America Is Being Run by Liars
“We’ll be back on Monday.” That’s how Tucker Carlson ended his show on Friday, April 21. But on Monday, April 24, Fox News announced that Carlson had left the network after they “agreed to part ways.”
But it’s clear what really happened: Fox News fired Tucker Carlson for telling the truth.
It all started during the 2020 presidential elections when Fox declared Arizona for Joe Biden while there were still hours of counting left. Carlson didn’t say much about this publicly, but due to the recent Dominion Voting Systems v. Fox News Network lawsuit, some of the internal conversations have been revealed.
Right after Fox management called the state of Arizona for Biden, Carlson texted his producer, “Do the executives know how much credibility and trust we’ve lost with our audience? We’re playing with fire, for real.”
Time has revealed that he was hamstrung by the management at Fox News. He wasn’t free to tell the truth. But over the last few months, he began asking more and more questions.
He started asking about the stolen election. He started asking who Ray Epps is, and what really happened on Jan. 6, 2021. He started asking why the release of the covid-19 vaccine coincided with an uptick in “sudden deaths.” Most importantly, Tucker Carlson began asking who is really in charge in the White House.
Because it has become increasingly evident that the current administration thrives in a very particular kind of dishonesty.
Consider when the New York Post broke the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop and 51 former national security and intelligence officials rushed to discredit the story as Russian disinformation. When President Donald Trump brought it up in the second presidential debate in 2020, Joe Biden angrily cited these former officials, saying that what Trump accused him of “is a bunch of garbage—nobody believes it except him and his good friend Rudy Giuliani.”
Last week we learned that Biden’s presidential campaign had asked these intelligence officials to claim the story was “Russian disinformation.”
These aren’t the incoherent bumblings of a career politician going senile. These are some of the lies that form the basis of an administration dedicated to the destruction of America. Consider some more examples of the radical left’s lies.
According to a new bombshell letter from an Internal Revenue Service whistleblower, Attorney General Merrick Garland lied to Congress and was involved in covering up the Hunter Biden criminal investigation.
Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Chris Wray lied when he said his department did not collude with Twitter to manipulate discourse and free speech on the online platform when the Twitter Files revealed that it did.
Dr. Anthony Fauci lied when he said covid-19 came from bats and not the government-funded Wuhan lab in China. He said the vaccine was completely safe and would prevent infection. Then he said one booster, then a second and finally a third would do the trick.
Joe Biden lied when he blamed inflation on the “unfair and brutal war in Ukraine” and not at all on the disastrous economic policies. He lied when he called January 6 protests the greatest threat to America since the Civil War. Was that truly a greater threat than the fentanyl crisis, the southern border crisis, the mutilation of children by transgender fanatics? What about Pearl Harbor and 9/11?
Joe Biden lied when he said the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal was Donald Trump’s fault.
These are some of the specific lies they have told, but the radical left continues to lie every day.
It is lying that the Second Amendment is the reason for gun violence. It is lying that anti-black racism is thriving in America. It is lying that gender transitioning, mutilation and castration are the solution for young Americans who are sexually confused and dissatisfied.
In fact, in many cases, the lies are creating the crises. The lie that black people are oppressed is deepening the racial divide, radicalizing hundreds of thousands. The lie that humans are more than just male and female is creating a generation of sexually confused young people. The lie that the Second Amendment is the reason for gun violence is why the extreme black-on-black violence in cities like Chicago continues to be ignored.
Tucker Carlson had the most popular cable news show in America, drawing over 3 million viewers. That’s how much Americans wanted to hear the truth. But those running the country don’t want you to know the truth. Truth is under attack.
It’s easy to think it’s Fox News versus cnn, or liberals versus conservatives. It isn’t. It’s truth versus lies. Fox isn’t the home of truth. The firing of Tucker Carlson is a warning to everyone else what will happen if you stand up for the truth.
Today, these lies are everywhere. They inform the movies and television shows you watch. They are in music and advertising. They are firmly embedded in celebrity and popular culture. Lies and liars populate every part of the media, the news, the military and the government.
For the last 12 years, these lies have been growing and growing. They started off with a man who called racism America’s original sin, a man who used Mexican drug wars to attack the Second Amendment, a man who made it his mission to “fundamentally transform” America. Most politicians are dishonest. But these endemic lies come down to one man: Barack Obama.
America is being run by liars, and Obama is at the head of them.
Lies are how the Democrats worked to take down Gen. Michael Flynn. “Lying is the modus operandi of these Obama-era officials,” writes Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry in America Under Attack. “They lie as a way of life!”
It doesn’t matter if it’s Joe Biden, Merrick Garland or Andrew McCabe—those under Barack Obama all lie. “That is how all these people attached to Obama behave,” Mr. Flurry continues. “They are still calling American hero Michael Flynn a clandestine agent of Russia. These officials have been repeatedly exposed for such deception. They believe it is right to lie when it advances their agenda and is for an ‘important purpose.’ They have no fixed principles. And very few will hold them to account! This is what the power of Satan … will do. It is frightening.”
It is out of fashion to talk about Satan the devil today. But as we have always written at the Trumpet, the devil is real and his impact on the world today is real, particularly in empowering the war against truth, just as was foretold in the Bible.
In His day, Jesus Christ was confronted by radicals who had nothing more than unbridled power and influence. And He said of them, “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44; New International Version).
Lying is so natural to Satan it is like his mother tongue. He is the one who is in charge. No wonder America is being run by liars. The “god of this world” is the liar inspiring it all (2 Corinthians 4:4). Mr. Flurry continues:
As Jesus Christ said of the devil, there is no truth in him—none! And the radical left lie like the devil. That is the spirit behind these people who will say and do anything to accomplish their goals. The way they worked to destroy the life of Michael Flynn, an upstanding American patriot, is chilling proof. They will stop at nothing to take over the government and align America with the government of Iran and other tyrannical states. Every time they are challenged on anything illegal they have done, they lie—over and over and over again.
Yet still, when people ask them a question, somehow, no matter how outrageous the answer, they believe them! The spirit of deception is frighteningly deep. These people are influenced by the devil!
The radical left is waging a war on truth. The spirit of deception permeates the government, the media, movies and television. Satan is the source of these lies, and the Bible says he has deceived the whole world (Revelation 12:9).
The only tonic to these lies is to go to the source of the truth. Ultimately, Tucker Carlson, Fox News or any such person or outlet isn’t the real source. The only way to receive the truth is to go to God and to look to His Word, the Holy Bible. This attack on truth was prophesied. It is clearly laid out in the Bible.
The Bible prophesied of a powerful leader, empowered by Satan, who would lie as a way of life and launch an assault on truth, law and order in America. It prophesied of his efforts to “blot out” America (2 Kings 14:28). And it prophesied that God would use another man to save America from destruction by these radical forces.
