The Manchurian Candidate Part II: "Going out on the Limb"

On my last post, Obama "The Manchurian Candidate" I raised a question concerning my analytical comparison to Obama the candidate for the 2008 presidency with the movie "The Manchurian Candidate", the older version. Here in my final assessment and after careful observation, I will be taking an enormous step towards uncertainty, yes, I'm "Going out on the limb". I’m going all-out with an unprecedented and extremely daring declaration. I'm actually going to place the Queen of Diamonds around the neck of the American media, oh yes, they are the culprits here. The brainwashed, ignorant followers who actually sit down in front of a TV screen and glue their eyes to CNN for more than 5 minutes and/or surf the web and spend the same amount of time on all the far-left and ultra liberal websites on the Internet, they are the victums. Don’t worry, Mr. Obama will enter the picture later on, but first let me proceed to explain to the readers here or maybe I should have phrased it this way, let me furnish your minds with my personal observations concerning the American media. I would like to arm you with an invisible sort of gadget, one that you can use to defend yourself from all their rhetoric. Well, let me put it in different terms, I will arm you with a sort of attitude per say, so you could be “totally prepared”. A defense mechanism you might say, so you could see clearly and beyond the barrage of obstacles that will be launched at you when you decide to click on the control to your TV or the mouse that connects you to the virtual world. Once you understand and realize how these conniving media outlets work, then you will be totally safe from them all, psychologically speaking of course.

First of all, you must understand and realize that for a news agency or any media outlet to grab and dominate an audience they first need to identify their weaknesses and believe me, there are many here in America. I will use CNN as my prime example since they are the most manipulative of them all. In the fast-pace world we live in, we need the news now and I mean right now, so that’s the first step they took advantage of. They spent a lot of their money in having beat reporters throughout the United States. Secondly, they concentrated on easier ways for the viewer to access misinformation, so they made deals with large companies, private and state controlled, “Lets’s make a deal”, they said. So now CNN can be seen almost anywhere and all day long, very ingenious. This is why wherever you turn your head you can view CNN, in your local banks while you are waiting on line, in airports, right above the carousels while you wait for your luggage. You can view CNN practically anywhere, in bars, hotel lounges, motor vehicle agencies, the internet and a number of other locations I cannot recall at this precise moment. Finally and now that they have hypnotized the viewers, they can proceed to program their minds and turn them into a one-sided negative paranoid disaster. So be aware of this and use alternative news networks to obtain a second and third opinion, remember there are three sides to any story, not two. There is the factual truth, the absolute lie and the twisted speculative, rumor driven diversion of the truth, accompanied by he said, she said mumble jumbled non-represented statements. This is the media’s tactic, to totally dominate and alter your train of thought. You see, if you let it happen to you and you “drink the cool aid”, as the saying goes, then you will be psychologically doomed, you will be a head case now. The tall-tale proof that will convince you have been victimized, that your mind has been raped of any real self expression, is when you turn your TV and/or your computer off. If you are clueless and have no conclusive closure to what you have seen for the past hour or so. If you are more confused now then when you began to watch the so-called “primaries” and can’t decide to make up your mind at all, then your mind has been literally kidnapped, my friend. Basically, you never get the final result, they just confuse you more and in turn, have you coming back for more, it’s not real news reporting, it’s an ongoing never-ending saga but you know that, I hope?

