Corporate mergers typically bring with them the pounding drums of success stories and promises to reach new heights. What bells and whistles usually do not sound (at least publicly), are the ones toting the tune of future price gouging and monopolization. Recently, the United States Pirate Party, have sounded off in an attempt to block the merger of two corporate media giants, NBC and Comcast.
The U.S. Pirate Party, wants the people of the United States to see the facts about the NBC and Comcast merger. They want to expose the trade frauds and market share increases that will further this corporate behemoth's agenda in the political and economic process.
Comcast is a huge cable and internet provider across the USA. It consists of a powerful foundation which reaches one out of four households in the United States. A reach that is as powerful as that, can inflict some of it's own political agenda into the advertising and commercial marketplace, meaning that instead of being a non-biased "network", it will promote political ideals that suits it's own interests.
Of course this is considered as "smart investing", on the part of any corporation. You don't throw all your money into one bucket, you put it in many pails and allow it to spread behind investors and companies that can further advance your corporation, and sustain and prevent any threats to your success from assuming power. This is what a "Corporate America" is all about.
A nation once which claimed "For The People, By The People", has been hijacked by greed and financial prosperity. The big downfalls of this greed and financial prosperity, is that it comes at a cost of loss of freedoms and possibilities to average citizens, and destroys the ability for the "little people" to get their message out to the nation.
Welcome to 2010 America, one nation indivisible under profit. Here lies a nation, destroyed by worldwide economic meltdown, due to bad investments and immoral business practices. This modern America, only contains remnants of an industrial complex which once brought the world to their knees, leading the way for all advancements in technology.
Soon after the major boom of of the "American Assembly Line", which once created an workplace opportunity of never ending factory-openings and an environment where any U.S. citizen could find a job, we now have a shattered business model where the people couldn't dream of finding a long-term career in the industrial complex.
A large majority for the acceptance of these changes which led to the downfall of the American workforce, where the television and media networks which promised the people future prosperity if they would back the government (and corporate) agendas for the nation. The opposition to the government, would be demonized on television, and in the newspapers, for not wanting America to succeed. If you disagreed with your government, you were called un-patriotic, and the people were "force fed" this type of slander in the media.
Along came the giants of modern media, NBC, News Corp (20th Century Fox), Walt Disney (ABC), and Viacom (MTV/CBS/etc). These giants would tell the people that everything was going to be okay, that they just had to trust the politicians, and with years of them seeing this type of promise in their face on television sets, newspapers, and other periodicals, they would believe this promise.
Little did they know, that the corporate agenda would soon grasp complete power of the nation which was once created by the people. These same corporate giants, would soon dominate every aspect of the word industry. Media giants would buy out car makers, would purchase pharmaceutical companies, airlines, banks, military equipment manufacturers, colleges, grocery stores, gasoline stations, and more, until every part of the day to day life of "Americana" was owned under their own vision.
This would make the methodology of the independent reporter completely vanish, and during the mean time bias would fill the airwaves, newspapers, and any form of social media which a person would go to in order to receive information. For years, everyone believed that what they saw at home on the nightly news, as the facts in which the USA was always looking towards it's best interests. They had no reason to question these types of lies shrouded in deceit, because their televisions told them it was the right thing to do.
During this battle for control of America, politicians found themselves being lobbied by corporations, with glamorous gifts and showers of gold, only if they would support the agenda of the corporation, such as signing laws into power that would benefit that particular corporate investment. This created the "lobbying" which now exists in Washington, D.C. today, and further led to the corporate takeover of the U.S. Capitol.
Again, many groups knew that this was happening, but due to the corporate control of the media, this agenda or this takeover was never heard about in the mainstream media. Until the rise of the internet.
The internet still today exists as the free and open source voice of the people. Without the people of the world's ability to openly discuss what they believe or know to be fact, then the only way people would hear their news is on the television, newspapers, or magazines. The internet is the biggest threat to the corporate agenda of any major advancement in human technology in the last fifty years.
There can be no distortion of facts as to what's going on in the world, because the people of the regions, are there, and can themselves blog and distribute information at an ultra-rapid pace over the internet. The corporations in America, and elsewhere around the world, feel this threat of the internet. No more can they force their hand in the government spreading lies, without the people questioning their role.
George W. Bush is a prime example of this. Regardless of what you may or may not believe as to the source behind the 9/11 attacks within America, George W. Bush used the feelings from within America to strike into a corporate target of the world, Iraq. The future oil distribution and investments in Iraq for the next 100 years, could lead any specific American corporation with their hand in the process, to extreme financial gain.
George W. Bush told the people, at first that Iraq had "Weapons of Mass Destruction", and they bought it. After a period of bloodshed and war, the people question the reason, and the internet showed them the reality of the death and decay which was going on in Iraq. Then he told the people, it was to "liberate the country", and it continued. The internet countered, showing thousands of men, women, and children of whom were innocent casualties in the war. You could see people who were now fighting the U.S., because they lost their whole families during the U.S. strike on Iraq, not because they were some radicalized people chanting "Death To America".
The people of America were tired, tired of being lied to. Tired of struggling to exist while the government spent hundreds of billions of dollars on a war based upon false premises, voted out a party of power which had threatened to shut down the rights of the people, in order to please the corporations pulling the strings behind the scenes.
Again the people of America were lied to, promised "Change" amongst other guidelines, which stated they could and would eventually lead a prosperous and free life that the founding fathers of America envisioned for them. They waited, and this change never happened. America is still fighting these wars based upon false premises, and our rights are still being stripped from us.
Now, to censor the opposition, a new war has arisen by the hands of the corporations. An attempted takeover of the internet. The voice of the people, shut down, controlled, regulated, and monopolized by the corporations. How brilliant a plan, from the media ran behemoths of America.
They started by stating that they could legally obtain one's browsing history, seize their computers, and access their connection logs to attempt to prevent or investigate "possible terrorist ties". An America shocked by the attacks to the country and fearing another strike, agreed willingly as the government took these powers.
Then they stated that file sharing was harming the entertainment industry, and strict attempt to block certain protocols from being used or from openly being used without regulation. This is ongoing, and is the second piece on the chess-board by the U.S. Corporate agenda, to allow the world bodies to monitor certain protocols. It's a genius plot, the only downside is the people of the world will not stand by idly and let it happen.
Three of the last four technology and internet related bills to pass in the United States Congress, were related to file sharing. Three out of four of those bills, were strongly financed and supported by NBC, the same company which is attempting to merge with one of the Nation's largest internet service providers, Comcast. They realize, that by forcing the government to regulate the various protocols of the internet, that they can soon gain control over what types of information are shared online. The opposition however, claim that regulating or preventing the spread of information online, is an attempt to censor the people.
In many unilateral multi-national videos, the Pirate Parties of the world, have voiced their opposition to trade agreements, legislation, and the attempted monopolization of the internet. They do not retain a large control of the world governments, but they are surely trying to spread their message on the internet, so that the people of the world will have a wake up call as to what's really going on behind the scenes.
The forcing of certain protocols to be regulated by throttling of service, will only prevent the people from hearing mainstream opposition. This is a threat to our freedoms and a total threat to our privacy, as this allows the government to intertwine it's laws and openly "monitor" the usage of the internet of the people.
The United States Pirate Party knows this, and hopes that by spreading it's message against the merging of media giants, that it can prevent more corporate agenda from heading into the legislation in Washington. They also believe that when these giants merge, that it poses an even stronger threat to the various opposition voices of the people.
That's exactly what Comcast and NBC are planning to do, with one of the largest corporate mergers in United States history about to happen. NBC holds control of nearly 30 total television stations. Comcast, holds control of an approximate twenty stations of it's own. They both have investments in the automobile industry, the private sector of investment banking, and the oil industry.
The two of them merging would be as if in a world of only two leading pig parties, the two presidential swine which held control rolled around together in the mud-bath. That's exactly what the Pirate Party is attempting to stop. Have a look at their new video along with TheFreePress, about the prospects of the future Comcast/NBC merger, and the effects it could have on the freedoms of the people:
This planned merger, will raise a great number of AntiTrust issues for the new found company, as well as ensure that opposition opinion will not be heard on the already giant network branches of the two companies. The new behemoth offspring of the two companies, would give them extreme leverage over the competition. This is something that in America, we call a Monopoly. It's not something that is supposed to be allowed according to United States law, but little voicing of opposition is being heard due to the control in which NBC retains over many politicians.
The ones whom are voicing opposition, the Pirate Party of the United States, are relatively unknown. If the people hear their message, chances are they will support them. The U.S. Pirate Party wants you to hear their message, and to distribute it to everyone you know. By doing this, you not only raise awareness about corporate takeover, but the threats to the rights of the people, which are being taken away by corporations such as NBC/Comcast. We cannot allow this to happen, not in a "free world".

|Thats the 7th sign!!! LOL Skrew 2012...this would be the beginning of the end!!|
|Thanks for the article OBS going to share this one.|
|Wow thats crazy! Thanks for the read OBS.|

|In Australia we have (or maybe had - whoever knows) laws that disallow a company or individual to have a controlling seat (ie voting member of the board) of individual companies that have media rights in television and or/ radio, and/or internet simultaneoulsy. In fact the advent of those aformentioned laws are what made Rupert Murdoch relilnquish his Australian citizenship and go to America. True Story! Does America have laws similar to the above? Can it be argued that such a dual interest will be too much control of the media as a whole.|
Secondly, and this is what truly amazes me, Microsoft was separated into its two separate trading entities quite simply because the US Senate decided that one company had such a controlling share of the hardware and software markets (basically controlling the internet with Explorer) and therefore too much control of the household PC, so the US Senate forced Microsoft to demerger into two or more companies. Which strangely enough resulted in such an influx of cash that Bill Gates has now retired and is concentrating on his charity and other works.
So how can the US government on one hand enforce a company to separate due to too much control, yet allow the merger of two corporate entities such as ComCast and NBC which will in effect do what they supposed stated was illegal a little over a decade ago? Where is the logic in that? Or the continuation of the law! There is a precident for the disallowing of such a merger quite simply by the Senate's behavoiur in the past.
Is there anyway a ground swell of awareness can be created in order to educate the people as to what is happening? Can someone maybe contact the other TV networks and get them onto the case. Surely they would want to launch action against such a merger as it will decimate their viewing audience. Then the various TV networks can contract sitting members and maybe get some action. Any politician in the opposing government always wants his face on TV. I don't know - it's just an idea.
As always xxxOBSCENExxx a brilliant article. Thanks for keeping us informed - and please keep doing so. I am sure that once many more people hear about this there will be a ground swell to action.

|"These issues obviously are not confined to the US. In the UK we were lead blindly by the hand by our politicians into the illegal war in Iraq with you. We were aware there was more chance of having a visit by a friendly Martian wanting to borrow a cup of sugar than finding WMD in Iraq." LOL The UK was lead into war by the US not our politicians most of them where against the war but we entered it because tony blair was too scared to say NO to the US,who in turn only went to war in iraq for oil not WMD's like they promised where there.Everyone involed in that war should be tried for war crimes.|

|Thanks Obs for the wake-up call. I have stated it before, the only way to fight these guys is to be 100% pirate. Don't watch TV. download. Don't watch movies. download. Don't buy software. download. try to get all your bandwidth from outside Hotels, coffee shops, restaurants etc. therefore you can try to get by on the smallest internet offer. The less money these guys have the less they have to bribe and coerce the government. I will practice what I preach AFTER I go see avatar on Imax3D...(If I was younger I would try and sneak in so they don't get my cash, but I would be to embarrassed to get caught lol)|
|how long before people realize that trying to fight the forces of freemasonry is nigh on impossible, the whole of the western world is controlled and managed by the masons in various disguises, this is just an example of it. Despite "the people" objecting to it, i bet the merger goes ahead. The free masons have no master plan as such, (re Dan Brown ), but the masons influence reaches into every aspect of government and business you can think of, and a word here and there is usually enough for the masons to get their own way. The powers that be allow pirating because it increases the skillbase of the population, pirates will continue to thrive because there is no way that the commercial world can compete with the skill of pirates, its almost like an insurgency (re afganistan), most uploaders and rippers have good jobs within the industry, and can then run rings round the officials in charge.|
Edinburgh, Scotland is the home of world free masonry, the whole city was built by them, but you wont hear them proclaim it, nearly every building carries some sort of masonry insignia. Adam Smith (Wealth of Nations writer, which the whole western worlds free market ethos was based on) was a secret mason, and from America to England the scottish freemasons have managed to gain control of the reins of power, just have a look at how many scots signed the declaration of independance and this will show the influence the scots have managed to gain.
|well it goes to show you, how much Comcast wants to be the biggest entity in existence.|
|@ asbo.......Scotland is known as Rome's Special Daughter, and has been for about 500 years, thats because the Vatican knows where the REAL power base lies, within the scottish freemason movement, which controls and governs the rest of the lodges and branches of the freemason movement worldwide. Ex President George Bush was known to hold breakfast prayer meetings at 5.30 am in the white house, copying the masonry ethics on responsible governship. One year after leaving Downing Street, Tony Blair was baptised as a Catholic, after attending "breakfast prayer meetings" for 3 years. Little wonder then that the two most powerfull men in the world at the time had no problems convincing each other that an invasion of iraq was justifiable.......both are probably elite masons.|
Scottish FreeMason's are the real power, and the vatican knows it, and probably calludes with them.
Make your own mind up, but i am convinced, cases like Gods Banker (google it), just proves how far the masons have got and how much they are prepared to protect thier human investments within the vatican
|And any 2012 doom mongers lay off.........the date in the mayan calender refers to rebirth, not death. This is widely held to mean a new age, we are at the end of the industrial age and at the beginning of the technology age, so go and spew your "the world is going to end" at someone who cares.|

|great article but as an American the only thing that would scare me is if all these large corporations decide to put enuf money up o get congress to call for a Constitutional congress and change the US Constitution .Until that day life will go on as normal but trust me with 300,000 registered hunters, thats just hunters not gun owners here in the state of Pennsylvania and thats just 1 state out of 50 that may have a few words or should i say bullets to say about changing our way of life for a few rich pole smokers who think they can do what ever they want.|

|OMG OBS, I agree with everything you said.Especially "For the people, By the people". This government has lost it's goddamned mind. Presidents don't run this country, corporations, lobbyists(they've got to be stopped) and financial institutions do. DOWN WITH NEW WORLD ORDER. The proof is this trainwreck Health care reform, which is only going to benefit insurance companies. We will still be uninsured. The wealthiest country in the world. Shame on you Washington. Once again you failed us. Anyway here's an idea boycott comcast. $34 billion in profit, I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore. Cancel your bloody cable NOW! You know what, that will never happen, because they've injected the drug and the people can't get off of it. I don't watch TV, nor do I even have one, but I do have a computer and watch what I want to watch, when I want, not what the media tries forcefeeding us. I feel like throwing up, I need a good comedy, which I will search for while I still can. Thank You Very Much OBS. I know you do a lot of research. Sorry I got a little carried away.|
|Does anything these massive companies do really affect the consumer, you will still have your cable tv at the end of the day, we only have to worry when they start proscribing content and views, I think there are still enough intelligent people in the USA to veto any attempt at controlling content and political views, although current networks have a lot to answer for in biased political reporting, and letting non political groups advertise on behalf of your 2 main political parties. America has a problem and its called the Constitution, a 2 party state can do nothing but argue the extremes, and taking almost a year to pass a bill just shows how much these overpaid idiots cant work together. Your political parties are based on the idea of personality, All hail the Chief says it all, maybe you need a Prime Minister to handle Congess and the Senate on domestic issues and the President for all other duties. Would make passing bills a lot easier, and domestic issues could then be handled with a lot more decorum than they are now. |
Just look at the media companies and how much profit they make from advertising on political issues within america, its in the billions, how can we protect the consumer from interests like that i have no idea.
Unless America reforms Congress and the Senate, and how they do business, they will find it increasingly difficult to work together to produce bills fit for the American People.
Land of the Free,...yeah right, 34 different levels of law enforcment, from your humble county sheriff, to your black ops cia agent, America is one paraniod beast.
The People's Representive...yeah right, your state governer, senator, and congressman would rather sit and listen to a sponsered lobbiest than to a tax payer...says it all really
|iwillkillall.......started computing in early 80's on the famous bbc micro, programming games for the school computer club, now working as a freelance journalist producing the internet fanzine techmonster, which is only available to those in the know.|
"We at techmonster believe that the internet isone of the most powerfull forces known to mankind, information before the internet was expensive to obtain, and therefore only the rich had access to it. Now everyone able to connect to it can match even the richest in obtaining information, so use this powerfull force, and dont let anyone take away your right to use it"
|Thxs OBS 4 perspective once agian .The American society, is who sleeps thru a dailey life being monopalized by the "General Media" cannot begin to realize what is happening in their daily Lives. Most of the population just prods on ,without, understanding the rights which are being taking away at a nations expense daily. We have become a herd being led to the slaugher without understanding the process that is taken place. Most Americains, just pay their bills and continue to feed the conglomarate corparatons not even knowing how their money is affecting the state of the growing dilemia of our future,plus their childrens future. The largest problem affecting American society is ,We the People, Do not take the time out to really understand the basic funadamentals of how our goverment works. We have beccome a powerless word in the mass majority within the society which we believe in. The internet does offer the opportunity for us all to speak, though most are just silent entities, which just bury their heads in th ground (ostrirch).I say thank you to Obs ,for giving the the time, for posting information which affects, not only our individaul lives, but society as a whole worldwide.|

Secondly, why do so many people have this belief that "the people are asleep?"
