“If the party could thrust its hand into the past and say
of this and that event, it never happened–that, surely,
was more terrifying than mere torture and death.”
“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.”
“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had
actually been destroyed. For how could you establish, even
the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside
your own memory?”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

Many of you following this blog are aware of my quoting “1984” by George Orwell and comparing our new age ushered in by the Obama camp of Orwellian lies and Orwellian manipulation of information, to the bleak world portrayed by Orwell.
The first article presented on this blog, on February 28, 2008, had a prophetic ring that resonates loudly now. Before starting this blog early in 2008, I had been a regular visitor on many blogs and forums and noticed a disturbing trend developing. There appeared to be an orchestrated attempt to paint the economy and the housing market in bleak terms. While this struck me at the time as interesting, looking back with the clarity of hindsight and knowledge of the schemes of the far left to manipulate and pull down our financial institutions, it makes much more sense.
February 28, 2008.
“George Orwell was a brilliant writer and prophet, but much of the “handwriting was on the wall” regarding the direction of society and thought control. He had witnessed the propaganda of the Nazi Regime and Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels was famous for saying, “If  you are going to tell a lie, tell a big one.” Of course the Nazis crafted the big lie putting the responsibility for all of Germany’s woes on the jews.”
“For many months I have been watching the misinformation campaign emanating from AOL, the television and print media about the declining housing market in the US and then the imminent recession. I have been warning people to seek the truth and to be on the lookout for agendas of profit and political gain. This also applies to the misinformation campaign concerning “global warming.” Follow the money.”

The first article here that mentioned Orwell and “1984” in the context of the Obama camp was on March 22, 2008. Orwell watched Nazi Germany play out and their repetition of big lies.
“We control life, Winston, at all its levels.  You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us.  But we create human nature.  Men are infinitely malleable.” 1984 by George Orwell.
“Lies and diversions. These are the hallmark of the liberal left.
Barack Obama’s speech about racism was a diversion. Yes, it was brilliant and eloquent, but so was Adolf Hitler. The German people wanted change. Change is not always good. Some people posting on this blog are attempting diversions as well. They speak of this white pastor and that white pastor. This is once again a diversion and rationalization. Everyone is accountable for their own actions. Some of these pastors said some really stupid things. However, Jeremiah Wright is spewing racist hate, anti semitism and hate for America. When I hear these other pastors spewing this level of hate and mentoring a presidential candidate for 20 years, then I will redirect my energies.”

One of the Orwellian Obama thugs, well know across the internet is smrstrauss. An article was presented here on February 12, 2010 revealing the Orwellian attempts at disinformation by smrstrauss.
“We have entered the world of “1984″ that George Orwell prophetically wrote about in 1948. Those paying attention know why I regularly quote Orwell. After watching those like Larry Sinclair and then myself being attacked for asking simple questions about Barack Obama, I knew that history was repeating and that is why I began referring to Nazi Germany analogies and quoting Orwell.
Three major aspects of Orwell’s world of “1984″ emerged.
Personal attacks.
Misinformation.
Internet scrubbing, changing history.
One of the hallmarks of the Obama campaign, the Obama camp, is diversions and disinformation. This blog has been bombarded with it’s share of attackers, diversionists and misinformation spinners. One of those was smrstrauss.
From Jefferson’s rebels, February 11, 2010.
“Expose: obot SMRSTRAUSS Finally Unmasked!”
“An individual using the tag smrstrauss has been an extraordinarily busy fellow and an annoying enigma on the internet since late 2008, but now his identity is known. Mr. smrstrauss has contributed countless hours, days, weeks, months, and thousands of comments to defend Barack Obama against everyone who questions the President’s eligibility. Smrstrauss sometimes writes long essay comments, and he often cites case law, so if you didn’t know better, you would be excused for thinking he’s an attorney. I can assure you he is not!””

Today, March 14, 2010, Jeffersons Rebels provided an update on smrstrauss.
“SMRSTRAUSS: The Total Reveal & Their Tangled Web”
“On February 11, 2010, I published Exposé: Obot SMRSTRAUSS Finally Unmasked!  My article revealed the prolific commenting activities of an obot who was (and still is) papering virtually every conservative blog with repetitive disinformation.  He is on a mission to defend Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States against those who argue that Obama isn’t qualified because of his dual citizenship with Britain and/or due to unanswered questions about Obama’s place of birth.
A simple Google search for comments made by, to, and about smrstrauss today returns around 20,000 hits.  In my first exposé, I did not reveal the full identity of smrstrauss, even though I knew who he was after extensive research.  However, since publishing that exposé, smrstrauss has visited my blog again with more “cognitive infiltration,” likely following the suggestions of Cass Sunstein, who now head’s Obama’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.  smrstrauss was warned that another post would force my hand, and that warning was ignored on March 12, 2010.  So, are you ready for the reveal?”
“Thanks to bloggers who responded to my call for help, I have collected a long list of ip addresses, all of which were linked to people using the moniker smrstrauss.  It wasn’t until February 2010 that I knew for certain that smrstrauss was, at the very least, working as a team with his wife.  Ann Strauss used multiple monikers and email addresses, such as:  ann1, annone, ann2, ann3, annfen@xxxxxx,  and annf@xxxxxx.  If you search the Huffington Post, you will find that ann1 has made a large number of comments since she joined in February 2008.  If you want to become one of her “fans”, you’ll first have to register.”
“If, as I believe, the Strauss’s are not working alone, then who might they be working with in Massachusetts since those ip addresses are dotted all over the state?  Well, some interesting coincidences may reveal the rest of the story.
First, Organizing for America has a Headquarters based in Boston.  Their address is 56 Roland Street, Suite 203, Boston, MA  02129.  What began as “Obama for America” during the election campaign then morphed into Organizing for America, which is also known as My.BarackObama.com
As we all too painfully know, the Obama administration is hell-bent on forcing universal health care on the American people even though we don’t subscribe to his statist vision.  If you followed the links above, you will realize just how intensely the Obama machine is focused on this agenda.  If you register for a group in your area, you will receive invitations to participate in training seminars.  Recently, blogger Carol Greenberg went undercover into one of the OFA training seminars, and came away with screen shots of their behind-the-scenes computer databases.  Carol’s article reveals that the Obama machine has a highly sophisticated system in place for training people how to manipulate and influence the public to the statist’s way of thinking, and to call people into action in one initiative or another.  This machine is nothing like we’ve seen before.  Other examples of the OFA’s handiwork include Radio.BarackObama.com as well as their National Intern Organizer Weekly Curriculum for high school students (i.e., creating Obama brownshirts–parents beware!).”

