Americans Say ‘Yes’ – There Is Liberal Bias In Most Media

Anonymous Op-Ed: I Am Part Of The Resistance Within The Trump Administration, New York Times

CS Commentary: If anyone needed proof that the Deep State exists, this Op-Ed certainly provides it. The writer’s hypocrisy never shines through more clearly than when he holds up John McCain as the great national example and points to the views expressed in his Farewell Letter: “We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.” This a farewell letter that extols ideals above common sense, ignores God, and that the writer uses to embrace a form of ‘tribalism’ against the President – as McCain exhibited in his later days. The writer narcissistically makes himself ‘King’ of his own version of the American ‘tribe.’ The last time we checked President Trump was duly elected and he is still the President. Trump’s tweet of “Treason?” does not seem far off.

Understanding ‘Q’ Is A Massive Undertaking

Exposed – Creator of ‘Qanon’ Speaks For The First Time, Jack Prosobiec, One America News

CS Commentary: Common Sense Interpretation published a comprehensive and objective analysis on ‘Q’ on Medium on 8/23/18 (see link below) that concluded that ” to believe that ‘Q’ is legitimate involves major leaps of faith over multiple inconsistencies in data.” This article by Prosobiec, one of the initial propagators of the de-bunked Pizzagate conspiracy who eventually recanted his part in that phenomenon appears to de-bunk and expose ‘Q’. Prosobiec now works for One America News, a pro-Trump network. This ‘proof’ is unlikely to convince ‘Q’ disciples. However, this, plus the preponderance of evidence presented in our report below in Editor’s Choice certainly raises ‘reasonable doubt’ that Q is genuine – and means that more likely than not ‘Q’ is a prank or a fraud. Ultimately though, one has to admit – as even Praying Medic has said – no one knows the identity of ‘Q.’ That still remains true.

‘Democracy Dies In Darkness’ – Let Us Help By Turning Off The Lights: The Washington Post And CNN’s Jake Tapper Both Lie About Healthcare, Again, You Tube

CS Commentary: We are not familiar with this guy, but he does a great job of exposing the lies of the MSM – and the Koch Brothers – on Healthcare in the first 7 minutes, even though the overall analysis seems to support government sponsored health care for all – or Bernie Sander’s plan for healthcare. For the critique on Jake Tapper see the first 10 minutes. If you want to hear some good analysis of what it means to fact check, listen through the 16:00 mark, at least. For other good stuff on Tapper’s incompetent, dishonest analysis listen through 23:00. Warning: expletives are involved, and prepare to laugh.

A Former CIA Operative On The State Of US Intelligence And How Well Trump Is Doing His Job, Ben Weingarten, The Federalist

CS Commentary: A CIA insider talks about the corruption in top levels of government, particularly the CIA, how we won in Iraq and Afghanistan then messed them both up, how the Chinese are ‘eating our lunch’, terrorists flowing across the Southern border, and the bureaucratic dismantling of the US intelligence operation globally. A must-read. Quote: “Donald Trump represents a transformation. Revolution is probably an accurate term to use. I don’t know when the last time is we have seen such a thing….I should say as an aside in regard to the Russian thing, the entire assertion of Russian collusion, the collusion between Donald Trump and Russian intelligence, is ludicrous.”

What The Future Holds For Those Ignorant Of Islam: The Battle of Yarmuk – The Most Consequential Battle In World History, Raymond Ibrahim

CS Commentary: The war and actions described here were waged against the West by direct heirs of Muhammad within years of his death. They reflect the beliefs and practices of Muhammad himself. As we have said repeatedly here: You can not separate a religion from the nature, character, and actions of its founder. If you do it is no longer that religion. As Ibrahim says, “It bears noting that if most Westerners today are ignorant of that encounter and its ramifications, they are even more oblivious as to how Yarmuk continues to serve as a model of inspiration for modern-day jihadis (who, we are regularly informed, are “psychotic criminals” who have “nothing to do with Islam”).“ He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Quotes Of The Month:

“We actively edit out things that don’t fit our expectation, even when they are right in front of us! So you can’t even believe your own eyes, let alone the reports of others. If sobriety is the unfortunate side-effect of a lack of alcohol, then sanity is the transient absence of attractive delusions. Like a stopped clock, we’ll all get it right sometimes! In theory this effect should give each of us considerable humility in our forthright opinions, but that appears rarely to be the case (myself included).” – Martin Geddes
