Barack Obama, our next President

THE “DUALISTIC TWIST” OR NEUTRALIZING LIE

Then there is the dualistic twist, where basic facts are presented in a benign fashion and then a false story which runs counter is stated which neutralizes the small part of the true story first admitted to.

A typical example is when a major mass media talking head announces that the housing starts are way down, but have increased in the last month at a projected rate of a percent or two over last year, which in practical terms means no real improvement because last year was so dismal. A story about a negative fact like the occurrence of high unemployment is allowed, but must be balanced by including a statement such as,“but there have been over 100,000 new jobs since the President funded such and such project so the situation is improving (when a close examination would so this actually shows even more unemployment than claimed and the situation is not improving).

Then there is the “selective information” lie of pulling factoids out of context, where only a small part of a story is promoted as the key concept creating a completely false impression, often 180 degrees from the real truth. It is based on minimizing the real facts of the story to reduce public awareness of what really happened.
I'm sorry, are you against such practices or for them?

It takes exceptionally talented and self-confident people to run a White House, and there is no shortage of both attributes in the West Wing today. But resounding re-election victories have a way of converting confidence into hubris that no amount of talent can overcome.

This may have been the case with the Obama White House, which declared from the start of his second term that Republicans wouldn’t compromise – not on the president's terms, anyway. Obama and his team declared a “grand bargain” on the nation’s long-term debt impossible and publicly predicted that voters would blame Republicans alone for the imposition of sequestration cuts.

They were wrong. While he remains vastly more popular than Congress, particularly congressional Republicans, the president has seen his approval rating drop to the lowest level in more than a year, with more voters disapproving of his performance than approving, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.

The survey, which reflects other public and private polls, shows that voters are split on the question of who has the best approach to taming budget deficits, with 44 percent citing Congress and just 42 percent preferring Obama.

This was predictable. The White House was warned by Democratic allies in Congress and on K Street that, fair or not, voters ultimately punish presidents for malfeasance in Washington. Even more jarring than Obama's lack of engagement was his public protestations that there was nothing he could do to strike a deal with the GOP.“It made him look weak,” said a Democratic strategist with close ties to the White House.“It made him look – can I used this word?– impotent.”

ALL MAJOR MASS MEDIA NEWS STORIES MUST CONTAIN TALKING POINTS VETTED AND APPROVED BY USG INFORMATION OFFICERS AND ALWAYS CONTAIN A “NEUTRALIZING TWIST”

After 911, under the guise of “national security”, agents of the USG approached all top news editors and informed them that all major news stories would have to be vetted and always contain a “neutralizing twist” at the end of the story to prevent the public from becoming too politically sensitized.

This meant in practical terms that stories which told the raw truth would be too disturbing to the public and result in the masses becoming too motivated to get politically involved in changing things, which would increase societal instability and thus must be mitigated.

USG INFORMATION CONTROL OFFICERS VET AND SUPERVISE ALL MAJOR NEW STORIES AND MAKE SURE THEY CONFORM TO PRE-SET FORMULAS

Your ignorant obsession with "Obamacare" is really getting tiresome Carol. Yes Carol it's a total disaster when a cancer patient on chemotherapy doesn't have to worry about their treatment being terminated because they've reached an arbitrary lifetime cap. It's a disaster when the parents of a child born with a birth defect will be able to get medical insurance and not go bankrupt because of medical bills.
Obamacare will create the ultimate disaster when some government toad decides to pull the plug and deny treatment. Or order a really late-term abortion for the child born with a serious birth defect.

Note these famous quotations:

“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror.[The people] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened.”—Josef Stalin

“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.”—Adolf Hitler

“The best political weapon is the weapon of terror. Cruelty commands respect. Men may hate us. But, we don’t ask for their love; only for their fear.”—Heinrich Himmler, Commander of the SS and also controlled the Gestapo

9-We must attack Iraq because they invaded Kuwait as a raw act of imperialistic aggression. It is now well known that Iraq invaded Kuwait because of the slant-drilling by Kuwait into Iraq’s main oilfield and a statement by US Ambassador April Gillespie that if Saddam went after Kuwait, the USG would ignore such, considering it an internal Arab affair and none of the business of the USG. This was all part of a very sophisticated long term deep black covert op.

