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.

CNN reporter Jeanne Moos sparked outrage in New Zealand and Australia for her coverage of the visit of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge to New Zealand, for mocking the dress and customs of the Maori people who greeted the royals. It is almost inconceivable that a CNN reporter would mock the traditions of Native Americans, blacks, or other domestic minorities (and that editors would air such a report), but take them outside of their zone of PC awareness, and the inherent attitudes disguised at home come shining through.

It’s going to be an unsettling day for the Ruling Class in Washington, DC. One of the little tricks that keeps the Beltway media-special interest alliance prosperously spinning along has been exposed to the light of day by Washington Post blogger Eric Wemple. In a long piece devoted to Politico’s Mike Allen, Wemple chronicles the confluence of advertising and journalism via what a practice called “native advertising,” inserting material that looks like it could be an ordinary item written by a journalist, but which actually is paid advertising.

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

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas).

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
