There Are Lies, There Are Damned Lies, And There Is Conservatism


Progressives have long been troubled by the question: Why do the Cons lie so much? Is is genetic? Is it a learned response?

No, they lie because they have to...



No matter what kind of criminals they bond with...



And the typical Conservatives even have to keep mum about their personal lives...



And that's what Americans seem to like...



...because their lies never seem to stop!



It's been proven over and over that the Cons are the biggest liars in our political system...



So just think about where the lies are really coming from...

"Republicans Condemn North Korean Human Rights Violations While Ignoring Their Own."

hypocrisy-meter

"It is safe to say that no-one likes a hypocrite, particularly someone that fails to follow their own self-expressed morality and high ethical standards while criticizing others for engaging in the same despicable behavior. Republicans are certainly guilty of hypocrisy on many levels, but it is likely because being a rank hypocrite is a uniquely American trait and defining characteristic of the United States phony human rights advocacy at home and around the world. It is another sign of American exceptionalism that would be a source of national shame for decent people, but sadly, more and more Americans are no longer decent people.

"It was announced on Tuesday, and ignored by the mainstream conservative media, that the United States of America co-sponsored a groundbreaking United Nation’s resolution condemning North Korea for human rights abuses and recommended the prosecution of its leaders for crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court. What the resolution means is that North Korean leaders could be hauled before the International Criminal Court at The Hague for punishment and to provide justice for victims of atrocities, war crimes and crimes against humanity.


"The hypocrisy of this nation co-sponsoring a resolution condemning anyone country for human rights abuses (torture) is beyond the pale. Particularly in light of the recent Senate Intelligence Report verifying what the world has known for several years; America is guilty of committing gross human rights abuses on its own citizens and “suspected terrorists” held in captivity..."

Sometimes there are other reasons the Conservatives lie, even though the lies are "lies of ommission..."



And from the great site, Addicting Info, what would the world be like if the mainstream media had to tell the truth?

"'Daily Show' Presents Tips On How Fox Should Identify Its Guests (VIDEO)."

Daily Show Guest Has Some Tips For Fox On Identifying Their Guests (VIDEO)

"Last week Fox’s blustering talking fat head Sean Hannity treated his fans to a heaping helping of the hateful vitriol they crave, when he blasted Jay-Z for meeting with NY Governor Andrew Cuomo to discuss his views on reforming their state’s notoriously racist criminal justice system.

"Forget the fact that Jay-Z’s now a successful rapper, music producer, business man, and philanthropist: The folks at Fox News will never see him as anything but the drug-dealing criminal he was in his youth:

"Let’s talk about Jay Z, who’s now an adviser for Andrew Cuomo. Why would the governor pick him? We can’t do better than a former crack dealer?"


"Apparently, Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams from The Daily Show felt as angry about Hannity’s and Fox’s attitude as we did..."

Let's see a few more pics...

But in the end, the Cons are incapable of telling the truth, and we think we know why...




********************




Conservatism and lies go hand in hand and always have, but in a participatory democracy the Cons have to be especially careful that the media doesn't report the truth.

The truth shall set us free, we've heard, and the one thing the Cons hate is the thought of anyone else's freedom except their own -- freedom to steal, kill, and inflict whatever misery they can on the People so that the rich can get richer and the middle class is pronounced dead on arrival.

There is only one way to stop this lying pack of criminals, and that is to criminalize Conservatism.

Conservatism: There Oughta Be A Law!




Have you ever wondered how the Cons get away with their criminality, time after time?



Well, some of them lie every time they open their mouths...

"Dick Cheney’s Lies on Torture and Invading Iraq Waterboarded to Death by Fact Checkers."



"NEWSFLASH: Dick Cheney is a liar! We know, don’t fall out of your chairs. Still, it probably matters for the sake of posterity that we record his latest lying spree regarding the torture he approved — if only so we can say 'Uhh…we’re not with that guy.' So, here goes:

"Cheney stirred up a good bit of controversy after last week’s interview with Bret Baier, and then the longer one with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press. In part because in the latter, he led off with 'At least it’s not as evil as 9/11.' But beyond matters of good taste, Cheney violated the laws of truth with several of his statements. Over the last week, Politifact, its sister ship PunditFact and the Washington Post collected some of the biggest doozies.


