Longtime Democrat operative, pollster, consultant and assistant to Jimmy Carter, stated on September 21st, 2012, at an event called "Obamanation: Day of Truth" that the American Media/Press had become "the enemy of the people." Was Pat Caddell speaking in Stalinist language or was he merely reacting in shock to the media's psychological operation concerning the events surrounding Benghazi?
As the following repost, by Roger Aronoff on September 27, 2012, confirms, Caddell recognized that the Media had turned into a psyops operation for the Deep State; he did not state it quite that way but from the examples he gives, that is obviously the point. This same Deep State Media, supported the Puppet of the Deep State who was Obama, lied and covered for him every single day. Since Trump is NOT a puppet of the Deep State, they lie about him, demean and attack him every day. THIS IS A CIVIL WAR and as Trump and Long Time Democrat Pat Caddell recognized, the Deep State and their wholly owned Press, the CIAmerican Media ARE enemies of the American People.
In remarks to the AIM conference, “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth,” on September 21st, former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.” Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.
Nowhere was this more evident than during the tragic death of a U.S. ambassador in Libya that was covered up for nine days because the press and the administration did not want to admit it was a terrorist attack.
“We’ve had nine day of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this,” said Caddell. “Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.”
Caddell added that it is one thing for the news to have a biased view, but “It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know.”
He closed his talk with these words: “The press’s job is to stand in the ramparts and protect the liberty and freedom of all of us from a government and from organized governmental power. When they desert those ramparts and go to serve—to decide that they will now become an active participants—when they decide that their job is not simply to tell you who you may vote for, and who you may not, but, worse—and this is the danger of the last two weeks—what truth that you may know, as an American, and what truth you are not allowed to know, they have, then, made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and, in my opinion, made themselves the enemy of the American people. And it is a threat to the very future of this country if…we allow this stuff to go on, and…we’ve crossed a whole new and frightening slide on the slippery slope this last two weeks, and it needs to be talked about.”
Face it, Pat was talking about the media having become more than just FAKE NEWS, more than just "dishonest news," more than just 'incompetent news," as Trump has said, but an instrument of totalitarianism, a state-controlled psyops entity.
It "appeared" under Obama, as Cuddell observed in 2012, that "the State" controlled the media, but when Donald Trump took control of the "Visible State" it became glaringly obvious that some force, other than the visible state controlled the media since they went to war with Trump and the American people. Thus the reality of the Deep State's Control of the American Media was exposed, even so the dullards can see.
Here is Pat Caddell speaking mere days after Benghazi and he is SHAKEN upon seeing the total control of the Media by the Deep State. "Terror attack on our consulate and our ambassador killed and they won't say it." "Yesterday, 20 American Embassies are under attack and NO WHERE in the press is it even mentioned." Can you just imagine how the media today would play embassy attacks on an endless loop all the while blaming Trump?
