One recalls former FBI Director James Comey pardoned—err, declined to prosecute—Hillary Clinton over her email shenanigans, back in July of 2016. It truly was a shock to see Mr. Comey make the case against Mrs. Clinton, reeling off various things she had done, undeniably criminal in nature, and in the very next moment declare that no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute her for such obviously criminal activity.
I remember thinking, at the time … There must be some reasonable prosecutor … somewhere! … who would pursue such a strong case against Hillary. In fact, I’d call it a slam dunk. This just doesn’t add up.
Since Mr. Comey cleared the way for Hillary to continue her ill-fated run for the presidency, we’ve learned more of the story, of the Deep State—in which James Comey was a key player—and their well-documented efforts to preserve and promote Hillary’s candidacy, while simultaneously harming Donald Trump’s.
One recalls, also, numerous accounts surfacing shortly after President Trump’s 2016 election victory, stories of alleged ‘collusion’ between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives to subvert the very election Mr. Trump had just won. Though largely attributed to ‘anonymous’ sources, the Liberal Media Complex promoted the story with abandon and glee, investing heavily in their own narrative.
I remember thinking, at the time … Something about this, the way the establishment Left uniformly promotes it, gives me pause. I can’t put my finger on it exactly, but this doesn’t add up. In fact, it stinks.
In the months since then, thanks to investigations by determined congressional Republicans (despite obstruction from congressional Democrats), as well as determined reporting by a few journalists (to the indifference of the Liberal Media Complex), we’ve learned that operatives in the Clinton campaign, the DNC and the Obama Administration concocted a false narrative of ‘Russian collusion’ in order to compromise, if not end outright, President Trump’s campaign and later his fledgling administration.
Now, in the days leading up to the 2018 midterm elections, we have another disturbing narrative, of bombs being sent to prominent Democrat politicians and other high-profile, outspoken liberals. Despite the gravity of the situation, and before the full story was even known, establishment politicians and liberal media cynically pounced to blame it all on President Trump. It is a disturbing indication of how polarized and dangerous our politics have become.
As I find myself thinking … Something about this just doesn’t add up. The timing alone, within two weeks of election day, is suspect. Add in the nature of the story—twelve oddly assembled explosive devices, none of which exploded to cause injury, and a suspected perpetrator who looks right-wing crazy enough to have come from central casting—along with the manner in which the story unfolded, as though tailor-made to give Democrats and the liberal media an advantageous narrative.
Surely there is more to learn about this story’s origins and trajectory. Surely this is not some scripted, decrepit stunt. However, in view of the circumstances and past experience, many observers are skeptical.
Hard to blame them.
