Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours (9/10/18).
We have, as Harold Pinter said in his Nobel address, been feeding on “a vast tapestry of lies” that surrounds us, lies uttered by nihilistic leaders and their media mouthpieces for a very long time. We have, or should have, bad consciences for not acknowledging being active or silent accomplices in the suppression of truth and the vicious murdering of millions at home and abroad. ~Edward Curtain.
The history of this nation is littered with the bodies of the innocent, dating all the way back to the "discovery" of the American continent. Most simply make a conscious choice to tell themselves that this is not the case, because admitting this as fact makes it much more difficult to pretend that the current US oligarchy has any moral authority whatsoever. Yet, deep down, we know better, but somehow we manage to continually choose to believe these career liars. The propaganda blinds us from seeing what is happening right before our eyes, because we allow it to, making it just a little bit easier to stomach the lies.
What we are seeing today, with efforts like the anonymous op-ed published by the New York Times, is really quite brilliant. In one fell swoop, this carefully crafted manipulation has made it so that regardless of the actions carried out by the current administration -- that are simply an extension of every administration before it, and decades of planned neocolonialism -- one side will always be able to simple say, well that is just the "deep state" or the "resistance group" and not Trump, and the other side can tell themselves that it's all okay, because there is an organized effort to fight from within so they can just sit back and trust that action is being taken on their behalf. So both sides are now seemingly “trusting the plan” of their respective manipulators, all carried out by the very same government that has lied to them for decades, and neither feels that the actions taken are representative of "their side" or "their politics," even while it is exactly that, whether they want to admit it or not. The truth being, that there is only one side, creating the illusion of sides to keep us fighting amongst ourselves and never seeing this all for what it truly is.
And while this game of deflection and identity politics consumes many of the most active Americans, the same verifiably long-sought goals are still being carried out, right in front of us. While so many bicker about the topics placed in front of them by the ruling hand, simply responding to whatever stimuli appears in their view like a cat batting at some dangling toy, people are dying, countries are falling; and the one group that has the power to make it all stop, stands on the front line of a manufactured divide, starving, exhausted and overwhelmed, all while pointing the finger at their brethren, as the social engineers laugh at our devotion to their ploy, and stuff their pockets full of what is rightfully ours.
As always, take the information discussed in the video below and research it for yourself, and come to your own conclusions. Anyone telling you what the truth is, or claiming they have the answer, is likely leading you astray, for one reason or another. Stay Vigilant.
