Turned out to be false. Again and Again and it still keeps coming.

Lies, Damned Lies, & COVID-19. Tyler Durden – “As always, fraudulent language goes hand in hand with fraudulent political posturing, of which the Atlantic article I’ve already mentioned — oozing crocodile tears over the excesses of the cops while oblivious to the Constitution-defying antics of Governors Cuomo, Murphy, Whitmer et al. — is a rather rank example.”

“Of course, nothing I can write is going to penetrate the minds of people who have drunk the lockdown Kool-Aid and will hear, in my dissection of the fraudulent language used by “public servants” to foment poverty and to shred the Bill of Rights, only some sort of “coronavirus denial.”

So let me say it clearly: the coronavirus epidemic is real. Okay? It exists — but saying it exists is a mere truism. Iraq exists too, and it was once ruled by a particularly vicious dictator — though the fact that his worst atrocities were committed with extensive US support is mentioned far less often than it should be.

But it is still true that the American and British publics were tricked into endorsing a criminal invasion of that country on the strength of false claims. And no assortment of after-the-fact apologetics can turn those lies into truths.

  • just about everything we were told about COVID19 has turned out to be false.

  • We were told the virus would kill millions in the US alone, and that was false.

  • We were told lockdowns would make it go away, and that was false.

  • We were told we would only be confined until the rate of new cases leveled off, and that was false.

  • We were told that while the outbreak lasted no state government would tolerate any sort of public gathering for any reason, and that was false.

  • We were told that anyone who questioned the wisdom of the draconian restrictions foisted on us by our governments was a crypto-Nazi whose real goal was to kill off the weak — and that was false, not to mention slanderous.

  • Most unforgivably of all, we were told — and told, and told — that morality was entirely on the side of the democracy-destroyers. That was a lie of breathtaking proportions.

Attorney General Bill Barr Removes SDNY Attorney Geoffrey Berman – UPDATE: Berman Refuses to Leave… sundance – “the Washington Post (above) and the New York Times (LINK) have both written pearl-clutching articles about Barr using DOJ “outsiders”; yet never once have they noted the FISA Court order that preceded all of these outside USAO’s entering the picture and receiving instructions from Bill Barr.”

Some, like on Volokh portray this as part of a Trump Friday might massacre tied in with firing several IG’s. What those who sneer at the President miss is the evidence of complicity of these federal officials in improper prosecution, FISA court abuse, and other problems. What has to be done, besides smear and sneer is to find ways to obstruct cleaning out the swamp and that usually means lawfare. Any loophole, any gotcha, any pretense will do. As with Berman, any degree of resistance necessary is within the realm of possibility.

Class, Not Race, Divides America. Victor Davis Hanson – “It is the truth that the white progressive dares not to utter.” … “we have reached the surreal point at which the nation’s privileged whites on campuses such as Harvard, Yale, and Stanford, in the top echelon of politics, and the corporate and entertainment worlds, all deplore in the abstract something they call “white privilege” in others who have never really experienced it.”
