A Challenge to Christians Who Believe That The Message Of Jesus Is About  Grace, Love, Integrity, and Peace for ALL.
Democratic Party
Could GOP bill targeting abortion require IRS "rape audits"?
The GOP-controlled House did approve, then later remove a bill, that would require rape victims who claimed a medical expense deduction for an abortion, to explain the deduction to the IRS only if her return were audited for some other reason, and only if medical expense deductions came into question.
Rush Limbaugh
Wisconsin is "one of the bluest" states, but under Scott Walker its unemployment rate "is around 3.5%."
Wrong on both points. Wisconsin has voted for the Democratic nominee in the last seven presidential contests, but it is a frequent battleground state and far from being an automatic in the Democratic column. State Government is Republican, but mixed. Unemployment dropped to near 6 percent, under Walker.
Louie Gohmert R TX
"Eighty percent of Wall Street executives and their spouses' donations go to Democrats."
The exact opposite pattern has held for Wall Street donations during the past three election cycles. In addition, Gohmert overstated his source's percentages and ignored the difference between donations to Democratic presidential candidates and congressional candidates.
Matt Drudge Conservative Talk Show
Drudge Report says embattled "Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald "Sterling is a Democrat."
County records show that he is a registered Republican and has been for many years. His donations to Democrats took place two decades ago and were modest even by the standards of that time.
Democratic Party
Virginia Democratic Party says Virginia House Republicans are sacrificing $5 million a day in U.S. funds by refusing to expand Medicaid.
As many as 400,000 Virginians could become eligible for Medicaid under Obamacare, and the U.S. would pay their entire health care costs through 2016.   But the $5 million-a-day figure comes from an old state estimate. Updated data shows loss of $3.5 million a day for the 2014 budget year, and about $4.5 million a day during the following budget year.
Bill Cassidy LA GOP
"Only after news broke that our veterans are dying because of inadequate health care did Harry Reid and Senate Democrats take action."
Republicans are the ones who blocked an expansive veterans’ bill that included funding for the same 27 new clinics that Cassidy and the House passed last December.
Barack Obama
How does the deficit and spending compare in Bush and Obama administrations?
Charts from Budget of the United States Government: Historical Tables Fiscal Year 2015 show spending by Bush increased 88%, while spending increased only 3.78% under Obama.  Deficit increased to $1.4 trillion under Bush.  Under Obama deficits have been reduced by about half to $.6 trillion.  We have gone from losing around 850,000 jobs a month under Bush, to gaining over 200,000 jobs a month under Obama.
How has the size of the Obama government compare to that of recent Republican administrations?
Presidents Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II all dealt with recessions by growing the government and increasing local and government jobs.  But under Obama federal, state, and local government has declined by more than half a million workers in the last three years.
Ted Cruz Rep Tx
Republicans shut down Ted Cruz
Though Cruz insists he does not want a government shutdown, some of his Senate colleagues say that’s where his plan would end up.
Barack Obama
Obama: 'We're spending millions for each individual' held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
The Pentagon has reported that Guantanamo’s cost comes down to about $3 million per detainee per year -- about 100 times the average annual cost of a federal prisoner
Rudy Giuliani Ny R
Giuliani: Says President Barack Obama has said "that everybody should hate the police."
The truth is Obama has continuously encouraged working with police to find solutions and has also repeatedly emphasized the importance of law enforcement and the fact that police officers have a dangerous job.
Amy Klobuchar Cnn State Of The Union
"We're now the No. 1 producer of oil in the world. We've surpassed Saudi Arabia."
The latest global oil production statistics back up Klobuchar’s claim. The United States has been the world’s largest oil producer since late 2012.
Chain Email
New tax increases that went into effect on Jan. 1, 2015, "all passed under the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare."
The email is flat-out wrong when it blames Democrats, and Obamacare for the increases. The bulk of the tax hikes stem from a different bill entirely -- one that received support from a large majority of Senate Republicans and a significant minority of House Republicans.
Democratic Party
The DNC said that "Bush not only opposes marriage equality, he’s said he ‘personally’ believes gay couples should be banned from adopting children."
