The Big Lie

A while back someone said, “It is the absolute right of the state to supervise the formation of public opinion.” This same official also said, “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”

We have seen evidence of the current regime attempting to put this advice into practice as they tried to to convince the. often gullible, American people that the attack on Ambassador Stevens and three others was simply a protest over some silly video that got out of hand… a “bump in the road” toward good relations with the Muslim Brotherhood.

While it was obvious to most anyone who gave it any thought that this explanation just did not pass the smell test, the formerly mainstream media attempted to give it credibility. Even though followers of Mohammed can be a little “different”, not many are seen carrying around RPGs and some of the other heavier weapons used in the attack, just as they wander about and get caught up in a spur of the moment protest. The evidence was overwhelming that it was a terrorist attack, but the Obama administration just kept looking the other way, refusing to recognize the reality of this tragedy. The President probably thought the truth was incompatible with his DNC victory dance. If al Qaida was still coming after US targets, perhaps the killing of Osama bin Laden did not have the impact he thought did.

UN Ambassador Susan Rice and Press Secretary Jay Carney, who has somehow acquired the nickname Carney the Clown – which is an insult to the original Carney the Clown who entertained those of us who grew up near Philly in the 50s and 60s – and many others were sent out on a disinformation mission. It has since been revealed that the reality of a terrorist attack was known within twenty four hours – yet the story of a demonstration over the video getting out of hand continued to be spun for days. In simple words, they lied!

If you haven’t guessed already, the quotes at the beginning came from Joseph Goebbels. For those too young to be familiar with the name, Goebbels was Adolf Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda. He is also quoted as saying, “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.”

We are dealing with an administration lives by this principle, the truth is the enemy of the state… or at least of the President. However… the lie fell apart. They enemy of the state reared its head as Fox News, and many others, broke the story about what really went on – and it wasn’t what we were told. It wasn’t long before we found out we were lied to. Then we have Tracy Schmaler, DOJ’s own spinmeister admitting that lies are just part of an administration.

Furthermore, Schmaler’s emails between her office and liberal hack Media Matters have been made public revealing her release of information and suggestions for research directions essentially show them to be just another public relations outfit for the government – a PR firm with a non-profit status.

In view of the recent failures of presidential deception in this issue and many others like Fast and Furious as well as ObamaKare, President Obama’s UN address included recognition that the idea of complete control of the news is “obsolete” as he lamented his inability to legally put a damper criticism of the “Prophet Mohammed”.

It is sad that we have come to the point where we cannot believe anything coming out of Washington… and many state capitols. We really do have people who believe the truth is the enemy of the state – their enemy. It is the lies that will enslave us, and only the truth that will set us free.
