Well, we hit the trifecta, today. For those of us paying attention, we already knew all of this stuff was/is a lie, but, it is once again, confirmed.
Well more than a trifecta, a quad? Who knows how many lies leftards have told in recent days, only to have it easily demonstrated that they’re knowingly and willfully lying?
Well, the order is in no particular order, but, let’s start top left and go clockwise ……
Our current leftarded SoS seems to have been lying about his role in organizing the Senate’s first climate change hearing …. mostly because it wasn’t the first hearing the senate had about our climate, but, also, because he wasn’t really there. The one Kerry lies about is the one where James Hansen and Tim Wirth had the windows opened on a hot summer day to babble about global warming. Funny that, right?
Secretary of State John Kerry is taking heat for exaggerating his role as a senator in organizing the chamber’s first climate-change hearings.
Questions about Kerry’s repeated assertions that he helped organize and participated in the Senate hearings roughly 27 years ago resurfaced after a March 12 speech before the Atlantic Council, in Washington, D.C.
“Climate change is an issue that is personal to me, and it has been since the 1980s, when we were organizing the very first climate hearings in the Senate,” Kerry told the audience. “Al Gore, Tim Wirth and a group of us organized the first hearings in the Senate on this, 1988. We heard Jim Hansen sit in front of us and tell us it’s happening now, 1988.”
The Washington Post fact-checker concluded that Kerry at least exaggerated about his involvement and — comparing his statements to recent tall tales by anchor Brian Williams — gave him four “Pinocchios.” ……
You can read more about this lying scumbag at the link. Or investigate how he got certain medals from the military, or anything else he’s ever said ………
Then, there’s another habitual liar, our former SoS, and wannbe POTUS, Hillary.
Yes, it’s shocking, but, when Hillary had her press conference about her emails, she lied about everything.
Are you dead-end Hillary Clinton supporters a bit disturbed that everything she said in her email scandal press conference was a lie?
Granted, nobody with two sparking neurons to think with believed her absurd claim that she created her insecure, illegal private mail server to save herself the inconvenience of carrying two cell phones. The problem is that loyal service to Her Imperious Majesty requires Democrats to pretend to believe it, and that’s impossible now.
It was always very difficult to accept the mandated pretense, because in previous remarks and in her book, Clinton talked about carrying multiple devices. She’s rhapsodized about her love of Apple products, but she’s been photographed ostentatiously waving a Blackberry around.
However, the loyal Democrat drone could pretend not to be aware of that evidence, or claim to believe Clinton was gently fibbing when she talked about lugging multiple Apple devices around, in an effort to curry favor with left-leaning Apple execs and their left-leaning customers.
That’s all over now, because the Associated Press has obtained documents conclusive proving that “Hillary Rodham Clinton emailed her staff on an iPad as well as a BlackBerry while secretary of state, despite her explanation she exclusively used a personal email address on a homebrew server so that she could carry a single device.”
Furthermore, for those of you worried about Clinton’s corruption jeopardizing national security, the AP found an instance of the SecState replying to an illegally concealed work-related email as if it were one of those personal emails she claims she didn’t have to pass along to the government and public. Gee, you don’t suppose she might have made a few similar mistakes when deciding which emails were “personal” and could be safely deleted, do you?
The State Department released a total of four emails between Clinton and her top advisers as part of a Freedom of Information Act request filed in 2013 by the AP, which sought Clinton’s correspondence with senior advisers over a four-year period relating to drone strikes overseas and U.S. surveillance programs.
While limited, the emails offer one of the first looks into Clinton’s correspondence while secretary of state. The messages came from and were sent to her private email address, hosted on a server at her property in Chappaqua, New York, as opposed to a government-run email account.
They show that Clinton, on at least one occasion, accidentally mingled personal and work matters. In reply to a message sent in September 2011 by adviser Huma Abedin to Clinton’s personal email account, which contained an AP story about a drone strike in Pakistan, Clinton mistakenly replied with questions that appear to be about decorations.
“I like the idea of these,” she wrote to Abedin. “How high are they? What would the bench be made of? And I’d prefer two shelves or attractive boxes/baskets/ conmtainers (sic) on one. What do you think?”
Abedin replied, “Did u mean to send to me?” To which Clinton wrote, “No-sorry! Also, pls let me know if you got a reply from my ipad. I’m not sure replies go thru.”
But, then, what would a day of exposed lies be Harry Reid chiming in about his imaginary friend?
In a wide-ranging interview with CNN’s Dana Bash about his pending retirement from Congress that aired on CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid sounded off on the 2016 presidential race, some of his Republican Senate colleagues in that race, his likely successor as the Democratic leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and his thoughts on President Barack Obama.
Also during that interview, Bash asked Reid about his 2012 Senate floor remarks attacking the Koch Brothers and then-Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. Reid had claimed Romney had not paid federal taxes, which was based on some dubious sources, to which Bash said some had called “McCarthy-ite.”
Reid said he had no regrets for making those remarks.
“They can call it whatever they want,” Reid replied. “Romney didn’t win, did he?”
Ahh, nice! Nothing better than the Dim Senate leader attesting that the end justifies the means in his mind!
And, lastly, we have the leftards go-to guy with even an award (awarded by leftards) for economics! He’s lying about Zerocare. His is a nice twist, essentially saying the real life horror stories about Zerocare are lies, except, they’re shown, over and over again, to be true! And, then, he misleads readers about the Zerocare numbers.
