How can we tell what's true?

What if the Obama administration did know about the Fast and Furious scandal?

What if the administration did know the truth about what happened in Benghazi, Libya, but failed to act and rather decided to spin it to coincide with the campaign rhetoric that al-Qaida was on its heels and the tides of war were receding?

What if the administration did know the IRS was targeting conservative groups, hoping to intimidate them and anyone else who decided to have a conservative voice, especially during an election?

What if the administration did know the Department of Justice was targeting journalists by tapping their phones and watching their emails, especially James Rosen with Fox News, a conservative media outlet?

What if the administration did know that millions of Americans would lose their insurance because of Obamacare but said unequivocally during the campaign that they wouldn’t? What if they did know that, because of Obamacare, premiums would actually go up, not down, but decided to market it the way they did to win an election and to get the law passed?

What if the administration did know that the healthcare.gov website was nowhere near ready for launch on Oct. 1 – not only not allowing people to sign up, but also subjecting millions of Americans to security risks? What if they decided to go ahead with the launch anyway because to do otherwise would be an admission that conservatives, who wanted to delay or even repeal the law, were right all along during the government shutdown? What if they have known all along that Obamacare is not about health care but rather about redistribution of wealth and government control of our lives?

What if none of this is true? What if all of it is? Truth is, we don’t know what is true regarding this administration.

Yes we KNOW OBAMA LIED ABOUT

Yes we KNOW OBAMA LIED ABOUT HEALTH CARE! In 2010, in a panel discussion with Republicans Obama said "Up to 4 or5 million will lose their insurance "! The for the next two years Obama said, some 42 times, "if you like your health insurance you can keel it", on occasion Obama even added a period, so yes we KNOW he lied and we know the truth!

Well, there is only two

Well, there is only two possibilities here. Either he lied about these incidents, or he and his administration are the most incompetent we have EVER seen. You don't claim the CEO, Vice President and entire command staff knew nothing about anything, but also are efficient. Yes, the Ceo, MIGHT not know about everything going on; that's why he has a command staff, because they ARE suppose to know; or be fired.

It is scary that people like this are running our Country; very scary!!

"Truth is, we don’t know what

"Truth is, we don’t know what is true regarding this administration."

Exactly!! This is what I've been screaming for a long time!! They use CONFUSION to divide the people. If you have a confused people, you might as well have NO people; because they will never stand together. Confuse the truth, Confuse them on right and wrong, Confuse them on true intentions, Confuse them on moral beliefs (abortion is womens rights), Confuse them on science (we evolved from dumb animals), Confuse them on creation, Confuse them on the environment (mankind is going to destroy the earth) , Confuse them on individual responsibility (it's the diseases fault); and the list could go on.

One of Satan's titles is the "King of Babylon". The root word of Babylon is Babble. Babble in the ancient Hebrew is......wait for it............CONFUSION!!

Satan's biggest tool to divide, seperate and conquor the people is CONFUSION. Get people so CONFUSED and hung up on matarielistic possession, they won't know whether they are coming or going!! In this technology based society, we should be the most intelligent group of people in history; yet we are probably the least intelligent.

It is fairly easy to know if they are lying or not.

Don't look where the magician wants you to look. Look where the action is really going on.

Look, read, and study multiple sources of information and apply your own intelligence and then you'll find the truth.

Just remember Grucho Marx's question, "Who are you going to believe...me or your lying eyes?"

Congressional hearings

into almost all the above show that the Obama administration did know. Unfortunately, congress doesn't seem to know what to do next.

And myfather15 is right ... it's either ignorance or incompetence and either way it's scary.

Actually the answer to this LTE is rather easy. If Obama says it is true, it is not. Period. He is a proven liar and the people who re-elected him should be ashamed of their selves.

and don't forget Iran

O, and his fellow democrats, are complicit
in forcing Israel to defend themselves from annihilation
and risking the aftermath of that defense
and if the things in the letter are what we know
can you imagine the list of o's evils that we don't yet know?

OBAMA
Unpublished

Obama will go down in history as the most dishonest and incompetent administration in history. Up until now most of the news organizations have provided cover for his shortcomings but it's getting so bad that they're starting to turn on him. The saddest thing is that we're stuck with him for three more years. Obamacare will decimate the middleclass when all of the mandates kick in. His attempt to provide democrats cover by delaying much of the damage until after the 2014 elections is just another example of his deceit.

THE RULES

THE LYING GAME RULES
The rules are simple: he lies to many, many know he is lying, he knows many know he is lying, and he keep lying to many, and many will keep pretending to believe him.

I have said many times before.
The Liberals and Social-Democrats are too far down the political path with Obama to do anything, but deny everything and pretend it is some Right Wingers fault he lied.

Any thinking person knows

Any thinking person knows that this administration lies on a regular basis usually as a means to an end or to avoid the truth about what they really are doing. The sad part is that 1/2 of the voters don't seem to care. We indeed get the government we deserve.

We DO know, Frank!

We DO know that all these facts are true by the basic premis that a liar is a liar always. Never trust anything that comes from a liar, whether it be by deed or words.

