'1984' Revisited—Reprised for Obvious Reasons

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2018-07-01 05:54

I've added 1984 to the books I'm currently reading or, as in this case, re-reading. I'm astonished anew at how prescient it was. (Also refreshing, after Dostoevsky and Hugo, to encounter a writer who just gets on with it.) I assume everyone here is acquainted with it, so every day will just add a direct quote without commentary. This one is apposite in light of today's demonstrations by mindless leftist thugs:

The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretense was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one's will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp. Thus, at one moment Winston's hatred was not turned against Goldstein at all, but, on the contrary, against Big Brother, the Party, and the Thought Police; and at such moments his heart went out to the lonely, derided heretic on the screen, sole guardian of truth and sanity in a world of lies.

WAR IS PEACE FREEDOM IS SLAVERY IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

Orwell, George. 1984


Joint Naval and Air Force Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam

There was a lockdown and shelter in place order at Joint Naval and Air Force Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam today.

Think about what needs would force you outdoors soon (where you may not want to be or allowed to be.) Consider taking care of them now. What would keep you from staying indoors for a week? Fix it now.

Assume the absence of all communications and the disruption of energy and water into your home.

General Charles Flynn, Commander of US Army Pacific

Jon Letendre's picture

General Charles Flynn (younger brother of Mike Flynn, who was President Trump's National Security Advisor and who has personally confirmed Q in scores of ways on scores of occasions) was sworn-in Commander of US Army Pacific yesterday.

President Trump just hours ago: "We're gonna take back the White House, and sooner than you think."

Lin Wood recently wrote,

"I note as a matter of Constitutional law, impeachment is the removal process for a duly and lawfully elected President of the United States. IN my opinion Joey "bribes" Biden does not qualify for impeachment!
I do note that there was an effort made to impeach President Trump after January 20.
Keep researching.
Use your common sense.
Connect the dots.
And rest well!"

If he wasn't even the President after January 20 then why did they attempt removal of him after January 20?

Where’s the clip of Trump saying this?

Olivia's picture

That’s the NYT spinning fake news.
I haven’t heard or read that Trump “is telling people that he will be reinstated," or expects to be.
That line came from Sidney Powell when she was talking about the audits.
https://rumble.com/vhtoa5-sidn...

And John, there’s no “temporary intervention.” Trump totally lost to fraud and Biden is President.
The only way that could be overturned is through the audit process to reveal the fraud - and then the Supreme Court finally being prepared to look at the evidence.
There’s no master plan or anything like all that Q nonsense.

reinstated

Jon Letendre's picture

For background, ten weeks ago I wrote: "It may well be that Trump is the President today. He may have been sworn in for his second term and is currently President of the United States. Or he may have initiated a military handover at the end of his first term — it may be that there is no President at the moment."

Maggie Haberman, a correspondent for The New York Times, is reporting that Trump is telling people he will be reinstated by August.

Reinstated. To restore to a previous position.

If he signed executive orders based on foreign infiltration of the US government and authorizing covert military intelligence observation of the election and if the military hierarchy then witnessed for themselves the Nov 3rd coup, then all conditions would have been met for Trump's temporary dismissal and the introduction of their temporary intervention.

They will know for certain that he won. They will be able to convincingly demonstrate as much. That means he is President. And when they are through removing the cancer, they would restore him to his position.

Now, about General Flynn and his "on/off calls for a coup." This is really very simple. When he said yeah, let's do what they're doing in Myanmar, he means the process I outlined above. When a COUP occurred by massive election fraud, the Burmese military took over to correct the situation. A coup is not a mere change in who has power. A coup is when the legitimate is replaced by the illegitimate. The Burmese military is right now repairing a COUP which that nation suffered. So when Flynn says yeah, let's do that, he really means yeah, we're doing that. And when he says nah, we shouldn't do a coup, he means one already occurred and he and his boys are now repairing it.

You of anything?

The Government finds a dead bird.

1. It decides the bird can be "cured"

2. It announces they've found an obscure failed academic - a joke in his profession - who says the bird may still be alive.

3. The government sets up a committee to investigate the bird's condition

4. The committee is chaired by....the joke academic!

5. Woke teenagers start screaming hysterically that they "feel" the bird is alive

6. So burn down a couple of cities

7. Congress holds hearings on the bird's condition

8. It's decided to send everyone a check - especially the Kennedy Center - to make them feel better

9. A God-like Sex Warrior (ahem) suggests the bird is indeed....dead. Expired. 'Late'.

10. He is derided as a conspiracy theorist. And racist (naturally)

11. A year later when the bird still seems a bit....under the weather, a second check is sent to everyone.

12. More hearings are held

13. More experts consulted.

14. Unable to find any evidence of life, the government simply ignores reality and declares the bird to be alive.

15. So there! (You racist)

"Biden is President" is a hoax

Jon Letendre's picture

The Trump side devastates all our enemies for five straight years. Replaces everyone at the top of intelligence, Defense, Justice, State. His buddy MBS tortures a dozen of his own family members, hangs the controlling owner of Twitter (his cousin's son) upside-down and tortures tens of billions of dollars, and control of Twitter itself, right out of him. (search MBS twitter bin talal)

But Trump just couldn't overcome the superior scheming of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris? He thwarted the Dem Clinton cheat machine in 2016 when he controlled nothing then failed in 2020 with every lever of power in hand?

The enemy knew years ago that Trump would win by an enormous landslide. That was inevitable (and it is what actually happened.) They knew they would then have to raise the intensity of their tactics, bring the war to the next level in his second term. They made their plans. Their plans became known to our side. They were indeed very nasty plans with significant body counts. President Trump would have a very hard time keeping the country together in the environment they would create. Any President would.