"First, Politifact fact-checked this statement by Cheney during the Baier interview on Fox 'News,' that terrorists weren’t covered by the Geneva convention..."

Because they "have their reasons."




But our journalists do help get the facts straight...



"Fox News Deceitfully Edits Video To Falsely Place Al Sharpton At Scene Of An Anti-Cop Protest."

"The hosts of Fox & Friends went out of their way Sunday to malign civil rights leader and MSNBC host Al Sharpton. In multiple segments throughout their morning broadcast they aired videos of Sharpton at a rally in Washington, D.C. to protest the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York, and other victims of police brutality.


"However, in a deliberate act of journalistic deceit, they spliced those videos together with a separate event in New York City where some protesters were heard disparaging the police and chanting for “dead cops.”

There have even been a few Republican presidents that broke the law, including this guy...



But in the end, their lies are necessary to cover up their crimes...



...even it if means that these Comsymps keep cozying up with the Commies!



And if you've been especially nice this year, you better watch out...



Because it's the liars that get along in Conservaworld...



Especially when they control the votes...



*********************



There have been some pretty serious suggestions for stopping the criminal cartel known as "Conservatism," but the photo above may be a little severe -- or is it?

Their criminality leads to theft, murder, and untold misery for the People.

Because Conservatism is all about the interests of the rich aristocrats among us, all the rest of their "issues" is nothing but lies and smoke and mirrors to fool the most intellectually challenged among us.

The best way to stop a criminal organization is to enact laws like the RICO statutes, laws that criminalize Conservatism.

Is Stupidity Responsible For Us Voting Against Our Best Interests?


John Stuart Mill's famous quote, "Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative," would seem to be the short answer to our question, but let's explore the problem a little more.

First we have the Low Information Voter who has never heard of class warfare...



And then we have the con artists the Low Information Voters put into office...



But back to the original question, this time in regard to stock market investors...

"James Carville: Why do people vote against their interests?"



"During my time as a political strategist, one of the most vexing problems was figuring out why so many people vote against their perceived interests. Commentators like myself have spent countless hours speculating on why so many people vote against their perceived interests, staying up late talking about it in strategy meetings, on TV discussing what inspires voters — even writing about it in this publication.

"A chief complaint of many Republicans is that Asian-Americans and Jews strongly support and vote for Democrats despite the affluent economic standing many have achieved. Similarly, Democratic strategists struggle to understand why 77 out the 100 poorest and most government-dependent counties in the United States voted for Mitt Romney in 2012.

"But the people who consistently and overwhelmingly vote in large numbers against their interests are stock market investors.


"I have no earthly idea why a stock market investor would vote Republican — all you have do is look at the numbers. The numbers are staggering, breathtaking and unimaginable. How anyone with even a penny in the market would vote for their interests and choose a Republican is unexplainable..."

Some of the people who vote against their best interests are women...



...but most of them are men:

"Pat Robertson: Gays Will Soon Go Extinct ‘Because They Don’t Reproduce’ (Video)."


"On his show “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson spoke to a caller who said her church doesn’t allow its members to date, leaving her and her friends 'frustrated because we’re getting older and no one is getting married.'

"Robertson was shocked to hear her predicament, but his take on the consequences of a no-dating policy was classic Pat Robertson insanity:


"'You know, those who are homosexual will die out because they don’t reproduce,' he said. 'You know, you have to have heterosexual sex to reproduce. Same thing with that church, it’s doomed, it’s going to die out because it’s the most nonsensical thing I’ve heard in a long time.'

"Never mind that homosexuality has been ubiquitous in all species since living things began to walk on four legs. But there’s no point in holding Skeletor’s musings up to any kind of logical scrutiny, so I’ll just stop here.


