10 Lies Republicans Love To Use To Terrify Americans

fox-news-lies-1Since it’s Halloween, I thought I’d throw together a quick list of 10 lies Republicans love to use to terrify Americans. Because let’s face it, nearly the entire Republican party platform is built upon blatant misinformation and lies. And the worst part is, millions of Americans actually believe this nonsense.


Well, let’s get started.

1) President Obama’s spending is out of control: Actually the president has reduced deficits by about $1 trillion over the last 6+ years.

2) ISIS is the biggest threat the United States has ever faced: Yes, they’re a threat that does need to be dealt with. But they’re not the “biggest threat” the United States has ever dealt with. The over the top fear mongering being pushed by Republicans about this group is almost comical at times. I would say Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia were slightly more dangerous and larger threats to this country.

3) Christianity is under attack: No, it’s not. The only thing that’s “under attack” is the unconstitutional way conservatives are constantly trying to force their religious views on others.

4) Obama is going to take away your guns: Well, after six years as president (with only two left), when exactly does he plan this massive gun confiscation?

5) “Obamacare” will eliminate millions of jobs: It’s comically ironic that the first year the Affordable Care Act really rolled out to most Americans, unemployment dropped below 6% and we’ve seen the best year for job growth since Bill Clinton was president.


6) President Obama is destroying our freedoms: Anyone who believes this please, tell me, what freedoms have you lost these last 5+ years? And I don’t mean your “right” to deny homosexuals the right to marry or control what form of birth control a woman you don’t know uses. I mean personal freedoms that you had prior to 2008 that you no longer have today.

7) The world has never seen the kind of chaos like we’ve these last 6+ years: Really? I beg to differ. WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Cold War, nuclear missiles in Cuba, the Iran/Iraq War. The world has always been filled with chaos. Now with the internet, social media and 24/7 hour news that’s dependent on driving fear for ratings, we’re hearing about it much more often now.

8) Voter fraud is rampant: No, it’s not. In fact, even Republican-led investigations have concluded that actual legitimate voter fraud is so inconsequential and rare, the fact that this is even a topic being discussed in this country is comical.

9) Climate change is a massive liberal hoax: Yes, because scientists from all over the world have come together in an extensively elaborate plot to perpetuate the lie of human-made climate change… but there’s nothing at all suspicious about the fact that essentially every single one of the Republican party’s energy policies favors big oil; an industry that would lose hundreds of billions of dollars if we moved away from fossil fuels to greener forms of energy to try to combat climate change.

10) President Obama’s economy is destroying this country: Then why are there so many Republicans all across the country running for re-election citing the overwhelmingly positive economic numbers that have occurred within their states during the last 5+ years? Wait, I know how this one works. When the numbers are positive, that’s due to policies supported by Republicans. But when the numbers are negative, that’s all Obama’s fault. Pretty convenient, right?

Well I’ll go ahead and wrap this up. Hit me up on Twitter and let me know some of your favorite right-wing lies Republicans really want Americans to believe.

    Did you read todays Economic indicators? GDP growth 3.5%, Unemployment 5.9%, jobless claims, 246,000, Dow @ 17,300+, Consumer confidence up, gas prices down.

    it seldom gets better than this.

    HOW so many could be so fooled for so long.

    NAZI Germans must have felt like today’s Reds, except they had the VERY REAL THREAT of imprisonment hanging over their heads. They were oblivious to hitler’s camps, could justify stealing their Jewish neighbor’s savings and property. Denying civil rights to Jews became “Business as usual”.

    It was only after the bodies were stacked that their psyche’s collapsed. But after Obama hands over the White House to Hillary, the REDS will be a Khruschev to Stalin upon his death. They will rewrite history AGAIN, cover up their voter frauds and election crimes, pretend it was all Obama’s fault and actually REMAIN, the greatest single threat to Democracy America will ever face.

    These are the SSAME people who fired on FT Sumpter in 1861 and who fired on kent State in 1970. The pepper sprayed unarmed citizens in Oakland and smuggled a killer cop out of Ferguson, MO this year. Has that indictment come down yet? Most likely never will?

