From my Sept 10th, 2010 blog: The 4th Precept
We all should be familiar with Orwell’s 3 main Thought control precepts as put forward in in his book, 1984.
If you have never read it. Do so. Immediately.
It can change your life. I know it did mine.
But those precepts used by the Ministry of Truth were:
“”War is Peace”
“Freedom is Slavery”
“Ignorance is Strength”
And I think the Democrats and especially Obama have come up with a new one.
FEAR IS HOPE
Because they are constantly talking about hope. But all they do is spread fear.
So Fear must therefore be Hope.
“He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”-Orwell.
And since the liberals view of the past decade is one of total evil and you should fear that evil coming back, and you should have hope for a brighter, more vibrant America than letting that evil back in, Fear is Hope.
“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act”-Orwell
And there can’t be more deceit going on now than in recent memory.
“It’s still fear versus hope; the past versus the future,” Obama said from Cleveland, Ohio Sept 8th 2010, “It’s still a choice between sliding backward and moving forward. That’s what this election is about. That’s the choice you’ll face in November.”
“There were no new ideas. There was just the same philosophy we already tried for the last decade – the same philosophy that led to this mess in the first place.”
NOW: “The Republican plan says that what’s been standing in the way between us and full employment are laws that keep companies from polluting as much as they want,” Obama said in a speech at the regional airport in Asheville, N.C., on Monday. “On the other hand, our plan [Obama’s plan] puts teachers, construction workers, firefighters and police officers back on the job.” (you non-union type- 88% of the populace, especially can go f*ck yourself)
“My plan says we’re going to put teachers back in the classroom, construction workers back to work rebuilding America, rebuilding our schools, tax cuts for small businesses, tax cuts for hiring veterans, tax cuts if you give your worker a raise,” said Obama. “That’s my plan. Then you’ve got their plan, which is, let’s have dirtier air, dirtier water, less people with health insurance. So far at least, I feel better about my plan.”
VP Biden in his infinite capacity for sageness said that if you don’t pass the Jobs Bill (that the Senate Democrats have voted down twice by the way) you’ll increase rapes and murders!
“Do you regret using the rape reference to describe Senate opposition” to the bill, Jason Mattera asked Biden as he left a rally with police unions and others who have faced the budget ax in recent months.
“I didn’t use … no, no, no,” Biden responded. “Let’s get it straight, guy. Don’t screw around with me. Let’s get it straight.”
“You didn’t use a rape reference,” said Mattera, of the conservative news organization Human Events.
“No, let me explain,” Biden said, pointing toward Mattera. “I said rape was up three times in Flint. Those are the numbers. Go look at the numbers. Murder is up; rape is up; burglary is up. That’s what I said.”
“And if the Republicans don’t pass this bill, then rape will continue to rise?” the reporter asked.
“Murder will continue to rise; rape will continue to rise; all crime will continue to rise,” Biden said.
Asked by Mattera whether it was appropriate to use such language, Biden scoffed and walked away (actually you can hear one of his handlers say “that’s enough” and obviously pull him away).
Beside the grossness of the comments the facts are HE’S LYING! Flat out. Bold-Faced 100% LYING.
But does he care? Does the Liberal Media Care? Nope.
Because if you don’t vote for them, you’re a racist and now you want women raped and people murdered.
But they aren’t fearmongering.
Biden: “In 2008, when Flint had 265 sworn officers on their police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city. In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes – just to pick two categories – climbed to 229. In 2011, you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don’t rectify it…And God only knows what that number would have been had we not been able to get a little bit of help.”
Actually, FBI data reports there were just 201 officers in Flint in 2008, not 265. But that aside, if Biden’s hypothesis that more police = less crime is accurate, then the years Flint had more cops on the street should also be the years it had lower crime rates.
But the statistics show it’s not that simple. FBI data shows Flint had 258 police officers in 2006, and 261 in 2007. But according to CityData.com, which compiles crime rate data from across the country, the city of Flint had a higher “crime index” in 2006 and 2007 than it did in 2008 –despite the fact the number of police officers dropped significantly in 2008.
