Pentagon Correspondent for the New York Times Refers to American Citizens as “Children”

Screen Shot 2014-07-12 at 1.24.54 PMYesterday afternoon, I happened to read a seemingly innocuous enough article in Time by Justin Lynch titled: Bloggers, Surveillance and Obama’s Orwellian State. The article covered the usual bases. Such as the fact the Obama Administration is the least transparent ever, how it has attacked whistleblowers and journalists more than all other Presidents combined, and how citizen journalists pose a threat to the corrupt and dying status quo. All things that we already know.

One of the people quoted in the article is Pentagon correspondent for the New York Times, Thom Shanker, who proudly noted “his employer has implemented rigorous standards to balance the security risks of reporting classified information with the public’s right to know.”

While this guy’s assumption that bureaucrats and media personalities posses this divine right to decide what the public “has a right to know,” is extremely disturbing in its own right, what it really masks is a deep seated opinion of his own superiority compared to the unwashed masses. This seems to really come out in the extraordinarily disturbing final paragraph of the article:

The government really needs to get its message out to the American people, and it knows that the best way to do that is by using the American news media, said Shanker. The relationship between the government and the media is like a marriage; it is a dysfunctional marriage to be sure, but we stay together for the kids.

That right there is why this country is in such deep shit. We have mediocre, control-freak bureaucrats in the mainstream media and government who see themselves as our parents. That we are little children who need to be told what to do. Sure, he may try to spin this as if he was talking about their respective employees, but we all know that’s not true. These people must be peacefully removed from all positions of power as soon as possible.

In Liberty,

  1. Amen, Mike. It seems that Lord Acton should have added a codicil that enjoying proximity to power tends to corrupt and absolutely delighting in proximity to power tends to corrupt absolutely.

  2. That will in Gods own time be dealt with as He gave us the ability to yes the wisdom learned to deal with all our enemies and as we all know the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, it not going to be long before He removes their crown’s

  3. The relationship between the government/media and the citizenry is like rape.

  4. New York Times cited above … is not only ‘Operation Mockingbird’ CIA ‘news’, with criminal charges registered against it in Europe for its CIA role … but its dis-info game is so thorough, that even Liberty Movement people have not realised NYT-pumped ‘Edward Snowden’ is blatantly, clearly a CIA fraud, as detailed in the Moscow report on him. The Liberty Movement has been deceived; people are so eager for a hero, they let the CIA’s media pick a fake hero for them.

    ‘Snowden revelations’ – really not very new aside from detail – are direct, media-pumped terrorisation by the US government, handing files directly to these CIA-tied ‘Snowden journalists’ – Greenwald, NY Times, Guardian – who are likely helping US gov to identify, silence, maybe even kill real dissidents and whistleblowers, duped into contacting ‘Team Snowden’.

    How is it that Snowden’s first recipient for his ‘stolen NSA documents’, was Dick Cheney’s CIA-tied friend and biographer at the CIA-tied Washington Post, anti-9-11-truth Bart Gellman, a man who was never brave about anything, and who was mentored by CIA ‘fake brave journalists’ from 40 years ago? Who except a CIA ‘fake dissident’ and liar, would ‘trust’ Dick Cheney’s pal like this?

    Report in Moscow at Russia’s SVR and FSB security agencies blows apart ‘Operation Fake Dissident Snowden’, Snowden a fake who never ‘stole’ any documents – ‘Russia gov FSB SVR report, Snowden Greenwald are CIA frauds pt1’

    How is it that Snowden is tied to America’s leading CIA-advisor for 40 years, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Snowden working with Zbig’s son Ian, and being promoted by his media daughter Mika?

    Why is it that EVERYONE in the Snowden-Assange gang, their journalists and lawyers, is hostile and even insulting to truth about 11 Sep 2001?

    How is it that Snowden’s US lawyer, Plato Cacheris, has been involved in CIA projects for over 40 years … and is ‘negotiating to bring Snowden home’?

    How is it that Snowden’s 2nd and now ‘main’ journalist, is Glenn Greenwald … Greenwald who is an ex-pornographer like Jimmy Wales ‘founder’ of the CIA’s Wikipedia … Greenwald who has now worked for 3 billionaire families, richest in USA (Gates) richest in world (Rothschilds) and now CIA-tied Omidyar … Greenwald who also was never ‘brave’ about anything … who now has 50 million dollars to do ‘great brave journalism’ and yet produces almost zero … ?

    How is that Snowden’s ‘brave media’ – NY Times, WashPost, UK Guardian – are all known as CIA ‘Operation Mockingbird’ media, who ignore most real dissidents, with the NY Times & UK Guardian having criminal charges registered against them in Europe for helping the CIA to defame EU citizens criticising the US, and supporting EU internet censorship by CIA-Google?

    How is it that Snowden doesn’t even seem to know what he ‘stole’, deferring questions to his fake ‘brave journalists’? How is it that Snowden spends his spare time giving oily praise for CIA-tied media liars, and undermining 11 Sep 01 truth?

    Purpose of ‘Operation Fake Dissident Snowden? – To terrorise the world … to pump up CIA-tied mainstream media like NY Times & Guardian & WashPost … to help destroy 9-11 truth … and likely also to entrap real whistleblowers, who get turned over to US gov after contacting Greenwald or the Guardian. The Moscow report, linked above, is devastating.

  5. The employees of major media outlets aren’t “bureaucrats”.

  6. I think the children start to act like the Menendez brothers! Remember them? Shotgun blasts to the face! But in this case the parents will deserve it! Lol

  7. Political philosophers have always regarded the masses as too immature to govern their own affairs. That is why elites drive the character of civilizations. Read Plato’s “Republic,” then follow with the modern writings of Leo Strauss and Carroll Quigley. The control systems must work or civilization falls apart.
