By John F. Di Leo – 

In 2015, one of the endless subsets of the United Nations – specifically, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or UNFCCC – gathered to write a retreat from modernity based on the junk science known as “man-made global warming,” or, more recently, since the discovery of the undeniably fabricated “hockey stick” model that originally justified the idea, “man-made global climate change.”

Representatives of 195 countries – yes, that’s almost every country on earth – signed onto the agreement, commonly known as The Paris Accord. In many cases, one representative’s signature was enough, and in others, the signature is meaningless without ratification by the country’s legislature, politburo, or other ruling parties. For example, President Obama’s approval was enough to count the USA in the 195, but since our Senate would never ratify such an outrageous treaty (one prays, anyway), we are not counted among the ratifying parties.

We’re not alone; only 148 of the 195 signatories have actually ratified it.  That still sounds significant, of course, but it’s worth remembering because the press and their puppets in the Democratic Party (or is it the other way around?) give the impression that we would stand alone before the world if we refused to ratify it. In fact, with the USA’s withdrawal, the USA just joins a full quarter of the earth’s countries that had a representative sign onto the thing in the excitement of the meeting, but were blessed with legislatures that thought through the matter, and quietly denied or postponed the fool notion.

The Paris Accord

The accord was championed by the Left for its aggressive attack on the production of “greenhouse gases,” demanding that countries replace existing forms of energy production with “green energy” sources, such as solar and wind power.

The fact that solar and wind, which certainly have their place, are incredibly inefficient, and therefore incredibly costlier, than existing sources, didn’t bother the negotiators, for two primary reasons:

  • First, if governments subsidize the utilities with tax dollars, particularly some other country’s tax dollars (guess whose?), people might not notice their massive increase in energy cost, and
  • Second, the USA is the only donor country that was seriously expected to honor the commitment. Nobody honestly believed that other signers, like China or India, were ever going to abandon the energy that keeps their economies growing.  The USA would suffer honorably, and that would be sufficient for them.

The agreement is designed to have a huge financial commitment by all member nations, including a commitment to $100 billion per year globally in specific funding called “climate finance,” much of which would be direct transfer payments from the USA and other developed nations to the LDDCs – the “least developed developing countries” of the world.

It is based on the idea that of all the things nations have to worry about – defense against invasion, unemployment, epidemics, crime waves, terrorism, etc. – everyone on earth should recognize that climate change is the issue that outranks all others.

There is really only one way to have a prayer of convincing a country under assault by Boko Haram or ISIS, or by Ebola or Malaria, or by mass unemployment or the threat of war, to adopt such a program: if you see the biggest, most successful economies on earth doing it first.

The Paris Accord was really designed to be all about peer pressure; if the United States, the most dynamic economy on earth, was a believer, then that would be good enough reason for all the other developed economies, and all those third world LDDCs too, to fall in line.

When President Trump, on behalf of the United States, announced our withdrawal from this suicidal do-it-yourself bankruptcy engine, that brought down the whole house of cards. The world leaders who support the thing must now denounce Mr. Trump and his country, as derisively as possible, in order to keep everyone else in line.  Just as the USA would have been a leader if we had ratified, they must now fear that the USA will be a leader in fleeing the foolish thing.

Make no mistake: the opponents of Paris are right. Because of the incredible cost of this agreement, a nation’s leaders must make a clear and absolute choice: either support this climate change theory and cause severe economic constriction at home, or work toward the prosperity of one’s countrymen by dumping the agreement.

The only moral choice for an honorable national leader is to support his own nation’s economy, and walk away from The Paris Accord.  The fact that 148 nations failed to make that choice appears to be quite an indictment, but remember, in many of their cases, they don’t really have to give anything up.

For much of the third world, signing the Paris Accord was tantamount to signing up for welfare benefits; if you qualify, if it’s free, if you have no moral compunction about collecting such charity, why not do it?

Climate Change – Truths and Lies

Among the primary lies in this whole debate is the Left’s claim that the right is denying science.  In fact, it’s the Right that’s using the scientific method – looking for evidence, studying it carefully, dismissing evidence that’s been proven to be fabricated, making rational judgments based on unassailable facts.

The concept of manmade climate change was based on the famous “hockey stick” climate model which was proven to be utterly fabricated, years ago.  The evidence that it wasn’t errant, but intentional, is found in chains of emails that the entire world has seen.  The entire theory is based on a lie, on falsified research that was born of twin desires for grant money and the political goal of stronger government.

