“Winston kept his back turned to the telescreen. It was safer, though, as he well knew, even a back can be revealing. A kilometre away the Ministry of Truth, his place of work, towered vast and white above the grimy landscape.”…George Orwell “1984”

“His earlier thought returned to him: probably she was not actually a member of the Thought Police, but then it was precisely the amateur spy who was the greatest danger of all. He did not know how long she had been looking at him, but perhaps for as much as five minutes, and it was possible that his features had not been perfectly under control. It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself — anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offence. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called.”…George Orwell “1984”

“My starting point is always a feeling of partisanship, a sense of injustice. When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art’. I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.”…George Orwell essay 1946

Once again, we warned you beginning early in 2008.

Still don’t believe that the Obama camp has embraced the totalitarian tactics that George Orwell warned of in “1984?”

A passage from “1984.”

“With the deep, unconscious sigh which not even the nearness of the telescreen could prevent him from uttering when his day’s work started, Winston pulled the speakwrite towards him, blew the dust from its mouthpiece, and put on his spectacles. Then he unrolled and clipped together four small cylinders of paper which had already flopped out of the pneumatic tube on the right-hand side of his desk.

In the walls of the cubicle there were three orifices. To the right of the speakwrite, a small pneumatic tube for written messages, to the left, a larger one for newspapers; and in the side wall, within easy reach of Winston’s arm, a large oblong slit protected by a wire grating. This last was for the disposal of waste paper. Similar slits existed in thousands or tens of thousands throughout the building, not only in every room but at short intervals in every corridor. For some reason they were nicknamed memory holes. When one knew that any document was due for destruction, or even when one saw a scrap of waste paper lying about, it was an automatic action to lift the flap of the nearest memory hole and drop it in, whereupon it would be whirled away on a current of warm air to the enormous furnaces which were hidden somewhere in the recesses of the building.

Winston examined the four slips of paper which he had unrolled. Each contained a message of only one or two lines, in the abbreviated jargon — not actually Newspeak, but consisting largely of Newspeak words — which was used in the Ministry for internal purposes. They ran:

times 17.3.84 bb speech malreported africa rectify

times 19.12.83 forecasts 3 yp 4th quarter 83 misprints verify current issue

times 14.2.84 miniplenty malquoted chocolate rectify

times 3.12.83 reporting bb dayorder doubleplusungood refs unpersons rewrite fullwise upsub antefiling

With a faint feeling of satisfaction Winston laid the fourth message aside. It was an intricate and responsible job and had better be dealt with last. The other three were routine matters, though the second one would probably mean some tedious wading through lists of figures.

Winston dialled ‘back numbers’ on the telescreen and called for the appropriate issues of The Times, which slid out of the pneumatic tube after only a few minutes’ delay. The messages he had received referred to articles or news items which for one reason or another it was thought necessary to alter, or, as the official phrase had it, to rectify. For example, it appeared from The Times of the seventeenth of March that Big Brother, in his speech of the previous day, had predicted that the South Indian front would remain quiet but that a Eurasian offensive would shortly be launched in North Africa. As it happened, the Eurasian Higher Command had launched its offensive in South India and left North Africa alone. It was therefore necessary to rewrite a paragraph of Big Brother’s speech, in such a way as to make him predict the thing that had actually happened. Or again, The Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones. As for the third message, it referred to a very simple error which could be set right in a couple of minutes. As short a time ago as February, the Ministry of Plenty had issued a promise (a ‘categorical pledge’ were the official words) that there would be no reduction of the chocolate ration during 1984. Actually, as Winston was aware, the chocolate ration was to be reduced from thirty grammes to twenty at the end of the present week. All that was needed was to substitute for the original promise a warning that it would probably be necessary to reduce the ration at some time in April.

As soon as Winston had dealt with each of the messages, he clipped his speakwritten corrections to the appropriate copy of The Times and pushed them into the pneumatic tube. Then, with a movement which was as nearly as possible unconscious, he crumpled up the original message and any notes that he himself had made, and dropped them into the memory hole to be devoured by the flames.

