  • Kavanaugh Accuser Admits: I Made Up Claims of Sexual Assault to "Get Attention"

    A woman who accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault admitted to congressional investigators she made up her claims to "get attention."According to a letter sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday afternoon, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton for criminal prosecution and revealed her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh's nomination. From the letter, bolding is mine:  Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3)...
  • Fact check: Trump’s claim that Democrats let cop killer stay in U.S. is false

    Sacramento Bee ^ | November 01, 2018 | Sam Stanton
    President Trump’s closing argument for the midterm elections includes a tweet featuring convicted cop killer Luis Bracamontes, who killed two Sacramento-area deputies in a 2014 rampage. The tweet features video of Bracamontes spewing profanities while on trial in Sacramento County Superior Court, a frequent occurrence in the years of court hearings he faced. But the president’s claim that “Democrats let him into our country” is not entirely accurate, and neither is the claim that “Democrats let him stay.”

    A caravan of thousands of Honduran migrants is headed north in hopes of crossing the U.S. border. You may have heard some scary things about it. What's true and what's false? Here are five allegations bouncing around the internet that are definitely "alternative facts." MYTH 1: It's being funded by Democrats. Trump said at a campaign rally on Thursday that "a lot of money has been passing to people" traveling north from Honduras. A Republican from Florida, Rep. Matt Gaetz shared a short video that Trump later promoted of migrants being given cash and suggested that they were being funded...
  • Veterans fire back at ‘desperate’ attack on Scott’s Navy service

    A group of veterans supporting Governor Rick Scott is condemning a new TV ad by a Democratic-leaning group named VoteVet. In the ad, a veteran criticizes Scott’s wearing of a Navy hat... “This ad is shameful, said Chip Diehl, a retired Air Force Brigadier General. “A weak, last minute shot to nowhere. Veterans engage to win and win with pride. We serve and follow our leaders... Why is it such a big deal when Scott wears the Navy hat?

    Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s senate campaign was flagged by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Sunday for accepting “excessive” and “impermissible” donations. The FEC notified O’Rourke that a preliminary review of his campaign’s July quarterly report showed contributions from one or more individuals with addresses outside of the United States. Donations were also made that “exceed the limit” determined by the federal government. O’Rourke has 45 days to respond.

    A prostitute does not love the man who is having relations with her and neither does he love her. It's all for the pleasure and the money. Liberal women often do not know what true love (agape) is, because they grew up with a value system that does not even teach about that. Women who truly have Biblical values DO understand what agape love is about and have husbands to love them with that love. Neither woman often understands the other and absolutely despises the other's culture and belief system. The liberal woman becomes just a sex object much like...

    October is National Lie to Your Pollster Month! It's time to put an end to polling madness. Before there was fake news, there was polling. Virtually all polling results released to the public is agenda driven astroturfing. We the public should lie to our pollster no matter what the issue or the questions being asked. It doesn't matter if you're right or left or libertarian. The goal is to make polling so inaccurate and fallacious that the media gives up on this not so subtle form of propaganda and manipulation. Remember, so-called poll results are not news, they are the...
  • [2016] Harry Reid lied about Mitt Romney’s taxes. He’s still not sorry. [Mentor to Democrat Leaders]

    Washington Post ^ | 09/15/2016 | Chris Cillizza
    ... That is the ultimate statement of political cynicism. What Reid is saying — if you consider the comments to Bash last year and those to Terris recently — is that the ends justify the means in all cases. It doesn't really matter if what he said about Romney's taxes is wrong. All that matters is that Romney lost. That Romney lost is justification enough for Reid to have made the false allegation. ...

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | October 4, 2018 | Jim Simpson
    The left’s smear tactics have come on full display during the surfeit of attacks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Whether you support or oppose this SCOTUS nomination, the tactics being used are more extreme even than during the Clarence Thomas hearings. But as we know, they are nothing new, and Democrats will continue to use them until the American people scream “Enough!” — because they are effective. The real goal is psychological terrorism—that is, engaging in a scorched-earth effort to destroy the target, and in so doing intimidating anyone willing to enter public service, or even just support a...

