    You Will Never Hear These Truths Discussed In The Mainstream: “Journalism Is Like A Vegas Brothel”

    The general public truly lives in two separate worlds. We have the world of the mainstream media, popular culture and political rhetoric; a world which constantly and desperately seeks to twist or destroy any legitimate measure of reality, leading people into a frenzied fog. Then, we have the world of concrete facts; an ugly, brutal world that upsets many people when they see it and leaves them with little more than the hope that the most innovative of us will perhaps reverse the disastrous course, or at least, survive to carry on a meaningful level of civilization.

    The sad thing is, if a majority of the population studied and accepted the world of fact, then preparation and intelligent or aggressive action might negate any destructive outcome. Reality only grows more ugly because we continue to ignore it.

    Have you ever come to a logical or practical conclusion in response to a national or global problem and waited in vain to hear it represented in the mainstream? Have you ever thought — if I can figure this out, why can’t they? And by “they,” I mean the people most commonly offered a mainstream platform. This includes so called “professional journalists,” political leaders, mainstream economists, highly paid “analysts,” etc. Well, I think more and more Americans in particular are finally considering the notion that these “professionals” are either not very smart, or they have an agenda that seeks to perpetuate the problem rather than fix the problem.

    Yes, the intellectual class, the longtime gatekeepers of public thought and consent, are actually mostly morons and/or liars with a terrible purpose in mind. I understand that this does not come as a surprise to many of my readers, but remember, the masses are still trapped in a stupefying fog. The goal here is to bring just a few more of them out of the doldrums whenever possible.

    In the meantime, they are being fed one dishonest narrative after another, and there are certain truths, suggestions, solutions and philosophies they will never stumble across in their daily lives. Here are just a few questions and ideas on very specific mainstream events and propaganda memes which just don’t seem to receive the light of day.

    The Healthcare Bill Debacle

    If you happen to take note of stock market reactions to legislative events, you may have observed that equities recently suffered a swift sidekick to the solar plexus (read the section on stocks below as to why this matters little). This is, according to the mainstream, due to the failure of the Trump administration’s Obamacare repeal efforts. The first assumption here is that stock markets exploded higher after Trump’s election win purely because the investment world was placing bets that Trump would ram through tax cuts and pro-business legislation within his first year. The second assumption is that because Trump’s first piece of major legislation, the repeal of Obamacare, has failed, he will not be able to achieve any of his other stated goals, including tax cuts.

    There are perhaps some minor truths within this narrative. A repeal of Obamacare might have helped free up billions in capital which could have been used for Trump’s infrastructure programs among other things. With the health care act still bleeding Americans dry and overextending the expenses of government, that border wall is looking a little less likely right now. Unless, of course, taxes remain the same or even increase in the near term.

    My question is, why isn’t anyone in the mainstream questioning why a “new” healthcare bill was necessary at all? What was the point of this debacle? To marginally shift Obamacare so that it still exists but with reduced funding? Why not just get rid of the damn thing completely? That is what people voted Trump in for.

    Instead of chasing a pointless piece of legislation through congress trying to make every special interest happy, why won’t Trump simply remove enforcement of the Obamacare tax? It is, after all, a perfect example of taxation of without representation. If businesses and individuals no longer had to worry about the fines for not paying into Obamacare, then most of them would not voluntarily pay for it. Thus, Obamacare would be defunded naturally. It seems to me that the most obvious solution to the problem is being completely ignored in the mainstream.

    Russian Hackers And Political Influence

    This narrative just refuses to die, and the only point I can see to it so far is that it is a way for establishment elites to keep the political left constantly agitated. The left becomes more and more insane in their rhetoric and behavior exactly because the mainstream continues to perpetuate the rationale that Trump is “not really president.” Think about it — the left was already hurtling towards the madness of full blown communism, but in order to reach a crescendo of schizophrenic violence, they need a little more psychological justification. If they can be convinced that Trump is now a “Russian agent,” they have all the justification they need to take their mob actions to the next level.

    Just one problem — why is no one in the mainstream asking for the evidence that supposedly proves that Trump’s campaign was influenced by the Russian government? I keep hearing it exists, but where is it? The media is more than willing to demand hard evidence that the Trump team was being electronically tapped by the Obama administration; but so far there is more evidence coming to light of Obama wiretapping than evidence that Trump is working for the Russians.

    Beyond this, as far as the Russian “hacking” of the DNC during the election is concerned, why is no one presenting the most important point — that point being, WHO CARES who actually hacked the DNC? It does not matter. What matters is that extreme corruption was found, along with regular collusion between the Clinton campaign and the media. It is the corruption that people should be up in arms about, NOT the hacking.

