cataloging malfeasance

words must mean things we agree upon – “how ironic that the Left defames nearly half of America as dangerous “semi-fascist” extremists, white-raged and privileged, ultra MAGA, and guilty of all sorts of thought crimes from secession to civil insurrection? And what is the result?” … “We are reaching a critical juncture now in America. – Writing off half the population as irredeemable and deplorable or semi-fascists is not a sustainable proposition. And we can see how it is not.” — Victor Davis Hanson via American Greatness: Remembering Hate Speech: Victor Davis Hanson | ZeroHedge — “what we used to know as “hate speech” is now presidentially acceptable speech, and what has followed from it is no surprise.”

fears that bore out – “The tragic events of 9/11 marked a turning point in our nation’s recent civil rights history. First the terrorists attacked us—and then, in the name of national security, we began to attack ourselves. … This special law designed for an emergency has become a permanent addition to the government’s investigatory toolbox. The unfortunate reality is that the bulk of the actions taken by law enforcement under the Patriot Act have almost nothing to do with combating terrorism.” — Harmeet K. Dhillon: The Politicization of the Department of Justice | Imprimis — “We must find a way to return our Department of Justice to that central principle of American constitutionalism, as it carries out its duties in the name of Lady Liberty.”

consequences? – “The FBI has been under an unfavorable spotlight over its politicized activity under color of law enforcement … a case out in Los Angeles suggests there’s more than just a political ethics problem — there seems to be a straight ethics problem, a downright crime problem, and the shocking thing is that nobody seems afraid of going to jail for it.” — Monica Showalter: Is the FBI descending into a smash-and-grab gang? – American Thinker — “Whatever it is, there needs to be some kind of righting of course as this lawsuit proceeds. Someone’s got to pay for these thug ethics and reform the agency that has clearly gotten out of control on multiple fronts.”

twisting in the wind – “I am proud to be considered a non-intellectual who does my own research, tells the truth that the climate is and has always changed cyclically and naturally. For telling the truth, I am disparaged as being anti-science, stupid, a climate change denier. I am constantly called a far-right extremist, deplorable, and compared to a domestic terrorist.” — Jack Hellner: The media and other Democrats will seek to destroy any Republican candidate – American Thinker — “I will proudly vote for people who have common sense, who are considered anti-intellectual and understand that the government is not the solution for much and vote against self-righteous elitists who consider themselves smarter than the rest of us no matter how stupid and destructive their policies are.”

conversation needs talking and listening (and honesty) – “It’s because our bureaucratic overlords and their Democrat sponsors are still not listening to the grievances of a large, and growing, number of Americans.” — John Green: There’s a Reason Conservatives are Becoming Less Tame – American — Thinker — “We’re still shouting — louder every day. Our discontent hasn’t turned into a brawl yet — and it doesn’t need to. But the time for “tame” is long past.”

climate brouhaha examples: “Establishment climate science has become infatuated by its own imagined expertise and importance.” — Norman Rogers: The Climate Crisis Lie – American Thinker — and  — “It is the height of naïveté to think our economic competitors in the world like China and India will wreck their economies based on a fraudulent global warming hypothesis.” — Guy K. Mitchell, Jr.: Global warming pseudoscience is poised to wreck the US economy – American Thinker

propaganda, power politics, under cover warfare

purpose of communication? – “Orwell was concerned above all about the particular threat posed by totalitarianism to words and language” … “The parallels between Orwell’s nightmarish vision of totalitarianism and the totalitarian mindset of today, in which language is policed and controlled, should not be overstated.” — Bruno Waterfield via Why Orwell Matters | ZeroHedge

rationalize this! – “The uproar at Martha’s Vineyard prompted the Democratic hierarchy to do some explaining” — Victor Davis Hanson: Martha’s Meltdown Model | RealClearPolitics

failure of the court – “The U.S. Supreme Court has made clear that the president himself, not any other part of the U.S. government, has the final say over what constitutes a classified document” — Andrea Widburg: The Eleventh Circuit’s unconstitutional ruling against Trump – American Thinker

AG malconduct – “The criminal cases have fallen flat because of the need to prove actual criminal intent, … What’s left in what has clearly become a prosecution driven by the political need to do something ahead of 2024 is this civil suit. Basically, same accusations, same weak evidence, but lower standards of proof with lower penalties.” — Peter Van Buren: The ‘jail Trump’ mania reaches its sad end – The Spectator World

blood sport – “One favorite technique of mass-murdering communist dictators is using their country’s “justice” system to destroy their political opponents. … the rationale requires that one abandon the most basic principles of a fair justice system, the principle that everyone is innocent until proven guilty.” — Richard McDonough: Stalin, and New York’s Attorney General Letitia James, are Proved Wrong – American Thinker

damage done – “” —  Mollie Hemingway: FBI’s Matt Gaetz Operation Silenced An Effective GOP Voice

