The Orwell Wittgenstein Affect

Starfish gave her wife a long loving look before she headed out the door. She was going to the airport to pick up a French agent who was keen on playing a high-level guessing game as to what files came in Trump’s possession, and, did he show them to a enemy agent. The French were also trained in ZYX theory where the worst is assumed at Z, and, then the conclusion is degraded. Our human reluctance not to judge a fellow human being – is powerful – and predates Biblical input. A true villain has no mercy.

Alone, Victoria Bond went deep into her acute concentration gift that she honed when she worked in the College of Arms. She had a knack for being able to read between the lines of the historic submissions that needed approval before a cote of arms was issued. There was this need to exaggerate, coupled with the need to hide aspects of family history, so others who behold the family coat of arms, get the final and complete message. Because the audience is so limited, there was a hidden gentleman’s agreement, to overlook an occurrence that happened in most noble families. There was a member who dressed-down the whole grand affair, and threatened to destroy The Grand Affect. When Victoria looked at George Orwell’s genealogy, she was reminded of the Wittenstein coat of arms, that was not approved because this was a Jewish Family, and the wealthiest family in Vienna. All the sons did some serious dressing down, and made a point to slap their heritage with a iron glove. Then, Victoria looked at other famous writers and philosophers to see if they owned a coat of arms. She found one for Thomas Pynchon. All three writers had one thing in common. They loved WORD PLAY. The three appeared to believe that world play was the final frontier……The Last Quest.

I will be sending DeFazio and others another e-mail about the EMPTY papers shown at a press conference in 2017. If they are FOR REAL then there should be a record of their existance.

My Congressman replied to my concern, that the untitled folders Trump and his family presented to the Press and the American People, contain blank pieces of paper that are supposed to be proof the Trumps are no longer doing business that conflicts with serving the people. Conway would later bid Americans to buy Ivanka’s crap. It appears she is outside the loop. She needs to go before the Senate and tell the truth.

Response From Peter DeFazio | Rosamond Press

Sheri Dillon needs to be questioned. Follow the money trail.

“Both Mr Trump and his lawyer Sheri Dillon pointed at those documents and claimed they were just part of the various papers required to separate Mr Trump from his business. They each pointed at the pile repeatedly as proof that the preparations were being made.

— — The lawyers who wrote a letter saying President Trump had no significant business ties to Russia work for a law firm that has extensive ties to Russia and received a “Russia Law Firm of the Year” award in 2016.

Sheri Dillon and William Nelson, tax partners at the law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, which has served as tax counsel to Trump and the Trump Organization since 2005, wrote a letter in March released by the White House on Friday stating that a review of the last 10 years of Trump’s tax returns “do not reflect” ties to Russia “with a few exceptions.”

In 2016, however, Chambers & Partners, a London-based legal research publication, named the firm “Russia Law Firm of the Year” at its annual awards dinner. The firm celebrated the “prestigious honor” in a press release on its website, noting that the award is “the latest honor for the high-profile work performed by the lawyers in Morgan Lewis’ Moscow office.”

According to the firm’s website, its Moscow office includes more than 40 lawyers and staff who are “well known in the Russian market, and have a deep familiarity with the local legislation, practices, and key players.” The firm boasts of being “particularly adept” at advising clients on “sanction matters.”

Following the release of the letter, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn) noted the firm’s connection to Russia, calling it “unreal.”

During Donald Trump‘s press conference on Wednesday, he introduced his attorney, Sheri Dillon, who spoke about how she will be helping the President-elect navigate his business and potential conflict of interest issues so that he is not a part of business

Thomas Fane, 8th Earl of Westmorland – Wikipedia

Thomas Fane, 8th Earl of Westmorland (March 1701 – 25 November 1771) was a British MP for Lyme Regis and a lord commissioner of trade. He was an ancestor of the writer George Orwell.

