Has Waning Western Influence Caused the Council on Foreign Relations to Lose Its Allegiance to the Western World?

Editor’s Note: This is a very thought-provoking piece, in my opinion, and deserves serious consideration. I doubt an editorial like this will be found in mainstream media. In fact, some will label it conspiracy theory. But it sounds rational to me. After all, some conspiracies actually do exist.

Stories don’t just appear in the news.
Editors decide what is newsworthy and the perspective that will be offered on a given topic. This is what we call a narrative, it’s how the facts are shaped for public consumption.
Sometimes, the narrative shifts in response to public outcry or a disaster. Other times, it’s more deliberate, a reflection of the official positions of elites and institutions with an interest in shaping public opinion to suit their ends.
As Henry Kissinger used to say, America doesn’t have friends, it has interests. The media is our chief tool of steering them.
In the wake of George Floyd’s death, American journalism has experienced a radical shift in perspective.
Journalists are suddenly questioning the need for police and calling them brutal enforcers of a racist regime.
Television shows and cartoons that feature police officers are being cancelled for glorifying violence.

There’s claims of widespread systemic racism in law enforcement along with narratives like the 1619 Project, which won a Pulitzer for claims about America being a nation founded on slavery that continues to today.
How the 1619 Project slandered America
Protests against police violence are happening in the midst of a pandemic and participants are being called peaceful protestors while they start fires and deliberately try to provoke response from public safety personnel – firefighters, EMTs and police have all been subject to attacks from the mob.

Academics, writers, and public leaders are being forced out of public life for questioning these views, or for not endorsing them full-throatedly, or for having said something 10 years ago that still happens to be online.
It all seems odd, this perception we must change our attitudes or face real physical threats to our safety.
As cities burn, “Silence is violence” is a common refrain, and (if you look carefully at the graffiti going up in LA, NYC and DC) you will also see this phrase: “Liberals get the bullet first.”
As we watch the purges happen and listen to the slogans, it’s useful to stand back and think about the superstructure that produces these expressions of rage and deep skepticism.
In 2016, Donald Trump was elected with the promise of fighting the Deep State. The Deep State felt threatened, and the public has lived with a constant state of political crisis ever since. These crises are manufactured by recognizable names in media and politics, and there’s a way to understand the recent shifts in journalism as an extension of this conflict.
The master narrative, right now, seems to be that all white men are evil, our system of government is irredeemably racist, and only anti-racism (read: Communism) can save people from the original sin of oppressing minorities. This view is being pushed in all major media outlets including – surprisingly – Fox News.
Conspicuously, it’s being pushed right in the middle of an election, while investigations into government corruption are going on, and during times of elevated tensions with China. The context matters, there’s a series of events and economic conditions that have lead us to this point. As we are being asked to examine ourselves and society at this time and at this place, finding good answers means it’s more important than ever to question what you think and hear.

Who Is The Deep State?

People mean different things when they say the Deep State.
For the purposes of this article, let’s take it to mean a group of people in government with the ability to carry out operations counter to the interests of the Administration. They can create false information, leak conversations to the press, kick off investigations without merit, frame officials, initiate impeachment processes without evidence, and more.
The media works together this group to hyperbolically criticize their targets while lionizing the Deep State actors themselves. Together, this alliance forms a syndicate whose real motivations and purpose, outside monopolizing power, are difficulty to understand.
Journalists at the Epoch Times took the time to document the relationships between bad actors in the Spygate conspiracy.
It’s big, it’s complex, and you’re not expected to take it all in at one time. But think about the names you do read and where you’ve heard them before. Was it about Russian election interference? Was it about a quid pro quo with Ukraine? Was it about a payments to a porn star? You know the name, but not many people know all of them.
The names on this list are the foot soldiers, the people working to carry out Deep State interests. Many of them were fired from government, often to howls of injustice from the Left. Some of them have gone on to jobs in media, people like Lisa Page.
The FBI raid Roger Stone’s home in Florida to arrest him. It is a gripping example of the police state.

It can certainly be lucrative. CNN won a Pulitzer for covering the midnight raid on Roger Stone’s house. Possibly this was her reward for the tipoff?

