Fake News Outs Itself

Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the New York Times, said recently that, after the Mueller report, the paper has to shift the focus of its coverage from the Trump-Russia affair to the president's alleged racism.

"We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well," Baquet said. "Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story."

Baquet made the remarks at an employee town hall Monday. A recording was leaked to Slate, which published a transcript 8/15/19. For more details, go here:

So the recording exposes that the New York Times built their news room around the Russian hoax, they complimented themselves on how well they covered the hoax, and they've revealed that the next move is to spread a hoax about American racism and to frame Trump for it. The establishment news will never mention this accidental admission. And so those who only ever expose themselves to establishment news will never know about it. But it illustrates how the news decides what is news and brainwashes the nation.

So the fun new game to play for the foreseeable future will be to guess ahead of time how the news will construe what Trump says, tweets, or does as racist. Trump seems to have gotten out ahead of the news though and has started using the racism and mind-reading tactic that his opponents have been using back on them...starting with "the squad."

If you see the news as real you'll never forgive it, because if it's real it can't be forgiven. Fortunately it's fake. And a lot of people need to seriously start asking themselves if allegiance to political gangs who want to control the guns of government to force their opinions on others is more important than healing the mind trough forgiveness. Political dualism is such a sad, pathetic trap.

As I mentioned in the previous post, "In which ways do you like to use gangs to violently enforce your views on others?" Framing it that way reveals how not to fall for the trap and forgive instead.

The Fine People Hoax and Special Guilt

I've started a rule. Any media organization that continues to perpetuate the fine people hoax is blacklisted by me. I don't need the mental pollution. Unfortunately, the result has caused me to blacklist most media organizations. I might stop following the news totally soon. Fortunately, I haven't had to blacklist any individuals because all the individuals I've shown the original video to in my personal life have come to their senses... although not always without resistance.

The “fine people hoax” is something the media started after the Charlottesville event two years ago. The media always shows the clip of Trump saying “there were fine people on both sides” and leaves out the part after where he defines what people were fine and states “Neo-Nazis and white nationalists should be condemned totally.” The problem with this hoax is not simply that it is a lie which purposefully misinterprets Trump's words. That is typical of the media's propaganda. Not cool, but yellow journalism is nothing new. The bigger issue with the hoax is that it actually encourages Neo-Nazis and white nationalists when they fall for the hoax. Fortunately, Neo-Nazis and white nationalists are quite low in numbers, even though the media often makes it seem like they make up half the country. Here is the video, straight from a news organization that originally posted it. I see Trump saying that Neo-Nazis, white nationalists, antifa, and all the people who showed up looking for a physical fight are bad while normal people who showed up just because they do or don't like old statues are fine.

In this world, the first law of chaos (that the truth is different for everyone) rules. People who project guilt on Trump and thus have a special hate relationship with him see him as bad; people who project innocence on Trump and have a special love relationship with him see him as good. There are news sources that one can go to in order to project guilt on Trump and others (a much smaller selection) to project innocence. If the goal is guilt, the mind will try to filter everything to make the case for guilt. If the goal is innocence, the mind will try to filter everything to make the case for innocence.

Forgive me, but I look for the innocence without the specialness. And although innocence doesn't always correspond with the illusory world, innocence is the path to ultimate truth. For instance, just because a person insists 3-2=2 that doesn't make a person guilty... perhaps ill-informed but not guilty. Nonetheless, on the level of form, if a person uses force on you to make you agree that 3-2=2, that's not civilized behavior. Force is barbaric. Civilization is voluntary. Most of the time people don't use force like that. But most people do try to engage in such behavior when it comes to government. In that sense, politics is a loser game. To play the game is to condone force; it's war and all victories are incomplete and fleeting. The Charlottesville event was a microcosm of the loser game of politics and government.

When someone asks, "What are your politics?", what they are asking is, "In which ways do you like to use gangs to violently enforce your views on others?"

So, I don't have any special sympathy for those who perpetuate loser games of force. It's always two sides of the same illusory coin to me. If you don't like people initiating force on others, take that stance; stop cherry picking subjective ideas of good force versus bad force. And if you want to forgive, do that, stop cherry picking innocence.

Forgiving the Fake News Formula

This was a very interesting little segment because it exposed the formula for what the establishment media so often tries to pass off as news. The formula isn't usually this obvious. But the way Rev. Owens kept responding to Don Lemon of CNN made it obvious.

Here is the formula and it exists in both left wing and right wing fake news.

1) State the hallucination you want to believe and want your viewers to believe.
2) Ask the guest to agree with your hallucination.
3) If the guest disagrees, attack the guest's character.
4) Ask the guest to agree with your hallucination again.
5) If the guest disagrees, attack the guest's character again.
6) Repeat until the guest agrees with your hallucination or time runs out.

And that's what passes for news. The beauty of it all is that once you accept that it is fake, not only in the big picture but also in the little picture, it is easy to forgive. Don't make it real, accept that it is fake. News is editorial hallucination.
