Media Matters Publishes Hit Piece on Largest Facebook Tea Party Group

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

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.

Jobless Claims Fall Below A Million, Breaking 20-Week Streak

Published

on

We have more excellent news on the economic front as the number of new applications received for unemployment benefits has dropped to 963,000, according to reports published by the Labor Department. This breaks the streak of 20 consecutive weeks that saw those figures above a million. Economists had projected this week’s numbers would be somewhere around 1.1 million. This is fantastic. Our nation is finally starting to recover a bit from the coronavirus, though you’d never guess that was the case by the way the mainstream media is covering the story. Here’s more information from The Washington Examiner: The total number of people claiming jobless benefits in all programs for the week ending July 25 was 28.3 million, a decrease of over 3 million from the previous week. For comparison, there were 1.7 million people claiming benefits for all programs in the same week in 2019. While jobless claims remain at historic highs, Mark Hamrick, a senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com, noted that they have fallen in places particularly affected by the coronavirus. Florida saw a drop of over 23,000 in initial claims between the week ending Aug. 8 and the week prior. Georgia and Texas saw decreases of over 11,000 each over the same time period. Back in March, toward the end of the month, jobless numbers hit a staggering 6.9 million. Those numbers began to drop in May with the reopening of the economy in many states around the country, but hadn’t dropped below a million until now. The recovery has been a bit slow paced, but that’s to be expected. Most places around the nation have been very cautious about reopening after the shutdowns earlier this year. It only makes sense that as things happen in phases, slowly over time, so too would the economic recovery. Here’s…

President Trump Says Democrats Mail-In Ballot Drive Is Holding Up COVID Stimulus Package

Published

on

President Trump has come out and stated on Thursday that the reason the coronavirus relief package has been delayed in negotiations on Capitol Hill is due to the fact that Democrats are continuing to push for mail-in voting as part of their wish list, which he says would cause “the greatest fraud in history.” And you know what, he’s probably right. Just think about how easy it would be to manipulate voting results with mail-in ballots. Many folks wouldn’t even participate in the election if they had to do that. It would definitely provide a tremendous boost to the Democratic Party. Trump conducted an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business Thursday morning, saying that negotiations over the fourth stimulus relief package were being held up by this very issue. Here’s more from Fox News: “It’s their fault,” Trump said. “They want $3.5 billion for something that’s fraudulent … for the mail-in votes, universal mail-in ballots. They want $25 billion for the post office. They need that money so it can work and they can take these millions and millions of ballots.” Trump added: “But if they don’t get those two items, then they can’t have mail-in ballots.” The president went on to slam the practice, saying that ballots have been “sent to dogs” and “dead people,” citing states like Virginia, where he said more than “500,000 phony ballot applications were sent to voters,” and in New York, where mail-in voting caused a weekslong delay in announcing results for some races in the state’s primary. “How would you like to have $3.5 billion for mail-in voting? You know how much money that is? They want $25 billion for the post office because the post office is going to have to go to town to get these ridiculous ballots in,” Trump…
