Are Americans Finally Wising Up?

2021 July 15
by bc3b

We have frequently discussed that, according to Gallup’s Annual Media Trust Study, a majority of Americans haven’t trusted the media since 2005 – a fact the media refuses to report.

Now, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey conducted last week, a majority agree with Donald Trump that the US media is the enemy of the people.

Voters overwhelmingly believe “fake news” is a problem, and a majority agree with former President Donald Trump that the media have become “the enemy of the people.”

A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat agree that the media are “truly the enemy of the people,” including 34% who Strongly Agree. Thirty-six percent (36%) don’t agree, including 23% who Strongly Disagree.

In addition, according to Rasmussen, Americans seem to more aggressively question media reporting or “spin.”

As America’s cities experience a surge of criminal violence, less than a quarter of voters trust the media to report the facts about crime.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 24% of Likely U.S. Voters believe most of the news media report fairly and accurately about the problem of crime in America. Sixty percent (60%) say the media don’t report fairly and accurately about crime, and 15% are not sure.

How will the media react? The same way it has reacted to the annual Gallup results: totally ignore it. The media doesn’t care about credibility any more than Joseph Goebbels did. Like Goebbels, today’s media’s primary goal is controlling the public and silencing any opposition. There is a stupid demographic in the US that still believes the media and the media will continue to lie to control them. There was a time when some conservatives said, “Jake Tapper may be a liberal, but he’s an honest one.” That hasn’t been heard in 10 years.

    This piece shows that ALL of media needs to be put thru the anti-trust shredders, not just digital media. Its too concentrated, lacks local control, and is unaccountable. One example —

    Americans are waking up, which explains the headlong push to cement Socialist rule before Americans are FULLY awake.

    If Democrats cram through Federal rule of all elections, then they win…forever (or until CW2, whichever come first)

    When I opened the link and saw that it was Judy Woodruff and PBS, I was shocked they were reporting on the media. Then I saw it was a hit piece on Sinclair Broadcasting, which is conservative. Judy Woodruff and PBS don’t have a problem when CNN or NBC mixes news and opinion.

    The years haven’t been kind to Judy, but then she did cover David and Goliath.

    BC, 5,

    Your observations are spot on. The thing is Sinclair is not doing anything that any of the other news outlets are doing, that vid was just the easiest to find. The problem is that the cross ownership situation has the content creation centralized by a small minority; usually urban, insular, and distant from the issues of the local community. Fact the whole industry is flipped. Back in the 60’s local news was, well local. You got that the local pharmacy was broken into, local crop report, the local bank rates. National news? Turn on Cronkite.

    Now? The local news is watching a 5min segment of an LA car chase, the Fentynal disaster and maybe a high profile local murder that will be on the national newscast too. But generally the content is national content that has local flair because everyone is experiencing it in some fashion. The national news? Depending on which party has the WH its either a beatfest or a lovefest. Immigration, the same. The state of the economy is down to what the DJI numbers are that day. School boards are not covered, CRT not withstanding. Crime, pfft, unless it again is tied to either a race situation or sensationalized situation, not covered. Crime? One word — Chicago. And on it goes.

    Long ago (back when I was in college) there was a federal law that a corporation could only own 7 TV channels and 7 radio stations (no more than 1 TV channel and 1 radio station in a market).

    Part of it is financial. If local stations run network news, they have far fewer news teams (reporters, cameramen, etc.).

    Crypto, IMO, has ratcheted down. The 2 main coins BTC and ETH are below recent ranges.
    BTC was trading between 34K and 38K and is now in the 32Ks. ETH is below 2000.
    Stocks related to crypto are also falling, an example is COIN. CoinBase is a crypto brokerage, reputedly with more customers than Fidelity and RobinHood combined. It came on the market in the 300s was recently in the 240s and 250s but is now 220-ish. Volume on exchanges is at low levels.

    I’ve seen 3 theories of what’s going on.
    1) “I don’t know”. Plenty of people honestly admit they have no clue what to think.
    2) “Consolidating”. Others point to metrics which suggest the crypto market is consolidating or has consolidating and will rise again soon. This looks shaky based on falling prices.
    3) “Fall before recovery”. Gareth Soloway, a chart guy on YouTube, has publicly predicted for a couple months now that BTC will fall into the 20Ks before there is a recovery. He’s actually crypto friendly but that’s what his charts tell him.

    I know crypto is a minority interest on this blog 🙂 🙂
    Just was interested in PRPs thoughts and outlook.

    I am interested in crypto, just not as an asset class. I would like to see BTC unofficially replace SWIFT, but probably won’t happen. Were the Sauds to officially adopt BTC as the trade agent of oil I would stand up and take notice.

    On a related note, Binance was to be served papers in a suit when it came to light that Binance did no have an official office or a registered agent to which to serve the paper to. Classic indicators of a shade tree operation. Bottom line, take a closer look at the exchanges before transacting thru them.

    I agree, its why they did it. But as a consequence local issues of crime, industry, schools, problems are not brought to light. The community suffers for that lack of understanding.

    I feel like Binance is the Chinese version of coinbase, and the West has become increasingly hostile to having US dollars or UK dollars etc going into it. Maybe I’m wrong on that, but that seemed like what it was to me.

    2- Same as it has been, there is fraud left and right here, it’s worse most thought including myself (and it goes well beyond just Fulton) and “gop” members are as much co-conspirators as anyone else and nothing of any substance will be done about it. Color me unimpressed with Tucker finally mentioning things known in December (or earlier), particularly the state farm arena video.

