David Mamet had a famous saying, essentially: …‘in order for genuine liberals to continue their illogical belief systems they have to pretend not to know a lot of things’… By pretending not to know, there is no attachment to any adverse consequences.
In essence, liberalism maintained -in the face of overwhelming empirical evidence- requires feelings to overcome logic in the ongoing game of make believe. Hence, cognitive dissonance is a defining principle as large numbers of people need to be swayed to act against their own best interests.
To retain the larger ruse, Alinsky expanded on (many would say took advantage of) the necessary dissonance and various illogical shell games (system overload) became a component of his modern approach.
We have witnessed some of the most intense distraction shell games being played in the past ten days. Feeling overwhelmed?… that’s by design, not happenstance.
With the Clinton campaign narrative solidly in hand the MSM have been fast-hand shuffling the shells to keep the Trump campaign off balance and the larger electorate distracted. In the current political shell game, logical focus is the enemy. If you know the pea was dropped below the table, you wouldn’t even bother making a guess about location when the shells stop moving.
That’s the back drop for the Fox News debate by master tactician Chris Wallace. Don’t sell him short, his life-skills are fraught with shell game training and ‘pretending not to know‘ those things previously mentioned. Fox News has one goal tomorrow, and we’re about to outline exactly how it plays….
Again, it must be repeated – in the same way the concept of a two-party system in DC is a total ruse, so too is the concept of a left-wing and right-wing corporate media. The DC system is a UniParty system based on mutual benefit; the U.S. Media corporate constructs surround the same principle. One UniParty Corporate Entity. NBC-Universal is no different in their financial wall Street objectives than News-Corp (Fox).
Today Fox News releases another Daron Shaw poll, replete with yet another visible appearance by Daron Shaw on Bill O’Reilly. They just presented a poll, an almost identical poll last Thursday (4 business days ago), so why another on the eve of Wallace’s debate?
It’s all part of the larger corporate agenda. Donald Trump is a pure and genuine existential threat to the entire system. Stunningly so.
Rupert Murdoch (Mr. Wall Street), and Bill Sammon (Fox Political Vice President in charge of debates), have the same objectives/messaging in mind. You only need to elevate yourself to 30,000/ft, disconnect from traditional views, accept the unity MSM objectives, look at their central cast behavior (Baier, O’Reilly, Kelly and Wallace)… and very quickly you can understand what those objectives are.
After the application of the red pill approach, you can accept that Chris Wallace strategically uses the Mamet principle to portray himself as the high-minded deliverer of all things newsworthy.
Anticipate Wallace beginning the debate thusly:
“There has been a lot of noise amid the election coverage with reports of groping, locker room talk, emails, WikiLeaks, investigations and such lately…. but what’s more important to the electorate are the specifics of policy and your skills to lead our nation…. as such, I’m going to ask each of you to stay away from the personal nonsense, drop the controversial gotcha talking points and speak directly to the American electorate”.
Or something similar and equally table clearing.
He’s then going to wonkify the debate, going directly to specific and intensely granular details about policy. This effort will be geared toward aiding the “expert government policy candidate“, Clinton.
Wallace will shroud and protect his (and Murdoch’s) objectives, by claiming the intellectual high-road; all-the-while the goal is to emphasize the low-minded, non intellectual, non-policy specific vulgarian, Trump.
Chris Wallace will use video(s), and visual aides to amplify his approach and contrast how the “intellectual professionals” within the various intellectual policy businesses (think tanks etc.), are diametrically opposed to any disruption in the order of things.
Wallaces’ dismissive approach is most effective when it gets granular. • The leadership of Yemen and the U.S. current Red Sea fleet’s position, when contrast with the Saudi Arabian government concerns. • Various wonky global policy leaders and their proposals and individual G-7, G-20 summits and the internals of massive White Paper institute proposals. • Global Warming summits and TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), etc. etc. etc. The same domestically.
This approach puts landmines in front of candidates who are not granular in their subject matter interest. Try to go ‘big picture’ and the questioner gains the upper hand by claiming the question is not being answered… etc.
When professional debate teams know the granular approach is coming, they break down their team into specific study areas. With individual candidates it’s much harder, because the wonk is encyclopedic in scope.
Given the nature of the overall current landscape in the past political week, the overwhelming shell game – in combination with the locations and activities of all the known key players, all of the stars align with this MSM strategy; and this dismissive and ridiculing approach is directly in the wheelhouse of an elitist who wants his own place in history, Chris Wallace.
Last year we showed you a presentation by Chris Matthews, another person who has the same elitist skill set as Chris Wallace and who runs in the same circles. This video highlights the liberal media’s need to pretend not to know….
The audience for tomorrows debate is the larger electorate, however, the real audience are the MSM colleagues who are chomping at the bit to begin the stupid vulgarian frenzy.
