Deflect, Distract, Deceive: A Democratic Story

Updated on July 31, 2019

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

The person that is not the story, becomes the story; the story that is not the story, becomes the story

Which names/stories have you been hearing the most in the news, here of late?

Are you hearing the name Alex Acosta more or less than the name Jeffrey Epstein? How often are you hearing Bill Clinton's name, when and if you happen to catch a story about Jeffrey Epstein? When it comes to this particular news story, does the name Donald Trump come up, rather than the name Bill Clinton?

In other news, you are probably hearing the name Bob Mueller a lot, but when you do, do you ever hear the name Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, attached to it? When you hear the name William Barr, do you also hear Hillary's name mentioned?

Do you ever hear the term 'Illegal criminal alien' or only about children in cages and harmless people seeking safety within the borders of the United States of America, all while U.S. border and I.C.E. agents, are constantly thrown under the bus?

I could go on, but you get the idea.

When it comes to cracking down on those here illegally, those which have already been deemed criminal and are now being forced to leave, since they didn't leave when asked repeatedly...what are you hearing about instead?

With each new story which is developing or has already developed, pretty vividly...you'd be hard pressed not to know what was going on... the deflections of the media/Dem Party {one in the same} begin.

The person that is not the story, becomes the story; the story that is not the story, becomes the story...

but only if and only when...they have an (R) by their name or are more on the conservative side.

Only if and only when, they've worked under a Democratic Administration, but are now speaking out, making too much sense and siding with President Trump! These guys, in the latter category, are really scrutinized and raked over the coals.

Whenever the story will hurt someone other than President Donald Trump or those in his camp, the story must change!

Deflect, distract; deflect, deceive!

It happens over and over, time after time and they get away with it!

No one talks about it.

Those that try, have their words hidden away or explained away. Their voices aren't heard, their stories are reduced to subpar...you have to seek them out. I, personally, have knowledge of this bias, but I am not about to make this story, a story about me...

One of the latest things I've noticed, on FB, certain news sources are now given exclamation marks, maybe it's all on the up and up and perhaps liberal sources receive the mark as well...I wouldn't know.

The Exclamation Mark

On FB, with most every news story now, there is an exclamation mark, which you can click on in order to receive more information about that particular source.

The definition is provided by Wikipedia. However, I do not believe that Wikipedia provides an exclamation mark for us to gather information about them.

Also, I don't typically follow the more liberal 'sources' on particular news stories, so I am not sure if they have the exclamation mark. But, they would have to, right? It's only fair.

Deflect, Distract, Deceive

I've been amazed at how much time has passed since the *fake dossier [*fact] on Trump was presented as evidence for a *FISA warrant to be obtained, [*fact] so that *spying on the Trump campaign could begin [*fact]!

We can never forget that, as a result of deflections, many lives have been altered and changed forever; some now have records, some are doing time, rather than those that really should be doing time!

Stories of the lives of those who aren't the story, were never the story, should never have become the story, became the story.

The story has never been:

  • The fake dossier
  • Who was behind it
  • When did investigators know that the dossier was fake
  • Who all was involved in it

No, the story has always been about making Trump and any associate of Trump out to be traitors to this Country. If they had to go back in time to find something, anything to stick, then, by golly, that's what they did, whatever it took...whatever it takes!

No matter the evidence to the contrary, no matter where the story...should lead...deflect, distract, deceive, that's the end game.

Keep the story that is not the story, keep the person that is not the story....the story...keeping it, in the news!

F I S A

Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act

DEMS, always on the case...the wrong case

Oh boy and now Mueller will head to the Hill and he shall speak!

What will he say, will he finally put a nail in Trump's coffin; all of the deflectors, distractors, deceivers, must be giddy once again, in anticipation.

While they all anticipate the upcoming Mueller Speaks Chronicles... Schumer and company have had more successes, for now, in keeping the creepy Jeffrey Epstein and his creepy friend Bill Clinton, out of the news.

They've made it all about, Alex Acosta instead. They were successful in getting Mr. Acosta to step down, because he, Mr. Acosta, knows the deflectors, will keep the story all about him 24-7 and how he handled things all wrong a decade ago, in the Epstein case. Heck, him stepping down may not even deter them!

Of course, they, the hand-in-hand media/Dems, will continue to find any contact, conversation, anything they can make stick...between Trump and Epstein to make Donald Trump the story.

They are already doing it. I've already read the articles, they are front and center and hard to miss!

The Compassionate Party.....

The criminals, those whom have entered into our Country illegally, can't be the story.

The media/Dems have too much invested in them, so suddenly, they are forced to become the concerned and compassionate Party, the only ones who really care and the only ones who have ever really cared!

Shame on all of us, who don't focus on the misunderstood man, the hard-working woman, only their criminal intent; we are the problem: our not caring, not understanding...must become the story.

The same media/Dems who praise unlimited access to abortion, who stand and applaud abortion on demand and the right to abort those babies that survive abortion; those people, are going to single us out, preach to us, take the moral high ground... about our lack of "compassion and concern for human beings."

It is maddening!

