    Today Mon Feb 13, 2017, they are having a meeting at the White House in WA DC to talk ABOUT POLITICAL STUFF, LIKE TRADING MONEY AND KEEPING VITAL STRONG ALLY’S.

    HOW BAD WAS CANADIAN IMMIGRATION 1992-1999?

    CANADA’S IMMIGRATION MINISTER, ELINOR CAPLAN, LATER SAID IT WAS NOT A SERIOUS OFFENSE TO PRESENT A FALSE PASSPORT TO GAIN ENTRY TO CANADA, NOTING THAT MANY LEGITIMATE REFUGEES RESORT TO DOING SO.

    HOW SERIOUS WAS THE  OFFENSE  WHEN “THAT”  FALSE PASSPORT WAS USED TO GAIN ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES FROM CANADA?

    ON DEC. 14, 1999, ALGERIAN TERRORIST AHMED RESSAM CARRYING A FAKE CANADIAN PASSPORT BEARING THE NAME BENNI NORIS AND DRIVING A LATE-MODEL CHRYSLER RENTED IN VANCOUVER, B.C., RODE THE COHO FROM VICTORIA BC TO PORT ANGELES WA USA.

    UNDER TRUDEAU, CANADA ALSO PLANS TO double IMMIGRATION LEVELS TO NEARLY HALF A MILLION PER YEAR to replace the aging Canadian population in the work force, mostly with migrants from India and China. As Breitbart London previously reported, “PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU HAS BEEN CRITICISED FOR HIS increase IN ACCEPTING MIGRANTS AS REFUGEES FROM SYRIA AND THE MIDDLE EAST.

    WILL THEY TALKING ABOUT THIS IMMIGRATION ISSUE?

     CANADIANS LEAD U.S. IMMIGRANTS IN UNAUTHORIZED visa overstays, ACCORDING TO FIRST-EVER ESTIMATES FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. Just under half of all immigrants in the country illegally are Mexican nationals, according to Pew Research. THAT SHARE MAY DECREASE IN THE COMING YEARS, AS CENTRAL AMERICAN MIGRANTS TO OUTPACE MEXICAN IN UNAUTHORIZED LAND-BASED BORDER CROSSINGS. But what about immigrants who come to the U.S. legally with a business, tourist or student visa? Most are from Canada, not Mexico, and more are from Germany than all Central American countries combined.

    DHS now estimates 93,000 Canadian overstays, more than double the amount of Mexican overstays (42,000)

    On Dec. 14, 1999, Algerian terrorist Ahmed Ressam carrying a fake Canadian passport bearing the name Benni Noris and driving a late-model Chrysler rented in Vancouver, B.C., rode the Coho from Victoria BC to Port Angeles WA USA.

    Many people on the North Olympic Peninsula read bin Laden’s name for the first time in 1999 after Ressam drove off the MV Coho ferry with explosives.

    Algerian terrorist Ahmed Ressam drove into my home town with 100 pounds of explosive materials hidden in the trunk’s wheel well, four blocks from my home.

    Ressam.  moved to France, where he lived illegally until 1994,

    February 1994 + 27-year-old Ressam flew from France to Montreal. At the airport, he was stopped by immigration officials who suspected that his passport was false. Ressam requested political asylum.

    Canadian immigration agents accepted his story and released him pending a hearing on his refugee status.

    Canada’s Immigration Minister, Elinor Caplan, later said it was not a serious offense to present a false passport to gain entry to Canada, noting that many legitimate refugees resort to doing so.

    Ressam lived in Montreal for four years. He took up residence in an apartment building later identified by Canadian and international police as the Montreal headquarters of a terrorist cell connected to the Osama bin Laden network, and, more specifically, to an Algerian terrorist organization called the Armed Islamic Group, or GIA.

    he was arrested for  thefts only four times, and convicted only once. He served no jail time for that conviction, but paid a fine. Despite his arrests, he continued to draw welfare benefits of $500 per month, which he was entitled to as a potential refugee.

    During this time, Ressam says that he and an associate, Mokhtar Haouari, another Algerian refugee claimant, engaged in…They also provided Canadian passports and other identity documents to terrorist associates around the world.

