Normally, conspiracy theories are to be avoided for good reasons

Here are some good reasons — and, maybe, a few alternatives. With examples.

‘Christ’ Purged from Christmas and the Left Rejoices by Douglas MacKinnon – “Those who rightfully believe that Christ needs to be a part of Christmas and those rebelling against the politically correct tyranny looking to strip all spirituality from the holiday have lost.”

“According to the latest results from the Pew Research Center – and already being gleefully shouted from the rooftops of certain left-leaning media sites orchestrating the campaign against faith-based Christmas – while 90 percent of Americans still celebrate Christmas in one way or another, a majority find that the religious elements of Christmas are emphasized less and less and few of them care about that change.

If accurate, it not only tells us how truly lost we are as a nation, but underscores the dangers of absolute power, discrimination, and propaganda.

Five ways the media tries to convince us tax cuts are bad By Monica Showalter – “It’s the most fallacious collection of up-is-down arguments ever assembled. Pity when the press doesn’t have facts to go on” … “the Democrat dominance of rule-by-redistribution and subsidy is threatened. So here is a handy-dandy abbreviated guide to some of the rubbish being bandied about on the airwaves and print since they won’t stop:”

How Much Does the ‘New York Times’ Hate Donald Trump? By Michael Walsh – “At this point in the first Trump administration, the Left’s derangement at the election of an NOKD [“Not Our Kind, Dear”] outsider is already well into the red zone.”

“The Times, the Washington Post and other media enterprises have now devolved into fully partisan propaganda outlets. They’re out, proud and unafraid — and they’re coming after everyone who disagrees with them by smearing their opponents as “racist.” As I often point out on Twitter (@dkahanerules), for the Times the year is always 1933 (and Nazis are afoot) or 1963 (and America is racist). Both of its obsessions have now come to fruition in the person of Donald J. Trump and the deplorables who voted for him.

And they’re watching you, America:

Swamp Critters Target Ryan Zinke, But I’m Betting On The Seal By Frank Miele – “If anything speaks authoritatively on the partisan mess that is Washington, D.C., it is the vilification of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, seemingly the left’s favorite target after President Trump himself.”

Digging Ugly Holes – Robert Mueller Team Illegally Obtained Trump Transition Team Emails… by sundance – “There is widespread opinion that many of the officials enlisted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller are ethically challenged.”

“Almost every intellectually honest observer has come to the opinion the ‘Muh Russian Conspiracy/Collusion Narrative’ is a complete snipe hunt; a disingenuous nothing-burger.

Further, the entire “Russian narrative” now appears to have been created to cover the tracks of a joint FBI and DOJ operation where they were conducting wiretaps and surveillance on presidential candidate Donald Trump, to gain information to the benefit of candidate Hillary Clinton. In essence, the FBI and DOJ were weaponized.

Many of the same conspiring entities who are at risk from the true motive within the 2016 FBI Operation against Donald Trump (Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bill Priestap, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Glenn Simpson, etc.) were also put onto the Mueller investigation.

Trump transition lawyer: Mueller improperly obtained documents in Russia probe By John Roberts, Alex Pappas – “In a letter obtained by Fox News and sent to House and Senate committees on Saturday, the transition team’s attorney alleges “unlawful conduct” by the career staff at the General Services Administration (GSA) in handing over transition documents to the special counsel’s office.”

Trump Transition Team Lawyer: Mueller improperly grabbed tens of thousands of transition docs by William A. Jacobson – “Earlier today, Mike Allen at Axios reported a scoop that made clear Mueller was focused on the transition, Scoop: Mueller obtains “tens of thousands” of Trump transition emails:”

Point Shaver Strzok and the Untouchables by cornhead – “Based upon public reports, there are many dots to connect in this entire matter but little analysis of what could really be going on … The key to understanding this matter, in my opinion, is Peter Strzok, bitcoin and shaving points.

“the Clintons are not dummies. They had to have a second line of attack. That attack was based upon supercharged opposition research. How great would it be to use the full force of the federal government, the FBI and FISA warrants in order to spy on the Trump campaign in real time? Absolute gold.

The thing that is astounding to me as a lawyer is that a DOJ lawyer may well have presented a knowingly false document in order to dupe a federal judge and get a court order to spy on American citizens. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a serious matter. One does not lie to a federal judge in order to pervert the judicial process.

The surprising thing to me is that all of this spying on the Trump campaign by the FBI, CIA and NSC has resulted in essentially nothing.

Point shavers make their in-game play look like they are performing at their best. Even when shaving points, they can win the contests. But if a team is projected to win by 7 but the actual win is by 3, who is to say that a free throw or three-point shot was missed on purpose? The beauty of a point shaving scheme is that it only takes one or two players to pull it off.

To my knowledge, the full power and effectiveness of a federal grand jury was not used in the Hillary Clinton private server matter. To the extent search warrants and subpoenas were used, they were not used on a timely and aggressive basis. Point shaving.

My question is does new FBI Director Wray and Attorney General Sessions have the stones to properly and aggressively investigate this matter consistent with the rule of law. Who is today’s Eliot Ness? Are some people above the law because they have paid friends in government?

What happened in Wisconsin, cont’d by Scott Johnson – this is a different case driven by the same ethos. It is a corruption of politics by the ‘deep’ state.

“Let me repeat the conclusion to my post on the report last week. The wrongdoing detailed in the WisDoJ report is of the deeply fascist variety that exceeds my poor powers of denunciation. Suffice it to say that it combines the instruments of tyranny — physical torture omitted — in the service of the suppression of conservatives. The story is shocking almost beyond belief. One might ask where the outrage is, but at this point we should probably ask if anyone is paying attention.

California to bring back net neutrality… but only for California by Jazz Shaw – “Best of luck, Californians. Remember… when the revolution begins, you’ll want to chat with the folks who voted in all those gun control laws too.”

“California doesn’t have their own internet. (Which is kind of a shame because if they did, the rest of us could simply filter them out.) So if they’re going to impose state-level regulations on entities which operate on a national and, in most cases, international basis, that means that those providers and associated entities are going to need to set up an entirely separate service structure for users inside that one state. (Well… possibly two states, since Washington is talking about it too.) That’s going to cost extra most likely. And who is going to pay those additional costs for special services? If you said the service providers will just suck it up, buy yourself a ticket to Venezuela where such thinking is all the rage.

Of course, the end users will have to foot the bill. Which means that Californians will wind up paying more for the same service everyone else is receiving because of state-level government regulations. Of course, we’re talking about California here, so that’s just a fact of life already. Perhaps nobody will notice.

Midnight at the Democracy Dies in Darkness Café By Clarice Feldman – “It wasn’t all sadness and gloom, though. The gang in the MAGA hats were having a great time of it.” A summary with wit and humor.
