Unfortunately, even at the time of Clarence Thomas Hearings many people watched it on MSM.
Have no idea why when C-span ran it without commercials and from beginning to end.
Some really don’t know that there were witnesses who would have disqualified Thomas immediately.
They were never heard – and it was then Sen. Joe Biden who rigged the Hearings and set the GOP
loose on a “witch hunt” of Prof. Anita Hill.
They did get away with it – and also that we no longer hear from those who would tell us about
the “qualifications” or the temper of the individual.
It was the HOSTAGE issue, imo – which was also rigged. People were tired of the nightly reports
on the hostages – Nightline was created for that purpose.
No one knew at the time that the Carter’s attempts at rescue where helicopters went down in the desert were likely arranged as Ollie North was in charge of the operation and Secord was second in command. Much later it was confirmed that the problem was that the equipment (sand screens) to keep sand out of the motors were not used. Basically, part of the October Surprise which went all the way.
Interesting re the actual vote for Reagan – 25%-27%. How many voting now? Big drop.
MSM makes it their business not to let the public know anything about all of that.
Re MSM – what has to be understood is that US lost its “free press” by the end of WWII.
But they did give them “I Love Lucy!”
See: CIA’s Mockingbird which was being drafted two years before the end of WWII.
The end of WWII was rigged – our government/Pentagon likely cooperated in saving Hitler
and allowing him and his henchmen to go – with money. This is why we have the rise of fascism.
See companion programs: CIA Paperclip/200,000 ex-Nazis used to found the CIA, funneled
into the FBI and other government agencies and to “hot spots” around the world. All to ensure
the rise of the Fourth Reich.
CIA/Gladio – intended to keep right wing government in place in nations over which the US had
influence and control at end of WWII – Japan, Germany, France, Italy - and I would add Greece
and UK. US even resurrected Mafia in Italy in order to ensure that the program would be carried
out efficiently in Italy.
To put it another way, that is how US got the McCarthy Era which purged liberals from government
and Hollywood and from wherever they could. By then, fascism had pretty much moved in on the
nation. Carl Bernstein (CIA&Media) didn’t even begin to report on CIA journalists it til 1976, I think.
We’ve not only had a CIA/corporate press since the earliest days after WWII, we’ve also been
voting on hack-able electronic computers for more than 50 years now!! Anything electronic can
be hacked over telephone lines, but understand now they can use satellites to do it.
But also it required the Democratic Party to PLAY DEAD for all of this time.
MSM – NOT a free press by any means – also benefitted from the LARGE computers which
began coming in about 1965 and which gave them immense new powers to call “winners” of
elections based in only 1% or even 0% of the vote. Actually, prior to that time they were only
permitted to report the winner of an election based on actual votes tallied.
I understand that in the earliest days there may have been some intimidation of network heads –
or with the CIA, perhaps blackmail of them for cooperation. But it then became voluntary as
more and more fell in line.
It took the CIA a bit longer to take over the White House and think that happened with GHWBush
and I doubt that they’ve lost control since then.
Phil Donahue had the #1 show on NBC – and they got rid of him because of his liberal positions
but especially because at a time when they were trying for more wars, he was very anti-war.
Oprah was decidedly less liberal after Donahue was gone.
I don’t know – if it’s the place where you were born maybe you always hold affection for it.
But I do think we have a responsibility no matter what land we stand on to those suffering.
To stop wars. To try to stop the manipulation of citizens by right wing propaganda which lies
but which does work.
Do you know how many times and how long the right wing was running campaigns to impeach
And there is NOTHING like the information and reality of Clarence Thomas who is a pervert –
as acknowledged even by his closest friends … in testimony at the hearings.
Thomas was used to ensure that the EEOC really did nothing about any kind of discrimination.
He acted to protect Rolstin Purina/Sen. … who name I can’t recall at moment.
It was a reward for that and that he would be another corporate shill on the SC – but they
seemed also highly interested in either actually putting a pervert on the court … or connecting
sexual perversion with a black man they were putting on the court. Maybe both?
Do you think that Our Founders could have presented the concept of 9 members
of our Supreme Court running the nation – overruling Congressional legislation
and its intent – moving to suppress freedom …
while encouraging the use of violence/guns in our societies?
Thanks for the response!
