The lamestream media has done it once again. Synopsis: media put out an article that they thought was a damning case against Trump but instead vindicated him. But don’t tell.
This really gets to be a tiring exercise always chasing down what media says verses what it really means. Actually nothing is ever what MSM says it means or thinks it means. That alone would be an indictment on journalism, in a normal world. But is it?
Here is the problem, they know what they are doing. The reality can’t condemn their incompetence because they are not. They are just competent at getting things consistently wrong, by intention and design. It is the same proverbial question always raised about Obama. Is he really dumb, naive or just arrogantly inexperienced; or does he know exactly what he is doing? Too many people missed that distinction giving him the benefit of any doubt. (a benefit never awarded to Trump) Incidental verses calculated?
In Obama’s case, he did know. But we were not supposed to be on to him. His first duty was to keep any naivete public illusion alive. In other words, the first goal was to deceive. Hypothetically, he could have really been wistfully unaware each and every time some major scandalous thing happened, where he only read about it in the papers, but then none of the full picture about Obama would fit or make any sense. And it would have been completely wrong, which he desperately wanted and needed us to be. See similarities?
The key is you find out the answer to any questions about radicals’ conduct and motivations for it when they are confronted. You will know by how deeply they dig in to defend or explain it. Then you know how intentionally malicious and subversive it all is and how important to them. Their anger and lengths they go to only confirms their intent.
That is why it is important to keep confronting “progressives” and radicals, to keep pointing out what they are doing. I mean one could stop and say what is the point because they know and I know what they are doing? That is too easy for them. However, I am not under the illusion I am getting somewhere or proving something in pointing out the issues.
It was the same way with Obama, we knew what he was doing and he knew it but it needed to be said. Unfortunately, he was never confronted the way he should be. But enough people did raise questions and he apparently heard those questions, we now know.
I think the real point with these cold, calculated people like Obama or MSM and others is not that they are doing a job but that their real mission is a fine art in deception. They see that as their talent. Objectivity or fairness never has anything to do with it, or very little. Only that illusion matters — and they aren’t too convincing about that.
No wonder they hate the fake news label with everything they have, as it is everything.
Their whole goal is not to tell you something but make you think and believe a certain narrative. So the narrative rules, which coincides with a political agenda. See it is all up to us then, how we perceive them as to how successful they are at their mission. If we believe CNN, NYT or media to be noble and credible sources, they are halfway to their goal. Then you will likely accept what they tell you when they feed you the narrative. So it is very much about telling you what to believe, not informing you. (unless by informing they mean forcing you to believe their narrative.) The rest is downhill.
While it may seem redundant to us to keep pointing out the lies and problems with their narrative it does serve a purpose. It challenges them to explain it and also lets them know that we know. If that basic deception is the first objective their mission and narrative depend on, it puts them back to square one. See they really need people to believe them. If they can’t get people to that they cannot convince them in the (political) narrative.
Think about this, as a tribute to their success, they could convince a good part of the nation into sedition without the people even realizing exactly what they are engaging in. If they are that good to string them along on that, what else can they lead people into?
That is their formula, whether it is on Russia or any of their other favorite pet issues. The left uses the same tactics. Obama’s campaign theme was not so much on “change” but the “believe in” part that made it possible. On reelection he told people just keep believing. So, pay attention not to what you see but what we tell you to see and what you believe.
