Yellow journalism is making a huge comeback via social media. One could argue most of the recent online articles, snippets, comments and hearsay reports about the Supreme Court nominee, now Justice Brett Kavanaugh, without a shred of credible proof, are accurately in that category. "Yellow journalism and the Yellow press" are originally American terms from the newspaper wars in the late 1800s, which many historians believe pushed the USA and Spain into a war in 1898.
Yes, there has been "fake news" ever since there has been news in human history. This is unfortunately part of our culture from the childhood games of what used to be called "telephone" to gossip, "she said, he said" and vice versa, to malicious rumors, deliberate smears, misleading or out of context quotes, psyops and outright lies to manipulate others views about a situation, a nation, a people or a person. The poison darts of lies directly targeting a human being are no less deadly to their reputation, their morale and credibility than is a bullet to the heart fatal to their physical life. Even if the allegations, accusations, slander and character assassination strategies do not physically kill - a she/he or they are felled in the eyes of a dumbed down and gullible public who will not take the time to discern facts from defaming fiction.
All it takes are public allegations, accusations and the person is "smeared" , a doubt created, a metaphorical 'revolting smell' is spread which will persist even after the facts uncover the lies, or dispute the alleged actions, words or inactions and show the people or person to be "cleared" of wrong doing. The damage has been done to that institution, group or person and the negative effects will linger. He/She will be discredited and have to continually prove themselves, perhaps for the rest of their life. As one philosopher pointed out about human nature, "People will most often question all the good things they hear about you but believe all the negative things without a second thought." Physically assassinating someone kills them once and leaves it possible for the assassin to be discovered, but assassinating character has far less risk for the assassin(s). It leaves them free to attack over and over again. Often with impunity. Witness what has just happened in the US nomination process for the highest court in the land, the Supreme Court. This is a terrifying precedent in my opinion.
There are many motives for those perpetrating the moral crime of character assassination. Power, jealousy, censorship, competition, lack of character on the part of the assassin; are some of the main drivers. The collateral damage of a "successful campaign" of allegations, insinuations and character assassination are immediate and then follow a domino effect making it especially lethal to an organization or individual's professional and personal endeavors. The use of the world wide web and international visibility to carry out the assassination compounds the damage and the follow on consequences for the victim.
Anyone associating closely with the victim may be sprayed with the slime of slander. Certainly family members may be emotionally harmed and possibly alienated completely from the one assassinated. Maybe they don't even think to ask the victim about the truth of the accusations because they are so afraid or mortified it will affect them and their life. Colleagues may disassociate because they do not want a hint of connection to someone who is "tainted" with scandal. Privacy will become a past privilege once accusations are made in the community, national or global arena. Amateur sleuths, psychologists, counselors, pastors, politicians, journalists will emerge believing they have a right to comment and condemn without even knowing the victim or their family or their actual history. Only God and the victim will ever really know the truth.
Media vultures will circle waiting for their prey and those with nothing better to do will eagerly latch on and hungrily lust for "dirt" on the victim and her/his family and associates. This kind of spectacle makes people of small minds and hearts and minuscule conscience feel inflated, and they will cackle with a sick sort of delight in the suffering of others. This is an exhibit of demonic blood lust. The "blood" is the hurt inflicted, the rips and tears into the fabric of the human being by the perpetrators of the assassination, and others who are complicit. These kinds of people are cruel, narcissistic, sociopaths and pervasive in human society. Be alert to their tactics. I know them all too well from my own first hand experience as a targeted individual.
Death by a thousand cuts may be metaphorical as well as physical when it comes to character assassination. The worst cuts come from those closest to the victim. These types of betrayals can be the most painful. The wounds inflicted may never fully heal. Fortunately for Brett Kavanaugh, his living family members sat and stood by him, his parents, his wife and children, his close colleagues and the man who put forward his nomination. This must have given him some shield and balance to the slings and arrows thrown against him in the very public forum. Let us hope so, especially for the sake of his young daughters.
As a woman who is roughly in the same generation as the main accuser of Brett Kavanaugh, Christine Blasey Ford, I am appalled at the circus she was a willing participant in for her own publicity and financial gain and that of her family, at the terrible cost to Brett Kavanaugh and his family, as well as to the entire committee hearing process. The fact that she was born into a CIA family and used her background to her advantage, trained in psychology not to re-tune her possible traumas but to use her acquired skills to train others as "CIA interns" in psychological manipulation techniques, does not speak well of her own character. Christine Blasey Ford did research and wrote academic papers discussing the results of utilizing tools of "inception", planting false triggers and memories, hypnosis and masking, making her accusations and actions doubly despicable and her "acting performance" before the press and the judicial committee, all the more revolting. She was incredible alright - as in the root definition of the word-not credible, not believable, without integrity. realityanddenial.wordpress.com/2018/10/05/kavanaugh-accuser-christine-blasey-ford-ran-mass-hypnotic-inductions-of-psychiatric-subjects-as-part-of-mind-control-research-funded-by-foundation-linked-to-computational-ps/
The other woman, Julie Swetnick has ties to the Blasey family through Christine's father, Ralph Blasey-CIA paymaster. Julie Swetnick has used her intelligence and attractiveness as a contractor for many corporations including: Leidos/Lockheed, Webtrends, Deloitte, and as a contractor for the US Department of State, US Department of Justice, Homeland Security, Border and Customs Patrol, the IRS, Department of General Services and others. She has listed more security clearances than most of the US Senators and those department heads of the agencies listed above. Very curious. In addition take a look at all the court cases, scandals she was involved in with employers. Her academic credentials are less than most in the IT field. Why was she given these responsibilities and clearances? What is Julie Swetnick gaining financially from testifying? Will she split the "go fund me" proceeds of one million dollars with Christine Blasey Ford? Her TV interview was a disaster for her and her legal team. Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, is akin to ambulance chasers in terms of his professional credibility. They are two of a kind really and both will be dropped by those that pushed them forward in this diabolical charade. Maybe they are looking for an advance and a lucrative book and speaking tour deal?!
