Joe Poopy just gave the taliban a treasure trove of weapons, they are now working to take over Pakistan, they have over 200 nukes and are delivery capable. Some of these rebellions against the old order and NOT good.

Too late. TPTB have really stepped in it this time – their sanctions have kicked off a world firestorm. Get your asbestos underwear on . . .

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