Orwellian lies, Obama camp brainwashing, Obama eligibility, Obama not natural born citizen, Mail Online, London, British Isles, 1984, George Orwell, Nazi Germany

“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”

 

This is a two part article. The first part deals with engineered and unintentinal brainwashing coming from the Orwellian Obama Camp. The second part is in response to an article produced by the London Mail Online, in the home of my ancestors. History does, indeed, repeat. I write this as a descendant of British citizens who left the tyranny of Europe, who as Americans saw through the BS of British tryanny. Now I am compelled, as my ancestors were, to sift through more BS coming from the British Isles. I quote their native son George Orwell in this endeavor.

Part 1: Obama Camp Orwellian mind control

George Orwell watched as the mind control schemes of Nazi Germany played out to insure the German people were compliant with their plans for world domination. Orwell used these techniques from Nazi Germany and other totalitarian regimes as a basis for “1984.” For example, from Joeseph Goebbels, the Nazi Propaganda Minister:

 “Not every item of news should be published: rather must
those who control news policies endeavor to make every item
of news serve a certain purpose.”

Next, from “1984.”

“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had
actually been destroyed. For how could you establish, even
the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside
your own memory?”

After watching the Obama camp early in 2008 control the Mainstream Media and attack people speaking out against Obama, including an orchestrated attack on this blog, it became apparent that we had entered the age of Big Brother written about by George Orwell. Many articles have been presented on this blog comparing the Obama camp and administration to the totalitarian regime of “1984.”

For the purpose of this article, I will concentrate on the eligibility issues surrounding Barack Obama. This one issue exemplifies how the Obama camp has expended enormous resources to shape public thought and masterfully divert attention away from the critical issue of Obama being a usurper, in direct conflict with the US Constitution.

One thing is crystal clear. The Obama camp has controlled the Mainstream Media from the beginning. There are many reason for this. It is a fact. This has been the principle means they have used to not cover important issues and to select the buzzwords and slogans to be used. Birther, fringe and other words have been selected to discredit and demean those speaking out against Obama. Also, another technique straight out of Nazi Germany and “1984” was employed. In Nazi Germany, the focus of hate was the Jews. In “1984” the “two minute hates” were directed at O’Brian, the supposed antagonist of Big Brother and the nation.

So we have the Obama camp continually broadcasting that anyone challenging Obama’s eligibility is a fringe birther, right wing extremist and as many of the so called elitists would portray as a sub human low intellect. That Orly Taitz is the leader of the birthers and that all court cases challenging Obama’s eligibility have been thrown out as having no merits. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Most people questioning Obama’s eligibility are normal, hard working Americans who follow the US Constitution as their legal compass. They are people like me who are well educated, well read and non racially motivated. They are current or retired military and some high ranking officers. There are a few in the MSM, such as Lou Dobbs who asked the common sense question of why doesn’t Obama simply provide a legitimate birth certificate.

Now for the questions that transcends all of the psycho babble and mind control. I have placed it as number 1 on the Internet Billboard because it is so simple and self evident.

“1. Barack Obama has employed a legion of private and government attorneys to prevent revealing his country of birth. Innocent and eligible persons seeking the office of president do not do that.”

The answer is obvious.

Part 2: What motivated the Mail Online to create or repeat lies?

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”…Joseph Goebbels

First of all, I want to thank the British press for covering aspects of Barack Obama untouched by the American MSM. I am certain it did not harm your readership.

Next, what was your motivation for covering an important story about Obama’s eligibility issues and including so much misinformation and lies? Perhaps you are proving my point with the quotes from Orwell and Goebbels serving as a spotlight.

  • Is this the result of pressure or remuneration from the Obama Camp ot those controlling the puppet strings?
  • Are you repeating the lie that has become the “truth”?
  • Or is this simply crass commercialism?
  • Or possibly all three above?

I will next respond to selected exerpts from your article, “Did Barack Obama lie about his birth to become President?”.

“To most Americans, of course, the very idea that anyone could cheat their way into the world’s most powerful post by rewriting their personal history sounds preposterous.

They dismiss the Birthers as a bunch of crackpot conspiracy theorists and closet racists who still cannot accept a black leader, even though Obama won the election by some 10 million votes.
Yet the number of people who believe this apparently outlandish theory is extraordinarily high, particularly in the southern states, where old racial divisions endure.

According to one recent opinion poll, an astonishing 53 per cent of southerners are either convinced their President really is a covert foreigner, or at least feel unsure about the matter. In more integrated parts of the country, the doubters remain a small minority.”

Citizen Wells response:

Life is full of ironies. I write this, a child of the British Isles, as I suppose you are. My English ancestors left the tyranny of Europe and settled in NC. They embraced their new found freedoms and easily saw through the BS being imposed on them by the British Government. My ancestor, John Wells, was a signer of the Tryon Resolves.

“The unprecedented, barbarous and bloody actions committed by British troops on our American brethren near Boston, on 19th April and 20th of May last, together with the hostile operations and treacherous designs now carrying on, by the tools of ministerial vengeance, for the subjugation of all British America, suggest to us the painful necessity of having recourse to arms in defense of our National freedom and constitutional rights, against all invasions; and at the same time do solemnly engage to take up arms and risk our lives and our fortunes in maintaining the freedom of our country whenever the wisdom and counsel of the Continental Congress or our Provincial Convention shall declare it necessary;”

Here is my point. We have some large cities in the south. However, passed from generation to generation, we have retained the inclination and ability to see throgh modern day BS and tyranny. Those of you in Great Britain have had 250 years to learn this. Is this clear? Except for a small percentage of the population, this is not about skin color. It is about Tyranny. Clear?

