The “Liberal Media”

Found on the Net:

90+% of the US media is owned by six right-wing corporations

I am sick and tired of this “liberal media” crap. All conservatives believe the insanity that the media is “liberal.” It’s not liberal. They’re corporate rightwingers. They support the 1%. Hell, they are the 1%’. They’re against the rest of us, the 99%. They pursue their class interests and brainwash we 99%’ers into opposing our own class interests and instead supporting the class interests of the 1%’ers. How long do we have to drum it into people’s heads. There is no liberal media. There is no liberal media. There is no liberal media.

Has there ever been a liberal media? In any capitalist country, almost all of the media ends up being owned by the richest of the rich, the very elite of the ruling class, or large corporations. The ruling class elite and corporate owners then traditionally use their press control to promote their class interests and attack the class interests of the vast majority of the rest of the populations, as they might be expected to do. That’s why the press in most capitalist countries is some sort of a joke. That’s why there’s never any freedom of speech under capitalism because 100% of the speech outlets are owned by 1% of the population and 0% of the speech outlets are owned by 99% of the population.

Knowing this, that conservatives rail on and on about the liberal media is apparently evidence of the fact that they are deranged. Or perhaps segments of the press, while obviously pursing rightwing corporate interests, are nevertheless less conservative than your average wingnut and hence are seen as “liberal.” Who knows? Who cares?

But really, progressive people need to stop believing in this. We even have liberals on this very board who insist that the media is “liberal” and offer up the Jew York Times as evidence of a “liberal paper.” These people need to actually read the JYT sometimes. Guess what? In many very important ways, it is not the slightest bit liberal. The JYT pushed extremely hard to that awful TIPP free trade pact. What sort of liberal pushes for such a monstrosity? A “Barack Obama liberal?” Well, maybe, but a Barack Obama liberal isn’t even really a liberal.

Endless Lies about the Financial Crash of 2008

Jason Y writes:

More like Wall Street greed, when looking at the 2007 meltdown. I did some research, and it seems like the derivatives market (insurance for stocks) exploded, However, it was Clinton who softened rules controlling the derivatives market, and also set into motion another law which allowed banks to invest ordinary people’s money.

How do Jews play into this? I don’t see them anywhere, no more than other greedy people who are cashing checks their asses can’t cash. That’s what it boils down to, investors are being protected by the government so they can play monopoly all they want. However, if they fuck up, taxpayers have to pay, and they did in 2007.

The derivatives market did not crash in 2007, not that it isn’t completely insane and ought to probably be shut right down.

And nowhere does the post mention Jews. Sure there are lots of Jews on Wall Street and in Finance Capital, but there are also many, many Gentiles there working right alongside of them. Anyway, the Jews haven’t run the world’s banks for 80 years. At one point, the Jews did have major control over the world banking system or at least the European Banking System. However that all ended, and by 1945, I assure you that the Jews did not run the world’s banks anymore, nor did they even run European banks. Something called the Holocaust happened, almost all of Europe’s Jews were killed, and a side effect of this was that the Jewish European banking monopoly was ended.

I recently did some research and while the Jews do have a few banks, it seems that most of the world’s banks are now run by Gentiles. Major nations for banking are the US, the UK, France and Germany. Jews own very few of these banks, particularly in Europe. Also large banks in Asia are starting to play a huge role in world banking, mostly operating out of Singapore and Hong Kong. Japanese banks are also important.

My conclusion from that research was that whether or not the Jews more or less ran much of the world banking system at one point, and they may well have done so, they sure don’t run world banking anymore. So it really bothers me when people conflate the banksters with the Jews or blame Jews for the crimes of the banksters. It’s just not true and I will support any innocent party accused of deeds they did not do.

The crash was related not to the derivatives market but instead to mortgage lending practices and indeed Clinton loosening the law requiring the two types of banks to keep their operations separate was instrumental in this.

However, 100% of Republicans also supported getting rid of Glass-Steagal. Glass-Steagal was enacted in the Depression because the practices banned in Glass-Steagal were what caused the Wall Street Crash and subsequent Depression in the first place.

