Political persecution rampage

“There were no guns nor ammunition, but they did have some kind of document spelling out a plan to march in a line through a downtown park and agitate passersby.” … “This is an important story. Not because “white nationalists” are involved. But because for curious reasons, the FBI is.” —  Eddie Scarry, The ‘White Nationalists’ At Idaho Pride Were The Least Armed That Day

“The Jan. 6 select committee and the legacy media outlets promoting the show trial completely ignore, however, the verifiable evidence of systemic violations of election law, illegal voting, and the constitutionally deficient execution of the November 2020 election—including issues Trump challenged following the election.” —  Margot Cleveland, Jan. 6 Committee Ignores Clear Evidence Of Broken Election Laws

“Our nation is being brutalized by violence in city after city … Criminals are being allowed to run free among law-abiding citizens in Democrat-run cities throughout the country” … “Our media supported the rioters, too; they love nothing better than exacerbating an already explosive situation.  The media do not investigate the obvious possibility that the rioters were recruited and paid to do what they do.” … “Their way or the highway.  That pretty much sums up the American left today.” —  Patricia McCarthy, Who foments violence in America?

“compelling evidence of a massive, centrally coordinated conspiracy to commit vote fraud” … “D’Souza’s documentary is the seminal moment the tide washed away enough mud that, despite their shrieks and howls, the left can no longer hide the ugly truth of what it did.  Massive election fraud in 2020 is a conspiracy, but it is no longer merely a theory.” —  Charlie Johnston, D’Souza’s Mules Left Tracks

“much like Ali’s refusal to acquiesce to the draft in protest to the Vietnam War, Kaepernick’s protest of black men dying in police custody was not as cut-and-dried as a magazine writer would have you believe.” … “Ali went to jail for his protest – Kaepernick went to the bank for his” … “like Ali — who opposed the draft because of his religion — Kennedy is taking one for the team (as it were) for his religion. – Kaepernick kneeled to peddle shoes” — Don Surber: The politics of kneeling

“you’ll witness the indispensability of specialization, the value of skilled and serious workmanship, and many of the fruits of market-driven innovation” —  Don Boudreaux, Economic Lessons from “This Old House” – Cafe Hayek

“Declassified for Durham’s probe, a March 2017 memo prepared by Lisa Page for FBI head James Comey’s meeting with Congress’ “Gang of Eight” — the bipartisan House and Senate leaders who oversee the most classified stuff — was a total cook-up job.” … “Until the plotters are held accountable, there actually is good reason to worry about the future of democracy in America. ” — New York Post, The FBI knew RussiaGate was a lie — but hid that truth

“Until this becomes a national priority, creating a functional mental health care system that can identify, treat, and if necessary, hospitalize those who are mentally ill and dangerous or incapable of self-care, expect to see homelessness and mass shootings continue.” — Brian C. Joondeph, M.D.. It’s the Mental Health System, Stupid

“we see disparate justice. Indeed, the force of criminal justice brought harshly to bear on one side — even for legally protected conduct, while the worst criminal behavior that advances the Democratic party’s interests is ignored.” … “Do you really want to live in a country controlled by thugs? You think there aren’t enough banana republics in the world, and you want to add this country to the crowd?” —  Clarice Feldman, The Democrats: ‘A Criminal Organization’

“The media is as much to blame as the Dems. They could halve the murder rate within a few years if they just started telling the truth and stopped enabling their Democratic partners in crime.” —  Jack Cashill, When Dem gun rhetoric gets downright dangerous

“It was once widely understood in the United States that vociferous debate and vigorous policy disagreement were features of a healthy American society. Hashing out arguments over contested issues in the public square had two immediate salubrious effects: it allowed the average American to appreciate the “pros” and “cons” of consequential policy decisions, and it provided those whose viewpoints did not win the day to nonetheless speak their minds.” … “If debate and disagreement are no longer understood as hallmarks of the American system of democracy, then that system will quickly go up in smoke. If individual Americans are treated as “domestic enemies” for their political beliefs, then spiraling violence becomes inevitable.” —  J.B. Shurk, When Name-Calling Ends Debate, Violence Becomes Inevitable

“The rule of thumb with Democrats is that, when they accuse you of doing something, you can be assured that it is they who are doing it.” … “What we’re seeing is the complete breakdown of our constitutional government at the very highest levels. I applaud the judge in Texas who pushed back but that’s just a pebble trying to divert a raging river of lawlessness.” —  Andrea Widburg, A Texas court strikes a blow against the Biden administration’s lawlessness

“The Silicon Valley motto should be “I create inequality by hating inequality.” … “The self-declared most caring, virtuous, and moral in the end proved the most narcissistic, selfish, and self-centered. Yes, the rich left-wing California elites are many things, but utterly selfish explains what they do unto others.” —  Victor Davis Hanson, The Selfish Californian.

The Fourth Estate or Fifth Column ? Pegging the BS meter

 

“little attention will be paid to the protesters who have been rotting in a special D.C. jail after their protest that went badly awry.” — Chris Donaldson, ‘We are no longer free’: Message from condemned J6 protester is CRITICAL for every single American

“This Committee is not about seeking the truth,” Stefanik said. Meanwhile, the committee established to probe the Capitol riot declares Pelosi’s own culpability off-limits in pursuit of prosecution against political dissidents. — Tristan Justice, 5 Questions For The J6 Committee’s Theatrical Production

“Three new high-profile documents are driving the Democrats insane and encouraging them and the Trump-hating Republicans to double down with the Jan. 6 hearings.” … “Now, with the Jan. 6 Committee, they are hoping to complete the cover-up. I predict they will fail — because the American people have already seen through them. But in the meantime, it could get very ugly.” — Kenneth R. Timmerman, The Show Trials Begin.

“What still managed to surprise me was the media’s complicity. … how thoroughly corrupt, complicit, and in cahoots with the Democrats and how thoroughly on board with this charade America’s so-called journalistic establishment has revealed itself to be.” — Stu Tarlowe, There was only one real surprise in the January 6 TV show trial

“It’s bad enough that someone in America could become so unhinged by nonstop far-left media propaganda that he’d try to kill a Supreme Court justice. But far worse is the blasé reaction by the Democratic Party and its extreme-left pro-abortion allies to the attempted murder of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.” “By egging on the demonstrators and ignoring their illegal behavior, the Democrats have contributed to an atmosphere of violent intimidation. It’s a direct subversion of our constitutional form of government, a blatant attempt to weaken and undermine the integrity of one of the three co-equal branches of our federal government.” — The Democrats’ ‘Insurrection’ Against The Supreme Court – Issues & Insights

“The healthy mind must learn through unhappy experience when mutual acceptance and respect are absent. Therefore, it has been hard to admit that over time Democrats have succumbed to beliefs and policies based on hatred of us and our children.” … “The tragedy in Uvalde, Texas has nothing to do with guns. It resulted from decades of tearing down the integrity of our civilization, marginalizing father-led families, and culturally and chemically poisoning our children.” — Deborah C. Tyler, Why Do Democrats Hate Our Children?

