"... President Donald Trump: ( 24:48 )
Some people in this administration, but fortunately not all have been beaten down and disparaged. They just disappeared. Nobody knows what happened to them. Why aren’t they active? Why aren’t they involved? There’s so much to be involved in. The corruption is so rampant. They just couldn’t take it anymore. They were threatened by Democrats with impeachment and horrible things were said about them. And they’re good people. Even recently, the head of the GSA was hounded and harassed as she reported, like she has never been before. What can I say? We caught Comey cold, we caught McCabe cold. We caught them all. We’re still waiting for a report from a man named Durham, who I have never spoken to, and I have never met. They can go after me before the election as much as they want, but unfortunately Mr. Durham didn’t want to go after these people, or have anything to do with going after them before the election. So who knows if he is ever going to even do a report. ..."
President Donald Trump: (24:48) -
"... Some people in this administration, but fortunately not all - have been beaten down and disparaged. They just disappeared.
Nobody knows what happened to them. Why aren’t they active? Why aren’t they involved? There’s so much to be involved in.
The corruption is so rampant. I know! I practice "corruption" at the highest levels. It was my idea - to hold the money - voted by our Congress - needed to help Ukraine. I understand "transactions". The USA "transacts" with the world - under my watch.
Even recently, the head of the GSA was hounded and harassed as she reported, like she has never been before. What can I say? We caught Comey cold, we caught McCabe cold. We caught them all. We’re still waiting for a report from a man named Durham, who I have never spoken to, and I have never met. AG Barr appointed Durham, a prosecutor investigating the origins of the 2016 Russia probe, as special counsel to ensure his investigation continues even after President-elect Joe Biden takes office. Durham was appointed under the same statute that governed Robert Mueller when he was made special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign and its contacts with Russia.
Moral Majority : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_Majority "... The origins of the Moral Majority can be traced to 1976 when Baptist minister Jerry Falwell Sr. embarked on a series of "I Love America" rallies across the country to raise awareness of social issues important to him. These rallies were an extension of Falwell's decision to go against the traditional Baptist principle of separating religion and politics, a change of heart Falwell says he had when he perceived what he described as the decay of the nation's morality. Through hosting these rallies, Falwell was able to gauge national support for a formal organization and also raise his profile as a leader. Having already been a part of a well-established network of ministers and ministries, within a few years Falwell was favorably positioned to launch the Moral Majority. ... The impetus for the Moral Majority was the struggle for control of an American conservative Christian advocacy group known as Christian Voice during 1978. Robert Grant, Christian Voice's acting President, said in a news conference that the religious right was a "sham... controlled by three Catholics and a Jew." Following this, Paul Weyrich, Terry Dolan, Richard Viguerie (the Catholics) and Howard Phillips (the Jew) left Christian Voice. ... During a 1979 meeting, they urged televangelist Jerry Falwell Sr. to found Moral Majority (a phrase coined by Weyrich). This was the period when the New Christian Right arose. Joining Falwell - in the "Moral Majority" - was Ed McAteer, who the same year, founded the Religious Roundtable in Memphis, Tennessee. ..."
"... Edward Eugene McAteer was born on July 29, 1926, in Memphis. He attended Memphis State University and later studied at Southern Law School, but did not receive a degree from either institution. He served in the Navy in World War II and in the mid-1940's was a Golden Gloves boxer. ... Unlike many conservative Christian leaders, Mr. McAteer was not a clergyman. For more than two decades, he worked as a sales manager for Colgate-Palmolive, in charge of the Southeast, before leaving the company in 1976 to devote himself to conservative causes full time. ... Mr. McAteer started the Religious Roundtable at a historical moment when conservative Christians were engaged in politics for the first time in decades. "If you go back to the 1950's, 60's and 70's, evangelical Christians were not very active in politics," Professor Green said. "Reforming this world didn't seem to appeal much to people whose whole goal was to get to the next world." ... But in the late 1970's, with the emergence of social issues, like abortion and gay rights, about which conservative Christians felt strongly, they began to coalesce as a political force. A watershed event was a gathering in Dallas, known as a National Affairs Briefing, that the Religious Roundtable sponsored in the summer of 1980. ... Addressing the gathering was Ronald Reagan, the Republican presidential nominee. He told the crowd, as Newsweek reported: "I know you can't endorse me. But I want you to know that I endorse you." ... After that, Professor Green said, "many people inside the movement and outside the movement recognized that something new was happening in American politics." ... Mr. McAteer is survived by his wife, the former Faye Carter; two sons, Edward Jr., of Murfreesboro, Tenn., and Timothy, of Bartlett, Tenn.; six grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren. ..."