The Department of Justice and the FBI are out of control. The propaganda press are operating as co-conspirators in the operations they run against the American people. Should Republicans be able to take control of one or both houses of Congress, their task of helping save the republic must begin with using their oversight and purse power to dramatically rein in bureaucratic tyranny.

reference list for comparison – “Thank goodness we have people like Trump, and Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis who fight back against the cabal instead of act as wimps in the face of Joe Biden, his lies, his Democrats, and the pretend-media that supports them so they are able to destroy Republicans in general, and, in fact, the United States. ” — Jack Hellner: Trump had to tweet to offset the misinformation that was spread about him every day – American Thinker

evil lurks here – “Despite all the preparations I’ve suggested, when the rogue FBI comes a knocking at your door, you’re screwed. With the help of Deep State judges and the fake-news media, the FBI will happily ruin you, your family, your finances, and your reputation” — Pete McArdle: How to Prepare for a Pre-Dawn Visit From the FBI – American Thinker

A stand for justice – “The raid is an excellent example of how the Deep State uses the full power and weight of the federal government to intimidate, harass, and imprison those who dare to stand up in opposition to the unconstitutional acts and abuse of power.” — Ron Wright: Raid on Mar-a-Lago: Judge Cannon Stands in the Breech Against the Deep State – American Thinker — “This raid was just the last act in a series of criminal actions by this coup to undermine the foundation of our Constitutional Republic and install a totalitarian administrative state.  The unhinged yelling by President Biden that we must save our democracy from the semi-fascist MAGA Republicans that seek to overthrow our government is manifestly spurious.”

what the ? — “the district court in Philadelphia investigated and dismissed the charge earlier this year” … “Since Joe Biden was inaugurated as president, his Department of Justice and the FBI have targeted Trump-supporters, conservatives, and pro-lifers.” … “Dissenters will be threatened with secret dossiers and targeted with raids, confiscations, and arrests.  The media will peddle paranoia and cheer this resistance to reform. – Reform will take a herculean and persistent effort.” — Rajan Laad: The time has come to reform the FBI – American Thinker – “The FBI is America’s foremost law enforcement agency that protects citizens from criminals and terrorists.  In a democracy, the FBI is obliged to operate while guarding and respecting the rights of citizens.- It has to be remembered that liberty and security are not mutually exclusive.”

better than thou — “Virtue signaling is generally a “luxury belief” that holds no cost” … “The climate activist club is also filled with grifters” … “The climate scare is also an important piece of artillery in the war on capitalism” — Climate Week Is Over, But The Warming Cranks Are Still Out There – Issues & Insights — “Human history has been filled with crackpots, cheats, liars, attention seekers, and fearmongers. Today these sorts have coalesced around the global warming narrative. They’ll do anything, they’ll say anything. If the rest of us don’t resist, they’ll take us back a couple of centuries.”

a distinct whiff of fascism in the air

yes, it’s special – “Hong Kong and Singapore; India and Pakistan; Egypt and South Africa; Australia and New Zealand; Canada and the United States. – These far-flung countries are all the powerhouses of their regions of the world, both politically and economically. – They have histories of law, order, and general liberty that, though certainly troubled and far from perfect, tower above those of their neighbors. – Finally: They were all once major colonies of the British Empire.” — Christopher Bedford: The British Empire Was A Force For Western Civilization (And That’s Why They Hate Her)

uncomfortable – “maybe the Democrat party realizes that its policy “successes” have caused so much pain for the American people that the only path to continued power consists of cynically demonizing half the country as “extremists,” “insurrectionists,” and “terrorists” who must be defeated at any cost.” — J.B. Shurk: MAGA’s Real Crime? Spotlighting Government Failure – American Thinker — “perhaps MAGA Americans are denounced as “extremists” precisely because they think for themselves and demand real change from their government.  Perhaps they are seen as a “threat” because they refuse to become poorer and less secure in the world just so globalists can profit at Americans’ expense.  Perhaps they are reviled as “insurrectionists” because so much of the American government has forgotten what the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution actually mean.  Perhaps those who want to “make America great” have become the enemy because so many in Washington, D.C. want to make America and Americans feel small.  Maybe Democrats have nothing else to run on in this midterm election except hate, division, and threats.”

