It's actually more of the fact that you keep running off at the mouth and still haven't disapproving anything that was in the report
Keep talking about how you hate the right wing and anything that comes out of the right wing yet you cannot disprove the information
So really your whole argument is invalid
Not only that you look ignorant for dismissing information off hand just cause you don't like the source

Eight solid years of Evil Muslims crossing from Mexico?
They wouldn't seem to be particularly dangerous, then.
The report is from Judicial Watch, a conservative media website, and it claims that "Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices," citing several anonymous "high-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources."
We couldn’t find any other media outlets that independently verified the story, and no federal officials would corroborate its claims, either.
Without knowing anything about Judicial Watch’s sources -- such as rank or agency -- it’s hard for us to assess the article’s credibility. In an interview with PolitiFact, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton would not go into any further detail.
The article says the Department of Homeland Security did not respond to their multiple requests.
We asked Homeland Security about the threat in Juarez, and they said, "There is no credible intelligence to suggest that there is an active plot by (ISIS) to attempt to cross the southern border."
The claims by Judicial Watch of an "imminent" attack "coming very soon" were made on 31 August 2014, and Hunter's statements came more than a month later. No such attack or confirmed attempt to cross the border by members of ISIS occurred in the intervening weeks between the "bulletin" and Hunter's appearance on Fox News to substantiate beliefs that ISIS either had crossed or had intended to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.
No reports of any arrests matching the claims made by Hunter or Judicial Watch materialized in the time the rumor has been circulating, and it seems safe to say at this remove that the 36-hour timeframe has come and gone without incident.
Judicial Watch similarly claimed in an April 2015 article that "ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas," "in an area known as 'Anapra' situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua." This information is apparently unknown to every source other than Judicial Watch, as several federal law agencies involved with border security said the report is unverified, and that it is unlikely that ISIS is in Anapra or Juarez, Mexico.

Guess that means ATS is nothing but lies and misinformation, seeing as how there is a donate button. Or does this rule only apply when it works toward Progressive confirmation bias?
Granted, there are tremendous amounts of lies and misinformation spread around here...but you get my point.