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      And yet YOUR President is wholesale killing millions of people and denying them their Pot. (Paraphrasing your words for clarity)

        The pig in my profile pic is my pet. She is intelligent, affectionate, clean and capable of learning, unlike the tea party…… 🙂

      • FuzzyBunnyFeet

        I’m unsure that “onik” was supposed to be translated as “oink”.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        He/She/Shim amuses me to no end. It’s like I’m dancing a cat toy in front of him and he endlessly entertains me. The Pot really does make him funny. Wonder what he was like back when he was a ‘suit’ at that Law Firm. Probably nowhere near as silly.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Silly pig; and she enjoys wine with dinner and a little nuzzling in the moonlight too?

      • felipe63

        Haven’t tried giving her wine but she sure does like beer, and yes, she does like to snuggle, day or night. With a body temp of 104, she is quite warm.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        TMI. But good for you for finding that special someone. You’ve filled that vacuous hole in your heart with the warmth of another. I couldn’t be happier for you.

      • felipe63

        What happened to the being civil agreement I thought we had reached?
        That didn’t last long…….

      • felipe63

        BTW – using the word ‘vacuous’ as adjective for a ‘hole in my heart’ makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        he is not particularly intelligent and certainly possesses the “warmth” ( and intellect??) of a coelecanth
        =======================================
        but he is fun to annoy

      • felipe63

        I guess using the english language properly is only for us over-educated, soy chai latte quaffing, tree hugging, homo loving, west coast elitist…..

        and BTW – that comparison is insulting to coelacanths 🙂

      • regressive teaparty trash

        care to poke fun at the “pig” in my avatar???
        she– and females of her aesthetic and anatomical stature- are what have adorned my duvets for a long long time–
        she is NOT 104 degrees; thankfully– necrophilia is not my ‘bag’

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Did I reference ‘her’ as room temperature? Did I reference ‘you’ as room temperature? Did I ask for a descriptive of your choice of bedding accessories?
        Or did I ask you to list what your Principals are as a Progressive? You do have principals don’t you?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Wow, how original. Some other guy/girl with a moniker of Steve Brains says exactly the same thing. It’s like you two are conjoined twins.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        the ” youcantgetridofmethateasy” is the small dicked loser regressive who used to go by the names ” ITISNOTMYBALL” and ”ITISOBAMASFAULT” and he got thrown off twice; so hes back and easy to see and easier to annihilate again

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Actually no there Capt. Oblivious. I clean your clock regularly; he obviously couldn’t. But don’t let that stop you from your stated goal.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        as all of my time keeping pieces are digital ( except my 3*** watches) cleaning my clock is not only a poor choice of aging infantile metaphors; but as of yet U haven’t remotely done or written anything other than accuse me of following some dead ‘progressive’ woman who lived in the 1920’s
        Im more interested in a woman such as marilyn lange; for OBVIOUS reasons

        Yes she’s dead, but her and your legacy lives on in ‘Planned Parenthood’. Unless you’re about to deny that 1973 was not your coming out party, try to walk back from your promotion of Abortion.

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Really? so Mr. Balz’ IP wasn’t logged? And if so, how am I here pestering the bejesus out you? Why not file a grievance with the webmaster and request my IP be blocked. Why waste your time perpetuating a myth?

      • regressive teaparty trash

        (a) how would U know his name? (b) I don’t know any name associated with those two needledicked regressive scumbag losers (c) I like you; no need 2 annoy the webmaster about you– U are funny to rattle
        ========================================
        (d) this site informed me that it is YOU who is following me- ergo U need me!!!

        PRAISE JEEEEESUS!!! pass that tax free tithe!

        Have you ever heard/read the term ‘libtard’?

        Teatard is just the name calling coming back at them. TPP love to dish it out shit, but they can’t take it when it gets shoved right back in their face.

      • FuzzyBunnyFeet

        Do we need to sink to their level?

      • felipe63

        I rather not, but taking the high road doesn’t always work, does it? Sometimes you have to play ‘smash mouth’ politics as Norman Goldman calls it.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        I was not the one to invent lies: they were created in a society divided by class and each of us inherited lies when we were born. It is not by refusing to lie that we will abolish lies: it is by eradicating class by any means necessary.

        Oh the homogenization of Mankind, the Communists dream. Too bad that someone has to be the leader and someone has to die trying.

      • felipe63

        I’m not sure what this has to do with anything I posted but sure, whatever…….

      • regressive teaparty trash

        he is a special kinda special; aint he?

      • felipe63

        Yeah he/she is. I should have listened to you yesterday. At least I know I was civil. A mistake to be sure and one that won’t be repeated.

