The evening news and the gunslinger called Trump

The evening news and the gunslinger called Trump

by Jon Rappoport

Every television newscast: staged reality

The news is all about manipulating the context of stories. The thinner the context, the thinner the mind must become to accept it. If you want to visualize this, imagine a rectangular solid. The news covers the top surface. Therefore, the mind is trained to work in only two dimensions. Then it can’t fathom depth, and it certainly can’t appreciate the fact that the whole rectangular solid moves through time, the fourth dimension.

Focus on the network evening news. This is where the staging is done well.

First, we have the studio image itself, the colors in foreground and background, the blend of restful and charged hues. The anchor and his/her smooth style.

Then we have the shifting of venue from the studio to reporters in the field, demonstrating the reach of coverage: the planet. As if this equals authenticity.

Actually, those reporters in the field rarely dig up information on location. A correspondent standing on a rooftop in Cairo could just as well be positioned in a bathroom in a Las Vegas McDonald’s. His report would be identical.

The managing editor, usually the elite news anchor, chooses the stories to cover and has the final word on their sequence.

The anchor goes on the air: “Our top story tonight, more signs of gridlock today on Capitol Hill, as legislators walked out of a session on federal budget negotiations…”

The viewer fills in the context for the story: “Oh yes, the government. Gridlock is bad. Just like traffic on the I-5. A bad thing. We want the government to get something done, but they aren’t. These people are always arguing with each other. They don’t agree. They’re in conflict. Yes, conflict, just like on the cop shows.”

The anchor: “The Chinese government reports the new flu epidemic has spread to three provinces. Forty-two people have already died, and nearly a hundred are hospitalized…”

The viewer again supplies context, such as it is: “Flu. Dangerous. Epidemic. Could it arrive here? Get my flu shot.”

The anchor: “A new university study states that gun owners often stock up on weapons and ammunition…”

The viewer: “People with guns. Why do they need a dozen weapons? I don’t need a gun. The police have guns. Could I kill somebody if he broke into the house?”

The anchor: “Doctors at Yale University have made a discovery that could lead to new treatments in the battle against autism…”

Viewer: “That would be good. More research. Laboratory. The brain.”

If, at the end of the newscast, the viewer bothered to review the stories and his own reactions to them, he would realize he’d learned nothing. But reflection is not the game.

In fact, the flow of the news stories has washed over him and created very little except a sense of (false) continuity.

Therefore, every story on the news broadcast achieves the goal of keeping the context thin—night after night, year after year. The overall effect of this staging is: small viewer’s mind, small viewer’s understanding.

Next we come to words over pictures. More and more, news broadcasts are using the rudimentary film technique of a voice narrating what the viewer is seeing on the screen.

People are shouting and running and falling in a street. The anchor or a field reporter says: “The country is in turmoil. Parliament has suspended sessions for the third day in a row, as the government decides what to do about uprisings aimed at forcing democratic elections…”

Well, the voice must be right, because we’re seeing the pictures. If the voice said the riots were due to garbage-pickup cancellations, the viewer would believe that, too.

We see Building #7 of the WTC collapse. Must have been the result of a fire. The anchor tells us so. Words over pictures.

Staged news.

It mirrors what the human mind, in an infantile state, is always doing: looking at the world and seeking a brief summary to explain what that world is, at any given moment.

Since the dawn of time, untold billions of people have been urging a “television anchor” to “explain the pictures.”

The news gives them that precise solution, every night.

“Well, Mr. Jones,” the doctor says, as he pins X-rays to a screen in his office. “See this? Right here? We’ll need to start chemo immediately, and then we may have to remove most of your brain, and as a follow-up, take out one eye.”

Sure, why not? The patient saw the pictures and the anchor explained them.

Eventually, people get the idea and do it for themselves. They see things, they invent one-liners to explain them.

They’re their own anchors. They short-cut and undermine their own experience with vapid summaries of what it all means.

And then, of course, when the news cuts to commercial, the fake products take over:

“Well, every night they’re showing the same brand names, so those brands must be better than the unnamed alternatives.”

Which devolves into: “I like this commercial better than that commercial. This is a great commercial. Let’s have a contest and vote on the best commercial.”

For “intelligent” viewers, there is another sober mainstream choice in America, a safety valve: PBS. That newscast tends to show more pictures from foreign lands.

“Yes, I watch PBS because they understand the planet is interconnected. It isn’t just about America. That’s good.”