10-Al Quaeda is behind all the continuing wars and terrorism in the Mideast and we must keep fighting there until they are eradicated. We know that American intel started Al Quaeda (aka el cia duh) as a counterbalance to the Soviets invasion of Afghanistan. Since then the USG and American Intel have continued to arm and use “el cia duh” to do much of its dirty work in the Mideast as needed to keep the Mideast in turmoil.

11-The Taliban are murdering and torturing women and behind a great deal of terrorism against the US Military and we must increase our war efforts in Afghanistan to eradicate them. The USG never gave a damn about human right here, or anywhere else and has only used such phony concerns as a precept for attacking Afghanistan to gain control of the poppy harvest, which was nearly eradicated by the Taliban.

12-We must invade Iraq and go all the way to Baghdad this time because Saddam keeps violating the no fly zone and is acquiring weapons of mass destruction, including yellow cakes and nukes. It is now well know that Saddam never had nukes, destroyed his nuclear development program, de-activated his bio-weapons and nerve agents and never had or tried to acquire “yellow cake”.

13-We are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq to establish freedom and democracy. This is a huge whopper. It is now well known that the USG is fighting this war on because of the political influence of the Neocons, Aipac and the Israeli Lobby. It has been a surrogate war for Israel and the oil companies.

14-We need Homeland security to keep us safe from all the Arab terrorist cells now present inside America. There is are potential terrorists everywhere in America now and many are vets, returning vets with PSTD, Ron Paul supporters, Christians, tax protesters or dissidents of any kind against the US Government.

15-We need the TSA to prevent frequent hijacking of US passenger aircraft. Without the TSA, there would be numerous hijackings and bombings of American passenger aircraft. The only attempted bombing of US passenger aircraft have been setups by American Intel which failed such as the underwear bomber who was able to get on the flight despite no passport because Intel officers ordered the ticket agents to let him on.

16-We need the Patriot Act and NDAA to protect America from Arab terror cell and domestic terrorists like Patriots and gun-owner extremists, Ron Paul supporters, vets and returning vets and tax protesters. The only ones that these legal unconstitutional abortions protect are the criminals in the USG that are using the false cloak of national security and the law to provide a complete block to their exposure and prosecution. The only real terrorists are in the USG, American Intel and their assets, and those that pull their strings.

"Fundamentalist Christians" is a much better description than "religious right", given that many are not Conservatives at all. If they were reliable voters, the would be running buses directly from church to the polls, just like the black churches, dragging along everybody in sight.
Fundamentalists have absolutely nothing in common with the Roman Catholic Church except the abortion issue. In all other respects, they detest Roman Catholics. They prefer Black Liberation Protestants over either Catholics or Mormons.
Fundamentalists deserve the bad publicity they receive for taking every word of the Bible literally.

THERE ARE NUMEROUS WAYS THE USG LIES TO “WE THE PEOPLE”

STORY LINES CONFORM TO PRE-SET USG LIE FORMULAS:

I THE BALD FACED BIG LIE (So big it is patently absurd)

II THE OUT OF CONTEXT LIE

III THE DUALISTIC TWIST OR NEUTRALIZING LIE

I THE BALD FACED BIG LIE

There is the bald faced BIG LIE that Hitler and his ilk promoted, also successfully used by many other despots. If declared enough, this BIG LIE almost always works unless the public is well informed.

Adolf Hitler with Joseph Goebbels, his Minister of Propaganda
As Adolph Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf:“…that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility…they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation..”

Note the famous quotes from Joseph Goebbels:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State….the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principal is borne in mind constantly-it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over…The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.”

Therefore one can see how important complete control of the major mass media is to the maintenance of the current body of cumulative serial USG lies and how important that new lies be told all the time to provide the support necessary for the old lies. And one can see how important it is for the USG to use the major mass media talking heads to continue to repeatedly emphasize the same key talking points as dispensed propaganda. And since the USG has been hijacked by the City of London Banksters, it is easy to understand why the USG uses their style of thick-headed stubborn adherence to big lies
