Because so many people were shocked to find out that Brian Williams’ laughable lie was “kept secret” for so long I want to spend a little time to explain how the underlying system is ACTUALLY put together.
I have already explained in my previous post about Mistake-gate that it is easy to keep a secret and naive to believe that “everyone would know”. In fact the VERY concept that it is “impossible to keep a secret, and that “everyone would know” is just another meme they spread. Having people believe and knee jerk react that “everyone would know” makes it that much easier to keep the secrets, because people don’t believe the secrets when they do start to leak out. Why? Well because everyone would already HAVE KNOWN because it would have already have been “widely reported”. lol.
The next most important thing to come out of Mistake-gate with the honorable Mr. Brian Williams is that any “competition” in the media is just part of the “Truman Show” they have created for you to live in and enjoy! lol Remember it’s because they care about you.
The major players are all ON THE SAME TEAM. FOX, CBS, NBC, CNN all the SAME. They are each there just to provide an illusion that something is happening, namely, reporting and checks and balances to the system, that is in fact just a charade.
People don’t understand that almost all media comes from the same six sources. That’s consolidated from 50 companies back in 1983. Take a look at this infographic. Is this diverse? Is this the result of free markets?
This is just TV of course. There is so much more inter-connectedness to the entire charade that allows things to always just coincidentally “behave” the way they do. It is all about an illusion of freedom and competition, that doesn’t exist. Think about it, with a group this small how easy is it to get “black-balled” out of what appears to be a “large” and diverse industry? If you don’t play along you can be finished quite quickly?
So do you see how TV and TV news is really just one giant incestuous bunch of liars? It isn’t hard to keep them quiet. It is EASY. Of course if any of this actually happened, “everyone would know”.
None of this is the result of FREE MARKETS. THIS IS ALL THE RESULT OF USING THE FORCE OF GOVERNMENT. Those very few who basically control all the assets control the competition with their version of “Vinny the enforcer”, government.
Oxfam International, a poverty fighting organization, made news at the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier this year with its report that the world’s 85 richest people own assets with the same value as those owned by the poorer half of the world’s population, or 3.5 billion people (including children). Both groups have $US 1.7 trillion. That’s $20 billion on average if you are in the first group, and $486 if you are in the second group. Rest of story here.
Do you see this? This is the reality. 85 people have as much as HALF THE WORLD. And THIS IS the REPORTED NUMBER. It is in all likelihood a laughable UNDERSTATEMENT of how concentrated the wealth actually is in the world. Many super rich families don’t even make the “list” of “wealthiest” people, because they want a low profile.
The very few at the top have it all. They did not get it by playing by the rules you play by. THEY ARE CHEATERS, lol. How hard is it to win if you cheat? It isn’t complicated to see that these few people own governments and media and everything else. And they use those entities for their benefit. It is not crazy, it is COMMON SENSE, lol.
Here’s the list. Notice how many people you have never heard of and notice the names NOT on there that you do know, like Rockefeller and Rothschild and decide for yourself whether you believe this “public list” actually represents the true state of affairs.

If you think the world operates like they taught you in school then you might want to consult one Mr. Rodney Dangerfield and his “testimony” in the movie “Back to School” when addressing this issue with his business professor. Specifically when he says, “Oh you left a lot of stuff out.” lol
These super rich people manipulate the entire game through access to the counterfeiting operation known as Central Banking. You create “problems” with the help of government in an industry, like a “licensing issue” in the media industry, and then buy up the competition on the cheap.
This giant scam was commonly known as a “roll up” in the 80’s and 90’s etc. Every type of “industry” especially media types became subject to this giant scam. The whole thing was of course presented to the masses as the operation of “brilliant individuals” in the “free markets” “honing competition” and other such nonsense. They always use the same playbook. lol
But it isn’t just a licensing “problem” that can come up when dealing with the government. Tax issues, immigration, audits, discrimination and on and on. Importing, exporting, oversight and “anti-trust” are also just other cover stories operated by our friends down at government to protect those they want protected. What does it take for people to see this?
The government is the “muscle” for the very rich who control all of the large companies and virtually everything else. It makes sure the competition is eliminated or controlled.
It is governments who allow huge multi-national corporations to operate all over and to dominate every nook and cranny of our lives and system. The supreme court has declared that these entities are “people”. Yes the great protector of your freedoms, the court. lol
These corporations are ostensibly “public” but the reality is that they are controlled by the board and large blocks of stock owned by many proxy entities with proxy voting and blind trusts and on and on the labyrinth of GOVERNMENT PROTECTION IN THE FORM OF LAWS AND RULES goes covering their trail and making it impossible for the masses to sort out who is REALLY pulling the strings. Get it yet?
The absurd concentration of wealth has been AN OPEN SECRET for a long time. It is an “open secret”, just like Mr. Brian Williams’ honorable yet unfortunate “mistake” was well known in that industry. lol Supreme court Justice Brandeis wrote a whole book about the concentration of wealth a hundred years ago. Go read it. It was the subject of huge hearings in Congress. What came of it? …… do you hear that? I think that’s the sound of “crickets”? That’s what came of it. ZERO. ZIP. NADA. Government will never “get to the bottom of it” because one of its main purposes is to facilitate and COVER IT ALL UP. lol
There was a study completed in 2007 in Zurich. It was the most extensive ever undertaken to try and understand the interlocking nature of of large companies. Looking at boards and holdings etc. Trying to dig down to figure out how much control was really concentrated in how many people or companies. Get it? Every heard of it? lol Of course not. Here are some of it’s findings.
