Tracing the Origin Of Lies

Lies come from son where and liar interviews always yield information.

Anyone who says not to bother to interview a liar does not understand human nature, nor language.

Lies all have a genesis.  Although caution is advised for advanced analysis, 'leakage' can be indicated.  Without proper application of principle, it quickly degenerates to arbitrary interpretation.  

Some are obvious:  

"George and I don't believe Caylee's in the woods, or anything."  Cindy Anthony

"Contrary to rumors floating around out there, I have been cooperating with the Waterville Police."  Justin DiPietro, father of Ayla Reynolds.  

Hillary Clinton said she deleted 30,000 emails that were personal.  She needed to reveal what "personal" meant to attempt to satisfy the public. 

She chose two topics, "yoga" and "Chelsea's wedding."

We take note of the two choices; she had 30,000 deleted emails, and her mind went to to "yoga" and "Chelsea's wedding."

Although this lie shields the massive amount of criminal activity and conspiracy to commit further crimes by her, it is interesting to note that as both Wikileaks and the government release emails, we learn:

Chelsea's wedding was, at least in part,  paid for by the Clinton Foundation.   When she quickly made this attempt to deceive, her speech must enter the brain under duress:  how to avoid experiential memory while still keeping up a  facade of flowing information.

What has been needed to be deleted?   What would she not want the American public to know?

Although there is much shocking information revealed, among them:  
ISIS and Clinton were both funded by Saudi Arabia; showing similar investment in the two organizations as serving the Saudi's best interests.  

A "private" email to Chelsea, under another name, gave insider information for Chelsea's husband to make money in trading.  Recall the bizarre and illegal way Hillary did the same, decades ago.

6 Trips to a known pedophile's private island. 

A massive criminal enterprise of using a foundation to take massive bribes on both a national and international theater.  

A compromised personal health disqualifying her from any employment.  

A conspiracy with main stream media to cheat on debates and to give positive coverage to her.

A 'rigged system' in which Bernie Sanders would have no tangible opportunity to win the nomination.  

Collusion with Barak Obama to conceal information from the American public on issues from the private server, itself designed to conceal, up to the nuclear arming of America's most vocal enemy, Iran. 


When one lies, the words chosen often reveal the truth.

                  We never disregard the words of a liar.

One "dead broke" who stole $170,000 of furniture, cutlery and other such items, who can well afford the same, steals without seeming reason.  As the desensitization process continues, so does the intensity and scope of the crimes.  This is what is suggested in the emails.

It is incredible that any voter support her. I was saddened when I read Director Comey's memo to his agents regarding the new emails. His statement, " I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record" said it all. He was going through the motions and had no intention delivering justice.

Given Mrs. Clinton's history, the repercussions of her elevation to the presidency will be harsh and likely irreversible. Harsh because she detests normal Americans does not care about the laws or structures of the nation she is overthrowing. A moral and religious America represents all that '60s Marxist radicals have hated in their atheistic pursuit of theft and confiscation from those who followed the rules, whether moral or legal. The effects will be irreversible because she will institutionalize her hatred and will enshrine through amnesty our invasion by illegals, ensuring in the next four years that this was the last election it was possible for a Republican to ever win.



And then the real changes will come. Expect most forms of public opposition to be deemed "hate speech." Strict controls over media content will be implemented on the same "hate speech" basis. Anti-white racism, which has been made de facto policy, will burgeon into something truly stigmatizing. Political preferences for certain groups or interests will be converted by law into preferential treatment. People will be encouraged to rat out their neighbors and friends, whose objection and resistance will be seen as extremism and dangerous "anti-government" activities. Religion will be made subject to political rules, and "conscience" will be outlawed as a basis for resistance. Mrs. Clinton has already openly said, consistent with Mr. Soros's demands, that religion must be made compliant with policy, so religion must change, not policy.



We will be controlled, all of which has happened wherever there has been conversion to totalitarian statism, and which is happening here and now. It is merely a question of degree, subject to whether we remain free to oppose our forced subjugation.



In short, what will be forever lost should Mrs. Clinton win this election is our right to object and resist the increasing tide of state authority and control over every aspect of our lives, requiring our obeisance to the agenda and ideology of a conquering invader. The American left is American in name only. If they succeed, they will eradicate the last vestiges of what has made us who we are: the freedom and right to object, to resist, and to change what does not work.



