Political Lies: Democrats Increase Game to New Level as We Approach the Election

By Robert Ringer - Monday, March 19, 2012

There’s an old saying, sometimes attributed to Newt Gingrich, that “They can lie louder, but we can tell the truth longer.” I’d like to believe that, but after years of watching the Lying Left in action, I’m not so sure about it.

Based on how they’ve ramped up their game since the Obamaviks arrived in Washington back in 2009, I’m convinced that the Lying Left possesses the audacity, the shamelessness, and the relentlessness required to tell the most outrageous and vile lies every bit as long as those of us who love liberty can tell the truth.

Ho Chi Minh once said that Americans were “short of breath.” By that he meant they did not have the will to go the distance and defeat North Vietnam and the Viet Cong. If he had had more knowledge of American politics, he might have revised his statement to say that it is pseudo-conservative Americans who are short of breath.

The Lying Left has been blessed with a cesspool of bona fide marathon liars, and is well aware that most professed conservatives have neither the strength nor the character to match their outrageous lies with the truth indefinitely.

The worst-kept secret in Washington is that Republicans are easily intimidated by the Lying Left. At the first sight of blood, mushy RINOs fold under such euphemisms as “compromise,” “bipartisanship,” and “Americans want us to work together.”

The uncouth among us might be inclined to refer to such euphemisms as crap. But since such language is beneath me, I prefer to say that conservative truths have a tendency to morph into lies over time. Compromise is a lie. Bipartisanship is a lie. The desire for Democrats and Republicans to work together is a lie. What these euphemisms really mean is more government control, more regulation, higher taxes, and less liberty.

That’s why the leading Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, has no intention of trying to tell the truth longer than the Lying Left is prepared to lie. The latest example of this is his amazing statement that “we’re in a recovery mode, finally.”

Really? America is $15 trillion in debt (and on the way to $25 trillion or more in the next ten years), has $50-$100 trillion in unfunded Social Security and Medicare liabilities, is suffering a real unemployment rate (according to Gallup) of 10.3 percent, and 46 million people are on food stamps — and we’re in a recovery mode? Democrats must be thinking, “With opponents like Romney, who needs supporters?”

The endurance of the Lying Left is a testament to the efficacy of one of Saul Alinsky’s most cherished community-organizing strategies: Isolate and target your enemies (usually those who work for a living and respect the rights of others), then overwhelm them with lies. If you’re caught with your pants on fire, not a problem. Just put out the blaze quickly and double down on your lies.

The biggest lie of all, of course, is Obamacare — this week’s hot topic among Beltwayans. The media is in a frenzy trying to smooth over the question of how BHO could have been so “inaccurate” when he was trying to sell his Obamonstrosity to the giddy American public back in his B.S. heyday. Now, the whole unconstitutional mess is rapidly becoming a buffet of lies.

For starters, the $1 trillion cost is a lie. Though the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) now projects the cost of Obamacare to be roughly double that amount, the truth is that, if it is not overturned or repealed, it will end up costing many multiplies of the original “estimate.”

Then there were the endless times that the Duplicitous Despot assured us that anyone who wanted to keep his doctor or his current health insurance would be able to do so. That, too, turned out to be a lie. Various estimates are that anywhere from 14 to 20 million workers are going to lose their current healthcare as a result of Obamacare.

The Lying Left, however, points out that the CBO says that most of these workers will qualify for Obamacare benefits, so they will simply be shifted into government-run healthcare. But that’s the whole point! It was clear from the outset that the purpose of Obama’s signature piece of socialist legislation was to force everyone into the government-run healthcaresystem and push insurance companies out of business.

The Lying Left is also emphasizing that 30 million previously uninsured people will now be covered. Isn’t that great? The official name for this achievement is redistribution of wealth.

Of course, some members of the Lying Left occasionally let their egos and arrogance get the best of them and unthinkingly tell the truth when they want to shove their agenda into the faces of their opponents.