    5- Judy Woodruff … hahahahahaha like watching anything narrated by Christiane Amanpour, you know it’s just going to be dripping with her personal agenda. Not surprising the both spent plenty of time at CNN together.

    BTW watched the AZ hearing today… I appreciate all these people attempting something but they all seem too soft-spoken to get anywhere, we’ll see I guess, lots of interesting things (in a horrible security sense) on the technical side were brought up though.

    The Pentagon says several of the suspects in the July 7 assassination of Haiti President Jovenel Moïse had received U.S. military training. The men who had the training were Colombian.

    “A review of our training databases indicates that a small number of the Colombian individuals detained as part of this investigation had participated in past U.S. military training and education programs, while serving as active members of the Colombian Military Forces,” Lt. Col. Ken Hoffman, a Pentagon spokesman, told The Washington Post.

    Not actually ‘that’ unusual but you know along with the guy who lived in Miami was a former DEA assett, and 4 other US companies involved how can I not wonder.

    It’s just coincidence of course and there was no US agency or US interest\involvement in what occurred says our rulers. I mean maaaaybe not, but it if not who ever did sure picked some people to be involved that if nabbed would point in that direction. 😉

    btw Lyn Alden has done some BTC retrospective analysis (Monday morning WB type thing) and she has noted that the greyscale premium switching to a discount could have been one of the main things that played into its crash. I think she may be right but I also think the aggressive rise in interest rates (10 year rate surge in February) that was smashing tech in the early year had a role as well.

    PRP: “Lyn Alden has done some BTC retrospective analysis (Monday morning WB type thing) and she has noted that the greyscale premium switching …”

    Yes, she has explained pretty clearly how that led to the crash, though she says GreyScale coins will NOT be dumped on the market as some fear. It’s quite a coincidence that when crypto was starting to shake the pillars of stability for fiat that suddenly crypto came under a devastating attack LOL.
    But to me, a more interesting question is why it chopped sideways for months afterwards and why (IMO) it is now trending noticeably downward to a lower support level.

    24 – He was publicly resisting the vax comes to mind, but I doubt that’s what was actually at play, better bet would his price was too high to allow certain things people wanted to continue. It’s odd he was tangentially supported by the State dept even though he’d over stayed his office by 6mo at time of assinination. Who knows, other than we very very rarely get the real story till years after the fact (if then).

    For the left violence is a scale.
    For the right violence is a switch.

    “The most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of ‘Men who wanted to be left Alone’. They try, so very hard to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know the moment they fight back, the lives as they have lived them, are over. The moment the ‘Men who wanted to be left Alone’ are forced to fight back, it is a small form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these ‘Men who wanted to be left Alone’, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror. TRUE TERROR will arrive at the Left’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy, but it will fall upon deaf ears.”

    in addition “Days ago, a historic hydroelectric plant near Albany, New York, decided to begin cryptomining than selling its power to the grid because it could make more money. ”
    Hey why supply the grid when we can make more money not supplying the grid… Waiting for the press conference some time in the near future “Sorry you guys don’t have heat or ac.. etc but max profit come first”.


    Is increasing generation capacity in this master plan anywhere,while we’re at is or is that crazy an idea – if it actually is better get fucking started so that some times in 2045 it can actually be brought online.

    I can see other scams of tax\rate payers coming where say usage is normally around 75-80% capacity, but they start run at 90% sending the extra to their own crypto farms, but the rate-payers have to cover the cost of the added overhead of maintenance and wear\tear caused by running at say 90%.

    I wonder if COVID will heat up again to distract from emerging evidence of the stolen election?
    A post from the blog JustOneMinute (the sequel)

    Dr. Peter McCollough–America’s most published academic cardiologist, who published a home treatment protocol for Covid back in August (IIRC) has some interesting information to share on the jab: … -americans

    He’s right about this. (Bolding mine) :

    “Now I can’t come out and say all this on national TV today or at any time,” he continued. “But, what we had learned over time is that we could no longer communicate with government agencies. We actually couldn’t even communicate with our propagandized colleagues in major medical centers, all of which appear to be under a spell, almost as if they are hypnotized right now.”

    He did not hold back in his criticism of his colleagues in the medical community.

    “And doctors, good doctors, are doing unthinkable things, like injecting biologically active messenger RNA that produces this pathological spike protein into pregnant women. I think when the doctors wake up from their trance they’re going to be shocked to think what they’ve done to people.”

    drdog and gnqanq (and the rest of ya’ll)

    another (large) bit of anecdotal evidence that “the switch is about to be flipped

    I am not going to name the politician involved…except to say he is pretty much THE highest ranking politician in the county I live in. Tough to obscure the exact facts, since I don’t want to get him in trouble, but I’ll try.

    I’m on the board of directors for our HOA, and I’ve mentioned the incidents that not only didn’t get a Sheriff’s response, but in one case the Deputy on the line told the homeowner to “treat someone threatening you over shooting their dog the way you would treat the dog threatening you“. (when the homeowner asked the Deputy if he was saying to shoot the person threatening him, the Deputy refused to confirm that)

    Soooo…the other day one of my fellow board members got on the phone with this very high-ranking politician from our county, and related that incident, and others. The response was even more direct than the Deputy’s: “I guess you’re going to have to start taking the law into your own hands“. My fellow board member said he nearly dropped the phone…and he wished he had been recording the call.

    Rural counties, even those in the PRK (like mine) are just about ready to “flip the switch”.