Earl of Westmorland – Wikipedia

Earl of Westmorland is a title that has been created twice in the Peerage of England. The title was first created in 1397 for Ralph Neville. It was forfeited in 1571 by Charles Neville, 6th Earl of Westmorland for leading the Rising of the North. It was revived in 1624 in favour of Sir Francis Fane, whose mother, Mary Neville, was a descendant of a younger son of the first Earl. The first Earl of the first creation had already become Baron Neville de Raby, and that was a subsidiary title for his successors. The current Earl holds the subsidiary title Baron Burghersh

Reply from Congressman Peter DeFazio

Dear Mr. Presco

Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns with the outcome of the presidential election. I appreciate hearing from you on this important topic.

Following the November 8 election I have heard from hundreds of my constituents who are worried about their personal safety, civil rights and freedoms and that of their children and communities   under   the Trump Administration.

I signed on to a letter with over 160 of my colleagues to President-elect Trump urging him to rescind his appointment of Stephen Bannon as White House Chief Strategist. As the Executive Chairman of Breitbart News, Bannon repeatedly published stories that promote racism, xenophobia, misogyny and anti-Semitism. The appointment runs counter to Trump’s election night promise to be a president to all Americans and sets a troubling precedent for his administration.

I plan to fight any attempts to weaken, privatize or dismantle Social Security or Medicare. I will continue to push for a reversal of Citizens United, so the voice of American citizens is no longer drowned out by dark corporate campaign cash. I will push back on any proposals to undo consumer financial protections that allow big banks to prey on working Americans.

We live in a constitutional representative democracy. The President does not possess dictatorial powers. There  is a need to bring the country back together.  In the coming years, Congress and the Trump Administration will have to work to find common ground. I n particular, I look forward to working with this administration on a new  trade policy. I have voted against each and every so-called “free trade agreement,” which have exported quality American jobs to seek out the cheapest, most exploitable labor around the world. We need to change that.

Additionally, President-Elect Trump has talked about a trillion dollar investment in our crumbling infrastructure. That money could be well-spent to put hundreds of thousands of people to work, make our country more competitive, get people out of congestion , and save on fuel. I have ideas about how to fund that investment and I look forward to working with  him on  that when possible.

I will otherwise look for places where we can make common cause. W hen I find it necessary to disagree with this administration and their proposed policies, as I have with every president, Democrat or Republican, I will do my best to represent my district and the needs of my people, my state, and our country as best I can.

We’re the oldest representative democracy on Earth, and we’ve withstood a lot of crises. We’ve had a civil war, where we killed one another within our own country. We’ve been through the Great Depression, and even the threat of Nazism. We’ve stood up to a lot of things, and we can find common cause to draw together again.  You can be sure I will continue to  support vital programs and the fight for equality for individuals of every religion, gender, sexual orientation, and race.

 Thanks again for contacting me, and for your engagement in the political process. Please keep in touch.

 Sincerely,

U.S. REPRESENTATIVE PETER DeFAZIO

To: Congressman Peter de Fazio and Senator Ron Wyden

At his press conference, Donald Trump produced a stack of legal documents he would not let reporters see. He says the read, and signed, papers, turned his business over to his children who will get everything when he dies. Why not leave everything to the American People, now, and let his children make their own money, like most of us who don’t have a legacy? Many suspect there were blank pieces of paper inside. Is this a hoax?

I am asking my Congressman and Senator to put these documents in the public domain. There is a precedent for doing this, being Revolutionary War Veterans, and their Widows, had to submit papers to the United States Government, and, undergo questioning, in order to receive some of the first monies given by our Founding Fathers to our first citizens. This was the case of my kindred, Captain Samuel Rosamond, and his first wife, Ann Pressley, also spelled, Presley. There was even an instance where cash grants were given to families who were on the brink of starvation due to our desire to be free. Why not author a Trump Trust that goes to paying off the National Debt? Every three months Ivanka can recite how much debt has been paid by the Trump Dynasty. When Trump leaves office, he and his children would be free to make, and keep, as much money as they want.  Who knows, Obama might give Donald an award – before he takes office!

