The Emergence of Departments of Official Government Truths

 

The globalist agenda to strike down international borders, erasing independent nation states forming a borderless map making them an entity from the dark past as if remnants of the Dark Ages, took some big hits this past year. BREXIT was the British striking back at the precarious position of the European Union, and especially the policies born of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open invitation to Arab and Muslim world refugees to swamp Europe in a sea of potential terror and breakdown of order and civility. Across the pond, the Atlantic Ocean to the less astute, the United States elected Donald Trump and an entire slate of close the border anti-amnesty for illegal immigrant Congressional representatives to both houses. Time is not waiting to have the internationalists strike back at the heart of the, retain the borders and man the barricades, forces. The internationalists have taken direct aim at the heart of this movement, truth and reality. Welcome to the age of government Ministry of Information straight out of George Orwell’s 1984, a little late to make his prediction of 1984, but arrive it has.

 

The reasoning behind the “fake news” epidemic which culminated this past week where, according to the Jerusalem Post, amongst others, “Pakistani Defense Minister Khawaja M. Asif threatened Israel late Friday night, following a fake news report from the website AWD, stating that Israel’s defense minister was threatening to destroy Pakistan.” This will be the specific reason that such news stories are presumably considered to be such a threat to national security and the continued safety of the public. Once again actions are being taken to keep you safe from a threat created by governments in the first place. Instead of forcing those who willingly disclose false news stories without so labeling them, and also prosecuting those who knowingly repeat these fake news stories, the governments of the world will instead become the sole sources for true and real news stories. Unless the government has vetted any story, the public will never actually know whether the news they are reading is real or something from the furtive imagination of some lunatic somewhere.

 

The two government departments of truth we have read that are coming into our daily lives at some point; if not curtailed early and with definitive public furor being raised and true ire shown such that the members of the United States Congress are made to realize that the people are adult enough to discern real from fake news stories, then we will receive no unfiltered news. The government is not required to hold out hands throughout life treating us as their wayward children in constant need of protection from the horrific threats which abound in the public arena. In Germany they are establishing the “Center of Defense Against Disinformation” while the United States has buried this gem deep within the 2017 defense spending authorization bill, an omnibus piece of legislation where most members of Congress receive a summary of contents rather than read such a long and mostly individual expenditures and their cost and descriptions are contained, calling it the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” which will establish and have funded a “Center for Information Analysis and Response” at a cost of millions of American taxpayers’ dollars. As well as being a direct threat to protections provided specifically in the Bill of Rights, the First Amendment in particular compromising free speech and the independent press, this legislation is a direct insult to each and every American as it is treating them as if they are incapable of differentiating the real news from trusted sources from questionable sources known for their falsifying the news often for satirical editorial content all done to prove a point through use of absurdity. The First Amendment reads as follows”

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

First Amendment

First Amendment

 

That appears to be concise but amply understandable and more than applies to this idea. The particular part of interest would read, “abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,” which does not state freedom to only release news which was first vetted by the government, which is the logical end result as this department gains in scope, strength, power and legitimacy which will come simply due to any amount of time where they have carefully performed their assigned duties only to fight the most egregious instances of fake news and then claiming they are a public service, not a potential menace to be watched like a hawk. Eventually this department will grow, as do virtually every government agency which start with noble purposes and eventually morph into rights stealing monstrosities, and begin to offer licenses and verifications of news stories and anything found not to contain their approval will be regarded with suspicion. This will mark the end of the assisting and begin the dictating of truth and once the government controls the verification of the truth, then the government defines the truth. This was the result of numerous “fake news” stories highlighted to have been carried by reputable newspapers and other media which became the cause celeb leading down a scripted dance trail right into the waiting arms of Congress and arrived as a need desperately requiring the heavy hand of government. We need remember the worlds of the first President of the United States, George Washington, who stated, “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence,—it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant, and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.” There are also the words of the fortieth President Ronald Reagan who stated, “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” Both had a similar ring, namely that the government is not to be trusted as our keeper any more than a fire-bearer should be trusted in a fireworks factory, some things are simply bad ideas. Having the government deciding that which is worthy of being considered news and that which is simply the fancy words of some sarcastic editorialist, then the government has the power of determining the knowledge allowed the people and such censorship should be considered intolerable. The people are to be given reporting of events in the whole cloth, the wheat with the chaff and be trusted to separate the two taking to heart only that which stands deep scrutiny and has earned their trust; government, actually, not so much.

