Orwell Wrote The Script


China: The New Bin Laden

George Orwell,
the pen name by which Eric Blair is known, had the gift
of prophecy, or else blind luck.  In 1949 in his
novel, 1984, he described the Amerika of
today and, I fear, also his native Great Britain, which
is no longer great and follows Washington, licking the
jackboot and submitting to Washington`s hegemony over
England and Europe and exhausting itself financially and
morally in order to support Amerikan hegemony over the
rest of the world.

In Orwell`s
prophecy, Big Brother`s government rules over
unquestioning people, incapable of independent thought,
who are constantly spied upon.  In 1949 there was
no Internet, Facebook, twitter, GPS,  etc. 
Big Brother`s spying was done through cameras and
microphones in public areas, as in England today, 
and through television equipped with surveillance
devices in homes.  As everyone thought what the
government intended for them to think, it was easy to
identify the few  who had suspicions.
 

Fear and war
were used to keep everyone in line, but not even Orwell
anticipated Homeland Security feeling up the genitals of
air travelers and shopping center customers.  Every
day in people`s lives, there came over the TV the Two
Minutes of Hate.  An image of Emmanuel Goldstein, a
propaganda creation of the Ministry of Truth, who is
designated as Oceania`s Number One Enemy,  appeared
on the screen. Goldstein was the non-existent
"enemy of the
state"
whose non-existent organization,
"The
Brotherhood,"
was Oceania`s terrorist enemy. 
The Goldstein Threat justified the 
"Homeland
Security"
that violated all known Rights of
Englishmen and kept Oceania`s subjects
"safe."

Since 9/11, with
some diversions into Khalid Sheik Mohammed and Mohamed
Atta, the two rivals to bin Laden as the
"Mastermind of
9/11,"
Osama bin Laden has played the 21st century
roleof Emmanuel Goldstein.  Now that the Obama
Regime has announced the murder of the modern-day
Goldstein, a new demon must be constructed before
Oceania`s wars run out of justifications. 

Hillary Clinton,
the low-grade moron who is US Secretary of State, is
busy at work making China the new enemy of Oceania. 
China is

Amerika`s largest creditor,
but this did not inhibit
the idiot Hilary from, this week in front of high
Chinese officials, denouncing China for
"human rights
violations"
and for the absence of democracy.  

While Hilary was
enjoying her rant and displaying unspeakable Amerikan
hypocrisy, Homeland Security thugs had organized local
police and sheriffs in a small town that is the home of
Western Illinois University and set upon peaceful
students who were enjoying their annual street party. 
There was

no rioting, no property damage,
but the riot police
or Homeland Security SWAT teams showed
up with sound cannons, gassed the students and beat
them. 

Indeed, if
anyone pays any attention to what is happening in
Amerika today, a militarized police and Homeland
Security are destroying constitutional rights of
peaceful assembly, protest, and free speech.  

For practical
purposes, the U.S. Constitution no longer exists. The
police can beat, taser, abuse, and falsely arrest
American citizens and experience no adverse
consequences. 

The executive
branch of the federal government, to whom we used to
look to protect us from abuses at the state and local
level, acquired the right under the Bush regime to
ignore both US and international law, along with the US
Constitution and the constitutional powers of Congress
and the judiciary.  As long as there is a
"state of war,"
such as the open-ended
"war on terror,"
the executive branch is higher than the law and is
unaccountable to law.  Amerika is not a democracy,
but a country ruled by an executive branch Caesar. 

Hillary, of
course, like the rest of the U.S. Government, is scared
by the recent International Monetary Fund (IMF) report
that China will be the most powerful economy in five
years.  

Just as the
military/security complex pressured President John F.
Kennedy to start a war with the Soviet Union over the
Cuban missile crisis while the US still had the nuclear
advantage, Hillary is now moving China into the role of
Emmanuel Goldstein.

Hate has to be
mobilized, before Washington can move the ignorant
patriotic masses to war.

How can Oceania
continue if the declared enemy, Osama bin Laden, is
dead.  Big Brother must immediately invent another
"enemy of the
people."

But Hillary,
being a total idiot, has chosen a country that has other
than military weapons.  While the Amerikans support
"dissidents"
in China, who are sufficiently stupid to believe that
democracy exists in Amerika, the insulted Chinese
government sits on $2 trillion in US dollar-denominated
assets that can be dumped, thus destroying the US
dollar`s exchange value and the dollar as reserve
currency, the main source of US power.

Hillary, in an
unprecedented act of hypocrisy, denounced China for
"human rights
violations."
  This from a country that has
violated the human rights of millions of victims in our
own time in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya,
Somalia, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, secret CIA prisons
dotted all over the planet, in US courts of law, and in
the arrests and seizure of documents of American war
protestors.  There is no worst violator of human
rights on the planet than the US government, and the
world knows it.

The hubris and
arrogance of US policymakers, and the lies that they
inculcate in the American public, have exposed
Washington to war with the most populous country on
earth, a country that has a military alliance with
Russia, which has sufficient nuclear weapons to wipe out
all life on earth.  The scared idiots in Washington
are desperate to set up China as the new Osama bin
Laden, the figure of two minutes of hate every news
hour, so that the World`s Only Superpower can take out
the Chinese before they surpass the US as the Number One
Power.


No country on earth has a less responsible government
and a less accountable government than the Americans. 
However, Americans will defend their own oppression, and
that of the world, to the bitter end.
