George Orwell birthday, 1984 author, Animal Farm, Big Brother, Thought police, Newspeak, Orwellian, Mainstream media nemesis

“All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”…George Orwell, “Animal Farm”
“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″

Today, June 25, 2011 is George Orwell’s birthday.

One of the highest honors I ever received was when the Post & Email placed the photo of George Orwell in the article they did on the Citizen Wells blog on May 25, 2010. I am also honored to present the following on George Orwell and 1984.

From The Complete works of George Orwell.

“Eric Blair was born in 1903 in Motihari, Bengal, in the then British colony of India, where his father, Richard, worked for the Opium Department of the Civil Service. His mother, Ida, brought him to England at the age of one. He did not see his father again until 1907, when Richard visited England for three months before leaving again until 1912. Eric had an older sister named Marjorie and a younger sister named Avril. With his characteristic humour, he would later describe his family’s background as “lower-upper-middle class.” ”

“In 1944 Orwell finished his anti-Stalinist allegory Animal Farm, which was published the following year with great critical and popular success. The royalties from Animal Farm provided Orwell with a comfortable income for the first time in his adult life. From 1945 Orwell was the Observer’s war correspondent and later contributed regularly to the Manchester Evening News. He was a close friend of the Observer’s editor/owner, David Astor and his ideas had a strong influence on Astor’s editorial policies. In 1949 his best-known work, the dystopian Nineteen Eighty-Four, was published. He wrote the novel during his stay on the island of Jura, off the coast of Scotland.”

“During most of his career Orwell was best known for his journalism, both in the British press and in books of reportage such as Homage to Catalonia (describing his experiences during the Spanish Civil War), Down and Out in Paris and London (describing a period of poverty in these cities), and The Road to Wigan Pier (which described the living conditions of poor miners in northern England). According to Newsweek, Orwell “was the finest journalist of his day and the foremost architect of the English essay since Hazlitt.”

Contemporary readers are more often introduced to Orwell as a novelist, particularly through his enormously successful titles Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. The former is considered an allegory of the corruption of the socialist ideals of the Russian Revolution by Stalinism, and the latter is Orwell’s prophetic vision of the results of totalitarianism. Orwell denied that Animal Farm was a reference to Stalinism. Orwell had returned from Catalonia a staunch anti-Stalinist and anti-Communist, but he remained to the end a man of the left and, in his own words, a ‘democratic socialist’.

Orwell is also known for his insights about the political implications of the use of language. In the essay “Politics and the English Language”, he decries the effects of cliche, bureaucratic euphemism, and academic jargon on literary styles, and ultimately on thought itself. Orwell’s concern over the power of language to shape reality is also reflected in his invention of Newspeak, the official language of the imaginary country of Oceania in his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. Newspeak is a variant of English in which vocabulary is strictly limited by government fiat. The goal is to make it increasingly difficult to express ideas that contradict the official line – with the final aim of making it impossible even to conceive such ideas. (cf. Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis). A number of words and phrases that Orwell coined in Nineteen Eighty-Four have entered the standard vocabularly, such as “memory hole,” “Big Brother,” “Room 101,” “doublethink,” “thought police,” and “newspeak.” ”

Some of my favorite “1984” quotes.

“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?”

“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.”

“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.”

“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 soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any partiucular 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 it’s stead. This process of continuation 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 be correct; nor was any item of news, or expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to be on record.”

“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.”

Thank God for the life of George Orwell.

Obama Administration 1984 regime, George Orwell described Obama camp, Thought police, Anita Dunn, David Axelrod, Rahm Emmanuel, Revisionist history, Attacks, Fox News, Citizen Wells open thread, October 27, 2009

This is the open thread for Tuesday, October 27, 2009. The theme is “1984” by George Orwell and how the Obama camp and the Obama Administration resemble the totalitarian regime described by Orwell. Daily, in conversations with my friends, almost without fail, someone states that we are living “1984.” I am working on an article on Tort Reform, another of the big lies being spoken about by the likes of Harry Reid. Even though tort reform is not listed below, consider it a victim of Orwellian lies.

Below are some of my favorite references to “1984” from the Citizen Wells blog.

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.”

Obama Montana town hall meeting, Obama lies, Update August 18, 2009, Obama thugs, SEIU, Big brother, Thought police, 1984

In another episode of “town hall meetings”, this time focusing the hate on insurance companies instead of the Jews in Nazi Germany or O’Brien in “1984” by George Orwell, modern day Big Brother, Obama, is utilizing the SEIU thugs as part of his Thought Police.

