Flood of Hypocrisy Nearing Flood Stage

There is an urgent need to find higher ground as the flow of hypocrisy and deception nears flood stage in our culture.

Wisconsin, Planned Parenthood and Washington State Rep. Eileen Cody, all give us a glimpse of the rising tide of hypocrisy and deceit.

In Wisconsin, public schools are failing while the teachers are demanding more. Two-thirds of 8th graders, for example, are unable to read proficiently, despite the fact that Wisconsin spends more money per pupil than any other state in the Mid-West.

Take-away thoughts:

Don't mess with the NAE and its local affiliates. They are busing in protesters and agitators from all over the country, joining in with the locals to appear and sound more daunting and intimidating toward the Governor who is attempting to keep his campaign promise to bail out his state and balance the state budget.

Give us more money, public education demands. The Governor asks that teachers pay a fraction of their own pension and health-care costs, they say they have a right not to pay.

"He's trying to break the unions," they say. One wonders if the unions are not about to break the state and all the folks who send in their money to Madison each year---and pay a good part of their own health-care costs---and contribute to their own retirement pension---if they even have one.

"We are failing at what we are paid to do, so give us more money and power."

Hypocrisy nearing flood stage.

Planned Parenthood, caught time and time again in unacceptable and likely illegal practices--most recently, the pimp and the illegal alien underage girls he sells, are now feeling the heat---at least a little heat.

The US House of Representatives has voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood. However PP has an ace or two in their pocket---at least for now.

They don't think the Senate will pass the bill to de-fund them. Why? Because we were unable to elect a majority of pro-life senators last election. And Planned Parenthood and their affiliates such as NARAL, etc., own too big a share of the pro-abortion lawmaker's careers.

Too many states did what Washington State did last November in opting for ultra liberal, pro-abortion Senator Patty Murray.

2012.

Planned Parenthood has a very carefully crafted false image of who and what they really are.

That image is well represented in a national article carried recently in
The Seattle Times titled "Foes Seek To De-Fund, Discredit Planned Parenthood."

While the article gives the appearance of balance, it isn't. You can read it.

The purpose of the article is to put forth the idea that while conservatives may think PP is a criminal organization, their efforts to de-fund them is really an attack on minorities and the poor. They say this attempt, "Attacks the ability of American women to get reproductive health services they deserve."

Not to worry that some of those desiring "health care services" could be illegal underage aliens who are being prostituted by a pimp who needs abortions and "health care" without anyone knowing about it.

Planned Parenthood's response: "No problem."

The Media's response: "Planned Parenthood's national office notified the FBI before any videos...were released."

Deception.

After Planned Parenthood discovered what had happened, just days before the release of the videos which we published here, they contacted the FBI attempting to save face and possibly much more.

This particular article mentions Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, because they can no longer avoid it, but wraps her in mystery and intrigue as to what she really believed and was trying to accomplish, stating that she in fact was pro-life or not pro-abortion.

Nothing could be further from the truth. We have
written on this with documentation.

The article in the Times is an example of the media's selective reporting under the guise of balanced news and failing to report that which may restrict their march toward unrestrained secularism.

And then there's Washington State.

Representative Matt Shea proposed a bill, HB 1442, this session that would simply require that parents be notified if their underage daughter was seeking an abortion. Parental Notification.

Representative Eileen Cody, chair of the Healthcare and Wellness Committee, would have none of it. She told the ranking Republican on the committee that she believes girls over the age of 14 who become pregnant are considered "emancipated---independent."

She killed the bill. And in doing so said "no" to parents and their rightful authority. Yet she, the Governor and others continue their drumbeat of how they want to "help families."

Deception.

Representative Shea said he thought it was shameful that the public was not even given an opportunity to testify on the issue.

Shameful, indeed.

Governor Gregoire is fond of saying something may happen, "if the creek don't rise." I know that old phrase, we used it in the Yakima Valley as well.

However, this rising creek may have more implication than merely changing a plan. It may well change direction in the culture. As the overflow of deception and hypocrisy reaches flood stage in our culture, even liberal, so-called progressive states may awaken to the need for a flotation device, better known as a fiscal and social conservative.

God help us. May we be ready when our time comes. And I believe it will come.

  1. Isn't amazing how often the one sounding the call on deceit is a prime purveyor of it?

    In Wisconsin Gov. Walker IS trying to break the unions, outlawing collective bargaining for all public employee unions, save those, which endorsed his election. Contra Gary's claim Walker is NOT just keeping a campaign promise, he never mentioned collective bargaining in the campaign.

