Is the third act commencing? Gullibility uncovered and resolved?

Panic. Delusion. FUD Mongering. It’s all on display and in your face.

Covid Confusion Is Largely Intentional. John Hinderaker – “It has taken a concerted effort by our governments, aided and abetted by the press, to sow misinformation about COVID. Examples could be multiplied endlessly. For the moment let’s describe three.”

“Following the news on a daily basis, it is hard to escape the conclusion that governments at all levels, along with more or less the entire journalism industry, are intentionally trying to convey an inflated impression of the impact of the Wuhan virus. Further, there is a growing body of empirical evidence, both nationally and internationally, that strongly suggests the cataclysmic shutdowns that have been imposed by governments both here and abroad have been more or less useless. Our governments have made mistakes that have resulted in the devastation of many millions of lives, and our reporters and editors want to keep that fact quiet. This isn’t surprising, of course: we all know what side they are on.

New York Times Manipulates FBI Lawyer’s Guilty Plea To Hide Real Spygate News. Mollie Hemingway – “Because they were co-conspirators in the hoax, too many in the corporate media are serving as obstacles to holding the FBI and other powerful government agencies accountable for their actions.” She has the catalog: “Mild Headline With Ludicrous Spin” … “Downplays Robert Mueller Ties” … “Assertions Without Evidence” … “Still Peddling Russia Claims” … “Evidence Of Broader Conspiracy” … “Factual But Not Truthful” … “More Anonymous Sourcing” … “Anonymous Leaks Good, Accountable Public Statements Bad” … “We Never Cared About Collusion” … “Downplaying FISA Abuse” … “Good-Faith Document Tampering” … “Hiding The Dossier”

“A New York Times reporter who won a Pulitzer Prize for his role perpetrating the Russia collusion hoax was tasked with framing the news that a former top FBI lawyer was to plead guilty to deliberately fabricating evidence against a Donald Trump campaign affiliate targeted in the Russia probe. The resulting article is a case study in how to write propaganda.

About Kevin Clinesmith. John Hinderaker – “Schiff’s corruption is almost impossible for a normal person to comprehend.” The FISA fraud goes deep. Here’s a review of the latest developments in context.

7 Big Stories Corporate Media Is Ignoring Because The Truth Might Help Trump. Margot Cleveland – “Due to corporate media’s hatred of Donald Trump, Americans are sorely uninformed about news stories that, under any other presidency, would deservedly flood coverage.” – Spygate, Mid East peace, Iran, China, Virus, Elections, Riots,

It Was Obama, Not Trump, Who Failed The Constitution. Horace Cooper – “In “Defender in Chief,” Yoo carefully explains the seriousness of the Trump administration in pursuing its objectives lawfully and also simultaneously reveals how so many of his critics colored outside Constitutional lines.”

“John Yoo’s latest book reveals that Trump is a bold and vigorous force in Washington, and even more an agent of support for his office just as our founders planned. While the left continually challenges his position as president and his person as a threat to our Constitutional order, the reality Yoo reveals is quite different.

In “Defender in Chief,” Yoo gives the reader a robust defense of Trump’s commitment to the American experiment. That our president has an unalloyed love of our country is clear. Now we see with numerous examples that Trump has been able to accomplish his policy goals while staying within the lines of Article II because he’s the defender in chief.

FACT CHECK: Speaker Pelosi Letter About Social Security Makes 9 False Claims. Daniel Greenfield – “The Democrat Speaker’s letter contains numerous false statements even in its first sentence.” Eamples: “America is a Republic, not a Democracy.” … “The Postal Service is not “enshrined” in the Constitution.” … “The Postal Service does not deliver Social Security checks.” … “Pelosi does not state what “devastating effects” can be seen.” … “The election isn’t being sabotaged.” … “Voters remain enfranchised.” … “The Postal Service was dysfunctional long before President Trump took office.” … “delays can hold up mail for a day or two” … “Neither lives nor livelihoods are under threat” – compare and contrast a list like this to those who assert that Trump lies in nature of supposed lie, the definition and sourcing for the allegation, and the support offered.