 

Commenting on these new revelation, it was noted how convenient it will be for German Chancellor Angela Merkel to be reelected to a fourth term with her government appointees being placed in the position of censoring news content such that all suspect news which counters her positions, particularly on the admission of untold numbers of unvetted “refugees” from an area of the world which does not respect or even know of the rights and the self-control and observance of the laws and customs of the lands which make our freedoms possible. The reality in the United States, the place where these rights were first instituted and where the society had been cultivated with deep religious and moralist education based on the Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament, and where the second President of the United States, John Adams, had serious and vital input and understanding of the system of laws and limitations on government and empowering the people were included within those written pages. It was he, John Adams, who stated eloquently but with simplicity that, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” He was referring directly to a religious people steeped in Judeo-Christian ethos and though not directly ruling out all others, was placing an individual market which was to warn of a time when the people would no longer present the restrained and courteous nature and instead would run roughshod over these rights perverting their very meanings and abusing these very liberties and that at such a time the governance itself would be filled with such people after which freedom would perish and tyranny would be entrenched.

 

There is a deeply funded and extraordinarily tangled and broad alliance which appears willing to redefine Western life and curtail the power and freedom of the people. These Ministries of Information are simply the latest attempt at destroying alternative news sources and initially earning the people’s praise and trust before slowly bringing everything to a boil in the hopes we the people never notice we are being boiled in order to strip us of our freedoms one by one at first and towards the end it will become two by two and ten by ten and then simply the floodgates will open. The damages already established but not fully implemented rules, regulations, actual laws and other ministerial empowerments are waiting for the words which will send forth from Washington D.C. the paralyzing enforcements of every last iota of the plan establishing their authority to control all that we do, all that we are permitted, and reeducation for those who hold fast to the old ways of freedom and people power. Europe has already turned the bend and may be beyond saving as the European Union (EU) has taken over from the individual governments, hate crime laws have silenced the truth, all economies are centrally planned in Brussels, the borders have been all but completely erased, the outer borders left completely unguarded, the military strength of each member has been drained into a central EU run and controlled army, police powers are virtually all centralized with control not far behind, everything not nailed down has become taxable, and lastly freedom exists as a shell of its former self and will be completely wiped from the continent within a year or two if not measured in months or days or even seconds. The United States used to stand a solid decade behind the Europeans but now is standing amongst them strolling down this primrose path, the flowered path which leads to perdition and where shortly the flowered trough on either side grows barren with the smell of brimstone soon to follow. Some claim the flames are licking at our toes, others claim we are up to our necks in the fiery furnace all while the government tells us to trust them as they will get things right this time. The only thing those who lead the majority of political parties, the elites in both Parties of the United States and of a fairly large percentage of the wonderful political entities’ elites as these people are all desirous that we arrive at the same station passing all the same stops and refusing to disembark because we have been told there is a great reward waiting at the end of the tracks. The problem is that there is nothing beyond the end of the tracks except slavery to the chosen ones. From George Orwell’s 1984 we read, “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.” For those demanding something a little more contemporary, we have Captain Apollo explaining about his world, one much like Earth itself, stating emphatically, “I came from a world where the people believed that the opposite of war was peace. We found out the hard way that the opposite of war is more often slavery.” (Found in video below, a short period after the 6:22 minute mark)

 

 