Enough already! What do we have to do to stop this nonsense?

“Looking at the trial of Michael Sussman, who represented Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, from Israel, it’s impossible not to draw parallels to the Netanyahu trial.” … “Whether or not Netanyahu is exonerated, whether or not Sussman’s acquittal was justified, the fact is that no verdict will bring justice or bridge the divides in American and Israeli societies. So long as the legal systems that created Russiagate and ousted Netanyahu from power remain corrupted by politicized bureaucrats, our societies will only grow more divided and unstable.” — Caroline Glick, From Washington to Jerusalem, the Conspiracies Are Unraveling.

“The United States must get serious about its own survival as a republic dedicated to protecting individual life and liberty.” … “we can’t recall a bigoted jury decision.” – Austin Bay, Political Corruption and Injustice Threaten U.S. National Security, by Austin Bay | Creators Syndicate

“The Democrats should be held accountable for last night’s attempt on the life of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Most notably, of course, Chuck Schumer issued a fatwa against Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch, which last night’s would-be assassin apparently attempted to execute.” … “It is worth noting that the would-be assassin who was arrested last night had in his possession more firearms (one or more, we are told) than all of the January 6 “insurrectionists” together (zero).” – John Hinderaker, Are the Democrats to Blame?

“Roske is somewhat unbalanced … This is precisely the sort of person likely to act on incitement to violence by the likes of Chuck Schumer.” … “Ironically, Roske, who was armed with a Glock handgun and intended to kill Justice Kavanaugh, wanted more stringent (unconstitutional) gun control laws. Who can debate liberal logic?” … “The Democratic Party and the liberal movement need to do some serious soul-searching in the wake of this attempted assassination. They caused it. They foreseeably brought it about. It was more or less inevitable, in view of the disgusting tactics they have used in recent years. And now they have run for cover.” —  John Hinderaker , More On the Would-Be Assassin

“This one is between two factions of elected politicians in D.C. locked in a death match that’s never happened before.  It is one that began roughly 12 years ago during Obama’s first administration and is being carried out on various battlefields and in various ways.” – Tim Jones, The second Civil War is already underway

“Leftists in the Biden administration have finally outrun their headlights and (again) exposed the failures of Marxism. What must we do to stop them now that we have that hard proof?” … “As together we “stand athwart history and yell STOP!” to this madness and this evil.” – Lewis Dovland, STOP IT! Just Stop It!

“The FBI deceived the House, Senate and the Justice Department about the substance and strength of evidence undergirding its counterintelligence investigation of President Trump” – Paul Sperry, FBI Chief Comey Misled Congress’s ‘Gang of 8’ Over Russiagate, Lisa Page Memo Reveals

“The Post is right, and here’s how we know. YouTube has no problem posting videos that claim the 2016 election was stolen.” … “Apparently, talk of election fraud is only “dangerous” when a Republican says it. If you’re a Democrat, you are free to say whatever you want.” – YouTube’s Selective Ban On ‘Stolen Election’ Videos – Issues & Insights

“Today the Missouri attorney general announced subpoenas of seven school districts in response to parent complaints of racist instruction and intrusive surveys administered to their children allegedly without prior parental notice.” … “The investigation uncovers Missouri public schools forcing students to participate in exercises that shame children for their skin color and teaching that races are inherently unequal, which violate the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.” —  Joy Pullmann, Mo. AG Uncovers Systemic Use Of Racist Curricula In Public Schools

 

“It is difficult for people accustomed to today’s media environment to appreciate what a monoculture the media was back then, in that pre-Internet, pre-Cable, pre-Limbaugh era” … “s with the alternative media, developing some degree of parity in the tech world is essential if conservatives are to withstand attacks from the progressive apparatus. Otherwise, as McCarthy correctly notes, the outcomes are almost preordained.” —  Glenn Reynolds, Nixon’s Revenge

Moral failures with blindness

The Structural Legal Rot Runs Deep. Clarice Feldman — “It will be a lot longer and harder to turn the country around than you might otherwise imagine.”

Dismantle the D.C. Company Town. Roger Kimball — “It’s time that Americans faced up to the reality that their governing apparat is a corrupt, self-engorging Leviathan” … “The real issue here is something I have been harping on for the last couple of years: the issue of the decaying legitimacy of our institutions. Increasingly, once-respected institutions like the FBI, Congress, the Justice Department, to say nothing of the educational establishment and corporate culture, have lost their claim on the people’s allegiance”

Jonathan Turley: Dems May Be Ensuring Their Own Destruction With Latest Moves by Jan. 6 Cmte. Nick Arama — “This has not been the way the DOJ has handled such things in the past, and that’s a problem”

The Depp Trial & The Demise Of The ACLU | ZeroHedge. Jonathan Turley — “With this free fall at ACLU has come an endless line of controversies” … “It ultimately was the reputation of the ACLU, not Depp, that may have suffered the most in the trial. Ironically, for critics, Amber Heard became the fitting face and ambassador of the ACLU: conflicted, confused, and corrupted.”

Another Justice Department Fail: The Flynn Unmasking. Julie Kelly — “Bash’s punt on the matter doesn’t change the fact that classified information was leaked to the media by several Obama intelligence officials to destroy a three-star general, sabotage the Trump White House, and justify the destructive special counsel investigation that undermined the first half of Trump’s term. And the public, more than five years later, still doesn’t know who did the leaking.”

School shootings show our leaders, not Americans, are the moral failures. Glenn H. Reynolds — “when the facts come in, it invariably turns out that the tragedy doesn’t stem from a spiritual failing in America but rather from the fact that some (most?) of our institutions are run by creeps, crooks and incompetents”

The US ‘Has the Most Mass Shootings’—and Other Bogus Gun Research. John Stossel — “Government’s desire to control us—and to lie to make its case—is the real emergency.”

Disarming Victims Is a Dumb Way to Fight Crime. Charlie Johnston — “One can only suppose that, confronted with such angry, shrieking hysteria, conservatives are trying to mollify a crazy person rather than reason with a serious person” … “Gun control will make things worse.  Crime control will begin to stabilize things.  Let’s get serious.  Start by understanding that disarming victims is a dumb way to fight crime.”

