Rush Limbaugh
Limbaugh: 'Some of the wealthiest Americans are African-American now'
Of the top 400 wealthiest Americans, exactly one is African-American, Oprah Winfrey -- that’s 1/4 of one percent. Also, no other African-American is really all that close to breaking into the Top 400.

Ferguson Officer Photo
Graphic image claims to depict Ferguson, Missouri police officer, Darren Wilson, gravely injured following an altercation with shooting victim Mike Brown.
This photo, which was attached to the email, is not of allegedly battered Officer Darren Wilson, but rather of now-deceased motocross rider Jim McNeil who was killed in an accident in 2011.
Texas Politics
Texas politics. Check the truth about 200 political claims in this hot Texas election.
Many hotly contested Texas races produced many false claims on both sides of the isle. Check out if your candidate is telling the truth.
Rudy Giuliani, NY R
"The conviction rate is almost exactly the same" for whites and blacks who commit murder.
There was no statistical evidence to support Giuliani’s claim,and even if there was statistical evidence it would have been cherry-picking data.
Chain Email
Says a man in Ferguson, Mo., was photographed holding a sign that said, "No mother should have to fear for her son's life every time he robs a store."
The viral photo of a Ferguson protester was Photoshopped.(It is blatant lies like this that incite the prejudice --that creates the violence.) The real picture says, "No mother should have to fear for her son's life every time he leaves home."
Greg Abbott Tx Gop
"My wife is going to be the first Hispanic first lady in the history of Texas."
Cecilia Abbott, with Hispanic roots through her mother and grandmother, will be the first Hispanic first lady since statehood. Other Hispanic women were first ladies only before Texas was a state.
Legal Issues
A Ferguson grand juror sues, accuses prosecutor, Bob McCulloch of mischaracterizing what happened in the jury room, and wants the right to speak out.
The American Civil Liberties Union has filed the suit for an unnamed juror to lift a lifetime gag order regarding the case. A juror disagrees with what has been revealed by McCulloch and feels the jury was ill informed. Legislators have asked for a review to see if McCulloch "manipulated" the grand jury. 
John Legend
"We live in the most incarcerated country in the world."
The United States far and away incarcerates more people than its peers, in terms of the portion of its population behind bars, despite having a comparable amount of crime.
Stop Discrimination
Department Of Justice investigation finds Ferguson police routinely discriminate.
The city relies heavily on ticketing practices to generate revenue for the city. Between 2011 and 2013, African-Americans made up 95 percent of those charged with improper “manner of walking in roadway,” 94 percent of those charged with “failure to comply,” and 92 percent of those charged with disturbance of the peace. Blacks account for just 67 percent of the city's population.
Lou Dobbs Fox Pundit
Because of President Barack Obama’s failure to "push job creation," the black unemployment rate in Ferguson, Mo., is three times higher than the white unemployment rate.
First and foremost, Dobbs’ numbers are off. The most recent and best available statistics say the black unemployment rate is 1.9 times higher than the white unemployment rate in Ferguson (16 percent to 8.5 percent). Second, that has little to do with Obama.
Brian Kilmeade Fox News
Says Colorado food stamp recipients can use ATMs to get cash to buy marijuana.
The technology behind government electronic benefit cards blocks that. While the card could have cash value from another program such as TANF, no ATM would dispense cash based on a person’s food stamp allowance.
Megyn Kelly Fox News
Fox News says racist or offensive emails are "normal" in businesses in America.
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow was outraged that Fox News normalized discrimination in Ferguson's police department and municipal court. She reviewed the outrageous racist emails circulated among Ferguson officers on the job, then showed clips of Fox News' Megyn Kelly saying such offensive emails were common.
Rudy Giuliani Ny R
Giuliani says, Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson Should Be 'Commended' For Shooting Michael Brown.
Giuliani attacks the Justice Department's scathing report of racial bias within the Ferguson Police Department, claiming that there was little evidence to prove racism within the department. On the contrary, most people can see plenty of evidence in the report.
Barack Obama
Five things President Obama wants to discuss with Pope Francis when the pontiff comes to DC.
1. Poor And Marginalized Populations; 2. Environmental Stewardship; 3. Religious Freedom; 4. Economic Opportunity; 5. and Immigration Reform.
