More polling finds trust in pro-government media at all-time low

Antigovernment News reports that a new poll supports Gallup polling which shows Americans’ trust in “mainstream” (government supported and supporting) media is at an all-time low.

New, Edelman survey finds just 46 percent of Americans trust traditional media. That’s the lowest number ever recorded in the 20 years that Edelman has obtained the data.

A clear majority (56%) believe mainstream (government supported and supporting) media is “purposely trying to mislead people by saying things they know are false or gross exaggerations.”

The Edelman number tracks with Gallup’s findings. Gallup, over the past decade, has consistently put the percentage of Americans’ trust in media in the low 40s.

As with seemingly every major issue in America these days, the party divide is stark. Gallup’s 2020 results found that 73 percent of Democrats trust the media, while only 10 percent of Republicans do. The new Edelman numbers are in line with that schism. A post-election follow-up to the Edelman survey shows 57 percent of Democrats trust the media, compared to just 18 percent of Republicans.

Government sought to frame alternative social media by planting violent posts


According to Andrew Torba, CEO of Gab–a social media platform launched in 2016–the CIA has been trying to frame Gab by planting violent posts on the independent platform leading up to the Jan. 6, 2020 protests at the U.S. Capitol.

Torba suspects the CIA and other government agencies are actively trying to scrub the internet of all platforms except Google, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and other pro-government platforms.

Each of the mainstream pro-government platforms imposes strict censorship tools to delegitimize and ban criticism of government.

During the lead up to Jan. 6, 2020 (the date in which the electoral college votes in the 2020 presidential election would be counted in Congress), Gab experienced numerous new subscribers who posted many violent posts.

Torba believes the government planted the fake accounts in order to frame Gab for the alleged violence that was expected at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Government-supporting “mainstream” journalism continues to lose readership

So-called “mainstream” news–news which supports (and is supported by) the state–has been losing market share compared to independent journalism for years. Readers won’t pay to consume pro-government propaganda.

2020 saw a 200% increase in the number of lost journalism jobs, compared to 2019.

“Across broadcast, digital and print news, the news industry was hit with 16,160 job cuts — a figure that is also 13% higher than the previous record of 14,265 newsroom job cuts reported in 2008.”

The grim numbers come as multiple news organizations and TV news networks, including Fox News, ABC News, BuzzFeed, Vox Media, Vice Media, the New York Post, The Atlantic, Fortune magazine, the Tampa Bay Times and the New York Times, announced layoffs across their news and business divisions in 2020.

U.S. government pushing hard to have total control and live surveillance of all cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are promoted as decentralized and pathways to independence and financial privacy. But governments around the world are seeking to extend total control over all trading of crypto.

The SEC now requires that all persons who purchase or own over $3,000 of cryptocurrency be identified by Social Security Number, name and home address. In practice, this means that crypto platforms all require SSNs and identifying information for everyone who signs up to own or trade the currencies.

Now the government is seeking even more knowledge and power over crypto. The SEC is even suing Ripple and seeking to designate Ripple and XRP as “securities.” See here.

Confirmed: IMF and Word Bank are BRIBING world governments to destroy their economies with covid mandates

Belarus is one of the few countries which has ignored calls to lock down amid the alleged global covid pandemic.

According to Armstrong Economics, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said last month via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BelTA., that World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of “Covid Relief Aid.” In exchange for $940 million USD, the World Bank and IMF demanded that the President of Belarus:

• imposed “extreme lockdown on his people”
• force them to wear face masks
• impose very strict curfews
• impose a police state
• crash the economy

Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko REFUSED the offer.

Less than 1 week after first U.S. vaccinations, adverse reactions are already outpacing other vaccines

Vaccinations for covid-19 began on Friday, December 18, 2020 with many public officials and medical providers getting the first alleged inoculations (many on camera).

But adverse reactions are already outpacing those experienced from previous vaccination programs.

Dr. Moncef Saoui, the chief scientific adviser for Operation Warp Speed said “the frequency of allergic reactions to the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine is higher than what would be expected” from other vaccines.

Although mainstream news and the public health community are working overtime to put on a happy, smiling face during the covid vaccine rollout, news and rumors of many serious side effects are already emerging. “A health care worker in New York City had a serious adverse reaction.”

At least three Alaska health care workers are known to have suffered severe reactions, requiring hospitalization or medical treatment.