"Listen to his latest gem in the video..." (http://aattp.org/pat-robertson-gays-will-soon-go-extinct-because-they-dont-reproduce-video/)

Some of them are undecided...



And there may be no hope for them...



Here's another example of people voting against their best interests...



...and here's what they get for not paying attention to what's happening in the world around them:

"Tennessee: Ayn Rand’s vision of paradise."

(Credit: PhotosbyAndy via Shutterstock)

"The southern state ranks dead last in per capita tax revenue, and its low-income families are paying the price.

"If you’re worried about where America is heading, look no further than Tennessee. Its lush mountains and verdant rolling countryside belie a mean-spirited public policy that only makes sense if you believe deeply in the anti-collectivist, anti-altruist philosophy of Ayn Rand. It’s what you get when you combine hatred for government with disgust for poor people.

"Tennessee starves what little government it has, ranking dead last in per capita tax revenue. To fund its minimalist public sector, it makes sure that low-income residents pay as much as possible through heavily regressive sales taxes, which rank 10th highest among all states as a percent of total tax revenues. (For more detailed data see here.)

"As you would expect, this translates into hard times for its public school systems, which rank 48th in school revenues per student and 45th in teacher salaries. The failure to invest in education also corresponds with poverty: the state has the 40th worst poverty rate (15%) and the 13th highest state percentage of poor children (26%).

"Employment opportunities also are extremely poor for the poor. Only 25% have full-time jobs, 45% are employed part-time, and a whopping 30% have no jobs at all.

"So what do you do with all those low-income folks who don’t have decent jobs? You put a good number of them in jail. In fact, only Louisiana, Georgia and New Mexico have higher jail incarceration rates..."

And finally...



So if you don't want your kids screwing up the way you do...



********************

The Low Information Voter is the barrier between Conservatives and common sense, and they may prove to be the main reason Conservatives thrive in a participatory democracy where the citizenry is being driven towards its final destruction.

After several hundred years, it's apparent that the Cons hate all of the basic tenets of democracy -- voting, equal access, and all that goes along with a democratic country -- and if the Low Information Voter doesn't understand this it's time to...

...criminalize Conservatism. - Joyce, Jnr.

Are You Ready For Another Bush In The White House?


Conservatives are big on brotherhood. There were the Hunt brothers, and now we have the Koch brothers and the Bush brothers.

After 8 years under the worst president ever, is America ready for another Bush in the White House?  Is he different than his pa and bro? Aren't we tired of fighting the eternal class warfare between the rich and the rest of us?

The question really is are we ready for another member of a family that has led us down the road to severe recessions, not to mention a little matter of an illegal invasion and the subsequent torture that Dubya still feels no guilt about...



A lot of people say 'No,' which is to be expected in a country that shouldn't like political dynasties or aristocracies after that little run-in with another "George," George III - as we see here...



...and here:

And Dubya's vice-president and chief political advisor apparently put him under the bus by revealing that he knew all about the torture debacle...

"Karl Rove: Bush 'Was Briefed And Intimately Involved' Regarding Torture Decisions (VIDEO)."

Karl Rove: Bush ‘Was Briefed And Intimately Involved’ Regarding Torture Decisions (VIDEO)

"In Karl Rove’s latest appearance on 'Fox News Sunday,' he discussed the use of enhanced interrogation tactics used by the CIA that were recently detailed in a Senate report.

"Rove vehemently defended the use of such tactics as well as the decision to use them by President George W. Bush. He claims Bush knew all along what techniques were being used, and that the report which says he was in the dark and didn’t know what was going on is plainly incorrect.

"Rove said:


"'He’s says in his book, describes how he was briefed and intimately involved in the decision, he made the decision. He was presented I believe twelve techniques. He authorized the use of ten of them, including water-boarding. This isn’t a footnote, and it is illustrative of the problem with this report. They simply didn’t talk to the people, they talked to no one. They simply read documents, and it’s like the Queen of Hearts, you know, verdict first, judgement first, verdict second. They came to a predetermined conclusion before they ever even began...'" (Go here to see the video --> http://reverbpress.com/news/karl-rove-bush-briefed-intimately-involved-regarding-torture-decisions/)

There are some that don't like his politics anyway...

