The Latest From The Arnold Watch
Categories :: Schwarzenegger, Arnold

Great things are emanating from The Terminator’s Bedouin-style smoking tent, from which he fearlessly governs a few feet from Sacramento’s State Capitol. You were informed at this site just recently about the intrepid promoter of family values’ latest ploy to save money. He proposes cutting the six-day waiting period for dogs and cats at state-operated animal shelters before destroying them.

Avoiding a Public Relations Fiasco Creates a Public Relations Fiasco
Categories :: Iraq

Reminiscent of a back-alley drug deal, the Bush administration tossed the new Iraqi government the goods as they dashed out of sight -- two days ahead of schedule and in the virtual dark of (the American) night.

Solicitor General Ted Olsen Announces Resignation: Here's the 'Real' Ted
Categories :: Bush Administration

When I initially created the reference "Mass Exodus: 85 (Now 86) High Level Resignations and Dismissals Plague the Bush Administration's First Term", I tossed in a line noting that a high profile Bush Administration member resigns approximately every 2 weeks. I had no idea that Solicitor General Ted Olsen would be the next to keep the streak running.

Fahrenheit 9-11 is a Documentary Masterpiece
Categories :: Media

I recently did a review on Bill Clinton’s memoirs on Amazon.com and soon discovered that among fellow readers 1) I was among the few that read the book at all, and 2) I was among the very few that commented on anything appearing on the printed page. One individual submitted a “review” in which he merely stated “Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar!”

New York Times: Stop Fawning Over Schwarzenegger and Start Analyzing His Policies!
Categories :: Propaganda/Spin

Bill O’Reilly recently lamented that the New York Times has vacated its former position of being America’s great newspaper of fact and has become instead a liberal mouthpiece. Yes, Bill, we remember how the New York Times was in the forefront of turning Al Gore into, in the media’s jaundiced eyes, a “serial exaggerator” when he allegedly boasted of having invented the Internet and having been the true life example used by Erich Segal portrayed by Ryan O’Neal in Love Story. In the first instance there was egregious misquoting. Those of us who took the trouble to read the full quote in question know that Gore stated that he had voted in the Senate to provide the Internet’s original federal funding. Gore made no claim about being Erich Segal’s true-life lead character in Love Story. That erroneous claim resulted from a story in Gore’s hometown Nashville newspaper which he did not inspire and over which he had no control.

Initial Returns for "Fahrenheit 9/11"
Categories :: Media

As I argued in, "Tactic: See “Fahrenheit 9/11” on Opening Weekend", opening weekend revenues determine the life or death of any film. A strong showing will produce tons of media attention and possibly stimulate hundreds of new theaters to jump on the bandwagon. Help spread the word. See "Fahrenheit 9/11" this weekend!

Mississippi Burning: Help Bring "Fahrenheit 9/11" To this Right-Wing Stronghold
Categories :: Tactics

Listen up everybody. Let's try to bring "Fahrenheit 9/11" to Mississippi and allow these fine people to be enlightened by the reality of the administration that they support so strongly. This is how we will do it...

Tactic: Know the Criticisms of "Fahrenheit 9/11"
Categories :: Propaganda/Spin :: Tactics

Progressives at every level must be prepared to defend Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11". This involves not only exposing the lies and misstatements intended to undermine Moore's credibility, but also keeping the focus on the big picture.

How do you Energize the Political Process? How About Bill Clinton for Vice President?
Categories :: Tactics

A recent national poll reveals that Bill Clinton’s presidency is viewed favorably by 62 percent of Americans. Couple this with the fact that Clinton had a higher support figure upon leaving office than even Ronald Reagan. Also, see how the entire political process has been energized by his reemergence this week to promote his memoirs. An intriguing prospect arises. Should the two-term ex-president, whose national stewardship was viewed by better than sixty percent of his countrymen as successful, be John Kerry’s choice for vice president on the Democratic ticket this year?

Administration Lied About Successes in the War on Terror
Categories :: Bush Administration :: Lies :: Terrorism

On April 28, 2004, the State Department announced that newly available figures on global terrorism had declined dramatically. Senior administration officials touted the findings as evidence of Bush's success in countering terrorism. Problem is, the figures were completely wrong.

Tactic: See “Fahrenheit 9/11” on Opening Weekend
Categories :: Bush Administration :: History :: Tactics

Michael Moore’s newest bush-throttling, truth-bearing documentary, “Fahrenheit 9/11” is inundated with such “old news” revelations. Revelations of which the American public should be boldly aware before entering the polling stations in November.