In looking at my family tree, and these records, we see slaves being left in the Wills of brave men who founded one of the strongest democracies the world has ever known, thus these chained men and women contributed to the financial strength of our nation’s first families. They took care of the children and property of these fighting men. I suggest that anyone who can produce evidence they were the property of these world famous Rebels, be compensated. I suggest the First Family to be, offer a Freedom Bounty to the grandchildren of slaves. This amount can be determined by our elected Lawmakers, or, by all members of the Trump family who subscribe to economic incentives – and higher education! A thousand dollars can go to school supplies.

Because Trump and Putin have a great interest in Coats of Arms, any slave descendant of a family who owned a Coat of Arms, will be awarded a special Freedom Coat of Arms that will contain the image of The Liberty Tree, along with their family name.

Because the Republicans put before our Lawmakers one frivolous Bill after another, may I suggest a Bill be introduced that forbid President Trump from forming a motorcycle club modeled after the Knight Wolves of Russia, who are considered Putin’s storm troopers. The leader of the Knight Wolves wants additions made to the Russia Coat of Arms that Putin installed, that contains a SERPENT and TWO-HEADED EAGLE!

“And the President will wear no colors of any motorcycle club lest it appear his intention is to ride hard all over the countryside, and with other lawless men, terrorize the good citizenry.”

Elvis Presley was kin to President Carter, and may be in my family tree, along with Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor.

Trump and Putin passionately kiss in street mural

VILNIUS, LITHUANIA - NOVEMBER 23:  A woman walks past a mural showing U.S. President-elect Donald Trump (R) blowing marijuana smoke into the mouth of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the wall of a bar-b-que restaurant on November 23, 2016 in Vilnius, Lithuania. Many people in the three Baltic nations of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are concerned that Russia, because Trump has expressed both admiration for Putin and doubt over defending NATO member states, will be emboldened to intervene militarily in the Baltics.

Kestutis Girnius, associate professor of the Institute of International Relations and Political Science in Vilnius university, told AFP -This graffiti expresses the fear of some Lithuanians that Donald Trump is likely to kowtow to Vladimir Putin and be indifferent to Lithuanias security concerns. Trump has notoriously stated that Putin is a strong leader, and that NATO is obsolete and expensive.

Both Mr Trump and his lawyer Sheri Dillon pointed at those documents and claimed they were just part of the various papers required to separate Mr Trump from his business. They each pointed at the pile repeatedly as proof that the preparations were being made.

But reporters were not allowed to look at any of the documents, which all were held in folders meaning that the actual paper was hidden.https://d-2308221020173633456.ampproject.net/2207281718002/frame.html

And the pages themselves appear to be blank. While the majority of the sheets were hidden, some of them were visible – and there was no sign of page numbers or the sticky notes that lawyers tend to use to mark places in large documents.

The paper itself also appeared to be the wrong size, printed on A4 rather than legal size sheets, and appears to have fallen like fresh sheets of paper. And the folders themselves were also entirely blank, despite Mr Trump suggesting that each of them related to a different business that Mr Trump was moving himself away from.

It is possible that the documents had been printed precisely for the press conference, but the fact that reporters weren’t allowed to check the details of the documents led to concern that they didn’t include any information at all.

The room also appears to have been filled with staff members, as well as the reporters who attended the event. Those staff members laughed and applauded throughout the conference, in noted contrast with the occasional hostility from journalists.

The papers supposedly put Mr Trump’s business assets into a trust. But they also hand over the management of his international real estate development, property management and licensing company based in New York to his sons.

Trump and the company are taking steps to assure Americans that he is “not exploiting the office of the presidency for his personal benefit,” said Sheri Dillon of the firm Morgan Lewis & Bockius.

