Does ‘Fact-Checking’ help people far too busy to check for themselves?

Does ‘Fact-Checking’ help people far too busy to check for themselves?
“Inquiring minds want to know”
Many companies, like WESH 2 News, WFTV 9 News and ‘Fact-Checking companies’, have been helping with their ‘Fact-Check’ for over a year however; political parties have buried their work with their ads 20 to 1 for over a year’s also!
Every state in the union of the United States of America and even in some countries can make their own decision?
This is my list for Florida.
So
How many times have all of them been ‘Fact- Checking Senator Bill Nelson’ per day?
Very few!
How many times have all of them been ‘Fact- Checking’ ‘Florida’s Rick Scott’ per day?
Many, many times!
How many times have all of them been ‘Fact- Checking ‘Mayor Andrew Gillum’ per day?
Very few!
How many times have all of them been ‘Fact- Checking ‘Ron DeSantis’ per day?
The moral of this poll is?
“The Truth Shell Set You Free!”

Not only is this the first for Maryland, but a first for what the military calls the 54 — every state, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.


Pilot April Vogel is the assistant adjutant general for air and Janeen Birckhead is the assistant adjutant general for army.
She was promoted in June.

The Maryland National Guard traces its roots to 25 March 1634, when two militia captains were amongst 150-odd colonists who disembarked in the new world to form the first European settlement in what would become Maryland.

Native America

Native America
They say that
“You cannot teach old dog new tricks!”
“I must now disagree!”

This has been buried in the back of my mind for over 40 years?
I watched this series on TV and once again my poor little brain was rattled back to yet another memory!
Watch and learn on 10/23-30 pm?
SERIES PREMIERE: NATIVE AMERICA  
(Tuesdays, October 23-30, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET and November 13, 9:00-11:00 p.m. ET)
At the intersection of modern science and Native knowledge is a new vision of the world created by America’s First Peoples. NATIVE AMERICA reaches back 15,000 years to reveal cities aligned to the stars, unique systems of science and spirituality, 100 million people connected by social networks spanning two continents, and a past whose story has for too long remained untold.
Symbolism Of 2 Governments
As colonial leaders such as Ben Franklin an Thomas Jefferson visited with the Haudenosaunee.

At these meetings, the chiefs discussed how our government works. These meetings provided a framework for the 13 colonies to form a similar alliance to be free. The old ones said, that the new government borrowed these symbols because they had none of their own.


White House Onondaga wampum belts
Onondaga wampum belts
meaning of the Onondaga wampum belts
The flag of the Iroquois represents the Hiawatha wampum belt.
The belt is comprised of thirty eight rows, having a heart as a great tree in the center, on either side there are two squares, all are connected with the heart by white rows of wampum. The belt is the emblem of unity among the Five Nations.
The first square on the left represents the Mohawk Nation, Keeper of the Eastern Door.
The inner square on the left, nearest the heart represents the Oneida Nation. The white tree in the middle represents the Onondaga Nation. This tree also means that the heart of the Five Nations is single in loyalty to the Great Law of Peace. The Great Peace is lodged in the heart, meaning that the Haudenosaunee council fire is to burn at Onondaga, serving as the capitol of the Haudenosaunee. It also means that the authority is given to advance the cause of peace. The inner square to the right of the heart represents the Cayuga Nation. The last square, the one furthest to the right represents the Seneca Nation, known as Keeper of the Western Door.

 The claim Nelson voted to cut Medicare another ‘half – Truth’

WESH 2 NEWS ANCHOR
 GREG FOX WITH THE TRUTH TEST.
The claim that Nelson voted to cut Medicare is mostly false.
Yet another lie by Governor Rick Scott

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —
https://pasileylfloridanews.blogspot.com/2018/11/the-claim-that-nelson-voted-to-cut.html
A political claim ad Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson voted to cut Medicare and raise taxes.
The ad from the New Republican PAC says Nelson has been running for office almost as long Rick Scott has been alive.
According to WESH 2’s Truth Meter, the claim that Nelson voted to cut Medicare is mostly false.
The claim is tied to votes in 2011 when then-President Barack Obama was wrestling with Republican leadership over the nation’s rising debt.
The “sequester” in 2011 laid out a series of automatic spending cuts in the Budget Control Act.
Nelson voted for the measure.
Analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that the result would be a reduction in Medicare payments by up to 2 percent, but also called it a bipartisan compromise.
Later, in 2013, Nelson again supported a budget resolution, also supported by nine Republicans to lower the federal debt.
It temporarily reduced Medicare payments for some stays in long-term care, according to Kaiser Family Foundation, but was projected to increase Medicare spending by approximately $3.5 billion between 2014 and 2023.
The Truth Meter also said the claim that Nelson raised taxes with his votes is also false.
The Scott campaign is adding votes on nonbinding resolutions.
None of those votes change tax law.

