  • NSA Whistle Blowers Warn that the USGovernment Can Use Surveillance to ‘See IntoYour Life’economicpolicyjournal.comJuly 24, 2012This is a shocking video confirming, by former NSAemployees, what many of us probably suspected aboutthe National Security Agency.NSA whistle blowers Thomas Drake, former seniorofficial; Kirk Wiebe, former senior analyst; and WilliamBinney, former technical director, return to “Viewpoint”to talk about their allegations that the NSA hasconducted illegal domestic surveillance. All three menare providing evidence in a lawsuit by the ElectronicFrontier Foundation against the NSA.Drake says the spying affects “the entire country,” citinga “key decision made shortly after 9/11 which began torapidly turn the United States of America into theequivalent of a foreign nation for dragnet blanketelectronic surveillance.”“It’s hard to believe that your government’s gonna actually do it,” Wiebe says. “That was the shocker.”Binney mentions a new NSA facility under construction in Bluffdale, Utah: “That facility alone canprobably hold somewhere close to a hundred years worth of the communications of the world.” Binneycontinues, “Once you accumulate that kind of data – they’re accumulating against everybody – [its]resident in programs that can pull it together in timelines and things like that and let them see into yourlife.” It is also noteworthy that this interview was conducted by the very aggressive former-New York state Governor Eliot Spitzer, who was brought down in a call girl scandal, where unknown government surveillance techniques were used against him.

  • The New York Times Admits That Virtually EveryMajor News Organization Allows The News To BeCensored By Government OfficialsThe American DreamIn one of the most shocking articles that the New York Times has ever put out, a New York Timesreporter has openly admitted that virtually every major mainstream news organization allowsgovernment bureaucrats and campaign officials to censor their stories. For example, almostevery major news organization in the country has agreed to submit virtually all quotes fromanyone involved in the Obama campaign or the Romney campaign to gatekeepers for "quoteapproval" before they will be published. If the gatekeeper in the Obama campaign does not wanta certain quote to get out, the American people will not see it, and the same thing applies to theRomney campaign. The goal is to keep the campaigns as "on message" as possible and to avoidgaffes at all cost. But this kind of thing is not just happening with political campaigns.According to the New York Times, "quote approval" has become "commonplace throughoutWashington". In other words, if you see a quote in the newspaper from someone in the federalgovernment then it is safe to say that a gatekeeper has almost certainly reviewed that quote andhas approved it. This is another sign that "the free and independent media" in this country is ajoke. What we get from the mainstream media is a very highly filtered form of propaganda, and
  • that is one reason why Americans are turning away from the mainstream media in droves.People want the truth, and more Americans than ever realize that they are not getting it from themainstream media.The following quote comes from the recent article in the New York Times mentioned above and it isabsolutely jaw dropping.... The quotations come back redacted, stripped of colorful metaphors, colloquial language and anything even mildly provocative. They are sent by e-mail from the Obama headquarters in Chicago to reporters who have interviewed campaign officials under one major condition: the press office has veto power over what statements can be quoted and attributed by name. Most reporters, desperate to pick the brains of the president’s top strategists, grudgingly agree. After the interviews, they review their notes, check their tape recorders and send in the juiciest sound bites for review. The verdict from the campaign — an operation that prides itself on staying consistently on script — is often no, Barack Obama does not approve this message.This is an article that everyone needs to read. If you have not read it yet, you can find it right here.What all of this means is that both the Obama campaign and the Romney campaign essentially have"veto power" over any quotes from those campaigns that we see in the newspapers. According to the New York Times, virtually every major news organization has agreed to submit their quotes for "quote approval".... It was difficult to find a news outlet that had not agreed to quote approval, albeit reluctantly. Organizations like Bloomberg, The Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Reuters and The New York Times have all consented to interviews under such terms. This is absolutely disgusting, and it goes against everything that our media is supposed to stand for. The following is what Joseph Farah had to say when he learned about this story.... All I can say about these people I once considered “colleagues” is that I am so ashamed of them. I am mortified. They are
  • humiliating themselves and a vital institution for any free society. It seems the biggest threat to the American tradition of a free and independent press is not government coercion. It’s the willing submission of the press to being handled and managed by government and politicians.Keep in mind that Joseph Farah has been working inthe world of journalism for decades. He is deeplysaddened to see what is happening to a professionthat he deeply loves.But he is not the only one.Just check out what Dan Rather had to say during aspeech back in 2009.... “At my age and stage Ive finally reached the point where I dont have to kiss up to anybody,” he said. “What a wonderful feeling it is.” Even so, his talk emphasized what he believes is the erosion of quality journalism, because of the corporatization, politicization, and “trivialization” of news. Those three factors, Rather argued, have fueled the “dumbing down and sleezing up of news” and the decline of “great American journalism.” Likening media consolidation to that of the banking industry, Rather claimed that “roughly 80 percent” of the media is controlled by no more than six, and possibly as few as four, corporations.And Dan Rather is right. The control over the media in the United States is more tightly concentratedthan ever before.Back in the early 1980s, approximately 50 corporations essentially had nearly total control of the mediain the United States.Today, just six monolithic media corporations dominate virtually everything you watch, hear and read. These six gigantic corporations own television networks, publishing houses, movie studios, newspapers, radio stations, music labels and video game companies. Most Americans are absolutely addicted to information and entertainment, and those six massive corporations supply the vast majority of the information and entertainment that Americans take in. The amount of control that those six corporate giants have is absolutely incredible. For example, the average American watches 153 hours of television a month. If you can beam 153 hours of "programming" into someones head each month, that gives you an awesome amount of influence over that person.
