engage in the battle

Propaganda, Trust, and the Media. Rick Hayes – “So destroying the President with extreme dishonesty is a penalty-free propaganda activity for the leftist media who are also interested in systematically eliminating the first amendment.

CBO Report: 1.4 Million Lost Health Insurance Since 2016 — And Obamacare Is To Blame. John Merline – “those on the left to blame the Trump administration for its Obamacare “sabotage.” … But the data in that report — which was released on the same day the Mueller report came out and largely ignored — tells an entirely different story.” The behavior is no longer considered odd or unusual.

“All of the increase in the uninsured over the past two years — all of it — is the result of the massive rate increases Obamacare’s mandates and regulations caused. According to the Health and Human Services Dept., premiums in the individual insurance market doubled from 2013 to 2017. They shot up again in 2018.

25 Questions for Robert Mueller. Julie Kelly Liz Sheld – “The 448-page document is filled with innuendo that has nothing to do with collusion (the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape is mentioned a few times for no apparent reason); it cites irrelevant articles planted by Trump foes as evidence, including this egregious National Review hit piece on Carter Page from April 2016; and it intentionally omits material facts, including key details about the Russian lobbyists involved in the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

Elijah Cummings Won’t Let Witness Have Lawyer. Paul Mirengoff – “Barr is right to attach this condition, one that, according to a Department of Justice spokesperson, is consistent with longstanding DOJ policy.” Some might say this is a setup in collusion with the Press to impugn the President.

“Clearly, obtaining information from Gore is not the priority of Cummings and his fellow Democrats. Otherwise, they would permit a lawyer to accompany Gore, get what information they can, and (if necessary) fight any battles that may arise over executive privilege in court.

But that course of action wouldn’t maximize the Democrats’ real priority — feeding their narrative that the Trump administration is defying Congress without justification.

The Washington Post duly parrots this narrative in this article under the headline “Trump’s defiance puts pressure on Congress’s ability to check the president.”

That’s dishonest reporting. As noted, the DOJ is willing to have Gore testify. It just wants him to have a lawyer present. The Post fails to inform its readers of the real nature of this dispute.

The pattern is all too familiar. The Democrats decide on their anti-Trump theme de jour. Their media allies peddle that theme leaving out any facts that might call it into question.

If “democracy dies in darkness,” the Washington Post is doing its best to kill it.

Mueller Investigation Was Driven by Pious Hypocrisy. Victor Davis Hanson – “Despite compiling private allegations of loud and obnoxious Trump behavior, Mueller also concluded that there was not any actionable case of obstruction of justice by the president.

“Mueller’s team went down every blind alley relating to its investigation — except where Obama-era officials were likely culpable for relevant unethical or illegal behavior.

Some of the collusion narrative Muller examined was based on FBI informants’ unverified stories. Yet strangely, the Mueller team did not investigate whether it was legal in the first place for the FBI, possibly with CIA help, to use informants to spy on a presidential campaign.

What bothers many Americans about the collusion hoax is the accompanying sanctimony of the so-called investigators.

The problem with the Muller investigation, and with former intelligence officials such as Brennan, Clapper, Comey and McCabe, is pious hypocrisy. Those who have lectured America on Trump’s unproven crimes have written books and appeared on TV to publicize their own superior virtue. Yet they themselves have engaged in all sorts of unethical and illegal behavior.

The only mystery left is whether our elite investigators actually believe their own delusions. Or were they constantly broadcasting their virtue as a preventive defense against growing evidence of their own moral lapses?

The ideologue who wrote the textbook calling Trump and his supporters “racists” Paul Mirengoff – “It’s scandalous that the international education giant Pearson entrusted a relentlessly leftist ideologue and admirer of Communist era Eastern European textbooks with the task of writing its AP U.S. History book. Any school in which the book is used should be the target of vigorous protests. The political blowback should be fierce.

Did President Trump obstruct justice? Judge Andrew P. Napolitano – “On obstruction, the report concluded that notwithstanding numerous obstructive events engaged in by the president personally, the special counsel would not charge the president and would leave the resolution of obstruction of justice to Congress.” The Judge presents the Democrat case but misses on two critical issues. First is that he takes the report as gospel and second he conflates speech with actions. As others have noted, the report is highly biased and has no provision for any cross examination or rebuttal. The idea that discussing options is equal to implementing decisions is also very dangerous territory for jumping to conclusions. Napolitano does illustrate just how difficult it can be to honor integrity.
