Thorner/O’Neil: US Patriots: Beware of election misinformation

Media sources and political candidates on the Left seeking favorable political positions, are spewing inflammatory rhetoric about their opponents, throwing out accusations rather than said facts to get your attention.

If you want a preview of what the DNC is planning to do, just listen to what they accuse Trump of doing.

President Trump has obviously become an object of their negativity, foremost to create a feeling of distrust with voters in the upcoming November 3rd election.  Have you ever wondered how our foreign enemies might use the inflammatory statements and insinuations from the Left to our nation’s disadvantage? 

The Atlantic’s outrageous claim
The Atlantic recently published an article claiming that President Trump believed the servicemen who died in war were “losers and suckers.” It has since been proven fake, but even after been debunked, few media sources have called attention to this outrageous method of political maneuvering.
While many Americans likely know not to take anything too seriously when stated during a political campaign, that cannot be said for all people, especially hard-nosed Democrats who are fed daily a steady stream of lies and distortions of the truth.
Woodward’s book claim
Consider Bob Woodward’s newest book “Rage” claiming our President lied about COVID-19….and did not provide enough public warnings.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany countered Woodward's claim stating our “President's actions proved he stayed calm and in perfect control, so that the public would be driven to unwarranted fear which could easily result in utter chaos throughout our states and in our cities.” 
Like any wise leader, President Trump's actions and words reflected the facts.  Stated with calm authority, Trump indicated that our nation could and would respond to the crisis — a virus that was later found to have escaped into China from a Chinese laboratory and subsequently spread to our American shores and countries throughout the world.
Although the appointment by President Trump of Dr. Anthony Fauci, US director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to the Covid-19 Task Force has become somewhat controversial in some circles because of Fauci’s contradicting statements advising citizens almost daily on television and radio about all aspects of the Coronavirus, Fauci did defend Trump when Trump was criticized for his lack of response to the virus by citing on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2020: "The President could not have done anything more about COVID-19 than he did.”
Fauci's statement, while many on the Left worship the very ground Fauci stands on, should have silenced anyone who considered engaging in a disinformation campaign.  But with the election looming on the horizon, the Left is hard pressed to give Trump credit for anything.  President Trump should be congratulated for his efforts that proved effective in that the virus is being contained.
At a time when many Americans are frightened about getting Covid-19, what are the real chances of dying if you should be infected with COVID-19?  The CDC’s new estimate for the first time is broken down by age groups.  Most likely you will be surprised at how low the chances are according to new numbers from the Center for Disease Control.
Long, hot summer of violence
Democrats’ refusal to denounce a wave of violence shows they are complicit as a party of hate.  During the long, hot summer of fear and hate, the streets of many American cities have been taken over by violence criminals and thugs.  The video of a Minneapolis cop's brutalizing of George Floyd served as the catalyst for an explosion of looting, rioting, and domestic terrorism.
To this day not one Democrat leader has denounced any of the mayhem.  Their silence makes it clear they are complicit in the organized thuggery.  At the same time there is also a concerted effort to dismantle and defund the nation's police.  The big lie by the Left is that ANTIFA and Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter rioters are "peaceful" and simply exercising their constitutional rights.
As to the positions of  Democrat candidate for president, Joe Biden, and vice president candidate, Kamala Harris, in this video, Biden says Police Have Become the Enemy and Calls for Defunding the Police.   
Might this summer be but a warm-up for what is coming should President Trump overcome cheating by Democrats to wins re-election?  It is already being said that President Trump will not commit to a peaceful transfer of power, when for four years Democrats have refused to accept Trump as the legitimate and duly elected president of this nation.
Appointment of Amy Coney Barrett
The latest controversy for Trump lies in his appointment of 48-year-old Circuit Court Amy Coney Barrett on Saturday, September 26, 2020 to fill the Supreme Court vacancy. 
Even in advance of Trump's expected SCOTUS nomination in the Rose Garden, Democrats attacked Justice Barrett.  HBO’s Bill Maher was among the most vociferous in his condemnation of the Christian mother of seven children, two of whom are adopted from Haiti. She has one child with Downs Syndrome.
Also in advance of Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination by Trump to become the next Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court were Democrat smear attacks on Barrett’s two adopted children.      
Now the hate will begin from the Left, because Amy Coney Barrett holds conservative opinions, she unabashedly lives out her faith, and she is being nominated within just weeks of the presidential election. If the past is any judge, the nomination hearing for Judge Barrett promises to be more of a spectacle than a hearing, even though our Constitution states: "Court of appeals judges, and district court judges are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate.”
A Fight for Our Live
A large portion of the malicious arrows and accusations against President Trump are coming from a group called Defeat Disinfo. Defeat Informa believes that Trump and his enablers have gotten a free pass on all their lies and deceptions for the past four years  and have developed a straightforward and sophisticated way to fight his lies, hold him accountable, and kick him out of the White House this November. 
The undeniable truth is that we are in a new arena of political battles, making it essential that we as voting citizens stay alert and double check what seems odd and/or appears to be fake news from leftist news and media reports and by organization that are being  supported by George Soros and other billionaire leftist/socialists.
Following is Judge Jeanine Pirro's opening statement on her September 27, 2020 program on Fox News which augments what the American people must keep in mind when voting.
“We are in the fight of our lives.  It is a fight between good and evil, truth and lies, freedom and anarchy, law and order, and the future of the greatest experiment in democracy, the United States.  President Trump's nomination today of Amy Coney Barrett — a brilliant scholar, jurist, constitutional texturalist, mother of seven, with an unblemished reputation will cement the conservative leaning of the court for decades to come.  This alone will put the left over the edge.”
Biden’s Weaknesses Buried by Left
Even before Trump took the oath of office, Democrats attempted to throw out whatever possible against President Trump to see what, if anything would stick.  To the great consternation of Democrats, nothing has worked to remove Trump as President, not ever Obamagate, a coup to remove Trump from office.
In that Trump is still being maligned daily with negative and malicious information spewing from Biden's campaign and Leftist print and media sources, reflects a desire by the Left to keep Americans from hearing about Joe's weak areas and instead focused on Trump and his perceived misdeeds.  We all have witnessed Biden's recent problems and his lackluster appearance when he does speak in public, especially his memory lapses, a definite sign of dementia.
Although many voters disgusted with the negative political climate will not buy into the lies and misinformation being circulated about President Trump, Democrat voters, more often than not, have been brain washed to believe whatever they see and hear.  There are also those so troubled by the whole process that they simply won't vote at all.
That the President's opponents are now trying to use reverse psychology to make President Trump a scapegoat, rather than his deserved hero status, may prove to be a mistake.
Warning to Voters
When Biden was asked during an interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle on Saturday, September 26th how he would combat Trump’s repeated claim that he was pushing a socialist agenda, the former vice president didn’t mince words: “Sort of like Goebbels.”
At one time references to Nazism were condemned by all parties. The Democrats seem to have exhausted epithets hurled against the President.  All rules of decorum have now been abandoned by Democrat/Socialists.
It is therefore of utmost important for those of us who are paying attention to encourage those within our sphere of influence to check facts and vote wisely.  The survival of our nation to remain a Constitutional Republic depends upon electing the best people possible. 
May this dire and very disturbing warning by a retired CIA officer of September 16, 2020 not come true for this nation in the aftermath of November's election:  “The Left's Marxist revolution isn't concerned about who wins the November election.”
