The following post chronicles the courageous reporting and highly revealing videos of CBS46 investigative reporter Ben Swann who was the leading US mainstream media reporter exposing US government and mainstream media lies about the wars on Syria, Iraq and Libya. He also achieved infamy for his 2013 interview with US President Barack Obama where he was the first reporter who questioned the president of the United States on the CIA providing weapons to terrorist groups in Syria. As he was gaining ascendency in the public eye in the 2016 post election environment he suddenly went ‘dark’, deleted all of his social media accounts and stopped reporting on highly controversial subject matter such as the US backed terrorist ‘rebels’ in newly liberated Aleppo, Syria, and US support for terrorists across the Middle East, as well as the highly controversial issue of Pizzagate which sprang forth due to the October 2016 Wikileaks release of the John Podesta emails.
Days after his Pizzagate story was released, Ben Swann suddenly announced that he had to suspend all of his projects, the most important of which was a story on the US government’s involvement in the creation of ISIS. He released a statement saying: “Heading back to CBS46 Monday but going to be changes. Biggest one, this page will go dark Tzuday, Feb 1st. Those who know me, trust me.”
The attached image to Ben’s post had a tiny rebel or resistance logo from Star Wars, only a few pixels wide. Within minutes that post was deleted and almost immediately after another identical post was made without the resistance logo. The non-logo social media posts are cached here.
In early 2017, after the above posts and Tweets he was only seen once on CBS46 where his mic was off, thus, no one could hear him speaking. He was completely off-the-radar for the following two months. Immediately after his “shutdown”, his massive fanbase did some digging, as they knew he would not accidentally misspell “Tuesday” as “Tzuday”, especially since February 1st was not actually a Tuesday…..but instead, was a Wednesday. Researching fans looked into Sun Tzu’s “Art of War” and cross referenced phrases related to “dark” and located the following quote: “Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt”. Now it is widely believed that Ben knew what he was up against (after all he has a young family to support) and he went into temporary hiding, or played along with his station bosses for the time being for the sake of his career and family income.
But as there was no contact with him, many presumed him possibly fallen victim to something more nefarious. After all, his website was shut down and all of his YouTube videos suddenly deleted. CBS46’s link on his profile on his website then took viewers to a fake FB page for him including only a picture of his face. His personal FB page was deleted, as well as his Twitter account. The only evidence that he had ever created any reporting on the aforementioned controversial issues are now mirror copies on other peoples YouTube accounts scattered across the Internet along with mentions and links of his content on threads and blogs. Even an image search for the tiny resistance logo Ben put up on his earlier “going dark” post was incredibly difficult to find. (Huge thanks to Sean Slomka credited at the end of this post for tracking down the image and additional material for this post.)
Note the additional small rebel logo below the date of Feb 1, 2017 in the image below.
In April 2017 Ben was reporting again for CBS46, however, when he returned to air he made no mention of the reason’s for his hiatus, and he reported only on primarily everyday matters that are more inline with most US mainstream ‘programming’. It appears likely that Ben was “muffled” and most likely told by higher-ups at CBS to drop the controversial subject matter that threatens the status quo or risk losing his job permanently, and thus, seriously affecting his family.
On April 1, 2017, the Anti-Media website and Facebook page released this linked video of Ben Swann, however, they mention in the comments below the video report on America’s tax system that it was filmed in 2016 and released by them, while also stating also that he will be back soon.
Ben is now regularly working as an anchor at CBS46, albeit his reports are incredibly toned down compared to his previous groundbreaking geopolitical reporting.
The videos below feature Ben’s most important work relating to the lies being put forth by the mainstream media and US government in regards to the Syrian war. They are accumulated from You Tube accounts where wise researchers cached Ben’s material. It is truly an impressive body of work by a real fighter for the truth and humanity who deserves accolades for bringing the truth to light in America…….and throughout the World. Ben Swann truly represents the best of the American journalism profession.
Ben’s 2013 reporting on Syria highlights how ahead of the pack he truly was as he highlights the nefarious actions of traitor to the United States and humanity John McCain…
Ben’s interview with President Barack Obama showed his true desire to help expose the lies of war and US support for terrorist groups. No other reporter throughout the entire country was brave enough to put forth questions to the President of the United States like Ben did.
Ben’s coverage of the CIA lies about Russian hacking of the US election in 2016 were ground breaking due to his extensive knowledge of what the US had really been up to with FSA terrorists in Syria in comparison to Russian actions of really wiping out ISIS and their affiliated terrorist groups.