        SHORTBUS Special!

      • regressive teaparty trash

        and whom do YOU “think” would be our best president among the living americans today?
        also– it is by REFUSING TO LIE that we abolish lies……..
        NOT ” it is not by refusing to lie that we abolish lies”
        ==========================================
        try to say things properly in order to be taken seriously.
        here is a novel idea for you which I have acquiesced to:
        go create a business ( or more than one) and excel at it; make money– invest wisely- stay in superb shape financially/ spiritually( NOT religiously)/ socially and PHYSICALLY and im willing to wager that JES’ MAYBE U wont be so pissed off at everything around you
        =====================================
        in the mean time,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, good luck

        None, as the conditions as of present, as relegated to the entrenched Progressive Bureaucrats, as denigrated by the RINO’s & DINO’s, as bastardized by the Courts, as disgraced by Presidents past, None. It’s too late to save it. You’ll see.

        Ah….thanks for the info

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        I wonder why? Could it be because this site is titled ‘Forward Progressives’? Kind of sounds like a Soviet Cold War Propaganda Poster. Are all detractors of the ‘Progressive’ way of life always treated such?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Really? Why the fixation on this Ballz fellow? What did he ever do to you that has you all constipated up like this? I am not the guy. But if you think you can use me as your punching bag in the mean time, please do.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        I don’t know any ” balz/ballz fellow—– the only 2 I hav found ou about and subsequently annoyed ”en mass” are GIAN KEYS — an unemployed 42 yr old regressive crybaby living in los angelas,,,,,and JOHN MCCARTHY who is a 58 yr old MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY math professor who –on oct 2 2102– went crazy in class and started smashing himself on windows then got naked in the class he was lecturing and went nutty and was handcuffed and arrested by MSU police ( see: photo ) and they sent him to the hospital
        =======================================
        I do my home work when needed
        GIAN KEYS now goes by the username TOO EASY
        JOHN MCCARTHY was going by MOSQUITO until about a week ago when the site moderators threw him off

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Well then add me to your list of detractors who find you amusing in a simplistic sort of way. What I don’t understand is, why haven’t the two protagonists of this message board come after me? Are they expecting you to do their dirty work?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Really? and you’re a ‘shover’?

      • felipe63

        I can be when needed. If you’re rude with me first, I will give it right back. I start out treating people how I would like to be treated, If that doesn’t work, then yeah I’ll treat them how they treat other people.

        See how that works, you weren’t rude, I wasn’t rude either.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Gee, an innovative idea on a message board dedicated to regurgitating self-loathing.
        Have you ever wondered why you hang here? I visit because I see souls that need re-adjusting. What do you do here?

      • felipe63

        I try to be the voice of non-partisan reality. if you have the inclination, look through my comment history for this page you’ll see I’m equal opportunity when it comes debunking BS. I have taken both Clifton & Schweiz to task for spouting BS a lot more than I’ve been a cheerleader for them.

        The 2nd biggest problem with politics in this country (after money) is intellectual inconsistency based on partisan lines (which is a big problem on this page). I find it off-putting when somebody screams about something the other side has done, then is silent when their side does the same, if not worse. I hope that answers your question.

        TPP also stands for Trans Pacific Partnership free trade agreement sometimes described as Clinton’s ‘NAFTA on steroids’. President Obama is trying to fast track the TPP to avoid scrutiny and please his corporate puppet masters.

      • felipe63

        I wouldn’t disagree with that strayaway

      • James Hickman

        The TPP has already been Fast Tracked if I’m not mistaken. A President having Fast Track authority is pretty routine and none controversial that is until Obama became President.

        To Republicans everything from Executive Orders thru the President’s summer vacation to a night out in DC with his spouse is controversial.

        Why? Because Republicans have never accepted that the President has a right to govern and manage the Executive Department. He is an illigimate President who should be a footnote in history.

        It’s pure envy, jealousy and hatred to excuse their own lack of competence. Since Obama took office Republicans have become the fact free party.

      • strayaway

        Yes, Obama pushed the fast tracking of the TPP. He did receive a lot of support from Republicans. In fact, a higher percentage of republicans supported the fast tracking than Democrats. How does that make Obama any less of a traitor to working Americans with regard to supporting the TPP?