Vote as if your right to live, to worship, to speak, and to ever be heard again, that is your right to be a free and independent American citizen, depends on this election, because it does.

Here's how to verify if a wikileaks email is truly a wikileaks email. There are some fakes floating around.

1. See if the post has a direct link to the actual email and follow it. It should look something like this: https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/52046

2. If you don't have the link, you can copy some text from the email and search for it on wikileaks.org. Once you go to wikileaks.org, choose the archive:
- Podesta emails
- DNC emails
- Hillary Clinton emails

3. Enter the text in the search box to find the email. You may need to search on a large amount of text to narrow the search results.

I verified that the email Peter quoted is on Wikileaks here: https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/52046

EXCLUSIVE: Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett has convinced President Obama to FIRE FBI director James Comey after the election

After persistent prodding by Valerie Jarrett, President Obama has agreed to fire America's top cop
A White House source familiar with the decision says Jarrett and the president held lengthy discussions over the past several days about the political and legal ramifications of firing FBI director
The president was furious with Comey for reopening the FBI's investigation of Hillary's emails
But he was reluctant to move against Comey for fear that it would open him to charges of obstruction of justice.
It has yet to be decided who will wield the hatchet—the president, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, or someone else

Emboldened Autocrats

China

As Secretary of State, Clinton presided over a policy known as the “pivot to Asia,” meant to increase American visibility in the continent and, in particular, bring China and the United States closer together. Clinton publicly supported the “one China policy” – China’s way of imposing itself on the Republic of China (Taiwan), Tibet, Hong Kong, and the western Xinjiang region – and encouraged China to buy up U.S. debt.

Following her tenure as Secretary of State, Clinton expressed support for incoming president Xi Jinping in private. In a 2013 private speech now public thanks to the organization Wikileaks, Clinton said it was “good news” that Xi was “doing much more to try to assert his authority” than his predecessor, Hu Jintao.

Since then, Xi has declared himself the “core” leader, comparable to Mao Zedong; colonized the maritime territory of six nations in the South China Sea, used state violence to crack down on the nation’s skyrocketing Christian population; and engaged in multiple Communist Party purges, citing unspecified “corruption.”

Cuba

Hillary Clinton has loudly supported President Obama’s policy to “normalize” relations with Cuba, and her associates maintain close ties to the Washington, DC community that benefits from relations with the Castro regime. President Obama’s “normalization” has triggered a boom in violent arbitrary arrests of political dissidents and a new wave of refugees seeking to leave the communist dictatorship before the United States changes its mind about treating them as political refugees.

Iran

Hillary Clinton’s work to embolden the Iranian Islamic dictatorship began early in her term as Secretary of State. During Clinton’s tenure, the Obama administration all but ignored the Iranian Green Revolution, a series of protests against then-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. Clinton’s State Department rejected requests for funding from group’s doing the work on the ground of documenting Khamenei’s rampant human rights abuses against unarmed protesters.

The Obama administration’s crowning achievement in securing the Shiite caliphate’s rule came years later, of course, in the form of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or the Iran nuclear deal. While the parties signed the deal long after her departure from State, Clinton was responsible for “naming the negotiators for the nuclear talks and approving two major U.S. concessions to Iran in 2011 – guaranteeing Iran the right to enrich uranium and agreeing to close the IAEA’s investigation of Iran’s past nuclear weapons work,” according to the Center for Security Policy’s Fred Fleitz.

North Korea

Secretary of State Clinton approached North Korea with a policy known as “strategic patience,” which one expert described as “sitting back and watching while North Korea continued to build up its nuclear weapons program.” North Korea has detonated two nuclear weapons since Clinton has been out of office, in part emboldened by “strategic patience” and in part, many argued after the fourth of five tests, emboldened by the Iranian nuclear deal.

Anonymous said...

Turkey

In her memoir, Hard Choices, Clinton reserved praise from President (then-Prime Minister) Recep Tayyip Erdogan that sounded not unlike her optimistic profiling of Xi Jinping. Erdogan, she said, was “an ambitious, forceful, devout and effective politician.” Of his government, she said Erdogan was correct to seek “zero problems with neighbors.” Wikileaks-released emails have since revealed that Erdogan sought to buy influence through campaign donations to the Clintons.

