“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State [or media. Eds.] can shield the people from the political, economic, and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the Truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the Truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Germany’s Minister of Propaganda, discussing the Big Lie.
Hello Everyone, Happy Tuesday.
Or as some may say, Happy Seventh Day of Our General Election—the first of its kind. By that, if I have to spell it out, I mean the current state of affairs our Union finds itself in, not the first time an election was not decided on election night.
From what I know, God rested on the Seventh Day; may have some implication here.
As my readers and followers know by now, I am an avid fan of history. One of my favorite classes at Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business (which I was recently told by a Harvard High Horse is a bad school. I believe my education was quite proper, though, and I highly recommend anyone considering being a Sun Devil to go there. I digress.), one of my favorite classes, to which I received a 110%, was HST 304, The Rise of Totalitarianism 1918-1955, by Professor Beresford. So, I do not bring up Nazi Germany lightly. And I am well versed.
Ironically, Jobless Joe Biden compared President Donald J. Trump to Joseph Goebbels back in September of this year. Clearly, this was before the General Election Disarray we have been witnessing this past week. Oddly, in the scientific field of psychology, there is something called Psychological Projection.
Psychological Projection is a defense mechanism in which the ego defends itself against unconscious (or subconscious) impulses or qualities, whether positive or negative, by denying their existence in the person themselves by attributing the impulses or qualities onto others. After this past week, it seems that Jobless Joe and his comparison regarding Nazi Germany’s Propaganda Minister onto President Trump—maybe, possibly, adding Jobless Joe’s statement stating the Democrats have created the largest and most inclusive voter fraud network ever—the evidence leads to the conclusion Jobless Joe was engaging in projecting. Such as many other things he has stated and the Democrats have engaged in. And plan on engaging in.
Time will tell, as the truth unfolds over these next few weeks because Lawsuits were coming and, well, they came. And the Hammer that is our Attorney General Bill Barr is having the Department of Justice get involved.
Moreover, as of this writing, President Trump has been declared the winner of North Carolina by…North Carolina, the Sovereign State—the proper institution to call such results. And A.P., still, has not called it for President Trump. Neither have they called Alaska for him. Interesting. See a pattern yet?
Moreover, regarding Real Clear Politics, there was a viral tweet and discussions going around saying they moved PA from a Biden win to a toss-up, but, as the pattern continues, RCP never called PA for Biden in the first place. And RCP has still not called GA or AZ. Thus, from the facts and one of the media darlings regarding our elections, neither candidate has 270 electoral votes. And from the votes already certified from the Sovereign States, President Trump is the candidate closer to 270.
I saw an interesting tweet by Scott Adams (and a funny one) today which was a thought that I had myself, especially after absorbing the knowledge from his book, Win Bigly (this may be the umpteenth time I have recommended this book). This book, by the way, is written by someone who is a die-hard liberal and when I one day meet him and have lunch, we will disagree thoroughly on politics and policy. However, he is a rational human being and we will still get along and I anticipate we will enjoy our debates. Like normal people.
The tweet states something I have been discussing for the past week. President Donald Trump has not only the Department of Justice under his wing, but also the National Security Agency (or No Such Agency), the Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the other fourteen intelligence agencies of the United States under his control of the Executive Branch. And no, this is not to state he is participating in something such as Obamagate. It is to state that maybe, just maybe, he has the ability to accrue intelligence and information we are not privy to, right now.
If you have read Scott Adams’ book, you will come to learn President Trump is a master chess player; he does not engage in checkers. We have seen such things over the past four years, and we will continue to see them over the next four. How many other presidents have not started and prevented new wars and secured Middle East Peace Deals in the last four decades?
Zero? That is what I thought.
Throughout the book, Mr. Adams discusses how Trump uses business tactics in his politics. Why do you think the last four years have seemed so strange and “not a normal presidency?” Well, because we finally elected someone who was not an average or typical president.
Take for instance, something I called at the time, when Trump stated he would impose 25% tariffs on all trade coming from Mexico if they did not stop the caravans coming from South America.
One thing people use in business negotiations is leverage. It may seem cruel to the outside observer, but everyone is a self-interested actor in our world and thus when you are President of the United States, it is your job to be self-interested in the future of our country.
We are something close to 50% of Mexico’s entire economy based on trade. A 25% tariff would have crippled Mexico’s economy. The entire media and even most in conservative media, such as Ben Shapiro on his podcasts, said this was a dumb move and wouldn’t result in anything. Mexico had until Friday to respond. They responded Thursday stating they would halt all caravans.
Moreover, when you enter a negotiation, say, for a job. Or say you are a lawyer negotiating on behalf of your client. You never start the negotiating at what your client actually wants. If you walked into a job and knew you would be content with a salary of $100,000; you do not start the negotiation, there. You should, and this is not legal advice, start at $150,000. Remember, if you’re in an interview for a job, you do have power, and they clearly want you. Act like it.
The reason I bring this up is to detail one of the many things President Trump has been reprimanded, lambasted, and castigated for these past four years—by the ignorant intelligentsia. The reason is that the “journalists,” news anchors, and “reporters” in the media do not have experience in business, negotiations, or much other than their own field of work.
When President Trump during his first electoral campaign started discussing how he wanted a “full Muslim ban” for the United States, the media paraded him as a “racist.” Which is ironic, because Muslim is not a race—it is a religion. Like I stated, not much expertise outside those in the media’s field of work.
