(3) A small-market TV station or newspaper. Wikileaks showed us a direct and active conspiracy between DNC and the networks and big papers. DNC provided stories and expected headlines, and media copied as expected. Small stations and papers are equally direct and consistent, even when they're not simply carrying a network program or reprinting a NYT item. The old Groupthink excuse no longer applies. WE KNOW IT'S A CONSPIRACY. How do the lower levels receive their daily commands?Here's an earlier example of orders to small broadcasters. A booklet issued by Office of War Information in 1942. Clearly OWI understood the vectors of propaganda. You don't need to push an area that is already full of emotion. There's no emphasis on Britain or France or Australia because normal Americans already felt those countries as friends. Extra force was needed for Russia and especially China because we were unaccustomed to thinking of them as friends. Since the Switchover our propaganda vectors have been pushing HARD to treat China and Saudi as allies because normal Americans understand that China and Saudi are our MORTAL ENEMIES. Our jobs are going to China, and Saudi attacked us on 9/11. Those are OBSERVABLE FACTS. Russia required a double reversal. Before the Switchover Russia was our main enemy. Immediately after the Switchover Russia was a friend for a while because Soros was running its economy for the benefit of Soros. After Putin started to kick out the Sorosian elements we had to turn around FAST, which has required two extreme bursts of propaganda horsepower to pull two distinct handbrake turns. = = = = = Language sidenote: During the war The United Nations meant the Allies who were fighting AGAINST Jap/Kraut globalism. After the war, The United Nations Organization hijacked the term and flipped it into a fight FOR Wilsonian globalism.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