Socialists MUST lie. How else

Socialists MUST lie. How else can you lead a supposedly free people willingly down a path that has FAILED everywhere it has been tried? And we all know the core Democrat constituency is easily led with a few promises of free stuff and bringing down the "rich". And like all socialist regimes, they always hurt the low income and middle class and NEVER touch the rich......because THEY are mostly the rich. Even the hard core Socialist/Communist countries ALWAYS had the "2%" while the 98% peasants were standing in line at the bread store to buy a product that never showed up. Lie, of course they lie. It's the only way to accomplish their mission comrade. No free people who were told the truth would ever let what's going on now happen to themselves and their children. Obamacare has exposed the depth of their lies. Apply that to everything they have been involved in and you will start to see the truth. If Obamacare has not awakened 51% of the voters in this country then we are lost.....because Obamacare is just the tip of the iceberg.....the part THEY could not hide. November 4, 2014.....it's YOUR choice.

Well...

If this is a serious question, which, forgive me, I doubt, here are two ways to find out what's true: 1. Get your news from multiple sources who have different viewpoints. 2. Spend more time in the public library, reading books and magazines from different points of view. Then you can make up your own mind with less likelihood of being misled by people who just have an axe to grind. It's really not that hard.

With all due respects

Over the Holidays, I was arround my family, who are almost ALL REPUBLICAN!! As much as it hurt me to say, I had to agree with my family with ALL of the points made by this LTE!! Obama has told SO MANY un-truths, that how can ANYONE with half a brain believe in ANYTHING which he says??!! I, being a moderate Democrat, can see very well what my family was saying about Obama and our government!! I don't care which party you belong to, "We just can not refuse to see that our country is "GOING SOUTH" under Obama's presidentcy!! As much as I; as a Democrat; HATE TO admit it THE REPUBLICANS have this debate NAILED!!!!

Moderate advice and prediction

I would ask ALL of the moderates to vote Rebublican or Independent in 2014!! The nation's debt JUST CAN NOT sustain Obama's plans for Obamacare and other social issues!! Repulicans AND Democrats HAVE GOT to start thinking about how to stop this negative debt "run-away train"!!!!

"He is a proven liar and the people who re-elected him should be ashamed of their selves"

Democrats believe that the best way to vote is Democrat. We were lied to and for that the moderates have to hang their heads, even if we only do it in secret!!

saying it for the third time

I have said it twice, and I will say it now, "I truly believe that Obama is going to be a "lame-duck" president for two long years after the 2014 elections!! I am predicting the Senate will go Republican in 2014, making Obama a "lame-duck" president as for as Congress is concerned!!"

"1. Get your news from multiple sources who have different viewpoints. 2. Spend more time in the public library, reading books and magazines from different points of view"

IN MY OPINION, THESE COMMENTS WOULD GO AS A ARGUEMENT TO THE OTHER LTE for today, BUT this is no arguement for this LTE! In my opinion, the multipul questions, asked by this LTE writer are very valid! I am a moderate Democrat, BUT AS a human being, I MUST see the truth as it has un-folded before our very eyes!!!!

Moderate Democrat

As a moderate Democrat, I wish that I could say that I am VERY SATISFIED with Obama's agenda, BUT AS A realist, I am by far, far un-satisfied!! Having to make this VERY TRUE statement pains me very, very much!! I will have to, at the very least, consider voting Independent or Republican in 2014 AND 2016!! This pains me very, very much to admit!

Actually, I do get my news from multiple different sources; because I get tired of hearing the same faces, no matter whether they are conservative or liberal.

But, do me a favor; watch the Barbara Walters interview tonight on 20/20. I want you to see this, HARD HITTING interview. This interview that gets down to the "nuts&bolts" of what's going on in our Country. THEN, tell me to watch other sources for reliable information!!

This interview tonight is nothing but a "Damage control" interview for Obama!! Why? Because he has the lamestream media, in his pocket!! His poll numbers are disasterous, His signature Bill is a complete disaster, His fingerprint is on so many scandals, we can't list them; They know just another promise they made (healthcare.gov would be working by the end of November) is about to be broken. So what are they doing? A cozy little interview with Mrs. Walters.

Now THAT, is a fine piece of investigative journalism, right? Maybe she will ask him ""If you were a superhero and you could have one super power, what would it be?" like she did last year!! Wow, now that is a good question to ask a sitting President. Certainly let's not ask him about healthcare or the numerous scandals!!

This is another quote from Mrs. Walters about her last interview with the Obamas.

""They're very...I don't know how to put it, I don't want to gush. They're very cute, and they're very funny in this interview together."

YES, the woman actually said she didn't want to "GUSH".

And now they are advertising this interview tonight, like it's a new sandwich at McDonalds!! Why? Because they want everyone possible to view it, because it's going to be SOFT AND COZY for them. It's going to play on peoples PERSONAL EMOTIONS, just after a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!!

White House=Bill O'Reilly??? Ppppfffftt!! We scoff at Mr. O'Reilly!! He is weak and pathetic!! We are going straight to the hard hitting interviews, Mrs. Walters!!
