People who know how the news is made resist conspiratorial thinking

Conspiracy theories, like the world being flat or the Moon landings faked, have proven notoriously difficult to stomp out. Add a partisan twist to the issue, and the challenge becomes even harder. Even near the end of his second term, barely a quarter of Republicans were willing to state that President Obama was born in the US.

If we’re seeking to have an informed electorate, then this poses a bit of a problem. But a recent study suggests a very simple solution helps limit the appeal of conspiracy theories: news media literacy. This isn’t knowledge of the news, per se, but knowledge of the companies and processes that help create the news. While the study doesn’t identify how the two are connected, its authors suggest that an understanding of the media landscape helps foster a healthy skepticism.

FK – Well gee I have a ‘journalism degree’ and I’ve worked as a mainstream newswhore so I guess I can tell what ‘news literacy’ is or not huh?

I can tell you this column is blatant propaganda lumping in various ‘conspiracies’ in order to ‘disprove’ them all in the minds of the simple-minded.

Only a political child believes the msm is ‘trustworthy’ or there’s ever been such a thing as an ‘unbiased’ reporter. I’ve known this for decades way before ‘fake news’ became a thing.

But our domestic blood enemies just keep lying about it because of the healthy population of morons we have in this country and the annual fresh crop of indoctrinates from the govt. schools and universities.

If someone tells me they blindly trust any source I know I’m dealing with a child. Now I’m gonna go re-enforce my ignorance on Bigfoot and beef. Not. (And why does this spellchecker claim ‘Bigfoot’ has to be capitalized. That’s rather strange for a non-existent beast.)

And I know exactly how ‘news’ is made: Go along with editorial policy or get fired.

Don’t understand my bad attitude? Start here.

And who wants to bet that commie site blocks me/deletes my comments?

New Facebook “Fact Checker” Will Warn You About “Fake News” (Yay!)

FK – If I was married to that hideous walrus I’d be looking for something on the side too…

There’s really nothing new about this, except the tools:

FK – There is very little ‘real’ reporting anymore. Most local rags are useless. They’re too afraid of pissing off advertisers besides the fact most of them are staffed by Marxists of one flavor or another. What few ‘conservative’ editors/reporters there are are usually suffering from some degree of blind patriotism.

The biggest problem with fighting commies in any foreign land is that we should’ve kept our troops home and had them kill the commies here first. The ‘enormous danger to the security of the United States’ is here. Most of them were born here.

The first thing any reporter with a brain learns after journalism school is that most of the bastards they interview are lying to them about something, if only by omission. Claiming “I’m only reporting what is told to me,” is the newswhores’ oldest excuse.

Rape is one of the constants of war. Propaganda about it has been used by our own govt. and the Soviet Army used it as a tool of revenge on the German people as they invaded at the end of WWII.

It’s ‘all’ propaganda since propaganda is usually a mix of truth and lies and something in between whether it was written today in a tweet or 3000 years ago by the priests of nomadic tribesmen.

Is Milo Promoting Child Rape?

FK – Milo is political toast. He crossed the line on the biggest taboo there is….

This isn’t about pedophilia or Nazis or commie or Catholic pedophiles but about power. Whenever the evil ones destroy some public figure, any public figure, over any issue, they think they gain power. Sadly to the simple-minded they do.

From the mouth of the beast:

FK – Welcome to the reality of ‘conservative world.’ Yes it sounded very much like you’re advocating consensual sex with 13-year-olds. This is all the simple-minded needed to hear, regardless of what you really think about it. Most of the ‘conservative’ and nowadays liberal(commie) audience will not get past that number.

Welcome to the new age of sexual insanity when we still deny that teens are capable of sexual desire but teach 5-year-olds about Melody’s two mommies or whatever.

The crazies won’t be helped by the culture war.

Waking up is hard to do

It’s wrong to abuse, coerce, take advantage of, deceive, force, on and on anyone of any age into any situation they don’t want to be in. But we force millions of kids to get on the govt. school bus every day with its bullies and send them to a school with teachers who are just as ignorant of reality as the average mush head regardless of how well they may be able to regurgitate what they were spoon fed in the govt. schools and universities.

There are certain topics the mush heads are scared to death of and you found the center of one, really two, and it will be a while before they get over it, if ever.