During his tenure as president, Erdogan has advanced the cause of Islamism in Turkey to unprecedented levels since the rule of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, going so far as to allow Islamic prayers in the Hagia Sophia, an iconic Christian landmark. He has also conducted mass arrests of political enemies and shut down numerous media outlets who dare challenge his government. Last Friday, Erdogan’s government arrested the leaders of the People’s Democratic Party (HDP) – a pro-Kurdish, pro-Christian center-left party – in a midnight raid on dubious “terrorism” charges.

Venezuela

Clinton served as Secretary of State during the tail end of the tenure of socialist dictator Hugo Chávez, who died shortly after she departed. Chávez presided over a bleak time in Venezuelan history: nationalizing private industries, cozying up to enabling autocrats in Cuba, Iran, and China, and using violence to suppress anti-socialist opposition.

In 2009, the Secretary of State defended negotiating with Chávez and fostering diplomacy with him, telling a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that the U.S. should dismiss Chávez’s ties to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and communist China because “We’ve isolated him, so he’s gone elsewhere. I mean, he’s a very sociable guy.”

Venezuela’s economy is now in freefall as dozens of prisoners of conscience languish in prison under Chávez’s hand-picked successor, Nicolás Maduro. Maduro’s management of his own government has been so abysmal that, with Clinton gone, President Obama has declared Venezuela a national security threat.

Emboldened Corruption

Algeria

The government of Algeria is involved in one of the most egregious corruption schemes of the Clinton Foundation: offering the Clintons a $500,000 check. “The donation reportedly coincided with an intense effort by Algeria to lobby Mrs Clinton’s State Department over US criticism of its human rights record,” The Telegraph notes.

Brazil

Earlier this year, Brazil impeached and ousted its socialist president Dilma Rousseff over a variety of fiscal improprieties, including the misrepresentation of government funds to lure investors. Triggering protests that numbered in the millions, however, was Rousseff’s deep involvement in something known as “Operation Car Wash,” a sprawling corruption scheme in which dozens of government officials took millions in kickbacks from projects commissioned by the state-run oil company Petrobras.

Clinton had longtime ties to Rousseff as Secretary of State, and praised “her commitment to openness, transparency, her fight against corruption is setting a global standard” in 2012.

Haiti

The Clinton Foundation’s exploitation of Haiti’s poverty and the damage caused by a 2010 earthquake has left many of those nation’s leaders disgusted enough to speak up about the corruption. An operation to aid earthquake victims run by the Clintons was also found to have “played a role” in an unprecedented Cholera outbreak in that country.

Anonymous said...

Russia

Clinton has attempted to convince the American people that her arch-rival in the presidential election is Russian President Vladimir Putin, but long before it was politically expedient for her to do so, Clinton was the face of President Obama’s “Russian reset” – the one that preceded the collapse of Ukraine – and bragged privately to big-money donors of her close ties to Putin. The strongman trusted her so much, she once boasted, that he invited her to his “inner sanctum”

Turkey

In her memoir, Hard Choices, Clinton reserved praise from President (then-Prime Minister) Recep Tayyip Erdogan that sounded not unlike her optimistic profiling of Xi Jinping. Erdogan, she said, was “an ambitious, forceful, devout and effective politician.” Of his government, she said Erdogan was correct to seek “zero problems with neighbors.” Wikileaks-released emails have since revealed that Erdogan sought to buy influence through campaign donations to the Clintons.

Kazakhstan

Among the more alarming deals Clinton cut at the State Department was the nuclear deal that handed one-fifth of America’s uranium production capacity to Russia. While Russia usurped control of the Uranium One corporation, the Clinton Foundations coffers filled with Russian money.

In addition to Uranium One control, the New York Times reports that Russia gained control of “mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world.”

Morocco

In a more recent Wikileaks reveal, the Clinton Foundation received a $12 million donation from the King of Morocco in exchange for Hillary Clinton’s presence at a Foundation summit. She did not attend at the last minute.

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia has enjoyed long-standing ties to the Clinton family, and donated at least $50 million to the Clinton Foundation. These ties persisted even as Clinton privately admitted she had evidence to believe that Saudi Arabia was “clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.”

Anonymous said...

