A little more than a decade ago, george w bush and his cadre of charlatans and thieves lied this country into a disastrous, ill-conceived war in Iraq. It worked once, so why not again? As the country is scared and confused by the activities of the group known by names including ISIS, ISIL, Da’esh, and others, the right wing war machine is out in force, broadcasting outrageous lies, designed on one hand to denigrate the words and actions of Pres. Obama, and on the other hand, to influence the people that we have no alternative but an all-out war, including the use of ground troops.
The true facts fail to either constitute any type of direct threat to the United States or the the people, or to signify any urgency whatsoever to take any drastic steps to increase domestic security. So, the right wing big mouth liars, who either lust for another war just to have another war, or are so embedded with the business of war, with their buddies at“Tom Cotton: Terrorists collaborating with Mexican drug cartels to infiltrate Arkansas”).
But, as bad as that is, it is nothing compared to the astounding pack of crap being spouted by gop Congressman duncan d. hunter who has been a disgrace to the people of his Congressional district in California, since first elected in 2008. Just the other day, hunter looked squarely into a television camera, and LIED to the American people, stating that at least ten members of ISIS are KNOWN to have come into the US illegally through the border with Mexico, and that they have been arrested by border patrol agents. Here he is saying just that:
Now, if this had actually happened, don’t you think that not only would it be broadcast 24/7 on fox fixed new noise, but also on CBS, NBC, ABC and every other news outlet across the county, and probably the world? And wouldn’t there have been some sort of official announcement from some agency or another, like, oh, maybe Homeland Security, that runs the border patrol (now actually called “U.S. Customs and Border Protection”)?
This is what Homeland Security did say, in response to hunter’s lies:
“The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the Southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence or the facts on the ground,” a DHS spokesman said in a statement today. “DHS continues to have no credible intelligence to suggest terrorist organizations are actively plotting to cross the southwest border.”

But yet, they advanced, and grew, and worked on more and more lies, each one scarier than the last, all designed with the clear intent to scare the shit out of unsuspecting Americans, to validate the need for the next war, and to elect these lying, thieving sociopaths disguised as politicians, such as duncan hunter and tom cotton, and the rest.
