Propaganda is in full mode

MY INDEPENDENT WORD!

November 5, 2013

 

Propaganda is in full mode by the Obama government and his neo-marxist henchmen, with the aid of the adorning liberal media who refuse to print the whole truth for the public. They are masterful in their various uses of propaganda. In order for America to understand what is going on citizens must become efficient in looking through the fog of propaganda to see the real story. Therefore, I am printing on this web site a primer on Propaganda so that you will see the tricks that the Obama administration and the liberals in congress with the aid of the liberal news media are using to pull the wool over the publics eyes.

The Healthcare bill, cap and tax, and all the huge spending plans are all part of the big plan for America. This plan was stated by President Obama during his first campaign for the office of president. During that time Obama stated that there would be a huge change for America and he is now attempting to put the pieces of that plan into operation. However, a lot of that plan is hidden from view while vast amounts of propaganda is placed into the media so that citizens will be confused and under control while this plan is put into place by the liberal congress.

Citizens must stay alert because we will not recognize America after the socialists are finished with their plan!!! We must get out the vote in 2014 and make sure that the liberal democrats are not in office after we all vote. This means that we have to organize groups and educate ourselves about the various techniques of propaganda and use these techniques along with the techniques that were used by the neighborhood organizers.

Tea party groups are meeting in our city watch the paper for those meetings and make plans to attend. Remember if we set and do nothing then we will not win this battle for our country. The socialists have the means to turn this country into a modern day serfdom so make plans to get out the vote in 2014. Please contact me if you need help and tell people to check my web site.

Radical islamists

It is a known fact that all muslims are not radical islamists; however, there are enough that we must stay vigilant at all times! Several experts tell us that only 5% to 13% of all muslims are radical islamists; therefore, if you do the math then we are dealing with about 91 million terrorists!!! And to think that we were so concerned while only dealing with a religion of peace!

Many liberals would have you believe that Christians are the oppressors and muslims are the victims! I suggest that they talk to Egyptian Coptic Christians or Iraqi Christians! لعدة أشهر الإسلاميين المتشددين قد يقتلون “المسيحيين العراقيين” وقد اضطر طار إلى البلد أو يعانون من الموت. Which is Arabic and states “For several months radical islamists have been killing Iraqi Christians and they have been forced to flew the country or suffer death.” Egyptian Coptics have suffered similar violence from Egyptian muslims and even the police.

Christians in Turkey have also suffered from muslims but they remain diligent and continue their goal of telling the people there about Jesus Christ even though it definitely is dangerous for these heroic Christians. Christians in America should be proud of these missionaries who are fearless in their mission to spread the Word of God in a muslim country! Where are the voices of outrage in America? American Christians should pray to GOD for forgiveness for their lack of action in this persecution of fellow Christians! 

What is really important is the fact that the early Christian church in Turkey was based upon the early Christian word imparted when Paul and others passed through that area and many Christian churches were started as a result. Another important fact for Christians to realize is that the first Ecumenical Councils were made at Nicea (Iznik today) in the Marmara Region of Turkey, between Bursa and Istanbul. Also, the OrthodoxByzantineChurch was officially started in Turkey when the country was mainly muslim. The entire area, although now muslin, was once Christian and is important to the Christian church. Once the area was invaded by the Ottoman Empire the killings of Christians began and has not stopped.

A 2007 Pew Research Study shows that a small percentage of American Muslims effectively supported Osama Ben laden and his violent actions against non-belivers and since 2.1 million Muslims live in the United States that means there could be 117,500 supporters of violent terrorism if you use the Pew Research percentage of 5%.

What this really means is that there are many, many terrorists already here and we don’t know who they are and when they will strike next! The Lame Street Media only has good things to say about muslins and always prints the positive. WE need to stay alert and think positive about our heroes in the military because they are the only ones standing between us and the jihadists.   

