With our politicians and their media counterparts endless meddling by manipulating emotions and playing it very loose (if as l all) with facts…
Who needs any Russians???
Seriously. They’re just mad Russia invaded their turf. “Hey, hey! Only we lie and manipulate!”
Emotional manipulation, verses logical issue based reasoning in political persuasion, was pioneered by Bill Bernbach in the 1964 presidential campaign .
He was the driving force behind LBJs advertising.
The infamous daisy ad actually only aired once prior to the 1964 election and was just one of a few other ads that ran more often.
It was the daisy commercial that is still talked about to this day. smithsonianmag.com/history/how-da…
This entire story deserves to be threaded & tagged. In posting, my focus is not to dwell on the past but look at #Today with critical #EyesOpen. It’s a reminder to #Vote and act for the #betterfuture of our country.
In my debate with @PeterRoskam earlier this week he told some real whoppers about taxes and the impact of his tax bill on the district. They are talking points completely unbuttressed by facts. But facts matter. So here's a thread...
When I think about ‘open borders’ perspective on immigration, I see a major strategic error. (Setting aside being just part of a greater effort to form a global government; the nationless world.)
Events 1200 years ago makes a good analogy to illustrate what I reference.
Around 842 the Eastern Roman Empire had treachery afoot! The Empress Theodora was exiled to a nunnery and her lover Theoctistus was murdered, a plot orchestrated by Bardas rising his young nephew to the throne, Michael III.
The young new ruler, perfectly aware of his precarious position, desired council he could trust. Against the advice of many, Michael choose an inexperienced individual in his friend Basilius. The young Byzantine Emperor trusted this man above all else.
Wow! I haven’t seen this much bullshit in one tweet in a while, except for @Comey. First, even if POTUS gave away classified info, which he didn’t, the US President is the ultimate declassification/classification authority.
Second, that other crap you’re spewing, where are you getting that information from? Did they jaywalk in 1992? Third, there is an active investigation into the piss poor investigation of the HRC emails etc. That is what @JusticeOIG has been doing.
I really think there will be meltdowns when you all see not only the @JusticeOIG report, but the indictments from Huber, the results of the Foundation case (which is ongoing), and all the other investigations related to this. But I highly doubt you all will believe it still.
First of all, much of this op-ed is criticizing Trump on policy grounds.
There are valid arguments to make against his policies on trade, foreign policy, climate change, etc.
But none of these policy differences are evidence that Trump is trying to become dictator. /2
This sentence is complete insane.
“Mr. Trump has attacked the judiciary, ridiculed the media, defended torture, condoned police brutality, urged supporters to rough up hecklers and — jokingly or not — equated mere policy disagreements with treason.”
Disinformation promotes so much misleading & false info that people lose faith, give up. Disinformation is designed to weaken the enemy by discrediting it with lies and "leaks" of damaging "info". Hint: the enemy is us, the resistance. 2 washingtonpost.com/news/worldview…
Joseph #Stalin is credited with inventing the term "dezinformatsiya", defined in the Great Soviet Encyclopedia as "dissemination (in the press, on the radio, etc.) of false reports intended to mislead public opinion". 3 #ColdWar#Propaganda#Lies#misinformation
Over the past few months, several scam accounts have popped up that call themselves #resistance. Some ask for #donations to help impeach Trump. Some sell shirts, phone cases, etc. And there are others that ask for money for various causes. THREAD 1 #scam#donate#con#PSA
People in power define social identities as they have the means to control the narrative – news coverage, platforms to broadcast their platforms, & the power to influence law enforcement and legislation. Social identity affects how people perceive themselves and others. 3
You won’t know that if you watch the #FakeNewsMedia, Drive-By Media and their continual harangue, which is as predictable as the sun coming up after each one of these horrific incidents.
How in the world can political differences be put aside when even the marchers and their agenda sound very similar to that of the Democrat Party, which is find a way to get rid of the guns and find a way to get rid of the NRA. #WakeUpAmerica
