PolitiFact – The Biggest Internet Fraud – Is Rewriting Its Own History
(Breitbart) Thursday, the fraudulent fact-check site PolitiFact awarded its “lie of the Year” to Barack Obama for his, “If you like your insurance you can keep your insurance” ObamaCare sales con. But in order to do so, PolitiFact had to rewrite its own history after they spent three years aiding and abetting Obama by spreading this exact same lie:
[I]n an October 2008 column — just before the election — PolitiFact actually rated Obama’s promise as “true.” It said at the time: “Obama is accurately describing his health care plan here. He advocates a program that seeks to build on the current system, rather than dismantling it and starting over.”
In other words, it rated him on the basis of whether he was accurately stating his own campaign promise, a hurdle no politician could fail to clear.
In an August 2009 column, PolitiFact did pull back, noting: “It’s not realistic for Obama to make blanket statements that ‘you’ will be able to ‘keep your health care plan.’”
Since Obama was making just that blanket claim, it ought to have been rated “false,” but PolitiFact decided against that. “[O]ne of the points of reform is to change the way health care works right now. So we rate Obama’s statement Half True,” it ruled. Rather than hold Obama to account, it moved the goalposts instead.
This wasn’t the worst of it. As Higgins notes, PolitiFact not only rewrote the definition of “fact” to rate Obama’s obvious lies as true, but twice during the 2012 election, the phony fact-check site accused of Mitt Romney of lying with his accurate claim that “up to 20 million Americans could lose their insurance under ObamaCare.”
Romney’s statement was based on analysis by the Congressional Budget Office.
One of those “false” ratings for Romney came in June of 2012, the same month PolitiFact awarded Obama a “half true” for repeating what PolitiFact now acknowledges was the “lie of the year.”
PolitiFact is one of the biggest frauds on the Internet and the biggest in the mainstream media. As we can see with PolitiFact’s ongoing ObamaCare fraud, PolitiFact’s entire purpose is to protect Democrats and their agenda by spinning lies into truth and truth into lies. The media love PolitiFact because the phony fact-checks give the media a false sheen of objectivity.
On the most consequential domestic policy programs passed by our government in a decade, the charlatans at PolitiFact not only helped spread what they knew was a lie; they then awarded their own lie “lie of the year.”
Shameless and dangerous.

Michelle Reacts To Obama And Danish Prime Minister ‘Selfies’ During Mandela Memorial
(Beck) After delivering a very egotistical speech at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in Johannesburg, South Africa earlier today, President Obama was caught taking ‘selfies’ in the stands with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. First Lady Michelle Obama, who was stoically sitting next to the group, did not participate.
You know the Obama Administration is already working on a way to spin the incident, which promoted Stu to question what the excuse would be this time.
Maybe he can blame the Dutch Prime Minister for taking the picture. Or they can claim they were really watching a video of Mandela on the phone.

So, everything Obama gets involved in relies on completely fake messaging…
Fake Sign Language Interpreter Used At Nelson Mandela Memorial
(Yahoo) Johannesburg – While millions across the globe were inspired and moved by speeches made at former President Nelson Mandela’s memorial service on Tuesday, the international deaf community expressed outrage over what they say was a fake sign language interpreter.
According to a report on Australian site, SBS News, deaf South African and board member of the World Federation of the Deaf Youth Section Braam Jordaan said the interpreter was simply making up his own signs.
“The structure of his hand, facial expressions and the body movements did not follow what the speaker was saying,” Jordaan was quoted as saying. “What happened at the memorial service is truly disgraceful thing to see – it should not happen at all.”
Jordaan said the interpreter seemed to simply be making up his own hand movements.
A representative for the World Association of Sign Language Interpreters, Sheena Walters also told SBS the hand movements the interpreter was using was not recognisable as any type of sign language:
“Most sign languages across the world share a similar structure and pattern and this person seems to be making a lot of repetitive signs and isn’t displaying the usual facial expression or structure of sign language that you would normally see.”
President Barack Obama waves standing next to the sign language interpreter after making his speech.
As the memorial service for the global icon and leader, affectionately known as Madiba, was streamed across nearly every news channel across the world, more and more members of the deaf community took to social media site Twitter to express their anger:
“ANC-linked interpreter on the stage with dep president of ANC is signing rubbish. He cannot sign. Please get him off,” tweeted Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen, the first deaf woman elected to South African Parliament.
While South African sign language interpreter, Francois Deysel tweeted that the interpreter was “making a mockery of our profession.”
“He was singing rubbish the whole time, meaning he was just throwing his hands around. #SignLanguage” tweeted RIP Mandela.

