The GOP presidential race has never been more exciting than as in the last couple of decades with the run of the Donald. It is a perfect example of and individual who knows exactly how to play the media game and he has me as a fan. Everybody should pay attention to The Donald, the reality TV star of the apprentice taking the political landscape by storm. What people should understand is what TV does to the majority of humanity. The propaganda minister of Adolf Hitler Joeseph Goebles a media expert once said quote :
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it people eventually will come to believe it”. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” I do not say what Trump says is a lie ( I am a fan) but repeating his message is a strategic method.
Donald knows how to trigger human emotions.
Media Slogan: Make America Great Again!
Now let’s look at Donald Trump, he is an expert in media appearances being one of the most successful reality TV show hosts in the history of American television. For example look at The Donald’s appearance in the Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile Alabama. He enters the stadium with over 25.000 supporters with the music from Lynyrd Skynyrd Sweet Home Alabama. Music is also very important to put your image and message in the minds of the people. The next time they play a song they associate this with Donald Trump, surely the Donald leaving the stadium with Twisted Sister song “We Are Not Going To Take It” is all carefully planned and not a coincidence. I wonder when we will ever have a politician using the song all we need is love, but apparently the word peace and love is not what the majority of the sheep voters are familiar with. Good people like John Lennon, Kennedy and Martin Luther King get shot, they end up being murdered. Let’s hope the Donald does not step to much at those psychopaths toes! People love entertainment, if Matt Hughes would fight in the UFC, the first thing I think about is the country song from Hank Williams Jr: A Country Boy Can Survive!
Bomb the oil fields to cut of the money supply to Isis.
Take a stand for what you believe!
Trump was attacked by military generals which were put on CNN and asked their opinion about bombing the oilfields and taking the oil from Isis to stop their money flow ( solution from Donald Trump). These military generals went to war because their military intelligence said there were weapons of Mass destruction in Iraq, which was a lie. They went to war because 15 Saudi’s hijackers parked their planes in the WTC, what did the US do, did they go to war with Saudi Arabia, no the generals agreed to go to war with Afghanistan and Iraq? Did they bomb oil fields and secure oil fields? No, they bombed Iraq’s infrastructure and entire cities! These were the generals who talked on CNN saying you can’t enter a sovereign country like what Donald would suggest. Next time when they bring up this subject Donald, slaps them around the head with this statement.
Sometimes a bankruptcy is necessary and healthy!
Bankruptcy of the Donald.
Bankruptcy case of the Donald had been discussed in the press and the Donald’s response – he used the possibilities within the law. Now that is a healthy situation, if you can’t pay your creditors anymore you go bankrupt. Look at Greece, they’re getting the third bail out and then pay their previous debt intrest off with bailout money a few billions to the ECB bank, it’s madness. For that reason running a country like a healthy business is not even a bad idea. Adolf Hitler did not want to work with the banking system and use the Rothschild’s and British bankers. He started his own note for work and barter deals system and the nation became the strongest within 5 years while all other countries were still suffering from the 1929 Wall Street Stock Market Crash and worldwide recession. Don’t get me wrong I do not agree with many things Adolf Hitler did, but there were things he was right on point about. I do realize that quoting Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels should never be used as a persuasion part ( thanks for the advice Scott Adams book “Win Bigly” ), but shocking and waking up the people and creating attention sometimes requires a different approach, general rule for persuasion: don’t mention Adolf Hitler( negative or positive meant) in the same sentence!
The Donald at work catching media headlines on a daily basis.
Then there is Megyan the Fox TV anchor who was unfair to the Donald (sure she was) but when the Donald fires back it’s an outrage:
They tried to catch the Donald and proclaimed he was a woman hater ( if I look at his current wife and ex-wife’s, I must say he has a great taste of woman and must be a woman admirer)
“One of the things people love about you is that you speak your mind, don’t use a politician’s filter,” Kelly said. “But that has its downsides, in particular when it comes to women. You call women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.’”
Donald Trump replied: “Only Rosie O’Donnell,”. Bam Media Hype!
Recently another tweet of the Donald : @megynkelly must have had a terrible vacation, she is really off her game. Was afraid to confront Dr. Cornel West. No clue on immigration!” The media and Fox TV to make statements again and : All with special thanks to Megyan! Bam Media Hype!
