The latest revelations have confirmed what I’ve long suspected–I’m not crazy and neither are you.
Power is controlling what happens. Real power is controlling what people think about what happens. Our elite do this by exerting massive amounts of influence over the corporate media, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, think tanks, NGOs, and other organs of narrative manipulation.
The Twitter Files illustrate just how much effort our feral elite put into this narrative manipulation. These revelations are as significant as the Pentagon Papers, yet the corporate media has so far been able to minimize the damage from their revelations. There’s a reason for the frantic cover-up. What they show is the close involvement of Federal law enforcement, intelligence agencies and their corporate media handmaidens in curtailing and blocking Administration/Democrat-threatening lines of thought, such as interest in the Hunter Biden laptop or hostility to vaccine mandates.
Matt Taibbi has a new article that describes the incestuous relationship. “Fact is, news consumers don’t know about the cozy partnership between big government and big media. If and when they think about such things, readers, viewers and social media consumers view news-gathering organizations as the natural enemies of politicians and bureaucrats — a relationship not unlike that of a cat to a mouse. In the movies, the medium that most exposes the inner workings of newspapers and broadcasting companies, reporters and their editors are invariably depicted as cynical, hard-charging outsiders dying to score Pulitzers and promotions by publishing blockbuster exposes about politicians on the take and priests on the make.”
He then makes a key point, one that I welcomed. “Sometime in the last decade, many people — I was one — began to feel robbed of their sense of normalcy by something we couldn’t define. Increasingly glued to our phones, we saw that the version of the world that was spat out at us from them seemed distorted. The public’s reactions to various news events seemed off-kilter, being either way too intense, not intense enough, or simply unbelievable. You’d read that seemingly everyone in the world was in agreement that a certain thing was true, except it seemed ridiculous to you, which put you in an awkward place with friends, family, others. Should you say something? Are you the crazy one?
I can’t have been the only person to have struggled psychologically during this time. This is why these Twitter files have been such a balm. This is the reality they stole from us! It’s repulsive, horrifying, and dystopian, a gruesome history of a world run by anti-people, but I’ll take it any day over the vile and insulting facsimile of truth they’ve been selling. Personally, once I saw that these lurid files could be used as a road map back to something like reality — I wasn’t sure until this week — I relaxed for the first time in probably seven or eight years.”
The back story of the Twitter Files is Trump’s surprise election which basically drove our feral elite around the bend. Russia-gate was the key element in the accelerated bludgeoning of the mass mind. It was eagerly taken up by the rest of the Democratic Party, the #McResistance media and powerful factions in the national security state. The documents lay out the scheme. You can see how the Russian cyber-threat was essentially conjured into being, with political and media pressure serving to massively hype something Twitter believed was negligible and uncoordinated to massive dimensions.
It’s only gotten worse.
My feel is that 2022 was the year political, economical and military issues discussed in the main stream media parted from the objective reality more than they have done at any previous time in my life. For example, the corporate media has completely rewritten the vast majority of their own reporting about Ukraine, reversing everything they spent the last eight years saying the minute Russia invaded back in February, engaging in one of the most brazen examples of the exact type of propaganda George Orwell’s 1984 was designed to warn about: Remember–“we’ve always been at war with Eastasia.”
I sometimes look into a mirror and think ‘well, maybe it’s just you. But it is not just me. Other analysts have come to similar conclusion. But, basically few to none of these dissident voices gets quoted in main stream media, nor are they afforded a venue to publish on these issues. No matter how true we already know many of these things to be, the Twitter Files have been vital in providing definitive proof and showing exactly how all of this was done.
This dynamic is the pleasure and pain of being an apostate. Once you see behind the curtain there’s a certain satisfaction from knowing the truth, unfortunately, there’s a tremendous cost to pay. As Terence McKenna says: “The cost of sanity in this society is a certain level of alienation.”
