CNN Highlights Use of Mamet Principle – Fraud News CNN Remains Fraud News CNN…

Liberal turned conservative David Mamet famously said:

In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things…

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, moonbat extraordinaire, sparred with Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA) over President Donald Trump’s weekend tweet of a video meme. CNN’s ignoring of actual political violence while pretending a meme about wrestling is real violence is directly what led to President Trump garnering more credibility than CNN.

Watch Alisyn Camerota pretend not to know that.

    All these people that are so AGHAST that the president would stoop so low, have either grown up the age of the summer of love (1967) or since…. yet they act like they’ve never heard a little grey language or seen somebody punch someone in the face.

    Seeing people like Hillary act like they’re so shocked by President Trump’s antics, when she’s a committed coke-head is hilarious.

    Why feature this republican congressman on the Treehouse? All he did was keep saying he disagreed with Trump’s tweets. No guts to defend POTUS.

    As a scientist, leftists drove me stark raving bonkers!

    This article helped my understand WHY they completely DENY logic and facts.
    The Philosophy Of Karl Marx

    The Hegelian Basis

    The philosophical bases of Marx’s thought were laid early and remained unchanged throughout his life. As a student, Marx accepted the philosophy of Hegel as the only sound and adequate explanation of the universe. According to this philosophy, “the only immutable thing is the abstraction of movement.” The one universal phenomenon is change, and the only universal form of this phenomenon is its complete abstraction. Thus, Hegel accepted as real only that which existed in the mind. Objective phenomena and events were of no consequence; only the conceptions of them possessed by human minds were real. Ideas, not objects, were the stuff of which the universe was made.

    […]Consequently, in this realm of the mind within which the universe had its only real existence, innumerable theses and antitheses existed. Struggle or conflict was the en-evitable fact in such a universe—conflict of the thesis with its antithesis. In this struggle thesis and antithesis acted and reacted on each other, and a new phenomenon—synthesis—was created. All action or change occurring in the universe was, under the Hegelian philosophy, the product of thesis, antithesis, and resulting synthesis—all in the realm of ideas, since objective reality could exist only in that sphere. Since this process was universal and never ending, it offered a complete explanation of the causal processes creating all phenomena within the universe. […]

    This is why the leftists were always harping on the Scientific Consensus around Global Warming BTW. In their mind the “synthesis—was created” and it was time to move on to ‘mitigation’

    This is also why you have college profs teaching students there is no such thing as reality. I ran in to it as a canterous fully adult Deplorabe.

    It was at a week long management training seminar for foremen. One of these professors started lecturing us, on how we could not know reality. You should have seen the looks on those poor guys faces. Picture a group from Rolling Thunder sitting in on this lecture and you will get the idea. We were FACTORY workers. We made things TO SPECIFICATION, and this guy wanted us to believe there was no way to know reality?

    I just couldn’t stand it.

    There was a train that ran outside the building on a daily basis and was due in about 15 minutes. I challenged him to go lay on the tracks if he really thought reality didn’t exist but first I wanted his car keys, house keys and a quit claim deed on both.

    The guy got bug eyed, stuttered and slinked out of the classroom to an uproar of relieved laughter.

    What in Hades was the University of Louisiana thinking of when they tried to subject a bunch of blue collar types to that crude?

      That guy needs to be taken out back. There is never any need to belittle another human being like that. Of course, that’s pretty much all he’s got.

        Watching the clip with Alisyn Camarota and Rep Taylor, I think it’s time to rethink that position. Had Taylor clapped Alisyn’s head between 2 pieces of bread……..maybe someone can tweet the image.

    At least the wrestling tweet got us off the subject of the Mika’s facelift tweet.

    The average IQ at CNN would struggle to reach “body temperature” (deg F)
    Their audience is dumber than they are

    If Alisyn Camerota were to defect to MSNBC.. the IQ average at BOTH channels would increase.


