Faulty premises held with tenacity

The Five Faulty Premises Of Russiagate. Tyler Durden – “Of course, no minds were changed. Those on the Left still consider Trump to be a comprised capitalist pig guarding his tax returns with all the fervor of any good Manchurian Candidate and those on the Right still viewing Mueller as a tyrannical tool of the Deep State.

“1.) The Russians actually hacked the 2016 elections …

2.) Wikileaks was affiliated with Russia …

3.) Robert Mueller is an honorable guy …

4.) The Democrats actually care about Democracy …

5.) Intelligence Agencies under the Obama Administration were working to ensure secure elections …

As long as even some of the premises of those who oppose the U.S. Constitution are swallowed hook, line, and sinker by a significant percentage of the U.S. body politic – then these may, in the end, present as evidence in the historical record delineating the downfall of our once-great republic.

One would like to believe this sordid chapter of corruption will result in the ultimate draining of the American swamp. The nation now awaits reports from Inspector General Michael Horwitz on FISA Abuse and corruption in the Department of Justice; U.S. Attorney John Huber on Clinton Foundation illegalities; and U.S. Attorney John Durham on the malevolent origins of Russiagate.

Godspeed gentlemen. Because a very significant percentage of the American public is growing more impatient by the day. Time is of the essence. Tick tock.

Is This What Fear Looks Like? Rafael A. Mangual – “Aggressive contempt for police officers undermines the Left’s argument that minority communities are terrified of law enforcement.”

“It’s worth noting that police in these examples showed admirable restraint. Here again, large gaps separate the Left’s rhetoric and reality. The available data suggest that, though many documented cases of police misconduct exist, such cases are statistically anomalous and far from the norm. Police rarely use force; when they do, it’s rarely enough to cause serious injury. The Left’s distortion of reality may, in some cases, stoke genuine fear in minority communities—but it seems, based on video evidence, that what it inspires much more often is contempt. Either way, we’re all worse off.

Some Un-Chanted Evening. Ed Morrow – “Deconstructing a Trump rally faux pas.”

“Dear Trump haters, crack a history book. Or, if you can’t spare the time to read, watch any of the many documentaries on the rise of Hitler shown on the History Channel. The Nazis built their party on goons going into the street to beat the crap out of anyone they didn’t like. This was how they meant to shut up and intimidate anyone who got in their way and how they established a totalitarian state. Antifa is doing the same thing with their own totalitarian goal in mind.

Back in those anti-war days when hippies roamed the Earth and flower power would set us free, Americans were told that dissent was the highest form of patriotism. Now, we know better. The classification of dissent depends on against whom you direct your dissent. Some are above criticism. Way, way above. Dissent aimed at them is the highest form of treason.

That the “go back” suggestion was voluntary wasn’t noted by his attackers. Neither was the fact that Omar and Tlaib have called for involuntary deportation of citizens of a different ethnicity.

The Democrats’ counter to Trump’s spotlighting their extremism was revealed in their response to the “Send her back” chant. It was howling and growling about white nationalism.

The Left vs. Alan Dershowitz. John Hinderaker – “Among other things, Dershowitz points out the obvious difference between the hostile attitude toward him that results in printing provably false assertions with Jane Mayer’s recent sympathetic defense of Al Franken. The difference? Politics. The New Yorker has no integrity, and no one should take anything it publishes seriously.
