How our minds are conditioned and controlled: If a person believes a “fact” long enough, he or she cannot ponder or contemplate information or a question that challenges the fact. The mind simply cannot process information that conflicts with previously accepted data. Prior conditioning is difficult to challenge.
America has come to be more like North Korea than the America our fathers grew up in. The United States is not a country descending into totalitarianism. Totalitarianism, the police state, is here.
In the days of the old Soviet Union, people considered enemies of the state could disappear at any time. Americans rightly decried such actions and held America to a higher standard: a bastion of freedom. Who living then could have envisioned that such a thing would come to America?
The fascists in both political parties have lost control of their messaging. The wealth of freely exchanged information on the Internet has divested them of their primary means of propaganda: the corporate media. They are working very hard to regain control.
A few years ago, conservatives disappointed with the statist brand of Republicanism that was becoming ever more prevalent in Washington, D.C., developed the term “RINO” and began branding big-spending, big-government Republicans with the term. It’s an acronym for Republican In Name Only.
“I like Ron Paul’s ideas on the economy, but I can’t vote for him because he’s an isolationist on foreign policy. He’s a kook (or naïve, or nuts or insert your own word) on foreign affairs.” What that means is that pushing Middle Eastern countries around and imposing our will on them is more important to so-called conservatives than getting our financial house in order.
The U.S. Senate is considering a bill that would designate the whole world, including U.S. territory, as a battlefield and subject American citizens in the United States to indefinite military detention without the benefit of trial and to attacks along the lines of the drone assassination of supposed terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki.
It’s clear the elites won’t be satisfied until all the world is in a conflagration or subjection. That is the takeaway from Tuesday’s GOP debate.
Much to no one’s surprise, the supercommittee turned out to be anything but super. There was never any real intention by the members of the committee to make cuts of any significance.
Listening to the mainstream government propaganda arm corporatist media, one would think Ron Paul doesn’t exist; or, if he does, there’s no way he’s going to be the Republican nominee. But something happened on the way to the media blackout party. Ron Paul’s message is winning despite the concerted effort by the political and media elites to act like he’s not really there.
