“I just looked at a million photos, the photos of her from the last 30 years,” Ms. Peyton said. “I noticed how much her face changed in the last two years, especially in the last two months — there was such pain visible. I was really conscious of that.”
An opinion article in the New York Times improbably used George Soros as a bludgeon with which to attack Israel and its elected prime minister.
I counted at least nine flaws with the article. It appeared in the Times online under the headline “Israel’s War Against George Soros,” but a more apt headline might have been “The New York Times’ War Against Israel.”
Not as fast as dying traditional media can make it up, of course.
The report is called “The Lies of Donald Trump’s Critics, and How They Shape His Many Personas.”:
Some of these claims are downright fake, entirely fabricated by unreliable or dubious web sites and presented as satire, or otherwise blatantly false. But the rest — some of which have gained significant traction and credibility from otherwise serious people and organizations — provide a fascinating insight into the tactics and preoccupations of the broad anti-Trump movement known as “the Resistance,” whether they were created by critics of the President or merely shared by them.
Take, for example, the claim that Trump was the only world leader at a G7 summit in May not to take notes, based on a photograph posted to Twitter by French President Emannuel Macron. Here Trump was portrayed as unprepared and out of his depth on the world stage, with a “ten-second attention span”. However, the claim was entirely untrue, with other images and video of the meeting showing that Trump did indeed have notes and a pen. Not only that, but the very image used to make the false claim clearly shows two other world leaders sitting with no note-taking paraphernalia. In this case, even the cherry-picked evidence chosen to make the point undermines it.
Or, from the same G7 summit, the claim that Trump was caught on video raising his middle finger to Italian PM Paolo Gentiloni. Here we have Trump, contemptuous of other world leaders, once again risking international incident with his short temper and foul manners.
Except that he didn’t. …
Reality check: Snopes protected itself by saying little about the Big Stars media (New York Times, CNN, Washington Post), former “papers of record,” “trusted news,” and so forth.
Snopes is probably taking the risk of offering any criticism at all because the deranged traditional media have become so irresponsible that Snopes would risk its own reputation defending them. It’s just too obvious that they would say anything to get rid of him so they can settle into the cool mudhole of Correct State News.

The Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center cheered an initiative launched on Monday by Democrat Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s office. Citizens taking public transit are likely to encounter 50 signs to educate them on how to stop Muslims from being harassed.
A popular liberal narrative says that since Donald Trump’s election Muslim women are under attack from racist Islamophobic supporters. The reality is that nearly 100% of reported anti-Muslim hate crimes over the past 8 months have been hoaxes perpetrated by Muslims to prove that Trump has made America a less tolerant nation. A martial arts studio in Iowa is offering free self-defense classes to Muslim women, presumably so they can stop themselves from inventing hate crimes.
The class is taught by some dude who calls himself Master Hamza Omar. Maybe that’s why the class is geared towards Muslim women; it’s taught by a Muslim man. I wonder if he’s teaching them self-defense techniques to use against other Muslim men. You know, how to avoid being stoned to death, how to repel a beheading, and how to slip out of a genital mutilation.
Actually, I’m not even kidding about this, Master Omar teaches these Muslim women how stop someone from snatching a hijab off of their heads.
A reader strolling down the street in Chicago spotted a recruiting poster for “Activist Jobs,” a bit of an oxymoron. “Activism” by implication is volunteer work undertaken because the goal sought by the acts in question is so important to the “activist.” Goal-oriented acts that are compensated are called “work,” not “activism.” But in the photograph below, the two different categories of endeavor are conflated:
The confusion is deliberate and speaks to a larger strategy of the Left, also based on deception.
The Tet offensive was not any type of military victory for the North, but a propaganda victory bestowed upon them by the press. And that is exactly what al Qaeda wants desperately to achieve. There is no military victory al Qaeda can hope for, only a defeat of American will. Their sole aim in driving up the body count is to wear us down to the point that we’ll just give up. It’s the only way they can win.
The President has been saying this for a while now. And al Qaeda has been saying this for a while now too – heck and they’ve even thanked journalists for helping to enhance the jihad. Yet the press never seems to recall this.
The higher global temperatures go, the researchers said, the more likely polar bears are to interact with humans – and possibly attack and eat them.
From Derek Hunter at Townhall:
We live in a world where leftists police speech with Nazi-efficiency. Say anything their twisted liberal minds can distill as racist, classist, homophobic, etc., and no holds are barred. Say the word “crusade” on a college campus – those who don’t flee to the safety of their coloring books and Play-Doh will call the police to report a hate-crime.
The context doesn’t matter, nor does the fact the Crusades were a response to Muslim barbarism. The word is verboten by leftists as anti-Muslim hate-speech. Yet, jihad can mean anything, and thinking it may mean one particular thing, especially when uttered by someone with a radical anti-American ideology, is the highest form of bigotry.
Meanwhile, President Trump delivered a passionate speech defending western civilization and its accomplishments, which have benefited all mankind, and progressives proclaimed it problematic. More.
Reality check: If it is safe to say we do not want to live in a world run by progressives but we do not speak up and vote against it, we are cowards who deserve our fate.

Liberal, British writer J. K. Rowling is no stranger to circulating her open borders narrative to her 10.9 million Twitter followers. Last week, she shared an article on Twitter which implied that we have a problem with White, right wing terrorism in the UK. Included in her tweet, Rowling copied the title of the Independent’s article, and wrote: “One in three terror suspects in UK now white amid rise in far-right extremism.”
She’s good at writing fiction, it’s said.
You can set your watch to it. In the wake of very jihad terror attack, no matter how heinous and horrifying, in come the washerwomen with buckets of dirty water working double time to scrub and censor the motive from the attack. Once the stage is sufficiently washed and prepped, in march the jihadis in the information battle-space, silver-tongued snakes selling Islam-is-peace snake oil to an over-eager media audience braying for more.
‘Army of activists’ mobilize in wake of attempted ‘character assassination’ of Sean Hannity.
The articles, all of which had unabashedly sassy headlines, started with ‘What happens to the earth now,’ followed by seven other articles offering proof climate change is real and happening now.
As any confidence man will tell you, a good swindle involves convincing people that their illusions are real. They will meet you halfway, and your suggestion does not quite meet the level of a legal promise, so you can go free, unless the law finds that you made enough of an assurance that your scam was manipulative.
In the case of diversity, the promises were made, albeit by a mixture of media, politicians, academia and mass culture voices. We were told that we could avoid becoming Hitler, that people from different groups would live in peace and harmony, that our culture would be enriched, and that the days of race riots and ethnic violence were behind us.
The reality of the situation could not be much worse.