Photo: He's more than just the guy who unleashed the beast of "Stand Your Ground."

He's got opinions too.

I am NOT afraid of this clown one bit.

Then there was that smuggling thing too...

"Bush: "Wife meant to hide shopping spree from me." Mrs. Bush was given two chances to declare the correct amount of tax owed on her Paris purchases."

"TALLAHASSEE -- Gov. Jeb Bush said Monday that his wife misled U.S. Customs officials about $19,000 in new clothing and jewelry she brought into the country because she didn't want him to know how much she had spent on her five-day Paris shopping trip.

"Forced to explain his wife's actions at the Atlanta airport Thursday, Bush said Monday that the episode had disrupted their family life. His wife, Bush said, feels "horrible about this."


"'It was a difficult weekend at our house,' Bush said..."

And his and Katherine Harris's role in the 2000 judicial coup de etat and his extreme Conservative politics aside, he may have OTHER problems...

"Jeb Bush Plans To Run For President As Drug Dealing Charges Emerge."

Jeb Bush

"The big news today that surprises no one is that Jeb Bush is seriously considering a run at the presidency in 2016. He says that he will launch an exploratory effort to test the waters, but that is a well known artifice that politicians commonly use to disguise or delay their true intentions. Bush has been hinting at running for some time and he is keenly aware that there will not be too many other opportunities. If he passes on 2016, and the next president serves two terms, Bush will be 70 before he could run again.


"One of the reasons politicians seek to put off official announcements of candidacy is that they will begin take fire from all sides. Already the conservative wing of the GOP is lashing out against Bush. Another reason they delay announcing is that doing so brings on a whole new level of scrutiny. And Bush’s announcement has produced a perfect example of that risk. A report now circulating in conservative circles is questioning whether Bush was a drug user and dealer while attending prep school at Andover..."

And strangely enough, some of his fellow Cons aren't thrilled with Jeb's running - like this guy...

"Ted Cruz Warns Picking Jeb In 2016 Means Hillary Becomes President."

"In response to the news that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) had taken a big step toward running for president in 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-TX) response was a warning: if the right nominates a moderate Republican, Hillary Clinton will become president.


"'If we nominate another candidate in the mold of a Bob Dole or a John McCain or a Mitt Romney — and let me be clear, all three of those men, they’re good men, they’re honorable men, they’re decent men, they’re men of character, they’re war heroes — but what they did didn’t work,' Cruz told Politico. 'It did not succeed. And if we nominate another candidate in that same mold, the same voters who stayed home in 2008 and 2012 will stay home in 2016, and Hillary Clinton is the next president...'"

Most of us fear that Jeb is just another Dubya...



But let's let Jeb speak for himself...







But though many of us are curious about emails during the Shiavo debacle an the emails to and from Katherine Harris in 2000, but he probably scrubbed them...

"What to look for in Jeb Bush's 250,000 emails."



"Jeb Bush has now announced that he is forming a political action committee and is going to explore a run for the presidency. This is big news because Bush can command attention, particularly of those who are interested in writing checks to presidential candidates. That means, at the very least, if you are one of the candidates still seriously thinking about running for president, you have to let those who you were courting know that they shouldn't fall in love with Bush just yet. Mitt Romney left the impression recently with one of his backers I talked to that he would not consider another run if Bush entered the race.


"But perhaps the bigger news from Jeb Bush came this weekend, when he announced that he is releasing 250,000 emails from his two terms as Florida's governor..."

So the answer to our question is (drum roll,please)...



********************



One of the questions some might ask is: If Dubya was found guilty of the most horrendous war crimes in American history, would Jeb pardon him?

I think we know the answer.

And what happens to crime families when justice prevails?

I think we know the answer to that one too, the key word being "justice."

It would be a lot better for the country and the world if we never let the Bush Crime Family get into office again...and better for all of us if we just criminalize Conservatism - Joyce, Jnr.