The Lame Street Media only has good things to say about muslins and always prints the positive. In fact the muslims are presented as the religion of peace and goodwill, yet, the mass killing of Christians goes on in muslim countries with very little reporting by the lame street media! WE need to stay alert and think positive about our heroes in the military because they are the only ones standing between us and the jihadists.  

There is a way to defeat the islamists and that is by separating islamism from religion and begin to call it what it really is, a political ideology! A clear realization of the fact that islamism is an ideology and not a religion will help the whole question from a variety of difficulties. As stated by Mr. Mozaffari, who is Professor of Political Science at the University of Aarhus, Denmark, “In many ways, Islamism is like an octopus. We have to aim directly at the head in stead of wasting our time and energy to deal with the complicated body.  By evacuating religious contents from Islamism, we change our direction from theology to ideology, from religion to politics”. In this way, we put forward the real face and real nature of Islamism. The Muslims, especially among the young people, who are potentially ready to give their lives for the sake of Islamist ideals, will find out that their struggle is not a part of a religious duty but purely an ideological and political one emanating from a dangerous utopia”.

Mr. Mozaffari also states “During the past decades, repetitive experiences have showed that dialogue with islamists leads nowhere. Islamists consider dialogue a clear sign of weakness; their own weakness if they accept a dialogue, and especially weakness in their opponents. If dialogue or compromise is impossible and ineffective, what to do then? The answer is short and brutal: pressure! Pressure can be gradual or accumulated; but it must be real and sufficiently strong and consistent for Islamists to feel it as such. If the pressure has no positive effect– as it was the case with Taliban — war should not be excluded as a last resort”. Therefore, I again say that the only guard against the Jihadists will be our strong military! God bless them all!

The recent slaughter of a British soldier in Great Britain and the explosion in Boston could be coming to a city near you! What are you going to do? Are you going to believe what the Marxist Media tells you or are you going to believe what you see with your own eyes? Islamist jihadists are in a rage to kill all Americans, Christians, and Jews! The fact that no muslim has come forward to speak out about this evil action says volumes, which to me is agreement with this type of activity.

This is not a religion of peace and if you read the Muslim Texts then you will understand that this is an evil cult that is based upon hated and violence dating back to Abraham’s bastard child Ishmael.  There will be an end to this pathetic excuse for religion and then all will see who really is in charge!

A Journey to 2016

It is apparent that the Republican majority in the House of Representatives has much work that needs to done and many voices that are giving them direction. However, these new representatives need to only listen to the voice of the people and complete the job that the people elected them to do. If they listen to the other voices and try to accommodate those concerns then the voters will vote them out in 2014.

The first order of business should be to investigate everything that has been forced upon the American people by the liberal government and at the same time cut the purse strings on all the spending that occurred!  It is doubtful that everything that the house sends to the senate will get passed, however, that could and should become a 2014 election issue to use against the democrats.

The House republicans need to be very aware of what the democrats try to bate them with from their bag of tricks. Having been a member of the democrat party before my eyes were opened; I know the tricks they will try. The republicans need to stay focused and force the democrats to vote against the bills that get passed by the house! Because of the results of the 2010 election it may be that a large number of democrats will vote for these bills in order to save themselves in the 2014 election.

I would hope that republicans begin to act like the representatives that the people want in Washington! Hopefully they will stop going along to get along with the democrats in congress. If they go back to that behavior then the people will replace them in the next election! The silent majority woke up during the past few years and they don’t plan on going back to being a silent majority ever again! Therefore, the politicians should be very cognizant of what the people are thinking and what they want to see done in Washington.

The democrats think that they are much better and smarter and more able to take care of Americans and do what is best for them.  This elitist attitude is what really got the Tea Party started in the first place, as a reaction to the congress and President in their ivory towers in Washington.

Unless Republicans start to act with courage then the liberals will win! One party rule will become a reality as a result of Obama’s recent executive order that gives the federal government control of all federal elections.  

Please read the following carefully because our future could be determined by this Presidential edict!

