Again today, more lies.

The president of the United States was in Iowa. As he pandered to the paid attendees in the photo op, He complained That GOP Vice presidential Candidate and leader of the House Budget Committee Paul Ryan didn’t pass a farm bill to help the suffering farmers in Iowa. One problem…. Ryan and the House of Representatives PASSED a farm bill to help out the Iowa farmers 2 weeks ago. obama just lied because it sounded good I guess. Certainly he had to know the house passed a bill 2 weeks ago……. you would think. But yet today again, he lied right to our face.

Last week, more lies. “the American auto industry has come roaring back and GM is number one again. So now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs not just in the auto industry, but in every industry”.

GM still owes 42 billion to the U.S. taxpayers according to the inspector General and it’s company’s stock has hit an all time low. The company is in turmoil. The regular bankruptcy laws would have kept G.M. open and operating but it would have forced the company to renegotiate the outrageous labor contracts the UAW has extracted over the years. That’s what killing G.M..  But the obama bailout ensured the legacy cost and labor union contracts were funded before the bond holders were paid. That is the exact opposite of what a bankruptcy court would have done. And in the long run, G.M. would have been much more healthy without the huge labor cost and legacy labor burden. It’s only a matter of time until G.M. is broke and forced into legitimate bankrupcy. The taxpayers will be stiffed and the situation made much worse by the obama interventions. Oh, and G.M. is exempt from federal taxes on it’s first 45 billion in profits, if it makes any profit.Tax cuts for the richest american corporations anyone ? Hello…….?!?

The biggest lie is this healthcare lie. In a joint session of congress he squawked

” Then there’s the problem of rising cost….insurance premiums have gone up three times faster than wages….our health care system is placing an unsustainable burden on taxpayers. When health care costs grow at the rate they have, it puts greater pressure on programs like Medicare and Medicaid. If we do nothing to slow these skyrocketing costs, we will eventually be spending more on Medicare and Medicaid than every other government program combined….Now, these are the facts. Nobody disputes them.”

Healthaffairs.org disputes them   http://content.healthaffairs.org/content/31/1/208.abstract

“US health spending grew more slowly in 2009 and 2010—at rates of 3.8 percent and 3.9 percent, respectively—than in any other years during the fifty-one-year history of the National Health Expenditure Accounts. In 2010 extraordinarily slow growth in the use and intensity of services led to slower growth in spending for personal health care.”

There are several other publication that dispute obama’s claim. Too numerous to cite but easily found . All you have to do is look. http://reason.com/archives/2012/08/06/the-health-care-spending-claim-that-made  “Even The man who was President Obama’s White House budget director, Peter Orszag, disputes them.  He said  “The rising cost of health care in the U.S. has been slowing over the past few years.”

The reason to nationalize health care is not for health care. The reason is that it fundamentally changes the relationship between the citizen and the state. The person who is beholden on the state to provide health services for them or  their family is a subject, not a citizen. A free born citizen of a republic can choose his best course, choose his family’s best care. And I dare say choose to pay or not for that care. A subject is forced to accept the decisions of the state and is obliged to tolerate any burden placed on the subject for such services. The Orwellian named “affordable care act” is the same system that has failed the U.K , Canada, France,and others. It is a demonstrable failure, but obama drones on and on about it. Lie after lie after dispicable lie.

Who or what permits obama to  lie to our face, with impunity ?  A willing accomplice is the state controlled media who is so invested in the obama success story that it willfully ignores the blatant lies that spew from this administration and their cronies and sycophants. The networks have become propaganda machines for the state.

The result of this intercourse of statism and  mass propaganda is  fascism . It’s a soft fascism, but it is a tyranny none the less. The administration is bragging about its utter failures like they are successes and promising to bring upon the people more of that failure. The administration says outright lies and the sycophantic media accepts it , repeats it and fails to investigate the truth thereby failing  in its duty to the citizens .

obama does this all with a joke and a smile. A contrived good humor and jovial mannerisms. He comes off as harmless. The media tell us how likeable he is. How cool he is. How smart he is. How historic he is.

Whats obvious is how shallow and dishonest he is.