Dems Put Trump Advisor In ‘Shackles’ in Latest Political Hit Job. Walt Rasinger — “Unlike Lerner, who routinely invoked the 5th Amendment during her testimony, Navarro has taken the accusations head-on”

After Francis, What Stability? Rod Dreher — “as someone who admires the Catholic Church and who wants it to be strong, and as someone who is passionately interested in religion, I can’t avert my eyes from the iceberg towards which Capt. Bergoglio is sailing his ship. In fact, I think he’s broadsided the thing, for the same reasons Kale Zelden and Larry Chapp do.”

Funny how that works – predictable antics

Watergate in the balance – Scott Johnson — “As a candidate with no government power, Hillary Clinton seems to have lacked the resources Nixon thought he could draw on. Yet the Clinton campaign successfully defamed candidate Trump, compromised or paralyzed his presidency, and did real damage to the United States. The sinister role of the prestige press in retailing the Russia hoax deserves special mention. It helps to have the press in bed with you.”

Tale of Two Trials: How Sussmann is Receiving Every Consideration Denied to Flynn – JONATHAN TURLEY — “Whereas Flynn’s prosecution was a no-holds-barred affair, Sussmann’s prosecution has been undermined by a series of unfavorable rulings by the court” … “While the judge in Flynn’s case was eager to remove obstacles from the prosecution’s path, the judge in Sussmann’s case seems to have created a virtual obstacle course for Durham.”

What does hate get you? – H.P. Smith — “We are in this mess because the Left once again has showed their true colors.  The accepting, caring and tolerant Left reaffirmed that they are indeed none of the above, and that they are actually fueled almost exclusively by hatred”

Elongate — John Hinderaker — “A woman has made a hearsay allegation against Elon Musk” … “Funny how that works: no one needed to know any of this until Musk undertook to buy Twitter and turn it into a free speech zone”

Climate Risk and Wall Street Meet Cancel Culture — Steven Hayward — “Stuart Kirk, head of “responsible investing” for HSBC, gave a presentation at a Financial Times “Live Moral Money Summit Europe” a few days ago in which he shredded the climatista claim about financial climate risk.” … “Needless to say, you can’t say this! And so the predictable has happened:”

The Collapse of Trust – Allan J. Feifer — “The issue at play now is that the majority of Americans have lost trust in our ability to govern and also, whether our leaders are even telling us the truth or are we simply being manipulated?” … “We have arrived at a point that appears intentional. The utter disregard for breaking the sacred bond between ordinary Americans and their leadership, fealty to the principles and practices of a nation that has stood for good, stood for a better tomorrow, and been that beacon of hope to the entire world is now in doubt.”

What some do to win

The bullying of America – Bob Weir — “When are conservatives going to fight back against the violence of the left?  It’s glaringly obvious that the radicals in the Democrat party are using tactics that put many people in fear of physical assault or damage to their property.”

The Demented – and Selective – Game of Instantly Blaming Political Opponents For Mass Shootings – Glenn Greenwald — “All ideologies spawn psychopaths who kill innocents in its name. Yet only some are blamed for their violent adherents: by opportunists cravenly exploiting corpses while they still lie on the ground.”

The New Racial Hatred – D.F. Mulder — “America has truly reached Soviet levels of mass delusion and absurdity. The official lines on the most important subjects of the day are not just inconsistent with reality, they are the complete inversion of it.” … “Violence and radicalism are increasingly inevitable given the dishonesty of our bottomlessly corrupt ruling class. Resistance is inevitable. It seems everyone intelligent knows something is horribly amiss in America today. After all, how much nonsense can a people really tolerate?”

What it means that Hillary Clinton did it – David Zukerman — “The harm done to the United States by the perfidy of the Clintonistas cannot be overemphasized.” … “Never in the history of this Republic have so many citizens been so ill-served by so many “elitists” in government and the media.”

CNN’s Eye is on the Sparrow – Clarice Feldman — “while these FBI agents (and others who colluded with Clinton) in this nefarious scheme would appear to be reasonable targets of the Special Prosecutor, as long as partisan judges in the District of Columbia continue to condone sociopathic behavior by their party through biased rulings that make successful prosecution iffy, that next step — or any other by the prosecutor — is problematic.”

Hillary Factor: Evidence now shows false Russia collusion story began and ended with Clinton —  John Solomon — “under cross-examination by Special Counsel John Durham’s team, Mook was forced to concede two extraordinary facts” … “The evidence is now complete that Hillary Clinton was at the beginning and the end of the Russia collusion false story. – History will now add it to her biography of scandal, a three-decade legacy that includes the Whitewater S&L scandal, the White House travel office firings, the China fundraising scandal, the subpoenaed law firm records secreted away in the White House residence and the pay-to-play schemes of the Clinton Foundation.”

Dems Interfere in NV GOP Primary to Stop Trump-Backed Candidate — Jordan Dixon-Hamilton — “Democrat super PACs are posing as Republicans and spending millions of dollars in Nevada’s Republican gubernatorial primary in an attempt to prevent former President Donald Trump’s pick, Joe Lombardo, from becoming the GOP nominee.” … “these two examples in Nevada are just part of a broader nationwide Democrat strategy of meddling in GOP primaries ahead of the November midterm elections, where many pundits expect them to get trounced”

Can Adults No Longer Consent? — John Hinderaker — “Consent is no longer enough. The latest case in point is that of David Sabatini, said to be one of the world’s greatest scientists. His career has been derailed because a former lover has now turned on him. It is a sad story, certainly for Sabatini and maybe for the rest of us, as his cancer research is among the world’s most promising. Sabatini was forced out of MIT and his career has been downhill from there”

Cheesed off?

Imagine the Unimaginable – VDH – “Americans are now entering uncharted, revolutionary territory. They may witness things over the next five months that once would have seemed unimaginable.” … “Remember all these catastrophes are self-induced. They are choices, not fate.”

There Will Be Blood – “Progressive activists have long fallen on the tactic of resorting to violence, destruction, and even bloodshed to get their points across.” … “The Progressives are akin to spoiled children – if they don’t get their way, a temper-tantrum is inevitable. While I hope that I am wrong; I fear what is to come”

Liberals: Shut up and Sit Down – “If you wondered why liberals can be shown demonstrable, provable facts and not change their minds, wonder no more: They are not listening.” … “We are awake now and mightily cheesed off. They have tried to baptize this cat but are getting clawed raw. The sleeping dragon is up. The wheels are coming off the train. Choose your metaphor, but however you dress up this lipsticked pig this will not end well for the emperor and his clothes.”