When you stop and think about it, one thing becomes clear. The names on this chart have each attempted to disrupt, obstruct and threaten members of the Executive Branch of the United States based on facts that don’t bear close scrutiny. The sheer volume of actions against the administration implies organization between its members, this could not be happening without a high level of coordination. It’s one of those truths that leaves you feeling invalidated, since it’s not allowed to be believed but so obvious to anyone with common sense.
That’s the Deep State. Americans want it gone, but it’s gotten worse than ever. Now it’s exposed and acting to protect itself, as power always does.

Who Sets The Narrative?

The Deep State could not exist without a complicit media. Maybe you’ve noticed President Trump has not had a good news day since 2016, even for developments that benefit all Americans. Maybe you’ve noticed stories about China interfering with the NBA and US games publishers fall out of the news cycle a little too quickly.
These things happen for a reason. Noam Chomsky famously said the press is owned by wealthy people with an interest in making sure only certain ideas are heard by the public. You will often hear journalists tell you they write anything they want, no one censors them. That may be true, but only insofar as they have already demonstrated a commitment to a certain worldview. The writers who generate controversy or hold unorthodox opinions never seem to make it in the news business.
There’s an organization called the Council on Foreign Relations. The odds are you’ve never heard of it. The heads of most major media organizations are members. Here’s a chart that describes the relationships that exist.
While this chart is a little dated and some of the names at the top have changed, no doubt their replacements are members as well.
CFR doesn’t just exist to report on foreign policy, it makes it.
In 1993, Washington Post editor Richard Harwood described the Council on Foreign Affairs as a group “whose members are the nearest thing we have to a ruling establishment in the United States.”
Every President since Reagan has been a member, along with most members of their cabinets, most leaders in the House and Senate, most leaders on Wall Street, many mainstream economists, along with prominent names in many other professions.
This is the nexus between government and media, as it has been since World War II. Every day, media outfits run by members reach more than 87% of the Western world, through televisions, newspapers, the Internet and other forms of information.
When I said every President since Reagan has been a member, that’s not actually true. President Trump is the single exception, and he’s overtly hostile to this framework that makes foreign policy and has been doing so since the late 40s. Somehow, he won in an election over one of their members. That’s never happened before and could be seen as a sign that something has changed.
Would an organization with this level of influence allow itself to be dismantled by a Disruptor in Chief? Hardly. Can this explain the persistent institutional narratives constantly broadcast across all US media?
An even better question: has waning Western influence caused the CFR to lose its allegiance to the Western World? Let’s come back to that one.

How Does This Explain The Changes in the Dominant Media Narrative?

Several things about George Floyd’s death are concerning. It’s terrible that he died and that doesn’t change just because of facts that came up in the post-mortem.
But every mainstream media outlet described his death in the same terms – as a horrible, senseless tragedy and a brutal police action that happens all too often in the United States. Which is not exactly controversial. The only place the media seems to differ is on whether or not this is evidence of systemic racism. Liberals seem to believe so, Conservatives not so much.
Assuming dominant media narratives exist and are used to achieve policy goals, a few things can be assumed.
First, the media response to events was a political action, it was meant to move the Overton window significantly on issues of race and social justice. No other death in police custody has received this kind of response.
Second, the differences in opinion about the presence of systemic racism may represent controlled opposition. During the riots, we saw politicians and community leaders bowing down to mobs in the street. This sent a signal of solidarity and orthodoxy – anyone who doesn’t agree is a bad person.
Third is the question of whether the video we’ve seen depicts what actually occurred. I accept the videos display events that happened in real life, this isn’t some CGI simulation. But is it possible the video doesn’t tell the whole story? Possibly. The autopsy revealed a few things to consider.
The toxicology report said George Floyd died with 11 ng/mL of Fentanyl and 5.6 ng/mL of Norfentanyl in his system. 11ng/mL would be a high amount and not necessarily enough to kill someone, you see about 20 ng/mL in most overdoses.
But Fentanyl metabolizes into Norfentanyl in the bloodstream, and it happens fast. Seeing both there indicates he recently used the drug in higher quantities than still existed in his system. Was it a lethal dose? Possibly. Fentanyl deaths can occur at anything above 15ng/mL and that much was present in the body.
Another question to consider is why hasn’t the police body cam footage been released? When other people have died during encounters with police, most families want the body cam footage released immediately. That hasn’t happened,  yet Minnesota AG Keith Ellison took over the prosecution, increased the charges on the officers involved and indicated there are no plans to release the footage.
One would assume there’s more to be learned from viewing the tapes that points to the guilt or innocence.
These are important questions when you consider whether the media is using a dominant narrative to pursue policy goals.
By increasing the charges against the officers involved, the State could be creating a situation where the officers are less likely to be found guilty. If the officers are instead acquitted, what happens to America’s faith in the criminal justice system?
By creating the perception no one can get justice from the courts, this leads to further calls for radical change along with protestors burning cities. We start to see calls to Defund the Courts/Defund Prisons and put the money into community programs instead.
One might expect more cities to burn. We should assume that’s a possible intent.

