You Will Never Hear These Truths Discussed In The Mainstream

By Brandon Smith

The general public truly lives in two separate worlds. We have the world of the mainstream media, popular culture and political rhetoric; a world which constantly and desperately seeks to twist or destroy any legitimate measure of reality, leading people into a frenzied fog. Then, we have the world of concrete facts; an ugly, brutal world that upsets many people when they see it and leaves them with little more than the hope that the most innovative of us will perhaps reverse the disastrous course, or at least, survive to carry on a meaningful level of civilization.

The sad thing is, if a majority of the population studied and accepted the world of fact, then preparation and intelligent or aggressive action might negate any destructive outcome. Reality only grows more ugly because we continue to ignore it.

Have you ever come to a logical or practical conclusion in response to a national or global problem and waited in vain to hear it represented in the mainstream? Have you ever thought — if I can figure this out, why can’t they? And by “they,” I mean the people most commonly offered a mainstream platform. This includes so called “professional journalists,” political leaders, mainstream economists, highly paid “analysts,” etc. Well, I think more and more Americans in particular are finally considering the notion that these “professionals” are either not very smart, or they have an agenda that seeks to perpetuate the problem rather than fix the problem.

Yes, the intellectual class, the longtime gatekeepers of public thought and consent, are actually mostly morons and/or liars with a terrible purpose in mind. I understand that this does not come as a surprise to many of my readers, but remember, the masses are still trapped in a stupefying fog. The goal here is to bring just a few more of them out of the doldrums whenever possible.

In the meantime, they are being fed one dishonest narrative after another, and there are certain truths, suggestions, solutions and philosophies they will never stumble across in their daily lives. Here are just a few questions and ideas on very specific mainstream events and propaganda memes which just don’t seem to receive the light of day.

The Healthcare Bill Debacle

If you happen to take note of stock market reactions to legislative events, you may have observed that equities recently suffered a swift sidekick to the solar plexus (read the section on stocks below as to why this matters little). This is, according to the mainstream, due to the failure of the Trump administration’s Obamacare repeal efforts. The first assumption here is that stock markets exploded higher after Trump’s election win purely because the investment world was placing bets that Trump would ram through tax cuts and pro-business legislation within his first year. The second assumption is that because Trump’s first piece of major legislation, the repeal of Obamacare, has failed, he will not be able to achieve any of his other stated goals, including tax cuts.

There are perhaps some minor truths within this narrative. A repeal of Obamacare might have helped free up billions in capital which could have been used for Trump’s infrastructure programs among other things. With the health care act still bleeding Americans dry and overextending the expenses of government, that border wall is looking a little less likely right now. Unless, of course, taxes remain the same or even increase in the near term.

My question is, why isn’t anyone in the mainstream questioning why a “new” healthcare bill was necessary at all? What was the point of this debacle? To marginally shift Obamacare so that it still exists but with reduced funding? Why not just get rid of the damn thing completely? That is what people voted Trump in for.

Instead of chasing a pointless piece of legislation through Congress trying to make every special interest happy, why won’t Trump simply remove enforcement of the Obamacare tax? It is, after all, a perfect example of taxation of without representation. If businesses and individuals no longer had to worry about the fines for not paying into Obamacare, then most of them would not voluntarily pay for it. Thus, Obamacare would be defunded naturally. It seems to me that the most obvious solution to the problem is being completely ignored in the mainstream.

Russian Hackers And Political Influence

This narrative just refuses to die, and the only point I can see to it so far is that it is a way for establishment elites to keep the political left constantly agitated. The left becomes more and more insane in their rhetoric and behavior exactly because the mainstream continues to perpetuate the rationale that Trump is “not really president.” Think about it — the left was already hurtling towards the madness of full-blown communism, but in order to reach a crescendo of schizophrenic violence, they need a little more psychological justification. If they can be convinced that Trump is now a “Russian agent,” they have all the justification they need to take their mob actions to the next level.

Just one problem — why is no one in the mainstream asking for the evidence that supposedly proves that Trump’s campaign was influenced by the Russian government? I keep hearing it exists, but where is it? The media is more than willing to demand hard evidence that the Trump team was being electronically tapped by the Obama administration; but so far there is more evidence coming to light of Obama wiretapping than evidence that Trump is working for the Russians.

Beyond this, as far as the Russian “hacking” of the DNC during the election is concerned, why is no one presenting the most important point — that point being, WHO CARES who actually hacked the DNC? It does not matter. What matters is that extreme corruption was found, along with regular collusion between the Clinton campaign and the media. It is the corruption that people should be up in arms about, NOT the hacking.

