Why Fact Checking Is A Joke
Townhall, by Derek Hunter

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/10/2019 6:36:21 AM

As soon as President Donald Trump’s speech ended, the liberal talking points were spewing on the cable news networks disguised as “fact checking.” Armed with press releases from the Democratic National Committee, the talking heads universally focused on the small stuff to avoid admitting the inconvenient truths leftists avoid like the plague – illegal immigration hurts Americans. Democrats don’t care. To leftists, individuals are disposable. Why would they be bothered by a Ronil Singh if they don’t care about the 100 million dead their totalitarian philosophy is responsible for? One more body on the pile of bodies isn’t going to bother

I have argued with friends about this. If you are biased in fact checking, then what good is your checking? Snopes is as biased as they come yet some think they are gospel.

Didn´t CBS fact check Trump during his recent address to the nation? When Trump said ´1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted as they journey to the border´ didn´t CBS say ´Trump´s claims 1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted-fact check reveals...A HA! He is WRONG! The actual figure is 60-70%!´

And that was that for their fact checking.

We are living in a never ending sea of relativity especially when it comes to truth. Progressives have so devalued the worth of telling the truth on any issue that it really is no benefit to them. Truth is no longer important or relevant. It is merely a tool to be shaped in the image of their dogma. When we abandon truth, we are without a foundation. Anything goes. Right and wrong are abandoned and ideology is the driving force.

We arrived at this auspicious moment because we allowed truth to be redefined by the left to fit their agenda and they were not challenged when their lies were exposed. Truth must be defended and it takes courage to expose lies, omissions and the left’s creative language. Words matter and those willing to put themselves out there should be held accountable. It is a fight worth having. When a talking head spews hate as truth, calls the President Hitler, and recites skewed statistics, there should be pushback. Without it, truth is the victim of progressive ideology just as the left wants it. Truth to them is relative and that is toxic to integrity which progressives long ago abandoned.

when Obama´s birth certificate #1 was released, Snopes called it valid (even tho many found evidence of photoshopping). When BC 2 was released, Snopes called that one valid. Unfortunately, the name of the attending doctor was different on #1 and #2. It must be that Snopes had an agenda to pursue, because at least one of these documents has to be fake. Their fact checking is a joke, at least as it pertains to politics.. (one of the doc´s names was U. keleli, a name similar to U R Stuck)

The DC Democrat lawyer-politicians and their media minions are a joke, as President Trump holds the winning hand when it comes to borderline security with the vast majority of Americans who actually vote, and Trump knows that.

The Democrats over the years have been using immigration, both illegal and legal, to build up their voter base, that’s why when Trump talks about legitimate borderline security barriers to keep future intending illegal aliens and dangerous illicit narcotics out of the USA, the Democrats always try to change the subject by bringing up “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” that is Democrat political code for legalizing up to 20 million illegal aliens and a “Path to Citizenship” that would eventually grant those legalized alien US voting rights. The Democrats would never be proposing such actions if they thought that more then a small percentage of those mostly all poor, uneducated, and socialist oriented people would ever vote Republican, you can bet your boots on that.

The Democrats consider illegal aliens to be the foundation for a new massive identity based Democrat voting constituency, that by their numbers alone,would be able to cancel out enough “Deplorable” Republican votes to keep the Democrats in dominant and permanent political power in Congress and the White House, by essentially using foreign born people to permanently change US voter demographics. Common sense will tell you that the Democrats would have no other reason big enough to defend and protect illegal aliens and mass illegal immigration. Clearly to the Democrat DC lawyer-politicians political power is everything.

Appearing Tuesday evening on CNN’s Cuomo Primetime, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told host Christopher Cuomo that prosecutors are “moving toward indictment and charges” against President Donald Trump. (Video/Tweet) A partial transcript is as follows: SEN. SHELDON WHITEHOUSE: I think that if there are crimes that he [President Trump] has committed, he should be indicted. I do not at all subscribe to the OLC theory that a president can’t be indicted.

Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters issued a fresh warning to Wall Street on Wednesday as she outlined her agenda as the new chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, saying she won´t let the banks and financial institutions “run amok” and lead the country into another crisis. Speaking at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in Washington, the California lawmaker promised to protect working Americans from big banks. “The crisis was a result of Wall Street running amok,” Waters said, in reference to the 2008 financial crisis. “Large Wall Street banks are not subject to anybody and do great damage

Well, here we are again; another leaked transcript, this time from DOJ Official Bruce Ohr. And as with the prior two transcript leaks, we don’t get the raw information. So let me first, necessarily, reassert our CTH position on these “leaks”. Leaking is bad, period; in all directions. Because *leaking* is simply a method, a mechanism, to direct and control the focus of sunlight upon illicit action. Regardless of whether you support or oppose the message within any individual leak; the leak itself does not expose corruption…. only full and unfiltered information can expose corruption. That means we need the

While Democratic leadership holds the line, apparently refusing to come to the table to negotiate, the resolve of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in holding out might not be trickling down into the freshman class. A number of newly-sworn-in Democrats have reportedly voiced frustration with the leaders within their own party, suggesting that they might be willing to at least open the door to negotiate and see what kind of a deal could result. Democratic New York Rep. Max Rose says he’s ready to get to work, and his first order of business is to

Two left-wing political commentators with CNN complained about President Donald Trump’s alleged sexism Monday over a joke he’d made earlier in the evening to the players of the Clemson Tigers college football team. Following the team’s recent victory in the College Football Playoff National Championship, the president took to Twitter to invite the team to the White House to celebrate.

The U.S.-led coalition in Syria, Operation Inherent Resolve, confirmed in a tweet that, "U.S. service members were killed during an explosion while conducting a routine patrol in Syria today." A U.S. military official confirmed separately to CBS News senior national defense correspondent David Martin reports by Kurdish media outlets that at least two Americans were among the dead in the city of Manbij, not far from the Turkish border, after an explosion hit a coalition convoy.

President Trump opened his Wednesday bright and early with a couple tweets that are becoming more and more apparent as the shutdown continues. 1.) Walls work where ever they are built — including in 77 countries. 2.) Democrats don’t care about open borders or the drug crisis or the crime by illegal aliens.

WASHINGTON— Staring down the next deadline to pay federal workers, the White House shifted tactics Tuesday, trying to bypass House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to negotiate with rank-and-file lawmakers even as President Donald Trump dug in for a prolonged shutdown. The House and Senate announced they would stay in session, canceling an upcoming recess week at home if the shutdown continued, which seemed likely. On the shutdown´s 25th day, Trump did not move off his demand to have Congress provide $5.7 billion to build his promised border wall with Mexico. Democrats say they will discuss border security once the government has

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only 5 more days of the already-“longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more. Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off?

Gillette´s new ad, browbeating men through a #MeToo and "toxic masculinity" pitch, supposedly to persuade men to buy their razors, is so revolting it´s possible to think it´s satire. There is also a 30-second version, which doesn´t even seem to be about selling razors: Seriously, did a spy from Schick get into the Procter & Gamble´s advertising agency and concoct an ad very sure to turn potential customers off? Who would want to buy that after such a string of insults? Isn´t ad rule number one to not insult the customer? Well, this one does.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union address — or deliver it in writing — as long as the government remains shut down. "Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

A family dubbed Britain’s "first transgender family" has announced that they are encouraging the gender transition of their five-year-old son, Jayden. According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse.

Are you a man? That is to say, are you a genetic male who also happens to identify as a "man," for some increasingly antiquated reason? If so, are you under the mistaken impression that you´re not a rapist? Our society has come a long way in shaming men for behaving in any way that anybody anywhere doesn´t like, and reminding men that we´re all complicit even if we don´t behave that way. But it´s not nearly enough. The mere fact of maleness is shameful and problematic. Men and boys everywhere need

The Fight for $15 isn’t living up to its promise. For years, liberals have claimed that the minimum wage needs to increase to $15 an hour to provide a living wage for full-time workers. The stated goal, as socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders writes on his website, is straightforward, “We must ensure that no full-time worker lives in poverty.” In one way, the campaign has been remarkably successful. California and New York are phasing in a statewide $15 an hour minimum wage. Numerous cities, including Seattle, Minneapolis and Washington D.C., have passed $15 an hour minimum wage

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined
