Where is the Real Journalism!


“We cannot have a self-governing society as was intended for our Republic if the government, with the complicity of the mainstream media, decides that there are things we are not allowed to know about it. President Trump should end the US government’s war on Assange…and on all whistleblowers and their publishers.” —Ron Paul

Dr. Paul, as usual, is right. Western corporate journalism has become so hopelessly politicized that it no longer reports the truth. They have become propaganda arms that aid and abet war and government corruption. They help cover up or obfuscate corruption rather than expose it. Julian Assange is a true journalist who is currently facing barbaric injustice for doing his job. Corporate media has for the most part has shamefully ignored the story.

Julian Assange reported the truth and as a consequence he has been put through Hell—legal and otherwise—as punishment. The Deep State wants him imprisoned for life in America—even though he’s not an American citizen.

Assange needs to be pardoned (even though he has done nothing wrong) and released. President Trump needs to stop listening to Pompeo on this matter and instead listen to American patriots who know the importance of real journalism and its value to our Republic.

Free Assange!

—Ben Garrison

Ultimate Election Malfeasance: The Manipulation of Reality 


The Fake News media also threatens reality, but the greatest threat is that the tech giants will misrepresent President Trump using deepfake technology to steal the election.

Ultimate Election Malfeasance: The Manipulation of Reality

I am very worried about the November 2020 presidential election.

I have been writing about the unparalleled and sinister anti-American attempts to remove President Donald Trump from office for three years. In April 2020 I wrote, The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness’, to raise public awareness in advance of the 2020 election. The Book describes fifty of the most sinister leftist, Islamist, globalists attacks on America.

It is now 41 days until the election. The enemies of America are desperate and are behaving like cornered animals poised for attack. Their survival is at stake because if POTUS is reelected, he will take down the Deep State and expose them all. They know it and Trump knows it.

Even more than election fraud, I believe there is going to be an assault on objective reality using artificial intelligence technology called deepfakes. Wikipedia defines deepfakes as, “synthetic media in which a person in an existing image or video is replaced with someone else’s likeness. While the act of faking content is not new, deepfakes leverage powerful techniques from machine learning and artificial intelligence to manipulate or generate visual and audio content with a high potential to deceive.”

A sane society of ordered liberty requires agreement on what is real. We believe what we see with our own eyes. I believe the desperate Internet behemoths will try to manipulate what is perceived as real using deepfakes, to win their battle to oust POTUS and control society. It is the epitome of social engineering. Let me explain.

In 1995 I wrote the manuscript for my philosophy of behavior book, Dear America: Who’s Driving the Bus? I was trying to help people understand why they do what they do, so that they could change their behavior. I never considered the book to be political. When I published the book in 2011, my editor remarked that the book is very political. I was stunned because I had never considered the political applications of the book. Now I do.

Dear America explains how our minds develop, and how thought precedes behavior. When we are in our most rational adult state of mind we behave like rational adults. If we are mobilized and regress back to childish thinking, we behave like children even though we are chronological adults. Of course the book is political – we vote the way we think!

Ordered liberty requires a society of rational adults

Ordered liberty requires a society of rational adults. Rational adults question information and use their critical thinking skills to formulate appropriate responses. Rational adults live in objective reality, the world of facts. They are unavoidably in conflict with chronological adults regressed back to childish thinking, who live in subjective reality, the world of feelings. Children believe what they are told unquestioningly, and behave accordingly. So do regressed adults.

A large segment of the U.S. population has been deliberately regressed back to childish thinking – they live in subjective reality where feelings matter and facts are ignored. Regressed adults are easily manipulated and have very little impulse control – they are basically emotional children disguised as adults.

Online freedom is not just a matter of censorship and freedom of speech – it is now a matter of reality! In Hoax 23: The Humanitarian Hoax of Multiple Realities, I discuss the catastrophic consequences of a society that no longer agrees on what is real. A sane society of ordered liberty requires agreement on what is real. We believe what we see with our own eyes. In my opinion, the ends-justify-the-means Internet behemoths are poised to manipulate what we see using deepfakes to win their battle to oust POTUS and control society. It is ultimate election malfeasance, and the epitome of social engineering. Manipulating reality is the nuclear weapon in the globalist war on America-first President Donald Trump.

