When Is Lying Okay?

"I cannot tell a lie..."

Over the decades I've heard various rationalizations from people thinking it's okay to tell a lie here, and a lie there, as long as no one is harmed by the untruth. Then there are those who are pathological liars, a prime example being Barack Hussein Obama. He actually believes his lies which makes him far more dangerous than the first class of rationalizers I mentioned.

It has become a sad state of affairs when the person inhabiting the People's House has been getting away lying with impunity and the Lames Stream Media has acted like it's normal behavior and lapping at his heels like dogs. The estate that was supposed to be the watchdog of the common man has become a mutt instead.

I contend that lying isn't okay no matter the circumstances. There is no "little white lie" because a lie is a lie. It's a fabrication inside someone's mind usually to protect themselves rather than others. This is going somewhere so bear with me. it has been a while since Dan Rather was fired for fabricating stories and now we have Lyin' Brian Williams caught with his tongue in the cookie jar. So other parallels have begun to surface.

Positions of public trust need to be paid attention to regarding selling people a bill of goods to make themselves more than they really are. The state of politics in this country seems to breed a class of people who generally lack a conscientious. Their conscientious is the raw pursuit of power and in some instances fame. If you are paying income taxes, and about 50% of you out there aren't, then those "representatives" are charged with the fiduciary duties of safeguarding your hard earned dollars and applying them in accordance with the laws of this nation. That would include the US Constitution.

There are news networks and sources that are calling out these lying frauds but the big 3 networks are not among those sources. They have long ago abrogated their duties of being the watchdog for the public and turned instead to reporting mainly fluff pieces. Lyin' Brian was supposedly suspended for 6 months without pay but in reality I don't see how they can, in good conscientious, bring the guy back after all the revelations surface. They haven't and there's that pesky "conscientious" word again.

This article is to address one Hillary Rodham Clinton who, maybe or maybe doesn't, aspire to become the next President of the United States. We just go saddled with one liar in that position and sure don't need another one any time soon, if ever. There has been quite a ruckus concerning NBC suspending Lyin' Brian because he lied to viewers. But not too much has been said about Hillary and her string of lies. That's okay with you is it? It's going to be just dandy to elect another person to the highest office of this land based upon lies?

Brian Williams' lies were minuscule compared to Hillary Clinton's outright fabrications Lets take a look so you can maybe digest what I am talking about:

* You saw the graphic above about the "snipers." Her tale was that she landed in Bosnia and came under heavy sniper fire as she ran in terror across the tarmac. But alas there was no sniper fire and Clinton was greeted by a little girl who gave her a poem. In other words she lied. Ask yourself why?

* Remember when she bragged for over ten years that her namesake was Sir Edmund Hillary. He climbed Mount Everest. Well it turns out that Clinton met Sir Edmund Hillary in 1995 and repeated that same story to him. Talk about ingratiating oneself. The problem was, and Sir Edmund knew this, is that dear Hillary was born before Sir Edmund Hillary ever climbed Mt. Everest. Quite a feat then that made him known to the public. A case of mis-remembering?

* Then there was the story about Chelsea and 9/11. Never heard that one? Where you been? According to Hillary Chelsea was jogging by the World Trade Center on 9/11 and nearly lost her life! WOWSER Hillary - close call huh. She conveniently ducked into a coffee shop for cover as she heard the first jet crash into the tower. Just in the nick of time but unfortunately not a word of it was true again. Where was Chelsea at the time? Asleep at a friend's apartment - four miles away from Ground Zero. A friend called her and woke her up to tell her to turn on the TV set. Clinton caught lying again.

* Lets not forget Benghazi which hasn't gone away. Why? Because 4 Americans lost their lives that day due to negligence. What she told the whole world was that the attack on or consulate in Libya was a political protest that got a little out of hand. No way was that a terrorist attack but the result of a silly YouTube video. The truth of the matter? It was all pre-planned by Islamic terrorists. They came in a convoy of trucks, sealed off streets, and launched a vicious assault on the consulate with rocket propelled grenades, mortars, AK-47s and artillery mounted on the trucks. The attackers then attacked the CIA annex a mile away. That much is factually known and acknowledged now. So her response as the nation's Secretary of State was to lie and mislead the public along the way spending $70,000 of taxpayer money running TV commercials consoling Muslims in the Middle East and make apologies for the YouTube video. Whoops caught in the lie again.

It makes a hell of a lot of difference to the parents and loved ones of those 4 deceased Americans in service to this nation. The weren't able to duck into a coffee shop just in the nick of time or dodge that fictitious sniper fire in Bosnia..

So there you have it. It seems Hillary took copious notes on how to lie with a straight face from her philandering husband William Jefferson Clinton. It might be time to maybe look seriously at a woman candidate for the office of POTUS. I'm thinking that Hillary, like Obama, lacks the honesty and integrity that would be befitting of that high office.

As always,

The Frog Prince

Frog, you have to give Hiliary credit for one thing, she started her political career as a liar, earning the dubious distinction of being fired by her own liberal Democrat boss and has remained consistent .

