Democrats Thrive on Lies and Hoaxes

Without lies and hoaxes, Democrats would have nothing to gin up fear among their base

Published

on

The top Internet companies including Google, Facebook, Amazon, Wikipedia, Apple, and to some degree Microsoft, are all founded and/or run by multi-billionaires.

As we’ve witnessed, they manipulate their sites to perpetuates lies, and to disparage or silence conservative views. They inflate the prominence and popularity of Leftist views.

Ask yourself, if Leftist views could stand on their own merit why would the Internet giants need to constantly prop them up, while perpetually deflating the other side?

To Our Delight or Displeasure

Virtually everything that Joe Biden, puppet-in chief, does receives either high praise or benign neglect (and here we’re including Leftist/Marxist policies, kowtowing to enemies, stumbles, and endless gaffs). Virtually everything that Trump did as President was to the displeasure of Internet giants and major news sites.

True journalist Sharyl Attkisson keeps a running list of the media ‘mistakes’ in covering Donald Trump — now up to 156! She says, “Repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are ‘lies’ when they are matters of opinion, or when the truth between conflicting sources is unknowable; taking Trump’s statements and events out of context; reporting secondhand accounts against Trump without attribution as if they’re established fact; relying on untruthful, conflicted sources; and presenting reporter opinions in news stories,without labeling them as opinions.” So true!

As we’ve witnessed, the Left eagerly perpetrated lie after lie about Trump, and hoax after hoax, and legions of under-informed citizens only caught the sound bites: The lie that George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, and other minor players in the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to throw the 2016 election in Trump’s favor, and the mega-hoax that Trump himself conspired with Russia.

The hoax that an actor, Jussie Smollett, was attacked by two white men wearing MAGA hats; the hoax that Covington Catholic High School students disparaged a Native American; and the hoax that racial slurs were found on black cadets message boards at the Air Force Academy preparatory school.

The Big Lie

On August 11, 2017 protests turned violent in Charlottesville, VA. Since then, the Left’s media machine has worked non-stop to create and perpetuate the “Big Lie” about what President Trump said. Joe Biden ‘campaigned’ using the big lie and still spews it. Yet, the BS that Trump praised white supremacists is totally at odds with the truth:

“Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group,” he said, verbatim. “But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides.”

“You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me, I saw the same pictures you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

Days later Trump said, verbatim, “Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK,  neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

The Left’s lie, led by Joe Biden, has been perpetuated to this day, despite the irrefutable evidence to the contrary. The Left wants you to believe that Donald Trump is so bad a person that he should not be allowed to run for any future office.

Don’t Take My Word for It

Democrats want you to think that Trump is a racist who harms black people. Before he ran for president, however, he was honored or cited on many occasions by the NAACP and other African-American groups. Amazingly, that all changed the moment he ran for president.

In less than five minutes, Dr. Ben Carson, former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development laid out President Trump’s extraordinary measures that  improved the lives and livelihoods of Black Americans.

Dr. Carson said that if Donald Trump is a racist, he’s done a bad job at it. Most who watched the video quickly abandoned the notion that President Trump was anything other than a most benevolent president to minorities. Indeed, he wanted them to succeed and to be part of the economic mainstream

Bearing False Witness

All through the 2020 presidential election season, assorted parties accused the President of this and that, non-stop. Why? Democrats’ very existence is grounded in lies, manipulation, and hoaxes, and they have many weapons in their arsenal.

Most of what’s featured on CNN and MSNBC, among other news organizations, represents a lie, a highly biased view, or a hoax. The list of lies and hoaxes is nearly endless: The hoax currently dominating in mainstream media surveys indicates that Trump incited the Capitol riot. He did not.

If the truth is on your side, do you need to doctor the evidence? Christine Blasey Ford was violated by Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh? It’s likely that she never met him.

African-Americans and Hispanics were not favoring the GOP in record numbers? Guess again. Record numbers of illegal aliens died seeking to reach our borders? Such numbers occurred during the Obama years.

Pure Garbage

Without lies and hoaxes, the Left in general, and Democrats in particular would have nothing to gin up fear among their base, and nothing on which to stand. So, they create falsehoods and elaborate hoaxes that the media breathlessly air.

The once honorable Washington Post published a pure-garbage feature titled, “How white supremacy infected Christianity and the Republican Party.”

Now, several decades into their lies and hoax creation, many people now see them for what they are. Granted, Democrats fool some of the people all of the time. As each hoax is exposed, however, more people – and all 75+ million Trump voters — see Democrats for who they are: The party of hoaxes.

Education

Make Universities Accountable for Predatory Student Loan Abuse

Published

on

The Biden administration is still talking about delivering on the President’s promise to relieve student loan debt for many Americans. There is continuing discussion on how much debt should be forgiven, how to pay for it, and whether it is fair to all those who have diligently and painfully worked to already pay off their own student loans. After all, if you’re going to eliminate student debt to buy votes, why just limit it to student debt?

Unfortunately for Biden, according to numerous sources including National Review, the executive branch has no generalized power to forgive any amount of student debt. Even Nancy Pelosi confirmed simply that “the president can’t do it. That’s not even a discussion.” The Department of Education came to the same verdict, determining that the executive branch “does not have the statutory authority to cancel, compromise, discharge, or forgive, on a blanket or mass basis, principal balances of student loans, and/or to materially modify the repayment amounts or terms thereof.”