Sure it’s good, if you want the same thin-context or false-context reporting on events in other countries. Instead of the two minutes NBC might give you about momentous happenings in Syria, PBS will give you four minutes.

PBS’ experts seem kinder and gentler. “They’re nice and they’re more relaxed. I like that.”

Yes, the PBS experts are taking Valium, and they’re not drinking as much coffee as the CBS experts.

Anchors deliver the long con every night on the tube, between commercials.

Staged.

They’re marketing thin context.

There are various forms of mind control. The one I’m describing here—the thinning of context—is universal. It confounds the mind by pretending depth doesn’t exist and is merely a fantasy.

The mind, before it is trained away from it, is always interested in depth.

Another way of putting it: the mind naturally wants more space, not less. Only constant conditioning can change this.

Eventually, when you say “mind,” people think you’re referring to the brain, or they don’t know what you’re talking about at all.

Mind control by eradicating the concept of mind.

That’s quite a trick.

But now, on the national evening news, something has changed. The quality of the elite anchors has plummeted. These mind-control pros are less and less capable of delivering: the voice of authority.

In the old days, you had Water Cronkite, Harry Reasoner, Chet Huntley, Tom Brokaw, and (before he crashed and burned) Dan Rather. Big-time fakers.

Eventually, this devolved into a B-team of bench players: Dianne Sawyer, Brian Williams, Scott Pelley. Less believable—but still fairly effective.

However, now, at the three major networks, it’s androids on parade. Two pretty boys, David Muir and Jeff Glor, and the NBC cadaver, Lester Holt.

The ship is sinking.

Instead of trying to label their competition Fake News, the networks should look to themselves and try to figure out why they can’t find father figures to deliver their no-context broadcasts.

The audience is wising up. The correct notes on the scale of mind control aren’t being struck.

The system is falling apart.

When I named this site No More Fake News 16 years ago, I could see a fatigue factor setting in—not only in the mainstream news audience, but in the networks themselves. They were playing out the string, hoping to coast on their prior reputations. They weren’t just putting their viewers to sleep (their covert goal), they were slowly falling asleep themselves.

In the following years, the situation grew worse. The networks were moving on auto-pilot.

And now, they’re reaching the end of the line. They’re focusing on the only story that can deliver them ratings: Trump.

They fear him, they hate him—and they love him, because he gives them the numbers that justify their advertising rates with sponsors.

It’s always problematical when the only thing maintaining your survival is your enemy. Especially an enemy whose whole method of attack is to accuse you of subverting your basic mission, which is telling the truth.

And it’s far worse when he’s right.

No matter what you think of Trump, he’s delivering hammer blows to the foundation of network news.

I’ve been aware of every president since Roosevelt, and nothing like this has happened in that time span. A sitting president is virulently going up against The News. Not just the content—which would be bad enough—but the people delivering it.

Since the dawn of time on this planet, news has been controlled, for good reason. It’s the source of supposed fact. Important objective fact. The people who own the news have therefore been able to paint an overall portrait of reality for the masses. Which has been their intent.

In this age of science, the news has donned that cloak. “We’re recording events in the lab. We only relay confirmed results, checked and double-checked.”

And now this crazy cowboy hustler comes along, swaggers into the spotlight, and demeans the whole enterprise. IT’S FAKE!

And millions of people, who have long believed that very thing in the recesses of their minds, sit up straight in their couches and say THAT’S RIGHT!

Overnight, the situation turns surreal.

Up is down, down is up.

The bull is wandering through the china shop, deciding which object to crash next.

Naturally, the networks call him crazy, mentally ill, unfit for office, a Russian agent—while they’re reaping ratings from going to war with him. They have to strike back, and it‘s good for their desperate business to do so.

Whether Trump is, in fact, unfit for office is beside the point of the war.

The truth about Trump, whatever it may be, went out the window a long time ago. It was never in the house.

As the network news business was in a long slide from its former prominence, Trump showed up and stepped on its neck and ground in his heel. Impolitely, he spat in its face.

If you think the total effect was to draw people to Trump’s side, or to the networks’ side, think again.

People began swimming out of their hypnotic attachment to The News. The spell broke. Rudely. The swaggering gunslinger was showing up in their living rooms, accusing and laughing and setting off explosions.

And yes, you can separate that from everything else Trump has been doing or not doing, saying or not saying, committing or not committing.

And you should.

Because The News is supposed to be the ears and eyes and mouth and brain of the public.