While in office, Bush repeatedly said that he opposed gay marriage, although he was reluctant at times to amend the state Constitution since it was already banned in state law. He also opposed gay adults adopting children. Since leaving office, Bush said that he supports "traditional marriage,".
Mark Warner D-VA
Regarding sexual assault against women, "It’s actually safer not to be in college than it is to be in college."
Warner says women students on college campuses are more likely to be sexually assaulted than their peers who don’t seek a higher education. The researchers acknowledged shortcomings with their methodology and said their conclusions were "suggestive."
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
Says President Barack Obama has "not proposed one thing that would change" the fact that Warren Buffett pays a lower tax rate than his secretary.
In fact, Obama has on multiple occasions proposed changing the tax code so that it complies with the "Buffett rule," which attempts to ensure that high-income people pay a certain percentage of their income in taxes that is at least higher than what middle-class people pay.
Elizabeth Warren Sen Mass
"The average family not in the top 10 percent makes less money today than they were making a generation ago."
According to one measurement, the bottom 90 percent of American earners had a lower income in 2012 than they had 30 years ago. She’s arguing that middle-class wages haven’t increased enough over the past couple decades.
The CIA paid two psychologists $81 million "to develop and run their torture program."
The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report confirms the amount of money was spent on  a variety of things between 2005 and 2009, and other news organizations revealed the actual names of the two men, but additional information is needed.
Marco Rubio
Marco Rubio: Hillary Clinton as President would be a 'Death Blow' to the American people.
Statements were made in an interview with Katie Couric for Yahoo News, saying Clinton's policies are "20th century relics." It was not clear what issues he considered relics. He opposes gay marriage, addressing climate change, many women's issues.
Randy Weber R-tx
Republican Congressman known for making bombastic statements, compares Obama to Hitler.
"Even Adolph Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn't do it for right reasons," Weber said in a tweet, referring to Germany's occupation of Paris in 1940.  White house says that presidential aides were caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention, and there was no time to schedule security.
John Boehner
'Ask The Senate Democrats When They're Going To Get Off Their Ass.'
The House passed a $30 billion funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, but added unrelated amendments to limit Obama's executive actions on immigration. Republicans have conceded that the bill can not pass in the Senate, yet they are willing to hold up Security funding in order to thwart immigration reform--then blame Democrats.
Texas Democratic Party
Rick Perry failed to "partner with the Legislature to find a Texas solution to closing the insurance coverage gap."
It’s safe to say around a million Texas adults fall into the coverage gap for making too little money to qualify for insurance subsidies and also remaining ineligible for Medicaid unless Texas expands access as encouraged by the Obamacare law and rejected by Perry and the state’s ruling Republicans.
Rush Limbaugh
Says "Ted Kennedy sent a letter to then Soviet leader Yuri Andropov apologizing for Ronald Reagan and begging the Soviets not to overreact."
There is no evidence there ever was a letter from Kennedy. Limbaugh’s statement rests on a 1983 KGB memo that said there was a verbal overture from a friend of Kennedy's to meet with Andropov. 
Rand Paul
Says according to recent polls, no Republican candidate "is doing better against Hillary Clinton than myself."
The truth is the big picture shows that any Republican candidate matched up against Clinton getting approximately 40 percent of the votes. 
Mitt Romney
Says Hillary Clinton "erased all of her emails even though they were subject to recall and review by Congress."
Romney got it wrong when he spoke of all of her emails. 30,000 emails were turned over to the State Department. Clinton did respond to congressional subpoenas, and there is no proof she destroyed evidence subject to a congressional investigation.
Reince Priebus
Says Hillary Clinton took "money from kings of Saudi Arabia and Morocco and Oman and Yemen."
The monarchies of Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Oman have contributed to the Clinton Foundation, but Yemen, which does not have a king, has not. The foundation did indeed receive money, not Clinton herself.