Deflect, distract, deceive...make the person that is not the story, the story, make the story that is not the story.....become the story!

      I watched a little of the Mueller hearing yesterday, after returning from a little getaway and it left me questioning one thing and one thing only; was Mueller a part of, privy to, involved in the least with...'The Mueller Report'?

      Just laugh all the way to the bank when trolls send heated comments because their insistence on revisiting your article just helps you make more money for your conservative commentary. A win for you!

      Oh Crap, someone in the past or present has probably said, "strengthens my resolve", rest assured, Randy will be on the case. ;)

      Lucky...Blessed...you! I will be spending a long weekend with my three grand babies, can’t wait.

      Yes, Randy and I have gone a few rounds before and it just strengthens my resolve.....so no worries.

      I am glad to have you in my corner. :) Thanks Paula!

      Angie...It's only 7:30 pm. here & my darling Grand daughter is taking her bath so Gram has a few minutes to herself. Hey, girlfriend....I am sorry to see that some members here are beginning to get unbearable....well, OK, downright nasty. In fact, "some" of those who have resorted to being so bold and brash have truly surprised me. It's sad to see some who have stooped to the ignorant, disgusting & pathetic lows of Leslie....the lowest bottom-feeder of them all.

      You don't deserve such treatment & it's disappointing to see it happening. Thankfully, you're made from good strong stock!

      Pls just know I'm in your corner. Peace Paula

      So you came up with this article without using anything you learned from Limbaugh? I didn't know you could get inside the heads of the squad, but that's good to know....

    • abwilliams profile imageAUTHOR

      A B Williams 

      2 months ago from Central Florida

      Also, if I were a member of 'the squad', you know, "woke"... I would have called you out on being sexist, viewing me as incapable of gathering my own thoughts, finding my own words, because I am a woman, but that's not me, so I will not go there.

      I do take things seriously that deserve it, AB. Unfortunately, Rush and Sean don't deserve such..

      Didn't accuse you of plagiarism, AB. Nice try though. "could have" doesn't mean "did". I should've guessed Limbaugh, but he's pretty much the same as Sean. I listen to both of their radio shows just to see what the latest right wing conspiracies are. They are funny as heck, but some take them seriously. Seriously!

      A B Williams

      Yes he and the Mrs...and Schumer... and Obama...ALL recognized the problem...talked about the problem...promised to fix the problem....but, to actually DO SOMETHING....What!?!

      Thanks for sharing Paula, hope the vacay is going well and you are having a blast! ☺️

      I think we have all had quite enough of the "woke" crowd, they can take their America hating-bashing, socialism-embracing, gibberish and hit the road Jack...(and Jill)

      I don't see true America-loving Patriots ever leaving, so if in the end, it forces a big showdown, then, so be it!

      We know the real story, we keep writing and educating Pop.

      I think we need an Inn down south...we can call it The Cabana. What do you think? :)

      The Dems have never been compassionate. They have been stone cold monsters using the troubles of their constituents to alienate them from the Republicans. Of course, they also never fix a dam thing. These are awful times in so many ways. The media affects our thinking, our ability to solve problems and our future. I can't imagine what would happen if a socialist was elected. Those who understand the perils of socialism would probably have to leave.

      Hi Vivian, I have nothing against Sean, just haven’t watched him as much in recent years, as I once did, but apparently.....I sound just like him...“verbatim”!

      Thank you and I sure hope that you are right, about people delving deeper into the story to learn what is really going on, rather than what is being fed to them.

      Shannon, yes the events of that day was certainly a wake up call. I think everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing on 9-11. Every detail of that horrific day is forever etched in my mind.

      A B,

      Right ON! Yes, the Left has the media in their pockets, and they all plot together how to spin the story so they all jive. Conveniently, they are sure to ignore the real story. Thank goodness for Fox News bringing things to light the other networks try to bury! By the way, I love Sean Hannity. He is fearless and won't bow to the fascists.

      Your article concept of making the story about things that aren't the story will hopefully help people to delve a little deeper.

      Hey, there! Guess I fit right in. LOL

      I think my senses became more alert (regarding things happening in the world and somewhat more politically) when 9-11 happened and I was just barely 19 just trying to make it through the day at college. Talk about a wake-up call.

      No, actually, I meant that. I know who they are, but I didn't pay much attention to current events back then. How old are your kids? I'll be 37 next month.

      You're right....because what kid or teenager actually pays any attention to current events? LOL

      A B Williams 

      2 months ago from Central Florida

      Yes indeed Shannon, those days are long gone!

      Although, back then the story, the narrative...would go the direction, (say a Walter Cronkite) would steer it and that was the story, the ONLY story, there wasn't anyone to counter, the three nightly news anchors.

      Way before your time!

      It really does feel like this last Presidential race ever ended and now we have to gear it all up another notch in anticipation for the next one But it is hard to know what story is what sometimes when watching the media. Or when just catching a part of the story. Things get taken out of context. What happened to when the media just reported the facts and then people formed their own opinions based on those facts? Unless it was an editorial, of course.
