“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over” “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”
Joseph Goebbels, MiniProp for Hitler’s Third Reich
"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is **tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.** It works the same for any country." Herman Goering to Gustave Gilbert at Nuremberg, 18 April, 1946
Boy, the New Reich certainly learned from its masters, didn't it.
Oh man, Obama is going to be really pissed when he learns about this.
"Transparency and Open Government
Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies
SUBJECT: Transparency and Open Government
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.
Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public... BARACK OBAMA"
The Dictatorship of The Corportariat rules. It's too late.
They own congress and the MIC. We are all chattel. We have
followed the same blueprint as the Weimar Republic(1). Many oif
our oligarch families that supported them are racing forward with our
fascist juggernaut. Everyone, this is not about left, right,
center. It's about fascism. Our incarnation is poised for a
nuclear blitzkreig.1. Media propaganda against unions,
immigrants, gays, Jews(Muslims). Use of christian fanaticism and race
supremacy. Arayan/white. Military adventurism. State use of
provocations to expand state powers. Reichtag, Enabling Act, SS.
911 Patriot Act, Homeland Security, Homan Square, Gitmo. NDAA.
No surprise here. Obama is a bankster republi[con]. The USA is a nation of idiots. And bootlicking subjects of The Corportariat Dictatorship. Stop licking. Fight fight fight.
" We live in constant fear of upsetting the WH."
When you hear that quote from the Fourth Estate, you have to know you are living in a fascist state, posing as a democracy.
The Amerikan, Fascist Empire has hidden its nefarious and egregious actions for far to long behind the façade of " NATIONAL SECURITY". That bogus BS term is one reason why there is no transparency. National security actually is a misnomer because it has nothing to do with the actual security of the average American and everything to do with the securing the vested interests of the Amerikan Empire!