Now I will bring back Mr. Obama into the picture as I promised. It seems that I have reverted back to Barack, he is officially the ‘The Manchurian Candidate”, well he is now but was not all the while. You see, a small twist I forgot to mention, it was Hillary Clinton in the very beginning, she was the Manchurian Candidate but this lasted only for the first few months, that’s until Obama came on strong and took over the race. But you see the American media, well let’s use CNN again as our model for discussion. When CNN started to realize by the results of, let’s say the “Tenth” debate, they began to lean over to Obama’s camp, he became their vehicle now for total control of voters, he will lead them to their ultimate goal and that is to have a Democrat in office in 2008 but most importantly, one they can totally control. How did they see and recognize it was time to change over and support Obama? Well you see, they have polls, it’s a sort of process, they pose a question to the public, they give them a choice, Obama or Hillary. Although I was never contacted by a national poll agency, this is how it works. They make random phone calls to the American public. From gathering information on the internet there are basically four so-called reliable and ongoing polls that are taken, you have Rasmussen, Gallup, Research 2000 , SurveyUSA. But there are more, it is rather confusing, here, checkout this Website and you will understand exactly where I’m coming from. After researching the poll system, I have come to the conclusion that polls “do not” really make anyone more secure and more assured of who is really winning any race. Also, I have come to the conclusion that this is very beneficial for CNN, now they can “control” the whole process. They have their own predictions, their own projections, yes, their own “Manchurian Candidate” and like I explained on part one, Obama is the perfect choice, he has the credentials. He’s the heartless, non-compassionate, self adorned character; he is the prime candidate for the American media to fully control. My advice to everyone reading this article is, go out and vote, wait until all the votes come in and read the results the next day. This way you will skip all the useless reporting. But now you say, how am I going to learn about all the candidates? Be objective, investigate all you can, look at all the pros, and cons concerning all the candidates, absorb it all and remember to use my “Three Points of View” analogy. So as you see I have gone full circle and have ended back to my original point of view. It’s Obama, he’s “The Manchurian Candidate”, I’m totally sure now but again, this is just my opinion, what’s yours??

I totally agree about MSM and the shameless way we are manipulated by those who should be informing us. I blame academia too. A few years back when my niece was studying journalism at Oberlin College I asked why she wanted to be a journalist. "To influence public opinion," she answered. I countered that the journalist's job was to provide us with reliable facts that would allow us to make up our own minds, not to "persuade" us to think any one way. But I know this isn't the current approach to teaching journalism (or anything else, for that matter), so what can one expect from these graduates and their bosses?

Agustin Blazquez sent me this message concerning this article, so I could post it for him, please read it:
"For decades I have realized that the MSM and academia have been manipulating, misinforming and misleading the American public. They have rendered a disservice to the American people and this nation. That's the reason why so many Americans are falling for a dangerous candidate like Barack Obama."

Gayle Miller said...

There are, however, ways to defeat this brainwashing, mind control agenda. For example, whenever a pollster calls me (I'm registered as an Independent and therefore am endlessly pestered.) I can usually tell by question 2 or 3 for whom he is working. So, for example, if it's clear to me that this poll is being conducted on behalf of Senator Obama, then I make sure to slant ALL of my answers to give the impression that I worship the ground upon which Obama walks, when nothing could be further from the truth. I like skewing their numbers and suggest is as a pleasant bit of harmful (to the Left) fun for us.

In the meantime, perhaps those people who have experienced what it is like to live in a nation with a government controlled press needs to start communicating to all who are able and willing to listen, just how destructive lack of freedom of the press can really be, and how important it is that our news organizations be unbiased and balanced.

And you bet Senator Bambi is "The Manchurian Candidate" - he scares the socks off of me!

Jose Reyes said...

Yes he is Gayle and let me tell you, no poll agency has ever called me and has called anybody I know or asked randomly. But getting back to the media, specifically CNN, they are way out of line , it is a monopoly now! They have gone to the point , if you watch there flashy introduction now with the primaries, they state, "We ARE POLITICS", come on!! And tell me the truth, don't you feel like ripping off Wolfe Blitzer's beard when he's on the "situation room" creating rumors, all the innuendos and so on. We see what's going on but there are many brainwashed people who do not see this. CNN is way out of hand and I will continue writing about there manipulating tactics until something is done. Although my website is already an unbearable workload, I'm actually thinking of creating a blog just for this purpose. If by any chance Obama gets elected, they will then control the decision making process of the American people. Believe me, they will not stop until they conquer the minds of everyone.