Even their own statistics now claim that there has been no average warming for the past twenty years; their whole claim of a rising global average temperature is based on the period before they dreamed up the whole idea.  Since the publication of Al Gore’s famous work of science fiction in the early 90s – “Earth in the Balance” – even their own calculations show nothing to worry about, in the specific area of “terrifying rising average temperatures.”

But even so, this does not mean that there aren’t climate-related challenges.   There are true climate-related dangers in the world, as there have alwaysbeen.

The Left’s other primary lie is that they are the only ones who care about climate-related risks, the only ones who care about the people, towns, and even countries that may suffer if the horrors they fear come to pass.

Again, the Left’s position is simply, utterly wrong.

The Left does one thing, and only one:  upon deciding that they fear worse weather and possibly rising seas, which would threaten people in low-lying coastal towns, people near rivers, people in hurricane, earthquake, or tornado paths… the Left literally decided to strive to change the weather; to stop the tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, and rising seas from ever happening in the first place.

There is no proof anywhere that anything they propose – changing our sources of energy, raising taxes to an even more confiscatory level, paying for new palaces for third world dictators under the guise of providing their countries with new green power plants, etc. – will make any difference at all to the earth’s climate.  It’s a theory, utterly unproven, and likely unprovable.   It’s a desperate prayer by people who have chosen to put all their eggs in one untested basket.

By contrast, the Right’s position is both more realistic on science and more compassionate toward the people.

The Right recognizes that there have always been hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and tornadoes, so our economies need to be able to deal with these tragedies.

The Right wants our people to be prosperous, so that if towns and bridges are knocked down, they can rebuild… if ports are flooded, they can be restored… if people’s livelihoods are washed out, they have new opportunities so they can get a fresh start.

What the Right recognizes – but the Left either does not, or will not – is that the cure for the dangers of a changing climate is not some stubborn effort to imagine that we mortals can change the weather at all.  No, the cure is to have a vigorous economy that can withstand any shock… a private sector – and a public sector too – that can afford to bounce back from the worst disasters.

The Right believes in taking advantage of all the opportunities of capitalism and modern technology to feed the hungry, to heat the cold, to air-condition the hot, and to house the homeless.

The Right advocates a growth economy, harnessing energy – yes, ALL kinds of energy – to create enough industry, and therefore enough prosperity, that we can afford to react to anything that Mother Nature chooses to throw at us.

By contrast, what does the Left do, in its hubris and delusion, dreaming that it can bring climate stability to a planet that has had ice ages and heat spells, glaciers and earthquakes, hurricanes and floods, virtually since the dawn of time?

The Left dismisses all the opportunities provided by technology and economic advancement, even intentionally suppresses them, in a vain hope that fewer cars and fewer furnaces, greater poverty and a literal retreat into the past, might keep the icebergs in the polar regions and keep storms from turning into hurricanes as they have always done.

The Left is literally using windmills … to tilt at windmills.

The Nature of Godless Democratic Lies.

by William Green

By now you’ve likely heard (or read) one or more speeches given by Dr. Jonathan Gruber, Ph.D., Economics, MIT, describing the American electorate as stupid, and that upon the basis of our stupidity, with hep from Obama’s complete lack of transparency aided and abetted by outright lies, Obamacare was torturously written and passed.

First, I partially agree with Dr. Gruber. I don’t have a Ph.D. in Economics but I did teach it at the undergraduate and graduate levels for several years with a couple Masters degrees and lots of self-study. There is no question that the electorate just prior to and after Obama’s election was and is more stupid than the electorate of 30 or 40 years ago. The International tests administered to young adults annually within several dozen nations, including China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, the European nations, Scandinavia, Russia, Australia, India, etc., have revealed a severe, multi-decade decline in the average Science, Math and Reading Scores of Americans vis-a-vis the rest of the developed and developing word. We used to be Number 1 in virtually every category, now we languish near the bottom. See the attached graphic for our relative basement position vis-a-vis those we compete against globally.

When I first heard Dr. Gruber speak about the need to lie to the electorate in order to pass Obamacare I did not catch the nuance of what he was saying: I just heard he thought we were dumb and thus Obamacare had to be written in a convoluted and tortured manner to fool us and garner our support.

