Media Collusion: JournoList

Media Collusion first appeared publically when JournoList was exposed for manipulating negative News Content surrounding candidate Barrack Hussein Obama during the 2008 Presidential Election. A seemingly stealth operation during the 2012 Presidential Election

 assured then President Obama would win a second term. With previous successes having gotten away with it following the 2008 and 2012 elections, Media pushed even greater boundaries in 2016 by advocating for a candidate (Hillary Clinton) documented to have gone so far as to violate Federal Laws and National Security Protocols.

The fact that a Politician or Special Interest will and should (legally) do everything they can to motivate a populous to stand behind their particular cause is no more alarming than marketers using advertisements to sell a product.

However, when and where seemingly diverse groups in vase numbers synchronize around a central Political effort and collude with widely distributed yet organized members of Competing Media Corporations to inaccurately shape, misrepresent and distract from factual truths using opinion and insinuation to mislead readers they risk becoming smaller pieces of a much larger syndicate intentionally performing acts as part of a broader criminal organization.

Daniel Levy, Century Foundation referred to the JournoList group as “Obama’s non-official campaign“.

That was the case in 2008 when the wide reaching organized effort of diverse Media Reporters privately (through the JounoList ListServer) colluded to “discredit” Sarah Palin as soon as Candidate McCain announced her as his Vice Presidential selection.

The Daily Caller identifies how JournoList Members coordinated attacks on Sarah Palin. Daniel Levy at the Century Foundation (a progressive think tank) referred to the JournoList group as “Obama’s non-official campaign” noting they had “a big role to play in defining Palin, shaping the terms of the conversation and saying things that the official [Obama] campaign shouldn’t say“.

This was no isolated incident. In 2016, the public became aware that Media was the centerpiece of delivering “messages” professionally prepared by outside Organizations and Industries no closer to Media than President Trump. Media Reporters from a vast array of News Organizations colluded to frame news content that would “scare people“.

Stated in their own electronic words, many in Media knowingly made coordinated efforts to Influence the Outcome of Presidential Elections in the United States of America.

The “people” these reporters targeted were the American voter. In other words, the DNC, Clinton Campaign, news entities, editors and reporters made calculated and more often organized efforts to influence the American Voter, how and who Americans Voted for.

Such revelations puts a new light on President Trumps’ decisive willingness to bypass Media to assure American Citizens hear his words correctly. Something Obama and Clinton called “Transparency” yet put so much effort into coordinating with Media and concealing shady deals.

JournoList 1.0
JournoList (circa 2007-2010), a “by-invitation-only group” numbering over four hundred Political Reporters was the first known to use Internet technologies to organize, centralize and publish News Content based on a central effort to benefit a singular Political Party and Candidate (Obama).

JournoList was a Private Google Groups Forum comprised of over 400 “left-leaning” journalists, bloggers, political reporters, magazine writers, policy wonks and academics created by Ezra Klein who spent the first five years of the Obama Administration working for The Washington Post.

Dave Weigel, another Washington Post writer and JournoList Member (recommended by Klein) was eventually forced to resign from the Post in 2010 when emails emerged showing extremely vile comments about industry peer Matt Drudge at the New York Times. Somehow, Dave Weigel found his way back to the Washington Post in July of 2015, just in time to apply his vile views and Political Manipulation to the 2016 Rrimary Elections.

And, just because Ezra Klein took down the JournoList Group ListServer in 2010, didn’t mean the effort and collusion ended in 2010. In fact, we now know Hillary Clinton under President Obama told the biggest lie to America since Nixon when they claimed an internet video was responsible for the attack in Benghazi on the eve of the 9/11 New York attack less than two months before the 2012 Election. Harry Reid (D-NV), Senate Majority Leader later admited to lying about Mitt Romneys taxes – in another attempt to influence the 2012 Presidential Election.

