Lies, Big Lies And Magnificent Ultra Big Lies By The Media

The week’s news that wasn’t


Rehumanizing, unNazifying, dusting off and unlocking the most repugnant, Hitleresque, oldest and most constrained fakeries in fake news.
Wiping out Down syndrome
Each year in American about 6,000 babies are born with Down syndrome. Caused when an individual has a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21, Down syndrome’s common traits include low muscle tone, small stature, an upward slant to the eyes and cognitive delays ranging from mild to severe.
In 1910, children born with Down syndrome had a lifespan of about 9 years. Today, with corrective surgeries (particularly heart surgeries) and clinical treatments, about 80 percent those with Down syndrome live to be 60 years old, and some much longer. And they are increasingly being integrated into the general population; living on their own, holding jobs and contributing much to society.
Parents of Down syndrome children speak unabashedly about how precious and special their children are and how enriched their lives have become through raising their Down syndrome child.
We badly want all children to be born perfect – and most Down syndrome parents believe their child is perfect – so eliminating birth defects is a laudable though likely unattainable goal.
But CBS News tells us that Iceland is on the way to attaining a country free of babies with birth defects. The story’s headline: ‘”What kind of society do you want to live in?”: Inside the country where Down syndrome is disappearing.”
We learn that only two or three children with Down syndrome are born in Iceland each year. So, has Iceland achieved a breakthrough in medical technology? Have they found the cause of Down syndrome and eradicated it? From CBS:
Geneticist Kari Stefansson is the founder of deCODE Genetics, a company that has studied nearly the entire Icelandic population’s genomes. He has a unique perspective on the advancement of medical technology. He told CBS, “My understanding is that we have basically eradicated, almost, Down syndrome from our society — that there is hardly ever a child with Down syndrome in Iceland anymore.”
Sadly, no, Iceland has not “basically eradicated, almost, Down syndrome.” It’s just engaged in the abhorrently despicable practice of eradicating babies with Down syndrome before they’re born.
At Iceland’s Landspitali University Hospital, Helga Sol Olafsdottir counsels women who have a pregnancy with a baby experiencing a chromosome abnormality.
“We don’t look at abortion as a murder,” she told CBS. “We look at it as a thing that we ended. We ended a possible life that may have had a huge complication… preventing suffering for the child and for the family. And I think that is more right than seeing it as a murder — that’s so black and white. Life isn’t black and white. Life is grey.” (emphasis mine)
This is more than just murder. It’s eugenics. It’s an evil philosophy rooted in the notion that some people are more equal than others; that some people have rights and others don’t; that moral worth and natural rights are rooted in genetic fitness or one person’s or group’s definition of ethnic purity; that someone who is designated by the state or the elite as “unfit” or “impure” can be tossed away as so much garbage.
It had its heyday in Nazi Germany and resulted in sterilization, segregation, institutionalization, euthanasia, mass murder and a world war. And now it’s apparently coming back as public policy. Bob Livingston has warned us in the past what “public policy” actually means.
And medical ethicists – a contradiction in terms – are increasingly proposing that not only do the soon-to-be-born not have any natural rights, neither do the newly born, because they lack the capability of attributing their own existence to some basic value. Therefore, “afterbirth” abortions should be permissible in all cases where an abortion is, including if the child is not born with a disability.
And speaking of Nazism…
No matter how many times the MSM (and Wikipedia) says it and the dumbed down American public school victims repeat it, Nazism is not a “right wing” ideology.
The term “Nazi” stems from Adolph Hitler’s National Socialist German Worker’s Party. It was big government, state-worshipping authoritarianism that embraced leftist eugenics policies and social welfare programs, opposed communism and parliamentary democracy and redistributed wealth.
As Hitler himself said:
Each activity and each need of the individual will thereby be regulated by the party as the representative of the general good. There will be no license, no free space, in which the individual belongs to himself. This is socialism — not such trifles as the private possession of the means of production. Of what importance is that if I range men firmly within a discipline they cannot escape? Let them then own land or factories as much as they please. The decisive factor is that the State, through the party, is supreme over them, regardless whether they are owners or workers. All that, you see, is unessential. Our socialism goes far deeper.
In a May 1, 1927 speech, Hitler said:
 We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic
economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak,  with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a  human being according to wealth and property instead of  responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy  this system under all conditions.
And as Hitler readied his forces for Operation Barbarossa on June 16, 1941, Josef Goebbels wrote that he looked forward to the new order the Nazis would impose on a conquered Russia. There would be no come-back, he wrote, for capitalists nor priests nor Tsars. Rather, in the place of debased, Jewish Bolshevism, the Wehrmacht would deliver “der echte Sozialismus”: real socialism.
Hitler preached class warfare, agitating the working class to resist “exploitation” by capitalists — particularly Jewish capitalists, of course. His program called for the nationalization of education, health care, transportation, and other major industries. He instituted and vigorously enforced a strict gun control regimen. He encouraged pornography, illegitimacy, and abortion, and denounced Christians as right-wing fanatics.
Each of those policies is decidedly left wing.
A correction 103 years in the making
The Financial Times has been the voice of the globalist banksters for more than a century. Its words are taken as gospel for the global financial community.
But last week the FT came clean and admitted it had colluded with the government of England and printed fake news. It issued a clarification more than 100 years after the fact.
Seems the Times was less than truthful when it claimed the British government’s war loan in 1914 was “oversubscribed” and had more investors than needed to cover it. In fact, the government had to turn to the central bank after the loan brought in less than a third of the £350 million it sought.
The “discrepancy” was found by Bank of England employees scouring the bank’s old ledgers.
Owing to the government’s concerns that a failed bond sale would have been “disasterous” to the general public, FT provided the cover and the central bank purchased the unbought securities in the name of its chief cashier, listing them on the balance sheet as “other securities.”
The original headline looked like this:
Here’s the clarification:
On 23 November 1914, a piece published in the Financial Times claimed the UK government’s War Loan was “oversubscribed”, with applications “pouring in”. The item described this as an “amazing result” that “proves how strong is the financial position of the British nation”. We are now happy to make clear that none of the above was true.
So The Financial Times knowingly published state propaganda which made an unsuccessful bond sale appear successful  and attempted to sucker others into the scheme by offering “further particulars of this magnificent investment… upon request.”
As the Economic Policy Journal asks: “Could this be the only time FT has colluded with the government?”
Nah!
Former gatekeeper asks how he can reclose the gate
MSNBC’s Morning Joe rivals CNN in its broadcasting of fake news, so turning there in search of it feels almost like cheating. But sometimes we need a break from hard work and a good laugh at the same time. In that regard, Morning Joe never disappoints.
Monday’s guest was self-described “liberal atheist” Kurt Andersen, a novelist, sometime contributor to The New York times, and host of Public Radio International’s Studio360 radio program. While promoting his new book about the fantasyland in which he resides, Andersen “bemoaned the extremely polarized state of contemporary American politics and its supposed detachment from reality, which he blames in part on the mainstream media’s losing their ability to peddle a single narrative.”
The establishment media, he claimed, once kept the “worst hogwash out of the stream,” but that ability was “stolen” or “mooted” by the internet. He longed, he said, for the time where the three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC), The New York Times, Time magazine and Newsweek – as he described them, the “descent, reasonable establishment” – served as gatekeepers to all information. He said he wanted a return to “objective” journalism.
Americans love to think – and have been propagandized – that the media’s job is to present the news fairly and objectively. But all the way back to before the American Revolution, American media have picked sides and advocated for a position in all conflicts. The myth that the press was objective gained status through the 20th century as national media coverage became co-opted by the three television networks, The Times, Time magazine and Newsweek.
That there has ever been “objective journalism” in America is one of the biggest lies ever told. National media — even in Walter Cronkite days — have always been partisan, and throughout the last half of the last century it seldom, if ever, presented any “side” other than government’s side.
In doing so it’s glossed over a host of instances of government atrocities and has promoted wars and actively worked to divide Americans along the areas of race and class. And even though the truth is now trickling out through means of alternative media, the traditional gatekeepers are joined by the cable news networks, social media platforms and search engines in continuing to try and reclose the gate.
As a reminder, six megacorporations control more than 90 percent of all you see, read and hear.

