Why Does Nation Tolerate A
Habitual Liar As President?

Investors Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/22/2014 2:10:54 PM

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The true conservatives don´t accept it, but the RINOs in the house and senate do. This joker should have been impeached years ago.

How do we get rid of him?

Evemn if the cowards running the House were to impeach him, the Senate under reid would never convict him.

BTW, speaking of harry reid, I heard fro m a good source that he takes bribes and cheats on his taxes! This is well known both in DC and Nevada.

Well, because. He is universally loved and admired. Just ask him.
And he is not done with his fundamental transformation of the United States. Much of the economy is still in private hands. Fascism requires that all instruments of production be under the control of the State. This alone will bring freedom.
That is what Mussolini taught.
And lies are okay, if done for the greater good. The greater good is One Man, One Voice, One rule, One law, One way. The Way of Islam (which means submission).
And we must all shut up and submit ourselves to the Won.
Otherwise the IRS will come for you.

Lack of ethics within the media sifters & spinners is a major contributor to some in the public simply not being informed by the media. Instead, the press covers for 0bama, just as it does for all dem pols and statist GOP pols currently. How pathetic ´journalISM´ has become these days. mmm mmm mmm

Because they get Mo´ Free Stuff. Well more than half of Americans are takers - in fact the ratio of takers to makers is about 2-to-1. When more than half of the country votes for the one who promises to get them other people´s stuff, it doesn´t matter that he´s a sociopath. After all, that´s what his supporters are.

It all starts and ends with our media. Why do they only run positive stories for him and deliberately drop the ball on negative stories about him? They know that if they don´t publish it, it´s like it never happened. What´s in it for them to lie to us? That´s what I want to know.

America has gradually turned away from God and God´s moral standards. Americans want leaders who will not make moral judgments or judge people´s vices. They want leaders who embrace moral relativism and a "live and let live" mentality. They want leaders who will tell them what they want to hear, make excuses for them when their destructive lifestyles destroy their lives and give them money they didn´t earn calling it income equality and social justice.
To get that kind of leader, you have to be willing to accept a leader who lies and is in denial, because there is truth and there are absolutes and they do judge, ridicule and blame bad people, bad practices and bad polices. There is a God and there is a Day of Reckoning. To claim there isn´t is to lie.
So people would rather have a leader that is a habitual liar than a leader who would tell them the truth, expect people to be self-reliant and be responsible and accountable for their actions.
That is why a social liberal, fiscal conservative will not fix America´s problems.
Government cannot pass enough laws to make people behave or be good, it takes something more, something inside, something only God can give us.

Many In this country have lost their moral compass. They want nothing to do with God. In fact, they actively try and push Him out of the public eye every chance they get. These people do not want men and women with a reverence for God and strong sense of right and wrong running things. They want ambiguity. They want the lines blurred between right and wrong. They want to be the arbitrators of acceptable behavior. They certainly do not want God fearing people in positions of power. When a nation tolerates and some even celebrate a liar in the highest office of the land, then we have more problems than political ones. We must get back to a clear understanding of what is right and what is wrong. Lying, cheating, stealing in the name of policitical power is wrong and is undermining the very foundational principles of this great nation. Either we rise to the challenge of demanding truth in our leaders or we will continue the slide into the moral rot that is destroying us.

Why are Obama´s lies tolerated? Because, unfortunately, most Americans tolerate and justify lying in their own lives. Remember Clinton´s lies and adultery? One of my co-workers said that a person could separate their public and private lies. How untrue! If we accept adultery in a ruler´s public life, then we are indeed accepting adultery in his private life, and vice versa.

It really is amazing that America has put up with his prevaricating this long. When I grew up, one of the worst things a kid could do was to lie - especially to mom and dad or the teacher. As long as we told the truth, the punishment wasn´t nearly as severe.

One wonders how Obama grew up - where did he get the idea that lying wouldn´t be punished? With Barry, lying is almost an art form! What a sad legacy he is leaving!

We are such a cowered nation that we tolerate, accept and champion a man that a majority knows is a habitual liar on big and important life changing issues, because to do otherwise is to be called a racist. As a nation I am afraid WE have no back bone. The monstrosity that is our education system has finally borne fruit. Generations have been taught: to reject Judeo Christian principles; that our history is racist and corrupt; that capitalism is rotten; that to judge anyone is a sin; that anything goes is the new religion; and,that down is up and up is down.

We are destroying this nation from within and it feels as if we are seemingly helpless to stop it. There was hope with the 2012 election, but when Zero won, it was over. We can try to take back our country this election, but who knows how the vast majority will vote. Too busy watching Dancing with the Stars to get involved with their fate.

Sorry for the negativity this morning.

The scarey thing is that children are now growing up in a culture where lying is almost a given. I heard someone say that, in many of our colleges, students are taught that there is no such thing as truth; there are just ideas, and ideas change.

And, of course, the Common Core curriculum teaches that it is o.k. to say that 2 + 2 = 5 because what´s important in Common Core is that the child understands the concept of computing, and whether they come up with the correct answer or not is irrelevant. It´s crazy.

That´s the reason why our nation tolerates a liar. Children and young adults are taught that there´s nothing wrong with lying.

We should not be tolerating this man´s over-reaching and undermining of our traditions and liberties. Many of us are hoping and praying someone with more influence than us will do something about it. People in public service, for the most part, know ´all hell will break loose and come down around their heads´ if any substantial action (legally) is taken to pull in the reins on Obama. And with three more years to go? God help us!

Great thread!
#13,how did massive media control happen? In the 60s, their mission changed from simple unbiased reporting of facts to becoming a voice for what they felt were under-represented minorities. With the advent of 24/7 news cycles, however, minority opinions repeated on an hourly basis take on a gravitas of their own and begin to sound like majority opinions.
So, #13, what´s in it for the media? The POWER to shape and form the political agenda of this country. It didn´t used to be that way.

