The Lies We Contend With

When Andrew Yang announced he was leaving the Democrat party, I commented to him that nearly everything he believed was a lie, but also noting that huge amounts of what I used to believe were lies as well. That I now could see the whole system of lies, right and left, which have been used to keep we, the people compliant. Then someone asked me when did the lies start?

To be sure, there have been lies since the Garden. But I do believe what we’ve dealt with these past decades is unique in human history: a whole series of lies maintained at all costs by people who do know better. And while it grew out of a host of factors, I pinpoint the need for a system of lies to the Korean War, specifically to the Truman Administration decision to not seek victory.

We were all told – and we all believed – that when Truman fired MacArthur it was the right and brave thing to do. That MacArthur was off the ranch and threatened not merely a Third World War, but the very Constitutional structure of the United States. Like all good lies, this had a kernel of truth: as a military officer, MacArthur was bound to obey the orders of his civilian Commander in Chief. But that bit of truth was used to blind us to the fact that in a cold blooded and cruel manner, Truman and his Administration had decided that people would continue to die, with no hope of victory, until the Communists decided to end the killing. That was the issue. It always was the issue. And it isn’t even mentioned, for the most part. When it is, it is quickly passed over. No one wants to really consider this. Most of the people who died in the Korean War – Koreans, Chinese and Americans – died after Truman made his decision. They died fighting it out on an arbitrary line of no moral or strategic value. Truman did this. And then slept soundly at night. So did the Defense officials and the generals. The soldiers on the line slept less soundly. And they died. Truman’s decision wasn’t made to spare lives, but merely to sustain the decision he had made to enter the war when he had lost the will to win the war. He lied to the American people in order to save his political prospects.

Sound familiar?

When the Chinese intervened we had two morally acceptable courses open to us: fight it out to victory, or to capitulate. We chose the immoral path: keep fighting, but only to provide cover for a coward’s decision to neither win nor quit. Rely on it: they sized it up. They knew that with our absolute command of the sea and our aerial superiority that the Chinese could not force us all the way out of Korea. They could calculate: this many dead and wounded per month, this large a pool of draftees to send: presto, we could sustain the line indefinitely. All it would take is lots of people – mostly poorer people the leaders never met – dying. The Western Front is held up as the immoral waste of lives, but it wasn’t: as many mistakes as the Allies made, their goal was always total victory. The lives weren’t to be expended to no point. In Korea, they were to be expended pointlessly. And to do this, they had to lie. They had to tell us that if we went for victory, it would lead to WWIII as the Russians would go to war with us and we’d all be nuked. End of the world! If we don’t have Johnny from Akron and Li from Shanghai blow each other to bits over and over again, we’re all gonna die!!!!

Too bad for Johnny and Li: but, hey, at least 24 hour round the clock nuclear holocaust was avoided.

Flaw in the theory: Russia only exploded her first nuke in 1949 and the best they had for a strategic bombing was the TU-4, a reverse engineered B-29 which was incapable of reaching most of the United States from Soviet air bases. Even we didn’t have a real nuclear bomber until the introduction of the B-36 in 1948. Nuclear war as in total wipe of humanity simply wasn’t in the cards during any point of the Korean War. Additionally, there was very little chance that an aging Stalin would bring his country into another World War as Russia was still rebuilding from WWII (it would be the mid-60’s before Russia was fully recovered from the destruction of WWII).

In short, a cruel calculation was made to not win as that seemed more difficult and then a series of lies were generated to explain why we wouldn’t win but the dying would keep going. That, in my view, is when our government became a web of lies…and when all sides of the political spectrum (except a few put down as kooks) became wedded to the web of lies.

In the end, we built up a massive, national security State in service to this concept that at any moment now the Russians would nuke us and so we had to have a massive nuclear force on hair trigger alert, a gigantic Army ready to fight (but not win!) anywhere in the world and a whole bunch of what we were doing kept secret from the people, who were to be monitored and manipulated. By the 1960’s, in my view, the thing was feeding on itself. Just getting ever more crazy and using ever larger amounts of BS to justify itself. Because after a while, people were invested in it. Defense contractors, think tanks, universities, media companies: a whole host of individuals and institutions essentially made their living by sustaining the fiction that we can’t win a war, but we needed a massive military and secret police (FBI, CIA, NSA) to fend off defeat. Nobody was ever allowed to do two things which would cut to the chase:

Drive the Marxists out of America

Directly confront the USSR with a “war or quit” ultimatum.

We couldn’t do these things because they would solve the problem. Getting rid of the American Marxists would end the internal threat and challenging the Soviets to fight or back off would either get them to back off, or get them to fight (they would have backed off: the balance of forces all through the Cold War was overwhelmingly in our favor – they knew it, and so did we).

We had to pretend that having Che Guevara wanna-bees in our schools and bureaucracies was just the price of freedom. Even so-called Conservatives said we had no right to push such people out. We had to allow America to be flooded with a series of corrosive, anti-human Marxist ideologies which sapped our will and warped our sense of right and wrong. And we had to do this simply to sustain lies. In this case, the lie that if we didn’t let our enemies subvert us, our enemies would win. And still all based on the first lie: the Korea Lie – that we can’t win a stand up fight to simply end this once and for all.

Here in 2021, it is all self-sustained. We’re not even allowed to win a fight with rag tag Islamist militias. And we’re appointing Marxist economists to positions in our government.