Ann Coulter
Coulter states "America has already taken in one-fourth of Mexico's entire population."
Coulter, a conservative social and political commentator, based this statement on a study that counted all people of Mexican origin in the US. But Coulter ignored that 65 percent of those were born in America and about a third came from families in which both parents were born in America.  America couldn’t "take them in" because most have been here for generations.
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.
Steve Doocy Fox And Friends
Fox, Steve Doocy claims the Charleston shooting is an attack on faith, not race—calls for pastors to arm themselves.
Charleston Mayor Joe Riley said, "Hate is the only reason someone would walk into a church and shoot people who were praying."  But Fox News, Doocy says that the murder of nine people at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina is really an attack on faith. The gunman allegedly told the victims before the shooting, "You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go."
Cornell William Brooks- Naacp
Mr. Brooks, President and CEO of NAACP, says "We have at least 200,000 to 300,000 hate crimes in a given year."
PolitiFact researched by looking at the National Crime Victimization Survey does confirm his claim, with a 2012 report finding nearly 300,000 estimated victims of hate crime.  
Hillary Clinton
Clinton says "You can vote in Texas with a concealed-weapon permit, but a valid student ID isn’t good enough?"
Rick Perry, the state’s governor into 2015, signed a law that a federal court said was actually written with the purpose of discriminating against minority voters.
Bernie Sanders Vt Senate
Sanders says "A black male baby born today, if we do not change the system, stands a one-in-three chance (of) ending up in jail."
This calculation, according to PolitiFact, is 14 years old, and changes in the underlying data suggest that the actual odds of incarceration may be somewhat smaller today. Still, other evidence suggests that blacks have a disproportionate likelihood of ending up in prison.
Hillary Clinton
American schools are "more segregated than they were in the 1960s."
The United States has taken two steps forward and one step back, but hasn’t quite reverted to pre-Civil Rights levels of segregation. Hillary has a strong point that the country has fallen back from the high levels of diversity that existed from the 1970s to the early 1990s.
Bloggers
Did Abraham Lincoln plan to send ex-slaves to Central America after the Civil War?
 Lincoln did not envision forced deportations of ex-slaves. Voluntary colonization was effectively dead by the time the Emancipation Proclamation was issued on Jan. 1, 1863 -- more than two years before Lincoln’s assassination.
Gavin Mcinnes
Gavin McInnes, co-founder of Vice Media, says "50 percent of murders in Texas have been linked to illegal aliens."
There were 3,384 homicides in Texas for the three years between 2011 and 2013, compared to an estimated 584 murder charges involving undocumented immigrants over a period stretching nearly four years.That’s nowhere near half, despite counting an additional year of murder charges involving undocumented immigrants.
Donald Trump
"Hundreds of thousands of (illegal immigrants are) going to state and federal penitentiaries."
PolitiFact found that in 2013, there were fewer than 100,000 noncitizens -- legal and undocumented -- in federal and state prisons. Though it’s also possible that many of these individuals are held for immigration violations as opposed to other crimes.
Hillary Clinton
Says Jeb Bush "doesn't believe in a path to citizenship. If he did at one time, he no longer does."
At times, Bush has supported a path to citizenship, and at other times he hasn’t. He has said he might support a path to citizenship if it could make it through the political process.
Jimmy Carter
Former President Jimmy Carter said in a recent interview that he thinks Jesus would approve of gay marriage.
"I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else, and I don't see that gay marriage damages anyone else," Carter said in a HuffPost Live interview with Marc Lamont Hill published Tuesday.
Donald Trump
"The Mexican government forces many bad people into our country."
There is no evidence of any Mexican policy that pushes people out of Mexico and into the United States. As it has been the case for decades, a combination of economic and family factors accounts for most of the migration from Mexico to the United States.
Jim Wright Ex-speaker
New voter ID laws in Texas restrict minorities and elderly, even the former speaker of the US House.
Ninety year-old ex-speaker of the US House, Jim Wright, no longer drives, and his faculty ID card from TCU, where he teaches, so he doesn't meet requirements to vote without a special affidavit. Even Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Sen. Wendy Davis had to get an affidavit in order to vote under the new laws.