It’s also counting multiple votes on the same tax bills.
“What has he ever done anyway? I can’t think of one thing,” the ad continues.
According to congressional records, Nelson has sponsored and passed into law 25 bills and GovTrack lists him as the third-most “centrist” Democrat in the Senate.
According to our findings, Nelson is expected to vote for the president’s agenda 56 percent of the time.

WEBVTT HERE IS GREG FOX WITH THE TRUTH TEST. >> THESE POLITICAL ADS, HAVE YOU SEEN THIS ONE? GREG: YEP, WE’VE SEEN IT. THAT’S DEMOCRATIC SENATOR BILL NELSON. >> BILL NELSON HAS BEEN RUNNING FOR OFFICE ALMOST AS [O] LONG AS I HAVE BEEN ALIVE. GREG: IT’S FROM THE NEW REPUBLICAN PACK. IT’S RUN BY HIS CHALLENGER, GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT. HERE ARE THE TWO MAIN CLAIMS. >> HE HAS CUT MY MEDICARE AND RAISED TAXES. GREG: LET’S BRING IN THE WESH 2 NEWS TRUTH METER. THE MEDICARE CLAIM IS MOSTLY FALSE. HERE IS WHY. IT’S TIED TO VOTES IN 2011 WHEN THEN PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WAS WRESTLING WITH REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP OVER THE NATION’S RISING DEBT. THE SEQUESTER LAID OUT A SERIES OF AUTOMATIC SPENDING CUTS IN THE BUDGET CONTROL ACT. NELSON VOTED YES FOR THE MEASURE. ANALYSIS BY THE KIZER FAMILY FOUNDATION FOUND THAT THE RESULT WOULD BE A REDUCTION IN MEDICARE PAYMENTS BY UP TO 2%, BUT ALSO CALLED IT A BIPARTISAN COMPROMISE. LATER IN 2013, NELSON AGAIN SUPPORTED A BUDGET RESOLUTION ALSO SUPPORTED BY NINE REPUBLICANS TO LOWER THE FEDERAL DEBT. IT TEMPORARILY REDUCED MEDICARE PAYMENTS FOR SOME STAYS IN LONG-TERM CARE BUT WAS PROJECTED TO INCREASE MEDICARE SPENDING BY APPROXIMATELY 3.5 BILLION. ON THE RAISE TAXES CLAIM, THAT’S BEEN REPEATED IN ADS AND BY SCOTT HIMSELF DURING THE SENAT DEBATE CLAIMING HUNDREDS OF HIGHER TAX VOTES. THE TRUTH METER CALLS THOSE CLAIMS FALSE. THE SCOTT CAMPAIGN IS ADDING VOTES ON NONBINDING RESOLUTIONS, NONE OF THOSE VOTES CAN CHANGE TAX LAW. IT’S ALSO COUNTING MULTIPLE VOTES ON THE SAME TAX BILLS. >> WHAT HAS HE EVER DONE ANYWAY? >> I CAN’T THINK OF ONE THING. GREG: ACCORDING TO CONGRESSIONAL RECORDS, NELSON HAS SPONSORED AND PASSED INTO LAW 25 BILLS AND GOV TRACK LISTS HIM AS THE THIRD MOST CENTRIST DEMOCRAT IN THE SENATE. JUST TAKE A LOOK AT HIS CONGRESSIONAL VOTING HISTORY. THAT’S NELSON RIGHT THERE JUST LEFT OF THE MIDDLE. NOW CHECK OUT THE 538 WHICH COMPARED NELSON’S VOTING HISTORY WITH REPUBLICAN DONALD TRUMP, A LOT OF VOTES IN WHICH NELSON SIDED WITH THE PRESIDENT AND ACCORDING TO THE ANALYSIS HERE, NELSON IS EXPECTED TO SUPPORT TRUMP’S AGENDA 56% OF THE TIME. IT’S ALSO WORTH NOTING THE THREE ACTORS IN THE AD ARE WOMEN, THE LATEST POLL ON THE SENATE RACE SHOWS WOMEN BACK THE D

Native American Gate keeper?

http://mysmudgingblog.blogspot.com/2012/02/native-american-gate-keeper.html
I have little to no knowledge about the ‘Native People’ of your city/state; however it does not matter for this post.