United States

While the Clinton Foundation often served as a laundry service for foreign donations, Clinton fostered questionable ties with plenty of domestic entities, as well. Clinton has raked in millions in donations from big business in America, donors to which she privately promised “open borders.” Clinton’s ties to Department of Justice officials in the wake of an investigation into her use of an illicit private server for state business has also raised many questions regarding cronyism and corruption within our own country.



Jihadist Boom

Afghanistan

President Obama famously declared that the war in Afghanistan was over for American soldiers in 2014. The policies that led to that point only exacerbated the damage a vacuum of American power in the nation wrought following the announcement.

Under Clinton, the State Department largely ignored a sprawling corruption problem that left Afghanistan with few resources to combat the Taliban or al-Qaeda. Clinton policies elsewhere in the world also led to the development of an Islamic State presence in the nation.

Currently, U.S. officials warn that the Taliban is stronger than it has been since September 11, 2001.

Iraq

Unlike Syria, the collapse of which followed violent acts of oppression by a ruthless tyrant, Iraq’s collapse is more closely tied to American foreign policy due to the nation’s long-time occupation there. An American presence on the ground in Iraq did more to subdue jihadist elements there than any action to routinely-fleeing Iraqi military and its corrupt leadership took.

While Clinton was in office, President Obama withdrew most of America’s troops from Iraq, leaving a power vacuum rapidly filled by the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and Iran-backed Shiite militias. Military experts have agreed that a prolonged American presence in the country would have contributed to stability, and withdrawing left the nation vulnerable to Islamist colonization.

Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Cameroon

The nations surrounding Lake Chad continue to struggle with the rise of Boko Haram, a jihadist group founded in 2002 but active throughout the 2010s in northeast Borno state, Nigeria. Boko Haram is currently the deadliest wing of the Islamic State, and responsible for killing an estimated 15,000 and displacing millions. The group rose to international prominence following the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from a secondary school in the Borno region in 2014. Most of these girls remain in captivity, “married” off to Boko Haram jihadists for use as sex slaves.

As Secretary of State, Clinton refused to designate Boko Haram, at the time affiliated with al-Qaeda, a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The move severely hindered the Nigerian government’s ability to target and neutralize the group, as they could not seek U.S. aid for the mission.

Somalia, Kenya

Clinton traveled to Somalia personally in 2009 t0 offer support against al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group. Following that visit, al-Shabaab made its ties to al-Qaeda public and went on two high-profile rampages against civilians in Kenya: the Westgate Mall massacre in 2013 and the Garissa University attack of 2015. It has since then become a popular enough jihadist group to have found itself the object of courtship of both its al-Qaeda overlords and the Islamic State.

Al-Shabaab has also expanded into Libya now that Libya is a failed state.

The United States did little in those in-between years to subdue al-Shabaab, including a “Yemen-like” drone policy to target leadership and an embarrassing failed raid on an al-Shabaab camp in 2013. Clinton herself merely implored the terrorists to allow humanitarian aid.

Anonymous said...


Ukraine/Georgia

The Obama administration’s tepid responses to Russian colonization of former Soviet states has left Ukraine without its Crimea region and its eastern provinces in collapse. In Georgia, the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, invaded in 2008, remain under pseudo-Russian control.

Hillary Clinton presided over a “Russian reset” policy meant to dissuade Vladimir Putin from pillaging his neighbors. Clinton even gave her Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov a literal “reset button” as a gift, leaving him baffled. The reset succeeded in keeping Russia from obstructing the negotiation of the Iran nuclear deal and the invasion of Libya, but did little to convince Putin to change his foreign policy.

Subsequent revelations showed the Clintons taking money from both sides of the Ukraine conflict, and being careful of making too tough a stand against Putin’s aggression.

Yemen

As Secretary of State, Clinton made the first visit as America’s top diplomat to Yemen since 1990. There, she told Ali Abdullah Saleh that she would support a program to return al-Qaeda terrorists imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba to Yemen, while also acknowledging that Yemen was a hotbed of al-Qaeda activity. Saleh is now an ally of the Iran-backed Houthi rebels, which have launched a civil war against current president Abd Rabbo Mansur Hadi. Al-Qaeda is possibly the most stable entity in a nation where 80 percent of civilians live off of humanitarian aid, quadrupling its presence in the nation in a year. Yemen is a failed state torn apart by an emboldened Iran and Saudi Arabia, both major beneficiaries of the Clinton State Department’s policies.

