Why Wait for it to Happen? The Media Now Invents News Stories From the Future

We decide what you need to know. If it hasn’t happened yet, we will make it up.

From the Metro article – American politicians played out the scenario…

Politicians apparently make up part of what is described as “experts”. This is supposed to be taken seriously.

I now know exactly what to do with anything from “Metro”. I figured out the NYT a long time ago.

A new pandemic disease could kill almost a billion people, a Metro article warns. The only problem: the disease is made up.

A fake terrorist organization created a fake pathogen, the effects of which were monitored via a fake reality simulation. That’s today’s news.

By the end of the simulation in May, representing 20 months after the start of the outbreak, there were 150 million dead around the world – and no vaccine. The researchers say that the simulation would have ended with up to 900 million dead, nearly 10% of the world’s population.

Eric Toner of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health Security says the world was ‘lucky’ the SARS outbreak wasn’t worse.

Clade X was designed to spread about as easily and kill a similar percentage to SARS, Toner says.

Go over to the New York Times, and they have run two articles about how Trump lost, as well as won, the 2020 election. The election is over two years away.

Both articles used Elizabeth Warren as Trump’s challenger, which to me is more terrifying than the fake pandemic.

It almost feels like the news is one of those kids’ chapter books where you get to choose the ending. Even when the media isn’t running quite literally made-up news articles, news readers can choose their own news. They just have to decide what they want to hear, and visit the proper publication…

If you want 24/7 something something something Russia, just head over to CNN. I prefer James Bond movies for my cold war propaganda since it’s more interesting, and about as realistic, as CNN.

If you are into controlled opposition, go over to to read the 10 Signs That America is in Much Worse Trouble Than We Thought. This includes mothers dying during childbirth and people taking advantage of disaster victims. Child sexual predators actually take up two spots on the list. What a worldview to wake up to in the morning!

Not that you should stay in a bubble of false-positivity either, but that would likely be better than drinking up all this fear-porn.

The media isn’t really reporting the news that matters anyway, so why bother bringing yourself down?…

We can’t ignore problems that need solving, but as we know from psychology, positive reinforcement is more powerful than negative reinforcement. So if we focus on the amazing things happening in the world, that is what will proliferate. You can do this without sticking your head in the sand.

For instance, there is a serious problem with drug addiction in America. The drug warand government funding for opioids play large roles in this problem. Once we understand that though, our focus should shift to solutions. States have been empowered by legalizing cannabis, and new research unveils the potential for psilocybin mushrooms to help people overcome addiction.

See the difference in the approach? One focuses only on the negatives, while the other acknowledges the negatives, but focuses on the solutions.

As for the fake 2020-election headlines, why waste your time? It is basically just part of the incoherent shouting match between the hard left and right. Each is desperate to win, so they stroke themselves with fantasies for how future elections will go.

What would be truly amazing is if by the time 2020 rolls around, people are so self-empowered that they give hardly a thought to which dinosaur will occupy an old house in DC.

And that is the future that we are actually trending towards. Individuals are becoming more empowered by the day.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.
