UK Guardian threatened with shutdown by British Government, Edward Snowden revelations of mass surveillance by US and UK security agencies, editor Paul Johnson, Orwell Big Brother spot on

“According to researchers, Obama’s line records were discovered in Series RG36, reference books.  Not surprisingly, when researchers specifically requested access to the relevant microfilm for the Obama birth registrations, they were told that the records were currently held under an outdated “privileged access” status, meaning researchers were denied access under Chapter 52, Sections 3 and 5 of the British Public Records Act of 1958. However, evidence shows these records were available for public access before August of 2009, the approximate date of arrival of Hillary Clinton in Great Britain during her trip to Africa that year.  “…The Daily Pen July 18, 2012

“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″

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

“1984” and Big Brother.

George Orwell was spot on.

 

 

From the UK Guardian March 27, 2014.

“‘Guardian’ reporting of Snowden leaks threatened with closure, conference told

Deputy editor details extent to which intelligence agencies tried to stop newspaper’s disclosures”

“The Guardian deputy editor Paul Johnson has clarified his statement at a radio conference in Dublin that the British Government would close down the newspaper over the Edward Snowden spying affair.

Mr Johnson was asked on Tuesday at the Radiodays conference what specific threats were made by the British Government if they were to publish Mr Snowden’s revelations of mass surveillance by US and UK security agencies.

Mr Johnson responded: “Yes, we were being threatened with being closed down.”

When pressed as to if that meant the closure of the newspaper, he added: “Well there are specific threats made and there have been specific threats made legally. We didn’t know if they were under the terror laws or the more ordinary laws about the seizure of journalistic material.”

He then played a video to show how the newspaper dealt with the threat.

He has since contacted The Irish Times to state that he meant to convey that the British Government would close down its coverage of the Snowden leaks, rather than the newspaper itself.”

“Mr Johnson revealed that a senior civil servant had told the paper’s editor, Alan Rusbridger, that the “prime minister, the deputy prime minister, the foreign secretary, the home secretary and the attorney general have got a problem with you”.”

  1. CW…….
    There is that tired and worn out word again “THREAT”. There was once a time when someone was threatened by another the person being threatened simply whipped out his pocket pistol and ELIMINATED the THREAT!…..Or at the very least the person making the threats would suddenly disappear,and never be see again on the face of the earth. It sounds like a bunch of kiddies on the playground,and the bully is threatening them…..so they whine and run to tell the teacher. Everybody is so damn afraid to even fart out loud. It is very clear that eventually the whiners are going to be cornered,and it will become a case of DO, or DIE. My point here is that using the alleged threat as a reason is a copout. We are seeing evidence of this all across our country,otherwise Soetoro, and his crowd would have become decorations on a live oak tree LONG AGO!

  2. I personally believe that one day soon Snowden will triumphantly return to the US a totally vindicated man. He might even receive a ticker tape parade, and the KEY TO A CITY…..although it probably will not be New York City(HOME OF THE LIBERAL MORONS.) If you don’t think they are morons, just stand for 10 minutes looking squarely into Mr.SHOOOOOOOMER’s face. With his glasses on the end of his nose ,and his head mechanically swinging from side to side lends the impression that his mentality lies somewhere between HALFWIT,and NINCOMPOOP.

  3. …….then take a quick look at Harriet. If you fail to see the twisted state of “HER” mind then you are totally blind. It is written all over her face. That compounded by her HAND WRINGING,and high pitched WHINE says it all.

  4. Seeing ,and looking at Harriet is enough make anybody vomit.

  5. YOU ASK WHAT’S WRONG WITH HIGHER EDUCATION?…..don’t laugh out loud !

    We could start here…..this is an essay that a black football player at the University of North Carolina presented to a non-existing class leader…it is 146 words and is supposedly the “Life of Rosa Parks”….this illiterate paper earned the grade of A- ……here is the paper the football player wrote and presented…word for word:

    ” ROSA PARKS: MY STORY: THE FULL 146-WORD TEXT OF THE TERM PAPER
    On the evening of December Rosa Parks decided that she was going to sit in the white people section on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. During this time blacks had to give up there seats to whites when more whites got on the bus. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. Her and the bus driver began to talk and the conversation went like this. ‘Let me have those front seats’ said the driver. She didn’t get up and told the driver that she was tired of giving her seat to white people. ‘I’m going to have you arrested,’ said the driver. ‘You may do that,’ Rosa Parks responded. Two white policemen came in and Rosa Parks asked them ‘why do you all push us around?’ The police officer replied and said ‘I don’t know, but the law is the law and you’re under arrest.”
    ————————————————————————————————–This paper doesn’t deserve the grade of F-……..but the black football player got an A-……so now you know what’s wrong with higher education…..we are graduating “educated morons” from our universities… if they can play football or basketball…..
    .

