Fox News Engages In Horrid Reporting!!!! Essentially Accuses Hobby Lobby Of Dealing With ISIS ………. Before ISIS Existed!!!!!

This is typical of our LSM.  And, yes, Fox is now very much a part of our LSM.  They lie, obfuscate, and intentionally mislead their readers.

To be fair, maybe this is indicative of “Science” writers, rather than members of our LSM. 

So, Fox had this today …..

Obama nemesis Hobby Lobby probed for allegedly buying black market biblical items

As the world’s foremost collector of rare biblical artifacts, Steven Green may have made a deal with the devil – helping to preserve Iraq’s disappearing Christian heritage by allegedly buying black market items plundered by the Islamic State.

Green, whose family-owned Hobby Lobby company clashed bitterly with the Obama administration over federal health care laws that required it to cover reproductive services, is being investigated by Customs & Border Protection reportedly for attempting to smuggle as many as 300 age-old cuneiform tablets from Iraq into the U.S. via Israel, labeling them “tiles.” It was not clear if the probe centers on Green, the company, or both, but the shipment was reportedly addressed to Hobby Lobby headquarters in Oklahoma City.

The tablets, which The Daily Beast reported are thousands of years old and inscribed with text used in ancient Assyria and Babylonia, were seized by Customs agents in Memphis, Tenn., in 2011, but were on their way into Green’s collection of the “rarest and most significant biblical texts and artifacts ever assembled” including “cuneiform tablets dating from the time of Abraham, Dead Sea Scroll fragments, biblical papyri and manuscripts, Torah scrolls, and rare printed Bibles.” …..

Look, I’ve no idea if the transaction was proper, or, if there is a story here.  It may very well be that Green was trying to do something shady, or illegal.  His motivations can’t be known by me, but, I hope his were of great intent.  I fully support the preserving of such artifacts. 

So, so far, I don’t really have a problem with the article, other than its inciting lead. 

The problem I have with the article is that it later mentions “ISIS” six times and “ISIL” twice …… ISIS and ISIL being synonymous.  The intent of the verbiage, while not specifically stated, is to imply that the Greens dealt with ISIS to buy the artifacts.   That’s a problem.  The problem being ISIS didn’t exist in 2011.

Did Green deal with some of ISIS’ predecessors?  Perhaps.  We absolutely have no way of knowing this.  Neither does Fox.  Indeed, there are no indications that they did.  All of this is simply complete and utter conjecture.  What we know is that some artifacts, presumably purchased by Green, we’re taken by Customs for an investigation. 

Shame on Fox, the editors and writers.  They are intentionally misleading their readers.

On a sad aside, just reading the latest comments, no one mentions that ISIS didn’t exist in 2011.  God help us!

    Swedish government makes it illegal to know where asylum centres are located. (At the same time, the tax declaration of everyone is public in Sweden!)

    “We have decided today that where asylum centres are located will from now on be classified information,” Johanna Uhr, a spokeswoman for the agency, told The Telegraph. “We will no longer be sending out any lists of locations.””

    Die-hard madness.

    James, your readers might be interested in One America News Network. It’s a privately-owned network that takes no advertising and that also seems to find a way to place a truth-speaker like Graham Ledger in the same time-slot as Bill O’Reilly. For those that subscribe to Verizon, OANN can be found on channel 116. Watch and be educated from a truthspeaker that seems to know his Bible.

    Graham Ledger is far more kick-ass and truthful than Roman Catholic funded O’Reilly (and his Faux News network) . He’s a Martin Luther Christian that nails his 98 theses to the door of the phonies he embarrasses from 8:00 PM EST to 9:00 EST. When Graham’s show is done, I switch back to Faux News to watch Megan. At least that gorgeous truth-speaker does her best to speak the truth!

    I thoroughly enjoy Ledger’s sign-off that adds to his substance: “Even when I’m wrong, I’m right.”
    You might, as well.

    Hm, if these were indeed bough from Daesh or affiliates, then these were saved from sure destruction… (btw. I read somewhere that IS/ISIS/ISIL hates this name – Daesh – given to them in the region so am using it…).
    So pfew, very lucky tiles/tablets…. Tell me FOX what Daesh would have done with these if not sold?
    Just look what those deluded barbarians deed to the treasures in the Mosul museum or Palmyra ruins?

      Interestingly despite constant rumors of looting in German supermarkets, and one shop having to hire security and only let 2 migrants at the same time in, German police and all other authoritiers constantly denounce any such thing happening anywhere in Germany.

      They do admit though that just recently a dune coon threatened a supermarket employee with a Machete. It was too extreme to be covered up.

      As no crime happened, (threatening someone with a Machete is a funny prank as long as you’re a migrant) he faced no consequences other than being moved to a different village.

      All German authorities are acting as traitors at the moment. That includes all of the media.

    Cuniform tablets have nothing to do with Christian heritage.
