It is obvious to me why MAGA Man Donald Trump, Moscow’s Agent Governing America, and his pet minion AG Barr released the Muller report the way they did. It was to give them the advantage in a dangerous game of manipulation and subversion.
Most if not all professional K-12 teachers will tell us that it is important for the teacher to be the first contact with parents/guardians after their child gets in trouble at school. If the child reaches them first with his/her version of what happened, then the odds tend to favor the parent/guardian will believe the child or at least lean their support toward the child instead of the teacher no matter what the facts were.
This is what AG Barr did when he alleged (and deliberately misled): “After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the Special Counsel confirmed that the Russian government-sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.”
The Trump administration wanted to get the message out first and have time to repeat it as often as possible up to the actual release of the report with the goal to mislead and/or program as many people as possible with deliberate lies and misinformation instead of the facts of the 400+ page report that most Americans will never read.
From the publication of this post, we the people now have about 567-days to reach as many American citizens as possible with the facts; our message must be simple and easy to understand. We the people are fighting a war of words and if we lose, that war will soon turn those words to ashes with bullets and bombs.
Trump has been and is still following Joseph Goebbels playbook. “If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.” According to Donald Trump’s first wife, MAGA Man “kept a book of Hitler’s speeches near his bed.” Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed … “Hitler’s speeches, from his earliest days up through the Phony War of 1939, reveal his extraordinary ability as a master propagandist,” Marie Brenner wrote.
Considering how many lies Donald Trump has said and repeated starting with The Oath of Office, it is obvious he learned that “if you tell a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.” This quote from Joseph Goebbels defines who Donald Trump really is.
To prevail, we the people must overcome Trump’s momentum and smother his subversion with the facts that reveal the truth.
Repeat, repeat, repeat … and keep the message simple. It is clear that Donald Trump is already guilty of violating the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment, Section 3 by giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States when he rejected the advice of all of America’s intelligence agencies.
