Media’s Preferential Treatment of GOP Liars = HowCanYouSay FilthyRich Takeover of Media Not Hurt Our Democracy?

Mickel Adzema says:

Sure
you will hear this: Rupert Murdoch spouting publicly that his ownership
of the Wall Street Jounral would not in any way affect editorial
policy. But how can anyone buy that obvious bullshit? Of course he
would say that!

I’ll never believe it. For I was long ago personally involved in the
beginnings of the pervasive media mind control program that was
initiated by the Filthy Rich, when they were first frightened out of
their wits that they might lose control of the population in the
Sixties. Not only was media control by ownership used, but TV anchorman
Howard K. Smith was fired over it, history’s records were changed
because of it, and it led to a massive restructuring of our higher
education, our Publishing industry, and our education institutions at
all levels down to kindergarten. It was the first major offensive in
the Culture War from the side of the Filthies, the first step toward
Communist-style brainwashing, the first step in the erosion of our free
press, free speech, and our liberties, and the beginning of the
downfall of democracy that has already led to two stolen Presidential
elections, massive voter machine election fraud, the refusal to replay
the Twin Towers coverage of 911 for fear that the lie about who was
responsible for that day will be all too easily exposed as the coverup
it is, and death threats against those who would still speak the truth
(might be my next post).

My “education” in media control by Filthies has already been documented:

“Whatever Happened to the Sixties Generation?” The Fear they Engendered
in the Privileged, the All Out Campaign to Slander, Distort their
Values, and to Scapegoat Them, the Big Lie
Others have asserted that the media played a large and active part in
the “disappearance” of this generation. It has been noted, for example,
as simply one indicator, that 90% of youth protests were reported by
the media in 1969, but only 20 to 25% were covered in 1970-71, and only
1% of such dissident activities could be found in the media coverage of
1972.
…this decline was part of a concerted effort by the media, in collusion
with the threatened established sectors of society, to actively put a
lid on student and youthful dissent and unrest.
I myself have knowledge and personal experience of how a similar
suppression at exactly this time was perpetrated on university
campuses. Specifically, at the college I was attending — Franklin and
Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania — and other colleges and
universities around the country, wealthy alumni threatened to withdraw
funding unless (1) certain faculty members, considered “threatening” to
established interests, were fired, (2) certain programs — considered
too innovative, “disruptive,” or “instigative” — were cut back or
eliminated, and (3) certain “unorthodox,” “undisciplined,” or “publicly
disrespectful” student behaviors were discouraged, suppressed, and/or
harshly responded to and clamped down on.
Indeed, such active “blacklisting” of counterculture figures, behavior,
and values on university campuses seemed to be part of a general dictum
across institutions — including publishing, films, TV, education at all
levels, medicine and science, and the work place — to actively fight
back at what was seen as dire threats to traditional values calculated
to placate the masses and keep them, as for hundreds of years, feeling
nervous, unworthy, inferior, and slavish in relation to the wealthy and
powerful.
With these considerations, it is understandable that in 1971 and 1972 —
despite increasing unrest and demonstrations on college campuses,
increasing liberalization of values among all age groups and growing
liberal and counterculture political power — there would be a number of
books published and widely reviewed which, closing their eyes on all
this, instead presented dubious evidence and selectively chosen
incidents to make a case for a so-called “conservative backlash,” which
there is no doubt the authors earnestly hoped for and fervently sought
to bring about in their proclamation of it.
This may be seen as the beginnings of the use of “The Big Lie” as a
major, sometimes the only strategy, in conservatives attempts to fight
back against this outpouring of sensitivity to injustice at all levels.

However, its more recent re-emergence in contemporary America and its
rise to the heights of skillful political brandishment in the hands,
first, of Ronald Reagan and George Bush, Sr., and then later to its
most pervasive use, however awkwardly and skill-less, during the eight
years of Georg W. Bush, where Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, and others
took it to such moronic lengths they eventually were seen to be what
they were — big lies, with no attempt to educate the public at all; but
simply to cover up and to manipulate, like common criminals would.
(Note, that the results of this are discussed, with a fair amount of
humor, in another piece I’ve uploaded here titled “Naked Republicans.”)

Nevertheless, these later major uses, in fact the evolution of The Big
Lie into the ONLY strategy of Republican politics may find its
beginnings in such publications as these books from the early 70s, as
well as to its highly skilled, and much documented, use by Richard
Nixon throughout his political career.

