Although some people see hope, as if brains are being grown by the mindless Trumpies who cheer ever tweet their Massa makes, I don’t.
I don’t because I had a very peculiar experiences some years ago.
Imagine a woman of sixty who tells you a story she absolutely believes. You happen to know the events, the environment. You prove to her that the events she described could not have happened. She fell silent. Then, as you wait, she ‘reboots’ and returns with the same foolishness plus she is not speaking to you any more.
It has been proven, beyond doubt, that Paul Manafort was the political advisor for a previous Ukraine President. It has been proven, beyond a doubt that shell company was used to collect money for Manafort.
Any spin you want to put on the story, go ahead. But it is true. It happened.
Now how does a person, running for President, hire a man who has tight links with the Pro-Russian deposed President of the Ukraine as his campaign manager? How does he do it?
Trump knows he can play the American people like a piccolo. He’s already gotten them under his mind control. He started early by doing the ‘Five Lights’ trick. For those that don’t remember it, Captain Picard was being tortured. Four lights were shined on him and he was asked; ‘how many lights?’ He said Four and was zapped. He was told there were Five lights.
This Five Light trick comes from 1984, the dystopian novel by George Orwell. In it, people were to say, 2 + 2 = 5. This was the ‘double think’ which allowed their brains to be controlled by ‘Big Brother’.
Trump began playing with the minds of Americans from the day of inauguration with the Crowd trick, then focused on ‘Fake News’; that is all the most respectable news services in the world were Fake News, and the twisted biased second rate right wing rubbish was ‘real’.
Everything Trump has done has been a game with the brains of Americans. He had idiots from Syria supporting him, yet sent their relatives back to Syria. He’s had Blacks running behind him, while Black lives cease to matter and the over 200 murders by the police don’t even get a sentence in the newspapers.
Despite the various alerts of the connection between the Kremlin and Trump’s campaign, they’ve been slapped away as mosquitoes. But this one can’t be slapped away. This one can’t be explained away.
So the Trumpies. like that woman I mention, fall silent so as to reboot and come back with the same rubbish they’ve been vomiting since the election.