    Clinton Corruption

    Why are the Clintons still running around free? Why is no one talking about prosecution anymore? This question is for Trump, of course. Now, I predicted post election that Trump would indeed abandon all talk of Hillary Clinton going to prison almost immediately, but I would like to hear his argument as to why this should no longer be pursued.

    Stock Market Relevancy

    Why do mainstream economists hyper focus on the stock market? The stock market is nothing more than a trailing indicator of economic decline, and is ultimately irrelevant to the bigger fiscal picture. Yet, the health of the economy is almost always first tied to stock market performance (and to unemployment numbers which are also highly manipulated).

    If stocks are in complete reversal by June/July as I predicted right after the election in my article ‘World Suffers From Trump Shellshock — Here’s What Happens Next’, does this mean that the economy is finally considered “in decline?”  Or, does it mean that the economy has been in steady decline for years and only now is the stock market reflecting that reality?

    Also, why do people still listen to mainstream economists? They are almost always wrong, and alternative economists are almost always right. Shouldn’t these supposed “professionals” be out of a job by now?

    Illegal Immigration

    Why is enforcement of existing immigration laws, laws which have been a standard for decades, such a divisive issue? Most countries in the world have stringent immigration laws, why is it that America is not allowed to enforce similar laws? Why does the left in particular consider the removal of illegal immigrants representative of “racism” or “fascism?” I realize they are mostly insane, but I would just like to hear one valid and practical argument from them as to why the U.S. specifically should be saddled with wide open borders and why American conservatives in particular are racist merely for demanding that the current laws be followed?

    I don’t want to hear nonsensical mainstream arguments about how we are a “nation of immigrants.” We are NOT a nation of immigrants. I was born here. Most of us were born here. Our ancestors settled here and built this nation from nothing. This nation is established now and has been for generations. Times change and we don’t need a flood of random immigrants. If anything, we need highly selective immigration of only the best and brightest and most skilled from around the world.

    Illegal immigration is not a debate. There is no logical reason to defend it, unless your goal is to overwhelm the American system with potential democrat voters or to completely destabilize the country altogether. Why are we still arguing about this?

    The Mainstream Media Is Dying

    The bastion guardian of all that is “mainstream,” the arbiter of who is “fake news” and who is “real news,” is actually in rapid decline, but you will never hear them admit it publicly. Many alternative media outlets are crushing the readership and viewership numbers of many mainstream media publications and shows, but much of the public still clings to the faulty concept that there is a particular level of “professionalism” that goes into the production of these narrative peddlers. We have been brainwashed with stories of “journalistic integrity” that lead us to consider media a higher calling. This is, of course, pure garbage.

    As was made fully evident this past election, there is absolutely no integrity whatsoever in the journalistic field. There are only people with agendas and people who whore themselves out for people with agendas. That’s it. You may find a few honest souls on the conservative side of the media apparatus, but in large part, journalism is like a Vegas brothel.

    Unfortunately, our society is in a period of transition in which the public is skeptical of mainstream media influences, but still pays attention to them. While people are rapidly abandoning these “news sources” for more independent fair, this may be too little too late. As I have outlined above, there are numerous questions which are never asked; numerous solutions that are never presented. The majority remains oblivious to practical options and practical actions. They remain oblivious to certain truths. The mainstream may have already done all the damage it can do. All that is left is for alternative analysts to pick up the pieces, ask the right questions, fight for the right causes and see if we can salvage this mess in time.

    1. “THE FURTHER A SOCIETY DRIFTS FROM TRUTH, THE MORE IT WILL HATE THOSE WHO SPEAK IT”

      George Orwell

      Sadly … the above statement is very much true.
      On the upside of things – I’ve noticed a more of an “awakening” amongst the populace – most notably against MSM & US Gov. rhetoric.

      The downside – still too many dumb ass people who live in a fantasy world in this country. Can’t reason or fix the stupid.

      • Muddy says:

        I long ago gave up reading Brandon’s garbage. I notice his initials are B.S. How fitting. I read the title to the article and then I saw who wrote it. NO, I did not read the article, nor will I. “Journalism is Like a Vegas Brothel”, is a statement which further exemplifies his ignorance. Note to Brandon, there is more class in a Vegas brothel than in any jo(urinal)ism.

      • Grekko says:

        “Can’t reason or fix the stupid.”

