Shameless ignorance, a path to perdition

Brief Heads Up: Schiff And The Death Of Shame In America. Mark Wauck — “We don’t all live in a post-shame era, and distinctions do need to be drawn in that regard. We need an accounting that is thorough and honest in all respects, as well as one that gives credit where it’s due.”

The Steele Dossier and the End of Shame In American Politics. J. Turley — “The problem with shame is that it requires a sense of guilt over one’s actions. In the age of rage, there appear fewer and fewer actions that are beyond the pale for politics. Take Adam Schiff and the Steele dossier.”

In Brief: The Myth of ‘Fact-Checking’ citing Mark Hemingway — “How Facebook created the world’s largest censorship operation.”

Something very peculiar is happening with our Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Andrea Widburg — “why now, of all times, is the Biden administration selling off America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to Asia?”

Nick Sandmann reaches out to Kyle Rittenhouse. neo — “Sandmann has learned more in a few years through the crucible of his personal experience than most people learn in a lifetime. He writes:”

Kyle Rittenhouse, Both Right and Righteous, Patrick Buchanan — “While Rittenhouse’s decision to go to Kenosha may have been unwise, it was also unselfish and, indeed, brave. He was risking his life in a riot to defend another man’s property and do his civic duty in a situation of lawlessness. He could have stayed home, as almost everyone in Kenosha did that night, while their city was burned and pillaged.”

Goal Of Rittenhouse Prosecution and Media Manipulation Is To Render “Citizens Not Being Able To Defend Themselves”. William A. Jacobson — “t’s similar to so many other cases. The media immediately sets a narrative, a narrative which is hostile to the defendant in a highly politicized case. It happened in the George Zimmerman case, and has happened in multiple cases and you can’t get rid of that narrative.”

If you can’t defend yourself when someone’s beating you in the head with the skateboard, if you can’t defend yourself when they’re running at you while you’re on the ground and they lower their Glock pistol towards your head from three feet away, if you can’t defend yourself when someone who’s already that night threatened to kill you, if he caught you alone, and is now reaching for your gun, if you can’t defend yourself in those circumstances and the full weight of the state and the full weight of the media is going to come down on you, then we are in a really bad place.

The Media’s Verdict on Kyle Rittenhouse. Bari Weiss — “Why so many got this story so wrong.” … “This wasn’t a disinformation campaign waged by Reddit trolls or anonymous Twitter accounts. It was one pushed by the mainstream media and sitting members of Congress for the sake of an expedient political narrative—a narrative that asked people to believe, among other unrealities, that blocks of burning buildings somehow constituted peaceful protests.”

From George Zimmerman to Kyle Rittenhouse: A Decade of Woke Misrule. Jack Cashill — “Beginning with the Sacco and Vanzetti case in the 1920s, the left lied to conceal the guilt of the guilty. … No longer content to conceal the guilt of the guilty, they lied now to conceal the innocence of the innocent.”

Although he has learned through trial and error to keep a low profile, Zimmerman has been quietly cheering on Rittenhouse from the sidelines. Better than anyone, he knows that wokeism is the one religion that offers neither mercy nor redemption—even to the innocent.

‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley Gets 41 Months in Prison. Robby Soave — “Plus: Detroit schools close on Fridays just because, Scott Alexander offers a plausible ivermectin theory, and more…” … “Chansley felt he had no choice but to accept the plea deal that came with that 41-month sentence, of course, because he couldn’t risk a trial that could send him to prison for 20 years. This is the sad reality of the criminal justice system: Defendants often plead guilty in order to avoid absurdly long mandatory sentences, and are thus denied the opportunity to actually attempt to prove their innocence before a jury of their peers.”

Terror in the Capitol Tunnel. Julie Kelly — “The D.C. Medical Examiner’s Office concluded Rosanne Boyland died of a drug overdose but that autopsy result is highly suspicious.”

Nichols’ account is detailed in an appalling new court filing that confirms what American Greatness has reported for months: on January 6, D.C. Metro and Capitol police assaulted nonviolent protesters with explosive devices, rubber bullets, tear gas, and in some cases, their own fists and batons. A tunnel on the lower west side of the Capitol building became a dangerous—and, likely for at least one protester, deadly—battle scene as police viciously attacked American citizens on the “hallowed” grounds of the U.S. Congress.

A Class Act Expelled From School. A Victorian Teacher — “The lunacy of it all is that the protected are demanding that the unprotected partake of the protection that the protected have used, because the protection that the protected have used isn’t protecting them from either the protected or the unprotected. It’s like something out of a Monty Python movie.”

For Those Who Think the Vaccines Will End the Epidemic. Kevin Roche — “All the damage we did made no difference, just imposed a lot of self-inflicted wounds.  Time to stop that.”
