The salvation of liberal democracy and classical civilization has moved a step closer to becoming a reality, thanks to the election of Donald Trump.
His victory has also encouraged our European fellow travelers, while pushing the current crop of international socialists and Islamic, manifest destiny operators into a vitriol-filled panic.
However, upon sifting through the carnage left in the wake of the campaign and election, it seems that there remains something we absolutely must consider very carefully. Consider, and even (perhaps) develop and implement a policy to govern how to deal with the legacy media.
This is more than a “dance with the one that brung ya” appeal and it is much more important than a question of loyalty or revenge.This is about the polarized media roles; the one they were supposed to have played versus the one that they did play.
The fourth estate has an obligation to objectively inform the public so as to enable them to make their own decisions. Instead, the legacy media actively manipulated and concealed singularly important information, any and/or all of which might have led people to a choice that they (the government media complex itself) would not have liked.
An excellent example of this is the distinct lack of media mention of the Clintons robbing the White House as they were moving out of 1600 Penn. One doesn’t have to think hard about what the broadcast media would have done had Melania Trump been president and the Trump’s had robbed the White House on the way out.
In fact, there would be a raging debate nearly constantly on CNN whether or not having the spouse of a former 2 term president, running for the same job was a violation of the two term limit if Trump’s wife had been president in the past.
Never raised once with the Clintons.
Be clear, this is not about revenge. This is about saving democracy.
But there is something else that needs to be carefully considered and a policy of some kind put in place.
If anyone did an honest comparison of the coverage that Obama got when he ran for office, both times, Vs. the coverage that Trump got, people would be calling for guillotines in Times Square for the media collusion with leftist, DNC and Soros allied forces. And well they should. It would be richly deserved.
This shows a long-term deep policy level agenda. not a bias, not personal vendetta, but a deep deep policy level conspiracy intended to subvert the democratic process at its core.
And its no small measure of irony that it is by far leftists extremists as well as Wall Street, the DNC and mass media.
While it would behove Donald Trump to deal mostly with the alternative media who spread the information that got him elected and mostly ignore the massive corporations who conspired against him on the mere basis of dancing with who brung ya, the issue is so much bigger than that.
To save democracy we must destroy senile systems and focus on more organic ones that actually do the job.
In this case, a senile system is one where it puts more effort into protecting itself, than doing what the system was designed to do.
Think of a tank that has so much anti tank equipment on it that it cant move more than one mile an hour and has no room for ammunition or guns. What’s the point? The tank is safe but it has no value. We don’t need that exaggerated an example for a system to be considered senile. The tank would simply not be able to project enough force to be worth the cost of the armour. It is why the Iranians are building thousands of small speed boats to counter US carrier groups. Same thinking at work.
But the media case is actually worse. We have the media which has colluded with illiberal actors to destroy democracy itself in order to guarantee its own place in the hierarchy of established power brokers.
It is the definition of corruption.
And now you can smell the fear of the most disgusting of the legacy media.
The CBC, who takes money from Canadian federal taxes at a rate of approximately one point one BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR (most media could operate off of the interest of one year’s CBC tax dollars) are starting to backpedal already as you can see with that linked interview with Ann Coulter.
The New York Times has already issued an apology for their horrific and agenda driven coverage. They are apparently losing a massive number of subscribers. And once again we see the Free Market picking up the reality-deficit which the government-media complex in no small part, creates.
It is critically important that these systems be dumped. They cannot be repaired.
The very structure of these systems, the fact that they cost so much to run that stable sources of money have to be found if they want to plan ahead to the end of the week.
This means that people with an interest will step up to supply that money.
This website by contrast, is paid for by a few part time jobs I hold, and contributors to this site, and the occasional sale of a Cross of Matamoros. No one who writes for this site is going to misrepresent their opinions for those kind of stakes.
The fact is, that government regulates the broadcast media, and with the wave of a bureaucrat’s pen, hundreds of millions can be lost because a license to broadcast is not renewed.
This is especially true in Canada with the CRTC who would not grant non-leftist, SUN TV a license to broadcast on any channel someone might actually find. They subsequently closed.
Trump got elected because of mostly volunteer and somewhat oddball media people who seem to be beholden to no one, or at least if they are, to those who have the same vested interests in putting the truth out there.
Im pretty sure that Julian Assange of Wikileaks would never in a million years have wanted to actively work to elect Donald Trump. He did not conspire with Trump or anyone connected with him, nor did former NSA whistle blower, Ed Snowdon. But they did want the truth about the Clintons out there because its important to democracy.
They are being accused of helping trump and defeating Clinton. But they did no such thing. The Clintons defeated the Clintons. It was the whistle blowers, YouTubers, social media memers, LiveLeakers, bloggers, and non-beholden, non multi-million dollar media people who’s real stake was in America and the free world, who helped the Clintons defeat the Clintons by exposing who they were.
And that got Trump elected by default.
As it happens, it looks like that may have been a really good move for everyone who wants the best for the West, and for freedom and the principles of liberal democracy.
But I would hope that President Elect Trump does not just accept the crocodile tears of a frightened and senile industry, who deserve the guillotine at worst and obscurity at least, and continue business as usual.
Trump was elected on several clarion calls, one of the main ones being the corruption and bias of the media.
Now lets see Donald help them put themselves to oblivion like we all helped the Clintons do to themselves.
