The Truth Of The Liars

Let me clarify at once that the title of this post has nothing to do with Amaral’s book, with the exception that it involves the infamous couple and friends, nor is it even a wordplay with its title.

This picture, published in the “Lux” magazine in Portugal, really, really fascinated me.

Not wanting, at this point, to talk about reasons, courage, arrogance and stupidity of doing it, I would like just to point out the fact that these two, in this particular picture are gazing at each other.

Once I saw it, my mind couldn’t help but wonder what on earth were those two minds thinking at that particular point in time.

There they were, both knowing the truth, both knowing that the other knows, and both knowing exactly what role-playing they’re expected of.

Did they mentally insult the other? Probably.

Did they think that one day this photo will be used as the pinnacle of the whole hypocrisy? Probably, too.

Did they think about what the other did that night? Like “I know what you did last summer”? Likely.

Independent of whatever the thought, it must be painful to look directly into the eyes of the truth, irrelevant if they are implanted in the skull of a liar.

They all have a pact. But they all are aware that one day things will go sour. And are now ALL collecting "ammo" for THAT day when they’ll have to fight for their lives. Make the last stand.

How do they do that? Self-defense. Sticking to the truth as much as the path of truth allows. Let me exemplify, the words of Gerry when coming out of the plane: “Me and Kate have done no harm to Madeleine”.

They haven’t, but doesn’t mean somebody hasn’t.

And I’m not talking about the Tapa lot.

Also the media. Quickly Maddie has gone from “abducted” to the vague “missing”. As if they know they ARE writing lies, but leaving space to respond when that accusation ill come.

You see, part of their nightmare is not only looking behind their shoulder every single minute of their lives, but also watching every single word uttered for they know that can and will be used against them one day. And only a guilty person thinks like that.

Like those who interrupt being questioned to say “I’ll only speak any further in the presence of my lawyer”.

Or simply not answering questions. 48 of them, if my memory doesn't fail me once again.

You see, they have been telling us the truth. No, I’m not talking about the abducting fantasy, but about everything else. We’ve just been unable to hear it.

They’ve led us to believe that they were negligent, but when they said that they had been responsible parents, I now believe that they were being truthful.

You don’t? Re-read Ironside’s postings. A liar knows why he is lying, but most of all knows exactly when and why he tells the truth.

Listen carefully. Read likewise.

And you might find that not all out there written and said, apparently benefitting them, is a bed of roses for the Tapas.


  1. LUX! LUX! LUX!

    Acho-a conivente com estes dois. Uma foto de "harmonia"; de gente muito "lux"; bem enquadrados e junto a uma porta de vidros, creme, cremes, status. LUX CONIVENTE!Porque também a lux sabe que uma imagem .... como é aquele ditado? Ah! " Com papas e bolos se comem os tolos". LuxObjectivoCumplice.

    Quanto ao Seu texto,Text.nem me atrevo a dizer mais nada que:BRAVO, mais uma vez!Que poderia eu dizer e escrever melhor? Não,não conseguia.

    Claro, ler os comentários de Iron. e de TODOS é sempre bem útil. Muito útil. Muita coisa importante fica também, nas opiniões dos outros. Há sempre que ler.

    E Iron. é bastante agregador/conciliador.
    E há que estarmos juntos num ou dois objectivos: a verdade do que se passou com a Pequenina e a luta com muito apoio ao Cidadão Gonçalo Amaral.

    Já agora, coloco aqui o link do TTw4 cujo espírito analítico me seduz (ressalvo que TTW4 coloca e pede sugestões para o que diz):

    Ah! Andei a ver uns vídeos, no e há um/uma querido/a , tem um nome qualquer e é fã do e o ícone é uma imagem de M. lançada para trás.Imagem essa que choca muita gente!

    Obrigada, Text e, desculpe escrever em português.



    Video of jerry mccann and his legal fees.


    Other apartments had yellow and green curtains all but this one...Matt Oldfield did not do a 9.30 check.

  4. they are not gazing at each other... they are in mid conversation with the camera freezing the moment mid sentence

    Your post still applies though, Ironside

    I still can't believe they haven't been charged with a single solitary thing....... yet


  6. In most photos I have seen of them together they find it very hard to hide the disgust of each other, all the hand holding in the world can never take that away ,Kate has such a cold,nasty face ,she has no warm kind "Mother" in her ,behind closed doors I would think the atmosphere will be cut with a knife, they dare not separate as they would be scared of the other family (and YES I believe the families know what happened to Maddie)will go to the press or open their mouths in the wrong place ,I am so glad I dont have to live thier sorry lives

  7. Till death us do part , for better or for worse..The Mccanns will have to keep their marriage vows for ever.No divorce, ever.
