Hacking The News

Print page

UPI and New York Times hackedWith the majority of the news outlets sold-out to the liberal progressive movement, it’s become increasingly harder to get accurate news reports of what’s happening in the world around us. This is nowhere more clearly than in the world of politics.

Everything that is done by every politician is spun by the spin doctors to show their particular ideological cant, regardless of what truly happened. Bad becomes good, good becomes bad and anything the Republican Party does is turned into pure evil, designed to destroy everyone except the wealthy. Forget about what’s really going on, all that matters in the news world is getting the right propaganda out; the right spin on the story.

{adinserter emp}But something new has hit the internet this week, hacking into news sites and putting a new spin onto the news. That is hackers getting into mainstream news outlets and putting forth false stories as if they were true. Whether being done as a gag or with nefarious intent, this new twist on the news could become very dangerous.

Both the New York Post and UPI’s Twitter accounts were hacked into, with stories about how World War III has begun. According to the tweets, the Chinese attacked the USS George Washington, a nuclear powered aircraft carrier and damaged her. The report went on to say that the U.S. Navy was engaged in combat against Chinese vessels in the South China Sea.

In a further tweet on UPI, which is obviously associated with the first two, the Pope declared that World War III had begun. If that wasn’t enough to shake people up, another New York Post tweet said that the Federal Reserve was moving into negative interest rates; something that has never happened before.

Were these merely pranks or was it a test to see what sorts of results such news would cause? At this point, we really don’t know. We don’t even know the identity of the hacker or hacker group, as nobody has come forth to take credit for these actions. That pretty much eliminates the activist group Anonymous, as they tend to brag about their victories.

What’s on The Dark Side?

The scary thing here is how many people could have read those reports and believed them. Most liberals still accept whatever the mainstream press says as gospel, often taking action on that news. I’m not just talking about low information voters here; I’m talking about the decision makers.

All government agencies and trading houses keep close tabs on the major news sources, including what’s trending on social media. That is often considered to be one of the best sources of news, especially since those sources support our liberal king, dictator, president so well.

Both China and Russia have invested a fortune into cyber-warfare, an area where the United States military is horribly behind. With so many Americans dependent upon these news sources for making decisions, could this have been a test by one of those countries cyber-warfare troops?

If so, this could easily be the forerunner of the next global war. Information leaked through news sources could cause government officials to make some major decisions erroneously.

Considering that the liberal left trusts the liberal news much more than they do government intelligence organs, they could ignore what the CIA and other alphabet agencies are saying, deciding instead to make their decisions based on what is being heralded by the news. That sort of mistake could lead us into the next World War.

Even without taking us to the brink of war, false news reports could cause any number of erroneous decisions on the part of government officials. Or, let’s leave them out of it for a moment; what could it do to Wall Street?

Wall Street traders make split-second decisions based a constant stream of news. They are all news junkies, constantly plugged into financial and political news, seeking out the next trend. A few false stories could easily lead them in the wrong direction, making the wrong sorts of trades. That may not sound like much, but left unchecked, this could cause a financial avalanche, bringing down the stock market.

When the stock market falls, the whole country’s finances are affected. In 1929, the stock market crash was enough to drive the country into the Great Depression. With the current shaky economy, which hasn’t really recovered from the 2009 housing crash (regardless of what Obama says); so a stock market crash might drive us into a depression that would make the one in 1929 look like a picnic.

To me, this is just one more reason to not trust the mainstream media and to double and triple check any stories that come across the net. I hope that to others it is a wakeup call to tighten security, so that hackers can’t get into news sources or social media to spread false stories.

If not, who knows where we’ll end up?

  1. This writer is delusional in his assessment of "liberal" news reporting and the attitudes of the people who get news from so-called "liberal" news outlets.

    The truth is that such alarmist headlines and "tweets" are the norm for CONSERVATIVE news outlets, such as Alex Jones and "Before it's the News."

    If people are misinformed it is much more likely to be from a "Right Wing Conservative" news source, such as FOX.

  3. The commenter demonstrates how deceived they are. The so-called "right wing" news station of Fox is on the same team as the rest of the media. Fox is part of the News Corp conglomerate owned by Rupert Murdoch, a long-time member of the globalist oriented, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR membership roster at cfr.org). The CFR is a bankster created organization that pushes globalism and a one world government goal which has all of the "too big to fail" banks and David C. Rockefeller as its Honorary Chairman. (For more on them read Shadows of Power by James Perloff).

    Your so-called "right wing" is simply controlled opposition that presents a counterpoint to the main narrative with the overall intent of moving the people towards the intentional goal of one world government.

    The Fox neo-cons push war because war aids in generating debt which is important for the international banking cartel represented by the Federal Reserve (see Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin) and also aids the wealthy elite who control banking and our media to gain both economic and political control over nations. Debt enslaves one to whom the debt is owed.

    Fact is, the left pushes the same message. How much change in war oriented activities has there been since Obama took office? Try none! In fact, we have been involved in more wars than even under Bush with the continuation of Iraq to this day (while lessened under the same time frame as Bush proposed) and escalated in Afghanistan as well as involvement in Arab Spring revolutions, Libya and others.

