John Kerry’s Bright Shining Lie
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/5/2013 6:17:40 AM

There is a God. Or, put another way, what goes round…comes round. The suddenly furious debate over Syria has two very blunt problems. Lying. And telling the hard truth. The latter also known as Iran. Let’s deal first with what can only be called John Kerry’s problems with what might be called a “Bright Shining Lie.” “Bush Lied” was a lie. No matter. The anti-war left sold this leftist lie like corn flakes…and they had lots of help. And one of the people who recklessly helped sell the notion that “Bush Lied” was his 2004 Democratic opponent — John Kerry. And another? Barack Obama.

Lying and a libtard go together like peanut butter and jelly. Lurch can´t help himself. It´s ingrained in his DNA.

This is a farce, and a deadly one. Obama gambled that if he leaked his attack plans to the media for a week or so it would scare off Assad. He was wrong. They know what he is. Assad heeded the warning by moving their military assets into civilian neighborhoods knowing that Obama would not dare attack there. This has now boiled down to a political butt covering chess game where the highest stakes are the midterm elections and control of the Senate. There is nothing else to be gained and much to lose.

Fanatics of all causes have a different definition of truth than the rest of us.

For most people, the truth is what is actually the case.

For the fanatic, the truth is whatever fits, strengthens and advances the cause of the fanatic, be it Islam, Communism, National Socialism or radical Leftism.

The cause itself is actually secondary to this process of alternative truth formation.

The real dynamic is the pathological commitment of the fanatic to whatever has captured his enthusiasm.

Same manure, different flies.

The plague reservoirs for radical Leftist fanaticism are the universities of America and the West. Unless something is done to regain control of the educational system, the republic cannot possibly survive.

It would be simple, cheap and effective to install webcams in selected classrooms so that the American public -which is paying for every cent of what goes on and which has a vested interest in what its children are being exposed to- could easily know what is actually going on. The cameras would capture only the instructors and what they are telling the students. Any American could click on a web portal and see and hear for themselves. Smartphone recordings by conservative students are a definite start - but they cannot do the job by themselves.

There will be lies and more lies. The media will never report The Bright Shining Lie because doing that would be professional suicide. So, everyone on the right (40% of country) knows what the truth is and the other 60% believe or are told what is not true. Amazing cover up by the MSM to keep their man from being seen as incompetent. But we know the truth.

This is a superb piece of REAL journalism. It should be echoed on 60 minutes, Frontline, the alphabets and NPR. But, naturally, it will not even be tangentially acknowledged by the running dogs of the Ministry of Truth. Wouldn´t serve the interests of the 12th Goofti.

Let´s also keep in perspective that the WMD question in Iraq was one of degree;the use of chemical weapons was well established.

Let´s also not forget that the accusations of Bush lying were part of a campaign to discredit him and his administration from day 1 starting with the stolen election garbage. Then there´s the going it alone when Bush had congressional authority and albeit a small international coalition but not alone. Tell your going it alone story to the mothers of fallen Brits. The groundwork has been well laid to condition us to the white noise of accusations of election fraud, abuse of presidential power, outright lying about foreign threats. You want to know what the statist / totalitarians are up to? Just watch what charges they levy at anyone who is not among them who is in power or a threat to get in power.

Not to imply that I believe Republicans have been responsible custodians of the Republic but I believe true evil is hiding among the bad actors appearing simply to be just among the bad actors. I also believe good actors get so soiled in the process that they become easy to taint and difficult to distinguish.

Never believe a liar. It is second nature for them to lie. Even when the truth will do, they will lie or embellish. Obama is brazen in his willingness to lie when he knows the video that contains the lie can be replayed. Progressives don´t understand the concept of right and wrong. Therefore, there is no such thing as a lie. Truth is what they say it is. Never before have so many progressives been in such positions of power as they are today. They are at the top of their fields in the news media, politics, academia, and entertainment. The end justifies the means is their mantra.

The chemical weapons in Syria came from Iraq. They were part of the WMD that President Bush was going after in Iraq. Need we ask why this isn´t being reported or discussed?

One lesson from all this: look at Lurch under fire. Thank God he was never elected president.

The ´Bush lied´ meme is one of the great indicators of the evil of the left and their LSM enablers. If SH didn´t have WMD, what was he using to kill the Kurds--camel methane? The story should be that the reports of trucks taking WMD into Syria are probably now being confirmed by Syria´s use of them.

"- the ones smuggled out of Iraq before Mr. Bush attacked there"

While he built a coalition of many countries, got a UN resolution, and finally got the Democrat-led Congress to pass a resolution supporting military action. The contrast to the the sham playing out before our eyes today could not be more obvious. Any thinking person has to see the hypocrisy today and remember the faux "anti-war" outrage of only a few years ago.

I must admit it is fun to see Jaques "Stoneface" Kerry reprising the role of General Buck Turgidson.

The Arabs along with Russia have set the trap and are waiting for the United States and Obama to step in it.
My plan would be to go ahead and cut the head off the snake, bomb Iran. Do it with the help of Israel. That would ruin their Arab Spring.

This episode of the chickens coming home to roost reminds me of a now politically incorrect story I heard as a child. It was about the Whitefoot Indians, who never told a lie, and the Blackfoot Indians, who never told the truth. An unidentified Indian was asked which tribe he belonged to. His reply was: "Why, I´m a Whitefoot, of course!"

While the contrast is not quite as stark as in the story, we know who are more like the Whitefoots and who are more like the Blackfoots. There should be no surprise here.

Kerry ripped his britches with me way back when he trashed our military to make a splash and a name for himself. These military people are the ones putting themselves at risk every day to protect his sorry rear-end, but he´s far too important to worry about that.

These far-left people are so far removed from what is good and decent and special about America and Americans. Unbelievable things have been spoken by these mean, vicious and vindictive people. Kerry is one of them - as is Obama - such arrogant phonies!

Excellent, comprehensive article by Mr. Jeffrey Lord. How refreshing it is to be able to read an article with a concurring sigh of relief because of its unmitigated and brave truth.

Mr. Lord´s paraphrasing of John Kerry´s 1971 statement is superb:

"…In our opinion, and from our experience, there is nothing in Syria, nothing which could happen that realistically threatens the United States of America. And to attempt to justify the loss of one American life anywhere else in the Middle East after Afghanistan and Iraq by linking such loss to the preservation of American or international or congressional credibility, which those Syrian misfits would supposedly damage, is to us the height of criminal hypocrisy, and it is that kind of hypocrisy which we feel has torn this country apart…."

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

For Obamacare, What Counts As Success?

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk.

U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
