The 1984 Playbook Has Arrived: U.S. Air Force Deletes Drone Strike Data

If you recall, Winston Smith’s job in George Orwell’s classic novel 1984 was to go into historical records and literally change history.  He would alter photographs and text in the archives so that history would always portray “The Party” in a positive light and as omniscient.  Well folks, this behavior has arrived in America and we better nip it in the bud fast before one of these drones is flying right over our heads.  From the Air Force Times:

As scrutiny and debate over the use of remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) by the American military increased last month, the Air Force reversed a policy of sharing the number of airstrikes launched from RPAs in Afghanistan and quietly scrubbed those statistics from previous releases kept on their website.

 

Last October, Air Force Central Command started tallying weapons releases from RPAs, broken down into monthly updates. At the time, AFCENT spokeswoman Capt. Kim Bender said the numbers would be put out every month as part of a service effort to “provide more detailed information on RPA ops in Afghanistan.”

 

The Air Force maintained that policy for the statistics reports for November, December and January. But the February numbers, released March 7, contained empty space where the box of RPA statistics had previously been.

 

Additionally, monthly reports hosted on the Air Force website have had the RPA data removed — and recently.

 

On Sunday, U.S. Central Command said in a statement that the decision was made to remove the statistics because the data disproportionately places emphasis on the airstrikes. The majority of the RPA missions are for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, with a small percent involving airstrikes.

 

The data removal coincided with increased scrutiny on RPA policy caused by President Obama’s nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Brennan faced opposition in the Senate over the use of RPAs and his defense of their legality in his role as Obama’s deputy national security adviser.

Nothing to see here folks, move along.  Literally.

Talk about not believing.

According to this, only 30% of Americans trust the Govt. The real numbers of how many people accept the tripe is far less than 30%. Maybe closer to 2% to be more realistic. Just like the real unemployment number. It is close to 50% unemployed, and certainly NOT what the babylonians on the lame stream media dribble say it is.

“So long as they (the Proles) continued to work and breed, their other activities were without importance. Left to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of ancestral pattern...Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult.”

I don't know how to break it to you, but unless you're still stuck in the "my dad can beat your dad phase" of mental and emotional development, you will find that "God shed his grace on all earth", not just the corner where you made your very, very brief appearance on its surface.

Insofar a person is 'religious', they ought to worry more about being on God's side than making false, pompous, and presumptuous claims the God is on their side.   As if God actually 'picks sides'.

Enough of this sappy, falsely-patriotic projections.  How about simply taking ownership for one's life, and living like a decent human being?  For those people who 'need' a super-central-planner, or a nanny-state-to-come... good for you.  I do not.

With all fairness nobody really has to release those numbers.

Still, this is very much in line with what I'm expecting.  Decreasing transparency and increasing manipulation, which will make the gathering of accurate data difficult to impossible.

Be thankful that for now we at least have some idea of what's going on.  In the future we won't.

Consider saving to hard disk or printing interesting stats or graphs you come across.

You can't hide a multimillion person Mexican criminal Socialist invasion with coinciding massive institutional loan fraud in the trillions of dollars with essentially zero prosecutions without losing paperwork and rewriting "history".  

This is more of the seamless Obama continuation of GW Bush's Global corporate Socialist policies.

 have to hand to the Bankster/Rothchilds owned, controled and operated Lucerferian NWO/INTER-ALPHA/PLANNED WORLD DESTRUCTIONIntelligence/"Agent Smith" media Agencies.

They've completely PsyOp'd/Mind Fucked the American People's Psyche and perception of reality via Flase Flags coupled with media False Narratives.

 

1. Define an act of terrorism as warfare. (This was done by Bush after 9/11, and people let him get away with it. Even though terrorist acts have always been covered by U.S. laws. The Oklahoma City bombing was not treated as “warfare” but as a crime to investigate and prosecute as usual.)

2. Declare that those who carry out a terrorist act can be imprisoned without a trial, because it would be “dangerous” and a threat to national security to give them a trial. (Witness: Jose Padilla, the prisoners at Guantanamo, imprisoned for years without a trial, which is illegal.)

3. Declare that those who carry out a terrorist act can be killed without a trial, just like on the battlefield.

4. Widen the definition of terrorism to anyone who “gives support” to terrorists. As we have seen from no-fly lists, this includes anti-war people who have organized against the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. It also includes “right-wing extremists” who oppose the globalist agenda.

Done. Now you can do whatever you want.

When the dollar collapse comes, ordinary Americans who demonstrate against the globalist state can be disarmed, registered, harassed, have their employers called and questioned to scare them, have their leaders imprisoned without a trial, under the pretext that they are giving support to “the terrorists”. The way the globalists act, there will always be “terrorists” who strike back by force. This is useful for the globalists.


 

Reporter Ron Suskind nailed it to the wall when he got Carl Rove to blurt this out.