ESTABLISHMENT OF THE PRESIDENTIAL COMMISSION ON ELECTION ADMINISTRATION

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to promote the efficient administration of Federal elections and to improve the experience of all voters, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Establishment. There is established the Presidential Commission on Election Administration (Commission).

Sec. 2. Membership. (a) The Commission shall be composed of not more than nine members appointed by the President. The members shall be drawn from among distinguished individuals with knowledge about or experience in the administration of State or local elections, as well as representatives of successful customer service-oriented businesses, and any other individuals with knowledge or experience determined by the President to be of value to the Commission. (b) The President shall designate two members of the Commission to serve as Co-Chairs.

Sec. 3. Mission. (a) The Commission shall identify best practices and otherwise make recommendations to promote the efficient administration of elections in order to ensure that all eligible voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots without undue delay, and to improve the experience of voters facing other obstacles in casting their ballots, such as members of the military, overseas voters, voters with disabilities, and voters with limited English proficiency. In doing so, the Commission shall consider as appropriate: (i) the number, location, management, operation, and design of polling places; (ii) the training, recruitment, and number of poll workers; (iii) voting accessibility for uniformed and overseas voters; (iv) the efficient management of voter rolls and poll books; (v) voting machine capacity and technology; (vi) ballot simplicity and voter education; (vii) voting accessibility for individuals with disabilities, limited English proficiency, and other special needs; (viii) management of issuing and processing provisional ballots in the polling place on Election Day; (ix) the issues presented by the administration of absentee ballot programs; (x) the adequacy of contingency plans for natural disasters and other emergencies that may disrupt elections; and (xi) other issues related to the efficient administration of elections that the Co-Chairs agree are necessary and appropriate to the Commission’s work. (b) The Commission shall be advisory in nature and shall submit a final report to the President within 6 months of the date of the Commission’s first public meeting.

Sec. 4. Administration. (a) The Commission shall hold public meetings and engage with Federal, State, and local officials, technical advisors, and nongovernmental organizations, as necessary to carry out its mission. (b) In carrying out its mission, the Commission shall be informed by, and shall strive to avoid duplicating, the efforts of other governmental entities. (c) The Commission shall have a staff, which shall provide support for the functions of the Commission.

Sec. 5. Termination. The Commission shall terminate 30 days after it presents its final report to the President.

Sec. 6. General Provisions. (a) To the extent permitted by law, and subject to the availability of appropriations, the General Services Administration shall provide the Commission with such administrative services, funds, facilities, staff, equipment, and other support services as may be necessary to carry out its mission on a reimbursable basis. (b) Insofar as the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. App.) (the “Act”), may apply to the Commission, any functions of the President under that Act, except for those in section 6 of the Act, shall be performed by the Administrator of General Services. (c) Members of the Commission shall serve without any additional compensation for their work on the Commission, but shall be allowed travel expenses, including per diem in lieu of subsistence, to the extent permitted by law for persons serving intermittently in the Government service (5 U.S.C. 5701-5707). (d) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect: (i) the authority granted by law to a department, agency, or the head thereof; or (ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals. (e) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Do you understand the implications of this presidential edict? Do you understand what marxist/liberals have wanted for 50 years? I realized back in the 1960’s what they wanted and I decided then to leave the party! What they want is one party rule and what you must realize is that the marxist/liberals want a different Amerika! THINK FOR A CHANGE  because your actions could determine your future and the future of America!!!!  The collapse of America will happen before Obama is finished in 2016!

Marxist Cult of Personality

A 1950 Chinese propaganda poster showing a happy family of five enjoying life under the image of Mao Zedong. The caption above the picture reads “The happy life Chairman Mao gives us”. A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise. Cults of personality are usually associated with dictatorships. The sociologist Max Weber developed a tripartite classification of authority; the cult of personality holds parallels with what Weber defined as ‘charismatic authority’. A special thank-you to the marxist news media for their support of the marxist democrats idealized public image of Obama!

