For too many truth is unbearable to realize, as Derek Hunter points out in his article, Truth Is For Suckers.
Rolling Stone magazine made money by lying in a story entitled A Rape On Campus. The lie hurt people because a college fraternity and several of its members were named. The magazine was about a rape victim known only as Jackie. It turned out that Jackie is a really expert fabulist storyteller. Eric Wemple, Washington Post, stated that the story was a complete crock. The author of the article was Sabrina Erdely who as of this writing is still employed as a 'journalist'. Too bad she can't be treated as an unethical lawyer and be 'disbarred' from journalism. Maybe if the journalism society and its universities would develop such a system we would have more reliable news reporting and journalists who want to discover and reveal truth rather than suppress it.
Recently, the corrupt senator falsely claimed that Mitt Romney refused to show the American people his tax returns, possibly to justify his previous lie. Romney not only released his tax returns, but revealed publicly tax returns over a period of 20 years.
Of course, he claims that people took things out of context, despite the C-SPAN video depicting him spewing untruthfulness hatefulness on the senate floor. Rightly accused for holding up bills, he also denied that. He disgustingly supports Hillary Clinton, although he describes pretty close the nature of Jeb Bush, but GW Bush was not the worst president, Obama is. Not that GW Bush was a good president, he ignored the importance of the Fair Tax Act and created the domestic atmosphere for an economic meltdown - “fixed” by corporate welfare and using federal money to bailout big business that did not deserve it. He also signed the so-called Patriot Act. The Kochs are hated because they will not support the progressive climate change agenda. According to Tom Steyer at the progressive media Huffington Post …
The science on climate change has long been settled, and scientists agree that we must take urgent, aggressive action. The good news is that American businesses have the tools to solve these problems. We're the most innovative country in the world!
They are either naïve or sticking to their propaganda that government can change climate/weather fluctuations that has been natural for millions of years; but something can be done to prevent further air and water pollution. The hypocrisy of this attack on big business is that the Democrats accept donations from big money philanthropists, some of who are of the class they supposedly hate. A study showed that out of the list of billionaires, there were 22 individuals listed and 13 of them have donated to the Democratic Party. The most infamous being George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. California billionaire Tom Steyer, has given more than $11 million and has pledged to spend at least $50 million.
Frankly, I am sick of lies and cover ups no matter which political entity/individual it generates from. We the People need to pressure for better statesmanship and constitutionality; weeding out 'moderates' and voting for dedicated statesmen and stateswomen. It is truly up to US because we cannot rely on politicians seeking reformation on their own volition.
