It was said that Joseph Stalin use to bring foreign journalists and correspondents to his famous "show trials" of his enemies as essential to the success of them. When arguments that public opinion of Western Europe must be considered during these show trials, Stalin replied Never mind, theyll swallow it"
Stalin was right, many indeed swallowed it...
Conservatives everywhere for the most part understand that most Major news organizations in the United States is nothing more than a propaganda machine for left wing ideology and special interest groups. But more than just knowing who they are, it is also imperative to know how they do their dirty deed less we fall into the trap eyes-wide open.
Since Sarah Palin came out on the national scene in August of 2008, the big media guns in print, web and television have been going on the offensive against Palin, her family and all that she has accomplish with great fervor filled with gossip, lies and propaganda hit-pieces. The greatest weapon used against Palin is the use of FEAR, UNCERTAINTY and DOUBT to cast a pall over supporters and potential supporters of the former Governor if she ever has an desire to pursue higher office.
This is an attempt to influence public perception by disseminating negative and dubious information designed only to undermine the credibility of their beliefs; the belief that Sarah Palin is a strong candidate that can defeat Barrack Obama in the 2012 election.
Case in point...
Enter India Today Conclave 2011 Saturday, March 19 - A prestigious forum for world leaders to discuss the challenges facing the New World. Previous speakers for this conference have included Benazir Bhutto, Bill Clinton, Colin Powell and the Dalai Lama. The Prime Minister of India is schedule to give the opening remarks to the conference. The former vice-presidential nominee of the Republican Party and Governor of Alaska from 2006-09 will exclusively attend the 10th India Today Conclave on Saturday, March 19th and give the key note speech title: "My Vision of America".
Enter the media -
On Sunday March 13: The New York Magazine publish a 'UNSOURCED' gossip article that Palin and Fox News chairman Roger Aile were at odds against each other and that Palin was brazen and contemptuous in her actions to Ailes over advice given to her about the Tucson shooting - something that happened almost two months ago that suddenly reappeared this week for some strange reason.
On Monday March 14: The Politico ran a story Titled: "Palin becoming Al Sharpton?" In the hit-piece they attempt to make Palin politics to be about "grievances and group identity" according to her critics, which is a betrayal of conservative principle and tie her to the likes of Democrat Al Sharpton who is considered a joke, race-baiter and hustler among conservatives.
On Tuesday March 15: Mitt Romney received an another piece of hardware for his Republican-In-Name-Only mantle, the most coveted seal of approval from Meagan McCain (I just threw this bit in just to break the ice a little, it wasn't all bad for Palin)
On Wednesday March 16: Low and behold, a brand new smacking poll from ABC/Washington Post showing that fewer GOP-leaning independents see Palin in a favorable light - they pointed out that these poll numbers show "a potentially troubling sign for the former Alaska governor as she weighs..." whether to run or not in the 2012 election. Of course many media sources picked up on the new poll and compared Sarah to the likes of Nancy Pelosi low poll numbers and other liberals that conservatives don't care much for.
(By the way do you actually think that if Palin indeed does run that ABC/Washington Post will ever have a favorable poll numbers for Palin?)
Well, we have two more days to consider what other hit-piece, gossip or polling data telling us who Sarah Palin is or is not, however way you may see it. Some conservatives and independents will indeed lap it up by getting discouraged and buy it no matter how well Palin may do in India which is on the weekend so if Sarah Palin does well you won't hear much from it but if she was to make a tiny gaffe or something out of the ordinary happened, of course it will be blared across the World.
That's the World of propaganda and we must learn to see it with eyes wide open what it is before we 'swallow it' without even realizing it.
Of course, its so obvious a 5 year old can see it. Every time she either gives a speech somewhere or has some event they come out with these BS poll numbers. Its total BS and anyone that believes it, I got a bridge to sell you. Its purely psychological to try to convince people that no one would vote for her..everyone knows who the media wants to be the nominee and its Mitt Romney
This is a good read BTM. All she has to do is campaign and ask voters for their support and her numbers are going to go up. Such is the nature of actually campaigning. Palin will gain a lot of instant stature by being in a contested primary.
