Can We Finally Stop Pretending?
American Thinker, by Jeffrey T. Brown

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 10/30/2013 9:00:18 AM

Every day, it seems, more people who have been screaming their hatred for those who predicted all we see coming true are admitting what we have known all along. The president is incapable of telling a truth, and what conservatives have been predicting for three years about ObamaCare has been entirely correct. Indeed, we haven´t seen anything close to the worst of what is to come, since the system hasn´t even begun to function in its utmost state of disarray and confusion.(snip)So, can we finally stop pretending that the left has a positive plan for the United States? Can we

"We cannot emerge from this darkness and achieve our full potential as a nation until we stop pretending that everything we are told by the left is not a lie."

My nomination for quote of the day. Stopping the pretending means ceasing with the nonsense that the Left has "good intentions" - but pigs will fly before Republicans in office will ever admit that.

Sadly, the next big lie is already being chanted: people are only being "transitioned" to "better plans."

Racism was a term originally created by social scientists, who only used it after detailed studies involving data accumulation and evaluation. But then politicians and social activists appropriated it to manipulate the populace. Over the years political activists have redefined racism to include opposition to each new racial preference goal they were seeking.

The problem with the Obamacare is that it is being felt up close and personally by millions of Americans.

If and when the website ever starts running, people will see the next layer of lies, and that one will be even worse. They are being forced to buy the health insurance the elites have determined they need. It´s like having your car or cars taken away and then being forced to buy a new car. The problem is, you can only buy a Cadillac. You might buy a more or less expensive Cadillac, but it must be a Cadillac. And you must buy one, because if you don´t, you will be fined. It´s the Cadillac, or no car at all plus a fine.

Americans generally ignore politics and just try to get on with their lives. But this time they can´t ignore the lie that is Obamacare. And all the spin in the world isn´t going to make this disastrous law anything but a disaster.

Somewhere in Saul Alinski´s "Rules" there is the caveat that says when you lie, cheat and deceive, you shouldn´t be obvious about it. I think obama and his flying monkey circus all missed that one.

We have been on to them for years and the media is FINALLY catching up. Stock up on popcorn for the coming democrat bloodbath.

As long as the MSM lie for Obama, nothing will change.

The MSM is as much responsible for our current situation as the unethical Congressmen that have been placed in power by Party and Lobby money.

Corruption can only be eliminated by transparency and accountability.

The modern left is nothing like the old fashioned liberals who thought they could make a better world. These people only want power. They use government and shame to acquire it and keep it. Their only interest is themselves. More money, more power, more grandeur. Lying is as natural to them as belching.

47% (or certainly a higher number by now) of the people don´t care if they are lied to, as long as the government keeps promising to take care of them. People who would vote for the likes of Grayson, Frankin, Washerwoman, Rangle, Biden, Hank Johnson, et al aren´t looking for someone with integrity or intelligence - just someone promising to put something in their outstretched palm.

Well done.

Can we stop pretending that the president meant to do anything other than destroy a system he has hated since his socialist-influenced youth?

He was chosen by still-unknown benefactors, despite a ghost past, to do exactly that - to knowingly destroy the country he and his Marxist friends abhor.

Can we dispense with the unhinged rants about dog whistles and face up to the fact that conservatives have been right about this all along?

They´d rather die.

Can we finally openly discuss that the left´s own hatred and bigotry are largely to blame for where we are now, not just regarding ObamaCare?

We have known whose fault all of this wanton destruction is all along. It is hopeful that slowly, some others are finally realizing they´ve been had.

They have protected, helped and worshiped an illusion, with pure malice toward those who have loved and fought for this country, and are entirely complicit in the damage now being done to every fiber of our nation.

Right now, it is up to one of two forces to help us take back our country from the duplicitous, dishonest lies of this Administration: The Democrat Party or the American people. Impeachment processes should begin at once. Barring that longshot, the streets should fill with the "disenfranchised", which includes every American on our soil right now.

That said, God is allowing this to play out. He has already answered our prayers by revealing many of the lies. Now, our prayers for bringing America back to its Founding principles need to be redoubled. He is working...

I have and always will wholeheartedly agree with what #9 said.

Also, we have placed people in power who can vote themselves perks, money, and more power than was ever intended by the founders. It´s taken time, decades even, but it´s been happening. Now they can create laws for us that they do not have to obey. They have a sense of royal entitlement now.

I believe I have been waiting for this article to be written for 4 years or more.

I almost saw smoke rising from my hard disk as I read it.

I´d love to send the article to some Democrats I know, but I probably won´t because it would be unfair. The Democrat Party has abandoned their former grass-roots Democrats, people like my next-door neighbor who will lend a hand whenever he sees a need, for example. It is now controlled by the Far Left.

I can remember the days when people didn´t choose their friends according to their political party. I do not do so myself, but neither will I hide my political inclinations, and this puts off some Democrats. I think everyone would like to go back to the time when friends, relatives, and Presidents were people we could respect, regardless of political party.

Amen #18 These days it is a challenge just sitting at the same table as a leftist lying kommiecrat. When o dark won was elected THE FIRST TIME, I refused to spend Thanksgivng with the inlaws. A passel of asses all branded and corralled. A kommie ´friend´ made condescending remarks that I was speaking ´crazy talk´ and I promptly told her that she had received the last ever email from this email addy. And that was that. The following election the friend wrote saying in a lying kommie liberal´s words ´I´m Sorry´ but of course she actually did not apologize. That bridge is burned. Lesson learned. No kommiecrats in this life...none. Time is way too short to put up with that kettle of stinking fish.

From his very early days in office, Obama bamboozled many of us into believing his Unaffordable-Couldn’t-Care-Less Health Care Act would come up smelling like a rose. A rose, Mr. President? Apparently you’re unable to detect the difference between the irresistible fragrance of a rose and the excruciating stench of a porta potty.

Win by not allowing them to use good words AGAINST us. It´s not obamacare! It´s obamacide ! It´s not a roll out,
It´s a head on collision ! It´s not a marketplace, it´s forced to buy from the corrupt company store, it´s not private sector, it´s the real world, it´s definitely not amnesty, it´s favoring invadingq aliens who broke our laws, it´s not QE2 or monetizing, it´s printing debased money out of thin air.
Think about all the government MSM chosen, nice sounding words and phrases q that are brazenly used 24/7 to intimidate us all into brainwashed government subservience. Make a list of words that reflect the truth.

For closers, dare to use the one word none of these frightening dems, and all the FRIGHTENED RINOS,

The Democrat plan is for us to die, and die quickly.

We are being "transitioned" to a "more frugal lifestyle," a "less capitalist" way of life, a "humbler" role in politics, a greater willingness to submit to tyranny.

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that.

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.

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.
