2016: Your Views On Lies

"Don't lie to me, Grandpa!" 
This is a request from readers for assistance:

What were the most shocking or egregious lies told this past year? 

This can include stories that impacted you, even from lies of years past (McCann, Jonbenet, Amanda Blackburn, Politicians, Brexit, Migration, Terror, Wikileaks, etc)  

What stories most impacted you? 

Why?

What bothered you about the lies?

Thank you!

Fake hate was the thing that stood out to me the most this year. Not only its increased prevalence, but the way these stories are swallowed without question by so many. Not only that, but when confronted with proof that the stories are lies, those who believed them respond with ludicrous defenses like, "Well they HAD to do that to bring attention to other things like this that weren't reported!" It's like people want to live in a society where hatred and violence are rampant because it suits their narrative.

It was amusing to me when I saw several people question whether the verbal tirade against Ivanka Trump on the Jet Blue plane was set up by the Trump camp. I suppose when one is willing to fabricate drama in order to "help" one's own side, it's only natural to assume the same of others.

To me one of the most despicable lies was perpetuated by the media and politicians claiming that anyone who voted for the UK to leave the European Union must be bigoted, racist Little Englanders. All 17.5 million of them. Despite the dire pronouncements being made, the stock market wobbled a bit, like it always does, but then rebounded.

Instead the British people raised two fingers at the elites and voted for Home Rule.

If Britain never had joined the EU in the first place, they would never have voted to join it? They would have looked at its shocking unemployment, slow economy, bureaucracy and porous borders and decide quite reasonably that we were better off out. Any politician who tried to tell us the opposite would have be laughed at in the streets.

Why was this referendum so close? Simply because propaganda works; David Cameron's campaign of scare-mongering and lies worked.

Hmmm. The lies from and lack of prosecution against the DiPietros bother me greatly. I wish Justin's 911 call had yielded more clues. Justin's lies, Phoebe's publically accusing Trista of being the one responsible for Ayla's disappearance. The failure to prosecute the DiPietros I sometimes feel like is also a form of dishonesty. An insult to justice. I dont understand why the case cant be prosecuted against Justin. Its a matter of incorporating concrete evidence with very compelling circumstantial evidence.
Also, Bruce Jenner being awarded "Woman of the Year" bothers me. The fact people are now rewarded for almost psychotic and ludicrous thought processes and attitudes that if they believe something to be true, no matter how impossible, then that makes it true.

What were the most shocking or egregious lies told this past year?
You know to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” “…the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”

What stories most impacted you?
The negative propaganda towards Donald Trump and his supporters.

Why?
Before he ran for President, he was a successful businessman. As soon as he ran for President, he was portrayed as the most dangerous man on the planet, and the press ignored Hillary's treason.

What bothered you about the lies?
That so many people, especially some relatives, believed the propaganda of moral narcissism.

All the hate against cops/Law enforcement bothers me and has changed my way of looking at the world.
I'm also bother by the rise and almost whole-cloth acceptance of the fake hate reports.

Both topics make family gatherings difficult and tense.

One not covered on the blog was the war on opioid pain meds and how those with chronic illnesses are marginalized. In the rush to save one segment of society, another is sacrificed.

What amazed me was in the run up to the US elections and Hillary Clinton was bundled unconscious into a black van and driven to her daughter's home. The lie was in the cover up by the media, pretending it was nothing much, the woman who bounded out of the daughter's house a short while later didn't look like the one that went in.. and pneumonia whilest hugging a supposed passing child? Lies all lies!

False Flags the last four to 6 years. Thanks Peter for bringing light to the deception. I was aware of a few anti-gun agendas but had no idea the extent.

Also Davey Blackburn. This brought to light so many things wrong with the megachurches and preaching for fame and fortune. It truly seems to be an American Megachurch Tragedy

Carnival Barker said...


Davey Blackburn gets my vote because his lies evolve as people call him out on them. He spits in the face of law enforcement and anyone with a brain as he starts his new, unencumbered, single life.

Apparently, crime pays. Mr. Blackburn is living proof.

Trudy said...