“After reading about the Birthers, he met the fringe group’s self-anointed leader, Orly Taitz, 47, a one-woman phenomenon who emigrated to America from the former Soviet Union (via Israel), speaks five languages, and is a qualified dentist with two practices, as well as being an attorney.”

Citizen Wells response:

Here we go again, “fringe group.” Orly Taitz is one of many attorneys involved in lawsuits challenging Obama’s eligibility and she is not the leader. This is a grassroots, US Consitutional issue.

 “Like every other such case, it was summarily dismissed on procedural grounds even before the evidence could be heard. However absurd such cases may be, Mr Sankey, who works for the group voluntarily and estimates having spent £40,000 of his own money following leads, is at pains to present himself as a level-headed former British bobby, motivated only by a determination to find the truth.”

Citizen Wells response:

Every case has not been dismissed.  “However absurd such cases may be,” leads one to believe that this article was influenced by the Obama camp.

“It is a sad irony, though, that so many Americans feel sufficiently dissatisfied by their first black President that they would rather put their trust in a British detective and his curious conspiracy theories.” 

Citizen Wells response:

The decline of the British Empire.

I will leave you with the following quote which perhaps conveys the message best:

MaoGangOf4

 

White House Communications Director, Thought Police monitor of Glenn Beck, Fox News and the American public, Anita Dunn, is a fan of Chairman Mao.

From a Glenn Beck Show transcript dated October 16, 2009:

“GLENN: At a Catholic high school giving a talk for graduating seniors. So this is a high school. Now, I want to preface this with, this was given to me at this time so I could expose it on the air. The media has not responded to this. The White House has. I’ll play that response for you. But the response to Jake Tapper from ABC, he asked Anita Dunn, what about this Marxist Mao stuff that you did? Her answer was, oh, I was just kidding.

PAT: Oh, boy.

GLENN: Listen to it, and you tell me if this sounds like she was kidding.

DUNN: But the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point, which is, you’re going to make choices. You’re going to challenge. You’re going to say, “Why not?” You’re going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before. But here’s the deal: These are your choices. They are no one else’s.

In 1947, when Mao Zedong was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over, Chiang Kai‑shek and the Nationalist Chinese held the cities, they had the army, they had the air force, they had everything on their side. And people said, “How can you win? How can you do this? How can you do this against all of the odds against you?” And Mao Zedong said, you know, “You fight your war, and I’ll fight mine.” And think about that for a second.”

Now that you know who Anita Dunn admires, this video of White House Communications Director Anita Dunn speaking to the Dominican government at a conference, will not surprise you. Listen carefully. Among Dunn’s statements, these two are also not a surprise and confirm what we already knew. The mainstream media is controlled by the Obama camp.
“We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter. So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it,”

 

“Whether it was a David Plouffe video or an Obama speech, a huge part of our press strategy was focused on making the media cover what Obama was actually saying as opposed to why the campaign was saying it, what the tactic was. … Making the press cover what we were saying.”

George Orwell, “1984”

I would like to thank the Washington Post for providing an
excellent example and the readers of this blog for alerting
me to this Orwellian example of revisionist history straight
out of “1984.”

If you have not read “1984” by George Orwell, our present
times and conditions make it a must read for survival.

Yesterday, the Citizen Wells blog presented a second article on
the arrest of 2 individuals in the Washington DC office
that was headed by Obama’s technology czar, Vivek Kundra, as
recently as a few days ago. This article came from a Washington
Post article dated March 13, 2009. Last night Citizen Wells
was notified that the Washington Post article had been changed.

After some investigating, it was discovered that the whole
nature of the article had been changed. Consider the
following:

The citizen Wells article dated March 13, 2009 revealed several
aspects of the Washington Post article that are potentially
damaging to Barack Obama.

“Obama Official Placed on Leave”

“Vivek Kundra, who was tapped as the White House technology czar
March 5, oversaw technology projects and budgets for 86 D.C.
government agencies as head of the District’s Office of the Chief
Technology Officer.”

“Yusuf Acar, 40, who has worked in the technology office since
2004, was charged with bribery, conspiracy, money laundering and
conflict of interest.”

“FBI agents carted away boxes and envelopes from the Office of
the Chief Technology Officer throughout the day.”

“Acar also told the informant that he could use computers to
create fake D.C. birth certificates, Hibarger said.”

“The scam began unraveling in March last year”

“The informant approached the FBI and began wearing a hidden
recording device and secretly recording phone conversations
involving Acar and Bansal.”

Here is the Washington Post article that has been completely
rewritten. It is located at the same link in the Citizen Wells
article dated March 13, 2009. Notice that the header has nothing
about Obama:

“D.C. Technology Office Scandal Revives Questions of Cronyism
 

By David Nakamura
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, March 14, 2009; Page B01

Last summer, Vivek Kundra, then the D.C. government’s chief technology officer, introduced a massive overhaul of the way

his agency hired about 300 consultants.
Responding to vendors’ complaints that the contracting process was unfair and rife with cronyism, Kundra received $75

million from the D.C. Council to create the Information Technology Staff Augmentation program to foster greater

transparency and accountability. Kundra hired a company to help the city weed out unqualified résumés, established a

central online database to advertise contracts and disclose who won each one, and posted video solicitations for jobs

online. The ITSA program, he told council members during an oversight hearing in August, was a more open and more fair

way of doing business in the District.

But this week, the technology agency was rocked by a bribery scandal that brought the allegations of cronyism back into

full view and raised questions among consultants about whether anything has changed. Federal authorities have alleged

that Yusuf Acar, a manager in charge of information security, conspired with a contractor named Sushil Bansal to bilk

the city of money in a scheme that involved “ghost” workers and kickbacks. Both men have been arrested.
 
