In the days since the "election," I have been continually amazed that a handful of heretofore relatively trustworthy (or so I thought) figures (e.g., on the left Judy Woodruff, on the right Bret Baier) have so quickly waved away all talk of elekshun phr0d as "baseless." [You will no doubt be able to work out why the intentional misspelling is necessary, since a proper spelling would only hasten the day when some unseen hand—not God's—is bound to intervene.] Time and again I have asked: At what point did the media cut all ties between itself and the imperative to investigate anything? And truth be told, not even a vast conspiracy of big tech, social media, mainstream media, the Democrat party, establishment Republicans, all the many agencies of the intelligence community, and all their partners around the world can manage to keep this cat in this bag. There is too much cat, not enough bag, and what bag there is is already shredded because the cat is really pissed.
As narratives go, the author behind all these is really fourth rate at best. Who is wielding this pen, anyway? Surely not Mr. Rhodes. No, it is truly a den of thieves and liars that cannot get their story straight, but I rather suspect the main figure is one who is notable for the difficulty he has finishing his own books.
As for the press, all these former "journalists" do is parrot the "narrative" garbage that is fed to them. The only conclusion I can come to is that they are completely bought and paid for, and therefore not a "free press" and by extension not really entitled to the constitutional projections thereof, or else they are just plain lazy, willfully blind, and cannot be bothered. Either way, I have found they are no longer worthy of the time and attention of this member of their former audience.
And if you have not read the three (!) Navarro reports, you should.
As for the latest "impeachment," it is amply clear enough to me — from a lifetime of observing (in art, literature, film, human nature, etc.) how the bigger a lie gets the wilder and more ridiculous are the tantrums designed to distract from it — that this is just one massive head-fake freak-out to draw attention away from the above. Indeed, I think it is in the running for the biggest lie ever told, so the freak-out in response to the searchlights hovering overhead to expose it is going to be of epic, yes, even biblical, proportions.