But they would never get to put any of it into practice because to their utter shock Trump says on January 6th: "Everyone go home, we must have peace. We must have a peaceful transition." Now they would have to do something they never planned for: full-blown four-year follow-through of the fairy tale that Biden is President. It may well be that Trump is the President today. He may have been sworn in for his second term and is currently President of the United States. Or he may have initiated a military handover at the end of his first term — it may be that there is no President at the moment.

"Biden is President" is a hoax our enemies did not expect to be forced to perform and it is not sustainable. Exponential Sun Tzu. Enjoy the show!

Grassroots worldwide demand for eradication in progess

Jon Letendre's picture

It fascinates me how everyone is struggling to understand what really happened last November–January but so few go to the most natural of explanations, that being that what happened was exactly what the team Trump is on wanted, planned and made happen. I suppose some of the reason so few go for this is that they (still have not read any Q posts, and therefore still) cannot yet see it is a good plan. It looks like chaos and inefficacy struck the team and so observers on his side are as fooled as the operatives on the other side. (Good acting. Good Sun Tzu.)

Eradication of the global conspiracy BY TRUMP would never have been accepted. The People of all nations must feel the enemy's evil for themselves. They have to feel it. Those still on the fence are not thinking types. They must be walked to the precipice and made to contemplate their imminent personal destruction.

Eradication by grassroots demand of The People WILL BE accepted. No civil war. No world war.

You are watching a scripted show.

Yes Jon. It surely is a quick meet and greet by Biden with green screen type artifacts visible, e.g. his hair disappearing. This coupled with him calling arse Harris President can only lead us to the conclusion that he will be retired sooner than you think.

Has everyone researched the video trick of Biden pretending to appear on the White House lawn with reporters while his hands phase quite impossibly in front of microphones?

The sloppy work was captured from multiple angles.

It is done by taking video of him captured somewhere else (somewhere with stronger lighting than on the lawn that day -- look at how bright the top of his head is compared to the ambient light,) and superimposing that over the White House lawn video. Or by generating his entire appearance with CGI -- there is no man standing, walking or talking -- but all of it is generated by software from samples of a face and voice.
This is not technologically difficult or advanced, just very desperate and dishonest.

Enjoy the show.

Still think it was organic,spontaneous, or done by Trump people?

Woke-Fascists Admit Their Conspiracy

Lindsay Perigo's picture

Woke-Fascist Time Magazine inadvertently reveals the steal was real:

This is the inside story of the conspiracy to save the 2020 election, based on access to the group’s inner workings, never-before-seen documents and interviews with dozens of those involved from across the political spectrum. It is the story of an unprecedented, creative and determined campaign whose success also reveals how close the nation came to disaster. “Every attempt to interfere with the proper outcome of the election was defeated,” says Ian Bassin, co-founder of Protect Democracy, a nonpartisan rule-of-law advocacy group. “But it’s massively important for the country to understand that it didn’t happen accidentally. The system didn’t work magically. Democracy is not self-executing.”

That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.

That crazy Qanon MFer got into their beloved Capitol Building and they didn't bat an eyelash, but were quite relieved, when Trump sent tens of thousands of red-pilled troops to take total physical possession of the city.

Votes to impeach are coming up. Votes on his punishments will come after voting to convict. They want to strip him of all future office-holding rights, strip him and his family of Secret Service protection, etc. They will have to enter the city, which is encircled with concertina wire, in order to make these *treasonous* and Republic-ending votes. Once inside the city, after the gate goes down -- Schrödinger's cat.

"Telling them hasn't worked. Telling will never work. They are being systematically brainwashed to avoid waking up and seeing it. They have to be shown in real experience. They need to be shaken. Buckle up, this ending will not be for everyone."

This reminds me of something Leonard Peikoff said. In my only correspondence ever with him, when he used to do the Q&A, I asked him about his thoughts on Libertarian's "The Free State Project" in New Hampshire. Here's my question, followed by his response. (Basically, I asked if The FSP would be a good way to "Show" people, and his response was that if the achievements of the Founding Fathers wasn't enough to show them, that the libertarians in New Hampshire didn't stand a chance to do so...)

Hello, Dr. Peikoff,

If you have the time, I'd like to ask you a question. Given your
opposition to Libertarianism on principle, what is your take on the "Free
State Project?" Do you think there is any merit (if not hope) to this
project?

(If you're not familiar with it, it's a Libertarian project to get a certain amount of people who support limited government to move to New Hampshire to have an effect on the local vote, and show in microcosm what is possible on
a larger scale. www.freestateproject.org.)

More specifically, I'm curious what you might think of it given that, if I'm correct, Objectivism promotes the idea of education as a primary agent of change (based on Rand's belief that it was "too soon...to who would an
Objectivist candidate speak?" (paraphrased). Do you think that, even if this project will most likely not succeed, it has any value as an experiment, to gauge the cultural readiness for limited government, or maybe value as an"adhoc committee" experiment, or as an exercise similar to civil disobedience?

What would you advise to those Objectivists who may be sympathetic to an
attempt of this kind?"

His response:

"Dear Mr. Maurone,

If the founding and flourishing of this free nation did not demonstrate to
the world for all time the superiority of capitalism over all other systems,
can you really believe that a sprinkling of confused--the most complimentary
word I can think of--libertarians huddled in New Hampshire will do the job?

Sincerely,

Leonard Peikoff"

They refuse to look at evidence. Telling them hasn't worked. Telling will never work. They are being systematically brainwashed to avoid waking up and seeing it. They have to be shown in real experience. They need to be shaken. Buckle up, this ending will not be for everyone.

Art of War

Jon Letendre's picture

People,

Under whose watch did all the troops enter Washington?
For what cause/reasons?

Under Trump. Because he feared insurrection by his supporters. He feared a physical takeover of Washington by his own supporters and this motivated him to militarize a small city with more troops than are currently stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq combined. I understand that Trump haters lap that shit up, but do you?