A cult of personality is similar to hero worship, except that it is established by mass media and propaganda. However, the term may be applied by analogy to refer to adulation of religious or non-political leaders. While the cult of personality generally applies to the enhancement and promotion of a political or religious doctrine, it stands to reason that it is also asserted in everyday situations where popularity is used to advocate conformity to philosophies and lifestyles, even products and attitudes by way of peer pressure and herd mentality. That is why I refer to marxist democrats as zombies!

Throughout history, monarchs and heads of state were almost always held in enormous reverence. Through the principle of the divine right of kings, for example, rulers were said to hold office by the will of God. Imperial China, ancient Egypt, Japan, the Inca, the Aztecs, Tibet, Thailand, and the Roman Empire are especially noted for redefining monarchs as god-kings. The spread of democratic ideas in Europe and North America in the 18th and 19th centuries made it increasingly difficult for monarchs to preserve this aura.

However, the subsequent development of photography, sound recording, film and mass production, as well as public education and techniques used in commercial advertising, enabled political leaders to project a positive image like never before. It was from these circumstances in the 20th century that the best-known personality cults arose. Often these cults are a form of Political religion.

Personality cults were first described in relation to totalitarian regimes that sought to radically alter or transform society according to radical ideas. Often, a single leader became associated with this revolutionary transformation, and came to be treated as a benevolent “guide” for the nation without whom the transformation to a better future couldn’t occur. This has been generally the justification for personality cults that arose in totalitarian societies of the 20th century, such as those of Adolf Hitler. Have you heard this mantra before here in America? Are you beginning to understand what “Hope and Change” really means?

The criticism of personality cults often focuses on the regimes of Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Hirohito, Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong-Il, During the peak of their regimes, these leaders were presented as god-like and infallible. Their portraits were hung in homes and public buildings, with artists and poets legally required to only produce works that glorified the leader and his regime. Other leaders with such cults include Siad Barre of Somalia and Enver Hoxha of Albania. America now has its own version of a personality cult in Obama, as defined and supported by the marxists media.

The term cult of personality comes from Karl Marx’s critique of the “cult of the individual” ”expressed in a letter to German political worker, Wilhelm Bloss”. In that letter, Marx states thus: “From my antipathy to any cult of the individual, I never made public during the existence of the [1st] International the numerous addresses from various countries which recognized my merits and which annoyed me… Engels and I first joined the secret society of Communists on the condition that everything making for superstitious worship of authority would be deleted from its statute.” Thus Marx was opposed to hero worship of authority or any reference to a cult of personality! Yet today’s marxist democrats and marxist news media are doing just what Marx opposed and Obama loves!

Nikita Khrushchev recalled Marx’s criticism in his 1956 “Secret Speech” denouncing Stalin to the 20th Party Congress: “Comrades, the cult of the individual acquired such monstrous size chiefly because Stalin himself, using all conceivable methods, supported the glorification of his own person. . . . One of the most characteristic examples of Stalin’s self-glorification and of his lack of even elementary modesty is the edition of his Short Biography, which was published in 1948. This book is an expression of the most dissolute flattery, an example of making a man into a godhead, of transforming him into an infallible sage, the greatest leader, sublime strategist of all times.” Finally no other words could be found with which to lift Stalin up to the heavens. We need not give here examples of the loathsome adulation filling this book. All we need to add is that they all were approved and edited by Stalin personally and some of them were added In his own handwriting to the draft text of the book.” Even communists knew the dangers of such glorification of the individual, however, the current marxist news media are more aware because after all they are the elite!

Some authors (e.g. Alexander Zinovyev) have argued that Leonid Brezhnev’s rule was also characterized by a cult of personality, though unlike Lenin and Stalin, Brezhnev did not initiate large-scale persecutions in the country. One of the  aspects of Leonid Brezhnev’s cult of personality was Brezhnev’s obsession with titles, rewards and decorations, leading to his inflated decoration with medals, orders and so on. This was often ridiculed by the ordinary people and led to the creation of many political jokes. In today’s world Jay Leno knows how to tame the political beasts with ridicule and jokes!

