Insidious – it’s the elections integrity

VDH thinks ‘the people’ are getting pissed? – Price notes the hate rhetoric and accusations going around fit a pattern – Davenport sees the Constitution under attack – Judicial matters are considered hate speech – A freeport question surfaces – media is thin gruel examples abound – Pelosi echoes Nero – Barr is conflicted – Kübler-Ross provides one measure for how far along some are in resolving emotional turmoil: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance – that doesn’t touch the projection continuum, [see 10 Defense Mechanisms: What Are They and How They Help Us Cope. Dr. Saul McLeod]. you have to do your own assessment from the available evidence because the professionals are suffering themselves.

The Real ‘Reset’ Is Coming. Victor Davis Hanson — “The prophets of the new world order sowed the wind and they will soon reap the whirlwind of an angry public worn out by elite incompetence, arrogance, and ignorance.”

Who Are the Real Haters? Bruce Deitrick Price — “Note how this situation works.  If you disagree with a liberal, in style or substance, you are therefore a hater. … To see this phenomenon metastasized times a thousand, look at the Southern Poverty Law Center.” — “I think we see a spiritual emptiness on the left that allows leftists to criticize haters even as they are the superior haters.”

The Electoral College Goes Back to School. Huck Davenport — “Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, the one thing both should agree on is that our system for selecting the world’s most consequential person is irreparably broken.” — “Everything that is wrong with this country can be traced back to its departure from the core Constitution—the income tax, direct election of senators, the administrative state, and in the case of selecting the president, the assault on the Electoral College. ”

No, Judicial Methodology is Not the Same as Judicial Philosophy.  Jonathan Turley — “It is not the same thing but that evasion was shrugged off by members and commentators alike.” — “It has become common these days for the meaning of words to yield to the political convenience of the moment.”

A Senate Hearing and a Swimming Pool Give the Truth Its Due. Tim O’Brien — “It had to come to this. On Tuesday, March 22, 2022, Senator Marsha Blackburn asked a simple question of Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, “What is a woman?” — “Truth is Killed in Increments” — “A Battle Between Reality and Those Who Define it for Others”

The Freeport Question of Our Time. Steven Hayward — “The “Freeport Question” refers to Abraham Lincoln’s devastating question posed to Stephen Douglas in his second debate against Douglas on August 27, 1858, held in Freeport, Illinois.”

Washington Post Says Asking KBJ Questions About Her Legal Rulings Is Worse Than Falsely Accusing Kavanaugh Of Rape. Jordan Boyd — “The Post’s commentaries on Jackson are not only patently false but their phony claims about her confirmation hearing deserve endless taunting.”

The Times Is Putin Us On. John Hinderaker — “The article is weak even by the low standards of the Times. It is long on conclusions and short on evidence. The conclusions are stated up front” — “I’m not sure when it was that criticism of U.S. foreign policy became disreputable and even treasonous. But I’m guessing the relevant date is January 20, 2021.”

The Stealing of the Presidency, 2020. Rich Noyes — “Looking at all eight of these issues together, our poll found that a total of 17% of Biden’s voters told us they would have changed their vote if they had been aware of one or more of these important stories. This would have moved every one of the swing states into Trump’s column, some by a huge margin.” — “The most basic principle of our electoral system is that our leaders are chosen by the people themselves. But if the people are given systematically one-sided information, with crucial facts omitted, then the real power to choose has been stolen from them.”

How Bill Barr’s Silence Impacted The Outcome Of An Election. Jeff Carlson and Hans Mahncke — “It’s also worth noting that Barr’s decision to make a public statement contrasts sharply with former FBI Director James Comey, who claimed that as a matter of DOJ policy he wouldn’t confirm or deny if President Trump was actually under investigation in 2017.” — “Barr’s differing treatment of Biden and Trump leaves many questions unanswered.” — “By first speaking out and then remaining silent, Barr very directly put his thumb on the scale, leading to material ramifications for our country—including the geopolitical landscape we now face.”

Jan. 6 Committee Claims Its ‘Digital Watergate’ Is Above The Law. Tristan Justice — “Five decades apart, the two cases of political warfare are different only by way of method and ability to conduct illegal opposition research openly.”

Trump Sues the Russia Hoaxers. John Hinderaker — “From a quick review of the Complaint, which is 108 pages long, it does a good job of summarizing the story that most people know pretty well by now. I was mostly interested in three aspects of the Complaint: the venue, the causes of action, and Trump’s lawyers.” — “In principle I applaud Trump for going after the people who conspired against him for years and ultimately did bring him down, but I think the charge of the Light Brigade had better odds of success”

Why Stormy Daniels deserves to be punished. Rajan Laad — “A few days ago, porn star Stormy Daniels lost her appeal in her failed defamation suit against Donald Trump.  She now owes more than $300,000 in legal fees to President Trump.” — “The first reason is that was among the many scandals invented by Democrats and their propaganda wing — i.e., the mainstream media — to overturn the results of the 2016 elections. — As always, facts didn’t matter, and a TV “expert” claimed with certitude that Trump could be forced out of office and even face imprisonment for violating campaign finance laws.” — “The perpetrators deserve to be severely punished for altering the course of democracy.”

Even Republican Presidents Would Seem to Have a Right to Free Speech. Clarice Feldman — “Justice Neil Gorsuch entered the unanimous opinion in the case.  He wrote that not only do elected officials retain the right of free speech but that retention is important if they are to carry out the wishes of their constituents. — Maybe someone should slip the opinion to the hacks running the January 6 Commission.”

The False Gospel of the Enemies Within the Church. Janet Levy — “Christianity has been intricately intertwined with the history and development of America and greatly contributed to its strength.  Judeo-Christian morality, in fact, has been the compass and one of the most powerful influences on Western society.  So, the Marxists see Christianity as the main obstacle to overthrowing Westphalian principles of sovereignty.”

College Officials: The Most Witless People On Earth. I&I Editorial Board — “There are occasional instances of campus officials acting as adults. But not enough. Sad but true, most are just too dense to understand what is happening around them.”
