Hello, again, Insights.
About two weeks ago, Wikileaks began releasing confidential documents of the CIA. The series has been called “Vault 7”. These documents show how the CIA has the capabilities to hack into smartphones, computers, and even televisions. Here is the link to the home of Vault 7. I encourage you to check it out.
Yes, there has been coverage on the Vault 7 dumps from mainstream networks. However, it isn’t a focus for the networks to cover it. We know why that isn’t a focus. The Mainstream Media operates on behalf of corporate interests, which isn’t exposing the truth.
There is no question that the America populous has the right to know what the government and corresponding agencies are doing. The Vault 7 leaks correspond to the likes of Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning. They exposed vital information of the corruption by the United States government.
There has been a larger focus, however, on Russia, alleged ties to Trump, and the alleged election tampering, which is baseless. The CIA claimed this, as well where the media is running with it. The FBI agrees that Russia rigged the election to favor Trump.
Russia has been a focus in corporate and establishment circles since mid-July when they were accusations of hacking the DNC and then leaked emails and other documents to Wikileaks who published them. This is part of the so-called “election tampering.” They exposed information where the DNC colluded with Hillary Clinton from the beginning. After the leaks, many in the Democratic Establishment attempted to play the victim, but they didn’t have a good argument because they were clearly corrupt and were covering it.
Let’s get something straight: There have been many stories on what Russia allegedly did. The two biggest ones were the DNC leaks and election hacking. The latter claim muddies the waters and encourages sensationalism by the mainstream media.
These are baseless claims. The current Russia story is a textbook definition of McCarthyism which is making accusations without evidence. The corporate media won’t call anything out because they are a part of the corrupt system. Six major companies control 90 percent of the Media in the United States. The networks are Comcast, Time Warner, CBS, Newscorp, Viacom, and Disney.
Members of Congress, particularly Democrats, are pushing the Russia narratives. Just because the CIA says something is true, it doesn’t mean that it is true. The CIA doesn’t provide evidence. In January, US Intelligence released their declassified report on the alleged Russia election tampering. Read it for yourself with the link provided. From what I read, it is empty and vacuous and has no substantial evidence. There has not been ANY evidence given to support the claims of a Russia election hacking or them hacking the DNC. If there was evidence, I would present it to you.
As you all know, Congress is bought and controlled by wealthy special interests. Check out Open Secrets to see where the money is going. This is the reason why they don’t pass legislation, let alone discuss legislation that would benefit the American people. Republicans in the Senate broke the filibuster record under Obama, however having few legislative ideas of their own. The same applies to Democrats. Both parties have a similar message that is filled with vague, empty platitudes because they actually cater to Corporate America.
The United States, while technically a democracy, is effectively an oligarchy. Unsupported claims are riddled all over the mainstream press while ignoring the real issues. These reasons are why independent media is more important than ever.