“Speaker Pelosi is claiming that voting in person is too dangerous, and then urging Democrat officials to hold unnecessary in-person press events at a Post Office, which unnecessarily risks spreading the virus for a publicity stunt.

6 Myths About U.S. Postal Service And The Election Debunked. Jordan Davidson – “it can be hard to discern from corporate media coverage what is actually happening. Many different networks have accused President Trump of disrupting USPS operations for political gain, even going so far as to claim he wants to “rewrite history” in a “crusade” against postal services.” Here is the reality: “USPS Is Not Required By The Constitution” … “USPS Was Created to Be a Financially Independent and Sustainable Agency” … “Postmaster General Louis DeJoy Was Not Simply Appointed For His Republican Ties” … “USPS Will Not Cease Operations Before the Election” … “Voter Fraud Through Mail-In Ballots Is Very Real” … “No, Trump Isn’t Stealing Your City’s Blue Mail Boxes”

“The conspiracy gained traction with many notable figures including Joe Biden, Taylor Swift, and members of Congress, with many tweeting about the issue on Twitter.

A reality-based look at Trump and the post office. Byron York – “The news is filled with reports of President Trump’s “assault” on the U.S. Postal Service.” … “Some of the accusations have grown so frantic that they resemble the frenzy of a couple of years ago over the allegation, from many of the same people, that Trump had conspired with Russia to fix the 2016 election. Now, it’s the Postal Service. But what, actually, is going on? Here is a brief look at some of the issues involved.”

Mail-in Voting Is Only Democrats’ Latest Election-Stealing Strategy. Bob Anderson – “This November, election integrity is on the ballot as well. If the final tally is close, is there any doubt which way the final votes will land?”

“Give them credit, Democrats are a tenacious bunch. They never give up. They understand that the game isn’t truly over when it’s “over.” Taking Vince Lombardi’s famous quote a step further, they’ve adopted the mantra, “We didn’t lose the game, we just added more time.”

Make no mistake: Democrats will employ any tactic to ensure the survival of their plan.

The New Racism. David Horowitz – “And its totalitarian agenda.” … “The intellectual level and factual basis of both these highly praised books are so low as to be bewildering.”

“The success of these books (and a rash of others like the Oprah-sponsored trash – Caste, which compares America’s treatment of black to Hitler’s treatment of Jews) is explicable only in terms of the anti-American anti-white hysteria that has swept the constituencies of the political left including its high culture since the 2016 election. This hysteria has led to preposterous claims like this Kendi statement: “Racist ideas have defined our society since its beginning and can feel so natural and obvious as to be banal, but antiracist ideas remain difficult to comprehend, in part because they go against the flow of this country’s history.”

How far is Kendi ready to take this? As far as he needs to.

Kendi’s book would not be worth noticing if it were not for the fact that his view of race and the rationale for repression is now the view of the left generally and therefore of the culture that envelops us. All that is required is the election of a political leader who has drunk this Kool Aid – someone “ woke” like Joe Biden or Kamala Harris, and the prosecutions will begin.

The Ritual Masking of America. Fay Voshell – “To contain outbreaks of plagues, physical or mental, authoritarian governments create labyrinths of regulations and laws in order to safeguard the “health” of their domains.”

“During the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, as repressive regimes seized vast areas of the world, their leaders established severe regimens formerly characteristic of the deeply religious. The habits of strict religious orders were simply retrofitted to suit secular regimes. Practices rejected as useless superstitions, such as fasting, prayer and sacramental rituals were replaced with equally severe routines. Rigorous calisthenics performed in fresh air, natural foods, and detailed public sanitation measures imitated and replaced former spiritual rituals meant to deal with the health of the soul. Socialist, fascist and communist societies saw a transference to the material realm what had once been characteristic of the spiritual realm. It was considered better to preserve the body and lose the soul.

It’s fairly clear by now that the vast majority of Americans have been made leprous outcasts even while still living within their own society.

