rationalizations and obsessions

Hubris as A Strategy… sundance – “This is a justification memo, written by an outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice to document why there have been multiple false and misleading statements given to the incoming President Trump and all of his officials.”

“Every lie, every omission, every false and/or misleading statement, must first be filtered through the “By The Book” prism of Trump being considered a Russian asset. This is the justification trap democrats are waiting to exploit for maximum damage and diminishment of counter attack.

The “By the Book” justification, where every action could have been taken because Trump might have been an actual Russian operative, is the weapon under the camouflage tarp as the radical left lures-in their political opposition. They shrug their shoulders and say in condescending voice: ‘well, we didn’t know; we had to be prudent‘, etc.

Getting outraged about the Obama administration’s lies, misstatements and fabrications can backfire if you don’t first think about it from their constructed frame-of-reference.

How do you solve a problem like James Comey? Patricia McCarthy – “The I.G. Report on Comey released on Thursday is a damning document. Much of what it reveals is not new, but the details within are shocking.” Basically, the system of checks and balances seems to have failed and, worse, many are beginning to think the implementation o necessary consequences has failed as well.

“All of the participants must pay for their crimes. If they do not, the Constitution means nothing, the law means nothing, justice and fairness no longer prevail in America. May AG Barr and John Durham be the men we have been promised they are. Comey and his colluders in crime need to go to prison. That is how you solve the problem of culprits like Comey. And that is all he is, a culprit, no better than a common criminal who hoped to sidestep the law. Either way, there will be a special place in hell and the history books for this team of turncoats.

The Mythical Trump Hydra. Victor Davis Hanson – “We forgot that hydras are mythical creatures and only the delusional believe them to be real.” … “Here are a few of his supposedly monstrous manifestations.”

“In reality, the Trump empire reportedly has declined by nearly $1 billion in net value, aside from the tens of millions of his own money that Trump spent on the 2016 campaign. Trump’s business interests are the most thoroughly investigated of any recent president in memory. Obama and the Clintons made millions from their presidencies; Trump may well end up losing billions.
the Heritage Foundation in January 2018 found that the first months of the Trump Administration were more conservative than any prior Republican in recent memory
Donald Trump is mentally and physically ill, unfit to be president … In reality, Trump easily aced the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which calibrates pre-dementia, … In terms of age, Trump seems far more vigorous than most men at 73 … Trump is able to speak extemporaneously for extended periods of time while holding the attention of an audience of thousands.
Trump’s real crime in matters of race and ethnicity is that, all during his pre-presidential career and during his time in office, he simply ignored race and thus felt no compunction about deriding anyone—white, black, brown, Asian, or Latino.
Trump is purportedly an utter incompetent executive. … In reality [economy, international relations, …]

The strange thing about these various hydra heads of Donald Trump is that very few of them were based on any empirical evidence. Instead, they revealed more about the conspiracist than the object of his conspiracy theory—namely a pathological hatred of Trump and his supporters that blinded them to the actual record of governance.

Talking about rationalizations and obsessions, consider the slew of homosexual stories today. Here’s What People Who Used To Be Transgender Are Telling The Supreme Court. Nicole Russell – “In an unusual amicus brief, a group of people who used to be transgender say that not only should gender identity not be a protected class, but that it’s an imaginary construct of traumatized minds.” This is supported, yet again, in There Is No ‘Gay Gene,’ Comprehensive Scientific Study Finds. Matt Margolis – “So, what happens when science proves that homosexuals aren’t “born that way”? Perhaps we’ll find out.” But the rationalization only gets more zealous and extreme: LGBT and fourth-graders. Phil Brizzolara – “Illinois has passed a law requiring that “the history curriculum in public schools include lessons on [sic] the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people ” see also Portland State U Punishes Professor For Proving Gender Studies Is A Joke. Peter Wood and David Randall – “Dr. Boghossian, an assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State, joined two other academics to hoax the purveyors of gender studies and kindred fields committed to turning personal gripes into taxpayer-funded “studies.” … Portland State stuck with the idea that he had carried out “improper research on human subjects.”