So of course they got rid of those regulations, which the banks had been screaming for decades to get rid of, and then there were also sorts of warning about what a horrible idea this was and how it could lead to another market crash. And exactly 15 years later, it did just that. Then after the market crashed as the sane people predicted it would, all the media and the Republicans started screaming and yelling that the crash was caused by things that had nothing to do with the crash, like:

  1. The crash was caused by too many regulations, not too few.
  2. The crash was caused by the government.
  3. The crash was caused by Blacks and Browns!
  4. The crash was caused by the evil liberal government forcing kind, sweet, loving, tender-hearted banksters to loan money to Blacks and Brown lowlifes for homes that the banks knew the Blacks and Brown slackers could not buy. The banksters didn’t want to loan money to these non-White dirtbags, but the evil liberal government forced them. This line has been pushed very strongly by the racist right and even some radical Republicans like Steve Sailor. American Renaissance has always claimed that this is what caused the crash.
  5. The crash was caused by too much government, not too little.
  6. The crash was caused by government institutions called Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, not the private sector banksters.
  7. The crash was caused by liberals and Democrats.

All of these are 100% lies made up by racists and Republicans to cover up for the fact that 100% of the crash was caused by getting rid of Glass-Steagal and subsequent loosening of regulations on the banksters.

Lie #4 in particular is a disgusting and despicable that tries to blame the victims of the banksters and other corporate criminals who committed crimes in order to victimize these innocent people.

There was also massive fraud and corruption on the part of the government and various organized crime cartels called “industries,” including the banksters, mortgage lending corporations like Countrywide, accounting agencies, insurance companies, and yes Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, who were in on the scam along with all the other criminals.

All of these groups committed an incredible amount of crime, mostly massive fraud. There were calls to arrest a lot of the top criminals at the head of these criminal industries, but quickly the Justice Department realized that they would have to put half of Wall Street in prison (an excellent idea if you ask me), so they nixed the idea and not one of these kingpins, organized crime leaders and super-criminals went to prison.

Also the government was very slow about re-regulating the industry to make sure this destructive idiocy did not occur again. This was caused by massive obstructionism on the part of the Republican. Also Barack Obankster has very close ties with Wall Street. The woman Barack chose to head up the new Finance Industry Regulation Board has gone very slow on all new regulations. She has been doing nothing but carrying water for Wall Street ever since she walked in the door. It’s no exaggeration to say she has been a catastrophe.

Do Communist Countries Fake Basic National Data?

Santo Culto writes:

Capitalist governments use stats to organize the social space based on their immediate demands.

What is the crime rate in Venezuela today?? Few people really know what is the real number.

And in Cuba??

And unemployment in Cuba??

Combine ”socialist” predisposition to falsify stats and third world vulnerabilities..

Rousseff government say unemployment is Brazil is just 6%… But sub-employment here is enormous. If ”socialists” are superior than capitalists, why they avoid honesty???

Venezuelan crime statistics are just fine. The homicide rate is the 3rd highest in the world, and the government acknowledges that fact. The crime rate figures for total crimes and single crimes are updated all the time and are available for anyone to see. Even the Opposition does not charge the Chavistas with lying about the crime rate.

The crime rate is low in Cuba. Especially violent crime is very low. Havana is the safest large city in Latin America.

The unemployment rate in Cuba has traditionally been ~3.1%, but most of that is usually frictional. Anti-Communist idiots (most Americans) typically reply to this comment with the insipid remark, “That’s because there’s nothing to steal in Cuba!” There’s always something to steal. There are plenty of things to steal in Cuba, there are plenty of people and places to rob, lots of women to rape and lots of people to kill too if that suits your fancy.

Tell, is there is more stuff to steal in a Venezuelan slum or in the capital of Haiti than there is in Cuba? There is way more to steal in Cuba than in either of those places. Very poor neighborhoods have all sorts of stuff to steal and theft is often epidemic in those places.

Anti-Communist morons (most Americans) always accuse Cuba of lying about their health figures among other things. No one has ever proven that Cuba falsified any of their stats regarding anything. In fact, Cuba’s health figures were reviewed by the UN and they were found to be completely accurate. Caloric intake went way down in the Special Period and petty crime, especially theft, went way up. Official figures reflect both of those negative trends.

Further, no one has ever proven that any Communist country ever falsified any stats ever on things like employment, health figures, housing figures, crime rates, etc. The health and education figures out of Cuba are immaculate, as were those from the USSR and China. Even North Korea’s health figures are very accurate.

I believe some Communist states may have issued some falsified data about political prisoners and political killings. North Korea may not have told us how many people died in a famine in the 1990’s. In other words, when lots of people die either from internal repression or famine, they may not give us completely accurate data. But the USSR logged every single death caused by internal repression such as executions, deaths in the gulags and deaths in the anti-kulak campaign in the Ukraine. The figures are widely considered to be completely accurate. The files were opened up in 1990 when the USSR broke up.

