When I looked up the link I was reminded of the biblical warning of "there shall be wars and rumors of war". Very apocalyptic news facts that can lead to much trouble.

If the Government says the unarmed people made them kill them it is 'probably a lie'.

Meanwhile, the ALT-left over here spew fake news while whining about fake news. The hypocrisy is f*cking palpable.

Did CNN just blast the Onion for publishing some 'facts' they couldn't uncover?

PS
IMO you do have a party connection, it just isn't in Canada.

��Nothing on this page is real��: How lies become truth in online America


Christopher Blair's political satire page �� started during the 2016 presidential campaign as a practical joke by him and a few other liberal bloggers �� has become one of the most popular on Facebook among Trump-supporting conservatives over 55.

In the past two years on his page, America��s Last Line of Defense, Blair has made up stories about California instituting sharia, former president Bill Clinton becoming a serial killer, undocumented immigrants defacing Mount Rushmore, and former president Barack Obama dodging the draft during the Vietnam War when he was 9.

��Share if you��re outraged!�� his posts often read, and thousands of people do, clicking ��like�� and then ��share�� on posts most of them don't recognize as satire.

Still believing everything you read in the Washington Post , I see . Have any of their predictions about Trump come to pass ? Gee remember when they told you Trump would never win the primaries? That Trump would not win the presidency and Hillary was a lock ? Russian collusion . Maybe it is time to change sources.

Comparing articles is better than dropping one only to let one be the replacement. One close to each side and an intermediate source .
This is my intermediate on for the Mid-East. I have to admit the relationship of the PM and the KSA and France is bizarre in that he is close to them than to the people who voted him in.
