Dishonesty Is Standard Policy

Sarah Palin:

Must I Repeat? Quit Making Things Up!

Outrageous. Once again the cover-up is worse than the “crime.” Secretary of State John Kerry WAS on his boat while Egypt fell into turmoil resulting in an overthrow of its new government ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood that the Obama Administration had so recently supported and may still support. (That, however, we do not know because President Obama’s absolutely dithering foreign policies, his “leading from behind,” and his benign statements on the Muslim Brotherhood make no sense to sensible people.)

The State Department categorically denied Kerry was on his boat. Yet CBS had pictures to prove it. Goodness. There is no need to lie, even on such a “little” thing as the location of a government leader during a military confrontation happening in real time. (Benghazi? Ring a bell? There still isn’t anyone in the media who’ll find out where our Commander-in-Chief was that night.) Come on, Obama Administration! It’s no big darn deal that Kerry was on his boat! We expect, and deserve, to assume that our highest ranking public servants to whom We the People have given the most responsibility are always working – even when they’re clearing their heads and breathing in some fresh air on a yacht, or sweating away stress on a basketball court, or yukking it up with pals on the fairway… let’s trust they’re always preparing for the proverbial 3:00 AM phone call.

Being on his boat isn’t the issue. Blatantly deceiving the American people is the issue.

Our government, yet again, either had no idea where the boss was, or worse yet, they lied to us. (Oops-a-daisy. Correction. In Obamaspeak, we were told the “least untruthful statement.”) Our government directed its swift-ly boat changing denials to what one can only surmise is their perception of who we are: a nation of sheep – heads down, grazing away, gullible, ignorant, and undeserving of truth.

Confronted with photographic evidence, the State Department merely tossed the public a handful of hay today in its tepid effort to kinda-sorta explain the whole thing away. Something about, well, yeah, so the evidence contradicted all their public claims, but… eh, no harm, no foul. And like good herder dogs, with calm authority to avoid commotion, the bureaucrats barked the suggestion that we all just move along now.


For most people telling the truth comes naturally. It takes a conscious effort to lie. For members of the Obama administration, lying comes naturally. I’m not talking about secrecy or evasiveness, I’m talking about reflexive dishonesty. Lying is their first resort.

Joe Isuzu would fit right in with that bunch.

    People that actually do something in government positions of trust eventually learn these things. Some call this process “gaining experience”. Others say merely campaigning for office isn’t the same thing as gaining experiencing in governance, but they must be wrong because the most informed voters of the world disagreed with that silliness, twice. So who ya gonna believe, Ms. Palin or those lying eyes in DC? Tough choice.

    LOL, speaking of lying, this last child of mine is compulsively honest. We have actually had to teach her how to either use some deception or keep your darn mouth shut. When a teacher asks your opinion, they don’t really want your opinion, they want you tell them what they want to hear. When Dad wants to know what potential dangers you’ll face going out on a date, he’s looking for reassurance, not a laundry list of the threats you might encounter! Duh!

    Anyway, I’ve really learned that in order to succeed socially, you have to practice a lot of deception. That’s probably why Obama is president and not Mitt Romney. Many people want and expect to be lied to.

    • Jadzia says:

      I have one of those, too! Unlike you, I love it, because otherwise I would NEVER know who hit whom first. : ) Sometimes I don’t even have to ask, he just blurts it out. He seems to do OK socially, though; he’s more the “if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all,” strong-and-silent type.

    I thought this article made some really good points:

    “It is capitalism, not democracy, that the Arab world needs most..”

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/egypt/10159983/It-is-capitalism-not-democracy-that-the-Arab-world-needs-most.html

    Of course that’s another thing we have to lie about, because capitalism is EVIL. Rather than state the obvious, we have to try and hide it behind terms like “democracy” and “freedom.” Needless to say, the right to elect your own leaders is kind of meaningless if your life is going to be about standing in bread lines and starving in the streets. A huge part of “democracy” is capitalism and having economic freedom. “Winning hearts and minds” requires giving people an economic system they want to invest in.

    Watched a few minutes of Toure a few minutes ago. He actually said that even though Zimmerman was kind, tutored little black kids, and most of the time wasn’t racist, he was clearly racist that night. And he made it clear, no matter how un-racist a white person seems most of the time, they’re always racist. Another person on the panel then said, the best thing they hope for this trial is that young black people wake up and realize, racism is real.

    Words fail me.

    • yttik says:

      It’s really sad because there are so many lessons to be learned from this case that would actually make young people’s lives better, like how to think before you act, like how to diffuse violence rather than escalate it. Young men, especially black men, are often killed because they act out every bit of aggression they have……on each other.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I hope the next Trial of the Century involves a black shooting a white. Oh wait, that would just be a local crime story 😉

      Anyhow, thanks for watching Toure so I don’t have to. heh.

    • votermom says:

      • Jadzia says:

        Once again, you have posted my thought before I could. (Damn time difference.) Either Barack Obama is white or George Zimmerman is not. MATH, people, math.

    • lyn says:

      What I’ve learned from the Zimmerman trial is that the mob rules.

    • piper says:

      Toure should discuss the murders in Chicago over the 4th – 6 dead and 28 injured. Can’t do that because it’s black on black crime?

      • Jadzia says:

        Oh, how I do NOT miss those Chicago summers. About a week before I moved away, we had a heatwave in which scores of people died. Most of them were elderly African-Americans who died of heatstroke in their own homes because they were afraid to open their windows or to leave their homes for someplace air conditioned. It was beyond sad. That’s how bad crime was in Chicago back in ’95. 6 murders in one weekend (not to mention the injuries), that kinda sounds like things have not really improved.

