- Newsweek's June 5 cover story "Rethinking
the Marriage Crunch" is typical of the psychological war waged on
society by the mass media.
- Newsweek magazine waited 20 years to
retract a 1986 story that educated 40-year-old women have "as much
chance of marrying as being killed by a terrorist," although they
knew it was bogus. The story became part of popular culture, mentioned
in movies and television, causing many women to panic.
- In December 1986, Neil Bennett, a co-
author of the study, "Marriage Patterns in the United States."
told the New York Times that Newsweek took the findings out of context.
- He said the odds climbed sharply if one
removed women who choose to remain single, those who favor a live-in relationship
or sequential relationships and those who cannot marry for physical reasons.
The sampling was also limited to women born in the mid-1950's. In other
words, these women were about 30 at the time and there was no way to know
what their marriage prospects would be in 10 years.
- (NY Times "Relationships:
When Studies Mislead.")
- In 2000, Discover Magazine termed this
study one of the "20 Greatest Blunders in Science in the last 20 Years."
Newsweek promises to tell, "why we were wrong" but doesn't. On
the contrary, the magazine uses this "rethinking" to mislead
women /yet again/, by suggesting they can safely postpone marriage. They
base this "news" on Census information that has been /around
for ten years!/
- "Twenty years later, the situation
looks far brighter," says reporter Joe McGinn, oozing good will like
any salesman. "The good news is that older singles who desire a spouse
appear to face far kinder odds nowadays. When the Census last crunched
the numbers in 1996, a single woman at 40 had a 40.8 per cent chance of
eventually marrying. Today those odds are probably even higher..."
the Marriage Crunch")
- The new story is as phoney as the first.
The 40.8% chance figure was lifted from Table 3 of a 20-page study on marriage
released in 2002 based on the 1996 census. The table shows that only 8.6%
of women have never married by age 40, and by age 50 this number has dropped
to 5%. Thus /Newsweek/ made the calculation (3.6 into 8.6 = 40.8) and acted
like this was the finding of a new survey. According to this table, another
15% get married by 60 so /Newsweek/ could easily have said that women 40
and over have a 55.8% chance of marrying. For obvious reasons, McGinn didn't
answer my query as to how he arrived at his numbers.
- This spectacle demonstrates how the media
concocts "news" stories that have a mind control purpose.
- The original /Newsweek /story said "new
demographic research" predicted white college educated woman of 30
had only a 20% chance of ever marrying; by 35 the probability dropped to
5%; and by 40, the probability was 2.6%. Therapists reported that many
women cited the story as a reason to rush into marriage. No doubt their
marriages were doomed to fail and the intense pressure made many of them
undesirable to men.
- Now the elite mind controllers have decided
to send a different message: Pursue career; postpone marriage; don't worry
about children. Wednesday, the central banker-owned media, including CNN
and the /Wall Street Journal/, was full of stories telling educated women
to put off marriage. "Not too late to meet Prince Charming After All,"
trumpeted (ABC News. "Educated
Women are Now More Likely to get Married.)"
- The poster girl for this new message
is a 49-year-old contractor Laurie Aronson who married a divorced man 10
years ago and became stepmother to his three children. Then "after
five years of infertility treatment" she had a son of her own.
- WHY IS THE MEDIA ATTACKING WOMEN?
- The mass media is the mind control instrument
of the central bankers who regard the US population as their property.
The family of Eugene Meyer, a Lazard Freres banker and former Fed Chairman,
controls Newsweek magazine. The central bankers, including the Rockefellers,
control the rest of the mass media through ownership or advertising. Their
agenda is to undermine the family in order to destabilize society and decrease
- In a memo, March 11, 1969, Frederick
S. Jaffe, Vice-president of Rockefeller-sponsored /Planned Parenthood
World Population/, outlined examples of proposed measures to reduce United
States fertility. Among the measures suggested are: 1) Restructure family:
a. *postpone or avoid marriage* and b. alter ideal family size. 2) Encourage
increased homosexuality. 3) Educate for family limitation. 4) Fertility
control agents in water supply. 5) Encourage women to work. (Emphasis mine.)
- Thanks to elite social engineering, the
US fertility rate has declined from 2.5 to 2 children per woman since 1970.
Significantly the fertility rate for non-Hispanic whites is 1.8 in the
US. In Europe and Canada, it is 1.5 or less.
- If the media were on our side, Newsweek/
/would recognize that women's most fertile years are 18-25 and would be
promoting programs for women entering the work force in their 30's after
their children are in school. Instead the media pushes sex as totally separate
from reproduction, and downplays mature thinking about family and posterity.
- The elite agenda is to prevent women
from starting families by encouraging them to waste these years starting
a career and competing with men. By the time they are 30 and ready for
marriage and children, men are much less interested in them.
- As one female blogger lamented, "They
told us 'You can have it all, Marriage, children, a fantastic career!'
We have ourselves to blame for believing them."
- She notes, "women still strive to
marry up. Men still tend to marry down. The two sexes' going in opposite
directions has led to an epidemic of professional women missing out on
husbands and kids."
- She cites Sylvia Ann Hewlett, an economist
and the author of /"Creating a Life: Professional Women and the Quest
for Children,"/ (2002) who found that 55 percent of 35-year-old career
women were childless. Forty seven per cent of 40-something women with professional
degrees have no children. Only 14% of these women said they didn't want
- Aaron Russo, director of From Freedom
to Fascism, recalls he was approached for his ideas by a younger member
of the Rockefeller family in 1995. " He asked me what I thought of
the 'women's movement,' and I told him that I support equal opportunity,"
- "He looked at me and said, 'You
know, you're such an idiot in some ways. We' - meaning the people he works
with - 'created the women's movement, and we promote it. And it's not about
equal opportunity. It's designed to get both parents out of the home and
into the workforce, where they will pay taxes. And then we can decide how
the children will be raised and educated.' That's how they control society
- by removing the parents from the home and then raising the children as
the elitists see fit."
- More and more people are realizing that
something is fundamentally wrong with modern society. The truth is too
painful for most to accept.
- Our money is nothing but "credit"
extended by a private banking cartel based in the City of London called
"the Crown." (The names of the shareholders of the Bank of England,
the Fed etc. are kept secret.) They create this credit out of thin air
and back it with our taxes and interest. Modern history is the process
of translating this monopoly of credit into a monopoly of power. Globalization
means all nations and all minds will be colonized by this stateless financial
- This cartel is behind terrorism, feminism,
Communism, Zionism, most isms and all wars. Their agenda is to divide and
conquer. They need to destroy the four pillars of human identity (race,
religion, nation and family) in order to create their New World Order dictatorship.
- The bankers use the media to distract,
deceive and destabilize society while fostering the illusion of democracy
and freedom. The Newsweek cover story is classic psychological warfare.
The bankers perfected their techniques against Nazi Germany and put the
same experts in charge of their media empires.
- The bankers subscribe to Illuminism,
a pagan Luciferian creed. Scoundrels who literally have sold their souls
to the devil run the world. Their goal is to sever our connection to God
and block mankind's intended spiritual and material development. That is
why they promote decadence and dysfunction.
- As people become aware of the awful truth,
hopefully they will declare mental and spiritual independence and the diabolical
beast that /Newsweek /represents will choke on its own vomit.
