Obfuscation is the obscuring of the intended meaning of communication or the primary issues in a controversy by making the message or issues difficult to understand, usually with confusing and ambiguous language, red herrings (distractions) or other forms of misdirection.

The obfuscation might be either unintentional or intentional (although intent usually is connoted), and is accomplished with circumlocution (talking around the subject), the use of jargon (technical language of a profession), and the use of an argot (ingroup language) of limited communicative value to outsiders.

Classic examples of obfuscation are found in the LDS (Mormon) Church's "Gospel Essays" published under pressure to effect damage control over increasing and widespread awareness of the extreme disparity between actual historical facts in LDS Church history and the official Church narrative of its history.

Excellent discussion of the LDS Gospel Essays can be found on Mormonthink.com

Kill the Messenger   


Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Bourne Legacy”) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb.

Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges that the CIA was involved in smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua.

The greatest obstacle to the American dream
for most Americans has been the blinding conceit and self serving public policies of the illegitimate controlling elite (ICE) and the notions of their own entitlement as stewards of a false "greater good".

Draining the swamp is long overdue.

This distopian fiction published in 1949 is widely believed to be a frighteningly accurate description of the Orwellian state of American society and culture today

a critical examination of the most destructive species on earth and the paths of desolation left in its wake

Sir, No Sir
a profoundly relevant documentary featuring courageous resistance to the shameful insanity of times past
