Do you feel the same way about the people who reported the Steele material?

On Twitter, Facebook, and the dangerous new double-standard:

Poor Jeff Toobin is going to have to cure cancer and invent time travel to keep the words "Zoom" and "dick" out of his obituary.

Okay. Tell me how it’s misinformation?

Why it matters that the entire mainstream press is non-reporting the Biden emails (or falsely labeling them disinformation): they’re likely to be charged soon with challenging a Biden administration. If they’re already lying on his behalf, it makes them politicians, not press.

If the emails were pushed by a foreign government, or stolen, or stolen and sold, all of that is relevant - but a separate issue from their veracity. You can’t lump all those things together under one umbrella term like “dubious” or “disinformation.”

Gotta love the new anti-speech generation. You people make Tipper Gore seem like Lenny Bruce.

"The least curious people in the country right now appear to be the credentialed news media, a situation normally unique to tinpot authoritarian societies."

The flow of information has become so politicized, by an increasingly brazen union of corporate press and tech platforms, that it’s impossible for American audiences to see news about certain topics absent mountains of propagandistic contextualizing.


LOL. Barack Obama is going to love this interview his former DIA James Clapper just gave to CNN about the Durham probe: “It’s frankly disconcerting to be investigated for having done... what we were told to do by the president of the United States.”

Everyone seems to think the censorship movement won't come for them. If you think for yourself, it eventually will.

I know everyone is tired of hearing this, but the number of bombshell stories from the last four years that turned out later to be wrong or over-hyped is astounding.

On air with Maria Bartiromo right now, Schrage played a tape he made of Stefan Halper saying General Michael Flynn was "really fucked," just two days before Flynn's call to Sergei Kislyak was leaked to the Washington Post. The recording is here:

This is why the Horowitz report is about more than the FISA application. Anonymous law enforcement sources were leaking major news stories they must have known were not reliable. Reporters who ran this stuff should be furious, and they don’t seem to be.

The purging of nonwhite citizens from voter rolls is an escalating national crisis.

Congratulations, America, you've turned the presidency into a four-year Alex Jones broadcast.