What happened in the unseen labyrinth to which the pneumatic tubes led, he did not know in detail, but he did know in general terms. As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of The Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in its stead. This process of continuous alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound-tracks, cartoons, photographs — to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct, nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary. In no case would it have been possible, once the deed was done, to prove that any falsification had taken place. The largest section of the Records Department, far larger than the one on which Winston worked, consisted simply of persons whose duty it was to track down and collect all copies of books, newspapers, and other documents which had been superseded and were due for destruction. A number of The Times which might, because of changes in political alignment, or mistaken prophecies uttered by Big Brother, have been rewritten a dozen times still stood on the files bearing its original date, and no other copy existed to contradict it. Books, also, were recalled and rewritten again and again, and were invariably reissued without any admission that any alteration had been made. Even the written instructions which Winston received, and which he invariably got rid of as soon as he had dealt with them, never stated or implied that an act of forgery was to be committed: always the reference was to slips, errors, misprints, or misquotations which it was necessary to put right in the interests of accuracy.

But actually, he thought as he re-adjusted the Ministry of Plenty’s figures, it was not even forgery. It was merely the substitution of one piece of nonsense for another. Most of the material that you were dealing with had no connexion with anything in the real world, not even the kind of connexion that is contained in a direct lie. Statistics were just as much a fantasy in their original version as in their rectified version. A great deal of the time you were expected to make them up out of your head. For example, the Ministry of Plenty’s forecast had estimated the output of boots for the quarter at one-hundred-and-forty-five million pairs. The actual output was given as sixty-two millions. Winston, however, in rewriting the forecast, marked the figure down to fifty-seven millions, so as to allow for the usual claim that the quota had been overfulfilled. In any case, sixty-two millions was no nearer the truth than fifty-seven millions, or than one-hundred-and-forty-five millions. Very likely no boots had been produced at all. Likelier still, nobody knew how many had been produced, much less cared. All one knew was that every quarter astronomical numbers of boots were produced on paper, while perhaps half the population of Oceania went barefoot. And so it was with every class of recorded fact, great or small. Everything faded away into a shadow-world in which, finally, even the date of the year had become uncertain.

Winston glanced across the hall. In the corresponding cubicle on the other side a small, precise-looking, dark-chinned man named Tillotson was working steadily away, with a folded newspaper on his knee and his mouth very close to the mouthpiece of the speakwrite. He had the air of trying to keep what he was saying a secret between himself and the telescreen.”

From TheBlaze February 19, 2014.

“Obama Administration’s Plan to Study Newsrooms Is Drawing Plenty of Public Opposition”
“A plan by the Federal Communications Commission to study how news organizations select stories has prompted about 10,000 people to sign a petition demanding: “no government monitors in newsrooms.”

That’s according to the American Center for Law and Justice, which announced the petition Wednesday and said it reached that number within the first two hours.

Obama Administrations Plan to Study Newsrooms Is Drawing Plenty of Public Opposition

The FCC announced a Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs last year, saying that it wanted to understand the process of which stories are selected, station priorities, content production, populations served, perceived station bias and perceived percent of news dedicated to each of the “critical information needs” in a community, Fox News reported.

But Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the ACLJ, a conservative legal group, said he worries it could be used to intimidate certain news organizations into covering issues that government officials feel are important.

“This is an extremely troubling and dangerous development that represents the latest in an ongoing assault on the Constitution by the Obama administration,” Sekulow said in a statement. “We have seen a corrupt IRS unleashed on conservatives. We have seen an imperial president bypass Congress and change the law with executive orders.”

The FCC only has jurisdiction over the broadcast industry, not over cable news or print publications. Networks, local stations and most radio stations would be subject to evaluation.

“Now we see the heavy hand of the Obama administration poised to interfere with the First Amendment rights of journalists,” Sekulow said. “It’s clear that the Obama administration is only interested in utilizing intimidation tactics – at the expense of Americans and the Constitution. The federal government has no place attempting to control the media, using the unconstitutional actions of repressive regimes to squelch free speech.””

  7. Hmmmm…..an outline for what taking the “chip” could do to those who do….become robots for the controllers?

    In the first half, filmmaker and mystic ecologist David Sereda addressed such topics as the weakening of Earth’s magnetic field, and the massive drought in the western United States. According to independent reports, the planet’s magnetic North Pole has migrated 160 kilometers just in the past year, he noted. Because the Earth is a physical magnet, and the magnetic field’s movements have increased, this may account for the strange unexplained booms and creaking sounds heard around the world since 2012, he posited. In addition to scientific data, Sereda also incorporates his visions and time travel mind experiments into his research about climate and earth changes.