I only write, while writing about the Native Americans of by village (Uncasvillage) and about good and bad politics.
Your beliefs are your beliefs and therefore ‘good blessing from Creator’
As far as ‘Traditional Native Americans’ are concerned, ‘Good Politicians’ care for ‘Creators creation’, ‘Bad Politicians only care about themselves’!
https://mysmudgingblog.blogspot.com/2018/11/ocean-springs-mississippi.html
For, going on 78 years Creator blessed this old native with ancestors that lived their lives in praise and prayers to Creator for blessings from Creator.
I am now challenged to keep our ancestors teaching alive in print, no matter how poorly I do this!
So Thank-you for your visit my new friend!
This is one more posting.
Native American Gate keeper?
08/07/2012
This question has been coming up many times?
The words Gate keeper is an occult religious word used in Shamanism ceremonies.
These religious organizations worship another god, most have more than one god!
There was, is and should never be a “Gatekeeper” in a true traditional Eastern Woodland Native American Ceremony!
If this is what you are interested in then there are many websites and bloggers willing to help you in your quest.
However, if you are interested in an answer about a true traditional Eastern Woodland American Native ceremony, like our Gatherings, Paw-paus and Sacred Powwows, our people never use the words gate keeper!
This would be an insult to Creator!
The person at the East, the only place to enter and exit out gatherings, is a Spiritual leader or one of his or her students, there only to help you understand our ceremonies!

Welcome to one of our postings condemning our political setup in this state/country.
I do not like posting angry statements however;
As the old saying goes
If it looks like a duck, smells like a duck, walks like a duck and swims like a duck, one can safely say,
‘It is a Duck’!
In this case, a corrupt system!

I still remember the good friends and beautiful sites I as a teenager just off of my

reservation/village,

was able to gather into my memories of the trips to your country while in the navy back in the 1960’s.


Because of my ancestors, I would take a taxi at the end of the pier and have the driver spend the day visiting places native to his country that he likes.

There is only one way to stop ‘Robocalls’

There is only one way to stop ‘Robocalls’
We must never forget, it cost spammers time and money to ‘Not get you on the Phone’!
This morning on WESH 2 News was a shot (Fighting Robo Calls), at ‘Robo -calling’ (Spammers).
(1)– Do not answer the phone!
(2) –Download a Call Blocking App!
(3) –Do your research!
This home phone has been using Number one and Number three for over two years, and more important, ‘Political Spamming have slowed down to a trickle’!
The fun part is when spammers get so upset that they, every once in a while, get a little snotty to your machine!
However, we told all of our family, friends and other important calls to ‘Leave a message’ on our answering machine!
You will get a call back if you are not a spammer.
It is not easy at first to
‘Not answer your phone’.
However, it gets easier as time goes by and your phone rings less and less every day!
Still once in about 300 calls someone you wish to speak with will not leave a message.
Oh Well!
This is when Number Three comes into play, look up the number on your phone!
Today we are averaging about 3 calls a week.
Spammers have now learned how to by-pass an answering machine and get to ‘Voice Mail’
So what just stick to number one and number three and use number two if you wish?
https://mypoliticalopinionblog.blogspot.com/2018/10/there-is-only-one-way-to-stop-robocalls.html
This week 35 state attorneys general issued a joint letter (PDF) urging the federal government to step up efforts to fight illegal robocalls. They called on the Federal Communications Commission to further strengthen rules to let telecommunications service providers block certain categories of robocalls, specifically spoofed calls. “Spoofing” allows scammers to disguise their identities, making it difficult for law enforcement to bring them to justice. Just about everyone has received spoofed calls: You see an incoming call from an unknown phone number that carries your area code, and sometimes even the next three digits of your phone number, in an obvious ruse designed to trick you into answering.
“Virtually anyone can send millions of illegal robocalls and frustrate law enforcement with just a computer, inexpensive software, and an internet connection,” the attorneys general wrote in their comments to the FCC.

Rick Scott protecting pre-existing conditions?

Rick Scott protecting pre-existing conditions?
NO!
Tue, Oct 23, 2018
Republican senate candidate Rick Scott, who as governor of Florida is currently
suing
https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2018/06/13/gov-rick-scott-wont-talk-about-floridas-part-in-obamacare-lawsuit
to end the federal requirement that insurance companies must cover pre-existing conditions, released a heartwarming new ad today saying he’s in support of


*squints at notes*
covering pre-existing conditions.
https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2018/10/23/rick-scott-is-all-about-protecting-those-sweet-sweet-pre-existing-conditions-baby
Last June, Democrats in the state’s congressional delegation sent a letter to Scott, asking him to withdraw the lawsuit. “If successful, this dangerous lawsuit that you and Attorney General Bondi have joined will harm roughly 130 million Americans, including 7.8 million Floridians, who have a pre-existing condition,” the Democratic lawmakers wrote. “And it will take us back to a time when health insurers oftentimes outright rejected, or offered severely limited coverage to, Americans with such conditions.” Obviously, Scott didn’t respond. 
https://pasileylfloridanews.blogspot.com/2018/10/rick-scott-protecting-pre-existing.html
Switching sides on an issue to save face is classic Rick Scott. He pulled this same little maneuver last September, tweeting that only he will save Medicare, despite he and his Republican colleagues vowing to gut the program and replace it with the old “private voucher” scheme.

The Trump era has many Democrats in a panic, but Pelosi inhabits a more cheerful reality. She is convinced that America has hit bottom, has seen the error of its ways and is ready to put her back in charge.
