Habitual liars are known for twisting the truth about everything, whether large or small. For the progressive left, telling the truth appears to be uncomfortable and difficult, while lying feels right.

For example, the rich elites who founded and still control the Democratic party have demonstrated their superior ability to lie to Americans since the founding. During slavery, and for most of our history since then, they have lied that Blacks are an inferior race.

They also lied that greedy businessmen and a stock market crash caused the Great Depression, and that President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) was a hero who was working to end it. Many economists agree, however, that FDR and his anti-freedom policies made the Great Depression worse, lasting years longer than necessary. 

During that time, they also enacted the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which according to author Robert Caro’s “Means of Ascent, was highly influenced by Congressional members. One of these was Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ), who later became president.

LBJ became a multi-millionaire through his ownership of radio and television stations and seemingly used them for his own enrichment and political power, despite insisting otherwise. It was obvious that LBJ completely controlled his broadcasting companies, but he was given a pass because the businesses were in his wife’s name.

During World War I, Americans were outraged that our enemies had used chemical weapons, including “mustard gas,” against our soldiers. The United States joined the first international agreement — the 1925 Geneva Protocol — banning asphyxiating, poisonous, or other gases and bacteriological agents in warfare, joining the international community in reinforcing that ban in 1972 and 1993.

Since then, it seems there is no legitimate purpose in our government funding “gain of function” research to study how biological weapons can be used. But we have been funding that research for many years, with much of it “outsourced” to labs in foreign countries, including the one in Wuhan, China, to hide what our Democrat-dominated federal bureaucracy is doing despite the law. 

Along with many Americans, I believe Dr. Anthony Fauci lied when he said the research was conducted to study ways to counteract such biological weapons if ever used against us. It also seems obvious that COVID-19, which was apparently developed through that research, was used against our own country to help defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

But that’s just part of the damage such illegitimate research and Democrat lies have helped create. The progressive left, which owns and controls our huge pharmaceutical companies, aka “Big Pharma,” were seemingly shielded from vaccine liability by laws enacted in the 1980s, under the leadership of then-prominent Senate Democrat Edward “Ted” Kennedy. 

Pharmaceutical companies bear no liability for the “vaccines” they produced, which don’t appear to shield anyone from disease and are allegedly much more harmful than the COVID-19 virus. Democrat President Joe Biden “mandated” these dangerous vaccines and appears to be using them to weaken our country’s military and other institutions which are supposed to promote and protect our American culture.

Since the earliest days of the COVID-19 pandemic panic, anyone who expressed the opinion that it originated from a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology was censored, vilified, shouted down, or otherwise silenced. But now, three years later, the U.S. Energy Department, government scientist Dr. Robert Redfield, and FBI Director Christopher Wray have all stated that the likely origin of the pandemic was a leak from the Wuhan lab.

I am waiting for the truth to be exposed about many other lies that I believe they’ve kept hidden. We need to begin the hard work of repairing the damage the progressive left has caused our nation with their falsehoods and deceits.