These lies, the effort by Media to cover-up real facts combined with other tidbits got Barrack Hussein Obama elected in 2012 for a second term solidifying ObamaCare (ACA) and the American Governments’ takeover of the US Health Insurance Industry. Which long term could eventually lead to employees being taxed on the $12,000 to $36,000 in annual tax-free Health Insurance Cost/Benefits that are paid for by their employers.

That one lie, led to two more lies, which led to four more lies (and so on…) until eventually Hillary Clinton (then Secretary of State and forth in line for President) was exposed for concealing a Private email server used to conduct Federal Business… along with an entire encore of criminal activity.

However, it took nearly four years to get the information and clear enough details so the average news consumer could actually get a grip on the depths of the criminal investigations and conclusions crafted to deceive voters. These revelations came late and despite a generally favorable Media that attempted to distract from every little detail beginning with the Video.

The effort by Media extended well beyond legality and morality in they supported distractions that included FBI Director Comny with a Democrat/Republican talking points announcement in the summer of 2016 and a subsequent story by ABC that looked more like a list of excuses for criminal activity clearly defined in that final FBI announcement just month before the 2016 Presidential Election and days before Hillary Clinton was given the DNC Nomination over and in contrast to the popularity of Bernie Sanders.

JournoList 2.0
In August of 2014, MediaTrackers reported discovery of a new Google Group called “Gamechanger Salon” founded by another leftwing activist Billy Wimsatt. After conducting an analysis of the content, members, “types excluded” from membership, policies and the 2014/2015 calendar of supported events MediaTrackers appropriately dubbed it “JournoList 2.0”.

Established just in time for the 2016 Presidential Elections, the list of participants at Gamechanger Salon included over 1,000 influencial individuals with an expanded spectrum of members that include political leaders, special interest, activists, college professors and of course journalist to publish the groups propaganda.

Journalist come from the traditional high profile, high reach and highly repeated organizations including Poltical Reporters from:

  • Al Jazeera America Television
  • Media Matters
  • New York Times
  • Reuters
  • The Huffington Post
  • The Nation Magazine
  • ThinkProgress
  • Thomson Reuters
  • U.S. News & World Report

Huffington Post members included approximately two dozen contributors.

Redstate, an affiliate of Salem Media Group, highlights how this Private ListServe Group continued the collusion between activist, special interest, politicians, campaigns and Media intent on controlling the narrative and manipulating Political News Content using everything from misdirection to misinformation.

One technique involved pushing a specific agenda by painting conservatives in a bad light to distract the public from more factual content. The light most News Consumers would likely see Democrat Politicians in, if the same Big Media Corporations did not cover up the dirt by pointing fingers at Republicans.

Members in the area of Activist and Special Interest Groups range from the AFL-CIO and ACLU to the United Nations: World Food Programme (WFP) including:

  • SEIU
  • Political Action
  • University of Wisconsin Professor
  • Greenpeace
  • Netroots Nation
  • Progressive Change Campaign Committee
  • Planned Parenthood

Members from Activist and Special Interest Groups include High-Level positions ranging from Chiefs of Staff, Executive Directors, Policy Directors and National Directors to Directors of Communications, etc. etc. etc…. Mediatracker provides links to pdf’s that include a complete list of Members, emails and interesting information about member “United Nations World Food Programme” described as an active participant influencing elections. Mediatracker also provides Gamechange Salon’s (aka: Journalist 2.0) Policy Manual. Reading even democrat voters will find frightening.

There were over 1,400 participants in just these two Organized Groups of Political Reporters and Special Interest we know about. In contrast to a lot of facts about private servers, a fake video, changing excuses, Congressional misrepresentations and evasion, the Clinton Foundation and acquisition of American Uranium assets by Candian and Russian interest, 57 of the top 100 News Publications supported Hillary Clinton. Only 1 News Publication supported Donald Trump while 26 remained silent or independent of Presidential Candidate support.

JournoList is just one of several “Media” elements participating at the Center of a Propaganda Communications Machine Democrats have been cultivating in what should be considered Political RICO (Racketeering Influenced & Corrupt Organization). An audacious coordinated effort to gain and maintain control of the White House. Other participants can be found in links between Media and the DNC, Clinton Campaign and Special Interest will be connected through the DNA Links contributors are developing to provide a conceptual view of the corruption involved.


