War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

George Orwell (1903- 1950), 1984

As I listen to Josh Ernest, Obama’s spokesman, and Obama himself, explain how the U.S. is winning the war on ISIS as ISIS captures one city after another and gains more territory in the Middle East and Africa and as ObamaCare is such a resounding success, despite dashed promises on keeping your doctor and lowering premiums, I cannot help by think of George Orwell’s fable , to wit:

War is peace. The ISIS war is peace for we have no combat troops in the region.

Freedom is slavery. Freedom enslaves us to capitalists.

Ignorance is strength. What you don’t know can’t hurt you.

Withdrawal is advance. Withdrawal advances America’s cause because you become the world’s nice guy.

Facts are fiction. Don't believe your lying eyes.

Nonstrategy is strategy. You just wait and see.

Defeat is victory. No matter what military critics say.

Losing is winning. Your enemies will respect you more for losing.

Secrecy is transparency. To be perfectly clear is perfectly ridiculous.

Weakness is diplomacy. Look weak and others will give the benefit of doubt.

Blame is elsewhere. Setbacks are always someone else’s fault.

Promises are temporary. They are made to be broken.

Disapproval is approval. When the majority disapprove, you must be doing something right for the minority.