Great essay Mr. Reyes, let us not forget that our parents' generation was also mislead, by their own selves and the U.S. media. My father had many hobbies, some of them he liked more than others and among the former, was ham radio, back in 1956 he accidentally came across Radio Rebelde, the clandestine radio station that the Kasstro revolutionarios used to spread their insurrectional messages, dad tells me that he heard Fidel for less than five minutes, he immediately became aware that the so called revolutionaries, were indeed fond of Marxist and Leninist doctrines, he spoke to his father about this issue and his fear of a totalitarian police state, he recommended that the family business should proceed to open a subsidiary in Caracas, Venezuela and that the necessary capital should be deposited in a bank in the Cayman Islands, my grandfather replied to my dad, "Son, if the remote plausibility of what you fear comes to pass, I am certain that the U.S.A. would immediately proceed to crush them as if they are roaches, remember the accords of Yalta, Teheran and Potsdam, the Americas are U.S. zone of influence, do not worry, we will be fine."

Blind faith in the U.S.A., amongst many other factors, was Cuba's and Cubans' death sentence, there are fellow Cubans that to this day, still expect that the good old U.S.A., that paternalistic savior is going to come to the rescue of our nation and our people. Need I say more? OK, How about the "Cubanos con Obama"? they have swallowed this fellow's rhetoric and platitudes, hook, line and sinker, they should know better.

P.S. Just a tip, punto y aparte.

Jose Reyes said...

Excellent commentary Angel and I understand your point. I don't feel though, that the US has abandoned us in any way. They accepted us and gave us a second chance to renew our lives. We owe it all to the government of the United States, without their acceptance we will not be free now. The media is the culprit here, they are to blame, they've had a fascination with Castro right from the very beginning, that's not our fault. Now we have another break and that is the Internet, another way to expose the Castro regime but now it is a global audience and it is working!
As for Obama and Cuban-Americans changing their viewpoint, I disagree very much. I'm asking you Angel please, stop watching the phony propaganda MSM, I'm sure you found out through them. I bet if you go around Miami and ask all the Cuban-Americans there, what they feel about Obama, you will realize the complete opposite.

Angel Garzón said...

The U.S. betrayed us more than once since 1955, look up the true historical records and accounts of the many participants, this is not a matter of opinion or hear-say, it is a fact, ugly facts, but nevertheless, facts.

José, I do not watch the MSM, I cannot stand their (here you're correct) propaganda, I watch only Fox News and I do not believe everything they say either, Fox has a xenophobe audience that has to be served a daily dose of what they want to hear, lest the ratings and thereby the profits, would decline. I existed in the Kasstro created hell hole long enough to be able to smell the commie shite from one hundred miles away The cubanos con Obama may be not as numerous as those of us who know that he is a neo-communist, but the fact that there are some Cubans in the U.S.A. who have the audacity to display any kind of support for this fellow is sickening, heck, Jay Martinez of Magazine Cubano fame supports Obama, it is pure myopia.

Jose Reyes said...

Ok, ok Angel, I'm on your side hermano, we are together on this, but I disagree with your train of thought. Let me get this out first before I continue. Since 1955? Mention to me some examples from 1955 to 1959, because in 1959 when Fidel marched into Havana the people were cheering, that's the Americans fault? When Fidel came to New York City afterwards, the Cubans here were cheering also, that's America's fault? The truth of the matter is that we all got fooled. Do you know, if Fidel would have stepped down like he said, in a year and a half after he took over and let a democratic election occur in Cuba, he would have been a hero. But of course everyone knew he was a Commie, he was involved already in Colombia in 1948 many other communist movements. Batista's dictatorship is the prime reason why he triumphed. The United States supported Batista , that was wrong and I agree with you there, ok. And I know Batista was there for quite a while but Cuba prospered also. There you have some kind of point but also America did not get involved politically and tell Batista what to do, but they supported him with private business. But then again, the United States did not support Castro and still has not, so they did the right thing there, you must agree there. Basically Angel, everybody Screwed up and the Cuban people got screwed the most. I oppose dictatorships and, of course, communism, they practically are the same thing. They are totalitarian governments and are the systems that have been in place in Cuba since 1939, if I'm not mistaken.
There is another issue here and it has to do with who is in power i the U.S.A. When Eisenhower was president we had support, example, "The Bay of Pigs" but when Kennedy was there we lost support. Fidel, the snake got away. Then you had other important factors, the "Missile Crises",the Russians and the cold war, Fidel escaped harm again. You had Vietnam, Segregation, you had Carter, Clinton, Nixon and Watergate. This country of ours, America, had much to worry about and we had leaders who gave Fidel a free pass also. And behind all this, you had the New York Times and now the MSM with CNN leading the way.
Our parents realized immediately and got us out right away. But there were many who didn't want to leave and many, many more who gave Fidel a chance and had to escape afterwords or did 20 year jail terms and there are many in jail right now (Political Prisoners).

