Opinion written by George McClellan:
We are witness to the subtle but sure unraveling of the mediocre medias carefully constructed propaganda machine that has long assumed the duty of being the Democrat Party’s defenders and apologists in all things nefarious, sneaky, illegal, unscrupulous, & etc.. Their lies are catching up to them. Shakespeare knew about it when he wrote: “Oh what tangled webs we weave when first we practice to deceive.” They are also the attacks dogs to any challenge.
On 20 January, Mick Schmidt, a NY Times columnist, wrote that the government had wire taped Trumps associates as part of an investigation to determine what criminal connections, if any, Trumps associates may have had with Russian banks. That inquiry turned up absolutely nothing. Obama’s administration then, supposedly, continued their intrusion under rules that govern foreign intelligence operations as a ruse to continue collecting data on Trump.
Yesterday, NYT journalist, Mike Schmidt, after Trump tweeted that Trump Tower had been wire taped by Obama, absolutely denied any wire tap had occurred. What story will he stick to?
On the same issue, this weekend, the recent past DNI, James Clapper, said “I can deny it,” There was no wiretap activity directed against President Donald Trump or his campaign by the Obama administration. Yes, this is the same James Clapper that told a Congressional Committee, under oath, that the NSA did not monitor domestic communications of American citizens when we know they did. Also jumping in with denials was the Quisling FBI Director, James Comey, issuing a statement rejecting Trumps assertions.
Then the Democrats brightest illuminary, the always incredible Nancy, the Botox Queen, Pelosi opined, like she had any clue at all, that “It’s called a wrap-up smear,” “You make up something. Then you have the press write about it. And then you say, everybody is writing about this charge. It’s a tool of an authoritarian.” Well, that settles it for sure. We can always rely of Nancy.
What is evident here is a massive Democrat exercise in misdirection. Trump’s allegation has probably hit close to home because there is already an extensive list of victims of the Obama administrations electronic intrusions. James Rosen and Sheryl Atkinson come immediately to mind as does German Fuehrer, Angela Merkel who, among others, was hacked. The list goes on, but the vehemence of the Democrat defensive respond, as opposed to continuing the attack on Jeff Sessions, highly suggests Trump might just be right. He does have a better record for being right than the Democrats, doesn’t he?
I believe Donald Trump really understands what’s trivial and uses his trivial “tweets” as a sword point pricking his enemies in their body politic. Democrats, when confronted as Trump has done, strikes back like a rattlesnake claiming his tweets to be phony conspiracy theories. They hope, the mediocre media will dampen down the claims as false, consign them to the trash can and move on to be soon forgotten,.…until Trump tweets again. It’s a splendid exercise in the use of Propaganda. Those who use it to persuade the populace against their best interests create myths they pose as conventional wisdom. Lies and myths then become accepted. Most folks readily accept what they believe to be conventional wisdom and shrug off challenges to it.
Counting on the help from the mediocre media, the Left inevitably wins. George Orwell said: “Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” He’s right, of course. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (07Mar17)
