Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Katrina, New Orleans, Bush, Others And Shameless Serial Lying ...

Katrina, New Orleans, Bush, Others And Shameless Serial Lying ...

*

Anyone wanting to be told the truth about the Katrina-New Orleans catastrophe of a year ago should shut their ears to the never ending, erronious emissions of George Bush. It would be far better for them to talk to someone who was there at that terrible time. If fact, enquiring of almost anyone but Bush would be a better bet than listening to his load of ludicrous lies.

Since like so many modern day professional politicians -- who would by the way be more accurately described as merely, mass-marketing-men or perhaps better still, straightforward PR-pros -- G.W. Bush is a two-faced, forked-tongued twerp. And that's putting it mildly.

For he knows full well that by telling people what they want to hear, rather than those truths they're entitled to hear, it will invariably work wonders apropos his awful administration's many hidden agendas. Moreover, Mr Bush is smugly certain that invariably, mainstream media all but 'aids and abetts' him, along with any others involved as actual accomplices.

This particular President, perhaps more than most, is being briefed brilliantly (and always has been), by absolute masters in all matters propaganda. In a nutshell, 'el pretzeldente' is permanently practicing what his string pullers preach -- which is that 'perception is everything'.

Can everyone say Karl Rove?

Of course, this sort of despicable, duplicitous shit didn't just start with the 43rd presidency of the United States. Oh, no; not by a long chalk.

But ..... Richard believes that in this instance what would be better than This Old Brit blathering on about this any further, would be for you to take took a peek below. It's been clipped & pasted from a fellow blogger's site.


The methods had been used for years to promote the hard to sell policies of the government, but starting with Clinton and Blair a new use was found.

Polls were taken to find out what the voter desired most. These finding[s] were easily turned into speeches and in the cases of Clinton and Blair, won elections.

Blair took it one step farther and used it to set policy while Clinton simply did what he and his advisors thought was best after the election was won.
The above, incidentally, is borrowed from one of our own online buddies, Tom Rushing at 'Current Era'. And boy, is this fellow on fire today.

Witness something else Tom says.

One would think that the population would eventually catch on to this trick, and perhaps some have, but the public relations business is stronger and more centralized than ever.

Just a few short years ago, there were over 50 media stations broadcasting news to Americans. Now there are only five. This number could go lower soon, but at this point the company heads are all of one voice pounding out PR about whatever they want us to think we want.

The journalism schools in the U.S. are very few and most have switched over to public relations.

Journalists will soon go the way of the dinosaur if something does not change this horrible trend.
Yessir, Tom. Hammer, nail, head. We believe it. Too bloody true, we do.

So if it's an educational eye-opener you're after, and an especially enjoyable as well as enlightening one at that, slip straight across to
'Current Era' to read Tom's remarkable article in full.

Unless, of course, that someone is Rocky Vaccarella.

Richard I think you and your readers might be interested in going to Badtux's place to find out just exactly how corrupt the Bush administration's handling of the hurricane Katrina aftermath has been. Would you believe 99.5%? Don't believe it? Toddle along to Badtux to find out.

Thanks for those links guys. The Rocky story nicely backs up Tom's piece on governmental PR, in fact it's jst more proof.

I'll read Marks links next, but I fully expect to see something included there about one of Bush's brothers [Neill] finishing up pocketing a lot of Nola aid money. I'll look for more links of my own, later.

Last but not least, that is a fine piece of work, Tom. To coin a phrase "Good job."

Is Tom the "other" Tom (without the "V") who used to comment here?

Thanks Richard and everyone else here. If you guys set a date for the beginning of a peaceful revolution please let me know. It would seem that much of the military would lay down their arms fairly easily, and then we could pirate the main stream media, and go to paper ballets for voting and after a couple of elections, no more war or poverty and health care for all! What a dreamer I have become.

You can see as many real people from New Orleans, and hear them, regards what really happened [and what didn't happen] by watching Spike Lee’s new documentary: When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts.

No anonymous, I'm sad to say, we are not the same. I would've loved to wrote that succint article, but unfortunatelly I didn't.

Maybe if I grow up and finish my grammar school? (just kidding).

Anyway, I left a comment on Tom's blog site, where I brought attention to, the 'behind-the-curtain' collusion, how the Western Democracies are deteriorating along unsavoury, but familiar lines.

Thanks Anon, I thought untill now, that not even the dogs bark at me. :-)

Correction:
I see anon, on second reading, that I was under no suspicion to write that potent article.

To my defence, proper sentence analysis will 'come in', later on by higher grades.

Looks like, I was completely right on my assumption after all, stated on my last sentence above this message. :-(