    The Polar Vortex’s arctic blasts of cold escaping over North America may be evidence of a magnetic field shifting– it’s like the magnetic field turned and shifted polar weather patterns 90 degrees to the side, he commented. The severe drought in states such as California, Oregon, Nevada and Arizona is being underestimated, and may be related to radiation in the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima. The radiation heats the water and causes a high pressure system that blocks weather systems from moving in, he suggested. Sereda also touched on the various ways electromagnetic frequencies affect the brain.


    In the latter half, journalist and author Daniel Estulin discussed how spectacular technological advances will soon transform humans into some other life form. The term TransEvolution indicates a change from human being to something new. “The generation of our children, the kids who are 15, 16, 17 years old, they are the last truly human generation…their children, and their children’s children will no longer be human;” they’ll be transhumans, cyborgs, and man-machines, he predicted. “We, as people of the planet Earth are standing on the cusp of the greatest change in the history of mankind…and people are simply unprepared for what’s coming,” he continued.

    We’re already beginning to see this evolution, he said, citing neurochip interfaces that could ultimately increase human intelligence to a large degree. He noted that a number of changes are outlined in the Strategic Trends Report (PDF), a document from the British government that looks as far ahead as the year 2040. Eventually, the goal of transhumanists is to move the human mind into a new vehicle, a humanoid robot controlled by a brain-machine interface. Estulin believes that the move toward transhumanism is part of a long range plan by the Elite, who seek to control and mold the human race, as well as reduce the overall population.

    All In The Communist Family
    Posted: 17 Feb 2014
    By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

    Leave it to the Communist Party USA to ride to the Marxist rescue for the November elections. They are intent on keeping the Senate in the hands of Progressives and fighting back hordes of Tea Party, right wing extremists. But as vampires shun the Cross, Commies fear the Constitution and freedom and they are about to get the subject lesson of their red lives.
    Last Wednesday, Sam Webb, Chairman of the CPUSA, laid out plans that were announced in a web seminar entitled: “Taking care of the future: from here to socialism.” Here is the announcement:
    Out of the shadows, into the light… Communists are no longer leery of coming out in the open and stating their intentions. Why should they be? According to Obama and company, we are all Communists now.
    Webb elaborated on the point that there is no direct path to socialism… to get to their destination they would have to endure a number of stages. He pointed out that it would be necessary to work with other leftist groups that shared common issues with CPUSA. This is a tried and true tactic that has, so far, been working:

  15. Arbiter Ruled SSA‘No-Match’ Letter

    Can Justify Firing: No Matchy, No Worky

    By Linda Jordan | Birther Report

    I learned a few weeks ago that infamous liberal attorney Gloria Allred once argued, on behalf of client Nicky Diaz Santillan, the undocumented housemaid for former Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, that if an employee gets a ‘No-Match’ or ‘Notice of Mismatch’ letter from the Social Security Administration (SSA) it most likely means that they are an undocumented worker and not eligible to work in the United States. I concur.

    In other words they are an illegal alien or do not have a work visa.

    As previously reported here, I came across a 2005 ruling that again confirms that a ‘No-Match’ letter raises, “legitimate concerns of INS violations and liability [for employers]…”.1

    For those of you who may not know, employers are required by law to run an employee’s name and Social Security Number (SSN) through the government run program called E-Verify2 to see if their employee is eligible to work in the United States. The program is run in conjunction with the SSA and Homeland Security. A ‘No-Match’ response indicates discrepancies in the employees’ name and Social Security Number. What kind of discrepancy? They do not match. The SSN they are using does not go with the name they are using.

    ……..Folks, ‘No-Match’ letters are not Valentines cards. They raise serious, legitimate concerns, red flags, which need to be resolved by an employee if they are in this country legally and if they want to continue to be employed.

    On August 17, 2011, as one of Barack Obama’s employers, I ran his name, birth date and the Social Security Number he is using5 through the E-Verify program. It came back flagged with a Special Indicator Code for fraud. Obama failed E-Verify and received a ‘Notice of Mismatch’ letter just like Nicky Diaz Santillan, the undocumented housemaid for former Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman and the 32 employees at Shaw’s Supermarkets.

    …….. A failure to pass E-Verify resulting in a ‘No-Match’ letter raises legitimate concerns that the employee in question is in this country illegally.

    Refusing to provide the correct information pretty much confirms that the employee is an illegal alien.

    For failing to correct the discrepancies E-Verify found in the Social Security Administration’s numident file, concerning the SSN 7 he is using, Barack Obama should be fired just like Santillan and the 32 employees at Shaw’s Supermarkets.