a blind eye – “The Justice Department doesn’t hesitate to publicize the names of those it accuses of wrongdoing. At least when those accused do not work for Justice.” —  Eric Felten: DOJ Internal Misconduct Shrouded in Veil of Secrecy | RealClearPolitics — “The IG’s recommendation notwithstanding, the Justice Department continues to shroud wrongdoing by its own in a system of secrecy. It is a policy that does little to restore confidence in a department viewed by many Americans with suspicion.”

why is this so? – “Part of the thrill of being transgender is the attention one receives and craves so badly. Another benefit is the ability to outrage normal people. Critics of the transgender movement are accused of being intolerant.” — John Dietrich: Will the Democrats’ Stance On Education Be Their Undoing? – American Thinker — “If you want to be accepted, if you want to remain employed, if you want to receive your pension, it is advisable to remain silent when this subject comes up.”

the nature of the lie – “Anti-liberty leftists love to weaponize certain words and then use them to excess.” — D. Parker: Cruelty? Who Is More Cruel than the Left? – American Thinker — “The lesson we’ve learned from all of this is that anti-liberty leftists are fine with an illegal invasion.  They just don’t want people moving in where they live.  They can’t say this out loud, so they project it on the pro-freedom right.  And when they talk about using people as a political weapon, rejecting humanity, Sadistic Immigration Stunts, and cruelty, they are referring to themselves. They just can’t be honest about it.”

the dark night? – “as we look around us, and as we review the data, the dark night of global warming that is always descending has never landed.” — How Global Warming Is A Lot Like ‘Get Trump’ – Issues & Insights — (Donate) — “There is a distinct whiff of fascism in the air. But it’s the Democrats who released the stench with their efforts to crush dissent and establish single-party rule over constitutional governing.”

lawfare big time

obstruction – “The DOJ-NSD is claiming the Intelligence Community (IC) is the real authority here, not the President of the United States.  It is a rather remarkable position to take.” … “President Trump declassified the documents showing the corrupt DOJ and FBI targeting operation of him.   The corrupt DOJ and FBI went and took back the evidence against them in the Mar-a-Lago raid and now says no one should be allowed to see it.” — sundance: DOJ-NSD Frantic That Special Master Might Review IC Defined Classified Documents, Even if Trump Declassified, Because Sources and Methods – The Last Refuge

power play – “we have seen with President Biden severe cognitive deficits present no obstacle to Democrats putting people into positions of power. After all, in their view it is only the power behind the throne that matters. Their elected officials are only front men and women.” … “Lots of people are waking up to the fact that Democrats have been scamming them for generations and they are responding appropriately. – Expect the level of desperation to be turned up to 11, because Democrats can’t win solely with the votes of white-wine whiney women.” — David Strom: When Democrats do it…. – HotAir

bullies – “The phone confiscation, he said, has given him the opportunity to tell people that without election integrity, “We lose our country.” — Eva Fu via The Epoch Times: “I Got Bad News For You”: Mike Lindell Speaks Out After FBI Seizes Phone | ZeroHedge

turmoil – “The Court is coming off one of the most historic and impactful terms in its history. Yet, the coming docket is already packed with new blockbuster cases” — Turley Speaks to the 2022 Ohio Judicial Conference – JONATHAN TURLEY

The Bible and rational paranoia

at the core – “the belief – that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.” — Josh Hawley: The Left’s War On History Is Really A War On The God Of The Bible

on the table – assault on the first – “It marked another move in what appears to be a highly politicized investigation targeting the political enemies of Joe Biden for nothing more than wrong-speak. … it is chilling to think that the DOJ could base an investigation on something that is clearly under the bounds of free speech … the DOJ is demanding his communications, many of which are privileged, with a wink and a nod promise to sort through everything. That’s banana republic stuff.” — Bonchie: DOJ Subpoenas Targeting Trump Associates Contain Disturbing Demands – RedState — “there is no accountability or transparency being demanded in the face of all this. Instead, the American press, with few exceptions, is spending its time either ignoring these overreaches or outright supporting them. That’s terrifying … These precedents being set are going to be abused by left-wing officials long into the future.”