  12. Aintree77 says:

    GOP Rep. Taylor was only invited on CNN to admit to their partisan audience that he “is critical of Trump’s tweets” and “wishes he wouldn’t do them.” They achieved what they wanted and at times the interview seemed like a humorless rendition of the Abbott and Costello routine “Who’s on First.”

    Camarota’s comment “We wish the President would talk about substance” is ludicrous coming from an alleged journalist. She seemed to think Twitter is the only source of news from Trump when she can easily go to (as only one of many sources) and make 2 mouse clicks to Featured Videos or other options which shows most of Trump’s newsworthy meetings with industry, veterans, Immigration Crime Victim families, Tribal leaders, various speeches, Agricultural innovation, meetings with world leaders and on and on. Every other department like DOD, State Dept. etc has similar videos of their Policy Press Conferences and ongoing events. Mattis and T-Rex are always great. CNN chooses to ignore all these issues.

    I don’t want to be unfair to Rep. Taylor but it looked to me like he naively went on the defensive and was clearly scared to show too much support for Trump. When he said he wished they would stop talking about the tweet and talk about the news, he missed a golden opportunity to mention the O’Keefe videos. Besides, other news to CNN means Russian Collusion. This is a serious propaganda war and Rep. Taylor was squishy and disappointing. No medal for bravery under fire for him today.

      Yes it was disappointing that his bravery as a former Navy Seal did not show through . Sad

        Dr. T
        That was a stupid choice of words on my part. I had not thought of that fact when I wrote it. Apologies to Rep. Taylor for my ignorant lapse.
        Thanks for pointing it out to me in a gentler way than I deserved.


    • mikeyboo says:

      Taylor’s training is for actual shooting war-not the media war hiding behind an attractive blond with a Colgate smile. My sense is Taylor will get angrier and better at it and will start “shooting” back. I wouldn’t give up on this SEAL just yet.

  14. Just pathetic and sad really. If you search through @POTUS twitter feed from June 30, the CNN video was the only tweet even mentioning the media. Then she calls the suggestion of covering his other tweets “crazy.”

    Recently, Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse (TCT) wrote about liberal playwright turned conservative playwright David Mamet who somewhat famously said:

    In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things…

    Mamet is a wordsmith and analyst of human nature, so he says that liberalism must by definition be illogical. An expert logician would say that any system of complex enough to be interesting, which includes social systems, will have a certain amount of internal inconsistency, but Mamet contends that the inconsistency goes way beyond accepted and understandable levels. 

    A related though stronger argument than Mamet’s is offered by physicist Richard Feynman (MIT ’39, Nobel ’65) who said that, the game he plays is a very interesting one called, “Imagination in a Straightjacket.”  That is, what he imagines must agree with everything he knows, and Feynman knew a lot. If what he imagines doesn’t agree with what he knows, then he immediately gives up. The integration of large amounts of knowledge in Feynman’s brain constituted his theoretical and cognitive straitjacket.

    This mental discipline should apply to policy formation, but I can assure you that it does not. 21st century policy is based on the advertising ethic — “the truth is that which sells.” As Sundance points out, the very smart people in the political establishment spend a lot of time figuring out how to benefit from and sell policies, but very little thought goes into ensuring that they’re workable and benefit their intended audience.

    This, it seems to me, is a good working definition for conservatism, the consideration and integration of all known knowledge to ensure workable and sustainable policies. This seems to be what Mamet is alluding to. Moreover, this is not what the modern globalist and socialist political establishment does though this is what everyday citizens expect. The new wave of nationalist politicians would do well to formulate policy based on Feynman’s discipline, but doing so will be hard.

      They like it because they’ve been on the receiving end of this kind of punishment for to long. The nasty, vindictive lying media has been punching us in the face for decades. Payback is a bitch and this was just the outward for show action of Trump. Meanwhile behind the scenes he’s daily tearing apart the leftist agenda on every level.
