The president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, went on Tony Perkins’ radio show and the two of them told a couple of major lies. This is the group that broke the entirely fake story about a terrorist training camp just over the Mexican border. The first lie:
This weekend, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins spoke with Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, about the allegations, and Perkins announced that “authorities have confirmed” the group’s report about an ISIS base a few miles south of El Paso, Texas.
Actually, authorities have done exactly the opposite: The U.S. Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Northern Command, the Texas Department of Public Safety, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and the Mexican government have all denied Judicial Watch’s report. Reporters who have visited the location of the supposed ISIS base have also found no evidence at all of it existing.
By “authorities,” of course, Perkins means the voices in his head. And the second lie:
Fitton nonetheless told Perkins that Judicial Watch’s research is so reliable that the group actually recently prevented a terrorist attack from occurring in the U.S.
“There was going to be an imminent attack around September which we reported, I think it was averted as a result of our report,” Fitton said, before acknowledging that DHS and other agencies have denied his group’s account of an ISIS border camp.
Hmm. That report came out last week, yet somehow it managed to prevent a terrorist attack 7 months ago? Wait, I know what happened. Obama used that time machine invented by George Soros, the one that was used to go back in time to 1961 and plant those fake birth announcements in two Hawaiian newspapers to make it look like he was born in the United States. That’s damn clever.
