Misinformation and the Jan. 6 insurrection:
When ‘patriot warriors’ were fed lies

Original Article

Posted By: MDConservative, 7/5/2021 3:45:11 PM

It was around 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 11, when police got word of a Nissan Versa driving erratically near the New York-New Jersey border. Once they caught up to the driver, they discovered the man covered in blood, with gashes across his arms and thighs. "I am tired," Jeffrey Sabol, 51, told the Clarkstown, N.Y., police officers as they aided him, according to court documents. "I am done fighting."

Comments:

Don't read the headline and quit there. Pay attention to the structure of the story and how it is documented to reach the conclusion. This is propaganda at its finest, an art. Of course those who believe this election was "stolen" are all misinformed...steeped in lies regarding the pandemic, gun confiscation, and child pedophilia...just all lies. Any tin-foil hat evidence you may offer is immediately debased. By the end of this article you'll appreciate those lying...

This story deserves the Konrad Kujau award for excellence in political fiction. There is no such award but look up the name.

It’s Politifact for heaven’s sakes - known liars. Appreciate the posting, but my time is too precious to read lies. I hope the people still imprisoned are freed soon. This is America - political prisoners is a communist trait.

PolitiFact, an imprint of the leftoid Tampa Bay Times, is absolutely not to be trusted at anytime. Dishonest and ideologically corrupted, the Times damages American democracy by lying and labeling it as truth. This organization should go out of business. Naturally, I'm not interested in perusing or parsing their, ahem, stuff.

Does Bill or the people who read this misinformation even look at the evidence? They should take a look at hereistheevidence.com. I hope when Bill grows up he turns into a real reporter instead of a democrat shill. Anyone who believes the election wasn’t stolen hasn’t seriously looked.

An excellent story documenting how the Left thinks about the Right. And remember, there was no investigation, because there was not cheating, so there was not investigation, because there was no cheating . . . .

I saw Politifact, but started to read anyway. I wasted one minute of my life. I should have known better. We on the right are always being fed lies, especially by Fox and of course by Donald Trump, who by the way has the greatest instincts of any person I ever knew besides my father. If the lefties truly believe that Old Drooling Mouth was fairly elected, then let states audit the election and make themselves fools if Biden did really win. I know, we know, and they know the fix was in. Let there be an excrement storm if it is found that Trump won. It’s better than letting this farcical administration continue down this path of destruction of our country.

The biggest mistake made by Sabol is not following clear progressive precedent in burning and looting an American city in the Northeast or Midwest or engaging in a two month violent siege of a US courthouse in a large city in the Pacific Northwest. Had he done so, he'd not have to worry about being incarcerated while awaiting trial. Perhaps next time he feels the need to protest against our government, he'll drop the Carhart for a BLM or Antifa hoodie and trade the teal backpack for a black one packed with incendiaries.

This is a good example of the misinformation that the country is probably going to be served as more and more focus on the Jan. 6 incident occurs and people start asking tough questions.

Trump Organization and CFO Allen Weisselberg
Indicted on Tax Charges

A New York grand jury has indicted the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer with tax-related crimes that will be made public Thursday in court, people familiar with the matter said, marking the first criminal charges against the former president’s company since prosecutors began investigating it three years ago. The charges against the company and longtime CFO Allen Weisselberg are a blow to former President Donald Trump, who has fended off multiple criminal and civil probes during and after his presidency. But the initial charges won’t implicate Mr. Trump himself, his lawyer said...

Anne Blom has called Milwaukee home for more than 40 years. She raised three children in a house she has owned for decades in Washington Heights, a neighborhood full of shade, wide streets and well-kept lawns. On a scale of 1 to 10, she’d rate the city a 9. “We love what the city has to offer,” she said. But Blom, who is white, acknowledges that Milwaukee doesn’t provide everyone with the same opportunities. She recalled an instance years ago when a Black friend house sat for her. When he was outside the home one day, a passerby questioned his presence there.

Brazilian auto racer Helio Castroneves made history after winning his fourth Indianapolis 500 race on Sunday. He is now one of four drivers to win "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" four times. Castroneves, who took the checkered flag in 2001, 2002 and 2009, held off runner-up racer Alex Palou, winning by a mere .4928 of a second. Castroneves claimed his first three wins with Team Penske, but Sunday's win was the first Indy 500 win for Meyer Shank Racing. CORRECTION*

There was at least one Republican who disagreed with former House Speaker Paul Ryan's critique of Donald Trump's hold on the party. That would be Trump. "Paul Ryan has been a curse to the Republican Party," Trump said as part of a lengthy statement issued Friday by the former president. "He has no clue as to what needs to be done for our Country, was a weak and ineffective leader, and spends all of his time fighting Republicans as opposed to Democrats who are destroying our Country."

Acknowledging that "conservatives find ourselves at a crossroads," former House Speaker Paul Ryan sought to map out a vision for the Republican Party in the post-Donald Trump era. In an address Thursday night at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, Ryan credited Trump for bringing "many new voters into our party" but said Republicans have to face a reality. "If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or of second-rate imitations, then we're not going anywhere," Ryan said.

The grand experiment in self-governance that is the United States is rooted in trust and confidence we all will work toward the greater good. But the nation’s founders had experience with a king and his expected benevolence — and what could happen when things didn’t work out.

Video evidence suggests Biden is a

When Catherine the Great of Russia traveled in the late 18th-century, her former lover, Grigory Potemkin, would travel ahead of her and build hasty facades along the main thoroughfares in impoverished, bedraggled villages to create the impression of a prosperous nation. Thus, a Potemkin village is a fake that artificially puffs up a leader’s competence and popularity. Two recent videos, one of Biden’s fans turning out to greet him in Michigan and another of Trump’s fans turning out for him in Florida, show that Biden is a Potemkin president. It’s all fake.

'When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people,' she wrote.

Bush, who was first elected to the House of Representatives in November, has been widely viewed as the newest member of the so-called 'Squad' of congresswomen known for being outspoken on their left-wing views, and she is no stranger to controversy.

National Geographic posted an unhinged and unscientific tweet on Independence Day saying fireworks are racist because they affect communities of color.What complete BS. This is what can be described as “scientism” and NOT “science.” There is absolutely no proof to support this theory. In fact, in cities like St. Louis and New York City, minorities shoot off guns on New Year’s Eve and the 4th of July. This is much more dangerous than sniffing fireworks smoke for a night.

The initiative will spotlight vaccines in pediatricians’ offices so patients ages 12 to 18 can get immunized ahead of the school year and fall sports, according to a White House official. Mr. Biden also will detail efforts to get the shots into workplaces, so vaccination is more convenient.(Snip)Mr. Biden is navigating a duality of his own, celebrating his administration’s progress in the fight against the pandemic
