The Hacks at Politifact

Posted · Add Comment

The self-proclaimed fact-checkers at Politifact have really had a banner day today, publishing two flawed fact-checks that betray their partisan leanings. The hacks at Politifact aren’t even trying anymore. First, reporter Emma Hinchliffe and her editor Matt Schwartz go out of their way to find a way to cast doubt on the statement by Texas […]

Chuck Schumer is right on the Iran Deal

As a general rule, it’s hard to go wrong taking the opposite position of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer on just about any subject of public import. Gun-control, healthcare, government spending, whatever, find out which side Schumer is on and choose the other. Which brings us to eight words I never thought I’d say or […]

I’ve written repeatedly that there will be no peace between Israelis and Palestinians until the Palestinians halt the indoctrination into their death cult that glorifies murderers and dehumanizes Jews. To the American and European left that actually believes the Palestinians want peace, there can be no better evidence of Palestinian perfidy than the website of […]

I’ve been saying for years that the various “peace processes” in the Middle East aimed at getting the Palestinians and Israelis to live next to one another without killing each other were useless until the media and culture of the Palestinians prepared the people for that day.

The Society for Professional Journalists is considering whether or not to remove notorious anti-Semite Helen Thomas’ name from the organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award at its executive committee meeting this weekend.