Years into the assault

The License to Leak: How Years of Attacks on the Court Created a “By Any Means” Mentality – JONATHAN TURLEY – “Most court observers surely must have hoped this was an elaborate hoax, that someone had not shattered every legal and judicial ethical rule by leaking a draft opinion. But there was no denial from the court” … “It was a collective effort by those who bred contempt for our legal institutions and values. This is not a crisis of the court. It is a crisis of faith”

Role of Journals and their Editors in Preserving False Research Findings – Watts Up With That? – “we describe our experience of how journals and their editors work to preserve false findings in meta-analysis studies they publish” … “The business model of many journals promotes incentives for the author and publisher to work against sound science and interest of the public. Our position is that it is time for the public to view any meta-analysis published in the journal PLOS One as untrustworthy until proven otherwise.”

What ‘Moving On’ Has Cost Us –  “Republicans, as a party and as a mindset, are incapable of enforcing justice even when enjoying control of both houses of Congress and the White House. When they reach the threshold requiring a decision, they inevitably choose to “move on” instead”

The true import of the Alito draft –  “What makes the decision so significant is that it’s not even just about the Constitution; instead, even more specifically, the Alito draft is about the Supreme Court’s constitutional jurisprudence”

 Remote learning was a disaster — Joanne Jacobs “students who stayed home for most of 2020-21 fared much worse” … “Did keeping schools closed save lives? Apparently not” … “In addition to the “lost” or “unfinished” academic learning, out-of-school students lost social skills”

Fraud swamp

How America Became La La Land. Victor Davis Hanson – “America these last 14 months resembles a dystopia. It is becoming partly the
world of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, and partly the poet Homer’s land of the Lotus-Eaters.” … “Biden then concocted the perfect recipe for bringing back the inflation of the 1970s …  unilaterally and simply destroyed existing immigration law … hellbent on his way to fulfilling his campaign   promises of eliminating the use of natural gas and oil on his watch” … “all of these problems are self-induced”

THE BIG LIE: The Most Obvious Reason the 2020 Election Was Stolen – Democrats Attack, Block and Threaten to Sue All Efforts to Uncover Election Fraud. Joe Hoft – “With no actual accomplishments to point to, having ruined everything that was running so well for the American people, Democrats are turning to what has become their most effective electoral tool in recent years: Fraud”

Heartbreak on Capitol Hill as Democrats Come to a Realization About Jan. 6 Committee – RedState. Sister Toldjah – “going into overdrive in giving the stories their best spins in hopes of distracting people from the self-destruction currently taking place within the Democratic party”

Fraud is the Only Issue – American Thinker. Steve Feinstein – “Democrat policies have tangibly and dramatically degraded the quality of daily life in  America, to the point where many people are starting to doubt that things will ever return to normal”

Don Surber: What the press got wrong on DeSantis and Disney: Everything. “hysteria designed to undercut an elected legislature in an election year on behalf of a private company – Disney is not the victim, no matter how loud and often the media says this”

Connecting the Dots on Early COVID Treatments – American Thinker. Antonio R. Chaves – “Given that there is no moral or scientific basis for this unprecedented disruption of the doctor-patient relationship, why are the CDC and FDA doing this?” … “If you still believe the lockdowns, mandates, and medical recommendations were hammered out in good faith, I have some Moderna stock to sell you”

A Mostly Wind- & Solar-Powered US Economy Is A Dangerous Fantasy | ZeroHedge. Francis Menton via The Gatestone Institute. – “If you propose a predominantly wind/solar electricity system, where fossil fuel back-up is banned, you must, repeat must, address the question of energy storage”

When the fist priority is to win the play

Truth, ethics, morality, – everything else – takes a back seat. Win the case but forget the game (e.g. justice) 

The Lawyers’ War on Law. Mark Pulliam — “This essay originally appeared in the pre-digital magazine The American Enterprise (published by the American Enterprise Institute) in March 2001. Written over 21 years ago in the wake of the 2000 election dispute in Florida, which was resolved in Bush v. Gore, I think my take has held up pretty well. Proven prescient, even”

The judge in a January 6 case should be disbarred. Andrea Widburg — “One of the most visible signs of our federal government’s corruption is the treatment being meted out to the January 6 prisoners, who have been deprived of their express and inherent rights under the Constitution, one of which is the right to an impartial judge”

Legal Filing Sets Internet Ablaze With Reference to FBI/ATF ‘Assets’ ‘Embedded’ on Jan. 6. Nick Arama — “from defense attorney David Fischer in one of the Jan. 6 cases, which the folks at The Epoch Times found. Fischer claims in a footnote that “[a]t least 20 FBI and ATF assets were embedded around the Capitol on J6,” according to the filing. Where did that come from?”

More Jan. 6 Select Committee Nonsense Revealed as CNN Targets Private Texts of Rep. Chip Roy, Sen. Mike Lee. Rebecca Downs — “It’s seriously worth wondering who this audience is that CNN is trying to rile up and appeal to. Perhaps they themselves don’t even know”

I’m a Proud Member of the Rebel Alliance. Clarice Feldman — “Are we all serfs kept under the thumb by platforms secretly subsidized by the Deep State and foreign interests? That the SEC has decided to investigate other Musk operations  suggests to me that his offer to buy Twitter has set off serious alarms in the galactic empire. Musk seems to think so”

Elon Musk runs into the Twitter poison pill. Monica Showalter — “If you want a classic example of “small,” a pretty good place to look is on the hallowed heights of the Twitter elite” — “these Twitter elites are saying that power matters more to them than money.  That’s weird stuff coming from a business.  They don’t seem to operate on a profit basis, and anyone involved with this company is a victim”

intellectually and morally bankrupt

Start at 1600 and 1633 to know it’s not a new phenomena but you’d think people would learn. bad think. — see what is happening in the science community and classroom and wonder why. Then there’s the media and the Left’s idea of protecting the children …

COVID, Gender, Climate, and the Collapse of Science. Neil A. Kurtzman — “As many scientists have behaved like fools, the discipline itself is in jeopardy of being thought stained and unreliable.” — “The loss of core beliefs is fatal to self-government. The value of science to the health of the planet and its occupants is almost beyond measure … It would be the cruelest of fates if science were brought down by those who claim to speak in its name”

‘Ideological Intolerance’ invading science classrooms. Eric Utter — “Students are increasingly displaying “ideological intolerance in the science classroom,” according to Williams College Associate Professor of Biology Luana Maroja” — “What does it tell you about leftists/progressives that they don’t believe certain minorities are capable of being…capable? Or reasonable?”

