On his return from Russia and facing a new media firestorm about whether he is too chummy with Putin and disrespecting America and its intelligence community over whether Russia meddled in our elections, the Donald was put on the defensive again and started blaming the media again for its “fake news.”
“The Fake News Media is going Crazy!” the Donald tweeted. “They make up stories without any backup, sources or proof. Many of the stories written about me, and the good people surrounding me, are total fiction. Problem is, when you complain you just give them more publicity. But I’ll complain anyway!”
Well, he’s right on most everything in that statement, except it’s not fake news. It’s Obama/Alinsky news.
Saul Alinsky was Barack Obama’s one indelible influence and mentor, even though Saul was dead ten years when young Barack got to Chicago in the early 1980s. Saul’s “Rules for Radicals” were then instilled by Bill Ayers, the white suburban bomb maker and radical socialist, who was the other major influence on young Barack.
Then, through some masterful work of Hope and Change media shaping, Barack got to the White House, and took Alinsky’s rules with him.
He was the liberal media’s darling, the new black messiah, the one who was going to bring a new world of Diversity, where everyone was accepted and included where they had been excluded before.
But Saul had taught his students: “the despair is there, now we must rub raw the sores of discontent to organize them for radical social change.”
So, with great help from the media, Barack’s years were some of the most stressful and chaotic of any presidency for us sitting at home watching television. It seemed like every day there was something chaotic coming through the screens: war scenes in Iraq when Barack said we were pulling out of there; terrorist attacks at home and abroad when Barack said he was handling that, too; mass shootings; white cops shooting black teenagers, which Barack handled with his Justice Department by coming down on the cops; some disaster or threat of infectious disease coming into our living rooms each night, even multiple car crashes that somehow impacted our lives.
All dutifully reported by the media, led by CNN, but also with the help of the mainstream television — NBC, CBS, ABC — to stir up anxiety and chaos in our lives and make us more afraid and anxious. NBC nightly news, once it installed Obama friend from Chicago Lester Holt, would introduce the news each night with music that sounded like a Star Wars battle scene, stirring up chaos and despair even before we saw what chaotic things happened that day.
In news reports like the terrorist attack in San Bernadino, Caifornia in 2015, after which Barack had said the American Muslim assailants had unfortunately been “radicalized,” the New York Times reported in a story that suburban housewives were so anxiety-ridden they were afraid to leave the house to drive their kids to school. Little did they know that was part of the Alinsky media plan, to heighten anxiety in our lives.
Then slowly, quietly, Barack and his Chicago staff in the Oval Office, helped by his two main media advisors Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod, started reshaping CNN and installing Obama friendly people into newsrooms of the major networks. Axelrod became a Senior Political Commentator for CNN.
CNN and the rest of the restructured “mainstream” media were all prepared to pass the socialist/globalist baton to Hillary when the Donald upset the apple cart in one of the most amazing Democratic populist elections ever.
But too much had been done already to create the new Obama world of Diversity – ramming the homosexual agenda throughout the system, not just throughout the media but getting transgenders their own bathrooms and curriculum in public schools; getting people afraid to even think the “N word” lest the Justice department come down on them, while not doing anything for blacks except bring them into government programs as his Chicago remained a black war zone; getting as many terrified refugees into the country and onto Democratic voting rolls; getting poor people onto Medicaid through Obamacare – all enabled or ignored by his loving media.
So when the Donald unexpectedly won, he had to be brought down, and in Alinsky style.
Saul had said in his rule No. 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating.” He also said in Rule No. 12 “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.) Then, in Rule No. 8 “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”
So what appeared to some to be a shift in journalistic standards and ethics away from objectivity to hysterical, mean demonizing, CNN launched into the Donald’s hide even before he was inaugurated over a made up Russian collusion story that suddenly became real, tearing into him day after relentless day.
After a year and a half they are still pounding on him, hoping to get under his skin, and keep the American television debate focused on whether the Donald is in bed with Putin. He’s not, but don’t suggest that to mad dog Wolf Blitzer or shaming, beady-eyed Anderson Cooper.
On CNN yesterday, former senior Obama advisor David Axelrod, was on a Trump bashing panel at CNN and said what the Russians did during the election “was on behalf of” Trump and his presidential campaign. He corrected himself quickly, but not before his charge was out to the television world for CNN’s Trump hating audience.
Because what the Obama/Alinsky media is doing now, by demonizing Trump every day and night, has been to throw a smoke screen over the most massive political corruption scandal ever, led by the Obama White House. Bits and pieces of it have be uncovered by an independent watchdog group Judicial Watch, and in congressional committees, but it needs a dogged, investigative with media to pull it together, like Woodward and Bernstein did with Watergate, and drive public opinion for congressional prosecution and justice, which isn’t going to happen because they’re too busy demonizing the Donald.
What CNN and the others aren’t talking about is how Barack and his Chicago pals, as the Trump campaign was gathering steam in 2016, inserted a spy into the Trump campaign, then separately had a fake dossier produced to connect Donald with the Russians, produced with Hillary and the Democratic National Committee’s help and direction from the Obama White House, then have that dossier sent to a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) judge to issue a warrant for the FBI to spy on the Donald, with the case given to two FBI agents who were having an affair and absolutely loathed the Donald.
Meanwhile, about this time, National Security Advisor Susan Rice issued a “stand down” order to the national intelligence staff to stop investigating what they were seeing as real Russian meddling. Soon, the special counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to investigate Trump/Russian collusion, which even FBI lover Peter Strzok said was bullshit in one of his texts to his over — “There’s no there there.” Then, Page’s later text, “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing.”
But the Mueller investigation and the CNN Trump hysteria has gone on for eighteen months, with the latest mass frenzy coming after Trump met with Putin and his remarks taken the way CNN saw them, from the context of creating more chaos and doubt and demonizing Trump.
But we will never hear about this massive Obama corruption on CNN or the others, because the demonizing is in full throttle and the media pressure must be kept on in relentless Obama/Alinsky style.
Now, while his media is doing the dirty demonizing work, Barack recently turned up in South Africa, speaking to a stadium of adoring black Africans on the anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth, in one of his sermon speeches, sewing Alinsky discontent, carried back to the States by his adoring media, warning the world about “the end of democracy and the triumph of tribalism and the strong man.”
And who would ever know he was talking about himself.
