It is a Pinocchio World

The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work … when you go to church … when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. What truth? That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.–The Matrix (Movie)

==The Perception Deception – Part One (David Icke)

Of course, it is always possible that a dumbed down nation whose collective knowledge has been shrunk to the size of a peanut has simply elected a reflection of itself siting in the White House (or more likely, playing on the golf course) and that we are him and he is us. Perhaps searching for some sign of intelligence in the universe is truly a wasted endeavor and that seeking it in the nation’s capital is even more fruitless. It may be so.

A world done in by stupidity may not have the same cache as a world done in by planned, calculated evil. So the most significant priority is to answer only one question in this Occam’s Razor world, have we really become so stupid?  The rest will follow from the answer.

And, today, Earnest is back at it.

White House really sticking with this denial that Obama’s “JV” reference was about ISIS

I started saying a couple years ago that this White House is better understood if one dispenses with the notion they have a strategy for anything beyond immediate, self-interested, crude, political survival/warfare on a day-to-day basis. In this case, clinging to this absurd notion that he didn’t know exactly who he was talking about naturally riles reporters (Ed Henry, on this occasion), who try in vain to make the White House admit what is patently obvious. As questions get more strident and pressing, ala the YouTube-blaming in Benghazi, Earnest will decry reporters’ interest in such petty “semantics” as distracting from bigger problems in order to distract from the fact that it is, indeed, an important and damning indication of Obama’s inability to anticipate anything in foreign policy.