Journalist Bradley Martin documented the personality cults of North Korea’s father-son leadership, “Great Leader” Kim Il-sung and “Dear Leader” Kim Jong-il. While visiting North Korea in 1979 he noted that nearly all music, art, and sculpture that he observed glorified “Great Leader” Kim Il-sung, whose personality cult was then being extended to his son, “Dear Leader” Kim Jong-il. Kim Il-sung rejected the notion that he had created a cult around himself and accused those who suggested so of “factionalism”. A US religious freedom investigation confirmed Martin’s observation that North Korean schoolchildren learn to thank Kim Il-sung for all blessings as part of the cult. Evidence of the cult of Kim Il-Sung continues into the 21st century (despite his death in 1994) with the erection of Yeong Saeng (“eternal life”) monuments throughout the country, each dedicated to the departed “Great Leader”, at which citizens are expected to pay annual tribute on his official birthday or the anniversary of his death.

Saparmurat Niyazov, who was ruler of Turkmenistan from 1985 to 2006, is another oft-cited cultivator of a cult of personality. Niyazov simultaneously cut funding to and partially disassembled the education system in the name of “reform”, while injecting ideological indoctrination into it by requiring all schools to take his own book, the Ruhnama, as its primary text, and like Kim Il-sung, there is even a creation myth surrounding him. During Niyazov’s rule there was no freedom of the press nor was there freedom of speech. This further meant that opposition to Niyazov was strictly forbidden and “major opposition figures have been imprisoned, institutionalized, deported, or have fled the country, and their family members are routinely harassed by the authorities.” Additionally, a silhouette of Niyazov was used as a logo on television broadcasts and statues and pictures of him were “erected everywhere”. For these, and other reasons, the US Government has gone on to claim that by the time he died, “Niyazov’s personality cult had reached the dimensions of a state-imposed religion”.

The current US “BigGov” supporters are really experts in this field. We see several things in common with Obama’s reign in the past several years that would place many of these minions into a cult of personality. Obama loves to make speeches with his trusted teleprompter, and the admiration of the crowds that show up for these events. The main street marxist media promotes Obama at the cost of becoming dishonest in their news coverage because they adore him and want to make sure that voters only see and hear the things that they distort or fabricate. The Obama staff lies to cover up Obama’s failures and make up signs and placards to promote a perfect vision of Obama. Obama’s decisions are ego driven and he does not like to be told that he is wrong about anything! This is typical behavior of someone who is pathologically obsessed with themselves.

This cult of personality explains why so many have a positive view of Obama even though he has made so many mistakes and is trying to turn America into a socialist country. When you add in the fact that most current democrats are really marxists and suffer from confirmation bias and as a result will never, never admit when they are wrong.

Because of this large following of admirers and the marxist news media Obama is starting his final push toward one party rule in the USA. Furthermore, the Republican leadership is doing nothing to stop this advance toward marxism! Obama has just issued a new Presidential Order number 13639 that will give control of elections to “BigGov” by taking this control from the States. Executive Order 13639, will establish a Presidential Commission on Election Administration “in order to promote the efficient administration of Federal elections and to improve the experience of all voters.” With democrats in control of this issue what do you think the result will be? I suggest that you look up the definition of marxism, which preached the necessity of social revolution to create a “proletarian dictatorship”.  What do you plan to do because you know who will be in the elite groups and who will be in the gulag groups!

