"I just had the idea hit me the other day, that something really big will happen within the next six months, and I don't know why."
Enter - To Walk Through
Train - To Teach Through Varying Sources, Experiences, and Methods
It follows that the use of the word here of "entertrainment" is what I am referring to as a different way to see and understand the use of marketing through the use of brainwashing through the use of the media as a medium to utilize the people's mind as their own staging ground by the "powers that be" to make free thinkers the target through a similar tactic that Senator Joseph McCarthy used called the "Red Scare."
I will teach you here a few ways to see through the hype into the "Man Behind The Curtain" in this sad "Wizard of Oz" effect that in constantly used to subjugate people in society to willingly give up their freedoms and control of their lives.

Hand it over officially to Obama...
Hillary you are OUTTA HERE!
How many of you here have watched the movie The Prestige
It is a masterpiece of complexities through the use of illusion and misdirection of two feuding magicians, Nikolai Tesla, and the World Stage at the turn of the century.
"The Pledge" - A Promise to so something so spectacular so as to change your disbelief into belief to do the impossible.
"The Turn" - Doing the impossible through slight if hand, illusion, and misdirection in order to confound the audience at hand.
"The Prestige" - Undoing what was done fulfilling "the Pledge" through the use of the "the Turn" yet again but in reverse to elude logic and fact to return reality to it's former self and or greater mystify the public by totally changing the former item to something totally different depending on the intent of the magician.
If you have read My post on a "Cingluar Nation" you understand the concept of utilizing marketing as a propaganda tool. What if I told you the rest of it? From what I understand of the naton of the United States of America is currently in "The Turn" in that we are being misdirected through slight of hand and illusion that we are under a constant state of threat by terrorists from all sides.
Wait a minute you say? Where was "The Pledge"? Were you not watching closely? "The Pledge" has been going since before I was born. "The Pledge" is the military in conjunction with the Government and the behind the scenes players along with movers and shakers to keep the nation and world afraid of "the threat" daily.
Reading books, watching TV, and going to the movies is generally a fun activity for the general populace, correct? If you read books, stare at the TV, or pay overpriced costs for ticket and popcorn at the theater you often see what is directly in front of your face. This is often a way to delve into some fascinating adventure and a way to relax for most of society, but what about those of us who do not actually see what it is literally right in front of their nose? Most here on ATS knowlingly have heard and used the expression "he/she can't see the firest for the trees" or some semblance or variation of that quaint saying.
What if though what you are reading, watching, and being entertrained by was more than a simple story with a melodramatic musical score and fanatical plot twist? Everyone has heard the terminology "programming", "brainwashing", and "marketing" but what if these words all led to the same thing? Loss of the free-thinking mind. It's as simple as that. While television companies use "programming" to select which hit show to "market" to you, you are being "brainwashed" into accepting an unseen leash and or collar through the slowly familiar de-sensitizing of acceptance through subjegation to the "Hive Mind" of the system similar to "The Matrix" where everyone is "independant" of each other through physical reality but has become "entrained" through "entertrainment" via allowing sumbols, colors, and sounds to wiz by through actions scenes without truly comprehending what you are really seeing.
This is of course a way to de-sensitize the person watching into any number of ways of mental numbness if the person sitting there is a simpleton or fool. De-sensitizing someone to anything is best eplained via usage of a great analogy of "The Frog"
The frog is some child's pet, and the child is cruel and unusual, in that he likes to torment the frog, doing odd things in order to make the frog react. One day, the child tries to see how the frog will react if he sticks it in a pot of boiling water. Typically, the frog freaks out, jumps in the kids face, makes the kid freak out thereby flipping the pot of boiling water all over the kitchen and himself, making mommy dearest get royally pissed off, thereby getting the small child grounded for a week after getting his butt beat.
The child is so pissed off, he becomes even more devious than usual, he intends now, to cook that frog, no matter what. So he turns the water to boil on the pot after getting off being grounded, to about 3/4 of the original temperature. This of course leads to the same exact action as before, but this time daddy beats the child's butt royally. I never did say this kid was the brightest in the world, did I?
So, the child, now being royally steamed, both literally and figuratively, schemes, plots, and uses his devious mind to come to the ultimate conclusion, that if you leave the water as room temperature, or tap water temperature, surely the frog will suspect nothing, because as we all here on ATS know, frogs like to swim. Well, this devious little child decides to act on this thought process, after his long punishment has ended.
He sticks the frog, in a cold pan of water, and to his pleasant surprise, the frog begins swimming around in the pot. I never said that the frog was smart either.
Anyway, so this devious child, he begins to incrimentally turn the temperature up from 0, to 5 degrees. Nothing happens, happy frog is still swimming. The devious child, of course is smiling at his unaware victim. He turns it up yet again, from 5 to 10 degrees, and voila, nothing. The kid is still smiling, but he wants to see this happen, and mom as well as dad could walk in at any moment. So, the child turns the heat up from 10 to 25 degrees.
Wow, the devious little problem child is thinking, this is neat. The frog is just swimming around, and suspects nothing. So, the kid, eases up the temperature like this, over an hours time frame, 5 degrees at a time now, because he is gettiing paranoid the frog will leap out, and does not want to spook him. The kid really wants this frog to suffer for the child's own stupidly invoked punishments.
By the time mom and dad walk in, junior, this simpleton of a child, has the water to a boil, the child is smiling devilishly, and the frog is belly up, boiled alive.
Needless to say, mom and dad are horrified, mom knocks dad's block off for "his son's" actions, and they end up fighting, and all up end up in family counseling.
As many players as possible line up such that they can whisper to their immediate neighbours but not hear any players farther away. The player at the beginning of the line thinks of a phrase, and whispers it as quietly as possible to her/his neighbour. The neighbour then passes on the message to the next player to the best of his or her ability. The passing continues in this fashion until it reaches the player at the end of the line, who calls out the message he or she received.

