SABC: Resignation letter of Managing Director Rachel Kalidass (15.11.2017)

Uganda Communications Commission – Public Notice: “Warning Against Irresponsible Use of Social and Electronic Communication Platforms” (14.09.2017)

Opinion: Musalia Mudavadi never resigned, it was only a propaganda letter from Jubilee!

There are some shady games at play today, there been certain men out printing out and forging letter of a resignation of Amani National Congress (ANC) Musalia Mudavadi as a part of the National Super Alliance (NASA). Clearly, the Jubilee Party went out striking. Even I was unsure about the trick and published the letter without clear knowledge that it was fake. It hit a tailspin and within an hour or so, I had comments and sky-rocketing numbers on the post. That proves the power of publishing news.

So I got took by the fake letter and was wondering, what the hell is going-on in NASA. An hour later pictures pop-up that he was part of a discussions together with the rest of NASA at OKOA. Therefore, the letter seemed fake, but no-one was debunking it. Therefore, it happen for me, when the ANC released their statement and stated it was a fake in circulation.

After this the letter is claimed to be written and created by the Cambridge Analytica, also Alex Chamwanda and Dennis Itumbi. Dennis Itumbi is an adviser within the Office of the President. So he has the capacity and knowledge of pulling of a scheme like this. Also, the hired foreigners could do so, to prove about possible chaos within NASA. Would make it more reasonable to pull strings and make it believable that the NASA could lose in October.

Well, that isn’t the case, even if it was days with Party of National Unity, who went from Jubilee to NASA, than from NASA to Jubilee. They had like a week in opposition before returning back in the arms of Kenyatta. The relic of Kibaki had to go back to Kenyatta. So, it would seem possible that other could leave the coalition, but it is now proven to be hogwash and nonsense. That is good for NASA and good for the strength of the leadership of the coalition.

It is proven my smart eyes that the signature used is the ones of the deceased Marilyn Monroe, and she would have a hard time signing in Kenya, also that she been dead for a few decades. She are more dead than Tupac, and he is celebrated for his anniversary today. Therefore, the use of Monroe’s signature proves the length of fraud and forgery the Jubilee has done.

This proves the length of foolery they do. I went and got hooked by the trick. I admit it and waited for verification, that came from ANC. After that, even more proof of the deception came to the boulevard and into the open. Therefore, worth taking the time to prove. That paper of resignation shall and should be dismissed. Mudavadi was sitting as part of the leadership at the Okoa House today. He is going nowhere, he is not for sale like PNU was. Peace.

Politisk Reklame: SMSer er som Uadressert Reklame, kontroversielt javel, men lovlig!

Idag har Arbeiderpartiet sendt ut 500,000 SMS med beskjed at om man ønsker deres stemmer i valget. Dette har andre partier gjort før. Det er lovlig, men ikke like populært. Like populært som at man legger valgkamp materiell og brosjyrer i postkassene, når de er merket mot all reklame. «Nei takk, til uadressert reklame». Likvel, i følge våre lover og regler så har partiene lov til dette.

For å sette dette i historisk perspektiv så har Fremskrittspartiet gjort det samme:

«Vi har gjort en avtale med katalogselskapet Eniro, og det er de som har solgt oss denne tjenesten, sier Hanssen. De mange førstegangsvelgerne som i dag har mottatt SMS, har gjort dette fordi FrP har kjøpt lister fra Eniro, rettere sagt fra Inform, som er et datterselskap av Eniro. Inform som lever av å selge adresser og kontaktinformasjon, har solgt dette til FrP, og så har de brukt dette videre. Så vidt meg bekjent er det ikke vi som har sendt ut SMS, og vi er nøye med å følge de lover og regler som gjelder her, sier Bård Hammervold i Eniro til DinSide» (Pickard, 2009).

Sånn at når Arbeiderpartiet gjør dette i dag:

«En SMS ble sendt direkte til velgere søndag formiddag med følgende budskap “Hei. Stortingsvalget blir jevnt. Du avgjør om Frp og Høyre fortsetter i regjering. Vil du ha et skifte? Skole og eldre fremfor skattekutt? Stem Arbeiderpartiet!”. Arbeiderpartiet ønsker å nå bredt ut med vår politikk og mobilisere flest mulig til å stemme. I tillegg til markedsføring gjennom annonser og materiell har vi sendt ut brev og SMS direkte til velgergrupper. Kontaktopplysningene er fra Iper Konsumet, som er et register over norske konsumenter. Kontaktinformasjonen er leid for en gangs bruk. Politiske organisasjoner er ikke pliktige til å følge reservasjon mot direkte reklame» (Arbeiderpartiet, 2017)

