Hey Buddy, Can You Spare Me Some Truth

In 1963 there was 50 different owners of media outlets in the USA, every successive Republican Government allowed media to be bought, cannibalized and ultimately concentrated to the point by 1996 there was but 6 corporate giants who owned all North American TV Broadcast stations....

In the USA, in newsprint and on radio you are allowed to lie with impunity but Television broadcasting IS different, TV news broadcasters do not get the luxury to lie, the truth is supposed to be told on TV news....

I have a habit folks, if I'm out and about, out of town, on the island, in the Big Smoke there is one thing I love to do and that my friends is to listen to AM radio late at night, usually between 12:00 am and 3:00 am...Late night AM radio you pick up radio from places far away, radio from San Francisco, LA, Portland, San Jose, sometimes you can pick up radio stations from the strangest far off places, it`s called AM SKIP....It only happens at night, as soon as the morning approaches 5:00 am all the AM radio SKIP stations vanish, you can`t hear them during the day and if you were an average 9 to 5 person/worker you wouldn`t even know these radio stations exist, and believe me folks, American AM radio is exciting, KJO out of San Francisco is very good.....

Listening to American AM radio one gets a real good feel of what is really happening out there, the anger, hatred, racism, corporate theft, one gets to hear the whopper lies local American politicians are spewing, one also gets to see the ugly American in full bloom and occasionally one might get to hear what Americans think of us Canadians and our Canadian Governments.

So here it was Sunday night (Monday Morning) 12: 10 am in the morning and on the dial I came across a {Ring of Fire} pod cast radio broadcast from the eastern USA...


Robert Kennedy Junior was talking about media concentration, how the 6 remaining TV news broadcasters all use the same National news sources, like the AP(associated press), Reuters, and how American media no longer REPORT the news but manage the news, he talked about how the news is being spun and distorted, how the same story reported on Fox news gets completely spun out of context......The radio segment, the segment was about Wisconsin and the nutbar Scott Walker but Robert Kennedy was giving listeners tasty appetizers before they got to the crutch of the story...

Of course anything to do with corrupt media my ears start tingling and what Robert Kennedy Junior said next blew my mind.

Robert Kennedy said that Al Jazerra TV has never had a fine levied against them for lying or spewing false reports on their news casts,  Fox news has been fined $millions for lying on news broadcasts, corporate media told us for years that Al Jazerra was spreading lies and promoting terrorism when the truth of the matter it was Fox News that was doing the lying and promoting world terrorism! .....Isn`t that interesting, Fox news can lie their face off and if the shit hits the fan they merely pay a fine and carry on spinning and distorting, it`s only money and they have plenty...

And the show was just getting started and what was said next had my ears tingling like crazy....Robert Kennedy said....

Up in Canada they have what is called a fairness act, you are not allowed to lie on radio or TV news broadcasts, the legislation has been around for decades.....Harper is Canada`s premier, Canada`s version of a right wing corporate Republican stooge........

Kennedy went on to say


Stephen Harper`s Government brought in legislation to remove the Fairness act, the new legislation would give radio and TV news broadcasters the ability to lie with impunity on air, during newscasts, the legislation WAS so bad, if a news broadcaster lied, no matter what the lie, unless you can prove that the news anchor and or news station deliberately lied ...AND THE LIE WAS DEEMED TO HAVE CAUSED HARM TO THE PUBLIC there is nothing you can do and no where to even file a complaint, the bar was set so high no one would ever be able to stop deliberate lying on the news......Stephen Harper wanted this new legislation in place for when Fox News of the north comes to Canada.

Kennedy went on to say.......

Thank goodness Canada has some great internet investigators that were able to spread the word and STOP the new legislation from going through but the story goes right to the heart of how Right wing corporate Republicans and Conservatives will go to any means to stack the deck, there is no end to what tactics corporate Governments will employ to control the message, first they bring in the legislation then comes corporate money to spread the right wing imperial message and unfortunately, there is no big money pushing or reporting the truth, the money is on the far right, the money is corporate money, $billions of dollars being spent to attack unions and collective bargaining rights, $billions to attack health care and wages...........

So hear I was friends listening to this Ring of Fire pod cast in the witching hours and I was shocked, we reported this legislation, we reported the draconian changes Stephen Harper wanted to make to the Fairness act, the mainstream media said nothing, the legislation Harper was proposing was so bad that shock waves reverberated through Democratic institutions in America about what the Canadian Government was trying to do yet the mainstream media here in Canada failed to report it, it was no accident, it was an on purpose.