Of course they lapped it up and still do, because it's absolutely genius. If I had told you a month ago that he would militarize the city to the hilt, encircle them all, then retire in order to wash his hands of the ending you would immediately call me crazy -- How will he get away with the first step without causing panic everywhere? Now you now how. Lifelong student of Sun Tzu.

This is all scripted, mostly by the good guys, who are still totally in control.

The appearance that the team

Jon Letendre's picture

The appearance that the team Trump is on has succumbed is only an appearance. The team Trump is on has won, against all its enemies. This is plain to all who paid attention over the past four years to the executive orders and declassifications, the department turnovers, impeachment flops, Supreme Court appointment wins, his interactions with military, etc.

This is the lead-up to the takedown. The People are not ready for the takedown, they don't yet hate the targets enough, they don't yet grasp what the targets really are. But soon they will hate them enough because the targets are being compelled to behave so as to show the world what they are.

The soldiers in D.C. know.

There is but one possible outcome.

And having the military's name on it instead of retired Trump's is genius with regard to public acceptance.

He Stood Strong against Woke-Fascism

Lindsay Perigo's picture

He stood strong against Woke-Fascism. Thank you, President Trump, for that and so much more:

"The key to national greatness lies in sustaining and instilling our shared national identity. That means focusing on what we have in common: the heritage that we all share.

"At the center of this heritage is also a robust belief in free expression, free speech, and open debate. Only if we forget who we are, and how we got here, could we ever allow political censorship and blacklisting to take place in America. It’s not even thinkable. Shutting down free and open debate violates our core values and most enduring traditions.

"In America, we don’t insist on absolute conformity or enforce rigid orthodoxies and punitive speech codes. We just don’t do that. America is not a timid nation of tame souls who need to be sheltered and protected from those with whom we disagree. That’s not who we are. It will never be who we are. ..."

My fellow Americans: Four years ago, we launched a great national effort to rebuild our country, to renew its spirit, and to restore the allegiance of this government to its citizens. In short, we embarked on a mission to make America great again — for all Americans.

As I conclude my term as the 45th President of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together. We did what we came here to do — and so much more.

This week, we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous. We extend our best wishes, and we also want them to have luck — a very important word.

I’d like to begin by thanking just a few of the amazing people who made our remarkable journey possible.

First, let me express my overwhelming gratitude for the love and support of our spectacular First Lady, Melania. Let me also share my deepest appreciation to my daughter Ivanka, my son-in-law Jared, and to Barron, Don, Eric, Tiffany, and Lara. You fill my world with light and with joy.

I also want to thank Vice President Mike Pence, his wonderful wife Karen, and the entire Pence family.

Thank you as well to my Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows; the dedicated members of the White House Staff and the Cabinet; and all the incredible people across our administration who poured out their heart and soul to fight for America.

I also want to take a moment to thank a truly exceptional group of people: the United States Secret Service. My family and I will forever be in your debt. My profound gratitude as well to everyone in the White House Military Office, the teams of Marine One and Air Force One, every member of the Armed Forces, and state and local law enforcement all across our country.

Most of all, I want to thank the American people. To serve as your President has been an honor beyond description. Thank you for this extraordinary privilege. And that’s what it is — a great privilege and a great honor.

We must never forget that while Americans will always have our disagreements, we are a nation of incredible, decent, faithful, and peace-loving citizens who all want our country to thrive and flourish and be very, very successful and good. We are a truly magnificent nation.

All Americans were horrified by the assault on our Capitol. Political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as Americans. It can never be tolerated.

Now more than ever, we must unify around our shared values and rise above the partisan rancor, and forge our common destiny.

Four years ago, I came to Washington as the only true outsider ever to win the presidency. I had not spent my career as a politician, but as a builder looking at open skylines and imagining infinite possibilities. I ran for President because I knew there were towering new summits for America just waiting to be scaled. I knew the potential for our nation was boundless as long as we put America first.

So I left behind my former life and stepped into a very difficult arena, but an arena nevertheless, with all sorts of potential if properly done. America had given me so much, and I wanted to give something back.

Together with millions of hardworking patriots across this land, we built the greatest political movement in the history of our country. We also built the greatest economy in the history of the world. It was about “America First” because we all wanted to make America great again. We restored the principle that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Our agenda was not about right or left, it wasn’t about Republican or Democrat, but about the good of a nation, and that means the whole nation.

With the support and prayers of the American people, we achieved more than anyone thought possible. Nobody thought we could even come close.

We passed the largest package of tax cuts and reforms in American history. We slashed more job-killing regulations than any administration had ever done before. We fixed our broken trade deals, withdrew from the horrible Trans-Pacific Partnership and the impossible Paris Climate Accord, renegotiated the one-sided South Korea deal, and we replaced NAFTA with the groundbreaking USMCA — that’s Mexico and Canada — a deal that’s worked out very, very well.

Also, and very importantly, we imposed historic and monumental tariffs on China; made a great new deal with China. But before the ink was even dry, we and the whole world got hit with the China virus. Our trade relationship was rapidly changing, billions and billions of dollars were pouring into the U.S., but the virus forced us to go in a different direction.

The whole world suffered, but America outperformed other countries economically because of our incredible economy and the economy that we built. Without the foundations and footings, it wouldn’t have worked out this way. We wouldn’t have some of the best numbers we’ve ever had.

We also unlocked our energy resources and became the world’s number-one producer of oil and natural gas by far. Powered by these policies, we built the greatest economy in the history of the world. We reignited America’s job creation and achieved record-low unemployment for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, women — almost everyone.

Incomes soared, wages boomed, the American Dream was restored, and millions were lifted from poverty in just a few short years. It was a miracle. The stock market set one record after another, with 148 stock market highs during this short period of time, and boosted the retirements and pensions of hardworking citizens all across our nation. 401(k)s are at a level they’ve never been at before. We’ve never seen numbers like we’ve seen, and that’s before the pandemic and after the pandemic.

