Snopes downgrades truth about Beto’s arrests to ‘mostly true’ because a meme got his band’s name wrong

Snopes downgrades truth about Betos arrests to mostly true because a meme got his bands name wrong

Fact checkers are all the rage in the age of fake news. Unfortunately, all of the major fact checkers are left leaning at best, downright progressive at worst. That’s why I make it part of my daily routine to check the checkers to see what they spun today. This latest installment is minor in the whole scheme of things, but it highlights the intense need to protect Democrats whenever possible.

Snopes took on the task of fact checking the following statement:

Beto O’Rourke was in a band called the El Paso Pussycats and was arrested at least twice in the 1990s.

This is true. Beto was arrested twice, which makes him an ideal candidate for the party of lawlessness and disorder. But Snopes, in their certified fact checking wisdom, decided to pick the statement about the arrests that included the name of his band. The statement they chose had the wrong name for the band, using their album name instead. This was enough for them to downgrade the statement from “True” to “Mostly True.”

Not a big deal, right? Actually, it’s bigger than one might think. When people search for Beto and look only for things that are true about him, they will not be shown information about his arrests. The site could have picked literally any other claim about the arrests to fact-check, but had to dig deep to find an internet meme from his failed Senatorial bid last year in order to find one with a statement that included something incorrect in it.

Beto ORourke Arrest

You’ll notice they made sure to mention that both charges were dismissed. The circumstances behind the dismissals seemed to do nothing to negate the crimes he actually committed.

This is just another example of the “fact-checker” running cover for a Democrat they like. The meat of the fact, Beto’s arrests, won’t be found on this site as “True” because they were selective in how they wanted to frame this narrative.

State Department investigation in Clinton email scandal reports 23 violations so far

State Department investigation in Clinton email scandal reports 23 violations so far

Every time someone outside the FBI takes a look at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for her and her staff when she was Secretary of State, they see a situation that was dangerous to the security of the United States. The latest to come to this conclusion is the State Department itself, which has found 23 violations and seven infractions that were allegedly committed.

And that’s just the beginning. The investigation is likely going to continue until the beginning of September.

This information comes through a letter sent to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) who leads the security review, according to Fox News.

“To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents,” Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs, wrote to Grassley. “DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. … This number will likely change as the review progresses.”

Current and former staffers who committed violations or multiple infractions will have them noted in their permanent record. This record is used for many purposes, including determinations on current and future security clearances. The letter did not indicate if criminal charges were possible for anyone, nor did it reveal any names of those being scrutinized.

Opinion

The FBI successfully protected Hillary Clinton and her staff throughout the 2016 election. Though one can argue former FBI Director James Comey helped her lose the election by announcing a continuation into the investigation weeks before election day, the body of actions taken by the FBI demonstrate she was being shielded from prosecution and any investigation that went too deep into her potentially criminal activities.

Thy wanted her to win. They had no intentions of derailing that possibility by doing their jobs.

Now that the State Department is on the case, there may actually be some closure for over the whole scandal. It’s unlikely her detractors will see any real form of justice served as a result, but those involved are less likely now to get out of this unscathed.

Final Thoughts

We may never see Hillary Clinton in jail. We may never see anyone truly punished for putting America’s security interests at risk. But at the very least it appears we’ll get confirmation of wrongdoing, which is better than nothing.

Moderate vs progressive: Democrats on both sides tell the other they can’t beat Trump

Moderate vs progressive Democrats on both sides tell the other they cant beat Trump

Moderate Democrats are busy in the media delivering a message to progressives. Meanwhile, progressives are sending a message to moderates in the same manner. You can occasionally see both types of messages from different authors on the same left-wing publications from one day to the next. The funny part is, they’re both trying to deliver the same message.

Your candidate can’t win.

Moderates are pointing to polls. They’re pointing to logic. They believe Trump is polarizing enough that if the Democrats put up a “moderate” candidate like Joe Biden (though his moderate reputation doesn’t seem to match his radical views lately), they give themselves the best chance of winning the general election by appealing to the middle.

Progressives are pointing to recent history. They say they fell for that sales pitch in 2016 when Hillary Clinton was forced onto them and look how that turned out. Fool me once, they say…

Both have valid points. Biden is currently polling higher than anyone else against Trump, but polls are for suckers (see 2016) and are essentially meaningless at this early stage (see 2015 frontrunners Scott Walker and Jeb Bush). On the flip side, progressives believe their champions have more passion to inspire the middle and possibly even some Republicans who aren’t happy with Trump.