      • regressive teaparty trash

        this white trash tea party is simply a koch brothers funded re-invigoration of the dead john birch white trash pseudo-elitist scum which was around in the 1950s and 1960’s———— started by ( among others ) KOCHs father.

        Teatard time is over. It’s TIME to put America back to work.

        The ENTIRE TeaFarty experiment has FAILED. Ready for the PROOF?

        DESPITE ALL THE NEGATIVITY, the Hate Speech, the relentless editorial abuses of the The Right Wing Drunk&Drug Addict Press (Limbaugh/Beck/Boortz), the Treasonous Stagnation by John Boehner in the House, the Malicious and Seditious McConnellism (Think McCarthyism) in the Senate …

        Despite everything these creatures could manage to imagine…

        OBAMA SINGLE HANDEDLY (with the help of many American Democratic Patriots because we all know HE didn’t rebuild the devastation of the Bush Economy and the Destruction of Reaganomics ALONE!!!!)…

        RESTORED AMERICA and her Economy within 6 years.

        IMAGINE, a NON-racist, NON-radical functional Republican Coongress ACTUALLY trying to be loyal, patriotic American Citizens by standing with the American People and helping them recover from the Hiroshima they unleashed on the American Workers and the American homeowners.

        Imagine an economy resolved within President Obama’s FIRST TERM. With an HONORABLE GOP, it owuld have happened.

        But NOT with the RACIST GOP whose dying breath will be, “He’s really half white you know….”

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        “IMAGINE, a NON-racist, NON-radical functional Republican Coongress”; Now that’s funny. It’s as if ol’ Steffy refuses to recognize that the RNC and DNC are one in the same. Same Coin, different sides. Oh how foolish.

        Do centipedes have a spine? Because they slither like that, 100 feet all moving in various and sundry, more or less the same meandering and meaningless direction.

        We need a 4 way Teddy Roosevelt REFORMATION Party.

        The goals are simple. MAXIMUM separation of Church, State, Money and GOvernance.

        1) Complete TAX CODE REWRITE. business PAYS EVERYTHING, because they pass it on to the consumer @ 100%, but THEY PAY IT first, recoup it through service and quality.

        2) Criminalization of POLITICAL misdemeanor and LEGALIZATION of victimless crimes. END the pot persecutions, Begin the jailing of ANY moral, ethical, or legal fault with a maximum penalty and as part of the oath,,, ” I swear I will not challenge evidence of my wrongdoing and hereby accept a guilty plea and the maximum sentence under the law FOR EACH COUNT on the indictment.”

        3) Modernization of the Constitution to include 21st Century English.

        4) END Sorporate Personhood, the corporate veil protecting management, make business 100% liable for it’s damages and 100% accountable for it’s claims.

        1 person = 1 vote. NO vote = NO voice in Government!

        No, most just don’t want to seem like Conservatives… It’s a fine line for some..

        The biggest failure of the TeaBaggers is evident in Kansas, where Brownback’s “conservative paradise” has pretty much wrecked the state.

        Yes, I agree. Socialism will save us all.

      • Bryan Scott Langley

        It’s not socialism, we are not becoming fully socialist. We are a democratic republic with aspects of socialism and capitalism. Our government is set up like this because any one of those in their pure form are ultimately destructive. But mixed together they balance each other and hold everything in check better.

        The Senate and Harry Reid have locked up some 190 bills passed by House. Harry won’t even let them be voted on. He has frozen or Republicans on amendment procedure. Some 30 plus of those bills were authored by Democrats. The Republicans in Senate are the minority and the can’t do much except filibuster because the Dems leadership won’t include them. The Republican led House had been a bill machine many bipartisan but the Dem led Senate is a stone wall.

      FYI. Gas prices down due private industry and the Shale boom. We are at a 28 year high in domestic production. Obama didn’t build that. I give him credit for his recent support of fracking and shale. But, it is more like, “hey, that is working, I’ll support that.” His basic energy policies have been failures.

      • Jeff

        You do realize that Bush economy was in good shape until the collapse of the housing market, which was largely due to a Clinton policy of forcing lenders into lending money to people who couldn’t afford the hone. Eventually, those loans defaulted and with all the buying up of loans, the paper ended up being worth very little. The snowball effect reached out to all areas of economy. Perhaps Bush should have done more to stop, but he didn’t have a completely Republican Congress and certainly didn’t have complete legislative control like Obama did in 2009. Economies go up and down routinely. Presidents can only create an environment in which private industry can become confident in the future and flourish. If jobs are created and revenues increase under Obama’s policies and philosophies, it will be despite them. Obama did not build that.

