Just who was doing what?

Purging MAGA Guarantees No GOP President Before 2037. I & I Editorial Board – “Had Trump said Obama’s exact words instead of his own, is there any doubt the House would instead be impeaching him because he “told a crowd that ‘we’ve got to fight’ and turn ‘activism into action’ ”? … Obama, unlike Trump, did not use the word “peacefully” in his speech.”

Rush to judgment on Trump? Multiple leftists arrested for Capitol riot. Monica Showalter – “The arrests made in the riots case are starting to show the kind of people who like to riot, which is to say extreme leftists.” … “It was a rush to judgment, a failure to look at facts. It happened in the aftermath of the event, and it turns out that Trump had little or nothing to do with it.”

“The facts will continue to roll out, and the picture that emerges will likely start to show that these rioters were hardly “Trump’s people” as a rule, or people who were egged on by Trump. They were, in general, leftists, political fringers, and people who like to go to riots. There remains to be news of whether and how this fiasco was plotted out but expect news of that to roll out.

That leaves Congress and all the jerks who voted for impeachment of President Trump looking like boobs and losers. They’ve hitched their star to this leftist impeachment obsession, and now have seen it falling flat. Now they are about to sully and overshadow Joe Biden’s first days in office with increasingly discredited charges against President Trump, and rest assured: the voters will notice just how bad it is. This rush to judgment will trash their own legacies for history.

CNN Was In On It! Reporter Disguised Herself As Trump Supporter And Plotted With BLM Member. Clayton Keirns – “footage showed CNN’s Jade Sacker inside of the Capitol with John Sullivan, the BLM member who was charged by federal prosecutors for inciting chaos on January 6th. … Sacker co-conspired with the liberal activist in order to cause chaos and make Trump supporters look bad.”

Trump-supporting legal scholar resigns from university under duress, issues troubling statement. Robert Jonathan – “Apparently, 169 faculty members and three members of the Orange County, Calif., school’s board of trustees attempted to get him canceled by signing and publishing a letter containing “false, defamatory statements” about him, Eastman contends.” … “Trump supporters likely feel that given the alleged rampant irregularities and statistical anomalies in Election 2020, attempting to seek redress through the court system would seem to be a way to uphold democracy rather than eroding it.”

Not mad … indignant

I Saw Provocateurs At The Capitol Riot On Jan. 6. J. Michael Waller – “The deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.” … “Plainclothes militants … Agents-provocateurs … Fake Trump protesters … Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers”

‘We Just Wanted Our Voices To Be Heard.’ Capitol Protesters Speak Out. John Daniel Davidson – “In the wake of the U.S. Capitol riot during a Donald Trump rally, corporate media won’t talk to the protesters or try to understand their point of view. So I did.” … “if you want to fix what’s wrong and salvage our broken republic, you at least have to try and understand why so many Trump supporters gathered at the U.S. Capitol last week.”

backstory: 4 Reasons McConnell’s Terrible Impeachment Blunder Is Doomed To Failure. Christopher Bedford – “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made a terrible mistake Tuesday night when he released word that he was in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump.” Note how little consideration can be found for the actual facts on the ground of the events stimulating the brouhaha.

The Cold Civil War: Social Media Bans Threaten Free Speech For All. I & I Editorial Board – “Triggered and emboldened by a direct request from former First Lady Michelle Obama, Twitter did as told, leading to a bizarre cascade of “me-too” social media activity.” … “That we live in a nation where such an act is possible speaks volumes for how degraded our public discourse, the rule of law and respect for the Constitution have become.”

The Purge Of Conservative Voices Proceeds Apace. Paul Mirengoff – “America’s institutions are using the invasion of the Capitol building by a relatively small number of extremists as a pretext for carrying out a purge of conservatives that they have long desired. The barons of the social media world are leading the charge, but others are following.”

Why AT comments are disabled. Thomas Lifson – “It is news to almost nobody who reads American Thinker that a political witch hunt is underway.”

Assault on the Capitol Has Let Loose the Electronic Octopus. Victor Davis Hanson – “What are the new standards that now get a book or a social media account canceled?”

Leftists Are Colonizing Red Towns Like Mine, And Local Republicans Are Clueless. Mark Pulliam – “As a resident of a small town in east Tennessee, I regret to report that wokeness is everywhere, even in the brightest-red areas of Republican-majority states.” … “weak leadership, public inattention, lack of organization, and general complacency make small towns vulnerable to aggression by liberal activists.”

“Why do voters tolerate such high-handed actions by their public servants? Many are uninformed; few people read the local newspaper. Most ordinary people in small towns are busy working, taking care of their families, and living their lives. They do not spend their time on social media or the internet, putting them at a disadvantage compared to better-organized, tech-savvy activists on the left.

The Salt That Has Lost Its Savor: The Woke Church and the Undoing of America. Larry Alex Taunton – “If abortion, infanticide, violence in our streets, election-rigging, and the evils of Marxism aren’t enough to rouse some churches, for what purpose do they exist?”

“Keller is not an evangelical anomaly. While he was giving theological justification to those who would betray their faith and defect to the opposition with their votes, popular Baptist pastor John Piper was encouraging Christians not to vote at all.

evangelicals in the English-speaking world have confused Christ’s command to love others with being civil as if that were an attribute of God. (It isn’t.) As a consequence, a superficial, self-righteous, good-for-nothing pietism that prefers tone to truth and style to substance has displaced authentic Christianity in many of the roughly four hundred thousand churches in America. This doctrinal malpractice has given us a generation of men, Christian and otherwise, who are what Lewis called “men without chests.”

C. S. Lewis called Christianity a “fighting religion.” Think on that. These days, such a statement strikes a somewhat absurd note with a generation that has never known war, privation, or suffering in defense of anything, much less of noble ideals. For them, Jesus has been reinterpreted to meet a lifestyle preference. One might wonder if they truly know him. Because when Jesus said to turn the other cheek, he did not mean to turn a blind eye. And the highest calling of a Christian is not to be civil; it is to be salt and light.

Christians Shaming Christians Over Voting for Trump: 3 Strawman Arguments That Need to Stop. Natasha Crain – “When a person mischaracterizes another’s position on something in order to attack it, that’s called a strawman fallacy. And there’s a lot of strawmanning going on right now.” … “Strawmen are easy to blow down, but the damage is hard to fix.”

woke-washing. fixing blame rather than finding fault.

 

a term that the Harvard Business Review describes as “appropriating the language of social activism into marketing materials.”

What went wrong with the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen. Derek Deng – “we’re becoming fed-up: corporate lip service isn’t enough, and we are becoming more adamant about legitimate promises, tangible change in the media we consume. Statements of solidarity may be a starting point, but bringing back the comforting authenticity of the test kitchen will require organizational and individual accountability that starts with transparency, education and a radical rethinking of the toxic top-down power dynamic.” This a university student publication. Note the absence of value delivered and the use of judgments such as “toxic”. One form of woke is a point of despair and another is promoted to replace it.

Is Truth Irrelevant? Thomas Sowell – “For too many people, especially in the media, what is right and wrong, true or false, depends on who it helps or hurts politically. Too many media people who are supposed to be reporters act as if they are combatants in political wars.” … “Someone once said that, in a war, truth is the first casualty. That has certainly been so in the media — and in much of academia as well.”

“Gross distortions of history, in order to get Abraham Lincoln’s name removed from schools tells us a lot about what is wrong with American education today.

Unfortunately, too many American educational institutions — from elementary schools to universities — have become indoctrination centers.

At the heart of that indoctrination is a sense of grievance and victimhood when others have better outcomes

Facts don’t matter in such issues, any more than facts mattered when smearing Lincoln.

Any “under-representation” of any group in any endeavor can be taken as evidence or proof of discriminatory bias. But those who argue this way cannot show us any society — anywhere in the world, or at any time during thousands of years of recorded history — that had all groups represented proportionally in all endeavors.

Yet who cares about facts any more, in this age of indoctrination?

Trump’s An ‘Imminent Threat’? Dems Have Been Saying That For 4 Years. I & I Editorial Board – “Do we really need to remind readers what actually happened? That, internationally, it was a time of peace, with ISIS destroyed and terrorism all but forgotten? That the economy did better than anyone expected, and produced a middle-class boom? That Trump made a huge impact on the judiciary by appointing constitutional conservatives?” … “If Trump was as dangerous as his detractors constantly claimed, how could those events have possibly happened?”

“The horror stories were also meant to distract the nation from the fact that the left actually does want to do the things they kept accusing Trump of doing. They want to trample over the Constitution. They want to deny civil rights to those who aren’t “woke” enough. They dream of having dictatorial powers and want to create a one-party state in this country. They damaged civil society by claiming for four years that Trump stole the election. They, not Trump, were responsible for the death and destruction caused by riots throughout the summer. And they undermined Democracy by using the cover of COVID-19 to knowingly make election fraud easy.

Trump on Energy, Environment, and Regulation (Part I). rbradley – “I cannot help but believe from my recent Facebook exchanges with leading libertarian academics that too many fell into the Progressive Left trap of changing the narrative from public policy to Trump’s character. (Is the Left really the character party, by the way?) For academic libertarians surrounded by Progressives in the workplace, is ignoring or downplaying Trump’s accomplishments a way to try to get along? To have a dialogue?”

Tucker Carlson’s frightening summation of what’s happening in America. Andrea Widburg – “spelled out what America’s corporate overlords are doing in America. Essentially, they are “de-personing” anyone who dares to question what happened in America on November 3-8 or who even supports Trump. In a world run on computers, they are unplugging everyone who does not toe their party line.”

