We can directly point to elected officials, appointed officials, and hired bureaucrats. First we will talk about the hired bureaucrats. The most notorious that comes to mind is Lois Learner. She unabashedly sat in front of Congress and told bold faced lies after swearing to tell the truth. When her lies had revealed themselves she used the very constitution she helped to shred and claimed the fifth. Other IRS employees lied to cover their wrong doings as did employees from the DOJ when questioned about Fast and Furious. The regime, even though it is their sworn duty, did nothing to these documented liars.
Appointed officials to higher levels of the IRS and the DOJ also went before Congress and lied to them about Fast and Furious and other scandals as well. The Attorney General lied to congress about Fast and Furious. He lied about what he learned when and what his role was in the cover up. What we do not know is how involved was he in the implementation.
EPA Chief Administrator Gina McCarthy lied while testifying before Congress last month. In a July 9 hearing McCarthy made false statements regarding the science behind the EPA’s Clean Water Rule, the agency’s approach to regulating ozone levels and concerns about withholding highway funding from states. This was done to advance the climate warming, cooling, or change agenda, whichever is in vogue at the time, so the EPA can impose even greater regulations.
James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, lied to congress when asked about government surveillance of citizens. Remember the not wittingly remark. Clapper kept changing his story explaining he did not lie but finally, about a month later, he finally admitted that he lied, but claimed that it was all a "mistake."
The most egregious of the liars, assuming lies can be rated, would have to be the elected officials knowingly lying to the people. Again Obama is the best known and certainly most noted. In addition we have people like Representative Cummings acting outraged when it was pointed out that he had orchestrated a governmental attack against the founder of True the Vote. The problem for Cummings was that his communication setting the attack in motion was in writing and can be read by all.
So many of our elected officials from both sides of the isle will say anything to get elected knowing they will not follow through with their promises. Senator McConnell, Representatives Boehner and McCarthy come to mind. These three promised the conservatives that laws to stop the lawlessness and the Marxist policies of this regime would be placed on desk in the oval office so Obama would have to sign or veto; he would have to declare. These same three promised that congress would perform its duty of preparing and passing a timely budget and no longer operate on last minute continuing resolutions. This is another promise broken because we are within a couple of weeks of the budget deadline and nothing is in even close to being in place. Yes, this means another last minute pork laden continuing resolution just like in the days of Reid.
Now we learn that the United States is surrendering its sovereignty regarding immigration. The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement has a chapter on immigration, a Freedom of Information Act request reveals. It has been revealed that a part of TPP would require changes in U.S. immigration law as it relates to foreign worker visas. The trade deal has not been made public, but Knowledge Ecology International filed a Freedom of Information Act request to get the titles of the chapters in June. One of those chapters is titled, "Temporary Entry for Business Persons," according to a copy of the FOIA response on TechDirt.com.
The Obama regime, which pushed the deal, has repeatedly denied the TPP has an immigration clause. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, one of the Republicans who favored the deal, also denied immigration was included. Obama, Ryan, and others lied to the American public in order to pass this agreement.
As I said earlier, lying is not unique to just one side of the isle. We Freedom Loving Americans must work for the replacement of any and all elected, appointed, and hired servants working in the government regardless of party affiliation. If we do not, we will lose our freedom. In the unique system of government established by our founders, we the people are the sovereign; that means servants who lie to us must be dealt with harshly and severely or they will dispose of the ruler, the people, and claim our power making us the servants of the government, just as in all totalitarian states.