Ted Cruz Tx
Ted Cruz Jokes About Joe Biden, As Biden Grieves For His Son
Cruz made a crass and poorly timed joke about Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday, days after Biden's son Beau died from brain cancer. "Vice President Joe Biden. You know the nice thing? You don't need a punch line," Cruz said.
Hillary Clinton
Democrats wage a national fight over gerrymandering and restrictive voting rules.
Democrats allied with Hillary Rodham Clinton are mounting a nationwide legal battle seeking to single out voting laws in Texas, Florida, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio and Wisconsin that limit participation, especially among minorities, the poor and younger voters, who disproportionately cast their ballots for Democrats.
Hillary Clinton
"The stock market does better when you have a Democratic president in the White House."
The numbers back Clinton up, but it’s worth noting that luck, timing and several other factors in the broader economy also play a role in determining stock market performance.
Bernie Sanders Vt Senate
Bernie Sanders won the debate, and perhaps the Election, when he defended Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton was defending herself against email allegations, when Bernie Sanders came to her rescue. He not only demonstrated the decency that is the hallmark of his campaign, but also proved that he's no ordinary politician who doesn't want to win the White House if it means losing his integrity. He's willing to protect even his political rival if it's in the name of justice.
Chris Christie
Christie said the Democrats plan "to raise your tax rates to 70 or 80 percent."
None of the three Democrats running have proposed raising taxes except of the very rich, and there is no reasonable evidence that they would.  Hillary says she wants to raise taxes on only those making over $250,00 per year.
Hillary Clinton
Clinton says most minimum-wage workers are "women."
According to the study by PolitiFact, 62.7 percent of minimum wage workers age 16 and older are women. That’s almost, but not quite, two thirds.
Ted Cruz Tx
Cruz says the "Democratic Party is getting smaller and smaller and smaller."
Democrats have lost a significant number of seats and federal and state offices throughout the Obama administration. The party as a whole, however, is stable or has grown both in terms of the electorate and its party organizations.
Bernie Sanders Vt Senate
Climate change is "directly related" to the growth of terrorism.
PolitiFact couldn’t find any evidence of a "direct" relationship between climate change and terrorism, though many reports have noted an indirect link. There are, of course, many other factors that contribute to terrorism, including religious and ethnic tensions and political repression.
Bernie Sanders Vt Senate
Sanders says "500,000 troops came back with PTSD and traumatic brain injury."
No firm numbers exist for the number of veterans who have returned from America’s most recent conflicts with post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injuries, but Sanders’ claim of 500,000 does fall within the range of estimates provided by the VA and other sources.
Donald Trump
Trump says Obama administration is pushing refugees toward states with governors who are "Republicans, not to the Democrats."
The numbers found by PolitiFact show that Democratic-led states recently received almost as many refugees as -- and by some calculations, even more refugees than -- Republican-led states on a per capita basis.
Ted Cruz Tx
Cruz : "Here’s the simple and undeniable fact: The overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats."
Cruz misquoted a study of voting registration of all felons (not just violent felons) after being released from prison in three states. It does not address their political choice when committing the crime.  Less than half registered to vote after release, and most of those were Democrats.
Hillary Clinton Presidential Candidate
Candidate Honesty Report Card" Hillary Clinton-Mostly True
As of 2/1/16, PolitiFact evaluated 149 statements made by Hillary Clinton.  Fifty Three percent were found to be true or mostly true.  Twenty Eight percent were found to be mostly false, or false. and only one was pants on fire.
Bernie Sanders Vt Senate
Candidate Honesty Report Card: Bernie Sanders
As of 2/1/16, PolitiFact evaluated fifty two statements by Bernie Sanders.  Fifty one percent were found to be true or mostly true. Seventeen percent were half true. Thirty percent were mostly false or false. and no statements ere found to be pants-on-fire.
Hillary Clinton Presidential Candidate
Hillary said, "We now do have evidence" that Donald Trump is being used as a recruiting tool for terrorists.
That wasn't the case the first time Clinton claimed this. But now two different terror groups have used Trump's words in propaganda videos.  In one case jihadist propaganda, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. urges American Muslims to leave the United States and join ISIS.
