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.

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
