Why I Simply Cannot Trust Any Media

September 3, 2018

I am going to be very busy the next few weeks; I have got to get to work promoting my e-book and perhaps complete another one (to be marketed and sold through Lulu—it will NOT be a free PDF e-book): a different perspective in the Prodigal Band series, primarily for young adults (meaning no cussing and no sex scenes!). And other stuff. So I am posting this today.

I have a few media sources I trust, reasonably, even if I don’t agree with everything posted. These sites don’t practice the “click bait” game, at least as far as I can tell. And they don’t post stuff by click bait artists either, as far as I can tell.

Because most—not some, not much, but most alt-right and alt-left and alt-media in general cannot be trusted to post real news. Their articles or videos all have a semblance of truth, but truth is not paramount for these sites. They want your clicks for Google Ad-Sense or whatever “monetization” purpose, and they want your money.

 

I do hope folks realize there is NO ‘DONATE’ button on this site, or on my OmegaBooks  or blog,  which is about my books. And just why am I giving away for free an e-book it took me over two years to complete? Before one says, ‘because you know nobody would buy this book because you aren’t a bestselling author or celebrity and no one has ever heard of you, that’s why!’ let me say that I am giving this book away for free because I want to. Now, if I want to sell this book, I’ll just reconfigure it, take stuff out and put other stuff in, get an ISBN and Library of Congress copyright, re-format it and sell it on Amazon or Lulu or both!

 

I am NOT after anyone’s money! I maybe the only person I know that NEVER sought after money above anything else—now, if you want to read about people who desire money above all else, read the free e-book Free PDF E-book The Prodigal Band  ! I have enough money, thank you, and have done my homework so to speak on issues regarding money should I need it (in other words, medical costs—which is why I live fairly close to Mexico! If Medicare and Medigap won’t cover whatever, I’ll just get it done south of the border and be able to pay for it with savings. Mexico, BTW, is where I got all of my dental done before dental insurance became an option—Ojinaga, Mexico, right across the border in my neck of the woods; their dental work was excellent, at least as good as what could be gotten here.) And, also, BTW, I finally broke even on book sales last month. How many self-published authors getting books printed ever broke even? James Redfield, author of ‘The Celestine Prophecy’ may be the only one—and his church actually covered most of his costs! (According to what I read, member of his church—thousands of people—were ‘encouraged’ to buy this book and his other books.) To my knowledge he is the only best-selling self-published author before the digital age. And the only reason it took me so long to ‘break even’ was because I foolishly got too many copies of my first book printed. On my second book I made a small profit in the first year, 1998.

I try to be as truthful as possible and if I am wrong I’ll admit it. I write what I write here because sometimes I have to say/write something, about something.

For the most part I prefer to write fiction, which, IMHO (except for this blog, which is mostly my opinion, hopefully backed by facts), is what is mostly reported in the media of the world—fiction. The fictional novels I have written are based either on my research or on factual events or pop culture “news” I have read in books and magazines. And for the most part, what I read on click bait news sites or see in videos is, as they say, ‘fake news.’ And that is the right of the news poster. In terms of non-fiction, though, I want the truth, not click bait!

Was the “Take Down of Alex Jones” Truly a Take Down?

August 8, 2018

I will begin by quoting the question with which I ended my previous post: ‘I will also try to explain why YouTube would ban–a Zionist or two?’

Exactly. Why would YouTube and other tech oligarch platforms ban two avowed Zionists–Tommy Robinson and Alex Jones?

One answer would be because they can: the owners of tech platforms can (to heck with freedom of speech and the press) ban whomever they want, and that is why they are doing it, and no declaration of “public utility” is going to change that–the regulators will see to that!

The answer that I think (with the two being avowed Zionists and all) makes a lot more sense is because Big Tech wants these two individuals to be banned in order to foster their agendas–what better way to piss off “conservatives” or “patriots” than to ban Alex Jones (and in England, Tommy Robinson)? And won’t these “pissed off” folks want to take it out on Antifa and like-minded SJWs and their fellow Soros-ian sock-puppets? And what better way to institute the “coming Civil War” Lisa Click-Bait and others are constantly spouting and driving toward? And what better way to completely divide and conquer us “useless eater/little people/dumbed down idiots” than to instigate a bogus civil
war where Antifa and Co. and “Conservative Patriots-MAGAs” kill each other off. And then, after Antifa and Alex Jones/InfoWars and all the other like-minded sites and videos and podcasts are gone, the rest of us who did not fall for this crap will be left with virtually nothing, online or offline truth- wise. And don’t forget, Big Tech and the govts. they own actually think the rest of us will be dependent on them for anything.

