With its markedly ironic title, The Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984, is one of the most important agencies of the government. For, as enotes.com writes,an uninformed or misinformed populace can be confused, deceived, and directed easily by controlling powers. Keeping the people confused about who is at war with whom and what is the reality of things causes them to become involved in nothing and, therefore, no threat to the power structure.

This is an article that explains a great deal—but, with apologies, it involves a line of reasoning, in order to reach a conclusion. That means some readers (not my regular readers) may find it odd. Some readers with short attention spans may suddenly want to switch to a wrestling show or a shopping network. To them I say: give this a try; it does have a payoff; it has its own kind of shock and surprise; explosions do go off in the mind; it is like a ten-car pile-up on the interstate in the fog, late at night; and there is a very nasty plot.

With the highest per capita rate of sheltered asylum seekers in Europe, Sweden has become something of a poster child for migrant mischief.
In the wake of the sexual assaults that swept the bloc on New Year’s Eve, the world is suddenly focused on Sweden, where some say police conspired to cover up a series of attacks that allegedly occurred in central Stockholm’s Kungsträdgården last August and where a 22-year-old aid worker was recently stabbed to death by a Somali migrant.

Pictures of a a wood and cardboard mock-up of a Second World War vintage Tiger tank adorned with signs reading ‘Asylum defence’ and ‘Asylum Package III’ taken by police have been passed onto the office of the prosecutor after the float was featured in carnival parades this weekend.
Officers at the scene didn’t prevent the parade from going ahead because although they suspected the satirical float was possibly guilty of acting seditiously, they decided to respect the right of artistic freedom. One of the signs on the tank was a reference to the controversial ‘Asylum Package II’, a new package of government measures designed to give Germany greater control over their borders, but significantly delayed from its planned January implementation date.
Details of a mocked up wooden train carnival float which is thought to be making reference to the efficiency with which European railways have brought hundreds of thousands of migrants into the heart of the continent has been passed to the prosecutor for investigation.
The locomotive, which was aptly named the ‘Balkan Express’ and had written across the buffer bar “The Plague is Coming” was accompanied by dozens of carnival committee members dressed as grasshoppers. The prosecutor will decide whether the display was a hate speech, or if it comes under the category of carnival satire.
Are you living “the American Dream”? If so, you should consider yourself to be very fortunate, because most Americans are not.
In fact, as you will see below, a new survey has found that there is nowhere on the entire planet where the average wage earner is making enough money to live “the American Dream”. Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most prosperous middle class in the history of the world, but now the middle class makes up a minority of the population, 51 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year, and poverty is growing rapidly. The American Dream is essentially dead, and even the mainstream media is starting to figure this out.Continue reading »
The Chinese government is facing public outcry amid fresh allegations that authorities have routinely had the organs of political prisoners illegally, forcibly removed.
According to Newsweek, well-respected investigators from all over the world agree that thousands of people have had their organs forcefully extracted, without anesthetic, while held in Chinese prisons. Many of the victims belong to a banned religious group called Falun Gong, a forbidden, though peaceful Chinese religion created in 1992. Members continue to face constant discrimination in the country. Continue reading »
04/02/2016 – NEUMUNSTER, Germany – Migrant Train Sex Assault
Two asylum seekers from Macedonia are accused of sexually assaulting two sets of two women on a train by exposing themselves to the girls and harassing them. The two 23 year old men first started exposing themselves to two women on the train from Elmshorn to Neumünster in a private compartment and then moving to another compartment and doing to the same thing to another pair.
Both pairs of women described similar actions taken by the migrants. They blocked the paths of escape and groped the women while attempting to expose themselves to them. After escaping the men all four women reported them to police who arrested them and found that they were asylum seekers living in an asylum centre in Boostedt according to a press report from the German Federal Police.
The atmosphere on Swedish social media is now almost revolutionary. People post videos of themselves accusing the government of murder, of filling Sweden with violent people.
When Alexandra Mezher was murdered, she was alone in the residence with ten asylum seekers. She was stabbed by one of the “children” she cared for.
When National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson appeared on the “Good Morning Sweden” TV show, the day after Mezher’s murder, he expressed sympathy for the murderer, but barely mentioned the victim. This sparked frenzied outrage on social media.
Mass immigration is continuing to claim victims in Sweden. Murder, assaults and rape have become everyday occurrences in this small country, with a population just short of ten million, which last year opened its doors to almost 163,000 immigrants. The latest victim is 22-year-old Alexandra Mezher. She was stabbed to death last week by a so-called unaccompanied refugee child at the asylum house where she worked.
Although the massive influx of asylum seekers has decreased drastically since January 4, when Sweden implemented border controls on the Swedish/Danish border, the people who are already here pose a giant problem to municipalities, police and citizens. The police are fighting a losing battle against street crime, as well as daily incidents at asylum houses – general disturbances that include fights, rapes and threats.Continue reading »
I have heard it often said that there is no one right way to accomplish a goal. I agree. However, I would add that while there is no such thing as “one right way” to achieve an objective, this does not mean there aren’t numerous WRONG ways to achieve an objective.
Doing “something” is not always better than doing nothing if that “something” is based on terrible strategy. Unfortunately, there are people out there with otherwise good intentions, even in the liberty movement, that seem to think that taking action without planning is preferable to patience. They do not understand that there is such a thing as negative returns. Continue reading »
Several interviews with emergency service crews accompany a report on the most dangerous areas of Stockholm in today’sAftonbladet. A fire officer states “They set cars on fire and when our crew arrives, people are subject to regular ambushes”. He said stones are regularly thrown, and fire hoses stolen.
A spokesman for the ambulance service in Sweden says he has very high staff turnover in areas where crews are threatened with violence or attacked, and some suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. “I’ve had paramedics who have been shot at, chased with knives or axes. We see a disturbing trend where colleagues who are subjected to violence don’t want to testify in court”.