History has proven that statement to be far too valid. We can also see from history that losing a war also begets slavery if not worse. But probably the most difficult lesson which mankind has apparently not learned is that delaying facing evil and attempting to coddle and coerce evil to forget its ways in exchange for forgiveness results in the deaths of many thousands if not hundreds of thousands or even tens of millions of lives in a far more difficult war once evil has armed themselves, often clandestinely, and readied for the war those so invested in peace as to not believe anybody would war against them believing in their superiority of arms. Such stupidity brought on World War II and the most horrific fighting the world had ever witnessed. The next time stopping a rising evil will not be anywhere as limited as World War II, it will be fought in trenches by the survivors of the initial exchanges of rockets tipped with weapons of unimaginable destruction being leveled not against military targets but against the civilian and industrial infrastructure targets in order to prevent even the ability to feed the people, let alone defend them. Editing for accuracy and validity and removing “fake news” will result in only one thing, censoring news such that things the government deems too troubling or reflecting too harshly on the governance amongst other reasons for limiting information. That is what these new agencies are about, limiting information. Then the next conflagration will come upon a world completely ill-prepared for facing the truth any longer as the truth will have become too far separated from their lives and the base of their knowledge, that knowledge which was sculpted through omissions and censorings along with massaging the few challenging truths which do finally break through. We need understand that the next step is to place a United Nations Universal Mission for Truth and Verification of Reporting and Validation of Editorial Content (UNUMTVRVEC) or Umteveravec. All newspapers will need to have the Umteveravec seal, kind of like a Classification Marks (Underwriters Laboratories). These approval marks will be granted each year providing the media has met the fairness doctrines which will not be fair, the balanced reporting requirement which will not be balanced, the factual reflection guidelines which will not be fact based, and the represents faith in government requisite which will not be permitted any amount of harshness and only limited truth. News will be neat, clean and leaving no loose ends, doubts or questions by the nature of reporting always becomes when the government approval is required to do business. When evil approaches under such predatory vetting of the news, the people will be as unprepared as was the allied powers when World War I and again when World War II broke out, does anybody think we will be ready when the world is teetering on the brink and government is doing all they can to appear in control and without a care in the world? Of course the people will not be ready as required, though the people will know at the least that they are not being properly informed and that the government is hiding things simply because what they read and what they see every day do not match.

The big difference between Underwriters Laboratories and Umteveravec is that Underwriters Laboratories is a privately owned company which has made a name for themselves for thoroughness and have the people’s trust and know that should they lose the people’s trust or the respect of the manufacturers that they are out of business, so accuracy and care are requirements of their workforce’s jobs. Umteveravec would be a United Nations agency which would owe its budget to the United Nations and its credibility to the individual nations who would then require or exempt their news services from meeting any of the Umteveravec regulations and turning over their news vetting to the United Nations. Umteveravec, as a United Nations Agency would be invested heavily in making the world appear perfect with few problems thus allowing the United Nations to skate through even on thin ice and not fear any danger of falling through. The world itself would become a very dangerous place and in many ways because of these dangerous and perilous times approaching, the powers that be from all parties will be conspiring to paint over any real problems and very probably simply blame all the world’s problems upon the Israelis or whichever nations they felt deserved scorn. Currently another target would be Britain due to their dastardly deed of leaving the EU. Imagine the horror stories about any nation which had the audacity to resign from the United Nations or not pay their rightful dues (in the case of the United States that would include an extra amount to pay for Russia and other nations who claim that the United States is responsible for keeping them paid in full). We will see how these monitoring sites do in preventing “bad” and “evil” reporting from ruining our day while endangering our lives.

Can We Have One More Hacking by Russia Please?

 

We learned many secrets about debate cheating, Bernie Sanders undermining, damning e-mails, Clinton Foundation used as pay for play when Hillary was Secretary of State, and other Democrat misdeeds. We have recently learned that the republican National Committee computers were also hacked and that most of the information which might be damning to Trump was already being used by many Republican elites and leaders in their effort to undermine Trump, they couldn’t. The reality is Trump first defeated the Republicans and then the Democrats with a partial assist from some wings of the Republican elites and establishment. Trump even faced down Evangelical threats from some in that community and still won a majority of the Evangelical votes and they did not stay home as some had prayed for them to on Election Day. So, we have heard much of the personal reasons that Trump should be considered ineligible to run for dog catcher, let alone President of the United States. We have heard every possible case of his womanizing, most well over a decade and a half old, his numerous statements which would be considered politically incorrect today except these comments were mostly two decades old, and many quotes out of context of things said on the campaign. But we heard very little about his business dealings other than that about one in five or so companies he has invested in have gone bankrupt. If such a record is considered failing, may I be blessed with such a failing track record. We heard little if anything about those companies in which Donald Trump is currently invested which are the bases of his wealth. So, Russia, before you put away your super-hacking computer network, could you give us the lowdown on Trump’s economic empire please?

