4 lies you’re guaranteed to hear from liberals this election cycle

According to Webster’s dictionary, fiction consists of written stories about people and events that are not real, or literature that tells stories which are imagined by the writer. Occasionally, fiction — and often the best fiction — is based on real life events. AND often, fiction is a form of embellishment used to illustrate a point, build a personal story and persuade a population to action. Often, when caught, the author of personal embellishment will claim a bout of “mis-remembrance.” Another word for this type of “embellishment” in written or verbal form is the simple three-letter word known as a lie.

So, why do people lie? In the absence of a psychological problem, people lie to persuade, to achieve, and to attract. Small personal white lies might save feelings and friendships – such as telling your friend that the outfit, no matter how ill-conceived, is attractive — especially if worn all day by the time you see her/him might save feelings. Bigger lies occur when society tells “white lies” that affect members of a population and instead of being harmless, end up being quite harmful.

1. The “persuasive” lie is one in which a person or group decides to make things up or tell half-truths in order to persuade the audience to believe certain larger than life things about themselves.

For example, Hillary Clinton’s claim of being “dead broke” or racing across the battleground on foot without any body armor in Bosnia after her plane was brought down in a volley of enemy fire, or the claim that all of her grandparents were immigrants… in fact she even named one in particular, Hanna Jones Rodham, as being an immigrant who worked in a lace factory in order to make ends meet. Or maybe that was the immigrant grandfather who worked in the lace mill to make ends meet…. either way, it seems that grandmother Hanna was really born in Pennsylvania. Whatever the scenario, whether the politician paints a word picture by exaggerating experiences in order to identify with the common broke folk, illustrate the bravery of militarily untrained older women on the battlefield, or appear to be a member of the immigrant class, the goal here is to persuade the voter to identify and true or untrue, move them to the voting booth. Caution: this strategy only works for politicians. Doing this on a resume or as a news anchor (Brian Williams for example) might be dangerous to your career.

2. The “puffery” lie inflates reality. In 2012, Breitbart documented the facts surrounding Senator Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry and demonstrated that no credible evidence exists to support those claims. But lack of genealogical evidence has never stopped Senator Warren from boldly asserting as fact something which is flatly not true – why would it? Despite evidence to the contrary, Warren is determined to be a Cherokee Indian tribal member. In fact, for the “Pow Wow Chow Cookbook,” she produced recipes (along with other Native Americans) of favorite Cherokee Tribe dishes such as “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat” and “Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing.” These were touted as family traditions until they were found out to be copied from a 1979 New York Times News Service article by Pierre Franey. Perhaps the real reason for the Native American heritage would be the preferred consideration for a position at an Ivy League University eager to attain its first Native American female professor. This has been a successful achievement because, despite evidence to the contrary, the story remains intact.

3. The “attraction” lie adds sizzle to an otherwise overcooked steak. I have always told my girls that the truth is often dull, sometimes strange, but hardly ever as elaborate and gilded as a lie. Being “dead broke” means having an often dull or mundane existence centered around simply trying to make the day work or trying to keep your head above water. It does not involve international travel, shopping sprees or expensive dinners. Cherokee Indian recipes often contain corn meal, beans, side meat (pork), eggs (often frozen and preserved) and wild onions. Crab meat omelets with or without mayo are seldom on the menu. And the possibility of an untrained person dodging enemy fire after being shot from the sky over a Middle Eastern country is highly unlikely unless Captain America used his mighty shield.

4. The “mythological” lie helps to advance a narrative. It is very useful but can also be very detrimental to people and causes. For example, the “hand’s up don’t shoot” fantasy concocted a few short months ago that has brushed off its false mantle and become a flash point for riots, looting and plunder. Unfortunately this falsity will obscure legitimate complaints and issues.We found that to be true with the Rolling Stone piece on a rape that probably never occurred. What effect this will have on other legitimate claims of rape and rape victims will be determined in the future.

Will any exposed lies matter? To some but not to others, especially those who WANT to believe. Desperately want to believe.

A final thought:

“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.”

― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

The left lives off of lies. It’s like they like they like being lied to and really enjoy it. Hope, change, you can keep your doctor, the doctored birth certificate, the lost emails, the wiped server are just few. The liberals rather swallow the “blue” pill and wake in their beds than swallow the “red” pill and stay in Wonderland. I say let’s see how deep this rabbit hole goes! When it comes to lies, lie all you want, to me, the people, but never, ever lie to yourself. Here’s a novel idea- Be honest, have integrity and you won’t… Read more »

A lot of people fell for these too: This will be the most transparent administration in history. Lie! There will be a five day period before a bill is signed so the people can review it. Lie! “And that’s why I pledge that I will not sign health insurance reform, as badly as I think it’s necessary, I won’t sign it if I think that reform adds even one dime to our deficit over the next decade. And I mean what I say” Lie! “I continue to insist that health care will not be paid for on the backs of… Read more »

If you are looking for honesty and integrity, why are you following Allen West?