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

Police are seeking an unidentified man who shouted a blank-firing pistol in the air and fired it at least four times while shouting “Allahu Akhbar” at the weekend before driving off. Shell casings have been recovered, but there has been no developments in tracking the man or his car.
A Professor has interrupted German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the opening ceremony of a new Fraunhofer Institute for Microsystems and now fears for his teaching position. He said he is scared about the future of his 2, 4 and 9 year old children and that Merkel is conducting an experiment whose outcome nobody can predict. He urged her to be responsible and reasonable as she is a physicist herself.
Merkel shrugged him off and said she is already doing the best she can for the future of Germany. This may be because she has no personal investment in the future, no children, no relatives and has recently been spotted in South America hunting for real estate where she can spend her retirement.
As Europe struggles to cope with a migrant crisis that’s already the worst refugee catastrophe since World War II and which threatens to spiral even further out of control once the weather turns in the spring, officials have offered a variety of possible “solutions” to the various refugee-related “problems” that have cropped up.

If you’re an American citizen, then the government has a personal file on you. Think of it like your permanent record from your grade school days. These records contain highly sensitive personal information about you such as where you live, your contact info, your relatives and associates, arrest records, and even speeding tickets. But what many people don’t know, is that this information is all considered “public record,”—and anyone can access it.
Now, a controversial new site is taking things a step further by gathering these records together and posting them online, so anyone with a computer and Internet access can see them. Continue reading »
The video below shows coverage of how Iceland chose a very different way of stopping the crisis of 2008 from the rest of the European countries. The Iceland government made a conscious decision to hear the requests of the population, and to put politicians and bankers on the bench of the accused three years after their financial excesses sank one of the most prosperous economies in 2008. The result was the government of Iceland forgave the mortgage debts for much of its population. Continue reading »
The German government is set to spend €600 million euros housing migrants in upmarket Berlin hotels at a cost of €18,000 per “refugee,” while the city’s 10,000 homeless population will remain on the streets.
The Berlin senate is negotiating a plan with property owners to rent 22 hotels in and around the city to house refugees, German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine reports, with a reference to a source in the senate.
The plan is part of a longer-term leasing of 10,000 hotel places for migrants, each costing €50 (US$54.60) a night for the hotel accommodation or €18,000 per year for an “all inclusive” program of care and integration.
Grand City Hotels, or GCH, a London-based firm which owns the buildings in question, is to provide the Berlin Senate with 22 hotels, including Holiday Inn and Wyndham properties. It is not immediately clear how many refugees it is planned will be accommodated there Continue reading »
A nursing school has been put under police protection, with a “large contingent” of officers stationed there after “many young women” complained about being molested on their way to school by migrants. Around 15 officers are stationed to protect the students as they walk to classes from a nearby railway station in the morning.
The students of the National Health Care School were subjected to suggestive gestures and remarks, and at least one student has been assaulted by “Mediterranean looking” men while she was walking from the train station. One remarked the men said women who don’t wear the burqa are “sluts”, reports a German educational news site. A 1,400-man migrant camp is nearby, which police are now investigating.
Shocking footage claims to show a group of migrant men ‘attacking two pensioners who stood up for a woman they were harassing on the Munich subway’
Video is said to have been recorded in the middle of the day on busy Metro
Filmed moments after German woman spurned asylum seeker’s advances
Claims to catch the moment ‘Arab’ men grapple with elderly commuters
One bald man can be seen held by the arms while another grabbed by neck
Shocking footage has surfaced online appearing to show a group of young migrants attacking two German pensioners after they stood up for a young women the men were harassing on a subway train.
Recorded on a mobile phone, the disgraceful video shows the men – of Eastern European or Arabic origin – holding one man by the arms as they verbally abuse him.
The second victim is seen grappling with one of the migrants, before he is held up by the neck and threatened.
Munich man Tom Roth uploaded the disgraceful video to his Facebook page. He caught the footage while travelling from Sendlinger Tor station to the Metro’s city centre terminal.
He said the fight broke out after one of the asylum seekers was rejected by a woman who he had placed his hand upon on the train.
In response, the man smashed his hand against the carriage’s glass window – an aggressive act of defiance the train’s other passengers requested he desist.
However, when they did, one elderly German man was patted mockingly on the head by one of the migrant group.
That act of disrespect sparked an angry exchange.
H&M and Next, two of Europe’s biggest garment retailers, have found Syrian refugee children working in their supplier factories in Turkey, according to a report by a company ethics watchdog.
Of the 28 major brands questioned by the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRCC) about conditions at their supplier factories in Turkey and the potential exploitation of undocumented Syrian children and adults, only H&M and Next confessed to finding children working in the factories.
