There was a popular saying among intelligence officers during the Iran-contra affair: How do you know an Iranian is lying? Because his lips are moving.
It was applied to Manucher Ghorbanifar, the mercurial intermediary; and to his boss, the so-called “moderate” Parliament speaker, Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani, who told Ghorbanifar he wanted to make a deal with America all the while he helped organize hostage-takings and terrorist attacks against Americans.
Hillary Clinton’s debate performance reminded me of that saying, because every time she opened her mouth to lay out her opposition research on Donald Trump, she lied or misrepresented the truth to such an extent it became unrecognizable.
American voters aren’t quite as stupid as Clinton (or the “insiders” at Politico) think, and as a slew of after-event polls showed, they weren’t falling for her lies about Trump, her phony statistics, or her breath-taking claim that life in America’s inner-cities has improved over the past twenty years. Or that her plan to raise taxes on the middle class and businesses will help the middle class and create jobs.
