"Steele Dossier" revelations, Danchenko and connection to Clinton. Some journalists are finally taking note, like Jonathan here.

The activists on the left came up with interesting counter-narrative. Let's investigate.
Lefty activists' counter-narrative, part 1:
"the information was accurate, it was just passed through unexpected channels".

Wow, a barefaced assertion of "nothing to see here". Of course the information was bogus.
"Trump did worse by sharing *muh confidential data*". It's a weird one; as far as I can tell it hinges on The Guardian (lol) reporting.
Back in 2020, The Guardian (lol) posted a hit piece stuffed to brim with keywords. "Willingness to pass on confidetnial material to alleged Moscow agents".

Note the hedging.
"Confidential material", discussed in context of then-President, and in context of national security. Wow.

It was Trump's campaign's internal data, polling conducted pre-election, confidential to the campaign itself only. But all the scary keywords still in play in 2021
The current outrage over "Steele Dossier" and "Trump Russia" hoaxes is *at the press*, which back then did spread those in attempt to sink Trump, and also decorated themselves "defenders of truth".

The leftist activists & the media pretend there's no outrage. Jim got it right
So you wanted a chart

rise of experts as symptom of breakdown of societal structures.

for subjects too large, or too long running for one person to reasonably observe, we used to have societal structures to hold memory and form opinions.

now that's offloaded onto experts for hire.
we end up nonsense such as certain draconian measures in the pandemic, varying climate change predictions that always point to one and same solution, and topsy-turvy energy sector policy.

and we are told "only experts can form opinions on those".
note that forcing whole society to act, expeditiously and laboriously, on plans that the society is not convinced to, is immoral and evil.

both directly, and also as creating structures & cultural norms for further such evils.

thanks go to @gunpolicy for bringing attention to this NYTimes article.

this particularly bad NYTimes article. let's read.
multiple lies in the opening paragraph.
also contradicts later in the article.

truth: guns are growing in popularity in US; millions of new gun owners in recent years, due to disastrous cultural & cime problems.
>more violent crime
both research and practice shows time and time again that armed society is polite society

>judicial hostility
the constitution of the union. doesn't get any more blatant than that.

>growing movement
astroturfed propaganda. gun ownership shows clear tend.

in XVII century then-modern medicine made childbirth a medical procedure, performed at hospital in standardized manner.

this made systematic one of the risks to the mother - death from "puerperal fever", a bacterial infection that thrived in the serially performed procedure.
the form of the procedure & other hospital work, and the risks to the mother were back then broadly accepted by the medical community.

the risk to the mother was very high by today's standards:
a hungarian doctor proposed in 1847 *washing hands* of the practitioners with an early form of antiseptic as practical way of reducing the risks of mortality to below 1%.

this was supported by his subsequent scientific work, and by observation of the results in the hospital. physician and scientist Ignaz Semmelweis

in which @MrPrudentialist documents a particularly nasty example of
the progs baiting a new civil war

the title: 100%
the progs won't stop until you follow their ever-changing rules to the T.

a good point about *language manipulation*, and dripping contempt

worth noting how calls for unity by the ruling elite are calls to *obey*.
let's disagree a bit why my esteemed colleague:

>there's been a growing sentiments
>for some kind of national separation

with the blue tribe having a death grip on the comms and on the narrative-making, i surmise the sentiment is being *pumped* rather than grown organically.

consider 4 right-wing powers:
- building a successful organization for your family and your tribe
- getting rich, passing that on
- leading people
- teaching & raising the next generation

those have been deeply undermined through progressive legislation and cultural artifacts
in particular legislation that mandates you have to include blue-tribe people in your organization
- you can't simply pick anybody.

and the blue-tribe members get gov aid in dismantling (suing) your organization according to their own sensibilities (tilted playing field).
you can't amass money for your own family & tribe, the gov redistributes it to *competing* others.
