Dangerous New ‘Group Think’

This election has shown me that there is a new “group think” in DC…..daily the media is pushing the story that Russia is the same out of control bear that it was during the Cold War…..and everyone is buying into the propaganda….

Look at today….we are told that our intel gatherers have high confidence that Russia is behind the DCCC hack attack…..my question is…is this the same high confidence that we had on Iraq’s WMDs?

Not since the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq has Official Washington’s political/punditry class clamored more single-mindedly – and openly – for the U.S. government to commit a gross violation of international law, now urging a major military assault on the government of Syria while also escalating tensions with nuclear-armed Russia.

And, like the frenzied war fever of 2002-2003, today’s lawless consensus is operating on a mix of selective, dubious and false information – while excluding from the public debate voices that might dare challenge the prevailing “group think.” It’s as if nothing was learned from the previous disaster in Iraq.

After the lies told by the government since 1960’s….I remain leery of their “findings”…..they will lie and deceive to get what they want…..and what they want these days is an enemy Russia.

The idea of an “enemy” is nothing new…..the stretch and the push on Russia is…..to the point that ISIS and the War on Terror has taken a backseat….that is until there is another attack and then it will be full tilt boogie against ISIS….

  1. Reblogged this on A man's search for his calling… and commented:
    In my opinion, neither Hillary or any other experienced candidate will actually do anything to get Russia to lob nukes at us. But the fact what do these new Outsider Candidates think is the problem. The fact is we weren’t really serious about getting on Iran until the Government got under the control of people who didn’t understand that “Hostile Iran” was really a simple tool to get votes. Now that there are people who are actually serious about going to war with Iran we now have a danger.

    The fact is down the line this propaganda will grow legs. Make no mistake, Putin is not a nice guy, he is a former member of real life Orwellian thought police and a man who scapegoats homosexuals and other minorities. However, he is basically a smarter Russia version of Bush and he will go the way of Bush in the coming years. He holds onto power because America looks so scary and that is the only reason he hasn’t lost it.

    He needs a gun hoe candidate like Trump to really fire up the support he needs to continue. However, he won’t do anything which could get the world to come down on him. He is trying to make the world come down on us. Not make war on us on his own anymore than we are with him!

    At the end of the day this is just games like everything else.

  2. This is simply a fight between Putin and Obama to get Asia under the same umbrella as one of them. The Japanese never collapsed and China is taking huge amount of power on the global economic stage. Soon Asia will be united under one union like Europe and America wants to make sure the new super power is on their side as well as Russia.

  3. Perhaps it is dangerous merely to think of it as ‘new’… As you note, this is merely a repeat engagement of the same mind-set we humans have been fighting in ourselves for a very, very long time…

    I am reminded by all the hullabaloo of an old TV show… I believe it was called The Gong Show. It was vastly more entertaining than current events on any stage….

    gigoid, the dubious

    1. Gong Show was a hit…I managed a bar and we had a special “happy hour” when it was on…..great reference…”back with more stuff” chuq