We rebuilt the American manufacturing base, opened up thousands of new factories, and brought back the beautiful phrase: “Made in the USA.”

To make life better for working families, we doubled the child tax credit and signed the largest-ever expansion of funding for childcare and development. We joined with the private sector to secure commitments to train more than 16 million American workers for the jobs of tomorrow.

When our nation was hit with the terrible pandemic, we produced not one, but two vaccines with record-breaking speed, and more will quickly follow. They said it couldn’t be done but we did it. They call it a “medical miracle,” and that’s what they’re calling it right now: a “medical miracle.”

Another administration would have taken 3, 4, 5, maybe even up to 10 years to develop a vaccine. We did in nine months.

We grieve for every life lost, and we pledge in their memory to wipe out this horrible pandemic once and for all.

When the virus took its brutal toll on the world’s economy, we launched the fastest economic recovery our country has ever seen. We passed nearly $4 trillion in economic relief, saved or supported over 50 million jobs, and slashed the unemployment rate in half. These are numbers that our country has never seen before.

We created choice and transparency in healthcare, stood up to big pharma in so many ways, but especially in our effort to get favored-nations clauses added, which will give us the lowest prescription drug prices anywhere in the world.

We passed VA Choice, VA Accountability, Right to Try, and landmark criminal justice reform.

We confirmed three new justices of the United States Supreme Court. We appointed nearly 300 federal judges to interpret our Constitution as written.

For years, the American people pleaded with Washington to finally secure the nation’s borders. I am pleased to say we answered that plea and achieved the most secure border in U.S. history. We have given our brave border agents and heroic ICE officers the tools they need to do their jobs better than they have ever done before, and to enforce our laws and keep America safe.

We proudly leave the next administration with the strongest and most robust border security measures ever put into place. This includes historic agreements with Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, along with more than 450 miles of powerful new wall.

We restored American strength at home and American leadership abroad. The world respects us again. Please don’t lose that respect.

We reclaimed our sovereignty by standing up for America at the United Nations and withdrawing from the one-sided global deals that never served our interests. And NATO countries are now paying hundreds of billions of dollars more than when I arrived just a few years ago. It was very unfair. We were paying the cost for the world. Now the world is helping us.

And perhaps most importantly of all, with nearly $3 trillion, we fully rebuilt the American military — all made in the USA. We launched the first new branch of the United States Armed Forces in 75 years: the Space Force. And last spring, I stood at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and watched as American astronauts returned to space on American rockets for the first time in many, many years.

We revitalized our alliances and rallied the nations of the world to stand up to China like never before.

We obliterated the ISIS caliphate and ended the wretched life of its founder and leader, al Baghdadi. We stood up to the oppressive Iranian regime and killed the world’s top terrorist, Iranian butcher Qasem Soleimani.

We recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

As a result of our bold diplomacy and principled realism, we achieved a series of historic peace deals in the Middle East. Nobody believed it could happen. The Abraham Accords opened the doors to a future of peace and harmony, not violence and bloodshed. It is the dawn of a new Middle East, and we are bringing our soldiers home.

I am especially proud to be the first President in decades who has started no new wars.

Above all, we have reasserted the sacred idea that, in America, the government answers to the people. Our guiding light, our North Star, our unwavering conviction has been that we are here to serve the noble everyday citizens of America. Our allegiance is not to the special interests, corporations, or global entities; it’s to our children, our citizens, and to our nation itself.

As President, my top priority, my constant concern, has always been the best interests of American workers and American families. I did not seek the easiest course; by far, it was actually the most difficult. I did not seek the path that would get the least criticism. I took on the tough battles, the hardest fights, the most difficult choices because that’s what you elected me to do. Your needs were my first and last unyielding focus.

This, I hope, will be our greatest legacy: Together, we put the American people back in charge of our country. We restored self-government. We restored the idea that in America no one is forgotten, because everyone matters and everyone has a voice. We fought for the principle that every citizen is entitled to equal dignity, equal treatment, and equal rights because we are all made equal by God. Everyone is entitled to be treated with respect, to have their voice heard, and to have their government listen. You are loyal to your country, and my administration was always loyal to you.

We worked to build a country in which every citizen could find a great job and support their wonderful families. We fought for the communities where every American could be safe and schools where every child could learn. We promoted a culture where our laws would be upheld, our heroes honored, our history preserved, and law-abiding citizens are never taken for granted. Americans should take tremendous satisfaction in all that we have achieved together. It’s incredible.

Now, as I leave the White House, I have been reflecting on the dangers that threaten the priceless inheritance we all share. As the world’s most powerful nation, America faces constant threats and challenges from abroad. But the greatest danger we face is a loss of confidence in ourselves, a loss of confidence in our national greatness. A nation is only as strong as its spirit. We are only as dynamic as our pride. We are only as vibrant as the faith that beats in the hearts of our people.

No nation can long thrive that loses faith in its own values, history, and heroes, for these are the very sources of our unity and our vitality.

What has always allowed America to prevail and triumph over the great challenges of the past has been an unyielding and unashamed conviction in the nobility of our country and its unique purpose in history. We must never lose this conviction. We must never forsake our belief in America.

The key to national greatness lies in sustaining and instilling our shared national identity. That means focusing on what we have in common: the heritage that we all share.

At the center of this heritage is also a robust belief in free expression, free speech, and open debate. Only if we forget who we are, and how we got here, could we ever allow political censorship and blacklisting to take place in America. It’s not even thinkable. Shutting down free and open debate violates our core values and most enduring traditions.
In America, we don’t insist on absolute conformity or enforce rigid orthodoxies and punitive speech codes. We just don’t do that. America is not a timid nation of tame souls who need to be sheltered and protected from those with whom we disagree. That’s not who we are. It will never be who we are.

