2015 as a “Year of the Big Lie”

From economist Thomas Sowell:

More than anything else, 2015 has been the year of the big lie. There have been lies in other years, and some of them pretty big, but even so 2015 has set new highs — or new lows.

This is the year when we learned, from Hillary Clinton’s own e-mails, after three long years of stalling, stone-walling and evasions, that Secretary of State Clinton lied, and so did President Barack Obama and others under him, when they all told us in 2012 that the terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed the American ambassador and three other Americans was not a terrorist attack, but a protest demonstration that got out of hand.

“What difference, at this point, does it make?” as Mrs. Clinton later melodramatically cried out, at a Congressional committee hearing investigating that episode.More.

Reality check: No difference at all, actually. Mrs. Clinton is right. Who was asking legacy media to pursue such grievous and policy-critical accusations and get at the truth? Crickets.

Who needs to know if the government EBT downloads of cash date is changed? Networks may collapse.

Watergate’s Woodward and Bernstein may as well have never existed. They add to the hype when there is little hope. Inadvertently sustain lies when people need facts. Enable some to live in dangerous fantasies.

        Sounds wonderfully Orwellian dunnit?
        Last week you had a four ounce chocolate ration.
        And this week you are getting more.
        We are giving you a two ounce ration.

          I was thinking that if they pushed back the EBT payout date 3 days extra each month the system would save one payment a year. So huge benefit for those of us still paying taxes. Now it would also mean that the widening gap between the 1st of each month and the pay out day would be a good time to avoid cities.

            Electronic welfare is the switch they can use to burn the place down.
            Turn it off and the world will explode.

            When they shut it off most cities will explode and that will be a great time to be nowhere near them.
