Matt Taibbi, the Rolling Stone hatchet-man, has the bare honesty to admit that the outright lies that were the stock in trade of the Russiagate frenzy have convinced an outright majority of Americans that the press was in the bag for the Dems and they shouldn’t believe anything the press tells them about President Trump.
It’s a long, boring, rambling indictment but to give him credit it’s pretty substantive and paints his allies on the Left as at best partisan fools and at worst perjured criminals.
One cheer for Matt Taibbi?
Hallelujah, the endless Chinese water torture is finally over and Mueller can go off to assume his new role as head of security in Hell.
I’ve summarized his points below.
1. Mueller did not indict Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, or other people whose purported legal jeopardy was the subject of intense media speculation in the last year.
2. Mueller did not charge anyone in the Trump campaign or circle with conspiring with Russia to fix the 2016 election.
3. Mueller did not subpoena the president.
4. The president did not fire Mueller.
5. The president did not interfere with the Mueller investigation.
So here’s the question I have, when will the rest of the rats be cleared out of the FBI and the rest of the DOJ? And when will Comey and McCabe be indicted?
Gonzalez hits on some of the more flagrant excesses of our rainbow overlords. And I thought the Supreme Court was conservative. Guess it’s too busy.
Our Queer Decline
Vox reads a lot of stuff. This was a very good choice to link to.
Here’s a direct link to the article itself.
Max Boot is one of the most contemptible of the NeverTrumpers. This review of him and his book is also extremely clear about why the NeverTrumpers are anything but conservatives.
The Climate Alarmists are getting scared.
“On March 5, 58 senior military and national security leaders sent a letter to President Trump denouncing his plan to form a National Security Council panel to take a critical look at the science underpinning climate change claims. Their objections to such a Red Team effort were basically that the “science is settled.”
But if the science is settled, what are they afraid of? Wouldn’t a review of the science come to the same conclusion as the supposed consensus of climate scientists?”
I liked this little dig at the end
“In 1931, after being informed a book had been published titled “100 Authors against Einstein,” Albert Einstein responded, “Why 100 authors? If I were wrong, then one would have been enough!” As Michael Crichton once said, “There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”
Nice little round-up, and a snappy title. Tucker is the Man but is there really ever a reason to go on a show called “Bubba the Love Sponge Show.”?
You Can’t Cuck the Tuck
Back in 2016 when Michael Anton was Publius Decius Mus on the Journal of American Greatness, John Marini’s pseudonym was Cato the Elder. Anton admits that Marini’s posts were the most unpopular possibly because they were the most intellectually challenging. Marini’s field of expertise is the metastatic cancer that is the Administrative State, also known as the “Swamp.” Anton here tells us that Marini has a book called, “Unmasking the Administrative State.” Marini is a big brain so without a doubt this will be a heavy slog for the man on the street. Rather than recommending reading this book, which I’m not even sure I’ll read, read Anton’s article about it. He is always a worthwhile read and is a good way to see the bigger picture that’s behind the latest outrage that the Swamp is perpetrating on us on any particular day.
Back when I was a kid in Brooklyn the Mafia was a much more pervasive phenomenon. But since the FBI put John Gotti away it seems NY Mafia activity has been in a coma. But now news arrives that the head of the moribund Gambino crime family has been rubbed out in front of his Staten Island home. He was run over and shot six or seven times. But, at least in the NYC papers the most important aspect of the rubout was the disrespect shown by doing it in front of his house where his family had to see it.
We have fallen on hard times indeed. Apparently, a crime boss’s home is no longer a safe space. Perhaps the Left can work on that. After all hurt feelings are real.
This guy was molested as a child and because of his confusion convinced himself he was transgender but when he realized that he wasn’t a woman, the courts allowed him to be “non-binary.” And eventually he realized he was just a screwed up man. But he tells how the LGBTQ movement and the medical and court groups push this stuff along even when it means screwing up and even mutilating kids.
I Was America’s First ‘Nonbinary’ Person. It Was All a Sham.
He just lays it right out there. Nothing that hasn’t been said a million times on the Dissident Right but when do you ever see this stuff on the big cable networks. Spot on.
