Art of the BIG Lie
‘Distorting the Truth Infamously’
“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” –Article II, Section 1, Constitution of the United States (1787)
In my last Memo to Demos, I outlined Obama’s litany of lies to win passage of ObamaCare, or as an increasing number of Democrats now prefer to call it, the “Affordable Care Act.” Having supported this catastrophic behemoth, they now hope that their refusal to utter the word “ObamaCare” will provide them a measure of political protection. The truth, however, is that they are now irrevocably linked to Obama’srepeated bald-faced lies.
I concur with the assessment of political analyst Jonah Goldberg that Obama’s lies are “the biggest lies about domestic policy ever uttered by a U.S. president.”
As politically vulnerable Demos in the Senate are scurrying away from the ObamaCare train wreck, their intrepid leader, Sen. Harry Reid, yet again repeated Obama’s Big Lie: “What he said was true. If you want to keep the insurance you have you can keep it. The problem is, we did not put the bill into effect that way.”
In other words, you can keep your insurance and doctor, except “we did not put the bill into effect that way.” This must be why he exempted some of his staff from ObamaCare.
I was as stupefied by Reid’s reiteration of this now-infamous lie as was the reporter who asked him about it. Is Reid suffering from acute dementia? Has he been imprisoned in some sensory deprivation tank for the last two months? Or is he, like Obama, thoroughly accomplished in the art of the Big Lie? Recall that this audacious technique is a staple of the biggest deceptions propagated by Leftist cadres since the rise of Marxism and its murderous manifestations in successive regimes, most notably the National Socialist German Workers’ Party from the 1930s through the end of World War II.
Some reading this will question: Really Alexander? Obama and Hitler? Is this another histrionic example of Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1″?
If you’re among those who’d rather dismiss such associations because they seem too strident — or because you want to help maintain Obama’s deception — then your answer is yes. But the fact is, Obama’s lies fit neatly into the Big Lie framework defined by another pathological narcissist, Adolf Hitler.

Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said the Department of Health and Human Services allegedly told a private contractor not to cooperate with congressional requests for information.
Editor’s Note: Video Exposes Dangers of Obamacare Law
HHS also is said to have notified Creative Computing Solutions Inc. that it agreed in its contract not to share certain things with outside parties and that the department would deal with any requests for documents from Congress.
Issa described these moves as a “threat of litigation to deter private companies from cooperating” with lawmakers’ requests for information.

Boehner lashes at conservative groups: ‘They’ve lost all credibility’ (It is time show him who we are in 2014)
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) lit into conservative activist groups for a second straight day, saying they have “lost all credibility” by attacking a bipartisan budget deal before it came out.
In a remarkable year-end press conference, Boehner repeatedly, and at times angrily, denounced and mocked the organizations that have dogged him throughout his Speakership, accusing them of “misleading their followers” while defending his own conservative credentials.
“I think they’re pushing our members in places where they don’t want to be, and frankly, I just think that they’ve lost all credibility,” Boehner said.
The Speaker didn’t cite any organizations by name, but he was clearly referring to a collection of Tea Party and conservative groups that have opposed nearly every significant piece of fiscal legislation he has presented to his members. They include Heritage Action, the political arm of the influential think tank, as well as the Tea Party-aligned FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity.
Boehner grew more animated as he recalled the government shutdown in October, blaming the activists who he said “pushed us into this fight to defund ObamaCare and shut down the government.”
The day before the government reopened, he said, “one of these groups stood up and said, well, we never really thought it would work.”
“Are you kidding me?!” Boehner asked loudly.
Boehner and his leadership team have privately seethed at groups like Heritage for months, but the groups’ decision to oppose the budget agreement in advance prompted the Speaker to denounce them in public. His venting follows that of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who, earlier this fall, called out the groups for launching primaries against him and his members.
The Speaker strongly defended the two-year budget agreement that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) negotiated with Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), saying that, while it is not everything Republicans want, it “takes giant steps in the right direction.”
“This budget bill gets us more deficit reduction than what we have under the Budget Control Act,” he said. “I came here to cut the size of government. That’s exactly what this bill does, and why conservatives wouldn’t vote for this, or [would] criticize the bill is beyond any recognition I could come up with.”
But the press conference turned to a broader defense of Boehner’s three-year tenure as Speaker.
“I’m as conservative as anybody around this place,” he said. “And all the things that we’ve done in the three years that I’ve been Speaker have not violated any conservative principle. Not once.”
Asked whether he wanted the conservative groups to “stand down,” Boehner scoffed. “I don’t care what they do,” he replied.
Conservative groups had fired back at Boehner’s initial denunciation on Wednesday, but they held back on Thursday.
Democrats, however, praised his comments.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) weighed in on the feud Thursday, saying she “was encouraged” by Boehner’s remarks but isn’t yet banking on the notion that they foreshadow a new era of bipartisan cooperation.
“We’ll see what happens today,” she said.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) called them “a breath of fresh air.”

Environmentalism’s Endless Lies
By Alan Caruba
No President has any control over weather events. To FOE, however, this is a call for “critical environmental justice.”
The new Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Gina McCarthy, ahead of a trip to China, told a liberal advocacy group in Washington that she has devoted her life to protecting the environment: “And I really see no greater issue and no more urgent threat to public health than climate change.”
Capitol Hill staffers who signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C., healthcare exchange, called DC Health Link (DCHL), are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website.
The Hill obtained an email sent to staffers on Wednesday warning them, “it is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office.”
“Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL,” the email reads.
“Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office,” the email continues.
Capitol Hill workers had until Monday to sign up for healthcare in D.C., where members and their staffs are eligible for a generous employer healthcare subsidy from the government.
DC Health Link, the online healthcare portal for the District, has experienced a number of technical issues over the last few weeks.
Really sounds like a system we can trust????

Silicon Valley is escalating pressure on President Barack Obama to curb the U.S. government surveillance programs that vacuum personal information off the Internet and threaten the technology industry’s financial livelihood.
A coalition that includes Google, Apple, Yahoo, Facebook and Microsoft lashed out in an open letter printed Monday in major newspapers and a new website,reformgovernmentsurveillance.com.
The crusade united eight companies that often compete fiercely against each other, but now find themselves banding together to limit the potential damage from revelations about the National Security Agency’s snooping on Web surfers.
Twitter Inc., LinkedIn Corp. and AOL Inc. joined Google Inc., Apple Inc., Yahoo Inc., Facebook Inc. and Microsoft Corp. in the push for tighter controls over electronic espionage. The group is immersed in the lives of just about everyone who uses the Internet or a computing device.
As the companies’ services and products have become more deeply ingrained in society, they have become integral cogs in the economy. Their prosperity also provides them with the cash to pay for lobbyists and fund campaign contributions that sway public policy.
Monday’s public relations offensive is a by-product of documents leaked over the past six months by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The records reveal that the NSA has been obtaining emails and other personal data from major tech companies under secret court orders for the past five years and scooping up other data through unauthorized hacking into data centers.
