Paranoia on parade. Strategic logic of mass conflict.

White House Releases List of President Trump’s Accomplishments – And It Is Historic! Joe Hoft –

Aside from Lincoln, Trump faced ‘most vile, venomous assault ever conducted’ on a President. Frieda Powers – citing Lou Dobbs: “This is a nation that can’t heal, that cannot come together until we understand the truth and the reality of what we have witnessed over the course of the past four years of this man’s presidency,”

Pelosi’s Third Impeachment Folly. Clarice Feldman – “Does the President have a right to free speech?” … “This owes much to our nation’s current lack of a free and honest media, without which a free society cannot trust information. Instead, we are stuffed to the gills with propaganda factories working with partisan politicians.”

What Do They Think Is Going to Happen: Intense Security Response Across Country to Inauguration. Nick Arama – 30,000 troops. Razor wire fences. “As I reported, they’re armed and not just with the normal riot response weapons. They’ve also been given authority to use lethal force.” … “Welcome to the Security State. For our own good, of course.”

What About “Whataboutism”? Paul Mirengoff – “In our current discourse, whataboutism is used by Democrats/leftists to counter conservatives who, when discussing questionable actions by Donald Trump or violent conduct by a pro-Trump mob (for example), point to similar behavior by others that Democrats/leftists did not condemn. Those of us who point to the double standard are accused of whataboutism.”

The Disney company adds to the list of reasons for boycotting it. Andrea Widburg – “while nobody was looking, Disney became increasingly politically correct.”

“When I really started turning on Disney, though, was about a decade ago, when I saw what my kids wanted to watch on Disney’s TV channel. The stuff for teens wasn’t just mindless. It was also pushing an agenda. It had frantic tweens and teens running around in a world with useless, foolish adults, and meaningless little “be yourself” or “believe in yourself” platitudes. The girls wore clothes that made them look a little bit cheap, and the boys were immature and ineffectual.

Additionally, what I found even more disturbing is how their young TV stars went off the deep end as they grew older.

Scott Adams Lists Six Easy Ways to Know If You’re Living In a Propaganda Bubble. Brandon Morse – “and the Fake News Industry is malicious,” … “The truth is, the left is adhering to its most practiced tactic of never letting a crisis go to waste.”

It’s Not Censorship, It’s a Coordinated Effort. Lee Smith – “A time to strengthen families and communities.” … “it’s part of the strategic logic of mass conflict. The leadership of the political, corporate, and cultural establishment that today rules America shut down the communications of those against whom they are waging war.”

Amazon Goes Mad. James V. DeLon – “The media, naturally, pooh-poohed the claims and trotted out various experts to minimize them. In fact, though, Amazon’s defenses look thin and would, I would bet, crumble in actual litigation, given an honest court.”

“Assume that you are chief information officer of a large company. How can you justify using Amazon as your host server, knowing that you are now naked to the whims of its censors or to the machinations of a competitor with better connections at Amazon than you have? And that Amazon is contemptuous of your ability to get legal relief? Today’s action seems to be a combination of ideology and avarice, but pure financial corruption will not be far behind.

Prosecutors Face Daunting Challenge in Wake of Capitol Riot. Kevin Daley – “Prosecuting rioters is hard by nature, since the chaos mobs unleash makes it difficult to establish facts and assign blame” … “Such challenges undermined over 100 cases federal prosecutors brought against Inauguration Day rioters in 2017.” this invites whataboutism …

How the Democrats got the voting rules changed. Neo – “Years ago I was unaware of the important of that SOS role in elections.” … “There is an extra problem, as well, which is that these issues and this history is nitpicky and boring to most people.”