For nearly 250 years, in the face of every challenge, Americans have always summoned our unmatched courage, confidence, and fierce independence. These are the miraculous traits that once led millions of everyday citizens to set out across a wild continent and carve out a new life in the great West. It was the same profound love of our God-given freedom that willed our soldiers into battle and our astronauts into space.

As I think back on the past four years, one image rises in my mind above all others. Whenever I traveled all along the motorcade route, there were thousands and thousands of people. They came out with their families so that they could stand as we passed, and proudly wave our great American flag. It never failed to deeply move me. I knew that they did not just come out to show their support of me; they came out to show me their support and love for our country.

This is a republic of proud citizens who are united by our common conviction that America is the greatest nation in all of history. We are, and must always be, a land of hope, of light, and of glory to all the world. This is the precious inheritance that we must safeguard at every single turn.

For the past four years, I have worked to do just that. From a great hall of Muslim leaders in Riyadh to a great square of Polish people in Warsaw; from the floor of the Korean Assembly to the podium at the United Nations General Assembly; and from the Forbidden City in Beijing to the shadow of Mount Rushmore, I fought for you, I fought for your family, I fought for our country. Above all, I fought for America and all it stands for — and that is safe, strong, proud, and free.

Now, as I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning. There’s never been anything like it. The belief that a nation must serve its citizens will not dwindle but instead only grow stronger by the day.

As long as the American people hold in their hearts deep and devoted love of country, then there is nothing that this nation cannot achieve. Our communities will flourish. Our people will be prosperous. Our traditions will be cherished. Our faith will be strong. And our future will be brighter than ever before.

I go from this majestic place with a loyal and joyful heart, an optimistic spirit, and a supreme confidence that for our country and for our children, the best is yet to come.

Thank you, and farewell. God bless you. God bless the United States of America.

“Nearly all children nowadays were horrible. What was worst of all was that by means of such organizations as the Spies they were systematically turned into ungovernable little savages, and yet this produced in them no tendency whatever to rebel against the discipline of the Party. ..."

Dobbing in one's relatives, even parents and spouses, for Thought Crimes, was common during Stalin's purges of the 30s (culminating in show trials as phony as yesterday's 2nd impeachment of Orange Man Bad), Hitler's rampages against the Jews, Iron Curtain countries across the board (think East Germany and its Stasi secret police), Mao's Cultural Revolution of the 60s; and, of course is a recurring theme of 1984. Now, under the Woke-Fascist Cancel Culture, instead of burning heretics in the town square, the Woke-Fascists destroy them on medievil (spelling intentional) "social media."

Powerful speech by Matt - he's the only conservative not caving into the commie mob; the only one.

Had vaguely heard that ACT said something about Liddell; infantile. I am not the only chap who hitherto was unaware there was such a thing as Secretary-General of the OECD (and still unaware what it is).

Seymour should pick his battles more carefully - left wingers will play the same trick on him: that ACT by definition is evil and immoral and those associated are to be canceled. Bit hard to rebut now...

I recall a time on solopassion when I was deemed - by definition - beyond the pale. Various people fell to their knees and obediently nodded their heads, sacrificing their dignity, honour, integrity, and respect at the Black Mass Altar of Richard Goode.

Apparently Marxist tactics and pathetic group think was evidence of "individualism", and "objective" thought, and libertarian. Orwellian!

All it actually did was disgrace them in the eyes of family and friends, and none have quite recovered the respect they once had; always have the faint wiff of creepiness about them.

I, by contrast, am even greater than ever - getting messages and emails from the most "interesting" of people Wink .....(but I digress).

You can't have it both ways; you can't support the tactics of the left and plausibly claim to be a freedom lover.

Chicom Collins and Snake Seymour: Controlled Opposition

Lindsay Perigo's picture

There's a Kiwi fellow named Chris Liddell who has apparently been a Trump adviser for the last four years. Orange Man Bad nominated him for the position of Secretary-General of the OECD last year, it seems, with the enthusiastic backing at the time of National and ACT leaders Judith Collins and David Seymour (affectionately known on this forum as Gutless Gormless Goofy, since that is what he is). Now, it seems, both these weasels have withdrawn their support because of the Antifa-(Profa-)hijacked events of Jan 6. Was ever cowardice more craven than this? GGG says:

"The role of the president in encouraging people to go about the protests which turned extremely violent was unconscionable."

So here's a direct question for GGG. The President, prior to the march on the Capitol, speaking to hundreds of thousands of peaceful patriots, enjoined them to: "... peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard." Please explain what is "unconscionable" about that?!

What is unconscionable is that preening, virtue-signalling grandstanders like you, GGG and CCP Collins——who never said a word about Only Black Lives Matter/Profa riotings, arsons, lootings and killings that went on for months (or the takeover by OBLM of NZ institutions such as the NZ School of Music)—are butt-licking the vile media and political establishments in order to score likes on Faecesbook and other Woke-Fascist Big Tech platforms.

You, Chicom Collins and Snake Seymour, are worse than the likes of Jihadi Jacinda Podesta and Golriz Ghahraman. At least they are sincere and open about their evil. You pretend to occupy the moral high ground while competing to surpass them on their low ground.

https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/434444/national-backtracks-on-support-for-trump-s-nz-staffer-chris-liddell

The National Party has rescinded its backing for Chris Liddell to take over as secretary-general of the OECD given the recent rioting at the United States Capitol.

The New Zealand businessman-turned Donald Trump advisor was nominated for the job by the US president last year.

At the time, opposition leader Judith Collins said it was a no-brainer for the government to back Liddell, describing him as highly qualified.

But in a statement issued to RNZ, Collins said the US Capitol riot had rightly tarnished those who incited the violence.

"The rioting that took place in the US Capitol was a disgraceful attack on democracy," Collins said.

"Mr Liddell's ties to the Trump Administration cannot be overlooked here, making it difficult to see how he would be suitable to uphold the OECD's strong commitment to democracy."

