An army of hobgoblins, policy contortions required

sundance: Democrats Denounce President Trump For Ending Syrian War They Never Authorized then McCarthy and McCaul: Bipartisan Briefing on Syria Improved After Speaker Pelosi Meltdown and Exit. “If Pelosi wants to have a war with Syria, then declare one. Or, Pelosi could call a resolution to the House floor to condemn Turkish President Erdogan for invading Syria. Instead, the House votes to denounce President Trump for getting our military out of the way.” … “Apparently once Nancy Pelosi finished her political meltdown and stomped out of the briefing, the remaining democrats and republicans engaged in a healthy discussion with U.S. military leadership and President Trump about the purpose of the U.S. draw-down.

Trump, Turkey, and the Kurds… neo – “In the current mess in Turkey with the Kurds, it’s even more apparent that most people are reacting in kneejerk fashion without much knowledge.” VDH is cited for balance but the cite is to the nagware National Review.

All Democrats are saying is, Give War a Chance. Tom Knepper – “Democrats, always reliably anti-Trump, have now carved out a position for themselves of being the party of Pro-War Protest.” and many Republicans have joined them.

“Now Donald Trump has changed all that. Driven nearly insane by their hatred of the man, and by their continued failure at bringing him down by lies and coup attempts, Democratic leadership is switching sides on the issue of continuing U.S. intervention in what was once the country of Syria. Conveniently forgetting that the blunders of the Obama/Hillary administration were in large part responsible for the Syrian civil war turning into a bloodbath, and that it was the Orange Man who was responsible for the decisive leadership that decimated ISIS, Democrats are now pretending Trump’s plan to withdraw our troops from that region would lead to catastrophe.

The bottom line is that no policy contortion is too extreme for Democrats to undergo in order to maintain their always and forever anti-Trump position.

Journalists Have Become Hoaxers. Brian C. Joondeph – “For the Washington Post, “Democracy dies in darkness” yet for the American people, their faith and trust in media is dying, not in darkness, but in the light of day, right before our eyes.

This is more of the “Orange Man Bad” filter through which virtually every news report is presented. The incompetent president is creating chaos in the Middle East by removing a handful of troops from Syria. ABC was mum when, “President Obama ignored general’s pleas to keep American military forces in Iraq.”

That last bit is hypocrisy, not a hoax, holding Democrats and Republicans to far different standards. Instead the hoax is that the video was not of the Turkish military, as reported by ABC, but instead a, “military gun shoot” at a Kentucky gun range.

journalism has been replaced by fiction writing, so-called reporters parroting partisan talking points, deliberately doctoring audio and video, ignoring inconvenient facts and contradictions, all to push a political narrative. It is, to borrow a line from FBI hoaxer James Comey, their “higher calling” to thwart the will of the people in favor of their preferences as to who leads our country.

Global Warming Alarmism Deflated By The Dem Debate. I & I Editorial Board – “While a large slice of America sees this as a feature, the Democrats’ allies in the press thought it was a bug.

“Is it possible the Democrats have ginned so many phony issues that if they bite off too many in one debate the public will suffer from an overload of nonsense? Did CNN intentionally steer clear of the subject to help Democrats avoid looking completely loony?

For once we’d like to see some healthy skepticism of the narrative among Democrats. But they will never take that road, any more than they would admit that poverty isn’t solved by government programs, that society’s ills aren’t cured by invasive public policy, or that a utopia cannot be established by the state if only the right people are issuing the directives.

The Democrats need the hobgoblin of warming to raise cash, raise political visibility, and raise the temperature of the electorate — which would be the only thing that’s getting hotter.

Hobgoblins called for reinforcements?