What Was Trump Doing When the Riots Started

If the Council on Foreign Relations has the kind of influence that has been claimed, it’s hard to understand why it would allow a narrative that all white men are evil, our country is racist, and only anti-racism can cure our systemic ills.
One possibility is this group decided to give up trying to set narratives. Social media has so fragmented the media landscape, it’s impossible to hide the truth so why bother. Just let people argue and see where things end up. Another possibility: the Council on Foreign Relations has become a corrupt institution. They are manufacturing political outcomes to serve the goals of a foreign power.
On May 29, 2020, just as the riots were kicking off, President Trump gave a speech in the Rose Garden. It’s available on YouTube.
He announced the US would be withdrawing from the WHO, Chinese students from military colleges would be prohibited from doing post-grad work in the US, and Hong Kong would lose its special status as an international hub if it proceeded with implementing a new security law.
This puts both countries into direct conflict on issues that affect most other countries on Earth.
While each of his announcements are important, that last one means more than the others. A lot more.
Removing Hong Kong’s special status cuts off China’s main financial conduit to the West. It’s the equivalent of backing a dump truck to someone’s front door, it means there’s not a good way in or out for capital. It’s also a loss of face for Chinese leadership, in a culture that does not take failure lightly.
Immediately afterwards, starting that night, cities across America found themselves under siege. Riots were breaking out, law enforcement was overwhelmed, and America saw footage of events we could not have imagined. More importantly, we heard the news media establish a dominant media narrative: these are peaceful protestors, not rioters, and they are fighting against systemic racism. The National Guard was called into many situations to stop the rioting.
New violence erupts in Hong Kong after protesters march in ...
But if you watched videos of the protest on social media, you got a very different story than you would have seen on the evening news.
Especially on the Front Lawn of the White House, protestors were militaristic and seeking to provoke violent confrontation. This video, in particular, stood out to people who speak Mandarin. They identified orders being given that sounded like those of Chinese troops.
If media members of the Center for Foreign Relations saw this and are controlling the dominant media narrative, it would be a strong signal they are not on the side of Americans and the West. Perhaps members have been bribed, perhaps they truly and honestly believe in the dominant media narrative. One thing is for sure: this was not a peaceful protest and there was a genuine threat on the lives of law enforcement. A use of force would have been justified, but the story you would hear afterwards would be very different from the truth.

What We Can Do?