  • The six monolithic corporations mentioned above are TimeWarner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Rupert Murdochs NewsCorp., CBS Corporation and NBC Universal.There are some areas of the media that are not completelydominated by those corporations, but even control overthose areas is becoming more highly concentrated thanever.For example, Clear Channel now owns over 1000 radiostations across the United States. The power that ClearChannel has over the radio industry in America isabsolutely staggering.Even control over the Internet is becoming much moreconcentrated. Giant corporations such as Facebook,Google, Yahoo and Microsoft are increasingly controlling what we see and hear online.But it really is the "big six" that dominate most of what we see, hear and read on a daily basis.In a previous article, I detailed a portion of the vast media holdings of these gigantic corporations....--------------------------------------------------Today, six colossal media giants tower over all the rest. Much of the information in the chart belowcomes from mediaowners.com.

It only contains a sampling of the companiesthat those six corporate giants own.So are you starting to get an idea of how powerful they are?If you ever wondered why the version of "the news" that you get is so similar no matter where youturn, it is because control of the news is concentrated in just a very few hands.So who controls the "big six" media corporations?Would it surprise you to know that the boards of directors of those big media corporations have atremendous amount of overlap with the boards of directors of large banks, large oil companies andlarge pharmaceutical companies?The following is from the Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting website.... Media corporations share members of the board of directors with a variety of other large corporations, including banks, investment companies, oil companies, health care and pharmaceutical companies and technology companies.You can find a list that shows how these boards of directors overlap and interlock right here.The giant media corporations are not going to criticize the establishment because they are theestablishment.The messages that these media behemoths pound into our heads are going to be the messages that theestablishment wants pounded into our heads.
  • Anyone that believes that the mainstream media is "independent" and that it does not have "an agenda"is being delusional.Of course it is also worth mentioning that much of what we get from the mainstream media is alsooften directly controlled by the federal government.Former Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein (of Woodward and Bernstein fame) has discoveredthat hundreds of American journalists have worked directly for the CIA.Not that the federal government and the establishment are opposed to one another. The truth is thatthey very much work together hand in hand. But sometimes the federal government has slightlydifferent priorities than the corporate establishment does.In any event, the key point to take away from all this is that the news and entertainment that we allenjoy on a daily basis if very highly censored and very highly controlled.It is imperative that we understand that those that own and control the media are trying to shape societyin a certain way. They want to impose their values and their vision of the future on all the rest of us.You will notice that none of the major news organizations speak out against the "Big Brother" policestate control grid that is going in all around us.Instead, they insist that all of this added "security" will keep us safe even as our liberties and freedomsare being badly eroded.You will notice that none of the major news organizations speak out against the population controlagenda of the global elite.Instead, they insist that more "family planning" will help the environment and make the world a moreprosperous place for all of us.You will notice that none of the major news organizations speak out against the Federal Reserve andnone of them are warning us about the financial collapse that is rapidly approaching.Instead, they tell us to keep having faith in the system and they promise us that everything is going tobe okay.Well, you can mindlessly believe the corporate media if you want, but I believe that in this day and ageit is absolutely imperative that we all learn to think for ourselves.Dont be a mindless robot for anyone.Think for yourself and make your own decisions.The truth is out there and you can find it if you are willing to go search for it. http://www.infowars.com/The Declaration of independence of The United States Audio Book Belowhttp://free.yudu.com/item_files/441611/e8a89a83e/Declaration_of_independence_of_The_United_States.mp3