Clinton Corruption

Why are the Clintons still running around free? Why is no one talking about prosecution anymore? This question is for Trump, of course. Now, I predicted post election that Trump would indeed abandon all talk of Hillary Clinton going to prison almost immediately, but I would like to hear his argument as to why this should no longer be pursued.

Stock Market Relevancy

Why do mainstream economists hyper focus on the stock market? The stock market is nothing more than a trailing indicator of economic decline, and is ultimately irrelevant to the bigger fiscal picture. Yet, the health of the economy is almost always first tied to stock market performance (and to unemployment numbers which are also highly manipulated).

If stocks are in complete reversal by June/July as I predicted right after the election in my article ‘World Suffers From Trump Shellshock — Here’s What Happens Next’, does this mean that the economy is finally considered “in decline?”  Or, does it mean that the economy has been in steady decline for years and only now is the stock market reflecting that reality?

Also, why do people still listen to mainstream economists? They are almost always wrong, and alternative economists are almost always right. Shouldn’t these supposed “professionals” be out of a job by now?

Illegal Immigration

Why is enforcement of existing immigration laws, laws which have been a standard for decades, such a divisive issue? Most countries in the world have stringent immigration laws, why is it that America is not allowed to enforce similar laws? Why does the left in particular consider the removal of illegal immigrants representative of “racism” or “fascism?” I realize they are mostly insane, but I would just like to hear one valid and practical argument from them as to why the U.S. specifically should be saddled with wide open borders and why American conservatives in particular are racist merely for demanding that the current laws be followed?

I don’t want to hear nonsensical mainstream arguments about how we are a “nation of immigrants.” We are NOT a nation of immigrants. I was born here. Most of us were born here. Our ancestors settled here and built this nation from nothing. This nation is established now and has been for generations. Times change and we don’t need a flood of random immigrants. If anything, we need highly selective immigration of only the best and brightest and most skilled from around the world.

Illegal immigration is not a debate. There is no logical reason to defend it, unless your goal is to overwhelm the American system with potential democrat voters or to completely destabilize the country altogether. Why are we still arguing about this?

The Mainstream Media Is Dying

The bastion guardian of all that is “mainstream,” the arbiter of who is “fake news” and who is “real news,” is actually in rapid decline, but you will never hear them admit it publicly. Many alternative media outlets are crushing the readership and viewership numbers of many mainstream media publications and shows, but much of the public still clings to the faulty concept that there is a particular level of “professionalism” that goes into the production of these narrative peddlers. We have been brainwashed with stories of “journalistic integrity” that lead us to consider media a higher calling. This is, of course, pure garbage.

As was made fully evident this past election, there is absolutely no integrity whatsoever in the journalistic field. There are only people with agendas and people who whore themselves out for people with agendas. That’s it. You may find a few honest souls on the conservative side of the media apparatus, but in large part, journalism is like a Vegas brothel.

Unfortunately, our society is in a period of transition in which the public is skeptical of mainstream media influences, but still pays attention to them. While people are rapidly abandoning these “news sources” for more independent fair, this may be too little too late. As I have outlined above, there are numerous questions which are never asked; numerous solutions that are never presented. The majority remains oblivious to practical options and practical actions. They remain oblivious to certain truths. The mainstream may have already done all the damage it can do. All that is left is for alternative analysts to pick up the pieces, ask the right questions, fight for the right causes and see if we can salvage this mess in time.

      Most of the writers at VT are pro Clinton i.e. Satanism…

        Ya I think Duff is a Clinton guy but Satanist – No Fn way – they don’t like the Khazarian Mafia or Babylon Tela-mud pedofiles.

        • Reggin Mudd

          I never mentioned any ” Duff ” guy. You sure think a lot of yourself if you think you can read my mind…

  • Rog

    Yes, all of those things are just below the surface. Now, let’s take a look at the root cause. A monetary system based on debt, which necessitated a legal jurisdiction that never existed before in this country called “statutory.” Which is a jurisdictional system based on commercial paper thanks to the banking system. Which necessitated a way to interact with real, live men and women. That is, the legal NAME, created by the birth certificate, which is really just the name or number, if you will, of a cestui que trust that was created to “hold” the value of your labor which was pledged as surety for the debts that governments inevitably accrue. You think Hillary is corrupt? Just dive into this and see what real corruption is.

    • rahrog

      You are so right about the banking system being the root cause of so many of mankind’s current problems.

      If people would just look behind the curtain they would see the truth.

      • G’ma G

        Here’s a simple example of a look behind the curtain even sheeple will understand:
        Traffic courts are never fully funded (easy to verify by a look at the budget) so in order to get paid the judges have to find people guilty and fine them. In other words, your innocence doesn’t matter to the judge, his pay check does.