    Hypocrisy. Randall endorsed the so-called Tea Party and their extended, corporate-backed temper tantrum over Health Care Reform, something President Obama whole-heartedly campaigned on and which the American public resoundingly endorsed in the election.

    As for PPFA, we are all familiar with the zombie lies told about them by now. Anyone interested in the truth knows it or where to find it (hint: Not from liars like Lila Rose).

  2. Don't look now but Wisconsin Gov. Walker has been caught out in a sting. Thinking he was talking to conservative puppet master and his chief backer Koch, when he was actually speaking with a reporter, Walker admitted his goal is to break the unions!

    Yes, indeed, there is a massive flow of hypocrisy and deception. It's just not coming from the direction Randall thinks it is. (or perhaps more accurately wants his followers to think it is, since one must assume Randall is aware of his own part in this deception).

  3. Thanks, Gary, for speaking the truth, even though not everyone believes the truth when it is written. We need smaller government, but government that protects innocent human life, punishes evil doers, and protects the life and property of those doing right. What is 'right' must be determined by the unchanging principles of God's word.

  4. The Governor asks that teachers pay a fraction of their own pension and health-care costs, they say they have a right not to pay

    In reality, the public employees have agreed to pay the increased percentage the Governor requested. They've agreed to do their part to save money for the state. It's public knowledge. The governor won't admit this and claims he hasn't received this offer. That's because he won't meet with them to receive the offer.

    The only sticking point left is collective bargaining, and the real plan is to destroy the unions.

    I understand that most of your followers are probably anti-union. I ask everyone to consider one point:

    For most of you, your pay and benefits are determined in some manner by the local union scale even if you're not in a union.

    Big companies base their pay and benefits largely on what it will take to keep the unions out. This is especially true when high unemployement makes the employer king and they could competitively cut wages and benefits.

    However, if they pay too little or treat employees badly, they risk unionization. I used to work in management for a large corp and was formally trained in union prevention.

    If there are no unions, it will be a race to the bottom for all of us.

    Public employees are not the just the teachers that Gary wants to make villains. It's firemen, police, nurses, etc.

    As the old saying goes, don't cut your nose off to spite your face.

  5. Yeah, the hypocrisy of so called Christians is surely shameful. But then, I've always thought that He without sin should cast the first stone. I've watched greedy executives skin consumer and employee alike to ship money abroad to hide in secret accounts, live in conspicuous consumption, or use it to buy influence, especially with conservative media, or rule governments. Absolutely no moral considerations. And that's just what Reagan said. His economic policy was strictly economic- no consideration for ethics, morality, conscience, or individuals.
    Being from a right to work state, and generally anti-union, I've watched union bustin by the federal government, which resulted in my and other engineers being RIF'd. Not for economic reasons (union PATECO proved that in negotiations), but to reorganize and get rid of us. (Of course, some of us were rehired, some like me temporarily and on contract, at a much higher salary.) Boeing did the same thing several years ago, and RIFed (some of our engineers came from Boeing) or transferred engineers to Kansas. (One reason I no longer fly- pilots and air traffic controllers being RIFed, under trained, overworked, and/or pay restricted.) Oh yeah- when I was unemployed, I was given the chance, although I did not qualify, to apply for a Hydraulic Engineer position (2 positions), requiring PE registration, and 5 years experience. To top that it paid barely above minimum wage, the equivalent of 4 each 1/4”x4” bolts w/ washers and nuts, per hour. And most engineers take 5 years to get through college, at a cost well over $100,000. Not a very fair capitalistic trade- bolts for dollars. (I'm ambivalent about the NEA, except their absolute civil right to exist and organize. Never liked Teamsters, dock workers, or UAW, as workers seemed overpaid. And wonder why all workers, not only public employees, are not included in legislation. No wonder so many of feel like third class citizens.)

  6. Mark, I see Gary addressing a specific situation which specifically involves the teachers in Wisconsin and their union. There are fireman and others joining in the fray, but Gary is not addressing them. Where are you finding his comments directed at fireman and police?
    Thanks Gary.

  7. Gary, I have heard that Eileen Cody tried to deny her remarks made to Rep. Schmick even though he wrote them down as she gave him the message to give to Rep. Shea.
    Thank you for keeping the light shining in the darkness of hypocrisy.
