Powerful confusion and misdirection

When The Powerful Say Truth Is A Lie And Lies Are The Truth, No One Will Stand Up For America But You. Christopher Bedford — “In an age when Americans have grown used to casually shrugging away their freedoms at the whim of TV pundits, this kind of propaganda is seriously dangerous.” … “Reasonable people can disagree on if they think the Democrats or Republicans are right or wrong in their different initiatives, but the stark difference between these two top news headlines is glaring — and not too long ago would have been deeply embarrassing to any serious news editor.”

Department of Justice Is Investigating the Lead Prosecutor for the Capitol Riots and the Fix Is In. streiff — “I’d like to think that Sherwin would suffer some kind of repercussions for overtly attempting to deprive American citizens of the right to a fair trial just to angle for a bigger and better job in the Department of Justice. But the one thing we’ve learned over the past four years is that Justice takes care of its own. When you have a lawyer forge a document used to deceive a court so electronic surveillance could be carried out against a presidential candidate, his campaign, his transition team, and his administration get probation, you know that Sherwin is in no danger whatsoever of any punishment.”

First battlefront drawn in Georgia in epic fight over future of American elections. John Solomon — “Is ID requirement a voter suppression tactic or a responsible security measure?

It was they who created a sense of chaos and divisiveness, not Trump. It was very different this time.”

Getting the facts right on Operation Warp Speed. Paul Roderick Gregory — “judged by its own benchmarks — regulatory approval and vaccinations by the end of 2020 and the accelerated delivery of 300 million doses — OWS is a rare private-public partnership that has met its performance benchmarks.”

A Wilderness of Lies. The Z Man — “no one living in Russia accepted what was told to them through state media as the truth. It could be true but was most likely false. The game was to figure out what the lies meant. Instead of poring over photos in the newspapers, citizens relied on their personal networks to provide a narrative that explained what they could see happening around them. There was public truth and private truth. — This is something Americans are learning.”

Follow The ‘Science,’ They Said. Victor Davis Hanson — “As a general rule, the next time an official, a politician, or an expert lectures us on the “science,” make sure that he is not projecting his own unscientific biases onto others.” … “Science” is used to denigrate a perceived enemy of the people, and ignored to enhance a guardian of the flock.”
