Congress Moves To Outlaw Alternative Media

censorshipBy: Dave Hodges.

The alternative media is having a dramatic impact on the worldview of the country, so much so that US Senate is legislating against the only objective press left in the country.

It is a well-known fact that Senator Dianne Feinstein wants your guns and now she wants control over your words. Feinstein believes that a proposed media shield law should be applied only to who she refers to as “real reporters.” Feinstein chastises other reporters as “basement-dwelling, pajama-clad bloggers with no professional credentials”

At issue is that the government could soon decide who is a journalist and who is not. Feinstein introduced an amendment that defines a “covered journalist” as someone who gathers and reports news for “an entity or service that disseminates news and information.” The definition includes freelancers, part-timers and student journalists, and it permits a judge to go further and extend the protections to any “legitimate news-gathering activities.” In the definition introduced in Feinstein’s amendment, somebody writing for a small town paper with a circulation of 30 would receive First Amendment protections, but Steve Quayle, John Stadtmiller, Jeff Rense, Alex Jones, Michael Edwards, George Noory and Matt Drudge would not be considered journalists; and, therefore, the First Amendment would not apply to the group of aforementioned newsmen. But Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper, who according former CNN award-winning journalist, Amber Lyon, stated that the CIA bribes reporters at CNN to cover some stories while not covering others, presumably would.

Feinstein’s Amendment includes the following verbiage which goes after nearly anyone who does not work in the corporate-controlled media in which she states that one is only a real journalist if they have worked for “an entity or service that disseminates news or information by means of newspaper; nonfiction book; wire service; news agency; news website, mobile application or other new information service…news program; magazine or other periodical…or through television or radio broadcast…” These people would have to have the “primary intent to investigate events and procure material in order to disseminate to the public news or information.” Opinion journalists are probably not be covered
The mainstream media is not the friend of people seeking the truth. The media is largely controlled by six corporations representing the same people and corporations which are trying to install the New World Order.

I have been a direct victim of these globalist lunatics and this is the story on why, I, a person who had no training as a journalist, subsequently decided to take matters into my own hands and try and make a difference through the use of the pen and the microphone.

Professionally, I teach graduate students how to perform research on their capstone projects as they complete their graduate studies. I also teach psychology and sociology courses. I am a recently retired college basketball coach. I had no training nor any desire to ever become a journalist. I have to confess that my activism was forced upon me by the likes of John McCain and his globalist psychopaths.

Nine years ago, I moved to my wonderful country home, 30 miles north of Phoenix, in order to escape the blight of urban living. Shortly after moving into my dream home, the State of Arizona, the corrupt federal government and John McCain, led a coordinated effort to force my community to forfeit our land without compensation. We had a lot of powerful people lined up against us in the media and in business as well as in politics.

My 300 neighbors, living peacefully on 1-2 acre homes surprisingly chose me to be the spokesperson of group in leading the fight to restore our lost property rights. Initially, the globalists and their mindless servants said that we were in the way of Luke Air Force Base over-flights and we should have never been permitted to move where we did. The globalists were going to use the force of law to move us. But wait, Luke AFB is 30 miles from our community and they had to fly over a quarter of a million people to reach us. Our builder received approval from all entities, including Luke AFB, before building our homes. So, we knew that the globalist excuses which were designed to force us off of our land were a lie. These unsavory people wanted us gone from the land in order to secure our precious resources for which they needed to support their globalist expansion plans.

When the globalists are busy stealing from people, organizations and nations, there are the reasons they use to justify their heinous acts, and then there are the real reasons why they engage in their never-ending, felonious assaults upon humanity. What our community leadership soon discovered was that 7 miles to the west of us, a planned North American Union Corridor (i.e. CANAMEX toll road Highway) controlled by Spain’s King Juan Carlos will someday sweep through my area. Seven miles to the east, these globalists were also planning to build a huge infrastructure support system for the CANAMEX Highway system. Not so coincidentally, my community sits on the state’s largest underground water aquifer in the Southwest. Subsequently, the John McCain-led globalists wanted us off of our land so that they could have access to our rich water resources in support of these globalist projects. Instead of enforcing eminent domain procedures upon the properties of our community, in which the globalist forces would have had to pay fair compensation under the 5th Amendment, the globalists decided to do what they do so well: steal what they wanted.