And, the whole world learned the lesson - in WW2: Tell a "colossal" lie long enough - and eventually - some people will begin to believe it.
Example: " ... But it remained for the Jews, with their unqualified capacity for falsehood, and their fighting comrades, the Marxists, to impute responsibility for the downfall precisely to the man who alone had shown a superhuman will and energy in his effort to prevent the catastrophe which he had foreseen and to save the nation from that hour of complete overthrow and shame. By placing responsibility for the loss of the world war on the shoulders of Ludendorff they took away the weapon of moral right from the only adversary dangerous enough to be likely to succeed in bringing the betrayers of the Fatherland to Justice. ... that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the "big lie" than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters - but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. ... It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

[ Adolf Hitler ]
"... "ARBEITERZEITUNG" (an Austrian Newspaper) was also displayed (in the shops for sale).
... But hitherto, I could not bring myself to do more than glance at the wretched thing for a couple of minutes: for its whole tone was a sort of mental vitriol to me. ... despite the steadily mounting rage provoked by this ceaseless outpouring of falsehoods. [ "FAKE NEWS" ] ... I now found - that in the social democratic daily papers - I could study the inner character of this politico-philosophic system much better than in all their theoretical literature. ... In the literary effusions - which dealt with the theory of Social Democracy [above ] - there was a display of high-sounding phraseology about liberty and human dignity and beauty, all promulgated with an air of profound wisdom and serene prophetic assurance; a meticulously-woven glitter of words to dazzle and mislead the reader.
... On the other hand, the daily Press inculcated this new doctrine of human redemption in the most brutal fashion. ... These journalists were real virtuosos in the art of twisting facts and presenting them in a deceptive form. The theoretical literature was intended for the simpletons of the soi-disant intellectuals belonging to the middle and, naturally, the upper classes. The newspaper propaganda was intended for the masses. ... This probing into books and newspapers and studying the teachings of Social Democracy reawakened my love for my own people. And thus, what at first seemed an impassable chasm became the occasion of a closer affection. [ "MAGA" ]
... Having once understood the working of the colossal system for poisoning the popular mind, only a fool could blame the victims of it. During the years that followed I became more independent and, as I did so, I became better able to understand the inner cause of the success achieved by this Social Democratic gospel. [ do not question God ] ... I now realized the meaning and purpose of those brutal orders which prohibited the reading of all books and newspapers that were not 'red' and at the same time demanded that only the 'red' meetings should be attended. [ Human perception of a "message" through visual means VERSUS "aural" hearing means. Persuasion ]
In the clear light of brutal reality, I [ Adolph Hitler ]was able to see what must have been the inevitable consequences of that intolerant teaching. ... The PSYCHE of the broad masses is accessible only to what is strong and uncompromising. ... Like a woman - whose inner sensibilities are not so much under the sway of abstract reasoning - but, are always subject to the influence of a vague emotional longing -- for the strength that completes her being, and - who would rather bow to the strong man -- than dominate the weakling -- in like manner the masses of the people prefer the ruler to the suppliant - and, are filled with a stronger sense of mental security by a teaching -- that brooks no rival - than by a "teaching" which offers them a liberal choice. They [ the "masses" ] have very little idea of how to make such a choice -- and thus. they are prone to feel that they have been abandoned.