  

“We’re an empire now and when we act, we create our own reality and while you’re studying that reality, judiciously, as you will, we’ll act again, creating another new realities, which you can study too. And that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors, and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

It has been Usurped by the New World Order, and it's frontman Barack Hussein Obama, a British born non natural born citizen, who is not eligible for the office. He is allowed to stay there because people like you, with a platform, refuse to speak the truth and educate the US Citizenry to the treason that has occurred. Only the mass realization of the Usurpation will lead to the pithforks and blood of tyrants and patriots necessary to re-establish the Republic.

The truth shall set you free.

It has been sucking for a number of years now. I lived in the US under Bush and I couldn't stand him. And I did see how the expansion of executive powers would continue regardless who was president. I was hopeful with the election of Obama but nope .....

Of course none of you has any clue, just like the public in general, that the Usurpation of the Presidency has voided US Citizen sovereignty-- if the President is not legal, then there is no law-- as he is the executor of the law. The beatings will continue until you all wake up to the fact that Obama is not a legal President. You all propose to hate him so much but refuse to accept the knowledge that VOIDS his entire Presidency.--- Idiots--- but then the Usurper's handlers and propagandists (media) counted on that.

They are going about this all wrong. If they want the American people to accept drone strikes inside the U.S. all they have to do is have the Hollywood propaganda media create a TV show with two hot young "heroes". A young babe with big tits and a young swinging dick who hasn't shaved in a few days. Then there would be bad guys who are terrorist pedophiles. Our "heroes" would take them out with hellfire missiles from drones every week. A year of a show like this and the sheeple would completely accept American drone policy in the U.S.

Dont be surprised when they announce the new pope as "Petrus Romanus" aka Peter of Rome, fulfilling the 1139ad prophecy of Malachy, who has so far correctly called the names of all 111 popes so far.  It is said this will be the last pope, the one to usher in the "end of days" and bring forth the antichrist.

Im sorry folks, but if you havent realized by now that we are completely screwed and are targeted for extermination in a mass genocidal push for the Great Plan aka the New World Order, then you just didnt get the memo, and pretty soon when SHTF, youre gonna have a bad time.

Examples: Brennan being sworn in on a Constitution-lite, missing its Bill of Rights; Slick Barry being sworn in on anything other than the Bible, unless it too is Bible-lite, the cliff notes for dummies version; masonic symbolism decorating the grounds of the IRS HQ.

Very very soon, fecal matter will contact rotating blade apparatus in a way none of us have ever seen before, and on this day, likely an ordinary day like today was, things will go from fine to not fine, in a split second, and from then on things will never, ever, be the same. 

All one can do at this point is prepare the best you can to protect yourself and your loved ones, and secure a means for long-term survival, assuming you make it past the first "wave" of death and destruction this coming war brings.

I hope Im wrong, but personally I believe in preparing for the worst case scenario, rather than assuming nothing will happen and being caught with my pants down.  You?

It's obviously Al Gore's fault.

If Gore hadn't invented the Internet, there wouldn't be any place for these drone-strike statistics to appear for public scrutiny in the first place. And there wouldn't be any place for them to be deleted from.

The solution is to do away with Gore...the weather might improve too!

what made Venice a reservoir of knowledge about what happened during the medieval and Renaissance periods in the MEdit region?

Its maritime and political logs. Every detail of every voyage and every political decision made of consequence is logged in its archives.

The Dukes of Venice had one salient objective in those troubled times as guardians of a city republic : Ensuring Venetian independence through commerce, naval supremacy via imperial trading bases in the medit. islands around Greece upto the Black Sea. 

How Venice survived from 1100 to 1700 as a beacon of republican independence, thriving commercial and cultural beacon, in a region fraught with imperial and papal warring ambitions, is a story in itself.

But Venice NEVER cheated on its tradition of writing  down its history to leave to ITS posterity to learn from.

There is a moral in this story ; if you want to learn from the past and if you cherish freedom never obliterate the trail of decision making and factual events; its your most precious compass into the future to ensure enduring freedom. Learning from the past ensures your future! 

Cheating with the past ensures the contrary.

+1 a republic that deletes or sanitizes it's own memory down to the secret archives is definitely sabotaging itself - 1984 (the book) is after all fiction

and yet the Most Serene Republic had a neglected reason for it's candor: the 2000 noble families of the Golden Book had a very socialist/egalitarian approach to themselves, and conservatively sent their young scions as soldiers on the state galleys

a good, healthy mix of liberal commerce practices (punctuated by searches for monopolies), egalitarian support (for themselves and their clients) and conservative (fraternal) upbringing of the next generation to duty vs their nation

Unlike their rivals of Genoa who were composed of very elitist, rival, family feudal clans in their governance of Genoa over the centuries, preferring to sell themselves and their galleys, transporting soldiers/wealth, to their royal clients (the french kings on crusade), or subsequently to the highest bidder  (Habsburg emperor) and fighting amongst themselves. It took an Andrea Doria to stop that rot, in a city that looked like New York of that age (tall 8 story buildings).

Two very different models Venice and Genoa over that 500 year rivalry.

It would have made sense if the airstrike data "disporportionately places an emphasis on airstrikes" as they claim, to include surveillance/reconaissance and intelligence-gathering drone flight data along with airstrike data so that we could see for ourselves the airstrikes in proporttion to the non-airstrike flights and thereby draw our own conclusions.
