The job of the press is to inform the American public. That means all of us, left and right, rich and poor, young and old. Sadly, that hasn’t been the case for a decade or more. At this point, the choices made by media today reflect the ambitions and perspectives of a very small part of the population – a privileged elite detached from, and too often hostile to, the vast majority of Americans. Why then, do we call it the “mainstream media” if it doesn’t represent the American mainstream?
In this week’s continuing series on the media’s loss of trust by Americans due to its peddling of propaganda in collusion with Big Tech and Big Government, we explore the media’s attempt to coerce our common-sense opinions to conform with the dangerous ideas of a destructive elite that it caters to.
If you’re like us, you’ve found yourself watching some newscast or reading a story and questioning its value and authenticity. You find yourself asking: Will this information help me keep my family safe? Will it help me make decisions about issues important to our community or country? Does it inspire me to reach out and help others?
More often than not, the answer is a resounding NO.
The constant drumbeat of same-same dangerous narratives across legacy press outlets – the MSM – are designed to break our peace and divide us further. None of the ideas like sterilizing children through medications and surgeries (a gruesome and unholy undertaking) as “gender-affirming” care are held by most Americans, none of them are mainstream. Those days are gone.
Today, the media’s intention is clear as one of our readers pointed out in a recent survey: They have proven repeatedly over the last 10 to 15 years that they are willing to report on whatever is fed to them by the political party in control of their networks. Whether it’s foreign or domestic, they’ve participated in coverups, withholding crucial information from the American people regarding actual events, fear mongering, misrepresentation, and promoting ideas that are detrimental to the success of our country. They might as well be a state-run media like the CCP or Russia. There is no integrity.
What millions of Americans are doing to stop the madness caused by a wayward press catering to a select elite is liberating themselves from the MSM’s false reality, a world scored by anger, hatred, and fear. And that’s a good thing. We at America’s Future urge you now more than ever to break free of the madhouse designed by a media that’s anything but “mainstream.”
Thank you for taking our surveys on our feature series about the collapse of the media. Thousands have commented, offering smart, insightful thoughts. Please participate in this week’s survey and share your opinion on the demise of the press across America. Watch America’s Mondays With Mary every Monday at 9 AM when America’s Future Executive Director, Mary O’Neill, reports on responses offered by our survey takers.
Lesson Learned From Our Founders
Our country faces the most consequential of times in all of U.S. history. The severe overreach of our government threatens our freedom and liberties. Decisions made today will shape our lives and the lives of future generations for centuries to come.
America’s Future Chair, General Michael Flynn, has repeatedly said that “local action equals national impact.” This is an action phrase meant to purposely cause citizens to think about how each American can actively participate in the fabric of our society.
He stresses to get involved right at home in your own communities and take the time to learn about all aspects of the people and processes running your local government. Find the way to help with cleaning up voter registration rolls or supporting local canvassing efforts or joining a political campaign whose ideas you support.
Most importantly, VOTE! Do not be distracted, he urges. Instead, stay focused. Get your friends and neighbors to vote on this election day, November 8. A lesson learned from our Founding Fathers is that serious times demand citizen participation.
Stay informed. Get involved and never quit the fight for freedom.
On August 11, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued another round of recommendations and policy statements“for minimizing the impact of COVID-19.” This new guidance indicates CDC’s stronghold on American citizens is gone. Once drunk on power, the agency is now sobering up.
Recent court rulings and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) disclosures demonstrate COVID-19 government policies may have been politically motivated all along. Court rulings illustrate that tactics to control and threaten the American public, their livelihoods, their children’s education and our God-given rights of individual freedoms are clear examples of unconstitutional government overreach and abuses of power. Organizations like Judicial Watch have exposed the hypocrisy and insincerity of public health “experts” and government bureaucrats who consistently say one thing to the American people, but say another thing in emails and memos they think will go unpublished.
Facts are facts: (1) Travel restrictions and mask/vaccine mandates never applied to the millions of illegal aliens flooding our southern border; (2) The United States, nearly entirely through the National Institutes of Health (NIH), contributed $27 million of taxpayer money to help fund China’s scientific experiments and studies between 2010 and 2020; (3) Litigants all over the country are suing (and often prevailing by judgment or settlement) to enjoin further implementation of irrational and destructive rules forced on our first responders, healthcare heroes and all sorts of other Americans who found themselves jobless for having not consented to a novel vaccine being pumped into their veins.
Just this week, a $10.3 million settlement was reached in a class action lawsuit brought by Liberty Counsel on behalf of healthcare heroes against their employer, NorthShore University Health System (Northshore). The healthcare workers filed the lawsuit seeking injunctive relief and money damages relative to Northshore’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. The lawsuit stated that Northshore denied “all or virtually all” of employee religious exemption requests. And in doing so, plaintiffs were faced with a decision to either receive the COVID-19 vaccination or be terminated from Northshore.
Liberty Counsel Vice President of Legal Affairs and Chief Litigation Counsel in the Northshore case, Horatio G. Mihet explained, “This settlement should also serve as a strong warning to employers across the nation that they cannot refuse to accommodate those with sincere religious objections to forced vaccination mandates.”
We, at America’s Future, applaud Liberty Counsel for standing up for our First Amendment rights. The incoherent and often politically-motivated, flip-flopping messaging by government and its agencies must stop. Americans demand honesty, transparency and accountability from our government and its officials.