      • Common Sense

        While the banking system is corrupt it is NOT the real root of the problem.
        It is the evil and GREED that drives the PEOPLE behind it.
        If we rid ourselves of the crooked banking system ALONE, those behind it would still be free to find a different venue.

        • rahrog

          Right. We cannot change human nature. However, that does not mean that people should surrender to a criminal (or evil) enterprise.

          The federal government, and The Federal Reserve (which owns fedgov), are engaged in crimes against humanity.

          In order to cut the head off the snake of evil, people must take down the central bank.

    • Brindle Dane

      Excellent point Rog! Would you consider writing an article and seeing if Activist Post would publish it? This is, after all, the nucleus of this cancer.

  • Joe Blow

    Brandon, good stuff. Loved the point that we are NOT a nation of immigrants.

    Might add to the list: The Fukushima life extinction event in progress; the continued use of Corexit on the still leaking gulf oil spill; GWEN towers; the military weather mod program in place using toxic chemtrails and HAARP.

    • Veri Tas

      Not an immigrant nation?! How did white man and black slaves get there? How did the Irish, the Italians and Germans, the Dutch, etc.?

      • Joe Blow

        We are a nation of “citizens,” not immigrants, we were born here.

  • Brandon : “….I think more and more Americans in particular are finally considering the notion that these “professionals” are either not very smart, or they have an agenda that seeks to perpetuate the problem rather than fix the problem….”

    Brandon lives also in this Statist dream world like other “Americans” and those “professionals”.
    Brandon himself and all “professionls” ARE SMART people….and as everyone is HALUCINATING he is living in this “great, great, great American system”.

    This is because the vast majority of our world view is not formed by our own personal experiences with “facts”. It is formed by what we have been told. Told about history, science, politics, current events, and on and on. The world is presented to us through education and the media.
    The world is presented as a place where “things just happen”. People are told that the legal system is “the best in the world”. People are led to believe that the system “may have a bad apple”, or there may be some “mistakes made now and then”, but “the system still works the vast majority of the time”. But when you actually look at what happens, it never adds up. The rules we are given don’t seem to work very well in the game of life.
    People see crooks getting ahead. People see politicians lying and being re-elected. They see proposals that don’t seem to make much sense being adopted, or they see what they think are good proposals getting implemented in a way that isn’t working. And they think the answer is to “get someone else into office”, or to “get a better plan” or to pass a new law etc. etc.

    But the SYSTEM isn’t broken. The system is working just as it is intended to work. People misunderstand what the system is designed to do.

    The system is fundamentally different from how it is presented. Once you grasp the full import of that concept, all of the questions and confusion, all of the frustrations, all of the questioning about why the democrats don’t do this, or why the republicans don’t do that, or why the Supreme court did this, or why doesn’t the EPA or FDA do this or that or not do this or that can be resolved. Until then, people will live in a confused state, in a DREAM.

    • Paul Mitchell

      “People believe what they are told not what they see” ‘….and people see what they believe not what is.’

    • Common Sense

      Agreed, but denial will only take a person so far. The truth always finds a way to surface regardless of what we think, feel or believe.
      A tree still makes noise in a forest when it falls regardless of no one being there to hear it.
      One of our problems is that many in the middle will abandon truth and reason to adopt the popular view so they fit in. The whole group think thing. The evil pied pipers have found ways to teach the herd to censor itself. (Its easier to have someone else think FOR YOU, so then you don’t have to take the responsibility)
      But the truth is still leaking out and those who still think and reason see it.

  • Paul Panza

    This is just another libertarian hack piece as the the so called left is never identified and this writer does not want to give up on the theme that capitalism is still a good rant. The mainstream is definitely lying as that is what the corporate owners pay them to do; that is why we never here stories like “jesus” never existed or “there is no god”. The alternative media is no better than mainstream as it has no focus other than to create for fear.

  • Darkwing

    Wake the frell up: if the Clinton’s are ever taken in an convicted, then Berry, Bush 1 & 2, Reagan, will all suffer. Of course Reagan is dead but if the truth came out about him, it would be a good thing, then the American sheeple will not look at him like a god, the same that they look at Tramp

  • sallyM

    IMO the only people that believe the entertaining MSM are the lambs that lay at their feet.
    To the vast majority it is clear the MSM has a bias and an agenda.
    It is my hope they implode and the lambs will awake and start laughing at the entertainment, then turn it off.
    Throw out the boob tube that now spies on you.

