Shaping the narrative:
both the BBC and CNN are presenting the parades of North Korea celebrating the division of that country. LINK
Just ignore those folks starving in the countryside and in concentration camps.

Shaping the narrative take two:

All the headlines quote one of the "African American" jurors for saying Zimmerman got away with murder. Instapundit links to the Breitbart story which quotes Slate:
William Saletan at Slate points out that the unedited interview seems to show something different. Maddy actually hesitates twice when answering Roberts’ question which contains the statement “George Zimmerman got away with murder.” As Saletan points out “she looks as though she’s trying to reconcile the sentiment that’s been quoted to her—that Zimmerman ‘got away with murder’—with her own perspective. So she repeats the quote and adds words of her own, to convey what she thinks: that there’s a justice higher than the law, which Zimmerman will have to face ”

In World War II, there was a saying that was first said during the Battle of Bataan: "There are no atheists in foxholes",.LINK and many chaplains like Father Braun  stayed with their men during the death march, the POW camp and the hellships..

But never mind. If you use that famous phrase now in an essay in today's US Army, you will have the essay censored and be reprimanded for hate speech, according to a UKMail story. 

 Belmont Club points out: the US won't back the Philippines against China's land grab.

mutual defense treaty? What mutual defense treaty?

so will Japan help? Well, the shipping lanes go through the West Philippine sea,
But of course, China has no evil intentions of stealing fishing grounds and petroleum deposits from other countries.

treating PTSS by implanting fake memories. 


Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed the ability to implant mice with false memories. The memories can be easily induced and are just as strong as real memories, physiological proof of something psychologists and lawyers have known for years.
The findings are a serious matter. According to the Innocence Project, eyewitness testimony played a role in 75 percent of guilty verdicts eventually overturned by DNA testing after people spent years in prison. Some prisoners may even have been executed due to false eyewitness testimony. It was not because the witnesses were lying. They were just wrong, said Susumu Tonegawa, a molecular biologist and the lead author in the MIT study.

Sure. Why not? After all, good psychologists have been planting false memories and producing PTSS for years with a lot of success, so why shouldn't it work the other way around?
