What we have now in this country is exactly the same thing as the Soviet state circa 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. Pure propaganda. It is also the same exact same thing as the Goebbels propaganda arm for Hitler in the 1930s and 40s that created all manner of false paradigms.
Most people here in USSA today do NOT fully grasp the power of PRAVDA/MSM in this country. It is the source of power of the Obama regime, Hillary and the Dems in general. It is how they easily control the masses. It is a form of mind control.
Consider these disturbing issues. ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.
CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.
ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney
ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary
ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood
CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.
Interestingly this journalistic incest works exactly like Goebbels and the Soviet state very easily and efficiently !
Here is a link to a guy I have followed at ZeroHedge for years. This article explains a lot so check it out !
How it affects the American population in conjunction with PRAVDA/MSM
I will start with some definitions and then expand and more clearly identify the American experience of these phenomena. This is what Donald Trump needs to fully understand immediately and get it out there for all to see !
Can normalcy bias create a nation of lemmings ?
Here is a wiki definition of the Normalcy bias . What happens is, we tend to not want to take in all the information rather deliberately because it may be a bit unpleasant. We find it very easy to discount or disregard all the information because it is easier to do that, rather than actually consider the consequences. So a lot gets swept under the rug in our rationale on many matters. Hence we think all is well by simply discounting many factors even if they are staring us right in the face everyday. I can think of a very good example on how this plays out here in USA today. Many think our economic picture is bright and a bit rosey even. But those very people do not fully consider the enormous debt we have created by pumping up the markets. That pump was simply another illusion created to fool people and make them think all is well and we are in a recovery ! And many buy into it because they have not really felt much impact yet, the key word being yet ? But for every action we know there is an opposite reaction and this will be no different at all. But it is very easy for the average guy to buy into the charade because he is just fine, in his view. The problem is that his view does NOT take into account all the debt that has been created and just how or if, it is even numerically possible to pay any of it back ? And if it cannot be repaid then what happens ? So he is living in the normalcy bias and simply ignoring parts of the equation as his daily life lumbers along and all seems well. But of course there actually is far more to the story. The near 21 trillion admitted as national debt is just a pittance compared to the over 150 trillion of off balance sheet unfunded liabilities of Social Security, Medicare and other off balance sheet schemes and black budget issues that are NOT accounted for on any ledger that the public is aware of. It is all withheld very deliberately so you do not see the real numbers. Then you would realize that our government is actually insolvent. And beyond that there is more than 700 trillion in derivatives floating around that are simply bets on top of bets on top of other bets. And none of it is regulated nor does anybody really know who would actually have a valid claim of any sort. So it really is a giant house of cards and nothing more ! All created by the banks and the wall street so-called smart guys.
So the Normalcy bias is really something we simply don't want to face and really just psychologically and emotionally hide from or simply fool ourselves. Because it is not a feel good kind of thing or issue at hand. We see this play out in all manner of issues and events here in USA and there is no doubt the politico control freaks are keenly aware of this phenom and play on it everyday. They simply skirt around the real answers or numbers knowing that few will grasp the truth or even consider that the numbers don't add up or the scheme is simply not feasible. So it is relatively easy to vilify those few that are actually thinking, simply because they are few and NOT the majority. So they must be wrong because everybody thinks something much different ? And that my friends is how it all works to bamboozle you and create many of the Illusions we all live in. There are many more examples, and yes Obamacare is a very good one , but I think you get my drift here and how it all works so lets move onto Cognitive Dissonance.
Here is the wiki definition of Cognitive Dissonance . What happens with cog dis is that we get confused and have frustrated thinking because we see something that should be doing this, but it isn't. A major mixed signal ! Two competing and conflicting cognition stimuli at the same time. And beyond that we are being told that an outcome should do this, when we know it shouldn't ? Much like an Alice in wonderland dream of sorts. And I could use the economic analogy again but lets use Obamacare this time. We were all told that this law would be very beneficial and lower the cost of health care. As it moved along nobody was allowed to read the bill. Of course many called bullshit from the get go , myself included. But the control freaks insisted that you could keep your doctor and it will save billions of dollars and everybody will be covered no matter what ! As more time passed the picture only got worse and many now realize it was actually a complete lie and nothing but a scheme from the get go. But none of the claims have softened or in any way lived up to the truth of the matters. It is simply a control mechanism and a tax scheme and nothing else. So we have all experienced various degrees of cog-dis from this and many other events from this regime. They actually feed on it to keep the issues confusing and that gives them breathing room to keep it all rolling along with ever more false claims and down right malfeasance and illegal acts.
So between the Normalcy Bias and Cognitive Dissonance they have found many ways to keep the masses bamboozled and it all manipulated by PRAVDA/MSM as the propaganda arm that makes it all work ! Lets take a look at that as well. Here is another perspective on cog-dis and normalcy bias
We used to have something called journalism in this country and they actually did question authority. Imagine that, how novel ,Hey ? What we have now is simply a propaganda machine and outlet for the current regime of control freaks. Consider this, back in the 1960s - 70s, PRAVDA and TASS of the old Soviet politburo, were in fact the official propaganda machines and the only source of information inside the Soviet Union. So the people could only hear or see exactly what they wanted you to hear or see ? What we have today, here in USSA, is no different at all. It is the same exact thing. The biggest outlets simply do not report any negatives on the Obama regime and the control freaks. Also they only run what are perceived as any positives. And most of those are lies and distortions or illusions created out of thin air. Some of which are beyond preposterous or simply made up like the video that supposedly caused Benghazi. Or the fact that the IRS debacle is not covered by most of the outlets, and it is completely disavowed and covered up. So we have many powerful forces working together in a sort of mind control effort and propaganda effort to help and protect the control freak elites.
I could list the many events like F&F and so-called border control, but again you likely already know all that and get my drift on the issue. The power of PRAVDA/MSM is far more serious and important than most realize. In fact it is the real source of power for the control freaks. Because they can determine all narratives and dialogue and steer all issues in any direction they deem necessary and ignore any they please, to achieve any outcome desired. It is far more important and powerful than simply calling it the left leaning media. Way past that. And until we all grasp the depth of this phenom we will not be able to defeat it. Just as understanding the many illusions is the secret to defeating them and rendering them ineffective on you, the same applies to understanding the full power of PRAVDA/MSM as a propaganda machine and a control mechanism. All of the above phenom are all tied together and used every second of everyday to control you !
Next we have the Hegelian dialectic.Here is a short but concise explanation of this phenom.
"The Hegelian dialectical formula: A (thesis) versus B (anti-thesis) equals C (synthesis).
For example: If (A) my idea of freedom conflicts with (B) your idea of freedom then (C) neither of us can be free until everyone agrees to be a slave.
The Soviet Union was based on the Hegelian dialectic, as is all Marxist writing. The Soviets didn't give up their Hegelian reasoning when they supposedly stopped being a communist country. They merely changed the dialectical language to fit into the modern version of Marxist thinking called communitarianism. American author Steve Montgomery explores Moscow's adept use of the Hegelian dialectic in Glasnost-Perestroika: A Model Potemkin Village."
Here in USSA today, this phenom is used to control both sides of political thinking and those outcomes. So Red and Blue are really just a slightly different flavor of the same thing ! and voila, you have an excellent control mechanism to control the masses !
I will expand on these thoughts as more comes to mind and events unfold. June 26, 2014 written by Steve Baze