    1995 After missing a June hearing on his application for political asylum, Ressam’s application was denied and a warrant for his arrest was issued. However, he evaded immigration authorities and was never deported. He had developed a new identity for himself by filling in the blanks of a stolen baptismal certificate form with the alias “Benni Antoine Noris.” Using the forged baptismal certificate, he then obtained a Canadian passport in that name.

    1996 + French authorities link Ressam to Algerian terrorist group

    French investigators notified CSIS, the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service, about this evidence of GIA terrorist activity in Montreal.

    According to CSIS officials, Ressam was under surveillance as part of a large investigation into a suspected terrorist ring from 1996 until he left for Afghanistan in 1998.

    March 17, 1998 + Trip to Afghanistan for jihad training

    Ressam left Montreal and headed for Afghanistan for terrorist training at the camps funded and administered by Osama bin Laden. He traveled first to Peshawar, a city in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghanistan border,

    He says that he was assigned to the European-based cell of the Algerian group in the camp, and that the members of the cell planned to travel separately and meet in Canada to commence “an operation” in America before the end of 1999. Before he left for North America, Ressam says that Zubaida requested that Ressam send original Canadian passports to be supplied to other members of the network.

    February 1999 + Return to Canada

    April 1999 + French investigators request search warrants

    French investigating magistrate Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere sent a formal letter to Canadian justice authorities asking for search warrants to be executed in Montreal in his investigation of Algerian terrorists, including Ahmed Ressam, who was specifically named.

    It took Canada six months to process the request.

    As part of the public comment period for California’s Flood Future, DWR and USACE … In addition to tragic loss of life, flooding in California can have a serious …

    Key findings from California’s Flood Future include:

    • CALIFORNIA IS AT CATASTROPHIC RISK FOR DEVASTATING FLOODS.California’s diverse geography contributes to the state’s significant flood risk. In many regions, peak flows — the largest volume of water flowing per second through a water system — occur in a very short time frame, which spells disaster.
    • Flooding is a statewide problem. Every California county has experienced a federally declared flood disaster in the past 20 years. Counties with relatively low risk for a major flood event would be impacted by the results of a catastrophic flood elsewhere in the state, when employment centers, transportation facilities, utilities and the economy are affected.
    • THE IMPACTS OF A MAJOR FLOOD WOULD BE DEVASTATING TO CALIFORNIA AND TO THE NATION.In addition to tragic loss of life, flooding in California can have a serious impact on its economy and environmental resources. A major flood in California, which has one of the world’s largest economies, will have an unprecedented impact on the national economy as well. With many more people and structures per square mile in California’s urban areas, the state would likely see much higher recovery costs from a major flood than the $110 billion that has been spent on recovery from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita or the $60 billion that has been appropriated for recovery from Superstorm Sandy.

    California, Flood Risk, and the National Flood Insurance Program …

    DEC 14, 2016 – The US National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is an imperfect framework … Since 1994, NFIP damage payouts in California have totaled just 14% of … annual policies since 1994, and records of properties with multiple payouts … Statewide, roughly 7 million people and $580 billion in buildings, public …

    by Nicholas Pinter, Rui Hui, and Kathy Schaefer

    ACROSS THE US AND WORLDWIDE, FLOODING IS THE DEADLIEST AND MOST COSTLY NATURAL DISASTER.  The US National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is an imperfect framework for reducing flood losses, but currently the best we’ve got.  NFIP IS SCHEDULED FOR CONGRESSIONAL REAUTHORIZATION IN 2017, and this debate promises to be lively.  The Natural Hazards Research and Mitigation Group at UC Davis has been analyzing NFIP DATABASES, EXAMINING PATTERNS OVER THE HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM AND FOCUSING ON FLOOD LOSSES AND FLOOD INSURANCE, PARTICULARLY IN CALIFORNIA.

    Over the history of NFIP, California is one of a few states that has – through dry years and wet – received only a small fraction of payments from NFIP compared to the premiums it has paid in.  Since 1994, NFIP damage payouts in California have totaled just 14% of premiums collected (compared to 560% for the biggest recipient state, Mississippi).  For California, this imbalance exceeds $3 billion (2015 dollars) over 21 years, funds that could have been invested in risk-reduction, floodplain management, and reduced premiums.

