Thom Hartmann thinks Trump 😈 is doing the Nixon (pretending to be totally nuts dangerous for negotiation purposes) strategy combined with the Goebbels dictate for Hitler. 👹

Goebbels told Hitler, in no uncertain terms, that they could control the populace, even though they had minority support, IF, and ONLY if, they kept everyone off balance. The other advice Goebbels is mostly known for is the Big Lie. Actually, Goebbels proposed both those ethicallly bankrupt strategies as part of a formula to achieve dictatorial power.

This required food fights, spats (real or not), outrageous demands, etc. to dominate the news cycle while a lot of 'progress' on their heinous plans went on behind the scenes until total dictatorial power was obtained.

I think Trump is following that script. I think the Koch Brothers 🦕🦖 handed it to him.


"One longtime Koch lieutenant characterized the overall strategy of Koch's libertarian funding over the years with both a theatrical metaphor and an Austrian capital theory one: Politicians, ultimately, are just actors playing out a script. The idea is, one gets better and quicker results aiming not at the actors but at the scriptwriters, to help supply the themes and words for the scripts – to try to influence the areas where policy ideas percolate from: academia and think tanks. Ideas, then, are the capital goods that go into building policy as a finished product – and there are insufficient libertarian capital goods at the top of the structure of production to build the policies libertarians demand."

The political activities of the Koch brothers include the financial and political influence of Charles G. 🦕 and David H. 🦖 Koch on United States politics.

An interesting documentary on Nixon. It leaves some important stuff out, of course. BUT, it does offer some clues about nixon's behavior not many people know about:

The second of a two part Reputations special, originally aired on BBC 2 in 2000.  This episode reveals Nixon's conspiracy to sabotage the 1968 peace talks with Vietnam in order to extend the war, allowing a Nixon election victory later that same year at the cost of thousands of preventable deaths.