Davey Blackburn's shower conversation with God was a filthy lie from start to finish; as were his claims that he had no idea that Amanda had been sexually assaulted and shot in the head -that she had "just lost the baby" - despite the fact she was lying face down in a pool of blood with her shirt pulled up, her tooth knocked out, she was bleeding from the head, arm and back, her panties on the floor beside her and the contents of her purse, including credit cards, were strewn about.

Not only that but he said it was God's grace that protected him from realizing what had happened.

Pretty much everything that came out of Vernal Kunz and Jessica Mitchell's mouths about the disappearance of Baby DeOrr was a lie.

Michelle, I agree...doctors can no longer prescribe adequate pain meds for people in severe chronic pain. I believe the government has been lying about the true reason behind many (not all) of the overdoses. Chemists are synthesizing deadly drugs the are almost identical to fetanyl, elephant tranquilizers, etc...and fake pain meds created in labs to be sold to addicts and that are deadly. The DEA is just letting people know about this. A lot of it is ordered over the internet from China also it comes from Mexico...the DEA doesnt even know what many of these drugs are that people are ODing on bc they are unknown substances created in labs. So aside from actual opiod overdoses there is much more out there killing people. I read an article about this last week.

Anonymous said...

I also read in the article that robin's egg blue oxycontin is actually NOT oxycontin but is being sold to addicts by dealers...it is a deadly drug that is lethal if ingested and it was created in an illegal drug lab.

Philip Casale said...

This past year, the amount of blatant, direct, and deliberate misinformation spread through the mainstream media has gotten to me the most. I've always know that the media twists stories and sometimes fails to "tell the whole story," seemingly to push an agenda or sway opinion. This year, however, the amount of lies, hypocrisy, deception, and overall inaccuracy of the mainstream media has brought me to a tipping point. The election of Trump amplified and brought forward the true colors of the media. Reporting and making HUGE, front-page issues of any story demonizing Trump. One story which went viral, the next day was found to be made up, a lie concocted by an angry Trump hater. What happened? Nothing. The same outlet that wrote a two page article about this very story, already spread the lies, and already did the damage says nothing. Oh, i'm sorry, on page 27 somewhere in the bottom left there is a paragraph that says yesterdays article was not true. Come on. This bullshit has to stop.

@10:28, I agree, it is diabolical...these chemists are synthesizing drugs that are like one molecule off from fentanyl, elephant tranquilizers. etc--they are made to be lethal but they make them one molecule off so that they can't technically be considered illegal (?) DEA cannot identify many substances being sold as heroine, and like I said, robin's egg blue oxycontin is NOT oxycontin--it is a lethal drug masquerading as oxycontin--people should be warned about that!!!! Nevermind the regular heroine & oxycontin etc pouring over Mexican border. I think with Obama, he doesn't want to get his hands dirty...same thing he did in Syria...don't cross the red line...oops you crossed it, oh well I won't do anything. He should be going after the drug cartels...apparently oftentimes the lower level dealers do not know they are selling lethal synthesized drugs but obviously they should be punished also not given hugs by Obama...he should be going after the cartels and tightening the security at border to protect the citizens...it is young people dying of overdoses, many times probably because they are getting lethal synthesized drugs...dirty secret Obama has kept hidden. Other times it is overdoses on regular heroine/opiods...point being he needs to shut off the flow from Mexico and should be beefing up the DEA and working to identify these drugs and go after the dealers, makers...Obama just does nothing...he lives in his own fantasy world where everything is all butterflies and roses.

Here is the article, very eye-opening about what is going on regarding drugs in the U.S. The article also mentions that one of the drugs now in the illegal drug supply in the U.S. (I think masquerading as heroine?) identified this past summer is a drug that was previously used as a chemical weapon!!!

Worst, most egregious lie(s)? The ones which do not simply deny, but re-write the history of the USA. We are not a nation of immigrants. There have not been equal contributions by all peoples to our success. I would add that the election of Trump may signal an awaking by the people, or it could simply be the flickering of a candle before it is extinguished. Time will tell.

