Good election for ‘recreational’ drugs

Americans Won, Pollsters Lost. Daniel Greenfield – “The media’s lies shatter against the courage of a nation.”

Every Democrat disaster, like the disasters in the Soviet Union, began with an ideology putting its utopian theories over the blunt realities of human nature. And the polls created a hall of mirrors, an echo chamber, in which everything that the Democrat elites believed was true.

The Polls Lied, the Election Theft Begins Now. Ibid – “The endgame was always going to come down to a wave of ballots that would appear out of nowhere in just the right number.” … “The ultimate question on the ballot was whether the American people would allow themselves to be lied to.”

Election night reveals three disturbing facts. Dex Bahr – “Election night revealed a few disturbing items that should trouble freedom-loving Americans. … First that the race is even this tight speaks to disturbing number of Americans who are woefully uninformed. Second, Fox News has gone over to the dark side, or, rather, the left. And third, the level of coordination to make this race close is stunning.”

The barbarians are at the gate.

A Sensible and Compassionate Anti-COVID Strategy. Jay Bhattacharya – “we need to distinguish COVID cases from COVID infections. A lot of fear and confusion has resulted from failing to understand the difference.”

Dear John Piper: No, Arrogance Is Not As Deadly As Murder. Robert Gagnon – “Piper says he will oppose both ‘death by arrogance’ and ‘death by abortion.’ What he fails to distinguish, however, is that one is a metaphor, and one is literal.” Piper’s moral preening is an arrogance that stimulated dissonance in many who had respected his intellectual prowess. “Apparently, Piper is only a purist on moral perfection about Trump and no other American leader.” … “It is time for evangelical Never Trumpers to wake up. The barbarians are at the gate.”

Donald Trump, Counterrevolutionary. Victor Davis Hanson – “Against all the money and clout of America’s revolutionary forces, the counterrevolutionary Trump had only one asset, the proverbial people.” … “Nothing in history is more dangerous than the underemployed wannabe intellectual or college graduate, whose cultivated sense of superiority is not matched by his income or standard of living, but who blames “them” for his own self-inflicted miseries and unappreciated genius.” … “Against all that money and clout, the counterrevolutionary Trump had only one asset, the proverbial people.”

How Trump Survives a Coup. Edward N. Luttwak – “everything has changed. Each one of the crash-barriers and backstops of the American political system has been undone. … yes, the American political system too does have a breaking point—and yes, the armed forces could be left as its residual legatee.”

After Texas car stunt, Biden crybabies call in the FBI. Monica Showalter – “Harm’s way? Maybe if their driver didn’t attempt to cross a lane into an unwilling car’s path.” … “Crybabies, anti-cop hypocrites, and calculating political opportunists for sure. But there’s one other thing worth noting: Notice that the Biden team’s first response to any political challenge is to … call the federal police.”

Antifa gearing up for false flag violence disguised as Trump-supporters. Thomas Lifson – “A source that has always been reliable was able to photograph an Antifa flyer:” … “What makes all of this particularly chilling is that progressives already are absurdly claiming that the threat of violence comes from our side.” … “Other media players, such Vox and the New York Times, warn of both sides, a disguise of balance but ridiculously unrealistic”

Seeing Past The Narratives – Two Election Points to Remember… sundance – “There is a great deal of manipulation and falsehood in media presentation of the 2020 election. These lies and false constructs generate a great deal of anxiety.”

‘Truth’ Over Facts. The Z Man – “the journalist showed up with a prepared narrative and then went around looking for people, events, and images to fill in the details. The facts were mere ornaments to decorate the story, not the point of the story.” … “Now that the election is upon us, the narratives are flying fast and furious.” … “While it is certainly fun to mock this stuff, the salient point here is that the people in charge believe the narratives they create.” … “Can a society carry on when it is ruled by giant toddlers obsessed with fantasy stories, rather than adults doing the hard work of governing a people?”

Trump establishes 1776 Commission. Paul Mirengoff – “President Trump signed an “Executive Order Establishing the President’s Advisory 1776 Commission.” The order marks an important step in Trump’s efforts to foster patriotic education.” … “President Trump’s order doesn’t entail imposing his vision of patriotic education on the nation. Instead, he calls on local communities to reassert control over the curriculum. Isn’t it great to have a president who views America with pride, who is willing, unabashedly, to defend our founding, and who will contest the views of radicals seeking to enlist an all-too-complicit education establishment in tearing America down?”

Here’s Why Judge Sullivan Must Disqualify Himself From Michael Flynn’s Case. Leslie McAdoo Gordon – “Sullivan’s apparent animus toward Flynn’s attorney and his fixation on Flynn being punished demonstrate bias in this case — sufficient to require his disqualification.”

Only Science-Deniers Believe In A National Mask Mandate. Jay W. Richards, Douglas Axe and William Briggs – “There’s little scientific evidence that the various face coverings we call ‘masks’ do much, if anything, to stop the spread of COVID-19.” … “Scientists have long tested the value of masks for the general public. The results are not, on the whole, in favor of masks for general use because there are just too many trade-offs and exceptions.”

Anti-Science? Don Boudreaux – “Here’s a letter to a young woman who accuses me (and other lockdown opponents) of being “anti-science” … “I cannot agree with, as you approvingly describe it, “his demand that science determine the policy.”