There is even the possibility (though I cannot prove it) that Alex Jones, at least, went along with the whole “take down” deal! This man, really really really, is controlled opposition–his avowed Zionism proves that. Only controlled opposition would denounce the “new world order” while defending Israel’s genocide of Palestinians! (By not denouncing this genocide, Alex, you are ultimately defending it!) Only controlled opposition would make the ridiculous claim that “the Arabs control Hollywood,” when everyone on planet Earth knows who controls Hollywood. Only controlled opposition would support a president that wants to take out Iran, or at least says he does (because Trump, like AJ, is just another puppet), because Iran opposes Israel and Saudi Arabia, and because Iran is maybe the only defense non-Zionist and non-Wahhabi nations in the Middle East have against US-Israeli-Saudi aggression and war. Besides, war with Iran would drive the price of oil so sky-high that no American not a multi-millionaire would never be able to buy gas and drive anywhere…what a way to institute stack and pack Agenda 21 or 2030 cities, than to force everyone with a job to walk or bike to work?

Further, being kicked off YouTube and other platforms (but surprisingly not Twitter) will get AJ to go onto Mike Adams’s new RealVideo platform, which will certainly drive up Adams’s payout take–Jones supposedly had 2.5 million subscribers, who will soon sign up for Real Video. Being kicked off Facebook will allow Jones to join Gab or some other alt-right platform, and then the game is one for others.

Which leads me to this: recourse for all truth-seekers not interested in “choosing a side” (as FromTheTrenchesWorldReport administrator Henry Shively says, and I totally agree with why he says it) between the crazy left and the bogus “freedom fighter” alt-right, and interested in defending our Bill of Rights, which, by defending freedom of speech/religion/press, also includes freedom of thought:

1. Boycott these platforms, any platform that wants to tell you what to think-say-write-create-believe. It will be hard to get off Facebook and YouTube and the rest, but at some point you will love the idea of not wasting hours tweeting nonsense, watching videos that promote falsehood, or “friending” someone you never met. Those dopamain hits messing you up will dissipate, and you will be able to get back to critical thinking.

2. If you simply are relying on these platforms to sell your books or products or whatever, only use these platforms for that purpose, and get the heck off political-SJW-phony-patriot-phony-religious sites that are obstructing your freedom of choice. (Note: If Jesus Christ Himself had a Facebook page, I’d go to it for truth, but since He doesn’t…why should I go to some preacher with an agenda?)

3. Ever hear of talking to people, not tweeting, not selfie-ing, not texting, but actually talking to people face-to-face like us old schoolers do? Here is why talking to real human beings is important–for one thing, body language. Body language will tell one a whole lot more about if that person you are communicating with is actually being truthful. With texting or tweeting, someone might say they totally agree with you while performing sneers or smirks or body language mocking you.

4. Do what Winston Smith did in “1984”–keep a diary of sorts where you can write exactly what you are thinking and then read it later to refresh your belief codes. If you live in a so-called IoT “smart home” that may be your only recourse to the constant surveillance. Plus that way you can hone your writing skills–since they don’t teach writing in public schools hardly anymore.

5. Read books, fiction and non-fiction. And I don’t just mean e-books, but also hard/soft cover printed books that you can actually hold in your hands. Play a musical instrument even if you aren’t an expert at it.

6. If you can write, write your own stories and self-publish them. Unlike the 90s when I self-published my two printed novels Battle of the Band and The Prophesied Band, self-publishing these days is easy and cheap. And you don’t have to do Kindle, either (I am not doing Kindle–their payout sucks!). Try Lulu or Smashwords. Or just make a PDF of it. Everyone now has Adobe Reader or another PDF reader. Kindle or Nook screens even allow for PDFs, from what I heard. If you can draw or do art, or write and play original music, do that. Then upload it (but I would boycott Spotify, though, because of their censorship).

