Media

Are we being manipulated by the media?

We’re being presented with images designed to arouse an emotional response so we will accept or even clamour for the agenda the corporations are promoting.  It’s called “marketing.”

Here are three examples of these images.

I’ll start with the current one:

The widely shared photo of the little girl crying as a U.S. Border Patrol agent patted down her mother became a symbol of the families pulled apart by the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border, even landing on the new cover of Time magazine.

The whole thing is a lie.

Time Weldome to America

The girl’s father told The Washington Post on Thursday night that his child and her mother were not separated, and a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman confirmed that the family was not separated while in the agency’s custody.

That cover was designed for us to think Trump is heartless.  Oh, that mean nasty Trump, enforcing a policy the Obama administration brought in.


Syrian boy drowned because his father wanted new teeth

“While acknowledging that the boy’s death was a tragedy, he said: “That boy and his family had lived in Turkey for three years. The money for that boy’s father to pay the people smugglers was sent from Canada.” He added, “The father sent them on that boat so the father could get dental treatment. They were in no fear, they were in no persecution and they were in no danger in Turkey.”

They weren’t refugees.  Those in favour of mass immigration have used this heart rending image to great effect.  Anyone who wants the flood of migrants controlled or stopped will be seen as heartless.


We’ve all seen that photo of a polar bear stranded on the iceberg … Al Gore’s poster image for “climate change.”

They want children cuddling their teddy bears to cry for their parents do something about “climate change.”

polarbrs

There was just one problem: the photograph was taken not of polar bears “stranded” on ice – far from it.  Rather, the bears were wandering around their natural environment as they do every day.

Let’s hear it from the photographer,

The student who took the photograph, however, gives her account: ‘They were on the ice when we found them and on the ice when we left. They were healthy, fat and seemed comfortable on their iceberg.’ Amanda Byrd, an Australian graduate student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), says she took the picture around three years ago – in the summer. The photograph was not ‘taken by environmentalists’ but as part of a field trip with the university.

Furthermore, the photographer wasn’t even asked permission:

Byrd is clearly a little miffed that ‘the image you have seen around the world was distributed without my consent, and [with] the wrong byline’.

Be careful with mass-produced news items containing emotive images designed to grip people.  It may not be what it seems.

“Chicken Little” and the news from 1922 OR it pays to dig deeper

Chicken littleOriginally I posted this and I would like to thank one of my readers for showing me the last two lines were an inaccuracy.  As a result I dug deeper and found a copy of the original article.

It really does pay to dig as deeply as possible and try to find the original source so as not to be caught out by fake news.


Judging by the news since New Year, 2018 will be full of claims of “record weather events” caused by “global warming.”  Is it true, or is it an agenda?  

Here’s a news report from 1922:

“The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in
some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report
to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate, at Bergen, Norway

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north
as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones,
the report continued, while at many points well-known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north are being encountered.


The above part is true.  You can read the entire article by clicking on the Anchorage Daily Times.

The part in red had been added to it, which I retract.

Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.”

The report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post – 96 years ago.

This must have been caused by the Model T Ford’s emissions.

And now for that facts …

Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions

Why is fake news always bad?  Here’s the good news:

Despite What You’ve Heard, Global Warming Isn’t Making Weather More Extreme.


Extreme Climate Change: The 1933-1938 Period Was One of Very Severe Weather Events, Including Global Heat Waves.

Taxpayer funded climate-doomsday scientists and the mainstream media ambulance chasers perpetuate the myth that today’s severe weather events are a result of human-CO2 caused extreme climate change – actually, today’s bad weather seems rather mild to similar events decades before large human CO2 emissions.


My advice, turn your TV off and don’t be myth-taken.  I wish you all the best for the New Year.  Here’s some wisdom from the Bible:

 “As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.” Genesis 8:22 (NIV)

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ – Colossians 2:8.

Freedom, 2018

Australia debates same-sex marriage, but was NZ given a say?

This time Australia is being pressured to change the marriage law.  They’ll be told that New Zealand did it, so why shouldn’t they?  The media are making it sound like there was a public mandate for same-sex marriage in 2013, but that’s simply not true.  New Zealanders weren’t asked.  We weren’t given a referendum.  We were silenced. 

The one and only time we got a voice was in a TV3 news poll.  This was the response.  There were nearly 17,000 respondents with 78% against.  The media were shocked at the strength of public opinion against and there was a media blackout over our opinion.

SHOCK – TV3 Campbell Live ‘Marriage-Equality bill’ poll

Here’s a cartoon from 2013 showing who had the say in NZ – politicians.

Marriage

At least Australians are being asked.  Why weren’t New Zealanders given the right to vote on this?

And before you label me a “hater” for pointing out the facts – I don’t hate homosexuals.  What I do hate is living in a society where people are shouted down and silenced, slurred for having a different opinion and not given a say in what their government does!  It’s called injustice.

These are the questions I hope Australians will ask themselves;  Who is driving this agenda?  Should government legislate morality?  What societal benefits are there in same-sex marriage?  Why are people who disagree being labelled “homophobes” and “bigots?”


Australians are voting on same-sex marriage — and it’s starting to get ugly


 

Syria and the Genie in the bottle

After the election of Trump, the priority of the United States concerning Assad was initially not to force him out of power, but this policy quickly reversed in the wake of the 2017 Khan Shaykhun chemical attack

So we’re expected to believe that Bashar al-Assad gassed his own people.  But why would he?  It would make him even more of a pariah.  He chose medicine as a profession.  Did you know he was a doctor before being recalled to Syria after his brother died?

It just doesn’t make sense.

What if a group of war profiteers blamed Assad for this so they could attack the Syrian air force – which is guarding the Golan Heights where oil was discovered in 2015?

