  • A Battle Of Misinformation That Only TRUTH Can Win

    A simple choice between good and evil. "When society no longer recognizes an absolute, society will then become its own absolute." Just the other day an adult male (I’d rather not call him a ‘man’) went into a Muncie, Indiana Goodwill store and began preaching Islam. In the course of his sharing the glad tidings of the religion of peace, he snatched an elderly woman by her throat and began choking her while screeching, “Allahu Akbar!” The weirdo was identified as Khaliad Bilal. Sounds like a Hispanic or maybe Irish name, to me - though I want to avoid profiling....

    Gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety was not happy about the National Rifle Association’s presence at a Wednesday strategy meeting at the White House, making their concerns known on social media. In a Thursday Facebook post, Everytown displayed a photograph of NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre seated next to President Donald Trump and added the following critique of the pairing: A picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, none of them are good. Just yesterday, NRA leader Wayne LaPierre sat right next to President Trump as he held his first meeting about his Supreme Court...
  • Facebook's Zuckerberg Reveals 7-Point Plan To Eradicate "Misinformation"

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a message for his billion-plus users: "you're not capable of deciding for yourself what is 'news' and what is not, so we will do it for you." Facebook has been widely blamed - by the left-leaning mainstream media - for allowing the spread of online misinformation, amusingly much of it pro-Trump, but Zuckerberg has rejected the notion that Facebook influenced the outcome of the election or that fake news is a major problem on the service. "Of all the content on Facebook, more than 99 percent of what people see is authentic," he wrote in...

    They distract and misinform you. They disinform you. They lie to you. They make you see—by lying or omission of truth—whatever they want you to see and believe Oh, hey! Of course, I don’t mean literally “death” to the media!. Hahaha! No. No, no, no. Yeah, no: I mean like when Iran’s Ayatollah said, “Death to America.” I only mean what he later said he actually really meant: “It goes without saying that the slogan does not mean death…this slogan means death to the…policies, death to arrogance.” Yes. Policies and arrogance.

    Oops! This leaked document from a major polling organization tells a different story. The Donald is killing it! Check out this leaked Public Policy Polling document describing the truth regarding what is really happening in the presidential race, in this case in Florida, which is a vitally important battleground state. The testimonial for PPP in the upper right hand corner of their website should tell you all you need to know about the biased, screwed up polling that has been going on in this race. The major polling organizations are clearly in the business of being paid to make a...

    <p>Donald Trump’s campaign and top Republican Party officials plan what one person called a “come to Jesus” meeting on Friday in Orlando to discuss the Republican nominee’s struggling campaign, according to multiple sources familiar with the scheduled sit-down.</p> <p>Though a campaign source dismissed it as a "typical" gathering, others described it as a more serious meeting, with one calling it an "emergency meeting." It comes at a time of mounting tension between the campaign and the Republican National Committee, which is facing pressure to pull the plug on Trump’s campaign and redirect party funds down ballot to protect congressional majorities endangered by Trump’s candidacy.</p>

    1. Wikipedia says: "The Iowa Caucus[1] is an electoral event in which residents of the U.S. state of Iowa meet in precinct caucuses in all of Iowa's 1,681 precincts and elect delegates to the corresponding county conventions." 2. Ted Cruz's ground game was said to be massive and the explanation for his victory. He had workers at all precincts. 3. Ted Cruz apologized for his workers spreading misinformation about Ben Carson dropping out of the race. Carson says this misinformation affected vote totals. 4. http://cnsnews.com/news/article/cnsnewscom-staff/iowa-cruz-278-trump-244-rubio-229-carson-93-paul-45 Cruz had 51,416--or 27.7 percent--of the votes.

    VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - The Holy See Press Office has a new vice director. Greg Burke, former Fox News correspondent and a member of Opus Dei, has been appointed deputy spokesman for the Pope, as announced by the Vatican Monday. As of February 1, Burke --- a St. Louis, Missouri native ---will become the Pope's No. 2 spokesman, reporting directly to longtime head spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi. In addition to arranging press conferences and helping communicate information about Vatican activities, Burke will also step in for Lombardi when he is unavailable. The new appointment leaves the position of the current...

    The most poisonous claim in the dominant narrative is that our criminal justice system is a product and a source of racial inequity. The drug war in particular is said to be infected by racial bias. “Mass incarceration” is allegedly destroying black communities by taking fathers away from their families and imposing crippling criminal records on released convicts. Finally, prison is condemned as a huge waste of resources. Nothing in this dominant narrative is true. Prison remains a lifetime achievement award for persistence in criminal offending. Drug enforcement is not the driving factor in the prison system, violent crime is....

    Misinformation voters In an election season, we often bemoan the low-information voter – the person who really doesn’t know that much about the issues or the candidates and goes to the polls having made a decision on the basis of trivia, or general feelings and impressions that don’t necessarily represent who the candidates really are or what they would do in office. There’s no way Barack Obama would ever have become president without low-information voters. But there’s another class of voters that may be just as dangerous, and perhaps we should call them the mis-information voters. They know a lot...

    By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem — January 22, 2015 … The Israeli espionage agency, Mossad, in a rare public statement says that they do support Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu’s and US Congress’s effort to enhance sanctions on Iran. Misinformation spread by the Obama White House earlier today, using Bloomberg News, had stated that the Mossad did not agree with Netanyahu’s stance on placing tougher sanctions against Iran. Israel has argued that Iran is using “peace talks” as an excuse to develop both nuclear weapons and a delivery system for the nuclear weapons to attack Israel, Europe and the US....

    With just one telephone call this year, Erik Wemple of the Washington Post was able to convince Media Matters to let me respond to their attacks on me in the comments section of their website — after they ignored my emails, telephone calls, numerous tweets and posts for seven years. Media Matters purports to correct misinformation that the “conservative” media puts out, but, ironically, they have systematically hidden comments critical of their work from their readers. They have a blog where it appears that conservatives and others can respond, but they don’t tell their readers that they have regularly removed...

    Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday voiced support for the work of a secretive bipartisan immigration coalition in the House, but he said Republican lawmakers must be educated on the issue before legislation can advance. A group of eight lawmakers — four Republicans and four Democrats — has been meeting privately for years to craft a comprehensive immigration overhaul, and they told Boehner and other Republican leaders last week that they were close to a deal. He also refused, as he has before, to weigh in on the contentious question of a path to citizenship for the illegal immigrants now...

    Even if it were a legit number, the 8.3% February unemployment rate, released today by the Labor Department, would be simply terrible—and unacceptable. It would still extend the longest streak of 8%-plus unemployment since the Great Depression. The U.S. economy hasn’t been below 8% unemployment since Obama took office in January 2009. And back in May 2007, unemployment was just 4.4%. But, unfortunately, the true measure of U.S. unemployment is much, much worse. 1. If the size of the U.S. labor force as a share of the total population was the same as it was when Barack Obama took...

    MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK, Wash. — An armed Iraq War veteran suspected of killing a Mount Rainier National Park ranger was found dead Monday, apparently killed by the cold overnight. A plane searching the remote wilderness for Benjamin Colton Barnes, 24, discovered his body lying partially submerged in an icy, snowy mountain creek with snow banks standing several feet high on either side. "He was wearing T-shirt, a pair of jeans and one tennis shoe. That was it," Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said. Barnes did not have any external wounds and appears to have died due to the...