  • madrino

    USA corp, a division of UK/French/Dutch judeofreemsonry inc. , have always lied to the people. Daniel Shays rebellion and Whiskey rebellion were just a couple of several rebellions soon after the American “revolution” exposing the new government to be even more depraved than the monarchies as governments went (East and West Indies) corporate. This goes back to the great lies of Plato and the noble lie to befuddle the people, and the mind crushing evil of “Israel” and the stolen concepts of ancient Egypt along with the creation of their talmud (sickest dogma in the history of mankind), David and Solomon and their connection to the occult is without ANY doubt. The actions of the US today are the most evil in the history of mankind, poisoning all life on the planet in the water we drink, food we eat and air we breath. The US military, intel agencies through the presidency are surrounded by symbols showing them for what they truly are, diabolical instruments of death. Statue of Liberty? Think again – Semiramis/Ashtoreth/Ishtar/Isis. The pentagon the inverted pentagram, navel intelligence in Coronado, Ca the Swastika, (see vigilentcitizen’s sinister cities site as a start).

    It’s past time for new management.

  • n’awlins

    One adjustment to the russian angle. NOT the russians, but the russian mafia. Interesting how the MSM can change the whole angle of reporting by leaving out one word.

  • Harlock

    I really think the Russians were involved in hacking the election. The actual hacking was probably done by agents of the DNC who covered their tracks by using VPN’s that ran through servers located in Russia. It’s a great way to shift the blame when dealing with people who are ignorant of the way the internet works.

    • AngB

      The problem with the Russia angle what we’ve learned is TRUE…is the CIA can leave ANY finger print they want. So, that makes that suspect in my book. 3 states had MULTIPLE “attempted” hacks into their voter registration by….the DHS! The DNC server “hack” wasn’t investigated by the FBI because they hired CrowdStrike who “said” it was Russia…but they just RETRACTED that statement because they know it’s false. CrowdStrike has ties to the Atlantic Council who’ve been PUSHING to restart the Cold War with Russia. There is a huge “Russia” angle that’s been created not due to evidence but I think…to try and deflect attention from REAL crimes within our government that must be investigated, exposed and prosecuted! The fear of “draining the swamp” and being exposed.

      We know Obama interfered with at least 2 foreign countries elections. We have states who were attempted to be hacked by a US government department, the DHS. We had a now ex POTUS giving a taped interview telling illegal aliens to “vote, we won’t catch you”. The only one we know who tried to hack and influence our Presidential election was Obama. Beyond that, ALL governments spy on each other. They always have and always will.

  • Luther R. Norman

    If people were willing to take a look at things from another point of view, they would see the lies raining down everyday — this is how one stirs up chaos with deception. If one notices the official story keeps changing in an effort to shift the blame on to a variety of targets (for example, you burned the toast this morning so your toaster was hacked by Russians!). This must keep being done to keep the deception going and new wars are already being planned! What an interesting time to live in, eh?

  • Veri Tas

    Well, which is it?

    “We are NOT a nation of immigrants.”

    or

    “We need highly selective immigration of only the best and brightest and most skilled from around the world.”

    So, a nation of immigrants, after all.

    Sad to see that war, political and economic refugees – which the US with its cancerous spread of perpetual warfare on foreign soil – has engendered in the first place are being redubbed immigrants when they’re really refugees.

    A nation which closes its heart to refugees is an inhumane one indeed.

    This has nothing to do with immigration laws – I agree that those are legitimate regulations in place. This is about a bully nation refusing to acknowledge the terror it wages around the globe and make amends.

  • Ben

    Two facts for consideration that I’ve noted recently. Not sure how much truth or fact there lies in it but it has been suggested, the Pentagon cannot account for 10 trillion dollars. I perceive too the debt of the United States is roughly 20 trillion dollars. Consider these two facts if there is even any shred of credibility to them. How is it the Pentagon is not audited, held to account. Why was it allowed to tally up half our debt?

    Quite a while back it was stated the United States had enough nuclear arsenal to obliterate the globe 400 times over. Our military funding is alleged to be roughly 600 percent times more than all other nations combined. All this supreme military force yet for all of it our soldiers defend nothing but a pile of shit. That’s all that remains once all of us starve away, die from epidemics, die from negligence, die from poverty, are killed off by a eugenics pipe dream to create a pure race. Yes that dream, or rather nightmare still exists and is still obviously being enacted.

    I’m probably looking at it all quite skewed. Take my opinion or not as you feel it warrants.

  • Janet Phelan

    This article is promoting a false left right paradigm, a left right conflict, which should be a subject of the expose. We the people seem to have a very short span of attention, as fashion swings from left to right and back again. Both sides serve the same master and until that is fully absorbed, we will be bouncing back and forth like little marionettes.
