Here is a link JK provided yesterday: WHODUNNIT? RUSSIA AND COERCION THROUGH CYBERSPACE.
It’s late in the game for American national security and strategic “experts” to get their heads out of their butts and get back to nuts and bolts basics:
BIG PICTURE/LITTLE PICTURE – LEARN IT, UNDERSTAND IT, PRACTICE IT ALWAYS!!!
Every successful military strategy is based on deception and yes, that means one side is “conspiring” to defeat the other side, so being called a “conspiracy nut” doesn’t even phase me in the least. I study military strategy – ends, ways, means. I try to discern strategies, just like I analyze systems – figure out the parts and how they operate together. I read a lot about military history and military strategy and have for decades, but I am NOT an expert on anything. I am a homemaker, but most of all I am an American, who swore an oath to defend The Constitution always.
The following is a repetitive LB message, which I posted at The American Thinker again this morning. It might be removed. Many of my comments there get removed, I suspect because Trump is very popular at their website. I also have posted a few comments at PJ Media and interestingly enough, the author, Roger L. Simon (a Trump supporter), descended into comments recently, to accuse me of making straw men arguments. Yes, I am controversial… and persistent. So, first here is my comment at The American Thinker article by Patricia McCarthy, The Cluelessness of ‘WWWDC’. This article was berating white-women-with-college-degrees for supporting Hillary. Here’s my comment:
“Crooked Hillary, awful in ways both obvious and alarming, isn’t why Trump is losing and it’s also not because of feminist blather. The reason Trump is losing is because he deliberately has been exploding his own campaign for months now, trying to use the Clinton-style scorched earth media strategy that worked like a charm in the primary.
His campaign staff and surrogates spend every minute trotting after him, cleaning up the verbal garbage he spews constantly. Trump could have spent the time since the convention working to unite the GOP, studying policy and staying on a coherent message, but instead he decided to play a high stakes scorched earth face-off with Hillary, hoping to recapture that primary “winning in all the polls” mojo. The reason it hasn’t worked is that scorched earth only works with massive mass media collusion. The “corrupt media” was corrupt in the GOP primary giving Trump billions of dollars in free media and selling his talking points non-stop. That allowed Hillary to bury her email server scandal and also propelled only the worst GOP candidates to gain any traction (per the Podesta email – promoting the Pied Piper candidates)
That Clinton Scorched Earth requires:
Talking points and buzz word messaging, which are relentlessly repeated by both political operatives and the media.
Mass media domination of the messaging, to control the 24/7 NEWS cycle, which requires mass media collusion.
Relentless repetition of polling data by both the political operatives and media, to facilitate the manufacture of opinion cascades (winning in all the polls).
Trump tore the GOP apart, using a hyped GOP establishment conspiracy theory (identical to how Hillary plays her vast, right-wing conspiracy), but his angry followers, who were duped by this con man, still want to blame everyone else for his failures. Trump’s primary talking points and relentless repetition of them by both him and the media sold him as “winning in all the polls”.
This Clinton SPIN media messaging, which morphed into the Obama “narrative” media messaging is wholesale public corruption, where the media elite and one political party control the political messaging 24/7 in the mainstream media and they reinforce that messaging by selling manufactured opinion cascades (polls) and talking points, which they repeat relentlessly. The repeated messages are what people remember and the repeated polls brainwash people to believe poll numbers reflect “the will of the people”.
This isn’t just about this election, it’s about a corrupt system designed to allow Leftists and Democratic politicians to control the media messaging and thereby control the political process in America. This corrupt media collusion, that worked to assure Trump dominated in the GOP primary, is working to bury Trump in dirt now. This is the Clinton Scorched Earth 2.0 . Everyone can see the corrupt media pile-on now, where the media keeps hyping one Trump scandal after another – all stories that are years old and which the media sat on for the past year – to use in October to destroy Trump. Trump is just too stupid to realize he was a Clinton dupe all along, he thinks he can beat the Clintons at their own scorched earth, not even realizing that to win with that strategy requires massive mass media collusion – it’s totally corrupt (but to borrow Comey’s words, “not illegal”).”