Slik at både FrP og AP har brukt samme trikset i samme tidsperiode av valgkampen. De har sendt ut SMS med budskap om at man bør stemme på deres parti. Dette kommer rett i lommen på de lister og selskaps telefonlister som de har tilgang på. FrP brukte Eniro og AP bruke Iper Konsument. Begge er like irriterende. Like irriterende som at man kommer på dører, at det legges i postkasser og at det gis på trikken, bussholdeplassen og torv. Hvis du først ikke liker politisk agenda eller parti, så blir det provoserende. Det skjønner jeg, samtidig, ville du følt likt om det var ditt eget parti som sendte SMSer til deg?

Det er slik nå at partiene har lov til å delegere og etablere seg mer i den offentlige sfæren enn før. Dette fordi politisk reklame er helt greit, mens alkohol og tobakk er forbudt. Selv om vi vet hva vi får om vi kjøper Jack Daniels, Hansa Pils, Petterøs Blå eller General Snus. Vi vet hva vi får om vi kjøper dette eller reklameres får, men når vi ser smilene til Siv Jensen , Erna Solberg eller Jonas Gahr Støre på perrongen. Så kan de både selg fulg eller fisk. De kan selge fred eller krig. Ikke lett å vite av å kikke på plakater som er stylet og har et slagord. «Vi kommer i Fred», «Vi bygger verden», «Vi er imot skatter og avgifter» osv.

Derfor, skjønner jeg problematikken rundt SMSene, ikke at den er ny eller veldig kontrovesiell. Skjønner at folk ikke liker dette, like lite som uadressert reklame. Akkurat som en liker like dårlig at man får reklame midt under et ski-renn. Skjønner greia, men verden er full av reklame og politikerne vi har gitt seg selv rettigheter til å gjøre dette. Så lenge det ikke er lovstridig å stå på torv å gi ut valgkamp brosjyrer, sleppe disse i postkassene, fylle reklameplakatene på busser, rutebilstasjoner og ellers. Så vil også partier sende SMSer for å vinne noen flere velgere.

Akkurat som Høyre gjorde den ene dagen, gav en pose Solbær-toddy til forbipasserende når det regnet. I sammen klistred med valgkamp brosjyre. Samme som om man får en rose av AP. Dette er slik partiene driver og holder på. Akkurat som vi var små å raidet standene for å få drops fra de forskjellige partiene, der vi diskutere i flokk om KrF sine hadde bedre smak enn de som Venstre hadde. Slik er det bare og hører med valgkampen.

Selvfølgelig skulle registreringen i Brønnøysund gjeldt denne form for reklame. Slik at når du er registert skulle du være slettet fra lister. Men om man slår på TV så er det reklamer støtt og stadig. Samme form for budskap legges i postkassen. Den er i gatene og ved veiene. Dette fordi partiene har lov. Hvis vi vil ha slutt på dette, så må man få representantene til å stoppe dette. Slik de gjorde for Petterøs og Hansa. Som ikke lenger har reklame for tobakk eller øl. Bare alkoholfri øl er lovlig. Derfor er det mest Cola og Pepsi Max reklamer.

Hvis vi ikke vil ha det slik, så må det regelendring til, da vil dette bli ulovlig akkurat som andre former for reklame. Det er ikke lenge siden det var forbudt med politisk reklame. Dette ble åpnet for noen år siden og nå ser vi hva dører dette åpner. FrP har brukt denne i 2009, med blandede reaksjoner, det samme har nå AP. Med misnøye. Derfor, om vi ønsker andre former for kampanjer og annen form for politisk dialog og kampanjer. Så må vi ønske å forandre regelverket slik at Partiene ikke har lov. Enten så har alle lov, eller så har ingen.

Har også sett at Partiet De Kristne har sendt ut SMSer. Dette har ikke blitt tatt tak i, disse sendte til de «verdikonservative» i Norge. Jeg fikk selv en SMS fra Valg.no med dette budskapet den 6. September:

«Hei! Dette er en vennlig påminnelse om stortingsvalget 11. september. Demokratiet har bruk for din stemme, så husk å delta i valget! Hilsen valg.no» (Valg.no, 06.09.2017).

Slik at det er mange former og mange som bruker denne formen for å spre informasjon. Da må vi bare ta valg, vi må få representantene til å bestemme for oss og gjøre reelle beslutninger slik at slikt blir det slutt på. Det har vi gjort med andre ting, så hvorfor ikke dette også. Peace.

