GOP Trump Rationalizer, Kingston, Doubles Down & Crisis Actors

Before we start, know the following includes reference to an apparent strategy to respond to the Parkland Florida killings via blaming Left-leaning organizers for rallying high school kids. We assert the strategy has to reach all the way into the White House as we heard the similar reports on multiple media. Conservatives do not go maverick; they follow lockstep talking points developed at the highest levels in their party. That said, it is fair to note Trump talking heads are appearing on CNN today denying the strategy comes from their Chief Carnival Barker.

Yesterday noted CNN conservative and Trump presstitute, Jack Kingston, followed the post-Parkland Florida killings talking points like a real trooper.  It is apparent via watching all media the White House has decided to combat and respond to the killing of 17 people (15 high school kids) with a push-back strategy which is pathetic and shameful beyond belief. "The kids are being organized by uber-wealthy liberals and operatives on the Left." Yes, of course, and Obama wiretapped Trump's New York Tower and he did so safer while serving eight years as President despite his birth in Kenya.

Take a few minutes a view what seems comparable to what Germans must has experienced during Hitler's rise to power: unabashed propaganda.

The full segment follows.

And today, it seems CNN again booked Kingston for another segment of Trumpism.

Media Matters

ANDERSON COOPER (HOST): Jack, I do want you to address something. On New Day, you said -- you suggested that the students who are advocating for gun control have somehow been hijacked by left-wing groups, and that there is no way for them to rally nationwide without left-wing help. 
JACK KINGSTON: Well, I have a lot of concern of these kids, I'm a father of four, and I've been to many, many high schools all over Georgia talking to children, and I think when they're in an emotional state, they deserve to be heard, they deserve to be listened to, and I expressed that on the show also that I believe they're sincere. This is a horrible tragedy. Their hearts are broken. 
But also know that the state senator from there is facilitating their bus trip up to Tallahassee, which, when I was in the general assembly, by the way, was illegal to do something like that, to pay for somebody to lobby. The Democrat Party there is doing it, but what the big -- 
COOPER: So, you think they are - you think they are being hijacked by left-wing groups? 
KINGSTON: I think -- and I was referring to the national rally. It would shock me -- and I hope I'm wrong, I really do hope I'm wrong. But it would shock me if 17-year-olds around the country -- and lord, I agree with you, Van, very articulate, very sincere -- but it would shock me if they did a nationwide rally and the pro-gun control left took their hands off. 
[...]KINGSTON: I can say this, that as Rahm Emanuel famously said, "Never waste a good crisis."
It would be easy to simply accept Trumpism as a growing menace to the world and sit back hoping it will all come to an end in the near future.  The challenge is for rational Americans to take what Trump's propagandist and presstitutes dish out and help to spread facts and call out the lies upon hearing the lies.   

While I often criticize CNN for its business model of broadcasting point-counterpoint guest to entertain its viewers, it is important to view and hear the words of Kingston as an indication of what will be like if Trumpism isn't squashed. 

If you want to see the extent of Rightwing propaganda you may have seen or may even have spread. MSNBC's Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle offer a nascent example wort of all contempt.  Before the segment know that Donald Trump Jr. has also spread social media posts of this propaganda.

Did you spread that garbage?

CNN Host As Real-Time Fact Checker (13 Indictments)

A small man on a mission
CNN and MSNBC pay contributors to sit on air as supposed experts and feed us (network customers and viewers) entertainment as a nascent form of reality TV.  There is no greater enticement for US entertainment than Donald Trump as sick and pathetic a reality as we have ever witnessed.  Yes, Trump is good for business.

The surrogate talking heads earn fat checks as remuneration, the networks garner record ad revenues, political points of view are jostled like ping pong balls, and we are entertained.  A symbiotic relationship if one has ever existed.  

In order for the symbiosis to properly work and maximize revenue, points view and pique or quest for TV absorption, the circular relationship needs very special people. No not the network show host, nor his or her producers and writers; the entertainment needs duel compensated dinks with no shame and a willingness to lie incessantly even when facts refute their on-camera mission. The relationship has to involve people who are paid by the network as well as clearly paid by the person they defend. They serve as information protectorates and they will feed you any pre-scripted talking point to facilitate their mission. To properly close the loop, the taking head also has a key client: Donald Trump. 

Since CNN fired Trump's buddy and talking head Jeffry Lord, the network has replaced him with a couple of real conservative dinks: Former Congressman Jack Kingston and former Virginia Attorney General (homophobic) Ken Cuccinelli. A couple of real storytellers.

Watch as Kingston deployed common Trump/RNC strategy against any issue which speaks badly of Trump: "Obama did it" or "Hillary Clinton's fault". The current Hillary base feed message is Uranium One. Uranium One via Snopes dot com.

While Trump's base readily absorbs and assimilates the talking head messages, take a look at how it looks on national TV. 

CNN's Victor Blackwell remained steadfast and accurate in waylaying Kingston's White House script.

It is seriously pathetic we live in a time when a network news hosts must instantly fact check administration propagandist.  

The propagandist completely disrespects his audience via spewing lie after lie, while soaking-up Trump and CNN remuneration like sucking-up a Diet Coke with a straw.