And the unmentionables do run the banks and the media and Hollyweird. That’s a whole ‘nuther topic unto itself but one we could much more easily get most to understand.

What to teach your kids

I call them the unmentionables. In a free country there’s no such thing as a group whose motives cannot be questioned. When we have that we have a serious problem. We have a serious problem.

The Tea Party’s National Security Threat

Let’s rearrange the deck chairs

Choosing sides

Will Milo survive?:

FK – When I was the age of Milo’s ‘audience’ this stuff wouldn’t have even been discussed in the public sphere, at least not around kids. Are we better or worse off or just as insane as ever but in a different way?

We must first stop lying to ourselves about reality. Sex has been a hot topic since Adam and Eve allegedly figured out what their genitals were for, assuming they weren’t happily using them before they gained the ‘knowledge of good and evil’ and the Hebrew contrived god wasn’t providing them some magical birth control or their offspring were wandering off into the land of Nod or whatever. Sheesh. It’s hard to think about billions still taking that mythology seriously and literally.

As a bumper sticker on a commie’s car I once saw read: “God’s original plan was two naked vegetarians in a garden.”

Now it’s ‘Adam and Steve’ and their adopted son. I feel sorry for the little boy because he may turn out like Milo for possibly similar reasons. No, not his fame and fortune but his obvious perversion, confusion, pain, whatever that will likely here on out interfere with his ability to bridge the gap between an older generation of ‘conservatives'(loosely defined) and a younger generation of ‘libertarian/conservatives'(even more loosely defined) who’ve been indoctrinated in this ‘homosexuality is healthy and normal’ garbage vs. the older generation’s tendency to ignore it or treat it as a ‘sin’ for which it’s adherents fully deserve to be tortured alive in fire forever.

No wait, they deserve the torture simply because they were born as descendants of those who chose knowledge and independent thought over blind obedience.

Yep, we’re still as insane as ever.

James O’Keefe: Main Stream Media Is Now Powerless

FK – Good job but it will take far more than a fear of exposure and prison to end this war.

Because our domestic blood enemies aren’t about to stop lying:

FK – The evil creatures aren’t baffled. It’s just the same old spin. They fully understand the evil they do. There will be only one cure for it.

And be careful who you call ‘friend’:

FK – Gee, I’ve been warning people, patriots, against having “Liberal”(commie) trash friends for some time now.

The fractional voting or whatever must not have been enough.

We’ve got this horse that so many wanted to ride. Let’s see how it jumps.

Five Fast Gun Reforms President Trump Will Sign Into Law

FK – Does Trump understand that the words ‘illegal gun’ are not within the Second Amendment?

When Their Gun Control Candidate Looses, Voters Threaten Gun Violence

FK – They killed 200 million plus in the 20th century alone. They will have no problem returning to their murderous ways.

Will we be saved by a miraculous troglodyte?

Now for some real entertainment:

FK – I do agree with the whore that the majority are stupid, but for different reasons. We’ve had the net for 20 years now. There’s no excuse for this crap anymore.

If this were a nation of thinking people and patriots and men hitlery and its husband of convenience would’ve been executed for treason and waging war on the Bill of Rights decades ago.

Now I understand how war can be so highly entertaining to some.

FKThere’s no such thing as an unbiased reporter

Only children think they can blindly believe any source, whether it’s the lying whore on the evening propagandacast or the ancient tribal propaganda that was designed to keep the slaves working while waiting for paradise in the next life, or punishment for not being good slaves and that also has the added benefit of always keeping them waiting for the world to end instead of working to make the world a better place through increasing Human Liberty.

How sad and pathetic the human species is. We’re still a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark age.

3 Stories That Show the War of Terror Is A Fraud

FK – None of that matters. We still have to go to war to defend god’s chosen, the unmentionables, and their ‘promised land’ according to the ancient tribal propaganda.

And what will they do to hide their lies?:

FK – This world is a dirty place. So many work so hard to shore up their denial of this.

Sources for this linked here.

And our country is the main dirt bag:

FK – How can we rid ourselves of the globalist garbage that is really behind all this? If we had a nation of men we’d have the answer.

Remember, we outnumber them:

FK – After 30 years of trying to pay attention and 20 of waking up I’ve become convinced this reality is a false flag operation.

The amerikan sheeple are the ones who’re failing.

