YUGE! New York Times LIED About Right Wing News – Lied To Cover Facebook Purge

Published

on

Right Wing News Editor Jeff Rainforth went over the stories that the New York Times included in their article, Facebook Tackles Rising Threat: Americans Aping Russian Schemes to Deceive.

The first RWN story mentioned, “Opinion: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Was Just Caught Slipping Something To Ford’s Attorney On LIVE TV,” was written on Sept. 27th, the same day as Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The article’s primary source was Chicks on the Right. Their sources appear to be Twitter posts and video.

Here’s what the NYT wrote about the article:

Trending: HUGE Migrant Caravan Barreling Into U.S. Just Met With Savage Surprise From Trump!

“After Dr. Blasey testified, Right Wing News posted several false stories about her — including the suggestion that her lawyers were being bribed by Democrats… What Right Wing News did was part of a shift in the flow of online disinformation, falsehoods meant to mislead and inflame.”

After checking the RWN article, I found nothing “false” about it, as the NYT suggests. The author merely questioned what was in the envelope that Rep. Lee handed to Ford’s attorney. The title of the story had nothing false in it, either.

Here’s what was in the RWN article:

“Why is a sitting Congresswoman even talking to this woman’s attorney let alone handing him an envelope? And what could be in that envelope? Instructions, a thank you letter, and an autographed picture, or maybe what sounds more probable … money? We can only guess at this point and I’m sure with a timid bunch as the Republicans are we won’t know anytime soon.

According to the Congresswoman’s press office, the envelope was simply unopened stationery notes given to counsel for Dr. Ford from women who wanted to enter the hearing room but were not allowed to enter. Why do I find this explanation so hard to believe?”

Questioning something is not “fake news.”

The second RWN story mentioned is “Opinion: Ex-FBI Agent Just Pointed Out HUGE Problem on Kavanaugh Accuser’s Polygraph Test.”

The source of the story is the Western Journal, and their source is Fox News.

The NYT wrote:

“Over the past few months, Right Wing News’ Facebook page has increased its activity, researchers said. During the time that then-Judge Kavanaugh testified in Congress, Right Wing News — and several Facebook pages that mirror it by posting the same content — pushed out numerous articles that questioned the veracity of a lie-detector test that Dr. Blasey had taken and why she had come forward with her accusations.”

Nothing in the RWN story was false. The veracity of the lie detector test Ford took was questioned by the author, and there is nothing wrong with questioning something.

As noted in the title and story, it was an ex-FBI agent who said polygraph tests can be beaten. The author also stated her opinion that Ford’s credibility is “swiss cheese.” With no witnesses corroborating her story, and with the changes to what she could recall, it could definitely be said her testimony regarding Kavanaugh, and even she herself, is not credible.

Nothing false there. It would just depend on who you asked. Ford’s supporters will of course say she is credible, which is their opinion, also.

Both stories were published on my day off so I did not fact check them at the time. Regardless, there is nothing false about them as the NYT suggests.

Honduran Migrant Caravan EXPLODES As it Approaches Border

Amazing how this happens mere weeks before the midterm elections.

Time to put military on full alert and stationed at the border. This is an invasion and needs to be stopped in its tracks AT the border.

Stop the invasion!

From The Gateway Pundit:

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trump’s warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The Mexican government flooded the Mexico-Guatemala border with hundreds of police officers in anticipation of a stand off with the migrants.

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States.

The organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday and it was reported Honduran migrants had splintered off into smaller groups in order to travel undetected as they made their trek to the Mexican border. Reuters reported late Tuesday that some Honduran migrants had headed back to Honduras, however; it appears the caravan has grown as it make its way through Guatemala.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be traveling to Mexico on Friday to discuss plans to stop the caravan.

A caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras has grown to 4,000 and the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, according to U.S. government documents obtained by NBC News.

Part of the caravan, which has split into two groups, is now approaching the Mexico-Guatemala border amidst a surge in border crossings on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Mexico to meet with his counterparts on Friday, where plans to stop the caravan will be a “prominent” topic of discussion, according to a senior State Department official who spoke to reporters on Wednesday.

“I am certain that there will be conversations in Mexico about how we can work together on this issue,” the official said about the caravan. “We are certainly looking for concrete results and for solutions that work for both countries.”

President Trump didn’t even wait until the caravan of Hondurans reached Mexico before issuing a very stern warning to the Honduran president on Tuesday threatening to cut U.S. aid immediately!

The President’s fury continued into late Tuesday evening as he fired off another pair of tweets putting Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador on notice.

Anyone entering illegally will be arrested and detained prior to being sent back to their country, President Trump said.

Democrats Just Announce Sick New Way They Plan To Dominate GOP In Midterms To Regain Control

Yet another perfect example if the tyrannical nature of the democrats. They can’t win by the rules, so they change the rules. Dishonest, lying, cheating, thieves. All that party is.

We must vote in November. Stop the democrats!

From The Daily Wire:

When all else fails, change the system.

Leftist luminaries, who weren’t able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they’ve now, apparently, resorted to “reforming” the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives.

NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the “balance of power,” the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size.

“Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement over the status quo — with the potential to impact all branches of government,” activist Steve Vladick opines for NBC’s “Think” platform.

“[C]hanging the size of the House of Representatives — from its current total of 435 seats to 650 seats, or one for every 500,000 constituents — would make that body far more reflective of the country at large; would dramatically affect presidential elections; and, perhaps alone among all of these proposed reforms, would most be in keeping with the wishes of the Constitution’s drafters,” he continues.

Vladick argues that “changing the size of the House of Representatives would make that body far more reflective of the country at large” by narrowing the size of Congressional districts and limiting district size based on population. In most cases, that would involve halving districts.

But it’s not clear how having more districts with fewer people makes the House more representative, since House members are duly elected and, in most cases, making the districts smaller wouldn’t improve a member’s ability to lunch with every last one of his or her constituents.

What it does do, however, is help the Democrats remain in control of one house of Congress at all times by giving larger cities and their immediate metropolitan areas (where there are bigger populations in smaller areas) more seats. Unless large cities with high populations switch to the GOP in the near future, Democrats would hold the clear majority in the House ad infinitum.

So really, the House would become “more reflective” of … Democratic strongholds.

Tricky, tricky.

Unfortunately for Democrats, none of these proposals — expanding the Senate, packing the Supreme Court, or doubling the size of the House — are likely headed for approval.