Trump Warns Democrats: Impeachment “Witch Hunt” Is “Causing Tremendous Anger”. Tyler Durden – “The American Way” eh? Due process… innocent until proven guilty? We can only imagine “the squad’s” response to this ‘offer’ from the GOP.”

Exploiting The Capitol Riot To Kill Trump. Pat Buchanan from Buchanan.org, at Zerohedge – “Now calls are coming from home-state newspapers and colleagues for Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to resign from the Senate. And for what?” … “As for the GOP, it should follow in these difficult days the counsel of LBJ when things were going bad: “Just hunker down like a mule in a hailstorm. And let the wild wind blow. And the sun will come out again in the morning.”

‘Ruling Class’ Trump-Doubters Still Don’t Get It. And They’ll Pay A Price. Bob Maistros – “Current appearances notwithstanding: thanks to Donald Trump, sir (and madam), the people once again govern. And he still occupies their hearts.”

“The Rasmussen polling organization claims The Donald’s approval rating has actually soared in the wake of the D.C. violence. Maybe. But the members of his base still believe (correctly) this election was stolen – from them – and that President Trump was justified in fighting until the end. They don’t blame him – as The Ruling Class was willing, waiting and wanting to do – for the assault on the Capitol, and think the Elite’s response was overblown given its tolerance of leftists’ continued burning and looting of entire urban areas.

The Deep State Is Rattled. Steven Hayward – “Right away a few observations come to mind. First, if you squint the right way, you can see that our leaders don’t really take BLM and Antifa protests very seriously, and hence the kid glove treatment they get. The property damage may be significant, but our government likely doesn’t think Antifa and BLM amount to a significant political threat. Hence the leniency of the government response at all levels to riot season last year. But if the government at all levels now tries to crack down on pro-Trump protestors, won’t they have to also tighten their rules of engagement with Antifa, or will there now be a political litmus test for rules of engagement? There is, this person said, a lot of hand-wringing going on about the fact that of the hundreds of people who invaded the capitol building, only about 50 arrests were made. (There may be more as law enforcement goes about identifying people.) But the point is: from the perspective of the Deep State, the mob largely got away with it.”

Purge!

The Global Consequences Of The Tech-Lash Will Be Severe. Sumantra Maitra – “If tech feudal lords and oligarchs can decide which sovereign has a voice and platform, then sovereignty is meaningless. Europeans must take note.” … “The sovereign now is the group of neo-feudal oligarchs, Amazon, Google, Twitter, and Facebook, who now decide and control who can speak, see, learn, and buy, and what and when.”

The Purge Has Begun. Trump Was Just The Beginning. Robert Romano – “You either bend the knee and renounce President Trump — or your days on social media or in official Washington, D.C., could be numbered.”

“This is exactly what John Stuart Mill warned against in 1859 in On Liberty, the most compelling defense of free speech in human history, the philosopher warned how a tyranny of the majority could impose censorship that would be “more formidable” than even governmental censorship and that it could “enslav[e] the soul” with little room for escape.

This is dangerous. And it has to stop — before it is too late and we reach the point of no return. We are about to enter into an abyss from which there is no escape.

Democrats Are OK With Billionaires If They Censor You. Stephen Kruiser – “What’s been most disturbing is seeing half the country cheer this on. The Left is rejoicing over the idea of a one-party information flow.”

Driving Out the Scapegoat. Bruce Thornton – “Why, with only a week left in his term, expend all this hatred on a lame-duck president?” … “The further assaults on our freedom, our traditions, our history, our faiths have only just begun.”

Democrats close in for the kill – not just Trump, but all Republicans. Andrea Widburg – “The Russians had a word for what Democrats are doing: Purge (Большой террор). The Greeks had a word too: Hubris. Both are very bad words.”

AOC Loses Her Mind With Hyperbole About Capitol Protest, But Here’s a Little Reality Check for Her. Nick Arama – “She wants to impeach President Donald Trump. But Trump never called for violence and indeed called for people to demonstrate peacefully and patriotically.”

“The bottom line is the Republican Congressional members language has been very temperate and within bounds, while Democrats have been inflammatory for years. So if we’re talking about accountability, they have a tremendous amount to answer for, including for the violence still ongoing from radical leftists.

Exactly Where and How Did Trump Incite the Mob? Robert Spencer – “all Americans should these days be insisting: where and how, exactly, did President Trump incite the mob? Where did he say that the crowd should storm the Capitol and disrupt the electoral vote certification? If he didn’t say this, then he is not guilty of incitement, and to claim that he is threatens the very foundations of America as a free society.”

We Will Not Be Lectured by the Violent, Anti-American, Revolutionary Left. William Sullivan – “on the strength of their well-orchestrated political lies, the Democrats’ de facto storm troopers destroyed American cities for the better part of 2020, and we watched these same elitist media dunces defend violent arsonists and rioting revolutionaries, presenting them as thoughtful protestors nobly seeking to transform the country.”

Is the Wisdom of Homer Immune to Cancel Culture? Victor Davis Hanson – “Canceling Homer is not virtue-signaling. It is broadcasting ignorance.”

Things that just don’t add up

Indiana AG: Governors Completely Ignore That Endless Lockdowns And Mask Mandates Are Unconstitutional. The Federalist Staff – “What can the people, the voters, do when their elected representatives are not operating within the confines of the law and not representing our concerns and actually duly passing laws, rather than just letting us live under suspended constitutional rights.” (podcast interview)

The New Imperative: Red States Must Become Sanctuaries for the Bill of Rights. Stacey Lennox – “A democrat trifecta at the federal level, like the one from 2009-2010, is now upon us. Unlike the first two years of the Obama administration, they will not be leaving their most radical legislation until midnight of Christmas Eve 2022.”

There Is No Constitutional Ground For Impeachment Of President Trump. Rob Natelson, op-ed via The Epoch Times – “There’s no reasonable claim that President Donald Trump’s speech, which largely focused on disputed, but credible, claims of election irregularities, was treasonous or involved a bribe. And in the absence of proof of deliberate incitement to riot, it wasn’t a “high Crime.”

or, from Don Surber – “Impeachment is a removal from public office, which means Mitch, Schumer, and Nancy are conspiring to make an unconstitutional, illegal, and unAmerican move.”

Twitter Just Nuked The Account Of The World’s Biggest Critic Of Big Tech And China. Jordan Davidson – “claiming that the various interpretations of his recent tweets could pose a “risk of further incitement of violence.” … “While the Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who glorifies violence on a regular basis, is allowed to stay on the big tech platform, and is even promoted by it, Trump will no longer be allowed an account with Twitter.” It appears that what ‘incites violence’ is anything that the Twitter folks do not like, ideas and facts they cannot accept or tolerate.

What A Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About The 2020 Election. Daniel Greenfield – “the media’s fact checkers tried to suppress it. … You don’t need a PhD or a fact checker title: just a modicum of integrity. … it comes from Stalin’s former secretary, Boris Bazhanov, who fled the USSR and wrote a memoir exposing the crimes and corruption of the Soviet regime.”

“What Stalin meant was that the actual vote didn’t matter, when controlling the news also gave him control of how the election was reported. The actual votes could be tallied somewhere out there, but Pravda would report that there was a consensus in favor of the Central Committee.

Some might call it a historical irony or tragedy for a leftist media to try and suppress a quote whose import was that a leftist media can manufacture an election consensus by printing lies.

The trouble with the Pravda approach is that it only works for a limited amount of time.

The Night of the Tech Long Knives. Clarice Feldman – “The attacks on the President’s speech to the crowd are of a piece with the descriptions of the events which followed.”

“His detractors characterize this as a reflection of his narcissism. My friend Jeffrey Satinover, a psychiatrist who knows a bit about such things, has a different view “I don’t think we know to what extent it is personal pride and to what extent principle based on background information that most of us lack. His detractors of course are incapable of thinking his actions anything but base.” And in support of this view, I note the long-delayed and underreported Ratcliffe assessment of foreign influence on the election was tardy because of members of the intelligence community feared it would assist the President:

As the Intelligence Community works to cover for China and the Silicon Billionaires strip dissenting voices from their platforms, leading Democrats join the overreach.

Timing doesn’t line up for Trump to have incited violence at the Capitol. Allan J. Favish – “it appears that the breakdown of the barricades began at least 12 minutes before Trump’s speech ended, by people who were over a mile and a half away from Trump.”

“This Was A Coordinated Attack”: Parler CEO Speaks Out After Amazon Boots From AWS, Vows To Rebuild ‘From Scratch’. Tyler Durden – “Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet.” … “Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies. This was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place.”

“To justify censoring Parler, critics have pointed to posts calling for ‘firing squads’ – like one from attorney Lin Wood (who some say handed the Senate to the Democrats by openly calling for Georgians not to vote in the runoff election unless the GOP candidates backed Trump’s election fraud claims).

3 overseas leaders who know how repression and tyranny work speak out on censorship of Trump and election skepticism. Thomas Lifson – When people with experience of political corruption and repression warn Americans about danger signs in the current efforts to shut down dissidents, we should take note.

The curious case of a rare plant’s destruction raises further questions about the extinction crisis, climate change and the role of humans. Daniel Rothberg – “Several pieces of evidence point to herbivory by rodents as a cause — perhaps the main cause — of Tiehm’s buckwheat damage. But no one was there, and no one can say for sure how it all happened. … People want a clear narrative … The Earth is in the middle of its sixth mass extinction, and there is one primary culprit: humans. ” – more than likely people want a particular narrative that is not supported by facts on the ground and just cant’ be. No mass extinction. Normal (natural) ebb and flow of species. “The emails showed that the investigation was being closely watched, not only by the scientific community but also by political leaders.” … “Is it changing climate?” Indicative: normal variations in weather patterns are now being called in to establish human culpability via yet another part of the same false narrative.