In November, Collins said the experienced businessman would work more in New Zealand's interests than anyone else in the role.

Asked at the time if his appointment would be in the country's interests given the Trump administration has undermined the WTO and various global treaties, she said: "I'm sure you'll find that when he's in that job, should he be fortunate enough to get it, he will be looking to the whole of the situation, particularly for New Zealand."

The government has yet to say who it will back for the position, but Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern last year said Cabinet would take into account a range of factors before making its decision.

"We have a wide range of considerations. Citizenship is not the only one," Ardern said.

ACT also reconsiders

National is not the only party backing away from its support for Liddell, with ACT also performing an about-face.

In October last year, ACT deputy leader Brooke van Velden told Stuff the country should be united in supporting "a high-achieving New Zealander" for the international role.

Speaking to RNZ today, ACT leader David Seymour said the party could no longer support Liddell's nomination given "his refusal to denounce the more recent events".

"Up to a point, you can say, look the guy is trying to be professional ... don't blame him for the guy he works for," Seymour said.

"[But] the role of the president in encouraging people to go about the protests which turned extremely violent was unconscionable."

Liddell last week told the NZ Herald he was "horrified" by the riots and "unconditionally" condemned them. Seymour said he had not seen those remarks.

In October, the Green Party urged the government not to support Liddell for the OECD position, saying "Trumpish anti-science, anti-cooperation politics" had no place in international governance.

"Right now, it is literally dangerous to back a man who helped lead America's disastrous Covid-19 response," foreign affairs spokesperson Golriz Ghahraman said on Twitter.

"Aotearoa just overwhelmingly voted for governance by values that would be eroded if a guy like Liddell was the head of a governance body like the OECD."

Digital Reign of Terror

Lindsay Perigo's picture

A freedom-fighter from the UK said this to me via email this morning:

"Age withers the body, quitting withers the soul." Douglas McArthur. I don't aim to quit, but I can't make up my mind where to invest what's left of my energy. I'm so depressed by the ease by which the Dems perverted the electoral process; the collusion or inactivity of so many Republicans; the yellowness of the courts; the involvement of Antifa inciting the Capitol invasion and the consequent misrepresentation of it; and, finally, the brazen lying and censorship of the MSM, that I'm sort of stalled in my tracks. It's going to be a horrible year and prospects for the years ahead are exceedingly bleak. Looks like the US is finished and that the CCP has won a huge victory.

He also drew my attention to the following YouTube video which begins with these words from host Carter Laren:

At the end of last week, both Facebook and Twitter banned a sitting US president for allegedly using their respective platforms to “incite violence.” Although this may come as a surprise to some, it shouldn’t. Radical leftists are sore winners. When they gain power, they’re not gracious, welcoming victors. They’re vengeful hunters fixated on retribution. Rhetorical showboating isn’t just a campaign tactic; they mean it. They double down. From the beginning, the left’s promises to bring “unity” were a form of Orwellian double-speak meaning the exact opposite. Their version of “unity” is an ideologically homogenous populace achieved by stomping on the necks of the “deplorable” opposition. ...

Socialism a good thing? Echh

Jmaurone's picture

"You say "fascism disguised as socialism" you make it sound as if socialism is a good thing; that the fascism is wrapped up in something virtuous!"

What? You don't like socialism? You don't like free stuff? Who doesn't like free stuff?
Or, don't you want other people to have a slice of the pie? Don't you want to share? What are you, some kind of greedy capitalist pig? What are you...SELFISH?

(You see where I'm going with this, right?)

I certainly don't think it's a good thing, nor am I trying to make it sound so. But it's not even my quote; I'm actually quoting Ayn Rand, there (and reportedly Reagan, too). And neither of them thought it was a good thing, either. But Rand went the extra step, philosophically, by bolstering the moral argument for capitalism, because the leftists/socialists had the perception of holding the "moral high ground" (no thanks to "me too" conservatives.) But think of the context in which they were saying it. They knew it was bad, but they knew that it was being SOLD as a good thing by the academics and philosophers. One publisher rejected WE THE LIVING, during the "Red Decade", because "the author didn't understand the Soviet Union." (!) "Fascism= bad, Socialism= Good" is pretty much the post-war atmosphere in the universities. "The Noble experiment" of Russia, and all that, that's it a good idea, but just had been implemented poorly, etc. Hell, when Obama was in, people like Joe Scarborough were coming out and saying things like "if we're going to have socialism, let's have it across the board!" And we're seeing the rotten fruits of that, today, with so-called "Antifa" using the "Antifascist" tag, while now openly advocating for socialism, so that they can implement, you know...fascism.

Rand called it.

The ultimate corruption of our time, the Orwellian quintessence: there is no truth, just a "narrative," and any narrative—including that of rioters, looters, arsonists and killers—is as good as any other. This "narrative" is spewed by Academia, Fake News, brainwashed moronnials, the political elites and all the rest as objective truth, even though, according to them, no such thing as objective truth exists (as a matter of objective truth).

Here is a definitive antidote to this foul and pestilent congregation of evasions. As an atheist I would substitute "truth" for "God" where Lin uses the terms interchangeably.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/...

In posting this on the 1984 thread, I was struck by the exact coincidence between the grotesqueries described by Orwell in the primary post and our current PROFA and Only Black Lives Matter. Admirers of these self-same grotesqueries, remember, are now implementing Ethnic Cleansing at the New Zealand School of Music.

The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretense was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one's will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp. Thus, at one moment Winston's hatred was not turned against Goldstein at all, but, on the contrary, against Big Brother, the Party, and the Thought Police; and at such moments his heart went out to the lonely, derided heretic on the screen, sole guardian of truth and sanity in a world of lies.

Hate Speech

Graham Hill's picture

You are not the only original member to have left so I believe. They were not, to me, what they promised to be. The political underpinnings gave a differing sense of freedom, rather than, it seems in my opinion, freedom of ideas and conclusions based on research. Those who were committed to such, I opine, maybe those who have left. One who has left was a leader in this area and his loss is to be lamented.

