I don’t watch mainstream news. If I want to know what’s up with the Kardashians (I don’t), I could always check SnapChat or Twitter, or whatever, because that’s what “Social” media is for. But when I want the news, I go to a “News” outlet, and nowadays, that means getting as far from the Mainstream News channels as I possibly can. I even find myself wondering if the average person remembers what true news sounds like.
You’ve probably all heard by now about the protests going on around the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, but if you’ve heard about it from the regular sources, such as Fox, CNN, ABC, CBS, and the rest of the usual nere-do-wells, I dare say you’ve most likely gotten a somewhat slanted version of the story. You know, where the Big Oil company is trying their best to help the country by investing in a major project on private land, and is currently being harassed in their efforts by a bunch of lazy, no-good, environmental activists, who would like to see your country revert to the stone age. These uneducated protestors keep talking nonsense about how this state-of-the-art pipeline might actually spring a leak and contaminate the lake the oil company is planning to run it under, and the Missouri River which it is connected to. The oil company, however, assures you all, that the idea of a leak, is nearly inconceivable in the first place, and if it were to happen at all, it would be immediately contained, and so quickly and thoroughly cleaned up, that you would be hard-pressed to even prove it had ever happened.
That’s basically the version the mainstream news would have you believe.
Below, I have linked to a 13 or 14-minute episode of Jordan Cheriton, the investigative reporter from TYT Politics, interviewing John Bolenbaugh, “a whisteblower who exposed the oil industry’s cover up of major oil spills throughout the United States”. They’re discussing the very real possibility of a leak, or leaks, and what truly happens (or has happened in the past) in the event of that occurrence, or occurrences. If you can manage to watch even the first 2 or 3-mins. of this video, I’m pretty certain, that like myself, you will be so hooked by the quality of the information that you will be receiving (actual news coverage), that you will be more than willing to watch the whole thing. The only problem I can foresee is that you may never feel quite the same watching your regular news programs ever again. But, like always on my page, I only ask that you judge for yourself.
So there you go. Pretty frightening isn’t it. But it doesn’t have to be. If we talk about it, and get others talking about it, then better solutions can be found, and implemented. Just making money, and making it the fastest way possible, cannot be good enough any longer. The election the people of the United States just held showed one thing more clearly than anything else. It showed people wanted a change, and they wanted it so bad, they were even willing to vote for Donald Trump. So just remember, those same establishment Democrats that couldn’t even beat Mr. Trump are the same people behind all these big oil pipelines, and their time really is over. Maybe it’s time they see the writing on the wall? Just asking.