    California has unparalleled expertise and a culture of progressive solutions for managing its flood risk; the state also has unique needs and intense pressures looking forward.  WITH THE US NFIP FACING AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE – >$20 BILLION IN DEBT, AND WITH A CHALLENGING CONGRESSIONAL REAUTHORIZATION DISCUSSION LOOMING IN 2017 – we recommend a careful look at California’s place in the NFIP.  In particular, CALIFORNIA SHOULD NOW EXPLORE A STATE FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM, WITH SAVINGS INVESTED IN LONG-TERM RISK REDUCTION.  Properly implemented, a state-based insurance program and proactive flood mitigation strategies could synergistically benefit the environment, agriculture, recreation, and water resources.  THIS APPROACH HAS MAJOR CHALLENGES, WITH IMPLICATIONS BOTH FOR CALIFORNIA AND NATIONWIDE THAT SHOULD BE EXPLORED.

    THE GREAT FLOOD IN CALIFORNIA.; Great Destruction of Property Damage $10,000,000.

    The destruction of property was terrible. The water came so rapidly that most people had not more than an hour’s warning of the danger.

    Men, women, and children had stayed in houses thinking there was no danger; and when the flood rose they could not get away. Some of these houses were carried off, and boats were sent after them to rescue the human freight.

    And now, on the morning of the 9th of November,

    HERE CAME “THE AMERICAN RIVER” WITH A FLOOD THAT COVERED THE WHOLE COUNTRY.

    NORTHERN CALIFORNIA’S GREAT FLOOD OF 1997

    More than 100,000 Central Valley residents fled towns and farms, bracing for a wall of runoff flowing down from the Sierra. The National Weather Service ranks this as one of the five most disastrous weather events to hit California in the 1900s.

    The flooding’s toll came to eight dead, $1.8 billion in economic losses, 23,000 homes destroyed, and 2,000 businesses damaged or decimated. FORTY-EIGHT COUNTIES WERE DECLARED DISASTER AREAS, INCLUDING ALL 46 IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.

    Full unedited comment…

    By Conservative “Lee” on June 26, 2014

    Having lived on or near Indian reservations most of my 70 years, I find this book one of the most refreshing of modern day reads

    as it places the spotlight exactly where it needs to be placed.

    THOSE IN CONTROL OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

     ARE USING RESERVATIONS AND THE TRIBES THEMSELVES AS NOTHING MORE THAN TOOLS

     TO ACHIEVE WHAT THE GOVERNMENT MOST DESIRES IN THIS DAY AND AGE, THAT BEING THE TOTAL SUBJECTION OF PEOPLES.

    Sadder still is that the tribes leadership are playing right into the hands of the feeders from Washington.

     The Indian people who are American citizens have been beaten into submission so often they are at the point where they actually believe that this is their lot in life and while they will strike out at non-Indians around them and place blame on their neighbors

     they seem unable to recognize who the actual enslaver is DUE TO THE CONSTANT STREAM OF LIES BEING FORCED UPON THEM BY THEIR ALLEGED BENEFACTORS,  THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND TRIBAL LEADERS.

    A more factual book I have never read, and you can be certain of one thing, this book will never be placed in the hands of tribal citizens by anyone connected in government be it tribal, state or Federal because these governments working hand in hand, can ill afford the opening of a can of worms titled, “Going to Pieces,”

     AND WORSE STILL IS THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ON THE WHOLE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE

     which is truly sad given the numbers of times we as citizens have gone to war in foreign lands because we were told that those people were being enslaved and many of those in the uniform of the United States were Indians yet somehow when they return home they forget what it was they went and fought for.

    Toni’s  text continued…

    Because of federal land-taking, we now have a broken county with a median household income less than the State of Mississippi. My father owned a sawmill here in the 1940’s; anyone who wanted to work could easily find a job. In the 1960’s, Josephine County had 53 sawmills; the revenue for Public Safety was around $18 million per year. Josephine County, Oregon, has relied on the use of our natural resources for Public Safety, Education, and necessary Public Projects. We now live under the constant threat of having to close the jail; and this July we will receive our last congressional subsidy of $4.3 million. Use of our resources has declined to the point that we are now an impoverished county largely dependent on welfare and government social services.