Today government grows at the expense of individuals: at the expense of their rights, their freedom, their wealth. The supporters of Big Government have always justified this by appealing to “the public good.” How have defenders of capitalism responded? Not by challenging the notion of “the public good.” Instead, we have accepted that notion and tried to persuade people that only capitalism can achieve it.   Ayn Rand

A Letter I should have Written to Republicans in Congress

Dear Republicans,

We will consider donating again to the Republican Party when and only when you announce what you will do for America!!! We feel that Republicans must do a Contract With America and state some goals that Republicans will work toward if elected and use that contract as a guide for the people to judge the Republicans!!

The present Republican Party is without any leaders who have enough courage to fight the marxists who have taken over our beloved country!!! In fact the Republican Party has many Progressives who helped bring this current form of government to fruition!! The current Republicans belong to the same pack of jackals because of their continued placement of “PORK” laden bills for Americans to pay for through their taxes!!!

When we look at candidates we will try to find their yes and no answers to this enclosed candidate screen. Then make our decisions on their ability to represent the Republican Party as a conservative!! We have way too many “hidden liberals and progressives” in the Republican Party!!! We cannot believe what is currently happening in America and the only way we can save this great country is for our conservative Republicans to start acting like they are Republicans and believe in America!!!

Therefore, as proud Tea Party Conservatives we will only support Republicans that openly support Tea Party Conservative values!!! So until you make public statements that you support these values and will make every effort to fight to reduce the size of the US Government, fight to reduce taxes,  lead an effort to change or do away with Obamacare, lead an effort to disband Acorn and put the leaders behind bars, change the current method of financing political contributions that will do away with Mr. Soros and other Socialists that support progressives, lead an effort to put corrupt members of congress out of office and behind bars,  investigate SEIU leaders and thugs, fight for all conservative values, and start acting like a Regan Conservative; then we will consider again supporting Republicans. If we don’t hear these public announcements by Republican candidates then we will only support Tea Party candidates.

Please answer the following:

Will you vote for or against a bill to eliminate “PORK” and earmarks from all bills?
Will you vote for or against a balanced budget amendment?

Will you vote for or against United Nations recommendations or dictates given to the United States?
Will you vote for or against a bill to reduce the size of the Federal Government?
Will you do everything possible to change whatever the current Marists put into law to control the people of this country? The most important being the socialist bills like the Healthcare Plan?
Will you vote for or against granting citizenship to a child born in this country whose mother is not a U.S. citizen, not married to a U.S. citizen or not in the country legally?
If it comes to a vote, do you commit to vote for an amendment to the Constitution that calls for term limits for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate?

Word Usage by radical marxists or “How to con the public”

Emotionally appealing words (also called glittering or glowing generalities) are so closely associated with highly-valued concepts and beliefs that they carry conviction without supporting information or reason. Such highly-valued concepts attract general approval and acclaim. Their appeal is to emotions such as love of country and home, and desire for peace, freedom, glory, and honor. They ask for approval without examination of the reason.

A glittering generality has two qualities: it is vague and it has positive connotations yet hidden behind these two variations are the actual meanings. Words and phrases such as “common good”, “reform”, “courage”, “democracy”, “freedom”, “hope and change”, “patriotism”, “strength”, are terms that people have powerful associations with, and they may have trouble disagreeing with them. However, these words are highly abstract and ambiguous, and meaningful differences exist regarding what they actually mean or should mean in the real world. However, in marxist wonderland they take on a meaning of their own and as I have said before the devil is hiding in the details.

George Orwell described such words at length in his essay “Politics and the English Language”. “In certain kinds of writing, particularly in art criticism and literary criticism, it is normal to come across long passages which are almost completely lacking in meaning. Words like romantic, plastic, values, human, dead, sentimental, natural, vitality, as used in art criticism, are strictly meaningless, in the sense that they not only do not point to any discoverable object, but are hardly ever expected to do so by the reader”. When one critic writes, “The outstanding feature of Mr. X’s work is its living quality,” while another writes, “The immediately striking thing about Mr. X’s work is its peculiar deadness,” the reader accepts this as a simple difference of opinion.