      • FuzzyBunnyFeet

        Amazing. Conservatives screamed when liberals were pinning the economic problems of the first 2 or 3 years of the Obama administration on the fact that he inherited a GWB economy in free-fall. Yet, here you are blaming GWB’s economic problems on Clinton who had left office over 7 years earlier.

      • Jeff

        That is a completely overstated response about the economy. True, if you source of information is limited to “progressive” sites you might believe that but the debt has nearly doubled, the deficit is finally vs k where it was in 2009 and unemployment is exploding at 12% when you add back in all the workers who stopped looking for jobs. Even if the economy was doing better, what has Obama done. The liberal led Senate hasn’t passed a budget ever or a bill in like forever. Any gains we have had in the economy, of here are very many, are the result of private industry, not government. Obama didn’t build that.

      • Stephen Barlow

        The First debt of this Nation was almost 400% of GDP. And within 3 Presidential terms, Jefferson BOUGHT the Louisiana Purchase!!!!

        How much was the WWII debt as a % of GDP? It as paid off because of intelligent taxation. In fact, if Obama returned us to the REAGAN tax rates in 2009 for the next 4 years, we would have HALVED the debt.

    The arguments put forth in this cute little list are overly simplistic and carefully written as Straw Man arguments to be easily won by the writer. Case in point; the unemployment rate only appears to have dropped to 6.3%. It is not because people are going back to work, it is because hundreds of thousands have stopped trying to find jobs and dropped out of work force. The real unemployment is more like 12.5%. With regards to the deficit, yes it is down, however, it is easy to reduce something you create. Deficit when Obama took office was 600 billion. By 2010 it was 1.4 trillion and now it is back to just over 500 billion. Not as big a reduction as the add would lead us to believe. Aldo, font forget about national debt. 10 trillion in 2008; 17 trillion today. There is so much more to the numbers than what a biased political writer is willing to share. As for the other points, some are obviously ridiculous Straw Men. This writer is only trying to appeal to low information voters.

    • Cemetery Girl

      The unemployment rate is being helped by the baby boomers getting older. They’re hitting retirement age. I know several that when faced with lay offs from down sizing they just opted to retire. They retired a little sooner than they had planned, but only by a few years. This is a fact that helps the unemployment rate, but isn’t really skewing it. They’re starting to retire, they are starting to leave the labor force.

      • Jeff

        True some are early retirement, however the governments own numbers show that 2.2 million people are left off unemployment because they didn’t look for work during the four weeks preceding the unemployment survey. These are not retirees but frustrated workers unable to find jobs. Another 700,000 have stopped ever trying and another 7.5 million workers are under employed part-time workers due to economic reasons. These people are involuntary part-time workers who had their hours cut or who couldn’t find full time work because the jobs ARE NOT there. The numbers aren’t really very good. That’s almost 10 million Americans who need full time work. Again, not retirees.

      • Cemetery Girl

        Very true. The system of counting unemployment is flawed. I particularly don’t like that any employment is counted, even if it is part time work that won’t possibly support the person or their family. Someone working part time for low pay might be employeed, but it how many people live in that state is also a reflection of how we are doing.

      Well, if you consider all the jacking off the REDS have done in the last 5 years and add HANDJOBS to the 11million REAL JOBS Obama has created, that must be over 300 million by now. But those 289 million hand jobs have no benefits, produce minimally, satisfy no one in the long run and can’t really be counted on the Federal Register because even a Part time job has to be 4 hours a day and only a truly PROFESSIONAL wanker like you can “sling the grease” more than 4 hours a day.

    Of course Obama is going to take away all the guns. Haven’t you heard? Obama planned the Ebola epidemic, deliberately is allowing people to come from Africa (because even though it a problem in certain countries, everyone in Africa has it) so that way they can spread it all over our country (because it is so easily spread), then once it becomes a severe enough epidemic here Obama will declare martial law, force everyone into FEMA camps, cancel the 2016 election and declare himself dictator for life, forcibly take all guns away from the population, force everyone into same sex marriages, forcibly remove all children from their families so they can be immersed in programs that will teach them to be socialist Muslims, and I think everyone will be forced to watch reruns of really bad 1980’s sitcoms.
