So Many Intolerable Lies - Even the U.S. Marines have been corrupted
The American Spectator ^ | January 6, 2014 | Jed Babbin

Posted on 01/06/2014 4:38:25 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

Two events last week — one an announcement by the Marine Corps, the other speeches at the inauguration of New York City's new mayor — illustrated vividly how President Obama and his media cohort have so narrowed the boundaries of political speech that we no longer believe we can challenge outright lies..

[snip]

..What Obama said about America in that speech was a lie, what Rev. Lucas and Harry Belafonte said in the de Blasio inauguration were lies, and what the Marines did in renewing their diminution of physical standards for combat arms was the renewal of a broken promise.

There are so many lies coming out of the White House that we have become numb to them. But to concede that is to concede the debate. That is what is happening now across our political spectrum.

We are told by the New York Times that there was no terrorist involvement in the Benghazi attack and that Edward Snowden, the NSA leaker, should be pardoned. The former is an outright lie — see the statements of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers — and the latter is a judgment based on another lie.....

[snip]

...There are many certainties, many facts that have to be defended. And there used to be American institutions that could be relied on to defend those truths at all costs. How far has America fallen that the Marine Corps is breaking promises and implementing lies?

Too far. No nation can long survive if it bases its continuation on lies.....

We now know how the Russians felt as they read Tass. I always wondered how they could swallow all that propaganda, now I know, there were some who did and some who knew they were being lied to.

There’s nothing new here. All Marxist-Communists are ends justify the means liars.

Traitors lie.

This is repeatedly demonstrated by Traitorobama and his regime, traitorous leaders in the military, Demonrats and RINOs in Congress, and the fifth-column media.

Socialists are masters at distortion to dictate to the masses for control - always with disastrous consequences and the death of millions.

"Lysenkoism is used metaphorically to describe the manipulation or distortion of the scientific process as a way to reach a predetermined conclusion as dictated by an ideological bias, often related to social or political objectives." Source

Anyone who didn’t see this coming just hasn’t been paying attention for the last forty years.

Since the birth of our Republic, there have been a number of significant events that have drastically affected our country’s future development and wellbeing. Some of these events were immediately recognized as significant, but others have taken longer to be recognized, and one of these is the 1968 Tet Offensive during the Vietnam War.

The damage caused to our country by the “Butterfly Effect” spawned by the 1968 Tet Offensive is just now beginning to be realized by a few of us who were there. Those who were there know all too well the meaning of Tet and what occurred during Tet 1968 and its aftermath, but for those who weren’t there, let me explain.

During the Vietnam War, the Chinese New Year celebration was called Tet and it was the only holiday the Vietnamese celebrated during the year. The Tet celebration lasted for two weeks, and it wasn’t just a time for drinking, feasting, and partying, it was a time for family reunions where Vietnamese traveled great distances to be with their families during these two weeks.

Prior to Tet 1967, a truce had been negotiated with the Communists, and both sides had agreed to a cease-fire during the two weeks of Tet in 1967. The Communists had honored this mutually agreed upon truce and had maintained a cease-fire throughout the 1967 two week Tet celebration, but we had observed them blatantly moving troops and equipment in the open without fear of attack from us.

In 1968, the South Vietnamese Government negotiated another truce with the Communists and both sides agreed to another cease-fire again for Tet 1968. The Communists had profited greatly from the previous Tet 1967 cease-fire when they had used the cease-fire to resupply and refit their units in the field without interference from U.S. air and artillery strikes, so we fully expected them to honor their agreed upon Tet 1968 cease-fire, as it was fully to their advantage to do so, or so we thought at the time.

However, the Communists used this 1968 mutually agreed upon cease-fire to infiltrate its Viet Cong combat units into all major cities in South Vietnam under the cover of the extensive pre-holiday travel that preceded Tet, when many Vietnamese returned home to be with their families during the Tet holidays. This infiltration was in preparation for simultaneous attacks throughout South Vietnam at midnight on January 29, 1968. An estimated fifteen Viet Cong battalions, to include the entire Viet Cong 9th Division with its 271st, 272nd, and 273rd Regiments, were infiltrated to positions in and around Saigon with the intent of capturing South Vietnam’s Capitol. For some reason, we had all forgotten that all Communists are “Ends Justify the Means” liars, and in the end, it cost us the war.