BTW: Jeg er ikke mot budskapet til AP idag, mer imot metoden, akkurat som jeg imot alle former for politisk reklame. Ser frem til busser og bussholdeplasser uten forfengelige politikere med slagord klistera over hele bybilde. Men det er bare meg.

Opinion: Fox News hired Tomi Lahren, because they needed another person to spin-news for Trump!

Fox News or Fox News Network are ready to become even more vigilant in their approach to news and to the principals of fun-loving non-facts driven President Donald J. Trump news-outlet. This is the reality after Fox News hired Tomi Lahren as a contributor at Sean Hannity. Sean Hannity is already one giant program made for the paradigm of fun-loving Trump. It’s only Fox & Friends that has as big man-crush on Trump. Now the former Super-PAC slogan queen Lahren has gone from the Trump Super-PAC ‘Great America Alliance, which is part of the Great America PAC.

Clearly, he final thoughts on the Blaze for Glenn Beck, which made the Blaze famous on Youtube helped her career. Even if she had to leave because of disgruntled case between former employee and the ethical code of the Blaze. The Conservative Media house couldn’t accept her belief and her Pro-Choice views. So it only took a few months from being fired and suing to become a contributor for Fox News.

As if she wouldn’t end at the Fox, she is like a younger Megyn Kelly, just with less intelligence and with mere facts. Tomi Lahren will continue to be the teleprompter and the angry voice of the right-wing paradigm at Fox. Surely, her parts of Sean Hannity will hit viral and make the show more popular. Especially, as her role will bring another bombshell into the screens.

That facts wouldn’t matter on the show, it is news-spin and state-TV for Trump. Both Hannity and Lahren will continue that. They have concern for the facts, it will be conservative TV fiction, even any HBO fiction show will have touch with reality, than the news and opinions spread by these two. These will surely just be there for the concern of Trump and spread his views on the cable-News channel.

Fox News: “In addition, Lahren will have a signature role on a Fox News digital product currently in development, the network announced. “I am blessed and honored to join the Fox News team. This exciting new step will allow me to give voice to all the America-loving patriots who have had my back since day one. I will remain a solid and passionate advocate for you,” she wrote on Facebook” (Fox News – ‘Tomi Lahren Joins Fox News Channel as a Contributor’ (30.08.2017) link: http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/08/30/tomi-lahren-joins-fox-news-channel-contributor

The bigotry, the racism and the hatred will certainly fit well with the Fox New paradigm, the misuse of information and trying to spin it in favor of the President. This is what Lahren will do and she will be paid-in-full. Peace.

Frykter for større politiker forakt: Når partiene tilbyr svære valgløfter uten å innfri!

Dagens politikere må frykte politiker forakten, den vokser og dette fordi deres holdninger og arroganse kommer frem under valgkampen, dette kommer på tv-debatter og andre innslag. Der en viser enten et fantastisk speilbilde av realiteten eller et så stort valgløfte, at hele verden vet at partiet ikke kan innfri dette.

Det er denne arrogansen og selvtilfredsheten. Der man kan ture frem med ordelag og skillelinjer som ikke tilhører denne verden. Dette blir gjort for å sikre sine velgere og samtidig skaper dette polarisering mellom velgerne. De som står ved ens side og de som er meningsmotstandere. Dette skaper ikke en positiv dynamikk, men mer usikkerhet. Der en lurer på hva vil være det skytsmålet mot opponenten.

Dette er slik det føles, dette er slik det kan tenkes, fordi de blir bare mer og mer av det. Dette med reklamer på offentlige steder, inne i aviser og slagord midt under dagsrevyen. Ikke bare i debatter og blant stemmesankerne på stands. Dette er overalt og ingen pauser. Det hele er brød og sirkus. Der løfter og lovnader kastes i vilden sky og håper at den treffer god jord, slik at det blir en blomst eller en fullvokst hvetekorn.

Denne følelsen av usikkerhet og av maktbalanse også setter sperrer. Der en lurer på om sin stemme blir den som bikker det mot sosialistisk eller borgerlig. Dette gjør at man kan enten på partiet man har mest likehetstrekk ved eller stemme strategisk å håpe støttepartiet får nok sympati til å kunne nå flertall eller størst konstellasjon av partier til å bli regjering. Dette er ikke lett.

Det er i et slikt bilde forakten er farlig, der de harde argument og de krenkelser av hverandre skaper ubehag og usikkerhet. Der forakten for politiker gjør at folk for avmakt for de og tilslutt føler avsky. Der løftene og valgkamp programmene blir smøre-lister for å oppnå gunst, men ikke nødvendigvis levere disse. Når det skjer igjen og igjen, når partier selger sin gunst for makt, istedenfor å levere sine løfter. Da begynner man å miste tiltro.

