Attack! Attack! Attack! (even with blanks)

Dossier wielded by Democrats shows only Clinton campaign collusion with Russians By Rowan Scarborough – “For over a year, the Hillary Clinton campaign, other Democrats and liberal pundits have pummeled President Trump and his men with one main weapon: a dossier.”

Since the dossier’s first memo hit town in June 2016, none of its core collusion charges has been proved. There has been no confirmation by any public pronouncement or a leak from Congress’ two intelligence committees or from special counsel Robert Mueller.

That did not stop the Clinton campaign from attacking Mr. Trump. Neither has it stopped congressional Democrats, especially members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, from reading the dossier’s sensational charges into the Congressional Record and on the network news. Based on the dossier, they publicly accused people of felonies while knowing the document remained unverified.
…
A source knowledgeable about the House intelligence committee probe told The Times that none of Mr. Steele’s collusion scenarios has been confirmed after months of interviewing witnesses.

Yet Democrats and the left-wing press have continued to vouch for the dossier, some to this day.

Hillary’s very own Russian collusion connection By Wesley Pruden – “The Clinton can is as full of worms as her harshest critics ever imagined it was, and now the worms are turning.”

Senate Democrats warned against double standard for female judicial nominees By Alex Swoyer – “The week will begin with a vote on a pick to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, proceed to the three women and finish with a vote on Stephanos Bibas, another appeals court nominee.” It’s not only gender, it’s religion being used to obstruct confirmation of judicial nominees.

Mr. McConnell had to set up votes to head off filibusters on each of the nominees after Democrats insisted on forcing them to go through all the procedural hurdles.

“This pointless obstruction is designed simply to waste time, not change an outcome — and it won’t,” Mr. McConnell said.
…
Democrats said Justice Eid is too conservative … One Democrat also tried to tie Ms. Barrett to what he called a “hate group,” … “Mitch McConnell’s actions today to jam through four controversial appellate court nominees is dangerous … “well outside of the mainstream” … Mr. Grassley’s suggestion that Democrats are using a double standard to deny women confirmation is misleading … the rush to confirm the judges … trying to accomplish through stacking the courts with extreme nominees
…
Mr. McConnell said the new judges marked a change in philosophy from the Obama era, when he said the president’s goal for judicial nominees was “the ability to empathize with certain groups over others.”

The squealing is quite something, but nothing new and, as usual, completely personal rather than substantive or reality based. The need for a judiciary that sticks to the law rather than to constructed identity idioms is blatant and urgent.

Benghazi Liar Schiff Now Lies about Uranium One by Daniel John Sobieski – “Rep. Schiff had no problem with intel leaks to the New York Times, but an intelligence committee chairman giving the President a heads-up that his transition team was in fact caught up in surveillance by his own government is out of bounds?” This is an example of why the swamp is so dire a threat.

that is what Schiff is doing, whistling past his party’s political graveyard and ignoring evidence of crimes that, yes, make Watergate look like a third-rate burglary and the treason of the Rosenbergs look like a misdemeanor,
…
Schiff, as we know, is no stranger to partisan efforts to distract and is a veteran of using lies, false charges, and obfuscation to distract the American people from the crimes and corruption of Team Obama and Team Clinton. He shamelessly defended the incompetence and criminal negligence of Obama and Clinton in Benghazi

The Democrats’ Pathology by Henry Oliner – “It’s a bit difficult for Democrats to claim credibility on judging Trump’s psychological fitness while Kathy Griffin is hoisting a bloody severed head.”

Failing to defeat Trump in the election, the Democrats have worked endlessly to deflect their humiliation with denials, demonization, conspiracies, and pathological diagnosis. These are not new political tactics. Although they are amplified more, they remain pathetic and ineffective.
…
Hofstadter’s anti-intellectualism has echoed ever since to explain any election the left loses. For a country that is anti-intellectual, we seem to lead the world in Nobel prizes in all fields of science and the arts. Facebook, Amazon, Google, Apple, IBM, Tesla and thousands of high-tech startups that have dramatically changed the way we work and live have solid American roots. No country can match us in startups.

Nor does the intellectual left explain their wide support of the most deadly and nefarious political movements from Mao to Chavez. The left confuses intellectualism with credentialism.
…
Hofstadter and Franks attributed their party’s loss to a pathology of the voters. The rejection of their candidates and their ideas was not a rational response, but some kind of social or psychological malfunction.
…
Democrats are revulsed today from tools they created handed to their worst nightmare. Yet they propose more tools that are more dangerous to our liberty than the problems they address.
…
The violence carried out in the name of political correctness, the ’ends justify the means’ mentality using moral supremacy to justify immoral acts, and their gaslighting that faults those who reject their arrogance all raise questions of their psychological fitness.
…
Perhaps the Democrats suffer from severe denial. Anosognosia is not simply denial of a problem, but the genuine inability to recognize that a problem exists.

