“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’” – George Orwell, 1984
We live in a society in which the news is no longer an investigation, and presentation of the facts, but a finely designed fiction, intended to keep us ignorant of the truth, and voting for the liars. The vast majority of news based programming leans so violently to the left that the American people should have vertigo. Given that journalists are our only access point into the world of politics, they have a frightening amount of power over us, power to warp our ideas to suit their agenda.
When a politician tells a lie, it is the responsibility of the media to take that politician to task. Unfortunately, the politicians who lie the most happen to be Democrats, and the media would never hold their own accountable.
Sheila Jackson Lee is one such lying Democrat that the mainstream media will keep safe. Recently, Lee, distraught over the manufactured Obama impeachment situation, had something very interesting to say:
“I ask my colleagues to oppose this resolution for it is in fact a veiled attempt at impeachment and it undermines the law that allows a president to do his job. A historical fact: President Bush pushed this nation into a war that had little to do with apprehending terrorists. We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had his authority. President Obama has the authority.“
According to Breitbart, however, the Democrats did try to impeach president Bush. The kicker? Sheila Jackson Lee co-sponsored the bill to impeach. So, either she’s losing her mind, or she’s a liar. Given her Party, I’m leaning toward liar. But who could blame her for lying with the protection offered to her by the media? She knows that she can say whatever she wants, and people will believe it as gospel truth because the media will not contradict her. We have such a trust in the media that if they don’t bite, we won’t either.
This is what George Orwell was writing about. If you control the means of information distribution, such as the media, you control the truth—or, what is perceived as the truth. If you control the present, you control the past and the future as well.
Our society is under the influence of a machine that controls their thoughts. The liberal media machine. We may not realize it, but the media shapes our understanding of the world around us, and if they favor one side over the other, we will too. How do you think Obama was elected, then elected again? If the media had done their job, he would have gone down in flames.
Luckily, there is an insurgency. All of us. The expanding conservative media movement has begun to use the internet to combat the liberal machine, and it’s working. Whenever a Sheila Jackson Lee lies directly to the American people, we need to make it known. Whenever Obama stomps on the constitution, it’s up to us to get the word out. We are the insurgency media.
The left cannot control the American people through the media forever.
