The Illusion of The Matrix Shatters: Corruption, Fake News & The Big Shift

Facebook: An Epic Orwellian Fail

Just prior to the election, we laid it all out here on Thrasher's Wheat about how a perfect storm was forming as the elite mainstream media headed towards meltdown in the face of alternative, crowd sourced, citizen journalism outing the massive global corruption which would lead towards what we have termed "The Big Shift" (see transparency and full disclosure).

For longtime TW readers, you know that with 2003's release of Neil Young's "Greendale" -- which hit us like a sledgehammer to the anvil of truth -- we have been covering the ever expanding vortex of corruption (and perversions) while trying to mix in some of Neil's activities in the areas of music, film, literature, and technology, among other assorted random musings. (Also, see
Yes, There's Corruption on THE HIGHEST FLOOR (and most of the floors below, too) : Yet More Inconvenient Truth in Greendale. Because, you really can't handle the truth... nor do you want to.)

'She was welded to the eagle's beak
sun green leaned into that megaphone
and said, "truth is all i seek" '
"Sun Green"
by Neil Young

Again, for longtime TW readers, you know that we have been quite alarmed by the accelerating events propelling us well beyond the prophecies laid out by George Orwell's 1984 and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Today, we have an ever growing clamor by the elite media to reign in "fake news" that would make the crusading anti-Communist Joseph McCarthy quite proud. It is without irony, that nowhere in the establishment is there a concern whatsoever about infringing on our Constitutional rights of free speech and free press.

As everyone is recognizing, the real threat to democracy and freedom is the propaganda spewing elite mainstream media which is ramping up their war on "Fake News". And the irony of ironies is that the war on "Fake News" is being waged with -- what else -- fake news.

"Fake news" is just the new re-branding of the old "conspiracy theory" psy-op. To know the mockingbird, is to kill the mockingbird.

The Hypocrisy of the Mainstream Media

None other than the establishment Washington Post (owned by Amazon Corp.'s CEO billionaire Jeff Bezos) published an article on "Fake News" that was immediately found to be in fact "fake" because it was sourced from the non-existent entity ProporNot.

Afterall, the esteemed New York Times committed the gravest of journalistic sins when "reporter" Judith Miller falsely reported that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction in 2003. This was epic, egregious and massive fake news. What is chaff and what is wheat? Like we say, always use disCERNment.

Banned Since July 2015 Accused of Being "Fake"

Open up the tired eyes. Eyes wide shut, we tried to lay it all out very specifically just prior to the election. And then clarified any mis-understandings shortly after the election.

The Devil Comes to Greendale

And to crystallize our point, we made this comment using a quote from the late-great gonzo Hunter S. Thompson. That said, just as Neil Young takes no pleasure in being right yet again, nor do we in speaking truth to power. No one does. We all pray to be proven wrong.

The Truth Can Not Be Censored

And we won't quit, either, because we also wish somebody would share the news. We'll keep on bloggin' till our batteries are dead.

Greendale Sign

So be aware that the eternal divide and conquer strategy is alive and well. So stay calm, no fear, and rock on.

We don't want no stinkin' civil wars, thank you.

There's a war on truth. So light that candle. And keep the flame of love burning brightly.

The juxtaposition of Thrasher & Wheat in that picture offers one more layer. Thrasher has Balls. Taking a stand against The Man, purveyor of conspiracy theories (always backed up with facts, fake or otherwise), Thrasher continues to provoke thought, disCERNment, and the question of authority at all levels.
