Scandal Free? Big lies + fake news = mythology

I & I Editorial Board: Where Does Lt. Gen. Flynn Go To Get His Reputation Back? – “It’s time to restore this good man’s good name, tarnished by an illegitimate and illegal investigation by Deep State insiders, and make just restitution for his significant financial losses. It’s the least America can do.

Ernest S. Christian: ‘A Colossal Public Policy Calamity’ – “How did it come to pass that something as patently wrongheaded and predictably calamitous as the nationwide one-size-fits-all 2020 “lockdown” of America could occur?” … “The lockdown arose from the synergistic co-joinder of two contagions: The COVID-19 virus that can kill the body and the fear virus that clouds the mind.

“The movers and shakers, the crisis makers, were those who created the fear virus with their now suspect but then hysteria-inducing predictions that the COVID-19 virus would kill upward of a quarter-million Americans, or many more, and those in the media who relentlessly spread the hysterical fear virus into every nook and cranny of the nation.

<p”>Kaylee McGhee: Fake news isn’t a problem as long as it’s anti-Trump – “A deceptively edited video of Vice President Mike Pence is making the rounds, so it’s time for a fact check: … Any claim to the contrary is fake news spread by people unwilling to do a little research.” … “Kimmel was ultimately forced to acknowledge his mistake. His apology naturally included a not-so-subtle jab at the Trump administration. Alas, what more can we expect from people whose instinctual anti-Trump mindset leads them to actively create and spread fake news?