JUST is a Pre IPO food company Non GMO disrupting the food industry. Globalintelhub – “This is cellular agriculture, not genetically modified. Being a Non-GMO product is very appealing to the health crowd and the sustainable crowd.” Never mind that the distinction is irrelevant, it’s all chemistry. It keeps the gullible happy so what else matters?

The Sabotage of Public Education. Bruce Deitrick Price – “Genuine rigorous testing of educational ideas is rare in America. Why? Because practical testing usually goes against what the professors want to do. Their impractical ideas don’t perform well in the real world.”

The final check against abuses is not the system, but the people it’s accountable to.

The Judiciary vs. the Leftist Mob. Daniel Greenfield – “Patriots won’t bend to the mob — even if the judges do.” … “ Over two centuries ago, Alexander Hamilton pointed out that due to the “natural feebleness of the judiciary”, it’s “in continual jeopardy of being overpowered, awed, or influenced.” … Jeopardy long ago became reality. Now our nation’s future is in jeopardy.” … “The final check against abuses is not the system, but the people it’s accountable to.”

We Were Laughed Out of Court because the Courts Have Become Ridiculous. Robert Oscar Lopez – “This argument is authoritarian in its reasoning. It defers to a juridical priesthood and allows one guild, the attorneys, to override what average people can see in front of them.”

A CRISIS OF PERSPECTIVE: Pundits in Denial are Cratering Their Creditability. Richard Bledsoe – “We are supposed to roll over and accept an illegitimate election that will be an extinction level event for our Constitutional Republic. A complete capitulation to a cabal of our enemies foreign and domestic.”

Archbishop Viganò’s Exhortation To Americans. Mark Wauck – “transcript of Viganò’s interview with Steve Bannon. It’s an eloquent and timely discussion:”

My reaction #2 to the Trump-Raffensperger phone call. Neo – “When I found and read a transcript here, it came as no surprise that Trump’s call with Raffensperger had been mischaracterized by the MSM as nefarious, when the actual call versus MSM discussion of the call seems to have been much as shipwreckedrew describes it here: “a case study in the media duplicity that President Trump has battled from day one.” My reaction #1 to the Trump-Raffensperger phone call – “one thing I will not miss are these leaked “gotcha” phone calls, whereby the MSM declares him finished, criminal, and/or hopelessly corrupt, and then once any objective person has a chance to actually listen to the call or read the transcript it becomes clear that this is a mischaracterization of what Trump actually said.”

Gaslighting Goes On Despite New Voting Irregularities. Kim Hirsch – “the media continue their gaslighting of the America public. Like the Washington Post, which “debunked” all of Trump’s claims of voter fraud. Was Dominion software compromised? No, says the WaPo. Did the federal government find any evidence of voter fraud? Once again, the WaPo says no.” … “If you believe the election results stink to high heaven, you’re not crazy. Nor are you a Trump cultist.”

The 2020 Insurrection. Peggy Ryan – “They even announced their intention to steal the White House long before the election.”

“When the president’s team calls out the fraud, Democrats cry foul and demand proof. Trump’s team obliges, provides thousands of sworn statements attesting to the fraud; a video of a woman pulling out boxes of ballots from under a table; truck-drivers’ testimony that they transported batches of ballots across state lines; election workers who were instructed to backdate ballots; and much more, enough to overturn Biden’s win in all five states. Yet nothing happens. The evidence is ignored. Our supposed honorable judges deny election challenges in case after case, refuse to even look at the evidence.

An Insider’s View of Pennsylvania and the Battle for Our Republic, Frank Ryan and Dawn Keefer – “The Department of State’s response and rebuttal were swift and condescending.” … “Unfortunately, the courts have yet to address any of the process control concerns we have presented.”

Defenders of Civilization, Tell The Truth Until It Hurts

Devin Nunes Tells The Truth Until It Hurts. Mollie Hemingway – “The more Rep. Devin Nunes was attacked, the more he wanted to understand what was behind the Russia collusion narrative. His opponents couldn’t have been more wrong in how to contain him.”

Ignoring And Ridiculing Election Fraud Concerns Will Not Make Them Go Away. Stella Morabito – “If nothing else, conservatives must all be on board with addressing the disastrous crisis of trust this election has produced.” … “The more invested Big Media and Big Tech are in driving their preferred narratives into our brains, the more reason we have to distrust them. Their immediate labeling as “disputed” of any fraud reporting feels like they doth protest too much.”

“So the more vexing question—and the rude awakening—is this: Why do so many self-identified conservatives play along with a media machine that is already 95 percent in the Democrats’ corner? The list is long, and includes many big-name Republican officials who have taken a particularly hostile stance against any real investigation into voter fraud

In short, why are they so willing to accept abnormalities as normal?

Why Those Who Claim To ‘Follow The Science’ Are More Likely To Ignore It. Benedict Beckeld – “We’ll be able to have more productive and honest conversations with one another the sooner we realize that while morality takes sides, science does not.”

Defenders of Civilization? Victor Davis Hanson – “Our grandees seem too exhausted, too guilty, or too ignorant to pass on and improve the civilization they inherited for others to come.” … “What happens if an elderly so-called white person dies of COVID-19, when a state medical policy ignores science and substitutes racial preference instead?”

“For now we wait for one local PTA member to refuse to change the name of his Lincoln school, or a crusading prosecutor who issues 40 federal racketeering indictments the next time Antifa drives in to town to take over a house, torch a courthouse, or reclaim a street, or a judge who sentences a violent arsonist to a 20-year sentence pour encourager les autres, or an exasperated college dean who will say no to segregating dorms or no-go zones by race, or one honest journalist who finally presses Joe Biden to answer what have Hunter and his family done.

 

The media are lying about Trump’s phone call with Raffensperger. Andrea Widburg – “Trump sought to avoid litigation forcing Raffensperger to do his job, which is to make at least a minimal effort to clear away enough fraud to allow Trump his actual and honest victory in Georgia.”

“Here are just two examples of the media’s dishonest claim that Trump was trying to force Raffensperger to commit fraud. As you can see, their premise is that there is no evidence of fraud, so any action on Trump’s part to claim victory is itself fraud. Theirs is a deliberate example of circular logic, where their premise and conclusion are the same thing.

Trump hammered over and over that he won the state. No matter how you look at it, he said he won, and he’s got the evidence to prove it.

Did you get that? The biggest election fraud claim in American history, the president on the phone, massive amounts of evidence, and Raffensperger whines that he’s already given up six and a half hours of his time to the issue.

Raffensperberger on line 2. Scott Johnson – “I want to add a few comments to draw out facets of the phone call that have been shortchanged — i.e., suppressed — by the mainstream media.” … “The fact that the call was secretly recorded is scurrilous.”

‘BIGGEST spin job ever’: Leaked Trump call is media hype, related to lawsuits against Raffensperger. Tom Tillison – “David Shafer, the chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, announced in a tweet that Trump has filed two lawsuits – federal and state – against Raffensperger after he secretly recorded the “confidential settlement discussion” of that pending litigation.” … “What’s not getting much notice is that there were attorneys from both sides on the call.”

Misguided Laments

Corporate Media’s Obsession With Fact-Checking Is A Mission To Monopolize The Truth. Tristan Justice – “In July, USA Today issued a “fact-check” that promoted a left-wing conspiracy theory asserting the Donald Trump campaign’s use of an eagle on memorabilia featured imagery of Nazi Germany.”

“The episode is emblematic of just about everything wrong about legacy media: its Trump Derangement Syndrome, its compulsive desire to smear Trump and his supporters as Nazi collaborators, its unaccountability. It also illustrates the dangers of a corporate media complex obsessed about fact-checking to cement a monopoly on truth, when many of its “fact-checks” aren’t truthful at all.

A world where leftist elites run the nation’s legacy institutions is no pretty picture. It’s a world where critical race theory is the mandated religion, Trump is a covert agent of the Russian government, Joe Biden sees no legitimate scrutiny, there is no accountability for American corporate giants dismissing their U.S. loyalty to appease Chinese interests, and any skepticism that could undermine pandemic lockdown measures is suppressed into oblivion.

“A Criminal Like Trump”: Federal Judge Exposes Bias In Public Interview. Jonathan Turley – “Judge Pratt gave an interview slamming the pardons in a departure from judicial ethics rules barring jurists from engaging in such political commentary.”

“Call it another example of Trumpunity in our age of rage and hypocrisy. Legal ethicists and experts stretched ethical rules to the breaking point to support actions against Republican lawyers for filing election challenges. Yet, they are again conspicuously silent on these controversy. Indeed, many Democrats recently denounced public comments by Justice Samuel Alito but have no criticism of Pratt or liberal jurists like the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in far more serious public comments.

What Pratt said publicly was wrong. It undermines not just his credibility but that of his court and his other colleagues.

Mitt Romney’s Misguided Lament. David Limbaugh – “When hatred of Trump blinds you in your every step.”

Dems Call Hawley’s Election Concerns ‘Coup Attempt’ After Objecting To Every GOP Certification This Century. Jordan Davidson – the hyperbole, speculation, and sliming all underscore the hypocrisy.

Laxalt files new lawsuit challenging Nevada’s alleged inability to keep noncitizens off of voter rolls. Riley Snyder – “stems from President Trump’s repeated and unsubstantiated claims of mass voter fraud in the 2020 election.” unsubstantiated? And you expect to be taken as sticking to the facts? Citing the culprits denial as fact and ignoring the credibility or even existence of evidence in the complaint is gross negligence and an expression of blatant bias.