Efforts to identify strategic and communication failures have excluded the recognition of the rejection of their policies and their ideas. Criticizing those who reject you is not productive to making the changes required to win. It has become an obsession bordering on the pathological.

The Maduro regime has more global, socialist support than you think by Jazz Shaw – “The overthrow of what used to pass for democracy in Venezuela (such as it was) is now complete.”

Maduro isn’t in too much peril because both China and Russia have stated that they don’t intend to punish the dictator or participate in any actions against him. But it turns out that Venezuela’s ruler has more friends than just those two nations and some of them are in surprising places.
…
But the biggest shock, at least to me, is the support Maduro is receiving from the man who is predicted by many to possibly become the next Prime Minister of Great Britain if Theresa May falls from power over all of the Brexit unrest. That man is Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
…
Just how insane has our world become these days? And how deep are the roots of socialism and the globalist left around the world, allowing such attitudes to be so prevalent?

What’s happening in Venezuela right now is nothing short of a catastrophe. People are literally starving to death and being urged by their own government to hunt rabbits and feral cats and dogs to sustain themselves. The nation’s rich farmlands which once produced enough crops, poultry and beef to feed their entire continent now lie mostly empty thanks to the mismanagement and corruption of the socialist regime. Disease runs rampant as medical supplies are rationed out only to the ruling elites. People are terrified to speak openly against their government for fear of winding up in a dungeon.

These are the wages of socialism and it’s happened so many times over the course of history that it boggles the mind to think that people could still support it. And yet there is still a sizable mass of politically powerful groups around the globe who are willing to turn a blind eye to the suffering in Venezuela and cheer on the socialist cause.

America was supposed to serve as a beacon for freedom and prosperity. We remain the shining example of how a free people left to their own devices under basic rules of law can succeed and rise to become a global superpower in a few generations. But much of the world is still mired in the belief that socialism or communism is somehow more “fair” to the people. A great man once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. It appears that insanity is built into our genetic makeup around much of the globe.

What Is ‘Sacred’ to the Modern Left? by Trevor Thomas – “I think the most telling thing about General John Kelly’s press briefing last week was when he lamented the things no longer held “sacred” in our country today.”

Women, life, religion, marriage, family, hard work, the military, et al. are no longer widely held sacred in American culture because the values that demand such have largely been abandoned and attacked by the modern left. … Especially targeted are any values deemed “Christian.”
…
Entertained by the vulgar, informed by the ignorant, and educated from a godless Darwinian worldview, it should come as little surprise that tens of millions of Americans have little to no idea what is supposed to be sacred. …

What can those who kneel for a lie understand about truth and justice? How can we trust those who have waged a relentless war on the oldest and most sacred of all human institutions to grasp what is truly holy, healthy, and good for humanity? How can we trust the precious fourth estate to individuals who rarely hesitate to lie and distort in order to keep those of like mind in power? How can we expect those who peddle goods for votes in order to maintain power to serve sacrificially and keep the nation’s best interests at heart?
…
In addition to undoing the work of our founders – often “interpreting” the U.S. Constitution beyond recognition – for decades, the Democratic Party has worked hard to ensure that Americans be governed according to what modern liberals hold as “sacred.” Aided and abetted by the efforts of their like-minded allies in the media and academia, through the courts, Congress, and the White House, American Democrats have given legal legitimacy and political cover to the profane.

Google Should Practice What It Preaches On Net Neutrality by the Investor’s Business Daily – “Google has called for “the free flow of information” on the internet. How does that square with its YouTube subsidiary’s apparent bias against conservative content? Answer: It doesn’t.”

On Monday, PragerU filed suit against Google (GOOGL) for singling out dozens of PragerU videos for censorship only because they are conservative. YouTube did this, the suit claims, by labeling the videos as “inappropriate” for younger or sensitive viewers — making them unavailable to anyone in a “restricted” viewing setting — or by “demonetizing” them, which means PragerU doesn’t get ad revenue, even if the videos are widely viewed.
…
Yet all of these companies piously proclaim that they are dedicated to “net neutrality.” As Google put it on its own website, the internet must be a “level playing field” where people can “reach users on an equal footing.”

Deconstructing the Climate Demagoguery of the Wine Country Wildfire Tragedies by Jim Steele – “As sure as the winds will blow, climate demagogues hijack every human tragedy to amplify fears of rising CO2 concentrations. Despite that fact other critical factors were keys…” Find out about the factors that contributed to the California tragedy and how they fit into weather, climate, and seasonal atmospheric patterns.