I almost feel bad for her detractors because they have kind of painted themselves into a corner. What will they do when she does well? Call Orville Redenbacher, we’re going to need tankers of popcorn for the meltdown. Palin detractors: you can finally stop the facade and join your fellow Palin Bashers!
I agree that campaigning is the key....that’s when independents and most Republicans will be engage in the political process to find out information about candidates and when a Palin hater say that Palin is a already known commodity and she can’t go any higher, we can point out that no matter how somebody feels about Palin good or bad, she is a star, a star I might add among stale old white bread men, those people regardless will want to see her alright or hear her at these rallies and speeches, that’s when she will get them.
It’s true...yahoo was using the ABC poll to compare Sarah to the vile Nancy...you can’t tell me that wasn’t propaganda for conservatives and indies to consider IN THEIR MINDS Sarah in the same league as Pill-Nazi!
They want us to nod our heads and do what we're told. That's not what our country needs at this point. We have run out of time.
Obama and his administration are destroying this country. We see him for what he is - a progressive college professor in a job way above his pay grade.
We need someone voicing the concerns of traditional Americans. The ones that do not live or work in the bubbles called Washington DC and New York City.
Yes, her extreme star power is what really irks them because human instinct tells them that this same star power could potentially blow away the competition.
The goal is to lose her a few approval points before the speech to balance out for the gains she will make from the event.
I’m guessing that she may use this event and the one in Naples,FL on the 23rd as a springboard into the campaign. I think all of her events after March 23rd are benefits for womens groups or military families which she could do after announcing. Sarah is noticeably missing from the Get Motivated seminars on March 28 and April 14 and 27.
She inferred recently that it may be a couple of months before she makes a decision, but all is fair in love and politics. I’m going to guess March 24-25 or 28-31 as likely announcement dates. Just a guess, so if not then, we might be waiting for summer.
Obama used those failed polices and the low approval of bush to propel himself into office. the country has rejected Bushism not once but twice in 2006 and 2008. Palin as well as the TEA party was able to make 2010 about Reaganism instead of Bushism.
If the entire gop establishment is against Palin she has no reason to hold her fire. She can and she will go after the failed polices of the last 23 years. She can and she will call a pox on both the failed GOp polices and the failed Obama polices. She can and she will call for a return of Reaganism and a abandonment of Bushism, corny capitalism. After all the poisoning of the well by Rove and CK Will and others has made it an impossible goal to capture the RINO vote for her. which means she will have to cast her net for voters elsewhere. the conservative dem vote, the right leaning independent vote that is tired of partisanship, the conservative vote that is tired of the RINOs, the small l libertarian vote that is tired of the pot smokers ruling their party.
the gop establishment by this full frontal assault on Gov Palin has stretched their lines thin, they have no reinforcements and they are perfectly set up for a massive counterattack by Gov Palin using Reaganism.
also the gop establishment by their endless she can't win mantra is setting up a massive dem operation chaos so leftist crossover and vote for Palin in the open primaries “since she will be the easy one to beat”
At this rate if the gop establishment continues on Palin might win all the NE primaries simply from dems crossing over all based on a lie that the gop establishment put out that “she can't win” Now that would be karma would it not...
I’ve been done with the party a long time ago.....Im a conservative independent and I don’t care for the coward party that is closer to my views, but in all actuality its not closer but actually moving farther away from my views because the ‘Only differences between the Republican Party and Democrat party is degrees not kind’
The only way to get rid of Pilosi people is a prison sentence.
Are witches slimy?
I really couldn't say. But I do know that they are certain things that witches just won't do for power and money.
Are you referring to pissant’s PDS threads?
They can run all these stories and hope they can convince people to join in. The fact is they are so scared even at the thought of Palin entering the race. These polls mean nothing when she enters the race. All this analysis and non-stop desperate attacks will not change the fact she is capable of attracting an audience and attention and she will definitely have a lot to say in brining an awakening to the incompetence and fraudulant nature of Obama and the media. She cannot be censored or controlled. I hope she runs. The day she announces will be a sight to see with these people that are so smug to write her off. But they do know better.