In violation of our due process rights, and without so much as any public notice being issued, the State of Arizona began to secretly consider and pass legislation which would ultimately force most of my community off of our land without compensation. All in the name of pleasing the international banksters, the state passed some very draconian laws which forbade us from repairing our homes after storm damage. We were forbidden to build pools, fences, detached garages, patios, perform roof repairs, nor could we build a barbecue pit. Most disturbingly, we were not able to rebuild in case of a fire. Oh yes, we would still have to pay our mortgage payments for a house that no longer existed, but we could not rebuild. This also made us ineligible for insurance reimbursement in the event of a catastrophe. In short, we could build NOTHING, and our homes, over time, became worthless. In 2006, we could not have given our homes away. Interestingly, our drop in property values never saw a corresponding drop in property taxes which presumably was based upon the assessed value.

I spoke to lawyers far and wide with the hope that they would take our case as I was, at that time, still deluded that our court system still stood for justice. I received a real education when no lawyer would touch our case because they were all afraid of the powerful and corrupt globalist, John McCain. Much of the local media lined up against us calling us unpatriotic and that my community was a ”threat to national security.” In fact, the editorial head of the communist-run Arizona Republic newspaper, Venita Hawthorne James, even told us that “for the greater good, we should just get off our land” (without compensation). My community lived through some very dark days and it seemed that the globalists were everywhere and were controlling everyone. Collectively, we lost a lot of sleep during this time.

After many lost battles and many frustrations, I was able to pull the right strings in the Libertarian Party and they subsequently convinced the attorneys at the Goldwater Institute to step in — and they stopped the government from forcing us off our land without even needing to file a law suit. Like so many globalists, when you shine the light of day upon their criminal actions, they quickly run for cover. In short, we won, and we won against all odds. This was a true case of David defeating the globalist Goliath.

In the process of fighting for my community, I appeared on many local and national talk shows. At some point, I attracted the attention of the late Pete Peterson who owned KBSZ radio in Wickenburg, AZ., and he offered me my own show. At first, I turned him down because I did not think I possessed the skills to host my own show. After appearing on his show for the third time, Pete announced on the air, that I was starting my own show the following Sunday. That same week, Ernie Hancock, owner of the Freedoms Phoenix website, offered me an editor and columnist position with his site. After Pete sold his station, John Stadtmiller of The Republic Broadcasting Network, offered me a slot on his great network and this is where I am fortunate to broadcasting from today.

When I look back at my life, there was nothing that would suggest that I would ever become a talk show host and I never thought I would become a writer that is read by any more than just a scant few people. My subsequent message to all of you potential warriors in the liberty movement, is that you don’t have to be extraordinary in skill, but most of all you have to possess a true sense of justice and a courageous spirit and believe wholeheartedly in what you are doing.

Ten years ago, I was unaware of the extent of the globalist de-industrialization and depopulation plans for humanity. Today, I know that humanity is in for the fight for its collective lives. I have come to realize that I am having a small impact on waking up and mobilizing some people to action. However, mankind needs all of you who are reading these words to carry the torch of liberty. And for goodness sakes, do not tell me that you cannot do it. If I can do this, anyone can. For it is only when all of us rise up together to say “no more” to the globalists, will humanity preserve its future.

Please take the first step and use your God-given talent to increase your sphere of influence. This country needs a 100 million Paul Reveres to rise up and warn the rest of our slumbering countrymen about the treacherous roads which lie ahead as we fight for our freedom and ultimately our survival. Do not wait, like I did, until you have a crisis which forces you into the fight. At some point in history, all of us will be called to fight anyway. You might as well make it a fight of your own choosing. DO IT NOW!!

If your heart is in the right place, divine circumstances will show you a way that you can use your talents in order to further the cause of liberty. When that moment arrives, as it is for so many other like-minded Americans, you will soon realize that you are where you are in relationship to our fight, not because of your talent and an omnipresent need to satisfy your ego’s need for attention, but you will come to realize that you have been placed in this position by powerful spiritual forces and ultimately circumstances beyond your control. As a result, you will develop a self-awareness that you are part of a special mission for which your creator has chosen for you to perform.

As we witness the rising tide of our liberty movement which has already begun, I cannot wait for the day when our efforts culminate in a counter-critical tsunami which will sweep across the planet and will result in the taking back of our rightful heritage from those who have temporarily absconded with our fortunes, our freedoms and the collective future of humanity. You can start by simply convincing one person per day that their life depends on their participation. This movement does not have to totally consume your life. However, it does require a regular time investment. Please do it now, because evil never takes a holiday, and mankind already has its back up against the wall. Ultimately, your life, and the lives of your loved ones depends upon your participation.

    I am glad and grateful that the world has people awake and aware like you, thank you. I live in France but am becoming increasingly conscious of all that you are talking about and it concerns me. I shall not let it rest. I’m so glad you all got back control of your homes.

