“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” Exodus 20:15
“The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” Matthew 7:25
It’s silly season again, election time. With it, we are inundated with lies, falsehoods, and deceptions. For me as a consumer of all things political and current events, it is difficult to keep up and not get confused. I can hardly imagine what it must be like for the Average Joe who’s simply trying to eek out a living for himself and his family yet dutifully casts a vote every two or four years.
Democrats and Republicans are saying opposite things from each other most of the time, except at election time we seem to hear more moderate and conservative talk from Dem candidates and their party bosses. Both can’t be right. A simple but not always accurate guide to who is telling the truth is to evaluate who is changing their position during election season. Who is changing their tune to attract voters at the right time? Who is staying consistent in their messaging? This method of ferreting out liars isn’t fool proof because politicians are, well, politicians. Regardless, let’s use this method to take a look at some of the hot issues of the day, shall we?
Since the SCOTUS’ Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade, we’ve been told that women will die as a result of not being able to have an abortion. Did we all miss the many stories of women dying who haven’t been able to get an abortion? Has the Dem media just neglected to report these many tragedies to us? Not likely. Maybe the mass deaths of mothers-to-be is a lie.
How about the claims from Dems and their media that Donald Trump’s rhetoric endangered lives and caused deaths at the hands of “MAGA Republicans”. They claim to this day that DJT called Nazis “fine people”. They claim his rhetoric caused the death of a protester who was run over at a Charlottesville demonstration by a “MAGA Republican” extremist. These same Dems and their media call Donald Trump responsible for the Capitol Hill riot on January 6, 2021, falsely including the deaths of police officers. Never mind that Mr. Trump called for “peaceful” demonstrations. Of course, none of these claims are true and have been debunked multiple times. It’s hard for truth to catch up to lies. The Dems and their media continue repeating these lies.
On September 1, 2022, ‘a date which will live in infamy’, Dark Brandon announced to the world that all supporters of Donald Trump are domestic terrorists who threaten the very foundation of our “democracy”. What are democracy loving patriots supposed to do with that? Their Dear Leader has named the number one threat to our republic (or as they refer to it, our democracy), Republican extremist Trump supporters. On Sunday September 18, 2022, Shannon Brandt, 41, a North Dakota man used his vehicle to kill 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson because Ellingson was part of a Republican “extremist group”. The media coverage of this Brandon inspired political murder, you ask?
“While the Fox News Channel and Newsmax both started reporting this story on the evening of September 20, NewsBusters found zero coverage on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC. How about our taxpayer-funded PBS and NPR? Zero coverage. The New York Times and The Washington Post had nothing.” Newsbusters.org
The Democrat media has learned well how to lie by omission. Politically motivated murders are no longer of any interest. They’re so passé. Ask yourself which side is it that has changed its mind on this just in time for the midterms?
Today, FBI whistleblowers are blowing the lid off the January 6 persecutions of Trump supporters. One such whistleblower, FBI Special Agent Steve Friend, was just fired by the FBI for not going along with the FBI’s anti-Trump political shenanigans. That loud chirping sound you hear is crickets coming from the formerly mainstream media. A protected whistleblower is being summarily fired and the media couldn’t care less. Remember the name of the anonymous whistleblower from Donald Trump’s first impeachment regarding Ukraine? You probably don’t since it was a highly guarded government top secret. Anyone who dared even to indirectly utter the name, Eric Ciaramella, was immediately flogged by the press and threatened with prosecution, even members of Congress. My how things have changed. From heroic patriot Eric Ciaramella to persona non grata FBI Special Agent Steve Friend. Government whistleblowers are no longer a protected class in D.C.
Noticed lately all the Democrat candidate ads purporting to support the police? It would be funny if it weren’t so tragic. Even John “Release 1/3 of all prisoners” Fetterwoman is now laughably pro-police. Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) NH is in a tight reelection and her sudden concern for the border and crime haven’t gone unnoticed by one non-profit group, Citizens for Sanity. One of their Hassan print ads in the Union Leader states,
“Thank you, Senator Hassan, for keeping the border open. Sex traffickers could never succeed without friends like you.”
“Thank you, Senator Hassan, for voting to keep predators out of prison. Jail is no place for violent criminals.”
Two years ago, “Defund the Police” was all the rage in Democrat circles. Even Prez candidate Biden and his VP pick Harris were all in on this craze. He thought transferring police funding to other areas was a neat idea while Kamala helped bail out anti-police rioters.
“Barkan: We can reduce the responsibilities assigned to the police and redirect some of the funding for police into social services, mental health counseling and affordable housing… Are you open to that kind of reform?
Biden: Yes, I proposed that kind of reform… The last thing you need is an up-armored Humvee coming into a neighborhood. It’s like the military invading! They don’t know anybody. They become the enemy…
Barkan: But do we agree that we can redirect some of the funding?
Biden: Yes! Absolutely.”
Are you going to believe Joseph Robinette and his new pro-police Dem clones or your lying eyes and ears about who is in favor of defunding the police?
Regarding illegal aliens, so-called sanctuary cities and states and their Dem mayors and governors are backtracking faster than a coon hound on a skunk. Republican governors DeSantis and Abbott have caused Chicago Mayor Lightfoot, D.C. Mayor Bowser and Martha’s Vineyard State Rep Fernandes to eat their own illegal alien fake virtual signaling. The Martha’s Vineyard illegal alien welcome mat was quickly pulled up by the National Guard. Who is it that is changing their tune on sanctuary cities?
It’s really not hard to see who is squirming and shifting and being chameleonlike during election season. Those flipping and flopping the most on the issues are usually the ones doing the most lying. Do your homework. Do your research. It’s harder to squirm around if you’re on solid ground, a firm foundation. A foundation of lies is no foundation at all, thus the squirming. And ask yourself why pols try to sound moderate or even conservative during campaigns? They also know leftwing lunacy doesn’t work so well in campaigns. They know to save that nonsense until safely after the election. Buyer (voter) beware.