    The Blaze ^ | oct 3 2018 | Chris Enloe
    During the hearing, Rachel Mitchell, the Arizona sex crimes prosecutor who questioned Ford on behalf of Republican senators, asked Ford: “Have you ever had discussions with anyone, besides your attorneys, on how to take a polygraph? And I don’t just mean countermeasures, but I mean any sort of tips or anything like that?” “Never,” Ford responded, adding that she was fearful of the test itself. “Have you ever given tips or advice to somebody who was looking to take a polygraph test?” Mitchell followed up. “Never,” Ford answered.
  • Palo Alto building permit backs up Ford’s testimony

    Palo Alto Daily Post ^ | 9/29/18 | Allison Levitsky
    Despite an online rumor to the contrary, a building permit from the city of Palo Alto does not contradict Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony regarding a second front door she had installed on her house. As the Post reported on Tuesday (Sept. 25), a 2008 building permit for the 753-square-foot expansion on Ford’s L-shaped, Eichler-style home includes plans for a new door on the master bedroom. The story mistakenly referred to the new bedroom door as a backdoor. Conservative pundit Paul Sperry tweeted about the second door on Thursday (Sept. 27), claiming the 2008 date of the permit “raises questions” about...

    My Wife | 30 September 2018 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    A survey of one has revealed the truth. My wife (who is apolitical, by the way), said that Ford would remember whether she was with her boyfriend (one of the other guys folks are writing articles about) or Kavanaugh. The very fact that some are beginning to claim that two other guys are saying they were with her and not Kavanaugh shows that SHE IS LYING. The apologists are coming out of the woodwork to try and protect her and help her make an exit to keep her from prosecution or persecution by those who know she has lied. No...
  • The Distortion/Smear Campaign

    09/29/2018 1:44:06 PM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 6 replies
    Smear campaigners carefully and strategically use lies, exaggerations, suspicions, and false accusations to destroy your credibility. They hide behind a cloak of upstanding heroism and feigned innocence in an attempt to make as many people as possible think their efforts are based not on their vindictiveness, but on upstanding concern. Abusive people enjoy this framing game. They provoke their chosen target for a reaction then claim it as evidence of mental instability, evil-mindedness, or something else that implies it is the victim who is at fault. Diverting all attention away from their own behavior, the bully seeks support from others...

When asked about the impact of the explosive testimony of Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò, Sire answers that Pope Francis is a "completely extraordinary man for the cardinals to have chosen," adding, "If they'd known what sort of man he was, they wouldn't have voted for him." He continues, "The thing is, we've had this extraordinary situation covered up by the media who've promoted him as this great reformer – which he isn't at...

    When Pope Francis was the bishop of Argentina, many sex abuse victims tried to contact him to report the horrific things done to them or their family members by predator priests. But according to the pope, there were never any reports of sex abuse in his diocese. Pope Francis claimed this in a book of interviews with him compiled by Robert Laffont, as referenced in this article by Debra Heine, who notes that the pope was caught denying an easily verifiable fact. Pope Francis claimed not only that he never had any complaints of sex abuse in Argentina but that he...

    On September 14, the open-source intelligence group Bellingcat and the investigative news website The Insider released passport data belonging to Alexander Petrov, one of the men identified by British authorities as a suspect in the March 4 nerve-agent attack in Salisbury, showing that his passport files contain various “top-secret” markings that seem to contradict his claims that he’s a mere civilian. Hours later, the newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported that the leaked passport records include yet another piece of evidence linking Petrov to Russia’s intelligence services: below one marking, the phone number 195-79-66 appears. This number, the newspaper says, is linked...

    In a chilly, high-ceilinged room in a Sussex preparatory school in the winter of 1959, I work intently on my model of the destroyer HMS Cossack. Such models come in lurid cardboard boxes illustrated with pictures of aircraft, tanks and warships, amid scenes of fiery melodrama, guns emitting orange streaks of flame, and the smoke of battle. With these and our imaginations, we seek to recreate the thrill of the war we have just missed, in which our fathers fought and our mothers endured privations. This is a war just over the horizon of time in which we wish we...
