Distrust Of Government Undermines Obama's Support.


"In Chicago, there was an old tradition of throwing a brick through your own campaign office window, and then calling a press conference to say that you've been attacked," Axelrod says.

The above article is from 2010.

But I thought it was relevant, especially in our current "political" climate.

In it, David Axelrod, one of Obama's chief strategists talks about how distrust of the government can undermine support.

The guy has a real gift for pointing out the obvious... In other news, the sky is blue.

Moving on, he begins to talk about Republicans and some of the ways in which they play politics.

But while doing so, he unwittingly makes the statement about false flag attacks or hoaxes.

Question is, was he telling us something based in reality, that hoaxes and FF attacks are very real. Or was he using hyperbole to make a point?

My guess: he was being absolutely truthful. This was not some made up example.

Which leads us to the question, just how far are politicians and governments willing to go in order to play the victim role or to advance an agenda?

What are you suggesting? Has anyone had a brick thrown lately?

Metaphorically, yes.

Yesterday's bricks are today's "pipe bombs" and mass shootings.

Taking it up a notch.

Where do you think fire sale came from?

My father in law (from Chicago) used to tell us stories about stores setting their goods on fire and selling things out the back at a "discount".. Furniture places still do a form of it through multiple bankruptcies and renaming their stores.

Chicago has always been crooked and now the rest of the country is catching on.

Bullets count ?


At least four shots were fired into a Republican campaign satellite office in Volusia County, Fla. on Sunday, police announced after a campaign volunteer reported the shooting Monday morning

Just as effective as a brick, but of course in Chicago, one needs all your ammo to take out others or for self defense

It's almost as if both national parties are seasoned pro's at putting on the biggest, dumbest shows.

Far enough to fake bombs.

After throwing out fake rape allegations to get what they want.

After accusing Russia of stealing an election they stole from someone else.

Short answer pretty effing far.
