So called “fact checking” websites refuse to debunk, confirm, or even so much as mention PJ Media’s alleged “evidence” that Ilhan Omar married her brother in order to commit immigration fraud

Ten months ago, I wrote the following:

I’m publicly asking the Washington Post to please either confirm or debunk PJ Media’s “evidence” that Ilhan Omar married her brother in order to commit immigration fraud

PJ Media is a right wing website. It’s not considered to be part of the mainstream media, and you certainly can’t cite it as a source when adding content to wikipedia.

That being said, I am a long term reader of PJ Media, and I tend to view most of what it publishes as being credible. I certainly don’t have anything against the website.

PJ Media has published what it claims are photographs, school records, and other documents which, when taken together, “prove” that Ilhan Omar married her brother in order to commit immigration fraud.

You can read these PJ Media articles and look at their “evidence” here, here, here, here, and here.

I don’t know if these alleged photographs, school records, and other documents are real or fake.

If they are real, then the public deserves to know.

If hey are fake, then whoever created them deserves to be sued for defamation.

As far as I know, Omar has not filed any defamation lawsuits regarding these alleged photographs, school records, and other documents.

I am publicly asking the Washington Post to please investigate these alleged photographs, school records, and other documents, and either confirm or debunk the claim that Omar married her brother in order to commit immigration fraud.

So far, the only thing the mainstream media has been willing to report is that Omar says she never married her brother.

But I don’t care what Omar says.

Instead, I want to know if this “evidence” is real or fake.

As far as I can tell, even though many of the so-called “fact checking” websites have written about the claim that Omar married her brother, none of them has been willing to debunk, confirm, or even mention any this alleged “evidence” from PJ Media.

The Washington Post, PolitiFact, Snopes, the New York Times, Media Matters, Mother Jones, the Daily Beast, and many other so-called “fact checking” websites have written articles about the claim that Omar married her brother.

However, none of those articles debunks, confirms, or even mentions this alleged “evidence” presented by PJ Media.

What is the purpose of even having a “fact checking” website if it doesn’t even acknowledge the kinds of claims being made by PJ Media?

I think that deep down inside, these “fact checking” websites are worried that PJ Media’s “evidence” might actually be true, and this is why they won’t even so much as mention PJ Media’s claims.

PolitiFact repeatedly changed its rating of Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance, based on how many Presidential elections he still had left

PolitiFact is a left wing organization that rates the truthfulness of statements made by politicians. Regarding Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance, PolitiFact has given out three different ratings.

In October 2008, when Obama still had two Presidential elections coming up, PolitiFact rated his statement as “true.”

In June 2012, when Obama only had one more Presidential election coming up, PolitiFact rated his statement as  “half true.”

In December 2013, when Obama could no longer run for President ever again, PolitiFact rated his statement as “lie of the year.”

In all three of these cases, PolitiFact was rating the exact same statement. So why did they keep changing their rating? The best explanation that I can think of is that as Obama had fewer and fewer Presidential elections coming up, they were willing to be more and more accurate in their ratings. So only when he was no longer able to run for President again, were they finally willing to admit the truth about his statement.