The article where Roger L. Simon challenged me was, Panicky GOP Leaders should Come Home after Trump Wins Debate #2:
Frankly, all along (since 1992), I’ve suspected that there was some hostile foreign intelligence influence in the Clinton SPIN cycle media messaging strategy and their souped up impeachment spin – Scorched Earth media messaging strategy, which morphed into the GWB Derangement Syndrome media messaging strategy, then morphed into the Obama “Narratives” media messaging strategy. And now we have experienced the Trump “GOP Insurgent” media messaging triumph to burn the GOP to the ground, in the primary, and we’re at the Clinton Scorched Earth 2.0 media messaging strategy to make sure Hillary wins – no matter what. All of these media messaging strategies were totally corrupt and relied on massive mass media collusion to brainwash enough Americans to buy into them to succeed. However, they all also are at their core run like military-style INFORMATION WARFARE strategies and sorry, most of the Dems, to include Hillary and Bill Clinton, know nothing about military strategy. Bill Clinton is a political genius, he is not in any way, shape or form a military strategist. The “SPIN” fits with his area of expertise- political messaging.
I’ve always been suspicious of the Carville/Matlin duo, which did in George H.W.Bush – something smelled off with them during that election, their hokey love affair and everything about them. Another Clinton spin meister supreme, George Stepanopoulos, choirboy looks, and now Chief Anchor and Chief Political Correspondent for ABC News.
So once again, here is what this strategy really is and yes, I made up the “mass media saturation strategy” name myself, long ago, because that’s what the strategy IS:
Mass media saturation is the military strategy of swarming juxtaposed to a mass media battlefield
Scorched earth is the military strategy of scorched earth (a war crime under the Geneva Conventions btw) juxtaposed to a mass media battlefield, Scorched earth information warfare is a take no prisoners blitz of vicious character assassinations AND mass media saturation on steroids.
Combined, they have been ruthlessly used to divide America into hostile, warring factions
The Russians are playing a worldwide media messaging game – BIG picture and that Iranian incident of seizing two American ships in January was part of it:
The Wiki-leaks dumps are part of it, even Lavrov’s “oh, so disingenuous pussy joke” with Christiane Amanpour (Iranian, pushed for US intervention in Balkans, married top Clinton State Dept official- getting closer access to Clinton White House), was a middle finger to US leaders. For the pearl-clutchers saying, “How could you be suspicious of Amanpour?” Well first it was her theatrical prodding US intervention in the Balkans, which made me wonder why some “Leftist” was urging US military action, so here’s the LB Guide to Profiling again.
Here’s the Lavrov brilliant attack on American leadership:
Here’s another BIG Russian media message for the US and the West:
For the record, I could not care less when people attack me personally or call me a crazy conspiracy nut, but I sure hope that the people entrusted with our national security get their heads out of their butts SOON, because the Russians ARE on the move and they have a COMPREHENSIVE MILITARY STRATEGY and they have been incrementally waging it for DECADES against America and the West. There should be a few Cold Warriors, who remember how this game is played.
Hillary or Trump are both surefire losers for America – one is too stupid to realize Putin is fluffing him and the other has so much dirt that the Russians are holding and ready to blackmail her, that she’s compromised six ways to Sunday.
This isn’t just about presidential “politics” or some benign media messaging strategy, because the Clinton mass media messaging is just part of this. The Russians are escalating their cyber warfare actions, their geopolitical actions AND military actions.
This is the culmination of a DECADES’ long comprehensive military strategy to neuter the United States and the West and the main effort has been to fuel virulent partisan factions in America and destroy Americans’ confidence in the media, in their economic system (Wall Street attacks ring a bell), the police (hey BLM, ring a bell), and the entire American governmental system. It has been a comprehensive military strategy all along.
Putin will be the only winner come November 8th.