 

We have had the election in the United States, an election which does have effects across the entirety of the globe. Throughout much of the world and all of the developed world we read the transcripts of the findings from the hacking of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server, the hanky-panky done favoring Hillary Clinton by the Democrat National Committee working to undermine Bernie Sanders, the Clinton Foundation used as bank for pay for play for audience or consideration by Secretary of State Clinton, and the cheating over debate questions, well, at least one by Donna Brazile who was working for CNN while also performing as acting Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, who at CNN thought this coexisting arrangement was a good idea? Yes, we noticed that almost everything released was damning of the Democrats and especially Hillary Clinton. Many have asked where was similar such information about the Republicans and Donald Trump? Well, the Republicans did an excellent job of casting aspersions against Donald Trump and then there were the combined efforts by CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and more known often as the mainstream media.

 

Still, where is the all-encompassing list of Donald Trump’s wealth and its sources and all the companies and endeavors in which he is invested? This is something people would probably be interested in knowing before he makes decisions on where government investments, funding, grants and apportionment are made. Knowing where Donald Trump is invested would be necessary information for the public interest and knowing this before it can be used as political weapons by the media and possibly distorted. The media has discounted their credibility beyond repair for the near future. With such compromised credibility their reporting on Trump having conflicts of interest would be more credible were we all to have a complete revelation of the entirety of Trump’s financial empire.

 

Foreknowledge is useful and trusted knowledge while slanted partial knowledge is used in making a biased case by a corrupted media. That is why we need to make public either by Trump and his boards of directors making a complete disclosure or such a revelation from what proves to be a trustworthy release through similar methods as the hacking of the Democrat and Hillary Clinton computers during the election. This information could come from the Republican National Committee in cooperation or not with the Democrat National Committee which would only add credibility to any report. Such a revelation would also benefit Donald Trump and his Presidency as knowing ahead of any government decisions whether a President Trump has any interests in certain legislation and monetary endowments or allotments are finalized by Congress with or without any interaction from the White House. Trump should also arrange to have his investments managers in a blind trust where he places limits on what can and what cannot be redistributed or reinvested in other ventures and what risks should be encountered by such investments. Once he has disconnected himself from direct involvement in managing his investments, then a President Trump can act as President with far more freedom.

The next month plus is going to be interesting with its share of potential pitfalls and dangers. President Obama will be pressed by those on the far left to take drastic actions on his own with his pen and his phone. One such demand coming from these interests is to take revenge on Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu by recognizing a new Arab nation of Palestine with borders of the Green Line dividing Jerusalem and removing the Temple Mount and Kotel (Western Wall) from access for Jews, Christians and any other non-Muslims. The media will never cover such a reality but should the world intervene and force an Arab Palestine and give them Eastern Jerusalem then the identical situation which existed under Jordan would immediately become reality again. Further, many areas of Western Jerusalem would become a no-man’s land as Palestinian snipers would be placed at high points within their territories and would open fire on anybody they could place within their sites. All one need do is research the Jordanian illegal occupation of Eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. Forcing such a solution on Israel could potentially lead to a bloodbath as the Palestinian security forces set upon murdering any Jew residing or working beyond the Green Line believing the world would support such and have their backs. The result would be the IDF deployed to protect Israeli lives and there would definitely lead to an exchange of live fire and fatalities predominantly on the Palestinian side. The world would then denounce Israel for defending innocent lives from potential slaughter just as has happened every time Israel has responded to Hamas rocket assaults and sniper fire from Gaza and now tunneling attacks as well as sea based infiltrations.

