The 'Obama's Favorite CEO' triggered thoughts about the source of a post that dislikes corporations that take advantage of tax breaks while at the same time promoting on Thoughts the policies that enrich them.
"Frank I. Luntz (born February 23, 1962) is an American political consultant, pollster, and Republican Party strategist. His most recent work has been with the Fox News Channel as a frequent commentator and analyst, as well as running focus groups after presidential debates. Luntz's specialty is “testing language and finding words that will help his clients sell their product or turn public opinion on an issue or a candidate.” He is also an author of business books dealing with communication strategies and public opinion. Luntz's current company, Luntz Global, LLC, specializes in message creation and image management for commercial and political clients."
"my job is to look for the words that trigger the emotion. Words alone can be found in a dictionary or a telephone book, but words with emotion can change destiny, can change life as we know it. We know it has changed history; we know it has changed behavior; we know that it can start a war or stop it. We know that words and emotion together are the most powerful force known to mankind."
The objective is to win, regardless of the facts or morality of policy. The chain of command runs from the international corporations paying the politicians re-election money, through the GOP gathering Republicans into ALEC to create legislation favorable to the corporations. It's a complete neo-con arrangement to control US government by the international corporate wealthy.
There's an amoral decision that the best world is run by corporate elite, leaving the people who can't contribute to corporate employment to fend for themselves with no support from surviving corporations. There's little difference between the idea of the English, French, and Russian royalty that provoked the democratic revolutions to reign in their greed.
"We decide based on how people look; we decide based on how people sound; we decide based on how people are dressed. We decide based on their passion. If I respond to you quietly, the viewer at home is going to have a different reaction than if I respond to you with emotion and with passion and I wave my arms around. Somebody like this is an intellectual; somebody like this is a freak. But that's how we make up our minds"
This is an extension of the psychology field of neurolinguistic programming, and a sub-branch of neuromarketing:
"Read Montague was still thinking about them. Something didn't make sense. If people preferred the taste of Pepsi, the drink should have dominated the market. It didn't. So in the summer of 2003, Montague gave himself a 'Pepsi Challenge' of a different sort: to figure out why people would buy a product they didn't particularly like. What he found was the first data from an entirely new field: neuromarketing, the study of the brain's responses to ads, brands, and the rest of the messages littering the cultural landscape. Montague had his subjects take the Pepsi Challenge while he watched their neural activity with a functional MRI machine, which tracks blood flow to different regions of the brain. Without knowing what they were drinking, about half of them said they preferred Pepsi. But once Montague told them which samples were Coke, three-fourths said that drink tasted better, and their brain activity changed too."
That gives an indication of the failed idea to spend millions from 'secret' donors to make political smear ads that influence voters. Fox, Breitbart and the GOP are folowers of Luntz teachings, That's why Brn's posts never seem quite right, they're designed to create emotion, not logic. They never seem quite right because they're illogical. No amount of fact, references, nor high information will change the prediction that the next post won't be a distorted view that can win a Pinocchio award.
The distorted logic of the "Obama's Favorite CEO" post is that after the IRS 501c4 'outrage' over particular groups being prevented from getting tax deductions for political ads, is that GE is singled out for getting corporate tax breaks because one of the CEO's tells Obama something. The illogic is that Brn supposedly can't see from his own posts that many corporations have been using the same tax breaks for decades. Further illogic is that Brn supports the GOP line to distort all news to create emotion to enrich the corporations that create their own tax breaks, The madness is that Brn uses tactics to stir emotion from his own emotion without being able to tie the facts and emotion together. A tragicomedy are they who like such irrational posts due to Stockholm Syndrome abuse.
"On January 20, 2009 Republican Leaders in Congress literally plotted to sabotage and undermine U.S. Economy during President Obama's Inauguration.
In Robert Draper's book, "Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives" Draper wrote that during a four hour, "invitation only" meeting with GOP Hate-Propaganda Minister, Frank Luntz, the below listed Senior GOP Law Writers literally plotted to sabotage, undermine and destroy America's Economy.
The Guest List:
Frank Luntz - GOP Minister of Propaganda
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA)
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA),
Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX),
Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX),
Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI)
Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA),
Sen. Jim DeMint (SC-R),
Sen. Jon Kyl (AZ-R),
Sen. Tom Coburn (OK-R),
Sen. John Ensign (NV-R) and
Sen. Bob Corker (TN-R).
Non-lawmakers present Newt Gingrich
During the four hour meeting:
The senior GOP members plotted to bring Congress to a standstill regardless how much it would hurt the American Economy by pledging to obstruct and block President Obama on all legislation.
Luntz has been the Republican Hate-Propaganda Minister since at least 1993 and his list of words to stop policies that help America are vast:
Don’t say “oil drilling.” Say “energy independence.”
Don’t say “inheritance tax.” Say “death tax.”
Don't say "Capitalism." Say "Economic Freedom."
Don't say that the government 'taxes the rich.' Say Government "takes from the rich."
Don't admit Lobbyists are Collective Bargainers for Corporations. Say "Union Collective Bargaining steals your tax dollars."
Luntz says people hate government so:
Don’t say “healthcare reform.” Say “government takeover.”
Don't say "Public workers." Call them "Government workers."
So we have no need to be confused by the Murdoch press. The fundamental purpose of the Fox, Brietbart, GOP, Koch, Adelson, et al, in ALEC philosophy is to do just as planned by Frank_Luntz to stir emotion to confuse voters to work against their personal interest in favor of international corporate profit. We can expect their followers to rail against social insurance around the world and start wars to destabilize nations so the corporations can extract natural resources under military protection.
An empire that works toward assuring food and health care to every person has a 'liberal' 'progressive' religious philosophy that has made the US and Europe good examples to developing nations.
The true evil empire is the gathering of Fox, Brietbart, GOP, Koch, Adelson, et al, in ALEC philosophy to do just as planned by Frank_Luntz to serve international corporations as it's the opposite of reason. Machiavelli has been an inspiration to elites who fight to survive for centuries, the newly examined same techniques work in the eternal fight. It's a cute idea to think of mankind running free like animals engaged in emotion while ruled by 20% whose reason provides that elite all the spoils; but it doesn't lead to peace because it's at the heart of prejudice and self-flattery.
An unfortunate turn of events is that international corporations have become larger than nations, so believe they should be in charge, when they no longer have loyalty to one nation and no need to consider the citizenry of any.
