When I was a child we used to play a game called Truth or Consequences. Tell the truth, or the consequence would be some type of embarrassing antic performed in front of others. It was hilarious to watch some of the stunts pulled by people due to their dishonesty.
We all teach our children to tell the truth, no matter what, or the consequence for their dishonesty will be far worse than the original offense. Yes, as children we’ve most likely lie at some point in our lives, and we’ve probably gotten away with it; but when caught, we were humiliated, ashamed, and embarrassed. Through this, we learned that our parents were, in fact, right–that telling the truth is the best course of action and alleviates future complications.
Obama, on the other hand, has been caught in numerous lies and he doesn’t ever seem phased in the least about it. Joseph Goebbels is reported to have said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it…”
In fact the rest of the comment is quite astounding, especially knowing what we know now about Goebbels and Hitler’s philosophy:
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.
Much of the media has covered up the lies of Obama and hails him as their poster child for the messiah. The question for me is why does Obama lie? People lie to cover up and/or distort the truth. Given the rumors that Obama paid exorbitant amounts of money to cover up his college records smells quite fishy to the vast majority of intelligent Americans. Some may say it’s not much of an issue, or dismiss the concerns surrounding his birth certificate – but it is important and it does matter! Why would anyone strive so copiously to cover up personal information that should be public knowledge to the American people, given the position as President of the United States?
Regarding policy, Obama said he would be “reducing the influence of special interests by writing new ethics rules that prevent lobbyists from coming to work in government or sitting on its advisory boards.” Amazingly this came from the Whitehouse website page on open government. Obama has, in reality, 40 plus lobbyists in high ranking positions in the administration. 40 paid lobbyists is quite a substantial number.
And transparency, unlike any of his predecessors, is what Obama promised. Even to non-Obama supporters, this sounded promising. Yet he has defended unconstitutional, warrantless wiretapping of Americans started by G.W. Bush. Even the ACLU criticized Obama, with ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero expressing criticism of Obama giving the United States government the power to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without charges and without a trial. Again, Bush initiated this, but Obama was supposed to be transparent and he signed an initiative to continue this act.
Halliburton was awarded a contract without any other bidders involved – and the infamous healthcare website was chosen via a no-bid contract. Hmm, the connection is a Toni Townie-Whitley – a college friend of Michelle Obama. Well, it’s not that other companies didn’t put in bids but CGI Federal is the only company considered by the government. Just as a side note, the website cost $678 million dollars – $678 million American workers tax money! Wow, bet that would have furnished considerable doctor visits for many folks.
AIG executives were given a bonus via a stimulus bill that Obama signed. He feigned shock and outraged upon “discovery” of the bonuses. Oddly enough before he became president, Obama informed us that, “when I’m president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely.” Guess we should add forgetfulness to his health issues.
Fast and Furious, in which the administration sent thousands of weapons over the border providing access to criminals. Mexican authorities were unaware the American government had forced gun storeowners to sell semi-automatic to known criminals. These criminals in Arizona were interconnected with Mexican drug cartels. Obama had the audacity to blame former President Bush for initiating Fast & Furious, when the facts prove otherwise. It was started October 2009.
Obama has blatantly ignored the United States Constitution by appointing the czars without approval from the U.S senate. This is before he was president: While Obama was a state Senator in Illinois, he used tax dollars to build 504 units of slum housing, which had mice and backed up sewage. Federal inspectors graded the condition of the housing so bad that the buildings faced demolition. Mind boggling, to say the least.
Voter intimidation at its finest – the New Black Panther Party intimidated voters at the 2008 voter polls. This behavior was recorded and videotaped. The Bush administration filed charges for voter intimidation but the Obama administration dismissed the charges.
These are just a sampling of the lies told by Obama and his gang. Of course, there is the NSA scandal and the healthcare plan still on hold until we, the people, know the truth.
The web has vast amounts of information pertaining to his lies and some have video recordings of the actual lie as it happens. Any one of these lies would be sufficient to have charges filed against an individual, loss of a job in the private sector, so why not Obama?
