How Donald J. Trump Accidentally Revived ‘Objective Truth’. Glenn T. Stanton – “At the very least, Donald J. Trump served to convince the left that objective truth does indeed exist and it does make unbending claims on all of us.” … “As “fact-checking” became the secular press’s new religious duty to the world in the Age of Trump, we are all objectivists now — and of the very fundamentalist flavor.”

Yet Another Trump Impeachment? Sorry, But This One Too Is A Sham. I & I Editorial Board – “No, that’s not a mere assertion or our opinion. It’s based on the only document we know that guides how impeachments should take place. It’s called the Constitution.”

Trump’s Reckless ‘Stolen Election’ Talk Is The Reason He Should Be Impeached. Kyle Sammin – “The Constitution allows for speech that makes conspiracy-mongering legal, but we must demand more from our presidents than minimal compliance with the law.” There are so many false presumptions in this piece. Here are a few:

  • “Conservatives who wish to honor and safeguard our laws and traditions should not instantly dismiss the events of the past few months, including Trump’s role in stirring up conspiracy theorists and rioters at the Capitol.” Conspiracy? No, there were facts on the ground and testimony to deal with.
  • “Conservatives who wish to honor and safeguard our laws and traditions should not instantly dismiss the events of the past few months, including Trump’s role in stirring up conspiracy theorists and rioters at the Capitol.” That means the the election laws should be dealt with and noting a crime that is as blatant as the many involved in this election is not “stirring up” but rather asking for proper law enforcement.
  • “when “count every vote” turns into “believe everything you read on the internet,” Trump’s behavior started to turn away from the norm in an alarming fashion.” This is a logical fallacy based on a falsehood.
  • “It was bad enough that the president’s misrepresentation of the election results had encouraged a mob to assemble in D.C.” The results were not misrepresented. There was no mob assembled. Rather there was a public protest asserting a need to investigate allegations and answer questions.
  • “To say such things to an angry crowd may not constitute intentional incitement, but does show a depraved indifference to the rule of law and the fate of the republic.” Angry crowd? Not in evidence. The used of ‘depraved’ is indicative of bias expressed as judgment.

And so it goes but it is what civilization and society are up against.

Democratic Senators Recognizing Impeachment Is a Fairy Tale Seek Other Options. Jeff Charles – “Despite the certainty that impeachment will fall flat, Democratic lawmakers are polishing off their lances to tilt at the proverbial windmill”

The Science is Settled. Lefties are Fearful Scolds. Phil Shannon – “Such ‘virtue-signalling’ by the morally self-righteous Left is supported by anecdotal evidence galore but now there is hard scientific evidence for its empirical reality, as demonstrated with regard to the ‘moralisation’ of COVID-19 by the lockdown-Loving Left.” … “Moralisers thus develop an “ardent belief that others should share one’s [highly moral] convictions” and so “any behaviours that compromise those goals are seen as harmful and may elicit moral outrage”

Will The Truth On COVID Restrictions Really Prevail? (via aerohedge). Scott Atlas t RealClearPolitics.com – “Here’s the reality — almost all states and major cities, with a handful of exceptions, have implemented severe restrictions for many months, including closures of businesses and in-person school, mobility restrictions and curfews, quarantines, limits on group gatherings, and mask mandates dating back to at least the summer. These measures did not significantly change the typical pattern or damage from the SARS2 virus.”

“We know we have not yet seen the full extent of the damage from lockdowns, because it will last for decades. Perhaps that is why lockdowns were not recommended in previous pandemic analyses, even for infections with far higher death rates.

To determine the best path forward, shouldn’t policymakers objectively consider both the data and the totality of impact of policies to date?
…
America is now a country where differing interpretations of science in order to seek the truth is the new anathema.

Democrats Want Biden To Be The Dictator They Said Trump Was. I & I Editorial Board – “Donald Trump was treated by the opposition party and media (we repeat ourselves) like no other president in our memory. He was called a dictator, a tyrant, an authoritarian, and a fascist, to name a few childish invectives hurled his way. Of course his adversaries were projecting.”

New Evidence Implicates FBI Higher-Ups in Dishonesty of Anti-Trump Lawyer. Paul Sperry – “For the past year, defenders of the FBI have consistently downplayed the significance of an FBI staff lawyer falsifying evidence in the government’s investigation into Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia.” … “such explanations are challenged by new revelations from court papers filed in the case, which some civil libertarians call the most egregious violation and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) since it was enacted more than 40 years ago.”

Victor Davis Hanson:

How to Deprogram Us – “Why not borrow the current Chinese “social credit system”?

The ‘After Trump’ Era Begins – “The new AT age — “After Trump” — began on either Election Day, Nov. 3, or on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20. But either way, reality as we had known it for four years has been abruptly reinvented.”

The River of Forgetfulness. “Before we are all reprogrammed, remember for a bit longer that the reset of memory and truth is not just a political agenda, but a holistic effort to redefine our past, present, and future.”

What to Do Now? Joy Overbeck – “The Democrats never turn on their own.”

Having sown the wind, are Democrats reaping the whirlwind? Andrea Widburg – “For four interminable years, Democrats sowed discord in America. Looked at objectively, it wasn’t Trump who was “abnormal.” He was a colorful character who followed American law and tradition, always for Americans’ benefit. It was the Democrats whose response was extreme, violent, and abnormal — but the white-collar leaders and fawned upon activists were insulated from the consequences of their actions.”
