Truth Team aka Ministry of Truth, Welcome to the age of Big Brother, Obama lies equals truth, Truth equals lies, God bless George Orwell

“”You’re a traitor!” yelled the boy. “You’re a thought criminal!””…George Orwell, “1984″

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”…Shakespeare, Hamlet

I saw this coming early in 2008. This is why I have quoted Orwell so often.

From the Propaganda Ministry of Obama for America, promoting their latest Orwellian effort, Truth Team in emails:

“Friend –

If the Republican primaries have taught us anything, it’s that this is no ordinary election.

Instead of relying on differences of opinion, the GOP candidates are launching attacks based on lies. We can either sit back, or fight back. And we’re choosing to fight back.

In the past few months, you signed up to be a part of AttackWatch — the team that’ll be on the front lines in defending the President’s record.

I’m excited to share that now there are two more ways to do that. Today, we released a revamped version of the AttackWatch website, along with two new efforts.

The first is called KeepingGOPHonest, which will be your resource for fact-checking the Republicans when they misrepresent themselves. The other is called KeepingHisWord, and here you can find quick, easy-to-share summaries of President Obama’s accomplishments right alongside what he promised he’d do.

Together, these three resources will serve what we’re calling the Truth Team, a network of supporters like you who say they want to play a key role in fighting back with the truth in this election.

Check out the new Truth Team site.

As Election Day gets closer, we’re going to start sending regular updates on the latest news from the site. Consider it your one-stop shop for how we’re keeping this election based in the truth — and ways you can help spread the word.

Since you’re already a part of this, I’m curious to get your feedback on the new site and the stories we’re covering. This is your resource, and we want to make sure it’s as helpful as possible.

Read through the site, kick the tires, and let me know what you think at truthteam@barackobama.com:

http://my.barackobama.com/Truth-Team

I’m excited about these new changes — and I hope you are, too. With your help, we’re going to hold the GOP accountable whenever we need to from now until November.

Thank you for being a part of the team that fights back.

Stay tuned,

Bill Clinton, the master of “Doublespeak”, called for a Ministry of Truth in 2011.

From InfoWars May 19, 2011.

“Bill Clinton Calls For Internet ‘Ministry of Truth’”

“Mr Bill “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” Clinton, a man who knowingly lied to the nation on live television at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, has called for the creation of an Internet ‘ministry of truth’ style organization that would be run by the federal government or the UN to address “misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet.”

Couching the idea in the kind of doublespeak rhetoric that would make George Orwell roll in his grave, Clinton said that the agency would have to be “independent” and “transparent,” but that it would be created and run by the federal government – a complete oxymoron.
The former president said that the organization “Would have to be an independent federal agency that no president could countermand or anything else because people wouldn’t think you were just censoring the news and giving a different falsehood out.”

No matter how many fluffy, friendly and democratic words he attaches to the proposal, Clinton is basically calling for the creation of a state-run media outlet in the mould of Communist China. He says it should operate like, “National Public Radio or BBC or something like that, except it would have to be really independent and they would not express opinions, and their mandate would be narrowly confined to identifying relevant factual errors.”

In other words, as his wife Hillary bemoaned recently, the US military-industrial complex is “losing the information war” to independent media outlets and something needs to be done to redress the balance because too many people are stumbling across that habitual irritant to the power elite – the truth.
Despite admitting that the organization would have “no credibility whatever, particularly with a lot of the people who are most active on the internet,” Clinton said that such an agency was necessary to counter “misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet,” reports Politico.

This is Cass Sunstein’s “cognitive infiltration” on steroids. Harvard law professor Sunstein, Obama’s information czar, has demanded websites be mandated by law to link to opposing information or that pop ups containing government propaganda be forcibly included on political blogs.

In a 2008 article published in the Journal of Political Philosophy, Sunstein outlined a plan for the government to stealthily infiltrate groups that pose alternative theories on historical events via “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine” those groups.
On page 14 of Sunstein’s January 2008 white paper entitled “Conspiracy Theories,” he proposed that “under imaginable conditions” the government “might ban conspiracy theorizing” and could “impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories.”