Obama's lie that billions in cash had to be transfered to Iran, in secret no less, because "he couldn't write a check." Press reaction? Eh, whatever. Also just today a career criminal who murdered a woman in cold blood now claims she committed suicide after they had consensual sex, by beating and strangling herself. Press reaction? Print the lies and spread them all over the world causing her family even more untold pain. And I'll just lump all the murdering mothers, fathers, wives, husbands etc. together who lie with impunity because of our broken and corrupt criminal justice system.

HONOLULU – The Latest on a guilty verdict in a missing Maui pregnant woman's death (all times local):

4:30 p.m.

Jurors who found a Hawaii man guilty of murder in the death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend must return to court to hear arguments about whether the crime was especially heinous.

The indictment against Steven Capobianco says he caused the death Carly "Charli" Scott in an "especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel manner." The jury on Thursday will hear a prosecutor and Capobianco's defense attorney make arguments for and against that allegation.

Then they'll have to deliberate. Their verdict will determine whether Capobianco receives an enhanced sentence of life without possibility for parole.

The jury found Capobianco guilty of second-degree murder on Wednesday. They began deliberating on Dec. 1 after listening to about six months of testimony.

Scott was five months pregnant with Capobianco's child when she disappeared in 2014.

__

1:20 p.m.

A jury has found a Hawaii man guilty of murder in the death of his ex-girlfriend who disappeared while five months pregnant with his child.

Jurors reached the verdict on Wednesday.

Steven Capobianco has been on trial since June in the death of Carly "Charli" Scott. Her mother and sisters last saw her on Feb. 9, 2014.

Police later found some of Scott's body parts and bloody clothes.

Defense attorney Jon Apo told jurors that detectives, Scott's family and even Capobianco's friends presumed him guilty without considering other suspects.

Capobianco didn't testify.

OT Update:

Remembering Hailey Dunn: 6 Years Later, Billie Dunn Speaks Out

(KTAB) - It was six years ago on Tuesday, December 27, 2016 that we first heard the name Hailey Dunn. She was the 13-year-old cheerleader that was reported missing from Colorado City in 2010.

Search efforts for the missing teen spanned the course of three years. In 2013, Hailey's remains were found in a dried up lake bed at Lake J.B. Thomas in Scurry County. On the anniversary of her disappearance, Hailey's mother, Billie Dunn, sat down with KTAB to talk about the emotional anniversary.

"It's the same as every day," Dunn said. "I feel sadness over not having her home yet. I feel anger over not having an arrest yet. I feel anger over somebody not having any remorse to confess. It's always in the back of my mind," she continued. "I just try to keep very busy."

Billie said although Hailey's killer is still at large, she still has hope that justice will be served.

"I still want to believe every time they tell me there's going to be an arrest soon," she said. "I keep that faith."

With the somber anniversary being near the holiday season, Billie said it's an emotional time.

"It's tough. I'm always with a lot of my family, my close family, on Christmas," she said. "But it's still tough that I don't have my daughter."

Billie said what eases her mind, is the support and small piece of closure that she's received.

"That really warms my heart, I have KTAB contacting me every year," she said. "That we have over 4,000 followers on Hope for Hailey Facebook page that sends us messages all the time of prayers and we're going to keep sharing Hailey's story. It's very heartwarming."

Billie Dunn confirmed to KTAB that the Scurry County Sheriff's Office is continuously providing updates in the investigation. According to Billie, the FBI is still offering a $15,000 reward for any information on the Hailey Dunn case.

The Ramsey case, still.
Why? It was clearly a staged crime scene, proving the "family has done it" theory, but even after 20 years, no one can be sure about who has done what.

What went through Patsey's head when she wrote that HANDwritten ransom note/letter? How was she able to write that, right after loosing her child? What worry was so strong to be able to write a 2.5 pages fiction with her daughter's dead body in the house?
Who started the chain of events? The parents are clearly guilty of the cover up. Are they guilty of murder? Did they try to save a guilty son with the cover up, or did they leave a lifelong suspicion on their innocent son?

After watching the Dr Phil interview with Burke, I am not convinced of his guilt, nor his innocence, but now I am sure, Burke knows what happened.
IF he is innocent, one day, he will have to make a decision. Either to continue to live under the suspicion of being a murderer just to protect his parents' lies, or to tell the truth and clear his own name. IF he is guilty we will never know for sure.

