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.
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.

Beto O’Rourke Drops Bombshell About Connection To Slavery
Where’s the liberal outrage?
In a move that should, if the left were consistent, spell the end of his political aspirations, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke revealed that both he and his wife are descendants of slave owners. Yes, a consistent application of the beliefs of the modern-day progressive should see Beto dropping from the race and spending the rest of his life attempting to atone for the sins of his ancestors. Probably not going to actually happen though. You know, because hypocrisy or something. via The Daily Wire: The failed Texas Senate candidate, who is losing ground in the presidential race, made the revelation in a Medium post, saying that he was recently given documents that revealed his family’s past. “A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote. “There are also records showing that a maternal great-great-great grandfather, Frederick Williams, most likely owned slaves in the 1860s (“most likely,” because we are not certain that the Frederick Williams who is my ancestor and the Frederick Williams who owned slaves are the same person, but there’s enough circumstantial data to lead me to conclude that it’s likely).” “Records also showed that Amy had an ancestor who owned slaves and another who was a member of the Confederate Army,” O’Rourke added. O’Rourke’s claim comes after the media last week tried to tie Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to reparations to the fact that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves. When the media tried to push that narrative they were met with the fact that former President Barack Obama’s ancestors were slave owners. Sen. Kamala Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves. So where is all of the classic liberal outrage over these folks having this sort of bloodline? Surely they would have no problem striking at these kind…
Trump Administration Set To Carry Out Major Crackdown On Asylum Abuse
This is going to make liberals absolutely furious.
The Trump administration has announced some major changes in the country’s current asylum policies that will inevitably lead to a sizable reduction in the number of individuals that are eligible for asylum who are trying to enter the country at the southern border. If you listen closely, you can hear the left already throwing a total fit over this, ready to compare the president to a whole plethora of deplorable fascist world leaders throughout history. via Daily Wire: “The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey,” Fox News reported. In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) highlighted three limited exceptions: (1) an alien who demonstrates that he or she applied for protection from persecution or torture in at least one of the countries through which the alien transited en route to the United States, and the alien received a final judgment denying the alien protection in such country; (2) an alien who demonstrates that he or she satisfies the definition of “victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons” provided in 8 C.F.R. § 214.11; or, (3) an alien who has transited en route to the United States through only a country or countries that were not parties to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol, or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The statement went on to detail that a very small minority of these individuals actually receive asylum, however, a large number of requests burdens the system and undermines its humanitarian purposes. The statement also notes the large number of requests…
