FAKE PHOTO OF ‘KIDS IN CAGES’ SPREAD BY ILLEGAL MIINIGRANT ACTIVIST JOSE ANTONIO VARGAS

Posted on

 

 

( Daily Wire ) Like the viral image of immigrants from the Obama-era falsely attributed to the Trump administration, a photo of a child immigrant locked in a cage spread around by immigration activists has turned out to be yet more fake news.

An image shared by the likes of actor Ron Perlman and illegal immigrant reporter Jose Antonio Vargas purports to show a young boy in tears clinging to the sides of a cage.

“This is what happens when a government believes people are ‘illegal.’ Kids in cages,” wrote Vargas.

Twitchy quickly called out Vargas for his “share first, verify later” brand of “journalism”:

It turns out that Karissa was right to worry about conservatives calling it “fake” because fake is exactly what it is. The image was taken as a protest stunt by a pro-immigrant group.

HEY FAKE NEWS MEDIA! PHOTOS Inside Shelter for Illegal Alien Children Separated from Parents

Posted on Updated on

Bedroom El Cajon SWK (HHS)

  • The facility at El Cajon is not a “cage.” It is a comfortable facility providing lodging, meals, clothing, medical care, education, recreation, counseling, and other services.
  • The facility is located on a main street in a quiet, suburban neighborhood. It has 65 beds, occupied by boys ages 6 to 17.
  • The rooms are spare, with three to four beds in each; the boys are responsible for cleaning the rooms and making their own beds. There is an outdoor recreation area with picnic tables and a small soccer pitch.
  • The children are separated from their parents — or, to be precise, from the adults accompanying them, who may or may not be their parents — when their parents cross the southern U.S. border illegally and are caught and detained.
 

The Department of Health and Human Services hosted Breitbart News and other media on a tour of a facility in El Cajon, California, on Friday where migrant children are being sheltered after being separated from their parents.

The children are separated from their parents — or, to be precise, from the adults accompanying them, who may or may not be their parents — when their parents cross the southern U.S. border illegally and are caught and detained.

Previously, under the “catch-and-release” policy, the adults would be released. Under the “zero tolerance” policy of the Trump administration, the adults are being detained and prosecuted. Children cannot be incarcerated with them.

However, families that arrive together at legal ports of entry and apply for asylum status are generally not split up and are permitted to stay in the U.S. pending the adjudication of their applications (which can take several years).

Democrats and the mainstream media have accused the administration of separating the children of “immigrants” from their parents and imprisoning them in “cages.” On Thursday, CNN analyst and Playboy reporter Brian Karem shouted at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “These people have nothing. They come to the border with nothing and you throw children in cages.” None of the reporters in the briefing room corrected him.

The facility at El Cajon, however, is not a “cage.” It is a comfortable facility providing lodging, meals, clothing, medical care, education, recreation, counseling, and other services.

Fake News: Washington Post, Media Matters Post Deceptive Edit of ‘Hannity’ Quote

Posted on

  • Hannity: “If I advised them to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead, delete all your emails, and then acid wash the emails and hard drives on the phones”
  • The Media Matters staffer left the end of the segment, where Hannity sarcastically concluded, “I’m sure the result would not be the same as Hillary’s.”
 

Media Matters and the Washington Post were caught reporting deceptively edited quotes from Sean Hannity, claiming the Fox News host suggested witnesses of the Russia investigation destroy their phones to blunt special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Andrew Lawrence, a senior researcher at left-wing media “watchdog” Media Matters, tweeted selectively edited video of Hannity’s segment in which the Fox News host joked about the double standards exhibited by investigators in the Mueller and Clinton email investigations.

 

“They are demanding that witnesses turn in their phones,” Hannity began, adding:

If I advised them to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead, delete all your emails, and then acid wash the emails and hard drives on the phones, then take your phones and bash them with a hammer into little itsy bitsy pieces, use BleachBit, remove the SIM cards, and then take the pieces and hand it over to Robert Mueller, how do you think that would work out for everybody?