Treasury recouped a total of $39 billion from their original GM bailout of $49.5 billion, losing just over $10 billion on the initiative.

Man Leaps To His Death At Shopping Mall After Girlfriend Insists On More Shopping
(Breitbart) [China] A 38-year-old man leaped to his death after an argument with his girlfriend who insisted they continue shopping. CCTV captured Tao Hsiao and his girlfriend in a mall in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, east China where they had reportedly been shopping for five hours or so before he hit his limit.
Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting one more store where there was a sale on shoes.
An eyewitness said: “He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument.”
The argument continued until Hsiao threw the bags on the floor and himself over the balcony, dropping seven stories to his death and smashing Christmas decorations on the way down. He was killed on impact.
A spokesman for the mall said: “His body was removed fairly quickly. He actually landed on one of the stalls below and then fell to the floor so although the store was damaged it meant he didn’t hit anybody.
“This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people.”
It’s amazing how ‘tolerant’ the Left can be when their dictator’s running the show. Like you, I’ve heard many claim, “Obama could put puppies in a blender and it would kick-start the next global trend.” Hence, the illustration above.
No doubt if Obama asked mom’s to throw their babies in microwaves, 12% of his worshipers would ask, “For how long?”…but I’ll refrain from illustrating that scenario.

But for a man who completely understands the importance of – and whose only memorable ‘legacy’ will be – a symbol [just like Hitler], it’s rather fitting that Obama would

Obama To Sign Rule Allowing Wind Farms To Kill Bald Eagles
(Breitbart) The Obama administration is about to approve a rule that will ensure the death of golden and bald eagles for the next 30 more years.
Hundreds of thousands of birds die each year flying into the deadly turbine blades atop the soaring towers that compose wind farms. The rule that Obama is signing will give wind farms thirty year permits for the “non purposeful take of eagles-that is where the take is associated with but not the purpose of, the activity.’’ The take of eagles is also a euphemism for the slaughter of them.
The wind farms fulfill Obama’s ambitious pursuit of developing renewable energy sources. Unfortunately, some bird species being destroyed by the turbines are not renewable. As a result, Obama finds himself wedged between the ire of opposing green groups. In July, wildlife groups met with administration officials and lobbied against the granting of 30 year permits for energy companies that own the wind farms.
And since windmills exist solely to allow liberals to wallow in their sanctimonious idiocy, the blades will keep chopping away:

The Mythical ‘War On Christmas’ In Texas Schools
Does anyone really believe that Texas schools are overrun with militant atheist teachers and principals trying to destroy Christmas? (snip) “[…] groups like Texas Values trot out the familiar nonsense about a “war on Christmas” every year. They hope to scare money out of the pockets and purses of their gullible supporters. But this year they’re also hoping their “defense” of Christmas will hide their failure to undermine the science education of millions of Texas students. (snip) It turns out that the group prefers to scare its members with myths and fantasies rather than work on serious issues.”

