KICKING DEFENSE – COLD WAR HOT PEACE
MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
Last night, I was made aware there were a few people that were dismayed that I did not address the Oscars and the academy awards ceremony that aired this last Sunday. The truth is that as I watched I was sickened by a lot of the political clap trap that existed and it turned my stomach to see how highly paid actors were telling us how to think politically in what can be considered a glorified employee of the year ceremony.
I can remember when the ceremony was about movies and the love of movies and when someone decided to push a political agenda, the music would play and they were booed off of the stage.
In their attempts at screaming diversity and raising awareness about social issues, the whole exercise felt cynical and forced as if it was a requirement to mention gun control issues, race inequality, sexual misconduct, and all of the other push button issues that Americans are beginning grow tired of hearing about.
I think most Americans are beginning to realize that they are being manipulated at every turn by the so-called Resistance and the answer is to tune out.
The only bright light in the whole affair was that “The Shape of Water” got the Best Picture award.
I saw the film just a week earlier and enjoyed it.
However, I did notice that the film’s setting was during the Cold War, where the Russians were our enemies and the race to get the creature had something to do with secrets that would give Russia a military advantage over us.
I was also interested in seeing the new Jennifer Lawrence film, “Red Sparrow.”
I haven’t seen it yet, but today I read a Tweet from the Department of Defense that blatantly admitted that it works with Hollywood to sell you war propaganda. Not that I didn’t know it already, not that I haven’t produced shows about this but the attitude of the tweet seemed apparent that the Department of Defense quite literally bragged about working in Hollywood, to ensure that the military is only portrayed in a manner they see fit.
While this is a fact that has been documented for many years, it is still largely overlooked by mainstream media sources, who insist that this idea is nothing more than a conspiracy theory.
I realized that there will be an onslaught of films that will be all about the old Cold war hatred we had for Russia, which once again indicated that not only is Hollywood a cynical politically driven mess, but it also is responsible for making it officially en vogue to hate Russia because it appears that after kicking the fence with Russiagate, we can now proceed to remind people that Russia cannot be trusted.
Every government in the world, throughout history, has required an all-encompassing propaganda campaign to keep its citizens in line, especially when it comes to war and the military, the most destructive applications of government. Places like North Korea or China are great modern examples of this type of censorship and propaganda taken to extremes.
We all know that the Nazis were proficient in using movies for propaganda purposes. “Triumph of the Will” by Leni Riefenstahl was a film that was able to showcase Adolph Hitler as a savior coming from the heavens to delivers Germany from poverty and lead them to world power.
Military influence in the media is not always this simple though, for example, major military contractors like Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin or Boeing are able to control the narrative of the mainstream media with their advertising dollars. If you take notice, arms manufacturers have tons of commercials all over the mainstream news.
Now, why on Earth would they advertise when no one in their main demographic is in the market for an aircraft carrier or a grenade launcher?
It is quite simple really — defense contractors use adverting dollars as leverage in order to control the narrative when the country goes to war.
Hollywood creates the air of war, under the direction of the military, while the Defense contractors ensure that the mainstream media will report what they paid for.
The objective is simple, if the Resistance can’t convince you to hate Russia, if their meddling in our affairs can’t piss you off enough, if memories of the Cold War can’t put you in the mind set, then the propaganda will certainly work.
The terrifying thing is, Russia is responding to it and obviously their response is not a favorable one.
Russia said today it has proof that Washington has tried to interfere in their country’s upcoming presidential election. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told a leading Russian news agency the US has tried to destabilize his country ahead of this month’s vote.
There doesn’t seem to be any evidence only that in an indirect way the sanctions against Moscow for meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections is according to Russia “a direct and obvious attempt” to interfere in its own upcoming presidential vote.
Meanwhile as the so-called #Resistence continues their tirade saying that President Trump is Putin’s Puppet, Russian President Vladimir Putin is threatening to destroy the United States with “invincible” nuclear weapons and illustrating his threat with a video rendition of a Russia ICBM heading straight for Florida, maybe indicating that Mara Lago makes a perfect place to start the Nuclear holocaust.
It is so nice to now realize that it is okay to officially start hating Russia again, because after the #Resistance, Hollywood, and the Department of defense have kicked the fence, Russia has responded by demonstrating how easy it would be to win a new and improved global thermal nuclear war.
In case you are not aware, Putin gave a very effective speech to his people that boasted about the new weaponry Russia has developed, including an “invincible” nuclear-powered missile supposedly capable of evading anti-missile systems.
Now why on earth would Russia start wagging their big missile at us when we have been nothing more than adversaries and not enemies?
Well as Putin said in his speech, the US withdrew from the ABM Treaty in 2002, and declaring that every attempt on the part of the Russian side to negotiate was met with indifference and even contempt by the West.
