Is a knockout on the way?

Only truth tellers get silenced today. Liars are propped up as truth. The truth is edgy and controversial.

Morris Dees, founder and director of the Southern Poverty Law Center, an element of the Israel Lobby that smears and demeans truth-tellers, was fired. The article reporting Dees' removal speculates that he was fired for sexual harassment. More likely he was fired for having to pay out $60 million of the SPLC's $500,000,000 endowment to settle defamation lawsuits.

Ask yourself how is it that an organization committed to smearing people has an endowment of a half billion dollars and not the Institute for Political Economy that focuses on providing truthful information that is contrary to official explanations. Clearly, there is far more money available for "hit man" organizations dedicated to destroying truth tellers than there is for the targets of such organizations.

If truth tellers criticize Israel's treatment of the Palestinians, the truth tellers are branded "anti-Semites."

If truth tellers question official government explanations such as 9/11, they are branded "conspiracy theorists."

If truth tellers correct the official lies that portray Russia as a dire threat to the United States and Russia's President Putin as the "New Hitler," they are branded "Russian agents," and "Putin dupes."

$500,000,000 is a huge endowment for a reputation-smearing organization operating in Montgomery, Alabama. Where did that money come from?

Why, in contrast, are organizations struggling to present facts and rational analysis operating on shoe strings?

The philanthropic foundations, which once supported information independent of government and private agendas, have been taken into the propaganda Matrix that has blinded Americans to the demise of their liberties. Every day another piece of America withers away. Soon there will be nothing left.

Readers need to understand that there is an infinite number of people worldwide who are devoid of all morality and all integrity. Their only concern is money, and they will do anything to get it. Many are paid to smear truth tellers on Internet sites that have comment sections and on Facebook and other social media. Entire websites, such as PropOrNot, have been created in order to discredit truth tellers. Government agencies and special interests employ agents to spread propaganda via social media in order to create public support for overthrowing targeted governments such as Venezuela, Cuba, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Iran.

It is very expensive for a person to exercise the right of free speech for the purpose of telling the truth. But if you attack truth, you get a half billion dollar endowment.

In the United States the only hope for truth lies in the pocket book of ordinary people. If they do not support the alternative media websites that are dedicated to truth, truth will wither away with the country.
