The Case for declaring the Main Stream Media as Domestic Terrorists. Over the top?

Media Dometic Terrorists

The United States Media complex functions as a domestic terrorist threat against the American people. Too over-the-top rhetoric? Let us examine further.

The media rehabbed Jamal Khashoggi’s bio following his horrible death pushing only the journalist angle and omitting his deep ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Saudi Intel, and Qatar. When U.S.Special Forces killed Islamic State leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi the media labeled him as an Austere theological scholar and “Revered Military Leader.”

Now, this – Multiple media outlets chose to eulogize the death of the designated terrorist Qasem Soleimani who was responsible for death and mayhem over a decade, including American loss of life and actively plotting further attacks on Americans and ally interests this way. Choosing words like; icon, poet, dapper beard hero, brave, charismatic, beloved,warrior-philosopher, and revered.

CNN – “Qasem Soleimani, who was killed by a US airstrike ordered by President Donald Trump at Baghdad International Airport on Friday, was hailed as a hero in Iran – brave, charismatic and beloved by the troops. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, once called him a “living martyr of the revolution.” But the United States viewed Iran’s top general as a ruthless killer.”

The New York Times – “But in Iran, many saw him as a larger-than-life hero, particularly within security circles. Anecdotes about his asceticism and quiet charisma joined to create an image of a warrior-philosopher who became the backbone of a nation’s defense against a host of enemies.”

Farnaz Fassihi. – NYT reporter tweeted a video of Soleimani reciting poetry. Yes, you read that correctly. After the Commander and Chief ordered United States Military to target and deliver airstrikes to kill a man known as a “Terrorist Mastermind,” This “journalist” felt showing him read poetry was in order.

Business Insider – compared Soleimani to Gen. George Patton or the Duke of Wellington.

CNN’s Zakaria – compared Soleimani to French Resistance Leader President Charles de Gaulle. See the video here:

The Washington Post – described Soleimani as “a most revered leader,” an “icon,” with a headline reading, “Iran’s popular Gen. Soleimani became an icon by targeting the US.”

The New Yorker  – “Suleimani, a flamboyant former construction worker and bodybuilder with snowy white hair, a dapper beard, and arching salt-and-pepper eyebrows …”

 CNN’s “New Day,” – CNN National Security Analyst Samantha Vinograd warned that in the wake of the killing of Qasem Soleimani, all Americans are “prime targets for Iranian retaliation” Remember when media told us the same after Bin Laden was killed or Gaddafi? Right … neither does RFSO. This is fear-mongering and framing for political agenda. See here in the video below:

RFSO no longer calls this bias. This is directed propaganda, universally applied across media platforms, to achieve indoctrination of the masses. How is this not a threat to the Republic?

Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52):

expanded the definition of terrorism to cover “domestic,” as opposed to international, terrorism. A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act “dangerous to human life” that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state of the United States if the act appears to be intended to: (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping.  Additionally, the acts have to occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, and if they do not, they may be regarded as international terrorism.

It is accurate to state the Main Stream Media has not functionally set off a bomb creating massive casualties. Nor have they physically murdered or kidnapped an individual. But RFSO would like to drill down on the concept of coercion of a civilian population and influence to affect the conduct of Government.  In an odd twist, the ACLU (The American Civil Liberties Union) made our case while analyzing The Patriot Act. 

While describing circumstances of protesting as opposed to a policy, the ACLU stated:

“Americans participated in civil disobedience on a military installation where the United States government has been engaging in regular military exercises, which these protesters oppose. The protesters illegally entered the military base and tried to obstruct the bombing exercises. This conduct would fall within the definition of domestic terrorism because the protesters broke federal law by unlawfully entering the airbase, and their acts were for the purpose of influencing government policy by intimidation or coercion.

RFSO asks how many times over the last three years have we witnessed leftist “The Resistance” trespass, storm and occupy public buildings impeding function and safety, block traffic, delay first responders, engage in unsafe behaviors, (setting fires, flipping vehicles, breaking storefronts, physical assaults and destroy property). Are those protesters parroting media talking points?  Does the Main Stream Media align with the leftists “Resistance?” 

What is the breakdown of News contributors who worked in the previous administration and boldly declare in their Twitter feeds, “Viva La Resistance!” Americans have watched the Main Streal Media gaslight and foment the rage as they exhibit Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), as full-fledged, agent provocateurs. Opposition elected officials and Party Leaders mimic the media, and the media frame the latter’s perspectives and agendas for public indoctrination. They both engage in acute omissions, deceptive edits, and complete falsehoods. How is this not a collusion to be coercive and designed to influence outcomes?

Psst … they are not even trying to hide the motive or intent any longer.

Kimberly Strassel – of the Wall Street Journal states:

“That’s changed in the age of Trump. The press has embraced its bias, joined “The Resistance,” and declared its allegiance to one side of a partisan war. It now openly declares those who offer any fair defense of this administration as Trump “enablers.” It writes off those who question the FBI or Department of Justice actions in 2016 as “conspiracy” theorists. It acts as willing scribes for Democrats and former Obama officials; peddles evidence-free accusations; sources stories from people with clear political axes to grind, and closes its eyes to clear evidence of government abuse.”

