The Monstrous Lie Behind CrowdStrike

Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 presidential election was predicated largely on the claim Russian intelligence had hacked the Democratic National Committee’s servers ahead of the November election. Russia’s guilt is such an article of faith among our political class that a Republican-controlled Congress imposed sanctions on Russia and President Trump signed on, substantially worsening

Impeachment Was Cover for CrowdStrike and Democrats Got What They Wanted

A lot of people are laughing at the huge mistake the Democrats made by trying to impeach President Trump. Besides being stuck with Trump, the argument goes, they may also pay a heavy price in November for single-mindedly pursuing impeachment without being able even to gesture at any underlying crime. But it might be a

Horowitz’s Gift to the Nation’s Enemies

The report released Monday by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz gives something to people on both sides of America’s acrimonious political divide. But it’s hard not to conclude that that the president and his supporters got the short end of the stick. It might not seem that way since Horowitz gave them the

The Press Gang That Couldn’t Keep Its Story Straight

No one disputes that when Joe Biden was vice president, he threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees from the Ukrainian government unless it replaced the state's lead prosecutor, Viktor Shokin. But the Washington Post is pushing a funny narrative about Biden's motives. The reason Biden wanted Shokin fired had nothing whatsoever to

Debra Katz Strikes Again

The one-year anniversary of Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee is almost upon us, and her attorney, Debra Katz, is at it again. I don’t mean that Katz is once again engaging in politically motivated slander of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Though she is. That’s just par for the course. What’s more surprising is

What the Justice Department’s Decision Not to Prosecute Comey Tells Us

Well, it looks like those of us waiting for a little justice to be delivered in the matter of Spygate will have to wait a little longer. Though Inspector General Michael Horowitz issued a report making it clear that former FBI Director James Comey broke the law by leaking classified material, in a sickening echo

Russian Hack or CrowdStrike Ruse?

Robert Mueller may live to regret indicting Roger Stone. Stone is the long-time Republican political operative who made headlines in January when he was hauled out of his home by a squad of FBI agents adorned in tactical gear and carrying M4 rifles. The ostentatious display of force seemed made for television. And

CNN is More Dangerous Than Banned Voices

Well, the gradual censorship of right-wing voices took another lurch forward this week. Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Paul Joseph Watson are now all banned permanently from Facebook and their subsidiary, Instagram. In fact, the tech giant that controls almost three-quarters of all social media interactions doesn’t just want to silence

Christina Blasey Ford’s Polygraph Was B.S.

The fact that Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers refused to release the results of her polygraph exam until the day before her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last month caused some suspicion. And when we finally got a look at them, a lot of Judge Kavanaugh’s supporters were confirmed in their suspicions. It turned out