A chilling article written by science writer, Rob Toews, appeared in Forbes May 25, 2020. “Deepfakes Are Going To Wreak Havoc On Society: We Are Not Prepared.” Toews explains the menace of deepfake technology and the artificial intelligence involved. Under the heading, When seeing is not believing, he writes:

Deepfakes Are Going To Wreak Havoc On Society: We Are Not Prepared

“It does not require much imagination to grasp the harm that could be done if entire populations can be shown fabricated videos that they believe are real. Imagine deepfake footage of a politician engaging in bribery or sexual assault right before an election; or of U.S. soldiers committing atrocities against civilians overseas; or of President Trump declaring the launch of nuclear weapons against North Korea. In a world where even some uncertainty exists as to whether such clips are authentic, the consequences could be catastrophic.”

Deepfakes are the latest technological assault on reality. Toews quotes U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (FL), “In the old days, if you wanted to threaten the United States, you needed 10 aircraft carriers, and nuclear weapons, and long-range missiles. Today….all you need is the ability to produce a very realistic fake video that could undermine our elections, that could throw our country into tremendous crisis internally and weaken us deeply.”

Toews writes that according to USC professor Hao Li, the existence of deepfakes is also being used to discredit what is real. “People are already using the fact that deepfakes exist to discredit genuine video evidence. Even though there’s footage of you doing or saying something, you can say it was a deepfake and it’s very hard to prove otherwise.”

Brad Parscale’s USA Today article, “Trump is right: More than Facebook & Twitter, Google threatens Democracy, online Freedom”, was written two years ago and we are more vulnerable to Google, Twitter, and Facebook than ever before. The globalist tech giants need Beijing Biden in the White House and America-first Trump out. They will do anything and everything to remove him. According to Parscale, “Google, YouTube, and other tech giants already filter, suppress, and even directly attack conservatives.” These sins of omission and sins of commission are designed to change people’s perception of reality.

The Fake News media also threatens reality, but the greatest threat is that the tech giants will misrepresent President Trump using deepfake technology to steal the election

The Fake News media also threatens reality, but the greatest threat is that the tech giants will misrepresent President Trump using deepfake technology to steal the election. I have written extensively about the conflict between objective reality and subjective reality. The menace of technological virtual reality is here.

Deepfakers can manipulate reality using their deepfake technology to trick you into believing their falsified Trump messaging. If the public believes that what they see is real – that will form the basis for their voting behavior and for their responses to the election outcome.  The Internet is now the public square. The Internet behemoths and technocrats who own AI technology now control the public square. Google, Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, Alibaba are likely to unleash a mass of deepfake unreality bombs in their ends-justify-the-means desperation to defeat Trump in November.

The final battle for America is the battle for reality. The technocrats are trying to force us into a post-truth world where shared standards for objective reality no longer exist. They are trying to convince us that snow is black. Don’t let them.

Whatfinger News: Leading the Battle To Save America From SocialismIn the midst of gruelling Election Campaign Blues where the majority of mainstream and social media seem to be backing the Democrat transformation of America over to a complete misery-causing Socialist State, comes great News: Whatfinger News is gaining significantly on the Fake News disseminated daily by the once Conservative-leaning Drudge Report.

That’s the kind of WOO-HOO NEWS that has passionate lovers of America, including Canada Free Press (CFP) over the moon!

‘Whatfinger News Is Now Larger Than Almost All Aggregates Under Us Combined! ONLY Drudge is larger’… Sgt. Pat, Whatfinger, Sept. 20, 2020.

WhatFinger and the fight to save America from soul-killing socialism

This is the true story about how two veterans—who not only love their country, but served it—rose up from the bottom of the pile climbing up to the top of the hill, throwing everything they had into the fight to save America from soul-killing socialism.

“As of September 19, 2020, Whatfinger News is now approximately 25.3% of the size of the Drudge Report… making us larger than almost all aggregates below us combined.”-Sgt. Pat.