Business Leaders Cave To Irrational Fears


Business leaders abandon economic recovery efforts because of rioting idiots


President Donald Trump on Wednesday dissolved two economic councils put together to help improve the direction of the nation’s economy after several high-profile CEOs said they no longer wish to work with the administration. Why’d they defect so abruptly?  Because the president failed to blame the riots in Charlottesville, Va., solely on white racism.
“Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both. Thank you all!” Trump wrote in a tweet.
The move comes as eight of the top CEOs on the councils announced they this week that they would no longer work with the administration because Trump blamed “both sides” for the tragedy that occurred in Charlottesville.
Members of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum released a statement following his tweet accusing the administration of supporting intolerance and racism.
“Intolerance, racism and violence have absolutely no place in this country and are an affront to core American values,” the members said. “We believe debate over forum participation has become a distraction from our well-intentioned and sincere desire to aid vital policy discussions on how to improve the lives of everyday Americans.”
Notables opting out of the economic panels this week included: Merck & Co. CEO Kenneth Frazier, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Under Armour’s Kevin Plank, Alliance for American Manufacturing President Scott Paul, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and economist Thea Lee.
While the biggest chunk of CEOs left this week, they weren’t the first to decide progressive agenda issues were more important than economic recovery.
Former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick quit the Manufacturing Advisory Council earlier because of Trump’s travel ban. Tesla’s Elon Musk and Disney’s Bob Iger couldn’t stomach the administration’s position on the Paris climate deal.
What’s most depressing about all this, is that Trump’s failure to say more about the rioting morons in Virginia and the supposed race war that’s going on appears more rooted in his desire to focus as much attention as possible on the economy than in any underlying social beliefs.
And it makes sense… to rational Americans, at least.
There are far more people concerned about the nation’s financial future than worried about the supposed race war evidently visible only to the hyper sensitive. You know, the people who have nothing better to do than march around all day with stupid torches– or the ones who hear about the stupid torches and decide to march around all day in opposition of the stupid torches.
We had a president whose attention was routinely focused on the small groups of the nation’s noisiest people for eight years– as the economy fell to pieces, there was a national discussion about who poops where. And that’s precisely why we need a president who focuses only on issues he has power to correct today. Trump can’t keep morons off the streets. But he can attempt to improve the economy.

