The mainstream media (MSM) drove the American voters to a frenzied Hillary-hating state of mind with its 24/7 emails reports since 2015 to the very last day of the elections. It culminated in her defeat by the Electoral College, and the installation as president of the other (by media ‘polls’) “less despised than Hillary Clinton” candidate, the first lewd president, Donald J.Trump.
There have been no more email stories since November 8. Mission accomplished!
That’s the political power of the media in action. It can keep you aroused for a whole year, and suddenly, you wake up…and it’s not there anymore. You go limp again. You don’t even remember you had it. Wow. Where did it go?!
The media decides which stories you read and tries to control how you react to them. It keeps you busy when they need you active, and passive when they need you inactive. If you can’t see the power of the media in those two elements, the emails hysteria and Clinton’s defeat, you are at their mercy. Because it is clear that these elections were greatly decided on the media manipulation of the emails story. The word ’email’ itself, during the elections, became code and synonym for ‘criminal Hillary’.
Did they work stealthy for Trump, and, if so, why, is a matter for another discussion. Today, it matters to know how is the media working with him now, after having help electing him president of the USA.
The new media frenzy, Trump tweeting about meeting and not-meeting with the “lying and dishonest media” on November 21 and 22, gives us an idea of how the MSM will work with The Apprentice president to help him lead the people of this nation to support a fascist presidency. Trump’s presidency is already marred by him losing ‘bigly’ the popular vote. That his presidency lacks moral validity because the people rejected him is not even in question, it is a FACT. This man has no right to be our president; that’s the feeling of the majority of the voters.
No president can justify the validity of his decisions on the people having confidence in him when they voted against him. And the stability of the political status quo is automatically put on hold by the other angry people, the ones who were not initially angry, but now are because they were given a coup by the media. Yes, they know, even if only at gut level they know it: She lost on account of the 24/7 emails stories. The oligarchs are going to be needing a whole LOT of media distraction to hold the people back for four long years. The oligarchy and its media have a vested interest in protecting Trump. And Trump needs the media and the oligarchs if he wants to avoid a coup d’etat.
The transcript of the meeting between The NY Times and Trump on November 22 gives us a hint of what distractions the media will be using to keep the angry people on check. As I will discuss in my next post, the emails may come back, the media will seek to make Hillary Clinton the sacrificial lamb, and continue to portray Trump as the ‘bad ass’ president lashing out at the ‘establishment’. Yes, the media and the oligarchy can tolerate a small amount of spit on their faces, but not too much. A “lying and dishonest media” was Trump’s code for propaganda media. A democracy can’t tolerate a hint that its mainstream media is truly propaganda. Trump has to make amends one way or the other. Have you noticed he is not calling them “lying media” anymore?
My next post I discuss how the media is preparing to work with Trump. I’ll leave you with the introduction.
The Apprentice President may be inexperienced on matters of government administration, but his expertise is on both MASS psychology and mass MEDIA.
Armed with this knowledge and with the help of the owners of mass media in the US (they willingly gave him “billions of dollars’ worth in free press coverage”) he tricked half the American voters into voting for him. Now, by the way he publicly managed his meeting with the nation’s mainstream media (MSM) owners Monday Nov. 21 and Tuesday Nov. 22, the Donald is showing us how he intends to run the presidency: As a ‘reality TV’ show. And the media is happy to oblige. That’s the topic of this post.
First, the Context
Winston Churchill once said “never let a good crisis go to waste”. That’s our modern oligarchs second golden rule, the first being “he who has the gold rules”.
And rule they will continue with the help of the Apprentice President, drawing out through him the benefits of this new millennium’s second political crisis. Oligarchs and conservatives with differing ideologies and bank accounts sizes are lining up to guide Donald and put their resources at his disposition. They are hoping to push their interests and agendas top of this administration by manipulating the new president’s profound and numerous personality flaws.
“But we’re happy that he’s picking people who have that free market background, particularly because on many issues, he is a blank slate, so anybody with expertise is in an amazing position to shape his agenda.” On Trump surrounding himself with ultra-libertarian Kock brothers’ network members, at Politico. (All highlights and underlines by me throughout this post.)
‘But what crisis?’ you may be asking. Some globalists are defining it as the world-wide unrest of the minions – most significantly the American ones – provoked by the “success of globalism”. That much the oligarchs have admitted about their globalist project.
To be continued.
