Recognizing and rejecting gaslighting

Stand… sundance – “Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful.” It is a call to arms describing a feeling perceived to be shared by many. It is another indication that perhaps there is a simmering pot resulting from the continuous heat applied by the Left and this pot is about ready to blow its lid.

“Foolishness and betrayal of our nation have served to reveal dangers within our present condition. Misplaced corrective action, regardless of intent, is neither safe nor wise. We know exactly who Donald Trump is, and we also know what he is not. He is exactly what we need at this moment. He is a necessary glorious bastard.

Cold Anger perceives deception the way the long-term battered absorb a blow in the hours prior to the pre-planned exit; with purpose.

We are patient, but also purposeful. Pushed far enough, decisions are reached. Throw aside the sense of discomfort and bear witness to the evil we oppose. Do not turn your eyes from the hatred focused in our direction. Stand firm amid the solace of our number and resolve to the task at hand.

Those who oppose our efforts are merely vile parasites quivering as they stare into the Cold Anger furnace of righteousness.

Who fuels that furnace?

Schiff’s Impeachment Push Is Detrimental To Intelligence Committee’s Oversight Role. Sara Carter – “Schiff, D-CA, supported by Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and his colleagues, are not focused on a bipartisan investigation of the facts that is required as part of their roles on the House Intelligence Committee , but instead, on an endgame: to ensure Trump is impeached.”

“A current military intelligence official told this reporter that “weaponizing the intelligence committee is detrimental to the committee’s function of oversight. The intelligence community should not be used as a political football to target the administration and it should never be used as a foundation to throw out lies against a duly elected president.”

“The issue here is they’re going to face massive public scrutiny over how all of this is being handled,” said Hoffman. “But it doesn’t appear they are going to stop and they are going to drive the intelligence community through the meat grinder.

Full Report of Inspector General of the Intelligence Community on Whistleblower is linked at SaraCarter.com. It is a PSA intended to address suspicions about the Uraine teleconference complaint. It bypasses the fundamental issue that the complaint contradicted what it was complaining about in its proclamation of innocence and moral superiority.

“In summary, regarding the instant matter, the whistleblower submitted the appropriate Disclosure of Urgent Concern form that was in effect as of August 12, 2019, and had been used by the ICIG since May 24, 2018. The whistleblower stated on the form that he or she possessed both first-hand and other information. The ICIG reviewed the information provided as well as other information gathered and determined that the complaint was both urgent and that it appeared credible. From the moment the ICIG received the whistleblower’s filing, the ICIG has worked to effectuate Congress’s intent, and the whistleblower’s intent, within the rule of law. The ICIG will continue in those efforts on behalf of all whistleblowers in the Intelligence Community.

Americans Have Every Reason To Be Suspicious Of The Whistleblower Complaint. John Daniel Davidson – “The emerging Ukraine narrative is eerily similar to the Russian collusion hoax. Dismissing questions about its origins isn’t going to cut it.” He goes into detail about issues with the ICIG report linked by Sara Carter above.

“Just like the Clinton campaign-funded Steele dossier that launched the Russia probe, the Ukraine complaint is based entirely on hearsay and contains blatant falsehoods and misstatements of fact.

In fact, everything about the Ukraine affair thus far has the same stink as the origins of the Russia probe—the suspicious actions of unelected intelligence community bureaucrats, the hysterical proclamations of congressional Democrats, the uniform efforts of the media to distort every aspect of the story in the service of an impeachment narrative.

But here’s the thing: hand-waving all this away as a conspiracy theory isn’t going to work. The American people have every reason to be suspicious of the emerging Ukraine narrative, and simply appealing to the authority of current and former intelligence officials, many of whom lied to Congress and illegally leaked to the press, isn’t going to change anyone’s mind.

Many Americans no longer trust those people because they have proven untrustworthy. After the fiasco of the Russia investigation, they’re going to need more than assurances from our political and media elites that this time, really, honestly, Trump is guilty of an impeachable offense.

National security risks… neo – “Democrats and the MSM seem completely unconcerned with the risks inherent in divulging a president’s – any president’s – phone calls with foreign leaders.”

“It is my strong suspicion that if such calls of other presidents had been leaked, most presidents (of either party) would have been guilty of far worse than anything in any of Trump’s leaked calls. Not only could no president on earth stand up to such scrutiny, but no president has ever had to.

Why is that? I believe that it’s only recently that a large enough number of people in the federal bureaucracy and in the press believe that the ends justify the means, and that it is perfectly okay to jeopardize the security of the US and the world in order to harm a president they don’t like.

It’s not that no one felt that way before. But I believe it has reached a critical mass. And it has destroyed trust – on the right but not limited to the right – in all government institutions.

This is a terrible development, but such trust is no longer warranted. I realize that’s not a new thing; it’s been building for decades. But now, even people who have long resisted the notion cannot deny it any more.

Global Warming Fraud Exposed In Pictures. Tyler Durden – “When you want to mislead people with statistics picking the start date is very important.” See also Violent Crime Rate in 2018 Lowest Since 1971. AWR Hawkins – “Ironically, one of the greatest differences between 1971 and 2018 is that there are exponentially more privately-owned firearms now than there were when the 1970s began.” Misleading people is an art and it doesn’t seem to need a lot of skill to succeed.

Gaslighting the Voters. Tom Knepper – “It refers to the technique used by a narcissist to convince his victim that what he sees with his own eyes is not true, and hence, he must be going crazy.”

“If the victim catches the narcissist in the act of some foul deed or betrayal, the narcissist will deny his guilt with such passion and apparent sincerity that the victim is tempted to believe him, despite the evidence of his own eyes. The technique is especially effective as a long-term strategy — the victim or enabler is worn down by repeated assertions that what he just saw or knows to be true is actually false, to the point where he doesn’t have the strength to resist anymore.

The beginning of the Trump administration has truly been an education on just how deeply the elites and the media have dug their claws into what was supposed to be a system of self-government, and how desperately and viciously they fight when someone who was elected by the voters to take away their power seeks to do so. But they miscalculated due to hubris, underestimating both Trump’s intelligence and his ability to withstand the whirlwind of lies they have generated against him. Their gaslighting efforts are not working for large segments of the population. We can expect the coup attempts and the tsunami of lies to increase leading up to the 2020 election, where I firmly believe the public will reject such manipulation by reelecting Donald Trump.

Gaslighting only works on the sane whose main flaw is a bit too much trust in others. It is a sad day when trust dissolves.
