When Did Lies By Government Officials Become Acceptable?

I’m really torn here. I was taught (With a few trips to the woodshed to reinforce the premise.  Oops, forgot! Trips to the woodshed are evil in this fuzzy wuzzy feel good world)) that lying was one of the worse things I or anyone could do. I and my wife to the best of our ability instilled that premise in our children and they in turn into our grandchildren. Yet, if one wants to believe the blithering idiots defending not only the treasonous bastard that is our President as well as his lackeys and for that matter, any person that is in line with the Anti-American idealistic line that is now apparently our policy, lies are in fact not only acceptable, but in fact needed to coerce, oh, I’m sorry, I mean to convince the electorate (the lying sacks of shit that inhabit the halls of our electoral institutions would never coerce anyone to do anything I’m sure) that what they see as reality is in fact not real and only the views of the “leaders” are in fact acceptable! 

Today however, we are being told over and over by not only the MSM propaganda industry but also are power mad leaders that there are acceptable lies! Just the other day, I saw commentators voicing the opinion that there are acceptable lies when it comes to politicians. And if memory serves, we had a member of the administration (or one who had recently left a post, sorry for the lack of exact memory on this state basically the same thing that a President or other leader must at times lie to the electorate to if nothing else, make what they are trying to force down our throats more palatable! Where is the outrage? When did we as a society decide that lies are the way to go?

My last post, I wrote the following. The report I cite came out on Jan.13:

“This week we had the release of a bipartisan report from the Senate as to the fiasco that is the Benghazi Incident. In effect, it basically says what I and so many others have been saying for well over a year now. Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Barak Obama and far too many at all levels of government are nothing but lying sacks if shit who when all is said and done deceived the American people so as to keep their sorry asses in office! People died and they lied! This isn't just lack of responsibility, but is in fact now proven standard operating procedure. Lie to the people and stamp out those that try to point out the truth!”

The following from various sources is disturbing too say the least but what is worse is that even now, the lies continue!

“Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation’s top civilian and uniformed defense officials — headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama — were informed that the event was a “terrorist attack,” declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president’s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.

Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time was head of AFRICOM, the Defense Department combatant command with jurisdiction over Libya, told the House in classified testimony last year that it was him who broke the news about the unfolding situation in Benghazi to then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The tense briefing — in which it was already known that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens had been targeted and had gone missing — occurred just before the two senior officials departed the Pentagon for their session with the commander in chief.

Numerous aides to the president and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly told the public in the weeks following the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans that night — as Obama’s hotly contested bid for re-election was entering its final stretch — that there was no evidence the killings were the result of a premeditated terrorist attack, but rather were the result of a protest gone awry. Subsequent disclosures exposed the falsity of that narrative, and the Obama administration ultimately acknowledged that its early statements on Benghazi were untrue.  (One note here. Let’s not forget that the President of the United States not openly lied about the video and so forth but in fact not only lied in an address to the U.N. but also apologized, all to cover his sorry ass! Then again, I guess as too the U.N., he was just cowtowing to his handlers)

The State Department confirmed Wednesday that two Libyan groups reportedly set to be designated as terrorists took part in the Benghazi 9-11 anniversary attacks of 2012. But the Obama administration insists there is no evidence linking the attack to al Qaeda’s central leadership. (If this isn’t a line of bullshit, AlQaeda attack, but not linked to Al Qaeda, I don’t knoe what is)

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki chose her words carefully saying the branches of Ansar al-Sharia, a militia that claimed credit for the Benghazi attack in the first hours after the incident on social media were not “official affiliates” of al Qaeda. “

  “Obama hasn’t done or said a meaningful thing about the four Americans killed in Benghazi.  Obama seems to have lied about the events, sent then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice out on television to lie about how and why this tragedy happened.  The allegation that it was all due to a video on the Internet considered disrespectful to Islam was quickly proven false, yet was still embraced by the White House.” (My note here. Even now, the administration is stonewalling and putting out a false narrative. For you lefties out there that mean this bastard and his minions are lying!)

What about the great recovering economy and jobs market? President Pinocchio and his lap dog media as well as are painting a rosy picture of how well the job recovery is going. BULLSHIT!

We have the below from the Wall Street Journal, but anyone with an ounce of brains could figure this out:

“Don't believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud.

In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the 6.7 percent advertised by the Fed, and the Misery Index at over 14, not the 8 claimed by the government.

Marotta, who recently advised those worried about an imploding economy to get a gun, said that the government isn't being honest in how it calculates those out of the workforce or inflation, the two numbers used to get the Misery Index figure.

“The unemployment rate only describes people who are currently working or looking for work,” he said. That leaves out a ton more.

“Unemployment in its truest definition, meaning the portion of people who do not have any job, is 37.2 percent. This number obviously includes some people who are not or never plan to seek employment. But it does describe how many people are not able to, do not want to or cannot find a way to work. Policies that remove the barriers to employment, thus decreasing this number, are obviously beneficial,” he and colleague Megan Russell in their new investors note from their offices in Charlottesville, Va.
They added that “officially-reported unemployment numbers decrease when enough time passes to discourage the unemployed from looking for work. A decrease is not necessarily beneficial; an increase is clearly detrimental.”

Then there is the Misery Index, which is a calculation based in inflation and unemployment, both numbers the duo say are underscored by the government. He said that the Index doesn’t properly calculate how Uncle Sam is propping up the economy with bond purchases and other actions.

