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.

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.

How the Southern Poverty Law Center
Faked an Islamophobia Crisis
FrontPage, by Daniel Greenfield    Original Article

Look out! It’s another fake Islamophobia crisis. “Huge Growth in Anti-Muslim Hate Groups During 2016: SPLC Report,” wails NBC News. “Watchdog: Number of anti-Muslim hate groups tripled since 2015,” FOX News bleats. ABC News vomits up this word salad. “Trump cited in report finding increase in US hate groups for 2nd year in a row.” The SPLC stands for the Southern Poverty Law Center: an organization with slightly less credibility than Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, and without the academic degree in greasepaint. And you won’t believe the shameless way the SPLC faked its latest Islamophobia crisis. The Southern Poverty Law

Welcome to week three of "This Week In Fake News!" (Snip) 37. CNN´s Jake Tapper Lies About Trump Not Offering Sympathy to Canada After Mosque Attack During an interview with KellyAnne Conway, CNN´s Jake Tapper told an outrageous lie in the form of a question: "I want to ask you, in Quebec City last week, a white right-wing terrorist opened fire on a mosque filled with men, women and children," the left-wing anchor asked. "President Trump hasn´t tweeted one thing about this. Why hasn´t he offered sympathy to the neighbors in the north?" Can someone get Tapper a Google Machine?

The CIA’s affront to Trump
Washington Times, by Angelo Codevilla    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 2/17/2017 9:26:50     Post Reply
The CIA has denied a security clearance to Trump National Security Council (NSC) official Robin Townley without any allegation, much less evidence of disloyalty to the United States. Quite simply, it is because the CIA disapproves of Mr. Townley’s attitude toward the agency, and this is unprecedented. (Snip) Hence, if Mr. Trump does not fire forthwith the persons who thus took for themselves the prerogative that the American people had entrusted to him at the ballot box, chances are 100 percent that they will use that prerogative ever more frequently with regard to anyone else whom they regard as standing

A Settler’s View of Israel’s Future

HEBRON, West Bank — Last week, Israel’s Parliament passed a controversial bill that allows the government to retroactively authorize contested West Bank Jewish communities by compensating previous Palestinian land claimants. (Snip) But for us settlers, the truth is clear: The two-state solution was misconceived, and will never come to pass, because Judea and Samaria belong to the Jewish people. Our right to this land is derived from our history, religion, international decisions and defensive wars. Jews have lived here for 3,700 years, despite repeated massacres, expulsions and occupations — by the Romans, Arabs, Crusaders and Ottomans. And the world recognized

Obama´s Shadow Presidency

Former President Obama is waging war against the Trump administration through his generously funded agitation outfit, Organizing for Action, to defend his monumentally destructive record of failure and violent polarization. It is a chilling reminder that the increasingly aggressive, in-your-face Left in this country is on the march. Acclaimed author Paul Sperry writes in the New York Post: Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.

The Political Assassination of Michael Flynn

f we are to believe the Trump White House, National Security Adviser Michael Flynn just resigned because he lied about his conversations with Russia´s ambassador to the vice president. As White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway told NBC´s "Today Show" on Tuesday: "Misleading the vice president really was the key here." That sounds about as credible as when the president told CIA employees that the media had invented the story about his enmity toward the spy agency, not even two weeks after he had taken to Twitter to compare the CIA to Nazis. It´s about as credible as President Donald

With Flynn leaks, the White House
shadow warriors draw first blood
The Hill, by Kenneth R. Timmerman    Original Article

The rogue weasels have struck. Terrified that Lieutenant General Michael T. Flynn would tear them out root and branch, they connived and colluded, anonymously of course, to leak highly-sensitive intelligence information to destroy Flynn before he could destroy them. This type of operation is not new. I wrote a whole book about it in 2007. I called them, the “shadow warriors.” Then as now, the shadow warriors excelled at covert operations. After all, they lived in the darkness in a universe of lies. Their technique “involved deep penetration of a hostile regime by planting a network of agents at key crossroads of power,

How come no-one is accusing NSA Director Michael Flynn of taking bribes from Turkey´s dictator Recep Erdogan? Not long ago, they did. Last November 18, Commentary Magazine´s Noah Rothman called Flynn a "dubious choice" for the National Security Council because his consulting company had a Turkish client, adding that Flynn’s views on Turkey raised a “conflict of interest.” Flynn had published an article in The Hill on Nov. 8 warning that America´s dalliance with the messianic Turkish Islamist and alleged coup plotter Fetullah Guelen might undermine the country´s relationship with NATO, at a time when Russia was giving Turkey the