Questions submitted to Mayor Adrian M. Fenty’s office about the technology office’s contracting process, including

whether the hiring decisions by project managers were reviewed by higher-ranking authorities, were not answered

yesterday. Kundra, who left the technology office last month after President Obama appointed him the nation’s chief

information officer, has not been identified as a suspect in the D.C. case. He has been placed on administrative leave

pending the outcome of the federal investigation and declined to comment.

“We have to find the right balance and find the right checks and balances,” said council member Mary M. Cheh (D-Ward 3),

who recently took over the committee that oversees the technology office.

City Administrator Dan Tangherlini said the scheme that Acar and Bansal are accused of running predates the

implementation of ITSA in October.

Consultants who work with the technology office said yesterday that the bribery allegations emphasize their long-

standing complaints that the agency lacks sufficient oversight to ensure that contracts are awarded fairly. They

described a system in which project managers have virtually unabridged authority to issue “purchase orders” for

consultants and then decide which ones receive the contracts.

Furthermore, they said, some managers making the hiring decisions used to work for the consulting companies that are

making bids, and some of the consultants once worked as full-time city employees. Bansal worked for the city before

founding Advanced Integrated Technologies about six years ago.

“How can we even trust these people anymore?” asked Laurie Collins, owner of a small information technology consulting

firm that has worked with the city. Collins and other consultants complained that a group of fewer than 10 firms win a

disproportionate bulk of contracts, even though the city has 97 registered technology vendors.

Bansal’s firm won 14 of the 167 contracts, including two awarded by Acar, issued through ITSA so far.

Under ITSA, the city hired Optimal Solutions and Technologies to oversee the contracting process. That company set up a

Web site to post job openings and solicit résumés. The résumés of qualified candidates are then sent to D.C. project

managers without company affiliations, a tactic aimed at trying to eliminate potential company biases from the managers

making the hiring decisions.

But consultants said it is easy for vendors to sidestep that safeguard by telling the managers ahead of time which

résumés to look for.
Tim Booker, owner of the consulting firm MindFinders, said managers have developed close relationships with specific

vendors and are hesitant or unwilling to award contracts to other firms. Because of that, it is difficult for the city

to ensure that it gets the best value and services for each contract.
“Managers are not willing to break old habits,” he said. “What it requires is leadership and training and oversight.”

Under their alleged scheme, Acar approved contracts for Bansal’s company for the purchase of goods and services. But

Bansal billed the city for some services that were not provided and workers who did not exist, splitting the proceeds

with Acar, according to the affidavit. Bansal’s company has received $13 million in city contracts, including some from

other managers in the technology office and at least one other city agency.

Michael Master, owner of the consulting firm GiniCorp, opposed the implementation of the ITSA program last summer during

a D.C. Council hearing. But yesterday, he said he did not blame the system for failing to stop Acar and Bansal.
“There’s a longtime culture of bending the rules in this city,” Master said. “Whether the process is transparent or not,

which the whole ITSA thing was supposed to be, you can put in all the rules and laws, but bad people will always find a

way to get around it. This just proves that.”

Staff writer Nikita Stewart contributed to this report.”

Orwell Diaries, George Orwell, 1984, Animal Farm, Thought Police, Doublespeak, orwelldiaries.wordpress.com

I recently came across an interesting blog, Orwell Diaries. The site chronicles George Orwell’s diary entries 70 years ago to the date. George Orwell is one of my favorite writers and I quote his book “1984” regularly. Orwell’s vision of a society where all the information available is controlled and history rewritten, resonates with many today. The Barack Obama Campaign is the living embodiment of “1984.” George Orwell also wrote “Animal Farm”, a satire of Soviet socialism.

Here is an exerpt from the about page of the blog:

“The Orwell Prize, Britain’s pre-eminent prize for political writing, is publishing George Orwell’s diaries as a blog. From 9th August 2008, Orwell’s domestic and political diaries (from 9th August 1938 until October 1942) will be posted in real-time, exactly 70 years after the entries were written.

Orwell’s ‘domestic’ diaries begin on 9th August 1938/2008; his ‘political’ diaries (which are further categorised as ‘Morocco’, ‘Pre-war’ and ‘Wartime’) begin on 7th September 1938/2008.

The diaries are exactly as Orwell wrote them. Where there are original spelling errors, they are indicated by a ° following the offending word.”

Larry Sinclair story, allegations, Obama Campaign controls press, David Axelrod, news suppression, George Orwell, doublespeak, MSM failure, Adams, Hearst, Brandeis, Einstein, Goebbels, Hitler, Jefferson, Orwell, Sinclair

“Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry
and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.”    
…. John Adams

“To be honest with you, it’s not so much whether you believe me or not, as much as you hear me.”

…. Larry Sinclair

The mainstream media has failed to do their job and will be held
accountable. Aside from a few notable exceptions such as ABC News
during the PA debate, Tim Russert and the Chicago Tribune, Barack
Obama has been given a free ride by the press. The Democrat
Party, David Axelrod and major monetary players in this country
and the Middle East have flexed their political muscles to
censor the truth about Obama. Phony news organizations like
CNN were never expected to report the truth. Fox News has
become an entertainment network and has been a disappointment.

The internet has increasingly become the primary news source
for many. Sadly, the Obama Campaign and Obama supporters have
aligned to attempt distortion and removal of news on the web.
Tampering with the truth and biased reporting are not a modern
day device. Accurate reporting has been a concern in this
country going back to the American Revolution.

Why has the MSM ignored or prejudged the Larry Sinclair
allegations? There are many reasons, but consider the
following:

Prosecutors routinely use convicted or known criminals to
prosecute other criminals.

Stuart Levine, an admitted heavy drug user and associate of
many crime and corruption figures in Illinois, was compelled
to testify after being wiretapped. His testimony helped
convict Tony Rezko and indict others.

Obama has admitted to drug use. He has a long list of associations
with crime and corruption figures in Illinois.

Larry Sinclair has admitted to prior drug use and brushes
with the law.

Larry Sinclair came forth on his own with his allegations.

A tremendous amount of resources have been expended attempting
to discredit Sinclair.

The Rezko trial and connections to Obama has been not reported
or under reported. It is no wonder that the Larry Sinclair
allegations have not been reported.

