Fake News “Journalists” And Their War on Maine GOP Candidates

10/30/18, Maine First Media Staff Report,

Reade Brower’s Fake News Empire is getting desperate.

The last several days they’ve ratcheted up their attacks on Maine First Media, Rep. Larry Lockman and his Maine First Project non-profit organization, Sen. Eric Brakey and other Maine-first candidates for state legislature.

In fact, it seems in the mind of Maine’s “journalists” if you’re against open-borders you must be a white supremacist.

Before we break down what seems to be an organized attack by Reade Brower’s media monopoly — let’s clear the record.

All of Reade Brower’s newspapers claim to be unbiased and non-partisan.

Maine First Media openly admits to reporting from a conservative-populist point of view. Unlike Maine’s lying, dying Fake News outlets, we’re not pretending to be, “just the facts ma’am.”

We are following in the great tradition of journalism that goes back to the founding of this country. During the Revolutionary War, there were Patriot papers and Loyalist papers. During the struggle to ratify the Constitution, there were Federalist papers and Anti-Federalist papers.

If Reade Brower would come out and admit to Mainers his papers are in the tank for Democrats and Socialists in Maine — we’d have zero problems with them. It’s the lie of being “unbiased” that presents the problem.

Some more facts for you.

You’ll notice in the attacks against Maine First Media; there is a lot of citing of old stories. Maine First Media was sold in October of 2017. Anything from before that was posted by someone who hasn’t been associated with Maine First Media in any way shape or form for about one year.

We’ve consistently challenged the Fake News Outlets to point out “racist,” “conspiratorial,” or “white supremacist,” stories posted by Maine First Media over the past year. They’ve come up with zero, but continue to label our small media outlet — and anyone who has ever spoken to us — as bigots, Holocaust deniers, and conspiracy theory chasers.

Maine First Media is none of those things. Maine First Media believes policies in Maine should put Mainers before all others. We believe it is immoral to spend the tax dollars of hard-working Mainers on recruiting and giving handouts to so-called, “new Mainers,” while there are life-long Mainers who have been left behind by the special-interests driven politics at the Coliseum on the Kennebec.

And one more time — for the record — Maine First Media is NOT Rep. Larry Lockman. Although, we do agree on the best direction for Maine and appreciate his fight to put Mainers first!

With all of that out of the way — let’s look at the seemingly coordinated campaign of attacks from Reade Brower’s Fake News Empire the last several days.

First up, we have Sen. Eric Brakey, who is challenging Democrat-in-Disguise, King Angus.

Brakey seems to have seen the light on immigration and has put out a series of recent tweets campaigning for America-first immigration policies.

Read for yourself if anything racist was mentioned in any of those tweets. Did Sen. Brakey say anything that could reasonably incite violence?

Well, the Opinion Editor for the Portland Press Herald threw objective journalism out the window when commenting on the liberty Republican’s tweets.

Racist, anti-immigrant, fear mongering? For suggesting Democrats support open-borders because they need the votes in light of the failure of Socialism? Those dots don’t connect.

Kesich has a long history of pushing for the Leftist agenda in Maine while wielding editorial power at PPH. Don’t take our word for it, you can read through his columns here.

Kesich is also in favor of censoring conservative speech.

But Kesich — who’s boss is Maine media mogul, Reade Brower — wasn’t alone in making phony attacks against the GOP candidate for Maine’s U.S. Senate seat.

Andy O’Brien of The Free Press jumped on the Thought-Police bandwagon.

O’Brien is a former Democrat State Legislator. He was far-Left during his time in the Swamp of Augusta, and he’s just as radical as the Managing Editor of the Free Press — a paper owned by, once again, Reade Brower.

The Journo-Activist is suffering from a bit of an obsession with Maine First Media and Rep. Larry Lockman — who O’Brien has speculated on multiple occasions operates Maine First Media (he doesn’t).

O’Brien is allergic to facts — consistently getting information wrong, or misquoting sources. And the above tweet is no different.

Nowhere in our expose on the Democrats effort to change the political landscape of Aroostook County with an imported foreign workforce did we say Puerto Ricans were not U.S. citizens. But the social justice agitator never lets facts get in the way of his Leftist narrative.

Gab has been in the news because the Synagogue Shooter used the social media platform. A question to ask is, have any killers ever used Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube? Gab has been at least temporarily shut down.

O’Brien attempted to “never let a tragedy go to waste” by linking Maine First Media to Gab.

The tweet from O’Brien was the first we had heard of Maine First Media even having a Gab account. Anything that’s been posted to the account has not come from Maine First Media.

We were curious to see if the account was active. So, we tried to go to the Gab site and find the account and see what the latest posts were — you’ll notice O’Brien didn’t “expose” any of them, making us think there probably haven’t been any posts (or whatever they’re called on Gab) in a LONG time.

When we arrived at the Gab page, we noticed the site was down. Curious — how long was O’Brien sitting on that image and waiting for the right moment to try and smear Maine First Media?

