Russiagate’s Damage To The Country Will Take Years To Realize. Willis L. Krumholz – “The media and Democrat Party have dug themselves so deeply in a hole, they must keep on digging. That’s absolutely terrible for this country, as has been this entire endeavor.”

“No evidence of collusion was found between the Trump campaign and Russia. Leftwing media that had spent years pumping the conspiracy theory of Trump-Russia collusion made sure to add that the report “stops short of exonerating [Trump] for obstruction of justice.” Ergo, the report stays away from the patently ridiculous charge of obstruction, which would seek to politicize and decimate a president’s Article II powers.

But Democrats are making sure to stress that investigations into Trump are ongoing—in Congress, and in the federal prosecutor’s office in the Southern District of New York. And CNN promised the “Mueller report is just the start of a new Russia showdown.”

The mainstream media was just as deranged. For the entire year of 2017, anything that could damage Trump, no matter how outlandish, was published. Journalistic standards collapsed.

if you were ever tied to Trump, you were treated differently.

Regular American families who used to agree to disagree about politics are now at each other’s throats. After all, the media has been telling people that Trump is a traitor. How could any decent person support a traitor?

The damage to America’s interests, and a rational foreign policy discourse, has also been far-reaching and yet to be realized.

liberalism is dead. It has been replaced by an insane, corporatist, identity-politics-fueled, and, yes, pagan mob that would only be possible in a country sliding towards post-Christianity. The new left is power-hungry, wants nothing to do with the traditional working class, and the ends always justify the means.

What Price Maddow? Stephen Ryan – “the folks who truly deserve to be put in their place and totally humiliated are the viewers of these pretend news shows.”

“But the ringmaster understood that nobody listens to the critics. What mattered most was the act: the bearded lady would be on the show the next day and the mob would show up.

The Trump tax return debacle, in certain ways, was a game changer for progressive media.

The fallout from the Trump tax return show was that network news producers tossed their journalistic ethics out of the window. …

The Russia/Trump collusion story became the “Greatest Show on Earth”. Money, prizes, and careers were up for grabs. The circus act took off and P.T. Maddow became a star, a rating behemoth and a gigantic moneymaking machine for MSNBC.

But now, Donald Trump’s total vindication of the charge that he colluded with the Russians to win the presidency has starkly revealed an ugly corruption between important institutions of the United States.

We can be sure of one thing: the perpetrators of the Russia conspiracy theory, the politicians and the journalists, will not police themselves. It will be business as usual unless voters understand that being lied to by powerful institutions is a lot more dangerous than “climate change.”

But don’t hold your breath. The expensively educated folks who blindly watch Rachel Maddow spin her web of nonsense will be the last people on earth to admit they were duped.

As Mark Twain said: ‘It’s Easier to Fool People Than to Convince Them That They Have Been Fooled.”

ABC, Guardian: Trump trying to “weaponize” the Mueller report. Ed Morrissey – “Well, we can’t have that, can we? We must remake the story from Democrats blowing all their credibility into Trump weaponizing the fact that the Democrats’ public accusations of treachery just got shown to be baseless after two years of hammering (another clichéd metaphor!) Trump with them. That wasn’t “weaponizing,” but apparently disarming the argument is.”

Russiagate: why did the press do it? neo – “The fact that Russiagate was actually the un-Watergate probably did not even cross their minds.

No, Sarah Sanders didn’t accuse Trump’s Russiagate critics of treason. Allahpundit – “When you read a transcript of what she said, the identity of the “treasonous” party might seem ambiguous. When you watch, it isn’t. And yet, because partisanship in 2019 requires an endless supply of bad faith and willful misunderstanding, hundreds of people on social media who actually did watch the clip are in a lather about the White House supposedly claiming Russiagate true believers are traitors.”

“Right, right, it’s not news that social media is populated by morons. But what’s the New York Post’s excuse?

The DOJ Just Delivered A Major Blow To Obamacare. Beth Baumann – “The Department of Justice on Monday sided with U.S. District Court Judge Reed O’Connor’s previous ruling that the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, is unconstitutional.” See also Jazz Shaw DOJ siding with Fifth Circuit in striking down all of Obamacare.

Today’s Green New Deal vote is going to be spectacular. Jazz Shaw – “we’re probably about to watch the Democrats defeat a measure they accused Republicans of not supporting all through last year.
