Using Lies and Distortions to Distract!

Using lies and distortions to distract the public is on old tactic used by everyone in politics.  However, some are much better at it than others.  Enter Van Jones, Obama's Green Jobs Czar who is an admitted communist and 911 conspiracy theory member of STORM.  Jones resigned this weekend over his past radical behavior and comments, but Jones, in typical liberal denial, blamed the right wing for a smear campaign as the reason he resigned.  Nope, it had nothing to do with what “he” did or said; it had to be those evil right wingers using lies and distortions.

However, Jones is not the only one who appears to be using lies and distortions to distract.  Let’s look at how Jones and about 30 other people became Czars.  If you look at the folks Obama appointed to his cabinet, you see a pattern of lies and distortions designed to distract the American people.  From Tim Geithner, the Treasury Secretary, to Governor Bill Richardson, to Former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle, to Nancy Killefer all had problems telling the truth.  When these folks were appointed and it came out they were all taxes cheats or were facing inquiries into some of their actions, the right was accused of lies and distortions, but most of the facts did come out and they were the ones using lies and distortions.  That is, except Geithner who was confirmed Treasury Secretary, despite he had problems paying his taxes.  Obama said then "I think I screwed up," he told CNN. "And, you know, I take responsibility for it and we're going to make sure we fix it so it doesn't happen again" (BBC News, 200).  That was translated to mean he will not let those pesky confirmation hearings get in the way. Lies & distortions?

Why get bogged down in confirmation hearings, when he can just appoint Czars to advance his socialist agenda.  He now has about 30 or so Czars flying under the radar and answering only to him.  These unconfirmed individuals have access to Government resources and will be influencing policy, all without the proper vetting that Obama could not get right in the beginning.

For key positions, like Secretary of State, he nominated Hillary (the old keep your friends close and your enemies closer) and then appointed some Czars to do his bidding, like Mideast Peace Czar: George Mitchell, Afghanistan Czar: Richard Holbrooke, Sudan Czar: J. Scott Gration, and Terrorism Czar: John Brennan.  So instead of having the Secretary of State working the issues, he has a team of Czars do it, and Hillary is free to travel around the world and look unimportant.

So when someone like Van Jones complains about the right using lies and distortions to distract, I have to laugh.  After all, his position and the 30 others are all an effort to lie and distort the real Obama agenda.