Consider the following quotes and ask why the MSM is not doing
their job:

“Please realize that the first duty of newspaper men is
to get the news and print the news.”
…. William Randolph Hearst

“The function of the press is very high. It is almost Holy.
It ought to serve as a forum for the people, through which
the people may know freely what is going on. To misstate or
suppress the news is a breach of trust.”
…. Louis D. Brandeis

“The (American) press, which is mostly controlled by vested
interests, has an excessive influence on public opinion.”
…. Albert Einstein

“Not every item of news should be published: rather must
those who control news policies endeavor to make every item
of news serve a certain purpose.”
…. Joseph Goebbels

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

“Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper.
Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that
polluted vehicle.”
…. Thomas Jefferson

“The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon.
And since the party is in full control of all records, and in
equally full control of the minds of it’s members, it follows
that the past is whatever the party chooses to make it. Six
means eighteen, two plus two equals five, war is peace,
freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.”
…. George Orwell

“When you pick up your morning or evening newspaper and think
you are reading the news of the world, what you are reading
is a propaganda which has been selected, revised, and doctored
by some power which has a financial interest in you.”
…. Upton Sinclair

We all know why the Larry Sinclair story is not being covered
by the MSM. The great minds above understood.

 

Barack Obama, Jeremiah Wright, lies, racism, anti semitism, hate America, entitlement, health care, poor housing, African Americans tortured

“We control life, Winston, at all its levels.  You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us.  But we create human nature.  Men are infinitely malleable.” 1984 by George Orwell.
“Do not hate your brother in your heart.” Leviticus 19:17
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
I will present the truth and facts to you. Not white truth, not black truth, not green truth. Just the truth. If I discover an error by myself or others, I will correct it.

There are no white people or black people. Hold your hand next to a white sheet and black sheet of paper. There is only one race of people, the human race. Some of my best friends have skin color that is darker or lighter than my own. I am in their homes, they are in mine. Some of these people have spent days to a year in my home.

Slavery is a great evil. It is not a white skinned or black
skinned issue. Slavery, racism and bigotry are about taking
advantage of other people. This can become widespread due to conquest, laws and ignorance.
Slavery was wrong when light skinned people owned darker skinned people in America.
Slavery was wrong when American Indians owned darker skinned people in America.
Slavery was wrong when dark skinned people owned dark skinned people in America.
Slavery was wrong when Africans sold and owned dark skinned people in Africa.
Slavery was wrong when Vikings sold and owned people in Europe.
Slavery was wrong when Romans sold and owned people in Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa.
Slavery was wrong when Egyptians sold and owned people in the Middle East and Africa.
Slavery was wrong when Middle Easterners sold and owned people in the Middle East and Africa.
Slavery was wrong when ancient Europeans sold and owned people in Europe.
Slavery was wrong when ancient peoples of the Americas sold and owned people.

Slavery has not existed in the United States for well over a hundred years. Slavery did not begin here. It was too slow in being eradicated but it was ended. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln grew up in an era of slavery, racism and bigotry. The information they were “programmed” with led them to believe that blacks were inferior. They were products of their environment. Despite the misinformation they were given, they slowly came to the realization that what they had believed about blacks was wrong.
This is one of the reasons that what pastor Jeremiah Wright
is preaching is important. Most importantly, he is enfluencing
his parishioners, especially the children. He has also had an
impact on Barack Obama, who is running for president of the US. This is not a casual relationship. Jeremiah Wright has been consistently referred to as a mentor to Barack Obama. Don’t even begin to question the above. I am very well educated and studied quite a bit of history.

Next to statements regarding entitlement and what the US government owes it’s citizens. What the federal government is responsible for is quite simple. Here are the primary responsibilities: Defense, law legislation, Supreme Court decisions, federal banking and interstate commerce. The President of the United States has the primary job of Commander in Chief. Once again national defense.

Accountability is lacking in modern day society. Why do modern day Americans have a sense of entitlement. That is, the government owes them affordable housing, free health care, educations, etc. There are three main reasons for this. The modern day Democratic Party that get votes by promising hand outs from the government,
demagogues that gain from manipulating the masses and human greed.

Here is a good example of this lack of accountability from a
recent post on this blog:

“While it is clear that a disproportionate number of African Americans are tortured by inadequate health care; poor housing, inadequate educations, abusive criminal justice, unemployment and high crime, much of this today is because they live in poverty. And in the global capitalism of today these conditions now exist for countless numbers of other Americans, white, Asian, Latino and others.”

The word torture is used again. This is a common ploy of the liberal left. Once again, there is a lack of personal accountability. The reason many of these people are in poverty is due to a lack of personal accountability and the notion that they are owed everything. Much of this comes from the modern day Democrats and demagogues.
Just look around at all the people that come to the US knowing full well of the opportunity here. All they have to do is work hard and they do, and often turn their lives around in one generation.

One of the other great lies being told is about George W Bush
and the Iraq War. George Bush did not lie about the Iraq War. There are two posts on this blog concerning the tone of the country and the situation in Iraq prior to the war. 10 quotes were provided about Iraq and Saddam Hussein, yet people have short memories and many have an agenda of propagating lies. All of the quotes came from the Clinton Administration and substantiate what George W Bush acted upon.

Lies and diversions. These are the hallmark of the liberal left.
Barack Obama’s speech about racism was a diversion. Yes, it was brilliant and eloquent, but so was Adolf Hitler. The German people wanted change. Change is not always good. Some people posting on this blog are attempting diversions as well. They speak of this white pastor and that white pastor. This is once again a diversion and rationalization. Everyone is accountable for their own actions. Some of these pastors said some really stupid things. However, Jeremiah Wright is spewing racist hate, anti semitism and hate for America. When I hear these other pastors spewing this level
of hate and mentoring a presidential candidate for 20 years, then I will redirect my energies.
 
