It’s time to wake up, America.
The mainstream media is attempting once again to draw the public’s opinion towards issues that are ultimately fringe issues that impact a small percentage of us in order to ignore the large-scale major issues that affect all of us.
When I saw mainstream media, I am referring to any major media outlet, including satirical quasi-political shows such as the Daily Show. All of these shows, op-eds, media appearances are in fact one colossal game meant to draw our attention away from what matters to items that don’t really matter all that much.
Now, before you get angry at me, let’s try and work our way rationally through how things actually work in the US.
For starters, ask yourself the following:
- Which affects you more, the fact a particular candidate voted for a particular bill in the past, or the fact that our entire monetary system is run by a man who none of us voted for and who has systemically worked to debase the value of the currency in our pockets while raising the cost of living?
- What matters more to the US, whether or not homosexuals can get married or the fact that all of us are married to a financial system in which all of us shoulder the debts of Wall Street and the banks, thereby insuring that our country will eventually face a debt crisis resulting is most if not all of us losing a major percentage of our wealth?
- Which is more important for our well-being, whether or a certain candidate paid his taxes or the fact that we are all of us being taxed by inflation which decreases our purchasing power, making all of us much poorer?
My point with all of this is that politics in this country is in fact a grand distraction to draw our attention away from those who actually call the shots in the US (the Fed and banking elites) by hitting our “emotional” buttons and getting us worked up about peripheral issues so we don’t wake up and realize that we’re being robbed every single day of our lives by individuals who we never even voted for.

The reason the media shies away from these topics is because the talking heads have all gotten rich by doing so. John Stewart, hilarious champion of the left made $15 million last year. His net worth is close to $80 million. His arch nemesis, Bill O’Reilly, made $20 million and is worth somewhere in the ballpark of $50 million.
Wake up people, these folks don’t represent you. You won’t make as much money as they make in one year in your entire lifetime. You have absolutely nothing in common with them.
Why? Because they’re muppets who appeal to our vanity by espousing opinions similar to our own. The end result is that we watch them and feel they’re on “our side,” when in reality they’re just lackeys who have gotten rich by distracting the masses from the real power structure: the Fed and the Primary Dealer banking system.
"The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it's profits or so dependent on it's favors, that there will be no opposition from that class."

Think about this one for a moment… the US debt is now $16 trillion. The largest owner of this debt is the US Federal Reserve. So when we pay taxes to pay the interest on the debt, it goes to guess who?
Haven’t heard that one discussed anywhere in the media have you?
How about this? Ben Bernanke pumped god knows how much money into the financial system during the 2008 Crisis. The chief of oversight at the Fed admitted that even the Fed doesn’t know where hundreds of billions of Dollars went. And they’re not going to investigate where it went either.
Did you get some of that money? Nope. The banks did though. But you won’t hear that during the Presidential debates or any of the various spin-based political talk shows.
However, there is hope. Both the newspaper and the mainstream news media have seen their readership/ viewership tank as more and more people realize that these folks don’t actually report anything; they just distract us from the real “game” being played. One can only hope that people actually put their knowledge to work and begin demanding real change, not as a political punchline, but as a systemic overhaul of a system none of us actually voted for in the first place.
This is after all supposed to be a Democracy, isn’t it?
