By their fruits shall ye know them

Trump, More Sinned Against Than Sinning. Declan Mansfield – “The public, for all their talk of wanting direct, honest politicians, can’t handle the truth.” … “As the Bible says: ‘Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap’. The Republicans and the Democrats are reaping what they sowed.”

“The larger question, though, is what did people expect when a democratically elected president is subject to a torrent of abuse, of unrelenting mainstream media lies, false accusations of collusion with Russia, and an impeachment based on a gossamer-thin excuse to remove him from office? Did they expect that nobody would become enraged at what many people viewed as the Establishment thwarting a democratic mandate? Did people really believe that nobody would notice the groundbreaking hypocrisy of the elites or the fact that the establishment was closing ranks against an outsider, one who was viewed by many voters as a tribune of the people? What did people expect when they witnessed Democratic Party politicians defending Antifa and Black Lives Matter, with Joe Biden, for example, refusing to condemn the burning of American cities, saying that Antifa is just “an ‘idea”, all the while blithely ignoring the wanton destruction? What did people expect when Kamala Harris urged people to donate to the legal funds of the rioters? What should people think when Nancy Pelosi said there was ‘no question’ that the 2016 election was ‘hijacked’? Were people to take them at their word or ignore what they said because it was a ‘debate’, as Kamala Harris excused herself after calling Joe Biden a racist and then signing on as his vice-presidential pick? What did people expect when the Democrats said that the Russians had manipulated the voting machines to ensure Trump won the election? What did people expect when there is evidence that the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency, among others – the security apparatus of America, in other words – were involved in a plot to undermine Trump’s presidency, and which even Barack Obama discussed in the Oval Office?

It’s not whether anything illegal happened, it’s the perception of criminal acts that matters here.

Justice must not only be done, but must also be seen to be done. This is where most commentators, both honest and blindly partisan, are wrong in their analysis of the riots in the Capitol building. The issue was not whether fraud was widespread in the election, the issue was how government officials and relevant institutions dealt with legal challenges to the election result. The answer is they didn’t.

What we’ve witnessed from the Establishment is the greatest rejection of democratic rights in modern political history. As the Bible says: ‘By their fruits shall ye know them’.

The Left May Have Just Invalidated Section 230 On Their Own. Scott Hounsell – “in exchange for the freedom and openness of the forum, those companies would be immune from suits regarding any questionable or offensive content.” … “once a company decides to eliminate the very basis by which they gain access to Section 230 protections, we enter into a problem”

The Klansmen of Mozilla. Robert A. Hahn – “Some weird mind disease has taken over the San Francisco Bay Area. … These people are insane. And they are dangerous. And as my colleague streiff covered yesterday, they are getting out of hand. … There is not going to be a nice way out of this.”

Teachers Unions Fail Science. John Stossel – “Union demands include all sorts of things unrelated to teacher safety.” … “It’s revealing that government-run schools fight to stay closed, while most businesses — private schools, restaurants, hair salons, gyms, etc., fight to be allowed to open.” … “Their behavior reveals their true interest: power and money. Students come third.”
