“So we have now the Four Corners of Deceit, and the two universes in which we live. The Universe of Lies, the Universe of Reality, and The Four Corners of Deceit: Government, academia, science, and media. Those institutions are now corrupt and exist by virtue of deceit. That's how they promulgate themselves; it is how they prosper.” -- Rush Limbaugh (November 2009)
When Rush Limbaugh uttered those words, spilling the beans on the modus operandi of the entire Democratic and progressive movement, he put conservatives on the offensive. The progressive movement has made it a business of deceiving Americans for profit and at our expense. No American taxpayer can hide from the decades of deception and lies that have eroded our moral integrity as a nation, and cost American taxpayers millions, if not trillions of dollars, in unnecessary programs and initiatives.
Rush Limbaugh uttered this statement on the heels of a Fox News Chanel being the only media outlet willing to report on the false evidence used to support the climate change debate. As we all know the supporters used false evidence and data to support the need to impose a costly Cap and Trade system that has yet to see the light of day in the United States Senate. When the bill passed, eight Republicans, including Delaware’s own former U.S. Representative Michael Castle voted in favor of a Cap and Trade system.
That same deception via false scientific evidence, and support by the many in the academic community continue to plaque Delaware consumers of energy where Delaware is still a member of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. The refusal of Delaware legislators to remove Delaware from this costly ponzi scheme are costing Delaware taxpayers millions each year in additional unnecessary costs, and Delaware jobs because of the higher cost to conduct business in the state of Delaware. Here you have three systems deceiving the public – academia and science on their false evidence, and government leverage the false evidence on the will of the public.
We cannot talk about deceit of the public, without bring up the corrupt business of American media. It is no surprise that most conservative Americans are frustrated with the constant deceit of the American media. Most print and television media outlets refuse to inform the public – their consumers – based on facts. The refusal to report the facts has discredited their ability to be objective. Just look at how the local and national portray conservative candidates. Honestly, what objectivity and factual evidence has the local and national media used to portray Sarah Palin or Christine O’Donnell in the negative light that they do?
Whether one is a consumer of a newspaper, magazine or a listener of a television or radio show, they must be cognizant of what story is being told. Not all media is the same.
The same falls true if one is a consumer (student) of a school, or a publication of that school. Be mindful of the fact that all public schools and most big universities and colleges are run by progressives who are tasked to advance an agenda. The progressive movement has not stopped, and will not stop until every student is indoctrinated not by the truth (e.g. history) but in an ideology that conflicts with what the Founding Fathers envisioned for this great nation. The progressive agenda is anti-American and its pervasiveness in the area of academia should be treated as a threat to the integrity of this nation.
Governments, large and small aside from media and academia are one of the biggest and most blatant users of deception to advance their legislative agenda. One only needs to go back to March 2010, when the government used numerous tactics via the media and academia to advance the destructive and regressive health care reform bill. No matter what government official from the Obama Administration was speaking, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the best thing since sliced bread. Immediately after its passage, the real truth came out from the Government Accountability Office that the bill fails to rein in health care costs for American patients and will cost American taxpayers more than originally reported. Clearly this is deception by the American media and government officials at its best.
More recently, the Obama Administration continues to deceive American taxpayers and Republican legislators on the legitimacy of the third war in Libya. Progressive view this third war as legitimate and valid under the War Powers Act. Still to this day, Obama has failed to gain approval of Congress over this illegal use of military use of force and remains defiant in complying with the law. Obama supporters including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) state that the use of force is legitimate so long as American troops are not on the ground. Once again our government officials think the American public is stupid, but continues to deceive the American public with false information on the War Powers Act. It is also important to note, that the leftist media continues to give Obama a free pass.
Until Americans stop being consumers of the business that propagate this deception it will continue. Progressive are raking in billions of consumer dollars on lies. Their profit margins depend on gullible consumers to buy their magazines and newspapers, listen to progressive radio such as National Public Radio, and watch their television news shows. Higher advertising revenue of radio and television programs and increased revenues attributed to higher readership fund their game of deception.
Academia and scientific studies are funded via government grants all funded by taxpayer dollars at the federal and state level. These three systems are interconnected and leverage deception collectively (as noted above) to drive more dollars from the wallets of American taxpayers preventing them spending their hard money on the American economy.
If Deception, Inc were a business it would be listed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and ranked number one by Fortune as the most profitable American business. It’s time to wake up our liberal friends and family to this game of deception. America’s existence is at stake. The more we are deceived, the more America crumbles. Rush Limbaugh wants us to fight back and we must.
