Yes, Hate the Game…but Sometimes too the Player



5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Became COO: Christian Jones
The biggest news stories generally only receive a day or two of coverage as the media’s focus shifts to the next “shiny object” that comes across the newswire.  In this hustle and bustle of changing news dynamics, patterns are often lost in the milieu of constant information overload.  This is the phenomenon of “overload apathy” that even the most stalwart newshound suffers from because of the 24-hour news cycle.

It is easy to argue that this rapid shift from one story to the next is coincidental, in fact, that is what the constant stream of media tells you- that the thirty seconds that an expert panel talks about a subject is enough to ‘give’ you ‘your’ opinion.  However, when stories that are damaging to people who are supported by the media, how quickly does the story change to something else.  The media/industrial message is that if the message changes fast enough, that people will quit paying attention.  Even the liberal icon Saul Alinsky said that if a story “drags on for too long it is a drag”.  It is a drag because people can look at the facts and dig deeper into the story.  When stories change minute by minute, people are struggling so hard to keep up with all the headlines that important issues like Eric Holder seeing no consequences for contempt of Congress, Clinton staffers smashing phones with hammers and getting off scot-free or billions of dollars in cash being shipped to Iran in the dead of the night pass through the news cycle with no outcry except the most hardcore followers of the news.

When people delve into the history of corruption in Washington, they begin to see that there are patterns in the crimes that the ‘elite’ perpetrated against the American people.  It is only when people take the time to navigate the history, specifically the history of the democrat party, that they see endemic corruption through the last century and a half.  When the focus is kept on the individual rather than the action, people lose interest in the crime and become focused on the persona of the perpetrator.  The drama around the Wiener case distracted people from the fact he only received 21 months in jail or that there were thousands of government emails that Congress was told were personal emails that were deleted.

The Criminal History of the Democrat Party, by Dr. Christopher W. Smithmyer through Elite Exclusivity Publishing (, takes the time to look into the history of some of the most corrupt democrat administrations since Andrew Jackson founded the party.  By taking the time to look at the corruption in each administration, patterns of fraud, corruption, theft and constitutional overreach become apparent.  Just like a hand reaching out to a flame to see how close it can get without being burned, patterns show actors in the democrat party seeing how close to impeachment they can get without punishment.  Each time they test the legal waters, they see how far they have to go in breaking the law before people will cause an outcry.  

As a nation, we have a need to oversee those that govern us.  Sometimes the constant stream of information from the media/industrial complex makes us forget that Washington governs at our discretion, we do not live at theirs.  To combat the corruption in Washington, people need to make themselves aware of the corruption; rather, than simply accepting the stream of media which they are fed by talking heads in companies owned by liberal enterprises.  When we research history, our own history, we can see how deeply the corruption runs and how we need to focus on the forest rather than the individual trees.  While watching the drama as a person is investigated for a crime has higher ratings, news shows that give us the facts about the crime and how they did it are much more useful for people who are looking to help correct the system through the ballot box.
