Hey, conservative movement:

shiat like this is why you were surprised when you lost the election.

Sorry. I don't trust any conservative fact checking site that doesn't have a picture of a fat guy standing in front of pine trees.

I'm glad to see they have gordon gecko around to write their article on hostess

"The bankruptcies and salary increases were part one -- the latter isn't greed; it's simply compensation. The liquidation was also carefully managed, and the proposal to cut workers' salaries and retirement benefits was specifically designed to be a win-win -- if they capitulated, then the company would stay in business. And if they did not, then the assets would be sold to the highest bidder. And, Twinkies and the other Hostess brands will survive."

FTF-Oil-Price-Article:President Romney can shake things up by offering tax incentives to domestic oil companies to keep their oil in the United States. It's simple: if an oil company sells its product domestically for $46 a gallon (about the price necessary for gas that's $2.00 a gallon or less), they get a tax incentive against the money they lose by selling it at the current spot market price.

This is a very bad idea for the GOP to be traveling down this spiral into an echo chamber so dense that no talkingpoints can escape. The Democrats fight their battles and move their narrative on the traditional media "the lamestream media" where Republicans are fighting their battles and trying to push their narrative on conspiracy news orgs and websites that are only preaching to the choir.

That said I hope they do go down this route because their ideas are shiatty and bad for America.

If it was a fact-checking site that concentrated on debunking liberal lies or half-truths, that would be fine. However, I think we all knew it would have bullshiat like this:

To have any semblance of fairness, PolitiFact should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of lies from both sides.

That idea should be beaten to death with a hammer.

This is satire, right? This is not a real website. I think you're all being trolled.

"It's seemed that not a single liberal media article referencing this quote is complete without mentioning studies that 25,000 - 50,000 adults die prematurely each year due to a lack of health insurance.

25,000 to 50,000. Are those numbers accurate? Perhaps.

But, remember: there are some 206 million adults living in the United States (source: Wikipedia).

This means that each year, only one in four thousand adults will die prematurely as the result of a lack of health insurance. That's statistically insignificant."

They already have some of it. Hugh Hewitt pimps "conservative email addresses" at @Reagan.com, broadcasts from the "Reagan studios". During the ads for said emails, he goes on about how all the Google/Amazon/Apple tech types support leftists so you need an email address that doesn't line their pockets. Seriously.

In moron land, this is true:

"Mitt Romney carried 24 states. We need to have conservative activists from all over the nation contact the electors, the Republican Party and the secretary of state in all of these states and tell them not to participate in the Electoral College when it meets on Dec. 17. If we can get 17 of those states (just over one-third) to refuse to participate, the Electoral College will have no quorum. Then, as the Constitution directs, the election goes to the House of Representatives."

Meanwhile, in actual reality: snopes

Morons make bare assertions. People with half a brain cite their sources. It's a key difference.

Millions of people were stunned by the result of that fateful night. And the first question that many people had was "how could all the polls have been so wrong?"Rasmussen and Gallup, traditionally understood to be among the most accurate polls, had Romney. And these indicators were backed up by the scientific data: unskewedpolls.com, a site which adjusted for the left-wing bias of many polling organizations, also showed a clear victory for Romney.

I don't think that's a typo. It's saying that the senator is going to save 'is,' which is to say the present. Obama can't really mess with 'was' unless he uses his time machine, and we all know how the right feels about how he is going to effect the 'will be.'

THIS HAS TO BE SATIRE

The disastrous election results were shocking here at CFC HQ. But we've pulled ourselves off the floor, and we're upping our commitment to providing accurate, conservative-based fact checking for people who recognize the truth.

That starts with some freshening of the site's look. The Obama tax hikes have prevented us from hiring professional web designers, so we're doing it ourselves... so please be patient.


I'm mostly in agreement. It could be an epic manifestation of Poe's Law.

Awesome. Great narrative on that site. Republicans are good, are always right, and anything which calls that into question must be a result of liberal bias.

A fav, besides some already mentioned, is this.

"Sure, the economy's recovering under Obama after Bush screwed it up, but it's not recovering fast enough, so Obama's bad."

HotWingConspiracy: I used to find this practice of corralling people in to the alternate conservative reality as disgusting and dangerous, but after the election I'm completely thrilled that these people are segregating themselves from reality.

They will get violent at some point though, that's going to suck.


Meh, civil wars are clarifying.
 
2012-11-29 10:46:48 AM  
We assembled this chart by sorting PolitiFact's complete list of "Pants On Fire" rulings. We filtered out any rulings of chain email or anonymous Facebook posts (although these were virtually all conservative viewpoints), as well as politicians or organizations who had only one "Pants On Fire" ruling (but again, even these were mostly conservatives).

