    Ann Coulter Dot Com ^ | 17 Oct 2018 | Ann Coulter
    Whenever Donald Trump talks about fake news, there are howls of indignation from the establishment media. We're told that the very mention of "fake news" is a direct attack on our democracy, that the alternative is "darkness," that it led to the dismemberment and murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and that, yes, every once in a while there might be a typo, but if you mean the media intentionally report false information, that is dangerous demagoguery. I present CNN's Ana Cabrera. On Sunday night, Cabrera launched a premeditated, vicious, racist lie about President Trump, then proceeded to discuss the false story...
  • The Tocqueville Fraud: Can We Please Stop attributing to him, things he did not say?

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 09/09 | John Pitney
    Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America is a beloved, canonical text; the urge to quote from it is understandably great. Politicians ever seek to demonstrate familiarity with it, from Bill Clinton to Pat Buchanan. One of their favorite quotes runs as follows: I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers—and it was not there. . . . in her fertile fields and bound less forests—and it was not there. . . . in her rich mines and her vast world commerce—and it was not there. . . . in her democratic...
  • Francis' falsified footnotes: He mangles the Church Fathers, too [Catholic Caucus]

    Rorate Caeli ^ | March 3, 2017 | Confitebor
    By this stage of Francis' pontificate, faithful Catholics have become all too familiar with the Pope's tendency to misquote and wrest the words of the Holy Gospel and of previous Magisterial documents not only in his "off the cuff" allocutions, homilies, and interviews, but even in his formal, prepared documents. It only makes sense that, as we shall see below, the Pope shows the same disrespect for the Church Fathers. The cite one of the most egregious manglings of the Church's previous Magisterium: While all the faithful are rightly outraged or troubled by his apostolic exhortation Amoris laetitia's infamous Footnote...

    The "Denziger-Bergoglio" ^ | August 27, 2015
    In this sense, the citations of Saint Thomas Aquinas in the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium have drawn our attention. So it’s a good idea to examine each one of the affirmations of Aquinas in their original context, with the objective of analyzing the fidelity and concordance of this application to his line of thought.
  • Anti-tax activist seems to open door to end of Bush tax cuts [Norquist caves?]

    MarketWatch ^ | July 21 2011 | Jeffry Bartash
    Washington’s renowned anti-tax fighter, Grover Norquist, apparently thinks that letting tax cuts expire doesn’t violate a no-new-taxes pledge he has extracted from most Republicans. See pledge signees here. Norquist told the Washington Post that letting broad-based tax cuts passed in the Bush era would not violate his Taxpayer Protection Pledge. “Not continuing a tax cut is not technically a tax increase,” he told the Post’s editorial page.

    Coming off her week-long One Nation bus tour that was widely seen as a test-run for a presidential campaign, Sarah Palin says she’s starting to see that running for president might not be the best fit for her. “Not only do I love my freedom of not having a title and being a declared candidate — that is liberating — I know you can make a difference as an individual,” she said. “Hopefully, I can inspire others to know that you don’t need a title. You don’t need to be in office to effect positive change.”

    First, phony documents were intended to sink President Bush's 2004 reelection. Then, phony quotations prevented Rush Limbaugh from purchasing an NFL team. Now, the Left seems to be preparing its next tall-tale transcript to smear conservative foreign policy expert Frank Gaffney. Today's Wonkette recounts last night's skirmish between Gaffney and Ron Reagan Jr. on MSNBC's Hardball, which I reported earlier today. The blog claims: Gaffney screams at Reagan, who’s like, “…” Then Reagan essentially tells Frank Gaffney that he and all his stupid arguments are red herrings, like red herrings in a barrel that you shoot easily. And then,...

If we can't challenge these lies (and there are a few more out there) that are PROVEN falsehoods, then we deserve to lose over and over again. Public perception is being shaped by these phony quotes. The quotes are in emails, books, on forums, MSNBC, The Huffington Post. This last post, I put it into pictures so it is easy to see the fraud.

    Veteran Washington Post reporter Daryl Fears, part of a two-person writer team, unmistakably wrote that filmmaker John O'Keefe had “said” he “targeted” ACORN, the advocacy group, for his candid-camera expose, because it registered voters to defeat Republicans. O'Keefe said no such thing. It was a non-quote made out of whole cloth by reporter Fears, and published as fact on Sept. 17. Making the falsehood exponentially worse, the Post story then was retailed worldwide by the Associated Press.

    ABC News Was Misquoted on Crowd Size ABC News Reported D.C. Rally Size in Tens of Thousands, Not 1M to 1.5M as Activist Said. Conservative activists, who organized a march on the U.S. Capitol today in protest of the Obama administration's health care agenda and government spending, erroneously attributed reports on the size of the crowds to ABC News. Matt Kibbe, president of FreedomWorks, the group that organized the event, said on stage at the rally that ABC News was reporting that 1 million to 1.5 million people were in attendance. At no time did ABC News, or its affiliates,...

    So I said to him, "Barack, I know Abe Lincoln, and you ain't Abe Lincoln." You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves. ......Abraham Lincoln

    Vice President Dick Cheney on Monday hit back at CIA Director Leon Panetta, over his suggestion that Cheney wants another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. "I hope my old friend Leon was misquoted," said Cheney in a statement provided to The Hill. "The important thing is whether or not the Obama administration will continue the policies that have kept us safe for the last eight years." Panetta, a veteran politician who served as Bill Clinton's chief of staff, had criticized Cheney for "gallows politics" and said the former vice president hoped the country were subject to another terrorist attack. "I...

    Barack Obama’s campaign was “deceitful” when it clipped part of an interview in which Republican Victory 2008 Chairwoman Carly Fiorina said John McCain was not qualified to be the head of a corporation, Fiorina said Tuesday. Earlier in the day, Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, appeared on MSNBC, where she said none of the candidates is qualified to run a major corporation, but that should not prevent them from running the country. “I don’t think John McCain could run a major corporation. I don’t think Barack Obama could run a major corporation. I don’t think Joe Biden could run...
