NY Times Calls For Biden to Appoint “Reality Czar” to Fight “Misinformation”

Here comes the Ministry of Truth.

The New York Times has amplified claims by “experts” who are calling for Joe Biden to appoint a “reality czar,” prompting critics to compare the idea to the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s 1984.

In an article entitled ‘How the Biden Administration Can Help Solve Our Reality Crisis’, the NYT’s Kevin Roose cites “experts” who are calling on “the Biden administration put together a cross-agency task force to tackle disinformation and domestic extremism, which would be led by something like a “reality czar.”

The job of this “reality czar” would be to head up “a centralized task force could coordinate a single, strategic response” to things like COVID-related and election fraud “conspiracy theories.”

“This task force could also meet regularly with tech platforms, and push for structural changes that could help those companies tackle their own extremism and misinformation problems. (For example, it could formulate “safe harbor” exemptions that would allow platforms to share data about QAnon and other conspiracy theory communities with researchers and government agencies without running afoul of privacy laws.) And it could become the tip of the spear for the federal government’s response to the reality crisis,” states the article.

“Ah, the Ministry of Truth. I’ve been waiting for this one,” responded Raheem Kassam.

While the Orwell comparison has become something of a cliché, in this instance its the best available.

In the book, the Ministry of Truth decides what is “truth” in Oceania no matter what the actual truth may be, and exercises this monopoly over reality by falsifying the nature of historical events.

The Ministry of Truth also uses this power monopoly to redefine the very word “truth” under the rubric of Newspeak, so “truth” becomes whatever the government-approved version of events is in that moment.

What the “experts” cited by the New York Times are calling far and what Orwell portrayed in his book are so similar, even Kevin Roose admits, “It sounds a little dystopian.”

But if “conspiracy theories” really do pose a deadly threat to society, who is responsible for pushing the most egregious disinformation?

As we have exhaustively documented – the most harmful “conspiracy theories,” – such as Saddam Hussein’s non-existent WMD’s and supporting “freedom fighters” who were actually jihadists in Libya and Syria – are always exclusively peddled by the mainstream media.

The corporate press pushing these two whoppers created the consensus for war that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and an international migrant crisis.

The New York Times was one of the most prominent outlets that amplified both these damaging deceptions and yet they faced no consequences whatsoever.

Such lies are also far more harmful to society because mainstream media networks have the biggest platforms, they are amplified by rigged social media platforms, and they share a common consensus narrative with each other, meaning there is almost no room for questioning or debate.

If there really was a truly independent “reality czar,” the media would be big trouble because its entire raison d’être is predicated around distorting reality.

Report: Trump Blamed Kushner For Pandering to “The Blacks”

“They all fucking hate me, and none of them are going to vote for me.”

Published

on

James Devaney

A new report claims that President Trump blamed Jared Kushner for pandering to “the blacks,” who Trump thought were never going to vote for him anyway because “they all fucking hate me.”

The claim is made by Michael C. Bender, senior White House reporter for the Wall Street Journal, in his new book Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost.

According to Bender, Trump blamed Kushner for his messaging in response to months of Black Lives Matter riots and mayhem (which Bender describes as “civil unrest”) not connecting with Americans.

The report claims that Trump thought the law and order message which proved so successful in 2016 had been diluted by Kushner’s push for “criminal justice reform,” which actually had the consequence of making Trump look weak when the riots began and didn’t earn him any goodwill amongst African-Americans voters.

“Trump privately told advisers that he wished he’d been quicker to support police and more aggressive in his pushback against protesters,” writes Bender.

According to the report, Trump told Kushner, “I’ve done all this stuff for the blacks – it’s always Jared telling me to do this. And they all fucking hate me, and none of them are going to vote for me.”

According to Bender, the weekend after Father’s Day, Trump began trying to distance himself from Kushner by scheduling political meetings at the White House without him.

Many America First nationalist warned Republicans for months and even years before the 2020 election that the campaign’s obsession with capturing more of the black vote was futile and that more effort should have been made on reaching swing voters.

Thanks to the likes of Jared Kushner seizing control of the campaign, that warning was never heeded.

Rand Paul: No Democrat Sent Well Wishes After Assault, Death Threats; “The Left Thinks It’s Hilarious”

“Something has to give and the left needs to quit fomenting this”

Published

Senator Rand Paul revealed Thursday that he never received any well wishes or sentiments from any Democrats after he was brutally assaulted in 2017, or after receiving death threats as he did this week when white powder was sent to his family home and discovered by his wife Kelley Paul.

Appearing on Fox Business along with his wife to talk about the incident, Paul said “We have people on the left who think it’s just hilarious,” adding that social media trolls “encourage crazy people across the country.” 

Watch:

Paul continued, “I was hit from behind by someone running full blast down a hill,” referring to the assault on him by his own neighbour four years ago, suspected to be motivated by the man’s political opposition to Paul’s Conservative-Libertarian leanings.

As we previously reported, leftists continue to mock Paul’s assault, expressing their wishes that he had been killed in the attack. It isn’t just unhinged basement dwellers posting their vile drivel either, it’s “celebrities” with significant followings.

This has led to even more horrid death threats against Paul and his family.

The Senator noted that “not one Democrat came up to me since I’ve been back and said, ‘I’m sorry that you’re having to deal with having white powder sent in an envelope to you.’”

“Not one of them I don’t think ever said they were sorry for me being assaulted by someone and having six ribs broken and nearly dying and having my lung removed,” Paul added. 

“This has got to stop, but the left thinks it’s hilarious what happened to me and they encourage other people to do it,” the Senator further asserted, adding “Something has to give and the left needs to quit fomenting this.”

Pelosi: Lawmakers Who Don’t Wear Masks Or Get Vaccinated Could Be Banned From House Floor

“If you don’t want to wear a mask…if you’re not vaccinated, don’t even come to the floor”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Thursday that any lawmakers who refuse to wear masks or get vaccinated could be prevented from having access to the House floor.

Pelosi has decided, despite CDC guidelines to the contrary, that masks still need to be worn by everyone, yet some GOP lawmakers are refusing to go along with her decree.

“We could come to a place where we say if you don’t want to wear a mask…if you’re not vaccinated, don’t even come to the floor. We have facilities up above in the gallery where people can come to vote,” Pelosi declared during a briefing:

As ever, it is one rule for Pelosi and the Democrats, and another for everyone else, because over at the White House there wasn’t a mask in sight as Democrats all shook hands and even….. HUGGED… dun dun daaaaaaaaaa:

The hypocrisy hasn’t gone unnoticed:
