“WHAT’S GOING ON IN AMERICA?!”

June 1, 2017

As a former teacher,   I clearly remember the problem when a gang of little girls start a whispering campaign against someone they don’t like –

      –   and then come to me tattling about all the bad things their enemy does!   There is NOTHING like the  vehemence of their rather sincere accusations  — which are nearly always false!     Doesn’t matter;  they’re enjoying themselves.

Men –  I mean boys do it too.

It gets annoying after a while.

I’m going to “lift” a sentence from the beginning of the previous post:

I see there has been a lot of hysterical,  illogical,  non-scientific   non-legal pronouncements coming out of Mainstream Media,  Social Media,  and Hollywood actors and actresses.

I guess that works.    I was away from news sources for a while – and then I came back.  It’s almost astonishing,  not quite but almost,  that people in the entertainment-news media who want to be taken seriously are still talking about the Story Without Substance.

The story that every official keeps saying   “there is no evidence for this.”

I made a quick list of phrases  used to apparently prolong this Story Without Substance.

Ready?  Here is a partial list of words and phrases that give you clues about how false/fake the story is:

a new report charges . . .
possibility
U.S.   officials briefed   (but on what?)
unnamed sources
allegedly told   the idea was brought up . . .
it was suggested
unverified       (unverified reports, rumors,   etc)
no reply to our questions  (no reply implies . . .?)
recent reports of possible collusion
news came via anonymous letter
anonymous officials reviewed the letter
looking for suggestions of
the contact was not identified
“reportedly”
supposed meeting
latest claim says  (…  bla bla bla …)
the alleged request for . . .
could be coming from
nine sources say . . .  (unknown unnamed sources)
checking into . . .

 

Recognize these words and phrases?    It’s just a partial list,  you probably know more.

It’s like psy-ops.   You are encouraged by these words and phrases to assume there is some substance to the story that the President or his election committee or his presidential campaign or his family or his . . .   (fill in the blanks)  have colluded with the Russians to defeat the Poor Sick Lady who blames the Russians for her defeat (among other reasons).

No wonder I read in foreign presses that America seems to have lost its mind;   “what is going on over there”?

Not  one fact;  but the accusation persists.

They must be having fun.    Pathetic.   Immature.   Annoying.
