In Lies We Trust

In Lies We Trust: How Politicians and the Media Are Deceiving the American Public

by Ed Brodow

Millions of Americans at both ends of the political spectrum are angry and fed up with being lied to by politicians and the media. The emergence of “outsider” presidential candidates Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders is proof that people are sick and tired of Washington’s culture of deception.

Thumbing his nose at political correctness, negotiation expert and political commentator Ed Brodow exposes the outrageous lies that have been disseminated about the most important issues of our time. He tells the uncensored truth about the threat of Islamic extremism, global warming, the welfare entitlement system, Obamacare, racial tension, and other important things that our elected representatives don’t want you to know. If you vote in national elections, the candor of In Lies We Trust will help you make decisions based on facts instead of misinformation.

Canny politicians and others are using outright lies, doubletalk, and political correctness to capitalize on our inability to distinguish fact from fiction. Their objective is control. “It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion,” said Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda. George Orwell, famous for his novel, 1984, wrote that, "unscrupulous politicians, advertisers, religionists, and other doublespeakers of whatever stripe continue to abuse language for manipulative purposes."

Most lies fall into one of these categories:
1. Outright lie: “I am not a crook.” Richard Nixon (Truth: He was a crook.)
2. Embellishment and exaggeration: “I remember landing under sniper fire.” Hillary Clinton (Truth: There may have been sniper fire in the surrounding hills, but not at the airport.)
3. Disguised by partial truth and ambiguous language: “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Bill Clinton (Truth: He claimed that oral sex is not really sex.)
4. Omission: “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Barack Obama (Truth: You can keep it only if the plan hasn’t changed since the law was passed.)
