Using truthful statements to lie

A recent paper explored the effects of using truthful statements to deceive others.

The authors of the paper call this behavior paltering and define it as “the active use of truthful statements to convey a misleading impression.”

The paper, Artful Paltering: The Risks and Rewards of Using Truthful Statements to Mislead Others, says:

…we identify paltering as a distinct form of deception. Paltering differs from lying by omission (the passive omission of relevant information) and lying by commission (the active use of false statements). Our findings reveal that paltering is common in negotiations and that many negotiators prefer to palter than to lie by commission.

The paper tests the effects of paltering during business negotiations, but paltering can happen in many other contexts. Examples of paltering by public figures can be found in the news every day.

The concept of paltering is also interesting psychologically. I am going to speculate that individuals often palter to themselves concerning their own internalized autobiographies and reasons for doing many actions.

If we use our inner voices to palter to ourselves—that is use the best “truthful” description of our actions that also just happens to place those actions in their best light—then we are not living with full integrity even in the privacy of our own thoughts.

At the same time, we have to be careful about how we assess our own paltering. We might be right to use the best version of events because that really is the correct version.

The problem is there is no good standard for an individual alone to decide what is objectively right or wrong.

For example, if someone smokes pot in a state where it is illegal are they paltering by telling themselves the law is stupid so why follow  it?

FIML partners will want to avoid paltering at all times but especially in the midst of a FIML query. Properly done, FIML can help with internalized paltering because this sort of subject matter lends itself well to FIML discussions.

As with all moral questions, where we draw the line is not always easy. The more tools we have the better. Awareness of paltering and its effects on others is good tool to have.

Dems prepare yet another TRAP

Donald J. Trump

9:09pm May 18, 2021

Republicans in the House and Senate should not approve the Democrat trap of the January 6 Commission. It is just more partisan unfairness and unless the murders, riots, and fire bombings in Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago, and New York are also going to be studied, this discussion should be ended immediately. Republicans must get much tougher and much smarter, and stop being used by the Radical Left. Hopefully, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy are listening!


In-depth explanation from Sundance:

 The executive branch, DOJ and FBI, have accused Capitol Hill protestors of mounting an “insurrection” for which they have no evidence.

The judicial branch, activist left-wing judges, are holding those people accused of “insurrection” and many other cited misdemeanor offenses without bail in order to maintain the fraudulent premise.

The legislative branch is planning to conduct a January 6th investigative commission later this summer & fall timed with the DOJ trials of the accused, in part of their mid-term election effort.

And the cameras were rolling

This is a small cutout from a longer post linked below with excellent background information.

Given what is now public information about the Promethean Panopticon and the Roman Catholic Church’s lavender mafia, it’s not exactly hard to figure out how the abomination that is Vatican II came into being contra centuries of theology and tradition.

…I very much doubt it was “information” that was being shared at the apartment parties. There was almost certainly rather less in the way of “discussion” and rather more in the way of “underage gay discotheque” taking place there.

And the cameras were rolling

they want to admit only their own

University of California will no longer consider SAT and ACT scores. Notice how all objective measures are demonized as privilege, or racist. The reality is they are making all success subjective because they now occupy the positions that grant admission, and they want to admit only their own.

The takeover of academia has been going on for decades and was largely complete well before Trump won the presidency. Academia is the gateway to elite power in business, government, academia itself, publishing, and more. This is obvious but always good to remember USA has lost all cultural high ground (academia, Big Tech, govt, IC, MSM) to globopinko or whatever you want to call it. Proving election fraud and overturning the results will be a step in the right direction but we have much further to go than that. In many ways, the situation looks hopeless but our side still has truth and a popular majority going for it; and those are factors that often win in the end.

A devastating letter written by Arizona Senate President Karen Fann on voting irregularities, and probably fraud, in Maricopa County during the 2020 Presidential Election. Even the database was illegally deleted after the subpoena to produce the information. Senate President Fann has invited Maricopa County officials to a public hearing on May 18 to allow them the opportunity to try to explain what happened to the missing databases, ballots, and other significant issues. The Fake News and Lamestream Media is doing everything they can not to cover this major story. They just refuse to talk or report about it. They don’t want the United States or World to see what is going on with our corrupt, third world election. Read the full letter here:

Is Big Tech a Big Money loser?

Donald Trump responds to Facebook’s decision to keep him banned, calling it a, “total embarrassment.” Notice he has not yet created clones of twitter, facebook, and other Big Tech giants. The reason may be, even he could not afford to operate such a losing business model, without a huge inflow of pilfered cash directed from all of Cabal’s corruption. It would bankrupt him in short order. Think of Hotwheels, who founded 8Chan, only to end up losing it because he could not afford to run it. All that traffic, and he could not advertise, he could not monetize, he could not get donations – all he ended up doing was paying massive amounts of cash for seemingly never-ending bandwidth.

The idea is that the Cabal uses social media to spy on everyone while simultaneously propagandizing everything, controlling all information. Consider that covid has been treated by MSM, Big Tech, and globalists the same as Donald Trump was and is treated—with lies, censorship, and a stupid narrative—and you can see a pattern of information distortion, fabrication, and control. Who or what is the Cabal? Look at who is doing it and who is pulling the strings. Cabal will look different from different angles and locations like the proverbial elephant, but you can see it is there, an elephant that is always in the room. DC is a captured government as are all its agencies. Whether Big Tech is a money loser or not doesn’t change this picture because money at the top flows like a river and top people can direct it wherever they want. It’s all free money for them.

Covid at-home treatments, vaccines, and OFF-THE-RAILS govt policy explained by Dr Peter McCullough

This is an extremely good discussion of covid and what people should know about it. McCullough is very clear in his presentation and as a top expert in this field exceptionally well-informed. Don’t miss this one.

Rumble — In this interview with The New American magazine Senior Editor Alex Newman, the internationally renowned Dr. Peter McCullough–the doctor with the most citations in the National Library of Medicine on these topics–warned that the COVID shot was already causing thousands of deaths and tens of thousands of hospitalizations that have been recorded. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Tucker Carlson explains Frank Luntz

Frank Luntz is an insufferable political putz and UniParty gatekeeper {See HERE – and HERE – and HERE}, but Fox News always protected their swamp spokesperson… until now.  In Friday Night’s opening monologue Tucker Carlson took-on the DeceptiCon contract agent known as Frank Luntz.

Something is happening in the background for Fox News to give permission (perhaps instructions) to Tucker Carlson to be able to do this.

Everything Carlson notes is accurate; the expose’ is absolutely correct; but I cannot stop wondering why now? …And why Tucker Carlson?    Carlson was always a member of the approved DeceptiCon establishment.  This reversal doesn’t seem real.  Watch this segment.  Check the links above to absorb the full background.

Tucker Carlson Takes On Frank Luntz

People like Luntz are what makes people like me believe there is an overarching cabal that controls everything in USA and most of world. Watch this video on Freemasonry in this context and it’s hard not to connect the dots.