“These tricks, along with a host of other dubious accounting schemes, under report inflation by about 3 percent,” they wrote, adding that the official inflation rate is just 1.24 percent.
“Today, the Misery Index would be 7.54 using official numbers,” they wrote. But if calculations tabulating the full national unemployment including discouraged workers, which is 10.2 percent, and the historical method of calculating inflation, which is now 4.5 percent, ‘the current misery index is closer to 14.7, worse even than during the Ford administration.”
Rather than go on, again from my last post as to my feelings as to the lie that is the employment figures:
“Now, let’s take it one step further. Last week I saw a report that there were roughly 330,000 new applications for unemployment. For the moment, let’s leave facts such as this one for example: “Only 62.8% of the adult population is participating in the labor market, meaning they either have a job or are looking for one. That matches the lowest level since 1978. People have simply just given up looking for work.” 

Seeing the government figures the rate MINUS the people who have dropped out of the job market, the real unemployment rate is at least 13% or more. Now, correct me if I’m wrong here but 330,000 new unemployment applications minus the 74,000 new jobs created result in a net loss of 259,000 jobs even before the lying scum starts manipulating the numbers so as to mislead the public as to the reality of the situation which is dire to say the least.

Again, this is just based on basic math, something we conservatives cannot possibly understand anymore that we should expect our leaders to actually balance the checkbook. After all, facts cannot and will not be allowed to get in the way of the narrative and that narrative is the destruction of the American economy in favor of a hard left Socialist government dependent society. One only has to listen to the blabbering nabobs such as Nancy and Comrade Obama who have the nerve to say extending unemployment benefits is one of the great job creators! Good God. Can these people have their heads any further up their asses?! This isn’t a disconnect with reality. This is open political bullshit being put out there as pabulum to the masses! Tell the lie over and over until it is the truth as the public apparently would rather hear and react to bullshit instead of truth. Shame on all of us for that!”

While we’re on the subject of lies, let’s not forget the IRS cover up that isn’t a scandal or even happening according to the President and his AG. Yet when they finally decide to investigate, they bring in a hard left crony to conduct a “thorough investigation” of what they say is a non issue!

And what about Fast and Furious? Again from various sources:

“A dramatic shootout between authorities and suspected cartel gunmen at a Mexican seaside resort this month has ties to a botched U.S. gun operation. A U.S. official said Tuesday that investigators have traced at least one firearm recovered at a December 18 gunfight in Puerto Peñasco, just across from the Arizona border, to Operation Fast and Furious. That’s the disastrous operation run by agents in the Phoenix office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Agents allowed suspected gun smugglers to buy about 2,000 firearms with the goal of trying to find and prosecute high-level traffickers. They couldn’t track the firearms and most are believed to have ended up with cartels and gangsters in Mexico.”

3 years yet to this day we have not relieved satisfactory answers to this fiasco of an operation or any more insight to the death of Border Agent Terry. As in the Benghazi incident, the lies and cover up have to be the narrative and in this case we know not only that the Attorney General openly lied to Congress about it, but his buddy Herr Obama used Executive Privilege to block facts coming out, in effect also LYING!

Last but not least, we have not only the President changing the rules of health care on the fly so as to protect this illegal takeover and intrusion into our lives, but even more than in the other cases, the lies keep coming and the media as well as the loonies on the left not only defend it, but openly admit that “yes, there were lies, but they were for the good of the people” And the morons in the media, following their leader right off the edge of the cliff, not only refuse to report the lies as such, but defend them as being acceptable!
Can someone please tell me what the hell is going on here? Have the morals of this society been compromised to the point that a mind dead electorate with their hands out and their heads up their asses in fact do believe that lies are acceptable as a way to an end when it comes to policy? As the progressive leftist agenda has marched forward over the last forty years or so, are we really at the point where the amoral society they preach is acceptable?

In my world, a lie is a lie and when any politician or person is caught in a lie, they must pay the consequences. So why is it that the lies are now OK and We The People are the ones paying the consequences instead. As I have said many times, much of this is our fault as we have allowed this to fester and keep re-electing the very treasonous bastards that are hell bent on the destruction of our way of life.
Hillary lied and people died! Holder lied and people died. Comrade Obama lied and people died! Comrade Obama keeps lying s we rush off the fiscal cliff. Comrade Obama keeps lying as people lose hope for jobs and so forth! Hell, he claims brining in all of the illegals will “create new jobs”! Talk about having one’s head up his ass! Yet, what the hell, a lie is a lie and all lies are good apparently when it comes to politics, but especially when a tin horn wanna be dictator firmly believes that telling the lie over and over until it becomes the truth and rewriting history has become the norm George Orwell predicted it, Hitler through Goebles and so many others over the years in have tried to perfect it. LIE! It’s the way to go!

I’m not perfect for sure, but I know one thing for sure. Our elected leaders are supposed to be accountable to the people! Yet, far too many on both sides of the aisle are willing to not only forget their sworn duties, but in fact join in the lies and cover ups so as to keep their power. Those of us who speak out as to the lies are vilified and harassed. Those of us who cite our countries founding ideals are trashed by the likes of Senator Schumer (please note his Anti-Tea Party speech the other day). And let’s not forget the Rove’s of the world, those who feel what I feel are true conservatives have got to be defeated so the status quo can be upheld! Good Grief!

If we in fact are supposed to accept the premise that our President is justified in openly lying the electorate, if we in fact accept that as the new morals of this country, then we are in fact doomed! Everything else aside, morals define us! I hope I am not an immoral man. I try my best not to be. But to have to stand by while this immoral bastard in the White House and the rest of the scum following him undermines not only the foundation of our country, but the moral foundation as well is far too much for me top stomach! The future for my children and grand children in many ways is dependent on the American people getting off their asses and reasserting their moral authority not only over their elected officials, but over their lives as well.
 A good start would be to go after every one of these lying bastards and get them and their idea of government out of our hair. Go after them in any way possible and as so many have in fact been caught in open lies, prosecute them if possible. We need to take back our government and at least some semblance of a moral high ground now! Time is running out!