  6. Where else do we hear threats,and accusations coming from, as well as a another blatant LIE AS EACH MINUTE PASSES!

  7. RMINNC……..
    Sounds as though UP was DOWN even in those days. Would that football player be qualified to be graduated as an OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITH, or an overeducated MORON!

  8. OLDSAILOR81….how about an under on both of those terms……

    How about an UNDEREDUCATED…UNDERGRADUATED moron?

  9. RMINNC…….’
    You also need to keep in mind that such people RARELY get past the game of football in their station of life. So perhaps the alleged education isn’t even necessary,and in all probability is a total waste of resources in trying to do……because even after all of the college exposure damn few of them have ever acquired more than three words in their vocabulary. As each day passes we hear,and see plenty of confirming evidence of that fact. Even after 4 years of college damn few of them have gotten past the expression….”MOTHERF—–“, which they have shortened to “MUFFA”. Highly intelligent expression …..wouldn’t you say!

  10. RMINNC…..
    Makes me wonder if they PRACTICE what they PREACH.

  11. Sometimes when we deal with heads of state,we are actually dealing with some of the most sophisticated, and top level CRIMINALS in our country. Yes I would say that if Snowden revealed anything meaningful at all, hopefully it was in the form of documented HARD EVIDENCE relating to the HIGH CRIMES,and MISDEMEANORS which were perpetrated by the alleged UPPER CRUST of our PATHETIC government.

  12. RMINNC…….
    In my lifetime I have talked with only a few blacks who even had UNDERGRADUATE degrees.(BS-BA-AS). Many years back I almost hired a person who I thought held a BS degree. It turned out to be a BULLSHI# DEGREE. He showed me a complete transcript of grade averages, and all. Yet something told me to dig a little deeper. So I contacted Valporaiso University. I quickly discovered that the person to whom the BS degree had been conferred was not the person I was talking too. But rather than confront him with what I had been told I simply advised him that I had decided not to hire him. He was a black person, but it would have made no difference at all. I had asked for a recent grad with BS degree.

    OldSailor, I know what you mean. When I was in college, my roommate tutored a black basketball player (with a scholarship) in fifth-grade remedial Reading. Go figure.

  15. …….and NOW the people in the Christie administration have discovered (THE HARD WAY) just exactly who,and what they tried to screw around with. They obviously thought that NOBODY would ever figure out what they were up to….harhar, now THEY ARE UNEMPLOYED….har har again. Mssssssssss.Important thought she could be another Msssssssss.Lerner,and along with a secondary perpetrator tried to create a real fiasco for Christie, well they both discovered that he was NOT the fool that they took him for,and VOILA TWO MORE LIBERAL SLIME,are now looking for jobs. Ipersonally believe all that Christie has stated. His only fault (if you will) might be that he was a bit naive regarding the loyalty of his staff. TWO of them were BOUGHT by the LIBERAL DEMOCRATS of New York, which includes Mr. SHOOOOOOOMER. Tough luck Charlie, better luck next time! har har. I personally like Christie. For some time I have been hesitant to come over all the way to his side. But now I too stand behind Christie. I hope he runs for POTUS in 2016. Unless he does a 180 I will vote for him without hearing anymore. I am also impressed with the way he handled the LIBERAL PRESS MORONS as well. This tells me that he can think on his feet,and doesn’t need a teleprompter to offer an intelligently spoken answer. I wish him well.

  16. …… Boy wouldn’t Christie for Potus and Trey Gowdie for VP be a really lethal pair. One thing they both have in common is that both were former prosecutors,and both have one hell of a memory, and can call upon it at the drop of a hat,and with 100% accuracy, 24/7.

  17. ……There was an absence of the expressions “UUUMMMMMM”,and AAHHHHHH” from Christie. This too told me a lot about his thinking process. It seems as though the above expressions are more used by the LIBERAL SLIME when they can’t come up with an intelligent answer to a question.

  18. Good evening CW et al,

    Tuning in now, just walked in from out of State business travel.