When you compare 2006 to 2008, you find the city had more murders (54 compared to 32), more rapes (143 compared to 103), more assaults (2,246 compared to 1,476) and more auto thefts (1,521 to 909). In other words, the crime rate in Flint isn’t necessarily linked to the number of police in the city. Based on the numbers, Biden’s argument falls flat. (commentary)
I also grew up there in the 1970’s when the population was twice as large as it is now. So Joe, you’re full of fearmongering crap as usual.
Facts never matter to Liberals if they can scare you into doing what they want you to do, which let them run your life for you.
Oh, and Harry, what kind of Jobs were we talking about anyhow?
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday indicated Congress needs to worry about government jobs more than private-sector jobs, and that this is why Senate Democrats are pushing a bill aimed at shoring up teachers and first-responders.
“It’s very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine (yeah, 8% unemployment or higher for nearly 3 years is “fine”); it’s the public-sector jobs where we’ve lost huge numbers, and that’s what this legislation is all about,” Reid said on the Senate floor.
Because those are union loyalists and apparatchiks they need more of so that they can vote for them. More Government bureaucrats is good. After all, Washington DC is the richest metropolitan area in America now and crony capitalism/socialism is “fine” as long as it’s the right people, government union people. 🙂
CNBC’s John Harwood: “Yesterday at a press conference one of my colleagues asked the president to respond to something Mitt Romney said. The president said, ‘I didn’t realize you were a spokesman for Mitt Romney.’ Is the White House — you feeling — the president feeling under siege from events right now?”
Daley didn’t deal with the question, so Harwood pressed him a bit. “Why would the president respond that way to a reporter, though?” Harwood asked.
“I don’t think it was a colleague from your network,” (it was Satan itself- FOX) Daley said, “but a colleague from another network.” (they who shall not be named!) And then Daley added this: “And — sometimes as you — I know it may surprise people, some people that there are certain people in the media who do seem at times to carry the water for certain — piece of the political spectrum.” (Other than Liberals, imagine that! How evil! :))
Obama, it seems, is under the impression he deserves veneration and reverence from all quarters and all institutions. He hasn’t received that, including from professionals like ABC’s Jake Tapper, and Obama seems to delight in critiquing the press, perhaps secretly wishing he was Howard Kurtz instead of the commander-in-chief. But it is Fox News for whom Obama and his team have special contempt. For them, Fox is clearly “the enemy,” to be hated and beaten. For those who doubt this verdict, it’s worth recalling the extraordinary campaign against Fox News carried about by Obama’s then communications director, Anita Dunn, which even Sam Stein of the Huffington Post characterized as a “brutal denunciation.” One can only imagine the howls of protest we would have heard from the fourth estate if, say, Karen Hughes had so explicitly and publicly targeted a news network during the Bush presidency. But in this instance, Dunn’s “War on Fox” was met mostly by silence and a shrug of the shoulders.
What we have seen exposed in the Obama White House is a vein of vengeance antithetical to the image put forward by Obama in 2008 – but fully consistent with what one would expect from a man well-versed in the Chicago Way. (commentary)
And after all, it’s Not his Fault! :0
And giving into FEAR is your ONLY HOPE.
Fear is THEIR ONLY HOPE.
So Be prepared for Fright Night 2012 to get much, much scarier.
Harry Reid said Republicans are calling the bill a “failure” because they are “using a different benchmark for success than we are.”
Yeah, they’re using the private sector where jobs generate revenue for taxes to pay for all the nonsense Reid spouts.
Government workers are not producers in the sense of the production we need to get the economy going. But they are voters. This is an attempt to keep them in the Democratic corral long enough to get Democrats re-elected. Then Harry probably won’t care very much again.
Remember, when Obama was calling for his jobs bill to be given priority, Harry Reid was on the Senate floor expounding on the virtue of … bike paths (and, naturally, calling for government to pay for them).
Ever get the idea that we’re all now serfs on a huge plantation paying for the whims of our “leaders”. (Bruce McQuain)
The Democrats sure think so, and they want 4 more years or else!