And now—for several reasons, Trump very much included—it no longer is.

Which is a good thing, a very good thing.

Even if your hatred of Donald Trump knows no bounds.

    “The mind, before it is trained away from it, is always interested in depth.”

    So true. Anyone who has ever raised children knows this, if they are perceptive at all. I called the 3 and 4 ages the age of the whys.

    They ask why?, and you tell them, but they are not happy with a one liner explanation. They want to know more. Why then this? How does that work? How do you know? How do they know? Who is “they”? Are the curious ever satisfied with the answers? No! They want to know more. They want to go deeper, broader. They want more details. One question leads to another, leads to another endlessly.

    I loved that why time and encouraged the questions, believing it to be short. That is what we are told, that it is just a short stage of childhood development. Is it? Or does curiosity, as you wrote, get knocked down, shackled and buried?

    What would we all be like if we the age of the whys was allowed to survive? No one would put up with the media. They would be laughed out of existence!

      I believe that is what schools are all about. Destroying our innate curiosity. Indoctrination. Have you ever seen Director Russo’s last interview before he died? I suggest it. And I agree, I loved that time with my boys as well, and it went on beyond those years for I, as you, encouraged it. Encouraged them to make up their own minds about things using logic and reason(critical thinking) and research. I always told them if I didn’t know, I would try my best to find out.

    And another gimmick in the superficial news, the teaser. Keep people glued with anticipation of something to come, that turns out to be empty.

    • yea, sometimes I listen to Denver sports talk radio in the morning/afternoon on my way home from work when I’m looking for cheap thrills.
      It’s actually painful, it has become a form of torture. Until I actively started learning and seeking truth, I never noticed that teaser. I literally didn’t even think about it.

      You are so correct about the emptiness. I mean, I know that going in, but good god the profane out there who actually listen to this daily don’t even recognize their chains are self-inflicted.

  6. marlene says:

    We the people called MSM the fakestream media long before Trump even entered his candidacy. As President, he heard us and he carried our mantle to the truth. We condemned these fakers many years ago and their treatment of Trump inspired us to be persistent against them. Trump did NOT come out like a gunslinger. He came out as the President of the people. He did the right thing, said the right thing, and it’s not US who are without a clue. It’s you.

    • I am not fond of giving that guy much credit, minus exiting the Paris agreement and TPP (although I hear the next one could be worse) usualy is. I’m still not sure how to view his “fake news” campaign because he has surrounded himself with the same old players, so I see it as a cheap trick on the religious masses that follow him. Yes, poltics is just another religion, and the party that follows Trump are typically religious to begin with. This is the most troubling part of the republican party, because at their core, they are all children. Anyone who believes in a virgin birth is a child.

      • marlene says:

        If you have any basis for your opinion, I couldn’t find one.

        • let’s play, let me eat up your childish mindset.

          Actually, before I continue, do you actually believe that the figure of Jesus was born of a virgin and is half man/half God?

        • and Marlene, if you buy into party politics and actually believe that guy cares about you or anyone else except himself…then it definitely is YOU who suffers from living without a clue.

          I have no patience for statists, especially stupid ones. If you like Trump, you are stupid. Actually, sadly, more stupid than that non-American who just left the office. At least it would be possible to argue that Obama had some semblance of care (I don’t think he does, but it could be argued), whereas it is clear this POS in the office is as scummy as they get. Although, as someone who despises statism…I absolutely love how he’s been shitting all over the presidency. It makes for great entertainment, watching the losers on the left cry like babies. What is equally hilarious is to see people like you who bought his lies like a little child. It is actually a tragic comedy, but still a comedy.

              […] Children believe in fairy tales like government and religion. Children believe in a savior rather than taking personal responsibility.

  7. Sean Thomas says:

    1.) Are the reporters really on a rooftop in Cairo? Quality green screen technology is now available to the masses, so we can only imagine what the networks must have.

    2.) Yes, Trump says some very interesting things, but that is just the role he was hired to play. The stage managers have all kinds of “alternative mouthpieces” because people would get very bored always listening to Jamie Dimond selling them fascist economics. I could name names, but I don’t want someone to break Jon’s ribs!

    3.) What is the real story behind Building 7? It is the biggest mystery about 9/11. Was 9/11 imploded by the same people that exploded towers 1 and 2? It sure looks like the work of two different groups.

  8. Greg C. says:

    “The audience is wising up. The correct notes on the scale of mind control aren’t being struck.The system is falling apart.”