    Yesterday—the last remaining sawmill in our county closed indefinitely because they could not get enough logs to fill orders. We’ve gone from 19 sheriff’s patrols to a budget for only three patrols by this summer. Our County government laid off 127 people in 2012; 90 of those people were in the Sheriff’s Department.

    All promises from the Federal government to Josephine County have been broken. The government has not honored its commitment in the 1937 O&C Act, and the Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service have reduced the timber harvests for two decades.

    The BLM and Forest Service close vital roads throughout the county, so that we can’t put out forest fires. Those agencies then refuse to let us log the burnt areas and derive some income from the catastrophe. Management of our lands by Washington, DC, has proved to be a disaster to our county, both in terms of revenue for necessary services and in terms of modern forest management practices for sustainability.

    The EPA runs roughshod over our private and public lands; overly-zealous environmental activists derive much of their income from government grants. Environmental groups consistently portray logging as environmentally-destructive “clear-cutting”, when in fact, timber companies in Oregon are well-known for responsible, sustainable forest management.

    With this loss of use of our land to generate revenue and provide jobs come many of the predictable social problems, as indicated on the following page: drug abuse, health problems, rise in student dropout rate, children living in poverty, increased homelessness, and reliance on welfare subsidies. This is the result of not having control and benefit of our county land.

     Poverty in Josephine County has reached the point that we cannot pass a property tax levy to fund public safety. Having bare bones public safety negatively impacts our ability to retain and attract businesses and qualified workers.

    We would appreciate the support of Presidential Candidate Donald Trump for the transfer of our lands from federal mismanagement. We need your help to prevent further loss and to reverse the losses that have plunged our county into poverty. Whichever candidate emerges from the Presidential race, we will be looking to support the candidate who will be in favor of transferring the control of public lands to the states. If you want to Make America Great Again, start with Josephine County and help us help ourselves.

    Human toll of Washington D.C. edicts — especially Siskiyou Co.

    by Liz Bowen

    PNP comment: The below info was recently brought to our attention by Pearl Hewett in Clallam County, Washington, who stated her county has the same problems as Siskiyou in California and Josephine Co. in Oregon. Below is the link to Pearl’s webpage connecting the dots. Also, a BIG thank you to our local KARE Assoc. for putting these facts together. They have followed and documented the destruction to the environment by the Greenies and government for more than 25 years! — Editor Liz Bowen

     From KARE, Klamath Alliance for Resources and Environment in Siskiyou County, CA.

    The Human Toll in Siskiyou County

    Siskiyou County has been hard hit by the environmental movement during the past twenty years. Time and again, we are promised that tourism will rise and offset any damage to our resource driven economy, and yet those dollars refuse to materialize. For 20 years, timber has been excluded from our national forests (see this shocking graph) which consume nearly two thirds of our entire county. Mining has been all but eliminated, agriculture (the largest remaining industry in this county) and now KS Wild has the temerity to claim that our county will be better off with another 200,000 acres (of 600,000 total) of timberland locked up in some “climate refuge?” Next time somebody trots out that line, give them some of these demographic statistics:

    Unemployment, July 2011

    (State wide data by county: PDF file)

    California: 12.4%

    Siskiyou Co: 16.6%

    Shasta Co: 15.0%

    Modoc Co: 13.9%

    Humboldt Co: 11.9%

    LA Co: 13.3%

    Sacramento Co: 12.9%

    San Franscsco Co: 9.0%

    Siskiyou County 2010 Snapshot

    (PDF file)

    Population: around 48,000

    The median age of the population is 43

    36% of the population is employed

    Unemployment is 18.5%

    Median Household Income $35,692 ($59,928 for CA)

    28% of households have children under 18 (46% USA)

    18% of the population lives below the poverty line (13% CA)

    27% of children live below the poverty line (18.5% CA)

    18% of the population is eligible for food stamps

    22% are eligible for Medi-Cal programs (18% CA)

    Substantiation of Child Abuse and Neglect 31.7 per 1,000 ( 9/1,000 for CA)

    Siskiyou Co. has higher rates of all violent crime (aggravated assaults, forcible rape and robbery) except homicide than Los Angeles Co. 11% of Seniors aged 60 and above have been abused.