” Obama Gets The Facts Wrong At Montana Town Hall And Adds To Misinformation
By Tom White, on August 15th, 2009, at 10:23 am”

President Obama says there is a lot of misinformation out there, and he is correct. Most of it is coming from his own mouth. In fact, he has so mangled the truth that most experts say his credibility on Health Care is shot. During Friday’s Town Hall meeting in Belgrade, Montana Obama proved by his numerous misstatements and assertions that he is the leading cause of the confusion.

Many of the talking points Obama regurgitates at every opportunity have been completely debunked, yet he feels if he continues to repeat these over and over, they could somehow come true. Or more likely, believe his lies.
The Montana Town Hall was supposed to be one that did not allow the White House to cherry pick attendees. However, many against the Health Care plan arrived at 8:00 AM to get tickets, which were supposed to be distributed beginning at 9:00 AM, only to be told the tickets were all gone.”

“NewsMax reported:

“Something’s a little fishy here,” Jim Walters, eastern coordinator for Resistnet, a grass-roots organization affiliated with the Grassfire.org Alliance, told Newsmax prior to the event. “They weren’t supposed to start handing out tickets until 9 o’clock. I had people up here at 8, and the tickets were already gone.”
Walters estimated 1,000 people were gathered outside the airport near Bozeman, Mont., where the event was held. Walters told Newsmax that union members who arrived via bus from Chicago had initiated an altercation with town hall protesters.

He said he saw police making several arrests.

“I don’t understand that,” Walters said of the union response. “We’re here to have peaceful rallies.”
So much for Grassroots. Bus loads of Union thugs are now the new norm at Obama Town Halls. Strange how these out of towners all managed to get tickets. I guess the Brown Shirts have priority over the common folk.
Obama specifically asked for someone who was “skeptical” of the reform plan. The person asking the question was an insurance salesman, and he asked why the president is trying to “vilify” health insurance companies. “My intent is not to vilify the insurance companies,” Obama said. “We want to make sure the practices that are very tough on people, those practices change.”

But since Obama had opened the meeting saying, “We are held hostage … by health insurance companies”, this was simply another lie. A post on this Blog a few days ago shows that insurance company profits come from investments, not overcharging premiums. Many years the Insurance Companies would have lost money if the premiums were their only income.
Obama’s claims to use prevention to save money is an interesting, but false premise. Charles Krauthammer debunks this theory and says it will actually cost more in an article in the Washington Post.
Obama followed suit in his Tuesday New Hampshire town hall, touting prevention as amazingly dual-purpose: “It saves lives. It also saves money.””

“So, the bottom line is that President Obama is spreading lies and false accounting data. There is no savings in the plan and this plan, in the end, will waste more money, degrade our Health Care system, and prove to be an absolute failure that will ruin our country.”

Obama thugs?, Thought police, Oklahoma City police officer, February 18, 2009, anti-President Barack Obama sign, Free speech threatened, Secret Service, FBI, First Amendment rights violated

Are Big Brother and the Thought Police tightening their grip?

From Enid Oklahoma News,Ffebruary 18, 2009:

“OKC officer pulls man over for anti-Obama sign on vehicle

By Bridget Nash, Staff Writer

An Oklahoma City police officer wrongly pulled over a man last week and confiscated an anti-President Barack Obama sign the man had on his vehicle.

The officer misinterpreted the sign as threatening, said Capt. Steve McCool, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, and took the sign, which read “Abort Obama, not the unborn.”

Chip Harrison said he was driving to work when a police car followed him for several miles and then signaled for him to pull over.

“I pulled over, knowing I hadn’t done anything wrong,” Harrison said in a recent phone interview.

When the officer asked Harrison if he knew why he had been pulled over, Harrison said he did not.

“They said, ‘It’s because of the sign in your window,’” Harrison said.

“It’s not meant to be a threat, it’s a statement about abortion,” Harrison said.

He said he disagrees with the president’s position on abortion.

“I asked the officer, ‘Do you know what abort means?’” Harrison said. “He said, ‘Yeah, it means to kill.’ I said, ‘No, it means to remove or terminate.’”

Harrison said his sign was to be interpreted as saying something like: Remove Obama from office, not unborn babies from the womb.

The officers confiscated Harrison’s sign and gave him a slip of paper that stated he was part of an investigation.”

““The Secret Service called and said they were at my house,” Harrison said.”

Obama, Thought Police, Obama thugs, Missouri, MS Thought Police, Obama lies, KMOV report, St. Louis, Big Brother in Missouri

George Orwell is probably turning over in his grave.

The Thought Police are real.

