It is very interesting how outside of the U.S. people see Hillary for who she really is What is really interesting is that outside the USA, everyone sees Hillary for what she really is — a greedy politician. Of course, MSNBC would never say a bad word against Hillary for she walks on water. When the law requiring balanced media reporting vanished in 1987, mainstream media gradually moved toward propaganda machines. It was the Fairness Doctrine of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), originally introduced in 1949. This required the holders of broadcast licenses to present controversial issues of public importance, and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission’s view, honest, equitable, and balanced. The FCC eliminated the Doctrine in 1987, and in August 2011, the FCC formally removed the language that implemented the Doctrine. That set in motion the propaganda machine of mainstream media. The real goal of this was to prevent investigative reporting since media was no longer required to present the truth. The FCC turned media into one giant propaganda machine.
Outside the USA remains a totally different. Edward Snowden had to go to London to get the word out, for no major American news organization would have protected him. They would have offered him coffee while waiting for the NSA to come get him. I myself chose to go with the European media for the very same reason. No Russian activist would have expected Pravda to protect them either. So what does that say about the American press? The banks paid $5.7 billion in fines for manipulating FX markets. Not to mention the fact that I had all the evidence on bank manipulations back in 1999. Allan Cohen seized that evidence and was granted board membership at Goldman Sachs — yet did not reign from the court. One would think keeping both positions would raise an eyebrow in the New York press. Obviously not if they are bought and paid for.
The Japanese Times has reported “Hillary Clinton’s Lucrative Life of Crime”. This would NEVER appear in the U.S., for the press loves her just because she is a woman. They loved Obama because he was black. They handed him the Noble Peace Prize and then he tore apart everything previous administrations accomplished to create world peace. He has pissed off just about everyone and in Europe, where they call him a “great disappointment”. In the case of Hillary, we indeed know where she stands – in the back pocket of the New York banks.
The fact that the Japanese Times has titled their story “Hillary Clinton’s Lucrative Life of Crime” is indicative of what our model has been warning for 2015.75. This should be the peak in government; what comes after is the battle of all battles — their quest to destroy the democratic process to retain power at all costs. With her adviser being Gary Gensler, formerly of Goldman Sachs, we know what to expect – economic meltdown.