That’s what happened with Donald Berwick, whom Obama named as the Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in 2010, when he said, in a 2008 speech about the UK healthcare system, “Any healthcare funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized, and humane must — must — redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is by definition redistributional.”

Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, another card-carrying member of the Lying Left, made the same kind of ego-oriented mistake, also in 2008, when he said, “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

Government-created rights … food stamps … unemployment benefits … Social Security … Medicare … Card Check … global warming … green energy … Cap and Trade … artificially low interest rates … fiat currency … lies, lies, and more lies.

The founder of the Lying Left, Vladimir Lenin, undoubtedly would have scolded both Berwick and Chu if he were alive today. Lenin made the rules of the game clear when he famously said, “To tell the truth is a petty bourgeois habit, whereas for us to lie is justified by our objectives.”

And he would have chuckled at today’s Republicans, who don’t have strong enough convictions to seriously challenge the Lying Left. It would please him greatly to see that there are still plenty of useful idiots around who can be manipulated into helping collectivists achieve their goals.

All of which raises the question: How do we go about putting a presidential candidate in place who has the courage to match the Lying Left, lie for lie, with the truth — and then some?

If you know the answer to this question, please do not hesitate to step forward and speak your piece, because the way things look right now, conservatives are once again about to be sold out.

ON FACEBOOK:

A great post from Modern Minuteman:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have found it extremely perplexing as to how difficult it can be (and generally is) to open the eyes and/or minds of those that absolutely refuse to see the writing on the wall. I've been doing a crap ton of research for the past 4 years or so...been down the proverbial "rabbit hole"...and educated myself to the reality of the world, the country, the wars and 100 other things...and when I tell you the rabbit hold is deep...I mean it's DEEP, DEEP, DEEP!!! I can tell you with much confidence the "reality" of how things really are is a lot different than most people think and more specifically want to accept, because it's far too painful for the minds of most.

I've come to the conclusion that the vast majority of 'sheeple' we all run into will not accept the truth until it literally smacks them in the face and even then it's questionable. I'm astounded by how many people just absolutely REFUSE to see what's going on in the country and the world.

From the Patriot Act, to the invention of the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security (do people realize Hitler used words and phrases like "protect the Homeland") to the NDAA to HR 347 to NDRP and the militarization of the police forces around the nation (and that's just scratching the surface). The blatant whittling away of the fabric of our freedoms has become so overt it makes me want to scream at the top of my lungs "WAKE UP PEOPLE"!!! Yet, nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care.

The masses seem to accept everything they hear on the all telling truth box we call the T.V. with out question. When one try's to explain to them it's all propaganda they look at you as if you're some 'conspiracy theorist' or like you have 10 heads.

I've tried to wake up my family, my friends, loved ones and have been met with so much resistance it's sickening. When I see the programming of the mind that has happened to most people cause such refusal to see, hear or accept the truth it infuriates me. The mofo's in power through out the last several generations have been and still are extremely smart in their ways and tactics of programming the minds and instilling fear into the masses.

Fear is very paralyzing. Fear will cause other wise good people to do NOTHING even when everything is collapsing around them.

If anyone has any ideas for waking people up short of a size 12 boot in their asses, I'm sure sitting here with an open mind and open ears.

In the words of the late George Carlin "Right's aren't rights if someone can take'em away, they're nothing more than a list of temporary privileges"

Have we all been deluding ourselves that our rights are nothing more than a list of temporary privileges and when the powers that be decide our rights are no longer in their best interest, they can just take them?

In closing...just to mention yet another overt middle finger to the people by the powers that be....Leon Panetta tells the Senate/Congress they seek authorization from International entities for approval for war...and oh, by the way, if we feel it's relevant "well let'cha know" if we decide to go to war.....THEN....THEN....he goes to Afghanistan to give a speech to a few hundred soldiers/marines and has them disarm? Are you freaking kidding me? Disarm? REALLY? Gee, I wonder what it is that he could possibly be worried about.