Glenn Greenwald of the Intercept – is a journalist who has been sounding the alarm for three years here and here. See a video presentation of this:

American media consumers have had their chain choked and inundated with the indoctrination of falsehoods. Here is just a short but steady drumbeat of Media attacks on Trump:

  • Trump is a Russian Spy/Traitor.
  • Trump and Campaign colluded with Russia to interfere with U.S. Elections.
  • Trump will get us into a nuclear war with North Korea
  • Trump will get us into war with Russia
  • The Mueller report will prove Trump is a Russian spy and colluded with Russia
  • The Steel Dossier was verified.
  • Media lied that Trump said Nazis and White Supremacists are fine people
  • Trump will get ten of thousands slaughtered if we drawdown in Syria.
  • Trump banned all Muslims
  • Trump called all Mexicans rapists.
  • Trump said all immigrants are animals
  • Each IG report to date exonerated the FBI and the Justice Department of any Trump investigation wrongdoings.
  • Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers were credible and must be believed.
  • Covington Catholic High School episode.
  • Tax cuts did not help the middle class nor the lower social-economic class and were a give away only to the wealthy.
  • Trump’s policies will cause a recession.
  • Trump asked Ukraine to dig up dirt on Biden to interfere in the 2020 election.

This list could go on for pages.

How do these falsehoods, pimped by the media and parroted by the left or Vice a Versa, not influence civilian populations who then vote for the government we are all subject to? Consider that a 2019  analysis of News Coverage revealed that over 90% of Trump coverage remains negative.

A few important questions every American should ask:

  • Does the media megaphone declaration that Trump is racist, mentally unhinged and incompetent, and a dictator compare to Hitler fuel TDS?
  • Does the media report a Trump statement or action, and offer alternative interpretations on their discussion panels, or do they dictate the only meaning, intent, and how the viewer should feel about said statement and action?
  • Does the 24/7 News bubble affect lawmakers’ abilities to protect and serve Americans at home and abroad?
  • Do you think the Mueller Investigation/Media narrative being held over Trump’s head like the sword of Damocles might have impacted the 2018 Mid Term election turn out and results?
  • Do you think the media lies about kids in cages and spin on administration immigration border polices might have interfered with fixing these issues?
  • Did this false information block any legislation compromise to address “Dreamers,” Border security, and legal immigration reforms?
  • Do you think the media full-frontal attack on President Trump when he met with Putin or Kim Jong Un for a summit might have negatively impacted positive outcomes in negotiations on foreign policy initiatives in North Korea, Syria (ISIS), and Iran?
  • Do you think possibly, that each time Trump has been on Foreign soil for significant meetings and American Media mocked, degraded, and framed his efforts as incompetence, this might have played into China, Russia, and the EU hands when negotiating on trade deals?
  • Do you think media perpetuating the Russia hoax, the Grifter hoax, the tax returns hoax, the Charlottesville hoax, the kids in cages hoax, and now the Ukraine hoax could be the causation of what allowed for the impeachment sham?

Again, the questions could go on for pages.

Orwell famously said:

“Useful lies were preferred to harmful truths, and history had stopped in 1936, leaving only propaganda going forward.”

History is full of authoritarian regimes who used the press to manipulate and influence public opinion to control outcomes. Hitler and Goebbels transformed the use of propaganda to control public opinion to a high art form. During the Ukraine famine, Stalin suborned Walter Duranty, a reporter for the New York Times, who wrote, “There is no actual starvation, but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition.” Mussolini installed the High Commission for the press using propaganda and censorship. The Kremlin has its “Pravda,” and China has its “The People’s Daily.”

The way media chooses to highlight or ignore a story, distort, create, or omit facts have led to tragic circumstances. The role of media in the Rwandan genocide tracked eerily similar to Nazi Germany. Internally, media encouraged people to accept a certain level of violence at first, then normalize participation as it escalated, and encouraged the dehumanization of certain individuals.

External international media chose to either not cover or dishonestly report the atrocities allowing the world to remain in plausible denial until it was too late to make a difference. Again, History is full of these examples. Presently, Venezuelans are starving and suffering after decades of a government’s successful propaganda machine. Do we see dehumanization and ostracizing of a certain ideological spectrum in America today? Does the media cover Trump supporters being viciously threatened and attacked? Each sourced see here.