A lot of this internal strife has been prompted by the rise of Senator Elizabeth Warren. Mired in laughable obscurity in the polls following her Native American DNA test debacle and extending through most polls until the last month, the radical progressive has been throwing out socialist policy proposals like candy to the masses. And it’s working. She has now overtaken Senator Bernie Sanders in many polls to be slightly ahead of three of the five current favorites.

A former Clinton pollster is taking Warren seriously and believes she can’t beat the President:

The rise of Elizabeth Warren spells bad news for the Democratic Party

To be victorious in 2020, the Democratic Party must focus on pushing moderate economic policies that do not involve radical wealth taxes, on fixing the health care system without adopting extreme “Medicare for All” policies, and on compromises on immigration. To be sure, I believe in the Democratic primary process and that competing ideas and challenging the status quo is what we should do in a democracy. However, looking ahead to 2020, if the main goal of the party is to beat Trump, we must advocate for center of left policies that result in steady progress for the country, while still appealing to crucial moderates and independents.

The echoes from the other wing of the party are trying to paint Biden as worse than a moderate. They’re not even sure he’s really a Democrats, at least not one by today’s standards.

Beware Joe Biden’s “national unity” campaign: Win or lose, it’s a bad idea

Biden is willing to perform a little pseudo-wokeness on command — and to ditch supposedly cherished and considered principles to make the millennial snowflakes shut up — but he doesn’t pretend any of that matters. Liberals and progressives will have to make their peace with Biden (or not) if he becomes the nominee, which is par for the course in Democratic politics. But any talk about “pushing Biden to the left” or insisting on a progressive platform at next year’s convention is idiotic. That’s all dust in the wind in the general election, when his only pitch will be that he’s a normal adult who can beat Donald Trump.

These are both very different tunes than the ones being whistled during the 2016 Democratic nomination race. While Sanders’s fans were still very passionate, they weren’t really bashing Clinton. It was hard to remain “woke” and still attack the first major female contender for the White House for the sake of an old white guy. The two sides were generally nice to each other, especially compared to what we’ve seen in the press lately. They left the bickering to the Republicans, whether it was Chris Christie hitting Marco Rubio, Marco Rubio hitting Ted Cruz, Ted Cruz hitting John Kasich, or Donald Trump hitting everyone.

Again, look how that turned out. Democrats saw the bickering. They saw that in the end, it worked. Never-Trumpers notwithstanding, the GOP put the bickering aside when the dust settled and rallied behind the MAGA call.

Democrats are hoping for same thing for themselves, which is why the daggers are out now. They’re going to attack each other. Their fans are going to attack each other. Media personalities are going to attack each other. And whoever comes out of it with the nomination will call them all together for a group hug before taking on the President.

Maybe they’re both right. Maybe the progressives are right that a moderate can’t inspire enough people. Maybe the moderates are right that the progressives won’t get the middle. Either way, Trump looks poised to win.

Steve Hilton: Democrats ‘are totally corrupted by foreign government lobbying and cash’

Steve Hilton Democrats are totally corrupted by foreign government lobbying and cash

Anyone American who’s been awake at any point over the last three years has heard of the Russia scandal. Following President Trump’s comments last week signaling a willingness to accept information from foreign governments, the Democrats were apoplectic. But as Steve Hilton noted on Fox News last night, the real scandal actually surrounds them.

Hilton called this segment, “The people versus Democrat hypocrites.” He cited known examples of foreign lobbyists from Mexico, Saudi Arabia, China, and even Russia paying the very Democrats who are beside themselves stirring up the media to attack the President’s comments. But in the battle of his words versus their actions, the hypocrisy is thick. Watching Democrats make accusations about foreign powers influencing him would be like watching Bill Cosby complain about how the President treats women.

It’s imperative for every patriotic American, whether Republican, Democrat, or Independent, to see through the lies being told by the swamp and disseminated through the mainstream media. Their hypocrisy is thick on multiple levels, which is why we encourage our readers to help us spread the truth by donating to our cause.

There truly is corruption in DC by foreign powers, but it’s not happening at the White House despite what the “news” outlets report. Foreign influence runs through Capitol Hill and the Democrats are their favorite targets.