Communist countries are accused of lying all the time, but good hard data that they lied on their economic or health figures is sorely lacking. In fact it appears to be a false charge. I would be very interested to see data showing that other Communist countries falsified basic national data. The anti-Communists level this charge all the time, but they never proved it.

The Right and the Left in the West Both Hate Science

The Left likes to claim that the Right wages a war on science.

Well of course they do. Whenever a scientific study’s results are bad for the bottom line of the capitalists, obviously the facts are wrong once again we need to go make up some better facts. This is why science and capitalism are in serious conflict. Many to most “scientifically-based” government decisions are not based on science at all and in fact reject all known science on the matter as false. Instead they make up a completely new set of facts to base the decision on, a result that is in accord with politics. We see this in particular in environmental science. Endangered species are a catastrophic case. Political hacks who run the Fish and Wildlife Service are constantly rejecting the findings of all of their scientists and instead issuing completely false anti-scientific findings that are good for the capitalists but bad for the critter in question.

However the Left is profoundly antiscientific on PC matters. What this means is that whenever scientific study uncovers facts that may lead to racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or whatever the bullshit ism or phobia de jure is, the Left completely rejects the science and makes up a new false conclusion by inventing new facts. Even worse, the Left calls it “scientific racism” or some nonsense just because the facts didn’t come out right and the Left had to go in and readjust the facts so people’s feelings didn’t get hurt. Then they go on a jihad against the scientist and try to have him fired and his career ruined for uncovering “illegal facts.”

This is known as Scientific Fraud. However the Left engages in massive scientific fraud as does the Right.

The entire PC Left, Cultural Left, Cultural Marxist, SJW movement is engaging in scientific fraud on a massive scale. Further, they are punishing scientists for not coming up with the conclusions that have not been pre-approved by the Left Commissars.

The Free Market Is the Best System on Earth

Here.

These people are literally eating dirt because that is how poor and starving they are. But the free market works great. The system that doesn’t work is called Communism or socialism. The system that “works” is called free market capitalism. It’s working great in Haiti, isn’t it?

Aristide came in and raised the minimum wage. That was when the CIA said enough and plotted to overthrow him.

Then he tried to give every kid a glass of milk every day at school. That hardened America’s resolve even more. Haitians must eat dirt! We can’t have them drinking milk! Drinking milk? That’s Communism! Capitalism is about eating dirt! Aristide had to go. He was trying to feed his people! The nerve of that Commie!

The corporate media started up a propaganda war calling Aristide a Communist. Well obviously he was a Communist. Only a socialist would try to feed his own people! A capitalist would want them to eat dirt!

Then he started building schools. In his few years in office, Aristide built more schools in 8 years than had been built in the previous 188 years since Independence. The CIA said, “That does it! He’s building schools! This Commie has to go!” Of course he was a Commie. Only Commies build schools.

Capitalists don’t believe in schools. They think they should all be run by the free market as private education. I once surveyed the Republicans in the US Senate. Every single one of them,  even the most liberal Northeasterners like Specter and Stowe, were awful on Education. They voted No on every single Education bill. As you can see, Republicans don’t believe in Education. They send their kids to private schools. The hard truth of the matter is that US conservatives don’t believe in public education.

Every time capitalists or rightwingers take over a government, the first thing they start hacking and slashing away at is education. It’s number 1 on the chopping block.

During the Cultural Revolution, one of the great things they did was to build schools all over China, especially in the rural areas. Mostly they built elementary schools, to a lesser extent junior highs, and to an even lesser extent, high schools. That is why if you go out to rural China now, many people will praise the Cultural Revolution.

One more thing: During the Cultural Revolution, the economy grew by 10% a year.

Since Deng’s capitalist reforms, tens of thousands of the schools that were built during the Cultural Revolution were closed down. These are the reforms that everybody says are the greatest thing since sliced bread. What’s so great about the reforms? What’s so great about shuttering 90,000 schools?

Capitalist propaganda is a joke. It’s pitiful. Communism is a failed system that doesn’t work, but capitalist works perfectly. And any attempts to fix capitalism’s endless failures is called “socialism” and as we well know, socialism fails everywhere it is tried. So there is no way to even fix the free market’s countless deficiencies. We are stuck with them.

Why Was Saddam Removed and the Shia Installed?

asdasdaswrites:

Why Americans then removed Sunni Saddam from power and gave power to Shias.

Saddam was an enemy of Israel. The mostly Jewish neocons lied and made up a big story about how the Shia would love us for removing their enemy Saddam and about how they would be extremely pro-American and how they would be the most pro-American and pro-Israel state in the Middle East. I am not sure if they lied or if they really believed this idiocy. These people seem to believe a lot of the lunatic nonsense that they say. I suppose they think their own lies are true. They look at the world and see it as they want it to be, and then they say that this is how the world really is. They project their desires onto the world as reality. They are ideologues, so they are not capable of being rational.

