Last year, newly elected Rep. Duncan Hunter of CA went on Fox News with Greta Van Sustran, and stated with a very straight face, that TEN ISIS fighters were caught crossing the Mexican border in Texas.
Excited that ASTRONOMICALLY BREAKING NEWS may have just been divulged on her show, Greta did the rare act of journalism on Fox News, and asked him a follow up question. “How do you know that?” she asked. “Because I’ve asked the Border Patrol, Greta.”
The Department of Homeland Security quickly called him a liar. Well, not in those exact terms:
“The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the Southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence of the facts on the ground.” – D.H.S.
Duncan wasn’t going to let “liberal facts” steal his thunder, so he doubled down.
He then started telling random reporters that he received his information, not from the border patrol anymore, but from a… *come close, so I can whisper*… “secret source” –shhh – .
He kept promising to a handful of reporters that this “secret source” had more details to give him. Secret knowledge, that apparently slipped under ALL the other national security agencies radar. And, for whatever reason, that source provided this critical knowledge to a freshman Congressman, and not the Intelligence Agencies. And would CONTINUE to provide Duncan Hunter, and Duncan ALONE, this information. And Duncan would be providing this information, NOT to the Pentagon, but to the press.
Well… he never provided his source. And further details never came. But the “source” is still around, and now works for Ben Carson!
During Tuesday’s Republican debate, Ben Carson did his very best to convince the Republican party that he knows foreign policy by stating that China… as WELL as Russia… has a military presence in Syria. China…
THIS IS BREAKING NEWS!!!
Since when did CHINA deploy forces in Syria?!? And for what purpose?!?
Given a chance to flesh out this ground breaking story the next day, Carson sleepily told reporters, “China has been trying to extend its influence not only throughout the Middle East, but throughout Africa, and in several locations. And their interest extends into that region as well. I would have to refer you to some other people to get you the actual data, but they’ve shown it to me.”
When asked about just who the hell “they” are, Carson’s top staffer, and disgraced ex right wing media pundit Armstrong Williams (seriously, THIS is the guy Ben Carson hired to head his Presidential campaign) , told MSNBC host Tamron Hall, “From your prospective, and what most people know (including all National Security Agencies), maybe that is inaccurate. But from ‘our own intelligence’, and what Dr. Carson’s been told by people who’re on the ground, who’re involved in that region of the world, it has been told to him many times, over and over, that the Chinese ARE there.”
THE “SECRET SOURCE” RETURNS!!! And apparently, he has a TEAM now, thus explaining the “they”.
“What did he mean by involved?” replied the visually bemused National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, when asked if China was “involved” in Syria at a press conference in the White House Thursday. “Unless you’re talking about having a diplomatic presence, I’m not sure what he’s referring to” she concluded.
This “secret” agent, that keeps dishing out classified information to random national republican figures, must be VERY convincing, because Reverend Dr. Ben Carson is NOT backing down!
“I have several sources that I’ve got material from, I’m surprised my sources are better than theirs.” Carson said at a town hall event today.
Okay. All kidding aside.
You see, Ben, the thing about THIS kind of lie is, it’s NOT going away. Not so long as you’re running for President of the United States, and remain a front runner.
It was easy for Duncan Hunter’s obvious lie to fade into obscurity, because he’s a freshmen Congressman, and he already won his election a year prior. YOU ARE STILL RUNNING! FOR PRESIDENT!
Republicans voters! If he will blatantly lie, with a straight face, about something as stupid as this… you think if elected he wouldn’t lie with a straight face about something SERIOUS?!?
This ISN’T hard to grasp!
COME ON, PEOPLE!
