Your Lied-To Eyes: The Orb and the Big Picture

Remember this well-circulated shot from Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia last month?  Might make you think of some secret ritual done in the dark far away from any witnesses. The Internet certainly thought so and made no end of memes and articles discussing the dark, dark meaning of the glowing orb.

So was it a secret ritual in a hidden desert cave? Not exactly.

Here’s what the glowing orb Trump touched in Saudi Arabia actually was

In reality, Trump had touched the globe as part of an inauguration ceremony for the Global Center for Combatting Extremist Ideology in Ridyah, Saudi Arabia on Sunday. Together, the three leaders placed their hands on the globe to start a film about the center.The newly-opened center has a large TV wall displaying ongoing extremist activity and aims to come together to stop the spread of violent extremism, the Saudi Gazette reports. It will be used to monitor potential threats of terrorism and, through the help of experts, reveal and confront extremist speech.

As it turns out this picture….

was only a smidgen of this picture.

The power to select and crop images is part of the power to shape and distort history. Its a power that should not be given to quislings and traitors.

    I’d suggest Bill Jones take a look at the Nobel Prize winners in medicine and physics as well as CNN staff.

    This fits with what David said in the Saturday Review post 2 days ago. “People believe what they choose to believe.” The old legacy media despises PDJT,and are using every tool they have to disrupt & destroy. The cropped picture makes Trump look Mephistophilian,as was the intention. Remember the many,many pics of Obama with the cherubic halo glow about his head?
