The Ubiquity of Lies

The Clintons: The liars who came in the cold of 2016.

I can’t
think of a better way to open a column on the ubiquity of lies in politics
today than by quoting Melanie Phillips from her Jerusalem Post article of
October 27th “As
I See It:  Palestinians step up the jihad
of the lie”
:

Of all the
disturbing issues of our time, the most fundamental is the collapse of the
distinction between truth and lies.

When post-modern society decided that the notion of objective truth was bunk
and so everything was relative, it also destroyed the idea of a lie. If there’s
no such thing as truth, there can be no such thing as a lie. Everything becomes
merely a matter of opinion.

Melanie
Phillips is a prolific British writer, author of many notable and controversial
titles such as Londonistan,
All
Must have Prizes
, and The
World Turned Upside Down
.
So, it wasn’t just the
concept of truth that was attacked or suborned, it was also concept of
falsehood that was also banished from objectivity. If a statement is a lie, how
would one know it if one’s cognitive faculties were sabotaged, if reason and
logic were committed to the dustbin?  Reason,
logic, and objectivity have already been carted away by the Marxist dustmen in
academia, leaving hapless students and taxpayers and mortgaged-to-the-hilt
parents with the multi-fortune tab. It explains the state of the culture and
the pathetic state of students.
A noteworthy example of how
to lie is the British government’s decision to conceal the true ages of Calais
“Jungle” children from the public by erecting a screen to shield the true ages
of the “children.” The Daily Star of October
23rd
reported:
But the new arrivals were shielded from view with a 15ft
fence around the entrance to Lunar House in Croydon, south London.
The screen is an extra security measure after widespread
speculation about the ages of last week’s all-male intake.
The fence was installed on Friday and was extended by
workers from a local scaffolding company yesterday.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said: “This fence is obviously there
to stop the public from seeing these so-called child refugees.
“The public thought they were going to see unaccompanied
infants being led to safety but what we have seen, it appears, is predominantly
young men.”
The Home Office said the fence was for “safeguarding
reasons” to protect the “vulnerable children”.
Earlier
this week a foster mum revealed her horror at discovering her 12-year-old adopted refugee was actually a suspected jihadi in
his 20s
And what of the children of
Britons, “vulnerable” to the sexual appetites of migrants? No consideration
need be made. The children of these Britons are obviously the offspring of
racist Islamophobes who denigrate the culturally enriching primitive habits and
savage peccadillos of the migrants.
But the average American
“deplorable” and “irredeemable” kept his fealty to logic,reason and
objectivity, and gave Donald Trump and themselves an unprecedented victory over
their lying,
Three-Card Monte
political gamesters. Not only is anyone able to judge the
migrants without being labeled racist and a speaker of “hate speech,” he is not
supposed to be able to  make a judgment,
that is, not be able to  tell the difference
between the truth about a Jungle migrant or a lie about him.
Simon Black of Sovereign
Man
wrote about Tuesday’s political earthquake:
I
thought the late-night quickie from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta
summed it up perfectly.

While Hillary stayed in her $20,000/night suite at the Peninsula Hotel, Podesta
was sent to tell the crowd of Clinton supporters that “She is not done yet!”

Nonsense. It was a big fat lie. Minutes later she called Donald Trump to
concede the election.

Anyone trying to understand why she lost might take note of this deceit– even
at the bitter end. She lied to her own supporters.

