Civil liberties and deflection

Recommended Posts

The psychological mechanism of deflection as it relates to politics is being perfected. In simple terms it refers "playing the innocent". Or the Spanish version of "throwing a stone and hiding the hand".

Anyone who has been involved in politics, be it mid-to-high level, is well aware of its implications. And its implications don't stop there, they flow down to the individual level. Which could be a simple example of someone being interrogated for wrongdoing, civil or criminally liability implied, and that individual strives to deflect the questioning by bringing up subject matter that in his mind will turn the focus of attention to another. Quite common scenario out there in the world where responsibility for an action is desired to be avoided.

It is intrinsically a social issue in its truest form in that lying is then both a means and an end. Fortunately, only a very small percentage of individuals can be categorized as "good liars". Imagine a world where the opposite is the norm.

More and more I've become convinced that the Russia-collusion thing is the latest and most glaring example of deflection, on a grand scale. It has been carefully and meticulously orchestrated from its inception. It has not happened by chance. And all the players are in it from its inception.

Its simplicity is staggering. Collude with "Russians" and then blame your opponent in a political struggle. Enlist the help of global media and spread continuously its dogma. Repeat until the substance of the argument is ingrained in the masses. It is only then that catch phrases like "insurance policy" and "let's throw away the constitution and install a president" make sense.

Your civil liberties are at stake. Imagine a world where deflection is the norm. What would be the social issues then?

And to be more explicit.

Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Brennan, among many others--- the loudest voices in all the carnivalic spectrum, are all in it from its inception. Not by chance or sleight of hand--- by and through a conscious effort.

And there you have it... http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/07/21/doj-releases-carter-page-fisa-docs.html

"The Department of Justice has released documents relating to a FISA warrant against Carter Page, a former campaign adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump. Though heavily redacted, the documents show that the infamous Steele Dossier was a major component of the 2016 surveillance warrant. The dossier was also a major component in subsequent renewals..."

Start kissing away your right to expression, to vote, to peaceably assemble and others that might not be agreeable with your opponent's belief's.

It's straight out of the SVR's cookbook.

The more I think about it the harder I laugh. Because it's a classic double arm's length deal.

The Dems hire Steele. Steele hires "Russians". If things go south, the Dems can always say, "We had no idea it came from the "Russians", we had no control over what Steele would do."

And then start the carnival...

I'd like to see Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, Schaff, Brennan, Schuff---all the loudest voices,  do a Meryl Streep if and when they are asked "When did you first had knowledge of the procurement of the Steele dossier?".

It's expected that they all would answer, "I had no idea that was happening". Meryl Streep would be so proud...

Reminds me of a fight I broke up between two of my daughters when they were young.

 

The one claimed that the other started it, when "She hit me back first!".

I've seen that before.

Call me Libertarian (Disclaimer: I've been called much much worse before), but the butter knife can be made to cut both ways and then quite pointy.

That's scary. Don't want to see that.

Wouldn't it be really really funny if the Russians that provided Steele with the information were of the same GRU group that was indicted by Mueller?

Just sayin'.