    Methamphetamine accounts for 44% of substance abuse treatment admissions. Roughly 11.9 percent of adolescents under 18 reported binge drinking over the past month (CA 6.6 percent.)

    Of youth between age 10-17 admitted for treatment, 72% were for marijuana, 17% methamphetamine, and 11% alcohol. 83% were male. This age group also accounts for 13% of drug-related arrests.

    Individuals between 25 and 34 years account for 25 percent of admissions to alcohol and drug treatment. This age group also accounts for 22 percent of drug related arrests

    Individuals between 35 and 44 years accounts for 27 percent of alcohol-related arrests

    Twenty Year Trends

    (PDF file)

    Demographic Trends — Age distribution: The census indicates that between 1990 and 2008, Siskiyou County experienced a 25% loss in the population of children under the age of 18. The County saw a 45% increase in the population age 45-64 and an 18% increase of those age 65 and older. This shows that our population is aging dramatically, and younger family wage earners are migrating elsewhere.

    Income Trends; The BEA (Bureau of Economic Analysis) indicates that in 1987, the average wage for jobs in Siskiyou County were 73% of the California average. There was a steady decline down to as low as 57% in the year 2000, then the percentage stabilized at 61 % with an increase to 63% in 2008. This shows that our wages are depressed, not keeping pace with inflation and the rest of the state.

    Unemployment — The EDD statistics indicate that from 1990-2009, the highest rates of unemployment occurred in individual months in 1991-1993 (19.3-21.1%.) The average rate of unemployment for 1991 was 13.2, for 1992 — 15.8 and for 1993 -15.6. This high rate likely reflects the closure of the four timber mills in Siskiyou County between 1989-1999. The rate of unemployment then very gradually decreased each year until it plateaued around 2001 -2007 at 8-9.5% It climbed to an average of 10.2% in 2008 and was at 15.8% average in 2009.

    Median Household Income The census (SAIPE) reports that in 1989, the median household income of Siskiyou County residents was $22,077. This was 66% of the California median, (down $11,000 from the CA median.) In 2008, the Siskiyou County median was $36,823. It had decreased to 60% of the California median, (down $24,000 from the CA median household income.) Siskiyou County ranks 51 out of 58 California Counties in median income.

    Poverty Rates — The census (SAIPE) reports that in 1989, 14.4% of Siskiyou County residents lived below the poverty line. This was 1.7% higher than the poverty rate for California in general. In 1989, 23.5% of children under 18 in Siskiyou County lived in poverty. This was 2.2% higher than the California rate. In 2008, 16.4% of all residents in Siskiyou County lived in poverty. This is a 2 percent increase in the rate over that of 1989 and is 3.1% higher than the California rate. In 2008, 25.4% of children under the age of 18 in Siskiyou County lived in poverty. That is a 2 percent increase in the rate over that of 1989 and is 6.9% greater than the California rate.

    Summary Comment: Siskiyou County is an aging county. A large percentage of children in the county live in poverty and this is getting worse. Average wages are poor compared to the rest of California and getting worse. The household median income in the County has historically lagged far behind that of California and is getting worse. Unemployment has always been substantially higher than California in general. After stabilizing from high employment in the aftermath of mill closures and Forest Service layoffs, unemployment has substantially increased in the past two years and is climbing. It is currently 15.6% (May 2010.) The well-being of a substantial number of Siskiyou County residents is depressed and trending downward.

    7 Things About The Mainstream Media That They Do Not Want You To …

    Michael Snyder
    Economic Collapse
    May 21, 2013

    HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHO CONTROLS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA?  In America today, we are more “connected” than ever.  The average American watches 153 hours of television a month, and we also spend countless hours watching movies, playing video games, listening to music, reading books and surfing the Internet.