who’s your hero? – “Democrats’ defense of John Fetterman is simply obscene” — Jeff Goldstein: John Fetterman and the decay of a redundant Senate

a list of concerns – “What can possibly be going through the minds of Republican congressmen and senators that they are so out of touch with the concerns and fulminating anger of ordinary Americans?” — M.B. Mathews: Cowardly congressional Republicans are focusing on the wrong issues – American Thinker

not your government – “The filing contains this bombshell and seven other significant details about the Democrat-led plot to use U.S. intelligence agencies to deny Americans the results of their choice for president in 2016.” — Margot Cleveland: FBI Paid For Russian Disinfo To Frame Trump—And 7 More Details

lost cause, sunk capital, cut the losses – “I don’t see how the FBI, in anything like its present form, can be salvaged. The bureau has been so thoroughly politicized, so corruptly placed at the disposal of one of our political parties, that it has lost the confidence of most Americans who pay attention.” — John Hinderaker: Biden’s Personal Gestapo | Power Line

taking note – “Lucas provides scores of examples of fraud that actually affected the outcome of elections, thus disproving the Democrat-Media mantra that fraud in American elections, and especially the 2020 election, is almost nonexistent.” — Richard Kirk: Voter Fraud: The Bottom Line – American Thinker

political lawfare by lawmakers – “The target is not so much Trump as the idea that electoral votes could be legally contested on the joint session of Congress.  Obviously, the DoJ violates core freedom of speech.  It also ignores the clear letter and spirit of the law regarding the joint session for Presidential elections.” — Leo Goldstein: Who was Behind the January 6 Events? – American Thinker — “The hypothesis that the Democrat party and its allies are behind storming the Capitol, violent disruption of the joint session, and its improper resumption and conclusion deserves more consideration.”

rational paranoia – “It’s as plain as a pikestaff that there will be two goals behind arresting Trump.  The first and most obvious is to end Trump’s ability to run for president (although there’s nothing in the Constitution to stop him from doing so, even if — God forbid — he’s in prison).  The second goal is to have Trump-supporters commit even the slightest bit of violence (tearing down a sign would be enough) to justify stopping the midterm elections and, perhaps, declaring martial law.” — Andrea Widburg: Democrats aren’t just persecuting Republicans; they’re baiting them – American Thinker — “If Democrats really go down that road, it will be awfully hard to pull back, and so many lives will end up destroyed.”

telltale media behavior – “Today, it is not paranoid to comprehend that Biden’s administration, with the midterm elections less than two months away, seeks to criminalize the political speech of Republican Party officials and voters, with the added twist of the wheel: criminalizing Citizen Trump’s continuation in politics.” — David Zukerman: New York Times: It’s not worth printing if it doesn’t insult Trump – American Thinker

selection of targets – “What we’re seeing here is a major shift away from January 6.  To the extent that people did trespass and “parade” in the Capitol (although there’s reason to believe that many were entrapped into entering the property), the DOJ and FBI had at least some colorable criminal cases.  That the DOJ didn’t feel compelled to make the same cases against the BLM and Antifa activists who attacked federal property across America in 2020 was something we were all supposed to ignore.” — Andrea Widburg: The FBI hunted down Mike Lindell and seized his phone – American Thinker — “It’s apparent that the FBI is attempting to indict Lindell as an accomplice.  What’s even more apparent is that the Biden administration, as Tucker Carlson already pointed out, isn’t just going after trespassers and “paraders” on federal property.  It seeks, instead, to imprison, intimidate, bankrupt, and silence anyone who looks at the doddering, corrupt wreck in the White House and his pathetic basement campaign, and then questions whether he really won.”

it’s what they do – “even after Democrats spent months describing fiery riots perpetrated by their own ideologues as “mostly peaceful protests,” they were more than willing — as Johnson did — to smear these parents for daring to speak out against local tyrants.” — Sophia Corso: Hank Johnson: Parents ‘Descended’ On School Boards ‘Like Jan. 6’ — “Johnson’s baseless accusations and comparison of concerned parents to rioters are false and damaging, and show just how exhaustively Democrats will use “Jan. 6” smears as a political cudgel. All that his comments achieve is misconstruing what is actually happening at school board meetings and furthering the divide in our nation.”

bigotry on parade – “This is a guy who, when he runs his scripted TV commercials, says that he wants to appeal to Trump voters, he wants to appeal to the entire state of Ohio, and yet when he’s unscripted, he’s saying that we need to confront and kill the entire movement,” Ryan’s Republican opponent J.D. Vance told Sean Hannity. … “On Wednesday, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) followed Tim Ryan’s rhetoric when she issued a “call to arms” on the Senate floor while debating a national abortion ban.” — Paul Bois: Tim Ryan Claims ‘Kill’ MAGA Movement Comment Was About Jan 6

a list of deceit – “Democrats/leftists propagate the most horrendous lies about abortion with seemingly no accountability.  The reason they get away with their lies is because for too long, too many people have said nothing — as Edmund Burke is reputed to have said, “evil flourishes when good people say and do nothing.” — Dr. Lyn Olsen: Dispelling the Pre-Election Abortion Lies – American Thinker

