Bin liners

"CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power".  "The "Wanted For Treason" Flyer Distributed in Dallas Before JFK's Visit".

"CNN Caught Lying Twice In One Day! Nancy Sinatra and Reddit Put The Brakes On #FakeNews".  It is quite possible that many people didn't go in fear of being brutalized by the liberal thugs who threatened extreme violence.

Tweet (Kremlin Gremlin):
"One picture is worth a thousand-word polemic on the liberal press:"
"Why Ridiculous Official Propaganda Still Works":
"The primary aim of official propaganda is to generate an “official narrative” that can be mindlessly repeated by the ruling classes and those who support and identify with them. This official narrative does not have to make sense, or to stand up to any sort of serious scrutiny. Its factualness is not the point. The point is to draw a Maginot line, a defensive ideological boundary, between “the truth” as defined by the ruling classes and any other “truth” that contradicts their narrative.

Imagine this Maginot line as a circular wall surrounded by inhospitable territory. Inside the wall is “normal” society, gainful employment, career advancement, and all the other considerable benefits of cooperating with the ruling classes. Outside the wall is poverty, anxiety, social and professional stigmatization, and various other forms of suffering. Which side of the wall do you want to be on? Every day, in countless ways, each of us are asked and have to answer this question. Conform, and there’s a place for you inside. Refuse, and … well, good luck out there.

In openly despotic societies, the stakes involved in making this choice (to conform or dissent) are often life and death. In our relatively liberal Western societies (for those of us who are not militant guerillas), the consequences of not conforming to the official narrative are usually subtler. Despite that, the pressure is still intense. Conforming to the consensus “reality” generated by these official narratives is price of admission to the inner sanctum, where the jobs, money, professional prestige, and the other rewards of Capitalism are. Conforming does not require belief. It requires allegiance and rote obedience. What one actually believes is completely irrelevant, as long as one parrots the official narrative.

In short, official propaganda is not designed to deceive the public (no more than the speeches in an actor’s script are intended to deceive the actor who speaks them). It is designed to be absorbed and repeated, no matter how implausible or preposterous it might be. Actually, it is often most effective when those who are forced to robotically repeat it know that it is utter nonsense, as the humiliation of having to do so cements their allegiance to the ruling classes (this phenomenon being a standard feature of the classic Stockholm Syndrome model, and authoritarian conditioning generally)."
and:
"The point of all this propaganda is to delegitimize Donald Trump, and to prophylactically reassert the neoliberal ruling classes’ monopoly on power, “reality,” and “truth.”"
"Roaming Charges: This Ain’t a Dream No More, It’s the Real Thing".

"Credentialism and Corruption: Deaton on Opioids, Trump (and What Does “Rural” Mean?)".  OxyContin is pushed thanks to the Sackler family, and heroin is from Afghanistan thanks to a War For The Jews.  It is holocaust for Trump voters.  Excuse me if I can't help but notice these things.

Complete lack of awareness that liberalism and neoconservatism are now identical:  "The reviews are in".

"Is NATO really obsolete ?"  "Joint Russian, Turkish bombing campaign in Syria deepens NATO crisis".

"Gladio Again: Germany Could’ve But Didn’t Stop Berlin Attacker. Why?".  Anti-Merkel forces in German counter-terrorism?

"George Soros faces backlash in Eastern Europe and Balkans".

"The search for DNC staffer Seth Rich's killer continues with billboards and website".

"Brazilians Stunned By Death Of Supreme Court Justice Ahead Of "Explosive Testimony"".

"Israeli Border Police Executed Bedouin at Um al Hiran, Doctored Video Footage".

"Was Blair’s “sweatshops for Palestine” agenda shaped by a Labour donor?"

"Rothschild Family Wealth Is Five Times That Of World’s Top 8 Billionaires Combined".

Tweet (Eric Wuestewald) (it would be nice if this lasted for eight years, but the Democrats will cave as they always do):
"John Brennan has resigned. Mike Pompeo's nomination has been blocked. The CIA is currently without a director"
Tweet (Ali Abunimah):
"She's still looking hale and healthy. Not scheduled to be ill until next week, when Belgian police want to question her for war crimes."
"Today’s Blind Items – The Social Climber". Lord Snowdon.