    IF SOMEONE COULD CONTROL THE PRODUCTION OF ALL OF THAT MEDIA, THAT WOULD MAKE THEM IMMENSELY POWERFUL.  THEY WOULD LITERALLY BE IN A POSITION TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT TO THINK.

      Well, what if I told you that there are just six enormous media conglomerates that combine to produce about 90 percent of all the media that Americans consume.

    WOULD THAT ALARM YOU?  It should alarm you.  The truth is that our attitudes, opinions and beliefs are greatly shaped by what we allow into our minds. 

    AFTER ALL, THEY DON’T CALL IT “PROGRAMMING” FOR NO REASON.  Even those of us that realize that we are connected to “the matrix” probably greatly underestimate the tremendous influence that the media has over us. 

    We live at a time when it is absolutely imperative to think for ourselves, but most Americans are being absolutely overwhelmed with information and seem more than content to let others do their thinking for them. 

    SADLY, THIS IS GREATLY CONTRIBUTING TO THE DOWNFALL OF OUR SOCIETY.

    And of course the mainstream media desperately does not want you to look at “the man behind the curtain”.  They just want you to stay plugged into the “programming” that they are feeding you without asking any questions.

    Fortunately, a growing minority of Americans are waking up and are starting to reject the mainstream media.  An increasing number of people are beginning to recognize that the mainstream media is the mouthpiece of the establishment and that it is promoting the agenda of the establishment.

    So why is the mainstream media so bad?  The following are 7 things about the mainstream media that they do not want you to know…

    #1 The Mainstream Media Has Very Deep Ties To The Establishment

    Did you know that the president of CBS and the president of ABC both have brothers that are top officials in the Obama administration?

    The big news networks have developed an almost incestuous relationship with the federal government in recent years.  But of course the same could be said of the relationship that the media has with the big corporations that own stock in their parent companies and that advertise on their networks.

    This is one of the reasons why we very rarely ever see any hard hitting stories on the big networks anymore.  THE FLOW OF INFORMATION THROUGH THE CORPORATE-DOMINATED MEDIA IS VERY TIGHTLY CONTROLLED, AND THERE ARE A LOT OF GATEKEEPERS THAT MAKE SURE THAT THE “WRONG STORIES” DON’T GET PUT OUT TO THE PUBLIC.  As a result, many of the “big stories” that have come out in recent years were originally broken by the alternative media.

    #2 The Mainstream Media Gets Things Wrong Very Frequently

    Even prominent members of the mainstream media admit that this is the case.  For example, during a recent speech at Quinnipiac University CBS anchor Scott Pelley confessed that journalists in the mainstream media “are getting big stories wrong, over and over again”

    “Let me take the first arrow: During our coverage of Newtown, I sat on my set and I reported that Nancy Lanza was a teacher at the school. And that her son had attacked her classroom. It’s a hell of a story, but it was dead wrong. Now, I was the managing editor, I made the decision to go ahead with that and I did, and that’s what I said, and I was absolutely wrong. So let me just take the first arrow here.”

    #3 The American Public Does Not Consider The Media To Be Very Trustworthy

    Trust in the mainstream media has definitely been slipping.  In fact, a Gallup poll taken last year found that distrust of the media had reached an all-time high.  According to that poll, 60 percent of Americans “have little or no trust” that the media is reporting the news accurately.

    A separate Rasmussen Reports survey found that only 6 percent of all Americans consider the news media to be “very trustworthy”.

    Hopefully this trend will accelerate and a lot more people will stop trusting the media blindly.

    #4 The Mainstream Media And The Politicians That They Worship Hate The Fact That They Cannot Control Internet News Sites

    IN THE OLD DAYS, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAD A VIRTUAL MONOPOLY ON THE NEWS.  BUT THESE DAYS, ANYONE WITH AN INTERNET CONNECTION CAN PUT UP A NEWS SITE,

    AND THIS IS DRIVING THE ESTABLISHMENT ABSOLUTELY BONKERS.

    For example, Barack Obama is known to have a great dislike for the alternative media.  The following is from a recent WND article

    NBC News Political Director Chuck Todd says President Obama was making it “clear” at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend how he feels about the rise of Internet news sites like Politico, Buzzfeed and … well, WND.