Humor is critical to sanity – “First, though, I must give you a glimpse of what’s happened to the long-ago concept of lighthearted political comedy on the left.” — Andrea Widburg: As mainstream comedy fails, the Babylon Bee reminds us of humor’s power – American Thinker — “If WWII is anything to go by, the side with the best humor wins.  And with the Babylon Bee on our side in the culture war currently being waged in the United States, we can’t lose.”

biblical – “the whole “green” religion has never remotely attempted to answer two fundamental questions: – (1) Even if mankind were changing the global climate, why is that a bad thing? – (2) If the social and economic costs of ending hydrocarbon energy outweigh the benefits, then why should we do so?” — J.B. Shurk: In the Climate Change Church, the Woke Play Pope – American Thinker — “It’s a false religion with false gods.  Should the scales finally fall from humanity’s eyes, then the “green” doomsayers ampending collapse?ong us will look foolish and wicked with their signs still painted, “The End Is Nigh.”

pending collapse? – “I think a global economic meltdown is possible as a result of “green” fantasies. I don’t mean just a recession or garden-variety depression, I mean a collapse in which homes can’t be heated, lights don’t go on, factories shutter, supply lines break down, agriculture is devastated resulting in acute food shortages, a generation’s accumulated wealth vanishes, civilization begins to break down, and hundreds of millions of people–maybe more–may die. “Green” energy doesn’t mean unicorns and fairies frolicking in meadows. It means grim, fatal dystopia.” — John Hinderaker: “Green” Energy Will Bankrupt Us | Power Line

Can this be America?

wither art thou? – “The United States has now reached the point where the sequence of outrageous and unconstitutional measures that have occurred in the last six years would have been inconceivable six years ago.” — Conrad Black: Can This Be Happening In America? | ZeroHedge — “Six years ago, no one could have imagined that these outrages would have occurred, much less that they would be accepted by a bedraggled, degraded, demoralized America, its federal government in the hands of lawless and authoritarian myth-makers, applauded by the complicit national political media. Can this be America?”

worse than you think – “It is true that government must never interfere in the functioning of a free market.  But when certain parties have a total monopoly over the market owing to the backing of a political party, the government has to intervene and level the playing field.” — Rajan Laad: Big Tech takes on Truth Social – American Thinker

more … – “In January last year, the major corporate tech giants colluded to bring Parler offline, complaining their competitor refused to incorporate the same censorship practices as allies of the incumbent regime” — Tristan Justice: Google Nukes Truth Social From App Store After NYT Hit Piece

ad hominem, the refuge of scoundrels – “The idea is to keep up a steady barrage of negative articles so that the voters will simply think negative thoughts when they hear the words “Trump,” “Republicans,” or “conservatives” — Richard McDonough: Media smears on Trump and his supporters starting to get juvenile – American Thinker

“some examples of misinformation used to infect the U.S. with a leftist agenda” — Jack Hellner: Why would we trust the media, ‘experts,’ bureaucrats, and other Democrats when they so willingly spread misinformation? – American Thinker

MAL – “The American people at times have placed hope in the leadership of particular individuals whom they perceived, rightly or wrongly, to be outstanding, without forsaking the processes of free election and ordered liberty.  Jonah’s fellow Trump-haters in the misnamed Democrat party have forsaken those processes (an attempt at regime change in the truest sense) and placed a national crisis on the horizon.” — Peter Nichols: What Jonah Goldberg gets wrong on the Mar-a-Lago raid – American Thinker

