Moral failures with blindness

The Structural Legal Rot Runs Deep. Clarice Feldman — “It will be a lot longer and harder to turn the country around than you might otherwise imagine.”

Dismantle the D.C. Company Town. Roger Kimball — “It’s time that Americans faced up to the reality that their governing apparat is a corrupt, self-engorging Leviathan” … “The real issue here is something I have been harping on for the last couple of years: the issue of the decaying legitimacy of our institutions. Increasingly, once-respected institutions like the FBI, Congress, the Justice Department, to say nothing of the educational establishment and corporate culture, have lost their claim on the people’s allegiance”

Jonathan Turley: Dems May Be Ensuring Their Own Destruction With Latest Moves by Jan. 6 Cmte. Nick Arama — “This has not been the way the DOJ has handled such things in the past, and that’s a problem”

The Depp Trial & The Demise Of The ACLU | ZeroHedge. Jonathan Turley — “With this free fall at ACLU has come an endless line of controversies” … “It ultimately was the reputation of the ACLU, not Depp, that may have suffered the most in the trial. Ironically, for critics, Amber Heard became the fitting face and ambassador of the ACLU: conflicted, confused, and corrupted.”

Another Justice Department Fail: The Flynn Unmasking. Julie Kelly — “Bash’s punt on the matter doesn’t change the fact that classified information was leaked to the media by several Obama intelligence officials to destroy a three-star general, sabotage the Trump White House, and justify the destructive special counsel investigation that undermined the first half of Trump’s term. And the public, more than five years later, still doesn’t know who did the leaking.”

School shootings show our leaders, not Americans, are the moral failures. Glenn H. Reynolds — “when the facts come in, it invariably turns out that the tragedy doesn’t stem from a spiritual failing in America but rather from the fact that some (most?) of our institutions are run by creeps, crooks and incompetents”

The US ‘Has the Most Mass Shootings’—and Other Bogus Gun Research. John Stossel — “Government’s desire to control us—and to lie to make its case—is the real emergency.”

Disarming Victims Is a Dumb Way to Fight Crime. Charlie Johnston — “One can only suppose that, confronted with such angry, shrieking hysteria, conservatives are trying to mollify a crazy person rather than reason with a serious person” … “Gun control will make things worse.  Crime control will begin to stabilize things.  Let’s get serious.  Start by understanding that disarming victims is a dumb way to fight crime.”

Dems Put Trump Advisor In ‘Shackles’ in Latest Political Hit Job. Walt Rasinger — “Unlike Lerner, who routinely invoked the 5th Amendment during her testimony, Navarro has taken the accusations head-on”

After Francis, What Stability? Rod Dreher — “as someone who admires the Catholic Church and who wants it to be strong, and as someone who is passionately interested in religion, I can’t avert my eyes from the iceberg towards which Capt. Bergoglio is sailing his ship. In fact, I think he’s broadsided the thing, for the same reasons Kale Zelden and Larry Chapp do.”
