Trump/Giuliani: The Post-Truth Era Is Finally Here. Now!!!
The president’s lawyer previews a new strategy: “What was eliminated? And then you raise that question with every one of these tapes.”
Every one of “these tapes???!!!”
“Nothing is necessarily true that you do not see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears. Live, not recorded in any way.”
I dare ya.
Line up a battery of “high-level audio technicians.” You know…the kind that will after days of testing swear on a bible that there has been no tampering.
Then Trump’s lawyers will line up another battery of supposed high-level audio technicians. The kind that will after days of testing swear on a bible that there has been serious tampering.
Who ya gonna call?
Even if you do, are you sure your phone call wasn’t redirected to a bunch of Ghostbuster imitators?
Spooky spook spooky, anti-spooks?
And there you are, back on the leftiness vs. rightiness faux news/tweet circuit.
THE PRESIDENT IS LYING!!!
NO HE IS NOT!!!
And on and on and on and on it goes.
Where it stops, nobody knows.
In fact, nobody even knows where it started!!!
Was it with Nixon and the famous 18.5 minute “tape gap?” Or perhaps tapes that never even showed up?
Like I said…nobody knows.
Not really…the ones that did know are now all dead. Besides, if they didn’t tell you themselves what went down…live…then as Rudy G. says above:
Then you raise that question with every one of these tapes.
And even then…maybe “they” were lying?
Like I said…post-truth like a motherfucker!!!
Was it even earlier?
When “the tapes” “conclusively” proved that there was only one shooter in the JFK assassination. Until of course other tapes didn’t.
Was it the Nixon/JFK debates?
Purposely bad lighting and makeup on Nixon?
Or was it simply an ugly spirit showing through all the makeup in the world?
The so-called “news” says:
You be the judge!!!
But listen to us first!!!!
“Here come da judge!!!” as Flip Wilson used to say. (Pigmeat Markham, actually. But he never successfully passed through the media filter barrier. He was too…true. Too black.)
However…da “judge” is now…on a daily basis…all of us!!!
Judge Judy multiplied by millions.
“He slapped me!!! And then he stole my money!!!”
“No. I didn’t!!!”
And may the most ratings-friendly witness win.
Ratcheted up to potentially apocalyptic proportions.
If all evidence outside of your own live experience is essentially suspect because of possible digital taint?
Then da real judge is the one with the most power.
And who might that be?
Well folks…we gonna find out.
Just sit back and enjoy the show. You got no say in it because…because if you do try to say something that might make a little sense, you will immediately be opposed by other digital forces trying to make other things sound…”sensible.”
Or maybe pros?
Even some of them don’t know.
So it goes.
History is written by the winners.
Will it be the Trumpies? Aided of course by “other powers?”
The neocentrist DemRat/RatPub coalition?
Or will the whole ball of media wax melt while the controllers behind the Digital Curtain…the contemporary successor to the Iron Curtain, bet on it…simply prop us up a new false paradigm and then continue to go on about their “business.”
Maybe ol’ Calvin Coolidge wasn’t so dumb after all!!!
Often misquoted as “The business of America is business,” here is a prescient version of the contemporary controller line as uttered by then-Vice President Coolidge.
President Coolidge made his famous remark in an address to the Society of American Newspaper Editors on January 17, 1925 in Washington, D.C.
The speech he gave that day was titled “The Press Under a Free Government.” It focused on the role of the press in free market democracies, like America.
Coolidge noted that the press was far more likely to publish propaganda in autocratic or Socialist countries.
He acknowledged concerns about whether business considerations could affect editorial positions and news reporting in a society like the US. But he pointed out the flip side, saying:
“There does not seem to be cause for alarm in the dual relationship of the press to the public, whereby it is on one side a purveyor of information and opinion and on the other side a purely business enterprise. Rather, it is probable that a press which maintains an intimate touch with the business currents of the nation, is likely to be more reliable than it would be if it were a stranger to these influences.”
Then Coolidge added his famous quote:
“After all, the chief business of the American people is business. They are profoundly concerned with producing, buying, selling, investing and prospering in the world. I am strongly of the opinion that the great majority of people will always find these the moving impulses of our life.”
An early…and quite successful…attempt to either further pull the wool over U.S. citizens’ eyes or just another dupe talking through his hat?
You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, tomato, tomahto.
Let’s call the whole thing off.
Either way…Edward Bernays and his advertising/propaganda/mind control theories win.
“Let’s call the whole thing off.”
Just what the controllers want!!!
I will say this again:
They’ve got y’all twisted around their finger.
Their middle finger.
Bet on that as well.