Right Wing Republican Flag Burning
Categories :: Tactics

The Republican right has freely exercised the vicious propaganda ploy of seeking to co-opt the American flag while seeking to define liberal opponents as anything from indifferent to the nation’s basic values to outright treason, as evidenced by speeches of Senator Joseph McCarthy and books by Ann Coulter. While the Republican right has denounced as despicable the act of flag burning, a close analysis reveals that this pompously self-righteous group has engaged in perennial flag burning, not of the overt kind, but symbolically.

Tactic: Implement Radical Policy in Baby Steps
Categories :: Iraq :: Propaganda/Spin :: Tactics :: Women's Rights

Technique: Focus on Major issues piecemeal. Do not address them as a controversial whole. Instead, focus on the least objectionable parts. Once these have been accepted, then it is much easier to lead logically from the accepted piece to the more controversial whole.

Clinton's Attack Dogs and "Casting the First Stone"!
Categories :: Hypocrisy

Bill Clinton is back in the news with the publication of his long awaited autobiography. The warped mentality of the so-called “Moral Majority” was never more evident than when the attack dogs of the far right, bolstered by economic might supplied by reactionary billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, nipped at the heels of the popular president and sought to impeach him.

"It's the Blood, not the Dress Stain, Stupid!"
Categories :: Propaganda/Spin

In Bill Clinton’s 1992 winning presidential campaign adviser James Carville achieved enduring recognition with the famous strategy saying he tacked up on the wall of the Little Rock war room, “It’s the economy, Stupid!” The succinct message was that the overriding issue gripping the attention of Americans in the election was the economy. Now a new message should be appropriately delivered to the partisan Republican ranks, “It’s the Blood, not the Dress Stain, Stupid!”

"America - Love it or leave it!": New Slogan of the Free Speech Movement
Categories :: Philosophy :: Tactics

I think "America- Love it or leave it" should become the slogan of the free speech movement. As the freedom to speak one's views is surely one of the most cherished of our individual liberties, is it not clearly those who would attempt to silence the voice of others who are out of place here?

Russo's Double Play Try

Russo and his Republican allies are using the same tactic employed by Karl Rove and George W. Bush. You avoid honest debate and instead fall back on a huge cash reserve to attack. They are unaccustomed to nothing but rigged games played with a stacked deck. The time to stop them is now!

Action Alert: Campaign to Support Michael Moore and "Fahrenheit 9/11"
Categories :: Activism :: Media

Farenheit 9/11 opens on June 25th...but the number of theaters that will show it is still up in the air.

A movement is afoot to minimize the number of theaters that ultimately show this film, the Palme d'Or winner at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. The organizers of this partisan movement are attempting to undermine the credibility and marketability of Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11".

Steve Forbes on Reaganomics

Last week in the midst of the post-mortem discussions about Ronald Reagan and his political legacy Steve Forbes appeared on CNN with Wolf Blitzer. The former presidential candidate and staunch advocate of the regressive flat tax discussed Reaganomics with the usual dodgy rhetorical dance steps of its apologists.

The Arnold Media Two Step: Softball Mr. Muscles, Downplay His Opposition
Categories :: Campaigns

My last column on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first successful run for office focused on the media’s oversimplified pseudo-analysis with the result of a dumbing down of American democracy. The lowest common denominator is frequently explored, touting celebrity and ignoring or oversimplifying the basic issues that should determine election results.

Death is Death: Terrorism vs. Military Strikes

Which is worse, death by terrorism or death by military strikes? Is there a difference? And if there is, does that difference matter? Do you think the families of the victims of either methodology feel any less pain and suffering because of the capabilities of the killer?

Jefferson to Schwarzenegger and the Dumbing Down of America
Categories :: Elections

When President John F. Kennedy hosted a dinner for Nobel Prize winners he remarked that never before had so much cumulative brain power been assembled at the White House “except for those occasions when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.” The witty comment was apt. Jefferson helped found the Democratic Party, wrote his country’s Declaration of Independence, served as America’s third president, as well as founding the University of Virginia. He was also an architect, designing the domed Virginia state capital as well as that of Virginia University, along with his home in Monticello. He was also a lawyer, a legal scholar, a philosopher, a diplomat, and inventor. Jefferson is also noted for saying that if it came to a choice of having a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government he would infinitely prefer the latter over the former.”

Hannity and Colmes Downplay Their Opponent's Rhetoric
Categories :: Tactics

The other day, I wrote a piece titled Tactic: Downplay the Opponents Rhetoric that essentially showed how the legitimacy of your opponent’s argument can be undermined by simply ignoring the substance of his argument while providing a vitriolic or dismissive attack on your opponent’s words (or underlying agenda or other peripheral, easily attacked attributes) rather than acknowledging the facts and logic of your opponent’s argument. Luckily, Fox News Celebs, Sean Hannity and Alan Colmes were gracious enough to provide us with a vivid and timely example of this tactic at its best.




