When Scandals were Scandals


The Twitter Files prove that corporations, intelligence agencies and the Democrats conspired to rig an election. The Biden team instructed that a particular story be squashed, and it was. They gave lists of individuals and organisations to suppress, and these lists were acted on.

The social media company was effectively an outsourced arm of government, suppressing 1st amendment free speech rights.

Nixon was removed from office because one journalist’s office was broken into. They wanted to find and destroy evidence held by one journalist.

That was a gigantic scandal. Books were written about it, films commissioned.

The Biden team/administration destroyed evidence held by an entire major newspaper and suppressed communication of this GLOBALLY. Not one journalist (or two). The entire New York Post (NYP).

Thanks to modern technology and the overwhelming political bias and disregard for truth the NYP shared with Twitter, they could electronically break into every single home in America and make sure that story wasn’t there. They got to the story a little too late. And at that point the NYP was being honest. Now the NYP, like every other media organisation, is being virulently anti-Trump.

Imagine if that Murdoch corporation turn had happened earlier. Imagine if the story was breaking now. In those circumstances, the NYP would do exactly the same as Twitter, or CNN or The New York Times and eagerly suppress itself to the job of being nothing more than a propaganda machine that buries unhelpful stories and creates helpful scandals out of nothing.

A scandal used to be ‘something hugely embarrassing, corrupt or criminal from people in power, reported on by the media’. Today a scandal is ‘something imaginary which is embarrassing, corrupt or criminal created by the media in order to help those in power’ (who are themselves corrupt and criminal). Wise people have noticed the change. Stupid people haven’t.

The mainstream media is owned by a handful of billionaires. For a Rupert Murdoch or a Jeff Bezos, that’s direct ownership. For a George Soros or a Bill Gates, that’s billions of dollars pumped into hundreds of separate news organisations around the globe.

A new report shows that Soros has funded over 250 of them. State owned broadcasters in Canada and the UK add to the mix, but these are controlled by people with exactly the same politics. Oh, and they too receive funding from the same billionaires as well as the government spending (our money) appropriated for them.

Effectively the whole mainstream media, and the couple of chairs added for social media, is almost better understood as a single company with a small board of directors who all share the same politics and who exclusively employ journalists with no integrity and no objective standards. This is Lies Inc. and it determines what is and is not a scandal.

And this is why people who don’t think say ‘have you seen that huge nothingburger?’ about the Twitter Files. They are already conditioned, and they are already on the team of lies.
