They Lie to Us Because They Think We’re Stupid

Lying is common in politics. Although it’s said prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, politics has got to be the dirtiest. Dirtier than sewer repairmen, morticians, or grave diggers…or even prostitution itself.

Former President Barack Obama promised “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” in what PolitiFact called the 2013 “Lie of the Year.” Former President Bill Clinton perjured himself, which led to his impeachment. The list goes on and on of corrupt politicians.

The legacy media, whose chosen pastime is to prop up Democrats (ruling party) and punishing the Deplorables (Republicans), often joins in the mud-slinging. 

The disinformation operation focused on Russian-collusion was laundered by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign to Fusion GPS, a sketchy “intelligence” firm, along with law firm Perkins Coie LLP. For several years the corporate media then dutifully pushed forward the false narrative. It’s unclear even now if MSNBC has ever even read the Mueller report. 

However, after the CNN debate during which President Joe Biden delivered a disastrous performance, there can only be one conclusion: The yearslong effort by the Biden administration’s cronies, will go down in history books as one of if not the single greatest lie in U.S. history.

What an effort it was!

For several years Dems and the legacy media lied continuously about the staggering decline of the president’s mental and physical faculties.

When Biden fell off a non-moving bike in 2022, admin officials and his handlers said it was no big deal. When Biden then began wearing tennis shoes instead of dress shows to ‘stabilize his gait’ and prevent falls, his aides said Biden was only being savvy.

When Robert Hur, Special Counsel, declined to pursue charges against Joe Biden because of the fact he “would likely present himself to a jury…as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” media honchos denounced Hur as a “Trump plant” in the Justice Department. 

Cue the Hur apology…I won’t hold my breath.

After numerous videos emerged of Biden staring into space, freezing up and wandering off, The New York Times called them “misleading”; while the White House dismissed them calling them “cheap fakes.”

A recent story in The Wall Street Journal in which reporters interviewed 45 officials who showed concern about Biden’s senescence was excoriated as a “hit job.”

Along the way, costly “gaffes” — like Biden calling for regime change in Moscow inadvertently during March 2022 visit to Warsaw — were chalked up simply to good ‘ol Uncle Joe being Uncle Joe. Nothing to see here!

The mainstream media was committed to anything to prevent the voting public from knowing the truth. Axios recently reported how “close aides have carefully shielded (Biden) from people inside and outside the White House since the beginning of his presidency.” For Dems and their enablers in the media, they left (almost) no stone left unturned to protect their precious Joe. 

The media’s gall in believing it could get away with this is shocking. Biden is the president of the United States. Anyone paying attention and with eyes and ears saw Biden’s decline years ago…not weeks. 

Just how stupid do the corporate media and Democrats think we are? For just how long did they believe they could pull the wool over the public’s eyes?

In an October Gallup poll, it was revealed 32% of Americans trust the corporate media either “a fair amount” or “a great deal.” To me, that seems much too high. These media hacks deserve nothing but the public’s contempt and disgust.

The consistent gaslighting by the media for the last two to three years has made all Americans victims. The U.S. public is drastically insecure under the “leadership” of Joe Biden. Xi Jinping is almost guaranteed to make a move on Taiwan before the end of the year. Who will stop him?

The absolute irony of the whole thing? The massive disinformation operation to cover-up the president’s decline has been perpetuated in the name of “our democracy.” The lies.

“Democracy Dies in Darkness” reads masthead slogan of The Washington Post. The slogan was adopted conveniently only weeks after former President Donald Trump assumed office in 2017. Huh? This! When we don’t even know who us running our country right now. It definitely isn’t Joe. That is the darkness democracy dies in.

These liars have done significant damage to the country and our republic.