So, why am I and many others focusing attention on Barack Obama, Jeremiah Wright and others they associated with. Many red flags were raised by the hate speeches of pastor Wright, his mentoring of Barack Obama for 20 years, ties to Saddam Hussein, other suspicious middle eastern and African ties and ties to criminal elements. There were red flags in Germany prior to the rise of Adolf Hitler. The people chose to ignore them. They were swept up in the euphoria of the moment with a promise of change. Even though then, as now, words of racism, anti semitism and hate were being used,
it was somebody else that was responsible for their problems. This is too important to characterize as a blacks versus whites issue. We are all Americans and we need to make an informed decision.

Obama wins Texas primary, Barack Obama wins more Texas delegates, Hillary loses Texas

Initial estimates indicate that Barack Obama has won the democratic primary in Texas. A combination of the popular vote and Texas caucus gives Obama 99 delegates to Clinton’s 94. The official results will be announced by the Texas Secretary of State on March 29 2008.

What have you been hearing from most of the media for days? That Hillary won Texas and Ohio, when she never had Texas firmly in her grasp. We have also been bombarded by the big lie that Hillary gained on Obama from those primaries when in fact she lost 15 delegates to Obama.

Folks, keep referring to 1984 by George Orwell, remember that doublespeak is alive and well and please read “Rewriting History” by Dick Morris.

Bush impeachment, Arrest, Iraq war, 1984, George Orwell, Minnesota, Liberal Democrats

I just received this comment from someone that is apparently associated with Minneapolis Minnesota and many left wing liberal groups. They actively promote ideas of impeaching President Bush, arresting Bush and that the president’s administration is involved in illegal activities such as wiretapping and torture. I would expect this kind of thought process in Minnesota just as I would in Vermont. Maybe the cold weather and indoor life affects their brains.

I went to one of their websites, and after scanning through their ridiculous comments, I came to the bottom where this appeared:
“I just want you to know that,
when we talk about war, we’re really talking about peace.”
-Bush, June 18, 2002

“War is Peace”
-Big Brother in George Orwell’s 1984

The real irony of this is that the democratic party, especially the left wing liberal segment, uses the tactics of Big Brother regularly. They constantly tell lies and distortions of truth that become reality to their cohorts. They are masters of doublespeak. Let’s address torture. The Iraq war is much more analogous to World war II than the Vietnam conflict. Real torture took place in World War II. The Japanese were masters of inflicting pain. Don’t whine to me about water boarding, you spineless wimps. World War II veterans are dying daily all around us. You insult them with your comments. If any of you have any thoughts of aggression toward President Bush, I suggest you come to NC, where the majority of the population will help you see the error of your way.

Here is the comment that was posted in it’s entirety:

Resolution on Impeachment of Bush and Cheney Whereas George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney: 1. deliberately misled the nation and doctored intelligence, as described in the Downing Street minutes, http://www.downingstreetmemo.com/memos.html about the threat from Iraq in order to justify a war of aggression and an occupation of Iraq, as further described in House resolution H. Res. 333 http://kucinich.house.gov/UploadedFiles/int3.pdfand as listed in House Resolution H. Res. 635 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=hr109-635 2. committed crimes against peace by initiating war against Iraq in violation of the UN Charter http://www.worldpress.org/specials/iraq/; 3. committed crimes against humanity in their conduct of the occupation of Iraq in which they killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians and created millions of refugees http://www.guardian.co.uk/Iraq/Story/0,,1892888,00.html and http://edition.cnn.com/2 006/WORLD/meast/10/13/iraq.main/index.html; 4. killed over 3700 American soldiers and severely wounded nearly 30,000 more in the pursuit of an illegal, immoral, and unjust occupation of Iraq. While Bush and Cheney have stated no truthful noble cause for the war, one of the central purposes appears to be to take control of Iraq’s immense oil reserves to financially benefit private corporate interests. See Bush’s benchmark listing fact sheet released the same day Bush announced the “surge” that expressly called on the Iraq parliament to “enact hydrocarbons law to promote investment . . . ” http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/01/20070110-3.html and http://www.alternet.org/waroniraq/56672/; 5. committed further crimes against peace by threatening Iran in violation of the UN Charter, as described in House resolution H. Res. 333 http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi- bin/query/z?c110:H.RES.333: and http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/6649053.stm; 6. detained thousands of prisoners without charges and without providing the ability to confront their accusers at a fair trial http://thereport.amnesty.org/eng/Regions/Americas/United-States-of- America; 7. condoned the torture of prisoners in violation of the Geneva Conventions, the US anti-torture statute of 1994, the US War Crimes Act of 1996, and the oath of office http://hrw.org/english/docs/2004/05/24/usint8614.htm and http://thereport.amnesty.org/eng/Regions/Americas/United-States-of-America and http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/03/24/bush_shuns_patriot_act_requirement/. Bush’s refusal to faithfully execute the laws prohibiting torture and his declaration on February 7, 2002 that the Geneva Conventions did not apply to prisoners in Afghanistan and in Guantanamoset the stage for torture there http://hrw.org/reports/2004/usa0604/2.htm. The Rumsfeld approved Guantanamo torture techniques were then imported to Iraq in August 2003, where the International Committee of the Red Cross found “systemic” mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners in several facilities and where the Schlesinger Report confirmed in August 2004 that abuses were “widespread” and “serious both in number and in effect,” and that there is both “institutional and personal responsibility at higher levels;”

