Who fact-checkers the fact-checkers?
Why anyone trusts the “fact-checkers” baffles me. While it is true that there are fact-checkers who are ostensibly unbiased, the truth remains that these organizations are run by human beings who act according to their own personal convictions. Furthermore, when placed in the context of the broader conversation, fact-checkers invariably come down on one side of the political spectrum or the other. There is no neutral ground.
What fact-checkers really do, is provide people cheap confidence that their ill-formed, ignorant perspectives are backed by ideologically driven propaganda. I know it sounds like I’m not being “nice” — but aren’t we passed the point of playing nice with people who continually attack, insult, and degrade anyone who disagrees? They call us names, deplatform, shadow ban, and attempt to ridicule and marginalize anyone who questions the common narrative.
Both sides claim they have the facts — and they both have fact-checkers to back them up. Obviously both sides cannot be right. Thus, it would behoove anyone who values commonsense and critical thinking, to exercise discernment and decide for themselves which facts are true, versus which facts are fiction. But, rather than expound on the epistemology of truth, I pick on a recent fact-checking article that claims:
“No, food-plant fires aren’t attempt to create food shortages.”
Well that’s reassuring, isn’t it? Dozens of fires at food processing facilities across the country, sparked in a pattern of consistent intervals, do not mean there is some malicious intent to interrupt food supply chains. Since there is no evidence that any of this is related, it’s all just coincidence.
Coincidentally, these fires also coincide with the murder of more than 24 million chickens over the last couple months (because of the bird flu), the US pork industry panicking over African Swine Fever, beef and dairy producers not getting enough grain to feed their animals, and farmers not being able to get the fertilizer they need — all because of suspiciously targeted reductions in rail delivery.
Keep in mind, all of this comes at a time when the president is telling us that food shortages are “Gonna be real“.
Setting all this disturbing news aside for a moment, let’s get back to the fact-checkers. We are told that the food-plant fires are not an attempt to create food shortages. Sure. Maybe. How could one argue against that or prove some malicious plot to starve the American people? Trying to do so would sound like the ravings of a lunatic. But still, the concern over our food supply is very real, and serious questions remain.
So, let me ask a pointed question: Who’s paying for the facts presented?
It may (or may not) come as a shocking surprise, but funding for the International Fact-Checking Network comes directly from left-wing institutions like Facebook, Google, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Environmental Defense Fund, and George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, among many others. (To see the full list of donors, jump to page 88 in this tax filing for the progressive Poynter Institute.)
So the fact-checkers, who tell us the string of fires are not an attempt to create food shortages, are being funded by globalist organizations that are actively warning about food shortages. I’m sure that too is just a coincidence.
Meanwhile, even the mainstream media is starting to pick up on the suspicious patterns, and the implications for the American food supply chain. Others note that it’s not food shortages that are coming, pointing out the current shortages are going to evolve into chronic shortages of hundreds of products before the end of the year.
So, here’s another prickly question: Are you prepared?
If you cannot simply go to the store and get more food — or you can’t find any baby formula — what are you going to do? What are you going to do when your stomach starts to growl? What are you going to do when you can’t feed your crying baby? What are you going to do when the threat of starvation becomes an actual reality? Are you prepared?
To close, I want to acknowledge how disturbing all this can be. It should be disturbing. If there is even the slightest possibility that any of this is intentional, it deserves some major attention. Why would anyone do such a thing? To wrap our head around the reason, we need only to zoom out and consider the Great Reset. Could this all be part of the plan?
Let your heart decide.
