Years ago while I was still the Police Chief, I made a terrible mistake. I told a citizen and fellow city staffer that realistically, it is nearly impossible for police officers driving cars at night to catch people in the act of vandalizing our city or her home. In fact, in my quarter century- I could only think of one kid we had ever caught in the act of vandalizing anything. (with the exception of the unintentional damage that skateboarders inflict)
She was upset because her house got toilet papered. After meeting her, I understood why the vandals did it. I only wished they had called me so that I could have helped. At any rate...
She got this screwed up look on her face and shortly thereafter, fled my office. Years later she told me that I should have lied to her. She disliked my answer and added that she disliked me. By the way, she is a flaming liberal and it was one of the first times I made the connection between the liberal thought process and bona fide mental illness.
Liberals love to lie. In fact, they have no means of imposing their agenda without lying. It is simply not possible. Proof of that was the great lie of 2013.
Q. If you tell an un-refuted and false narrative over and over again, does it eventually become true?
The great lie told by the Obama administration for 2013 was that the deficit fell to 650-680 billion for the fiscal year. I must have seen this number heralded 100 times at Huffington Post. However, just recently, the Government Accounting Office has said that the actual deficit was officially another trillion. The government spent 3.8 trillion on revenues of 2.8 trillion. The real deficit was reported by Dave Kranzler (The Golden Truth Blog) months ago.
So who are you going to believe? The President or a blogger in Colorado? From Zerohedge:
But that’s not the case for the US government.
Despite the Obama administration touting a budget deficit
of “only” $680 billion in 2013, the GAO’s more accurate accounting shows
a total government cost of $3.8 trillion on total revenue of $2.8
In other words– the administration wasn’t exactly honest
with the American people– the deficit was more like $1 trillion, not
$680 billion. But it gets worse.
Here's the link to the GAO's report. Despite all of the doom and gloom, sequestration was only going to slow the budget down 109 billion or less than 4%. http://gaonet.gov/assets/670/661444.pdf
The Federal Reserve Bank is the greatest lie of all. It is so very simple.
The Federal Reserve Bank was created so that politicians or government, could borrow as much money as they needed without EVER asking the citizens permission. Think about it. Without a Federal Reserve Bank willing to finance every ridiculous war or project, politicians have no means of funding all of their wealth redistribution efforts unless citizens approved more taxes and larger budgets. Congress would actually be forced to ask the citizens for more tax money every year when they budgeted expenses. Sooner or later, citizens would not fund those ridiculous expenses. They would say no and the politicians would soon get voted out of office. The Federal Reserve Bank is how the politicians can exercise complete dominion over our money. Unlimited borrowing with nothing as collateral except the ability to tax it's citizens. It's how they keep their jobs forever. It is the proverbial blank check.
CONGRESS LOVES THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK
Now bear with me- because the real important part of this piece isn't that Congress found a way to outflank it's citizens, which they did...but that they rendered the American voter absolutely powerless and useless in the process.
Politicians, with the help of bankers, found a way to wrestle all control of our government away from citizen stewardship. Government would no longer be constrained once politicians had the power to borrow unlimited funds without asking permission.
It was quite simply, the slickest trick ever pulled on the American public. To this day- the sheeple still don't know they've been had. And those few who knew back in 1913- well they are all dead and forgotten.
All of this brings us to present day America.
People have grown so spiritually sick- that they would rather be lied to than told the truth. The truth it seems- has become so painful and so inconvenient to the liberal majority that they simply cannot accept it.
Or in a superficial America that has to be constantly entertained- people simply don't care about the truth. It takes reading comprehension and critical thinking skills to determine the truth. Americans don't have time for that. They don't understand the incremental loss of their freedoms and their money. They just like all the free stuff and they could care less who pays for all of that- or who goes bankrupt in the process.
They like the lies better.
