Proposed loan premised on a pack of lies?

What lies beneath?


Wikipedia definitions: 

Flip-flop

A "flip-flop" is a sudden real or apparent change of policy or opinion by a public official, sometimes while trying to claim that both positions are consistent with each other. Often it will occur during the period prior to or following an election…

Big Lie
A lie which attempts to trick the victim into believing something major which will likely be contradicted by some information the victim already possesses, or by their common sense. When the lie is of sufficient magnitude it may succeed, due to the victim's reluctance to believe that an untruth on such a grand scale would indeed be concocted.

Lying through your teeth

When one lies face-to-face with the intended recipient. This also may be an expression describing the act of lying with a smile or other patronizing tone or body language.

Barefaced lie

A barefaced (or bald-faced) lie is one that is obviously a lie to those hearing it. A variation that has been in use almost as long is bold-faced lie, referring to a lie told with a straight and confident face (hence "bold-faced"), usually with the corresponding tone of voice and emphatic body language of one confidently speaking the truth. 
 men·dac·i·ty 
n. pl. men·dac·i·ties
1. The condition of being mendacious; untruthfulness.
2. A lie; a falsehood.
 Synonyms: falsehood - lying - falsity - lie - untruth

Glorify a lie, legalize a lie, arm and equip a lie, consecrate a lie with solemn forms and awful penalties, and after all it is nothing but a lie. It rots a land and corrupts a people like any other lie, and by and by the white light of God's truth shines clear through it, and shows it to be a lie.
E. H. CHAPIN, Living Words

Excerpts from Gov. Carmencita O. Reyes’ Inaugural Speech, July 2010:

The computer ‘lie’.

“Minamahal kong mga anak, mga kababayan, ikinalulungkot ko na ngayon ay nahaharap tayo sa isa sa pinakamahirap na panahon sa kasaysayan ng ating lalawigan. Ang ating naging Gobernador ay nilimas lamang kasama ng kanyang mga kaalyado sa Sangguniang Panlalawigan na pinangungunahan ng ating Pangalawang  Punong Lalawigan , ay isinangla ang ating lalawigan sa halaga na utang na babayaran natin ng 15 taon...

“Nung Martes na nakalipas, nilimas pa ang kaban ng ating lalawigan. Ginawa ang P 15- million para diumano ay ibayad sa mga computer na nagkakahalaga ng P 270,000 bawat isa… sa nakalipas na tatlong taon puro katiwalian ang ginawa nila. Ginahasa ang lalawigan ng Marinduque. Ngunit sa panahong ito na ngayon,  ako’y nagpupugay sa mga kasama nating kawani ng pamahalaang panlalawigan na sila ay hindi magpapagamit sa katiwalian na ginawa ng nakalipas na Gobernador…”

Now we know that the Ombudsman, has finally dismissed that controversial ‘computer case’ (see earlier post), that involved a deliberate lie repeated over and over in speeches, in public hearings and local media then by the accusers, (some of whom are the original authors of the said project, don’t forget). Now we have a clear idea how we, the people, are probably being tricked and fooled.

“A lie told often enough becomes the truth” –Lenin; “If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth” – Joseph Goebbel, one of Hitler’s closest associates, the Reiche Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933-1945.

Assertion of a lie or proof by assertion, sometimes referred to as “proof by repeated assertion” is a logical fallacy according to Wikipedia, in which such an assertion is repeatedly stated, regardless of contradiction. Read. This is sometimes used by politicians as a form of rhetoric and in its extreme form, can also be a form of brainwashing, Wiki stated.
