The Alternative Media is Replacing the Mainstream Media: Here’s How You Can Help

The Alternative Media is Replacing the Mainstream Media: Here’s How You Can Help

24th August 2016

It’s been a roller-coaster ride for the alternative media. The last decade has seen an explosion in independent content that is not associated with the corporate media monopolies, as well as an associated growth in individuals joining the ‘truth movement’. There have also been many hiccups too, such as controlled opposition sites which lurk covertly in the shadows and provide misinformation as psy-op trickery to distract us from what’s really going on.

In utter defiance, the last five years in particular has really accelerated in terms of the traffic that independent journos and platforms have received. However, the last year has been tough. Real tough. In perfect response to that growing attention, the control-matrix and its technological arms have implemented algorithms and search parameters that have inhibited the reach of the free-thought mediums.

Simply, they’re trying to send the alternative underground to separate it completely from the mainstream, because they know that if it continues on the same trajectory it will replace the mainstream entirely. By keeping the alternative information strictly controlled – as they know they can’t yet stop it doing what it likes – their approach is to slow down the amount of people transitioning to the truth, away from the lie.

Parts of the Independent Media: Losing Their Compass

Parts of the Independent Media: Losing Their Compass

10th August 2016

The Independent Media in general has done a great job of counterbalancing the corrupt and mendacious MSM (Mainstream Media). However, it’s disappointing to see how certain leading alternative media researchers, journalists and websites have gotten caught in the trap of duality, anger, judgment, the fraudulent left-right paradigm, blaming false enemies, failing to deeply question MSM narratives and failing to grasp the bigger picture of the worldwide conspiracy.

Election season in the US tends to bring out the worst in people, and this has certainly been no exception inside the Independent Media. For a long time, I have greatly admired people like Jeff Rense, Alex Jones, Stefan Molyneux and others who have done such a great job exposing the conspiracy, but all of them have in one way or another got caught in a “limited hangout” and have taken paths that lead to nowhere. Don’t get me wrong – I still respect them for what they’ve done in the past. However, the topic of Donald Trump and the theme of Islamic terrorism have apparently confused even some of the most seasoned researchers and leaders in the Alternative Media, making me wonder: Have parts of the Independent Media lost their compass?

3 Ways to Beat News Headline Fatigue (Without Making Anyone ‘The Bad Guy’)

3 Ways to Beat News Headline Fatigue (Without Making Anyone ‘The Bad Guy’)

It’s hard to turn on the TV, check Facebook, or read a newspaper these days without an inundation of fear. Global unrest is perennial. But us Westerners can usually cope with it through our inbuilt “us and them” brain networks…

While the neural circuitry responsible for our ability to differentiate between members of our social “ingroup” and “outgroup” is the very cause of racial prejudice and cross-cultural conflict, it’s also a biologically adaptive mechanism for coping with the inevitable injustices of the world. It lets us overlook, and perpetrate, terrible things in the name of self preservation. Because, well, that’s happening to them, not us. And they are somehow fundamentally different from us, to the effect they are no longer my social responsibility, and my nervous system doesn’t feel their pain as my own.

But lately, people we think could be us, in places we assume should be safe, are no longer seemingly so. In the last month alone we’ve seen violence in Turkey, Nice, Orlando, and Dallas. There’s been attacks in Paris, Brussels, San Bernadino, and the Sydney siege. We’ve had riots and natural disasters.

Media Bias and the Illusion of Democracy

Media Bias and the Illusion of Democracy

29th July 2016

By Ryan Cristian

Guest writer for Wake Up World

The mainstream media in the US has become a universal joke. Even those who regularly watch a given mainstream news channel will openly admit that every channel has obvious bias, and then justify their viewing it by saying, “but that is why I watch both channels; to hear both sides.”

This has become the common answer to how an American stays informed in this age of blatant pandering and misinformation. What should be shocking to anyone who can stand back and remember the honor-bound public service that was originally envisioned of media, is that the obvious bias has become so pronounced and commonplace that it is now an accepted part of the process. Many would propose that the news had never lived up to those grandiose idealistic pillars of impartiality and morality that were visualized, and that may indeed be the case. Yet that does not change the fact that these people were given a mandate they have failed to live up to, and likely never even feigned an attempt at — once they recognized the value of selling their interests to the highest-bidding corporate sponsor.

How Popular Music’s Lyrics Perpetuate American Idiocy

How Popular Music’s Lyrics Perpetuate American Idiocy

By Claire Bernish

“Pop music in America right now is so superficial… there’s no substance at all. It’s devoid of any meaning. And I’m not just saying that as a 45-year old rock musician, I’m saying that as a human being. If the Number One song is about your butt, that’s a problem.” ~ Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters

A recent study served to confirm the patently obvious: song lyrics for the most popular genres of music are ridiculously obtuse — and getting worse over time. Though this might not be a revelation, the figures are distressing indicators of both an intellectually vapid societal and cultural future.