Texas Passes ‘Merry Christmas Bill’
For years, Fox News has been warning viewers of a War on Christmas, […] covering it more than the actual wars going on.
Linda Bridges, president of the Texas branch of the American Federation of Teachers, told KTBC that she believed there were more important issues for the legislature to be working on.
The Atheist Experience (via Raw Story) May 21, 2013
Texas ‘Merry Christmas Bill’ Is ‘a Bunch Of Bullsh*t’
“[…] the law is a way for Christian lawmakers to burrow further into their illusion of constant persecution and win the votes of “people who don’t live in Austin. […] The “Merry Christmas Bill sounds like the usual ‘War on Christmas’ nonsense. […] As far as I can tell, nobody has ever actually stopped saying ‘Merry Christmas’ because they’re afraid to get sued […] does anybody sue anyone for saying ‘Merry Christmas?’ Because I think that’s a bunch of bullish*t.”
And this – ignorance – is exactly what causes unquestioning low-information voters to put Communists such as Obama ‘in charge’ of the once ‘United’ States. This ignorance is exactly why Texas ‘had’ to pass a law that ‘permitted’ the celebration of Christmas.
And yet some would argue that weak-kneed Christians are doing it to themselves.” Hard to disagree when politically correct organizations like Campus Crusade for Christ remove ‘Christ’ from their name: HERE
Now, on with the story…
Texas School Bans Christmas Trees, Colors Red And Green
(Fox) An elementary school in Frisco, Texas is believed to be the first in the state to violate “The Merry Christmas Law” after they banned Christmas trees and the colors red & green from an upcoming “winter” party.
Boys and girls who attend the Nichols Elementary School “Winter Party” will not be able to make any reference to Christmas or any other religious holiday. Christmas trees are also banned – along with the colors red and green.
The rules were sent to parents in an email from the school’s PTA and first reported on by MyFoxDFW.com.
This is what it’s come to, America. You’ve got college-educated terrified to put a toy elf on the shelf because she might get sued by the ACLU or some other left wing anti-Christmas group.
Ironically, the school is located in the district of state Rep. Pat Fallon, the author of a bill signed into law in June that codifies the fact that students and staff are permitted to discuss winter holidays as they please.
Fallon tells me he was alerted by an angry parent.
“When Gov. Perry signed ‘The Merry Christmas Bill,’ clearly that didn’t solve the issue,” he said. “The battle rages on. It’s distressing.”
The school district released a statement to MyFoxDFW.comnoting:
“The school was unaware of this and it was not an official PTA correspondence either. There have never been any limitations on what students wear, what they bring to share with their classmates on party days … what greetings people exchange with each other.”
But Fallon said contrary to the school district’s statement, the ban remains in place. He also said he spoke to the superintendent and learned that the school district was letting principals set their own policies regarding holiday celebrations.
“That leads to confusion, misinterpretation and flaunting of the law,” he said.
Fallon said the ban on Christmas trees and traditional holiday colors remains in place and calls it “unnecessary, inappropriate, and quite frankly draconian in nature.”
However, after a meeting between the principal and the PTA, the school decided to keep the draconian rules in place.
“She [the principal] said they didn’t want to offend any families and since each family donates money they feel this is the best policy,” read an email sent to the lawmaker.
What about all the families who might be offended by not being able to call Christmas, Christmas?
“I feel like my calling in life is to protect the students, parents and teachers,” Fallon said. “They have a constitutional right to express themselves. They have freedom of religion.”
Fallon fired off a letter to every school official in the district, reminding them of their yuletide rights under the law.
“Texas law clearly permits Christmas-themed celebrations, events and displays,” Fallon wrote. “The district may also display scenes or symbols with traditional winter holidays (e.g. nativity scenes, Christmas trees, menorahs, etc.)”
The lawmaker said he was shocked at the number of calls his office has received from nervous teachers and principals – wondering what they could and could not do.
“One teacher wanted to do ‘Elf on a Shelf’ and she thought she would get in trouble,” Fallon told me.
So this is what it’s come to, America. You’ve got college-educated teacher terrified to put a toy elf on the shelf because she might get sued by the ACLU or some other left wing anti-Christmas group.