The must read for the status of the election

The Mushrooming of the 2020 US Election. Quadrant Online – “publishes our own and full transcript of Trump’s 14-minute address.” … “It exposes the disgraceful alliance of the media (including The Australian’s US correspondent, let alone the ABC), the media-technology giants and the Democrat Party to suppress pro-Trump news, up to and including censoring the President himself.”

“If this egregious fraud is not fully investigated and addressed the 2020 election will be forever regarded as illegitimate and the most corrupt election in history of our country. Americans must be able have complete faith and confidence in our elections. The fate of our democracy depends on it. Now is the time for the American people to raise their voices and demand this injustice be immediately corrected.

Our elections must first be fair, they must be honest and they they must be 100 per cent free of fraud. We won this election by a magnificent landslide and the people of the US know it. All over, they are demonstrating, they are angry, they are fearful. We cannot allow a completely fraudulent election to stand. Thank you, God bless you and God bless America.

The War on Trump and the End of the Right to a Lawyer. Daniel Greenfield – “The basic trajectory of the Left. … 1. Turn a legal right into an entitlement … 2. Make the entitlement dependent on a political test rather than an objective service”

Overcoming the Court’s Abdication in Texas v. Pennsylvania. William J. Olson and Patrick M. McSweeney – “In refusing to hear Texas v. Pennsylvania, the U.S. Supreme Court abdicated its constitutional duty … However, even in its Order dismissing the case, the Supreme Court identified how another challenge could be brought successfully — by a different plaintiff.”

The Limits of Those Reviews of Masks For All and What We Do Know. Hilda Bastian – “Major recent reviews relevant to non-healthcare worker mask-wearing ended up with different results for 5 main reasons related to their design and conduct:” This one is plagued by the issues it identifies. It confuses bacterial and viral contagion, is ambiguous in its conclusions, and dances around the conflicts it notes between studies and real world experience.

reason, rationality and proportionality. Where art thou?

You Can’t Sue Over Election Fraud Before, During or After the Election. Daniel Greenfield – “When should you file a lawsuit over an election? If you’re a Democrat, the answer is at any time. But if you’re a Republican the answer is never.”

What’s happening in Minnesota bodes ill for Democrats. Andrea Widburg – “I can’t help it. Whenever I hear a Democrat intone “science” to justify the current Marxist social or economic project the Democrats are pushing, I think of the mad doctor in Thomas Dolby’s classic video for the hit song “She Blinded Me With Science” … “In Walz’s case, “science” holds that working mothers must go to jail, and killers must hit the streets.”

2020: The Year We Lost The Plot. Rob Slane – “not only do we have our imaginary conspiracy loon’s mad ravings come true, but those same people who have accepted it look upon those of us who have been pointing out the madness of it all as if we were those who had taken leave of our senses.” … “To cut to the chase, we have gone and thrown out reason, rationality and proportionality this year.” … “In the real world, the only thing that got controlled this year was not a virus, but people.”

Bad Science Isn’t a Victimless Crime. Peter Ridd – “Every major industry in north-eastern Australia is affected by legislation designed to “save the Reef ”; the costs run into billions of dollars.” … “Every major aspect of farm activity is now tightly controlled by bureaucrats.”

“The GBR should be treated with respect; no significant damage to the Reef is tolerable. But, if the GBR is actually in good shape, then it means the focus of worry, and attention, should move to something else instead. Something that is a genuine problem. Something that must be fixed. Humans seem to have only a finite capacity for care, compassion, and concern. If we are worrying more about the GBR, we will likely be worrying less for the fate of the Borneo rainforest or some other natural treasure.

The U.S. Media Are Suppressing the Truth about Hydroxychloroquine. C. Boyden Gray – “Developments overseas have been totally ignored by the American press. And yet, since Election Day, the media have hewed to the “HCQ Bad” narrative.” … “the narrative is false. First, there is strong evidence that hydroxychloroquine is helpful in treating COVID-19 when administered early in the disease”

The gaslighting tells you its propaganda, not news

Nobody’s trying to ‘overturn’ the election. We’re CORRECTING fraudulent results. Carl Durrek – “What happens when you combine gaslighting with begging the question? You get the ludicrous framing by Democrats and mainstream media that somehow President Trump and his allies are trying to “overturn” an election that is righteously being challenged.”

Frauds: The Election, Media, Congressional Dems, and the FBI. Clarice Feldman – “The second most significant matter, in my view, was the clear gaslighting the media and former intelligence officials carried out on the Hunter Biden story, hiding the fact that he’s been under criminal investigation since 2018 for bribery, tax evasion, and money laundering from, among other sources, China.”

Is America still a democratic republic? Roger Kimball – “The Texas decision is not the end of the world for Donald Trump’s legal team” … “Among the many reasons that it is difficult to keep a democratic republic going is the constant pressure to transform one party into the party of the regime.”

Media Elites Now Openly Confirm They Don’t Believe In Objectivity. Jenna Stocker – “When mainstream media journalists abandon objectivity to push personal ideological agendas, truth is slowly killed off by the collateral damage.” … “this does nothing to hold the powerful accountable. It only leaves truth as collateral damage, dying out in the hellscape of No Man’s Land.”

When Journalism started to die. Alicia Colon – “it is the only military conflict that we walked away from. Yet the truth is that we never lost a major battle in Vietnam, even Barack Obama admitted that fact. We lost the war over here, thanks to the fake news spread here by the most trusted man in America, Walter Cronkite.” … “The mainstream media is now doing its best to omit the fact that the 2020 election was stolen and that Donald Trump won reelection in a landslide. They still think we’re dumb.”

This Washington Post ‘Fact-Check’ Of Trump’s Election Integrity Claim Is A Ragbag Of Lies. Andrew Pollack – “I suppose it’s the prerogative of opinion writers to twist the facts to advance their narratives, but that’s not what fact-checkers are supposed to do.” … “It never ceases to amaze and appall how these pretend nonpartisans can take entirely true statements that threaten the mainstream media’s narrative and twist them so far as to make them appear false.” Diagnosis and dissection illustrates how it’s done.

The Washington Post throws a mindless fit. Paul Mirengoff – “We all knew that heads would explode at the Washington Post if President Trump won reelection. But who knew that, with Joe Biden about to be declared the winner, heads at the Post would explode anyway?” … “ if Democrats wanted the results of this election to have wider public acceptance, they shouldn’t have insisted on voting procedures that removed traditional safeguards against fraud. But the Democrats (like any political party, I assume) were more interested in obtaining power by winning the election than they were in having their opponents widely accept their win.” It’s this last item in the ‘both sides are the same’ narrative that stimulated heat noted by Scott Johnson also at Powerlineblog.

‘Collusion’ vs. Collusion. Victor Davis Hanson – “One can lie about “collusion” with impunity. But to speak the truth about collusion is to be smeared as “xenophobic,” “racist,” and “nativist.” … “The farce infected the media. It discredited the Democratic Party. And it warped the popular culture between 2015 and 2020. … “Collusion” destroyed what was left of respect for the Washington FBI, the CIA, and the liberal news media.”

As leftists double down on lockdowns, are we being played? Andrea Widburg – “I’m a pandemic skeptic. I know that the Wuhan virus is real and dangerous for some people. Still, I cannot get excited about a disease with an average 99% survival rate.”

The Serbian Connection. Joseph Hippolito – “To Biden, Soros, the CIA – and electoral fraud.” … “A number of mistakes and malwares were added to the software,” Nogo wrote, “and additional manipulation were (sic) done over the internet, from (a) Serbian IP address.” … “Today Serbia. Tomorrow the United States? Or has it already happened?”

Stability or Justice: A False Choice. J. Robert Smith – “Perhaps like me, your blood boiled when you read the response filed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to the “Emergency Application for Injunctive Relief filed by Congressman Mike Kelly and other Plaintiffs.”

The Supreme Court’s Rejection Of Texas’s Election Lawsuit Failed The Constitution. Margot Cleveland – “It is hard to believe the justices put the constitutional question above their desire to avoid appearing to meddle in the 2020 election.” … “There might be a satisfactory answer, but Americans have yet to hear it. And that was wrong, both for the court and the country.”

Supreme Court of Kangaroos. Matthew Vadum – “Compromised by the Left, can we ever trust the high court again?” … “If Chief Justice John Roberts, a make-believe conservative, was the guardian of the Supreme Court as an institution that he thinks he is, he should have embraced the age-old legal saying that justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done.” … “ Every American now has to wonder if justice was uppermost in the minds of the court’s members when they nixed Texas v. Pennsylvania.”

See-Nothing, Do-Nothing Judiciary Unleashes Dred Scott 2020. Bob Maistros – “the burgeoning legal body count is no indicator of legal incompetence, flight of fancy nor quixotic stubbornness. Rather, it’s a measure of the American judiciary’s historic failure at all levels to protect the integrity of the electoral process, defend the Constitution, and ultimately, perhaps, preserve the union.”

“It would have been little skin off various courts’ backs to allow suits to advance, facilitating discovery and deposition of officials involved in suspicious activity and potentially, even disproving charges of fraud, thereby instilling greater confidence in the result one way or another.

Instead, the Supreme Court’s two punts this week unleash Dred Scott 2020 (without the racial overtones). Like the original, they will inflame tensions and potentially, create further momentum toward America’s sundering.

And make no mistake, that momentum is growing.

Graham Eats Humble Pie With Hot Inflation For Dessert. Phoenix Capital Research – “I predicted President Trump would win a second term in the courts. I was wrong. The end.”