    That’s also evident in that Hollywood is beginning to disintegrate. About time. In my youth, I used to go to the movies for a total immersion in someone else’s world. It was addicting. Now I see that it creates a passive state of mind that carries over into ordinary life. If you want to know how people got to be so easily manipulated, there’s your answer. I hope to see in my lifetime all the movie theaters closed down for lack of interest. The gimmick will have run its course.

    • with this next generation its difficult to tell. even if they stop frequenting the theatres, I highly doubt that desire for escapism into the matrix will wane. just look at how they are glued to fiction, walking around blindly in reality, which surrounds them. It appears to me the deliberate dumbing down has been efficiently completed, the numbers are so vast that the few of us who remain free thinking can’t overcome their animalism. I just see them jumping into that leftist garbage platform netflix or hulu or whatever becomes popular next.

      • Greg C. says:

        HL: Escapism is a never-ending thing, not just in the sense of an infinite series, but it’s like holding two mirrors facing each other and seeing the repeating image within an image. All it takes is two opposite mirrors.

        To see ourselves as opposite the dumb, mad crowd, to look for an answer and conclude that there is none, is of the same variety. It’s not escapist per se, but it is a kind of thought process that is caught in its own reflection.

        In the Fountainhead, Ayn Rand was brilliant in characterizing Roark as a man who could not begin to understand, or care, about the “second-hander” people who didn’t produce anything or really think. He didn’t feel or express frustration at these people – he just kept doing his own thing and sought ought the rare person who could appreciate what he did. He kept creating even when it seemed hopeless that he would ever find another client. Because if he thought that the work was pointless without a client, he would be in essence a type of second-hander. (Ayn Rand also had that virtue, typing away year after year with no prospects for success or encouragement.)

        I write this mainly for myself – to remind me that an ideal society or even a small group, is not necessary. The creative, thinking person just does it for its own sake, and he can be his own audience and critic. Now consider another character in that novel, Stephen Malloroy, the sculptor. He was practically lost to alcohol in his bitterness, because to him, his failure to be appreciated was an injury to his soul. So he became essentially an escapist – he wallowed in feelings of hopelessness. Roark understood that all emotions, to be authentic and life-affirming, have to emanate from within, without reflecting off someone else’s view of lack of it, of the intelligence and imagination that one treasures. Rand underscored this theme in a dramatic way with Roark’s first romantic liaison with Dominique. In real life, it would be barbaric (and illegal) by today’s standards.

        I think that developing the Roark mindset is a prerequisite to going ahead and being fully creative and intelligent. Otherwise, there is always that self-restraint (what will they think?), or the “what’s the use” attitude of Malloroy. Getting back to the theme of this post, that gunslinger Trump, at times, acts and talks like Roark – he doesn’t care what others might think, and he’s not too concerned about whether he will ultimately win. He just does what he does, and he enjoys it at the same time.

        • I dig it man, I can probably learn from that for sure. I do suffer from “what’s the use”, mainly because I haven’t been able to figure out how to stop this tyrannical steam roller from flattening everything in its path.

          To your point about Trump, funny enough that is about the only thing I admire about the guy. I especially enjoy watching shit on the presidency with his childish rants and tweets. I’m dead serious. It incenses the left and his supporters don’t seem to recognize that if the other party’s candidate was doing it they would act the same way. It is a great insight into the hypocrisy of the masses.

          I am certainly bitter, but it is one of the stages. I don’t know what comes next but I am certainly not done with resenting the masses for succumbing to eternal childlike mental states. I find it unconsciounable. However, I am aware of it’s paralyzing and negative personal effects. It’s just a matter of time.

          • Greg C. says:

            You know, I’ve found that a lot of worrying, resentment, etc. can be helped just by supporting the body’s healthy chemistry, rather than trying to solve the world’s problems. Taking melatonin in larger doses (quite safe) before going to bed gives me remarkably restorative sleep, good dreams, and I wake up feeling mellow. The older I get, the more I do these kinds of experiments – we tend to get used to our habitual mood and think it is a part of us, unless we mix things up a bit. Most people just stick to the basics for managing their mood – junk food, romance, narcotics – but those can all have terrible side-effects. I use vitamin D3 (which is actually another hormone) to successfully counter the winter blues. Here we are almost at the solstice, haven’t seen the sun in days, and I’m still smiling, still hopeful.