They feel very little shame at being terrorized intellectually -- and they are scarcely conscious of the fact that their freedom as human beings is impudently abused; and thus, they have not the slightest suspicion of the intrinsic fallacy of the whole doctrine. They [ the "masses" ] see only the ruthless force and brutality of its determined utterances, to which they always submit. ... IF SOCIAL DEMOCRACY SHOULD BE OPPOSED BY A MORE TRUTHFUL TEACHING; THEN EVEN, THOUGH THE STRUGGLE BE OF THE BITTEREST KIND, THIS "TRUTHFUL TEACHING" WILL FINALLY PREVAIL - PROVIDED IT BE ENFORCED WITH EQUAL RUTHLESSNESS. ...
... I recognized the infamy of that technique - whereby, the movement carried on a "campaign of mental terrorism against the bourgeoisie", who are neither morally nor spiritually equipped to withstand such attacks.
... The tactics of Social Democracy consisted in opening, at a given signal, a veritable drum-fire of lies and calumnies against the man whom they believed to be the most redoubtable of their adversaries, until the nerves of the latter gave way and they sacrificed the man who was attacked, simply in the hope of being allowed to live in peace. But the hope proved always to be a foolish one, for they were never left in peace.
The same tactics are repeated again and again, until fear of these mad dogs exercises, through suggestion, a paralyzing effect on their Victims.
Through its own experience Social Democracy learned the value of strength, and for that reason it attacks mostly those in whom it scents stuff of the more stalwart kind, which is indeed a very rare possession. On the other hand, it [Social Democracy ] praises every weakling among its adversaries, more or less cautiously, according to the measure of his mental qualities known or presumed. They have less fear of a man of genius who lacks willpower than of a vigorous character with mediocre intelligence - and, at the same time they highly commend those who are devoid of intelligence and will-power.
The Social Democrats know how to create the impression that they alone are the protectors of peace. In this way, acting very circumspectly - but never losing sight of their ultimate goal, they [ the "Social Democrats" ] conquer one position after another; At one time by methods of quiet intimidation and at another time by sheer daylight robbery, employing these latter tactics at those moments when public attention is turned towards other matters - from which it does not wish to be diverted - or, when the public considers an incident too trivial to create a scandal about it - and thus, provoke the anger of a malignant opponent.
These tactics are based on an accurate estimation of human frailties and must lead to success, with almost mathematical certainty, unless the other side also learns how to fight poison gas with poison gas.
The weaker natures must be told that here it is a case of to be or not to be.
I also came to understand [that] physical intimidation has its significance for the mass as well as for the individual. Here again the Socialists had calculated accurately on the psychological effect.
Intimidation in workshops and in factories, in assembly halls and at mass demonstrations, will always meet with success - as long as it does not have to encounter the same kind of terror in a stronger form.
Then, of course - the Party will raise a horrified outcry, yelling blue murder and appealing to the authority of the State, which they have just repudiated. In doing this, their aim - generally - is to add to the "general confusion"; so that they may have a better opportunity of reaching their own goal unobserved.
Their idea is: to find among the higher government officials - some bovine creature who, in the stupid hope [that] he may win the good graces of these awe-inspiring opponents - so that, "they" may remember him - in case of future eventualities, will help them now to "break" [harm] all those who may oppose this "world pest".
The impression which such successful tactics make on the minds of the broad masses, whether they be adherents or opponents, can be estimated - only by one who knows the popular mind, not from books - but from practical life. For the "successes" which are thus obtained - are taken - by the adherents of "Social Democracy" - as a "triumphant symbol" - of the righteousness of their own cause; On the other hand, the "beaten opponent" very often [ but not always ] loses faith in the effectiveness of any further resistance.
The more I understood "the methods of physical intimidation" that were employed, the more sympathy I had for the multitude that had succumbed to it.
I am thankful now, for the ordeal which I had to go through at that time; for it was the means of bringing me to think kindly again of my own people - inasmuch, as the experience enabled me - to distinguish between the false leaders and the victims who have been led astray.
