This is the dawning of the age of "fact-checking," and it has become the new "viral virtue"---as long as everyone knows you're fact-checking, it doesn't really matter what the facts actually are.

It's kind of like the Pharisees of Jesus' time---the most important thing about prayer is that you see me praying.

Before you start believing everything you see on social media---because you now know it's been "fact-checked"--- let's take a closer look.

Its upfront funding is coming from U2 frontman Bono, George Soros, and Bill Gates.

Celebrities and the global community will follow.

Barack Obama's former special assistant, Gayle Smith, is apparently helping launch the new effort.

So, what are they up to?

This Memorial Day is different. Crowds are not gathering, parades are not marching and folks are not mingling as they normally would.

What has not changed is the reason for the day---To remember.

Ronald Reagan, capably, reminded the world why we celebrate Memorial Day in his comments at Arlington National Cemetery, May 31, 1982.

He ended his comments by noting that our National Anthem ends with a question: "Oh say does that flag still wave o're the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

Concluding, the President said, "That is what we must all ask."
