  • Snopes Defends Planned Parenthood, Falsely Claims Abortion Biz Offers Prenatal Care

    LIFE NEWS ^ | Feb. 23, 2017 | Micaiah Bilger
    Sometimes even the fact checkers need fact checked. The pro-abortion bias of the popular fact checking website Snopes came through recently when it claimed pro-lifers are wrong to say Planned Parenthood lied about providing prenatal care. Snopes rated the claim “mostly false,” arguing that Planned Parenthood never said it provides prenatal care at all its centers. It also claims Planned Parenthood leaders did not emphasize prenatal care as a primary service, and pro-lifers took their comments out of context. The fact check is based on a new Live Action investigation showing employees at the Planned Parenthood abortion business denying women...

    Yesterday afternoon a colleague forwarded me an article from the Daily Mail, asking me if it could possibly be true. The article in question is an expose on, the fact checking site used by journalists and citizens across the world and one of the sites that Facebook recently partnered with to fact check news stories on its platform. The Daily Mail’s article makes a number of claims about the site’s principles and organization, drawing heavily from the proceedings of a contentious divorce between the site’s founders and questioning whether the site could possibly act as a trusted and neutral...

    The CEO of, the fact-checking website that was recently named as one of Facebook’s “fake news” arbiters, has been accused in divorce proceedings of appropriating company funds which he allegedly spent on expensive holidays and prostitutes. David has remarried since his divorce from Barbara in 2014. His current wife, Elyssa Young, works as an administrative worker at Snopes, but she previously had a lengthy career as an escort and adult film star working under the name Erin O’Bryn. Reviews for Young’s “services” have been left on her personal escort website as recently as 2015. Young’s websites and Twitter account...

    Isn't it interesting how a little money can change a person? According to divorce papers, Snopes co-founder David Mikkelson started taking all sorts of trips around the world to bang whores after that sweet liberal shill money started rolling in. While engaging in this debauchery, Mikkelson wrote off just about everything as a business expense, embezzling a reported $98,000. The Snopes co-founder has since settled down and married a [NSFW] part time porn actress, administrator (spicy!), and sex worker. As in, she has a website devoted to being a whore.

At the recent Presidential Candidates’ Debate, there was considerable “fact-checking” going on by liberal media sources, where their fact-checking included as much or more opinionating about their disagreements with Donald Trump than actual referenced...

California Senator Barbara Boxer who was present even claimed that she feared for her safety. However, one problem. No chairs were thrown. Snopes.Com has rated that story as false.

People who have questioned the article's interpretation of the gesture should take a close look at these videos, and listen to them as well. It does not take forensic science to recreate the scenario. It's all there in the videos: Just after Obama walked on stage, an off-camera voice coming from behind him cried, “Allahu Akbar.” This is a Muslim expression meaning “God is the greatest,” a cry that Muhammad, the creator of Islam, made frequent use of to incite people to violence and to...

    The negative job growth that began during the last year of Bush's presidency was perfectly normal, and even expected; it was the natural byproduct of the market correction. It was expected to last for about a year -- and, it did. Job creation was expected to return to normal in February of 2009, but as the chart shows, under Obama's dismal leadership, job creation recovered too slowly, taking a year to get to baseline, when it should have taken no more than three months.

    An investment fund controlled by billionaire George Soros has significantly boosted its stake in Minneapolis-based Target Corp. Soros Fund Management in New York, whose portfolio is worth more than $7 billion, purchased 543,900 shares of Target stock in the second quarter, according to documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Overall, Soros owns 552,600 shares, or 0.08 percent of the retailer, which the investment firm valued at $25.9 million, the filing says. (State Street Corp., Target's largest investor, owns 63.5 million shares, or 9.4 percent of the company.) In an e-mail, Soros spokesperson Michael Vachon declined to comment. Known...

    Snopes, Soros and the Supreme Courts Kagan We-l-l-l-l now, I guess the time has come to check out Snopes! Ya' don't suppose it might not be a good time to take a second look at some of the stuff that got kicked in the ditch by Snopes, do ya'? We've known that it was owned by a lefty couple but hadn't known it to be financed by Soros! Snopes is heavily financed by George Soros; a big time supporter of Obama! In our Search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions. I went to...

    The online hoaxbusting website has changed its reference to the purported attending physician at Barack Obama's birth. WND reported just days ago that the site, along with a Buffalo newspaper, referenced a Dr. Rodney T. West as the physician at the birth. However, since that report was published, the passage has been edited to remove a section saying the woman interviewed, talking about the "obstetrician who delivered him," was "referring to Dr. Rodney T. West, who died in February at the age of 98."

    With the heating season soon to begin I thought I would re-run this blog post from January of this year. For those of you still using home heating oil to heat your houses, read up. Coming soon to an oil tank near you: bio-oil. I'm really glad we changed over to propane to heat our house and here is why. Starting this year I believe, Massachusetts is changing over from standard home heating oil to something they call "bio-oil". I've done some research on it. Not only will it be more expensive (because of the bio-mass added to it) but...

    It is one of the paradoxes of the Internet. Along with the freest access to knowledge the world has ever seen comes a staggering amount of untruth, from imagined threats on health care to too-easy-to-be-true ways to earn money by forwarding an e-mail message to 10 friends. "A cesspool," Google's chief executive, Eric E. Schmidt, once called it. David and Barbara Mikkelson are among those trying to clean the cesspool. The unassuming California couple run Snopes, one of the most popular fact-checking destinations on the Web. For well over a decade they have acted as arbiters in the Age of...

    Many of the same news organizations and research groups today dismissing concerns about Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility were far more eager to cover the issue when Republican presidential candidate John McCain was the subject. An archive search shows the question of McCain's birth certificate and his eligibility to be president was actively pursued by Democratic Party activists and the mainstream media in the run-up to the 2008 presidential election, despite the ridicule now heaped upon those questioning Obama's qualifications under Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution. In an article published Feb. 28, 2008, months before McCain was nominated for...

    I just received an email from a friend regarding something new on the 2009 Federal IRS Tax Return requiring all gun owners to disclose all firearms they own. It claimed that this was verified by Snopes.The email claims it was snuck in under a list of minor regulatory changes to the IRS laws and signed off without being read by the Congress Critters.According to the email, all gun owners would need to pay a registration fee of $50 per firearm and also would require that the owners be fingerprinted.It seems far-fetched, but I wouldn't put it past the pResident.

    One would think an entire think-tank university staff is behind Snopes. Not so. It's a couple — husband and wife. Their opinions are considered bible by countless who check out "the facts" by going to These countless include college profs, Congresspersons, the National Review writers, and masses climbing all over the grassroots.