    “He hates it.”

    Appearing on “Meet the Press” Sunday morning following Saturday night’s media, politics and celebrity soiree, Todd explained the president’s disdain for independent online news sources was showing during his speech.

    “It did seem … I thought his pot shots, joke-wise, and then the serious stuff about the Internet, the rise of the Internet media and social media and all that stuff – he hates it, OK? He hates this part of the media,” Todd said. “He really thinks that the, sort of, the buzzification – this isn’t just about Buzzfeed or Politico and all this stuff – he thinks that sort of coverage of political media has hurt political discourse. He hates it. And I think he was just trying to make that clear last night.”

    #5 The Mainstream Media Is Extremely Liberal

    When it comes to politics, the mainstream media is far more liberal than the general population is.

    For example, one survey found that 41 percent of American voters believe that the average reporter is more liberal than they are, while only 18 percent believe that the average reporter is more conservative than they are.

    A very disturbing UCLA study on media bias discovered that the vast majority of media outlets are “left of center”…

    Of the 20 major media outlets studied, 18 scored left of center, with CBS’ “Evening News,” The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times ranking second, third and fourth most liberal behind the news pages of The Wall Street Journal.

    And even MSNBC has confirmed the liberal bias of the media.  According to MSNBC, mainstream journalists are far more likely to donate their own money to Democrats than they are to Republicans…

    MSNBC.com identified 143 journalists who made political contributions from 2004 through the start of the 2008 campaign, according to the public records of the Federal Election Commission. Most of the newsroom checkbooks leaned to the left: 125 journalists gave to Democrats and liberal causes. Only 16 gave to Republicans. Two gave to both parties.

    #6 Six Mammoth Media Corporations Produce About 90 Percent Of The Media That Americans Consume

    As I mentioned at the top of this article, there are six giant media behemoths that control almost all of the media that we consume.  These corporate giants own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, video game makers, music labels and even many of our favorite websites.

    The media ownership chart posted below originally comes from a previous article that I authored entitled “Who Owns The Media? The 6 Monolithic Corporations That Control Almost Everything We Watch, Hear And Read“, but it has been updated to reflect some of the latest information.  The power that these companies have is so vast that it is hard to put into words…

    #7 The American People Are Absolutely Addicted To The Mainstream Media

    In a previous article about the media, I noted that the average American watches 153 hours of television a month.

    When you allow that much information to be downloaded into your brain, it is going to have a dramatic impact on how you think.

    Americans are more “connected” than they ever have been before.  This is especially true of our kids.  They are constantly on one sort of electronic device or another.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article by Daniel Taylor

    According to a 2010 LA Times report, young people spend on average 53 hours a week watching TV, playing video games, and sitting at the computer.

    Facebook users spend about 15 hours a month on the social networking site.

    People are walking – and driving – blindly while texting, sometimes walking into fountains and even falling off cliffs.

    If that Los Angeles Times report is true, that means that our young people are spending more than 200 hours a month connected to the media.

    But we are only awake for about 480 hours a month.

    When it comes to influencing the American people, nobody has more power than the big media companies do.

    And until we can break this sick addiction to the mainstream media and get people to start thinking for themselves, we will never see widespread changes in our society.  As long as people are being “programmed” by the mainstream media, they will continue to express the opinions, attitudes and beliefs that have been downloaded into their minds.

    Please share this article with as many people as you can.  It is crucial that we wake as many people up as possible while we still can.

    SO WHO CARES? WHAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA’S, MASS MEDIA PUNDITS COMMENT OR GIVE THEIR OPINION ON?

    What is a Pundit?

    A PUNDIT (sometimes also called a talking head) is a person who offers to MASS MEDIA his or her OPINION OR COMMENTARY on a particular subject area (most typically political analysis, the social sciences, technology or sport) on which he or she is knowledgeable (OR CAN AT LEAST APPEAR TO BE KNOWLEDGEABLE), or considered

    TO BE KNOWLEDGEABLE,  by definition Alert and fully informed highly educated; having extensive information or understanding

    OR AT LEAST, CAN APPEAR TO BE KNOWLEDGEABLE?
