"Sen. Ted Cruz knowingly misstated CNN's reporting during Saturday's Republican primary debate, despite the fact that CNN's reporting was correct all along.

"Cruz blamed CNN for a message his campaign sent to supporters the night of the Iowa caucuses suggesting Carson was going to suspend his campaign.

""My political team saw CNN's report breaking news and they forwarded that news to our volunteers, it was being covered on live television," Cruz said during the debate.

"Cruz also claimed CNN had inaccurately reported that Carson was suspending his campaign "from 6:30 p.m. to 9:15," and "didn't correct that story until 9:15 that night."

"That is false. CNN never reported that Carson was suspending his campaign and never issued a correction, because there was no need to do so."

Inciting hatred of Muslims is a huge money-maker in America.

"Indeed, participants in the Islamophobia “industry” — a term often used to describe the vast network of well-founded organizations that propagate anti-Islam positions — are known to repeatedly accuse organizations of funding or being otherwise connected to extremists as a way of deriding Muslims. According the Center for American Progress’ most recent report on Islamophobia, the tactic is often used as a way to justify larger conspiracy theories, such as the idea that “American Muslim organizations serve as the vanguard of an Islamist plot to take over America.

"Yet a new study released on Tuesday by the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security found that while the number of Muslim Americans involved in extremist activity has risen in the past years (they’re often recent converts to the faith), the potential danger and influence of such individuals has been wildly exaggerated. What’s more, the intense scrutiny overlaid on Muslim Americans ignores the fact that U.S. citizens are seven times more likely to be killed by a right-wing extremist than a militant claiming to represent Islam, and ultimately just serves to incite hostility against Muslims.

"“The demonization of Muslim Americans in some American social and political spheres has created a hostile climate far out of scale with the actual number of Muslim Americans involved in violence,” University of North Carolina sociologist Charles Kurzman and author of the Triangle Center report, told the Religion News Service."
"I know of no other religious community that has this kind of litmus test applied to it."

Wow. Ted Cruz is nearly as big a crybaby as his supporter +Ken Carlos.
Chris Wallace makes Ted Cruz look like a fool for complaining about tough questions.

#Republicans  are, by nature and by choice, both racist and devoted to the destruction of #democracy  in America. Michigan's "emergency management" law is perhaps the clearest example of this truth.

"And here's one fact of life in Michigan: emergency management is normally only imposed on majority-black cities. From 2013 to 2014, 52 percent of the African American residents in the state lived under emergency management, compared to only 2 percent of white residents. And yet the repeal vote against the previous version of the act was a demographic landslide: 75 out of 83 counties voted to nix the legislation, including all of Michigan's northern, overwhelmingly white, rural counties. "I think people just internalized that P.A. 4 was undemocratic," [journalist Russ] Bellant says."

The only thing more hilarious than the scam itself is the thought of somebody actually falling for it.
 
Nigerian scammers get a space program

The latest scam email out of Nigeria involves a Nigerian astronaut stuck in space who needs millions of dollars to return home.

This is awesome:

Oh, lookie. Ted Cruz is lying to voters and bullying them at the same time.

No wonder lying bully +Ken Carlos is backing Cruz. Birds of a feather...

But... but... but... more guns should make everything perfect!

Isn't that right, +Ken Carlos

"A Pennsylvania woman was murdered after she rejected the romantic overtures of a man she encountered at a Pittsburgh bar.

"Janese Talton-Jackson, the 29 year-old mother of three children, was at Cliff’s Bar as closing time neared on January 22. A man, identified by police as Charles McKinney, approached Talton-Jackson and asked her out on a date, according to CBS Pittsburgh. She rejected the man’s advances and he then followed her outside and eventually shot her in the chest. She was pronounced dead at the scene."
