#TrumpWon First Debate – US Public

trump-clinton-debateCorporate News Outlets Assert the Opposite

By James F. Tracy

It’s no secret that the same interests exerting ownership of major media regard Donald Trump’s candidacy as a very real threat to the status quo. This is reflected in the severely negative news coverage of the Trump campaign, particularly when contrasted with that of its counterpart–you know, the wife of the man who gave corporate media so much of their booty by signing into law the 1996 Telecommunications Act.

Unsurprisingly in the immediate wake of the first presidential debate of 2016 major cable news outlets unanimously argued that Donald Trump lost the matchup, or, at the very least it was “not his night.” For example, veteran MSNBC presstitute Chris Matthews effused that Clinton “cleaned [Trump’s] clock” and  was the “home run debater–the Babe Ruth of debaters.”

Yet it wasn’t simply MSNBC that lauded Clinton’s performance. FoxNews’ Dana Perino, Brit Hume and Juan Williams all pointed to Trump being “on the ropes” and “on the defensive” through much of the exchange.

Hillary Outspends Trump 33-to-1 in Campaign Advertising

Presidential Race Remains Dead Heat

hillary3“Why aren’t I fifty points ahead?!”

By James F. Tracy

With the first presidential debate just around the corner recent data from Ad Age indicates Hillary Clinton has outspent Donald Trump by about 3,300 percent for television and radio ads. Yet she has almost nothing to show for it. Most recent polling now indicates the race is a virtual dead heat in battleground states.

This despite the fact that major news media have provided very negative coverage of the Trump campaign (essentially subsidized partisan advocacy) and an overwhelming majority of deeply monied interests are supporting the Democratic candidate.

This video documents Tuskin’s arrest as he was following orders to vacate the University of Florida property on “trespassing” charges falsely alleged by Alachua County Sheriff deputy, Lt. Richard Lalonde. Tuskin later discovered that Lalonde has a record civil
rights abuses including a previous lawsuit. Tuskin secured an attorney to prosecute a case of false arrest but has not made a decision to follow through. Tuskin’s reluctance is based on fear that Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell’s deputies will continue to harass him and his family. Videographer, Ed Sanders is a UF Alum but was also unlawfully ordered to leave taxpayer supported, state property at the University of Florida, Ben Hill Griffin stadium grounds.

‘Let’s Fight Conspiracy Theories Effectively’

European academics call for statist social-psychological approach to silence public inquiry and dissent

Le Monde, 6 June 2016, p. 29
English translation

The Ministry of Education must test its pedagogical tools against conspiracy culture. The wrong cure might only serve to spread the disease.

conspiracy papers files

Conspiracy theories are on many people’s minds and are the object of all kinds of initiatives, sometimes local, sometimes more ambitious. The French government is among them, evidenced by the collaboration between the Ministry of Education and France Télévisions to produce and diffuse a ‘video-kit’, available to all in the teaching profession (https ://vimeo.com/151519913). They also explore suitable responses to the worrying spread of these ‘theories’ by proposing, here and there, an intellectual defence or critical response. Ultimately, these associations come together to fight against this particular form of contemporary misinformation known as ‘conspiracism’.

Questioning Hillary’s Health is Not Conspiracy Theory

Michael Krieger
Liberty Blitzkrieg

Ever since alternative media sources made Hillary Clinton’s health a legitimate campaign issue, much of the mainstream media has been comically and instinctively rallying around her, smugly proclaiming that anyone who questions Her Highness’ physical or mental fitness for office to be a deranged rightwing conspiracy theorist.

What’s so amusing about the tactics of these self-important pundits is their willingness to do the exact same thing they demonize “fringe bloggers” of doing: playing doctor. Most of those rushing out to confidently ensure the public that everything is just fine and dandy with Hillary Clinton’s health lack any medical credentials. They’re just journalists and pundits who have decided Hillary is fine based on a two-page letter from internist Dr. Lisa Bardack. Does writing for the Washington Post or CNN make them the authority on Hillary Clinton’s health? Of course not.

Hillary Drugged Up on Campaign Trail?

Unnerving Questions on Exiled Candidate’s Health 

No Press Conference in 250 Days!

‘Barry Soetoro’

Why have corporate media suppressed medical observations on Hillary Clinton’s apparent maladies? Has Hillary’s seizure doctor been identified? Is this the man who follows Hillary everywhere, telling her, “It’s okay,” while stabbing Hillary with anti-seizure drugs?

Why does the epilepsy doctor shoo away secret service? So Hillary won’t trigger another seizure and fall down on TV?

Despite such probable health issues, internationalists like George Soros are prodding Hillary toward the election finish line to secure US Presidency, video maker argues.

Sandy Hook, Columbine High School and Pulse nightclub share a shocking history.

On the night of June 12 2016, a gunman shot and killed 49 clubgoers in the Orlando club, injuring many more in massacre. The venue, which was built for music, dancing and celebrating with friends – now stands as a memorial site, closed and covered in flowers, balloons and photographs of those who lost their lives.

9/11 and the Zionist Question: Is Noam Chomsky a Disinfo Agent for Israel?

A Public Intellectual Outside the Protections of the Academy

The Kevin Barrett-Chomsky Dispute in Historical Perspective – Eights part of the series titled “9/11 and the Zionist Question”
Read the seventh part here.

Prof. Tony Hall
Editor In Chief, American Herald Tribune
Co-Host, False Flag Weekly News

Kevin-Barrett_dd126

Not one aspect of the officially authorized account of 9/11 has been able to withstand the test of close scrutiny by the best of the citizen investigators in the 9/11 Truth Movement. The crude vacuity of the ongoing 9/11 cover up can be seen as powerful evidence that many of our governors have much to hide about their own roles in the lies and crimes of 9/11 and in the subsequent onslaughts of state terror to which the original misrepresentations gave rise.

The persecution of Kevin Barrett in 2006 for doing his job as a conscientious Islamic Studies teacher can be seen in retrospect as telling evidence of government and media collusion in the 9/11 crime. The unfolding of this dark episode involving a devastating betrayal of academic integrity in the Wisconsin heartland of America helps expose those who have the most to lose if the real culprits of 9/11 were to be identified.

When Alex Jones Got ‘Pozner’d’

By James F. Tracy

Probing Alt Media’s Most Prominent Limited Hangout

alex-jones

On February 12 2015 alternative media personality Alex Jones mused how Lenny Pozner might have been behind an elaborate plan to “shut down” his alternative news outlet’s YouTube channels. Jones vigorously advocated for free speech, arguing that Pozner was using copyright as a means to undermine his organization’s (overall tentative) journalistic
inquiries on how the image of Sandy Hook victim Noah Pozner appeared in mass mediated photos of public mournings following the December 2014 mass shooting in Peshawar Pakistan.

This is “a reign of terror on free speech,” Jones fumed.

If they can do this to us they can do it to anybody. This copyright notification, if successful, will take down the [Alex Jones Youtube] channel, and already we’re unable to upload over 15 minute videos and are in what they call probation–guilty until proven innocent right now … And, again, if they can do this to us they can do this to anybody … The H-O-N-R or “honor” Network, Lenny Pozner, who reportedly lost his son there, came in and filed a copyright claim for us showing a BBC news article. You can’t do that. For those who don’t know how copyright works …

Hot n’heavy Jones characteristically proceeded to lecture the audience on the intricacies of copyright law, offering various examples from his alleged experiences fighting against such censorship. Yet as YouTube researcher MattyD4Truth observes in the video below, Jones never revisited the attack in subsequent programs.