It made not a squeak when the MoJ and HRC Clerisy went off line with the public regarding public consultation on the proposed hate speech legislation.

It is a really bad legal idea jurisprudentially and an equally bad social idea to which even some UN Rapporteurs on Free Speech have criticised it.

Karl du Fresne, Chris Trotter, Olivia Pierson and I (I do not rank myself with the foregoing luminaries) wrote calling out the HRC/MoJ's anti Democratic stance. I note that Muriel Newman’s NZCPR recently wrote on the topic in her weekly newsletter.

I sent an article I wrote in 2019 paper I wrote to The Hon Andrew Little and had no answer. FSC was silent about woke VUW School of Music's BLM identity politics approach to European classical music which you raised BUT had preferred in November 2019 to dally with Vaping instead.

I had understood FSC was going to work on hate speech legislation with the Tax Payers Union staff in 2019 but of course the MoJ has not released any details. It will follow Mr Hunt's slavish adoption -more colonialism- of the UK model's idea of "stirring up" which has been a disaster in Scotland.

FSC could be seen "Johnny -come- lately" on the coat tails of the Royal Commission, looking for a good PR opportunity (fair enough) and asking for money when it perhaps ought to have done something earlier rather than waiting for the unprincipled, and all too predictable answer from our PM. Her view exemplifies, to an extent, how leftist oligarchies work.

The Royal Commission, reporting on a tragedy, alas is being despicably and shamelessly used as a political pretext fodder to push for what Labour were always going to do.

We do not seem to have the Cloward and Piven MO yet which is highly advanced, thanks to Obama, and metastasising in the US at present and will flourish under Biden if he makes it on 6 January 2021.

Jihadi Jacinda Podesta Itching to Kill Free Speech

Lindsay Perigo's picture

I keep wanting to take SOLO off-line, at least for Christmas, in order to have a respite from this ghastly World of Woke we are in. Something always happens that makes it impossible NOT to pay attention. Today it's Jacinda Podesta's reiteration of her desperation to criminalise criticism of Islam (or of her or of the Chinese Communist Party) in the wake of the Royal Commission report on the Christchurch mosque massacre. Two things to note: 1) the report makes it clear that the foreign shooter, Tarrant, was able to obtain his weapons only because of the incompetence of the New Zealand Government and the Police, who have now, even in advance of the kind of legislation envisaged here, turned themselves into Thought Police; 2) though the conclusions of the Free Speech Coalition here are superior to its English/Latin ("cease upon," "per say"), I do not advocate supporting them or donating to them. I am/was a member of the steering committee who was quickly sidelined because I called out the corruption that was going on. They are controlled opposition who will simply take your money and dine out on it with lawsuits that go nowhere other than the fattening of the lawyers' wallets. I really don't know what to suggest. I suspect we're beyond the point of no return. Woke-Fascist 1984 is indeed here.

Dear Lindsay,

The Royal Commission's report on the Christchurch terror attack has just been released. In response, the Government is ceasing on the opportunity: Jacinda Ardern has announced she wants to criminalise so-called "hate speech".

Make no mistake Lindsay, this is a big kahuna - the Government want to ram through laws just like we see in Britain - where you can be arrested for 'offensive' tweets, speeches, or emails. That's why I'm emailing to ask you to step up with a donation, so we can mount a fight back.

"Hate Speech" vs "Hate Crime"

Don't be comforted that the Government isn't introducing a new "hate crime" offence per say. "Hate crimes" are when hatred of an enduring characteristic of a person's identity is a motivating factor in an already criminalised offence. We already consider these kinds of factors as a part of sentencing.

Criminalising "hate speech" (what the Government is now planning) introduces an entirely new offence: the speech alone as the offending act, with no further harm required to be proven.

We say that limiting the freedoms of New Zealanders is a cowardly, short-sighted and pointless response to a terror attack designed to make this country more fearful and closed-minded.

The Government has been planning to legislate hate speech for a while, and the use of a national tragedy to cover this move makes it so much more difficult to motivate public opposition to restrictions on free speech.

The new offence will be based on inciting "racial or religious disharmony" including by intent to "stir up" or maintain "insulting communications". Depending on the final wording of the section, we say that is a dangerously low threshold.

The UK has seen what happens when vague, far-reaching powers to police speech are implemented:

a blogger is arrested and charged for causing "gross offence" for sharing a video of his dog doing a Nazi salute.
a journalist is investigated by the Metropolitan Police for a comment made by his guest deemed racist.
and 120,000 "non-crime hate incidents" are recorded, which put people's jobs and livelihoods in jeopardy despite no crime being committed.
This isn't dystopian fiction. This isn't 1984. This is the reality of hate speech laws.

We have the opportunity to avoid this nightmare, but only if New Zealanders and our politicians get the message that criminalising speech will not make people safer.

Lindsay, tomorrow we will be sitting down to plan a major campaign to convince the public that hate speech laws are dangerous - and that Christchurch should not be used as a child to erode our freedoms.

But we can't do it without your support. Donate now, so we know what we have what it takes to win this fight to protect freedom.

Pleased - relieved - someone else is saying what I have been saying: NZ is rooted unless there is a 180 degree change in policy.

I am sure most of you either don't believe me - or ignore me - about how close we are to the cliff; close we are to doing a "Thelma and Louise".

Perhaps you'll listen to Douglas?

Notice it's reminiscent of several solopassion.com posts I have made in the last 7 or 8 months?

Goff said it's disappointing

Goff said it's disappointing that members of the Mt Roskill church were sceptical about Covid-19 and held a meeting while level 3 restrictions were in place.

"We've all signed up for the rules."

Beck had an interesting editorial today. Watched it live on his website (and a couple of bits are chopped out).

