What spell am I talking about?  Only the one we have been laboring under for decades if not generations.

I’m talking about the mainstream media and the iron grip it has had over the minds of the American people for far too long.

The spell was broken last Thursday, during the debacle –I mean debate–that took place between President Biden and President Trump at CNN headquarters in Atlanta.  Trump looked presidential while Biden looked addled and (dare I say it?) demented.

There’s no other way to put it.  Even the mandarins who populate the mainstream media, the punditocracy, men and women who have been running interference for Biden for the last three years, couldn’t bring themselves to defend his performance.  It was that bad.

The Emperor had no clothes and even though we’ve known it for years, they –the eunuchs who get paid to be sycophants–had to finally admit it.  The American people saw it in all its putrescence.  Worse, the entire world saw it as well.  Speaking as an American, I felt ashamed; it was as if a stranger came over for dinner and instead saw a particularly ugly family squabble. What was seen, cannot be unseen.

The gloss of “American exceptionalism” has been finally put to rest as far as our allies are concerned, at least the smarter ones.  The wholly corrupted vassals in Western Europe (i.e. Mitsotakis, Patriarch Bartholomew, Zelensky) will be the last to wake up. That goes double for our adversaries as well.  In reality, given the fact that our popular culture has been so forcefully degradedfor so long thanks to our wokeism, it was only a matter of time.

Well, Joe Biden, the “leader of the free world,” put the final nail in the coffin of our supposed exceptionalism.  (That may be a silver lining; I wonder what Vladimir Putin and Xi Jingpen are thinking right now?)

We can write more about our culture and its impact on foreign policy in the future. For now, I want to talk about the mainstream media:  we saw it die in real time.

And as far as I’m concerned, that’s a good thing.

Why?  Because we have been incessantly lied to by the “free press” for decades, ever since the bombing of the USS Maine back in 1898.  We now have good evidence that people close to Franklin Roosevelt knew in advance that a Japanese fleet was going to attack us at Pearl Harbor.  The Gulf of Tonkin incendent in 1965 and the bombing of the USS Liberty by the Israelis in 1967 were all orchestrated by Lyndon Baines Johnson and his cronies. This was all with thea cquiescence of the media.

We could go on:  the weapons of mass destruction which Saddam Hussein had in storage was another, more recent, lie that was foisted upon us.  As was the lethality of the corona virus.  As far as the vaccine was concerned, it was safe, effective and would prevent further transmission.  No matter what the “respectable” media told us, none of this was true.

Thanks to Operation Mockingbird, it was they who crafted the media narratives which sent tens of thousands of young American men to die on foreign shores.  It was also  Mockingbird which coined the phrase “conspiracy theory” in 1966, to stigmatize those people who did not accept the fndings of the Warren Commission.

All things considered, they did their job all too well.  Nobody wants to be called a “conspiracy theorist,” even when they’re on to the truth of the matter.

But it all came crashing down in glorious TechnicolorTM last Thursday. In real time, you could see the talking heads of CNN and MSNBC explode.  They were pallid and slack-jawed, it was as if they saw the same trainwreck that we were seeing.  That’s because they were, they didn’t have the time to massage it for us plebs.

You could see the wheels turning in their brains saying “no more, I can’t do this.”  Yes, they have been media whores all their lives, with their cushy jobs and fat paychecks.  And (speaking of whores), they knew how to massage the truth for public consumption.  Think of the Belgian babies who were bayoneted by German troops in 1914 (or the Kuwaiti babies that were bayoneted in their incubators by Iraqi soldiers in 1991).  More recently, we were told that forty Israeli babies were beheaded on October 7.  All lies.

They didn’t have to lie by commission, they could do it by omission as well.  Failing that, they could frame the story.  Things like,  “Former President Trump, a convicted felon, said about his golf swing…” or “the Supreme Court negatively impacted women’s ‘health’ when it overturned Roe v Wade.”

Something akin to “when did you stop beating your wife?”

Those days are gone.  The spell has been broken.  Finally.  Now the rest of us have seen that the Emperor is naked.  And not a moment too soon.


  1. Everyone needs to call their Congressman. The time is now. Joe Biden has to get off the throne. He is a liability to the nation.