Sunstein’s definition of “conspiracy theories” includes ideas shared by the majority of American people, such as the notion that the JFK assassination occurred as part of a wider plot, as well as the belief that the threat of global warming has been hyped by governments and global institutions. Both of these ideas would be examples of thought crime under Sunstein’s regime.”

    Talk about a short list!

  2. Chilling Letter from Proctor & Gamble to Obama
    Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America ‘s true living legends- an Acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world’s highest
    Rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize Him as the foremost leader in change management… Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as “partnering. Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years; made corporate history.
    AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA
    Dear President Obama:

    You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

    You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

    You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no Visible signs of support.

    You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

    You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

    You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.

    You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.

    You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

    You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ crowd and deliver this message abroad.

    You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

    You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

    You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

    You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

    You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.

    You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

    You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

    You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

    You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

    You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh’s, Hannitys, O’Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

    You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

    Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

    This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it.
    Big surprise. Since it hit the Internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men do nothing.. It’s happening right now.

  3. I would like to thank the folks at Truth Team, aka, Ministry of Truth for providing a forum where we can discuss such topics as the real unemployment rate and how many Americans have been pushed out of the workforce. I will, of course, present more facts on this subject and wait for a repudiation or confirmation from Truth Team.

    Judge Andrew Napolitano gave a final, inspirational monologue on Monday night discussing the founding of our country and the importance of liberty. He began his conclusion with this statement:

    “Whether you believe we are the highest order of natural selection, or whether you believe, as I do, that we were created by God in his image and likeness, you know in your heart that these ‘natural yearnings’, as St. Thomas Aquinas and Thomas Jefferson called them, are our natural rights, are apart of our humanity and cannot long be denied us.”

  18. bob strauss | February 14, 2012 at 10:05 am | I heard recently it was 10,000 per month. That is one of the reasons that consumer spending is going to be hard to get it to pick up in the near future. When people get in their 50′s and early 60′s they normally start pulling back on personal spending. Kids have left the nest, more focus on funding retirement accounts, saving for legacy, planning for medical expenses, etc.

    There are people who make a living focusing on spending habits of us older folks.

    *********************************

    Pat1789, what makes us think that money is going to win the election?
    It takes voter turnout, and already over 60% of the Republicans are voting for someone other than Romney. Without passion, the Repub voters will not turn out, and the majority have no passion for Romney.

    When Romney describes himself as “severely conservative”, that should give people pause for thought. Usually “severely” is used to describe an illness or something bad. It seems he has trouble learning to be something other than a moderate. Just my opinion.

  29. Pat 1789
    I believe you have nailed it….unfortunate as it is, concerning the Republican candidates. It appears to be connected to this current phenomenon of big government politics in general, and within the Republican party specifically. Not that it hasn’t been in the past , but the line separating the Democrats from the Republicans is slowly being eroded and obscured to the point where we can’t tell where one leaves off and the other begins. It makes one hope, at least that the end games for each are different. Couple the foregoing facts with the full-scale shift to the left by the Democrat party and you have a very frustrating set of choices, if there are indeed any choices. I find myself considering the lesser of the evils by scale and electability as opposed to platform. I suppose we will need to find a way to let the Republican party know how dissatisfied we are. I think that might be a way that petitions could indeed serve a useful purpose.

  30. SueQ,

    I apologize for not being able to respond on the last thread to your question/statement. I will bring it forward (if ok). The general question is whether I will personally vote to support the GOP, as is… I said no.

    …”William, maybe you are an optimist or maybe you are just foolish. I don’t believe our country can survive another 4 years of this man. If you are willing to sit home just to prove a point, and if there are many like you, then God help us. Praise the Lord and pass the ammo.”

    ++++++++++++++

    I am not sure whether I am being Optimistic or simply pragmatic at this time. My trained analytical side says contemporary engagement of politics needs to change 180 degrees. My history tells me – that isn’t going to happen with current politics. Therefore, it becomes a Lose-Lose situation for America and its Citizens, of which I am a direct part of.

