‘For a candidate whose résumé lists such distinguished institutions as Harvard College, Harvard Law School, and the United States Army – which are supposed to inculcate such values as truth and honor – Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) seems perfectly comfortable uttering big, fat lies’.
‘The US Senate wanna be when seeking to escape responsibility for his vote against the farm bill, accused President Obama of “hijacking” the legislation and turning it into a “food stamp bill.”
‘The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, as the well-educated Cotton must know, has been included in federal agriculture legislation for more than 40 years’.
‘Now Cotton wants to frighten Arkansas voters with the spectre of ISIS terrorists pouring over the southern border to behead them, in collusion with Mexican drug gangs’.
‘At a town hall meeting, he stated a Fox News fabrication as a plain fact’:
“Groups like the Islamic State collaborate with drug cartels in Mexico who have clearly shown they’re willing to expand outside the drug trade into human trafficking and potentially even terrorism. They could infiltrate our defenseless border and attack us right here in places like Arkansas.”
‘The Department of Homeland Security has called right wing flamethrower Rep. Duncan Hunter’s claim that there have been at least 10 ISIS fighters apprehended at out Southern border “categorically false.”
‘That didn’t stop his office from telling Rachel Maddow’s staff that they stand by his statements and “may release more information tomorrow.”
‘As Maddow noted on this Wednesday’s show, if he does make true on his promise it will probably be on Fox, just like the interview he gave last night, where even host Greta Van Susteren was skeptical of his assertions’.
“Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) claimed Tuesday that “at least” 10 Islamic State fighters were apprehended while attempting to enter the U.S. at its southern border”.
“A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday that Hunter’s claim otherwise was “categorically false.”
“The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the Southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence or the facts on the ground,” DHS spokeswoman Marsha Catron told The Huffington Post’.
‘On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water’.
“You know, I believe in peer-reviewed science. But, I don’t see any peer-reviewed science that proves there is man-made catastrophic climate change.”
“The climate may be changing, but I don’t think man is contributing to it,”Benishek told ABC 10’s news director Greg Peterson’.
‘According to his congressional website, Benishek earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Michigan back in 1974. He went on to graduate from Wayne State Medical School in 1978, and has since worked as a general surgeon in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and worked part-time at the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center in Iron Mountain’.(2)
Sooooooooooooooo a Doctor…..not a scientist.
I always ask a General Surgeon about climate change……