The results are, sadly, not surprising. But the situation is grave. PolitiFact (and other supposedly unbiased fact-checking sites) paint Mitt Romney as a serial liar. They also unfairly tarnish Michele Bachmann as a liar, when anybody who follows her already understands that many of her statements aren't meant to be truthful in the first place -- she simply says what she feels.

Notice that PolitiFact states that Barack Obama lies more than Sarah Palin. That's good news -- but keep in mind that Barack Obama's statements are across two campaigns, while Sarah Palin's were across only one.

To have any semblance of fairness, PolitiFact should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of lies from both sides. They clearly are not concerned with any pretense.

This site has to be satire, I hope. Sadly, it is tough to judge when compared to the BS that many proud southern republicans I know spew.

This is from their piece tearing apart Jindal, who may be the next 'savior' of the Republicans. They do on to claim that a sitting governor who is stripping State resource and trying to push as much money into private hands in a way that would my Gov. Walker proud should run as a Democrat.

Oh, and Obama has screwed up the Economy in 4 years, but Economic policies take time to trickle down, decades even. This stuff is brown gold.

First, an aside: trickle-down economics does work, regardless of what Business Week thinks or claims. We've seen it just in the last decade: thanks to the Bush Tax Cuts (and despite Obama's efforts to undo them), corporate profits are at an all-time high. Tax cuts for the rich work. What economists understand and which the Business Week author does not is that trickle-down takes time. It's a two-step process:

Take the profits earned from a tax cut
Invest these profits into higher wages and more jobs, thus helping the economy.
The Bush tax cuts were only enacted ten years ago. Trickle-down takes time, and the economy will begin to see the rewards soon -- that is, of course, unless Obama is successful in raising taxes on the wealthy. If that's the case, he will have undone ten years of economic progress.

If only the GOP hadn't spent so much time and energy injecting "Obamacare" into the lexicon, the "it was a Republican idea first" gambit might actually work.

I've said before that the Democratic Party really needs to get in on this market -come up with some "conservative" business to siphon off money from potential small GOP donors and troll GOP voters into veering further and further to the right. Then use the profits to run candidates against the Teabaggers they just trolled those voters into nominating. It would be the most efficient political machine ever made.

Nah. It's just another example of photo-bombing. Some poor nature photographer spent an entire afternoon trying to capture the quintessential spruce trees to use for his December calendar page.

Maine GOP claims voter fraud
Chuck Davis | November 15th, 2012 | Tagged: GOP Maine voterID voterfraud

Maine GOP chairman Charlie Webster has received numerous reports of unknown black people showing up at polls and voting.

The Maine Republican Party believes that since these people were not recognized by town officials, they may have come into Maine to vote illegally. The Maine GOP reports that in some localities, there were "dozens" of unknown black people voting.

In 2010, the NOAA was caught reporting hilariously inaccurate temperatures in some localities in an apparent attempt to report higher average temperatures. We're not talking about slight massaging of the data -- the NOAA reported temperatures of 430 degrees Fahrenheit in northern Lake Michigan.

First, an aside: trickle-down economics does work, regardless of what Business Week thinks or claims. We've seen it just in the last decade: thanks to the Bush Tax Cuts (and despite Obama's efforts to undo them), corporate profits are at an all-time high. Tax cuts for the rich work. What economists understand and which the Business Week author does not is that trickle-down takes time. It's a two-step process:

Take the profits earned from a tax cut
Invest these profits into higher wages and more jobs, thus helping the economy.
The Bush tax cuts were only enacted ten years ago. Trickle-down takes time, and the economy will begin to see the rewards soon -- that is, of course, unless Obama is successful in raising taxes on the wealthy. If that's the case, he will have undone ten years of economic progress.

Maine GOP claims voter fraud
Chuck Davis | November 15th, 2012 | Tagged: GOP Maine voterID voterfraud

Maine GOP chairman Charlie Webster has received numerous reports of unknown black people showing up at polls and voting.

The Maine Republican Party believes that since these people were not recognized by town officials, they may have come into Maine to vote illegally. The Maine GOP reports that in some localities, there were "dozens" of unknown black people voting.

Guys, here's the thing. In any election, there will be winners and losers. The shocking thing isn't that you lost. It's that you had no idea you were losing...because being out of touch with reality on a consistent basis is pretty much the definition of insanity. I understand that the consistent reaction is to continue being insane, but, if you do continue with this, we need to remove you from society. This isn't just for our safety; it's for your own safety, too.

"It's seemed that not a single liberal media article referencing this quote is complete without mentioning studies that 25,000 - 50,000 adults die prematurely each year due to a lack of health insurance.

25,000 to 50,000. Are those numbers accurate? Perhaps.

But, remember: there are some 206 million adults living in the United States (source: Wikipedia).

This means that each year, only one in four thousand adults will die prematurely as the result of a lack of health insurance. That's statistically insignificant."


