What Chuck Schumer Is Revealing Out In The Open

By Jon Rappoport

Senator Chuck Schumer on MSNBC: “We’re no longer fact-based. The founding fathers created a country based on fact. We don’t have a fact base. If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.”

First of all, in Schumer’s opening sentence, who is this “we”? There is an implication that the “we” is somehow monolithic and centralized. But people have been in disagreement about facts and what they mean since the dawn of time. People have rejected centralized sources of facts, from kings and queens and priests, to newspapers and television news.

In the same way that 99% of economists assume society must be planned and centralized, Schumer and “the people in power” assume media must operate as a centralized force—as if it’s a natural law.

They just assume it, because until recently, it was the case, it was cozy and easy. But not now. And they’re angry and shocked. They see their foundation of propaganda and mind control slipping away.

You must appreciate how secure they used to feel. It was a cake walk, a picnic in the park. The definition of “fact” was: whatever centralized media said it was. What could be simpler? And to them, that was “democracy.”

Feed the people lies, hide deeper truth, slam dunk.

Then along came independent media.


It turned out millions of people were interested.

The cat jumped out of the bag.

I know about this. I’ve been letting cats out of bags since 1982.

That’s longer than some of my readers have been alive.

I also know about censorship, because almost from the beginning of my work as a reporter, I had stories turned down by major media outlets and even alternative outlets. I saw the handwriting on the wall.

Chuck Schumer is echoing what many of his colleagues—and far more powerful people—are worrying about. Their vaunted mouthpieces, the NY Times, the Washington Post, etc., are failing. They can’t carry the same old freight with impunity.

So Schumer “worries about the future of democracy.” What he’s actually worried about has nothing to do with democracy, and it certainly has nothing to do with a Republic, which was the form of this nation from the beginning.

Schumer is worried about decentralization.

He’s worried that people are defecting from the authoritarian arrogant Castle of Truth.

And, given his position, he should be worried.

Secret blueprint for surviving the economic collapse (Ad)

We are at a tipping point. Needless to say—but I will say it—independent media need your support. Your choice about where you obtain your news makes a difference.

Until a few years ago, I never considered that I was relentless. I was just doing my work. But as I saw the counter-efforts of major media, social media, government, Globalists, and other players, as they tried to reassert their primacy, I found a deeper level of commitment. A person can find many reasons to stop what he is doing. Every person eventually realizes that. But will he give in? Or will he decide to keep going? My choice is reflected on these pages, where I write every day.

Many of my colleagues have made the same choice. As for myself, I take the long, long view. Whatever befalls this civilization, the individual survives. He cannot be erased. I know that as surely as I know I am sitting here.

People like Chuck Schumer are living on a foundation of sand. Their power depends on obfuscation and deception and exchanging favors. When they feel the ground shifting under their feet, they growl and accuse and declaim and resort to fake ideals. If they see their con isn’t working and isn’t selling, then they panic.

Which is a good sign.

Many, many years ago, I had a good relationship with a media outlet. Then one day, the man in charge told me I was “positioning myself” outside the scope of his audience. I was speaking to “different people,” and therefore I should “go my own way.” I could tell he wasn’t happy about saying this, because he thought of himself as an independent, but there it was. He was bending to the demands of “his people.” So we parted company.

I was now further “out there” than I had been before. I was “independent of an ‘independent’ media outlet.” It took me about five minutes to see the joke. A good and useful joke.

As the years rolled on, I kept finding myself in a more independent position, which meant I was writing what I wanted to write, and in the process I was discovering deeper levels of what I wanted to write.

Understanding this changed my political view. If I didn’t stand for the free and independent individual, what did I stand for? If I didn’t keep coming back to THAT, what could I come back to?

It made sense to me then, and it makes sense to me now.

This is why I keep writing about collective, the group, the mass, and the generality, those fake representations of life.

The individual is always free, whether he knows it or not. And therefore, he can choose.

This is what the Chuck Schumers of this world vaguely apprehend on the horizon. They can’t believe what they’re seeing; it’s too horrible a prospect. They reject it as a fantasy. A random nightmare.