But when I re-listened and listened again I had one of those rare “ah-ha” moments when you realize that what a Progressive is saying is not only true, but also revelatory and probative.

Dr. Gruber not only revealed what he and the entire Obama regime thinks about the electorate, or at least that slight majority of the electorate that was stupid enough to vote for and elect Obama twice, but offered proof probative of one of the allegations the smarter, more savvy, slightly less-than-the-majority electorate (aka Conservatives) has known for some time, and has been screaming at Godless Progressives to take note of in order to refudiate the Democratic Party: Godless Progressives purport to know what’s BEST for U.S., even when we — if told truthfully the nature, cost and ramifications of what they deem best for us — protest otherwise.

In other words, BIG Brother in BIG Government believes we’re too dumb, stupid and ignorant to know what’s best for U.S., but we shouldn’t worry because they do; and so, by virtue of their acquired degrees from the Ivy League, especially Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Princeton, and Yale which procure for them a type of special gnosis and seat them among the highest ranks of the global intelligentsia, they will pan what the electorate says it wants, will accept and pay for, and instead create what they know from their Marxist-indoctrination to be best for U.S., sugar-coat it — perform like Mary Poppins over her young charges, singing “a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down” — lie about what it really is, truly costs, and how it will actually work, obfuscate, ice it in opacity, and then ram it down our throats, causing us to choke and vomit. And call it Obamacare.

Obama and his enlightened acolytes employed fighter jet stealth technology in the legislative process, and then unleashed semi-senile gavel-wielder Nancy “Nanny” Pelosi to assure an uneasy electorate that we all would just have to pass the bill so afterward, we could finally learn what’s in it; damned if any of our elected members of Congress should read, re-read, and read it again before voting for it.

Specifically, Senate Majority Leader Dirty Harry Reid gutted like a Thanksgiving turkey a bi-partisan, House-passed veterans’ housing benefits bill (read, re-read and read THAT again), stuffed its gut with the tortured text of glitchy Obamacare — as bad or worse than the website when it was first launched — using an arcane Senate rule known as Reconciliation (whose rules state it may only be employed for House-originated revenue-raising budget legislation which Obamacare was not except as a TAX; in fact it was going to increase the national debt, not reduce it), essentially a parliamentary maneuver to get Obama’s eponymous law passed in the Senate with only 59 Democratic votes after the normally-needed 60th vote had been lost to newly installed Republican Senator Scott Brown, which forced the Democratically-controlled House to vote on it “as is” with all the errors, typos, and the BIG individual mandate that was a tax disguised as an unConstitutional Liberty-quashing compulsion under threat of retribution — with no opportunity for joint-chamber committee work to remove the errors, typos, Obamanations, and the onerous mandate to make it palatable to at least a few Republicans; and then passed it without a single vote in either chamber from the Grand Old Party of Know. The Democrats in both chambers of Congress with Obama as their cheerleader altered one-sixth of the entire U.S. Economy, about $2,700,000,000,000 annually, without a single vote from a duly elected Republican in either the People’s House of Representatives or the deliberative, compromise-finding, Senate.

Is it any wonder that a majority of the stupid electorate thinks this atrocious monstrosity deserves to be struck down for the legislative, abominable abortion it is.

The only more frightening thing about this historical truth is that a slight majority of the electorate may be so stupid, so naive, so self-loathing, and so dependent upon and addicted to BIG government that they will abdicate their own freedom and liberty, their own self-determination, and their own best interests together with their votes to BIG Obama in exchange for lots and lots more Welfare, Food Stamps, unemployment checks, ObamaBucks, ObamaFones and free healthcare at taxpayers’ expense.

45-State Study: Obamacare Offers Less Choice, Higher Prices, Breaking Another Promise

Liar, LiarA new and comprehensive comparison of health insurance options offered by Obamacare versus private websites finds that President Obama’s program offers less choice and higher prices than promised by the White House and leading Democrats.

Adding to the list of broken health care promises, the study from the National Center for Public Policy Research found that there were more and cheaper options available on websites outside the health insurance exchange in 2013 than on and state Obamacare exchanges.

The report, “Obamacare Exchanges: Less Choice, Higher Prices,” looked at options available for a 27-year-old single person and a 57-year-old couple in metropolitan areas across 45 states.
The report found that a 27-year-old male had about 10 more policies to choose from on and versus the exchange. The older couple had about nine more policy choices.