        I agree with that statement, as do most here. What surprised me was the overwhelming amount of my fellow citizens that actually stood up and applauded the Donald when he called out the MSM for being liars with an agenda. I restored a little pride in me. It shows that a large part of this country is NOT as stupid as I thought. They were on to the game being played against them, but they were never allowed by the MSM to be together in a large enough group where they could show their dissatisfaction against the MSM without being belittled as a conspiracy theorist or being politically incorrect. Trump gave them a platform to air their frustration. It really gave me a sense of pride to know that I wasn’t out there alone. More people realize what is going on. They say that only 5% of the people were willing to fight for the Revolution against the UK. I’ll bet we have a good 25-40% today. God Bless America.

    2. Ministry of Propaganda. Nothing more, nothing less. Everything that everyone thinks is based on false information. Your opinions are not yours. Your thoughts are controlled by the life long indoctrination you have been subjected to. Turn off all sources of information (propaganda). Believe nothing. Think. Question everything. If you don’t see it yourself, don’t accept it as true.

      • Apollo says:

        Fact: MSM= CIA’s Disinformation Arm of Propaganda to keep the masses in fear and dependent on the police state.

        This is BS False From the Article: “Why are the Clintons still running around free? Why is no one talking about prosecution anymore? This question is for Trump, of course. Now, I predicted post election that Trump would indeed abandon all talk of Hillary Clinton going to prison almost immediately, but I would like to hear his argument as to why this should no longer be pursued.”

        Answer: Trump Cant do this by Himself;
        Trump Asks Why Intelligence Committee Isn’t Probing The Clintons
        03-28-2017 • http://www.prisonplanet.com
        “Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech, money to Bill, the Hillary Russian ‘reset,’ praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!” Trump wrote in two tweets Monday night.

        RE: MSM- 70% of the Add Revenue the MSM earns comes from the Major Drug Companies, most of the other 30% revenue is from Politics around election time. We need to press for a Full Ban of Advertising Pharmaceutical Drugs on TV and Print Add like they did with Hard Liquor. Its just as dangerous. Advertising needs to be in the doctors offices. And Most Doctors get Cash incentives back from Drug companies, for prescribing Drugs to patients. No Conflict of interest there is it?? This is a massive problem of America doped up on needless medications.

        Lots of BS floating around the system. Always seek the truth and counter the LIARS!! BACK IN THEIR FACES!!

      Vegas Brothel”
      Excuse the language.
      They get paid to get fucked. We just get fucked!!!!

      • Genius says:

        Brandon shows his ignorance… Vegas doesn’t have brothels, prostitution is illegal there.

        • Prepperplus says:

          Lol! You’ve obviously never partied in Vegas. There are plenty of brothels and call services that the cops ignore (for a fee). Though, I think Brandon was probably referring to the legal brothels right outside of Clark County.

          • skittle shittin unicorn says:

            wow are you wrong !!!

            Brothels do not and have never existed inside of clark county Nv

            now they do have

            Bath houses
            massage services
            Pool parties
            and
            clubs that have expensive bottle service
            and the ever present call out services
            but actual brothels NO !!!!

            60 miles away in pahrump they have just the opposite

            brothels and ONLY brothels.

            know what the hell your talking about before opening your mouths

            and i am glad to see that Dumbheart has joined the official hate the Jews club
            i was wondering when he would

            must be hard to work at the mall with all those damn Jews around huh ???

            but given the fact that his screen name comes from one of the most vile hate filled actors ( if you want to call what he does acting ) in the world i guess its no surprise.

            Dumbheart never stops living down to his lowest point and will continue doing so

            hows the ” Ventilation team??
            still collecting rust in the coffee can you keep it in beside the shed you call a BOL ??

            send me your address i have some BB s for it

        • Cam Ovals says:

          So it’s illegal there, so what? You’re saying there are no brothels in Vegas? Cuz nothing “illegal” ever goes down in Vegas, right? I suggest you change your handle.

    4. D Dina says:

      “Reality only grows more ugly because we continue to ignore it.” So true.

    5. Nels says:

      Agreed to the point of illegal immigration, invasion more describes the word from a native North American. So, if you were a Native North American, would you consider the conquest of Europeans legit? Take it that yes we were conquered and must adhere to the rules of the conqueres? Different aspect eh? BUT, being Canadian here in the USA, with legal status (now), I condem illegals (Mexican/Chinese/Guatemalan/ etc etc) to the laws of the land, just as Native North American Tribes were. Interestingly, most Americans do not see themselves as invaders, but as ‘builders’, so here’s the dicotomy: I have served in the Armed forces (VA Card) and will defend this country to this day, from foreign Or domestic enemies, (Illegal immigrants or Hillary), So do ‘you’ think the USA should force it’s borders, which it has almost none with Canadian Natives, to include south facing countries which are now considered ‘invaders’?

