Unlike presstitutes, the loyalty of real journalists is to Truth, not to a government or corporate advertiser. Once a journalist sacrifices Truth to loyalty to a government, he ceases to be a journalist and becomes a propagandist.— Paul Craig Roberts

From 1981-1983, when I served as a Mormon missionary, all missionaries memorized written lessons which included an invaluable lesson named Truth versus Error. The title alone has inspired me over the years to reflect on its significance.
Now that an 800-page report on Benghazi is released, here is another great example you can prove to yourself who is telling the truth and which media empires propagate truth versus error.
This Associated Press title, as posted on Mormon KSL.com, was House GOP report faults military on Benghazi attacks. Minutes late the title changed but the URL did not:
Benghazi report faults security; no new Clinton allegations.
Did the Military Industrial Complex demand a title change?
Many people only read headlines so headlines are super important.
World Net Daily reports:
Lawmakers charge Hillary, Obama with lying, cover-up.
Breitbart reports Benghazi Bombshell: No Evidence of Obama’s ‘Three Directives’.
Which article correctly describes whom the 800-page report blames? Was it the military, security, Obama and Hillary? Were they all blamed or was nobody blamed?
Read the report Select Committee on Benghazi Releases Proposed Report and discover truth versus error yourself.
I have not read the report yet but suspect it blames Obama and Hillary.
Later in the day the KSL front-page headline was replaced with this: Final Benghazi report: No ‘smoking gun’ pointing to Clinton. Did the Associated Press reporters have time to read 800 pages?
The Associated Press is a propaganda machine for the global elite who last week suffered a setback when citizens of Great Britain, despite the huge amounts of propaganda thrust against them, voted to separate themselves from world government designed so the middle and lower class are reduced to peasants.
I wonder if Great Britain’s decision caused the bells of heaven to ring and the heavenly hosts to rejoice.
Later today another article appeared: Final Benghazi report: No ‘smoking gun’ pointing to Clinton.
The Mormon Church’s media empire propagates Associated Press lies. Friends tell me not to let it bother me. They say, “I’ve learned to separate the gospel from the corporate church.”
How can churches defend religious liberty when their news media support the globalist agendas? What good is news content unless it is true and supports correct, founding principles?
The Mormon Church knows their own scripture warns against a global secret society in the last days who are determined to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations and countries but don’t expect today’s church leaders to rebuke their media empire for supporting it!
Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain—and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.
Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up.
For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning. — Book of Mormon Ether 8:23-25.
LDS Church members, including myself, are told that during the war in heaven they were valiant and supported Jesus Christ; the other 1/3 supported Satan and were cast out of heaven for rebellion. Today every citizen worldwide must decide if they directly or indirectly support globalism and churches that support globalism, or freedom and liberty, and churches that openly teach and support those principles. They can’t do both and neither can we.
We all need to decide which side of the fence we are on regardless of the news presented to us.
This is an outstanding observation by Brigham Young that reminds me of the White House lawyers who betray the U.S. Constitution to uphold the President in his unlawful constitutional breaches:
When a false theory has to be maintained, it requires to be set forth with much care; it requires study, and learning, and cunning sophistry to gild over a falsehood and give it the semblance of truth, and make it plausible and congenial to the feelings of the people; but the most simple and unlearned person can tell you the truth. A child can tell you the truth, in childlike language, while falsehood requires the lawyer and the priest to tell it to make it at all plausible; it requires a scholastic education to make falsehood pass for truth…
Men are educated to promulgate and sustain false theories to make money, and to create and uphold powerful sects.—Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 11:214
Great quote from Paul Craig Roberts:
Dear Western Peoples, if you wish to be able to walk down the streets of your cities without being accosted by police, demanded to present identity papers, searched, detained indefinitely or assassinated without due process of law, if you wish to be able to express your opinion about “your” government and its use of your tax payments, if you wish to be able to discuss current affairs or your personal affairs without being recorded by the NSA or the equivalent in your own country or by both, if you wish to be able to act on your moral conscience and to protest the violence the West applies to Muslims and others unfavored by powerful Western interests, such as Palestinians, if you wish to live in the freedom that was achieved in the West after centuries of struggle, wake up, find time from less meaningful pursuits to become aware of what is being stolen from you. It is late in the game. If you do not stand up for truth, you will have no freedom as there is no freedom without truth. — There Is No Freedom Without Truth — Paul Craig Roberts
