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.

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.

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.

If We Lose then Everybody Loses

 

The demonstrations (riots) occurring across the United States largely in the major cities, especially Democrat Party strongholds claiming that Trump is not, can not and never will be their President refuse to abate. Apart from this being a definite example of delusional denial, it is also much ado about nothing as the rules on how the office of President is chosen has been known for well over two-hundred years and all contenders understood the rules going in. It is not like Hillary Clinton has even shown the slightest designs or desires to challenge the results. There has been a number of disgusting results turn from these examples of bad behavior with one of the most egregious was the beating of a fifteen year old Rockville, Maryland High School student by numerous classmates for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. This was far from the only casualty from the protests where stores have been breached with their windows smashed and merchandise stolen. In one case a Starbucks Coffee store was broken into and coffee mugs were stolen and used as projectiles thrown at the police. Numerous other reports have surfaced of Trump supporters or just some refusing to join the protests being pummeled and beaten simply for not agreeing with the mob. For those who agree with these activities I have a simple question, what would your reaction have been if Hillary Clinton had won the Electoral College vote but lost narrowly in the popular vote and Trump supporters took to the streets rioting and beating Hillary supporters? If that would have struck you as indefensible, as I would hope it would, why are the current malcontents then tolerated. If Hillary supporters and all who voted for any of the candidates other than Trump, especially respected members of those groups, would come out and denounce these rioters then perhaps the United States could start working towards healing.

 

Civility is the basis for civilization and what allows disparate groups to coexist despite differing opinions. Elections are presumably the peaceful means for choosing leaders which has presumably been accepted as a replacement for generals or others leading their band of armed insurrectionists and taking the seat of power by force. That is the alternative which these demonstrators, especially those causing damage and beating anyone thought to be from the opposition, and the reason elections were initiated. Changing government by revolution every time a sizeable and well-armed group decided they should lead coming in and murdering the current leaders and destroying much of the capital city and sometimes leading to a major civil war destroying much of the kingdom all just to make a transition in power might be considered paying too high a price when compared to simply voting. Is this the system which is now being proposed by those rioting in the streets? Do any of them really believe they are going to get their way and Hillary Clinton will suddenly become the next President because they are rioting and destroying property? Lastly, what gives with the governors and mayors who are permitting such lawlessness? And lastly, enough with the ridiculous Trump supports the KKK or the Nazis or white supremacists of any stripe. That is no more true than Hillary Clinton being called a Communist or an Anarchist simply because some well-know Communist sympathizers or Anarchists came out supporting her, as I am sure there were at least a few. Just because some malcontent from any extreme on the political spectrum comes out in support does not make the candidate a supporter of the extremists represented by the particular claim of support. We do not control which crazies support a candidate and often cannot fathom even why there might be any reason for such support. Donald Trump has little to no actions in his past which infer in the slightest that he has a bigoted bone in his body. He is not a racist, anti-Semite, homophobe, sexist or even misogynist, though some might try to argue the last due to his action in decades past when male-female relations were quite different than today.

Then there is the claim that the Electoral College is unfair as it grants a resident of Wyoming as carrying greater weight than a resident of California or Texas or New York or even Alaska. Oddly enough, that was the whole idea of the Electoral College. When the Constitution was drawn up the founding Fathers realized quite quickly that any candidate for President if they could win New York and Virginia by wide margins could lose nine of the remaining eleven states and still win the election. This, in their thoughtful minds, seemed to give Virginia and New York far too much power and they needed all the states to sign onto the new Constitution. Remember the Federated States of America was the dysfunctional governance where the Federal government was too weak to run the nation and the country was disintegrating. The Constitution was the grand compromise which gave the smaller states significant additional representation in choosing a President simply by adding two Electoral Votes, one for each Senator, to the number of Representatives and thus making it so all the states would be represented in the White House. As the United States grew and Wyoming became the least settled state per square mile, Wyoming receives the greatest benefit of the Electoral College system and California is likely harmed the most followed by Texas, but it all works in the end as Wyoming still has but three Electoral Votes and is seldom the deciding state. We need remember that without the Electoral College system the United States would never have come into being and the Federated States of America would have dissolved into individual states and more resembled Europe economically, militarily and in all too many other ways, Alaska would still be a part of Russia, Hawaii would still be a Spanish colony or an independent nation, Texas would either be its own nation or still part of Mexico after Santa Anna beat the Texas militias. And Wyoming would still be Wyoming all alone and pretty much ignored as nobody would want to take the time or energy to conquer her. Wyoming would be pretty much unchanged as any invading army would need to defeat a number of states before reaching Wyoming and then would stand little chance against the mountain men who know their woodlands and highlands very well and live as they please even now. Lastly, Wyoming has some of the most breathtaking views that can be found anywhere within the United States, and that comes from having lived there.

 

In closing, can we do something which has gotten the United States through tougher and more distressing times than anything a President Trump can cause. The country is nowhere near as divided as many seem to wish to have it appear. You might have heard of this other time when brother took up arms against brother and the nation was divided into the blue and the grey and we fought a Civil War, a real Civil War and not just civil unrest. We realize you believe you are fighting a civil war, but trust that you are not and should you actually become that violent, well, let us just warn that you would not like how that would end. The United States survived President Grant, it survived President James K. Polk who did not even campaign but was elected due to two things, the party he represented had the election in the bag and his opponent ran on the slogan of, “Who the h3ll is James K. Polk?” Perhaps if his opponent, who is just as nameless today as then, had campaigned with his name in a slogan instead of his opposition, perhaps he might have won but instead all anyone knew was both sides were preoccupied with James K. Polk. He ran against Henry Clay who was one of the founding members of the Whig Party. We even survived a President who pretended to have a middle name, well, middle initial because all the great Presidents had a middle name. Thus we had President Harry S (for nothing) Truman sometimes stated by his contemporaries as Harry ask for nothing Truman because persuading Harry Truman was wasted effort as he drew his own course and never deviated from a decision and was the reason for a sign on his desk which faced the door reading, “The Buck Stops Here.” We survived a President who was an avid big game hunter, went hunting with the Czar of Russia and spent as little time in Washington as possible, a man who despite great wealth gathered a group of roughnecks and went to war because it would be jolly fun, yep, President Theodore Roosevelt. The United States has survived virtually every kind of President imaginable, Harvard educated, Yale educated and self-taught, raised in luxury and poverty, military men and pacifists and somehow the United States has developed a life of its own which manages to always return to a central pillar based on equal freedoms being granted to ever wider portions of the nation’s peoples. One example was due to President elect Donald Trump who opened his Palm Beach resort called Mar-a-Lago; he insisted that it be opened to everybody including specifically Jews and Blacks, something never permitted in “exclusive” resorts, clubs and other venues breaking this barrier which held into the 1990s. The outrageous fact here is not that it was Donald Trump who broke the barrier and fought a running battle with the city officials for over a decade because of his inclusive policies but that Palm Beach had such rules in place into the 1990s and was still regarded as an all American resort town, now that is unbelievable and a truth that needs more emphasis. Still, if we all calm down we will survive the coming four years and then we can review whether Donald Trump was more President or clown and if clown, replace him and get on with life. Thank you.