    6. Braveheart1776 says:

      Brandon, one of the best articles about MSM I’ve ever read. They’re all owned and controlled by a certain tribe which wants to destroy the free world.

    7. aljamo says:

      Killing and stealing, it’s what our government does best. Oh wait, it’s the only thing on the table.

    8. oops says:

      In short: The Global Corporatists control the mainstream narrative, for which any critical thinker is quite obvious. It became glaringly obvious under Obama especially after he hustled AP news at the WH.
      Then the narrative was toppled by the people resulting in the DJT election. Now all of the sudden the former fact news became altnews which has been labeled as fake news in an effort to discourage critical thinkers.
      I resent the Elite NWO Corporate Globalists not for the material goods they possess but for the blood on their hands and the lies they spew.
      They are to STUPID to realize the price each of them will pay for eternity in the next life. Globalism has killed more people than all former Communist leader, combined!

      • Cam Ovals says:

        Think I’d much rather they pay the price NOW, and publicly, as well as for all eternity in the next life.

      • Frank Thoughts says:

        In Canada they have something called the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), basically the state news service. It had three ‘journalists’ who were lauded and praised to the skies. Then, it came out one of them liked to beat white women (a politically correct Muslim guy) (and went on trial for it), another openly took money from corporations, which she then pitched for in her ‘news’ reports, and another one was found to be hustling a fine art business with his interview guests.

        All three were eventually fired but it showed these media ‘stars’ were nothing but reprobates and hustlers who were just shaking the CBC down for as much money as they could get.

        As for prostitutes and the lovely women of the sex world, I would say they give far more pleasure and do a much better service for humanity than 90 per cent of ‘journalists’.

        • Anonymous says:

          You never mention the dangers they face. Or the fact that many sex workers come from sexual/physical abuse backgrounds. Or that many ply their wares only for drugs. Or those that are kidnapped or disappeared. You need to check your facts dude. Wonder how many of those workers you’ve encountered find you annoying.

        • Anonymous says:

          Yea. Knew this article would peak dude’s interest. Dude salivates on cue like a Pavlov experiment.

    9. There are eleven clinics in the New York Area devoted to dealing with the epidemic of leprosy in America, brought here by foreigners. From hundreds of cases of leprosy to tens of thousands. And our enemies want to bring more people from India, Bangledesh, Somalia, and the Middle East, and other hell holes. Thirty percent of the Africans are infected with AIDS.

      I was listening to FOX. They had an entire day devoted to covering this hot item. It is on the lips of every broadcaster in the MSM. Not. I heard about it yesterday on the Rense Radio Station. Is it true. I don’t know. But if it is true, in part or in full, should it not be the number one story?? I think it is the number one story. The truth is that our enemies are murdering us. We are the victims. That is my conclusion. Genocide of white western man in every Country across the globe. The reduction of mankind to under 500 million is not a lunatic joke in stone. It is a well coordinated plan that is being executed.

      Don’t expect to get news from your TV. I would keep TV out of my home. Stay away from public places. Clean the baby seat in grocery carts with sanitized cleaner. Wash your hands. Take shoes off at your doorway. Shower after work and put your work clothes in the laundry as soon as you get home.

      We need to stop immigration, period. Travel should be limited to healthy Countries. Put people traveling back from infected places through testing before being reintroduced into the community. If we did these things we could close down hospitals and still be better off health wise. Health insurance starts by not knowingly importing diseased people! This is deliberate! It is genocide !!

      __
      !!!

      • Frank Thoughts says:

        Good point: every communicable disease in Britain is there because of immigration. If it wasn’t for the Africans, things such as HIV would have been radically reduced by now. Instead, we have increasing rates of HIV and TB etc.

        Think about it: racially Australia is primarily from British stock. They were able to get HIV spread down to very low numbers by controlling immigration, demanding health checks, and getting homos to put things on their dicks (condoms). Hey, it works!

    10. Rick Anderson says:

      Trump is nothing but another blow hard politician. I supported his candidacy financially and I voted for him, hoping he would be the breath of fresh air our country so desperately needs. He is doing nothing about the promises he made while running (typical politician BS). I think he dropped his promise to “lock her up” the instant the criminal Clinton cabal showed him all the dirt the have dug up on him from his past. He is demanding that We the People now finance the border wall that congress won’t let him build. The communist party (read democrats) are still strong enough in both houses of congress to stop his other programs. We got screwed again people. DC is too corrupt for anyone to fix. To arms, to arms, the politicians are coming.