Pssst -- wanna slip us some secrets? Within the first week of the administration of President Trump, often-conflicting reports trickled out from government agencies about explicit or tacit requests to withhold information from the public. A memo at the Department of Agriculture halting the release of documents. A shutdown of a government Twitter account for over an embarrassing retweet. A report from Reuters (denied by the administration) that the Environmental Protection Agency was told to remove a page about climate change. Much of this is murky. Coupled with the administration’s unwillingness to accept demonstrated points of data and with the

American Security and Islamic Reform

"Do you think Islam needs reform?” (Snip) Islam does need reform. This is critical to our national security for two reasons that bear directly on the question of which aliens should, and which should not, be allowed into our country. First, reform is essential because the broader Islamic religion includes a significant subset of Muslims who adhere to an anti-American totalitarian political ideology that demands implementation of sharia — Islamic law. This ideology and the repressive legal code on which it rests are not religion. We are not talking about the undeniably theological tenets of Islam (e.g., the oneness of

In Imperial China, the palace eunuchs were given cups (paos) in which their external genitalia were preserved in alcohol.

I cannot begin to list all the fabrications being peddled by the now out of favor and all but exiled mainstream media this past week. John Nolte published a list of fake news by the national media as of January 25 and this week followed up with another listof the biggest lies for the ensuing week.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., predicted Tuesday that many Republican lawmakers will break from President Trump by June if he continues to push forward with his agenda. Schumer told "The View" that while most Republicans have declined to publicly break with Trump during the first month of his presidency, many privately admit they have "real problems" with him. He also argued that some are sticking by him because of party loyalty and his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the late Antonin Scalia´s seat on the Supreme Court.

An “antiracist” poster in a college writing center insists American grammar is “racist” and an “unjust language structure,” promising to prioritize rhetoric over “grammatical ‘correctness.´” The poster, written by the director, staff, and tutors of the University of Washington, Tacoma’s Writing Center, states “racism is the normal condition of things,” declaring that it permeates rules, systems, expectations, in courses, school and society. “Linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English,” proclaims the writing center’s statement.

Nearly 15 years ago, I informed my skeptical father that I was pursuing a job with the Central Intelligence Agency. Among his many concerns was that others would never believe I had resigned from the agency when I sought my next job. “Once CIA, always CIA,” he said. But that didn’t give me pause. This wouldn’t be just my first real job, I thought then; it would be my career. That changed when I formally resigned last week. Despite working proudly for Republican and Democratic presidents, I reluctantly concluded that I cannot in good faith serve this administration as an

Calls to boycott Wegmans Food Markets, a popular supermarket chain, because it sells Trump Winery products have backfired on the Prince William County, Virginia, chapter of the National Organization for Women. A spokeswoman for Wegmans, a New York-based company, told Fox News on Monday that Trump wines flew off its shelves last week. Out of 10 locations, only its Charlottesville store did not completely sell out.

A group of global investors with $11 trillion in managed assets told Texas on Tuesday not to enact legislation restricting access to bathrooms for transgender people, saying it is discriminatory and bad for business. The "Texas Privacy Act," or Senate Bill 6, has been marked as a priority for Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and conservative Christian who guides the legislative agenda in the Republican-controlled state Senate. He said the measure protected the privacy and safety of Texans. The bill on a flashpoint issue in the United States is similar to a law enacted last year in North Carolina

A Mexican man has apparently taken his own life just half an hour after being deported from the United States. Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 45, jumped from a bridge at the border after he was deported for the third time. He was found unconscious next to a plastic bag with his belongings and died in hospital a short while later. His death came as the Trump administration issued new guidelines to widen the net for deporting illegal immigrants from the US. (Snip) Mr Olivas was a native of Sinaloa, one of Mexico's most violent states and the stronghold of the cartel formerly led by jailed drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

African Americans have run the White House kitchen as chefs, personal cooks, butlers, stewards and servers for every First Family for nearly one hundred and fifty years beginning with George Washington´s presidential term in the late 1700s. It was the black kitchen chefs and cooks who prepared the superb comfort food for the First Family and dazzled presidential guests with their cooking. Nearly every distinguished family in Washington had black servants, butlers and cooks in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Presidential families were no exception and there have been no less than 150 African Americans on the president´s culinary

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), organized by the American Conservative Union, is regularly the most anticipated event on the conservative calendar. Although it has become increasingly circus-like in recent years, it remains the year’s foremost gathering of conservative activists, several days of speakers normally include leading officeholders, and it is considered a testing ground for prospective presidential candidates. Over the weekend, CPAC invited Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at this year’s event, happening later this week in Maryland. Of late, Yiannopoulos, a “tech editor” for Breitbart News, has been a regular guest on college campuses and a constant source of

The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. (Snip) That is the white flight that should most concern the next D.N.C. chairman, because those voters make up a more promising way to reclaim the White House. The way to win them back is by being more progressive, not less. To be clear, all white voters matter. But Democrats must make tough, data-driven decisions about how to prioritize their work.
