HOW THE FREE PRESS WAS CORRUPTED BY CORPORATE INTERESTS DELIVERING WASHINGTON TO THE BANKING ELITE

ELDER PATRIOT – “Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, 1786.

With that simple statement, Jefferson laid out the blueprint for the enslavement of the American people.  Worse, the final result will be the enslavement of all of the world’s peoples.

Both major political parties used the media to build the perception of opposing positions on key issues, while all the while building consensus on issues that were critical to social change. That’s verified in the Congressional Record for 1917, which reported that

“…the J.P. Morgan [banking] interests…. and their subsidiary organizations got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the US…. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. …an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information….”

–Congressman Oscar Callaway statements were included in the Congressional Record (vol. 54, February 9, 1917, p. 2947)

It took only 74 years until David Rockefeller declared victory:

“The Council on Foreign Relations co-sponsors an assembly Rethinking America’s Security: Beyond Cold War to New World Order which is attended by 65 prestigious members of government, labor, academia, the media, military, and the professions from nine countries. Later, several of the conference participants joined some 100 other world leaders for another closed door meeting of the Bilderberg Society in Baden Baden, Germany. The Bilderbergers also exert considerable clout in determining the foreign policies of their respective governments. While at that meeting, David Rockefeller — co-founder (with Zbigniew Brzezinski) of the Trilateral Commission — said in a speech:

‘We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination [read as ‘democracy’] practiced in past centuries.”

The key points cited above are:

  • …political parties used the media to build the perception of opposing positions
  • … grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.

Over the years, I have consistently heard this refrain:  “Washington never gets it right.”  Or, “the (insert your political party) caved on a particular piece of legislation.”  Stop kidding yourselves.  Washington politicians always get it right.  For themselves and, for those who enrich them sufficiently.  The American people are not in the equation for most of Washington’s elite.  Unless, of course, it’s to pay the bill.  A continued belief in the pure intentions of Washington can be defined as cognitive dissonance.

For those who are new to the term, cognitive dissonance is a psychological phenomenon that refers to the discomfort felt by an individual when something they already know or believe is challenged by new information requiring a changed interpretation.  This generally results in their unwillingness to alter their thinking in the light of new evidence.

Once you are able to reject the comfortable view that people in Washington are working for your benefit, the ministrations of government and their media become clear.

We have been presented with a great tool to get the truth out.  The internet holds vast promise for disseminating the truth.  While it’s true that the internet is deliberately crowded with misinformation, I prefer to believe that most people, once freed of their cognitive dissonance will see the light of the truth and react accordingly.
