Media Matters Publishes Hit Piece on Largest Facebook Tea Party Group

It is no doubt designed to further inflame the increasingly violent left.

Published

on

On Friday, the George Soros-backed Media Matters published a hit piece against Dr. Kelli Ward, a GOP candidate running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.  Although the piece was clearly intended to paint Ward as a racist conspiracy theorist, it went even further, attacking her husband, administrators and moderators of the largest Tea Party group on Facebook, smearing them all as racists and conspiracy theorists.

Natalie Martinez, the Media Matters propagandist who published the piece, wrote several paragraphs targeting posts made by the moderators, cherry-picking a tiny handful of posts out of the many thousands present on the group, going back, in some cases, three years.

Naturally, Martinez provided absolutely no context for any of the posts and from what we could glean, did not even attempt to contact any of the moderators for comment or any information that might shed light on the posts.

She further smeared Pamela Geller, Jack Posobiec, Patrick Howley of Big League Politics and Eliyokim Cohen along with congressional candidates Danny Tarkanian, Daniel Crenshaw, Matt Rosendale, Patrick Morrisey, Chris McDaniel, and Rep. Jim Renacci, R-OH.

Additionally, she breathlessly stated that Fox News analyst Jan Morgan “has also promoted Kelli Ward’s campaign events” in the group.

And she also smeared the more than 100,000 supporters of the group by association.

We reached out to the moderators of the group smeared by Martinez for comment.

Mike Michaels, the brainchild behind the popular group, indicated that he isn’t about to back down in light of the Media Matters attacks.

“Wait until we do a Kelli Ward day,” he said.  “They will really flip out.”

Lori Saxon, one of those smeared by Martinez, called the Media Matters article a “hatchet job.”

“I could see going after politicians but I’m just an average citizen who got lucky building the big Deplorables thanks to Hillary,” she said.

Back in the 1990s, she added, Media Matters’ David Brock “wrote books and articles in support of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and interviewed me many times because I was [on] the last panel of women” during the contentious Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings.  This, she said, was before Brock became a radical leftist.

I have shared articles on the Seth Rich Murder and about Pizza Gate. I did not realize that I was so important that David Brock continues to stalk me and my fellow Tea Party admins,” she added.

Saxon further said she believes Media Matters is concerned about the upcoming Supreme Court nomination and the brewing “red wave” in the 2018 midterm elections.

In short, it’s typical Media Matters propaganda, no doubt designed to further inflame the increasingly violent left.

Obama Remarks on GOP Voting Law Gets Fierce Rebuke

The former President was simply WRONG, and he got called out for it.

Published

on

Of all the large narratives still churning in the political ether these days, the fight for electoral security continues to produce some of the most heated narratives that we’ve seen.

Republican lawmakers around the nation have been working to tighten voting regulations across the board after the security of the 2020 election became a hot topic of conversation.   They claim that voter fraud is an issue that could affect any and all elections for years to come, and their hope it to get out ahead of that.

The Democrats, however, have suggested that this electoral integrity stance is merely a ploy to disenfranchise voters in predominately Democratic districts, alleging that voter fraud is not a prevalent enough issue for this response.

This week, former President Barack Obama weighed in on the debate, and his comments are causing him to take serious heat.

Former President Barack Obama slammed Republicans as “systematically” trying to prevent Americans from voting in a campaign speech for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.

“All across the country, Democrats are trying to make it easier to vote, not make it harder to vote, and push back on Republicans who are trying to systematically prevent ordinary citizens from making their voices heard,” Obama said Saturday in Richmond.

“You have to ask yourself, why is it Republicans don’t want you to vote?” he asked.

Glenn Youngkin, the candidate running against McAuliffe, fired back at the former Commander in Chief through a spokesperson.

“Glenn has addressed this multiple times before Obama came to Virginia to bail Terry out, but instead of writing a story about the former President’s false statements, the press is indulging Terry’s fantasies and lies because he can’t run on his failed record and radical vision for the future,” Youngkin spokesperson Christian Martinez told Fox News.

Obama’s office did not immediately respond to a request for clarification on his comments.

Biden Administration Halts Release of JFK Files

Their excuse wasn’t sitting well with some in Congress, however.

Published

on

We cannot examine the modern day conspiracy theory culture in America without giving credit to perhaps the most pervasive and permeating conspiracy-laden event of the last century:  The death of US President John F. Kennedy.

Kennedy, who was shot and killed in his motorcade, and whose alleged killer was then killed during a perp walk, was one of the most influential Presidents of his day, and his disdain for parts of the American government itself has led many to believe that he may have been taken out by forces within the political or intelligence spheres.

Now, some 57 years later, the Biden administration is still interested in keeping some aspects of the event under wraps, and it’s irking Americans who’ve long clamored for transparency. 

Secret files concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy will not be released to the public by next week after all. The national archivist asked for more time to review them, White House officials announced, blaming the delay in part on the pandemic, CBS reports. President Biden issued a statement calling postponement “necessary to protect against identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations.” The files will instead be released in two installments, per the Washington Post.

Not everyone was buying it, however.

The editor of JFKFacts.org, who once sued the CIA for assassination documents, said it’s clear the Biden administration isn’t going to follow the law. Calling Biden’s statement a “COVID dog ate my homework” excuse, Jefferson Morley said Congress should intervene. A group of House members wrote Biden this month calling on him to release the 520 documents that are still secret and 15,834 others that have been made public but include redactions. “Excessive secrecy surrounding President Kennedy’s assassination continues to inspire doubt in the minds of the American public and has a profound impact on the people’s trust in their government,” they wrote.

Theories on who was ultimately responsible for the death of JFK vary wildly, with everyone from the CIA to a Cuban hit squad being pondered as possible perpetrators.
