Gaslighting and the
Left’s War on Reality

Townhall, by Timothy Daughtry

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/5/2017 10:00:23 AM

Donald Trump’s victory over one of the most powerful political machines in American history has given mainstream America the opportunity to turn America onto a sensible course. The success or failure of that turnaround, however, depends largely on the ability of mainstream Americans to see through the left’s longstanding use of a vile political tactic known as gaslighting. The word gaslighting has been popularized in psychology to describe a form of mental and emotional abuse in which a domineering person denies and contradicts the memories and perceptions of an intended victim until the victim begins to doubt his or her perception

Never saw Gaslight but what the left is doing reminds me of a Night Gallery episode called "Stop Killing Me" starring James Gregory.

Liberals may actually gaslight themselves, as when Obama recently told a military group, “Joe Biden and I know that women are as least as strong as men,...” Is it possible he has convinced himself to believe this in order to justify his policies?

As Reagan said, “It isn´t so much that liberals are ignorant. It´s just that they know so many things that aren´t so.”

Must read. Its simple and not new but we can´t emphasize enough how spectacularly successful the left has been with this technique.

A tax cut which raised the proportion the wealthy pay was "A tax cut for the rich"

A grand failure of government social engineering became greedy rich people did it and "trickle down economics" doesn´t work.

Global intelligence inaccuracies became Bush lied.

All the way to America isn´t and never was great or exceptional.

Gaslighting today is the Left lighting their flatulence to increase global warming...

It ain´t working bozo´s!

I think this HAS been working and continues to work for the gullible and unfortunately there are more gullible people around than ever.

This is also causing a lot of tension with Blacks and other groups. The dems spin their version of reality and if I were Black and I believed what they were saying, I would be angry as well. Blacks have suffered under BO but it was BECAUSE of BO´s policies. Dems spin it that there is inherent racism in the Country that BO was not able to overcome. It´s a blatant lie but easy to believe when you are being told by leaders in your community that it is true, you are isolated from others who might tell you the truth, and the people that are lying to you do it with absolute conviction. It´s insidious and hateful but so far Blacks cannot see it.

Our Revolution
Forbes, by Michael Ledeen    Original Article

The global revolution started with our victory in the Cold War, as the Soviet Union passed away with surprisingly little violence. (Snip) n other words, the United States, despite becoming the world’s lone superpower, deliberately weakened its military strength, and attempted to negotiate friendly relations with its former archenemy and the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism. Obama later did all these things again and called them “new.” I think it’s fair to say that the global templates were inevitably going to shift after the fall of the Soviet Empire, but the United States’ decision to withdraw from crucial areas of the world

Court Strikes Down Transgender Mandate,

While family and friends were counting down to the new year, I was watching a different kind of countdown—whether doctors and health care providers would be forced to violate their medical judgment and provide procedures, including gender transition services and abortions, under a new government mandate. The mandate is a 362-page regulation that claims to interpret part of the Affordable Care Act. It was issued in May 2016, and major portions of this mandate would have kicked in on Jan. 1. Becket Law had asked a Texas court for an order protecting health care providers. It was less than nine hours to

Medical Correctness
The New Criterion, by Anthony Daniels    Original Article

In Russia in 1839, Custine wrote that Tsar Nicholas I was both eagle and insect: eagle because he soared over society surveying it with a sharp raptor’s eye from above, and insect because he bored himself into every tiny crack and crevice of society from below. Nothing was either too large or too small for his attention; and sometimes one feels that political correctness is rather like that. For the politically correct, nothing is too large or too small to escape their puritanical attention. As a consequence, we suspect that we are living an authoritarian prelude to a totalitarian future.

