Coddingtons Corner: From Nuisance to Threat - The High Cost of Truth by Paul Craig Roberts

I am convinced that the US, and probably the entire Western world, that is, the American Empire, has entered an era in which respect for truth does not exist in public and private institutions. We have been watching this develop for some time. Think, for example, back to August 3, 2002, a recent time in terms of our present predicament, but a time prior to political consciousness of anyone younger today than 33 years old. In the summer of 2002, the world was being prepared by propaganda for a US invasion of Iraq. On August 3 of that year, the prestigious British publication, The Economist, summed up the consensus of ruling opinion in two sentences: “The honest choices now are to give up and give in, or to remove Mr. Hussein before he gets his [nuclear] bomb. Painful as it is, our vote is for war.”

As Lewis Lapham, myself and others asked at the time, what bomb?

How much do you think those elected to the State House respect their constituents? Not much according to all the legislative action to overturn the criminal justice reform ballot votes of the people from this past November. Apparently a great many legislators elected to represent believe their job is to go against the direct voice of the people. Their actions indicate a blatant disrespect for the voters. The excuses and reasoning given for these betrayals basically equate to we the voters being ignorant peasants too stupid to know what we were doing. Welcome to representative government that not only doesn’t represent but goes against the clear will of the people on enhancing justice. Be contacting your State Senators to tell them to respect your November votes and oppose this HB1482 and those like it.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who have been made in God’s likeness. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. James 3:9-12

Isn’t it interesting how good and evil can come forth from the same mouth? One minute we are praising God and the next we are cursing or tearing down our fellow man. Out of the same mouth that praises God comes insults, cursing, slander, gossip, etc., etc. The Bible tells us that this should not be. It also tells us that the tongue is very difficult to tame and control. I believe, though, that with God’s help, it can be tamed and controlled.

It is a few months after the election; do you know where your freshman legislator is?

Sending your naïve conservative hero off to the legislature is similar to sending your precious, innocent college freshman off to a liberal university.

You are turning him loose to the wolves.

You have done all you can to raise him up and prepare him for the real world, but you will never know how he is going to respond to all the pressure and temptations that come with his new life away from home and the people who helped him get there.

How will you know where he is, and the decisions he’s making, when you aren’t there to hold his hand?

Lately she has discovered a new twist to the fraud where the voting machines can be manipulated remotely by one person and how Hillary Clinton is primed to use this vulnerability to sway votes in her favor.  This is the latest from her interview with Alex Jones:
