Gaslighting: Technocracy’s Preferred Weapon of War

Gaslighting: Technocracy’s Preferred Weapon of War
by Linda Goudsmit

It is my opinion that the Democrat bill, For the People Act 2021 H.R. 1 – 117th Congress (2021-2022), a laughable title, is the fatal blow to free and fair elections, and the end of the United States of America as we know it.

In case you think I am exaggerating, consider this checklist:

● The coronavirus “pandemic” was an economic bioweapon designed to collapse Trump’s roaring U.S. economy, terrify Americans into submission, and justify mail-in ballots. The pandemic is and always was political medicine disguised as public health ✔︎

● The mail-in ballots augmented the digital interference via Dominion Voting Systems/software to steal the 2020 election ✔︎

● The stolen election installed China-centric puppet Joe Biden ✔︎

● Biden’s administration can now pack the court and enable imposition of the lethal For the People Act of 2021, which puts the Uniparty of corrupt Democrats, Republicans in name only (RINOs), and Americans in name only (AINOs), in control of U.S. elections in perpetuity ✔︎

● The globalist Uniparty will have succeeded in establishing planetary governance through “legal” means by duping the public with catastrophic humanitarian hoaxes that have deceitful names like “For the People Act 2021.” No bullets required ✔︎

I am witnessing the greatest, freest republic on earth being transformed into a technocracy that resembles communist China, the most oppressive regime on earth. The coordinated disinformation campaign of the Democrat/technocrat/globalist narrative is an orchestrated effort to make Americans believe the unbelievable, and accept the unacceptable.

The Biden administration and its corrupt, self-serving politicians will sacrifice the country not to be exposed. The useful idiots who support the Biden/Harris ticket are seduced by empty promises, ignore oppressive actions, and are fooled by a communist Chinese dictator wearing a suit.

Bertrand Russell told the world in his 1952 classic, The Impact of Science on Society, that the one with the science rules the world. That was the 20th century – this is the 21st. Today, the science is digital technology, and the information is distributed by the colluding Internet behemoths over social, mainstream, and entertainment media.

The republic will fall in a domestic information war fought without bullets. The science is digital, and technocrats are the most dangerous people on the planet. The ones who control the information, control the world – all for our own good of course.

This brings me to an extraordinary essay written by an unidentified author, that examines the information and the preferred method for information control. It is called gaslighting, and its specialty is cognitive dissonance.

Cognitive dissonance is a theory developed in the 1950s by American psychologist Leon Festiger, who said that inconsistency between thoughts or between thoughts and actions leads to discomfort (dissonance) which motivates changes in thoughts and behavior. When the cognitive dissonance becomes too overwhelming the person turns one of the thoughts off. People cannot tolerate double vision, and they cannot tolerate inconsistency – they seek homeostasis.

Gaslighting by unknown author

The term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation of a victim by her husband in Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play Gas Light, and the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944. In the story, the husband attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment and insisting that she is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she points out these changes. The play’s title alludes to how the abusive husband slowly dims the gas lights in their home, while pretending nothing has changed, in an effort to make his wife doubt her own perceptions. The wife repeatedly asks her husband to confirm her perceptions about the dimming lights, but in defiance of reality, he keeps insisting that the lights are the same and instead it is she who is going insane.

Today we are living in a perpetual state of gaslighting. The reality that we are being told by the media is at complete odds with what we are seeing with our own two eyes. And when we question the false reality that we are being presented, or we claim that what we see is that actual reality, we are vilified as racist or bigots or just plain crazy. You’re not racist. You’re not crazy. You’re being gaslighted.

New York State has twice as many deaths from Covid-19 than any other state, and New York has accounted for one fifth of all Covid-19 deaths, but we are told that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has handled the pandemic better than any other governor. But if we support policies of Governors whose states had only a fraction of the infections and deaths as New York, we’re called anti-science and want people to die. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

We see mobs of people looting stores, smashing windows, setting cars on fire and burning down buildings, but we are told that these demonstrations are peaceful protests, and when we call this destruction of our cities, riots, we are called racists. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

We see the major problem destroying many inner-cities is crime; murder, gang violence, drug dealing, drive-by shootings, armed robbery, but we are told that it is not crime, but the police that are the problem in the inner-cities. We are told we must defund the police and remove law enforcement from crime-riddled cities to make them safer But if we advocate for more policing in cities overrun by crime, we are accused of being white supremacists and racists. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

