37. I understood that's what you said

And if they do that, it is MUCH more low-key. But I believe they don't even do that much.

But, as with the Orwellian disparity in coverage between the alleged Condit murder vs the alleged Scarborough murder (both were in the House at the time), they generally don't even do that much.

check this out:

Funny how no one knows about this and EVERYONE knows about Condit.

There are hundreds of examples like this.

And I believe I explained the comments above.

One of the primary Bushevik startegies is to exploit the Death of Raygun by linking him to the Emperor*. Repetition, the Busheviks have taught, can spin lies into "conventional wisdom" as easily as they did in 1933.

Here's a Goebbels quote:

"Propagandamust always be essentially simple and repetitious. In the long run, only he will achieve basic results in influencing public opinion who is able to reduce problems to the simplest terms and who has the courage to keep forever repeating them in this simplified form despite the objections of the intellectuals."
- Joseph Goebbels diary, 1/29/42

Still works just the same now as it did then, I am sorry to say. And Whoredruff was just repeating the script not to mention try to get RR, Jr. to repeat it with her.

Do I think Whordruff was issued orders, then sat down and plotted it out just so? No, life is much more subtle than that.

I don;t know how much more I can elaborate. Do you get it now?
