Liars at the White House….keep getting deeper and deeper into the lies…

Stinking LIARS, something you don’t often hear me say, but READ THIS ARTICLE!

Here’s an important part that is discussed in the fascinating Jamie Rosen report with Martha McCallum, a video in the article I link here.

“But W. Neil Eggleston, White House counsel, sent a letter to Chaffetz late Monday saying Rhodes would not attend.

He cited what appeared to be an executive privilege-related claim, asserting that such a senior presidential adviser’s appearance “threatens the independence and autonomy of the President, as well as his ability to receive candid advice and counsel.” For those reasons, he said, “we will not make Mr. Rhodes available to testify.”

So, Martha asks Jamie “So Ben Rhodes was able to speak to the New York Times and not worry about autonomy and independence for the president but can’t speak before officials elected by the American people?”  “And Earnest said this isn’t about Executive Privilege but now he’s using it?”   HUH?

And, in the typical BS smokescreen, get this!:  Josh Earnest says “….it is Republicans who should answer “for saying a lot of things about the Iran deal that turned out not to be true.”

Like what?  

Remember, Ben Rhodes said that he got a lot of media to “echo” his lies about the Iran Nuclear deal, a deal he was very instrumental in and a situation he had no experience or background in at all.

WOW.

  1. It’s so surreal to hear Earnest speak.
    Does he really believe what he says?
    To see a soul sold so cheap…

    Lying – D.C.’s favorite indoor sport. The unwritten but primal requirement in the job description of bureacrats.

    I mean, hell . . . we all know where the bodies are buried, but nobody wants the unpleasant job of exhuming them and having to endure the odor. It’s like when Hillary talks:

    She lies. We know she’s lying. She knows we know she’s lying. But she’s gonna continue lying, and Democrats and “Never Trumpers” will vote for her despite her litany of lies and coverups that make Nixon look like an altar boy and Sharpton genuflect when she takes the lectern.

    Let’s face it: history is merely a collection of distortions, spins, propaganda, and other lies that large numbers of people have agreed to accept as true. Go to Russia and ask who won WWII in Europe. They certainly won’t tell you it was the United States.

    The worst lies are those which have just enough truth in them to be able to withstand superficial investigation. Professional politicians obviously believe that we (especially average citizens in Flyoverland) are abysmally stupid.

    They lie by choosing which story to release, how much of it, and when. They lie by leaving out crucial facts, and they lie by releasing unfavorable material late on Friday afternoons before a long weekend.

    As someone once said, there are lies, there are damned lies, and there are statistics. Gubmint officials spin statistics, they alter statistics, and they create statistics. And if research reveals statistics unfavorable to their agenda, they simply ignore them.

    Look, everybody lies from time to time. Many times we tell “white lies” to avoid hurting people, or we use euphemistic language during times of grief or stress, or we tell kids fables and myths to modify their behavior.

    Like the preacher who came upon a group of boys surrounding a dog. Fearing that they might be planning to harm the animal, he asked them what they were doing.

    “This dog is a stray that’s been hanging around the neighborhood, and each of us wants to take him home. So we decided to have a contest to see who can tell the biggest lie, and that’s the one who gets to keep him.”

    The preacher lectured them on the evils of lying, finally concluding with, “and when I was your age, I never told a lie.”

    For several moments there was silence, and the preacher decided that his sermon had had an effect on them. The boys looked at each other, and finally the tallest one said, “O.K. You win. You take the dog.”

    Yogi Berra pretty much summed up the way people tell lies about each other with this little quote: “Half the lies people tell about me aren’t true.”

    I am still puzzling over what made Rhodes go off the reservation. I heard a commentator opine that he would not have said what he did without approval of the WH. Now that makes no sense at all. But then again… One thing is for sure, no one does anything without a plan. A distraction? From what….

  4. @Ed,
    Yes, so right. This assumes, of course, that he actually had a “soul” to begin with!

  5. Baysider says:

    I heard him (or possible his attorney – not clear who was speaking) grilled on this in an interview yesterday. Snipe-y, smarmy twisting of facts. “Why is Congress who lied about this situation wanting to talk to the only man (Rhodes) who told the truth about the issue?” What!?

