“Those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat it”…George Santayana?

“[I]n the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes.”…Adolf Hitler Mein Kampf

“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″

 

 

A few moments ago I was discussing current events with one of my good friends. This friend is an avid reader and taught college level literature years ago. I explained to him that a lie does not have to be intentional to be a lie. I then used the unemployment rate example. I next explained that there were 2 broad categories of lies. Intentional and unintentional.

A few moments later, a friend/acquaintance walked in. A chap from England who works at the university. He believed that a statement had to be intentional to be called a lie. I disagreed and pointed to a nearby dictionary.

I was shocked but not surprised.

Welcome to the age of Big Brother.

Websters New World College Dictionary

“The official dictionary of the Associated Press”
Lie definition (noun)

“anything that gives or is meant to give a false impression.”

Reported at Citizen Wells March 9, 2015.

From Fortune.com February 4, 2015.

“Is the unemployment rate really just a ‘Big Lie’?””Clifton explains, accurately, that the Labor Department counts someone as employed even if they are working part time but want a full time job. It also considers people who have no job and haven’t looked for one in the past four weeks as “not in the labor force,” rather than unemployed. Clifton continues:There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.”

“The unemployment rate isn’t a “Big Lie.” It’s simply one statistic among many that we use to judge the health of the economy.”

https://citizenwells.com/2015/03/09/fortune-com-attacks-gallup-ceo-jim-clifton-unemployment-rate-is-big-lie-try-reporting-truth-use-dictionary-feb-2015-jobs-report-from-fortune-looks-like-a-lie-to-me-god-bless-clifton/

Clearly, since the unemployment rate gives a false impression, it is a lie according to the dictionary.

You have seen these quotes.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it”…Joseph Goebbels

“Propaganda must not serve the truth, especially not insofar
as it might bring out something favorable for the opponent.”
… Adolf Hitler

Were these lies?

Jews in the Lodz Ghetto were told they were being resettled.

Deportation-from-Lodz-595x396

They were, right?

“In fact it was a all a complete lie, designed to facilitate the conduct of the deportations with as little trouble as possible. So far in 1942 over 44,000 people had been deported – see Lodz statistics – and every single one of them had made the 60km railway trip to Chelmno and been gassed the next day, bar the very few who were needed in the work groups to bury the dead.”

They were given a false impression.

Do you believe that was not a lie?

    …….”YA VEE ISS DER SUPERMEN”,….UTTERED FROM THE MOUTH OF ONE OF A NAZI GOON IN 1943. HAR HAR……LOOK WHERE THE NAZI SUPERMEN ARE TODAY. THEIR LIES COULD NOT CIRCUMVENT REALITY,AND TRUTH, AND IN A LITTLE OVER 4 YEARS 90% OF THE NAZI SUPERMEN WERE DEAD. THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO RUN FASTER THAN THE SPEEDING BULLETS FIRED AT THEM. NOR DID THOSE BULLETS BOUNCE OFF OF THEM. IN REALITY THEIR SUPERMAN FANTASY WAS NOTHING OTHER THAN THEIR HOMOSEXUAL FASCINATIONS WHICH SEEMED TO PRE OCCUPY THEIR TWISTED,PERVERTED MINDS.

    Many of the Nazi hordes thought of themselves as an Aryan Master race. More of their twisted mental dis-function.

    On the morning show Fox & Friends, Geraldo Rivera, who frequently provides the liberal counterpoint, said the following regarding the root cause of inner-city black anger and unrest: “I hate to bring politics into this, but its 50 years of failed liberal, Democrat social policy that keeps them [inner-city black Americans] enmeshed in poverty.” BINGO! You could almost see the light bulb turn on above his head as he said it.

    It’s not the police. It’s not a broken legal system. It’s not white racism or white privilege.

    I think all of Obama’s accomplishments could fit on ‘a 48 cent stamp’…..
    A simple little ‘john’ would be most becoming for the most ‘do nothing’ president America has ever had….., don’t you think?

    I think one SaniHut could contain everything produced by the usurper’s regime.

    They could even plaster his logo decals all over the sides of the thing, and be proud of the usurper’s accomplishments, and in a display of transparency, it will be open to the public.

    Bob Strauss…………
    there is a smoldering hatred of the blacks across America,by some folks because they are families that have been torn apart by a RAPE or MURDER OF A FAMILY MEMBER BY A STINKING A$$ED BLACK PUNK, WHOSE PARENTS THOUGHT HE WAS AN ANGEL. I have personally socialized with black friends who I have known for many decades. I respect who and what they are. They showed me early on that they were people of moral and spiritual character. Throughout the years I have never heard them use the “F— YO mama words. Neither are college grads…..but both operate small businesses and have earned a great living from their respective companies. Both are home building contractors. One does plumbing and the other is an electrical contractor. Both do their work very well! All of their kids graduated from one of our most prestigious high schools,and all are well read,decent people who are already reaping some very nice rewards. Their fathers have taken the time to show them what hard work and respect of others will return. Sadly this is not true for an extremely large percentage of our young black communities across America………but there are NO HURDLES that they can’t jump over. Some earn lengthy criminal rapp sheets
    by the time they are 10 years old and because of this compounded by very little education puts a real unemployment drag on their lives.

    HAS ANYONE STOPPED TO THINK …WHY ALL THIS RIOTING AND DISCORD IN MOST OF AMERICA’S MAJOR CITIES CONTROLLED BY THE BLACKS?…….THERE IS ONLY ONE REASON…..

    Violence is now erupting in most major cities now where the blacks are in control, but there seems to be little thought given as to why.

    It isn’t because the police are trying to control the mobs, and it isn’t because the police are intentionally arresting blacks, and it damn sure isn’t because this unrest isn’t a ‘controlled environment”…because it it.

    When Baltimore erupted with major damage being done, the police were told to “stand down” and watch the violence, looting, and downright robbery as the damages increased……after orders were given by the black major of that city.

    We now know that that black mayor was in direct contact with Vallery Jarrett, and the new black Attorney General, Loretta Lynch…after their contact with these federal authorities (if you want to call them that), the mayor issued her now famous, “I want to give them ‘space’ to vent their anger” ad she declared an area where they could do so.

    Overnight those THUGS destroyed 114 cars, burned 18 businesses, and caused bodily harm to 10 policemen, some seriously.

    We are experiencing these outbreaks of civil disobeying of authority for ONE reason and ONE reason only…..

    Remember when Obama started his push for a federal police authority and disbandment of local police authority?…That is the reason…remember when Obama got his head organized, Al Sharpton, to start speaking out for a ‘federal police force’ and to abandon local authority as not prepared.

    If this ever happens in America, you can kiss tour freedoms and liberties ‘s goodbye. If this ever happens they will next come after our guns…..then it its all over and we will all be slaves to the FEDERAL/Communist government.

    …………when I look at Baltimore,Ferguson,New York etc. I see a hell of a lot of young blacks who are frittering their lives away,by getting involved in criminal activity,and/or drugs.