What Disproves the ‘White Supremacy’ Narrative. William Sullivan — “they’ve gotten creative in recent decades, finding their magic beans … The intention, of course, is that the reader will assume that this disparity exists primarily due to racial discrimination in our society.  Notably missing, however, is literally any other demographic data whatsoever beyond that binary comparison” — “imagine being so intellectually and morally bankrupt as to see all of this easily recognizable evidence, yet still try to argue that “white people earn more than black people, and therefore racism.”  Then, you’ll better understand the true nature of those wicked race hustlers who push this toxic swill on our children and tear our social fabric apart”

Where’s NY Post’s Pulitzer? Don Surber — “It is a great and true newspaper story that puts _All the President’s Men_ to shame” — “the media stopped caring about reporting the truth a generation ago. It is all about promoting socialism and protecting the deep state now. The communists knew how to do it.”

Creepy Joe Biden, groomer-in-chief. Don Surber — “The sudden push by Democrats for pedophile rights — Minor Attracted People or MAP as they say — should surprise no one” — “Joe Manchin is cool with light sentences for child pornographers and abusers of children, even those who torture babies. – All the party’s apparatchiks are. Their voters are not there.” – “The media is totally cool with this because stopping Trump from making America great again was of paramount importance”

It’s just words on paper

Biden Administration To Demand Colleges Erase Women’s Sports, Due Process, Free Speech, And Men And Women. Madeline Osburn – “as the rules are finalized, the return of campus kangaroo courts is likely to be overshadowed by the current culture war spotlight on
women’s sports.”

Joe Biden Responds to Sacramento Shooting by Pushing Existing California Gun Controls. AWR Hawkins – “California already bans ghost guns … has required background checks for all gun sales since the 1990s … has banned “assault weapons” since the 1990s … bans “high capacity” magazines … Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is pushing to allow private citizens to sue gun makers … Additionally, California has a red flag law, gun registration requirements, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, a “good cause” requirement for concealed carry permit issuance, a ban on campus carry for self-defense, a ban on teachers carrying on K-12 campuses for classroom defense, and a limit on the number of guns law-abiding citizens can buy each month.”

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson rejects America’s very foundation. Andrea Widburg – “the fundamental premise underlying America’s entire constitutional political system: All people have inherent rights upon which government cannot infringe.” – “For a judge to deny these unalienable, inherent rights should instantly disqualify him or her from sitting on a federal bench, especially the Supreme Court. Yet deny those rights is exactly what Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson did.”

Western Suicide. S.R. Piccoli – “western civilization is not even close to what its detractors think it is, namely some narrow,
small-minded thing called western. It is instead “an inheritance, constantly expanding, constantly including new things. It is something which has given us the knowledge of the human heart, which
has enabled us to produce not just wonderful economies and the wonderful ways of living in the world that are ours, but also the great works of art, the religions, the systems of law and government, all the other things which make it actually possible for us to recognize that we live in this world, insofar as possible, successfully.” – What you need to do, Sir Roger concluded, “is engage in dialogue, which is what civilization is about.”

It’s the children. Here’s How

The
Democrats have a pedo problem
. Todd Gregory and Erik Gregory –
“From CNN producers to Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) station
chiefs and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) field agents; from
the woke Disney corporation to Democrat donors; from Hollywood to the
North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA); from Facebook/Meta
to the Lincoln Project to America’s public school system — the
progressive Left has a demonstrated prurient interest in underage
children. – “Instead of truth and exposure, we have media
silence.” – “If the mental health “professionals” of
the progressive American Psychiatric Association (APA) weren’t
themselves so deeply mentally and emotionally disturbed, the
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) would do
a deep dive on why the denizens of the left seem vastly more
predisposed to acts of pedophilia than traditionalists and people on
the Right.” – “To rephrase a couple modern figures of speech:
Democrats gonna Democrat. And yes, that is who they are.”

Biden
Administration Decides Mutilating Children Is a Civil Right
.
Bonchie – “a topic so egregiously insane that I almost feel like
I’m covering satire” – “The Biden Administration, via the
DOJ, has sent a letter to attorneys general around the country
threatening to sue if states attempt to stop the mutilation of
children in the form of “gender reassignment” surgery, hormone
blockers, and other actions that change the natural development of a
child.” – “this is truly sick and demented stuff” – “How
does a society sustain itself when one side can’t even agree on the
basic premise that children shouldn’t have their bodies mutilated
in order to “affirm” fairly normal childhood confusion?”

Jan.
6 Witch Hunt Committee Wants Garland to Hunt Trump
. Robert
Spencer – “To the Americans who have managed to stay sane amid
the prevailing madness, Attorney General Merrick Garland is a
hyper-partisan authoritarian who has sicced the FBI on parents who
are concerned about their children, exaggerating imaginary threats
for political purposes while ignoring real terrorists. But to the
even more rabid members of the House Jan. 6 committee, Garland is a
big lovable marshmallow who has been far too easy on the traitor
Trump and his white supremacist followers.” – “Despite the
facts, however, the Jan. 6 committee plows on, in what is clearly an
attempt to stigmatize and open the door to the criminalization of
dissent from the Leftist agenda”

inexcusable.”

A lack of accountability

VDH sees sheer madness – the judicial oligarchy is on parade – the FDA, CDC, FBI, and the SEC are blowing smoke – 2020 vote fraud evidence continues to surface but the witch hunt is unabated – race baiting, sex grooming, lawyers to be violent in opposing open civil debate – it goes on and on

The Sheer Madness of Today’s Left. Victor Davis Hanson — “When ideologues demand power but cannot achieve it politically because they are cruel ideologues, expect more of their insanity to follow.” – “Yet madness is predictable when the unchecked left-wing’s demand for limitless and endless power collides with a hated, but unremorseful ideological agenda utterly divorced from reality.”

The problem with federal judges. Patrick Gibbs — “The nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court has only partly brought a spotlight on the abuse of our legal system and the Constitution by federal judges.” – “The case that best illustrates her arrogance of power was her decision (later reversed) in Make the Road New York v. Wolf, when she was a U.S. district judge in the District of Columbia.” – “When judges can use godlike powers to redefine the nature of humanity, they are well on their way to becoming masters of us all.”

FDA, CDC Guilty of Clinical Malpractice and Scientific Fraud by Inaction and Omission on mRNA Vaccine Safety Warnings. David Gortler — “federal agencies and manufacturers aren’t officially warning the American public about these risks, despite having been privy to this information for almost a whole year. Why? Because it would counter the narrative that taking endless vaccines and boosters is your patriotic duty.”

The Securities and Exchange Commission is growing like Godzilla. Andrea Widburg — “the SEC’s commissioners floated the idea of giving themselves a new power, one that Congress never contemplated: forcing America’s publicly traded companies to change their business practices to fight climate change.”

More Evidence of 2020 Voter Fraud. John Hinderaker — “John Lott has published a paper in which he applies three tests for voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.” – “The analysis is complicated, but Lott finds an excess 255,000 Biden votes in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.” – “It should have been obvious, but apparently came as a surprise to many, that there is no effective after-the-fact remedy for voter fraud.” – “We will find out in November whether voter fraud has been curbed, at least to some degree.”

