Lies, lies and more lies! Once again this administration appears to set up yet another lie for the citizen’s consumption. Before it becomes clear, we must provide just a smidgen, (Obama term) of enlightenment.
The word “statistics” is interesting. Anyone that has completed a course in “Statistics 101” is aware of a fundamental. Given the desired outcome, even a novice statistician can come up with the desired “statistical fact”. The source of the “facts”; which “facts are included” and how the “facts” were gathered are all part of the influence for the pre-determined statistical outcome. When the Administration and the Media want to mislead the citizens, they know how to succeed with their “Statistical Facts”.
As just one example: U.S. unemployment over the past decade, (and prior). This administration presents the statistic of unemployment as now at 4.6%. Great! But what the Administration ignores and covers up is the “Employment Participation Rate” that is neared 62% which amounts to a factual unemployment rate closer to 10%. Confused? If so, you’ve been “Grubered”.
Another example is the recent election. The desired outcome had been pre-determined many months before the election. At the Administration’s desire and direction, the Media promoted a foregone winner to influence the citizens to vote for their “winner”. Every media source promoted that there was “no path for their opponent to win” the election for delegates. Their “statistics” guaranteed their pre-determined winner.
Now the Administration and Main Stream Media must find an excuse that will bless their statistical lie. They blame it on Russia in hopes over of overturning the electorate in particular and all citizens in general. Attorney General Loretta Lynch; there is “No evidence of Technical Interference”. Back in October, Director of the FBI James Comey disputed that Russia had hacked the American election system. Also in October, the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper “didn’t expect Russian Interference”. This was before their candidate lost the election. Oh, how the election brought a different opinion.
I agree that this subject deserves investigation. Obama wants it finished before January 20, his departure as President. I wonder why that date is critical. But who are the key people that will lead and contribute to this “fact finding” investigation for Obama?
Obama assigned as top investigator, James Clapper, Director of National Security. Key in his name and one of the first statements is; “On November 17th, Director James Clapper told congress there was no basis to identify Russia’s involvement in the DNC and Podesta email leaks”. Of course, Mr. Clapper has every right to change his mind, particularly if ordered by the President when he was selected to head up the investigation.
But to go further, key in: “Clapper lied to Wyden”. There is lots of spin on this one, but questions remain about Clapper lying under oath on live CSPAN to Senator Ron Wyden during a Senate hearing. The lie continued even after Senator Wyden rephrased the question in the hope that Clapper would be truthful. Mr. Clapper has never been so much as disciplined on paper for what is obvious perjury. Could it be that because he is a loyal puppy to the administration and has proven capability to lie that this is the reason he is in charge of the investigation?
James Comey has proven to be more than an independent Director of the FBI. Over the last six months he has become a spineless political windshield wiper. He has stepped from investigator to also make decisions on behalf of Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department. That is of course with her cowardly permission so as not to dirty herself with carrying out her sworn functions and responsibilities. She, like Eric Holder, practices first loyalty to the President, not to the people as intended.
Loretta Lynch, Attorney General that with her predecessor Eric Holder has brought a new title to that Department. More and more we are made aware that the title “Department of Injustice” is becoming more and more predominate. Just before Comey took over her responsibilities by elevating from Investigator to include Prosecutor, she secretly met on her plane on the tarmac with the husband of the person being investigated. It had to be pre-planned. Their required flight plans, including departure from beginning, arrival at Phoenix, time of departure and to where had to be submitted; and including any changes are a matter of record but NEVER investigated. But that data might hint at a conspiracy and embarrassment.
These are only three key people that will investigate the Russian influence into the recent election. Could it be that the un-denied Podesta emails need a diversionary tactic and blaming the Russians rather than internal DNC corruption is the path? Is the intent to cover the embarrassment of the main-stream media for being so biased and blind that they reported in error? Could it be that the Administration and Main-stream media’s statistics will be exposed as frauds upon the American people? Once again, will the American citizenry be pumped full of false statistics and pre-determined facts? It is certain that this investigation is intended to source from Crapitol Hill in the District of Corruption and be supported by the vilest of the Media. Completion before January 20 will allow Obama to call it to an end so that some of the errors of his administration to hear the people can be side-stepped. Yes, this will likely be another in a long list of self-serving garbage.
Pay attention to verifiable facts vs. statistics. Absorb nothing until it is verified. Accept that most of the Media no longer provide facts. Many of them have the appearance of graduating from the Joseph Goebbels’ School of Journalism and are just as dangerous to the gullible.
I have printed out stickers that I place on all outgoing mail. They say, “The United States of America Where in God We Trust but no longer the Government”. I pray that we CHANGE the direction of our country back toward Honor, Honesty and Integrity. These three attributes have been missing from our government and their return demands that we join together and demand their return as foundation to this government.
