Liberals are so lost that they compared Trump’s victory to the advent of some totalitarian nightmare when in fact this was the legacy of all previous administrations, as witnessed by the venomous opposition to Trump in the mass media, i.e. Big Brother’s “Ministry of Truth.” Here, John Hamer traces the source of Orwell’s “success” to the Cold War and the CIA’s desire to tar Communism with totalitarianism. Ironically Orwell’s compelling prophecy of human servitude would otherwise not be known.
 
The Cold War was a false dialectic; Freemasonry was/is behind both East and West. Despite 1984-style mass surveillance, people don’t appreciate that Orwell’s vision has come true. The West has transitioned to Communism without the fuss and bother of a revolution, but the downside is that no one has noticed.

Many are now comparing the Trump administration to ‘Big Brother’ and his cohorts in George Orwell’s dystopian vision of the future, ’1984.’
 
Ironically, Trump, despite originally being seen as a ‘new broom’ to sweep clean the filthy Augean stables known as American politics, has in fact turned out to be simply the latest in a long line of ‘puppet’ Presidents whose election promises were immediately discarded. Rinse and repeat ad infinitum. 
 
The truth is that far from being a  democratic society, what we have in place is a situation akin to that of Orwell’s ’1984,’ whereby politicians are not elected, but selected and represent only the Elite powers who operate clandestinely, anonymously behind the scenes.
 

1984-Big-Brother.jpg

’1984,’ a grim novel of future totalitarianism and Orwell’s satirical novel, ‘Animal Farm,’ described state oppression succinctly. But ironically, Orwell had unknowingly fallen into the clutches of the very propagandists and distorters of truth he vilified. His publisher, Fredric Warburg, was a secret CIA asset who later produced the CIA propaganda magazine ‘Encounter,’ for one of the CIA’s countless ‘front’ organizations, Congress for Cultural Freedom.
 
‘Animal Farm’ was published in the same month of the German surrender, May 1945, the perfect moment to launch a concerted attack on Soviet policies.  The Cold War propaganda campaign embraced Animal Farm, which rapidly became a best-seller.
 
In 1948, the Information Research Department (IRD) was formed by the British Foreign Office, as an adjunct to MI6. ‘Animal Farm’ was in fact a core IRD project.  It was broadcast on ‘Voice of America,’ and Orwell helped the IRD strategize its vast worldwide circulation.  
 
Orwell died of tuberculosis. But four months earlier, he had married Sonia Brownell, fifteen years his junior and subsequently, Warburg persuaded his widow to unwittingly sell the movie rights of 1984 and Animal Farm to the CIA’s Office of Policy Coordination (OPC,) a creation of Allen Dulles.  Sonia allegedly ceded the film rights to Animal Farm only upon the promise of a ‘date’ with Clark Gable.CIA official Joe Bryan made the arrangements, ‘as a measure of thanks.’
 
The head of OPC was none other than E. Howard Hunt, future member of the Watergate gang of criminals who was also involved in the assassination of JFK.  
 
 A British animation company, Halas and Batchelor, who during WW2 were heavily involved with government training and propaganda films, were awarded the contract to create the film and it was completed by a team of eighty animators, in April 1954.

It was in order to meet the CIA’s objectives, the film ended with other animals mounting a successful revolt against their rulers.  There was no mention of the humans in the film’s conclusion.  Had he lived to see it, Orwell would no doubt have been horrified at the way his ideas had been twisted to make political capital.
 
The film was a box office ‘hit’ but much of the book’s original intentions had been omitted.  It was later distributed around the world by the United States Information Agency through their overseas libraries. They then produced 1984 in Britain in 1956.  Inevitably, Orwell’s message was distorted and perverted again by the CIA.  The CIA’s ironically ‘Orwellian’ sabotage of two of the most powerful political works in literature was a masterstroke. 
 
PROPAGANDA
 
By sabotaging the books’ real messages in the movie versions, the CIA effectively prevented the vast majority of people from ever learning of the true relevance of Orwell’s writings, to their own situations. 
 
1984 has had a profound effect all around the world.  Since its first publication many of its concepts have entered modern day parlance, ‘Big Brother,’ ‘Doublethink,’ ‘Thoughtcrime,’ ‘Newspeak’ and ‘Room 101′ are all derived from its pages.  And perhaps even more significantly, ‘Orwellian’ has now become a term that describes official deception and manipulation by a totalitarian state.  Orwell’s vain hope was that by writing 1984 he would help stop such a state ever coming to pass.  Oh, the irony.

