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

Published

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.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
