Barack Obama is the quintessential government bureaucrat, which in our fine nation of laws and not men is perhaps the ultimate insult. Part and parcel to the bureaucrat’s ways is the liberal use of manipulative lies, all designed to destroy freedom.
Sometimes blogging is about curating things for readers — gathering disparate information and presenting it in a unified and coherent way. I am happy to offer today’s survey of some of the biggest of Obama’s lies that are now being exposed by the bright shining light of the truth. And even more important than the truth is the acceptance of it by the masses, for without such acceptance the truth gets trampled and crushed.
- I have written dozens of essays about the monumental fraud known as Dodd-Frank, which was one of the great travesties of mr. Obama’s first term. Dodd-Frank was Obama’s Orwellian act of “financial reform”, which reformed precisely nothing, by design. For years Liberals have bought the fake line that Obama and the Democrats addressed the global financial crisis Today we have this (emphasis added):
The 2010 Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is “a failure” that did not remove protections for “too-big-to-fail” banks and whose authority is a “paper tiger,” according to panelists at a conference on large financial institutions Wednesday.While the mix of conservative and liberal speakers at an American Enterprise Institute discussion differed sharply on how to restore the country’s rigid financial industry, all agreed on one point: The 2010 law — commonly known as “Dodd-Frank” after its co-sponsors, then-Sen. Chris Dodd and then-Rep. Barney Frank — has utterly failed in its purpose of reducing the systemic risk posed by enormous financial institutions. <source>
- The government is now acknowledging, indirectly, that the scanners in airports generate nude and invasive photographs of citizens. The acknowledgement comes in the form of the gradual removal of the machines as a result of their manufacturer failing to fix the nudity problem — you know, the problem that we were all told was not a problem (see my essay Airport “Security” and Other Orwellian Notions). Let the truth, and its acknowledgement, set us free of prying eyes:
Those airport scanners with their all-too revealing body images will soon be going away. The Transportation Security Administration says the scanners that used a low-dose X-ray will be gone by June because the company that makes them can’t fix the privacy issues. <source>
And now #3 for today: Barack Obama’s make-believe stated intention of seeking Mexico’s help in securing the southern border of the United States. This bold-faced lie was delivered through Obama’s mouthpiece in the NSA…
“With Mexico, first and foremost, they are critical to our ability to secure the border,” said Ben Rhodes, an Obama deputy national security adviser. <source>
You think the Mexicans are working hard to help us secure the border? Read on.
Not to be outdone, President Pena Nieto added his own Orwellian non-truth:
Despite the intense interest in the immigration debate among Mexicans, Pena Nieto carefully avoided injecting himself in the issue. While he commended the U.S. for tackling the challenge, he said the congressional debate “is a domestic affair.” <source>
“Domestic affair”, meaning it only affects the United States?
Really now, how about all those billions of dollars that get sucked out of the American economy by millions and millions of illegals who live here and send money back home.
This chart says it all: witness the flow of remittances (money sent back to home countries by foreigners living abroad):
Do you see that fat blue line — the biggest one — going from the USA to Mexico? That would be $22 billion per year in hard currency — US dollars flowing into Mexican mattresses and bank accounts.
You think the Mexican president is going to allow that money to diminish?
Of course not, and on the contrary he will do everything he can to increase the tide of illegal immigrants into the United States, committing a willful invasion of his neighbor and a re-conquering of the American southwest, as many Mexicans proclaim openly.
Good thing we have a president who is wise to his game and is going to shut down the border for good…..oh wait, Romney is not the president….a man who grew up in a foreign country, raised by parents who despised the West and the United States, is occupying the seat.
Looks like Mexico can join China in wiping its shoes on the backs of proud Americans, all enabled by Barack Hussein Obama.
