We know that governments regularly violate laws and commit crimes to feed their agenda in the population.
In order to hide their criminal acts or blame others, they use the following approach which I have listed in a (non-exhaustive) list.
Parsifal, November 3, 2013
Image top: On June 4, 2009 warned Obama in his speech in Cairo sceptics of the 9/11 story and said: It's not about opinions that may be debated, but facts compel to action.
Tricks of politicians to deceive the people:
1 Impose a news blackout. If nothing is reported, if there is no message, then it is not happening.
2 Be outraged at the allegations and the questions alone. Use the 'how dare you' move and 'something like that we would never do'.
3 Denote the allegations as 'rumors' or, better yet, a 'wild rumors'.
Because if the public despite a news blackout in accordance with point 1 learned of the suspicious facts, it can be just a 'rumor'.
Anyone who believes in rumors must be 'paranoid' or 'hysterical'.
4 Place scapegoats, make them the offender, haunt them and bring them to silence.
Case can be closed.
5 Invent wild rumors or spread disinformation and let these run free.
Then debunk and refute them as lies.
6 Denote the skeptics as 'Conspiracy Theorists', 'Crazy' and 'Nutcase' and clearly as 'Rumor-mongers'.
Place them as 'irrational' and yourself as 'reasonable', claiming they were 'sympathizers' of the perpetrators and 'subversive'.
7 Engage 'credible' defense of your position and avoid an open and fair debate.
Remind people who can promote or destroy their career.
8 Create your own 'sceptics' to maintain the extreme stuff, show them in the media as representatives of the sceptic community and run them down in public.
9 Place into question the motives of sceptics.
Say they were not interested in the truth, but only pursue a partisan and political agenda.
Or better yet, they just want to make themselves important and make extra money.
Portray yourself and your defenders as selfless and disinterested, as a representative of the public interest.
10th Appeal thee onto your position and authority.
Use the (controlled) media (press promotion) and the fake opposition to strengthen your position.
Yes, if the President, Prime Minister or Chancellor says that, then it must be true.
11th Dismiss the accusations as 'cold coffee' and 'immemorial stuff', the theme would be done for a long time.
12th Denote the events to be incredibly complex and that eventually the truth about it can never be found out.
13th Argue conversely with absurd logic and set out incriminating evidence as irrelevant.
For example, say we have a free press if it was really so, then they would report it.
Or, if it was really so, why there are no insider bring it to the public ?
14th Require that the sceptics solve the crime completely doubtless and provide and deliver the offender to the authorities.
Since they can not, but only can reveal inconsistencies, make them ridicule.
15th Change the subject and care for distraction.
Stage a new event or bloat one in order to control the attention there.
16th Incriminating facts mentioned in passing, and do so as if these mean nothing.
17th Lie hard-headed people in the face and repeat the lies until are accepted as truth by them.
Quote 'facts' from a credible source, but must remain anonymous for 'security reasons'.
18th Question the qualifications and credibility of the sceptics.
Search for dirt in their past, or simply invent some, create a scandal.
19th Commit helpers (Trolls) defending your position on the internet and knock down the sceptics.
20th Confess a little fault and show remorse.
Call it a 'mistake' and a 'failure' for which you carry responsibility.
So you may give the impression to be sincere and honest.
Yes, so governments work.
Example of the above points are plentiful.
Unfortunately, most people fall for these tricks.