The Media Matters staffer left the end of the segment, where Hannity sarcastically concluded, “I’m sure the result would not be the same as Hillary’s.”

Washington Post reporter Philip Bump ran with the deceptive quote, suggesting Hannity may not have been kidding because the so-called advice was repeated multiple times.

FAKE NEWS! INDICTED RUSSIAN AGENCY $1.25M BUDGET WAS NOT FOR U.S. ONLY – RUSSIA AND OTHER COUNTRIES INCLUDED

Posted on

  • Russian company Internet Research Agency ‘Project Lakhta’ was a worldwide trolling program–aimed at multiple countries including Russia itself and the United States–with a monthly budget in excess of $1.25 million.

 

( Law and Crime ) Mainstream media accounts have mostly sensationalized the amount of money spent by the Internet Research Agency on the group’s social media trolling effort known as “Project Lakhta.” Pages 6 and 7 of the indictment note:

a. CONCORD funded the ORGANIZATION as part of a larger CONCORD-funded interference operation that it referred to as “Project Lakhta.” Project Lakhta had multiple components, some involving domestic audiences within the Russian Federation and others targeting foreign audiences in various countries, including the United States.

b. By in or around September 2016, the ORGANIZATION’s monthly budget for Project Lakhta submitted to CONCORD exceeded 73 million Russian rubles (over 1,250,000 U.S. dollars), including approximately one million rubles in bonus payments.

Therefore, an accurate and contextualized understanding of this section would read something akin to: Project Lakhta was a worldwide trolling program–aimed at multiple countries including Russia itself and the United States–with a monthly budget in excess of $1.25 million.

But spending $1.25 million per month on a worldwide trolling program just doesn’t have the same sting as spending $1.25 million per month in the United States alone–so most media accounts simply fail to mention this.

The New York Times misleading coverage reads, “The Russian nationals were accused of working with the Internet Research Agency, which had a budget of millions of dollars and was designed to reach millions of Americans.”

CNN‘s coverage was similar, “By around September 2016, the indictment says, the Internet Research Agency’s monthly budget for the project that included the US election interference operation exceeded 73 million Russian rubles, or over $1.25 million.”

The Washington Post’s analysis of the Mueller indictment also fails to offer any sort of context, but provides a hefty dose of additional darkness in the way of obfuscatory musings about spending during the primaries. Aaron Blake writes, “At one point in the indictment, a price tag is put on the effort: $1.25 million in one month, as of September 2016. To put that in perspective, that’s as much as some entire presidential campaigns were spending monthly during the primaries.”

The Atlantic‘s national security and intelligence committee staff writer Natasha Bertrand breathlessly repeated the context-free assumption in a still-extant tweet with over 2,500 retweets and over 4,200 likes as of Saturday afternoon.

As journalist Aaron Maté noted, most Americans are likely to infer the $1.25 million-per-month was solely allocated for U.S.-focused trolling efforts. But the above-referenced journalists aren’t stupid. That’s probably by design.

REP. ZELDIN: McCabe’s TESTIMONY THAT DOSSIER WAS USED FOR FISA WARRANTS WAS RECORDED – NUKES CNN’s FAKE NEWS

Posted on

  • GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin: ‘McCabe did in fact testify under oath that there would not have been a FISA warrant if not for the dossier. It was recorded.’
  • CNN: McCabe did not say that the Steele-Hillary funded dossier was used for the warrants – citing their usual ‘anonymous sources’

 

Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) took to Twitter  to nuke another fake claim by CNN.

CNN ran their latest fake news today citing their usual ‘anonymous sources’ – which means their imaginary sources – claiming that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe McCabe did not say that the Steele-Hillary funded dossier was used for the warrants. CNN’s Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto cited two ‘anonymous sources’ on air for their fake news claim.

However, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) asserted that former-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s statements regarding the dossier were recorded during his sworn testimony.

 

McCabe did in fact testify under oath that there would not have been a FISA warrant if not for the dossier. It was recorded.