The United States of America accepts more immigrants than any other country in the world. The vast majority of the immigrants are “people of color”, and these immigrants are enjoying freedom and economic opportunity not available to them in their country of origin, but we are told that the United States is the most racist and oppressive country on the planet, and if we disagree, we are called racist and xenophobic. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Capitalist countries are the most prosperous countries in the world. The standard of living is the highest in capitalist countries. We see more poor people move up the economic ladder to the middle and even the wealthy class through their effort and ability in capitalist countries than any other economic system in the world, but we are told capitalism is an oppressive system designed to keep people down. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Communist countries killed over 100 million people in the 20th century. Communist countries strip their citizens of basic human rights, dictate every aspect of their lives, treat their citizens as slaves, and drive their economies into the ground, but we are told that Communism is the fairest, most equitable, freest, and most prosperous economic system in the world. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

The most egregious example of gaslighting is the concept of “white fragility”. You spend your life trying to be a good person, trying to treat people fairly and with respect. You disavow racism and bigotry in all its forms. You judge people solely on the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. You don’t discriminate based on race or ethnicity. But you are told you are a racist, not because of something you did or said, but solely because of the color of your skin. You know instinctively that charging someone with racism because of their skin color is itself racist. You know that you are not racist, so you defend yourself and your character, but you are told that your defense of yourself is proof of your racism. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Gaslighting has become one of the most pervasive and destructive tactics in American politics. It is the exact opposite of what our political system was meant to be. It deals in lies and psychological coercion, and not the truth and intellectual discourse. If you ever ask yourself if you’re crazy, you are not. Crazy people aren’t sane enough to ask themselves if they’re crazy. So, trust yourself, believe what’s in your heart. Trust your eyes over what you are told. Never listen to the people who tell you that you are crazy, because you are not, you’re being gaslighted.

Sophocles said: ‘What people believe prevails over the truth.’ And that’s what the media is trying to exploit.

Ironically, this excellent essay on gaslighting dramatizes the description of America’s Civil War II presented in my 2011 philosophy book, Dear America: Who’s Driving the Bus?

“Civil War II is not a race war, an economic war, or a war between states. It is a psychological battle between states of mind that will determine who has the power in our society, who is in control (p.13). . . . Civil War II begins as a personal, internal war and eventually finds its way into external society.” (p.15)

Gaslighting is the deliberate, psychological weapon being used by the enemies of America against rational adult Americans. Rational adults live in the world of objective reality/facts. The goal of gaslighting is to reduce rational adults to childlike thinking, the world of subjective reality/feelings, where regressed adults believe what they are told and can be easily controlled. Gaslighting seeks to drive rational adults insane—into the world of subjective reality.

I wrote Dear America in an attempt to help people understand their behavior, so that they would have the tools to change their behavior. I never imagined in 2011 that the enemies of American sovereignty would use psychological manipulation against American citizens for political gain.

In 2020, I wrote a political sequel to Dear America in advance of the pivotal presidential election. The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness’, exposes the sinister, coordinated, interconnecting attacks on America and our hold on objective reality, deceitfully disguised as altruism.

Gaslighting is the weapon of choice being used against Americans in an effort to force them into subjective reality where they will accept the 2020 election coup, installation of the illegitimate Biden/Harris administration, and the imposition of a totalitarian technocracy of China-centric Democrat/globalist rule.

The defense against gaslighting is knowing that you are being gaslit. From the film Gaslight, “You’re not going out of your mind! You’re slowly and systematically being driven out of your mind.”

We must hold onto objective reality in America to save the republic. The alternative is the dystopian nightmare of globalist technocracy.

Leftist ‘Journalists’ and Media Outlets: Quite Far From Impartial and Objective

The Left grants free passes to Joe Biden for his legions of treasonous, immoral, and illegal transgressions.

Published

on

Hollywood loves to portray leftist media outlets, newspapers, and journalists as fair and impartial. Indeed, there is no other way that these institutions and such individuals have been portrayed, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. A recent example is the movie She Said, which is the latest in a long line of productions that extol the virtues of one of the nation’s oldest newspapers, the New York Times.