Where was I......Class Warfare....That is today`s battle, Scott Walker in Wisconsin will be removed one way or another, I suspect it will be the other, corporations have gone too far, far too far and the pendulum is going to swing or world war will erupt, yesterday was World Woman`s day....Thousands of Egyptian woman had a peaceful march demanding equal rights, they were met by a group of men who threw them to the ground, kicked the girls, spat on them and forced them to return from where they came.....

In Egypt 40% of the people are illiterate, they can`t read, decades of National Egyptian Government concentrated wealth and the masses have less and less, more poverty, no jobs, no hope....But things have changed, internet, satellites, social networks, information....In other words friends the real truth is coming out and it can`t be stopped and unless the right wing corporate machine can find a way to take over the airwaves, control radio, control TV, control newsprint, stop social media, unless these Bilderberg bastards can take back the message and stop the truth the game is over......

Michael Campbell, Michael Levy, Harper, Palin, Republicans, Fraser institute, even the Tea Party was infiltrated by Corporate power.....

These things, these corporate creatures are running scared folks, their message isn`t getting through and even if the right wing corporate message gets through no one is believing it anymore......

The Scott Walkers of the World, the Gordon Campbells, the Harpers, the corporations, they will not lay down, they will not play fair, the battle will be long and bloody, mothers and fathers will stand up and sacrifice for their children, the third world war is here friends, not Nation State against Nation state but the baker, the farmer, the student, the family, the future against the Corporation.....

(PS...The Harper Government has just been nailed!!!....Two rulings came down today...#1) Bev Oda should be charged with a crime...#2) Stephen Harper is lying to the public over what the true costs to the public will be over Harper`s proposed CORPORATE TAX CUTS and PRISON BUILDING AGENDA

The Straight Goods

freedom don't meen nothing unless it's free. K K.Grant, why do you think the msm goes against all of all of the comments [when they allow them]and continue to print this shit? They are losing a cash cow like they lost the clasified adds due to over pricing.I think these guys are going to save us a bit of room in the blue box. And a word to the msn TELL THE TRUTH not what you are told to say.THAT IS YOUR JOB!

If you value an education about matters of Government, finance and Media just read Mein Kampf...page 244, first paragraph. This is eerily similar to today. We get what we deserve

Well,

yes--sure,...you, and RFK Jr., are right: The powers that be are acting too-much like fascists. And it is good to call them out.

But, we have to do more; because war's been engaged, if not openly declared.

They have nice suits and fight like gang-bangers big-time. Having amassed near total control of the giant wurlitzer, they rule the cultural zeitgeist. Though only a small minority, they have a monopoly hold of of the big machinery, because, along the way, they also got the capacity to issue das kapital. Having money ever-ready at hand is a huge advantage in the war of the dudes (as Chris Houston once wailed passionately).

Their claim of "fair-and-balanced" is profound in its' simplicity and affect, but utterly diabolical in its insidious intent to cause "double-think," ala that tale told by Mr. Eric Blair back in 1948.

He knew all too well what we are now just finding out for our own selves. He warned us what was coming. There is a ruling power that is utterly ruthless and totalitarian. And the truth is that when the elite can't just lie about the horror of things, which is what they wanted to do on can.t.v., obviously; then, they just pretend to ignore or go on to obfuscate like hell, using fear, and a lot of other distraction techniques, in order to control the message and thereby guide the people absorbing it. Basically, they cheat and play dirty to win control of the masses for their own benefit. But, at this stage, their game has gotten to be so flagrant in its disregard for us that we must do something about it or risk being cold, wet, and hungry. Is it too hard to imagine them pushing for people to perish by numbers.

Not for me it isn't.

In fact, i believe they are already at it. In my view, it is passed time to begin openly opposing them wherever they over-reach what is just and right.

Towards this end, we must multiply our strength by letting in as much truth as we can.

When enough of the good guys show up, and it won't be long now; i believe we're going to have a field day with them.

Game on.

Great article, as always!! For the record, it's KGO out of San Fran. They had an amazing lefty talk show/educator on at night called, Bernie Ward. Check him out on Google. He's not there anymore. But, his blog is:

So many issues on so many fronts. Chaotic.

As slow and wasteful the government seems to be, sometimes it looks like a good thing as the masses are given ample time to absorb the impact these decisions and directions we are being led to. It is chilling to think if Canada had this(or any?) leader with a majority or worse....think of majority of Campbell in 2001 and the results. We are waking up as are many nations to dictatorships and the like. I appreciate you very much,Grant.