The January 6 Witch Hunt Kills a Good Man. Rajan Laad — “If you enquire with anyone — even those who follow right-leaning media such as Fox News — about Matthew Perna, the response will likely be ignorance.” — “The best tribute to Matt is to ensure that no other citizens engaging in their democratic rights to protest ever face such an unfortunate fate.”

Are We Sure The 2020 Election Was Clean? I & I Editorial Board — “Americans have been warned by their superiors to not question the outcome of the 2020 election, because it will further the Donald Trump Big Lie that the presidency was stolen from him. Yet we continue to see shreds of evidence that say the Big Lie is in fact the claim that the 2020 election wasn’t corrupted.” – “the left has behaved in the most hysterical ways possible, feigning fear and ever searching for a fainting couch to fall into, shocked that some Trump voters actually have had the gall to express misgivings. ”

How does the FBI ‘lose’ a laptop like Hunter Biden’s? Monica Showalter — “Some things don’t make sense. – All of these anomalies point to why the Hunter Biden laptop actually is important to U.S. cyber security and does affect the job of protecting the U.S. from foreign cyberattacks. – Yet Vorndran is amazingly incurious.”

Chaos In the White House [Updated]. John Hinderaker — “Upon arriving back in Washington, a chastened Biden answers “No” when asked whether he was “calling for regime change.”

Banning Critical Race Theory. John Hinderaker — “The tricky thing, of course, is characterizing the teachings of CRT. The point is not to ban teaching about CRT, but rather to ban the pernicious doctrines that flow from CRT. Mississippi’s approach is simple and is based on the inherent racism of Critical Race Theory”

Why demands for Justice Thomas to recuse himself on Jan. 6 cases don’t meet the laugh test. Thomas Lifson (hypocrisy)

No, Justice Thomas Did Not Commit an Impeachable Offense. Jonathan Turley (law)

Judge Asserts Donald Trump ‘More Likely Than Not’ Committed Felony Obstruction. Bonchie — “Everything that’s old is new again, and the walls are closing in on Donald Trump” – “With all due respect to this Clinton-appointed judge, that’s one of the most insane interpretations of the law I’ve ever read.”

Another win for Trump, but it’s nothing to really celebrate. Rajan Laad — “Since the day Donald Trump won the Presidency in 2016, even before he was inaugurated, Democrats in Washington and in the media began their attempts to unseat him.” — “It is always most dangerous when the scornful have power. The Democrats have shown the country what they are capable of by abusing the power of the government to destroy their political opposition.” — “The fact that it took so long is a travesty because the process itself was the equivalent of punishment.”

Donald Trump Is Trending Huge On Twitter, Here’s Why. Hailey Sanibel — “For this episode of Trump Is Guilty Of Something Big, the charge is that there is proof of deleted phone calls on the day of January 6th”

On the YLS debacle. Scott Johnson — “the university is among those venues set apart for vibrant exchange of ideas. It is not the only venue. The courtroom is another. Though the manner in which such exchanges occur on campus and in court differs, both provide an orderly and controlled environment with the aim of ensuring a fair hearing of contending arguments. Actions intended to prevent such hearings injure the whole rationale of the academy and, indeed, the law.”

KBJ Hearings Typify Our Debased Political Discourse. David Catron –” Serious policy debates aren’t possible if basic terms no longer have commonly accepted meanings.” — “If politicians, judges, and other public officials camouflage their true positions and agendas with evasive and euphemistic language because they don’t believe the voters and their congressional representatives will support them, our political discourse becomes so debased that it is impossible to understand — much less trust.”

Disney executive who is the mother of a transgender and a pansexual child says she wants at least half of ALL future characters to be LGBTQIA or racial minorities: Theme parks are now banned from saying ‘hello boys and girls’.  Janon Fisher.

Race-baiting, sexuality dogma, and climate voodoo at the American Psychiatric Association. Deborah C. Tyler — “The article reports Dr. Levounis’s priorities and that “he plans to do the following:  Amplify the psychiatrist’s voice on critical social issues, such as systemic racism, homophobia, and climate change.” – Let’s deconstruct this trinity of social issues, which are of paramount concern to the incoming leader of American psychiatrists.” – “In this time of a tidal wave of mental illness in America, it is a disaster that psychiatry is turning away from the rigors and sacrifices of scientific medicine to fall into the quicksand of anti-scientific, self-serving progressive dogma.”

Instapundit: — “Justin Trudeau has become a punchline on the world stage — for good reason: This is a sad moment — for Canada and its standing within the free world.”

The Progressive’s Ukraine-Envy. Patrick M. Garry — “The envy is directed toward Ukraine, a country being pummeled by Russian tanks and missiles. A country where children, the elderly and the sick are being targeted with bombs.- And yet, it is also a country bravely standing up to one of the largest and best-equipped militaries on earth.  This courage, this love of home and country, this willingness to sacrifice life and fortune – this is the subject of American envy.”

The Democrats’ New ‘Latino’ Problem: The Ghost of James Monroe. Robert Oscar Lopez — “some disturbing maps have circulated showing the globe in terms of which nations have sanctioned Russia over her invasion of Ukraine” — “Most depressing is the fact that a lot of the world just doesn’t believe us” — “It is hard to interpret events as anything other than a massive blow to American credibility abroad.” — “now would be a good time for all those Critical Race theorists in New York and California to update their antiquated assumptions.”

Sure, bring back the 1950s. Don Surber — “Today’s fiction writing seems limited to news stories in NYT and WaPo. And their stories are lame with holes in their plots even a Russian tank commander could drive a convoy through.”

Thirsting for seriousness in the long-form podcast. Meriam Matthews — “It is now common to see lengthy presentations covering deep subjects on YouTube and on various podcasts.  It is also now common that millions, not thousands, of people are watching.” – “There is a thirst in the land, a hunger for seriousness that is lacking in short-form TV ”

Thomas Sowell, Monument to Intelligent Insight. John Dale Dunn — review of Maverick: A Biography of Thomas Sowell by Jason L Riley 304 pp, 18.69  Hardcover 16.69 Kindle, ISBN-10 ? : ? 1541619684  (Basic Books 2021) — “Thomas Sowell is an American literary and philosophical icon — a prolific genius who has graced us with his presence and his extraordinary essays, books and lectures for more than 50 years.”

Safeguards falling like dominoes

Defining ‘peaceful protest’ is like the SCOTUS nominee defining ‘woman’ – ideas need vetting – there is a praetorian guard – just ask Durbin – and some enlightenment on the reality of the effort to get a COVID vaccine up and out at warp speed.