Ditto for the cost findings, with the 27-year-old male having access to 32 policies that cost less than the cheapest Obamacare offering, and the 57-year-old couple access to 29 cheaper policies.

“In general, consumers had substantially more policies to choose from on private websites such as and than they presently have on the exchanges,” said the study.

“Obamacare supporters, including the president himself and Nancy Pelosi, claimed the exchanges would yield more choice and lower prices,” said the study’s author, David Hogberg. “This study shows those claims do not stand up.”

The National Center for Public Policy Research, founded in 1982, describes itself as a “non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank.”

Weekend Edition: The Obamacare Crap Sandwich

By Craig Andresen

Obamacare is 100% pure crap and liberals and socialists are running away from it, using any desperate line of bull they can concoct to blame it on others.

They are now trying to blame it on the government shutdown.

It was NOT the Republicans who shut down the government…The Obama administration with the assistance of Harry Reid and the liberal/socialists of the senate did that.

We KNOW they did it because this administration had everything they needed ready to go the second the shutdown began.

They had their “closed” signs professionally printed by the THOUSANDS and barricades ready to be placed IMMEDIATELY and that could ONLY have been accomplished with PRIOR PLANNING.

It made no difference WHAT proposals the Republicans would have made leading up TO the shutdown…Obama said he would NOT negotiate and Reid was bound and determined to NOT allow a single measure put forward to see the senate floor for a vote.

Liberals and socialists had their talking points, all the names, “arsonists, hostage takers, ransom demanders, terrorists, extremists, racists” and others all lined up and were ready to let it fly and blame the Republicans for what THEY, the liberals and socialists, had planned.


Check your calendars…

How convenient that the government shutdown would coincide EXACTLY with the roll out of Obamacare.

This administration, we are now learning, had all the advanced warning necessary to KNOW, full well, that the Obamacare website was going to crash and burn.

They also knew that once that site went live, any who WERE able to log on would be met with the shock of their lives.

Sticker shock.

The high price of Obamacare insurance was going to be enough to stun and anger the public and Obama, his administration and his liberal/socialist minions in congress KNEW it.

This administration also knew that people, MILLIONS of Americans, were about to be kicked out of their existing insurance coverage and when THEY got a look at the prices of their new plans…THEY were going to be seeing RED.

In an attempt to keep people from achieving instant outrage, this administration, just a couple of weeks prior to the roll out, ordered that the browse feature of the Obamacare website be buried so deep within the site that those who managed to log in wouldn’t be able to get there without first entering all their personal information.

The intent, during the liberal/socialist administration’s imposed “shutdown” of the government was to brag about the “high numbers” of people trying to log on to the website in order to make it look as though there was a high demand for Obamacare and, they did just that.

They were lying.

Once the “shutdown” of 17% of the government came to an end…they were exposed.

Obamacare was exposed.

Obama’s lies regarding “if you like your plan…If you like your doctor…You can KEEP them…PERIOD” were exposed.

The obscene prices were exposed.

MILLIONS of Americans being kicked off their existing coverage was exposed.

And the liberal/socialist buffoons in congress who voted for Obamacare and defended Obamacare for the last 3 years were exposed.

Perhaps, most importantly…

The ideology behind it all, the driving force of this administration…SOCIALISM…Was exposed.

And now, liberals and socialists, like Frank Pallone from New Jersey, are left to lie about Obamacare as they try, uncomfortably, to dismiss the truth.

Pallone seems ready to wet himself here.

Pallone, trying to mask socialism, offers that nobody is going to buy lousy insurance if there is a better alternative. Pallone…OBAMACARE is lousy insurance and people are done buying the lies!!!

We know that the Obama administration is now, actively, blaming insurance companies for kicking Americans to the Obamacare curb.

We know that’s a lie because…

We also know that the original “grandfather clause” in Obamacare would have allowed people to keep what they already had and, that this administration quickly crafted NEW regulations which would make that IMPOSSIBLE by TIGHTENING the noose on Insurance companies within 2 months of passing the bill.

We now know that it’s not just a website purposefully designed to fail that is keeping people from enrolling in Obamacare.

OBAMACARE itself is keeping people from enrolling.

