Not long ago, Joe Biden told Americans if they got the vaccine, they wouldn’t get COVID. Now the CDC is whipping up a national panic over so called “breakthrough cases,” in which the vaccinated are getting the virus. Former congressman and presidential candidate, Dr. Ron Paul, skewers the lies of the administration, writing at LewRockwel.com (abridged):
It’s not shocking to discover that a US Administration lies and deceives the electorate.
For government on all levels, lying to the American people is as American as apple pie. Sometimes the liars are held to account for their deception, but most often they are not.
Watching these early months of the Biden Administration it’s hard not to think that lying, deceiving, and manipulation is rising to a whole new level.
The US is not finally leaving the Afghan people alone to run their country as they see fit.
Just this week, Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of US Central Command (CENTCOM) announced that the US is increasing – not ending – its airstrikes on Afghanistan. The US would be pulling regular military troops out of the country (though likely keeping CIA, Special Forces, and mercenaries on the ground), but it would continue to bomb Afghanistan using “over the horizon” facilities from the Persian Gulf.
Also, just over a week ago President Biden told us that if we got the vaccine we would not get Covid.
Then a few days later his own CDC released data from a Massachusetts study showing that 78 percent of the people who caught Covid were fully vaccinated.
Is it any wonder Americans have lost all faith in “the science” as it pours forth from the politicized “scientists” in charge of US public health institutions?
Governments lie. We understand that.
It is the nature of politics and power. In the absence of independent institutions to hold government accountable, however, such lies become indistinguishable from facts, and soon “freedom” itself becomes slavery, as Orwell wrote. Let’s hope more of America wakes up soon.