This is how Sgts. Pat and Mike did it (Whatfinger, Sept. 20, 2020)

When it comes to saving America, no one’s home any more over at Drudge.  Matt Drudge, who rode to fame on the hem of Monica Lewinsky’s blue dress, doesn’t seem to be there any more.

Even President Donald Trump is aware that Drudge has fled the Save America Arena:

“President Trump is right…. Drudge is declining and Whatfinger is taking up the slack. If our President gave us such a note on his Twitter…. We would grow far far faster, which would help him greatly as we are his greatest friends in the news industry…”, notes Sgt. Pat.

“To Our readers: THANK YOU for voting the way you did. Letting us show the world our true size. Together now, we can take on Drudge and help educate as many people as possible, and just maybe help Trump win even more states come November. Please spread the word, and every time you see some site claiming to be a ‘Drudge killer’ knowing now that you can add up all other’ Drudge Killers’ and still they do not match Whatfinger News in page views, please let them know. Help us spread the world. We’re fighting for this nation to stay free, and up against the leftist media, this is a fight for survival so spread the word…. be a keyboard warrior and help us help our nation and President Trump…

“Below is Google Stats, which Similarweb bases their own stats ons in page views:

Google Stats

Whatfinger is now not only the number 2 aggregate after Drudge

“What this now means… Whatfinger is now not only the number 2 aggregate after Drudge, but our monthly rate as well as daily rate bests the combination of all aggregates below us. ALL OF THEM…

“Drudge Report: 63 million Page views per month.

“Whatfinger News is now at 16 million Page views plus per month…
CFP is at 6.019 million pages
Bongino is at 3.37 million pageviews per month
The Lib. Daily is at 3.228 million pageviews per month
Rantingly is at 851,000 per month
Revolver is at 352,000 per month
Total for all sites below Whatfinger News is 12,820,000 pageviews per month.”

“What this means is Whatfinger News is at present the ONLY true competition for Drudge.”

Way to go, Whatfinger!

Says Sgt. Pat: “All of those clicks you all do on our advertisers we’ll be putting to good use to grow faster so we can be a force against The Drudge Report, and the rest of the fake news industry, which seems intent on destroying the GREATEST President of our lifetime. We all know the battle that is ahead…. It’s fight time… Let us all fight with our keyboards and spread the word. Refute the lies of the fake news media and help Whatfinger grow… Together we will help save this nation so that we never need to witness a real revolution, something the left wants to try. Once they try gun confiscation in a Biden Administration, all bets are off and America will see that Second American Revolution. So we MUST do everything we can to stop them.”

Semper Fi!  God Bless America.

Fox News Harris Faulkner and Crew Have Meltdown When Newt Gingrich Accurately Points Out George Soros Funding of Radical District Attorneys…


CTH has previously mentioned the not-so-subtle agenda carried by several FOX news hosts including the generously dissonant Harris Faulkner. However, today the effort to pretend not to know was on full display as the FOX crew awkwardly shut down Newt Gingrich for calling out George Soros. WATCH:

.

It is a demonstrable fact that George Soros has been attempting to manipulate law and order by funding radical left-wing ideologues to run for district attorney offices. St Louis’ Kimberly Gardner is one such example.  The selective prosecution, and lack thereof, is a decision leading to increased crime and violence within the communities.

In an era when truth-telling is filtered by politics the background agenda of all news hosts is becoming increasingly clear.

On a related note the Minneapolis city council is shocked at the stunning increases in crime since they defunded their police department and removed $1 million:

 

(NYPost) Minneapolis City Council members, who just two months ago moved to eliminate the police department, sounded the alarm during a Wednesday meeting about a surge in crime seen by their constituents.

Council members pressed police Chief Medaria Arradondo about the uptick in crimes that included daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and street racing.

“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, noting that constituents’ calls to the Minneapolis Police Department have gone unanswered. “That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.

The Minneapolis Police Department’s crime data shows a rise in assaults, robberies and homicides, as well as property crimes and arson, according to Minnesota Public Radio. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than those slain in all of last year.