The post-election false claims by multiple muslim women, gay men/lesbian women, african-americans, latinos, jewish college students etc. that they were attacked by Trump supporters, had their property damaged by Trump supporters or were otherwise victimized by Trump supporters. The Black Lives Matter propaganda concerning the circumstances of dangerous criminals killed by police, resulting in many riots and ambush assassinations of police officers.

rjb said...

Blaming Russia for the leaked emails and drawing focus to exciting words like "cyber espionage" is a way of drawing the public eye away from the content of those emails. The content of the emails and the actions of Hillary Clinton and the DNC reflect poorly on Obama as well, so deflect, deflect, deflect!

Dawn said...

I agree about the fake hate, also the corruption of the DNC and attempts to deflect their horrid behavior onto Russian hacks, while never denying the content of the emails...

But for me and my family, the lie that impact us the most are peddled by paid off CA senator Richard Pan, Merck, and the CDC... The fact that media is NOT ALLOWED to report on vaccine stories - this told to me personally by a news anchor outside an LA courthouse.

Two Merck scientists have filed a lawsuit stating that they falsified their efficacy study of the MMR, to show it as 95% effective by using blood taken from animals to show increased antibodies... http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSL1N0YQ0W820150604

Factor that in with the fact that the most recent measles outbreak shows that all 82 patients WERE vaccinated against it - it isn't effective.

We also can't forget the CDC whistleblower / lead scientist of the 2004 MMR autism study William Thompson who said that he "feels shame every time he meets another child with autism..." He also stated that this study, which is the one people point to when claiming that vaccines don't cause autism, actually showed a very high correlation but they had a meeting and dumped their documents in a trash barrel and BURNED them... They removed data from the final results in order to show no link...

For those of us with children that we are charged with protecting, this is more than just worrisome, as children die every day from vaccines, or have lifelong ailments such as autoimmune disorders, seizures, paralysis, autism, and more.

The fact the senator Pan lied in hearings when he pushed SB277 (forcing of 72 vaccinations) onto the children of CA - that this law wouldn't be a violation of our religious freedom even though DNA from aborted babies is now a common ingredient in most vaccines... When he even went so far as to claim that "vaccines are safer than water."!!

Peter I am begging you to conduct an analysis on some of the propaganda put out by the CDC and others who financially benefit greatly from forced vaccinations. I have heard of too many children dying of SIDS within hours of multiple vaccines - my baby niece now fighting for her life after Redding a round of shots at only 2 months old... The babies en utero who did of heart attacks within hours of heir pregnant moms receiving flu shots or DTAP which is now pushed onto them with no safety testing... My autistic nephews, my children who are barred even from private Christian school because we refuse the vaccines with aborted baby DNA... Which happen to be the very same vaccines with the most payouts from proven vaccine injuries, held in a secret vaccine court which gets no media reporting... The lies based on greed at the expense of our children... Bill Gates who has been quoted many times saying that vaccines are the key to population control... Please help shine a light in truth - the public deserves to know!

The Amanda Blackburn case. It's not right she's not "here" to watch her son grow up. Now I understand why some law students are motivated to become defence attorneys. I don't disagree with the evidence putting Watson and Gordon in possession of Amanda's bank card and syphoning money from her account. But until real, first-hand evidence says otherwise, I do not believe Larry Taylor shot and killed Amanda Blackburn.

It's very hard to be the bearer of truth. On a personal level, there are so many lies in my extended family, I finally got fed up and wrote a letter to a family member laying the whole charade out. Never mind that I cc'd my husband (who agreed with every word and even wrote his own "in addition to"), I am the walking wounded. It's extremely difficult not turning the "fighting" inward. Since my mother-in-law died, I am slowly being vindicated. It's sad to say, but things are much more settled since she passed. I actually feel healthier.

Yes, I did. I know what evil is. Evil does have worldly power here on this earth.

"At present, Christianity has nothing to show for the claim of actually knowing the only true God. Nothing."

Yes, it does. The answer is in Jesus' resurrection. With all due respect, you probably do not have a very deep understanding of Christianity. You cannot have this type of understanding unless you repent and acknowledge Jesus as your savior. It is difficult to fully grasp Christianity on a purely intellectual level...most of it can be grasped intellectually...but there is a mystical element that must be embraced to understand it.

