“To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again: and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself — that was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word ‘doublethink’ involved the use of doublethink.”
George Orwell, from “1984”, 1949
It’s July 2018, and the Great Artificial Drought has been broken by the slow, steady, widespread and ever-increasing distribution of simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices in the vicinity of the weather warfare infrastructure that many still mistakenly presume only carries cell phone traffic and weather radar data.
The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. One of those variants is “astonished”.
That’s why one of the stories I’ve appended below reads “Florida shatters May rain record by astonishing margin.”
What’s particularly funny about that is that they don’t go into much detail beyond that as to what the margin actually is:
“From Key West to Pensacola, Florida averaged 9.23 inches of rain in May, topping the 2009 record of 8.91 inches in measurements that have been logged since 1895.”
You can see how they gave you the numbers, but carefully hedged by withholding the percentage increase between them. 8.91 to 9.23 is a 3.5% increase. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. As a bonus, “topping” falsely implies that it just barely beat it.
Let’s look deeper into the same story:
“In West Palm Beach, 11.41 inches of rain fell last month, ranking May as the 11th wettest on record, but the tally is still a whopping 6.9 inches more than what’s normal for the month.”
Like “mystery”, “baffled”, “puzzled” and “astonishing”, “whopping” is also a meme, a careful hedge, in that they’ve again withheld the percentage, and I again had to do the math. 6.9 to 11.41 is 65% above the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins.
The story from Florida makes no mention of the fact that these records are part of a wider trend. Neither do any of the other stories below, either. That’s a Propaganda technique called “compartmentalization.”
The Illuminist talking-head shill quoted in the article says that Global Warming Did It. Sort of:
“It’s not fair to say that having the wettest May on record is due to climate change, but having events like that is consistent with climate change,” Zarzycki said. “We would expect these records to get broken more frequently as the climate changes, that’s the direction we are going.”
And so, thus, Global Warming did and also did not cause the record rainfall in Florida. That’s an example of what George Orwell called “Doublethink.”
It’s plain to see that things have changed, permanently, and we can see that the propaganda rebutting the transformation is not changing. That means X is going to run into Y at some point in the future, and I suggest that their intersection is not very far off.
I’d ask the reader to remember that I’ve been putting forth the same basic theses in this thread for four straight years, now (which we can call “J”). My message is not changing, and it’s going to coincide with X and Y at some point, also.
Whose version is correct? Truth will out over time, as they say.
In the meantime, I must invite you to use your personal discernment to come to your own conclusions on the matter.

This month will beat June 1993 as the wettest June on record thanks to several rounds of heavy rainfall throughout the month. It’s the first time in 25 years that Rockford has seen double digit rainfall totals during a one-month span.
June 1993 had 11.85″ of rainfall, and was the closest Rockford has been to a foot of rain on the record books, going back to 1906. This month is up to 12.03″, with another week to go to add to the tally. Average for June is 4.65
(You can see how they gave you the numbers, but carefully hedged by withholding the percentage increase between them. 4.65 to 12.03 is 158% above average. – ed).