What became of the DC truckers’ convoy? Michael Letts — “The officials in Washington didn’t learn anything from watching what happened in Ottawa, Canada earlier this year during the Freedom Convoy.” — “The government needs to start obeying the law and allow the truckers to pass through the city.  They have the right to protest peaceably.  If they aren’t allowed to do that, they will make sure to voice their frustration at the ballot box, and while D.C. officials may think they are safe from reprisal, federal officials are not.  If the unconstitutional leftists are voted out in November, our capital may be put under stricter federal oversight.”

The Power of Terrible Ideas. Rael Jean Isaac — “While many have criticized the current enthusiasm for judging the past by the standards of the present (and condemning those past leaders who did not meet them), few have noted how many currently dominant beliefs are totally disconnected from reality and have a profoundly destructive impact.” — “The attitude toward critics is key.  A scientific theory welcomes efforts to test it against empirical evidence.  Pseudoscience, depending for its “truth” on consensus, is deeply hostile to challenge.”

Justice Department Accused of Assault on Free Speech and Free Press in the Project Veritas Case. Jonathan Turley — “The concern is that the FBI is acting like a Praetorian Guard in acting on what is a crime ordinarily handled on a local level” — “The concerns over the Project Veritas investigation continue to mount, but neither Congress nor the media have demanded answers from the Biden Administration.”

This Tablet takedown of fact-checkers is worth a look. John Sexton — “Regular readers have probably seen most of the stories and controversies mentioned in the piece but still it’s something different to step back and look at the grand pattern.” — “Author Jacob Siegel is explicit about this entire cottage industry explicitly benefiting Democrats.” — “That fact-checking is less about truth and more about ideological control can be seen in the efforts to fact-check the Babylon Bee.”

Chairman Dick Durbin Claims Republican Members Asking for Reports Amounts to a ‘Fishing Expedition’. Rebecca Downs — “It’s not just that Democrats have forgotten how they’ve treated now Justice Brett Kavanaugh while they go after Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) for daring to address Judge Jackson’s record on sentencing sex offenders who prey on children, though that’s certainly continued to be an issue”

What Operation Warp Speed Did, Didn’t and Can’t Do.  Alex Tabarrok — “Many people, however, are concluding from the success of OWS that big Federal funding can solve many other problems at the same speed and scale and that is incorrect.” — “First, it’s important to understand that OWS did not create any scientific innovations or discoveries” — “So summarizing what do we need for another OWS? 1) Known science–scaling not discovering, 2) Lifting of regulations 3) Big externalities, 4) Pre-existing motivation.”

Lessons from political behavior

Romney and NR need to learn DeSantis rule 4 – KBJ was nominated for race and sex but proclaims ignorance of both concepts – the laptop resonates – protests and ‘The Children’ positions difficult to grasp – The Delphi Oracle is called

The Babylon Bee’s Twitter Resistance Is A Lesson In Taking On Tech Tyrants. Jordan Boyd — ‘Never censor yourself. Insist that 2 and 2 make 4 even if Twitter tries to compel you to say otherwise. Make them ban tens of millions of us.’

8 Lessons From The Ron DeSantis School Of Dominating The Corrupt Media. Elle Reynolds — “DeSantis isn’t the only Republican to put up a good defense against media bullies, but he’s made a brand out of going on the offensive too.”

Senate Democrats Praise National Review For Helping Their Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmation Efforts. Jordan Boyd — “Much like the White House and its cronies in the corrupt corporate media, National Review was quick to accuse Hawley of orchestrating a smear about the Breyer replacement nominee.”

Mitt Romney says GOP attacks on Ketanji Brown Jackson’s sentencing record for child pornography cases are ‘off course’. oseddiq@insider.com (Oma Seddiq) — [note the “attacks’ to label appropriate questions about a judicial record. also note the logical fallacy in the following quote] — “Fact checkers and legal experts have said the GOP claims lack context and are misleading, citing evidence that Jackson’s sentencing fell within the standards of most federal judges.”

Ketanji Brown Jackson’s anti-constitutional, pro–child predator views. Andrea Widburg — “Democrats’ statements today boiled down to three things: (1) We are so excited that you’re a Black female. (2) Republicans are racist for daring to inquire into your credentials and views. (3) Regarding those racist questions, we would never treat a Supreme Court nominee as disrespectfully as the Republicans are treating you.  (Their disgraceful treatment of Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Comey Barrett, Clarence Thomas, and Robert Bork has been memory-holed.)” — “What’s striking is how Jackson’s answers so often sound almost logical, but they’re not.  This surreal quality was especially apparent when she explained why she thought existing child pornography laws are too harsh.”

What does this boil down to?  It means that a person seeking to be installed as a Supreme Court justice — sworn to uphold the Constitution she’s charged with interpreting — buys into an ideological theory that says the Constitution is “roach powder” and inherently racist, making the American nation rotten from root to branch.  Her beliefs cannot coexist with being on the Supreme Court.  It’s like trapping matter and anti-matter in the same space.

Judge Nominated To Supreme Court On The Basis Of Her Sex Can’t Define ‘Woman’. Jordan Boyd — “Jackson was chosen to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer in fulfillment of Biden’s identity politics pledge to install a black woman on the Supreme Court. … As Blackburn noted in her response, the fact that Jackson couldn’t give “a straight answer about something as fundamental as what a woman is underscores the dangers of the kind of progressive education that we are hearing about.”

8 Joe Biden Scandals Inside Hunter Biden’s MacBook That Corporate Media Just Admitted Is Legit. Margot Cleveland — “These scandals are no longer just about Hunter Biden. They are about now-President Joe Biden, and we need answers.”

Barr: Biden flat-out lied about Hunter’s laptop — and so did the media. Ed Morrissey — “I was shocked by that,” Bill Barr told Fox News’ John Roberts. Really? No one who’s watched Joe Biden for any length of time could be surprised by Biden lying, especially in self-promotion. Even before becoming president, Biden has made a lifelong hobby of collecting Pinocchios.” — “Biden lied because he knew he could get away with it. He’s still lying because he knows the American media will still let him get away with it. They can’t afford to cover it now, at least not unless the Department of Justice actually does indict Hunter on corruption charges. The corruption extends much farther than Biden Inc — it extends right into the media’s executive suites. Jeff Zucker was only one example of it.”

Let’s play ‘spot the peaceful protester’. Kevin McGary — “The entire world seems to have pivoted to utter insanity.  Historical standards of decorum have been turned upside-down.”

Why do Democrats Hate Children?. Sandra Friedemann — “Every time there’s a headline involving Democrats and children it is evident that as a group, Democrats hate children. Not only do they appear to hate them, but they also appear to enjoy, support, and promote sexually and mentally abusing and killing them.”

