stivers-3-28-04-confidenceThe FUD campaign by Cameron and the Remainians continues. By getting big cheeses from the international stage to talk down Britain’s prospects outside the EU, they hope to undermine the British people’s confidence in their own ability to succeed in the wider world.

The mainstream media operates a complimentary tactic. Ignore or belittle the efforts of ‘the little people’ to make a positive difference to the ‘public’ debate. Downplay their popular movements, disparage their spokesmen and women. Deny them the oxygen of publicity. We’ve seen it all before in the climate wars. Now we’re getting the same thing again in spades with the EU referendum.

Between them, the establishment politicians and the mainstream media are trying to make us believe we can’t succeed with a brexit plan they and their paymasters disapprove of as being against their lobbying interests. They don’t believe in Britain any more, but they do believe in protecting their own financial interests.

When it comes to forming opinions and making judgments on hot political issues, partisans of both parties don’t let facts get in the way of their decision-making, according to a new Emory University study. The research sheds light on why staunch Democrats and Republicans can hear the same information, but walk away with opposite conclusions.

The investigators used functional neuroimaging (fMRI) to study a sample of committed Democrats and Republicans during the three months prior to the U.S. Presidential election of 2004. The Democrats and Republicans were given a reasoning task in which they had to evaluate threatening information about their own candidate. During the task, the subjects underwent fMRI to see what parts of their brain were active. What the researchers found was striking.

“We did not see any increased activation of the parts of the brain normally engaged during reasoning,” says Drew Westen, director of clinical psychology at Emory who led the study. “What we saw instead was a network of emotion circuits lighting up, including circuits hypothesized to be involved in regulating emotion, and circuits known to be involved in resolving conflicts.” Westen and his colleagues will present their findings at the Annual Conference of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology Jan. 28.

Once partisans had come to completely biased conclusions — essentially finding ways to ignore information that could not be rationally discounted — not only did circuits that mediate negative emotions like sadness and disgust turn off, but subjects got a blast of activation in circuits involved in reward — similar to what addicts receive when they get their fix

    Unfortunately Roger, history tells these scum that this tactic works.

    It is the very basis of the AGW Scam, now applied to the EU Referendum.
    Make up numbers to scare the public, get lots of well known people and the MSM to repeat the numbers ad nauseum, with no counter balancing narrative.
    The Brexit Campaign is going to need to come up with massive advertising to get anywhere, because most of the MSM and especially the BBC (British Brainwashing Corporation) will not give them a fair crack of the whip.
    The reaminians are desperate and will do anything to win, so I would not even put murder(that lloks like suicide) out of the question, David Kelly anyone?

    We are looking at an international conspiracy to erase nations and create an interlocking world wide ruling order of like minded Elites. Their New World Order of the connected “Entitled Haves” and the rest of us,” Have Nots” ruled surfs. There is no need for the surfs to have any say in this as they are not among the enlightened. Only a certain few will be among the Elite that will be advanced into the top tier of the rulers. These people will step on anyone to reach this top level.
    It would seem that in every Western Nation our leaders and Bureaucrats want to sell us down the river as slaves to win their position among the new ruling Elite.
    These people are the outgrowth of International Socialism that has plagued the world for a hundred years. The U.S.S.R. collapsed but the disease of Communism infested the education system from the top down. They have trained the Elite and now these Elite strive to institute, inflict their vision upon the rest of us. “Win one vote, one time and then prevent any further decent”.

    ‘The European Commission is secretly planning to take Britain to court, just weeks before the Brexit referendum, for making foreign trucks pay to use British roads.

    The £10-a-day levy was introduced in 2014 as a way of getting foreign lorry drivers to contribute to the upkeep of the roads they use.

    Even though British truck drivers also pay the charge, European Union (EU) officials claim it unfairly hurts foreign drivers as it was introduced at the same time as a reduction in road tax for UK vehicles.’