8. approved at least two different illegal electronic surveillance programs of American citizens without a warrant in violation of the fourth amendment and in violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, and repeatedly lied to the American people by stating that no surveillance was taking place without a court order. The first program includes intercepting phone and email conversations without warrants and was exposed by the NY Times on December 16, 2005 http://emoglen.law.columbia.edu/CPC/NYT_15cnd-program.html. After that programwas exposed Bush said the program was carefully targeted to just include international calls and suspected members of Al Qaeda. Then, the second program was exposed by USA Today on May 11, 2006. It provides a wholesale attack on the fourth amendment by recording call identification information of tens of millions of purely domestic calls as well as international calls http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2006-05-10-nsa_x.htm; 9. attacked basic human rights protections in the constitution including habeas corpus, fifth amendment freedom from loss of life, liberty and property without due process of law, eighth amendment freedom from cruel and unusual punishment, and fourth amendment freedom fromunreasonable search and seizure; 10. attacked the separation of powers in an effort to consolidate power in the executive; 11. attacked the messenger who revealed that Bush “twisted” intelligence “to exaggerate the Iraqithreat.” Just as Nixon retaliated against former Pentagon analyst Daniel Ellsberg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Ellsberg, according to papers filed in court by special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in April 2006, there was “concerted action” by “multiple people in the White House” to “discredit, punish or seek revenge against” former Ambassador Joseph Wilson for his July 6, 2003 NY Times op ed piece http://www.nytimes.com/2003/07/06/opinion/06WILS.html?ex=1372824000&en=6c6aeb1ce960dec0&ei=5007 that ripped the cover off of Bush’s false assertions in his 2003 state of the union address that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from Africa for building a nuclear bomb. In retaliation, and to silence other would-be critics, the White House collected information about Wilson and disclosed to reporters that his wife, Valerie Plame, was a covert agent in the CIA counterinsurgency division, putting her life, and the lives of her contacts, at risk in violation of a US law protecting intelligence personnel (The Impeachment of George W. Bush, by Elizabeth Holtzman); 12. as the sole person under the Federal Stafford Act with responsibility and authority to issue emergency orders to mobilize the military and any federal resources needed to aid and assist in a disaster (see Failure of Initiative, February 2006 report of the House Select Bipartisan Committee to investigate the Preparations for and the Response to Hurricane Katrina http://katrina.house.gov/), Bush failed to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, violated the public trust, and demonstrated reckless and inexcusable indifference to human life before, during and after Hurricane Katrina. Bush knew but did not act until too late, and then he lied about it on national TV. Footage and transcripts from briefings Aug. 25-31 demonstrate that Bush was personally told well in advance of the “unprecedented strength” of the hurricane, the “devastating damage expected,” and that “water shortages will make human suffering incredible,” according to highly accurate predictions by the National Weather Service. The Associated Press reported that “in dramatic and sometimes agonizing terms, federal disaster officials warned President Bush and his homeland security chief before Hurricane Katrina struck that the storm could breach levees, put lives at risk in New Orleans’ Superdome and overwhelmrescuers, according to confidential video footage,” http://www.truthout.org/cgi- bin/artman/exec/view.cgi/47/18079. Yet Bush failed to muster resources to evacuate residents in advance and failed to assist New Orleans residents after Hurricane Katrina hit. Then three days

later Bush told Good Morning America, “I don’t think that anybody anticipated a breach of the levees.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp- dyn/content/article/2006/03/02/AR2006030202130.html In years before the storm Bush demonstrated inexcusable criminal negligence and violated the public trust by cutting the budget for hurricane defense, though the high probability of the breaching of the levees and the enormous risk to human life from a major hurricane hitting New Orleans were predicted and well known for years before the hurricane hit http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/09/03/katrina.chertoff/index.html; 13. failed to take care that the laws be faithfully executed by issuing signing statements that claim the authority to disobey laws based on the president’s own interpretation of their constitutionality, and then by taking action in violation of these laws, including the US law making torture a crime, laws regarding Congressional oversight that require providing information to Congress, laws regarding domestic spying, laws regarding civil liberties, and laws strengthening whistle blower protection, thereby expanding the president’s own power by stepping into the legislative and judicial functions at the expense of Congress and the courts, upsetting the balance among the three branches of government, and moving us away fromthe rule of law toward vastly increased executive power; http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/04/30/bush_challenges_hundreds_of_l aws/ and http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/03/24/bush_shuns_patriot_act_requirement/; 14. converted the Justice Department into an arm of the Republican Party by firing meritorious federal prosecutors who refused to base decisions on whom to prosecute on political considerations–to help Republicans win election, an offense James Madison discussed in a speech to the Senate on June 17, 1789, in which Madison said, ” The danger then consists merely in this, the president can displace from office a man whose merits require that he should be continued in it. What will be the motives which the president can feel for such abuse of his power, and the restraints that operate to prevent it? In the first place, he will be impeachable by this house, before the senate, for such an act of mal-administration; for I contend that the wanton removal of meritorious officers would subject him to impeachment and removal from his own hightrust.” http://www.gwu.edu/ffcp/mep/displaydoc.cfm?docid=fc11904http://www.commondreams.org/archive/2007/03/27/113/print/; 15. condoned criminal conduct and obstructed justice by commuting the sentence of convicted perjurer Scooter Libby to keep him silent and to demonstrate that Bush and Cheney will not allow high officials in the administration to be held accountable for their criminal acts;16. obstructed congressional investigations of these and other acts by the administration by defying subpoenas from Senate and House committees seeking documents and testimony under oath by administration officials and former administration officials; and Whereas the constitution requires the president to take the following oath of office: “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States;” and Whereas the constitution provides that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed;” and
Page 4
Whereas the constitution mandates that “the President, Vice President and all civil Officers ofthe United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors;” and Whereas impeachment was so important to our founding fathers that it is mentioned six times in five different sections of the constitution; and Whereas George Mason, a primary author of the Constitution, said that impeachment was the single most important part of the entire document. “Shall any man be above Justice? Above all shall that man be above it who can commit the most extensive injustice?” http://gunstonhall.org/georgemason/constitution.html July 20, 1787; and Whereas “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is a term of art that means a serious abuse of power, whether or not it is also a crime, that endangers our constitutional system of government, or an abuse of public trust. (See Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment: Report of the House Judiciary Committee, 1974, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/clinton/stories/watergatedoc_3.htm, articles by Elizabeth Holzman who served on the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment hearings of Richard Nixon in 1974 http://www.thenation.com/doc/20060130/holtzman; and http://www.thenation.com/docprint.mhtml?i=20070212&s=holtzman, and the book, The Impeachment of George W. Bush, by Elizabeth Holtzman) Whereas each of the above listed acts meets or exceeds that standard; andWhereas impeachment is the only constitutional method to protect Americans from a president intent on abusing power, violating the constitution, violating the laws, and breaching public trust; and Whereas Bush and Cheney threaten further crimes, including launching a war of aggression against Iran, and whereas sufficient time remains in their term of office for them to commit thosecrimes so allowing either or both of them to remain in office for that remaining time will facilitate these crimes, and whereas pretexts for attacking Iran have been issued, as described by a former CIA Middle East field officer and current Time Magazine columnist http://www.time.com/time/printout/0,8816,1654188,00.html; and Whereas failing to hold Bush and Cheney accountable not only condones their crimes but facilitates a future president committing similar or greater crimes; and Whereas members of Congress swear an oath to “support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” and no part of this oath permits exception for partisan advantage, the next election, political expediency, whether it is distracting from other issues, or how much time they have left in office; and Whereas failure by Congress to initiate the one remedy–impeachment–provided by our founding fathers to protect the constitution from such serious abuses has put that constitution, the rule of law, civil liberties, our democratic form of government, the separation of powers, the lives of our men and women in uniform, and the lives of countless civilians at severe risk; and Whereas citizen pressure led the Vermont State Senate and 87 cities and towns around the nation to pass impeachment resolutions; and
Page 5
Whereas a poll conducted by http://www.americanresearchgroup.com on July 5, 2007 found that 54% of American adults want the US House of Representatives to begin impeachmentproceedings against Vice President Dick Cheney while only 40% oppose, and whereas the poll also found that 45% are in favor of the same thing for President George W. Bush while 46% oppose; and Whereas in view Congress’ ongoing complicity with the war, the torture, the lies, the warrantless wiretapping, and the imprisonment without trial, and its failure to protect rights and civil liberties, it is up to the people themselves to defend the constitution and our civil liberties by building larger grassroots movements, including a movement for impeachment; Therefore be it resolved that the National Lawyers Guild calls upon the U.S. House of Representatives to immediately initiate impeachment proceedings, to investigate the charges, andif the investigation supports the charges, to vote to impeach George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney as provided in the Constitution of the United States of America; and Be it further resolved that the National Lawyers Guild will establish an NLG Impeachment Committee open to all members to coordinate action by the NLG in support of impeachment, to work with national and grassroots impeachment organizations, and to provide legal assistance for those efforts to strengthen the national campaign for impeachment; and Be it further resolved that the NLG Impeachment Committee will help organize and coordinate events at the local, state, and national level to build public participation in the campaign to initiate impeachment investigation, impeachment, and removal of Bush and Cheney from office without further delay; and Be it further resolved that the National Lawyers Guild calls on NLG members to ask their respective member of Congress to support H. Res. 333 to impeach Cheney and to introduce or support other impeachment resolutions; and Be it further resolved that the National Lawyers Guild calls on all other state and national bar associations, state and local government bodies, community organizations, labor unions, and all other citizen associations to adopt similar resolutions and to use all their resources to build the campaign demanding that Congress initiate impeachment investigation, impeach, and remove Bush and Cheney from office without further delay; and Be it further resolved that the National Lawyers Guild will forward a copy of this resolution to the Speaker and the Clerk of the US House of Representatives, to Representative John Conyers, Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, to the various state and federal bar associations, to other peace and justice organizations, and to the news media. Implementation: By the NLG Impeachment Committee established by this resolution, by interested local chapters, and by national officers.

