Looking Back on 2022 – The Year of Lying

Editor writes…

Is Tucker over-egging the pudding?

Some commentators over at YouTube are saying they’ll never trust politicians or the media again, after the lies of the past couple of years.

Your thoughts…

    Tucker got me thinking about the lies we’ve been told over here – apart from the whole Covid scam, we have been lied to about loads of stuff, e.g. the energy “crisis” – where the energy companies are raking in a fortune in profits while OAPs are struggling to keep their houses warm . That’s one thing. There’s plenty more lies that we’ve been told, such as the blame being put onto the Ukraine war for the big rise in prices of food and everything else, and he energy crisis as well.

    I also don’t believe the excuses made to turf Liz Truss out of Downing Street, i.e. that her economic plans were doomed to failure. I’m no economist but making it possible to grow the economy and lower taxes sounded good to me. By lying about her policy, the men in dark suits were able to get Sunak and Hunt into position, ready to make our lives harder than ever.

    We’re not going to get back to the old normal.. I know we’ve said that all along, but it’s very obvious now. Life is going to be hard financially, as well as morally and regarding religion, as we see the UK going further and further downhill in every way. I can’t see there being a sudden upsurge in priestly and religious vocations, not for a very long time, so things are only going to get worse in every way, IMHO.

    So, I agree with Tucker – 2022 was the year of lying, but I don’t expect 2023 to be any better, tbh.

      I agree with all of that but I also think Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP are lying about the Gender Recognition Bill – it’s not at all necessary and it’s going to encourage young people to experiment and ruin their lives. Bottom line – all politicians lie and I don’t trust any of them.

        Lily,

        It’s sad to be so cynical about “all politicians” but I’m afraid I agree with you. Can’t think of even one whom I would categorise as “honest”.

        editor,

        I don’t think anyone trusts politicians these days. Everyone knows they lie through their teeth.

        You’re not kidding. I read this yesterday – another lie exposed https://www.binary.org.au/new_studies_prove_puberty_blockers_are_not_reversible

        WF.

        That article says that doctors in the UK have stopped prescribing those dreadful blockers, but does that mean doctors in Scotland as well? I’m genuinely confused about the different areas of responsibility between the two countries in all sorts of ways and this is one. If Sturgeon can push through her own Gender Bill, what’s to stop doctors up; here using the blockers?

      MM,

      Agree about Liz Truss – and agree about Ukraine. I don’t know what the heck is going on there but it’s all highly suspicious, if you ask me which nobody ever does… 😀

      Margaret Mary,

      There’s not likely to be any upsurge in priestly and religious vocations – I don’t think there is any interest in recruiting any more. I can’t remember the last time I heard vocations mentioned in a homily.

    “Don’t take a leak on my boots and tell me it’s raining!” – LOL. Editor’s expression “over-egging the pudding” is a new one on me, but then again, I’m not known for my expertise in the kitchen, beyond boiling water and opening the fridge door…

    I think Tucker is spot on, but with two caveats: one, he contradicts himself right off by saying that politics isn’t very important, and then spends his whole segment on politics.

    Two, only a year of lying? How about a century of lying, or even longer? And that’s only politics. The traitorous humans in the hierarchy of the Church have been lying to us ever since Vatican II, telling us they destroyed the Mass to make it more intelligible and active for us, telling us that ecumenism will fill the pews, telling us that guitar-strumming priests in sandals distributing grape juice and scones is what we really wanted, and more lately, telling us that the planet is doomed unless we get vaxxed, drive electric cars (or no cars at all) and eat bugs and drink recycled sewage.

    If 2022 is the Year of the Lies (new Chinese calendar), then I’d say the father of lies had a pretty good year. And I daresay he’s not even close to being finished yet.

      RCA Victor,

      “over egging the pudding” just means exaggerating – just as too many eggs in a pudding will spoil it, make it too heavy/rich, whatever, so too much exaggeration blah blah. You’ll get my drift. And think about it – all of the above spoken like a top cook when the truth is, I can’t boil… well… an egg!

      Agree about Tucker’s contradictions, but remember, as he admitted during his interview with Dr Malhotra (or maybe it was just obvious), he’s still learning himself about the reality of what has been going on / IS going on in the world.

      Your assessment of the lies we were told in the Church by the liturgical (and other) experts, is spot on and reminds me of the joke: What’s the difference between a liturgist and a terrorist? Answer: You can negotiate with a terrorist! 😀

        Editor,

        In view of the imminent holiday, I hope you will not over-egg the eggnog….or was that over-rum it?

        Agreed on Tucker’s progress.I’d say he has a pretty steep learning curve, too. The things he comes out with now would have been unimaginable mere months ago. I’m surprised he’s still on FOX.

        RCA Victor,

        I think he’s probably much too popular to get rid of without an outcry from viewers. He’d definitely not get to say the things he says on air in the UK. He’d be cancelled in a heartbeat!

        Fidelis,

        My guess is that Tucker would work for GB News and be freer to speak there. The other channels are useless, nothing more than government mouthpieces, propaganda machines.

    Well, we seem to have run out of lies for 2022, so here’s Tucker again, one of the few voices (actually the ONLY voice) speaking out against the fake hero Zelensky…

      Wow, Tucker has definitely put on the armor of truth. I’m glad he compared our so-called Congress’ clapping with the famous scene of the Soviet Parliament members clapping for Stalin and everyone being afraid of being the first one to stop clapping.

      As for our so-called government, President Eisenhower’s farewell speech in 1960, in which he warned his fellow Americans about the “military-industrial complex” and its danger to the Republic, is looking more prescient by the day.

      I suspect that’s what all these stooges are really approving of: giving the armament industry more money to build and deploy weapons. The “Republican” leader of the “Senate” stated outright the other day that funneling billions of dollars to Zelensky is the top priority of Republicans!

      Seriously? Seriously.

        RCA Victor,

        RE your first paragraph – this is still happening to this day in North Korea but the fear they feel which motivates them to clap, is really no different from the fear that gripped the people here for the past two years over Covid. It’s just a difference in degrees of fear IMO.

        RCA Victor,

        I think Lily has said it all there – the coercion to obey is the hallmark of an oppressed people.

        As your Mark Twain put it – and as we’ve witnessed over the past two years – “It’s much easier to fool people than to convince them that they’ve been fooled”.

        Hence the continued mask wearing and queues for the jab. Incredible.

        Seriously!