PiperArrow: "To have any semblance of fairness, PolitiFact should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of lies from both sides. They clearly are not concerned with any pretense."

To have any semblance of fairness, Nate Silver should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of polls showing Republicans leading as polls showing Democrats leading.

To have any semblance of fairness, scientific journals should play it 50/50 and publish an equal number of articles supporting Darwinists as those supporting Intelligent Design.


To have any semblance of fairness, NASA should play it 50/50 and spend half of its budget on space programs that assume the Earth is round, and half its budget on space programs that assume the Earth is flat. They clearly are not concerned with any pretense.

They also unfairly tarnish Michele Bachmann as a liar, when anybody who follows her already understands that many of her statements aren't meant to be truthful in the first place -- she simply says what she feels.

Notice that PolitiFact states that Barack Obama lies more than Sarah Palin. That's good news -- but keep in mind that Barack Obama's statements are across two campaigns, while Sarah Palin's were across only one.

To have any semblance of fairness, PolitiFact should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of lies from both sides. They clearly are not concerned with any pretense."

Except that, by the very act of creating the chart, it is inherently misleading to have a bar for 6 even visible next to another bar for 162,000.

The whole point of bar charts is to graphically illustrate different (but comparable) quantities. If we use the same approach, a bar chart comparing my net worth with that of Bill Gates' would suggest that I have a net worth, oh, around a tenth of his. Which would be slightly misleading.

2012-11-29 04:08:14 PM  
I'm waiting for Conservatives to go full-on and just create their own reality and deliberately construct it so that it never interacts with actual reality.

So this means they will eventually create their own versions of everything -- websites, books, TV channels, magazines, newspapers, museums, schools, theme parks, television channels, radio programs, foundations, institutions, think tanks and other media that form an echo chamber of insulating fundamentalism driven by so much reinforced rhetoric and unconditional self-affirmation that it never has to interfere with real life. Eventually it will get so complete that someone could go from birth to death entirely within this framework of reality and never interact with outside world at all.

This reality could then claim Romney won the election, and Romney would stage press conferences and speeches specifically for this reality, and these people would go on thinking that he won, and they'd listen to him speak whenever there's an issue or crisis, and all the sources they check confirm him as President because they aren't aware of any other sources, and whole generations could live within this "arboretum" of reality.

Just like Christianity.

The problem: non-partisan fact checking.
The solution: partisan fact checking.

In the Conservative world, anyone who not actively Conservative is a Liberal not to be trusted. Furthermore, since the non-partisan fact checkers call BS on what Conservatives claim(because they in fact claim BS), this PROVES the fact checkers are Liberals! It in no way could have anything to do with them being completely out of touch with reality. NEVER!

Well they have Conservapedia already, so we really should not be surprised.

maxheck: On the plus side, I would never have known there was a Government Is Not God PAC were it not for this site. It's got all the wharrgarbl with nary a hint of Poe's Law.


I clicked. "Floridans reject patriots - but relect a leftist lunatic". Read the story. Will now have to go watch Psych so as to erase my mind.

Thanks :(

A few years ago I would be convinced this was satire. Now? Well, after this year's presidential election I'm not ruling out the distinct possibility this site is meant to be 100% serious. I didn't quit the Republican party for no reason.

It's good to see how HerpaDerpaDoo is getting along these days.

/anyone got his chart showing that Obama is equal to like 4 Hitlers and how impressive that was since Hitler only reached a level of 0.8 Hitlers? That was the moment I realized he had gone beyond trolling into performance art, an early model Mike_LowELL.

I'm more than happy to poke fun at the stupidity of Conservatives, but the website is too well written for it to be real. I vote Poe's.

Three Crooked Squirrels:
To have any semblance of fairness, PolitiFact should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of lies from both sides. They clearly are not concerned with any pretense.
???

What's confusing about it?

Politifact has rated far more Republican statements as being "pants-on-fire lies" (they'd rate them "pants on head retarded" too, if they could) than Democrat statements.

Clearly, therefore, Politifact is biased against Republicans.

Saying that Republicans are simply caught in more lies must be slander due to bias.

That's the logic there.

It's like saying that the police must be biased because they give out more speeding tickets to people who are driving Honda Civics than are driving Honda Minivans. The fact that more Civic drivers like to rice-rocket-out their rides and there are entire groups of people who think that you can street-race in Civics shouldn't enter into it, it's not fair that the cops don't give an equal number of tickets to Minivan drivers.

May some enterprising troll come up with a site dedicated to making up outrageous political "scandals" and "stolen documents" to see how many idiots bite...

Heh. I checked on their story about voter turnout being higher than 100% and this is the introduction, speaking of the 2010 elections and the Tea Party:

"Many self-identified tea partiers weren't very politically savvy, and many of them lacked even a high school education, but the Tea Party gave them a place on the national stage. It was a beautiful example of democracy in action."