This isn't musicvideoblog. No one wants to read through all of that and watch those videos that aren't even relevant to Hillary's statements. This is the first and only time I've posted on ATS, but damn. She might be done for over those comments but seriously dude if you want to share your favorite songs with people make a myspace page. I'm here to read up on conspiracies, aliens and bigfoot.
"The Pledge" - 1930's - The state of flux the world was in from "The Great Depression" of the U.S. and the end of "Prohibition". Hitler's being placed into power after the promises of a scapegoat being the Jews, Gypsies, and foreigners. FDR promising to keep the U.S. out of a then pending and building second World War. Stalin, Hitler, and Hirohito signed a "non-aggression pact"
"The Pledge" - 1940's - Over half of Europe had fallen to Hitler's blitzgrieg of his soldiers, tanks, and "master-race." FDR built up arms, weapons, ship building capabilities in order to "assist" Europe, which can be easily shifted mid-stream one FDR strategically cut off Hirohito's supply line to Southeast Asia which lead to Pearl Harbor, and American's being the victim to an aggressor nation. Between the three Axis Powers, FDR knew Hirohito's Asian pride and "loss of face" would call for immediate action and retaliation. Hirohito fell for the trap, hook, line, and sinker.
"The Pledge" - 1950's - America having assisted Europe through sending men, weapons, and supplies made a killing financially through many ways from payment, to the dividing of Europe to gain permanent footholds like the Berlin Base, gaining scientific knowledge by the use of "Operation Paperclip" to get the Russian and German rocket scientists into America. Let's not forget the O.S.S., or Office of Strategic Services and the Nuclear Arms race with Russia.
"The Pledge" - 1960's - America losses its innocence and naivety that goverment is benevolent through events like the Vietnam War, Watergate, and JFK's assassination. The Watt's Riots, Flower Power through the Hippy Movement, Woodstock, the Beatles are all influencial along with the F.B.I. and domestic surveillance programs like "Cointelpro."
"The Pledge" - 1970's - Love Not War, the revolutionary counter-culture of America, the new intelligence agency of the C.I.A. gets a black eye with MK-ULTRA. The F.B.I., C.I.A., and N.S.A. battle for the almighty dollar that is funding. Afghanistan becomes a staging ground for surrogate war with Russia.
"The Pledge" - 1980's - Americans wake up and become responsible for the decadence of the last two decades. IBM vs MacIntosh, Reagan cuts off the C.I.A. at the kneecaps with making "high-profile" assassinations against "official policy."

I was thinking this same thing. In fact I have told everyone that if Obama gets elected he will get capped and it will be by government insiders and then blame it on a racist or something to cover it up. I feel the same will happen if my man Ron Paul gets in. Still voting for him though even though he will never get in. I think thats why its important Obama picks a good VP because I really do feel Obama is the next president.

As regards the Clinton comment....wow...what was she thinking?
