A Phalanx of Lies
National Review Online, by Mark Steyn

Original Article

Posted By:placergolddigger, 11/1/2013 9:03:18 PM

CNN has been pondering what they call “a particularly tough few days at the White House.” “Four out of five Americans have little or no trust in their government to do anything right,” says chief political analyst Gloria Borger. “And now Obama probably feels the same way.” Our hearts go out to him, poor wee disillusioned thing. We are assured by the headline writers that the president was “unaware” of Obamacare´s website defects, and the National Security Agency spying, and the IRS targeting of his political enemies, and the Justice Department bugging the Associated Press, and pretty

As the worm turns.

In the meantime, Americans are losing income, losing insurance, and some dying while he muses about who to blame.

Last sentence says it all: Obamacare is not a left–right issue; it’s a fraud issue.

And that chimp in the Spite House should be in jail, and not just for MengeleCare.

Is lying Obama´s "native" language?

"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."

At all levels of the administration there is a plethora of Pathological Liars.

One person lies and those around them along with the MSM swear to their veracity or give credibility to the lies by their resounding silence.

They enlarge the proverbial "terrible" web by telling more falsehoods to support the initial lies.

One truth revealed will cut
an "anchor strand" and will weaken more will fail and a chain reaction will cause more failures because the remaining anchors can no longer support the weight of the web of lies.

FTA: "The Canadian and British health systems get by on the principle that, as bad as they are, for enough people they’re good enough, and you don’t have to think about it."

Indeed. We may have beeched about it, but, all things considered, we had, yes "had," the best healthcare in the world. People have for decades flocked to our system, warts and all, from all over the world.

Obamacare, unlike the British and Canadian systems, for 90% of Americans will never, ever, be good enough.

For them, all Obamacare has to do is work. That is why the last month has been so damaging to Big Government’s brand: ...Obamacare is a bust.

You underestimate the stupidity of most Americans nowadays Mark. Education, entertainment, news media, and of course the government will blame it all on sequestors, comets, wild fires, the Tea Party, the shutdown, Ted Cruz, et al and most voters will believe it. So the afterburning to the Jarret-Alinsky Xanadu (fueled by those courageous Depends wearing Republicans) will continue unabated.

Obamacare is not a left–right issue; it’s a fraud issue.

Let me remind you Mark that hate filled, racist, Tea Party, right wing Christian extremist terrorist comments like that are actually illegal under Obamacare.

Great article,as usual. Mr. Steyn never disappoints. How anyone, CNN leading the charge, can have empathy for the Liar in Chief is beyond me. He constructed this whole mess. He willfully lied to the American people and has done so on occasions other than Obamacare. The man is a liar. A cold hearted liar who believes he has an obligation to lie if need be to push forward or protect his agenda. He has no regrets and will do it again and again. He is laser focused on the end and will use any means possible so lying does not phase him. It is the most frequently used tool in his communist toolbox.

I wonder how Supreme Court Justice John Roberts feels now that he knows that his awful, misguided decision to approve of ObamaCare was based on nothing less than malfeasance by the Obama Administration?

Anyone - but especially the supremes who voted for upholding Obamacare - have been conned by a liar who has perpetrated fraud in the extreme upon every citizen in America.

Mister Chief Justice, what are you going to do about this travesty?

A crime has occurred in your courtroom.

We have the disturbingly acid accuracy of Mark Steyn !
He is a one man RIOT of fun and truth. Forget Mark running for the senate. Looks like only one guy out of 550 has maintained his real toughness and scholarly individuality, Ted Cruz. Mark is perfect right where he is with support of National Review and Lucianne. Mark will make a perfect advisor when Ted runs for President, when there is little intelligent help from Ted´s elected peer friends. Mark has strength and bite in his every word. We are fortunate to have the voice of individualist, Mark Steyn. Mark´s support comes from having a growing team of other, live wire, super intelligent, accomplished tough truth tellers like Mark Levin, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Pat Condell, John Stossell, michell

Barry Barry, quite contrary, really ought to go.
He overstayed his welcome nearly five whole years ago.

Having been treated like a coddled, precious, delicate hothouse flower all his life, always getting his way is the only thing he’s become accustomed to. Want this? Get this! Want that? Get that! Barry, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” is more than just a song title. It’s a truism. Get it? It’s the way it is.

I’m absolutely positive that many of my fellow American citizens, whom you obviously like to think of as your subjects, have just one more thing they would dearly love for you to get.

Michelle Malkin, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, and of course tough guys Rush and Glenn, and be sure to look into Drinking with Bob.com, for a verbal explosion or two and, for sure, James D Manning, the brilliant, forceful, on the money, only preacher I ever really liked.

We are also most fortunate to have an army of mild mannered fighters for absolute truth, Dennis Prager, Tom Sowell, Walter Williams, Michael Medved , Dr Ben Carson, Charles Krauthamer, Larry Elder, George Will.

Above, Two good groups, all bringing truth to a massively lying mainstream media, below ........That happens to be filled with serial liars for big bucks like Sawyer, Pelley, Williams, Walters, Couric, Letterman .......

Huge error, overlooking two of America´s most free world challenging tellers of truth: Robert Spencer, renowned author and publisher of the heroic daily JIHAD WATCH, and in New York, freedom fighter, Pamela Geller, and her daily, ATLAS SHRUGS. Both of these wonderful genius level internet and widely published heroes are observers of worldwide Islamic supremacism. The immediate cancer of this worldwide ideology/religion of growing violence is actively being overlooked by nearly every single soul in the commie driven mainstream media, as well as our contrarian Fox News and many of the good guys. Outspoken Michelle Bachmann, one person questioning the dangers of Islamists in our own government high places, is being excoriated and ostracized by her own people. Get in the habit of reading JIHAD WATCH and ATLAS SHRUGGED.
You´ll be amazed at what´s actually going on, and the great work they are initiating to protect our freedom.f

"America would benefit from an opposition party that offered a serious de-futzing of the nation: a platform on the scale of Mrs. Thatcher’s privatization program in 1979 or Sir Roger Douglas’s in New Zealand in the Eighties that offered to make ordinary life comprehensible to non-wonks once more".
THERE you have it!!
The status quo don´t cut it, so cut the tus quo.
The Democrats suk bigtime...but the establishment GOP ain´t far behind them. Cruz & Co. would do the country a favor by telling those old ferts running the GOP that, once the 2014 elections are over, it´s time to sever the relationship for good.

Wonderful article by Mr. Steyn - every word in every sentence is pin-point perfect, as usual.

Out of so much both serious and chuckle-inducing perfection, this one little group of sentences spoke stunningly of the President’s hazy perception of his position:

"But, as he put it, ‘nobody’s madder than me’ at this shadowy rogue entity called the ‘Government of the United States’ that’s running around pulling all this stuff. And, once he finds out who’s running this Government of the United States rogue entity, he’s gonna come down as hard on him as he did on that videomaker in California; he’s gonna send round the National Park Service SWAT team to teach that punk a lesson he won’t forget.

"Gloria Borger and CNN seem inclined to swallow the line that the president of the United States is not aware that he is president of the United States."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
