When faced with the realization that one's lies are starting to unravel, the the liar will give himself away.
"Obama also urged the students to “reject these voices” that warn of the evils of government,saying:
Still, you’ll hear voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s the root of all our problems, even as they do their best to gum up the works; or that tyranny always lurks just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, creative, unique experiment in self-rule is just a sham with which we can’t be trusted......
A family member likes to tell the story about an evening many years back in which her usually rambunctious young son's silence had become quite conspicuous. Deciding to check on his actions, she called out " So-and -so, what are you doing?".
Her son's immediate reply from another room- "I'm not pouring salt on the windowsill!".
In his speech at Ohio State, Obama went out of his way to tell us that he is not pouring salt on the windowsill. Such behavior is consistent with an individual who is beginning to realize that his "moderate" label which was so carefully protected by the Media has peeled off.
With the timing of a well-executed military operation, Bill Maher took the opportunity to throw the right cross following Obama's left jab with his own claim - That the era of ever having to do battle against a tyrannical government is over, and that even if such an event occurred, nothing would help you stop it:
“Can we get to, first of all, how ridiculous it is for people to think that the Second Amendment protects them from tyranny. Didn’t Waco solve that? We just had the anniversary a couple of weeks ago. Remember Waco? You know what they had in Waco? They had like 1.9 million rounds of ammunition; they had .50 caliber machine guns; they had grenades…What did the government have? Everything else. The winner and still champion – the United States government. Thinking the Second Amendment protects you from tyranny is like thinking the First Amendment protects you from Thor. It’s quaint. It’s ridiculous. It’s nonsensical. And they never get called [on] it!
After Pete Hegseth, a veteran, asked whether Maher could imagine a scenario even in the abstract where liberty might need to be preserved with a weapon, O’Donnell said to audience applause: [ Not shocking concerning the source] “Zero. We’re past it. We’re past it!…This country [is] long past the point where you would ever have to rise in arms against this government.”
The American colonies never had more than roughly 25% of the population fully committed to the cause of Independence., yet the most powerful nation of its time - one that had an incredible force projection capability, could not do much more than hold major cities and occasionally chase the Continental Army around the place.
