When lying is the only option

Let no one tell you otherwise, winning an election is not an easy business in America unless you have been Gerrymandered into a comfy district, or have so much campaign funding that you can silence the voice of your opposition. 


In 2018 many Republicans have discovered that even those usual advantages are not enough to feel secure in their desire to be re-elected. What price fame? Our Republican friends have discovered the virtue of the most famous of all things Trump, the Big Lie.


Congressional Republicans took the Big Lie for a test drive in 2017 with Trump’s, “biggest tax cut in history,” (the claim a lie itself) that was for the middle class, and that rich folks, like Trump claimed of himself, would not gain at all.


The tax cut was intended to give back money to Republican donors who had grown disenchanted with their prodigy congress, and to encourage multinational corporations to be more generous with their Citizens United corporation as a person campaign contributions. That all worked out as planned and made for many happy billionaires and CEO’s. Oh, happy day!


But it never worked out for, well, workers…people who actually went to work every day to earn a living. Corporations, for the most part just took their newfound wealth and pocketed it for stock buybacks and corporate bonuses.


Consequently, regular folks were not fooled again by the concept known as, “Trickle Down,” re-named but unchanged from its previous editions, all dedicated to enriching those who did not need enriched. Polling has shown that the Big Lie tax cuts were never popular with a majority of Americans who could not help but notice the pittance of their paycheck changes were easily eaten up by their rising healthcare costs.


One might wonder why, given the failure of that Big Lie, Republicans would bounce back convinced that the problem was the lie was just not BIG enough. Enter Trump, the ultimate Master of the Big Lie, with his Op Ed claiming Democrats, not Republicans, are trying to destroy the Affordable Care Acts’ protection of pre-existing conditions and Medicare itself.


This Big Lie was so oversized it requires voters to forget entirely that in 2017 Republicans came within one vote in the senate of ending the ACA and, with it, pre-existing conditions protections. Not only that, it requires Americans to ignore that the Trump administration and 20 Republican Attorney Generals’ are supporting a lawsuit to end the pre-existing conditions portion of Obamacare.



And if those two forgettings were not enough to expect of the now wary voter, voters have to forget that the current Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, has confessed that his biggest failure has been his inability to reduce Medicare and Social Security. Voters most also forget that the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, just this week, in worrying about the huge deficits created by his tax cuts for donors created, blames Social Security and Medicare for the deficit instead of a tax cut we could not afford, and spending increases beyond the pale.


The end result is that we now have Republicans across the country not only lying about their own record on healthcare (an unpopular record), but their fiscal irresponsibility that has given us huge deficits in the midst of prosperity, an unconscionable dereliction of duty.


In the meantime, as if falsifying their record and intent is not enough, they are lying about the Democrats position on healthcare, one of support of some form of healthcare for all in an affordable way with reduced drug costs for the American people.


This is the gift of Trumpism.

One problem is that MANY like YOU actually BELIEVED Obama's lies at the outset while more objective thinkers didn't believe him from the start.


Not believing - without any evidence - is not being objective.

That is only 9 days worth of Trump lies at an average of over 8 a day. Obama is not president. The guy who lies as much as Obama did in 8 years every 8-9 days is president. Whose head is buried in the sand again?

POLITIFACT


LEAST BIASED

These sources have minimal bias and use very few loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes).  The reporting is factual and usually sourced.  These are the most credible media sources. See all Least Biases sources.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

History

Founded in 2007 by the Tampa Bay TimesPolitiFact.com utilizes reporters and editors from the Times and affiliated media outlets to “fact-check statements by members of Congress, the White House, lobbyists and interest groups”.  They publish original statements and their evaluations on the PolitiFact.com website, and assign each a “Truth-O-Meter” rating. The ratings range from “True” for completely accurate statements to “Pants on Fire” (from the taunt “Liar, liar, pants on fire”) for false and ridiculous claims. In 2018, Politifact became affiliated with the Poynter Institute.

Funded by / Ownership

According to their about page “In 2018, PolitiFact was acquired by the Poynter Institute, a nonprofit school for journalists. While PolitiFact relies on administrative support from the Poynter Institute, it is otherwise financially self-sustaining. PolitiFact receives support from online advertising, as well as revenue generated through content partnerships and from grants.”

Analysis / Bias

In review, Politifact has been called left biased by some right leaning sources. In fact, there is a source called Politifact Bias that is dedicated to pointing out Politifact’s biases. Politifact is also a signatory of the International Fact Checking Network (IFCN), which outlines a code principles for credible fact checkers.

Politifact uses minimal loaded language in their articles and headlines such as this: Trump falsely claims NATO countries owe United States money for defense spending. All information is well sourced to credible media and/or direct statements from experts in the field or the politicians themselves. Fact Check selection leans slightly left as more right wing politicians are currently fact checked. This may be due to bias or the fact that Republicans currently control all branches of government and hence there is more to check. In fact, there was a recent academic study done that shows Politifact employs minimal bias through wording.

Wale, don't whine on your delusion that other people are whining.  It's unbecoming and hypocritical.  As for 'challenging their facts,' I will be glad to just as soon as they present some.  So far, all I've seen is their opinions posted as though they were facts.
