  • Some Federal agency workers given unemployment forms prior to shutdown

    Federal government employee | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    One agency that I know of gave workers unemployment forms prior to the shutdown. Also, the employee said on a past shutdown, they got unemployment pay AND got back pay without having to pay back the unemployment pay. Where is the media to investigate this? More than likely several Federal agencies are doing this. Probably no one is going with zero pay. The Democrats and the media are fabricating lies.

    Imagine that? We survived Net Neutrality's repeal and got fast internet in the process. Despite the doomsday forecasters' grim predictions for the Internet's future following Net Neutrality's repeal, here we are still alive and still breathing. Even more positive news: U.S. Internet speeds rose 40%. Ookla's latest Speedtest found that " US internet speeds rose nearly 40 percent this year.” Here were the winners and losers of fastest broadband and upload speeds per Recode:
  • Democrats say they support border security, but their voting record says otherwise

    As we enter the second week of a partial government shutdown over Democrats’ refusal to give POTUS Donald Trump a paltry $5 billion for border security measures including the construction of a wall, the party of the donkey continues to claim they support it. On Dec. 19, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the chamber floor Democrats have consistently supported “smart border security.” But is that true? Hardly. In fact, their voting record shows just the opposite.
  • ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ Fact Check: Was Queen Elizabeth’s Ambassador Actually Black?

    “Mary Queen of Scots” is director Josie Rourke’s historical retelling of one of the most fraught and interesting periods of the Elizabethan era. But how much of it is fact and how much is fiction? The film, which is written by Beau Willimon (“House of Cards”) and based on a book by John Guy, stars Saoirse Ronan in the titular role as Mary Stuart and Margot Robbie as her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. It also showcases a number of actors of color in prominent roles in both Mary’s and Elizabeth’s courts, including decorated Shakespearean actor Adrian Lester, who is...

    On Dec. 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was attacked. Three hundred fifty Japanese aircraft sank five American battleships and three destroyers. Four hundred U.S. aircraft were destroyed. Over 4,000 were killed or wounded. Subsequent investigations revealed warnings may have been disregarded, such as Four-Star Admiral H.E. Kimmel’s statement in a 1958 radio interview hosted by Notre Dame Law School Dean Clarence Manion: “General Short and I were not given the information available in Washington and were not informed of the impending attack because it was feared that action in Hawaii might deter the Japanese from making the attack. Our president had...
  • Migrants don't bring disease. In fact, they help fight it, report says

    People who oppose immigration often argue that migrants bring disease with them, and that they then become a burden to health systems in their new countries because they’re so sick. But that's not true, a team of experts argued in a new report released Wednesday. In fact, they point out that immigrants make up a significant portion of the healthcare work forces in their new homelands. "There is no evidence to show that migrants are spreading disease," said Dr. Paul Spiegel, who directs the Center for Humanitarian Health at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. "That is a false argument...

    Like millions of Americans, I am following the Mueller witch hunt with a lot of interest and a lot of disgust. The destruction of our justice system going unchallenged by 95% of our congress and legal scholars is angering many of us. But the fact that none of these people being set up and charged need to relinquish their rights is a particularly astonishing thing to see.
  • 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...

    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...