The success of The Big Lie; and its eventual morphing into the Big Web
of Deceit, more easily termed The Matrix. Whereas the 60s youth had
only their enthusiasm and their heartfelt passion to allow a world of
freedom, and all the other values espoused in our Constitution, they
were up against huge entrenched, and filthy with wealth, nameless
puppeteers. Their wealth got them any support they wanted for anything.
And sensing a threat to the established quo, hearing about idealistic
notions of equality, freedom, and such — knowing that their positions
depended not on the actual enjoyment of the masses of their supposed
“freedoms” but only their being convinced that they had them.
So it was a huge threat to see masses of people proclaiming their
rights and actually daring to use them. They could be slowed down in
using their rights by having them violently bludgeoned by police and
riled up construction workers in Chicago; they could be taken off track
perhaps, by having several of them killed at Kent State; and they could
be continually arranged to be misreported in the media and maligned as
well. But this seemed to make them only more determined.
Still, these puppeteers owned the media and therefore controlled what
the public would be told; they were the main sources of income for
universities across the country, so they controlled what would be
rolled out as truth and knowledge; and ultimately they could fund
politicians and speakers, and radio and TV show hosts who would speak
their Big Lies. So they really had all the weapons to roundly put down
this band of idealists whose only weapons were truth, and righteous
feeling, and passion of youth, and clarity of youthful mind.
So it was no contest, especially as only one side was fully aware that
they were at war; indeed the other side — most of them — having no
inkling of the powers behind the scenes (that would of course be left
out of the history and sociology books they had read — funded by the
puppeteers of course). So, many of them even began to believe that they
had lost, and that most Americans were lashing back at them. This would
be disheartening to many; especially to those who had seen the coming
together of middle class, upper middle class, and working class to join
in mass movements like the one million who showed up from all over the
country to be at Moratorium Day in November 15, 1970
So, believing the media probably had a big influence on taking the wind
out of the sails of many of the youth. And still others, feeling they
must be wrong because they had now, according to the media, become the
enemy to those they hoped would see the wisdom of these values that
basically came from them, i.e., their parents and the liberal worlds
they grew up in! Their response, unfortunately, was to try to
reintegrate with the society they had thrown behind them, but now saw
as the only one possible. Still, they retained their values, and it
became common to hear that these motivated youth decided on a strategy
of playing the game to gain entrance to the positions of power and to
change the structures of violence and hatred from within.
Coming Next: How The Big Lie Continues; the “Me Generation” created by
the Puppeteers serves dual purpose in roundly being equated with
Sixties youth, wrongly, and thus is given as evidence that their ideals
were hypocritical.

Part 1 The Fifty Year Invisible Family and Community That Surrounded
All Americans and Affected Every Aspect of Their Lives Including, and
Intentionally, the Basic Components of One’s Personality, and the
Erosion of Reason, Soul, and Independent Thought or Action. How only
because of increasingly cocky and greedy acts and extreme over-reaching
“in broad daylight,” before the entire world, which displayed an
incredible disregard for, disrespect of, indeed, the actual literal
inability of the “Filthy Rich” and their Republican puppets to SEE
American People, accidentally displayed blatantly and unknowingly by
the Rep & FR before the entire world, disclose to the masses of
Americans some “cracks,” “stains,” or textures in the “dome” of
unreality they’d existed in, which made them blind to Reality itself,
and had kept them in a near zombie like dream reality in which some
began remembering events, the memories of which had been “bleached” out
of awareness until just then, and then with remembering they realized
how they’d been trained like animals their entire lives for the uses,
whatever they’d be, of the “Filthy Rich,” and been trained then to
forget that. The absolute certainty of their success and the absolute
inability of the “Filthy Rich,” which was the shocking thing they’d
carelessly let out and therefore displayed to the World,… absolute
inability of the Rep and FR to actually notice, let alone view or act
towards, Americans as any thing even living or having sentient ability,
let alone as Humans, People, or Individuals (as far as “fellow
Americans,” if that question even crossed your mind for second, you’re
not yet taking in how literally true this is meant. You may very well,
in fact, be deeply dreaming and have missed the little crack in the
dream state that had shone the light in the eyes of a sufficiently
large segment of the world population as to cause them to come out of
trance and begin to untie their formerly invisible bonds, so that they
could try looking around, which led to the realization of the reality
that had been blocked from view, and the beginnings of investigations
into the real truths of their existence, and to this series of books,
which delineates the actual, formerly invisible profile, of the actual
actors in American’s lives, and the processes of control , and the
things in one’s lives that were determined for you by them, though you
thought you had been making decisions for yourself. And the last
aspects of this series delineating the real factors in your life and

