As they are sometimes called, half truths. We can't even get a half truth out of Obama.

    Cognitive dissonance is alive and well in politics. Sound bites and headlines are easy to remember, but they don't add up correctly in the end. 'Shock and awe' is not just for bombing nations into submission, it is used to keep the populace in constant alarm and thus begging for 'someone to do something.' This is what keeps the bombs and the drones going...

    Often, it is much more difficult to disprove a half-truth / non-truth than it is to prove a truth.

    A GREAT example is: the CCP's criminal puppet that would be king/god is a lying dog faced pony soldier (a soldier in the destruction of individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty, the nobility of man, life itself, peace and prosperity). The most dangerous un/anti truths spoken by the criminal puppet begin with a distorted thread of accuracy then woven through a tapestry of demonic tyranny. The criminal puppet vain claims a devout association to a religion Who's Head is the Creator of life then, increases finances to and otherwise expands the macabre death cults human sacrifice to gods of pleasure and lifestyle; and, enables infernal cartel fiends in the profiteering of human trafficking / child rape and other abuse, etc., etc., etc.