The cold hard truth of the matter is that Hillary Clinton does not stand a chance in hell of getting elected. I think she is a Trojan horse. The real threat is Elizabeth Warren, who will be the knight in turd armor that will come galloping across the horizon; proclaiming her run for president to save the liberal votes from crypt keeper Hilary. This guaranteed is what the plan is, to create hype around Elizabeth Warren so she stands a chance in hell of getting elected. She also has: – A much less visible record of her “achievements” than Hillary… Read more »

ryn aand, Let me throw out a likely scenario. The democrats that have not yet sold their souls know that the next POTUS will have such a mess on it’s hands and the Progressive Republicans have control of both houses of congress, the POTUS will be forfeited to the R’s by default. Even the most patriotic D ( I know it’s an oxymoron) will be thankful when the R’s cannot undo O’Bozos mess in 4 years and that will usher in a massive change and the D’s will capture everything in 2020 and America will be forever a Socialist Nation.… Read more »

Touche.

Well, that was before they discovered all of the electronic voting machines were curiously set up with administrator passwords like “123456” or “admin.” Voter fraud was a huge issue for the last election, if you are thinking on those lines; it really does not matter what liberal/socialist gets the nomination. They all will utilize their “free vote system” built on fraudulent electronic voting machines and dishonest hand counting methods. Why not hold the system accountable rather than complaining about how the system is rigged? Nobody in this country has the balls to do ANYTHING.

Un huh…sure….but no EVIDENCE of it!!

There has been PLENTY of evidence. You of course, are able to ignore, deny, and excuse it. Just from the tone of your last two posts I judge that you have a criminal streak. You express a delight for the outcome Earl Lee , so I deduce that you are happy for the sad state of affairs this country is in. There are a LOT more people waking up to the reality of Obamas motives and the damage he has done to this nation, and is DOING to this nation, and is PLANNING.

Warren is not running. Hilary has no declared opponent yet.

All that any GOP candidate needs to do if they want to become president with Hillary as their opponent: Hey Hillary, what really happened in Bengazi? She is a cooked goose. Next candidate please.

Rafael X

Romney tried to pull that one off ended up looking like a fool. But please let any of them take his best shot.

ryn aand

Romney looked like a fool because he was a moderate trying to play conservative. He did not satisfy the right wing base, and was not chosen due to this. Obama also won because he had the backing of some pretty nefarious yet wealthy individuals that do not have the United States core interests at heart. Even still, Romney performed better in the debates than the black version of Alfred E. Newmann.

Rafael X
Guest

Too bad he couldn’t perform as well on election day.

ryn aand
Guest

And since Alfred E. Newman has been re-elected, he has supported more out of control spending with no common sense budget in sight. He has also added more restrictive legislation to an already crowded system of law. There is also that concern about his election in general.. How many years after he is gone will we find out about how his office’s cabinet (eric holder for instance) were behind his 2nd election win. (as in, major voting fraud) I will be smiling and crying the same day this news becomes public knowledge.

ryn aand

Not running yet. You have to be silly not to expect she isn’t a Hillary understudy at least. She already is more electable on the platform that nobody really knows much about her. Everyone knows too much about Hillary, putting her up against the likes of Ted Cruz or Rand Paul would be like a virgin sacrifice. She will be outgunned at the debates, and already has a reputation for being shrill and thoroughly unlikable. Why is my concept so far fetched?

Rafael X
Guest

Ted Cruz does not seem that much more likeable. Rand Paul can’t behave long enough to give an interview to a female interviewer nothing says he will keep his composure in debates against a woman.

ryn aand
Guest

By the way, the media is blowing his “reaction” out of proportion to paint him as a vile woman basher. (Rand Paul) CNN doesn’t exactly play both sides, just by observation; I would directly assume they tend to protect and advocate for the left moreso than the right. I could very well lump MSNBC into this category.

ryn aand

I’m going to take a shot in the dark.. You are a liberal that is playing coy. You don’t have to hide that you are not a fan of any candidate; I wouldn’t be as bold as to dictate whether or not a certain conservative candidate will perform well in the primaries, and most certainly against the likes of trainwreck Hillary Clinton. Lets agree to disagree.

Earl Lee

And one truth you’ll here….ALLEN WEST is too afraid to run for president!

A lot of people are on the bash Hillary kick starting with the e-mails. Just a waste of time. The election is over eighteen months away. The American voters have short memories. All the things being talked about today will have been forgotten about by this time next year. Senator Shumer hit the nail on the head when the e-mail issue came up when he said: “None of this is going to matter to those who vote Democrat no matter what.” This is not going to matter to the freeloaders who vote for a living. This is not going to… Read more »

Metheold Master Sargent, you are probably correct. I keep hearing the meme that Americans are War Weary! 2% of Americans have actually participated in the “War” the other 98% are at WALmart. The use of the word war is an oxymoron. A war is where you send in the Military to Kick A$$ and break $hit. The “wars ?” since WWII has consisted of sending the 2% into harms way with one hand tied behind their back with blanks for ammunition. That is the “War” that I am sick of. Using our military as cannon fodder is a criminal act… Read more »
