The most basic tool of propaganda is omission. “Out of sight, out of mind”…unless that is too conceptual and too anchored in its bias, to be easily generalized to apply to this practice.
I tell y’all, we are are being whipped by one consequential “¿white lie” one distortion, obfuscation, misrepresentation, etc, and one omission at a time; en junto into unthinking pulp, day after day. After a while it all ads up to unregistered by the public majority fiascos — “unregistered” clearly the key. Creating the cliff in the first place, then using it to divest himself of leverage — who here believes that he would actually veto a Republican laid feast for War, Wall Street and their client/employer corporations?
The mentality of partisan zombies is such that whenever they are sold out by their leaders, they reduce to the infantilism of bundles of joy in a peek-a-boo game, closing their eyes shut behind their palms and believing themselves invisible… truth, reality, begone! Denial, omission and refusal, all kick into gear and the ”Republicans made him do it” petard is trotted out to collapse the access to this Obama laid bankers banquet, bristling with drones, missiles and rife with psycho-sociopathy, and then some…
I think it would be wise for us to start collecting the bits and pieces of likely policies which this administration hopes to deliver as his offerings to his future employers for helping in his reelection effort, and disseminate links liberally.
Here are two things, off the bat, to expect in the next 2-3 quarters:
“President Barack Obama said Tuesday that while tax rates must go up for a “fiscal cliff” deal, it may be possible to lower rates at the top end of the scale late next year as part of tax reforms that would close loopholes and limit deductions.
“Let’s let those go up,” Obama told Bloomberg Television in an interview, referring to tax rates for the wealthiest Americans.”
“And then let’s set up a process with a time certain, at the end of 2013 or the fall of 2013, where we work on tax reform, we look at what loopholes and deduction both Democrats and Republicans are willing to close, and it’s possible that we may be able to lower rates by broadening the base at that point.”
“The remarks, which reiterated a position that White House officials have expressed privately, is designed to give Republicans an opportunity to lower rates for the rich, but only after they rise at year’s end when Bush-era tax cuts expire.” - GOP ‘fiscal cliff’ plan echoes failed budget talks