Trump’s decision to order the airstrike was influenced by his daughter Ivanka, who is employed as an official advisor to her father in the White House.  She said on Twitter she was “heartbroken and outraged by the images coming out of Syria following the atrocious chemical attack.”

‘Outraged’ Ivanka influenced Donald Trump’s decision to strike Syria, Eric Trump says.

No doubt that is true, but who is manipulating or influencing Ivanka and her husband  Jared Kushner behind the scenes?  Jared Kushner is a senior adviser to Donald Trump.

Syria’s allies are Iran and Russia.  Who would benefit from Syria being taken down?

Netanyahu

Let’s take Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  In February, Netanyahu asked Trump to recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

The Golan Heights is a contested area.  The western two-thirds of the Golan Heights are occupied and administrated by Israel, whereas the eastern third is controlled by Syria, with the UNDOF – the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force maintaining a buffer zone in between.

How well does Netanyahu know the Kushners?  Netanyahu has long been a friend of the Kushners, and particularly Jared’s dad, Charles Kushner, a major donor to pro-Israel and Jewish causes. One time, – not specified when – Jared gave up his bed and moved to the basement so Netanyahu could spend the night at their home in Livingston, New Jersey.

Genie Oil

Genie Energy holds the drilling rights to the oil under the Golan Heights.

Rupert Murdoch, another influence on Kushner, is on the advisory board of Genie Energy – along with former CIA Director Dick Cheney, James Woolsey, and Lord Jacob Rothschild.

One of the ways Syria keeps control of the Golan Heights is with the Syrian Airforce.  Clearly, Rupert Murdoch and that crew would like to see Syria lose control of that area to Israel – and one of the ways to do that is to take out their planes.

Rupert Murdoch

How well does media mogul Rupert Murdoch know Jared Kushner?  Rupert Murdoch was his mentor.  Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were introduced to each other by Rupert Murdoch’s (now) ex-wife.

So there is one degree of separation between all these players.  Join the dots.

I blogged about Genie Oil here in 2015:  Huge Oil Discovery in Israel.

Back then, I was thinking of the possible ramifications for Israel.  I wasn’t thinking so much of Syria.  What’s this war in Syria all about, and can we trust the media?

Other influences

Did you know that Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal is a big shareholder in Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News?  Here they are at NewsCorp headquarters in New York.

Prince-Alwaleed-with-Mr.-Murdoch-Feb-2015-800x579

Since 2011 Saudi Arabia has made repeated calls for Syria’s Assad to be removed from power.  Assad is an ally of Iran, their enemy.

Here’s a quick news clip of prince Alwaleed admitting in his own words to Saudi Arabia funding of Isis and other terrorist groups in Syria in 2012.  How many Syrians have been killed because of that?

Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Saudi Arabia’s Funding of Rebels in Syria Led to rise of ISIS

I’ve joined some dots.  Can we believe the media allegations about Assad and the Syrian chemical attacks?

What Egypt thought of Obama

Here’s a bit of (black) humour. It’s Obama prattling on about “climate change being their biggest national security threat.”  Seriously?  The weather?  It’s just as well he’s going.  I hope the US can bounce back from him.

Here’s what the media in Egypt thought.  It’s refreshing after the sanitised, air-brushed version of president Obama that we’re presented with in the news.

Here are some of the comments:

“Is he insane?”

“He’s on drugs?”

“What do you expect from an affirmative action president?  He never served in the military, nor worked a day in his life.”

“Did you see that video of him working out?  My daughter has bigger biceps than him!”

“America is getting weaker by the day under this president.”

“Look what he did in Libya.  It’s all part of his plan.

“Your enemies no longer fear you. And your allies no longer trust you!”

NZ, indoctri- nation

dont-thinkWhat NZ was not being told

In my last blog post, I wondered why the media hadn’t reported on the findings of the NIPCC scientists who found the evidence no longer supports man made global warming.  

I wondered why did the media did not tell us that the boat stuck in the Antarctic ice in the summer was full of climate scientists studying global warming!

NZ hasn’t been told about Australia pulling out of the carbon tax, after citing it as UN interferance.   Australia delivered a blunt message to UN alarmists: No more “socialism masquerading as environmentalism.”
http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/16940-australia-rejects-un-socialism-masquerading-as-environmentalism

This was “news” for NZ

No.  We haven’t been told ANY of that.  On the contrary, this is what we have been served up in the last 48 hours as “news”;

On the radio; “Global warming is now a fact”, and “how it should be an election issue”.

On TV1; a “news” article dealing with “rising sea levels” because of “global warming” and NZ’s response to it.

On TV3;  “Marshall Islands won’t give up war on climate change”, about a Pacific Island going underwater because of “global warming”.  This is how it was reported hyped up; “As the world discusses climate change, it’s now clear it’s an impending catastrophe …”
http://www.3news.co.nz/Marshall-Islands-wont-give-up-war-on-climate-change/tabid/817/articleID/338163/Default.aspx

Now for the truth.

The Marshall Islands are the victim of US mining.  The Marshall Island atolls are coral deposits on the crater rims of submerged volcanoes.  The US is mining the coral reefs.  There was a king tide.  Go figure. Coral Ecologist Dean Jacobson, the man that reported this, was arrested, booted off the island, and is now being arraigned for “criminal trespass”.

I’ve asked our media why they are not reporting the facts, but haven’t got an answer yet.  Should I hold my breath in anticipation of the answer?

Not when six media giants now control 90% of what we read, watch, or listen to.  It’s obvious that the NZ media are not independent of the media giants.

The NZ people are being treated like sheep with the liberal media dogs barking and snapping at our heels.  Are we to be mustered and fleeced by the UN and our own government?
