Rumor Has It —That Nobody Wonders About Rumors
So, what has been the subject on the news since President Trump won the election?
The ‘rumor’ that Donald J. Trump was helped by Russia’s boogeyman, Vladimir Putin, to win the election. Everyone from Lindsey Graham, to John McCain, joined the whole liberal world screaming the accusation…but…
There IS no proof.
None. Nada. Zip. It’s all about destroying President Trump’s gold-plate reputation as a successful businessman who has great kids, a beautiful wife, and the energy of 20 men. His only vice (if you can call it that) is he likes to win.
The old “ruin their reputation” has been a favorite of the Democrats since they came off the plantations. And trying to connect President Trump to Russia is not sticking, but that isn’t stopping them from going full force on it.
Oh, wait. The deliberate attacks on President Trump had to stop today, because some terrorist mowed down some pedestrians in front of Big Ben. But by the afternoon, after we all got to see the disaster, they went right back at it….as if they couldn’t wait.
How do they take down Republicans? With simple rumors. Tax evasion. Or sexual perversions. They tried both on Donald Trump when he was running for office, but, it didn’t stick. And this won’t stick either.
Why? Because America, knows the con, and is tired of it. Not to mention we seethe at the great hypocrisy that we remember, of major crimes that were committed by the Clintons and the Obamas, and that was…ignored.
Guess what elite rookies? Hate to tell you, but your plan to erase our memories have not worked.
In the book, The 48 Laws of Power, Robert Greene explains how P.T. Barnum once used this tactic on an enemy, Mr. Pearle. Mr. Pearle had bought the Museum that Barnum wanted, right out from under his nose, and that was enough for some P.T. Barnum payback:
Barnum used two different tactics to ruin Peale’s reputation. The first was simple: He sowed doubts about the museum’s stability and solvency. Doubt is a powerful weapon. Once you let it out of the bag with insidious rumors, your opponents are in a horrible dilemma. On the one hand they can deny the rumors, even prove that you have slandered them. But a layer of suspicion will remain: Why are they defending themselves so desperately? Maybe the rumor has some truth to it? If, on the other hand they take the high road and ignore you, the doubts, unrefuted, will be even stronger. If done correctly , the sowing of rumors can so infuriate and unsettle your rivals that in defending themselves they will make numerous mistakes. This is the perfect weapon for those who have no reputation of their own to work from.
Right. See? It’s been around forever, and people have always fallen for it, and today you have cable news stations spreading the ‘rumors’, P.T. Barnum would have loved that.
Saul Slinky taught this attack method to both Hillary and Obama.
The rumor that President Trump won the election because Vladimir Putin rigged it, is just that: a rumor.
BUT…that rumor you heard that Obama went to Fiji (without Michelle) to marry his boyfriend?
That’s one you can believe.