However, 1984 is more than just a story, it is a prophecy and vision of what is planned for all of us.  The invisible yet ‘all-powerful’ ‘Big Brother,’ is now representative of the planned New World Order, of which Trump is the incumbent stooge.  
 
‘Newspeak,’ as Orwell referred to it, is the authoritarian government’s weapon of choice for deceit and it works by placing a different meaning, or ‘spin,’ on events by altering words and replacing them with something which softens them and evades the truth. Modern politicians are without doubt trained in this facility and indeed have become thoroughly expert in its utilization, President Trump included.
 
The corporate state, hiding behind the smokescreen of the mainstream media, the public relations industry, the entertainment industry and the materialism, devours us from the inside, out.  It owes no allegiance to us or our nations and it feeds greedily upon us.  
 
But now the façade is crumbling and as Trump’s rapid, dramatic ‘fall from grace’ has demonstrated, more and more people are reaching the conclusion that they have been systematically duped and robbed, and realize that we are moving swiftly towards the world depicted in ’1984.’
 
Ironically, the fact that we were given 1984  in the first place, was part of the process it describes.

    123’s of true Christianity v popular & damnable heresies
    (simply because you “confess” it does not mean you actually are, the devil has deceived many of his own children to believe they are Christians 2Tim 3:5)
    #1 “ONE” not triune: THE ANTI CHRIST….WHERE? WHERE?….EVERYWHERE!!! …..IT”S YOU O TRINITARIAN!

    “WHO” it was (what person) that came “IN THE FLESH”, IS THE DETERMINING FACTOR IN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE “ANT-CHRIST”! Even Islam claims Jesus was the Jewish messiah/Christ who was to come in the flesh) they all deny “WHO” it was (what person) that came (to be the Christ) in the flesh!?!…….To deny the father is to deny the son because they are one and the same person that came in the flesh! https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/part-6-anti-christ-where-everywhere-allen-daves?trk=mp-reader-card

    JOHN 14: 8-20 where Christ specifically identifies himself (his person as the person of both the father and the HS; the only distinction is in “location” and “method of manifestation” …….Note Isaiah 9:6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: …: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, … the everlasting Father ….The son, father/Holy Spirit are all the same person, NOT like two different persons working together even as “one flesh” ….The “oneness” between Christ and the father is not comparable to a man & his wife, for only a fool would say “When you have seen me you have seen my wife, how sayest thou then, Shew us your wife?” Notice they asked to see THE FATHER and the response was Jn 14:9 ..“HAVE I BEEN SO LONG time with you, and yet hast THOU NOT KNOW ME, Philip…..Now image some fool trying to claim that statement if you asked to see his wife!?!!? You want to see the FATHER but have I been with you but you don’t know me!?!?! https://www.scribd.com/doc/305367608/The-Trinity-Heresy

    Jn 14 continued….…………..17. Even THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH; (Jn 14:6 I AM the way, THE TRUTH,) whom the world cannot receive, .. for HE DEWLLETH WITH YOU, (present tense/standing next to them in the flesh) and SHALL BE IN YOU… (future tense “In them”) 18. I will not leave you comfortless: I WILL COME TO YOU (future tense “In them”) Note: The spirit of Christ is the sprit of God and the holy spirit that is why Christ said “I will come to you” (to comfort them, because Christ is the comforter). The spirit was standing next to them in flesh… ….latter it would come to them to be inside of them (inside of their flesh as the spirit we are given)…..that is why. he would send the spirit…… However, Jesus himself here makes the point that the same person who was the HOLY SPIRIT that would come was standing next to them but lets them know “I will come to you again to be Inside of you”

    The whole point to Gal 3:20.a mediator is NOT A MEDIATOR OF ONE, (HEIS) but GOD IS ONE. (HEIS) again, point blank, identifies the number of persons of God! The “but” points out the contrast between multiple persons in a mediation party v the “one” of God. God is not like a mediation party with multiple different persons. …..”the express image of his person” ( the person of God; singular not plural).Any attempt to lay claim otherwise is willful ignorance and delusional nonsense https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/part-1-echadechadmy-godgod-echad-allen-daves?trk=mp-reader-card

    NOTE: don’t be that one in prov 26:12 over my use of the word “fool” here prov 18:13 (https://www.scribd.com/presentation/322007258/Fools ) “But but, the gospel of John…the Gospel of John …look look…” which is quite ironic since the gospel of John does not leave ANY room for multiple different persons of Jesus and father. However the gospel of John does leave a few verses that facilitate God’s promise in 2 Thess 2:11/ Isaiah 66:4 (take note of “HAND” in verse 2,14..You just can’t make this stuff up…God is surely laughing at these fools; Ps 2:1&4)