And once your mind is clear of the clutter your “superiors” have foisted on you, you can then take the next step: seek the truth, come up with ways (above ground or underground) to defend your rights, and think outside the box. Because ultimately, it is you that is restricting you. Stop letting “both sides” and their criminal psycho elite masters brainwash you into thinking there is nothing you can do about what they have planned for you. They can and will shut down the free-thinking-truthful internet
because they can, but they cannot control it all. They can barely control themselves, for pity sake!

Note: Gun control? They tried that in Connecticut after Sandy Hoax and it didn’t work. Under Obama and his gun-control minions, more Americans than ever bought guns and ammo. Now they have 3-D gun printing mechanisms for a few thousand dollars, that they think they can ban the downloading of gun-plans when any bit torrent site can publish them for free…you do know about bit-torrent, which moves world-wide from server here to server there, and the govt. can’t track ’em all. Folks, they will have to institute an EMP attack to completely shut down the internet, and they know it. Don’t buy into the enslavement scenario; the only person who can enslave you, is you.

Speculation on the “Take Down of Alex Jones”–Why?

August 7, 2018

First off let me say, IMHO, that Alex Jones is America’s Tommy Robinson of sorts–he’s a Zionist, he’s alt-right, and he thinks he has all the answers to “restore freedom” in the US. Meaning, I believe Alex Jones is like a broken clock–he’s right twice a day. Maybe. Unlike Robinson though, his name really is Alex Jones (as far as I know), and he has made a ton of loot with his InfoWars/PrisonPlanet shtick, screaming into a microphone and all….drama drama drama drama chameleon…where are you, Boy George?

And, while I don’t believe a whole lot of what this dude screams into his mic, he’s got the right to scream it! First Article, aka First Amendment and all that Bill of Rights stuff. As I had said with Tommy Robinson’s wrongful imprisonment–he’s finally out, though–I do not care if he is a Zionist, he has the right to freedom of speech and the press. Same for Alex Jones, and, I presume in the future, Mike Adams, who is setting up his own YouTube alternative platform–as with Jones, Adams is wealthy.

Note: I am not wealthy. But even if I was, I would not be setting up a YouTube channel. I do not need a YouTube channel–I write spiritual and alternative fiction that has a popular culture meme–a rock and roll band that overcomes the ‘dark side’ for the Spirit of Good, and now writing spin-offs as well. I have a website, OmegaBooks, where I write about and sell and promote my books, as well as an OmegaBooks Blog  (that I need to update). My thing is writing, not video-making, and besides, I don’t have the money for the equipment, I don’t have the time for this, and I’m not about to waste the viewer’s time sitting in front of a webcam, speaking into a microphone, sitting in a chair with virtually nothing interesting in the background. And I don’t have a cell phone, either–where I live we have no cell service (and if we did, I wouldn’t own one anyway! Selfies? I am 65 years old with white hair. Not exactly gorgeous if you know what I mean!) Yes, the money would be nice (and I mean money, not bitcoin! if I wanted bitcoin I’d be “monetizing” with Brave browser “wallets” or whatever!), but I’ll take money as it comes from book sales–heck if I had so dire a need for money I’d be selling, not giving away, my  Free PDF e-book ‘The Prodigal Band’ If I really need money badly, God will bless me somehow, so I am not worried about money.

Now that that’s over with, there are some interesting reasons why Alex Jones was banned from YouTube and other platforms and in the near future, others will also be banned, and not just for political reasons. And you want to know why I hate politics!

First, why would techie oligarch platforms ban anyone–aside from the fact that these folks are power-freak psychopaths? (And here is the really strange thing–these folks KNOW they are power-freak psychopaths, because–being anti-humanity techies–that is how they get back at all the so-called “bullies” who “bullied” them in grade school or whatever, so they took on the psychopath persona for revenge. And, as the Bible says, the love of money is the root of all evil.) So why would Zuckerberg or whoever ban someone like Alex Jones, who just happens to be a millionaire? I mean, we’re not talking about some powerless truth teller here! Jones is the rich man’s Daboo7 or Lisa Haven–a click bait artist extraordinaire. Now, Jones, Daboo7 and Lisa gal all have the right to free speech and use click bait, that is their right…but because they often completely muffle or misconstrue the truth, I will expose them for this. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I want truth, not click bait! So why would YouTube and the others ban Jones? Because they can. Period.

