How Obama loyalists conspired to undermine the Trump transition By Rowan Scarborough – “Republican-driven investigative reports on Russia have provided an unanticipated view into secret anti-Trump maneuvers by Obama loyalists during the span of the presidential transition.”

““The Obama administration did many things in their power to harm the Trump administration as they got their feet on the ground,” Mr. Fleischer said. “All these things revolve around a tight circle that have access to the highest levels of intelligence, and they all have a common theme: Trump colluded, when there’s no evidence of it. But they were so spooked by what they saw, I think, it’s highly likely the Obama people rushed to conclusions and made life extremely difficult for the incoming team.”

Republicans cite the following examples of Obama supporters undermining Mr. Trump: … Opposition research dossier … The FBI and Steele … Peter Strzok and Lisa Page … James Clapper … State Department … Leaks … Michael Flynn … Sen. Harry Reid

“Congress should hold hearings to investigate Obama administration officials who worked behind the scenes to sabotage Trump and associates during the campaign, transition and administration,” Mr. Gordon said. “In some countries, their actions might be considered a coup attempt. And like they enjoy saying about us, ‘Let the investigation follow the facts, wherever they may lead.’”

Investor’s Business Daily: Fact Check: ObamaCare, Not Trump, Is To Blame For Rise In Uninsured In 2017 – “a closer look at the data and a review of recent history shows that Trump had nothing to do with the increase in the uninsured last year. The factors that did were baked in the cake in the summer of 2016” – but reality doesn’t matter to some.

“As Huffington Post put it: “Trump’s sabotage of the Affordable Care Act appears to be working.”

Even if Hillary Clinton had been president, the ranks of the uninsured would have started climbing again last year as ObamaCare’s years of massive rate hikes priced more and more people out of the insurance market.

Michael Bloomberg warns Americans of ‘epidemic of dishonesty’ in politics during Rice commencement speech by by Denis Slattery – “People are more devoted to their political party or tribe than the truth, he said, suggesting the nation is more divided than it has been since the Civil War.” But, of course, it’s the ‘other guys’ at fault.

“Trump, who consistently labels unflattering stories as “fake news,” is known for his shaky relationship with accuracy.

Fact checkers have determined that Trump has made hundreds of false and misleading statements since entering the Oval Office.

Trump and several members of his administration have repeatedly called climate change a hoax.

He warned that such deep levels of dishonesty could enable what he called “criminality.” Asked what specifically he was talking about, Bloomberg noted “lots of investigations” going on, but he declined to be more specific.

Several Trump campaign associates are facing criminal charges as part of a federal probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Who is it that is calling a disagreement about an opinion a lie or “fake news”? Who is in touch with reality and who is using logical fallacies and innuendo? The real question is why so many ‘prestigious’ figures have gone so far off the reservation. Why does the mayor of a major city decry an “epidemic of dishonesty” and then illustrate the problem in his own behavior?

The left can’t handle the truth on illegal immigration by Paul Mirengoff – “At the Washington Post, Paul Waldman disputed Kelly on the facts. Indeed, he called Kelly’s statements “terrible lies.” But Waldman fell far short of showing that Kelly’s statements are false, much less lies.” Dissecting yet another example of Bloomberg’s epidemic.

“Waldman surely knows he’s taking liberties with the facts. Kelly’s statement highlights the fact that immigrants from Mexico tend to come from rural areas. It stands to reason that Mexicans in rural areas will obtain less education than Mexicans in cities. Yet Waldman relies on data for all Mexicans, whether or not they immigrate to the U.S. and whether or not they come from rural areas.

If anyone is distorting the facts, it’s Waldman, not Kelly.

Thus, Tumulty’s claim that Kelly has “forgotten his own history” is well wide of the mark. It is typical, though, of the shallow way the left responds to true statements about illegal immigration. So too, sadly, are the knee-jerk accusations of racism.

Brutalized by Trump’s Winning, Liberals Nip at Conservatives’ Ankles by Kurt Schlichter – “So what do the liberals do when they are losing the all the big fights? They try to score points by taking some conservative scalps” – Schlicter goes down the list.

“I don’t think the president will indulge them here either, and he shouldn’t. He knows trying to appease his enemies is a sucker’s game – they care nothing about McCain or his family, only about recovering the power we militant Normals stripped from them when we rejected their decades of misrule back in November 2016.

Give them nothing. Not a head, not a scalp, not even an ankle to sink their tiny teeth into.

This keeps coming up. There seems to be a growing realization that ‘civil’ methods are fruitless and no quarter can be given.