        • leslie says:

          And yesterday, while playing in the park, a 5yr old boy was shot in the back as he was running to his mother. Sadly, he died. Another young child was also shot in the neck and lived (thank goodness). But I didn’t hear bronco saying if he had a child, he’d look like either of these children. Why? Because they died at the hands of black boys. That’s why.
          (I was in Chicago in 95, too. It was miserable. And over 700 people died from that heat – nearly all AA elderly. I think the situation might be similar these days as the violence has spread – if that could be possible.)

    • elliesmom says:

      I was dealing with the torture of trying to find a new bathing suit today when I overheard a lady on her cell phone in the next stall talking about the Martin case. Apparently one black woman on the jury would have been enough for a conviction, and that’s why the racist judge didn’t allow any of them on the jury. Also, self-defense means if someone is punching you, you get to punch them back. But if you can’t fight as well as the guy hitting you, that’s your problem. You don’t get to use a gun. But the white guy is going to get off because there are no black mamas on the jury. At least the person she was talking to appeared to disagree with her.

  13. piper says:

    Any respect that I had for Kerry was lost when I learned about his trip with Jane to Hanoi during the Nam conflict.

    Obama wishes everyone a nice weekend. And I don’t believe THIS photo is real either…..

  15. leslie says:

    While reading the SP fb entry, I was reminded of When Condi Rice went shoe shopping in NYC during the Katrina disaster. The uproar was enormous (on the Dem/Liberal/Prog side). But she had nothing to do with that crisis. She was SOS, not involved with national or natural disasters. Now that “our” SOS goes yachting during the Egyptian revolution, we hear lies and/or crickets.

    Yup, It is different when “we” do it.

    now Boliva has offered snowden asylum.

      I am confused by the reports that I am seeing on this. It seems like a few weeks ago, there were Latin American countries saying that they would grant him asylum, but he had to get there first. Are these new offers different?

      I give Capeheart 3 pinnochios.

      • Anthony says:

        Capeheart is a bona fide, card carrying Obot.

        I’m surprised he didn’t suggest that anyone who thinks GZ was defending himself against a dimwitted wannabe thug just doesn’t like the idea “of a black man in the white house”. That oh-so-clever talking point has re-emerged in spades (no pun).

        • DeniseVB says:

          I think it was Mark Steyn who said GZ’s never had the chance for a fair trial or a favorable media since Obama injected himself in the case with the infamous ” If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon”. The fact that GZ didn’t flee the country with those odds against him was stupid too. 😉

        • Anthony says:

          Yes, the public adoption (to incite racial tension before the election) was pretty stunning. First, Henry Louis Gates. Then Trayvon.

          I’m waiting for “If I had a brother who ran an abortion clinic, he’d look like Gosnell” to come out of his mouth. Its only a matter of time. After all, it is an election year…

    This woman encapsulates my thoughts on abortion better than anything I’ve ever read. What is human? And how dangerous is it to devalue it?

    I’m prochoice (as is she) for practical reasons. But I refuse to make myself feel better about difficult and sometimes justified choices by denying another human being’s essential humanity. That way lies madness and great evil.

    Our Man In Nantucket
    There was a man in Nantucket
    To important work he said “F*ck it”
    “I’ve got yachting to do,
    new ketchup flavors to stew”
    said the botoxed horseface in Nantucket.

    Once caught ‘midst the swells in Nantucket
    Our man once again said “oh, F*ck it”
    “Just lie through our teeth,
    there’s no evidence I’m effete,
    shout ‘liar’ and ‘he’s not in Nantucket!’”

    When pictures emerged from Nantucket
    new excuses were heard in Pawtucket
    “I’m not windsurfing or soused, I’m here with my spouse – we’re hiding tax money in buckets.”

    Psaki at State, not Manhassett,
    lied for the man in Nantucket
    Sarah Palin she screamed “you lie like a dream”
    And “What the Hell happened in Benghazi?”

      The train’s conductor, who was in a hotel at the town at the time of the crash, is being questioned by police, according to CTV News.

      He had parked the train in Nantes, about 12km away, as he waited for someone to take over his shift, when it somehow ‘got released’, the railway company’s vice-president Joseph McGonigle said.

      ‘We’re not sure what happened, but the engineer did everything by the book. He had parked the train and was waiting for his relief,’ he added.

      something is wrong here. you do not split a crew. when the crews hours of service are up. the train in parked and the whole crew gets relieved and taken to a rest stop

          a crew is supposed to tie down a train on a siding clearing the main track. the whole crew usually signs up and signs off at the same time.

    Referee beheaded after killing player
    An amateur football match in Brazil led to two deaths as a referee was beheaded by spectators after he had stabbed a player.

    The shocking incidents occurred in Maranhao, Brazil, last Sunday. According to reports, referee Otavio Jordao da Silva fatally stabbed footballer Josenir dos Santos Abreu.

    Dos Santos Abreu is believed to have struck the referee after questioning a decision. In retaliation, Jordao da Silva stabbed the player.

    Having witnessed the incident, an outraged group of spectators turned on the referee. He was tied up, beaten, stoned and quartered. They then put his head on a stake and planted it in the middle of the pitch.

    One man, Luiz Moraes de Souza, 27, has been arrested over the incident. Police are searching for two more suspects.

    Valter Costa is handling the case and, in a statement, he said: “One crime never justifies another crime. Actions likes this do not collaborate with the legality of state law.”