Poster #15 and #26 are on the right track. This nation has been traveling down a rotten path for at least 50yrs now. I recall that back in the 60´s, the hippies and the rest of the younger generation at that time were incensed that they had to follow some rules about life that were created many years ago. And the theme running around those same young people was that "GOD was dead" or didn´t exist. So why follow the Ten Commandments? They just don´t really mean anything. I get to make up my own mind about what is good or evil or what I want to do with my life etc. As such, in today´s world, we seem to have a majority that doesn´t respect GOD or even recognize HIS existence. And words like "Thou Shalt not Bear False Witness" have no meaning to them. Yes, this country is doomed IF it cannot reclaim it´s path to GOD. Remember, even the founders said that the government they gave us was for a GOD fearing, moral people. And it would not work for any other.

Don´t forget the huge influence of Hollywood...much of which is a cesspool that hates anyone who might make them feel guilty for their "lifestyles".

Obama´s reported homosexuality, love of abortion, rewarding his rich friends while stealing from the middle class to give to the underclass, etc. etc. doesn´t threaten their little egos.

Doing the right thing, and being an overall decent person just isn´t cool - to these people.

Saul Alinsky: Lying is merely a means to an end.

"The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. To say that corrupt means corrupt the ends is to believe in the immaculate conception of ends and principles."

#52 has it right. God did not give us the "TEN Suggestions" He gave us the "TEN COMMANDMENTS". These were very much adhered to and influenced our founding documents.

Obama appears to be bulletproof due to America´s long history of racial politics that most Americans living today had nothing to do with.

As for the Republicans, a good segment of them always go along with the Democrats to get along. They don´t really care if the Republicans win the presidency as long as they get to keep their cushy jobs.

Because the blacks who voted for him are 100% racists and the whites who voted for him are racists and living in denial.
We must have a "black" president - even though his life is a complete secret.

Former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol Ronald Colburn tells National Review Online that the Obama administration has undone all of the progress made at America’s southern border since 9/11. “We’re back to a pre-9/11 situation basically, and this administration did that in the past five years,” he says. “All of the good that was done after 9/11 up to now has been reversed singlehandedly.” Colburn, who spent more than 30 years working for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says the resulting national-security risk has to do with the “clutter” of people at the border. He says all of the

JACKSON, Miss. —Representatives for Chris McDaniel´s U.S. Senate campaign said Wednesday that they continue to examine election materials, but have not yet filed an official election challenge. McDaniel lost to six-term U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran by more than 7,600 votes in the June 24 Republican runoff election. McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said enough evidence has already been found to challenge the election. He said an official challenge will be filed within the next 10 days. McDaniel did not attend Wednesday´s news conference in Jackson. "This is not a challenge right now. This is a process by which is afforded to the candidate by

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has secretly notified Congress that the military intends to transfer six low-level Guantánamo Bay detainees to Uruguay as early as next month, according to people with knowledge of the communication. All six have been approved for transfer for more than four years. Mr. Hagel’s formal determination that the transfer would be in the national security interest of the United States breaks a bureaucratic paralysis over a deal that has been waiting for his approval since March, but stalled amid the political uproar over a prisoner exchange deal that secured the release of Sgt.

TEGUCIGALPA - Top Honduran officials on Wednesday called for U.S. aid to Central America to reduce violence that has fueled a surge of child migration to the United States, with the foreign minister calling for a "mini-Marshall plan" to attack the broader underlying problems. Honduran President Juan Hernandez said Washington should help Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras fight gangs with a plan similar to U.S. anti-drug programs in Colombia and Mexico, as well as funds to lift growth in the impoverished region. "One has to recognize that our countries can´t do it alone," he said at a conference about the unaccompanied minors

Cochran finished with a 7,667-vote margin of victory, according to official results.

As reported earlier today by Kristinn Taylor… The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. The beautiful Palm Aire resort and hotel has an indoor Olympic sized pool and an outdoor pool. Free Wi-Fi and cable TV are included in the simply decorated guest rooms.

His new lawyer says Bergdahl is grateful to the president for making the prisoner swap that brought him home. U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has a new lawyer to defend him as the Army investigates the circumstances surrounding his kidnapping by the Taliban in 2009. And the former hostage wants President Obama to know that he is grateful the U.S. government traded five Taliban commanders in exchange for his release in May. “Sergeant Bergdahl is deeply grateful to President Obama for saving his life,” Bergdahl’s

If the Palestinians are merely engaged in a nationalist struggle for self-determination, then why are they inciting genocide of Jewry? In the midst of Operation Protective Edge, Hamas released a music video in Hebrew calling for the Palestinians to bomb Israel and kill all Israelis. “Raze it [Israel] to the ground, exterminate the cockroaches’ nest, and banish all the Zionists,” the lyrics read. Some human rights activists and lawyers may get a sense of déjà vu upon reading these words. Back in 1994, there were several radio broadcasts calling for the extermination of human cockroaches. They were in Rwanda. When the Hutus began their

TOPEKA, Kan. — Democratic challenger Paul Davis sought Tuesday to give his campaign for Kansas governor a bipartisan boost by announcing endorsements from more than 100 moderate Republicans who´ve split with conservative GOP Gov. Sam Brownback over education and tax policy. The disaffected Republicans include outgoing Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, three former Kansas Senate presidents and three former Kansas House speakers. More than half are former legislators, and the list includes former U.S. Rep. Jan Meyers, who represented the Kansas City-area 3rd District from 1985 to 1997. They announced that they formed Republicans for Kansas Values because of their concerns about the

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