I made this assessment to
private correspondents this morning after the rush of victory had subsided:
It’s educational, in a way. George Soros’s millions and all
his little super-funded Open Society subdivisions, CAIR, all the arrogant
slime-bag secretive operatives (exposed by O’Keefe and Veritas) working to
engineer the Pantsuit’s victory, the governor of Virginia giving thousands of
felons the vote, the rigged polls in many states at the instigation of the DNC,
the DNC itself, the RINO defections to the Pantsuit, the tirelessly duplicitous
efforts of her campaign staff to cover up everything from her health to her
secret server and the tens of thousands of emails, and, finally,  let us not forget Barack Obama  — all the
things these creatures thought would make a difference, didn’t. They’ve been rebuked
and humiliated
and sent to the cleaners. There’s still spine and pistol in
enough Americans to make their own difference. Let’s hope that Trump is wise
enough to mine their best qualities.
On the subject of lies and
libelous and slanderous fabrications, Julian Assange,
permanently imprisoned as a guest of the Ecuadorian
embassy
in London said:
“The Clinton campaign, when they were not spreading obvious
untruths, pointed to unnamed sources or to speculative and vague statements
from the intelligence community to suggest a nefarious allegiance with Russia.
The campaign was unable to invoke evidence about our publications—because none
exists,” he wrote.
He suggested the attempts to smear Wikileaks came from
humiliation over what was released.
“In the end, those who have attempted to malign our
groundbreaking work over the past four months seek to inhibit public
understanding perhaps because it is embarrassing to them – a reason for
censorship the First Amendment cannot tolerate,” he wrote.
In the meantime, President
Barack Obama
today, November 9th, glossed over the many crimes of Hillary
Clinton, as though they occurred In some alternate universe and had nothing to
do with reality.
I
also had a chance last night to speak with Secretary Clinton, and I just had a
chance to hear her remarks. I could not be prouder of her. She has lived an
extraordinary life of public service. She was a great First Lady. She was an outstanding
senator for the state of New York. And she could not have been a better
Secretary of State. I’m proud of her. A lot of Americans look up to her. Her
candidacy and nomination was historic and sends a message to our daughters all
across the country that they can achieve at the highest levels of politics. And
I am absolutely confident that she and President Clinton will continue to do
great work for people here in the United States and all around the world.
“She was a great First Lady. She was an outstanding
senator for the state of New York. And she could not have been a better
Secretary of State.” As First Lady, Hillary was a grasping, power-seeking
entity who pushed for her version of Obamacare. As “outstanding senator” she
voted as a will-o-the -wisp. As Secretary of State she was a disastrous poodle
of Obama’s own disastrous policies. Groucho Marx could have been a better
Secretary of State.
He had to say something, following the public rebuke
of his policies in the person of Hillary Clinton, even if it was a lie. Clinton
had always been Obama’s “straw man.” If things went wrong – and they often did –
Obama wouldn’t be held responsible. But that’s all over now.
“She has lived an extraordinary life of public
service.”  Since my teenage years, I’ve
been amused by the term “public service.” In politics it can mean little but self-service, of personal enrichment, at
taxpayer and public expense, of dandified looting.  Hillary
Clinton from her Wellesley days to
the present has been a busy, parasitical, scheming worm of self-service.
And if she serves herself, she is naturally sacrificing you.

In the realm of the make-believe, there is no “cognitive
dissonance” between truth and falsehood. There is no conflict between them because
the one is as good as the other, and, in fact, neither of them is supposed to exist
to a mind so thoroughly corrupted, emasculated, and divorced from truth, logic,
and reason, a mind like Clinton’s and Obama’s. Clinton will not accept the
truth of her ignominious defeat, but blame some other person, or group, or another
conspiracy, or perhaps the juxtaposition of Mars, Saturn, and Pluto.

Hillary Clinton was a jihadist of lies. I can’t count
them all.

    I neglected to mention the lies perpetrated by the German and Swedish governments about the ubiquity of "Migrant" crimes in their countries, from rapes, to robberies, to murders, to "honor killings." The lies are in the form of the suppression of those crimes to assure Germans and Swedes that things aren't as bad as haven't been reported. And there hasn't been another form of lie not reported by the authorities: the punishment of Swedes and Germans for voicing their concerns and outrage about the ubiquity of "Refugee" depredations, and the evictions of real Swedes and Germans from their homes, hotels, and nursing homes to make way for "Muslims" who haven't been house-trained in any civilized sense.