“There are sworn affidavits from thousands of poll workers swearing to witnessing fraud. There are vote audits that have turned up fraud. There is statistical analysis that shows fraud. There is historical precedent concerning how key counties and states determine election outcomes that show fraud.

And yet the courts have all either refused to accept any of this evidence… OR refused to even listen to the cases. It’s pretty incredible when you consider just how many ridiculous lawsuits and court cases are heard at all levels of the judiciary, even the Supreme Court.

The Honor of the Legal Profession. James V. DeLong – “if process values are systematically ignored, then all hell can break loose. … My professors, who had seen the rise of the great totalitarian states, the consequent World War II, and the tensions of the Cold War, were very aware of the dangers. They regarded reverence for process values as fundamental to the honor of the legal professional.”

“LDAD is not the only entity that wants to suppress efforts to get to the truth of the allegations about the election, and one could easily compile a long list of calls for the professional disgrace of any lawyer who questions the election. Any professor at any leading law school expressing sympathy for Trump’s position, however qualified, could be a career-ender.

And all the while, other appalling behavior by goes unnoticed. Threats of economic harm and personal violence force lawyers for Trump to withdraw. Witnesses to vote fraud are doxxed and blacklisted; state legislators are intimidated. Lawyers are involved in all of this behavior, without censure by the establishment.

The legal establishment does not seem to grasp the long term consequences of its failure to uphold the profession’s honor and integrity by supporting process values.

Republicans Pushing Themselves Off the Cliff. Brian C. Joondeph – “Where are the Republicans through this travesty? A few like Rep Jim Jordan or Senator Ted Cruz are making noise, but the rest are looking at their feet, hoping to not be called on to comment on the election, willfully ignoring the imminent demise of their political party.”

The Judge’s Opinion In Michael Flynn’s Case Was So Bad It Should Be Vacated. Margot Cleveland – “Michael Flynn and the Department of Justice should not allow Judge Emmet Sullivan’s final irrational and unhinged act of judicial defiance to go unanswered.”

Two running compendiums but ‘nothing to see here, move along’

Is America In A Civil Disobedience Mood? I & I Editorial Board – “Every COVID-19 death is tragic for that victim and his or her family and friends. But the death of liberty is catastrophic for all but the few who make the rules that restrict our freedom. Entire populations, not just a small portion, are lost when liberty dies. The effects linger for generations.”

A Running Compendium of Fraud Charges in Election 2020. The Editors, RealClearInvestigations – “Many allegations advanced by the president, his surrogates and supporters have been challenged and some have been dismissed by courts or debunked. … Still, in numerous instances, media fact checkers have not been diligent.” … “Below is a running, selective collection of hyperlinked articles detailing charges of ballot irregularities or electronic fraud being made in various states, especially key battlegrounds such as Arizona, Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania.”

Election Fraud, Political Corruption, and its Consequences. Clarice Feldman – “It’s not new, but the scope of it is breathtaking. The Heritage Foundation has compiled an election fraud database, sampling the many proven instances of election fraud, which you are welcome to review. I cannot dispute their conclusion”

No, The Georgia Vote-Counting Video Was Not ‘Debunked.’ Not Even Close. Mollie Hemingway – “A Big Tech-backed ‘fact’ ‘checking’ outfit claimed to debunk explosive evidence for Republicans’ claims of significant election problems in Georgia. It didn’t.” The lies and denial are blatant and in your face and insistent. This is the core problem.

Is The President Our Daddy Who’s Supposed To Keep Us Healthy? I & I Editorial Board – “Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, much to the delight of the Democratic press, maligned President Donald Trump last week over the coronavirus pandemic, calling his leadership “a great human tragedy.” Are we alone continually puzzled as to why the head of the federal government is being held responsible for sickness and death from a natural cause?”

“There’s No Science Claim On This” – O’Leary Lashes Out At State Lockdowns As CNBC’s Sorkin Does Damage Control. Tyler Durden – “we’d really enjoy hearing Sorkin explain “the science” of how Big Box stores are “completely different” from restaurants and churches. … The only problem with that utter falsehood is that most of California has been wearing masks outside for months… as have numerous other states with mask mandates… and it’s not helping!”

“As we near a year of lockdowns and sheltering in place, the long-term effects of pandemic policy on the economy are becoming clearer. Almost every piece of legislation ostensibly designed to curb the spread of the coronavirus and protect workers has wreaked devastation on small businesses—while benefiting the largest corporations. Roughly 100,000 small businesses have permanently closed due to COVID-19, while big-box retailers, tech giants, and pharmaceutical manufacturers have seen record profits.

Despite the fact that these policies are explicitly harmful to small businesses, they can be justified on the basis of “public health” and thereby shielded from criticism.

For The First Time, A US State Will Require Disclosure Of PCR ‘Cycle Threshold’ Data In COVID Tests. Tyler Durden – “Numerous epidemiological experts have argued that cycle thresholds are an important metric by which patients, the public, and policymakers can make more informed decisions about how infectious and/or sick an individual with a positive COVID-19 test might be.” … “We hope, for the sake of Americans’ livelihoods it is Option 3 [pro-science] and the ‘casedemic’ will collapse on itself and allow we, the people to go back to some sense of normality.”

Nevada climate strategy outlines framework to phase out natural gas, electrify transportation. Daniel Rothberg – “what scientists say is an imperative for governments across the country to prevent the worst effects of a warming world — skyrocketing heat, extreme wildfires, limited water supplies.” … “the state established a framework that looked at each recommendation using four metrics: a policy’s potential for decreasing emissions, climate justice considerations, economic implications and the legal feasibility of implementing a policy.” and you think the pandemic panic as irrational? Climate Justice?

“The report said “a potential first step in a phased transition from gas would be to allow consumers the choice between gas and electric on existing buildings but require all-electric in new construction.

At the same time, the action needed to address climate change can also disproportionately affect marginalized communities, often least responsible for creating the problem.

Climate justice activists in Nevada are concerned with both issues. They said the report was a starting point, but they hope to see more direct climate justice policies in the future.

Move away from what supplies 70% of the current energy load to something that is inherently less efficient for heating and comes from sources yet to be identified? Fantasy with numbers is the first issue to address for those who want to divorce from carbon based fuels.

Projection

David Horowitz: Where We Are, And What We Face. John Hinderaker – “David Horowitz writes that today’s Left is the same as yesterday’s Left: irredeemably destructive and dishonest. Hating America and working toward its demise is the Left’s pole star. This piece is special to Power Line.”

Media Elites, Not Trump Supporters, Are Disconnected From Reality. John Daniel Davidson – “But here’s the thing. Everything these media elites say about Trump supporters can more properly be said about media elites themselves.” And what they are saying is not pretty.

DoJ Investigates Possible Scheme to Bribe Trump for a Pardon. Patterico – it’s like a brainstorming session trying to envision a nefarious plot. If they didn’t keep floating the fantasies as realities and keep getting shot down, they might get more traction outside of their toadies camp. It’s time to learn the fable about the boy who kept crying “wolf”. Another example from Slate: Trump Is Pondering Preemptively Pardoning His Kids Before Leaving Office.

The Media Stole the 2020 Election Before a Single Vote Was Cast. Don Feder – “They did it over the course of four years by creating a caricature of Donald Trump and convincing voters that to save the country and the planet, his defeat was imperative.”

“They persuaded millions of voters that the president who had turned the economy into a job-creating engine, made us energy independent, secured the borders, transformed an activist judiciary, and returned sanity to American foreign policy, was a monster — a racist megalomaniac, an enemy of the environment, a bungling foreign-policy loner, and an anti-science know-nothing.

Evidence supports Sidney Powell’s claim about global election fraud. Andrea Widburg – “A retired military analyst testified in Arizona that the U.S. has captured the information that was sent overseas. Also, a November 25 declaration from an active-duty military analyst was made public today, which says that, within five days of the election, the analyst was able to connect dominonvotingsystems.com, which is Dominion’s proprietary URL, to Belgrade, Iran, China — and Barack Obama.”

Crime and Punishment on Campus. Luke Powell – “Have I learned anything? Chiefly that what passes for truth and historical fact on campus is a selective and malleable thing.”

Why Our Universities Have Failed. Victor Davis Hanson – “Something went wrong with the rapidly expanding university in the 1960s, and the new 21st century, high-tech, globalized campus has made the mess it inherited dangerous.”

COVID-19 Lockdowns: Liberty and Science. Ammodotcom – “First, the goalposts moved. … Second, there was an intensification of the authoritarian measures.”

“We should add that a third thing didn’t so much “happen” but was discovered: As it turns out unless you are old (over the age of 65), morbidly obese or suffer from a complicating disorder (such as diabetes or asthma), COVID-19 was little more than a bad cold or the flu.

The generous or naive might say that the COVID-19 health measures are misguided attempts to protect the population. A more hard-nosed or cynical person likely thinks that these measures are a deliberate attempt to enact totalitarian measures leveraging public panic.

there is mounting evidence that government intervention has, surprise of surprises, actually made things worse.

Masks Are As Much A Religious Symbol As A Health Precaution. Joe Allen – “If these makeshift masks are nothing more than terror management for germaphobes, what’s the point?”

“While Facebook and other organizations insist the mask science is settled in its favor, the truth is that at the very least the scientific record is mixed. While neurotic co-workers and draconian baristas command you to obey the state and trust the science, real scientific evidence suggests shaking magic bone-rattles at the sky would provide the same protection.

The credulous “trust the science” crowd is annoying for many reasons, but nothing’s worse than their blind faith in authority.

Most of the folks you see masked at the grocery store, just trudging along as they would any other day, fall into the second category. They’d wear a red Bozo nose and a sequined leotard if it meant they wouldn’t get hassled.

