During past wars, nations would use “fear” tactics (e.g. Now Hear This: Radio War Propagandists, neatorama.com ) to bring the enemy’s (e.g. devil’s puppet) moral down as party of psychological warfare. For example, Japan would use radio propaganda (e.g.

Forget Ebola The Only Thing That Americans Have To Fear Is Republican Fear Mongering By Rmuse on Sun, Oct 26th, 2014 at 10:38 am politicususa.com
In America’s National Anthem, the last line in the refrain claims this country is the “land of the free and the home of the brave,” but it does not apply to a large segment of the population suffocated by irrational fear robbing them of their freedom. There are millions of brave Americans whose courage makes them truly free, but only because they have not played into the hands of cowardly Republicans who are terrified voters will notice their gross incompetence. No American is free when fear causes a change in their brain function and behavior, particularly when it induces cognitive paralysis, but that is precisely what is occurring in America. One often wonders why and when Americans became so terrified of so many innocuous things such as who someone loves, how they worship, where they came from, when a woman gives birth, the government, foreign religious wars, or an African virus; all things Republicans use to incite irrational fear and hatred for other Americans..”

Fear, Misinformation, and Social Media Complicate Ebola Fight
Victor Luckerson @VLuck
Oct. 8, 2014 time.com
“…Based on Facebook and Twitter chatter, it can seem like Ebola is everywhere. Following the first diagnosis of an Ebola case in the United States on Sept. 30, mentions of the virus on Twitter leapt from about 100 per minute to more than 6,000. Cautious health officials have tested potential cases in Newark, Miami Beach and Washington D.C., sparking more worry. Though the patients all tested negative, some people are still tweeting as if the disease is running rampant in these cities. In Iowa the Department of Public Health was forced to issue a statement dispelling social media rumors that Ebola had arrived in the state. Meanwhile there have been a constant stream of posts saying that Ebola can be spread through the air, water, or food, which are all inaccurate claims…”
Exposed: French Military Caught Planning ISIS False Flag Attack by IWB · September 28, 2016 investmentwatchblog.com
“…Reports from France indicate that the French military have been caught red-handed in the act of preparing an ISIS false flag terror attack on it’s own citizens – and none of their excuses are making any sense.
ISIS flags, video equipment, Arabic newspapers and a generator were discovered by gardeners in a cave outside the town of Saumur – causing panic among local citizens who called the local and national police, as well as anti-terrorist units.
With scores of police and emergency personnel on the scene, a senior military figure intervened, announcing that the contents of the cave belonged to the military and were part of a mysterious, as yet unexplained “exercise.”
The scandal has added weight to the argument that most terrorist attacks are actually false flags perpetrated by security forces against their ow people, as a means of controlling and manipulating the public…”