Propaganda is not a new invention. But RFSO’s opinion is that the increasingly sophisticated methods and multiple platforms, afforded by the birth of the Internet and Cable News, has expanded reach and impact on populations’ perspectives. Today, in America, more than 90% of all media outlets are owned by just six companies (see inset chart). For a deeper dive, see here. Here is an example of uniformity of the narrative in action in this funny but serious montage:

Today, the IG FISA report is public. We now know that Crossfire hurricane counterintelligence operation was based on falsehoods. This operation morphed into the Steel Dossier / FISA warrant to spy on Trump associates and continued through President Trump’s transition period. Then it all rolled into a Comey triggered Mueller’s Investigation, again based on a perpetrated hoax. RFSO believes Trump’s approval ratings, administration’s effectiveness to legislate policy initiatives, and the 2018 Midterms were negatively impacted by the propaganda the media engaged in on all the above issues. Here is another media montage of the Main Stream Media spinning conspiracy propaganda:

RFSO stance is that the media, with intent and malice, engages in a level of propaganda designed to subvert the Constitutional Republic and its institutions by manipulating reality for their viewing audience. This includes Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google social media platforms. Their agenda is aligned with the Democrat party and leftist elitists who seek to fundamentally change our Republic to a Marxist / socialist paradigm, complete with a new Constitution and Bill Of Rights. RFSO does not exclude some Republicans from the term leftist.

To achieve this goal, capitalism must be deemed a failure. Hence reports on Trump’s economy and domestic policies are negative and out and out lies or not even covered. Reports on Border Security and Immigration are skewed to support increased illegal populations inside the United States, to sow division, and shift the demographics which will vote Democrat.

After eight years of media propaganda on Obamacare, the media refuses to cover the Trump policy changes on healthcare or outcomes accurately and continues to mislead the public on the issue intentionally. This pattern plays out across issues of gun control, race, abortion, taxes, etc. Yes, the media has become the enemy of the people, and just like an act of domestic terrorism, it can permanently alter our liberty, our vote, and future generations’ freedoms.

Still not convinced?

Consider that Trump and those who voted for Trump have claimed that a soft coup has been underway to delegitimize his presidency and invalidate Americans’ votes. The media is covering for the Deepstate elements perpetrating the coup. Now, factor in that in April 2018, the GOP lead House Intelligence Committee (Nunes) released a 234-page report after interviewing under oath over 90 witnesses. It concluded that intelligence agencies used human assets to infiltrate and spy on the Trump campaign, withheld exculpatory evidence on the Carter Page FISA, withheld exculpatory on evidence General Flynn, Obama administration Unmasked American citizens through NSA, series of FBI abuses, and no evidence of collusion between Trump, his family, or campaign staff with Russia. Did Mueller or The FISA Court heed those findings then? The FISA IG report just confirmed them. See here.

But how did the media universally play it? See this video report that shows it in action:

How will Americans choose to play it? Indoctrinated sheep … like Stalin put it, “useful idiots” for the slaughter!

Perhaps 10 years ago they would be called domestic terrorist … today it seems that people can get away with it.

There is a fine line between freedom of speech and sedition, and, almost the entirety of modern media has long since crossed that line!

A nation that is not able, or not willing to prosecute those who mean it harm will soon cease to be a nation in any meaningful way.

The failure to find fault with Walter Cronkite’s misinformation about Vietnam and the failure to hang traitor Jane Fonda, has led us down this path.

All is fair in love and war. It is time to hang lying, so called journalists. They are the biggest problem in our nation right now. If we are to continue as the once strong nation we claimed to be, we must live in truth, not made up lies by those financed by the likes of Soros.

Selfishness and hatred has driven the d rats and their MSM puppets over the cliff like a heard of buffalo descending in to a pit of despair. In the pit there is no common sense, decency, or intelligence just blind obedience to those that drove them over the cliff.

Over the years Americans have been dumbed down by the news media. More than half of Americans are this way and really can’t think clearly enough to see through their own ignorance. The problem is not getting better as time passes, it is getting worse. I am not optimistic for our future. What bothers me the most is that I am powerless to stop it. The whacko who said your vote is important and counts was just as evil as the media today. Our Congress is just as bad as our population. More than half of them are border line… Read more »

Over the last two decades, a constant refrain that I hear from people in general when I make a statement that contradicts the ongoing narratives at the time is; “Don’t you watch the NEWS?!” “It’s not that my liberal friends are ignorant, it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” –RONALD REAGAN

A big part of the problem is the ignorance of the American people. Nobody with a near normal IQ and 9th-grade education would believe what these media put out…BUT THEY DO!!! Talk to any fervent left winger, and you have to wonder if that person missed schooling altogether. Yet many of them attend or attended college!

The same wonderful comments could be applied to Osama bin Laden (a hero), but he was gotten on Obama’s watch, so he was labeled appropriately a villain. Qasem Soleimani was gotten by Trump Republican Pres, so now Qasem Soleimani is a hero to the left and media.

The Fourth Estate is the Fifth Column. Truer words were never written or spoken (by L.C.Vincent) and every day, the Fourth Estate proves they are nothing more than the media arm of the Democrat party, whose “job” (as they see it) is used to promote a PC culture while providing cover for Democrat lies, deceptions and falsehood; while at the same time skewing and spinning the news to affect and twist the outcome of elections. Social Media continues this manipulation by hiding and omitting stories that do not fit the Liberal-Progressive PC lock-step thought pattern, ultimately affecting the voters and… Read more »

[…] So what exactly is happening here and what do we call it? In present-day America, it is impossible to separate the Democrat Party talking points with the Main Stream Media’s headlines.