 

Then there are pressures from the Green Movement who are demanding regulations making fracking illegal citing environmental devastation they claim is a direct result. There are likely many other environmental demands being placed on the outgoing administration mostly due to fear that a Trump Presidency will mean the end of the world due to environmental threats being loosed. In addition to environmental concerns there are leftist economic theories such as living wages for all and having limits on top amount of earnings per year, redistribution of all retirement savings, redistribution of all assets and wholly proven unworkable systems. There may be a demand for increased car emissions limitations and additional safety systems. There may be those who wish to demand limitation on use of vehicles such as within cities over a certain size and other limits. Some demand all cars be electric and an end to the internal combustion engine. The nice thing is that almost all of these are ideas which the President is literally powerless to employ. The real problem would be the President signing the United States onto United Nations agreements which could prove disastrous were only his signature required. Any such agreement also would require ratification by Congress which would not be forthcoming and anything signed by President Obama could be unsigned by President Trump though simply having Congress reject ratification would work as well.

 

The other little trick we will witness with such items growing as the inauguration approaches will be the lists of problems facing the incoming President. We are going to be introduced to the return of many plagues which have been apparently in remission until Trump was elected. The reason could not be that the media ignored these situations and have only rediscovered them because they want to burden a President Trump with these persistent, tenacious and unrelenting societal problems. Suddenly there will be homeless people, untreated people with mental conditions, high murder rates especially in many cities, high drug use especially amongst teenagers, venereal diseases, cancer patients not receiving proper treatments, overcrowded hospitals, urgent need for more trauma and emergency room facilities, education problems such as lack of teachers, bullying, need for affirmative actions, mistreatment of LGBTQ persons, campus date rape, child abuse rising, rampant gun crime, increased gang warfare, prostitution rising, foreclosures, small business failures, and we could continue this list ad nauseum so we will leave the lengthy complaints to those with the real expertise, the mainstream media. The fact that Donald Trump has not been sworn in and the Congress is in recess will not prevent his and the Republican majority Congress with being negligent in allowing these challenges to go unaddressed. They will be demanding they speak about and do something immediately and then will impatiently write impassioned credible lamentation immediately after the inauguration wondering where the nation’s leadership is and why they are not stepping up on their lengthy challenges. This can continue throughout Trump’s Presidency but there is good news. Eventually these complaints will lead to the return of the Democrats to power and then these problems will all disappear from the public attentions as all will be good again.

Election Leaves Need for Safe Spaces

 

This election of Donald Trump to be the next President of the United States has really stressed me out. I am reeling and in dire need of a series of safe spaces in near every place which I visit. I go get coffee at my usual place and there it is in my face, Donald Trump will be President come January 20, 2017. Dinner out, more Trump is pushed in my face. Where are my safe spaces like all those lucky college children have access to while their professors cancel exams and hold weep-ins instead of lectures. Even going to the grocery store and you pass the newsstand where you are reminded about President elect Trump and all that entails and there will always be somebody who just has to discuss the election and if unlucky the checkout person who might just decide to want to speak about the election knowing I blog on politics. There is absolutely no way to run to a safe place when at the checkout counters. One cannot escape waiters, especially those who know you blog politics, from their asking your take on Donald Trump. Where are my safe spaces from these people who insist on knowing what my advice is to survive the coming apocalypse known as the Trump Presidency? Where do I go to escape these hurt feeling leftists who automatically believe because I appear intelligent (and who knows, I might actually be intelligent, but that is not for me to claim) I must be appalled by Trump winning the election. Honestly, we who actually are glad that Trump won need safe places from these leftists who believe that Trump won without anybody actually supporting his candidacy. They even believe that there cannot be anybody in their lives who might support Trump. Then, lastly, why am I being so silly as everybody knows that supporters of Trump are not allowed in safe places. Trump supporters are evil and must be shrieked at in a fashion eerily resembling the pod people from Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

 