Harper and Campbell are peas in a pod. Both cheat to win. Harper is rabid to win the next election. Harper is all about Global governance, he has spoken of this many times. I just don't like Campbell and Harper's evil agenda's. I want to keep Canada sovereign. I do not want, huge corporations to rule Canada, and the entire globe. Hitler had an agenda too. He wanted to have a thousand year Reich, to govern all country's, in the entire world. Harper is doing to Canada, the same as Campbell has done to BC. Harper and Campbell, have a very close relationship. We all know, Campbell works for Harper. Campbell, Hansen and Harper, colluded on the HST, before the BC election. Hansen had to finally admit, the HST papers were on his desk, before the election.

Sounds like, Harper has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar too. He should be forced to resign, or we will have another Campbell incident, of killing all of Canada, instead of just a province. Harper, gave me the willies, right from day one.

FYI, the mid-c spot price for electricity today is $9.79/MWh. It fluctuates but hasn't gone much over $40/MWh in the past year.

BC Hydro is considering buying power from bioenergy plants at up to $150/MWh.

Grant, excellent post, thanks again for making life easier for us just knowing you are on top of everything and keeping us informed.

If I may, Grant, Surrey school students, teachers, parents, concerned citizens and Laila are holding a rally this Sunday, March 13, 2011 at 1 PM because of the unacceptable schooling fiasco created by the B.C. Liberal mobsters. It is at Holland Park near the fountains @ 13428 Old Yale Road (south from T & T in Central City Mall, across the street. Accessible easily by bus and Surrey Central/KG skytrain stations).

Please spread the word about the rally to all your friends and post on other blogs you go to. The more people any rallies attract says more than anything else we could do right now towards the demise of the B.C. Liberal Bilderbergs.

Just spent the winter in Arizonia. Found out that the state in the last ten years gave large corporation $2o billion in tax cuts. The state now is bankrupt.

Michael Moore is on top of the Wisconsin protests, very encouraging. He is also familiar with B.C/Canada's health system, albeit poorly informed about how bad it is. Perhaps he will look north and include us/mention us at one of his rallies. It would be nice to have someone like him wake the world up to what is happening here too, maybe join forces with him and get this thing rolling in North America. Down with the Bilderbergs, Campbell, Harper and their corporates.

Grant G said...

I really appreciate the compliments folks, IT`S BECAUSE OF YOU THAT I KEEP TRYING TO IMPROVE AND ENLIGHTEN....

I have come to the conclusion in the last week that the BC Medical community are prepared to watch/allow old people to die!!!

Don`t get me wrong people, I am not saying that doctors are doing anything ill towards patient`s health but...

But the steady beating of the drum from Michael Campbell about the silver tsunami, unsustainable health care costs....

I believe that doctors have been told in not so many words too....NOT throw the kitchen sink at elderly patients, don`t fight to give them a couple more years...

In the last week I have been lied to by the medical community, blatant bold faced lies..SEEING IS BELIEVING...

DETAILS TO COME IN A FUTURE POST...

For now family/mom/I have taken over his care..

He has improved lots, everyday he is getting stronger...

A whisker away from death to eating full meals, walking, talking, clarity, and much more...

Our health care is so overwhelmed, the BC Liberals have so gutted the resources, the BC Liberals have done nothing to prepare for more population and more seniors...

I give you all fair warning, do your research, if you want to keep elderly patients alive you will need either lots of money or knowledge...

BC health care is 1/2 step away from senior death panels.

Cheers

Grant,

Sadly, this is what the bogus 'drug shortage' is about.
Sorry you and your family are caught up in the middle of this 'genocide' by the governments. I can't imagine the added stress of not knowing when BIG criminal corporate BRO will selectively decide a loved one's time is up and how and where that will be.
This needs to be taken to an international court?! by a lawyer?! and NOW before more people are murdered.
I also hold the doctors directly responsible if they continue to go along with this.

Don F. said...

Hey grant,
Just a thought as I reread your post again today and the fact that Harper got caught lying about corporate tax cuts and the cost of new prisons. I started wondering why the sudden big push for all these new prisons and why? Treasonous bloggers like you and I perhaps? Criminals don't get prison time anymore so that would make sense to me.
As I said just a thought.
Don

There are some great internet free speech sites, http://grittv.org/ This is what the US media is not reporting and don't want you to see.
Absolutely great site. Right now stream live with the 14 Democratic senators, back in Madison, WI, speaking to a large rally.
