"Could we," I said, "somehow contrive one of those lies that come into being in case of need, of which we were just now speaking, some one noble lie to persuade, in the best case, even the rulers, but if not them, the rest of the city? ... I'll attempt to persuade first the rulers and the soldiers, then the rest of the city, that the rearing and education we gave them were like dreams, they only thought they were undergoing all that was happening to them, while, in truth, at that time, they were under the earth within, being fashioned and reared themselves, and their arms and other tools being crafted. When the job had been completely finished, then the earth which is their mother, sent them up. And now, as though the land they are in were a mother and nurse, they must plan for and defend it, if anyone attacks, and they must think of the other citizens as brothers and born of the earth." (Plato's "Republic," Allan Bloom's translation, III/414b-e.)
"Lester, let's finish this one. Do all of your listeners and the listeners throughout this country the service to which any journalist owes those listeners, and that is the pursuit of the noble truth. And the noble truth is that the president was born in Hawaii, a state of the United States of America."(White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, as reported in WND's article, "Now White House joins 'birth hospital' cover-up.")
There was a time when good journalism had a standard consistent with Joe Friday's terse instruction, "All we want are the facts, ma'am." That was the pursuit of the simple truth. When I read the phrase "the noble truth" in Robert Gibbs' smugly evasive riposte

Your guy PING
Perfectly accurate and appropriate.
Obama is a big con artist.
Yup, just want the simple, humble ACCURATE Truth; interesting that GIbbs chose word NOBLE.
higher truth ping
What it means is that the Obama realizes this issue is a "Global Killer" for him, that must be diffused at all cost.
That is why he has spent over a million $ on lawyers, instead of simply producing his COLB.
Cansidering the subject is B. HUSSEIN Obama, anti-American Muslim President,
I actualy think HUSSEIN told a Noble Truth/lie just to destroy America.
Remember, he came out of the political sewer of Illinois.
They are taught at an early age how to lie with a straight face and look you in the eye while doing they are lying.
Political people from Illinois are liars.
Alan Keyes bump
Obama lies about everything....Cap and tax, Health welfare, where he met his wife....on and on and on and on and on. No surprise.
And don’t forget about Sotomya$$
SOTOMYA$$- A liar for all occasions.
Obama posted his birth certificate on “Fight the Smears”. It's there for the WHOLE world to see:
Zer0’s posting of the phony birth certificate on the Internet was a sign of the lies and deception we will get from this mob.
Obama posted his birth certificate on Fight the Smears. It’s there for the WHOLE world to see:
Hint: the website was deleted from the internet a couple of weeks ago. So was its backup: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://fightthesmears.com"
I find this the most interesting of all. The Ministry of Truth at work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“We will rip the BC from his cold, marxist fingers “
Winston Smith has been working on this for months and will soon reveal it for all to see then we can go on with our miserable lives.
The Ministry of Truth will give us all the information we need.
This will only lead to our embarrassment, our Dear Leader would never allow a piece of paper to stand between him and the monarchy. A very, very, very good fake will be presented soon and we will be left empty handed. What then?
Hey Gibbs, we don't care about your "Noble Truth." We are looking for the NoBULL Truth, have your boss release his alleged original hospital birth certificate!!
Yep. Pretty much exactly the eeeeeeeevil slime mom’s concept of TRUTH.
You could hear the all caps whenever she said it...
Is Obamas presidency threatened? [Birth Certificate]
Did anyone notice that Gibbs uses the same tactic taught in Managerial Training 101? The idea that you should flatter the object of your scorn just before you shoot them down? Gibbs did exact that. He calls Lee an intelligent man and then proceeds to do his little laughing dance act. It was quite noticeable.
Next time Gibbs, don’t be so obvious in your attempts to cover up the truth. There’s nothing “noble” about it and you know it.
I still say you guys are missing the boat by harping on his BC. He may have one, he may not. The REAL “noble truth” here is that Obama admits he’s a dual citizen, at birth, and history guarantees that this wasn’t allowed at the time the Constitution was signed.
In fact, there has been no amendment anywhere saying that dual-citizen can run for President. They owe allegiance to both countries, at best. According to the early Supreme Court cases, he would have been deemed ONLY a British subject since they followed the patrem rule, taking the FATHER’s nationality, not the mother. Even if he decided later to owe allegiance to America, he’d be naturalized, not natural born.
Technically, it’s not about the BC, although I’d still love to see it. This jerk isn’t even supposed to be in that office, AT ALL.
Keyes:"The brainwashed American elites buying into the Obama faction's pseudo-Platonic intellectual poison appear to have forgotten the wisdom of the American founders. The founders' approach to government was based on truths derived from observing human experience, rather than "noble" lies forcefully imposed by dictatorial elites. Such experience warned that unchecked power would lead to brutal oppression, no matter the lofty goals and promising rhetoric of those to whom it is entrusted. Plato tacitly acknowledges this severity when he conjures up the ultimate requirement of his Republic's "ideal" regime: the removal from society of everyone over 10 years old (i.e., anyone who refuses to submit to superior power the way very young children must). Given the massive atrocities perpetrated by the totalitarian ideologues of the 20th century, the idea of such large-scale purges is no longer a Platonic one."
Frightening thought. Maybe that's what the "end of life" counseling in Obamacare is for.
