It has been said that America has become an Empire of Lies. Difficult as it may be to accept, this allegation is true. To deny this would be to fool ourselves. The truth is that over the last several decades America’s elites have erected a system in which lies permeate every aspect of our societal life.
Everywhere we turn, we encounter lies. We have now arrived at a point where nearly all our public institutions operate on lies: the government, media, education system, arts, military and even sports. A recent event is emblematic of the Empire of Lies in which we live.
On March 13, USA TODAY published its list of top twelve Women of the Year. One those “women” was one Rachel Levine. The problem is that Levine is not a woman.
Born Richard Levine, Levine is a biological male who has lived most of his life as a man. He married and fathered children by his wife. It was only after he turned fifty that he declared himself to be a “woman.”
Levine’s personal preferences notwithstanding, the incontrovertible reality remains that he is a man. Every cell in his body testifies to this fact by carrying within it the XY chromosomal combination which is characteristics of males.
Rachel Levine, born Richard Levine, is a biological male who was married to a woman and fathered children. Once someone is born a male, he can never become a woman, because this determination has been made on the deepest level of biological reality.
The sex of a person is an irreversible biological fact. This is how a Stanford geneticist expressed this truth:
“No amount of surgery, hormone injections or anything else will change someone’s DNA from a man’s to a woman’s (or vice versa). As you know, for humans, sex is determined by the presence of a Y chromosome – humans with an X and a Y chromosome are male and those with two X chromosomes are female. No current (or probably future) technology can replace a chromosome in all of our trillions of cells.”
One cannot become a woman by declaring himself one or by wearing make-up, skirts, wigs or painted nails. Neither can a man become a woman by hormonal treatments or surgical alterations to his body. However extensive such alterations may be, he will only be a surgically or hormonally altered male with XY chromosomes.
According to Dr. Paul McHugh, a Harvard-educated physician and formerly University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine:
“Transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men. All (including Bruce Jenner) become feminized men or masculinized women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they identify.”
But we do not need experts to confirm this. Nearly every normal person knows this intuitively and can immediately see this when presented with the evidence of their eyes.
There is an elemental chasm between biological males and real women that cannot be bridged. To say that Rachel Levine is a woman is therefore an obvious untruth. It is a lie. But it is not merely an ordinary lie. It is a flagrant lie whose immense falsity is evident to everyone with eyes to see. If you asked a thousand people – in an environment in which they would not feel threatened to express their true opinion – to tell you whether they think Rachel Levine is a genuine woman, nearly all would say “no.” Those who would say yes would be immediately suspected of visual or mental impairment.
To put it briefly, Rachel Levine is a man, and, therefore, he can never be a woman. Yet in America we pretend otherwise. This is gaslighting of the most brazen kind. Worse yet, this gross subversion of truth is not being practiced on some far fringes of American society. It is being practiced at its very heart and center.
USA TODAY is a major newspaper and a broadcasting company – in fact, it is the number one newspaper in America by circulation.
But it is not only USA TODAY that subverts the truth in this unabashed fashion. ALL major corporate media do it. All of them have consistently pretended that Levine is a woman and refer to him as such ever since he burst onto the national scene in 2020. This includes even such outlets as Forbes and The Economist, periodicals which one would have thought had still some contact with reality.
When Levine became the United States Assistant Secretary for Health all media falsely represented him as a “woman.” When Levine was named an admiral in the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, the media across the spectrum celebrated the event as a major milestone for women claiming that Levine was “the first female four-star admiral in public service.”
But it is not only the media who propagate the grossest of lies; it is also our government starting at the very top. When President Biden announced Levine’s nomination for the post of Assistant Secretary for Health, he referred to him as a woman. When Levine was being questioned during his confirmation hearing not a single US senator brought up the obvious issue of him being a man. Not one of them used this opportunity to ask him why he tries to pretend otherwise. They all pretended that the person sitting in front of them was a woman.
It is not only the highest levels of the US government that are actively subverting physical reality before them; it is government on all levels. As you may know, prior to his federal appointments Levine served as Secretary of Health in Pennsylvania. He was appointed to this position by Governor Tom Wolf who, of course, referred to him as a “woman.” Needless to say, Levine was confirmed to this role by the Pennsylvania State Senate who were all willing to go along and pretend that the man before them was a woman.
But it not only the American media and political establishment that lie and deny reality. Academia is equally intellectually and morally corrupt. To wit, the best athlete on the University of Pennsylvania women’s swimming team is a young man called Lia Thomas who until last season competed as a male. Thomas went on to become the NCAA swimming champion in 500-yard freestyle.
As you may know, the University of Pennsylvania also happens to be an Ivy League school. The Ivy Leagues are a group of elite universities that are considered among the best in the United State and, indeed, the world. The eight schools in this grouping include such prominent institutions of higher learning as Harvard, Yale and Princeton. As such they are supposed to represent the best and brightest among us. These schools compete among each other in the Ivy League conference. That they would allow a man to compete with – and soundly beat – genuine girls shows that our intellectual elites have collectively lost both their judgment and their minds.
