Â It’s hardly original to say that President Barack Hussein Obama lies, and I’m fully aware that more politic terms such as distorts, fabricates, misstates, orÂ misrepresentsÂ would moreÂ civilly characterize Obama’s issues with truth but why quibble since I’m not referring to his most well known lies but to his effortsÂ Â to perfect “The Big Lie.”Â
Only his dumbest supporters still believe his pre-presidential fabricationsÂ concerning his father who heÂ claimedÂ came toÂ America on JFK’s African airliftÂ when Obama seniorÂ actually arrived at least a year before the program started or that doozie about his parents deciding to have a child “because of what happened in Selma, Alabama because some folks are willing to march across a bridge,” whereas he wasÂ born four years before the Selma march, or his whopper about his sainted daddy serving in WWII, or any other Obamian baloney.
What’s very possible, based on his actions over the past four and a half years–and on hisÂ obviousÂ inability to distinguish lies from truth–isÂ that our leader is a firm believer in the foundational Nazi concept of “The Big Lie.”
“The Big Lie,” aÂ termÂ concocted by Adolf HitlerÂ in Mein Kampf,Â defined a lie as so “colossal” that no one would ever Â believeÂ anyoneÂ “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”Â It was laterÂ clarified by his propaganda chief, Joseph Goebbels.
Goebbels explained the Big Lie in some detail:Â ”If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.â€
Â Our 44th presidentÂ is still feverishly working to perfect that monumental prevarication, and it should be noted that fooling most of the people most of the time is not a simple task even though Obama twice convinced a majority of American voters that he was the superior candidate and to believe his fabrications, misstatements, and misrepresentations–his lies.Â

However, whether Obama can succeed in winning over his most avid supporters–the rest of us have long been lost to him–to accept the vital importance “for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent” and accept the doctrine thatÂ ”the truth is the greatest enemy of the Stateâ€ is still questionable.Â
Should he accomplish that goal,Â the remainder of his second term won’t be that of a lame duck president but rather one of a chief executive energized by his success in escaping censure for his boatload of proven lies to fulfill his whispered promise to RussiaÂ of “more flexibility”Â and God only knows what other secret commitments he has made–all in his ultimate interest of perfecting The Big Lie.Â
When he achieves that perfection and succeeds in repressing all dissent,Â we’re all screwed.
