Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. More Unforced Errors?

 

Rats. . . Or is this more evidence of panic on the left? Are the Democrats, the Deep State, and their media minions freaking out, racking up penalties on both offense and defense, because of increasingly effective pressure from the Trump team? Consider their responses in the first 48 hours after American special operators successfully raided the rat hole of the now dead terror chief of ISIS, a man who would be caliph.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Two Announcements and Two Headlines

 

Sunday was a good day for America. Overnight, between Saturday and Sunday, a joint operation by our nation’s elite forces, with assistance from the real intelligence community (not the headquarters cabal), ended in the death of the ISIS terrorist group’s chief, a would-be caliph, and seizure of significant amounts of high-value information.

President Trump, immediately after confirmation, alerted Americans that he would make a significant announcement on Sunday at 9 a.m. He made the statement and either before or after called Sen. Lindsey Graham, resulting in a second press statement at the White House. Meanwhile, the Washington Post fully justified its mass cancellation by not only the Executive Branch but also any decent American. No, Mr. President, I am still not tired of all the winning.

I watched the Spielberg movie “The Post” a few days ago. It is an amazing movie covering the publication of the Pentagon Papers by the Washington Post, then owned by Katherine Graham (Meryl Streep) and edited by Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks). One expects the best from Spielberg. However, it bothered me that the movie needlessly […]

We’re going to be hearing a great deal (including, I hope, here on Ricochet) about Bob Woodward’s new book Fear, to be published on Sept. 11th and currently the No. 1 bestselling book on Amazon. If even half the stories it contains regarding the insanity and dysfunction of Trump’s White House are true, the US […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. WaPo Columnist’s Tour of Deceit Shamefully Stains the Weekly Standard

 

About a year ago, I revealed that the Washington Post’s “Criminal Justice” columnist is a charlatan who has failed to do the most basic research. In that PJ Media column, I showed that cop critic Radley Balko openly admits to have never actually observed police work, despite having written a 400-page book on the problems with SWAT teams as observes them … but, uhm, yeah … he never actually observed one to write the book. See the problem? He doesn’t. He dismisses the question as “irrelevant.”

Notably, the Washington Post doesn’t see the problem either. They rejected the PJ Media column that would have informed their readers of their own columnist’s hollow credentials. One wonders what else they might be hiding.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Washington Post (Again) Omits Its Least Favorite Statistic

 

Last weekend, the Washington Post published its annual misrepresentation of police uses of lethal force around the country. “Fatal Force” is the round-up the Post has published for each of the last three years, analyzing data it started collecting after the 2014 Ferguson incident. The Post discovered that the FBI’s data on such incidents was capturing barely half of them, and decided to do the job themselves. The fact that local police are not beholden to Federal masters is lost on the statists at the Post, but the database does an admirable job of informing the national conversation on this local issue.

The 2017 data showed that police use of lethal force continues to be very consistent. For each of the last three years, police have killed between 963 and 996 suspects (a variance of barely three percent), almost all of them unquestionably justified. While yaktivists would like you to believe that most police killings are murders, they are distinctly not. And while the Shaun Kings of the world will immediately try to present the subjects of such sad events (like last weekend’s shooting in North Little Rock, AR) as good students who were the victims of racial profiling, it is almost inevitable that the evidence, such as this video, shows the subject did something like try to shoot two police officers who had just told him not to worry about having “a little weed.”

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Radley Balko Finds a Good Cop. And He’s A, Well…

 

The folks among Black Lives Matter, radical Libertarians and “police reform activists” would have you that they don’t really want any harm to come to police officers. They simply want to prevent harm to people the police are dealing with.

They want you to believe they reject the idea that “The only good cop is dead cop.” But, the strange thing is they never quite seem to be able to say what a “good cop” is when it comes to actually dealing with dangerous people.

We are, as Scott Adams notes, in the middle of a mass public hysteria. To people outside the current mass hysteria, it’s obvious that Donald Trump is not a Russian puppet, that Mike Pence has no desire to electrocute gay teenagers, and … most of all… that racism is not running amok in the country.