‘Climate change’: An Ideologically Driven Movement. Alexander G. Markovsky — “Scientists have been telling us that humanity will end in ten years for the past half-century. Their track record predicting the future is less trustworthy than the prophecies of the Oracle of Delphi.” — “Global Warming or Climate Change is neither an economic nor environmental project; it is an ideologically driven movement. In an ideological struggle, the more determined and more vocal side usually wins regardless of the validity of the arguments. Hence, it doesn’t matter whether it is cooling, warming, or ambiguous climate change. It is, paraphrasing James Madison, an “instrument for bringing the many under the domination of the few.”

Judges versus the law

Derek just wants to be left alone – Courts confused may be the polite way to say it – Here comes another, comare to Barrett and Kavenaugh – Vermont wants to get rid of the excess (ugly) human baggage.

To Hell with These Leftists. Derek Hunter — “Men are men, women are women, they can live however they want but must not be empowered to force you to deny reality so they can feel good about themselves. If that bothers them, so what? If that hurts them, so what? Anyone interested in forcing you to do/say/think anything fake, anything you don’t believe or don’t want to, isn’t anyone you need to have in your life. They can’t just be ignored anymore, they must be defeated and destroyed, thoroughly.”

Pain and Loathing Commence After Surprise Ohio Redistricting Decision. Bonchie — “Partisan judges, many elected to their positions during the 2018 blue wave, have been a thorn in the side of Republican redistricting attempts over the last year. … It certainly feels as if the two major parties are playing under two different sets of rules.” – “On Friday, news broke that the Ohio Supreme Court had entered a final judgment on the overturned map. What that means is that the redistricting committee is not required to come back to the court for approval on the next map submitted. In short, any challenge of the latest map will need to be filed via a completely new lawsuit.”

Ketanji Brown Jackson: A+ Credentials, D- Judge. Ken Sondik — “For Brown, politics trumps the law.” – “Let’s look at two cases Jackson handled as a district court judge” – “Their message will be that Republicans oppose Jackson, the pick demanded by the pack of court loonies who dominate the Democratic Party, because she is a black woman. – Appoint a liberal activist in robes to satisfy the party’s social justice bosses, then play the race card to energize the black vote for the midterms and beyond. That’s the strategy. – It’s unfortunate. For the Democratic party, it’s also business as usual.”

Vermont leads the way … off the climate bureaucracy cliff. John Klar — “A recent Vermont legislative initiative purports to save the planet…. by “conserving” fifty percent of all Vermont territory for wildlife by 2050!”

How can so many be so obviously deluded?

Russia obsession morphed into TDS and the defensive shell became hardened to briittleness. The truth is coming through the cracks and spoiling the contents. Here are observations of behavior that show what happens.

SpyGate 101: A Primer On The Russia Collusion Hoax’s Years-long Plot To Take Down Trump. Margot Cleveland — “For those who care about our country’s future but don’t want to be buried in the minutia of the Russia collusion hoax scandal, here is your big-picture primer.”

Look How Media Propagandists Covered The Trump-Russia Hoax Vs. The Bombshell Biden Laptop Scandal. Jordan Boyd — “It’s worth contrasting how so-called journalists covered Biden family corruption versus real disinformation.”

How Dem officials, the media and Big Tech worked in concert to bury the Hunter Biden story. Kyle Smith — “The Times and other major papers simply ignored the substance of The Post’s scoop, and now their readers know, or rather have just been re-re-re-reminded, that they’re Democratic Party cheerleaders who even allow presidential candidates to dictate details of how they get covered. – The next time they “fact check,” the next time they cry wolf, who will believe them?”

The Post computes this, take 2. Scott Johnson — “The Post editorial reports the results of the paper’s efforts to obtain comments from the 51 “intelligence” experts. Here are the reported results:”

Democrats Admit Jan. 6 Committee Is All About Midterms. Tristan Justice — “Democrats running the Jan. 6 Committee finally admitted the obvious: it’s a show trial all about the midterms.”

Moderate Dem quits Congress in disgust, denouncing ‘rainbows and unicorns’. Monica Showalter — “With the Squad, the greenie lobby, the teachers’ unions, and the open borders industrial complex calling the shots in the Democratic Party these days, it’s obviously no picnic to be a moderate member of the Democrats in Congress.”

The Rise of Victimhood Culture. Rajan Laad — “If there is any consistent feature among contemporary liberals, it is their relentless virtue-signaling and symbolic displays of compassion.”

 

Why Are Liberals So Psychologically Needy and Inauthentic? Steven Hayward — “There is a strange pattern among liberals: over and over again they seem compelled for some reason to embellish their personal stories with exaggerations and falsehoods, apparently in an effort to make themselves seem more authentic.” – “maybe people who embrace the creed that truth is relative, and that the world can be bent endlessly to our own good will and idealism, who think the most important thing is “the narrative,” don’t think it’s a big deal to make stuff up in service of their cause.”

Another cop-killer fêted and fawned over. Stu Tarlowe — “If you’re surprised, shocked, or even outraged that a convicted cop-killer would be invited to be the guest speaker at an institute of higher learning, you may feel those emotions even more strongly when you learned that these invitations are hardly unprecedented.”

Europe’s Green Energy Policies Bought Russia’s War Machine. Michael Fumento — “Merkel & Co. really painted themselves into a corner by rejecting nuclear energy and relying on Russian fossil fuels.”

Disappointments – you;d think better from them but TDS is a potent poison

A turd in the punch bowl it is – MR isn’t ‘unreliable’ rather it’s where he’s reliable that’s the problem – 

The ugly hand of Vindman in that Schwarzenegger Russia video. Monica Showalter — “Arnold Schwarzenegger, the disgraced, discredited, washed-up actor who wrecked California as governor, came close to redeeming himself a little, with his beautiful nine-minute message to ordinary Russian trying to tell them the truth about the Ukraine war.”

Regarding Mitt Romney… Rajan Laad – “It is said that an unreliable ally is worse than a sworn enemy.” – “when an ally either chooses to be a bystander when you are attacked or sides with your assailant to attack you, the treachery is both shocking and unforgivable.”

The January 6 Committee Is Pushing Another Scandal That Isn’t. John Green — “as soon as they said “common law”, they were admitting that no actual written statute or law had been violated” – “We’ll also have proof beyond a shadow of a doubt that the January 6 committee is comprised of idiots, whose hatred trumps their legal training, oath of office, and common sense.”

When Trust and Safety Encounter Fact and Science. Pat Frank — “A pandemic burning in the background for some years has produced an increasing population of the media-disappeared — people the thought-police have banished — disappeared — from social media for having expressed unwelcome views”