Ben Carson GOP Candidate
GOP Candidate, and neurosurgeon, Ben Carson, got most Google hits on these points in the debate.
"There is no such thing as a politically correct war."  "The skin doesn't make someone who they are."
Cory Booker D-nj
Booker: Every day we see and hear lawmakers and people of 'faith' using the word of God to hurt others.
Don’t speak to me about your religion; first show it to me in how you treat other people.
Don't tell me how much you love your God; show me in how much you love all His children.
  Don't preach to me your passion for your faith; teach me through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
Black Lives Matter
The practical, thoughtful and urgent policy agenda put forward by Campaign Zero to support Black Lives Matter.
1. End Broken-Windows Policing; 2. End Policing for Profit; 3 .Limit Use of Force; 4. Demilitarization; 5. Body Cams/Film the Police; 6. Improved Training; 7. Community Oversight; 8. Community representation; 9. Fair Police Contracts; 10. Independent Investigations and Prosecutions.
Lgbt
A county clerk in Kentucky, who was married three times, is in contempt of court for continuing to refuse to issue marriage license to a gay couple.
In spite of a Supreme Court ruling on 8/31/15 saying that county clerk, Kim Davis, could not deny a marriage license to a gay couple, she continued to refuse saying she was guided by God's authority.  There was no explanation about how God condoned her three marriages.  The ACLU plans to levy fines.
Bernie Sanders Vt Senate
Saunders says, "African Americans are twice as likely to be arrested and almost four times as likely to experience the use of force during encounters with the police."
A criminologist’s analysis of the 2013 data does show that blacks are twice as likely to be arrested as whites.  Blacks are about three times as likely to experience force during encounters with police.
Donald Trump
Says Mexico doesn't have birthright citizenship, and Americans are the "only ones" to have it.
Anyone born on Mexican soil is considered Mexican by nationality, regardless of whether their parents are Mexican. No one in Mexico is considered a "citizen" by the country’s Constitution until he or she turns 18. The United States and Mexico are joined by more than 30 countries around the world, predominantly in the Americas, that offer birthright citizenship.
Voter Supression
Blatant Alabama voter suppression is challenged.
Alabama's only Democratic member of Congress is requesting the Justice Department investigate the state's decision to close 31 driver's license offices in poor, rural, mostly-African American communities.  Since they started requiring a drivers license to vote the move could curtail the voting rights. (Note: Gerrymandering and voter suppression is UN-Christian!)
Lgbt
Federal report calls for end to 'Conversion Therapy' for LGBT youth.
The Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration performed the first in-depth federal look at conversion therapy and concluded that "none of the existing research" supports that gender orientation can be changed.  Conversion Therapy has resulted in many suicides.
John Henson Nba Milwaukee Bucks
Milwaukee Bucks' John Henson was a victim of racial profiling at jewelry store.
Henson was humiliated when he went to Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers in Whitefish Bay, Wisc. to purchase a watch. The staff saw him coming, locked the doors and hid in the back. Police officers questioned him and ran his plates.  The only reason for the drama was his race.
Lawrence Lessing, D
Larry Lessig: "Black Lives Matter" movement is a response to tyrannical "Taxation Through Citation" system
Political activist, Harvard law prof. and Democratic Presidential candidate said that America's "fundamental inequality" disempowers people, and "life is not respected, so you are actually risking your life to be a black person driving in certain areas."
Carly Fiorina
Fiorina says 'Obamacare isn't helping anyone'
Tens of millions of Americans have truly benefited from the ACA, in big ways (such as securing insurance for the first time) or smaller ways (paying less for drugs under Medicare Part D).
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.
Donald Trump
June Trump Truthfulness average is "Mostly False."
As of June 10, 2016, PolitiFact has reviewed 154 statements by Donald Trump. Twelve (12) were true or mostly true. Forty nine (49) were 1/2 True of Mostly-False.  And Ninety three (93) were False or Pants-on-Fire. Below are just a few:
Pope Francis
Pope Francis says Church should apologize for discriminating against gays, and ask for forgiveness.
Francis recalled Church teachings that homosexuals “should not be discriminated against. They should be respected, accompanied pastorally.” He clarified if a gay person has good will and looks for God, who are we to judge? Read what Jesus said.