Det er dette som gjør det hele så skjørt, den dynamikken, de ord og handlinger som ikke samsvarer. Der konkrete fundamentale ideer blir til side satt og stilnet fordi dette egnet seg best for å få makt, ikke for å vise velgerne at de sto for disse verdiene. Det var mer kjøpslåing for å sementere makt, enn å faktisk oppnå løftene.

Dette er det som er farlig, når nok personer får denne følelsen. Der valgkampen blir mer et spill for galleriet, der løftene og reklame-plakatene er mer for å sanke stemmer, enn å faktisk innfri disse. Når det føles slik og kan tolkes dit hend. Da må man spørre seg om partiene må kikke i seg selv og ransake sine valgkamp-apparat ettersom tvilen til de blir sterkere. Peace.

Tomi Lahren new Ad-gig confirms that she is Trump’s new slogan-queen!

I am sure Tomi Lahren misses her old job at the Blaze, working for Glenn Beck and being the face of the Conservative Media House made around Beck. Surely, she must wish she didn’t end this way and into this sorrow gates. She is not even being a steady contributor or guest at news shows on Cable News. Tomi has popped by signing of ready made transcripts on Sean Hannity.

Lahren has even had some strange clips on her Facebook page to blow her fan-base and make sure people doesn’t forget her. Certainly, this wasn’t how it was supposed to be. She wanted to be the angry Megyn Kelly, instead she is now a part of Pro-Trump Super-PAC playing the ready made narratives of the Trump donors. This must be downer. Lahren has gone from making headlines and questioning Beyonce dances at Super-bowl to calling Left-Wings Snow-flakes and calling mainstream news “fake news”.

The stardom dwindles fast and without any forgiveness. Even the Contributor Kayleigh McEnany went from CNN to Trump’s ‘Real News’ from the Trump Tower to be the new spokesperson of the Republican National Committee (RNC). In addition, the Lahren’s of the world must feel the pinch. As her star isn’t rising when spinning the wheel of Trump. She might think she getting closer to it, but the progress of he administration isn’t coming as the internal battles between congress and the President isn’t strengthening the efforts.

This sort of Ads from the Great America PAC or the one directly hiring Lahren, the Great American Alliance are really just getting a familiar face and “the Final Words” that went viral all the time. Instead, she is now a punchline and someone who has to defend Trump.

She must really feel stupid and feel that she has lost ground. To be working for a Super-PAC paid by donors who still have faith in Trump. Lahren is not working for a TV station, not a media-house, but by a Super-PAC, as an Organization who are: “Great America Alliance is a not for profit social welfare organization formed under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to Great America Alliance are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes” (Great American Alliance Web-Page). This is a part of the Great America PAC. Therefore a Carey Committee, must be a downer to work in this.

I enjoy it, because she has thrown so many good people under the bus and spread such hatred, or hatorade to the public sphere without facts or any nuance of justification. Other than, all your others are cry-babies and we the Republican’s can save your ass. That is how Lahren has sounded. She is now an amplified Trump living promo person, instead of being a political commentator who means a damn. Even McEnany got a promotion and became someone, even if she had to become part of Trump’s online propaganda channel. Peace.

RDC: ARPTC – “Mesures preventives a prendre face a l’usage absif des reseaux sociaux” (07.08.2017)

President Trump’s ‘Real News’ is ready to Manufacture Consent and deliver Propaganda to the American Public!

There is time to take the Trump Administration seriously on how much they dislike the media and the stories written about the President and his pending cases. Therefore, he has now invented and started his own Trump Team TV, that is Web-Series that are actually filmed directly from New York and the Trump Tower. Clearly, the President is using the tools of propaganda to get his message out. This is official state TV. An we can already see the first B-Star TV-Personality joining Trump TV. They are clearly starting with once a week clips dropped on Facebook and on Twitter to the supporters of Trump. This will clearly escalate and also be a place for more questionable content.

Merriam Webster defines propaganda as: “the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person” and also “ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one’s cause or to damage an opposing cause; also: a public action having such an effect” (Merriam-Webster – ‘Definition of propaganda).

So now the President plans to use Facebook for his propaganda and his views in his own way. Without any hesitation or without any problems. This is state TV for his own cause and his own mission. To show his brilliance, instead of his lacking results and his ability to grasp Washington, while he also has a Russian Investigation that is spreading legs. This is clearly in mission to stop and shift the discussion. Where his daughter-in-law Laura Trump and now former CNN commentator are now in-charge off.

