ELDER PATRIOT – Alex Jones has long claimed that, “there’s a war on for your mind.” A poll released on Friday by Gallup proves just how right Jones is.
The poll reveals just how successful the Mainstream Establishment Media’s (MSEM) assault on Donald Trump has been. With demonstrably false anti-Trump narratives dominating the headlines since the election it appears Donald J. Trump will enter the White House with the lowest Transition Team approval in recent history – by far.
Gallup found that at roughly the same time before his inauguration Barack Obama’s efforts in forming his new government was approved by 83% of respondents. This despite significant evidence from Obama’s past that suggested he was driven by Socialist ideals and that his far-left cabinet picks served to bolster those fears.
By contrast Trump’s Transition Team efforts have met with 44% approval. The fact that the overwhelming number of respondents couldn’t name a single appointee or match an appointee with a position once provided with their name proves the power of the MSEM to form public perceptions.
So what’s going on here? Democrats learned a valuable lesson when they successfully demonized George W. Bush at the end of his second term. The strategy was so successful that the Democrats won overwhelming control of the Senate and the House enabling them to pass and enact the two most expansive legislative leaps towards turning the United States into a Socialist economy – Obamacare and Dodd-Frank.
Obamacare increased the dependence of 20 million Americans on government and Dodd-Frank began the process of dismantling the middle class that is a hallmark of Communist governance.
Now the Democrats, joined by Republican Senators McCain, Rubio and Graham are using the same game plan against Trump that they used against Bush. Truth is immaterial in their pursuit of control and their propaganda arm, aka the MSEM, has been doing their dirty work by relentlessly pursuing The Big Lie:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels
Goebbels was the chief propagandist of the Nazi regime in Germany. His ability to “spin” the truth paved the way for the Nazi’s rise to power and later allowed them to perpetrate Germany’s military aggression and the most horrendous crimes against it’s own citizens and the citizens of the world.
Another poll, this one conducted by Quinnipiac reveals that 55% of Americans believe that Russia interfered with the election even though there hasn’t been a single shred of evidence uncovered to even suggest that was the case. This narrative, too, has been drummed up to discredit Trump without any evidence.
Goebbels would be proud of how effective the Democrats and the MSEM have been in controlling Americans’ minds to accept the loss of U.S. sovereignty, their personal loss of prosperity and freedom, and the consolidation of power in a handful of elites over whom they have no control.