On day 1, October 1st, 2013, we know that 4.7 million Americans logged on and that all of 6…SIX PEOPLE bought into the Obama/Reid, Pelosi and…Pallone lies, and enrolled.

That is only 1/10,000 of 1% of those who logged on.

That destroys the liberal/socialist talking point and bragging point of high numbers.

We know that in those states with their own exchanges rather than the federal government exchange…approximately 80%-90% of those who have enrolled, have enrolled in Medicaid…the FREE healthcare and that only 10% or so have enrolled in out of pocket Obamacare insurance.

So far, in Oregon…ZERO have bought Obamacare and 100% have gone on free Medicad.

Liberals and socialists are running amok trying to convince people that this is all the fault of Republicans and the Tea Party. That this has been made worse because of the shutdown they are still trying to blame on the Republicans.

And the ideology behind it all…SOCIALISM…Is now fully exposed in that their liberals are now trying to tell those who simply can’t afford the “Affordable Care Act” that the reason they HAVE to buy Obamacare insurance is because whatever they had has been deemed…BY BIG GOVERNMENT AND BIG BROTHER…To be inadequate.


The lies and corruption just keep coming.

Obama hired an outfit, CGI Federal from Canada to build the Obamacare website.

CGI Federal has now been fired BY Canada for building THEIR loused up healthcare website.

What was it Obama said to do when HIS website wouldn’t work? Oh yes…Phone it in and fill out the PAPERwork and MAIL it in.

So…Who did he hire to process all that PAPERwork???


According to the Obama administration…“Serco is a highly-skilled company that has a proven track record in providing cost-effective services to numerous other federal agencies.

“The selection met all of the requirements for a full and open competition and, the timing enables us to be ready for marketplace open enrollment starting on October 1.”

Serco…The “highly skilled company that has a proven track record providing cost-effective service to numerous other federal agencies,” and a worldwide employer of 120,000 now under investigation for…RIPPING OFF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT to the tune of $80 MILLION dollars.

Now, we discover that the Senior VP of CGI Federal, the inept company that won the no-bid contract to build the insipid Obamacare website is none other than…Toni Townes-Whitley, a Princeton class of ’85, classmate of none other than…MICHELLE OBAMA.

And finally, the socialist Obama must hire “the best and brightest” to fix the Obamacare website. It must come as the ultimate shame to his ideology that the “best and brightest” work in the PRIVATE SECTOR and NOT for the government.

The website can be fixed but, the law itself cannot.

The law will fail as surely as has the ideology upon which it is based, Socialism, fails every time and in every place it has been tried and there are reason for that.

Obamacare, like socialism itself, requires other people’s money and while the Obama administration says the numbers aren’t available yet, they’re lying.

The number ARE available, those numbers are leaking out and they tell a sad tale for socialists.

When at least 80% of those who have been able to see the prices on their state run exchanges are enrolling for the FREE Medicaid rather than the out of pocket Obamacare…It’s failing.

When ONLY 1/10,000 of 1% of those who logged on to the Obamacare site on day 1 bought Obamacare…It’s failing.

That is because, Obamacare, just like socialism, is based on lies and corruption.

Liberals and socialists up for election in the house in 2014 must now run FROM Obamacare rather than ON Obamacare and those liberals and socialists in the senate, seeking to keep their seats in 2014 have to run away from it too.

They have all been exposed and now…THEY want the individual mandate delayed.

Funny, isn’t it?

Those are the exact same liberals and socialists who, just 4 weeks ago, called anyone who was asking for a delay…Terrorists, arsonists, extremists, hostage takers, ransom demanders and…Racists.

Now, Americans…ALL Americans know that Obamacare is A 100% crap sandwich and, they know exactly who packed their lunch.

If You Have to Lie

White House finally releases 1st briefing photo of Obama on night of Benghazi attack; Update: 3 months old?


The very first photo of President Barack Obama being briefed on Sept. 11, 2012, following the Benghazi terrorist attack was posted on the White House’s Flickr site on Thursday.

The White House has previously withheld photos of the president taken the night of the attack.

“Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor, left, updates the President and Vice President on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon and Chief of Staff Jack Lew are at right,” the photo’s description reads. The White House’s Flickr site claims the photo was taken on Sept. 11, 2012 and uploaded on Thursday.
While the photo doesn’t provide a lot of information, the picture does seem to confirm that Obama was briefed on the night of the Benghazi attack — and by whom. What was said — well, that’s another story.