Don't worry so much about the problem of evil right now at this stage in your spiritual development. Be kind and giving to others and the way to Christ will be revealed to you. Good luck!

After reading the anti-vaccine rant, I would say that the lasting effects of Andrew Wakefield's fraudulent "research" and the ongoing exaggerations of the anti-vax community are 2nd place for negative impact after bogus hate crime hoaxes. Regardless what some random unidentified news anchor might or might not have said, the media is not prohibited from reporting on adverse vaccine effects. I'm so old, both myself and my husband have smallpox vaccination scars. I was lucky enough not to catch polio, measles, mumps, etc. before vaccines were developed for those diseases but I nearly died from chickenpox. In addition to literally hundreds if not thousands of pox on my body, I had pox on my eyelids, on my tongue and going down my throat. Based on my symptoms, my pediatrician thought I might have them on the membranes of my brain and my intestines as well. I remember hearing a discussion between my parents and my doctor about whether I should be hospitalized; basically my doctor said there was nothing the hospital could do for me that my parents could not, like give me ice baths when I had febrile convulsions due to my extremely high fever. My mother had priests from our church come and annoint me with sacred oil and pray over me because she thought I was going to die. My family has not been directly impacted by the anti-vax craze but 1) a boy in our school district is a recent bone marrow transplant recipient and 2) several college students at nearby UC Berkeley returned from vacations abroad having contracted measles and ridden on public transit while extremely contagious, so this is an indirectly active issue for us.

rjb said...

Thank you, @Katprint. Anti-vax rhetoric infuriates me and your response was well reasoned and much calmer than I would have been.

I have five children (four bio children and I am also raising my granddaughter.) A century ago, I would have seen at least one of them die a painful, protracted death due to diphtheria, polio, small pox, or some other disease that we now have the luxury of ignoring. I don't deny that vaccination injury exists, but the tie between autism and vaccines has been thoroughly disproven and any pediatrician worth their salt will work with parents to find a more drawn out vaccination schedule if parents are concerned about too many vaccinations at once.

Most of the diseases that we vaccinate against have no medical treatment outside of fluids, rest, and patience. They are painful and terrifying to live through and even if one survives, many of them provide lasting negative effects such as infertility that go unnoticed for decades sometimes.

The science behind vaccinations is sound and utilises one's own immune system precisely in the same way an actual infection does but with much lower risk. Some people regretfully have adverse reactions. Some people are deathly allergic to peanuts. The point being, I cannot control or protect my children from everything, including how their own bodies will react to outside stimuli. What I can do is give thanks that I live in a time and place where my children do not have to face the terror and dangers that these "childhood illnesses" pose.

The sad thing is most chronic pain sufferes do NOT want to take oxycontin. I am a chronic pain patient, and luckily my condition can be controlled temporarily by non-painkiller meds. Some are not so lucky, and if nothing can control or help their condition, they should absolutely have access to oxycontin. Oxycontin was made to treat severe pain.,.it has no other use or purpose.
I know a doc, top in his field who says he is being babysat...charts must be filled out by him and the patient justifyinv the need for every single pill. And this is a guy who refuses to prescribe sleep meds I think bc he doesnt want people getting hooked on them So whoever he was prescribing oxycontin to was in DIRE need of it.
I feel bad for people hooked on pain meds (addicts)...however I dont really understand how so many end up hooked on them. You hear the explanation from the media that many got hooked after getting a pain med prescription after a dental procedure...I find this hard to believe.

Plus addicts oftentimes pretend they have a painful aikment to get the pills but the doctor is far more qualified to recognize someone feigning a condition then drug companies or government. I just dont understand why or how so many addicts get hooked on them. Or how they finance the addiction. I read that buying pills off the street can cost $10 a pill so many addicts have $500 a day habit! How can they afford this?!