06/09/04 :: By Tom Ball
Tactic: Choose as Your Spokesperson, a Representative From Your Weakest Demographic
Categories :: Tactics

Make a point to notice that the proportion of women and minorities on TV talk shows representing Republicans is far out of proportion with the percent of the Republican constituency accounted for by them. Seeing such diversity on talk shows and editorial pages confuses the public and clouds the lines between the conservative and progressive ideologies.

We Are Still Paying for the Reagan Legacy
Categories :: History

Before anyone gets drugged under the ether of coverage concerning the greatness of the Reagan Legacy, take a step back and initiate a reality check. Reagan was an actor who played his greatest role as president and much of what emerged from his two terms in office, and is being repeated to date, is predicated on the building base of fantasy that enhanced his popularity.

Cheney Questioned in CIA Leak Probe
Categories :: Bush Administration

We have an interesting update to the “Is Another Watergate Beckoning?” story. Today’s USA Today reports via Associated Press the questioning of Vice President Dick Cheney in the continuing investigation by the Office of Special Counsel into the leaking of the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame by columnist Robert Novak.

Is Another Watergate Beckoning?
Categories :: Bush Administration

The widely discussed decision of George W. Bush last week to hire private counsel James E. Sharp prompts one to wonder if another Watergate is beckoning, and much sooner than later. As John Dean mentioned in his column at FindLaw.com, the idea of Bush taking this step as a purely precautionary measure is highly unlikely. It appears far more plausible that the old maxim of “where there’s smoke there’s fire” instead applies.

Tactic: Be Aggressive
Categories :: Tactics

Being aggressive helps push the debate to an issue most favorable to you. It puts your opponent on the defensive and gives the impression that you are tough, that you will not be someone's doormat.

Tactic: Be Bold
Categories :: Tactics

Most people are not bold. For when bold acts are executed, there are consequences. Often negative. In reality, we may think of bold things but rarely bring them to fruition. Why is that? Generally, people want to avoid tension or conflict and be liked by everyone. People are concerned with what others will think of them. Often, the mere anticipation of criticism is enough to thwart any attempts at boldness.

Ladies, They Invaded Iraq for You!
Categories :: Hypocrisy

Were it not for the gravity of the situation, I would find the current Republican talking head television scene funnier than Saturday Night Live at its most rollicking. Last night’s appearance by Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Chris Matthews’s Hardball provides a recent case in point.

Voting Wrongs: How Touch Screen Voting is a Catastrophe in the Making
Categories :: Election 2004 :: Elections :: Government :: Republicans :: Tactics

If the Canadians can use paper ballots in their presidential election and count their votes in four hours, why are we having such a difficult time counting and deciding how to count our votes in the United States? When did this become so hard for us to do?

The World Needs International Order, Not a Religious Crusade
Categories :: Anti-War

When General William Boykin spoke out recently and described the war on terror as a religious crusade, my surprise was that there was any surprise. General Boykin was not out of step; he was clearly in step with Bush administration policy. George W. Bush, after all, has stated his belief that God tapped him to be commander in chief. Fast buck televangelist Pat Robertson has recently furnished his vigorous assent, stating that Bush will prevail in the November election in a landslide because God has ordained it. Bush also believes that one cannot reach heaven without accepting Jesus Christ.

Is Tenet Bush's Designated John Dean?
Categories :: Bush Administration

As Richard Nixon began sustaining the first injurious fallout from the Watergate Scandal, the repercussions of which would ultimately topple him from power, his strategy was to present White House Counsel John Dean as designated administration sacrificial lamb. In his address to the nation announcing resignations in the wake of developing disclosures, Nixon praised close subordinates H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman as dedicated public servants. In his counsel’s case, he stated tersely, “John Dean also resigned.” The statement was as subtle as the proverbial sledgehammer, and was meant to be as harsh as its delivery denoted.




06/03/04 :: By Tom Ball
Tactic: Downplay the Opponents Rhetoric
Categories :: Tactics

Technique: Dismiss, berate, minimize or otherwise talk down any nonsupportive evidence or opinions thrown your way. Claim that the news or accusation is silly, irrelevant and/or unimportant. Whatever it is, it's silly. Stress that this is merely a distraction technique intended to take the focus off the true issue. At this point you state what you want the "true" issue to be. Of course this will be an issue that is to your advantage.

Bush's Dangerous Rush to Theocracy
Categories :: Bush Administration

A staggering nexus would be created if neoconservative jingoism is harnessed to Christian fundamentalist dogma. Religious myth would accordingly be linked to the most sophisticated as well as destructive modern technology. This is the most frightening element of the Bush rush to theocracy.
