The great (Dis)Information War continues to rage all around us

Every now and again, social media facilitates some incredible exchanges of ideas and concepts, if you can just get past all of the Candy Crush requests and liberal lunatics attempting to organize pedantic protests.

Twitter has been the hotbed of free speech and free thought in recent years, with human beings interacting with one another in real time, over any distance that we can currently travel in the universe.  This incredibly powerful reality has been reduced to cat videos and Farm Ville in some arenas, but there are still users out there making the most of their digital soapbox.

One such social media magnate is @GalacticRedPill on Twitter, who just today dropped a lengthy diatribe on our current state of affairs.  The five nuggets of knowledge that follow are perhaps the most poignant of his pontifications.

#5.  Kicking Things Off With A Bold Analogy

GRP’s insinuation here could easily be construed as a dig at the Deep State, who have reshaped public service into their own selfish image.

Trump, as a Citizen President, is certainly shoving Americans into a new, uncharted era in U.S. politics.  Our blindfold is both a figurative shield against the truth of the Deep State swamp dwellers and a burden on the previously nonpolitical President.

But, as with all things America, we are at our best while we are trying hardest.

#4:  Exposing How The Media Subconsciously Feeds You Their Own Narrative

The cable news networks and their social media presence are almost certainly to blame for this, with their constant and consistent conflict porn blaring in our general direction at all hours of the day and night.

To make matters worse, just the act of scrolling is addictive in its own way.

Are Facebook and other social media companies intentionally exploiting people’s psychological vulnerabilities to keep them addicted?

You bet, says Sean Parker, who made a fortune as an early Facebook investor and its first president. In an interview with Axios’ Mike Allen this week, Parker said that he has become something of a “conscientious objector” to social media. And he reflected with some regret on his own role in helping to mold the sort of company that Facebook would become.

“The thought process was all about, ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?’,” he said. “And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever, and that’s going to get you to contribute more content, and that’s going to get you more likes and comments. It’s a social validation feedback loop. … You’re exploiting a vulnerabilty in human psychology.

#3.  Putting Trump’s Adversity Into Context

While this is certainly an intriguing and colorful visualization, there is more than a little truth to the analogy as well.

This is where @GalacticRedPill begins to veer into the juicy world of QAnon and the alleged “real” reason for Robert Mueller’s time in Washington D.C.

#2.  Here Comes The Real Point

And while Donald Trump is steadily working to avoid a complete collapse of political order in our nation, he is still winning at nearly everything he attempts.

The lists of accomplishments that this Citizen President has achieved in just over a year is unfathomable, with just some of the highlights being the end of the Iran nuclear deal, the denuclearization of the DPRK, and the end of the sixty-plus year Korean War.

#1.  A Message For The Future

The point here is that Americans are living in a golden age of U.S. influence on the world, and the mainstream media is attempting to drown us in content to belittle this fact.

We must all step outside of the sphere of media malfeasance from time to time, in order to fully appreciate the gift that our nation has been given in Donald Trump.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