“Reality is so complex, we must move away from dogma, whether it’s conspiracy theories or free-market,” says James Glattfelder. “Our analysis is reality-based.”
Previous studies have found that a few TNCs own large chunks of the world’s economy, but they included only a limited number of companies and omitted indirect ownerships, so could not say how this affected the global economy – whether it made it more or less stable, for instance.
The Zurich team can. From Orbis 2007, a database listing 37 million companies and investors worldwide, they pulled out all 43,060 TNCs and the share ownerships linking them. Then they constructed a model of which companies controlled others through shareholding networks, coupled with each company’s operating revenues, to map the structure of economic power.
The work, to be published in PLoS One, revealed a core of 1318 companies with interlocking ownerships (see image). Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20. What’s more, although they represented 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1318 appeared to collectively own through their shares the majority of the world’s large blue chip and manufacturing firms – the “real” economy – representing a further 60 per cent of global revenues.
When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies – all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity – that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. “In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network,” says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group. Story here.
So less than 1% of the companies controlled 40% of the entire GLOBAL NETWORK! And this is what they could FIND OUT. There are many things you can NEVER find out, like agreements that would be ILLEGAL and therefore secret. Then you have family associations, and secret societies like Skull & Bones, where Bush and Kerry are both members. (so are they actual rivals, or is that all just part of a larger con? see what I mean?) Then you have inter-married families, friendships, blind trusts, NGO information, hidden accounts, and things that are not even on ANY record. Just like the royal families used to inter-marry to create alliances the super rich families today do the same thing. Of course believing any of this is conspiracy kookery. Why? well if that was really happening, then “everyone would know”.
Further this concentration does not take into account the massive involvement of Intelligence communities in every aspect of the corporate world. READ GOVERNMENT.
There are something called Deep cover agents. They can work their entire careers ostensibly as “private” individuals and yet have been a CIA or other intelligence service agent their whole career. They appear to be something they are NOT their whole careers! And this is just the tip of the iceberg. The full extent and interconnectedness is only limited by the amount of time you care to spend looking into it.
There are always so many layers to the lies it is hard to sort them out. Colonel Prouty pointed this out in his book the Secret Team more than 40 years ago. And so have many others. But still people don’t believe because it takes time to UNlearn and people are lazy. lol They actually PREFER to live in a dreamland and search for pics of Kim K’s wardrobe “slips”. And believe me, your overseers are more than happy to oblige with the distractions.
Think about it, the FCC licenses and thereby controls most media in this country. And that is just ONE agency of government control over the media. What in the WORLD are we doing having the GOVERNMENT OVERSEE THE MEDIA in this country?? How do the ones who are supposed to be BEING WATCHED get to oversee the supposed “Watchers”?? lol it is totally backward, yet the people demand more government they are so hopelessly brainwashed.
Oh and don’t believe for a second that this concentration is limited to media. Here’s another chart showing the concentration of how a small handful of companies control nearly everything you buy and eat. If you want more here is the story.
So do you see? It is not just the media. It is all an illusion of competition. The same people sell you Tide or All. It is a game, nothing more. The money goes into the same hands at the end.
I’m going to give you another info graphic next. This one is a more extensive view of the MEDIA. Look it over and once you understand what is in it you will understand why it is so easy for them to just crank up the “Wurlitzer” and dump propaganda on you from every direction. And remember, none of this even includes the monopoly on the EDUCATION system that the government runs. So the brainwashing is so extensive that people just don’t see it.
NOTE: This infographic is not totally up to date, but it is very close. GE does not own NBC (or Comcast or any media) anymore. So that 6th company is now Comcast. And Time Warner doesn’t own AOL, so Huffington Post isn’t affiliated with them.
Do you see now? It’s easy to keep secrets. The control is quite complete already.
One thing I have found from practicing law for so long. No matter how much information you give to people, most people just won’t believe or won’t care. And that is fine. They are welcome to keep living in the Truman Show and to continue to believe that “everyone would know” and all the other silly naive ideas they have in their minds.
People, for the most part just don’t care. They are content to drink beer, hang out and hope to “get a good job” and to try and get laid. That is the reality. Make friends with it. lol.
Think about it. Just making it to the end of this article means you are UNUSUAL. lol. Most people won’t even bother to read an article like this, and definitely not to the end. And an even smaller number will take the time to actually look at the information and links, and still even fewer will bother to buy and READ a book or two or do some of their own nosing around. So the consolidation of control will continue by our rich cheating friends at the top. lol
And that is reality. You have to live in reality. But that doesn’t mean it is a reality without hope. You can make your way through the maze. And you can still laugh and enjoy. And we can share it together here. I hope you have a better idea of how truly laughable the disconnect is between what you are taught and what the world actually is.
The few have control of it all. To the extent they don’t control you or anyone else on some business deal, it is only because they have CHOSEN not to. Nothing more. lol.
So I will leave you with Mr. Rodney Dangerfield’s insight in to the business world. lol enjoy.
That’s all for now my brainwashed Brethren. Take care, don’t be down, live in the light and tell someone about the truth about the law.
