About 1/3, but who’s counting?
The point here is that I follow political comics to get political content. I follow non-political content for non-political HUMOR.
When I open the Sunday funnies section of my local newspaper there are no political comics. Those are confined to the editorial page.
BTW, I love what you did there. Typical liberal move. You disagree with me so I am instantly a Nazi. How very…fascist of you.
Sorry Danni, far too many of their political “articles” have been debunked. The slant is left, the ownership is left. Not nearly as bad as MediaMatters, but certainly worse than Politifact.
Simple example: Clinton defended a child rapist. See the analysis of the Snopes article addressing Clinton’s interview with Roy Reed. yournewswire dot com / snopes-caught-lying-for-hillary-again-questions-raised
This is one of just hundreds of verified lies published by Snopes. Have fun reading the entire article. Yes, it comes from a right leaning source. However, it links to all of the related sources and allows the reader to review the FULL content. Listen to the tape and tell me Snopes didn’t twist, squirm and lie.
Enough already. Stop with the politics.
Snopes? Really? I suppose you quote Al Gore for environmental “facts” as well.
Thanks for blowing yourself up.
There were no formal “charges” under the Obama rules. Simply a file notation and then a boot in the rump back across the border. No court date, no formal arrest or charges. They were counted as deportations even though they were not formally deported.
However, they were counted as deported, reported as deported and sold to the American public as deported. Even when some of the media and special interest groups exposed the accounting sham, Obama’s DoJ continued to report border returns as formal deportations.
It was not until the scandal of the wave of so-called “unescorted children” hit the MSM that Obama was forced to set up holding facilities instead of just throwing them back or releasing them into the community.
The reality is covered by that old quote. “Figures never lie, but liars figure.” The Obama administration were consummate liars about any statistic that could be massaged to make them look better or reduce negative imaging.
“The Crusades of Cesar Chavez” by Miriam Pawel
…wet lines were set up by Chavez’s close cousin Manuel, who in 1974 paid about three hundred United Farm Worker members to patrol a stretch of the border between Yuma, Arizona and San Luis, Mexico. They were intended to intercept unauthorized crossers en route and persuade them to turn back, thereby forcing the hand of lemon growers who were resisting a UFW strike for contracts. “If we can get the illegals out of California,” he (Chavez) would often say, “we will win the strike overnight.”
The patrols turned violent quick. Stories began surfacing in papers on both sides of the border about crossers being beaten and even robbed. Mexicali’s La Voz wrote that thirty-seven people were attacked in all — possibly a fraction of the actual total, since as Pawel notes, unauthorized crossers were usually loathe to report crimes to the police. Meanwhile, the UFW bribed Mexican officials in San Luis to patrol their own side of the border for people heading north.
Obama change the definition. The old method did not count people intercepted at the border and turned back. Under Obama, they started to include those figures as “deportations”.
More than doubled the “deportation” numbers overnight. Don’t take my word for it. Look it up. It is public record.
That is so very sad. So true, and so sad.
