when it comes to factual and correct statistics and facts about firearms , crimes, etc. there is no one better and more versed and more accurate that John Lott Jr and the center that he heads up ....... what ever he says or writes, you can bet your boopie it is correct .... I use the info many times from his site to correct the lies that PutZ and the other lefties put on here ...
My only problem with your theory about the perpetually offended media is that those two reasons are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
I adamantly believe that they can be (and are) both "clueless" and "willfully dishonest!"
Totally willfully dishonest on the part of today's news media.
The hyper-lib Huffy and Yahoo are co-owned by the same group. Newsweek went left-wing a while ago, MSNBC, well....can't say anything positive about them.
2) “These big flows of people are all trying to take advantage of DACA. They want in on the act!” (April 1) FALSE DACA is only available to illegal immigrants who have continuously resided in the United States since 2007, meaning anyone who just recently crossed into the United States would not be eligible for the program.
3) "the Obama Administration was unable to Arrange the Release of Three Hostages in North Korea! Bu I did it!" FALSE Two of the three men being held by North Korea in 2018 were not detained until Donald Trump's presidency.
THe list of trump lies and his liberal use of 'facts' is well documented. I shan't waste my time or yours recalling every one.
Butthurts and Bowlibs can keep whining, I'll just sit back and smile, while we keep winning ;^D
""You will lose. BIGLY I'll start with some recent ones 1) Trump: "I will give the military a pay raise that they haven't received in 10 years" FALSE> they get a raise every year. Its already written in the budget.""
All military/govt employees, retirees and many civilian companies give "pay raises" every year. These "raises" are actually COLA adjustments and NOT a true raise as we know it. That is a normal Coast Of Living Adjustment. It can fluctuate every year.
In the attached chart that was on Politifact (more on them in a bit), note the very fine print at the bottom about what happened in 2007 (below). I'm pretty sure those "separate" raises are the actual pay raises in question Trump was talking about. If I remember correctly, those were true pay raises targeting certain military members for retention purposes. That is common if the military wants to keep certain folks with certain experience levels. They also give reenlistment bonuses for certain critical jobs....those are also a pay raise of sorts as they get taxed (allowances do not get taxed). I think those 2007 raises were targeting the mid-grade enlisted (E4 - E6 types and some junior officers. Those were the people groups who were leaving the military at that time in history. Those raises would have been carrots to entice them to stick around.
"" Note: There were two separate raises in 2007 and they are listed separately. Years listed are calendar years, not fiscal years. Source: Department of Defense ""
Now for Politifact - They are misleading too and not providing "the rest of the story". They should have read and researched the fine print at the bottom of the chart they provided. They would have found out about those true pay raises in 2007 and should have explained that is likely where Trump was getting his "10 years" number. Shame on Politifact for misleading thru omission.
So why would trump be so eager to “save ZTE?”