JournoList 1.0

In 2008, “JournoList” participants shared talking points about how to shape coverage to help Obama.

They tried to paint any negative coverage of Obama’s racist and hateful pastor, Jeremiah Wright, as out of bounds.

Evidence of Collusion

That’s excellent! If enough people – people on this list? – write that the pick is sexist, you’ll have the networks debating it for days. And that negates the SINGLE thing Palin brings to the ticket

President Trump’s Words

Word Use: President Trump vs. Obama

How does President Trump’s use of words compare with that of Obama and most Democrats in Congress.

During the February 28, 2017 Address to Congress, President Trump used words with significant difference compared to Obama during his first Address to Congress in 2009.

Its important to pay attention to how Politicians talk to the American Voter as much as what they say about voters. In this work, we highlight the use of “key words” and compared them between two Presidents to see what they think about the position and the United States.

According to written transcripts, President Trump used the word “I” only three (3) times during his entire speech. In contrast, President Obama used “I” sixty (60) times and in twenty-one (21) sentences, Obama used “I” as the first word of the sentence. The importance of “I” is in its possessive use drawing the center of attention to the speaker.


We 61 76
Our 44 101
I 49 1
I’ (m / ve) 11 2
I (first word use) 21 1
My 11 9
You 38 9
Your 15 5

Words like “Our” and “We” tend to be inclusive but the context of how they are used needs to be considered. Obama speeches seemed more driven towards inclusion of Government as the center of Politicians dedicated to high moral objectives. Washington Elite Politicians speaking in public forums always seem to follow suit regardless of party.

Whereas President Trump speaks to the People with unity. Something not seen with such committment since President Reagan. Trump speaks of the united effort of all Americans necessary to keep America a country governed by the People and for the People.

The use of the word “You” takes an agressive stance which tends to single out individuals and individual groups of people. Words like “My” are as bad as “I” in that it centers on the speaker as if no body else exist or contributes. In these contexts, Politicians make the job all about the speaker with a lot less emphasis on Citizens who elected them. Equally, these are the elected officials who have demonstrated a history of telling voiters what they want to hear to get elected, but fail to execute on their promisses once in office.

Its as important to listen to what Politicians say in the entire context of what they say as it is to listen to how they say it. We simply can’t rely on the messages Media conveys to readers.

The Russian Misdirect

Do you smell smoke? It could be the smokescreen in all these discussions about Russia influencing the American vote and election results. Could this be intended to distract Voters, the American People and Justice Department from the real news and truth about the Political Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization that failed to win the 2016 Election for Hillary Clinton?Russian Misdirection and Misinformation Campaign

This Russian Misdirect appears intended to distract from the snowstorm of news leading up to the election. Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Campaign, Democratic National Party (DNC) and Media collectively colluded to nominate Hillary Clinton at the demise of Bernie Sanders and millions of American Voters that supported his campaign.

These facts come from a combination of sources. It all started to unravel after a three year effort by Judicial Watch who was successful in obtaining through Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) Requests, emails that exposed Clinton and State Department lies about Benghazi, a Video and how Obama lied about his knowledge of that server.

In the later stages of the election process, Wiki-Leaks types added to this firestorm of negative news by disclosing hacked emails from the DNC and Podesta that led to more “transparency” about Democrats in the Party colluding with Media to shape voter knowledge about these events, the candidates and campaigns of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.

Worst, these sources disclosed total disrespect for all American voters by Democrat Politicians including those at all levels of the Democratic National Party. Not just a handful or “basket full of deplorable” American Voters, a term Clinton used to describe those that did not support her campaign.

Of course, Clinton’s public statement was directed at Republican voters. But Clinton indirectly insulted a significant number of Democrat and Independent Voters. Anyone who saw through her double standards, special treatment and the smokescreens created by Media – the communication division of this Political RICO.