“So, with those guidelines in mind, I’ll quote from Margot’s article, which in turn quotes from original sources: Redacted Mar-A-Lago Affidavit Confirms Biden’s DOJ Fished For A Crime To Pin On Trump” — Mark Wauck: More Light On The MAL Raid’s Legal Rationale

cave politics – “On Tuesday, Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a directive to “remind” everyone working at the Justice Department they are not to communicate with members of Congress.” —  Matt Margolis: Garland Doubles Down on Cover-up of FBI Misconduct in Mar-a-Lago Raid – PJ Media

coming to Nevada? – “There’s a lot to be said about the “fairness” of this sort of rigging, which is also how San Francisco ended up with now-recalled Chesa Boudin as district attorney.  If one subset of voters gets two votes, why don’t all of them?” — Monica Showalter: Why the left shouldn’t be crowing so loudly about that Sarah Palin defeat – American Thinker

wallet vote – “It should not surprise us to learn in coming months that, rather than Mr. Trump losing support, the New York Post has suffered a significant loss in circulation” — David Zukerman: Et tu, Rupert Murdoch? – American Thinker

can’t be, can it? – “There is no excuse for advanced economies to experience a shortage of electricity, or of energy generally” — John Hinderaker: The West’s Energy Disaster Worsens | Power Line — “Eventually Western countries, including the U.S., will come to our senses, but the harm done in the meantime will be incalculable”

pattern of deceit – “climate change pushers are infecting the U.S. with a pandemic of the indoctrinated” — Jack Hellner: The misinformation and lies that are peddled to the public on climate change dwarf the misinformation on COVID – American Thinker — “Anyone who believes that politicians and bureaucrats who can’t control budgets, crime, borders, a virus, can’t keep their promises on Obamacare, and can’t get kids to read or do math at grade level can control temperatures, sea levels, and storm activity forever if we just destroy our economy needs to take a cognitive test.”

the basic ideological definitions of governmental control to explain the political spectrum

overreach consequences – “Raiding Donald Trump’s private residence without compelling justification, the FBI violated Gertrude Stein’s rule about knowing how far to go when going too far.” —  Roger Kimball: The Feds Go Too Far › American Greatness — “the FBI violated Gertrude Stein’s golden rule about knowing how far to go when going too far. They will, I predict, pay the price, and the country will be a freer, safer, less intimidated place.”

armed forces inventory – “We have what the founders feared most: a “standing” or permanent army on American soil. … there are a growing number of exceptions to which Posse Comitatus does not apply. These exceptions serve to further acclimate the nation to the sight and sounds of military personnel on American soil and the imposition of martial law. … The menace of a national police force—a.k.a. a standing army—vested with the power to completely disregard the Constitution, cannot be overstated, nor can its danger be ignored.” — John & Nisha Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute: Weaponizing The Bureaucracy: Who Will Protect Us From The Government’s Standing Army? | ZeroHedge — “All of these assaults on the constitutional framework of the nation have been sold to the public as necessary for national security.”

anything for everything – “No one outside the ruling class would want any part of the lefts socialist national agenda, so they must lie to have any success. … evil has always had to use deception to disguise its true nature” — D. Parker: The Evil of the Anti-Liberty Left – American Thinker — “hey are not only perpetrating these horrendous policies, but outright lying so people support them without knowing what they are.  If that isn’t evil, then what is?”

it’s who they are – “This mass delusion of the left, that the former guy is “an existential threat to democracy” and a “moral emergency,” as Harris described it on British podcast “Triggernometery” last week, has metastasized under a president afflicted with a bad case of Trump derangement syndrome.” … “The antipathy to Trump among the elites is more about visceral class revulsion and a fear of contagion than his morality or politics.” … “The propaganda media of the left amplifies and twists this attitude in hateful ways.” — Miranda Devine: The left’s mask slips on brazen Trump bias — “History tells us where dehumanization always ends.”

hope for sanity – “Personal injury lawyers are either revered or reviled. Sometime purveyors of junk science, they often prey on a vulnerable and scientifically averse judiciary. But things are a’changin- at least for asbestos. And that signals bad news for the talc plaintiffs.” —  Barbara Pfeffer Billauer: Asbestos Causes Cancer? Only if You Can Prove It – and That’s Getting Harder | American Council on Science and Health

presumption is no substitute for reality – “From a societal view, we are beginning to “do right” by our veterans. From a scientific point of view, the association of these adverse health effects solely with burn pits and no other environmental factors is a bit tenuous. By not fully investigating the more specific exposures of our veterans, we are losing an important opportunity – to better understand and target what in the chemical mix of what we term PM2.5, may be a causal factor.” — Chuck Dinerstein: Let’s Talk About … Burn Pits | American Council on Science and Health

