Why is the problem bigger than you might think.

Consider this headline: William Barr’s Perversion of JusticeNew York Times, by Staff. It completely ignores the facts on the table. See Paul Mirengoff: An absurd and outrageous shot at Bill Barr or Ryan Saavedra: Democrat Law Professor Blasts Obama For False Statements About DOJ Dismissing Flynn Case then contrast and compare to the Washington Examiner

Editorial: Travesty of justice finally ends for Michael Flynn – “The Flynn case is a stunning example of an abuse of power at the highest levels of the FBI, which was determined by any way possible to bring him down as part of an effort to damage Trump.

Jason Killmeyer: Our Endangered Transfer of Power – “The 2020 election is fast approaching. If we end up with a landslide, we should be OK;” … “Our risk calculus is off. This is not the time or place in our history to rollout widespread changes to how Americans vote

Clarice Feldman: January 5, 2017: A Day that Should Live in Infamy – “This week saw two major legal developments … Altogether they show a scandalous miscarriage of justice and media malpractice, which continues to this day, instigated by Barack Obama.”

“Once again, Obama makes a statement about law which is demonstrably false. In fact, not once to my recalling has he ever made a statement about the law that is correct.

As to the facts, you simply cannot count on media reports, so I will link for you the Government’s Motion to withdraw the case.

As you read it you will see that once specially appointed U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen finally found the documents long hidden from the defense and court in the bowels of the FBI and DoJ, the government had little choice but to withdraw the case.

A number of analyses — by people who do know enough not to simply rewrite Obama press dictation — provide an accurate and chilling account of the persecution of Flynn.

Monica Showalter: Obama is panicking— “A huge Obama White House effort to spy on a political opponent and prevent him from serving in public office is slowly being exposed.” … “Sundance over at Conservative Treehouse has a very deep dive (it took me an hour to read it, but it never got boring) into the roots of Obama’s rage and why he’s running scared and starting to fight back.” but look at how he and his cohort fights back … e.g.

Charles Hurt: ‘Demand Justice’ Fight Back — Against Judges Who Like the Constitution – “The baseless accusation is even more audacious for anyone with the faintest memory of the decades-long onslaught these people have waged against an independent judiciary in America.

Rutger Bregman: The real Lord of the Flies: what happened when six boys were shipwrecked for 15 months – “When a group of schoolboys were marooned on an island in 1965, it turned out very differently from William Golding’s bestseller” … “In hindsight, the secret to the book’s success is clear. Golding had a masterful ability to portray the darkest depths of mankind. Of course, he had the zeitgeist of the 1960s on his side, when a new generation was questioning its parents about the atrocities of the second world war.

“For centuries western culture has been permeated by the idea that humans are selfish creatures. That cynical image of humanity has been proclaimed in films and novels, history books and scientific research. But in the last 20 years, something extraordinary has happened. Scientists from all over the world have switched to a more hopeful view of mankind. This development is still so young that researchers in different fields often don’t even know about each other.

Andrew Gilbertson: Blinded by Doomsday Predictions Masquerading as Science – “we have a serious problem with something masquerading as science: the manipulation of facts and data to create fearful predictive models.

“It is important to emphasize that these ill fated prognostications were not made by carnival hucksters or Times Square loons in sandwich boards; they were the work of highly respected scientists and statisticians, widely publicized in the national media. All were taken seriously at the time.

We need to respect science, but we must stop blindly accepting scientists’ unproven doomsday predictions.

George Neumayr: The Two Popes Problem – “When Pope Francis grants an interview, he makes news by subverting Church teaching. When Pope Benedict XVI gives one, he makes news by upholding it. Therein lies the two popes problem about which the media can’t keep complaining..”