    Can you imagine the response if a Bush official had told the NYT that they crafted a narrative about Iraq that they thought the public would believe but knew it was made up at the time? Oh … wait a minute. I think we have seen such a reaction.

  6. Baysider says:

    PS – Congressional ‘lies’ were the dire warnings about the consequences of the accord and revealing facts like Iran has to have long enough notice of inspections to be able to completely disassemble and clear any suspected sites.

  7. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider, what’s real clear is that the leftwingers can say any lie they like, knowing the media won’t jump on it…and that the public heard it the way they want to spin it.
    Yes, Rhodes, the ‘only man who told the truth’ as he admits to knowing the ‘echo chamber’ of leftwing media would back his lies….the man who had zero experience in this field but was largely responsible for putting this ‘deal’ together….as Congress warned it was impossible ….
    Then the money; Now it’s WE who are supporting Iran nukes and their support of killers against us. ironic. Thanks, Obama…you jerk.

    Bunkerville..’went off the reservation?’ Not sure what you mean there…he’s stuck pretty close to the WH memes…

    Ed and John….that’s one job I could NEVER do…imagine having to keep track of what you CAN say and what you can’t? And then, in THIS admin, remembering what the lies are and making sure you add them?

    bocopro…yes, we all know about liars, but THIS situation was even beyond that….nobody’s even talking about how Rhodes had so little experience and crafted this mess of a nuke deal….maybe that’s the idea; get the public riled about a lie, they won’t talk about what a STINKIN’ DEAL this was …for US..

  8. If you like your nuke deal, you can keep your nuke deal.

    Ann..does it again….talk about lies…

  10. That’s odd that Ann got that confused.

  11. Sparky says:

    This is getting so confusing and weird, I’m getting confused about who lied about what when. Our country is in deep trouble.

    I’m hoping that Trump’s attitude toward women actually allows American men to, once again, have the ability to say to a co worker “You look great today! Good color on you!” or “May I hold the door open for you?” That’d be nice. I never minded it in the past…not till the idiot lefties got involved.

  13. Imp says:

    Trumps not the only one with an attitude….

    Hillary Clinton campaign surrogate Ed Rendell said that Donald Trump will be hurt by the fact that there are more “ugly” women in America than “attractive women.”
    Rendell, the former Pennsylvania governor, told the Washington Post that Trump’s comments on the fairer sex will hurt him among ugly women.

    “Will he have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? Sure,” Rendell said. “For every one he’ll lose 1½ , two Republican women. Trump’s comments like ‘You can’t be a 10 if you’re flat-chested,’ that’ll come back to haunt him. There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women. People take that stuff personally.”

  14. geeez2014 says:

    IMP…Rendell is SUCH a jerk…..
    And I believe women will go for Trump…I believe many of them feel like I do about men not being shamed and ridiculed for having given a nice compliment.

    Leftwinger Craig reminds us of this:

    “The G20 London was in 2009 (fresh stuff) and part of an 8 day trip across Europe. If that pissed you off, you must have been totally outraged by this.
    When President Bush traveled to England in the fall of 2003 for a state visit, the Guardian
    reported that “Mr. Bush, his wife, Laura, and a 700-strong entourage worthy of a travelling medieval monarch, flew into Heathrow airport.” And the Telegraph broke it down further, reporting that “Mr. Bush will be accompanied by a retinue consisting of 250 members of the Secret Service, 150 advisers from the National Security Department, 200 representatives of other government departments and 50 political aides.” Also traveling with the president were “his personal chef, personal assistants, four cooks, medics and the presidential 15-strong sniffer dog team,” according to the report.”

    Craig says if Obama’s entourage bugged me, this must have, too…..
    Yes, Craig, Republicans don’t just chide the other side…if it’s ridiculous to have MOST of this entourage, it’s ridiculous no matter who it is.
    With Skype for getting input from staff back home, this shouldn’t happen anymore AT ALL.
    We understand the cooks and dogs…travel is a very dangerous thing for any president. I’d have hoped Obama could streamline it with the technology even available since Bush was out.
    Thanks.

    And Craig, glad you’re reading GeeeZ. Hoping you can start to consider 2 sides of issues, too.
