Truth Seeking Truth
These are some of the biggest lies the mainstream media has told in the past few years. We all remember some of them, but let us try not to forget the top ten lies. I’m sure they want us to forget them, but let’s treasure them we haven’t forgotten. Number one would have to be, “The Trump Russia collusion”. The media has not mentioned it any longer cense Biden became elected. Wow, one would think they would keep on with this number one lie of theirs. We all know there must have been crooked FBI agents involved. Then it took two years for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to complete his investigation stating there was no evidence to these claims.
We all should remember all of the anonymous sources. Last I remember is a person being accused of a crime has the right to face their accuser. This didn’t happen in the Case against then-President Trump. Talk of Impeaching Trump came even before he was sworn in as the 45th President of The United States. Nancy Pelosi fears the coming back of Trump so bad she hasn’t stopped even though Joe Biden is President. Just a little throwback of how she took the Senate’s vote on Impeaching Trump. She didn’t take it very well. Now let’s move on to number two of what I think are the biggest lies. Lie number two,” Muslim Ban”.
On January 27, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order called “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” which is intended to screen out “radical Islamic terrorists.” The Executive Order includes the following: (1) suspend admission of all refugees for 120 days while a new system is put in place to tighten vetting, (2) ban the entry of foreign nationals for 90 days from seven majority Muslim countries: Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Iran and (3) halt the flow of refugees from Syria until further notice. At first, the order was interpreted to mean that even lawful permanent residents (also known as green card holders) who were from those seven countries could not enter the United States.
Since early 2017 when President Trump’s original Executive Order was blocked, there have been several revised versions of the ban. These versions, which have gone through various court challenges, included the following changes: excluded some countries from the original ban; added two non-Muslim majority countries and varied some of the restrictions by country. In January 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments on the latest version of the travel ban and on June 26, 2018, voted (in a 5-to-4 vote) to uphold the constitutionality of the third version of the Muslim ban. The Court held that the President was within his authority when he blocked travel from several Muslim-majority countries. Justice Sonia Sotomayor, delivering the dissent, said,
“Taking all the relevant evidence together, a reasonable observer would conclude that the Proclamation was driven primarily by anti-Muslim animus, rather than by the Government’s asserted national-security justifications.” Number Three would have to be The “kids in cages”. The Democrats were accusing then President Trump of building cages for immigrant children and housing them in them. The only thing then President Trump did was go with what was already in place. The Obama administration had built the cages and housed the immigrant children in them. I am not hearing anything from the Mainstream media about the cages now that Joe Biden is President.
I wondering where is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Where is she now? Why isn’t she running down to the border and showing how much she is against the immigrant children being kept in the so-called cages? It seems she has no opinion(s) to this now that Joe Biden (Democrat) is President now. She was trying to say then President Trump was a monster. If she really cared about what happens to the caged children then one would think she would still be down to the border and claiming the Biden administration were monsters as well as then President Trump.
