Ever flip on the news and watch them repeat some narrative over and over and over, hoping that it eventually sticks? Take a look at this video.
Bombshell, bombshell, bombshell. We’re at a turning point. We’re at a turning point. The walls are closing in! The walls are closing in! It’s the beginning of the end. It’s the beginning of the end. We’re at a tipping point. We’re at a tipping point.
Mark it down everyone! This is it! – a year later – Yeah, I’ve marked it down and I have more faith in that its-the-end-of-Trump astrologer standing under the darkened eclipse, than I do any of you. For years, these news networks just keep repeating the same talking points, like they were dictated on high from somewhere, and all these newscasters from both the left and the right go around broadcasting it. Nobody seems to hold them accountable.
I’m not a right-winger and I’m not a left-winger. This post is just me holding up absurdity and hoping you’ll realize that the mainstream news makes stuff up, all the time, just to rile us up.
As for the whole RussiaGate, Putin hijacked our election stuff, when all was said and done, when all the smoke cleared and the evidence was examined, what did we find? Basically nothing. In a big recent Congressional hearing, Google’s CEO was placed on the stand and we find out that Russia spent a whopping $4700 during the election! And the ads they ran? Some were pro-Trump, others pro-Hillary, and others neither. They were simply running some test click-bait campaigns and gathering some names and emails. Pretty amazing, for the price of a crappy used car, you can apparently hijack the most powerful nation on Earth… Or not, and this was all completely made up, like most things.
As Jimmy Dore points out in the video above, the left could be talking about getting us all universal healthcare, increasing wages, reforming Wall Street, ending the wars, investing in infrastructure, and other important issues, but do they? Nah, that would actually challenge the power structure and change people’s lives. Just focus all your attention and energy on these fake conspiracy theories instead! Distraction, distraction, distraction! The walls are closing in!
