“A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this. When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever: But thou, Lord, art most high for evermore.” Psalm 92:6-8 KJV
While the MSM disinformation doctors cook up their narrative(s) American Christians, constitutionalists and patriots are waiting with baited breath for the January 20, 2017 Inauguration of Forty Fifth President of the United States, Donald J Trump.
Here is a quick history on the American tradition of Presidential Inauguration ceremonies, aka the peaceful transfer of power. The Father of The United States, George Washington, was inaugurated on April 30, 1789. Subsequent presidents were inaugurated on March 4th until the second inauguration of 32nd President, Franklin D Roosevelt, which pushed the celebration forward significantly, landing it on the current calendar date of January 20th.
Optical dissonance is a term I recently coined that suggests the difference between what you, the viewers, are looking at versus what you actually see. Let’s take a look at the inauguration of one of the best loved Presidents, our 35th President, John F Kennedy (go on and admit it conservatives, you may not have voted for him but as a historical figure of great importance and tragedy, you like him.)
JFK knew that many Americans had a few concerns about the youngest man to inhabit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He was young and rumors whispered that he was a bit of a playboy. He was Catholic; our first. He fearlessly pronounced a new era, the era of the Commander-In-Chief born in the 20th Century.
So the JFK team leaned on recognizable inaugural traditions. JFK himself mandated that as a nod to earlier administrations, gentlemen were to wear top hats. Photo ops with outgoing President, Dwight D Eisenhower, were numerous and portrayed fabricated bonhomie. Poet Laureate, Robert Frost delivered a bard’s ode to the America of Norman Rockwell, now the era of John F Kennedy.
Kennedy knew that these optics would calm the average clock punching ham-and-egger. He went on to utter not only one of the most famous inaugural speech lines in American history, his challenge immediately found its place in the top tier of great Presidential statements:
That brilliant JFK/ Ted Sorenson pre-space age turn of phrase encapsulated in just 22 words what the following 1,036 days of Kennedy’s leadership would aim for, the epicenter of Americas’ imagination.
There are only a few examples of presidencies that began without a formal inauguration on the steps of The Capitol. Two are fairly recent and one in particular was all about optical dissonance.
Approximately two hours after President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, Lyndon Baines Johnson summoned longtime friend and Lone Star political crony, Justice Sarah Hughes to Air Force One. The temperature inside the Boeing VC-137C was kissing 100 degrees. Dozens of shaken insiders and a blood splattered Jackie Kennedy contorted themselves around the hangdog, felonious Veep as he placed his claw on JFK’s bedside Catholic prayer missal and repeated 36 words that changed history.
LBJ had never heard of optical dissonance but he schemed the drill well. Most JFK historians agree that Air Force One was delayed on the tarmac at Love Field so that a raw nation could see the beloved First Lady and the successor to her husband’s office demonstrate continuity of government. The question still reverberates around JFK buffs: did Vice President Johnson know that under the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution, he already was the 36th President of the United States and had been since JFK was shot through the throat on Elm Street over two hours earlier? If you suspect (as many of us do) that Shakespeare had it right, then the Dictaphone recording and images from Air Force One were part one of LBJ’s “inauguration” and the optical dissonance required to garner the crown.
When Air Force One landed at Andrews Air Force Base, with Kennedy’s corpse in a dismantled casket in the rear of the aircraft, LBJ furthered the optical dissonance narrative with this order (as quoted by Malcolm Kilduff):
“Winner, this is Warrior. Will you please advise press that normal press coverage including live TV will be allowed at the base. Volunteer (LBJ), repeat, Volunteer will make statement on arrival, will make statement on arrival. Did you read that? Over.”
The optics continued to make a single irrefutable statement; JFK was dead, LBJ was in.
Interestingly there is no law that indicates that a Bible must be used to swear in the President-Elect, but even the inerrant Word of God has been used much like a Hollywood prop to create the optics that support the ego driven and circumstantial need for correct Presidential optics. Most recently, 44th President of Kenya, Barry-whatever-his-name-was, took the oath for his first term by placing his hand on the Lincoln Bible. A Muslim lying (Taqiyya) with his hand on a Bible, on the steps of Congress. Classic optical dissonance.
Another important example of don’t believe what your eyes are seeing is the traditional “I’ll ride shotgun” of the outgoing President, right alongside the incoming Chief Executive. Historians note that whereas the drive is negligible from 1600 to the Capitol steps, the conversations are generally chilly to downright frostbitten. Hoover and FDR. Carter and Reagan. Bush and Obama. And Friday’s highly anticipated road trip with Obama and Trump. Typically the two Type A’s involved vacillate somewhere between “good luck buddy, it’s all yours,” and “man, the masses really are asses.”
- “As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
- There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
- That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
- And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
- And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
- When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
- As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
- The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!”
- -Rudyard Kipling, The Gods of the Copybook Headings, 1919
As you watch Friday’s Inauguration of Donald J Trump, there is a fairly simple procedure for deconstructing the tightly concocted conditioning that MSM will shove down your throat. Like most DIY hacks, it requires that you actually give a rip about getting legitimate results; in this case, your preference for reality and a complete indigestion of fake news.
The freshest way to watch potentially incendiary events without being forced to view the goings-ons through the network propaganda lens is easy. You will need two computers but a single computer and a smart phone will work fine.
First, download Periscope and/or U-Stream. These apps are your go-to for accessing the live streams from thousands of smartphones that are in the hands of citizen journalists on the scene. Essentially you use your largest monitor to watch the visuals provided without the filter of news editors and network muckety-mucks.
Secondly you will want your audio to be provided by a scanner repeater that covers the DC Metro Police Command frequency. “Command” is the police nomenclature for the “orders from headquarters” channel. Whereas there will be numerous EMS frequencies covering all aspects of the inauguration, police “command” will be the hub of who, what and where. Radio traffic to all of the other departments: tactical, transport, fire, EMT, admin., will all emanate from “command”. When Ferguson was lit up by the Soros crew, even Missouri National Guard were patched into the local police command freq. You will need a “10 codes” cliff sheet and you can find one here.
Do not let police scanner chatter thwart your investigation. With the above link printed in front of you, you will began to comprehend what is being said within a few minutes and there is actually a silly GI Joe-ish satisfaction to understanding whats going down in real time.
With this simple, free combination, you can watch Friday’s Inauguration with impunity from MSM spin-meistery and not only will you be better educated and able to form cogent opinions, you will be saddled for battle and playing your position as a no nonsense part of the movement to pitch optical dissonance into the fake news round file of history.
The Hagmann and Hagmann Report will begin live Inauguration Coverage at 11:00am EST on Friday, January 20, 2017.
