We are living in the hell inhabited by Alice In Wonderland as written by George Orwell. I am referring to the incredible, shameful propaganda campaign Joe Biden is using to douse the American public in bullshit. We see this in his declaration that the retreat from Aghanistan was a smashing success even though he broke his promise to leave no Americans behind.

But it is not just confined to the debacle in Afghanistan. We also see the scam in the establishment medical community and mainstream media, who are engaged in a concerted effort to smear and debunk effective palliative and therapeutic treatments of Covid–such as Ivermectin–while covering up the documented adverse effects of various Covid vaccines.
We have witnessed this kind of fantastical, delusional “messaging” in failed authoritarian regimes, such as Nazi Germany, the former Soviet Union, Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge and Mao’s China. But we were warned about this public delusion well before the 20th Century and the rise of dictators and despots.

If these weavers existed today they would be lobbyists hived along K Street in Washington, DC or contractors embedded on the Dulles corridor with their lips firmly planted on the asses of the bureaucrats that fill the corridors of the CIA, the Department of Defense and the Department of State. The men were nothing more than con artists gifted at telling vain politicians and a gullible, fearful public “facts” that are dog feces painted gold.
Back to Andersen’s story. The Emperor was eager to hear about the progress of the weavers in crafting his new sartorial splendor and he asked his equivalent of the “intelligence community” for an update:
