Apparently, Everything Is A Distraction
If you’ve read any political commentary for the past decade, you’ve seen this infamous statement.
Everything is a distraction, depending on who you talk to.
No matter the story—Someone, somewhere, will think it’s a distraction from some other story.
Here are just a few top comments I pulled from an assortment of mainstream articles within five minutes.
“It’s all a distraction!!!11!1!”:
[Regarding Hunter Biden Laptop] – The mission to distract from potential nuclear war is currently being conducted.
[Regarding China Balloon] – They will nuke Denver to keep us from seeing everything on the Lap Top from hell.
[Regarding China Balloon] – Next they’ll be shooting down large birds to continue the distraction from Biden’s Ukraine corruption.
[Regarding Russia War] – The war in Russia is a distraction from the plandemic. Have to have a greater distraction to cover up a lesser distraction.
[Regarding Twitter Files] – DISTRACTION from Epstein’s list.
[Regarding Epstein’s List] – Distraction!!!! From Twitter Files hearings!!!
[Regarding China Balloon] – Operation “Keep Pfizer out of the news cycles” seems like a success.
[Regarding Hunter Biden Laptop] – It’s a distraction. Get back to covering Nuremberg 2.0 and election fraud.
[Regarding Train Derailments] – Could this be a distraction from the economy?
[Regarding China Balloon] – Distraction from Biden family corruption, Pfizer shot sudden death, Ukraine, Epstein list, Ohio fire/pvc snow.
[Regarding Twitter Files] – What we know for sure is this is a distraction from FTX being a Democrat money laundering scheme in Ukraine
[Regarding Mass Shootings] – Just a distraction from FBI corruption.
[Regarding All] – All a distraction. C’mon people, wake up! All distractions from what is really going on!!!
This mantra comes up nearly every single time any news story pops up.
It does not matter the story. I guarantee that even if the United States nuked China, someone would say it’s a distraction.
Admittedly, I greatly struggle with this assertation. I fail to see the point of “distractions”. What do the rulers gain by “distracting” us?
The proponents of this statement do realize that as adults we can focus on two or more things, at the same time, right?
I can talk and think about the oil spill, a mass shooting, goofy spy balloons, the Nord Stream pipeline, and related topics without losing track of the overall picture or each individual happening. So can they. If they cannot do so, they are probably really dumb and should work on it—I mean this with reprimanding love. I know my readers do not share this issue.
They do also realize that the current state has unlimited power, is openly screwing around with us, and has no need for distractions, right?
I mean, come on, they outright stole an election—perhaps twice—directly in front of our faces. They put literal trannies in high office. The elites are openly touting Satanism everywhere. They have openly given hundreds of billions of our money to Ukraine.
And yet they think the rulers must now must distract from Hunter Biden’s laptop (which was fully released years ago) or the covid shots from two years ago (which we all knew were dangerous years ago)?
Give me a break.
They don’t need to distract from anything because they know the average American won’t do anything, anyway. Which is why they are openly doing these things to us, with no need for a distraction.
There are only two types of people that they could distract: the grey masses or system dissidents. Dissidents can handle reading multiple stories and will not be distracted. The grey masses don’t need to be distracted because they are normies. No one in the grey masses are going to riot so long as they have their comfort vices. So neither really matter. It seems more likely that events just happen and are exploited or covered up accordingly.
If the centralizers don’t want the media to report on the Biden laptop, or the Nord Stream story, they will just tell them not to play it. They don’t need a distraction. They’ve proven this time and time again, and those of us who have been paying attention should have caught on to this realization two decades ago.
Some people retort that the centralizers may not be able to distract us, but they use these tactics to distract the grey masses (normies). Sure, maybe. But who cares what the grey masses think or do? They will not help us, anyway. Even so, they can read two different stories, too. But when they do, they still won’t gain anything from either story, because they’re the grey masses. They have to be awoken from their slumber first.
It is, and has always been, my position that the centralizers are setting us up for disaster. They have no need for distractions.
Therefore, each piece of the puzzle is useful and should not be discounted or ignored.
My greatest worry with this distraction stance is that it causes people to not pay attention to specific actions done by the enemy. Even if the enemy is trying to distract us, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t learn from their playbook.
Most events fall under the following two categories: 1) the event occurs naturally and the elites capitalize on them or choose to ignore them, or 2) the event is directly manufactured for strategic goals that fit multiple objectives and are carefully carried out.
Our elites are setting up for a major play. Pay attention to all of those things. Each step they take is important.
The centralizer realizes this is chess; they will not do any particular move with little consideration. They are not frantically smashing on the suicide button. Each step is calculated, calm, and thoughtful. Do not negate any of them.
I concede that some of these plays may be purposeful misdirection, but I think just writing everything off as a distraction is harmful. Purposeful misdirection is currently rare, because they have no need to do so. They could literally tell us that they are going to shut down our entire economy and ban going to church, and the vast majority would not fight back (Oh wait—That already happened). So why would the elites be afraid of us finding out about some other story?
Maybe the Ohio train derailment was a distraction. But that doesn’t mean that the image of the black cloud arising from the city is not useful to be seared into the mind of the normie. Maybe the China spy balloon was a distraction. But that also doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t use the event to humiliate the current rulers and discredit the system. Maybe the Twitter files were a distraction. But they provide tangible, data-based evidence on illegal censorship that we’ve been claiming for years. So on and so forth. Don’t just negate the headlines; most can be used to some advantage.
I get the appeal of claiming certain stories as distractions to highlight other more pressing stories. But I’m not sure this is the best strategy for dealing with the lackluster headlines.
We may not yet see the full puzzle, but I guarantee you that those of us who take each piece they give us will see it far faster than those who throw half of them away as “distractions”.
There is nowhere in The Art of War where Sun Tzu says that we should ignore new enemy action to schizophrenically stay attached to other previous actions from months ago.
Quite the opposite. The Art of War says to pay attention to all the moves of the enemy. To never let go of positional knowledge.
Even going so far as saying the best method of leading your army is to thwart your enemy’s plans:
3. Thus the highest form of generalship is to balk the enemy’s plans; the next best is to prevent the junction of the enemy’s forces; the next in order is to attack the enemy’s army in the field; and the worst policy of all is to besiege walled cities.
6. Therefore the skillful leader subdues the enemy’s troops without any fighting; he captures their cities without laying siege to them; he overthrows their kingdom without lengthy operations in the field.
How can you do so without the knowledge of those plans?
You have to know the enemy:
18. Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
4. Thus, what enables the wise sovereign and the good general to strike and conquer, and achieve things beyond the reach of ordinary men, is foreknowledge.
The only way for us to know this enemy is to both carefully consider his moves and monitor what they say.
You need a macro focus. View everything from the perspective of a massive board game world map, where each piece and action has a purpose and an effect.
You can and should track all moves. Even ones that may initially appear as distractions.
Because you never know when you’ll think one small pawn-move was a distraction, when it reality it was the key positional piece to set up for the checkmate that you could have avoided, if only you followed Sun Tzu’s advice of always learning from every move of the enemy.
When that finale comes, I guarantee that it will not be a large one at first. It will be small, sly, and unexpected by most. Just like the most damaging punch in the fight is the one you don’t expect or see coming. It won’t be these obvious targets, and they will keep it very quiet long before it hits.
Never forget that our enemy has distortioners out there, and they can just as easily hivemind label a story as a “distraction” for their own benefit. Our centralizers have the power to do so.
Just be cautious with the quick write-offs of happenings. That’s all I ask. Be prudent and willing to consider multiple angles.
And do not get caught up in the meanderings of the grey masses.
We’re at war: Discount nothing.