Thoughtful, worth listening to.

Does anyone else think that scarf looks rather poofy? haha! I love Glenn, but ...come on; (wear a suit)

Cov-ID2020

Bruno's picture

The globalists' most outrageous attack on the world yet - the cov-ID2020 plandemic.

Plandemic + riots + "colored revolutions" - all at once, the globalists are going all-out with their attacks on the human race.

TRUMP 2020 will be, and has to be, the SOLID BRICK WALL these maggots must smash into in order to restore some semblance of sanity in this fallen world.

We Are at War with Eurasia

Lindsay Perigo's picture

Tucker points out that the WHO head, whose shills include the unelected Marxist Prime Minister of New Zealand, has let the cat out of the bag. There can NEVER be any going back to the way things were. That's the point of it all. "Both [the Communist China Virus and global warming] are useful pretexts for mass social control."

We are at war with Eurasia:

Oh

Okay - NZ herald - but got buried quickly; have to search for it to find it.....yet they have numerous stories from days ago still easy to spot.

Shows we aren't paranoid, aren't making all this up.

In Judith's defence: she has to govern - from either October 2020 or October '23 (and for at least 9 years), whereas Leighton Baker doesn't.

It would be a bit like ruling out entering a war....and then an enemy warship sails into the Hauraki gulf.

It was illegal for 9 days then became legal when the right Act, from 1956, was invoked—and even when illegal was still the right thing to do, according to the Court, two of whom are wimmin and, I imagine, Woke. The pusillanimous party formerly known as "Crusher" should be advocating no more lockdowns. New Conservative has announced No More Lockdowns as its policy:


PRESS RELEASE

18 Aug 2020
No More Lockdowns

New Conservative is committed to no more lockdowns if it is in Government after the election.

The current government lockdown strategy has been a demonstrable failure as it is impossible to eradicate or eliminate something that is rampant worldwide.

Every lockdown pushes more people out of work, closes more businesses, and sends the country closer to financial ruin without diminishing the chances of future Covid outbreaks.

New Zealand needs to move away from elimination, which is both unachievable and unsustainable, and work on minimisation.

Minimisation allows schools and businesses to remain open, supports people to stay at home if sick, protects the vulnerable, encourages good hygiene, continues testing, but allows life in New Zealand to continue.

"As a remote Island Nation we have advantages in regard to border controls and quarantine," says Leighton Baker, New Conservative Leader. "Our relatively sparse population means Covid spread can be restricted and our reliance on private transport means we are less likely to contaminate others."

New Conservative is committed to leading New Zealand through Covid, not destroying it because of Covid, and believes that lockdowns are short-term reactions with long-term negative outcomes.

It’s time to free New Zealand.

Case anybody thinks exaggeration is taking place....

I was just reading in the Daily Mail the Court has ruled lockdown was illegal. However, the story doesn't appear in the NZ media!

Channel 1 news, channel 3 news, NZ Herald, news talk - none mention it on their websites Shock

This is both shocking and creepy. They won't dare run a king hit story against the sainted Jacinda.

The government committed a major crime against every single person and the media do not think it a story. This is chilling.

I am sure many people - especially those living abroad - think this has just been libertarians overreacting, but by golly hope you now, at long last, see the point we've been making.

Great news...

TV ratings for the Demoscum Notional Klanbake are down 30% over 2016. No one cares what they say.

I have only seen a couple of (embarrassing) clips Glenn Beck showed on his programme today from Michael Robinson opps, I mean Michelle Obamarx - cringey.

As Joe would say...

One must not question

PhilipD's picture

One must not question anything.

Will we comply with the extended lockdown? Heather du Plessis-Allan pondered in a recent NZ Herald article. Most likely we will she decides.

The mere asking of the question however enraged ex-union bully-girl and soon to be ex-MP Clare Curran (who, deliciously, will always be most famous for her "To the best of my recollection, um, ah, ah, I haven't, um, I haven't used my, um I've answered um OIA, ah, ah, OIA responses and personal, um and parliamentary questions correctly and to the best of my recollection, um, ah, you know, that, that has, that's what I've done," question time meltdown.

"Are you encouraging people not to comply?," she asked Heather, despite (unfortunately) there being no such suggestion in the article.

And same day Sean Plunket says he will be running this poll: 'If testing positive costs you your liberty, would you still get a COVID test?' And asking these questions: Are we about to see the return of iwi roadblocks and are they needed and how legal are they?

Neale Jones, a political lobbyist and ex-Chief of Staff to Labour Leaders Jacinda Ardern and Angry Andrew Little isn't having it.

"We wouldn't tolerate this sort of behaviour during war time. Worth questioning whether we should tolerate it now," he said.

Jones and Curran, both odious, but with plenty of support for their positions.

Locked down all this time...

Thanks for that AIER article, Linz. I didn't realize NZ had been under a stringent lockdown already. When I saw the headlines about how well NZ was doing, I thought it was because they DIDN'T lockdown, and were only now changing course. This makes more sense (sadly...)

Comrade Ardern's Woke-Fascism

Lindsay Perigo's picture

Upward-inflecting, fry-quacking Marxist Jacinda, who oozes faux sincerity in the exact same way Comrade Kamala does, is called out for her totalitarianism, masquerading Orwellianly under a guise of "caring" and "kindness":

Camelot is now under police-state rule yet again. Road blocks. Delayed elections. After four cases! We await videos of police tackling people to the ground, commandos breaking down doors, restrictions on hoarding groceries, a brutal contact-tracing regime, fines and jails for daring to gather with friends, and all the concomitant side effects of lockdowns: drug overdoses, alcoholism, depression, and suicide.

Safe is not the first word to come to mind in Ardern the Magnificent’s safespace, where cops are a greater threat to the public than Covid-19.

And yet the virus will stay to vex the country. This will happen no matter the heaps of praise that Ardern the Holy receives from the New York Times.