And here is where the “public utility” argument comes in. A guy–a leftist, BTW, and a self-proclaimed “former Satanist” (you can see several Satanic symbols on his wall in his videos)–named “stxyhexenhammer666” did a YouTube video stating that if YouTube and other tech oligarch platforms were public utilities, they would not be allowed to ban Jones or anyone else. He’s not the first one to do this–a Jones’ acolyte, Paul Joseph Watson, said the same thing on his channel. Mike Adams, of course, has also done videos about it. And they are right to do so, because it is bad and it is wrong to ban anyone. Yet, I cannot support the “public utility” thing–public utilities are government regulated, for pity sake! Just how long before these politically incorrect channels are “regulated” out of existence? So I don’t think making these companies public utilities will solve any problems (and was this dude around when “Ma Bell” was regulated into what has become AT&T? Just how whoop-tee-doo did that turn out? AT&T, in case you didn’t know, now owns DirecTV and other monopolies!)

But the guy does have a good idea–if you don’t like what YouTube and the rest are doing to Jones and others, just STOP USING THESE PLATFORMS! Boycott YouTube!

Or is that too damned difficult for you?

Unfortunately, it is too difficult for some. And THAT is one reason YouTube and others are banning Jones–YouTube KNOWS that “everyone loves YouTube.”

But here is another reason why YouTube has banned Jones–while a lot of folks love AJ, a lot of folks do NOT love AJ and are whining about whatever he screams into his mic, or perhaps think Paul Joseph Watson is just a shill or don’t like his northern English accent (I myself am a lover of northern English accents) or the way he does his videos. A lot of folks do not like alt-right stuff, and think in these times of political correctness, alt-right anything should be banned. Now it is said that Zuckerberg and the rest are leftists. I don’t know if they are truly leftist or not–and why would a billionaire like Zuckerberg be a socialist, anyway? But he does have an agenda, right? Perhaps those who bullied him in his youth were right wingers? I don’t know. So maybe he is a leftist, but not for the same reasons that typical leftists are leftist.

And here is another reason, maybe, why YouTube banned Jones–to keep up the divide between alt-left and alt-right, which is I TRULY BELIEVE what BOTH the alt-left and the alt-right want! And who wants “divide and conquer” more than those in power, including these tech oligarchs? Further, alternative platforms like Gab (instead of Twitter), Steemit, BitChute and Mike Adam’s Real Video (instead of Facebook or YouTube) and Yandex (instead of Google) or Brave browser (instead of Google Chrome) just love the fact that many folks will now decide to boycott YouTube, as well as Twitter, Facebook and the rest. And don’t these alt platforms WANT folks to boycott YouTube and the others? Of course! So maybe, just maybe, these alt-platforms WANT YouTube to ban Alex Jones and others in the alt-right? Don’t you think maybe these alt-platforms are part of the divide and conquer? Of course they are!

In the next post, I will try to explain how to not fall for any “divide and conquer” scheme, especially in the realm of politics! Hint: It is NOT the Alex Jones’s, the Mike Adams’s, the InvestmentWatchBlog’s, the Tommy Robinson’s, the Libertarian sites like Lew Rockwell and the Ron Paul Institute (which one of the oligarchs also banned)…it is NOT these sites and folks that the criminal psychopathic elites and the tech psycho oligarchs are afraid of. Just like it is not Antifa vs. Trumpers–folks, that’s entertainment, okay? In the next post I will prove just whom the psychos are afraid of.

I will also try to explain why YouTube would ban–a Zionist or two?

 

It’s Not Just the Left That’s Crazy, Either!

March 2, 2018

Just in case one thought I had it out for the SJWs and the hard core left and not the click-baiters, scare-mongerers, and hypocrites on the alt-right and mainstream Republican right wing, then think again. Because I have been scathing over the right-wing’s insistence that Israel is always right–FOR YEARS! If not here, then at my Blogger blogs Something Happening Here and Truth Not Heresy

And, just as with my screeds against the SJW idiots having once been a hard core leftist (read my previous post, posted March 1, 2018) so that I know what I’m talking about–that the left really has gone bonkers!–I can also say I have a perfectly good reason to abhor the mainstream and even the alt-right’s willingness to support Israel no matter what and support Trump no matter what.

One, I used to be a Christian Zionist but gave that up over the course of several years finalized by the reality that it was Israel that attacked the USS Liberty murdering 34 sailors (and they finally admitted doing so as well!) and by the reality that Israel attacked Lebanon in 2006–and LOST–not to defeat Hezbollah, but to STEAL the Litani River WHICH THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO DO SO, UNDER GOD, which the Talmudists running that nation claim they have a God-given right to do so. All Benny the Yahoo and cohorts have to do is look at a Biblical map of Biblical Israel’s borders, which END at the south side of the Litani River. NO, idiots, GOD did NOT give you the right to steal Lebanon!

Two, I once wanted to convert to Judaism, move to Israel, and join their army–this was on the heals of the 1967 “Six-Day War” when, though I hated the Vietnam War, I was as staunch a Gentile supporter for Israel as one could be at the time–and I had no problems either with the oppression and wanton killing of Palestinians, either. To me, all Palestinians were terrorists! Yes, you read that right–I used to buy into the BS that all Palestinians, babies and old ladies included, were terrorists or would automatically become terrorists. And then, in 1976, I actually met a Palestinian lady at the job I had, a very sweet and friendly lady named Ibtasan, nicknamed Abbie. (But she did ask me if I was Jewish…when I said no, then I guess I was okay with her. And then her cousin took a job there, claimed to hate Jews, and after a month of crappy work they fired her.) So, having realized not all Palestinians are “terrorists,” I gradually accepted the possibility that Israel maybe wasn’t what I thought it was. And then the massacres at the Sabra and Shatilla camps in Lebanon performed by Phalangists, who were Christians (really?) doing Israel’s bidding. And then other events that made Israel look bad in my opinion. But how does any American, from Alex Jones to Donald Trump, still support Israel, right or wrong, after learning that this supposed “ally” murdered 34 of our sailors and nearly murdered the rest of the crew as they tried to sink the ship? AND THEN ADMIRAL McCAIN, FATHER OF TRAITOROUS SENATOR JOHN McCAIN, ORDERS A STAND DOWN ON AIDING OUR OWN SAILORS AND SHIP? AND THEN “PRESIDENT” JOHNSON, WHO MAY HAVE HAD A HAND IN MURDERING JFK, COVERS THE WHOLE THING UP?

But it isn’t just Israel that has me in a wad of woe when it comes to dealing with the nonsense the alt-right and mainstream right pushes.

From From the Trenches World Report to Zero Hedge to What Really Happened and other sites are stories that mainstream right wing FOX NEWS is calling for the banning of guns. (And don’t fall for the nonsense about it’s only “assault” weapons–folks, ALL GUNS can be thought of as “assault” weapons!). Trump now is calling for gun-grabbing “from dangerous people” (folks, the criminal psycho elites think ALL non-elite Americans are “dangerous”!) Republican so-called “supporters” of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and “supporters” of the Second Amendment are now trying to pass what would amount to a total gun ban that they actually expect We the People to “obey” when the criminal psycho elites think they are “above the law”! (Folks, it isn’t just Hollywood hypocrites who think this way–it started with our “masters” in Babylon on the Potomac, aka Washington DC….and what else would you expect from mostly actors in Hollywood? They ACT, get it?)

Finally, why should I support the mainstream right wing when, just as the SJWs are doing the bidding of their paymaster, George Soros, the alt-right and mainstream right wing are doing the bidding of their own paymsters, from the Koch Brothers to Sheldon Adelson to dozens of gigantic oligarchies running the armaments (war machine) industries to Nestle and other destroyers of our WATER, to the oil giants who will do anything to murder millions of people for the sake of profit to the also-water-destroying fracking industry (folks, a natural spring swimming pool supporting many catfish, various other fish, turtles, snakes, and other water creatures has been partially destroyed in the “oasis” of far west Texas at the Balmorhea State Park BY FRACKERS!) to the companies trying to destroy whatever is left of Native American land and reservation rights (such as the pipeline nonsense in Sioux country, the Dakota pipeline, with Trump of course standing against the Natives, who have lived in this country for thousands of years, for the sake of Trump’s owners!) to the Republicans supporting the oppression of Cliven Bundy and the BLM’s nonsense against the folks standing at Malheur for their rights (the Hammonds) so that Hillary’s Uranium One deal with the Russians could go through, to libertarian hypocrisy in supporting “free” trade when anyone with a moral sense would support FAIR trade (and I applaud all “fair trade” ag products including coffee companies)…okay, you get the idea that I DO NOT SUPPORT the “anything for Israel and the oligarchies” machinations of the alt-right and especially the mainstream right wing, just as I won’t support the craziness of the left wing.

Finally, for those of you who like to watch videos by “kitty” aka YouTube’s “The Truth Factory” (go to YouTube and type in “the Truth Factory”), here is my word to “kitty”: you need to stop being so damned supportive of Trump! You are Canadian, no? Maybe you should spend a little more time attacking your idiot Prime Minister Trudeau and less time worrying about how a president of a country you don’t even reside in is dealing with Hillary-bots, SJWs, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the rest of the “Deep State” you rail against. I’d say you should worry more about the “Deep State” running Canada!

I Want The Truth, Not “Click Bait”!

November 6, 2017

Remember Jade Helm? Click Bait from YouTube channels. From Alex Jones’ InfoWars to Dahboo7’s Dahboo777 to Lisa Haven to God knows how many others that used what they “thought” was some New World Order Training Exercise to scare the alt-right and others into clicking on their YouTube channels. And let’s add to that various alt-right sites like the various Alex Jones sites to “Government Slaves” (who steal articles from legit sites, post a few paragraphs–click bait–then send you to the original site…all the while asking you for donations!) So I’m supposed to donate to a site that posts NOTHING original? Say what you want about Mike Rivero and his What Really Happened site that now forces you to donate to get your articles posted yourself. At least Rivero posts original material! IntelHub, RINF Alternative, and lots and lots of others doing the same thing. Click bait, then donate.

And now we come to the Antifa/Refuse Fascism nonsense, which was pushed even by legit alt websites including Daisy Luther’s the Organic Prepper site, Mike Adams’ Natural News and other more truthful alt sites…even folks who ought to know better pushed the envelope here. Again, for click bait.

Sorry folks, I like your sites, but by pushing something that you should have known was nonsense, you make yourselves look like you’re just doing the click bait thing.

But the worst was the “EMP Nationwide Power Outage Training Exercise” crapola, that anyone with half a brain (especially if they live in Texas) knows had to be ridiculous–and on the same day as the so-called “Antifa Riots”?

This is why (though I did tell my husband about it) I knew the training exercise was bogus.

  1. If you live in Texas, you know it was bogus because TEXAS IS NOT PART OF THE NATIONWIDE POWER GRID! Texas has its own power grid, and therefore any “nationwide” power outage exercise that does not include Texas is NOT a “nationwide power outage”!
  2.  If there is to be a “nationwide power outage” for training purposes or not, then the various power utilities MUST let their customers know there will be this “nationwide power outage” for the simple reason that millions of customers absolutely need power–those on oxygen concentrators, those on heart monitors at home (hospitals will always have a power backup), those on other types of electrical medical devices for life support. Because this so-called outage was supposed to last for several hours, because it was simulating an EMP attack. An EMP attack would take the grids down for days, weeks, months, and maybe even years. If you want to look at something similar, think Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.
  3. Wasn’t Jade Helm about something similar? And how did that work out?

 

Now one could say those putting up YouTube videos about what they clearly failed to properly investigate before making these videos weren’t using them for click bait but for warning purposes “just in case.” Fine. Go ahead and make up stuff for click bait and “monetization” from YouTube. Or donations.

But, to those whose videos I link to below and the rest of you click bait artists, here is the truth–you keep pulling this click bait nonsense and pretty soon no one will believe a word or video you say or write. And there goes the donations and monetizations-down the drain!

Before you post videos and articles for whatever reason, PLEASE DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND DISCOVER THE TRUTH OF IT! Even I get things wrong sometimes. But at least I don’t ask for donations over it.