Word games: Wittgenstein, Orwell, Humpty Dumpty and Big Brother

June 27, 2022, 2:19 PM IST Jug Suraiya in Juggle-BandhiLifestyleWorld, TOIFACEBOOKTWITTERLINKEDINEMAIL

A former associate editor with the Times of India, Jug Suraiya writes two regular columns for the print edition, Jugular Vein, which appears every Friday, and Second Opinion, … MORE

Hailed by many as the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, Ludwig Wittgenstein was deeply suspicious of the tautologies and contradictions in language which made much of metaphysical speculation sense-less (sinnlos) or non-sensical (unsinning).

   He summed up his mistrust of the verbal in the famous conclusion to his Tractatus Logico Philosophicus: “Whereof we cannot speak, thereof we must remain silent.” As a postscript, in his Philosophical Investigations he added the caveat that “A language understandable by only a single individual is incoherent.”

   Perhaps he had in mind the exchange between Alice and Humpty Dumpty, who proclaimed “When I use a word it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.”

   When Alice responded by asking whether one can make words mean so many different things, Humpty ended the discussion with the magisterial pronouncement: “The question is which is to be master – that’s all.”

   The German philosopher and Carroll’s anthropomorphic egg might have found much matter for debate in two recent occurrences in India.   

   At about the same time that the home minister made his controversial statement urging his fellow citizens, from whichever state they came, to speak to each other in Hindi, Tomb of Sand, a Hindi novel by author Geetanjali Shree became the first book translated from an indigenous Indian language to win the International Booker Prize, casting the global spotlight on the subcontinental’s rashtrabhasha. 

   The novel – which tells the story of an 80-year-old Indian widow who travels to Pakistan to exorcise the spectre of a trauma she suffered as a young girl during the Partition riots – was also shortlisted for the 2021 French Emile Guimet Prize for Asian Literature.

   The minister’s remark and the acclaimed novel reflect two opposing aspects of language: its use as a creative force that binds all humanity together, and its abuse as divisive ideological propaganda.

   Language, all language, is an inseparable amalgam of the two primary elements which constitute what we call humanity: empathy and logic.

   Empathy is the instinct which makes us feel an affinity with others, even those who may be strangers to us, see something of our own selves in them, and respond to them as we would have them respond to us.

   Logic devises the methods – by way of signs, or pictograms, or alphabets and words – by which we communicate this empathy, this oneness with one another.

   Language, all language, is logical empathy. Without empathy we would have no desire to communicate with each other; without logic we would be unable to formulate a common means of doing so. 

   Language is the currency of logical empathy in all our doings, from sending text messages to creating literature, from discussing the latest Bollywood movie to exploring the nuances of a complex emotional relationship.

   But, like other currencies, language can also be counterfeited, turned into something spurious that undermines its own value. This is the abuse of language, converting it from a negotiable instrument of logical empathy into its opposite, a forgery that seeks to divide rather than unite. When a language, any language, is sought to be forced upon people for political reasons, or for any other ulterior motive, it creates barriers of resistance rather than bridges of communication.

   In his allegory of a dystopian society, modelled on Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany, 1984, George Orwell depicted how language can be used as a weapon of mass destruction aimed at both logic and empathy.

   In Orwell’s fictive dictatorship of Oceania, the inhabitants are made to chant Newspeak slogans like ‘War is Peace’ and ‘Love is Hate’, a distortion of language used to foment ‘doublethink’, mass brainwashing monitored by the Thought Police under the command of a supreme leader known as Big Brother.

   Orwell’s cautionary tale about the abuse of language to buttress authoritarianism strikes a chord in today’s India where Hindi, a language with a rich cultural heritage, is sought by fiat to be given precedence over the 21 other officially recognised national languages, besides the hundreds of dialects, each of which represents the multilingual discourse of democracy, and each of which has the inalienable right to have its say in its own voice, its own way of saying ‘No’ to a would-be Big Brother. 

   Or to Humpty Dumpty.