            • honestliberty says:

              Right on, I’ve tried melatonin. 5mg? I get solid sleep but terrible grogginess next day. I’ve also been told to be careful because it can interrupt our natural production.
              D3… How many IU’s daily?

            • Greg C. says:

              With D3, I take 20,000 in the winter, tapered down to zero in the summer. With melatonin, it’s just trial and error. You start small, and then double it every night until you get the optimum result. I’ve ready that 20 mg or more has shown to help cancer and alzheimer’s patients. By age 50, most people’s pineal glands cannot produce very much. It’s also a great anti-oxidant. Can’t really find any specific downside or danger in taking it.

    “The part played by the Press is to keep pointing our requirements supposed to be indispensable, to give voice to the complaints of the people, to express and to create discontent. It is in the Press that the triumph of freedom of speech finds its incarnation. But the goyim States have not known how to make use of this force; and it has fallen into our hands. Through the Press we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade; thanks to the Press we have got the gold in our hands, notwithstanding that we have had to gather it out of the oceans of blood and tears. But it has paid us, though we have sacrificed many of our people. Each victim on our side is worth in the sight of God a thousand goyim.” Protocols of Zion 2.5

    “The administrators, whom we shall choose from among the public, with strict regard to their capacities for servile obedience, will not be persons trained in the arts of government, and will therefore easily become pawns in our game in the hands of men of learning and genius who will be their advisers, specialists bred and reared from early childhood to rule the affairs of the whole world. As is well known to you, these specialists of ours have been drawing to fit them for rule the information they need from our political plans from the lessons of history, from observations made of the events of every moment as it passes. The goyim are not guided by practical use of unprejudiced historical observation, but by theoretical routine without any critical regard for consequent results. We need not, therefore, take any account of them—let them amuse themselves until the hour strikes, or live on hopes of new forms of enterprising pastime, or on the memories of all they have enjoyed. For them let that play the principal part which we have persuaded them to accept as the dictates of science (theory). It is with this object in view that we are constantly, by means of our press, arousing a blind confidence in these theories. The intellectuals of the goyim will puff themselves up with their knowledges and without any logical verification of them will put into effect all the information available from science, which our agentur specialists have cunningly pieced together for the purpose of educating their minds in the direction we want. Do not suppose for a moment that these statements are empty words: think carefully of the successes we arranged for Darwinism, Marxism, Nietzscheism. To us Jews, at any rate, it should be plain to see what a disintegrating importance these directives have had upon the minds of the goyim.” Protocols of Zion 2.2

    Except for Fox, Trump is trumpeting for Fox. Guess he is a knee-wiper for Rupert Murdock. I believe that all this is an interior struggle between old Intelligence(CIA) and new Intelligence(DHS). DHS is the new centralized power, monopoly, of Intelligence and the CIA doesn’t like it. Power never concedes. The kakistocracy is a snake eating it’s own tail. But it is good that it is happening so that the masses are just know becoming enlightened to reality. But, I believe it is too late. The Agendas will proceed as planned. Will the NWO win out? Who knows, probably in some way, but the West is done.

    My late coffee buddy, Gerry K, had a marvelous idea for preparing to immerse oneself in the Nightly News:

    Every television screen in the nation would have a heavy velvet curtain blocking the view of the screen. At the appointed hour the lights would slowly dim, the room temperature would dip precipitously, and the cries of racous crows flying low overhead accompanied by the sounds of a desolate howling wind would assault the ears as the curtains creaked slowly open.

    The words “ABANDON ALL HOPE YE WHO ENTER HERE!” would flash repeatedly on the screen in rapid succession, no doubt fast enough to induce seizures in epileptics.

    Only then would one hear those hypnotic, soporific and ominous words:

    “And now the news …”

    Sorry, but i dont buy, the Trump, lone cowboy story, what i do see is a man who fallowed social media very carefully and picked up on the conversation that had been going on for some time, more so than anyone before him.
    During 9/11 all news coverage was on the same page, and the vast majority of people were united and prepared (conditioned) for war.
    The news media had steadily been feeding us the political division and now, although still shaded in those opposing perspectives the message was the same, we were attacked.
    15 years later, disillusioned by the Bush debacle and further enraged by a president who seemed to push all the buttons of this disenfranchised voting bloc, left a gaping hole for Trump to step into.
    And i see the same political pandering i have always seen, two sides in constant confict and nothing gets done, although some will benefit, and although it may seem to be a revolution at hand, but for who?
