Three Lies the Left needs to Stop Telling


The parade of Democratic politics is finally being exposed for what it is – a pompous, yet empty display of purported finery, which has been largely applauded and accepted by those who refuse to see that much of what they believe is based in bias not fact. Yet now the Democratic “emperors” are finally being seen as wearing nothing but empty promises and piety. And it is long overdue.

Now that the charade is over, there are three lies the left needs to stop telling:

Lie number one is the inflated narrative of Russian collusion, which has now been deflated by the release of the Mueller report. Not only was this “witch hunt” unfounded at its beginning, but it was also tainted, biased and politically motivated in the middle, and in the end was exposed as a complete waste of taxpayer money. It was a two-year distraction without merit at best, and potentially an attempted coup at its worst.

Though time will tell what additional revelations will still come as a result of this report, the “collusion delusion,” at least as far as Donald Trump is concerned, is over. The political elites and media talking heads had it wrong all along – dead wrong. They are seething that their concentrated efforts didn’t uncover anything worthy of impeachment and are now left holding nothing but their bruised pride. The American people are moving on. It’s time for the mainstream media and a few outlying members of Congress to do the same.

Lie number two is that there is no crisis at our southern border. “It’s fabricated," says the left. Donald Trump has “manufactured this crisis." Nothing could be further from the truth. Not only are we being overrun by thousands of people who are arriving with no documentation to prove who they are, but much worse, we are turning a blind eye to human trafficking – right here at home. In fact, we may actually be facilitating it by incentivizing migrants to arrive with children. If people arrive in a "family unit," they are processed differently and given priority entry. Without documentation, we have to take the word of the child and the “parent” as to their identity, although a few select border control crossings are starting to use DNA testing to determine a familial connection.

Who knows how many children have been taken from their families and used by smugglers to walk with unrelated adults across the border and then taken right back to Mexico in order to be used by the next smuggler. We may be complicit in the very act we accuse countries all around the world of wrongly engaging in.

Where is the outrage about this from the left? This needs to stop. Immediately. We need to end this tsunami of illegal migration and start legally controlling the wave of immigrants again. Regardless of how often we are told by the left it’s not an issue, we have eyes to see the footage of the migrant caravans, and are smart enough to know that when we incentivize people to break our own laws, they will. And they are. The left knows it. Why won’t they tell us the truth?

And lie number three is that America is ready to move toward socialism. As the 2020 Democratic candidates step over themselves to be the one furthest to the left, much of the rest of the nation watches this rush to irrelevance and wonders who will be buying what they’re selling? Even Joe Biden, the supposed Democratic frontrunner, can’t make a compelling argument as to why he should be our next president, nor can any of the other nearly two dozen candidates.

Why? Because when they speak of “changing directions” or “undoing the Trump era," I’m not exactly sure who wants that. If we look sheerly at the statistics of what has been achieved economically in the past few short years, it is truly remarkable. And even the president’s greatest critics know it.

The average, hard-working, middle-class voter, doesn't want a change of direction. They don’t want to return to the Obama-Biden era of more government control, increased regulation, higher taxes and additional intrusion into their lives and businesses. What they actually want is more of what they are getting now – rising wages, energy independence, nearly full employment, fairer trade globally and a national economy that is booming – and is the envy of the world. The left wants less of that. The rest of us want more of that – much more – at least five years more!

So it’s time for the left to stop the lies and start telling the truth. About the special counsel. About immigration. About socialism. About the record-breaking Trump economy. These lies are the modern day snake oil of the left – and fewer and fewer people are buying it.

Put the past obvious criminals such as Hillary, Obama and their little friends in prison. Reduce governments intrusion into the lives of the people just as Trump has been doing. Hand the power over to the people again. Remember; the government works for the people. Establish a law where the people can petition for removal and prosecute and imprison any politician who does not uphold the constitution, lies or votes against the will of the people. Establish a flat income Tax! Better yet- realize that income tax is unconstitutional and abolish it. Back off and leave people alone!

You really believe trump's government isn't intruding on people's lives?

Trump is meddling with the lives of millions of Americans...and those of the rest of the world.
Ask gay folk.
Ask women.
Ask people who have no healthcare.
Ask people working for minimum wage.
Ask people who pay taxes.
Ask Black people.
Ask Native Americans.
Ask Veterans.
Ask teachers, nurses and doctors.
Ask the school pupils who've been through mass shootings.
And, last of all, if you can even find it!... ask your conscience...though I doubt you have one

The tax you pay on income is the price you pay to work; the tax on profits, the price you pay for being successful; and the tax on capital gains, the price you pay for taking risks that work.

Under this plan the entire federal income tax code is junked. In its place would be a single rate of 17%, which would apply after generous exemptions for adults and children. A family of four, for instance, would pay no federal income tax on its first $52,800 of salary and only 17% on amounts above that level. There would be no tax on savings. The death tax would be eliminated; one should be allowed to leave this world unmolested by the IRS.

Everyone would get a tax cut, and we wouldn’t get caught up in a sterile debate over who's being helped and who's being hurt. All of us would come out ahead.

bb you state the reason to implement a flat tax very well.

the bs that tx an other liberal dems offer is proof it is based on sound footing. THEY DONt LIKE IT.

the late jack kemp is the father of flat tax. he was way ahead of his time. sadly he could not get any one to listen.

we have seen how the irs works. lois lerner an others. a flat tax would tear aprat the irs and put the so called door minders at the irs vault out of work.

flat tax will happen. same as repeal of row v wade.

Well at least Mr Trump didn't tell the Russians that after the next election he would have more flexibility like Mr Obama did. Do you remember Mr Obama telling Mr Romney that Russia posed no threat to us? Do you remember Mr Obama saying he told Putin to "knock it off?" Washington Post headlines read "Trump has not been 'soft' on Russia. He's been tougher than Obama."

You need to quit that continuous partying as it has made you senile.

1 .. Russia did collude to prop up their puppet in the White House and everybody knows it. Many of us saw the lies first hand on social media, and later found out the lies were perpetrated by Russia.

2 .. there is no crisis at the southern border that a legitimate President wouldn't be able to handle. The only reason trump needs a wall is for 2020 elections.

3 .. stop hiding behind the word socialism and call it what it is ... healthcare. And college WAS free back when America was great.

Let us be clear, college was never “free” in the united states, but state schools were tuition-free. They charged fees for room and board. US colleges, starting with the first college Harvard in 1636, have a long history of charging fees. This was even true for the University of Virginia; the first state school meant to be tuition-free from its inception, founded in 1825 by Thomas Jefferson.

Seriously Block, you need to find a legitimate source for information.

In California (that's USA) I earned my Associates Degree in my local Junior College FREE OF CHARGE .. that means tuition free. I bought the books.

Tuition was free to residents .. already told you that in another blog ..

Over the past two years, with the encouragement of the Trump Administration’s red-tape cutting policies and the tax cut and reform law passed in December 2017, manufacturers added 467,000 jobs, more than six times the 73,000 manufacturing jobs added in Obama’s last two years.

If your remarks constitute sobriety, God spare me from it because you are the silliest old fool and panderer on the site. And the most insecure in your masculinity.

But I and others on the site are not that interested in your troubles. My concern at the moment is the inability of the left to tolerate other points of view. The phrase "liberal fascism" has been around for a while but is now a real threat, as the Democratic Party has become a parody of itself.

And SFF mirrors the body politic, dominated by the female Furies and a handful of aging counterculturalists among the men.
