Debate content and guests aside, compare and contrast the journalistic styles of the host in the above video with the one here below:

I can see how Tulsi Gabbard will be pushed out the way of McKinney: Wolf Blitzer, never hearing her, playing gotcha-journalism, time and again attempting to bait her to say the 'wrong thing':

Fake news, otherwise also known as propaganda, is the domain of government.  American governments are fine-tuned experts at it, with 'war' always being the end game.

The okeydoke that Americans were supposed to get:

I came across this link below that claims an "exclusive interview with a Pentagon insider". The 'insider' angle being true or false aside, the Q & A's in the interview make for an interesting read.  Actually, methinks many of the insider's answers indicate an intimate familiarity with the political forces and mechanisms that are currently in play - but, of course, do read on and find out for yourselves:

This thread about Fake News and its assortment of names and scandals and war ops can go on ad infinitum - really it can: such is the astonishing depth of the mass deception that we've all been tricked into living under.  Since, well, forever, we've been intentionally duped by politicians, intelligence agencies and the MSM.  Name a topic, name any theme and there you'll find at least one conspiracy by the Establishment and its cronies to blindside the public.  But every now and then, the liars themselves trip up involuntarily.  Take a look at this, as one small example.

Rudy, maybe I didn't make my point clear enough but I'll give it another try:  regardless of whether the information was correct or not, in the past we collectively embraced the information of the times, which in return created a collective mental binding: a shared 'reality'.  Today there is no collective embrace of anything: our collective knowledge is fragmented and therefore so is our society.

I haven't mentioned the White Helmets, who in fact were instrumental in setting up Trump's surprise attack on the Syrian airbase.  But, why use words when we can go to their film sets and watch them in full-on production mode.  I would caption this one below with: 'Look ma, out of the rubble with clean hands!'

And here the caption begs: 'Look ma, out of the rubble with dolly and my hair all shiny!'

And speaking of staged events, here's one that I suspect is performed by some kind of Turkish White Helmets copycat outfit:

Ah, fake news!  Where would the world be without it?

Trump's anti PC-speak certainly was a fresh breath of air in our stifled political discourse.  And yes, next to the war criminal Hillary, he indeed looked like a better pick, despite his uncouth and gruesome egomaniacal tendencies.  But only 4 months in and he's following Clinton's ziocon mideast agenda, to the letter.  This is most concerning.

I didn't vote in the last election because I saw both candidates as evil, with Trump being the lesser evil, yet still evil.  I just can't bring myself to vote for evil, regardless of the size of the evil (little devils become demons when they grow up).  I can't see me ever voting again, unless a candidate publicly declares that they are prepared to re-open the 9/11 investigations.  This means that this candidate is prepared to take on the mossad and target neocons and neolibs with impeachments.  No such honest braveling has been born yet, I fear.

There's a lot more to Kushner than meets the eye.  The journalist A.B. Stoddard penned this up on Kushner's White House status yesterday:

Rex Tillerson, Jared Kushner's Understudy:

More and more, looks to me like Kushner's a mossad Trojan.  I mean I can't imagine aipacers (who are mossad agents and assets) - I can't imagine them not utilizing, to the fullest and beyond, Kushner's tribal credentials and his intimate proximity to president Trump.

Impossible and inconceivable that they would not take full advantage of this.

It's not nostalgia or romanticism.  To my mind it's very simple, Rudy: no common knowledge means no common sense.

(Check the date of the article pictured above)

The curious thing about this old Mail Online article is that it was deleted a few days after it was published.  Deleted years ago.  But lucky for us, GlobalResearch investigated this matter and shed journalistic light, publishing its report a couple of days ago, including access to the deleted article, here.

Hello Rudy.  No, no censorship conspiracy here, just a silly little glitch that swallowed up your comment - which I've reinstated now.

Thank you for your comments.  I will respond in a few hours when I have the time.

Fake news is fragmentation of knowledge.  Look at any golden age of any culture throughout history and you will see there a cultural glue: a cohesion of knowledge among the collective and an ability to appreciate and utilize newly discovered facts, regardless of personal world view.  Cohesion of knowledge means that everyone pretty much is on the same 'reality' page because 'facts' have been accepted as arbiters of 'reality'.  When they debated and hotly argued in the golden ages, they did so under the same reality-umbrella.  We do not presently live in such a progressive atmosphere.  In fact we live under the opposite conditions where there is no such thing as 'common knowledge'. Now, everyone seems to have their own version of the facts and it's this version, this interpretation of fact that has now become the arbiter of a zillion criss-crossing realities.  It's so dire that today we even have a sanguine resurgence of the Flat Earth Society.  This is the 21st century and a Flat Earth ideology is burgeoning.  Who would have thunk it?!  Flat Earth members are increasing as can be noted by their presence on social media.  And they are so goddamn aggressive, defensive and offensive - weirdly, just like them crazy from too-much-denial zionists.  It's total irrational insanity out there, folks!  Clearly, our current collective intellect is regressing before our very own eyes, regardless of the mindblowing and hyper advances of our technology.  It's like our collective intellectual progress is fast veering away from our technological progress - like two parallel lines moving both forward and away from each other at the same time.  Where's it all leading to?  Human intellect and human technology have separate destinies?  I know, I'm entering a forest of abstract abstracts here.  You'll forgive me but I always end up in the realm of opaque science fiction whenever I contemplate the future of mankind.
