Trump protest, theaters worldwide will screen the film version of Orwell’s ‘1984’

On April 4, more than 180 art-house theaters around the country — along with five locations in Canada, one in England and one in Sweden — will screen the film in protest of Trump’s administration. Theaters in 165 cities and 43 states will host the screenings as part of a joint effort by the Art House Convergence and United State of Cinema organizations.

“any comments that could be construed as offensive,” all contribute to the threat score.”

The totalitarian China styled police surveillance can also be used for, “fishing expeditions and revenue generation.”

Welcome to the New World Order. I just got a “red” score. Secretly of course.

“An annual subscription to Beware costs police departments around $36,000 dollars a year, the majority of which is covered by federal grants”

Does anyone out there believe this is what the founders had in mind?

Business concept isolated on white

With the devil’s tongue, but perhaps too ham-fisted and obvious to fool any of the grownups, Barack Orwell has redefined the language for us.

What the fuck is a “Norm?”

His UN mouthpiece Samantha Power used the same buzzword at the United Nations as they essentially destroyed International Law once and for all, replacing it with “international norms.”

At the G-20 Obama went all in, giving the finger to the United Nations, most of the world, and most Americans as well…

“When there is a breach this brazen of a norm this important, and the international community is paralyzed and frozen and doesn’t act, then that norm begins to unravel. And if that norm unravels, then other norms and prohibitions start unraveling, and that makes for a more dangerous world,”

The current “norm” is the UN Charter and that nations aren’t legally permitted to attack other nations.  Obama seeks to destroy this “norm” and legalize Hitler’s approach to international relations (the same thing we excoriated Bush for, for 8 years).

Hitler Invades Poland = America Invades Iraq = America bombs Syria

That’s the “norm” since the UN Charter was implemented in the 1940s.

PUTIN PLEDGES TO SUPPORT SYRIA IF ATTACKED

You didn’t think it would end there, did you?

Will we help Syria? We will. And we are already helping, we send arms, we cooperate in the economics sphere, we hope to expand our cooperation in the humanitarian sphere, which includes sending humanitarian aid to support those people – the civilians – who have found themselves in a very dire situation in this country,” Putin said.

Shit, I’ve been writing about this stuff for 20 years.  Now high ranking FBI Counterintelligence guys are saying it, and Glenn Greenwald is getting it published.

“…by which he means not that any communication is susceptible to government interception as it happens (although that is true), but far beyond that: all digital communications — meaning telephone calls, emails, online chats and the like — are automatically recorded and stored and accessible to the government after the fact. To describe that is to define what a ubiquitous, limitless Surveillance State is.”

Are all telephone calls recorded and accessible to the US government?

PS

And yes Proles, the original 1984 is online and in the public domain for you to read right now.   Orwell called it, and he remains the most relevant writer of the 20th century.  This novel should be the catechism of the next generation who will be living it more and more with daily erosions and affronts and assaults on their liberties and living standards.

Department of Homeland Security funding “Centers of Excellence” at US Universities

From Kindergarten to University: Homeland Security Culture in America

The official list[3] of 12 centers are overseen by the Orwellian “Office of University Programs” [4]. The “Strategic Objectives” of this office are quoted as follows:

  •  Foster a homeland security culture within the academic community through research and educational programs.
  • Strengthen U.S. scientific leadership in homeland security research.
  • Generate and disseminate knowledge and technical advances to advance the homeland security mission.
  • Integrate homeland security activities across agencies engaged in relevant academic research.
  • Create and leverage intellectual capital and nurture a homeland security science and engineering workforce.

Notice, their admitted overall goal is not only to ‘disseminate knowledge’ and technical advances for the homeland security ‘mission’, but also to create a Homeland Security Culture within the educational system; [5], 6].