If you wanted only a ban on seven countries which are Muslim majority and are the seven countries in the world who are terrorist hot beds, would you start there? Sure. If you do not know how to negotiate. But when you are a billionaire and successful businessman, and one who has played NYC and others like a drum, maybe you start a little larger than you want so that you can negotiate down to where you want.
When you start large and negotiate down, the other party not only starts to believe that maybe, possibly, you might be a rational human being, but also that it seems you can agree and listen to others and that you are willing to work with people. Have you paid any attention to our last failed round of
stimulus Inflation* talks? Who looks more rational in those? The person who came up from $1 trillion to $1.86 trillion or the person who went from $2.2 trillion, to $2.5 trillion, back to $2.2 trillion—and Pelosi lying to the People about what the real problems in the negotiation were?
There’s my lesson for the day.
Our topic of discussion for today is not the stable genius that President Trump is in, I don’t know, The Art of the Deal.
Our topic of discussion for today is the Jobless Joe Biden/Harris “Administration,” Democrat Establishment, and Lamestream Media parading around Jobless Joe et. al. as the next leaders of our country.
As it stands right now, PA, GA, AZ, AK have not been legitimately called by each individual Sovereign State and there are valid legal challenges being brought in those states, on top of more legal challenges being brought in MI and WI. Moreover, there are sworn affidavits from election officials in the cases being brought in MI and WI detailing election fraud on the level only seen in Third World countries.
Moreover, in four of these states, plus Minnesota, Judges ignored not only the black-letter law of those States’ legislatures (and, therefore, the Elections and Electors Clauses of Our United States Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land. U.S. Const. Art. VI. Cl. II.) but felt it proper to legislate from the bench, and extend deadlines for ballots, and in the majority of these cases, state that no postmark and date is required for such ballots.
Such ballots gain the presumption of being on time (funny, odd, interesting?). In the law, a presumption means that a party accused is given, essentially, a defense, and the party accusing has to prove that such presumption is improper.
How do you prove that a ballot with no postmark or date was properly sent and received on time?
Ironically, it is the job, duty, and obligation of Judges and Justices to interpret the law as it is written; not to create a law out of whole cloth. And it is, most assuredly, not the job of the independent judiciary, whether state or federal, nor is it the job of the executive branch, whether state or federal, to usurp the powers delegated to our legislatures and say what the law should be.
There is a difference between saying what the law is and what the law should be. If the election laws of our Sovereign States and Federal Government state that any ballot received after Nov. 3, 2020 at 8:00 pm (of the various standard times) is invalid and should not be counted, that is what the law is. Judges should interpret it as such.
What we have seen our judiciaries engage in, in such states so crucial to President Trump’s reelection and, coincidentally, run by Democrats, is not the Rule of Law; it is the Rule of Men. The former ensures equal protection under the laws, guaranteed by our Fourteenth Amendment. The latter ensures that those deemed unfavorable by politicians will be punished, “under the law.”
It is funny, or at the least ironic, that the people in politics who have been peddling the Russia Hoax, inter alia, against President Trump and the Republican Party for the last four years, especially those such as Kamala Harris and Spartacus Booker; these individuals chose to believe unfounded, and uncorroborated, disqualified statements from the “witnesses” and other outrageous statements leveled against Justice Brett Kavanaugh—but these same parties seem to state sworn affidavits filed in Federal and State Court, under the penalty of perjury (a six-year sentence)—nope, that is not “evidence” enough for them. Odd. We must have different definitions of what constitutes evidence. Harris and Booker are lawyers, too, I thought. We all take Evidence.
Regardless, thus, based on the facts, data, and evidence, President Trump leads in electoral votes as it stands as of the time of this writing. And I have zero doubts he will go above and beyond the threshold of 270 Electoral Votes to be reelected.
But what has the Mainstream/Lamestream Media, even Fox News, been engaging in? I am an avid reader of The Wall Street Journal, it is my daily-old-man read and how I start my day. Even they have engaged in what we have seen since Saturday, when Jobless Joe became, by the media, “President-Elect.” Not a real shock, the corporation that owns WSJ also owns Fox News.
According to the facts, evidence, and data on the ground and reported by the Sovereign States, President Trump is the one who leads in electoral votes. Yet, based upon some other data those in the media have used, somehow, someway, Jobless Joe is the “president-elect.”
Interesting. I have scoured our Constitution, I essentially know it backwards, forwards, upside down, and sideways—I have not been able to find the clause in our Constitution which states that it is the media in America which declares the winner of the Presidency. Maybe some people have found such clauses in the “penumbras” and “emanations,” right where they found the “right” to abortion.
So, then what is all the media mess that we see about Jobless Joe being the “president-elect” if those who are the proper purposes of power in deciding such matters have not even declared it?
We all know that one of the ways the media and Democrats stay relevant is by peddling the false perception that racism is alive and well. We all know that divisiveness and shock stories are how they make their revenue—no one wants to listen to boring news. And we all know that they have spent the last four years calling President Trump “illegitimate.”
How does one, then, find itself in a position to be able to perpetuate such false realities for the next four years, stay relevant by creating false perceptions, and continue and potentially exasperate such divisiveness—in a country by all real metrics is a lot closer to each other than is shown—for their own political purposes?
You take a play right out of the Book of Joseph Goebbels. And, maybe, another play right out of the Book of Rahm Emanuel.
Learn to think for yourself, find your own facts, and come to your own conclusions.
And that even means, sincerely, from this author, do not take my words as Gospel. I am not a shepherd, nor do I intend on herding sheep. That is not my career path.
