Swamp Gas: Ukraine Narrative Dividing Conservatives and America

UniParty Media Goes Global

We’ve been watching this war in Ukraine for more than one week, and one of the things that’s become apparent is that there’s a clear divide among conservatives about the war.  The divide is more thorough in the media sphere, but it’s real, and neither side should discount it. On the one hand, you have the segment that I’ll call the pro-interventionists, and even there, it’s not a uniform body of opinion.  On the other hand, you have the anti-interventionists, and again, they’re not perfectly uniform in their view.  The primary cause of all of this division and confused positions arises out of one specific, underlying cause.  The first group is generally prone to accept the media reports at face value, while the second group is not.  This is the result of years of unreliable, unverified, unproven and false reports in the mainstream media, that has shown itself to be perfectly incapable of reporting straight news in the domestic arena.  This is dangerous to our movement, but more importantly to our republic.  As we’ve seen quite clearly in the last six years, the shaping of the media narrative in the media is designed to exact a specific outcome that favors the DC UniParty.  It’s that simple.  The establishment in Washington DC directs the narrative, and the media shamelessly follows along, in order to further their shared interests.  Conservatives must learn, for once and for all, that the DC establishment’s narrative and media domination does not end at the water’s edge. Swamp gas has gone global.

When you consider the media conglomerates that dominate media, what you find is that most are associated quite closely in one way or another.  This set of relationships extends far beyond American shores, as outfits like Paramount Global(Parent of CBS News, Viacom, and others) and NewsCorp(sister company of Fox Corporation and parent of Sky News and others) will quite nicely demonstrate.  NBCUniversal is a similar conglomerate, ultimately the parent of NBCNews, MSNBC, CNBC, and Telemundo among many others.  ABC News is part of another conglomerate owned by Disney, and naturally, CNN is owned by ATT.  The number of print and and broadcast assets under the umbrellas of the media empires constitutes much of the media you consume.  Spend five minutes chasing links from one to another on even and admittedly left-wing reference like Wikipedia, and you will quickly see the ties from one outlet to another.  Add to this the endless cross-pollination as so-called ‘journalists’ move back and forth within the span of the larger umbrella, and you begin to see the trouble.  Then consider how frequently members come from or move to politics and familial relations to politicians, and you see how corrupt this has all become.  By design, they’re all tied-in to the DC UniParty, that spreads it tentacles around the Western world.  Europe, the Americas, and Australia are all places in which these conglomerates compete and largely dominate for the news space.  This is what the media branch of our ruling mafia looks like.

What this means is that in many ways, if you’re searching for news and information, you’re unlikely to avoid the narratives being propagated throughout the DC UniParty’s sphere and reach. In fact, if you search on any of the search engines on any big story, you’re unlikely to get results in the first three or four pages of results that aren’t shaped by or directly disseminated from beneath this umbrella.  You really must go a long way outside of these to find sites and sources that do not rely entirely or almost entirely on the information, misinformation, and disinformation being spewed by these conglomerates.  It’s difficult for non-connected outlets to get noticed, particularly with outfits like Google and Bing acting as gatekeepers that will steer you back beneath the safe confines of the umbrella.

No narrative demonstrates this more thoroughly than the current DC UniParty’s narrative on Ukraine.  This narrative is almost impossible to escape, and as we’ve seen recently, even conservatives easily become ensnared by the tentacles reaching ever outward from the simmering pit of their swamp.  It’s not that they shape the news, so much as that in many cases, they’re fabricating it from whole cloth.  On Thursday night, they rushed to the news-desks and printing presses and websites with the narrative that the Ukrainian nuclear power plant at Zaporizhzhia, which caught on fire early Friday morning, had rising radiation levels. Within hours, this was all shown to be false, inasmuch as the actual fire was in an administrative building, and radiation levels from the plant were never affected.  This is the second time during the course of this war that this narrative has been spread, last week seeing a similar story focused on the plant at Chernobyl.

As I’ve been covering during the last several days, the reporting we’re seeing is almost entirely propaganda, but not from the Russians or Ukrainians as would be expected.  Instead, most all the propaganda we’re now seeing is emanating from Western media, including particularly the swamp-gassers in DC and New York.  The problem for conservatives rests with the segment of conservatives who still trust anything in media at this point.  The same media that provided all of the false narratives over the last seven years with respect to Trump, Russia, impeachments, Jan 6th, COVID, and all the other nonsense we’ve been force-fed all emanates from the same fetid, stinking, stagnant pool.

I wish there were a way to show conservatives who are still being misled that the false narratives don’t stop at the water’s edge.  There is no clean and pure media anywhere in the West, if it’s tied to this same crowd of spinmeisters.  Conservatives who understand this are refusing to go along, as they should.  Stories have now come out that Zelenskiy may in fact be as corrupt as the guy he replaced, and he’s got offshore accounts and interests as far away as Belize.  This is a fact the swamp-gassers will never tell you, because it doesn’t fit with their narrative.  The larger problem, however, is getting these conservatives still slurping-up the media narrative to understand they’re being fooled again, and by the same crowd.  Once you see it, there’s no going back, and it’s important for Americans to see it.  What I’ve heard so far of Bongino’s radio show on Friday suggests that he’s begun to see it more clearly.  Having investigated the SpyGate scandal, and indeed having written books about it, Bongino has caught scent of the swamp in all of this, and it’s important that others do too.
