Yep, I’m still on the scorched earth SPIN information war consuming America. I like doing timelines and then stepping back and looking at them, looking for patterns and trends that get lost in the rapidly shifting spin cycles in America.
SPIN information warfare began in America in the 1990s with the Clinton war room.
During the 90s, the constant spin back and forth escalated and America was enmeshed in constant Clinton scandals.
On the Right numerous media operations began to “expose the Clinton corruption” (the scare quotes in no way mean the Clintons weren’t corrupt, they mean that was the “mission” (ends, if you will) of the operations. For instance, Judicial Watch began and to me that looks like an American Wikileaks operation ferreting out every bit of FOIA info they can get their hands on and spinning it to the max against the Clintons & Dems. Many long-established conservative news media outlets joined the “expose Clinton corruption” efforts, but the thing is there was a constant effort to spin wild conspiracy theories to prod the Right further and further toward grassy knoll territory.
By the time Clinton Impeachment rolled around, the American Right was in full Clinton Derangement Syndrome mode. A couple of names come to mind as becoming overnight star agitation propaganda players on the Right. Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report broke the Lewinsky scandal and Ann Coulter became a firebrand pundit on cable TV and penned a book on High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Kellyanne Conway, back then Fitzpatrick, Laura Ingraham and the late Barbara Olson became pundit stars spinning against the Clintons. Kellyanne Conway worked for Frank Luntz (more of that polling kabuki inc. in America).
The Bush/Gore campaign was the entire hanging chad hysteria, followed by 8 years of Soros group-funded SPIN agitation propaganda, stirring Bush Derangement Syndrome. The name, David Brock comes to mind as a big right-wing agitprop player from the 90s working for conservative The American Spectator, who then switched to becoming Soros’ right-hand man running a vast network of agitprop groups on the Left.
America has been played back and forth since the 90s – imagine some movement like Black Lives Matter, which agitates racial distrust and pits black Americans against the police – to discredit law enforcement in America.
Through the 2000s we had more agitprop and a full-blown right-wing effort emerged with the Tea Party movement sucking in American conservatives. And there was Obama Derangement with Birtherism. We’ve had non-stop hysterical SPIN info war working to tear America apart.
Ann Coulter has President Trump’s ear, Kellyanne Conway is in the WH whispering in his ear, and Laura Ingraham is on FOX talking at him too. The Murdoch/Soros efforts look to be the two biggest players working to tear America apart and I wonder if there are hostile foreign hands involved too.
Just for historical reference, the Soviets & East German Stasi loved using women to manipulate men.
I find it very interesting that Don Jr. now has a FOX News babe surrounding him. The POTUS has Kellyanne, Coulter and Ingraham prodding him. With Melania, I think it would be prudent to gather intelligence on Trump’s foreign business efforts and how Melania came into his orbit. Her subtle “cyber-bullying” cause and that “I Don’t Care” jacket smack of deliberate agitprop efforts to create more Trump Derangement on the Left. I liked her though and she seems so nice, so I hesitate to believe that, however I think a clear-eyed, unemotional investigative effort by our intelligence experts is long overdue analyzing this entire SPIN information warfare operation blowing across American media 24/7.
The Tea Party effort spawned a whole new cadre of agitprop operators on the right. The Glenn Beck operation was another massive con job, probably the test run for using the large crowd rally format to con conservatives, which Trump is using to great effect.
George Stepanoplouslos, a former Clinton War Room Spin Commando sits as ABC’s chief news anchor. The SPIN FORCES on both sides in America wield total control over American news media.
In recent years, I noticed that The Drudge Report began mainstreaming Alex Jones, featuring stories that were linked to Jones’s site. This took place over several years.
Some liberals were writing about the right-wing media empire being nothing but grifters and they are, but I believe it’s way worse than just the hawking merchandise and non-stop book mill efforts. Many of the commercials are geared to fan doomsday (Flight 93, anyone) hysteria.
We are getting close to Trump moving near impeachment territory and even America’s mayor is now so lost in the scorched earth spin info war that he said, “Truth isn’t truth”.
The POTUS and Don Jr. are being manipulated by women and even the State Dept spokeswoman is a FOX babe, who moved to the top of the food chain quickly there.
President Trump recently brought another FOX media pro, Bill Shine, into the White House as the White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications, so I’ve been concerned all the pieces are in place to orchestrate a massive political and constitutional crisis in America.
Last night POTUS tweeted:
Tucker Carlson’s show hyped this news and that tweet looks like someone other than the POTUS wrote it. I suspect it was meant to jazz the white nationalist element of the President’s base, but even more than that it sent the Left and mainstream media into hysteria mode again. In 2017 Trump retweeted an Ann Coulter tweet praising Jayda Fransen, a British far-right radical. She worked to make sure Trump saw that. This South Africa tweet, I believe someone else in the White House wrote that in coordination with FOX having Carlson hype that. On the Left there’s the Steele dossier working to fuel endless hysteria on both sides, but most alarming is the effort to heighten racial tensions again.
Timelines, oh my, a retired COL is a gung- ho Trump Spin Force Twitter commando – insulting and name-calling non-stop, betraying his Army values -like RESPECT, every step of the way. He was recruited by Breitbart. There’s a former military officer on the Left spewing non-stop Trump Derangement Syndrome too, much of it anti-military…
So many worrying signs all around in the America’s scorched earth SPIN information war and all our so called national security experts on TV do is join in the scorched earth SPIN hysteria.
Finding a way to peacefully and legally defeat America’s scorched earth SPIN information war is a grave national security imperative. We are ripe for hostile foreign efforts to push us into a major political crisis or system breakdown and we have no means to unify America around anything.
Scorched earth SPIN information war blowing hot across America 24/7 is nothing less than a mutually-assured suicide pact.
“Houston, we have a problem.”
