The fake “fact checker” at the Washington Post tried — but utterly failed — to brand Sen. Tim Scott as a liar over the senator’s claim that his grandfather once picked cotton.

Kessler spent hundreds of words attempting to massage his story to make Scott look like a liar to his readers, only to end the piece refusing to state his accusation outright at the end.

This lying “fact checker” noted that the senator has often noted that his grandfather picked cotton when he was young, and here he was, in only two generations, has taken his place as a U.S. Senator.

In his garbage April 23 screed, Kessler said, “For Scott, the only Black Republican in the Senate, it’s the story of his grandfather, Artis Ware, who left school at an early age to pick cotton and, according to Scott, never learned to read and write. The tale of his grandfather fits in with a narrative of Scott moving up from humble circumstances to reach a position of political power in the U.S. Senate.”

Still, Kessler tried to throw shade on the senator’s claims by adding, “But Scott separately has acknowledged that his great-great-grandfather, Lawrence Ware, once owned 900 acres in South Carolina.”

Kessler then went into several hundred words to trace the history of Sen. Scott’s grandfather’s history. Word after word was meant to show that Scott’s grandfather did rather well with his life by the time he died. This was Kessler’s attempt to “prove” that Scott was lying about his grandfather’s hardscrrabble origin.

But after those hundreds of words, Kessler ended up admitting that he did not feel like assigning his “Pinocchio test” to Scott’s claims. Why? Because despite all the shade Kessler threw at Scott, the TRUTH is that Scott’s grandfather did pick cotton when he was a young man and before he rose to success.

In other words, Scott is telling the truth. He is the great grandson of a man who picked cotton when he was young and, yes, Scott has risen from those humble beginnings to become a U.S. Senator!

Despite Kessler’s attempt to make Scott seem like a liar, Scott has been telling the truth all along. And Glenn Kessler knows it.

Biden’s ‘Day of Prayer’ Remarks Never Mentioned God, But It DID Talk of ‘Racial Justice’ and ‘Climate Change’

Devout Catholic….

Joe Biden put out his first presidential proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, but it seems he forgot to mention anything about God, or religion… well, except for the left’s religions of climate change and racial justice. Biden issued his proclamation on Thursday to supposedly address the power of prayer. But instead of an ode to God, Christianity or even religion in general, Biden paid homage to the left’s fake religions and ignored real religions. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation began. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Biden added that the First Amendment protects “the rights of free speech and religious liberty,” which protects the right of all Americans to pray. “These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations,” the proclamation continued. Celebrating the “healing balm of prayer,” Biden added, “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.” Biden did not mention the words God, Jesus, or any specific religious concepts other than the general point of “prayer.” This is in stark contrast to every president before him. Even Barack Obama mentioned God. Check…

Biden’s Jobs Report Crashes to Worst Miss in History, Then He Blames Trump

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump.

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump even as he claims nothing is wrong at all. Economists had predicted almost a million new jobs for this past period, but on Friday Biden’s latest report came in at only 266,000 new jobs. This is a huge gap, and the worst miss of jobs predictions in history. Not only did Biden’s numbers come in at a massive miss of the expected new jobs, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%. https://twitter.com/axios/status/1390648052097163271 One of Biden’s problems us that the Democrats keep handing out free cash to the unemployed which has convinced them that they don’t even need to go look for a job. https://twitter.com/cvpayne/status/1390648212864839684 Not only was this latest period a big miss, but the last one was also downgraded from the original estimate of 916,000 down to 770,000. When the news broke, Biden initially said everything was juuuust fine. “There is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” Biden said on Friday. But on the other hand, he tried to blame Trump, saying, “When we came in, we inherited a year of profound economic crisis and mismanagement on the virus.” Lies. The fact is, the report showed unemployment rose in April for the first time since April 2020, when the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic first hit the nation.
