Rewriting History At The Ministry Of Truth

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

― George Orwell, 1984

Usually I focus on how the climate mafia rewrites historical climate data, but they are just as willing to rewrite people’s words.  On the eve of the election August 16, 2010, Julia Gillard said “There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead.”

Six months later she introduced a carbon tax.

She wasn’t quite as good at lying as her boyfriend Barry.

So the press simply rewrote what she said, adding “but let me be clear: I will be putting a price on carbon and I will move to an emissions trading scheme.

The “but let me be clear” phrase was actually an Obama favorite.  Gillard never said anything like that.  Here is the actual conversation.

There seems to be no limits on how corrupt and dishonest the left and their propagandists in the press are willing to be.

    She shouldn’t wear a black skirt with a white jacket. Never, ever, do that…. it only makes things worse

  2. John of Cloverdale, WA, Australia says:

    Our new Prime Minister is not allergic to a bit of carbon.

  3. Rah says:

    It’s like they ignore the fact that people have all kinds of alternative sources to get news these days

    • Gator says:

      Leftists know that they only need to fool enough people to swing the vote their way, and that the vast majority of people are too busy chasing their cakes and circuses to have time to dig for the truth. It’s a numbers game.

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      Leftists do play a numbers game but they don’t ignore alternative news sources.

      They work to marginalize them or shut them down. They are good at the numbers game but they don’t like playing it and they find it insulting to even have to do it.

      They work to put themselves in a position where electoral numbers don’t matter anymore just as they have always done in history.

      • Norman Hurst says:

        Well, wouldn’t we want that? After all, they’re sooo much smarter than the rest of us, they naturally should rule the world!

  4. Alan Tomalty says:

    She added at the end that she would put a cap on carbon pollution. The press should have questioned her on that; in that how could that jive with a promise of no carbon tax?

  5. Psalmon says:

    The ONLY way the Left win elections is by lying. O did it. Bill Clinton did it. When the Left talk about having the “right” candidate…they mean who can LIE with abandon and do it convincingly. Voters in the US already saw Hillary as untrustworthy AND she can’t lie convincingly.

    This is why we want Bernie or another such Dem nominee. Like Ocasio Cortez the Left are in that phase of “just tell them what we really want to do.” Walter Mondale: “I will raise your taxes.” They will lose for a couple cycles until they find another slick liar.

    • Johansen says:

      Yeah, poor Mondale. A real nice guy that got stuck serving under Pres. Carter, and then went up against Reagan, the ‘great communicator’. Just born at a bad time in history

  6. AndyDC says:

    Democrats increase taxes and regulations. Republicans reduce taxes and regulations. Who in their right minds vote for a Democrat???

    • Johansen says:

      AndyDC – lots of people *don’t pay* any income taxes, in fact they *get money sent to them* which is known as the “Earned Income Credit”. People lie about how many dependents they have, and receive a check for $15,000-20,000, and many of those *don’t even live* in the 50 states. They just maintain addresses in San Diego and L.A. and other places. This has been documented to be in the TENS of BILLIONS each year.

      Regulations? lots and lots of people don’t have to deal with business regulations. They don’t live in that world. Corporations are evil. They exploit workers and pollute the water and air. Many – if not most – in the education bureaucracy think along these lines

    The trouble is these people Believe. Evidence, who need evidence?

    Turnbull is a ex-Goldman Sachs partner and elitist. With all the elites telling him thermaggedon is imminent he Believes.

    So rather than lie blatantly like Gillard he tried to edge a carbon tax in the door like a smelly wet dog sneaking inside, without calling it a carbon tax. That’s why he was booted.

    There is the problem: Turnbull was the leader of the supposedly right wing party in our country, yet he defied his own supporters and adopted left wing policies. The RINOs in the US are the same. These people urgently and fanatically want to save the world, but resolutely the world keeps on not needing to be saved.

    Turnbull is in NY this week with his wife. I hope they stay there.