Of course, even if he had the authority, forgiving student debt doesn’t make the debt go away. Reality has a way of breaking into such “freeloading” dreams. It’s pay me now, or somebody else pay me later. But why should some future taxpayer pay off anyone else’s student debt?

Whatever happened to wise warnings of “student beware.” When you get an education and agree to pay the tuition, you ought to realize that you must at some point pay for that education. You signed on the bottom line. Face your real-world responsibilities. Hopefully, you picked a degree major that will ensure a career capable of paying off your loans. Students clearly have some responsibility, but what about the universities that took advantage of the money coming from those loans?

After all, there is ample evidence that student tuitions exploded far faster than inflation when government funds became readily available for student loans. Complaints of excessive tuition increases by students trapped in their programs tended to be met with a less than caring response—pound sand!

Since 2008, the tuition cost or a four-year college degree has increased nearly 25%. In that same period, student debt has doubled, increasing by 107%. 2015 study found that a dollar of subsidized student loans results in a published tuition increase of 58 cents at a typical university, An NBER paper suggests that changes to federal student loans are more than sufficient to explain tuition increases at private nonprofit colleges. And a 2014 study found that for-profit colleges eligible for federal student aid charged tuition 78% higher than that of similar but aid-ineligible institutions.

In short, there is no doubt that tuition was rising faster than the inflation level. Evidence has been clear for decades. In 1987, Secretary of Education William J. Bennett argued that “increases in financial aid in recent years have enabled colleges and universities to raise their tuition, confident that Federal loan subsidies would help cushion the increase.”

Bennett pointed out in 1987 that federal student aid had risen 57 percent since 1980, while inflation had been 26 percent. A 2020 analysis by the Congressional Budget Office brought the numbers up to date: “Between 1995 and 2017, the balance of outstanding federal student loan debt increased more than sevenfold, from $187 billion to $1.4 trillion (in 2017 dollars).” What is the lesson? The more federal aid to students is available colleges raise tuition more. Salaries rise and bureaucracies expand. There are more courses, more dorms, dining halls, lavish recreational centers, and more money for endowments.

Far too many students find that once they begin their education, their schools raise the tuition at such a high rate that their debt explodes. The university builds their endowment, and the “trapped” student is compelled to finish what they started at a cost they did not expect to have to pay. In such a situation, should not the university be responsible for any increased cost above the increase in cost of living during the same time? It’s time for universities to take responsibility for their share of student debt.

The universities that benefited from these loans should have a part in footing the bill. That means universities that raked in millions to inflate endowments should be holding the bag for those who can’t afford to pay their loans. With universities holding hundreds of billions of dollars in tax-free endowments, any government program to relieve student debt should be completely dependent on taxing those university endowments.

It’s time to counter the Democrats’ vote-buying scheme by making lasting changes to the student loan process. That means putting universities on the hook for their predatory behavior. That will go much further than a temporary payoff that does nothing to solve what is causing the problem.

Tucker: Why are they so angry?

There’s no Constitutional requirement to have respect for anybody in the US government. In fact, in a free country you are encouraged to disagree. You are a citizen, you have that inherent right. But, no more.

Published

Tucker gives an extended list of several people who were arrested or had their homes raided, without explanation, for no crime. Highlights include:

“Why have a political debate when you can just arrest people who disagree with you? And that has happened, far below the media radar since the day Joe Biden was elected, and tonight we want to show you … a litany, a list of Americans who have been arrested, detained by federal law enforcement on the orders of the Biden administration, not because they committed recognizable crimes but because they disagreed with the political aims of the Biden administration.”

“Ooh, Trumps a fascist, remember that? Did Trump’s DOJ raid the homes of a lot of journalists who embarrassed his children? No, you don’t remember that, because it didn’t happen. But Joe Biden’s justice department has done that, and then they kept going.”

“We don’t arrest people for ignoring congressional subpoenas, especially when they cite executive privilege, a principal that has a long history in American history, so no, we’ve never done that, but we can do it now because it was ‘an insurrection’, an insurrection that wasn’t armed, wasn’t planned, it didn’t actually insurrect anything, but it was still an insurrection. Now you’re beginning to see why it’s been so important from the very first day for the media to describe what happened on January 6 not as a riot, but as an insurrection, because if it’s an insurrection, they can violate your civil rights.”

“So, a decade ago the Obama administration was caught sending automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels and Congress wanted to know more about this. Eric Holder, then the attorney general, had a key role in this, ‘operation fast and furious’, you may remember it. So, they subpoena’d him, and he ignored the subpoena, and the media applauded, he was taking a noble position. But when Steve Bannon or Peter Navarro tried to do something like that, they went to jail. Again, we had this exact same thing happen in public ten years ago. A federal judge ruled that Holder’s privilege claim was not legitimate, and he was still never arrested, but the rules have changed. Why is that?”

“There’s no Constitutional requirement to have respect for anybody in the US government. In fact, in a free country you are encouraged to disagree. You are a citizen, you have that inherent right. But, no more. The media think you should be sent to jail if you show disrespect, and so of course, with no media to push back against unconstitutional overreach, the justice department kept going.”
