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.

I went to a meeting yesterday with a representative of one of our state senators.  Only 12 people showed up, including me.  Except for two others, I wanted to ask the rest if CNN was the only place where they got their news. They were just spouting all the rediculous  talking points you hear over and over on the MSM.  I brought up some facts about how the people voted for banning partial birth abortion in our state, it passed both houses but a federal judge overruled on it.  I stated we needed to fire these federal judges and oh boy, did I get a reaction.  You just cannot fix stupidity.  I left feeling very discouraged and disgusted.

Hang in there.  You done good  ;o)

Thanks, I needed that.  Today I called McCaskill to ask that she vote to repeal obamacare ( I got a brochure sent out to everyone asking them to call her)  and when I asked if she was going to vote to do that, was told that "not until they come up with something better" then I was asked what plan I would suggest............that made me mad and I just said that she (the female on the phone)  knew damned well I could not answer that and that McCaskill was not going to vote to repeal it because she was a democrat.

Norma... If anyone asks you again... what plan you have to replace Obama Care with...  Tell them... Let the Private Sector and free market operate to provide our medical care.. My plan is the 'Free Market Plan'... The same plan our fathers and mothers used.

You could call McCaskill back and tell her... you want her to support the 'Free Market' plan for Medical Care... The same plan our founders and parents used.  The plan, that worked for over 250yrs in America... the plan we had before Obama Care replaced our Doctors, tripled our insurance premiums and deductibles, and destroyed our existing insurance plans...Tell McCaskill you want that Medical plan.

Repeal and please don't replace... no more government plans we can't afford them... their plan is killing Americans.

Thank you Col,, I am going to do that, I will never give up.  

Norma, Every voice for truth matters. It has to.

Thanks, it sure gets tiresome, though.

Thanks for your faithful effort Norma... next time take a dozen or so with you.  Most of the issues involving a State Senator are local... but there is the issue of State's sovereignty and the 9th and 10th Amendments, which they have ignored for to long.

Thanks, if I can find a dozen people the next time, I surely will ask them to go with me.  Sadly, too many people don't care. All of the people there were older, like me, and are probably retired and democrats as their parents and grandparents were.  This is true of my family that has been here since 1850.  Being a democrat is like a 'tradition" in some places and they are stuck to the idea that republicans are the wealthy people and don't care about them. Fortunately, I have lived in 8 different states, worked in all of them, have a bachelor's degree in nursing and like to think I can reason.  The people I trust the most are people who will admit they are wrong when shown that they are.  I asked a preacher one time that since God created our brains, why do men think they are smarter than God?  I ask God for guidance and He never fails.

Democrats try new tactic to get Trump's tax returns
State legislators across the country are debating new measures that would require candidates running for president to publicly disclose their tax returns to qualify for the ballot.
The measures are aimed at President Trump, who became the first White House candidate in recent times refuse to release his tax documents to the public.

Democrats, incensed by Trump’s false claims of being prevented from releasing the documents because of an IRS audit, see the legislation on the state level as a way to force the president’s hand when he seeks reelection in 2020.

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.