You’ll also notice it’s a logo and branding we haven’t used all year long — on any of our social media pages.

Once O’Brien made the makebelieve connection to Maine First Media and Gab, he started sharing ancient stories — from the previous ownership team — trying to paint us as conspiratorial white supremacists (we’re not). Important to note, O’Brien is aware that Maine First Media changed hands about a year ago.

And because Maine First Media has — and will continue to — shine a spotlight on George Soro’s negative influence in Maine, O’Brien insists Maine First Media must be anti-semitic. However, if you follow us on Twitter, we’re clearly not and have even lost some followers because we’re not (good riddance). We should point out, Israel has also called out Soros for his funding of a radical globalist agenda — does that make Israel anti-semitic?

This is all an attempt to paint good public servants in a negative light.

We question whether O’Brien has even watched or read the materials he’s attacking. At no point did anyone he mentioned say anything racist.

Guy LeBida spoke to Maine First Media about better treatment for Maine’s elderly, disabled and veteran population, improving the quality of education in the state, reforming welfare and expanding broadband in rural Maine.

Among other things, Nancy Colwell spent her Maine First Convo time talking about the need to end Female Genital Mutilation in Maine.

Along with disagreeing with us about the Candidate Welfare program, Matt Stone explained to Maine First Media what it’s like to be a gay Republican, how working with Open-Borders Angus turned Stone into a Republican, how to fix the broken referendum system and energy innovations.

Rep. Paula Sutton has contributed to Maine First Media about the problems with Ranked Choice Voting and the need to fix the abused referendum system.

Rep. Beth O’Connor has contributed op-eds about lowering energy bills for Mainers and the dysfunction at the Coliseum on the Kennebec.

And then we have Rep. Larry Lockman. O’Brien’s obsession with Lockman is creepy, bordering on clinical.

O’Brien got his hands on the ORIGINAL op-ed written by Lockman back in 1990 that has been the cause of so much controversy. He says it “emerges.” Guess who put it out there. Rep. Lockman! This nearly three-decade-old misquote has been taken out of context for the last several years.

If you read the full column, you can clearly see Rep. Lockman is not saying rape is justified, he’s arguing abortion is just as bad as rape. In fact, Rep. Lockman is in favor of the death penalty for rapists. Is O’Brien? If not, does that mean he’s a “rape apologist”?

In the next picture, O’Brien’s fear of facts rears its ugly head once again. The Leftist “reporter” claims Maine First Project endorsed Mary Mayhew for governor. We checked with our friends at Maine First Project to see if that was true because we didn’t remember an endorsement. We should note, calling Maine First Project is more than O’Brien has ever done for any of his hit pieces against the conservative-populist advocacy organization.

Maine First Project Executive Director, Zach Gelpey, says they issued no endorsements in the gubernatorial race. However, they did point out to supporters Mayhew’s stance on immigration. The picture of Rep. Lockman and Mayhew was taken at a political function they both attended.

These are all facts O’Brien could have easily obtained with a simple phone call — however, accurate reporting isn’t O’Brien’s objective, smears that stick are more his aim.

Meanwhile, Rep. Paula Sutton is being attacked by her local paper.

In the Village Soup, Lefty reporter, Stephen Betts wrote a long piece complaining that Rep. Sutton wouldn’t speak to him for a feature on her race.

But according to Rep. Sutton, she did offer to submit written answers — that way she could have the evidence when Betts misquoted her, something he has a history of doing.

In fact, Maine First Media has previously reported on Betts’, lazy at best and dishonest at worst, reporting.

Rep. Sutton was unwilling to let Betts continue to lie and mislead readers about her record. She took a stand against corrupt “journalism” in Rockland. Betts is just mad he didn’t get another chance to slander the Representative.

It should go without saying at this point; the Village Soup is owned by — you guessed it — Reade Brower. We have to ask the question, is Reade Brower’s Fake News medial monopoly healthy for a Republic than depends on an educated electorate?

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

  • I was suggested this website through my cousin. I’m now not sure whether this post is written via him as nobody else realize such designated
    approximately my trouble. You are incredible!
    Thanks!

  • It seemed like a reach at the time, particularly with Haskins still on the board and the Giants also holding the No. 17 overall selection. Given how atrocious Manning was last season, it might not be long until Jones is thrown into the fire.

  • Heya! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours require a massive amount work?
    I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings
    online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring
    blog owners. Appreciate it!

  • 5/10/2019 I’m pleased by the manner in which mainefirstmedia.com covers this type of topic! Usually to the point, sometimes controversial, consistently well-researched and challenging.

  • Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite
    justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed
    while people think about worries that they plainly do
    not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks

  • Fantastic beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend
    your site, how could i subscribe for a blog site?
    The account aided me a acceptable deal. I had been a little bit acquainted of
    this your broadcast provided bright clear concept

  • Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to
    be running off the screen in Internet explorer.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks
