Four years ago on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh talked about the left’s “universe of lies.”
There are two worlds. We live in two universes. One universe is a lie. One universe is an entire lie. Everything run, dominated, and controlled by the left here and around the world is a lie. The other universe is where we are, and that’s where reality reigns supreme and we deal with it.
He called the president and first lady, the king and queen of the universe of lies.
I was just watching an unbelievable sight. President and Mrs. Obama on the balcony of their hotel room in Oslo, it’s nighttime over there, and there is a torchlight parade reception, and the street is just filled, it’s teeming with people, with their candles and torches, with the Obamas standing high above and looking down upon them, President Obama in his tuxedo, and I kid you not, Michelle (My Belle) looked like she was dressed in a way to make people think she was royalty, a queen. Make no mistake about it, it was on purpose. But the reason I’m glad it happened, cause, you know, Snerdley is saying, “Gosh, they just have to be eating this up, they just have to love this, they think of themselves as royalty.” That’s right. Let ‘em think of that. Let them stay so out of touch with how they are perceived by people in this country. Let ‘em go over there, get all these accolades and let them continue to live in the Universe of Lies. I think it’s much better than if he went over there and got booed out of the place. Give that another year and that will happen. This is good. This is good that it happened because it allows them to continue to live this delusion that they are special, unlike any others who have come before them.
Without firing a shot the left has seized the press, they have taken control of the banks, they’re about to take control of the insurance companies and wipe them out, much of the auto industry, the left is now setting a salary scale for people. They’ve taken over our currency, and they’re preparing to seize health care. We’re being occupied by the left.
And of course, it is all being done with the media’s assistance. It couldn’t have been done without a left-wing media, pop culture and academia helping with the non stop propaganda.
The list of lies is almost endless.
The New York Times reporter in the Soviet Union, Walter Duranty, denied that there was a famine in the Ukraine in 1931-32 — the Communist-induced famine that killed about five million Ukrainians. And he won a Pulitzer Prize for it.
The media portrayed the Kennedy assassination as the product of Dallas’s “right-wing” “climate of hate” — even though a card-carrying Communist committed the assassination.
The media told us over and over about a heterosexual AIDS “epidemic” in the U.S. There was none. The media fabricated the heterosexual epidemic in order to remove stigma from gay males and in order to garner support for more AIDS research money.
Why all this mendacity?
There are truth tellers and there are liars on the right and on the left. But for the left, truth is subordinated to whatever it is the left most cares about: gay rights, minority rights, women’s rights, government health care and environmentalism being only the most obvious current examples.
That’s why talk radio, conservative websites, Fox News and conservative opinion pages, such as those of the Wall Street Journal and Investors Business Daily, are so important.
We are able to mitigate some of the damage the left does to the world of reality through conservative media outlets – but make no mistake – we are all now stuck in the left’s universe of lies.
That’s why Obama has been able to get away with lying about his past. That’s how he got away with lying about ObamaCare, that’s how he got away with all his scandals and abuses of power.
And it’s how he got away with lying about his drunk-driving illegal immigrant “Uncle Omar” who he previously claimed not to know.
Ace says, “it would be one thing if he lived with him as a child. But he lived with him as an adult in law school.”
The White House claimed Obama had never so much as met the man. They claim, now, that their previous claim was a mistake or something, because they had “researched” the question and had not found any evidence the two had met.
Instead of just asking Obama. Which they now say just occurred to them to do. And they claim it just occurred to them to ask Obama after a witness with no reason to lie (Omar’s landlord) came forward to say that Obama had lived with Omar.
President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.
Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation.
On Thursday, a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Globe that they had no record of the two meeting. This time, the press office asked the president directly, which they had not done in 2011.
But what else would you expect from the King of “the Liar’s Club”?:
He has lied from the start of his political life, which began not that long ago. For instance when he informed an audience of teachers in July 2008 on the campaign trail “I’ve written two books…I actually wrote them myself.” It was a lie. He has never written an eloquent line in his life, and those two books were professionally written. He speaks with the assistance of Teleprompters. His rhetoric is formulaic. At best, he counseled with a couple of ghostwriters to write the books that bear his name. At worst one was Bill Ayers, once a member of Students for a Democratic Society turned terrorist and then turned “educator” at the University of Illinois’s Chicago campus. If he were a right-winger he would probably still be in jail.
Writers from as varied backgrounds as Jack Cashill, the conservative journalist, to Obama’s popular biographer, Christopher Andersen, author of Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, have adduced evidence refuting Obama’s claim to authorship of his books. Last week Investor’s Business Daily cast still more doubt on Obama’s claim to have “written two books.” Now Ayers is speaking up suggestively, as he has a book out, which it is not selling all that well. Enticingly, he suggests that he is the real author of President Obama’s first book, Dreams from My Father.
Frankly I would have advised Our President to come clean about his bogus authorship years ago. Ayers is a decidedly shifty fellow and his wife, the former SDSer, Bernardine Dohrn, is worse. They were always spoiled university-bred radicals always expecting the Republic to fall for their Marxist mumbo jumbo. Yet America has never been very hospitable to the disciples of Papa Marx, much less when those disciples have pipe bombs in their hands.
Now, Roger Simon of PJ Media is taking a second look at some the other “conspiracy theories” that have plagued Obama since he first ran for office, and wonders, “what if it’s all true?”
…in the wake of the serial lies about Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS, Fast and Furious, media surveillance, the NSA, Syria, Iran, etc., etc., I’m now prepared to believe many things of which I might initially have been at least somewhat skeptical.
To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me.
Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal he received financial preferences, scholarships and/or loans, as a foreign student. They probably also reveal academic mediocrity, but that’s par for the course for many of our politicians (except it becomes embarrassing in Obama’s case where he has the reputation of being brilliant).
But that’s only one area of accusation. What if they were all true — or, if not all, say thirty, forty or even fifty percent? What if this were actually demonstrated while he was still in office to the degree that the standard spin that all politician lie no longer applied? What if we could prove that it had gone well beyond that, beyond Nixon and Clinton far into the realm of an invented man? What would that mean, exactly? Should his opponents rejoice? Would a new era and truth, beauty and prosperity be upon us?
Not likely. Great damage has been done. Consider for a moment that whatever theories we have about Obama, whatever prevarications and deceptions of which we are aware or unaware, are known equally to our adversaries — the intelligence agencies of China, Russia and Iran. Even if they were too dumb to figure it out for themselves, which they’re not, they read our newspapers and blogs.
These totalitarian — or near totalitarian, depending on how you want to parse it — states depend on lies for their existence. In Obama they have found a partner in crime, a semblable, as Baudelaire would say. They are currently exploiting this. In all likelihood our world will never be the same. This is no cause for celebration by any American.
No. But then I’ve known that from day one. What about the rest of America? Are we sick of being lied to yet? Because whether they’re fudging on the enrollment numbers or the functionality of a glitchy insecure website no responsible entity would dream of directing consumers to, or Democrats doubling down on the “you can keep your plan” promise – it’s a non stop geyser of ObamaCare lies every single day.
Come this January, we may see some kingly “fixes” to this hot mess,
What will happen January 1 when thousands of people have car crashes or other need for insurance, but don’t have it, due to Obama’s incompetence and stubborness?
John Ekdahl suggested that Obama will just order hospitals and doctors to treat anyone who says he has insurance, whether he does or not. I believe Ekdahl’s term was that Obama will order everyone to be “deemed” as covered by insurance.
Is that inconceivable? I don’t think so. That’s what Allah’s thinking, too.
…and Republicans in Congress will be forced to go along with it because nobody wants to be responsible for people dying. King Obama reigns supreme in his universe of lies.
