The Illusion of Transparency: How ALL Politicians Use a Buzzword to Deceive Constituents

Transparency has become a buzzword frequently used by politicians to promote trust and accountability in government. However, the concept of transparency can also be manipulated to deceive constituents and conceal ulterior motives. This article explores how politicians use the term “transparency” as a tool of deception, creating an illusion of openness and honesty while obfuscating their actions and intentions.

The Origins of Transparency in Politics: The concept of transparency in politics can be traced back to the democratic principles of ancient Greece, where the open exchange of ideas and the free flow of information were considered essential for an informed citizenry. In modern times, the term has evolved to represent the idea that government should be open, accessible, and accountable to the public.

The Appeal of Transparency: Transparency is an attractive concept for politicians as it implies honesty, openness, and a commitment to ethical governance. By promising transparency, politicians can build trust with their constituents and create the perception that they are working in the public’s best interest. This makes transparency a powerful rhetorical device for winning elections and garnering public support.

The Misuse of Transparency: Despite its positive connotations, the term “transparency” can be easily manipulated by politicians to deceive their constituents. Here are some ways politicians misuse transparency to create a false sense of openness:

  1. Selective Transparency: Politicians may selectively disclose information that portrays them in a positive light, while withholding or downplaying unfavorable information. This creates an illusion of transparency that allows politicians to control their narrative and public image.
  2. Overwhelming Information: Politicians may release a flood of information, making it difficult for the public to discern relevant details or understand the context. This tactic, known as “data dumping,” can be used to bury controversial issues under a mountain of seemingly transparent information.
  3. Ambiguity and Vagueness: Politicians may use vague language and ambiguous statements to create an impression of transparency without providing any real substance. This allows them to appear open and honest while avoiding accountability for their actions.
  4. False Transparency: Politicians may announce new transparency initiatives or policies, only to fail to implement them effectively or enforce them consistently. This creates a false sense of progress, allowing politicians to claim credit for transparency efforts without making meaningful changes.
  5. Misdirection: Politicians may use transparency as a distraction, focusing public attention on a specific issue to divert attention from other, more controversial topics. This tactic can be particularly effective when paired with selective transparency or data dumping.

The Importance of Genuine Transparency: While the misuse of transparency can erode trust in government and undermine democracy, genuine transparency remains a vital component of a healthy political system. Real transparency involves providing accurate, timely, and easily accessible information to the public, allowing citizens to hold their elected officials accountable for their actions.

Conclusion: Transparency is a crucial aspect of good governance, but it can also be manipulated by politicians to deceive their constituents. Voters must be vigilant and critical when evaluating claims of transparency, ensuring that they are not misled by false promises or empty rhetoric. Genuine transparency can empower citizens and promote accountability, but only if we recognize and challenge its misuse in the political sphere.

Crime has vaulted near the top of voters’ concerns, just after the economy and inflation. According to Gallup, 80 percent of Americans worry “a great deal” or a “fair amount” about crime, the highest level in two decades.


Such fears pose yet another midterm election hurdle for Democrats, on top of public angst over soaring prices and President Biden’s dismal public approval ratings.


As a former prosecutor, substitute judge, legal advocate for children, state Senator, and as a legislator, Jennifer Wexton should be well aware that our society is a dangerous place. Wexton should understand that our children, the elderly, and everyone else in between needs to be protected from violent criminals and repeat offenders. She ignores this and advocates on their behalf with light sentences, “no cash bail”, Criminal Justice Reform, and Restorative Justice.


Do you recall the rape of a (15) year old girl in a Loudoun County High School bathroom in May 2021 by a transgendered student? If this wasn’t bad enough, “Criminal Justice Reform” allowed for the rapists sentenced to be reduced, removing him from the sexual assault registry and providing supervised probation. To make matters worse, the Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Scott Ziegler IGNORED the federally mandated processes and procedures when incidents of this nature occur, and now Wexton is abolishing Title IX protections under HR5-Equality Act.


Jennifer Wexton got the ball rolling on the rapists lenient sentence by introducing Bill NO. 1082 in 2017, which passed (and she’s proud of it, see video during meeting with NAACP).

In 2019, Wexton proudly endorsed Buta Biberaj for Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney. Prior to being elected, Biberaj was the legal redress for the Loudoun NAACP; this is not an insignificant detail. Biberaj also belongs to the Virginia Progressive Prosecutors For Justice. The VPPFJ’s primary goal is “Criminal Justice Reform” or “Restorative Justice”.


Wexton, Biberaj are closely aligned Progressive ideologues and share questionable associations with a variety of organizations and people.

Who could forget the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 over George Floyd. Wexton is so radical that she sponsored the “George Floyd Justice Policing Act” (defund the police) and the “Mental Health Justice Act” that allowed for increased funding for social workers that are meant to take the place of police officers around the country.


These are only a few examples of what Wexton and the Progressive Democrats “Criminal Justice Reform” and “Restorative Justice” look like for Public Safety:
