Obama Chief-of-Staff Goes on National Television and Stone Cold LIES

Home - by - July 1, 2012 - 14:00 America/New_York - 27 Comments

When asked why Obama has implemented executive privilege in order to block a congressional effort to have Fast and Furious become transparent, Jack Lew chose to answer the question by saying, “let’s go back to the facts.”

Townhall -

Rather than answering the question directly, Lew said, “Let’s go back to the facts,” and immediatly got his “facts” wrong. Lew claimed Fast and Furious started during the Bush administration. That assertion is false. Operation Fast and Furious started in September 2009, President Obama took office in January 2009. Lew also went on to defend Attorney General Eric Holder by saying this was a “regional program.” If that was the case, then why is executive privilege necessary or valid in this case? Either the documents requested show some kind of White House communication or President Obama improperly asserted the privilege to buy Holder more time. Lew also said “every document related to the decisions up to that point has been shared,” which is also false. There are 240,000 Fast and Furious documents available. The Justice Department has turned over 7,000. Of those 7,000 the majority are sheets of black ink due to extreme redaction. In relation to specific communications, just before the Oversight Committee contempt vote two weeks ago to hold the Attorney General in contempt, Chairman Darrell Issa narrowed his focus from 70,000 documents to 1300, yet Holder still failed to deliver anything substantial. Not to mention, 21 Democrats voted for civil contempt against Holder last week, which destroys Lew’s “political” argument.

And finally: Lew said the Obama administration has been the most transparent administration ever.

    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    BREAKING NEWS: “Obama Chief-of-Staff Goes on National Television and Stone Cold LIES”. No reason to read the news until November. I know what commies say and do, and what they’re going to say and do. They’re dangerous, evil and boring.

    @Stranded – that quote needs to be somehow elevated to more national prominence and awareness. It needs to be inserted into the American consciousness. Unfortunately, the majority of progtard voters don’t have a clue who Jossef Goebbels is.

    No one, and I mean NO ONE, could pay me enough to lie like this. I know the reason they can look straight into a camera and lie is because they do honestly believe the ends justifies the means and lying is part of any means possible. That’s why the lie. It’s not a parallel universe and amongst themselves they know they are lying, but they do believe in a socialist/Marxist/Communist/Utopian answer to humankind’s fallen nature. Lying is simply another characteristic which, in a twisted way, supports their premise, but you never see them pass laws against lying, do you?

    The amount of lying done by the 0bama administration (and the Donks in support of him) is unprecedented in the history of this country. Watergate didn’t have a body count. Anyone who still supports this bunch of evil SOBs is either an idiot, severely misinformed or part of the evil that’s destroying our country.

    @Stirrin — They are told that Goebbels was part of a right-wing, conservative, reatcionary gov’t called Fascism. The fact that fascism is not a form of gov’t but just a means to an end, is irrelevant to the liberal lying liars and the lies they tell.

    If the schools told the truth about socialism, democrats would never win another election.

    This fucking piece of shit scum-fuck works for the most crooked president we have had. And if you listen to liberals, they will tell you the opposite. I am afraid for our Country. I am afraid for our children. I am afraid for our troops. Seems like history repeated itself; the 1930′s are back to haunt us. Vote for a free America in November…

    Dhemmeroids rule the airwaves. FOX, if you think about ‘Fair & Balanced’ just means you’ll get to hear both sides and decide, unlike MSNBC. They get yet another platform. The Democrats, in this case courtesy of Lew keep, their voters dumb by way of flat out B.S.

    The latest incredulous message being hammered home is that the ‘RACIST GOP, is suppressing the vote. Remember the Philadelphia polls in ’08, The New Black Panthers, billy clubs and intimidation. AG Himpton Holder gave ‘em a pass. Of course our divisive president is down that.

    They’re actually people who think Michelle Obama is a warm fuzzy, earthy gardener, looking out for our kids. We’re being force fed fertilizer. AG Himpton Holder in an ’09 Black History Month event, called us a nation of racial cowards, recently he doubled down on it to Sharpton in an interview.

    The wiretap application drop is the biggest news, and that needs to be mentioned everytime F&F is.