Ben’s reporting on Pizzagate was the first legitimate MSM discussion of the highly controversial subject of child molestation by high level politico’s which was initially revealed through the Podesta emails which were leaked by Wikileaks in late October 2016 during the last weeks run up to the U.S. Election.
The actual Wikileaks controversial emails, links and discussion on the subject of Pizzagate are here:
Ben Swann Truth in Media Facebook page is a site set up by Ben Swann supporters to cover all matters related to Ben after his own social media sites were shut down:
Bens coverage of the Benghazi, Libya ordeal in 2012 was where he first started to gain real extensive nationwide fame. Its seems that his station manager was fine with this type of reporting at that time (possibly because Benghazi was a sided political issue). In 2017 there is some small evidence that he had become too politically revealing and thus was no longer allowed to dig too deep with his investigative reporting.
The “Ben Swann Truth in Media” Facebook page is a site set up by Ben Swann supporters to cover all matters related to Ben after his own social media sites were shut down –
The above Facebook link will lead you to current information on Ben and his reporting for CBS46.
The following screen captured image provides some insight into why Ben was silenced in regards to reporting on heavily controversial subject matter that highlights the crimes of the global elite (Examples: Syrian war lies, FSA terrorist supplied by the US, ISIS receiving US weapons, Pizzagate- as revealed in the Wikileaks Podesta emails).
It is highly likely that the following screenshot reveals what really took place regarding Ben’s ability to report the truth. Controversial propagandist, sheep-herder and MSM gate-keeper David Brock at Media Matters has initiated a campaign to silence truth-seekers like Ben by going after advertisers and threatening to reduce station revenue.
The following videos and screenshots highlight additional excellent in-depth research and reporting that Ben Swann was conducting prior to his “muffling”.
This August 2012 video exposes the real theft and deception related to the US Federal Reserve System and its initial establishment at the Jekyll Island meeting in 2013.
Off topic: For readers interested in more on the establishment of the U.S. Federal Reserve System please see my Clarity of Signal post on globalist banker Paul Warburg and how he played the lead role in getting the Federal Reserve bank and system off the ground. This is an eye-opening post due to the fact that Paul Warburg was also the man that established the US Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in 1920 and he was also the CEO of I.G. Farben’s US branch (The German war machine / largest company in the world) when he died in 1932. The above video,once again highlights Ben’s bravery as he enters into territory that most U.S. media would never touch.
Below is Ben’s excellent 2015 report on the CIA origins of ISIS……Note that in this report Ben highlights that the leading FSA general of the Northern Front in Syria states that unless western governments send more weapons the FSA (comprised of dozens of terror groups) would lose the war in less than a month. Ben includes his interview with President Obama and presents the question as to why the U.S. would fund the so called ‘rebels’. Obama in his response states that they would only supply ‘non-lethal’ support, which of course, turned out to be completely untrue, as Ben highlights that these weapons ended up in the hands of ISIS fighters intertwined with the US backed Free Syrian Army.
The following images highlight how far ahead of the curve Ben’s reporting was……shown in chronological order they paint a picture that clearly exposes US government corruption and support for terrorists in Syria. For this work Ben Swann truly deserves a medal…..he is a great humanitarian……..and a great American. Exposing war lies and government corruption is the most noble thing any of us can do. Real patriotism requires dissent when one sees that their government is acting criminally.
Even though Ben is no longer reporting on these incredibly important subjects shown above, it is important to remember that he has laid the necessary and vital ground work while setting a stellar example for others to seek out the truth. Many people are waiting for a hero to arrive and lead the way in the current geopolitical unknown terrain. I think that We The People should strive to be the hero’s we seek. We should follow Ben’s example and keep his work alive.
Please download, save and copy his videos above, reupload them to video sharing sites and make sure to share them with your friends and family. That is how we change the world………through the mind of one caring person at a time. Follow Ben’s example: You are the hero and the change you seek. The new age of citizen journalism needs you now ……..it needs us working together. Help wake others up. Many can’t see it, but there is a global awakening taking place as the crimes of the global elite that profit from war are revealed more and more each day. Have hope………we are winning.
I wanted to include a simple gift and tribute to Ben and his family, and to what America is supposed to represent. Its 48 minutes of beautiful adventure on the John Muir trail with some nice music, and it captures the spirit, beauty and wonder of America in all its beautiful natural glory. Here’s a memorial day tribute to Ben Swann……..