Russian Connections?

Of the three top Political players in this conjecture, Media ignores who has “Russian Political Connections” using disinformation stories about “Russian Business Connections” and “Computer Hacking”. Only Obama and the Clinton’s have documented and highly questionable dealings with Russia.

In 2012, it was Obama’s open microphone slip: ‘After my election I have more flexibility‘, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s “understanding” of that statement and commitment to “transmit that message to Vladimir Putin”

Shortly after Obama’s second term election, Russia executed their latest strong hand land grab on Ukraine’s Crimea Peninsula – a practice last executed by the USSR on Poland in the 1980s. A practice last defended by the USA nearly 200 years ago when California “Petitioned” the Federal Government for Statehood in these United States.

It was Hillary Clinton and the State Department intertwined with Russian Financial contributions to the Clinton Foundation that makes the approval and transfer of American Uranium to Russian Interest highly concerning and questionable. The term “Strategic Resource” is so coined as to indicate and assure these resources remain under American control. The mineral Uranium is used to make bombs so we must ask “why would America transfer ownership of that resource to Russian interest”.

Hillary isn’t the only Clinton who’s been working Russia in the background. Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 to speak at an event for Renaissance Capital. Published news indicates the speaking event went so well, Vladimir Putin called Bill Clinton personally to express his gratitude. More applicable to the complete Russia story are connections between Renaissance Capital, Rosatom and millions donated to the Clinton Foundation from people involved in the acquisition of Uranium One by Russian interest and likely government.

Media admits Trump has no property in Russia but news agencies insist he has received financing from Russian investors for holdings in other parts of Europe. Unfortunately these reports are absent specifics to who the investors are, what holdings they financed, when these investments were made and what percentage of the overall syndication of financing Russian interest ‘may have’ participated in.

The Wiretaps

It’s a silly argument so lets put word associations aside. Whether President Trump used “wiretap” or “surveillence” on Twitter, “seven” (7) characters or “twelve” (12), it all means the same.

Request for warrants to monitor Donald Trump / Associates occurred shortly after Trump became the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party.

As the story continues to unfold, the only thing Media has confirmed is that several attempts were made during the Obama Administration to obtain warrants to monitor Trump and/or his family, associates and businesses. Most (warrants) were rejected until weeks before the election when it was narrowed to nothing of value and nothing specific to the Trump Campaign.

However, somewhere a conversation between Micheal Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak was recorded. By law, the American Citizen in this recording was supposed to be erased and/or hidden by intellegence agents. It was not and the contents or relatd information was provided to and distributed throughout the Obama Administration before it was leaked to the Media by Officials of the U.S. Federal Government.

Coincidentially, these requests for warrants began shortly after Donald Trump became the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party in May of 2016. We do not know if other 2016 Presidential Campaigns for the Republican Nomination were also targets of these so called “Russian Connection” claims of Democrats and the Media.

Ambassador Sergey Kislyak appears to be the centerpiece of Democrat claims. But it has been Media who tied Trump’s Associates to a conversation, Senate Office Meeting (due course of business) and surprisingly, attending the same public event. Media has not used their resources or reported whether these type of superficial links exist between Ambassador Kislyak and any of the other 2016 Candidates for Republican Nominee.


Omissions in cases like this, especially with such broad stroke accusations are acts of trickery intended to bait the reader into believing insinuation. Not one of these stories have compared facts known about relations between Obama, Clinton and Russian interest with innuendo about Trump business activities.

Nor have any of these Media people said anything about the involvement of SEIU (Union) and George Soros (Foreign Special Interest) types. The now deminished Glen Beck once mapped out links between American Poltics, Election Influencing and George Soros. “Project Veritas” who initially disclosed how the Clinton Campaign incited violence at Trump rallies and a voter fraud strategy now “exposes prohibited communications” conducted within the ranks.

Hacking from Russia .ru

As far as Russian hacking, this should be accompanied by full investigating of all communist countries including China and North Korea who have been hacking internet firewalls all over the world. To check this, you only need to look at the logs of network equipment in your home by doing a trace-route on IP addresses trying to logon to your private internet connection. They happen every day!


