🔶BY Charles Hurt🔶 At this point in the 2016 election, the sitting president had already weaponized the federal government into a sprawling covert-spy operation against the man who had just been elected president. It would be years, however, before guilty parties even admitted that they had, indeed, used the government to spy on their political opponents at the height of a national election. So please, spare me all the pearl-clutching over President Trump and 70 million American citizens who are today rightly suspicious about whether this latest election was stolen. All the experts in the political press assured us — with mountains of polling “evidence” — that Mr. Trump would lose this election in a double-digit landslide. And he would take half the Republican Party down with him. That did NOT happen. In many ways, they were even more wrong this time than they were in 2016. So please, shove it where your head has been these past four years as Mr. Trump pursues every available legal option in these races that have turned out to be so razor-close that anyone remotely interested in fair and honest elections would want a closer, careful look. For four years now, the decent citizens of this country have suffered through the unhinged mental breakdown of the national political media, baying like crazed hounds chasing after the craziest conspiracy theories that foreign governments could come up with. Some of the most deranged toilet hounds still cling to the dirtiest scraps from Moscow hotel rooms. So please, Twitter, curb yourself. If you want to tag conspiracy theories on your stupid “platform,” start with the ones that have been peddled by the Kremlin during the entire Trump administration. And it’s not just the national media that’s exposed itself. At the highest levels of government, elected officials have proven themselves to be dishonest, corrupt, and willing to embrace the most implausible conspiracy theories — so long as they can be used against President Trump. It all culminated in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s craven, fraudulent pursuit of impeachment over a phone call that took place 18 months AFTER her impeachment inquiry began.
