You have probably heard it said many times before, “How do you know they’re lying? Their lips are moving.

If you watched the latest congressional fantasy show, “Impeaching a President, The Sequel,” you saw that doggerel in action. From gavel to gavel, each time a piece of impeachment evidence was debunked the accusers moved on as if having presented false evidence really didn’t matter. It is yet to be discovered why Mrs. Pelosi, et al, ignored the intelligence they received several days before the Capitol riot and prohibited the presence of added police or the national guard. Their lips were moving throughout the entire proceeding but very little of the truth sprang forth.

When the charade ended Mitch McConnell, the on again, off again chief swamp dweller said in a threatening manner, “it isn’t over for Trump yet.” Probably the truest statement to be heard.

Over a week ago it was reported that some 80 national leaders were still waiting for an expected call from our new President. Today we learn that Vice President Harris has started making those calls. Could it be that President Biden is too tired out from the marathon executive orders signing or was ex President Barrack Obama revealing a truth during an interview after leaving office.

When asked if he wished that he could be elected for a third term he said, “no, what I would like is to be able to have some guy, someone that I could control, elected and have a speaker in his ear so that I could tell him what to say and do.” That would answer a lot of questions, from the make up of the cabinet to the rush to overturn everything done by Trump. Fearing that a scheme like that would eventually be discovered, time would be of the essence.

Impeachments and possible election fraud aside, the biggest story of the century is the pandemic. You would think that here would be a subject where only the truth would be told to the public. Enter Dr. Fauci, a career swamp dweller, 40 years on the job. Somewhere along the way he discovered that being a virologist for the U.S. government would be a heck of a lot more lucrative and less labor intensive than laboring away in some obscure university laboratory. From all published sources, that decision has worked out very well for him but that doesn’t alter the fact that he hasn’t been able to pick a line of reasoning and explanation of what exactly is going on with this pandemic and then stick to it. He has been on all sides of the issue, both pro and con, since it began. But, then, he works for the government so there is no requirement to find the truth and hang with it.

Riots are peaceful protests. Looting is a form of free speech. Police departments are universally racist and need to be defunded. When an administration changes to the other party all criminal investigations begun by the previous administration are spurious and should be consigned to an Orwellian memory hole. Mainstream media is the watchdog of truth and social media the fairest arbiter of free speech. Gender has no connection to biology therefore biological men, identifying as female, have every right to compete in women’s sports. Marijuana shops and liquor stores are essential businesses, churches are not. Railroad tanker cars, barreling across the landscape, are a safer way to move oil than is a buried pipeline and no, the fact that the trains are owned by political donors never entered into the equation.

In “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” we learned that words mean whatever we say they mean, no more, no less. Nowhere has this lesson be more universally applied than in the Washington Swamp.

We could go on, and on, and on until the eyes glazed but a more interesting exercise might be to explore those times when we are certain that we were being told the truth…

No, I can’t think of any either. And that’s a wrap.
