“Hypocrisy Watch” is an idea, something people are playing around with today and have in the past. There are only a handful of people that make it their business to talk about the rampant, ingrained hypocrisy. Even less with the stature of a Glenn Greenwald. Fewer yet are willing to go on record to call out these hypocrites.
Hypocrisy is defined by Random House Dictionary as:
- a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.
- a pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.
"Hypocrisy is the art of affecting qualities for the purpose of pretending to an undeserved virtue. Because individuals and institutions and societies most often live down to the suspicions about them, hypocrisy and its accompanying equivocations underpin the conduct of life. Imagine how frightful truth unvarnished would be." [Benjamin F. Martin, "France in 1938," 2005] -[Emphasis added]If you want to be a part of this action, make note in your blog, or make a comment identifying either the hypocrite or the person that identifies the hypocrite. This Report is always on the lookout for someone exposing hypocrisy.
Lying hypocrites seem to be the norm today. They are corrupt to the gut and are totally illegitimate bastards. It's time to recognize them for what they are and treat them accordingly. They want you to treat them like they are honest, decent, and truthful people. Stop cooperating with them.

The Ultimate HypocrisyThe root cause of the problem is well illustrated in Glenn Greenwald's “Two presidents and their justifications” - When politics trumps law. When gutless Americans worry more about perception than the Rule of Law - "Look forward, not backward." The Call to Justice falls to the World and to the Universe.
When the American people refuse to enforce established Constitutional Law they act, by a de facto unanimous vote, to abolish the Constitution. When that happens America becomes an illegitimate, ungovernable mob.