The assault is on many fronts

secrecy needs just cause, too – “Ordering the unsealing of the Mar-a-Lago search warrant affidavit would be wrong as a matter of law. But as a matter of lessons learned, Americans can infer that the unprecedented search of former President Donald Trump’s home rested on circular reporting, material omissions, misleading assertions, informants of unproven reliability, and an investigation undertaken by partisan agents.” — Margot Cleveland: It’s A Safe Bet The FBI Followed Its FISA Court M.O. At Mar-A-Lago — “Of course, without seeing the search warrant affidavit, all the public can do is speculate, but given the similarities between the Russia-collusion hoax and this latest get-Trump hoax, an assumption that the FBI Mar-a-Lago affidavit includes problems of equal gravity to the four Carter Page FISA applications seems eminently reasonable. Thus, a victory later today by the DOJ in keeping the affidavit sealed might be a win for the government, but it won’t play like one in Peoria.”

intimidate and hold impotent – “The aggressive leftist purge of conservative or just brave attorneys is destroying one of America’s greatest institutions: Every person’s right to have an attorney at his side.” — Andrea Widburg: The left is making it impossible for Trump to find a lawyer – American Thinker — “Leftists want to destroy this important right. When they’re done, we will all be at the mercy of a government that can abandon due process entirely because hapless defendants will be helpless to assert it. The same government can also do anything it damn well pleases because no lawyers will be there to challenge its illegalities and excesses.”

hubris – “This pre-emptive attempt to chill speech has been reported, though it did not receive much national attention, with the church asserting it viewed the warning as an act of intimidation.” — Ilana Cutler: Read Letter From NY Attorney General Letitia James Threatening Church Hosting Trump-Friendly Event

process? oversight? – “Technically there is a mechanism for executive branch conflict resolution that involves actual transparency, not the political talking points of the illusion of transparency.  However, when the Fourth Branch of Government was created, the conflict resolution measure that provides oversight and escape from accusations of unequal application of law was dispatched.  It was dispatched because, well, the unequal application of the law was the intent. … On March 20, 2017, we saw for the first time how the newly weaponized DOJ and FBI had intentionally and purposefully begun to stop that notification process as part of their intentional effort to politically weaponize the justice dept” — Sundance: Trump’s Espionage? Washington DC and the Pundits Won’t Talk About This, But I will – The Last Refuge — “The absence of congressional notification is evidencing how the targeting by Main Justice is political.”

count how many 4th and 5th amendment rights are sidestepped in this one – “But the true target was this private stash, which Justice Department officials feared Donald Trump might weaponize.” — William M. Arkin: FBI Sought Documents Trump Hoarded for Years, Including about Russiagate

Answer: when the regime is completely out of ideas and can’t face the fact that the opposition has ideas, good ideas, actual ideas that might work.”

Prognosticating – “The ongoing persecution of Trump is likely to spectacularly backfire on the Left. It is unlikely that a raid will cow the man who has weathered many scandals and accusations.” — tippinsights Editorial Board: FBI Raid On Trump Will Make Him A Martyr

Tea Leaves – “After news of the raid broke and leaks about its purpose began circulating yesterday evening, speculation about an attempt to disqualify Trump started circulating on social media.” — Ed Morrissey: Too good to check: Is the DoJ trying to disqualify Trump for 2024? – HotAir

good for the goose good for the gander? – “Although the cost of busing an illegal is likely much less than the cost to Texas of caring for the migrant and protecting the community from those who commit additional crimes, a non-profit should be set up to raise and provide funds for additional buses not only to D.C. and New York, but to any place that has declared itself a “sanctuary” jurisdiction.” — Michael Nadler: A simple plan: Free Bus Ride to Sanctuary – American Thinker

what’s that definition of insanity? – “it should be said that by passing massive subsidies for wind and solar power, the U.S. has decided to emulate Germany’s energiewende (“energy revolution”) policy that it adopted 20 years ago. It has been a total bust. … it is worth noting an early indication of how this will all end from inside our own borders, specifically California, which was an early adopter of the German model.” — Steven Hayward: In Re: The Climate Bill (Part 1) | Power Line

Another catalog – “In the era of peak woke we are supposed to accept any radical departure from long-held custom and tradition as the new normal … Or were they simply transitory and necessary in the age of the dreaded Trump—as one-time leftist means to achieve noble ends, and thus should never be institutionalized much less boomeranged?” — Victor Davis Hanson: Are the New Progressive Rules Reciprocal? › American Greatness

“Calling a new slush fund to push the green agenda to destroy the fossil fuel industry the “Inflation Reduction Act” is as dishonest as calling Obamacare the “Affordable Care Act.”  Any journalist who repeats or implies that this act has anything to do with reducing inflation and believes that it will reduce the deficit either doesn’t have the ability to think and analyze or doesn’t care about the truth” … “Which government spending program has ever reduced the deficit?” — Jack Hellner: Another Day, another campaign ad promoting radical leftist policies disguised as a news article – American Thinker == “How sad that people who call themselves “progressives” are willing to destroy America by moving it backward toward economic collapse”