If I choose to visit Rome, I do as the Romans do. The problem is that Rome moved its border to my doorstep, and if Pennsylvania’s ghoulish health secretary is any indication, the centurions are itching to step inside and start barking orders.

Our Overlords Are Using The ‘Big Lie Technique’ To Convince Us Masks Work. Scott Morefield – “Not a soul could have possibly predicted this eight months ago when established science laughed at the idea that a piece of cloth over people’s faces would somehow abate the spread of a highly contagious respiratory virus.”

A response to the propaganda is a website devoted to analysis of HCQ.

4 Life Lessons I Learned Caring For The Elderly That You Need To Read Now. Zeppy Cheng – “Even as sickness and death confronts us at every headline, with Christmas around the corner, there’s no better time to cherish what gives life meaning.”

Between the election and pandemic data sets, numbers geeks are in heaven

The Truth About ‘Truth’. Peter Smith – “the virtue of truth, runs throughout the Bible. It runs throughout the philosophy of civilised men.”

“The key is having no obligation to the truth. Truth is singular. Outside of truth, there is an unlimited menu of choice. And a particular difficulty is that getting to the truth is hard work, replete often with false trails. This slows down the process and allows scope for lazy suppositions, half-truths, distortions, deceptions and lies to fill the breach.

Whether COVID, climate change, or allegations of war crimes are in the frame, truth is the light on the hill for those of conservative disposition. Leave the leftists, greenies and assorted woke rabble to wallow in the nether regions.

Fragile And Unsustainable Lies. Robert Wright (via ZeroHedge) – “The phalanx of private media and sundry have convinced tens of millions of Americans that:” … “Thankfully, the Truth always prevails, it is just a matter of when and how.”

Reality and the Narrative. Roger Kimball – “Despite the blandishments of the narrative, which seek to seduce you into acquiescence with rumors of inevitability, we really do not know how this story, which seems so familiar, will end.”

Missouri Doctor Says People Who Don’t Mask Are Like ‘Enemy Combatants’. Laura Martin – “Professional discussion of the harms and benefits of masks and mask mandates cannot even happen privately among doctors without vitriol. This kind of atmosphere kills science.” … “The difference between a patriot and an “enemy combatant” has now been defined for us by a piece of paper attached to our ears by stretchy string. Dear Lord, what has happened to us?”

Warring Tribes and Fake Virtue: The 2020 US Election. Daryl McCann – “The American republic, as we have known it, is in crisis. The nation has largely divided into two warring tribes who view the other as a mortal—and civilisational—enemy.”

The Difficult Way Forward. Tom Mayer – “It used to be said that America was fortunate in that its politics were played between the 40-yard lines: that we agreed on the most important things and argued over the details within a small range of policies. That hasn’t been true for many years, the playing field being stretched as far as it can go.”

Climategate Revised: Quotations from the Major Players. Rbradley – “Fred Piece’s The Climate Files: The Battle for the Truth About Global Warming (2010) remains the definitive account of one of the greatest scientific scandals of our time.”

Stop Following the Science — Follow #TheScience. Tim Kowal – “In the 20th century, science is dangerous. Think about it. If normal people were to try to follow the science, they might start asking dangerous questions. Questions that make it harder for government and corporations to achieve the progress we need — progress that our souls need.”

Candace Owens Challenges Fact-Checker, And Wins. Amanda Prestigiacomo – ““I wanted to show that these fact-checkers just lie, and they usually go unchecked because most people don’t have the money, don’t have the time, and don’t have the platform to go after them — and I have all three.”

Dilbert Has To Be Right. Scott Adams – “How can you tell the difference between someone who ‘has to be right’ versus someone who IS right and you need therapy?” For a real life example, see Scott Johnson on a Mic drop on Jon Tevlin, a Star Tribune reporter and columnist for 20 years.

The COVID Case Con Continues. Brian C. Joondeph – “the media is pushing their November propaganda narrative, that Dementia Joe really won the presidential election and that COVID cases are once again surging across America.” … “Saying someone with a positive COVID test is a “case” is fraudulent. … Garbage in, garbage out. With an overly sensitive test, almost 90 percent of the so-called surge is fake news, fear porn to justify unnecessary lockdowns and business closures.”

Cause of Death: A Primer. Kip Hansen – “There has been massive media attention on Covid-19 deaths” … “Doctors, Coroners and Medical Examiners will calmly explain that “Cause of Death” is complicated and not simple. And they are right.”

Time to Abolish Unconstitutional and Useless Mask Mandates. William Sullivan – “the salient question is not about which individual rights have been so granted by the powers of government (the Founders were clear that God, not government, grants rights to citizens), but about how the powers of government are limited by the Constitution.”

The Strangely Unscientific Masking Of America. Jenin Younes (via ZeroHedge) – “The speed with which mask-wearing among the general public transitioned from unheard of to a moral necessity struck me as suspicious.” … “What is shocking is the scientific community’s participation in subverting evidence that does not comport with the consensus.”

Why Is All COVID News Bad? John Hinderaker – “Three professors, two from Dartmouth and one from Brown, have produced a paper for the National Bureau of Economic Research titled, “Why Is All COVID-19 News Bad News?” It focuses on the U.S. press, and its findings are disturbing:” … “The authors suggest that this negativity is driven by demand from consumers of the news–i.e, us.”

The Hijacking of the 2020 Election and the Hate America Strategy. Steve McCann – “I have watched in abject disbelief as this disturbing and traitorous Hate America scheme has taken root and flourished among the populace. It is only in the United States that this tactic has been effectively employed, as I have not seen, experienced or read about anything comparable in any other country on earth.”

Legitimacy of Biden Win Buried by Objective Data. David Catron – “Emerging information from the states render his victory less and less plausible.” … “A growing body of evidence ranging from straightforward ballot audits to complex quantitative analyses suggests that the tabulation of the votes was characterized by enough chicanery to alter the outcome of the election. Consequently, a consensus has gradually developed among the auditors of publicly available information released by the states, and it contradicts the narrative promulgated by the Democrats and the media. The more data experts see, the less convinced they are that Biden won.”

 

‘The Fraud Has Been Institutionalized’: Inside The Partisan GOTV Efforts In Indian Country. John Daniel Davidson – “Illegal electioneering and ballot harvesting by supposedly nonpartisan groups reached new heights in this election.” … “This Was A Coordinated Effort Nationwide”

“It’s undeniable that groups like Native Vote and Radicalize the Vote, supported with funding from the NCAI, have had an outsized effect on the presidential election. It’s also undeniable that they were flagrantly violating federal election laws and acting not as nonpartisan organizations just trying to increase voter turnout, but arms of the Biden campaign and the Democratic Party.

These things happen every election season, of course. The only difference is that this time they happened on a mass scale, in broad daylight, sometimes with the cooperation of state officials.

Steal the House? Steven Hayward – “Yes, you might well ask yourself: Gee, if the House can refuse to seat the certified winner of an election because of voting “irregularities,” why shouldn’t some state legislators think similarly about the “winner” of the presidential vote in several states this year?”

Understanding the head-spinning series of court orders in Georgia. Andrea Widburg – “If you’re wondering what happened in Georgia on Sunday, you’re not alone. A federal district court issued three different orders about county officials’ plans to wipe Dominion voting machines. Thankfully, the last order gets it right and stops Georgia officials from erasing information on voting machines at the heart of the debate about election fraud.”

Trump’s Michael Flynn Pardon Is Only The Beginning Of The Justice This Nation Deserves. Margot Cleveland – “The corporate media has refused to tell Americans the truth, so I will. Here are six key aspects of the case that expose the Obama-Biden administration’s travesty of justice.”

whatcha gonna do about it?

New Study Exposes Alleged Accounting Error Regarding COVID Deaths. Tyler Durden – more on that JHU paper that was pulled. “The study – which is still being vetted – simply examines the raw data that should have been questioned months ago.” A reference is made to Alex Berenson on Twitter claiming that the study is wrong but that claim is rather short of any indication as to why the raw CDC data review is incorrect. If the Briand paper is severely flawed the flaws should be easy to describe or label.

“The overall conclusion is that Covid-19, at least according to collected data, is not the killer disease that it is currently hyped up to be. AIER is not endorsing the study as is without further study, but we are interested in the argument being examined and discussed.

For Covid-19 to be a serious cause of alarm, it would need to significantly increase the number of average deaths.

Total deaths in the United States show no significant change and even mirror past trends of seasonal illness.

According to this graph constructed using data provided by the CDC from the last 6 years, total deaths have remained relatively constant and increases can be explained by various factors such as a larger population.

This aligns with many other well-established facts about the virus, such as those with comorbidities are the most at risk.

The hysteria over Covid-19 has likely led to the alleged accounting error noted in Briand’s study, the reclassification of expected deaths from all causes into Covid deaths

That accounting error has likely led to a number of policy decisions that have drastically crippled our ability to support the general welfare of society, economically, socially, and spiritually. Going forward these findings should give us pause and reconsideration over the threat Covid-19 actually poses and realize how much avoidable damage we have done to ourselves as a result.

PA Legislators Put Forward Resolution to Declare Election in Dispute. Daniel Greenfield – “It goes without saying that Governor Wolf. and Co. are not about to back down. But their abuses have, as a matter of fact, put the election in dispute. But the question is still, “whatcha gonna do about it”. That’s essentially the Democrat legal argument combined with a lot of empty pulpit-pounding about disenfranchisement.”

Can States Legalize Stealing Federal Elections? Daniel Greenfield – “If states illegally making up election law on the fly is treated as a state issue, and it can’t move forward within the state because, as in Pennsylvania, its judiciary is hopelessly partisan and corrupt, and federal judges refuse to touch it because it’s a state issue, then our political system is little better than a banana republic.”

