Operation Demoralize Is Back

Operation Demoralize Is Back

“The media swarms and lies. Tells you it’s over, wants you to give up. Happens every single time.” Don’t fall for it.

I understand how demoralizing the current situation is. The border is wide open. The full apparatus of the criminal justice system from DOJ to FBI to state prosecutors are weaponized for Democrat political purposes. To his (dis)credit, Biden has been able to do substantial and long-lasting damage to the country with just a 50/50 Senate.

Yet the narrative as recently as a month ago was that a red wave was coming in November.

That has changed. There is a concerted media effort to create the counter-narrative that the red wave has failed. Even though we are just entering the prime election season, and Republicans still lead in the generic ballot.

It happens every election cycle. Operation Demoralize.

What is it? 

“The media swarms and lies. Tells you it’s over, wants you to give up. Happens every single time.”

Melissa Chen described it back in 2020:

“Feeling exhausted & demoralized?

They want you to think you’re all alone, swimming against the tide. You’re not.

That’s the goal – to break your will, to train your attention on the inane and frivolous, to siphon it away from issues of existential gravity, of global import.”

View the early and notoriously inaccurate polling in this context. View the mainstream media analysis in this context. View Biden’s increasing incitement of conflict between Americans in this context. This is Team Obama 101 stuff.

Operation Demoralize will only get worse.

Don’t fall for it.

The Media will do its best to terrify the public the rest of the world goes crazy.

Next year at this time Europe will be in an Energy Induced Depression and Africa will see widespread famine.

Thank you for this, needed to hear it.

I unplugged them long ago. Don’t know what lies they’re rambling anymore, Turns out it was never relevant to my circumstances.

    Colonel Travis in reply to UnCivilServant. | August 28, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Ditto. The only time I ever know what the media are lying about, is when a place I trust (such as LI) exposes them. Otherwise, they all went to hell long ago for me.

A 50/50 Senate is not really a 50/50…it’s a 51/50 and even worse when you consider the creatures on the RINO side.

Journalism is about covering important stories.. with a pillow, until they stop moving

Where can I upvote this whole excellent and timely post?

The Deplorables are not falling for it. Just remember that the GOPe is as much a part of this as the democrats.

Supreme Court overturning Affirmative Action the week before the elections will be possibly as bad for Republicans as Dobbs. Absolutely should be done, but the timing couldn’t be worse. Not trying to demoralize but one needs be realistic. The lies, fear tactics and hysteria from our media will be epic… and Dems will be freaking out. KS abortion vote was just a dress rehearsal (I still haven’t gotten over it)

    Colonel Travis in reply to wsot23887. | August 29, 2022 at 6:30 am

    Oral arguments for the college race cases are the week before the election, not the opinions. You probably won’t see those until June 2023.

      Morning Sunshine in reply to Colonel Travis. | August 29, 2022 at 1:04 pm

      in theory… in practice, remember the Dobbs leak?

        Colonel Travis in reply to Morning Sunshine. | August 29, 2022 at 1:33 pm

        Dobbs oral arguments were Dec 1, 2021. That leak was May 2, 2022. In this or no parallel universe will a landmark SCOTUS opinion be written days after oral arguments. It takes months for an uncontroversial, 9-0 decision to be released.

    “Supreme Court overturning Affirmative Action the week before the elections will be possibly as bad for Republicans as Dobbs.”

    This is an opinion, based upon no real evidence other than the marxist baby killers stating they will not vote for republicans.

    There is nothing bad about Dobbs for republicans. The only damn thing bad for republicans are the marxist republicans that will not stand up for freedom and liberty.

I was thinking the last few weeks that the tone had shifted dramatically into “operation demoralize” especially among the fake conservative pundits … so I am giving a little extra time and money to candidates to make sure it doesn’t work. Especially the conservative ones that they say “can’t win” because they aren’t big enough RINOs

E Howard Hunt | August 29, 2022 at 7:26 am

Hang it up. All is lost.

    I live in Pennsylvania. The choice of Dr. Oz for Senate is STUPID. He can lose easily.

    We have had one Democrats, one Republican senator forever.

    We are going to get TWO Democrats now, and Casey is anti-abortion so he has no power with either party, he is a Democratic pariah.

    Fetterman is a died in the wool Socialist, and that’s 51-49 there.

    It’s all Republicans fault for not supporting the other candidate who could of curb stomped the Democrat because he’s not a carpet bagger Hollywood darling like Oz.

A friend of mine used the child safety features to block the ‘news’ on her parent’s TV. She reports her parents are back to their old selves without it. I don’t condone this, but it breaks my heart when I see previously happy people whose minds are broken by the propaganda.

How bad can things be when Trump was almost perfect in winning with his endorsements? McConnell/Pence RINOs (Democrats) were almost shutout completely. And Democrat voters aren’t happy either. How bad can things be?

    CommoChief in reply to Pasadena Phil. | August 29, 2022 at 8:36 am

    If the demonstration of DJT’s political influence carries over into the general elections and his chosen candidates are elected into office things will be bleak for the d/prog and the McConnell establishment. If Lake, Masters, Oz, Mastriano are defeated then that bodes ill for the populist right and undermines the indispensable man argument for DJT in 2024.

    Bottom line is these sorts of outside the establishment candidates need help to get across the finish line. Winning a r primary was the easy part. The real test is the general election in Nov. That determines if we reduce the power of the establishment by electing these candidates or if the influence of McConnell and his brand of inside the beltway small ball policies will prevail.

      Barry in reply to CommoChief. | August 29, 2022 at 5:11 pm

      “If the demonstration of DJT’s political influence…”

      Thus the reasons for republicans panicking and trying to lose. And they may succed, but that will be on them and the GOPe, not Trump. If the GOPe supported the primary winners this would not even be close.