Joe Biden’s Mask Mandate Is Only The Beginning. I & I Editorial Board – “Never mind that such a federal mandate is likely unconstitutional, this is just one of a multitude of areas where Biden, and his running mate Kamala Harris, want to impose the federal government on even the most mundane of actions by Americans.” … “as a reader service, we’ve gathered up a sampling of things they say they want to either ban or mandate should they gain access to the White House.”

Why The Price Of Face Masking Is Not As Small As It Seems. Laura Baxter – “According to my governor’s order, the mask requirement is based on ‘the unanimous recommendation of the public health experts,’ but who are these experts, and are they really unanimous?”

“There are no solutions, only trade-offs,” Thomas Sowell famously said. When government takes action, even if that action is desperately needed, we still give something up. In the case of the Wuhan virus — with the endless mask mandates, social restrictions, and shutdowns it has ushered in — that something is our precious freedom.

Czechs have moved on: 70-77% disapprove of the partial reintroduction of face masks from Sept 1st. Lubos Motl – “Between mid March and mid April, the Covid fear was genuine – even in my Czech homeland. It was spread not only among the journalists and the ordinary people but among some (but not a majority of) physicians, too.”

“That’s why I consider the Covid comments by our PM Babiš in Harvard International Review fair. Many people including sensible ones indicated fear, the government acted fast, and introduced one of the most strict and most rigorously enforced lockdowns in the world. If a shutdown has ever had a chance to make sense, it must have been very short and intense (like the fuel in a rocket that is burned as quickly as possible to kick it to the orbit). A long-term partial suppression of everything has never made any sense whatsoever (just like the wasting of fuel for keeping a rocket 100 meters above the ground).

Governors Can’t Use Coronavirus To Indefinitely Declare A State Of Emergency. Molly McCann – “In a national panic, Americans permitted executives to take power—to declare states of emergency and to implement lockdowns—and now those executives won’t give that power back.” … “Unhappily, our system today is not functioning as designed.”

“If you examine any of the lockdown or mandatory masking orders, you will largely see a relatively formulaic approach. First, the edict will recite the facts that support the claim there is an ongoing catastrophe, then it will list the legal authority, and finally the resulting mandates.

The current widespread and indefinite “emergency rule” is doing violence to our system of self-government and to the separation of powers—which is the real defense that preserves our rights. It is high time to end the tyranny of the executives.

As new academic year nears, Nevada colleges are grappling with massive changes to federal sexual misconduct rules amid pandemic. Jacob Solis – massive changes? Implementing due process and individual rights is a massive change for Nevada colleges? “Across the country, higher education institutions decried the timing.” Just like the USPS brouhaha? Just when is the timing correct to repair a festering issue?

“In short, the changes make a host of key adjustments to due process rules used in the investigation of sexual harassment or other misconduct at publicly-funded universities. Most notable among the changes is a new requirement that investigations include a live hearing complete with cross-examination, as well as adjudication of the matter by an “adviser.”

a number of other lawsuits looking to halt the rules appeared to have stalled.

‘Title IX changed’ … and so everybody’s up in arms, and that’s what has people’s attention. And I think even at that meeting at the Board of Regents meeting, I think it was missed by many that hey, that’s not the end of the story.”

The Most Revealing Poll Of All: Gun Sales. Tyler Durden – “The left has yet to realize the obvious, that criminals do not obey laws of any kind, least of all gun laws.” … “Like Hitler, Stalin and Mao, seizing the firearms of the citizenry is the first step toward despotism.”

“no Democrat has spoken out against Antifa or Black Lives Matter, or the catastrophic damage they have wrought upon those communities, apparently in the mistaken belief that a majority of Americans are sympathetic to the specious causes of the vandals. The massive increase in gun sales would seem to belie that tenet.

Will a majority of Americans choose to be disarmed like the Germans under Hitler, the Russians under Stalin and the Chinese under Mao or will they vote to preserve their constitutional right to bear arms? The astronomical surge in gun ownership these past months tells us that no, they will not vote to lose their Second Amendment right. Self-defense is a human right.

It’s the third act in a three part play according to Thomas Lifson.