This article is a hypothesis about the current state of affairs. It seeks explanations for why the dominant media narrative has changed since May 29, 2020.
Instead of talking about China, Spygate, Covid-19, nursing home deaths, unemployment, the stock market, and other matters of national concern, we’re talking about abolishing the police, racist white people, and how to purge our institutions of wrongthink.
An even better question: Has waning Western influence caused the CFR to lose its allegiance to the Western World? Let’s come back to that one.
As far as the allegiance of the CFR is concerned, consider this video featuring Richard Stengel, former Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs in the Obama State Department.
Listen to how he talks about his role as chief propagandist and the question he receives afterwards.
The whole video is worth a listen, but this part is supremely important for understanding the question:
When asked by an audience member whether the grand narrative includes Africa and the third world, Mr. Stengel changes the subject without a word in reply. Of course he did, the Council on Foreign Relations never considered whether the rest of the world really matters.
It sounds like now they are, and maybe they are overcompensating for past failures. One could imagine Mr. Stengel going up to the man at the end of the session to discuss how to get into the story.
It’s also possible its members have been offered incentives. They can retain their power and influence in exchange for transforming the US into a vassal state for China, complete with central authority, abolition of property rights, severe restrictions on speech, and no guns. The strange narrative we hear is simply the sound of money changing hands.
If the mainstream media orgs listed on the chart above are any indicator, this is the simplest explanation about where their loyalties lie.
They are businesspeople. Disney, Time Warner, ABC, Bloomberg and most of the rest make more money overseas then they do in the US.
Market economics would dictate that action for rational actors. Think about that picture of Jamie Diamond from JP Morgan kneeling in front of an open vault during the riots, you get the idea what that symbolizes.
Mending JPM chief drops into Mt. Kisco Chase branch
Instead of sound leadership and direction, we get Antifa. The new media darling that is a Communist organization.
When they say they are anti-fascist, that means they are directly opposed to liberal Democracy. When the organization started in the 1930s, is was not opposed to the Nazis, it was opposed to the Weimar Republic.
Their leaders were appointed by Soviets and they hated the idea that majorities could use the vote to oppress minority groups within a state. They held that the only means of stopping this problem was the establishment of an authoritarian regime. Most Antifa members left the organization by 1937, having gone underground or joined the Nazi party. After all, they were looking for authoritarianism and an end to liberal Democracy.
So this is what’s at stake.
In that video, Stengel appears with Kelly M. Greenhill and Joan Donovan, who speak about the difficulties of removing content they don’t like from the Internet and censoring people on platforms by creating mobs.
Both of them, very benignly, express a desire to use force to achieve their ends. They describe opponents on the Internet in the least favorable terms possible, and one gets the sense both of them have a with-me-or-against-me mentality when it comes to online affairs.
On the stage, one hears echoes of the past. They are professors and thought leaders, people charged with helping others reach their potential. It’s clear this is what they want and they’re not interested in anyone else’s point of view.
For right now, the most important thing you can do is build awareness. There is no kinetic battle to be won, this is about perception and sympathies.
Share this article, email it to your friends, discuss on social media (especially in groups), post it to every subreddit. Download Signal and tell your loved ones to use it, just in case this is heading somewhere. Watch for other indicators and share them on social media. Come up with hashtags to describe what you see and what you are fighting against.
I’ll be back to talk about what we do to mount an effective resistance. The good news is there will be cake.

    “The hand-to-hand combat lasted hours, on steep, jagged terrain, with iron bars, rocks and fists. Neither side carried guns. Most of the soldiers killed in the worst fighting between India and China in 60 years lost their footing or were knocked from the narrow Himalayan ridge, plunging to their deaths.

    India has reacted with shock and caution to the loss of at least 20 soldiers on its disputed border with China, with images of the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, burned in Indian cities.”

    Police: BLM Protester and Elderly Woman Found Dead, Suspect in Custody

    The bodies of a missing Black Lives Matter (BLM) protester and an elderly woman were found in Tallahassee, Florida, Saturday night.

    Police said the victims, 19-year-old Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau and 75-year-old Victoria Sims, were discovered alongside each other during a search over the weekend, according to the Miami Herald.

    Salau was last seen in Tallahassee after a protest on June 6, and Sims was reported missing on Thursday.

    “The suspect in this case has been identified as Aaron Glee Jr, 49. As stated earlier, he has been taken into custody,” the Tallahassee Police Department said in an update Monday.

    The department added that there was no further information to release at the time but said the investigation was ongoing.

    Arrest records from Orange County reportedly say Glee was arrested Sunday in Orlando on a warrant from Leon County regarding charges of homicide-felony murder, according to WCTV.

    “Before she disappeared, Salau had sent tweets about being attacked. The Tallahassee Community Action Committee organized a search party for her on Wednesday, June 10,” the article read.

    According to court documents, the suspect in this case was previously arrested on May 30. He was accused of aggravated battery causing bodily harm and was released on a $2,500 bond on June 1. Documents also say that Glee said he often helps homeless people.