Starring Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kavan, Patricia Clarkson, Andre Braugher, and Ashley Judd, as herself, She Said is a story about the New York Times investigation of Harvey Weinstein. Some of the heartfelt testimony of the people the reporters interviewed are quite touching. Yet, the movie oversells the impact of the Times reporting. Investigative reporter Ronan Farrow had already published a major, professional, factual expose on Weinstein in the New Yorker.

Impartial, Caring, Concerned People?

She Said goes out of its way to present the New York Times editorial staff as carefully line-editing stories, and as impartial, caring, concerned people, interested only in truth and in getting articles right before publishing them. A major case in point is how veteran actor Andre Braugher portrays Dean Baquet, who served as the executive editor of Times from May 2014 to June 2022. Baquet is depicted as the voice of reason, proceeding with calm, cool clarity.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Antifa is back in force

In reality, Baquet is one of the major players on earth who kept the now thoroughly-debunked ‘Trump Collusion with Russia’ hoax alive and along with Adam Schiff did major damage to this country. For three years, and without evidence, pretty much daily the Times falsely claimed that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

The hopelessly biased Baquet decided to switch gears after the Mueller Report imploded. At Baquet’s direction, the Times would shift its focus of its coverage from the ‘Trump-Russia affair’ to the president’s ‘alleged racism.’

Not a Journalist, in Any Way

“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well,” Baquet said, rather proudly, apparently grossly unaware of the historically profound idiocy of his statement. “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.” A truthful story?

Through daily erroneous reporting, the ‘newspaper of record’ would now seek to expose ‘the racism’ of President Trump, which, to this day, it has not proven.

Baquet is not a journalist in any sense of the word; not even close. He is a shill of the Democrat party; what Vladimir Lenin termed a ‘useful idiot.’ Keep this in mind as you watch this otherwise engaging movie, and then ask yourself this: Where is the Times in relation to Joe Biden?

Baquet remained in his post for the first 17 months of the Biden administration. While the Times and the Left in general are perpetually eager to identify, dissect, catalog, and endlessly detail the faults of Donald Trump (real, imagined, or most concocted out of whole cloth), they deny or downplay a mountain of misdeeds by Joe Biden, as they also did with Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton.

Lifetime Free Passes

Many pundits now exclaim that to block Biden from running in 2024, the Times and the leftist media machine in general have now turned on him. The current classified documents scandal aside, the Left grants free passes to Joe Biden for the legions of transgressions in his life. They overlook or downplay that he cheated in college, cheated in previous political campaigns, is a serial liar, and worse. All of this well-documented. They ignore, contort, or censor news that he has made legions of racist statements for his whole political career; e.g., “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

The Left belittles or ignores Tara Reade’s quite credible sexual assault accusation against Joe Biden, and that of seven other women, as well. They pretend that Creepy Uncle Joe does not have a fetish for sniffing little girls’ hair. They pretend that Biden does not constantly invade the personal space of females.

The Left ignores solid reporting and extensive documentation indicating the Biden family received millions of dollars via influence peddling to Communist China, as well as from Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, and, above all, Ukraine. They will never acknowledge that Biden is an enabler for both his brother James and his son Hunter, and that Biden is credibly accused of selling out the U.S. They excuse the multiple batches of classified documents found recently in Biden’s domains.

Above it All

The Left especially avoids referring to any signs that Biden is suffering from ever-worsening dementia, despite his numerous mental lapses on the world stage.

In short, prior to the ever-growing classified documents scandal, leftist journalists and media outlets, constantly demonstrated how far they are from being impartial and objective. They had, defacto, deemed Democrat Joe Biden to be above the law, and now are actively undermining his continuing political aspirations.

Mini-Movie Reviews, 5

Be wary of the hopelessly biased “She Says”

Mini-Movie Reviews, 5

In this last third of the month, here are three more reviews for your edification:

Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris — starring Leslie Manville as a post WWII widow, is the ultimate chick flick for seniors, where luck abounds at every turn. Everything either goes well, or it goes awry and then turns out well. Watch this if you want to see something fairly entertaining and light-hearted.

Avatar: The Way of Water — is an overwrought, 3-hour ‘comic book,’ put on the big screen, primarily for 14 to 18 year old boys. I would be thoroughly amazed if anybody on my movie review list could sit through 3 hours of this, let alone half that time. There is nothing thematically inspiring here. The actors are good, but the plot is thin and predictable. While the production is likely to win numerous Oscars for technical achievements, that is all it could ever win.