The Migrant Crisis

Austria, Belgium, the Balkan nations, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, the Netherlands, Turkey, Sweden, the UK…

The Obama administration’s Syria and Libya policies (see above), executed while Clinton was Secretary of State, have triggered a flood of nearly five million displaced Syrians and over one million Libyans seeking refuge in Europe and the Middle East. Refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan, sub-Saharan Africa, and other volatile regions have added to the masses seeking a new home, rejected in countries like Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia who have criticized the West for being unwelcoming.

Anonymous, what other stories have I linked to are "fake"? Are you referring to my post upthread about Twitter?

Twitter and Facebook routinely suppress trending stories. Facebook will go even further and either remove comments they don't agree with or even disable a page if they want to.

More information:


Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube Sign Pledge to Suppress Speech and Promote ‘Counter Narratives’
Read more at http://thefreethoughtproject.com/facebook-twitter-youtube-sign-pledge-suppress-speech-promote-counter-narratives/#Sw8jXObY1RJLj8bl.99

Facebook, already increasingly known for widespread censorship of controversial content, just joined Twitter, YouTube, and Microsoft in agreeing to a European Commission “Code of Conduct” that’s even more Orwellian in scope than it sounds.
Under the guise of battling hate speech, illegal in the European Union, these incredibly popular online platforms have agreed not only to take down content considered to incite violence or hate, but to institute ‘re-education’ programs seemingly pulled straight from the text of 1984. According to a statement from the Commission, in addition to a policy of removing hate speech within 24 hours of it being reported:

...

Such a comprehensive policy agreement should infuriate independent media outlets and advocates of free speech alike, considering Facebook’s recent spate of post removals following reports — many of which have been for simply controversial topics, and nothing at all inciting hateful or terroristic acts. In fact, the language used in the Commission’s announcement appears to heavily favor the opinions of social justice groups, which it calls ‘civil society organizations’ or CSOs, in reporting what amounts to offensive content. As one of a number of agreed commitments states:

“The IT companies rely on support from Member States and the European Commission to ensure access to a representative network of CSO partners and ‘trusted reporters’ in all Member States helping to provide high quality notices. IT Companies to make information about ‘trusted reporters’ available on their websites.”

And, even more alarmingly, “to endeavor to strengthen partnerships with CSOs by widening the geographical spread of such partnerships and, where appropriate, to provide support and training to enable CSO partners to fulfill the role of ‘trusted reporter’ or equivalent.”

Okay one of my posts went poof. In any event, here is what Facebook does:


Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News
http://gizmodo.com/former-facebook-workers-we-routinely-suppressed-conser-1775461006

Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential “trending” news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project. This individual says that workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users.

...


Depending on who was on shift, things would be blacklisted or trending,” said the former curator. This individual asked to remain anonymous, citing fear of retribution from the company. The former curator is politically conservative, one of a very small handful of curators with such views on the trending team. “I’d come on shift and I’d discover that CPAC or Mitt Romney or Glenn Beck or popular conservative topics wouldn’t be trending because either the curator didn’t recognize the news topic or it was like they had a bias against Ted Cruz.”

The former curator was so troubled by the omissions that they kept a running log of them at the time; this individual provided the notes to Gizmodo. Among the deep-sixed or suppressed topics on the list: former IRS official Lois Lerner, who was accused by Republicans of inappropriately scrutinizing conservative groups; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; popular conservative news aggregator the Drudge Report; Chris Kyle, the former Navy SEAL who was murdered in 2013; and former Fox News contributor Steven Crowder. “I believe it had a chilling effect on conservative news,” the former curator said.

I just watched the video and her husband SEEMS sincere in his weeping. he seems terrified and hysterical. What occurred to me before I watched it though is that we are only going by his word that she disappeared while jogging, we don't actually know for a fact that she did go jogging. If he is responsible, he could have planted that phone. That said, those tears were very convincing, and I am usually very cynical. He seems terrified. I have only seen the one interview, though.

OT..

Sherri Papini

There are conflicting reports. A neighbor said they saw her on that day around 2PM walking on road. But then they say it could have been 11AM.

All it means is someone saw her during the day.

I still can't get over the "I know she's screaming"