Mar 7, 2:44 AM — Brattleboro VT, Bush Cheney impeachment, indictment, arrest, Vermont, provide proof

1984, 2008, Big Brother, Housing Market, Recession, Thought Police, AOL, Charlotte Observer, NY Times

George Orwell was a brilliant writer and prophet, but much of the “handwriting was on the wall” regarding the direction of society and thought control. He had witnessed the propaganda of the Nazi Regime and Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels was famous for saying, “If  you are going to tell a lie, tell a big one.” Of course the Nazis crafted the big lie putting the responsibility for all of Germany’s woes on the jews.

In “1984”, Orwell portrays life in a society where all citizens are constantly told what to think and do. Every home has a screen that broadcasts production and war news and also instructions on how to live and what to think. The slight difference in that society was that each person was being monitored visually and auditorily. If you stop and think about it, we have been told for many years what to wear, how to act and what to think by television commercials and political parties. We now have computer screens doing the same thing through vehicles like AOL, etc.

For many months I have been watching the misinformation campaign emanating from AOL, the television and print media about the declining housing market in the US and then the imminent recession. I have been warning people to seek the truth and to be on the lookout for agendas of profit and political gain. This also applies to the misinformation campaign concerning “global warming.” Follow the money.

I urge everyone to revisit “1984” by George Orwell and ponder the influence on our lives from modern day purveyors of words. If you are unsure of this, just think about the products you buy or decisions you are currently making about housing, voting or other purchases.

Just today, in the Charlotte Observer, their doom campaign manifested itself again with misinformation about the economy. On the front page they are trying to correlate the relationship between food stamps in Mecklenburg County and the state of the economy. They use the “expert” word to imply that a recession is imminent. Here is an exerpt from the “experts” at the Charlotte Observer:

“Escalating food stamp requests is one sign that a recession is imminent, experts say.

Our office is the first indicator that the economy is headed south, said Peggy McCoy, economic services director for the Mecklenburg Department of Social Services.”

First of all, these people are not qualified to make this statement. Secondly, it is based on faulty data that does not account for the rapid general growth in Mecklenburg County and specifically the rapid growth in the illegal alien population. But what the heck, the facts have never gotten in the way of journalists and their agenda before. Consider the NY Times recent attempt to smear the reputation of a good man, John McCain.

Here are some excerpts from “1984”, however I urge you, your children, family and friends to read the book.

“Winston dialed “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.”
“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week.  Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours?  Yes, they swallowed it.  Parsons swallowed it easily, with the stupidity of an animal.”
“We control life, Winston, at all its levels.  You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us.  But we create human nature.  Men are infinitely malleable.  Or perhaps you have returned to your old idea that the proletarians or the slaves will arise and overthrow us.  Put it out of your mind.  They are helpless, like the animals.  Humanity is the Party.  The others are outside – irrelevant.