What does the United States have to do with that? In this country we have freedom of press but unfortunately the commies can use it also, they are the culprits. The problem is that the people in America do not feel threatened by communism, well, you know it and so do I. It is right on our doorstep right now, Obama "The Manchurian Candidate" and CNN pulling the strings.

Angel, I hope you are not offended by my reaction, although it was rather confusing. You see, because of this confusion, Fidel is still there and of course again, the MSM which aids it. We are here in America and we know where we stand. Looking back doesn't resolve anything, what's done is done! When Cuba is free again and that will be very soon, then justice will be done. The innocent people in Cuba will make sure of that, they know exactly who is who there. I'm looking ahead and that is why I created my website in the first place. The Cuban-Americans in this country must work "together" even more and work together for the future of Cuba so it will not happen again. Thank god for the Internet, we are getting the message out and that is, what is happening in Cuba right now! The last 49 years is what has led us to the situation, that is, right now! It's all intertwined, it comes with the territory, it's part of the package.
Unfortunately, we also have to divert our attention towards "our" nation now, America, with this Obama and the MSM, the New York Times and specifically with CNN, who by the way has a new logo now, it states "CNN IS Politics".

Tomás Estrada-Palma said...

The U.S. Government uses Cuban exiles for their purposes and lots of others too. I don't trust liars who violate their oath of office and pity those who don't realize this fact.

USpace said...

So Tomas, I guess that must mean the Cuban Exiles are lying about the wretched conditions in Cuba. Yeah right!

People are hypnotized with Obamamania and his Obammunism. Good fodder for Obama posters here. Posters about him reflect this puppy dogs, doves and rainbows feeling. The Obama Utopia.

If Obama can stay pretty clean, do some good things as Senator, and then become Governor of IL, he could be unstoppable in 2012 or 2016. Scary stuff.

I would dearly love to see a Jewish, African-American woman as POTUS. It's not race or gender that makes it for me though. It's political beliefs that matter, and socialism is bad for everybody, (accept those high in government or high-level academia) especially poor people, of all races. Obama is a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist, no thanks.

His 'Change', 'Hope' and 'Progress' mantras are actually somewhat self-mocking. Making your own Obama posters is totally addicting.
I laughed so hard I almost had a breakdown. LOL!

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
befriend a bomber

pushing for change at all costs
sacrifices must be made

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
only feel and hope

please force people to change
change can only be good

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. If there is no freedom of speech, then there can be no real freedom.
Make Some Obama Posters NOW!
Che Makes Money for Capitalists
Help Halt Terrorism Now!

very good article and the unvarnished truth. When you watch CNN and a newscasters said: "The dictator of Paraguay Alfredo Stroessner died today at the age of 90 years old", and then 5 minutes later they say: "Cuban President Fidel Castro has not been seen in public for over a year" you know you are being manipulated just like you said. We have seen that a few months ago. Stroessner a dictator and Castro was called a President.
You don't have to go very far to see the Obama supporters among the Cuban community right there in Miami. Just visit the Miami and Beyond blog and you will find out for yourself. Unabashed Obamamania while the guy has for supporters and advisers left wing radicals from the 1960's such as the Weathermen who supported Castro and traveled to Cuba to get training in bombings and guerilla warfare. But the MSM has decided no to talk about this or ignores it. Only Fox news had a few broadcast where this fact was revealed. For any Cuban to support Obama is an abomination because even his campaign volunteers in Houston were displayng pictures of Che Guevara and the Cuban flag. God help us if this guy gets elected.
