NOT REAL NEWS: A look at what didn’t happen this week

Quote:
A roundup of some of the most popular, but completely untrue, headlines of the week. None of these stories are legit, even though they were shared widely on social media. AP checked these out; here are the real facts:

NOT REAL: Trump’s Top Scientist Pick: “Scientists Are Just Dumb Regular People That Think Dinosaurs Existed And The Earth Is Getting Warmer”

THE FACTS: A story on the satirical U.S Political News website hijacks an actual news story about Sam Clovis, widely reported to be President Donald Trump’s pick for a U.S. Department of Agriculture research job, infusing it with made-up quotes expressing skepticism about scientists who believe in evolution and climate change. The fabricated quotes are attributed to KYXL, a non-existent radio station. The original story, by ProPublica, pointed out that Clovis had none of the research, education and economics qualifications specified for the position.

____

NOT REAL: ICELAND PAYING IMMIGRANTS $5,000 PER MONTH TO MARRY THEIR WOMEN

THE FACTS: A story that began circulating last year claims Iceland is paying foreigners to marry women because women far outnumber men in the island nation. A spokeswoman for the country’s embassy in Washington says the story is untrue. Iceland’s official statistics agency reported last year that the split between males and females is close to 50/50.

I have heard that is true, but you would have to live there.
As wonderful as it looks in the movies, I have also heard that it ain't such a fun place from October to May.
Kinda horrific, in fact.

I agree. It's one of the few places that I've visited, and enjoyed, where I didn't think "I'd like to live here".

NOT REAL: President Trump Moves To SHUTDOWN JIHAD TRAINING CAMPS In AMERICA - ISLAMBERG IS FINISHED


THE FACTS: Several widely shared articles report on last month’s arrest of 64-year-old Ramadan Abdullah after a police raid found a weapons cache in a storage locker in Union in upstate New York. The raid was ordered by state police, not President Donald Trump. And the town of Union is more than 40 miles from Islamberg, a tiny enclave in the Catskills founded decades ago by Muslim families who moved from New York City. Sites sharing the piece include topsecretleaks.com and freedomdaily.com, which bills itself as the conservative news headquarters.

___

NOT REAL: The 14 Fake Olive Oil Companies Are Revealed Now - Avoid These Brands

THE FACTS: The story from healthylivingthread.com cites a University of California study in stating that “almost 70% of olive oil on the American market is somewhat non-genuine.” It goes on to suggest that olive oils in the U.S. market are being diluted with sunflower and canola oils. In reality, the 2010 UC-Davis study found that 69 percent of samples taken from 14 brands of imported extra virgin olive oil on sale in California failed to meet extra virgin standards. The study didn’t find canola or sunflower oils present in the samples.

And more in depth on the Bog One -
(wow!)
This could be HUGE... including Politically motivated Murder and espionage and corruption with a foreign intrigue angle.
I'm amazed that it has no thread of it's own yet.

The Awan's are mentioned in the OP link of my recent thread "Where the Scandals Really Are" - http://www.armchairgeneral.com/forum...d.php?t=178645

Since this is far from flattering to the Democrats/Liberals we can expect the "usual suspects" would not want to present or discuss it. It detracts from Trump bashing.

NOT REAL NEWS: A look at what didn’t happen this week

Quote:
NOT REAL: Charlottesville Killer Was Hillary Supporter, Funded By Soros

THE FACTS: James Fields, who’s charged with murder after police say he drove his car into a Charlottesville, Virginia, crowd last weekend, supported President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, his former teacher told the AP. GoFundMe confirmed that it removed “multiple campaigns” to raise money for Fields; none were started by billionaire George Soros, who has been a frequent target of hoax sites. The stories shared by YourNewsWire and other sites claim Fields’ arrest is part of a “false flag” aimed at sparking a civil war.


___

NOT REAL: President Trump Fires All 14 Muslim Federal Judges

THE FACTS: There aren’t any Muslims on the federal bench and the president has no authority to fire federal judges. Abid Qureshi, a Washington, D.C., attorney, was nominated last year by former President Barack Obama to be the first Muslim federal judge, but he wasn’t confirmed by the Senate. The hoax story by a site named As American As Apple Pie and shared by others also claimed Trump used the “evacuation clause” to remove the judges. There is no such clause that is part of federal law.
