The Orwellian Trump Administration

Post by Pyperkub » Wed May 29, 2019 3:43 pm

Thread for pure Orwellian doublespeak from the Ministry for Truth.

I'll start with freedom gas:
DOE Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy Steven Winberg is quoted as saying, "With the US in another year of record-setting natural gas production, I am pleased that the Department of Energy is doing what it can to promote an efficient regulatory system that allows for molecules of US freedom to be exported to the world.”

Also in the press release, US Under Secretary of Energy Mark W. Menezes refers to natural gas as "freedom gas" in his quote: “Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving America’s allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy."
There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

If this was on a TV show or movie, no one would believe it.

He needs to be called Mark "Freedom Gas" Menezes in perpetuity. You want it? You got it.

This is somehow a theme with these morons:

Trump Adviser Once Compared Carbon Dioxide to Jewish Victims of the Nazis.
“The demonization of carbon dioxide is just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler,” he said at the time in a televised interview with CNBC. “Carbon dioxide is actually a benefit to the world, and so were the Jews.”

Happer, a Princeton-educated physicist with no climate background, leads the Trump administration’s efforts to overturn restrictions on air pollution and other factors that contribute to global warming. As the president’s deputy assistant for emerging technologies, he is a member of the National Security Council.
Much prefer my Nazis Nuremberged.