The Rise and Fall of Obvious Truths, Part 2. by SillyMickel Adzema
This is the second of three parts detailing the history of the
Republican Party’s incredibly disciplined, relentlessly persistent, and
amazingly cohesive nearly fifty-year campaign to gain advantage and
wealth for their benefactors, the corporations and the “Filthy Rich,”
through totally concocted untruths. It continues the exposition of this
incredible phenomenon of decades long and increasing intentional
misrepresentations used by one party representing a tiny segment of the
electorate to weave a fabric of falsity over the eyes of the American
public. Similar to a kind of hypnotic trance, it is a widely accepted
but unreal and mostly opposite mental state acting like a filter to
reality, blocking out the truth and substituting a fantasy quilt woven
of verbal constructions. These constructions — the “obvious truths” —
are designed to please the ear, rationalize the urges, and comfort the
ego, so that they will become acceptable substitutes for reason and
honest perception in a population which has also been intentionally
burdened, stressed, and busied through policies intended to keep them
submissive and fearful. This coordination of policy and mantra is a
strategic effort, emanating essentially from a sliver of the
population, as a terrified reaction initially to a rapid series of
popular developments and mass movements with global reach, with the
apparent power and possibility of overthrowing a multigenerational
structure of power, wealth, privilege, and dominance. The acceptability
of this substitute narrative was shaken only in recent years as it
collided dramatically with the system that it had spawned, exposing its
roots in the minds of a class and its utter lack of foundation in
reality. The story of this lengthy and comprehensive intentional
deception, its dramatic collision, and the gradual awakening of the
population to the real forces behind the events of their lives and
times, revealed in the shock of the disruption, continues.

“The Rise and Fall of ‘Obvious Truths’ Part 3″
This is the third and final part in this series delineating: The
History of the American Republican’s Incredibly Disciplined,
Relentlessly Persistent, and Amazingly Cohesive (seemingly coordinated)
nearly 50 year campaign to Gain Advantage and Wealth for their
benefactor Corporations and “Filthy Rich,” Through Totally Concocted
Untruths,
Which, Introduced Carefully, Slowly, and therefore invisibly, over
time, One by One with persistent, relentless repetition replacing
reason or rational persuasion; along with a coordinated campaign whose
goal was the creation of an American Mind eroded of rationality and
confused and made fertile and desparately receptive to these
fabrications seamlessly portrayed as truths; and with precise and
strategic use of misinformation precisely targeted and measured for the
achievement of specific ends, which, along with their campaign to
physically and financially weaken the American Public through the
simultaneous, and equally slow, meticulous, and precisely timed
introduction of policies, which though not invisible, were cleverly
packaged and perfectly timed to confuse the obvious step by step year
by year connections of these policies and their cumulative,
increasingly successful results – the castration of the (everyone but
the “filthy rich”and the Republican Leadership, their lackeyed public
faces) American’s power to resist even their clearly felt and
increasing suffering; the slow but comprehensive elimination of
rational thought and ability to reason in the American Mind; the
creation of an American consciousness clouded and afog in confusion and
thus forgetful of its past as a point of comparison, splintered and
disintegrated and desparate for something however irrational to cling
to; coincident with the preceding the dismantling of any solidarity of
Americans on any large scale because of the confused state and its
inability to discern obvious aspects of reality around which, otherwise
and in times prior to the campaign, would have been obvious organizing
principles or passionate (passionate because of the former unconfused
mind’s clarity in witnessing big events and pervasive, blatant, and
universal patterns of change and making the obvious and easy correct
interpretations, which created conviction in one’s beliefs, rooted in
first-hand observation, and, in the past, reinforced virtually
universally by the great majority of Americans who also witnessed the
obvious same things and made the apparent and doubtless interpretations
that cried out from them.

