Guardian front page channels Orwell’s 1984

by Jonathan Cook

c
Reading the “liberal” press has become a truly Orwellian experience. What was true yesterday is a lie today. What was black today will be white tomorrow. Two reports on today’s front page of the Guardian could easily be savage satire straight from the pages of the novel 1984.
Report one: The Guardian provides supportive coverage of the beginning of a full-throttle assault by Iraqi forces, backed the US and UK, on Mosul to win it back from the jihadists of ISIS – an assault that will inevitably lead to massive casualties and humanitarian suffering among the civilian population.
Report two: The Guardian provides supportive coverage of the US and UK for considering increased sanctions against Syria and Russia. On what grounds? Because Syrian forces, backed by Russia, have been waging a full-throttle assault on Aleppo to win it back from the jihadists of ISIS and Al-Qaeda – an assault that has led to massive casualties and humanitarian suffering among the civilian population.
Remember, as was prophesied: “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.”

Unlike the Guardian we are NOT funded by Bill & Melinda Gates, or any other NGO or government. So a few coins in our jar to help us keep going are always appreciated.

Obama and Democratic Party is a threat for an appeasement in the whole World.

nothing new for those who have expirienced insanely biased “media coverage” of civil war in ex-Yugoslavia. Serbs were always accused for everything. One USA general, in his interview for Chichago media, addmitted that “they had instructions to accuse Serbs for any wrongdoing that happens in Bosnia”.

Now expose the government targeting innocent citizens with military weapons to isolate them, ruin their lives and then try to have them act out criminally. They are using mind control and directed energy weapons (V2K, remote neural monitoring, microwaving, scalar, sound) and gang stalking on innocent citizens. These technologies can’t be seen or traced and the victims are left with little recourse since the attacks can’t be proven. The victims may appear to have mental issues, however it is the technology that is violating their minds and bodies causing voices, hallucinations, time lapses, and multiple other violations. Psychiatry is a hoax, these technologies cause many mental issues. Freedomfchs.net, ICAACT.org, Jesse Ventura’s Brain Invaders youtube, intellihub.com, John Hall’s book Guinea Pigs, Renee Pittman’s (Anne Frank of our times) books and countless victims are trying to expose the truth. The media, politicians, and psychiatry all cover for this and are complicit for this torture taking place for decades remotely in every city. These psychopaths in government need to be exposed and the true terrorists are in government agencies remotely targeting individuals with military technology.
These technologies violate the minds and bodies of the afflicted persons and are the most egregious violation of human rights perpetrated by the government with your tax dollars. Taxpayers should be demanding their government quit paying for these crimes against humanity on law abiding citizens. No wonder we are broke. Why pay perps sitting at computers screwing with people in their beds and living rooms, these treasonous criminals and agencies need to be exposed and jailed. EXPOSE AND END THE TORTURE AND HOLOCAUST NOW.

At least in 1984, an enemy could become a friend could become an enemy spaced out in time. Now we have both enemies/friends at the same time. The islamists as friends in Aleppo but as enemies in Mosul seemingly changing colour depending on which media is reporting and which army is attacking.

The Zionist/Masonic/Protocols unfold according to the plan of Order ab Chao and more war. It is the White Russian and not the Red Army that rides to the rescue this time, bolstered by the Chinese hacked military hardware and an ocean of dollars to recycle before the financial crash engulfs the financial system of half the world.
The BRICKS have their own international banking settlement system and would survive the eventual collapse of the petro dollar which would be used as a precursor to world war. Except for Putin the Chinese and Iran who have drawn a line in the sand and a no fly zone in the air.
The thought of Killary with her finger on the nuclear buttons is more chilling than George Orwell’s entirely prescient novel 1984. The spectacle of this accomplished liar with the hide of a rhinoceros being continually referred to as a liar by the other illusory presidential candidate just typifies the depths to which the ruling elite in the US has sunk but also the new depths of bad taste and manners which candidates for the high office of the President of the United States now display
Choice, what choice ?

Guardian, Greenwald and Snowden have all showed me that they are all Mossad, all the time.

The US / Israel brotherhood is an ongoing psychotic game of annihilation…..they would not succeed in any plans greater than to take back a bath of dirty baby water….they are hopeless and inept and the sooner they go bankrupt the better.

It is very interesting to note that the US and its allies have no concept of hypocrisy, none at all. They also have no idea that they are showing the World just how inept they are at maintaining any kind of foreign policy consistency other than, we get to do it and you don’t!

Of course not. Hypocrisy requires that some sort of universal law or ethics has been violated, but in the US you are roundly criticized for “moral equivalency.” It is considered one of the most evil devices a “liberal” can employ. To claim “moral equivalency” between something the US does and something some other nation does is to deny “American exceptionalism.”
Why, everybody in River City knows there’s no “moral equivalency” between billiards and pool!

Also noted on this Orwellian disparity that the evil Daesh are using civilians as human shields in Mosul and won’t let them leave; whereas the evil Putin and the still more evil Assad are guilty of war crimes by not allowing the civilians of Aleppo to leave. Never has there been mention of humanitarian corridors or the execution by our beloved freedom fighters of those who tried to leave.
Or was that just disinformation from the evil pro Russian news channels that have poisoned my mind?

I could add that the US/NATO Alliance has opened humanitarian corridors for Daesh terrorists to leave Mosul – so long as they redeploy to Syria. http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-destruction-and-political-fragmentation-of-iraq-towards-the-creation-of-a-us-sponsored-islamist-caliphate/5386998

Silly OffGuardian. Don’t you know the bombs Amerikastan and its vassals drop are freedom loving liberal humanitarian bombs, unlike those dropped by Evil Putin and Evil Assad?

Cook is an excellent writer on Israel vs. Palestine, one of the best out there. He used to be published in the Graun–but his articles were too revealing of the injustices suffered by Palestinians so they stopped publishing him.

Very true, deschutes. If every journalist had the integrity of Jonathan Cook we wouldn’t need vent our anger on websites like OffGuardian. Whilst he doesn’t agree with each and every Palestinian response to the crimes committed against them, he understands the context. I suppose its the sign of a very good journalist when the MSM discard them.
