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.

Devin Nunes Says ‘Deep State’ Exists And Is ‘Much Worse Than Even I Thought It Ever Was’

Published

on

For the last several years we’ve been hearing the term “deep state” from folks in the Trump administration as well as from conservative pundits and news organizations in reference to a secret, shadowy group of leftist individuals within the government working against President Trump and his agenda for our country. Some folks have claimed this is all just a tinfoil hat kind of conspiracy theory, but if what Rep. Devin Nunes says is true, then not only is this network of resistance defectors real, it’s far worse than we could have imagined. Here’s more on this story from The Washington Examiner: California Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, spoke to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday about his efforts to raise awareness of bureaucracy within the federal government believed to be undermining President Trump. “One thing that I tell the American people every time that I speak and I go out on the road and I talk to people is that, remember, the deep state here is much worse than even I thought it ever was,” Nunes said in an interview along with Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican, to talk about efforts to renew and reform parts of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Trump’s distrust of people inside the White House and the federal government has intensified since his impeachment and acquittal, and he believes his government is filled with “snakes” he wants to be fired and replaced. Steps are already being taken to weed them out. A network of conservative activists led by Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is helping compile detailed memos of disloyal government officials they want to be fired, while also finding Trump loyalists to replace them, according to Axios. According to Nunes, the…

Former GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain Slams Bernie Sanders; Says ‘Democratic Socialism Doesn’t Exist’

Published

on

Conservative pundit and former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain recently went after Sen. Bernie Sanders, the current top contender for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, stating that Sanders’ version of “Democratic socialism” does not exist. Sanders has had a bit of a rough week after making some rather controversial statements praising some of the “good” done by communist dictator Fidel Castro during his time in Cuba, comments he later doubled down on instead of backing away from. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Bernie Sanders would have you believe that he is not like the socialists who have ruined Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and — going back a few years — all of Eastern Europe,” Cain wrote in an opinion article in the Western Journal. “Oh sure, he agrees with many of their economic ideas, but don’t worry. He’s a democratic socialist, and that’s different.” Cain then said, “Democratic socialism doesn’t exist. That’s because it can’t exist, because socialism can’t take hold in a truly democratic system.” “In order for socialism to ‘work,’ the state has to take control of major industries like health care, energy and manufacturing,” he wrote. “It has to confiscate massive amounts of private wealth. It has to control the means of production and distribution. It has to control wages and prices. It has to monopolize things like higher education.” Sanders has been riding high off victories in New Hampshire and Nevada and has stated that he believes Democratic socialism will lead to political and economic freedom for people in every community. The Vermont senator has accused President Trump and others on the right side of the political spectrum of fear mongering concerning his socialist views and policies, particularly when it comes to the issues of healthcare, the economy, and climate change. The fact that…
