Echoes of Watergate provide contrast

The Madness of Progressive Projection. Victor Davis Hanson – “What is behind this strange collective psychological condition of projecting one’s own guilt on to another?

Nixon: Victim of a Media Riot. Ben Stein – “For friends who ask, here’s the man I knew. And please remember him especially on Yom Kippur.”

Lee Smith: It’s not all about the Bidens. Scott Johnson – “Once again, much of the media seem to be treating every allegation against Trump as probable fact, while dismissing any questions and concerns as conspiracy theories.”

“Thus the panicked clamor coursing through the press at present is not about Joe Biden or his son or Trump’s alleged commerce with foreign powers. Rather, it is the fear that the Russiagate bubble is likely to burst. And the fear that none of the reporters, intelligence officials, and political operatives responsible for pushing the largest and most destructive conspiracy theory in American history will escape the ruin.

Trump’s exaggerations stand in stark contrast to Democrats’ actual lies. Howard J. Warner – a few examples …

“The media tells us regularly about President Donald Trump’s exaggerations and overstatements. Some keep count on what they call “lies” and they number these in the thousands. Trump’s hyperbole is well understood especially when he claims to be the “best” or “greatest” on any subject (such as the crowd at the inaugural). However, these kind of statements are not material lies that adversely affect policy or citizens (such as the promise that President Obama assured would allow us to keep our doctor or insurance plan). The same cannot be said about statements from many of the Democratic opposition. Unfortunately, the media’s prejudice is demonstrated by their lack of reporting on these issues.

Intel Community IG Stonewalling Congress On Backdated Whistleblower Rule Changes. Sean Davis – “Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for U.S. intelligence agencies, acknowledged that his office secretly changed key whistleblower forms and rules in September, but refused to explain to lawmakers why those changes were backdated to August.”

And then there’s Hillary Clinton: on impeachment, Watergate, and Whistlegate… neo – “The difference between the process then and the process now is extreme. During Watergate, Congress was reacting to an event, and launched a bipartisan investigation. Now, one party is using the intelligence corps to create the appearance of an event, with the long-stated goal – one made clear even before Donald Trump became president – of removing this president from office.”
