I hope it's evident when she craps her pants at her first POTUS news conference and subsequently has a seizure at the podium. then there will be crap smeared all over while EMTs try to take care of her limp old fat arse rolling around on the floor beside the podium. Well, one can dream, right. Rumor has it that she has suffered from incontinence and seizures ever since her accident where she fell down the stairs and had to take six months off for rehabilitation. edit on b000000312016-07-27T08:15:01-05:0008America/ChicagoWed, 27 Jul 2016 08:15:01 -0500800000016 by butcherguy because: (no reason given)
More lies from the [scratch]liberal[/scratch] propaganda machine.
However, I wouldn't be bothered if there wasn't already enough proof that they have been censoring it specifically to prop up their pocket politician.
"Modern means of communication—the power afforded by print, telephone, wireless and so forth, of rapidly putting through directive strategic or technical conceptions to a great number of cooperating centers, of getting quick replies and effective discussion—have opened up a new world of political processes.
Ideas and phrases can now be given an effectiveness greater than the effectiveness of any personality and stronger than any sectional interest. The common design can be documented and sustained against perversion and betrayal. It can be elaborated and developed steadily and widely without personal, local and sectional misunderstanding." - Edward Bernays from the book Propaganda (1928)
That's just flat out manipulation.
[The] American business community was also very impressed with the propaganda effort. They had a problem at that time. The country was becoming formally more democratic. A lot more people were able to vote and that sort of thing. The country was becoming wealthier and more people could participate and a lot of new immigrants were coming in, and so on.
So what do you do? It's going to be harder to run things as a private club. Therefore, obviously, you have to control what people think. There had been public relation specialists but there was never a public relations industry. There was a guy hired to make Rockefeller's image look prettier and that sort of thing. But this huge public relations industry, which is a U.S. invention and a monstrous industry, came out of the first World War. The leading figures were people in the Creel Commission. In fact, the main one, Edward Bernays, comes right out of the Creel Commission. He has a book that came out right afterwards called Propaganda. The term "propaganda," incidentally, did not have negative connotations in those days. It was during the second World War that the term became taboo because it was connected with Germany, and all those bad things. But in this period, the term propaganda just meant information or something like that. So he wrote a book called Propaganda around 1925, and it starts off by saying he is applying the lessons of the first World War. The propaganda system of the first World War and this commission that he was part of showed, he says, it is possible to "regiment the public mind every bit as much as an army regiments their bodies." These new techniques of regimentation of minds, he said, had to be used by the intelligent minorities in order to make sure that the slobs stay on the right course. We can do it now because we have these new techniques.
This is the main manual of the public relations industry. Bernays is kind of the guru. He was an authentic Roosevelt/Kennedy liberal. He also engineered the public relations effort behind the U.S.-backed coup which overthrew the democratic government of Guatemala. His major coup, the one that really propelled him into fame in the late 1920s, was getting women to smoke. Women didn't smoke in those days and he ran huge campaigns for Chesterfield. You know all the techniques—models and movie stars with cigarettes coming out of their mouths and that kind of thing. He got enormous praise for that. So he became a leading figure of the industry, and his book was the real manual.
—Noam Chomsky (From Chomsky's "What Makes Mainstream Media Mainstream": a talk at Z Media Institute, June 1997)
Under modern conditions of political advertising and manipulation, it has become possible to talk of the engineering of consent by an elite of experts and professional politicians. Consent that is thus engineered is difficult to distinguish in any fundamental way from the consent that supports modern totalitarian governments. Were the manipulated voter to become the normal voter, the government he supports could hardly be said to rest on his consent in any traditional sense of that word. - Edward Bernays
You're being manipulated. More evidence of blatant censorship.

The withholding of information, i.e., lying, is a horrible infraction against all of the Elements. It violates Free Will because it removes a possible Choice. It violates Chaos because misinformation creates stagnation of Progress. It violates Time because knowing that someone is a liar hurts Unity.

The End of Everything is nigh.