We've been sold out people. We've been completely sold out and it's happened right under our noses. ("sigh")

Oh yeah, one more thing...I personally think that if we end up seeing a 'doomsday' scenario, I firmly believe it will be man made, man induced, man created...like this Iran crap...yeah, sure, lets go swat that hornets nest...because we need to piss off the 2 other largest super powers on the planet...Russia and China. If we do (or get involved in) that Iran thing, God help us all because it won't end well.

In my inbox:

Gray-Haired Brigade
They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are "Baby Boomers" getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.
In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.
We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn't fight for the Socialist States of America ; we fought for the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave." We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America,and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read in
history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.
Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.
It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the "Hope and Change" which in reality was nothing but "Hype and Lies." You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don't like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or "Climbing the Social Ladder" to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the "Great Lie" in 2008 are now having buyer's remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn't have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the 'Kool-Aid.' Now you're paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what
you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.
Well, don't worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2012 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we're going, and in 2012 we're going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to "We the People" and "We the People" plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the "Grey-Haired Brigade."
Author, Anon. Grey-Haired Brigade Member

Footnote: This is spot on. I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on. I will circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this once great county. Can you feel the ground shaking??? It's not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.

America’s Problem is Government Taking Away People’s Freedom: Does Rick Santorum Agree with Ron Paul?

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, March 22, 2012

To say the least, I’m not a big Rick Santorum fan. Even so, I am obliged to say I was impressed by his statement earlier this week that “the issue in the presidential race is not the economy, but an oppressive government that’s taking away people’s freedom.” Love him or hate him, Santorum was spot on with that one.

The ever-worsening state of the economy (and, yes, it is getting worse) is but a symptom of the ever-worsening state of our freedom (the cause). The government cannot “fix” the economy. Only free people can do that.

The government, however, is quite capable of making the economy worse. George W. Bush proved that, and Barack Obama is making him look like a free-market champion by comparison.

Kids who can’t open a lemonade stand without fear of being fined are not living in a free country. An Idaho couple that has to take its case all the way to the Supreme Court just to earn the right to challenge an Environmental Protection Agency ruling that their property is a “protected wetland,” and that they are therefore barred from building on it, is not living in a free country.

When the government can take your money and redistribute it to others, force you to buy a product you do not want, spy on you without cause, even kill you — you are not living in a free country. Ron Paul has been preaching this message for more than three decades, so, quite naturally, he is reviled by the establishment in both wings of the Demopublican Party.

In case you’ve never seen them before, here are Paul’s Six Forgotten Principles of Freedom:

Rights belong to individuals, not groups.
Property was intended to be owned by people, not governments.
All voluntary associations should be permissible, both economic and social.
The government’s monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not to participate in fraud by debauching it.
The justification for the existence of government is to protect the liberty of individuals, not to redistribute wealth or pass out special privileges.
People’s lives and actions are their own responsibility, not the government’s.

Now, if Rick Santorum is willing to sign off on all of the above, I’d be happy to welcome him into the Freedom Fighters Club. Anytime a politician arrives at the point where he agrees with Ron Paul’s Six Forgotten Principles of Freedom, it’s one less enemy that we, the people, have to worry about.

From facebook:


Thanks goes to JoDee Stout for this.

IN GOD WE TRUST....
This is spot-on.
PLEASE, READ THIS TO THE END. IT IS VERY INTERESTING!!!

Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world's largest private employer, and most speak English.

6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this
in only fifteen years.

8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth's population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.

You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To all 535 voting members of the Legislature

It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years
to get it right and it is broke.

b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it
right and it is broke.

c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right
and it is broke.

d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right;
$1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the
poor" and they only want more..

e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years
to get it right and they are broke.

f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right
and it is broke.

g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence
on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion
a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right
and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our
throats while overspending our tax dollars.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED
WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM ??

Folks, keep this circulating.. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected' (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.
AND

I know what's wrong. We have lost our minds to "Political Correctness" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey .. And now Pakistan ........previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks…

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.

Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn't it?

99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.

I'm one of the 1% -- I Just Did