    The probable cause affidavit from May 30 says a victim had offered Glee sexual favors in exchange for two bottles of liquor, but then she changed her mind. That’s when Glee attacked the victim. This victim was not one of the two people killed in the double homicide.

    n a statement Sunday, AARP Florida said it was deeply saddened by the loss of Sims, who had been a volunteer with the organization for a decade, according to WCTV.
    The statement read:
    Vicki worked tirelessly to improve the lives of others – as a dedicated advocate for older Americans; a committed volunteer for AARP, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Big Bend and other community causes; a devoted mother and grandmother; and a passionate, fully engaged citizen, helping our nation to achieve its highest ideals.
    “The AARP family of volunteers and staff has suffered a grievous loss,” the organization concluded.

    Father and Son Allegedly Caught Stabbing a 12-Year-Old Boy

    A Washington state father and 12-year-old son teamed up to stab another 12-year-old boy as part of an ongoing fight between the two boys, police said.

    Martinez D. Mitchell, 43, allegedly ran up to the victim and punched him before holding him while his 12-year-old son allegedly pummeled and stabbed him, the Everett Herald reported.

    The victim suffered stab wounds to his bicep, finger, and wrist in the alleged attack that took place at the Heatherwood Apartments on Wednesday.

    The 12-year-old victim was rushed to a Seattle hospital and is expected to survive, KOMO reported.

    Police contacted the two boys several times over the past few months, according to a police report obtained by the Herald.

    Both kids recently targeted each other with eggs, and police found remnants of a recent attack at both of their apartments on Wednesday. Police said a knife was also reportedly found at the scene.

    Witnesses told the police the latest squabble between the boys started over potential damage to a car.

    Police found Mitchell’s son at the apartment after the alleged attack, and he was taken into custody and booked into a juvenile detention center for investigation of first-degree assault.

    He was released Thursday and placed on house arrest.

    Mitchell fled the apartment before the cops arrived, but turned himself in late Friday. Police charged him with first-degree assault on a child.

    He remains in the Snohomish County Jail being held on $50,000 bond as of Monday, and also faces a parole violation, jail records show.

  • Even before Chauvin had Floyd down on the ground, Floyd was complaining that he could not breathe.
    Apparently, Floyd was suffering a cardiac arrest before he was put in the neck restraint.

    With one cardiac artery 90% blocked and another cardiac artery 70% blocked, Floyd was a cardiac arrest waiting to happen.

    Moreover, the convenience store clerk where Floyd tried to use counterfeit currency to buy cigarettes claimed that George Floyd was visibly intoxicated.

    • It’s a good thing that the cops gave him first aid and called for medical help right away then. He might have died if they hadn’t.

      • Yes, I’m sure the police did a complete physical on Floyd before putting their knees on his neck, back, and lower body for nearly nine minutes, as well as found and spoke in detail with the store clerk. LOL

        Here’s a tip: If you wouldn’t treat a dog like they treated Floyd, you should treat another human like that, either. LOL

        Even if Floyd was having a drug reaction and had “superman” strength, you don’t press your knee on the back of his neck for nearly nine minutes. LOL

        I’ve seen the COPS show where they pin down a suspect on his/her stomach to put cuffs on them, and the knee is place on the upper back, NOT the neck, for the few seconds it takes to place the cuffs on them. LOL

        There’s a technique on the COPS show I’ve been, where someone who has been arrested and has their hands handcuffed behind them tries to kick out the back windows has their ankles strapped together and is hog-tied to the handcuffs – why wasn’t this done with Floyd? LOL

        Also, why did they take down the COPS show in the first place? It showed proper law enforcement techniques, partly because the police knew they were being filmed and the show was edited, partly to remove any bad techniques. LOL

        It showed how many truly stupid people are walking the streets that police deal with every day. LOL

        As usual, the Libtards did the exact opposite of what they should have done – use the COPS show to educate the public and police on how to act during an interaction. LOL

        • Maybe someone should have reminded the officers that excessive force is wrong, and in front of cameras, is also stupid. LOL

          Someone like Hitler or Pontius Pilot. LOL

    • By the way, “Cardiac Arrest” means ‘heart stopped beating.’ That what it means and all it means, so if George was moving and talking after his heat stopped beating, he was superhuman and a medical first.

      Zombie Apocalypse?

    • Additionally, the employee of the convenience store where Floyd attempted to use counterfeit currency to buy cigarettes claimed that George Floyd was visibly intoxicated.