    Having said that, the question then becomes as it always has in the past. How does a civil society change its representatives responses to abide by its laws when they refuse or ignore? Well, certainly many Societies faced the same question – some overcame and some did not. But we know this. It was not until the near demise until such changes occurred. I am being extreme? Probably not. If we cannot survive 48 months of Obama until total destruction of America – beyond repair, then we cannot survive anything as we are too fragile . Simply voting for anyone with different political namesake with the expectations of change without encompassing valued and planned strategic plans for correction, is simplistic and outright belligerent. It is an insult to say the least.

    Am I a fool for not supporting such? I don’t think so.

    As Albert Einstein said: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. ” Just vote for anyone with an “R” next to their name ring a bell?

  32. William
    I, and for that matter a host of others, currently share your angst. Once under a Marxist govrnment however, you will truly have a set of choices similar to what the original colonists had …no choices. Speaking for myself, when faced with “something” as opposed to “nothing”, I will take the “something” every time. I don’t have to like it. Maybe it could be this simple, at least for the present…then begin to build on the toehold you have e stablished.
    For the present at least, there appear to be no other choices, but the all or nothing approach will produce exactly that…nothing. IMHO

  33. another P.S.
    I believe, under the present circumstances, that we should consider whatever administration we end up with as a result of the next election, to be an interim administration. It will give us a respite during which time we might even be able to field a third party.

  34. william,
    I also feel that if the rule of law is ignored it will set a precedent and who knows what the next non-NBC will be like…worse than barry?
    There is absolutely no reason why congress, conservative personalities and candidates do not go after barry’s eligibility and crimes….UNLESS there is a reason and they don’t want us to know what that reason is. That’s the part that scares me…if they are overlooking all of this but won’t tell us why….what’s the end game? At least with barry it’s obvious he’s trying to destroy this country. But put someone in less obvious then we’re really in trouble.

  35. Send this to everyone you know…..the TRUTH MUST GET OUT…….

    Interview with Susan Lindauer, CIA Agent Jailed for Wanting to Tell the Truth

    Posted by Steve Beckow

    http://the2012scenario.com/2011/09/interviews-with-susan-lindauer-cia-agent-jailed-for-wanting-to-tell-the-truth/

    If you’ve wanted to know what the ordinary CIA agent who wasn’t part of the 9/11 plot was doing and thinking after 9/11, Susan Lindauer can tell you. Her handler, after 9/11, told her the CIA was not going to conduct an investigation but was really aiming simply to keep the people calm. When she began digging into the matter, she landed up in prison. Her handler, by contrast, received a $13 million payoff. Author of Extreme Prejudice. Start at 7 min. mark.

    Video write-up:

    “Amazing testimony of ex CIA Asset Susan Lindauer. 5 years of legal troubles, 1 year in prison for daring to tell the truth. During the Bush era the top controllers of the governmental mechanics of Defense and national Security wanted to have a war with Iraq. They got their wish and anyone who got in the way were dealt with severely no matter if they violated a law or not. Not brought to trial she was jailed under the ‘Patriot Act’ which amounted to summary punishment outside a verdict in a court of law. She was jailed without a trial. This is part of her story that is just unfolding now. She has waited 10 years to tell it.”

    More if you want more….

  36. William,
    Again, overly simplistic I’m sure, but it seems like your saying “Let’s burn this house down… it’s nothing but a sh!t shack. It’s so cold and it creaks and the roof leaks, and it costs a fortune to heat.” Meanwhile, your wife is saying “It may not be much but it’s our home. How will we shelter ourselves and our children? Where will we go? Maybe with some determination we can restore it to it’s former glory.”

    You are correct, historically, and otherwise. I am incorrect. debate solved.

  45. An excerpt below from this article…….the GRINCH happened to be in CALIFORNIA….

    Gingrich: I’m Not Going Anywhere

    http://washington.cbslocal.com/2012/02/14/gingrich-im-not-going-anywhere/

    “Gingrich edged out of a potentially embarrassing exchanged with Orly Taitz, a California dentist who pioneered the “birther” movement questioning whether President Barack Obama had been born in the United States and therefore eligible to be president. Taitz suggested to Gingrich that he should pursue the debunked birther agenda as a way to propel his campaign.

