MSM Not So Intelligent
By Tom Niewulis (The Younger)
Thomas Sowell: “Intellect is not wisdom… Wisdom is the fulfillment of the ancient admonition, “With all your getting, get understanding.” … George Orwell said that some ideas are so foolish that only an intellectual could believe them, for no ordinary man could be such a fool.”
Over the last month in particular I’ve watched the White House Press Briefings and have reaffirmed a twenty-year belief that one must be a socialist or communist dupe to be a member of the ‘Main Stream Media’ – MSM. It never stops amazing me that both F. A. Hayek and T. Sowell got it so correct when they classified the media in general as, my summation, self-aggrandizing ideological intelligentsia – by category and not reality.
I really have to take you down a path that I rarely go down. The need for this has become so obvious in my personal studies not only of the Founders but also of the Bible that it is a journey that must be taken. After studying the Bible for about forty years with searches in original language and historical/geographical context; I believe I have a good sense as to what it says in relation to the present relevance of God acting in humanity, in time – space continuum and geo-political society in general.
So you wonder, ‘what’s that got to do with the ‘main stream media’ not being so intelligent?’
Simply put it is a direct reference and correlation to the book of Jeremiah and specifically Chapters Five through Nine. Now I’m not going to get into writing a Bible study or commentary. I’m just going to make a basic attempt at showing the correlations of the so called illuminated intelligentsia media and maybe even the political elite to the reprehensible reporting based on a lack of Biblical Reformation God Centered thinking and beliefs.
So, as to not write a short book on this, I’m just going to list the those commonalities of our modern MSM and political leaders to that which has always been condemned by the eternal Living God.
Here we go – all from Jeremiah:
- A False ideology of God: Vs. 1: …find a man, one who does justice and seeks truth, Vs. 2: Though they say, “As the LORD lives,” yet they swear falsely.
- Make ‘sustainability their idol’ refusing to acknowledge the Creator: Vs. 24: … They do not say in their hearts, ‘Let us fear the LORD our God, who gives the rain in its season, the autumn rain and the spring rain, and keeps for us the weeks appointed for the harvest.’
- Deceitful and have become wealthy through their actions: Vs. 26 – 28: ‘”Among my people are the wicked who lie in wait like men who snare birds and like those who set traps to catch people.’ ‘Like cages full of birds, their houses are full of deceit; they have become rich and powerful and have grown fat and sleek. Their evil deeds have no limit; they do not seek justice. They do not promote the case of the fatherless; they do not defend the just cause of the poor.’
- Here’s one for the liberal churches: Vs. 31: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes?
For those that don’t have a clue about Biblical truth or believe that the God of the Bible does not participate in human events, well, this chapter lays out that He does such that historical events prove it out. To the first point of the previous sentence and these Scripture revelations; those to whom these verses refer don’t really care.
To bring other modern perspective into this Chapter and Chapter 8 I suggest reading Hayek’s “Intellectuals and Socialism” as well as Sowell’s 2010 revision of “Intellectuals and Society”.
- The Intelligentsia and MSM are propagators of their own deception as well as imposing it on others with negative consequences then proclaiming themselves self-righteous even in their religious activities: Vs. 8 – 10: But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless. “‘Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house, which bears my Name, and say, “We are safe”–safe to do all these detestable things?
- Not only does the MSM intelligentsia forsake Founders Original Intent for Constitutionalism, they forsake the moral and virtuous Christian context of the Founders underlying beliefs while foisting their arrogance on the youth. Again, this also references sustainability as per the UN’s full description of the agenda: Vs. 18: The children gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough and make cakes to offer to the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to arouse my anger.
- Not paying attention to Founders Original Intent: Vs. 24 & 26: Yet they didn’t listen or pay attention but followed their own advice and according to their own stubborn, evil heart. They went backward and not forward… Yet they did not listen to me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers.
- MSM and intelligentsia pro child genocide ‘abortion’ belief and promotion: Vs. 31: They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Hinnom in order to burn their sons and daughters in the fire, a thing I did not command; I never entertained the thought.
- The MSM and intelligentsia have no shame: Vs. 12: Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush.
- They spread lies and deception everywhere and promote evil rejecting all that is the Foundational framework of the US: Vs. 3, 6 and 8: They bend their tongue like a bow; falsehood and not truth has grown strong in the land; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they do not know me, declares the LORD. Heaping oppression upon oppression, and deceit upon deceit, they refuse to know me, declares the LORD. Their tongue is a deadly arrow; it speaks deceitfully; with his mouth each speaks peace to his neighbor, but in his heart he plans an ambush for him.
In short conclusion, if one does not believe in the reality of the Living God then all of this has no meaning. I suspect that any media person or member of the intelligentsia and the majority of politicians will just laugh at this. But it does call them out! These words of the Bible describe to the last period who and what these folks are and as anyone who has studied the Bible knows, they were the ones that caused Israel and Judah to be dispersed and sent into captivity.
Does God still act in time & space? I absolutely believe He does. He owns it all! It and we are His creation. Those that think they are more, smarter and have bigger ideas then God’s revelation of truth, law and history have no wisdom and are not so intelligent (period). So the elitist politicians, the MSM and intelligentsia are smoke blowing in the wind but…. They make the policy that is corrupting the Republic.
Don’t you think it is time we returned to Founders Original Intent for Constitutionalism by a moral and virtuous people? I think its time to reject these destroyers of the Republic by not paying attention to their stations and make every effort to vet politicians as well as ensure that the next generation fully understands Founders Original Intent.
Hey….. the MSM is Not so intelligent!