Does a Tiger change it's stripes? Former general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes. Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Sen. Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. Google: Hillary Watergate.

Evidently that was really a commendation for consideration in a leadership position of the Democrat party at sometime in her pursuing career. The more she lied the higher up the ladder she goes, just like all the rest of the Democrat party leadership. Obama, Kerry, Shultz, Reid, all publicly confirmed 1st degree liars.

I'll bet the Dems are already couting Williams to run for an office.

Oh how right you are - and how good to see you back into the mode again. Hope all is well. We sure have a huge problem on our hands, and Missy Ding Bat Hillary-Dillary-Dunk is just one of them. Good article and we need to keep people awake and aware.

I agree, Obama does believe his own lies, or at minimum he believes it's wrong for society to to believe lying (specifically his lying) is a wrong thing to do. In the first case, he's a highly fixated psychotic. In the second, he's sociopathic. Since highly fixated psychotics don't plan, and Obama does, my personal opinion is that he is a sociopath. He's aware society thinks lying is wrong, but at the same time, he thinks society is wrong in applying this standard to HIM. So he'll lie whenever it's useful to him and he thinks there won't be negative consequences to HIM (if the lies hurt someone else, that doesn't matter to him). This is essentially the mentality of a serial killer (sociopathy), albeit at a lower intensity.

Enough time has now passed for all the professional liars to get their stories straight to cover Hillary's butt on Benghazi. Nothing more will come of this no matter how many hearings are held.

Holder will skate on Fast & Furious even though he was heavily involved. If he were found guilty Obama would issue him an immediate pardon and he would get another high paying job in government.

The IRS investigation is dead and Lois Learner will live happily ever after on her very lucrative retirement.

Nothing more will come over the VA scandal. Those responsible will continue to receive their fat bonus checks for a job not done.

Our President will continue to lie until he is evicted from the White House, and will do as much damage to our country as possible before that day finally gets here.

In other words, nothing will change in Washington and new liars will come on board to replace the old liars.

And sadly, we now accept all of these lies as business-as-usual in our government. Perhaps if we could fire a few of them caught lying to us, it might bring about some change, but I doubt that will ever happen.

Your last paragraph Mike is the stone cold truth and a pathetic state of affairs here in our country.

Mike, I think you are being a little over optimistic...really, I mean those are pretty rosy projections (to the looney leftwing America hating Obama zombie, obama phone, free from obama's stash crowd: aka democrats)

Jim - As you are well aware, we can fire them at the voting booth. But I read many comments where the writer declares they have quit voting. Perhaps in some cases that is a good thing, but for the rest of them, shame on you.

tsad - No problem my friend, they won't understand the comment anyhow. It is way over their heads.

Then you have the people of Arizona who have two wacked out Senators in McLame and Flake (he definitely is) who like to talk the talk until it's time to walk the walk Mike.

Jim, with any luck at all we will get rid of them at the next election. But who knows with all the new voters who will soon join our ranks after Amnesty. Heck they may like McLame and Flake.

When a pathologic liar tells the same untruth over and over again it becomes their reality. They will continue to spread their untruthful "reality" to the public giving it more credibility in their narcissistic mind, until heaven forbid, they are questioned and proven a liar. It won't change the false reality in their mind, but it will hopefully shut them up until their next fabrication skews wildly adrift of Truth. Once a liar always a liar.

One gets the impression that the most effective modern tactic for influencing people is what we used to call ‘laying down the guilt trip’. We in the here and now are supposed to bear the guilt because Christians resisted the expansion of the Muslim empire in the Second Millennia, a thousand years ago. We in the here and now are supposed to bear the guilt for 88 years of slavery in the United States, when that same institution ended over 160 years ago. It is not right to live under the rule of someone whose guiding light is the sins of a distant past. It is not right for leadership in the here and now attempt to make folks of the present bear the guilt for something that occurred in a distant past. If we as Americans want to live that way, then we should mass immigrate to the Middle East, where never ending war between peoples because of history is the accepted norm.

Keep this in mind though, we are not being lied to, this is merely a tactic for dealing with those who are to be treated as ignorant heathens.

Hey frog, Up and awesomely useful.

Somehow a comment intended for breakfastpop's hub 'the detached president' ended up on your hub. It seems to augment, rather than address your topic. Either way, it seems to fit. If I had used the word King in the previous comment, I would have only changed it to Queen for this article. Birds of a feather, and all that ...

To whom are you talking? "You say..." ?

I don't see anyone even mentioning Trump in this hub page or the comments let alone saying any of his lies are facts, and yes he does lie, name one person who hasn't, but just who are you accusing and what lies are they accepting as fact? Or are you just mad because nobody here is covering up for Hillary or anyone for that matter. The truth hurts doesn't it.

The Frog Price? remevant?

Considering the Frog Pri(n)ce has no recent activity I find it hard to believe you've had discussions with him about Trump and I know the Frog Prince, he would never accept anyone's lies as facts which is what you are accusing him of doing.

But I guess it's remevant, when one is drunk one can say anything one wants.
