Morning Greatness: J6 Sensationalism Revs Up as Campaign ’22 Season Begins

Good Monday morning.

Here is what’s on 46 agenda today:

  • 11:10am: The President and The Vice President receive the President’s Daily Brief
  • 1:30pm: The President meets virtually with family and independent farmers and ranchers to discuss his Administration’s work to boost competition and reduce prices in the meat-processing industry; the Attorney General and the Secretary of Agriculture also attend

 

Two minutes of hate:

If you scroll down to my section in the MG titled “Civil unrest” you will notice an awful lot of stories about the Democrat’s uni-partisan J6 commission. This is not only because the one-year anniversary of January 6 is a few days away but because it’s now 2022 and the Democrats have entered campaign mode. The paradigm for the J6 commission is the same paradigm used in the RUSSIA collusion hoax. Let’s review the paradigm:

1. The anti-Trump movement (notice I’m not saying “the Democrats” here because the anti-Trump movement also includes many Republican elected officials) needed to create a pretense to wield the government’s treasure trove of force, surveillance and compulsion to use against their political enemies to quash Trump’s populist uprising against Hillary Clinton. In the RUSSIA hoax, this was dust bag Robert Mueller’s posse of lefty DoJ activists along with the various Democrat-run congressional committees led by classified information leaker, Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) Once that was done, a highfalutin, official investigation was underway. For J6, it’s Pelosi’s witch hunter committee with subpoena power. “The federal government/a congressional committee is investigating…” carries a lot of weight with the crowd that hasn’t figured out the Democrat party and federal government bureaucracy are out-of-control manifestations of the progressive activist movement. And there’s a lot of people in that crowd. Creating an official-sounding investigation allows for…

2. A fishing expedition with the hopes of vacuuming up personal communications and files that are unrelated to the actual J6 riots but that are leakable and spinable. We saw so many lies masquerading as leaks during the RUSSIA collusion hoax coming out of Schiff’s RUSSIA hoax Intel. Committee. These leaks were were damaging and sensational. A thirsty media industry was more than willing to assist in the anti-Trump effort by spreading and showcasing the lies without any demand for evidence or doing any investigation themselves. We are seeing this now with tech companies turning over communications and phone/text logs to the Committee along with demands for Trump Administration officials to appear for an inquisition.  And this allows for…

3. Headlines and media click bait to sour the teat. Peppered all over the internet were headlines about Trump servers talking to RUSSIAN computers, Don Jr. meeting with Fusion GPS’s RUSSIAN (client!) honeypot at Trump Towers NYC, Carter Page’s offer of $30B (!!!) from the RUSSIANS to influence Trump, “the walls are closing in”, the fake dossier’s salacious details promulgated without evidence, Adam Schiff and other hoax committee members’ nightly media appearances asserting the “proof” of RUSSIA collusion shrouded in Intel Committee classification…I could go on. But it worked, the damage was done, the public was mislead and inflamed, and Trump’s term in office was obstructed by the scandal. With J6 too the same pattern is present. Here’s an example from today, over at The Hill, a propaganda mill and Twitter troll farm, with a story titled: Jan. 6 panel chair says ‘significant testimony’ shows White House ‘had been told to do something’ What does this even mean?!? It sounds serious but is it? What was the Trump White House told to do and by whom? The Hill doesn’t tell us. And really, what was the WH supposed to do in the middle of a riot? Tell people to stop? Were people scrolling social media on their cell phones as they rioted? What sort of cell phone reception was available on Capitol Hill to even get a message to the people in front of the Capitol building? But there’s the headline and there will be 50 more each week, blasted around the aggregating news sites and apps where people mindlessly doom scroll but never read the article only the headline. The headlines are always outside the paywall.

My point here is that the RUSSIA collusion hoax is the paradigm used for war against the left’s political enemies and we are watching it play out with J6 so be on alert. The combined spectacles of the DoJ’s prosecution of mostly me-maws and blue hairs taking selfies in the Capitol coupled with the the J6 committee members twerking on the media snuff shows and leaking tabloid, cherry-picked details from the fedgov dragnet is designed to detract from the abject failure of the Biden Administration in an election year. How much do likely voters care about Fox News hosts texting that the riot is bad optics for Trump…compared to say, historic inflation levels, empty grocery shelves, exorbitant gas prices, randomized/oppressive Covid restrictions, lack of Covid testing, lack of Covid therapeutics, kids masked up and/or out of school, kids being force fed critical race theory racism and race-hatred and a humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan? I’m betting it doesn’t matter much, but we will soon see.