Encouraged by the lack of engaging MSM, this is a great video:

what addicts do should be of no consequence to a chronic pain sufferer. keep the government out and let the doc deal with the patient. once politicians get involved law abiding people suffer. you know the ones that actually pay taxes

low dosing people in need is not going to save addicts. my doctor said that he thinks there is going to be more over doses because now people in real chronic pain may go and seek street solutions because the politicians

hey, chicago has the best gun laws in the world, man, and they are killing each other with black on black male killing number one! what do the politicians that destroyed black families with welfare say? take away guns with stricter gun laws! ha ha!

Anon you wrote " what addicts do should be of no consequence to a chronic pain sufferer."

I agree wholeheartedly. I wont even get started on how mistreated chronic pain sufferes are. People love to mock chronic pain sufferers, acting like they must be making it up or the effects its had on their life and people cannot comprehend how debilitating chronic pain can be. For a society so enlightened they can understand a man is deep inside a woman but they cant understand that chronic pain sucks...and most chronic pain sufferers do not complain, and become very stoic when the pain is under control....I think it is a naturally occurring mental process by which you have to become tough and stoic to survive chronic pain and make the most of time you are not in severe pain. This has been true of people I know, even someone I know who had a crushed foot, they are not normally talking or complaining about it when the pain is under control whether that is for hours, days, etc..whiich I guess makes people think yeah whatever. Doctors, nevermind doctors at friggin pain clinics, should not be prevented from prescribing pain meds. Plus I dont see how if someone is using pain meds for pain it would cause tolerance to build bc it would just bring them back or closer to baseline pain-controlled state...not get them high. All I can say is Im past the point if I would care if people who mock chronic pain patients or make their treatment difficult or impossible had to experience what it feels like to have their pain for 2 weeks. People often say of certain pain conditions "I wouldnt wish this on my worst enemy.". I actually would wish it on people who mock chronic pain sufferers or who interfere with their treatment for 2 straight weeks. My thought would be "Are you laughing now? Are you going to tell a doctor they cant treat your pain in whatever way actually works?" Guarantee they would have changed their attitude completely and would stop harrassing doctors who treat people in chronic pain. Nevermind doctors who treat chronic pain are brave people because they are taking on something which is often very difficult to treat or control...they are saying to their patients "I promise I will help you" when other doctors were too lazy, stupid and/or didnt give a crap.They should NOT have drug companies or government making their job even harder.

Good points 4:52.

Sorry to hear bout your crushed foot.

Anonymous said...

Lol, I don't have a crushed foot--that was someone I used to hang out with's brother who did autobody work, and I think a part of a car or machinery had fallen on it and crushed it to the point it could never be repaired right...he could still walk but was in a lot of pain.

Anonymous said...

But he never really complained...he had told his brother it hurt all the time but he had learned to live with it bc he had no choice, but he was not usually smiling, more stoic expression. I don't know what, if anything, he took for the pain. Just saying people who have had serious chronic pain are not usually big complainers...I do have a chronic pain problem since age 14...I do not like to talk about it, I don't consider it a part of me, I don't want pity, I don't want to take up anyone's time or darken their day complaining about it, in fact I don't like to think about it myself when out of pain...where I draw the line is I don't appreciate people mocking people with chronic pain, bc I guarantee I have never asked that person for one ounce of their time or understanding, so they can STFU! The few times I've heard someone mocking someone with chronic pain, they don't ever talk to me again, because I don't hold back and I tell them what scum they are. That's one thing I don't tolerate.

Anonymous said...

Wow. I hope he was able to continue working. Structural foot damage can destabilize the entire body if unable to walk properly. Especially after years, the knees, hips and spinal problems can develope.

I would have to say that MSM and all the "non" news sites that constantly churn out half-truths and blatant lies. There was a time, seems like forever, that you could trust what was written but now, anybody can slap anything together, give it some graphics, and it becomes not only "news" but the truth. It drives me insane that I have to search and search to find the true facts of anything I read and all this fake news does, ALL IT DOES, is polarize, divide, and cause more hate.

I think these are the most dangerous lies also because so many people believe them, repeat them, and then they become the truth to an alarming amount of people.

Where did our common sense go? When did hate become the prevalent emotion in this country? How can people actually believe 100% of what is written in MSM and beyond about one person? I read the above comments and everyone is black & white. HRC is a liar, and Trump got a "bad rap" from the press.