President Obama’s Conclusion on Russian Hacking

A caller to the Rush Limbuagh show provided the paper trail to President Obama’s comments and conclusions on hacking by the Russian Government. The referenced Quote is from Obama’s Dec 16, 2016 Press Conference. Follow the link to a full transcript in the White House Archives for President Obama.

And so in early September, when I saw President Putin in China, I felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn’t happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out, and there were going to be some serious consequences if he didn’t.

And, in fact, we did not see further tampering of the election process“.

The transcript of the December 12, 2016 Press Conference chaired by President Obama contains a lot of noise about what should and could be done about this or that, when and by whom. The “Official Statement” by President Obama quotes conclusions of both the intelligence community and President Obama at the time.

Investigations into the matter revealed there was “no further tampering of the election process” by Russia after September 3, 2016. So why do Democrat Politicians like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and Media continue to suggest otherwise?

White House Leaks Secret Surveillance Information

Information about private citizens obtained via Government Surveillance leaked for political purposes“.

Testimony by James Clapper and Sally Yates (who obtained and passed along very sensitive and secret information about a private citizen) disclosed how the White House colluded with the Intelligence Community to obtain secret information collected in a FISA sweep. Details which are also protected by the FISA Warrants used to obtain the information. That information was subsequently passed on to the Washignton Post.

Media collusion in misdirecting the public from Subject Matter Damaging to the Obama Presidency is documented in the over abundence of coverage about the 18 days between the date Sally Yates (Acting Attorney General) and friends told the White House Attorney about Flynn and his subsequent termination. (Note: it took four months to properly terminate James Comey)

Michael Flynn is not an isolated case. According to testimony by James Clapper, there have been 1,933 other Private U.S. Citizens who were inadvertantly captured in surveillance and disclosed in 2016 under the Obama Administration.

Notwithstanding, by the written “Word of Law” Sally Yates was not authorized to have the the information she passed along. In addition, the information she had was leaked to Media (Jeff Bezo’s “The Washington Post” in this case) who “Published” this very sensitive and secret information about private citizens.

The core details being “Michael Flynn talked to a Russian Ambassador” has been the root of all misdirection and misinformation about Russia hacking and influence of the 2016 Election through contact(s) connected to the Trump Campaign.

The real stories we should pay attetiion to is that the Information was:

  • Collected & Illegally Stored by Nefarious Means
  • Illegally Obtained by White House Officials
  • Then Leaked to Media
  • And Published by Media



“disgrace President Trump while concurrently covering up the back stories”

The bad actors include the intelligence community (likely FBI) who collected and failed to filter data on an American Citizen, the Justice Department who inappropriately reviewed Private Citizen data, White House Officials (includig and not limited to Sally Yate) who obtained the information and those who subsequently passed it on to Media – who then published the details. The effort (as published) to disgrace President Trump while concurrently covering up the back stories.

This is the Rule of Law — Interpretations of law dynamically modified by Democrat and other Public Servants who selectively apply (or ignore) the “ Words of Law” as necessary to fit an immediate need.

Decide on your own!
Are Russian hacking attempts so unusual or is it the absence of security that’s concerning, who has a history of ‘political connections’ with Russia and who would benefit the most if Hillary Clinton (who we know stole the Presidential Nomination from Sanders) had won the election? Further, with the mounting evidence of collusion within, by and between Government, Politicians, Private Individuals and Media, who has the most to gain by distracting America from the real story?

You know what they say, “if it smells like a skunk”! This one smells like a run for cover. Intentional misdirection to hide the unraveling exposure of Political RICO Conducted by Democrats (many Elected Officials” who openly demonstrate they have no real respect for America, its People or its Laws) and the Media’s continued attempt to cover-up their efforts and contributions to influence America’s 2008, 2012 and 2016 Presidential Elections. “Elected Official” means you (The American Citizen) can do something about it!