Many people were open on social network about sharing their “feelings” on the results of the recent U.S. Presidential election this week. It saddens me of how people can get “profane” on their reaction to the results from both sides. I decided to do this blog to help form a “peaceful” dialogue below and to help understand each others’ background-views on “why” they voted the way they did. Instead of jumping to conclusions and labeling one another just because of who they voted, let’s better understand each others’ background and reason..
I’m open to admit that I voted “3rd Party”, which I have in the past 3 Presidential elections for various reasons (e.g. hypocrisy). As a “Christian”, I believe no party is more “Christian” than the other. Some might disagree with me with this statement, so feel free to reply below and I’ll share my personal reasons for each “platform issue”. There are some values I’m personally “for” in both parties, but same with “against”. I even took a personal online survey (similar to this one-> Where Do You Fit in the Political Typology? ) that put me in the “middle”, which is why I voted 3rd Party.
Why did people vote for Donald Trump? Voters explain theguardian.com
“…I believe Trump will be a good president because he knows how to make deals, deals that will make America prosperous again. We need to bring our nation together. I like the fact that all three branches are controlled by the same party, now we can get down to the business of straightening out our country, taking care of our people, our veterans, getting the economy moving again and repealing Obamacare…”
Hillary Clinton Is a Dangerous Choice for Voters Against Abortion (A Response to Eric Sapp)
By Dr. Richard D. Land , CP Exclusive Oct 3, 2016 | 7:23 AM christianpost.com
“..Yes, Hillary once advocated that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.” However, Mrs. Clinton is accused of supporting late-term abortion because she supports abortion of “precious unborn children” under any circumstances up to the moment of full birth. Speaking of “reproductive rights,” Mrs. Clinton’s preferred euphemism for abortion, she declared that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.” That sounds chillingly like government coercion to abandon deeply held pro-life religious convictions…”
–Obama’s Culture of Life: The Abortion Rate Has Fallen 13% Under This President By Sarah Jones on Mon, Feb 3rd, 2014 at 10:28 am politicususa.com
“..Abortion rate peaked in 1981 under former President Reagan (though he had just taken office), and is at the lowest rate since 1973 as of 2011, under President Obama. The abortion rate had been falling until it “stalled” between 2005 and 2008, under former President Bush.
According to a new study by Guttmacher, the abortion rate fell by 13% under Obama. Declines were the steepest in the Midwest and West, and “less steep yet noteworthy” in the South and Northeast (emphasis mine):
This is what happens when a party uses an emotional issue as a get out the vote tactic but does not really care about actually ending abortion at all. After all, even if they make abortion illegal it will still go on, it will just be unsafe and harm many women. Republicans don’t want the issue of abortion to go away, because it is one of the few ways they can get their evangelical base out to vote. They had better hope the base never catches on to the truth.
This also suggests that Democrats and Obama are not necessarily “pro abortion” as the Republicans like to charge. Quite the opposite. While they are pro freedom for women to make their own medical decisions, they also seek to help women avoid these tough decisions by making birth control accessible. If we want to deal in reality, it’s Republicans who are “pro abortion”, as their policies lead to more abortions, not less.
So here we have President Obama’s Culture of Life, which fits in nicely next to his badge for being fiscally responsible, getting Osama bin Laden, and getting the stock market to record levels. “
#ClintonNation: This is why Americans are voting for Hillary Clinton Rick Hampson , USA TODAY 12:28 p.m. EDT July 25, 2016 usatoday.com
“..Many, however, regard Clinton as more than a gender pioneer, and more than the better candidate this year. “She has probably the most experience of any man or woman ever nominated,” declared Rod Washington, 40, a Monroe, La., public relations professional.
She couldn’t be more qualified, said Jeanne Cumby, 54, of Asheville, N.C., “unless she’d been to the moon.”
To sing her praises, supporters recite her résumé — Yale Law School, children’s advocate, first lady, U.S. senator, 2008 presidential candidate, secretary of state. “Hillary has been there, done that, and wrote the book on a lot of things,” said the Rev. Dennis Ross Sr., 56, a Memphis pastor…”
“..I’m so angry right now. A lot of good-hearted progressives are needlessly trembling with fear today, and it’s all the fault of the despicable tactics run for a year and a half by the amoral Clinton campaign. There were many lies that were told to frighten Americans into voting in support of Hillary, concocted by the neoliberal think tank and reported as fact by the corporate media (with at least some modicum of moderation and accountability) and by paid internet shills (with absolutely none). They brutalized the American psyche with baseless fearmongering, and people are still suffering from it for no good reason…
1. “The Supreme Court will be set back 30 years and Roe vs. Wade will be repealed if you don’t support Hillary Clinton!”
No, it won’t. People made this argument over and over again as though America has never had a Republican president before. As Commander-in-Chief, an American president has a lot more power over U.S. foreign policy than they do over domestic policy. Despite Trump’s assurances to his Republican base that he will help make America the only major country to ban abortion, he simply doesn’t have the ability to do this…
3. “Trump will start World War Three if you don’t elect Hillary Clinton!”
Trump has, in fact, run the least hawkish presidential campaign in recent Republican history, pushing a platform of non-interventionism and diplomacy. Instead of going to war with Russia or starting a proxy war in Syria, he wants to collaborate with Russia to fight terrorism, and he’s said North Korea is China’s problem. He’s surely said some gross things, and he’s surely done some unethical things, but he’s never killed anyone and seems to possess a normal human being’s respect for the value of human life. That’s a trait we haven’t seen in a U.S. president for a long, long time. He wants to make deals and “get along with everybody,” a position he reiterated in his victory speech last night.
4. “You’ll bring fascism/Nazism to America if you don’t elect Hillary Clinton!”…
6. Trump will immediately deport 11 million immigrants unless you vote for Hillary Clinton!”
Trump walked back on this promise months ago and now espouses a position much like that of Obama, who has deported more immigrants than any other president without any complaint from the Democrats. Donald Trump is a WWE Hall-of-Famer who knows how to work a crowd and get people on his side; he’s not an idiot. Nobody’s going to wage a war on 11 million people in a country of 319 million. Here’s an article from The Atlantic about Trump’s actual position now that he’s got the Republicans on his side…”
Current Crisis of Post-Elections:
It saddens me too about the “garbage” (e.g. Mich. students chant ‘build the wall’ in viral video
, Hate Speech Trump America, etc..) going on with the post-elections, which there is a misunderstanding of each one that I personally don’t agree that represents the views of the candidate, which might be for another blog…stay tuned!
Remarks: Please don’t let this campaign or any future political elections ruin any close loving relationships! I remember a good friend of mine that I lost just because I told him who I was going to vote for, which we never sat down for a “dialogue” to express our side-of-the-story on “why” we felt a particular way for the candidate or political party we were supporting…

