Truth. Perhaps one of the most powerful words in our history. Kingdoms have risen and fell, relationships have been sealed or broken and, ultimately, the destination of our immortal soul will be decided, all on the basis of truth. For the majority of us, truth is the elixir that fuels our moral compass. However, for those of us openly fighting tyranny, revealing truth is also the “holy grail” of our collective efforts. Overall, truth means different things to different people, that much we can probably agree on. And once you throw “absolute truth” into the mix, it really gets complex. However, this article will not go nearly that deep, for it doesn’t need to. Because the evidence needed to reveal the lack of truth by our chosen dictator is not hidden, and has even been widely publicized. So much so that I am still sometimes amazed that we have not thrown off these chains of tyranny and taken our country back yet. But, that is a topic for a different article. So, let us pause to reflect upon the circumstance that we now find ourselves in as Americans, and how the person presently occupying the White House evicted truth when he took up residence there.
While doing some research, I came across an article on NBC entitled, “Obama tells heckler: No executive action to halt deportations.” Contained therein was a quote attributed to Obama that went like this,
“If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws through Congress, then I would do so,” he added. “But we are also a nation of laws – that’s part of our tradition. And so the easy way out is to try to yell and pretend that I can do something by violating our laws. What I’m proposing is the harder path which is to use our democratic processes to achieve the same goal that you want to achieve.”
C’mon, are you kidding me? I do not know what to make of this quote. It appears, by all accounts, that Obama has finally read the US Constitution; a document that he professes to be an expert in. Moreover, it appears that all the tireless work by the alternative media has paid off and now finally, finally Obama is having a “crisis of conscience” and wants to follow our Founding Documents. Perhaps the Obamacare debacle has injected a much needed dose of humility into Mr. Soetoro? Maybe the recent dive in his poll numbers has prompted Obama to re-think his blatant abuse of Executive Orders? Nah, I wouldn’t bet on it. In my opinion, this is just one more example of the lies perpetrated by the most “double-minded” president in the history of these United States.
For most people, the default position that we take when we first get to know someone is that we will believe them until they give us a reason not to believe them. I think that this phenomenon occurs because we see ourselves as truthful, and we wish to see that same truth in others. Unfortunately, we know that wishes rarely come true. In that, we will often take strangers at “face value,” sometimes to our detriment. On occasion, and it is rare, someone comes on to the world stage who “takes the population by storm” and whose charm and charisma seem to mesmerize even the most solidly grounded members of the society. Historically, these people prove to be dangerous. And, much to the population's detriment, they usually end up holding the decision of life and death in their wicked hands. (Obamacare “death panels” being the modern, more civilized version of the extermination ovens of WWII) Too early to tell if Obama will follow the same path as his predecessors, for I have no crystal ball. However, I can look back at Obama’s past promises to see what kind of fruit he bears in regards to truth. And with that, I can make a “good guess” regarding if what Obama promises today, will mean anything tomorrow.
If you catch a person lying about one thing, do you assume that they are lying about everything? Hmmm, tough call. What about if that same person has not just lied about one thing, but five things or perhaps ten? For most of us, catching a person in one lie would be enough to end, or seriously strain, a relationship. Two or more lies, well you’re just plain foolish to trust anyone with that kind of track record. However, Obama seems to shatter this generally held guideline about holding a person to their word. He seems to lie with impunity, and oddly enough, some people still support, and more astoundingly, believe him. So, let us take a moment to examine just SOME of the lies by Obama since he took office. This list is not new, nor is it all inclusive. Other writers, more skillful than myself, have written excellent articles outlining the voluminous lies told by Obama. Do a quick search, and you should find them. The following is just a smattering of what Obama has promised. All of this came from the website, obamalies.net, and I give that site full credit for the flowing list.

So, there you have it. After examining the previous list, can you ever believe another word that comes out of Obama’s mouth? I submit that to do so, may put you in peril. Back to the point of why I wrote this article in the first place. Obama says, “No Executive Orders to end deportation” today. So, can we expect, based on his record, to have one signed by year’s end?
