When Is A Lie A Lie

We all know when we tell somebody something that is not true that is considered a lie. It seems a local candidate for mayor in the city of Radcliff, Kentucky, J.J. Duvall, has some cognitive difficulties determining what is a lie and what is not when he told a group of voters at a mayoral forum conducted by the NAACP that he graduated from the University Of Kentucky with a degree in political science in 2002. When asked about graduating from the University Of Kentucky with a degree from that school, which is not true, Duvall said he misspoke. I do not know how the other writers at Veterans Today or the many readers of this online publication feel about politicians stretching the truth, but I, for one, am getting so tired of politicians lying and then using the word misspoke as an excuse for the lie they got caught up in.

A Vietnam Veteran wannabe, Dick Blumenthal, running for a Senate seat from the state of Connecticut, just got caught lying about serving in the Vietnam War and used the same word, misspoke, as a way to downplay the fragrant lie, he told. Is that the new keyword for politicians to de-emphasize their lies when caught trying to deceive the voters?

In the News-Enterprise newspaper out of Elizabethtown, Kentucky which is right next door to the city of Radcliff, there was a candidate questionnaire and Duvall responded by stating he graduated from North Hardin High School in Radcliff, Kentucky and the University Of Kentucky, which is 80 miles east of Radcliff in the city of Lexington. He was asked about the information submitted on his questionnaire and he informed the paper that the information was incorrect. My question is, was he going to let this incorrect information stand if he was not confronted with the discrepancies? Then J.J. had an excuse why the questionnaire was filled out wrong, he said his staff had filled out the form and he had not proofread it before submitting it to the newspaper. A biography about J.J. Duvall was submitted to the Radcliff Woman’s Club recently and in it, Duvall stated he had a political science degree from the University of Kentucky. When asked about it, J.J. stated he was not aware of the error about him graduating from the University of Kentucky and took full responsibility if he mislead the public to believe he had a political science degree from that university. For a mayoral candidate who will work directly with the massive changes taking place at Fort Knox and must work hand-in-hand with the military leaders of the army’s now Human Resources Command Center if elected, one has to wonder if J.J. needs to be more aware of what staff members are writing about him, should be become a more efficient proofreader and definitely should use his dictionary more to learn the difference between a lie and misspeaking.

What is it about politicians at all levels of government who will lie and then when caught lying, will give some outlandish excuse for such behavior? This is not about what political party J.J. Duvall is affiliated with, nor about his opponent in the race, it is about J.J. Duvall telling the truth about his achievements or lack of, and running on his real record. Have we, as voters, become so numb and hardened to politicians lying like Mark Foley and Rod Blagojevich, having sexual trysts outside their marriage like Bill Clinton and Elliot Spitzer did or using their office for their own financial gain, William Jefferson caught with $90,000 dollars in his freezer or Duke Cunningham taking kickbacks and bribes that we just do not care anymore and accept their behavior? None of us are perfect in this world, and we all have had experiences in life we would gladly change if given the opportunity but most of us would not lie in the first place just to be elected nor would we pad our pockets once given the public trust to serve our fellow citizens. Until we, as voters, demand good ethical behavior and accountability from our politicians whether at the federal, state or local level, we will continue to get those that lie and serve themselves.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
