- The Illuminists have now put into play
the final power grab to seize control of the 3 traditional forms of
main stream media,
(newspaper, magazine, book publishing)
The United States Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) is now set to
consider total revision on the ownership of Television and radio
stations. For decades a station ownership was highly restricted to
prevent monopolies in local city markets. The idea was to prevent
local news censorship and government corruption that might develop
if all news media were under the control of a few.
The original authors of the Federal Communications Commission laws
and amendments that were written fifty, sixty and seventy years ago
encouraged a widely divergent ownership in order that there would be
a wide range of viewpoints for local communities in part to prevent
monopolies and the threat of local corruption.
However, since the
mid-1970s, the pendulum began to swing away from exclusive,
individual ownership and began to permit large corporations from
owning more than 7 television stations and 7 radio stations in the
nation. Eventually those numbers kept expanding but local limits
remained, which in turn limited national ownership.
Another aspect that limited ownership of stations was the
prohibition against newspaper companies also owning television and
or radio stations. Eventually the rules allowed newspapers to own
stations in cities where they didn't have newspapers. Now that rule
is up for change too.
If the FCC chairman has his way, by the end of the year, Big Media
Conglomerates will be able to complete the sweep of ownership,
further shrinking supervening control and authority over "mainstream
What is happening is that the Illuminists are moving swiftly now to
get the final chess pieces in place for the final end-game in their
quest for World Conquest and the presentation of humanity for
slavery under the control of supernatural forces of the Satanic
forces waging a cosmic revolution against the Creator of the
Part of the end-game strategy is to have the mainstream
media under the tightest controls possible with as few hands
involved in the control process as possible. To do that, media
ownership needs to shrink still further than it has till now. There
are still too many people, too many "owners."
It would appear that the Illuminists are ultimately looking to move
total main stream media control into the hands of just two, three or
maybe four or five companies, worldwide. To reach that goal, laws
and regulations have to be changed and judged on how the FCC is
looking to allow changes, it appears the Illuminists need it NOW.
Normally, the FCC rulings involve a long period of time for changes
to be implemented. I know it used to be two or three or even as much
as 5 year time frames for changes in ownership rules. To see the
intention to apply a regulations change in 2 months or less is
shocking and unprecedented.
So why so fast? What's up?
The Illuminists appear to be trying to step up the pace of the
agenda. According to some Illuminati-watchers, the NWO agenda has
fallen behind its timeline agenda for goal-achievements. Originally,
the Illuminists and the
New World Order
crowd had intended to hand
over the world and humanity to
their "messiah" the Antichrist by the
That time has come and gone without reaching that goal.
From what we now gather, the next target for the
New World Order is
December 21, 2012, which is the winter solstice which
allegedly ends the Satanically-oriented Mayan occult calendar, which
claims to be the end of the world - and the start of a new 25,000
year cycle of life.
Supposedly during the switchover, Earth
aligns with the center of the galaxy or universe and undergoes great
physical changes to the planet due to
galactic disturbances sweeping
through the solar system.
All of this is "alleged" and whether we
think it or not, the thing is "They do."
For that reason, here again
you're going to see further escalation of New World Order efforts to
transform the world into a One-World government in the next 5 years.
For that reason, we can expect massive terror events and major
warfare, perhaps nuclear war. The Illuminist's agenda as outlined by
Freemaonsry's Albert Pike, aka the head of the Illuminati in
the last few years of his life, indicated that a third world war
would be engineered by the Illuminists.
It would be
centered in the Mideast
and would focus on the destruction of the three major religions of
the world, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, in order to bring about
One-World Religion of peace that would honor the new
world dictator who would emerge after that third global war.
events underway now in the Middle
East are any indication, watchers realize that the Illuminists are moving now as
quickly as they can to get everything in place for the BIG EVENT,
the war to end all wars. A war so hideous that the world will beg
for gentle global dictator to stop wars between nations.

Plan Would Ease Limits on Media
by Stephen Labaton
Published: October 18, 2007
WASHINGTON, Oct. 17 — The head of the
Federal Communications Commission has circulated an ambitious plan
to relax the decades-old media ownership rules, including repealing
a rule that forbids a company to own both a newspaper and a
television or radio station in the same city.
A proposal from Kevin J. Martin could change media ownership
rules in two months.
Kevin J. Martin, chairman of the commission, wants to repeal the
rule in the next two months — a plan that, if successful, would be a
big victory for some executives of media conglomerates.
Among them are Samuel Zell, the Chicago
investor who is seeking to complete a buyout of the Tribune Company,
and Rupert Murdoch, who has lobbied against the rule for years so
that he can continue controlling both The New York Post and a
television station in New York.
The proposal appears to have the support of a majority of the five
commission members, agency officials said, although it is not clear
that Mr. Martin would proceed with a sweeping deregulatory approach
on a vote of 3 to 2 — something his predecessor tried without
success. In interviews on Wednesday, the agency’s two Democratic
members raised questions about Mr. Martin’s approach.
