Just when you think the media has sunk as low as it can go, BOOM, they manage to make even those of us that have been documenting their antics, shakes our heads in amazement.
BRIEF RECAP ON TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME
Trump announces Presidency. Media laughs, selectively edits his comments on Mexico, declares his candidacy dead before it even begins. Trump starts rising in the polls, the MSM lies and attacks, and declares his campaign dead almost on a daily basis. Trump rises in the polls, even the skewed ones, and starts knocking off 16 GOP primary opponents. The media freaks out and publishes content 91 percent negative on Trump. Trump rises in the polls against Hillary Clinton. Media, washes, rinses and repeats their attacks while screaming about inaccurate polls showing Trump has no chance against Clinton, while the majority publicly endorse Clinton for president. Trump wins the 2016 Presidential election.
That is when the media started losing whatever was left of their minds. They cried openly live on-air on election night. Shock came next that they lost in their campaigning against him. After Trump's inauguration, the media stopped even trying to report accurate news, and started spreading outright fake news (which they are still doing as evidenced by last week's utter humiliation in regards to the Florida high school shooter.)
There, caught up. Good. Now, we see that Trump Derangement Syndrome suffered by the majority of liberal media outlets, has reached a new level of crazy, and how they are blatantly attempting to brainwash the masses with a "pseudo-reality," so insane, it is almost like we are now living in the Twilight Zone.
MEDIA BLATANTLY BRAINWASHES THE MASSES
One more reminder from April 2017: A memo titled "POTUS & Political Warfare," written by former director of strategic planning at the National Security Council, Rich Higgins, rocked Washington. Before becoming director of strategic planning for the NSC, Higgins was an Army veteran and a former Pentagon official who specialized in irregular warfare.
In his memo, Higgins detailed "information campaigns designed to first undermine, then delegitimize and ultimately remove the President," calling it "political warfare at an unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a seated president through manipulation of the news cycle."
On page 6 of that 7-page memo, Higgin's explains how the media is used to brainwash the masses, by pushing "pseudo-realities," in a campaign to "delegitimize President Trump," with preferred narratives including the "Russia hacked the election", "Obstruction of Justice", "Hiding Collusion", and "Putin Puppet." (Entire 7-Page memo on April 2017 ANP article)
To this day, we still see liberals and the media pushing almost all those points, that is how successful the brainwashing and mind control campaign upon the public was, and below, we will show how the media has converged on a different dangerous and reckless narrative regarding Russia, now that their "collusion" narrative has crumbled after the Mueller indictments which highlighted there was no collusion with Russia on the part of the Trump campaign or any American.
Over this past weekend, the new phrase members of the media and liberals are attempting to program into the heads of other liberals to push onto the public is PEARL HARBOR, the new "pseudo-reality," the MSM is repetitiously stating over and over again to get Americans to "associate" Russian Internet trolls with an "act of war," comparable to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
CNN has compared Russian election interference to Pearl Harbor multiples times by different people on air and on social media.
Karen Tumulty at Washington Post wrote a column, sharing it on social media with the message, "My latest: Imagine how history would have judged Franklin D. Roosevelt in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, if he had taken to the radio airwaves to declare that Tokyo was “laughing their asses off." Tumulty also made sure she pushed the other "pseudo-reality" catch-phrase out in another tweet, specifying the term "act of war. She tweeted "There was no loss of life or destruction of a city in the Russian actions described in the indictment. But it was an act of war nonetheless, a sneak attack using 21st-century methods."
Matthew Dowd of ABC News, didn't use the term Pearl Harbor, but did reference the 1941 attack, calling Russia's Online trolling an "act of war," stating "The Russians committed an act of war against our democracy. If Trump were President on Dec. 7, 1941: “Japan started building aircraft carriers long before I became President, and they haven’t attacked any of my resort properties. What we should really be focused on is Wilkie"
On MSNBC, Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler and long-time Clinton aide Philippe Reines, both compared the Russian troll farm, buying ads on social media and trolls different platforms, to... yup, you guessed it.... Pearl Harbor.
Glenn Greenwald over at The Intercept highlights how liberals are demanding punishment, but none want to actually offer up what punishment they think fits their own narrative, because "sanctions" against Russia seems so mild if these liberals and the media truly believe their own rhetoric in comparing Russian social media trolling in an attempt to sow discord, to an "act of war," and specifically comparing it to Pearl Harbor.