If words like black and white were involved, instead of the jargon words dead and living, we would see at once that language was being used in an improper way. Many political words are similarly abused. The word Fascism has now no meaning except in so far as it signifies “something not desirable.” The words democracy, socialism, freedom, patriotic, realistic, justice have several different meanings which cannot be reconciled with one another. In the case of a word like democracy, not only is there no agreed definition, but the attempt to make one is resisted from all sides.

It is almost universally felt that when we call a country democratic we are praising it: consequently the defenders of every kind of regime claim that it is a democracy, and fear that they might have to stop using that word if it were tied down to any one meaning. Words of this kind are often used in a consciously dishonest way. That is, the person who uses them has his own private definition, but allows his hearer to think he means something quite different.

Statements like “The Soviet press is the freest in the world,” are almost always made with intent to deceive. Other words or statements used with variable meanings, in most cases more or less dishonestly, are: class, totalitarian, science, progressive, hope and change reactionary, equality, fairness, and justice.

Let us look at the word progressive to see all the various meanings. Political progressive; belonging to or associated with a political party that calls itself progressive or advocates social reform, making society fairer, supporting social and political change that aims to make a system fairer, a subgroup of a larger organization that is more liberal or radical than the rest of the organization. The last definition of progressive is the most accurate when talking about the current batch of democrats.

Liberals would have you believe that their use of progressive is a benign and not at all radical term. However, should you look closer you will find that they advocate social reform and are radical to the point of being marxist in their thinking. The marxist news media perpetuates this line of thought by including it in their story lines and in effect helps deceive the public. Marxists would tell you that they are attempting to make society just and fair and use jargons such as “Hope and Change”!

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage’s whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

Marxist mind control

According to many Cognitive therapy experts our emotions and behaviors are caused by our internal dialogue. We can change ourselves by learning to challenge and refute our own thoughts, especially a number of specific mistaken thought patterns called “cognitive distortions”. Cognitive therapy has been found to be effective by empirical studies.

In behavioral studies, people believe more probable events that are more vividly described than those that are not. Simple experiments that asked people to imagine something led them to believe it to be more likely. The mere exposure effect may also be relevant to propagandistic repetition like the “Big Lie”. According to prospect theory, people make different choices based on how the matter is framed or presented. Our current administration in the Whitehouse and news media are very adept at the use of framing the message to suit their need to misinform the public.

The new democratic liberal/marxists members of society are immune to this “Cognitive distortions” therapy. First, they feel like they are superior to everyone and therefore their emotions and behaviors make perfect sense to all intelligent people. As a result no one can explain reality to them unless it fits their view of the universe. Therefore, you can not debate issues with them and if you should try then you really need therapy yourself!

Various other schools of persuasion directly suggest using language in certain ways to change the minds of others, including oratory, advertising, debate, sales, and political rhetoric. The ancient Greek sophists discussed and listed many figures of speech such as euphemisms. The modern political relations term for adding persuasive elements to the interpretation of and commentary on news is called spin. Democrats have mastered spin and use it often to confuse their zombie minions. 

Liberals use political spin often to deceive their minions into believing that what they have been told is right and truthful. For example, “Republicans are for the rich and not the little person” and since a few of the rich support Republicans this must be true. They neglect to inform the public that the vast percentage of the rich support the liberals.

The Devil is in the details since many, many rich fatcats and large corporate foundations give huge amounts of money to the liberal coffers. go to the following website, www.discoverthenetworks.com and you can find the names of these individuals and groups who support liberals. Remember if the “big lie” is stated enough and loud enough then there must be some truth to what the liberals are saying. Since liberal useful idiots have a difficult time thinking for themselves they are easy prey for the liberal elite. This is an example of thought control and liberals use these techniques in our colleges every day with the main goal being to convert their students into useful idiots that promote the liberal ideology. 

Ayn Rand said it best and it is very true for liberals when she said: The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody (liberals) had decided not to see. Such is the understanding of liberals.