    For using fake ID to get on the ballot and in to the White House, Barack Obama should be tried for treason.

  18. Good early morning CW, et. al

  19. Good morning William, et al.

  20. CW…..
    I tend to believe that the notion of having newsroom monitors is really an attempt to INTIMIDATE radio and tv station owners into submission. I keep remembering the words of Chavez …..”It wasn’t until he finally got control of the media that he finally won control over Venezuela.”

  21. …..In Venezuela controlling the media isn’t ILLEGAL, but in the US it is a cat of a different color…..it smaks hard against the 1st amendment. It is obvious that Soetoro actually read the book given to him by Chavez. The book was the equivalent of Hitlers Mein Kampf.

  22. …….but all we hear from the elected Bastards, is something like “oh this really bothers me”or words like “very troubling”, or “concerned” blah! blah, yet not one of them does a damn thing to even TRY to fix the proble. This is because like Admiral Lyons said they have become politicised, which pertains mostly to the JOINT CHIEFS.

  23. I like what one of Fox’s people had to say. “If Soetoro is to get monitors in Newsrooms then it is only fitting that the stations be permitted to monitor CLOSED DOOR sessions of Congress.” Fair is fair. What is good for the goose is equally good for the gander.

  27. …….further the FCC does not have the legal right to dictate the newsroom selection of what to air, nor can it control what the printed news, even though the Democrats think they can force such action. In reality if the Dems keep trying this the media MIGHT just decide to tell everything which they have thus far kept silent about. Fair is fair, har har

    Bit of an overkill by BO.
    Already controls media.
    Of course. It’s a known fact that the LSM gets their daily talking points directly from the WH. They rolled over years ago and are defined as just open propaganda machines….pawns/robots. This is just another revenge against the remaining truthful facts out there and forcing them to bend to the perversion of message control. Once the big guys are forced out conservative bloggers will be next. Total control will be attempted. Those who say this can’t be allowed; not legal, etc. should only look to the corrupt authorities in place, like Mr. Holder, to see what chance the law has these days in this country.

    Any threats should be returned in kind if possible….like a threat to defund (if can’t get rid of FCC completely) the FCC. Unfortunately where is that will in our so called leaders? Haven’t seen it in all of the other illegalities up to this point. If they really want to interrupt these patterns of corruption now is the time to really look at the evidence in the hands, since the beginning, of Arpaio and others. Finally, take what is handed to them on a silver platter and do something to preserve their own existence. You so called conservative journalists….take the evidence and start finally getting these facts about this illegal person pretending to be king out of there and out of our governed lives.

  35. For those who post here who think their government WILL NOT fire upon them when ordered…..in the words of Jesse Ventura….THINK AGAIN !

    And who led the Military Attack on these hungry Veterans?

    None other than three of America’s WW 2 “heroes”, General Douglas MacArthur; future President (Major) Dwight Eisenhower; and Major George S. Patton who at the time, was commanding 6 BATTLE TANKS…

    The Bonus Marchers, believing the military troops were marching in their honor, cheered the troops until Patton ordered the Cavalry to charge them—an action which prompted the spectators to yell, “Shame! Shame!”

    After the cavalry charged, the Infantry, with fixed bayonets and tear gas (adamsite, an arsenical vomiting agent) entered the camps, evicting veterans, families, and camp followers. The veterans fled across the Anacostia River to their largest camp and President Hoover ordered the assault stopped.

    However Gen. MacArthur, feeling the Bonus March was an attempt to overthrow the U.S. government, ignored the President and ordered a new attack. The Bonus Army marchers with their wives and children were driven out, and their shelters and belongings burned.

    One common element seems absolutely clear, whether its hungry veterans, people for a free government, those questioning the legal status of their current leader, the co-opted “Tea Party”, or anti-war demonstrators, your government DOES NOT want you protesting for whatever reason.

    After all, the government can’t allow the slaves to have “too much freedom”.

    Many people wonder today if our military would fire against the people should they question their government by marching on D.C..

    If history is any indicator of this question ………….the answer is definitely Y E S ….

    p.s. Please not the beloved FDR was not exempt from shame in this short video……nor should he have been !

    This is your history lesson for today….no test to follow, but discussion encouraged !

    Remember this was just after 9/11……………….This is the U.S.A. at one of its best moments….
