A columnist and longtime conservative says his latest commentary was written to warn about the consequences of a truth-free society.

A columnist and longtime conservative says his latest commentary was written to warn about the consequences of a truth-free society.

"This is something I spotted years ago when I was an editor for The Los Angeles Times," recalls Robert Knight, now a senior fellow at the American Civil Rights Union and a columnist for The Washington Times.

"It seemed that people weren't so concerned with getting at the truth," he says, "but in inventing their own truth as in the phrase, Well that may be true for you but it's not true for me, or That's your truth and I have my truth."

Scott Adams: The Greatest Cognitive Dissonance Trap of All Time

Here’s the set-up:

1. The mainstream media knows they are smarter than Donald Trump. They see evidence of this truth all the time, although much of that evidence is confirmation bias.


2. Trump does something smart – accusing Obama and Clinton of being “founders” of ISIS. This is a clever way to get the world to debate Clinton and Obama’s ineffectiveness during a time when ISIS expanded. In other words, it is brilliant media manipulation, and it worked.

3. CNN and other Clinton supporters interpret Trump’s statement about ISIS as absurd and uninformed because they can’t imagine a scenario in which Trump does something brilliant. Trump being brilliant isn’t one of the options, as far as they know.

The reality of Trump’s clever persuasion is crystal-clear to anyone who thinks Trump is smart. Trump was clearly joking about the “founder” part to get people squawking, and it worked. Total success. Brilliant technique.

During the NRO's first operation, called Corona, the sats would drop film capsules for the Air Force to recover in mid-air. It was so secretive that Corona wasn't declassified until 1995, just three years after the existence of the NRO itself was declassified (though the first hint of the NRO was leaked to the public in 1971).