      I do not believe this statement very much, shadow. I saw an interview with Jovanni Thunstrom, the former boss of George Floyd, and he said that he spoke to the store manager who assured him that Floyd was NOT the man who tried to change the fake ticket. The accused had already left when the police arrived. In addition, they THE POLICE never bothered to ask him to identify Floyd, so basically they only concentrated on looking for a black man and, unfortunately for Floyd, he had a history, they concluded that they had the man they were looking for, the rest was, unfortunately, a combination of an anxiety and stress reaction on the part of Floyd before what was being presented towards him and the bad decision motivated by racism, discrimination and abuse of force by the police.

  • A few remarks. During the first and second Gulf War, CNN was the world’s leading medium in terms of coverage, providing images and commentary on events to virtually every other media and TV station in the world because everyone else had no direct access to direct information. The world was practically dependent on CNN’s coverage because it was also practically available worldwide. Many in the world recognized this. New international news channels have emerged, such as RT (Russia Today) and others. Today, CNN has got rid of its monopoly of international reporting and is under a lot of pressure on the international markets. The American narrative and control over and interpretation of events in news coverage has been lost. Even though the US administration and the Pentagon have used CNN for their purposes, CNN and the other major US broadcasters and media have benefited, but the credibility is gone for good and will never be the same again. This can probably be predicted. No one is dependent on the US media anymore. There are many alternatives and the Internet. CNN and other US media are now just one voice among many.

    • Because of the multiplicity of news outlets it’s quite easy to find one that will tell you mostly what you want to hear – be it CNN, RT, Fox or the BBC. I always consume news with the assumption that it will contain a degree of bias. That doesn’t mean that I always spot the bias, but I try to diversify the news I follow, to avoid becoming overly influenced into any one rigid viewpoint. I enjoy Breitbart as much as RT, but try to do my own reasoning which is not based on their view of the world.

      My degree of success in doing that is subject to doubt by myself.

  • Many political commentators and economists have been speaking of “An Asian Century” for some time.

    In shifting jobs and manufacturing to China, western countries have created the situation we currently see. No one made them do this. It was done in the pursuit of profit based on relatively short term goals, by fabulously wealthy individuals and corporations.

    These individuals were actively supported in their aims by western governments of all political flavours.

    So as we move into the “Asian Century,” we should be aware that it is we who have brought it about.

    The resultant economic gain by China has increased its global and economic power as a result of what WE did.

    Their power is waxing and ours is waning.

    And now we have to live with the effects of what we have done.

  • Great article. Had to read it twice. I’ve often prayed for discernment so reading this helps to better understand what’s going on beyond what the mainstream media portrays. This article makes more sense looking at the big picture. Hopefully, a lot of people will read it.

  • “By increasing the charges against the officers involved, the State could be creating a situation where the officers are less likely to be found guilty.”
    God rest Floyd’s criminal soul, but the cops were only doing what they were trained to do. I personally feel safer without a derranged beastly drug addict running around.

      • What are the relevant police instructions for applying this measure? Kneeling on the head or upper body may only be used until handcuffs are put on and the person is no longer resisting and cannot escape. Is there a time limit on how long this measure is allowed and when it is not? Or is it deliberately imprecise in order to give the policemen a large margin of discretion?

        • There are no universal police instructions, and they are supposed to use their discretion. LOL

          Most police use it wisely, some don’t. LOL

          Some don’t even care if they’re being filmed the entire time they are overstepping their discretion to use the minimum force necessary to gain control of a situation, which is normally defined as one level above what the opposition is providing. LOL

        Trump to sign executive order on police reform Tuesday

        The death of Floyd, an unarmed Black man who died when a white officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes during an arrest, sparked a protest movement against police brutality and structural racism that has drawn crowds of thousands of demonstrators across the country for multiple weeks

        Scott, why do you make the more than eight minutes CNBC writes about, almost nine minutes? Did you stop time because the whole scene was filmed? Why not time it to the second when every second or minute makes a difference?

        • Because various media reports, as well as various events, such as the Congresspeople kneeling, moments of silence at the many funeral services for Floyd, etc., have often lasted for the eight minutes and 46 seconds that Floyd was recorded to have been pinned down by his neck by the former officer’s knee. LOL

          Scott thinks 8:46 is closer to almost nine minutes than over eight minutes. LOL

          Actually, it is thought Floyd was already dead after about 5-6 minutes, so the last 3-4 minutes didn’t matter. LOL

  • Our new Masters at Anti-Fa and BLM have decided that Winston Churchill is not “woke” enough for our new age.
    In a Google gallery of World War 2 leaders Churchill’s photo has been removed but mass murders Hitler and Stalin are still honorable enough to have their photos included.