Many of us believed things would get worse if Obama gets elected. Well,
they have gotten worse already. The Thought Police, part of the
nightmare world revealed by George Orwell in “1984” are alive and
functioning in Missouri. The people in control in Orwell’s world
fabricated lies that included revisionist history, just as the Obama
camp has done. And just like the government of “Big Brother“, Obama
and the Obama camp are telling the lies and enforcing compliance.
Anyone questioning the reality of Obama, the messiah is attacked.

We are not making this up. Here is a report and video from KMOV in St. Louis.
The video caption reads:

“Obama campaign cracks down on misleading TV ads
September 23rd, 2008 The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.”

Watch the video:

http://www.kmov.com/video/index.html?nvid=285793&shu=1

From Gatewaypundit blog:
“Missouri Sheriffs & Top Prosecutors Form Obama “Truth Squads” & Threaten Libel Charges Against Obama Critics

More Hope and Change for Missouri…
St. Louis and Missouri Democrat sheriffs and top prosecutors are planning to go after anyone who makes false statements against Obama during his campaign. This is so one sided I can’t even begin to describe how wrong this agenda is.

It’s one thing if they want to keep the campaign fair for both sides, but they clearly only want to enforce the issue for the Obama Camp.”

http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/09/missouri-sheriffs-prosecuters-form.html

This is a clear abuse of power and needs to be stopped before it spreads.
God help us if Obama gets elected. This will become reality throughout
the country. Anyone who has questioned Obama knows this. Just ask the
actor, Jon Voight.

Stop Obama and his Thought Police now:

Obama Press Office, Larry Sinclair, Citizen Wells, Anti Larry Sinclair, blogger, Journalists, Philip J Berg lawsuit, Thought Police, 1984, Sinclair YouTube video, Obama camp recruiting attackers

Pre Obama camp, Thought Police Journalist definition:

a person engaged in journalism;
a writer or editor for a news medium;
a writer who aims at a mass audience

Obama camp, “1984” definition of Journalist:

One who does not question Obama

Larry Sinclair has come full circle with the Obama camp. In 2007, Mr.
Sinclair made multiple attempts to contact the Obama Campaign regarding
his drug and sex encounter with Obama in November 1999. Larry Sinclair,
after no response from the Obama camp, produced a YouTube video in
January 2008. In the past several days Larry Sinclair has contacted
the Obama Press Office attempting to get answers to questions. He has
been shunned and received rude treatment, despite many attempts. Larry
Sinclair notified me yesterday that an audio of a phone conversation
between a blogger and a Obama Press Office person had surfaced. The
blogger, Pete, stated that he was a anti Sinclair blogger. The lady
wrote down his information for future reference. This is just the kind
of person the Obama camp has been using to attack anyone questioning
Obama, the messiah.

Another interesting aspect of the conversation was the lady asking Pete
about Citizen Wells. Should I be honored? Have I been tagged for the
next level or wave of blitzkriegs from the Obama camp? Pete responded
“they both pretend to be journalists.”

Here is a YouTube video with the telephone conversation:

Now back to Pete’s remark:
“they both pretend to be journalists”

Pete is a self proclaimed anti Larry Sinclair blogger and he is calling
me a pretend journalist?
Let’s take a recent highly relevant topic that the MSM has not covered.
The Philip J Berg lawsuit that states that Obama is not qualified to
be president. This is the same lawsuit that Obama just filed a motion
to dismiss.

I helped break the story.

I have researched the story before the lawsuit was initiated.

I have read the legal documents.

I have been in touch with Mr. Berg and his office via emails.

I have asked Mr. Berg questions during interviews.

I have kept my website up to date with breaking news.

I may have been the first source to reveal the Obama, DNC motion
to dismiss the lawsuit.

I have devoted a page on my blog to the timeline and facts regarding
the story.

I have the Obama Press Office asking about me.

I am not a rocket scientist, but it looks like Citizen Wells meets the standard definition of a journalist. Can the same thing be said for most in the MSM?

Now a message to the Obama camp and the Obama press office. My blog has covered the complete picture of Obama, his past and his associations.
At any time, you could have responded with facts to repudiate or clarify
anything written here. Have you?

I have attempted to cover the real Obama from A to Z. This includes the
long time close ties to Tony Rezko, Dan Shomon, Stuart Levine, William
Ayers, Jeremiah Wright and a host of others. Here are 2 that the public
needs answers to:

Where was Obama on November 6 and 7, 1999 and why was Obama missing from the Illinois Senate on November 4, 1999?

Why did Obama and the DNC file a motion to dismiss the Philip J Berg lawsuit instead of producing a vault COLB? John McCain produced a vault COLB.

Obama camp, Obama Press Office. Do you have any facts you would like to
respond with or are you too busy attacking those questioning Obama
and recruiting more attackers.
