Where There's Smoke
The burn units in Washington, D.C. hospitals must be the busiest places in town lately, treating the blistered butts of the Democrat liars whose pants have been raging like California brush fires. Leading the way, as usual, is the Unprecedented One, Barack "Barry" Hussein Obama-Soetoro, or whatever his name is. The man truly is beyond belief in his capacity to lie. To paraphrase Admiral Farragut at the battle of Mobile Bay, "Damn the facts! Full speed ahead!"
Campaigning seems to really get him all wee-weed up. His latest is a real jaw-dropper:
"Since I've been President, federal spending has risen at its lowest pace in nearly 60 years. Think about it. Think about it. I just point out that it always goes up least under Democratic presidents. This other side, I don't know how they've been bamboozling folks into thinking they are the responsible, fiscally disciplined party? They run up these wild debts, and then when we take over, we've gotta clean it up."
"...and right now, we've got the lowest tax rates we've had since the 1950s. And, some of the Republican proposals would take it back as a percentage of GDP back to where we were back in the 1920s. You can't have a modern industrial economy like that."
A sane person would know that even wacko liberal Democrats are aware that this is utter, outrageous nonsense, not even close to reality. However, it's becoming more and more likely that we are not dealing with a sane person.
Obama-Soetoro has a well-documented history of saying one thing to one group, and then, in front of a different group on another day, saying the opposite. This, clearly, is conscious lying, done with the knowledge that the complicit Ministry of Propaganda, aka the "mainstream" media, will not point out or even discuss the contradictions if they are brought up by his critics. This sort of lying is part and parcel of B. Hussein's Saul Alinsky tactical maneuvering. He exaggerates and twists facts, and is unable to keep promises. He knows what he is saying is not true, but they are the sort of lies that are not based on hard fact, and can be denied as "misstatements," "misquotes," "misunderstandings," or -- a periennial Democrat Ministry of Propaganda favorite -- "taken out of context." The recent campaign lies are different.
These are statements that fly in the face of known, and therefore, easily checkable facts. There's no deniability here. These are facts that anyone can look up, in a library or on the web. So it seems pretty clear that Barry has come to believe his own lies.
Many people have presented pretty good arguments that The Chosen One is a psychopathic liar and a narcissist. A good case, too, has been made that his huge supporter, George Soros, is a sociopath. And it has been suggested that many of the Fat Cat corporate and Wall Street biggies who make up the bulk of his financial supporters are sociopaths, too. Add to this Michael Savage's contention -- with which I am in general agreement -- that liberals are mentally ill, and you have a potentially very dangerous situation developing.
The mentally ill, especially sociopaths and narcissists, get very aggressive when they don't get what they want. We have already seen Obama-Soetoro ramp up the use of executive orders and EPA regulators to by-pass Congress when they wouldn't do as he demanded they do. And with a Democrat-dominated Senate, full of anti-Constitutionalists and running dog RINOs, it's likely to get worse.
Now that the Senate has given its imprimatur to warrantless searches and armed FDA agents joining the multitude of unconstitutional armed federal agency police forces, the massive ammunition and weapons purchases by the likes of the Forest Service and the IRS become even more disturbing. The Senate, too, gave him the NDAA with its arrest without charges or Constitutional rights and indefinite detention of American citizens. A disaster, manufactured or otherwise, is now legally a trigger for the imposition of martial law, and a lot of folks are rightfully concerned and nervous about this. Given Obama-Soetoro's well-known association with radical, unrepentant far left terrorists like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, anti-American racists like Jeremiah Wright, his training in the philosophy of Marx and the tactics of Saul Alinsky, and his clear dislike of America, especially white, Christian America, there is no guarantee that the November elections will ever happen.
Americans truly need to understand that the lies and the liars of today are not simply politics as usual. These are dangerous people, out to turn America into a totalitarian socialist state, by whatever means necessary. And only We, the People, can stop them.