The White House in any modern administration has an official photographer whose duty is to take pictures all day long of official and unofficial activities of the President. Sometimes those events are obviously momentous, while others only become so in retrospect. The White House releases some into the public domain on its Flickr site, but only those that please the administration. Others — like the photos of Barack Obama being briefed on the unfolding attack on our consulate in Benghazi on September 11th — require a little more effort to have released. In this case, it took public criticism (and perhaps the threat of a lawsuit) from several media outlets to get this picture released (via Fox and The Blaze):

Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor, left, updates the President and Vice President on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon and Chief of Staff Jack Lew are at right.
It took that much effort to release this? Both Fox and The Blaze note that this is only the first picture released and that more are expected to come, but I’m not sure why the White House bothered to withhold this. We knew these men were at the White House that evening. Jason Howerton argues that it at least corroborates what has been established earlier:

While the photo doesn’t provide a lot of information, the picture does seem to confirm that Obama was briefed on the night of the Benghazi attack — and by whom. What was said — well, that’s another story.
Actually, that will be the story. In this case, at least, a picture isn’t worth one of the actual words spoken. I doubt we’ll learn much from any of the photos taken that night, but the White House certainly makes it seem like we might with their strange cat-and-mouse strategy on releasing what should be public records.

Anyway, this will at least make for an interesting caption contest. Have at it in the comments!

Update: A non-story just got a little more … non. The White House may be coy on releasing all of the photos taken that night, but not this one. Jeryl Bier did a little cache digging and discovered that this got uploaded in October, about a month after it was taken — and even got used by Bag News in one of its posts a couple of days later. Check out the screen shots in Jeryl’s posts. Maybe Fox and The Blaze need to revisit this story a bit.

BREAKING NEWS: CIA Turns On Obama – Indicating Significant Cover-Up

Bill Burton's Ad lies and Gets Obama in Trouble

Obama Ad Accusing Romney of Killing Woman Immediately Falls Apart
The Obama political machine’s race to the bottom has dived deep beneath the muck of Harry Reid’s lies about Romney’s taxes and finally hit bedrock. Today Priorities USA released a new ad that will surely rank among the ugliest and most dishonest in the history of political campaigns. Titled “Understands” the ad features Joe Soptic describing how Mitt Romney is responsible for his wife’s death from lung cancer. It’s Lyndon Johnson’s Daisy ad made more personal and therefore even more vile.

Romney’s campaign was quick to blast the commercial. “President Obama’s allies continue to use discredited and dishonest attacks in a contemptible effort to conceal the administration’s deplorable economic record,” said spokesman Ryan Williams. “After 42 months of unemployment above 8 percent, it is clear that the President and his campaign do not have a rationale for reelection.”

The ad will air in the key battleground states of Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia and is part of a $20 million ad campaign by Priorities hammering Romney.

Soptic appeared previously in an Obama campaign ad that aired in battleground states in which he blasted Romney, saying Bain’s closure of the GST Steel plant had cost workers their pensions.

GST Steel was purchased by Bain Capital in the 1990s and went bankrupt in 2001. The plant’s workers were fired and lost their jobs and benefits.

Romney’s campaign has said the presumptive nominee was not involved in the decision to close the plant and had left Bain to manage the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.

The Lies You’re Been Told

by Bob Livingston

The elites are masters of propaganda. They have at their beck and call an army of “journalists” who never stray from the official state line for fear of being ostracized. They eagerly and happily spread lies and half-truths in order to gain and then keep their seats near the halls of power. Those who stray from the party line (Helen Thomas) are harshly dealt with.
They have learned that the more lies they tell, the more lies we believe. And the more lies we believe, the more dependent we become. Conversely, the fewer myths, lies and deceptions we succumb to, the less dependent — and, therefore, the freer — we are.

Propaganda is the science of persuasion and mind control. Its purpose is to forge allegiance to a political order or to ensure acceptance — and, therefore, consumption — of a particular product whether it is needed or beneficial. Propaganda victimizes the public by changing and controlling its belief system to the benefit of the political establishment or for the monetary gain of corporate interests and the medical establishment.