The 1968 Tet Offensive was a coordinated “Do or Die” attack by every Viet Cong unit in Vietnam on the night of January 29 and the morning of January 30, 1968 that simultaneously struck every South Vietnamese City, village, and military installation in an attempt to win the war in one country wide surprise attack; they failed and they paid the price for their failure; they died. The annihilation of Viet Cong units was carried out by American and South Vietnamese combat units throughout South Vietnam and was a disaster for the Communist insurgency, as it never recovered from its loses. The war was carried on after Tet 1968 by invading North Vietnamese, and North Vietnam could never move sufficient troops down the Ho Chi Minh Trail to ever hope to defeat the United States effort in South Vietnam, so they resorted to their favorite Communist tactic; they lied.

1968 was a Presidential Election year in the United States, and the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) attempted to use the Tet Offensive to influence the election by claiming it was a Communist victory and the war was lost. The CPUSA organized an anti-war movement and assembled enough strength through this movement to seize control of the Democrat Party that summer during the 1968 Democrat Convention in Chicago. These Communists attempted to nominate a Presidential candidate who would end the war and they failed, but the CPUSA still retained control of the Democrat Party, and this Party managed to elect enough Leftist Democrats to Congress to cut funding for the Vietnam War, American troops were withdrawn, logistic support for South Vietnam was terminated, and the war was then lost, so in this way the 1968 Tet Offensive was indeed a Communist victory.

After using the Tet Offensive to gain control of the Democrat Party, the Communist Party USA never lost control, and when a few decades later they managed to elect an avowed Marxist Communist to the Presidency of the United States, it made the 1968 Tet Offensive the greatest Communist victory of all time.

Obama and his Marxist-Communist Administration didn’t just suddenly appear in November of 2008; they made their first appearance on the streets of Saigon in the early morning hours of January 30, 1968. For the next forty years, while we were focused on Communist insurgencies around the world, here at home Communists quietly invaded all levels of our education system and contaminated two generations of our children’s minds with Marxist-Communist thought, as our Communist dominated News Media cheered them on.

Is there even one American who still believes the United States won the Cold War? Or, does anyone even care anymore?

But of course.This has been happening for a long tiome, but the continuous “Obama Campaign” started small and got more complex as it evolved.

It is important that we understand the context in which this control of free speech is accomplished. That context is fascism, pure and simple. However, the American people and the GOP are in denial of this fact of fascism.

The normal checks, (the Constitution/Courts, GOP in Congress, the media) against fascism cannot accept that it is indeed fascism we face as a nation, and therefore cannot fight against it or even protect those who fight against it.
The inevitable result will be civil war, which is where Obama and the left want us all to go.

And Civil war is where we will go unless the GOP awakens to form a conservative opposition to the coercive Utopian movement represented by Obama and his aparatchiks.The fate of the nation rests in the hands of Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin. If they can form an opposition against Obama, it will spare the coming blood shed of Civil War and disorder on a massive scale.

A good read:

Well stated truth. And the three TV broadcasting networks and all the major newspapers wholehearted joined in the effort by misinformation, out right lying, and spiking of true news of that pivotal year.

The same held true with the Communist funded and led riots in Europe at the time. At the time I thought, how convenient that just as one event was dying down another sparked up elsewhere

So called student protests, black riots, Chicago Dem convention riots were all falsely presented in prime time and by design were meant to fan the flames of revolt. Add to that our domestic bombings of that era.

Liberalism is built on a lie: all people have the same aptitudes and intelligence, and it is only oppression and bigotry by the patriarchy that keeps certain groups or sexes from performing as well as the so-called privileged white male groups. Wherever liberals are in control, standards get lowered, the culture gets debased, and people get killed.

And how many victims of revisionist history and marxist indoctrination in school have never even considered the issue or perhaps not even heard of the Cold War?

As they tear down our institutions and pit us against each other, they’re undermining our love for our country, its founding and founders — continually working to chip away at our resolve to fight to protect and keep it.