    ……Mark 12:28…Which is the first commandment of all? 29. …Hear, O Israel; THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD: 30. And ………..this is the first commandment….. 31. And the second is…..
    JESUS IS GOD AND IS THE FULLFILMENT OF ALL THE LAW AND PROPHETS SO IF YOU CAN’T GET THIS “FIRST OF ALL COMMANDMENTS” RIGHT, ALL THE REST OF YOUR “FAITH” AND PREACHING ON SIN IS MOOT

    TRINITARIANS CONFESS JESUS /THEY ARE NOT POLYTHEIST BUT ARE MONOTHEIST LIKE A LIAR & THIEF WHO “CONFESS” THEY DO NOT LIE OR STEAL The simple fact is that just because you confess or deny that you are in an adulterous relationship and denounce all forms of adultery has nothing to do with whether or not it is in fact adulterous! .. …A rose by any other name is still just a rose AND calling it a water lily does not change the definition of what a water Lilly or a rose is either!…No, Trinitarians confess & preach literally …”ANOTHER JESUS” 2 Cor 11:4

    - Like a thief in your house caught stealing your things insisting he was not there stealing “I CONFESS I am NOT stealing”. You just do not “properly understand” what he is doing/saying. Further, since you never had a “proper understanding” of what he is doing/saying you have no business accusing him since you do not even know what you are talking about in the first place. It is with and in your own ignorance that you base your “false accusations” & “ad homonym attacks” against him…… Ridiculous of course it is ……2Thess 2:11; Titus 1:16; 2Tim 3:5;

    - A Favorite tool for pathological liars is to use incongruent definitions or create oxymorons out of synonyms such as “a person” and “a being” so as to claim that your god is THREE DIFFERENT PERSONS but ONLY ONE BEING: Which is (1) no different then trying to claim that “THREE DIFFERENT CARS” is “THE ONE VEHICLE” (2) blatant demonstration of the dishonesty & sorcery these children of hell will employ with “a strait face” (which is in part what it means to be a pathological liar)
    ……but, ah i remember how this game is played… “God is three in one” (or 1in 3 or 3in one et al) should have given you a hint, harking back to Satan in The garden…God said you will die…Satan comes along and states no you will be more WISE……today .God said He is one; but Satan’s children come along and say no three is more WISE and humble in the face of God’s grandeur only “a mystery” that can be understood “in faith”. God uses head and right arm to explain the distinctions between father and son.. However, the Trinitarian heretics say to the effect: “NO, that is just a figure of speech, or that is not what God really means. What God is really saying is that God is three different persons”. Fools, hypocrites and blind guides, God said he was One and by your traditions and vain imaginations have taken the words of God and made them of no effect, refashioning God into your image!

    #2 SECOND COMING Thou Fool! “I come quickly” so “Hold fast
    till i come”… NOT …“in another 2000 yrs I might be coming soon any time now, so hold fast”!?! …those that deny the second coming of Christ in the war of AD70 are practicing a damnable heresy in denying the lord that bought them ( 2Peter 2:1-2 ;2Tim 4:8/ you cant love an appearing you deny& the context is the 2nd coming not the first)… Mat 7:23..”I NEVER KNEW YOU” …..Mat 10:33. But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And
    they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES.
    2Thess 2: 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    #3 There is a sharp contrast between THREE groups :

    (1) “PREDESTINED DAMNED” who were NEVER written in the book of life ………..Rev 17: 8 WHOSE NAMES WERE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, …as contrasted …EPH 1: 4. According as he hath CHOSEN US in him BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD

    (2) “MANY CALLED”= ONLY and ALL SAINTS (those who come to Christ) are written in the book of life … Philippians 4:3… ……Rev 21:27; (Only saints are Called and elect; Rom 1:6-7 et al) This is THE CHRUCH and ONLY these can have their names blotted out of the book of life ….….Heb 12:23 to the general assembly and CHURCH of the firstborn … WHICH ………are WRITTEN in heaven,

    (3) THE FEW CHOSEN: Those saints who were alive in group #2 who are now physically dead. They died “faithful” these are the FEW that were chosen faithful…….Rev 3:5. ……; and I
    will not BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, (Ps 69:28) …. These are the FEW that are CHOSEN and now that they have died and are saved then “once saved THEY CAN NEVER BE LOST”