Arradondo said about 100 officers have left the department or have taken a leave of absence since the start of the year, which is more than double the typical number of officers who either step down from the department or are inactive that year, MPR reported.

In July, the council took several steps toward dismantling the city’s police department, including approving an amendment to remove $1 million from the police department and reallocate it toward the health department to hire “violence interrupters” who are intended to defuse potentially violent situations.

The NEW NORM Where Nobody Knows the Truth


We are witnessing serious civil unrest which is rising in the Blue states that have been the most Draconian. In Oregon, it is even rising to the point that people are looking to form a militia to overthrow the government. This is being widely talked about on social media. The theory is that the militant BLM and ANTIFA have boasted that they started fires to burn out whites in the southern part of the state. But claims that the FBI have arrested ANTIFA members for starting fires have been denied by the FBI. More than ONE MILLION Oregon residents have had to evacuate as fires burned them out of their homes. The problem which has emerged is nobody believes the government no less Facebook which censors even doctors on COVID. When Facebook and Youtube censor simply doctors, why would anyone believe their claims about ANTIFA are false? This is the entire problem with Fake News – you distrust everything.

This reminds me of the French Revolution. It became commonly believed that Marie Antoinette said of the starving French peasants, “Let them eat Cake” which is the crust on the pan, not “cake” as we know it. There is no evidence that she ever said such a thing. Nevertheless, it was the battle cry to start the French Revolution and it was commonly believed by everyone. This is my point. It really does not matter if ANTIFA started fires or did not. Their desire to create such chaos support that belief regardless of the veracity of the allegation. Neither Facebook nor the FBI can win the day for neither has any credibility anymore. The FBI is neck-deep in corruption and YouTube along with Facebook cannot be trusted. Neither can all the leftist press that holds themselves out to be fact-checkers.

Welcome to the NEW NORM where the press and social media have just lost all credibility so whatever the truth may be, we just live in a world where nothing can be trusted anymore.

Journalists are Less Trusted than Police


COMMENT: Way back when channels 2, 4, and 7 were real choice and the trusted lockstep words of Peter, Walter, and Chet reading the scripted 6 oclock news was mostly taken as truth – Those who control the media control the public – ah, the good old days.
A bit more complicated and confusing now a days, but if one just lives by the idiom “if it’s on tv and in the ‘news’, it ain’t the truth”, that simplifies things.
There should be significant legal and financial liabilities placed on the news outlets to encourage truth over propaganda, balanced stories rather than one-sided hit pieces. If they can’t back up their reporting with provable facts when challenged in court, it’ll cost them big. Get convicted in court of spreading propaganda, loose your broadcast license. Not perfect but lots better than what we have now.

G

REPLY: I fully agree. These people are destroying our future but like Duranty of the New York Times who was a Communist sympathizer, we have the very same crisis once again. This is no longer the “free press” for they interpret that as being free to twist the truth to what they want you to believe. Journalists are even less trusted than police according to Gallup. This is certainly not a career you should encourage your children to pursue. Journalists rise to the top 5 to be hanged in a revolution. Throughout history, these are certainly the people many hunt down for destroying society. Both Hitler and Lenin targeted the journalists who opposed them.

Way Beyond Bias


A majority of what ails America is a direct result of the lies and manipulation of the unholy alliance between the Democrat Party and the propaganda media machine

Media, Way Beyond Bias

When we think of the last four years of political chaos and civil unrest, is there one particular entity that seems to stand out as the cause?

For many, the list of prime suspects might include BLM, KKK, the far-right, the far-left, illegal aliens, ANTIFA, and maybe a few Congress members.

For America to have experienced this level of turmoil, this fast with anarchy reaching nearly every aspect of daily life, it should come as no surprise that it would take a lot of power and influence to be accountable for all of it.

Media bias is more than just being one-sided, untruthful, or unfair

Who or what could be so influential they could manipulate all of the riots currently burning down American cities or intensify inner-city conflicts resulting in hundreds of black men being murdered by other black men? Who has the power to do all of that?

There is only one entity on the planet that can wield such power as to be able to influence the perception of the American people, Wall Street, and PresidentIal elections, and that’s the media.

The Founding Fathers knew the importance of having an independent and free press. They granted the media with certain powers, such as reporting news or circulating opinions without government censorship.  Freedom of the press is protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and because of this, it is supposed to be above politics.

But when the media loses its vocation, as is the case in The United States, and becomes biased in its reporting, it must inherit all of the destruction and harm that it has sown.

But Media bias is more than just being one-sided, untruthful, or unfair to certain groups; it has real life and death consequences and creates instability in society.

Democrat propaganda media machine

The media has far-reaching control, which is why it is used every day by advertisers to influence sales. It’s also used by politicians to influence votes because it has the power to persuade and to change the way people act.

We don’t immediately think of CNN, MSNBC, or The New York Times when it comes to contributing to the murder rate, riots, or impeachment process, but we should.

For several months, many Americans were unaware that the country was experiencing explosive rioting.  Instead, because of media bias, they believed what was occurring was peaceful protests.

The Democrat propaganda media machine did not cover the catastrophic reality of average Americans or police officers being attacked. It was a political decision that had deadly consequences.

Because the media ignored these violent incidents, they were allowed to continue and escalate under Democrat mayors and governors. It translated into more buildings being torched, more police being injured, and more Americans being beaten and killed.

America not having an ethical and honest media

Even with the occasional video surfacing that showed innocent citizens being beaten and robbed and establishments being ransacked and looted,
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Democrat Jerry Nadler didn’t just downplay the violence; he called it a “myth.”  And the biased media, through its silence, showed its support of that absurd statement.

For days, many Americans had no idea that six blocks of an American city was violently overtaken by a mob and renamed CHAZ, “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.”

Besides the biased media remaining silent, Seattle’s’ Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan denied the reality that citizens were being beaten and held against their will. She also said that CHAZ had a “block party atmosphere” and was experiencing the “Summer of Love.”

She knew she would get away with such nonsensical rhetoric because being a Democrat; the propaganda media machine would step in and back her up. Which of course it did, and more Americans died because of it.

Nadler and Durkan’s insane response to the carnage is understandable because, as soulless members of the left, lies are just part of an overall strategy to hold power.

All of the homes and businesses lost to fire, all of the injuries to the innocent, and the indiscriminate killings are not a consequence of America not having an ethical and honest media. They result from America having an unethical and dishonest propaganda media machine that caters to the Democrat Party.

Mainstream media looked the other way regarding the riots in CHAZ

According to Media Research Center news analyst Nicholas Fondacaro, the mainstream media looked the other way regarding the riots in CHAZ. “It has been days since this nonsense had started and the broadcast networks—ABC, CBS, and NBC—have kept it off the air,” Fondacaro wrote.

And when the President offered assistance to the charred and broken Democratically-run cities, his recommendations were met with hostility. Durkan ridiculed and rebuked the President for saying he was considering sending help and told him to stay away.

With the expansion of social media, even the deceitfully powerful mainstream media couldn’t keep many Americans in the dark. Eventually, many video clips emerged, clearly showing explicit images of smashing windows, burning cars, and rioters running through the streets with bats.

It forced the propaganda media machine to consider the political fallout when Americans realized the riots’ existence. No longer could the riots be reported by the media as peaceful protests.

And without missing a beat, the propaganda machine pivoted, and along with finally acknowledging the riots’ existence, it started blaming them on the President. And why not? Propaganda works.

The reality of the existence of the riots didn’t change. What changed was the propaganda narrative.

Lies and manipulation of the unholy alliance between the Democrat Party and the propaganda media machine

In only a few short weeks, Americans who believed the media propaganda that the riots didn’t exist now unquestioningly accepted the medias’ propaganda position that the riots not only existed but were caused by President Trump.

It is disturbing to think about how so many Americans were so easily manipulated. But what these Americans should be asking themselves now is how did it all change so fast.  How has it come to be that all of the media’s early reports that the protests were peaceful suddenly took a 180-degree turn and were now seen as riots?

