FACT CHECK: President Trump Has Acknowledged the Historical Slaughter of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire

The fake news is claiming that Trump is denying the Armenian genocide.

The Trump administration is being widely accused by the fake news of refusing to acknowledge the Armenian genocide at the behest of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

In actuality, President Trump has acknowledged the historical slaughter of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire. He has not changed his position based on a resolution that was passed by the Senate acknowledging the Armenian genocide last week.

“The position of the Administration has not changed,” said White House spokesperson Morgan Ortagus in a statement to the Hill. “Our views are reflected in the President’s definitive statement on the issue from last April.”

Trump said during Armenian Remembrance Day on April 24 that 1.5 million Armenians were “deported, massacred or marched to their deaths” starting in 1915 by the Ottoman Empire. He did not refer to the incident as a genocide, but never denied that the slaughter in fact occurred.

The resolution that acknowledges the Armenian genocide was passed in bipartisan fashion last week in the Senate, with Republican and Democratic Senators applauding the effort to recognize the gruesome historical event that the Turks want to minimize. The resolution had previously passed the House in October.

“I’m thankful that this resolution has passed at a time in which there are still survivors of the genocide who will be able to see that the Senate acknowledges what they went through,” Sen. Bob Melendez (D-NJ) said on the Senate floor.

“This is the third week in a row we have come to the Senate floor seeking to pass this resolution, and I’m grateful that today we have succeeded,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said as the resolution was passed. “This is a moment of truth that was far too long coming.”

The resolution reads in part as follows:

That it is the sense of the Senate that it is the policy of the United States—

(1) to commemorate the Armenian Genocide through official recognition and remembrance;

(2) to reject efforts to enlist, engage, or otherwise associate the United States Government with denial of the Armenian Genocide or any other genocide; and

(3) to encourage education and public understanding of the facts of the Armenian Genocide, including the role of the United States in humanitarian relief efforts, and the relevance of the Armenian Genocide to modern-day crimes against humanity.

Erdogan is livid about the passage of the resolution, and vows to punish the U.S. for acknowledging his country’s role in some of the most ghastly atrocities in history.

“We should oppose [the US] by reciprocating such decisions in parliament. And that is what we will do,” Erdogan said while appearing on the A Haber news channel.

“Can we speak about America without mentioning [Native Americans]? It is a shameful moment in US history,” he added.

President Trump is in a tough position with Turkey being a key strategic ally and a NATO partner. Still, reports from the fake news media that Trump is denying the Armenian genocide are inaccurate, as the President has in fact acknowledged the mass slaughter of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire.

New York Times Claims Churches are ‘Major Source’ of COVID-19 Infections…Despite Accounting for Only 0.02% of Cases

This is a war on Christianity.

Published

on

The New York Times published an article on Wednesday that claimed, “Churches Were Eager to Reopen, Now They Are a Major Source of Coronavirus Infections.”

“More than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the United States since the beginning of the pandemic,” the Times claims, “with many of them erupting over the last month as Americans resumed their pre-pandemic activities.”

Reason Magazine performed an analysis of the claims made by the Times and found they were complete bunk. Only 0.02% of cases have come from churches, an infinitesimal percentage, but the fake news targets churches while giving a pass to leftists who are rioting and looting nationwide.

“The number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the United States is now 3.1 million, meaning the church-related cases identified by the Times account for 0.02 percent of the total. On the face of it, that does not seem like “a major source of coronavirus infections.” And there are something like 385,000 churches in the U.S., so the ones tied to COVID-19 infections represent around 0.01 percent of Christian congregations,” Reason Magazine wrote.

Reason Magazine noted that the article from the Times is bigoted against Christianity and serves as propaganda against religious worship. The Times claims that COVID-19 “has struck churches that reopened cautiously with face masks and social distancing in the pews, as well as some that defied lockdowns and refused to heed new limits on numbers of worshipers.”

“The issue is whether churches can reopen with an acceptable level of risk by following the same guidelines that apply to other settings where people gather for extended periods of time. By implying that precautions don’t really matter, the Times is sending a dangerous message to Americans, many of whom are already weary of social distancing rules and disinclined to wear masks,” Reason Magazine wrote.

Big League Politics has reported on how Christian pastors have been charged with crimes for holding services during COVID-19 mass hysteria:

Another Christian pastor is being charged with crimes for holding church services during the coronavirus lockdown.

Mark Anthony Spell, a Central, La. pastor, is receiving six misdemeanor charges for disobeying Gov. John Bel Edwards’ emergency shutdown edicts after he held church services this past weekend.

“Over the last two weeks I have worked with the sheriff, state police, the state fire marshal, Reverend Tony Perkins, and others to address this matter outside of legal action. Mr. Spell made his intentions to continue to violate the law clear. Instead of showing the strength and resilience of our community during this difficult time, Mr. Spell has chosen to embarrass us for his own self-promotion,” said Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran, who issued the misdemeanor summons to Spell.

“Mr. Spell will have his day in court where he will be held responsible for his reckless and irresponsible decisions that endangered the health of his congregation and our community. This is not an issue over religious liberty, and it’s not about politics. We are facing a public health crisis and expect our community’s leaders to set a positive example and follow the law,” he added.

Spell has allegedly convened six unlawful church services at his Life Tabernacle Church hosting more individuals at his worship proceedings than what is allowed by the state. East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore said Spell is receiving a misdemeanor count for every time he allegedly violated the edict. They will not charge everyone who gathered unlawfully at the church but will attempt to make an example of Spell because “encouraged others to violate” the law.

The Left has used COVID-19 to punish Christians, as they exploit the crisis to punish hurt enemies and gain illicit control.
