ROGER AILES DEAD
— MATT DRUDGE (@DRUDGE) May 18, 2017
Media giant Roger Ailes, who resigned as chairman and CEO of Fox News amid sexual harassment allegations last year, has died at the age of 77. His death was first reported by the Drudge Report. No cause of death was given.
The statement shared by his wife Elizabeth Ailes read as follows:
– Video of the Day: Interview with Matt Taibbi About JP Morgan and the CNBC “Presstitutes” (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Oct 2, 2013):
The top definition of presstitute according to Urban Dictionary is:
A member of the media who will alter their story and reporting based on financial interests or other ties with usually partisan individuals or groups.
It has become abundantly clear in recent years that the mainstream media can not be identified as anything other that a collective of mediocre, corporate/government ass-kissing presstitutes. Different media outlets cater to different special interests, but the end result is all the same. MSNBC for example is essentially a straight up PR outlet for the Democratic Party, while Fox News represents the neo-con arm of the Republican Party and the military-industrial complex generally. CNBC has a special position in the presstitute media hierarchy. They basically defend Wall Street at all costs. The station represents the most important media gatekeeper for the financial oligarch, crony class.The following video is an interview on the daily political talk show Majority Report, hosted by Sam Seder. In this episode, he discusses with Matt Taibbi the recent appearance of Salon’s Alex Pareene on CNBC in which Maria Bartiromo unabashedly presstitutes herself out for Jaime Dimon and JP Morgan in an utterly embarrassing manner.The clip is a little over 16 minutes, but well worth your time. Sam Seder is pretty hilarious and his rapport with Taibbi is excellent.
So here’s my question for Maria. If all that matters is the bottom line “ex-legal problems” then why did the Feds raid the Silk Road rather than allow them to “settle without admitting guilt?” After all they were a “cash generating machine” too. Take that one on Money Honey.
– 29-second video: FOX News: “US has moral authority to annihilate Iran because they’re evil” (Washington’s Blog, Feb. 25, 2012):
This is Orwellian language in action. Mr. Carlson states that because the US has moral authority (we’re the good guys) and do not seek hegemony, the US can destroy Iran (and all its people?) in a pre-emptive strike because they’re evil (the bad guys). This “good/bad” comparison is overt in this clip, but always covert in US corporate media coverage: the US is “good” and Iran is “bad” (remember from W. Bush they are among the “axis of evil”). Mr. Carlson later clarified his remarks that he says Iran’s government is evil and his real concern is about US energy prices; with no remorse over “wiping Iran off the map.”
What is never mentioned in US corporate media reporting is the history that it is the US that has waged war on Iran by overthrowing their democracy from 1953-1979, and then acting with Iraq for an unlawful War of Aggression that killed up to a million Iranians from 1980-1988. Because these facts are not disputed as far as I know, and in obvious violation of war law, that makes the US guilty of Wars of Aggression on Iran that again killed up to a million of their people.
So how does this history of US war on Iran for 35 consecutive years match with FOX News’ Mr. Carlson’s statement that the US does not seek hegemony and has moral authority while Iran is the evil one?
John Bolton is a CFR member.
Here is John Bolton with other traitors at AIPAC:
– 2-minute video: FOX edits, fakes applause for John Bolton pro-war statement (Washington’s Blog, Feb. 25, 2012):
The 2-minute video is a public meeting of former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton responding to a US war veteran’s question. The video shows that FOX then edits-out the audience response to replace it with applause from a different person’s question. The proof is that the applause-segment shows a different person walking away from the microphone than the person who asked the question. The veteran testified that the audience booed Mr. Bolton’s answer.
This is not just FOX, but all of the six mega-media US corporations who lie by commission and omission as war propagandists.
I previously documented FOX ”reporting”, CBS, ABC, and CNN war propaganda by picking a day to look at their “news” and simply showing what they say. Importantly, one could do this every single day with similar examples of what I wrote on CNN’s published work of “credible” journalism:
When we now know that all claims for war with Iraq were known lies as they were told (and verbally explained here), and CNN provides similar innuendo for war by an unsourced alleged report with concerns of what might occur in the future allegedly stated by an unnamed US source reporting on an unnamed foreign source, this is propaganda and not news.
You might need to read the above twice to feel the impact of this choice of communication from CNN, then verify the source to see this is exactly what they reported.

– Petition to pepper-spray Fox News (RT, Nov. 25, 2011):
After Fox News’ Megyn Kelly mocked victims of a pepper-spray assault on the air this week (again), supporters of the students that suffered the attack challenged the conservative correspondent to find out first-hand what it’s like to be maced.
As of Friday morning, nearly 40,000 people have gotten behind that cause.
On Monday, Kelly told fellow Fox host Bill O’Reilly that pepper spray was “essentially” just a food product and that the hubbub over a University of California at Davis cop that fired the condiment (essentially) onto the faces of peacefully protesting students was unwarranted.
“I don’t know if from a legal standpoint the cops did anything wrong,” Kelly said, while at the same time admitting that Lt John Pike’s now infamous assault was still kind of “abrasive and intrusive.” The footage of the campus cop firing the dangerous chemical onto students that sat quietly at UC Davis spawned an Internet meme, international outrage and eventually administrative leave for the officer. Opponents of Kelly aren’t asking exactly the same for her, but they do think that she should see how tasty that food product can really be.
“To back up your claim that pepper spray is a food product, please consume as much of it as was sprayed on each protestor’s face, in one sitting, on camera at Fox News,” Nick Douglas of New York City wrote on a petition he created on the Change.org website. “You may mix the spray with one serving of food or drink, as I am not a sadist. Then, please relate the effects to your audience.”
Since creating the petition earlier this week, over 37,000 signatures have been added; Douglas is aiming for 50,000 and it doesn’t look that too far off.

Hilariously you can still embed the poll!

Ron Paul is the one candidate those elitists are really afraid of.
Just look at David Rockefeller’s reaction:

These elitists know Ron Paul very well, because he is the only one that would abolish their private Federal Reserve Bank, the IRS and bring an end to the illegal wars.
– Amid Murdoch scandal, Israel backers worry about muting of pro-Israel media voice (JTA, July 19, 2011)
– Israel backers worried about Murdoch’s pro-Israel media empire (Jewish Community Voice, July 27, 2011):
Pro-Israel leaders in the United States, Britain and Australia are warily watching the unfolding of the phone-hacking scandal that is threatening to engulf the media empire of Rupert Murdoch, founder of News Corp.
Murdoch’s sudden massive reversal of fortune—with 10 top former staffers and executives under arrest in Britain for hacking into the phones of public figures and a murdered schoolgirl, and paying off the police and journalists—has supporters of Israel worried that a diminished Murdoch presence may mute the strongly pro-Israel voice of many of the publications he owns.
“His publications and media have proven to be fairer on the issue of Israel than the rest of the media,” said Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice-chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. “I hope that won’t be impacted.”
Murdoch’s huge stable encompasses broadsheets such as The Wall Street Journal, the Times of London and The Australian, as well as tabloids, most notably The Sun in Britain and the New York Post. It also includes the influential Fox News Channel in the United States and a 39 percent stake in British Sky Broadcasting, or BSkyB, a satellite broadcaster. Murdoch founded the neoconservative flagship The Weekly Standard in 1995, and sold it last year.
Jewish leaders said that Murdoch’s view of Israel’s dealings with the Palestinians and with its Arab neighbors seemed both knowledgeable and sensitive to the Jewish state’s self-perception as beleaguered and isolated.
