Liar Liar Pants on Fire

245px-Bundesarchiv_Bild_183-S72707,_Heinrich_HimmlerWe are living in a society where truth and justice are no longer the hallmarks of America. It’s more like lies and corruption.

Those advocating for the United States to become more like other countries can declare victory. When our president has the audacity to lie to his country AND THE PRESS QUIBBLES WHETHER ITS A LIE OR NOT we’re in big trouble.The mendacity and collusion of the press cannot be underestimated.

This administration could not have transformed this country into something unrecognizable without a compliant media.

My husband calls the mainstream media “the epoxy” I’m a Jewish girl so I, of course, know nothing about what he’s talking about. He patiently explained to me that epoxy works because of the chemistry of the resin and the hardener. The way he sees it, Obama and his minions (the resin) tell the media (the hardener) whatever they want in order to get public support for whatever they need. Just like the hardener works together with the resin to form a bond so do the media and the administration. The administration couldn’t get away with all the scandals, lies, and corruption without the media backing them up.
I listened to Jackie Mason’s excellent riff about our Liar in Chief president. Comedy isn’t funny unless it’s based in truth and what he said couldn’t be said any better. If this man weren’t president he would either be in jail or in a mental institution. Maybe it’s time to take those humorous words seriously. Otherwise we are headed for an America that resembles the totalitarian nightmare of Orwell’s classic 1984.

In that visionary work we find our protagonist works for The Ministry of Truth in a department that changes newspapers and magazines so that all articles and headlines match the new pronouncement, declaration, or legality that the government orders. The slogan of the Ministry was “Whoever controls the past controls the present…” How is that any different from our media accepting the lies from our esteemed officials about Fast and Furious, the Arab Spring, Benghazi, Seal Team Six, the IRS and on and on? Now our epoxy media wants us to believe that our Liar– Commander-in Chief “misspoke” and of course we, the unwashed masses, just didn’t understand because it’s our “right” to pay more or lose our healthcare so that illegal immigrants can enjoy the freedom of this country. By the way epoxy media, here’s another quote from George Orwell. ” If you want a vision of the future, picture a bootjack stomping on a human face-forever.” But as the compassionate and wise Hillary once said, ” What difference, at this point, does it make?”