For reasons that remain inexplicable to me, I somehow wound up on the mailing list of a wacko left-wing organization called the Alliance for Justice. (Snip) No, the AFJ is to be commended not on account of what it wants to do — what they propose is just the usual rancid menu of hysterical, prosperity-and freedom-blighting left-wing nostrums — but rather the celerity with which they recommend action. "We need to be ready to fight the moment Trump takes office." That´s good advice. But on the Goose/Gander principle, it´s good advice for the impending Trump administration, too. The perpetually discontented folks at

25 years ago George Bush Sr. was still in office, and so was Saddam Hussein. (Snip) The textbook date of the end of the USSR is December 26, 1991, but for us, Soviet citizens, the dissolution began a few months earlier and happened in stages. Very few people feared or believed the Communists any longer, ridiculing their institutions and their lying media. A typical political joke at the time was about a man who always complained that Communists had run out of everything - food, toilet paper, consumer goods, and so on. So the KGB brought him to their office and

Man of the Year: Chief Trump
Strategist Stephen K. Bannon
FrontPage, by David Horowitz & Matthew Vadum    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 12/31/2016 11:07:23 AM     Post Reply
TIME magazine named Donald Trump “Person of the Year” for 2016, and we could have done the same. But this would have been to over-simplify a victory that millions of Americans believe has brought this nation back from the brink of destruction, and has done so against what seemed impossible odds. (Snip) A former naval officer, investment banker, movie producer, documentary filmmaker, and publisher of the online news giant Breitbart.com, Bannon was a kindred spirit to Trump and also a complementary one. “I come from a blue-collar, Irish Catholic, pro-Kennedy, pro-union family of Democrats,” Bannon said in a Bloomberg Businessweek

Can we talk about that
“My Pillow” flop for a moment?

If you watch TV at all, the odds are good that you’ve seen one of those annoying commercials by the guy who talks about the incredible scientific advancement he made in “sleep science” by developing ‘My Pillow.’ I know I can almost recite the words to one of the ads by heart. I’ll confess that I found it puzzling that this guy (Michael J. Lindell) was able to afford to keep running so many of these ads for what looked, at least to me, like an obvious scam. (One of my neighbors actually bought one last winter and told me

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News after 12 years to take a multifaceted role at NBC News. Just minutes after she made the announcement Tuesday, speculation began over who would take her 9 p.m. slot on the network. (Photo) According to what insiders at Fox News told Gabriel Sherman at New York Magazine, “the consensus seems to be that the Murdochs will choose a woman” to replace Kelly. “The leading internal contenders include Trish Regan, Shannon Bream, Sandra Smith, and Martha MacCallum. Two sources said Kimberly Guilfoyle is lobbying for the job,” Sherman said the insiders told him. Trish Regan

President Barack Obama celebrated the social changes made in the military during his administration by allowing gays to serve openly in the Armed Forces and opening combat roles to women. “Joe Biden and I know that women are as least as strong as men,” he said. “We’re stronger for it.” During his speech, Obama called the American armed forces the greatest fighting force in the world and celebrated its new found committment to diversity.

After eight years of magnanimous humility, servility and deferential governance toward his political opposition, ‘President selfless‘ awards himself the Medal of Distinguished Public Service. Thus, President Obama officially declares himself the greatest public servant during his own tenure. No. Really, not kidding. He did. Ceremonial Pictures HERE

Bracing for an adversarial relationship with President-elect Donald Trump, the California Legislature has selected former U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. to serve as outside counsel to advise the state’s legal strategy against the incoming administration. The unusual arrangement will give Holder, leading a team of attorneys from the firm Covington & Burling, a broad portfolio covering potential conflicts between California and the federal government. “He will be our lead litigator, and he will have a legal team of expert lawyers on the issues of climate change, women and civil rights, the environment, immigration, voting rights — to name just

Megyn Kelly’s decision to jump from Fox News to NBC resolves one of the last unanswered questions of the Roger Ailes scandal: Would she stay or would she go when her contract ended? With her last show set to air on Friday, Kelly’s departure raises a new series of questions about how transferrable her talents are and where Fox News is headed now that the network has lost its biggest star and one of its few hosts with serious mainstream credibility. For Kelly, the jump from a primetime perch at Fox to a multifaceted role at NBC carries a high degree

President Obama has made more than a tidy $15 million from his books since he published his first - Dreams from My Father - in 1995, and now he´s set to earn another $15 to $20 million - or even more - from his forthcoming presidential memoir, top publishing insiders tell DailyMail.com. And high-ranking publishing insiders are talking at least another ´$20 million´ in an advance paycheck for First Lady Michelle Obama´s long-awaited - and highly anticipated - memoir about her eight White House years. A source claims she´s been quietly working on her book already. ´Michelle´s more popular and likable than