      That’s the bottom line. It’s the GOPe that is the problem.

      DaveGinOly in reply to CommoChief. | September 2, 2022 at 1:48 pm

      If Dems win against any Trump-endorsed R candidates, that’s not much different from the election of a non-Trump-endorsed GOPe candidate. The very fact that there so many Trump-endorsed candidates made it onto the ballot at least provides an alternative to an establishment (D) candidate, compared to a choice between two (one D and one R) establishment candidates.

“Biden has been able to do substantial and long-lasting damage to the country with just a 50/50 Senate.”

Sadly, this also reflects on the ineptitude of the GOP, which cannot do anything with even more of a majority. And worse, it’s not only ineptitude but also complicity with the left.

Erick Erickson is a blowhard but was right about one thing – all of the MSM is dedicated to making you think you are alone in the way you think, work, worship, and behave. Polls are useless and are used by the MSM to help in their mission to make you feel isolated/other.

Send the legacy media as many messages as possible that they don’t influence your life at all anywhere and don’t accept their editorial choices in elections or advocacy posing as journalism.

    Scaramouche in reply to Steven Brizel. | August 29, 2022 at 12:24 pm

    Good advice Steven. Why not include a few “call to action” examples that readers could use?

    Politely emailing those reporters who list a poll and ask them if they could publish the actual questions asked and the exact percentage of Dems/Repubs/Indies in the poll might be one.

I don’t think there ever was a “red wave”. A wave implies that republicans can just sit back and win automatically like in 2010. That ain’t gonna happen. If they want to win, they have to work for it. If you boil it all down to the fundamental mechanisms of wave elections, the main motivations are anger and fear. Anger at what the party in power is doing and fear of what they are likely to do. It is about stopping them. A wave happens when one side is energized by anger and fear and the other side is siting on its laurels. This year the GOP side has reason to be angry and afraid, but the Democrats do too. They are angry at what a GOP Supreme Court and state legislatures have done, and terrified that a GOP Congress will ban abortion nationwide. And the independents and swing voters are conflicted. If anything, all the clues point toward a unique situation – a Midterm where everyone turns out at almost Presidential Election levels. That is what I expect – a record level of turnout exceeding 120 million in November. What that means for the results is hard to say, but whichever side is even marginally better at getting their people to the polls and persuading the swing voters will win control of the House.

It won’t work. They’re going to be crushed.

I live in a County in Texas that use to be solid Red. It’s right next door to Austin so with the high prices and bad schools in Austin, we have been invaded
They have brought their politics unfortunately
Nothing but Beto signs everywhere

Even with the huge invasion in Texas with the aliens

I have to say it is smart of the Democrats to hide these 3 million illegal aliens because you would think with 3 million they would be very visible.

Oh, you can see them in the ER’s, Walmart, etc, by so far they are not as visible unless you are on the border.

And of course, even the Texas media doesn’t cover it but in a blip.

    Milwaukee in reply to gonzotx. | August 29, 2022 at 10:41 am

    South Texas is where I’m living. Sometimes the local TV will refer to a dust up between criminal elements as including “foreign nationals”. How many of those 3 million are single men, of military age? With clean cut haircuts and clean clothes? The forces for evil are well organized.

    My concern is gazillions of voters will unexpectedly be added to the voter rolls too late to be contested.

The main reason for the polling showing Democrats gaining ground is so that we will not be stunned when the election take weeks to count and then the Democrat wins after the mail-in ballots are found and counted.

    Milwaukee in reply to George S. | August 29, 2022 at 10:44 am

    Only one case comes to mind when a Republican won an election with delayed counting. Otherwise, the democrat operatives find, unexpectedly, enough ballots.

True, and it is effective. But Republican leadership could do some things to counter it, but they don’t. Shouldn’t Republican Congress members have standing to sue Brandon over loan forgiveness for unauthorized spending? They should circle their wagons around protecting the party’s former president, they should be leading with a platform such as Gingrich’s contract with America, they should be organizing Republican-lead states to push back against an out of control federal government. They should be leading to reform so-called emergency power statutes to limit their scope and duration to protect civil rights. Just sending Lindsey out to make statements that aren’t going to be backed up with action isn’t going to cut it.

It isnt a 50/50 Senate – It’s a 50/39/10/1 Senate.

50 Senate DemoKraut Drones
39 Republicans
10 RINOs
1 Mitch McConnell – who is allegedly the consummate Washington insider, who is “known for his parliamentary prowess and tactical genius,” yet gets hoodwinked time and time again with promises the DemoKrauts make. Then, like Lucy, they pull the football out from under him EVERY time.

    Barry in reply to bhwms. | August 29, 2022 at 5:15 pm

    I think you have your republican and rino count reversed.
    McConnell is not getting the football pulled out from under him. He is an active part of the other side, owned by the CCP.

Beat the margin of fraud.

What, you thought this worked the same for either side?

“Game” — Contrived contests with an agreed set of common rules, applied differently for each player.

“Politics” — A game with real world stakes, and real world consequences for breaking the agreed rules; the first off which is “never admit the rules are different depending on who’s playing.”

“Election” — One move in particular government and political systems, which the official rules say determines who will govern, by a tally of the preferences of the governed. Neither of those is true in practice.

It’s not just about demoralizing republican voters. They are faking the polls, as usual, so that they can cheat and steal the elections. It’s harder to cheat when all the polling shows a “red wave”. So now all the polling will show democrats catching up, or leading, and when they steal the elections with all their usual fraudulent votes, people won’t be as surprised, and it will be impossible to challenge the fraud.