At the very least, no politician or pundit should be able to get away with issuing rhetoric of this type without being required to specify what they think ought to be done. Here, for instance, is Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, doing his best 2002 impression of Bill Kristol, decreeing in a predictably viral tweet that all patriotic Americans are duty-bound to focus on the question of what we should do to “punish Russia”
Note, though, that Todd himself neglects to specify what “punishment” he advocates. This is reckless rhetoric of the most irresponsible kind: demanding that everyone agree that “punishment” toward Russia is warranted (upon pain of being found guilty of bad citizenship), while failing to specify what punishment would be just, warranted and rational. To do that is to deliberately beat the drums of war, cultivate an atmosphere of belligerence and aggression, without any limits or notions of proportionality.
That’s exactly what is being done by those who keep declaring the U.S. to be “at war” with Russia, and especially those who invoke the worst attacks in U.S. history when doing so, all while refusing to state what they think should be done in response. It’s simultaneous reckless and cowardly.
Yes, things he said!
THE REAL ACT OF WAR - ILLEGAL ALIENS COMMIT THE SAME CRIMES THE RUSSIAN TROLLS DID
The whole Pearl Harbor narrative by the mainstream media, in an attempt to program and brainwash the masses, is easily countered.
They started this coordinated Political Warfare campaign after Friday's news of Robert Mueller indicting 13 Russians, who will never stand trial because we do not have an extradition treaty with Russia, but a look at the indictment and the DOJ press release about the indictment, brings up another analogy, one the liberal media and Democrats are not going to be very happy with, because it shows Democratic collusion with foreign agents that have committed the same exact crimes that Robert Mueller just indicted 13 Russians of.
Two of the defendants allegedly traveled to the United States in 2014 to collect intelligence for their American political influence operations.
To hide the Russian origin of their activities, the defendants allegedly purchased space on computer servers located within the United States in order to set up a virtual private network. The defendants allegedly used that infrastructure to establish hundreds of accounts on social media networks such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, making it appear that the accounts were controlled by persons within the United States. They used stolen or fictitious American identities, fraudulent bank accounts, and false identification documents. The defendants posed as politically and socially active Americans, advocating for and against particular political candidates. They established social media pages and groups to communicate with unwitting Americans. They also purchased political advertisements on social media.
The press release also lists the actual criminal counts the 13 Russians were indicted for as "The indictment includes eight criminal counts. Count One alleges a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States, by all of the defendants. The defendants allegedly conspired to defraud the United States by impairing the lawful functions of the Federal Election Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Department of State in administering federal requirements for disclosure of foreign involvement in certain domestic activities.
Count Two charges conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud by Internet Research Agency and two individual defendants. Counts Three through Eight charge aggravated identity theft by Internet Research Agency and four individuals."
It also asserts that at one point in July 2016, the project employed about 80 people.
If Democrats and the media are going to say these 13 individuals, along with their 80 employees, committed an "act of war" that is comparable to Pearl Harbor, then we have to ask, is it not also an "act of war" that millions of illegal aliens within America commit "aggravated identity theft" when they steal Americans social security numbers and identities?
Or when they "posed as politically and socially active Americans, advocating for and against particular political candidates," attending protests and rallies, and candidate events with the goal of "influencing elections?"
Or when they have millions (vs the hundreds the Russians had) accounts on social media networks such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and organize and participate in political events, rallies or protests?
What about their "fraudulent bank accounts," created using false identification documents?'
Using the logic the media is using with their attempt to associate some Russian troll farm with an "act of war" as bad as Pearl Harbor, every single illegal alien that has false identification documents and has used them to open bank account, have committed bank fraud and wire fraud if they ever transfer that money, anywhere. Every single illegal alien within America is a foreign agent, and any political activity they participate in with the goal to "influence" American election, should be indicted.
This means every single Democratic politician in charge of a sanctuary city is also "colluding" with those foreign agents in committing an "act of war" against America.
If liberals and the media and Democrats want to call 80+ Russians trolling online to "sow discord" within America, an "act of war," comparable to Pearl Harbor, then what exactly do they call it when millions of foreigners are still within America doing the very same things those Russians did?
Using liberal logic, that means illegal aliens in America are committing an act of war even worse than what Pearl Harbor was.
In their attempt to brainwash Americans into repeating the claim that a Russian troll farm to influence public opinion online is an actual act of war, they have opened a can of worms they could very well come to regret.
They really shouldn't have gone there.
February Note to Readers - If we make it through March when we start seeing the revenue generated by the new ad network, we may just have a chance to turn big techs' bias back against them and come through this stronger, louder and more powerful, together. February 2018 has been the most brutal month yet due to the censorship we have been battling against this past year, so any extra readers may be able to spare for donations is greatly appreciated.