Both these women have wittingly or unwittingly been assets for others to push back women's progress in prosecuting actual acts of sexual violence, assault and rape. Those real victims of rape, forced sexual acts, violence, physical and sexual abuse may now not be believed without needing to produce even more corroborating evidence than before, due to these false accusations and the pop culture of the juvenile, narcissistic "Me, too" meme bandwagon. Women, girls, boys and men who have been the victims/survivors of sexual violence, rape, trafficking and abuse statistically do not even report these crimes, much less jump up and down publicly proclaiming their victimization on an international social media forum, "Yes, me, too!". Most of the time they hide their violations for the rest of their lives and in some countries they would be prosecuted themselves for "allowing" rape to happen. Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Pakistan as cases in point.
The mental and physiological torture that can be inflicted by deliberate character assassination cannot be overstated. Being accused of "raping", being a "sexual predator", a "liar" and "a drunk" in front of your young children-when it is completely untrue and unproven, when it is an intentional lie designed to shred an individual and bring them tumbling down-is a heinous type of psychic torture for the whole family involved. I am including both an image by the Serbian artist Arpad Slancik, and the music and Latin/English lyrics by Carl Orff, "O Fortuna". The illustration for this music on the youtube link below is emblematic of the agony fate can inflict on a human being. The anguish is even greater for those who once knew life as more than mere survival-who experienced the freedoms, nobility, joys and sense of true accomplishment and authority that they earned, only to have these stripped away unjustly, maliciously-then to have to endure the rest of their life in a shadow of what was and could have been. Even the way someone dies or is killed and their accomplishments and character may be "assassinated" along with their physical body. www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5b7tgkdFH0
In many cases where a "hit" is ordered, a fabricated reason or method is released to the press either implying or directly accusing the person as being "to blame" for their own death. A case in point with a number of "overdoses" that were actual homicides, or in the case of one of my former team mates and close friends, the disinformation was spread to news outlets within an hour of her death. They reported her as "proselytizing" Christianity in a Muslim country. This could not be further from the truth, but it made it appear as if she were going against the law and being culturally disrespectful so "she got what she deserved" by being fatally shot by an imam. A campaign may be waged against someone which may continue after their death in an effort to "make them wrong" or "erase them" from history, from memory. Think back to stories circulated about John Fitzgerald and Robert Kennedy and the numerous sexual "conquests" they were reported to have (after their assassinations) as the lynchpin for attention to be centered on their personal flaws rather than their many achievements as well as their efforts to expose and prosecute corruption in their relatively short lives.
Making a popular film and in that film denigrating an actual person or casting someone who is decidedly unattractive to portray that real life human being, then writing a script which presents a courageous or unique individual as someone to be despised, dismissed and/or shunned-for example. This is another method of character assassination. "Creative license" to depict a person as being disheveled, with slurred speech, hinting that they may have been drinking alcohol or taking illegal drugs, mentally ill or participating in illicit sex-can leave a more lasting impression to resonate for generations to come. A film will fabricate a "frame" of that person as much less than who they really were (or for that matter vice versa). One recent case in point is the film, "Everest" and the caricature characterization of a real mountain guide, Scott Fisher, as man who was not remotely recognizable by those who knew him, worked with him and loved him. He was played by a famous actor who adeptly created a character who was "a hippy" ditzy, jealous, flirtatious, unprofessional, a bit crazy and a seemingly sloppy man. All this just for 'entertainment' effect, yet the character on the large screen is what most people will remember. Those who knew him are chagrined by that 'smear' portrayal of Scott Fisher. Scott was serious about his work, his commitment, his skills, his professionalism, attention to detail, to safety. His generosity, his care for those he was responsible for, and his love of his family (which was never even mentioned in the film) were legendary. But these important attributes were never presented. Once deceptive darts (as images) are launched into the public space and minds eye, it is very difficult to take them back, or for people to have their viewpoints changed, their mental picture of a person re formed.
There is a growing segment of the population, especially in the west, who are now groomed to bleatingly follow the "main stream narrative" contrived by large, corporate media. These people can become like deranged, zombie crowds running after, spitting, kicking and hurling insults at people that they don't even know or have not done any background research on themselves. If these people are pointed (and often paid) to go after someone-they blindly obey and do so in front of cameras. Sheeple are part of engineered character assassinations and herd bullying tactics.
They also serve as distractions from more significant and perhaps deeply disturbing events such as attempted coups. We saw this phenomenon in action at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. this past week.
If you believe in Divine Justice and/or the Akashic records-eventually all will be revealed if not in this life, then in the hereafter. I pray in this case, we do not have to wait so long for the real story of the Kavanaugh attacks, the character assassins and the attempted coup conspirators against a duly elected president of the United States, to be brought to light. For many reasons I feel the angels wept for America this week.
Persevere. While you are alive there is hope. There is still opportunity for truth to triumph and for justice to be served.
From the west coast of America-best to you and yours,
