Is the correct term 'bold face lie' or 'bald faced lie' or another variation?
Answer: The correct term is bald-faced, and refers to a face without whiskers. Beards were commonly worn by businessmen in the 18th and 19th century as an attempt to mask facial expressions when making business deals. Thus a bald-faced liar was a very good liar indeed, and was able to lie without the guilt showing on his face.

The provocateur, Mike Vanderbough (3 percenter) and organizer of the Armed March 4-19-10 in VA. (just across the river from DC). This same guy recently called for people throwing bricks through the Dem. Headquarters windows and helped the MSM in trying to label Patriot movement as violent is now calling for people to show up armed on 4-19-2010. He is from Alabama and admitted to me he has had a long term relationship with Morris Dees, founder of the SPLC. The same org. that is demonizing the Patriot's, Tea Party, etc. Also, according to one source http://www.larouchepub.com/other/2010/3714assass_plot_vs_obama.html has connections with British Intelligence.
Make this information go viral. Please send this to everyone you know.
Meet the author of that email "alert" -- Walter Reddy, bald-faced liar and LaRouche stooge.
Something else ole Walter posted on the 'Net:
You are absolutely correct ! The organizer of the Armed March is Mike Vanderbough, the same provocateur that recently called for throwing bricks through the windows at Dem. Headquarters to discredit the Tea Party movement. He has connections with British Intelligence and Morris Dees (SPLC). This Armed March is a set up. You want documents,call me 203-557-3418.
So, I called the number and guess who answered?
None other than the founder of the Committees of Safety hisself, one Walter Reddy.
Reddy describes himself thusly:
Walter Reddy has been a Constitutional Activist since 1970. Starting in 1970, he succeeded in collecting petitions which called for a Constitutional amendment, giving 18 year olds the right to vote, the 26th Amendment.
In 1993, he collaborated with a group of 10 Constitutional activists that lobbied Hawaii legislators and got them to introduce and pass a 10th Amendment resolution. Within 2 years, more than 22 States followed with similar legislation. . .
(Considerable self promotion redacted.)
On Independence day, July 4, 2008, Walter founded the Committees of Safety organization, which hosted last year's historic BostonTea Party event and will again host this year's event on 12-12-09 at Faneuil Hall, Boston, MA.
On April 19, 2009 Committees of Safety hosted their second event after a 2 month battle to get the permit for the official staging area at Lexington Green, Lexington, MA. The purpose of our Rally at Lexington was to honor and commemorate the courage of the 50 well organized Lexington Militiamen that "Stood their Ground" and refused to throw down their Arms when illegally ordered by the 800 British military troops. A British officer fired and "The Shot heard around the World" began America's War of Independence.
On this year's anniversary at Lexington Green, Committees of Safety invited the newly formed Oathkeepers to join us and 400 American Patriots ended the event by taking an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic and ending with pledging our lives, our fortune, and our sacred honor, so help us God.
I met Walter Reddy there, in Lexington, in the run-up to 19 April. He is a man very impressed with himself.
When confronted Reddy admitted the post and the email, and filibustered when I asked for his "documents." I admit, I lost my temper.
A few salient points.
First, Reddy says that I am "the organizer of the Armed March." I am not. I am simply a speaker. Not that facts mean anything to Reddy.
Second, readers will remember my original post on the LaRouchies. They will certainly remember my post from today, about how the LaRouchies apparently played a role in stampeding the OK board into pulling out from the 19 April event.
How anyone with half a brain can believe anything these professional liars and provocateurs say after doing merely a cursory Internet search is beyond me. To embrace such obvious lies and become a willing LaRouche stooge says more about Walter Reddy than I need editorialize about.
Third, and to me most important is this bald-faced lie:
He is from Alabama and admitted to me he has had a long term relationship with Morris Dees, founder of the SPLC.
The only "long-term relationship" I have with Morris Dees is unremitting conflict. My first "claim to fame" on the Internet was called "Deeswatch," an electronic newsletter dedicated to exposing the lies of Morris Dees and his SPLC. But this is not what Reddy is saying. He is in fact making up a lie to buttress his LaRouchie excrement, just in case some weak-minded fool doesn't think to Google Loon-don LaRouche.
It will be interesting to note how Reddy's fellow board members at Committees of Safety react to this massive brain fart and moral lapse. I suspect they won't care for it at all.
It is one thing to have principled argument over whether or not the 19 April rallies are a good or bad thing. It is quite another to embrace the ravings of loons and tell bald-faced lies about one speaker at that event in order to sabotage it.
So please, will some Threeper call ole Water and get him to send you his "documents"? No doubt we will be able to file them with the great fabrications of history once they are analyzed by folks with less credulous and fevered brains as the much underappreciated Walter Reddy.
Good grief, the only thing worse than being known as a LaRouchie is being known -- through your own considerable exertions, mind you -- as a willing LaRouchie stooge.
