I will talk about Lie here. One of the most startling examples of it is the myth propagated by the MSM that American people are all very independent-minded and hate being lectured. Nothing can be further from the truth. The US people are maybe the most gullible, the most lectured and the most preferring to be lectured in the world. That is because those lectures are diluted in flattery. Our people are lectured 24 hours a day, 7 days a week but every lecture starts with the shot of flattery poison to "relax' the muscles of common sense so that we can FEEL GOOD. Make us feel good- and we will beg to be lectured by Oprah, Beck or Jay Leno. Make us feel GOOD and we are there for Dr. Dobson. Make us feel GOOD and even Bush could lecture us forever. Just tell us that we are smart, savvy, powerful, independent- and we will surrender our souls so quickly that there will be not enough little demons to carry those to Hell. So from now on I don't care. I am going to lecture here and I am not going to flatter even a bit. Be prepared, my pretties to see the smirk of a Lie because it is a smirk of the beast and the number is Infinity. Eat your checkers. It can be your only chance.

Lie stinks. That's how you recognize it by its stench. Like when Glenn Beck appears- the stench comes before him. TV or no TV- the stench fills the room and it stays there even if you turn the TV off. Same with the newspapers. I remember how I read Tom Friedman's article (no matter which one) in Starbucks and I puked out all my good coffee. The page reeked. Tom is an exceptional liar- he lies with gusto. We can compare his lies to the US strawberries- they look like ripe and fresh but they have no taste. Whenever Tom writes anything- you can see his goal- to just use it. He is an ultimate user and he uses the whole world for his meager needs- like to eat good food, to drink good drinks, to be well-known. War, death, climate tragedies, hunger- all of that is consumed by Tom, he processes it and produces a lie. I wrote extensively about him and his lies, like when he made all kinds of unfortunate explanations on why Obama was liked by the people of Egypt, etc. But I didn't mention the smell. That particular article of his smelled like a dead skunk. Only worse. In all fairness, the articles by Charles Krauthammer smell even worse, so Tom has a future, sure. He can break the record eventually.

Smell of lie, so musty you could vomit. That's a line from Boris Slutsky. But in many cases there should be something visual. How does a lie look like so that you could recognize it in advance? It smirks.

Ever seen the documentaries about the Nazi Germany? One of the features of Nazism was a smirk. No, of course, they were deadly serious about the pillars of ideology, satire was prohibited and even simple laugh was a no-no. But smirking was Ok. The bonzes, the elite would talk to the people in "their language', smirking sideways about "Northern cunningness', for instance. That is when Germany would violate another treaty or do something outrageous again, it would immediately announce to the world that "This is for the last time; we want everlasting peace' while inside the country people would be told that "the national government has to follow all those tricks using the Northern cunningness to maintain our interests.' Meaning, we all are a bunch of liars, just wait whom we deceive next. Meaning we HAVE A RIGHT to deceive anyone we want because we are a MASTER RACE and we do not follow the rules of common behavior. WE DO THAT BECAUSE WE CAN. That's what Hitler said then. That's what Tom Friedman says now. And they both smirk the same.

Smirk comes from contempt. Liars know that they can lie without impunity. They know or at least they assume in many cases correctly that the people they lie to are eager to take that lie and eat it. They presume that they know the public taste.

In the Y2001 and further on George Bush lied his ears off. He started lying with his morning prayer and ended with his prayer before going to sleep so that he could lie again the next morning. He lied about him being a President. He lied about his "mission'. He lied about Al-Qaeda. He lied about Iraq. He lied about his duties. He lied about him being anything but a miserable former drunk. And the more he lied the higher was his popularity index. I implore my readers to line up his public appearances in the Y2001. You will see the transition on his face from the stress of fear to the smirk of contempt. Somewhere on the way he realized that we all were the herd of stupid sheep happy to listen to the wolf. And all bets were off; he introduced a tsunami of lies we live with until today, in the Y2010. He developed and nurtured an ENVIRONMENT OF LIE.