I have learned the power of propaganda. I have watched as otherwise intelligent and thoughtful people have had their minds manipulated so that they acted against their own best interests as a result of propaganda. It seems that organized and sophisticated propaganda is able to operate above the threshold of intelligence. In other words, without some imperative to trigger inquiry, very intelligent people buy into lies and myths the same as the general population. The lies and myths then become conventional wisdom. The human mind rarely accepts a challenge to conventional wisdom.

When confronted with a challenge to the established belief system, the mind closes off. When this happens, the individual employs avoidance behavior, writes off the new knowledge as conspiracy theory and labels it as kooky, insane or stupid. The information is then dismissed, never to be considered again, even when the facts support the new knowledge.

The esoteric purpose of propaganda is to extract wealth and labor illegally as concealed involuntary servitude. The people who use propaganda to persuade the populace against their best interests create myths and sell them as benefits.

Here, I break down some of the lies.

Lie: The War on Terror. The so-called War on Terror is actually a war on the American people. If al-Qaida is our enemy, as we’re told, why did we provide it aid and cover in Libya and why are we providing it aid in Syria? If its mastermind Osama bin Laden — who was never charged in connection to 9/11 — is dead, why are we constantly hearing new rumors of supposed terror plots? The FBI is supposedly keeping us safe from terrorists, yet it is setting up patsies, planning and giving them the means to carry out terror attacks so that it can swoop in and save the day. All of the recently uncovered “terrorist plots” in America are FBI creations. The original underwear bomber was under CIA surveillance and assisted onto the plane by a CIA asset. The latest underwear bomber was a CIA double agent. The so-called War on Terror was fabricated to benefit the military-industrial complex and the vast security apparatus that was bound to develop following the 9/11 attacks and the passage of the liberty-stealing USA Patriot Act. We still do not know the whole story behind the 9/11 attacks. Even the 9/11 Commission admits this and blames stonewalling, lying and cover-up by people in government.

Lie: The West is in peril from Islamofascism: Like the War on Terror and so-called attempted terrors
attacks in the United States, the threat of Islamofascism is a creation of the shadowy intelligence networks of the United States, Great Britain and Israel, which have provided funding and training for terror networks. This is outgrowth of government’s propensity to create a problem so that the populace will clamor for relief. Government can then demand and receive additional funding and establish additional control in order to address the problem it created.

Lie: President Barack Obama killed Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden is a bogeyman who gets pulled out of a drawer whenever the political winds blow the wrong direction. George W. Bush did this first, and then Obama. Bin Laden was long dead and his flesh rotted away when Obama sent Seal Team 6 into Pakistan. He is but one in a line of terrorists who are killed and revived when needed.

Lie: Iran is a direct threat to the United States and Israel: Officials in government and at the U.N. have repeatedly admitted that Iran is not developing a nuclear weapon. Iran is a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, and inspectors from the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency are permanently stationed in Iran to monitor its nuclear program. Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad never called for Israel to be wiped off the map. Israel has nuclear weapons and would respond with overwhelming force if Iran tried to attack. Iran does not possess a missile capable of reaching the United States. Yet the drumbeat goes on from the neocon stooges like Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman as well as from the talking heads on TV (see the first paragraph for explanation).

Lie: America is a democracy. Constitutional republican government passed away with the election of the tyrant Abraham Lincoln. Stealth, gradualism and propaganda caused the populace to accept that America is a democracy. Democracy is a euphemism for fascism. American democracy has the trappings of representative government but is fascism in reality. Call it benevolent totalitarianism. Banksters and corporate interests control the President and Congress and, therefore, control the workings of government.

Lie: The Federal Reserve controls inflation. The Federal Reserve is the world engine of inflation. Since the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913, the purchasing power of the dollar has almost been destroyed. During the 100 years prior to the Federal Reserve, there was gold-backed currency that kept its purchasing power. The people would not have accepted a central bank, but the elites used propaganda to convince the populace the Federal Reserve was not a central bank and that the banksters opposed it. It was the first great lie of the 20th century.

Lie: The economy is improving. Despite what the Obamaphile mainstream media report, there is no measure by which the economy is showing a rebound. While the “official” unemployment rate dropped from 8.2 percent to 8.1 percent, real unemployment climbed from 22.2 percent to 22.3 percent. More than 46 million people remain on food stamps. Housing prices continue to drop. Inflation is much greater than reported. Food stamps and social welfare programs are the only things holding off revolution like the Arab Spring in Tunisia and Bahrain. (Most other supposed Arab Spring uprisings were instigated by agent provocateurs in order to depose puppet leaders who had outlived their usefulness or depose leaders who would not be U.S. puppets.)