Those Who Pull Down Statutes Should Face Punishment

Woman, 22, who pulled down Confederate statue in North Carolina is arrested and could face PRISON - as Democrat governor vows to remove all 'anti-American' Civil War monuments from his state

  • Takiyah Thompson, 22, was arrested after she admitted to helping bring down a Confederate monument on Monday in Durham, North Carolina
  • She said she climbed a ladder to the top to tie a rope around the monument before the crowd tore it down
  • On Tuesday before her arrest, she said her actions were justified because Confederate statues represent white supremacy
  • She is charged with disorderly conduct by injury to a statue, damage to real property and two other felony counts
  • Vandalism comes after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday over a statue of Confederate hero Robert E. Lee 
A woman who claims she took part in the toppling of the Confederate statue with a group of protesters in North Carolina has been arrested and is facing several charges.
It comes as the state's Democrat governor Roy Cooper said on Tuesday that he wants to bring down Confederate monuments around the state, thrusting himself into a debate stoked by violence in Virginia.
Cooper said: 'We cannot continue to glorify a war against the United States of America fought in the defense of slavery,' Cooper said in a statement. 'These monuments should come down.' 
Takiyah Thompson, 22, was taken into custody on Tuesday by Durham County sheriff's deputies shortly after protesters held a news conference at North Carolina Central University where she identified herself as the person who climbed a ladder to the top to tie a rope around the monument before the crowd tore it down on Monday.
She can be seen in video showing the moments before the Confederate statue was toppled.
During the press conference, Thompson said that her actions were justified because Confederate statues represent white supremacy.

Authorities charged Thompson with disorderly conduct by injury to a statue, damage to real property, participation in a riot with property damage in excess of $1,500 and inciting others to riot where there is property damage in excess of $1,500.
During the press conference and prior to Thompson's arrest, protesters called for authorities to drop any charges related to the incident.  
'The people decided to take matters into our own hands and remove the statue,' Thompson, a member of the far-left Workers World Party and a student at N.C. Central University, said before being arrested. 
'We are tired of waiting on politicians who could have voted to remove the white supremacist statues years ago, but they failed to act. So we acted.'
But Sheriff Mike Andrews said protesters who toppled the nearly century-old Confederate statue in front of a North Carolina government building would face felony charges. 
'No one is getting away with this,' Andrews said. 'We can all agree yesterday went too far.' 
The Confederate Soldiers Monument, dedicated in 1924, stood in front of an old courthouse that how houses local government offices. The crumpled and dented bronze figure has been taken to a warehouse for storage.

The incident in Durham on Monday comes in response to the violent clashes that erupted at a rally by white nationalists who were protesting the pending removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday. 
Cooper says Confederate monuments 'should come down' and wants the legislature to repeal a law preventing state and local governments from removing them permanently and limiting their relocation. 
The Democratic governor says Civil War history doesn't belong in 'a place of allegiance on our Capitol grounds.' 
North Carolina is one of only three states - along with Virginia and Georgia - that have 90 or more Confederate monuments, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. 
A state tally shows at least 120 Civil War monuments around North Carolina, with the vast majority dedicated to the Confederacy. Around 50 are located at contemporary or historic courthouses. 
The Republican-controlled legislature would have to repeal the 2015 law restricting the removal of monuments. 
Cooper says he's also asked state officials to determine costs and logistics for removing Confederate monuments from state property.

Workers began removing a Confederate statue in Gainesville, Florida on Monday. The statue is being returned to the local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, which erected the bronze statue in 1904

Cities and states accelerated their plans to remove Confederate monuments from public property Tuesday as the violence over a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, moved leaders across the country to plan to wipe away much of the remaining Old South imagery.
Only two statues were taken down immediately, in Gainesville, Florida, where the Daughters of the Confederacy removed a statue of a Confederate soldier known as 'Ole Joe,' and in Durham, North Carolina, where protesters used a rope to pull down that Confederate monument.
But the anti-Confederate momentum seemed to ensure that other memorials would come down soon. 
Many local and state governments announced that they would remove statues and other imagery from public land, or consider doing so, in the aftermath of Saturday's white nationalist rally that killed one person and injured dozens more.
The changes were publicized as President Donald Trump defended Confederate statues in wide-ranging remarks.
'This week it's Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson's coming down,' Trump said during a visit to Trump Tower in New York. 'I wonder, is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?'
Asked specifically whether Charlottesville's Lee statue should come down, he said: 'I would say that's up to a local town, community or the federal government, depending on where it is located.'
All around the country, Republican and Democratic officials at the state and local levels moved swiftly to begin a process to remove the statues.
