The Key To Controlling America Is Through Its Media

The Watch Guard Of Democracy Has Become Its Single Biggest Threat

The Downfall Of The Greatest Democracy The World Has Known, Brought About Through Usurpation of Its Press
There Will Be No Reform Of Any Kind In America Until We Reform Our Media, by Tim Watts - 031110

The consolidation of the United States media system is the death-knell for our democracy and has been exploited by the "powers that be" to control information and news in America, as well as acting as a conduit for disinformation and propaganda. For those naive to this fact, you first need to understand how and when the system was stolen. To understand the present you have to know about the past.

One of the greatest achievements ever in the history of organized civil governance was that of the United States government. Our forefathers learned all too well from the oppressive English Monarchy how not to run a government.

Having escaped the tyranny of the crown, our founding fathers sought to form "a more perfect union," and they succeeded where previous governments had failed before, by creating a system of checks and balances for the power of government. No one person could ever impose their will upon the people the way it had been under the crown.

The prized jewel of their efforts became our revered U.S. Constitution and our heralded Bill of Rights. These landmarks of legislation were based upon the unwavering principle that all men are created equal. This grand idea guaranteed the people, for the first time ever, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Even though fashioned under a republic, it was indeed the first true democracy the world had ever known, a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

After the signing of the Constitution, a woman asked of Benjamin Franklin, "Sir, what kind of government have you given us?" Franklin replied, "A republic, if you can keep it." The last half of Franklin's reply was a warning, for he knew this grand experiment in government would have to be nurtured and protected in order to survive.

The watch guard of our democracy has always been the American press. Their purpose was not just to provide news of the day, but to also hold our elected officials accountable for their actions in steering our new republic, safe guarding our democracy in the process.

This system worked quite well for over 150 years, but like all good things in life, it became a target of the unscrupulous, wealthy elite. When but a few men of immense wealth conspire together in secret against the people, bad things can happen, as history has proven time and time again.

A well connected, immensely wealthy cabal was formed from a a small group of rich tycoons, such as the Rockeffellers, Warburgs and Rothchilds. As a fellow member, J.P. Morgan held a very prominent role in the takeover of the United States republic.

It was Morgan who, along with the Rockeffellers, Warburgs and Rothchilds, instigated a secret meeting of the rich in 1910, off the Georgia coast on Jekyll Island. From this meeting came the mechanism to undo our republic, with the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913. This new central bank was undeniably the single greatest blow to the United States.

Just as damaging was another effort from Morgan in 1915 when he hired 12 top news managers to determine the most influential newspapers in America. The idea being to find the key news institutions that other news outlets would look to and be influenced by. (This is documented by Congressman Oscar Calloway in the official U.S. Record.) Morgan then bought or controlled the top 25 organizations reported to him by his task force of news managers. An editor was assigned to run each paper, making sure all news stories were controlled.

This was a key step towards total information and news control of the United States, giving birth to censorship, disinformation and propaganda. The guardian of our forefather's democracy had been deeply wounded.

Years later the CIA would take that media control a step farther by recruiting naive, patriotic reporters to aid in their efforts, as well as installing their own people within the nation's mainstream corporate press. This was known as Operation Mockingbird, the name alone was suggestive of the mission's objective, total control of the U.S. media system.

According to former CIA Director William Colby, "The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media."

There are two methods of recruitment. One method is through blind patriotism, recruiting those willing to report whatever they are told because it was said to be a National Security matter, or in the best interests of the United States. Others they bribe, for the ultimate mole, someone willing to print anything for money, no matter if it's true or not.

"The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media."  
- William Colby, CIA Director 1973-1976

Things wrong with our media:

  • CIA infiltrated through Operation Mockingbird.
  • Controlled by a mere six corporations... SIX!
  • A government propaganda & disinformation conduit.
  • Harmful to the growth of society through indoctrination programming.
  • It serves an agenda only for the "powers that be."

In the 1980s, Reagan-era deregulation was the final death blow for an honest media. Regulations were loosened to allow corporations to not only own as many media outlets as possible, but it allowed for local and regional monopolies, as well as the ownership of multiple forms of media, such as TV, radio and print journalism. This was previously prohibited to prevent singular entities from influencing the opinions of the masses with a biased viewpoint that suited the broadcast ownership.

As a result of this loosening of the FCC's broadcast regulations, the U.S. media has been bought up and taken over. It is now controlled by a mere six corporations. This is a bad thing for our democracy because it means our media watchdog has been muzzled and neutered. This means that six CEOs control what we see and hear. A half dozen corporate fat-cats tell us what news is and what isn't news. The truth is hidden behind a corporate agenda.

Stories are now hidden that "we the people" need to see. This is why we don't see any news on 9/11 truth. It's the mechanism in which an entire nation was deceived into two wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq. It's the reason that we no longer see any investigative journalism on the U.S. anthrax attacks.

A complicit bought-out media has become the ultimate weapon in the fascist takeover of the U.S. We aren't losing our republic, it's already gone. It didn't guns and warfare. All it took was money.

Too make matters worse, the elite hierarchy of our media system have been lured into an unholy alliance with an arguably nefarious group that now works for not just the takeover of the United States, but the entire world. Many of the top key news and media figures belong to the Council on Foreign Relations, a group long alleged to have ties to the secretive Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission. Because of this sordid relationship between journalists and secret society groups, the news we now get is spun to serve only their agenda.

The ultra-rich who plotted this silent coup now control our nation's politicians and our media system as well. Much about our political system needs to be fixed to help restore our democracy, however, it will not happen under the watch of a corrupt and complicit news media that works for the "powers that be." That's why they usurped our media to begin with. They fully knew what they were doing.

Taking back our media has now become job one in restoring our republic, a once proud achievement of our forefathers. Until the masses learn the truth, they won't know what truly ails our society. To many live under the old notion, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Well, our democracy is broken. It has been shattered into pieces that would no longer be recognizable by our founding fathers. That is a sad thing to admit, but to those who know the truth, it's blatantly obvious.

If we ever expect to take our country back, we must first take back the truth. In order to do that, we must take back our news media, for he who controls the flow of news and information controls the minds of the people. The perpetrators of this media takeover know that all too well.

It's time for us to take back our news media. Otherwise, we will never get our country back.