Lie: Your Congressman is working on your behalf. The elites in Congress and the bureaucrats who do their work are employees of the government and their loyalty is to the government and their bankster and corporatist masters.

Lie: There is a difference between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The two parties exist to provide a false paradigm to keep Americans divided. Their goal is to accumulate power and maintain a majority so their selected benefactors can be adequately rewarded from the Federal treasury.

Lie: The American healthcare system is the best in the world. Healthcare in America exists as a drug cartel to further enrich the already super-rich pharmaceutical companies. It is a tremendous burden on the backs of the people. Medical practitioners are, for the most part, completely brainwashed. Healthcare would be more accurately termed symptomology as what passes for healthcare is the treatment of symptoms, not disease. Organized medicine is now the third-leading cause of death. American healthcare is a Malthusian dream to reduce the population under the pretense of doctoring for sickness and disease.

Lie: American obesity means people eat too much and exercise too little. Americans eat too much processed and acidic foods and consume too much high fructose corn syrup. Americans suffer from full-belly starvation. The American diet is high in calories and very low in nutrition. This is a diet that builds an obese and sick population and leads to early death. The American diet is acidic, and acidification of the body brings death. A vegetarian diet is alkaline and it is the diet for health and longevity. Disease thrives on acidity. Death is full-body acid saturation. Unfortunately, eating a healthy vegetarian diet is becoming difficult thanks to machinations of Monsanto, Bayer and others who are creating genetically modified organisms and calling it food and saturating the ground with harmful pesticides and defoliants like Agent Orange, actions I term government-sponsored agricultural terrorism. And unless you are incredibly discerning in your selection of meats, you are consuming antibiotics and steroids that are creating havoc in your body.

Lie: Euthanasia is a quick and painless death. Euthanasia can happen over many years as drugs, and “immunizations” often kill slowly. The system can reduce the population without blame if it’s done over time so as to separate cause and effect. People don’t need drugs or doctors. Sick people, especially, don’t need drugs or doctors. They need nutrition.

Lie: Income taxes fund the government. The income tax system is a cover operation for the regulation of the regime of paper money. It facilitates efforts to maintain dossiers on citizens and transfer wealth. Ask yourself this: If the government can and does create (print) all the money it needs, why does it need taxes?

Lie: Savings and retirement. The money creators cause inflation to melt your savings and retirement while you sleep. CDs and bank accounts do not preserve you savings, especially in recent years with the Fed’s artificially low interest rates. The dollar is inflation. It is set to self-destruct. This is theft by deception. The true meaning of currency destruction with inflation is war upon the people. Then there are individual retirement accounts and 401(k)s. Congress set up the tax code to encourage investment in these scams in order to prop up the stock market and give the illusion of a robust economy. It created penalties that discouraged you from accessing your money, giving little choice but to watch as your nest egg lost more than half its value in the 2008 crash. Rather than help the now-destitute people, Congress rewarded the banksters who created the problem. Now there are discussions under way for the government to confiscate the billions of dollars in those accounts and replace it with another government sponsored Ponzi scheme.

Lie: A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama. The elites in both parties and the bureaucrats in the Washington, D.C., cesspool are terrified of Ron Paul and are doing all they can to defeat him. There is a full-on media blackout of his candidacy. On the rare occasion Paul’s name is mentioned it is followed by the caveat, “He can’t win.” The Republican establishment operates for sole purpose of pleasing the Israel lobby, the banksters, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the military industrial complex. Paul is hated by them because he has openly stated he wants to eliminate alphabet soup government agencies that provide a revolving door between government and industry and cut off their gravy train: perpetual war. The banksters hate him because he wants to cut off their gravy train: the Federal Reserve and its endless money printing. So the Republican voter is propagandized into believing that he should abandon his principals and vote for a candidate he does not like or agree with on many points. The American voter has forgotten that it is the candidate’s job to provide a platform and record acceptable to the majority of the voting population. It is the voter’s job to accept or reject the candidate based on that record and platform. Anything less is a sellout of principals. A vote for either Mitt Romney or Obama is a vote for continued and reinforced fascism.