If you’ve already moved away from Billboard music, congratulations, you refuse to be insulted. But if you haven’t, or if you’re concerned about pop culture trends acting as portents of systemic dysfunction, you should probably pay attention.

FBI Transcript Shows Nobody Died in Orlando Shooting Until SWAT Teams Entered the Building

Facts that should have been front-page news everywhere somehow got buried among the “official narrative” we were given about the Orlando shooting.

Judge Andrew Napolitano has told FOX News that an FBI transcript indicated that no one died until 05:13am Sunday morning, June 12th, when the police SWAT teams entered the building.

“Here’s what is news in the summary – nobody died until 05:13 in the morning, when the SWAT team entered. Prior to that no one had been killed. The 53 that were injured, and the 49 that were murdered all met their fates at the time of, and during, the police entry into the building,” Judge Napolitano said.

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration  – Nikola Tesla

Energy is a property of objects, which can be transferred to other objects or converted, but cannot be created or destroyed. Literally, everything in the known universe is energy in some form or another, whether it’s thoughts, emotions, actions or objects. The law of vibration states that all energy in the universe vibrates at a particular frequency, therefore it’s in a constant state of motion. The vibrational frequency directly determines the form in which the energy will take and according to the law of attraction, energy which vibrates at a particular frequency will attract other energies that vibrate at the same frequency. The question is, what vibrational frequency is society tuned to? Continue Reading – The Coming Revolution – A New Vibrational Reality

Censorship Still Rampant Around the World

Censorship Still Rampant Around the World

By Makia Freeman

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Censorship is still a big issue around the world. Censorship remains at high levels in many countries, despite the fact that we tend to think we live in a world without that much of it (at least in the supposedly “enlightened and developed West”).

Why are censorship levels so high? There can really only be one reason for it in the end: our so-called “authorities” are afraid of free thought, free speech and the free flow of information. Why? Because it would uncover their secrets, expose their corruption, contradict their fake narratives, dissolve mental structures and undo notions of citizen obedience and civic duty that have been drilled into us since birth, mainly through military- and Rockefeller-influenced education.

Have you ever felt like you’re in a wash-rinse-repeat cycle watching the news, not just mainstream but even alternative media? Much of it is just that, in effect, if it doesn’t draw actionable conclusions or serious elevation in thought and perception. If newly discovered or implicated avenues of personal as well as social expression aren’t pursued, what’s the purpose of pointing out the need for them?

Yes, information is crucial to awakening humanity from its disconnected slumber. But when the dots are connected and we realize we’re in a fabricated landscape of illusion, what then?

One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas. — Victor Marie Hugo (1802 – 1885), The History of a Crime

While sharp looking liars in suits transmit the state approved “news’’ readily packaged for public consumption, the American people are waking up to the televised lies and deception of the mainstream media. Recent attacks on the U.S. Constitution and thus on the people, have shaken many more minds out of the hypnotic trance perpetuated by the mainstream propaganda machine which falls apart when analyzed with the facts omitted from their scripts.

Why “Alternative” Media is the New Mainstream

Why “Alternative” Media is the New Mainstream

The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox… There will be no highlights on the eleven o’clock news… The revolution will not be right back after a message… The revolution will not go better with Coke… Because the revolution will not be televised. ~ Gil Scott Heron

Let’s face it, the mainstream media, like CNN, Fox News etc. are great at reporting on the surface understandings of surface issues; car accidents and plane crashes, shootings and robberies; as well as reinforcing why our latest foreign war or domestic loss-of-rights is good/necessary/the only way to peace and security. But if you really want to investigate and comprehend what is actually going on in the world, and why, you have to go past the mainstream.

Just look at the countless global events being reported by the underground news and compare it to the selective, politically-biased fear-fare of the mainstream; there is little journalistic integrity on display in the mainstream media, just the regurgitation of B.S. And lots of it. Even the surface events reported in the mainstream are often filtered, distorted and even blatantly constructed by media corporations that conceal their corporate and political alliances behind the guise of “news”.

Black Magic: Satanists Rule the World, Not Politicians, Bankers or Military Heads

Black Magic: Satanists Rule the World, Not Politicians, Bankers or Military Heads

By Makia Freeman

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.” ~ J. Edgar Hoover

Black magic is the force that rules the modern world, so it is the Satanic black magicians that constitute the true controllers of the world – at least in the human Earthly realm. The Satanic black magicians pull the strings, not politicians, corporate bosses, military heads, intelligence chiefs or even international bankers – although they also hold many of those roles.

The NWO (New World Order) elite fulfill a hidden role and an outer, more respectable public role. While many Satanic black magicians are also businessmen and bankers, their true ruling power comes from Satanism and the twisted use of humanity’s creative power (black magic), which they then use in their secular roles in society.
