I’ve featured this song/video before, mostly because it’s a great song, I really dig the blues style and the guitar playing, the vocals, and well, I think it’s a great song! (The one afterwards, on the mix it pretty darn good, too!) But, today, I’ve featured it because I think this is what many if not most Americans want —– They must want it because they not only tolerate it, but, many support the people who constantly lie to us.
It’s too much for me. But, then, I’m old enough to remember when a person would be forced from office when other people spied on other people and they didn’t do anything about it after they were informed about it. —– For those too young to know, or ill-informed about it, this is what happened to president Nixon.
Now, members of the administration who did actually spy on a journalist for possible crime of journalism can aggressively attack said journalist without any repercussions for the spying.
But, it’s not just that …. The VA scandal, where our veterans are basically killed by bureaucrats and their indifference, we’re suppose to believe our administration is going to do something about it. Well, they told us they were really, really mad about and promised us they would do something about it ……… I guess that’s good enough for the American people. There doesn’t seem to be any outrage about it. Indeed, even one of the people at the heart of the scandal, instead of going to jail and being prosecuted for falsifying records, now stands a good chance at having her job reinstated because our Department of “Justice” has now decided not to enforce a law congress passed to make it easier to fire incompetent administrators. It seems ….. well,
Lynch stressed in her letter that the DOJ will “continue to defend the vast bulk” of the law, including against Helman’s other legal challenges. But she said the DOJ would not defend the provision that denied Helman an appeal after a judge upheld her removal. …..
….Helman is suing the federal government to win her old job back and as part of that argued the congressional reforms unconstitutionally denied her a step to appeal her dismissal.
It’s weird. I’ve read the US Constitution many times. I don’t recall ever seeing a job protected by legal court proceeding, much less an appeal of said court proceeding. WTF happened to when your boss tells you ‘you’re fired’ means that you’re fired? I mean, that’s how the rest of us little people live, isn’t it? Sure, I understand there are some union work places which have their own rules, but, there’s nothing in the constitution which guarantees any of this. But, that’s okay. We want to believe our administration is on this VA stuff and our DOJ pursues the laws our congress passes. Because we want to believe this, we need to be lied to. Tell me where the justice is for these veterans? Instead of putting this b*tch in jail, the “people” will try and help her get her job back. As long as we believe they’re trying, it’ll be okay.
But, that’s okay, even when we catch them at lying, they admit to lying to us, nothing happens ….. I mean, other than attacking the aforementioned journalist.
As Katie wrote earlier, the Obama State Department has admitted that it deliberately deleted a portion of video from a 2013 press briefing, at which then-spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared to confirm to Fox News correspondent James Rosen that misleading the press is sometimes a necessary element of secret diplomacy. That admission seems particularly damaging in light of recent revelations that senior White House national security aide Ben Rhodes intentionally and repeatedly manipulated the media and the public in selling the administration’s controversial nuclear deal with Iran. Obama officials appear to have inaccurately portrayed key elements of the agreement — from the circumstances under which talks began, to its terms pertaining to illegal ballistic missile tests, to the nature of its inspections regime. It seems as though somebody at the State Department realized that Psaki’s answer in late 2013 might fuel the political controversy over Rhodes’ deceitful “echo chamber” strategy, and ordered that the original tape be edited to excise the exchange. When this ex post facto bowdlerization was discovered by Fox News, State lied about it, claiming it was cause by a technical “glitch,” as opposed to an intentional act. (Anyone with knowledge of television editing recognizes a so-called “white flash” edit as anything but accidental).
I guess some people like being lied to. The State Dept seems incredibly incurious as to who ordered the editing and doesn’t seem inclined to investigate if similar editing has occurred or not. But, they’ve assured us that they’re taking steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again. Lie to me some more!!!!!! Lie to me!!!
Speaking of the State Dept and lies, Hillary attacked Trump on his incoherent foreign policy stances. It’s true, many of his statements seem to indicate he doesn’t have a firm conviction or view. It’s fair to attack them, I suppose.
In another America I used to live in, Hillary making a foreign policy speech would have got her laughed or booed off the stage. I mean, this is the person who guided our foreign policy through one dismal failure after another. She even managed to state, “ ……. well ……
“There’s nothing I take more seriously than our national security,” she averred, hoping that viewers would simply forget how she knowingly and deliberately compromised our national security with her improper and unsecure email scheme — about which she’s endlessly lied, ……
And yet, a huge portion, if not the majority of the people voting in the next presidential election will vote for her. She even managed to seemingly take credit for the Iran nuclear deal, which, as mentioned above was built on and sold to the American people by lies. Only people who like being lied to could possibly advocate putting someone like her anywhere but prison. But, that was only in the America I used to live in. Lie to me, tell me everything’s okay!
Tell me that you’re something you’re not!
“My reading of scripture tells me that that [the] Golden Rule is pretty high up there in terms of my Christian belief,” he said during a town hall in Elkhart, Indiana.
Apparently, Zero doesn’t understand what the “Golden Rule” is about.
“Do to others what you want them to do to you. This is the meaning of the law of Moses and the teaching of the prophets.”
So, apparently Zero wants people to shove their own ideologies up his a$$ regardless of his feelings or beliefs, or his safety, for that matter. Good to know …… or, maybe, just maybe, he’s lying to us about his beliefs and understanding of the Golden Rule.
But, then, this entire issue is based upon people lying to themselves, trying to convince the world that they’re something they’re not. You can believe you’re the opposite gender that you are all you wish, it doesn’t make it true. In fact, nothing will make it true. There’s nothing anyone can do to accommodate that belief to being true. It’s a mental disorder!!!! It’s called Gender dysphoria!!!!! Personally, I’d want someone to help bring me to reality rather than play into any delusions I may have. Instead, the president, and many Americans want to lie to these people with the mental disorder. Indeed, they’ll participate in the lie.
For those who may not be versed in reality, gender isn’t a social construct, it’s a biological construct. It’s science, and human anatomy and physiology. What sort of dumbass can claim to love and adhere to science but reject basic biology?
They’re lying to us, they know they’re lying to us, we know they’re lying to us, and we continue to accept the lies. And, we lie to ourselves believing it will get better.
Until we start to reject the people who habitually, consistently, and continually lie to us, it will never get better. I suppose, though, there are people who don’t want it to get better. These are the same people who would take a f’n gorilla over a child’s life. Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me. Tell me if that wasn’t your child being dragged around by a gorilla that you wouldn’t want your child safeguarded at any cost. And, in this case, the call is a simple choice, but, we like to pretend it wasn’t.
So, in light of these events and a multitude of others, I propose the above song be our new national anthem. Lie to me!!!!!!