    “Somebody who wouldn’t be good enough, who wouldn’t be certified to pick tomatoes or clean bathrooms is sitting in the White House,” Taitz told Gingrich, to gasps and some applause from the tea party audience.

    Gingrich demurred and said, “I think I have enough issues to debate Obama with.”

  46. JJ, I agree. It’s now personal. VERY! And this! This where they have us…

    “The girl’s mother — who said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her daughter from retaliation…”

    This is how they get away with it!

  47. William
    I take that back…the colonists did have choices….none of them good. In retrospect, they chose to take one hell of a risk. Point being, they didn’t simply give up. I see us being moved beneath the power of a tyrant. Once complete, we will get to experience a similar political environment as those colonists. Are you saying you would prefer that we get to that point? i.e. Tyrant=Tree of Liberty=Revolution…Right now we still have better choices…just sayin’

  48. Corrupt Senator Dies…..LOL :)

    While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator (that may be redundant) was tragically hit by a car and died.

    His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

    “Welcome to heaven,” says St.. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”

    “No problem, just let me in,” says the Senator.

    “Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”

    “Really?, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the Senator.

    “I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”

    And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

    The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.

    In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

    Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

    They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

    Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.

    They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.

    Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.

    The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where

    St. Peter is waiting for him, “Now it’s time to visit heaven…”

    So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

    “Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”

    The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”

    So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell…

    Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.

    He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls to the ground.

    The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

    “I don’t understand,” stammers the Senator. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”

    The devil smiles at him and says,
    “Yesterday we were campaigning,

    Today, you voted..”

  50. With my giving and yielding to all those that believe simply voting for anyone with an “R” next to their ballot name, somehow improves anything, I simply bow out with a few quotes.

    ..”There is no middle ground when taking the hill. You either stay in the foxhole or fight to the finish. Turning back just gets you shot in the back – and no one wants to finish as a coward.”

    ….”Covetousness like Jealously, when it has taken root, never leaves a person, but with their life. Cowardice is the dread of What Will Happen.
    …Epictetus

    lastly, ““A courageous foe is better than a cowardly friend.”

    I am no fool, nor a coward, neither will I support such.

  51. …while reading the Gingrich article a thought occured to me. As the Republican players are all so much alike, perhaps we might consider, as Orly Taitz did, supplying them with a little addditional material upon which to build a more distinct platform. Although I do not support Orly in any way, I do admire her tenacity and her ability to get the issues to the forefront. I also feel that Gingrich did the proper thing, politically, by his not taking up the issue in that particular forum. Orly speaks for Orly, not for the Tea Party or anyone else. Her blundering has made her a pariah and politial suicide for any serious candidate.
    I think that anyone at this site for any length of time knows that politics is a nasty, dirty business and an arena where only the strong are going to survive. That would imply having the will, the wherewithall, and the connections, to do what all the candidates know is necessary to win. A record of achievement, coupled with a solid platform I believe, will ultimately be what sells in this contest. Rhetoric alone, whether it sounds good or not, will not be enough.

  53. William,

    Maybe you misunderstood my analogy. I’m not ready at this point to “burn the house down”. You are much more learned than I am, and as a result you have many more resources to quote from. I simply go by my heart and my life’s experiences. I ultimately will vote ABO in 2012. Yes, I will most likely hold my nose but I believe our Republic WILL be restored. It must be. That is all I have to say.

  54. SueQ
    There is nothing wrong with holding your nose to vote…as long as you have a valid, strategic reason for doing so. Conversely, if one simply votes a candidate with an “R”, absent a good reason, they are merely perpetuating the apathy that got us here in the first place.

  55. SueQ
    P.S….it’s not so much about what you are doing but about why you are doing it…same goes for voting for a candidate that has no chance of winning, just because you think he has a great platform. This time, more than any time in our lifetime, every vote is going to count. Don’t forget, we also have to overcome voter fraud.

  56. Failure to vote is a vote for Obamacare. You may not like ANY of the candidates – but they all said they would repeal Obamacare. If Obamacare takes wing, we are hosed. William, I don’t get it. I ceratinly hope none of my three college kids take on that philosophy. I have a hell of a time convincing them that their vote matters, but I would NEVER tell them to boycott a vote for what amounts to pouting.