Truth leaks as some stand tall – “What the FBI needs to rehabilitate itself is a cavalcade of whistleblowers exposing the rot within the bureau … The last two months seem to suggest a potential change in attitude, with FBI whistleblowers willing to work with outsiders committed to reform” — Margot Cleveland: All FBI Agents Must Blow Whistles Or They’re Complicit In Hackery

The art of the smear spread thick and vile

intimidation and harassment — “The 65 Project will spend millions this year trying to expose and disbar more than 100 lawyers who worked on Trump’s election lawsuits … The goal is to prevent conservative attorneys from challenging election results in the future” … “It’s an insidious attack on democracy when you attack the lawyers who were trying to ensure that elections are free and fair.” —  Victoria Marshall, More Than 100 Trump-Affiliated Lawyers Targeted By Dark Money Group

history lesson — “An example from Mexican history demonstrates that concerned parents can overcome a Marxist school indoctrination program.  This one grew out of the 1910-1920 Mexican Revolution. The resulting socialist government that followed had closed all Catholic schools and taken over all public education” … “To date, the sexual grooming process in America has not quite reached the level of insanity Father Parsons witnessed in 1935 Mexico — at least not yet.  But unless American parents and legislators get more deeply involved in protecting our children from this “modern” sexual depravity, it could end up as extreme here as in 1930s Mexico.  Radical leftists should remember this Mexican history when pushing their degeneracy against parent’s wishes” —  James Stansbury, Revolution and the Minds of Children – American Thinker

TDS is real and dangerous – “I can tell you that Olsen is unfailingly an absurdly decent and uncommonly pleasant person.

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus

“Over the past thirty-years, a plurality of ill-educated and malleable citizens have allowed the self-serving, decadent and nescient ruling class, in alliance with the radical left, to establish near-permanent despotism in the United States.  They have deliberately and inexorably widened the gulf between the people and the government and effectively split the nation into two de facto countries that are at ideological and societal loggerheads.” —  Steve McCann, The United States Has Become Two Countries Within a Nation – American Thinker

“KevinMD contributors, virtually without exception, have asserted the solution to events like the horrific tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, is “gun control.” Allow me to present an alternative viewpoint in the interest of diversity of opinion.” … “While new restrictions on gun ownership are not unreasonable, if we want to keep Americans safe, let’s stop letting violent criminals like Darryl Brooks, Eugene Clark, Steven Mendez, and Ricardo Hernandez back on our streets. And these are not isolated cases” —  Scott Abramson, Gun control vs. violent criminal control

“The advanced state of ad hominem political attacks in the United States has spread to the Supreme Court’s own justices – at least from the outnumbered liberals there.” “Now is the time to stop this vitriol before it’s too late, before it impacts the way the Justices conduct business.  It’s long past time to stop it in the Senate and the House and at the White House.” —  Marc Hecht, The losers throw spitballs, even on the Supreme Court – American Thinker

“the Court has not appointed itself the decision-maker, Justice Kagan. It has told Congress that it must be the decision maker, which is what the Constitution says.  Justice Kagan is far from stupid. How does one get such an obvious and simple point so wrong?” —  Thomas Lifson, Justice Kagan’s sophomoric misunderstanding of West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency – American Thinker

“If the precedent doesn’t conform to the Constitution, it is then illegal and should be overturned, which a justice will vote to do if he, again, references the Constitution.” … “what hasn’t been said: In complaining they were deceived by Gorsuch and Kavanaugh,  Manchin and Collins are in glass houses with millimeter-thick walls. — For they are violating their oaths.” —  , Roe Woe: Manchin and Collins Violate Their Oaths by Stressing Un-American Stare Decisis – American Thinker

“The examples are endless.  The media will destroy anyone whom they don’t want in power while hiding the truth about people like the Clintons and the Bidens.  All they care about is power for leftists and pushing their agenda to destroy America.  They should be embarrassed.” —  Jack Hellner, Here are headlines and editorials in the dishonest WaPo a day after Secret Service agents effectively called Jan. 6 witness a liar – American Thinker

Gohmert; Attorney Suggests “Entrapment” | ZeroHedge

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

“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

Joondeph, M.D.. It’s the Mental Health System, Stupid

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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

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.

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.

“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

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”
