In the September 2021 Issue

This month’s Tusk, unfortunately, reports on much of the disastrous shift in our Country since this “regime” has taken over and moved us to positions not seen since Jimmy Carter and puts our safety at more risk than prior to 9/11.  Inflation, security and our economy are now in play. 

Between now and next election day 2022 remember where we were and where we are now. 

CANDACE OWENS FIRES UP REPUBLICAN LIBERTY CAUCUS AUDIENCE IN FLORIDA
By Space Coast Tusk Editor Stuart Gorin

A record crowd of 560 enthusiasts attended the 13th annual Constitution Day Dinner by the Republican Liberty Caucus of Central East Florida in Cape Canaveral on September 11, to hear Conservative author and speaker Candace Owens address the challenge to them to reject the Left’s “victim” narrative. 

LET’S BE FRANK By Space Coast Tusk Designer Frank Montelione

By the time of this printing Afghanistan may be in our rearview window.  This is possibly the most outrageous decision to date. When we lived through the Obama/Biden administration we witnessed the formation of ISIS. Now that Biden is not in the second position, he has made the same error Obama did. We are witnessing the reformation of ISIS K, the threat from Al Qaeda, and the turning over of a nation to the Taliban. Biden single-handedly placed our nation in more jeopardy than pre-9/11.

--President Joe Biden, for constantly glancing at his watch during the solemn ceremony bringing home in caskets the 13 U.S. military service members killed by a suicide bomber at the Kabul airport. Desperate to move on, he could not deal with the reality of what he wrought. It was a dishonorable end to America’s longest war.

Updated Rules for Radicals - 25 Rules of Disinformation


The 25 Rules of Disinformation

We are in the post-constitutional era in the United States, a time when the government does whatever it wants to whomever it wants, and there is not a thing anyone can do about it.

How it is possible that the president can bomb a foreign country or threaten a full-scale international war without so much as even mentioning the need for Congress to chime in, let alone actually vote on a declaration of war?

The short answer is, disinformation and propaganda, which is the domain of mainstream media. When people are confused, when truth is hidden, when agendas are presented as life or death options, and when the public has no clue about which laws government is bound to, then anything goes.

Regarding disinformation, the following list of 25 rules of disinformation is from Twenty-Five Ways To Suppress Truth: The Rules of Disinformation (Includes The 8 Traits of A Disinformationalist) by H. Michael Sweeney, and offers a comprehensive way of processing information in a time of universal deceit.

1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don’t discuss it — especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

2. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the “How dare you!” gambit.

3. Create rumor mongers. Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method works especially well with a silent press, because the only way the public can learn of the facts are through such “arguable rumors”. If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a “wild rumor” which can have no basis in fact.

4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent’s argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.

5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary attack the messenger ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as “kooks”, “right-wing”, “liberal”, “left-wing”, “terrorists”, “conspiracy buffs”, “radicals”, “militia”, “racists”, “religious fanatics”, “sexual deviates”, and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

6. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism reasoning — simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent’s viewpoint.

7. Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could so taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.

8. Invoke authority. Claim for yourself or associate yourself with authority and present your argument with enough “jargon” and “minutiae” to illustrate you are “one who knows”, and simply say it isn’t so without discussing issues or demonstrating concretely why or citing sources.

9. Play Dumb. No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues with denial they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.

10. Associate opponent charges with old news. A derivative of the straw man usually, in any large-scale matter of high visibility, someone will make charges early on which can be or were already easily dealt with. Where it can be foreseen, have your own side raise a straw man issue and have it dealt with early on as part of the initial contingency plans. Subsequent charges, regardless of validity or new ground uncovered, can usually them be associated with the original charge and dismissed as simply being a rehash without need to address current issues — so much the better where the opponent is or was involved with the original source.

11. Establish and rely upon fall-back positions. Using a minor matter or element of the facts, take the “high road” and “confess” with candor that some innocent mistake, in hindsight, was made — but that opponents have seized on the opportunity to blow it all out of proportion and imply greater criminalities which, “just isn’t so.” Others can reinforce this on your behalf, later. Done properly, this can garner sympathy and respect for “coming clean” and “owning up” to your mistakes without addressing more serious issues.

12. Enigmas have no solution. Drawing upon the overall umbrella of events surrounding the crime and the multitude of players and events, paint the entire affair as too complex to solve. This causes those otherwise following the matter to begin to loose interest more quickly without having to address the actual issues.

13. Alice in Wonderland Logic. Avoid discussion of the issues by reasoning backwards with an apparent deductive logic in a way that forbears any actual material fact.

14. Demand complete solutions. Avoid the issues by requiring opponents to solve the crime at hand completely, a ploy which works best for items qualifying for rule 10.

15. Fit the facts to alternate conclusions. This requires creative thinking unless the crime was planned with contingency conclusions in place.

16. Vanishing evidence and witnesses. If it does not exist, it is not fact, and you won’t have to address the issue.

17. Change the subject. Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can “argue” with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.

18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can’t do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how “sensitive they are to criticism”.

19. Ignore proof presented, demand impossible proofs. This is perhaps a variant of the “play dumb” rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible for the opponent to come by (it may exist, but not be at his disposal, or it may be something which is known to be safely destroyed or withheld, such as a murder weapon). In order to completely avoid discussing issues may require you to categorically deny and be critical of media or books as valid sources, deny that witnesses are acceptable, or even deny that statements made by government or other authorities have any meaning or relevance.

