Liberals Wake Up! You’re Being Lied to Because They Think You’re Stupid

Outright lies by progressive politicians and their media sycophants should insult the intelligence every American. When they say things that contradict facts, logic, and common sense, and then expect you to believe them that can only mean they think you’re stupid. That insults me, and if you have two or more brain cells to rub together it should insult you too. Sadly, they get away with it far too often with far too many of our fellow citizens. There is a centuries-old saying that sums this up. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

Almost as bad as the lying politicians and the media spin masters who lie to us repeatedly are those “useful idiots” liberals who go along with the lies. These Americans have guzzled the progressive Kool-Aid and undermine the rest of us. I have liberal friends and relatives who believe that President Trump is an evil, corrupt, Russian puppet! Based on what? Lies! Sure, part of the problem is the lack of a fair, unbiased media. If all you ever hear supports one side and demonizes the other it is an impediment to an informed decision. But there are other sources of information. Talk radio and Fox News might give these liberal lemmings something to think about if they’d only listen, but when they are happy living in ignorance they don’t bother. They never question what they hear. It should be their duty as the American electorate to judge each side’s claims. Use facts, logic, and common sense.

Don’t get me wrong. Republican politicians and President Trump himself are often less than totally honest. The Democrats, and their supporters in the mainstream media, however, have dishonesty down to an art form. From, “I did not have sex with that woman,” to “If you like your plan you can keep your plan,” to “Trump is a Russian agent,” their lies rise to a whole new level of deceitfulness.

So why not use evidence. Take the latest uproar about President Trump’s phone call to Ukraine for example. On the one hand, you have Adam Schiff’s “parody” entered into the Congressional Record. In it, he claimed the essence of the call was Trump saying. “I have a favor I want from you though. And I’m going to say this only seven times, so you better listen good, I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand, lots of it, on this and on that.” Only that isn’t what the President actually said. In the released transcript of the call, Trump said, “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike…and I would like you to ·get to the bottom of it? The only time Biden was mentioned by name was when the President said, “The other thing, there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me. Crowdstrike refers to the hacking of the DNC server during the 2016 election. It was not about making up lots of dirt on Biden. Trump asked the Ukrainian President to work with our Attorney General about possible corruption.  That isn’t making up dirt.

Now, as to the Biden corruption charge, let’s use some common sense. We know that Joe Biden’s son was given a seat of the board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, for at least $50,000 a month. Biden’s son, Hunter, doesn’t have any background in oil and natural gas.

What does common sense say? Something’s fishy. What do the media say? They say these are unsubstantiated charges. Now, remember this is the same media that had no problem with Hillary Clinton deleting 30,000 emails that were under subpoena. What happened to liberal common sense.

As an American, I don’t deserve to be lied to by politicians. I don’t deserve to be lied to by what are supposed to be our media watchdogs. When I am, I truly resent how stupid they must think I am to peddle such ridiculous lies. And it’s not just about politics. Take climate change for one egregious example. To conclude man is causing the change is extremely unlikely at best and in all likeliness preposterous. Again, use facts, logic, and common sense. Yes, climate changes. It always has even before there were people on the earth. The last great Ice Age ended before there were enough people on earth to have a carbon footprint. So-called climate experts have been wrong about just about every climate prediction they’ve made, going back to the new Ice Age predictions in the ’70s. “Settled science” claim the Democrats and mainstream media without explaining climate change man couldn’t have caused and predictions that are universally wrong.  Science is gathering information to draw a conclusion, not looking for facts to support one.

In closing, how can you believe those whose record of deceitfulness is so well documented? How can you believe claims that ignore facts, logic and common sense? It’s one thing to be ignorant. It’s entirely something else to be willfully ignorant.

  1. I am impressed that you took the time to read something you disagree with as you seem to have done. I did say that Trump and many Republicans are “often less than totally honest.” It bothers me. And when the media catches him in an obvious untruth, like the inauguration size they should call him out on it. And are you sure you want to lump Obama and wiretaps in the list of Trump lies? It seems he and his whole campaign were under surveillance. Anyway, my point is that the major media is lying about be an objective source of news. Climate change is a great example. I’d ask you how many organizations have be paid to provide “facts” and “truth” supporting climate change. FYI – when the predictions have been wrong for decades you have to willfully ignoring the obvious. So tell me how climate changed before there were people on the earth? And where does it say doubting climate change is manmade means you are for extreme pollution? The major media never discusses these possibilities as an objective news source would do.
    As Biden’s son. Seriously? You see nothing dubious in that whole situation? Trump and his adult children made money outside of politics. The Biden’s, Clinton’s, Obama’s got rich while in politics. Compare the mainstream media coverage of Trump’s phone call. (Have you read the transcript?) to what Biden bragged about on tape?
    You certainly have more than two brain cells, sure, but if you truly don’t see the media bias you aren’t using the vast majority of them.
    Lenin had a term for people like you. And you have a lot of company, Clinton did win the popular vote, after all.
    In closing, try listening to alternate sources of information and compare what you hear from your normal sources. I listen to CNN and other liberal outlets every day and that’s the reason I’m certain they are lying to the public, outright, by omission, and through their selection of topics and guests.

  2. This article is biased. It’s funny how the author forgets that Trump has lied over 13,000 times. How does the media who take the actual video of what he says, uses it in their news is somehow considered dishonesty an art form? Obama and his wiretaps, his father born in Germany, the US and the highest taxes, shall I proceed? OK… his administration has done more in two years than most in the history of the US (luckily the UN applauded and not laughed – oh wait), the biggest turnout for his inauguration, boy this is too easy! As far as climate change is concerned, how many organizations have paid to undermine the “facts” and “truth”. It appears the author doesn’t know about science. Extreme pollution is healthy for us as humans? Why are children seeing an increase in cancer? Why are there plastics in everything we eat? No, no validity behind that.
    Trump is not deceitful? Nor is his cabinet? Why do they all keep stepping down when corruption charges are aimed at them? People quit because they don’t want to be involved in it. If they were innocent, wouldn’t they stay and fight the fight? It’s also amazing how the spotlight is pointed at Biden’s son. What about his kids and Kushner? What qualifies for their positions? Nepotism? No, c’mon, that’s insane…! I guess the mainstream media has lied about that too, even though it is public record.
    I am hoping my two brain cells work (even though medically, it takes the billions we have to function normally), but then again I guess I am one of those willfully ignorant people.