Unfortunately, the same applies to our military and the medical establishment. The former now pays for sex transition surgeries for our military personnel. There are many serious problems with this, but the main one is that there can be no such a thing as “sex transition,” because such a thing is simply not possible. The very premise of the whole procedure rests on a lie. This lie is being propagated by the medical establishment that carries out these mutilating procedures. Furthermore, in their reality-subverting endeavours, they now refer to real women as “birthing persons.”
We do not need any more examples. It suffices to say that practically every American institution is now actively engaged in reality subversion. If we are as a society willing to lie about obvious unalterable physical realities, we must be lying galore about other things as well. And we most certainly do. The American regime and its media lie nearly about everything, and they do it vehemently and without ceasing. Do you want some recent examples?
What about the vaccines being perfectly safe and 95 percent effective?
What about Hunter Biden’s hard drive being Russian disinformation?
What about BLM being a peaceful movement concerned with racial justice?
What about Kyle Rittenhouse being a white supremacist intent on shooting peaceful BML protesters?
What about the claim that Joe Biden is an honest politician and a good man?
What about the SARS-CoV-2 virus coming from Wuhan wet market?
What about the claim that Anthony Fauci was a selfless public servant whose main concern in life is the well-being of his fellow citizens and public health?
What about the Canadian truckers being racists, fascist, misogynists and terrorists?
What about the claim (made in 2006) that we only had ten years to save the planet from a climate disaster induced by man-made global warming?
And do you still remember Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction?
All these were brazen lies promulgated by our fraudulent establishment.
Almost nothing that is said these days in public discourse is true. Our whole system is saturated in dishonesty, untruth and deception. Our public sphere exists in a tissue of lies.
Biden, Fauci, Walensky, CNN, NPR, the Washington Times, the Department of Justice, the FBI, Pelosi, Gates, Zuckerberg, Schumer and thousands of their friends – every one of them tells lies.
The dollar, along with our whole financial system, rest on a stupendous lie. The lie is this: the United States government will one day pay off its debts. This will never happen. Once the hour of reckoning arrives, this lie will cost us dearly. Lies, lies, lies and more lies everywhere.
And now the liars are using their media to push for and expand the war in Ukraine. If you really want to learn the truth about Ukraine please watch a 2016 lecture on the subject by Professor John Mearsheimer, one of the world’s leading experts on geopolitics and international relations.
A Supreme Court nominee recently claimed she did not know how to describe what a woman is. She said she is not a biologist. So, a Harvard-educated lawyer cannot tell us what a female is, and this nation is supposed to award her a lifetime appointment of great public trust. That woman – Kentaji Brown Jackson – is not exceptional in her extreme prevarication. Today nearly all public figures dissemble and lie as a matter of course.
Our system is so false and rotten that the so-called “fact checkers” are among the greatest liars to be found. Those who attempt to say the truth, on the other hand, are promptly censored and silenced. Paradoxically, the truth tellers are being cancelled by the fake “fact checkers” who are on the payroll of such frauds as Pfizer, Bill Gates, George Soros and their like.
Telling the truth has become a serious offence in America. We have, indeed, become an Empire of Lies. An Empire we certainly are, for the regime not only forces its lies on the American people but exports them to the rest of the planet. Our embassies, for example, now routinely hoist the LGBT flag which stands for the movement that, among other things, maintains that men can become women.
Our globalist leaders invade and destroy countries on the basis of lies, which they tell both domestically and internationally. In the early 2000s, the United States ordered Saddam Hussein to abandon his program of developing weapons of mass destruction. He did what we asked him to do, but we still accused him of having weapons of mass destruction. We then invaded his country under this false pretence and had him executed.
A couple of years later, we asked Moammar Khaddaffi to relinquish his WMDs. The US government promised him a hand of reconciliation and cooperation if he did. He complied and then we helped to have him killed.
Before being expelled from Afghanistan, our globalist-minded elites tried to export parts of their lie-based ideology by opening a department of gender studies at the University of Kabul. They could really not have chosen a more inappropriate setting for this this kind of gaslighting operation.
Is it any wonder that the American regime is being increasingly disliked around the world?
When polled by Gallup, people around the world consistently named the United States as the greatest threat to peace. The numbers were getting so bad that the American government pressured Gallup to stop asking this question. But the world’s collective judgment is not surprising given our record of sowing havoc, death and destruction: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria. There was a big lie attached to each of these disasters.
For this we can thank our corrupt globalist establishment. This establishment is now presided over by Joe Biden, a corrupt man who has sold out his country through various influence peddling schemes and other ploys involving his son. The plentiful evidence of his misdeeds is on the hard drive of his Hunter Biden. The FBI and the Department of Justice are in possession of this drive, but the regime has refused to launch an investigation into the crimes recorded therein. Not only that, but they have done everything they could to bury them under the lie of “Russian disinformation.”
Everyone who loves truth and America should be deeply upset and grieved by this.
A regime that is so profoundly steeped in dishonesty, deception, criminality and corruption can never prosper. The moral law that undergirds all existence – the Law of God – requires that its dark works be met with just recompense.
It is not good to be the Empire of Lies.