    Inspiring words. This attempts to silence truth and end freedom of speech reveal fear from their part, which means they feel it too, this beautiful growing movement to free humankind from the shackles of oppression.

    I sometimes wonder how these people like Senator Dianne Feinstein feel. I mean, no matter how much you try to fool yourself, deep within you have to KNOW you are fighting for the wrong side. You are selling that which matters the most from yourself, your very soul, to the world of banking and profit and exploitation and materialism and dishonesty. How sad. I truly feel sorry for them…

    Good ‘ol Chucky Schumer. Never misses an opportunity to get in front of a camera and make an ass of himself. Spends more time looking like he’s doing something than he actually does doing anything. The epitome of career politician.

    “It is a well-known fact that Senator Dianne Feinstein wants your guns and now she wants control over your words.” Oh really, professor? This is a shocking assertion–and one that is not supported in your blog.
    You have done nothing to illustrate that Feinstein is gagging the alternative media or plans to do so. Where are bloggers’ liberties being shredded? The media shield law, imho, is a good idea–and it should protect reporters who are actually gathering sensitive info from sources.
    The “nonreporters” you mentioned (Drudge et al) aren’t typically reporting–i.e., gathering first-hand info, sometimes of a sensitive nature. Instead, your examples are typically drawing from printed reports and drawing their own conclusions, which are indeed influential and sometimes break news or pull things together in an insightful way. Rarely, however, are they getting the sensitive first-hand info–and sources–which is what they law seeks to protect.
    Bloggers, essayists, and alternative sources do play an important role in information dissemination–Russ Kick’s Memory Hole publishing the first photos of the American war dead returning from Iraq was an example of how the mainstream media got a kick in the pants from a blogger. Julian Assange and Wikileaks wouldn’t have happened if the media weren’t asleep at the wheel. However, such cases are rarities.
    Bloggers usually repeat and refashion info, and, frankly, their research and writing aren’t always of the highest quality. Everybody has the right to write, and to publish. But the question is should they have special protection, shielding their sources? Feinstein says no, and I agree with her, because bloggers don’t report and conduct their own first-hand investigations–i.e. interviews–and don’t need to be shielded from revealing their sources.
    While I, too, am concerned about who is controlling the media, and the information they are blocking, and agendas they are forwarding, in this essay, you go in a different direction than the one you started developing with your assertions about Feinstein, instead turning this into an “Everybody should write” pep talk, pulling in examples of things that aren’t germaine, threading them with religious beliefs and your personal woes, and shedding little insight about what is really happening in the Senate with regards to this bill, what the specifics of the bill are or the effects it would or wouldn’t have media or what even prompted it.
    I didn’t see a lick of actual reporting here: Did you put in a call to Feinstein’s office and try to get a quote or clarification about what she is saying? Oh that’s right. You’re not a reporter.
    You’re a blogger, a talk show host, a professor, a basketball coach. Your opinions and right to express them are protected under the First Amendment.

    Thank you- Melissa Rossi. I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed the fallacies Hodges used.

    “This country needs a 100 million Paul Reveres to rise up and warn the rest of our slumbering countrymen about the treacherous roads which lie ahead as we fight for our freedom and ultimately our survival.”
    Our survival? Really? Thank you for letting me know that the “globalist psychopaths” are putting my life in danger.

    I understand your cause, and I sympathize with what you and your fellow neighbors have been through. But I am disappointed at how you communicated your surely well intended thesis, because all the name calling (“communist-run Arizona Republic newspaper, is the newspaper literally run by communists?) and generalizations (“globalists decided to do what they do so well: steal what they wanted” Every single globalist steals?) and slippery slope fallacies (“we fight for our freedom and ultimately our survival”)
    Here is the definition of slippery slope fallacy via the Perdue Online Writing Lab https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/659/03/

    A conclusion based on the premise that if A happens, then eventually through a series of small steps, through B, C,…, X, Y, Z will happen, too, basically equating A and Z. So, if we don’t want Z to occur, A must not be allowed to occur either.
    Example:
    If we ban Hummers because they are bad for the environment eventually the government will ban all cars, so we should not ban Hummers.

    In this example, the author is equating banning Hummers with banning all cars, which is not the same thing.

    I am a 17 year old girl in high school. You have lost my trust as a credible source.

    Melissa and Sarah, while pressing good points, fail to see the Forest for the trees…yes, Virginia, there is a Globalist movement to remove YOU and almost everyone else from their way, and all you need to do is research the Georgia Stones. They, (The Globalists, and others like Feinstein and McCain, Soros, et al..), make their intentions very plain, engraved in Stone…and all you need to do is read their agenda. I thank Dave Hodges for his efforts to wake people up!