HRC IS a liar...so is Trump. They both are for Gods sake and it scares me that people think one is and one isn't. Are they deaf? Blind? Is it because one is "political lies" while the other is just lies about any and everything? Once Trump gets some political years under his belt, he will have his share of political lies too. Liars lie, right? I am not talking politics here per se..I'm stating that they are BOTH liars but one is perceived as worse because politics and government are attached to it. They are BOTH proven liars but why do so many people refuse to see it?

Fake hate would be my next issue. Picked up by the anything goes media and spread all over the world. So much so that people actually think that unarmed blacks are gunned down regularly by police when statistic after statistic show that NOT to be true. MSM makes it seem like literally hundreds of young black men are just being picked off by police. But hey..it must be true right cuz I read it on Facebook. So I'm going to "like" the article that just told me 2 cops were just executed sitting in their cars. They deserved it, right? Fake hate and all the gofundme accounts it generates. We need to adapt new laws in this country that increase jail time for people that perpetuate fake hate and then they need to be prosecuted!

Next has to be Davey Blackburn because he lies and hides it behind "God" and the sheeple just follow right after him. Mindless idiots

Anything to do with Papini...what an injustice to real abducted women and their families everywhere.

Anything to do with Kunz. I am SO SICK of people not wanting their children or not caring for them...so they just kill them and throw them away like trash, and they are never held accountable. All these murderers still roaming free while they have extinguished the most vulnerable of our society and we let that happen because we have spineless DA's that refuse to convene a grand jury to see if an indictment will stick because their egos don't want a "loser" case. If that DA doesn't think he/she will win..let them go. Let those murderers go.






Trudy said...

I forgot to mention what bothered me most about Davey Blackburn's egregious lies, but Lynda hit the nail on the head. He hides behind God. He adds insult to injury, over and over. Delivering the shower scene conversation with God, during his FIL's service, at his FILs church, shortly after Amanda's murder was diabolical.

When he said that it was God's grace that protected him from understanding the nature of Amanda's injuries I was shocked. I still am.
If anything, (if he was innocent) he should have been cursing himself for his ignorance and incompetence in delaying the assistance Amanda required.

Anonymous said...

@9:06, Yeah he was able to keep working, and your response doesn't sound very sympathetic to him. It sounds like you're being sarcastic or something? He ended up having some surgeries after a few years. I am not in touch with him anymore, I don't know how much they helped and I don't know anything else about his situation, if his foot injury damaged any of his other skeletal system, and frankly it's none of my business or yours.

Anonymous said...

Also, just FYI the guy was/is a very hard worker both on and off the job. He works doing autobody which means taking big pieces of cars off, lifting with machinery etc and something fell on his foot and created a crush injury. He continued working however was in chronic pain. Last I heard he's had a few surgeries. I don't know if they helped because I haven't heard any updates. However, your comment sounded snide...if the guy had crushed his foot to the point he couldn't work, or couldn't work for a time, how would that be your business? I love how people just sit back and because they are not experiencing what another person is experiencing ie "MY foot feels just fine, that guy must be full of it." Newsflash: People who do manual labor involving heavy stuff sometimes get injured. If you don't know what that person is dealing with or how much pain they are in or how debilitating it is, don't pretend to know, because you don't, and keep your snide opinions to yourself.

The lie I hate the most is that Bruce Jenner is a woman and because he had hundreds of thousands of dollars in facial surgery and hair removal and created a half way decent face and hair while looking like a hulking line backer in a dress that he is a "woman" of the year. And everyone on social media is like yay that's so awesome. Really?! Caitlyn was a husband and father. I wonder if they would be applauding if they woke up one morning and their husband was lying in bed next to them wearing an evening gown and high heels. I know I for one would vomit. Nevermind the fact that it is a sexual fetish where a man sexually "enjoys" pretending he is a woman and must be in love with his female alter-ego...it is so deeply psychotically narcissistic. Very sick even sicker that these "men" are allowed into women's bathrooms because they are complete perverts. Study the illness--it is not safe to allow them in women's bathrooms. These men are not really "women" on the inside that is bull. I have nothing against a man showing his feminine qualities but how the hell is that feminine qualities paying tons of money to get a fake face and looking ridiculous in a dress? I am so sick of how screwed up society is. People can just wake up and say "hey I'm a flying giraffe" and everyone applauds. Seriously noone can call a spade a spade anymore. These people appear disturbed and creepy--nothing looks creepier than a man in a dress...granted a very few can pull it off--the rest look like a living nightmare...nothing actually looks stranger than a man with broad shoulders masculine face 6 feet tall wearing a dress. These people need intensive psychiatric help.

