Lying Anti-Trump Ad No Surprise When You See Who’s Behind It

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)-“An Erie County man who describes regret over voting for President Donald Trump in 2016 didn’t vote for him, according to news organizations that checked his voting record,” Penn Live reported Friday. “Mark Graham is featured in videos created by America Bridge, a Democrat-supporting political action committee, or PAC.”

Shame on Graham. The story indicates that despite protests and demands for an apology by Pennsylvania Republicans, the video has not been taken down from America Bridge’s website. Even if it is, the internet is forever and this will follow him around in meatspace, probably for the rest of his life – as it should, especially noting his unremorseful, defensive and even proud attitude.

But Graham is just a tool. The real reputation to look at is that belonging to the group that knowingly sticks to the lie even after being exposed, and that does not even have the integrity to admit it was wrong, let alone to fess up to being so deliberately. It’s fair to conclude the only thing they’re sorry about is getting caught.

It’s also fair to conclude that these “Democrats” don’t much care about what people think. Otherwise, we’d be able to count “up” votes vs. “down” votes and they would not have disabled comments on their YouTube posting, which still claims Graham “voted for Donald Trump in 2016.”

Lie much?

So who are these guys trying to dishonestly influence an election (and you'd think there'd be laws against knowing fraud)? The Penn Live report just gives us the name of the PAC. A cursory scan for related stories shows the media isn’t exactly tripping all over itself to identify who is behind “American Bridge,” which just looking at the video proves to be “American Bridge 21st Century.” Any reporter with another 10 seconds to spare would have then been able to document it’s a multi-million-dollar effort to run anti-Trump ads “led” by (one-time “conservative”) David Brock, of Media Matters notoriety. In fairness to “real reporters,” it did take me over a minute to locate a copy of Brock’s 2010 statement of organization to the Federal Elections Commission. Perhaps, since they obviously enjoy more resources than #justablogger, one or more intrepid journalists could look into why so many American Bridge donors cite “Not Employed” as their occupation.

But back to Brock and Media Matters, which recently was caught in another lie it has not corrected, one that involved “misquoting” Armed American Radio host Mark Walters from a conversation he had with me on his program: Walters had clearly stated he was “lawfully carrying [his] sidearm.” To make him appear a scofflaw, Media Matters transcribed it as “laughing and carrying [his] sidearm.”

Speaking of guns, in 2012, Tucker Carlson and Vince Coglianese writing in the Daily Caller reported “paranoid” Media Matters founder David Brock had bodyguards, and an “executive assistant [who] carried a handgun to public events,” including in Washington, D.C. At the time of the report, that was illegal, meaning he could not have been “lawfully carrying.” Evidently, “progressive” elites believe “gun laws” they demand for the rest of us do not apply to them.

Add to that Media Matters reportedly coordinated spin with Eric Holder’s Department of Justice on stories about ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious “gun-walking” plot that resulted in the deaths of two federal agents and an untold number of Mexican nationals. Curiously, the same DOJ operative on point with Media Matters dismissed a bar complaint against Holder I had made with colleague Mike Vanderboegh as “specious” and “frivolous.”

The Daily Caller report further cited employee assessments of Brock’s “volatile and erratic behavior and struggled with mental illness,” and his abusive treatment of employees:

“Meanwhile, Brock became rigid and harsh with his employees — ‘viciously mean,’ in the words of someone who witnessed it. ‘He spent a lot of time ripping up researchers. It was abusive. I never understood why more people didn’t quit.’ One staffer recalls Brock saying he would like to fire a researcher for being physically repugnant. ‘David definitely does not like ugly people.’”

It makes it fair to ask what kind of self-loathing lickspittles would work for such a man, or for Media Matters President Angelo Carusone, who “wrote of ‘japs,' ‘jewry' and ‘trannies'.” If there’s one thing “progressives” are consistent with, it’s in-your-face hypocrisy.

These are the creatures the disposable tool in Erie lied for and allowed himself to be exploited by. These are the ones he now rightfully shares a reputation with, although in the case of Brock and Media Matters, one gets the sense they know exactly what they are and that they revel in the role.

If you reached over that guy in the pics head and grabbed his scalp just below the rear hairline and pulled it up over his head down his face to the bottom of the front of his neck you would be looking at what he really is.

Democrats lie everyday in about 99.9 % of their conversations and then brag about it. Nancy Pig-Losi even made an instructional video about how to do it and get the media to do the distribution. It is called the “Wrap Up Smear” . Never trust a democrap.

The only thing you can trust a commiecrat to do is obey the laws of physics and gravity. 9.8 meters per second squared, to be precise.

Hey David,

Last time I checked the body count due to guns from Fast and Furious in Mexico were up to about 5,500.

Do you have any more up-to-date numbers?

Cheers from the oil patch in Central Wyoming and happy New Year

Florida Gun-Owners, Wake Up. If you (we) don’t get off the sofa and say something now, We will probably see the same fate as is going down in Va. These are the facts; -There are 41 gun related bills pre-filed in Tallahassee, 38 of them are UnConstitutional Gun-Grabs of all types. 1 of the 41 is ‘Constitutional Carry’. -‘Everytown’ gave the Senate President’s (GOP) super-pac $500000.00 (yes, that’s one-half million) end of 2018. He promptly shared that with the rest of the Florida senate. Are you going to sit there and believe that they will ‘do what’s right’ by the… Read more »

Jack (linked directly to Trump, as inside as inside gets without violating national security laws) says if you think the war in Syria was something then wait till the war against the Cartels kick off. Buy ammo is the message of the day. This is equivalent to Trump himself saying this. Illegals are currently flowing out of the containment zone into the rurals here and hitting easier targets looting and so forth but you won’t read it in the deep state MSN.
It’s going to be a spectacular 2020.
Restore the Republic!

WF, No, more like something not stated in the article which is providing quarter for the enemy of liberty. Failure to stick So rosn azi name to this is allowing him to play puppet master undetected by those who don’t know this info if any exist that are still this Sheep like. Sor osn azi owns the puppets we are engaged with and he needs to be publicly Red Flagged for this by name every time he/them and their ilk are mentioned. Media Matters I’m certain is run by his ilk son hiding behind the names of others as they… Read more »
