Over a year ago I laid out various military strategies that might be waged upon us in a Propaganda or Information War. The importance of the use of psychological warfare can not be overestimated–if your goal is to suppress people, and create a totalitarian regime.
To weaken a country, or a people, one looks to break the solidarity of the people, and to sabotage their ability to think and reason. Once the target group is rendered impotent in terms of reason and logic, they are ripe for the taking.
Two tactics are used by everyone in Propaganda. You will recognize both.
The first is: the lie told often enough becomes the truth. That is why incessant hammering by the Media on the population has caused people to not be able to differentiate between a lie and a truth, between a fact and an opinion. It is the repetition of message–done almost verbatim–that eventually overwhelms one’s mind. Soon, you find yourself doubting your own reality. Or, worse yet, repeating what you heard and embracing it as truth. The lie told often enough becomes the truth.
I think we all can identify a plethora of that phenomena. But, the second one is equally deadly. Both of these tactics by the way were embraced by Hitler, and subsequent totalitarians. They knew they had to override the normal decent nature of people. Mind control done through drip drip propaganda did the trick.
Here’s the second, and I encourage everyone to really pay attention! It renders even the truth-teller almost impotent. Here it is: Tell a truth so outrageous it is dismissed as a lie. You can tell a truth about some dastardly thing you are going to do, and have it be so outrageous in its concept that the mind of good people dismisses it summarily. Then, with them not paying any attention to it, you go ahead and follow through with what you said.
You could also be someone who discovers an outrageous truth, and articulates it to warn folks. But, it is dismissed or vilified immediately, and your communication now falls on deaf ears.
One tactic wants open ears to the point you embrace the lie. And the other wants closed ears so you dismiss and ignore the truth. Either one opens the door to some terrible mischief.
We are living through the latter tactic right now. Two days ago, President Trump and his legal team told the nation a truth so outrageous the Media and politicians piled on, eviscerated it, and tossed it and the messengers into the trash.
That “truth” so outrageous it is causing even the most fair-minded to reel? So hard to look at, let alone accept? The assertion that our election and the precious ballots which represent the will of the people have been corrupted by machines from a foreign dictatorship, by software developed to look normal, but to cheat when needed, by real-time monitors who can surreptitiously change results, and those ballots are being counted and stored on servers–not in the United States–but in Barcelona and Frankfurt!
Now, that is outrageous! That is crazy, you say. Be careful here. Most Americans have already been compromised by “the lie told often enough.” By default, that makes it much harder to discern an opposing “truth.”
Slow down here, my friends. Don’t be too quick to judge, or dismiss. Don’t turn a blind eye. These machines have been used for several years now. I wonder how many other elections–local, state, or federal–have had a remote potential?
The reason I want you to slow down–even though it is terrifying–is this. Yesterday, the Trump team stated the “truth.” They were promptly vilified over and over and over again. Yet, here’s the kicker. Today, just 24 hours later, the Dominion Elections machine execs failed to come to a Pennsylvania state hearing to discuss the machines. 24 hours ago they asserted loudly their innocence, saying the machines are great, and not capable of doing what is alleged. They said there was no software connection with Smartmatic, and it is absurd to think ill of them. They said they wanted to come and explain their side of it, explain the reality so we all could understand and feel good about our election.
But today, they no-showed the hearing. They lawyered up, and under advice of counsel, decided it was best to just keep their mouths shut. That’s good legal advice, but it sure does not reassure us. It is reported also, although I can not verify this yet, that they closed their offices and deleted their Linked In profiles etc.
Now, by anyone’s definition, that is suspicious. Too bad we are talking about the election of the President of the United States, and not a local election for dog catcher!
(By the way, this same exact phenomena occurred with Fusion GPS, its owner Glenn Simpson, and “I take the 5th” testimony. Ultimately that company, the DNC, and Clinton campaign–this is all documented, undisputed public record now–gave us the Steele Dossier, the Russia Collusion Hoax, and the Mueller Investigation. And every one who tried to sound the alarm on that company was vilified. A truth so outrageous…)
Your future lives depend now on us not rushing to judgment on Trump Team’s claims or evidence. This will prove true or not true. My hunch? It is true. And God help us all if they pull this off, and get away with altering the outcome of the presidential election in the United States of America. This should not be a party thing.
Think about that. And, then think about this: Who really hired and sent them?
I was asked recently how it felt to be living inside one of my own novels. Well, sadly, we all are living inside this one. I would rather write novels about such perfidy, not live through it personally. So, that is what I am going to do.
Meanwhile, let the legal, rule of law, constitutional rights issues play out. Do not rush, lest you find out too late that this “outrageous truth” is actually just “truth.”