  57. coldwarvet…..NO ONE is going to take on the birther issue…..pure and simple….they will be run out on a rail! The GOP and the DNC are all the same…..ONE SNAKE….TWO HEADS to keep us divided…..that’s all!

    IF WE THE PEOPLE don’t do something to END the two party system then NOTHING will ever change….Dr. Paul is the ONLY ONE running who is NOT a part of the corrupt system and is standing up for personal liberty and getting back to the Constitution….he is the ONLY ONE with the record to prove it too….yet many here are still smearing this great American hero and the sheeple are still listening to the MEDIA WHORES and still playing the PARTY game….this is even after all the proof that things do NOT change when you elect a STATUS QUO THUG from either party…….and trust me….the DOC and his family are being marginalized for a reason….it is because he is FINALLY making waves and awakening the masses…..too bad most here at this blog are still asleep! Guess when they come after you there will be NO ONE left to speak up for you!

    As Niemoller would have said it,

    “THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
    and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.

    THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
    and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

    THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
    and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

    THEN THEY CAME for me
    and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

  58. Media Matters becomes the Rev. Wright for the 2012 campaign. What happens if it does? Same as what happened in 2008—-NOTHING. Wright made no difference at all except to the few conservative pundits who talked about him. Obama suffered nothing adverse to his election from sitting in this radical’s church for 20 years. His big machine minions saw to that and they will again because the wonderful GOP will not do a thing to make this an issue. We need to remember that the only way we defeat Obama is by voting him out so overwhelmingly that there can be no doubt about the results. imo.

  59. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE….Let’s get this man elected…..

    another P.S.
    I believe, under the present circumstances, that we should consider whatever administration we end up with as a result of the next election, to be an interim administration. It will give us a respite during which time we might even be able to field a third party.
    *****************************************
    You rather express my sentiments, coldwarvet. This election will only be the beginning – like the first ropes sent down to the abyss of a well to rescue a child who will perish otherwise. We didn’t get into this mess in one election and we won’t get out of it in one.

    When I reflect on history and the takeover of nations by the Communists, I have grave thoughts about our doing nothing in Nov. The climate that is being created today by outward circumstances – i.e., despair and discouragement – are exactly what our enemies desire.

    Let’s consider the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. I imagine that some of those citizens would have given anything – ANYTHING – to have one more day of freedom before the complete takeover. More recently we must consider Cambodia, Cuba, and others. When the boom was lowered and the killing began – yes, the KILLING – because that is what Marxists do when then gain complete control, I imagine that those patriots would have sacrificed much to have a few more weeks to regroup, to plan before it became too late to do anything.

    We have to think very seriously about these things. Sometimes idealism must momentarily take a back seat when our very survival is at stake. When the D-day arrives there will be no chance to revolt – at least no viable chance. It will be too late. That day must be postponed as long as possible while we endeavor to save the Union.

  63. This election can only be the beginning if Dr. Paul is elected….more of the same will be the END…that’s what MITTENS, INsantorum and the GRINCH will provide….THE END!

    jacqlynsmith,

    I’d just like to comment that I like some of the links you post, and I too am a Ron Paul advocate.

    I would criticize you for calling the other candidates names. I understand that these are your comments, and you are entitled to call them what you wish, but I believe it is a “turn off”, and does Dr Paul no good when you disrespect the other candidates.

    It is my view that name calling is used by the desperate, like Pat.

    Just my opinion.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And you know what they say about opinions……I have even better names for them but I take it easy on the sheeple here!

    I have ZERO respect for MITTENS the money laundering THUG…or NEWTard for his immorality and globalist BULLcrap LIES…..INsantorum is a WARMONGERING FREAK big government FRAUD…..this is why I give them those names and NO ONE here should respect them either as they are part of a system that continues to steal our freedoms on a daily basis all the while LINING their pockets with your hard earned money……that my friend is why they deserve the names that I and many others give them…..Ron Paul gets called many names at this blog that he doesn’t deserve so turn about is fair play….try calling those folks out next time instead of a fellow LIBERTY LOVER!!!
