"Those numbers might sound surprisingly low if you’ve seen the aforementioned map of school shootings since Sandy Hook, which draws on data from the gun-control group Everytown. In part that’s because its count stops this month instead of last November, but it’s also because it includes colleges. (Of the 74 incidents listed by Everytown, 35 occured on or near a college campus.**) The map also includes nonfatal shootings, including accidental discharges and at least four events in which no one was injured at all. And some of its items qualify as “school shootings” only under a rather broad understanding of the phrase. While this killing, for example, did take place in an elementary school parking lot, it happened at night, long after the students and teachers had gone home. The victim was 19."

Yet another gungrabber chart proven to be a lie.

It’s been five years since Obama promised to close Gitmo

This was almost as good as “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis, Consistently Lied About Her Past

She lied about when she had her child, she first ran as a Republican, and was accused by her ex-husband of adultery resulting in the awarding of custody of their children to him.

She didn’t “put herself through law school.”  In fact, her ex-husband cashed out his 401k and did it, and she thanked him by filing for divorce.

There’s plenty more at those two links.  Essentially her biography, and the narrative surrounding her, is mostly a carefully crafted fiction designed to make her a sympathetic character.  Bad details are carefully scrubbed, omitted, or lied about.

Her explanation?  She needs to use “tighter” language.

I guess if “tighter” means “truthful” she might be onto something.

Found this gem in my archives.  It was from way back when Obamacare was being discussed.  This is Linda Douglass showing us the President saying not once, but twice, that if you like your plan and your doctor, you can keep them.

Also note how she dismissed anyone who said otherwise as untruthful.

Also notice how there’s no mention of “You can keep your plan if it falls within the new guidelines.”  In fact, the President is pretty clear in both clips proffered by Douglass to dispute the evil right wing bloggers who knew the President was full of it.

These scumbags in DC should learn; the internet has a permanent memory.

N.Y. Dem. Senator admits: 'We knew' Obama lied about healthcare promise

"We knew" he lied and didn’t say anything, means you lied too, Senator.

Call me an idealist, but if the man in charge finds everything out through the media, what the hell is he actually doing on a day to day basis?

Washington Post: John Kerry Is A Lying Liar

Many politicians have a tendency to look back at their past statements with rose-colored glasses. But given that Kerry has now twice in recent months made the claim that he opposed the war in Iraq, this is clearly not a case of a momentary slip-up.

For Kerry, the uncomfortable fact remains that he voted to authorize the use of force against Iraq, he believed the intelligence that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and he said there was little choice but to launch an invasion to disarm him. Kerry may have been highly critical of Bush’s diplomatic efforts in advance of the invasion, but that is not the same thing as opposing the war when it started.

It’s time for the secretary to stop making this claim. In trying to make a distinction between his vote to authorize the war and his later dismay at how it turned out, Kerry earns Four Pinocchios.

Well…  That certainly won’t feel comfortable without some burn creme.

Shame the internet has a perfect memory, liar.

Really now? My ballot gets mailed to me. No ID required.
To get an AR15 I need to show my ID, fill out 2 background check forms, and call it in to the FBI to get their approval on a background check that is done over the phone.
Sorry, try again.

Gun control advocates are the most uninformed schmucks on the planet.
In fact, I’d be willing to bet their not uninformed; they’re perfectly informed.  They’re just lying.
And incidentally, I live in New York. I have never once been required to show any kind of ID to vote.  EVER.
The problem isn’t that this kind of utter shit is circulating around the internet, it’s that people believe it and recirculate it.

Joe Biden promised to impeach Bush if he unilaterally attacked Iran.

I wonder if he’s going to move to impeach his roommate now that he’s doing the exact same thing in Syria.

Rachel Maddow says that Ohio budget includes requirement for transvaginal ultrasound; it doesn't.

The law specifically says that the ultrasound must be done externally.

Division A of that section says that before performing an abortion, a provider must “determine whether there is a detectable fetal heartbeat of the unborn human individual the pregnant woman is carrying.” The method for detecting a heartbeat is then spelled out in Division C, which says:

The director of health may promulgate rules pursuant to section 111.15 of the Revised Code specifying the appropriate methods of performing an examination for the presence of a fetal heartbeat of an unborn individual based on standard medical practice. The rules shall require only that an examination shall be performed externally.

In other words, not only are external methods such as transabdominal ultrasounds allowed under the new law; they are required. That sinks Maddow’s claim of a “mandatory vaginal probe.”

Not that she’s retracted her claim, but wow.  I understand if you object to the idea of an ultrasound.  Balls of cells can be traumatic to see on screen, but there is nothing in this law that requires a vaginal probe as Maddow says.

She flat out lied.  End of story.

"During yesterday’s Congressional hearings on the NSA, agency head General Keith Alexander claimed that the NSA’s massive surveillance program has successfully prevented “dozens of terrorist events,” but did not go into specifics. Today Democratic senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall called on Alexander to clarify those remarks, saying in a joint statement that neither of them have seen any evidence to support what he said."
