The manipulation of and the distraction caused by the upcoming elections will grab more and more headlines over the next several months.
The Republican National Convention is just a week and a half away. The Democratic National Convention takes place the following week.
The political posturing and heavy discussion of irrelevant items made to seem important will fill the airwaves, print media, and information superhighway.
Something of actual importance may even take place.
However, if it does, you will have to look closely to see it because it will be delivered with “plausible deniability.”
This term goes back to the Kennedy Administration when, according to Wikipedia, it was used to describe “the withholding of information from senior officials in order to protect them from repercussions in the event that illegal or unpopular activities by the CIA became public knowledge.”
A sports organization uses this technique when it announces its complete support for its coach just prior to firing him.
Government uses this technique when it makes two announcements that contradict each other
For example, the post linked here reprints two articles. One quotes Finland’s foreign minister saying the country is preparing for the break-up of the euro. The other quotes the country’s minister for European affairs and foreign trade saying that Finland is 100% committed to the euro.
Stephen Cook, of the 2012 Scenario, comments on the contradiction.
My gut tells me this may be the new way things are being reported, as the new financial system is readied – and the public are, too. By having conflicting stories, you float the truth and the non-truth within the same government, so the truth still gets out; but the country saves face with the current powers that be… interesting strategy indeed.
It is the strategy of plausible deniability on steroids.
Report the story from so many different angles that no one really knows what the truth is. This technique keeps the general public confused and uninvolved.
This appears to be what the Democrats are doing with Hillary Clinton.
However, for a non-story, it certainly continues to earn attention. The article linked here says Hillary wants to step aside for four years. She wants to run in 2016. She needs time to prepare by losing weight and regaining her energy.
This keeps her in the public spotlight, in case the Democrats have a sudden need for her to fill a void on the ticket. In addition, it allows the Democrats to say this is not an option so that if she replaces Biden or Obama, it will have the desired effect of manipulating the election.
By the way, I’ve noticed that politicians are not the only people who use this plausible deniability to their benefit. It seems that lightworkers have fallen into this trap over the past week or so. I’ll write about my observations in tomorrow’s article.