Communists quietly invaded all levels of our education system
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Communists quietly infected our nation's schools long before 1968. Bill Ayers is where he is today due to the mentoring of the Marxists of my father and grandparents’ generations ( born 1913 and early 1890s)

Compulsory K-12 single-payer and socialist-entitlement schooling was a Prog idea of the early 1800s.
Progs have always controlled teacher training and curriculum development.
Progs have always pushed for greater and greater secularization.
Progs have always pushed at the edges of society's moral and ethics.

The very idea of single-payer and socialist-entitlement schooling is an abomination.

Finally....In a generation or two our citizens will be pining for the good old days of Obamacare when it wasn't so bad. Every argument that is used for and against government schooling will be used with single-payer and socialist-entitlement health care.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

These were people of my father's and grandparents’ generation! Where were they educated and who educated them? Answer: In Prog dominated schools by Prog teachers and communist sympathizers.

Where did Walter Cronkite and Walter Duranty get their educations?

The rot in education started long before 1968.

April 28, 2013 - Peter Ferrara, Wall Street Journal: The Disgraceful Episode Of Lysenkoism Brings Us Global Warming Theory "...............The V.I. Lenin Academy of Agricultural Sciences announced on August 7, 1948 that thenceforth Lysenkoism would be taught as the only correct theory. All Soviet scientists were required to denounce any work that contradicted Lysenkoism. Ultimately, Soviet geneticists resisting Lysenkoism were imprisoned and even executed. Lysenkoism was abandoned for the correct modern science of Mendelian genetics only as late as 1964.

The Theory of Man Caused Catastrophic Global Warming

This same practice of Lysenkoism has long been under way in western science in regard to the politically correct theory of man caused, catastrophic, global warming. That theory serves the political fashions of the day in promoting vastly increased government powers and control over the private economy. Advocates of the theory are lionized in the dominant Democrat party controlled media in the U.S., and in leftist controlled media in other countries. Critics of the theory are denounced as “deniers,” and even still bourgeois fascists, with their motives impugned.

Those who promote the theory are favored with billions from government grants and neo-Marxist environmentalist largesse, and official recognition and award. Faked and tampered data and evidence has arisen in favor of the politically correct theory. Is not man-caused, catastrophic global warming now the only theory allowed to be taught in schools in the West?

Those in positions of scientific authority in the West who have collaborated with this new Lysenkoism because they felt they must be politically correct, and/or because of the money, publicity, and recognition to be gained, have disgraced themselves and the integrity of their institutions, organizations and publications......................"

No nation can long survive if it bases its continuation on lies.....

The Constitutional Republic of the United States died November 4, 2008, My FRiend. The majority of voters, via their votes, said that they wished to be ruled by one barrack Obama who they secretly considered to be their lord, savior, and messiah. This was acknowledged publically in 2013 by a member of the media. On November 6, 2012, a majority of voters reaffirmed the decision they made on November 4, 2008. That decision? They preferred to be ruled as slaves by one barrack Obama, among other names he has, that to live as free men and women.

The decision made by both parties to throw the veterans under the bus and concentrate on illegals reinforces my belief that possibly by 2014 and no later than 2016, the illegals will be voting in U.S. elections.

Year by year, month by month, week by week, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second we are approaching The Great Winston Churchill's, If we do not fight when we can win, we will be forced to fight when there is no chance of winning, fighting only to be able to die as free men and women.

> We now know how the Russians felt as they read Tass.

The Russians had a pun using the names of their two largest news services.

One was named Pravda, which means “Truth”, and the other was named Isvestia, which means news.

In the Russian it’s a pun because of the names of the news agencies, but it rings true in modern America even without the pun aspect.

“In the Truth (Pravda) there is no News (Isvestia), and in the News (Isvestia) there is no Truth (Pravda).

Keep in mind that we won Tet, we won Vietnam. We got a peacetreaty with Canada as a peace keeper. Only after we left did they invade in violation of their treaty. The 1972 bombings brought North Vietnam to the table and they signed a peace treaty.

After their invasion they were faced with the fact that communism doesn’t work, and had to abandon it. They even invaded Cambodia and stopped Pol Pot from murdering the rest of Cambodia.
