The real threat is inside

Obama’s Benghazi Body Bags No Mere Conspiracy Theory by Daniel John Sobieski – “The arrogance of the man who lied to the parents of the Benghazi dead in front of their sons’ caskets as they were returned to the country they fought for is mind-boggling.”

“As he attempted to rewrite many chapters of his failed presidency in a speech at the University of Illinois, he called the accurate and documented reports of the criminal negligence of secretary of state Hillary Clinton and himself during the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on our Benghazi compound a mere “conspiracy theory.”

Conspiracy theories don’t produce body bags, sir, but perhaps you don’t remember that night all too well because you spent the time four brave Americans were being killed under your command in Libya readying up for a Las Vegas fundraiser.

Conspiracy theories don’t produce body bags” and the memory lingers. It is behaviors and events that tell the tale and there is a stunning contrast between the previous and current administrations.

Anti-Trump desperation grows by Don Surber – “The media keeps crying impeachment while President Trump plants the seeds, reaps the wheat, grinds the grain, and bakes the bread.”

“President Trump delivers, on time and under budget.

The media cannot stand it because he keeps proving them wrong. For example, they said — and hoped — that tariffs would trigger a global recession.

Maybe in China and Europe.

I agree with Conrad Black, who wrote, “Trump has not got to this historic point by being the blustering and crooked buffoon portrayed by his enemies. He is a cunning and pitiless enemy. This is political mortal combat, and in evidentiary as in electoral matters, you can’t fight something with nothing.”

And nothing is all they have.

President Trump has something. Plenty of something.

The Circus of Resistance by Victor Davis Hanson – “The resistance to Donald Trump was warring on all fronts last week.” … “Barack Obama decided that ex-presidents should attack current presidents, and thereby reminded the country why Trump was elected.” Many other examples are provided.

“To cut to the quick, the op-ed was published to coincide with the latest Bob Woodward “according-to-an-unnamed-source” exposé, Fear. The intent of anonymous and the New York Times was to create a force multiplying effect of a collapsing presidency—in need of the Times’ sober and judicious handlers, NeverTrump professionals, and “bipartisan” Democrats of the sort we saw during the Kavanaugh hearing to “step in” and apparently stage an intervention to save the country.

The op-ed is the latest cartoon of Trump, the Road Runner, finally, at last, and for sure driven off the cliff by the Resistance as Wile E. Coyote—infuriated by yet another Road Runner beep-beep. There were earlier and serial Looney Tunes efforts to nullify the Electoral College, to sue about election machines, to boycott the Inauguration, to introduce articles of impeachment, to invoke the 25th Amendment, to try out the Emoluments Clause and the Logan Act, to sue by cherry picking liberal federal judges, to harass officials in public places and restaurants, to warp the FISA courts, to fund a foreign spy to do opposition research, and to weaponize even further the FBI, NSA, and Justice Department—along with the now-boring celebrity assassination chic rhetoric of blowing up, stabbing, shooting, burning, hanging, smashing, and decapitating Donald J. Trump.

The compare and contrast is laid out on the table for a blunt vivisection. There is so much material it is a wonder the table doesn’t collapse. Then take a gander at Betsy Newmark’s commentary to see just how serious reality distortion can be: “contemptible”, “buffoon”, “ the lowering of standards”, “constant mad, solipsistic tweeting”, “he drives his opponents so crazy that they expose themselves to be little better than he is” … compare and contrast and it leaves any rational person wondering what standards Newmark is using to evaluate behavior – or has TDS overridden reason?

Anatomy of a Fusion smear (4) by Scott Johnson – “Peter Stone and Greg Gordon of McClatchy News smeared Cleta Mitchell in their story “Lawyer who worked for NRA said to have had concerns about group’s Russia ties.”

“The gist of the McClatchy story was false. In “Fake news: A case study,” we saw Cleta dispute the veracity of the smear directly with Stone and Gordon. “You took some unnamed source,” she noted, “you put their false statement as the lead and you put my truthful on the record statement down in the story as some sort of denial. You are reprehensible. Your tactics are disgusting.” Bingo. We also saw that Stone and Gordon were unable to substantiate the smear with a single fact.

Working on this series over the past week, I finally came to understand Simpson’s modus operandi and to absorb related news of which I was only vaguely aware. As one might infer from Stone and Gordon’s April story about Cohen in Prague, Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS continue their efforts to undermine Donald Trump unabated. The Federalist’s Sean Davis reported earlier this year, around the same time that Stone and Gordon’s Cohen in Prague story was published: “CONFIRMED: Former Feinstein Staffer Raised $50 Million, Hired Fusion GPS And Christopher Steele After 2016 Election.” The mission continues.

Harvard, Google, NSF, Springer, and others need a vigorous rat control by Luboš Motl – “Electronic tools make it easier for dishonest SJW terrorists to perform Stalinist purges.”

“Dr Hill has learned about the insufferable situation and the witch hunts that the feminists and similar radical neo-Marxists instantly launch whenever someone dares to say something that is related to this basic “heresy” – that men and women are different.”

The most unprecedented development occurred at the very end when the paper was already printed in an electronic journal. Totally silently, the paper was erased on the web and a completely different paper was placed on that spot. It’s creepy. And it’s clearly analogous to the “commissar who vanished” at various photographs with Joseph Stalin. Stalin liked someone up to the moment XY, then he disliked him, murdered him, and he erased the memory of that person from the photographs.

Feminists and similar neo-Marxists are obviously the current counterparts of Joseph Stalin. So far, they didn’t get the power to murder 50 million people – although many of them would love to surpass that number. But in other respects, what they can do is worse than what Stalin could. One difference is the following: In the good old times, a photograph was printed in the newspapers and there were hundreds of thousands of copies of that photograph. New photographs without the commissar could have been printed but the commissar couldn’t have quite vanished – there were many copies printed on the good old paper. Some of them were in people’s collections, bookshelves etc.

The story shows that the real threat for the integrity of the scholarly process aren’t politicians. It’s the feminists and other extreme activists masquerading themselves as scholars.

the real threat isn’t always obvious.
