Who or What Can You Believe?
Some say capitalism is the only system of economics that works for everyone and that programs like UBI aren't necessary to maintain it, and yet...
Many workers have been told that "China is stealing your jobs!" And then there's this:
Democrats accused Trump's administration of being full of corporate grifters. https://www.citizen.org/article/corporatecabinet/
Yet Biden's administration discloses that it's full of former corporate lobbyists as well. https://www.dailyposter.com/p/biden-aides-disclose-their-corporate
The CDC says six feet apart is the minimum safe distance to keep in order to prevent transmitting the coronavirus. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html
Yet school districts across the nation now say it's safe for students' desks to be three feet apart--so their parents can return to work. https://nbc24.com/newsletter-daily/cdc-changes-school-guidance-allowing-desks-to-be-closer-03-19-2021-150920969
V.P. Kamala Harris says she is all for police reform, and yet her history as an Attorney General says otherwise: https://www.dailyposter.com/p/kamala-harris-police-accountability
And while V.P. Kamala Harris readily admits to smoking pot, Biden's White House fires their staffers for marijuana use. https://www.thedailybeast.com/biden-white-house-sandbags-staffers-sidelines-dozens-for-pot-use
HR-1 or the "For the People Act" promises some needed voting reforms, yet at the same time it will allow billionaires to flood unrestricted Dark Money into the campaign coffers of the Democrats and Republicans, further weakening what remains of our democracy. https://continuousrev.blogspot.com/2021/03/poison-pill-politics.html
In February, the Biden administration submitted a bill to Congress, the US Citizenship Act of 2021, stating it would "reinstate the United States' commitment to human rights," and yet it reopened the very same Trump-era children "overflow facilities" to lock up immigrant children within a month. https://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/68402-immigration-reopening-mass-influx-facilities-goes-against-biden-administration-promises
❌ $2000 relief checks— tr☆pp (@Iawnhater) March 19, 2021
❌ $15/hr minimum wage
❌ elimination of student debt
❌ halting of deportations from day 1
❌ decriminalization of marijuana
✅ 127,457 deportations
✅ 30% increase in jailed migrant children
All student loan debt hasn't been cancelled as promised by Biden during the presidential campaign.
We didn't realize the $2000 stimulus check as promised in January by Biden and Harris while campaigning in the Georgia special election.
Medicare For All has yet to be enacted in spite of promises made along the campaign trail.
Enacting a $15 an hour minimum wage seems to be a thing of the past for Dems--no matter if they claimed to support it in 2020.
Police officers and others are still getting away with murder of minorities.
And there are still kids in cages.
Who or what can you believe?
We could go on and on, but I think you get the picture. You can only believe in yourself. Any conflicting information you read and hear in the mainstream media only provides further proof that they're in on the con.
The mainstream media will take the contradictions inadvertently revealed by those in power and manufacture them into a cover story full of misdirection and half-truths--Russia!--rather than actual facts. These spin doctors are so good at what they do that they will make you question your own memory and your own sanity if you let them.
The solution? Cut back or stop altogether watching and reading mainstream media outlets. Stop allowing their talking heads to fill yours with their nonsense. It's only going to give you a headache.
What can you do to find out what's really happening in the world? Find as many independent media outlets as you can broadcasting a news story and learn to trust your instincts when comparing sources. Who makes money if you follow this particular media outlet's lead? And if something coming out of the mouth of a politician or an extremely well-paid pundit sounds unbelievable or is later proven false, don't hesitate to refute them or boycott them.
There's no reason for anyone to put up with liars, no matter how apparently high ranking or famous they are. Always insist on integrity. If more of us did this more often, what a wonderful world this would be.
