are asking, why do they hate us? They hate what we
see right here in this chamber – a democratically elected government. Their
leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms
– our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom
to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.
to overthrow existing governments in many Muslim countries, such
as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. They want to drive Israel
out of the Middle East. They want to drive Christians
and Jews out of vast regions of Asia and Africa.
kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and end a way of
life. With every atrocity, they hope that America grows
fearful, retreating from the world and forsaking our friends. They
stand against us, because we stand in their way.
We are not
deceived by their pretenses to piety. We have seen
their kind before. They are the heirs of all the murderous
ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life
to serve their radical visions – by abandoning every value except
the will to power – they follow in the path of fascism, and Nazism,
and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the
way, to where it ends: in history's unmarked grave
of discarded lies.
When the President
speaks of the "unmarked grave of discarded lies,"
is he alluding to something like the
Memory Hole? Could it be perhaps the forgetfulness of a neglectful,
distracted, preoccupied, or thoroughly brainwashed, American People?
How about a list of lies that even this administration couldn’t
sell? Are "discarded lies" anything like deliberate cover-ups
by this White House in collusion with other government agencies?
I don’t want
to shock anyone but some other Presidents have been liars.
Thanks to Tom
DiLorenzo, those of us who no longer wish to worship at the
Lincoln Memorial have solid scholarship to which we can resort.
But remember, there have been patriots desperately warning us about
Lincoln ever since the scoundrel appeared on the scene.
It makes as
little sense to hold on to false history as it does to eschew the
proper assessment of your future prospects:
it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are
apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the
song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this
the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle
for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who,
having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which
so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever
anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole
truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it. – Patrick
a vile man who made war on his own countrymen under false pretenses
care one iota about liberating anyone. He did care about breaking
down States’ rights in favor of an omnipotent central government.
Now we see his political heirs moving further in the direction of
his legacy at the expense of our civil liberties and to the detriment
across the globe.
Is there no
way for us to pick up on Presidential Lies Before they take
greater and greater tolls in lives and liberty? Is there no way
to make the Representatives of the People understand that they often
need to protect us all from our own President?
If the Congress
is not effective in curbing Executive or Judicial anarchy (and they
are Not), how can it be said that we still have Representative
and the Afghanis must be somewhat confused by now about what it
means to "make
the world safe for democracy. Will Obama or Hillary be able
to explain the nuances to them? Bill Clinton used bombing, cruise
missiles, troop deployments, and invasions to spread democracy.
The House Democrats have been impotent or else have colluded with
the Bush war/democracy machine. And McCain is a "tough guy"
who shoots from the hip – when
he’s not shooting his mouth off.
The world may
become a safe place for the "democracy" these people have
in mind – when they lock us all down in solitary confinement. The
most ignorant American does not equate "democracy" with
the loss of his own freedoms. But that is exactly what is in store
for him if he chooses to remain in his indolent
slumber as his tax dollars are used to build and rebuild the Empire.
If you were
fooled about Lincoln you may have been fooled by Bush. Lincoln’s
war was a fraud – Clinton’s wars were frauds. Bush’s wars are also
frauds. Obama’s wars will be frauds. Hillary’s wars will be frauds.
Years War will be a fraud.

As you read
the President’s words, always make simple mental associations with
the Golden Rule. What if you were an Iraqi or an Afghani? Would
you feel the same way about the doctrine of preemptive war?
is devoid of empathy. So why did Bush say, “Americans are asking,
why do they hate us?”
I don’t believe
for one moment that anyone ever emailed, snail mailed, or phoned
the White House to whine, “WHY DO THEY HATE US?”
Do you believe
it happened that way? How can we possibly believe this man is ever
concerned about any other country or people hating us? Who has done
more to make people hate us than George W. Bush? If getting people
to hate us was the goal the President can proclaim, "Mission
Do you believe
they hate us because of our freedoms – or could it have anything
at all to do with perhaps as many as 7 (that’s seven) million deaths
or more between various US actions in Afghanistan and Iraq?
Do you want
to use some lowball numbers from the Feds? Go right ahead. But remember,
a Felony is a Felony. One single death caused by "collateral
damage" in a war waged under false pretenses is bad enough.
But when it is proven that civilians were murdered under Direct
Orders based on boldface lies there will be plenty of Felony charges
to go around. There could be a whole chain of command saturated

be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice
to silence our fears for the safety of our rights... Confidence
is everywhere the parent of despotism. Free government is founded
in jealousy, and not in confidence. It is jealousy and not confidence
which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom
we are obliged to trust with power... Our Constitution has accordingly
fixed the limits to which, and no further, our confidence may
go... In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence
in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.
