Arrogance and Delusion

 

What do you do with citizens in this country who are unable to grasp reality, but believe they know more than everyone else? What do you do when those people believe the rest of us are a threat to them, to their power, and to the Country? You call them out, over and over again. Two foolish and absurd statements that were made most recently were by Katie Couric and Representative Steve Cohen.

Katie Couric began her career in television and is still seen in guest appearances, such as on the Bill Maher show. She calls herself a journalist and is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. On Bill Maher’s show, she responded to a question from Maher on the state of the country and wondered how all of us who had supported Trump could be “de-programmed,” having been brainwashed by the Trump charisma.

Distortions, Donald Trump, and COVID-19

 

At The Federalist, Mollie Hemingway reveals the disturbing results of a Harris poll regarding the Trump/Russian collusion. Many of the original reports were clear distortions or lies put out by the mainstream media, particularly CNN, and yet most of the public after all this time don’t see the “collusion” was a hoax. Hemingway makes the following observation:

CNN’s original story on the dossier was ‘Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him’ but when the dossier was definitively discredited, it downplayed or ignored the finding, instead going with ‘How the FBI attempted to verify a salacious allegation in the Steele dossier.’

So if [Jake] Tapper was upset that 32 percent of the public thought the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign, and it did, how upset must he be that 53 percent believe what his network falsely peddled for years? A majority of Americans — and 81 percent of liberals, the group CNN caters to — believe that Trump colluded with Russia.

As the Three Queens of the Orient have been speaking out against the status quo, they are making themselves known. You know them: Ilhan Omar from Somalia, Rashida Talib whose family came from Palestine, and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. Oh, you say AOC isn’t an Orient Queen. Well, let’s not quibble; I’m sure her friends would be […]

This is all too typical nowadays. How much further can this sheep-like divorce from reality and common sense go? (Although ‘common’ sense is no longer common) Will people ever rebel against this delusional lunacy? The Emperor’s New Clothes is now the most needed text in America. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/apr/18/college-students-struggle-tell-white-man-he-isnt-c/ Preview Open

Earlier today, I published what I believe to be an ironclad argument as to why I should be the next associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. The argument can be summarized thusly: 1. There are no real requirements for the Court, and so I am not disqualified. And I am, in […]