Quote
Thus, former American minds capable of seeing obvious wrongness,
injustice, illegality, untruth, deception, or worse – suffering and/or
death of innocents, or of their allies – and gathering with great
(undoubting and unconfused) conviction and passion in large numbers in
solidarity and sameness of purpose to right obvious wrongs, or the
like, therefore with clearly identifiable rallying points in obvious
view of the great masses of Americans; which solidarity of purpose gave
them strength equal or greater than that of the “filthy rich” would-be
puppet-masters and the deciders and initiators of the events witnessed
so widely and clearly by the masses which had brought them together in
the singleness of purpose as to rival the strength of the ones, as
pointed out, responsible for the wrongs universally observed and
condemned and resulting in the massive gathering and/or movement united
in purpose against the observed wrong, seeking justice on the
perpetrators, and some sort of social or cultural change that might
possibly or would definitely prevent future events of the same or
similar sort of wrongness.

“Message in a Bottle: A Message Arrives from Nine Years in the Past Predicting Today’s Events, Part 1” by SillyMickel Adzema
We are disturbed reading that nine years ago our present National
Situation was foreseen. Worse, we are reminded of what we lost; what
could have been; how we’ve managed to block that from our memory in
accepting the much diminished prospects now; but also how we should not
forget; how we should remember how it happened; who was to blame; who
helped and colluded in bringing it about, and why; so that,
remembering, we might never let it happen again. For we learn, worst of
all, that our chance to progress, rather, just to survive, now depends
on remembering. Because nine years ago all that’s happened since could
easily have been prevented if only we had not allowed ourselves to be
talked into forgetting the history of only eight years prior to that.
This is a serious and thoughtful piece, which everyone would do well to
know, if we are to survive another 50 years, not to mention a century
or longer. Still, the author is not of the sort that facing the harsh
realities means we need go around glumly, martyr-like, in sack-cloth
and ashes. Rather, the author feels we might as well enjoy and make use
of all the God-given abilities we have whatever the outcome of our
efforts. So don’t be surprised that this exposition is aided by guest
appearances making their points in hilarious fashion. If you’ve never
heard George Bush as Blutto from Animal House, you’ve got to. Wolf
Blitzer is not recognized for being a comic, but when he goes on to
explain to his faithful viewers how they’ve been lied to and
manipulated for years, because of pressure from the Administration, and
how grateful he is for their gullibility as he is receiving promotions
and honors because his viewership is polling the highest in mindlessly
accepting the concocted view, well we see many new sides of Wolf.
Thought-provoking but funny, another thing he explains is that their
incredible success over the years in getting people to believe and or
to forget whatever they want, has resulted in their having a little
celebration consisting of an experiment as well (which they hope will
bring them in even tighter with the now all-powerful Administration).
The celebration-experiment consists of a documentary in which the
entire truth of the multiyear campaign to lie, deceive, and to control
minds is laid out. And the experiment part is that they are certain
that the next day and ever afterwards when such thing ever being aired
is denied, the people will completely forget it and believe they must
have been mistaken. Wolf signs off: “One last reminder on our special
tonight, the documentary, “Freedom of the Press, Repealed. The Story
and How, this Repeal Now Thoroughly Institutionalized Over six Years,
We Can Now Reveal How We’ve Duped You and Will Continue To.” Tune in,
don’t miss it; You’re sure to forget it.”

Quote
[If Bush gets elected in 2000,} "I believe we are in grave danger of
losing, not just an election, not just a Supreme Court, not just our
environment, not just our good economy, not just our recent relative
peace in the world but things far worse than those horrors. I believe
we are in danger of losing all hope of maintaining, let alone
progressing, in the freedoms and privileges that we take for granted."
[Wolf Blitzer participating in the creation of false realities
(farcical)]:And, ha, ha, I have to say I have my viewership to thank
for that. Sincerely, I owe a great debt of gratitude to you folks who
regularly tune in to my show in particular. Why, the absolute malarkey
that I was putting out to you, slowly at first, not feeling totally
convinced of your gullibility, I mean, still in those days it was
pretty irrational and unbelievable bull droppings, completely concocted
out of only the hot air emanating from egotistical rants of those whose
sole desire is only to comfort and enslave you.
Yet, the pollings that came in showed that I could practically fart out
these concoctions and you would swallow them whole like tasty
confections! I truly began to feel that I was like Moses bringing
nightly the stone tablets; such was the utter inability among the
masses of you to evaluate in any way what you were being fed.