Then there are the ongoing horrors on the faces when these mind-numbed people finally figure out the bored and fed up look on your face is not your traumatized look due to Trump being elected but your growing impatience with people assuming you could never have supported such a person. Funny, that is how I feel about people who voted for Hillary Clinton. These infantile people think that if they continually bombard you with question on how you can explain how each appointee can be explained or even pretend to have any experience which would qualify them for each position. Really? Like how can a retired general who commanded military intelligence could ever be considered qualified to be security advisor since he did not take the right elective courses, attend Columbia, Harvard or Yale, and obviously does not possess the sensitivity to feel the right direction and how to softly apply American presence in such a manner as to not upset any snowflakes who are currently coloring books, playing with play-dough, cuddling puppies and sipping herbal teas hoping to continue at these projects until somebody sensitive is elected to the Presidency.

 

There has to be a way to permit those so taken out-of-sorts by a simple election not agreeing with their perceived correct choice, to opt out of any future election. As their ability to understand any differing opinion than their own is to opt out of any activity within the real world and allow them to continue with their puppy cuddling, coloring-book coloring, tea sipping and joint primal screaming sessions insulated from the real world so it does not hurt them and their influence does not harm the rest of us. There are those who chose Hillary Clinton for actual reasoning and who can actually explain why they did so and also explain why the idea of a President Trump is troubling to them rather than simply repeating the accusations of Trump is a racist, hater, idiot, fascist, not nice, evil, the devil, scary or any of any number of one to three word slogans which can be seen on the vast majority of protest signs. Mind you, the signs with the big red hearts followed by Trumps Hate or Love Trumps Hate are so intelligent except how do they apply to the election of Donald Trump? Are they implying that Love is Trump or that Trump Hates or are they simply using a phrase they saw and thought was like way kewl and just so smart that it had to be the thing. Bad news for these brilliant minds, it is absolutely meaningless as we all wish that Love Trumps Hate and do not see where that implies anything about the President elect except that the word Trumps contains the letters T-R-U-M-P in the sign and thus might imply something about the President elect, but sorry, it doesn’t really mean anything obvious and definitely that Trump Hates as the chant which has accompanied these signs implies. Signs are supposed to be intuitively obvious and not confusing or vague as you are conveying a message and not a trite saying which everybody would love to actually describe an actual truth in life. We all hope that Love (or big heart) Trumps Hate but we do not automatically equate that with Trump Hates as we do not just take the last words from the sign and move the ‘s’ from Trump to hate and feel so smug and smart.

 

Safe Space with Puppy Cuddle

Safe Space with Puppy Cuddle

 

Now here is some advice for these people who are all bent and forlorn. Start looking for a candidate who can garner the support of more people than Hillary Clinton was capable of snaring. Hint, Elizabeth Warren might be a better candidate as would Bernie but they are both very extreme in their beliefs and many Americans do not share their beliefs. Many Americans do not agree with everything Trump has said but many believed that the one thing Donald Trump would be capable of doing is choosing solid and qualified people to advise him and be responsible for the different areas and Cabinet posts. Work to find candidates for position less lofty than President and see if during the next elections you can win back the House of Representatives or the Senate and then work with a President Trump to assist in the recovery necessary in both the economy and in the United States international standing. Democrats should be seen as desiring a better America rather than striving for an extremist agenda which does not function, and candidates who believe the United States is a necessary force for good and what is right in the world and forges a greater peace. The exit from the world over the past eight years or so has brought disaster down on many parts of the world including many allies in Europe, Asia, Africa and elsewhere. Work toward a constructive presence and not simply choose to find reasons to tear the nation apart and complain that things are not going just as you desire because you need to take effort and compromise in order to make friends and win elections. Ideologues usually find their way difficult and opposition strong while those willing to listen to others and work together accomplish far more. The last though, let us all work to make a President Trump as successful taking America forward and improving all our lives and making the United States important again as when America acts with means which prove important, the world usually wins. America has been one of the greatest forces for good and it would be horrific if America ever became a force for evil, and Donald Trump does not desire an evil future for America no matter what you may have heard. At least wait and see what he does and judge him on his actions and policies and not on hearsay from people who refuse to even grant the man any chance to prove he is not the bringer of the Apocalypse.
