David Stockman, a former member of the House of Representatives and a former director of the Office of Management and Budget, accurately describes Muller's indictment as a "comic book indictment" and "a great big nothingburger."

Stockman points out some of the facts that Mueller, Rosenstein, Fox News, CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, BBC, etc., have failed to tell us:

"The nefarious 'troll farm' in St. Petersburg that comprises nearly the totality of Mueller's case is not a Russian intelligence agency operation at all."

"Nowhere in the entire 37 pages is there even a clause linking Prigozhin's Hobby Farm to the SVR (foreign intelligence service), the FSB (counter-intelligence and anti-terrorism), the GRU (military intelligence service), any other agency of the Russian State -- or even some purported Kremlin back channel to Putin."

The question is: Why is the entirety of the print and TV media, a huge chunk of the Internet and social media, a majority of Congress, the entirety of the military/security complex and even a Disney movie, "His Double Life," determined to elevate "the Russian threat"? The Disney movie concludes with these words across the screen: Russian agents "are your neighbors. Your co-workers. Your friends. Your husbands." The "Russian agents" are not only under your bed, but also in bed with you! (Notice that the Russian agents are men, not women, thus in keeping with Identity Politics.)

Keep in mind how rare truth is told and how unlikely you are to hear and read the truth.

The concentration during the Clinton regime of the diverse and partly independent media into the hands of six mega-corporations created the ability to control the explanations the public is given. Now the ruling oligarchy is moving to bring the Internet under control as well.

Richie Allen, the host of the most popular independent radio show in Europe, found his Google/YouTube channel deleted yesterday. 1,400 videos of interviews with former CIA officers, bankers, journalists, scientists, including yours truly, simply disappeared. These were largely videos providing counter-narratives to the official explanations. YouTube has a policy that allows deletion of videos that offend people who have been brainwashed and find it painful to have their beliefs challenged. In other words, anything that does not adhere to the official explanations is considering bullying and harassment to the brainwashed masses who are no longer to be permitted the choice between the blue pill and the red pill.

Google/YouTube censorship is hitting other sites also. See here.

The decision to control all explanations fed to Americans was made years ago. Clearly, the concentration of 90% of the US print, TV, and radio media in the hands of six mega-companies during the Clinton regime was a major step forward. Other concentrations, such as Google/YouTube, have followed. All of these concentrations are illegal under the Sherman Antitrust Act, but the act is no longer enforced, because according to the neoliberal junk economists, "markets are self-regulating."

In the absence of a diverse and independent media, there is no such thing as democracy and government accountable to the people. By controlling explanations, the ruling oligarchs can use government for whatever best serves them. The people are the losers.

The Trump presidency is the perfect timing for the oligarchs to take over control of all information. The liberal/progressive/left hate Trump so much that they are willing to ignore the proven fact that Russiagate was a FBI/Obama/Hillary conspiracy against Trump in order to use the false accusation as a weapon against Trump. Gun control advocates and Identity Politics are willing to turn a blind eye to the unanswered questions about school shootings and terrorist bombings in order to get more gun control and police power to suppress "white supremacists." Partisan in their approach, they do not consider that the same power will be used against them.

As far as I can tell, the vast majority of young Americans have no idea what is at stake. Most will never realize that their reality consists of controlled explanations. They will never know the truth about anything.