Back to that time, however, still setting up the context that preceded
the one of the last eight years. Clinton’s plan was simple and it
worked. So, simple policy that ordinary folks employ in balancing their
household budgets, not rocket science, applied sincerely by Clinton,
had achievd what had been considered the impossible and as elusive as
the Holy Grail: the quest of the Balanced Budget,

which many a Republican President had claimed as a top priority and
made a central plank in his election platform, but a term or two later,
after absolute failure and in fact causing a tripling or quadrupling of
the national debt instead, had claimed was as elusive and difficult to
achieve as the Holy Grail, and also blamed the Democrats, largely for
programs instituted in the past, like Social Security and Medicare, and
so on, which they knew coming into office, and which they slashed. But
still they could not achieve a balanced budget.

Then in comes Clinton, one of the supposedly free-spenders party,
roundly criticized for budget-busting and national debt increasing
policies (somehow the Republicans and media still were able to conflate
the two even after 12 disastrous years of Reagan-Bush that had proved —
and dear people, if only it had been remembered, should have been
proved for all time and become a huge national debate if not uproar
when George W. Bush’s first major act was to reverse the successful
economic policies of Clinton and reinstitute those of Reagain-Bush,
with everyone in complete rememberance of what a debacle that had been
once.

But this is not brought out in the media.

In a country with a truly free press, not owned by the very people who
would benefit by such a reversal, this renewal of the disastrous
policies of only a decade earlier would have been all over the place
and the analogies would ripe for picking, like: “Bush elects rebuilding
the Titanic exactly the same way as before. Claims we as Americans are
not dumb enough to run into icebergs as Europeans are.”

Or, how about: “Bush proposes eliminating Food and Drug Administration,
saying it will save taxpayers dolllars. Claims no longer needed because
the kindly corporations of the current era no longer need the
regulations of the past, which were directed against people of a time
that contained more unsavory, non-Patriotic, non-American types”

It seems a defense mechanism to forget that we saw all this coming, for
to know that is to despair in realizing the impotence, even, of
awareness….
If we remembered, like Charlie Brown approaching the football, or like
Sisyphus rolling the boulder up the hill… if we remembered, would we
continue to act?
No, we have to believe that we will be surprised this time, that indeed
Lucy will hold the football and we will complete the kick….
Yet this is not the whole truth. If it were, then the cynicism we felt
about “The Audacity of Hope” would have proven a correct perception….
To the astonishment, truly, of an entire world, Charlie Brown connected
with the football, Lucy apologized for her past actions, one heavy
boulder remained steady on the top of a hill and gave a man a much
needed rest from his endless labors….
For one incredible and glorious time, the movie we’d seen had a
different ending – amazing enough – but the tragedy in the original did
not occur, and, as if God had for a time touched this planet, this
Reality we call our World, our Life… had just for one time touched,
tipped, and turned our events so that the awesomely unexpected
happened….
So that a man so unbelievably naïve and unaware as to declare the
“audacity of hope” and to call out and stir up the masses, deluding
them as we’ve seen so many times before, that “yes, we can,” would, and
we’d have to pinch ourselves to believe it to actually be happening
even as we witnessed it, actually succeed in doing exactly what he said
he would do, would not only show us that a man could actually affect
the course of events, that a person could not only change things from
the way they’d always been (what kind of man can this be?), but that he
would do it in a grand and sweeping way…..
that unmoving wrongness of the world that we have tried so futilely to
change that, being in us, is the source of the blessedness of life,
which is the fact that our ultimate unknowingness is the only true
source of a hope that IS real, that being wrong, being imperfect means
something unbelievable when you think of it: which is that against all
odds, “something wonderful is going to happen,” that in spite of
ourselves the miraculous can happen, that magic is real, and that hope,
and happiness, and blessedness, and forgiveness, and glorious divine
wonders beyond even the envisioning of our ideals are possible….
And all because the only thing that we can be truly sure of (even when
we are finally convinced that we should not expect anything special) is
that we can never be sure… which means that anything is possible… which
means that everything is possible…..

That’s how too

dispense tightly controlled pieces of information, which journalists then
trumpet as breaking news. And yes, the trend is unprecedented in modern day
American politics.
It’s actually a
two-fer. First, it’s unprecedented because the Beltway press has never showered
attention on political losers, such as Cheney and Palin.
