Those on the left never tire of telling those of us who continue to support President Trump about how he is nothing more than the very worst kind of a liar. But it’s in so doing that they seem to forget entirely, or simply choose to remain blissfully ignorant of, the many lies told, and very purposely so, by he who was so very often referred to as being our Liar-in-Chief while he was in office, and just a common liar since leaving office. Let’s face it. It just isn’t that often that someone comes along who possesses the skill of our last president when it comes to being able to lie, and very convincingly, about just about anything and everything.
And it was as recently as this past Monday that we once again saw him in action as we were once again reminded of just how skillful a liar our ex-president, Obummer, truly is. Because it was while seeming to chase our current president across the country in preparation of the coming midterm elections, that our ex-president was heard to utter what may very well have been the single most pompous, patronizing, and pretentious lie ever heard from a politician, any politician, regardless of political party. And yet, he seems to remain convinced that he can say absolutely anything and be believed and that there is nothing that can be said which crosses the line.
And so, it was during a recent stopover in Nevada, the purpose of which, I guess, was to motivate Democrats, that Obummer said, “Here’s the good news, Nevada. Right now we have a chance to restore some sanity to our politics. Right now we can tip the balance of power to you, the American people. Because ultimately there is only one real check on abuses of power. There is only one real check on bad policy, and that is you and your vote. He said, “And you know, the great thing in Nevada, you do not have to wait two weeks. You can go ahead and vote right now. In Nevada, early voting is already underway. You can vote at any early voting site in your community.”
He added, “If you do not think it is important to vote, look at what the Republicans have done these past two years. Look at what they’re saying they’re going to do if you send it back for two more. Here is one simple fact—this is a fact.” And it was then that he made that remarkable, and blatantly false, claim, saying, “Unlike some, I try to state facts. I believe in facts. I believe in a fact-based reality and a fact-based politics. I don’t believe in just making stuff up.” This rather astonishing statement flies in the face of everything we know about our ex-president and his rather checkered history of being able to deal with the truth.
And I must say that perhaps the most remarkable thing about what it is that he said is the fact that he was able to get through his entire statement while being able to maintain a straight face. But then that’s really nothing new. And while I may feel it as being unnecessary to remind folks of Barry’s well-earned reputation as being one who routinely ‘stretches’ the truth, what follows are but a few of the more prominent examples of those times when Barry looked the American people dead in the eye, and then proceeded to lie to them in what was really nothing less than an attempt to wreak as much havoc as possible as he sold (and sells) his bill of goods to America:
- In what was rated as being the “Lie of the Year” by left-wing Politifact, Barry said, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” Politifact noted in 2013, “So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong. Boiling down the complicated health care law to a soundbite proved treacherous, even for its promoter-in-chief. Obama and his team made matters worse, suggesting they had been misunderstood all along.”
- It was earlier this year in speaking about his own administration that Obummer actually said: “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.” Oh, really? He seemed to have conveniently forgotten about the IRS scandal, the Benghazi scandal, the Fast and Furious Scandal, letting Hezbollah funnel cocaine into the United States, and secretly wiretapping AP reporters.
- Obummer asserted in 2013 vis-à-vis the Benghazi scandal, “The day after it happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism.” Nope, not quite. Obummer repeatedly described it as “an act of terror,” but never mentioned the word terrorism, possibly because he didn’t want to damage his 2012 campaign theme that the U.S. had terrorists beaten. In fact, the day after the attack in Benghazi, here was his exchange with Steve Kroft of CBS News in which he studiously avoided calling the Benghazi massacre an act of terrorism:
Kroft: “Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word ‘terrorism’ in connection with the Libya attack.”
Kroft: “Do you believe that this was a terrorist attack?”
Obummer: “Well, it’s too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.”
And it was eight days later that Obummer was asked this question at Univision town hall: “We have reports that the White House said today that the attacks in Libya were a terrorist attack. Do you have information indicating that it was Iran, or al-Qaeda was behind organizing the protests?”
Barry answered saying, “Well, we’re still doing an investigation, and there are going to be different circumstances in different countries. And so I don’t want to speak to something until we have all the information. What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests.”
And five days after that, on ABC’s “The View,” Obummer was asked, “It was reported that people just went crazy and wild because of this anti-Muslim movie — or anti-Muhammad, I guess, movie. But then I heard Hillary Clinton say that it was an act of terrorism. Is it? What do you say?” Obummer answered, “We are still doing an investigation. There is no doubt that the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn’t just a mob action. Now, we don’t have all the information yet so we are still gathering.” So yes, Barry believes in facts, all right. His facts.
I’m sure we all remember how Obummer blamed everything that went wrong, during his entire eight years in office, on Bush. And now we’re seeing him trying to take credit for everything that’s going right under President Trump. And he’s getting lots of help in that endeavor, from his many remaining allies in both the Democrat Party and the state-controlled media. I’m confident that there will come a day when Americans will look back and realize the greatest mistake we ever made was in electing Barry as president. And I feel just as confident that we will back at President Trump’s eight years in office as a turning point for this country.