    Churchill Image Disappears from Google Search Results, Hitler and Stalin Still Present

    The picture of Sir Winston Churchill disappeared from Google search results as the wartime British prime minister became a target for Black Lives Matter supporters amid an ongoing assault on British heritage and history.

    A Google search for the phrase “British Prime Ministers” yielded picture results for other former national leaders, yet the wartime premier’s picture was replaced with a black box avatar.

    Searches for the phrases “Second World War leaders”, “World War 2 generals”, and so on also failed to display a picture of Churchill — although the likes of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Josef Stalin remained.

    Churchill’s wartime premiership was also erased, with results only showing him as having been prime minister from 1951 to 1955 — his second term in office — although Google said this issue was “not specific” to him.

    The seeming memory-holing of Churchill, whose statue in London has been repeatedly vandalised at BLM protests, caused an international backlash, with U.S. congressman Devin Nunes saying: “Had to check this for myself… according to Google all pics of Churchill have been wiped from the earth.”

    On July 7th, Google announced their support for the Black Lives Matter movement, going on to call for “racial justice now” on their official Twitter account.

    The tech giant has recently come under fire over instances of alleged political bias, for example by refusing to display homepage “doodles” for Memorial Day and the anniversary of D-Day but choosing to celebrate Yuri Kochiyama, a “human rights” activist who expressed admiration for radical Islamic terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden.

    A request to Google for information on the status of Churchill’s picture asked: “The images on the search results are taken from Wikipedia, it’s not clear to me why this would break in only the UK and the US. It’s especially interesting given the current controversy around Churchill in our countries. Even more interesting is that pictures of Hitler, Stalin and Mao are shown with no issues.”

    “Can you please reinstate Churchill’s picture, and if not, can you explain why you won’t?” it concluded.

    The wartime prime minister has recently become a target for Black Lives Matter supporters over his alleged racism, despite his being widely credited with playing a central role in defeating the National Socialists during the Second World War.

    Following repeated acts of vandalism against his statue in Parliament Square in London, the leftist mayor of the city, Sadiq Khan, decided to imprison the monument to the British wartime leader in a grey box, supposedly in order to protect it — effectively erasing him from public view.

    On Saturday, Sir Nicholas Soames, a former Conservative parliamentarian and Churchill’s grandson, said that the campaign against his grandfather was a sign that Britain has lost its moral compass.

    “I find it extraordinary that millions and millions of people all over the world who look up to Britain will be astonished that a statue of Churchill and the Cenotaph, our national war memorial, could have been defaced in this disgusting way,” Soames told The Telegraph.

    UPDATE: Churchill’s image has now been restored. As of the time of writing he is still only listed as having been Prime Minister from 1951-1955.


    • There are lots of places that also list Churchill being the Prime Minister from 1940-1945. LOL


  • Absolutely fascinating article, and I agree with every single point–almost.

    1.The deep state are bureaucrats. They are toxic. Working for the state is toxic. Economically, they are consumers and produce nothing. Financially, they are parasites who have been allowed to unionize.

    NY has been devoured by them, and their power is mentioned no where in print.

    2. They own Cuomo. He even called them “essential”.

    3. And they are blatantly left, hence the China connection.

    4. China wants Biden bad. They are balls deep up his ass (sorry).

    5. Immigration. The Salt Act. Impeachment.

    Trump stopped the left in its tracks.


    a. I don’t care what drugs George Floyd had in his system, and yeah, I am drawing conclusions.

    b. They police DO need to be exposed. They have turned into pesty revenue agents stopping you for everything. Jaywalking. Lights on cameras. On and on BULLSHIT worth defunding.

    That aside:

    Trump should have been on tv every night for half an hour uniting us.

    He wasn’t.

    • Trump would have been criticized if he was on TV every night, just like he was during the beer virus. LOL

      Besides, that’s not his style when it comes to murders, he lets his actions talk louder than words. LOL