The burden of proof should favor Trump in election fraud litigation. Andrea Widburg – “President Trump … asserted that Biden must prove that his votes did not result from fraud. People scoffed, but as a practical matter, Trump is correct.” The analogy provided here is also pertinent to the Briand JHU brouhaha noted above. “The extra wrinkle in this case is incontestable evidence that paper trails and electronic trails were deliberately destroyed. [spoliation]”

“To date, some courts (as, for example, this Obama judge) have said Trump has no evidence. In fact, Trump has massive evidence for all three categories — and certainly enough to get the election fraud claims over the net onto Biden’s side.

The real question is about Biden’s return volley. He must prove either that the eyewitnesses, the mathematical experts, and the equipment experts lied or are mistaken, or he must provide a compelling counter-narrative to explain how he got more votes than Obama did in 2008:

At a minimum, Biden must have eyewitnesses about signature verification, timely mail-in ballots, the absence of duplicate votes, properly functioning machines, etc. His problem is that the Democrats destroyed all or most of that evidence. On those issues, therefore, the missing evidence presumptively supports Trump’s case.

Was Trump cheated out of victory in Georgia? Paul Mirengoff – He cites Scott and Morrissey on the Powell lawsuit expressing skepticism based on contradicting Widburg’s claim (above) about evidence and he joins those two. This group of skeptics does not even see that the evidence of fraud exists and that raises questions about why there is such a significant discrepancy about perceptions of what is on the evidence table. See Shipwreckedcrew for something a bit more thoroughly thought out on the Georgia Powell case.

‘Historically strange’ spike in incomplete Nevada voter files, casinos as ‘home’. Paul Bedard – “In an affidavit filed in another Republican election challenge, a “data scientist” found a huge surge of incomplete voter registrations and those giving casinos and temporary RV parks as “their home or mailing addresses” in the Third Congressional District that covers the southern third of the state and much of Clark County.” … “In her affidavit, which has been forwarded to Trump’s team, Morgan said that her findings were just scratching surface.”

Catching up on the mahem:

A Wounded Nation Sows the Wind — and Reaps the Whirlwind. Anna Abbott – “The current culture’s disregard of natural and divine law has reaped ruinous consequences.”

The COVID-19 News the Corporate Media Doesn’t Publish. Stacey Lennox – “here is a rundown, with detailed sourcing, linking to recent news and previous information.”

Media Suppression of 8 Key Stories ‘Stole This Election’ for Joe Biden. Tyler O’neil – “The Polling Company surveyed 1,750 Biden voters in seven swing states”

Trumpism without Trump is like Reaganism without Reagan. Don Surber – “This is not Romney’s party or McCain’s or Bush’s. We push back now. And if those who conspired with Democrats against The Donald think they are re-taking the party, they have another thing coming to them.”

By Every Legal Means Necessary. Conrad Black – “Every available legal means must be used to assure Trump is not pushed out of office improperly, and, if he has lost, that that result is the consequence of a fairly conducted and tabulated election.”

The Propaganda of Despair. Laura Hollis – “This self-serving sales pitch has made generations of Democrats very wealthy, but it hasn’t done much to raise the standards of living for those in poverty.”

Trump Campaign Focusing on Unlawful Use of Absentee Ballot Process to Avoid Wisconsin ID Requirement. Shipwreckedcrew – “The recount now underway in Dane and Milwaukee Counties is likely for the limited purpose of just trying to reduce the margin from 20,000 votes to some lesser number. That lower number then becomes the “target” in the search for absentee ballots where the application for the absentee ballot — especially for newly registered voters — included a “self-certification” that the elector was “indefinitely confined”.

Newt Gingrich: their sloppiness will be their undoing. Mark Wauck – “covers a number of illegalities in this article, of which I’ve selected one very important one. Note that Gingrich gives credit to The Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project–which has intervened in Wisconsin and Georgia, so far.”

Covid: Cases vs Deaths. David Friedman – “News stories keep reporting record numbers of cases but not record numbers of deaths. Santa Clara County, where I live, shows detailed information on both, and the divergence is striking … The divergence is less striking in the U.S. figures, but it’s still there.”

Numbers and experts. Reality in plain sight to no avail.

COVID Infection Fatality Rates by Sex and Age. Alex Berezow – “A new paper attempts to create the best estimate for the COVID infection-fatality rate (IFR), which answers the question, “If I get sick, what is the chance that I will die?” Beware: The virus discriminates.” … “First, as we have long known, people of college age and younger are very unlikely to die. … Second, the IFR slowly increases with age through the 60-64 age group. But after that, beginning with the 65-69 age group, the IFR rises sharply. … Beginning with the 20-24 age group, men are about twice as likely to die as women from COVID.”

COVID-19, Viral Load and Shedding: An Update. Chuck Dinerstein – “a positive COVID-19 test by any method does not correspond to the presence of a viable virus. Our best belief is that the viral load and transmission peaks relatively early in the course of symptomatic disease and that by day 8 or 9, transmission risk is rapidly approaching baseline. ”

Study: Absolutely NO excess deaths from COVID-19. Robert Zimmerman –”It appears the newsletter analysis that I linked to below was too hopeful for the authorities at Johns Hopkins, even though it was based on actual data. Mere minutes after I posted this they took it down, censoring this conclusion.” The topic needs clarification which means refutation, not censorship.

Why Is Big Media Hiding That Illinois Has Far More COVID Cases Than Florida? Jordan Davidson – Because Illinois Has A Democrat In Charge And Tighter Lockdowns.

COVID Shutdowns and Masks. John Hinderaker – “The states where cases are rising fast cover the gamut from harshest restrictions (like Minnesota and Illinois) to least intrusive (South Dakota). These factors–shutdowns and mask mandates–make no apparent difference.”

SCOTUS Gets It Right on Religious Liberty: Church IS Essential. John Inazu – “I think the Court’s decision is correct and offers some important observations. One of the most important is that these shutdown orders cause irreparable harm because they restrict First Amendment freedoms—and that virtual worship is not a constitutionally sufficient alternative. In other words, worship is absolutely an “essential activity” and to say otherwise is constitutionally incorrect.” The justices in the minority are strongly of the view that ‘experts’ should prevail over constitutional rights [Law&Crime].

What the Election Will Come Down To. David Solway – “The so-called system “glitches” privileging Biden turn out to constitute an unmistakable pattern, a veritable constellation of effects.”

“I have met people who agree that the election has indeed been stolen and approve of the theft — anything to get Trump out of the White House is legitimate. In their books vice is the higher virtue, the ends justify the means and a statistically improbable, pre-determined result is to be applauded irrespective of how it may violate conscience and ethical principle, a sentiment shared by millions, which does not make it any less immoral. A lie is a lie and the truth is the truth, no matter how we scumble the picture. As noted, any reasonable person suspects, almost to a practical certainty, that a gargantuan electoral swindle is happening before their very eyes, and the same is surely true of committed Democrats. Honor among thieves may be the greatest dishonor imaginable. They do not care. The arc of injustice bends toward a desired conclusion.

YouTube Gets Brutally Ratioed After Attempting Woke Takedown Of Thanksgiving. Steve Watson – “Americans are in no mood for Google’s fake righteousness bullshit” – selected commentary where folks describe their feelings about revisionist history.

TIGged off with Tertiary Education. Tim Blair – “He’d become intrigued at some point by videos about welding. There are hundreds of them on YouTube: tutorials, restorations, guides, historical features and forums.” … “His family were not merely supportive of this. They were elated, because they had come to realise—as have many Australian families—that modern universities actually subtract knowledge and replace it with politics.” This story needs to be considered in light of the distance learning pandemic panic activity. Educational reform is coming in from the students, not the educational deep swamp.

So many frauds, so little time

‘The Fraud Has Been Institutionalized’: Inside The Partisan GOTV Efforts In Indian Country. John Daniel Davidson – “Illegal electioneering and ballot harvesting by supposedly nonpartisan groups reached new heights in this election.” He has a ‘must see’ map of Arizona …

“These things happen every election season, of course. The only difference is that this time they happened on a mass scale, in broad daylight, sometimes with the cooperation of state officials. It doesn’t necessarily mean the election was stolen from Trump, but it does means something perhaps worse: unless we fix this, Americans will never trust our elections again.

There’s More Than One Way to Steal an Election. John Hinderaker – “The evidence is strong that the Democratic Party press swung this year’s election to Biden by its selective non-coverage of critically important news stories that reflected well on President Trump or poorly on Biden.”

“This is not going to change. The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press, CNN, MSNBC, the broadcast networks, the women’s magazines, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and so on have chosen a side and they aren’t turning back. So we need to develop more news outlets that cover all the important news, not just the (often twisted) news that helps Democrats.

Another infuriating story of Pennsylvania voting fraud. Neo – “Not that we need another one of these tales. But this makes one particular method of accomplishing fraud clear. It also makes it clear that the liberal PA Supreme Court seems demented. But a demented decision in the cause of furthering the election of Joe Biden is no vice, right?”

Group files emergency petition in Wisconsin after finding 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots. Amistad Project’s Phil Kline – “These discrepancies were a direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law”

Arkansas Supreme Court invalidates Democratic candidate, GOP declares victory. John Moritz – “Democrat Jimmie Wilson is ineligible to serve in the state Legislature due to decades-old misdemeanor convictions in federal court, wiping out Wilson’s victory at the polls earlier this month in House District 12.” … “A unanimous decision by the high court, however, held that the pardon did not erase Wilson’s disqualification.”

