See A Conspiracy Theory About a Conspiracy by Daniel Greenfield (Sultan Knish).

Excerpt:
...President Trump didn’t erode trust in institutions, institutions eroded trust in themselves by enlisting in a partisan campaign. The partisan agenda has always been plainly obvious because these investigations inevitably lead back to the Clinton campaign and its political allies. Unlike the media’s conspiracy theories about Trump conspiring with the Russians to win the election by posting ads on Facebook, the collusion between government agencies and the Democrats is an open book. Many of the media’s conspiracy theories about Trump, such as the Clinton-Steele dossier, the conspiracy’s founding text, originated from that collusion between political operatives and government officials....

      Is it really necessary to keep telling us that? You never used to. Seems ki'nd of silly to me. What is it –- new software that's making you do it?

      Not annoyed, just curious.

      As Lewis Carroll said, "Things just get curiouser and curiouser." They really do, don't they?

      Shakespeare said something that pertains too, but it just slipped my alleged mind.

  2. talk about spreading paranoia..."Let's attack Trump's SCOTUS CHOICE!! ...oh....he hasn't chosen one yet? oh. Well, let's attack, anyway...and let's keep saying PRO CHOICE PRO CHOICE because whoever he picks WILL 'get rid of Roe Wace'" ....when, really, the chances of that even coming up at the SCOTUS again are slim. But, people are hearing this, and that's what counts to the leftwing media "GET IT OUT THERE, true or not!"

  3. I will be happy to attack the possible SCOTUS pick of Kavanaugh. It is reported that he headed up the Starr review of the death of Vince Foster.This is the only time in history that an Independent Counsel was ordered to include evidence of a cover-up by his own investigators in his own Report.
    He is a swamp creature..now on the D.C.Court.. there..wearing my tin foil proudly and happy to paranoid.
    The same FBI folks that did the review were the ones that did the original report.

    1. "Ordered" to include evidence of cover-up? SO, isn't that whistle blowing?

      Delete
    2. First as a point of reference.The American news media falsely reported that Starr’s report was 114-pages long, concealing the existence of the appendix, which made it 137 pages long.

      The appendix includes copies of twenty-five federal investigative records, proving six areas of cover-up. The FBI in the review were the very same agents who did the original investigation. The court ruled that the appendix had to be included which refuted the original report.
      Sound familiar?

  5. How could anyone argue against the assertion that a heavy bias exists against Mr. Trump when the news media both print and TV, the entrenched, unelected, bureaucracy that runs D.C. and can't be fired, the elected political establishment in both parties, the television industry, Hollywood, popular music, Broadway, and a large majority of those involved in education at all levels have nothing at all good to say about the president and his supporters and continually revile them, yet find nothing questionable about, or any reason to criticize, the previous admnistration, or Hillary and Bill Clinton, the Clinton money machine, the FBI, the CIA, the DoJ, the IRS, and ... you name it.

    Under these crcumstances, which Mr. Greenfield outlines and enumerates very well what else could you call it BUT a de facto conspiracy?

    1. "[people] have nothing at all good to say about the president and his supporters and continually revile them, yet find nothing questionable about, or any reason to criticize, the previous admnistration, or [other people]"

      I don't think there's much correlation between reviling Trump and steadfastly defending Obama and other Democrats. Most people I meet from the left reserve at least some criticism for the Democratic leadership and the institutions you listed; and I meet plenty from the right who are also appalled by Trump.

    2. Ever one of us sees life through a unique prism. I doubt if there's any way to get around that or to remedy it. I suspect reality is much too big and too complex for any individual to comprehend fully.

      So, we are fated to live in endless disagreement, because most of us tend to mistake what we perceive as individuals or what pleases us for a comprehensive understanding of what is and is not real, right or wrong.

      Unfortunately we become hostile, accusatory and defensive too easily over our differences when we should, instead, be merely curious.

      Also we should take into accunt our capacity to fall prey to the power of suggestion by intellects stronger, more articulate, or more possessed by a particular set of convictions than our own.

      It's not always easy to tell the difference between honest tuition and tendentious sophistry.

      Also, what's true for one person may not be true for another. Unfortunately, we rarely consi[der that possibility/

    3. Unfortunately we become hostile, accusatory and defensive too easily over our differences when we should, instead, be merely curious.

      Good point. So many become so wed to the left v. right schism [as if there are only two positions on any issue] that they use the divide as a litmus test in all things...including Patriotism....which ironically, cheapens the notion in the process.

    4. Exactly, CI. Because patriotism isn't a L->R dualism. It's a Globalist -> Nationalist one.

    5. True, but even more plays into the paradigm, such as one's religious faith...or lack of.

  6. I like the way Mr. Greednfield ends the article:

    "... [T]he conspiracy to spread the conspiracy theory is real, and its roots have been tracked back through the media, the government and back to the Clinton campaign. While the Clinton-Steele dossier is a series of bizarre, unfounded allegations, alternately described as non-credible, or as so secret that the Russians would kill for it by its proponents, the conspiracy to seed it into an investigation and the media is not a theory [it's a fact].

    "We know how it happened. We know how it was done. We know who paid for it, who the central players were and why they did it.

    "That’s not a theory. It’s a conspiracy."

  7. Another quotation from the article that demonstrates irrefutable logic:

    "Suggesting that the nation’s first billionaire president is a genius is an opinion, not a conspiracy theory. On the other hand, proposing that the New York Times is biased against Trump is an indisputable fact."

    1. Thanks for weighing in, Franco.

      I've been inordinately busy lately because we have out-of-town company visiting here. So, I haven't even tried to respond to all comments.