And how could the media pin the blame of the riots on a Republican President when 100% of the riots occurred in decades-old Democrat city strongholds, where all the mayors and governors are Democrats?

Americans need to see the abundantly clear evidence that the mainstream media was shoveling out propaganda myths for the Democrat Party and to see that there are no innocent lies with a bias media. In the case of the recent riots, the dishonesty went far beyond politics and became very deadly.

Look at any one of the dozens of wholesale crimes by Democrats over the past four years, and you will be able to trace the promotion, escalation, and coverup directly to the fraudulent propaganda media.

Americans should know by now that if investigated, a majority of what ails America is a direct result of the lies and manipulation of the unholy alliance between the Democrat Party and the propaganda media machine.

FAKE News Has Been Around for Thousands of Years


Many people claim that fake news is just something that Trump made up. They fail to realize that fake news has been a major political tool for thousands of years. The New York Times celebrated Joeseph Stalin as the future and cure for the Great Depression. Their top journalist Duranty even convinced Roosevelt to recognize Russia.

The press has always been a major tool to create revolutions. They were used by the Communists to pull off both the Russian and Chinese Revolutions. The Obama administration appears to have begun this decline in American journalism by not only selling Utopian Economics (Marxism) to the media, but they actively targeted journalists who they viewed as anti-Democratic. There is a pair of 2015 memos from the former Attorney General Eric Holder that reveal how the government used court orders under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to monitor the communications of journalists and news organizations. These memos have surfaced (the documents) but most of the press never made it a major story. Holder’s memos laid out the circumstances for processing FISA applications that target “known media entities” or “known members of the media.” You would think even the New York Times would be screaming – but as long as it applied to the non-liberal press, they were perfectly OK with that.

 

The New York Times journalist Walter Duranty on March 31, 1933, denounced reports of a famine. They were so pro-Communism for they saw Marxism as the way to a new future. It was Duranty who met with Roosevelt to convince him that Communism was working and to encourage his New Deal. The mainstream press in the 1930s were very much touting the Communists. They wanted to hear of Utopia and so reported only what they wanted to believe as they are doing once again.

Perhaps the greatest of all fake news reporters was none other than Cicero (104-43 BC). He was an Optimat and thus was against Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) who was a member of the Populares — the people rather than the Oligarchs. The leader of the Optimates was none other than Cato. It was Plutarch who reported that when a friend of Cicero remarked that the constellation of Lybra was due to rise next day, Cicero snapped – “Yes, by edict.” This is merely an example that the Optimates were constantly complaining about every reform Caesar would make. Because of the fake news of Cicero, even Shakespeare bought into it and painted Julius Caesar as a ruthless dictator. However, when Caesar crossed the Rubicon, the cities all cheered and opened their gates. The Optimates had no support of the people for they were exploiting the Republic since they were the Oligarchs. It was Cato who instigated the Civil War.

Cicero paid not just with his life, but they cut off his hands and nailed his head on the Rostra in the Forum Romanum according to the tradition. According to Cassius Dio, Marc Antony’s wife Fulvia took Cicero’s head, pulled out his tongue, and jabbed it repeatedly with her hairpin in an act of final revenge against Cicero’s power of speech.

 

Beware of the “Fact Checkers”


Re-Posted from Just The Facts Daily By James D. Agresti August 27, 2020

We live in an age in which information is far more accessible than ever before. However, so is misinformation. How can we sort out one from other?

Well, some people who call themselves “fact checkers” claim to have the answer. They say, “Trust us.” But all-too-often, they fail to get even basic facts correct. Let’s look at three prime examples. See if you notice a common thread between them.

Snopes

Late during the Supreme Court nomination hearings for Brett Kavanaugh, several women accused him of sexual assault, and the media began publishing many “facts” about such crimes. These supposedly showed that only a tiny portion of sexual assault allegations are false, giving the clear message that Kavanaugh’s accusers are probably telling the truth.

That’s when a “fact checker” called Snopes stepped in and reported that “the most recent and credible research on this topic suggests that around 5% of rape or sexual assault allegations are false.” Snopes writer Alex Kasprak based this claim mainly on a meta-analysis of seven studies.