Green light, red light for Dakota Access Pipeline By Ralph Ellis, Ray Sanchez and Holly Yan, CNN cnn.com
“..First, a federal judge rejected the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s efforts to stop construction of the crude oil pipeline that would run from North Dakota to Illinois, saying the tribe failed to show “it will suffer injury that would be prevented by any injunction the court could issue.”
But later in the day, the Army and US Justice and Interior departments jointly announced they would stop — at least temporarily — pipeline work under a lake the tribe considers a crucial water source.
They asked the pipeline company to voluntarily halt construction within 20 miles of Lake Oahe while the Army reconsiders the decision to proceed under the National Environmental Policy Act or other federal laws. ..”

And I am wondering how much of the intensity of feeling around this, which has attracted not just the Standing Rock Nation members but also, you know, tribal members from around the country, how much of it is, in part, because of that…”
With more than 500 treaties already broken, the government can do whatever it wants, it seems… By Samuel Vargo Friday Nov 21, 2014 · 4:06 PM CDT dailykos.com
“..More than 500 treaties have been made between the government and Indian tribes and all were broken, nulllified or amended. Nothing’s changed. The mere fact that the Keystone XL oil pipeline has even been considered is a violation of law and shouldn’t have seen blueprints, let alone having this North American monster voted on by the Senate and House of Representatives…
Nothing’s changed since then, actually. The Senate vote Tuesday was solely based on GREED and self-interest by Self-Serve-a-tive politicians who have been lambasted continually as being mere pawns for Big Oil & Gas, along with the interests of the egregious Koch Brothers.
The South Dakota Black Hills contains some of the most antediluvian mountains in the world, encompassing over 5,000 acres. And the Black Hills have been held sacred by the Lakota people since antiquity. The 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty designated the sovereignty of the Lakota people and prohibited outside settlers to ever occupy their lands. All this changed, though, in 1874 when gold was found in the Black Hills and in other areas held sovereign by the Lakota and non-Indian miners swarmed the Black Hills. Consequently, the federal government reneged on the Fort Laramie Treaties and took total control of the Black Hills again, only a decade after signing the second treaty.
The 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty, by the way, clearly defined boundaries owned by the Lakota people and if the land boundaries of this treaty were actually upheld by the federal government, a very large Indian state about twice the size of Oklahoma would now be situated somewhere in the upper Midwest, probably between Minnesota and Montana. But Wasi’chu had other plans and in 1862, President Abraham Lincoln allowed for a flood of white settlers into Native lands by signing the Homestead Act. In retaliation, there was an Indian uprising in 1863 by the Santee Sioux tribe in Minnesota which resulted in the largest mass-hanging in U.S. history wherein 38 Sioux men were hanged by order of President Abraham Lincoln. Ironically, the mass-execution came only two days after Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation…”
Broken Promises: Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Cites History of Government Betrayal in Pipeline Fight By EVAN SIMON Nov 22, 2016, 4:31 AM ET abcnews.go.com
“…Things only got worse for the Sioux after gold was discovered at the headwaters of the Missouri River in 1861, prompting a flood of settlers. The tribes repeatedly objected to the intrusions and demanded government recognition of the 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty, but their complaints fell on deaf ears.
By 1868, the U.S. government and representatives of various Sioux tribes convened once again at Fort Laramie. The resulting treaty established a much smaller territory known as the Great Sioux Reservation, but under Article 12 no further land loss could occur unless approved by three-fourths of adult Sioux males.
Nevertheless, after gold was discovered in the sacred Black Hills of South Dakota deep in Sioux territory, Congress passed the Act of 1877 which ceded the Black Hills to the United States without tribal approval in one of the most controversial land grabs in U.S. history.

The revelations of whistleblowers lead us to believe that we know a great deal about the secret world of Washington. This is an illusion.
“.. One thing couldn’t be clearer, though: the mania for secrecy has grown tremendously in the Obama years. On entering the Oval Office in 2009, Obama proclaimed a sunshine administration dedicated to “openness” and “transparency.” That announcement now drips with irony. If you want a measure of the kind of secrecy the NSS considers proper and the White House condones these days, check out a recent Los Angeles Times piece on the CIA’s drone assassination program (one of the more overt aspects of Washington’s covert world). ..”