20. False evidence. Whenever possible, introduce new facts or clues designed and manufactured to conflict with opponent presentations as useful tools to neutralize sensitive issues or impede resolution. This works best when the crime was designed with contingencies for the purpose, and the facts cannot be easily separated from the fabrications.

21. Call a Grand Jury, Special Prosecutor, or other empowered investigative body. Subvert the (process) to your benefit and effectively neutralize all sensitive issues without open discussion. Once convened, the evidence and testimony are required to be secret when properly handled. For instance, if you own the prosecuting attorney, it can insure a Grand Jury hears no useful evidence and that the evidence is sealed an unavailable to subsequent investigators. Once a favorable verdict (usually, this technique is applied to find the guilty innocent, but it can also be used to obtain charges when seeking to frame a victim) is achieved, the matter can be considered officially closed.

22. Manufacture a new truth. Create your own expert(s), group(s), author(s), leader(s) or influence existing ones willing to forge new ground via scientific, investigative, or social research or testimony which concludes favorably. In this way, if you must actually address issues, you can do so authoritatively.

23. Create bigger distractions. If the above does not seem to be working to distract from sensitive issues, or to prevent unwanted media coverage of unstoppable events such as trials, create bigger news stories (or treat them as such) to distract the multitudes.

24. Silence critics. If the above methods do not prevail, consider removing opponents from circulation by some definitive solution so that the need to address issues is removed entirely. This can be by their death, arrest and detention, blackmail or destruction of their character by release of blackmail information, or merely by proper intimidation with blackmail or other threats.

25. Vanish. If you are a key holder of secrets or otherwise overly illuminated and you think the heat is getting too hot, to avoid the issues, vacate the kitchen.

Rules for Radicals

en.wikipedia.org

  • Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals is the late work of community organizer Saul D. Alinsky, and his last book, published in 1971 shortly before his death. His goal for the Rules for Radicals was to create a guide for future community organizers to use in uniting low-income communities, or “Have-Nots”, in order to empower them to gain social, political, and economic equality by challenging the current agencies that promoted their inequality. Within it, Alinsky compiled the lessons he had learned throughout his personal experiences of community organizing spanning from 1939-1971 and targeted these lessons at the current, new generation of radicals.

Does this sound familiar???????????? And the guilt fed liberals and the media are helping him to do this.

He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing.  In the 1950s, he began turning his attention to "improving conditions" in the African-Americanghettos, beginning with Chicago's and later traveling to other ghettos in California, Michigan, New York City, and a dozen other "trouble spots".

The Rules

  1. "Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have."

  2. "Never go outside the expertise of your people."

  3. "Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy."

  4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."

  5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. There is no defense. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage."

  6. "A good tactic is one your people enjoy."

  7. "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag."

  8. "Keep the pressure on."

  9. "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. "

  10. "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition."

  11. "If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside; this is based on the principle that every positive has its negative."

  12. "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative."

  13. "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. "

 

Gee, who else made his way to Chicago in his footsteps doing the same thing with a law degree that he didn't use. Why? Because he never intended to be a lawyer. . WAKE UP folks AND MEDIA.


The Declaration is probably the most cherished symbol of liberty in America and around the world. Drafted between June 11 and June 28, 1776, by Thomas Jefferson, the document set forth a series of grievances against the King of England, which set the stage for the colonies to free themselves from the crown and become a self-governing nation. The Declaration of Independence is not the Supreme Law of the Land, the Constitution is. The Declaration is about the ideals of the developing nation. Independence Day, July 4th, is the ideal time to reflect and take inventory if America is living up to those ideals. Two days before the Declaration was signed, John Adams wrote to his wife of his excitement and hopes for the new nation expressing the importance of the Declaration: “It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.” Here are some little known facts about the Declaration of Independence in my top ten style.

Top 10 Little Known Facts about the Declaration of Independence

1. The physical document has lasted 236 years in part because the text was drafted using iron ball ink, which attaches to the parchment preventing the fading.

2. The Declaration hung in the Library of Congress within a shrine from 1924 until 1952.

3. The first draft of the Declaration contained a denunciation of the African slave trade. Congress made the substantial change to remove it to accommodate slave holding states and to get them to agree to the Declaration. Jefferson, although he was a slave owner, objected to the practice calling it a “cruel war against human nature. John Adams defended Jefferson’s position in the original draft.

4. A five-person committee was established to draft the Declaration of Independence headed by John Adams and Benjamin Franklin; however Jefferson was the main writer. Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston were the other members of the committee. Benjamin Franklin served as the editor of the document.

5. Jefferson adopted John Locke’s philosophy in writing the Declaration. Locke had previously written that man was entitled to life, liberty and property. Jefferson wrote in the Declaration the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

6. Publisher John Dunlop printed copies which were distributed to the public.

7. Jefferson was only 33 years old when he wrote the Declaration of Independence on a portable writing desk he called his “writing box.” The desk is on display in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.

8. Jefferson made several copies of the Declaration of Independence one of which is in the archives of the New York Public Library. Twenty-six copies exist with 21 of them in the possession of American institutions.

9. Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on July 4, 1826 – the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

10. The back side of the Declaration of Independence reads “Original Declaration of Independence, dated 4th July 1776."