However, the meta-analysis doesn’t say this. Instead, it states that “at least 5%” of such accusation are “confirmed false reports” and “potentially many more false report cases” exist. In fact, the meta-analysis lists four different studies of “suspected” false allegations and “found false reporting rates above 40%.”

Surely, Snopes knows that the words “at least 5% and potentially many more” don’t mean “around 5%.”

If that wasn’t enough, the same Snopes article slanders Mississippi state senator Chris McDaniel by claiming that he said “99% of rape allegations from women are false.” McDaniel didn’t say that. He was speaking about accusations dredged up by the “American left” at politically opportune times many years after the alleged incidents occurred. He was not talking about all sex assault cases, and no competent, honest journalist could twist his words in the manner that Snopes did.

PolitiFact

Let’s examine another enlightening example.

In the final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Clinton said that “half of all” illegal immigrants in the U.S. “actually pay federal income tax.”

A Pulitzer Prize-winning fact check organization named PolitiFact looked into Clinton’s claim and reported: “While there is no official figure, experts estimate that about half of all undocumented workers pay federal income taxes, if not more.”

In reality, the polar opposite is true. Data from the IRS, the Social Security Administration, and the Congressional Budget Office show that roughly half of illegal immigrants file federal tax returns, but virtually none of them pay federal income taxes. Instead, they file these returns to claim refundable child tax credits, which give them cash welfare payments for every child they have.

Are we supposed to believe that PolitiFact doesn’t understand that “paying income taxes” is not the same as “filing tax returns to get welfare”?

Washington Post

Now let’s examine a fact checking operation embedded in a media outlet.

Well after Obamacare was signed into law, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that it would reduce the size of the U.S. workforce by about 2.3 million full-time workers. This was roughly three times larger than the previous estimate.

As this negative news spread, the Washington Post’s head fact checker, Glenn Kessler, put a positive spin on it by claiming that this decline in workers “initially would lead to higher wages as employers competed to hire people.”

In direct contradiction this, the same Congressional Budget Office report that Kessler cited says that the Affordable Care Act will cause “reductions in wages or other compensation.” Moreover, it explains that these wage reductions are among the main reasons why Obamacare will cause the workforce to decline. Since Obamacare cuts the money that people earn from working, less people will be willing to work.

Even a child can read a report that say “wages will decline” and know that it doesn’t mean “wages will rise.” Why can’t the Washington Post’s head fact checker or his editor do that?

This is same media outlet that ran a Super Bowl ad praising journalists for empowering the public, helping us make good decisions, and keeping us free.

Conclusion

These cases are all clear as a bell and inexcusable under basic standards of honesty. Worse still, when I brought these blatant falsehoods to the attention of these so-called fact checkers, not one of them made a correction.

So what’s the common thread here? They all mislead in ways that support progressive political agendas. This is not a coincidence. I’ve examined countless fact checks that are rife with deceit, and in nearly every case, it’s the same story: They mangle the truth in ways that advance leftist narratives.

Why would they do this? I can’t read their minds, but this can only boil down to two factors: incompetence and/or dishonesty.

German Government Directing Press to Misrepresent the People


I cannot even say how many emails are coming in from Germany. This is 5 minutes time-lapse of the Berlin march against COVID Lockdowns. You can see these are NOT Nazis or right-wing nut jobs or extremists. The deliberate misrepresenting of what is taking place reveals that not only is the press engaging in fake news, they are deliberating acting as the press did to further the Russian Revolution. This was far too big of an event for the Press to try to downplay. Their entire credibility has now been lost.

Our reliable sources are all saying the same thing. They need these lockdowns and continued extended regulations of masks, social distancings all to prevent uprisings. The financial system is in serious crisis and this in part is causing the migration of capital. These lockdowns are now taking on covert purposes. While in the USA they are trying to overthrow Trump, outside of the USA they are trying to save Socialism. This is becoming very dramatic and the vast majority will lose a fortune because they refuse to look at what is taking place on a global coordinated basis.

We will update the Private Bog in more detail
