Image result for national debt in trump's first month went down by $12 billion

When so-called “fact-checkers” begin to politicize their arguments against the right, you can bet things are getting bad, but that’s the world in which we are currently living.

PolitiFact, one of the so-called fact-checking websites that rates the accuracy of claims made by politicians and elected officials, has entered the realm of spreading false information by labeling as mostly false something President Donald Trump said that was accurate.

The website decided to fact-check one of Trump’s tweets about the national debt.

He said: “The media has not reported that the national debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo.”


The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo.


The website concluded that while “the numbers check out,” the tweet was “mostly false.” What?

The website then suggested that the drop was not significant because the national debt fluctuates. Ultimately the debt accumulation will return, so Trump’s claim is false.

The facts are there and they check out. From a fact-checking standpoint, it would seem there is nothing wrong with what Trump said. Enter left-wing radicals who manipulate the truth to fit their agenda.

Incidents like this turn fact-checking into a joke. PolitiFact and other so-called fact-checkers shouldn’t be surprised when they get tossed to the wayside because they are no more believable than fake news outlets.

The left is already suffering from a lack of public trust. From misleading polls about the presidential election to liberal news outlets deliberately publishing false information about the president, it’s doing itself no favors by buying into this “mostly false” story about Trump.

To make things worse, the mainstream media won’t report this misleading information because it doesn’t support their anti-Trump narrative.

Since they won’t cover it, we will, because the public needs to know how the left works to discredit Trump.

yup   you got it right on this one

These days, just about everything on left wing sites are lies.

Really what I have been seeing for the last 2 or 3 decades is this:  When Democrats accuse someone of doing something or being a whatever villain or hate full, or Not-Politically correct, It just means that is what democrats are doing and a the drivel they spew is just COVERUP for what they are actually guilty of !!! 

Exactly, great observation.

nobody believes them   NOBODY

Michael, sadly there are many left wing nut jobs that have NO idea what is going on in life except for the BS that John told Henry and Henry told Lori and Lori told Gertrude and on and on.Now imagine that the info was a lie from the start. Then imagine what the info was by the time it reached Gertrude or anyone else.

Most Democrats have to lie b/c most everything they stand for is based on a lie and plain ole immaturity.

Without lying and hypocrisy the Left would have no platform at all.

They don't have one now, the democraps are dead! They called Donald Trump a clown and he turned them into jackasses!

When the left has no legitimate argument the resort to DISSIMULATION... false and dubious use of the facts.. too confuse and distort the truth... too, create a false narrative.  The Left is working to make the TRUTH so difficult to discover, that  most people will give up and choose to believe their IDEOLOGY, rather than look for the facts and the Truth.  When all one has is their false ideology, one is left with no other venue too defend their position... than... to dissimulate... create a false narrative to cover up their lies.

Look, The Left has one narative. When ALL else fails, which is normal. Everyone is a Racist, Homophobe, Facist or whatever else they can think of that shuts down conversation.

Until  we get over being called Racist and just accept the fact they are going to use ALL of those and just tell them to get screwed, they will always use that. Being called a Racist or anything else by these fools anymore, means NOTHING b/c they use it for everything and everyone that disagree's with them.

The left generally believes that anyone who does not agree with them is by virtue of this fact a "right-wing bigot", because they conflate right-wing opinions with bigotry. Right-wing and bigot have for them become synonymous. But this not only misconstrues the real meaning of bigotry, it also demonstrates how bigoted they are in the real sense of the word. A bigot is actually defined as a person whose opinions cannot be changed with reference to evidence or solid argument; it denotes inflexibility of opinion and the manner in which an opinion is held, not the position of that opinion on the political spectrum. The Left currently demonstrates far more bigotry both in their intolerance of opinions different to their own (and their attempt to suppress the expression of such opinions), as they show the inflexibility and imperviousness to evidence that is the foundation of bigotry in the true sense of the word.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