In fact I would think that if someone is that confused about the fundamental reality of who they are and/or so in love with what they pretend to be that they would actually "become" it through surgery I would think they could be satanically possessed. I don't see what else could explain it. Obviously God did not intend for someone to fall in love with a disturbing alter-ego that they create and then turn into it!!! The alter-ego appears to be a farcical mockery of women also and then the person develops a love relationship with a creepy mockery of women and then turns into it! In my opinion there is something diabolical about that. Maybe the dysphoria could be satanic possession. Frankly I don't care what people do, it is none of my business but it is my business if that person is braggin about it to the whole world.

You have no discernment. Very poor sensibility.

Peter Hyatt said...

If you follow the narrative, Bruce Jenner is not just a woman, and not just "woman of the year."

He is a 65 year old grandpa who is now a "hot co-ed college chick" showing off his "hot legs" (terms from MSM).

It represents the highest form of insult to woman, but the lure of moral narcissism is far too great for many to resist.

How much fine will you have to pay for publicly calling Bruce, "Bruce"?

I would have to say....The biggest lie where humans still live under is religion......Which is the cause of much of the missery in this world and has been used for over 2000 years to make people believe in all of the other lies that they have been telling to suppress people's thinking of their own. It has made many of them turn into robots who can't think for themselves and hide behind the lies they are being told to them from birth in which they full hearted believe and give them excuses to do harm to others in name of "god", that to me is just sickening and makes this world an evil place to be in!

Of course the Ramsey case, the Avery case and many more as such cases have opened my eyes to see this world is made out of lies.
The pheadofile ring just another horrible thruth that has come to light.

Even in my own personal world I've seen many people come by with all of their lies and fake kindness, it has made me learn not to trust anybody untill proven otherwise! So the term innocent untill proven guilty is just another lie......In the world we live in today it should be the other way around........It's just hard to trust anybody in this world now days! That's just sad!

Peter Hyatt said...

Habundia,

the problem is that everyone has a religion; yourself included. If this is the "biggest lie" you've seen, you also need some serious (truthful) history lessons on ideology and impact upon culture, separating it from any personal expression of "faith." The truthful history means avoiding propaganda and narrative driven, and reading material from the era, itself.

I found this to be a wonderful experience years ago:

I read women's journals from 1861-65, from the South.

How's that for a strange "speciality"?

It was a great help in understanding a period of time in which my own schooling was woefully inadequate.

Religion.

Everyone has a religion. That which you turn to for arbitration of right from wrong will reveal your "god." Atheists' declaration against religion is a religion.

Pat Condell literally uses Christianity's logic, which he inherited, to condemn it. He uses the Bible's division of right from wrong, for example, as his point of arbitration, but then condemns the source.

He is funny, and has keen observational skills, but he is not logical nor a deep thinker.

Atrocities done under all names but perhaps none done greater in number than "atheism", including the literal starving of entire cities in the official atheistic rule of stalin.

Judeo Christianity produced the western world. The "do unto others" whether or not any god exists, limited crime greatly.
Islam produced the greatest number of enslaved people in the world and a death count that surpasses all others (the Stalin era or soviet era was intense but short lived).

What you declare to be "truth" and your definition of "hate" reveals your own 'religious' belief.

Statement Analysis will look at all ideologies, including "statism" (atheism) where worshippers bow to the authority of government to tell them what is right from what is wrong.

For example, while is pedophilia wrong? What is the moral authority on this?

Your final line suggests being burned pretty badly. Welcome to a world where we all experience this. It doesn't make you odd, but only honest. We all share this, as humans, and it really doesn't help to try to live hidden away, but to discern and then, if possible, to forgive.

It ain't easy!

Don't let personal experience derail your journey to truth.

Happy New Year,

Peter