Here we go again. One of the High Priests of the so-called “reality-based community” has for the umpteenth time pronounced Obamacare a great success, asserting that people who believe otherwise (like, for example, the majorityof the American people) have either been deceived, or are liars. Paint-by-numbers acerbic Leftist,reactionary smear artist, and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman calls Obamacare horror stories “imaginary disasters,” made up from whole cloth to scare people and undermine a law that’s working and helping people. We’ve spent quite a lot of time refuting variants of this argument in recent years, producing detailed responses to President Obama, Harry Reid, and two different bloggers at Vox. Here’s Krugman — in a column declaring Obamacare a success and its opponents discredited, no less — bemoaning our “post-truth politics:”
In short, when it comes to the facts, the attack on health reform has come up empty-handed…And the favorable experiences of the roughly 16 million Americans who have gained insurance so far have had little effect on public perceptions. Partly that’s because the Affordable Care Act, by design, has had almost no effect on those who already had good health insurance: Before the act, a large majority of Americans were already covered by their employers, by Medicare or by Medicaid, and they have seen no change in their status. At a deeper level, however, what we’re looking at here is the impact of post-truth politics. We live in an era in which politicians and the supposed experts who serve them never feel obliged to acknowledge uncomfortable facts, in which no argument is ever dropped, no matter how overwhelming the evidence that it’s wrong. And the result is that imaginary disasters can overshadow real successes. Obamacare isn’t perfect, but it has dramatically improved the lives of millions. Someone should tell the voters.
Actually, when it comes to the facts, opponents’ attacks on the law have been overwhelmingly vindicated. Obamacare has failed to deliver on nearly every major promise upon which it was sold. Remember, one of the law’s chief architects has conceded that its PR team lied about taxing benefits, lied about cost control, and intentionally exploited legislative opacity, which he bragged would help bamboozle “stupid” voters. So the statement that critics have “come up empty-handed” could only come from a cloistered, closed-minded ideologue who admits to shielding himself from uncomfortable data and opposing viewpoints. Krugman also fails to mention that many of the millions who’ve “gained insurance” under the law previously had coverage and were forced to sign up through the exchanges when their suddenly-noncompliant plans were unceremoniously canceled. He writes that the law had “almost no effect” on people who were already happily insured. That’s only true if you willfully ignore the millions of consumers who’ve received cancellation notices as a direct result of the law, and the millions more who will experience the same upheaval in the years to come. Finally, poll after poll confirms that Americans who’ve been directly harmed by Obamacare substantially outnumber those whose lives have been “dramatically improved.” These are people’s actual experiences, and no amount of smug, tendentious bloviating can alter people’s everyday realities. These disasters are not “imaginary” — as Krugman might be aware if he deigned to read his own newspaper from time to time. Here’s the Times last month:
Ms. Pineman, who is self-employed, ……
Would Mr. Krugman care to repeat his “imaginary” rubbish to the faces of this cancer patient, this young mother, this erstwhile Obamacare poster child, or these workers in Pennsylvania? ….. (vid at the link which starts with “he’s lying about Zerocare.)
Now, Krugman knows full well these are real stories with real people lives being destroyed by Zerocare. But, he doesn’t care. And, that’s the point. Leftards pretend to actually care about people or things. This is why people give them a pass when it comes to honesty. They believe the leftards are actually trying to work for people, ….. people other than themselves, so they tend to excuse and overlook this serial dishonesty. Mind you, this collection was from about 1/2 reading just today! This is news only for today, and most of it will assuredly be buried tomorrow, Hillary’s emails notwithstanding.
But, look at the lies being told. One is nonsensical. Why would anyone brag about leading the charge in what many, if not most people see as either a none-issue, or the greatest scam ever perpetrate on the world? That’s what I like about my posts on climate. They’re simple, but, nearly all are irrefutable. (Once in a great while I’ll venture towards theory and whatnot). I simply post the data and plot it. Fires, hurricanes, snow, ice, droughts, tornadoes, polar bear populations ….. whatever is a common meme with the climate leftards which have quantifiable data. All of the data from the aforementioned topics entirely refute the dire prognostications of the leftards. But, they don’t care, and they don’t care to look at the data. Climate isn’t the end, it’s the means.
Hillary gave a press conference in which she intentionally lied to people, and everyone knew it was a lie. But, she was compelled to lie anyway, so the leftarded supports could pretend to believe the lie. Sure, everyone knew it was a lie, but, leftards like to pretend. Thus, the press conference.
Then there’s Harry’s “no regrets” about the lie he told about Mitt Romney. Well, he didn’t win, did he? So for Harry, and the rest of the leftards, the lie was justified.
And, then lastly we come to another serial leftarded liar, Krugman. The very paper he was writing in had already demonstrated and confirmed several Zerocare horror stories. The notion that Krugman could possibly be unaware of such stories isn’t believable. The notion that he’d take numbers without drilling down to understand the numbers belies his stature and education as an economist. He’s simply lying to people because of his advocacy.
Mind you, these lies are not told to benefit the common man and/or woman, it is to ensure control of the common man and/or woman.
Again, this was just 1/2 hr reading of various news outlets in one day …….. IN ONE NEWS DAY!!!!!!!!
These people lie so much they disbelieve the truth because they’ve never heard it. Some of the lies they tell are the sweetest of lies, so much so, people really, really, really want to believe the lies. But, they’re lies, nonetheless. Nothing you hear from a leftard should be believed. And, if you find yourself already believing what a leftard is saying, you really, really, really, need to recheck your belief, it’s probably wrong.
