Itís Worse Than Lies: Thereís No Word in the English Language for What Trump & Co. Are Doing
thedailybeast.com ^ | 10.24.19 | Michael Tomasky

In 2010, researchers from Harvard and Google put their heads together to determine that there are roughly 1,022,000 words in the English language. The Oxford English Dictionary lists around 600,000.

Either way, that’s a lot of words. But there isn’t a word in the English language for what Donald Trump and the Republicans are doing.

They are no longer merely lying. Lying is covering up the truth. Lying is, No, Mom, honest, I didn’t break Aunt Donna’s Hummel. Or: No, Your Honor, I did not bilk my investors out of $4 million and abscond to Grand Cayman.

What these people are doing goes way beyond that. It’s a direct nuclear assault on the truth. It’s not: I didn’t break the figurine. Instead, it’s:

Mom, not only did I not break it, but Susie broke it, and I painstakingly glued it back together after she did so, and the facts that a) Susie has been away at camp all this time and b) you’re looking at it there on the dining room table in 37 pieces are tricks, delusions—manifestations of a vast, fake-news conspiracy against me orchestrated by Susie and Aunt Donna. They’ve met together recently on more than one occasion, after all, and people are saying that Aunt Donna bought two boxes of Samoas and one box of Tagalongs from Susie; and that, dear Mother, is proof of the cabal!

For this, we do not have a word. In the entire English language. Chew on that for a minute. MORE AT LINK

The deep state is preparing to mislead the public once it's revealed that the Dems and their fellow traitors are actually committing all of the crimes that they are falsely accusing President Trump of having done

This opinion "piece" is comprised of false assertions (oh the irony). First is the writer's assertion that this technique that Dems routinely use (e.g., falsely accusing Republicans of doing what Dems routinely do) is NEW.

Second is the writer's ludicrous assertion that Republicans invented this particular psyop.

Sadly, it is only another psyop to which We The People do not deserve to be subjected. Sadder still - it's not just the Dems; there are traitors on both sides of the aisle.

The Left is willing to be the (proud) face of this particular shop-worn psyop, while our Republican traitors are inclined to slither around under rocks while silently writing hands, clutching at pearls.

Good news: The evidence is on Trump's side and Adam Schiff and co will have to try to spin their fake Soviet trial into the appearance of...oh I dunno...they just have to stand their slop up against the evidence (i.e., people, there's a TRANSCRIPT OF THE CALL for heaven's sake!) which proves President Trump is innocent.

"Lying is, No, Mom, honest, I didn’t break Aunt Donna’s Hummel."

So the author is a Hunnish son of an anonymous father?

There is a word.

But it's one liberals are utterly unacquainted with in their personal lives.

It's called WINNING.

Give it up, you people. Your kind already tried to redefine truth with a silly, low IQ thing called postmodernism.

Trying to change the meaning of the word lie is simply the inverse of that laughable stunt your predecessors tried to pull.

There’s a point where the media isn’t able to make money by supporting the ‘progressives’ and their paymasters: China.

This article asserts that Dem representatives (Schiff and co) are essentially in the role of Federal Prosecuters right now (!!!) and as such, they are therefore legitimately following a legitimate, established “Federal Criminal Process” with the impeachment hearings right now. Here’s the link to that Federal Criminal Process:

https://www.justice.gov/usao/justice-101/steps-federal-criminal-process

That whole assertion seems bizarre to me, but I have no legal background.

If you have time (and sufficient interest), would you offer your opinion on the comparison of Schiff and co. to federal prosecutors in this context, and the comparison of their impeachment “inquiry” to the Federal Criminal Process cited?

The Left still is unwilling to even acknowledge that the DNC, MSM, and Clinton campaign conspired to steal the 2016 primary from Bernie Sanders.

CNN was busted giving Hillary the questions in ADVANCE but not Sanders’ team.

A rigger townhall/debate is a rigged game show is a rigged election.

The author can find “Suzie” and go screw off.

Sounds more like something Hillary Clinton would come up with to explain her loss to Donald Trump.

“...Samoas...Tagalongs?” What is that illegitimate, effeminate boy talking about?

In other words, don’t believe what your lying ears hear about all time low enemployment, don’t believe what your lying eyes read about all time marks for jobs in the U.S. Don’t believe what you see when your IRA is rising and your bank account has more money than you can ever remember.

It’s all lies. Democrats have the real answers. Just pay attention to Nancy Pelosi and let her and Juan Williams be your guides to Nirvana — Kumbaya!!!!
