It is certainly nothing new to have politicians lie about things, just about everything actually, but Democrats have added a new tool to their arsenal, making the truth look absurd.
A Change in Tone
It used to be, if a campaign was caught doing something illegal, immoral or just plain shady, they would lie about their involvement, deny any knowledge of the issue or just ignore it until the news cycle forgot about it.
That is no longer the plan for the Democrats, instead they have taken to broadcasting it loud and clear while at the same time branding it as a conspiracy theory. This way, there is no danger of too many people supporting the idea, because who wants to be lumped in with the tin foil hat wearing lunatics, it is actually a brilliant strategy.
Rather than fight the allegations being held against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Convention, they simply say it is nothing more than fantasy from those crazy crackpots that think the moon landing was faked. This of course, along with the media collusion that was proven in the DNCLeaks, instantly kills the traction of any story that makes Hillary look bad.
While many expected this election to be extra dirty, this new tactic is actually keeping it looking clean, even if the tactics used are actually twice as dirty. Not that Hillary isn’t still spending millions on negative attack ads against Donald Trump, because she is, but by not defending as many of the hits against her and simply saying that it is the crazy people, her campaign is getting away with not having to debate these facts in the media.
How Long Can They Keep It Up?
While it has been working well so far, especially with Hillary Clinton’s health issues where her camp may have even been the ones to release the “body double” photos so they could instantly kill that story by once again saying it was the “deplorables”, those nutjobs that follow Trump, making up more crazy stories, the tactics time may be running out.
Hillary can only go to that well so many times during the debates, if her every response is “you people are crazy”, she will be the one that looks to be unstable, not Trump or his supporters. If she ever actually has a press conference that allows real journalists to ask her pointed questions rather than pre-approved ones, that tactic will fail there as well.
Hillary and the DNC have convinced more people that the Russians are trying to corrupt the American political process by hacking the DNC’s emails, than are actually looking at the corruption those emails uncovered. The FBI is now investigating Russian hackers and not the DNC even though the hacked emails proved the corruption and collusion exists.
“The DNC is the victim of a crime, an illegal cyber-attack by Russian state-sponsored agents who seek to harm the Democratic Party and progressive groups in an effort to influence the presidential election,” Interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile said in a statement.
“There’s one person who stands to benefit from these criminal acts, and that’s Donald Trump,” she added. “Not only has Trump embraced Putin, he publicly encouraged further Russian espionage to help his campaign.”
This was put out by the DNC to attempt to discredit the information exposed by Guccifer 2.0, even suggesting that some of the documents may have been forged. Guccifer 2.0 has publicly stated that he/she has no connection to the Russians.
It isn’t surprising that the DNC would try and create fear surrounding cyber security and hurl blame at Donald Trump and the Russian government, but is that enough to distract from the content of these emails. There is a letter that directly addressed how to handle donors who submitted “pay-to-play letters” to ensure their donations were put into the “operating amount.”
Also in the latest leak was a list of over 100,000 donations dating all the way back to 2008, including some high-profile donors who received international ambassadorships from President Barack Obama in return for their pledges to both the DNC and Obama’s Organizing for Action nonprofit.
Matthew Barzun donated more than $3.5 million to Obama and the DNC. In return, he served as U.S. Ambassador to Sweden from 2009 to 2011, worked as President Obama’s National Finance Chair during his 2012 reelection campaign, and is currently U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
Julius Genachowski, was appointed the chair of the FCC for his generous donation of just under $3.5 million. Tony West paid a little over a million dollars to be appointed the Associate Attorney General on March 9, 2012, the very same day his money is recorded in DNC’s ledger. William Eacho received the Ambassadorship to Austria for raising a mere $950k for Obama, that’s a steal.
Basically, President Obama and the DNC sold government positions off to the highest bidder while Hillary watched as Secretary of State. Based on what we know of The Clinton Foundation, there is no reason to expect any difference in operating procedure should Hillary be elected.
Of course, CNN reported that “There appear to be no damaging emails in this batch.” At least when you buy CNN, they stay bought!
Just One Tactic Out of Many
Reframing the truth as the absurd is just one tactic out of the many employed by the liberal left, the others are still used daily as well. Another of the widely used tactics is to deflect their wrong doings with true or false wrong doings of the Bush or Regan Administrations. Being able to say, see, they did it too seems to be vindication for their crimes, even if it is all based on lies.
Just a few days ago, Nina Burleigh from Newsweek penned an article titled “THE GEORGE W. BUSH WHITE HOUSE ‘LOST’ 22 MILLION EMAILS”; you have to go through most of this damning article that makes the number of “lost” Clinton emails seem insignificant, before you find out that the emails were found and had simply been mislabeled.
A bit different than deleting emails, wiping the hard drive with Bleach Bit and then taking a hammer to all your Blackberry’s so that not even the FBI could retrieve info from them. But the truth is buried so far down in the article, that most will never see it, or will be so pissed off at everyone except Hillary that it won’t matter.
Ignoring facts is another popular tactic with the Hillary campaign, she continued to claim she never sent and classified emails even after the FBI had confirmed that she did. She simply ignores what the FBI publicly stated and still claims she never sent them.
Another great tactic all politicians use is good old fashioned lying, but Hillary has taken it to a new level by telling different lies to different groups and she manages to not have anyone call her out on it. She told the American public that she did not send classified emails while at the same time telling the FBI that she didn’t know that “C” meant classified.
She told us that her previous concussion is not a matter to discuss as it does not and has not impacted her work, but told the FBI that she could only work at the State Department for a few hours a day and could not recall every briefing she received as an excuse for not properly handling classified information.
Her campaign told us that her “fainting” at the 9/11 ceremony was from pneumonia, but she hugged and kissed people at the location and went to her daughter’s apartment to rest and spend time with her granddaughter. Who would expose all those people and their granddaughter to pneumonia?
The lies upon lies pile up so high that even the truth is now absurd!