Tennessee nurse Tiffany Dover collapsed live on camera 17 minutes after being injected. She still has not been seen or returned to work, and mainstream media has scrambled to deny reports that Dover DIED from the vaccination. Reuters news service even published a story reassuring readers that Dover’s on-camera collapse was not evidence of a mass genocide program.

Socialist New York is About to get more Socialist

Hundreds of thousands are fleeing.

Just over half of the State’s income taxes are paid by the richest 2%.

New York legislature prepares to increase taxes on the few remaining rich.

According to the Wall Street Journal, “Just over half of the roughly $50 billion New York collects each year of personal income taxes is paid by 188,000 tax filers—the highest-earning 2% of the state’s tax base, according to the state budget office.”

New York and neighboring New Jersey have the highest income taxes in the U.S. Both have been losing their wealthiest taxpayers steadily for years.
“The number of these [extremely rich] filers in New York,[. . .] grew by a smaller percentage than for the nation as a whole between 2010 and 2018, according to IRS data.”

Covid shutdowns had NO MEASURABLE IMPACT on atmospheric CO2

The hyped Covid-19 scare has given an opportunity for promoters of the climate doomsday crisis to test their theories. One notion commonly held by climate doomsday panic promoters is that productive capitalism and free markets are to blame for CO2 (and–by extension–global warming).

According to this theory, governments must shut down, limit, restrict and lock down capitalism to limit human-produced CO2 in the atmosphere.

The covid lockdowns and restrictions are therefore an opportunity to put this theory to a test.

Indeed, many voices in the climate doomsday community have openly said that the solutions to the supposed covid and supposed climate problems are the same solutions.

So–Did the violent lockdowns that started in March 2020 across the western world reduce CO2 in the atmosphere?

Turns out, not so much. Humans account for less than 5% of the CO2 in the atmosphere in most years (often below 3%). TO DATE, NO MEASURABLE DIFFERENCE IN CO2 LEVELS HAS BEEN DETECTED. See here.

The Interrogation: USPS agents interview whistleblower, get him to “update” his affidavit, and then immediately leak the “update” to Democrats and the Washington Post—which runs headline saying the whistleblower “retracted” his statement

By Roger Roots, J.D., Ph.D.,

Every trial lawyer knows that leading questions can be used to sculpt and shape a witness’s testimony to conform to the lawyer’s narrative. A leading question is one that leads a witness to an answer, by either suggesting the answer or by substituting the words of the questioner for those of the witness. In effect, a questioner—by use of leading questions—becomes the author rather than the receiver of the narrative.

Last week, the world was treated to headlines announcing “Postal worker recanted allegations of ballot tampering” (Washington Post), “Erie postal worker admits fabricating Trump-pushed claims of voter fraud” (TribLive), “Officials: Postal worker recants ballot-tampering claims” (Seattle Times), “Postal worker withdraws claim that ballots were backdated in Pennsylvania” (New York Times), and “Postal worker admits fabricating allegations of ballot tampering, reports say” (msn.com).

The headlines relate to a story of a U.S. Postal carrier in Eerie, PA, Richard Hopkins, who, on November 5 (two days AFTER election day) overheard a discussion by his supervisor about postmarking ballots mailed on November 4th as having been mailed on the 3rd. Another of Hopkins’ supervisors was openly urging all carriers to continue collecting ballots after the election was over as if the ballots were timely postmarked. (PA elections officials were still, at that time, counting votes.)

Hopkins’ supervisor’s instructions were highly illegal (unless there was an intent to strictly separate and exclude the late ballots from valid timely ballots). Nothing in these supervisors’ instructions indicated an innocent intent; indeed, the mere fact that the late ballots were to be packaged separately from ordinary mail—which travels onward from Eerie to Pittsburgh for accurate postmarking—suggests an intent by USPS officials to evade accurate postmarking.

Hopkins himself encountered a late ballot on his route later that day. He took pains to write “11/05/20” on the envelope before depositing it in the ballot bin at the Eerie Post Office. Hopkins also shared his concerns that his USPS supervisors were apparently abetting election fraud with coworkers and then with Project Veritas.

Project Veritas shared Hopkins’ story nationwide, and soon the Trump Campaign—already in high gear to challenge PA election improprieties—obtained an affidavit from Hopkins regarding his account.

Hopkins’ revelations had far-reaching implications. The left, the mainstream news, and the establishment (do I repeat myself) were determined to dampen all claims of election fraud in order to fast-track the coronation of Joe Biden as president. Hopkins’ story threw a bit of a wrench into the mainstream storyline.