Putin added “No, nobody really wanted to talk to us about the core of the problem, and nobody wanted to listen to us. So listen now.”
Again we now see that Russia is saber rattling, but this time the saber is their doomsday device that sounds like it has been dug out of a silo in the movie Dr. Strangelove.
Make no mistake what Putin made was a clear threat to the United States. We also can say that he also threatened the entire planet with his doomsday machine.
Once again, this is a reason to make America hate again as we don’t take threats like this lying down. We don’t shake, blink or tremble; we react even if we know that Putin’s missile may be bigger than ours.
The War Party has won yet again after antagonizing Russia, after all the manpower wasted over Russiagate – they got what they want, a response they wanted to hear.
It is a response that will most certainly give them enough money for new weapons, and new ways to kill us all.
I am sure that the media will find a way to blame President Trump for all of this, but of course that can be proven to be false.
Not only did we withdraw from the ABM Treaty, Russia has stood by as we amass NATO troops a few miles from Moscow. We have conducted military “exercises” that are essentially a rehearsal for a full-scale attack on Russia. We were caught engaging in “regime-change” operations in Ukraine and around the periphery of the Russian state, and we even threatened to overthrow the current regime in the Kremlin – now mind you most of this was done during the Bush administration, but the most aggressive moves were allowed to take place under President Obama.
The Russians are finally responding.
The people of Russia are probably thinking “Vlad, what took you so long?”
This will drum up votes for the next election, where Russians will gladly vote for Putin, if he promises to send a message to the United States that they are tired of being maligned.
The new Cold War can be declared officially underway as the hate campaign aimed at Russia by the Democrats and their neoconservative allies has succeeded.
We can certainly rule out any peace talks between the US and Russia.
We can also say that the so-called #Resistence is a threat to national security and the safety and well being of the people of the United States.
Through their bullying efforts to destroy free speech, shape the culture, and demand gun control they are gaining the upper hand in the narrative. They are under the control of the Deep State, which has succeeded in forcing us into a warring platform.
Not only is a war with Russia heating up, but a civil war in America is beginning to look more and more probable.
The “Russia-elected-Trump” propaganda campaign, which we’ve had pounded into our brains by the “mainstream” media for the past year and a half is about to have its “come to Jesus moment.”
Either it will be proven that Trump colluded with the Russians, or we will learn that the whole affair was nothing but a smear campaign as it is evident that CNN is desperate because of the latest allegation that a Prostitute in Thailand is seeking political asylum and is willing to say that she has the dirt about Russian collusion.
The prostitute from Belarus claims that she was the mistress of a powerful Russian oligarch.
Hoping to avoid deportation and jail, she claims she has information about President Trump and Russia.
She claims to have detailed information about connections between Russian officials, Paul Manafort and President Trump, if only someone could get her out of a Thai jail.
It is CNN to the rescue – they are most certainly interested in trying to find more ways to paint everything with a scandalous brush. The question is how can they see her as credible?
Again, all of this is being fueled by sloppy journalists that appear to be in the employ of a group that wishes to conspire against the President and force the American people into a state of confusion that will most certainly lead to a war footing, both ideologically and militarily.
It is interesting to know that while CNN appears to be a mouthpiece for the so called #Resistance, MSNBC has received the dubious honor of being the loudest mouthpiece for the war party.
A devastating report from the media watch group FAIR has now indicated that MSNBC’s coverage of ‘Russiagate’ vastly outweighs its coverage of other issues.
MSNBC’s incessant “Russiagate” coverage has put the network at the media forefront of overheated hyperbole about the Kremlin. And continually piling up the dry tinder of hostility toward Russia boosts the odds of a cataclysmic blowup between the world’s two nuclear superpowers.
In effect, the programming on MSNBC follows a thin blue party line, breathlessly conforming to Democratic leaders’ refrains about Russia as a mortal threat to American democracy and freedom across the globe. But hey — MSNBC’s ratings have climbed upward during its monochrome reporting, so why worry about whether coverage is neglecting dozens of other crucial stories? Or why worry if the anti-Russia drumbeat is worsening the risks of a global conflagration?
FAIR’s report, written by journalist Ben Norton and published on Janauary 8, chastises MSNBC for not reporting about the catastrophic US backed war in Yemen.
In the aftermath of the FAIR study, a petition gathered 22,784 signers and 4,474 individual comments, asking MSNBC to remedy its extreme imbalance of news coverage. But the network and its prime-time luminaries Maddow and Hayes refused to respond despite repeated requests for a reply.
This is an outrage.
The President mentioned from the beginning of his campaign that he had hoped his administration would find a way to get along with Russia but for now, we will have to settle for a Cold War and a Hot Peace.