Mr. Martin said he was striving to reach a consensus with his fellow
commissioners, both on the schedule and on the underlying rule
changes, although he would not say whether he would move the
measures forward if he were able to muster only three votes.
“We’ve had six hearings around the
country already; we’ve done numerous studies; we’ve been
collecting data for the last 18 months; and the issues have been
pending for years,” Mr. Martin said in an interview. “I think it
is an appropriate time to begin a discussion to complete this
rule-making and complete these media ownership issues.”
Officials said the commission would
consider loosening the restrictions on the number of radio and
television stations a company could own in the same city.
Currently, a company can own two television stations in the larger
markets only if at least one is not among the four largest stations
and if there are at least eight local stations. The rules also limit
the number of radio stations that a company can own to no more than
eight in each of the largest markets.
The deregulatory proposal is likely to put the agency once again at
the center of a debate between the media companies, which view the
restrictions as anachronistic, and civil rights, labor, religious
and other groups that maintain the government has let media
conglomerates grow too large.
As advertising increasingly migrates from newspapers to the
Internet, the newspaper industry has undergone a wave of upheaval
and consolidation. That has put new pressure on regulators to loosen
ownership rules. But deregulation in the media is difficult
politically, because many Republican and Democratic lawmakers are
concerned about news outlets in their districts being too tightly
controlled by too few companies.
In recent months, industry executives had all but abandoned the hope
that regulators would try to modify the ownership rules in the
waning days of the Bush administration.
“This is a big deal because we have
way too much concentration of media ownership in the United
States,” Senator Byron L. Dorgan, Democrat of North Dakota, said
at a hearing on Wednesday called to examine the digital
transition of the television industry.
“If the chairman intends to do something by the end of the
year,” Mr. Dorgan added, his voice rising, “then there will be a
firestorm of protest and I’m going to be carrying the wood.”
Supporters of the changes say that the
rules are outdated and that there is ample empirical evidence to
support their repeal. A small number of media companies, including
The New York Times Company, are able to own both a newspaper and a
radio station in the same city because the cross-ownership
restrictions, which went into effect in 1974, were not applied
Mr. Martin faces obstacles within the agency to overhauling the
rules. One Democrat on the commission, Michael J. Copps, is
adamantly opposed to loosening the rules. The other, Jonathan S. Adelstein, has said that the agency first needs to address other
media issues, including encouraging improved coverage of local
events and greater ownership of stations by companies controlled by
women and minorities.
Advisers to Mr. Martin said he hoped to gain the support of at least
one of the Democrats, probably Mr. Adelstein, but Mr. Adelstein said
in an interview on Wednesday that Mr. Martin’s proposed timetable
was “awfully aggressive.”
Three years ago, the commission lost a major court challenge to its
last effort, led by Michael K. Powell, its chairman at the time, to
relax the media ownership rules. The United States Court of Appeals
for the Third Circuit, in Philadelphia, concluded that the
commission had failed to adequately justify the new rules. Mr.
Martin’s proposal would presumably include new evidence aimed at
fending off similar legal challenges.
Mr. Powell’s effort, which had been supported by lobbyists for
broadcasters, newspapers and major media conglomerates, provoked a
wave of criticism from a broad coalition of opponents. Among them
were the National Organization for Women, the National Rifle
Association, the Parents Television Council and the United States
Conference of Catholic Bishops.
The agency was flooded with nearly three million comments against
changing the rules, the most it has ever received in a rule-making
Since the appeals court struck down the deregulatory changes, the
commission has continued to study the issues at a leisurely pace,
and it held a series of hearings around the nation. It had not made
any new proposals, and industry executives had not expected the
agency to move again so soon.
But in recent days, Mr. Martin has proposed to expedite the
rule-making and hold a final vote in December. In part, he has told
commission officials, he was reacting to criticism by Mr. Copps
about temporary waivers that have allowed companies to own
newspapers and stations in the same market.
Mr. Zell has said he wants to complete his $8.2 billion buyout of
Tribune Company by the end of the year. Tribune had been granted
what were supposed to be temporary waivers to the rule to allow it
to control newspapers and television stations in five cities: New
York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Hartford and the Miami-Fort Lauderdale
Mr. Copps, who for years has waged a campaign against media
consolidation, said that it would be hard for the commission to
proceed during an election year because media consolidation has
provoked deep public skepticism in the past.
He said Mr. Martin’s proposal to complete a relaxation of the rules
in December would require procedural shortcuts, giving the public
too little time to comment on the proposals and industry experts too
little time to weigh their impact on news operations.
“We shouldn’t be doing anything
without having a credible process and nothing should be done to
get in the way of Congressional oversight and more importantly,
public oversight,” Mr. Copps said in a telephone interview from
“We’ve got to have that public scrutiny. That was one of
the big mistakes that Mr. Powell made, and he was taken to the
woodshed by the Third Circuit. I fear it is déjà vu all over