    You can read the transcripts in an article called issa-sneaks-wiretap-info-into at sipseystreetirregulars (unfortunately it seems as if I can not link either the full congressional records or that site, you will have to search I guess)

    You will notice Lanny Brewer signed off on them. He is Holders #2 man in the DOJ. Holder continues to claim Lanny didnt know – which, you know, is blatant lying (and illegal, plus indicates a coverup)

    Lanny actually knew in March 2010 – that is 9 months prior to Terry being killed, and a full year before the program was stopped. (the email to stop it can be seen at Congressman Grassley’s webpage – its from March 9, 2011)

    This is also a OCDETF case, and the entire Administration knows that such cases can only be signed off on by high-ranking DOJ personal. (See JanetN. in front of Congress on October 26, 2011 to watch her state as much then dodge answering if THIS DOJ would have to know)

    So who are they covering for?

    At least one Whistleblower is apparently indicating it is Andrew Shapiro and James Steinberg that were ultimately behind the operation ~ both of whom worked directly under Hillary Clinton. The whistleblower states that they should be called before Congress and forced to testify on what Hillary knew and when she knew it. It is implied she is the one behind it all (she was apparently obsessed over her “90% of guns in Mexico” lie being exposed as nonsense; plus its well known she wants Bills assault rifle ban in place)

    @Stranded -

    “….If the schools told the truth about socialism, democrats would never win another election…..”

    So true!

    For the past 50 years, conservatives in the private sector have been focused on making a better life for themselves and their families, while commie-socialists have been infiltrating the public sector.

    No one expected it, no one ever thought it would happen here. And then one day we woke up hungover after the 2008 election (some were rejoicing, others drowning their sorrows) and the fog in our brain cleared and the eyes focused, and we realized what has happened.

    Our government, our schools, the media and even the military have been infected. And our employers were more than happy to participate in the takeover because it meant higher profits and executive bonuses.

    Above all, I blame the media the most for not alerting the people about what was happening and of being complicit in enabling the usurpation of this great country. The MSM must be dismantled.

    Mr. BS,
    I hate to disagree, but the HUAC and the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations stood in the 40s and proved that gov’t and education had been horribly infiltrated by socialists. The media and Hollyweird were already subsidiaries of socialism and were successful at putting America back to sleep.

    They’ve been active for over 100 years while we drifted in and out of the twilight zone.

    Obamacare, an Absolutely Monumental Fraud

    Fraudulent governmental initiatives and fraudulent private organizations all have one thing in common: They want the public to believe they are something they are not.

    Case in point: Obamacare.

    (The monumental frauds Facebook.com, Google.com, the Washington Post, and the United Nations, all of which are great fans of our president and all of which adhere to the misguided liberal principles of deception and distortion, will follow.)

    Above all else, President Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat Party hoped Americans would fall for the lies and hype and believe the Affordable Care Act was eminently affordable and that people who already had medical insurance and who were averse to socialistic medicine would be “permitted” by their government to keep their coverage and their doctors.

    As when Obama “absolutely” pledged that Obamacare would not impose any new taxes, both claims have proven to be frauds.

    By the time Obamacare is fully implemented in 2018, it not only will be unaffordable to many people but 20 new or greatly-increased taxes will have been levied on Americans and millions of the currently-insured would be able, “permitted,” to retain their doctors only if government bureaucrats approve of their physicians and their course of treatment.

    Of course, none of that applies to those bureaucrats, or congressmen, or other federal employees since the ACA exempts them–and millions of workers in protected unions and industries–from Obamacare’s onerous and largely unknown provisions.

    When the United States Supreme Court unexpectedly ruled last week that Obama’s legacy issue was constitutional and is now indisputably the law of the land, SCOTUS neglected to incorporate very relevant Obamacare details in its controversial decision.

    Never mind that passage of Obamacare had so consumed the president and the Democrat Party for almost two years while they controlled the presidency and both houses of Congress that they were forced to pass the ACA by bribing and intimidating opponents.

    Never mind that Obama and his Democrat Party ignored far more critical problems . . .

    @Tim –

    50 years, 100 years, whatever. Prior to the 60′s, our country had the moral fiber and fortitude to stand up against communism. Since then, we have grown increasingly self-absorbed, increasingly amoral and Godless, and increasingly effeminate. We have become easy pickin’s.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if we could hook up a lie detector to all of them and when they told one, big or small, a jolt of 300 volts would go throughout their body. Or hook up a lie detector that says out loud, “LIE DETECTED,” and have someone do a Vince Flynn Time Limit on them. I’d get pay-per-view to watch it.

    He came back to the point that Obama “actually cut taxes” for Americans that past 3-1/2 years. So watch for the spin that despite the increase in taxes related to Obamacare that they are offset by larger reductions in the tax burden the past 3=1?2 years.