Lawyer: Donald Trump called me ‘disgusting’ for request to pump breast milk
A woman comes forward with a breast pump story and the Donald makes a public statement she wanted to feed her baby right in front of him by breastfeeding the baby. Bam Media Hype!
Controversy used for personal branding the master at work!
Senator Mc Cain heroism was discussed and questioned by The Donald. Bam Media Hype!
The Donald is putting out the mobile phone number of Lindsay Graham’s during one of his speeches on TV. This was the response:
Gawker publishes Donald Trump’s mobile number – and tells readers to ask him about his ‘important ideas’ Bam Media Hype!
Trump responded, thanks for the publicity do not forget to listen to my auto response when dialing the mobile number it has a great political message. Bam Media Hype!
Surely the last stunt with the Univision’s Spanish Journalist being removed from the press conference but then is allowed in by the Donald will be the next media hype to be seen with the Donald at the center of all the attention.
Half a Billion dollars for the Donald not for his campaign but for himself.
People should realize that it has been said now multiple times in the press that The Donald has a 500 million dollar lawsuit against Univision. Trump even mailed his contract to the media to show he has nothing to hide and will win this case against Univision. Now what people should understand is that Trump is playing already some of his hands warning lawyers and especially judges. Those judges are going to be very careful in judging a case ( Univision) with the involvement of the possible future president of the United States. This is another great advantage for the Donald he does not even need to take 1 dollar from lobbyists ( he publicly denied a 5 million dollar gift in the media). The Donald cancels his TV Apprentice contract and gets a present for political correct stupidity from Univision, they are going to bleed.
I would suggest Danna White from the UFC, Vince McMahon from the WWE and Don King from Boxing to take a seminar with the Donald on how to work with the Media ( Ok, I admit I would love to be there myself as well).
My experience with the main stream Media.
Bas Boon and Sonja Barend at Barend & Witmann
I have had my experience with the media at young age especially during the rise of MMA, I remember a TV interview with a famous Dutch TV talk show host named Sonja Barend in a program from Barend & Witteman ( known for her left wing views). The interview was after I had held my first Cage fight on Dutch soil and the media hype was at apocalyptic proportions. Never as a promoter of fight events had I had that much free media hype for an event I promoted. My timing was also perfect as no other sport events or big headline news subjects were taking place, my Cage Fight Event from Emmen Holland topped the charts. It even became a political question which was debated for hours in the Dutch politics. It was argued that kickboxing and MMA was a barbaric, blood sport and our culture was going backwards, it should be forbidden. The result was a sold out show with tons of international media present with live broadcasting and tons of revenues in the sales of TV footage and ticket revenues.
I noticed something in one of my first TV appearances and it was how the interviews were done with the candidates to attend the TV show of Sonja Barend. They would call you and ask you questions: would you say this and that on TV, they would try your emotions with certain questions, they were looking for characters who were pro Cage Fighting and characters who were against it, and stereo types what to think of a Cage fighter and promoting such a show? When I was present during the live studio broadcast the following happened, they had one of my cage fighters who was scheduled to fight the following show answering some question. He was asked to explain what he did to a burglar that broke into his car and also how he wanted to demolish somebody in a Cage. Then it was my turn to give my opinion, the problem was that the Cage fighter would be allowed to talk for 15 minutes and I would get less than 1 minute airtime. What is also very important is to talk in a nice relaxed way and not get annoyed or frustrated which would make you look aggressive ( I learned this later from a professional). The next show was with Katherine Keijl another Dutch TV personality by now I learned, I stayed relaxed answered politely with timely answers and opinions. They invited a politician a woman who was strongly opposed to MMA fighting. But she had no media experience and started shouting and interrupting my answers. This made her look unprofessional and she lost her audience, now I was getting more time to speak and even woman in the audience applauded me, I learned how to play the game.
Jacobse en van Es – De hele teringzooi van De Tegenpartij
I remember two comedians in Holland named Kooten en de Bie and they were doing political sketches during their shows. One of their sketches was called “De Tegenpartij” which mean the party of the opposite. When the Dutch went to vote that year, tens of thousands actually wrote “De Tegenpartij” / part of the opposite) on the vote paper (Kooten en de Bie’s Tegenpartij was not a political party) and tens of thousands voted for them. It all has to do with communication, being relate-able, humor and not being a dull political puppet whose voice is controlled by the big corporation’s, those days are over!
I can’t wait till Donald Trump becomes president even better his wife would rock as the first lady!!
