It is amazing to me that people cannot see that politics is a rigged game.
All you have to do is watch the media-circus in Iowa with its constantly changing “front-runners” to understand the degree to which the media controls our elections.
Polls are not news, but they create the news. Knowing the “herd mentality” of most folks, the media, like good sheep-dogs, do their best to drive the flock in the direction they want them to go. Everyone loves a winner and the polls tell us who the winner will be.
It used to be that the American media was somewhat honest…or at least honest in their attempts at reporting a story…but honesty and objectivity have fallen prey to ideology.
I don’t believe any of them. Not Rush, not Hannity, not Faux News, and certainly not Bill O’Reilly. They all claim to be independent, but that is part of the ruse. They all have strong loyalties and they all have someone who pulls their strings…writes their checks…knows what’s in their closets.
Somewhere “behind the curtain”, the decision was made who the “top tier” candidates were going to be. The job of the media is to make sure that the “establishment” favorites are the ones who make it through the primaries to the final stage.
In 2000, in a speech before the Commonwealth Club of California, straight-shooting radio host Michael Savage said:
“As you know, the media is very badly needed to serve as a thorn in the side of government. In order to keep the government reasonably honest we need the media to be constantly poking at it. However, when the media becomes a thorn in the side of the skeptical private citizen, then it becomes an arm of the government. That's why I say, "Beware the Government-Media Complex."
Wake up Zombies. “The People” may get to pick the President, but we sure don’t get to pick who the candidates will be. Can anyone explain to me how John McCain became the Republican nominee in 2008? Did it seem to you like the Republican establishment wanted to lose in 2008? Perhaps they knew the mess that lay on the road ahead.
Are things any different today? Even though he has been in constant campaign mode since 2008, Mitt Romney still cannot get more than 25% of the Republican vote. Yet “they” call him the “front runner”, the only candidate “capable of beating Obama.”
The real story is, everyone knows Romney and 75% of them don’t want him. But the media tells us Mitt is the front-runner and “likely Republican nominee.”
How do they know this?
They don’t. They create the appearance of front-runner status through the use of the latest “public opinion polls.” It is the way they steer the sheep to the winner.
I went to the local mall last weekend, something I rarely do. After about 10 minutes of looking at the crowd I realized that most people are completely imprisoned by the culture, eyes glued to their iPhones. The media controls ever aspect of their lives.
They have no clue what is going on in the world. They only care about sports, or Lady Gaga, or American Idol. Not one in fifty could recite the five-freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment, but they know all about the Kardashian girls.
And the opinion-shapers know it. That is why they try to marginalize…call extreme…The Tea Party or any citizen who seems to be awake. They aren’t really afraid of the “Constitutionalists” because they know they are far out numbered by the zombie-class.
Can’t you see it? Can’t you see what they are doing to Ron Paul…and Palin…and Alan West?
Look, there is a difference between Republicans and Democrats, at the local level. But there is not a dimes-worth of difference between an “Establishment Republican” and an “Establishment Democrat.” The power-brokers in both groups are only interested in PMS. Power…Money…Sex. Change is the last thing they want.
The established political class IS the government. As we have seen, changing Presidents brings very little governmental change. Has the growth and influence of the political class changed in any of the past 30 years? What has remained constant through Bush-Clinton-Clinton-Bush-Bush-Obama is the growth and influence of “government officials” and the decrease in the individual liberty of The People.
That’s why the establishment picks our candidates for us. They don’t care which party wins as long as it is one of their guys. It is a two-card Monte. Heads…government wins, tails…the people lose.
The media creates news by handicapping the next election. They are no different than the sports bookies at Las Vegas. Both are looking for suckers who are looking for a winning bet.
Bookmakers make odds based on information. The establishment-controlled media changes the political odds by creating information through polling.
I think it would be best if we got the polling out of politics.
So here we are, the day after the caucuses in Iowa, and the media is reporting a “victory” for Romney. The real story should be that 75% of Iowa voters picked a candidate other than the Republican “frontrunner.”
Because that is the direction that the marionettes want the party to go, the pollsters will help play the tune to which the conductors want the voters to dance.
Do you think that any pollster will ask the following question?
“Now that 75% of Iowa Republicans have rejected Mitt Romney are you more or less likely to vote for him?"
It more likely will be: “Do you believe Romney’s victory makes him the likely nominee?”
The way the question is asked makes all of the difference.
Romney or Newt is their man. Either way, Newt Obamney, the political class wins.
We The People have been sold out. Traitors in both parties have united against us. They know how the game is played. In the end, we think we went through an election. The political class knows we went to a dance. In 2016 we’ll do it all over again.
“All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts…” Shakespeare
We have trusted that they had our best interests at heart…that they were “looking out for you”…but they were all playing their part on the “establishment” team.
The media is in cahoots with political class to undermine the sovereignty of the people.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” -Cicero
Dr. Savage was right. The Government-Media complex is running the show.
So the dance moves to New Hampshire and on to South Carolina where the tune may change but the instruments will remain the same.
Public opinion polls are the instruments on which they play. The dance isn’t over but the King has already been chosen.
Watch them use the polls to control the fools.