    There is no difference between the so-called left and rights other than a false emphasis of difference to produce the illusion of right and left. In the end, we continue to be led towards their overall paradigm of one world government. People who buy into one "side" or the other of the false left-right, Democrat-Republican, right wing-left wing models are simply a pack of suckers falling prey to their propaganda machines controlled by fiat currency issued by a now global central banking scheme.

    People are in fact simply misinformed by all of the media and it is by no means an accident.

    • To TFJNOW:
      I think you are spot on. Now, what do you think can be done about it? It seems to be well beyond my limited sphere of influence to effect any noticeable change in the situation (the vote doesn't seem to help much). Perhaps the answer is to live a peaceable life, be kind to one another, and trust in The God of Heaven to work in us and through us.

  4. Michael skok says:

    World War III, huh. Well, let's see. Yes, there is a danger of a World War III, and that is because B.O. is dismantling our nuclear deterrent forces. He is also weakening the command or military leadership structure by forcing many of our best generals to retire or by just firing them. Communist Red China, on the other hand, is engaging in the most rapid military buildup during peace time since Nazi Germany. And if we elect another radical leftist liberal to the White House, like Hillary, then we can expect further decline of the America's power and its ability to keep the peace. Not only that, we can expect to see the crash of the stock market and the dollar. We might be attacked from within as well as from without. Muslim terrorist sleeper cells will probably do away with our electrical power grids, which are extremely vulnerable. Americans will slowly die by the millions from lack of electricity. God Almighty help us because the future does not look too rosy. And that's how we can blame the liberal press for all this. They simply will not report the bad things that are developing around the world. Everything is just wonderful. Obama is wonderful. The economy is wonderful. The Muslims are wonderful. Everything is just beautiful and so peaceful except for those conservative Christians, creationists, and Israel. This is exactly what is going to happen. This is what the Bible predicts in I Thessalonians 5:3, "For when they shall say, 'Peace and safety,' then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child..."

      NOTHING is wonderful but yes definitely the christians, creationist and Israel are DEFINITELY MAKING EVERYTHING WORSE.. AND THE CONSERVATIVE STUPID BRAINLESS REPUBLICANS. Obama is just one more puppet and the single best evidence that no president actually is anything BUT a puppet. And Hillary is way too tight with military industrial complex to lay down arms, au contrare.. she will be into war.

    This stuff has gotten so out of hand that one cannot help but doubt the validity of "anything" on the social media. I want to...I have a tendency to trust...but I am becoming hardened to what I see and hear that cannot be trusted...and THAT is the very reason I disconnected my television...garbage, only garbage!

  6. PAY ATTENTION!!! The comment early on in this article about the Republican Party is a moot point. If you think for one second there are two parties you have already missed the boat. The Commy/Facist/Totalitarian/Socialist scumbag Big Brother government wants you to think you have a choice between the two. IT'S ONE BIG MONSTER! Are you getting this? Wake up.

  9. The allocation, this month, of $ 1/2 Trillion for military and some think Obama is 'weakening' the military? 1000 bases overseas? 19 Aircraft carriers? 10ks Nukes? Weakening the military?

    The US can nuke the USSR (plan hasn't changed) three ways: ICMB, Sub Launched nukes and for anything leftover, SAC, flying B-52s into 500 mph winds. Doesn't seem excessive?

    As a "cross cultural missionary", one might be offended by state organized murder. Seems to violate some Bible commands or ideas? Treat your neighbor as yourself?

    US now tortures, kidnaps, murders and cover-ups. Doesn't seem very friendly.

    Terror Bombs, similar to V-1 and V-2 rockets, now called 'drones', don't fit the Apostle's Creed, either.

    Typically, these daily crimes aren't covered on FOX or CNN. Least not called crimes. These were ordered by Bush, continued by Obama and likely those elected after.

    Those Trillions to make war, are borrowed you know? From the FED? The central, private bank?

    Nothing so far, that you don't pass along as "A-OK God Bless America" south of the border?

    Can I ask you this: Do you join in prayer with Mexican people "for the troops"?
    In 2006, American missionaries briefly contended that US military personel in other countries, were like missionaries. They just carried guns as they handed out soccer balls. Soccer balls for Jesus.

    If so, please add me to your prayer list: as a 'cross cultural missionary" in Northern Mexico, I pray with Mexican people "God destroy the American War Machine" before it destroys the planet.

  10. Bill, not to get off point that you don't like Liberals and assuming your experience is with either Christ or the Bible, here is a question:

    When Jesus died on the cross, for everyone, was that an inherently liberal or conservative deed?

    Defying the religious order of the day? Throwing the money changers out of the temple? Hanging with drunks and prostitutes? Feeding the poor? Forgiving and loving homosexuals and adulterous persons? 70 X 7?

    I'm sure you will forgive me for this context:

    Helping people and attending to their well being is a liberal attitude. You seem to resent it so much.

    Now the enemy of Christ? Mr. D? not so much liberal like Christ. His politics are conservative.

  13. It used to be in the 70's and 80's that approx. 90 different organizations owned 95% of the news outlets. Now that number is 6. Try and convince someone that is good.
