America’s humiliations just keep piling up

Billionaires, Grifters, are vehicles for ratings Trump learned that years ago when doing his TV show. Attention matters and refusing it is the death of corporate media. Like Barnum like Madhoff Trump is still a master of the art of attention control.

A great start will be the mainstream media refusing to give Trump platforms such as last Wednesday’s CNN event. Of course, this is a forlorn hope, as the soaring ratings totally vindicated CNN’s decision.

The banner is still aloft over what used to be the home of the brave. It will recover its starry spangle when Trump and his White supremacist movement of anger, hatred and malice are gone forever.

Multiple events in the USA this month have dismayed, disturbed and disgusted the watching world, as Alan Austin reports.

The government is falling apart… let’s hope the voters are paying attention – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Why is it people like Trump can gain voters’ attention but those on the left don’t seem to be able to do the same as Whitlam and Hawke once did? Their enthusiasm was contagious. I dare say it’s to do with the a shift in the media more so than the politicians. Bill Shorten and Albanese have both been regarded as as inspiring speakers in the ALP. Plibersek has a great media presence next to them Morrison Frydenberg look incompetent. But the media guarantees that, that in fact, won’t happen.

My thought for the day We live in a time where horrible things are being perpetrated on us. The shame is that we have normalised them and adjusted accordingly. (John Lord)

Donald Trump meets with Kenosha shooter Rittenhouse at Mar-A-Lago – World Socialist Web Site

Turning the USA upside down. Discombobulating a nation, the purpose being to fragment the nation mentally. To raise the intensity of emotion to diminish, no destroy any sense of rational objective analysis of proven sentient facts . Yes, thats simply the purpose of getting up close and personal with Rittenhouse and support him in the loudest of possible ways. he really couldn’t give a fuck about the kid he’s using as a tool.

Trump’s existence has been based on nondiscovery of any personal real from fake facts in order to blur and control the noise and consequently the narrative, and if that didn’t work just delay by throwing  everything into the mix like a stun grenade, relying on time, a  human sacrifice, or the 24/7 news cycle to do the rest. Grab the media space, the ratings, and the promise of profitand the media will be your dancing bears. Let your band of advisors like Steve Bannon et al do the rest.

Trump hasn’t changed he simply lost the Presidency for now.

On Wednesday, QAnon supporter and January 6 coup-plotter Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia introduced a bill to award a Congressional Gold Medal, the highest honor of the legislative branch of the US Congress, to Kyle Rittenhouse. Although the full text of Greene’s proposed legislation has yet to be drafted, an official summary states, “H.R.6070 – To award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle H. Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020.”

“When you have millions of public voices as we have today because of digital connectivity, then attention becomes the most valuable thing you can garner,” said Martin Gurri, a former CIA media analyst and author of “The Revolt of the Public.” “It’s even more important than money because, in the end, if you can keep getting attention, you’ll probably wind up not just with money but with power as well.”
