Politi"fact" Caught In A Lie

Will Malven

Yeah, I just can't shut up.  I tried to retire from posting, but the left simply will not allow me to do so.  Having won the election, they have chosen to press their agenda . . . on steroids.  So, I will begin posting opinion pieces once more.

Here's a gem from the Weekly Standard . . . another in a long line of revelations that prove beyond any possible doubt that the MSM was not simply biased in it's coverage of the election, but actively lying to promote Obama and destroy Romney.

First it was the dishonest and demonstrably untrue assertion, by Candy Crowley, DURING THE 2ND DEBATE, that Obama had initially called the attack in Benghazi a terrorist attack.  Her active participation in the supposed two-person debate had the desired effect of throwing Mitt Romney off balance and providing significant, critical cover to his opponent in covering up a glaring foreign policy failure of the Obama Administration which resulted in the rape, death and dismemberment of our ambassador and his staff.

Now the Weekly Standard has revealed that the self-appointed adjudicator of what is fact and what is fictions, Politifact, was indeed in error in one of their assertions--once more contradicting something Mitt Romney and his campaign were claiming (Surprise! Not!)--which gave cover to President Obama and (again) threw the Romney Campaign off balance.

Whoops: PolitiFact's 'Lie of the Year' Turns Out to Be True

12:25 PM, Jan 18, 2013 • By MARK HEMINGWAY

Last month, PolitiFact selected its "Lie of the Year." Given PolitiFact's dubious record of singling out Republicans for lying far more often than Democrats, you probably could have guessed the winner of this particular sweepstakes was a Mitt Romney campaign ad:
"It was a lie told in the critical state of Ohio in the final days of a close campaign -- that Jeep was moving its U.S. production to China. It originated with a conservative blogger, who twisted an accurate news story into a falsehood. Then it picked up steam when the Drudge Report ran with it. Even though Jeep's parent company gave a quick and clear denial, Mitt Romney repeated it and his campaign turned it into a TV ad.

And they stood by the claim, even as the media and the public expressed collective outrage against something so obviously false."

"Public expressed collective outrage"? That's essentially wishcasting on the part of PolitiFact, nor are they accurately representing what Mitt Romney said in the ad. In fact, here's PolitiFact's original "fact check" on the matter:
"[Mitt Romney] Says Barack Obama "sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China" at the cost of American jobs."
Ok. Now here's what the Reuters reported earlier this week:
"Fiat (FIA.MI) and its U.S. unit Chrysler expect to roll out at least 100,000 Jeeps in China when production starts in 2014 as they seek to catch up with rivals in the world's biggest car market. ...

"We expect production of around 100,000 Jeeps per year which is expandable to 200,000," [Chrysler CEO Sergio] Marchionne, who is also CEO of Chrysler, said on the sidelines of a conference, adding production could start in 18 months."

The article continues by pointing out that up till now, almost all of the Jeeps that are sold world-wide are manufactured here in America. You can read the rest of the article at the link in the title.

"WHOOPS!" is right.

Politifact didn't just make an error, they got it profoundly, absolutely wrong . . . not just the substance of the assertion, but the impact such a move would have on employment in America and on our struggling economy.

Once again, Mr. Romney got it right.  Once again, the press provided cover for disastrous news at a time critical to the election.

Yes, it's too late to do anything about the election and because of this continuous effort on the part of our mainstream media to influence elections rather than simply report the news we have been stuck with this incompetent, dishonest, statist for another four years.

Four years to deepen our indebtedness, four years to undermine our Constitution and curtail citizens' rights, four years to promote the destructive, demonstrably failed policies which Democrats and their useful idiot followers continue to espouse and, remarkably, believe in.

If conservatives don't stand up and begin to take a hand in our communications industry (for example by buying some of these MSM outlets and setting standards of accuracy and impartiality) and our education system (by sacrificing their dreams of wealth for a willingness to work for less so they can become educators), if we continue to ignore what the left has been doing in the 60+ years since the Soviets and their communist "fellow-travellers" set their agenda against our nation of liberty and individual rights and responsibilities, then everything, EVERYTHING our Founding Fathers and subsequent generations fought and died for will dwindle away and our nation will become just another footnote in history.

Another interesting experiment in self-government before the despots finally created their utopian slave states.

If you believe in freedom, if you believe in liberty, if you believe in all the things our Founding Fathers worked so hard to leave us . . . and what that "Greatest Generation" fought so desperately to preserve in defeating Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, then the press is your enemy.

The mainstream media is out to destroy all the rights and freedoms we now take for granted.  Why?  Because liberals know better than you what is right for you and if you don't believe that, then just ask them.  Their so arrogant and ignorant they will probably tell you so.

Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