Notice that all of the enemies of Israel are being removed.

  • Saddam, enemy of Israel: Removed, nation destroyed.
  • Assad, enemy of Israel: Project to remove him ongoing nation destroyed.
  • Gaddafi, enemy of Israel: Removed, nation destroyed.
  • Hezbollah, enemy of Israel: Many threats to get rid of them. Seen as one of America’s worst enemies, when the truth is they are only a danger to the Jews.
  • Iran, enemy of Israel: Multiple projects to harm and ruin this country are ongoing.

I suppose the message is if you are an enemy of Israel, the US military is going to remove you either on its own or with its baby Al Qaedas that the US keeps around to fight its enemies. Not only that, but your country will be completely destroyed.

It’s a pretty powerful message.

The point is that the US Deep State Gentiles are just as much in favor of this project as the US Jews are. So the Gentile Deep State has merged with the Jews. The enemies of the Jews are the enemies of America and vice versa. It’s an alliance.

The American Interest: Voice of the Deep State

Look at the masthead.

At first I thought it was run by neocon Jews, but I guess not. On the other hand, it might as well be. When it comes to US foreign policy, everyone’s Jewish. All the Gentiles are Jewish and all the Jews are Jewish. Everyone’s a neocon. So it really doesn’t matter if the Jews are in charge or not. The US Deep State, Israel and the Jews see eye to eye on everything. They are really all part of the same ball of wax.

I Am Basically a Liberal

Note: This list was made up by conservatives. These are lame, dishonest conservative memes meant to dress up every conservative pig idea with lipstick and make it seem like something any decent person would support.

• Definition of marriage – Liberal, support gay marriage.

• Abortion policies – Liberal, support abortion.

• Voter ID requirements – Liberal, oppose Voter ID, otherwise known as  the “Keep the Niggers from Voting” laws.

• Border security enforcement – Conservative, increase security at the border. I don’t know what the liberal position on this is. I assume it must be Open Borders or some dangerous mental illness like that.

 Balanced budget – Liberal, balanced budget is not only stupid and pointless, it’s also insane and a very bad idea.

 Expressions of American pride – Liberal, could care less. This stuff is all rightwing anyway. No one ever cheers for the progressive things about this country. When we start doing that, I will pick up a flag. Let me know.

 Government controlling health care – Liberal, but Obamacare isn’t even government health care, state health or social medicine like the whole world has. It’s insurance reform. The entire health care system is still run by the capitalists for a profit. So Obamacare is not government run healthcare in any way, shape or form. That conservatives flipped out about this (no large group of voters from any nation on Earth would have acted as reactionary as US conservatives did) just shows how insane they are.

 Energy independence relying on fossil fuels – Liberal, this is a code word for Drill baby drill. Putting new oil rigs everywhere, especially off the coast (check out Santa Barbara) and even more outrageously in the Arctic Ocean (a truly insane and even evil idea). Maximum fracking, which is just wrong in so many ways and should simply be banned,  or if not banned, states should hopefully decide to ban it in their state as New York did. It’s just not worth it.

• Firearm ownership – Liberal, want to throw out the 2nd Amendment.

 Definition of equality – Liberal, I don’t even know what that means, but I never knew conservatives even believe in the concept of equality in any way, shape or form. I guess this means conservatives oppose equality.

 Government’s role in our lives – Liberal, I love Big Government programs that protect the environment, help consumers, protect us from unsafe products, break up monopolies, crack down in corporate fraud. I also support all social programs to help Americans. As far as the ugly end of government’s role in our lives, as punitive cops at home and world cops in the US imperium (the whole world), conservatives apparently want to maximize this. So conservatives want to maximized everything bad about government and oppose everything good about it. Just one more way conservatives suck.

 U.S. world leadership – Liberal. I guess this means conservatives think the US should be Dictator of the World. That’s usually what “US world leadership” means. It’s just a code word for US imperialism. A bipolar or multipolar world is a safer world.

I got 11 out of 12 liberal. That means I am 92% liberal and 8% conservative. Can someone please tell me why liberals and Leftwingers hate me so much. All they ever do is call me reactionary, fascist, conservative, Republican, bla, bla. They always say, “Lindsay, you are NOT a liberal!”

WTH. Exactly what do I have to do to satisfy these leftwing nuts and meatheads?