Reject it all: reject all the lies. You don’t have to fund your enemies. You don’t have to sustain the National Security State. You don’t have to protect those who hate you and want you enslaved. You are sane. You want law and order, sound economics, your people come first: these are normal, sane attitudes and anything against them has to go down. Your laws are for you: for sanity. Not for them, the insane. The liars. The laws do not protect evil. They do not foster insanity. Anyone who says they do is lying to you. Ignore them and take what is yours by right: take back, that is, your citizenship in the Republic and insist that the Republic exist for you, not for those who hate you and lie to you and wish to plunder you.

      Oh this is easy. Time for knife control. Problem solved.

        And stabbed by a Somalian immigrant I will add. Remind me again why this country needs so many immigrants. It appears to me we can’t even take care of who is already here.

        I am devoutly hoping that newly-elected President Trump will immediately start to round up illegals in this country and fly them home. I’ll be happy to have taxpayers pay the plane fare, even pay for peanuts and generic sodas, but send them home.

        Starting with those Afghanis in Sparta, Wisconsin.

        Don’t forget bat control.

        A woman was arrested near the U.S. Capitol after she attacked officers with a baseball bat.

        She was also a biter—not sure how to regulate that.

        I believe this armed attack on the Capitol is the worst threat to democracy since the Civil War—as bad as Pearl Harbor, as bad as 9/11. This clearly calls for a Congressional investigation.

        Don’t forget arrow control. That guy in Norway took out five people with a bow and arrow. Not arrow-sniping, picking them off one at a time, but in a shopping mall.

        Maybe if every bow had to be registered, sold only after a universal background check, and every arrow was micro-lasered with the owner’s name we could start to control this carnage.

    When Andrew Yang announced he was leaving the Democrat party, I commented to him that nearly everything he believed was a lie,

    The thing is, I don’t know what a lot of these Dems really do believe. I would love to sit down with Yang, or Tulsi Gabbard, or Kyrsten Sinema and ask, very respectfully, why they are (or were) Democrats. I am genuinely curious about why some people who seem to project political philosophies that are not based on consolidation of power in the hands of a few, or stripping states of their power, or putting the federal government in charge of everything we say and do still identify as Democrats.

    A family took their kids to get flu shots. They say Walgreens mistakenly gave them adult doses of the COVID vaccine instead

    If this happened to me my first stop would be a lawyer’s office to file a lawsuit and the second the DA to file charges of assault. The friend who sent this to me used to work as a nurse and said they had to double check every single dose of every single medication. When I go to the doctor I have to give my birthdate to every single person with whom I interact and agree that I want whatever is given to me.

      The first condition for medical experiments on human beings as laid out in the Nuremberg Code of 1947 is this: Read it carefully and determine for yourself if the government forcing people to take what is (in spite of what we are told) still an experimental drug is in compliance with this rule. emphasis mine

      The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This
      means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent;
      should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without
      the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching,
      or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient
      knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved
      as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision.
      latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision
      by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature,
      duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is
      to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected;
      and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his
      participation in the experiment.

      The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests
      upon each individual who initiates, directs, or engages in the experiment. It is
      a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with

      In other words, the United States of America, under the leadership control of the American Left, is engaged in:

      Violation of the Nuremberg Code as established in 1947, in its forcible coercion of uninformed citizens to accept an experimental drug proven to have serious possible side effects, without any informed consent being required or made possible

      Enrichment of drug cartels in Mexico through its Open Borders policy, resulting in the violent and brutal cartels shifting focus from drugs to human trafficking for profit

      Enabling of human trafficking including sex trafficking of women and minor children

      The destruction of hundreds of thousands of well-paying jobs in the petroleum industry and shifting to paying Middle Eastern nations, including Saudi Arabia, for oil we used to produce domestically. As Saudi Arabia is the biggest financial contributor to international terrorism the United States is now funneling American taxpayer money into funding the terrorists who want to destroy the United States while simultaneously trying to destroy a significant segment of the American economy.

      The systemic dismantling of American culture and tradition and replacing it with radical Leftist ideology and government.

      The systemic corruption of American public education, turning it into nothing but radical Marxist indoctrination in efforts to generate hatred and distrust of the nation as conceived, founded and once proudly flourishing

      Return to racial segregation and race-based programs, policies, education and job opportunities.

      Government-mandated and enforced destruction of the potential productivity of an entire generation to ensure increased future dependency on an increasingly Leftist government

      Systemic undermining of the strength, efficiency and abilities of our military and the associated weakening of our ability to mount a vigorous national defense.

      The attempted destruction of the concept of a sovereign nation by making it a geographic area without borders

      The dismantling of the American justice system in ways ranging from abandoning the rule of law, refusing to prosecute crimes, gradually eroding police protections until they no longer exist and using law enforcement not to enforce laws protecting the populace but to enforce political dictates.

      Putting the Cloward-Piven Strategy into effect, with the goal of crashing the existing government by overwhelming it with demands it cannot possibly meet, including its current strategy to swamp the system with demands to provide services to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens

      This is only a partial list of what the Biden administration has accomplished in less than one year.

      From one of the great comments to that excellent article:

      Evidence is pouring out that the Michigan governor kidnapping set-up was a practice run for the more important theater play, The Fire Extinguisher Rebellion. And five-hundred Soy Boys wearing red caps were involved in that farce for every Proud Boy waving an American flag. Pelosi’s Reichstag Fire always had the unmistakable stink of the Six Ways from Sunday crowd. But at least it wasn’t as violent as Operation Cold Yap, the daily struggle to keep Biden from speaking to reporters.