Why Trump Will Win. Joseph Hippolito – “Absolutely frightening” evidence of entrenched fraud.” … “In this case, “Kraken” is not a mythical sea monster but a program the CIA and Defense Department use to get information about the nation’s enemies by hacking computers and cellphones.” Wikileaks is cited and the Scytl German servers are given context.

COVID-19: Lockdowns not Linked with Lower Death Rates, Study Finds. Annaliese Levy – “Researchers analyzed data from 160 countries over the first 8 months of the pandemic. They tested several factors— including demographics, public health, economy, politics and environment—to determine how they are correlated with COVID-19 mortality.” … “Despite increasing evidence proving that lockdowns do not work, government officials continue to push them.”

the sad, twisted little people they are

Forcing The Sick And Elderly To Die Alone Is Crueler Than COVID-19. Margot Cleveland – “Keeping people from their suffering loved ones does not safeguard them. It merely subjects them to a different kind of suffering — one for which there might be no recovery.”

The media are complicit in the fraud we see today. Christopher Ryan – “The Founding Fathers always worried that American democracy — which was a grand experiment — could be corrupted from the inside. They were right to be worried.”

Parallel presidency: So-called ‘president-elect’ Joe Biden muscles in on President Trump. Monica Showalter – “The votes haven’t even been tallied in some places, let alone audited or recounted or certified, and already Joe Biden is running a parallel presidency. So much for ‘one president at a time.’”

Flat Out TDS: Media Is Already Trying to Erase Trump Being President. Nick Arama – “the sad thing about people who write things like the Yahoo article is that they’ve built Trump up as some kind of evil entity responsible for all the bad in the world. Yes, at some point, he will no longer be president. But they will still be the sad, twisted little people they are”

An obituary for the press in the post-Trump era. T. Becket Adams – “Tragic.”

what’s really going on here?

Takin’ it to the Streets. Eric Georgatos – “In 2020, the American people ain’t blind, and they don’t like what they’re seeing from almost every one of their so-called leaders and ‘institutions’ regarding the presidential election of 2020.” [referring to the Doobie Brothers in 1976] … “ watch the streets of America in the coming weeks. We the People are not done with protecting and preserving this country.”

Thinking about that flailing Fox News betrayal. Jeannie DeAngelis – “This same group of self-ordained experts, who dismissed hydroxychloroquine and zinc as a COVID deterrent and treatment, have now turned their attention toward election fraud.”

Sidney Powell has expanded on the scope of the Dominion scam. Andrea Widburg – For Carlson et al, it’s the ‘never enough’ denial. “no lawyer should ever give the opponent (and that would be, not just the Democrat party and Dominion, but the media as well) the entire case before going into court. That’s an insane tactic.” For those with a better grip on intellectual integrity and reality, there are a few bits of ‘evidence’ to consider.

“Dominion is going into hiding … Our government definitely seized those Scytl servers … The Dominion system was built to shift and delete votes … This is a worldwide fraud

The Trump Team’s Real Strategy. Sally Zelikovsky – “So, what’s really going on here?” … “I, too, have been baffled by the state court misses and can understand why people might conclude that Rudy and Lin Wood may be past their prime. But we should dig a little deeper into these state court cases and look at them from the point of view of strategy.” There is dissonance here, too.

Georgia Governor Calls for Audit of Signatures on Ballot Envelopes. Ivan Pentchoukov – The recount is plauded as “numbers don’t lie” but that denies GIGO – garbage in, garbage out. The Governor is addressing this. “he would sign off on the certification of the election results after the Peach State conducted a risk-limiting audit of the presidential election which showed Democratic nominee Joe Biden ahead of President Donald Trump by 12,284 votes.”

Cynicism jaded by experience. It’s not funny.

Cynicism jaded by experience versus reality stimulate dissonance … Why Trump Will Likely Win a Second Term. Phoenix Capital Research – “the election is a mess and from what I can tell, no one in the media is actually outlining what’s to come based on the law. Instead I’m seeing a lot of political opinion, being presented as fact, when it isn’t.” … “When the courts get involved in an election, it becomes an issue of evidence.”

Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell: “We’re Getting Ready To Overturn Election Results In Multiple States”. Tyler Durden – “The Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity agency issued a statement on Thursday calling the 2020 general election the “most secure in American history,” despite multiple legal challenges alleging a variety of alleged voting irregularities across a number of battleground states.” but how do they explain the anomalies in the processing of votes?

Election Fraud Is Not Funny. Tim Kowal – “If Democrats and media wished Americans would believe they were on the level when they called the election for Biden, they needed to wipe the smirk off their faces and play it straight about election fraud a long time before they embarrassed themselves for three years over a hundred grand of Facebook ads.”

Conspiracy Theory, Or Stolen Election? John Hinderaker – “if the United States is to avoid banana republic status, we need to institute more secure and reliable election procedures. No more ballot harvesting, no more millions of mail-in votes, and some reasonable attention paid to the machines and software that ultimately count the votes.”

“One more thing: liberals are quick to dub anything they don’t like a conspiracy theory. But four years ago, I wouldn’t have imagined that top officials of the FBI and the CIA would collaborate with Hillary Clinton’s campaign to propagate lies in order to try to swing the election to her, or failing that, to disable the incoming administration of the candidate that they didn’t favor. That scandal has greatly expanded my, and our, understanding of what may be possible. This isn’t your grandfather’s United States of America.

Twitter flags Nikki Haley for saying obviously true things. Jazz Shaw – the propagandists are getting aggressive. “rather than meekly accepting this next round of censorship, Haley pushed back. She asked why she was singled out for this sort of attention when Ayatollah Khamenei is allowed to tweet out Holocaust denial material.”

Law Firm’s Withdrawal Reflects Chilling Reality. John Hinderaker – “Not many years ago, every terrorist in Guantanamo Bay was represented by one of a group of America’s top law firms. For free. No one batted an eye. Now, the President of the United States is having trouble getting lawyers to represent him in asserting perfectly legitimate claims. Some dictator.”

Sidney Powell gives details about the election fraud Kraken. Andrea Widburg – “there’s always been the worry that these actions, while true, may not convince a judge (or nine justices) to overturn the election.”

Ignorance or Denial of the Obvious Doesn’t Diminish the Obvious. Jeff Davidson – “you can count on the media not printing a single word about such evidence. Ignorance or, more accurately, feigned denial of the obvious, however, in no way diminishes the obvious.”

Looking to Solzhenitsyn for clues about the present. Will Stoutamire – “Like many of us, Solzhenitsyn had been de facto silenced by the Western media and denounced as a nut for recounting the true history of the Bolshevik Revolution and its bloody aftermath as well as making warnings to the West.”

“Solzhenitsyn warned America and the West time and time again that abandoning its religious foundations and embracing secularism would in turn lead to total chaos, followed by a complete loss of freedom. America and the rest of the West are already in chaos. What follows is the people’s determination and destiny. Either way, we get the government we deserve.

The Left’s Wanton Violence Against the MAGA Marchers. Joseph Klein – “A preview of what’s to come if Biden-Harris take over.” Past is prologue? “Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa thugs harassed, threatened and assaulted pro-Trump demonstrators, who had peaceably assembled on Saturday in the nation’s capital for what was billed as the Million MAGA March. The radical leftists are preparing to own the streets, forcing law abiding Americans to either kowtow to their demands or get out of the way.” [but Trump is the fascist Nazi dictator Kristallnact evil?]

What Can Be Done for Michael Flynn? Jed Babbin – “A presidential pardon is the last thing he wants.” … “How Flynn reached this awful point is a lesson in FBI misconduct, abuse of power by former special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, and misconduct by the trial judge, Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. It goes back much farther — and higher — than that.”

Preserving courtroom and verdict integrity. Paul Driessen – “Big Media, Big Tech, Big Academia, the Deep State and the Cancel Culture clearly aligned with the Democrat Party, to resist, block, impede and impeach a duly elected President Trump, during and after the 2016 election and the 2020 election cycle.” … “Equally worrisome is growing evidence that the integrity of our courtroom proceedings and jury verdicts is also at risk”

The Notorious SAA: Democrats Denounce Alito After Years Of Praising Ginsburg For Controversial Comments. Jonathan Turley – “there is reason to be critical of Alito. However, the voices are coming from people who once cheered on such comments from Ginsburg. Now however there was nothing but utter disgust. This was not “Notorious” but nauseating.”

Trump Celebrates Moderna’s ‘95% Effective’ COVID-19 Vaccine, Reminds World It Happened ‘On My Watch’. Tyler Durden – “But we imagine the MSM will still find some way to deprive President Trump of “credit” for helping bring about this ‘breakthrough’.” … “Analysis of the data, covering more than 30,000 volunteers, showed the vaccine prevented virtually all symptomatic cases of the virus, as it appeared even more effective than Pfizer’s vaccine.” … “And then we get to do it all again next week (or perhaps a week or two later) when the AstraZeneca-Oxford or some other trial data hits.”

COVID-19 is distracting us from another medical emergency. Ross Clark – “The estimated number of deaths globally from measles climbed to 207,500 in 2019” … “If the first victim of war is truth, then the first victim of COVID-19 was a sense of proportion.” … “while COVID is mainly carrying off the old and already-sick, the vast majority of last year’s 200,000 measles victims were previously healthy children. … The second difference is that we already have a measles vaccine.”

COVID case increases vs. death increases. neo – “If Biden becomes the next president, I would not be the least bit surprised if, after his inauguration, COVID reporting shifts from alarm at high case rates to credit for lower death rates.” In the Reno area, active cases are about 1 in 500 and deaths continue in low single digits and the hospitals are running plenty of empty space but the hype is in overdrive.
