'Censorship, Algorithms And A Ministry Of Truth', Globalism vs. Nationalism: The New Civil War

"Censorship, Algorithms, and a Ministry of Truth": New York Times CEO Delivers Speech on Eradicating “Fake News”

It appears they are going to just keep beating this drum until they get their way. Not sure which is worse, straight up government censorship, or a “Ministry of Truth” run by corporations (like Google). It’ll likely be both.

On Monday, Mark Thompson, President and CEO of The New York Times Company, delivered remarks to members of the Detroit Economic Club.
Thompson threw around the idea of government censorship of “fake news.”

What can we do about it? The first thing that springs to some people’s minds is some form of censorship or regulation. I note in my book how the 17th century British political thinker Thomas Hobbes came, at least in part, to blame extremist sermons and tracts – tracts which could be mass-produced and disseminated widely within hours thanks to the still relatively new technology of printing – for England’s descent into civil war. He later argued that the war might never have happened if a few thousand of the extremists had been rounded up and executed.
Now, while I don’t suppose that even the sternest critic of fake news would advocate the death penalty, there are certainly some who favor a kind of functional censorship, with fake news sites identified and taken down, and fake news somehow filtered out of search and social media by human or algorithmic means.

Thompson then admits this is unrealistic. Besides, there is a thing called the First Amendment.

And who said that the public should only be allowed to read the facts anyway? The First Amendment essentially says they should be allowed to write, distribute and read anything they damn well please. If some of them turn out to prefer churning out and eagerly consuming lies and fantasies, so be it.

He then suggests a Ministry of Truth, of sorts, run by corporations, but admits this is worrisome.

If we imagine the tools that might be used to excise fake news from the web and social media – a mighty algorithm combing every sentence, every image for any trace of falsehood, aided perhaps by legions of human scrutineers employed by some of the world’s biggest corporations – they sound suspiciously like the means of control employed by the world’s most repressive regimes. They are probably not practical and, even if they were, they would be worrisome or worse in our free societies.

All wars and revolutions first start in the mind. And from this perspective, America is already embroiled in a civil war. This civil war can be accurately characterized as the globalists vs. the nationalists. Before these bipolar opposites related to governance are analyzed, let’s first look at the prime directives of the globalists because they are the least understood by the general public.

The New World Order seeks to enslave humanity in the following manner:

The evisceration of all national boundaries and native cultures to make it easier to impose the globalist will upon the people. The refugee/resettlement program is a prime example of this “global” thinking. 

The establishment of autocratic global governance is key to the master plan for a New World Order. The free-trade agreements (e.g. NAFTA, CAFTA, TPP) are a cornerstone to destroy national boundaries, the political sovereignty, and national economies in order to achieve their global governance goals. 

The wholesale relocation of businesses overseas in search of cheap third-world labor has replaced mercantilism as the primary system of economics. This lasissez-faire approach to economics wrestles all political authority away from a nation’s political structure and replaces it with global and corporate governance. Nations will eventually die as will the civil liberties of each country such as the United States. Under this system, the people become the property of the fascist corporate state and these individuals will be bent to the will of the globalists. Therefore, the modern nations, such as the United States, with its constitutional republic, must be totally and utterly destroyed. 

The designation of “fake news”, or what Congress is now calling it,  foreign propaganda, is typical of this globalist thinking. All loyalty is owed to the corporate, global-governance and any nationalist movement is viewed as not only antiquated, but treasonous and will eventually be dealt with in the same manner that President Lincoln dealt with the South when they attempted to withdraw from the Union.

The survival of all nation-states is on its last legs. The enemy is not within the gates, the globalist enemy has seized control over all of our institutions and have destroyed our cornerstone institutions such as education and the Christian church. On Sunday, when Trump said he wanted to restore prayer in school, it is clear to me that he has an appreciation for the moment that he occupies in world history.

America is at the abyss of a desolate dictatorial tyranny like the world has never seen. Americans are on the verge of not only losing their freedoms, but ultimately, we will lose our soul if we do not individually and collectively change course from a spiritual perspective. Further, globalist governance is a threat to 95% of the humans on this planet as the globalists, themselves, have advocated for the elimination of all of the useless eaters, all 95% of us. This is what Clinton meant when she used the word “deplorables” to describe the noncompliant nationalists. Does it make sense now why the globalists would promote a 4th degree Coven witch as a presidential candidate?

Due to sheer length and nothing else, this analysis must be broken into two parts.
In part two, there is a decided three-tiered approach to end the populist threat of Donald Trump. America is in the middle of this threat. The threat, if successful, will culminate with the prevention of Trump taking office, or moving to the more vile threat of the possible assassination of Donald Trump. It is clear from the emerging scenario, the real threat to the American people is what will follow the death of Trump’s populist movement.

The liberal media have been playing up a report by the Central Intelligence Agency that hackers aligned with the Russian government had allegedly provided Julian Assange with the hacked emails his website WikiLeaks published during the fall, but a former British ambassador to Uzbekistan is going public again to blow the story out of the water.

“As [WikiLeaks founder]  Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians,” former Ambassador Craig Murray wrote on his blog Monday morning, adding that he had direct access to the original source. “As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks — there is a major difference between the two …

“Now both Julian Assange and I have stated definitively the leak does not come from Russia. Do we credibly have access? Yes, very obviously. Very, very few people can be said to definitely have access to the source of the leak. The people saying it is not Russia are those who do have access.”

Many New Yorkers were alarmed this afternoon by a USAF C-130 and several Black Hawk helicopters that could be seen circling at low altitudes over Manhattan.  Per the Washington Post, U.S. Air Force Col. Nicholas Broccoli, the vice commander of the Air National Guard’s 106th Rescue Wing, said the aircraft were conducting "standard military training."  That said, there is seemingly very little that is "standard" about a C-130 circling at low altitudes over Manhattan for 30 minutes.   

According to Buzzfeed deputy news director Tom Namako, the NYPD was not notified of military aircraft expected to be flying at low altitudes over the city.

The aircraft apparently flew in a crisscrossing pattern over Midtown Manhattan with the center of the pattern roughly aligned over Trump Tower.  So while the mission of the aircraft has still not been revealed, it's certainly not difficult to see how it might have something to do with defending President-elect Trump.

Meanwhile, several anxious New Yorkers took to twitter to post sightings of the aircraft:

The news continues to be overwhelming. In case any one else feels overwhelmed I offer a picture of my cat for the sake of a needed distraction from reality...


Just offering some needed levity! Seriously... we can rejoice because our King and Bridegroom is coming!