But it isn’t a random nightmare.

It’s the potential for an open future.



Back from obscurity.

Back from the late 18th century, when the ideas embedded in the Constitution reflected the desire to unleash the free and independent individual and afford him protection from the powers-that-be.

  1. Smarmy [ˈsmärmē] ADJECTIVE – Chuck Schumer

  2. So according to Schumer, the NYT has an exclusivity in the presenting of what are regarded as facts (credibility) and Breitbart or any other alternative news source doesn’t?? The reason Breitbart wins the credibility challenge seems to be obvious to everyone except poor Chuck here. And that’s because the NYT has proven itself to be a venue for FAKE NEWS and on more than one occasion. Anyway, I’m continually amazed on how this…left wing crook gets re-elected like he does but then again that’s …New York where brain-power from politicians is indeed rare.

  3. Maybe Chuck Schumer should talk about his Draconian anti libel anti criticism of Israel anti-free speech legislation that he sponsored in New York state? Maybe Chuck Schumer should talk about his abhorrence for the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America while he’s also screaming and kvetching about multiculturalism in its fall.

  4. Thank God that every generation children are born anew, and have to be introduced (indoctrinated?) into the contemporary Zeitgeist view of the world. That is the moment in every individual’s life when they are faced with the “because of WHAT???” question of their foundational ideology. How do we know that is really right? Are we sure that it is right? In every generation it is our individual responsibility to figure it out for ourself. Don’t buy into the “received wisdom” handed down through your grandparents. If we don’t check the veracity of our received dogma for ourselves, we have only ourselves to blame when we pass on bad dogma to our children.

  5. I saw a bunch of stories a month ago naming Schumer and several others as a pedophile. Those stories are still on the search engines. Has that issue been resolved?

    • Resolved? As in a fake authority like Snopes disproving Schumer’s alleged pedophilia? Surely you don’t mean has Chuckie’s illness been resolved, as that’s a lifelong commitment.

      Schumer is pretty close to the top of the food chain, so whatever his crimes are, they’re likely to remain hidden. My guess is that he likes to order from his favorite ‘pizza’ joint a couple times a week, but he usually has ‘pasta.’ He and Boehner have that same twinkle in their eyes, if you’ve ever noticed. So does Poppy Bush for that matter.

        And don’t forget Creepy Joe Biden. I think they’re all pedos like it’s some sort of prerequisite for holding public office.

        • Yep, Uncle Joe strikes me as more of a typical pol–a garden-variety perv, kind of like W.C. Fields, who, when told he didn’t seem to like children, was said to have replied, “sure I like children–girl children around 18 or 20.” We can probably notch that down five or six years for Joe.

        • It is what their lord requires of them.

    • To the best of my knowledge, his office has not denied that Schumer is a pedophile. I am not aware that the accounts of Schumer’s pedophilia have been substantiated. So far as I know the issue of Schumer’s pedophilia is not resolved.

  6. Media Matters is a joke, along with all MSM snowflakes, key word is flakes.
    Turn off the boob tube.
    MSM is dead.
    Learn to Discern.

  7. Schumer is a 911 terrorist before or after the fact. Then he helped sell bogus wars that further weakened our nation and has flooded our country with immigrants. He is a war criminal and traitor more loyal to Israel than his own country.

  8. Facts, with a dose of bigotry. White is right.

  9. Just watch the video of schmucky chucky sneering at the victims of Waco in the congressional hearings, if you want to see the demon which possesses him show itself.

  10. One of GW Bush’s neocon followers once said “We are an empire and empires make their own reality”! What this ideological personage conveniently forgot, is that manufactured reality runs smack into a wall of independent media which destroys its lies. Thank the Lord for the alternative information available to every man, woman and child in the Western World. Without it, we would be held subject to more and more lies and deceit!

  11. This is what I live for, to be an individual to owe no one and for no one to owe me. There used to be a eword for this state, I believe it was ADULT.

  12. That’s the problem with Collectivism, who decides the ‘greater good’.
    Truth, is the greater good.

  13. That was nice ??Please help us “targeted individuals” tortured by US patented electronic weaponry daily?Thank you.