FK – They probably knew full well ISIS(fundie ragheads) or whatever would ‘attack’ Europe, et al.

The ‘agenda’ as always is survival of the fittest. The key issue that we’re failing at is to preserve what one claims to be fighting for. A hint: it’s not supposed to be ‘democracy’ that we’re fighting for, but Liberty, and as always our greatest enemies are not hiding in a cave on the other side of the world. They have white skin and are living down the street and call themselves ‘liberals’ and ‘progressives’ and even ‘tea partiers’ whose real goal is to force their version of authoritarianism on all of us.

And McCarthy was right!!! Search it.

Most-hated senator was right

Joe McCarthy Was Right

Make those claims about McCarthy again and I’ll begin to realize you’re part of the problem.

And you are right about our situation being ‘far more complicated than that.’ Most fear to go there…

Don’t miss this one:

FK – Mainstream Christianity has become part of the problem.

…and lo and behold a hired public servant pulls its head out of its ass:

D.C. Chief Lanier encourages people to ‘take the gunman out’ in active shooter situations

FK – Does this mean the district of commie criminals will now respect our most basic right? A right applied for is a privilege.

G7/Bilderberg Wrap Up – When There’s A Will There’s A Way!

FK – Is your driver going for the Hunter Thompson look?

They may not make the same mistake next year with your ‘press passes.’ Reminds me of a meeting I tried to tape several years back here in Kentucky. Because I was carrying a video camera ‘security’ wouldn’t let me in without a press pass or, I think, my socialist security number. It angered me so much that they tried to make a ‘press pass’ from the ‘official’ and ‘legitimate’ news media a requirement for my exercise of my First Amendment rights that I sat the meeting out.

And I’ve had a ‘real’ press pass. It’s like a license to own or carry or use a gun. I have one of those as well. A right applied for is a privilege. But that’s the situation we’re in because the stupid sheeple go along with it, that’s what’s truly so disgusting about it.

It’s all just a big game and the newswhores know it. They get off on the reflection from the ‘stars’ they cover. Plus most of them don’t mind being slaves as long as there’s corn in the trough.

But there are more of you now and you have a venue we didn’t have, beyond video tapes at gun shows and fax machines. Don’t allow them to steal that from you, at any cost. And prep for what will be required. Our domestic and globalist enemies have invested too much time and money and effort in their evil plans to just walk away because of a few protesters.

Or maybe the newswhores are into the game for other prizes:

FK – Is all this being released now to instill fear in the average dumbass so they won’t fight back?

Religion has always been a tool for the manipulation of populations. Most mainstream ‘Christians’ now believe basically three or four things: 1. We’re gonna get beamed up soon so we don’t have to do anything but; 2. We must pay our taxes and obey the government because the Bible commands it and; 3. “There ain’t nothin’ you can do about it cause it’s all been written down,” and; 4. It’s all in god’s plan and it’s his will so we shouldn’t or can’t fight back.

They send their kids to the govt. schools because they are forced to, and teach them on Sundays that none of this matters because they’re gonna get beamed up soon, yet tell them to get an ‘education’ so they can get good ‘jobs’ and buy all the stuff we think we have to have now, while slaving our days away for the workaholic assholes who own/run the corporations and who would trade us all for third world desperate peasants or robots if they could.

The synopsis of modern ‘Christianity,’ in fact for all its existence, has been “Be a good slave, you’ll have paradise in the next life.” I know, I was raised in that ‘thinking'(loosely defined).

I’ve heard this crap all my life and it disgusts me beyond my ability to describe. They want us to fear and obey them, The religions, which were either created for this purpose or were infiltrated and altered for this purpose, exist to serve this purpose.

Societies, cultures, nations, need a basic ‘morality’ and all, even the communistic ones, have one, or at least attempt to. Did the Roman empire survive for hundreds of years based on its monotheism? Hardly. Their republic was killed off after about 80  years, like ours, then they continued under a series of dictators.

Now we are allowed to ‘vote’ for our dictators which are appointed by our elites behind the scenes. The average dumbass goes to vote every four years for a ‘savior’ that’s telling them the same lies the last one did, and promising to wave a magic wand and solve all their perceived problems, and they go along with this for decades without catching on. How pathetic.

It’s just not in my abilities to put a smiley face on all this…