In any other year, state and local election officials conduct and administer American elections. But in 2020, the U.S. Postal Service became a major player in the national election (for preposterous reasons which would require another article to recount). The USPS, like all federal agencies, is staffed overwhelmingly by Democrats. By some calculations, some 95 percent of campaign donations over $200 by federal employees go to Democrats. In 2016, the USPS unlawfully gave time off and other benefits to Postal employees who campaigned for Hillary Clinton.

Hours after nationwide publicity about the Hopkins affidavit hit the airwaves, the USPS Office of Inspector General (IG) dispatched a pair of high-level fixers to Eerie. One of the USPS fixers—Russ Strasser—had an extensive military intelligence background and has reportedly posted anti-Trump comments on his social media accounts (now scrubbed).

On Monday, November 9, Agents Strasser and Chris Klein subjected Hopkins to an hours-long interview that can only be described as Kafkaesque. Hopkins, a marine veteran with too much trust in government, turned out to be an easy mark. The agents dominated some ninety percent of the conversation.

The interview began with giggly and girlish tones, as Agent Strasser said he wanted to simply “chat” with Hopkins. Soon, however, Strasser was directing Hopkins to sign a waiver of his Miranda rights and then to read the waiver aloud. The giggly chitchat session was interlaced with solemn reminders of the gravity of the situation. For his part, Hopkins never strayed from his original story: the USPS at the Eerie Station was collecting invalid, late ballots and treating them as if they were timely and valid.

After hours of repeated grilling, however, the agents got Hopkins to admit that he never actually heard the word “backdate.” Hopkins also conceded that he did not actually witness his supervisors doing any backdating of ballots. And was it possible that Hopkins may have misheard things or that there might be an innocent explanation—say, hypothetically, that the supervisor was merely discussing postmarks on the ballots without any intention to comingle those marked “the Third” with those marked “the Fourth”? Hopkins said it was possible.

The fixers moved in for the kill. “Right now, I’m not going to [subject Hopkins to] a polygraph.” “I think we are better off if we do an updated signed statement.” “Are you with me on that?” Agent Strasser and Agent Klein then began drafting an “update” to Hopkins’ affidavit.

Strasser dictated the new wording to Hopkins: “And I think what we need to amend it is ‘from what I heard from the conversation, my logical assumption was that [the Eerie postmaster] was suggesting that they’re backdating ballots . . .” So after hours of manipulation, the agents changed Hopkins’ testimony about witnessing a scheme to backdate late-received ballots to a testimony about Hopkins’ “logical assumption” being that USPS officials were discussing backdating ballots.

The agents must have almost immediately leaked the news of the “updated” statement to anxiously-awaiting Democrats in Congress, or even to The Washington Post. Reporters for The Post began drafting the “Whistleblower Recanted” story within 24 hours of the conversation. Soon some newspapers were even running the story as a “whistleblower lied” tale.

We know of the contours of the November 9 interrogation only because Hopkins himself recorded parts of it on his cellphone. The irreconcilable differences between the audio recording and the press reports don’t seem to have attracted much attention.

Hopkins has now been relieved of his job without pay—for blowing the whistle on an election fraud scheme. Meanwhile Hopkins’ supervisors at the Eerie USPS station continue in their jobs without any apparent punishment or discipline, despite evidence that seems to indicate they helped rig an election by processing invalid late voters’ ballots. And Russ Strasser apparently faces no discipline for his obstruction of justice in the matter.

Turkish government monitors ‘candid camera’ type shows and arrests citizens who express anti-government views

Censorship of anti-government sentiments is growing worldwide.

For years, Americans have been accustomed to “man on the street” or “candid camera”-type interviews where a humorist asks random citizens about their opinions.

In Turkey, such shows are secretly monitored by government police. Citizens who express negative opinions about government are arrested afterward.

One Turk expressed the opinion that government officials are all vampires. He was arrested afterward.

“Turkish authorities regularly prosecute and harass citizens for any perceived criticism of [President] Erdogan. In 2018, a prominent Turkish singer, Zuhal Olcay, was sentenced to ten months in prison for rewriting the lyrics of a hit song during a concert” in a way that mocked Erdogan.

“Şenol Buran, the head cook at the Cumhuriyet office cafeteria, was arrested two years earlier for saying of Erdogan, “I would not serve that man a cup of tea.””
