So, you see the problem? Once the belief has been formed in the mind of the subject, and he is addicted to a particular viewpoint, nothing on
this earth, or in this universe, can convert him to the alternate reality.
Where do I start explaining exactly how wrong this line of reasoning is?
Yes... No one trusts officials.
Actually, they misdirect, rather than lie.
We have weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
This was not a lie. Iraq did have a weapon of mass destruction. It was called "oil". Saddam Husein announced that very year in 2001 that he would be
exchanging oil for Euros. If he had set a trend, and other nations followed, the US Dollar would no longer be the reserve currency, and the United
States would collapse. As soon as Saddam announced this to the world, the US Dollar started to collapse. Go back and look at the Foreign Exchange
prices leading up to 9/11. You'll see that after Saddam's announcement the US Dollar began to fall precipitously, it was as if the US had been struck
by an atomic bomb. The fall was so steep, that a few more days and the entire wealth of the US would have been wiped out. As soon as 9/11 occurred,
miraculously, the US dollar recovered. The US hadn't even announced who they thought did 9/11, much less indicate they would use that as an excuse to
invade Iraq. But, the investors knew immediately what 9/11 meant, so they bought dollars. They knew this was just a pretext to invade Iraq and remove
the threat to the almighty dollar.
Libya tried a similar thing too, Muammar Gaddafi announced he was replacing the US Dollar with Special African Dinars made of Gold, immediately after
he announced this at the African Conrference, Libya's troubles began, and Gaddafi too is now dead. No more threat to the almighty US Dollar.
So, the politicians aren't exactly lying. They are just misleading, and not telling the exact truth. They say WMD, but they don't specify which WMD
they are refering to. They told no one that the real WMD was oil currency.
The Israelis have no nuclear weapons.
Where exactly would the Israelis "test fire" these nukes?
Sadam Hussein was involved in 9/11.
Indirectly, he was. He was the cause of 9/11. If he didn't suggest exchanging oil for euros, there would have been no need for a 9/11.
12 arabs hijacked planes and flew them into the WTC towers on 9/11.
Maybe they were programmed by mind control drugs etc.. just like the shooter James Holmes?
A lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK.
Maybe that's exactly what happened?
I didn't have sex with that woman.
Technically, Bill Clinton was correct. He was being truthful. He did not have sex in the "biblical" meaning of the term.
Barry Obama intends on closing guantanamo in his first day in office.
He changed his mind after he entered office, because he realized that it would be the only solution available to him to control the "birther" movement
that would arise later in his term.
Maybe these lies convinced you to trust public officials, but not me.
The difference between us, is that I try to understand what the public official is really saying. I know that when they speak, they often do not
actually lie, but speak in vague references that could misdirect those not listening carefully, and that they are, in their own clever way, always
telling and revealing some other truth, for those that have ears to hear.
When hired for a job, we have to show a birth certificate and a social security card.
Sorry, he got the job already.
