- How Michael Bloomberg’s ‘Journalists’ Propagandize for More U.S. Aggressions

This will be exposing typical U.S.-regime propaganda. That’s propaganda favoring U.S. imperialism, which actually violates the intentions of America’s Founders, and the spirit of the U.S. Constitution.
The U.S. regime’s propaganda doesn’t come from the Government directly, but instead from the 607 billionaires who control the regime, via their corrupt control over the successful politicians (in both Parties), financing their careers, and by their owning (and otherwise controlling) the regime’s ‘news’-media, which are privately owned and which carry the same propaganda as the Government’s ‘publicly owned’ ‘news’-media do — all of America’s mainstream ‘news’-media being in favor of the U.S. Government’s sanctioning (economic-blockading) and trying to overthrow by means of coup or sometimes outright invasion, countries (such as Iraq, Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Libya, etc.) that had never invaded, nor even threatened to invade, the United States. U.S. imperialism is commonly called “neoconservatism,” but it is basically the same as other imperialistic regimes throughout history — it is controlled by the given invading nation’s aristocracy, which deceives in its propaganda regarding the reasons why “regime change” is supposedly needed in the targeted countries. By means of these lies, the nation’s public are made willing to fund these invasions in their taxes and can even think that it is their patriotic duty, instead of being a massively criminal enterprise that they’ve been fooled into supporting with their dollars and sometimes with their very bodies.
First here will be essential historical background, in order for a reader to be able to understand typical U.S.-and-allied propaganda; and, then, will come a typical example which displays the results of that history and which thereby exposes the crucially implicit lies in that propaganda, and which cause it to be effective propaganda — the sort of deceits that fool most of the public into favoring these invasions and other international aggressions, which aggressions routinely produce mass-murders, benefitting only the aggressor-nation’s aristocracy and the aristocracies that are allied with them. This is the way that wealth in the U.S. has come to be so extremely narrowly held, so that, for example, a January 2018 study done for Deutsche Bank, “US Income and Wealth Inequality”, reported (p. 9) that “US: Top 0.1% owns as many assets as the bottom 90%”, and (p. 11) that, out of all the 34 OECD nations, America has the most unequal incomes — the most extreme inequality, of them all. The billionaires and their agents say that this is okay because, as the wealthy economist Lawrence Summers once put it, “we should accept inequality of results, recognizing that those who earn more are in a better position to contribute more to support society.” (In other words: poor people are less worthy than rich people are. Rich people tend to believe that, and to reward economists such as Summer for teaching that. It’s essential to their propaganda — and they fool especially themselves into believing it.)