The Hollywood reported had to say this about it: “On Sunday, President Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, kicked off what The Hollywood Reporter has learned will be a recurring feature: a video segment posted on the president’s Facebook page that aims to present “real news” about what the administration is up to. “I bet you haven’t heard about all the accomplishments the president had this week, because there’s so much fake news out there,” Lara Trump says in introducing the video. “We wanted to give you a glimpse into his week.” In a statement to THR, Trump explained the thinking behind the weekly segments, which she said are emblematic of the president’s strategy of using social media to “speak directly to the American people” and bypass “the biased filter of the mainstream media.” (Barr, 2017).

First official TV commentator to joint Trump TV:

A day after Kayleigh McEnany announced she left CNN, she showed up as the centerpiece of a video clip posted by President Trump’s campaign team. McEnany, a pro-Trump conservative pundit who appeared on CNN throughout the campaign season, announced via Twitter Saturday that she was leaving the network. She said to “stay tuned” for details about her next career move” (…) “The clips have a format reminiscent of traditional news networks: The host appears on a screen in front of a graphic background. In this case, that background is a smattering of Trump, Trump/Pence and DonaldJTrump.com logos. Elected officials using websites and social media platforms to promote their achievements is standard procedure these days, but the “real news” series appears to go further, seeking to discredit the mainstream media and advertising what purports to be a reliable alternative” (Whattles, 2017).

So the “Real News” out of Trump Tower follows a special kind of ways of producing news, that is made directly and fitting the program of the President. It is his mind and his sort of ideas, what his men and his associates see what he does. Even if he is golfing all week, they will still claim the rates of the Dow Jones and the unemployment record of the month, even if it Elon Musk hired most of it to his promising industrial business. But Trump would take the Triumph!

It seems like Team Trump has now plans of using these tricks in their ways to sway public opinion:

Though Facebook doesn’t explicitly provide the tools to target people based on political opinions, the new study shows how the platform can be exploited. Using combinations of people’s interests, demographics, and survey data it’s possible to direct campaigns at individuals based on their agreement with ideas and policies. This could have a big impact on the success of campaigns. “The weaponised, artificially intelligent propaganda machine is effective. You don’t need to move people’s political dials by much to influence an election, just a couple of percentage points to the left or right,” says Chris Sumner at the Online Privacy Foundation, who is presenting the work this week at DEF CON in Las Vegas” (…) “Next, by administering various personality tests to a different group they found traits that correlate with how likely you are to agree with that statement on internet privacy. This was converted into an “authoritarianism” score: if you scored high you were more likely to agree with the statement. Then, using a tool called PreferenceTool, built by researchers at the University of Cambridge, they were able to reverse engineer what sort of Facebook interests and demographics people with those personalities were most likely to have. Just 38 per cent of a random selection of people on Facebook agreed with the privacy statement but this shot up to 61 per cent when the tool was used to target people deemed more likely to agree, and down to 25 per cent for those who they deemed more likely to disagree. In other words, they were able to demonstrate that it is possible to target people on Facebook based on a political opinion” (Revell, 2017).

So it might be the people behind the Team Trump who is using these techniques combined with the new Channel to enforce there beliefs and agenda to the Social Media. Not that it is sticking and has been mocked right now. But things begin in the small, before it blows out of proportions. Know that it now look like low-budget no-show. However, with time the messages will be darker and the rhetoric will be pushing to the extreme. As the possible investigation will strike where it hurts the most for the President.

That is why this is happening, since mainstream media, New York Times and Washington Post are explaining the leaks and verifying their sources, Laura Trump and Kayleigh McEnany will speak the message of Trump. The message of the belief and needed faith of the moment of the President. This will be propaganda and will be manufacturing consent. Chomsky states: “ Manufacturing consent is related to the understanding that indoctrination is the essence of propaganda. In a “democratic” society indoctrination occurs when the techniques of control of a propaganda model are imposed — which means imposing Necessary Illusions” (…) “Chomsky’s concept of NECESSARY ILLUSIONS is linked to power elites dominating how life happens, with part of the population — about 20% who make up the political class and are expected to participate as cultural managers in a limited fashion — are indoctrinated, and most people — the other 80% of the population — are marginalized, diverted from political awareness and participation in self-governing, and reduced to apathy so they don’t vote or take charge. Media are a tool of society’s power elites and owned and controlled by them and are used to impose those iIllusions that are Necessary to keep people diverted from the political process” (Chomsky, 2017).

So the Team Trump will work like crazy to create necessary illusions to its people, so they believe that Trump works for them. So he can manufacture consent and get more people on the Trump train, even as the investigation will leak more damaging evidence and the unclear business practices of the Trump Organization. Peace.
